Omen or thb Dailt Appial, I
Memphis, Juae 14, 1870. (
la opposition to ths proposed repudia
tion of the misapplied and misappro
priated bonds ol our State, it is argued
that they were accepted in good Csith by
the present holders, and that since they
have passed into second hands it will be
impossible to reach them. To this we
hsve to respond that although that argu
ment was advanced to protect the inter
ests of the people who held the 1S61-2
issues of the Bank ot Tennessee, yet the
Federsl Government, acting upon infor
mation at second hands, and that is known
to us to be untrue, has forced our Legis
lature to a repudiation that has brought
beggary to many cultured homes. In
this case we propose to repudiate that
which can only aOect those who ware in
the rings or in the Interest of the rings
which secured the issuance of these
bond. Poor men and women cannot be
hurt by the refusal of the State to pay
bon is that have been secured under
fraudulent pretenses, and that have never
been applied to the uses for which they
were intended. Hach s coarse can only
reach those who have shared in the profits
or those who hsve purchased for profit.
We therefore urge npon the Legislature
the repudiation of every railroad bond
issued since 18l that has not been
nsed for the legitimate purpose of their
issue, our bond-holders can ess er bear
with this trial than the widows and or
phans of the Southern soldiers could the
repudiation of the Tennessee money left
to them as the only legacy and the sole
source of support in what has proven so
far a trying future. The telegram pub
lished by us from Sew York yesterdsy,
setting forth that the Tennessee railroads
were buying these bonds with a view to a
big speculation we cannot believe true.
Tti -e who .untrol our existing raaCoad
corporations are men of at least ordinary
shrewdness, and certainly will not tamper
with these securities until their value is
belter defined. At present they are as
In a paragraph of yesterday, w he ran
we called attention to the growth of tiro
and lite iusurance in Memphis, we failed
in our enumeration of fire companies to
me!jti'n the Mississippi Valley, of which
oar old aud esteemed friend W. B. Wal
dran has recently beeu elected Secretary.
Mr. Waldran is well known in financial
. in les, and i appreciated as one of the
most cautious, shrewd and sur-essful
financiers in our section. His long con
nection with our railroad interestssecureil
for hiin a prestige and character (and
lustly, trto,) that must be shared by the
Company with which he is now connected,
and tor which we predict a telling success
in the future.
The news comes to us, and we regret to
publish it as a fact, that CM. Sam Tate,
.me ol t he foremost railroad men of the
South, a gentleman of pre-eminent abil
ity, lies on a bed of pain and suderiog,
and so low that his life is despaired of.
We can ill afford to lose Col. Tate at this
time, lie is needed now more than ever.
We are but entering upon the oareer of
railroad prosperity predicted by him and
for which he has Labored so long. We are
but iost beginning aud need his services
as a guide upon a road with witu'ti he is
familiar, and where, with Wwlu au4
vireenlsw and Forrest and Boyd, he can
lead this community to success. We
hope for letter iewa of Col. Tate to-morrow,
and will be glad to publish the fact
f his rapid recovery.
Our attention has lsen called to an evil
that is difficult of remedy, and to which
we must, in the performance of our duty,
call the attention of our planters, the
mercantile couiiuunily, unfortunately for
themselves, being already too familiar
with it. It is that much cotton has been
received iu this market falsely and fraud
ulently packed, the bales filled in with
trash of all sorts, and sometimes water
packed. We learn that one of our lead
ing cotton houses has had to allow several
reualea ou their Liverpool bills on aocouut
of stones and mud taken from tbe heart
of bales of cotton packed in the Missls
sappi Vllev, and sold with a purpose to
roll the spinner, or tirst confiding pur
chaser. It so bsppens that iu all tbe In
dian. -e uuiier our knowledge, last Mem
phis purchaser has bsd to suffer and aa- i
dure this robbery aud refund to tbe spin
ner iu proportion lo its amount. 1'he
honor of the planting community is at
slake in this matter, and we hope our
appeal will reach every member, that this
: mug of fraud be stopped, be suppressed,
it in nd other way by local associations
loruied for the maintenance of tbe credit
and good name of a class who heretofore
have stood nigh, as beyond any possi
bility of reach by the corrupting lffriu-en.-es
of the day. And while the planters
are redressing "this grievance, it wonld be
well fir them to take Into consideration
another that threatens to grow end
assume dangerous proportions; that is
the putting up cotton iu small
, es, jui.l the use of unnecessary quan
tities i't baling and rope. Jsooner
or ister ire are uound to hear from tbs
Northern and Kuropeau customer on this
head aud to liaie trouble. The recoil la
sure to coino, and when it does, it will
be sweeping in measures for the preven
tion of all such penny-wise and ound
foolish schemes. It is as usoessary to
maintain mercantile character as i!ier-.-.tutile
credit. Indeed, the one argues
the other. It is therefor to the internets
of all engaged in cotton proUuo-r and
seller 'hat it should reach the msuulsc
turer clean, free from trash, carefully and
honestly Backed, aud with as little ban
King atid cops as may be necessary for
its safe earns? and conveyance to mar
ket. Memphis has a good name abroad,
she must preserve it. To Jo so she relies
in ! ui it rely upon thfl planters who
wake this their market for the saLe of
their cotton crop. It is iu the cotton as
in al other business " Honesty i the
Is-st policy." To illustrate this,
we will tell a story that is vouched for (a
us as being true in every particular: Be
fore the war, in tbe viciuity ol a pretty
Ptlie town iu a neighboring State, UulatM
miles from Memphis, a we -t.i-.lo ;.. inter
j. ked iu the middle of a bale ol hue cot
lou an old and very lare grindstone, that
bad doue good service in its lime, and hail

of the Lown alluded to. who in

to the astonishment and amazement
iieer x-s. who could not believe thai
stone they bsd parked under the diree
MM of their master bad been to France
and bak iu so short s time. It is need-li-ss
to say that all the parlies were reim
bursed. The neurhbors of tbe unfortti
ii ale man made up a purst and j.aid the
auioaot of lh fund, and then tarred aud
feathered him previous to driving; him
from them iu disgrace. This severe pun
ishment served as an example for a long
time. We bojie it will mil have to be re
pealed in order that tbe honor and credit
of tbe planters of tbe Sofllh may be up
held. The money market begins to show signs
of an early era of scarcity, which, so far
a. in.ii uions bids lair to be as strin
gent as it waa last season. Already more
than one bank reports currency close,
with a demand in excess of their ability
to supplv. We must, however, add that
this is not generally the case, as other iu
stitatious have ample means ou hand at
present to discount such paper as they
look upon as desirable, and are at tbe
same time well hied in tbe way of bal
ances cash. There is littleor no exchange
