U. .0. ZEN/IVA DEAD . —Hon. 4iTESEE
SPEIGHT, U. S. Senator' from Mississippi,- di
at his residence in Lownds, on the Ist inst.—
He was a native of North Carolina, had resi
ded in Mississippi, !about ten years, and raised
himself, by his own exertions and strict Demo
cratic principles, to a seat in the U. S. Senate.
His ? term of office, did not expire until 1851.
MIV" JEFFERSON DAVIS, of Mississippi, ha
beer( appointed Brigadier General in the place
of Gideon J. Pillow, promoted. Mr: Pavia is
a soli -in-law of G eneral TaylOr, and was the
distinguished leader of the gallant Mississippi
ans n the battle 'of Buena Vista.
edersil Lle” 44 Owned Up,"
The " Federal organ" of this' place, which
has been wonderfully annoyed of late because
we have seen fit to expose some .'of the faults
of its " ruin" candld i te, and especially his vote
fora tax on tea and coffee, was out again last
weett brim full of indignation, because we had
propounded some questions in conneetiork with
the- subject that compelled. it •to either ac
knowledge the allegation true, or deny it< in the
face of the most incontrovertible truths.;, The
predicament'we knew to be an unpleasant one,
and;we are not surprised that our neighbor be
came considerably " stirred up" by being thus
draivnsinto a correct answer. But as there
was; no backing oat, after prating for awhile al
bout " infamous. falsehoods," " positive testi ! .
molly," "miserable. subterfuges," " prevarica—
tion" and the like Woke phrases, he iat length
" owned up" all
,we desired—what, in; &et, he,.
has beep laboring for weeks, withazeal wottby
a better cause, to disprove. We pay lie ad,
snits the charge—for he has neither denied
attempted to disprove it. Does he deily that
- the !bill in question taxed tea and coffee T No :
he now admits it, although a reference to his
fileS a few weeks hack will show that he deni
ed oven 'this* acknowledged truth. And does
he deny that Gen. Irvin voted for that bill rip
on its final passage? No, indeed : this be bar
note attempted to refute ! Put that and that
together, and what does it prove ? Clearly
that he voted to tax tea and c flee, as we.have
all 'along affirmed. These are he faets,.'dmwu
• , ~
im our neighbor, :by the gre test effort, • tis
true, but of none the less eons plenee for that.
Now how does e get ar.ui• them ?;
by the " stop thief cry olf "subterfu g e"
and " prevarication :" But Ihe may thih it
" - sitbterfuge" or any other fuge he pleases, if
it i$ any more palatable ; his own writhing and
extra-indignation; are conclusisie - eyidenee that
it is exceedi gl:: unsavory .andrembarrassing - at
33ut the most laughable and absurd feature
of the whole, is our neighbor'3 ; pretentions that
Gcin. Irvin " did ;all he could to oppose that '
ta; from. beginning to end." [ This announce
nuint, taken in connection with his statement
seteral weeks since, that he cUst no vote " di
reCtly. touchingthe question of tea and coffee,"
will certainly berich to his readers, and we May t
ad i ii ; from a discepancy at once awkWard. and
unenviable. [lei admits that Gen. Irvin "dod-
Oil" the vote upon the only que r stion,directly
toitching tea and coffee, and yet boasta - of hav
ing proved by i‘ members of Congreis, who
",izoted side by side-with hint;"" that he did all
hei could to oppose such a tax. Marvellous
comfistency. Terrible opposition, to reCord'his
vote upon every question immediately preceding
and f&llowing the only on directly touching.
'this tax, and, yet when that question ;,iii about
to be tested, to absent himself from his post, or
otilerwiie dok, , the responiibility I Btu% op.
pOsition is; to say the least' very queStionable, -
and we opine our Inei4bor will find it a very
di)licult task to onvincie even hinting much
mare the peoploief Pennsylvania, thati'dodging

WO a very strong oppositihn to the measure.
But why need tie say more? . Has not our I
