MEMPHIS Q' n AILT SB APPEAL TUE S DAY, DECKMUEW 21. 18ft.

THE BDRIIIM BfTTJATIOM. '
Oar published Eastern correspond.
mm has shown that the satisfactory
condition of trade generally atill contin
ues. In one or tw3 manufactures work
' is carried on as indnatrlonsly that fear
' of overplus is felt, itb th couae
qnent check to prices." The Clearing
IIoue returns, gien In another coN
nmn, show that the figures re mo out
ing more acd more, as compared with
thor e of year ago. The total clear
ing shows a gain of 21 per cent over
the ecrreepnndii;g week a year ago;
leaving out New York, the gain was
17.8 per cent In the New York stock
market there was a nernl panic, which,
it is charged, was tba result of a de
liberate conspiracy. The worst
part cf the charge is that snine
of the first banks in New
York were concerned in it Tin Bulle
tin, a paper, that would not brings
falau accusation, saya: "It is a (act
that tl.o raid wsssyBteraa'lcally under
taken by certain cf the moat eminent
domestic banking boures, who would
indignantly repudiate an inaiuua'ion
that they cou'd ever sloop to touch
stock epecnlaiinna? Such a reikltsa
prostitution of the money of depositors
to the piirpcsos of speculation by
bankir g bouses ot the very highest
repute is something that these who
introst them with the custody and
use of their funds would net have
thought possible." Iuti-rcst was run
np to extortionate fig men, but govern
ment is making advance payments on
bonds, and gold has been arriving
freely, so that rates are traveling to
ward thoir normal condition. The New
York Jndioaiar of Friday said there was
about $0,000,000 of goM then on its
way to this side, ar d it waa estimated
that on $100,000 there was $1500 profit
on the importation, tiui h a loea of gold
Stirred up the Bank of England, and it
pnt up its rate to 6 per cent. Hi! ver we
quoted a week ago. at 40 ; it rote to
46), but ntxt day fell to 4(j pence an
ounce, at which rate it remains, mak
ing the silver in our dollar worth 78.415
seats. The Wall Street flurry played
havoc with some cf tho Southern secu
rities as well as others, and the New
York Invetligator saya : "We repeatedly
warned our roadurs against buying the
Southern fancies when they were be
iff rent up like skyrockets, regardless
(lvalue, to the neglect ot the good
f ,. r.s, and we pointed out not only
the dangvr of touching them, but the
damage they were doing the rest of
the market. The results have verified
oar predictions." The JnvetUgattr
has bulled this class stocks;
it said at the opening of
the week: "Those who sold Ten nes
, see Coal bolow par will wish they had
kept it when they see it at 150, where
it will be before March 1st." On
Friday it had the following : "One of
. the ridiculous features of the scare on
Wednesday was parties rushing
, around town trying to find a par
' chaser for Tennessee Goal and Iron
bonds. If they had called on us we
r would have found a market for them
quick enough. For their information
we would state that the Tennessee
Coal, Iron and Railroad Company is

; When we look back upon the stand

fore the war and at the prosent time
we see that therovo'ntlon that has oo-

ehowa that (herd is a vt amount of
capacity In that race bsyond anything
they were credited with a quarter of a
century ago. Naro schools are well
attended, and the young folk learn
with satisfactory celerity. Very many
of the co ore d agriculturists are carry

making money. Only rail to mind

Watchman of Saturday says: "The
first Jannary issue of this paper will
contain th enterprises of the colored
people of this city, their conditlona,
relations in life, showing what progress
thsy have made in so short a time."
Such an announouinent as this is
the very sounding of the tocln
that rings out ''the old and rings
in the now. lhe same colored organ
while complaining that nnfalrnei-s was
shown them at the p dicemen's ball,
exclaim: "We have oftun repeated
in our papr tout ws have the beat set
cf while people in our city that live in
the world, and we will atick to what
we h ive s.iid, tor it is t io true to evade
theawe'ti'in." We are glad to see the
Watchman appreciates thia fact, which
has pri served Memphis from disturb
ances and hear barninns that have
existed e sewhere. The relation of
the two raws lu Memphis are and
have been kind and cordial, and the
mutual rtspect for each other's rights
and regard for each other's welfare In

AMPLE Aft D PAIR TAXATION
, As the time approaches when the
' TenneexeM Legislature meets, a more
gancral and stronger expression is
given to tho conviction that that t ody
mns'. make ample pruvitlon that the
funds of the State shall be (qui to
the upends of the S'kte. Thia is to
be done, not merely by ii creatlng tax
ation but. by providing lor its more
easy and cerain to'.lei-tion and more
acenrate ar d just apses merit. The
Jackson Tribune-saya: "Wealth In the
cities of Tenneppee hue en ut.jutt way
' of secretii g itcelf from tbe tax astes-
aor, ana bene the State does not re
ceive tbe revenues rightfully dae to it
Tbe a fsament - plan is radically
wrong, and operates wholly in favor of
the wealthy claesff. The poorfarmera
have nothing upon which taxea
can he levied but what is in
sight of the aecessor. It Is certain
that thousands of the wealthy clasa
in the cities and towns do not ex
pose tbe real value of their means for
t nation." The duty devolving npon
tbe Legislature is not only to provide
a sufficient income to the State, but to
have it allotted npon a jutt basis. Tbe
property that the Btate protects and
defends ought to pay, at the very least,
in equal proportion to what is con
tributed by tboee who bave but little
of it It is well that our legislators
should understand that the popular
opinion Is, that the larger portion of
the faces is now paid by those who
hav the smaller portion cf wealth.

Eight dtrperata rounds were fought.
There were several knock downs and
blood was freely itajrn on both aides.
The faces of both men were terribly cut
and dhnVured, and b tlx had to be car

the police got wind of the affair, aid
on three occasions dnrlr-gthe evening,
when prepa a ioDS had beju com

tion, I. T., gives an account of tbe
death thers on the 5th instant of Mrs.
Huiduua Warren, perhaps the oliliat
pertei in the United HUtes, if not the
world. She was bnru in the old town
of Ht Arguatlue, Fla , in 1750, fifteen
years before the Amaricins oonceived
the idea of national independence.
She was born a slave and waa the
property ot Spanish masters nntil
181$, when she with other Spanish
slaves fl -.d frona tbe town of Pensaoola
when it waa taken by (Jen. Jackson.
She lived in the Seminole country
trom then until the second treaty of
peace with the Seminoles, when she
was regarded as their common prop
erty, and was removed with them to
the Indian Territory. She leaves one
daughter living, who resides in Aus
tin, Tex., and is in her V7tb year. She
leaves many grandchildren here, some
of theiu neatly 70 years of aga.

urg upon Congress th pa sure of a bill
giving the Nation a ritht to tax the railroad

they do in the States, and to compel these
road, to oease disorin inat oni in freight and

The delegation is also instructed to get an
act ol Congress, if possible, to test before tha
proper courts whether or not the eminent
doui ii n that oan b applied to the lands of
the Indian Territory, or in other words,
whether the Indians' land! of this territory
ean b taken by Congress and given to pri

on. To iheroke Council ha changed
tha tim of allowing stock to be driven in
the oountry, nd extended it one month,
from April to Mar 1. This will be of Interest
to stock men throughout tha oountry. An
other law allows persons to ship lumber and
timber out of the Nation, provided they pay
a royalty on tha game as fixed by law.
