ELECTION OF MA J. GENERAL.
. In oar paper of to Jay will be found a statement exhibiting the
tesaltkof the election for Major.General in the different counties
from which affinal returns hare been received at the Department
of -State. This statement is obtained from the State Depart
ment' and may-wherefore be relied upon as correct. It appeals
that from no less tflan ttu counties to wit: Fannin Lamar
Bowie Jefferson Fayette Victoria Jackson Goliad San Pa.
wield' and Refugio official retcrni have not been received.
How and whytss. this ? The election was held on the 4th Sep.
tember last ; and a much longer time scr'ely would not be want-
ed to receive returns. of an election held in China. What has
become of the Chief Justices.and Associate Justices of these
counties ? Are they dead 7 -o? -hare they Uft I or have the peo-
ple of these counties-asy suoh officers ?. "Be this as it msy it is
alike discreditable ft both officers and people. .- . C
Surely the people can select from themselves that always
abound with the very best materials officers that know and .will
perform .their duty.. An officer who assumes a public trust and
will -not perform its duties er shrinks from its fulfilment through
partiality favor or affection ia unworthy the trust and should
be eeeafes! from every community in which he lives. We trust
--that high waters the failure of ihe-mails crsome other. casualty
has caused this. We will not believe that this failure is tnten-tioaal.

Yucatan.--Yte extract the tollowing from the
N. O. Bee of jr$ Tth ihst. "We learn by the arri-
val oCihe brig Dclpnina from Campeaehy that the
Commissioners appointed to treat with Mexico
were for the second time- on the point of embarking
for a Mexican port wheie they .were1 expected. It
is thought that a definite- treMyf. peace will beat
length negociateJ a supposition -corroborated by
the favorable disposition of the Congress of Merida
which adjourned on the 17th ult."
The Courier of the 6th insfc has the following
intelligence received by the same arrival: "The
Congress at Merida closed their session on the 17th
N6y. and the 10th Governor Mendez took charge of
the government. s. j.necunguovernor U. Miguel
Barbachano published a valedictory address in
which he recommends the acceptance of the pro-
posals madehy the Mexican Government for estab-
lishing peace. The French brig-.pr-wc Griffon
was detained at Oampeachy'itnd will probably take
the" Yucatan Commissioners again to Vera Cruz.
It is general ly thought that in hbout a month the
treaty will be ratified on conditions very favorable
to Yucatan; the conditions being the same as offered
in August last to the Commissioners by the Mex-
ican minister of war D. S. M. Tornel Cttferft.

Toihe District Atlmy of the -r- Juditud District:
Sia: It has been represented to this Department
that that branch of the laws of the Republic which
has been confided to the supervision and control of
the District Attorneys of the country has been
fcfttttly neglected and in raanv instances suffered

It is further represented that many offenders against

to escape after.arrest some through' connivance

' .' $ :"W-K Pe;ihe etinfce.vils
by their recurrence tlje Presiderif hes "instruclcd
me to issue to- the different District Aueraers the
following instruclwns: w'.
You will forth nitli place in a train of collection
all bonds and obligations forfeited reco Tniance or
other liabilities of whatever character whereou a
right oi action has accrued to the Government and
pnforce them with the Utmost rigor of the laws.
. You wilj prefer indictments against all sheriffs
jailor? justices constables or other officers who
have (either voluntarily or negligently) suffered
persdns charged or convicted of crimes to escape
from their custody and prosecute them with your
tittnost vigor. Under this denomination of offen-
ders .will be included nil officers- who 'have taken
bond which are illegal and void' on security who
was notoriously insolvent when taken.' ;
At eachand" every term of the District Court you
will move against all ministerial officers who have
failed lo collect or to pay over arry:monies accruing
to the Kpubhcor to reium nrecably to law any
arid all process in Xvhich the Government may be
in anywise interested'.- And in fine you are in-
structed promptly to take such measures as are poin-
ted out by the jaws to bring to a strict account all
delinquent officers of whatever'grade or character
eithor for mailfcasm ce or nonfeasance in theif' re-
spective offices.'" Responsibility on" the part of of-
ficers being essential to fh well being of every Gov-
ernment it is 'par.ictilarly desiiable that you iusti
tute and enforce the most rigid system.of accounta-
bility throughout all the'nfhiificatinh's ol the Gov-
ernment so far as they arc conunitied iu charge to
you: ' .
' The law. requiring the enction of a jail in each
county remains far the most part a dead letter upon
the pages of the statue book. It is time this matter
was attended to. There are fr-w things which
more assist the administration of justice' or which
are better ' Calculated to deter offenders from the
commission of crime than ihe. existence of substan-
tial jails throughout the conntry; rtow'on the other
hand when we consider the great want of these
safe depositories of criminals the great incohve-
mence.and expence attending the transportation out
prisoners irom one county to nnoii.er (pernnps a
hundred miles distant) the freque'rVt opportunities
of escape thereby affoided it must be calculated
father to encourage 'he hardened offender when he
comes to calculate (he chances of conviction and
punishment that await him.
It is feared that Distiict Attorneys have not here-
toore duly appreciated the responsibility which
rests upon them. They are emphatically the con-
servators of.the.cotintry. They have the morals of
the cpmnhuriity; in a great measure under their
supervision; and aside. from the enforcement of ihe
criminal laws they have the whole revenues of the
Government more or less under their control.
Their vigilance faithfulness arid efficiency arc
therefore of the last importance to the welfare of
the country. -
In all well-regulated communities it :has been
found necessary' to the preservation of order to
the peade harmony -and tranquility of 'society that
the municipal Jaws by whieh those communities
were governed should be rigidly' observed or en
forced. If this rejrjafk be true in regard to.those
governments wnicn nave existeu lepg enough tc
have reduced the elements of society to order sys
tern ana euieq-poiiey; wuii now raucn more tore
win it apply to a community such as oars compose
of strangers from many different nations of th
earth unknowing and. unknown differing from
eachojherin manners customs language and ed-
ucation' with no ties of kindredfriendship or unity
of sentiment; thus constituting a hete'rogenious massi
ui uisuuruum uraieriuis u is not reason uuiy jy-pe
expedted thatihby will feel Ihdfnsel ves connected
together by those ties of common interest or kin-
dred feeling which bintf society together m those
older long-established -and well-organized com-
munities. The obligation restnig upon the' Gov-
ernment in such a state of sociSty to see that the
criminal laws of country.are strieffyvenforced is
enhanced in a ratio proportionate to the increase o!
crime which is the never-failing concomitant of
this elementary state .of government. This is
necessary no less for the protection of the peaceful
law-abiding portion of the community than for the
punishment qf the dissolute and the vicious. The
criminal" laws of the Republic have been so wholly
neglected or so shamefelly relaxed iu their opera-
tion that the conviction has forced "itself upon the
minds of the community generally that -it. is use
less io ormg onenpers.againsc lite laws before the
court of the country as they are' almost certain to
escape the punishment due to their crimes. Andl
am firmly convinced that.it ja chiefly this sentiment
thus impressed 'updn'the minds of the people that
has been oneprolifijj source of the evils which have
resulted to 'the country from what is termed "zbg-
ULATfNo" which has become so fatally.prcvolent
ill many portions of the Republic -ft is my'deci-
ded opinion thaHhiais one great reason why 'order
has been overthrown anU'siojence; outrage htld
crime have prevailedto so aTarming'an extent; and
which in various places have risen to so fearful a
height as seriously to threaten an entire subversion
of the civil institutions of the country. Among the
numbers of the vicious and unprincipled there are
also many good men who have engaged in these
unlawful and disorganizing undertakings and who
had they had confidence in the administration of j
justice by the courts of tlie country woulghayel
rjeen amongst ine most exemplary; peaceiui and
law-abiding'citizens in the"tibmmurfity. '
It is time for this state of things to. end; rfhe reign
of violence' turbulence' .and phisjoal 'force must
cease; orderly government- and the aws must pre
vail. To; the DistricrAttoiiieys df thd Republic is
confided ttiimporlfthtnhd responsible duty ofex-
'ecutin these injunctions and of enforcing ihe
laws generally; and. they will be Held to n strict ac-
countibrjhe execution of the" same.
A strict and rigid enforcement of the laws for a
short fTnte will bring back order quiet and harrao-
nvto our distracted countrv: it will'.resrore con
fidence at home; and Jnspjre it nboadin ourinsti-
tuitops.v - We shall theabe m. n few- years what
