iiuw wuoiu it no lorme Legislature
of Mississippi, to make a note of hand,
In this State, equal to the judgment of
Court ? We have never teen tbe good
to tbe drawer or tb bolder of a note of
potting It through a Court at a great
-waste of lime and money. If there is
food in litigation, waste of time, waste
of money, and deatructlon of credit,
there I good In lb present notes of
hand. Under tb law of tbi Stale,
there Is absolutely no good plea against
note o( hand, axcept forgery, yet tbe
holder of It must go to great expense
and wait a long Urn before be can gel
Judgmeut, and In tbe meantime tbe
maker of tbt paper may hava "fixed
things" to that a judgment will be
worthless. W do. not koow asiugl
good reason wby a not of band should
not be equal lo the Judgment of a Court,
and we do know many wby It should.
8uch a law would strengthen every cit
izen's credit, aad, poor at we are now,
good credit would help us wonderful
ly. It would give oa tbe as of money
at lower rate of Interest, It would
make a note of band mean aomethlng,
and It would save hundred of thou
sands of dolUrt now squandered in
litigating notes ol band. Some may
try to argue that such a law would be
hardship on tb drawer of note.
Wo can't see It that way. No man
need glv a not unless b want to,
and If o man glv on with lb In
tention of swindling, b I th very
fallow th law odgbt to restrain. Aa
It Is now.rascal hav great advantage.
Thy ean mak note, and then litigate
thm until they hav time to dltpos ol
their property, whll th honest nan
become th sufferer. Of course, if toy
UsSalatqr offer in opposition to tbi
scrrssUon, that onr foref.-!. dlAVt
tee th necessity of it, it will b bard
, to oonvlnc him, but w nevertheless
hop that th thinking men among our
law-maker will seriously consider

i Tb. road spoken ol above, It only
completed about twaaly mile, yet we
see that it i already carrying valu

tbrongb a country that will compare In
value to Deer Creek land about as on

much more to her than the wbole
amount VIcksburg will be asked to
five tb Deer Creek road on Its com
pletion to Boiling fork. During the
cotton season, It Is no exaggeration to
My that (be Daer Creek road would
bring lo tbs city 400 bales of cotton I
dally, and cotton aeed, sundries, and
passengers In proportion. If VIcksburg
allows 1873 to pass without doing all 1
ber power to secure Ibis road, she will

Tbe Greenville Railroad will be fin

about sixty days, and wa are reliably
informed that one of Ibe leading and
most influential citizens of Sharkey
county says If VIcksburg doe not, al
once, lake active steps to aecura rail
connection with Rolling Fork, Sharkey
county will vote her fifty thousand dol
lars In bonds to the Greenville road.
The people of that county are deter
mined lo bare anouilel to tbe river by

as a terminus, yet, if we fill to do our

Tbe city prseuls a lively appearance

Legislature bave arrived, the munici
pal election Is progressing, and aa It is
bright, anusblny weatber, tbe streets
are thronged with people. According
to law, tbe bsr-rooms are closed, and
this, tbe Times says, prevent legisla
tive and local candidate presenting
their claim In an effective manner.
There la no doubt ol a quorum being
present to-morrow, and the candidates
are electioneering lively to-day. Tber:
are plenty of predictions as to who
will be tbe successful meo, but aa every
one should have a fair sbowiog, I will
only give a list of Ibem as far as beard
