That accounts Whig Harmony. Tbe Whigs in Congress have again met in cancns, and again made a failure. The South : ern portion of the delegation urging a settiug j forth of the principles upon which the party j iptends . acting in the approaching conflict^ affik! ihe Northern portion «intending that it were better to play the old game of going it blind on a mum man The Seward faction J carried their point, for they say they are willing that a <?w straggling Whigs from Southern democratic States, should come in un to convention and attempt to rule the great and effective Northern portion of National Whiggwy, by their fiat. *So will they always carry it. It is now rather a doubt in many minds whether there will be a convention of the Rational Whig party, but it is surmised that the great North will present as their choice Gen. Scott, and the South may do as they like in supporting him. The Whig party is in à deplorable state of sublime confusion. Scott has the inside track and the North which sup ports him has the power ; the Southern Whigs I arc making some noise over their devoted Fill more, but it will turn out, " all souud aud fury signifying nothing." To give our readers an idea of the oppo - sition displayed by the Northern Whigs against Mr. Fillmore, we quote as follows from a Northern Fillmore press : " The anti-Fillmore presses, in their fury, outstrip (he anti-adiniuistration presses of the Democratic party iu their zeal and hatred of ihe administration. They remind us daily of J the address of Moloch to the fallen angels. It called upon to support Mr. Fillmore they cry— ... 1 per. takes the r lllmorc papers of New l T ork -"No! let us rather cltoose, Armed with hell flames, and fury, all at once, O'er heaven's high towers to force resistless way, Turning our tortures into horrid arms Against the torturer." The Courier and Enquirer, a Whig pa to task for urging his nomination, upon the ground that Mr. Fillmore once expressed him self heartily opposed to holding the office more than one term. The Courier speakiug of 3Ir. F in this connection says : j "lie not only vindicated the 'one term | principle,'and proved its applieab^ity to every 1 incumbent of the Presidential chair, but he J |cited the conduct of John Tyler as "an ad ditional proof that our only security gainst trciuhc.y nndinordinate ambition, is found in ' the one term principle.'

I ; The Presidency. This is now the question of questions, every one enquiring, " who will be the nomi nee of the Democracy ?" Though wc would not pretend to answer | tbis q^sUon with any great confidence that our answer would be correct, yet we can give it as our opinion, that James Buchanan, will lie the man. The Southern States with but few exceptions are for him as their first choice, and his chances in the North and West are as good as any other. In New York, the most prominent names for her Electoral vote arc Marcey and Dick i nso „ ( but should these not succeed before the Convcntion Mr Buchanan is the next, and can present a I *» " «''»» ,Par,scan uudwtll willingly uuite, and, with I the dde K atcs of tbe ß reat States of New !

We shall rejoice to know this fact and to see verefied tl\p first fruits of this righteous decision of the Convention. Then will we see the broad banner of Jamf,s Bi^ij anan, of Pennsylvania, displayed to the peo ple, and the response of that people will be ■uch that such a victory has not taken place since the ever memorable contest between Mr. Adams and Gen. Jackson, in November. 1828. Then it was that thc old Keystone State spoke trumpet-tongue by thousands upon thousands in her majority for the Hero Andrew 'Jackson, and, os we believe James Buchanan will be the nominee of tbe Balti more Convention, she will again rise in her strength aud bestow upon her favorite son, a majority in 1852, equal to the one she gave to Andrew Jackson in 1828." Louisville Democrat. —This very valua ble Democratic paper, of which wc have be fore spokcu, is offered on reasonable terms for the campaign.

A Christian Chinese Emperor.— Tbe Bengal Hurkura states that Tien Teh. the new Emperor of China, is a Christian, having been baptized by the late Dr. Gutxlaff. eo the antidote should go along CO to Com. Stockton. This gallant New Jersey man and fearless democrat has by the sentiments expressed in one speech almost alienated himself -from the of whiab. it was lately tfcewght, be was among tbe boldest and most consistent. But few circumstances have occurred in the political agitation of tbe bst three years, that have so completely taken aback both parties, and all creeds, as tbe Trenton speech of Com. Stockton—and yet, we do not know, why men should be surprised at anything "in these degenerate days." We ean imagine the God-like Daniel, with folded anus, and compressed lips, listening, with what degree of wouder must be left to the fancy of him who reads, to the unbounded praise bestowed upon him by a prominent dem ocratic candidate for the Presidency—beariug bis heart pronounced as the only heart ot pure patriotism in the whole land,—hearing this democrat pronounco in favor of New England manufactories, strongly advocating restriction in our present trade, in order that the iron in New Jèrsey might be forced upon the people of the United States—in a word to hear this great democrat boast of his Fath er because he was a Federalist, and declare ip favor of protection. What must have been the feelings of Mr. Webster as he listened to sfleh words falling from the lips of Com. Stockton ? The South some while back, looked up to Stockton as one of the purely national and consistent men in the North ; what is now her amazement to hear from him opinions, whieh are fatal to her interests! to hear from him sentiments which nre sectional and anti-dem ocratic ! In his Trenton speech he said his " political opinions were but loosely on him," and tbe sentiments expressed in the speech carried out the idea admirably. It is well fi* the South that hc^nade this declaration, it is well for the South and better for the tariff of '4G, that he made his Trenton speech, The restrictive policy is gaiuing ground in the North—as what local iuterest does not in it it in - . j _ | bodl " CUt of * Vat,oua J p r 'u c,p le«. «® «®crc'ly wur k |n ß to ! avur a '»cd meustire by which J tb ey become the recipients of bright dollars, aud a measure which is detrimental to every j interest of tbe South and West be Men who seem the very em Northern men are not to be trusted in the matter of the tariff, any more than their pre judices are to be trusted iu the matter of slavery. Pure democratic principles, purely carried out, must administer this Government or disunion is inevitable ; the unconscious and the simple, the discerning aud the learned, may cry there is no danger to the Uuion, we cannot be dissolved, but if one section of the Republic is ever by the force of might to trample upon the rights and privilege's of the other, a separation will take place as truly as the night follows upon the track of day. I The Rights of States respected, and the Gov ernment administered with an eye to the ad vancement of every section, (whieh can only be done, by following the strict letter of the Constitution,) will secure to us and unnum bered generations to follow, the supreme bles sing of living under the rule of a generous Republic. its tle ton, fact iu next [£ 7 ~ The other day a vote was taken iu Congress on the following resolution, offered by Mr. Jackson, of Georgia : Resolved, That we recognize the binding efficacy of the compromise of the constitution, and believe it t^be the intention of the peo ple generally, as we hereby declare it to be ours individually, to abide such compromise, aud to sustain the laws necessary to carry them out—the provision for the delivery of fugi tive slaves and the act of thc last Congress l" r * bat purpose included—and that we depre SUSSlIS braced iu the acta of the last Congress known ! as thc compromise, and of questions generally ®®»n«e*ed with the institution of slavery, as unnecessary, useless, and dangerous. It passed by 101 to 04. Seventy-seven of tho majority were democrats, only twenty four whigs. The following was added, and also voted upon : Resolved, That the series of acts passed during the first session of the thirty-first Congress, known as the compromise, are re garded as a final adjustment and a permanent settlement of the question therein embraced, j and should be maintained and executed as such. It passed by 100 to 65. Sixty-eight of the majority democrats ; only thirty-two whigs. * ., Our readers will remember that, when at the commencement of the session* a demo cratic caucus laid a resolution similar to one of these on thc table, the whigs got fwi it, got up a caucus, smuggled thruugÄ lutiou endorsing the compromises, and came into the House rearing and pitching about the gr^at exploit they had achieved upon thc compromise. It was easy to bring them up standing, aud it has been done. They would feel cheap enough now, if they had any of shame left ; but they will say thc resolu tions iu question had no business in Congress, no how ; that thoy were only asserting their dignity in voting against them—not their op position to the compromise.— Ex. Rumored Release or the Irish State Prisoners.— Tho Dublin Freeman's Jour, nal of the 20th March says : " It is reported that orders have actually been issued from the colonial offioe, or shortly will be issued, directing the immediate release of the Irish exiles, subject to the condition that they are not to return to any part of the British Islands." , % iud of reso sense , Qj^The Houae of Representative* of Penn sylvania on Tuesday, rejected, by a vote of 50 to 46, the " Maine Liqpar Law," which had previously passed the Beast*.

What argument! "Oh scissors!"

We hope they'll have a good time in getting to Baltimore and into the Convention, hut were we the door keeper of that body of national performers, they could not come in. We are in this respect, something like the fastfdeous old gentleman who once upon a time took his dinner at a certain country tavern ; he lfccd as a general thing to have what dirt he vas to cat on one plate, and his vituals on ancther. A greit deal of noise is being made about the "finality of the Compromise," and that the lopes of Presidential aspirants will rise or fill with it—this we consider all thpy wi „ ahmt tbe Compromise being the isssuo in the next contest; wc beg leave to jjff er The 'Compromise may do for a rally j n g cry deceive men into voting a certain ticket but the struggle will most undoubtedly be upon the question of tbe niodifioatiou of the tariff of 'Ï 6 , and before the ides of next fudge—Congiessmcn who are well paid for making bunonnbe speeches, may say what em the of to I November this will be the absorbing theme. Whether this prediction be correct or not, the democratic party should never lose sight of its great priteiplet should never cease to bat tle against specific duties as imposed in the Whig party, as unequal, unjust, and odious taxing the necessary articles of consumption, which are used by the poor, as heavily as the costly and magnificent luxuries of the rich. An Inportant Fact. —Gen. Sam. Hous ton, in a late speech, is said to have stated a fact not generally known, and whieh is of im portance to the families of soldiers who were murdered by order of Sauta Auua at Goliad, iu 1830. It is that the Legislature of Texas several years ago, passed an act giving to tbe next of kin of each soldier who fell in that massacre, sixteen hundred acres of land, to be located on any of the unappropriated lands belonging to the*Statc A Nice Question. —In Maiuc it has been decided that new cider is legal immediately, hut old eider is contraband. The casuists in that State are burily discussing the turning points in the article, a question as important as the debateable one—when does a pig be come a hog ? Some of the New Y'ork papers an nounce that the Democratic Review, for March, will continue tbe war it has already commenced the " Old Fogies," and will have " a terrific article on General Scott, stripping every laurel from his brow, and making the late CoL Duncan the hero of the Mexican war." To Purify Water. —Nine ounoes, says thc Scientific American, of pure, fresh lime, dissolved in forty gallons of water, will purify five hundred and sixty gallons of hard water ; the precipitate is chalks. It takes sixteen hoars for the water to settle, and all thè im parities to fall to the bottom of the vessel which contains the water. This is a useful fact in chemistry, and is not very extensively known. Another Cuban Expedition. —The New ark Advertiser thinks from several vague circumstances, it would appear that another expedition is thought of against Cuba. The Hon. Mr. Fifch whilst'discussing the Prcsi* dential question in the House of Representa tives, yesterday, said: "If another invasion should be made, as it still be. would it be proper that the administration of the Gov crnmenl should be continued in the hands of thofo who now control it ?" We notice also that Caplin H. Robinson, who fought Buena Vista,and subsequently left Cincinnati *o join the Lopez expedition, was arrested on the 2nd inst., by the United States Marshal, and taken Ur Columbus, under suspicion of being connected with another similar expedi tion. at The present administration has dorsed the measures of the compromise, aud staked its fortunes upon them. Two-thirds of the northern whigs have deserted tho Pres ident in his efforts on this subject, in which his chief merit consiste, near a no-party President. The Pocahontas caught fire and entirely consumed on the 16th inst., about 30 miles below Napoleon, Ark. The steaper was loaded irith over two thousand bales cot ton. Ten lire* Joet. en Fillmore ia very Whig Hypooracy. ^ ^ owning of the present session of the ^ <B g PPaf[ the democratic members held a caucus for the purpose of acclccting a speaker and other officers. By a large vUc, they re fused to endorse the Compromise, principally for the reason, that a congressional caucus had authority to erect platforms of principles for the démocratie party. As soon as this action was made public, a small portion of the whig members, with a view to roanufae ;_ little political capital, met together, and after some conflict of opinion, passed lution approving the compromise measures, as a settlement, not of the slavery «pestioo, but of "the subject which they embracedi" The leading organs of the whig party in the South, following the IV asliington Republic, have herald the action of the two caucuses as proof conclusive, that the whig party was per lectly sound on the Union question^ while the democracy were in complete subjection to (toe-soil and abolition influences. The late votes in the liaise of Representative will bring these gentlemen up standing. We have tbe record whieh Viuws the utter falsity of the obarge made against the democracy, and the arrogance presumption and imposttire , of the whigs, in claiming to be the sounder Union party. Un the 5th inst., Mr. ilillyer of Georgia offered the following resolution : " Resolved, Ttiat the series of acts passed during the last session of the 31st Congress, known as the Compromise, are regarded as a ] final adjustment and a permanent settlement j of the questions therein embraced, and should be regarded, maiutuiued and executed us such, An analysis of the vote on this resolution shows the following facts, which wo commend to the consideration of that portion oT the whig pres«, which has been glorifying the whig party for its soundness ou the slavery q «es tion • Sixty-six democrats voted for it, and tiiir against it, being a majority for the resolution of thirty.* Thirty-two whigs voted for it, and rwi n TY-eioht against it, being a majority of four for it. Thiktv-six Northern democrats voted for it and twenty against it being a majority of sixteen for it. Ten Northern whigs voted for it, and twenty-seven against it, being a majority of seventeen on the wrong side. If this record fails to carry conviction to a Southern whig, that the Northern wingof his party is thoroughly aholitionized. ami sold out. sidy and soul, to Seward and his fauatie clique, we would consider it unnecessary to reason further with him on the subject, lie would not believe though one should rise from the dead. Wo trust however, that with thisj vote stating thein in the face, we shall bear no more gammon from the whig press alsmt the d*-votioti of their party to the Union, the Con stitution, and the rights of the South. no at ture a a roso 1 AUDITOR'S OFFICE. ) Jackson, AprilS 1852 1 President ttf the Board of Police : Sir: 1 herewith send you a printed tabic, showing the distributive share of the common I «•bool fund, allotted to each county in the i State, according to the provisions of an act to promote common schools in the several eoun ties in this State, approved March 9, 1850, and an act supplementary thereto, approved March 15. 18. »2. of a now TV-SIX tieJSf M^rionand Trui'e^.Tndeîtb^d^ tion of the act of 1850. made due returns to this office, of the nuinl>er of "free white ehil dren in tbeir respective counties, who were over six and under twenty years of age." In eonformity to the 1 st section of the supple mentary net of 1852, 1 estimated •* the num her of children entitled to schooling," under the act of 1850, for the county of Tunica, "according to the proportion between the number of free white polls and the number of children in " the county of De Soto, which is adjoining connty taking this estimate as a basis of the apportionment to Tunica ; and for the county of Marion, by the same proportion existing in the county of I>errv. Y ou will perceive, by referene.; to the first section of the act of 1850, that it will be ne cessary for the board of police of your countv to levy a school »ax of 25 f«r cent, upon the share allotted to it, before you will be- entitled to receive the share, unless your county is al ready paying a school tax, when it will only be necessary to increase the levy to 25 per cent, on the amount of the distributive share. See second section of the act of 1852. A certificate that such levy exists, from the clerk of the court, under his seal of office, must ae company thu application to draw the couuty'a dividend. Copies of the act of 1850, and the supple ment of 1852, are herewith enclosed to you. By the third section of tbe act of 1850, the boards of police of the several counties, are empowered to appoint a person or persons,! to receive the amount allotted to their coun ties respectively. A certified copy, signed by the clerk, an -1 attested by his seal of office, of the order, authorizing such person to receive the distributive share, will be necessary to show his authority to receive it. By the fourth section of the supplemental act of 1852,^Much person, so appointed, anJ authorised to draw the county share, is re quired to enter iuto bond, Ac., to the president of the board of police. 1 would sug tbe order which muy be made by the police, conferring sucb«autbority, to draw the money, under the third section of the act of 1850. should also include the approval of the bond required to be given ; in order that it tv be seen here, that tbe person appointed d authorized lias complied with the 4 th sec tion of the supplemental act, aud hence is really entitled to receive the money. It might occur that one would be appointed who would not execute the bond required, and on produ cing a certified copy of his order ot appoint ment, claim the distributive share of the county, and perhaps, be legally entitled to re ceive it.—These two sections refer in terms to the Treasuer only, but are equally applicable to this department. It was impossible to prepare the table, Ac., at an earlier day. # In the calculation which has beçn made, I have included the fifty thousand dollars, not due until the first of May. 1852, as well as the two hundred thousand dollars set apart in 1850 and the fifty thousand dollars set apart in 1851. I haye done so. supposing that none of tho counties would be ready to draw their shares until the first of May, proximo, aud to avert the necessity of two* apportion ments. The dividend of each child, entitled to schooling under the act of 1850, amounts to three dollars, twenty eight oentf seven mills, and a fraction of a mill ; to which fraction! referenoe was had in tbe calculation An ap^ ■proximation to entire accuracy, sufficiently close for all practical purposes, has been tained. The small turn which remained to be distributed after tbe dividends were ascer tained, on this basis, amounting to 12 oenta, was distributed to the oounties having the lar gest fraction of a mill. a an . st that rd of .'in I have taken the liberty to accompany report to you of tbe amount allotted to county, irith this circular, supposing the ex planations contained in it would conduce to «it infliction, and facilitate the transaction» tbe application to my your of a of , çj 10ctaw L, , ç uV j nKtün .
