We consider Mr. Lunar one ot tbe foremost meu iu tbe luited States senate with no superiors and few equals in tbe State of Mis sissippi in Mint of intelligence and ability yet with all this enlighten ment ou bis part we have had oc casion to differ with him very ma terially iu at least two instances since he has been iu tbe senate. His vote upon the silver bill was iu direct, ami expressed, opposition to the wishes of his constituent, and had some meu we know of been in bis place they would rather have resigned their seats tb.-.n to have at a vote against tbe in i strnctioiis ot their State senate ; jet Mr. Lunar Haunted these iu strnetioiis in the very face of his people, and then cast his vote con trary to their w isbes. Some, in de fending Mr. k Li mar, take the posi tion that the State senate had no right to instruct him upon that subject, but we do not propose to discuss that issue heiej the fact "of his being instructed Is suflicient evftleuce of the wishes of the'peo pie upon the issue then before con gress. The DEMOTRAT-rtiU did not ex press an opii '.oil npou the action of Mr. T..itnar in voting with the re publicans ou the bill to review the Kellogg case, but merely published a paragraph showing how he voted upon that bill. While we know that Kellogg has no more riht to ii seat in the United States senate than the writer of this article, yet we do not censure those democrats w ho voted to let the matter remaiu ms it is, so longns the senate had decided the case over two yeais ago iu giving Kellogg the seat We think that iu opening this case a dangerous precedent would be established, which might iu some future day lesult disastrously to the democratic party, and no doubt Senior Lamar took this view of the case tiinl did not care to give the republicans an opportunity to re taliate upon the democrats in the next congress. We arc far from attempting to inaugurate any movement which would drive Col. Lamar out of the public service, or w hich wou'd pre judice the people of this State tins! him, but he is a public man and we cousider we are justifiable in criticising his public acts, and shall not hesitate to condemn w hen we have a just cause. Llis vote to retire Grant was not iu accord with the wishes of the democratic party, nor the will of the people of Mississippi, and we believe Mr. Lamar knew it when he so voted. Why then did ho place himself on record aloug side the republicans and outside of the democratic ranks t Ho certainly does not think Grant will ever be elected ruesidcut of the United States again ) and surely has no fears of atother reign ot Grautisui. Such a calamity docB not seem ut all probable after the great defeat at Chicago last year, and why he should wish to place Grant upon the pension list of tbe government seeiua a little strange to us. Graut is not in tho way of the democratic party in the least, nnd wo arc in favor of our democratic congress men letting the Grat todys take carof Grant as best thoy may without any democratic aid.

The idcii ot placing Grant on the retired list of army ,flicers simply f'or the purpose of getting bii. out of politics is n strange pohiuim for a democrat to hkc. What diller ence Iocs it make to the demo ratic party whether Grant aspires to bo president of the United States or not f What effect upon the party could Grant's candidacy have, an how f It is perfectly im material to the great democratic masses how often he isa candidate. Ucally we believe it would be to our interest to have him nominated by the republican party, for be would be the easiest man in that party to defeat. We ran understand why certain republicans wish to place Grant ou the retired list of army officers, as he is iu the way of certain aspir ants to the presidency, and they think by retiring him he would be out of their way thus they are willing to place hi in upon a salary to be paid by the tax-payers of the North and South simply to get him out of their way. Grant will never again be presi dent of the Uniled States, so the C'omef may rest easy upon that point, aud not lose any sleep by the ghost ot Grant rising np before its edi'or nnd the White House. liut we believe Col. Lamar voted for the bill retiring Giant, and this may account for the words of alarm by the C'owicf. THE APP0ET10MENT.

Raymond O'o- setle. So far as the voice of tbe Major of Pascugoula is concerned he would respectfully demur from the proposition of the Major of Kay inoiid iu I lie apportionment tf th senate. Wealth should have noth ing to do with re presentiitifiu iu State legislatures, but population should govern. A poor man's vote counts as much as the wealthy man's, and hence representation should be based ou population and uot wealth. Iu the formation of the bouse of representatives we agree with the Major of Raymond, and would bo willing to let the apportionment be made upou that basis.

LYight and earl vesterday morn ing Conductor Wm. Stout aud En gineer Joseph Mt-uo, of tbe Louis ville aud Nashville railroad, with an eugine and six empty baggage ears, started out to tb relief of the Sunday 1 o'clock a.m. local freight train of twenty two cars, watei wrecked at the sixteen utile post. Superintendent of repairs Ameri can Uuion Telegraph Company, F. S. Uur ou, and a Timet' representa tive accompanied tbe expedition. At the junction of the Louisville and Nashville railioaa with the Poutcbartraiti road, ou Elysiau Fields street, tbe first indications of high water were mauifest. South ot the railroad, along Elysiau Fields street, streets aud ban quettes and fields ware covered alike aitb water, tho dreary waste broken here and there by desolate looking houses tottering on their foundations with every gust of wind. Nearing the seveo-niile post the dauger signal, a red flag held aloft by a man on tbe track, quickly brought the train to a stop, when Section Master Georce Schubert tiiiiiiit.il ulkiMnl unit f.ti1 a tst. .it tlie watera rava!rM i,cad. He had walked the track until 2 o'clock that morning, w hen his vig Unvt! WHS awarded by the discov- cry of three bad breaks near the , , i . r 11 mile post bevondJ.ee station, lk ,,mH,ou mliusted toried.t's on the track aud pushed ahead for! Michoo to telegrapb a warn; g, out failing to reu-h that point vias re Mining 10 inecity our hand-car to give the intelligence. Mr. fschn bert reported the water still rising under the pressure of the strong easterly wind, which still pre vailed. Conductor Stout did not attempt to conceal his annoyance at the news, as he hoped to save some of the cargo or the wrecked tram. However, detcrmiued to go as tar as he could, he pushed ahead slow, ly toward Lee station. Nearing tho station the first evi dences of the encroachment of the water was apparent. At Lee station the water was within a foot of the flooring of the section houses which is built on a high spot three L-et above ground. Hoarding the hand can, and pro pelled by the lusty stroke of the section hands, the conductor, en "infer, superintendent of repairs, section Piaster and reporter pro ceeded along the road. Here aud there was seen small bouses strip ped ot everything portable of value nnd only known to have been ten anted by the wet, bedraggled chickens perched on the roofs, cackling forlh their terror at the flood beneath, and the birds of car rion skimming throngb the air above dogs, loath to leave their homes, dismally howled their dis tress, while in one bouse in partic ular an aged white horse stood o i'.h distended eyes, watching the water as it slow ly rose abont his legs. At the ten and three quarter mile post the road-bed of the track for twenty feet was gone, and through the opening the water rushed like a mill-race, as if striv ing to release the buoyant cross ties, which still lemained fasteued to the track. To the right or east Bide of the track, as far as tbe eye could reach, the water w as bauked up to the level ot the rail, filtering through the river sand road-bed to find its level on tbe west Bide of the track. The band-car was eased over the break, and tor a quarter of a milt was slowly pushed ahead. There, at the 11-mile post, two breaks of GO aud 100 feet each, separated only by a strip of tbe road-bed were found. At tbe latter break the weight of the rails sunk tbe track below tbe water, which dashed over at a furious rate. One by one the party picked their way across the trembling structure, ex pecting every moment to have a cross tie yield beneath their weight. Fortunately no such ac cident occurred, and once again all hands stood above the water and proceeded on their way, only to find a greater break beyond. " It's that way all along the prai rie, sir," reported the section mas ter, and reluctantly tbe party re traced their steps to the band-car and thence back by train to tho city, without accomplishing the ob ject of their journey. Both Conductor Stout and Eu giueer Meno rejiort that that por tiou of the track swept away this Bide of Michou's was the best along tbe road, always admitting of good time. The valuable borso previously re ported as being in one of tlie over turned freight cars Conductor Stout says may survive, as ho pro vided for having him ted. If the horse was extricated, from the car he would drown, as there is no foothold iu that part tor cither man or beast to land.

This section of thirty three miles embraces Touluie, Grand Plain, Lookout, Kigolcts, Lake Catherine, Cbet Meutenr, Miction aud Lee, with only here aud there strips of road bed, not over a few feet in length, keeping the track for the most part in po sition. Until 5 o'clock last evening tbe wires down between here nnd the Kigolcts, when Superintendent ot Repairs McU raw, of tbe Western Union telegraph company, traced the break iu the circuit to a point between Chef Menteur and Lake Catheriue, and with the assistance of the superintendent of brid sea 1 ot the Louisville and Nashville road managed to re erect the poles and place tbe line in working order. Later iu the night communica tion was established with Bay St. Louis, but as the wires were in some places uuder water, the mes sages were disconnected, and only intelligible through a kuowledge of the text. The superintendent of tbe bridges, who tramped from Grand Wain hither, arriving here last night by hand car from Leo sta tion, veii ties the condition of the road.
