TUESDAY MORNING. ...APRIL 2?, 1857.
I SHAM G. HARRIS,
, . DEATH OF SOS. THOS. B. CABEOLL,
Our whole community have been affected
DainfuIIj at the sudden death of Hon. Thomas
B. Carroll, Mayor of the City, which met
ancnoly event occurred at nis residence on
.Hernando street, on Sunday evening at 10 min
mes'to 4 o'clock. The disease -which Urmina
ted. so fatally to one who had hitherto beer
cessidercd in tne most robust nealtn. was in
flammation of the bowels. Its ravages were
fearfully rapid, Col. Carroll having only
been confined to his room about five days.
Thus has our city been deprived of its Chic,
Magistrate by the hand of death, his familj
of a most kind, affectionate and devoted head,,
and the numerous warm personal friends of
the deceased of a friend and companion, true
as steel in every emergency of fortune and
ready to risk everything in their defense.
Col. Ca&bwll was the second son of the late
Hob. AV.m. Cakroll, Governor of Tennessee:

at the University of Nashville, and soon after!

inherited the warm, impulsive and fearless
qualities of his father. Frank and outspoker.
in all bis dealings with men, he sometimes
made enemies by the very frankness of his
nature, as do all men of a quick and impulsive
temperament. Yet he was as quick to repair
a wrong, when convinced that he had erred, as;
he was to maintain his rights.
Col. Carroll was twice a candidate for the
Mayoralty of this city. His first race was
with Hon. A. B. Taylor in 1854, who was the
successful candidate over him by a compara
tively insiimificant majority. Last year the
citizens of Memphis elevated him 4o the firs
office io their gift by a majority which indicated
a flattering confidence in bis ability and integ
rity. He was again a candidate for election

gammoned to a higher tribunal. The business'
heuses of the city were yesterday closed after!

A BEFITTING TESTIMONIAL.
We part this morning with one of the oldest

Mr. Hay is one of the elves ol the AppealJ

ed with us as a journeyman. On learning ol
blSjiietermination to leave, the employees with
wbsm he has been associated, last night pre
sented him with a beautiful gold-headed cane
as a token of their esteem and friendship. The:
testimonial was well merited and worthily be
stowed. While connected with our office, Mr.
Hay has in every capacity conducted himself in

all, and he caries with him our best wishes for
bis future welfare and promotion in life.

LETTER FROM H. S. BRADFORD, ESQ.
Brownsville, April 25, 1857.
Editors Appeal: TLs Democratic Congrss
sional Convention being neu at hand, and my
name having been suggested as one suitable to
be. presented for the candidacy, and fearing my
silence may be construed into a desire to ob
tain the nomination, I wish to say to the De
mocracy of this District that I believe it to be
mynluty to stand aside, convinced, as I am,
that the nomination should be given to some
one who can bting into the canvass the influ
ence of greater ability and longer public ser
vice. This I do with cheerfulness, because it
leaves me to the pleasures of agriculture
which, in these times of great party conflicts
I believe to be invested with the highest hon
ore. I nevertheless entertain a lively appre
ciation of the partiality which has brought my
name before the public, and, in begging to be
excused, intend no disrespect. Every inch of
ground will be contested in the coming canvass,
but I have an abiding faith in the' invincibility
of the Constitution-loving spirit of the De
mocracy and true Old-Line Whigs of this Dis
trict. Should the delegates meet in the spirit
of harmony, with their wonted zeal, energy
and self-sacrificing devotion, being everything
for principle and nothing for men, except capa
bility and honesty, success will'be ours. Any
other course, under the circumstances, will be
suicidal to the success of the party in this
District and will fail to give support to the
Administration of Mr. Buciiinan, whose
policy, as annunciated in his inaugural, should
find a ready response from every man who
holds a strict construction of the Constitution
to be the paramount consideration for the
safety of the "Union." Respectfully,
H- S. BRADFORD.
Have we a Political Popo Amongst Us?
For ihe MemphU Appeal 1
Messrs. Editors : I find a most formidable
Bull of Excommunication against Hume F.
Hill, Esq., thundered forth from the Vatican of
the Eagle and Enquirer. Oar new Pope was
evidently wrathy and savage, when he issued
his Bull of Excommunication. Mr. Hill is
formally read out of the Whig and American
Parlies, and handed over to the tender mercies
of the sovereign voters of Memphis at the
ballot-box. All other members of the dual
party are told, that if they have the manliness
and independence to submit their claims to the
free voters of Memphis, unless they abide by
the dictates of the two parties Whig and
America the Political Pope will issue from
his Vatican the thunders of his condemnation.
Now for one, I am satisfied that a large ma
jority of the people of Memphis are opposed
to mingling partisan politics in our municipal
elections. Why not leave the people free from
all political bias to select the best men for all
the various city offices? Are the aspirants
for office belonging to the dual party conscious
that if their claims are presented to the voters
of the city upon their personal merits, that de
feat will be inevitable?
It must be so; conscious weakness alone
dictated their policy; I refer to personal weak
ness for the want of popular strength. The
double party, Whig and American, or rather
the ico parlies claim a majority in Memphis ;
and the managers are striving to mae a par
tisan contest as the only means to foist men
into office who cannot succeed on their naked
merits. The refractory, are to be whipped into
the ranks by the thunders of the Know-Nothing
Vatican Bulls of Excommunication, and pains
and penalties are in reserve for all the follow
ers of Sam who dare to exercise the inestima
ble prerogative of freemen by casting their
ballots for the best men for mere ministerial
offices, irrespective of partisan considerations.
For one, I shall vote for the best and most
worthy candidates for city offices, whether
they be Whigs and Americans, or simply
Whigs, simply Americans, or National Demo
crats; and the calm, common sense of a ma
jority of the voters of Memphis will most as
suredly lead them to adopt the same sound poli
cy, In spite of the thunders of our new pollti

For the MrciphU Appeal
Messrs. Editors: An article appeared in
Fowlkes' Financial Express of this morning,
(25th,) a part of which purports to be friendly
to the nomination of Mr. D. M. Currin as
the Democratic candidate for Congress in this
District. The author of the article may be a
real and true friend of Mr. Currin ; if so, his zeal
for his friend has, as I think, carried him a
little too far. The writer of this, is now, and
has long been a political friend of Mr. Currin,
and earnestly desires his nomination by the
Somerville Convention, but I think the course
taken by the Express is not the proper, one to
8ecurehlm that position, mat paper says:
"He (Mr. Currin has served his party with
marked fidelity, untiring zeal, and with
power that won for him the respect and admi
ration of his party, as has been evinced by his
being chosen three times successively as Pres
Idential Elector in this District." Now I fully
endorse this and go farther. I think he has
superior claims lor tnat nomination over any
other man. But the Express says farther
" We are well aware that there are more than
one aspirant in the Democratic parly of this
District for Congressional honors. All these
aspirants and their immediate backers are
busily engaged in a secret and underhanded
movement to kill Mr. Currin off. He stands
prominently in their way, and they desire first
to get rid of him, and then have a scrub race
in the Convention amongst themselves."
11 xheir system of warfare is
whispering that while they are for Currin, yet
he cannot be elected. This is the insidious game
noysbeing played by more than one aspirant in
this District through their friends."
Here we think the Express has committed a
blunder and made charges against other Dem
ocrats, calculated to stir up harsh feelings and
produce discord in the party. It makes
sweeping charge, and says: "All these aspi
rants ani their immediate backers art busily en
gaged in a secret and underhanded movement to
kill Mr. Currin off." Now if the Express has
proof of this fact, it is a duty he owes to the
party to expose the whole thing, and give the
names of the parties to the public, for under
this clause every Democrat who expresses
wish to see his friend nominated, or thinks him
more available than Mr. C, is charged with
this intrigue ; for Fowlkes' Express says the
thing is being done "thrtugh their friends."
Democrats are not apt to think themselves
guilty of doing a mean, "underhanded" thing
when they Bay they are of opinion this or that
man is the proper one for the party to nominate
for office. They have been in the habit of
meeting in convention and putting forward
the man who a majority of the part- think is
the proper one. Now, Mr. Express, you and I
are of opinion that Mr. Currin has claims above
all others in the District, yet we have no right
to accuse men who differ with us, of being guil
ty of dishonorable conduct. We are satisfied
that there are men, who we are informed are
aspirants to that position, (Congress,) and who
live outside of Shelby county, who are worthy,
higbioned and intelligent Democrats, and not
" jcru6 " as you have dubbed them. Fovlkes'
Express further says: "These men are well
known, and they will gain nothing by their
shallow devices." This unfortunate clause
will be construed by many as intended to brow
beat all opposition andiorce men into the har
ness. No doubt the sentence was not publish.
ed with that view, yet itbares that construction
stronger than any other. We consider that you
have cast a fire-brand which may do Mr, Cur
rin and the paity much harm.
We would say to the Democrats of the Dis
trict that v e believe the article In Fowlkes'
Express does not represent the sentiments or
the feelings of Mr. Currin's friends in Shelby ;
nor do we think .Mr. C. wM endorse that arti
cle. He and they are willing to abide by the
decision of the ' Convention, and will go to the
Convention in a spirit of harmony, desiring
nothing so much as the success of Democratic
principles. We don't wish to force the De
mocracy into our way of thinking. It is well
known that our political opponents have long
endeavored to injure the Democratic party by
telling the people in the country that "Mem
phis cliques always dictate to the rest of the
party, Ice." We sincerely hope the article in
Fowlkes' Express was not intended to be dicta
torial, yet it furnishes a pretext for the ene
mies of Democracy to reiterate the charge,
The Democrats of Memphis do not desire to
dictate to the party. They work manfully for
the cause, and can proudly point to the result
of the elections in the city for the last few
years as a proof of their industry and fidelity.
A few years ago they were almost in a hope'
less minority. The mystic "Sam" carried ev
erything before him, and a dark cloud hun;
over us. We are ready again to put on our
armor to battle against the Opposition, but we
arefunwilling to rest under the charge, (or to
give any grounds for it,) of wishing to rule the
nominations which are to be made in the Som
erville Convention or any other Convention.
But we will ablJe by the decision of the Con
vention, and heartily support its nominations

Cottea Crop cf 1857':Caa it bo Larga? -
From the Hontsomnj (AI ) Mll
A general impression has-been created at
home and abroad, that tbe growing (?) crop of
cuuon must be excessively large, lue single
fact to sustain this idea is that the breadth of
land planted is neater, bv a rood deal, than It
has been heretofore. It is not, of course, even
approximately known how much greater; and
we Incline strongly to the opinion, that the
increase is less than is generally supposed. Our
reason for thiB opinion is, that there is in no
pari 01 me cotton region a superabundance of
breadstutfs, but on the co itrarr. manv locali
ties have a scanty supply so scanty as to have
made necessary a liberal allowance of land for
corn and the small grains' to make up for tbe
early attack on the year's produce, which will
result from present scarcity. Again, the belief
is prevalent, and nas been for months, that corn
must be high another year, and many have
pUnted it to sell, as being really more remuner
ative when it Is high, than cotton.
The present crop hasbeen set back by a va
riety of causes, one of which at least must be
permanent and verv general in its effect:
In the first place, the great body of the cot
ton land were not put into good order, this
season, from natural causes. Every planter
knows that such an evil is nener fully repaired
during the entire season ; and it is generally
conceded that such waa the bad start
ing point of the crop of 1857. In the next
place, the recent frosts are known to have
killed cotton generally, especially upon the
low, productive lands ; and even the little left
in more favored localities is feeble and sickly,
and will never yield well. Again, the weather
for weeks has been such as to rot the cotton
seed in the ridges, and the sharpest farmers
are not trusting 10 a second stand appearing
irom me urst planting, unee more in many
parts of the country, seed are not to be had
for a replanting. To all these causes for an
inevitable bad stand, as a general thing, we
may- add the fact, that a good deal of cotton
has been plowed up by planters, whose corn
was cut down by tne frost, with the view to in
crease the quantity of land in corn.
in view ot tnese racts, most planters with
whom we have conversed, have come to the
conclusion, that the stand of cotton fwhen se
cured, which It is not vet, is bound to be verv
bad, the weed feeble, and the land cloddy and
hard to cultivate.
With all these drawbacks.it is quite possible
as we have stated, and by means of tbe causes
stated, that the crop may be even large. The
probabilities, however, against an average one,
are very great. A frost on the 25th of Octo
ber, or even the 1st of November, would bring
it greatly below the average, for it is not going
too tar to Bay mat tne crop is a full month la
ter than usual, and the weather, even at this
writing, is rar from being cotton weather.
Hon. Andrew Ewing.
From the Nashville Union.
Tne favorable manner in which this gentle
mau was spoken of in various portions of the
State, previous to the meeting of our Guberna
torial Convention, as a suitable person to run as
the Democratic candidate for Governor, was
highly complimentary to him and gratifying to
bis large circle of political and personal friends.
It was known before the meeting of the Con
vention that a majority of our party were
favorable to the selection of a candidate from
a different division of tbe State. With that
expression of opinion, no one will more cor
dially acquiesce and co-operate than Mr. Ewin;
In tbe course of our recent proceedings in
the Convention, Dr. Winston, as one of tbe
delegates from Davidson county, the immediate
home of Mr. Ewing, took occasion, on behalf
of that gentleman, and in bis necessary absence,
to return thanks for tbe expression of regard
and confidence thus made in his behalf in
various portions of the State congratulating
the Democracy upon the harmony and general
good feeling that bad characterized our pro
ceedings, and pledging the support of Mr. Ew
ing io me aisunguisuea gentleman selected as
our standard-bearer, witu the same zeal and
earnestness of purpose that has heretofore
characterized his political life. The appro
priate and well-timed remarks of Dr. Winston
awakened a cordial and generous response in
the breast of every Democrat present.
It was fromfeelings thus awakened that the
representatives of the entire Democracy united
in one voice, withtbeimmediate delegates from
this Congressional District, in earnestly re
questing Mr. Ewing to bear our standard and
make the contest for us in the approaching
race for congress, bucn a request, prompted
bv Buch motives and under such circumstances.
nml vrhth w U vrj- vi4na for Kaliovin
will be repeated by the Congressional Conven
tion soon to assemble at Ularksville, conveys
a compliment that it would be difficult for any
man to refuse, and especially one of the liberal
impulses and tried devotion to Democracy tf
We make allusion to these pleasing incidents
oi our recent :a'e convention, in connection
with Mr. Ewing, from the fact that they were
unintentionally omitted by the secretaries in
their hurried draft of the proceedings of that
body, which we did not notice at the time and
which we have since very much regretted.
From the New Tork DtUj Newi
The Three Thousand Anti-Nebraska Parsons.
The Rev. Mr. Kalloch, escaping the punish
ment awarded by tne laws or Massachusetts
for the perpetration of adultery, by the fortu
nate composition of a Puritan jury, has re
sumed the pulpit; and it is announced will hold
forth there, defying public sentiment and dis
gracing religion to tbe best of his ability, until
again brought to trial.
Meanwhile, another one of the immortal
"Three thousand New England clergymen,"
the Rev. Mr. Farrington, of Cohasset, Mass.,
is placed on trial in his turn, charged with
"adultery and bestial Indecency."
We believe Farrington in the fifth of the im
mortal " Three thousand " who has been grave
In impleaded of this identical offense since
the beginning of tbe year 1857.

three thousand be charged with adultery, how

It will not be forgotten, that these three
thousand Kallochs and Farringtons only two
years since, being greatly exercised in mind
concerning the abominable sinfulness of all
the world excepting themselves, presented an
impudent memorial to the United States Sen
ate, "protesting in the nme of Almighty God
against the Nebraska-Kansas bill." In that
notable and modest document, they threatened
Congress and the country with displeasure,
should the contemplated act be passed as it
sion after was. They gave us to understand
that a special revelation as to this subject had
been vouchsafed to them the illustrious three
thousand-not to be disobeyed by the rest of man
kind, without danger ofnational and individual
annihilation. They intimated that the people of
a civilized and enlightened nation had beer,
mistaken in erecting a Congress, (composed
of nothing In the world but mere laymen,) for
the enac meut of laws: that the priesthood
was the only fountain and source of authority
and direction in all mundane affairs: and that
so long as they, the three thousand clergymen
of New England, should condescend to give us
occasional information of what would be and
what would not be for the national advantage
and well being, we really had no need of any
other Government, and would do better to dele
gate the legislative power to them. Theso
modest assumptions of the immaculate crew
of New England preachers were endorsed and
echoed by our Black " Republican " and Know-
Aotmng opponents, and the three thousand
themselves were lauded to tbe skies for the
course they had seen fit, "in the name of Al
mighty God," to adopt.
Ihen came the late Presidential campaign,
when almost every church, chapel, meeting
house, Sunday school, religious lecture, sermon,
prayer meeting, camp meeting and love feast
in the nortnern states was converted into a
partisan affair, and the three thousand anti
Nebraska clerical agitators, and thousands
more pretenders like unto them, from Sunday
to Sunday, misrepresented, denounced, and
anathematized the Democratic party, its prin
ciples, organization anu candidates, and raved,
cursed and falsified at the government and citi
zens of America for full six months, all of
course, still by the authority and "in the name
of Almighty God !
It is only since tbe din and hubbub of all this
infamous and successful attempt to link Church
to State has partially died away (since Beech
er. Richmond, Hatfield, Cheever, Tvnz and Co.
have returned to tbe pulpit, exhausted by their
labors on tne stump and siigntly disgusted as
they bad a right to be at the triumph of the
Democracy,) it is only in the reaction and lull
which precedes the next campaign of tbe rev
