THE MEMPHIS SUNDAY APPEAL.
MEMPHIS, TENK, SUISrXA.Y, DECEMBER 24, 1871.
"VOL. XXXI. NUMBEB lO
TW.B inidPAL lUCTIM.
The contest for the mayoralty U Anal
ly one between John Johnson and
John Losgne. The advocates of reguisr
ward convention hare bean laboring for
several daya to brine forward Colonel H.
0. Young aa a candidate for mayor. Hia
great personal popularity would hare
made him a formidable asplrsn, bat we
understand he haa positively declined the
hsnor which his irienda would oonfer
upon him, and we further learn that the
advocates of a convention will have no
otndldate in the field, leaving each man
to vote aa hia Judgment may dictate.
From oar knowledge of the character of
those who have advocated a convention,
we believe they will not hesitate In a con
teat between two anch candidates aa John
Johceon and John Loague. We know
they are boneat men, who have the good
of the city at heart, and had rather aee the
offloe of mayor in the hands of an honest
man than in those of a chronic offloe
eeeker, who, in the abort apace ol ten
years, baa made a colossal fortune oat of
oflees from which true men generally re
tire poorer than when they entered. The
gulf between the two men la quite as wide
mentally and morally aa It is In honesty
and integrity. We have only differed
from our life-long partisan associates in
believing I bat a mwmtcpal election involv
ed no question ol party politics, xbe
friends ol a convention, without assent
ing to this proposition, can have no diffi
culty new in cooperating with us.
Of the two candidates for the may
a'.ty, one la a Democrat, the otiie
is a Radical, and If the friends of a
convention were actuated, aa we believe
they we.e, by a desire to promote Lbe sue
oeas of party, they cannot hesitate be
tween an heneat Democrat and an unscru
pulous Kadical. We respect the motives
which marked the advocates of a con
vention, looking, aa they do, with
veneration upon anything to which
the name ol Democrat attaches, a
the Hindoo gazes with awe upon hia deity.
We trust to stand shoulder to shoulder
with them ardor the banner which the
hoau of Democracy may decide to to '.low
hereafter, involving party isanes But
from one end ol the Union to the other the
people have indicated a determina
tion to take their local elect lens out of pol
itics, or. rather to select their own candl
dates. Believing that John Johnaon nad
made an honest, iaithfui and incorrupti
ble mayor, that the Interest of the city
required hia re-election, and fearing, aa
there was evident reason lor fearing, that
a convention would be packed to defeat
him, we joined the people in their support
of Mr. Jchnson, and hoped he wculu be
re-elected just as the majors of Nashville,
laouieville, Boston, Chicago, Worcester
and other cities had been elected. In
this course we ware actuated
solely and entirely by a desire to
promote the public good. We conoede
equal honesty to thoaa who have disa
greed with us and we see no reason why
this difference should prevent a future
onion and harmonious actk n of Demo
crats. From our knowledge of the men
who hare opposed the policy of the Af
pial we cannot believe they will con
tribute to lbs triumph of a Kadical whose
election all moat agree would be a public

New You, December M Tbe sixty
sixth anniversary of the New England
society waa celebrated this svenlng by a
d inner at Dslmonino's. Counsellor Joseph
U. Cboat presided, and after the aabalan
tiala had been disposed of, delivered a
very humorous address. He announced
the first toaat to be the " Day we Cele
brate," to whloh the Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher responded He spoke of the
vsried beauties of New England scenery
ana InduBtrv, and the honesty of lta peo
ple. Referring to the Pilgrim Fathers, he
said they brought over with them many
of the errors and superstitions whicn ex
isted In England at tbe time, bat left
more behind them. Through time these
were eradicated, and there were no more
burning witches, whloh waa the pilgrims'
greatest snd most Irrational superstition.
Beecher then turned to politics, snd said
It should be preached from the palpil as
muofi as toe gospel is; this tbe pilgrim
fathers did, and he approved their ideas
this regard. He regretted that the
Kvernment and the church had come to
so fsr separated as they are In these days.
When New England waa coioniasd it was
the custom to build the church first st s
pi see where it waa intended to build a
city. Every man who became a resident
of the new city waa a member of tbe
church, which became tbe local legisla
ture. In conclusion be referred to the
lste reform movements In this city, snd
said it was the result of the Mew England
Ides of honesty and economy.
The next toaat waa, "The President of
the United States," which was drank
In offering the toast of the "City of New
York," the president said sofficient re
sponse had been made on the 7th of

Dr. Bellows spoke on the New England
character, and said to get to the root of
New England character, we must go to
the mother country of Englsnd. The
strength snd force ot character were char
acteristics of the great Anglo Saxon race.
Surrounded aa they were by tbe aea, with
a view confined, they had to look into
themselves and learn tbe weaknesses of
their nature, and strengthen them. Such
were the pilgrims who came over In the
aiajnjwer, and made tbemsalvs the
nueclus of this great republic, and tbe In
fluenoe of whoee examples In life, religion
and politics is still felt, and whose ideas
still permeate the public mind.
"American Diplomacy" waa ree ponded
to by Hon. William M. Everts, who, ic
tbe course of his address, referred to the
Washington treaty. The Anglo-Saxon
character, he said, settled by reason and
treaty what other nations would go to
war about. Wisdom la still better than
the weapons of war. A republic shou.d
be for peace always, and so effect harmo
ny, happiness snd prosperity among i s
people. "Oar Common Schools" waa re
sponded to by Prof. Northrop. Among
other toasta were "The Army and Navy,"
"The Press," "The State of New York,"
and "Oar Invited Guests." Among tbe
latter were General Hawley, General Mc
