THE MEMPHIS SUNDAY APPEAL.
ESTABLISHED 1840. MEMPHIS, TENK, SUISrXA.Y, DECEMBER 24, 1871. "VOL. XXXI. NUMBEB lO TW.B inidPAL lUCTIM. The contest for the mayoralty U Anal ly one between John Johnson and John Losgne. The advocates of reguisr ward convention hare bean laboring for several daya to brine forward Colonel H. 0. Young aa a candidate for mayor. Hia great personal popularity would hare made him a formidable asplrsn, bat we understand he haa positively declined the hsnor which his irienda would oonfer upon him, and we further learn that the advocates of a convention will have no otndldate in the field, leaving each man to vote aa hia Judgment may dictate. From oar knowledge of the character of those who have advocated a convention, we believe they will not hesitate In a con teat between two anch candidates aa John Johceon and John Loague. We know they are boneat men, who have the good of the city at heart, and had rather aee the offloe of mayor in the hands of an honest man than in those of a chronic offloe eeeker, who, in the abort apace ol ten years, baa made a colossal fortune oat of oflees from which true men generally re tire poorer than when they entered. The gulf between the two men la quite as wide mentally and morally aa It is In honesty and integrity. We have only differed from our life-long partisan associates in believing I bat a mwmtcpal election involv ed no question ol party politics, xbe friends ol a convention, without assent ing to this proposition, can have no diffi culty new in cooperating with us. Of the two candidates for the may a'.ty, one la a Democrat, the otiie is a Radical, and If the friends of a convention were actuated, aa we believe they we.e, by a desire to promote Lbe sue oeas of party, they cannot hesitate be tween an heneat Democrat and an unscru pulous Kadical. We respect the motives which marked the advocates of a con vention, looking, aa they do, with veneration upon anything to which the name ol Democrat attaches, a the Hindoo gazes with awe upon hia deity. We trust to stand shoulder to shoulder with them ardor the banner which the hoau of Democracy may decide to to '.low hereafter, involving party isanes But from one end ol the Union to the other the people have indicated a determina tion to take their local elect lens out of pol itics, or. rather to select their own candl dates. Believing that John Johnaon nad made an honest, iaithfui and incorrupti ble mayor, that the Interest of the city required hia re-election, and fearing, aa there was evident reason lor fearing, that a convention would be packed to defeat him, we joined the people in their support of Mr. Jchnson, and hoped he wculu be re-elected just as the majors of Nashville, laouieville, Boston, Chicago, Worcester and other cities had been elected. In this course we ware actuated solely and entirely by a desire to promote the public good. We conoede equal honesty to thoaa who have disa greed with us and we see no reason why this difference should prevent a future onion and harmonious actk n of Demo crats. From our knowledge of the men who hare opposed the policy of the Af pial we cannot believe they will con tribute to lbs triumph of a Kadical whose election all moat agree would be a public v5.tX.0.,-.ffl!91.""...ejtletn was another advance of an c report- :, -all oai ft "quirt" maikt.

The enterprise is practicable, and eminently well calculated to develop the resources of the country through which the road will pass, aa well aa build op the aeterial in tarsals of oar rapidly-growing elty, destined at no distant day to be the emporium of southwestern trade. mm a ho we that ea atr-llne from Mem i to Oxford will psaa very near Inde- i and Tyro, In Marshall county. , continued beyond Oxford, will pea Pittaborough, Ihe capital of Cal- and thence to Meridian, penetrat ing a rich country, almost cqul-dlatant between Forrest's road and the Mississip pi Central.

PEft.ONAL.mE8. New You, December M Tbe sixty sixth anniversary of the New England society waa celebrated this svenlng by a d inner at Dslmonino's. Counsellor Joseph U. Cboat presided, and after the aabalan tiala had been disposed of, delivered a very humorous address. He announced the first toaat to be the " Day we Cele brate," to whloh the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher responded He spoke of the vsried beauties of New England scenery ana InduBtrv, and the honesty of lta peo ple. Referring to the Pilgrim Fathers, he said they brought over with them many of the errors and superstitions whicn ex isted In England at tbe time, bat left more behind them. Through time these were eradicated, and there were no more burning witches, whloh waa the pilgrims' greatest snd most Irrational superstition. Beecher then turned to politics, snd said It should be preached from the palpil as muofi as toe gospel is; this tbe pilgrim fathers did, and he approved their ideas this regard. He regretted that the Kvernment and the church had come to so fsr separated as they are In these days. When New England waa coioniasd it was the custom to build the church first st s pi see where it waa intended to build a city. Every man who became a resident of the new city waa a member of tbe church, which became tbe local legisla ture. In conclusion be referred to the lste reform movements In this city, snd said it was the result of the Mew England Ides of honesty and economy. The next toaat waa, "The President of the United States," which was drank with bonor. In offering the toast of the "City of New York," the president said sofficient re sponse had been made on the 7th of Novemb r last. Governor Jewell, of Massschusetts, re sponded briefly to the toaat of "New England." Dr. Bellows spoke on the New England character, and said to get to the root of New England character, we must go to the mother country of Englsnd. The strength snd force ot character were char acteristics of the great Anglo Saxon race. Surrounded aa they were by tbe aea, with a view confined, they had to look into themselves and learn tbe weaknesses of their nature, and strengthen them. Such were the pilgrims who came over In the aiajnjwer, and made tbemsalvs the nueclus of this great republic, and tbe In fluenoe of whoee examples In life, religion and politics is still felt, and whose ideas still permeate the public mind. "American Diplomacy" waa ree ponded to by Hon. William M. Everts, who, ic tbe course of his address, referred to the Washington treaty. The Anglo-Saxon character, he said, settled by reason and treaty what other nations would go to war about. Wisdom la still better than the weapons of war. A republic shou.d be for peace always, and so effect harmo ny, happiness snd prosperity among i s people. "Oar Common Schools" waa re sponded to by Prof. Northrop. Among other toasta were "The Army and Navy," "The Press," "The State of New York," and "Oar Invited Guests." Among tbe latter were General Hawley, General Mc Dowell, Governor Morgan and Professor N orthrop.

Editor Appeal Perhsps a line or two from this section ol tbe "Old Dominion" msy be of some intereat to tbe many read ers or tne appbal. me muan -discussed consolidation of the Pennsylvania Central railroid with Mabone'a railroad connec tions extending from Norfolk to Bristol la eliciting much attention from railroad men and from certain journalists la this section of the State, all of whom express their aversion to and tbe lnfeaaibillty of suca a "curious" plan, in an editorial ar ticle the Lynchburg News ssys this oon- lemplated oonsolidstlon is s "queer rail road combination," aid styles a recent editorial of tbe Appxai. in reference to this matter which we think was able, and evinced far -seeing sagacity as "rath er curious." Now, we think It would he an emin-ntly feasible snd wise plan for these two lines to consolidate, and then, after this is effected, to farther lengthen the consolidated limi, extending it through the Soath to the Mis sissippi river, and ultimately, aa the Appkal wisely suggested, to the Ps clfl" By this means It would traverse lands abounding in inexhaustible stores of wesltb ; and lbe cities and towns along the mate derive vast benefits from it. What It la that causes some to view this import ant matter in a different light we can't tell. The No. folk Journal, we may re mark, enstuMitf, ssys "tbe idea of a junc tion between Scott and Mahone between thn Pennsylvania Central and Virginia railroad with the purpoae, of oo-opera-iu.oj"st be received in this locality wiiaVamrr.jment and Incredulity." A great many, however, think that this consolidation ot railway lines will finally be cGiieunimatea, tho opposition and un willingness of certain Journalists to the contrary notwithstanding. We say, then, let the noble work go on; and like the "Pontic sua, whoee icyOurrents and com pulsive oourse ne'er fee la retiring ebb," a 'vance, unrestrained, lo an early suc cessful accomplishment.
