Happy Christmas.
Tbe Appeal ereets alllta eubscribera
Wltb "a happy and a merry Christmas "
All tbe banks atd brokers effloas, and
all tbe public offices will be closed to-day.
Tbe Sabbath quiet yesterday was un
disturbed In Mempbi. save by tba cracks
of Joyous pistols and (be merry rattle of
Dre BBDaaBBBBj
The new machinery to repair the re
cent damage to tbe Belle Le arrived over
the Louis villa road yesterday, and will
be put lo at once.
Every readtr cf tbe Afpbal should
read "Tbe First Christmas," tbe story of
glad linings ana great J ly, on our Oral
page. It is the beat etory ever printed.
On Wednesday and Thursday even
ings next tbe pupiia of St, Patrick's school
will have an interesting entertainment a?
tbe Assembly hall. They will get up a
eeriea of tableaux vlvants, music sod
dramatics on a grand and attractive plan.
Several people who were out buggy
riding yesterday aternoon made gr. v

peneBoed irorn lire crackers expiod.iw
under their horses noses, frignteoing
tbem into a break heck pace in every ln-
We or me to wish our patrons all
A happy Christmas day.
And hope to find them vary well
And prosperous and gay ,
We hope their store oi wc rldly
la large enough, at least.
To afford Ibetn all abundantly,
II not a teeming feast.
To the old, whose rase is nearly run,
We say bent good cheer.
Remember Jeans who was born
This day, that ye might tear
Nothing. 11 ys in Him do ttnal,
And In His patbs abide.
For then with the young and happiest
Ye may Joy side by aide.
And to the youth, whose pulse beats strong.
We. too, would say to tbee.
That in thv wild, delicious mirth
This day. that ye may bs
KM forgetful of me time.
But pause In tby career
Of please, re leaallng, and to God
Give thought, and love, and f rayer.
Think of the poor, me orphan sad.
The little glri and boy;
Go aeek them, and, with kindly alms,
Fell, biting w.ntd'ttroy.
Go, seek the widow's lonely hut,
And lei the l'gbt of Day
Blend with ihe light ol Charily,
And drive ber gloom away.
Go. aeek the poor, relieve their wants,
That lhey may also feel
Brighter mis merry Christmas day,
And blets thee for my weaL
And God will bless thee loo, for He
loves well the "friendless poor.
Thon, for his sake, mis fining day.
To them give of thy store.
And let us, also not lorget
Our oountry 's ills our Stale
And pray to God ere long lo break
The fellers oi her fate,
That bind us unrelentingly.
And circle us around,
Wim donbt and apprehension dread,
Where Joy erst was found
Now, gentlemen, and ladles lair.
And children btlghtwilh Joy,
Have you uol -ometnlng yoa may spare
For the poor carrier Boy t
"Cnrtetnias comes but onoe a year.
The carrier" ev'ry day;
jh ! havB't you eometnln vou may spare
To cheer him on the way?
In summer's heat. In winter's cold,
in storm, In rain, in shine,
The Appxal and Its carrier boy
Are ever iound "in line;'
Found prompc and true and ready, too,
A'er to delend toe right,
Expose the wrong, and for our town
Work hard boin day and night.

Bob Good, known by all men who fre
queni tne river ahore and Front street,
was ail vi Bed cf the dangerouB sickness ol
hia son si college in Michigan. Mr. Good
left ihla morning by rail for Ann Harbor.
It is said that "an unole of George
Francle Train hag made oath that George
is a iuuatic, and asked to be appointed
over him." Maybe this kind uncle wauls
to direct the sale ol Gaorge'B Omaha lols
and may be not.
Colonel O. H. Btmun, Alabama;
ColunelG M. Govan, Mississippi: Mr. I.
J. Filxpatrick, Baltimore; Mr. C. P. Da

honors have been awarded tbe name and
fame of Edmund Burke through ihe past

CITV POLITICS.
A Proper Man.
Mr. Norton, the candidate for council
man In the Fourth ward, is one of the
clearest -headed, most active, energetic
bQriness men in the city. His personal
habits and thoughtful, quiet, tireless at
entton to every day duties deeignste him
aa a fit representative of one of the mos.
inte ligenl constituencies of Memphis.
tie is one or ine son who win wj
to those who have enough intelligence
and virtue to estimate properly tbe qual
ities that should distinguish a city legis
lator.
rhllewepby ol the Bualneae.
W. B. Martin, Esq , a lawyer of first,
no attainment and unsullied personal
fame, has been induced by many of the
best citixens of his (the fifth) ward to be
come a candidate for councilman. If tbe
twctiln would select candidates who can
ana will serve the city, rather than them
selves. Mr. Martin tbcuia neeieotea. ii
i he office is to give honor to tne tnsn, Mr.
Manin should not be cbosen. It has, un
fortuuatolv, happened that candidates for
office sometimes appear who would lis
honored by an election. The people
should seek the man, and uot the man the
Deonle. In tbe latter oase we people are
always swindled.

ST. PBTEB'S.
Father Burke, a had been announced,
proa shad at laat mass In St. Peter's

lect congregation. He read tbe gospel of
tbe day from the nrst chapter ol St. John :
"I am tbe voice of one orying in tbe des-

ere, oao. xiie iiiaauau, ca.u ---, uui.ua,
the season of advent, it waa the habit of
tbe church, by ber teat thing, her cere
monies and her liturgies, lo sound the
note of preparation fur the proper
oelebratlon of tbe great event which
la oommemorated on Christmas day tie
coming of the Son of Man. To appreci
ate what a great blessing waa bestowed
on mankind by that coming, it would be
neoeaaary to reflect on the neoeaeity there
was for it. When a great gain lollows on
a great loss, to fully appreciate the one
it La neeeaaery to realise the extent ol
the other. The loss that man BUffared in
the fall of Adam was dwelt upon with
singular and felicitous effect. God created
tbe world and made it a paradise, filled
the earth, tbe sea and the air with living
things and oountless forms of beauty, and
then placed man thereon, clothed with
the majesty of imperial power, and made
in the likeness and image of his creator.
Tbe intellectual and pbysioal capacities of
man were fully gratified, and those capac
ities were all pure, noble, holy, because,
according to tbe rule of the Creator. He
could look into tba very nature and attri
butes of God and discover tbe infinite
harmony of His law. His conversation
waa with the Great Eternal. He felt no
pain, no sorrow, no apprehension, no fear
no want. There was nothing but internal
joy and gladness, snd external pea e ard
narmony. The divine music thrilled hia
ear and tbe divine beauty gladdened his
eye. He waa not to experience any pain
no tear of sorrow waa ever to dim bis
eye. Hia path was etrewn with dowers
bis way peace and plenty. Ho was nover
to taste the pang of death, but to pass on
through a worlu of earthly dellghte lo the
full possession of the Infinite Beautltude
of toy. Every thing to him was a source
of happiness. The whistling winds, the
budding flower, and the rising morn were
sources oi aengnt, because be was in hur
mony with them, and there was no jsr, no
incongruity; no unniiness, no discordant
element in the universe. He was endovcod
with free will It is one of the features of
bis being in which be was like to God;
and in as much aa God wss sovereign,
was king, was lorn, homage from tins no
ble creature, man, was India pensi cue
mat uomage was obedience, this God
required of him. Such waa the condi
tion of the primitive man; sucb
was to be tne condition of the
human race. But man fell; be re
volted against God ; he said in effect, "I
will nol serve." He destroyed tbe bar
mony that before existed. He became a
rebel in God's house: and In as much as
God loves Hia own law with infinite love
for it ia infinitely good, he la
compelled to hate what is op
posed to it with infinite hatred the
punishment, therefore, due to man for he
rebellion was the infinite wrath ot trod
Infinite because God is infinite. He can
not be one thing in one place and another
thing in another place. Eternal, because
God is elernr', he cannot be one tbiug
now and a uifforent thing at anoihe. , ime.
the wrath ol God agalnBt crime was in
finite and eternal. Adam became corrupt,
sin entered into his blood. His nature
was vitiated. He was a child of wrath.
There was no more harmony for him.
He walked no more with God, he con
versed no more with Him. All things
changed. Sin waa in the world. God
withdrew his presence from the face of
man and did not again reveal himself for
four thousand years.
What we lost in the great revolt of
Adam was restored to us In the coming
oi t nriai. God again visited tho earth.
He appeared as a man to repair the inju
ry done by Adam, to atone lor the revolt,
to makepeace be.ween heaven and earth.
Tbe wrath of God was infinite and eter
nal. It could be satisfied with nolbiug
loss than an infinite and eternal vie im.
Infinite uaiicd demanded it. God is ihe
ruler of tbe universe. His rule must be in
finitely lust, and thai justice demanded
an Infinite reparation fur tbe injaiy dyne.
The atonement must always be
equal to the irjury, or it is im
perfect. Christ's ' work on earth waa
a full atonement, it was equal to tbe in
jury. It is perfect. Christ caice to de
stroy the reign of sin, to relieve men. of
bis weakness ; to hoai him of hi infirm
ity. He aame in tbe cbaracter ot tbe
fallen Adam to restore mankind to the
happiness lost. He was clothed in the
weakness of our humanity ; he cried as a
child; he suffered the pangs of want. He
dwell In the corrupted and Inharmonious
world. He .talked to men, He touched
them and they were healed. Hi) was
merciful to the fallen Magdalen. He Buf
fered. He wss made, as tbe prophet
said, the servant ol the slavo and an out
cast. He was a worm ol the earth. This
is the great mystery, that God uoold so
suffer; that God should so leave the realm
of supernal beautitude and clothing
himself in human flrsh and human w eak
ness to redeem man from his fallen aiate,
and again restore him to he favor of the
Father. Here waa the great triumph of
infinite love over infinite hatred, i be tri
umph of mercy oyer justice.
'Ine very eloquent preacher then went
on to show bow' Christ continues to dwell
with men snd to unite himself daily wltb
them in the holy communion, and to
abow that all who desire may, by this
mesne, be restored to the tost dignity and
nobility and purity of the original Adam
of the Garden.

Bloody Affair sit the Mull road Camp
sat tbe Hollyford Mosul.
We hsve the particular, from an au
thentic source, of a bloody affair, perhaps
murder, at tbe railroad camp on the Hol
lyford road, five miles from town, which
occurred yesterday at noon, and resulted
in the death oTa negro laborer named BUI
Woods and h'.u partner, whose name we
oould not learn. This camp belonga to
Donovan dt Co., contractors upon tbe
Selma, Marion and Memphis railroad, of
which Genera Forr;st is president. At
the time of the fracas, Mr. Donovan was
absent near the city on a vlait of business
to General Forrest, and a Mr. Runnels,
formerly an employe of Stanton on the
Alabama and Chattanooga railroad, and
who has been acting as clerk for Donovan,
was lsft in charge. Soon after Donovan
had left for General Fjrreat'a resi
dence, two of the negro laborer quar
relled over tbe result of a game of
cards. Runnels interfa ed and with diffi
culty prevented a tracts. Aa men of hia
class and occupation often do under like

dered a mule caught, and rode In search
of Donovan, to whom he said that he
killed tbe negroes in self-defence; that
they hsd sttemptexl to mob him, and be
was forced lo shoot. He then rode off,
and has no', since been beard c ti . Mr.

tbe articles thst are profusely and beauti

Colonel Cummins, of the English army,
upon "Hunting in India." Another is
upon the "Wonders ol the Yosemltc and

Tbe idea has gone abroad that the Mem
phis Gaslight company waa ready to
abandon what la termed the nsphtha pro
cess in the manufacture of gas. There
never was a greater fallacy.
When we consider the material used
tbe essential oil of petroleum, scarcely
uieruuautauie ior any oinoruse ihe rich
ness of the gas produced, requiting, when
used as naphtha gas alone, to be diluted
with forty-two per cent of air to red nee it
to something like tbe sttndsrd of gas
t measured oy candle-power) of the tinest
r.ngiisu cannet coat, the rapidity, car
lalncy, and, under proper oircumstanoes,
the economy with which it can be pro
duced, it use must bo re girded as an ad
vsii-d movement in gas manufacture
which should receive the attention of both
prac tical and gcienlibc men.
We naye iound It beat to ua this nro-
cess in conjunction with tbe manufacture
or coal gu; first, because we hsve a
market for the resudtl products, oake and
tar, at fair price. Second, bociuse our
works snd apparatus were constructed for
the distillation of bituminous coals.
ihe late oomplalnta about the cuslitv of
gas suppu- a 10 tne city grew out of the
tact that on account ot the stock ot naph
tha running abort, and some changes be
ing tuade at the works, the gas in the
holders for a few nights waa nearly pure
coai gas, quiie qnai lo the tanfjard for
merly produced by this company. The
change from the u.e of naphtha was as
perceivaoie and marked as 11 the burners
bad undergone a pariial eclipse, and com
plaints as natural as if one accustomed to
glasses hsd attempted to lay tbem aside,
suaaeniy.
By a slight change made in the oonnec
tions with our naphtha gss meter, admit.
ting only pure napb'ha gas into tbe mixer
we can vt lth ease ii J ict snch a qtiaaluy of

given BBBBMMBnB. nui absorbing to a great
ex ent the trace of sulphuretted hvdro
gun which always imparts a bad oeffar to
too uwtiuw ,a.
This we do not clslna ss a discovery bjt
the experimental tost of the use of pure
napnma was most interesting and sails
factory.
On the evening of the 20th, about four
o'clock, we bad succeeded in getting ready
for trying the effect on a large scale, ol
Brass ei w". in sSBMSrMrtrj ss Baasjsjisni
diffusion, without regard to specific grav
lty. Not tbe uriform intermingling of
gases, tor mat was a known sclent hi fact,
but ice time rrquired for a oompltte mix
lure ot gases through the mains (if ex
tended) tweDty-eiglit miles In length.
Tho holders contain-d about 170,000 feet
of gas, with a make of about fifteen to
eighteen thousand feet per hour, when we
oommenced turning in the pure uaphth
gas (running only two benches of 8a
and makicg at the n'e of about eight
thousand cu Die teec per hour. The poo
tomster (Sugg's make, London,) mess
ured tbe coai gas then In the mains at
lourteen candle-power.
As soon as we observed from the tea
l'ghts tbe naphtha gas wss filling the
pipes, we noted the candl. power of the
gas in the street mains to begin rapidly
and steadily to ascend, and In twenty
minutes more, we found it was eighteen
candle-power.
Going immediately to tbe offloe, in tbe
noart o' the city, to note the effect there,
we found every one irquiring what bad
occurred, and surprised at the increased
brilliancy of tbe light.
Thus in twenty minutes the illumin
atlog standard of coal. gas, fourteen can
die power, was raised to eighteen.
By no other process known to modern
science snd practice oan such results be
produced so rspldly. In the ordinary
manufacture of ooal gas, complaints as to
quality can only be remedied by a gradu
til process, which generally cornea too late
to meet complaints.
By thlsmeihod alone is the effeot inline
dlste.
We ean. therefore, assure the nubile that
hereafter any just complaints as to the
;iiuminaun quality of the gas furnished
the city, can and aball be reined lea
promptly - not in one locality omy, but
throughout the extent of our mains. It
must be underxtood, however, we oan not
unci do not undertake to make gas now
through pipes filled with scale nr rust.

cotton down near Sardis, Mississippi, snd
wishing to get some money, he applied to
his employers for tbe greenbacks, but tbey
would not give him any. He. however,
was resolved to have his Christmas fun
in Memphis, so he took a horse and rode
citywards. He unhitched the horse a
weak ago yesterday. He was pursued,
Snd st three o'clock yesterday Jones hsd
tbe animal hitched outside Mr. Mack's
grocery store. When the pursuers oame
In view of him, Jonas moved off some

lowed him and shot him in the aids. Jones
had been picking cotton for a few days,
and wanted hia pay. At twelve o'clock

Company.
Gaslight
To Uu Public:
The board of directors of the Memphis Gas
light company desire to declare. In an author
itative manner, the future policy of their com
pany In regard to the sale of gas :
Our company is possessed of the most com
plete and ample appurtenances necessary for
the manufacture and dlatrlbutiou of an ade
quate supply of Illuminating gas for the city
of Mempbls, the right to vend which we claim
as an exclusive and vested right. In addition
to tbe extensive works for the manufacture of
coal gas, we have In operation apparatus ior
manufacturing gas from uaptha, under the
process secured by tbe Rand A tittle patent.
By this method (owned and con trolled en
tirely by us), an illuminating gas is manufac
tured by our company superior lo lhat which
any other company can manufacture In this
city, by from nrly to one hundred per cent.
This la a fact which will become patent to
every gas couaanier of the city should another
company enter Into competition with us.
Within the present week an improvement has
been made at our works which will ffver
secure to this city the credit of poaaealrrng a
light unsurpassed throughout the globe.
Through the same agency we will herealler
be able to correct. In a few minutes, deficien
cies In the power of the light we furnish occa
sioned by cold weather, or from otber causes.
We do not propose lo lose a consumer on ac
count of price, bhould another oompauy com
mence to sell gss at a price lower than the rate
hxed by this company, we wilt at once reduce
our rats to a point hfly cents per thousand
cubic feet lower than the amount fixed upon
by such other company, and will keep de-ac-
ndlng iu the aame ratio.
We would remind the public that we desire
no assurances or gnarantlea on the part of our
conaumera, as we believe that whenever mat
ters coma lo opeu competition, the auperlorlty
of the iighl offered by Ihla c mpany, to aay
nolhlHg of Inducements iu price, will secure u
continuance uf the patronage 11 has so long
enlo v ed.
it is made the Imperative duty of every offi
cer and emptoye ot this company to pay
strict attention to the wan la aud requirements
of our patrons, and any lack of courtesy or
neglect of complaiuts will subject theoneuder
to severe rebuke or prompt dismissal from our
service.

It waa shameful yesterday tba conduct
of decent -looking young men wbo amused
themselves on Poplar and other streets
by exploding Ore crackers. If tbey war
not roared with consciences of their own,
or in any religious faith, they abould bay
shown a share of respect for tbs feelings
and faith ot those wbo deem Sondsy s dsy
consecrated to holy purposes. There are
those who believe Sunday simply a day
of rest and of amusement ; bat these peo
ple so practlos their opinion thst they do
not wound tbe sensibilities or pre
judice or faith of others. They go to
themselves, and thus do not interfere
with the equal rights of others.
But fire-crackers and rocket are
unmixed public nuisances, and go with
those who use thsm. The polios of tbs
city disgrace themselves, for the ordinance
is plainly written, when they suffer this
resort hy boys to practices which have
brought death to household even In
Memphis, and in otber cities bays swept
away millions of property by disastrous
conflagrations. Yesterday a gentleman
and lady In a baggy were seriously
endangered by a frightened horse The
stupid rabble were delighted when a
woman shrieked, snd tbe police have done
nothing to give security to life and
property and public comfort. We hope
tbe proper authorities will go into tba fire
works business this morning, and the fire
workers to the calaboose.

CHRISTMAS DINNER.
The Place lo Get Cood Cb rer Henry's
on Monroe street.
Visions of plenty, of old-fashioned
abundance and the best cheer rise before
us at tbe mention of Henry Luhrman's
name. A whole-souled, genial host, be is
s standing toast with all bis host of
friends. Every bolidsy finds him pre
pared to answer tbe demands of his cus
tomers, and anticipate their desire for
something unusually toothsome. Oa
Thanksgiving day he had turkey;
tomorrow he will have goose, tur
key snd roast beef, soup and all tbe
garnishments, and served up in un
Burpsssed style. He means thst Christ
ma day aball bs kept in tbe beat and
moat generous spirit at his house, which
is ss noted a placa as there is in the coun
try. Scarce a lover of lager in tbe United
States but knows '-Henry's, ' on Monroe
street. He is famous for bis lager, his
wines snd his cigars, and equally famous
for his manner of attending to hia guests.
He musters every night as "jolly a set of
fellows" as ever drank acb nappe, every one
of them a personal admirer of Henry, gen
tlemen who don't swear off, but, by the
boat whose beversgas invigorate,
but not intoxicate, whoae kindly smile
snd pleasant greeting would make Rip
Van Winkle stop counting forever. On
Christmas day (to-morrow), Henry will
welcome bis thousand of friends to a hos
pitable board, which will fairly groan
wltb seasonable viands, "and when the
day has ended" they will drink his health
and give three-times-three for mine host

THE COTTON MILL.
Preata
oa t otus at III
at at Mesa phis.
Could I
lavoat-
The advocacy of a cotton mill In Mam
phi was not entered into with a wild,
enthusiastic desire for prosperity, without
cool calculation of the ultimate results.
A cotton mill at Memphis, wltb all Its
necessary adjuncts, capable of converting
three thousand bale of cotton into cloth
annually, would coat $800,000. Now let
oa see what oould be got out of that In
vestment during a year in the way of
profits, on whloh to lease a dividend. Ten
per cent, on the price of the cotton used is
tbe ns oal return In Mssasismssllii. it could
not certainly be leas bora. Then three
thouaand bales at one hundred dollar
each, yielding ten par cant., would bs
130,000. As tbe ginning could be all dona
al tba mill, without aay additional coat,
we drew five per cent, from that source,
$15,000, wide from tbe saving of bagging
and rope, freights, factors' charge snd
oommlasion, firs Insurance, storage,
drayage, sampieage, and wastage.
Tbs cotton broker wbo fills toe
order ior the Mew England mills must
psy tho cotton factor the value of the cot
ton with all tbeae charges and make his
additional charge of oommlasion. Insur
ance, drsysge, wastsge and exchange, and
finally tbe freight, marine and fire insur
ance, drayage, damagea, etc., from tba
oattosi broker to tbe cotton manufacturer
of New England ten per cent., 30,000;
profits upon cottonseed manufactured into
oil fit tbe mill from the three thousand
bales, taO.OOO. Giving a total of 196,000.
Here Is s clear profit of SS par cent, per
annum, all of which might be declared
dividend, for there need not be a cent of
abatement mads on any item mentioned.
Tbey are sll s long way under the mark.
If there Is any one in Memphis who can
point oat s business in whiah so sure and
so great returns can be made in any other
way, he will do much for tbe community.
Compare this with any other securitiee.
Government bonds only yield a little over
six percent. In paper money; railroad
atocks are doubtful except to the owners
of property along tbe line. Steamboats
are not, in tbe moat fortunate seasons,
half so good. Banks yield only a beggar
ly dividend and are attended wltb no
olesaings sa this enterprise would be, tor
it would employ hundreds In productive
industry at paying wages. Insurance
companies are full of risk. Investment
In buildings cannot be expected to pay
more than fifteen or twenty per osnt.
Evan active employment ot capital In
businsaa pursuit could not bs expectd to
yield so lsrge and so certain a dividend.
