cuiitiea above $70 per share, tbe hih
eet point touched sines the summer of
1863, before the collapse in Denver
and Northern rclfic." Af ter showing
th. artnal advance in the earntnzi of
eovsial Brjuthem railroads, the Tribune 1
adds: "There Biorfs show that tnere
has been real improvement in Sou hern
railroad tn ID j, as in Southern indus
try generally, and great .r tLan ia tbe
Northwestern and EssUrn section, but
less than in tho Northern Central
States." The Si. Louis Iron Age jolcs
in tbe cheerful strain, and dtclarts
"that the magnificent industrial pros
pects of the Bouth are probably es
active In attracting capital to her rail
ways a to her coal aud iron fields."
The New Orleans Picayunt men
ions a statement of importance,
should it prove correct, "that
awhereas at this time last year only
60 per cent, of the world's ocean
tonnage wis in commission, now 8)
per cent, of it is at work." Money Is
fairly ea y, and the financial condi
tion Is strong. Tbe Bank of England
is increasing its itock of gold, and will
'probably lower lis 4 per cent, rate,
which bas been .maintained to check
the flow of gold to this country, and
therefore, titer will be no scarcity of
that metal, especially if tbe stocks of
oar beet railroads are in Increasing de
mand in London, tbe rate there going
beyond the Wall street quotations
Silver has undergone some fluctuations
-this week. We quoted it a week sgo
at 46 penes an cuoce; on Wednesday
the Net Tork Bulletin quoted it at
47 1-14, but on Saturday at 40
pence. At tbe Utter rate the silver
In oar dollar Is worth 79.79 cents.
The clearings ol ths laat week show a
decline on the total reported of 6 per
cent, bnt excluding New York there
was an inorease of 8 9 per cent, as crjjt
pared with the previous year. The
decrease ia owing to less actjlty In
Wall street than there wai aear ago,
and baaki are not extending loans on
, "fancy" stocks. Of th thirty cities
reporting, eight shw a decrease as
against laat year. Of these, only two
,. places are materially above 10 per
cent, deerfS3 they are New Orleans,
which deorfstid 22.4 per cent, and
Lowell, jbch wai 53.9 per cent, be
low thy corresponding week lest year.
lmphii was 18 9 per cent, ahead of

ll In already been announced
through the columns of ths Appeal
that the lion. J. A. Mansm, ot Ilarde
man cotnty, Is an aspirant for tbe po
sition ot Superintendent of the Public
Schools of Tennessee. The law re
quires a nomination by the Governor
aud a continuation by the Senate. If
the Governor-elect were to search
the State from Carter to Shelby be
could not find a man belter quail
fled lor the position than Mr,
Manson. lis Is a ripe scholar and a
thorough teacher and has large expe
rience, as he has given bis active life
and matured powers to the duties
of a practical instructor, lie hss
a broad and vigorous intel
lect, and as Superintendent wonld
manage tbe publio schools on
strict business principles. In West
Tonnecsee tbo universal teeing Is
tbat the highest seivice which
"TallaFoota" Taylor can render ths
estate ia to send to the Senate for con
firmation the name ot J. A. Mansou
as Superintendent tf the public
suhoo's. The new Governor will
need no tastimoi la's as to bis integ
rity, for he is kcown ss a conspicuous
member of the Lealslsture snd 8peak
r of the House ct Representatives, in
which position be developed adminis
trative abilities and talents of the

he hai no taste for glory, no adm!ra
tlon for the beautiful and the sublime
when they thus meet together
and so frantically and lovingly kiss
each other. That is a poem which
will, "upset tbs category aud overturn
the predicament." Moore's moss bas
betrayed him, for the perfidious god
dees has palmed on him the most dia
bolical prose for genuine poetry. The
Memphis bard seems to think tbat
poetry means a correspondence of
sounds In the terminsting of words or
syllable, and he is not even
rbymeeter, and as to Ideality, be bss
none, while lit ihytbm J gi along
about es smoothly as an old faibioned
grist mill with an occasional cog miss

uaitioa oi mo nineteenth cen

measure and his meter. At some
deaf deacon s'mggling vainly with the
hymn comes L'g jirg on a verse behind
the choir snd, standing up alone, un
daunted, howls out the closing lines
after ths organ has cased and the
congregation been dismissed, so do
the long lines of our poet laureate
come hobbling up after the shoit lines
have ate their supper and gone to bed.
A celebrated painter kept ia the moat
oonsplouous place in his gallery the
meanest daub ot all his Immense col
lectlOn to remind him ot the goodness-
of his Creator In permitting a human
being to live long enough to paint
such a hideous picture. It tbe
Memphis bard la permitted to
live after torturing an inno
cent and unoffending community
with loch excruciating dog
gerel as the above ths world will have
still mors causa (o be reminded of th
forbearance and long suffering of the
good Lord, who in His mercy spares
the moneter whoss poetry has brought
sorrow and anguish upon dsfenseless
men, women and children. When
tbe Memphis Bard ceased to torture
the community with his loose, lumi
nous and Insurious letters for tbe
public press, and commenoed wooing
the muses, a pitlent and sfllicted pub
lio rejoiced as it felt that any change
would be a relief. Bat now that it
his seen a specimen of the Bard's po
etry be ia begged and implored to re
turn to prose sgiln, ss the reading
publis had rather be tortured with
this scribbler's letters than murdered
with his poetical strlchynins. Mem

now that he is wrestling with
the muses it is hoped
he will not permit tho frosts ot crit

of the poet's heart are too sensitive,
tender snd delicate for the rugged
storms oi life.. Butgenlns and per

"It tbere is any one subject of over
shadowing and paramount interest to
civilised communities, any subject tbat
attains an ever neightemng interest in
keeping wnn tne everrenaiog civil
zauon of man, it is that of hnman
health. With all intelligent races the
primary Instinct of a well man is the
continuation of his exis'ecce by tbe
faithful maintenance of a normal
physical condition. With those wbo
are sick, with these whose physical
organism nai undergone derangement,
the consideration sovereign to all
others is tbat of restoration to tbe
normal condition. A merchant sink
ing with consumption, the editor
prostrated with nervous exhaustion,
tne millionaire crippled witn rbeuma
tism, the poor man bemonstered with
deformity all feel a deeper interest
in the matter of restoration to the
health of nature than in their
traffic, their poiit cal theories, their
income, or their daily duties. And
when a physician, by authentic, in'
disputable proof ef some sovereign
faculty ol treatment, some qualiflca
tion for curing tbe whole ordinary
range ot chronic human direaws with
an almost unerring swiep that raises

The New York Sportsman says
Memphis sends ns a sharp telegram
which we append herewith, concern'
ing tbe dates assigned to tbat asoci
tion in oar racing fixtures. The tele
gram reads as follows :
M f arsis, Tins., Horember SS, 1886.
Idltor Sportsman :

This reopens tbe trouble which we.
in common with the entire racing
community, had thought satisfactorily
settled, indeed, we could not imag
ine why Memphis had withdrawn
from ths consress, but perhaps ths
toregoing telegram explains tbe rea'
son. Tne most desirable thing tbat
cm be ob'ained by racing institution
tbe world over is harmony. It ap

We give tbe dates in our fixtures as
