Our thanks are due to John S.. Toof,

The committees appointed by the cotton
exchange were at work yesterday collecting
aid for the Fernandina sufferers, and last
night Mr.' John S. Toof, secretary of the ex
change, telegraphed to the mayor of Fer
nandina authority to draw for eight hundred
dollars. The good work will be continued
to-day, and the above amount, it is hoped,
increased to three thousand dollars, or more.
Persons not called on by the committee can
leave contributions at the exchange to-day.
In speaking of General Forrest's death,
the JNaahville American of yesterday says:
" Just before we go to press comes the mel
ancholy intelligence that General N. B. For
rest is no more. For several weeks his friends
had seen that the end was not far off, but the
sad event will be learned with none the less
sorrow throughout the south. Thus has
passed away one of the most brilliant of all
the military leaders who were prominent in
our war of the sections, and in many respects
one of the most remarkable men this country
has produced. His moderation and wise con
servatism of conduct since the surrender has
been hardly less worthy of admiration than
his extraordinary achievements in battle. Tra
duced and misrepresented while he lived, im
partial history will award him his true place
among the heroic men of his time."

Nashville A merican, 30th : Colonel Wiley
Woodard died at his residence, four miles
east of Springfield, on last Sunday evening,
in the sixty-eighth year of his age. For two
years he had been an invalid from a paralytic
disorder. He was a man of unusual energy.
Though not seeking public station, he was
elected to and served a term in the legisla
ture. He accumulated a large fortune in the
distillery business, and died respected by the
community at large-by whom he was surround
ed. He was noted for hospitality, and strong
Miss Genevieve Rogers, in Bona, had an
other good audience at the Memphis Theater
last night, As "Bona," she is just the most
artistic bonita imaginable. To night and to
morrow night Miss Rogers takes the title role
in Maud Muller, a dramatized poem, which,
upon its previous presentation in this city, has
drawn full houses. Miss Rogers makes a
good "Maud Muller," and we hope to see
her attract large audiences. The play is re
plete with interest. It embodies a great deal
that is instructive to the feelings, and
throughout is pervaded with a vein of tender
ness and pathos which enlist the sympathy of
all who appreciate the aesthetic! in a drama
of this character. How well Miss Rogers
sustains the rule of "Maud Muller," we leave
to the judgment of the many who were so
?lea8antly entertained by her last season,

Editors- Appeal I have a few words to
say to the workingmen of Memphis, and as
the Appeal is the best medium for reaching
the masses, I will take advantage of your
liberality and ask that yon publish this. I
am emphatically a workingman have earned
my bread by the sweat of my brow since I
was a very small bjy and think I have as
good a right to speak for the wotkintrman as
anv one in Memphis. But I am not a
political workingman, therefore will not dis
cuss politics, but something that will be of
practical ueneut to every citizen oi juempnis,
but esoeciallT those of moderate means. A
proposition has been made to form a co
operative coal association in this city, and I
think if the diff erent organization of work
ingmen would take an interest in it there
would be little difficulty in making it a us
ees. Within the last two months the price
of coal has gone op from forty-two and a half
cents to seventy cents per barrel, and that.
too. wit bout Bar apparent cause, l&a poor
mi tHe W r- 'wra 1 ' ' -Tt V-- t
workingmen really wish to accomplish some
thing tiiat will be of practical benefit to the
great mass of their fellow men, they have the
opportunity of doing so. As I do not belong
to the organization, I simply suggest that
books for stock i- opened in the different
wards of the city, say tor ten days, and at the
end of that time let each ward dub send del
egate's to the central club, with instructions
to eloct officer, say a president and secre
tary. By this means we can get coal for, at
moat, fifty cents per barrel all winter, where
as now we have to pay seventy cents, and yet
cold weather has not come upon ns. Perhaps
we may be glad to get it at one dollar per
barrel before the winter is over. Would it
not be a good idea for Mr. Wiggs to work
with th t different clubs of this city ? The
only personal interest 1 have in the subject is
to get coal at a fair price; therefore am per
fectly indifferent as to who shall manage the
finance of the association. Will some of our
ward clubs take the lead in this and let su
have cheap coal.
THE BRITISH GRAIN TRADE.

M later Wheat Heavy tawa) !
terferlmar with Owtatavmd
ias; Craps la tteatlaaal.
London, October 30. The Mark Lane
Express, in a review ol the British grain
trad. Bays that during intervals of sunshine
the paxt week good progress was mads with
sowing winter wheat. The heavy snow fall
which occurred in the north of Scotland en
tirely prevented the ripening of outstanding
crops, which have been cut in a green state
for catUe. The present season has been un
usually disastrous to agriculturists. A good
deal of English wheat has been threshed out
lately with results which, while confirming
the general shortness of- the crop, scarcely
bear out the low estimate of nine million
five hundred thousand quarters at which the
yield has been recently placed by certain ag
ricultural authorities. For all practical pur
poses our own computation of eleven mil
lion quarters, made in August last, is. sub
stantially correct, and, taking the annual re
quirements of the country at twenty-three
million five hundred thousand quarters, we
must still be indebted to foreign importations
to the extent of twelve or thirteen million
between this and the first of August, 1878,
as the reserves of old wheat in farmers
hands at the commencement of harvest was
quite insignificant. Should importation con
tinue at the rate it has been doing lately, just
grounds might be found tor anticipating a glut
of wheat, but the present time is the heaviest
in the year, as far as imports are concerned,
owing to the large outward movement which
takes place during the autumn from ports
which are ice-bound in winter. Our future
requirements no doubt will be met, consider
ing the quantity and quality of American
crops, and the reins of prices will be, doubtless,
in a large measure in' the hands of that
country, out it is difficult to foresee any ma
terial alteration in the present range of val
ues as, even if a fall of five shillings per
quarter took place, it is not unlikely that
America would ship maize in the place of
wheat, and prices would readjust themselves,
under lighter imports and the increased win
ter consumption weak, but in trade
it is beginning to show itself. Indian
produce still reaches ns in considerable
quantities, and now that America has
resumed her old supremacy in the van of na
tions to whom we look for wheat, India be
comes an extra source of supply without
any corresponding outlet. Millers for the mo
ment appear to hare lost something of
their old predilection for this class of grain,
and as holders do not seem inclined to give
way, transactions recently have been the re
verse of extensive; not that much larger sup
plies are overwhelming the market and a gen
eral slackness of country demand for trade has
been active in this description of wheat, but
the recent decline of a shilling per quarter
has been chiefly upon the Calcutta and Amer
ican produce supply of maize, and for some
time a small and sharp upward movement
has been going in prices for both round and
flat corn in all positions, thirty shillings three
pence having been paid for mixed American
for November and December shipments. The
spot trade is equally strong, and corn, which
a month ago could be bought for twenty-seven
shillings, is now easily salable for thirty
shillings. Ex-granary barley is steady, but
less active than maize, and an upward tend
ency is observable in prices. The number
of arrived cargoes of wheat at the ports of call
is steadily increasing. During the past week,
with a moderate demand, prices have receded
six pence per quarter in all positions, liar
ley remains steady.

Pursuant to announcement, there was a
large meeting of ex-Confederate soldiers yes
terday afternoon in -the Planters insurance
building, Madison street, to take action upon
the death cf Lieutenant-General N. B. For
rest, the great soldier. The attendance was
composed of prominent citizens, men who
had either been with General Forrest in the
army, or else had fought for the same cause.
A feeling of sorrow characterized the
meeting, the proceedings of which evi
denced the sense of loss which per
vades this community because of the
death of the great soldier. Among the
prominent ex-Confederates present were Hon.
Jacob Thompson, General W. Y. C. Humes,
General Gideon J. Pillow, Colonel M. C.
Gallaway, of the Appeal, Colonel R. F. Loo

was called to order by Major Minor Meri
wether, who moved that General Gideon J.
Pillow be elected chairman and Major G. V.
Rambaut secretary. The motion was adopted.
THE DEAD CHIEFTAIN.
General Gideon J. Pillow, upon taking the
chair, made a few remarks, in which he
gracefully spoke of the genius of General
Forrest, and mentioned the fact that he
earned his fame, and was a soldier of unpre
cedented valor and prowess. General Pillow
referred to the brilliant part which General
Forrest took in the battle of Fort Donelson,
and the charge which he made upon the
enemy there. He also spoke of his great
victories and his dauntless courage. No
man, he said, in this or any other country,
with a like small command, ever made such
brilliant charges, and accomplished as much
as General Forrest. He spoke of the time
the enemy, in large and superior force, were
marching upon a small band of Confederates
in an open, beautiful field. General Forrest
seeing the large body of the enemy, said, "I
can run over tnem, but I can't hold them."
"Run over them, Forrest, I'll be at your back
with my command," was the reply of Gen
eral Pillow. General Forrest at once made a
charge, and accomplished what he said he
could, the enemy being run over and routed.
General Pillow's remarks were touching and
eloquent, and were received with unbroken
COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS,
After General Pillow had finished, Colonel
M. C. Gallaway moved the appointment of a
committee to draft resolutions expressing the
object of the meeting and sorrow caused by
the death of General Forrest.
This motion was adopted, and the chair
man appointed as the committee: Colonel M.
C. Gallaway, General W. Y. C. Humes, Judge
T. W. Brown, Major Minor Meriwether and
General A. J. Vaughan. The committee then
retired for consultation.
REMABE8 OP JUDGE HEISKELL.
Judge C. W. Heiskell, of the circuit court,
who was a colonel in the Confederate army,
presented the following resolution:
Besolved, That, through the morning pa
pers, the courts and all public offices, the
schools and all business houses be requested
to suspend business from ten o'clock in the
morning to two o'clock in the afternoon to
day to allow those who desire to attend the
funeral of General N. B. Forrest.
In presenting this resolution, Judge Heis
kell said that he had, out of respect to the
memory of General Forrest, closed his court,
a thing which he had never done tinder simi
lar circumstances except upon the death of
General Robert E. Lee. In this instance he
did it out of respect to the memory of Gen
eral Forrest, the greatest man eviscerated by
the late war. General Forrest he regarded
as the greatest, though, perhaps, he should
say that also ot Lee and Jackson, who were
educated soldiers. Forrest, though not an
educated soldier, accomplished more than
any other man for the means at his com
mand. " Out of my very great respect to
the memory of General Forrest, I took the
responsibility, if such it were, of ordering my
Judge Heiskell's resolution was adopted.
THE MILITARY COMPANIES.
General G. W. Gordon moved that the
military companies be invited to unite in the
Major Hammond offered the following
amendment, which General Gordon accepted
and the meeting adopted:
' Resolved, That the military companies of
the city, the police and fire departments, and
the mayor and city council be invited to par
ticipate in the funeral services in honor of
I. O. O. F.
Colonel R. Dudley Frayser informed the
meeting that General Forrest, who was a
member of Chickasaw Lodge, JNo. 8.1. U. U. r .,
had expressed a desire to be buried by the
members ot the order, lie suggested, there
fore, the propriety of the chairman appoint
ing on the committee members from the or
DISPATCH FROM GENERAL CHALMERS.
The following telegram from General
James A. Chalmers, congressman from the
sixth district of Mississippi, was read:
Washington, D. C October 30, 1 877.
To Major O. V. Rambaut:
Your dispatch has been received, and I add
my tribute to our fallen chief. General For
rest possessed the dash of Murat, the count
ot JNey, ana strategy second to no man. His
name alone was a tower of strength in battle,
and he will live in history as nature s general,
JAMES B. CHALMERS.
REMARKS OF GENERAL HUMES.
General W. T. C. Humes, upon reading
the above telegram -to the meeting, 'said he
would like to make a few remarks, not so
much as to the military man as to the private
life of General Forrest. His feats and his
victories as a military man are known
throughout the land, and are as familiar as
household words. We all knew his courage
and his great military genius, for in these but
one other equaled him, and this was stone
wall Jackson. But like Stonewall Jackson in
war, he had characteristics like him in pri
vate life, characteristics which should be
known, especially by the young men of the
country. These characteristics were self-abnegation
and industry, energy and unflinch
ing courage. He displayed these character
istics as a private citizen, when seeking
absolutely and alone to build up the south,
for which he had fought with such heroi :
valor. But in til the long list of battles,
from Canton and Fort Donelson to Shiloh and
Gainesville, did he exhibit more courage
than he has done for the past eighteen
months? During these eighteen months,
when attacked and sinking beneath disease,
did he display more fortitude and bravery,
patience and endurantie characteristics that
will live as long as the streams run, as long
as the sun shines, and as long as the flowers
bloom above his native Tennessee.
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE.
Colonel M. C. Gallaway, as chairman of
the committee on resolutions, made the fol
lowing report, which the meeting adopted:
Resolved, That we, as Confederate soldiers,
have received, with the deepest sensibility
and the most profound grief, the announce
ment of the death of General N. B. Forrest,
of this city.
Resolmed, That in the death of the distin
guished deceased the community has lost one
of its most eminent and useful citizens, and
the country a pure patriot, who has signified
his readiness to give his transcendent military
genius to the defense and perpetuity of the
Union and the constitution, which he and we
now regard as "oneand indivisible.
Resolved, That we remember with pride
and gratitude his knigtitly person,' his noble
bearing, his brilliant military "career, his
fidelity to his principles, his gallantry and
efficiency as a soldier, and his usefulness as a
citizen, in which he shone alike pre-eminent.
Itesolved, That as a testimony of respect
we will attend in a body the funeral services
of the deceased tomorrow, at eleven o'clock,
and that all Confederate soldiersand citisens
be requested to join ns in paying the last sad
tribute to the memory of our distinguished
mend. , ...
Rtsolctd, That the chairman of this meet
in appoint twelve paU-bearers to take charge
cf the remains of the deceased si his late
residence, thence to the church, and to Elm-
dier, we mourn the loss of a citizen whose
fame is known throughout the civilized world.
that we especially and profoundly sympathize
with the family of the deceased, and hereby
ettend to them our neartteit condolence.
Resolved, That the Chickasaw Guards, the
Bluff City Grays, and the Memphis Artillery
be requested to participate in the services to

' COMMITTEE ON CEREMONIES.
' Major Hammond said that as the time was
short, a general committee would hardly be
able to make the arrangements relating to
the luneral ceremonies. As Colonel M. C.
Gallaway, Major Rambaut and Colonel Taylor
were known to be intimate with General For
rest, and doubtless more familiar with his
wishes than any other persons, it would be
proper and certainly expedient to intrust the
matter of arrangements and ceremonies to
those gentlemen, with authority to appoint
sub-committees if they deem it necessary
These gentlemen would also represent the
military and ex-Confederates, while Colonel
K. Dudley t rayser and Captain black would
in addition represent the Odd-Fellows, they
being members of the same lodge, Chicka
saw, No. 8, to which General Forrest be
longed. He understood that General Forrest
asked to be buried in his uniform, and was so
shrouded. Moth the military and the Odd-
Fellows could patticipate in the honors of the
The resolution was adopted, and the five
gentlemen whose names appear above were
appointed on tne committee,
REMARKS OF JUDGE BROWN.
Judge T. W. Brown made a few remarks
relative to the dead hero. Judge Brown said
the time would come when the name ot uen
era! Forrest would be recorde.l the brightest of
all American military men. He regarded him
superior to any in the past or to any of those
of his cotemporaries whose name would live
in the future. The great deeds and splendid
victories of the unlettered general were
known throughout the civilized world, and
his fame would live forever in the pantheon
of American genius.
At the conclusion of Judge Brown's re
marks, the meeting adjourned.
NOTICE FROM THE MA TOR.
Mayor Flippin makes the following notice
"The city offices will be closed this morning
from ten to twelve o'clock as a mark of re

Lieutenant Cowan, of Nashville, yesterday
telegraphed here that a part ot Oeneral i or

City Grays, Chickasaw Guards and Memphis
Light Guards will participate in the luneral
