THE MEM PHIS DAILY APPEAL- MONDAY, J A X LTA UY 9, 1871.
(iMPfilS AiPEAL OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE CITV. MONDAY MORNING, JAN. 9. 1871 Mb. Bon Mat had inserted the tirst pvt ol his iaUt new story in every newspaper of value in the United states, and, we believe, in some ol the Canada papers, at an expense of many thousands of dollars. But it ptyt. Here is an example set to men of business. Mr. lijnner, a newspa¬ per man himself, spends more money l jr advertising than any other indi¬ vidual in the country. He knows taat money so spent is invested at 100 par cent, interest. Ukant is counting of his job, and he find mal canvass of the Sei there are thirty-seven .ire opposed to the pr noses in favor i that an m - :ate "hows that Senators who ject. The ben ate reaolutions for the appointment ol a commission, which are pending u the House, were considered by the Committee on Foreign affairs of that body, and did not receive the sup¬ port that was expected. Another meeting will be held to finally decide it, and the probability is that a bare majority of the Committee will re¬ port in their favor. The annexation¬ ists are confident of success. In the House the friends ol Cuba intend to move to amend the Senate resolution so as to propose that the San Domin¬ go commissioners shall inquire whether any e jvernmeut other than I . : oiSpainexists in Cuba, and it so, report ujon its present state and con¬ dition, the character and extent of the country ovor which it exerci-er- jurisdiction, the number of its milita¬ ry and naval forces, etc., and all other information that may be deemed com¬ petent or desirable with reference to recognition of the independence of Cuba by the L'nited States. tie propriety of reconstructing Geor- g a for the fourth time. These threats hive ceased to produce an alarm among the jeople. The Georgia Constitutionalist thus bids defiance to H id icaiism : "The Journal can era ve amnesty for us as much as it pleases, but the South has passed the point of jlicitation and really cares nothing one way or the other on this subject, ludeed, since persecution has borne s-irh splendid fruits, we rather prefer that the bitter-enders should keep up their hyena howl to the last chap¬ ter, where all tuc-h beastly things will be consigned to a commission of mnacy. A refusal of amnesty does the South no harm. A oonces- l n ot it will do Radicalism no espe- c ti gov-!. Sugar-plums that would have been very good five Christmasas ago have grown worm-eaten and nau- axi now. We have faith in our people, our State, our children and our Gd. What more do we want, and what can Congress yield us to off- aet this reliance?" It is impossible to make Georgia a Radical State. Tae Democrat have, heretofore, de¬ feated Grant's administration, the Radical State Government, Wimpy, ."5aui Hard and the I uited States troops, and they can do so again. A few days slate a colored man ol prominence aud great good sense com¬ plained to us that the press of Mem¬ phis had failed to do Jnstice to his race. Said he, "Every thing the white people do is noticed and favored by you editors ; but our (schools, our teachers, our churches, our barbecues, our balls, are not noticed or encour¬ aged." This is a singular complaint to come from a people who have ar¬ rayed themselves against the whites. We had rather help than harm the negro. We will give the use of our columns to any laudable enterprise having for its object the advancement of the colored race. But we do this as a humanitarian and a philanthro¬ pist, and not because we are under any obligations to a people who on every -fusion hurl themselves in a solid body against the whites. If an election were held to-morrow the negro would vote solid against the wishes and interests of the white peo¬ ple of Memphis; and after doing this he complains that the publi: press does not encourage his " schools, his teachers, his churches, his barbecues, his balls, and his processions." If the negro looks to carpet -baggers, ad¬ venturers and Radical ofBee-seekers for his politics, he should also look to the same source for help in ail his enterprises and the industries of life. The negro clings to the Radical papers. He believes all their falsehoods, and be should expect puming of his bails and barbecues, processions, churches aud schools, only Irom the papers he supports. The press of Memphis has shown, in column after column, that the two races should not be enemies; that our interests are identical, and our des¬ tiny one and the same ; yet, while the negro was enjoying the right of fran¬ chise, he marches up to the polls, votes against his employer, and for strangers who come here and labor to keep the whites disfranchised, not for the benefit of the negro, but in order that they may get ail the offices, and propose to remain only so long as they can retain these offices. The two races of the South are arrayed against each other. The negro has formed a " Black Man's Party;" and this necessarily forces the " White Man's Party." This thing should not be; but it is so, and we see no way to remedy it unless the white man joins the " Black Man's Party," which is by no means probable. Whenever the negro ceases to array himself against the whites, he will find the press of the South, conducted by white men, disposed to encourage every enterprise calculated to pro¬ mote the prosperity and happiness of the negro. Editors are magnanimous, but they are not possessed of that Christian meekness which can love a black man, while it is the delight and pleasure of his lite to oppose the white man. As will be seen from the extracts below, the New York Tribune and the Cincinnati Enquirer lash with jikt aad merciless severity the political cow-boys, called Independents. The profession of independent journalism is a deceit, a ;ham and a fraud. The editor who it continually prating about his imroacuiate purity; who, like a proud Pharisee, wraps his man¬ tle of self-piety around him and thanks God that he is independent, and not corrupt like the political pub¬ licans, should be watched. If you want to find a bigoted, sell-con¬ ceited partizan, always look among those who chatter about their inde- perdence- and freedom from those emphatic views and sentiments which holiest men carry upon their sleeves, and publish with that emphasis and direeluerts w Inch truth inspires.

East Tennessea Secesson Again. A public meeting was held last Monday in Greenville, Tennessee to consider the question of the creation ot a new Stale out of East Tennessee. The meeting was largely attended by men of all olitical parties. A reso¬ lution was unanimously adopted, set¬ ting forth that the people of Greene county were in favor of separation. Their representatives in the State Legislature were instructed to sup¬ port the measure when it shall come up for the consideration and action of that body. The locality of this revo¬ lutionary movement is rather suspi¬ cious. Hath the retired sage of i -.-neviiie anything to di with it- inspiration? If so, wherefora? We are satisfied it does not meet with ap¬ proval generally throughout East Tennessee. The Post, at Athens, for in!ince, hooting at the idea, says that "every two jears during the last quarter of a century this thing of lorming a new State out of East Ten¬ nessee and portions of Virginia and North Carolina has been agitated, and generally treated with ridicule as it deserved to be; and there is less chance of its accomplishment now than ever before. It is an absun oroiect, whicj few people in any por tion of the Sate view favorably. If the question of dividing the State was seriously presented tome people, we have no idea it would receive the sup¬ port of two dozen intelligent voters in all lower iast Tennessee."

Tho expedition explored sev¬ er il of the tributaries of the A uazon. They say that at many points navigation was extremely diffi¬ cult and small boats had to be used. "Vegetation is remarkably luxuriant, and some of the rivers flow for miles beneath a perfect tunnel of arch formed by the branches of the trees meeting overhead. The branches are inter¬ twined with vines so thickly that it is impossible to see the sky through them. Frequently it Is so dark at mid-day in this tunnel that torches are necessary to enable the explorers to make their way. Monstrous rep¬ tiles infest these jungles." A.. C.

An Iowa editor has unfortunately fallen heir to nearly three millions, and will probably outlive his useful¬ ness as a journalist. An impoverished editor at the West got elected constable, but his new of¬ fice did not enable him to arrest the attention of his readers. A New York exchange says: The ice harvest will this w inter amount to one million tons. At least that is what the monopolists say. How wonderful are the laws govern¬ ing human existence. Were it not for tight lacing all civilized nations would be overrun with women.

What death w ould you prefer to die?" said one person to another. "I don't exactly know ; I should like to try seven or eight before det iding the point."
