Tub St. Loui Globe-Democrat,
isper that scruples at nothing that
will furoUh a paragraphic slur on the
Ic'outh, ): "Kemper county, Mis-iis
slppi, rejoice over tbe re-nomination
c f Got. Stone, and may be expected to
cast a solid vote for him. Gov.
Stone' chief claim to a re-nomlnatlon
wai hi masterly inactivity when the
Democratic party roie at one man to
murder the only Republican who had
the courage to avow hi tentiments.
Kemper county is not flourishing like
a green bay tree, but the integrity ol
it Democracy U maintained." The
Globe-Democrat know that the vote
of Kemper county was cast solidly for
Gen. Lowry first, last and all the time,
:n onr lata Convention,- and knows
further, that Governor Stona bad
no more business Interfering with
Kemper county matters than the editor
of the Globe-Democrat himself. Tbe
duties of the Executive, Judicial and
Legislative Departments of onr State
Government are sharply defined in onr
organio law, and Gov. Stone could do
nothing more than he. has done in re
gard to the Kemper county murders,
without violating bis oath of office.
There are some paper, however, who
will Insist that the people are too pig'
headed to know that such is the fact.

At the call of the President for those

to their feet. It was a notable fact
that the best and most reliable labor

There is no reason why this country
should contiuue to be vexed even for a
period of a few year, with the chron
ic agitation of that question, as In Eu
rope, for as we remarked tbe other
day, there is no real surplus of labor in
the United States. Vast areas of the
fairest and most fertile lands on the
globe, blest with a genial and health
ful climate, are lyiug idle in the South
awaiting only the hand of tbe indus
trious husbandmen to develop their
fruitfuluess. They aSfjr.l au outlet

tbe absence of any spe:iai organizs

therefore, that tboy will aot neglect

tbe labor question at the North and
the restless, '-prospecting'' spirit that

If Mississippi will immediately take
advantage of the present state of affair,
she can have ber "pi:k and choice" of

In other respects, there is abundant
reason for rejoicing in the establish
ment of Democratic ascendency In our
State Government. Obedience to law
Is tbe rule, and crime the exception.
There is no rebellion against constitu

enjoyment of a State Government of

the peace and execute the law. Tbey
are conscious that as long as tbey are
permitted to enjoy tbe right of sell-
government the State will not preient

wealth appealing to the United State
Government to perform police urvice

The Democratic party stands pledged
to continue tbe reforms so suspicions'
ly begun. To this end, it must preserve
its organization. The disci) line neces
sary to concerted action, in the choice

Transfer of I.matulus.
Arrangements have been made by
Cap:. Flanagan, tbe Sheriff of this
county, for the transfer of tho caecs of
lunacy no w under his charge to the In
sane Asylum at Jackson. The 3
o'clock train, yesterday eteniny, car
ried out "Uig 'Mack," to be followed
in a few days by Mrs. Pugh, both of
them going directly under the charge
of Dr. W. M. Compton, who is to
widely and favorably known for bis
so per b management ami skill in the
discharge of the laborious duties lu
the State Asylum. The three remain
ing cases, oue woman and two men,
ail colored, will be exchanged in a
short time for other wtw are consid
ered harmless, the law- of tbe State
making it obligatory on the counties
lo keep a'.l such cae a: their own ex
pense. These, we urn!' -stand, will be
of such a nature (hat i! ir transfer to
the county Poor-bouse will be so easy
ma'ter, is tbey are peilectly docile, re
duire no wa'cnnig, ana are ported ly
harmless. Capt Flanagan, by hi
anietiv ridding tbi community of
these ceres, which have exercised our
citizens so long : deserves the thanks
of all, and by placing them under the
mrnaeement of to eminent a pnytician
a Dr. Compton ha proven himself to
be. has probably been tbe indirect
means of restoring tbe poor sufferers to
the greatest of all God's gifts, that of
reasoning human oeings.
Quite a large crowd assembled on Jack
son street yeeterdsy evening, to wit
ness a race between Mr. John Dent snd
If r. John Grammer. The eontettants
were on tbe ground punctually, and
shortlv after 6 o'clock, a distance of 150
yards wss stepped off, the racer placed
in position, and lUned. They kept
close together for about 75 or 100
yard, wben Grammer took tbe load
and kept it to tbe close, beating bit op
ponent several feet. We are glad lo
tee to much interest manifested in
athletic tnort, and if all contest were
conducted in tbe manner of tbe one
yesterday, tbey wonld be beneficial to
the community. The crowd was very
orderly and ' good-natured, and tbo
vouug men who ran the race did them
selue credit by tbe gentlemanly man
ner m tliicli the one bore lucccst, and
tbt oi;r acknowledged defeat.

Early yesterday morning, the Commit

at the depot of the Vicksburg and Me

where they were to meet the regular
passenger train containing the party,
As tbe train approached, Jones n.mll'

tbe band performed one of their finest
pieces, while tbe delegation from our
city waved their hats, and bid their

Ibe car were toon twitched so as

At 2 o'clock a fine dinner was set for,
