THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL SATUEDAY, JANtTABY 91, 1871.
ftEflPES APPEAL OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE CITY. SATURDAY M0RNIN8, JAN. 21, 1871 Colonel Duncan K: M Rae will repeat his lecture of " Life's Light and Shade," at the Greenlaw Opera House, for the benefit of the Histori¬ cal Relief Society. There is a double incentive for attending the lecture, because the object for which it la de¬ livered is worthy of encouragement and because all who attend will be highly entertained by a brilliant lec¬ ture from one ot the ablest citizens of Memphis. The following are the names and polities ol the recently elected United Stated Senators: J. R. West, from Louisiana, Republican; Frank P. Blair, Missouri, Democrat; John A. Logan, Illinois, Radical ; P. W. Hitch¬ cock, Nebraska, anti-Administration ; Henry .Wilson, Massachusetts, Radi¬ cal; Ferry, Michigan, moderate Re¬ publican; Windom, Minnesota, Re¬ publican; Frelinghuysen, New Jer¬ sey, moderate republican; Morrill, re-elected from Maine, high tariff Re¬ publican ; Salisbury, Delaware, Demo¬ crat The Tribune says: "The beauty ot oar detective system finds fresh il lustration in the story of the Chicapo DJlioeman who claims to have dis covered the murderer ot Mr. Nathan He came to New York with his proots submitted them to the relatives of the murdered man, obtained money to continue the investigation, and was offered aid by the New York detective torce. Thereupon he suddenly be¬ came suspicious of the latter, con eluded he was to be swindled out of his proper share of the offered reward, and at once refused to have anything more to do with the case. While the detectives thus ijuarrel over their prospective pay, the murderer, il in¬ deed he is discovered, may be ap¬ prised of his danger by tne publicity given to the affair, and mafce hi- es¬ cape. This model Chicago detective in fact protects the criminal by his silence, instead of securing him as his first and bounden duty. Time was when detective officers consid¬ ered the occasional rewards offered for the detection of criminals as the perquisites, not the pay, of their pro¬ fession; now they iabor only when great rewards are the incentives. Bnt honest detectives appear of late to be as rare a.- skillful ones." t he time for the payment of taxes on land in Arkansas expired, we In - lieve yesterday, and the last day fcr the payment of taxes on personalty i the :Wth prox. Such have been the difficulties incident to the gathering of the cotton crop, and such the un¬ willingness of farmers to sell at pres¬ ent prices, superinduced by the Eu¬ ropean war, that not more than one in ten of the people of Arkansas have settled with the tax gatherers. We encounter here upon the streets citi¬ zens of Arkansas who have visited Memphis with only one or two bales of cotton in order to supply them- .elves with the bare necessaries of life, surely the Legislature, now in session at Little Rock, will extend a hare of relief to the people. The taxes already paid may be ordered forward at once to the State treasury, and thus the lawgivers may be en¬ abled to pay board bills while the peop!e escape the enormous losses and countless annoyances Incident to tax sale". The time within which payment of taxes may be mad? should be extended three or four months by the Legislature. The people will be gratified, the war will soon end, the State will be the richer to the extent that its people save money and time, and men will confess, tor the first time, that Radicalism has legislated wisely and well. For. some time past, especially since Governor Alcorn gave a final quietus to the stupidly absurd and frantic Flour noy, of Pontotoc, there has been an internal war within his own party, directed against the redoubtable iov- oraor. A dispatch from Jackson ad¬ vises us that the issua was made up in the State Senate, day before yesterday, between the triends and enemies of Governor Alcorn. The two aspirants for tbe presidency of the State Senate were Dowd, Alcorn's adherent, and Warner, the representative of the extreme Radicals. Dowd was elected, and thus Alcorn is again master of the It has been proposed by !ts and "haters" to im- psai d'ccoTer sufficient inert; in each to desire the election of both to the Senate of the United ettatoe. It ohamp.otMhip of both men was wholly disinterested, and especially that of Clayton, whom it for year so fiercely denounced, and whom it was powerless to either elect or defeat or in any manner benefit. The above, from the AvaUmcht, indicates afresh the envy it entertains for the Appeal. Its enterprise is that of the quack in going about to pull down all respectable opponents. Having lately found out from the returns that the income of the Appeal from its circulation exceeds its own as eleven to five, it has become blind with rage, and Is "still harping on my daughter." It is even " bothered " to see how the Appeal can make a choice of evils in one case, and then consistently indorse a staunch friend in another. We shall have to give the stupid dolt up as utterly incorri¬ gible. We shall never be able to teach it the common sense of making tbe best of one's circumstances, nor to save it by our friendly counsel from the ridicule of sensible men, which has come to be its aMotted portion. We tell it it is better to be enfranchised through the instrumentality of a ty¬ rant than to kick helplessly against inevitable force and lose all. But its eyes are so blinded by prejudice as never to be able to give even its sec¬ ond cousin, "the devil, his due." And its appetite for whipping Arkansas, rather than Tennessee Haynaus, is so whetted by its mistaken selfishness in hopeless rivalry, that it cannot even remember the danger of attacking Haynaus, even in lull view of the principle that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The election of Clayton, Senter, Walker and Brown, in part by Democratic votes, all proceeded on the same prin¬ ciple; and it participated, in its faint fashion, in two of these cases. Yet it cries out "consistency is a jewel," as if, more than any common hog, it wa-s possible it should ever wear a jewel, and continue to make out to breathe in rooting out a share of suc¬ cess by its accustomed underground process. The farmer cannot run a newspa¬ per, lie does not understand any¬ thing about the minutia of a daily journal. He knows nothing of the routine by which the presses are run, the types set up, and the aews ac- juired and arranged for each depart¬ ment. But the farmer can tell a good newspa per w hen he reads it. 1 1 is own good sense and the comments of his neighbors enable him to discover when an editor is "overcropping' himself by "planting" too much politics in his columns, or when he is 'sowing" too much poetry, and not cultivating enough religion and mo¬ rality. This rule operates in another direction. An editor does not under¬ stand the routine of a farmer's life. He may not know how to tie a hame- string, or to plow a furrow, or when seeds should be planted. But his ample opportunities for seeing, lead¬ ing, hearing and knowing enable him to tell when a farmer is injuring him¬ self by planting too much of one commodity and not enough of an¬ other. Our merchants, mechanics, all classes.and the farmers themselves, admit that the peaple of the South are pursuing a suicidal policy, in not planting less cotton and growing their own bread and meat. News¬ paper editors and writers for the last live years have blown their trumpets and urged the people of the South to look to their own interests by diver¬ sifying their labors, and now that the farmer is about to cast his lands for a new crop, we would again call his at¬ tention to this imKrtant matter. The question has often been asked : How can we get the farmers to make their own bread instead of making cotton and buying bread ? We are una¬ ble to answer the interrogatory, for it seems ourFphraims are joined to their idols. The cotton nlantersees that si! he makes goes North. He tells you at the end of the year he has no money, and still he will pursue the same tolly hog-like, will return to the mire of debt. The people of the South are the most foolish people in the world. If the South were to make her own supplies, which she can do, she would in a few years own one-haif the wealth of North America; but in¬ stead of so doing, we send off our money to the West for bread, meat, While the Radicals in Coagres are hunting down tha Kt-Kiix, and holding up their hands in holy hor¬ ror at the outrages of the wicked Dem¬ ocrats in North Carolina and Georgia, they had better turn their attention to the infamies of tbe Missouri Radi¬ cals. In tbe St. Louis Time of Thursday we find the following: I have been permitted to sea s petition this morning laid before Governor Brown, from one John Halfield, a citizen of Douglas county, which shows anything bnt an orderly and peaceable condition of affairs in that stronghold of Radicalism. Tbe following ia the document in foil: State of Missouri, county of Douglas. T i His Excellency, B. Urate Brc wn. Gov¬ ernor of the State of Missouri : Ths undersigned, your petitioner, a citizen ot Douglas county, respectfully bags leave to lay before yuur Excellency a few of the grievances to which he baa been compelled to submit, and aaka of your Excellency that protection which tte law of the country has failed to ren- dor, although often appealed to. Yonr petitioner has resided in said Douglas county about four years, in the neighbor¬ hood of A BAXD OF OtTTLAWS, known as Allaup's, who, with their eon- : ratea in crime, to the number of abjut forty, keep the better class of citi¬ zens in the surrounding country in per¬ petual alsrm, making, and often putting into execution, threats against life and property. They intimidate and FT EN BRIBK TBI OFFICERS of the law, and with the utmost imnunit v cominit arson, larceny, highway robbery and murder. Numbers of warrants for tbe arrest of these parties for tbe commis¬ sion of theee crimes ere now in ths hands of the proper officer unexecuted and some have been destroyed. They openly assert that HO REBEL OR DEMOCRAT SHALL LIVE in their midst and vote otherwise than tbey shall direct, and which they have rigidly enforced. They have ordered and compelled parties to leave the county because they entertained different politi¬ cal opinions from themselves. On or about the 10th day ol September, 1870, they came to petitioner's house (where were tbe Sheriff, Assessor and Constable, Geo. Smith, collecting taxes), to the number of twenty-five or thirty, all armed, and instigated by one Eliaha Kincade to kill ene James Cooper; after which they assaulted petitioner in his own house, THREATENED TO HAS- THE )X-TAIiLK, and ordered him to leave, overawed the Sheriff and compelled aim to arrest peti¬ tioner and detain him in custody for twenty-four hours, without warrant or tbe I'referment of any charge whatever against him. Thereupon petitioner ap¬ plied for and obtained a warrant from Justice Robert Wiley, for the arreat of tbe said Ailsopa acd their confederates, tor the at-aault matte upon petitioner, which warrant being placet! in the handa of Sheriff William Brszill, of said Douglas county, was soon after returned to Jus- tio v Hey unexecuted snd without any written return thereon. Petitioner's life and the destmction of his property being REPEATEDLY THREATENED by said Allsups and their confederates, petitioner has not bseu permitted to re¬ main at his home except clandestinely confederates assaulted petitioner's house, tiring FfirR OR MORE SHOTS I when petitioner was again compelled to I flselrom horns for saljty and is still s This is a brief and unvarnished state¬ ment of but a small portion ot the out¬ rages petitioner has endured, to satisfy your excellency of the truth of which he refers to the accompanying certificates made by reliable, law-abiding citizens, who respectfully ask of vour excellencv a careful perusal of petitioner's.prayer. Pe¬ titioner prays conjointly wit b those citi¬ zens whose names are attached, '.hat your excellency will dismiss from the office of sheriff of Douglass county the said William Brazil, and appoint instead a 1 man who will faithfully discharge the duties of said office without fesr or favor. Respectfully submitted, JOHN HATFIELD. Accompanying the above are a number of certificates, fully VOUCHING FOR THE TBCTHFULXKSa nf the facts as narrated, and the persecu¬ tion of the petitioner and other law-abid¬ ing citizna of the county by the gang of desperadoes known as the Allsupa, to¬ gether also with copies of several of the orders issued by the Allsups command¬ ing parties upan threats of the.r lives to leave tbe county, for no other ostensible reason than their entertaining Democratic sentiments. It ia understood that no leas than TWENTY-FIVE UNPROVOKED AND COLD¬ BLOODED MURDERS. have at different times been committed by this gang of outlaws, "in the name of loyalty," and that threats have been made against as many more. The case Is certain¬ ly one deserving of official investigation, and will doubtless receive the prompt at¬ tention of tbe Executive. It ia hardly neceesary to add to the above that Doug¬ las county boasts ol being the Mini COUNTY OF DISFRANCHlaEMKNT, having in the late election cast the largest majority of any county in the State against the suffrage and office-holding amendments. nothing more nor less than a photo¬ graph, the result of moisture, light, artdchemicei action there can be no doubt. It was so pronounced by the artist, Mr. Epler, and others, who made a close examination. The image is not visible from the inside of the window, though quite distinct to the eye at a distance not more than a f Mjt on the outside. It canntt be rubbed off, as was thorough¬ ly tested by several. It was also found that the placing of a black cloth back of the pane in¬ creased its distinctness very materi ally. All these feets clearly prove tiat it Is a genuine photograph, thou j, a taken by nature and without the aid ot an artist, and that it is similar in all respects to those images which sometimes appear on the negative glasses of the photographer, even after they have been thoroughly cleaned by means of alcohol. There have occurred cases similar to thin, though they are rare indeed The strange phenomenon was discov¬ ered by Mr. Voltaire H'iott, who lives directly across the street, and was visited by hundreds of persons during the day, curious to learn wnat it was It had been een by numbers of per sons previous to its discovery by Mr 8., who, supposing it to be a real per¬ son in the room, bad paid no atten tion to it. It is Indeed a curiosity well worth seeing, and it is due to the wondertui progress which has been made in the knowledge of chemical science and the application of its principles, as displayed in the art of photography that we do not attribute it to witches ghosts, hobgoblins and the yawning 01 gravtyards.

Back office. situation, tbe extremi peach Alcor from office, tbe success 1 guch a scheme, would be boundless taxation, with infinite expenditures, and the utter ruin of the State. Alcorn's Lieutenant Gov¬ ernor, it is said, would lend himself to the purpose of the extreme wing of the Radical party, the State would be flooded with its treasury notes, public and private credit would be destroyed and tbe State left in a more pitiable condition than lenneasee wnen Brow mow s party was dethroned. Under such circum¬ stances the question arises whether the A pptAL prefers Alcorn to Klour- noy, as it preferred Senter to 8tokes, and Clayton to Brooks or ItLci Knald " Common sense and common honesty ompel sensible people to rise above partisan prejudices, and ignoring the records of men, sustain in pressing circumstance such of the uo- un worthy aspirants for place and power as will best avail for the com¬ mon good. Mlssissippians are accus¬ tomed to deplore the possibility of Alcorn's resignation of the Guberna¬ torial chair an 1 accession to the Sen¬ ate of the United States. They would not have themselves subjected to the I tender mercies ol Fiournoy's ring. And yet there would be quite as much reason for animadversions against the Appeal if it sustain Al¬ corn, as for its expressed preference for Clayton in his contest with the extreme men of his party in Arkan¬ sas. In the case before us, we deem It vary fortunate that Warner has been beaten and Dowd elected Presi¬ dent of the State Senate. In this very Intelligent Missiasippian, how¬ ever violent his prejudices or em¬ phatic his Judgment against Governor Alcorn, will surely concur with the Appeal. Twa Appral eulogiaea Frank Blair tor be exactly the oppoait of that tor wUAUao recently auloglasd the rlone Governor Clavton of .

The North, Kast and West laugh at us, and grow fat while they make game of us. They say we. can't make a broom to sweep our houses, ihey call us rebels. They say we are so illiterate we don't even have common schools. They say not one-half of us can write our names. They say we are not tit for anything but to be their slaves, and that we have heretofore drawn all their water, and hewn all their wood, and that we are not lit for self government; and a thousand like things. Can't the South see and feel these things? The North is luxuriating in wealth, Their money is plenty, fcut j,efe la the South every body is poor, The farmers are making nothing while they are wearing out their liv. . health, strength and their lands and horses to make cotton for the North, rien on. is waxing and the why is it so ruinous'.' i agents ol iployed as ny mules, i so much Tbe rest of the fat out of tbe product of the So our farmers permit world hi overseers to drive coax the negroes, money and raise so much cotton, for which hey receive a poor living.

In South Carolina the Radi¬ cals are perpetrating the same atroci¬ ties they have enacted in Missouri. The effects of creating a negro militia and letting it loose upon the commu¬ nity are beginning to be felt in South Carolina, where alien adventurers, rogues, and vicious Africans have combined to rob and riot in every sort of fiendish excess. This militia deliberately murdered Mr. Stevens, a respectable citizen, because he refused to give them whisky, and other atro- i rious crimes have been perpetrated with no color of provocation. Gov. Scott and his plundering followers who from poverty have grown to sudden and enormous wealth, are re¬ sponsible lor these outrages. After having used the negroes for their own selfish aims and pocketed all the money obtained from excessive taxes beyond the absolutely necessary ex¬ penditures of the Government, they now send forth these armed negroes, under the name of militia, to ravage and destroy for their own gain. And when the people of South Carolina, who are subjected to such cruel and infamous oppression, seek to protect their wives and children against the brutal instincts of this licentious sol¬ diery, they are either shot down like dogs or calumniated in Congress by the chaii ipions of these barbarians.

Tbe history of each is familiar to the oountry. The two men represent tbe politic!, moral and social antipodes. If soar at Worthy, Clayton ia infamous. If Clayton la worthy, Blair ia iniamoue. This ia a plain proposition, which wa can sustain without reference to any other authority than tha Afpaal, YoithoAr- tue&iiii of wealtn. r-very one admits this. Every one knows tbAt he who stakes bis bread and meat upon a cot¬ ton crop is sure to go to swift destruc¬ tion upon its failure. But tbere seems to be something so alluring in growing cotton, and tbe prospect of handling a large number of cotton bales is so en¬ ticing, even though there should be no profit, and ia spite of sound logic, and in the face of acknowledged hazard, the desire among farmers for a large cotton crop is irresistible, and well nigh universal. Wo have seen many, very many farmers, who boast of their cotton. We tannot recall a single instance where one boasted of his corn or wheat crops, or his cattle or stock. There seems to be something in growing cotton akin to gaming. The cotton planter takes all the hazards of the season, all the hazards of labor, all the hazards of the cotton market, all the hazards of tbe money market, and all the haz¬ ards of political disturbance in the civilized world. The truth of the matter is that individual as well as the public interest will be best pro- tuoicu oy producing leas cotton and tnpre meat and bread. We hope when this is seen and conceded, if not before, to sea reformation. Krom tbe Sandusky Register. The question which seemed to agi¬ tate the ghost-believing portion of tbe community yesterday was, whether I one of these spirits which haunt de- I xerted houses and nightly stalk abjM&d through graveyards, was on 4 visit to Sandusky. So rumor -said on the i street at rather an eariy hour yester¬ day morning, and the particular lo¬ cality ot his visitation was announced to be tbe Lake House. Soon a motly crowd of men, women and children, old and young, credulous and Incredu¬ lous, turned their steps toward the spot, eager to ascertain what was the wonderlul object reported to be visi¬ ble on a window pane in the third story of the hotel. The object was found to be the Image, or rather a photograph, of a young lady's face impressed on the glass, and so dis¬ tinctly as to be recognized by all who had seen the original as that of a young lady by the name of Lula Thayer, residing in New Orleans, who, in company with her mother and sisters, spent tbe summer season at the Lake House, occupying the room in which the window Is located. This window being near the corner of the building, affords a view of Water street toward the west. Miss Thayer ;was in the habit oi sitting at tbe window for hours at a time, look¬ ing out upon the street, and the pho¬ tograph so represents iber. The image is perfect, aad distinct as to be visible at lhJUst e ofldVeral rods in a moderate gulgbt. That it is Agents wanted to sell the LIFE AMD CAMPAIGNS OF Gen. H. E.LEE, Bt .1 amss D.
