We are authorized to announce Col. George A. Wilson, as a candidate for Attorney General for the solicitorial district composed of the counties of Marshall, Desoto, Lafayette, Panola, Tunica and Coahoma, at the election by the people for that office.

A ladies' FAIR in aid of the Episcopal Church, will be held on Monday next, one door west of Messrs. Niles, Elder & Co. to commence at 2 o'clock, P.M. There will also be given a supper for the same object, in the same building, at early candle lighting.

Mr. Joselyn of Lafayette, has been appointed by the Governor, District Attorney, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Solomon B. Isaacs, Esq.

AMOS KENDALL.  This Incubus that has persecuted American Liberty so long, has at length resigned his office as Postmaster General, he says he has not made a fortune from public employment, it may be true, but we rather suppose 30 or 40 sections of Land in the most fertile portion of Mississippi might be called a tolerable fortune.  He has come to the conclusion (doubtless from clandestine experience) that it is more congenial to his health to exit the Extra Globe.

New Arrangement -- The gentlemanly and enterprising contractor (J.H. Perkins, Esq.) of the line between this place and Memphis, has made an arrangement to reduce the fare and shorten the time several hours between places.  He has one of the best stocks in the southern country.

POSTPONEMENT.  The sale of Real Estate of Jas. Blanton, deceased, will be postponed until the 15th of June 1840.  WM. B. KIMBEEL, Ad. of James A. Blanton, dec'd.

MEMPHIS AND HOLLY SPRINGS STAGE LINE.  The undersigned would respectively inform the traveling public, that he has purchased Jefferson’s splendid and swift line of four-horse mail coaches, which will run as usual from the Exchange Hotel, Memphis, to Holly Springs, via North Mt. Pleasant, through in one day.  Leaves Memphis Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 6 A.M., returns Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 6 P.M.  At Holly Springs this line intersects the main line through Lagrange on to Bolivar and Nashville.  It will also connect at Holly Springs with the main line leading to the south, viz; through Wyatt, Oxford, Coffeeville, Grenada, Carrolton, Lexington, Benton, and to Yazoo City.  There is also a line in full operation from Lexington through Canton to Jackson, Miss, thence on by Clinton and Raymond to the Vicksburg railroad; likewise to line from Jackson through Gallatin to the Natchez railroad.  Passengers taking the stage at Memphis will always arrive at Jackson, Miss on the fourth day without night travelling, and will always find a safe and speedy conveyance to the south any distance they may desire to travel.  The coaches and stock on the above lines are inferior to none in the United States and every possible attention will be paid to the patrons of the line.  JOHN H. PERKINS.
