Rep resentative Townapnd answered count less letters from Memphis carresjKind ents, iu Hhich the mode of ortmUiug a new County Court is elaborately discussed. Sam.

The presence of an expounder of the true theory of our Government in the Sen ate ia a national necessity.

Before Barbour resigned, ami since the war, tlie County Court was deemed almost a nuisance.

The Yerger Case Argument Before the Supreme Court. What Ccrfein wa3 and What he has Qo-a. The Duei Between Cel. Boyd and Co!. Mosby. Reconstruction in Mississippi, Vir ginia and Tennessee. The Case of the Cuban PrWaieor Hornet. Washington-, October 15. In tlie Supreme Court to-dsy, tlP argument in the Yerger case w as commenced by Attorney General Hoar. He argued at length that to briug a case w ithin the appellate jurisdiction of thisOmrt, in the sense requisite to enable it to award a writ of habeas corpus under the judiciary ;'t it is mpan that a commitment should appear to have been Issued by a tribunal whose di cisions are subiect to, a -rt-vLsion by this Court. This Court has never granted this writ w hen the prisoner was not at the time he iietitioni-d for it in confinement under aa or der ul a couit whose proceeding- cnu be revised by 4 superior court. This Court cannot exercise any appt-lluie contract by appealing to a w rit oi error or any other proceedings ontside of its appellate jurisdiction. The military commander holds the petitioner, not under any order or dc ree of the Circuit Court, but by the military authorities, aud could dis charge t lie n thinner1 at his pleasure, notw ith.standiug the action 01 tiie Cir cuit Court. The habeas corpus issued with the certiorari as an udjunct of the appellate power, is only permitted whenever the military commis sion, by virtue of whose pnlftUUU the prisoner is imprisoned, nor lias this Court pow er in any form or by any procedure to remove the proceeti-i- -oi the Commission. Iu the case of the petit jmer, the aildres-jw ,,f :i w rit of habii(.s corpus tp, the military commander in Mississippi, would be an exercise of an original and not ap pellate jurisdietlun. The repeal by Congress of o much of the act of Feb ruary Is.,;, aj grant- aa appellate poVer t. this Court in aases aftafa aa ture was intended, and should Is- eon struisl, as taking away, not tin whole appellate power in rtte of lahcau corpus-, bqt the ap nellahi n,oe m tuiso.s' to which Oiat act applied, anr linally, the act ol I-H7, providing for a military gov ernment in Mississippi, necessarily suspended the writ of habeas corpus in that State, which it was in the clear Constitutional duty of Jjougress to do. Mr. J. M. Carlisle replied. He -aid, that as a citizen, he eoufessed thai there was no means ot determining What Congress might have intended to do, but it was certainly difficult to tell when Congress had come into court ami seized upon acauscsub-judi-cio, and strangled what might have been the intention, but as a lawyer, it was easy to say what Congress really did by applying the ordinary rules of interpretation, and by such means he found that Congress, by the act of 1SWH, repealed only the statute of lsiiT, which had given special jurisdiction before the existence of the i-lth section of tlie Judiciary act, yet was unalii-ct-isl by the repealing of the act of lSfW, and it was under the provisions ot that section that this prm-eeding was Instituted, and not under the . act of 1867, as contended by the Attorney General. He had heard no argument which had in the least shown that this Court was with out jurisdiction under the judiciary act, and he would be inexcusable in longer detaining the Court on a juris diction which it had reiterated and reaffirmed, time and again. Mr. Carlisle spoke briefly, without notes, making the argument of the Attorney General the basis of his re marks. The excitement first caused by this case seems to have greatly subsided, but few spectators being present to-day. The venerable Thos. Ewing, of Ohio, was present uutil the argument closed and appeared much interestee'. The Cv.Urt adjourned till Monday on the conclusion of tho argument. Mr. Field, of Massachusetts, wa ad mitted to practice in this Court. Washington, October 11. Abel it. Corbin has attracted a good deal ol attention lately in consequence of his alleged complicity with Flak, Gould e Co. in the recent gold bulling ope rations of Wall street. Corbin is well known here, and, I must add in sim ple truth, not very favorably. Many old residents remember distinctly his maneuvers in 1867 and 1858, as well as prior to those years, as well as a skil ful agent of certain Massachusetts and New York inteie-t-; how bis conduct was investigated and fully exposed. In the report of the Select Com mittee of the House of Representa tives, ol which Hon. B.

MANUFACTURES. Interesting and Pointed Speech of Major W. J. Sykes. In a repent Kppecfi made hy Maj. V. J. k ! s, of this ctty, nt Klyton, Alu., h" gave some statistics bearing upon the future irosPcts of this city as a e;r,-ut market lor every kind ol manufactures, cotton anil iron, as well as for the raw material, from these statenumts it will be seen that Memphis has advuutiiges such as are possessed hy no other city iu the West. lie said: " Iet us now consider what are to be your best markets. Vou now have f"the materials neces sary to the suit-ensful manufacture ol iron. You have on the mountain, within one or two miles of this place, more iron ore than can Is- found any where in the United States, if not in the world. The whole top of the mountain that is within sight of this village is a bluff of iron ore, many feet above the surface of the earth, anil this ex tenia between fifty and one hundred miles. Near tlie base of this mountain, for its whole length, will run the Alabama ami Chattanoo ga It.iilmad. Near the foot of this mountain (the Ked mountain) there an? also great iptan titles of marble and limestone. I mij' say with truth, that the iron ore' aud the limestone are inexhaustible. Within a few miles of this place, towards Aberdeen mines, commence the great Warrior coal tields, where the coal is so abun dant, and so easily obtain. -I, that it can he delivered on the cars at live cents a bushel, or less. These held extend toward Aberdeen fifty miles, and are in the heart of the Warrior coal region. There need be no fear that this coal will, in many years, be so diminished as to increase its price materially. Tlie quantity and quality of that coal are incredible except to persons who may make a personal inspection of the country. The North and South road will take you to the Cahawba mines, and the Elyton and Aberdeen road will take you to the Warrior mines at a distance of twenty miles. It will thus lie seen that you have iron ore, limestone, coal and water, all near each other, aud it hi on this account, as hits been well re marked by iron men from Pennsylva nia, that you can manufacture iron fifty per cent, cheaper than in any part of the United States, and it will be done on an extensive scale in a short time. But where will be your nearest and best market for these things? You do not wish to take them North or East. Your market must be the great and growing West, How can you best reach that market? To Cincinnati it is 181 miles by rail, to Louisville 35 miles, to Nashville :!1", whilst to Memphis, hy Aberdeen, Miss., it will be 25T miles. At Memphis you will reach the Mississippi river below all obstructions both winter and sum mer. ou will then be connected with a system of railroads running to ail points west and northwest, even es far as the Pacific It is in Uie center of the finest cotton region on this or any other continent.

A Plea for Alcorn, the Radical Can didate for Governor. Cm I AHOM V, Mls-s., Oct. lf.-T.i. Appeal: With my whole heart, I ap prove your independent treatment of the two Rodli-.il parties of Missis sippi. I am well satisfied that Gen. I Alcorn has many faults, and also that I hts political course has been shaped as j much by his jsT-on il antagonism- as by his clear, active, vigorous intellect. His antipathies and ait: -Indents are violent as his convictions are strong, lie has made many unrelenting ene mies, and as nntisy -tnunch friends. He ha- uMU afrpxirlj all that fhidi eallsm has saitl or done, and yet it w as impossible, needless or useless for him to.siiidemn Its acts and p.'atfonns. There was no place, for such a man in the ranks of the Iiemocracy, and he has sought to adapt the Radical party 10 ins purposes and views, fits suc cess Ls illustrated in. nualWeations which the RadKal ensvl has under-lKii.i- hi Mississippi. It was Alcorn's earnest appeal w Inch iuductsl the Rad ical Convention at Jackson to ileclare for universal sutn-uire and universal amnesty. He uersuad-sl the col ored and white assemblage in the .ipo-.i to approve, with shouts and acclamations, the proposition to invest JeflVrson Mavis with every right. American citizen -hip, deehtring thai the grf-at('onteilerate chieftain was no more urimtnal In the eyes of the law than himself. It happens that atnuad the whole newspaper urixtt of the South Ls arrayed aist Gen. Alcorn, and thitt Uw i misconci ved ami fosiriy misrepresented, Ls not dented. That he Ls worthy of confidence and fit for tasks of high office, was shown by his election to tiie I'nited States Senate, and by the fact that, as vblet af the Hoard of Levee Commissioners, fie is receiviny the high.stt salary ever paid us the Stale to one of its citizens. I! what purtizaii newspapers now say 01 i. .a. a. lie true, they were In fault who sent him to the I'nited States Senate, and weak who constantly give him euntnil of the leveps and of the sums expended in their construc- on. That we may have a Governor, to become a Senator i-apablo of staving his State, Geu. Alcorn should sUr,-l be prulerreil to Judge Dent. That the oiU-rveutiuii of Congress in bebail oi the levees may be secured, it becomes us to prefer Alcorn. That the Pacific road may be built, we should have a vigorous speaker and energetic agent iu Washington, or a Governor of the Slain who wields influence with the party iu power. It is not strange, therefore, that Memphis is not inimi cal to (ien. Alcorn. Your city and this State have common interests, and (Jen. Alcorn .Kvupit 'iiahle !',: lo l which will ei both.
