"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.

Fit any one in any style oi" Shirt.
The difficulty hitherto attending the making
of Shirts In this or any Southern city, has
been the lack of skilled bands to do the
artistic part of the work, viz., the Cutting
and Fitting. I have, after some trouble
overcome this difficulty by securing the ser
vices of Mr. Kellam, who was bred to the
business, and now 'ask a trial by all who
want Shirts, with the assurance that tfiey
