THE P-OJKtT OF THE "SOCTKErtX BAILKUAD AShOClATlOi." We bave a suggestion to make to tbe Comwlttoe of lbs Board of Aldermen, charged with the eontideratlon of the J project of Uie " Southern Railroad Asso ciation," mat iney cioseiy scrutinize me contrast of this corporation with the Mksieppi Central RtUroad Company, and report whether all tbe promitet, ts well as conditions of their band, with that road have been fulfilled to the let ter, or fulfilled in any tense that would Imply Jairnets and a determination or ability on the part of such Association to fnllfii thtic future contracts. The Com mittee euculd ascertain why tbe Central Toad has' Hot been continued, as promised by the "Association," from Jackson to Milan. This is a pertinent inquiry, and one the answer to which will have much -weight in deciding the city favorably or unfavorably to the modest request of tbe Association, to become poEsessed of the bonds oi uie Miesiesippi sua Tennessee railroad at ten cent 3 on the dollar. IXSlitAXCE IMILLIIE. The disastrous failure of the Southern Insurance Company, of Nashville, should receive tbe attention at tbe hands of the Legislature asked for by the policy holder of thst company. That tbe business of & company could, for so long time, be carried on in a way to minister lo the wants of ono of ti e principal efflcers, argues gross cfScial neglect on the part of the Board of Directors, and proves the necessity for a stringent law by which all Insurance oompanhs doing business In the State, whether heme or foreign, shall ba compelled to make quarterly exhibits ; and their books, as 'well as those of tha bmks, bo subjected to the annual ecrutlDy of a competent Board of Commissioners on Banks and Insurance. There la not a State in the Union whoso laws are so wido of the spirit of modern lmur-nce life as well ni-'flre as those of Tennessee, and not one where the interests of the Insured so much need to be guarded by that Intelligent oversight af fprdeu in other States by a publlo officer. Three men competent for office as State CommfsslonfK, aa above suggested, would mora than Bave their salaries or commissions by the prevention of frauds upon the public, and the enforce ment okexlstl-g laws in regard to the proportion of active capital a compared frith the ri? canted, IXrOKMATlOX WASTED. The Southern R-Ilroad Association, who bo generously propose that It tho City of Memphis will give them tho con trol of one r-ilrond, snd also mosey onough to build another, they will go on and build this second road and then magnanimously otwt and operate both tat their own Interests, have neglected to far to moke, clear one part cf-thoir pro gramme. They have failed tostate whst authority they possess for building the proposed railroad from Memphis lo ducal. ! Our information is, thatclt z ns of MeiopUls and of the counties along the route of the proposed line of road hold tho charter for eald road granted before the war; that elnce the war thoy have revived the ontorprlss; have procured a liberal grant of State aid for the work; that they have expended many thou sands of dollars In surveys ; and have a large part of their road ready for letting, and that they will actually eoon put a portion of their road under contract. And this home Company hrvo dono all this without having sis yet called on Memphis for one dollar of assistance, and without tho inspiring patronage of the " Association 1 " How does the " Southern Railroad As sociation " propose to build a road when another company holds tho rights and franchises, and are pursuing in an car- nest manner the objects of their charter? H05- can the city of Memphis confer on any combination of speculators tho right to build a road over a line which she does not control? It may be that the Mississippi River Riilroad Company, which controls the chartered line from Memphis to Paducah, i have screed to aell out their franchise, 1 , ... , their surveys and their right to State aid, to the ' Southern Railrod Association," but If so, that fact ought to bo known, for without such transfer it is clear that neither the said "Association," nor any other, can supercede the company so long in advance in occupying that field "Will the President of that road, Mr. A. 8. Mitchell, of Memphis, tell the pub lic what Is the present status of his enter prise; what are his prospscta of building It? what means it will take: what his estimate of the value of the line, and what arrangements tho " Southern Rail road Association " have made with his company to obtain its fr&nobises in caie they succeed In perfecting their little no gotiations with the city ? THE DRV MOt II. We learn with regret that the ?3,000 of Btock In this enterprise, reported last week as yet to be subscribed, remains to b9 taken by our oltlzens. Why it is that a company, of eo promising a character as this, goes a begging while "through railroads" are exciting the cupidity of moneyed men, passes our comprehension and is only explainable on tho grounds of its not affording 5250,000, at a cost not an equivalent for one years intcreet on the money. Here we are promised, tX & small out lay, a work of great utility, and that will return immediate results to tho city in acquisition of population and money, fl t u , batdea upon the hands of those who two months ago initiated it with some promises of success. In the Board of Aldermen It has no friends, and the Insurance companies, who should hail it as an ally in their labor for prof its, with few exceptions, give it tho cold shoulder. As it stands now, & suppliant for our aid, we think the dry dock enterprise a fair subject for treatment at the hands cf the city government. We think (and we suggest that it would ba well for tbe Board of Aldermen to give it careful thought,) that the city could afford to give sufficient of the space known as the Center landing to serve the purp3es of the docks, and esve to tho company an outley fur location that would very nearly reach the sum of which they utand in need. If our memory serves n ; well, that portion of the Center landi-ig that would be available for this purpose, is part of the accretion, which, it has been decided by the Supreme Court of the State, belongs to and is controllablo by the city. If so, we see no Juit grounds of objection to this company having the use of so muoh of it as they may need, and gratuitously, say for fifesen years. The results to follow the permanent establishment of these Bocks here will more than cm pensate the cly for any loss of wharfage or rents that Rt present is derivable from that space. We make the suggestion and hope it will bo acted upon, believing that in the absence of any disposition by our citizens to help, in money, it will securo to us what, we have faith, will be but the initial enterprise of many hereafter to redound to our credit and character as a poople. LO, TUE POOK IN Dr AS! On Tuesday we published in the Ap peal the facts of tbe programme laid down by Oen. Sheridan for the wholesale massaere of tbe Indians who disturb our military and rendor frontier garrison life irksome and d&ngerou? The telegraph yesterday, in a bilf re sume of an official report from that offi cer, gives tbe particulars of the first on slaught wbleh seems to havo been osr ried out to the letter, and to have resulted disastrously to the friben engsged. One hundred end two Kiowas and Arrapa hoes, with the great chief Black Ket tle, were killed, and ail tho equipage, ammunition and stock of the hoslilo un fortunates captured. The pursuit and attack were characterize- by the vim that Is part of tbo military renown of Gen. Ctjstar, and the fighting wss un relenting and cruel oven tho Indian women participating. In reading over the dispatch of Gen. Sheridan, we were struck by the ab sense of any regret for a course rendered necessary by the conduct of the white men whose robberies of the Indians in cite his hostility to our race ; and were foroibly reminded of the gloating dis patch of Pklisibr to the government of the late Louis Philippe, when be re counted his savage smothering of a tribe of Arabs in a cave of Algiers. No quar ter, no pesxe, nothing but extermination awaits tbe Indians under tho Joint management of Siiekmak and Sheridan, both whom believe in tbo contradictory and untena ble policy, for a Christian people, of m .t; gating the horrors of war by the lotllction of a punishment that Is in itself the sum of all its horrors. If anything were seeded to prove the correctness of the position of the Indian Commissioner, Mr. Nat. Taylor, that tho military should not be entrusted with the m&cge- ment of our Indian affairs, surely this massacre that threatens annihilation ought of itself to be sufficient. Peace and tho influences of Christian ity have made of tbe Indian nations on our Arkansas frontier a community possesj9d of all tb ennobling ln?tlao!9 and qualities of their whito brethren. Among them will be found men of high intelligence, well eduoated, possessed of wealth directed by creditable energy in avonuesof profit, lawyers, journalists, mechanics nod farmers. What has been accomplished with the3o Indians is less than two generations, maybe with tiose who now infest the highways of the plains and make travol, oven upon our great Pacific Rillroa-J, very danger ous. Congress ehould legislate upon this matter promptly, and profiting by the lesson we euggest, should initiate a policy for thefeo people euch na that which has resulted so well for the Indian Nation. THE AlSSBlIaSIO ELECTION. It Is time our citlzsns who havo the real interesta cf Memphis at heart, were making preparations to fill the plucss of tbe Aldermen whose terms expire on tho first of January next. Good, reliable and Intelligent men, of conservative and economics! views are needed, and will bs forthcoming if reasonablo assurances of their election can be giveu. Entering as our city is upon a career of prosperity but barely Indexed by present euccesp, she will need the exercise in her behalf of enlightened IccjI legislation and the best energies of tho best men that can be enlisted for her by the popular vote. Convinced of this, our citizens should at once make selections In their respective wards, put forward their men, and then prepare to put down all captious opposi tion, and beat the men that may be put forward by our enemies. We trust that no time will bo lost, and that before a week passes we will be able to chronicle the names of able, discreet, conscientious and sensible candidates for Aldermen from tho respeotlvo wards of the city. By reference to our first rage It will be seen that the merchants of Nash vllle have Joined with tho Committee from tbe Memphis Chamber of Com merce,, and have determined upon pur suing the question of a repeal cf the two per cent. tax. This co-operation of the loading men of Nashville, and that of the merohants of other parts of the State, together with the pre-determlna tlon In favor of the repeal or modifica tion of the law as expressed by Gov. Bbowxlow and other leaders of the Re publican party, as well as editors, leads us to hope that the mission of Mr. w. R, Moore and his coadjutors will be suc cessful, to the extent of at least a modifi cation of tho tax to ono per cent, upon Importations only, if not to an entire re- psal. We will give thanks for either, but in an espesial sonse for the latter re suit. The attention of our readers is di rected to tho report of Stato Comptroller Blackburn, and also a report of the condition of the Bank of Tennessee. Both documents are given to the public by resolution of the Legislature, and will be of Into rest, especially to property holders and capitalists. KATIOr A?j BOAs2 OF TRADE. Second Bay's Proceedings.

Communications were received from the Young Men's Christian Association and the Schorl Board, inviting the member-? to visit them, and thanks were re turned f )f the same. Mr. Randolph, of ChicagR, chairman of the Committee on Credentials, presented a verbal report recommending the ad mission of members from tho Corn and Ficur Exobange of Baltimore, which wf8 adopt.-d. lie als reported the delegate from the Diiimqup B-aird of Trade, and on motion of Mr. Kirlland, of Baltimore, the dele gale was admitted. Also a motion ad mitting Ike delegates from tbe Memphis Chamber of Commerce; also, a report by tne eame, opposed to admitting tno delegates from tbe Springfield, Ohio, B-nrd of Trade, which was re-commltted to the Committee. The Executive Council then reported concerning the civil service bill, and, on motion of Mr. Wetherell, of Philadel phia, tbe Board was asked to favor the passage of the bill introduced by Mr. Jeucks, of Rhode Island, at the last session of Congn-s. The whole subject was laid on tho table. The nes.1 section of tho report was that the Executive Counoll renew the application to Congress fjr a charter, which wa3ndipted. Tbo same In refer ence to the Central system was reforred back. A communication from the Detroit (Mich ) Board of Trade, concerning me capper interests of tho country was re ferred back, wss referred to the Execu tive Committee. Anotherfrom theLouis- ville Board of Trade concerning tbe channels of tho Ohio and Mississippi rivers was referred to the Executive Committee. A communication from tho United States Mtll Lino Company, tendering the steamer America for a pleasure ex cursion, was received and the invitation declined with the thanks of the Board for the kind offer. The following resolutions, offered by tho Chicago Board of Trade, were tho cause of a crest deal of. discussion, th9 deleirates from the Es3t generally op posing their passage, while the Western Jlepreseniaiives as strongly aavccaieu their adoption, which was finally done, by a vote of ayes 49, nays 26. They were as follows: Whereas, The custom prevails In mrs cities at tho seaboard, of selling produee, provisions and other property,. nominally fur cisb, but in reality upon a credit to the purchasers oi from live to fifteen davs. and Wbereup, Tho Western or Interior consignor of such property has been, in many cases, obliged to sutler less by credits so given by his consignee fo irre sponsib!o parlies, and at other times has beon obiirod to pay largely for gusran-ter-s by hi oonelgueo of sales on a credit, licsolved.

Said he, "The Government does not carry ths ms.Ha r it lets out tho work by contract, and so It may do with tho telegraphic system, with tho tame advantage to tho people. HEW OttK. New Yorii, Dicember ft. In a con versation recently, Senator Cameron, of Pennsylvania, told n Washington corres pondent that firmness In the adminis tration of the laws will restore tranquil Itv, and that firmness is what tho coun try obtains In Gen. Grant. Tho night bofcre the votn was taken on impeach ment, ho said Gen. Grant visited Ben Wade to urge on him tho restoration of Gen. Sheridan to his command In Loui siana as soon as . he (Wade) become President. Butler, ho said, Came near being the present President, as Lincoln wanted him to run on the ticket in 18G4 fcr Vice-President, but Gen. Butler then thought the Vice-Pretldemy an excep tional place. Tbo Herald says of the resignation of the Brititli Minister, that this prompt reepotue to the will of tho Briihh people i3 popularly expressed, and will bo re garded with satisfaction by both friends and foes of the late premier. There was, in feet, no other alternative, and that it would be a hsppy thing for our own country if every cabinet minister should fe&l obliged to tender bis resignation to tho President whenever the popular will ha3 been expressed in opposition to the measure of an existing adminis tration. The policy of the new British ministry will, no doubt, soon bo devel oped. In the meantime wo await the course of events in Great Britain with profound interest. They may be preg nant with slguificsnt consequences, not only to tho future of the wnole British empire, but to tho progress of Liberal ism among European nations generally. The Herald also commends Sheridan's movements agaiost the Indians as the only .true plan of deallng-with them. It i3 stated that Mr. Seward and seve ral of his friends are making prepara tions to visit Europe immediately after Grant takes the Presid ntial chair. Nothing remains row of Fort Lafay ette but a ruined mass of brick and mor tar. There is no fire on the premiees. Soldiera are still on guard. Several un exploded shells remain among the ruins, and may go off at any moment. Tne Jrsi to the Government will be about $250 000. Fire Marshal Kennedy took evidence yesterday as to the origin of the fire. A letter Is published from Gen. O. O. Howard to Gen. Braun, assistant Com missioner of tho Bureau for Vrginia, giving his reasons f.r closing up all but the Ciuim division and Educational work. He says: '-I have no doubts that a con tinuance of the Bureau in tho States not yet re-construeted, would, in many in Htances, be beneficial to the ffeedmen, but lo not think its continuance abso lutely necessary without other aid to protect their lives or secure to them their political right3. It is very true that in many parts of the late slave States, It Is difficult for colored men to got justice in Inferior Courts, and In many counties in those States his rights are neg lected or positively disregarded, and in a certain class 14 prejudice exists, amounting to hatred, which only time can eradicate. The conduct of this clasa may be restrained by a wholo;ome en forcement of the law, but cannot be rec tified by olilerrs of this Bureau. This has been clearly demonstrated in the States which have been reconstructed, aud in the unreconstructed protection can still be extended in a mora summary wsv by the military commander, through hls'cfllcew, under the authority of the rreconsiruction acts. Gen. Howard adds that tho civil authorities should supply the poor with food, but if it is necossary, to prevent suffering, tho Government qyi continue a limited issue of supplies, tnrough its military officers. H will, he save, continue the school work in Vir ginia, with all the means at his 00 ta mand, n portion of the appropriations therefor remaining unexpended. Halifax, December 3. Mr. Anard publishers another letter in reply to Howe, tie tanes points reiterauog ms unt as sertions, (?) and dispute3 his conclu slons resoectinir the charge aeaics the government, or tho motns of belnsannexionist?, and accuses Howe of encouraging and Uisseminating annexa tion sentiments anions ihe Nova Sco- tlans, and says that tho traders of the lo cal government have no other desigr than torecjvortneiriostconautution anu to occupy the same pesition they en joyed two years ago, and ajself governing colony ci tue rruwu. nuuuucauoM- nexation, nor will any mske an eiiert in tbat direction until the constitution be exhausted, to gain their liberty ; but the ume may come, u tne uruisu uovern- ment continues its opposition, wnen tne sincerity of Americans In their, profos sions of determination to maintain the principles of the Monroe Doctrine, not to allow any community on this eideof the Atlantic to he coerced to a stale of vas salage, may be put to the test. aiiiMssiri'i.
