will bo seon that the County Executive
Committee yesterday took action for the
reorganization ot the Democratic party
in the county, a simp:?, can .mu
vat agreed upon, and we hope t!
people will come out when c!lel ':"jii
and do the work.
When wctake Intoconsiderr.tij; tlie
fact that the Democrat! 3 party havj C
select candidates for Sheriff, Treasurer,
Assessor, Coroner and Ranger, mem-
bers of the Board ol Supervisor, and
Jcembers of the Legislature, we don't
M, bee how anything like justice .an be

ueccstity. No Convention can be
selected that will represent tbo people
as to all the posticus to be filled, but iu
a primary eleotion every man cen vote
for his own clioico.or cvtry position.
.The people want a primary, and nearly
every one of the candidates want a
primary. Let us have one, it is the
ii! rest and best plan we can adopt.
The office of Lieutenant-Governor
was not known in Mississippi nntil the
carpel-beggert and thieves obtained
power. And noW when
we are ok the eve of getting rid of this
unnecessary officer, we are surprised to
discover that a number of our papers
have suddenly discovered that a Lieutenant-Governor
is actually ne:essary
that we cannot do without that offi
cer and that the people must vote
atralnst the proposed amendment !
We do not know how to account for
this change this conversion which is
almost as sudden as that of Saul of
., Tarsus. Possibly it has been found
that that office is necessary in order
that there may be offices enough to go
.. . r .1 ' . . -

And the drawing of five hundred
dollars salary by every member of the
Legislature was not known in Ms
sitsinDl nntil the Carpet-baggers and
thieves obtained power. If we are
so red-hot for reform that we must
abolish the office of Lieut. Governor
: ; let as go the whole hog and allow
, members of the Legislature only their
personal expenses while in actual
service.
DlncawlBK Dead Ims-..
The Jackson Clarion very truly says
that tbe discussion ol the disdandment
movement of 1873, is out of place in
the present canvass. It hat no con
nection whatever with our present po
sition. Tbe Clarion thinks it pro
duced the victory that redeemed the
State finally from the Radicals. While
we honestly believe that it did nothing
of the sort, and (bat it was the com
bined white people who redeemed the
State, we see no use whatever in argu
ing tbe point. The Clarion eonld sus
tain its side, and those who think dif
ferently could snsttln their side, and
after the question was discussed thread
bare, not one particle of good could
come of it. We bad just as well go to
work and abuse the men who refused
to support Stephen A. Douglass, when
we could have had a walk over with
him. Tbe Clarion is right ; it is worse
than folly for a powerful, well-organ
led party to industriously seek some
old question for its members to differ
about. Let the dead past bury its dead.
If the Clarion is right in refusing to
dls;uss this old issue, it is very wrong
in continually harping on the Electoral
Law. That question bat not one point
of interest for Mississippi Dem
ocratt at this time. It enters
in no earthly manner into
the present Gubernatorial campaign,
and to ducues it now when no good re
suit can follow, it seems to or, places
our distioguiched cotcmporary in an
inconsistent position. For instance no
earthly goad to tbe Democratic party
ia this State can come from such par
graphs as tbe following from '.be Cltr
iou ot the 4th:
Liuui.-Gov. Do.-sheimur, Gov. 7 ilJcn't
ne.t Iriend, In correcting a mil-statement
In reference to tbat gentleman' potillon
on tbe Electoral Commission, says tbat "It
It wilkin my personal knowledge '.hat Got
Tilden wat not In lavor .' tbe mcature."
It wat not necessary for tbo correction to
have beun made, fending tbe question in
Congrott, tbo New York Herald stated,
wiibou. contradiction, that be wat op
posed to tbe meaturo, ac X it it well known
ibat when Htwltt told out bit party, Gov
Tilden withdrew bit conlidenco from him
11c observed a becoming delicacy in the
matter of counting tbe l'retiden'.lal vote
and would bavo subjected bimtelf to tbe
charge of scll.ih ob'.ruslvencst if he bad
undertaken to control tbe action of those
whose tworn duty, undo.' theUoustitutlon
and laws, wat to count tbe Totes and to
make true and lawfvl announcement of
the result. Yet bit rioferenee to tho pre.
rogatlvee ol mombers of Congrett, fur
nishes no reason for making him the
tcapegoat for '.be tljnd-jr .that wat com
milted.
Whether Mr. Til Jen did or did nat
favor the Electoral Lw, is now
matter of very small importance to our
party in this State. But it is not a
small matter to ojr party to have aj
large majority of our Congressmen
charged with blundering. While we
are very averse to opening this ques
tion we cannot see these charges re
peatedly msr.o and remiin silent, whi'e
we fee! positively corialn, that they arc
:ruelly unjust. The Electoral Law
was a wUe, good, and patriotic law.
TUo uicu who voled for it are patriots,
who prevented civil caufusian, perhaps
civ'.I war. TbV. tha law was abused is
no fa;; ; oi the men who voted for It,
and no think any Southern member ol
Cocrcs who voted against It, com-tuitu-.l
a blunder. If the South
had refused to accept the measure so
fair ou its lace, and that could have
been justly enforced, '.ho excitement
and wrath that would have followed
would have again produced war, with
the North agaiust the South. It is
plausible to say that Congress should
have counted tbo votes an! returned
Tilden and Hendricks as elected, but
under the circumstances it was utterly
impracticable. The r.adioal party
meant to have Hayes or war, and the
Radical party had I';. - orth, the Sen
ate, the Administration, tbe Army and
Navy, the Supreme Co irt, and eighty
thousand office-holders with them.
The Democratic party bad a House In
Its death gasps, and a victory won by
Rebel voles." Under these circum
stances, any member of Congress who
refused to accept a lair law tbat offered
a peaceable solution, committed a blun
der. We are glad tbat all the Demo
cratic Senators but one appreciated Ibis
fact ; we are rejoiced that such a large
majority of the House appreciated it
We are certain that some of the mem
bers of the Commission abmcd a good
law, as many good laws bavo before
this been abused by men. If the law
was abused by some of (he men sworn
to execute it, (and the Clarion has o
ten admitted ibis) then it Is plain I ha
no blame aitachos to those who voted
for tbe law, and that tbe Clariou should
instead of charging tbee members
with a blunder, charge '.ho" of the
Electoral ConmiMnn wl'h v e criiie
!!y perpetra'ed.
Cbajibeblain thinks that private
capitalists would shrink from building
the Southern Pacific railway. They
may nave rnsnea in and bout tne
Union Pacific, but if they did, tbe peo
ple have been deceived In regard to
the matter. Now no such aid is asked
for the Southern Pacific as that which
was given the Union Paoific, and
Chamberlain and others who oppose
the Sontbern Pacific, may just as well
make np their minds to see justice
done tbe Sooth In this matter now, for
it will be done sooner or later.
Chamberlain, who was so opposed
to 8outb Carolina being freed from
the rule of thieves, celebrated tbe
Fourth of July in a manner to excite
some comment. II ? made a speech on
the 4th (we suppose tbat makes it
Fourth of July speech) at Woodstock,
Connecticut, in which be bitt'rly
attacked the President of tbe United
States. lie attaoked him on his South
ern policy, his financial policy, and on
his civil service policy. Nothing the
President has done suits Mr. Chamber
lain. He is a-nong the stalwart Re
publicans of New England, and be
gives stalwart blows. While we, down
here, read his fine periods and his
strained points, we reflect as to the
motives tbat induced this South Caro
lina carpet-bagger to make thi9 speech
Packard made a very similar talk in
Iowa, and it is probable that tbey Acted
from the same motives a des're tore
venae themselves on President Il'iyeo
because be refused to sustain their rot
ten, orjpressve governments wi'.h the
Li niteu States army, ur course thes
fellows wish tbe world to bnieve that
they are moved to make thco speeches
from (he over-load of patriotism they
carry, but the world will be very apt
to lotm a :orrcct judrtr.out o:' the
cause.

IMPORTANT PROCESSINGS COMMITTEES
APPOINTED.
At the meeflnsr held a few dsvs since
by the Cotton Exchange several im
portant resolutions were adopted,
wnicb for tbe want of sufficient space
have been necessarily laid over for
publication.
lo each resolution a committee of
three was appointed whose duty it la
I I V . .A" . f . .1 . 1...
to see that ever? effort is made to nlaoe
tbe matter before Congress, at its next
session, with the hope tbat at least a part
of the requirements of our section, in
tne snaps or public improvements, may
be had. With the steady and persist
ent work of the Committees, some
good may eventually come of it,
especially, as nothing has ever been
done for ns by the general Govern
ment. Underlying all measures of this
kind, there are always to be found
some movers In the matter, who have
by strong tfforti, and great labor,
brought tbe subject forward in such a
way as to finally lead to success.
The following are the resolutions
adopted, with tbe Committee as ap
pointed affixed to each :
Resolved, That the long-agltaied and
popular measure of arailrotd from Vicks
burg to San Diego, is entitled to assist
ance at the bandt of tbe United Statet

A beart-rondinz casualty occurred
about 11 o'clock yestorday morning-, In
the confectionery store oi ur. uioom-
enstiel, on Washington street, by wbicli
a young man, lu tbe very prime or uie,
with scarcely a moment's warning, was
ushered from time luto eternity and the
dark unknown. Mr. ttloomeuetlul and
Mr. J. 11. Gottliell, pawn-broker, each
occupy ball' of the same room. Mr.

Isaac Gottholff for the latter. At
about tbe hour named Mr.
Issac Gotthclf was conversing with
Mr. Frank across the confectionery
counter, wben Mr. Flanagan enterod
and returned a pUtol to Mr. Goilholf,
wblch he bad borrowed from him on
the day previous. Mr. Go'theif Is near

close to his eyes exainin i it, when it
was discharged bv sot: e means and
(be ball took effect in tbe right
sideol Mr. Frank's u M, under the
jaw, passed upward oM.quol'y through
the brain, and prouueeu almost instant
death. The unfortunate man exclaimed
"My God 1" and fell lo tbe floor, bleed
ins profusely, while Mr. Gotlhelf stood
horror-stricken and almost paralyzed
with grief and terror. An inquest was
held, the jury returning a verdict in ac
cordance with tbe facts, and at half-
past five o'clock, the luneral took place
under tbe charge of ibe K. S. B. Society
and was largely attended by friend
and acquaintance. Mr. Frank was the

Wasuinoton. July 5. The follow
ing are extracts from Chamberlain's
speech: The Presidential policy, If
the term is descriptive, Is an anomaly,
an offense; it savors of bad faith; it
I. . . ...... -
has a native and historical odor of
treachery and Intrigue; but, fellow
citizens, what is (he President's South
ern policy ? In poiut of pbyslcsl and
external lacts, It consists In withdrs
Ing tbe military forces of the United
Slates from tne points in boutn Caro
lina and Louisiana, where tbey had
been previously stationed for tbe pro
teclion and support of tbe lawful Gov.
ernments of those States ; la point of
Immediate, foreseen and Intended
consequence, It consists in the
overthrow and destruction of those
Governments and the snbstitntion
in their stead ot certain o ber organiza
tions. In actual present results, it oon
sUts In the abandonment of Southern
Republicans, and especially tbe colored
race, to the control and will not onlv
of the Democratio party, but of that
class at tne boutn which regarded
slaverv as a divina Institution, which
waged four years of destociive war for
its perpetuation, which steadily op
posed citizenship and suffrage for the
negro ; in a word, a class whose tradi
lions, principles and history are op
posed to every step and feature of
what Republicans call oar national
progress since 1860. , In point of gen
eral political and moral significance, it
consists lu tbe proclamation to the conn
try and tbe world tbat tbe will of the
majority of the voters of a State,
lawiuny anu regular, y expresses
is no longer the ruling power
In our states, and tbat tbe Con
slitutional guarantee to every
State in this Uulon of a Republican
form of Government, and or protec
lion against domestic violence, Is
henceforth ineffectual and worthless. I
could frame an excuse for James Bu
chanan. He was the decaying fruit of
a century of Northern subservience to
Sautberu dictation ; tbe poor dregs of
a worn-out politician whose life bad
been spent in cowortng tubmistion to
the will of those whom he was now
called to confront. But what shall be
said of this President, educated by the
events of the last seventeen years, the
long and perilous struggle to save the
Nation to lreedom and justice, the rep
resentative of a party whose life and
inspiration In every hour or Its exist
encehas been political justice and free'
dom for all American citizens : a Pres
Ident who had literally climbed lo bis
high seat over tbe dead bodies of hun
dreds of loyal men in Louisiana, who
met death in forms more terrible than
any battle-field, in order tbat tbe liber
ty of wblch tbey bad tasted might
be kept for ib.ir children. Jar. Bu
chanan could say he negotiated with
those who were in arms against us in
order tbat he might by peaceful agen
cies preserve tbe iutcgrily of the Union
and avert a fratricidal war. This Presi
dent enters upon his negotiations with
those who are In arms against the law
ful Government of Louisiana in order
I hat he might the more surely betray
the friends who trusted bim and tbe
cause be was sworn to uphold. Now,
fellow-citizens, I exorcise tbe right of
an American citizen no more wben I
say tbat a review of this chapter of our
history loaves me in no doubt that the
real pnrposo of tbe Louisiana Commis
sion and of the whole conduct of tbe
Louisiana caso, tbe President was to
accomplish the overthrow of Governor
Packard and his authority. Called upon
under the Constitution and laws of the
country as its Chief Executive to dis
charge a grand public duty, a duty es
sential to I he maintenance ol tbe tile of
the great Stale, a duty equally essential
to tbe maintenance of human rights
and the principles of the political party
which bad elected blm, the President
not only declines Ibe duly, but hestabs
Ihe State tbat sought his aid, and be
trays the men he was bound to uphold.
