JFFfglAL JjrUMiAL OF THE CfTY.
r RID AY OBMIMfi. : : : : i JUNE 2, 1871 THE MlMFHTTS DAILY APPEAL-FEIDAY, JUNE 2, 1871. a a result of the agitation of the question by the Appeal, we are like¬ ly aoon to have an emigrant aid so- net y, fort protection and benetit uf the poor people who come amongst m as permanent settlers. It will om- prise people of all nationalities, and we feel certain will be controlled only for the good of those in whose inter- eat-' it is to be established. We want emigrants because we believe it is necessary to enrich the country that ojr itu - may prosper. The Irish people who stood by the Union should remember that Grant refused to appoint to West Point a ,jn of Thomas Francis Meagher, who commanded the Immortal Irish ( Federal Brigade until there were not enough men left in it to form a full regiment, but in his stead appointed one of Brigham Young's sons, who is now a student ol the military acadetny. Thus Grant, who is con¬ sidered the Union saver par excellence, prefers to conciliate a beast ial. orgie- lovini; brute, who can control Mor¬ mon votes, rather than reward the offspring of a gallant Irish soldier, who . an no longer serve his turn at the hustings. The Democracy of the North, who are striving to rescue theGovernment ih r int, hA- of despotism, ilc not ask of Mr. Davis a change of his indi vidual convictions, but the Democ¬ racy, North and South, do ask of him silence. I 'nion and American. We think not. On the contrary, and now that Be is not permitted to be silent, or to speak without leing mis- repn.-euted, we think the time has come for him to speak not only, but to speak distinctly, definitely and fully his whole mind. We have no fear that either Mr. Davis or any other Southern statesman will say anything 1 3 the detriment of the South. It has nothing to conceal, and we think the time has come when it should be at least made certain that it attempts to onceal nothing. Henry S. Foote, the irrepressible, it he ever was right never stayed so long. He was first a whig, then a Oalhoun nulliner, then a Dem crat, then a compromise unionist, then a secessionist, then a submissionist, then a runaway, and" now in his broken down senility would play the role of dictator to the Democratic party, which never trusted him, and never ItHind reason highly to respect him for practical good sense or wisdom in any of his trimmer like changes of a lone, inconsistent and valueless life. We are willing to ac¬ cord to him the character of a weak and worthy man, more consistently inconsistent than any other of any tolerable prominence the country has produced. But his prominence is that of mere extravagance and noto¬ riety as a sensational showman, rather than based on any of the substantial merits of sagacious and enduring statesmanship. No man ver thinks of following his lead, and none dare go with him who are not alway- as ready to go back as to go forward. The proceedings of the Twenty-first Civil District meeting bear the evident mark of his sickl paternity. He declares in the resolu¬ tions he offered on that occasion, that no southern journal is entitled to southern confidence, which contends now for the iprinciple that the States alone under the Constitution have the right to regulate the terms of the franchise within their own limits, notwithstanding that it advises sub¬ mission and obedience to all existing law-. He proposes to muzzle the press, and nact a new sedition law, in a role in which, with his uuai impudence, he proposes to be the leader. He would organise clubs -to put down Ku-Klux, confes¬ sing the lie, by neither denying nor avoiding it, that such a thing ex¬ ists for political purposes in the Dem¬ ocratic nartv! Save us from such fri ud-' Clubs to put down lawless- ti.-r. i- ill that Ku-Klux ever were, s: far as ex-Confederates and Demo¬ crats ver had anything to do with them. And now he w ould get up new Ku-Klux and Ku-Klux the Ko-Khtxl If he or any ot his friends propose suit¬ able measures to suppress lawless¬ ness of any sort, ana will show- any more efficient way of doing it than that of aiding the officers of the civil, law in its enforcement by all the mean.- and appliances due from the citizen, we shall most willingly in¬ dorse such a measure. But we see nothing of the sort which is practi¬ cable, since oar people are as willing and ready to enforce and obey the laws as any people under the sun.. We protest against the admission of an extraordinary necessity such as Is implied in the res¬ olutions mentioned. We have just the same need of vigorous enforcement of th.- laws in Tennessee that exists in other States, and no more, so far as our white population is concerned. If we had laws and freedom to suppress vagraLcy and punish slanden from carpet-bag sources, it might be an im¬ provement. Certainly it will be none to confess the sin of the Ku-Kluxism of which we aro not guilty, and elect Henry S. Foote generalissimo to ex¬ ecute the laws of the State, and min¬ ister plenipotentiary to honey oar- selves into the embrace of the Repub¬ lican partv. It is not tor the interest ot the Rad¬ ical partisans to ive the bouUi peace; and so they make, and report when they cannot make, what they call Ku-Klux outrage and enormities. In this way they keep alive the ani¬ mosities Which divide the section-. And just so it is with Mr. J. n o Davis. They will not permit him to be silent. U he speaks in social life, or at agricultural or religious meet¬ ings, they will pervert what he say into somes rt of political significance, however far from expressing any po¬ litical view may have been his inten¬ tion. If he doe-) not speak, it is all toe same; he is pronounced simply reticent and sullen, a representative rebel and enemy still. Whether by uim or any other southerner any¬ thing good or evil is done or left un¬ done, the most is mexle of it for the political purposes of partisans who peace only to ncrease thin power of injustice and oppression. And so it makes little practical difler- ao tar as the good of the South- people is concerned, whether they do one thing or another, little or much. The masses of the Northern people read only the Re¬ publican journals. And thesd rarely republish answers to misrepresenta¬ tions and oflrrectioBsof fact maa th innrnsla of the Sollfil. In CO quence, they cn only be reached by some of their own journals and men, as they may be by Mr. Greeley, If he is brave, truthful and honest enough to do it. 1 1 is easy for pitiful insects to buzz, and for small men to carp and snarl around the great and good they would profit by abusing. And it may be that the Northern press finds it not difficult to verify the adage that for its purposes lies well stuck to are as good as the truth, and to keep in sym¬ pathy with a people blinded by its false statements. But the Southern press will have uphill work when it undertakes to give aid and comfort to these damnable R idieal practices and purposes. The Avalanche may win Radical patronage by doing it it is entitled to nothing else but the thirty pieces due to its betrayal. Mr, Davis is a private citizen, who has the same right with others to speak or hold his peace, and to exercise his own judgment as to what he shall say. He is certainly a friend of the Southern people. II he has said any¬ thing false, we have not seen it. If he has said anything worse than what every brave man of the South will indorse, viz: that the truths and prin¬ ciples for which Southern statesmen have contended are not lost, and will survive so long as the fires of liberty remain uuqueuched in the hearts ol our people, it is more than we know. If he has said anything that any Southern man, not a skulker, does not both know to be true and feei willing frankly to ac¬ knowledge, we have not been apprised of it. Yet he is now struck at by the mousing owls of the Avalanche, not because he has said anything injurious to the Southern people or con¬ trary to truth, but to win favor by lalling in with a class of intriguers and schemers at home, who are constantly crying, "take care!" and imagining mischiets and speak¬ ing in whispers. Mr. Davis Ls able to take care of himself. So far as North¬ ern Dublic sentiment about him or any other Southern man is concerned, or about the acts of Southern men, not a thing mere would be believed nor more danger incurred, if every lie told was truth, and every late Con federate was a lurking assassin. If we do no more to muddy the upper waters than the lambs at the foot of the stream, the wolves will hound on just the saaie as if we did our utmost. We shall be " hung for an old sheep instead of a lamb.'' And those who cry dow n proved friends of the South because of some supposed impru¬ dences, would do well to look to their own, and exercise charity. As for a journal preteuding to be Democratic and Southern, striking Mr. Davis for no fault it dares lay a finger on, we can only say it proves what has al¬ ways been suspected of it that it acts on the spoils principle, and can be had lor a less price than that for which Judas or Arnold sold themselves. THE ! N TB1TH." The common complaint and teal misfortune of tradesmen in all South¬ ern cities arises from the simple fact that there are relatively too many merchants, lawyers, and dwellers in cities and villages as ompared with the number of tillers of the soil. In no country on the globe have small farmers grown rich so rapidly as since the extinction of slavery, in the South. Farmers with narrow fields along lit¬ tle streams, in blooming valleys, culti¬ vated by he owner of the soil and his sons, have accumulated money with a rapidity never known before. Every¬ where in the poorest counties of Mis¬ sissippi aud Alabama, where each family cultivates its own garden and jtton and corn, the people prosper and the country Is enriched and becomes more and more densely populated. On the contrary, w herever broad plan¬ tations are sought to be cultivated, ten have faile i to each one that 1ms sought sudden wealth through hired industry. it is thus palpably demonstrated, not only that planta¬ tions should be subdivided into farms, but that recourse must be bad to im¬ migrants. It is absurd to suppose that loreigners, quite as intelligent a those who propose to employ them, will be content to fill the position of mere menials. They see broad acres everywhere untitled. They soon be¬ come conscious of the necessities of the country and of the people, and are little disposed to occupy positions growing out of i lie relation- ol land¬ lord and tenant, or of planter and la¬ borer. In fact, however thoroughly Northern Americans and Europeans are imbued with the idea Of negro and white equality, they never fail to for¬ get the fine theory in practical life, and no white man whencesoever he may migrate, will submit to practical or social equalization with the negro. The test has been applied every¬ where in this vicinity, and Germans, Scandinavians, French and Swiss people, like New Englanders, revolt, annul contracts and abandon the country, whenever they are made to supply the places of blacks in cotton and corn fields. There must be a sub¬ division of plantations. Plans must be adopted by which foreigners seek¬ ing homes may become absolute own¬ ers of the soil. They are not only made content, but are soon assimi¬ lated to us in habits of life, in modes of thinking, and as rapidly do they be¬ come conscious of an identity of for¬ tune and interest with the masses of the people. it is not simply a question of labor supply, but of white citizen supply, which this convention may discuss. It is not simply a question of in- I dustrial prosperity, but of civil rights I and polilical security and repose. The simple idea that the white is to be substituted for the black laborer and voter is absurd and impossible. There will be no competition between whites and blacks. Europeans who leave I homes in the land of their fathers, who abandon friends and kindred and I disrupt ties hallowed by the tenderest ! memories, do not come hither to .- ume the position of bondsmen or of J mere dependents. They will always demand the only boon, perfect per¬ sonal independence, that would justify a change which disrupts relations in life sanctified by the endearments of home, kindred aud country. The primary necessity id subdivision and sale of lands, and not less important is the instruction of the masses of our own people ai to the modes of think¬ ing, habits of life and aspirations of European immigrants. Above all, the exercise of wise forecast Is required in providing for the wants ot immigrants until they may provide for themselves. ! Foul wrongs have been done many people of many nationalities by selfish ignorance. Many foreigners have been brought hither only to go away wronged, robbed, sickened, uncared names of Arkansas', Teunesee and Mississippi. We speak of what we know and of those to whose abject want, when driven naked and penniless from broad plantatlons,this people haveoften min¬ istered, when victims of ignorant av¬ arice have sought refuge and bread in this city This convention should educate our own people as well as instruct those of Europe in regard to the produc¬ tiveness of our fields, the cheapness of lands, and the delights of Italian skies and sunsets. ill i. i in H4 1I4HU.S. The free schools closed yesterday and will not be opened until the mid¬ dle nf HontAmlww. The APPEAL has made a- full reports of the various ex aminatinnv nd exhibitions, as the pressure upon our columns would per¬ mit. We have attended many of the recent exercises, and we but express the sentiment ot the entire rnbiic when we say that there Ls no city in this broad Union that can boast of a better school system than that with which Memphis is blessed. Much praise is due to the able and efficient superintendent, J. T. Leatb, for tfie efficient and perfect organization of our school system. We learn, with deep regret, that he has expressed his determination to resign so soon as he closes up his business. It is to be hoped that the public, which Ls alike interested in the cause of education, will prevail on Mr. Leath to continue in the position for which he i- so pe¬ culiarly adapted and which he has filled with so mnch honor to himself and satisfaction to the peo¬ ple. It was our intention to give a sketch, and to pay a deserved compli¬ ment to each teacher by name; but we can, at present, only speak in general terms of commendation. The life of a teacher is an unthankful one for where there are so many varied tastes to please, it is impossible to gratify all. But the teachers in the free schools of Memphis have been eminently suc¬ cessful in their labors. During the ex¬ aminations we have heard but little complaint and much in commenda¬ tion, and each father or mother seemed impressed with the happy belief that the teacher of their children was the best in the city. When a distinguished writer said: M God be thanked for the gift of school teachers," he gave ex¬ pression to a sentiment which ought to find a home in every heart. But how often it is that the love of a parent for an eriing child causes him do injustice to a teacher. Next to the avocation of a newspaper editor, that of school teacher Ls per¬ haps the "most difficult, harassing and perplexing. We care not how cau- ticus an editor may be, how great his desire to do justice, how much space he may give free of charge in report¬ ing picnics, lairs, ceieorauons, con¬ ventions and public meetings, he is sure to offend somebody, and if Behool teachers, with all their labor, are unable to manage a spoiled child, to make scholars out of dunces, they are accused of partiality and the dis¬ gruntled mother rushes to the super¬ intendent just as the indignant reader rushes lor the editor, to whose paper he is not perhaps a subscriber. In ninety-nine cases out of every hun¬ dred, where a difficulty occurs be¬ tween teacher and pupil, the fault is with the child ; for the teacher has no motive to commit injustice, and every incentive to do right. A cruel and unjust teacher has no business iu a school-room. And they are seldom found there, for one session always ends the career ot such teachers. Parents should be slow to censure teachers, tor after their con¬ tinued kindness and forbearance, their unparalleled goodness and tender compassion for the faults and follies of children, after striv¬ ing by patience and perseverance to mould the character iu accordance with the noblest principles of science and learning to blame a teacher after all these struggles, is the " serpent tooth" that is "sharper" than a " thankless child." The school house is the nursery of all that is pure and holy, and the teacher Ls entitled to that position which is assigned to the preacher, the hero, the statesman and the patriot. No loud-toned trumpet sounds forth their praise; but they should command the blessings, the affections and the gratitude of all. They drag no miserable captives at their chariot wheels ; but " peace hath her victims no less renowned than war." and the school teachers who have tilled the miud with knowledge, and implanted seeds that will ripen into rich fruit, have built for them¬ selves a monument more durable and preferable than a pyramid made of skulls. We congratulate the teachers on the success of their various examina tions, and the public on the success of their free school system Tbe closing exercises of the late session attracted unusual interest, and twelve months from now it will require one ot our theaters to hold the crowd who will attend our city schools. The next session, we presume, from present indications, will open under the most favorable auspices. We should all watch its progress with deep interest, for no good citizen can feel indifferent to anything that concerns the educa¬ tion of his children. To read, in other times, was the privilege of a favored few ; in ours it is the right, aud is destined to become the posses¬ sion of all. To tax the wealth of the State for the universal diffusion of knowledge, is the noblest characteris tic of the age in which we live. The rich lessons of history have too plain¬ ly taught, that it affords the only solid foundation on which the virtue and happiness of the people, and the mor al energy of Republican institutions can rest. Give the people facilities for reading, and tbe power of a free" press, acting upon the mighty empire of public opinion, in harmony with the puri uying doctrines of Christian it y, will emancipate them from all fanaticism aud every error. In this way only, can civil freedom and re¬ ligious liberty be enjoyed in full per¬ fection. mmammmimmmmmm mi.Hi CAJHMW MAsit. tWHT. The speech delivered by Hon. Jef¬ ferson .Bv8 Atlanta will be found in another column. We are gratified to see that the great representative of the Confederate cause, speaks, not as a crouching slave,but as a freeman. It will be seen that Mr. Davis refuses to confess that he was a fool, a knave and a traitor, by spitting upon the cause for which he labored and suf¬ fered. He is one of that claw of Bour¬ bons who believe that principles are immutable and eternal, and that the cause ot religion is just as pure and holy while under the feet of infidels and savages, as it is wheu shining out in all the sun. Mr There 'accepting as tin v,-sss gr nee of tike noonday's vis sa9 : a g. od deal of talk about the situation," but as far concerned he would "ac- DRY 6000S. cept nothing!" These miserable phrases about "accepting the situa¬ tion" because our rights hart been submitted to the arbitrament of the sword and lost, were the excuses of dunce and cowards. No one had any- right to submit the liberties of a peo¬ ple to the arbitrament of the sword. The representatives of the Southern people had never been authorized to do anything of the kind. As their Chief Executive he had never been so authorized, nor did he ever claim to be. He did not like to be understood as advocating resistance. On the contrary, he counseled submission to existing laws. For uttering these words of truth, Mr. Davis will be calumniated by the Radicals and sneered at by creatures who ridicule the very word principle. But a short time since, before the Southern politicians were debauched by a lust for spoils, General Wade Hampton said : Above all, be not misled by that unmeaning jargon which tells you that your case was submitted to the arbitrament of arms, and that the sword has decided that cause against you. The sword has never, nor will It ever, decide a principle or establish a truth. It can, as it has often done, overthrow a just cause and make might take the place of right; but it never can reverse the immutable laws of God, and make what is evil appear right in His sight. A noble cause, upheld heroically by honor, courage, patriotism, may die alonK with its supporters. A great truth never dies, but eternal as the Godhead trom which it springs, it lives forever, amid all the changes of dynasties, the wreck of empires and the death of na¬ tions. It Ls, too, as lalse in fact as in logic to assert that the sword can or does decide justly between right and wrong. With the sword the Goths and Vandals drenched the fair fields of Italy with the best blood of her sons. It gave nearly half the world to Mahomet. It allowed the Turk to trample out the civilization of Greece. Its keen edge has dismembered Po¬ land. It has left Hungary bleeding at the feet of the oppressors. It has turned over Snain and Portugal to the tender mercies of the Saracen, and on this continent and in our day, directed by unscrupulous power against the throats o prostrate States, reeking with paracidal blood, it enforces the laws which it alone has made. Tell me not, then, that the sword can rightfully turn the scales ot justice. It is the exponent ol tyranny, not the arbiter of truth the badge of the ty¬ rant and the executioner, not the symbol of justice. It is not at all inconsistent with the views that we, as a conquered people, should observe scrupulously the terms dictated by the word and accepted by us. We can do this, and should do it in perfect good faith ; but we should claim and exercise the God-given right of free¬ dom of opinion. We acknowledge that the cause for which these men died is lost: but we should be false to them, false to that cause, were we to admit that thev were, because of failure, necessarily wrong. We believe that they were right, and we therefore honor and respect their memory. If thev were rieht. time will vindicate their action and record their fame. The above was published by almost every Southern paper and indorsed as an "elegant extract;" but when the same great truths are enunciated by Jefferson Davis, he is traduced and blackguarded by contemptible scrib¬ blers who, to secure plunder, would stultify themselves and degrade a martyr to the cause of liberty. It is moustrous for Mr. Davis to proclaim a truth, but it is marvelously proper, witty and smart for Mr. allandig- ham to promulge the same immutable principle. The resolutions of Mr. Vallandigham introduced at the Day¬ ton Democratic meeting for Mont¬ gomery county, were called the key¬ note for the next Presidential election, and regarded as models of Democratic orthodoxy. One of Mr. Vallandig- ham's whereas is as follows : Whekf.as, It is reasonable to sup¬ pose that those same men still enter¬ tain to a large extent their several opinions, and would, it in like circum¬ stances, support again sunsrantiany the same measures. Now, this simply means, give up none of your former opinions; it you thought secession right and took up arms to sustain it, think so still; and if ever the time comes when it Will be available take up arms aga'u. Mr. Vallandigham's first resolution says: "agreeing to dis¬ agree in all respects as to the past," we will make a "new departure;" but when Jefferson Davis " agrees " or "disagrees "as to " tho past;" .when he exercises the privilege which Mr. Vallaudigham's preamble gives him, of " entertaining " his "opinion " and asserting he " would, if in like cir¬ cumstances, support again substan¬ tially the same measures," Mr. I .'avis is pronounced a rebellious B .urbou and Mr. Vallandigham a truly loyal, submissive Democrat! There is not a man in the South who would attempt to make real and vital the cause of secession. Every Con¬ federate soldier observes with scrupu¬ lous fidelity the terms of his parole. Jefferson Davis invokes peace ; he has deported himself since the surrender, whether as a prisoner chained in a dungeon, or a private citizen, with a lofty grandeur that has commanded the admiration of the world, and his sublime devotion to tne cause mat is lost, sanctifies the graves ol our dead heroes. Were he the craven to con fess that the tonlederate cause was traitorous and wrong because it failed, there would be no days set apart to decorate and commemorate the graves of the dead, and our wives and moth ers and sisters would no longer be proud of the husbands, fathers and brothers slain by patriotic hands while engaged in treason.
