The Railroad CoHvention which met
at St. Louis on the nineteenth of June
was a decided success. More than sev
enty delegates were present from all
part--' of the United States aud Canada
who were practical railroad, locomotiv
and car-builders. They gave the results
of their experience, and established, by
incontestible facts and figures, the value
of the new system. A conference of
uteu engaged in building and operating
t lies roads was demanded by imperative
necessity, in order that trustworthy in
formation might lie obtained on this im
portant subject. If these roads prove to
be a safe and profitable investment for
capital, as there is no doubt they will

light, and we ask for it especial at ton
The speaker alluded to the greatness
of Chicago as the result of her railroad
system, and the wonderful growth and
prosperity of the North as dependent
upon the same cause. The North was
already comparatively well supplied
with railroad. She could get along
very well without more railroads. Not
so, however, with the South. The ttouth
needs railroads, and she must have
them, or she is bound to retrograde
The interests of the people, the wel
fare of the South demands more
railroads. The great Southwest, rich
in mineral and agricultural resour
ces, remains uninhabited for the
want of more railroads. The only fea-
siole way in which this demand could
be supplied was by the adoption of the
narrow-gauge system. The practi
. abilitv of this system was first
demonstrated in the little country
f Wales. There the first narrow-gauge
road was built and operated. It was
only thirteen miles in length, and it was
ued almost exclusively in transporting
slate. The Sunerintendent shocked the
nerves of railroad fogies by telling them
that the gauge of this little road, which
was only thirteen miles, could be suc
cessfully applied to all the ordinary uses
of railroad transportation. Railroad men
wore incredulous. The proposition
seemed wild and visionary. But the
success of this little road had vindicated
the truth of the proaosition. It was a
- : ( t-ntirely unparalleled in the his
t. .ry of broad-gauge roads. In 1870 this
road had carried ten thousand tons of
freight and eight thousand passengers
for each mile of road, and had experi
enced not a single accident. In 1671
this little road declared the enormous
dividend of fty per cent. Here

this is not all. It has been tried In

America: it was no longer an experi

"are the advocates of the narrow-gauge
mbem in this country. Not your vis
ionary enthusiasts, but the shrewdest,
most practical and experienced railroad
lucu of the country." Among them he
made mention of Colonel Fremont
General McClellan, Mr. Hofl", the Chief
Engineer of the Pennsylvania Central,
who had done much to make that road
what it is. There were also that prom
inent railroad man, Mr. Osborne, of
Philadelphia, and the great railroad
king, Thomas A. Scott, of Pennsylva
nia. These two Utter gentlemen are
showing their faith by their works.

BT THE APPEAL.
The rit. Louis Republican makes an
admiraMe editorial exposition and ap
proval of the philosophy which the Ap
peal has sought to popularize for some
years past. Hon. Erasttia Wells, the
most practical and sensible of represen
tatives of the Mississippi Valley, ap
proved two years ago the theory here
presented, and now the great central
organ of Western intelligence and pro
gress lend- its potency to the achieve
ment of a purpose which will add incal
culable sums to the country's wealth.
The Republican says:
It is well known that dykes and em
Imnkments were long ago constructed
along many miles of the lower Missis
sippi river, to maintain that division be
tween the land and water so requisite
for i easant aud urontaoie agriculture
The tickle river was thus kept in its
bed, and thousands of rich lands were
lriinnicd from its periodical encroach
ments. Since the war these levees have
not been kept in repair for want or inter
est and means, and much loss to agri
culture has been the con.-eiueneo. Jn
view of the preposition before Congress

thirty-live millions of noiiars in con
structing levees from Cairo to the Gulf,
on both sides of the river, some of the
Southern papers declare that the levees
are cumbersome contrivances at best,
and of no practical use. In support of
uiis aiiuuuuceuieiu, tney say mat we
embankments tend only to raise the
bottom of the river, and that the govern
ment might go on building them eter
nally to a constantly rising river until
the highest natural bluffs became low
lands. If experience in levee-building
has so far shown this to be a fact, it does
seem as if some other plan ought to be
adopted to effect the purpose intended.
It would not do to elevate the river upon
a mountain ridge, for the building must
stop some time, and then the im
petuous torrent would have its own
way in the end. It is suggested
that instead of embankments built
with the fruitless purpose of preventing
the natural flow of water, the natural
facilities or its paeaage ought to be. in

THE COITUS HOP.
In our commercial column we publish
to-day the monthly crop report of the
New Orleans Cotton Exchange for June.
Its general tenor is cheering. With an
average season a full average crop is an-
ieipated in Texas, less than an aver
age in Arkansas, a full yield in Tennes
see, Alabama, tlonaa ana ortu ,aro-
ina, an average crop in South Carolina,
and a fair yield in Georgia; and with a
favorable and late fall a very large crop
in Texas, no more than an average in
Arkansas, a large yield in Tennessee,
Alabama and Florida, a full yield in
rth and South Carolina, a full crop in
Georgia, a full average in Mississippi
and an average in Louisiana. This is a
fair deduction from the extensive cor
respondence of the committee, which
they submit to the members of the Ex-
hange without comment. All that the
ommittee claim is that their report
presents a faithful synopsis of their ex
tensive correspondence, and that these
rrespondents have been selected by
the Exchange on account of their as-
umed intelligence and fidelity.
The progressive city of Rome, Georgia,
proposes to B.noxvuie to nave a snort
canal constructed connecting the Ten
nessee with the Alabama river at Rome.
The latter city would be infinitely ag
grandized and twenty er thirty per
cent added to the value of all exported
products of East Tennessee by cheap
ening means of access to the exterior
orld. The Valley of the Mississippi
has precisely the wants, and the same
means of relief are proffered it that
Rome suggests to Knowvllle.

rious charges made, which appear in the
Memphis Republican, of July 4th, (this
month), which arise from speeches
male, and resolutions offered at a Grand
Ratification meeting held the week pre
ceding in this city. These resolutions
chanted that we, as a colored people, had
not been properly dealt with. These
were offered by Rev. Mr. Phillips, whs
had been in a previous convention, with
another colored man, and were selected
as delegates to the National Convention
at Philadelphia, but when arriving there,
both Mr. Phillips and the other colored
man referred to, were on the records at
the National Convention as alternates
in violation of the selection as made by
our own people here. We will assert
here the gentleman offering these reso
lutions well knew what he was doing
and felt it his duty to offer them to vin
dicate himself before his own people
In speaking of the resolutions and
adoption, I charged that as a party we
had leen sold out, or traded oft' without
our knowledge, by a certain class of
white Republicans. I now allude to the
gubernatorial election of D. W. Seuter.
In that canvass a large number of our
white Republicans went into secret can
cus with Democrats, agreeing with
them. Mr. Senter should remove cer
tain registrars and secure to them the
Legislature, provided they (the Demo
crate) would make no nomination
against Senter, and at this time General
W. J. Smith was one of said Senter's
confidential friends and supporters, and
at that time, two sets of delegates went to
.Nashville, both, however, were instruct
ed to go for Mr. Stokes; but the same
white delegates violated all good faith
of their constituents, and consumatcd
the cheat and swindle I alluded to.

ftow, we will come to the appoint
ment of Captain Carter's position as As
sistant Assessor. At the time of the
Federal appointments for these oftice
Captain Carter was recommended aa the
choice of the party here, but when all
were at Washington ueneral smitn re
fused to ofter Carter's name, because he
was a colored man, and thus secured
Xewkirk's appointment, and to appease
Mr. Carter ana his friends tendered him
a minor position, which Carter reluctant
ly accepted, and as soon as an opportu
nity offered resigned and left the State.
It is true that Giles Smith was ap
pointed by General Smith's influence as
route agent, and was arrested at the in
stigation of a prostitute, influenced by
r ederal officers for this purpose, and
when Smith was brought beforea United
States Commissioner the postmaster
produced before him as good a record as
other route agents, still Giles Smith was
bound over and removed, which being
accomplished, the prosecution ceases,
the sequel Is answered. Also, we will '

General Smith says Colonel Eaton bad
a colored man for clerk in his office.
This is untrue. He did employ a colored
man for a short time to clean out his of
fice, etc., and possibly to black boots; if
he done any duty as clerk it was at wa
ges of the boot-black.
Now we will take up the case of Mr.
Ileloach. Until this admission General
Smith has alwaysjdeclared that Josiah
Deloach was appointed postmaster over
his protest, and Mr. Delooch has said
to me he had under advisement the ap
pointment of colored men as letter ear
ners, but General Smith and others had
advised him not to do it, while at the
same time General Smith was telling
our people Mr. Deloach could not stay
in the office unless he would appoint
Geueral Smith claims that he was at
one time elected by white men to the
Legislature, and "was working manfully
for the enfranchisement of the colored
race." This was the time when he was
elected by his own regiment and sat in
the Legislature while holding a com
mission in the army. As to what he
done, the records show he voted to bind
out colored babes until twenty-one vears
of age a second edition of slavery. This,

whom he regarded as the instrumentali
ties to be employed to free us from the
oppressive tyranny of Radical rule, and
to overthrow the corrupt Grant dynasty.
His views were heartily sanctioned by '
the audience, and his" remarks were
following .Mr. fcstes was
CAPTAIN HENRY JONES,
of Lauderdale, who is also a candidate
for Senator. His introductory remarks
were very humorous, as he indulged in
several anecdotes, but his peroration
was beautiful and sensible. He said a
bright era was about to dawn on our
land, when the deep-toned thunders of
contention would cease, and the rays of
peace and civilization permeate every
quarter of this grand republic. Owing
to the lateness of the hour, and the
weary impatience of the audience, he
said he would not make any further
remarks, but that before the campaign
was over he would discuss all the issues
of the day.
COLONEL P. T. GLASS,
of Ripley, another candidate for the
Lsame honor, being indisposed, sent tn
niis letter of regrets, and did not attend
Then came the last speaker, the far
famed MR. A. a STUCKY,
of George Francis Train's class. He
made a short, volatile speech, abound
ing in wit. He goes alxut in elegant
style. He rides In an old-fashioned ve
hicle, on which is painted a plow, and
over which floats In the merry breezes a
white flag, on which is inscribed, in
We hope to be able to furnish you a

HON. W. W. VAVGHAN
was also present, but made no speech,
"because,'' said he, "the audience are

A report, originating in the Cincinnati
Enquirer, to the eiieot that JUehard
Smith of the Gazette was engaged in a
movement to secure the withdrawal of
Grant in order to bring out a candidate
that would defeat Greeley, having ob
tained a wide circulation, Mr. Hmith
authorizes its contradiction. There is not,
he says, the shadow of a foundation for
the report. He advocated the nomination
of Grant before the assembling of tliePhil
adelphia Convention, aud believes him
to be the strongest man that could have
been chosen. He furthermore says, that
be regards Greeley as about the weakest
candidate that could have been selected
by the opposition, and be believes that
he will be defeated.
Donn Piatt says there are two seasons
in which our administration seeks re
pose from its gigantic labors one is
that which prewdes the holidays, and
the other tnat wnieh follows. in view
of this peculiar arrangement on the part
of our honest, 'over-worked officials, it is
now proposed to irive Grant ami lus re
lations an extended leave of alisence,
without pay, beginning on the fourth of
Jiarcn, iB7a, ana terminating witn me
death of the parties aforesaid. This will,
no doubt, be entirely satisfactory par
ticularly to the tax-payers.
In retiring from tbe firm of Graham A Well
