OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COUNTY.

, The efforts of tho Hoosicr war secretary
to interest the West in the U. S. navy, and
the failure that attended those efforts," are
exciting very general ridicule. The T.-J.
of St. Louis refers to the matter as follows :
The Wachusctt is mustering its cadets at
New Orleans. This is what we would call
"interesting the West in the navy," with a
vengance. The mission of the Wachusttt
has proved an utter failure. It sailed up
the Mississippi to "interest the West"' and
then ignominiously drifted back down
stream and did tor another section of coun
try what it loudly professsd it would do for
this section.' Tbe whole expedition has
petered and fizzled out insloriously.
The Deniocratic-WorkiDgmanV party of
California has taken a new departure, and
has forbidden tho payment of assessments
by candidates, the penalty for non-compliance,
being the abandonment of the guilty
candidate. This, wo think, is carrying the
civil service reform a little too far. The
candidate should not be subject to black
mail, or burdensomo levies; but he should
bo compelled to pay a reasonable share of
the expenses of his canvass. The candidate
who, by the efforts of friends is elevated to
an office worth its thousands a year, should
not impose the expense as well as the labor
upon his friends; but should bear his due
proportion. If he declines to do this to
pay for his own tickets, for his own hand
bills, posters and circulars, and for the dis
tribution of them, he is, in a pecuniary
sense, a hog, and he is the man who should
Tuk very noticeable decline in the
wheat market created mrite a buzz of tx-
citement in Chicago, ' which continued
soveral days. A dispatch from that city
Bays: ''Favorable crops, rumors that the
combination has held wheat up for a few
months past were selling out, and the ex
pected outbreak of fever in the Southern
cities, have combined to depress prices
The decline in cash wheat has amounted to
about fourteen cents during the week,
the lowest sales being to-dav, when
an call wheat sold for July option at 8OJ2C
There were rumors of failures, but so far
,a known they were only temporary embar
rissments, and all firms interested are ex
pected to continue business. Clearings
were larger by $1,500,000 to-day than
. usual on account of heavy deliveries of
wheat by the combination. The total de
liveries made by thtm were 1,700,000 bush
els here and 800,000 bushels in Milwau-
DOOMED FOR THE TIME, IF NOT
No one who is endowed with the better
elements of human nature can contemplate
the present and future of the once proud
and prosperous city of Memphis, without
feeling that the hand of the destroyer is
upon the city, with no purpose to desist
, until the cruel, relentless work of destruc
tion is complete. Memphis ij to-day the
leper among Americau cities, shunned and
avoided by its own people-held as a thing
of horror, not to be seen or touched a
dreaded spot, fenced out by the surround
iog world, to be ravaged by its own pestil
fence; to suffer, perhaps to perish away
vfrom the sight of men in the grasp of the
bronr1 terror it had unwittingly nurtured
within Itself. ' '

herd of cayoteg to the wounded buffalo. It
comes to destroy tho city's life, to paralyze
its business, and to leave only tho skeleton
to tell of tho havoc that was wrought.
Dealing with the situation from a severe,
but practical standpoint, the Memphis Ap
peal sees the scourge in front of the city,
and looking beyond it, sees in tho light of
the torch of the incendiary, the starving
thousands who, to-day, are without food to
pass them over until tho morrow. Never
was a city in so ' deplorable a condition.
Most of her leading men have fled to places
of safety, hundreds of them never to re
turn. Of all those who in seasons of health
are there to plan and advise, but few re
main to share the danger, and counsel tho
bewildered poor, who cannot fly from the
terrors that environ them. Every man who
could do so, has looked, or is looking
to the safety of himself and his
:lepcndents; but not one word has he said,
not ono dollar has he kit, from which the
penniless may profit. No provision has
pTopeny, " no money nas vwu Biubvriuuu
to maintain an integrity, which, olco' as-
sailed by hunger, will prove but weak in
deed." The city nd county governments
aro impotent in tho emergency, and the
condition appears to be absolutely hopeless.
Those who left the city went under the
spur and pressure of panic ; while most of
those who remain have yielded to that foel
iug of dread and insecurity, that render
peace of mind end health of body impossi
ble. What will come of all this, no man
knows; but all may conjecture. Necessity
knows no law; hunger no crime. Tho
twenty thousand blacks and whites, now
penniless, finally driven to desperation by
their sufferings and wants, will enact
scenes, from a mere contemplation of which
the mind recoils for very horror. This is
the outlook, and in it we read the doom of
Memphis. Property values aro already
destroyed, citizens by tho thousand, flying
trom their business and their homes, as
from the grim monster himself, leaving all
to the mercy of the burglars and thieves or
the more 'dreaded hunt'er-driven mob all
these form an ordeal that but few men
who can avoid it will pass through lor tho
third time. In this lies the horror of the
present and the peril of the future to unfor
tunate Memphis. For years to come,
'though yellow fever gain no hold any
where in the South, the city will be and re
main but a mere shadow, a skeleton of its
former self shflrn of its business, its lite,
its wealth, its air of thrift, of all that ren
dered it the second city of the lower
THAT SAME OLD ABSURD PRE
TENSE. The War Department ha3 just issued a
statement that shows the falsity, the abso
lute absurdity, of the pretense that the Re
publican party fought the war for the
Union. It shows, on the contrary, that,
but for the willing hands and courageous
hearts of Northern and Southern National
democrats the muaou ana a halt ot men
who voted for Stephen A. Douglas the
rebellion would have been a pronounced
success, before the close ot the year in
which it was inaugurated.
The total number of mlistments from the
commencement to the close of the war is
stated at 2,C7S,9C7 men. The middle
States furnished a million, the Northwest
ern States a million, and the balance were
from New England, the Pacific States and
Maiue, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode
Island, and Connecticut, did very well,
considering that they were strong Republi
can States they furnished 197,814 men
a large army of itself. Rut the
single Democratic State of Mis
souri, where there were no Republicans at
all, in a comparative sense, furnished 199,
111 men a larger urmy than was rautered
by the whole of New England, Massachu
setts, alone, excepted.
New England, including Massachusetts,
(which State cleverly availed itself of sub
stitutes from all parts of tho country, to the
number of 100,0(J0 at least) sent into the
arcy 275,000 men. This is a very patriotic
showing; but the loyal portion of the
South, that is now so terribly maligned by
New England, sent into tho army of the
Union 431,000 as brave men as ever shoul
dered a musket 1
Iowa and Michigan, fierce alike m their
loyalty and Republicanism, and Minnesota,
Nebraska, Nevada and Oregon, all much
given to Republicanism at that time, furn
ished 180,762 men. The Democratic State
of Missouri, '"saw" that vast multitude, and
went three regiments better I
The three western states of Ohio, Indi
ana and Illinois, (where the two parties
were nearly equally divided) furnished 773,
000, or more than one-fourth of all the men
that constituted our volunteer army and
navy; and if there is a man living who is
dispt ted to deny tho presence, in both
brunches of the service, a full share of
Democrats, he need but call to mind tho
noble rccponso of Southern Illinois and
Southern Indiana, where, when the call to

arms was sounded, tho Democracy were
overwhelmingly in the ascendant.
It is with no view of boasting of Demo-
cratic patriotism that these ngurcs luuw
Republican sources) are given; but to show
tho absurdity of the pretense, so often and
so persistently urged by tho Blaine's and
Congers who find their way into the halls of
congress, that the Republican party saved
tlje Union, and should therefore, perpetu
ally dominate it. Of all men in tho coun
try they, arc tho last who should taunt the
Democratic party with a want ot patriotism,
or boast of the loyalty of Republicanism.
Had the North been mado up of such ma
terial as enters into their respective in
dividualities, there would have been no
Northern army in tho field.
