The 'incr.s. in an effort Sbe readable, plunlltdred the ipages of poor devil of a hack noveliast dodge was so thin we are surprised even the Pic. did not see through it. We help in this connection giving some tO our amazement at the l'ic-Tian s con lee. A few days ago these two e journals were engaged in a most onU war; they rushed up)on cillch r with battle-axes; theoy hurled huge at each other's heads; the din of conflict filled the whole city with and, both having the largest circula In the Southwest, oxpectLnt millions with anxiety for each issue of the t journals. That was a war indeed; a tremendous and heroic conflict, and it our hearts, though our cheeks bllanhled ty to so many terrors. Now, we that such combatants, after such a should not enter into an insignificant over a little "hog wash" sentiment o them has stolen out of some dime Alas! after the Trojan war, are our going to dwindle into Lili Shall the journal which struck like its rival which went under like high deeds b9ya war of fresh mest, sad the pQl eollarI th'efor in our markets are higher than in any other city in the United States, and yet New Or leans is nearer by several hundred miles to I the largest resources of beef, mutton, calves 1 and hogs of any other large town. Texas is now the greatest producer and ex- c porter of fresh meat in the world. She is the most reliable source of supply of live cattle I for the great cities of the West and North. I Visit the vast yards of the Union Stock I Dl)pot at Chicago, one of the grandest displays of the enterprise and energy of that people, and you will find thousands of the long horned and long-logged hut healthy and vigorous cattle from the great plains of s Texas. Those cattle are from Western Texas, and they are carried on railroads nine hundred and seventy miles. They are delivered in Chicago in better condition, in larger number, and at about the same cost of transportation as the same cattle are shipped to New Orleans. When butchered and sold in the market for consumption the best qualities of this beef will command twelve cents per pound. These cattle can be bought in Western Texas at an average of $~ a head, and butchered there, the hide and tallow paying the cost, could by refrigerating cars be delivered and sold in this city, with large profit, at five cents per pound. For far inferior meat of the same cattle our consumers pay from fifteen to twenty ients per pound in our markets. These, we believe, are admitted facts: That the meat sold in our markets is of the most inferior sort, such as would not be permitted to be sold in any other mnarkets in the country, may be ascertained by a visit any morning to our principal markets. Of the two or three hundred beeves butch; ered in this city daIly and sold to our poopie and devoured by them, it is a moderate es timate that one-half arq not fit to be killed for food and would nrt be sold by the I butchers in .the. other large cities of the country. Tetn'at causes and facts do we owe this 4 dition of our supply of meat and this I heavy burden imposed upon our people ? We I give the principal one : The lack of transportation and conpeti tion therein to bring the superabundant sup ply of Texas cattle to this city. The great body of them are now brought by Morgan's line of steamers and railroad. It is a rough mode of carriage, and the cattle are greatly reduced in weight and battered, ill used and made feverish by the exposure and handling. It is an expensive carriage, amounting to nearly one-half the value of the animals where they are shipped. Then it is charged that Mr. Morgan selects his shippers and gives a preference to certain persons who have a monopoly of his car riage. As a private capitalist and owner of boats and cars, Mr. Morgan cannot be con trolled in his contracts and business transac tions. There is no mode, of breaking down his monopoly and insuring to our commu nity the benefits of competition, except that of securiing other nmans of transportation. This experience ought, therefore, to imi press us with the urgent necessity of com pleting our railroad connection with Texas with our own means, so as to bring the trans portation of cattle under the control of our own people, and thus assert the claims of our city as the principal cattle market of the Mississippi valley. If we do not do this very promptly, St. Louis and Chicago will draw off the whole vast supply of cattle from Texas to their enormous yards and thence distribute them through the North and West, and we will be left to worry along with the present supply of indifferent cattle, and-our butchere be shamed and degraded by the sale at high prices of the wretched meat now con sumedi by our citizens. DEATH OF FORREST. (ion. Nathan Bedford Forrest has at last succumbed to a long and lingering disease, dying at Memphis, Tennessee, on the 29th of October, at the age of fifty-seven. He was born In North Carolina, to which place his parents had emigrated from Werst Virginia. He was the eldest of twin brothers. Ills father having a large family emigrated from Tennessee to Tippah county, Mississippi, shortly after the acquisition of North Missis sippi from the Chickasaw Indians, by virtue of the treaty of I)ancing Rabbit Creek. His father died shortly afterward, and the care of a large family, consisting of the widowed mother and several brothers and sisters, devolved upon Bedford, who even in youth exhibited the strong, manly qualities of energy, !ourage andl strong sense, which subsequently advanced him tA so high a posi tion in the regards of his fellow men. In the narrow compass of this sketch, we cannot group oven the leading incidents of his remnarkabl li'fe. A book describing his military exploits, which has had a wide circu lation, has done full justice to these. All that is proper here is to record the genernal esti mate of hli as a nan of commanding quali ties. Without education or a profession, reared in a rude and somewhat violent com nmuity, pursuing modes of life and business which exposed him to constant perils and severe trials of his manly qualities, and compelled a reliance upon his personal cour age' aln prowess, he always proved ready for 'very emergency and shrunk from no danger or responsibility. Like all mten of prominence of his age:' nd Ssection, Ihe was required early in his mnan i hood to itmpress the multitude with a proper f awe and respect for his pluck and resolution. Thus he benitme involved in bloody affrays I with desperate men, wherein he uniformly e proved the victor. These made him noto 0 rious. The qualities thus displayed were e- vinced in a better and higher sphere - in the p ractical and business affairs of life. A stern I sense of independence and self-reliance char t acterized his conduct of all affairs, and Smarlked all his transactions. He was a self f asserting iman, who commanlded respect in t all relatiotns. These qualities inclined him to military enterprise, and prompted himl to embark e in a semi-military expedition to Texas, short ly after'the acquisition of that State. The t dispersion of this expedition in Texas, when all prospects of military oporations had van ls isl(, threw young Forrest on his own re a sources, and he set to work as a wood chopper to make an honest living, and to raise the means of paying his expenses home. When C he got safely back to his old place of business, r he was a fully matured man, armed and equipped for all the duties and emergencies of life. Embarking in the businessof buying and selling lands and slaves, his transactions were one very large and extensive scale. He was yM ens of bla s~aiue. tallying round him the young men of Tennessee and Mississippi *ho armed, equipped and mounted themselves with their private means, he organized a cavalry force which made its mark at the very beginning of the war. This force rapidly augmented into a brigade and division, which Forrest led and handled with consummate ability and courage, until it became famous as the finest body of cavalry engaged on either side in the West. It would occupy too large a space in our columns to sketch the services and achievements of this body of men and the wonderful fertility, tact, daring and activity of its commander. No other cotmuand in the Confederate army could record more victories, more extraordinary escapes and larger results achieved with so small a force. To Forrest is due the now organization which was finally adopted by both armies; superseding the clumsy old system of cav alry, heavily mounted and armed, fighting on horseback, with sabres and carbines. Ills cavalry were in fact mounted rillemen, using horses only for rapid movements, and fight ing on foot as skirmishers and infantry, with the horses tethered, and kept out of reach of bullets and shells, but ready to be mounted 8 for pursuit and retreat. He reduced this to a system and illustrated its efficiency in 1 many brilliant campaigns. 8 In battle Forrest was the very incarnation of personal prowess, heroism and audacity. He always led the charge. and was the last in the retreat. No warrior ever shared so largely in the gundia ccrltnimniM. no General commanding large bodies of men ever pushed himself so recklessly into the very thick of strife, and 8 bore so perilous and conspicuous a part in battle as Forrest in every section in which his force was engaged. Ills idea of war was that of the cavaliers of the middle ages, when every knight had to choose his adversary and bring him to close quarters and a deadly issue. And yet he was always a delicate structure, and even during the war, carried the seeds of the disease to wh a he hail finally to succumb. But our sket -h grows upon us, and gives warning of the need of abridging 'I it, which we do with reluctance. but with a full confidence that other and abler pens will I find it a worthy and copious theme for elab orate description and narrative of one of the most remarkable characters and careers de veloped by our great civil war. A THRIFTY MAYOR. 'The Mayor of Baltimore has been afforded an opportunity of promoting cultivation and production, and increasing the health of the country in a manner and in a line wherein no other Mayor has ever yet achieved distinc tion. It appears that one of the duties of his office is to supervise and take care of a flock of sheep of the finest Mouthdown breedl, which were purchase some years ago, for the main purpose of keeping down and utiliz ing the grass in the public parks. This new duty of the Mayor of a city has been so satisfactorily performed, through several ad ministrations, that from this flock the cor poration of Baltimore has been enabled to supply to the sheep raisers of Maryland some of the best specimens of the pure Southdown for breeding purposes, which have even been Introduced into this 8tate* This fact and result increase the respect we have always entertained for the Mayoralty and corporation of Baltimore ever since they evinced so much more practical good sense and thrift in the management of their share of the legacy of John McDonogh than New Orloans. Baltimore and New Orleans were co-heirs to the large estate of that ec centric old miser. Each reallrod about a million and a half on their legacies. Balti more has kept her share; Now Orleans has nothing left of hors but a few cheap school houses anti a credit on the books of the city. Here is another proof of the thrift of the municipality of Baltimore, this grazing of their parks, so as to promote the propaga tion and developement of the beot brood of sheep. And yet here in tile city of New Or loans, within the limits of this corporation, and under the control of its Administrators, we have thousands of acres of grass, which are never utilized nor mlade productive of any useful object, but in fact are left to rot and decay, or to be appropriated by persons who have no right thereto, withlout profit or any sort of return to this city. When, in truth, if these lands were enclosed and put under proper admlinistration, and the owners of vacant lots compelled to enclose the same, and a small fee exacted from those who grazed on the corporation property, quite a respIectalble revenue might be derived there from, and our parks and commons be greatly improved by the cutting down of the rallk verdure, which renders them so ofensive' and and inslubrilous. In view of the wrtched condlition of tile large portion of the lean, worn-out cattle sent to u.s from Texas for our market supply. which, under tilhe Slaughter llousIe monoploly and the miserable farce of an ins)pection pro vided in the act creating tIhat monopoly, the people0 are compelled to buy and colnslume as good beef, woui( it not be an exccl lent ar rangement to afford to the.se poor, starved cattle, driven out of Morgan's boats and cars in a half dying condition, an opportunity of resuscitating thcemselves and getting into a state wilen under a fair insp:ection they might be passed as suitable for market, by allowing them to graze on the abundlant pasturage of tile city parks and public places. Is it not a mrost unthrifty condlition of the administration of the property and of tilhe ,.police power of a State and city which con demns a population of over two hundred thousand people t5 subsist upon lean, starved andi unwholesome aninmals, whell the city hasu under its control the means of rend.erlng such food nutrltious and whole some--of afflording abundant pasturage to tilthe wornout herds eject~d flotl the Texas boats and cars, into our "grand a.llluoir,' and permits such resources to runll to waste and nuisance rather than apply them to so important and valuable a use as that to which k tile Mayor and corporation of Baltimore have devoted a small portion of the parks of that city?
