V;-!".' " Tim or nissiasippi. The white people of Mississippi have been sitting in convention at the State capital and enacted very profound resolutions, couched in unusually good 'English and and philosophy. Lamar and the leading thinkers of the Bute were gathered at the recitative of excellent political purpoaas capital, and memories of the olden time were revived when Davis and Foote and Quitinan and Amos Johnson and Prentiss and Guion and Sharkey and Yergers and many illustrious wen, whose names can never m forgotten by those who listened to theii eloquence, made the old capital resound with utterance of genius. Those who are not oblivious of the deeds and would accept the example of these great men perfected in this last plat form and injected into it every conces sion to the prejudices and instincts of the negro of possible acceptability among whites, it was agreed that par tisanship denned by race-features was most reprehenriblc, and the Forrest-Pillow bouquet and balm-of-a-tbousand-ftowers platform was approved, asserting the absolute love of one ruce for the other, and especially declaring that the definition of parties should not be that of races. The ' negro may come totho white man; the white man will never assent to negro leadership.' The negro can' see the absurd one-sidedness of the scheme of unsclfih beneficence, and it must wholly fail. It is all the worse for the country, and it is a great pity that the splendid diction and sonorous rhetoric and majestic pictures of Sir. Lamar are only illusory. The gulf that separates the races is broader and deeper than the Red Sea and Mediterranean separating black from white continents, and can only be bridged by miscegenation. Assent to this, and the dreams oi Forrest and Pillow and of those good men at Jackson, keenly anxious to escape the domination of villainy and ignorance and to reinvest themselves with robes of office and authority, will be happily realized. It is very needless for people to delude themselves. There can bo no final unity of feeling or purpose or of permanent action between two wholly distinct races. Their spheres of life and modes of thinking cannot be merged into one another, and where there is any approximation to equality in numbers the separation la u.aataHl'il those laws that give color to faces and shape to noses and outlines to taste and character.' Bo plain is this necessity for the absolute admixture of races as a condition precedent to any permanent social and political cooperation, that the very men engaged in the construction of this admirable Joiner's work of party leaders despise it when it comes from their own hands. Necessity drive them to the assertion of an absurdity. If the par-pose of the assertion be StUihedTwe will be as well pleased as Lamar, who would confer honor and gain none by his own transposition from his seat in the House io a place in the Senate bf the United States." : There is' but one question involved in these contests between the' races.' " It may be evaded and its solution postponed, and those who would effect ihU" purpose may keep it in the background ; but the white and black races tnuit be merged into one another, or lirownlow's scheme of colonization adopted. The 1 very self -stultification of the conventlonjktjacksonajwhlch asks negro co-operation, conscious, that a white qiiJ pro'tpio will never be conceded, shows the desperate straits to which taxpayers are reduced' by' the'ieign of savages.' How long it can bo borne, and bow long it should le endured, when the puqnwe is the pro- uinuun neru id uc ouin oi a race oi Ales-tiros, neither black nor white, "end the their government' by Yankee absolutism, ia the question which such conventions as that which sat in Jackson should discuss.' Properly, this convertloa would -dethrone Ames and tho negro Davis and expel the horrible mob of thieves and . robber armed with office to desolate the State ; but this ia only a question of to-day. If everything- be accomplished which ia sought to be effected by this pretty, high-sounding, balmy Pillow-Forrest platform, the evils now remedied will become more intolerable to-morrow, and the question ; still, remain absolved, must miscegenation or the aepara-?Wn vt racrs occur in Mississippi. TnE facility with which some papers can blow hot and cold,, the. honest Tdeyrayik tells us, is illustrated in the conduct of the Stated as, "which approve to-day 'and condemns to-morrow the conduct of the G ranges." Even so, and the Statxsmab may approve tu-day and condemn, to-esoj row the couduct of Governor Coke.

The Waco Em miner baa doffed its Democratic garments and become a thorough consolid ationist, and to this extent is Radicalized. But among the wiseacre wboVha7 constituted themselves the masters of Texsn mode of political thinking this thorough rejection of the basic principles of Democ- (ey ' nurgmjt)' and! a," therefore,' soundly Democratic In other words, Texan politics do not involve principles, but men.

'V, .,, ; . ,A ... , , Of rece nt years,ince our Northern fellow countrymen discovered the necessity for the conversion of free States. into plundered provinces, Southern men who never think have learned, to speak of , "the , nation.", There ia and never was, in this sense, an American '.Wion.' Toe term applied to the Union, ia a mismomer.. The Achaian league was as much a nation is that federation of which Maine and Texas are members. States are nationalities constituting an indestructible Union indestructible till free trade is established and fishing, bounty and navigation acts rescinded. .Then the Union, no longer profitable to New England, wilt . become, in its blessed .eyes, -, a rope of sand divested of, every suspicion of sanctity. State will then be integer even in the eyes of Boston, ' and Massachusetts, resuming its identity and indestructible statehood, will declare. itself the "nation," and Boston its. imperial capital. ; But if the Ezamii'tr be the organ of his Excellency or of the Democratic party of Texas, the party here has a creed of which we know nothing, and we would ask Judge "Ego" and his Excellency either to repudiate the organ or tell the people of Texas that the assertion quoted finds no approval at the hands of the Democracy of Texas. . .. Stabtmno Facts. Elliott, of the Oar tte, and Newcomb, of the San Antonio Expren, formerly partners in the . State printing, are .not- so. fond-of-eaoh other as in days, of yore. ' Last week Elliott called Newcomb the "most villainous Radical in the State," and the latter seems to entef-tain about the same opinion of the former: The cause of this ill feeling, so far as we are able to learn, runs back to the time when' the State Journal, (Radical), and the - OatetU, ' were printed on ' the same press, in the building 'now occu-' pied by the OatetU, and when the' proprietor of the two papers were partners in doing printing for the State. At that time the Legislature was Democratic, but Governor Davis and other Republicans were at the head of the several State departments, therefore the partnership of Elliott & Newcomb had been formed, we are left to believe, with the view' of combining so- called Democratic and Republican influences for the purpose of securing Democratic and Republican ' patronage. ' Everything went; on very well for a while, and probably considerable money was made, but, oh the wind np, and when the day for a general settlement rolled around, ' trouble came, and a difference of about $700 prevented' an amicable settlement, and now Newcomb is taking step to recover the amount through the courts. He states that for the $700 Worth of printing done - by the establishment, over' which the quarrel rarea.''h' never received a cent ; not only that, but he further says Elliott ran the same bill iip fronv $700 to over $1000, collected the money and kept it all, thereby swindling the State out of over $300,' and his partner out o f half bf the remaining $700. A the matter is to be adjusted at the next term of the district court, we have no comment to make, further than to remark that it look) decided! do-It. W !!

In fact they are speedily attracted by prosperity, and ar dispersed ha rapidly when want or poverty coine down npon any locality. ,.

'Already they regnlaie the ; wages of labor not only ou public works, but in factories' and in our housa- holdsv They monopolize washing and vegetable paddling; they - control cigar-making, boot . and - shoe, . underwear, eta'; they are tinsmiths, watchmakers; carpenters, broom-makers, fishermen, and gardeners; they are very expert In woollon fabric. - It ia amazing how quickly tfrry learn to as American machinery. ; Thry are excellent cook and chamber servants; they are- expert money-counter in lani.s.

The center lial birthday of Diaiel O'Uon-nell was" celebrated with .great ceremony in )ublif. Friday was the centenary proper, liut-tbe exercises began "on ThurLiy and werecontinuei through . Saturday. The 'demonstrations opened with a solemn reli-Ifious ceremonial, at which the cardinal add priest. Father Tom .Burke, preached the jiermoa ; ia the evening, a grand concert of elect Irish music wm given, and the cn-tenary ode, by Dennis FWreno McCarthy, was read. Ia the grand procession ens million men were ei pec ted U march, and at its conclusion an oration was delivered by Lord O'Hsgau. .In, tho evening, banquet and bay occurred everywhere ia Dublin. On Saturday there were excursions from Dublin to the chief scenic- and historical districts, boat races on the; river, and athletic sport of various kinds, r The second day of the celebration, falling on Friday, the Pope, in "recognition of the life and labors of O'ConnelL has suspended the law. of abstinence on that day . in all Ireland, and we can just imagine that all Ireland awoke-last Sunday morning with the liveliest headaehe that 'ever 'cracked the cranium of a fun-loving people. . T S , U " " ' ' ' 1 l Wi never supposed that the old railways would auffer the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe to be completed. If built they must own it. Ai road costing only $15,000 per mile would reduce ratea of railway charges in Texas certainly one-third or one-half, and thie would-be meet unfortunate for the Central and International lines. " It was necessary either to buy the Santa Fe road or make it cost $30,0u0 per mile. Which horn of the dilemma, or whether either, has been seized by the railway rings we are not advised,, but newspapers say Gen. Bragg was forced to resign because a sort of Credit Mobilier was organized by which the money was taken out of one pocket and put in the other,, with a- heavy per cent, added before it ..was shoved down into the "other" pocket. .i- In other- words, railway builders 1, have nice little way of trading with them selves.- .The director and contractor is the same wan, anu 'f uen a leuow ma tees a contract with himself, or his own representative, he is sure to have a good thing on one side, or the other, and generally oh bovh. Meanwhile those poor, 1 innocent people called stockholders soon see that the money is all gone and a road has been built, the miles few, the cost enormous, but the books showing a clear balance sheet and figures unable to lie. Of course, the road, valueless as a, paying investment, must be sold, and the very men who robbed it use their unholy gains to buy it. It is com monly supposed that railroads are straight; but, when in course of construction, they do have more crooked ways of progress than the immortal make that "made the track, and whether going north or coming back " no fellow could 'find out. We do not pre tend to apply any of these reflections to the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway Company, but ' present them - that those whose patriotism and ' anxiety to serve the public impels. them to "take in stock" may watch and see that they themselves are not taken - in. We live in an evil age, and there are many rogues; -an age of iron, but there is more brass. 1 1 'Cohtemptiblb. The "organ," on Satur day, contained among its local paragraphs the . following u. "We predict that the State8mait will have no further denunciation of the banking house of Forster, Lud low &. Co." . We bad regarded the above expression aa unworthy of . notice, and would pot have c given it any had not a similar paragraph appeared again on Sunday morning., On Saturday imorning General Tud. low, of the, firm .alluded to, called at this office ; and directed . attention to the " para graph given a bore, -and -said that -he and Mr. Zimpelman; members of the firm resid ing in this place, desired it to be understood that such a publication was unauthor ized on their part, and had appeared without any of their procurement. . He stated further thit both" he and Mr. Zimpelmau regarded' the article't with ' condemnation. The explanation 'was' kindly .received, and a declaration made' that 'the article was be- neathnotice. ' Owing, however, to its repi-tition, we are led ' to publish this.' The impression is attempted to tie conveyed that the Statesman has been intimidated. This paper 'has been called upon, as a matter of public interest, to discuss a matter in which the house of Forster, Ludlow & Co' appeared. It was dene as a public duty, without feeling against thl members of. that house, and, if the necessity should arise at any do so again, it will certainly be done. Whether it involves one private citizen or another, one firm or an other, the Statesman will not shrink from such duties. The insinuations of the "organ" are of the basest nature, and so we publicly regard them, and we are glad to know that Gen. 'Ludlow and Mr.'Zimpelman look upon tnem in the same manner. , . A special from Washington tells curious facts in i reference to the blackmailing of employees of the several executive depart ment, into the' payment of a per capita tax to help the Republican party to go into the canvas next fall with the sinews of war having been, abandoned. The result of the collection was email, and the ground covered wa confined to the' Interior1 and Post-office f Departments. It : leaked out how Judge Edmund, postmaster of Washington and chairman of the National 1 Executive Committee, disposed of the funds thus collected.. It appear that the money was principally used to support truly loyal Republican newspapers, 'whose editors were willing to print -editorial matter famished them from headquarter, i Whenever One of these sheet was on" its last legs, the com-mitteerouM com to its assistance. . Thus i explained now Sana Bard, the ex-pot-maater at Atlanta, has keen able to start three newspapers within a many years.

Thk only effectual way to put e stop to Cottina's operations is for the United Htes to extend our boundary to the Sierra Madre.

II beauty of scenery, bealtbfulness, tireless breezes from the sea, good society, and advantages pcident to familiarity with men and . facts .of government are worth anything' the managers of the college ahould pay Austin city some half a million dollars or such a matter for the privilege of founding It on the mountain slopes in this vicinity. i Keenly will Texans everywhere sympathize with Houston in the loss of the city mills.. The loss falls directly upon men able to bear.' it; bnt there were three hundred poor deprived of employment or of bread provided by those whose skill and labor were paid for by the mill owners. Though the mills were doing well and supplying Texas and Kansas with cotton goods, it is hardly probable that they will be rebuilt. Money is worth more to its holders than the satisfaction of feeding and clothing the poor. Two newspapers conducted by old Texans often advert to the ignorance of the "fresh importations." It doesn't take very long to learn all that these newspapers tell, and they tell all they know. Moreover, invidious distinctions, based upon prejudices thus appealed to, will operate in two directions. Very soon the new will outnumber the old dwellers in Texas, and policy suggests silence, even if ignorance impels loquaciousness. . - - ' The Walnut Valley Time begins a new career. Henceforth, if anybody, religious or secular1," benevolent or develish, wants anything printed, whether for . public or private good, it must be paid for, cash in advance. Democratic and Radical conventions, when called, must pay for notices, and so with Sunday schools and party leaders. ' Thirty five millions of acres of Texas land held by individuals pay no taxes.

Cotton was its editor and proprietor. , This i publication was in 1829, 1830-33, and was afterwards called the Ttxa Republican. Thk cattle drive of the year, as estimated at Kansas City, is 150,000. Seventy-five thousand were driven to the Platte ; 50,000 were sold to the government tat Indians, mostly going into the pocket of Brother Orville, at two dollars and forty cents per hundred. Senator Thbkman, of.
