!! THE' MEMPHIS DAILY J&ffiJLTF&Wli"&.S7 "JtTIiY SO", 187. ! i IE3IPI1IS APPEAL TUESDAY 3I0nX0, JOLT 20, 1874. WHAT KAOICAI. KB JIKAXS. U Uio white tax-paying people of Shelby county would learn what Radi cal rule means, we would refer them to South Carolina. At the close of the war the State debt was small, and the people Trereiiotburdened'wi1i onerous taxa tion. But the Radicals took charge o the State and county governments, and the result is Imikruptcy and ruin. Every species or property Is confiscated for taxes. From the very hour the car petbaggerst;w'ent -inlo offlce, the era of princelyjobbery and colossal corruption was inaugurated. -The most shameless jobs and swindles were concocted. The imported rascals stole as long aa there was .Anything to steal. The B-dical governor of the State even forged ray certificates to the amount of more than three-quarters of a million of dollars. He is now indicted for grand larceny. But he is still governor of the State, and the ignorant negro s upon whose shoulders ho and his basejfollowers climbed to power, instead ofdeserting him, are clamorous for his renommatibn, and the prospect is, this indicted thief will be renominated and re-elected. To show what Radical rule means in South Carolina, and what it would mean in Shelby county, we give the following startling figures, which we find in the Charleston JOnct and Courier. The table below gives the number of acres sold for taxes or con fiscated to the State: 1S73. 1S71. Acres. Acres. Abbeville. Alten 780 575 8,270 J78 . 0)015' 29,989 I 410 san-Bburg. --pier. 157, 166 56, 710 WHHamsbnrg . 1UII To4l. In only twenty-two counties 5S0,134 acres of land,equal in area to OGOequare miles, have been sold or confiscated by the State this year. For the two years, 1S78 and 1S74, as far as reported, the sales aud forfeitures amount to 813,657 acres, or 1326 square-miles. In the county of Charleston alone the sale and forfeiture amount, this year, to 260,000 aere?, or 400 square-miles. The entire amount of land In the State assessed for taxation In 1ST3 is shown in the report of the comptroller-general to be as fol lows:.' arable and plough lands, 2,737,3S5 aerfe; meadow and pastuj, 2,2S5,0S7 aeree; wood, uncultivated and marsh, 11.S10.163 acres; total, 16,822,635 acres. In two years the nles andJbrfeitures for -oa-paynieut of taxes Savfe amounted to 848,657 acres; that Unc'are 'in1 every HMtfeen acre cfiand t&,fa"nrJ in the .Ukwchas been confiscated under the guise of taxation. The maiden, in the classical legend, chained to a reek by the seaside, and looking despairingly for the approach of the monster to whose devouring throat Ehe has been devoted, is but an. imperfect type of the condition of South Carolina. Hie doomed maiden was exposed to danger appalling, indeed, but not whol ly inevitable; for in dae time a divine hero accomplished her deliverance, and restored her to happiness and honor. Had there been breathed upon her man acles some demon-spell, which riveted her chains forever, so that neither ap pealing prayer, nor votive offering, nor I heroic daring, might reverse the mut tered oharm; but that she should sit, through rolling years, the victim and paramour of an abhorred monster than, alas! she would have truly typi fied the cruel fate of poor doomed South Carolina. In the agony of despair the people appealed to congress and the P-esident, but Grant spurned and insulted the poor, helpless defenseless victims at his feet, because, forsooth, somebody in the convention which appointed this -committee had dared to doubt his infallibility! Since then 'the people, robbed and oppressed, have silently awaited the approach of the devouring monster, Radicalism. Barrow has made them humble. Man! fW indignities have quenched the old fire. Radical office-holders are the same everywhere. What has occurred in South Carolina will be repeated InShelby county, should the white people on the s-rth day of August next, by their leth arey and absence from the polls, permit the election of the negro Jtadical ticket Oar county jail, erected while the Radi cals were Inpower, at acost of nearly half amlflien cf dpUars, is standing mon- .ument of the corruptions that would be inaugurated should the sameparty-se-cure "power in the approaching election. The above figures proclaim, in no uncer tain language, what Radical rule means In South Carolina. The people of Ten nessee and Shelby county have learned to their sarrow what Radical rule means in uiis btate, and If they would avert I tms impending ruin, they will lock i .l?Alfi w! Ih tf 1 . I sMeWa, and in a eolld and impregnable phalanx-march to the poll on the sixth dayof August and drive away the ob neene birds now hoarsely croaking for ofllee, far plunder, and for an oppor tunity to squander the people's funds, paW not;by themselves nor their gang, but by the white teople, who they seem t think are fit for nothing but to pay tx for Radicals to steal. "RBAUMt" writes us requesting space in next Sunday's Appeal to answer "A Priest of 8U Mary's." We cannot rewist MsapiMsai to heard, and therefore yWd, with this understanding that no mw quortious ,lre to be introduced. And we hope that will be the last of a pKfiUess and useless difccuwion. aiie fBenies of "Hone-t Inquirer" have mn lost sight of, and in their stead we nave iiau new issues wholly foreign. wuan;cuueui-8 lntenuon. He did not desire to exclto a theological discus sion, and only asked questions suggest ed by the answer of the Pope to the address of the American pilgrims. There is no form of argument which people now-a-days so heartily avoid as that upon theology or church government, and nothing of which they are so im patient as the obtrusion of religion or religious teachers In their secular or governmental affairs. The spirit and tendency of the age is to liberty and liberalism and the separation of church and State, of theBUfllcIency and beneflto IR.tHI AnAlmnr, 1,(M2 Barnwell is ss.167 IWanfort . , , , 29J9H0 Sl),090 n.irlrf.n ,,,,,,, 95,60! 2WMXJ0 C1-renden .' l,o 17,196 yh.r- .

Therefore we do not care to burden our columns oraflllctour readers with a mere rehash of the dissensions and dif ferences which divide christians into so many sects and parties, and which to each and all are irreconcilable, upon which in fact they have tacitly agreed to disagree. Wo will give "Reader" the same space as "A Priest of St. Mary's" had last Sunday, and we hope he and all others will be satisfied that, In allowing the discussion to take so wide a range, we did so without any power to help ourselves after the inser tion of "Honest Inquirer's" very sim ple and honest letter, which, let us say, remains unanswered yet. MEMPHIS AND THE TRADE A! TltAYE- OF TOE WEST. The railway distance from Memphis to Jefferson, Texas, would Le lessened forty-one miles by the construction of a direct road through Camden. It costs forty-flro cents per bushel to ship corn from St Louis to Arkadelphla, and fifty-five cents to Camden. If the road from Memphis were built to Camden these freight charges would be lessened more than one-half. Steamers from Ft. Louis, even supposing these farmers' supplies for Arkansas were still bought in that city, would transfer them to Memph.sby water at nominal cost, and from emphis to Camden the distance would be ly two hundred and forty miles, vr"! ile from St, Louis the railway distance is four hundred jand forty miles, People along the route of the Cairo and Fulton road are as anxious as those about Camden to have the competing Memphis road built Our correspond' ent, who was at 'Arkadelphia a few days ago, on the line of Allen's road, writes that the county of which Arkadelphla Is the capital will invest certainly one hundred thousand dollars in tlin Memphis, Sevall'8 Bluir, Camden and Jefferson road. Memphis merchants should know that while Allen's road penetrates some of the poorest counties of Arkansas, the proposed Devali's Bluff and Camden line will penetrate the richest lands of the State. Each mile of this road will add one thousand bales to the number annually sold in Memphis. Moreover, the shortest possible route from New York to Jefferson and Shreveport even now lies through Memphis, Chattanoo ga, Bristol and Washington City. Tas sengers cross the Mississippi without knowing that it exists, and the people of Arkansas and Texas are just beginning to leam that they can get to heaven -without crossing the big bridge designed to dam np the Mississippi, and prevent cheap access to the sea. Everywhere west of Little Rock energetic merchants of St Louis circulate St Louis newspa pers and St. Louis bridge maps, and though the Appeal reaches Texarkana the day of it? publication, and St Louis papers a day later, Mem phis merchants take no advantage of the fact, and these western people, save thoeeiSthat read the Appeal, do not know that Memphis is the best cotton market in the United States, or that Memphis merchants will duplicate any bill filled ii a fit Louis grocery or dry goods establishment Why should Memphis surrender the trade of a coun try to St Louis which is forced to sell cotton in Memphis, and from which farmers' supplies may be forwarded over the Memphis and Little Rock road at half the freight charges imposed by Allen's St Louis lines. The following tabulated statement of the indebtedness of the various leading cities of the Union showing their public debt, population (per United States census of 1870) and debt per capita, will he found useful, by local financiers and pcliticians,and instructive to ail our people: capia. r.ffi&?.rTZZ 4$W 51,0!K SH1 S',271 2S,I(H 3!0,Nil 78,412 2W7 JS.181 W4,U 175M JSO.OKJ 71,4 100,733 117,714 41AM 292,4J 31.WI 7S.S77 191,32. 2,77I,N 1.070JM) mjooofM) 1&MH,M2 1,700,400 16, 121,7. 1.4MU30 ftsjsi.m i:,'XMvW9 l,707,ta)0 3,1!,5 l,Slif, x,M0 27,71,i70 ,r7jM !suno V01.40) Vj,i Albanr.

The barbecue at Barllett to-lay will be an old-fashioned, old-time gathering of the people, something tho like of which we have not had in Shelby county incelS61, when the questions which led to separation were under discussion. Any such enthusiastic meeting as this will be we have not had hire in years. It is expected that Governor John C. Brown will be present, and that the following-named gentlemen will be among the speakers: Hosea Towneend, chairman of the executive committee: T.W.Brown, Tom Avery, W.H. Ste- pnens, u. J Wright, A. J. ttouah,l T. Cass, M. J. Wright, It. F. Looney, Jno. w. uarmacK and J. W. Eldridce. The candidates, itis expected, will also speak, and, like those above named, confine themselves strictly and rigidly to the questions of the hour, to the exclusion of btate or national affairs. A telegram from Little Rock asserts that Governor Baxter is reported to be very angry at the action of the conven tion In announcing that all the officers, from the lowest to the highest, shall be elected, as his Democratic friends had been promised that his term of office should be scheduled over by a constitu tional provision. Persons who have conversed with him say ho threatens to disperse the convention with the militia if it interferes with his term of office. The Democrats held a caucus Fridav III I'll t to RBAprlnln 1 ' c ...... uv niaujr- juieuiutlB of the convention could be reXIed upon to disband the militia, and thug prevent Baxter from interfering with them. If this statement be true, it proves Baxter to be unworthy the support of his peo ple. We confidently look for a contra diction of it. Thk London Ittegraph, of the fourth instant, announces that arrangements have been made between the proprietors of that paper and Mr. James Gordon Bennett, proprietor of tho Niiw York Herald, under which an expedition will at once be dispatched to Africa with the object of Investigating and reporting upon the haunts of the slave-traders j of pursuing to fulfillment the magnificent discoveries of the great explorer, Dr. Livingstone, and of completing, if pos sible, the remaining problems of Cen tral African geography. This expedi tion has been undertaken by and will bo under the sole command of Mr. Henry M. Stanley, who made so success- Rochester- .

What an vote'd ful a Journey "in search of Livingstone," upon the suggestion and at the .charge of the proprietor of the New York Herald. Success to it. A circular to the voters of the tenth chancery district, composed of the coun ties of Madison, Hardeman, Haywood, Lauderdale, Tipton and Fayette, and signed by all the.Jawyers of those coun ties, urges the re-election pf Chancellor Henry J. Livingstone, of whom they say that he i3 patient and untiring in his labors upon the bench, and in theinves tigation of cases arising before him; he possesses unbounded energy, and an ex ecutive ability and management which insures dispatch of business; so much so, indeed, that hut few causes are now upon uie aocKets or his courts of Jong stand' ing. We hope, in deference to the gen tlemen of the bar, who are certainly the best judges of Chancellor Livingstone's fitness for his position, the voters ofthe tenth district wlU'. f Select him. HeJs certainly the man for the place. It is very painful, but It .is a fact, Jersey City has furnished the latest cler ical scandal. His name and style is Rev. John S.Glendenny, and he is pas tor of a Presbyterian church on Prospect avenue, Jersey City Hights. His victim, whom he seduced under promise of mar riage, is Miss Mary E. Pomeroy, a mu- sic-teacher and organist of his church. It is a plain case, and the rev erend scamp will have to "go west," as Kallocli did. There's no help for it now, We are glad to know and to be able to state that the chamber of commerce is perfecting arrangements for the pro per reception of the delegates from Galveston and Shreveport, of whose arrival we shall learn to-day, so s to advise our readers to-morrow. Our merchants are alive to the importance of the visit of these delegations and will put their best foot foremost on the occa' siou of their visit. The Cincinnati Commercial says it is held to be a high compliment that Pius IX should have said to the American pilgrims that "America to-day is the only country in which he is really pope in the eyes of the government" But supposing he should ask "recognition of our government as a temporal prince, how then?
