THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-WEDNE8DAY, DECEMBER 87. 1871. MEMPHIS APPEAL BFFtCIAL JOURNAL OF THE CITY WEDNESDAY H0RN1NS, : DEC. 27, 1871 FOB BATttK. JOHN JOHNSON the nunc fob actios. It will not be the fault ol the Appeal, should the people of Memphis fail to elect John Johnson mayor. Theee column attest how often we bsrs urged upon artsy good citizen to come up to the sup rwi.t nf a faithful cublic aervant. We hall continue to urge every voter to do . lis duty to the city, to his family and to i he public, by failing not, on any pre i straw whatever, to cast his vote for the . e-election of a mayor who has reduced this city debt, and whose administration has been incorruptible. The registration of voters has been large. In this respect t'e people have manifested a commenda ble interest in the prosperity of the oily. But certificates of registration are worthless unless the holder votes and takes some interest in secur ing a victory. Man have often been dales ted by the over-confidence of friends and the activity and assiduity of a fussy minority. A full vote will gtre Johnson several thousand majority: but the fact that his opposition is weak, decrepit and drooping, has lessened the zeal ot those friends who never vote unless the contest be dose. The 1 tike-warm politicians: the waiters upon Providence, who have been lamenting over the inevitable ruin of the country, and yet refuse to act like men and freemen to recover their rights, will be again keenly rebuked if, by their indif ferenoe or neglect to vote, John Johnson should be defeated. We are aware that in a'l times and in all countries there are a c ase of men so exclusively engrossed in taelr own personal pursuits and aggrandizement that they have neither t.me to look to heaven for a e Bar, nor to the earth for a flower. In former elections it has been no easy mat ter to arouse the mass of the people to s d ue sense of the importance of an Intel lectual .discharge of the elective duty. One is busy at bis farm, and another at h i merchandise. They trust each that his neighbor will go to the polls. His own vote will not be wanted. In this way our very prosperity becomes a source of danger, unfolding in its bosom a principle of self-destruction. While the great ma of the people are devoted to their private avocations, the all-Important right of sofrsge is left to be performed by thu professed politicians, and oonso- qaontly under the Influence of party passions and selfish calcu lation. This indifference haa been the canker in the body politic. But elsewhere the people have risen in all their majesty, and in tones ot thunder have proclaimed their determination to discharge their duty as good citizens. In the approaching municipal election we call upon the peo ple to arouse themselves, and to give to the world s bright example of the true beauty of a republican syiitem. Without party slogans and discipline; without biing swayed by selfish motives; stran gers to cabal and intrigue, let them take the election Into their own hands, and with sympathetic zeal unite in one con centrated and triumphant effort for John Johnson. THE OAS COMPANIES' WAM. A suit la pending In a court of this city Involving the fortunes of individuals and those of a gas company. It is not our province to Intervene at this Juncture, or do aught that might prejudice the rights of either party. Therefore we have not only declined to publish communications, but have recently said nothing on the subject. The contest between the compa nies will last for some time how long none can tell. It la very certain that tits price of gas will he greatly reduced, and we expect to Illuminate the Appeal office at one dollar per thousand feet before the gas war ends. Meanwhile profitable modes for utilizing the patent for the man ulacture ol a-es from naphtha, and of making a perfect light at the least cost will be employed by the old company and; it 1 s asserted that the public shall have no reason. In future, for any com plaints because of the quality or Ulumln ating power of the gas furnished. F. L. Cahdozo, the colored secretary of state In South Carolina, thus writes to his brother, ;ai Yickaburg this extract ap peering in the Vicksburg Sepublican, Loague newspaper: The lt-eiiatur- of this State 1 bustly en gaged lnveKtlgaUiig the present state of our nnan&ai atrairs, wmeii are in a uejiiuntuic aml (lirrfn.t minli!1im.

He hesi tates to do so for fear, I suppose, that he will be beaten. The colored men ol the state are roud of the stand I have taken, and even the crats applaud me. The praise or ene- astsl i!- MBketlwe suspicious, biu. when du- pr, Da served, It Is gratifying.

V Bou-en, to the .fleet that the state had been delr.iuded lie nil over-issue Of Sh.3M.U0U, and recommending the house to take the neces sary steps u hold those persons accountable who violated the law and ruined me credit of the suite. If the colored peop'e of this city would not eject from office an honest man, that the city may sutler the fate ol South Car- olina, and the colored people themselves be disgraced, why do they send a wagon around the streets with bands of music, on which is inscribed the name ol Loague? And what pretext have white men who do not belong to the loyal leagues for supporting a candidate the great mass of whose supporters are only to he found in the loyal leagues? FACTS FOB TBI tOTKBS OF MEM PHIS. The Columbus (Miss.) Index tells the result of the municipal election in that city. It says: Ueason has again triumphed, r . J we hare once more a good mayor. The: a were two candidatearunuing for the office in the elec tion ol Thursday Colonel W. C. Richards, the choice of me cooservatlvd whites and blacks and the l;(-nti lt-publicr ns, while aud Mack; and Major-l). L. Wallace, me champion ol me Kadlcal party. The offiis of me mayor Is not a politieal one. but me Kadicala, ac cording to their policy, made It so. and Mr. Wallace Just as they would use Loague In Siemphls. was their strict party nominee. The vote stood 1 hua : ople's candidate. Abti IU Hi candidate. S7'i at RiehKrC Wallact Bournel Kl chard's majority ove Wallace Kl it U a most gratifying fact, an1 one that we take infinite pleasure lu mentioning, mat Colonel Richards was elected by no j-ai : y vole. The eyes of all were turned upou htm as the tain lor me place; as t vn.rtuy, nonesi. i blc gentleman, who would flli well a dignified position, and dispense Justice. In bis m lerlal capacity, cmally loall both white black, tea.ished of this, men of all poutlcu opinions and of iioth races supported him White and colored republicans voted for him On the day of epvctlon, registration stood as toliows : White Ulack 612 Black -majority t While we know of several white Republicans wno supported me people s u.-imnee, the ma joniy ior rucnarn suows mere were nesiao. thirty or forty ooiotrd men who abjured poll lies and went for tht man they thought would mane the uesi tm.v ,r. We oosszratolate the people of Colnmbu upon Hie issue o t:e election, and know h but echo the sen in lent of all good men, in thanking the Users! men of the Republican ranks for the patriotic course they pursuid in me inatwr. If the rxople of Memphis are wise they will follow in the footsteps of those of Columbus. Let us hsve a trustworthy and capable mayor, and In assuring his election there should be no differences among honest men. If there be a class who would segregate themselves, because of peculiar race features, from the mass of those who earnestly desire the prosperity of the city, they can no w shape their course accordingly, and (heir conduct on the 4th of January will never be forgttten. It would be well for thum to act as wisely ss their fellow Republicans of Columbus, Mis sissippi. Thu Cincinnati and Chattanooga rail i oad bill will be considered by the Ken tucky legislature on the 9th of January. The supreme court of Ohio haa decided that Cincinnati had the right to subscribe ten millions to t'lis road beyond the con fines of Oaio. It would be as unwise ss impolitic for Kentucky to deny to Clncin natl, under reasonable restrictions, such S3 are commonly Imposed upon railroad corporations, the privilege asked. Not the least of resulting evils would be the pretext given Morton, Sherman and other oonsolidationista for intervention In mst tsrs that concern States alone. Under the clause of the constitution authorizing congress to regulate commerce between the States, Grant and his imperial ring may soon seize the pet railroad of Raleigh and Bolivar, after gulping down all the telegraph wires to whet an sppetite for broad and narrow-gauges. Is another place will be found an article explaining the conduct of the Southern Railroad association, and telling why it failed to meet certain liabilities, of the protest of which the Appeal spoke st the time. General West's statements are satis factory, and always conclusive where he Is kown, as In this city. The Mobile Register recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. It has grown stronger with each successive year, and Is now In the hey-dsy of its long, thoughtful and useful life. THE MERCHANTS' TAX. Extraordinary INDUCEMENTS Dry Goods B.

Ii this were done the great aud prosperous State of Arkansas prosperous despite the mal-adminiatraUon ol its government the Indian Territory and Northern Texas would be nearer Hew lork, byway cf Memphis, one hundred miles, than by way of St. Louis. The completion of fifty. f ur miles from Fort Smith to Fort Gib son, which will be finished within six months, places Tennessee, Mississippi, Ala bama and Louisiana in direct connection with the Union Pacific road, through Mean phis. By this means the States des ignated will have a shorter route by two hundred miles through Memphis to the Pacific, than by way of St. Louis. We will then have within the next few months a completed line from this city t the Pacific With this, and the branch to Camdon, Jeff arson and Screveport finished, Memphis grasps two empires aim two routes to the Pacific!
