The meeting yesterday afternoon at
the hall of the Chamber of Commcroe,
in view of the extraordinary heat de
veloped in that architectural cooking
stove was most numerously attended.
If we consider the magnitude of public
interests involved in the themes of dis
cussion, the number gathered was re
spectable only in intelligence. The
speeches made it was too hot to make
any elaborate report in that fearful apart
ment were excellent, sensible and
matter-of-fact, but so intolerably
hot was it that the burn
ing words that fell from lips of
wisdom were whisked away by the
trembling, fiery sunbeams before they
could be caught up by the roasting repor
ter and committed to these pages of im
John T. Stratton was made President
and Colonel F. A. Tyler, Secretary, of
the meeting, when Major Wicks suc
cintly defined the purposes to be accom
plished by the assemblage. He, and
afterward Colonel Meek, who re
cited the facts more elaborately,
at once arrested the earnest at
tention of every gentleman at all
interested in promoting the pros
perity of this city. It was stated that
if twenty-five miles of the Memphis and
Selma road, within the State of Missis
sippi, were not finished ou the first of
September next, the company would
lose the right to draw from the State
Treasury four thousand dollors per mile
for each mile of road thus completed
within the confines of Mississippi. After
the construction of this number of miles,
there were no further restrictions. This
sum could be exacted of the State Treas
urer as each successive mile was
To supply this iron was the purpose of
Colonel Meek said one hundred thou
sand dollars in cash must needs be paid
for the iron, which may be secured, if
ordered at once, in New Orleans. It is
a cash commodity; no time will be given
and the cash must be forwarded. Fifty
thousand dollars more will be required
to pay freight, insurance, handling and
the cost of transferring locomotives and
cars from the helma end of the road
to this city. The company, in accom
plishing its purposes, can readily use pa
per having three and four months to
run, and there are countless busi
ness houses of the city whose bills can
be easily negotiated here or in New
HOW THEY ARE TO BE SECURED.
Colonel Meek said further that the
lenders of these bills to the company in
curred no hazard. General Forrest, who
has toiled so seduously for the company,
now holds the bonds of the richest, tnof t
prosperous towns and counties in Mis
sissippi, which may be transferred to se
cure those who aid him against the pos
sibility of loss. Moreover, when the first
twenty-five miles are completed the
State issues Its paper for one hundred
thousand dollars, which will be applied
at once to the extinction of this
debt. The company has abundant
assets. If its half a million acres of
land and twnds and subscriptions of
towns and counties were converted, the
road would never incur the slighest diffi
culty in accomplishing objects now con

must begin all our labors dr. itovo.
Colonel Meek stated thatsome months
ago the President and Board of Direct
ors, of whom he is one, had dispatched
Hon. Jacob Thompson to Europe, that
he might negotiate the bonds of the
company. Mr. Thompson's negotia
tions had progressed most favorably, as
already stated: but these treaties, in
volving vast sums, were necessarily te
dious, and it was only known that Mr.
Thompson did not doubt the speedy
consummation of the wishes of those
who had tolled so long and arduously in
behalf of the enterprise.
Colonel Meek said if Memphis do not
act as General Forrest proposes the
company will be compelled to
accede to propositions made by
Columbus, and finish the sixteen miles
of road already graded and ready for
the iron at that place, and then com
plete ten miles here between Memphis
and Holly Springs. Columbus will fur
nish from thirty to fifty thousand dollars
in cash, and securities must be sacrificed
to do tne rest. It was this diffusion of
his resources that General Forrest wish-

Pacik-ic-F-hACB, AKK-, July 10, HC2.
Editors AffkaIi Through the cour
tesy of Captain Torte, of the C. B.
Church, I secured your issue of the eighth
instant, containing an article headed,
"A Genuine Horror. ' This diabolical,
wholesale transaction of human depravi
ty was not committed at ny "Place,''
but at my lower wood-yard four miles
below my home. As ii Memphian, in
Arkansas, no one regrets the horrible
deed more than myself. On the morn
ing of the third instant a Mr. Pete Tur
ner and Mat Haberty came to my place
and told me they were not going to the
city, but would have their t ourtn of
Julv at home. Thev requested that I
would send down an order for them for
one gallon of whisky and one keg of
lager beer. The City of Chester brought
the same up on her up trip on the even
ing of the Fourth. The poor and un
fortunate Hamersmith,anu a young Ger
man, a fnend of Hametsmith's, wiio
gave his name as Kelly, came on the
Chester. Mr. Turner and Haberty, who
had been cutting wood for me, came up
from their cabin at the lower landing
on the following morning, and I loaned
them a skiff to take their supplies down.
Hamersmith and Kelly went with
them all Germans and friends. Mr.
Turner, a truthful and reliable man, re
turned to my place on foot, having
walked four miles on the same evening
after dark. Turner was excited, yet
sober. He called me out, and told me
that H liberty and Hamersmith had
got on a drunk, and had lutd a iiuarrel.
Hamersmith abused Haberty, and, ac
cording to Mr. Turner's statement, struck
Haberty with an ax helve and then cut
him several times on the head with a
knife. Hamersmith then drew his
double-barrelled shot-gun, and when in
the act of presenting it Haberty drew
his ax and did the cutting, severing his
leg and arms. The whole tragedy can be
charged to one gallon of whisky.
The statement I furnish you is
given me by Mr. Turner. Mr.
Kelly, who was preseut at the time
and saw the terrible war of
"whisky, gun and ax," went down
in the skiff' with Hamersmith, aud is
now in the city. He may give a differ
ent version. A Mr. Enuis, living at
158 Madison street, also went down with
Hamersmith, yet was not present, nor
knew nothing of the quarrel. As soon
as I heard of the fight, I sent three
men to assist Mr. Turner in getting
Hamersmith into the skiff, as there was
no surgeon nearer thanJ the city. Ha
ls?rty is still at the Pelota wood-yard,
and says he regrets having done what
he has, and that he will stand his trial.
Hamersmith has a sister aud brother-in-law
in the city. The poor, unfortu
nate man told me on the morn
ing of the fifth that he had
drove a hack for Bruce & Co.,
and had worked for the Allen Bros., of
the Commercial Hotel, ou their garden
farm. The friends of Hamersmith can
find me at home, should they wish au
immediate investigation. I will aid
them in bringing to justice the perpe
trator of such an inhuman butchery,
would seem no hand would deal save a
head without a heart, a mind without a
conscience, and a soullborn of hell, and
nurtured in whiskv. Hamersmith and
Haberty were both in the Federal army,
and the fall of Vicks-burg by its captors
is thus celebrated by them. The pic
ture is one for Harper. God yant ii
may never again occur. "Pacific Place"
under its wildwood aud woodbine, has
no choice, but wants peace, and so does
Clayton ridden Arkansas. In haste
yours, c. f. mokkis.
P. R. It is due Mr. Turner to state
that the keg of beer was not opened,
which was ordered by him, and the sad
affair grew out of Haberty's "little
brown jug." I have never seen Mr.
Turner under the influence of whisky.
In ail my dealings with him I have
found him correct. Haberty, when so
ber, is a quiet, hard-working man. Had
the war occurred at my home place, it
might have been averted. They left my
landing sober, and iiad not tlranK a
drop, as the jug waa sealed when they
left. c : f j U. F. M.

The following letter is suggestive:
Editors Appeai I was an Ander
son man, and believed that Mr. Anderson
was the man the people wanted for
Sheriff, and thought that if the conven
tion would not accord the people their
wishes in the selection of the candidate
for Sheriff, that I would vote tor Curry;
but I have been informed that Mr. Curry
spent his money liberally, or exerted
himself, to defeat Mr. Anderson before
the convention, believing that he could
beat any other man that would I- nom
inated. That settles the ruiitter. I re
member hearing now a shrewd Radical,
two years ago, caused a weak Demo
cratic brother to be nominated against
himself, and it was said that this same
clever fellow, through his personal
friends inside our own Democratic Con
vention, was stocking the cards against
Anderson, that Curry might come in. i
Curry was mightily picked up when I
Jack Doyle turned up, and felt that he I
A bail of mixed country and city fine
people is a peculiarity in many ways.
The same sincerity and open-hearted-uess
that distinguish both classes are
happily mingled in a blissful stream of
human life. The polite of the city per
son of refinement is equaled by the
ruddy glow of healthful beauty, and so
forth. This is a fanciful touch, some
will think, but, in very truth, such po-
eiic gaiuermgs are poasioie.
Tapp's Hole was agog all the week in
anticipation of a flare-up in Wallace's
Courthouse. Preparations went on all
over the village, and there Ls no telling
what odds and ends of ribbon were
made available for fashion's liveliest
purposes. The upper room of that
huilding was swept out and sprinkled
coolly: the evergreens that were hung
up and worked into fantastic shapes of
lesrooning last year were carefully
dusted, and the two fire-places were
carefullv covered. A small oar was im
provised on one of the stairways, with
an imposing array of black bottles, and
the swine roasted and frizzed in the
blazing pit outdoors.
THE ROASTED SWINE
seems to be a necessity to any sort of a
country frolic. It was always so among
polished people, and this accounts for
the sacred character of that animal
among some extinct nations that had
reached a condition of civilization akin
to our own before they "played out."
The vigor of that constitution which re
quires barbecued swine for supper dur
ing the progress of a midsummer ball,
may be more easily imagined than de
cribed. CAPERING ROUND GENERALLY.
Everything being thus judiciously and
felicitously prepared, the music (the
same band that made people's heels
crazy at Cuba the day before) gave a few
preliminary rasps and off they went-"on
with the dance," etc., was the simple
order of the nicht. The laree hall was
jammed, for all the boardinghouses and
the hotel poured forth their youth,
beauty, and their best dresses. Mem
phis contributed several buggies, and the
surrounding country was represented bv
an array of horse-flesh picketed to the
fence outside. The favorite spring on
the stairs ran dry twice, and the musi
cians swore that their elbows needed
grease. Those who felt wearied in the
lower extremities from overtripping on
that proverbial member of the pedal
appenilages, walked into the modest
moonlight in pairs and engaged in phil
osophic discussion on love and matri
mony. Kaieigh was truly in ecstacies. Such
a sight was never witnessed before.
There was no accommodations for the
crowds who wished to enjoy a country
snooze after a country frolic. No one,
of course, thought of reposing while
those ankle-disturbing strains stole out
of the upper windows and even set the
varmints capering about the square. It
was even said that two dippers,
which had been used at the
Beech spring for three weeks previ
ous felt the warm blood coursing through
their haudies and set up a quiet, sedate
waltz round the marble slab on which
they were wont to repose in sober health
fulness. It is certain that several goats
formed a cotillion at the back of Fuller's
stable, and danced until the perspiration
jsiured down each hairy visage, so that
it had to be wiped off with corn-sack
handkerchiefs, with which those frisky
yet sensible animals had provided them
selves. The general effect was extremely
happy on all animated nature. Our
Memphis people who went to Raleigh
to enjoy themselves became much more
florid than usual, and left the ballroom
feeling that they had laid in about fifteen
additional years of health and happiness
by the exercise.

extension of the road to Holly Springs
will make the stock valuable, and insure,
if the company had not a dollar, or a
single resource, the steady extension
and early completion of this magniti
cent railway line. Colonel Meek, of
whose eloquent and effective speech we
have given a most imperfect outline,
predicted for this city boundless pros
perity. Other Western cities grew
slowly, but the population and wealth
of Memphis ana of St. Louis were
augmented alike with marvelous ra
pidity. Colonel Meek's speech was very
warmly greeted, ill fact, it was a hot
place, an earnest body of men and
great warmth of feeling and feeling
of warmth was evinced. The president
was limp when the body adjourned, and
his clothes adhered to him as if he had
been melted and poured into them. It
was a moderately hot afternoon.
said he was disposed to stand by the
railway builders; that Colonel Meek's
speech was full of wisdom; that every
man was the gainer by these enter
prises. If he had fifty thousand in real
estate he was willing to give any
man five thousand dollars to build a road
even to Holly Springs. He would cer
tainly have ten thousand dollars added
by tbe road to his estate of fifty thou
sand dollars. So with men in every
pursuit They never lose, and always
gain by the successful consummation of
schemes of tliis character.
The atmosphere still grew hotter and
thinner, and was so ratified when Gen

otherwise their lively photographs would
be here presented.
Other speeches would have been made
but there was no use. Everybody
thought alike, and it was agreed that a

the narrow-gauge :
May. don't you see, far up the track.
Those whirling wreaths of shining Muck"
Hark! don't you hear a distant humming?
sure as fate, the CAM are coming!
Clear the track! That fiery steed.
Coming down with lightning speed,
That 's the famous Narrow-Uauge,
The fleetest pony of his age,
Sure of foot ana sound of limb
Whete's the horse can distance Aim '

W'egase upon that pretty sight !

For dyspepsia, indigestion, depression
of spirits and general debility, m their
various forms, a preventive against fe-
KuUt like a racer, long and slim.
And furnished with a splendid Unih,
We do admire you, precious steed !
We had grave doubts about your speed,
Anil very wisely shook our bead,
And very forcibly we said :
"He's must too narrow in the chest !
Just let him dohisletW best.
He hasn't got the wind and power
To make a dozen miles an hour!"
We take it back ! You're muscled well,
And then you know that "blood will tell."
With pent-up tire you're all aglow,
Aud wildly snort and fiercely blow;
Your nerve how finely you can string.
What foam-wreaths from your curb-bit fling
What flashes from your blazing eye,
W hat splendid leaches, when you try ;
And how your little iron hoofs clatter,
Can't yiw run f That's what's the matter;
Hail, pretty, frisky Narrow-Gauge,
The fleetest pony of your age !
Ho! sound the gong and Are the gun,
And let us have a world of fun;
WVve got the very thing we need,
A hurtdrett-thotmnd-dollar itetd!
In just one minute makes his mile.
Noir, can't we put on "heaps of style?"
And when we go. no matter where,
All eyes at us wlil wildly stare;
They'll say, "Raleigh's coming out,"
And hats will wave and voices shout.
With .celling heart and flushing pride,
We'll roll along the classic side
if our own Fontaine. UffweTlgo
Where sulphur waters sparkling flow.
Where rocks, like steeples, mounting high
Aspiri' to reach the loving sky.
And where, from almost every State,
The pl.-asure-seekers congregate.
And when they see our famous steed,
In this they'll doubtless be agreed.
That never in their own loved East
Did they behold a finer beast.
Nor one that's keener on the run .'
Ho! sound the gong and Are the gun!
Well enter Memphis with a yell.
And there well ent our largest swell !

The flis'test horse we've purchased yet.

And size the keenest on the run !
Ho ! sound the gong and fire the gun !
You Narrow-Gauge, you precious deer."
You're very, very welcome here!
For in this age of furious steam
No town is safe until the scream,
( r neigh, of an Iron horse la heard :
is then It feels its pulse stirred.
And from Its lethargy it springs.
And from the dusk awakes and sings !
And that is Raleigh ! Bless the day
That saw the Iron horse come this way !
