MEMPHIS APPEAL F. A. TYLER, EDITOR. WEDNESDAY MORNING, . JAN. 26, 1870. A friexd informs us that the list of delegctte from the Tenth Civil District, us published by us a few daye ago, was incorrect. The follow ing are certified to us as the gentle men elected: Dr. Lauderdale, J. T. Biggs, Col. Waddy and John Fleming. A Chelsea correspondent writes u, complaining that the children attend ing the public school of that suburb, not having any place of shelter, art forced during inclement weather to stand or run about in the yard or street aod wait the coming of the teacher to open the school-room at nine o'clock. He does not say that the school teachers are derelict in their duty, or feil to open school promptly, but he does complain kthat adequate shelter is not afforded the children by the School Board, whom he desires to inform of the fact that more than one hild has this winter died from pneu monia engendered by the exposure o! which he complains. We hope our Public School Board, composed of humane gentlemen, will look intoand remedy the evil complained of. From some information we have received, we think it of the greatest importance that the new police should be put on duty without an hour's de lay. The city is full of known pro fessional thieves, and crimes abound while arrests have fallen off. The usual average of arrests daily is about eight or ten in the First District, and live or six in the Second. Not a fifth that number fit arrests have been made for the last four or five days. This requires no explanation. The outgoing force is- neglecting its duty. We hear of two noted burglars escap ing from the stitionhouse from sheer negligence, nf 1 .ouses being burglari ously entered, and sales broken open with sledgehammers, and blown out with powder, in the most crowded and business parts :f the city. L'ntil the Mayor and Chief of Police can put the force to work let citizens be on vigi lant guard. We hope, however, the evil may be remedied to-day. Tut rsiay (to-morrow) the Demo cratic County Convention will meet for the purpose of nominating candi dates for SheTi-f, County Tax -Collector, Clerks of 1st, -2d and 3d Circuit Courts, State Tax-Collector, County Court Clerk, Attorney-General of the Crimi nal Court, Clerk of Criminal Court, and County Trustee. Candidates art busy, anil the canvass is exciting a more titan ordinary share of interest. We are glad to se on the list so many good men as to leave little doubt that such will be fleeted. We have heard the question mooted whether the Con vention should be governed by a ma jority vote. We prefer the time honored two thirds rule. In our ward meetings, there will almost necessairly be irregu larities, producing more or less dis satisfaction. And it may be that some candidates may be able to secure a majority vote In Convention, who could not bit elected before the people. But the presumption is, that such as receive a two-thirds vote of the Con vention will be sufficiently popular to be elected. A nomination of this character would give as com plete satisfaction as is papa ble. A majority nomination might not. As to the judicial election, w hich is to follow, we think a convention will be wholly unneces sary. The present Chancellor, Mok GAJf, and the present Judge, J. A. Anderson, are candidates, and are its good men as we can get. If they should be opposed at all, we may be sure they cannot be beaten by any men of interior qualifications. And we shall therefore have good Judges so far as those two offices are con cerned. Judicial offices not being po litical, it is unnecessary to make any party nominations, especially when we are so sure that none other than good men will be presen ted or countenanced by the people for either.of the courts. We have no business asking tbe political opinions of Judges, who have simply and dis interestedly to perform an impartial and sworn duty. To.nominate by a party convention would have an aspect objectionable as committing them to a party however really inde pendent and honestly they might act. So long as we select Judges by the people's vjtes, we think it better to avoid all appearance of jtartLsau action in the matter. A mil has Ipoen submitted to the House to give the President power to establish five American Bastiles, " in proper localities," to be called "Mili tary Prisons." The General of the Army is to detail prison command ants ; so much of the pay of convicts as may be stopped by sentence of courtimartial to go to the support of the prisons; uniform, clothing, ra tions, etc., to be prescribed by the Secretory of War; the President to appoint Chaplains. For discipline of prisoners, sitting in the stocks, soli tary confinement, deprivation of ra tions, tobacco, etc., will be prescribed ix. th discretion of the Court A Washington correspondent thus re ten to the matter: This movement is ominous of a reign of terror the more bo as the "bill" is adroitly drawn no as to answer other pur poses tbsT! the were ssfekeepme ami pun ishment of "refractory" soldiers. The weans also, are far In proportion beyond tL' rec uiremenU of the evil, so far as the 2 ,-.-nv" la concerned. Taken in counoe- Uon Vi'u. the fact that TrumbuU'sblll, ; tbe object of which is to legalise military I court martial, past and futuw, will very ahortlv beoome a law, the purpose Of Uiis pUi auta&t be iniaUkao. Tbe people, therefore, may and abort Id take warn ing, and behave themselves accordingly. Everything looks as if all we bad yet wit nessed were mere 'tarts and cheese- akes" to what is ahead. Those of thsm I mean the people) who have had experi ence in bastilea, and thus become, as it ..- ......,,i 1 . tun-h luxuries. TT1 H feel disposed to go on in denouncing the infernal tyranny with which the country s threatened ; but I advise those to whom ihe thing, being novel, might not be so Itearable, to shut their mouths, and, if thev give vent at all to their indignation, ;o dolt in confidential whispers. Virginia is to be admitted to the Union. The House accepts the Sen ate amendments, and the bill has gone to Grant for his signature. What next? An Ottawa, Canada, dispatch ex presses the belief that an amicable adjustment of the difficulties between the half-breeds of the Red River coun try and the Canadians will be accom plished before the meeting of Par liament in February next. There are 101S Mormon saints in Scotland, ail of them belonging to the working-classes, and all of them in a starving condition. The fact of their being Mormons operates as a barrier to their employment. Yet the British are a free people tolerant and liberty- loving. We have received a copy of the Christian Index and botti western Bap- tut, for Thursday, January 20, an nouncing the connection, as one of its corresponding editors, of the Rev. J. J. D. Renfroe, D.D., of Talladega, Alabama., We have no hesitation in declaring this one of the most inter esting and most ably edited organs of the Baptist Church in the South. As such we commend it to our Baptist friends. The Socialist conspirators of Russia have so far been able to defeat the police. Recently one of their number discovered to the authorities of St. Petersburg, the names of thirty members of the Agricultural Acad emy, who were enrolled as members of the Socialistic comjiact. The next day he was found dead with a paper at tached to his clothes, setting forth that he was killed as a traitor and informer. The police cannot master the mystery nor the murder. A few minutes before the adjourn ment of the House of Representatives yesterday, Mr. Muxgex, of Ohio, created quite a hubbub by presenting a. memorial signed by one hundred and fity-flve citizens of Worcester, Mass., in favor of repudiating the bonded debt of the Government. An examination of the memorial shows that it is signed by members of the workingmen's association. It was ac cordingly referred. This is only the beginning. A dispatch from Washington says that Senator Cakl Shvrz is daily in receipt of German newspapers, re gardless of politics, protesting against the probable nomination of Judge Strong to the Supreme bench, aud asking him to use his influence against it on the ground that Judge Strong, according to his orthodox reli gious views, as publicly declared, Ls in favor ol incorporating a recognition of the Christian religion by amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The N'ew York Tribune and the tariff men in Congress are blackguard ing and abusing Representative Dawes for his able, lucid and damag ing expose of the extravagance of Grant's administration, at the same timethat their vitujKTation of Revenue Commissioner Wells for his report destructive of the hopes of the mo nopolists, knows no limits. The New York Eveniny J '' (Radical), says of Mr. Wells: It dees not matter that he is a citizen of honorable repute, that he is a man ol sci ence, a statistician whose tame is not con fined to this continent, a man whose up rightness no one doubts. When his fig ures and tacts showed the poople how the iron, salt and lumber monopolies tuade the poor poorer and the rich richer, at once the hired agents and organs of these monopolists. Kelley in Coiifrreaa and the TYibune in the press, began to attack his character and honesty. And of Mr. Dawes, like Mr Weias, a man of honorable reputa tion, against whose 'integrity no one has ever lefore uttered a whisper: So sooner does Mr. Dawes speak for the people, against the monojKilists and jobbers, and show up waste and corrup tion, than instantly his motives also are impugned, and an attempt is made, not to answer his statements, which these JOD bers feel to be unansw erable, but to cast doubt upon hts character. We had hoped for the honor and credit of journalism, thatthis answer ing reason .with blackguardism and vituperation, had ceased. We are sorry to see it revived, and by the Tribune, a journal, that whatever its (tolitics, is usually argumentative and deeeat. In the course of her speech before the Woman's Suffrage Association hi Washington, Miss Ml HIM Collins drew this picture of the condition of one class of the working ioor of Xew England. She said : The suffering of the factory girls could hardly be described: poor wages for hard labor, in dirty rooms, shut out from the bright Bunshine, were among the ills that bad to be borne. Their hopes were dreary, their task heavy, their toil un ceasing, and great their endurance. Many of them were led astray from tbe paths of virtue by the artifices of the men, often the sons of their own employers. When they were rained, when virtue and all was gone, then the ministers and philan throphlsts come and build them Magda len houses and pray for their souls. Noth ing waa done to prevent their fall ; only to reform them VMM fallen. She then said emphatically, "We have no statesmen; they are a set of mummies." The last sentence proves Miss Jen nie's good sense. She hit the nail on the head. We have no statesmen, hut we have a number of men in Washington who play the very devil in trying to play that role. Elsewhere in this iss& we give the evidence of Got. Ln and Fisk, jr., touching the gold bubble of last year. It is a rich exjpose and will well repay perusal. Not only were members of the military family of Gen. Grant concerned, but his wife, who pocketed the profits of an investment of $ouu, 00(1. We do not wonder that nu m bers of the Investigating Committee and of Congress were desirous that no personal disclosures should be made, nothing affecting private character. Neither Fisk nor Gon.u shared their anxiety. The former, it will be recol lected, declared in a letter published last fall that he would, if compelled to go before a Congressional Commit tee, tell all he knew, reserving noth ing. He has literally kept his word, and is well supK)rted by his jwrtner, the President of the Erie Railroad, Gould, who verifies every word of his evidence. No wonder we have flunkeyism in the White House and that fine dressing, apish airs and shod dyisra are now characteristic of the Republican home of our President. The centenary festival in honor of the German patriot and poet, Arndt, elebratedat Bonn on the Wlti ue- eember last, was a grand attair, par ticipated in by all the dignitaries of the University and the representa tives of the intellectual and cultured of Germany. It is thought, however, that the centenary in honor of Beet hoven, the great eorviposer, which is to come off on the 17th of December next, will surpass this grand demon stration, since the musical fraternity of Euroipe propose to take part in the exercises. It appears from investigations by government officials that not -only slavery prevails in Sitka, but that upon the death of the master the stoutest and most favored of the gang is strangled to death in a way the de tails of which all but freezes one's blood, the body being afterward burned uj.Kn a funeral pyre in order to appease or propitiate the angry god of the Alaskans. Hon. Chas. Sum ner, who has become the particular opponent of slavery in every form, and wherever he finds it, has been re quested by the New York Sun to sur render for the time being, his cares in behalf of slavery in uba, and look after this less humane and more barbarous slavery within our own limits. Of course, he will de cline. There Is no chance for a bu reau, and the votes of the Alaskans " don't count." The bills introduced into Congress, and others said to be in preparation, designed to enforce the XlVth and XVth Amendments, are indicative of renewed encroachments on the so called rights of the States. Under those amendments' the Radicals claim complete control over State legisla tion, holding that Congress is the sole judge of what kind of a government is Republican in form. And, under the XlVth Amendment, it is pro posed to subject to heavy penalties all jersons subject to Congressional pro scription, who shall accept office un der any State Government; wholly ignoring the effect of all amnesty proclamations, as well as the legal presumption of innocence before con viction. The Washington correspond ent of the Baltimore Gazette thus re fers to this matter: "This legislation is aimed at Mary land, Delaware and Kentucky these being the only States which, at this moment, are practically non-proscrip-tive. It is further in contemplation to declare negroes competent to hold ex ecutive, legislative and judicial of fices in all the States, and pronouncing all discriminating State legislation in this respect null and void. The ha tred aud malice of the Butlers, the Schencks, the Sumners and the Drakes will never abate until the fifteen slave holding States, at the breaking out of the civil war, are subject to negro and carpetbag control. They think, with full negro suffrage, at least portions of even Maryland would be now in their power. It would highly gratify the inalignants if but a sprinkling of 'rich black blood' could be infused into the two branches of your Legis ture. They know well enough that under no system they could adopt would the negro ever gain a footing in Northern State Assemblies. The hypocrites are at this moment at fever heat in devising excuses for keeping Sambo from West Point and the An napolis Naval Academy. But I hear that this matter will shortly be pre sented in a form which wilt atlmit no postponement. If the entire South (including States which did not join in the secession movement) is to have the negro forced upon it as an equal, the epauletted upstarts, on sea and land, cannot complain if compelled to take them into their messes upon so cial equality with their wives, daugh ters and sisters. Admission to the public military schools would infal libly accomplish this end." The discussion of the Virginia bill has brought out a "confession of faith" on the part of Radical Senators, not only justifying the above, remarks, but suggestive of luriher tyranny. Even those who favored the admission of the Htate without express conditions, did so upon the ground that the States generally, in or out f the Union, are subject to the paramount power of Congress. The latter claims the au thority, under the clause guarantee ing a "republican form of govern ment" to the States, the right to reg ulate their legislation in all resMcts under that conferred upon each House the jiower to judge f the qualifications of its members, the right capriciously to refuse to admit (as in the case of Governor Thomas), or to expel (as in the case of Mr. Stockton); and now, under the clause empowering the House of Representatives to "count the votes" for President and Vice- President, the right is insisted upon of going behind the State seal, and judg ing of the legality of the elections and the qualifications of the electors. In short,.as things now stand, Congress has usurped the power of designating who shall and who shall not vote at all State elections. It can make or unmake its own members, and. while annihilating the conservative power of thejuaiciary by a simple act of its own, set aside an election of a President by the people, if such a thing could ever be necessary, under the flimsiest pre texts, and without deigning to sug gest a why or a wherefore. Besides all this, " the party " has an absolute reserve of ten (perhaps eleven) States, bound and pledged to " vote " the Radical ticket, upon pain of having their votes thrown out, as given in " bad faith," and their people again put under martial law, administered by some harpy like Butler or Bullock, or some ambitious pedagogue like Reynolds or Ames. Swindling Gift Enterprises. At length it may be hoped that the concocters of schemes for swindling the public by means of lotteries and gift enterprises will be punished as they richly deserve to be.; The House Postal Committee, we are informed by our Washington correspondent, has authorized its chairman to report the bill lately introduced by Gen. Farns worth to prevent and punish certain grievous abuses of the Postoffice es tablishment. This bill especially pro vides that the Postmaster-General, if convinced that any persons engaged in a fraudulent lottery or gift en terprise or scheme for the dis t nut :m of monev, may for bid the payment by postmasters of money orders drawn in favor of such persons, it provides, moreover, that parties detected in such dishon est practices as, for instance, sendinir out confidential circulars, proposing to exchange twenty dollars of jar. simile bank Botes for ten dollars in legal tenders shall be imprisoned eighteen months aud fined five hun dred dollars. The sums that have been extorted by swindling operations of this kind throughout the lens-th and breadth of the land are almost incredible. There is no doubt that the bill to prevent and punish the authors of so great an evil to individuals and to the community at large will become a law, and we trust that it will be rig idly enforced.
