TEE HAIXKOAD QUESTION.
We agree with our cotecoporary, the .Bulle
tin, in its well expressed opinion, that the
Board of Mayor and Aldermen ought not to
act-apon the question of connecting the Mem
phis a Etd Charleston Railroad with the river,
in the present immature state of the public
rated on that question. We have already- ex
pressed a very decided opinion in favor of the
sieasare as a movemeat of good policy for
Memphis and of advantage to all concerned.
Bert we prefer to rest the whole qiestion upon
the verdict of the citizens of Memphis, whose
province it Is to determine it. And we are
therefore opposed to the Mayor and Aldermen
hastily attempting to legislate Upon a question
of so much importance, and which involves so
swell of interest to every citizen, until they are
distinctly Instructed by the people of the city
as to the course they shall psrsue in the prem
ises. If they act at present, either far or
against the extension, it will only bj a source
of irritation hereafter, and.a vote of the people
wM finally be called for the purpose of ascer
t&itting the sense of the citizens touching the
question. There can not fail to be aroused
atreatg prejudice against the party assuming to
farce measures without the consent and appro
bation of the voters, which will inevitably re,
act against that side.
It is moreover just and proper, in every Bense,
that the people eheuW be consulted to uchlpg a
aeasure which has excited so wide a contrari
ety of sentimefit. The most judicious course
that can be pursued by the Board, is to order
aa election, specially to take the sense of the
voters on this question, and thus totally to sep
a rate it from all other questions and interests.
It appears plain to us that this is both the
B3et satisfactory and the most summary meth
ed) sVsnosifig of the question, and of brin;-
iog aoont a feseral acquiescence in the resale.
Beading Matter on Every Page.
S"Mr. Tooxss' bYikn.pt law (says the
Wash tag ton correspondent of the New York
IltraM) is .being actively considered by the
Jsslklary Coamittee, and it will probably be
presented to the Senate early next week. It
is Mderetoed'K will be a general bill, including
iadivMaals, corporations, chartered banks and
acty association of persons authorized to issue
Betes, WHs, tc. It will provide for voluntary
aad involuntary bankruptcy, and wW be ratro-
Mtive. The retroactive feature will be guarded
as to exclude all who, scbseqoeat to January
last or any other time, have made assignments,
ia contemplation of the passage of a bankrupt
law, which gave preference to one creditor
w aaether, and the bankrupt in such caees
sbmM not receive a discharge unless with the
flMBtat of a majority of his creditors who
have been so preferred. The involuntary
baakraatey applies to cases 'where the debts
exef two thousand dollars, and the person
declared naaknpt is entitled to trial by jury
aH U ansfers of property of any kind, for the
latrpase of giviag any creditor, endorser or
ether pervoo any preference or priority over
gaaerat creditors, to be nail and void, and the
parties obtaining them to be sued for such
assouet as assets of the bankruptcy. With
rags id to banks and other issuers of paper

the KabMties which attach to individuals, they

EOUTHEKH PACIFIC SAILSOiD.
We judge from tbe following, which we clip
from the New Orleans Dtlta of the Jllh last,
that this road Is likely to ba seriously Involved
in difficulties, and that there is a projjabllKyof
its being sold out under a deed of trust. In
this event, of course, a large number of inno
cent stockholders must suffer loss :
The Delia says:
There was oulte a laree attendance yes
terday at the office of the Company, of the
stockholders of tbe Southern Pacific Railroad,
in pursuance of the call by President Yergtr.
PrlVnt rrrrr exnlained the nnrDoae of
tbe meeting in a speech of considerable length,
recapitulating tne conmuon, prospects a do gan
gers of tbe company, substantially as we britflv
set them forth a day or two a go. He laid much
irf on theureencv of the claims of the com
pany's creditors ; they had done honest work,
he said ; they had postponed their just demands
time ami again ; mey naa graniea every ucmj
and indulgence until patience had ceased to be a
virtue, and now thev should be paid. And
President Yerger did not hesitate to say that,
after the Directors had failed to meet and talce
the important subject in consideration, if the
stockholders to whom he appealed refased to
take steps for satisfying or for coming to a
good understanding with those creditors, it
would be just that the company's property in
Tfin should be sold under the deed of trust,
as advertised already fer aale on tbe first of
June next. It was by mat oeea or irust tuai
materials were procured and work was done at
a critical time; it was by that work that tbe
charter was saved; and now, if those who
secured the road from forfeiture can get pay in
another way, they are entitled to have it by
the sale of the road itself.
President Yerger said much more in regard,
ro aisucguisaing oeiween, oono jiie uti uejj'is
stockholders, and intimated that one conse
quence at least of the deed ef trust in Texts,
would be to purse the Ceopaay of the latter in
cumbrance, that is, of stockholders who re
joice in fabulous amounts of stock for which
they paid nothing, and which, thrown into the
market, detract from the general value ef stock
aa well as the reputation of the Company.
Mr. Richard T. Archer, of Mississippi, one
of tbe Company's Directors, replied to Presi
dent Yerger In a somewhat pointed and forci
ble manner. He complained that when he sub
scribed $6 000 in cash for stock under the new
rrasgemect last year, Mr. Terser headed the
list with a subscription of $30 000 for himself
and friends an amount that that gentleman
and his friends afterward declined to make
good. He also complained of having been
arawa in, seme way, by Robert J. Walker, to
sacrifice a Mississippi plantation worth every
Mt of $23 800, fer that much stock ia tbe old
Atlantic and Pacific Railroad project, the im
mediate progenitor of the present Southern Pa
cific He also spoke of the injustice tf the
Texas Leeislature having affixed to tbe dona
tion or 10,240 acres of land aad .O0O in
money per mile offthe road, the condition that
t domicile of the company should be re
moved to Texas, and concluded by the feeling
expression of the wish that he was " out of
tbe scrape" altogether.
Col. Wiefall, or lexas, men speice, mingling

manner as to smooth the troubled waters, ban

He commiserated tbe case of Mr. Archer, but
be would recommend to bim the example of
David, who mourned in sackcloth and ashesfor
bis sick child, but when tbe child was dead,
arose, washed himself, and went about his;
business like a sensible man. r. Archer bad
better let by-gones be by-goaes, resign himself
te irretrievable losses, and go about bis busi-
ae;s. i-or bis part, ne considered mac me
exchange of Mr. Archer's worn-out plantation
in Holmes county, worth about $S,000, for
$28,000 of stock In the Bob Walker project, a
very eood bet, if it was lost. He would have
ttaked quite as much on the same game. Col
VTigfall concluded by eta ting plainly what was
the real question before the meeting, and urg

tc satisfy creditors, prevent, the sale of the
road, and nrotet COM fide stockholders.

Mj Cetmirywm of ihe SouUi: At thereqaest,
and in behalf of the Mayer and Public Author
ities ef the city ot Montgomery, I bid you wel
ee ne. I have designated you as my country
men of the South, for this is to be a convention
of Southern men, assembled on Southern roil,
for the purpose, strange to say, of counteract
ing the utijxst and deleterious iiifluences of our
own national legislation ; of raising up and in
vigorating a commerce for our own section, of
which it has been deprived by means ef unjust
navigation laws ; In short, for tte purpose of
encouraging and stimulating by the wisdom of
your suggestions, tbe industry of a section
which has effectively bone the burthens of
government and buiH up a rival section, while
enjoying but little of its favor.
1 welcome you as the representative of a peo
ple, who, confident in their own resources and
in themselves, and having a proper regard for
the great principle of ntum el iuum, ask noth
ing of their general government but te be let
alone who, if they can be permitted to enter
into the great contest of Industry, UBtrammel
ed, will look alone to their energy, prudence
and wisdom, for success.
I welcome you, as tte forsbadowiog of that
other more important convention which, if in
justice and wrong continue to rule the hour and
councils of the dominant section of our divided
and estranged land, must, ere leeg, assemble
for the noble purpose of putting the political
relations of tbe South upon the safe basis of
an iadependeLt sovereignty ; whose climate and
soil, protections and social institutions, will
have that unity which experience seems to have
demenstrated to be the only permanent basis
ef successful gevernment.
The Oo vention was organized by tbe ap
pointment of tbe following officers:
President Andrew P. C&lboun, of South

On taking tbe Chair, tbe President spoke ia
substance as folio ws : ,
Gextlemek: While I thank you most sin
cerely lor tae aistinguisDea nonor you Dave
conferred upon me, I assure you I approach
tbe duties you have imposed upon me with
great distrust in my capacity te fill them equal
to your expectation. That there is aa unani
mous feeling now existing throughout the
Souib upon tbe all-abeorhiag and vital ques
tions which we are assembled here to discusa,
no me will deny. Since 1546, when I had tbe
honor to represent this, mj adopted State, 1l
the Memphis Convention, 1 felt satisfied tbat
the large collection of Southern energy and
Southrr. talent which assembled at these con
ventions, would, by the intrchauge of opinion,
which takes place on seen occasions, be uiti
mately productive of good, i relt tnat if we
were but tu uuite the South, and cause her to
act with one half th energy fer tbe mainte
nance of ber rlgbts that her enemies display in
taking them away, she would long since have
accomplished all at which she alms. But,gen
tlmes, we are an agricultural people ; we are
aisiategratea in our society roe ownership
f slaves and tbe working of her soil necessa
rily affects us. Bat naturally it produces an
independence of character which marks us,
amoag all people, as a peculiar race.
We have now, for the first time, struck the
chord ef tbe great Southern heart, and a coal
men pulsation is felt along the American slave
States, striking deep into the interior. We are
new aroused, fer the first time, to a sense of,
the fact tbat ereat causes have been at work
from the formation of tbe government to the
present time, tbat hare changed socially, po
litically, agriculturally, and commercially, tbe
intervening causes which produce tbe distrac
tion of the social fabric of our society.
Gntlemn, it matters not wnal toe area or
tbe South or her triumphant resources may be;
what her position to be powerful is. na'urally,
f we permit the pressure from the North to go
further than it has at tbls moment, we cannot
expect (it will be idle to do so) that one jot ef
tbe power claimed by our foe will ever be
yielded. Ic is all tbe same to us; the slave
holder and his slave 'he slave States and their
tsstittttiMii are the objects of their hostility;
and now they claim the victory as wen they
say tbat time, will consummate all tbe rest they
wane nui nine, geoiiemen, rime is at raiua
bit to e to our tutmitt. Let a common In
terest unite u, and, gentlemen, let us, as far
aa the reeerved power in these States will
enable u, seek t d-velop every atom of our
strength and delegated power to the general gov
ernment. We must respect tbe laws as long as
we live In this Union.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I beg to assure tbe
Convention that 1 come to this chair with no
other purpose or desire tban to fill it with im
partiality, and I throw myself on your kindness
to exeuse any errors wbieb I might Inadvert

What Bsill'bs DJte with the BeeuiaaU ?
There is a contrariety of opinion in the Dem
ocratic ranks as to what course of policy shall
be pursued toward those members of tbe party
who have acted with the opposition during the
present session of Congress on tbe Kansas
question. The New York correspondent of the
Washington Uaieu says on this subject :
lac jisniu oj oramrrc, ui uiis uuuimt;,

The Journal of Commerce, whose chief edi

"pacific policy," and the manifestation of "a
spirit of moderation and kindness." I have
infinite respect for bis judgment, and believe
that he speaks the sentiments of a large por
tion of the party. I confess tbat they were
not myown, but I would adopt them sooner
than that tbe Republicans shonldtjiave the
glory of enrolling in their ranks menwbo once

Republicans of this city will insist oh it tbat

for Intra, and the actual assertion of their doc
trines with regard to Kansas. They are lost in
amazement at tbe idea that Democrats presume
to celebrate it as a triumph for their side, and
crack tbe most doleful jokes about "funeral
salutes," &.e. Simple Democrats cannot real

From tha Boston Courier J
There are few things no wide apart in human
life as speculation and fact. We have a set of
men and women, toot in this country, and fur
some reason they seem to congregate in Mas
sachusetts, who are mere speculatists, tbat is,
tbeorisers. upon a great variety of subjects
which affect the concerns of society, ihey
urge abstract doctrines to their extremes t limit,
Everything in this world ought to be perfectly
right, according to their notions of right, It
is evident tbat a ereat many things are appa
rently wrong. Tbe world is like a tangled
web, nmcn is unliseiy ever to be completely
straightened out. Nothing can be done to im
prove its condition, except by pains which will
be requisite until tbe very tai of time, and by
tbe most careful and geatle treatment. Yet tbe
idea ef these theoretical philosophers is to
seize hold of a loose string here and a loop
there, and to pull away with all their might
and main. Tbe consequence is that they break
it, and every effert wbich they employ only
makes the snarl still more complicated and un
manageable than before.
So in England, more than in any country of
Europe, there has been a predominant set of
these philosophers wbo wait for neither tide
nor time. They eet themselves to work some
years ago, to effect tbe emancipation of tbe
negroes ia the British colonies. We do not say
what influence was exercised upon tbe British
Parliament, by the consideration tbat such an
act might prove embarrassing to our own
Southern States, and promote such causes of
disagreement between tbe South and tbe North,
as would make tbe United States a far less
dangerous rival to Great Britain, when dis
united and perhaps broken in two, tban when
they stood firmly leagued together. Our own
philosophers of this sort increased amazingly
in numbers and zeal under this lead of British
pbilanthrophy. Tbe billing and cooing, back
and forth, between them on both sides of tbe
water was something truly edifying and mar
velous to behold.
We say cothinr against emancipation in
itself, or as a substitute for and a relief from
actual cruelty and oppression. But If there be
reason In the roasting of an egg, there Is also
a reason, a judgment and a propriety to bs ex
ercised upon the subject of negro slavery, as
upon all others. To tbe sort ef freedom
claimed now-a-days, by the philosophers in
ques ion, for black men and white men too, we
are very much opposed ; and touching tbe civil
freedom of Uie former class, there are very
many considerations of justice, humanity and
discretion, affecting both the slave and his
master, to be taken into account, whenever any
such question is to be disposed of. Nor is it
necessary for us to say anything of the well
known effects of negro-emanc7patin in the
British West India colonies. It is sufficient
for our purpose, mat the tide of sentiment has
taken an altogether backward turn among our
English brethren, at least so far as tbe action
of the Government is concerned. Philanthropy
was ail very well on the other side, of tbe
water, until they found by experience how pro
foundly their interests were affected by the in
dulgence of Jt. It was a very cheap sort of
philanthropy Indeed, among our own ne 'to
phi list philosophers, because not one of them
bad the slightest personal interest wbich could
be injured by giving it free course. On the
contrary, it was z species of humanity, to be
gratified entirely at tbe expense of others; and
so talking is the cry of freedom among the
multitude tbat they wbo raised tbe cry tbe
leu, est often also raised themselves into tbe
list of heroes and martyrs, upon the score of
their negrophilism alone, without reference to
any other qualities or virtues whatsoever.
The test of Heroism was begro worship; tbe
reward of martyrdom consisted in procuring

Every one in the slightest degree acquainted
with the subject, knows that tuch immigration
must be necessarily an enforced one, in a
word, that the negroes must be obtained froci
the chiefs, and that they are captives taken by
violence for the purpose. This is the svntern
pursued, by the French, with the connivance of
the British Government, although the latter as
yet only employ Coolies in their own planta
tions, procured and transported they best know
how. Much information is afforded on this
subject from papers recently transmitted by
me rresKiem io iuo ocuaic, m regara to Afri

ments is a late letter from Mr. Mason, oar
Minister to France. It appears that to an in
quiry of Us address to Count Walewskl, thht
Minister replied that there was "no truth In
the statements In the English newspapers, thht
the French vessels freighted with African em

He was at length lodged in jail, but the officers

The Weather. The weather yesterday was
tbe warmest tbls season, according to the
indications of tbe thermometer ; a delicious
breeze, however, prevailed, which made tbe
day very agreeable. At 7 o'clock in the

The Abt or Fencixg. Among all the ex-
ercies wbich reason has suggested or experi
ence taught, for tbe development of the physi
cal frame, none can be more highly recom
mended than the art of fencing. It is a manly
exercise, and at tbe same time It is an accom
pliehment upon which any gentleman might
pride himself. Its use Is not confined merely
to a defense of the person, but.it is promotive
of health as well as a graceful and manly de
meanor. Tbe dancing master may do much
to impart grace and elegance to tbe carriage.
but it is the fencing master or drill sergeant
who must complete tbe job by giving polish to
the whole bearing and demeanor.

Memphis is at last connected with tbe North
