The approaching session of the
legislature, which will convene in
Jackson about six weeks from the
preoutt time, will be one of the
most important ever held iu this
state. The mem1 ers will have
many leading questio s to decide up
on that will require the profoundest
thought and most solicitous care.

acted upon quickly, without any ex

and by tacit agreement, as it were,

Kansas twelve years ago for poison

The Natchez fair, the only one
to be held in the state this year,
gives promise of being a grand suc
cess and the managers feel very
much encouraged by the many en
trees of fine stock aud horses.
There will be a good exhibit of
cotton, machinery for its manufac
ture, and all kind of farm produce
as well as many uuiqe attractions
in poultry. The fair will open up
on Monday, Dec. 27th and will
last six days. There will be rac
ing of the fine horses every after
noon during the whole fair.

From the hour that the Gover
nor's message favoring the passage
of a capitol bill was read to both
houses of the Mississippi legisla
ture of 1807, up to the announce
ment, of the vote on the Governor's
veto, was one of the most exciting
episodes ever recorded in the an
nals of State legislation.
From the initiatory tactics of the
House capitol committee on the
plan of the building, down to the
report of that committee on the
Governor's veto, was one of the
hardest pitched mental battles ever
fought out in a legislative arena.
Able arguments by conscientious
lawvers were heard on the merits
and demerits of the Governor's
objections, with citation of author
ities as to constitutional preroga
And it is flattery to none to sav
that from the Chief Executive of
our State down through the per
sonnel of the membership of both
Houses of that legislature, that
e .cu ana an were governea Dy wuat
was conceived to be honest con
victions. Is it necessary that that -discussion
should be indefinitely prolong
ed, to the detriment and injury of
the issues it involves?
Is it needful that the State
should be the loser by that extra
ordinary session, or that the fruit
of its agitation shou'.d be withered
Is there such a divergence of
opinion amongst the adherents,
:m 1 opposers of the policy of the
Governor, as to necessitate a dis
ruption amongst the representa
tives' of the people?
Is there no middle ground of
concesMon and accomplishment,
where the extremes and the means
can reach an agreement?
Are we, the sworn agents of leg
islative enactment, so derelict in
our duties as to defy adjudication?
Are the points of difference so
many and so varied, as to leave us
desperate, determined and unrea
sonable? It is n-'t evident to even a casual

Walter McLaurin, warden of the

3,000 bales of cotton; 25,000 bush

peas, besides large qualities of hay,
fodder, vegetables, etc. A $2 ,000
barn is being erected on the Rank

new land will be cleared on that
