Th$ Meeting the Speaking
McNutt, Foote, &c, -In pursu
unce to appointment Gov; Mc
Nutt made his 'appearance in this
county, on the 16th. He met the
people first at the. Multona Springs
and, we are told (not being able to
attend the speaking at the Springs
ourselves) addressed them ably and
efficiently, making' him many
friends, and convincing every body

lie spoke ot the other certihers, but
in a manner respectful, and only
insisted that they -were mistaken.
His exposition of Constitution, we
are told by many who heard him,
was more able than any they
. have evar had the pleasure of hear
. ing. His arguments were all able,
close and logical. In short it is said
that his speech at the Springs was
the mos powerful and convinc
ing political harangue everjistened
to, except the one delivered at this
place, on the day following. He
had large crowds at both places.
Gen. Foote followed on each oc
casion, was quite .caustic in his re
marks in regard to McNutt but his
arguments amounted to nothing.
Foote has undeniable talents, and
possesses all the high attributes of
the gentleman which he acts out
about os well as any one, we have
seen. We like Foote, but still wo
think he is in bad and unprofitable
business in following McNutt a
bout and attempting to reply to
his speeches. They are personally
unfriendly, but Gen. I oote cer
tainly cannot be a malicious man.
It has been eight years, we learn,
since him and McJNutt had thei
difference. There must be some
other cause, he must wish'to ppeak
some one else into the Senate.
The General had better quit. Mc
Nutt will go. . j

His Excellency, A. G. Brown,
' Governor of the State of 3Iissis
Sir: General Taylor, , to whom
has been committed the command
of the army of occupation in Texas
is authorized to draw any auxilia
ry force he may need from Texas,
lf'such aid should be wanted, it is
not doubted that the patriotic . cit
izens of that State will rally to his
assistance with alacrity, in suffi
cient numbers to enable him, in
conjunction with United States
troops, to repel the invasion of
Texas by Mexico, should it be at
tempted. Though our information
as to the force Mexico may bring
into the field for such a purpose, is
not very accurate, yet there is rea
son to apprehend that it is more
numerous than that under the com
mand of General Taylor, and may,
perhaps, exceed his effective force,
when augmented with the auxilia
ry aid he may derive from Texas.
Besides, he may. need additional
troops to a greater number, and
sooner than they can be furnished
him from that State. Should he
need assistance from vour State,
he is directed to signify to you the
number and description of troops
he may deem necessary to receive
as volunteess into service. Rely
ing upon the public spirit of the
gallant militia of Mississippi, the
government here do not doubt that
he will be promptly furnished with
such, and so many as he may ex
press a uesire te nave mustereu into
the service of the United States;
and it has the most perfect reliance
upon your countenance and co-op
eration 'in organizing and sending
into Texas such a volunteer force
from your State as he may desire.
It is necessarily left to his judg
ment to designate the number.
It is proper to observe that the
emergency, rendering such assist
ance from the militia of your State
necessary, does not appear to
have been foreseen by Congress,
and consequently no approbation
was made tor paying them: but it
is not to be doubted that such a
provision will be promptly made,
when Congress shall again assem
ble. In order to be paid, the State
troops must be mustered into ser
vice. In organizing companies
and regiments for that purpose,
the number of officers must be
Eroportioned to that of the privates.
Inclosed I send you from the Ad
jutant General, a statement of the
number and rank of officers for
each company of men, as well as
the regimental and stall officers,
should a regiment of volunteers be
be called for. From the known
patriotism and military ardor of the
militia of your State, it is presumed
that volunteers to the number that
may be required, will readily ten
der their services to their country
in the contemplated emergency.
Should aid from your State be re
quired by the commanding gener
al in Texas, it will be of the utmost
importance that the troops should
be sent into that State without de
lay. This consideration will ren
der it proper that they should
come from such part ot the State
as can most promptly furnish them:

Western Mountains and Riv

The National Intelligencer contains
a very interesting sketch of Capt.
Fremont and company's trip to
Oregon, being his third expedition
on account of Government, and
the Intelligence he gives of that
country is highly important and
valuable. The Kooky Mountains
are shown to be not the formida
ble barriers supposed. Capt. F.
crossed them at "four different
places- instead of being desolate
and impassable, are shown to have
many excellent passes, (of which
the South Pass is the finest,) and
to embosom beautiful valleys,
caves and Parks, with lakes and
mineral springs, rivalling and sur
passing the most enchanting parts
of the Alpine regions in Switzer
land 'lhe Great Salt lake, one
ot the wonders of nature, and per
haps without a rival in the woild,
(being a saturated solution of salt,
of a hundred miles diameter,) is for
the first time revealed to our view,
by one who has surveyed its shores
and navigated its waters. The
Bear river valley, with its rich
bottoms, fine grass, walled up
springs, soda fountains, voh anic
rock, v.olcanic crater, and saline ef
foiescences, and four thousand
five hundred feet above the sea.
is for the first tim described. The
same of the Sierra Nevada-of
the rivers of Sacramento and Sari
Joaquin, which constitute the wa
ters of the bav.ot San Francisco

and its Arab inhapitants, . which
lies south of the latitude of that
bay, and extends many degrees
east towards the Rocky Moun
tains. None of these objects have
heretofore been described by any
The Berreventunv river, which
has a place on so manynmaps, and
whose course is traced from the
Rocky Mountains to lhe Pacif
ic, is declared to have no uxistence
but in the imagination of writers
and map-makers. Of the geograph
ical discoveries and descriptions,
the most striking is that Of the
Great Basin, or vast interior plain
which lies between the Sierra Ne
vada and the Rocky Mountains
east and" west, and between the
Blue Mountains and the Washatch
on the - South, and embracing
an area of five or six bundled
miles diameter. The elevation of
SierraNevada being more lofty
than the Rocky Mountains, ac
counst for the formation of this
Great Basin, as Captain Fremont
calls it, and of which he w the first
to.announse its existence, to the
world. ; A -basin which may hold
such a kingdom -as France, and
which has for its rim a circle ot
mountains 'whose summits pene
trate the regions of eternal snow,
is certainly a new and grand object
to be revealed.
