THl SOUTH SKS PACrTIC RAILROAD.
Caoas Corjtrry, Abk., May 26, 1871.
Editor Appeal You received my com¬
munication concerning oar railroad in
Arkansas so favorablythat I am tempted to
risk another more general in its character.
The organisation of the Southern Pacific
ompany.recently eflected, calls attention
to the tact that Memphis expects to be
the principal eastern terminus on tbe Mis¬
sissippi tor this great trunk line scross
the continent. The road now progressing
from Norfolk designed to give direct oom-
munlcstlon with Memphis, strengthens
this expectation, while it adds much to
the value and importance of the whole
line, and especially aa afiecting Memphis
and the Southwest. For it must be
strongly remembered thst this Atlantic
seaboard will be several hundred miles
nearer by this route than by the one now
traveled. Besidea, Norfolk affords a safe
and capacious winter harbor whence and
whither all ocean craft can go and come
with far less expense and danger than
they encounter in leaving and approach¬
ing the harbors of New York, Boa-
ton and Portland during tbe inclement
season. How long, think you, it will be
before the greater number of the cotton
freighters sail and steam will take
their departure from Norfolk after these
communications are completed, instead
of encountering the perils of Hell Gate
and tbe Sound, In getting out of New
York : or the fierce northeasters on tbe
Atlantic coast, and which play such havoc
with everything on the ocean, from Hali¬
fax to Cape May; or even submitting to
the delay, inconvenience and expense of
towing over the bar at New Orleans?
How Memphis looms up wheu she is con¬
templated ss the great emporium into
which the vast products of the Southwest
are gathered to find distribution to ail
parts of tbe world ; whither all travelers
tor business or pleasure throng to scatter
thence to their respective destinations;
and, finally, the last gateway on this con¬
tinent through which oriental commerce
and travel pour themselves to step
across the Atlantic and reach the
western borders of their own conti¬
nent. Is this visionary T Remember
it is not only several hundreds
of miles nearer from Memphis to Nor¬
folk than to New York, bat more hun¬
dreds of miles nearer across the conti¬
nent by wsy of Texas and San Diego,
than over tbe snowy plains snd mountain
gorges of Kansas, Colorado, Utah and the
I rightfully picturesque region of the
Sierra Nevada. In the wonderful age in
which it is our happy fate to live, there is
less danger of our expecting too much
than too Tittle of the future.
We must remember another fact, that
this Southern Pacific is not wholly im¬
portant because it goes westward across
the continent. We shall feel most its
banefits because it comes east as well as
goes west. Texas will poor all her feed¬
ers into its great trunk. Her millions cf
cattle, her other equal millions of wheat,
her vast future cotton product will here¬
after find easy egress out of her now al¬
most inaccessible and unknown expanse
of fertility. . So the net-work of railroads
with which Arkansas is now con-
connecting herself will gather their
lines toward this great highway,
and thus we shall see that while
" westward the star of empire takes its
way" the East will get her compensation
in tbe contrary direction which commerce
will take. All these railroads, therefore,
with which Arkansas is now or about to
be traversed and environed, become inter¬
esting and important, not alone for their
individual value, but quite as much be¬
cause they cunhiitute the muscles and
sinews of a stupendous system of trans-
continentisi travel and transportation.
Memphis, watching for her great future

the Mississippi, has a direct andliveiy in¬
terest in all these roads, and her capitalists
and property-holders would be far more
creditably and profitably employed in
giving aid and encouragement to them
than in mousing about the corners to
watch for the highest rate of usury
for their money or putting on the
last turn of the screw on rents already ex¬
orbitant. That was a good article of
yours, the other day ; about tbe failure or
incapacity ol Southern men to co-operate
in useful and important enterprises.
To see the sublime iudifference with
which some of the owners of lots and
blocks, and even acres iu Memphis, go
about the tsreeta cambered with and car¬
ing for nothing only td get and raise their
rents, one is ttupled to believe that they
either care tor nothing but themselves, or
else have no capacity or comprehension
above that of a pea-nut merchat both

ABOUT EM IO RANTS,
Editort Appeal Please allow a few
words about emigration. How can the
tide of emigration be directed to the Stale
of Tennessee and the South generally?
This is the question to be solved. Many
have been the plans submitted, and tbey
ail aptear very plausible. One should
think thousands and thousands of foreign¬
ers would flock this way after reading
the iuluo6Ljeuts held out to them, in
some instances they have acted favorably
and the pouring in of mechanics and la¬
borers seemed to become extensive. I ex
peeled to see the fields of Tennessee
bloom like those of Pennsylvania, Ohio
and Illinois, and hear the mechanics' tools
resound from the workshops like tbey do
m Khode Island. Connecticut and Mr.--s
ctiusetts; but loll see them go back as
fast, if not faster, than they came, and
certainly all were poorer at the time of de¬
parture. v ny is ii . many limes i nave
heard it asked, and nearly every time a
sad. sad story was told by too emigrants
At present I do not wish to go into the
merits of these complaints, but assure
you all attempts now to force an influx of
immigration to Ienneasee would be use¬
less. Until our next legislature of which
we have a right to expect much for the
good of our state win secure a poor
man's rights and protect him in that
which is due him. all money and time
expended on the sut.i ct of emigration is
lost: nay, It can only lniure the cause.
Until then when tbe workingman knows
his money, hard labored for, mast be his
at the coming Saturday, ortbe nrst of the
month or so, all endeavors will be in vain.
1 would advise you to let the matter rest
st present and only urge oar legislative
bodies to pass a law that will secure the
rights of the immigrants. C. S.

Editors Appeal Why Is it that smoking
is allowed on the street cars here iu Mem
phis, when it is not the case anywhere
else that I know oi ? It is certainly a
nuisance, and ought to be abated. You
will often see a gentleman, or one who
considers himself such, ana is so con
sidered, enter with his cigsr sometimes
an old stinking pipe and if there are not
more than one or two ladies present, he
does not care much ; but if there are no
ladies he takes his seat and puffs sway as
if in the open street, not seeming to
think, or care, that there are gentlemen
to whom it is as offensive, and even more
so, than a msiority ot ladies. Let a stop
be put to smoking on the cars Inside or

276 Mala street.
We regret being called upon to tell, this
morning, the story of what we cannot
bat construe as an accident, though pain¬
ful in its result, bringing sorrow to two
households, between which there bad
heretofore existed only the moat exalted
esteem and friendship. A young boy
named Stewart Oobb. playing with one of
i bis companions, named Charley Bolsaeaq,
iast evening, about o'clock, in the
yard cf the premises, 124 Court street,
was threatened by the latter, in a Joking
way, that if be persisted in playing he
would stab him with a knife which he
hsd in his hand. Young Cobb, not think¬
ing it possible that Boisseau could mean
him harm, persisted In the course of play
he had been engaged in, and approaching
nesr to his companion, was stabbed by
him in the left breast, In the region ot the
heart, and .fatally. The knife entered a
little above the heart, making a wound
that it is thought cannot fail to prove
fatal. We would not add a pang
to those which harass the family
of the wounded or the offending boy, but
we cannot refrain from suggesting the
impropriety of parents allowing their
childreaj to carry weapons that, as in
this case, msy be used with fatal effect.
Human life is too valuable to be jeopar¬
dized even in joke or whim, too valuable
to be sacrificed in play by the prompt¬
ings of a jest.

The unsuccessful attempt of the white
lady to drown herself In the Miashauppl,
Wednesday evening, seemed to be bat the
beginning of a aeries of suicidal disasters
among female humanity which followed
That night, when the "wee sma' boars"
had crept along beyond twelve, a colored
sister, who had been frequenting church
gatherings for some time before, and was
thoroughly Imbued with religion, had
commenced feeling that now would be a
good time to " go marching home." The
poor woman was one of those hard work¬
ing, honest creatures who are mostly
always straggling to do well and mostly
always miss doing well. After getting
herself properly enthused at a religious
meeting Wednesday night, she walked
borne pondering heavily on the glorie -
the future land, the land beyond tbe stars,
those sunlit shores where the grass ia ever
green and the flowers always gay. She
could not sleep; no, bat she wept
at the prospect which waa before
her, poor washerwoman aa she waa.
She thought she would hasten the
hoar of her deliverance. Jumping to her
big feet, in ecatacies with the beauty of
the new revelation.she wa ked forth in the
starlight, sought the nearest cistern, and.
carefully removing the lid, she lowered
horself down to the cold, dark water
below. This waa at tbe corner of Her¬
nando street and Brown's avenue. The
man of the house went out in his disha¬
bille to ascertain what caused the splash,
splash in the water. After a time the
form of the colored person was hsuled out,
but the spirit had gone. Down in that
narrow cistern the troubled, but hopeful,
soul of the washerwoman was made free;
and ere the morning sun gilded the tree-
tops of Elmwood, it was careering through
space on viewless wings, flying from bad
soap, dirty clothing and bad-paying
patrons. The Coroner inquested the re¬
mains of Chant Harris, and she was
buried st the county's expense yesterday
morning.
Mr. Ham, of nhe Fifteenth Amendment,
went to the premises of Mr. Myers, at the
Humboldt Park, Wednesday night, after
the " picnickers " had all retired and
everything was quiet and slumbering be¬
neath the soft beams of the moon, and at¬
tempted to force an entrance to the house;
thinking, perhaps, that beer bad so soused
the spirit of the occupants that they oould
not hear what might be done outside.
Tbe proprietor, however, woke up, jumped
out of bed and seized a shotgun, with
which he plugged Mr. Ham in the most
graceful and effective manner. Tbe
wonnded person was subsequently
carried to his home, if any he had.
at Central Point, where he was attended
by Dr. White, who gave it as his opinion
that the man would die. He had more
lead in him than comported with a healthy
existence. Mr. Myers gave himself up
yesterday, so the case will be investigated
to-day.
A colored woman, who lives on Beale
street, took an ounce of laudanum yester¬
day morning, and would have died had
her stomach been strong enough to bear
the dose. What she did not " heave off,"
was hauled off by Dr. White's stomach
pump. She still dwells in this vale of
tears. Laudanum ia a very uncertain in¬
strument it does not agree with every
organization. Strychnine or prosaic
scid is more reliable. The pistol
bullet and the razor have both
failed in many important instances.
Water ia treacherous. It has often de¬
feated the best laid scheme. The rope is
too vulgar. Tbe fact is, nothing has yet
been invented which ia calculated to give
entire satisfaction in cases of Intended
suicide.
" OLD FOLKS AT HOME."

Long before Nilsson's fame aa a osn-
tatrice had come bounding over the
ocean's billows or rang along the cable
wires beneath the ocean 'a depths; before
mankind bowed In rapt wonder and
delight in the presence of heavenly melo¬
dy, the old fogies of a city, illustrating
the taste cf the people for the divine art,
adopted ss the designation of their be¬
loved association, the name, "Old Folks
at Home." They gathered about Nilsson
when she sang, and when the sad, solemn
strains of bewitching music awept by the
ancient of days were lapped in the joys of
eivsium and the very name oi uia
Folks at Home " became divine. It was
curious to hesr the oldest of these aged
men when wending devious ways to
suburban homea. after Nilsson went awav
induleintt in musical soliloquise and the
burden of each song of each old humming
" bird " was " The Old f oiks at Home.

Tbe largest crowd that waa seen in any
public place in this city since the re¬
hearsal of the children for the Sunday
school celebration, waa gathered at the
Greenlaw Opera House last night, to wit¬
ness the exercises of Miss Higbee'a public
high school. About fourteen hundred peo¬
ple were in the building by the time the
curtain rose on
A SCBSTK Or B SALTY,
such aa never graced that stage before,
ihe curtain rose some time after eight.
The whole school, some forty or fifty
young ladies, were at the foot-lights,
hardly any one so oold as not to be moved
by the beautiful scene that was presented
by this bouquet of living beauty. The first
exercise of the evening was a sot. g
in chorus, "This Happy Day,"
which was beautifully sung by the young
ladies.
The salutation, a paper on " The Art of
Pleasing," was read by Mis Laura Flack.
In this little piece Miss Laura made some
sensible remarks Which the morose would
perhaps profit by heeding. The worst of
it is, that moat cf the attempts made to
please people in this worid.arise from pure
selfishness. Very few think of pleasing
those who stand most in need of it. The
reader could have done more justice to
her very elegant composition if she were
ot a less delicate and sensitive tempera¬
ment. Tnis delicacy was evinced a few
timea fn a slight tremor of voice and one
or two little hesitations ; bat her heroism
was evinced in the manner in which ahe
atruggled against and overcame her emo¬
tions. She was rewarded by votary bou¬
quets, which she received with a gratified
am lie.
Then came another chorus " Winter
Night," by the school. It was remsrkable
what soft, pare tones were noticed in that
chorus of sweet voices. The volume of
music rolled up and out over the vast
hall as if there were but one voice.
MISS HALEY.
This young lady looka well. She read
her essay rather quaintly. It was entitled
"He builded better than he knew." The
idea of this splendid essay was that, owing
o some mysterious arrangement of Fro v-
idecce, people and whole nations are
made to build better than they intend.
Tbe muscular men of the Babylonish pile
were made to build up a number of lan¬
guages, owing to the larynx, harassing
"hollering" that they did, which little cir-
eumstance sgain compelled 'hem to go i ll
in squads carpet-bagging over the earth,
and thoa lay the foundations of several
empires, and theoriginators of a few fierce
conflicts. In those conflicts there is no
te'ling how many shoddy fortunes were
built up by contractors lor leather, shields
and ti.nt-headtd spears. The essay dis¬
played some thinking, not to be found in
the common reading of young ladies.
Miss Patton.who had come forward with
Ida and supported heron the right daring
the reading of her essay, had a piece of
her own which she read also. It waa en¬
titled " Necessity of paying attention to
things aa weii aa buotts. Miss Patton
has the advantage cf a remarkably pretty
face, elegant figure and fine voice. She
reads well. These valuable qualinca'ionB
at once enabled her to capture the hearts
of the audience acd secured her a rapt
attention, so that there was no point she
made which did not receive a considera¬
tion worthy of it. Attention to things is,
unfortunately, the prevailing sin, and
not attention to books. The essay was
a first rate thing for the cloe study of
teachers They will find many useful
suggestions in it.
More chorus, ' In my swift.boat." The
same remarks which we made at the
opening of this article will apply here.
The singing was equally good throughout.
MISS ELLA M'MAHON.
Our learned reporter was conquered by
this young lady. H had prepared to pass
her over with a few lines, thinking that
tbe essay which ahe came forward to de¬
liver, would be a giiiish talk, about drees
and things of that sort, but before she
finished, aye, in the middle of the essay,
when she said that every unsuccessful
struggle for liberty is characterized as a
rebellion, he changed his opiaion. He re¬
marked to the end of bis new pencil,
"there is some thought here or else sound
reading, which is the next best thing, and
we toast notice 'Ells." The pencil gave an
approving nod of consent. Miss Ella, in
the first, place is evidently a girl oi much
culture. She haa an extraordinary sweet
face, a soft, winning voice, finely modu¬
lated. Her elocution is, without being
remarkable, very nearly perfect for the
purposes ot quiet, philosophic reading.
Her essay was an efiort or thought . well
aa resdiug; and in following her one
insensibly forgets the style, ceases to
criticise the manner of her charming
words and constructing sentences and
becomes absorbed in the thoughts to which
the filr reader gave utterance. Miss
Ella's essay would do honor to some of
our monthlies.
The "Barcaralli," from Von Weber's
"Obercn," was so beautifully, so sweetly
sung, that the audience wanted an encore,
which, however, could not be given.
MISS MABTHA k tnki.s
is one of tbe stars of the school. Oar
learned man expected something deep
and dry from her, on account of his
knowledge of her mathematical acquire¬
ments, but he was mistaken her essay
was not of tho dry sort, not a piece ot
dogmatic writing, but rather a beautiful
train of reasoning, in a slyle of simple
eiegsnce that Addison, if he were living,
would not have failed to study. Her
subject was "Things that ire always
lovely." It was decidedly the prettiest
discourse oi the evening, and was wor
thily applauded.
Then there was more chorus, after which
IT. Maury, tbe f resident ot the Board of
K location, presented diplomas to the
following young ladies, who finished
their education under Miss Higbee:
Miss Mary Kunkle, Miss Martha Run
kle, Ida Haley, Ella McMahan, Laura
I lack, and Miss Mollis Patton. What Dr
Maury said wa uot caught by the atten¬
tive ear of our reporter.
scpebiittes,dest leath
made a short address to the pupils, uow
bachelors of arts. He said that the parch¬
ment which they held in Iheir hands had
converted tbem don't be alarmed, young
ladies into" Bachelors of Art." He made
some facetious remarks upon the seeming
anomaly, and then went on to give some
sound advice to the young ladies on the
importance of cultivating the home
industries. He instanced the case
of an English queen who kept a
aiary oi now ane spent tne day
of her girlhood He read the record ot
one day. She rose st four and continued
to do things daring the day, such things
as our superb young ladies ot this lasli
ionable day wonld consider eminently
menial, including the feeding of tbe hogs
and poultry. He said that "weave,"
"w-of" and "wife," had the same root in
the Anglo Saxon, indicating plainly
enough that it was considered the duty
of a wife to provide clothing for her
family: in illustration of this position, he
showed that tbe word 'spinster,' a term
for maids in the Anglo Saxon, was de¬
rived from the common occupation of un¬
married females, in the days or "auid
lang yne," which was that of spinning.
Here he gave some classical account of
how tbe gods and goddesses of ancient
timea regarded the various industries.
None of them were idlers He then spoke
to them strongly on the importance
of taking eare of time ; told
tbem of the evil of using it in a frivolous
manner. He told them to cultivate their
minds, but also to cnltivate such home
virtues as cooking cheers, and not to
disdain an occasional drill with the broom
handle, but to be sure and not use that
weapon for any bat legitimate purposes.
He then spoke to them upon that most
important feature in t.ie lives of women,
the cultivation ot tho heart. He
paid a high tribnto to woman in
general in consequence of the benign
influence ahe exerts on the rude and
cruel nature of men. I .', said he, the world
was left to the exclusive control of man, so
vindictive, cruel and bloody ia be in his na¬
ture that the earth would be deluged in
blood, and the human race would soon
caaae to exist.

The priae ka writing was awarded to Ml
Carrie Bruce. Ail tbe competitors sent
their specimens to Leddin, without any
name attached, and he decided. Thia was
a port-folio. Dr. Taylor bestowed these
prizes in a graceful manner. He said:
"Although, bv chance, this honor has
fallen to your lot, yet let It be remembered
that only by true merit ooaid yon have
obtained this ditinotion. He, in whose
behalf I deliver :aia beautifu. token, cou¬
ple with it the wish that the record it

nure aa the native ore from which its
Jaty is wrought."

formal manner thst Impressed and grati¬
fied the yo-ong ladies.
Misa Mary Kunkle read the valedictory
addresa, which we are sorry we eannot
print, as we deaigned, owing to the late¬
ness of the hour and the fallness of onr
columns. The audience were sent away
with a "good night" chorus by the school.
