The telegraph -Informed ns res
terday that the ilouaa of Rcpresen-
tatlvei of the United States bad
pawed a bill, similar to that re
quired of Virginia, fur the admis
sion of MloaUsippL The framing
of this bill was postponed for
several days in the Committee to
admit of the return of B. F. Butler,
who was absent In New York city.
Immediately upon his return the
bill wfts'framed, submitted and was
paused by the House. Our delec
table member to the Unitct? tatei
benale, tho Honorable Military
Adelbert Ames, was before tbe
Committee and gave it ns his opin
ion that he had so arranged affairs
here in his various appointments
that he thought the State safe for a
while at least. From some cause,
which we cannot conjecture, the
linn. II. R. Revels was not invited
to Appear before this august com
mittee. This weclulin to bo a very
great affront to tho colored Repub
licans of the State and should be
properly resented. The colored
people of this State constitute al
trout solely the Radical party, and
we claim tlrat it is a direct affront
to select a white man to represent
them bo fore the Reconstruction
Committee when, a colorod maul
had becu sclectod for that purpose.
But we presume they will, take it
all in good part.
The simple declaration that a bill
similar to that adopted with regard
to tbe admission of Virginia does
not curry with it much informa
tion; heuco we give here the prin
cipal features of the Virginia bill.
In tho first place, before any mem
ber of the Legislature of the Stato
shall take or resumo his scat, or
any officer of the State shall entor
upon tho duties of his office, he
shall take, and subscribe, and file in
the office of the Secretary of Stato
for permanent preservation an oath
in the form following :
"I do solemnly swear that I hare
never taken an oath as a member
of Congress, or as a member of any
State Legislature, or as an execu
tive or judicial officer of any Stuio
to support the Constitution of the
United States, and aftorwards en
gaged In insurrection or rebellion
against the stme, or given aid or
comfort to the enemies thereof. 8u
help me God."
Or such person shall in llko man
ner take, subscribe, and file tho fol
lowing oath : '
"1 do solemnly swear that I have,
by an act of Congress of the United
States, been relieved from the ina
bilities imposed on me by the four
teenth amendment of the Constitu
tion of the United States. So help
me God."
Which oath shall bo taken before
and certified by an officer lawfully
authorized to administer oaths,
And any person who shall know
ingly swear falsely in taking either
of such oaths shall be guilty of
perjury, and shall be punished
therefor by imprisonment not less
tbau one year, and not more than
ton, and shall bo fined uot lesa than
$1,000, and not more than $10,000,
And iu all trials for any violation
of this act, the certificate of the
taking of either of said oaths,
with proof of signature of either
party accuse d, shall be taken and
held as conclusive evidence thai
such oath was lawfully and rcgu
larly administered by competent
authority.
Aud, provided further, That
every such person who ahull nog
lect, for a period of thirty days next
after the passage of this act, to take
and subscribe uiid file such oath S
aforctai J.bliall be deemed and taken
to all Intents and purposes to havo
vacated his office.
It is further required as follows :
And provided further, That tho
Stato of Virgiuia Is admitted to re
presentation on the following fun
damental conditions :
That the Constitution shall never
be so amonded or changed as to de
prive any citizen or class of citizens
of the United SUtes of the right to
voto, who are qualified to vote by
the Constitution heroin recogniaed,
except for such crimes as are now
folonios at common law, whereof
they shall have been convicted un
der laws equally applicable to all
the inhabitants of the State.
Provided that any alteration of
said Constitution, proscriptive in
its effect, may be made In regard to
time and place of residence of vo
ters.
That It shall never be lawful for
the same State to deprive anv citi
sen of the United States, on ac
count of his race, color or previous
condition of servitude, of the right
to bold office nnder the Constitu
tion and laws of said State, or npon
any such ground to require of Lira
any other qualifications for office
than are required of all other cltl
sens. That the Constitution shall ne?er
be so amended or changed as to de
prive any citizen or class of citizens
of the school right and privileges
seenred by the Constitution of said
State.

A correspondent of the Cincin
nati Comracrciul endeavors to
correct the editor of that journal
in his opinion of tho electiouof
Gen. Ames to the Senate. This
writer endeavors to create the
impresMion, and in fact makes tho
assertion that General Ames did
not desire the position, but had to
be continually urged before ho
would accept it. There is not a
single member of the Radical par
ty iu the State, who docs not know
that this statement la untrue.
Gentlemen, then of thnt party,
early aa last June, were told by
General Ames, that he was a
candidate for tho United .States
Senate, and that he desir
ed it to enable him to ' secure
the vacant Brigadier-Generalship.
He also said to the same gentle
men that ho intended to carry tho
election for tho Radical party if
he was compelled to march bis
troops fiom-poll to poll and occu
py three months in tho election.
Affidavits to this effect wero pre
pared and forwarded to Washing
ton but Gen. Ames met them with
a. species of denial or rather, he
refused to to declare positively
whother the charges made were
true or false.
Every statement made to Gen.
Grant of Gen. Ames' conduct in
this State, however, was filtered
into General Grant's ear through
the medium of General Porter,
General Grant's private Secretary
and Gen. Ames' particular friend,
and tho man who caused Ames to
be placed in command of this
Department, and who encouraged
Ames to become a candidate for
llio Senate. Hence no truthful
statcmeut ever reached General
Grant until he had been thorough
ly poisoned by this influence
which he hud about him. It was
publicly charged iu the papers
that in many counties tho Radi
cal party declared that it was in
structed by General Ames to give
no man a nomination for the
Legislature until he had pledged
himself to vote for Gon. Ames for
the Senate. Prominent members
of the party months ago admitted
it was ar ran god for his aid and
assistance, Gen. Ames was to be
rewarded by electing him to the
Senate.
At that time, it was understood,
he merely desired it as a compli
ment. Certain members of the
purty, however, who even then
doubted hint, required at one time
that he should sign a written
plcdgo that he would resign imme
diately upon his election. This
General Ames refused to do, and
there came near being quite a
squabble in tho camp, when it was
finally declared that such action on
the part of General Ames, if it be
came known, would make the par
ty ridiculous, and the demand as
then made was relinquished. Af
terwards, General Ames, to many
gentlemen, announced in plain
and emphatic terms that he was a
candidate, and that ho felt it due
him for labors in behalf of the
party, to elect him. "
So much for Gcucral Ames'
mock modesty. He never requir
ed persuasion. Ho has been a
candidate the whole time.

rntHiREssuve motejients,
The subjects that are engaging
the attention of citizens' meetings
are of a progressive character.
They tend to the advancement of
our city's interest, wealth, growth,
and importance. The building
up of a grand commercial em
porium at Vicksburg will react to
the advantage of every place in
the Stato. Therefore instead of
other points in the State turning
the cold shoulder upon our pro
gressive movements, or exhibit
ing a' feeling of envy and rivalry, it
Is to their interest to ooncur with
and aid in tho projects that are on
foot for the increaso of this place,
and that are calculated to make it
one of the chief placeB in tho
Southwest. In assisting to place
Vicksburg, ns a commercial point
on an equality with Louisville,
St. Louis, Memphis and New Or
leans (to be accomplished In duo
time) it is simply bringing your
selves (ye Interior points) more
and more within tho circle of com
mercial influences and opening up
grand advantages Hint will tend
most surely to your growth and
prosperity.
In connection with the subjects
before the citizens meetings we
hope to see at tbe next meeting
the matter of the Vicksburg Build
ing Association brought up and a
committee appointed to select a
suitable basis for its organization,
and thon corporators selected to
apply for a charter. This is for
the good of our citizens.
Next, a matterwf even greater
imporlauce, should at once come
to the attention of the society. It
is that of Immigration.
Tills Is a vital question with us
and It Is ripe foractlonC' Dr. Fisher
of the St. Louis Volks Blatt, is in
town and represents the interest of
a German immigration society,
lie says there are vory many who
are as anxious to come here to set
tie, as we are to have them. They
have stroug arms and capital
They wish to buy laud. They will
pav part cash and the balance on
time In yearly payments with In
terest.
, Now we must have an orgauiza
lion. specially adapted. to manage
this matter.
We suggest that, at the earliest
liuoment, an Immigration Society
be formed adjunctive to the Citi
lun'a Onraulzation. Let the matter
come up at tbe noxt meotlng of
said Soniety, and a President, Vice
President. Sccrotary, &c, be ap
pointed or elected. Then we can
work this matter of immigration
successfully by a systematic co-operation
with any and' all othor so
cieties, who have immigrants to
send out. Our organization can
procure for them farms or lands
for purchase or rent or otherwise!
or, atloast, facilitate their doing so.
It seoins to us this is advisable
and necessary. Lot these matters
come up at the next meeting.
A Bkaotifcl Spectacle and- ah
Ikterestino Cbkemont. We were
tho Interested witness of one of
those charming and suggestive
exhibitions yesterday, which it is
not ofteu our good fortune to be
present at'
The occasion was the presenta
tion of a banner, by the young la
dles of the Vicksburg Female In
stitute, under the charge of Rev.
J. E. Wheeler, to the students
of St. Stephens Academy, which is
under the charge of Rev. Albert
Lyon. Tho students of the latter
Acad r my are under military train
ing and discipline, and have often
attracted the approving notice of
our citizens by tho gentlemanly and
soldierly deportment when public
ly parading the streets.
Previous to the hour appointed
for tho presentation, the cadets of,
the Academy wore exercised thor
oughly in the battalion drill and
exhibited a knowledge and address
worthy of old soldiers, and made
our heart glad as we thought of
time post when those over tender
ly to bo remombored organizations,
the "Southrons" and "Sharpshoot
era," took pride in the exhibition
of their military skill. At the
proper time tho young gentlemen
were marched to Mr. Wheeler's
Institute and thon received the ban
ner. Miss Smith, of Brandon, we
believe, made the presentation in
an address full of a truly patriotic
woman's enthusiasm expressed In
an impressive and charming mad
ner. .

The galaxy of female loveliness
that were present gave an enliven
ing beauty to the iceae. As tbey
were arrayed upon the steps and
balcony to tbe right and left there
of it was remarkable . that they
formed a living human erou.
Every one was dollghtod, and
voluntary expressions of admira
tion were passed from lip to lip.
The toiree In the evening, at tbe
Academy, was a scene of entertain
ing beauty, grace and intelligence.
It thrlllod every heart to see. tho
enjoyment of the younger portion,
while tbe eldors also entered .Into
tho occasion with a zest not often
witnessed at such gatherings.
All went homo happy with the
day's pleasures and triumphs, and
with longing anticipations of such
gala days iu the future.
To Rovs. Albert Lyons and J. F.
Wheeler and their excellent schools
we wish every success.
DlSTllltUANCES AT BttOOKSVlLLI.
We have heard some pain
ful rumors of a serious trouble
between whites and blacks at
Brooksvillo, Noxubee county. A
man named rainier had a per
sonal rencounter with a negro,
wuo was in a procession parad
ing the streets last Saturday.
Palmer shot at the negro wound
ing him very slightly. This In
censed the Leaguers, who took
Palmer, fastened him up In a
house end were going-to hum
him, house, and all, but a few
white men rescued him. At lost
accounts the negroes were breath
ing vengeance and threatening to
burn tne town. I lie whites were
armed and waiting lor them, aad
warm work was expected. We
hope the affair will terminate with
out bloodshed. Meridian Ga

. Later news says the negroes
subsidod, and quiet was restored.
Tnc Disintegration Qcestion
Tite Telegraph of January b has the
following on this question : "It has
been quietly assumed by the seces
sionists that the mind of tho Brit
ish people has been already made
up on the subject, and that its ver
dict is In their favor. The assump
tion is ntterly baseless. What sin-
Kle 'colony can the dlsmptlonlsts
name from which Englishmen are
anxious to be parted ? Doubtless,
the Dominion or Lanada haa an ex
posed frontier, which it might cost
us a great deal to defend; but, If
you polled England to-morrow, tne
answer would oe as naughtily and
promptly for keeping Canada as it
was eight years ago, when, after
the affair of tbe Trent, the Guards
were ordered off to Quebec Is it
Victoria that we waut to get rid of
Victoria, which has scarcely com
us a shilling, and which has added
immensely to Our national wealth?
Is it even New Zealaud ? As the
public knows, we have not been
partisans of that eolony in recent
controversies ;but, if the English
people themselves are . asked
whether they shall keep it or let It
go, who doubts the answer? Had
we to think even of the presont
tlmo alone, "No athousand times
no 1" would be the response. But
In the very courso of nature these
now communities will, in another
quartcrof a century, have become
great States. They may, by timely
and temperate meascrre of concilia
tion, be induced to remain in loyal
union with the old land from which
they spring, and which, to this day,
(boy snow no desire to repudiate
or abandon. Practically, our
choice is between such an empire
of confederated' English States as
could hold Its own against the rest
ot the world combined, and the
disintegration of that nucleus of
such an Empire which is already
established. We may preserve,
while we develope, the British
Empire; or we may wantonly of
fend and outrage eolonies which
will then become the Americans of
the future no longer Integral por
tions of a self-governing confede
ration under a constitutional mon
arch, but hostile and jealous rivals,
smarting under the bitter recollec
tion that their proffered loyalty
was met by some men with cynical
repugnance, and by others with po
lite contempt. It Is- inconceivable
that English statesmen ean favor,
the last alternative) but the dangor
lies in 'drifting.' We 'drifted' tuto
a war ; wo may yot 'drift' upon
rocks more serious, if we disregard
thewarnlngs.whlcli, at each oast of
the lead, proclaim that we are get

Only 500 negroes fought at the

would nroduce no effect bat it mar.
aud probably will, prejudice tbe
minds of the people of the North
against him if suffered to go unro
fuled. .
In General Ames the Republi
cans of Mississippi recognize tho
one who has led them Irom a crush
ing defeat in 1808, to tho over
whelming victory in 1869. It was
be, who single-banded, had the
courage to oppose the schemes of
Louis Dent, the President's brother-in-law,
who came to Mississip
pi heralding himself tho represent
ative of the President, and as sent
by him to be tho ruler of Missis
sippi's dentlules. It is a well known
fact that the Republican parly waa
ready to rush to the support of
Dent, believing him to be what he
represented himself, and that
tbe impending catastrophe was
averted only by the prompt remov
al by General Ames of those who
had been prominent in bringing
him forward as a candidate, and
who were his avowed friends. In
short, it was his policy that built
np and made the Republican pxrfy
what it is now. .

strength lies its grm' Jft danger.
