native congenial solitude. From the Clarion. The following letter from Dr. Wm. M. Coinpton, Superintendent State Lunatic Asylum which our Mississippi exchanges are requested to publish fully explains itself: Mississippi State Lunatic Asylum.? Jackson-, Miss. Aug. lDth, 1870. $ Editor Clarion : WUl 3'ou please notify your readers, and request your exchanges to publish the notice, thatjthe "Mississippi State Lunatic Asylum'' is now, and will continue to be crowded to its utmost capacity. As fast as one goes out another comes in. I make this request for the reason that the friends of many of the unfortunate insane acting upon the supposition that there is room enough for all here, on many occasions applied with the patient at the door. The Law requires that the Superintendent shall ''receive the insane in the order in which they apply," and however mortifying it may be to me, I have been compelled to turn many away after they have spent much time and money, besides incurring a great deal of trouble, in bringing the sufferer here. Please sr.y to those who have insane friends that, if they will notify me, by letter, l will enter the application at once on the list, and will inform them at the earliest jiossible moment when the patient can be recieve.l. Very respectfully. Your ob't serv't. Wm. M. Comptox, Sup't. The Clarion Answered. UJ. E. Pegues was elected secretary at a straightway party. of now indication correcting ranks. there be it.
