From Mississippi — Inauguration of Governor — Election of Senator.

Columbus, Miss., Nov. 17.
--Gen. Charles Clark, recently elected Governor of this State, was inaugurated yesterday with great pomp. In his inaugural address he urges the vigorous prosecution of measures for the defence of the State, and says that sooner than submit to the foe, should the army become exhausted, the women, children, and old men will, like the remnant of Pascagoula, join hands and march into the sea.--He intends to make good use of the militia, by proper organization, and makes a strong appeal to the people to return absentees to the army.

Hon. J. W. C. Watson, of Marshall county, was elected Confederate Senator to-day, in place of Hon, James Phelan.
