that said committee have exercised
some diligence, but in our judgment
have not exhausted the subject. We
recommend tlie continuance of said

Gov. Lowry's Message to the Leg
islature is entirely too voluminous
for us In reproduce it. He devotes
the major portion of it to the subject
.ii" finances, and revenues: He
that if lho law-makers with tile
consent of the of the executive have
heretofore been loo liberal in the sup
port of educational and charitable
institutions, that this support can be
reduced,or in the case of the school p
colleges and benevolent iiisli: utions,
entirely withdrawn. The Governor
is strictly in favor of enforcing tie
collection of the poll lux, «» the de
linquent polls amount 70,000 or 8(1,OfiO
dollars per annum. He is In favor
of making failure to pay poll-tax a
misdemeanor puni.-hable by fine and
imprisonment, and lie recommends
an amendment to the Constitution
making the payment of the poll-tax
n condition of the right ot suffrage.
He calls attention to the fact that the
judiciary expenses of a county are
the heaviest, brought about by th
t rial of misdemeanors and petty of
fences in the Circuit Court. He is id
tile opinion that the district attorney
should be paid stated salaries and re
deye no other fees. This same re
commendation was made by the
Governor, two years ago. Ho en
dorses the present system of leasing
the convicts, and informs the Legis
lature that inasmuch as the State, 1ms
already leased the penitentiary and
convicts to the Gulf and Ship island
It. R. Co., for a term of years, thi
iract cannot lie set aside nr cancelled
unless the lessees have violated their
terms and conditions and thereby
forfeited their right under the lease.
Circuit Court lias been in session
this week, Judge Roane presiding
with his usual impartiality and abil
ity. The docket is the lightest known
for years past. The petit juries wen
discharged oil Wednesday, us there
was virtually nothing for I hem to do.
The only case of importance on the
erlminui docket, disposed of, was the
slate vs. Tom Young, charged with
murder, defendant plead guilty, to
manslaughter, and was sentenced to
twenty years in the p-ntitenliary.
Our new District Attorney, J, j.
.Slack Esq. goes at. his part of the
business like "an old hand at the hoi
lows" and gives sufficient evidence
of his ability to fully meet all -neces
sary requirements in (lie discharge
of his oliieial duty. Mr. J. C. Perry,
ujr new Circuit Clerk, is also up tn
the mark and gives general satisfac
tion. The ease of Wright Williams
colored, oh urged with th ■ murder of
Richard Ta.vlor colored, is set for next
Monday, and a special venire drawn.
It causes the people of this Htule a
great mortification to know that Gov.
Lowery's message does not suit, the
Memphis Appeal. The Appeal has
been taking an nv'i-r-xafilous interest
in our state affairs for some time
past, and we fondly hoped that all
our olHeial i had been o thoroughly
drilled hy this self-cons'.itutedmeteor
as to never transgress Its highest
wish. We are therefore pained to
note that Gov. Lowery bus actually
delivered himself of u message to the
legislature that utterly fails to come
up to the Appeal's standard. We
would suggest to the Appeal that. It

session of the legislature—if no long

Eastern journals as a general rule
lean twoard the romantic, while the
Western papers are more mi flic acj.
entitle order. There is an old suying
that "history repeats itself,god this
seeips to be true in this instance.
The romance first originated iu the
East, but after a lapse of time the
great West was the chosen field of
all fictitious literature, while the
East produced the solid and practical
works. Attain, in the mutability <rf
human affairs, has a change been
produced and while the W
world is beginning to furnish sclen.
tific investigation, the land toward
the rising of the sun is again return,
lug to the romance and the novel,
Thischauge is just beginning to be
perceptible and is taking place grudu
ally, but steadily. The reason for
this is found in the fact that the
American people are restless and
ever demanding a change. This
demand for something new, some
things different induced the novelist
of to-day to abandon the wornoui
themes of the West and to seek new
scenes and characters for the plots
of bis novels. The roason that H,
Hider Haggard's novels are so popu
lar at present is, that he, realising
the change in the popular taste, lias
endeavored to satisfy the new de
mand by his latest works. But we
are getting off the subject which w»
started out to dscuss. We would
favor, as some of the college Journals
are doing, a mixture of both the scien
tific and the romantic. A paper
which has a harmonious blending
of both kiuds of article is the one
that is the most interesting to all
classes of readers. Do not try to.
select subjects that will please every
body for you will end by pleasing
nobody, but use your judgment In
getting up matter lor your puper and
make such selections as will make a
pleasing and harmonious whole,
whether the articles be hnmerous,
fictitious or practical.—A. & M. Col
Last week we publiahed an ac*
oeunt of a yield of 800 pound* ot Hat
from 2000 pounds of seed cotton
in Yazoo county, being 40 pounds of
lint to the .hundred of seed cotton.
J. W, White, of tills county, teelsus
that he beat the above record this
year. He raised 4328 pounds of
Peterkin cotton which yielded four
bales, aggregating In weight 1868.
S ounds. Deducting 88 pounds for
aggingand ties, there still remains
over 11 pounds of lint to the 400 of
seed cotton. From the same seed
his son-in-law, Mr, Joe Gariagus,.
of Winston ooiraty, raised. 1138
pounds of seed cotton which yielded
a bale weighing 478 pounds.
Mr White says that yield per acre
of Peterkin cotton is fully as much
as any kind lie ever saw grown..
Everybody who has tried the Pe
terki n cotton say it pays better than
Every farmer should supply him
self with some of the seed and keep
them pure. By doing so our whol»>
county would, In a few years, be sup

would give iietter returns for the

Thoro to one feature of the Gover
nor's message from which we
dissent—his advice to take the
salaries of the District Attorneys on
the violators of the law and impo»
them as burdens upon the tax-pay
ers. The salary system was tried In
this Slate since the war and was soon
repealed. The complaint against the
system was that the District Attor
neys drew their salaries and contin
ued the criminal dockets and thus
piled up the costs on the State. Ihe
present system Is working well, and
as the State Treasury . has all the
burdens and more now thau it isabie
to bear, we think it Inexpedient to
try this experiment now.—State
