We are now on the eve of a most important election; one in which it is desirable to have a full, fair and free ex prcssion of public sentiment. Hence a general review of the field over which we have passed may not be wholly un profitable. The canvass in this State commenced in May last, and has been conducted with much warmth on both sides. It was begun on the part of our opponents, by the introduction of various weighty charges against the Administration with personal and wholesale abuse of Mr. Van Buren and slanders of the deepest dye uttered acainst him w should always be first in the affections ot iUississippians. An examination in to the sentiments and public addresses of the whig candidates for Congress, their perfect uniformity, and leading fea tures, as therein developed, taken in connexion with other circumstances, "which have come to our .knowledge, have forced us to the conclusion, that the Mississippi delegation were well drilled during the last session of Con gress, and their respective posts in the present canvass assigned to the sever al prominent leaders of the whig party, and especially to the whig candidates for Congressional honors, by the great high priest of modern whigery, more properly known as ultra federalism. Sergeant S. Prentiss has for two or three years been distinguished for his "covert operations," and we believe we do no injustice to the whig party in this State, in expressing our honest convic tion, that the destiny of that party has been fully committed to his keeping, who has been furnished with the writ ten speeches of John Bell, Henry Wyse, and other whig worthies, which he has memorized and re-preached to the awa kened sons of this great State, for the express purpose of blinding and decei ving them, and the promotion of his own selfish motives and sordid popu larity. 1 r These charges have been met by the Democratic candidates their falsity has been clearly demonstrated and the people are now well advised of the con spiracy thus made against public liberty and sound democratic principles. Like all other species of dishonesty and de pravity, there is. with us. no Hnnht hut that this will redound on the heads of tne guilty originators, and that the con spirators will reap a bitter harvest on Monday and Tuesday, the 4 th and 5th days of November next. Throughout the whole State the wire w'orkers of the whig party, in discharge of the duties assigned them, commenced the canvass among the people with a formidable list of charges, in which "de falcations," "extravagance," "increased expenditures," and the like, stood forth in bold relief; but like the last puffs of the departing storm, they have died a- way ana ieit no trace behind, only that of their own condemnation. These cnarges have been met and exposed by facts, stubborn facts, until they them selves have become sick of them, even unto death. There is at this time quite an unusual calm in the whig camp, and a careiess observer would suppose that the opposition had given up the contest in tins part ot the State. We who know them are not, however, to be thus put off our guard. We shall submit to no such surrender. Ucaten at private defamation as they are in public denunciation, we may look out, just be iore me election, so laie mai mey can not bo refuted.) for slanderous attacks personally directed towards the Demo cratic candidates, even iron, tho very highest to the lowest office to be hue at the approaching election. From the specimens that we have already had, we know that nothing is to be hoped from the fairness and candor ot a party which strenuously contends that all is fair in politics. The course which thev have hitherto pursued seems to indicate a plan, deliberately Jormed, to spread ter- ror and consternation among the people, io sooner are they driven lrom one position, and compelled to retract false charges and statements previously made, even by a reorganization ot their lor- ces than, with amazing rapidity and astonishing adroitness, they assume some new position, and utter some equally false and unheard of charge by an at tempt to prove by one another, them selves clear regardless of the injury they may inflict on the innocent, or of the means by which they secure a In umph. Let us not, however, be misunder stood on one subject. We do not mean to exclude minor offices in our remarks, but have included all, even from that of the Executive of the State down to that of town constable. None except ed no, not one. Our reference is to the body of the party, and especially to the Colonels, the Majors, the Captains, and Drill Sergeants of the corps such village nobility as hope for office under the administration of Mr. Clay and such bankrupt dealers as hope by bank facilities to flourish another day "the brainless lords of lace and calico." In conclusion, we repeat our warning to the yeomanry of Attala the work ing men the bone and sinew of our land look out for lies on the eve of the election. It will do you no hurt to look to this matter. Should we be disap pointed in this instance, as to their ap pearanee, it will be almost the first time since we have been in the State: and! you will have the consolation of know ing that vou have followvd the holv THE UNION 01-' THE DEMOCRATS FOR THE SAKE OF THE UNION. Democrats of Attala County! Attend!! Once more let us remind vou, that the day of battle is near at hand that it approaches as if, at each instant, with quickened speed. But we feel that it cannot be necessary to awaken you to concert, union, readiness and energy for every patriot and friend to his country is aware of the necessity of all these, and we believe you to be what you pro fess to be, emphatically Democrats. Already have you, in common with your Democratic brethren throughout the Union, numerical superiority in your county the superiority which confers on Attala county a lustre of patriotism, intelligence, and fearless independence, not to be sullied or dimmed, even by the aspersion thrown on it by the great Whig Colonels, Majors and Captains of the opposers of all Republican forms of Government even by their affection ately calling her a "CHOCTAW coun ty. Already do we see the vernal "day-blush" of the Democratic cause bursting on high; and already do we seem to hear the spirit of your adversa ries, instead of yours, moaning in sym-1 pathy with the chill November wind, that, in its wild course, sighs in mourn ful cadence on all around. But, Democrats! you must remember, that unless each and every man rushes with energy and boldness to the excr- Lcise of his noble right of suffrage and unless each and every Democratic voter sustains the Democratic candidates of Attala, and the State, all our anticipa tions may prove to have been but "fan NOVEMBER HACKS!! peisonago than IIENuTciTv he Whig candidate for the lVVJ Pioneers of Attala counw ! ifPSl you to expect from this , L hat party that supports him? man and th UHNB AND AhV 7'V"ucl ""CCS.

THE STUGGLE.'! The public eye now looks with nain- ful Interest to the result of the annroach- mg election in our state. iot a mail comes that is not burthened with calcu lations of the result in the noble and chivalrous State in which we live. Why is this deep and absorbing feeling so strongly manifested? It is because the great political parties are nearlv balanced in the lower house of Congress, and upon the State of Mississippi pro- j uepenus me decision, "whether this shall be a Government of the banks or a Government of the people whether we shall be under the safe-guards of a ii ee oonsuiution," or remain for years the "hewers of wood, and drawers of water," to these soulless corporations. Freemen of Attala! Democrats and working men the tents of the enemy are pitched, and the hum that precedes the battle's roar, is floating upon the breeze. ARE YOU PREPARED? Are you ready to contend for the prin ciples that revolutionized the country from British dominion, that nlaee-l Jfif. ferson, Jackson and Van Buren in the Presidential chair, victorious over the Federalists, and that now seeks to place you, redeemed from the thraldom of banks, in the proud and enviable nosi- tion of independence?

More than this, we shall not onlv feel the consciousness of having tamely submit ted, without the proper exercise of the principle of self-defence, to our oppo nents, but we shall learn the stinging, bitter, consciousness ol having traitor ously thrown victory away, when we were battling in the causa of our coun try's freedom. Two triumphal pillars Samuel N. Gilliland and Shelman Dur ham can we erect to the elevation of ROBERT J. WALKER to the glorious liberty of Mississippi. SHALL WE, THEN, NOT DO SO? Superior m numbers, as we firmly believe the Democrats of Attala now are, we know not what a course differ ent from that of each man's voting ex clusively the Democratic ticket, may achieve. Such different course mav liken, unfortunately, our cause to the celebrated drop of Prince Rupert, "The least part crack'd, the whole doth fly." We must be careful not to abuse that devotion to individual sense of ri"ht or principle, a total disregard of which, so far as they possess any of it, distin guishes the self-styled whig, or old fed eral party. Favorable and distinguished as this devotion to principle is to the Democrats of our country, yet it has, we fear, been so far abused as to brin forth for its possessors more of evil than of good. We do not mean to recom mend that degrading devotion to party which sacrifices all virtue, independ ence and principle, and which so strong ly stamps whigery. But we mean to intimate that the Democrats have, in their enthusiastic love of independence, individuality of principle ever the char acteristic of that noble band forgotten the dictates of true policy, which, clothed with, and equally recommended by, vir tue, ever attends principle. The law, which is the perfection of reason, cares not for things trivial and immaterial. Bearing all this in mind, the Democrats of Attala, throwing to the dogs all mi nor partialities and differences of onin ion, surely will not fail, each and every mail, io vote exclusively lor the candi -1A . uuies oi meir own party, in t h s mnn. ner only, we are convinced, can the cor rect representation ot the real wishes o Attala the bestowing of her free votes upon Alexander G.
