bath in March next, ly the ltev. Duncan A.

The Election for Assessor of Jasper county,
is ordered to be held on the first Monday and

Senatorial Election.
The Senatorial election is ever, and General
HENRY STUART FOOTE is elect, d, to
the Senate of the United Stat-s for six years,
his term beginning on the 4th of March, IS 17.
He received ninety-three votes, including every
democratic vote in the legislature, we believe.
The Hon. JOSEPH W. CHALMERS,
the present senator, is elected to fill the unex
pired term, of the Hon. Robert J. Walker. Mr.
Chalmers received ninety-six votestwo or
three votes over the Democratic strencdi.
We will not indulge in a single feeling of
triumph, but merely say here, that those gentle
men are high among those of Mississippi's dis
tinguished sons, whom she delights to honor.
Reformer, Jan. 10.
Well, we are content, if we did not get our
first we did our second choice, for U. S. Sena
tor. Gen. Foote is a host of himself, and will
do the State infinite credit in the Senate of the
U. S. Foote and Speight will guard securely
the rights of Mississippi, and until the former
enters upon Lis term of office, our rights could
not be in better hands than Mr. Chalmers. The
last named gentleman is an accomplished scho
lar and a faithful exponent of democratic doc
trines. Governor's Message. We have received
the Governor's message toa late to publish it.
It is a worthy public document, and when we
are enabled next week to present it to our friends
we trust it will receive an attentive considera
tion. We hare no additional news from Washing
ton of importance. The Lill lor the proti cticn
of American citizt ns in Orecon v. ill certainly

The Hon. James II. Gholson, formerly a
member of Congress, now cne of the Judges of
the Circuit Court of Virginia, arrived here on
Friday last, in fine health. He designs visit
ing Texas before he returns to Virginia.
Col. John J. McRae. We have received
information that this gentleman's name is like
ly to get beforo the Legislature for a seat in
the Senate of the United States. At least, our
informant states, that a petition is on foot in
Clark county, which contemplates the instruc
tion of Judge Moody to vote for Col. M'Raeto
fill that distinguished station. It has neither
astonished nor surprised us, for in these days
stranger things transpiro every now and then.
We like the Col., personally, will enough, and
admire his talents, which we have no hi silanry
in Baying, is something above mediocrity. Ibit
all things considered, the Senate of the U. S.
is no place for him.
We take pleasure in calling the attention of
oar readers to the card of Messrs. McDugalJ
& Buckner. Our young friend Buckner, it
will be seen, has removed to Hillsboro, Scott
county, where he will, we have no doubt, rea
lize the encouragement in the practice of his
profession, which his talents merit. The M.ijor

THE LEGISLATURE
Both houses of the Mississippi legislature
convened in the capitol yesterday, nt 11
o'clock. In the Senate, after eight ballot
ing, the Hon. George T. Swann, of
Rankin, was elected President, and on the
first ballot, Mr. Wilcox was re-elected
Secretary. Mr. Hudson was elected Door
keeper on the tccond balloting.
In the House, the 1 1. in. James Wiiit
fikld, of Lowndes, was elected Speaker
on the first ballot, and on the second ballot
ing, Mr. J. D. MoNTiiOMi.itv, of Lowndes,
was elected Clerk. E.S. Parish was elec
ted Door-keeper.
Both houses have elected able and ex
perienced presiding officers, whose prompt
ness and efficiency will promote the active
despatch of business. It is hardly neces
sary to add, that both aresteriingdetnocrats,
enjoying the confidence of their constitu
ency and the party at large in the Shite.

Extract from a private letter, from a brother
to a distant sister.
If is too often the case, when friends are first
separated, their attachments give activity to cor
respondence and lengthy declarations of un
ceasing remembrance and love. But as time
speeds along on iron wings, the intervals be
tween their letters grow longer and longer, un
til at last they terminate. Still their minds turn
now and then to their once loved coirtsron
dent, and every tiuio wilhfredidetennina'.ioa to
renew their intellectual intercourse. The time
comes when, notwithstanding the oft repented
declarations of devotion, theyscarccly think of
their absent friend at all, and if they do, it is not
with that swett thought of ties that never break,
nud attachments that never end.
Am I a stranger, dear Caroline, that you
rcmemder me no more ?or have I i'.iil an abid
ing place in your alfectioi)s ? A sister's leve
bkss'd is ho who ibs'-ms it thrice Messed is
he who enjoys it. Thetho.ight that I have too
long slighted you, make? me. tremble an 1 doubt
my iititity to re s-euro your confidence. A
sister Low ver, who h;:s always excused my
ftuits and piaistd my fc.v virtues, will not now,
I am persuaded, disclaim a ripentnnt and re
turning brother. Yes, I nin sure, you will be,
to me still the confiding and forgiving spirit
that ministered to me so charitably in times
past Times, happy to you and inc.
I long once more to imbrace vou. Could
I but again sec you and your dear little chil
dren, my heart would bop with gladness. But
shall I ever see you and them again? Hea
ven appoint it Should I not, Providence bo
with you and them and bless you. Itseeais
that, if you and Mr. I), would move near me,
half of my bitterist trials would disapptar.
Your prattling buhes, tor whom I feel a deep
interest, would beguile the tedium of my leisure
hours and add a thousand little pleasures to a
life that continues, scarcely for nn object Tru
ly I love little cl.ilJu n, Lr cause I know their
love is spent-tin-iius and w ithout inter, ft. An l
if I love all, how much more should I love
yours, in whose veins kindred blood gives them
life. An l little J , w ho I hear is like me,
I would be di lighted, could I see him and teach
Lis little tongue to lisp the name of uncle.
The hour is late, yit I have not tjiiit my of
fice thoughts of you Lave oppressed my min i
for the last six hours. Something whispers
nr I shall never see you again, and prrhap
this it the List crmmunication ycu will ever
n-c( ive fn in your l i other, v. ho loves you with
ali of a brother's love. Why this distracting
thought I ho o-.v n. t My Lei It Ii is much im

years. Fortune is more kind to me than usual
although in tome things she Las always I ten
kind to me but Lrr admonitions have been
bem neglected, and I have abt:s'd her favors.
Foolishly I have spint her money, and spurned
her friendly salutations. Like the neglected
and abued wife, whose love is pure as enow,
and as lasticg as life, the still turns upon mc
with inviting smiPfl, and with outspread arms
to reclaim me as her own. Some persons are
too much the slaves of fortune. Iam her pro

It is su-Iosed that when the President's
xncssagi will have conveyed the intelli
gence that Mr. Polk, pursuing the course
of former administrations, had offered the
the compromise, puolic opinion in Eng

Wc have read with regret a Washington
letter inthe Vicksburg Smti.nl of the '.)a
inst., representing that the Secretory oftlm
Treasury is busily engaged in attempting
to control the election of a U. S. Senator
from this Sate. We give no credit to the
statement. Were Mr. Walker the arch
intriguer he is represented to be, be would
not be so simple as to undertake such a
game. We trust and believe the Ilepre
sentativesof the people have come together
with fixed resolutions to act the parts ex
pected of them by their constituency The
democracy here have before them bright
examples of harmonious action in other

A J Pi WISH SYNAGUtUIi:.
Being Saturday, and never having wit
nessed the ceremonies of the Jews in their
religious worship, I to-day took advantage
of the opportunity to gratify my curiosity.
In company with one who was also n stran
ger, 1 walked to the synagogue on Dim
street. The first thing'which we encoun
tered was a iule, that the men only should
enter on the lower floor, and the women go
into t!ip rnlleries. The person nt the door
very ilitely a-kid me to walk in, pointed
out a seal, and to'd mo to put on my licit
All the men had their inns on, noU-xcept-ing
the minister and his asistants; and the
former was distinguished by a hat, the rim
of which was turned up with a loop nt each
side; he wore a black, like our Christian
clergymen, and a white cravat; be was
light complexioned, large featured, with a
large sharp nose, and had, altogether, the
most intellectual face of any in the assem
bly. On u raised plattbrui ni the centre,
surrounded by a heavy mahogany railing,
on each coi n-r of which was an immense
catitllt; in a brass caudh'-stielc, stood at the
desk the minister and three assistants and
one other was sitting on a bench behind
them; one was reading wh-it np;-can d to
