CORRESPONDENCE. rrreanonJf ace, on Public Events, solicited K.SAT1NU. ENULISH CO. MEIPDIS APPEAL FRIDAY MORNING. SEPT. 10. 1869. X H SPA PER SA L ES. On the 31st of March last, the cluing day of what newspaper men all concede; to be the busiest quarter of the year, re turns were made by the several newspa per concerns of this city, showing the fol lowing result: Appeal .ulW H Avalanche 4MNI 00 We have recently taken occasion to condemn the meeting held in Xa-h-ville to take into con-idcration the disorders in Rnthertord county, not because we were wanting in all proper respect for the respectable gCtttlmca who were concerned in it, but beeanse we deplomi the very feet of the un due influence given to that matter by the importance which their grav. de liberations gave to it. The expres sion of correct views, lite the sjieak ing of truth, is always proper enough when called for, and when anything at all should he said. But great meet ings at the capital, conducted by men of 8tate reputations, and heralded by an influential press as the salvation of the State, and the proof of loyalty which needs no proving, must always le mischievous on occasions lews than extraordinary. No other inference can be drawn abroad from such a pro cedure, than that of undue timidity or that an urgent call existed for it. And hence our Nashville cousins should not forget that they are great men, living in a great capital, and likely to be accredited las the representa tives of a great State. The ef fect of their speeches and reso lutions (good enough in themselves) has been to produce the impression abroad very much as we had appre hended, that lawlessness was general or likely to booome so throughout the State, that their expression of opinion was tacitly conceded by them to be necessary to prevent such a state of things, and that the Radical charge of a disposition to lawlessness ou the part of the late " rebels " was well founded. Such are the inferences drawn by the Northern Radical press, not so much from facts which tiiey know, as from the par ticular fact of the exigence and ob- jecto of such a meeting. They infer (contrary to the fact and to the intentions of those engaged in that meeting, that rebel lawlessness has all along been particularly ready to crop out, that it has taken fresh license from the result of the August election, that it needed to be repressed by Judical measures, and that ;t was always utronger in tho late Confede rates than any where else a slumber ing power and danger ready to burst forth, like volcanic firs, whenever the restraining hand was removed from them. These gentlemen neither made in terms, uor intended the ad mission, that these irregularities were chargeable on the lute Confederates, we know full well. They will prop perly and truthfully deny both such an intention and such a belief. But the effect of their action is what we deal with, and their upright intentions and elevated characters only highten that effect, and render it more pernicious. It has now gone oat, authoritatively enough for all Radical purposes in the North, that the Conservatives, Democrats, ex rebeia, are, to a large extent, disposed to break the law in the oppression of I'm en men, black and white, and that the gray-headed, the wise, the tiftiid aad the good, (who comprise a part of the Tenmssee tieoplei are againat sch outlawry. This is not the condition of things here, and it ought riot to be made s,, to appar. There is no need oi public meetings, calling on the Governor to enforce the law, and promising him the ample support of the people. He knows that already, and all the Ten nessee world knows it, and all the world outside should know it as well. An equally law abiding people ainnot be found in the Northern States, so far as the whole body of old eitieens and ex-Un federate- is concerned. But we liave dis orders nevertheless perhaps in excess of some of the homes of tke non-emigrating elasg of young old la diew in New England. This is due to two principal causea, which, taken away, would leave us, as a peaceful people, without a rival. The first if the natural consequence of war upon all populations, and the demoraliza tion, especially to the young, which springs from the license of the camp. This would be equally trueof any oth er people in the same circumstauces, and especially of and conquered peo ple. It has nothing to do with any eetJonaJ feeling. Ooly those who -hirkid the tight are foot. They v. ho fuugM are friends, willing to be so. The seennd cause is the influx of stranger, adventurers, sharpers and criminals, from other States, and their influence on the freedmen. They came here to live as they may. Idly, luxuriously and dishonestly, or to en rich themselves without scruple as to the means. Disguised and undisguised, they commit crimes, tell the freed men that it is no crime to take from the whites what they can, and stimu late the indolent and more reckless and desperate of the late slaves to all the worst vices and crimes. The principal curse of the State is these u carpet baggers " by which designa tion is not intended to be included a single Northern man, as such. The freedmen would behave ten fold bet ter than they do, if these carpet bag gers were driven out of the State. These causes have produced the dis orders under which we labor, and which are not attributable in any de gree whatever to the countenance of respectable citigens. They were una voidable, ami cannot be immedi ately remedied. To put them down, needs no proclamations, no protests, no public meetings, no orations nothing btrt en forcement of the law, which nine hundred and ninety-nine out of every thousand of our citizens are and al ways have been readv to enforce with alacrity. To proclaim that fact by resolutions Ls only to make proclama tion of the integrity of the people of Tennessee, which is either alove a slander, or insufficient as the basis of a good reputation, and not likely to be mended by the most earnest protest tions of the ten righteous Lots in Nashville. We ask these gentlemen for the fjiture to possess their souls in patience. Many a " crisis " has passed awav even worse than that which oc curred hi Nashville, on account of Rutherford, without proving the death of the State. We eaunot afford to admit that our citizens an' lawless in any sense requiring extraordinary restraint. We cannot afford a tacit consent to Radical slanders, intended for Northern consumption and de signed to save the waning life of the Radical party. This is no political issue it is a vital one. The New York Tiiiw warns its Republican jarty that it is " unwise " for (Jen. Grant to Interfere in the case of Tennessee, that it is not the duty of the "general govern ment to determine the pertis.tn result of a local election." The Tim thinks interference with Democratic and Conservative tri umphs cannot be safely ventured m. The New York ffntrU adds, " We should say not." We are glad to learn tliat tin Life Association of America is attracting attention that there is every pos sibility of its speedy organization in Memphis, and upon a basis that will be satisfactory to our people, and in sure the sucoess of the Company. The gentlemen having charge of it are of themselves a guarantee of its success tie- method if doiafr business, awd the results already secured, insure what might be regarded as doubtful by the uninitiated. We had the pleasure of a visit ye tenlay from Dr. PiorGH, the origi nator of a scheme for a marine and industrial exhibition at MempMlsj on a scale of magnitude and looking iouch results as have never been re alized here. The Doctor is very en thusiastic in the undertaking, and promises largely, Iki'Ji of results and organigation. He states that men of capital and resource are intended in the enter prise, and that he has promises of bsp that lead him to re gard U as an accomplished fact. We Thk cin-ultrtion f the Aiulaneke is now rapidly in.-n-asitig, and ha reached a higher point than has ever before been attained by any paper in the South. The above is the affirmation of he Aralimrft? of September 9th. Some few might possibly he found credu lous euough to believe the statement of our cotemporary in regard to our city papers; but none, we opine, would for one moment credit thelxjast over every pijier of the Sotith. There are pajierain New Orleans publishing in a single day more than the self glo rifying AtrtniirfN floes In a week. WE had the pleasure of a visit yes terday from Dr. Wm. W. I,ka, of Ful ton, in this State, to whom we are In debbd ftw a copy of his speech upon the " Facitic Railroad," delivered at the great Commercial Convention, held in this city- in May List. The Itoctor has consented to become a can didate to represent Dyer and Lauder dale in the Constitutional Convention, which we'" hone wTII tie cafled together some time next February. As Dr. Lea agrees with the Appeal, the Ap?eax can do no less than cor dially commend h'tiri to the -fhvorof thepeople to whom he Is well known a people who have been gathered to gether during his residence in WNt Tennessee, and by whom he is re- garuV-d as the patriarch of the district. The I 'o.-tor can do much for his neigh bors, .ind we believe h i- their interests at heart. We know that he has the iBiemgence ana t&o ability for any position he aspires to. TiiEHpringBeld (Mass.) llepMi of a recent date says that white poplar wood is in good demand in Berkshire county in that State, and that there it brings $11 per cord, to be ntede into paper. A correspondent says : "This " is a capital text for an article on the " Importance of establishing a paper " mill here and the facilities afforded " in the abundance of the material " needed." We do not think an ed itorial is necessary. The cjuotatiou from the h'epiMioan speaks f itself and tells the whole story of the neces sity for the establishment of a paper mill hero bore where the material is abundant, where labor is abundant and equally cheap, and where the de mand is growing and is to grow be yond auy present or probable oppor tunity of accommodation from home resources. We hoj that the atten tion of enterprising persons will be drawn to this matter, and that we shall shortly hear of a movement to wards the utilization ef the material indicated In the way suggested. It seems evidently to nave been a part of the mokkh-Radical policy to make party capital out of what may occur in Tennessee, and to procure acts of outlawry for tliat purpose, if possible. To stimulate the fears of the negroes that they were about to le ill treated, and to incite them to such acts as would bring aliout retaliation by white citizens, was a very ready means of accomplishing that object. And accordingly, It is now ascertained that this programme has been in a few instances carried into effect, by some mean white men who were probably instructed or encouraged to carry it out. The Murfreesboro Mon itor has exposed one ofthe men, who has since left the State for the good of the State. But, while the Radical press has been prompt to condemn the whites who undertook irregularly to repress the disturbance gotten up by such men, it has not called for enforcement of the law against them, and we do not see that it manifests any particular anxiety to punish the negroes whom they made their instru ments and dupes. Another case has oc curred In Hardeman county, where some of the same villian- oas whites have endeavored to stir poor ignorant negroes to acts of violence, intending no doubt to leave them to take any loonsequences which may ensue, while like Skillman, in Rutherford, they fly from the State. Still another case of this character has occurred at Macon, where a riot was gotten up, which proved serious, and five of the Sheriff's posse were wounded in the attempt to suppress. This originated between a negro and some little boys. Next day the brother of tlia negro, who had threatened the life of D. J. Boswei.i., was killed by BoswELii, both drawing their weapons at the same instant, and Bs wei.l proving the most expert. In Rutherford county the whites under took to avenge the shooting of his horse from under one of the number, and the Radical press anil the whole Radical North is made to ring with it. But when the negroes at Macon un dertake to avenge one of their num lier, place a whole town under mar tial law and under guard, insult and t'-rrify women and children, and are with the greatest difficulty prevented from taking many lives ami laying the town in ashes, as they, with fear ful imprecations, threatened to do, no exciting comment Is made by the Radical press, no meeting is held in Nashville, and no troops are demanded or sent, or procla mation issued by the Governor on the subject, it is time that the ef fort to make party capital out of law less acts bv anv class or color tame to an end. Iet tlie law 1k fairly and equitably enforced against all without distinction. Jietthe law against in- citiug to riots and other criminal mis chiefs, which is now on the statute books, be faithfully put in execution, and no quarter be shown to such mis creants. And let more stringent laws be enacted if necessary. We shall have no trouble ,alout enforcing the laws always anil everywhere. In another column of our paper will le found the proceedings of a .public meeting at Collierville to declare that the people will enforce the hiw and defend themselves and protect all in nocent persons against violence. There are some blacks, and whites, too, who have lived in the laish and escaped the consequences of their crimes so long that they dare to threaten whole communities! They have served the Radical party while it was able u feed them, and now that the party is no longer able to pay they are getting desperate. The citi zens may have another necessity for self defense, and tints the party gain new thunder. The proposition of Mr. Bbixkley for the purchase of the Little Rock Railroad stock owned by the city, not being under consideration by the Board of Aidermen we have nothing to say concerning it. When the Board enter upon a discussion of its merits we will have comments to make. We only ask that the uiem liers of the Board inform themselves thoroughly and act honestly up to the ir convictions. ST? We have a scholarship in the Ken tucky University at our disposal, which we desire shall be availed of by some deserving young man who is ambitious of a thorough education, fitting him for any of the professional avocations of life. Such an one, by calling at the Appeal office may hear of something to his advantage. BOOTS AND SHOES.
