RiiTT A friend has called our atten
tion to a communication in the Baptist
Chronicle, of the 0th ult., published at
New Orleans, which grossly misrepresents
the character and condition of the Uni
versity. The editor introduces the com
munication by saying : 'It i sent by a res
ident of Mississippi, who received it from
a pedo-baptist minister, of high standing in
the Stale, with permission to publish."
So it seems that the article was contribut
ed by a Minister of the Gospel! We
hive no inclination local! in question the
-high standing" of the author; but as men
of "hiiih standing" have sometimes been
known to do some very low things, we feel
at liberty to comment upon the production
without regard to the imputed rharsctcr
of the writer. From the knowledge he
displays in some respects, in reference to
the University, il is fair to infer lhat his
misrepresentations are not the result of
ignorance, but design. In a future num-
jLer, if others do not take the- task from
our mind, we shall endeavor to point
out some of his misrepresentations, so
that the public may not to mis'ed by
them, even when blinded by the endorse
ment of the Fa!. tor of the South Western
D.tptifl Chronicle. We am determined
to nail down these slanders upon our
State Institution, no matter from what
quarter they proceed. If a clergyman
ventures before the pub'ic in the character
of a slanderer, his black robe should not,
nor cannot protect him.
Somehow or other we cannot resist the
inclination to believe that this rrocious
epistle comes from one of those disappoint
ed dcrg) men who visited Oxford last sum
mer, with a strong impression of their ow n
importance, end vast erudition; and, lor

hat t ast. Our correspondent, 'OisrBV
B," relieves i of the agreeable neces
sity of reporting the interesting proceed
ings of the Sons of Temperance on last
.Saturday. However, we cannot withhold
the remark that all the addresses were
excellent and highly appropriate to such
an occasion. The Orator of the Day,
Mr. T. J. Fabbab, a son of Dr. Fasba.
of Jackson, delivered an Address which
would hare done honor to one of riper
years. He is destined, at no late day,
to become an ornament to the State.
C3The beautiful Banner presented on
Saturday last, by the young ladiea cf Mr
Lewis' School to the Sons of Temperance
f the University was, we learn, painted
by Mrs. Run, the excetent lady of Rev.
Mr. Run, formerly Pastor of the Pres.
byteriaa Church at this place. It is a
lovely thing. The appropriate Ode sung
en the occasion, was written by Professor
Wadpxi, who is known to be a great friend

disgraceful, mean-spirited, and as much

This is not the first ebullition of venom
originating in disappointment and defeat,
which wo have seen in the newspapers.
An article of similar import and malign
ancy was written lor a bt. Louis ptper,
immediately sfter the President and Pro
fessors were elected. Over persuided by
friends, we permitted that to pnss tin

Among the appointments in Mississippi
recently made by the President, we notice
the following:
John T. Brooks of Chickasaw County

toc, in place of Andrew J. Edmonson,
wacsa tbkm or orricE has iipiked."
We are indebted to a friend for the facts
we slate. The history of this case is short
and easily told. Mr. Edmonson was nom
inated by Mr. Polk, a month or two before
Congress adjourned. The committee to
whom the subject was referred were unan
imous in favor of the re appointment of
Mr. Edmonson, who, every body knows
made an excellent officer; but the confirm
ation of the Senate did not reach Mr. Polk,
until after 12 o'clock, P. M- of the 4th of:
March, and the retiring President having
doubts as to the propriety of his approving
it at that late hour, left the nomination for
the signature of the new President. This
is a plain case of removal from office, of a
worthy and competent officer, lor opinion's
sake. It is a removal too, in the face of
Gen. Taylor's pledge to concede cve-y.

Tins morning our little village was oil

Ther was delight playing on tho face of
the youth, at the anticipated pleasuro of

they formed in order of procession, and
matched out to meet tho University Di

After meeting, (he two Divisions march'
od to the Cumberland Presbyterian church,
at the doer of which the procession halt
ed and formed in open order, to receive
the Ladies of Oxford, together with the
pupils of tho Fciiiilo Institute, who moved
in procession, escorted by tho brass band,
filling the air with strains of music. After
tho Ladies were seated in tho church, the
two Divisions marched in and took their
sctits near the pulpit. Professor Waddi:l
having delivered an appropriate prajer,
Gen. TaLUFcnno stepped forward, holding
in hand an elegantly adorncJ and beauti
fully designed hinncr, bearing on its brnd
surface, in golden letters, the motto of the
order, drawn in n triangular form enclo
sing a representation of the all seeing
eve. Above this impressive drawing stood
in bold relief, a jet d'eiu, painted in style
calculated to deceive the eye and induce
the belief that the pure water was play
