HIE3IPUIS APPEAL F. A. TYLER, - - EDITOR. FRIDAY MORNING. NOV. 5, 186V El-sviiKRi: we publish an adver tisement from the Commissioner ol Registration calling a meeting of the Magitr.it's of Shelby county for Mon day next. We ri gret, rfaoe the law has passeAl abolishing the County Commissioners, that an earlier day has not been tixfi by Mr. Boriiii NF.iu for in common with the general public, we desired an tin Mediate in vestigation into all the acts, ordinary and extraordinary, of the late Hoard, which we understand endeavored all day VA-sterday to secure a quorum feir business. It were well that the Com missioners he warned in time not any farther to attempt to lagjbfikta in be half of this paaafit. VvV hOfJfB that He Aif the first self-impo-ed dntteu of our Magistrates will be to" look into and lay bare to the public gaze the cor ruptions with which the Commission ers stand charged. We regret thnt a spirit has mani fested itseir in the Senate adverse to the will of the people in the matter of tbi- I'oiistltuti'iiial Convention. We regret that any man could be found, in view of all that has passed, in view of the spirit that characterized Un people iu their election of legislators, who would have the temerity to cast a vote aguins t. freest and idlest expression oi opinion by l):- people touching the Coii-ritiitional amend monts and reforms it is desirable shouhl be inaui.'uratsl. If the people declared themselves more forcibly in regard to jiie thing than another, it was that a I'onvention should be called for the redress f all political grievances, and that the disfranchised intelligence of the State should once more give their A-ounsel and advice in the conduct of our political affairs. Every good and sincere lover of lil erty felt that nothing short of so sweeping a refonn would give the State eHA-e, and the general publii lifted up its voice caiting for the Con vention as a necessity beyond all others. The people lint SKNTBI their votes for that purpose, they elected the Legislature for that pur pose, and they demand that they shall have a Convention, that every man a ritiatm of the United States, twenty-Ann- yiairsof age ami resident Ail the Stale one yi ar, and of hiscoun ty six month-, shall vote, and that from the Eattkl of the wise-t ami best, without regard to participation in the rebellion, (hall b- sele and elect) tl repn-iiiaii es to that Convention. This is the conviction of the whole people, the wish of the whole people, to vote against which is to commit jioliticd suicide. The hill fortheCon ventiou, as it pass(-d the llou-e and is now before the Senate, meets with the approbation of tin people. They will Is- content with nothing If-, a:al will punish with poiiiical ostracism any man or 'nen w ho, under ever so plaus ible a pretext, shall attempt to abridge their rights i ,p prolong to the hast ex tent the disabilities under u iiich they have already t) long laln d.

Itut this is not the remedy. We are necessi-tati-d to )-oudemn the procedure, an wnnlly atiort aigntad and tndiacreet. Nothing could have tieen more HI- judg.sl, nor anything more calculated to pnsluce Use rial uii tonai of ototoi , which ar. ... luueful, and which pru- urui a"" men art- so careful to avoid. Kueii a uMnanre rould not he plated before the Legislature without arraying an aatagonkitic towing of c!a-- again-; d.,-, ,. I,;, ", .lllU Ul u . avoidisl with i-are. Such a inea ure, even if it was a good one, would ruin any legislator with the people, who, as its author or advocate, -houlj oe nare-orainisi enough to introduce it. This should have been seen tx-for'-haml and avoided. We have no idea, it is true, that any property-holder or capitalist iu the city designs any injury to the laboring poor. Ye? the intro duction of a property-holding qualifi cation into the new city charter will be anderslood as bo intended, and be treated accordingly. We are aston ished that it- authors should tail to see that our people, aceu-tomed all thi-ir ttoea ta. ve on all public Ajuestions, would neveT sul mit to it. We hope the evil will atop there, anil that this attemnt of soni) new paogaccaivi and wouhi-be-reforiners in the city will not lc regarded a- indicative either if the t a i .i . - it... ...:n - c . l . .

For the rest, we trust the 1. gi-laturi' will make short work of it, or confine it to that class. Thus it is that reform (so-called) arc e iierni- , . , . leiris- cious. Impossible attempts lation in the interests ol particular classes produce antagonistic feelings, and "the world is governed too ttobn by those who tlo not know when, why ! and how to govern. Class legislation of all kinds has nlways been con demned by the Democrat; of the Catted States, and iu that consisted the chief excellence of the old and the present Democratic parly. Many years have elajised since it wa proposed to connect the roads eouvergmgai oiempnis Willi uu riv- er aud with one another. Induce- , , . .. ... ...... nients for this consolidation were not as palpable when urged years ago, its they have bet n made by subsequent commercial events. Once there was hostility' to railways themselves, baited upon the same falseassuinptions urged by tlios', few iu numlsT, who oppose the alsolute consolidation of all Mem phis mil way lines. Hut lateral roads have been built, which, iu (act, owe existence to that tolly w hich refused to suller Memphis roads U connect with one another and rith the river. The Mississippi and Tennessee' road, having no connection with the Meni- phis and Ohio, the Mississippi Central tive. The Time w ill rind itself naturally sprang into existence, and 1 wj,0 0f the mark in the estimate of the gap between the two roads, inside j.ublic sentiment in Tennessw. Hut thecity tit Memphis, has sustained and W(. confess we should like to have the enriA-hed the Mississippi Ontral and tOtOWb of the OxH'ERsexplainctl, who, the Mobile and Ohio roads, even as it We understand, are now lending off in has iin)overished Memphis and ht offtmMm to the Convention bill, roads north and south of the city, in an the ground that they would e.x which Memphis wealth was invested, elude eighty thousand Tenuesseeans It was little less than stupidity which irom voting for or against it men imagined that Memphis, because she w, have as much right as them- sat a crownol queen of traoe on the inightiA-st river Af the A-ontineut, at the head of perennial navigation, could direct and concentrate at will the trade anil wealth of this immense valley. Local sellishness, which sough! to levy tribute, for drays and omni lus)si, upon trade and travel that mtit lie tree, overreached itself, and the Mobile and Ohio ami Mississippi Central roads were born of this Mem phis mistake and have been en riched by that perverse, narrow self ishness which shapetl the leical legis lation of thi- cilv. Evil- of which we ; complain and the legislation here crit- ictzctl have become so palpably ruin ous that the people at last revolt. I'ubiic sentini' nt crows clamorous for reform. It is discovered that the dis tance between the river and Memphis railways is the equivahot in Ireight to charges of one hundred miles of railway transportation, it costs as much to move a bale of gooils from the wharf to thedepot of the Memphis and Charleston road as to conwy the Bane freight one hunilrtsl miles tiver tie-same road. It results that fri'ight d) scemling the river and direct ed to points in the tiulf Stab's or to seaboard cities, leave the river at Columbus, Kentucky, w lu re the cost of transfer from the river to railways is nothing. Travel follows freights, and packet lines make ; Columbus, instead of Memphis, their objective point. To such an extent has this inaiteiition to our commercial necessities opcratOfi against Memphis, that the Nashville and Northwestern road, n ith its present terminus at Hickman, has been leased by the Nashville and Chattanooga road. It is proposed to alntudon that part of the line between Hickman ami Union City, and Columbus, Kentucky, be conii's the terminus of the N i.-hville ami Chattanooga road. Through trains from Charleston, Savannah, Augusta, Atlanta, Chattano)ga, and trom Montgomery, Alabama, will meet over these consolidated roails at ; Columbus, Kentucky, anil a village, immortal in revolutionary story, become-a mighty depository of trade for ail those States btek contribute)! to its hi-torieal fame. Commerce licconics an other X MIXES, tobuihlanother bridge j of Isiats across anothi r Hellespont, as St. Louis spans the Mississippi at 1M n ion t, giving tradesmeu of that city su-prA-niecontrol of the railway 0) mmere ! ol all those States which beeaMban j reached tin- Northwest through Mem ahla. There isaeorjanration orpartmTship at SI. Louis, owning a lino of steamers whoso freights tor the Valley of the Mi is-ippi have ever bivn distribuUil over the South from Memphis. While Memphis stantls listlessly contemplat ing changes in the aOaWse of trale and travel here diseussitl, an2 each mer ehant thinks only of his own personal aggrandizement, railway managers evince a share of statesmanship in eombiiiatioiis which must result in the uiter destruction of the northwestern trade of this city. The Nashville anil Northwestern ln-comes part and pur eel ol the Na-hville ami Chattanooga road, and has its northern torminu- at Co Iambus, Kentucky. The Si. louis I'acket Company discovers that Co- lumlms is the natural point for the ton or Mi-sissiiii Hiid TtoHMnaen roiuls, he-cl s the in-t and loss by n shtjinient here, win is a iuivalenl to another hundrtsi. It follows that Memphis can no longer remain the depository of freights from St. Louis, ( ncinnati and tic Nerthwent, )1' tlgned lor di-triluition throughout the South. In other words, unless tie- -everal Memphis roads he made to converge in the Navy Yard, or elsewhere on the river, the whole tradeol t lit- Northwest will ! diverted from this city. I'll haps two hundred passengers eaeh toy I ave New Orleans. At Canton, Miss., where travelers change i ears, the great mass of travel, ahhor i ring omnibus charges in Memphis, pi iii- the Mississippi Central road, ' anil the Mississippi and Tonui-ssee, in : which thi- city is a large shareholder, i - !; reft of tradic and travel, its stock Ix'coiiics valueless, and the road brings comparatively little wealth to Mem phis, if the Mississippi and Teunea-ati-were part and pan-el, as is pro- pAHed, of the Mississippi I liver llail . ay, the detriment done Memphis by the Mississippi Central would be im pereejitibh'. From these facts and considerations the importaniv of the immediate con centration of Memphis railways and the ahrogatiou ot freight charges through thi-city becomes paipahto, in this age of wealth, fka&am and rail- ways, crude may be attractt!, but never forced. lcstrit ti(iis (ritciriatinir in local A lii-hiK'-w defeat their own iurim..s M.i ..r -oaI it. r , x , .

The defeat of Johnson, therefore, implies more than UwMfp pressinn oi his pestilent denMfngao ism. It implies the inability of the aggressive Democracy of which he is a leader, to shape the course of logis lulion. The same combination which -i in Is Johnson to Greenville and CiMiperto Washington is capable, un der proper managtiiient, of guiding the afi'airs of the legislature, and making it a source of strength to the Union rather than an occasion of an noyance and injury.

In thisasss t esiKfiallv it is iiiuiorrtant." Is the defeat of the Convention bill the thing which Johnson's defeat implie.? Docs the course of the two GUonua in the Legislature fore shadow it? Is it a scmi-Kadicalisin, precisely suiting the views of the Re publican New York Time, which the defeat indicates? If so, the State is simply "sold." To suy there was any "triumph of the Union senti ment " is sheer atisurdity. No ques tion of that character was in is-ue. The "disorganizers " were led by InTlf llJWst, while the supjiortcrs of Johnson were eminently conserva- selv). The political future of men who take such a Hsition as this will be very brief and insigiiilicant. Hail such a course on their part been ilri'anied of by the Ltgislature, we know not whether oitKW John son would have been elected, nor who would have been the Senator. Hut we are sure of this that IIkmiv Okii Kit would not. An intelliecnt correspondent in the Ai'i'K.w, of yesterday v suggestAsl the establish meat of a gymnasium one large enough anil suitable for the thousands in Memphis whose seden tary habits call for exercise of some sort, as necessary to the sustenance of health and strength. In all the larger cities of the country, placid of this character abound, ami in the North and West especially, it is doomed ex pedfent that gymnasiums shai! con stitute an ,'tddeu la of the system o! edneation adopted by the highest schools, colleges and universities. , resident professor of one of the latter institutions says: " I have taken oeca " sion to witness, frequently, the ex "ercises, and the re-a!ts have more "than equalled my expeetOttona. "There has heel a manifest improVe " aMBrt in the genera! phy-ical telle of " the )-oM)sge, anil the increased mus " cular power and agility of the young ' men have forced themselves on tie " attention even of unpractised eyes. " I am fully satistiitl that these oxer " ei-is; have gn-atly inbsCfVOd the "general health of the stndenta.

Anil not alone the students of our schools and acade mies, but the people whopS habits are sedentary and therefore a drain uisin their vitality, should have the beiietit of a gymnasium, where, by moAlenite exercise, under the management of a disenvt director, they could rejuven-at- and recuperate anil prolong their lives and usefulness to the community.
