The following is an extract from a
letter received by Toof, Phillip & Co.,
of this city, from a planter near Fort
Oibsou, Miss. We a-k for it a careful
perusal by parties in the steamboat
interest who have any regard for the
prosiHrity of Memphis. The writer
say9: " I have been trying all summer
to get some of our plantersto ship part
ol their crops to your market, to try
it. One difficulty is toget the boats to
stop at an obscure landing like Grand
Uulf, to take on a few bales of cotton.
I am satisfied 1 would have made
enough to pay toy family expenses
over aud above the amount realized
In New Orleans, had I have shiped
my cotton to your city."

On Tuesday last considerable ex
citement was occasioned in this quiet
little burgh the home of " W. U."
and the ratting ground of W. B. and
Horace Maynaid by a four line " ?r
soual " which appeared iu the local of
the Press tout Utrald, announcing the
arrival of Col. Chas. V. Folsom, A. Q.
M., charged with plenary powers from
Oeu. Meigs, Q. M. O. U. S. A., to
seize and hold the East Tennessee and
Virginia, and the East Tennessee aud
Georgia Railroads the one running
from this point to Chattanooga, a dis
tance 112 miles, and the other hence
to Bristol, Va., 130 miles, both well
managed and paying road, and both
of them suppled, hitherto, to ! not
only clear of debt to the Federal Gov
ernment, but to have very heavy
claims upon it.
This announcement in the Prei and
Herald was followed iu a day or two
by a genuine sensation, with four
headers, announcing that the impend
ing conflict was about to commence,
that the Bald Eigle, perched on the
roof the White House, had uttered his
war scream, and was then and there
about to plunge Tennessee into " a
bath of bel-lud." In this sensation was
the following paragraph:
" It was rumored on the streets yes
terday that the order of the Secretary
ol War to Col. Folsom to take charge
as Receiver of these road, was tlie
first move by the Adhiinitration to
throw a force of Federal toUHeM on
Ibmtettee in order to provoke a voniticl
with the prople, and tMus, v.ttftrrpreteiise
of an humrYOtfion to declare martial aw
and plum the State under eoHtnl of a
miitajy Governor, who is to Or. none
other than Om. Win. B. Stoke.'."
This article, in iew of the declara
tions of Stoke, his mLs-ion to Wa -li-ington,
and the well known temper, of
the administration, (coupled with the
fact that Horace Mnynard ami a few
other rascally Radicals of his stripe
were here in Kuoxvilie, running
around as busy as bees in a tar barrel,
intent on some devilment,) set the
town on tire, as it were, and for a few
hors the excitement was intense.
Col. Foh-om, who is a gentleman In
every sense of the word, and a clear
headed, honorable man, iu a moment
saw the mischief that this statement
might caune, and lost no time in see
'"g proper parties and putting
himself right before the people, assur
iug them that hi-mi-siou was purely
a busine-s oue, anil not in any manner
connected w ith Btate or other poli
ticsa tact which "no oue who
knows Col. Folsom as your correspon
dent does, will for a moment doubt.
Having heard of the embroglio, 1 lost
no time after arriving here to put my
self in full ptiaai Iflain Of all the facts
connecUsi with the case, ami as the
matter is one of no ordinary public
interest (thftm tmithfl ol our Southern
liailroaiis being liable to a similar
seizure at any moment), I herewith
present them :
In September, 1S63, On. Burn-ide
occupied Knoxville, aud under oue of
the enactments for the " suppression
ot the relK'llion," seized and took pos
session of the two mllnwdl In iues
tion, viz: the East Tennessee and
Georgia, and the East Tennessee anil
Virginia ibiads. The roads were
thenceforward run by the (jovcni
ment up to August -s,, lsofj, a period
of two years. When Burustde took
powmiaa le found both roads iu
complete running order, with rolling
-tock, etc., enough to enable Mm lo
ruu them until JtgKb '60 without
expending one cent for anything
except the ordinary running ox-peu-ei
of a Railroad. Under
iho general order or procla
mation of the President, dated AUgU t
6, 1m"0, Mm were turniil over, uioiig
with all other Southern roads, to their
rightful owners, possession being given
to Col. T. H. Calloway and John R.
Dranner, (w ho were elected Presidents
of the roads July 2.r, lbti-i, In anticipa
tion of this action of the Federal ( Jov
ernment), August JS, or twenty days
On takiug charge of his road, Presi
dent Calloway (as also did President
Dranner) caused an itemized bill to be
made out against the Government for
the use of the road, locomotives, etc..
for two years, anil also for a round
house and machine shop, destroyed
by Gen. Burnside, while they were
under his charge. The General gave
a memorandum receipt fur the amount
(something over six hundred thousand
dollars), and endorsed the bills as di
rect to the beat ot his knott' ledge.
These bills were subsequently en
dorsed verbally and by letter by den-.
Grant and Thomas.
Believing them to be valid, and
that there would lie no delay about
getting them paid, with their strong
endorsements, President Calloway,
acting for the roads, purchased of the
Government rolling stock and mate
rial tor the East Tennessee anil Geor
gia Raihoad to the amottat of $870,
000 00, and for the Virginia Road '.o
the amount of something over two
hundred thousand dollars. . After
making tho purchase, under n-sur-ances,
and in the full belief that the
accounts of the roads would he al
lowed as an offset, President Callo
way was called on by ati A. Q. M., us
an agent of the Government, and re
quested to nign bontls for the amounts
specified. This was a BOW pha.-e iu
the ariair to him, aud he at first de
murred complying, asking time to
call the directors of the roads to
gether for consultation. This the
officer peremptorily refused to wait
for, and ordered Colonel Calla
way to sign them forthwith.
In the existing condition oi altiirs it
was Hobsoa'a choice with him, and
the President was forced to sign tho
bonds doing it, however, under pro
test, and duress.
From that time to this Cols. Calla
way au1 Banner have been tryiug,iu
vain to get a settlement out ot tlie
Government. He and his friends
have begged, lobbied, petitioned
finessed and dip'ouiatiscd, anil all to
no purpose. W hile their bills against
the Government, admitted to be just
and equitable by Burnside who con
tracted the indebtedness, by Thomas
commanding the deiartuioiit, anil
Grant who commanded the army, are
no nearer payment to-day than they
were live years ago, these roads, after
paying V irginia and Tennessee one
hundred thousand dollars in Interest
(which, by the way, Is .07 3-10 per an
num compounded monthly) are now
about to be levied on anil taken out of
I tlie hands and government of their
rightlul owners already deprived of
over six hundred thou-and dollars'
I worth of iheir earnings, witftout in
terest. This Isa plain statement of tho facts.
which shows the merits of the case,
with which, however. Col. Folsom as
a subaltern a servant of th Govern-!
mem, oouud to obey the orders of his
nuuenor. lias uothing to do. On re
in this condition matter stand. Col.
Ko! om wrote to Washington fori
further orders and advice. Col. Callo
way immediately called a meeting of
the directors and of the stockholders, j
The former assembled here yester
day, and again to-day. The latter
meet to-day. The directors assembled
unanimously endorsed their Presi- i
dent's action. What subsequent
i course of actiou will be adopted it is :
inipos-dble to say. If it were possible
to sue the Government the roads would
long since have taken this action.
They are anxious to have the question
put on its merits before the laws, and
are confident if this can be done they
will receive from the Government
some four hundred thousand dollar.?,
instead of having to pay three hund
red and fifty thousuud.
This much, 1 think, from my own
knowledge of Col. Folsom. there is
nothiug political in the movement; If
a I - - I ' ,
itierc cre newouiu uui uv taugiu
having anything to do with it
are two good reasons which prove
this to my mind. In tho hrst place
the order of seizure was made out,
signed and delivered before tho late
election. In the second (by tar the
strongest argument) more than
half of the stockholders and
directors of the roads are "out
and out" Stokes meu, and
supported him w ith all their jiower.
If the conflict foreshadowed by the
Prat emd Herald ia to be brought on
in any such manner as thut dcacribed,
it is not likely the ' Eagle bird "
would commence by fighting his own
a cabal.
Horace Maynard and one or two
other prominent Stokesites have been
in town for a day or two past, and are
I rearing around extensively, l'oiiti-
cians here are on the nut vice to know
what it means. The J'rcss and Herald
this morning calls Horace's attention
to the sedition law and reminds him
:Vnd his conspirators that it is in full
force yet, and although created for
the purpose of aiding Browulow in
his nhnolntinm. may prove just as
useful to .Sinter. So mote it Ik-. There
is no doubt in the minds of some of
the sharpest politicians of this portion
of the State that some devilment is in
the wind, and that Seuter wdl soon
be called upon to act with a strong
hand, and 0ritt4 or be crushed.
There is a singular unanimity

moil, or who did not have a per-
iltriei object for lieing tho other way,
who does not heartily endorse and
pray for the election of Johnson to the
position. The Radicals here admit
the fact to be a foregone eonclu-iou
and are terribly sore over it. One
well known politician whom 1
met at Chattanooga almost foamitl
at the mouth in talking about it. The
Press and Herald is out lor him strong.

too, are u played " since the " young

Tliero is quite n war going on here
between the bakers., and as a beneli
cial re-ult to the whole community,
bread is cheaper than it has been siuce
the war. Several bakers otter twenty
loaves (the size of our Memphis
ten cent loaves.) for a dollar,
and -jue, who is bent on break
ing down opposition, otters thir
ty loaves, guaranteed to weigh
as much as the live cent loaves, ior
the game money. We wish something
of the sort would commence in Mem

Farmer;, who were in town yestor
d iv after the rain say that if we have
an occasional shower during tho com
ing teu days or two weeks half the
corn crop considered lost will be saved.
The crop of wheat of this region is es
timated by competent judges to be at
least three million bushels. The re
cent rains, in addition to having
cooled the atmosphere, have made.
the Chanel's of all growing and uu gath
ered crops much more favorable.

Bishop Quintard's Movements.
In view of the fact that many in
fluential members of the Episcopal
Church are making an earnest effort
to prevent the Bishop's residence here
from passing under-the auctioneer's
hammer, the following paragraph
from the Na.-hville Jianner of Thurs
day, conies inopportunely, and might
be considered an awkward obtru
sion: "The Rt. Rev. Charles T. Quin
tard, Bishop of the Diocese of Tonnes-'
nessee, having accepted the invitation
to assumes charge of the Parsh of the
Church of the Advent, of which he
was one of the original founders, will
take up his permauent resilience iq
this city, snd will reach here Friday
next from Cnivecsttf Place."
The above notice in the Appeal of
fyesterday is calculated to mislead the
public, as the following extracts Irom
letters of the Bishop will show:
" To the Wardens and Vuatry of
Church, Memphis:
"Gentlemen: Having been request
ed to take charge of the "Church of
the Advent," Nashville, I desire, be

laration of my wish to reside in Mem
phis the very first moment the Church
will make it practicable. Nor is it
my intention to enb-r into any pledges
that would prevent niv removal at
any time my friends miht wish It."
And from a letter to the writer: " I
must call your atteution to an error
into which I seem to have led you.
The Church (i. e.the Church of the
Advent) in Sash rtle does nothiny for

We have more than once alluded in
these columns to the coming fall trade,
and expressed our belief that it would
be larger than ever before known in

Memphisareevidently impressed with
the same belief, and why shall they
not be? As a general thing they are
all working on actual capital. They
are able to buy for cash and do ).
Why therefore should they not antici

have had merchants from sections not
heretofore tributary to Memphis in
our market making their .elections,

been highly pleased at the range of
our wholesale stocks, but convinced
that they could not buy anywhere
outside of the manufactory on as favor

not the slightest doubt you would find

The day of the Cornet New Year's
Day Rosh-Hashanah.
This festival of the Israelites, com
mencing this evening after sunset, is
celebrated on the tirst day after the
seventh month (Tishri). in Holy
S ripture it U called "Tom Ternah, '
lmj uj we vornet. its meaning is
not dearly set forth by the words of
the law, but may lie perceived from
me context ana spirit or the Holy
Writ. The seventh month has a high
er significance even from the number
Seven, which is still increased by the
consideration that it takes place "at
tin-turning point of the year," invi
ting man to serious reflection.
Wherefore, the holiest of days, (day
of atonement; and tho most joyful of
fea-Ls ( Feasta of Tabernacle ) are to be
celebrated in this month.
The seventh month is eminently a
festival month, which fact Is to be pro
claimed on the first day, by the sounds
of the cornet. On the other hand, the
day of the festival proclamation must
itself be a festival, and, as the Drecur-
sor ot the holy day ot atonement next
following, one of a more serious na
ture. The celebration of the Xck year's
Dety was not known lu the Biblical
time. But when, Iu latter days, the
want was felt, to celebrate also a feast
at the beginning of the year, without,
however, intnxlucing a new festival,
it was found the more appropriate to
connect the celebration of the New
Year with the Day of the Cornet, as
this day not orf)y affords the right
mood for New Year's meditations, but
is also the sole festival Which tails on
a first day of the month,
Some Jewish congregations, among
