Commercial, an able and conscientious Re
publican paper, says no honest man, who

Into bis cabinet. That is also our position.
Republicans who believe Hayes w as fairly

crat who believes Hayes is a fraudulent
president, stultifles himself when he en
doisi s Hayes or sanctions Key's course.

To trie lytttors of the Herald and Mail: !
Seeing y ou have at liL bponon, we feel
proud. Vie have wondered aud been risked
whv vo.t iift.'er wer? ill favor of tho railroad
froiu Columbia via Mt. Pleasant, Henry vilie
nd Corinth to New Orleans, and also to
Memphis. We always believed it an error
in the head or want of faitii in the Inlegrilv
of our people. All we ask is tlie loan of the
means to buii-l me radioad, un interest.
Ve have the capital, or ore, aud untold
millions besides, and only lack tho mint or
rai'road, to moid It. You kuow U aud oth
ers know it, but are afraid to lend us the
money, for which we will give a mortgage
on lhe railroad, and millions of ore, timber
land, etc., to secure them. Wedo not waut
i hem to build the railroad. yo waul omy
the meaus, on good paying interest, aud we
will becure them. We want to build the
Nashville and Corinth and Memphis and
Kuoxville Railroad, in partnership, from
Columbia to the west side of the Tennessee
River, crossing the rivet- ot the most practi
cal point for both railroads, so as to maiie a
partuerbiilp orluge, and wo aiso want lo be
partners with the Duck River Valley Kail
loadto Mt. Pleasant, or as far as it runs oar
ir.e. We waut DO oarUiergCJ SUwkni-
x.ose named, unless it is witu 'a
ir. e good will and for a forward move no
more delay. We have lost twenty-five years
and tweuty-flve millions of dollars that
would now be iu our grasp, whloh would
have been drawn out of our beds of ore,
titn ber. etc., and we believe it is wrong to
delay longer. So you will see the proprie
lousof the foregoing raiiroads, and there
should be meetings called iu every town
aud village on or near these railroads, Irom
Nashville to Memphis snd from Corinth to
New Orleans, by the 10th of May, next, at
lhe futheriuost, so as togive them the lead,
:ts they have commenced; but otherwise we
w ill pledge our land, timber, the railroad
and ail of its fixtures to the man, men,
coriRirotioii or company that will furnish
us with the money to build said railroad
or railroads. Ihere is only a gap ol sixty
.'our miles, lrom Mt. Piea-sant to Corinth, to
build, linking New Orleans with New York
diagonally, across the country linking the
oottou and sugar patch to the manufactory,
and crossing all raiiroads running north and
s'outh, east uud west. We will wait for
further light ashoit time. If the Northern
capitalists ever see this gap of sixty-fonr
miles, they will soon show us that it is six
ty millions of dollars; or in other words eaz
everlasting fortune, besides an eternal in
