The wheat nud oat crop of the County may be regarded as a failure. There arc, howev er, a few limited localities in which an ordi nary yield of wheat will be produced. University of Jliasiuiippi. , We are indebted to tho Hon. J. M. Howry, Secretary of the Board of Trustees, for a copy of the University Catalogue for 185D-60. It is handsomely got up, and is, wc perceive, from the Job office of the Mississippi!!, at Jackson. The number of students on tho roll of the Law Department is forty-one: the number on the academic list is one hundred and seventy, 'five: total, two hundred and sixteen. The total number of alumni is two hundred and seventy-four; of whom two hundred and forty one are Bachelors of Arts, and thirty-three, Bacla-lors of Law. Thcro is an error in the statement of this last number, in the general summary of the Catalogue, whore it is put down at fifteen ; but, by actual count, we found it to be thirty-three. The flourishing condition of our University is very gratifying; and its rapidly growing reputa tion, no less so. Wc are informed that the de mand for the Catalogue, and for information in regard to the institution, from Ml parts of Mis sissippi and the neighboring States, has been, for the last two months, altogether unprecedented in the history of the University; and that the prospect is for a much larger attendance, at the next icsbion, than has ever been known before. A Brntnl Father. An Irishman, named Dunn, who lives next door to CapL Delay's big cannon, having dis covered, on Thursday last, that he was mix us a aura of money, amounting to seventy odd dollars, and suspecting that his little daughter, about ten years old, had appropriated it, proceeded to in flict upon the .poor creature a most cruel beating, to compel a disclosure of the place where, It was assumed, she had concealed tho money. His wife, w ho interfered in behalf of the child, had an eye "beautifully" blackened for her pains. Tho screams of tho little victim, who was even dangerously hurt, attracted tho observation of citixens, who terminated tho shocking scene by taking the tender father before s magistrate, by4 whom he was sont to jail for six hours. When, that night, he was released, it is said that he was soundly lynched. His own version of that part of the affair is, that those who punished him were "nagurs, and Irih nngursst that" On Satur day, another Irishman, who seems to have known very well where tho money was, produced it. The little girl, who is thus shown to hare been innocent, is still severely suffering, Unloa Female College The annual examination of the classes in this institution will commence on Monday, tho 11th Inst., and closo on Wednesday, tho 13th. In accordance with a resolution passed at the last annual meeting of the Board of Trustees, the examination will be private. The' commencement will be on Thursday, the 14th. The senior class will read compositions, and the degrees will Ho conferred. ' The U. L O. Society will have their public ex hibition Thursday night, the 12th. The concert will be on Wednesday night, the 1 3th. The annual meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held on Friday, the 8th. Important busi ness will come before the Board ; among other things, the election of a Family. Progress of Socialistic Philosophy. A gentleman of this town informs ns of a cir cumstance which strikes us as being rather sin gular. Two cats, upon his premises, each pre sented him with a litter of kittens, within a day or so of each other; and tho two mothers not only consented to share the same room with their offspring, but each of them. Indifferently, Is daily observed to perform the offices of mater nity towards the individual kittens of the two litter alike, without the slightest distinction. W are not sufficiently versed in cat-ology to know whether there is anything unusual in the facts just stated ; and we prefer to believe that he doctrines of the socialists arc beginning to make their way among the creatures to whose features they are best adapted. y ' That Iroa Peace, Arouna me ruonc square in uxlord, will, it is likely, be completed during the present week. ft has been a long time in contemplation hav ing been determined on by the Board of Police as long age as the Spring of 1 857 ; but the under taking was deferred for the time, in considera tion of the heavy Railroad tax which our citizens were called upono pay. Wbea the fence shall have been erected, and the grounds within the enclosure are graded, the effect, no doubt, will be very greatly to improve the appearance of what has long been a most un sightly portion of orir town.

In no one year of the last twenty has there beon such a general " rage " for improvement as now prevail, in and about .our beautiful town. The new edifices, which areClither contemplated or in course, of being erected, are numerous, and of a superior description while the older residences are undergoing a proocss of repair and renovation, which prom ise, soon to work a complete transformation in the Outward appearance of, the place. CoL W. F.

Wm. Turner, Esq., is putting " thefiuifdiing touches " to a large and roomy residence, of very fine apearance, a few blocks from the public square, on the street which leads to Holly Springs. Just beyond Mr. Turner' ii a vacant lot, on the same lido of the street, owned by Mr. V. Q. Reynolds, who ha Contracted for the building, in the course of the season, of a new dwelling-house upon it. Still further on, upon the west side of the same street, CoL T. E. B. Pegne has already kid the foundation of a large and expensive mansion, of brick, which will be, when com. plctcd, olio of the ornaments of the town. Tho new Masonic Hall, in the second story of which the iNTBLLiOKN-iita ha it office, is so nearly completed that little more than half the plastering remains to bo done. One of the stores in tho lower story is already occu pied by Mr. Doyle, ; and tho other will soon receive the stock of goods of Messrs. Web ber ii Watkin, to whom it has been rented. Messrs. Geo. D. Fee, and Archibald t Deamland, have commenced the erection of a couple of two-story brick stores on the cast side of tho public square ; and the walls of the first story are already nearly np. A. L Shotwell, Esq., it is understood, has contracted for putting up a residence, of an elegant description, at a cost of some f 1 5,000; and there are, doubtless, other contemplated improvements which have not yet come to our knowledge.

On motion, a committee was appointed to wait upon the presiding officer elect, and conduct him to the chair. The committee having performed that duty, J udge Gholson responded in appropriate remarks, which were frequently interrupted by applause. As a mere looker on at Charleston, he reviewed the acts of that convention. He warmly approved the action of tho Mississippi delegation, and was ready to assume any responsibility arising there from. He also reviewed the compromise, inter vention and Drcd Scott questions.

Wharton read a letter from the Hon. D. C Glenn, stating why be would not be present at the convention to sustain the action of the delegates to Charleston. On motion, such pf the delegates to the Char leston Convention as were present were invited o address the Convention. - CoL C. Hooker, being present, responded. He had hoped, when he went to Charleston, that the Convention would be prepared to lay down a platform equally acceptable to every section. But this hope was disappointed. He reviewed, in detail, the proceedings of the Charleston Conven tion, and stated the causes which led to the with drawal of the Southern delegates. -- Major E. Barksdale was called for. He re sponded, giving a detailed account of the pro ceedings of the ' Charleston .Convention. He argued at Icgth the correctness of the course pursued by the Mississippi delegation, and ex plained Lis view as to what should be done in the present condition of affairs. .

But he would not pro. tnise to remain with th Democratic party very long it would depend en her action in the pro sent emergency. He could not act with men, unless tHey would fight freely and perseveringly for Southern Rights and Southern Equality. Hon. J. W. Thotnpaoii, of Chickasaw; followed next A a delegate to Charleston, he exposed the intrigue of the Douglas men in the Charles ton Convention. He would be plain, and freely confess that he had little hope of ever accom plishing anything with the Northwestern Demo cracy. They were wedded to Douglas, whose whole aim and object, he verily believed, was to rule or ruin the Democratic party. But be was one of the hopeful sort ; th times are troublous, and we ought to be moderate and con siderate. He was in favor of the Delegates to the Richmond Convention being also commis sioned to the Baltimore Convention.

Blythe, after briefly addressing the Con vention, moved to reconsider the vote just taken. The motion was sustained by Mr. Drane, of Choctaw. Gen. J. T. Freeman spoke at length In favor of th resolution of Mr. Harris. He doubted the propriety of sending the delegate to Balti. more. The contest before the country will be between the Southern States with the Richmond nomination, and the Northern State with the Chicago nomination. Judge A. iL Clayton, of Marshal, followed. He thought the delegate should first go to Rich mond, re-asseverate the doctrine promulgated at Charleston and present a united front to the Baltimore Convention, n hoped the original resolution, offered by the committee would be. adopted. Gen. Chaa Clark, of Bolivar, and Mr. Greer, of MarshalL followed. On motion of General W. W. W. Wood, the Convention adjourned till S o'clock, r. u. - S o'clock, p. m. Convention was called to order. Mr. M. Nelson, of Madison, a delegate was admitted to a seat. Mr. Greer, of Marshall, resumed his remarks on the queetion before the Convention. Ho hoped no party action would be taken, and thought that the delegates should go to Balti more. Hon. Samuel J. Gholson, next got the floor, amid loud cries for the " question." The Judge remarked that he was too old now to be restrain ed from doing his duty, and proceeded to argue tho propriety of sending the delegates to Balti more, and hoped therefore, tliat the vote would be reconsidered. Hon. -W. P. Harris, replied submitting further and still more forcible arguments in support of his resolution. He wanted the Richmond Con vention to be a substantial thing, and not the mere shadow of the Baltimore Convention. His resolution, however, provided that the delegation should go to Baltimore under certain contingen cies. Mr, Thos. W. narri-s of Marshall, responded. He argued in favor of tho resolution of the com mitteedeeming them all-sufficient Simeon Oliver, of De Soto, followed, approv ing of the resolution offered by Mr. Harris. He thought so far as there was a difference between" the two resolutions, tho discussion appeared to him to be one between twecdlo-dum and twccdle dce. Et-Cov. Matthews, as chairman of the com mittee on Resolutions, offered a few suggestion. Gen. Wood called for tho previous question, the re-consideration of tho vote by which the resolution of Mr. Harris was adopted. Tho call of tho counties was than called, with the following result Ayes. Adams, Chickasaw, Choctaw, De So to, Franklin, Itawamba, Jackson, Jasper, Lafay ette, Leake, Lowndes, Madison, MarshalL Mon roe, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Pontotoc, Rankin, Tippah, Tishomingo, Yallabusha 48.

So the motion to reconsider was carried. The question was then taken on the original resolution. It was moved and carried that the vote by which the previous question waa ordered be re considered. T. L Sharpe, of Lowndes, offered the 'follow ing as a Substitute for the original resolution and the amendment offered by Mr. Harris. 4. That reposing entire confidence in the wis dom and fidelity of our said delegate to th Richmond Convention, w do hereby recommend to them to defer final action at the Richmond Convention until after the adjournment of the Convention to be held at Baltimore on the 18th day of June, and do accredit them to the Balti more Convention with full power and without instruction's to pursue such course in reference to. the al Conventions as may in their discre tion, be best calculated to save the Constitution secure the unity and harmony of the Dem- ocratic party,' and to obtain the nomination of a sound man upon a Bound platform embrac!. j the cardinal principles incorporated in the tn j r ity report aubmitted to the late Charleston Con vention, which are dearer than success, and par amount to all the chums of party. i Mr. Fontaine moved that the amen 1 T.t 1 ' adopted by acclamation.
