General Orders No. 6., Head Quarters, Jackson, Miss., June 19th, 1838.

The election for Brigadier General of the 2d Brigade of the 4th Division, held by order of major general E. L. Acee, on the 23d and 24th of April last, was illegal. Brigadier general James Carter will, therefore, continue in the office until the expiration of four years from the date of his commission.

The elections held on the same days for col. commandant of the 19th, 28th and 38d Regiments, by order of brigadier general James Carter, being also illegal, the colonels commandant of said regiments previously elected will continue in command for the period of four years from the day and date of their several commissions.

The election of lieutenant colonel and major of the 19th regiment, held at the same time, was illegal, and officers previously elected will continue in office for the term of four years from the date of their several commissions.

It is the decision of the Commander-in-chief that all officers, elected to fill vacancies, continue in office for the term of four years.

The 43d section of the 3d Title of the “Act to regulate the Militia of the State” provides, that “It shall be the duty of every officer on receiving a resignation to forward the same, with the reasons assigned therefore, to the Adjutant General, who shall immediately lay the same before the Commander-in-Chief; but no officer shall be deemed out of service until he has received notice of the acceptance of his resignation by the Commander-in-Chief.” No resignation will be accepted unless it is shown that the officer offering to resign has performed distinguished services, or is incompetent.

The several Colonels Commandant, assisted by the Lieutenant Colonels and majors, are ordered to lay off their respective Regiments into Battalions and Beats. The Beats will be numbered alphabetically, and laid off so that no beat shall contain less than forty-eight nor more than one hundred privates; and the colonels commandant, are required to order elections and have their several regiments fully officered within three months from the date of this order.

”Whenever any company beat shall neglect or refuse to elect officers to its command, the colonel or commandant of the regiment to which said company may belong, will nominate a fit proper person to take command of said company until such election shall be held; and such person so nominated shall, by a warrant from under the hand of the colonel or commandant of the regiment, be appointed captain by brevet, and shall, during such brevet appointment, have and exercise all powers and duties of captain of the company, to the command of which he may be appointed, and shall be liable to all the penalties imposed by law upon captains for refusal or neglect to discharge the duties of their office.”*

The commander-in-chief is now prepared to furnish volunteer Infantry companies with muskets and accoutrements complete, and expects to be prepared to furnish volunteer Rifle and Cavalry companies with rifles, swords, and pistols in a few months. There are now no restrictions as to the number of volunteer companies in the several regiments – commissions will, therefore be furnished to all the officers of such companies, and arms delivered on the production of the certificate of the Colonel Commandant as required by law.

The safety of the country required an efficient organization of the militia, and the commander-in- chief relies confidently on the zealous co-operation of every Officer in effecting this desirable result. Alexander G. McNutt, Commander-in-Chief, Charles M. Price, Adjutant General, M. M., Jackson. * see sect. 24th of the act approved Dec. 25, 1833.

To the Patrons of the Mirror – The undersigned, having purchased of Messrs. Pattillo & Curtis the sole proprietorship of the Mississippi Mirror, a newspaper; together with all the news and job printing materials of the establishment; has sold one half thereof to Mr. George Howe, late publisher of the Yalobusha Pioneer, and in conjunction with him this day commences the publication of a new weekly journal – The Marshall County Republican, and Southern Free Trade Advocate. The Mirror is discontinued; in place of which, those subscribers for it who commenced with the commencement of the 2d volume, will receive the Republican. This arrangement is rendered absolutely necessary – in order that the business of the late publishers and that of the present, may be kept clearly and distinctly disconnected. The present proprietors assume no liabilities of the office contracted previous to its purchase by the undersigned. All advertisements and job work, contracted for subsequent to that purchase, must be accounted for to the present proprietors; as also all subscriptions commencing with No. 1. Vol. 2. Mississippi Mirror. Robert L. Pegues.

Southern Meeting – Proceedings of the citizens of Marshall County, Miss., at a meeting held in the town of Holly Springs, on the 28th of July, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of sending delegates to the Convention of Merchants, to be held in Augusta, Georgia, on the 3d Monday in October next.

Col. A. R. Govan being called to the chair, and Col. W. H. Bayliss appointed Secretary, the meeting was called to order.

On motion of Maj. Barton, the following gentlemen were appointed a committee, to draft resolutions for the consideration of the meeting, (viz.): Gen. J. Davis; Maj. Barton; Mr. Armsted; Mr. Isaacs; Mr. Harley; Maj. Coopwood; Judge Huling; Col. Mathews; Col. C. Kyle; Maj. S. Holland.

The Committee having retired, reported the following preamble and Resolutions, which were unanimously adopted:

Whereas the great and important agricultural and commercial resources of the Southern States, have for many years been diverted, by partial legislation and other pernicious influences into unnatural channels, benefiting and enriching the citizens of a distant portion of the Confederacy to the great detriment and injury, of the prosperity and the best interests of the people of the South, and whereas it has become palpable to every reflecting Southerner that there is no necessity for the continuance of the dependence of the great staple growing States upon Southern capitalists and factors and whereas it is evidently for the pecuniary political advantage of the Southern States that such unnecessary subjection to a remote section of the Union should cease, - that the monied system of the South should be emancipated from Northern domination and that Southern commerce should be made to flow in its natural and proper channels.

Therefore be it Resolved, that we most heartily approve of the object of the Merchants Convention recently held in Augusta, Georgia.

Resolved. That we deem it important that Mississippi be represented in said Convention at their adjourned meeting on the 3d Monday in October next.

Resolved. That this meeting appoint Ten delegates to meet the delegates from other portions of the County of Marshall, in Holly Springs on the 3d Saturday in August, to appoint delegates to said Convention.

Resolved. That the other parties of the State of Mississippi be requested to take the necessary measures to appoint Representatives to said Convention.

On motion the following gentlemen were appointed delegates, to meet the delegates from other parts of the County, for the purpose specified in the 3d resolution under the preamble.

E. Potts, O. D. Watson, T. Grier, S. Mathews, A. P. Armsted, C. L. Thomas, J. Lewellen, T. L. Tredwell, S. Harris, M. Byad.

On motion of Maj. Barton, it was Resolved. That the proceedings of the meeting be signed by the President and countersigned by the Secretary, and that they be published in the Mississippi Mirror, and that the meeting be adjourned sine die. A. R. Govan, Prest., W. H. Bayliss, Secretary.

A Cane-Brake – A Mr. Henry Cane fell from his horse on Tuesday, in Hardin County, and broke both legs. - Prentice

A thunderbolt discharged its lightning to the top of a tree within 10 to 12 yards of the house of Jos. G. Boon in Tipton county, on Thursday last, and most shockingly shattered a ladder, very innocently reposing against the trunk of the tree. It woke up pretty tolerable quick as Pickwick would say, after the moulten fluid lit upon it. We were standing within ten yards of the tree, and never saw a ladder move much faster. We think that streak would have hurried the renowned squirrel that once beat a streak of lightning from the top to the bottom of a tree, by streaking it straight, whilst the lightning followed the winding grain of the tree, he at least would have had his tail feathers singed. There had been a slight shower, but the clap of thunder that unrolled the lightning, was the only one audible. This is the first instance within our memory of the electric fluid descending from the clouds upon a ladder. – Memphis Inquirer
