i THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL. 1 : MEMPHIS, TENK; STOTDAY, MAY !Os 1874. VOL.-NO. ESTABLISHED 1840. e.Jv roxERUL iionons AHD ceresio- KIAJL9. Next Batnrday the annual celebration of the virtue and worth of Confederate soldiers will occur in Elmwood. An oration will be pronounced by General Gordon, of this city, and the soldiers' jintves, by fair hands, will be decorated with choicest flowers of springtime. In the criminal court yesterday the Case of Stephen Dlllecella, the deputy nherlff charged with tampering with the jury in the McLean embezzlement case, and that of Louis Moore, ono of the ju rora in said case, charged with contempt In violating the instructions of the court, and of endeavoring to illegally influence a verdict for the defendant, was argued before Judge Flippin. Upon conclusion of the argumentthe courtuuhesltatingly announced its conviction of the guilt of the parties, and at once pronounced judgment, sentencing Louis Moore to pay a fine of fifty dollars and be impne oned ten days in the county Jail, ami Stephen Dillecelio to like fine and im prisonment, and, in addition, to give approved bond in three thousand dollars to appear at the next term of the court to answer the charge of bribery of jurors, This U the first bombshell cast Into the camp of the oorruptionists, to be followed whu the grand jury meets, on the third Monday iu this month, by such a broad side of indictments as will startle our community into the gratifying be lief that henceforth trial by jury in tbe criminal court, especially ki important cases, where large sums of money are involved, will not be a solemn farce ft trial by jury empannelled to aeqtrit. We eay to Judge Flippin and the attorney-general, that In purging tbe ctiaiinal court of deleterious In fluences tlwy will be sustained by the solemn indorsement of this whole com MHoHy. It k nearly time that jury trial, especially in cases of great mag nitude to the people should be what the law intended animpartial medium of jestiee between man and man. The en forcement of the law can not damage tbebonPdt citizen; all others must take tbe consequence of its violations. The Xew Orleans Times of ILursday has an article on the "Raising and Spin ning of Cotton," in whi'jh it contrasts the profits made by raising and spinning cotton, setting forth many indisputable faets going to show that we must diver sify our industries and become more tfawouguly ee?j-sustalning than we have ever yet be-n. Reliance on a single crop has '.eiKled to impoverish our plant- -kit U3 so increase the number of our Material resources that the failure of a Single iuterest may not be followed by utter ruiu, as raising cotton is the creat Interest of the south, and as the crop of east year was raised for the world's bene fit at a loss to the producers of over thirty millions of dollars, it may be interesting to turn from the culture of the fleece to tbe spinning thereof. Fail River, M&sechu?etts, is at present an import ant and prosperous manufacturing enter. Dividends of one hundred and forty per cent, have been declared in one year, and the stock of a bank doing tbe business for the mills exclusively,' quadrupled in ten years. These facta are indieativeof extraordinary successes, and show a vast difference between the profits of spinning and raising cotton, ami force upon our attention the ques tion, "If the profit of manufacturing cot- j to is so great at Fall River, why t-hould K net be as great, or greater, here in ! 1. . ...1- 1 i 1 . r I evtibu, .Lime wte staple iu a unraestic product, and motive power in unlimited quaaUiie Is lying idle?" They have tested the matter in Georgia to their great o d vantage. Let us, in other por tions of the south, devote some of the muscle hitherto used in raising cotton i Ms conversion into textile fabrics. In tbat direction lies our prosperity. Governor John C. Brows and Comptroller Bureh have never lunded a ritigle State bond or coupon which was not, as they had every reason xo believe, honestly issued. The bogus Mineral Home, and other like issues of recent years, that were not taken up by Gover nor Brown's predces&nrs, have not been, and never will be, funded during his ad ministration. The State debt as funded U, and will be, an honestly created and honestly due debt. The bonds funded were sold by honest men, for holiest purposes, and in honest compliance with the State's laws. Therefore the rate of taxation cannot be fixed till it is known jweeisely what sum will be required an nually to meet the Interest annually ac cruing on tbe State's funded debt. As to tbe rest of sums gathered by taxation, the amount depends upon the economy practiced by tbe legislature and upon re forme to be effected by a State constitu tional convention, to be convoked by tbe next legislature. It ie ot inflation per se that the west ami south demands. We would have tbe volume of currency in circulation maintained. It Is absorbed almost wholly by us taxed bonds. Every other species of property is enormously bur deeed, and currency, to be profitable, must .become interest-bearing bond?. Tlwse are again used, when all other praparty is useless, in borrowing money. THE PKEE Oil EN'S BANK. A rrfc,ofi to Amend the Charter of the I'rredmcn'3 Savings and Trust Cempanr. 'WAtHUXOTOK, May 8. It is reported Item tbe bouse eetmnittee on banking aud eurreocy to-day, that the bill to ameud tbe charter of the freedraeu's savings and trust eompany provides that it sball be the duty of the trustees f said eompany to make loans to the' extent f one-balf of the deposits by tbem received, upon bonds aud notes, beeured by mortgages on deeds of trust upon unencumbered real estate, situated in the vicinity of the agenoy or branch of said company from which deposits are received, worth, upon a cash ap praisement, at least double tbe amount of said loans, exclusive of buildings; Ibeotberhalf ibey shall invest in United S4ates bond,and keep on deposit in some itatteaal lHk stteh sums as may be ueceMury to meet current expenses. It is made the duty of the ofllcers of the bank to collect, as speedily as may be lo, all sums of money loaned upon Teal estate outside of the States rom which it is received, and as booh as it ' may be collected, loan the funds in ac Obrdance witli the preceding part of this aet. When it shall appear that tbe in tareM of depositors may require, it shall be lawful for the trustees, by and with the consent of the comptroller of tbe currency, at any time to choose any of the agencies or urauoues oi tiie corpora tion to pay to the depositors of such agencies or branches a pro rata amount of the principal and interest which may be due them, and also a ratable propor tion of aoy surplus which may have ac cumulated whenever it may be deemed luivisalile or when so ordered by con gress. General business and affairs of coqtoratious shall in like manner be closed up by trustees of corporations, under the direction of the comptroller of currency.

A gracefal tribute to the memory of a French JewWi officer has recently been raid by General Chanzr. covernor- genera 1 of Algeria.

At half-past eight o'clock tbls morning, two Baxter men, standing near the southeast corner of Main aud Markhara streets, walked across tho etreet toward three or four of Brooks's men, all colored. One of the latter pulled a pistol and fired at the Baxter msa, rushing into the middle of the street as he did so. The fire was re. turned, and the negro was shot dead. This was the occasion of numerous other shots, about forty in all the Baxter men firing from Stoddard's corner, and a few Brooks men. who were in the Me tropolitan hotel, firing from that quar ter. The United States troops at the city hall ran out the truck of the hook and ladder company, barricading Mark ham street, and forming a line behind it, Matters were soon quieted. AN ENGAGEMENT ON THE OUTPOSTS. About one hour after the firing this morning, in which one of Brooks's col ored troops was killed at the intersection of Main and Markham streets, about twenty shots were fired in the southern part Of the city. Three of Brooks's col ored men were out recruiting. They were encountered by a party of Baxter ites, and a fight ensued. About eight shots were fired, but no ono was hurt. The Brooksltes were captured and brought to the guardhouse. iarxicauing and fortifying continues on an sides. BUSINESS SUSPENDED. All the stores were closed to-day. There is no attempt to do any business, The women and children living In the neighborhood of the statehouse have moved away. The ministers of the city called on tbe people to uuite in the ser vices to-morrow to God to avoid blood shed and see that right prevail. ALMOST A QUORUM. Nearly enough members of the legis lature have already arrived to make a quorum in both houses. Arrangements have been made for tbe legislature to meet in one of the town halls, outside the limits of tbe statehouse. Baxter received several companies to day 10 relu force him, and now has a considerable force in the city. HOW THE STORY IS TOLD IN ST. LOUIS. St. Louis, May 8. The Globe's Little Rock special, iu giving an account of the capture to-day of the steamer Hal lie, says that Colonel Brooks's com mand overtook her at Palermo, and Captain Gibbons, whose company was nearest to her, demanded her surrender, and ordered her to come to the shore. Captain Sam Houston cried out in re ply, "Come aud take us," and the men aboard fired a volley at Brooks's men. Gibbons again damunded a surrender of the boat, and another vollpv was fired. Gibbons's company then returned the fire, and other companies coming up, tbe boat was riddled with shot, the steam-pipe was disabled, and she drift ed to the opposite bank of the river, where she was subsequently captured and brought there, with tbe killed and wounded on board. A SETTLEMENT PENDING. Washington, May 9. With a view of effecting a compromise in tbe Ar kansas difficulty, the representatives of Baxter and Bro kB called conjointly at the bureau of justice to-day, and had a conference with te attorney-general. They arc now in consn'tatlon, and hope to devise a plan of settlement. It is further desired by them that in case the negotiations result in an arrangement, it shall have tbe approval of the gov ernment, In which case it will be agreed upon as a decision to which all parties will be required to submit. Should the different attorneys fail to agree, the attorney-general may declare his opinion in the cae. He says the question has been one ot the most perplexing char acter. It is very certain that the cov- ernment officials will be glad if the rep resentatives of the factions effect a set tlement AGREEMENT BETWEEN TnE ATTORNEYS AND AGENTS OF BAXTER AND BROOKS AT WASHINGTON. Washington. May 0. It is agreed, this May 9, 1S7-J, at Washington, Dis trict of Columbia, between the respect ive attorneys and agents of Joseph Brooks and Kllsha Baxter, claimants for the office of governor of the State of Ar kansas, that, on account of tho con flicting of parties, and a division of sentiment among the people of the State, the said legislatures! that Btatfl shall be called by said Brooks aud Bax ter to meet at an extra session the fourth Monday of May, A.

That they shall receive and entertain a communication from Brooks, setting forth specifically the ground for his claim to the office of governor, as well as Ids reasons for contesting Baxter's rlghtii thereto; that they shall investi gate the facts ind allegations so set forth by Brooks, and such Investigation shall be conducted in the manner prescribed by tbo constitution and laws of the State, giving to both parties a full and fair hearing, upon such competent and relevant testimony as either party may offer. The legislature shall determine, in the manner provided by law, which of the contestants received at the No vember election, 1872, a majority of the lsgal votes, and de lare the result, and tbo parties sball abide by that actisn. Brooks and Baxter shall each relieve from du;y and send home all hU .troops, retaining only as many as each may think necessary as a body-guard at Little Rock, not exceed ing oue eompany. All warlike demon strations ere to fortiiwith cease, and both parties are to keep absolute peace and re'raln from any Interference with each other, or his adherents, till the contest is finally decided by the legislature, or the uatlonal government has taken action thereon, and until tbe determination by the general assembly as to who was le gally elected governor, In tbe contest to be insde lielore that body by Joseph Brooks. The questiou as to which of tne con testants has the leeal rieht to exercise the functions of the office of governor mav. at bis discretion, be determined by the President on applications hereto fore maue to mm uy tne respective con testants, and that the legislature shall receive from each claimant ot the office such communication as either may send to It till the contest lor tue oiuce is unai ly decided by the general assembly. I submit the foreeoins plan of adjust ing the difficulties iu Arkansas to the respective claimants to the office of eov eruor, it haviug been agreed to by all their friends and attorneys here, subject to approval, and I have to say that tbe President earnestly desires its adoption by botu parties. O. II.

Letter from the Ureal Indiana Senator, Correct log Misapprehensions as to the Financofcill. The FortjiFour Millions-of Bescric A Sharp Criticism on the Presi dent's Position, Etc. Indianapolis, May 9. The follow ing is a8ummary of the Jetler published In this morning's Journal, from Sena tor Morton: "There appears to l.a a misapprehension in a portion Of the press in regard to the provisions of the finance bill, which lately passed the two houses of congress but from which the President withheld his approval. The bill is criticised as if it authorized a new emission of United States notes, which 7uld Increase tl'e dlfScdlty of a Te:nm to tpC.lo payments, and thereby Involve & breach of the national faith, pledged for the redemption of these notes in coin. Tbe finst section of the bill, and tho only one which relates to United States notes,is in these wordst 'Tho maximum amount of United States notes la hereby fixed at four hun dred millions of dollars.1 Beference is then made to the act of June SO. 18&1, April 12, 1860. and March 4. 1SGS. to snow the euect of Ihw proviso. The right of tho secretary to reissue any part of this forty-four millions, or to in crease the circulation of these notes above tiiree hundred and fifty-six mil lions, has been continually denied by many lawyers in congress and out or it, and a large proportion of the press; and the question cannot be said to be free from doubt At the last session of con gress, a majority of the finance commit tee of the senate, through the chairman, Mr. Sherman, reported to the senate) for ita adoption, the following resolu tion: Jlstolced. That in the opinion of the senate the secretary of the treasury bus not the power, under tbe existing laws, to issue United States notes for any por tion of the forty-four million dollars, retired aud cancelled under the sev eral committees. On that subject my first impression had been against the existence of the power; but on further examination I thought it fairly deducted from a comparison of statistics, and pewonally urged upon the President and secretary the free u?eof the forty-four million re serve, to check the progress ot the pan ic, and alleviate its disasters. In his veto message, and in his letter to Messrs. Clallin and Anthony on the tweuty-eighth of September, the Pres ident treats the forty-four millions as being an existing reserve a sum of money already in the treasury, as mueh so as a like sum received from taxes, to be used at the discretion of the secretary of the treasury for certain pur poses. He regards the maximum amount of United States notes as four hundred million dollars, and treats the forty-four millions as in actual exist ence. The first section of the bill de clares the law to be what the President and secretary have assumed it to be. It declares that tbe maximum amount of United States notes sball be four hun dred million dollars; that is the amount beyond which the issue shall not be ex tended. The other section of the bill authorizes the increase of the bank-note circulatiou to the amount of forty-six million dollars, to be distributed among the States having less than their pro portion, upon the basis of the act of 1803, the new banks to be established upon the terms, liabilities and restrictions im posed upon existing banks, being re quired to secure their bills by deposits of bonds, redeemable in United States notes, upon demand, over their own counters, or on one of the redemption cities; and with the additional restric- i Hon that all banks, old and new, shall keep one-fourth.of the coin-interest they receive on their bonds deposited for the security of their notes. This provision looked forward, and was the first step taken iu that direction by congress. The forty million dollars provi led for came fully thirty millions short of equalizing the distribution among the States upon the basis of the act of lSGo. Under that act the New England States were enti tled to lees than forty million dol lars, but received one hundred aud ten millions; and the other eastern States had an excess of nearly twelve millions. The most of the friends of the bill desired free banking that Is, the restriction taken off as to the amount and locality of the circulation of nation al banks; that the people should be left free In every part of the United States to establish national banks wherever and whenever their local wants and ne cessities demanded them. The purpose of this letter is not to enter into any de- lenss or tne second section or tne mil, but to remove the apprehensions that appear to prevail in regard to tbe first. Whether the volume of tbe currency Is sufficient for the business of the country is a question ot tact about wnicn men may honestly differ. During the four years preceding the panic there had been an actual contraction of the currency, aud a much larger comparative contrac tion, resulting from the growth or popu lation and business. A majority of con gress wereof the opinion that to produce a restoration oi counuen;e, a speeuy re vival of business and a return to the prosperity which was so suddenly de stroyed by the panic, some adiition should be made to the volume of the currency. That the bill which has failed to become a law would have produced some contraction is undoubtedly true, but it would have been almost entirely in tbe stock market in Kew York. It is a well understood fact that the reserves ot the western and soutbern banks kept in New York have been loaned by the New York bankers almost exclusively upon sail to dealers in stocks, and have thua con tributed to stimulate an unwholesome speculation, and have been of very little benefit to the mercantile or manufactur ing community. The evil resulting from this fact was strikingly illustrated during the panic last fall. Tho stockholders who had borrowed the money were not able to pay the New York banks, and they in turn were unable to pay the country banks, from which the money had been received, and tbui the disaster of the panic was greatly aggravated. This bill in effect, required the banks ouUIde of the redemption 'itie? to keep inree-iounns ot tneir reserve at Dome, ie, and would have withdrawn some mil- lions from the stock market iu New York, which would strengthen the bauks to wlilcu tney beloug, aud would have produced a contraction in quarter where it is pretty well understood that contraction would do no harm. The act of 1809. to fctrengthen the publlo credit, declares that the United States solemnly pieogeu Its faith to make provision at the ear liest practicable period for the redemp tion of tbe United States notes in coiu. Iu the debate upon this bill nobody lias denied the character or binding fcrce of that pledge; but th question as to tue "practicable period" for its performance remaius as open as It was upon the day It was passed. ery few members or either house of congress have agreed upon a method for the resumption of specie payment. While the government is pledged to redeem the legal-tender notes at me earnest practicable period, the purpose to do so should be ever kept Iu view; yet that period is by many not deemed to be practicable when there is great stagnation in business, much labor unemployed, revenues largely fallen off, anu mucn distress anu suuering In every part of the country. Josephine, is offered for sale by the gov ernment, une nas onen wondered wny called Malmalson (bad house). Now that people are talking about it. tbe origin of the term appears to have re sulted irom u ie misdemeanors and rav ages committed by the embarked Nor mans in the ninth century, the name given the house being Mala Mausis. As late as 1241 tbe building was nothing better than a miserable barn. Before the revolution in 17SS, however it had become the site of one of the most agree able chaUaus in the environs of Paris. In 1789 It was purchased by Josephine, where she garnered .tne most aisimguisneu authors and artists of the French capital. Before these assemblies Segouvet read his "I Merite des Femmes," Bouilly declaimed his drama of "L'Abbe de l'Epee," and Arnault recited his fables. Tbe chateau cost Napoleon I, 160.000 francs. Its next owner was a Swedish banker, who sold it to Queen Christine for 600.000 francs, and she in turn ceded it to Napoleon III, for 1,100,000 francs. Tbe government hopes to sell it for 1,500,000. A piece of .grape-vine to which hung a bunch of grapes which Josephine offered to the Emperer Alex ander when he came to visit her on the twenty-seventh of May, 1816, is still preserved in the hot-house. It was three days later that Josephine died. It ;has been supposed that the first Hebrew book ever printed was produced In Boncino, in Italy, in 1484. From a clever article in Macmillan, by a lady named Philiimore, it would seem that this is a mistake. Tbe first book print ed in Hebrew was a pentateuch printed at Bologna In 1482. Thus Italy has In either case tbo honor. The first at tempt at a polyglot bible appears form of a page printed in II .Hebrew, ot psalter nmk m!

In a few days the official an nouncement will appear, giving the date and full partlculas. We congratulate the Mendelssohns and the mem bers of the Cumberland church for this excellent opportunity of again pre senting to our people Handel's sublime oratorio, which was so successfully pro duced a few weeks ago at St Peter's church. The choruses will be augment ed by manv of our cood sincers. Who, on the occasion of the first presentation, were absent The orchestra will be strengthened, and we rely Upon the promise of the society to again be ena bled to announce to our readers a great success. Our patrons of music should not neglect to give this gigantic enter prise of the Mendelssohna their support Those who never heard the grand cho ruses pf the oratorio know not the grandeur of such works. The production of orat rlos in London, Birmingham and ether cities In Eugland bring people to gether Irom the whole kingdom, as if all united in great musical worship. Artists from all countries are called to those cities, and the admission fee fre quently has been from one to five pounds sterling per person. Handel's Oratoria society of New York now are singing some of these oratoiios, and'the greatest eclat attends them. Nilsson's farewell song, on the eve of her departure for Europe, on last Sunday, was the undy ing ''I Know that my Bedeemer Ltv etb," from theoratoro of.27je Messiah. Too much Interest caanot be awakened among our citizens to properly sustain this etibrt of the Mendelssohns to repro duce, at such great cost, the difficult or atoria of The Messiah. Let the people comeforth iu one grand body, and call for a repetition, over and over, of The Met tiah; and if the people will respond, as we have reason to hope they will. let our amateurs and whole corps ot musi cians anticipate their cheerful support, aud unite themselves harmoniously in the ennobling work of advancing proper musical education by the proper means. Let eaclrj and all assist. Let soloists and choristers, sopranos and contraltos, tenors and bas 803, for once dismantle every ietty rea son for withholding their help, and for their loVe for the art, and the pleasure of the love come forward and unite with tbe handfull of indefatigable workers to build up a permanent society. The best of judgment, without fear or favor, will be used to appreciate talent and voice, and for the success of the good of all claims of those entitled to advancement twilbs honored. We have too many fine singers whom we failed to see to The Messiah concert at St Peter's church. We cannot afford to lose the voices of suchsingers, whom we distinct ly remember as shining lights in The Creation. Now is their time t& come forward. Let each and all offer the best for the reputation of the society. We will not be satisfied with the club til! the best is done by the club, and by all of the club. No singer or musician of any ability can reasona bly stand aloof from this, and almost the ouly oratorio-giving society, and claim a place with the disciples of better music. Ve are at liberty to state that the first rehearsal for tbe repetition of The Messiah, will be held on Tuesday evening next, at the rooms of the club. All wishing to participate will promptly attend. In the meantime we are on the qui vive for a rare treat. TELEGRAPHIC EPITOME. Beports from the wheat crop for por tions of Wisconsin are unfavorable.

In recording the death of this estimable yonns man, we are forcibly reminded of the uncertainty of hum .a lire. In the enjoyment or his usual excelle. I health, he le. this home In Marshall county. Mississippi, some time In March. After an llinau of a brief duration, he was removed from tbe scene of bis useful ness to another and, we confidently bell ere, a better world. The writer remembers him from his earlleflt years, and with sorrow real ized tbe sad truth that we shall no more be hold him on earth. In all the relations of life his character was lovely to contemplate. As a son, he wai ever dutiful and obedient, kind and affectionate to all with whom he was associated, modest In his deportment, and was universally beloved by his acquaintances. He was remarkable for his enterprise, exem plary habit", and for principles the most In corruptible, lie poasewsed a mind of no com mon order. Improved by culture, and if It had pleased an overruling Providence to have prolonged his life, he wonld doubtless have terved his generation welL Language Is in adequate to express the full sorrow occasioned by the death of our young friend. Memory will long delight to Unger on his many noble qualities. The eonsolaUon afforded in the recolectlon that we shall meet again In a bet ter world than this can alone sotten the grief of his sorrowing relatives and friends. J. B. M.
