"HE V.BJx. .eilS DAILY APPEAL-FRIDAY, MAY 7. -"75.
ftfiSPMS AI'PE MAY 7, 1876. FRIDAY : The Mobile Eegiticr is of the opinion tiint if American ins-titutiotiH shall come out proof against Grantiam, Oeeariam, Radicalism and RoberiBm, we think they can safely eUnd the "Catholic faith," especially when the professors of the latter have done so much to help kill oir the former. Hamper's Weekly declare that unless Grant makes a declaration agaiiihl third termism, and make it quickly, too, the Republican party will hold him responsible for creating a echism in its ranks that will render the success of an opposition candidate al most certain, and even goes bo far as to awert, with refreshing candor, that such a defeat of the Republican party would be better than success with Grant aa President for a third term. This looks very much like rank treason to the party- A call for a meeting of all citizens of Memphis who desire to participate in observing the centennial anniversary of the declaration of independence by North Carolina, appears in another col umn, and we hope will be responded to by not only the North Carolinians in . the city, but by Memphiaus of all the States and nationalities. We should have a thoroughly patriotic meeting, and one that should convince the world that we at least have no doubts of the precedence of North Carolina in the great historic movement. A letter from a former resident of Memphis, writing from Chicago in re gard to the proposed reunion of the "blue and the grey" in Chicago, will be found full of interest to all ex-Confederate and Federal soldiers, the former eepeciallj. We urge upon the leading ex-oflicers of the Confederate armies at tendance upon this reunion, believing they are sure of a cordial reception, and that their presence there will go far to enforce the sentiments of fraternal good will, which, happily for the country, are growing every day. The "boys in blue" f.end the "boyB in grey" a hearty invitation, which we hope they will not fail to respond to. We are hostile to Eaton, and detest him because he knows nothing but the old State sovereignty blather. That has bneu the affection of his life. He blew ofl' his old foolishness about the sacred sovereignty of the States the first chance he, got, in the senate. Ho twaddled about the national flag of Rhode Island before ehe ratified the con stitution. If he is right the war is the most woful blunder ever committed. Cincinnati Commercial. The war was a woful blunder. Like other wars,;it will be found in a few years that it resulted in making the vanquished the victors. State rights is the corner stone of our system and the Commercial will yet have to acknow ledge it. The spelling bee for the benefit of the orphans of the Church Home, to come off at the theater next Monday night, promises to be an occasion of great interest, which will, we hope, culminate in large profits for the chil dren who are literally living from hand to mouth, and are dependent upon the every-day exertions of Mrs. Pickett and her coadjutors. We make an especial appeal in behalf of the little ones whose claims should be first in the hearts of the benevolent to be satisfied before nil things eke. The occasion re- ferred to offers abundant opportunity for mirth, combining in an eminent way pleasure with duty. The leaders of the Republican party will meet in Washington in a week or two, it is currently reported, for the pur pose of waiting upon President Grant in a body, and insisting on his signing a letter renouncing all idea of a thhd term. Senator Frellnghuysen and Mr. Carpenter are prominent in this affair, but their associates are sufficiently numerous and influential to make as strong an Impression upon Grant's mind as it Is capable of receiving. They are convinced that it is the third term which has ruined the Republican party, and that a complete and irrevocable aban donment of it is the only way of salva tion for them. It will be interesting to eee how they come out. The New York Sun, whose editor came within an ace of falling a victim to the centralising tendencies of the Re publican party, through a United States district court, refutes the doctrine ad vanced by Murat Halstead, who is a centralizer of the first water, and insists that "the truth of State rights lies at "the foundation of the American sys "tem of government, and without it the "United States could not long be the "free republic which the fathers meant "to establish, and which the sons love "so well. Instead of being the defeme "of rfavery as of old, State rights be "comes the indispensable shield and "bulwark of freedom; and accordingly "this contemned and rejected doctrine "is nowdestined to a deep and a perma "nent revival. The reaction in its fa "vor is already strong, and is sure to "become stronger; and no intelligent, "candid man can peruse the speech of "Senator Eaton without perceiving that "it contains political wisdom of a vital "nature, expressed with discretion and "patriotism, and with the true spirit of "liberty." And thus it is that thestrug glee of the south for communal inde pendence are already being justified out mt the mouths and by the pens of our former enemies. Our principles, will yet triumph in every State. The sol diers of the south have not died in vain. The sovereign States that attempted to leave us were bayoneted into their places. They are nailed to the nation like eoonekins on a barn-door. Any others ihat try the experiment of sovereignty will be spiked to the wall in the same yray. Cincinnati Commercial. This is a specimen of vigorous writing, but it is as far lrom the truth as it is violent, virulent and implacable. HaJ stead is and has always been a bitter enemy of the south, and until he took up with the Independents, having fallen out with Grant because he would not give him a foreign mission or some other equally high office, he labored as hard to crush the late Confederate States, and to make their people feel that they were "nailed to the nation like coonskins to a barn-door" as any public man in the west. Hal stead is seized with an insatiable ambition to be a leader, and one of the founders of a party. So far, at that work, he is a failure. He has no con victions, but he has prejudices and am bitions, and these combined make him j unscrupulous in his actions and unblush ing in his assertions. Just now he has the independent fever "bad," and can be relied upon by his independent fel low laborers for any amount of sneer and taunt at the houUi he hates. But nntu-ltlihtandinz his assaults upon the eouth, upon her dead soldiers and living statesmen, upon her people and upon her history, Halstead may live to wit ness the triumph of the States' rights for which she tough so long, anil in the maintenance of which she won au en during and honorable fame. The New York Herald says f the coming speeches by the counsel for and against Reecher, that "there is no uoudi that Mr. Evarts will make a long ad dress, exceeding, probably, his effort on the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. That display took up the best part of three days, and yet it was not nearly so effective as the three hours speech that Groesbeck, In the white heat of thought, rattled off, actually drawing tears from the eyes of such unimaginative men as Roscoe Conkllng and Cattell, of New Jersey. The speech Beach meditates delivering will be of the Groesbeck quality, brief, condensed and eloquently sententious. H Johnson's fate hung upon the speeches of his counsel, Groes beck would get the credit of having saved him. Evarta's speech was more ornate, diffuse, and, from the character of its composition, might be termed classicaljbut it appeared to have no more effect upon the jury, which the senate of the United States then represented, than a splendid recitation. It was very different with the address made by Groesbeck, which was only of a few hours duration. He took up only a few points in the career of Johnson, and these he turned over and presented in such a light that people of very ordina ry comprehension mighV appreciate them. STATE LAWS.
