Tbo more we heir and the more we
read about the success attendant upon
the raisins of sbeep in Ibis Stale, the
greater is our wonder tbat more of our
people uo not engage id n. it nunoi

arrangements, no costly ouilsy, nor is
there an acre or land in Hindi county
outside or tbe swamps that would not
answer for sheep ranee
Wa hear of a man io Raolrin county
who started wlih a flock ore half a
dozen sheep lets (ban a half dozen years
ago. He bat been eating goo a mutton
aver since has sold sbeep bas clothed
bit family from the sale of wool anu
to-day hai over 600 iheep on bis place,
worth $2 50 a head.
And to day there it a successful farm
er within 4 miles tf Riyraond, who,
four years ago, bought two lambs, for
which bo paid j. From tbis com
mencement ho has had these results: 1.
He has bronght to bis table 11 good
mutton. 2. He but sold 9 head, for
which he received 126. 3. He sold
wool the llrst year lo the amount of 0 ;
tbe second year to the anioun of 1 13 ; the
third year to the amount of $18 ; and now
bas bis fourth year's clip, worth about
20 total for wool,$07. And 1 His flock
now numbers 38 bead ol sheep. And
It has all been done with but a trifle ol
attention and labor, aud without ex
rente. We must repeat, ium u i
. l I. 1
strange tbat
any farmer who is at all settled, can af
ford to do without a ll Jck of sbeep.
But we have beard it said tbat we
cannot raise sheep and dogs too. Pos
sibly not. Then let us dispense with
tbe dogs tend they will be dispensed
with If tbe farmers of tbe country ask
it. Tbe doge Io Hinds county now
consume more than 25,000 additional
sheep would consume. Can we afford
loager to feed the doge nd do without

we kelieve we have a remnant of them

We in glad to be able ta Inform tbe
citizens of Vlcksburg and of Sharkey
county, that etepe have been taken
wblcb will Insure the building of a rail
road through Sharkey county from
tbie city, provided the vote isked of
the city lod county shall be favorable.
At tbe oext meeting of the Board of
Mayor and Aldermeo direct proposi
tion, we are informed, will be made,
nd the Board will be requested to take
tbe proper eteps to have this proposi
tion submitted to the voters of tbe city
it tbe ensuing election. Ae soon it
practicable i proposition will be sub
mitted to Sharkey county also. Tbe
leading features of tbe proposition tbat
the company wish submitted to tbe
voters of tbit city, we ire Informed,
are as follows : tbe city will be asked
to igree to give to tbe road on id com
pletion to Soiling Fork, in Sharkey
county, one hundred thousand dollars
ia bonds bearing 8 per centum in
terest per innum uotll paid, and to give
the road the right of way through the
city to the Comprese. On their part
the company will agree to construct
tbe road to Rolling Forkrom fAe city ;
they will agree oot to pro rate against
the city io favor of my Individual,
steamboat, railroad, or corporation In
tbe traniportation of freight md pas
sengers ; tbey will agree to locate the
depot it any suitable place they can get
in the city, aald location of tbo depot
to be at tome poiot north of Clay
street, and tbey will agree tbat tbe road
shall never be operated In any way to
militate against the interests of tbe
city. Tbe first thing in tbis proposi
tion tbat strikes tbe attention of our
readers is the absence of all risk as far
as tbe oity is concerned. If tbe com
pany fail to build tbe road, tbe city
ill have assumed no obligation
whatever. Tbe completion of tbe
road to Rolling Fork is a pre
requisite to anything asked of the
city. It seems to us that (hit en
terprise is so plain, honest and simple
tbat all can understand it, and the only
thing for the votere to decide is wheth
er or not the benefits to be derived
will be commensurate with what the
road atka of tbe city. We have often
tbown tome of the benefits tbe city
would derive from this road, but there
are others to which we have not re
ferred, and we believe there ire many
that no one can refer to, for tbey will
not be discovered until after tbe road
Is constructed. The first glorious ef
fect the road would have would be the
complete and entire restoration of con
fidence in the future of Vlcksburg.
With this valuable road in operation,
tbe depot located In tbe northern part
or tbe city, and i good portion of the
rich valley trade secured, there would
be such i revival of energy md confi
dence as was never wltneised in this
city before. Tbe building ot tbe
Natchez road by that city, through I
comparatively poor section of count ry(
bas given new life to her, and the
threatens to outstrip Vlcksburg in the
race for prosperity. Tbe building or
tbe Deer Creek road would, we feel
satisfied, enhance the value or real
estate in thia city at least one million
dollars; it would increase business in
all lines of trade fully oue-lhird; it
would tie to us forever the richest long
staple cotton-producing country on the
face of tbe globe. To gaiu all thee
immense benefits, what is Vlcksburg
asked to do? She is not asked to risk
ono dollar. She Is only atked to aid,
to a very small extent, alter
it is in successful operation, an
enterprise worth to ber eveiy
year at tbe very lowest calculation ten
fold what she is asked to give it. She
will not have to provide one dollar io
carry out ber agreement uutil one your
after the trains are running to Rolling
Fork, as it will be that long belore tho
Crat year's interest on tho bonds fall
due, and thereafter she will only have
to provide eight thousand dollars a
year, we nave ncard tne oest mer
chants iu tbe place declare tbat the city
will reap more benefit from the road iu
out ctik iu the butiuois season than
tbe amount the is asked to pay for one
year.
Some, in discussing tbis question,
have asserted that Vlcksburg would be
no
more benefited than New Orleans
or St. Louis. No one well acquainted
with tbe nature of the country through
which tbe road will run, can be im
pressed with this idea, Deer Creek,
near which stream the road will run, is
situated between tbe Mississippi and
Sunflower rivers, md cotton, freight
and passengera must it present go by
ono or the other of these streams. Ia
tbe Fill the plintert haul to tbe Missis
sippi ind ship by thi Bends packets to
New Orleane, and Vlcksburg bae no
chance at the cotton, becaose these boats
wljl tike cotton as cheaply to New Or
leans it they will to Vlcksburg. Liter
in the season the water rises, the cotton
le shipped by tbe Sou flower, bat the
most of It goes to New Orleane, be
cause the business arrangement! ire
made with New Orleant. If the rail
road wu built, ill this would be
cbinged, became Vlcksburg would
have thru Immense advantages. Her
customeri would have no river or
fire insurance to pay, no landing
or forwarding charges, and no haul
log across bad ewamp roads. She
would have every advantage with the
local trade, because persons desiring to
trade here could oomeand return in the
time day, at trifling expense com
pared lo what tbey would have to pay
to visit other cities. Tbe Deer Creek
merchants would soon find it to their
advantage to sell and buy here, and In
few years the city would Inevitably
secure tbe bulk of tbe trsde of valley
from which she now receives very,
trifling amount

Fellow-coarades of tbe Old Guard, Ladiea
and Qentlemea: i
Littening to tbe stirring etralna of
tbis martial music, ind in tbe presence
of this large audience of beauty aud
minbood, it bad almoat escaped me to
ny that I bad been called unexpected
ly and on short notice, to act tor my
comrades ot the"Uld Uuard" In accept
ing this beautiful Banner. I have no
apologiei to make, howtver, after tbe
routine manner of tome public speak
ers, but shall, as true soldier, step lo
tbe front in tbe discbirge of i pleasant
doty.
First of all, oo behalf of onr organi
zation, with feelings such ll Old sol
diers know bow to eberlsb for each
other, we tender onr grateful apprecia
tion ind sincere thsoks to oar gallant
comrade lad commander for hie gener
ous liberality. We also desire to think
oor honored friend, tbe worthy gentle
man wbo bu tendered ot tbie Banner,
for tbe eloautnt words and compliment
ary manner lo which he baa presented
It. Wltb a brilliant record 11 in
officer In time of wir, ind a character
worthy of Imitation In the pursuits of
peace, we feel I just pride lo accepting
tbis evidence of the confidence, the es
teem, ind kindly appreciation of Major
Flowerree. While we admire the cost
ly material, tbe taste of workmanship,
and tbe beauty of design, we yet re
gard In i bigber sense tbe motive tbat
prompted the girt ; and beg to give the
assurance mat wnaiever lortune may
betide ua in tbe future, each Individual
of tbis command pledges blmstlf to
see that tbla emblem of our UDlon and
standard of our organization, shall ever
remain in worthy bands.
Allusion has been made, in terms
of eulogy, to tbe chieftaiu of onr South
em hosts, General Robert E. Lee, A
name dear to every patriot's heart ! A
man or exalted patriotism ; i General
riUtitiKuitbed beyond any of bia age la
ibe art of war; an exemplar or all that
is noble and worthy of imitation as
citizen In time of peace; and as the
climax of all, an humble toldier of th
CroHl Grand old Virginia, "ibe
mother of States and statesmen," upon
whose soil the chief of the first revolu
tion tor independence waa born, the
immortal Washington, whose maulle
fell oo ao worthy son of the ssme
noble mother, the loved chieftain of
tbe boats wbo fought in tbe second
revolution for independence in Slate
sovereignty, equality of constitutional
rights, tbe liberty of self-government-Robert
E, Lee. A name tbat aball live
so long aa i Southern mother remaina
to teach the memory of great deeds to
generationi yet unborn ; so long is the
grand old mountains ot bia native
State shall lift tbelr heads to kiss tbe
passing clouds; and while every
Southern river traces Its coarse to tbe
sea.
Time would fall me, even if the oc
casion justified, te tell somotbing of the
history of Albert Sidney Johnston, the
renowned Jackson, and tcoree of otber
great names smong the dead, as well
as the living, wbote deeds are fresh in
memory.
But. I must crave tbe lime to speak
briefly of the history or the true hero
ot tbe second war or independence. A
man wbo bad but little of earthly
goods to be saved or lost, but was risb
in the love ef bis family, ana the quiet
of bis bumble home; i man wbe step
ped boldly to tbe front at tbe call of his
country, when tbe llrst tocsin or war
was sounded ; a man wbo endured the
weary march, though hungry and
thirsty, aod olten fainting by Ibe way ;
a man wboae bod was most frequently
the bard, tbe wet.ortbe frozen ground,
aud whose only watchers while be slept
were tbe si an ol Heaven ; i man wuo
was always In tho frout of the battle,
and the thickest of tbe fight, where
danger and Uottb were scorned, snd
glory was to be won ; I mm who
made Generals, and gave loera name
aud fame ; a man whose noble deeds
are writtcti iu lines of blood, aud to
whose memory the muso of history. aud
poetry, an J song will yet do Justice; a
mun who is the representative of
thousands, and tens of thousands,
ami hundreds of thousands, who
lie buried iu unmarked graves, from
iho beiguts of Gettysburg, through
every Siato, to the bauks of the Rio
Grande ; from the Missouri river in.tbe
Xortb-wet, over prairies, and hil!s, iu
valleys, aud by the river side, to tbe
horesortho Gulf. You will recog
nize this hero aa the private soldier
or the Confederate army I
01 such are many of the "Old G uard,"
and numbers of others here present
to-night. Of those who sleep in death,
Theodore O'llara, is with the pen of
Inspiration, bas written :
"The muffled drum's sad roll bas beat
Tbe soldli r's list tattoo;
No more on lire's parade shall meet
Tbat brave and lallen few.
On Kerne's eternal camping ground
Their tilent tenia are ip.ead,
And Ulory guardi with solemn round,
Tbe blvouao ot tbt dead."
"Rest on embalmed and tainted dead,
Dear as the blood yt gave:
So Impious luotstepi bert shall tread
The herbage of your grave.
Nor thall your glory ba forgot
While fame her record keepa,
Or honor pointe thi hallowed toot
Wbtre valor proudly sleeps."
"Toe taerbte mlaitral't voleelete none
Ia death I tM tetg aball tell,
Whea many vaalabed ag kaih Iowa,
The story low It fell;
Hor wreck, aor cbaagt, aor Winter's
blight,
Nor Time's reaorielesi dooo,
Shall dim one ray ef a ly light
That gill 'a your glorious tomb."
A few words lo regard to the em
blem of oor banner. The coat of
arms of Mississippi on the ground of
port white, It embtamilio of the
record of oar proud State n ider what
ever flag her eone have fooght.
Whether we recall tbe aamee of Clai
borne, Coffee, McClunsr, Quitman, and
Davis, or omers wno aball live lo his
tory ; or apeak of New Orleans, Ban
Jacinto, Monterey, Buena Vista, Cerro
Hor do, or tbe gates or tbe eapltol of
Mexico ; or tne great namoeror Ditiie-
flelde of tbe late war, tbe memory of
wb.l:b le fresh in onr minds; oo tbese
noble tone, it well as on these ensan

Fellow-comrades of tbo Old Guard
While we gszt upon this beautiful flag
aa tbe standard of oor organization, we
cannot help recalling tender memories
of the Banner under which wo onoe
marched, even though we moat say of
it lo the tweet, touching language of
song:
"Furl that Banne-l for 'Ua weary, .
Rou.d Ua ttaff 'tit drooping dreary,
Ifurl It, lold Is It la beat.
"Tak, that Banner down. 'tis Uttered,
Broken it lit ttaff and .nattered,
And tba valiant boeta art Mattered
Over whom it floated bigb.
Furl tbat Banner I true, 'tit cory,
Yet 'tit wreathed around will glory,
And 'twill live In soog and story,
Though Its folds art la tbe dust;
For lit fame oa brightest pages,
Penned by poets and by aages,
Shall go aoundlng down through aget;
Furl itt lolda, though now we mutt.
"Furl that Banner, aoftly, alowly I
Treat It gtntly, It it holy,
For it droops above tbe dead!"
And yet again, turning lo our new
stindird, we can exclaim In tbe lan
guage of the poet-priest :
"Lift it up! wart it bigb 'tit aa bright aa
of old i
Not a stain on itt white, not a blot on tbt
gold;
Tbo' tbe wott and wron0-i of many long

Look aloft I look aloft: lo! the cloud's

There's a gleam through tbs gloom thero's

'Til tbt sunburst rosplendent far, flash

Tbt Souih's dark night is waning, her diy
