From the above it will lie seen thatlienl.
BraWll voted for a reference to a committee,
the act to extend nlilUunal prittUtgU to the
Union Hank and was himself made one of
it. The committee iil'terwardi rr ported the
bill to "extend additional privileges to the
Union Hank," which then passed both llou-
..I . r.i
ses, and was returned with llio veto oi mo
(iov. The hill required the Governor to exo
cutc and deliver to the Union Hank, Bondl to
th,. amount ..I TEN MILLIONS FIVE HUN
DRED THOUSAND DOLLARS lor its use.
The bill was, as before stated, vetoed and re
turned by the Governor to the House for its
further action. The annexed extract from
the Journals, shows the fate of the bill and
the position occupied by Gen. Brown:
l i
exports of a country are an index to the na
tional prosperity, that it is not the groai
amount of the nominal value that must be
looked to, but that the excels of the r.rpnrs, over
o
cate of repudiating five millions, he (Judge H.)
would have been compelled to advocate the
repudiation of the whole fifteen and a half
millions! Judge Clayton took up Brown's ia-
loosea to, out. mat utr r..r.-.i r.jnni, i-c - - o . . . , .

selves to the country not to disturb the com

after milking old brindle as long as she would
yield a drop to his most importunate tugging,
lie was now traversing the country slandering
her pedigree, calling her bad names, and even
asserting that she was no cow at all, but a
great monster, stalking through the land as a
Wolf in sheep's clothing, and trying to despoil
the free people of Mississippi of their liber
ties. Brown took occasion to inform the Whigs
that two of their nominees for State offices
(Hardeman and Galloway,) had paid off much
larger liabilities thai, his to the Union bank,
by me ana of the bankrupt law. But here
again Clayton had him on the hip. He pro
duced Brown's letter to his constituents, when
he was a member of Congress, informing them
that he should vote for the bankrupt law, and
use all his influence to get it passed.
I thought on one occasion that Judge Brown
treated his old friend.Gov. M'Nutt, rather un
kindly. In his speech at Salem, Clayton
belabored him for voting for M'Nutt after he
had sigr.ed the bonds. Brown replied that he
only did so as a choice of evils.-
Upon the whole, the result of the discus
sions in this county has been very auspicious
to the bond payers. Judge Clayton has won
the esteem of every one even his bitterest
political opponents. All parties admit that
Clayton has far exceeded their expectations,
and that Brown has fallen below them. In the
present state of feeling, I have not a doubt but
that Clayton will not only obliterate Tucker's
majority of 311 in this county, but that he
will carry the county by Old Tip's majority
of 105. One thing certain: the bond payers
will vote the strongest between Williams and
Clayton, and the general opinion is now that
Clayton is the strongest. But if it should ap
pear that Col. Williams has a better chance ot

Ihur Sir: A few days r, I leceived a
note frotfl you, as Chairman of the Whig 0tH
trail Comiiuttee, Inibunlng ma that I bad re-
l ived the nomination for Auditor ol Public
Accounts, in place of Luke Lea, E., who da
dined the former nomination by the Conven
tion. I accept the nomination with much pleasure,
and will strive to prove myself worthy of it,
by activity and aaal in defence of whig prin
ciples during the Canv.UI, and a faithful dis
charge of the duties of the office, should i be
so fortunate as to receive a majoiity ot the
votes.
To yourself and other members of the
Committee, I sincerely tender an expression
of the gratitude 1 feel fof the distinguished
consideration which prompted you, unani
moudij, to nominate me for so responsible
and important a station. Believe me, sir, I
shall never forget the high compliment thus
bestowed upan my humble self,
With sentiments of respect,
Your friend and servant,
A. K. JOHNSON.
To Wm. Ybhgeb, Esq.
Prudence and Economy. What if you
have a patch on your knee it is nothing
to be ashamed of. It lays easier on the mind
than a writ at the door, or an interview with
a creditor who feels that you have wronged
him. Better wear an old hat, an unfashionable
coat, or a pair of cow-hide shoes; than to
live extravagantly, run in debt, and have every
body feel that you are a villain. There's
nothing like prudence and economy; BSpeciai
lv if you are striving to keep up your credit.
Who will trust you if you are poor and too
lazy or proud to work, and dress in fine broad
cloth and display gold chains, rings and breast
pins? No one. But with a homespun coat,
brown face, hard hands and industrious habits,
you are sure to be favored. Your appear
ance indicates that you ere frugal and will be
a safe customer.

tribution fund, together with such a sinking
fund as could be raised with the surplus reve
nue, which the present rate of taxation must
leave in the treasury, that the public debt
could be discharged without selling any tree
man to the bond-holders, or depriving any
citizen of his' liberties. But he at the same
time informs the people that if their repre
sentatives should think proper to pass a law

Gazette states that, in addition to the advan
tages of the Tomato for table use, the vine is
of'great value as food for cattle, especially
cows. It is stated that a cow fed on Tomato
vines will give more milk, and yield butter of
finer flavor, and in greater abundance, than on
anv other long feed ever tried. It is thought
... I i I . . I
too, that more good io m ior came, ana
at less expense, can be raised from a given
quantity of ground planted in Tomatoes, than
from any other vegetable known in the South
ern country.
The following beautiful sentiment is from
the pen of Miss Bremmer, in her remarks on
physical education:
Little CbildrM. Freedom, freedom, the
west wind of joy, whose pure breath alone can
expand every flower of life give freedom to
those innocent little ones, who. to immortality,
must wander through a stormy country. Let
the air of liberty, not the simoon of restraint,
accompany their first steps, and the world will
not then see so many exhau ted wanderers
sink down powerless, and fall under their bur
den by the way side.
To discover the true temper of a man, we
should trace him to his domestic roof, tor it is
there we may judge how far the part he acts
in private, agrees with the character he per
forms in public life. The lamb abroad is too
often found to be the wolf at home.
Never be ashamed of the truth, never be
afraid ot doing right.
