L Ji SATURDAY MORNING. : : JUNE I8.J870 QaW Rni"itTS.ETc, We woul.l lie pleased to i cosies from oar friends -in the country, I porta concerning thepropect of the grow in a swaps. The importance ol placing our .iers in possession of a thorough knowl edge of the actual prospect of our agilcultu- . rests cannot be loo highly estimated and la apparent that we will gladly re- eive any aathentlc reports ot the condition of tlie crops lor publication. Peiosh leaving the city during tliesum- mer months cau have the DajLV Appeal mailed to their address at the rale of twenty- rlve cents jier week. T 1 1 Acahwhe. which i. now in the liUjujMliiil of the County Tax Lit from Collector McLean which teas mi let out to the owet bidder, ami which is worth to it double the MBoaal of the City Tax List talks boat "the poor tax-payer" being br-nefited by taking from the Appeal. the city list, which is T& right by con trad. Wm want nothing which is not our fair right, ami we would sooner publish the List lor nothing, though running a newspaper at a cost of tif teen hurnlml dollars per week, than take one cent from tax-payers which is u' .iust or oppressive to them. The facts are simpiy these: In January last, the public printing of the city wxs advertised to be let out to the lowest and best bidder; whereupon, other journals of the city coming in fair competition with it, the bid made by the Appeal was accepted, and the A ITE M, elected City Printer, as pro vided by the old ordinances ot the city. The bid of the Appeal, was to ruiblish the proceedings of the Boards at two cents tier line, to publish what ever else might be ordered as an ad vertisement at fifty cents per square, ad do the job work at the lowest current rates, and to publish the tax list at the rates allowed by law. The following were the bids of the A cutanche and Appeal., as published iu the city papers on the ;id of Feb ruary last: Appeal' bid priming full official reports of meetings two (2) cants per lino. Kir .ulvertising, one square, each inser tion. :i.:y ."si, cents. For printing tax lists, : he rates fixed by law to be paid for tne "aine. 5 mm i aaaacsV Wat- Kor printing full official urssill II sa cents per line. For adver tfaingj one suare, one time, Itftjr (50 vry sulse(ueut insertion forty 4o -l-ius. Kor tax list no bid. The reason the Avalanche made no bid lot the tax list we -totee to be that the publishers believed the publica tion of that list would follow, of course, on being ;lected City Printer, and the compensation being already Haled by law, the Ml was regarded as unnecessary. The first part of the contract thus made by the A i i i.Ai. imposts a heavy burden, -ueli is would not have been under taken by itself for live Uines the price stipulated to be paid for it. The sec ond part was at lower rates than those chargtd to private individuals, which are necessary to the existence and support of adaily paper, imthfthinl part alone was compensation to be found ; audit was to gain that, that the bid was made. It was the sole :.e-uniary inducement, which, if ta ken away, would leave the Appeal to serve the public for nothing, at an extra expense of one or two hundred dollars at every meeting of the City BaMfe The Appeal, in accordance with the law requirinj: it, has given iLs bond for the faithful discharge of the duties undertaken. It has with much pains and great fidelity com plied with the stipulations of its con tract up to this time. And it now claims ai a vested right the enjoy ment of the profitable part of its con tract, while bearing the burden for two years of the unprofitable part of it. The claim will be recognized as simple justice by every fair minded isjrson. The Boards of Aldermen and Council may advertise for bid if they will, but the Appkal will not be a bidder. If the city will not execute the con tra' l it has made with us, we are not lisposed or green enough to make any more with it. To say that the tax-payer is in any wise injured by carrying out in good faith the con tract made with the Appeai. is an ab surdity, for the reason that the whole public service performed is at a low rate, and lower than others were wil ling to undertake it lor one part of the contract being profitable, while the other-, constituting the main portion of it, waff a burden. And to say that tax-payers would be benefited by tak ing away the rights ol the APPEAL, w ould be to say that they could be benefited by rank injustice toward a journal which has served them faith fully for years, and not been a begger at the public crib. Injustice benefits no one, and though it should save tnem the whole amount of their taxes, would be spurned by (he tax-payers of Shelby county. When the whole expense of publishing the proceedings of both Boards, running through a period of two years, is taken into con sideration, with a tax list to publish profitably but once a year, it will be neen that the A ppeal could make at the most but a fair living rate. And if the proceediBgs of the Boards and tax lists were to be paid for separate ly, the expense to the tax-paying community would be greater than by' the arrangement made with the Ap peal, even if the tax list was pub lished at less than half the rates now allowed, by law. Thk heavy, eoawless gewwl rains t the pant three Jays, and the damp, oM weather ot (he precedingSveek, have sUtgjrered the faith of merchant in the coming cotton crop. Curious flsotH have resulted from misfortunes to cotton -growers. It has happened that almost every Carmtr, especially in the lowlands, 'dehpltie the protesta tions of the Appeal, and other South j mi journals, obeyed the natural in stlncts of selfishness rather than tne dictates of wisdom, and the greatest f possible area of land was devoted to cotton production. Com and grain fields have been sadly neglected. Each farmer, having no great sum of money, and conscious that Sambo could only be trusted when tied to the fields by self-interest, and that no other contract would restrain him, has given his negro employes a share of the growing crop. Having planted too much cotton, and each planter being "horribly in the grass," each seeks to secure a greater number of hands. Farmers having no green backs, are abandoned to ruin. Cutfee looks over the grassy fields, and seeing how king cotton, in tender youth, bows in disease and death before the storm king, and how green are the feilds with indlstructible grass and weeds Cuflee leaps the fence and hies away to that cotton grower who has ready money to pay for indispensible "helps." Moneyless farmers who have "over-cropped" themselves are utterly rained. Great numbers have abandoned only a part of their cotton crops as hopelessly lost. More labor is required, because of recent ceaseless rains, in cultivat ing the excessive cotton crop than was anticipated, and it has so happened that the more cotton planted the less there will be oroduced. The loss of the cotton crop will may induct) farm ers to give greater attention to gar dens and grainfields, and the loss in one direction may be, to some extent, a gain in another. But we fear they will endeavor next year, as heretofore, to make up in that year what they have lost in this. At a meeting of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, on Tuesday, the subject of the Southern Pacific railroad was presented, in the form of a report, which was accompanied by the following preamble and resolu tions: Whkbbas, It is the opinion of the Chamber of Commerce, ot theclty of Cin cinnati, that the construction of the South ern Pacific railroad from Memphis, Ten nessee, upon the Mississippi river, to San Diego, upon the Pacific ocean, by way of Kl Paso, would largely aid in developing the agricultural ana mineral resources of tne country; would ellectually protect onr northwestern settlements from the incursions o. savage tribes, and go far to ward settling the Indian problem forever ; wotiid increase our commerce, strengthen and bind togpt her our extended territory, and, by enlarging the area of taxation, give additional security to the public credit; and, Whereas, The great distance which in tervenes between these highways Co the Pacific a listance as groat as from Cin cinnati to New York together with the vast local as welt as through traffic which must necessa.-ilv come over them, pre cludes ail poasioility of them becoming rivals, each having full scope to work out and accomplish the object of its creation the development of the resource of our common country . therefore. Unsolved, That this Chamber heartily indorse the proposition to afford lilwral aid to the (Southern Pacific railroad, by such donations of public lands lying along the proposed route as may be necessary to secure the early completion of said road ; provided, that the land so donated shall, at all times, be subject to purchase bv actual settlers at a prioe not to exceed the tiovernuieut prioe of land adjoining. KOHKRTHOSBA, SAMCEL DAVIS, JR., ADOLPH W. WOOD, B. W. WAS HON, ABNKR L. KHAZKK. Committee. These resolutions were adopted, and ordered to be delivered over to the Board of Officers, to be suitably pre pared and forwantud to the Ohio re presentatives in Congress. It is pleas ing to see far-sighted business men overcoming all sectional prejudices, and hxiking with a large-hearted view to the interests common to all sec tions. The more we have action on that principle, the more shall we have local and individual prosperity. Bkd Cloud, the old Sioux Chief who has been at Washington nego tiating for protection and peace for his tribe, seems not to have understood well the character of men with whom he was dealing. It is the practice of some miserly men who understand that thing well to go dressed iu a rag ged and seedy fashion and to profess great poverty for the purpose of pro tection to their hoard of liKTe, of which they have a great abundance. But lied Cloud, familiar only with the honesty of his own race, concealed nothing of that kind, and frankly let slip that in the territory be claimed there were two " mounds," hills or mountains of silver, as his utterance miirht be differently translated. One of them was " Big Horn Mountain," containing silver and other precious metak which he begged his "Great Father" to secure to his tribe for its future support. He said his tribe was " poor and unarmed, and utterly at the mercy of the whites," and urged that as his reason. Alas for the old man, no sooner were his words uttered than the telegraph flashed them to the whole Yankee nation, and in two days a host of speculators sprang up, companies were formed to prospect, and he was interviewed by all the "enterprising" members of Congress at once. Ail the laws Congress can pass, and all the troops Grant can span , will be insuificient to protect him after this. His mines; have gone up- Govebnob Holden, of North Carolina, has hunted up throughout the State every instance of outrage he could And, and paraded it for po litical eflect. He has issued his proc lamation, offering $o0U each for the capture of the whole Ku-Klux Klan. All the crimes committed in North Carolina are political, of course done by tbe Ku-K.lu.v-the North Carolina loyalists never commit any crimes all are committed by rebels and Dem ocrats. Tho Governor has arrayed the formidable list of eleven murders and other crimes, done by as many hundred Ku-Klux, who are all to be captured at $600 per head, and stern justice dealt oat to them. But we predict that the effort will prove a failure, because tbe Governor is on tbe wrong track. If he would look in his own household for the rascals, we think he would likely be more successful than in looking after mythi cal Ku-Klux, in part, it may be, on account of mythical crimes. A Baltimore correspondent says: " In the House, Mr. Stokes introduced a bill granting general amnesty, with a proviso that the ironclad oath afcoedd Hot be exacted. Tbe bill was rejected by the decided vote of 1 11 to ($9, which shows that no general am nesty bill is to be expected from tbe present Congress." Thi: ?ijr York Sun says: "Hie :jppressjrjri of Keniank m in Canadis child's fkny as compared with the ex tinction of that international epidemic in England. Liverpool, like New York, contains a Vast ribmber of poor and lively Irish, and their condition is not such as to iiiake.Uiem love t tie British dispensation.' It is in London, however, that Irish iiusery is most appalling The small' streets and al leys between Holborn and the Strand teem with Irish paupers, many of whom are in the most abject state of destitution. "Nothing indeed is more hideous and heartrending, am ill all the terrors of London pauperism, than the aspect of the Irish huddled together in the fetid alleys and hovels that cluster around Holborn. Naked children covered with dirt, haggard women with blank despair written upon their faces, stupefied looking men, clothed in rags and reeling with drnkenneas, are thrown together pell-mell In these abodes of misery, and supply a con tingent of desperadoes such as may weB strike the West-end Londoners with dismay. Much is the fearful retribution of a civilization which aims to accumulate property in a few hands, and reduces Ue masses to a state of pauperism of which the poor Irish in London form the fag end. "Fenianism is regarded in England as a political evil origic&ting with the Irish in America; but in reality it gathers its most fearfnlintenaity from the social condition of the Irish in England and in Ireland. Moreover, it threatens to increase and not di minish in force as time rolls on and makes that condition more and more desperate and revolting." ALABAMA. Rains are re portal as general in the State.

The Deuiopolia h'xMment says the crop prospects of Marengo are very obearing o far as tho collou goes, but that it is really distressing to see tho small amount of com planted in Ihe oounty this year. The annual report oi the iusane Asylum st T-.i-k t states, that of the iuuiales, oiKhieen were sem there uv wbiskv, sev enteen bv religious excitement, nineteen by political excitement, and one by to bacco. The granil inry of l'ickmis county re ported the boud of tbe Superintendent of Education worthless, aud that in their opinion the intemperate habits of that officer disqualify him for so responsible a position. The crop reports from almost all parts of the State are satisfactory. Tbe cater pillar baa, however, made its appearance in Lowudes county. Around Wilcox the crops have been seriously injured by the drouth. Colonel J. J.

Tbe Montgomery Journal says that the section of country south of that city was visited by a fearful storm of hail and wind on Wednesday afternoon. In many plaoaa the fencea were completely de molished for hundreds of yards. Trees and houses were blown down, stock killed, and the crops, of courts, seriously injured, Tbe Montgomery and Mobile Railroad Company, at a recent meeting of the stockholders, elected the following Board of Directors: C.

The wstersnpply is an important ques tion in Atlanta, Georgia, j ust now. The crops throughout North Carolina have suffered great injury by recent heavy rains.

The Rome Daily says: "A lot of new wheat, the first of the season, was brought np by the Btowah from the plantation of Mr. joa. Blackmore, of Cherokee oounty, Alabama. It was sold to J. J. Cohen for $1 75 per bushel." Dr. Bard's printing material has ar rived in Atlanta, aud tho True Georgian will be issued at an earlier day than was anticipated. The Doctor will soon enter the ring, and then we'll see the fur fly. It seems that W. P. M. Gilbert, post master at Tnskegee, Ala., was- the Insti gator of the late riot. He but was pursued and arrested, and afterward re leased on condition of lead ing tbe State. A citizen of McCraoken county has in vented a stump ex i racier, which will cost only $8 or flu. Another citizen has in vented a process to iiikii shot out of cold lead in a very quick time and at very small cost. Crop accounts from Missouri are ex tremely favorable. In some portions ot tbe State tbe farms, gardens and orchards are from ten to fifteen days in advance of any season for several years, while tbe oorn is up and ready for th cultivator. Wheat and oats promise well. The Marlin (Texas) Pioneer learns from a gentleman who recently interviewed tbe Governor of Toxas at Austin, that he determined to signalize his administra tion by tho appointment of a pure and able Judiciary. The Uoreioana Observer also had an article to the same effect, based on information, leceived from are cent visitor to the capital. Charlotte papers announce that Mr. E. r. Dickinson, of New York, has taken the entire tjontract for thecoustructlon of the Air Line railroad from Atlanta to Char lotte, C, and proposes to let sutr-con-traots for sections to parties along tbe line of the road. He advertises for proposals for the grading, masoury and bridging of sixty miles of the road extending from Charlotte to Spartanburg, on which work will be commenced Immediately. The Greensboro iJcuconJkj-s: " General Forrest was on a visit to wreeusboro last week, looking after the interests of his road. He expresaea theconfident opinion thai tbe road will be completed to this place by the hrst ot September at farthest. And ho is mute sanguine that he cau have it completed from Selma to Colum bus, Miss., by the first of March next. He aays that be w ill soon have at least live hundred bands on this end of the lino, which will cause the work to pro gress very rapidly," The Batesville (Ark.) 7'te says that Capt. Cobb, engineer of the Memphis aud Kansas City railroad, was in the city sev eral days during tbe past aud present week. He examined Hie route between Jacksonporl and this place, and was highly pleased with the topography ot tbe country. He says a road can be built be tween these two points at much lesa cost than is generally supposed by persons un familiar with the country. Healsoexam iued the rente betw en Batesville and La Crosse, aud expressed like gratitioatiott at the feasibility of the route. A Texas correspondent says that a gaug-plow from the Indian "ixsrde'r, in Wise county, invented, patented aud wrought by Texans on the froutier, had traveled on its own wbuels three hundred miles to the Houston Fair to bear away tbe blue ribbon from the New York and Ohio contestants. "With bois d'arc spokes and felloes, and with mesquite axle and hubs, that never crack or con tract or rpt from exposure, these frontier plows and gangs come with unpolished shares and mould-boards to stand up square before the best results of mechani cal skill, however sustained by paint and polish." Thelrefusal of Governor Warmouth, of Louisiana, to eign the bill creating Kel- loiru's ureal levee oorporation, the New '.-mans JfalleJan says, "will cause the de feat of Senator Kullogg's bill in the United States Senate, authorising a loan ol ilo.- 000,000 to this company aud otherwise contributing to tbe building aud main tenance of the levees in the Mississippi Valley. All of these immease advantages to the people of our State are, bowever, secondary in importauoe to the pecuniary interests ol the so-called (jovernor oi tms State and a few of his favoreaV pets." Gov ernor Alcorn said iu a sneech, a few days ago, that Warmodth never would sign Kellogg'g corporation uiu. Warmouth sucoeeded in lining his own pockets at tne expense oi toe people oi Louisiana. But then it must be remem bered that he is "loyal" to the Govern ment, or, at least, to the Kadical party ; and be would lose standing In his party if ho did not prove himself a success as a thief and scoundrel, and the greater thief and villain be proves himself to be. the higher honors will be ooiiferred on him by his Radical brelhreu. The principal idical platform now-a-davs. or at least one of their cardinal principles or articles of faith Is, to rob the public whenever an opportunity presents itself. Radical members of Slate legislatures uiual imitate tbe example set bv Kadical members of Congress who accept bribes. sell their votes to giveaway millions of acres of the public lauds, reversing the former theory, una pract icing the new one, "lands for monopolies" and not "lands for tbe landless."
