SATURDAY, JAN. 10, IS1G O. C. DKASE jfeFF. M. ORAYItILL Edilurs. The MUs'mippian eaxac to us last week, in our humble judgment, very much inproved. Although not eo largo as it lias been, yet it con tains ns much or more reading matter, nnd far more neat than it e ver has hem. We can now coidiaily recommend it to our friends as one- of the btst journals in the .State and richly meriting the patronage of the Democratic par- TI'C Tariir. Mercury fiom every ipjaiter brings intelii genccof the deep interest which pervades the country upon the subject of the tariff. V'ho has not noticed the gradual encroachment of protec tion upon the rights of agricultural laboi? Pub lic news has proclaimed it aloud -the South has heard it with alarm. The gabbling pro tectionists of the North mock the prosperity of our southern farmers by tpuntinglv holding up to the public rye, the red act J price of goods nnd wondering nt our ignorance. Their parti sans of the South repeat, '-ignorance" and de ceitfully contend that putting on, means taking oil', and if they could, to gain sumo -party did, they'd send away the iieopb) ep;i. u J, a el daN ic ed. Do they think the people ate always wil ling to be deceived 1 We are stupid- -thc-y are iiisfi. Our arguments and explanations are unlearned, nt which they affectedly laugh, save a few, and thry gaze stupidly in the ficc of those who speak under the peculiar influence of the spirit a, not whiskey we tins'.. of tin; true whig revealed faith, and such vainly try to uiibr" stand, but fail, lint one se nte nce they mechan ically learn, like babbling p;i riots to repe at with words of supposed lea rm d It nirlli. ''High pro tective duties, upon article s of domestic manu facture, in proportion to the advance of dutii s, reduce tin ir price to the consumer, nn I there, fore it is to the interest of the South to encour age the protection of American industry." ''Too much learning m ikes a man mad." My the time some of our plain unsophisticated farmers could comprehend the syldgi.-tic truth of the sibovr argument, we opine their pulse of nature would irrei-uliuly bent. Faithful mi fs tigers these, who know so much about the permanent iiiti list of man. and prove so much by so short a speech. In a fpeechus &hort as tl.eiis, we will n ply and have the two to plain and suople truth. Dutiis for prntiction advance thi! iKt r st of the m niiiilirtiin is an 1 are di tii nn ntal t the prosperity of consumers. I'roof the former beg of Congress pri ticiien and the la'.ter di ny the pow r of the govt rnir.etit to give it or the riht of the farmer to ask it. Our readers will naturally conclude, that none will ask for that which will e!o them in juryat least whm thry umierMand the ir tine interest. I'pon the other hand we would not withhold that the f iving of w l.ich would make conceal them, for whate ver pretext tj employ as an apology for our conduct the true secret will cventually.to persons who reason logically, uncover itself. But on the other hand shouid the condemnation of an adversary be disinterest, ed and for the public interest there is scarcely one person in ten thousand who will give us credit for so much public honesty hence the result in both cases is identical. Holding them up many point of view the differences of the Union and Journal arc sadly to be deplored be cause it appears to the people that each would pull the other down to rise1 instead. Geology. We concur in opinion with the "Reformer," that a State Geologist ought to bo appointed. The source of agricultural wealth in tin's State, can never bj properly developed until the ejoalities of our various soils are as certain''! and explained to those persons from whom all our social, political, and imtion-il wealth isd rived.

Mississippi is el s;i;jr,l to be one of the wealth iest States of ibis Union, nnhss she is crippled by the unwise policy of her citizens. The Jiiuxjins of her Legislature upon the subjects of Ranking and charter, d monopolies, threw back her agricultural developments tv tity years. lit r condition was like the bloated to pers first an artificial p!umpius3 and apparent lieahhfuiVss next a rrotrubrranco of feature. i ' extraordinarily excited, and then the pal", bltoaeel, dropsical rotundity of (ho last stages e f human suffering, from an ill-spent dissipated life. Tappin g, was the hazardous but only remedy. The cpoiatiem has proved successful, and she is again sound and healthy. If in fu ture she lions to the soil as toe only true source of her heiltli and prosperity, she will, tre long, occupy a proud position among her s'steis.

Let all of his friends in the Legislature dc- ermine to stand by hirn, and not sutler, them selves to be deceived by whims ancifscrtions of others, and when they return home to their constituents, they will receive the highest re ward which a free people can give their pub' lie servants that of their contined confidence.

The Augsburg Gazette slaUs that Russia has lost during the compaien of this years, jin the Caucasus, 3 General Olllcers, 0 Colonels and Lieutenant Colonels, 20 Staff officers, 200 of ficers, of various grade, and from 10,000 to 12, 000 soldiers.

It was found neccsary to abandon all the pens which h id been jraiucd with very "treat sacrifices, and in no part has a gai risen been left. AMERICAN WOMEN. M. do Tocrpieviilo, speaking of American women says; "As for myself, I do not hesitate to avr.w, that, although the women of the United Statis arc confined within the narrow ciiclc ofdoims tic, hie, in 1 their situations are, in some re spects, of extreme dep. mlenee, I bnve no where s '( ti women occupying a lol'ikr position; nnd if 1 were asked, now I am drawing to a close of this work, in which I have spok. n efso many things dene by the Americans, to what thesiii gular prosperity and "rowing strength of that entile ou,ht to be attributed, I should n ply to l ';c s:pt rivi ify i f their vnmrn.'"

'd-'nstcr, faster! your horses creep liko snails, drive for your life!'' cried the im particnt Morley, as the noble animals he so slandered clashed nion tho pebbly turn pike road, while ihe sparkles flew from their iron hoofs like a flight of fire flics. The postillion, with voice and whip put thcrn to the top of their speed ; and the chaise, in its rapid course;, left behind it a trail of lidit, as though the wheels had been ignited. A high and steep hill in front, at length, enforced a more moderate sail, when Mor ley, ns if struck by a sudden recollection, turned his head towards his companion, a lovely young female, who, pale silent and motionless-, reclined on his shiulders. "Kate, my love," said Morley, tenderly, "I fear tins wiil prove too much for your delicate frame." There was no reply. Moley leaned his face towards hers, and by the moonbeams, saw that her features were fixed, her open eyes razing1 on vacancy, while the fears, which had recently streamed from them, seemed congenial upon her bloodless cheeks. "God of heaven!" exclaimed Morley, "what means this! Kate, beloved, adored! do you not hear me? will you not speak to me to Morley, your Morley. 1 lie name ho uttered like a charm, dis solved the spell that bound hor. A Ion? drawn sigh, as if struggling from a break ing heart, escaped her cold ouivennar lips; a fresh fountain of tears hurst forth; nnd witli nn hysteric sob, she. fell upon the bo som of her lover. Tho alarmed, but en raptured Morley folded her in his arms, anelhent to kiVs away her tears when with a suebbn start, she disengaged herself from as embrace, atjd, drawing back, she look wildly and eargerly in his face. 'Morley," said she. in a voice of thrilling tone, "do vcu love me!" ''Dearest, best Kate " he replied, "dovou, can vou doubt it?" 'Do von love me, Morlev." she repeat ed with increased earnestness. 'Truly devoted madly!" cried Jlor- cy, on his Knees. "Uy the heavens that is idii'mutr over ns " '.No more oaths enousli of prosfe,ta- tions.

" , "Where is he? is lie alive let me set him is he well?" shrieked Kate, as she rusiieel in the Imusc of her father. "For whom ido you enquire, madam, w coldly asked tle female she addressed, the maiden sister ef Kate's father. "Aunt, dear aunt, do not speak to me thus! I am not what you think me.

Follow me your father fc iiot well!" "Quick! before it is too late!" And the distracted girl rushed into the room, and knelt at her father's side. "Father, do not avert your face! Father I am your own Kate; I am restored to you as I left you! By the vears of love that have passed between us, forgive the folly the offence the crime ofa moment! By the memory of my mother" "Cense, girl! cease!" said the old matr, endeavoring, through tho weakness of age and infirmity, and the workings or agoniz ed feelings, to be firm; "forbear, and answer me truly, is this gentleman your husband?" Kate was about to reply, but Morley stepped forward. "I am not," said Morley, "blessed with that lady's hand; she has refused it, until it is given with your sanc tion; and without that sanction, clearly as I lovo her, and hopeless as I may be of your consent, I will never hereafter ask it." "Do you pledge your word to this, young man?" "My sacred word, as a rmn of honor. I may have inherited your hate, but I'll not deserve it!" "Children, you have subdued me!" ex claimed the father. "Morely, my daugh ter is youis!" Morely seized the old man's hand, scarcely believing the scene before biro to im leai. - "My father!" said the weeping Kate, on her knees, her arm around his neck, her innocent cheek pressed to his. The gooel aunt partook e f the general joy, and even Kate's favorite dog seemed to thank her father fir his kindness to his d?ar mistress. The happy fither sat with an arm around his daughter's waist, and, as he pressed her lover's hand, he said "H hold in all this the goodness of Gcd! lMiold the blessings that follow the per formance of our duties. Your father, young gentleman, before you saw the light of heaven, had entailed my hate upon all his oa ring. I had nourished this bitter leolmg even against you, who had never off-nded me, and whom every one else loves. This very day tho cherished hos tility of years had given way before mr ib sire to secure my daughter's happiness. I felt that ago was crcor.ingon me, and but the nnniing of this blessed day, I had re tolvi 1 over this holy book lo prove mjr contrition for my sinful harboring of hatred towards my fellow creatures by uniting you, my children, in marriage. The ti dings of my daughters's elopement scatter ed to the winds all my better thoughts; and revived my worst iu tenfold strength. I felt, at least tlnught so, the approach of my malady to a region w here it would soon prove fatal. No time was to be lost; my will was hastily drawn out, I bequeathed my beggared daughter, but the father's curse It would hive been signed tin's night, for over this book I had taken art rath never to f rgive her who could aban don her father." "Oh my father!" interrupted Kate, to whom tho horrible images of her trance returned; "in pity cease, my dear father."
