Coffciville, (Miss.) September 1, 1813.
Mr. Editor- Allow me to call the attention
of your readers to a candidate for the Clerk
ship of the Chancery Court at Carrollton, Col.
J. .1. HODGE, who" has recently paid us a vis
it on an electioneering tour. Col. llodge is a
rTntlman in the fullest sense of the term
a man of business and well acquainted with
- . . i l 1
the duties ol the office he seeks at your nanus.
Hp Is not :is well known in Yalobusha and
Tallahatchie counties as he is in Carroll and
Holmes, or his election would be certain.
The opinion of the Bar in the counties where
he is known is decidedly in his favor, and al
most unanimous in the town of Ins residence.
If von see a tall well dressed gentleman, (with
a white hat,) courteous and kind in bis inter
course with his associates, dignified and com
manding in his general bearing, and very well
disposed towards every body, (and particular
ly voters) that's Col. llodge," of Carrollton, the
verv man for Clerk of the Chancery Court at

out of bouse, land and negroes, why their ne

endeavor to incite every person who holds a
dollar of Union money, or who has ever lost
bv its depreciation, against the Bank. Is it
not a plain case, that just the amount a dollar
of Union money depreciates, it is so much
dear cash to the bank borrower and of equal
loss to the bill-holder. To those who have
been swindled out of their all by bank-borrowers,

P hc -Now neighbor, one more remark and
I am done. Let us go back again to the sub
ect of the alleged unconstitutionality of the
aw under which the money was borrowed
Understand you to say because the low au
horfJng the sale of the bonds is unconstitu
tioni' t would be equally wrong and immoral
word for it, you will find that he borrowed
more money than any bond-payer in the State
and that he used and praised the bank as
long as he could get a dollar, and then turned
upon and cursed it, and tried hardest to ren
der its paper worthless, and lo destroy its con
stitutional establishment. The people are be
ginning to open their eyes, and from the daily
glowing accounts we receive from different
parts of the State, we have the best assuran-
Tliixo who voted in the affirmative, art,

ses, and was returned with the veto of the
Gov. The bill required the Governor to exe
cute and deliver to the Union Hank, Honds to
the amount of TEN Ml LLK )NS FIVE HUN
The hill 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:
"The bill to be entitled, "An act to extend
additional privileges to the Mississippi Union
Bank," accompanying the foregoing message,
Was taken up,
Ami put upon its passage by ayes and noes,
as provided for in the constitution,
And passed by a constitutional majority of
The vote is as follows:
In the affirmative, Mr. Speaker, Messrs. Ar
mat, HROWN, of Copiah, et. al. 45.
In the negative 13."
The above extracts prove that General
Brown regarded the Union Bank as constitu
tional, that he was willing to give its mana
gers control over ten millions five hundred
thousand dollars more of the bonds of the
State, the proceeds of which would have been
squandered like those already negotiated.
But Gen. Brown has given additional testimo
ny that he regards the Union Bank as consti
tutional, by his application for, and obtaining
discounts, for himself to the amount of Four
teen Thousand Dollars, and assisting his friends
through the credit of his endorsement, to ob
tain thesum of $40,000. But there ts on
good reason why Gen. Brown should advo
cate the repudiation of the Union Bank Bonds.
He owes the Union Bank $10,000 at this time
repudiation will reduce the value of the
notes of the Union Bank, and thus enable the
General to pay his $10,000 with a trifle.
Independent voters of Mississippi, it is now
for you to say whether or not this corrupt
and inconsistent politician shall rule over you.
He has violated your Constitution which he
was sworn to support he has borrowed thou
sands of dollars from the bank, paid it out to
the toiling yeomanry of the land, and imme
diately cried out in favor of repudiation, hoping
thereby to render the money wormiest, so
that he could pay the bank with a mere whis
tle. Who suffered by the operation? Why
those to whom the Union Bank money was
paid. The day of reckoning is near at hand,
and the spirit of a cheated, wronged and in
sulted laboring people, has whispered in our
ears, "Defeat to Brown and all tk n aaftel hamm
