op a long time even before that on

advanced though it sffected the
right to vote of over 100,000 white
persons In Missouri, West Virgin

Even if the Court should lack
nerve to meet this question, it is
said Missouri will at the next elec

ia to the effect that since the ad

been repeated efforts made to har
monize the two wings of the Ke-(
publican party in regard to the ad
mission of the State. Gov. Wells
hu held, and still adheres (to the
opinion,that nothing turther ought

ter, Humphries, and the reet of

sition short of Sumner's plan re

and State officers to take the "iron

a conference of leading Republi
cans wu held, which, after a pro

another meeting wu held. Among
those present were Colonel Jenk

Committee, Judge Bond, Con

Mr. Searles and party arrived
in Canton, on Thursday, lut, hav
ing completed the preliminary
survev of the nroDOsed railroad
route from Vicksburg to Canton.
They were out just six weeks In
their work.
Mr. Searles reports most favor
ably in behalf ot the proposed
route. To use his own language
it is "a beautiful, euy and clieap
line altogether." He found the
line through Warren county com
paratively euy, considering the
general bad topographical fea
tures. Striking the Big Black
valley six milea below the Yazoo
county line, he proceeded thence
through that fertile section of
country opto beetle rerry, ana
there crossed into Madison. The
line through Madison runs from
Scott's ferry, or near there, about
a half mile south or vernon,
thence on ss directly as possible
to Canton, taking such advantage
as the creek and river valleys will
We will uy that Mr. Searles
himself speaks u if enamored of
the route. He conslderers it an
exceedinzlv cheap line, and it
passes through such r.cn ana
beautiful regions, in tuts county,
Yazoo and Warren.
ThisDroiect toward which the
Ereliminary steps are thus taken,
eing so favorably reported upon,
should at once receive toe atten
tion of the citizens of Canton as
well u of Vicksburg, and those
along the line of the route. The

On the morning of the 30th init,
at the residence of her son-in-law,
Dr. Hicks, in lbs city of Vicksburg,
Mas. Sallib 8. Ykbgu, died in
the 62d year of her age.
The announcement of the death
of this widely known and estima
ble lady, hu not only wrung with
sorrow the hearts of her children,
and other relatives, bat overspread
with gloom a community, where
for many years she filled a distin
guished place, and of which she wu
a useful and cherished member.
A native of Knoxville, Tenn-
she wu the daughter of the Hon.
Edward Scott. Married at sixteen
to that ereat and good man, the late
George S. Yerger, she removed
with mm to aaanvwe, wnere iney
resided until 1838. From that time
until the day of her death, her
borne wuin Mississippi ; first in
Vlcksburz. snd then, from 1802, in
Jsckson. As the almost idolized
wife, and afterwards the venerated
widow of one whom, while living,
all delighted to honor, and whose
beloved ana biessea memory win
long survive him, as well as for ber
own many noblo traits of charac
ter, she wu most highly esteemed.
Her charities, though unostenta
tious, were almost unexampled.
An instance of ber splendid gene
rosity wss afforded in s single of
fering of 120,000 towards buildlug
a new church for the congregation
of St. Audrews' Tarisb in this city,
of which she was a zealous commu
nicant and although the loss of ber
wealth, occasioned by the war, pre
vented the fulfillment of her de
sign, yet at the time her contribu
tion was made it wss equivalent to
the full amount, and in gold.
The church, and especially the

Yorger was to tnem in me uaya oi

as her slmost princely hospitalities,
were dispensed with a truly lavish
hand. None has better cause to
know than the writer of this hum
ble tribute, what she was to her
friends, and tne extent oi ner oene
factions. Although her last years
were clouded by sickness ana sor
row, it Is our unspeakable comfort
to know, that ber ohutenlogs,
?;rlevous as they were, worked out
or her the peaceable fruits of right
eousness, and that through much
tribulation, she hu entered the

From evry quarter we hear the
complaint of our planting commu
nity of "want of labor." Planta
tions ars lying idle, fencing and
buihlin-s decaying, infant forests
growing Into msnbood upon the
finest and most remunerative soil
upon the earth, and a general
stagnation exists. A paralysis is
creeping upon every limb of agri
culture, and we are told that it is
all for want of labor. But it is not
so. It is want of effort, want of
energy, want of determination to
secure labor; in place of sitting
quietly down in imitation of a
leading character in Dicken's
"waiting for something to turn
up." Many in tbeir apathy have
tbeir minds busily engaged crea
ting phantoms which impress them
with tbe idea that the government
and the Radical party will inter
posesome barrier to this branch
of progress and national prosperi
ty ; while the fact is that the Radi
cal party is fully committed to the
doctrine of immigration. Their
platform invites immigration from
all climes and countries, all poli
tics, professions and religious
beliefs, while their very
constitution creates a commis
sioner of immigration. I am glad
that there is some vitality upon
this all important subject begin
ning to manifest itself. Tbe citi
zens meeting on Saturday night
wu a step in the right direction. 1
It is determined to hold weekly
meetings, let these meetings look
ing to the prosperity of tbe city
and the county be well attended,
let every branch of business men
contribute tbeir presence, energy
and talent in pushing forward this
new movement Action is wbat
we, want Practical, efficient ac
tion will bring all the labor the
country wants. Why is there no
combination amongst our Plant
ers? no concert of action amongst
them ? no Planters meetings held
to consult and devise means for
securing labor? Do you want
the labor of tbe black man ? thou
sands of negroes are in Virginia,
Georgia and the Carolines, eager
to come into tbe cotton regions
of Mississippi and Louisiana. Do
you want the German or Swede ?
swarms of them arc upon the
shores of the North and Baltic
Seas waiting for an invitation and
transportation. Why cannot we
have an organization ? form an
association to bri ig this labor
in our midst? Such as has
been done in other portions of
our'State by Mr. Bergen, Mr.
Hester and Rev. Mr. Bliihi'cldt
effort action again we say will
bring the labor iu abundance, but
it will not come by silting down
and bemoaning tbe "want of la
bor." Are our planter friends
aware of the fact that upon the
very streets of Vicksburg, at
your very doors, there is daily to
be found an immense quantity of
labor, seeking employment upon
plantations, and to our knowledge
in hundreds of instances have
taken steamer aud returned north
because they cou'.i not find labor V
True, it may be irksome and dis
agreeable to hunt this labor up on
tbe streets, but it is a necessity
and should be done. They are
siraagers and do not understand
how to press themselves forward
to find employment, rlunt them
up, let thcin have comfortable
homes, be patient, kind, and cor
rect with them and they will be
bnt a rivulet which will soon
swell the ebb into a full tide if
emigrants. I am glsxl that at last
the attention of our City Fathers
hu becen turned to this subject
and one of its members brings
up the proposition of having
an ''Emigrants Home." That is
exactly what is wanted, boarding
as, we all know, is so extravagant
that laborers would have their lit
tle mite exhausted in a few days.
We do hope that this matter will
be pressed in the Council. Prompt
and practical action upon tbe sub
ject will make them public bene
factors. W.
Commerce bv the Suez Canal
A firm of Liverpool shipowners is
offering to take cargo for Bom
bay, via the Suez Canal, at JL3
10s. per ton, while another firm is
building a fleet of steamers of
large capacity but light draft, es
pecially for that route. The
working of tbe canal, as far as it
affects steamers of moderate size,
and the more valuable descrip
tions of goods, such as will bear
steamer freight, will, therefore,
soon be apparent, but it will be
some time yet before its effects on
sailing vessels and heavy cargoes
can bo ascertained. Tbe intricate
and dangerous navigation of the
Red Sea, says the London and
China Telegraph, is totally unsuit
cd to sailing vessels, and to per
form the voyage with reasonable
dispatch and safety, they would
need towing, not only through
the canal, but between' Suez and
Aden. It is stated in Paris that
150,000,000 francs must still be
expended on the canal before it
can bo definitely opened as a
great commerciul thoroughfare,
and M. de Lesscps wants authori
zation to raise a loan to tbat ex
tent. Another divorce trick In Indiana
is mentioned. The wife bad the

mooaly adopted :
Resolved, Tbat we have received
with sincere: regret the letter of our
beloved Pastor, the Rev. William
W. Lord, D. D., conveying to us
bis resignation of the Rectorship
of this church, to take effect on the
first day of February next.
Resolved, Tbat we feel sure thst
but a high sense of duty could have
induced him to sever our relations
u Pastor and people, and that we
embrace this opportunity to convey
to him tbe expression of our pro
found respect and warm affection.
Resolved, That we can never
forget that be came to ns at a
time when tbe congregation of
&L rauls was scattered aud wast
ed by war; crippled by pov
erty and bowed down in
the oust by recent defeat: and that
by his words of cheer, bope, aud
courage, he revived our spiriti,
strengthened our hearts and en
abled us to accomplish a certain
measure of success in the organiza
tion of the Parish u much success
as our evil fortune and the adverse
circumstances by which we were
surrounded rendered possible.
Resolved, Tbat neither can we
ever forget that, during all the four
yesrs of bis ministry among ns, and
his labor for us, we hsve given him
a most scsnty and inadequate pe
cuuiary support, and tbat It hu
been only by the aid of his own
private means earned by bis own
arduous labors during the week,
that we have been able to keep
open tbe ancient sanctuary of God,
aud to enjoy the privilege of wor
shipping in the church of our
Fathers ; that for this help and all
he bu done for as we tender him
our heartfelt thanks.
Resolvsd, That by bis profound
instructive investigation of the
truths of revealed religion, by bis
brilliant illustrations drawn from
history, literature, science, aud our
daily experience of tbeir applica
tion to our public, social and indi
vidual life, by his overwhelming
exposure of many plausible popu
lar religious errors, aud many su
perficial philosophical objections
to Christianity, and by his eloquent
portrayal of the history, teacbiug,
example aud dut of the Church,
bs has strengthened us in the faith
of Christ, elevated our thoughts of
tbe dignity, power and mission ot
His Kingdom upon Earth, and en
larged our seuse of tbe duties, zeal,
devotion aud effort demanded of
every member of His Sacred Body.
Resolved, That our Rector will
carry with him to his new field of
labor our boat wishes and unwor
thy prayers, first, for the blessings
of God upon bis labors as a preach
er of RiKbteousness, which we
know to be tbe first desire of bis
heart, snd next, for the welfare
aud happiness of himself and of
every member or his umiiy, who
will always be held in the affection
ate and grateful memory of tbe
Congregation of St. Pauls.
Resolved, That our Rector in be
coming tbe Rector of tbe Church
of tbe Holy Trinity, Vicksburg,
will become a bond of sympathy
between the congregation of St.
Tunis and tbe people ot that dis
tant Parish. That we beg blm to
convey to them our respectful
greeting and to deliver to tbem the
accompanying copy of these reso
lutions which we have addressed
to tbem. That we congratulate
them upon securing the services of
one so gifted aud so well quaiined
to become tbeir teacher and guide ;
and tbat we commeud blm to their
cencrous welcome.
Resolved, That the chairman of

The following valuable hints in re
gard to tbe preservation of leather

rendering it lisble to break and
erack. When leather becomes so
warm as to give off the smell of
leather, it is singed. Close rubber
shoes siso destroy the life ot leath
er. All varnishes and all blacking
containing tbe properties of varnish
should be avoided.
Shoe leather is greatly abused.
Persons kuow nothing or care less
sbout the kind of material used
tbsu they do sbout tbe polished
produced. Vitriol blacking Is used
until every particle of oil in the
leather is destroyed. To remedy
this abuse the leather should be
washed once a month with warm
water : and when about half dry, a
coat of oil and tallow should be ap-
lied and the boots set aside for a
ay or two. Tbis will renew the
elasticity and life in tbe leather,
and when thus used upper leather
will seldom crack or break.
Don't wash harness in water and
with soap. No harness is ever so
toiled that a damp sponge will not
remove tbe dirt. When harness
loses its lustre snd turns brown,
which almost sny leather will do
alter long exposure to the air, the
harness should be given a new coat
of grain-black Before using tbe
grain-black, the grain surface
should be thoroughly washed with
potash water until all the grease is
killed, snd after tbe application of
tho grain-black, oil and tallow
should be applied to tbe surface.
Tbis will not only "fasten ie col
or," but make the leather flexible.
Harness which is grained can be
cleaned with kerosene or spirits of
turpentine, aud no harm will re
sult if tbe parti affected are wuhed
aud oiled immediately afterward.
