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

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,

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.

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.

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. In the city and county of Balti
more there are twenty-eight churches,
besides three monasteries, several con
vents and other religious establishments.
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.

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?

similar city was noticed in Montgomery

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

We are permitted by Major J. O.
Pierce to quote the following extract
from a private letter to him from Gen
eral U. U. 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.
