MEMPHIS APPEAL WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 29, 1869. NEWSPAPER SALES. On the 31st of March last, the closing dsy of what newspaper men all concede to be thebusieMt quarUtr of the Year, re turns were made by the several newspa per concerns of this city, showing the fol lowing result : Appeal f6192 86 Avalanche 4806 00 The Pre and lime publishes as a warning to Andrew Johnson the fallowing dream of a colored person, which it denominates " reliable and authentic." As Mr. Johnson believes in omens and dreams, and used to be somewhat of a climber on " Jacob's ladder " and is still looking upward and spreading his wings, this dream may serve him as well as another, in the way of warning, against coming flat down on the " yearth." No allus ion to the Senatorial election : My brethren and my sistering, I dreamed a dream. An' I dreaiiied dat I had de bery identikle ladder dat Jacob went up to set de Lord on. An' I put it up to hebben an', by de help of laith, I mounted aw .. up to cie tap an ; an it was ton xiorf ah.

An' I spread my wiugte ah; an' I gib an AL-MIUHTY jump ah; an' I got de larnationlat fall dat ebberyousee on (iod's vearth. At the meeting of the lth, held at Jackson, Mississippi, to ratify the Dent nominations, a discolored ora tor from Memphis was introduced, whose name was Harris, and the chairman in introducing, called him "a gentleman so far as politic it con cerned." That definition is quite original in Mississippi, we should think, though it has been practically adopted in some other places. It is rather difficult to tell at this distance what our neighbors of that State are doing, or how to class them, except on the same rule they have adopted as to Harris, that they are all gen tlemen "to fur a pontic it cottcrmed.'' We are not able to distinguish them very clearly Dy the nanus they adopt. The Wttrt Point Hi raid, which is neu tral among them all, describes them as follows: There are now three political parties In the field, vir: The National Union Re publican i or thoae w ho propose adopting In full the State Constitution that was re jected last year, aud also the adoption of the Fifteenth Amendment) another party consists of those who wish to defeat the Ktate Constitution and to reject the Fif teenth Amendment. This party is dia metrically in opposition to the first in ev ery respect. The third is called the Na tional Conservative Republican party, corn posed of those who propose to oocupv a middle ground with reference to the other two. The first of these, or the National Union Republican, is the Dm par ty. It supjiorts negro suffrage, and the Fifteenth Amendment, it bends the knee to Congress and Oen. Grant, and pledges them "unwaver ing support," nominates a carpet bagger r Governor, a negro for Sec retary of State, and, in the Northern district, a conflscator and Helper for Congress. The Vaiden Timer apologises for putting this ticket at .us mast head on the ground that "there is no possible chance for a true couserva tive white man's ticket," and tb Grenada Sentinel is disappointed. The situation Ls an ugly one, and we do not much wonder there should be some murmuring. What is gained by taking the negro, Grant, and the whole Radical Congress down at one huge gulp, that Alexins and his party will not concede you? We won here with Sextlk over Stokes, but we never avowed Sehtkk'h principles-. We would as soon have avowed those of Stokes. Indued, we would rather take Stokes or Alcorn either, out and out, whole hag, earn, barrel and all, than be placarded Sentrr sen tinels, or submit to be spurned by the master at whose feet we had fallen. What cat there may be in the Missis sippi meal-tub we way not be able to see. But if any good comes of avow ing principles not believed, and fawn ing in the face of power, It will be a new thing under thesun. We should as soon expect to asraiie the torture by sniveling before a council of Comanche braves. So tar as men are concerned Dent is no better than Aitin, and their principles are all the same, ex cept that the former conceals his, and the latter is frank and outright enough to lot every body know what be thinks and intends. The Convention seems not to have been very critical in examining the character of its candidates, or it would not have been caught by Mr. Carpet KELLooorMr. Mulatto Sinclair. The Mississippians have not been ac customed to obey the rod of a master in electionfinatters, and they are rath er awkward at it. If it was not too cruel, we should like to see the chiv alry of 'il voting the " nigger," Fif teenth Amendment, reconstruction acts, and such other trifles, and pass ing resolutions in self-defense that an untried, undefended, and unconYlctefl fellow litia-n was guilty of murder, that we might know whether these things were done with naturalgrimaces or on somehitherto undiscovered prin ciple. We suspect, however, that a clique not very large, has done more than the State desired, and what the people may find it right to correct. We take from the Cincinnati Gazette the following account of the great railway bridge over the tWilo at Louis ville, which is expected to le ready for trains by the 1st of November: A bridge was projected over the Ohio at this place in 1&5. in 183d a new charter was granted, but it was not until 1S6J and MSB that the charter was obtained under which the present company acts. In De cember, ISbu, subscriptions were solicited, aad by the following February $1)22,500 had been obtained. The largest stock holders are the Louisville ana Nashville, and the Jeftersonville and Indianapolis Railways. The total cost of the bridge is set dow n at a million anil a hall', and one hundred thousand more for right or way and depot ground. The length of the bridge is "20 feet, or nearly a uule. It supported by twenty-nvr massive piers The lonzes; snanis over the middle chute, and is :i70 feet. At this point the bridge is HOW feel atiove low water mark. There is a draw bridire over the canal of 114 feet clear snan. The irrade from the Ken tuckv side is 82 feet to the mile, the trade on the Indiana side being nearly 79 feet A long and heavy embankment is neces sarv on the west side of the river, and thi is nearly done. This bridge, in addition to its railroausos, is built for street cars and wagon, the supposition heinrr that at certain times of the day only one-eighth of the twentv-fur hour the railroad trains will occupy the bridge, leaving i freetherest oft lie" time for ordiunv travel The estimates of this grand structure toll the story of what it is. Ihe masonry o-.i rlTb.Mui," the iron superstructure 77t.UWO etc., etc., the whole amounting to $1,000, ouo. The German astrouomer Mr. Talr predicted some time since that the west coast of South America would be destroyed about 1 869 or 187 by some frightful convulsion, earth duakc or deluare of waters. The conse quence is that many of the towns on the coast are beintr deserted, and the people retreating inland for safety. A gentleman who arrived from alpa ralso on the 29th ult., on the steanu Limena, has furnished the following interesting notes of his voyage, whirl we take from the Panama Star and Herald, of the 13th inst.: The Limena left Valparaiso on tne 10!h of August and arrived at t'aldera on the 1:1th, where upon inquiry we learned that some verv severe shocks o! cartlriuaKc had been felt at t'opiapo, within the few days preceding-, causing much alarm. On til evening of the Mill the steamer arrived at T'sapilla. here we found the same fear prevailing, and learned that on tho night the 1.1th. at lit1., o'clock, a severe shock was felt ; most of the residents had move, to the interior. On arrival at Iqi.iouc, oi the afternoon of ttundav ti. ",ili, the same distressing tWf u c- told ot the an ticinated destruction of the' coast, most of the people had left, and the city wasquitc deserted. On the 14th at US- a long rolling sound was heard, which lasted same seconds. but there was no apparent motion of the earth, but at i a. m. on the 10th a severo shock wa felt. We arrived at Arieaon the Hith at 7 o'clock; at 4 a.m. a severe shock was experienced at sea. which wits perceptibly felt on board the Limena, and caused those who were awake to imagine the vessel had struck. On arriving at Ar- ica we learned that the shes'k had lieen terribly severest 'i past 4 a.m.: at i a.m. a second shock occurred; and at H a.m third; hut both of the latter were much lighter than the preceding one at M a.m. During the days of the Uth, 12th and l.'ltli the time at which the tirst great calam ity was to take place the people being much Irisrtitenc I at the prophecies ot Hit wise ones, left the place and went back u iKtn the hills, but during these davs no t roubles were felt. The whole coast ii rapidly losing its inhabitants, aud in con Requeues business of all descriptions is at a s land still. The Cincinnati Chronicle (Radical) boasts that "the adoption of the Fif teenth Amendment will crown the labors of the Republican party, and settle the questions evoked by the war, giving us a true, honorable and endur ing peace." If we desired to invent something by which to prove how all altsurd and bosh are Radical preten sions, we could not find an utterance more significant for that purpose Every one must see it is an after thought. BO far from being any crowning victory, negro suffrage for all the states was not contemplated or desired by the Republicans at the dose of the war. They have only stumbled on it now. Mr. Greeley first insisted on "universal suffrage and universal amnesty" three years ago, whom the body of his ftUow-i:ir- tizans vehemently opposed. The war itself was not carried on even for the abolition of slavery, much less for universal suffrage. But unforeseen circumstances have made it the main party slogan. And so it is now bla zoned in Ubio, not as new party ism, or third partyism or Liberalism, but as Radicalism, pure, naked and unal loyed. And that Ls precisely what it has become all over the country, as well as here. He who stands on that platform stands on the Radical plat form, out aud out, be he whom or what else he may. He may have ticon a Democrat, a Conservative, a Whig, a Unionist or a rebel it is all the same he is a Radical now, if going for the main thine, negro and white suffrage, made alike universal over the whole country, and on which theRadi eal programme hinges for success, is to be a Radical. The VhroniHe says: As it is the last, so it seexns to be Ihe most difficult step in all the great strug gle.

Of coarse the vote of Ohio depends neon iie result of the October elect ion, and the political complexion of the next Legisla ture will, without doubt, settle the ques tion of the rati rteat ion or rejection of the amendment by the Slates. While the country at larfe Joolta to Hiio to be true to her past history, and to the memory of her noble dead in this crisis we of Ohio narrow the contest still more and throw the responsibility entirely upon the Republican part v of Hamilton county Here w ill is. decided the political cii plexion ot the next legislature.

And now that it is ad mitted that the vote of Ohio is "ab- solutcly needed," and that Hamilton county will determine the question whether that absolute need will be supplied, we are glad to say that the signs indicate an adverse result in that county. Mr. Pendleton bids fair to have the eyes of the tax-ridden people fully opened in duo time to the tact that negroism is quite too expensive and an aggravation of their burdens It is neither likelv that Ohio will vote the amendment, nor that the amend meut will carry if she should.' Andrew Johnson. Editors of lite Memphis Appeql: Soon we shall have the solution of thi question. I'ntil definitely settled, it wil continue to agitate discussion inour.Stati and throughout the I'nion. Our opinions as to who should be the man differ, an our Judgments are doubtless influenced bv our urelori in .-. Amiarentlv the contest will he between Mr. Johnson and Mr. Ktheridire. The names of other distinguished gentlemen have been suinrested. The Hon. Milton llrown. iu West Tennessee, and Hon. E KwiiiL'. ill Middle Tennessee, have? warn friends and supporters, ami either would irraoe the uosition aud render good service to the State. But could either take his seat if elected, without an enabling act Is it wise to experiment upon such a pos sibilitvf This, combined with other con aiderutiona, will operate to place them in the back around, and leave the first named gentlemen the prominent contest ants. Permit me, Messrs. Editors, to assign a few reasons whv I am satisned that Mr Johnson will and bhould be -successful ii such a contest. In the tirst place, his own division of the Slate is almost a unit in his favor, whilst in each of the other di visions of tho State he has warm and nu merous supporters. I speak now of the members elect to the im-oming Legisla lure. The idea that the opposition of the old Whig party will be revived against I mi. will. 1 am persmuled. be found falla cious. East Tennessee was the Gibraltar of the Whig party in Tennessee, aud he has more strength there to-day than any one whose name has been canvassed lor Senator. Mr. Etheridge, though an old line Whie. was sever a favorite in that section, nor indeed was he so with the uartv outside of his own District. It is unnecessary now to enumerate the cause: whv this was so, but it is well known he was not fully trusted bv bis party in the State at large. Therefore, it other reasons did not exist, he cannot array the ele ments of the old Whig party in his sup port. erv little of the HflilH zeal o the old Whig party survives. They had seen their party gradually disintegrate In the North it had been, in a large meas lire, absorbed by the Abolition or Repub lican party, its advocacy oi tne uitctnne of interna"! improvements by the General Government, uau ceased to oe a disiin miishiuit characteristic. The great Democ racy of the West had adopted and utilized this theory for their own advancement and aggrandizement. Thev had likewise settled, in a great measure, the question of the distribution of the proceeds of the public lands, by appropriating the lands llieillsei.es joi . ie i omu .Kiirui. i oe bank question wasolisolete. The protect ive policy of the Whig party was about the old v article of their creed surviving. and it must lie confessed that there had been a wonderful revolution of sentiment in the Mouth, at least, on this question. That it was operating to the aggrandize ment of the manufacturing North, at the expense of the South, was becoming daily more and more apparent. In short, there was little enthusiasm or vitality in the Whig party at the outbreak of the rebel lion. The party lines were maintained more through the personal antagonisms of party leaders, than iroin a Hearty ad herence to the old party platforms. The great issues of the war completed their disruption and created new associations ind combinations. While it may be true that there is still lingering some of the old party animosity toward Mr. Johnson. I am satistn d it i- greatly overestimated, and can exercise little influence against him. I lie great Question will lie. who can l-st serve the Slate in the present emergency T This should control legislative action. No name can Is' presented to which ob- tectlona will not be urged. Mr. Johnson was never a lavorite will! your corres pondent, who was an old line Whig. His course iu the beginning of .and during! the war, especial ly while acting as military overnor, was regarded lv the writer as treasonable to his State, and ungrateful and tyrannical to a people who had lav ished upon him a wealth of political pre ferment. His co-operation iu foisting the amended t'oiistnution upon thoL.ate, in the exceedingly irregular and unauthor ized manner of its adoption, even hi warmest friends cannot vindicate, nor has he ever attempted it himself. 1 heard it asserted at the close ot the war, tiiat when a Iriend remonstrated with Mr. Johnson against the action of the so-called Constitutional Convention his reply was to the following effect: He acknowledged the whole proceedure to be irregular and revolutionary, out it was important to have a representation in Congress belore the collapse l the rebel- ion, which he was salistied was near at hand. He well knew the temper of the Northern iteople, aud was conv inced that they were intent upon reducing, fora time it ieasl the seceding Slates to a territorial condition. His great object was to defeat this action, as to Tennessee, after which all irregularities and objectionable fea tures in the new Constitution could he remedied. This, if true, might, under the circumstances. ! regarded by many i an extenuation, if not a justification of the part he took in the adoption of an in strument -prolific of so many evils to the statsv, Aiti'M.'tU him rtfthj His rejection of the Sherman-Johnston terms of capitulation, his merciless course towards Mrs. Surratt, and his early iol icy iu the matter of amnesty, are serious counts in the indictment we might frame against Mr. Johnson. These were great and grievous errors. We should, however, consider the circum- si jiucs under which, and the Mines in which he acted. Let us rememlivr the temper of our owu and of the public mind during the fierce days oftliewar, arid iinmediatel v after its t Jo-. . Who doos not remember how he first Itegiin to tolerate, then to palliate, then to justify. and finally to applaud things which at tirst he deemed anil openly denounced as monstrous? Men's uiinds ant) actions arc influenced by surrounding circum stances; and In estimating conduct and character, due consideration should be given to these influenees. Time mollified and modified Mr. John son's feeling and views. Sympathy for his section and tne people or fus section resumed its asoendency. As a mighty breakwater against the angry waves of Northern intolerance and persecution, he stood during his adniinist ration, interpos ing every obstacle he could to prevent Us ; in !:.. completely overwhelmed. Ii not successful to the extent of his w ishes, it must be coulees, d that he displayed a perseverance, pertinacity and courage de serving greater success. It cannot lie ip nied that the South is mder oiil igat ions to Andrew Jonnson. More than Imperial power was tendered him bv Cougreaii, by tile aceeptenee an d exercise ,,t which he iniirhl have held her prostrate, bleeding and suppliant at his feet. He rejected it and espoused the woa ana opprc-s-i 'l, and IV luiiiiiirv party "l In tile unequ il crfnfliet which ensued he was not victorious, nut tie never yielded, lie had and atill has faith in public justice, and in the ultimate tri umph of the pacrhc policy he so earnestly - uldlt to establish. And to-day clothed in Senatorial robes, he wonid Is- more potential than any rep resentative Tennessee eonlr! send to that august body, in still further protecting tin interests of ourdowii-trodden section and State. The idea, that he should be re turned to the Senate n uiply to assail Gou. (jrant and worry Republican leaders, or that lie aright have an opportunity of aviiiclnp his own real or fancied wrongs, is a poor plea for liis election.

Mr. Johnson's friends believe him eminently fitted, by his sue rior mental endowments, his intimate ac quaintance with all the hidden workings at the Government, both iu its domestic and foreign relations; his indalatigabte enemy in the pursuit of his ends, aud above all hi masterly defense of the co ordidate branches of government against the usurping policy of Congress to rep resent them in the present perilous state of public .afTairs. They desire to place him in the Senate that he may serve them aud not himself. They desire his election not as a reward to Mtn, but that all his il--; ot tut) 11, lis arrived ; high abilities may be made subservient to their political prosperity, as tbey hjelieve ho will honestly endeavor to make them. Mr. Johnson is an ambitious man. His ambition is to merit and secure the ap plause of posterity, which he believes can only be done lv an unswerving devotion to the interests of the people. Therefore we say, let Andrew Johnson be Senator. OLD WHIG. DRY GOODS.
