'THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-THUESDA Y, AUOITST 5, 1875.
AL'UUST 5, 1875.
have been to the St. Louis ItnyubHcan,
which excellent journal has always
been friendly anil lenient to Mr. Johnson.
Tennt.- was admitted as ono of the
United Statea In 17&6. She has had,
therefore, a senatorial e ervice of seven
tyulne years. Two senators have, with
hnt brief Interregnum during the
war. represented her and the great in
teresta of her people in tho senate since
her fin admission into the Union
There has been, therefore, a service of
on hundred and fifty years, and 'it is
with pride that a Tennessoan can now
paint to the illustrious men who have
filled the greater portion of that service
with honor to the State, is eed we recall
their names? They live in the history
of our oouutry, and have left their ex
ample of virtue, fidelity to principle
Integrity and patriotism as our proud
efet heritage. Among them are
two Presidents, the great soldier and
statesman Andrew Jackson, the great
commoner, and lover of his country's
ccnstitutiou. Andrew Johnson, whose
grave was closed on Tuesday, and for
whose untimely death we all sincerely
mourn; two Presidential candidates.
flu. Lawson White, one of the fathers
of the gTeat "Whig party, and John Bel!,
one of iU greatest champions; John H.
Elton, secretary of war under Jackson ;
Ephralm H. Foster, the great orator and
logician; Felix Grundy, than whom in
hij day there was no abler debater or
greater statesman, and James C. Jones,
whom we all knew, loved and honored,
and who?e mighty intellect and match-
lees eloquence we all remember. Hence
it is fitting the vacancy which now exists
fhould be filled only after mature delib-
eratien by Governor Porter, and in com
nion with our fellow-citizens, we com
mend him for his action in refusing to
be interviewed on that subject. During
the entire senatorial service, it so hap
nened that not one citizen of West
Tennestea ever filled a seat in the
senate. Governor Jones moved here
shortly after his election, and the effi
ciency of his efiorta in behalf of our pros
perity is attested by the magnificent
succees of the Memphis and Charleston
railroad, of which he was the originator.
That we have grown since then to have
great commercial and agricultural inter
ests, which require the fostering care of
national legislation, none can gainsay.
That we need it is evidenced by the
thousands of acres of our most prolific
lands now inundated for the want of it.
Yet, even with all our varied interests,
wo are not of those who measure the
qualifications of our citizaiiB for places
of high trust and honor beoau3e of their
happening to live within certain imag
inary geographical lines. Other things
Using equal, we would prefer a senator
from among us, because he would know
our need, understand our .situation and
how essentially necessary it is for us to
receive the fostering care of the govern
ment, that we may prosper commer
cially, and agriculturally. With the
purpose of giving the public ser
vices of those in West Tennessee whoso
name3 we have heard suggested for tho
appointment of senator, we commence
with a native Tennessean, who deserv
edly has a national reputation Isham i
G. Harris. He was first known in pub-1
lie life as the member from Heniy in !
the cession of 1847, elected a member of I
congress in a WThig district in 1S19, re
elected by an increased majority in 1851 ;
declined a re-election in 1853; declined
to be a candidate for gubernatorial nom
ination in 1S53; elector for the State-at-large
for Buchanan and Breckinridge
in 18-56; unanimously nominated for
governor by the Democrats in 185
and defeated General Robert Hatton ;
re-nominated in 1859 and defeated Col
onei j no. rtetneriana; re-elected in
1881 over Colonel Wm. H. Polk, and
duriDg tho entire war held the office,
Governor Harris has been a consistent,
earnest Democrat through life, and at
all times. In the heated political can
vass, in the quiet walks of life, and in
the trying vicissitudes, horrors and cor
ruptions of war, friends and foes alike
have had the most implicit confidence
in his honor and integrity; and, per
haps, the plain truth is, the greatest
compliment which can be paid him,
that he has yet to do an act to forfeit
that confidence. Then comes Judge
Archibald Wright, who was also a mem
ber of the legislature in 1847, and the
chairman of the judiciary committee, is
probably to-day one of the best informed
lawyers in the country, was appointed by
Governor Harris in 185S to fill the vacan
cy in the supreme bench occasioned by
the death of Judge Wm. R. Harris, was
elected also to fill the vacancy at the
special election over Judge Elijah
AValker. Judgo Wright served on tho
bench with distinction and credit, and
his decisions are master pieces of legal
learning. We have heard also the
name of our well known fellow citizen
Judge T. W. Brown. He was born in
Kentucky, moved to Memphis just be
fore the war; served with distinction in
the Confederate army, and was one of
the judge advocates of the army of Ten
nessee, which position he filled with
great credit and abilily. Judge Brown
is a finished scholar, an accomplished
orator and a thoroughly trained lawyer.
Outside of Memphis wo have heard
mentioned General Alexander Campbell
of Madison county, and Colonel John
A. Gardner, of Weakly caunty. They
are both of acknowledged ability and
representative men in their sections,
and enjoy the confidence and esteem ot
their friends and neighbors. General
Campbell served with credit as a
brigadier-general in the Confederate
army, and in the constitutional con
vention oflS70; was a candidate Jfor
congress in Lis district in 1872, but was
defeated, because of other promi
nent Democrats being candidates,
byDaveXunn, of Brownsville. Colo
nel Gardner has repeatedly served in
mo legislature a3 a member of J
both houses, and was also a mem
ber of the constitutional convention
hrleily we have hurried over the public
services of those citizens of West Ten
nessee prominently mentioned for sena
tor. It is our earnest wish that their
names, their capacity, acquirements and
fitness be weighed in connection with
those of our fellow-citizens who live in
the eastern and middle divisions of the
State, and who seek the high honor of
filling the position the highest in lur
gift. With the election of the governor
we shall be content. All we ask is the
selection of a man who will bo alike
the pride oi East, Middle and West
Tenneee, and who will be the peer of
Conkling, Morton and Edmunds, and
the equal of Gordon, Kiernan and

The O'Conuell centennial, of which we
published some facte ye:terday, in a
sketch of the great agitator, is occasion
ing already a great stir in Ireland and
p. nong the EDglish mastersof that most
unfortunate of islands. The British
ministry, in a, spirit such as prompted
the presence of Disraeli at tho Byron
monument meeting in London a few
days since, are willing to do honor to a
man whose ability as an orator, parlia
mentary debater and popular leader ia
one of the mot valued legacies of his
country, but they fear tho congregation
of so large a mass of people in Dublin as
promises to assemble on Friday next,
With ail the march of events, the gov
erning classes of Great Britain have not
learned to trust the people; they have
not learned the great lesson, m little
understood even here in free America,
that if a government is conducted fairly,
in the interests of ell, all will
alike be satisfied. Public opinion, like
water, find its 'evel. Like the Missis
sippi, it has many tributaries; each of
which conveys something to the great
channel, swelling its volume until at
last it overflows its banks and drowns
out all that is effete and valueless. The
British government is still managed in
the interest of the classes who have
money, titles, or privileges, and without
regard to the.rights and claimo of those
who labor; hence the dread of. a popular
gathering which, while it would do
hmor and homage to the memory of
O'Conuell, might also take on the form
of a silent protest against the class leg
islation, aud tyranny, and class ex'
actions, against which not even O'Con-
nell as fully protested as he would had
he not been tinctured with the
aristocratic feeling which has cursed
and blighted so many glorious intel
lects in the "old countiy." But O'Con
of the people, who sympathised with
those of Ireland in so far as they did
not possess the privileges conceded to
those of England, but he had no mind
for tho larger measure of liberty for
which Mitchell, Meagher, Dsvi3 and
Smith O'Brien struggled in vain. He
was neither Democrat nor Republican,
For him the British constitution, flag
aud crown, with all their ancient sur
roundings, were sufficient. His policy
was conciliation and peace. For his
time and country, as events proved, it
was a good policy, bcciuse it was safe,
and insured at least a littlo of the re-
farm every year for which ho and his
people had so long agitated the - politics
of Great Britain. He was an honest
and upright man, full of the kindly
sympathies of his race, and labored zeal
ously, accomplishing more man any
man of his time, in the face of obsta
cles, too, that appalled many equally
brave hearts. Ireland and Irishmen
owe him a lasting uent ot gratitude,
ono that the centennial celebrations
of Friday and tho monumonts erected to
his memory do not half riquite. Re
membering this, wo trust tho Irishmen
of Memphis will not permit the occasion
to pass without such recognition as it
deserves. They should assemble cn
masse, and by appropriate resolutions
aud eulogies, put themselves on record
us eincere and ardent admirers of the
greatest man, "take him for all in all"
that Ireland has ever produced.

Pacheco, lieutenant-governor, whose

Democratic, Republican and Independ
ent. California was a Democratic State
from 1852 to 18G1 inclusive, since which
time it has been chiefly Republican. It
elected a Democratic governor in 1867,
Democratic supreme judges in 1889. and
an Independent governor in 1873. New
ton 5ooth naving been elected to the
senate of the United States, his office is
ntieu by tne lieutenant-governor. The
Independent party in California seems
to Hold tne balance of power at this
time. Local issues enter so largely into
the canvass that it is not easy to say
whether the majority of the voters in
California are now opposed to Grant's
administration or not. Whether Re
publicans or Democrats are in the
ascendant there it is quite certain that
the great majority of the people favor
home-rule, low revenue tariff, and a re
turn to a specie measure of values.

The Is aw York Herald of Saturday
last revived the Nathan murder from
the testimony of an ex-pollce olllcer
named Sidney H. Conkling, delivered
the day before to the legislative commit
tee for the prevention ot crime, sitting
in New York city for the special pur
pose of investigating tho mismanage
ment and misconduct of tho police cap
tains and privaUs. Mf. Uonklirg told
a mo3t interesting story of a burglary,
and hisefibrts to detect and arrest tho
criminal. He succeeded iu this endeavor
after exerting considerable ingenuity
and patience. "Hu' K !.'-.is witness is to
be believed," says tl, j New YutkJIerald,
"tno prisoner proved to bo a most valua
ble one for the reason that he soemed to
furnish an important and decided link in
the chain of evidence pointing to the real
murderer of Mr. Benjamin Nathan.
The statements mado by this witness
undoubtedly create a deep impression,
and although some of the facts stated by
him ore denied by those I19 mentions,
still it i3 quite apparent that we are on
the eve cf developments that may result,
in something moro.important than any-:
thing that has transpired since the com
mittee began its sessions." But unfortu
nately for the Herald, all thestatements
rf Mr. Conkling were denied by the par
lies to whom he made reference, among
them Inspector Dilke, and the members

The evidence so far adduced is most
damaging to the chief officers, reveal
ing a state of things that must
alarm the general public and give the
criminal classes hope. The Herald,
iu its report of the proceed
Ings, admits as a dL-graceful aud
discreditable fact that tho "deparfment
of police, to which has been committed
the care of the lives and property of our
citizens, hag for soms time bsen para
lyzed and weakened by tho criminal
action of its leading officers. This is no
Idlo statement, for it is too susceptible of
proof to be controverted. Day after day
the readers of the Herald have been
given statements made by witnesses
before the committee that were astound
ing in their nature. Captains of police
were boldly accused of having protected
professional gamblers in the exercise cf
their nefarious business. Other officers
of the same important and hitherto hon
orable rank have been also described a3
levying a species of hideous blackmail
upon poor creatures who gained a liveli
hood by a life of shame. Not only
were captains of police thu3 charged,
but thero wound credible witnesses who
appeared and accused certain officers of
that rank of having shared in the spoils
of that despicable claes of criminals
known as panel-thieves."
