It will do to study and to preerve against the coming of the man who. like death, can not be avoided. It is a searching document, many-sided, and intricate enough for a Philadelphia lawyer.

We advert to this fact that the Appeal's laudation of Mr. Baxter, and steady adhesion to his fortunes may not be misconceived. He is no partisan friend of ours, and will never be. He will do many arte, and make many ap pointments, which the Appeal can never approve; but for all that fclisba Baxter b an upright, good citizen of Arkansas, who will serve his Mte as wisely and faithfully it is' possible for one of his faith, and for one affected by influences which he can neither resist nor control.

Elsewhere in our columns will be found the proceedings of one of the largest meetings of the Memphis bar ever held in the city. More than one hundred of the leading members of the profession were in attendance yesterday at the federal court-rooms to testify by their presence the profound regret which the entire bar experienced in the loss of Judge Hudson, whose sudden o -ith we announced yesterday. The resolutions adopted but faintly portray tfca iirit of sadness, respect, and affec tion which characterized the meeting. It i- true that these resolutions are all that a refined and cultivated committee of gentlemen, called suddenly and without preparation to the task of writing them, might graciously offer as an expression of the sense of the meeting: it is true that they are admirably drafted, and say ami mean much in a few words; but he who would fully enter into the spirit of the meeting of yesterday should have lis tened to the tributes, sorrowful, respect ful and tender, which were paid at that sneetiug by the ablest and best lawyers of Memphis, to the memory of Judge HuUs.'u. They were the spontaneous outgrowth of appreciation for a combi nation of kindly virtues which made those who , From our Special Corres aeiit.J Abingdon, Va. Mav 31. The house in which William C. Pres ton, the famous orator and senator from South Carolina was bom, still stands in Abingdon, Virginia. It is nearly oppo site the newly built modern Colonnade hotel, with which the antique framed structure is in striking contrast. People s selling a purer, more invigorating and nealtutul atmospiiere are gathered here from all the southern States. In the cool afternoon, when delightful breezes sweep down from the summits of mouu- t.tiij- environing the place, these wan tierers irom me soutn sit upon the verandahs of the hotel, and stories oi great men's deeds are recited, of those who were born and reared tieueath the shadows of these rugged bights that hedge in the delightful village. The home of the lMe.-tons wa built in the last years of the last century. Like the residences in Jonestioro or Greenville, the oldest t !! 111 rvniiessee, the houses const i tute the eonhnes of the streets. There j ere no fences or front yards in those days. Andrew Johnson steps from his doorway into tne street, even as did thev who constituted the famous "house of Preston." The old building is on a hillside, one end on the ground, the otner upinieo oy a stone wall beneath the framed structure. The two stories are very low and windows exceedingly small. The two chimneys are built waony witnin me nouse, which is adorned in front by a large portico fifteen feet w ide projecting across tne pavement. the building is about sixty feet long and us wans are nardiy more than seventeen or eighteen feet high. Next tliis ehildhood's home of the great ora tor, is the old law office of the late GOVERNOR JOHN B. FLOYD. Huebauau's secretary of war, and after ward a Confederate general. He was of swarthy skin, but oi faultless features and carriage, and pronounced the finest looking gentleman of bis time when -waving the destinies and shaping the opinions oi ivir. Jitienanan s cabinet He did not die at rort Donaldson, but not long after the surrender of this stronghold he went away, whither, I cannot ten, due oeiieve ne was mainly forgotten. In any event I never more heard his name, once reverenced, and syllabled by every tongue, at every southern fireside Physical death is often fearful, hut moral death, that long, steady faci li descensus of the same pathway which, not long before, the hero or ;:ite.-inan was ascending, is existence the deceased beloved by knew him beloved as 1D . u Marios contemplating his own. and. our ifcue of yesterday we gave a brief mournfully enougn, the ruins of Car- review of the career in Memphis of the . without inv or hon.

But the other day the simple offering of a 2Vv withered flowers, tendered by the Invf.ng hands of fair aud gentle women, was denied the humble graves of-the Confederate dead, .sleeping at Arlington, in the distant north. In no spirit of the Pharisee, let us thank God that the light of brotherly loveshiues as it should shine, broadly aud lovingly, in our M sunny-land: that the dark spirit, born of the war, has fled from us forever; that the virtue that adorn true man hood are ever passports to the esteem of nil true southern gentlemen, and that we tan revere the graves of those -Who xliLk to real Vita all Halt sasjstqr honors blest," whether they wore the blue or the gray, m were lm north or south of Mason and Dixon's line.

OTHER FAMOl'S MEN. liut all this has little reference to the fortunes or history of the freshly reju- mated village of which I was telling the readers of the Api-kal. Add. White, formerly a metnler of congress from Kentucky, and now of Huntsville, Ala bama, was bom in a house hard by that of the Prestons, and within a stone's throw of the home of the famous family of which General Joe Johnston is, per ha pa. most d i sti uguisli ed. The general has two brothers ohler than himself, one a lawyer of ability, the other a rare old man, perha(is ninety years of age, both visible at. almost any hour from the verandah of the hotel. The older broth er tells stories of the war of 1812, when lie was a major and with General Bcott, tought at Quecnstown and elsewhere in Canada. He smokes a pipe with a mar velously long stem, and sits among the lawyers in the federal courtroom crack ing jokes with the judgeupon the bench, and with the attorneys and jurymen. Like his brothel here, aud that other at Savannah, he has a magnifieent face. These two would be recoguiaed by any -one familiar with the lithographed like nesses of (ieueral Johnston, common everywhere in the south. THE JfOGF. Of Judge Alexander Bives, presiding in the federal 'ourt, it is stated that Grant will assign him to Chase's place. I know not how the rumor gained cur rency, but people here believe it, and deem Judife Bives worthy of any posi tion. He is a brother of the great Vir ginian, William C. Rives, famous, be fore my time, in American politics. The judge is appareuLly about fifty-five years of age, erfectly erect, his hair short and white, and so with his En glish whisker and Greeley bat. He is most laborious and prompt iu discharg ing his official duties, aud his decisious are quoted as high authority in the courts of the Old T)omiuion. A SENATOR While 1 was writing this there came alone, with elastic step and slender form and white head crowned by a Panama hat, another Johnston, a nephew of those patriarchs of whom I was talking. He is one of the federal senators from Virginia, and esteemed most popular especially in western por tions of the State. Of his ability lam not prepared to speak. He is certainly affable enough, recognizingeach country bumpkin encountered on his way fro in the hotel to the court-room, and as he walks rapidly up the hill his would-be competitor for the senatorship, the irre pressible, inevitable and eternal FAYETTE M'VTLLEN comes blowing, bumping and twisting himself adowu the highway. He was of the old congress that we now read ab ,ut incredulously as of deeds done in old Borne when newly born chivalry was wresting 8a bins wives from unwilliug guests and husbands. Then, too, McMullen was of the congress that sat in Richmond and levied tithes iu kind, like good ieo ple as they were, aud provided for the payment of government interest cou pons iu peanuts. I've often thought that the joUiest historical painting of modern times would have the pale, ghostlv, Rodin-like Confederate sec retary' of the treasury, shoveling out North Carolina peanuts in re deuiption of treasury notes. Tluie would be food, somewhat dry, per haps, for reflection, in suoh a painting. Of this govemmeut at Kichmoud, Pay ette McMullin was a uoisy coustitueut element. He and Foote were given to speech-making, aud while Koote has gone to Washington to practice law Mi'MuIlin aspires to a seat in the United Htate oewnte. He has been, proerly enough, preparing himself for the ioei tiou by keeping his wouth shut, and editing a vry respectable pewspaper aud to this fact lis is indebted for his only chance of success. THE COUNTRY grows in attractiveness. The mountain sides pioutise abundant harvests of grain, and thi wild district becomes as rich in herds of cattle as the plains of Texas. I was amazed to hear a farmer sav that he had seveu hundred cattle, and a neighbor twelve hundred. But Virginia is growing rich, aud this por tion of the State is rapidly rejuvenated. Of this hereafter. D. From an Occasional Correspondent. Osceola, June 3. I have not Been Mr. H. F. Beet's reply in the Avalanche to my communication of a recent date in regard to the political aspect of af fairs in Mississippi county, but learn that he does not deny the main allega tions therein contained, and, in fact, confesses the case, with the exception of a few minor details such, for instance, as that he was not present in person when Mr. Driver took possession of the office. I believe that Mr. Best's state ment in this respect is ti-ue. His deputy was in the office, and made the delivery of books, papers, etc., to Driver. Mr. Best came up to this town on Sunday, and among his first acts after reaching here was to indite the following resignation to Governor Baxter, delivering it to Mr. Driver, the present incumbent, to forward: Osceola, abk., Jane 2, IS73. To his Excellency, Elisha Baxter. Governor of the state or Arkansas: For reasons satisfactory to myself, and believed to be for the best interests of all parties concerned, allow me to tender to your excellency my resignation of my commission of the office of sheriff of the county of Mississippi, and State of Ar kansas, which was issued me by your predecessor, Hon. O. A. Hadley, gover nor, etc., aud pray your excellency to accept my said resignation. I am, sir, your obedient servant. h. f. best. WHAT POTENT REASONS " satisfactory to himself, and believed to lie for the best interests of all the parties concerned " can have induced Best to have taken this step, 1 leave to wiser beads than mine, and to those more skilled in " ways that are dark and tricks that are vain " to discover. I am certain, however, that I speak the sen timents of every good and true man in Mississippi county when I say that, whether they were " satisfactory " to Best or not, they are eminently so to " us, the people," and as one of the " parties concerned " we are also certain that the resignation is to the very best interests of the citizens and tax-payers of Mississippi county. Baying this, we wave Mr. Best MISSISSIPPI. The Press in Annual Con rcation Large Attendance of InLue.ntial Editors. Orations and Poems Election of cers for the Ensuing Tear. Offi- Specie shipments from New York, yesterday, one hundred and thirty thou sand aoiitra. A FOND ADIEU, hoping soon to do the same for Mr. Harden, the contestant for the office of clerk, against James B. Best, the duly elected clerk, an old citizen and a quon dam newspajer man. With the resig nation of this individual Harden), which 1 understand from the very best ant horny is also prepared and ready to be forwarded to the governor, Missis sippi county will be once more free from the yoke of the carpetbagger and scala wag, and the reign of radical and negro terrorism, inaugurated anew in 1872, oy hitzpatrick, under orders from rladlev, McClure & Co., of Little Bock, comes to an end, we hope forever. That their blood has not "washed out their foul footstei' pollution," is a matter of won der to all who have seen with how high a hand they have lorded it over us, aud is a strong proof of the long-suffering and law-aDidiug qualities of our people THE LATEST ATTEMIT at those high old Radical tactics of might ' runs right, was tried in this vil lage on last Sunday evening, and "Like the dying dolphin's Unted throes. The hue that tinge the f&lllug rose. And a' the colors Eve betowa," the effort was the most brilliant failure yet made; but for sublime impudence equals any of its predecessors. The hero of the faux pas was ONE JOE RICHARDS, ex-deputy United States marshal, who came up here after the "raid" last fall to make arrests, and who, with his backers, "ran" the election here in No vember. This Richards, on arriving in town on Sunday, went over to the board ing-houe of Mrs. Fletcher, where Hon. J. W. Fox, the newly-appointed udge of this circuit t who was to hold court here on the next day ), was stop ping, and in an interview with the judge, showed so much insolence and intolerence mat me latter informed Inm that he, Judge Fox, proposed to hold Bus term or the circuit court, and to manage things to suit not Mr. Rich aids, but himself; and furthermore, that he intended to recogn.'ze as sheriff the man whom he found in the office de facto, as such, provided he bore the commission of the governor of the State. This plain de termination on the part of the judge to do what he conceived right, irrespective of partisan views, or the plans laid down for him, so enraged Kichard that he actually had the audacity to THREATEN THE JUDGE, asserting that if Driver, or any other than Best Mre recognized, or, in fact, if Fox did not conform to his views and suffer him to run the court, he would bring down on Osceola a force of militia sufficient to make him to do so. This threat was met with the scorn and con tempt that it deserved by Judge Fox, and Richards, finding himself foiled in his attempts to bluff, retired in good or der to organize what proved to be a still more ignominious failure and inglorious defeat. AN ATTACK ON A LONE WOMAN. Drumming up a few of his uegro asso ciates, he made his way to the Ross house, where Mrs. J. B. Hart (the wife of Captain Hart, formerly United States revenue officer here) resided, and de manded from her a case of arms belong ing to the State, and left iu Captain Hart's charge last fall, during the raid. Mrs. Hart, who has indeed a big heart of her own, refused point blank to de liver up the muskets, some twenty three iu number, and Richards fell back on his threatening tactics again. The lady, however, was firm, and assured him that if he attempted to take the muskets from her by force she would call on the men of Osceola to protect her and them. Sheriff Dixon mean while waBuotifft-A of this FLANK MOVEMENT, aud came up in Ki hards' rear iu such "form and force" that that hero imme diately wilted and incontinently va moosed. Later in the evening, learning that if he remained in towu until the next morning he was likely to sre 1be inside of Osceola jail, when the Ilelle Memphis came along the valiant youth took passage on her for a morecongeuial atmosphere. And this ended the last attempt on the liberties of our people. Det us hope it will never be reiwated. CIRCUIT COURT. By an act of the last legislature, the counties of St. Francis, Poinsett, Cross. Crittenden and Mississippi, were erected into a circuit, and Hon. John W. Fox was appointed judge of the same by Governor Baxter, Captain H. M. Mc Yeigh receiving his appointment as dis trict attorney at the same time. These appointments, as you are well aware, have met with the warmest support and indorsement by the people of the whole circuit, especially in those parts thereof where court has been held, viz, Poin sett, Cross aud St. Francis, and thus far in Mississippi, and we may add that the judge aud attorney need only make their appearance iu the other parts of the circuit to insure the same encomia. IN ST. FRANCIS, COUNTY, for the first time in many years, there has beeu a general shaking-up of evil doers. Three convictions were secured, after infinite trouble, by the district-attorney, and the parties were promptly seutenoed to the iteultentiary by the presiding judge, much to the surprise and consternation or the law-breaking portion of the community I have stretched my letter much beyond my original intentions, and as the "mail waits" I close abruptly, deferring further Information until another day. Special to the Appeal. Meridian, Miss., June 6. The Mis sissippi Press association have been in their ninth annual convention at this place for the last two days, aud ad journed at four o'clock this evening. Over fifty delegates were in attendance, representing the leading editorial ability of the State. In fact, no previous con vention lias been M largely attended by the leading members of the State fra ternity. The annual oration, by P. Y. Harper, was a fine production. The an nual essay, by J. A. Stevens, of Colum bus, was replete with learning aud wit; but the crowning success was the poem, by Mrs. Ada Vane, editor of the Lex ington Advertiser, upon the press, and the poem of Miss Jennie Hunt, of Vicks burg, whose noni de pturr.e is "Madge," which, by uuanimous reouest, was read by her. The poem is a fine one, aud Vicksburg, her home, as well as the State may well feel proud of the fair and gifted daughter. The business proceed ings of the convention were highly in teresting. The following gentlemen were elected officers for the ensuing year : A. J. Frantz, president; Freeman Ran dolph, first vice-president; P.K.Mey ers, second vice-president; W.J. Adams, secretary ; J.

In the first place it seems to be the understanding that the secretary oi interior uas no pow er of direction iu the premises . or,at least he will take no present action, the In dians having violated their treaty obli gallons by resorting U hostilities, and thus placed themselves beyond the law and supervision of the department. Secondly, the United States troops hav ing conducted operations against them, then their custody belongs to the military the same as pris oners of war, captured or surren dered, or other persous taken in arms against the authority of the United States, and guilty of atrocious acts Thirdly, these premises being settled, the question as to what shall be done with the Modoc prisoners, whether they shall be held by the military commis sion or remitted to the civil authorities will be submitted to the attorney-gen eral by the military authorities for his opinion, which will govern the commis sion iu the case, and in this course the present secretary of the interior and General Sherman are in accord.

Kesoiutious were adopted taking strong grounds against the action of the temperance party, the position of which, they claim, has be come of such a nature as to be a source of alarm not only to the brewing inter ests but to the interests of the public at large, by encroaching on personal lib erty and interfering with innocent so cial habits and customs, and influencing politicians to vote for measures of a dan gerous character, and protesting against beiug classed with dealers and manu facturers of distilled liquors, and calling on members of this congress to maintain aud defend a proper distinction be tween the two lines of trade, and resolving to assume au antagonistic posi tion to the teetotal party and appeal to the common sense of the public, request ing the officials of local associations to place memseives in correspondence w im the leaders of political parties, and use all legitimate meaus to secure the elec tion of members to me legislature in each State who will look after the inter est of the brewer.

The first of the grand jubilee concerts was given in the immense depot ot me Unieago, nock Island and Pacific and Michigau South ern railroad, this evening to the largest audience ever assembled in ( hicago; not less than twenty thousand people being present. The accommodations for the vast crowd were not of a sump tuous character, consisting of rough wooden seats, all on a level, but the musical part of the performance was excellent. The first number of the pro gramme this evening was an original hymn, entitled Chicago Htpnn of Praise, written by B. H. Campbell, and sung to the tune of Old Hundred. The singing of the hymn was received with great applause, which it well deserved. The next piece, the Chorus Festival, by Leutiier, was rendered oy the orchestra in good style, rne nymn, Anqel ot Peace, by the grand chorus and full or chestra, was well received as were also the operatic selections, intro ducing solos for cornet ( Arbuckle), eu phonon tRiggs) and clarionet (Hlggins). The next selection, The Heavens are Telling, from Haydn's oratorio of The Creation, was received wnn enmusiasttc applause. A cornet solo by Arbuckle followed, and the first part of the pro gramme ended witn me omr-span-gled Banner, by a fall chorus and or chestra, Mrs. McGaiu singing the solos with such effect as to secure au enthusiastic encore. The second part of the programme opened with the well knowu overture to William Tell, which was effectively rendered hy the full or chestra, and was followed by the chorus, tire the Conipxering Hero vovtes. 'rue fourth number on the pro gramme was the Anvu ttmru. and its rendition fully merited the storm of applause with which it was greeted. The audience insisted on a repetition, and the concert ended with the hymn, Xearer, my God, to Thee, by a lull cho rus and the orchestra, the immense audience joining, and producing a mag nificent effect. The second concert oc curs this evening. The West Tennessee executive com mittee of the centennial commission, met at the hall of the chamber of com merce at half-past three o'clock yester day afternoon, W. R. Moore, presiding, and William Karri.-, acting secretary. The chairman explained the object of the meeting to be for the purpose of re ceiving reports of committees and other matters pertaining to the interest of the great national centennial exhibition to be held at Philadelphia iu 1876. Judge J. T. Swayne, chairman of the committee appointed to select proper committees, etc., submitted the following: The committee appointed to report what committees are necessary, and the memliers thereof and persons therein, beg leave to report that? an executive committee is the only one they think it accessary to appoint at this time, whose duties shall be, during the recess of this West Tennessee centennial committee, to attend to all the business of this com mittee that may need attention, and re port the same, with their action, to this committee for approval, modification, or rejection ; and In all respects to tor ward the interests and business in hand, any seven of whom, after public no-' t ice of a meeting, shall be a quorum to do business; and we report the following names of persons to constitute said ex ecutive committee, and who, we believe, will attend to its duties: William R. Moore, Amos Woodruff, T. A. Nelson, W. H. Stephens, William Paris, B. Fen ton, F. A. Tyler, M. Burke, L B. Eatou, M. J. Wicks, John (Tubbins, W. J. Smith, James Roosa, R. B. Hurt, J. H. McCampbell, G. W. Walters, 8. L. Warren, J. C. Marley,A. Gardner, John Norman, William Jarrell, P. T. Jones, H. L. Bentley, W. H. McHaney. E. B. Hall, James A. Itogers, W. F. Dough erty, Whitfield Tyler. Judge Swayne explained in regard to the appointment of the executive com mittee that the greater number should lie selected from the vicinity of Mem phis, to facilitate the getting together of a quorum for the transaction of busi ness, but that one from each county had been selected to represent their respect ive loel interests. The report was adopted. Judge Swayne also presented a vol uminous address to the citizens of West Tennessee in behalf of the great nation al celebration of the one-hundredth an niversary of American independence. We regret the great length of the docu ment prevents our giving it in full this morning. It is an able paper, and will be read with interest by the people of West Tennessee when placed before them, as the committee propose doing at an early day. An argument was sprung as te the proper mode of publishing the address which resulted in the appointment of a committee of three from the executive committee, with Judge J. T. Swayne as chairman, who were authorized to cause the address of the executive committee to le published, altogether or in parts, in all the papers of West Tennessee, and that said papers are hereby respectfully requested to publish the same. Mr. Fenton, of the executive commit tee, made the following report with re gard to the appointment of permanent secretary for West Tennessee: The committee appointed to report a suitable person as permanent secretary beg to report that they have had the subject under serious consideration, deeming the office a very important one for the centennial interests of West Ten nessee, to fill which the person selected should not only tie willing to serve, but he should have ' the peculiar qualifica tions necessary to this office. We have the pleasure to report the name of J. T. Swayue as such persou, and have ob tained his consent to serve. The report was unanimously adopted, and Judge Swayne took bis seat as per manent secretary of the West Tennes see eeotunuial executive committee. A number of letters from committees in different parts of the country were presented by the chairman, which were received and ordered filed. Mr. Green moved "that the chairman of this committee shall, by correspond ence with the general officers of the cen tennial exhibition, ascertain the facts connected with the refusal to recognize Hon. F. C. Johnson as a commissioner from Indiana, it having been published, with the approval of Governor Hen dricks, that the circumstances attend ing the refusal indicate a local lunueuce discreditable to the general commission." This motion sprung a lyrely debate. and was finally lost. lue regular business being transacted. the meeting wss addressed by several gentlemen, and then adjourned: to meet at Expositiou hall ou call of the chair man.
