Both are doubtless unwill ing to prove they have been falsely accused, having very forgiving dispo sitions toward their nialigners. Gov. Bullock, of Georgia, has published a letter in Forney's Chronicle in re sponse to the charge of having been gtJMjr of some Iladical peccadillos, such as taking bribes and converting public moneys tojhis own use. But he ioes not even deny the improper use of the public moneys. He defends it on the ground of a " long list of gu bernatorial precedents."

FONTAINE jU.tf.NIIS APPEAL F. A. TYLER, -FRIfsJtt MORNING, EDITOR. While it was cold and snowing here on New Year's Day, the weather in the Northern cities was as mild as in October. The Delaware river was free from ice, and the steamers made thair regular trips to Philadelphia, which is a thing unknown, at the same date, for several years past. JAN. 7, 1870. When we saw the negro band be- announce this fore the Avalanche office, with the crowd of negroes around, we were struck with it as a very potent argu ment to our pure rosy whites of Irish descent. Had they all been present to look on, the effect would have been much greater.

If we were to judge men by that criterion alone, we should prefer to trust for integrity the man who frankly avowed unpopular opinions, instead of one who was care ful to make professions on the popular side. Tith Judicial election to be held to morrow, is to fill vacancies in. the Chancery Court and the Law Court, occasioned by the resignations of Judges tfMiTH and Lee, the duration of which vacancies is only until the 6th of May next, when, by the provi sions of the " New Court Bill," those courts are abolished. The Second Cir cuit Court thfen takes the place of the Law Court, and the First Chancery CVurt takes the place of the present Chancery Court. At the solicitation of the bar, who were anxious that the business of these two courts should go on, Capt. J. A. Anderson was recom- j mended by a meeting of the bar, with j V, (i ,,.)...-., n ., i . , that Via ti..li1il ama 1 Unber the head of " Terrorism In Tenfssee," Forney's Washington ' "hrunk-le has the following. We pub lish it as matter of news. The state ments of facts, as far as they go to pro duce the impression that threats and terrorism exist among us, cr that the The Boston (Mass.) Advertiser of January 1st says: During the year ending December 31, 1869. 936,000 twdes of cotton have been sola in New York for export, home consumption, etc., at an average price equal to twenty-nine cents per pound for mid dling other grades in proportion (if reckoned upon the actual and varying quantities sold and the prices paid in ach weeK, or thirty cents ior miu tlling if averaged only by the price of j each week as they would be paid by a I onsumer buying only a week's sup- ! ply at one time) the proportion thereof taken by our manufacturers ! having cost at the mill twenty-nine and u half cents by tne lormer and ' thirty and a half cents by the latter average. The prices in Southern markets were relatively higher at even date through most of the year. The cotton goods produced in north-1 era factories during the same period, with few and small exceptions, were 'I -. . .:.... ,1 t,i,.i I thai. .1 I'll n 1 . 1 1 did not leave thirty cents per pound net for the raw material used in the hands of the manufacturers. In other words, cetton mills that were supplied with cotton from week to week as re quired for use, at the market price of eotton for each week, and sold their goods as produced at their market value, all, with the special exceptions above mentioned, either lost money on the year's operations, or barely escaped loss. Many mills show in their balance sheet a resulting profit j made during the year, from which ; they are making the small dividends j of the day. This, however, was speculative profit accruing to those who had the sagacity or good luck to buy at the best time, and from cotton bought when the prices were below I the average of the season. The fact remains that under the system of buy- j ing cotton as wanted, and selling goods j as produced, the manufacturing busi- j MSS generally has been a losing one ' during the past year. Those who laid in stock early got the best qualities at i the lowest prices, and other things ! being equal, made the most money of all that was made. The results to ' those who followed the opposite policy are patent to all, and need not be j stated. It is not to be assumed, how-! ever, that what was good policy one : year, under one set of circumstances, would be good policy another year under conditions very different, if not quite opposite. Last year the season began with nearly all our spindles in full work, ! their production, especially of heavy goods, being insufficient for the de- i mand, and for some months they worked up about 19,000 bales of cot ton per week; by October 1, 1868, we had learned the significant fact that the consumption of cotton in the ' world had so outrun its production j i during the year that it had drawn i down the surplus stocks in market j about SWLtOt bales as compared with October L 1867; and it was known early that our crop was turning out much less ginned cotton than its appearance in the field and its ! gathered weight of seed cotton had promised, for it was a wet season crop, always a small one, while th HILL, FONTAINE & CO Successors to Williamson, Hill A Co., WHOLESALE GROCERS I COTTON FACTORS " AND COMMISSION MERCHANTS M 326 FRONT STREET, MEMPHIS, - - - TENNESSEE HAVE for sale, and keep constantly on hand, full assortment of everything lu their lice, dealing especially In such ar ticles as Bulk Meats, Bacon, Moss Pork, Jowls and Rumps, i,ara.

The Tennessee Congres sional delegation does not truly repre sent the State, and not even tba Re publicans of the State. It is utterly false that " the L'nion peopl of Ten nessee " are in danger and they will not say so. The Chronicle says: The condition of Tennesson sine the be a candidate for the Circuit Court, thus virtually at two elec tions for the same office. Since, Judge Marland L. Perkins has become a candidate. So that there v. LI be two candidates for the Law Court vacancy, and perhaps also for the Second Circuit, and two candidates iMougan and Carctuers) for Chan cellor, in case each shall als run for the long term, which cornea off in the elftclion of May Gth. It ia gratifying to know that we have none but wor thy man in the field. The result will be determined by the exertions of the frienda of the different candidates, upon whoae influence and efforts it depbnda. The election of the best men for Judicial ofltees is not second in importance, but even of more im porLiiice than that of Mayor. A considerable number of the Republican members of Congress are disposed to demand additional conces sions fiom Tirginia as precedent to the restoration of the State to the Unicn. Another portion is willing to keep faith, Virginia having done all that was required of her. When the ion of remanding Georgia to military jurisdiction came up, Bixo eam, of Ohio, Farnsworth, of Illi nois, and several other Republicans opposed and acted with the Demo crate. Thi- shows that the shrewder end more intelligent Republicans are beginning to shrink from the con- i tinued career of usurpation, and to , doubt whether party interests can be ! ; it. When, therefore, another similar question comes up, cod when the audacious project of putting Tennessee under military ju risdiction t-hali be broached, we shall look for the gathering storm of discord ; In the Republican ranks to burst, and do much to render them powerless. Of such members of Congress as have the hope of any political future, we may reasonably expect that they will soon find a limit at which they will think fit to pause in the career of Constitution breaking. The argu-ruc-cta of the Democratic party have ' too much cogency.and the voice of the !Norih. to be impotent, notwithstand ing they come from a minority. There j is a power behind Congrasa in the peoj If, and there are extremes to whic h members may not dare to go in fear of the people. The division on ! the Georgia and Virginia questions ' indicates a beginning of the reaction. The inflamed feelings of the war are auaatiding, aud we think the Northern pco; j u ill n , begin to see their true interest in fostering and building up, TrM- r than crashing the South. And thie gained, we shall expect to see the j action of Congress, growing daily more and more conservative, and thia In anticipation of the coming elections. rubels got possession through the follv of Kepublicnns is deplorable.

The article of the Memphis , A valanche. the leading Democratic paper I of the State, on the "Jjth. rejoicing over i the death of Stanton, is tbo most disgust 1 ing aud profane outburst we have read since the war, and shows how completely I Tennessee has fallen undsr relwl control, i What can Congress do to relieve a people j thus betrayed? That is the practical qucs ! liop. We'seo men elected to office who I are disfranchised by the XIYth Amend ment, and, whoa so elected, preparing to ! disfranchise those who arc rosily entitled to suffrage. It was in vain to tell the : Democratic leaders that It they per siat in this course if their Conven ' tion disfranchises the colored man and puts disqualified rebels into power (.onrc will jind &vne wo.v to protect the 1 people. The answer in nearly every case was to defeat every man who took this view. Under such a terrorism as this the ; l'nion people of Tennessee are in greater danger than they were during the war, 1 and, unless shielded by Congress, they ; will have to fly to some other quarter. The whole Tennessee Congressional dele- grtion, with one exception, Mr. Hawkins, , have addressed a memorial to Congress ! setting lorth the facts of the case, and this memorial has been indorsed by Senator j Urownlow, notwithstanding his support ; of Senter for (fovernor. All sides in the Republican 'party take tln one ground, j Would that they had been equally har I monions be tore they believed in the pro ' lessions of their enemies. Is Philadelphia they propose to improve their water facilities, and im pose the tax on improved real estate alone, according to valuation. This j Ls a small matter in that city, and the ! principle of it operates more equally, j and is fairer every way, than that of our own Nicolson pavement, I which throws the heaviest part of the i burden on the unimproved juirt of j real estate. Yet the Philadelphia Age. says of their new project, " there ; is a reptile in it of huge proportions. Ordinances should be drawn to touch all men alike, and not framed to pro tect certain interests. There is far too much jobbing and speculating in Coun cils, and some day we will strip the mask off of certain men in both branches, and show how they open and iave streets and do other acts to benefit sections of the city in which they own property." There is much in this secret. AVe have observed, as a remarkable fact here, that the most earnest advocates of the Nicolson tax in our Board of Aldermen, were those from the new wards, where property wholly escapes taxation on the front foot principle. We hope our new Board will never be guilty of a simi lar atrocity, let the Legislature author ise what it may. crop mere togetner snowing a cer taiaty that the supply of the world I for lbOil would be inadequate unless j consumption should be curtailed by : advanced prices. Thi year, the season began with twenty per cent, ef our spindles idle, j or changed off from heavy to light ! yarns, equivalent to a reduction of! twenty per cent, or more in the con- sumption of cotton, say to lo.OOO bales par week, a rate not exceeded in the avenge since June last, and the de- j mand for cotton goods hardly enough to take off the diminished production even at the low and unprofitable ; prices obtainable. By October L, 18611, j wo had learned that notwithstanding Usa reduced supply of cotton during the year, its consumption had dimin ished iHiri passu, under the restrain- , ing power of high prices, leaving the surplus stocks in market about the same as in October, 1808. And now it is Known mat our present crop is : turning out month after month an un expected increase in bales, and much more Grinned cotton than the annear- : ! ance of the fields, and the gathered : weight of seed-cotton promised when ! judged under the experience of last season, for this was a dry season crop, always a large one, while the Novem hex and December reports from India tell of the promised abundance of the CNp there together giving the world fair assurance of an increase in the year's supply of cotton not less than 500,000 and probably 1,000,000 bales. ; Our prices now, by gold standard, are above the average of last year, in j the face of a supply promising to be! 12 to 2T per cent, more than the world ! could consume when prices restricted use within the smaller supply of that ! year. As these actual and prospective relations of supply and demand shall ' become visible in Europe, and when i the replenishing of their local stocks i shall have given tangible evidence of ! supply at hand, prices there, already i lower to consumers than ours, may i find their true relation in further de- ; cline. The comparison that we have ; presented of conditiens last year and this year, suggests the expediency of a j policy how opposite to that which was most successful then. When the ex- Iort trade shall have glutted itself at IBM present prices, or those two or three I cents lower (to Is? en a parity with ! Liverpool), doubtless an ample supply with no lack of better qualities will remain (or the largest possible home j demand. Ed. J. Taylor, Of DeSoto Co., Miss. VI. C.
