JB7X Main "'uvERMiUtE, Oeu'l Bopt. The interest manifested by tbe mer chants of Mobile and Memphis in a direct railroad botween tbe two cities is a cheering sign . This baa been a favorite project with oar people for some years; put onr Mobile friends have never before regarded it with kindness. That ther do so now, is an evidence that they now look upon Memphis an the most' important Kiint on tbe Mississippi for obtaining their fool supplies, and for inaugurating toommtree between tbe millions of this ricb vall-v and tbe Oulf islands. Mobile or Mississippi City is the Gulf door, open ing ap to Memphis a tradeof wbioh Lieut. Msurv has said so ranch, and which would add another cbaplet to ber commercial grown. Any map will show that an air line from Memphis to Mobile wonld leave Grenada but a few miles ou the west, and Meridian but a few on the east of it. There is, therefore, bat one link to be built that irom Grenada to Meridian; anleas it be deemed best to strike direct Irom Grenada to Mobile, so as altogether to ignore, the monopoly of the Mo bile and Ohio railroad. At the request of Col. Frank White, I ran tbe line from Grenada to Meridian, in the winter of lbfl8 9, and fuund the route an excel lent one. The distance is abot 124 miles, tbe line passing through soiue uvo or six counties, that produced 90 (100 bales of cotton, and an abundance of food, in 1800. If thai link were built, Memphis would be nearer to Mobile and tbe Gulf than she is to Knoxville; and St. Louis would be nearer to Mobile and the Gulf than she is to Pittsbcrg. Memphis is at the foot of tbe grain region, she is deeply inter ested in tbe growth of every town and diatrict south of her which may need sup plies of food ; for It seems our Southern planters will never learn the necessity ol raising these. And if they nul buy them, then let Memphis supply them by drawing ou the great grain regions norlu of her. Memphis is also at the bead of the cotton region of tbe South ; and it is her interest to see cotton factories multi plying north ot the Ohio river. Thirty years ago, but little more than 10,000 bales of cotton were annually manufactured in the Ohio valley, or west of Pittsburg. Now, tbe amount exceeds 100,000 bales. Cotton is tbe chief article ot ber com merce. It has been and in yet tbe mfuruet lnab attracts to Memphis tbe attention of this country and Europe. It is what has built her up. It is ber supremacy and neither manufactories nor anything else can be substituted for it. Dozens of cities north of her can and will forever defy her in manufactories. They have population, food and fuel. But they have no cotton. Neither St. Louis, Louisville or Cincinnati can present to tbe manu facturing or speculating world any claims as a cotton market. Memphis has this supremacy, and it is her policy to retain it. To do Ibis, she must cultivate still more intimate relations with the cotton regions around ber, but especially South and West. Tbe most important of these lies between tbe Mississippi river on the west, tbe Mobile road on the east, and the Vicksburg and Meridian road on the sooth an area of about 100 by 200 miles and containing about twelve milliim acres, capable of producing an abundant supply of lood, and two million bales of couou annually. These are her resources for cotton, and she should do all she can to encourage the development of them aud then direct tbe current of trtde to ber streets. In twenty-five years more this cotton belt will have its full supply of cotton labor: ' for tbe adult negroes of Marvlau i, irginia, the t arolinas and Georgia, are gradually seeking those regions which psy best. The more cotton produoed south of us, and the more avenues we hav to that region, tbe more cotton we shall get ; and this will but en large tbe magnet we now bold for all the ootton spinning world. But there is yet another interest in all this. Every cotton factory built up in tbe Ohio Valley moans additional purchasers of Memphis cotton. Lvery lactory south of us buys cot ton arounc it. tv-rv one north of us buys cotton al Memphis or from some other Southern point. It is evi dently our oUey, if possible, to transfer New England factories to the Ohio valley, and let Me 11 phis be tbe point where a million bales can be bought for their looms and spindles. Tbe more Manchester.-! we have north of us, tbe greater our Liverpool. When the Ohio valley will annuslly need a half million bales, and can find them at Memphis, the advanta ges resulting will be lelt by the whole plauting community around us; for, tbe large markets govern prices. The small factories throughout the country never create any but a local demand for cotton, and that demand is easUy and promptly supplied ofton by a few tawns'iips. The foreign demand tbe demand which (times from countries that do not produce, hut taal contume the great bulk of the crop, can be supplied only at great eoUontrade centers, and every planter withiu 200 miles of Memphis is thus interested in her becoming one of these. Cotton is yet "King of Commerce," and will be so as long as it is the fabric which clothes four-flths of tbe human race, and which, by mschinery, can be converted into so many different utilities. Let Memphis do all she can in buildiug up manufactures; but let ber look to her cotton laurels as richer than any others. Mobile, Savannah, New Orleans, are all seeking the trade of that rich region south of us. If Memphis can obtain it, she will bring to ber tbe the weslthy buyers of the North and East in still larger num bers. You know I have always oeiievod in "( n ventious. Commercial ones nev er do anything but good. Tbey awaken ihougut, suggest enterprise and arouse energies. See wbst they have done, dur ing the past two years, in di recting public attention to Norfolk, and stimulating the energies of her Ma sluggard people! See whit tbey have done for Mempbis iu obtaining n einpnatic lnuomeuieul 01 a Southern Pacific railroad, not only from evert Southern State, but aiso from tbe two leading cities of the Ohio Vslley. No one will question the influence which 'his expression of opiuion is exerting on Con gress, radical as it is. Let us, therefore, hsve s rsiiioad convention here in No vember. Every railroad leading into Memphis everv one projected as a Mem phis road, whether as sn independent or a branch line is interested in building up our city; for tbe growth of Memphis priwtippoees tne improvement 01 the sur rounding country. Let our railroads and steamers proclaim that railroad delegates, with proper credentials as such, will be passed tree, coming and going. The whole country in every State around us is moving upon the subject of railroads as the main levees of prosperity,' and if Memphis will only do what ber interests demand, she can gather here, in Novem ber next, an assemblage of thinking, practical, energstie men from the sur rounding states, who will appreciate oar advantages, and wbo will return boa.e earnestly determined to arouse their peo ple to tbe importance of the speedy con struction of lines which will ponr million-, of wealth into our s' rests. We may all write and talk to each other about these things for years, but all this will not help Memphis unless we can contnce sections not now trading here that it is fAetr i teresl as wsll as ohm to do so. Uonvea tions will do this. Ijet m have one in November. J. T. TREZEVANT. June 30, 1870. P. S. I propose to say something, soon. about " Railroad Rings;" and there is grot'nd to believe that Memphis has beeD sadly over-reached by one. Did you ever bear ol roads being leased, or the con tract of them obtained in order to yrewmt their extension and connection with other and rival lines T Did it ever occur to you : bat charters are st.inetim.es aouelit aud obtained to prevent tbs construction of roads, and thus maintain monopoly?

FORT PICKERING PRO'ERTY HOLDERS Editors Appeal: Will you allow us, through the columns of vour valuable journal, to make a few suggestions to the parties interested in the above proneny. A proportionately few of those owning lots in the fort nave formed themselves into an association for tho purpose of in vestigating the tax aale of lstM, and take some action to get relief for the sufferers, thereby giving tbe present holders a clear title, and avoiding all future suits which may arise as everv one U aware, it is a great undertaking to search out a title to proierty in that section. A committee of five reliable gentlemen was appoint ed to wait on parties interested, for the purpose of collecliDg lunds to ilelrnv the expenses which must accrue in mstters of this kind. After two davs' assiduous labor, tbe committee submitted their re port, which would have made a less reso lute set of men feel discouraged and sl- most willing to give over the matter. But, on tbe contrary, we have commenced this move in tbe belief that the end can be attained without an appeal to the courts, and at much less expense, aud are determined to cany it through. We are confident that it is only necessary to lay this matter before the authorities at Washington, to hive ll righted. Let ev ery man go to Assembly Hall, on Tues day night, and hear and aee for hiinselt. This is no speculation, but a nititnal co partnership, giving the poor man a large benefit at small expense. If this matter is let to rest, it will cul minate in serious trouble and expense to all. PICKERING. It Organic Law Candidate aaa People Will Iliad.

Another mad dog was shot by the po lice yesterday burning. Cleaning and Dyeing to perfection, at Hollenberg's, 262 Second street. 'Squire Kiernan seems to monopolize most of tbe magistrate's business now done in the city. The air was ablaze with rockets last evening, sent up from the bluff to wel come the coming racers. Ho! all ye wbo hanger and are athirst, go out to the riarbeutiD aud bran dance al Kaleigh Springs to-morrow. Six card pictures for fifty cents. Pho tographs, $1 per dozen, at Armstrong's Gem Gallery, 211 Main street. Grace Church, on Hernando street, will be brilliantly illuminated with gas at evening service this evening. The excitement about the great race was unabated yesterday indeed it was increased, and grows stronger every hour. The Recorder disposed of tweuty siven cases yesterday morning. One hun dred dollars were assessed and twenty collected. Business is falling off. Yesterday was much cooler than the two previous days. The thermometer at 7 o'clock stood at 76, and at 12 m. 87 Fahr. The barometer was at 2Rti inches. We regret to learn that our confrere, Mr. Fred Brenuan, local editor of the A wUanche, has been ill for several days. We wish him a speedy recovery, and re turn to duty. Mr. W. H. Bates, tbe delegate to the Interatlonal Typographical I'nion from Memphis, returned to the city day before yesterday. His trip benefited bis health very much, and he looks as hearty as of old. "Squire Kiernan yesterday issued the lollowing warrants for assault and bat tery: Jane Nelson vs. Win. Jones; Bill Stealem va. Geo. Kose, and Barney Glaa ser vs. Wni. Trigge. All are to be heard Tuesday. Jack Dyer (colored), suspected of be ing the party who killed a negro in Mississippi a low weeks ago, was arrested yesterday evening by detective Mat. Shelby, and lodged in tho first district statiou-hoase. We aro glad to be able to record a con tinued improvement in tbs condition of Mr. James Brizzolara. He has had, so fsr, little or no fever, and it is hoped by bis surgeon and friends that he will be able to be out in a few days. We call attention to the announce ment of Capt. John A. Onley, who is a candidate for Probate Judge ot Shelby county. Capt. Onley is a lawyer of onf city, who has won for himself a repu -n-tioo enjoyed by few of the younger mem bers of the bar. The late picnics have tended ie con vince those engaged in getting them up, tho truth of the old sayiug, " Man pro poses aud God disposes." There have been but two or throe picnics this season which were not interrupted in some man ner by the weather. We noticed a team yesterday evening on Main street provided with the newly invented parasol to keep tbe sun off IBs horses' heads. It worked to a charm, and the spanking rair of blood-bays went down Main street the admired of all ad mirers. We learn that tbe Memphis snd Charleston railroad has made arrange ments to carry visitors to the Rant Ten nessee aud Virginia Springs, and return for one fare the rouud trip in other words, at half price. For further particu lars, appHcstion should be made st the office of Uie road, or st the depot. Mr. Robson, contractor on the Little Rock railroad, is after the aketch-writer of the Avalanche w.th a sharp stick. He hag a salty card iu the Sitn of yesterday morning, in which be denounces the so called description of the road, as given in the Avalanche of Friday, a tissue of un truths from beginning to end. The crowds around the newspaper aud telegraph officea last night reminded one of the scenes around tho cilices dur ing the war, when a great battle was pending or being fought. The anxiety to learn the news was as great, and tbe fe verish excitement was even greater than when thousands of human lives depeuded ou the issue. The following marriage certificates were returned to the office of the County Clerk last week: Conrad Nutzel and Miss Rosins Hemmerlv, Rudolph Diedricb and Mias Annie Stanton, S. W. Mallisand Miss Maggie Anderson, E. M. Watson and Miss Caroline H:ys, Alfred H. White aud Mias Lou Simmons, James M. Etche varue and Miss Sarah Leiore. A correspondent senda na the follow ing, which we fully indorse and we know that Gaston does the same: "We would most respectfully call the atten tion of gentlemen and others bringing dogs into a first-class restaurant, to the iaci mat 11 is not only a great nuisance to boarders, but a broach of etiouette. which display an v thins: but wood hrMxlin This much from one who daily suffers "wis uv annoyance. To-morrow, July the fourth, is tbe festival of the translation of St, Martin. In European countries, and aaiomr sns of the coast Creole families, this day is supposed to indicate tbe weather for "the remainuer 01 tne month. ir rain fall on that day, it will do so (so says the super- stitious) for the ensuing three weeks. If it be dry, dry weather will prev I, and the grain crops will be good. Let u pray for a dry day to-morrow. For several years it hag been cus tomary for the Orphan Asylum of St. Peter'a to have a picnic on the Fourth of July. Tbe custom will be kept up this year, and a grand picnic will be given for tb .ir uenenl at James' Park to-morrow. E ery friend of the orphan will con- t ibute their mite to tbe fund. All kinds 1 1 rational amusements will be furnished, and refreshments will he fog sale on tbe grounds. The excitement over tbe great rarf between tbe Lee aud Natchez Is some thing wonderful. Nobody ever saw tbe likeofit. Dense crowds obstructed tbe banquettes around the Western Union Telegraph Company's office from three o'clock till dark yesterday evening, and a reporter was regarded as legitimate prey by any and everybody. A full ac count of the race will be fonnd else where. -We learn that an examination into the charges against Pclicernsh Sullivan has been ordered by the t: -d of Police. The report of the outrage perpetrated by him, aa given in tbe Appeal yesterday morn ing, came to us from one of tbe parties whom he searched a gentleman who has been connected with the A pi-la l ando.h' er newspapers ia the city for years past. We sincerely hop) that tbe Board will promptly order his discharge. The Tribune, of Jackson, Tennessee, says of tho Sodality Band: "This crack band of Mempbians arrived in our city last Sunday. They had been announced and came to give a concert, with tbe as sistance of the young: ladiesof the institu tion, for tbe benefit of tbe Academy of tbe Immaculate Conception, on Monday nlstht. They are tine looking specimens of the genua homo, and we are not sur prised that Memphis should be proud of them. They will, individually and col lectively please accept oar thanks for the hot or of a serenade Monday evening. Thi thievish propensities of negroes are not, ss asserted by Radical philan thropists, " tbe natural result of elavery," but are inherited, innate, bred ia the bone. Not long ago " The Society for the Evangelization of Africa " invited an old salt who bad trade! for many years on the slave coast to meet a committee and give them some information touching tbe habits and religion of the African races. Among numerous other equally stupid questions, he was asked it the subjects of the King of Oabomey kept Sunday. "Keep ill" he replied, "I reckon they do, and everything else they can get their d d thieving bauds on." As the hot season is fully upon us. the following directions for tbe treatment of sunstroke cases will be round of value: First Apply ice or ice-cold water to the top of the bead, and if the burning is felt at tbe base o the skull apply cold water there, taking care not to wet the back. Second Give to drink (hot if possible) cayenne pepper or ginger stirred into water, and as strong as the pationt can take H. (Fluid "essence of Jamaica gin ger" is excellent for this purpose, and as a preventive!. Third Quickly wrap the body in a blauket or other warm cover ing,' for life depends upon restoring the natural circulation and stimulatiug free perspiration. Fourth Do not allow the sun's rays to touch the patient's head for at least twenty-four hours. The Jackson Tribune of yesterday says that five prisoners, all colored, we believe, were taken from their cells by Sheriff May and an assistant oa Monday morning last, for purposes of necessity, and as soon as they reached- tho yard they broke from the guard and Had in the di rection of the river bottom. Pursuit was made, and only two were overtaken and captured, one being slightly wounded by a shot from one of the pursuers, and safely returned to their quarters. Tbe three not taken r.ro still at large. No blame can attach to the jailer as wa are informed. The names of those escaping weshave not learned. They were tried at tbe present term of tbe Supreme Court, and two of them sentenced to the peni tentiary. A Memphis glider and engraver has partially perfected a discovery which wiU revolutionise the whole business of pic ture making by photographic processes. He transfers to a steel plate, or an in the test we saw made, to the polished surface of a section of a hand-aaw, a perfect pic ture of the object placed before the cam ara, and when the acids used are washed away, there is an engraved photograph left on the steel, from which impressions may be multiplied in ink as from an en graved plate. The acid does tbe engrav er's work, and light itself draws the lines. Curiously enough, though tbe graver and gilder, a most ingenious mechanic of this city, has been steadily toiling to perleut his discovery for many months, it hap pens that even now it is announced that one C, J. Walmberg, of Stockholm, baa ur .de at the same time precisely the same ox . 111.. ry discovery. A city correspondent writes: "Pri mary meetings of tbe wards of the city will be held on the loth inst., preparatory to a convention to be held n the 18:h inst., to nominate candidttes for county officers. It is rumored that there are al ready ticketa prepared fur the different wards in the interest cf certain candi dates, and indications have been given to parlies in the different wards, that tbey will be voted for as delegates to the con vention, provided they will support cer tain candidates for nominations. If this be so, wbv hold a convention at all? Why not let the candidates, who g-.-t a majority of tbe delegates on their side, be declared the candidates at onoe, in stead of making it a further farce by holding a convention to legalize the trickery? It is to be hoped that the dele gates to the convention will spurn the claims of any man who attempts to manipulate, and secure strength bv any such legerdemain. X." Charles Nelson, a big burly negro, who weighs thirteen atone, if he weighs an ounce, was up oefore the Recorder yesterday morning for unmercifully whipping his vife and resisting the officer who interfered and arrested him. Officer J. M. Nuttal, a small but determined man, swore that on Friday evening, when on South street, near the graveyard, he heard a tremendous fuss going on ia Nelson's yard, and on going to see what was going on, found the big brute beating his wife ferociously. On ordering him to desist, Nelson refused to do so, and abused him (the officer), who then determined to arrest bim. This Nelson positively swore couldn't be doue by him or suy other d -d policeman, drawing an ax as he said so. This got Nattall'a spunk up, and he went for Nelson, ax and all, with his club. He had to knock tbe black ruffian down three times before be surrendered. Nut tall then took bim to the station in spite of s mob of three or four hundred negroes who had assembled during the tight, and showed signs of sympathy for tLe pris oner. The Recorder stuck a heavy fine to Nelson, and sent him back to his ceil to cool off. A very singular incident occurred at Marion, Ark., on Friday, at the conclu sion of the great contested will esse of Lackland against Joues, which has been banging in tae courts for over thirteen years. It was argued by Judge K. M. Verger, Col. 1. union Hay nee and Colore! Lyle; the Jrtdge charged tbe jury, sod it retired. After a short absence the jury returned and rendered a verdict for the defendant (sustaining the will). Upon the announcement being made by the fore man.Judge Adams, for the prosecutor, de manded that the jury should be ; -oiled, and it was accordingly so ordered. Three names had been called, and tbe question, "Is this your verdict?" addressed to tbe fourth a man named Mitchell but be fore he could reply he ottered a keen, sharp scream, as if in mortal agony, and dropped apparently lifeless. He was quickly picked up, brought to tbe fresh Ur, and old water used on httn profusely, but it was some time before he began to show signs of returning life and con sciousness. At he last accounts be was still nnable to speak, aud the great will case of Lackland BS, Joues is still in abey ance. The doctors pronounce his disease apoplexy. If he dies before answering tbe question the whole case will have to be tried over again. The Grenada Sentinel, Gus Signaigo's paper, comes to us this week enlarged to twice its old size, snd converted from a folio to s quarto form. The whole ap pearance of the Sentinel indicates deserved prosperity, and we congratulate friend Gus on bis success. By the way Gus tells a story on bimseif and his paper, which is too good to be lost. Not long ago an enterprising chap, "way ap North,", happened to pick up a copy of the Senti nel which had strayed into that inhos pitable region, and soon became inter ested in Gus' glowing descriptions of Grenada. Tbe looks of the paper In dicated thrift, and judging Irom what he read, mat urensrt most be a second edi tion of tbe great city of Boahdil, the cbap aforesaid immediately determined to emigrate thitber. One fine morning he walked into Gus' sanctum, and without introducing himself be remarked very deliberately to Ons, (who was at work writing a "History of a Haunted Chim ney" the only local item that be had for that week 's Sentinel), "i aindownon you, air, and your paper vou've swindled me!" Gus, a little surprised, answered that he didn't know how that could be, as he had never seen the gentleman be fore. "Well, I am," was tbe reply, "and 111 tell you why. I saw one of your pa pers, up North, and I thought that Gre nada must be a h 11 of a place. And so It is (contemptnoualT). Why, tbe paper is bigger than the whole d d village." Having; thus delivered himself, he stalked out, evidently much relieved. SINGULAR DEVELOPMENTS IN THE DRY GOODS TRADE.

The Race--Treatises Excitemat--Fst Tiaw-Tae R. E. Lee Ahesd G3 Mioutfrs at lata Port-A altitude of People. Nothing was thought of to-day except the great race between the K. E. Lee and the Natchez, and business ot all kinds was almost suspended. Whai is tbe latest news? was asked by at 1 ry one you met. Tbe first news after the two rival packets left Vieksbure was the following dispatch to the At-bal, re ceived early in the morning: V icKSBCBO, July i, 10;l a.m. Editorr Appeal: The Robert E. Lee paaaed foot of Crawford street ai ; ia evening, and the Natchez at 5 :5.t. Hot h steamers took two barges of coal at this point. Captain Cannon say the Lee is sixteen minutes ahead but Captain Leathers says she is but fuuriecn niinui' s ahead. At a point i-ppjsite Vicksburir tbe Lee was thirty minutes ahead. The Natchez landed at Grand Gulf, but the Lee did not. There is great exci"e-uient here, and large amounts of money changeu hands VICKSBCRG. Then followed some hours of anxiety, when the dispatch which follows was re ceived: VirKSBTRO, July 2, 2 p.m. The Pargoud brings tbe sews :bat the Lee was 45 minutes ahead at Lake W -innrton. luO miles above thia ci'.y. The Natchez passed; tbe same point, moving very fast. IXUTI", In a few minutes Messrs. Brown Jones, who had com rated to eoai both vessels on their arrival here, received the lollowing telegram: VirgsBCRd, 2 p.m. Brown A Jones, Mempbis: Have coal lists ready for Lee at 7 o'clock. Don't want any cannel coal. J. W. TO BIN, Steamer Krauk Pargou I. Right here we will state that Captain John Christy, for many years engine r with Captain Leathers, arrived in the ci j yesterday morning to have coal tla.s pre pared for the Natchez. He stated that tbe Natchez would have to land a. Green ville and other points to put off passen gers. Tbe Pargoud supplied the Lee wii.li pine knots too miies above Vicksburg. while the Natchez had no consort to sup ply her, ss has been previously stated. No further news was received from the boaMS for several hours. A large crowd assembled around the telet;r (h office a', at twop.m.. and all were anxious to hear from Helena. A dbpatch purporting to be a special to the Evening fst lger, dated 2:S0 p.m., stating that smoke wis seen below, supposed to be that of tne Lee, turned out to be a myth, aa a dispatch from Helena dated an boor later, reported no smoke iu sight. At this time 1 3-jtu pin. the excitement was at fever heat, when upon the bulletin board a notice appeared saying that tbe line was nog working to Helens. This was anything; but agree able news to those in waiting. Many do dared it to be a fraud, wbue some said tbe friends of the Lee had tampered w ith the wires, and others were equally san guine that the partisans of tb nTatehea had cut the electric current. About six p.m. the following, however, wits re ceived: Hbxwha, July 2, 1870. The R E Lee passed up st 4:30 and Natchez at B:2-4, The Natchez claims to have broke a pamp last night and had to Uy up M minutes in consequeuce. This was ths last news received by tel egraph snd the whole city prepared 10 visit the Bluff to witness the) arrival af the two great champions. As early as S o'clock s living tide commenced moving toward the landing, and toy 10 p.m. at least 'JU.UU0 persons had congregated upon the binds, the galleries aad house lops fronting upon the river. At about twenty minutes past It) o'clock the cry arose, "There she eonins!'' ami amid the roar of cannon and ansae bonfires the Thompson Dean came sailing into port. The disappointment. bowe : . was of short duration, for a few minutes before II o'clock the Lee rounded the point below tbe city, and landed at the St. Louis whaf beat at 11:10 amid cheers and the wildest excitement. She lost one minute at the landing, aad probably two more in making her baigeo fast in mid stream. The Natchez roundest the Ar kansas point fully an boor after tbe de parture of the Lee, and touched bereoal data at 12:13, being then one Basse and three minutes behind the Lea. She loot several minutes hfter making her bur,- -fast. The time made hy the Lee and Natchez from New Orleans to Memphis is as follows: Left Lee.
