Twenty-five years ago a hostile army
- swooped down npon tbe S mth. E
ry Boathc rn BUts was invaded. The
enemy came with fiie and a word and
all the implements of war, and rain
and devastation followed the tratk of
the Invading foe. The belligerents
were in earnest and the world ws
itartled and appalled t the m'ghty
drama enected between the Noith
and Boatb. No cation bad ever been
to im presst d with psace, 10 little fit
ted for war. In foreign lands there
are perpetual' standing armies; the
yeans; men are in the gariiaons or out
npon the sea behind tne guns of tbe
battle ships. Oars were a people
who had never eeen 5000 soldiera in
array. Butrmiei sprung np in both
lections as rapidly as the crop of
armed men which grew from the ser
pent's teeth s owed by Cadmas, , ' Tb e
old and yoang men of the country took
their places iu battle and made their
breasts a tiring wall of defense. Ter
rible was tbe conflict. There wis no
halting in the mighty tragedy until it
was finished. There was a deep de
sign through it all and a mighty work
to be accomplished. The design
was that of Providence destiny, or
call it what you may to nbolinh
slavery, tbe exlstenoe of which
was a perpetnal mecaos to the peace,
perpetuity and prosperity of the
Union. B'avery was txtermlnated,
and, derpitethe strong passions en
gendered, the lesson is daily sinking
deeper iuto the hearts of tbe people.
When the triumphant invading arm
ies folded their tents and quiet'y stole
away the people of the South breathed
freer and deeper, and flittered them
selves into the belief that they would
never be invaded attain. But start
not, dear reader, when wa tell you
that another army la marching down
moon the South. But this time it
somes not with Are and sword, but
with money, enterprise and every
thing that is necessary to help tha
Southern people in making (he Bouth
tbe meet prosperous section of the
.Union. Every Bouthern Bute has
been already invaded by an advance
guard, but tbe Ioman-llarper scouts,
who are now making a careful ieoon
noine.net?, preagea the coming ol tbe
mighty bos s that shall invade and
overrun the South. Let 'era come;
we will . not "welcome them with
bloody bands to hospitable graves,"
not with the grape that greeted
them on so mauy battle fields
in the sad long ago; but
the grape which make tbe wine and
tbe ban q net, or something to that ef
fect, as was said by B, B. Prentiss.
And what makes this new Invasion of
the South more acceptable and slgnifl
, cant is the fact tha it has not been
inspired by any organic jd efljrt to
' make known our resourcer-or to in
dues capital and emigration. The
people of the North are a shrewd, cal
culating, Intelligent reading poople
and they have the ragacity to see that
tbe South has the greatest natural ad
vantages for manufacturing of any sec
tion ol the Union and muBt necessarily
grow in that direction. They also see
that tbe South is tbe best wooded por
tion, of the Union, snd perhaps un
,' surpassed by any couutry in the world.
Tbe invading army know better than
our own people tbat all metals and
minerals are found in the South in
prodigal profusion, and that tbe water
power is snlTioient to turn all the ma
chinery of the world. Tbey are a'so
familiar with the fact that ths in
creased value of the crops of ths
twelve Southern States in 1834-85 was
$132,772,378. or 22 per cent. Ths
fruit and garden truck crops have in
created from $10,761,699 to $23,871,.
000, while tbe value of stock in the
Southern States, including the im
mense herds of crt:le in Texas, has
'Sprung from $32(1,378,414 to $573,704,'
762, or 09 per cent. The grand invad
ing army moving down npon tbe
Sooth ses from the statistics of the
couutry tbat of ths to'al arable land
in the United States, 318,180,000 acres,
. 30 ptr cent, or nearly two- fifth a, lis in
tbe Southern States; snd to this will
soon bs added, by the redemption of
r ewamp land In Florida, Louisiana and
Mis ifgippi, by tbe construction of
leveis aloDg the Mississippi and other
stream", and by ths improvement of
wa-te and barren lands, tome 42,000,'
000 acres more. OI this immense
amount only 6,C79,C00,or slightly over
19 per cent., is ocenpi 'd for farms,
gisa'ng and similar purposes. Tbe

r ARMEB I ABED TARIFF.
When the farmers ot the United
States become fa'ly aroused to tie In
jury done to their interests by the in
justice rf the present blg't tariff, the
t'ay of reform Is nra. That they are
beginning to d scover that for them to
pay tribute an the salt, toolr, ma
chinery, cotton ties, and many other
materials tbey use; tbat to contiibuto
to other people's fortune s and build
np millionaires Is a losing bu&iuefs for
tbem is evident, and with that dircov
ery the dsy of round tariff reform is
not far off. Tbe Dairymen's National
Convention that met last week in Chi
caj.0, a most important and influential
body, gave proof tbat the mind of the
agricultural population is beginning to
comprthsnd how their own interests
and the welfirs of ths country are
damsged by the oparst'on of the tariff
as it stands today. Tbe president of
tbe convention gave voles to the
aroused convictions of ths farmers by
saying: "One very serious biadraoc
to our prosperity is ths fact that our
producing ).ower has been greater
tban our consuming power." The
remedy, of course, ii such a reform of
the tariff as will permit the people of
the United States to enter the foreign
market on terms as favorable as citi
sns of other prosperous nations do.
A PBOPONITIOBI raOM ClIADA
The fisheries disputo with Oansdi
has been lit le heard of lately, but it
is by no means done with. An Ameii
can boat was seltBd last week. It had
reached ths mouth of the harbor, and
there sold (o romebody an old trawl it
did not use. ' This wai unlicensed sell
ins in port, and the legal penalty for
tbe offense is $400. The Ganadian
people desire to renew tbe treaty tbat
bas lately expired, but the United
States fishermen object. The Canadi
an Government, satisfied that the ex
pense of 2,0f 0,000 already incurred
for the support of cruisers acd other
aids to suppress lllegal.fisbing cannot
be continued, has prepared an entire
new plan for oar government's con
sideration. It is to appoint two Ameri
cans, two Canadians and a foreigner
as a commission to meat in Washing
ton. Having fully discutsed ar.d be
come acquainted with the subject as
presented by both nations, ths
commisoion rhall decide what sum,
if anything, the United States Govern
ment shall pay to Canada for tbe
use of her fishing groaoda. In fact
tbe waters of Ne wfoundland, Canada
and tbe United States (excepting
Alatka) to be free, as under tbe treaty
of 1854. The award haviug been
made to be final and binding between
the high contracting parties. Theae
fish ng grounds dlrputes have lasted
long enough, they are expensive to
both peoples, and there is an element
of national danger in tbe quarrels, and
if a reasonable agreement can bs
formed on tbe Canada proposition, it
will be well to accept it.

he desired to Bay that the Detroit
club had received assurances from the
other league clubs that all the con

A PUBLIC LIBrlAKY WANTED.
Memphis 91 net Bs Believed From a
To tha Editori of ths Appeal:
As one of tbe people, I would like
to know wbat is being done toward
tbe Nish Library. I d i hope our peo
ple will rot let the opportunity peas
of obtaining a good and subbtantial
library for the young men of our city.
We cMm to be a city of 75,000 people
and still rapidly increasing, and we
muit contest ti our ehamnthat we ars
behind Nashville, Kooxville aud Chat
tanooga iu intelligence and public
spiiit and enterprise. I understand
that each of the above cities have a.
very respectable public library, where
acy tit un for a very small sum can
find any book they desire, or requisite
to improve their mind or increase,
their s ore of knowledge, while you
cannot go to a town of 10,000 inhabi
tants in Ohio, Illiuolscr Pennsylvania
but you will find a good and substan
tia library. A fa yearj ago the
writt-r tiok a trip West,
through Llino'e, I iwa, Wiscon
sin, and s'op'-ed for a shoit
time in Qiincy, Dubuque, La Crosse
and Si. Paul, iu each ol which Ifjund
large, fine looking school houces, and
a building uied aud owned by the ""ity
for a public library. The next season
I went t Kansas and Colorado, end
in several of the towns in Kaasas I
found fine brick school houses and
public libraries. 'Whenbaine shown
around the c'ty of Dinver, I saw a
mrgnificeut building at some distance
fiom where' we then stood. Judge of
my surpriee when he informed me
it wascna of tbe public school build
ings, aod tbat very nent, tas'y build
ing across theareet fiomit isonrpub
lie library, which was built and filled
by our own citizens. How long shall
it be said Memphis has no
public library? No place where
her youcg men can go and
spenu au evening pieawntly and
profitably. Jilessr-. lviitois, the
public prcBi is the manuiectury
of pu'eliu sentiments and moral when
they are located. Will you not ogi
tate thia eubject until you tiring our
peplo to 86 and feel the neceseity of
moving arni acting iu this matter; ell
oar people rqu're is to show them
their duty acd po'nr. out the way, and,
my word tor it, it wilt not ha long be
fore we will have a building and li
brary we will all f -tl ptoud of. Hop
ing you will give y.:ur invaluab'e aid
to this pr, jec: I have it in your hands.
