THE MBHPIS DA-IXT AJPPIb'A.L, - SATURDAY. JUNE 12. 1875
MEMPHIS APPEAL SA.TUKHAV, J USE It!, 1872. agent of oik baa Hue in freights. ntoa acnuiis io .iufui.h.2V3 Our i old era need not be reminded of the fact tnat for the past ten years we have advocated persistently the consol idation of the lints of railway between .Memphis and Norfolk. At first we had thought the grand scheme which would give to our goodly city the needed out let to the tea, and bring us closer to our sister cities in the east, was one that could be most easily and readily accom plished. We found, however, upon in vestigation, that difllcultiea grave, se rlous and apparently insurmountable stood in the pathway to its successful issue. Laborious efforts have been con Unuously made by those having the matter in charge, and we are now grati fied to know and say that a more thor ough unification of interests aud man agement has been brought about, and that for all practical purposes we have the good eilects of consolidation. The utmcst good feeling exists between the officers of the respective links in the great railway line between Memphis and Norfolk. Tiie geueral freight agent of the line from Memphis to Bristol con trols all eastward freights, while the the line from Bristol to Nor- full authority to act for the the matter of westward The schedules of, trains have been rearranged and the speed in creased. Time-freight Is taken, aud the telegraph is freely used to insure relays of locomotives and train men at proper intervals, and thus the line can load a steamship at Norfolk within a given time. At Norfolk the arrangements for direct steam to Liverpool, Bremen and Havre are being rapidly perfected, while the steamers to New York and Boston are the fastest aud finest in the world. Extensive preparations are being made in anticipation of a large crop this year, and already the gladsome picture of Eu ropean gold coming to us in ten-fold quantity over preceding years is more than half a realization by means of our improved freighting facilities. We fur ther liud that the recent Improvements on thisjline are not alone as to freights, but extend as well to passengers, Coaches now run through from Mem phis to Bristol, and it is expected soon that trains will run through to Norfolk, and drawing-room and sleeping-cars through between Memphis and Balti more. Our own Memphis and Charles ton road, in whose prosperity the people of Memphis are so much interested, is no longer a mere local road, relying alone upon its own strength to enforce the respect due to it, but is a part of a strong and powerful lino which is capable of enforcing its rights to carry freight and passengers at reasonable rates, untrammeled by rings and mo nopolies. We congratulate our people of Memphis upon this improvement in their favorite road, and especially do we congratulate the stockholders of the Memphis and Charleston road upon having secured a management which so fully comprehends the situation, and which has to untiringly worked for this consummation, which has fully verified, let us modestly say, the wisdom of the Appeal's suggestions. constituted two-tbirds of all the quali ii?d voters of the county making tho subscription. This ruling of the supreme court rendered the subscriptions of War ren and Issaquena counties to the Mem phis and Vicksburg railrcad null and void, aud put an end to all efforts to push the enterprise. The contractors failed to comply with that condition of the con tract by which the road was to be com pleted from the Yazoo river to Rolling Fork within six months, and the board of directors, as we learn from tho Vicks burg Herald, have canceled the contract and placed themselves in treaty with Mr. Walsh, of New York, with positive assurances from him that he will take the contract to build and complete the road at an early date if the county and city subscriptions can be obtained to any reasonable extent to aid in the construe, tion of the road. Mr. Walsh also says he can briug ten thousand immigrants to Mississippi if the State will pay the cost of transportation from the city o New York; aud as he is a gentleman of large means aud enterprise, we have no doubt lie can do so. AS OLD DKU.1I. Cntnrel Dnrlntr Ihe.Wnrlfrom Ilie Con federate Army by a rodfrnl Hcont loc 1'nrly. Every one who loves Tennessee aud desires hei prosperity, and would labor for her welfare, will indorse the Kuox vllle Chronicle when, treating of the centennial exhibition, it says that every county in the State should organize on or against the first Monday in July next, at their county courts. The build ings of the exhibitions will bo closed to the reception of articles on the first day of April next. Many will say to themselves, we have nine months for preparation and that is time enough without being in a hurry about it. Let U3 say to all such, you have no time to spare. If you wish to make a credita ble and reputable exhibition at Phila delphia you must go to work at once, and work diligently ti the end, or yon may make a disgraceful failure and bit terly lament after the time has passed that you had not been more earnest In the work and used more diligence, in dustry aud energy in its prosecution. Let no man theu who has an interest in the welfare and reputation of his coun try lag behind, but come up boldly to the discharge of his duty and help with his counsel, cc!v:u3 and means iu this great and glon n work. A letter elsewheie giving the opin ion of Montgomery Blair on political matters will attract the attentiou of our readers. Of courae, what he says about Mr. Garrett, of Baltimore, will be taken for what it is worth. While not opposed to that gentleman, the Appeal has al ready indicated to its readers its prefer ence for some one of the many states men who have labored for the party in season and out, and who have borno without: murmur the heat and burden of the day. We want, and hope we shall have, nu available candidate, whose name will prove a talisman of success, a man whoso work will speak for him, and whose position in the party will in sure him a unanimous and enthusiastic support. We want, not a good railroad man, out a great statesman, one of ex perience and ability, who has the quali ties of a President such as the country n;eds to give assurance of continued growth aud prosperity to all parts of the Union. N'aslivillo I'ni'in and American.) Cassopolis, Mich., June 4. I eend you my payer containing an account of a drum captured In Tennessee. Please publish, aud if you obtain any further Information in regard to its history, send me a copy of your,paper containing It. Yours truly. c. c. allison. Publisher NationnlDemociat.CafsopollK.Mich. We publish below the account referred to, and trust that the party interest ed will communicate with us upon the subject: A VENERABLE RELIC. Cassopolls National Demosrat, June 3d. Vaxdama, Mich., June 1, 1S73. To O.U. Turner: Sir Acconliug to promise, I will give you the history of my drum. It was captured by a iquad of the Elev enth Michigan regiment while out foraging on the Nashville pike road, about seven miles from Nashville, Ten nesee, In the year 1862. Ibaloneed tothe regimental band at the time, and when I was musterd out of servicn I traded my band drum forit. It unfortunately got split while in my possession, so I had about ten inches of it cut off, as you can see by looking at the coat of arms. By looking in one of the air-holes, you can see the man's name who made it, "Richard Bicknell, Dundee, March 23, 1640." I will tend it to you the Jirat chance I get; you will please lake care of it. I will be over there at your annual meeting if possible. Yours, re spectfully, a. s. RUSSEY. The foregoing letter explains itself, and reveals the fact that we have iu our midst a venerable relic of olden times one which may have played well Its part in the battles, sieges anu retreats along the Scottish borders, when Cromwell, with his "Ironsides," invaded them. Could the old drum speak our native tongue, as surely as its notes thrilled and moved the scldier heart to battle, what stories it could relate. It might tell of an Eng lish victory at "Marston Moor" of the defeat of the Covenanters at Dunbar and Worcester of the headlong and impetuous charges of Cromwell and his iron men as they blotted out all opposi tion in Scotland to Eogland and her laws. And it may be that this old drum was brought over to this country by some adherent of "the Regicides" when they fled from England to save their heads. None of these speculations are improbable. That it is an old and valu able relic, none will dispute. Possibly some of the Tennessee papers may throw some light upon its history in this coun try at least.

Church in tiie Pursuant to the plan of extending its Influence in the south, the Roman Cath olic church has established its educa tional headquarters for that section in Baltimore. The church has always been strong in Maryland, the founders and early settlers of the State being of that faith.

The priests, nuns and sisters who are being brought from abroad to engage in the educational work report at Balti more, aud are there detailed to various parts of the south. As an evidence of the energy with which the church has entered on this work, it is stated that in addition to the Catholic schools already existing, new ones are to be immediate ly opened for colored youth as follows: Ten in Georgia, fifteen in Alabama; fif teen in Mississippi, and twenty-fivo in Louisiana. They will offer board and tuition freo to colored young men and women, and to the poor whites for one hundred dollars p9r.year. AGINCOURT 570 tons...Cant. Williamson BELGRAVIA. .1334 tons .. Cant.

The tax-payera of Wilaou county being of opinion that tha assets of the Tennessee and Pacific railroad have been wasted by its managers, have en trusted Sir. It. Cantrell, a prominent attorney of that county, to " examine "into the affairs of said company in be "half of the interest of Wilson countyi "anu to ascertain if the bonus were " properly issued, aud what disposition "was made of them; and whether or "not a proper aud legal disposition has " been made of the entire assets of the "roadsince its commencement; and if " our said agent deem it expedient, he " may employ one or more attorneys or "agents to assist him iu the examina " tion into the affairs of said company; "and if in tha opinion of our said agents "justice demands asuit to be brought,he " is hereby authorized aud directed to " bring &ult or take such other steps "as he may deem advisable andexpe- " dient to protect the interests of Wil " son county in said road." Iu addition to this a committee of attorneys have been appointed to inquire if the county is obligated to pay interest on the bonds, and whether the county is compelled in law ana honor, through its proper agents, to provide for the payment of tha bonds and interest at maturity. The Union and American, commenting ou this action of the county court of Wil son, says: "Theaffiiraof the Tennes see ana Pacific would certainly appear to be in a bad way at present. Next August the balance one hundred and fifty thousand dollars of the purchase money due the State has to be paid, and Governor Porter intimates, we under stand, that he will promptly foreclose the mortgage unless the amount named be forthcoming." The Jackson Clarion Bays that one "Whitewash," a correspondent, we pre sume, of that paper, puts an ugly face on the Alcorn university matter. "He wants to know what has become cf the seventeen thousand dollars of the fund that has disappeared since the legisla ture met, and also shows that the late treasurer, so far from having paid over the balance as required by law, has de posited it iu bank subject to his own check. Meantime, the will of the legis lature is openly defied ; and not a voice is raised by the authorized authorities of the State, to vindicate the majesty of i the law." Of course not. Ames is still governor. But then, what is "Whitewash" going to do about it? The Bniiis ol an Ancient City in lien tacky.

Many years ago a faint trace of a similar city was noticed in Montgomery county, near Mount Sterling, but the owners of the land having little taste for backward researches, almost or en tirely obliterated the evidences to make room for corn-growing. This being a fresh discovery, we have no doubt it will be visited by Professor Shaler and the arcbieologists and prehistorians of the country at large.

Washburne, who will be re membered as a former commandant at Memphis during the war. The general says: 1 have this moment read, with great satisfaction, your address delivered on the occasion of tho decoration of Con federate soldiers' graves. They were worus ntiy epoKen. 1 ball it as a good omen for the future of the country when x cee inose, once enemies, meet on sa cred ground,"and kiss again with tears." This looks like genuine reconciliation. Prom the moment the war ended, I have always leu mat we of the north could hardly go too far In our attempts to re store Binuiy reeling anu good fellowship. xi is especially weasmg to me to see federal and Confederate soldiers join ing hands and scattering their floral of ferings upon the graves of those who fen m the great struggle, because I be lieve it to be a long stride in the right direction.and because it was here, where lie buried several hundred Confederate dead, that our veteran soldiers inaugu rated in 1S72 tho custom of decorating tne graves oi tneir late enemies. This extract of a letter not intended for publication will be read with all the more pleasure on that account, and as Indicating the strength of the convic tions in favor of peace that has seized the public mind of the north as well as the south. We hail these words of Gen eral Washburne as a proper and becom ing supplement of all those of a similar character wiich have emanated from other equally prominent citizens of both sections,. and feel assured they will go far to strengthen the bonds of peace be- ween the States. I he supreme court of Mississippi Borne time ago decided, in the Carroll county case, that it required two-thirds oi the qualified voters of a county to vote in favor of tho subscription, and that two-thirds of those voting at the election was not sullicient, unless they : Shrewd frontiersmen, who lmv hpn here watching the Black Hills negotia tions, predict that the Sioux, the troops and the gold pioneers are likely to soon exchange ehots. If nlain talk will pt. cite Indian wrath, the Sioux have heard enough of it. The last talk of the com missioner of Indian affairs with thn cniefs was very blunt and forcible. Commissioner Smith told them that if the present expedition, under thn mil. dance of General Custer, should nrov successful in their search for Drecious minerals, inev wouiu be forced tn rivn up their title to the Black Hills, and that now was the time for them to secure good and favorable terms from the gov ernment.
