THE RULE WHICH SOCIETY
There is some truth in the following
paragraph, which we clip from that
ably-conducted journal, the Pointe
Coupee Echo :
In these enlightened and modern
times individuals are only appreciated
in accordance to their wealth, regard-
less of the means by which THEY obtained
it. A female, if poor, though. her
nane be as spotless as an angel, is
spoken of lightly, and her actions
scrutinized with a critic's eye: but if
shes an heiress, she becomes as
C esar's wife, above suspicion. A man,
if poor, dishonesty and idiocy follows
as a natural consequence,: but if
wealthy, he becomes the personifica-
tion of every noble attribute which his
nature is suspectibl e of. Such is not
the theory of society, but we assert it
to be the rule which society practice;
we have witnessed its exemplification
in numberless instances."
RIGHTS OF WOMEN.
We hear, says an exchange, of a pe.
tition in circulation, urging that no
Widow shall be allowed to niarry un-
til the single ladies are disposed of.
This is an expression of farewell,
familiarly used by all classic people,
says an exchange paper; but its deri-
vation, which is a beautiful one, is not
generally known. It comes from the
French words, A Died--to God; im-
plying, I depart from you, but leave
you to the protection of, God.

following are the States; which have
chosen Whig majorities in their Con-
gressional delegations :
Yermont,- Massachusetts, New Jer-
Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Florida,
North Carolina, and Ohio.
Here we have these States sure for
the Whig Presidential candidate,
counting FLORIDA among the num-
ber, though we under stand the mlem-
ber from that State to be pledgedto

Congress the Whigs can count wit.i
anythitig like confidence only upon
Maryland, and they are not sure of
her. But even if they should keep
Florida, and carty three other States,
they would not be able to elect their
candidate in the House, as they then
would have only 14 States, and, with-
out the admissions of Wisconsin, the
number required to elect a President
will be 15-with her admission, I~e.
There will be a small chance for the
Whigs in the House, as there will be
before the people. The result in
Tennessee and Rhode Island has set-

in the House-namely, New Hamp-
shire, Rhode Island, and Georgia.
Their votes, though counted, cannot
be given for any candidate before the
House; that is to say, each State is
counted, and the successful candidate
iTmust have an absolute majority of all
the States in the Union. Such was the
course pursued in 1801, when Mr.
Jefferson was chosen on the 36 ballot-
It is not yet certain whether any
party will have a majority of the
States in the Housd. The Democracy
have the best chance. The following
are their States :
Virginia, Alabama, Missouri, Indi-

ansas, Tennessee, Illinois, Iowa, Tex-
Thus, the Democrats already are
certain of the same number as the
Whigs, allowing Florida to the latter.

the first regiment of Mississippi vo-
lunteers-the unflinching supporter of
the well known principles of the Dem-
ocratic Party, and an advocate of a
vigorous prosecution of the war,
forced upon us by Mexico, notwith-
standing the magnanimity of our Gov.
