KEATING, ENGLISH A CO. 1HEHPIUS APPEAL FRIDAY MORNING, SEPT. 24. 1869. NEWSPAPER SALES. On tbe 31st of March laat. the flowing i3av of whAt newspaper men all cuiiivle to be tbe busiest qrtarter of the year, re turns were made by the several newspa per concerns of this rftv, sbowiiiK the fol lowing result : Appeal fIW! 98 Avalaurhe MM M Ax article appears editorially in yesterday evening's Idier, the ol j.-ct of which seems to 1st- to advocate the proposition of Mr. Klllar for the purchase of the city's stock in the Eittle Rock Itailroad against the proposition of Mr. M ahax. For our own part we care not which gets it ana even u we uni, we are not -urt that we can properly further intluence the matter by discussion through the press. We are quite b illing to ri the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to make the best bargain with one or the other as they may think Isest The statement we made as to Ma man's proposition for the forfeiture of the stock was made on the authority of Mr. Jamks, our city editor, win was present and heard, ami is respon sible for it as published by us yester- day morning. It was contained In the report of proceedings of the City Council, and was as follows: I a.s.1 prop, ise that after the Hi.ii in cash is paid for tbe sUa-k it shsll ! placed in the lianas or a trustee to ts? appoints bv the Hoard and the owners of the sto. k to be held as collateral securitv that the road will! completed within six month dating from the lirst Bf OettsBsw". MM The parties purchasing arc to have th use of said stock as its owners at all meetings or votes of stockholder for feitingall right and title to the same if at the end coisvpletcd. f six mouths the road is not We have long seen and felt the im portance and danger of that prodig ioug one man power which is wielded by Secretary BOCTWKtX on pretense of paying olf the public debt and en nancing tne value ot tlie currency. Whether he or his friends may have used it for pris-ate advantage is not so momentous an is.ue to the country a i-the question of what is the extent of theevil and how the possibility of such an abuse iu future may be pre vented. In our yesterday's edition we published au article from (Jen. Albert PiKEon this subj.s t, which, like what else conies from his pen, lurnishe- food for rethvtioti, and ha doubtless arrested the attention ol our readers. We commend it to the es pecial attention of the planting com munity, for whose benefit princi pally it was written. As to what will be the price of cotton, nnd what the planter shall do as to holding or selling, the opinions of the wisest men are usually worth lit. tie more than the opinion of mere guessers, w ho are as often right as wrong, it is certain, how Mt that facts are as stated by Gen- 1., and his arguments those of a more than com monly sagacious mind. There is no doubt that the Secretary, with his hundred millions of gold, by combin ing with the New York " bears," can powerfully intluence the price of cot ton, and that, for a time considerable enough to realise their fortunes. And the news uow is that they are preiwr ing to control the market if jsjewible. There Is a remedy against these abusesm certain, efficient and infalli ble remedy which is better than holding cotton for higher price. Ami Ifiat is Ihrtct ffiijjittent to Euro. If we have for exportation cotton worth two hundred and fiftv million of dollars, Uwidi-s sugar, tolmcco, and rice, as (Jen. Price suggest, to the amount of one hundred and fifty millions more, what hinders our er fect independence and complete com mand of the requisite capital for any purpose? If we tran place in Europe two hundred millions of cotton alone, equal to so many dollars in gold, what can New York do that we cannot in the way of importation ? Charleston failed iu its effort for direct trade be fore the war for want of capiul. It was found that goods could be pur chased by the million dollar shiploads, and -hipped to New York, and theno to Charleston itself, at les pri.vs than they could be Is.ught by the hun dred thousand dollar rargm and delivered direct in Charleston harlsjr. It was the ad vantage of large capital over small, and that capital, too, furnished in large itrt by the Southern (copIe themselves, if we will now pal atMMrikxf our cotton crop iu LivenH-Kl, Havre and Aimterdaui, vre shall have all the means necessary fordirect importation of all our sup plies at the lowest rates possible to .New York.

If we aliandon all but direct trade we shall have no more use lor I'nited Htates rags than they liave in California. ur merchants who have tr;- Iit on a small scale have all found it profita hie to them. EM it be done by com- nt, let there be co-operation, let our cotton go freely and directly across the waters, and the ships be fur nished with return cargoes oil our own account and we shall get better prices for what we sell, and pay less for what we buy. Direct Trade is a sine qua non to .Southern prosperity. And this can be assured by a combination amonir planters and factors, who would la? mutually profited by such an arrangement. In order to make the doctrine " to the victors belong the spoiLs," avail able, it is necessary lo lay on the peo ple heavy taxes and burdens grievous to lie borne. Unless the treasuries are first filled, it is difficult to get anything out, and the fuller they are the lietter for the sisiiLsmeii. Thev arc uo bet ter than common thieves, who rob all the same under the cloak of legisla tion. Theonlyilirierenceoeiwtvu in two classe is, that one takes the risk ol" is'ing convicted and punished, and the other evades punishment altogeth er. He who rolrs his neigh Imm- by legis lation, only doe- in another way what a highwayman and thief does in his If " resistance to tyrants is obedience to ;d," we sv no reason why resist ance to such tax-gatherers is not obe dience also. They are the instrument of the tvrant. and resistance to them is resistance to tyranny In our neighlsoring State of Arkan sas the Little Rock (iazttti states that the taxes " average outside of Little Rock from tire to m7i per cent." Un der Clavtox's administration, official stealage goes on on a large scale, and corresismding taxe must be levied to sunnort the operation. The Gazette does not proiosc that warlike resist ance which would be morally jiistili.t- ble, but proposes to make the best of a bad case, aud throw every obstruc tion jossible in the way, take every legal advantage, and do everything possible to be done consistently with obedience to law, and iu resistanee to this questionably legal spoliation law The (,'azttte says: We do not propose warlike resistance We wan: '.iir friends against the c.mmi sion of the slightest act of violence rxecpt in defense ol person and projierty asiailed without tne odor of law. .vis or vio leni-e are weaiions for our enemies. lint we do say that our people should not pavv the uniiit and outrageous taxes assessed In- those who are fattening on our adver sitv tor the vear lsiiy. until the validity of "the imposition is legallv determine)!.

It has been unlawfully assessed, ft is a vio lation of onr Constitution, of every frv constitution, of every just principle cd government. It is not an act of govern ment. It is spoliation ; it is practn al eon fiscal iu, the destruction of the projierty and denial ot tne Ireedoui of the citizens. It is the enslavement of the entire people of this State, and their ruthless compul sion. !v the forms of pretended laws, to work for inexorable task-masters here at the capital, who have long been driving us. bv means of heavy taxes, as the an ient Egyptians droyc the Israelites, t make bri'ks lor them without recoui iiense In the assessment of the new tax l !!.', v. inch is developed tv the state ments coming from the several comities of this Slate, lo average, outside of I.ittl itis-k, from ri' t to nri-fu per i nt. upon the valuation, thev say to u as the Egyptian task-masters ere commanded : Ye shall no more giv the pisiple straw to make brick, as heretofore; let, them ff and gather straw for themselves. "And the tale of brick, which thev did make heretofore, ye liall lay n I-ti them; e shall not dimii:i;i aught thereof: lor they ls idle: therefore they rr, , saying let us go anil sacrifice to our I MM. I,et there be more work laid upon the men, that lliev may lanor therein : ami let them not regard vain words. Such has lieen the language of tvninnv all lands and at all times. To our re- in)nstrani"es against such oppression, n replv. our masters sav : e know thai the fieinocrac v ot me South have taught the nogda to hate tl Hadieal party; that they denounced it as party of proscription. 1 he laisiring white man of the South has always lsen delud.il into the ladief, so far us the le- mocracv could delude them, that some liodv way up north was about to rob him if some right, whereby he would t- isai .1 lower in the MM'ial status than theslav- r free negro. It has bsii the isdn'V of these men who are now disfranchised, t array the Southern men against those ut he North, and many men oppose the Re publican party for no other reason than it irigiiiali d in the .NortX lheironlv escape from conviction o the truth of our chant, is bv an appeal t sectional prejudice, of course, and to th strength ol party. Tin: gubernatorial canvass in Mis- Issippi Is fairly begun. The issue, as Judge Hi nt Uites it, is between the Bitter Knders, or Extremists,'' who desire to disfranchise tbe whites, and the "National Republican Ctiion par y," which favors "universal suffrage ami universal amnesty." Pr.vr urges the negroes to sUmd by the National Republican I'nion party, as cotnpri ng their only real friends, instead of going with thtsst- who go for the spoils of ottlce, caring nothing for them The uegroe have no true friendi among the carjKt-baggers, who infest and undertake to control the State, only to fill their carpet-bags and grow rich on the spoils, which, if they get nto office will be wrung chiefly from the labor of the black men. The nt groes cannot fieio seeing iiiat when the ari-tors grow dch on fat pick itigs of office, it must come out of their lalKir, because somelsKly must earn the money which the officers sjiend, living in tine houses and riding in tine carriages, and they do the tuost work which is done in the State. The DOT party pmpo.se to give the ne groes work, kind treatment ami iarge pay, so that they can lay up money. That is what ptior white men want more than they want votes. What good will it do a black man to vote for Aidkn, who can't get the black men on his own plantations to vote for him? What good will theyget by voting for carpet-baggers, who bag all the money they cau lay their hands on, and are too stingy to pay their washerwomen? If the black men will open their eyes a little, they must see that these men, who want to lay down in the same nest with them, and pretend to lie such friends to them, only want ottio-sand to get money by their votes, and for the rst don't care whether they sink or swim. The black men in Tennessee are Is-tter off now in Tennessee than they were when the carpet-bag men were in ower. rrt... , , . , I 1 Wll CrillDHN OtIC With a -IlortCIK ll iTK ?wl b wl " ' foot ran a raeeiu A letter from Gen. Forrest shows that he is progressing with his Seloia railroad with his accustomed success and energy. He has twenty miles actually built, ami has assured to him all the means necessary to con nect with the Mississippi Central rail road. He a-ks, very properly, what we are doing here, and whether we desire the advantage) that road raarh ing Memphis would secure to us. We shall act very unwisely if we do not move in this matter. A letter from Mr. Thomas Pkteks to our towns- man, Maj.'.SvKEs, dated Klyton, Sept. Ii, states that a charter for the Klyton road has been obtained from the Ala liama Legislature, and measures Liken to secure the same thing from Mis-i-.-sippi, tsides raising the means for a suitable survey. Rooks for subscrip tion will be opened at once, and mon ies and lands taken, ami an applica tion made to Congress for a land grant. Parties interested in mineral lands will also be applied to, and will doubtless contribute lib erally. Means sufficient to build twenty miles at each end it Ls be lieved will be raised at home, ami it is expected that then ample capital can be obtained abroad on lirst mortgage bonds to complete the whole work. sixteen thousand dollars ier mile ap- I pn, printed by the State will be then also available. Thus, if we can se cure the Sclma road, its advantages to us will be greatly augmented. Penn sylvania iron men are already on the ground, with large experience and capital, prepared to reap the advan tages, and to throw upon the Selma road their manufactured iron and coal, which may be made so advantageous to us. Energy and eo-ojHTittion Ls demanded. While others work shall we .sleep? And how long, when trade will lie lost by our su pin en ess? The Merupms ai'Pkal, ante-dilnvian Democrat, boils anil broils over the nom ination of universal suffrage, as follows: "We are astonished at the persistence of those Conservatives who have fall-.-n among the Radicals in t he advocacy of th most unslalesmaniike ami injurious pol ley ever advocated before a civilize)! co pie. Its very absurdity is monstrous. It is as if men should deny the pernfrimi consequences ot poison, anil propose we should swallow it, ami charge that we had lieen fisiLs enough to place ourselves un der obligations to do so. 1 et men, horn we have lieen accustomed to regard as ane, are bringing agencies to near to tas ten the damning incubus of negro suffrage on the people of lennessee! In other words a white "cracker," with possum skiu cap, raw-hide shoes, and one-gallowsed osnaburg breeches, with six inches ot a hickory bark shirt prot ru ling thnmzli tne posterior oritic" a ctiap not able to tell B from a bull's foot, and not knowing or caring whether ashing ton was a Spaniard, I hinamaii, Hutch man or American, should be allowed to vote, and to hold office, lieeause he is of Caucasian descent, so-called. Rut a sil- ored man who Isdiaves himself and pay taxes, and can read anil write should not te. White men who scour the country alter night, in disguise, should Is" per mitted to elect rulers for the people, but the unfortunate lalsjrers, who, after a year's patient toil, arc robliod aud driven from their cabins bv tbe maskers, must ls driven from the polls. What an absurdity is this! lilt were the deliberate purtsise of the Appkal lo bring popular govern ment into contempt, it could not effect its purpose better than by advocating such I liscriniination ot color in politics. .VuA vtttf Yc.. it nd Time. We maintain that such a " whit cracker " as the Pi-ex und Timttt des en ues is isctter ttian any nigger" in the universe. The very bst and tru est and most reliable of all American citizens are those to be found at th plow, dressed according to their work, and always looking like gentlemen when they are dressed. Does our co- temporary favor for voters only the 'colored man who behaves himself and pays taxes and can read and write," and wear the long tail blue erect on aneh-4 in the middle ol the foot? If that is the case the negro suffrage question sinks somewhat in import ance--in- iiardlv contends tor a taou sand el ion v ami mahogany voters in the w hole State. We are not particu larly anxious to obtain the votes of white outlaws. We will give them up clieertully. it they can lie sifti-d a chaff from the wheat, and punlshisl as they deserve. We believe that ninety-nine out of a hundred of them lMong to the Radical party, ami sl-p and skulk alsiut of nights with negro chicken litters. When these thai are all caught and punished then will not le a corporal's guard left ti " scour the country after night in dis- Lruise. it is only ttie " mean whites and negriH-s who will not work that are doing so. Hut tin PrtM oiid Time thinks we bring popular Oovcrunient into contempt " by advocating discrimina tions as to "color." We do no such thing. We deny that the negro ha- any color. Popular government must have limitations. And when Irishmen and Germans are forbidden to vote lieeause they have no natural- jition papers; or educated vouths of twenty, because they are not twenty one, we think .Mr. -samijo should In kept out lieeause his skull is too thick, and because his brain is inadequate for the best self-direction, ami wholly in- capame of wisely controling other If opular government caunot stand the exclusion of Samiio without coin ing into contempt, how is John Chi naman to be avoided, aud how Ls it possible to exclude any one? Diks tne i "ve ami iiiiiex think the unnat uralized foreiguer of the " Caucasian descent, so-called," are not as good as the uegro?

Such men as Col. Warner, the Hon. William Hret-k, Capt. A. C. Fank, and (. Gordon Adam, were slaugrhtereu, and f lemocrats of the bitterest kind were brought forward as the most acceptable. There were about twenty-five eolored men present as delegates, and they were of an inferior anil ignorant class. The ae. tion of this Convention will have a won-' drniis effect in uniting the Kcpublican party, many w ho had bolted bavins; al ready returned to their allegiance. The most encouraging ais-onnts from all parts of the State are lieing daily received at the rooms of the State Kxeentive Com mittee in this city. Tbe Republican pari, is organizing rapidly, and the old Whig and I'nion element is coining in. Judge Foote, the strongest man In ICastern Mis sisai,pi, has utterly repudiated tbe De mocracy, and saya lie will support the Re publican ticket." He is in favor of univer sal suffrage and general amnesty, aud pre fers to ai't with that party which is sup ported by President (irant ami his admin istration'. The chief distinction betw i-en par ties, which is drawn by the Inbuilt and its correspondents, is that of sup port or opposition to " Universal Suf frage." To support, is Radicalism with the Tribune ; to oppose, Ls Democracy. Here in Tennessee, we have a sort of " half fish and half flesh " policy a lukewarm medium which Mr. Geke lv alHiminates and spews out of his mouth as too insipid for his Hadieal stomach. Hut this is only in name. They that are not for him are against him, and they ouly are for him w ho go lor negro suffrage and swallow the whole brute. These are quite suffi ciently so. No wonder political amal gamations are now lsginning to be seen as the precursor of social, and strange things happen. " Polities makes strange bed-fellows." TRANSPORTATION. DAILY OVERLAND U. S.
