The State Convention.
The State Convention will bo held
next Wednesday. Every candidate 1
that permits his name to go before i
it should do so with the feeling of i
of everything for the good of the
party—nothing for self; that if he
receives the nomination for the office '
to which he aspires he will nppreci ;
ate the compliment and honor con '
ferred and the contidencc manifest ,
ed, but iu case one of his opponents 1
is the lucky one to entertain for him
the kindest and best feelings aud
labor diligently for > liis election.
Let such be the animus of all
candidates aud when the labors of
the Convention shall have closed the
utmost harmony will prevail and
unity in the Democratic party as
sured, which at last is much more
to be desired than the nomination
of any particular man or set of men.
No Cause for Ceusuro.
As exchange says the Democratic
members of the U. S. Senate have
been censured a good deal for not
electing a President pro tern of the
Senate at the special session. They
deserve no censure. They had no
opportunity to elect a President pro
tern. The Vice President did not
vacate his seat at all, and un
til he was absent an officer to per
form his duties could not be elected.
This is the whole thing in a nut
shell Had the Democrats agreed to
elect Hon. Isliam Harris, of Tennes
see, Arthur would have vacated his
seat to permit them to do so, but
they did not choose to let the Re
publicans dictate to them whom
they should elect, and Harris him
self refused to accept the office thus
tendered him by the Republicans.
A Mistake.
A statement going the rounds of
tile press that a motion iu the Ya
zoo county Convention to instruct
delegates to the State Convention to
vote for Gwin for Auditor was ta
bled, is erroneous. A motion was
made to instruct for Maj. Barksdale
for Governor; a substitute was of
fered to instruct for alljMate officers,
which was lost, and the resolu
tion for Maj Barksdale adopted.
After the transaction of some other
business a motion to instruct for
Gwiu was made, and the point rais
ed that it was out of order, the sub
stitute having been lost. The Gwiu
resolution was withdrawn, and a
motion to reconsider the substitute
was lost, and thus the matter end
ed. These facts are given us by an
eye witness.
The Holly Springs South is for
Gen. Featherston for Governor. It
is strongly for him, and gives splen
did reasons why it thinks he should
be nominated. Its last issue con
tains four columns, thirty-seven dif
ferent articles, favoring him. Such
advocacy of a man for office is unu
sual in this State, and is the best of
evidence thht Geh. Featherston is
worthy of the highest office within
the gift of his people. Nothing can
speak better for a man than the en
dorsement of his home people. That
Gen. Featherston has in the fullest
measure.
Tnk President had a relapse 011
Saturday, which created considera
ble excitement. Dr. Hamilton, of
New York, and Dr. Agnew, of Phil
adelphia, were telegraphed for and
came on special trains. When they
arrived the President was sleeping
and was not disturbed. The next
day Dr. Agnew performed an opera
tion on the wound that caused the
pus to flow and afforded relief. Dr.
Bliss has pronounced the President
out of danger.
' The Lowndes county Convention
expressed its admiration for the dis
tinguished services rendered to his
party and State by that patriotic
citizen, 7/ou. W. 77. Sims. It en
, dorsed his record as Lieutenant
Governor and regretted that he re
fuses to permit the use of his name
for renomination at the August
Convention, and in so doing but
echoed the voice of thousands who
admire and appreciate exalted worth,
true manhood and brilliant talents
and attainments.

It speaks highly for a man to be cu

Laphain Elected
The contest at Albany has ended
by the election of Hon. E. G. Lap
ham as successor to Conkling in the
I'nited States Senate. A pigmy
thus succeeds a giant, the loss of
whose service to t lie Republican pai ty
will he fully felt, but the people of
the South have reason to congratu.
late themselves on the result. When
hearing of his defeat Conkling seat
the following telegram, which may
mean a great deal anil again may
mean nothing. What he lias refer
ence to when he says “the near fu

crown them with approval,” remains
to be seen:
New York, July 23.—When Mr.
Conkling received a dispatch advis
ing him of the election of Mr. Lap
ham, at Albany, he immediately
sent the following telegram:
New York, July 22,1881.
To Hon. Jarae3 Armstrong, Member
of the Assembly, Albany:
The heroic constancy of the
Spartan band, which has so long
stood for principle and truth, has
my deepest gratitude and admira
tion. Borne down by forbidden
and abhorrent forces and agencies,
which never before had sway in
the Republican party, in memory
their courage will long live in the
highest honor. The near future
will vindicate their wisdom and
crown them with approval. Please
ask them ail for me to receive my
most grateful acknowledgements.

Presidential SmallTalk.
The telegrams from Washington
thou ml in small talk about the
President. For instance read the
following sily twaddle. We are
afraid Garfield is having softening
nf the brain:
Oen. Swaim'a room is still the exper
imenting field. Tliut is our standing
joke. The President knows that all
these little and great dt vices are tried
ira Swairn, and cujoyBtulkiug over it.
Just now the apparatus for liftuu; the
President from his bed ia being ffied in
Swaim’s room, and the President gets
no amnll amount of comfort oat of the
thought that if Swann can be boiBted
around gracefully aud without personal
trouble it is very probable be will like
it also.
‘‘Is the President as lively as over?’’
“Yes; he never loses an opportunity
to'got off a joko. That offer of his oat
meal, which ho does not like a bit, to

boy’s joko about the castor oil.
Sunday School Convention.
Editor Brookuaven Ledger;—
Tho Mississippi State Sunday School
Convention was held in Jackson July
20th aud 2lBt. It was an occasion of
unusual iutereat. To sec so many of
the best men of our State, of the differ
ent churches,aud of all pursuits,assemb
led to promote a common interest,
“keeping the unity of the spirit in the
bond of peace,” wau truly edifyiug.
Denominational distinctions were, for
the time being obliterated, and all pres
ent seemed to draw closer together by
drawing closer to Christ. The Sunday
School interest lies near tho heart of all
true and intelligent Christians. The
Master said, “feed my lambs,” and ev
ery Christian heart feels tbo force of
this mandate. Therefore any concert
ed movement of Christianity like this,
calculated to promote the interest of so
important a cause, will enlist the pray
ers and efforts of the great heart at
tho church.
The next Convention is to be held in
Holly Springs, the time to be fixed by
the Executive Committee. Let Brook
haven apply for the next. It would do
us good, and “Btreugtheu that which is
weak-” It would "put to silenoe the
ignorance of .foolish men” who prate
about our religion being out of date.”
and "going down” etc. Meantime let
us more thoroughly organize our coun
ty Suu-lay School Convention. *

An Outrage in Yazoo.
Yazoo City, Miss,, July 25.—On
Saturday last, near Satartia, in the
county, a negro named Isaac Fisher
committed at outrage upon the persou
of a young white lady who was alone at
home, aud after the outrage choked her
and threw her down a cistern. Re
turning shortly and seeing her stand
ing up in the water which was not
moro than two feet deep, the fiend de
scended the rope and drowned her, bnt
could not get up the rope and being

in and he went down to rescue her but
too late. Upon examination by physi
cians it was seen that the victim had
beep ravished, and the negro, who had
been freed, was re arrested, and the
crowd agreed to hang him, but a major
ity present decided to hold him till af
ter the Coroner's iDqnest, and he was
to be hanged to-day, and doubtless ere
this the wretch lias met a deserved
death at the bauds of Jndgo Lynch.—
Vicksbury Herald.
On Monday the wretch was hung in
the presence of two or three hundred
people.
Fatal Shooting.
Special to Vicksburg Commercial.]

At about half past nine o’clock last

shooting waS*We almost instant killing
of Henry Cole, one of the fugitives,
and who had been iu and aronnd Ed

shooting is thought by our citizens to
have been wboly unnecessary as it must
have been done while the deceased oc
cupied a position immediately or Dear

nature of the wound which showed that
the ball entered the breast and ranging
downward passed through the right
lung nnd come out below tho right
arm. Cornelius was arrested and sent
to jail.

A False Rumor.
We have beeu informed, (whether re

Cant. B. H. Taylor has withdrawn his
name from the list of candidates for
Governor. His friends will naturally
go for Featherston the safest man to
bet your money on.fand the next Gov
ernor.— Holly Springs South.
This story is • ‘a weak invention of
the enemy.” Gapt. Taylor's friends
may rest assured that he has not with
drawn and will not withdraw, and we
hope bis supporters are too well inform

a rumor as the above.—Sard/s Star.

The New Senators.
New fork has got two senators of no
remarsable ability, and about whom it
would be absurd to indulge in any ex
pressions of Slate pride. But it has air
so got rid of two senators by whom it
was conspicuously misrepresented, and
in whom the sense of private proprie
torship of their office had wholly eflaoed
any sense of public responsibility.

At half past one, adjourned to 3 p. m.
On re-assembling several short ad
dresses were made on tho subject of
temperanoo, pending which Col W L
Nugent, for the Committee on Resolu
tions, submitted the following report:
We. the representatives of the peo
ple of Mississippi, from all sections of
the State, from all professions and pur
suits, and from all political parties and
races, profoundly convinced of the
evils and perils of intemperaueo and
the liquor traffic, and that our only re
lief is in legal and constitutional pro
hibition, and invoking the favor of
heaven upon our cause and efforts, do
iviobo llilc Mtir caIopiii artil Piirnfnl iIpp.
laration to onr fellow citizens in the
State.
It is the calm anil unanimous voice
of this Convention tint, as the liquor
traffic docs more to exhaust tho re
sources, retard the prosperity, debauch
the morals and degrade the manhood of
onr commonwealth than any or all oth
er evils combined, onr deliverance and
progress can only bo achieved by wise
prohibitory laws and their faithful nd
ministration.
To securo such legislation, which we
confidently believe will overthrow the
liquor traffic and arrest its colossal
evils, to the great happiness aud peace
of society, wo earnestly invoke the
counsel and aid of every good and pa
triotic citizen in the State.
We regard it an occasion of profound
congratulation that the people of ail
parties, religions and colors can meet on
one common platform to advance a
great public measure without any con
fliot of interests, without creating or
exciting nuy party faction, without
nwakcniug any religions prejudice, and
without begetting any race antagonism.
Wo also, here and now, assert with
plainness aud emphasis that this is in
no sense a partisan, movement. We
have nothing to ..,011 party politics.
We seek notin the least to disturb the
party affiliations of any citizen. We
Imveouly one aim; we are animated by
ouly one motive, the advancement of
the material aud moral prosperity of
our beloved commonwealth, the promo
tion of tho health, wealth, liberty and
happiness of onr people without any
any distinction whatever. We shall
place no candidates in the field, we
shall not grasp for the spoils of office,
wo deprecate and denounce the at
tempts of onr enemies to drag or.r
rigliieous cause into the contentions of
parties, thereby prejudicing aud injur
ing the movement.
We further declare that tho prohibi
tion movement is not inspired by any
motive or purpose to afflict, or antagon
ize liqnor men, but to oppose the l q
nor traffic within the limits of this
State, lio'ieving in the doctrine of a
universal brotherhood we war not
against men but against a business,
which, though now legalized is blight
ing ar.d withering in its effects upon
society. If other occupations would be
sought and this traffic have no longei
an army of ngeuts and employees in its
service, their individual usefulness anil
happiness would bo promoted, aud
multiplied thousands saved to the peo
ple of Mississippi.
Tho liquor power by secret and cor
rupt agencies is seeking to securo the
nomination and election of meu to the
legislature pledged against any prohi
bition reform, who will resist the pas
sage of stringent laws and refuse tc
allow the people to vote upon a prohi
bitory amendment to the Constitution.
We warn the people ngainst such an
issue. We ask not for candidates 01
pledges. We will only ask that the sa
crod right of petition shall not be vio
lated or denied, and to this end that
candidates for the legislature shall bold
IUCU13CI cuo illlwuiiumi'.’U mo vuviwivs
of prohibition.
PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS.
1. The right of self protection is in
herent to all governments, auil carries
with it a great auil poble duty. No
government can abandon tho right not
evade the duty. “If I have reason to
believe that an enemy is undeimining
its power, and plotting in any way its
destruction,” the obligation is impera
tive, eithei to destroy tho enemy or ef
factually bn fits his desigus. The prio
ciple here enunciated applies with
equal force to the right and duty of
government to protect society against
evils ns well as enemies. “Hence laws
against adulterated food, against the
communication of contagious diseasee
by the establishment of quarantine re
strictions, and forbidding tho sale of
common virulent poisons.’’ Whatever
therefore, entails upon sooiety disease
nod misery, poverty and wretchedness,
and is, iu its nature, destructive to in
dustry, wealth, morals and reason, of
ten making its victims dangerous, nl
| ways injurious to society, must be a
! proper subject of legislative suppres
sion. Tho obligation of the common
wealth to protect society against it can
not be otherwise than supreme.
2. All governments above barbarism,
take tho family constitution under their
protection. They recognize end act
upon the principle that the perpetuity
of governmeut and the progress of
Christian civilization depend very large
ly upon the purity and indissolubility
of the family constitution. Whatever,
therefore, is in its very nature destruc
tive of that constitution, the intolera
ble bane of thousands of happy homes,
and the fatal destroyer of thousands
more, tho State is bonnd to suppress
by wise legislation.
3. It is the clearly acknowledged du
ty of every wise government to exercisj
a watchful care over the sources of
wealth and woven y, seeking by wise
legislation to encourage and develop
the one, and to prevent and remove the
other. Whatever, therefore snaps na
tional prosperity and wealth, and en
tails povt-rtv and want, is a legitimate
subject of legislative enactment for its
suppression.
4. It is conceded by all that the duty
of the State to legislate for the preven
tion suppression of crime is imptritiVe.
Whatever, therefore, is tho cause of
three-fourths of the oriine of the coun
try, as attested by tho judges of Eng*
land and America for two hundred
years, must be a legitimate subject of
legislative prohibition.
Recognizing, therefore, tho fact,
that tho manufacture and sale of in
toxicating liquors as a beverage, is the
prolific source of the evils enumerated
—itself an evil of snob magnitude as to
jeopardize tho highest interests of tho
(Stato, filling it with drunkenness nnd
crime, entailing poverty nnd wretched
ness, mid becoming tho intolerable
nurse ol thousands of homes through
out tho land, and tho fatal destroyer of
thousands of more, this Convention
feels constrained to utter, with all pos
sible emphasis, the solemn conviction
that tho question of the “prohibition of
this traffic" is one the State cannot Ion
ger evade; it cannot discharge its high
and solemn duty as a government,
while it leaves society prey to the most
merciless destroyer ever known to man.
Therefore, in order to accomplish this
result, he it
Resolved, That the President of this
Convention appoint an Execvtivc Com
mittee of fifteen, two from each Con
gressional District aud threo from tha
State at large, five of whom shall con
stitute a quorum, aud whose duty it
shall be,
First,—To preparo and submit to the
Legislature at its next session, a rne
mornl setting forth tho evils of the li
quor traffic iu this State, aud, in the
narno of this Conveutiou, praying and
demanding that an amendment to the
Constitution prohibiting said traffic in
this Stato, shall bo passed aud submit
ted to tho people for ratification or re
jection at the next succeeding general
election.
Second—To facilitate and further
the organization of Prohibition Clubs
iu every county and town throughout
the State, aud disseminate accurate and
reliable information among the people
as to the evils of the liquor traffic.
Third—To render such service as
may bo deemed proper iu tho prepara
tiou of censtitutiouul amendment above
referred to, and such aa any committee
of tho Legislature charged with the
special duty may request.
Fourth—To cull any Conventions,
State aud county, which may hereafter
become necessary, either for the pur
pose of promoting the ratification of
such an amendment to tho Constitu
tion as the Legislature may adopt, or
for the more efficient organization of
the friends of prohibition throughout
tie State, should tho Legislature fail
or refuse to pass the umeudment desired
iu order to secure all ueedfitl repressive
legislation, aud protect the health,
lives and property of tho people
agaiuat-tlie evils of the whisky traffic.
Resolved, That any vacancy in said
Committee may bo filled by the Presi
dent of this Convention, or by any
three members of Iho Committee; aud
that the Committee constituted under
these resolutions shall hold office un
til superseded by soma future Prohi
bition Conveutiou.
T^mnlvinl Th,if Mia noAnl.i nf Mia bpv
eral counties aud towns iu this State be,
aud they are hereby urged at onoe to
organize Prohibition Clubs aud appoint
County Executive Committees, and pre
pare, . by suitable subscriptions » aud
contributions of money, for the circu
lation of petitions for prohibition, af
ter such form as the Executive Com
mitte ' msv adopt, and the presentation
thereof for signature to every man aud
woman iu the State, to the end that
there may te a full ui d fair expression
of public sentiment on this measure for
the information and guidance of the
Legisalture. Aud that the several
County Executive Committees when
organized shull correspond with and be
subject to the direction of the State
Executive Committee.
Resolved, That peudiug the snbrnis
sion of the said contemplated constitu
tional amendment, the Legislature be
requested to provide by law for the de
termination of the question of licens
ing liquor dealers, by a direct vote of
the people within the towns, counties
and Supeivisors districts in this State,
within which liquor is sought to be
sold, for auulliug the existing license
laws; and if the people agree to license
dealers, for limiting the quautity for
sale to not less than one gallou while
the price of license largely increased;
ami that the Executive Committee be
charged with the duty of briugiug this
matter to the early attention of the
Legislature.
Mr. P. \V. Coor introduced a resolu
tion requiring candidates for office to
declare whether they favored prohibi
tion. lie supported the resolution in
an earning eloquent speech.
Rev. C. R, Galloway hoped the Con
vention wou’.a uot adopt the resolution,
lie was a pronolnceji uncompromis
ing prohibitionist, favored a law
that would be like a lawful plantation
fence—horse high, huli Htr0Ug anil pig
tight. But the action iuRcatej by ibo
resolution would be aud
pr-jndioe the cause at this stuy^ Gf tbe
movement.
Mr. David Mitchell, of Holmes, uoej
the resolution would be adopted, kj
declared I10 would vote for no man fo.
the Legislature who is not friendly to
prohibition.
Mr. E. C. Gates, of Washington, Hr
gued against the propriety of adopting
the resolution. Wo should not try to
get to the main question iu too big a
hurry.
R-v. Mr. Gambrell approved much
that Mr. Galloway had said, but the
friends of the movement should not be
too conservative. For himself he in
tended to know whether candidates for
the Legislature shall be willing or not
to submit this question to the people.
Rev. Dr. Johnson offered the follow
ing as a substitute for tlio resolution
offered by Mr. Coor, which the latter
accepted:
Resolved, That we will support no
man for the Legislature who will uot
pledge himself to vote for au ordmance
submitting to the vote of the people an
amendment to the State Constitution
prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating
liquors, if a majority of the citizens of
hia Ann ill v npfihnn the Lecislatiird for
the adoption of such an ordinance.
Judge Watson hoped the Convention
would uot go further thau is indicated
by Dr. Johnsou’s resolution.
’ Mr McNeil, of Prentiss, favored the
substitute.
Dr. Bard well hoped tlie report and
resolutions, as submitted by the com
inittee, would be adopted. He was op
posed to the resolution offered by Mr.
Coor, and to the substitute offered by
Dr. Johnson. Ha made an eloquent
and earnest argument against any ao
tion that would savor of party politics.
A colored delegate moved to table Dr.
Johnson’s substitute, and the substi
tute was tabled by a decided majority.
The question recurring on the origin
al report, Mr. Montgomery, of Hinds,
favored earnest, immediate, agressive
action in favor of prohibition.
Mr. Muse, colored, of Noxubee, ft%
vored making haste slowly.
Mr. Tate, of Pike, opposed the report
of the committee. It did not go far
enough.
Col. Nugent closed the discussion iu
a lncid, comprehensive and eloquent
statement of the nddress and resolutions
reported by the committee, and on his
motion they were adopted almost nnau
imonsly.
Rev. Dr. Sullivan offered a resolu
tion complimentary to the Prohibition
ist, published at Colnmbus, and com
mending its extended circulation.
Rev. Mr. Freeman suggested that
the county press be utilized, as for as
possible, in disseminating the proceed
ings and papers adopted by the Con
vention.
On motion of Mr. Nugent it was
Resolved, That we invito the cordial
co-opera',ion of the women of our State
in the furtherance of the prohibition
movement now so happily inaugurated.
Judge B'atson vacated the chair to
endorse the resolution, and his remarks
elicited applause, and the resolution
was adopted by a rising vote.
Dr. R. A, Green, colored, of Vicks
bnrg, offered a resolution of sympathy
with President Garfield, which was
unanimously adopted.
On motion of Dr. Galloway, the Pres
ident was allowed to appoint the com
mittees provided for in report of com
mittee, after adjournment of Oonven
tion.
Rev. Mr. Hunnicnt read a letter from
I Sheriff Butler of Lawrence, testifying
to the improved condition of society
since the closing of saloons in that

in the last few years as a nervine, but scientific
experiments and experience have proved be

a marked degree.
But a combination of the Extract of Celery

formation to the public to avoid answering hun

My Celery and Chamomile Pills, for the core
of headaches and nervousness, are prepared
under my supervision, and are intended ex
pressly to cure headaches, neuralgia, 'ndtges
tiou. sleeplessness and nervousness, and will
cure any case where no organic disease of the
brain or spina! cord exlKts. Hundreds of cases
of many years’ standing have been cured. No
matter how chronic or obstinate the case may
be, a permanent cure is morally certain. This
statement is made after years of experience in
their use in the general practice of medicine.
These Pills are also valuable for school chil
dren who suffer from nervous headaches, caus
ed by an overworked brain in their studies, and
for all classes of hard brain-workers, whose
over taxed nervous centers rieid repair and se
dation. Nervous tremor, weakness and paraly
sis are being daily cured by these pilla. They
correct eosltiveness, but are not purgative.

nil JOHN BULL'S
SMITH S TONIC SYRUP
FOR THE CURE OF
FEVER and AGUE
CHILLS and FEVER.
Tbe proprietor ol Ibis celebrated
medicine justly claims fora superiori
oritv over all remedies ever offered to
tbe public for the Safe, Certain, Speedy
an Permanent cure of Ague and Fever,
or Chills ami Fever, whether of short
or long standing. He refers to tbe en
tire Western and Southern country to
bear his testimony to the troth of tbe
assertion that in no casr whatever will
it foil to euro if the directions nre
strictly followed and carried out. in a
great many cases a single dose has been
sufficient for a cure, and whole families
have been cured by u single bottle,
with restoration of the general health.
It is, however, prudent, and in every
case more certain to cure, if its use Is
continued in smaller doses for a week
or two after the disease has been cheek
ed, mote tSj ecially in ditUeultand long,
standing eases. Usually this medicine
will not require any aid to keep the
bowels in good order. Should the pa
tieut, require a cathartic medicine
niter having ti ree ot Tour doses ot tbe
Tonic a single dose of Bull’s Vegetable
Family Pills will be sufficient.
The genuine Smith’s Tonic Syrup must
have John Bull’s private stamp on each bot
tle. Dr. John Bull only has the right to
manufacture and sell the original John J.
Smith’s Tonic Svrnp, of Louisville, Ky. Ex
amine well the label on each bottle. If the
private stamp is not on each bottle, do not
purchase or you will be deceived.
