Old Fosrylnns.
Vicktburg is almost surrounded by
a little river, only eighty yards wide,
bat sho has not a single bridge across
it. Even the roads to this river are
nearly impassable. What trade the
gets from across Big Black comes here
because it can get nowhere else. Just
so soon as the Natchez people extend
their railroad a little farther, this trade
will bo lost forever. At this time it
costs as much for tho plauter to brlug
a hale of cotton to this market from
beyond Big Black, as it docs to trans
port it from here to Europe.
Wc pay hundred, yes tbousauds of
dollars aunuiilly, to keep people in jail,
who could make ns at least two good
roods from here to Big Black at little
or no expense. There is more money
spent in Vicksburg for whisky in one
week than it would cost to put a good
bridi: across Big Black river at Bald
win's ferry. We have never bad a rail
road projected tbat would have done
the city more good than three good dirt
roads to Big Black would do.
We have iquaudered thousands of
dollars on the Vicksburg, Ship It
laud and Pensacola Railroad, and
the Vicksburg and Memphis Railroad,
but if others have reaped the benefit,
tho city has not. The money is gone,
we have no railroad?, and our citizens
are so disheartened that they do not
even lake measures to have good dirt
roads. Twenty thousand dollars would
build two good bridges across Big
Black, and we verily bclievo tho addi
tional trade received in one year would
pay this amount. Yet nothing is done.
Our citizens seem to bo suffering from
a chronic attack of old fogyism.
It is the Fall of tie year. Our citl
zona are aware of this fact becauso tho
whiky tastes better, and the old fogict
grow! a little louder. But the things
that come to other places come cot to
us. We have no fairs, no race track,
no anything, except an over-crop of
old fogies. If you ask ono of them
why not have a fair, ha will tell you
"the people here cau't be induced to act
iu concert to do anything." Then he
belches, gulphs down his frco luucb
and takes another drink. The city is
running to seed ; we have reduced
picayunishuess to a science. Thcro
hasn't been a 11 no horso here for thirty
years, and there is little or no Cue
stock of any kind in the county. Sumo
fow of our plautcrs, be it said to their
credit, are making some efforts to raise
stock and to farm their lands ( u
sound principles ; but tho majori
ty of them are utterly careless
as to (.Torts to improve their land?, or
to increase their live stock. We have
recently seen it announced that Clai
borne county is organizing a Fair As
sociation. Ysto county has a very
sue :et-.:ii'. one, but Vicksburg seems to
caro for nothing. The old fogies aro
sitting down on her. If we had a suc
cessful Fair Association, we would al
to have a good race track. If we bad
the latter and woulJ offer good purses,
wo could every Fall hare the city filled
with reople who would come here
from cv;r direction to attend the
ra:e. There is no disputing the fict
that this would be very beneficial to
Vicksburg in a hundred different ways.
Wo merely throw out these sugges
tions because tbe people ought to know
what is injuring tbo city and county,
but we beg to inform the old fogies
that we don't think any of tbem will
bo adopted until many of tbe old
growlers have had successful funerals.

It is Insisted tbat even if the princi

proceedings against the sureties must.it
is said, be carried along janau with
those againtt the principal obligor, and
if this Is not done the party will be re

against the sureties. This Idea springs
from a failure to appreciate tho full
force of the principles snnounccd In
tbe cases referred to; principles, wo
may remsrk, of the soundness of wbicb
we entertain not a doubt The spirit of

In the Constitution which prohibits the
Legislature from granting to the
Chancery Court tbe power fully lo dis
pose of the subject matter of any liti
gation which may arise undor any of
tne recognized beads of its jurisdic

purpose to call In tbe aid of any otbor
If, therefore, in the progress of a suit
properly pending in tbe Chancery
Court, it becomes necessary to execute
any oond whatever, there is no consti
tutional principle which will prevent
the Legislature from conferring upon
me court wmch exacted the bond, run
authority to enforce Its obligation.
This is not conferring a new jurisdic
tion upon the Court, but only arming
it with the requisite capacity to wield
ana make euective its ancient jurisdic
tion, it is wholly immaterial whether
the sureties ou tbe bond are pursued in
tbe ssmo proceedings with tbe prlnci
pal, or in a subsequent one. The juris
diction depends not upon tbe order of
the proeeeding, but upon whether tbe
bond was legally executed in tbat
Court, In a litigation properly cogniza
ble therein. Section 976 of the Code
gives the Chancery Court full jurisdlc
lion over the obligors, both principals
ana sureties, on administration bonds.
Tbe Act Is constitutional, and it is
wholly Immaterial, whether they are
pursued Cointly or separately. Decree

and Tensettee The Returns Indicate
Reduction of Four Per Cent.
Washington, Nov. 15. Tbe cotton
returns of tbe Department of Agri
culture, made during tbe first week of
November, compares tbe product in
bales to that of 1876. Tho absence of
killing frosts is noted in all tbe States.
Slight frosts In tbe more northern
districts have been favorable to an In
crease of yield by hastening tbe ripen
ing oi iate oous. uains in October
have been unusually heavy, interfering
with picking, and causing staining and
loss of fibre. Tbe losses from tbe prev
alence of the caterpillars were heaviest
in Texas, were somewhat serious in
Louisiana, and to a less extent in Mis
sissippi and Florida. The following is
the comparison by States with tbe crop
ot last year. Texas bas tbe lowest per
centage, and would be still lower out
for tbe 15 per centum incresse of area.
Arkansas and Tennessee stand high
not only by reason of a good crop, but
because tbolr yields were relatively
low last year, snd Alabama is above
100 only because her last crop was -a
very poor one. The figures are as fol
lows : North Csrolina, 91 ; South Car
otins, 90; Georgia, 92; Florida, 97;
Alabama, 105 ; Mississippi, 92 ; Louis
iana, 97 ; Texas, S2 ; Arkansaa, 110 ;
Tennessee, 115. This Indicates about
4 per cont. reduction of the aggregate
of last year, even If tbo future of the
picking season should be as favorable
as tbst ot 1376. There are also reports
of a low yield of lint to teed which
may lurlber affect the returns.
