January 185G. i Friends:-! elated my. letter of last week lmn rttiENDs:-! ciotedmy before our great Convention adjourned. The proceedings of that; great American,, meeting havolseen laid before vouand we havo no lnnht tKVv KnvA mt vftiik intlr annrovalf T.atA .' on the last night of Its fitting, after the" ladies had left the Hou?, our talentqd and eloquent friend, J. S. Byrne, Esqr., of Vicksburg, was called on for a speech; He very reluctantly for a speeciu He very reluctantly complied with the call, by returning thanks for Mie compliment paid himr saying that as night ' had progressed to the 'wee sma' hourr,' he would not have the bad taste to inflict a speech upon the audience, especially s they had been so well entertained Jjy th very excelleqones that had been delivered during the. night. His remarks we are told, though few,,- were happy and to the point, and it was a matter of general regret that he was cillod on se late, as many who had never-had the pleasure of hearing him, wutild have been delighted to have heard a longer speech on this occasion. All a'gree that the Convention was one of the largest and best conducted political .meeting ever held in. the State notwithstanding it was whispered that Messrs.; Freeman and Thacher had blank in dictments ready to be filled out with the names of any "conspiring Know-Nothings' wfco should come up to the Sinhedrim from the Democrat ic Counties! Judge Ghohon was expected daily in the city, the Penitentiary was not full, and the two distinguished, prosecutors waitin and willin' to seize upon all engaged in the foul conspiracy against the great Democratic party! Some, we may well suppose, ware deterred from making their appearance, and a great many had bolted immediately after the election. Tae bat tle went agaWt U3, and as rats desert falling houses, they fled from what they considered a sinking cause. But we had enough left to make one of the handsomest political demonstrations ever made in tho State. True we hal been out voted at the late election, our' principles were good, and our men those that were faithful unto the end .were good too,theonHy fault was, we did not hara enough of them. .The platform of the American party was predicated on too high an estimate of human nature. We had furty-Sve thousand voters sworn into the order, but the stern obligations of a sacred oath melted before the obligations to party rule,and theaters and stripes trailed in thi dust. Tin digniS i Republican axiom inserted in our platferr, : ;! I f:k,tUU4i,a'W 1 ynan -Aj-,i3r error arising iroin a too exalted an estimate of human nature, especially Mississippi, Democratic humin nature. Tnis was all beautiful an! patriotic ia theory, but its practical workings proved its political fallacy. TheoTices have si lon been souiht of the spoilers, fait they traveled slow in the new or der of things, ail while th8 ATaericanr relying on the justness of their cause, were waiting for them to seek them, "The witches caught them on the way." In other words the Sag Nichts in their wil 1 hunt after oTice, caujht them up before th?y could reach the Americans! Now this is a fact that will not bo denied, and we a3k docs our defeat argue any fault in our principles or men? Not at all. Tii3 fault wi3 in the oJi:e and notour men. Wa propose an entire change of tactics, and reommenJ our peeple to sce'e for the oTices next time if the mountain won't come to Mihjrnet Mahomet must go to the mountain. . Yesterday our polite. and agreeable friend, Governor M;Ri called to go with us to the State Hjuse to see the assembled wisdom in sitting. We spent an hour very pleasantly in the two Ileuses, and are constrained to say- though we wish from our heart good Americans had been in their places, that the present Le gislature is a very able and dignified body. The lower house particularly, is "as fine a body of men as could be got together in any state, though a large majority of themare Sag Nichts. The Speaker, Sir. B irry, is a fine looking gentle manand presides over the Hiase with dignity and marked ability. Tae Clerk, Mr. Pickett, late editer of the Natchez Free Trader, is quite handsome, and seems well qnliaed for his du ties. 4 Atrrong m the members Juije Sharkey towers a head and shoulders above them all, and next to him in point of ability and dignity is our good friend, J. L. Alcorn, Esq., of Coahoma He is a splendid looking gentleman, and well versed in Parliamentary rules, having represen ted his district in the Senate and House for a great many years. ,Holme and Yerger, o' Yazoo, are conspicuous amort the younger members of the Hsuse, though no great ques tions have come op te give them an opportunity to show their ability. . As the Democrats have so large a majority, the Americans are pretty much like a poor man at a frolic, and have not much to say. The two Houses are progressing shwly with the new Code, and passing local bills, not giving much scope for the aspirant for parliamentary honors. In the Fenate they are also reading the new Code and adopting and amending it, and it bids fair to drag its slow length" along through the whole session, as but two" chapters are yet dispesed xjt. - .

Itwai a splendid affair, and we saw for the first time, the beauty of Jackson as sembled. The room was large and set with tables beautifully and bountifully spread. In one corner of the room was the post office. As we approached it in our promenade of observation, a beautiful girl came to the door of the tent and said there was a letter in the office for Mrs. Prevvett. Of course it was paid for, and it af forded us sincere pleasure. It was a welcome to Jackson, signed by "one of many." We did not learn the amount of the nett proceeds of the supper, but have no doubt it was a goodly sum. On last Sabbath we attended the Presby!erian Church, and heard a moat excellent termon by our old fi fend and pastor, the Rev. Mr. Mcln- nis. for manv vears a resident of Yazoo.

The action of the Grand Jury, has shown that the truth it embodied fell not upon a rock for they have zealaisly set them selves to their work, and have found in indict mentain every instance, wherp the evidence permitted from crimes of the highest to those of the lowest grade.
