lamp burning, without a chimney. Dur
ing the night the bed-clothing took fire
from the lamp, and burned until the
flames communicated with a can of alco
hol which sat near the bed, exploding
the can and literally covering the bed
and its inmates with immense sheets of
flame, by which they were burned al
most to death. It is stated that the
flesh was actually cooked to tho bones.

Centennial Celebration al tbe Great
Irlili Agitator nml l,lberntor
Sketch of Ilia Career.
The centennial of O'Connell's birth,
which occurs on the sixth of the
preseut month, will be celebrated by his
countrymen in a thousand places scat
tered over the world, it will be a sort
of jubilee that will send its echoes
around the world, for there are fifteen
millions of his countrymen scattered
over the earth who hold his memory
sacred on account of his genius, his con
stant labors for his countrymen, and the
exceptional grandeur of his character,
He was the best specimen of a peaceful
agitator that ever lived. When he made
his debut in public life, at tho age of
twenty-four, his countryman suiiered
under various disabilities, and many
grievous, disabling statues stood against
them on the law-books. He became tho
leader of the political struggle that
aimed at emancipating the Catholics,
who were not allowed a voice in the
united parliament of Great Britain and
Ireland. When he "ran" for the posi
tion of member of parliament, many of
his own countrymen and co-religionists
were dubious, while the Tories in ling
land sneered at bis impudence. He was
elected, and presented himself at the
bar of the house of commons alone to
be sworn in. He was surrounded by
live hundred members, all frotestants
and generally antagonistic to his claims
He was rejected. Going back again
to the county Clare, ho ran the
race again, and was again elected
and took his seat, the emancipation act
having in the meantime passed. From
that time onward he became tbe leader
of the resurrected nationality in Ireland,
and fought with a pertinacity and vigor
that extorted the admiration and praise
o' his enemies, for dissolution of the
legislative union that bound Ireland hand
aud foot to England. In the zenith of
his popular glory, when Ireland possessed
over eight minions or people, he gath
ered together a series of monster meet
ings in various prominent parts of the
island, that were said to number nearly
a million of men, and those vast masses
were managed by his genius as effectu
ally as a skilled commander could move
a brigade on a held of battle. The ven
eration in which ho is held by the peo
ple he led so long is not to be understood
by our practical nature. On Friday next.
tbe sixth of August, there will be perhaps
a minion or people gatnerea together in
Dublin, a city wnose normal population
is about four hundred thousand. Our
fure'gn exchanges tell us that additional
steamers will be put on duty, running
from Glasgow, Liiverpooi, Holyhead, and
other English ports to Dublin, to carry
the throngs of Irishmen who are anx
ious to participate in the ceremonies of
tho day. The procession there will be
immense, for every town in Ireland will
send heavy delegations, and the enthu
siastic citizens themselves, always fit to
make an astonishing display of that
sort, will hardly find room to
march in the interminable line
that will move to Glasneven cemetery,
where O'Connell rests under an Irish
round-tower. In the United States the
celebration will, of course,be mere echoes
of that at Dublin, but will neverthe
less be gigantic and spirited. The con
vention cf Irish societies in New York
have decided on a celebration. The
eame sort of action was taken in Brook
lyn. Jersey City will participate.
Washington City has provided for an ex
tensive celebration. In other cities the
fame and memory of O'Connell will be
duly honored. What has been done in
Memphis so far has not been made pub
lic, but the national spirit is quite fer
vent here, and tho admirers or O'Con
nell are among our most prominent
Irish-Americans. O'Connell was seventy-two
years old at the time of his
death, in 1S47, which took place in the
city of Genoa, while on his way to Ron e
to pay his addresses to the pope. He
was a staunch Catholic as well as an

Jackson, August 3. The Democratic
Conservative State convention to-day
was in every respect a grand success,
There has been no such political gather
ing in Mississippi since 18G1. All the
prominent men of the State are present.
and an immense crowd of the very
flower of the State. The greatest en
thusissm prevails, and the predictions
of success in the coming canvass are
universal. Tho convention was called
to order at eleven o'clock by Colonel J,
M. Stone, of Tishomingo, chairman of
the executive committee. On motion
of .Major H. H. Chalmers, of DeSoto, a
temporary organization was dispensed
with, and Ex-Governor Charles Clarke
was declared permanent president; J
L. Power, of Hinds, was chosen
secretary, and J. L. M'Caskill, of
Rankin, and Paul Botto, of Adams
as assistants. The following gentlemen
were appointed as a committee on reso
lutions, to whom all resolutions were re
ferred without debate, namely: John
W. C. Watson, W. P. Harris, W. H
M'Cardle, W. H, H. Tison, J. M. Stone,
H. H. Chalmers, Kinh ch Falconer, W,
F. Tucker, R. W. Williamson, W. A,
Percy, O.R. Singleton, A. J. Frantz, W.
T. Martin and Ben Ring. During the
absence of the committee Hon. L. Q. C.
Lamar was introduced toj'the conven
tion, and was received with deafeniDg
applause. The hall of the house of iep
reBentatives was densely packed and
hundreds were unablo to gain admit
tance. Colonel Lamar spoke for two
hours and a half to an intensely atten
tive audience. Hi3epeechwas;the most
magnificent specimen of eloquence that
has been heard in the State for years,
His arraignment cf the Radical southern
government was terrible, and his dis
section of Ames and his crew in
Mississippi was pitiless. The conclud
ing portion of the speech was devoted to
a discussion of the color-line, and he
wa3 truly eloquent in his opposition to
the madness of eucn a policy, ino
synopsis can do justics to the speech. It
was pronounced by Lamar's friends the
grandest effort of his life, while hundreds
declared that it was the ablest speech
thev ever lieard. Hon. W. L. Hem-
mingway was unanimously nominated
for state treasurer.
Resolved. That each county be allow.

votes as it has in the lower branch of

Opposition was mado in an animated
addrc-83 to the term "Conservative" in
the preamble, by Mr. M'Cardle of War
ren county. The platform was support
ed by Wiley P. Harris and Amos R.
Johnston, of Hinds county, and adopt
ed by a vote of 162 to 33. Despite the
opposition of some of tho delegates, all
are willing to accept it and work through
the canvas with a will to defeat tue
Radical party in November.
An able executive committee, with
General J. Z. George, of Hinds, as
chairman was appointed.
The convention adjourned about dark,
and to-night bands of music are parad
ing tbe streets and cannon firing, and
numerous speeches will be made by va
rious distinguished orators.
CHARLES E. HOOKER'S NOMINATION.
Special to iho Appeal.
Jackson, Miss .August 3. The dele
gates from the fifth congressional dis
trict met in the senate chamber this
evening, F. C. Catchings, Eq , presid
ing. Colonel Charles E, Hooker was
nominated on the first ballot, ami his
nomination was at once made unani
mous by acclamation. He has accepted
the nomiaatlon and is now making a
magnificent speech. His nomination is
received with the greatest enthusiasm.
His appearance in the representative
hall to-night was a wild ovaMon. Tho
skies are ablaze with the light of vic
tory. O. R. Singleton was nominated
for congress from the fourth district.
Associate Press Dispatch 1
Jackson, August 3. The largest po
litical convention ever held in Missis
sippi assembled here to-day. Sixty
counties were reprecnted. More than
three hundred delegates were present,
including Ex-Governors Brown, Clark
and Humphrey. Ex-Governor Clark
was elected president by acclamation.
While the committe on resolutions were
preparing their report, Colonel Lamar
addressed the convention for three
hours, in the most powerful effort
of his life. His opposition to the
color-line policy may be said to have
killed that policy, as soon after, by a
test vote, it was almost unanimously
voted down. W. L, Hemmingway, chief
State Granger, was nominated for State
senator. Tho platform is confined to
State matters. It recognizes to tho full
est extent the social aud political t qual
ity of all men, and asks tbe aid aud
votes of all parties and races in the es
tablishment of good government. Great
enthusiasm prevails, aud leading men
express confidence in tho Conservative
Democracy carrying the State !h'- frill.
The convention adjourned till fvp
o'clock at night. The district commit
tee nominated General W. T. Martin in
the sixth, and Colonel O. R Singleton
in the fourth congressional districts.
LETTERS i'KOJl THE PEOPaE.
CKnerol Pillow for Senator.
Editors Appeal Inadequate as we
are to the task of giving proper expres
sion ot tbe profound sentiments of re
spect and kind regard entertained by
our citizens for one of nature' noble
men General Gideon J. Pillow we
yet venture to present the following
suggestions for approval and adoption,
believing, with many others, that the
appointment would be for the pub
lic weal. We are proud of Ten:iefse'a
oft-asserted good sense in honoring her
valuable citizens while they are alive,
and departing from tbe ludicrous cus
tom of postponing evidences of the kind
dnvotionifor the usual posUmoriem pow
wow, equally as Hilly as it is gaudy,
heartless aud insincere. And now, while
we cluster around the altar of our do
parted citizen and statesman, Audrew
Johnson, and mingle in sentiments of
honest regret for his Joss with the mul
titudes that will know htm no more, we
have the consoling assurance that wo
honored him iu life, and have done our
duty. Therefore, while with becoming
grace, we breathe effusions of sincere
sorrow and true regret for his loss, let
us, one and all promptly, by petition,
invite His Excellency Governor Porter
to appoint the distinguished gentleman
and soldier, General Gideon J. Pillow,
to represent us in the senate of the
United States. The name cf General
Pillow is a household word, and ia loved
by every elegant citizen all over our
country. His elegance and true worth
has engrafted a sterling regard for him
in the minds of all who personally know
him, and we confidently assert his ap
pointment win give satisiaciiou to our
whole country, and reflect that com
plexion on us that is justly ours.
v e.v it'jx-uiji.
Editors Appeal Many ideas have
been suggested, both at home and
abroad, devising ways aud mean3 for
the accommodation of the vast multi
tude that will visit the Centennial iu
1876. These examples, I think, are
worthy of imitation, and we of Mem
phis should not be behind. Unless
everything is systematized, there will
be but little satisfaction or pleasure to
visit such a scene of confusion as will be
witnessed at Philadelphia during the
exposition. There are, of course, a great
many from Memphis and the surround
ing country and towns, who expect or
would like to attend, if they were as
sured of proper accommodation aud
knew what the necessary cost would be
for a given length of time, and knew
they would not be imposed upon. It is
in this connection that I wish to make
some suggestions to our people, viz.:
At a meeting of the city council
or board of trade let there be a
representative man (or men, as it
may be deemed necessary), appointed
or elected, and the election approved by
tho mayor, and a email salary paid him
by the ci'y to cover the necessary ex
penses of his office; and let it be made
the duty of this man to go to Pbiladel-
Ehia by the time the first articles are
eing placed on exhibition, and give
each article worthy of note stri :t per
sonal attention and study, learning the
history or nature of the sam f as to
act as a guide, conducting a squad of fif
teen or tweutv. devoting an hour to each
squad, thus calling attention and giving
the history of hundreds of articles that
would be of great interest, and would
probably be overlooked by casual ob
servation. Especially let it be made his
duty tojengage the best board, for the
least money, that is to be had; to make
arrangements for the reception of all
visitors from Memphis and vicinity who
may notify him of their coming, and to
answer ail reasonable communications
of inquiry. This will require a man of
honesty and integrity one that will work
for the accommodation or tne people,
and not for his own comfort and gain
a man who is pleasant and polite, and
who will answer queftiona civilly, re
membering that is what he is paid lor.
If this meets your approbation, you will
please present it to the people through
your valuable paper, and let's see what
can be done in the premiso3. I cou'd
give further particulars which would be
of use, if the suggestion should bo
adopted. J S. w.

An Admirable i'rogranlme Artistically
Interpreted s.n Inimcuao rovril
jfzeaenf rmnre Concert.
The first of the proposed series of con
certs iu Court square, under the musical
direction cf Professor Herman Arnoid,
was given last night, aud was an im
mense success a gieater rucceys than
wns anticipated, from the fact that un
til night before last It was un
certain whether the concerts could
be given at all, aa the commit
tee from the Casiuo club, under
whoo auspice3 the enterprise has been
revived, found much difficulty in raiding
a sutlieier t fund for the purpose; a?id the
single day's announcement in the papers
yesterday morning was not expected to
convey the intelligence so generally that
tho first concert would take place. But
the public expectation has been on tip
too ever since it was first announced
that the effort was on foot, aud tlie mere
mention that tbe committee had suc
ceeded in their efforts in follectiug a
sufficient amount to justify the initial
concert did not escape their attention,
aud last night the square was literally
thronged with the best classes of our cit
izens, who manifested theirappreciation
and delight by remaining, the crowd
even increasing uutl! the last
notes of the excellont programme
interpreted by the baud had died on the
er, and tho Square-keeper's warning
bell announced the hour for locking the
gatea. Too much praise cannot be ac
corded the gentlemen of the committee
for the earnest effort in furtherance of
these pleasurable entertainments, that
will contribute so much to the public
eDjoyment. Nothing occurred last night,
so far as we could learn, to mar the
geueral enjoyment or disturb tho equi
librium of the most fastidious, except
tlie boisterousness of the children while
the band was executing some of the
mo3t beautiful passages, but when wo
take in consideration that the littio fel
lows have had so few such opportuni
ties for enjoyment the past
couple of years, it was per
fectly natural their spontaneous jollity
would go a littio beyond reasonable
bounds; but we speak lor all of the little
peoplo and say they will otaerve the
"proper rests" next time. W also
heard some complaint of the too-enthusiastic
demonstrations of one or two
children ot the elder series. We have
no apology to oiler for them; if they do
not know how to conduct themselves in
so large as assemblage of decent people,
they had better stay away, as we are as
sured that Chief Athy will be requested
to furnish a detail of special policemen
for the benefit of such as may prove un
ruly "duriDg meeting." The Court
squsre concerts are not a new institution
in Memphis. Several yeais ago the en
terprising and wide-awake Lou Lsubrie
conceived tho idea and went to work
with his che.r. cteristi ? energy, aud the
first series of conceits was given, lasting
through the entire heated term.
Since then several efforts have been
madi to keep them up, but up
to the present time without succes until
the Casino club took the matter in hand,
which has so fir met with sufficient
encouragement to begin the series. The
encouragement to our home musicians
in the sustaining of these concerts is
most commendable, and we must say
right here that this disposition on the
part oi our citizens has steadily mani
fested itself in the past few years, until
now we can boast the best class of mu
sicians, profesuonally and socially, to
bo found anywhere, and though not so
largo in number, our bauds and orches
tras will compare favorably with any in
the Union. This is the result of the en
couragement extended them by a
generous and appreciative public, which
disposition we are glad to notice ia
steadily and surely increasing. The
gentlemen musicians composing Ar
nold's band did themselves credit last
night in the interpretation of the follow
ing programme, several of the selections
composing which aie cf an entirely new
composition, and rehearsed expressly fir
thi3 first concert:
1 M'Cameron's Quickstep E. Beyer

The committee and Professor Arnold
have notjyet agreed upon the time for the
next concert, but Friday night is spoken
of. Due notice, together with the pro
gramme of music, will be given through
the press. Among the contributors to
ward these concerts we must mention
the most liberal and certainly valuable
one by Hitzfeld & Son, who have agreed
to light up the music-stand and grand
stand free of charge during the concert
reason. If all able to do no would come
up half as liberally, the entire serie3 con
templated would be an assured success.
