The people of Alabama propose

catted tor Ue purpose of revising the
rowrtlUUion, ou the first Monday in Au-
rwsI jkxL The Meet men In tne btate
taveteei nominated, 1 the conven
ti will, no doubt, be the ableatVIeliber-
litlv liodv ever convened in me ciate,
Oetieral I P. Walker, of Huntsville,
iu iioan nominated sh a candidate. He
will make an eflVeient member in the
convention, as lie is certainly one of the
kUm! men of the south. He was ecre-
twy of war under Mr. Davie's adminia-
lralkMi as Confederate btates President,
and bore an aetive part in the mighty
drama of the late war. There is no sub
jeet, no occasion, upon which General
Walker i3 not prepared to speak, and to
epeak ably, eloquently and convincing
Jy. He combines deep.reeearch with
the ready power.of communicating the
jiek treasures of ids mind. General
Walker addressed the people of Madison
county, Alabama, a few days since, and
Ills speech was characterized by great
wisdom, moderation and statesmanship,
Tim following elcuuent.extract will be
read with interest and profit by the peo
lite of the south :
There k no laud in the world compar
able to ours in the triune combination of
soil, climate and production. Uod
smiled upon it in his bonellceucc, and
made it rich iu all Uie attributes and ca
pabilities of a great civilization. Her
ooly want now is good government an
economical, honest, noii-partisan and
abstinent government a government
which recognizes in human affairs the
preat doctrine of "free agency" aa God
applies it in his divine administration.
Govern as little as possible, and only by
general laws, is the rule of wisdom,
sanctioned by experience. Touch not
private interests, whether represented
by impersonal corporations or individu
als. Never use the credit of the State,
except in the interests of the State. Tax
equally and alike all property sutject to
tnxation, but tax none oppressively.
Give to your government the character
of thrift and economy, of honesty and
stability, of justice and equality in all
civil and political rights of protection
to all and oppression of none for the
selfish reason, if there be no higher mo
" The eternal laws of Justice bind
Oppreor wltti Opprotfced."
Do these things, and population and
wealth will How In upon us under the
same inilueuces that give to the laws of
gravitation their unvarying character
the principle of attraction acting in har
mony with the principle of stability, or
der and progress. This "valley of the
Tennessee" is the EdeL of the south. A
new era is dawning upon tic Dasec
tionalized in our institutions by the pro
vidence of Gcd, let us nationallza our
civilization uy infusing into it all the
elements of growth, power, and progress
of every section, north, east and west.
Disintegrate our large plantations, con
verting one heritage into many farms.
Diversify our labor, by making it multi
form, and yet homogeneous. Utilize the
immense waste of waters, which bisect
our mountains and ovcrllow our valleys,
and run iu riotous idleness to the gusf.
Plant tpindles and looms where
native oaks now stand upon vir
gin toil, making the dead silence
of the ages intolerable to human life.
Disembowel, from their centuries of re
fuse, the iron and the coal that only
await the hour of resurrection to be coin
ed into gold. Harmonize the races by
giving equal protection to all. Face not
to the rear, marching backward to the
future, but "front face," moving forward
from the past. Then, though it may not
Moom and blossom as the garden of
Paradise, when God himself walked
hand in hand with Adam and Eve, still
this our Eden shall become glorious with
a new life,and we shall be buoyant with
new hope, grow strong in a new destiny,
and make great and prosperous a new
Tiiese are indeed words of wisdom.
These noble and manly sentiments; the
spirit of pure and lofty patriotism which
inspires every line and breathes in every
word of the above extract, show that
General Walker is just such a man as is
needed in the State convention called
for revising the constitution. The pic
ture which the eloquent Alabamian
draws of the south is no exaggeration.
By acting upon his advice our people
will become great and prosperous. We
have all been looking on the dark side
of the picture, moaning and groaning
long enough. Despondency is no incen
tive to industry. Such words a8 the
above, words of encouragement and
hope, words of counsel and of confi
dence, are worth more than lugubrious
forebodings. The south is on the eve of
au era of progress and prosperity such
as she has never seen before. Pu9h on
EDUCATION IN THE SOUTH.
Will the Radicals never weary in mis
representing the south? As fast as ono
falsehood Is nailed to the counter an
other rises in its place. So soon as one
calumBy llickers out another sprouts
upon its ignoble grave. The j-er.'eot
peace and tranquillity that pervades the
seuth shames into contempt and silence
every ellort to manufacture outrages;
but some charge must be fabricated or
else the Radical party would perish.
Everything else having failed, theBidi
cil papers are now busy in an efibit to
create the impression that the south is
throwing every impediment in the way
of the education of the negro. This
falsehood originated with the Chicago
Tribune, and it is now retailed by such
jwpers as the New York Untes. That
paper lectures the south as though our
people were opposed to the education of
the colored race. Tnis is the work of
supereiogation. The negroes of the
south pay no taxes, but they have all
the educational advantages of the whites
who pay tle taxes, and against whom
the negro is solidly arrayed. The educa
tional facilities of the south are not per
fect; they arc not such as the people
desire and will have. Bat they are
as good as circumstances will permit.
So toon as the south recovers 'rom the
bankruptcy entailed upon therby the
corruptions of carpetbag plunderers; so
soon as our people are able to bear the
burdens necessary for educational pur
poses, they will organize a perfect and
complete school system. States that
oannotpay the interest on the public
debt, pileJ upon tho tax-payer by Radi
cal villainy, cannot see their property
confiscated to raise an .extravagant
school fund. At present there is no dis
crimination made between the whites
aad blacks. The statistics will fchow
that, iu proportion to population, tho
Waeka have as many children at school
in Tennessee as the whites. All the
trouble between the two races in the
south can be traced directly totheig
noraaee of the blacks. It is therefore
to the interest of the south
that the negroes be educated. It
is a saving to the tax-paying wnites to
eee that the non-tax-paying negroes are
educated. And it is certainly the duty
of the southern States to educate the
masses. A government without civili
sation, intelligence, education, good
morals and religion, rink into auarehy
and lawlessness. An iguoraut people-
can never be prosperous and happy
Universal education is the desire ef th
-.ir.tth. But a poor, penniless, tax-rid
den people cannot adopt a complicated
and extravagant school system for either
white or black until they free Uiem
selves from burdens imposed upon them
by the Radical plunderers, whose mis
deeds have retarded for years those edu
cational facilities for which they clamor.

Colonel W. W. Gates, of the Hender
sou Advocate, is a staunch friend of
Memphis, and has been for years, as
appears from the last number of the
Advocate. He has done as much for the
improvement of West Tennessee as any
man in it, and we now hope that his
fondest anticipations may be realized
and that he and the flourishing village
that he has made the home of his latter
days may prosper in all things and reap
the rewards of energy and enterprise,
He says: "That Memphis has lost a vast
amount of trade from the interior coun
ties of West Tennessee, is well known to
all of her business men there and else
where. This trade was lost many years
ago by a sbort-Bighted policy of some of
her public men. Had they heeded the
advice of the humble writer of this arti
cle, and given their support to extend
ing the branch road from Somerville to
Jackson, instead of opposing it, the Mo
bile and Ohio road would have diverged
from about Okolona, Mississippi, and
struck for Memphis, and then have
formed a connection with St Louis by a
road from the opposite side of the river,
If Jackson had got the road from Somer
ville, there would have been no eight
hundred thousand dollars raised in this
section for the Mobile road. But this
cannot now be undone, yet Memphis has
it in her power to regain some of this
lost trade, and create a vast amount of
new trade now seeking other markets,

Knoxville and who can computo the

Brownsville, June 22. I have been
in this place a short timo and during my
short stay have made many picasant ac
quaintances. Circuit court 13 now in
session, but will auiourn.iiearn, as soon
as possible, in order to cive the farmers

made. I learned here that they would

with young Mr. Band, who killed Med-
lin; a more pleasant, agreeable ana nice
nentleman I have never ceen. The ac
counts which were published in regard
to that allair in some ol the papers were,
from what l can learn, very erroneous,
and did him great injustice.
No one can be acquainted with
him and believe he would
be guilty of a high crime. I saw the
speaker of the last house of representa
tives of the Tennessee legislature. Me

successful farmers in West Tennessee,
Judge E. J. Read, is a member of the
Brownsville bar. He has this year
raised seven hundred bushels of wheat,
be3ides having fine crops of corn, cotton
and other things. Hon. B. J. Lea, who
is too well known for it to be necessary
to say anything in regard to him, is
largely interested in the new llounng'
mill established here, and is taking an
active part in its management. .Browns
