Hississippians in ‘
Mexican War/
__ J
Director Rowland Has Found
Historicl Documents.
(•pecial)—The official report of
the part taken by the Mississippi
troops in the battles of Buena
Vista and Monterey during the
Mexican War, iu the handwriting
of Col. Jefferson Davis, who com
manded the First Mississippi
tit Alif nrt U f 11 1 U A tvtAni Aiinlxl a

occasions, as well as the reports
of Col. Davis’ officers, were found
today by the director among the
State’s archieves. Few more in
teresting historical documents
have been unearthed.
Col. Davis thus describes the
famous V-shaped formation which
contributed so largely to the fate
of the day:
“The Mississippi regiment was
filed to the right and fronted in
line across the plain. The Indi
ana regiment was formed on the
bank of the ravine, in advance of
our right flank, by which a re
entering angle was presented to'
the enemy. Whilst this prepara- j
tion was being made, Sergeant
Major Miller of our regimeut was
sent to Capt. Sherman for one or
more pieces of artillery from his j
“The enemy, who was now
soon to be a body of richly capari
soned lancers, came forward rapid
ly and in beautiful order, the files
and rauks so closed as to look like
a solid mass of men and horses.
Perfect silence and the greatest
steadiness prevailed in both lines
of our troops as they stood at
shouldered arms waiting the at
lacK. v. ounaeni or success, ana
auxious to obtain the full advau
tage of a cross fire at short dis
tance, I repeatedly called to the
men not to shoot.
“As the enemy approached his
speed regularly diminished until
when within 80 or 90 yards he
had drawn up to a walk and seem
ed about to halt. A few rifles
fired without orders and both
lines poured in a volley so destruc
tive that the mass yielded to the
blow and the survivors fled. Cape.
Sherman having come up with a
few field pieces from his battery,
followed their retreat with a very
effective Are until they had fled
beyond the range of his guns.”
At the battle of Monterey the
Mississippians acquitted them
selves with equal distinction. In
giving an account of the opera
tions Col. Davis thus refers to the
heroism of the late Col. A. K.
McClung who was the first of the
attacking party to scale the walls
of Monterey.
“I cannot omit to mention the
gallant bearing of Lien. Col. Mc
Clung. At the storming of the
fort he first mounted the parapet
and turning to the regiment wav
ed his sword over his head in
token of the triumph of our arms.
Leaving him in that position to
cheer the men on to further dan
ger it was my misfortune soon
after to lose his services. At the
fortified stone building he was
iangerously wounded.”
He refers thus to another Mis
“I must also mention Lieuten
mt Patterson who sprang into the
ipen embrasure as Col. AlcClung
nounted the parapet and fired the
irst American piece within the
,vorks of the enemy.”
Of Capt, Downing of Hinds
;ounty, he said:
‘Capt. Downing in whom are
lappily combined the qualities of
\ leader and commander was
severely wounded whilst among
die foremost cheering his company
to the charge.”—Meridian Press.

Roosevelt's Blunder.
The removal of Julian Binghnm,
republican, from a federal office
in Alabama by President Roose
velt, because Mr. Bingham, like
certain other white republicans
in Alabama, barred negro mem
bers of the party from participa
tion in the transactions of its state
convention, has been announced
and with the announcement comes
a frank confession of the reasons
that induced Mr. Roosevelt to
swing the political axe. The rea
sons were officially expressed by
Postmaster General Payne, who
“The change in the office of col
lector of internal revenue for the
r)ififrioh nf Alalinmit in nn vvitiA rA
fleets upon the integrity or ability
of Mr. Bingham, the iucumbeut
of the office. Ik is one of those
things which occasionally happens
in politics. The position talct'u
by the republicans of the north is
looked upon as a perversion of the
fundamental principles of the re
publican party and Mr. Biugtiam
is in a measure held responsible
for thyat action, lienee the change.
“Neither the adiui nistratiou nor
the republican party of the north
will stand for the exclusion of any
section of our people by reasou of
their race or color when iu other
respects such persons have com
plied with the laws aud are eligible
for participation iu political
affairs and the action of the re
publican state convention referred
to iu arbitrarily excluding them is
not approved any more than such
action would be approved if it
were taken in Ohio or Indiana.”
Of course, to those republicans
who are ‘‘Lilly White” and wish
to remain so, who, whether from
unseinsn desires to runner tne in
terests of their party, or from in
centives of personal betterment,
refuse to be placed upon a politi
cal equality which Mr. A. Lin
coln created by his proclamation of
emancipation, the removal of Mr.
Bingham muBt be indeed a sore
trial of the flesh: but to those who
“love to see the engineer heist by
' his own petard” it has a humor
ous side.
But coming as it does, upon the
evo of Mr. Roosevelt’s advent into
the south, the incident is of more
moment and worthy of more atten
tion and thought than it might
otherwise be.
It is, of course, like his famous
feeding with the Alabama profes
sor, an indication that he considers
himself upon an equality with the
negro; the co-victualing being smy
bolio of the social, the cutting
down of the lily being significant
of the political party which the
wayward lad upon the presidential
stool wishes for himself and at
tempts to force upon his would-be
followers in the south. It is an
act which will not only chill the
ardor of his henchmen, but to
some extent close the open hand of
hospitality extended him by the
, entire people of Dixie, republican
band democratic. It will utterly
work in the south, it will make
impossible a strong white man’s
republican party in states to the
sun-ward of Mason and Dixon’s
line and will accentuate more
sharply even then now or in the
past the fact that the republican
party in the south is the party of
the negro and the democratic
party the party of the white man.
If the solid south needed any
soldification Mr. Rosevelt has
hardened the 6oft spots. His only
chance at us now is through re
duced legislative representation.
Southern democracy is safe.
Truly ivfr. Roosevelt has blun
dered. Jdy one act he has shown
his contempt for the people of the
south, has laid bare the small
regard he and his whole party
have for the policy of civil service;
and has sharply rebuked men who
seemingly were his faithful ser
_a_ r . i i_i_i ^ i
iniuo> a co, ur imo uiuuuriru
aud blundered so egregiouslv that
if a blunder is worse than a crime
as the witty Frenchman said, then
every democrat may aptly quote,
“I have great comfort m this fel
low; his complexiou is perfect
gallows.’—Meridian l’ress.
