If Lym h i* elected to Congrc** to
represent u» (<*r the next four yearn,
the UmuMTaU in certain portion# of
tho Sixth District should lie ashamed
of the inactive purl they took in the
late ranrimi. Other IlmlritU in
the State, where the Hepuhlimn ma
jorities have been overwhelming,
have, at the last election, acnt their
ablest men to represent them in the
halls of the National I*eg"datnre.—
And here the Sixth IhMrict will have
to he represented l»v a load smelling,
kinkey headed, ignorant negro. It
is gulling in the extreme, after sin h
an overwhelming defeat of Kudiesl
isin in the State, that the Sixth Dis
trict should conn* waging in with
this hybrid specimen of humanity to
represent her in Congress.

Jury adjourned on the 11th, having
(ailed to find any indictment against
Lieutenant Governor Davis. They
reported In substance t Thai they
had made diligent inquiries into the
changes brought against the Lieuten
ant Governor, and that the evidence
mas not sufficient to warrant a pre
sentment.
Inasmuch as the Court, a day or
two previous, charged the Jury that
they should require only evidence
sufficient to make nut a prtaui (>m.i
ease, their action will be tenanted as
a complete vindication of Lieutenant
Governor Davie from the alleged
cl targe of bribery.
The public generally, as well as
the friends of Mr. Davis, will be re
joiced to learn that be has thus been
Iklly a<quitted.—[Jackson Times.
