Bvry day Uriugs us ntereeting and
oaritfug Dews from France and Spain,
where repuWksanism b just now under
g4g IU severest test and trial. In the
lint, the selieming politicians and plaee
loti9,who love to rest iu fat offices, at
tbe expense of tUe people, under the
gtare and glitter of royalty, nre busy
plotting, some for tlie empire, otliers for
tWe return of the effete Bourbons, who
oareed the Latin countries for fo many
centuries rith their presence. That
ttwy an succeed, is doubtful. The re
publican Is the ntrongest element in
Pianee, stronger than the Bourbon and
'imperial parties together, so that there
fa little fear of the success of
either or both, should they com
biae, ami that is out of the
HM6tion. Thiers, the French people
have already realised, is their sterling
friend. They now understand that his
poKey was one of internal as well as ex
ternal rspose, aiMl that he desired noth
ing so much as the restoration of the
industries of tbe country, and its recov
ery from the severe effects of the late
war. Originally a legitimist, he Is now
a republican, believing that in t lint form
of government center the hopes of the
largest number of Frenchmen. He
alene, of all the public men of France,
has spoken plainly as well as honestly,
ami 'he alene, of all the leaders, has
earned by a conistently conservative
eosduet of tbe government, theconQ
deee of the masses. To him
they look, and it is to him,
when MeMalo shall manifest any
dfeposMoa to weaken in favor of
either of the monarchical parties, they
wW recommit the reins of power, hop
ing that in the pursuit of his declared
peiiey Kranee may enjoy the quiet and
freed si from political turmoil we
kave in the south found necessary to the
restoration of our country and the re
sttsitatiea of fallen fortunes.
In Spain, the cortes has taken the
step neeessary to the defeat not only of
OarKsts, but of all the disintegrating rev
olutionists who have disgraced the re
puWic by excesses, as at Cartagena and
elsewhere. It has elected Cos tell ar pres
ident, and granted him the extraor
dinary powers of a supreme dic
tator, which he demanded before
taking the responsible position. A true
Republican, a man of the people, pure
and of unsullied reputation, we believe
that Spain has done well to place her
destinies, in this the hour of her great
est emergency, in his hands, her most
able statesman; a man everywhere re
cognized as one of tbe ablest public
men of Europe. As a thinker and wri
ter he has few equals, and as an orator
has no superior, and, withal, is a patriot
without spot or blemish. He has la
bored unselfishly for his country, and is
the oaly one of all her able men
-who has shown anything like the ca
pacity necessary to appreciate her needs
and necessities or point a feasible way to
satisfying them. The appointments he
-has made in the army show that his first
core will be to satisfy all classes and.
then unite the heavy hand of well di
rected power to suppress the banditti,
who as Carlists are marauding through
his country and making waste her fair
est fields. This done and the country
thoroughly policed so as to prevent a
recurrence of internal trouble, he will
address himself to the financial and in
dustrial affairs of the country so long
uegleeted, and initiate those reforms so
neeessary to her recuperation. We have
great hopes for his success, because we

1IIE rAKJIEKS 1VILL AVIS.
We are told of one who spent his
days in the artificial construction of a
man, who, as soon as he was made, be
came the master of his maker. It was
thought that the State legislatures had
done the same thing by creating various
kinds of insolent corporations, which
manifested a determination tb defy the
authors of their being. But the farm
ers will most assuredly triumph In their
war with the railroad monopolies. The
result of the elections in California have
inspired the western farmers with re
newed confidence. In tbe approach
ing elections they will sweep the west as
the fire sweeps their great prairies. The
agriculturists of the country are natur
ally conservative in their views and in
their feelings. Their interests lead them
to be so. They are practical and posi
tive men. They know nothing of the
arts and ambition of mere partisans who
go for party for the sake of party. They
think about the rights and liberties of
the people, and talk about them, not
sentimentally, and as agreeable ab
stractions, but as tangible things to be
appreciated and enjoyed in every-day
life, upon plain principles of common
sense and common justice. They
contemplate politics, not exclusively
with reference to great govern
mental matters, involving questions
that ordinarily occupy none except
statesmen's minds, but as pertaiuiug
directly to material interests as well.
AH this being so, when the farmers
move as they have moved, and as they
are moving, through their granges,
there is significance in it, and the day is
not far in the future when its influence
will be forcibly felt in the politics of the
times. The grievances must be great
which move a class of conservative
citizens. In voting ordinarily the farm
ers ore as regular as the un and
as certain as the laws of nature. ' Re
forms, agitations, and innovations take
place slowly with the farmers. Isolated
to a certain extent, not given to grega- j
rious habits, but rarely excited to action j
by the spontaneous enthusiasm of tbe
mere crowd, they must have a reason ;
for everything and a good cause for a
change. Hence, while they are ardent j
politicians, and sincerely attached to '
either tbe one or the other of the j
great parties which have heretofore '
divided the country, they are none tbe I
less emphatic in the enunciation of
any new idea that appears necessary for
their individual prosperity, and none
the less stubborn in its enforcement;
and as it is the nature of the farming
element to make haste slowly in every
thing, the present universal and all
pervading movement taking place in
the west and south does indeed in
dicate the existence of Borne sudden,
imminent and unendurable emergency.
Heretofore the farmers have par
ticipated less in politics than any other
class; they have held few offices in
either the State or national govern
ments; but if they win, as they most as
suredly will in the approaching elections
in the west, the farmers will come to
the front; they will be as they ought to
regard the vote of confidence in him by j be; the controlling clasi of the nation,
the cortes as indicating an almost unani-
mous Mipport by tbe people.
Wk iiave received the first number
of the Jaektwn Dispatch, a weekly pa
per that, from tbe specimen before us,
we think must prove a success. In tbe
salutatory we find Its work marked out
as follows: "The Vitpatch will cut
loose from old party ties, and grooves,
letting the 'past bury its dead,' and
grapple witii the Issues of the day.
' Hounl by no patty's arbitrary sway,
but lollow 'iiien'MT ii uib leads tue way.'
Joining with all good citizens, without
regard to previous convictions, in a
crusade on corruption and political dis
honesty. If wc should see proper, at
any time to enlist under the banner of
party, we will be fearless in defense of
our political tenets; prompt and bold in
their vindication, 'butnevexlosingBlght
of the fact, n conviction of which should
be settled on all disputant, that
the oppofiitlon have equal claims,
with ourselves, to sincerity, and their
opinions should therefore be respected.'
We fear no inquisition, and will oion
the door of thought upon any subject.
We shall cot fear to criticise the acts of
the 'public's servants' those In office
whenever their acts shall merit, nor ab
stain from lauding whenever they shall
deserve it. We will not pander to popu
lar prejudices, nor
'llend the suppliant binges of tbe knee
That tortrt may follow fawning.'
As to Ja;ksen and West Tennessee,
we shall have an especial interest. We
-hall bend our energies to the Interest of
THE FKESI AID THE lTLI'IT.
We understand that one of the leading
clergymen of the city, in a sermon on
Sunday lust, observed that It was not
within tho province of the secular press
to discuss the dectrine of the "real pres
ence," or words to that effect. We de
sire to correct tbe reverend gentleman,
a;id to say that it is perfectly within the
scope, power and duty of the secular
press to discuss anything, religious or
secular, that in any way affects or
interests the people; and that should
that now effete question ever again be
come one of such magnitude as to arouse
the general interest of the public, tbe
press of the country would be found
ready and able to handle it. The time
h is passed when the ministry was looked
t as the only vehicles of intelligence
and guidis In matters temporal as well
a? spiritual. Tho press is now para
mount. It upholds law and morality,
and Is the vigilant guardian of the relig
ious as well as secular rights of the citi
zen, and to it the peoplelookforlighton
all subjects, whether they affect them
here or tre to affect them hereafter.
There is no limit to the duties, as there
is no limit to tlie power and influence
of the press.
The excitement in regard to Cajsarism,
created by the "Sew York Herald, has
played out. The people are competent
to take care of their interests, and under
ihe guidance of a press free from party
trammels or shackles, will not be slow
tosupprets Cicsarism, and with it, to
make an example of the fellow who
would hi ass enough to attempt
the role of Ciesar. Grant may
be President for a third or a fourth
term, but he will never play Ciesar. We
have faith in the people to prevent him,
and we are confident ho has too much
good sense, if not patriotism, to try it.
The attention of our readers is di
rected to a letter from San Diego, which
we publish by permission of one of our
most prominent merchants, to whom it
was addressed. It makes plain the
status of railroad affairs on tlie Pacific
coast, and talks plainly of our chances
of railroad connection with San Fran
cisco, so far as they depend on the efforts
of the capitalists of that city, and proves
conclusively that Tom Scott & Co. have
the wholo scheme of the thirty-second
parallel railroad to the Pacific in their
own hands, and that Memphis Is to be
one of th; eastern termini

The fifth annual fair of the Memphis
agricultural and mechanical society
will commence at the fair grounds on
Tuesday, the fourteenth day of October
sext. The exhibition promises to be
the finest and most varied as well as the
most extensive over presented to tbe
public in this State. The lair grounds,
situated four miles from the city on the
Memphis and Charleston railroad, have
been greatly improved since the fair of
1BTS, and the buildings for the accom
modation of visitors, and for tbe display
of mechanical implements, and of agri
cultural and horticultural products, are
in every way suited to the purpose of
their erection. The officers of the so

Several of our ootemporaries have ex

Memphis could produce such a paper at
tlie Appeal of the first instant. If we
have been the means of attracting pub

that we have been recompensed for the

The great need of the south, says one,
Is factories. Yes, bays a second, and
immigrants. We pay so, too. And an
other thing we want is employment for
the "idle brigade," which, in proportion
te our jiopulatlou, is larger than in any
other seeUon of the country. Almost
every paper we take up now-a-days dis
courses more or less eloquently upon
this class eo useless and so vicious. The
.Mobile Register admits its existence as
a sad fact, and serious as sad, and says
these consumers who produce nothing
are in the large majority men, for tbe
women of tbe south, as a class, have
worked bravely and effectively to
fiolve that problem, new to most of
' them, how to keep tho wolf from the
door. And these do-nothings are in the
main young and able-bodied men;
youths who never did a useful thing,
young men who fought bravely and
never knew fear, middle-aged men who
lived easily before, and propose to do so
now nomehow. And in almost every
southern city these three elements have
a chapter of that vast and universal,
but unorganized order, the Patrons of
Idleness. On every street-corner the
lodges meet without announcement or
call; and there they sell unlimited fu
tures in slang, though they are never
It is very encouraging to the friends
of law and order, everywhere, that the
governors of Missouri and Kentueky are
bending all their energies as men, and
their powers as chief-executive officers,
to hunt down and bring to justice tlie
ruffians who, in those States, have dis
graced civilization by tbe barbarous kill
ing and maimingof innocent and Indus
trious people. Governor Booth, of Cal
ifornia, is also busy looking up the red
handed highwaymen that have been
securing notoriety for his State,
and like his brethren above
named, with every prospect of
success. We are glad of this. There
is no politics in crime, and the moment
a politiciap becomes a criminal he
should lie made a special example of
by his associates, if only in their own
defense. No doubt it will be made to
appear that these kuklux oi Kentucky
and Missouri are of the Democratic or
Conservative party. That Is only clap
trap and falsehood combined. They
are simply outlaws and villains who
should not be allowed to liveaday longer
than it takes to seize, try and execute
them according to law. Sa with de
faulting officials. They have no claims
on any parly, and should be made to
suffer the full penalty merited by their
crimes. We repeat, there is no politics
in crime, and it Is about time a certain
class of impudent scoundrels and crimi
nals of the worst sort, who hang on to
political parties, should be made to un
derstand that they can no longer make
a shield of party or politicians.

Spurgeon is said to be growing old
rapidly, and shows signs of breaking
down physically. In his pulpit he leans
oftener and more heavily on his desk,
his manner is more hesitating, his voice
