CONCERT. It will be borne in mind that this evening the celebrated Herr Schmidt, intends giving a Grand Concert in the Ball room over Messrs. Cato & Hicks'. His accomplishments as a concertist, are too well known to need any recommendation from us, --all the beauty and fashion of our town is expected will be there.

On Monday next, Herr Schmidt will give a Cotillion Party at Mr. Cato's saloon, when all the beauty and fashion will, we have no doubt assemble. We trust that many partners in cotillions will conclude to become partners for life, and that the usual fee in cases of matrimony, will crowd into our office during the season; "cake and wine" are not bad to take these hard times, and our mouth already begins to water in anticipation of such happy consummation.

MISSISSIPPI UNION BANK. It appears that the Directory have refused to comply with the requisitions of the "Bank Law," of the last Legislature. We will give the correspondence on the subject next week.

To the Tippecanoe Clubs of Arkansas and Mississippi.

At a joint meeting recently held by the Tippecanoe Club of La Grange, Tennessee and Holly Springs, Mississippi, it was Ordered that a grand WHIG FESTIVAL be holden at the Log Cabin Encampment, Marshall County, Mississippi near the Tennessee line on the First Thursday of August next. The object of this meeting is to bring together as many of our fellow citizens as possible that we may reason with one another, as also to hear public discussion upon the all important topic which is now agitating our country; to wit: the approaching Presidential Election.

The undersigned being appointed a Joint Committee of invitation, beg leave respectfully to request that you will attend and cooperate with them at the time and place appointed.

We confidentially trust, that as true Whigs and Members of Tippecanoe Associations, you will either attend by Clubs or deputation. Respct.
