PUBLIC MEETING. At a meeting of the Subscribers to the Miss. Union Bank, held at the Court House in Holly Springs on the 1st day of June, 1840. On motion, Gen. James Davis was called to the chair and Gen. J.N. Phifer was appointed secretary, when the following resolutions were offered by Maj. Govan, and unanimously adopted. 1st Resolved, That we, the subscribers, for stock in the Mississippi Union Bank, at a meeting held at Holly Springs, on the 1st day of June, 1840 regard it essential and necessary for all concerned in the interest and prosperity of said institution, that it should be put in immediate liquidation, and that no further loans be granted by the Directors of said Bank to any persons whatsoever. 2nd resolved. That the Executive of this State be requested, at an early a-day as he may deem fit this fall, to call a meeting of the Legislature to take into consideration the means and policy of re-easing the subscribers for stock in said Bank, and if practicable, to mold it a State Institution. 3rd Resolved. That the Chairman of this meeting be requested to appoint three persons, whose duty it shall be, to represent us on the 8th of this month at a General Meeting to be held at Ripley, and that they be instructed to use all honorable means to carry out the above resolutions--Whereupon, Gen J.

Resolved, That nothing in the above resolutions shall be construed as to prevent any person or persons present from attending said meeting on the 8th of this month in person. Resolved, That the Editor of the Conservative be requested to Publish the foregoing proceedings. JAMES DAVIS, Cha'r. J.N. Phifer, Sec'ry.
FOR THE CONSERVATIVE. The Circuit Court for Marshall county, commenced its session on Monday (?). His honor Judge Adams presiding,--It was a busy day--the pressure of the times the general topic “what shall we do? What are we to do” seemed to be in the mouths of almost every one; the gold and silver motions found but few advocates. Amongst other things, the stockholders in the Union Bank had a meeting and adopted resolutions &c. Messrs. Wilson, McCampbell, Howry, Coleman, and Joselyn, declare themselves candidates for the office of District Attorney to fill the vacancy by the unfortunate death of our much lamented fellow citizen, Solomon Isaacs. I was somewhat astonished at the remark made by Mr. Joselyn, “that although he had received the executive appointment from the Gov. McNutt, still he hoped it would not prejudice his claims in the election.” His excellency may well exclaim with Wolsey. “Farewell, a long farewell to all my greatness,” when such friends as Mr. Joselyn are disclaiming him, with his fresh commission for District Attorney in his pocket--What say you Squire McNutt, to this your golden dreams and popularity have taken wings. A SPECTATOR.
OBITUARY. North Mt. Pleasant, Mi. May 27, John the son of Isim Bradley of this place, died suddenly last night about 9 o'clock from the effects of poison. The little boy eat what he supposed was Angelico root about sunset and at nine was a corpse. He was a promising child and has left a disconsolate father and mother to mourn his early death. On this evening his mortal remains will be committed to the silent grave, there to await the great resurrection morn when as we believe it will be reanimated and reanimated to the soul and ushered into the bright regions of an everlasting day where all is joy and peace.

A Fable – A hen once set upon a hawk's egg and hatched it. No sooner had the unnatural mother discovered the curious offspring than she whispered it these words and left it to perish: “I don't know exactly what to make of you – you are a ‘queer chicken', anyhow; and there is no knowing what you may come to, one of these days. So take care of yourself, young furzed head!” Moral. If there were no women raised, husbands would never be henpecked.
