THE MEMPHIS UA.IX.Y APPEAL-8ATUEDAT, DBCEMBHR 33. 1871.
.HEX miS APPEAL OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE CITY SATURDAY M0RNIN8, : : DEC. 23, 1871 FOR MAYOK, JOHN JOHNSON t ZBA1. m BUM. The New York Am says it ha been urged in paUifction of the excessive taxation im poaed on such of the reocujtructed States as hare suflered under carpet-bag rule i bat a large proportion cf the money raised by this means has been applied to purposes of education, and that one of tae strongest reasons for the opposition which has been manifested to the mess urea of the carpet-1 aggers is to be found In the antipathy of the Southern people to a comprehensive system of tree schools. As this view oi the matter is calculated to influence public opinion in the North to some extent, it is worth while to look Into some of the workings of the carpet bag system of education. In Georgia, as formerly in Tennessee, the appropriations for free schools are of the most liberal character, including all the poll-tax of the State, which is one dollar for each voter; the liquor-tax, the circus and ahow- tax and one-half the net income of the State road. The amount of money col lee ted from these sources cannot be defi nitely ascertained in the preeent disor dered condition of the financial accounts ol Georgia, but it must.be near 9900,000 year, or perhaps more. This money, by express provisions of the oonatitution and the code, is set apart and devoted to the purposes oi common schools, and can not legally be used for any other object. Indeed.the constitution expressly declares that no poll-tax shall be levied except for eau"elicnal purposes. With such resources at the command of the S.ate authorities we ought to see a flourishing system of free schools in suc cessful operation; but an inquiry as to the precise disposition ol the fund results in the extraornlnary discovery that every dollar of it has been spent by Bullock and his gang as fast as collected, in ex travagant and unlawful ways; a .large portion of it having been applied to tee ing lawyers, subsidizing the press, and paying a aubservient legislature. In di rect defiance of the constitution a bill was passed at Bullock's suggestion, and approved by him, diverting the money raised for schools to ordinary purposes ; and in accordance with this action of his negro legislature, Bullock took the school money, which be squandered with the same recklessness that has characterized his other financial operations. Not only this, but every dollar of the old school fund was wasted ha a similar manner, and this is the way In which free educa tion is promoted where Grantism has been omnipotent. In others of the reconstructed States an ejected zeal for education has been made to furnish pretext for the most extrav agant taxation, and when the facts in re lation to the dispjaition of the money so raised come to be investigated, there reason to believe that equally shameful developments will be made. In Texas, in addition to the regular annual income provided by law for the support of com mon schools, the Davis administration imposed a direct tax of $3,00t),c00 for the professed purpose of building school houses; and the expenditure of all the school funds is intrusted to officials Ap pointed by the governor, who, the Hous ton Telegraph says, have never given any bonds or security whatever for a faithful use of the millions of dol lars intrusted to their charge. Under the existing school laws of Texas the governor, the state superintendent, who is appointed by the governor, and another appointee of the governor, have absolute control of the whole educational system of the State: and in the selection of all the district supervisors, county examin ers, local directors, and teachers, amount' ing in all to about five thousand persons, no one but the go ,-ernor and those who receive their authority directly from him, have any voice whatever. It will at once be seen what an engine for political cor ruption is thus given into the hands of (Governor Davis, and the course of that official has been such that it is not un charitable to assume that he has used it as auch to the extent of his ability. Of ail the abuses which have been per petrated by the thieving carpet-baggsrs who are the representatives and main support of Grantism in the South, none is more deserving of the reprobation of honorable men, of whatever political par ty, than the proceedings of those hypo critical knaves who have made a pre tended seal for universal education a screen for schemes of villainous plunder, or sought to use the machinery ostensi bly designed to promote free schools, as a means for maintaining worthless and corrupt partisans in offices they have dia Kaoed, end in the exercise of powers which they have shamefully misapplied. abort lines completed we will have through Somerville, Jackson and Hunt ingdon, a shorter route to Nashville 1 1, a a ut now in o Deration. But tksrs Is a narrow-gauge road which will soon be finished from St. Louis to Cairo. It may be advisable ;for the Jackson and MemDhia railroad company to unite with the St. Louis and Cairo company in extending the road from Jackson direct t Cairo, as well as with the Jackson and Tiiiii in River railroad company in ex ttndlog the road through Columbia and Sbelbyville to McMinnville. But (these are matters to be determined by the com piny after the construction of the road from Jackson to Memphis is assured Jackson comprehends the importance of these connections, and feels that ahe can not risk the loss of the trade of Madison, Hardeman and Fayette counties on the west, and of Henderson and uacatur on the east, which will be secured by these The completion of the road from Hunt iagdon to Jackson, which is oertaln, will give Huntingdon increased importance, and cause that town to extend a road to Lexington, if Jackson stands still, while Brownsville will carry a road into Madl son, and take the trade of all the western part of Madison county. The intelligent and enterprising ci'.lzans of Jackson see these dangers, and intend to guard against them. Tbey feel an inter est in the prosperity of all towns, and wish them success in their various enter prism We hope thst the road to Boiivar may be extended to the Tennessee river, and thence through Middle Tennessee, either by way of Lawrenosburg and Pu laakl. or by Columbia. Whether this will be done by the company owning the road from Bolivar to Memphis, or by another company, it is for the parties interested to determine. There should be no conflict betireen the Memphis and Jackson and the Memphis and Bolivar air-line railroad compa nies. They should act in harmony. In this way these roads will sooner meet with success, and secure assistance from this city and county. There will be no county aid given to either company until the roads are consolidated between Memphis and Soroervills. Memphis would hare Boiivar and Jackson meet at Somerville. This done, the task of completion is easy Dry Goods GREAT ATTRACTIONS IN DRY 600DS! Holidays! A.T B.

Hesky Thbodors Tuckebmas died at his residence, in New York city, on Sunday last. The announcement, which reached us lime days ago by tele graph, will everywhere b e received with sincere regret, for Mr. Tuckerman, as the New York Evening Post well says, was as warmly esteemed and his writings as highly valned in the Southern States as in New England or the West. We have the same high authority for the assertion that Mr. Tuckerman was a man of letters in the best sense of that term ; learned with' out pedantry, refined without affectation, pursuing his vocation consistently and conscientiously, with honor to himself and credit to the literature of the oouc try. Though he had lived much abroad, especially in Italy, for whose scenery traditions, poetry and people he betrayed a peculiar fondness, Mr. Tuckerman was distinctively American, proud of the past and hopeful of the future, and strove all that he wrote to elevate the taste and inspire the hearts of his country men. He was, indeed, what the title of one of his books pointed him out, an optimist, and his confidence in the proper working of our political institutions snd the wholesome ordering of our social life was ss strong ss his belief in the future inte: lectusl progress of America for which he labored. He was voluminous, but nover careless, and his style was remarkablii for its flexibility, purity and grace. In pri vate life he was most estimable, and be erjoyed in a high degree the respect aid attachment of his contemporaries in au thorship. With all the most eminent American wri -era of his lime, his relations were intimato. He will be long remem bered as the ripe scholar and the amiable gentleman, and the labors of his life will pass into the literary history of the land.

There was reur lolly more sublime than tbat of Oram's representatives in the United States senate. Suppose Mayor Johnson closed the comptroller's snd treasurer 'a doors, and denitd tbe people access to these offices? Suppose he ob jected, when bankers and reporters for the press sought to learn the financial condition of the city? Suppose it wss suspected that he has thieves in his em picyment, and objected to thorough in Teatltation at the hands of the municipal legialslurs? All wonld say that the mayor wss unworthy of contilence; thst he had been bumming around at Long Branch with Tweed snd Connolly snd Murphy and Tammany, while his subor d. nates everywhere were plundering the people. Suppose he had been the recip lent of town lota and country farms and of pretty villas at watering-place and that those who gsve money and prop erty were ciothed with hooora and office Would we not say that Mayer Johnson is a confessed rogue, and vote against him Honest, good cltlzsns wonld concur in this course of action. Uow, then, can the honest people of the oountry be induced to snpport U ran t ? There most be foul nesa unutterable in offices snd depart ments at Washington when shrewd men likeConkUng and Morion, under ezecu tive inspiration, object to investigations proposed by T umbull. Grant's cham piona thus beco i e, in the eyes of honest people, his most effective enemies, even as would be Mayor Johnson's friend n they sought to evsde inquiry into ha. effi cial conduct. The strong feeling of distrust and ap prehension now pervading the public mind in respect to the corruption of the administration will be increased and intensified by the tone of debates in the Senate. The crude and defective prop oases introduced in the different braches of the government are the natural consequence ol aubatituting tbe hasty and peremptory habits of the soldier for the orderly management of the trained civilian and statesman. But Grant's ignorance and inexperience, which enable unscrupulous men by whom he is surrounded, to use the power ol the executive for their own selfish pur- p ea, are of trifling importance in com parlson with his reckless disregard of Is gai and constitutional restraints, and hia flagrant nepotism, which is bringing dis grace upon the country.
