The legislature that lias Just con veued at Jackson is as usual with the assembling of that important body, ihe attraction of the season and all eves an* turned to its pin ceedings, w hieli wifi Im» watched w itli great interest. Like nil similar lushes, it is com|H<scd of almost i very shade of intellect, and charac ter. Among i*s members may Is* found the sols-r, thoughtful, pub j lie-spirited citizen and the cross road |Militteian, whose only thought is to east his vote, that he may get luck at ti e next session, regard less ot the principle involved in the ipiestiou at issue. Then then' is the man of ambition, w ho wants to cast Ins “sails to w iudword" Imping that it uiuy collect a breeze that will raise him higher. Again, there is the man whose greatest fear t* that he shall return homo and be accused of “doing nothing,” and to prevent this, is very anxious lo in troduce u“biir regardless of its merits or necessity. Next conic* the hobby ist, who only thinks of one thing uud bore* every man he meets with bis j*ct theory, and who cares nothing for any thing api*crtuiliiug to the public good.

It is by no means certain, that the West thing the body could would not Ih> to pass the necessary appro priation bills and adjourn, but theie are some important questions that will be submit ted for their consider ation, which wo shall notice troiu time to time as they come to bo cou* [ sidcrcd. Uu*lsr««ror the Legislature. Under thu» heading tho Columbus j Index maps out a go*nl deal of bus iness for the legislature. It wants ' several of tho existing laws repeal ed and tho enactment of others | which it thinks of vital importance. It asks tor tho repeal of tho law cs. i (ablisliing a railroad commission; j repeal of tho law authorizing the | lease of penitentiary convicts; the 1 repeal or modification ot tho lion law, amt tho repeal of the privilege tax law. It also wants an amendment of ■ existing laws in reference to par* I ties found guilty of jK-tit larceny in a way to enable tho counties to 1 utilize the lal>or on public roads alter conviction by magistrates. This would bo one of tho wisest, and certainly of great financial ben- j 1 «llt to tho counties, measures that * will or could coiue before tho legis-1 lutuie. We have had occasion to refer to this more thau once aud if its practical effect? eon id bo seen by our legislators we have no doubt a bill of that nature would U* pass ed without a desentieg voice. Many of the grand larceny cases could be designated as petit larceny aud persons convicted of the latter should be turned over to tho couu ty contractor, ho laying into the treasury the amount of tho flue, thus, in a measure, re imbursiug the county. We arc with the Index in this matter and hope to see such a law j putted by the present legislature It may not be generally known that there is a very simple and iu* expensive remedy forepta in coin maud of almost every one.

We bavo entered upou n now year, and the thought la fraught with n double a«i>ect. We congrat ulate ourselves nnd our readers tip au t be success of the pust year, our present surroundings and our lio]K‘ lor the future, and yet, we know not a hat a year may luing forth.— The year that we have just passed through was marked, in at least one particular—the death of so many of our older citiaens. One by one they have passed away until there are hut few'remaining land marks that bind us to the past his tory of this county. The solemn re tlection, what will wo witness this year, must strike the mind of every thoughtful man. To some it will bring joy and honor, to others sor tow and, perhaps, dishonor. To some, it is ushered in with great hope, that is dextiued to bo blight* ed lieforo its clone. To others its coming is forecast l»y a heavy cloud, that will, ere long, give wav to the silver lining and the sunshine that is to l«»llow . To some it eoiues,am! will go, without n thought oi its presence, or tho surroundings at tcuduut upon it. To all, its coming should ho a tunc lor rctlcction and retrospection; a time to think of our past weaknesses and of (lie amends to lie made in the future. It should tie a time to mature good purjHises, and tho year should l*e spent in living up to them, lad us all enter upon the duties of tho iu*w year w it ti renew ed energy to prosecute our respective callings, in the most enterprising maimer. lad each foi himself detei mine to Ik* a boo in the great hive id' humanity, and contribute bis portion, to tho sue. cess of the community, lad ns so live and act that, should we live to see another New Year, wo shall have no cause to regret the lo>t op port unities ot tho year that we have passed, and, if uot, that our eon duet and example may be cherished by those who w ill love our memory, and that we may enter upon a Hap py New Year in eternity. A JTcw Field for Hoot* to Figure In. It is proposed by Homo of tlu* smart ones ot the United States of America to get up a laboratory at ter the order of M. Pasteur lor in occulation to prevent hydrophobia Now, hi M. Pasteur's process the hydrophobia’ poison has to l»e at tenuated by pussing through the system of th e thousand rabbits bo loro it is bottled up, (none genuine without the trade mark, and to prevent imposition upon our illit eiato public the name and rabbit is blown in the liottle.) The field ol the Sir William G. has hereto fore been confined to honorary membership on our local boards of health, lie is usually made chair man of the scavenger committee, aud is especially deputized to look after brown pa]>er, dog fcniiall, oys ter cans and scrap iron about our streets, and such other delicacies as his digestive organs may call for. He is sometimes offered us a witness in ukuutai. testimony and is occasionally elevated to the bar, though bis copartner in this valo of tears, viz: the male mule, plays iu this role with more digui. ty aud lung capacity. Now, onr idea would ls> to change the sphere of usefulness ot this odor iferous creature and put him upon trial for bis life with this hydro phobia bocilluH. At the same time in which wo aro attenuating the vi rus of hydrophobia it might do something for the odor of the goat, which ia no uiueh needed. In this unequal match between the goat and hydrophobia it is our opinion that the latter would stand no show, still if it takes fivo thousand goats to try the exjicrinieiit we arc iu for it heart and hand.

Mr. Speaker tho (Hauling paragraph to distribute tin* appropriation bills is tho Aaron’s Rod of ail this euntrovorny. 1 shall support the majority ivport just as it is, ami trust that it slrieuds will j keep their lines unbroken and adopt it us it camu from the com miiiee. I submit, sir, that there has been an infinite umount of irrelevant discussion introduced into the consideration ol tho quo*, tion. Partisan politics, personali ties, criminations ami rccriruinu tons, all tending to intlimc the passions nml lo prevent judicial impartiality. It might well be ask ed, “What business have they here at such an hour as this?’’ Now, sir, the considerations that properly enter into the discussion ol this question are these: Will the distribution of the Committee on Appropriations tend to salutary, intelligent, ami economical legisla tion? Will it seeuto to this House its right to supremacy over legisla tion w hich it is called upon to en act? Why sir, to state tho propo sittou is to answer them. A com mittee upiHiintod by tho Speaker* with reterenco to tho aptitudo and fitness of its memtiers is presumed to bo more competent to deal with the business of the department to which it pertains, than any other committee. Tho physician which makes a diagnosis of a disease is more capuble of prescribing for it than any amount of skill outside. Take the Committee on Naval Af fairs, for example. As I have said, it is api>oiuto«l by the S]icakcr with direct reference to tho aptitude of Its members for that brunch of ser vice And will you tell mo they are less competent to deal w ith the affairs of the Navy and to prencrilto tho amount that is needed to main tain it than any other committee, however able?

To devolve upon the Committeo on Appropriations the ditty of retorting every appro priation hill is to im|K>se upon it u task which it Is not capable of per forming satisfactorily. The result will be, as it has been heretofore, that bills will be reported at the close of tho session, ami members will be compelled touhoose between the alternative of adopting items which they do not approve or ol rejecting the whole, and thus forc ing an extra session with all its at tendant burdens upon the Treasury, It lias been well said that tho Mouse of Itepresentalivcs is the great master body of tho Ifpislativo department of the Government. Its representatives come directly from the people. There tiro no middle men between them and the real sovereigns ol the laud. The nlause of the Constitution which devolves upon it the sole power ot originating revenue bills, attest the high mission to which it isapiMiiiit Oil liy the venerated framers of that instrument. It is the business of tlio Ways and Means Committeo to provide the necessary revenue. It! is the business ot the Mouse to dis- j bum it wisely and economically I for the maintenance of the Govern- i incut. To vest this |iower in a single committee violates the true theory of the government* ami places upon the shoulders of this Mouse au Old Man ot the Sea to fetter its energies and obstruct it in | the performance of its functions. I trust it will assert its rightful po [ rogatlve, and throw of the incubus. ■■■■ The Public Printing. Tho committee ot the last legis lature, appointed to investigate Col.

Worthy Master uud Members of tho Statu Orange: Through tlio kinduess of your Sec retary 1 am permitted ro address this communication to your honorable body. 1 desire briefly to tlutnk Hie Patron* of Mississippi for their continued nd vornry of educnli. and especially for their co-operation in Hir work of securing a State College for white girls ill Mississippi. It luid oreured to me In the year of la'fi that Hie Slate should make pro vision hey ond the common school* fur the education of her while daughters. In 1H7‘J] hoped to utilize that idcaund at Hie Millie time build up and equip my loved and honored Alma-Jtodcr Wliitliworth College. With some as sistance from my brother S. it. Cole man Km|,, of Leflore county, I drew I up a |H-titioii to the Legislature of Mississippi, asking Hie Slate to adopt Whitworth College as a State institu tion, and foster it hv an nnminl ap propriation such a* was given to the Tugaloo l'niver*ity and Hie Normal School at Holly Springs, whereeolor ed girls are educated. This petition was read publicly at thi* anniversary of the Alumnae Asso ciation of Whitworth College, in .lime 1879. and several gentlemen who were called upon, made short ad dresses endorsing the suggestion. The |tel it ion was also read to our dis tinguished statesman lion. L. Q. ('. | Lamar win*heartily approved it* oh jject. I \\ Int will'tli ( ollege being a dcnomi tioual school coiihl not he adopted hy the State. I therefore prepared nil address which was read to the Metho dist Conference at Meridian in Dee, 11S7D, requesting that body to convey the Whitworth College property to the Stale in case the State would endow the institution us n State College for J white female*. Kvcn if the Confer ence had been willing to make this do nation of the property to the Slate, their were legal harriers which ren dered Htii'li an alienation impossible. Itelievlng there was abundant room in Mississippi for the employment of Church, State, and individual enter prise ami capital, In the matter of fe male education, I prepared a hill for a State College for white female*, which Senator Iteynold* of Monroe count*, kindly introduced in the Senate of 1XW). The State (irunge at it* meeting in Durant, in December, 1**1. declared in favor of a Stale College fur white girls. This wns very encouraging, and 1 addressed a letter to your worthy Master Captain Darden, ask ing him if the (irange at a subsequent meeting would *c-alflriii its utterance in regard to a Slate Female College, lie kimllv u«*ured me that the tirauge would not relax it* efforts until a Statu i institution for white girls was an as sured fact. l’atrons of Mississippi! I rejoice with you to-day, that a State College for our daughters lias been establish 0.1. I feel, more than! ran express, the I deep obligation the |»cople of Missis sippi owe to her intelligent and patri otic farmer-, for two such valuable i and magnificent institutions as the Ag I rieiiltural College, and the Indu-trial College. Now. that these institutions are established, you will not caaso to foster them, and will doubtless give to them your unanimous support. The trustees have placed at the head of the Industrial College a man emi nently qualified for the respon-ihle and delicate duties incident to the inaugu ration of till* great enterprise. The niHnagemeiit of the school cun safely Ih* entrusted to «o worthy and emi nent a Christian gentleman and edu cator ns Dr. It. W. Jones, And now, if I might detain you n moment longer, I would ask your attention to another important educational pro blem: Our common schools. llow can we increase their efficiency? Without discussing this question, it would seem tlmt our greatest need at tills time is more money. The lllair Education Hill which will come Indore the next Congress, proposes to dis tribute #77.000,(sK>,(KH» among the Ntntc* on the basis of illiteracy. On this hn»U tlie share of Mi»sis»ippi would bo #1,500,000. This amount distributed among our common schools for a time would double the length of tlie public school term and give a mighty impetus to all our educational inanition*. I would therefore ask your honorublo body to give that measure your favorable consideration. On the subject of National uid to Edu cation: Dr. Mayo of Huston says: “1 ask tlie natlou to help the south ern people because no people, under similar disadvantages, has done so big a job of helping itself. I ask it because it is constitutional and in the direct lino of public policy from tho foundation of tho Confederation that preceded the Union. Ever)- Ameri can State ha* received and used na tional money, the north*western, and ■outh-western States, millions on millions in land grants for education. Every State has indorsed the policy of national aid to education over and over, by receiving and using such ap propriations. The common school fund of Kentucky wiu founded on the surplus revenue distributed in 1836 by tlie UeHoral Government ns was the school fund, in part, of several of the States. • • • Of course such aid should bo given for a time to stimulate and not to take tlie place of homo ef fort, and should be distributed by each State according to wiso . legisla tion in Congress. I believe the peo ple will demand national aid for edu cation a* soon us they know what it means. *' In ronclusiou allow me to congratu late tho Order of Patrons of Husban dry upon a fact which is n source of pride aud pleasure to all Misslssippi ans—the election of Captalu Put Dar den to the place of Worthy Master of the National Otraugts and also the [ ro motion iff hi* worthy wife to be Cere* of that widely extended and influen tial organization.
