TH MEMPHIS JJA.ILY APPEAL-WEDNESDAY JUNE 17, 1874. r r fflMPiilS APPEAL WED.VSIjaT MOIiXISG, JUNE 17, 1874 OISJElTIOXS AWAIHtlT PATIXO OUK STATE IE1IT AXSWCBED. Let us now examine some of the ob jections that are urged against paying tlie debt ot the State. It is eometimes said that many of the bonds were ille gally arfd fraudulently issued "by a legis lature and governor that did not repre sent the people. If this were true it would furnish no excuse for repudiating the legal and duly authorized bonds. To pay only three percent, interest, as some recommend, on all the bonds, would be to treat the honest and dishonest bonds alike, and to make the holders of the honest bonds suffer because some other men held dishonest bonds. If bonds were illegally issued, why did the former legislature separate the illegal and fraudulent from theihonest and true? .This question has been before two or -three conservative legislatures, and they have sustained and approved all the bonds now outstanding which the State proposes to pay. If these were Illegal and unauthorized bonds they have been returned into tho State treasury by the railroad companies under acts passed by conservative legislatures. We have paid the bonds .said to be fraudulent anu because sucti were issued some uow propose to repudiate the bonds admitted by all to have been legally or properly iaiued. This would le monstrous. It is sometimes said that one generation has no right to make another generation pay for its luxury and extravagance. This is not a fair statement of the question. One gener ation that contracts debts for property, which property goes to another genera tion, has a moral as well as legal right to expect the second generation to pay those debts, because they have received the property. Tennessee contracted a large debt for her State capital, her be nevolent Institutions, her Internal im provement system, and the present gen eration enjoys the benefits of all these. By adopting her internal improvement system, the value of her land increased in ten years over one hundred million dollars. That system will enable her to yo on increasing in wealth and prosper ity, unlets her credit as a State should le destroyed. Tennessee has a" great deal to show for ber State debt, though much of it may have been unwisely and perhaps imprudently contracted. That repudiation would destroy all hopes of improvement iu the State herealter, beth publicly and privately, is most cer tain. All her enterprises would be stopped, capital and labor would 'be driven from the State, and she would commence retrograding. "Why -would this be so? The answer is plain. No people would have any confidence in any community, the majority of the members of which were unwilling to pay their public debts. It would be i taid, if you would repudiate your public debt, you would repudiate your private debts also. On this account no repudia ting State ever presents an inviting field for immigration, capital or labor. The loss which we would sustain in one year us the effects of repudiation would be as much as we would have to pay in order to meet our obligations in ten years. Missouri and Tennessee furnish two illustrations of the value of preserving State credit, and of the advantage of meeting our obligations. 'Tennessee Jailed for several- years to pay the interest on her bonds. Missouri, the yeatafter the war, paid the interest on whaf she could, and what she could not 1 .ay she then funded. What has been the result? Missouri has improved much more rapidly than Tennessee, and her people are much more-prosperous. although she has much highr taxes, will notice in future articles tho plan suggested by some of paying only three per cent. Interest upon our bonds, and letting the remainder He over. This plan is liable to most serious objections, It has the evil of repudiation and places upon the country a permanent debt. anybody else who happened to be short of money. His private character ap pears to be simply detestable. Wejwero obliged to strike out of our correspond ent's letter several passages which might have been offensive to delicacy, but which truthfully describe notorious events in this precious governor's life.1' And yet Moses is the legitimate result of Radical reconstruction.

William Henry Harrison, the son of a signer of the Declaration of Indepen dence, and a Virginian by birth, in 1835, at Yincennes, Indiana, pronounced slavery a great curse, and said: Again, in some of the States, and in sections of others, the black population far exceeds the white. Some of the the emancipators propose an immediate abolition. What is the proposition, then, as itregards these States and parts or States, but the alternatives of amalga mation with the blacks, or an exchange ,.;.., ...1,1. t. T . 1. VI CllUUklUii3 Wlil 1 IB UlSLa HUJT man of common sense who does not be lieve that the emancipated blacks, be ing a majority, will not insist upon a lull participation of political rights with the whites: and. when possessed of these. will they not contend for a full share of social rights also ? What, but the ex tremity of weakness and folly, could in duce any one to think that such proposi tions as these could be listened to by a people so intelligent as the southern Stales ? Further, the emancipators generally declare, that it is their inten tiou to effect tiieir object (although their acts contradict the assertion) by no other means than by convincing the slaveholders that the immediate eman cipation of the slaves is ca'ied lor both by moral obligations and sound policjf. General Harrison was elected Presi dent with these declarations of his be fore the country, in 1810, and many of the Whig speakers Insisted upon the stump that the very consequences which now excite and batrass congress and the country would follow immedi ate emancipation. The above facts are I Pennsylvania reproduced and published by that ac- I south Carolina complisued gentleman oi Kicnmonu James .Lyons, in order to show that the prophesy embodied in General Harri son'3 declarations is not properly ascribed to Mr. Calhoun. CANOMZATIOY or COLOJIBU.S. Christopher Columbus, whose deeds our Italian fellow-countrymen are ac customed to celebrate, is sought to be canonized. The doctors of the " canon law," as it is called, are considering means by which the Genoese seaman may be properly robed in saintly vest ments of ecclesiastical honor and im mortality. It is now alleged that the church makes the concession to the heroic old teaman on the ground that his act of discovery was "in spired," just as our friend Signaigo was inspired, not very long ago, when he addressed his Italian fellow-country men in New York city when Italian unity and empire were celebrated. If the claims of Columbus to this apotheo sis be conceded, there is reason to fear that in after years other saints will ap pear, neither more nor less pious than the great Italian navigator, claiming the same honors and for the very same deeds. If we may give credence to Bra- zilian newspapers and to the Society of Arts of Hfo Janeiro, there has been dis covered, not far from the Brazilian capi tal, a eogper-plate on which Is recorded the name and date of arrival in the Amazon of a Phoenician ship. Its cap tain was a subject of Alexander the Great. He was therefore about two thousand years older than Columbus and when the Italian hero is made immortal by ecclesiastical sanctification, our Phoe nician, of the Alexandrian age, will claim a like award at the hands of the priesthood. Then there was a jolly seaman from Iceland, who came to "Boston" mere than a thousand years ago, and even in the valley of the Ohio there are caves adorned within by Pba nician inscriptions, and Daniel Boone is said to have found Egyptian mum mies in a Kentucky cavern. Roman coins were found, years ago, when Mid die Tennessee was first settled by whites, somewhere near Shelbyville; and, very recently, we are told of Phoenician in ecriptions on copper discovered in Georgia. Though Colnmbus be entitled to all possible honors that may be lav isbed on his name and memory, it is certainly doubtful whether ho was the first of bis race to visit this continent, and if the reports of explorers In Arizona and in Peru be believed, we may doubt whether this continent be not older as civilized man's abiding place, than Europe. This being true, the Columbus of the future is the Columbus of the re moter past, who discovered Europe from America, and not America from Europe. CA1TAIN GEOKGE W. GIFT. E sewhere we publish the resolutions of he Memphis gaslight company on the reception of the resignation of Cap tain George W. Gift, for some years secretary of that company. These we unreservedly indorse, as will every good citizen in the least acquainted with the gentleman, who, in every situation he has been called upon to fill, whether as officer in the navy, or in the civil walks of life, has most admirably illustrated what even General Eee would under' staud as the faithful performance of duty. Well educated, a close student, wit a command of language that is am ng his most enviable gifts, clear in comprehension, and concise in state meiit, a business man with ail the qual ificntions of tact, energy and skill, he has made his mark amongst us, and wili carry with him to the far Pacific, wb re hereafter he will make his home, the warmest wishes of a very wide circle, wb i have learned to know him inte rna sly and well, and knowing hirs adc. ire and respect him.

From an Occasional Correspondent. Pulaski, June 12. In a former letter I stated that in my opinion Tennessee paid leas taxes than any Stale in the Union Iu proportion to her agricultural productions. I showed that the rate of taxation was lower here than In Ken tucky, which has no State debt, and far lower than iu moat of the States, in cluding not only tho southern but also the northern States. This was done to show persons at a distance, who might be misled, cither by ignorant or de signing men making statements to the prejudice' or Tennessee, that great In justice had been done to our State by misstatements oN her condition. The wholeamount of taxes collected in Ten nessee tor State purposes is only one-forty-fourth of the value of her agricul tural products. It is .known that only a portion of these taxes comes from the producers of farm articles, so that the amount of taxes upon the farmers is scarcely one-eightieth of the value of their farm products. The following ta ble is most significant, and shows the relative amount of taxes in each State compared with the value of farm pro ducts, is worthy of careful study by all who feel an Interest in the State.

Be it remembered a large portion of the taxes of Tennessee are not drawn from the raisers of farm products, and therefore it appears that the burdensare much lighter in Tennes see upon farmers than in any other State. In Kentucky, North Carolina, and some other Sta'es, the revenue is derived alone from a tax on real and personal property. In our State a con siderable portion of the revenue is de rived from taxes on privileges, and other things, besides real and persoual prop erty, thus showing that in Tennessee the tax on real and persoual property, and particularly on farm land, is less than in any other State in proportion to the value ot farm proddctions. Immigration from our Stale is caused by the false impressions which are made as to the amount of our taxes as com pared with other States. The petty pol iticians who are attempting to make a little cheap local popularity, are doing Tennessee great harm abroad. Their capacity to do evil 1s much greater than either their capacity or inclination to do good. California, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas, the very States to which our people emigrate, are much more heavily taxed than Tennessee. To subserve political ends, great and per manent injury is done our State by a class of small politicians, who having no merits, are forced to pander to what they believe to be popular prejudice. It may be said that notwithstanding our State taxes are so much lighter in proportion to her agricultural produc tions than in any other State, the people are not prosperous. If this be so, it must be owing to other causes, such as the want of diversified indu9tries,tho ab sence of factories to furnish U3 with goods mado at home, and also with markets for our agricultural produc tion: the want of furnaces to work up the millions of tons of ore in our hills and mountains. The fact that we have so much unavailable property, made so by the want of labor and by a defective system of agriculture, is the main source of our derresed ren dition. We need more land-owners who will bo cultivators of the soil, more la borers of every description, and more capital to furnish the means of labor, and all of these repudiation will drive from us. It is an easy matter to make complaints, but not so easy to show that these complaints are well-founded. Pol iticians who want ofllce can easily pan der to what they believe to be popular prejudices, but enlightened statesmau fchip is far above resorting to the tricks of the low demagogue. The best way to reduce our taxes is to increase our wealth, which never can be done if we commence a system of repu diation. In every instance in which it has been tried, repudiation has been proved to be a most costly expeilment, intlicting far more damage than the amount repuuiateu. YOKOHAMA.

This Dlan was changed, and news reached Yokohama on tne twenty-third or May that the ex pedition band had landed at Formosa, with no opposition. There is adeclded ly improved tone in the demeanor of tne Japanese government toward all classes of foreigners. Eighteen Japan ese were wrecked on the coast of Corea, and were beheaded because they were Japanese. The Coreana are building forts and drilling troops for defense against Japan. The railroad between Corea and Osaki was opened on the eleventh of May. There Is much excitement at Yeddo by an alleged attack ou the house of the British legation. It has transpired that the police were pursuing an individual connected with the legation, who was supposed to be guilty of some offense against the Japanese lauriot.

The mob also at tacked otlier houses in thesame quarter, and injured several persons. The French police, with the assistance of the Eng lish police finally quelled the riot. About five hundred Chinese were engaged in the riot, The disturbance had its origin in the fact that the French authori ties were building a road near the joss house.
