Tight times in Mississippi.

--The money pressure appears to be pretty tight in the northern counties of Mississippi. The following is from the Aberdeen Conservative:

‘ We attended the Sheriff's sale on Monday last, and were perfectly astonished to see such a sacrifice of property. One gentleman actually purchased one hundred and sixty odd acres of land for $40; another bought a half interest in a brick law office for $50; a $125 buggy was sold for $30, and other property sold equally low.
