Educator and Statesman.

The Chickasaw Messenger publishes the following as a copy verbatim et literatim et punctuatim of a letter written by the Radical Senator from that District to one of his constituents, during the late session of the Legislature:

The Messenger says that while the "Sent" (scent?) is not engaged in the arduous duties of lawmaker, he employs himself teaching a public school, at least he is on the pay roll of the County Superintendent in that capacity.
