R. JACOBS, EDITOR & PROPRIETOR,
J iik great necessity existing in the central
portion of this State for a Journal to advocate
and support the cause of Democracy and Demo
cratic principles, as well as to expose "Coon
Humbugs," and "Hard Cider" influence, is too
well known to the citizens of this and the adja
cent counties to be reverted to by us at the pre-
sent time. The campaign of 1S40 is fresh in
the memory of all of you; the result was disas
trous and degrading to the Democracy of the
United States, and will always be remembered
as a dark spot upon the fair fame of Democratic
principles.
The Presidential canvass for 1844, has now
fairly opened the crisis is near at hand, and it
behooves the Democracy to be on the alert to
have their sentinels upon the outer walls to give
the alarm of approaching danger, and avert
the deadly shaft aimed at our political as well
as civil liberty; and hurl from the high places
of honor and trust, those political aspirants
who were elevated by "Log Cabin" excitements,
&c; and prevent those Gladiatorial demagogues
who are now in the political arena, and would
"sell their birthright for a mess of porridge,"
or, in other words, would attempt to overthrow
our free institutions, by saddling upon the peo
ple a United States Bank, from holding the reins
of our Government.
The jKFf-rnsoMAs Democrat will advocate
and support the principles bequeathed to the De
mocracybythe immortal Jefferson, and sus
tained and acted upon by a Madison, and a Jack
son, tic, &c, and will support for the Presi
dency, the nominee of the Democratic National
Convention. Phinciples not MEN, will receive
the uncompromising support of the Editor. It
will also contain the news of the day, both For
eign and Domestic, Literature, &c, kc.
We shall nail our flag to the mast, with the
hope that the Democracy of Attala will come
to the rescue, and give their undivided support
to assist us in our enterprise. We do not un
dertake the publishing of a political Journal
ignorant of the responsibility devolving upon
us. vve have, besides beinsr a practical Dnn-
ter, had some experience in publishing, &c.
The first number of the Jkffeiihojian Demo,
ciiat will be issued on the first Saturday in
January next, if sufficient support should be
received to warrant us in the undertaking.
Kosciusko, Miss., Nov. 22, 1843. ,

Job Work
EXECUTED at this Office with neatness and
despalchj September 16.
by George P. Morris: illustrated by J. G. Chap,
man, who is engaged exclusively for the work
Terms: Three Dollars per annum single
numbers 0 cents.
In the course of a few weeks the undersigned
will commence, on his own account, the publi
cation of a new series of the New York Mirror,
in the octavo form, on an entirely novel and
original plan, with a Steel Engraving in every
number, and at the reduced price of $3 pe.r an
num, or 6c per copy.
1 he New York Mirror will appear with many
striking and attractive features, distinguishing
it from any other periodical, it will be published
on new type, and fine paper, and each number
will contain a beautiful original Engraving on
Steel, designed and etched by Chapman, illus
trating the letter-press which it accompanies,
and which it will invest with peculiar interest.
Besides the contributions of all our extensive
corps of correspondents which embrace most
of the talent of this country- we have made ar
rangements for fresh and early translations from
some of the best writers of France, and for
proof sheets from several of the popular au
thors of England. With such materials, and
with such able fe ow laborers in the literary
vineyard, we hope to present to the American
reader, a weekly journal of great value and un
usual excellence. The parade of mere names
will be seduously avoided.
The Mirror will be remarkable we hope, ra
ther for good articles without names, than for
poor articles with distinguished names. It will
embrace in its scope every department of ele
gant literature, comprising tales of romance,
sketches ol society, manners and sentiments,
and every day lite, piquant essays, domestic and
foreign correspondence, literary intelligence,
wit and humor, fashion and gossip, poetry, the
fine arts, and literary, musical and dramatic
criticisms. Its tendency will be cheerful and
enlivening as well as improving. It will seek
to gratify every refined taste, but never- to of
fend the most fastidious and it will ever feel
its duty to be, to "turn the sunny side of things
to human eyes."
The work will be published every Saturday,
in numbers of sixteen largo octavo super-royal
pages, with double columns and enclosed in a
neat and ornamental cover. It will form at the
end of the year, two superb volumes, each of
four hundred and sixteen pages, filled with the
gems of literature and the fine arts.
The very low price at which it will be issued
renders it the cheapest periodical inthis or any
other country, considering the cost and beauty
of its -
Fifli'Two Engravings,
and the intrinsic value of its literary contents.
Those desirous of receiving the paper from the
commencement, will have it punctually sent to
their address upon their forwarding to the un
dersigned, at No. 4 Ann street, 8d free of ex
pense. '
Letters enclosing the amount of subscription,
may be franked by Postmasters. Agents, car
riers, newsmen, will be supplied on the usual
terms. 03-The cash system will be rigidly ad
hered to, without any deviation whateverTD
Such Editors as copy the above will oblige
me by forwarding a marked paper and resum
ing the exchange, which was interrupted much
to my regret, by circumstances over which I had
no control. GEORGE P. MORRIS.

of our State Legislature, it will also contain a
faithful synopsis of all the important proceedings
of Congress, and other transactions at the Feder

The Daily Reformer will record all the intercs
ting news of the Smth, and the Union give ab
stracts of the cotton and produce markets, at
home and abroad the movements of political
parties the latest foreign intelligence and
whatever may be of advantage or profit to the
citizens of our country.
Various important measures will demand the
attention of the ensuing session. Among the
mosr prominent, are Our debts expenditure
and income Slate Districting system abuse of
public trust banks public education important
changes in the judiciary amendment of Consti
tution for extending Chancery jurisdiction to Cir
cuit Courts Penitentiary system completion of
the Rail Road from the city of Jackson to the
Alabama line. These, with many other equally
momentous subjects, will come before the peo
ple's representatives for searching investigation
and enlarged discussion, and final action, seri
ously affecting the interests of Mississippi, and
all having intercourse or connection with its go
vernment or citizens.
Jn view of the solicitude of the people to Le
informed of the progress of these vital measures
of State reform, we have secured the services of
Jouk Marshall, Esq., a young gentleman well
qualified for the task, to report the proceedings
of the Legislature, and also the speeches of the
members. We have also eugaged the valuable
aid of Col. C. A. BiUDFonn, late editor of the
Southern Tribune, as our Reporter at the seat of
the general government.
The ensuing session will be of a character
not exceeded in importance since the organiza
tion of our State. Whether losers or gainers in
pecuniary reward, if we shall accomplish the
desideratum so long desired, of diffusing among
the people, and rendering them familiar with the
acts and conduct of their representatives, we
shall be satisfied. Relying upon the intelligence
of the democratic party, and the liberality of the
citizens of our State, generally, we are confident
that our labors will be abundantly appreciated.
We have established the Southern Weekly Re
former on a permanent basis and made the city
01 jacitsou our permuneni residence, aim in view
of the future, we know that an unlaltering sup
port of democratic principles, will obtain for us
unsought and tmasked the yermanenf: respect
and esteem ef the party.
At the present era of our history, the people
of the United States have before them matters
of stupendous national interest, involving the
prosperity, nay, existence of republican institu
tions. Congress will be asked to admit Texas
into the Uuion to repeal the tariff and distri
bution clause to assume the debts of the States
to adopt some plan of collecting and disburs
ing the Nation's revenue. Our foreign inter-
cimr8CtsiiCL i'a?T"-tt-irii"jlrctt- Britain, will- b a
source of intense interest. In a short time we
must know the political preferences of the de
mocracy in regard to a presidential candidate
the convention of the States will give us the
probable result of the national convention. Ma
ny of the free and en'ightened democratic press
have raised the standard of some great defender
of their principles. They are so many tributes
due virtuous, generous benefactors of the repub
lic. We have, unfurled our banner, and upon
its folds may be read the glorious time-honored
names of Calhoun and Woodburt. History
reveals their lives without reproach, and their
acts, the country's. The national convention,
according to democratic usuage, will proclaim
the final choice. May it be our favorite may
it be the pure-hearted, honest aucrunwaveriBff
democrat of the south but on whose head soever
it may fall, that choice will meet our approval,
and receive our honest and zea'ous support.
Under no circumstances will our ardor cool, or
spirits droop, in favor of the will of the demo
cratic party. Be our candidate Caluous, or bo
it Van Buren, time shall show that wt war not
for men, but tire willing to lay doM'n every thing
without the feelings of sacrifice, for the good of
the democracy of the Union.
We invite the co-operation of our friends in
all parts of the state, and the south, in our pre
sent enterprise. For the small sum of Three
Dollars they will obtain a far more ample nnd
complete detail of the proceedings of the state
Legislature than the whole volume of printed
reports, and the difnision of correct iuformation
upon state and national questions greatly af-;
acting the opinions and decisions ot the Amer-
ican people.
We especially solicit the support of our mer
chants, and others, iu the city of Jac&son, in the
way of advertisements. The facilities and im
portant advantages resulting to all classes, from
a daily issue, must be apparent to every intelli
gent and business man. Every citizkw must
feel a deep interest in the character and increas
ed prosperity of our favobed citi. We ar
more willing to contribute our share toward the
accomplishment of these great objects; and on
ly desire that the advantages shall be rendered,
reciprocal.
The merchants of New Orleans, Natchez,.
Vicksburg, tjc, will also find their interest pro
moted by selecting the Daili and Weeklt Re
formeb as mediums of advertising. During
the session and business season, thousands of
copies of each paper will be circulated in every ,
section of the state, by members of the Legisla
ture, and regular subscribers. The present im
pression of the Weeklt IIefoiimer is upwards
of 1500 copies, and rapidly increasing and nu-
merous copies are also circulated in the adjoin
ing states of Louisiana, Alabama aud Tennes
see. We have spared neither efforts nor means
to reuder our paper worthy the support of all
classes of readers! and it will be found, we trust,
one among the best tamilt, business, and po
litical journals in the south.
