--In a speech at Macon, Miss., on Friday last, Gov, Pettus said "that the same wire which conveyed the electric flash that brought the intelligence of Lincoln's election, the next instant should carry back his proclamation convening the Legislature of Mississippi, and he warned them now, if there were any members of the Legislature present, to be prepared to set out for the capital of the State the next minute."
