The State Auditor 1ms issued a

Note 'that closing paragraph,.
According to liberal journal
personal government Is at an end
and the Emperor's letter is the
"first chapter in the history of the
liberal empire."
Whether Liberty shall make her
home in France remains to lx
seen :but her people nre marshaled
with their laces toward the rising
sun of progress of political en-
fianchisemenl and are icd by
Napoleon himncif.
He is no longer the Ossr. the
autocrat, the government. Be
tween him and France there is lo
be a responsible Ministry. With
some slight modifications the
government of France will be con
ducted substantially as is the gov
eminent of Great Britain. The
Ministers will bo responsible to
the Corps Lcgislatiif and the mem
bers of the Corps Lcgislutin" will
be responsible to the people. If
the new plan works well France
will have reason to be proud ; for
the government machine will be
one of the most perfect in exist
ence. Nominally an empire, with
a truly great man at iu head,
France will in point of fact be a
republic.
Where is the American outside
of Radical office holders, present
and prosp ctivc. who would not
be a citizen of France ? There
life, property and.political rights
will be safe. Here they arc r.t the
mercy of political hucksters, gam
blers, thieves, There they have
a political edifice within which
thev can and do live.
Here the people are wildly
roaming beneath clouds of disas
ter In n political Sahara. There
tlie representatives of the people
say to the ruler, "thou slialt or
shalt not do this thing," and the
ruler submits. Here the repre
sentatives of suy to the
foi'V," ye must or must not do
this thing," aud the coc sub
mit. Hcrciu are presented the
two principles. Deeper tliaii ever
is Napoleon's name engraved on
the page of history, and nobler
than ever is his record. If the
First Napoleon must in all time to
come be spoken of as the Julius
Cicsar of France, the Third Napo
leon will undoubtedly be remem
bered aa the Augustus.
If tho First Washington must in
all time to como be spoken of as
the Father of his country, the
"Second Washington" will un
doubtedly be remembered as the
rarricido thereof.
From the days of Clovis, Pepin

For more than two centuries

We have been shown a private
letter which states thai Dr. '1'. S.

iu the IIeralu yesterday, was as
sassinated in his own hoiii-e, in the
Hilda of his family by six federal
soldiers bended by Deputy blici'il!

was shot through the window, the
ball taking effect near the left tem
ple. It va cei'luicly, as stated, a

flected anything but credit' upou
the actors In this Hid affair. After
the house had been Min-omuled
and every avenue of In. escape cut
off to deliberately shoot him
through the window U atrocious.
But he wat .imply a "rebel'' shot
by Union soldier mid the matter
will be dropped without investiga
tion or puyjshipeiit. Will there
never be an end to llic.u atrocities ?
Will the time never come when a
citizen cau lit down in t tie bosom
of his family and feel that he I

lo preserve the pence and to keep
good order?
We learn that his family aio iu

tho shock occasioned by this hor
rible deed.
Tue Raymond Gazette of the
5th says that, six of ,tho criminals
confined in the Hinds County jail
effected their escape on the Fri
day night previous, by cntting
through tho floor. Tho Gazette
congratulates the county upon
being relieved from the burden of
their support.

We are highly encouraged with
the reception which this scheme basW
met. It argues well for its suo
ccs. We have had asinrance
from many parties, men of energy,

they will heartily co-operate In the
matter. After the charter is ob

short time before the fir a series of
stock U taken up d then the As
sociation' will regularly gd io
work. There are but two cutties
of people who It is desirable should
be engaged in the building scheme :
those who require the assistance of
the Association to obtain a home,
and those who desire the success of
the Institution from pure consid
erations of public benefit and in
dividual good. None need engage
in this project from Interested mo
