The Railroad meeting iu this city,
last Saturday, 'appointed a commit
tee of gentlemen to make applica
tion to the Chancellor of this district
for a charter for .said road. Good
feeling and enthusiasm prevailed
throughout the meeting. This ap
plication will be made soon, and
when a charter is obtained we hope
the citizens of the Denmark country
and of Jackson will lock arms and
shields, and go vigorously to work
ro complete the enterprise.
If our friends at Denmark will
look at this matter, in the light of
ict and figure, they cannot fail
to see that Jackson is the point they
should first strike tor, as the most
Important for tbeir Interest. When
here, with their produce, they
have a home market equal to Mem
phis, for the sale of their cotton.
With the facilities for shipping
South, East and North, our cotton
merchants can and will pay Mem
Whilst we have never opposed the
building of a road from Denmark to
any point, we are confident that
Jackson is the . point -our friends
over the rifer should aim Vor. We
approve of the road trout JaVkson to
Brownsville, with the feature"bf no
dineriminatio, in freight or passage
either war. The business men of
Jacksr-ii are not envious of other ci
ties, and do not fear fair competi
- A few of the citizens in and about
Denmark w tre too hasty in coming
to the conclusion that Jacksou wia
not disposed toco-operate with them
In railroad enterprises. What are
the facts connected with the unjnst
prejudice attempted to be gotten up
between Denmark and Jackson, and
in the heat of the moment caused
some clever gentlemen to turn their
backs upon this city? Why, at the
same time we suggested the build
ing of a narrow gauge road to Lex
ington, we also advocated the build
ing of the same kind of a road to
Somerville via Denmark. The
friends of the enterprise promptly
responded from Henderson, whilst
there, was no favorable response
from cur friends over the river, but
rather- opposition to the narrow
gauge project hence the further
advance of the road to Lexington
Now, is there a liberal minded gen
tlcman in Denmark who can charge
Jackson, or the editors of this pa
per with a disposition to ignore the
claims of Denmark to railroad facil
ities? No, gentlemen, there never
was any foundation for such a feel
ing on the part of any citizen of
Denmark. The truth is, you failed
to get up steam at the right time
and to move in the right direction
Now be generous and don't blame
ua with your tardiness. We will
show you that we are in earnest and
will meet you like brothers of one
of the most glorious counties in the
State. When the proper time comes
yon will see that Jackson will d)
her full share in aiding to build
road to Denmark see to it that you
do yours. When the road ia at
Denmark yon can rest upon your
oars, for it brings about the absolute
necessity of a road from Memphis,
aud probably one from Brownsville,
without asking you to take stock.
If you look at this matter calmly
you cannot fail to see that we have
given you good common sense ad
vice, and that we have never been
wrong on this question, the comma
nlcatious in the Brownsville papers
to the eontrary notwithstanding.
Come, "all aboard for the Denmark
Jackiaa aa a Railroad rwai.
' itore man twenty years ago we
predicted, through the columns of
this paper, that Jackson was destin
ed to become the great focus of Raii
roadB in West Tennessee. This in
evitable result would have been ac
complished years since, but for the
devastations of civil war. It will
be recollected, by the old citizens of
this county, that the first Railtoad
enterprise for this section was moot
ed through our paper. When the
Memphis and Charleston road was
projected, and a branch extended to
Somerville, we advocated, with zeal,
the e i tension of the road from Som
erville, via Denmark, to Jackson.
Our Representative in the Legisla
ture used his whole influence to get
the charter extended to this place,
but the members from Shelby op-
posecLand defeated the movement.
Thus foiled in our first effort for a
Railroad to this city, we next took
hold of the project of a road from
Mobile to the Ohio river, and wrote
the first article that ever appeared
in print, from West Tennessee, ad
vocating the building of the Mobile
and Ohio Railroad.
The building of the Mobile and
Ohio road brought about the neces
sity of the Mississippi Central roa?.
and the completion of these tv. v
roads will bring about the necessity
of other roads to tap them at this
central point in this fertilo peninsu
lar of West Tennessee.
Having got thus far in the fulfill
ment of our prediction we can now
seo the "conclusion of tho whole
matter." The road from Jackson to
Lexington will certainly be made,
with a strong probability of an ex
tension to Knoxville. The road
from Jackson (12 miles) to Denmark
is a fixed fact, with almost a certain
ty of an extension to Memphis, and
probably to Brownsville. As soon
as there is a change in the ownership
of the Northwestern rood, the
branch from Huntingdon, passing
through Levinia and Spring Creek
tq Jackson, will be pushed forward
to completion. It will be remem
bered that 10 miles ot this branch
has already been graded and bridg
ed, leaving only 23 miles to reach
Jackson. AfTnough there is not
much said now about this Hunting
don branch road, we look upon its
completion with the fullest confi
dence. Thiss a broad gauge road,
aud cannot be made by individual
enterprise alonsr the line. But. as
soon as oad falls into the hands
of capitaiMts, they will know the
absolute necessity of connecting at
Jackson, and, backed up by the bus
iness men of Nashville, will go for
ward to complete it The extension
of the Mississippi , Central toPadn-
cah has already been decided upon,
and the wealthy lessees of that road
wiU "push things." The comple
tion of all these projected roads,
with those already in successful op
eration, will give to Jackson more
railroads than can be found at any
other location in West Tennessee.
With the prestige and power that
n now has, short sighted, in
deed, wrtwhe her citizens if they do
not go forwawto the accomplish
ment of still greateVimproveuienta.
There is nothing, iu Ov-eftndid
udgment, to prevent Jackson
becomi-ig the great railroad focus of
West Tennessee, and the Atlanta of
the State. ' '
With a devotion that knows no
change, and a zeal that knows no
l abatement, we rtiall continue to give
our bent efforts to the building up of
a great; inland city here, spreading
Us commercial influence in all the
fcWrrouuding country. 'With a rc-
Loxd of devotion and zealous labor
foradison county particularly,
and theurrounding counties gen
erally, reaching" back for a third of a
century, we caiKwcIl afford to pass,
unnoticed, the ungenerous attempts
made to place us in antagonism to
any portion of our county. Let him
who ran show a belter; record cast
the first, stone.
Rallroaa iriectlaa; at Hr l
Our Dcumark aud
friends had a railroad meeting at
Brownsville last Tuesday, to devi-
ways ami means to ouim a narrow
gauge road between these points.
We learn, gene.aily, that there was
a good delegation from Denmark,
aud that the meeting was harmoni
ous, though, except the appointment
of a committee to solicit subscrip
tions, composed of some of the best
citizens of both counties, nothing of
especial interest transpired.
The account given by Col. Baker,
of this city who was present is
not highly complimentary to the
Denmark delegation. We have seen
no official account of the meeting
op to the time of putting our paper
to preos 12 in. Friday. If there
shall appear anything of interest in
the official proceedings, especially
to our frkuds about Denmark, we
will copy it in the -next issue of the
Wkio and Tkibdn, for we are
determined that all sections of our
county shall have a fair heating
through this medium.
The Express car ou the Mobile &
Ohio Railroad, going North on Sat
urday night of last week, was robbed
by three men who got on the train
at Union City, and bought tickets
to Clinton, Kv. The train had
stopped for a moment at some sta
tion, when the three men got out
on the platform, and as the train
started, observing that there was no
one but the messenger in the Express
car, two of them Jumped into the
car and presented pistols to the head
of the messenger, demanded the safo
key, while the third one stood ou
the platform to give signal in cae
of danger. One kept his pistol well
covering the head of the messenger,
while the other went through the
safe. The amount obtained has
been variously stated, but we learn
it did not exceed $2,000. When they
had accomplished their business,
the bell cord was pulled for slacken
ing speed, and the three rascals got
off, aud disappeared iu the woods.

A large and enthusiastic railroad
meeting at Macon, in Fayette county,
is reported Iu the Memphis Appeal
ot Saturday. Maj. Sykes, of Mem
phis, and O. F. Prescott, a prouii
nent citizen of the same city, aud a
director of the Memphis and Raleigh
Narrow Gauge Road, made speeches
on the occasion. A unanimous ex
pression in favor of extending the
Raleigh road to Jackson, was the
result of the meeting. The country
all along the hue of this road is
waked up to the importance of its
immediate construction.' Memphis
and Macon at the other end, seem
willing to do their part, Jackson and
Denmark at this cud have pledged
themselves to do theirs and now
wuai says somerville.' The pros
pect for the early construction of
this great road grows brighter and
brighter. Let tho people of Den
mark. Somerville and Macon keep
the rires burning. Jackson and
Memphis will do all that is expected
of them when the time comes. ,

: Hendersan County.
The opportunity is now offered to
the .citizens of Henderson county
to secure the inestimable advantages
of a cheap, safe and economical
railroad, which we are persuaded
the good sense and self-interest of
her people will induce her to seize
upon without unnecessary delay.
A survey has already been made for
a narrow gauge road from Jackson
to Lexington, which for cheapness
of construction - aud economy of
management, will throw any road
ever before constructed in Tennes
see entirely into the shade.
- As Henderson county now stands,
she is almost wholly isolated from
all railroad connections. . Her soil is
one of the most generous and pro
lific in this generous and prolific
section of the State. Sho makes as
much cotton per acre, as any county
in West Tennessee; but lying re
mote from market, and separated
from railroads by streams and dirt
roads which are absolutely impassa
bleor next to it for a good por
tion of the time when she wishes to
reach market with her products.
she loses as much every year, in
hauliug, in not being able to get to
market and iu loss by depreciation
in quantity aud quality of staple,
and by depreciation of price, as
would pay for building such a road
through from the Madison county
liue to Lexington. We are some
times met with the remark that
Henderson is a poor county, and
"cannot afford" to lay out of the
capital necessary to build the road
through their territory; but when
this remark is made they do not re
flect that, poor as Henderson county
is, she annually loses more, for want
of the facilities which the railroad
would furnish, than the whole cost
of the road would be to them.
Why, the surplus corn of Hender
son county, which has been made by
the two last raius, last week and
thi3 would alone, almost build the
road through the county; and yet
we hear men who pass for intelli
gent citizens, cavilling about the
pitiful tax which it is proposed to
levy upon the county $160,000 and
which is to be paid in ten years. If
the road is built, before these bonds
will fall due, aud have to be paid,
the increased value of the lands of
Henderson county, to say nothing
of the additional articles of produc
tion which will, by this means, find
access to market, will laore than ten
imes over, pay the whole of the
bonds thus issued.
"Hnderson couuty will not bo so
blind tolt4est interests as to re
fuse to vote tile subscription asked
for this road. It would be an insult
to her intelligence to believe it.
Dotavacrallc! Or Radical!

railroad from Jackson to Denmark,
looking to an extension from the
latter place either to Memphis or
Brownsville, as the interest of the
people along the line may determine.
The Chairman then expressed the
views of the Denmark delegation,
as agreed upon at an informal meeU
mg. They were in favor r all rail
roads, especially those that inclnded
Denmark in the route. They were
almost a unit in favor of the narrow
gauge system, and will unite with
the people of Jackson in building a
road of that character, either from
Jackson to Memphis, by way of
Denmark and Somerville, or by way
of Denmark aud Brownsville. The
people of Denmark preferred a di
rect line to Memphis, but as that
appeared far in the future, Denmark
would meet the citizens of Browns
ville at the county line that place
having proposed to build a road
wjthin four and a half miles of Den

I little thought when I penned the
article published on the first page of
jour last issue, on the danger of
using these highly innammaoie
burning fluids, that we would so
soon have so bright an illustration
of the facts set forth. A grand and
awfully sublime spectacle was wit
nessed at the Methodist church on
Thursday evening. The house filled
with flame and flowing out at the
windows, the consequence of the
falling of a chandelier charged with
highly inflammable fluid. It ia sick
ening to the heart to think of what
the consequence would have been
bad there been a congregation in
the church at the time. Who can
realize the horror of a crowd of eon-
fused persons in a house filled with
flame, and many of their garments
blazing with the flaming fluid scat
tered on them? How long will our
citizens tolera.e the use of this dan
gerous fluid, and not enforce the law
that prohibits its sale?

The question of constructing our
Jackson and Tennessee River Road,
is one that presents itself to every
thinking man. ' How can the means
be raised? Henderson county h
wisely submitted the proposition to
the people of the county to vote a
tax of $125,000 to its construction
J , t , ,v
lar proposition to the voters of the
city of Jackson to vote a subscrip
tion of $60,000. These two sub
scriptions, with what should, and
can, be taken in work and material
along the line of the road will build
it at once. Let us have the sub
scription by tho city, and thereby
make certain the construction of
this important work.

Indulge me with this, the last.
Mr. March's statement until called
by Judge Black Lo the door of the
hotel, is, in substance, correct. I do
not pretend to bay that there was
no money furuiehed Cox by some
one; but my guard deny that they
furnished h!n any. Some one of the
State's witnesses from this county
might have given him money; but
they were not under my control; I
had nothing to do with them. They
were witnesses for the Staf, and as
much under : the control'; of Mr.
March as myself. Withoni making
an exposition of profanity, I will
say to Mr. March that the people of
my county sustain me, and if his peo
ple sustain him it is all right - And
without worrying the public and the
readers of your valuable paper,
will say to Mr. March; that the
Courts of the country are open, and
that ho can have a fair and impartial
trial if he desires it. I have nothing
more to say to Mr. March through
the papers, let him go to the Courts
if he wants an investigation.

Decatur Connty Awake?
A communication from an intel
ligent correspondent at Decaturville
under date of the 19th inst, gives
the gratifying intelligence that the
people of Decater county are alive
to the necessity of building the Jack
son and Tennessee River Railroad,
and with a view to getting all the
people of Decatur county together
will give a
Graai Free Barkeea
at Decaturville - on Wednesday,
August 16th, at which some of the
most practical and sensible railroad
men in the State, will address the
people, setting forth the great, tho
incalculable advantages of having a
railroad running through their
county, connecting at Jackson with
the finest system of railroads in the
State, and with a prospective rail
road outlet to the East, which will
give her people a choice of markets
Which they can never enjoy with
out such connection as we propose
With a view to a full aud fair dis
cussion of the advantages of the
proposed road, they have invited
Hon. Milton Brown, General A. W.
Campbell, Maj. It B. Hurt, and
other practical and sensible bus-
ines men to addres thcta on the oc
casion. Judge Milton Brown had
much practical experience in build
ing broad gauge railroads having
in fact built the Mississippi Central
from Jackson to the Mississippi
State line, aud the Mobile aud Ohio
Railroad through from Mobile to
Columbus, Ky., and is therefore
able to talk to the people intelligent
ly upon the subject Geu. A. W.
Campbell, though not a practical
railroad man, - is recognizee? as one
of the most eloqueueut, logical and
convincing men of this section, and
having rjad and thought much on
the subjoct, will be able to talk ef
fectively to the people.
Our correspondent says Decatur
county is ready to foot her full
proportion of the cost of a survey of
the route from Jackson to the Ten
nessee River, and asks if Henderson
county will bear her portion of the
burden to make the survey across
her territory? He says Decatur
county is not very wordy, but when
she speaks she means a good deal.
The hospitable people of Decatur
throw wide open doors, and invite
the citizens of Henderson and Mad
ison to join them at Decaturville on
the 16th of August, rnd let thier
united counsels devise the ways and
means to build the road which is to
be of such vast benefit to Jackson,
Lexington and to all the- interme
Madison will be represented - and
well represented on the occasion.
The farmers of Madison county
are airousing themselves to the im
portance and dignity of their voca
tion. A few days ago they raised
about four thousand dollars towards
a fund for the reorganization of the
Fair Association of the county, and
have called a meeting at Jackson, on
the 5th of August, which will be a
festival in the true sense of the term

tion, and speaking by Hon. Em.

The Virginia Air Lino.
The daily shipments of merchan
dize over the Virginia Air Line
from Norfolk to Nashville amounts
to about six carloads, which con
sidered a very good business for the
season. A very large quantity of
sugar has been shipped here over this
line during the past week, to our
wholesale grocery merchants, and
there is every reason to believe that
the business during the Fall and
Winter will be very materially in
creased as compared with last year.
At Norfolk the line connects with
steamers running to all the Eastern
ports and" ismaring itself a very
formidable competitor with north

Yesterday morning, between three
and four o'clock, a heavy southward
bound freight train on the Louis
ville, Memphis and Nashville liaiL
road, while going at full speed be
tween Rocky Hill and Glasgow
Junction,' struck a broken or defec
tive rail and was raised from the
track, eight of the cars rolling
down an embankment of twenty
feet or more, ou the west side of the
road, and dashing them to pieces.
The freight consisting in most part
of whisky, pore, bacon, etc, waa
scattered in confused Leaps and is
almost a total loss. In spots the
whisky lay in pools of a foot in
depth. One man, a brakesman, met
instant death, being smashed to a
jelly under one of the cars, where
the body was held so firmly that It
was necessary to use an ax in its ex
trication. It was a sickening spec
tacle, from wnich the stoutest
hearted turned in horror. The name
of the victim was John Bolen. He
came recently from Ohio, where, it
is said, he leave a family. It Is said
that only two or three days ago he
signed a paper, vhich the company
exacts from all ot tbeir employees,
relieving the road of all pecuniary
or other responsibility in the event
of injury or death while engaged at
their posts, no matter how hazard
ous the duty. The rails and ties
were torn up for a considerable dis
tance and caused a delay of several
hours to the express trains north
and south. The engine and several
cars passed over safely, while several
cars in the rear escaped damage by
becoming detached from the shock
of the accident. The bulk of the
freight was tor New Orleans and
Mobile, but considerable we for
Memphis, Nashville, Macon, Jack
son, etc It lies in a mixed and hope
less condition on and under the em
bankment. Yesterday afternoon a
force of laborers was employed in
removing it and other debris of the
wreck, a.well as in repairing the
track. No other casualties than the
one reported occurred. Banner.
He whothinks better of his neigh
bors than they deserve, cannot be a
bad man, for the standard by which
his judgment is formed is the good
ness of his own heart. It is the base
only who believe all men base, or in
other words, like themselves. Few,
however, are all evil. Even Nero
did a good turn to somebody for
when Rome was rejoicing over his
death, some loving hand covered his
grave with flowers.
