Money has writ ten a long letter to the Clarion ex plaining his opposition to the Texas Pucific railroad. He advocates the road beinti built by engaging the Union Pacific railroad company in the work, for tho reason that ihe road can thus bo completed in a shorter time than the Texas Pacific could doit, and without government aid. The obj-ction to Mr. Monpy's bill is that it will not do away with the monopoly now existiug, but by giving fie Union Pacific company an interest, (which would be by reason of its capital a controlling interest) in the road, would only swell the monopoly. At coy rate, we need N. O. Times. 1st. A sad calamity occurred Tuesday at me residence ot Mr. Max Vilter, over his drug store, near the Poy dras market, by which lour persons wero accidentally poisoned, and which caused tho death of Mr Lambert, the mother-in-law of Mr. V liter, nged 62 years. it seems mat several wreKS aero -r-r . . . . ( iir. v liter, whose house was over run with rats, mixed some cornmeal and arsenic and had this poison distributed mound. Tho servant girl kept the poison afterward, un known to anybody, in tho kitchen. and afterward left the services of the family. Yesterday Mr. Vilter ordered some oysters fried. His w.fe, while searching for cornmeal. found the package with the poisoued meal and used it. Immediately after eating ihe oys ters, Mr. and Airs. Vilter, Mrs. Lambert and the new servant girl wero attacked with vomiting and spasms. Mr. Vilter at onco thought tho poison, and, having all the necessary antidotes at hand, admin istered them to himself and the three others. All but Mrs. Lambert recovered ; the old lady, a relapse having set iu, died at 8 d. m. Meridian Mercury; We learu from a perfectly reliable gentleman, living in Kemper, that two letters, wri ien by Gilmer lo a Mr. Thom as W. Adams, of Tamola. in that county, a few days before the nssas sinaiion of Capt. John W. Gully, have recently been unearthed, and that they shed a flood of light on that dark and damning deed. Our informant has seen and read these letters, and thev furnish indubitable evidence that the sorelv calumniated people ol Kemper from the begin- iug put this horrible crime at the door of its real authors. The leueis are in safe lianas, and will we trust speedily be given to the public in full. It is due lo the prople of Kem per that the letters be given to the world without delay.

Aberdeen EAatnfner, We are in receipt of a circular from Mr. Charles Winklcy, of Jack son, who wants to be ''public prin ter." Mr. Winklcy says that he has had twenty-five years experlctice as a practical printer, and that he b lieves "the prices paid for tho pub ic printing arc too high." Now it is hard for us to reconcile the two statements, and wo can only do it ou tho hypothesis (hat Mr. Wink ley is bet'er on priming than he is on figures, for in 1872 ho figured on the state work in the interest of the radical state printer obtaining an array of totals that in some in stances nearly doubled those now paid the Clarion, claiming that they would only yield a moderate' profit on thd labor and material. In tho circular referred lo, Mr. Winkley uses ihe threadbare phn lanthropy dodge, proposing if elec led to "turn over to the public school fund 25 per cent, of tho uniouiit received for public print ing." but we do not suppose for a moment that thero is any member of the lecislatuie who will bo in fluenced by this unseetr.ly proposi tion. The state is amply able td look after her educational interests without icsorting to the silly and bungling process of making hei dis bursements through Mr. Winkley, or the miserable dodge of cloaking ex cessive expenditure in one depart ment under the head of appropria tions for another. Response lo "Pabiicola." Jackson Clarion. Pbextiss Co., Miss., Jan. 29, 1878. Editors Clarion: The article in the Clarion of the 27th, signed "Publicola," meets with a hearty response in this county. The many wnrm friends of Gov ernor stone, in this end ot the state, do not believe that he will so far forget his duty to the people who elected him, and to his own good name, as to appoint anyman to othce who aided in trying td perpetuate carpet-bag rule ia Mississippi. "Pnblicola drives the center all the way through, does credit to his brain, heart and patriotism, and de serves the thanks of tho bright stars in bolh tho legal and medical pro fessions of the state. Tho people are wide awake upon Ihis subject, and expect the governor and the senate to do their duty, and place none but good and true democrats in office. Wo I onto any who fail to do their duly in this trying hour. Democratic journals who advocate a different course do not deserve to lead tho people. Glad to sea tho Clarion right on this subject, as she generally is on all questions of great public concern. V eritas.
