H. Henry, eq lWior HrooUutren Ledger: Mv Dk.vii Sin: To your luquliy I might succinctly inply that I am not a candidate fur tho olllco of United Stalos Sjnator or Mlsils slppl, nnd do notdeslro to bo olcclod to that position. Your uniform filondshlp nud oarly ndvoc.icy of mo for tint high sUtlon entitle you to a full statement of tho reasons which control me lu this matter. Assuming what, In view of recent events, Is by no moans prob.ihle.th.it tho rcntilsltn mi- Joilty of Congross would romovo my political uisauiiuios nun mus spiro our Slato the nllront of denying to hor tho right to chooso her own Itcprcsotit.itlve, I proceod to consider tho case hypothetlcilly presontod. Holding that tho porsoinl wishes or prlvato advantage of an Individual should not eutor Into his selection for n public trust, I do not tho loss gratefully approclato tho generous preforonco for mo which you glvo assurance is outertalued by n majority of tho peoplo of Mis sissippi, Thu best roturn I cin in iku for such kindness Is to Insist that tho only consideration shall bo ns to what will best promote tlio wcl f iro and prosperity of tho Stato. Tho vital issuo liofora tho country Is tho contest between Stato Itlghts and consolida tion, Or, in othor ivoitl, hotwoim tho Con stitution oa it w.is adopted and Interpreted by tho fatliois, or tho unrestricted will of tho uiijoilty. The first Is liberty; tho last is des potism. Tho supremacy of law Is Indispensable to tho preservation of popular freedom, and whether tho ruler, who is a law unto himself, ho ono mm or a multitude, tho result is allko a despotism. Tho chocks and balances, tho distribution of powori nnd tho cautious reservation lu tho touth artlclo of tho amendments, which wero as conditions unnoted to the compict between tlio States, all dlstluotly show tho purposo to orgaulzoa general Government which should bo responsible to tho States and their peoplo. Suroly, tho blood of tho Itovolutlon had not been shed merely to ofl'ect n change of masters. It was for sol f-govorinnout that the Statos do cl.iirod their iiidopuudouco, and fought until thoy wero sovcrally acknowledged to bo freo nud independent nations. Thoroughly convinced that tho restoration of tho Idoas and practices of tho fouiiduis and oaily administrators of the General Govern ment is tsso one thing essential to secure tho liberty, safety nnd happiness of tho pooploof tho States nud their posterity, the point for deliberation beforo nusworliH J'our question w.is, whether I could, as a United States Sen ator, bo usolul iu attaining til it end. Tho other political questions which agitato tlio cuuntiy nro, iu my estimation, so subordinate that I think, after tho contemplated restora tion, they could all bo easily nnd li.innilv ad justed. Tuklng as rur as ono may in a matter affect ing himself, tho attitude of n disinterested party iu this discussion, I will first rom irk, what is equally known to you, that lu tho Noithciu mind thcio is an uutcasoulug oppo sition lo thedootiiiio of Stato Itlghts; and that my assertion of it, with whatever conclusion weio ncccsiU'lly deducihlu Microform, ' hns uiitdo mo tho special object of section il hostil ity. It has thoioforo followed th it others could say, without moating e-ccltcinent, that, tho like of which, if uttered by mo, would be swollen nud dlstoied for lines iu pnitis.iu ngt tatlon. The future of the country needs that thoio should bo culm reflection, mid by tho light of hlstoiy tho relation of tho States to tho Union bo justly uud perma nently determined. So-uer or later thu principles to which lefuronco has beou made, will, I titist, by the foica of their inherent truth, vindicate themselves to tho common souse of our countrymen of every sec tion. To liaston tho consummation, Mississippi has many sous abler than I. From among them let ouo bo selected who has no political "disabilities" to obstruct bis admittance to thu Senate, nud against whom there aro no bitter prejudices to impair his usefulness. Did I dosiro to return to political life, tho considerations huielii picseutud would out weigh that desire. Hut tho fact Is tho ro verso. I'eisouilly, thcrofoie, wlillo lam grato fill to you for your advocacy, I do not wish to lo-cutcrtha United StatosSonato. To the pub lic considerations given might bs addod prlvato ic.isoiis, which, conjointly, under exist ing cHcuinst.incss, render mo aver.io to public station. You nioauthoilzed to announce that my namo wilt not be, with my consent, In cluded among thu candidates fur tho United States Senate to rcpioseut Mississippi iu that body. Fiom youth to ago It has boon mv prldo lo upiusont Mississippi iu military nud in civil service; nud I would that all her sous shuuld rcalUo that It Is bor intorcst which dictates my present decision.

And It Is safo lo say thoy all-rtiturntd from their visits wiser lu know ing moro tlian bofoio thoy wont, If not tu teaming oxactly what thoy wont for. In the first place, he had no disclosures to mako regaidlng tlio foreign appointments, whereupon oach sciibo Instantly mado a de duction In favor of his own porsoual favorite, ou tho basis, no doubt, that no nows is good hows. Hcnco tho dlspatchos sout "abroad" last night will liecessirlly conflict as far as thoy lolato to this subject, nnd Fonton wilt bo ahead In ouo locality, wlillo Fiollughuyscti wilt boom lu another, and Itiuwsy will ho quoted ubovo par elsowhoro, As rogiuds tho Fishery question, tlio Sccro tmy had vory llttlo lo say. It is understood, iiuwovci, that dining Ills recent visit to Canada this matter was Incidentally discussed lu casual conversations which occunod be tween hint uud thu Dominion otUcliils, tho lat ter clalmlug, perhaps, that they woio vested with tieaty-umklug poweu. It Is not bo lioved that tho Hccrctaiy admitted this claim, if It wm really aud earnestly made, for it it not to bo supposed that tho powers of tlio colonial government aro vicarious to tho ox- tent or completing n diplomatic convention. Ho had not received tho report of Collector llabson, who was sent to Canada somo time ago to mako certain requisite Investigations Into this question, aud it may be safely an nounced tint no now developments havo boon reached in this matter, Tho Seoiolary's visit to Canada win puroly ono of official or poisonnl ottlquotte, and lu re sponse to rcponted Invitations from Q ivoruor General Lome, nono of which ho had pre viously been ablo to accent, llo found tho Governor-General to bo n hospitable host aud cnnicstly and Intelligently dovntcd to tho dutlos of his now position, Tlio Pilncoss Louiso, ho said, is a charming young woman of great versatility of Intelligence, who is win ning golden opinions from tho people of tho Doinlnlon.by menus of horslmpllclty of charac ter and habitual gcnoroslty. If tho vicc-roynl couple shall visit tho United Statos, ns thoy undoubtedly will III duo coutso of time, before thoy return to England, ho thinks thol'ilu cess will mako a vory fnvorablo Impression upon our freo American citizens. Tho general political outlook In this country Is assuring, In his opinion, nnd tho desired re sult of Itepubllc.nl success seems lo be among Uncertainties of thu future. Tho vlctoiy iu Maine, ho thinks, is especially gratifying, and whilo Senator Dlaluo did not succeed in cap turing tho enemy In lino of battle, ho thinks ho should hi satlsllcd with tlio ceitalutythat bo will soon bo ablo to "sloop on tho llold." Ho has no doubt of tho success of tho Cornelt Ilosklus iiomlnitlous In New York; thinks the ticket will poll tho full Itcpublloaustrcugth, but knows that victory Is not to bo won un less it is earned. With this knowledge he propose) to Uko mi iioilvj jurt in thn cam paign, nud will tlierufoio mako suverai speeches iu tho Stato at tho nruner time certainly ouo at the Cooper Institute nt somo time yet tu be iixcu. ii Tin: xucnuw wi:i'i:i:.
