Beginning with the first issue of The Leuikk, we have beeu sending the paper regularly to a nuinher of persons in Lin coln, Lawrence, Copiah, Franklin and I’ike counties, who have never request ed it. All such persons have seen by this time what the palter is and is likely to be. \Ve now request that all those who do not in tend to become regular snbscrilsTs, will at once drop us a card or otherwise notify ns of the fact, nuu the paper will be promptly discontinued, though we hope to retain them all. The Lkadeh has established itself here to become a permanent institution of the county, identified with all its intorets; and while, we can afford to indulge a few sub scribers through t-lie dull summer months while money .is scarce, it shall not be the rule of this office to send out papers on a credit. No publisher can long do business upon such a basis and prosper. We have received many encouraging words since wo began, and we believe we are pleasing most of our readers. We do not expect to please all of them, nor any of them all the time; but we wish every body who will do so to subscribe, and we will do our best to return value receiv ed. However, give us notice, as wo have requested, if you <lo not want the paper. BROOKHAVEN ITEMS. April shoifers. Head everything on this page. C.

A Great many arc using it under their Jsweet potatoes. We are very glad to learn flint Mr. Tlios. Cuming, Sr., is recovering from tlio severe attack of illness announced in our last issue. The distance from llrookhaven to Wes son by freight train is just seventy-five mid three-quarter miles. We measured it last. Friday. Mr. Henry Monnger, of Batesville,is now on duty at l>r. Meek’s store, where he is ready to render cheerful and prompt atten tion to all customers. Dr. Talmage failed to meet liis appoint ment at this place last Bumlay. Perhaps its being the 1st of April had something to do with his non-appearance. Knights and Ladies of Honor received eight new members of late. The meetings are quite interesting; next Friday night they expect to receive still more. The Board of Bui>errisors held their regular meeting last Monday and adjourn ed over till August. We will publish a full synopsis of proceedings in our next. Uov. Felix R. Hiller, of New Orleans, is expected to preach tlio Commencement Beriuon at Whitworth in Juno next, and Lieut-Gov. G. D.

Circuit Court couvencd at Mewlville last Monday, Judge Cliristuan on the I tench, and District-Attorney, as usual, (Miking after tin interests of the State Very little loudness was done the first day, except to organiw*. The Grand and Petit jurors were made up of good repre sentative men of the county, and will no doubt do good work. Jndge Chrisman'* barge to the Grand Jury was excellent. Mis charge and remarks relative to last week's lynching were eminently appropri it(* and should be heeded hy every one wl»o heard them. Tho Judge is not the ■nan to cringe and pass lightly by such matters, hut has the courage to boldly tell tlio people what their true interests de mand. Mr. K. C. Adams, the clever and accom modating Circuit Clerk, informed usdliat there were rtlMint sixty eases altogether on docket at the opening of the Court; about half of these were minor criminal eases, the others civil. A most interesting occasion Monday afternoon was the presentation to the countv, hy tlio people, of a magnificent mid lifo-like jsirtrait of Jndge Hirain Cnssedy. It was delivered on the part of the people by Col. T. R. Stm-kdnle in an eloquent and iM'antiful address on the life and abilities of FratikliiT* great and gifted sou, and appropriately received on ti e part of the county by Judge T. A. Magee. It was BusjH'iided in the Court room above the Judge's desk where it will re main as a perpetual token of the honor and high esteem in which Jndge Cossedy was held hy his people, and a continual reminder to them of his loved and cherish ed memory. We enjoyed the pleasure ol meeting many of the solid men of the county aud greatly regretted that business engagements at home made it necessary to burry off Tuesday morning without meet ing many others whom we desired to know. The demand upon our space prevents our giving a more extended notice of Franklin affairs in this issue. Next week we hope to lay 1 hi fore our readers in that county, a full report of the business dis posed of by the Court. The road from here to Mcadville is a long and rough one, but the trip was greatly shortened both ways by our being permitted to stop and share the old fash ioned fioutheru hospitality of Judge Tims. A. Magoe anil his excellent wifs who re. side at McCall’s Creek. PERSONAL. W. K. Spencer, Esq., is off on a trip to New Orleans. Joe Abrams has gone to fit. Louis to live. Success to him. • t Mr. Hodges of southwest Lincoln, one of our host farmers, was In town Tuesday. Dr. J. W. lleuuett is atton ling the m‘«t iug of the State Board of Health at Jack son this week. Gen. Henry O'Hara, of the Mighty West’ Inis lieeit breaking the monotony With his genial preseneo. Mrs. Fannie Tynes, of Terry, who lias been visiting her father Mr. Thos. Cuming, returned last Tuesday. Mr. Clms. Williams, son of the Franklin comity .Sheriff, spent several days in town last week on his return from Oxford, where lie lias been attending sc hook Judge Chrisiuan, District-Attorney Ons sedy, Col. Denson, Maj. Sessions, Hons. C. Chrisiuan and A. C. McNair are iilmcnt this week attending court In Franklin. Sheriff Williams, of Franklin, was in town lust Thursday and paid us a pleasant call, accompanied l>y our stannch and re liable Democratic friond, Col. C. Byrd. Mrs. E. G. Peyton, of Haxlehurst, the talented “ Mississippi Woman ” whose powerful pen opened the doors of Oxford for her sex and well-nigh won for them a separate State University, was a visitor to this city last Saturday. Whitworth is her Alma Muter, and she never gradu ated a daughter who has reflected upon kcr so much honor. The Fire Itennrtmrnt. The Horn Company is well organized and the boys anticipate having a nice uniform soon. The “Vigilant*” anticipate liu.ing an entertainment soon and decide upon a name for their engine. Pioneer Hook and Ladder company is well organized, thus making onr Fire De partment effective again. Property own ers should encourage the Fire boys to keep np an interest in the Fire Department, thus keeping the rate of insurance low. Vigilant Engine company held a meeting last Monday; adopted Constitution and liy Laws; good attendance and quite on in terest manifested; also had the engine out to test it. She throws water equal to a steamer. • HR DAY. For Th* Liams.) Oh! day of warm, sweet winds that gen tly blow From cherry trees a shower of fragrant snow; Oh! day of fresh faint scents of opening Hewers, Of glad, bright suuabine through the gold en hours; Of glorious splonder over laud and sea, Of whispering zephyrs over hill and lea, Of emting doves among the far-off trees, Whose note* come faintly tender on the breeze. Oh! day of purple violet* through the HJOH. That slyly upeu and their fragrance toss, To soothe the Idle soums into rest, Toslinuh’rouscare.lesauess, to rapture blest. Oh! day of sweet forgetfulness of core, Of deep content and restfuliu'se so rare, Of tender thoughts that idly come and As listless as the gentle winds that Mow;— Of new, unfolding hopes and glowing dreams, Ah softly radiaut as the light that gleams. Oh! day of happy memories that creep, luto the senses, and in gladness steep The dreamiug heart in happiness divine— As tills glad day with all its warm sunshine. Oh! day of lovo and beauty fresh and fair. That breathe* of other day# mure sweetly rare Tlmt yet shall come; and holds the prom ise sweet - Of rapture yet more gnJut and glare con plat*. \ Lt't,AH KAtislMLK. Frank A. Isaac After a protracted ill new*, this life-long friend died at his home In Jaokaon on last FridiCy, March 30tli. That he is dead, and with him dead the ho|iee which, despite there was so little ground for hope, we so roueh loved to cherish,—is something we realize with keenest sorrow. Jackson never gave birth to a son wore richly endowed with natural gift*—more talented and aiutii tions—more versatile und )s dished—and withal more genial and sincere. The pos aihilitiea of liis future were only limited by the iifsidious destroyer—ron*n [option— which years ago licgan to prey upon his vitals, and the untimely death which now holds him forever in its iev embrace. lie made a long, brave tight, but both will and frame had finally to succumb to the steady inarch of disease. That poor Frank (kwomixI frailties— and who does not f—an one was more keenly conscious than himself. More than once he has coufessed them to the writer, while the tears which rolled down his wasting checks, attested more eloquently than words, how deeply they mortified and grieved him. May your rest lie as peaceful, dear friend, as we fain would have had your life long-spared and your days useful. To his sorrowing relatives, and esjiccial ly to his widowed mother, we otter our heart-felt sympathy in Mils hour of irre parable loss. ANNOUNCING CANDIDATES.

PRICE, 82 A YEAR, IN ADVANCE. The LEADER will give a general summary of the news of the day, but will pay special attention to laying before its readers all matters of local iuterets. It will be Democratic, but not to an extreme and offen sive degree, and will never contain anything that can not be read with propriety around the fireside. Everyone desiring to sup port such a paper, is re spectfully solicited to sub scribe. We will make it worth its price to any one who takes it. To Advertisers. The LEADER starts out with most of the Ledger’s list of Subscribers, as well as a large list of its own, and at once presents a good ad vertising medium through which business men can reach the public. Our rates are reasonable and we can make it to the interest of all who favor us with their patronage. B. T. HOBBS, Editor and Proprietor* % PHILIP WERLEIF'. 135 ('ajial St , New Oki.eax.
