THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL - THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1873.
lEHPIIIS APPEAL ! I SDAY wOKNINK, WAY 15,187 nee. Will the mails :,r feet do as mut-b as many pawac tigers V AH OF THE UAt UEN The uuestiou ! ' ises" is to ! de termiued !y ex having a gauge business and car with eual ease, comfort and safety as those bavimr a caugre of five feet. There are enough three-feet gauge roads now in operation to determine this question If the result of actual experience show that the three-feet roads carry a many jiatsengers' with equal comfort and ease as do roads of a five-feet gauge ana ,:ullv as much freieht, it is useless far men to denv their usefulness. Why biuld roads at a cost of twenty-five thou and dollars a mile when roads can be MM at a cost of lift sen thousand dollars mile which will do equally as much business at one-third less expense. This talk about through roads and trunk lines is doing much to bewilder the tublic mind, and lead it away froai the true issue. If broad gauge roads can carry more freight or passengers than narrow-gauge roads, lit this fact be shown; but the small at tempts at ridicule of narrow-gauge roads is unbaowahw in handling so linoortani a 'jtiestion. Thequestionof cheap trans- i nit at ion is the great question, and .id be handled with all seriousness, The tables which we give below are full of iitqxirtaut facts, ami are well worthy of ntte.mve coii.-iaerauon. Iliey are made out from actual experience, an show that narrow-gauge cars carry as much freight as broad-gauge ones; and that in a train of twenty cars the saving in favor of the narrow-gauge is one hun dred tons, or two hundred thousand jK.uuds. The saving in passenger es is vet. ureater tumi this. Tili l- the reason why the expenses on a narrow-gauge road are so much less than on a broad-gauge road. If the facts in the annexed tables are not true, let them be deuieil; if they are true, that settles the question as to what kind of roads should be built. If they are not true it can easily be ascertained. iit ttie subject be tuny and lairly in- Vi -tigated. A e copy from the Chicago Jnter-Ocean: Mer. F. E. Canda & Co., are manu ring all the cars for their road the Cairo and (St. Louis at their own shops here in Chicago. Their factory is lo cated at the intersection of Blue Island uuuf and Rolxy street, where they have fifteen acres of ground with one thousand eight hundred feet of river and dock frontage. They propose doing a'l kirds of car "work, but at present find all they can do on narrow-gauge cars alone. The shops will have a ca i.v for employing five hundred meu. ami extensive additions are in con templation, making the establish ment the most complete one of the kind in the United .States. The cars manufactured at these shops have the same style of construction now in use in the most approved wide-gauge cars; the proportions, weight, etc., be ing mmimnwi to correspond with the The train, if it should happen to run off, three-feet gauge.

The engineer assured these, a deputation representing the I'nited Presbyterian church of Scotland will be present, consisting of Rev. John Kadie, P. I)., LI..D.. professor of exe- cetical theologv, and Kev. Henry Laid erwootl, LL.I., professor of moral philosophy in the University of Edin burgh. These are both men of high reputation in Scotland. Dr. Kadie is well known in this country through his commeutaiics and other productions, which areof distinguished mark. Little Bock is ieculiariiy fortunate in being selected as the place for this meeting of the assembly this year, and we have little doubt the hospitable people of that beautiful city will extend the members a hearty and cordial welcome. Few places in the country can l made more attractive to visitors than Little Bock. Its situation, the regularity of its streets the large number of handsome residences aud the thrifty-looking blocks of busi ness buildings, all combine' to make a striking impression on visitors, but when to this is added the genial and liberal hospitality of the people, victory for them is always assured. They never fail to carry their friends captive. We know the present instance will not be an exception, and feel satisfied the mem bers of one of the highest assemblages of christian gentlemen known to the country, and their Scottish visitors, will carry with them to their homes a pleas ant memory of the capital of Arkansas. niODLETOH AD HI P LEV HO AD. Colonel L. D. Meyers, of Columbia, president of the Duck Biver Valley rail road, recently paid a visit to the Mid- dleton aud Bipley road for the purpose of examining a road having a gauge of three feet. Colonel Meyers is a man of high character, well known as a lawyer of distinction in Middle Tennessee, aud his remarks are therefore worthy of at- utiou. Much has been said about this road, in some instances complimentary, aud in somenotsocomplimentary,but we uppose the remarks made by Colonel Meyers are as fair and impartial as we can expect from any quarter. The St. Louis and Cairo foad will be the fairest test of roads of this description. The following is taken from his report at Columbia: He said he had recently visited the three-feet gauge road from Middleton, Tennessee, to Bipley, Missis- ippi. Although very imperfectly built, was a success. The crossties were too mall and too short, the embankments were too narrow, and the excavations did not have sufficient slope to their sides. The road was built with too much haste in order to get the State subsidy, and consequently there were many defects which could be remedied. xnd which thev were now remedving. The system, he was satisfied, was per fect. The passenger-coach ran with great smoothness, ease and comfort. The cars carried twice their weight in freight, whilst cars on the broad-gauge roads only carried pound for nouud there may I in the future, as men have never failed in the past, to volun teer on this forlorn hope of science. I'.ut the chance is too desperate that they should I encouraged to sacrifice themselves for it. Let us henceforth respect the secrets of that icy and invio late north which basso terrible a pun ishment to inflict tip hi those who try to leer aud pry into what seems forever forbidden to men fully to find out and make available for human uses."

Baxter is, if the Conservatives and Democrats of Arkansas are not careful, about to become the object of a contest that may turn Arkansas over to the clutches of the worst element of the Badical party. If the well-meaning Republicans and Democrats do not stand up to him, the Badicals who are hungering for his overthrow in order to get possession of the State, may sue ceed in one or other of the ventures they are making before the courts. Their motto should be, "Be watchful and be ware." Arkansas has all to lose in the uuseatingof Governor Baxter. KDiTORS appeal r or lour years past much interest has been felt in this community by members of the bar, as well as citizens, whose rights were ef fected as to the power of a married wo man to convey land which had been settled on her, "to her sole and separate use, free from the debts, contracts or control of her husband." The immedi ate cause of the unusual interest in this question, was the pendency of a suit for aoout tnirty-nve acre of valuable and improved land near the city of Mem phis; and it has been greatly intensified by rumors of recent decisions of the present supreme court of Tennessee, con flicting with the decision in that case. As I am in possession of all the facts, and as the question is one of great practical interest to the citizens of Me The centennial commission held a meeting at the chamber of commerce yesterday, a full report of'which will be found on our fourth page. Mr. Moore, one of our most energetic and leading merchants, was elected president, and a committee was appointed to prepare an address, which will be given to the pub lic in a few days. This document will, no doubt, most fully set the objects and purposes of the commission before our people, and we hope will be productive of a response that will be satisfactory to the commissioners. New York papers declare that not only are the existing facilities for trans- jHirting western products eastward w .fully inadequate, but the rates charged are out of all character, and new routes and cheaper ones are demanded. The fact is pointed out that of the sixty mil lion bushels of grain that were shipped eastward last season from the west, all the railways combined carried but thirteen millions five hundred thousand bushels of It, aud that wa- charged a rate which left no margin for its foreign exportation. The Nashville Banner is authority for the statement that the locating commit tee of the Methodist Episcopal church, appointed from four states, to choose a site for a Central Methodist university, with half a million endowment, and to be located at Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta or some other southern city, have completed their work. After tak ing a thorough survey of the field. Knoxville was chosen. Filty thousand dollars and a site has been subscribed bv that town. count of strength and stability, that him he could, when he got the road in good condition, which would be soon, carry a train of thirty loaded cars up a grade of one hundred and fifteen feet to the mile. He said that they could turn very sharp curves with ease and safety. Take it all in all, it was, with all its im perfections, a satisfactory example of what narrow-gauge roads could do. 1 supposed to incident to the nar row-gauge rolling stock, are thus en tirely obviated.

It is a great mistake to represent the movement among the farmers of the west aud southwest as simply an effort to secure better railroad facilities. While it is that, it is also much more in truth, a great reform movement is now sweeping the agricultural regions of the country like a whirlwind, and it b:ds fair speedily to make itself felt as the great political power of the country. i - ft Ill ft i ft ; l- rail 3 ft 8 -ar...H ft 1 lliaht In i:en i-j- ..in !Mf rati left DiaaM Weight .f v heels ..

CAPITAL OWIX. TO IKVI'HH. Memphis is a city of great facilities, it hi not what she is but what she is to i that warms the blood aud makes the nerves tingle, as we peep into her future, r-he has an unexcelled site, a delightful climate, and a grand commercial posi tion. These things form a soil that will y. i fruitful returns for all the capital strewed broadcast over it. The capital is the one thing needful. Opportunities are great and abundant; with the cap ita) that will permit of improving them "Smooth as Glass," are the words with which the dead walls of New Or leans are just now covered. To the over wrought and excited imaginations of the people of that city they are taken to mean the same thing as the once famous "K. K.," and so they are interpreted by press-men and government detectives, who write that "Smooth as Glass" is the name of a secret organization for the overthrow of the Kellogg government. The Picayune of Monday publishes two telegrams to that effect one sent to New York and the other to Washing ton and commenting thereon, says: "The sensation created by the appear ance of the cabalistic sentence posted up in conspicuous places about the prin cipal thoroughfares of the city is unpa- I ralleled. It will be seen from the above 1 that the news has been heralded through the Lorthern cities and is creating a sen sation among men high in authority. Curiosity has been wrought up to such a pitch here in the city that it would be au act of charity if some one possessed of the secret would come forward and allay the excitement by disclosing it." If this is not au advertising dodge, and there is really an organization such as i- hinted at, Kellogg is resjonsible for it, for as we held In regard to the ku klux. societies of that character do not exist except as the onset of oppression The Little Bock Gazette is giving Baxter a sensible support, and says, as we are happy to record, that It will con tinue to do so, regardless of the sneers of ff01 its contemporaries who are too hide bound to see that it is to the interest of Arkansas to do the best that can be done with the material in hand, aud wait pa tiently for an opportunity to do better.

The case first mentioned above is that of Young r. Young, 7 Cold. 461. On the first of July, 1663, Wesley Blakemore conveyed to Mrs. Mary A. Young, wife of Dr. James Y'oung, thirty-five acres of laud, on Cane creek, south of Memphis, to hold "to the only proper use and be hoof of her, the said Mary A. Young, to her sole and separate use, her heirs and assigns forever." Dr. Young sub divided and sold this land in lots to va rious parties, Walker, Hardiil, Ball, Chandler, aud others, and he aud his wife joined in the conveyances in the usual way. the purchaser erected on their respective lots valuable improvements. But afterward, Mrs. Young, deeming that under the terms of the conveyance to her she had no power to sell, brought her bill of complaint in the Memphis chancery court to have thee convey auces made by her and her husband set aside and the property restored to her. The chancellor decreed in her favor upon the ground that where property was conveyed to a married womaa in this way and no power to sell was given her in the deed, she could not make a valid conveyance. The defendants ap pealed to the supreme court, aud at the April term, 1S70, the court, then com posed of Judges Andrews, Hawkins and McLaiu, reversed the deci sion uf the chancellor. the opin . . . . ion, iy judge Andrews, holding tnat "ii tne deed or will by which land is settled to the separate use of a mar ried woman contains no limitation or restriction, express or implied, upon her power to convey the estate, she may convey it in the same manner that she may convey her general estate." This was deemed the settled "law of the land," until at the January term, 1871, the case of L,ucy r. Gray vs. Joseph M Kobb al was heard at Nashville by tne present coun. in tnat case Mrs Gray held a lot bv deed from Charles J, Grim upon the following terms: "To have ami to hold said lot and every part and parcel thereof, with improvements and appurtenances tnereto belonging, to the said Lucy F. Gray, her heirs and assigns forever, to the sole aid and be hoof of the said Lucy F. and her heirs forevc." Mrs. Gray having made con veyance of the lot to indemnify Joseph M. Bobb, afterward brought her bin to have it set aside, and the court held opinion by Judge Nicholson mat -upon tne well-settled doctrine in our state, a married woman has no other power to convey or dispose of her separate estate than that given to her oy the instrument which conveys her the separate estate. If the instrument gives her no power, then she can exer cise none. Such is the present case. The grantor has conveyed to her an es tate for her sole and separate use, but he has given her no power to dispose of it. The deed, therefore, which she executed to Bobb was a nullity." Also, at the term, in the case of John W. Head, tidmiuistrator, M. Lucien M. Temple and wife, a questiou came up in a shape slightly different, but affirming, in effect, the same principle. In this case, by ante-nuptial agreement, property was settled upon the wile, to be " protracted and assured to her own sole and separate use fiee from the debts or claims of the creditors" of her husband. But nower was given to her "to dispose of all or any of her property, as well of what is above described (some negroes) as of her real estate by last will and testament or by deed of gift." And in another clause it is said, "but her right to dispose of the same as aforesaid in any wav she may choose is in no event to lie impaired or restricted." On the sixteenth of November, I860, the wife and husband made a joint note for one thousand five hundred dollars, and to secure the pay ment they both joined in executing a mortgage on a lot in the town of Galla tiu, part of the property settled on the wife as above stated. The court, opin ion by Judge Turlev, declared the mort gage to be void, upon the ground that a married woman upon whom property is settled with a tower of disposition can only dispose of it iu the manner and by the modes desig nated m the deeds, and that the powers of sale and disposition above recited did not include the power to make a deed of trust or mortgage. In discussing and deciding these cases the court makes no mention of Young t s. Young, and in fact they did not know of the existence of that case, as the volume in which it is reported had not then been published. Much property in Tennessee, and par ticularly in .Memphis and vicinity, has passed through the hands of married women, who have held it precisely as in the cases decided, and many mortgages auu ueeos ot trust nave been given and are now outstanding upon property held in like inaurer. It now remains to be seen whether the court, upon a full ex amination of Young vs. Young, and the authorities there cited, will recede from these later opinious or abide by the doc trine of Gray is.

ORGIXL WHOLESALE 310 and 312 FROM & CO., HARDWARE, STREET, Memphis. Mr. Browning's poem is in type, and consists of four thousand five hundred lines. It is the poetic version of a great tragedy which came before the law courts of a department in the north of France, last year, and we hear that thf poet has in the outlines of the story kept closely to the facts, with a view of pre senting to the reader's mind the key to them iu human passion. A Louisville teacher has nearlv killed one of his pupils, and a Cincinnati school principal has quit j killed one of his, by too mueii ;energy in catsigauon; and in view of the frequency of such accidents. and the difficulty of gagging the power of iwurajgua muscie, ii lias been suggested that the thrashing he done by machin ery,. o that a uniform force of foot pounds could be applied to a given surface of the pupil.
