' Notwithstanding these impediments and the urgent requirement of roy atten tion At lioioe after an absence of several motitbr, 1 regularly attended to all the lo cal interests ,of the county, at,well sitcb measures of general? importance, ns tended to advance the j prosperity of the State; nor iiW 1 ' leave i the station that Vou hud assigned to tne.until the fiiia! ad journment ot the Legislature, on Ibe 16:1 of February last. 4 :.

J " ' . The next measure in which I took tie greatest iuterest, was the establishment of a system of Common Schools in this State, I succeeded, with the fid of the" Iriends of the measure, iu getting a bill for thai purpose through the House of Represen tatives, tut it was to lte 4n the session ibat it failed to receive las action of the Senate, iany other matters of ast ltn portance to the welfare of the Slate were considered by tbe Legisloture, a detail of nbicb, 1 shall not attempt to enter into in this short address. Among tbe most im portant was a bill to transfer the" State slock in the Planters' Ba,nk, amounting to two trillion of Dollars, to the use of the Mississippi Rail Road Company v This it is suppoW will enable said -company lo finish that great work to Jackscn in "about two years. A bill was lso passed to pledge tbe faith nt the tate lor the pay. nteht of .$5,000,000 of dollars in State i bonJtiw the purpose ot raisinjr, s fund to carry into eflWt general ysten of internal mproemeot.

Uf Sequence ot sicknes, absence, and oth er causes, there is not generally much o ver six bundled votes polled al be gene rat election. Now the wh le number of names on tbe instructions received through the. bands of Arthur Smith sq., which were alt that J received in favor of a de mocratic Senator, amounted lo precisely THREE HUNDRED AND TAVO. Of this number, SEVEN individuals, at least of whom (.have preserved a list were also signers of tie instructions to vote for a Bank' Senator; besides t have reason to elieve there are some names that are not qualified, Voters, leaving out tbe seven whose weight would be equal on both side?, there - would remain only TWO HUNDRED and NINETY-FIVE out of about SEVEN hundred voters. At I wish to present this matter in its true light to my constituents, I have been thus precise; , having ' preserved copies of all the instrutionj I received, which eaD be inspected by, any person who may wish to satisfy himself oh the tubject. ieHiat part on the county where 1 reside1 I as instructed by, a sbajoHty, to vote for a Bank Senator. j ljut there! ot bfing a majority ot jbe county on either side, I exercised roy owrt senlimenls, ant oleid for Mr. 2enderson. . iHien it is Copsi J lered that the county was literally fan tacked, and tbat evera of the Cotrnty officers were engaged tn getting signers, the attempt to obtain s majority of -the ualified voters of tbotounty Was a com plete ABORtjos, and proves quite conclu sively What 1 have fjways believed, that -a large majority of. tlie couuty are per fectly satisfied with my tours. Several who signed instructions in opposition to my sentiments, informed me afterwards tbat (bey did not' understand it properly or (bey would not have signed. Jt is a well known fact that many respectable citizens who belong to the democratic par. ty are in favpr of a Nstion.il Bank. Mr. Henderson is in favor of such an institu tion, as a fiscal agent to aid in collecting, preserving, and distributing 'the Public Revenue, and to regulate the currency of the coutry. His chief competitor tbe Hoii'l. C. A -Snthh, is a NuUifier, ahd in favor of the Sub-'Trefcury, s.cheBe.
