CIRCflT COURT. taK Spring Terra of our Circuit Court eom hicnccs on Monday, the 22d inst., and as many of our subscribers from a distance will, at that time, visit Oxford, we would respectfully sug gest to each of them the propriety of stowing away couple of dollars for deposit in this of fi.e. Our little "hank" is in need of more eoln, and we will be pleased to attend to all deposits that thouhl he mmh therein. Remember the printer. mm a Person nl. Tub Hon. A. B. Lonostheet, formerly the President of tho University of Mississippi, and now President of the South Carolina College, reached Oxford last week. We understand that lie has tendered his resignation of his position at Columbia, to take effect in May next, but that (he health of his estimable lady is so precarious that it Is not likely that ho will return to South Carolina. Ilia numerous friends in this region will be glad to welcome him once more as a cit izen of Oxford. f Spring The vcrnnl season may now bo regarded as having been fully inaugurated. "The time of the singing of birds has come, and tho voice of the turtle is heard in the land." Tho deciduous trcos are industriously clothing themselves in their beautiful garments of green ; a great vari ety and profusion of flowers have made their ap pearance, anil the cntiro vegetable world, after ts protracted torpor, seems suddenly to have hecn overcharged with new life, which is eve rywhere gushing forth in gladness and hi beau ty. Tho balmy air is laden with gweet odors ; the soft sunshine liegets a dreamy and delicious rwiguor, and there is a deep and cnlm delight, nrid all the loveliness that now surrounds us, is the mcro consciousness of our existence. J Kditorn and Printers. Five printers left Oxford, with their compa nies, on Thursday morning Inst, bound "for the wars." From Holly Springy Colonel Thomas A. Falconer and his sons Kinloch, of thcjlerald, and Howard, (the hitter editor of this paper,) were in the ranks of the. Jeff. Davis Rifles and the Homo Guards. From the Independent South office, CoL D. B. Clayton, editor id his son D. F.mmett Clayton, one of the publishers, left with the Jen. Davis Rifles. Kleven printers from that city shouldered their guns, anil sacrilled every comfort for their country's good leaving their ilioiiies and business until the btiglo calls no wore to arms. - All honor to them. May victo ry and peace wreathe a chnplct for each brotf of : he brave men who waited for no second call to "do or die." Concert and Levee by the Young Ladies. The young ladies of Oxford, noble, patriotic, licncvolcnt. damsels, propose giving a vocal and instrumental Concert and Levee, on to-morrow evening, at the Town Hall, the proceeds to be applied to the purchase of materials for a flag to be presented by them to the University Gray.i. This company of brave young men deserve flat and xhonld have received one ere this. We hope to see a crowded house to-morrow evening. The music will lie worth more than the price of admission, whilo you will be contributing to a laudable, patriotic object. Ticket may be pro cured, "at anv time to-morrow, at the stores in town. Admission fee, fifty cents. m jWUitary aad Civic Ball. Tub Grenada Kifles, now fully armed and equipped, will be presented with a beautiful flag on Friday morning next, at 11 o'clock, by Miss. Mollie Granlierry. In the evening they will get up a Military and Civic Ball, in the usual excellent style of Grcnadians. Oxford will be well represented on the occasion. We hope to represent "the press" on that day, should bur duplicate linen be ready in time, and one or two subscriptions be cashed by to-morrow evening. The Cavalry Cosnaaav. This company, lately organized in Oxford, now numbers nearly sixty mcBjliers good and true men. The pistols (140,) ordered for them by the Hon. Jacob Thompson, will probably be received here this work. Their anifnrni will lie received ere long, when we shall have the pleas ure of seeing then on parade.

The Departed Soldiers.,. , : On lastThrsday nioitmg sboutfl o'clock, Oxford was all astir to escort the Lafayette Guards to the Depot, on their departure for Pensacola, , Ladies and children were there, at that early hour, to witness the scene. ' 'The La mar Rifles, who were so much disappointed in not receiving inarching orders, looked dejected, sorry, very sorry, because they, too, could not go. But some of that gallant company would not be restrained by any power short of Heav en's, and went along anyhow. They are now before Fort Pickens' walls, ready or battle. So" too, It was With the lion-hearted boys com posing the University Grays. That company appeared on the Depot platform and opened ranks for the Lafayette Guards to enter the cars. They cheered them and bade them God speed on their patriotic errand. A salute was fired by them over the car., as tho train moved away. A few of the "tfraygV who were determined to try ' the teabrecce of the Gulf, bade adieu ti their companions in arms, and having obtained places in the ranks of the companies at Holly Springs, they are now being browned and broil ed in the tropic sun, behind the formidable sand batteries. The Lafayette Guards numbered one hundred when the company left us, and we trust we may welcome each one back, ere long, to Oxford, Peacc is about to spread her wings, and wars "loud alarums" will soon be bushed into peaceful repose. That Mississippians are ever ready at their country's call, the recent proclamation of our Governor clearly proved. On Sundny it was generally known that the Governor wanted fif teen hundred troops for Pensacola. By Monday evening at least five thousand men were tender ed, and on Thursday morning the required num ber, fifteen hundred, were en route, as directed. Can such people be conquered? . Never! tiodcy's Lady's liook. Urox reading the above caption some of our captious readers will doubtless exclaim: "What! are you going to ptlff Godey's Lady's Book f" We answer that he or she who would not, has either too much prejudice, or has too little love for tho beautiful and good. We have been a friend of Godey from our boyhood have con stantly read his magazine, and never have we seen a line in its fair pages to wound the sensi bilities of the most sensitive Southerner. And as long as the South cannot produce a lady's magazine so valuable andAich in every depart ment, will tv continue to commend it to South ern patronage. Besides the X. York Pay Book, it is the only Northern publication vau would liko to sec patronized by our people. No lady of taste, North or South, East or West, should lie without it. Our sweetheart says so, and we know the is t lady of taste, or she never would have admired its, as sho docs. We have receiv ed tho January, February, March and April numbers of Godey. They aro each brimful of splendid embellishments and highly interesting reading matter. Ono copy $3 ; two copies, one year, $5 ; three copies, one year, $(1. If any "mercurial" quill-driver is ready to take us to task for what we have above writ ten in favor of a Northern periodical, we say, "Como on." Oxford Intelligencer.

You thought wrong, "Samuel," when you thought wo were in a "wilderness." Why, we are in tho garden spot of the Confederacy, and liko secession amazingly. We would rather bo Mississippi negro than a Tennessee apologist for Andy Johnson, Finerson Kthridgo and Abe Lincoln. We arc still here, and here expect to remain, to share the fortune of Mississippi, come went, come wo. Thank you for your kind wishes. You have "waxed fat" in old Tennessee, since last we met, and we arc happy to know that your talents arc duly appreciated ; hut sorry that you arc such a subinissionist. Tie Oxford IntclliKcncer.

Wi should have directed the reader's atten tion, last week, to the advertisement of Dol bcar's Commercial College, located in New Or leans. Give it your attention.

We have received thcJanuary, February, and March numbers of the Southern Literary Mes senger, a solid magazine of true merit, publish ed in Richmond, Va., by Macfarlane A Fergu son, at f 3 a year, in advance. It is ably edited by Dr. G. W. Bagbr, and is now in its 32d vol ume. We know of no literary periodical so highly deserving the favor and patronage of Southern readers, and we earnestly press its claims uon our people- The articles it con tains are worth treasuring in your libraries, while iU embelishroents will serve to gratify the tastes of those who are fond of pictures. The prospectus of this valuable tnagaziue will ap pear in our columns next week. Oar flaxgeatloB. We were not the first to suggest placing an iron fence around the Court-house, but we arc determined to be first ia suggesting that the fence should be painted ynv. We hope the Board of Police will carry it out, (our sugges tion not the fence,) for we can conceive of no more appropriate color to harmonize with the verdant carpet which will be soon spread in-the enclosure, and the emerald leaves which will i soon put forth from the trees and shrubbery ' lately set (Tut there. The black fence looks too i much like the enclonire of a grave-yard. We ; think our arirnmcnt wholclr de-frsariblc, and hope il may prevail. Adas' Hogtkera Eiprem.
