elapsed since the election took place in this

the Loco-Foco papers, we Bhould have con

Inown to render it certain that tho Whigs

This ignorant, degraded and fanatical sect,
with Joo Smith at its head, is now openly
arrayed in hostility against the laws of Mis

have sent armed men through one or two of
the counties, who' compelled tho inhabitants
to sign a written obligation that they w il'
not teke tides against them, nor assist the
Slate in enforcing law and order. Under
these ciicianManCi.? ihe District Judge was
called upon to itsue warrants for the appro,

issued. The writ for tho apprehension o
Joe Smith, their nronhct. leader, law-givci '

placed in the hands of the Shcriffof Daviess

100 armed men, who opposed the process of

GREAT WHIG MEETING.
At a meeting of u laro number of tho
citizens of Hinds county, at tho court house
in Raymond, on Monday, the first day of Oc
tober, ngrecably to adjournment, Major
Joii B. Ikvton was called to tho chair,and
A. L. Dab.xey, esq. appointed secretary.
The following resolutions were presented
for consideration by Charles Hill, and passed
by overwhelming majorities:
1. Resolved, That we consider the course
of the present administration of the general
government, from its commencement to this
time, as totally at war with the interests of
the country as designed to perpetuate pow
er in the hands of the ascertained minority,
in disregard of the known interests and
wishes of the great mass of the Americas
2. Resolved, That the effort now strenu
ously mad by (lie party in power to prop
their sinking fortunes by a pretended union
of sentiment with the state rights party, is
not only an absurd attempt to reconcile dis
similar principles, but to bo successful, will
require of tho state rights party a sacrifice
of political consistency.
3. Resolved, That a sound currency is
an essential part of commercial prosperity;
and that the sub-treasury, as detailed in con
gress by those in the confidence of tho pres
ident, docs not propose to furnish one, eith
cr directly or by remote consequence; but,
on the contrary, is directly ruinous in its uc
tiou to any institution that mizht be availa
ble for that purpose, and obviously calculaJ
tcJ to augment tho already overgrown pat
ronage ot tho executive.
4. Resolve!, That no effectual means of
securinj? u sound currency for tho whole
country has not vet been devised, except a
National Rank; ami, viewing the consti
tutional noes-lion as settled, so far as it can
be settled by authority, bv the recognition
of all the de p irtmen a of the government,
from the presidency of General Washington
to tint of General Jackson, inclusive, and
the acq '.iescenco of the people duiing the
whole pernd, we do not hesitate to give it
our cordial and utnjualifed preference to any
experiment made or recommended by the
democratic p.irty or its leader.
5. Resolved That wo recommend to
each county in the stato to send as many
delegates as it has members in the house- of
representatives, to constitute a stato con
vention, to meet in Jackson on tho fourth
Monday in January next, for the purpose of
nominating candidates for state oliices. nnd
to take all necessary measures for establish
ing the ascendancy of correct principles in
0. Resolved, That four persons bo ap
pointed to represent this county in said con
vention. 7. Resohed, That inasmuch as our sena
tor, Colonel T. B. J. Hadley, has recently
formed a coalition with a party notoriously
in a small minority in tins county, and pro
fessing principles repudiated by the great
majority of his constituents, he cannot long
er represent our wishes truly and faithfully
8. llesolred. That colonel Hadley bo re
quested to resign; and that a committee of
three in each election precinct he appointed
by the chairman to frame tho request, and
procure signatures thereto, and that they
constituto a permanent corresponding com
mittee, with power to add to their number,
and fill vacancies occurripg therein.
9. Resolved, That a committee of three
bo appointed to correspond with the honora
ble Henry Clay, on topics in which the
south has deep interest, and to publish the
samo for tho information of the people.
Gen.Cowles Meade, A. R.Johnson, D.
C. Briggs and A. L. Dabney, were appoint
ed under the sixth resolution.

To the Editor of the Commercial Bulletin.
I have read with attention the report of
tho Commissioners on the Brandon Bank,
and beg leave to submit tho following ob
servations on soma of tho extraordinary
statements sent forth in that document,
The report says, tho Bank has advico of
the sale of cn!y 0,100 bales (out of 00,000
shipped) at 71 J per lb, and if the balance
sells for tho samo rato it will produce $50
per bale; which, with 17 per cent they es
timate ns premium on exchange, will bo
equal to $58 50 per bale, and will leave a
balance, to bo-realized by tho bank, over
and above the advance already received by
them, of upwards of 2,200,000!! Now eve
ry commercial man knows, that the price of
cotton at Liverpool, and tiic depressed shu
afion and gloomy state of the market , was
such, that tho prospect is, their unsold cotton
would not nett moro than the amount of the
advances already received by them, and
that consequently the whole of thia balance
of 2,200,000 dollars is a perfect fiction!
Yet, in the face ot such notorious facts con
nected with the value of cotton at Liver
pool, the report with perfect coolness assert.",
"tho prospect is favorablo for such a rc-
su!i;,M.! no doubt many credulous holders of
the notes of this bank, are relying upon
this fond as a source for payment, but tiicy
mnv rest assured that it will vanish into
"thm-nir," when the sales are closed and
final accounts rendered.
It strikes me als-o, as a very curious cir-
cumsianrc, inaisomo wccks alter too stup
ing season had closed at Mobile, the bank
should have no advice of any portion of their
cotton at that port having been shipped, nnd
that all the iniorm ition in iho report on that
point, is tho verbal declaration of tho presi
dent, that ho "(. no doubt" 0000 bales
have been shipped for tho bank from that
From oil I have heard and seen on the
subject, both in Mississippi and here, I ven
ture to assert
1st. That the bank has not shipped
more than 500 bales from Mobile, instead of
2d. That her aggregate shipments do
not exceed 45 to 47,000 bales, instead of
3d. That at the dato of the report, the
bank had advices of much moro extensive
sales than 0,400 bales, and at prices great
ly below 71 d per lb.
4th. That instead -efroalizing $2,200,
000 as abalanco when the sales ;aro closed,
she will not receive, at tho extent, more
than the odd 200,000.
5th. That the avcrngo nett proceeds of
all tho cotton shipped lor her account to
Liverpool, will, in no event, exceed $50 per
bale; and will probably not moro than cover
the actual advance of $30 already received
If tho commissioners who have signed the
above report, are disposed to deny the prc-
ccdiug positions, I would recommend them
to call upon tho bank fur their Liverpool
letters up to 15th July, and their corres
pondence to 15th August, with their agents
in New Orleans and Mobile, ull of which
must have been received by tho bank previ
ous to tho date of the report, anJ then see if
those letters will not fully contirm the as
sertion I have made.
Tho w hole report, both as to facts and in
ferences, I consider as a gross deception on
tho public, and the general conduct of that
bank since the suspension of specie pay
ments, as ii judicious und unjustifiable in the
highest decree; and such as requires the
severest investigation on the part of the Leg
islature of Mississippi both in justice to
themselves ana to the nrneral credit of th3
Stato and her banking institutions.'

ADMISSION OF FLORIDA.
It appears by (ho, late census of Florida,
that she contains about 48,000 soul, near
ly half of w hom are slaves. Slaves are rec
koned as three-fifths of the same number of
whites, and hence Florida lacks only about
8,500 of t he number necessary for her ad
mission into the Union. Tho abolitionists,
to be in season, are already busily at work
in organizing an opposition to her admission
as a Slave Stato. Thoy are flushed with
the full hope of victory, for, remembering
tho history of tho Missouri question, thev
count confidently upon ihe co operation of
the President of the United States. The
New York Journal of Commerce, f peaking
of their active movements in reference to
"So it scorns we aro preparing for anoth
er 'Missouri question.' Should the aboli
tionists succeed in their efforts, we may bid
farewell to the Union ; for it never will sur
vive the refusal by Congress to admit Flori
da into tho number of tho States, on the
ground that its "Constitution tolerates slavo
ry." That may bo set down ascertain.
Our impression is, however, that a much less
proportion of tho members of Congress will
give their votes against tho admission of
Florida than were found in tho negative on
the question of admitting Missouri into the
Union. The latter, prior to its admission,
was a 'neutral ground," lying partly North,
and partly South of the Ohio, w hile Florida
from its geographical position, belongs ns
mush to the slave-holding region as Maine
does to tho non slavo-holding. Upon the

already been held in some of tho States, will

We like the spirit of tho comments of tho
Mobile Advertiser. They arc as follows:

great pacificator, the same man who stool

Increase of Poinilatioifin Missouri.-
Some idea may be .formed of the immense
increase of tho population of this State, by
comparing the results of tho late election
with the number of votes polled two years
ago. Jn ltidb, Missouri polled for Govern
or, 27,372 votes, nnd for Congress an aver
age vote of 21,5(51. In 1S3S, she polled for
Congress an average vote of 40,23(1, thus
showing an increase within two vcars over
, tho votes cast fir Governor, of 12,SS1, nnd
over the voto given for Congress of 11,073.
If by this, we make tho usual estimate, al
lowing one voto to every six ijouls, it shows
an increase in our population, within two
years, of 01,152. The result of the election
in lS.'lO compared with tho census of that
year, showed that tho number of votes given
stood as one voter to every ten souls; by this
we have an increase of population within
two years of 150,1)20 souls, or a population
of 402,500. Tho w holo population of Alis
