N-ishvillo I Dion and American.; Oa the Fourth of July, 1SJ5, thirty years ago to-day, the corner-stone of the i -ii-Aa! XYrjiiessco was laid. Iu the fi s of the loaal press of that day we 11 id the ceremonies more graphicslly t esc! ioed than completely reported. One .' the oest accounts is that of the old r. ishvdle Whig, of July 8, 1S45, writ t -1 by our present ciiy treasurer and fel.ow-ci dzen, Anson Nelson. Many of tnose who ligured most prominently iu toe demonstration still live to take a part iu the leading public affairs of the nre--e!it altered times. Hon Edwin H. liwii g, fir distance, was the orator of iiio day, and John M. Bass and Samuel iJ. Morgan, building commissioners. Bat there still live bumueds of people who were present in th obscure capaci ty of spectators. Our p.e.'eut governor wa oe of it host of schoolboys who proudly joined in the procession at the start, but whose patriotic enthusiasm was consumed under the burning rays of the euu before the ceremonies were over. The arioii3 associations in the city took from early morn till eleven o'clock t ct'ebrate the "gloiioua Fourth" in their usual maimer. At the latter hour these, with legions of tho uuuniformed and unbadged herd, collected on the puolic Mjuaio and marched in proces sion to Cmiitol hill, which they covered w.i h or,e dense mass of humanity. The ni'Msry compabies preeedtd, then the Btate otiicers, building commissioners, thearchitec- (Win. tJuickkmd) and the orator or the day; next the Masons, haaded by abau-d or muic, and display ing tbree hauarrp ir.t-cribcd "Beauty," Strength" ai.d "Wisdom," each staged on either tide by two girls rcbed in boowy wiit-; ntxt invited guests, distinguished citizjns, mayor and alder men mot of Edctityl), the professors and societies of the University of Nashville, and O J ct-Fellow. As ever, the rear was brt tight up by the noble firemen. Wust the IFWsrsaysof the extremity of the proceafclob is worth copyiug: "An engine and ho?c-earriage formed not the least attractive patt of the spectacle. These were drawn each by four horses, splendidly caparisoned, each horse led by a sou of AiricH, habited in an Asiatic costume, and four boys, superbly habited in Oriental style also, rode the hordes harut-td lo tne hote-carrlage. Theear riago aud eugi'ie were tastefully deco rated with wreaths and otbtr appliances of pomp, a-jd, by their picturesque ap pearas ce, c utribuleJ gieatly to the gen eral effect." The duty of laying the corner-stone was assigned to the M&sons. Bev. Mr. Wheat, chaplain of the grand ledge, of frrod prayer before Mr. Ewing's address. This sptech was published and com meuded with unusual encomiums at the time. The regular Masonic ceremonies for such an occasion were then carried out, the usual amount of miscellaneous plun der being put out of the sight of man for ever, by disappearing in the memorial recepta'cle of the stone. The building commissioners were Jno. M. Bats, cuirmau; Samuel D. Morgan, Morgan W. Brown, Jno. F. Eiliston, Allen A. Hall and Jaa. Woods. The then Mtate ottlcers who were pres ent and participated were James C. Jones, governor; John 8. Young, secre tary of state; Felix K. ZillicotTer, comp t'o'.ltr of the trei-ury ; Matthew Kelson, -treasurer; Wt H. Humphreys, nttor-ny-goneral; and Gerard Troost, stiite geologist. The writer, a reporter, who is not so much of ftti sntiuuaiian us one might suppose from this -ketch, had not then male hi3 tirrestrial debut, but he lias a fri -nd and an associate who had just beguu his mundane career, and who was j.re-ut at the dsiemouy above describ ed ard who thinks that his faculty of memory was brought Into action for the iirn time on that day. His rcminie reiice of tho d jy's jubilee is a most in-tir-stii g one. Ii. seems to him now, that it was one hundred years ago that he was oivi hill, where there was a pile f t cfcs av.d lots of cedars, and the w n If emincnc was crowned with pe o p, r.r wti e" igated calico, as that f a'-iie impiinted it image on his little fancy more permii:ntly thau aiiythiug t-l-t- H's ncolh-ctlon is the faintest m, i.'ul R'&ie imaginable, and he would sti.l be in iiiorHDce as to what event it n '.

Yesterday the corui r-stone of the new Episcopal church was laid on the site of tho old ore on Franklic street. Amid a large c .iicourse of citizens in thecpen air and aficr the sLadis of the eveniLg had 1 gtheneJ s.nd the cool bieezes begau M blow, the precession, preceded by the rtvi retd clergy, followed by the senior au.: junior warden and vestrymen of the cntiK-.li, came out of th" pa'sonag? (old Tr. nuy church having be ea pulled down to make way for the new church i, re citing with earnest and solemn intnna t ion t he simple tut grand aud i mr ressive i.tli of ihe church appropriate to the ot-cit-iou. Proceeding to the southesst corner, the clergy tootc position near the . rner-ston, which had been prepared and adju-ted in its position, with h hol low made in it to receive strch articles as miht be desired to be placed therein, and by means of which iuture ges might know the history of the edifice, tlie condition of our people at this date, as evidenced by the source of our re ligion, the Holy Bible, public journals aud periodicals, aud one of each of the coins of the Uriled State?, bearing the mint stamp of this year, etc , in a word, such articles as, if found by some sutiii'iary of a ceutury to come, would give proper facts upon which to base an estimate of our religion and civilization. Upon a platform erected near by were the choir of the church and an organ. The organ, flayed in a inost.admimble style by that accomplished musician and teacher, Prof.'Biymond, accompa nying the well-trained voices of the choir, filled tho air with solemn and sweet music. As the last notes of the fcred song died away, Kev. William Graham, of Christ church, Nashville, with the mallet of the worker in stoue in his hand, adjusted the first rock to bo placed iu the wall, repeating, in doing eo, that portion of the ritual appropriate to tbo act. Striking the rock tliree times, he eald: "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. I lay the corner-stone of an edifice to be here erected by the name of Trinity churrii, and to be de voted to the service of Almighty Gud, agreeable to the principles of th Prot estant Ep'.scnpel church in the Ouifed States ot America, in its doctrines, min istry, liturgy, rights and usg. Other foundations 'ran no man luv than that which is laid, even Jesus Const; who is God over all, bleeped for evermoie, and in whom we have redemption through His blo-td, iDd the forgiveness cf sins. Amen." After concluding thic" "oremouial, the large audience was clled to order by Hon. G. A. Henry, the senior warden, who introduced to them the orator of the day, Bev. Wm. Graham. From his first sentence he-sttracted and fixed the attention of his audience, aud though many had ao seats, we do not believe one single person present left the place or faileJ to listen toevery wcrJ tie utterel. He has just enough of the Scottish accent to interest, win and at tract evety ear, and when sc won, the mind was charmed, i-ditied and elevated with the eloquence, bearing and classical style of the speaker. But I will not undertake to give you even an outline of this most appropriate and admirable audress, as I hear a copy hus been requested and given to the ves try for publication in your valuable jour nal. This much I will say, however, that without distinction cf sects, the ad dress was regarded as the most eloquent and appropriate ever heard in this city, celebrated as it was for Its cultivation, Its taste and eloquent public speakers. From tho fact t!. at our parish is now without a rector, many thought it ar. ap propriate oc -asiou to call one to iili the position, aod some, in their enthusiasm, proposed to elect Rev. William Graham to the position by a unanimous vo'e taken on the spot, and require the efli cient and active vestry to ratify the same in a more formal and canonical mauner. The.writer heard many ask the orator personally if he would not come, and it required all tho dignity and sslf-posses-faion for which he i eo eminently distin- gulsueu tog-t a release from tneir press ing importunities. Sullice it to say, that the occasion was eminently interesting, and iu its way as complete a success as the church will be in grandeur, beauty and symmetry of architectural proportions when com pleted.

Lebanon was visited by a severe etoria of wind and rain Friday. The courthouse was par tially unroofed, tbo wind getting under tho tin roof and liftirg it as easily as if it had been paper. Tne Drifoos block was ngain a sullerer, being stripped of part of its rcof. This seems to be avery unfortunate block, us it is visited by every herd wind that blows. A great many fine shrsdo trees weie blown down in the various yards about town. Com was flattened, and wheat shocks blown dowH. Justice Baskette returned her8 Friday night from Midfijelon, Kuther ford county, the place of Im nativity. He says he had not been there before in twenty years, and that its surroundings had been no changed that he was only enabled hero and there to discern some old familiar landmark whioh had plainly began to ebow the effects of tho marcn of time. While passing from Middleton to Fostervile, Friday, he witnessed ouo of the severest rain storms he had ever had the misfortune to encounter. It was a regular water-spout. It seemed that the bottom had dropped out of the clouds. The water come down in great sluices, which, forming into a gteat body of water upon the land, swept down the hillsides with great velocity, washing away shocks of wheat, fences, and filling up the roads and bottoms in a remarkably short spaca of time. Much of the wheat and other crops were badly damaged. Ilnlfroail Accident. Meridian, Miss , July 3 On Mon day last as the western-bound freight train was Hearing Lake, by some unac countable freak, the caboofe car jumped the traek and ran overthe ties a distance of seventy-live yards or more until it reached a small bridge, when one of the rails was torn up and it struck the bot tom of the car, smashing things up iu a frightful way. In the car were Mrs. S nith, of Lowry's Mills, Mr. Thomas Watta of Newton, Conductor Wm. I'eate and Mr. Frank Hill, brakesman. All these occupants were thrown out just after the bridge was crossed, and before the train could be stopped, aud all, except Mrs. Hill, were seriously iu jore'd, though-jve learn no limb3 were broken. In consideration of the danger ous character of the accident, it seems almost miraculous that some one was not killed. ABKANSAS NEWS.

How will that aflkct the public welfare? The Pine Biyil' Press says of Jefferson county, "Here iu our alluvial bottom lands from five to seven hundred p.-unda of lint (or ginned) cotton to the acr-, and from fifty to Eeventy-five bushels of corn can be ga'hered each year, and now comes Colonel Ben F.

Last week JtihuHogan, negro, invad ed Mr. Russ Tucker's residence at Do ver, and attempted to violate the person cf his daughter, whose cries aroused the household. The neighbors pursued the I negro, who was caught. Tho Russell ville Democrat says of the result: I "Quickly and silently a rope was pro-1 cured, and after marching John to the ; woods a few buudred yards from town, i he was swung up, and after a few strug-1 gles the life of the reckless, desperate man was ended, rnus, in less tuan an hour, the devilish deed attempted by this most unfortunate wretch brought swift retribution upon his head, aud tho rising sun found tho town as quiet antl calm us though nothing had occurred, few of tha citizens being aware of what was going ou."

Sty'safeing at Court Square A Great Gathering of the Peonlo Picnics of tho Shenner chor and St. Peter'd Orphan Asylum. Scenes and Incidents on the Streets Bon Fires A Forty eight Hour Fen de Joie Liheral Display of Eunting Etc. Yesterday was intensely hot. It waa a scorcher. Yet the streets were, all day, filled with people, and the whole popu latiou surrendered itself to the spirit of tho "day we celebrate." Picnics were in order and every park and available place in the neighborhood of the city was tilled with holiday-clad crowds who seemed bent on making the most of the occasion. The old fair ground was the principal point of attraction on account of the white speakers who had consented to assist their colored fellow-citizens in celebrating the day, and tbo largest number of persons wera there congte gated. The colored people had otrier picnics, hue this was by long odd3 their beat display. The white people enjoyed ihemselvr-a in many ways, tho Germans at the Mionuerchor picnic. and the Iiish at the picnic of St. Peter's orphan asy lum. Court square at night was a great point of attraction with all classes, and the speechoo of the several orators wero well received. Firingjand the popping of crackers was continuous for forty-eight hours. There were quite a number of bonfires, a few places were illuminated, many Hags were displayed, and only one or two accidents marred the general loy. Wo may, therefore, vote the Fourth a success. At til 3 Old I'nlr GronndH. The Fourth of July was yesterday cele brated by the dilterent colored societies of thin city, the turnout being large and evidencing much interest. As early a eight o'clock in the morning the sound of the fife and drum indicated that the colored organizations were assembling at different points for the purpose of marching iu procession to their respect ive picnic grounds. In and around Court square the negroes congregrated in great numbers, for the central location of this beautiful park renders it a kind of rendezvous upon any public occasion when a demonstration like that of yes terday is to be made. Thither the negroes congregated, and among the crowd we noticed quite a number from the country. While no demonstration was made among the white citizens, in asmuch as the Fourth was the day pre vious, t et many were solicitous aud not a few were anxious to know what would become of the proposed psace-gathering of the whites and blacks' at the Fair grounds, to which place the Independ ent Order of Pole-Bearers had invited a number of prominent southern gentle men, whose previously announced ac ceptance (publiehed last week in the Appkal) had become generally kuown. There was no little anxiety as to tho probable result of this meeting aud conference, and it was quite nat ural that ita approach bad aroused some degree of interest, especially amor g the thoughtiul of our community. . irom the number of societies aud the display made by them, it was evident that the negroes intended making at least a great jollity yesterday, for men, women and children were Hocking about the streets in anticipation of the procession of the organizations. By eleven o'clock the different processions had formed, and. headed by bands qf music, paraded along Second, Adams, Main, Madison, Beale, aud other streets through the city. From tho following may be seen what organisations were in he procession: Baud of Mnsic. Different. Societies of tb Independent Order of l'ole-15erers, with K.ugs and Bamis. Memphis ISap'ibt Sunday-School I'nion Ouards, in Uniform, and bearing Wooden (Jans, iiurnl of Music. Carriaje containing Officers of tho Society.

St. John's Heliet Society. United ons of Zlon fr o. . Carriage containing Officers of the Organiza tions. 111E DIFFERENT PICHICS were largely attended aud very much eDjoyed. Over two thousand colored persons werepre3eut at Humboldt park, where the Sous of Ham cave their enter tainment. At Alexander park the Sons of Ham No. 2 gave their picnic, which also attracted a very large crowd, the principal feature Deing dancing. The Exposition building was thronged with coioied visitors, the attraction being an entertainment given by Avery Chapel benevolent organizatiau, managed by Anderson Montgomery and Georg'o Rash. At all of the above places, the colored people did justice to the festivi ties and pleasures incident to the Fourth of July. The greatest occasion, how ever, was thb entertainment given at tho Fair grounds, rive miles from the city, by the INDEPENDENT ORDER OF POLE-BEARERS. Excursion trains on the Charleston railroad went out several times during the day. every car being packed. By two o'clock there was a crowd of col ored people present estimated at three or four thousand. The different societies of tho Pole-Bearers, v,iih three bands of music, were there under charge of Pres ident Hezekiah Henley, Grand-Marshal John WisemaD, and Assistant-Grand-Marshal Sam Farrish. Headed by the Pole-Bearers' bras3 band, of which Mat Stephens is leader, and Steve Brown asalstant-leader,tbesoeieties formed out side of the gate and marched Into the inclrsure. The crowd increased with the arrival of every train, and by three o'clock at least live tnousand persons were on the groundp, which presented a real gala appearance. In one of the long halls were spread fifteen or more tables laden with refreshments and edi bles too varied to mention. The north hall of the building was devoted to Terpsichore, whose votaries seemed never wearied of the pleasure afforded them. THE INVITED GUESTS were General N. B. Forrest, General Gideon J. Pillow, Colonel M. C. Galla way, of the Appeal, Captain J. Harvey Mathes, of the Ledger, Alderman Henry G. Dent, Major Minor Meriwether aud Dr. Clark. These gentlemen procured a hack, in which they procteded from ths city to the Fair groundp, where they were received with much enthusiasm by i President Henley, of the Pole-Bearers; Grand-Marshal John Wiseman, Assist I ant-Marshal Sam Farrish.and other ofii 1 cers of the organization. The gentle I men were escorted to the main stand, I where, in acordance with the pro . cram me and invitations. General For rest, General Pillow and Hon. Casey Young were expected to address tao colored people. THE EXERCISES were opened by President Henley, who said : Gentlemen As representatives of the Union, ol which we are members, we come out to join you as tho repre sentatives of the people. We are glad to see you here, for we are come not to dis cuss or to take part in politics, but to pull down the political and to bring about peace, joy and union. Applause. When that is done there will he a mighty shout. Cheers I hope all who are here to-uay will do pleased, aud cau asy when they return to their homes, God lldss the Pole-Bearers! Immeu3o ap plause I will now introduce to you Brother G. W. Lewis, cf the Pole-Bearers, who will read my ADDRESS OF WELCOME, G. W. Levis then read tho welcome address, as follows: Gentlemen White friends of the city of Memphis and Shelby county, it affwds us great pleasure on this auspi cious day to greet ycu one and all with heartfelt respect, ai'd bid each of jwu, geutlemen, au aff. otiouate wel come. We sincerely thank you, hon ored sirs, for your presence on this mo mentous and memorable occasion. Let us assure you, gentlemen (I apeak for my people), that we feel cause for re newed encouragement, and entertain a new and well-grounded hope for our fu ture success. When we remembrjthat this sacred day we haveassembled to com memorate is sanctified and made dear to the heart of every true citizen of this great commonwealth by the baptism of American liberty, eealpd by the blood of their fathers in 1776, we earnestly pray that our future generations may proud ly recall this auspicious period as the moment in which fraternal discord has takeu its leave forever from .the manly and intelligent hearts of united Ameri can brotherhood, resolved that peace and forbearance, thatstays the aDgry passions of men, shall prevail henceforward from oue end of this great land of ours to the other, in which, through God's provi dence, our colored race may be permit ted to eDjoy a becoming and permanent part. In our heart of hearts, gentle men, we again reiterate our grateful thanks for the kind consideration you manifest, in your presence, with our peopls to-day, which we will endeavor to appreciate in thefuttire,and for which we thauk pach of you, gentlemen, at this time. Applauso. The reading of the above addres3 was frequently applauded, aud at its conclu sion the baud played a quick air. AN OFFERING OF PEACE. Presidenc Henley then said : "General Forrest, allow me tc introduce to you Miss Lou Lewis, who, as the representa tive of the colored ladies, will present you with a bouquet to assure you ot tho sincerity they eutertain for the objects of this occasion cheers aud as an offer ii.g of peace." Lou Luwis then advanced to where General Forrest wa3 standing aod pre sented the bouquet with the following remarks: "Mr. Forrest, allow me to present you this bouquet as a token of reconciliation aud an ollering of peace aud good will." Applause. RESPONSE OF GENERAL FORREST. General Forrest received the bouquet, and in reipoiisa said: Ladies and Gentlemen I accept the flowers as a memento of reconcilia tion between the white and colored races ol the southern States. I accept It more particularly as it comes from a colored lady, tor if there is any one on God's earth who loves the ladies I be lieve it is myself. Immense applause and laughter ThU day is a day that is proud to me, having occupied the posi tion that I did for the paBt twelve years, and been misunderstood by your race. This is the first opportunity 1 have had during that time to say that I am your friend. I am hero a representative of the southern people, one more slandered and maligned than any man in the na tion. I wili say to you and to the colored race tiiat the men who bore arms aud followed the Hag of the Confederacy are, with very few exceptions, your friends. I have an opportunity of saying what I have always felt that I am your friend, for my interests are your interests, and your interests are my interests. We were bora on the samu soil, breathe the samo air, and iivo in the same land. Why, then, can we not Uveas brothers? I will say that when the war broke out I felt it my duty to stand by my people. When tho time came I did tlie best I cou'.d, aud I don't believe I llickered. I came here with the jeers of some white people, who think that I am doing wrong. I believe that I can exert some influence, and do much to assist the peo ple in strengthening fraternal relations, and shall do all in my power to bring about peace. It has always been my mottoe to elevate every man to depress none. Applause. 1 want to elevate you to take positions in law offices, iu stores, on farms, and wherever you aro capable of going. I have not Raid any thing about politics to-day. I don't pro pose to say anything about polities. You have a right to elect whom you please; vote for tbo matt you think best, aud I think, when that is done, that you and I are freemen. Do as you consider right and honest in electing meu for office. I did not come hero to make you a long speech,although invited to do so by you. I am not much of a speaker, aud my business prevented me from preparing myself. I came to meet you as friends, and welcome you to the white people. I want you to come nearer to us. When I canscrve you I will do so. We have but oue flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in senti ment. Use your beat judgment in se lecting men for office aud vote as you think right. Many things have been said about mo whi h are wrong, and which white and black persons here, who stood by me through tbo war, cm contradict. I have been in the heat of battle when colored men, asked me to protect them. I have placed my self between thorn and the bullets of my men, aud told them they should be kept unharmed. Go to work, bo industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I'll come to your re lief. I thank you, ladies and gentle men, for this opportunity you have af forded me to bo with you, and to assure you that I am with you in heart and in fiand. Prolonged applause. Tho Pole-Bearers' band then played a piece, at the coudti-'ion of which Presi dent Henley introduced General Gideon J. Pillow who spoke as follows: OENERAL PILLOW'S SPEECH. Mr. Chairman, and Pr sident and Members of the Order ot PoU-Rearer.: By your special invitation, published in tbe Appeal, aud iuvitiug me to be present at your celebration of tha Fourth of July, aud to address you such couusel and advice as we might think best cal culated for your advancement, and for the promotion of tlie harmony and well being of tbe two races of people who dwell in ihis section of the country, I now appear before you to comply with that request. This I do from a sense of duty to the couutry and a3 a proof that tho white race feel an interest in the welfare of your race. Allow me to eav further that I am Lot a candidate for any office, and that I never expect to seek your votes. The white race of the American people have celebrated tho anuiversary of the nation's birthday ever since they achieved its in dependence. To commemorate the event of a natiou born to free dom is a patriotic duty. It is meet and proper that a people so blessed as have been the Americans should keep these anniversaries as national holidays, and that they should return thanks to the Gieat Ruler of nations. The infant natioD, whose birthday you now celebrate, has since grown into a great asd powerful government, with a population of perhaps fifty millions, and wi'h a territory, the largest m the world, with perhaps one exception, and with all its laws, its powers and authority exerted to protect the rights and liber ties of its people. Its flag is the ac knowledged symbol of liberty all over the world. In every nation and clime and tongue, wherever this flig is f eeq, it is recognized as the emblem of rfte great confederate republic of America, whose powers are dedicated to the pro tection of the liberties and to the pr. -motion of the happiness and welfare f Its people. The fundamental politic il maxim of the government is that it .l rives ita existence and powers f.)-.i the people, and that it exists for U:-.r benefit. It thus reverses tho pol: i ai maxima of other governments from tho remotest period of time; that is that government exists for the benefit of the ruling powers, aud that the people, their rights and welfare, are of secondary importance. When this na tional government waa formed, your fathers and mothers and ancestors were held in slavery. This system of slavery had been introduced into the American provinces by tho laws and policy of the government of Great Britain. Slavery then existed in all the States composing the Union, with one exception. Tho northern States at au early day adopted a sjiitem of gradual emancipation. Tola resulted in tne removal of nearly all the slaves from those States to the southern States of the Union. Here your race multiplied and was most prolific In less than a century it bad increased from some hundreds of thousands to over fmr million of souls. The late great civil war of the States resulted in your emancipa tion. No nation, in ancient or modern times, engsged iu civil war, ever mus tered such armies, or fought such battles, 83 did the people of this great republic. In the latter part of this war many of your race were drawn into the Federal armies. That government offered you your freedom. To accept the offer was but natural. Many of tho southern leaders were in favor of making you a like ofler. But that pol icy did not prevail, and "by your arms you helped to achieve your own emancipation. President Lincoln's emancipation proclamation was the first official recognition of your rights to free dom. That proclamation was issued on the thirty-first of September, 1803. Tho triumph of the Federal arms gave force and permanency to the emancipation proclamation of the President. The several amendments to the Federal con stitution, since adopted, placed your freedom and your civil and political lights under the protection of that instru ment and of the Federal government. Your rights and those of the whius race are thus put upon the same footing. You and I are equal bafore the law. All the powers of that government are pledged for your enjoyment of the liberty and the right? guaranteed by tbe constitu tion. The white race, in ths war of the revolution, achieved their own inde pendence and established this govern ment. That government gave you your liberties. You were taken from your farmer owners by Ita strong arm, and at the cost of millions of its treasure and oceans of the blood of tho white race, and you were made the equal before tue law -.if the richest and greatest of tbo w!i't9 race. No power on the earth coul i re-enslave you. You have been told by bad men that the white race cf the south are your enemies, and that they would re-enslave you. This is false. No man of truth and honor would tell you so. The white race of the south are your natural friends. In the late civil war, the. wbUe raca in the south were engageiFift deadly c inflict with the government, growing out of disputed constitutional questions questions involving tbe rights of the States and the powers of the genera! government. They would have pre vented your emancipation if thoy could, but the white race in the south was itself overcome and conquered by the great armies of the government. While your former owners would have prevented your emaucipation, yet they would uot now re-enslave you if it were left to their own free will. Those who tell you otherwise utter a calumny on tho white race, and they know it to be a calumny. Having thus had conferred upon ycu at a cost iu blood and treasure so great the priceless boon of liberty, it remains to be seen whether your raca will appre ciate this great act of beneficence off the part of the nation and prove your selves worthy the liberties of Ameri can citizenship. In the history of tho human family there is no instance re corded of a government, at such a cost to its people and treasure, emancipat ing a race of people and elevating it to full citizenship. To fulfill your duties to this government.you should always bear to it true allegiauce. But this is not your whole duty. You should obey all its laws; you should be sober and industri ous people, and by your energy and fru gal habits, you should add to the aggre gate wealth of the natiou, and acquire for yourselves the necessaries and com forts of life. If you should be idle aud iudolent, or dissipated, you will become paupers and vagabonds. Alio! that class will prove themselves unfit for liberty. Liberty consists in the rational enjoy ment of equal and just laws. Liberty is not licentiousness. It is not in the uubridled indulgence of your own lusts or passions. These indulgences are sure of destroying your lives and usefulness. No physical law is more certain in its regults than that such habits beget di; -ease and death. All that class of your race will rapidly disappear. The gov ernment has given you your liberties, and conferred upon you the full citizen ship which was the birthright of the white raca. It can do no more for you. It cannot place you in ease and wealth. These things can be acquired by you, as they are by tho industrious and frugal of the white race. It is the great law of our being that we must live by the sweat of our brow. By in dustry, sobriety and frugal habits, every mau, in the enjoyment of good health, cau acquire tne necessaries and com forts of life. Intelligence is power, and, when combined with frugal aud indus trious habits, it is wealth. The value of intelligence caunot bo overestimated. You need most tho means of education. The grown up of your race are advanc ing and have advanced in intelligence very much since your emaucipation. The education ol the people is tho duty ot the States in which you aro citizens. That does not pertain to the por ers and duty of the Federal government. The wiiite race cf Tennessee have, by their own free will, voted a tax upon their property to raise the means of educating tho rising generation of the white and black races. While by law the Sfate k'eps the schools for the races separate, i . gives equal advantages to each race. The fact that the white race thus taxes the property owned by it to educate your children is evidence of tbe con viction on the mind of that race that they a'e interested in your intelligence as a race. It is au acknowledgment that the two races have a common in terest in each other and in each other's welfare. Intelligence, with iadustrious and virtuous habits, will certainly beget respectability and social position. So cial position and respectability can be won by any of you, but these the gov ernment cannot confer. It has not and caunot confer these upon any of the white race. It is the fruits of moral worth. This is not and cannot be made a legal right. Equal and just laws, with a great and powerful government to en force them, we now have. Next to theso equal and just laws is an honest admin istration or the laws. Honest and ca pablo laws are essential, and the only means of preserving the rights and lib erties of the people. "Where the;e offi cers are chosen by popular vote, as they are in this government, the responsibil ity resting on the voting populatioa is very great. The highest duty you owe your country, as citizens in the exer cise of the elective franchise, is to vote for none but honest and capable men for any office. My advice would bs to discard all partisan views, to disband all colored political organizations. It was these colored po litical organizations in hostility to the white race of tho south that nroduoed ! the color-line amoug the white race cf ' the south. You have seen its workings. The interests of the white and coioied races in the south are inseparably inter mingled, and aro dependent on ewh other. What advances the interests of the one advauces the interests of the other. I purposely avoid all dUeassIou of political questions. This is a day ded icated to the commemoration of a nation born to freedom. The discussion of po litical questions would bo out of place, and would mar the dffty cf the patriot. we may wen speaK ci tne power, great ness and glory of the government, and of tho dut s of the pr.trlots, and of those virtues, b.bi:s and pursui's which are calculated to elevate the citizen and to advance him in social position and iu the scale of civilization. In all yonr dealings with others, be honest, truthful and just Fulfill your coutrac's in good faith. B kind to your fellow-men, aud be courteous and polite to all men. These will beget the confidence and re spect of all men. Social position i3 the fruit of these, and will as certainly fal low the practice of these virtues as reli gion follows the practice cf morality and tho christian virtues. The government can no more confer on you social posi tion than it cau morality and religion. It has conferred upon you equality bs-l'-re the law, and it will protect you in the enjoyment of these equal rights with all its powers; but it caunot make you industrious and ust-ful men; it caunot make you good christians, nor compel others to regard your social standing. These are beyond ita powers, but they are as much within your own control as are your habits of industry, frugality and virtue. I havo said that tho white race of the south are your natural IViends You were misled at tho eud cf the war by bad men cf the Republican party, who wore seeking to use your votes to get into power and into lucrative office. Theio places thpy wanted for their own selfish purposes. They pandered to your prejudices; they told you that you should have forty acres of land and a mulo, and that the rebels would put you back into slavery. By your votes ntauy of them reached positions they were not worthy to fill, aud they practiced frauds upon the State governments and the people, aud robbed the coun try of vast amounts of money. But they did not get for you the forty acxe3 of land aud tho mule" If you had not thus put yourself In tho hands of tho enemies of southern white people, but had placed your couiideucj in them and had co-operated with them iu necessary reforms in the policy of State govern ment, they would have risen your ullies, aud would have adopted such forms of legislation as would have greatly ad vanced your interests. It is the fate of the white race in the south and of your race to dwell in this section of country. You wero born aud raised iu the scuth. Your constitctiuus are suited to the mild and genial climate of the south. The native climate of your race was in the tropical region of Africa. There your ancestors havelived sines the early settlemnnt after the Hood. The cold climate and long winters of tho north you will not bear. But your race can live and prosper iu all the tat03 of the south. No race of people have ever in creased ao rapidly as did yours while in a state of slavery. The gr;at want of your race now is home.j laud to culti vate which is your owa. We havo In the south land in great abundance for ten timea the whole population of the south. We have all" the open land which was, cultivated before your emau cipation, We havo open laud enough to furnish you all with good homsa and to cultivate, if it was properly dis tributed. It la all of good quality. An industrious man could make a good liv ing on any of it. Vast quantities of these lands are now uncultivated and are the richest in the world. This land belongs mostly to the white race. You arrayed yourselves and your influence against them. You bscame active poli ticians, and sought to rule and oppress the southern people by yoar Yankee friends. They have ruled aud ruined the country since "tho war, at-d by your support. You organized your whole race in hostility to the southern people. To counteract this, the white race or ganized against you, all nationalities. This color-line was a line to fight over and across. Matters had nearly reached that point. If that issue becomes gen eral all over the south it must result ia the destruction of your race. With tbe assumption of your natural position of fiiends and allies of tho southern white people, the legislation cf the south would becore friendly toward your people. Left to themselves, the white race hav ing a direct interest in your welfare and prosperity, would seek by just laws to advance your interests and to qualify you for good citizens. " ithout tliH la bor of your race the gret body ol the land iu the south would go uncultivated. Without this land to cultivate you could not live There is therefore a depend ence lietween the races tho ono on Ui' other which makes the prosperity of either impossible with out the well-being of the other. If you cease your hostility to the white race of the south, aud fall into the general policy and intents of the south, and identify yourselves in inter est with them, and vote for none but honest and capable men forclli?e, we would correct the abuses which have crept iuto every department of busine a?. The wisest statesmanship would adopt measurea which would in the end enable you to gei homes of your own, and land to cultivate. There are millions of acres of land all over tho south forfeited to the States for non-payment of taxes. Let congress and the States legislate in harmony for tho disposition of these lands. The States aro bankrupted be cause the owners of these lauds cannot pay their taxes. Let laws be passed providing that after a certain period of time within which for these lauds to be redeemed, the States eball sell the unimproved- lauds so forfeited to the gen eral gA'crumsutatonediillar and twenty-live ceuts per acre, and at two dollars and fifty cents per aero for improved lands, payable ia its levy bonds; pro vided th j general government shall have these lands laid of! into twenty and forty-acre lots, and will resell them at the same prices, to actual settle's. In this way and by these means the States would b3 greatly relieved from their enormous debts, and iu a few years tlie great body of industrious men, who would save their means, would ha able to secure to themselves and their fam ilies comfortable honips. There is not a man of you but could save one hundred dollars a year if you would try ; that would get you a home. Under such a system, sept in force for tan or fifteen yoars, fully two-thirds of the industrious aud ab'e-budied men, white and black, could procure themselves good homes. Then, ag3in, many of the old landed proprietors still hold large bodies of their former estates iu theirownhaud3. There is no sale of these lands, for there is no marfitt tor them. They ca.iuot work them. Let congress pses laws author izing tho government to receive relin quishments of such lands as owners will convey to it, at a fixed rate, to bo paid for in ita levy bonds, and let tht e lands be laid off by the government into twen ty aud forty-acre lots, and bo resold to actual tettlers, white and black alike, at the same prices the lands are con veyed to it. These sales should be made by the government on annual pay ments. In this way and from these two sources the great body of tbe southern white and black races could be provided with homes within a period of ten years. The details of this system I do not enter into. The Federal and State govern ments aro equally interested in the peo ple, who are citizeus of both, having permanent homes, and in their prosper ity and well-being, and in the aggregate wealth which good citizenship, indus try, and a thrifty and permanently fixfd population, identified with the soil, will be suro to beget. Liberty, with the means of comfortable livelihood, is a gieat blessing; liberty with pauper Ism means the jail, the workhouse and the penitentiary system of slavery. Lib erty of this last kind ia but a name a delusion. It Is a condition ol dependence so Bearly akin to slavery as to have but little practical value. My colored friends, give up politics as a pur suit. It cn'y pa3 the cfliceholders. It does not feed aud clothe your wife and children. That man is your best friend who tells you how to return yourfrieudly relation with your old friends and neigh bora, and who points out the way to you o' solid prosperity, and who proposes t adopt laws friendly to your intejests. The great need that you have Is 'o be come the owner of your ov. n onme, aod of land on which to mako a support. The suggestions above, if carried iuto effect by prudent laws and wi leginli tion, would relieve the Statf s. from op pressive dert, would great'y reduce the taxea upon all interests and rursut s,it.d several colored gentlemeu,wi eould do would soon provide many poor and . jIM,iw tothe occasion, wouW also ad-homele.-s white and black citizens wi'h t .ire the crowd.

Allegiance and protection sr erWve duties. A man who cannot or will not pay his taxes has forfeited his allegiance aud cannot claim the protection of the laws of tho govern ment. If all tae people of Ten nessee should cease to pay the taxes on their lands, we should cease to have any government. If one may never pay his taxes, then justice requires that iioue shall be required to do so. Upon the principle of justice all govern ments mu9t rest. There i1 no juslica or equality of lights in a government making one class ot ita population pay taxes and of its allowiug another class never to pay. The State government cannot continue to exist without its revenues. If men cannot, or will not, pay their taxes and help ;o support the government, pa3s the land to those who can aud will pay the taxes. If by this means the great body of the poor men, white and black, can get homes, and raise their families, and become identified with the soil, and help to sup port the government and make the means necessary to her existence, and add to tl'e great aggregite wealth of the State and Federal governments, a wt-e statesmanship should shape the policy of State and the National legislation ac cordingly. During the delivery of his address General Pillow was frequently and most heartil applauded. REMARKS OF COL. M. C. CALLAWAY. Colonel M. C. G&Ilaway, of the Ap peal, boiDg introduced by President Henley, said: My Countrymen I regret excrel ingly T am incapacitated from speaking. I make my living by wriiiog. I never made a speech in my life, but I have this to say to you: the invitation from President Henley, of the Independent Order of Pole-Bearers, is one of the greatest things of tho pge it is mag nauimous. It buried the hatchet, and we are nw fncuds. Cheers. I have here a letter from our congressman, Col. Casey Youg, which my frienJ, Col. G. P. M. Turner, will plessa read. Ap plause. . WHAT COLONEL TURNER SAID. Colonel Turner then arose aud said: Mr. President and Fellow-Citi-zens At the request of Colonel Galla way, it affords me pleasure to read in your hearing a letter from our distin guished representative in congress, Hon. Casey Ycuug, who. by reason of a per sonal miiforlune, nunable to be here, but whoso heart is filled with patriotism, whose words aro always just,aad whose soul holds out the olive-branch of peaca anu good will to his fellows. You will listen to his words with pleasure. I will read them. Cheers. COLONEL CASEY" YOUNO'S LETTER was then read by Colonel Turner, as follows: Memphis, July 5, 1ST".. Colonel M. C. Uallaway: Dear Sir Confined to my room by injuries resulting from a recent unfor tunate accident, I am unable to attend the celebration of the Fourth of July, to be had to-day by the colored people, and to which, along with yourself and other gentlemen, I was invited some days since through tho columns of the Ap peal. I write you this note to express my regret that I cannot be present with the others included in the invitation at tho proposed celebration, and to request you to make known to those who in vited us the reason of my absence and the interest I feel in the development of the spirit which seems to prompt their actiou. Cheers. In recent mani festations upon the part of the colored people I trust I eee a gratifying evidence that they are be ginning more clearly to perceive aud comprehend thau heretofore the neces sity of a more thorough Identity iu feel ing and action with the people amoig whom they live, and with whose inter est aud fortunes their own destiny act! that of their posterity must bs linked for many generations to come. The future relations of the two races in the southern State3 is a subject fraught wita the greatest interest and importance to every thoughtful mind; for whatever intent be the capacity of the one or the other to work out its own destiny il left aloup, free from geographical contact, yet living in the same territory, raiu gled as they are iu our social and politi cal structure, there must of neets.-ity exist something of mutual intere.-t and mutual dependence. App'.ausB Wuat those relations ought to be, is and has been for years apparent to every one who haa looked calmly, without parti san zeal or individual prejudice upon the situation of the couutry and the cir cumstances which havo surrounded us, but how to accomplish a result so earnestly desired by those regardful of the public well-being, ha been a ques tion much nioro difficult of solu tion. There is little or nothing iu the past connection of the two races whicti could be wisely evoked to aid iu shaping their future. It were, therefore, better to let the past be forgotten and look alone to tho condition of the pres ent to determine those that are to come. It may be true, as they say, that the colored people have, since the war, suf fered a multitude of evi's at the hands of those who claimed to be their best and truest friends, but perhaps this was what might have been expected under the peculiar circumstances, which have surrout led them; but, however, the road to their delivei uice from these evils is open, and they have only to pursue it to escape from their influence. Applause. Their destiny is, in a great measure, in their own hands and under their owu control, aud they may, by an intelligent comprehension of the privi leges aud duties of citizenship, and an honest md conscientious discharge of ita obligations, advance in process, prosperity aud happiness, or by becom ing blind iLstruments for the ac ,m plishmeut of selfish purposes, i'l ihe hands of bad men of any class, they may bring degradation and ruin upon their r.-e. Applause. It i3 ouly by cuitivati: g a friendly spirit between the two races, dealing j isily aud fairly with each other and waiting with patience and forbearance for the effect of time and experience, that the permanent interest and prosperity of both ni3y be secured. Applause" To assist in bringing about these ruit-i is, iu my judgment, oue of the highest duties of the patriot aud philanthropist. I accept this occasion as the auspicious beginning of a period in tbe history of the south, when every feeling of enmity and hostility which may have hereto fore existed between the white and the colored races shall have passed away, and when every class of our people shall havo a higher conception of the duties and obligations which devolve upon them in the respective positions they occupy in our system of society and gov ernment. I am yours, very respectfully, CASEY YOUNii. At tho conclusion of the reading the crowd gave "three cheera for Colonel Casey Young," and this was followed by music from the band. REMARKS OF ALDERMAN DENT. Aldermau Henry G. Dent being in troduced by President Henley, said that be was not here for the purpose of mak ing a speech; lie never did make a speecb, and even if he eonhi make oik he would not do so to-day, m time b the gentlemen who piecedett btatttn i the letter of Colone'.

He hoped that thin occasion would realize the expectations of ita frieuds and those who had sought to orir.g about fraternal aud ainWble relations between the white and the colored people. He warmly commended the undertaking, aud encouraged them to carry out its purpose, the accom plishment of which would benefit both white and black, and promote their mu tual interests. Major Meriwether was applauded several times during his re marks. HENLEY'S ADDRESS. G. W. Lawis then read the following address of President Henley To the Colored Ladies and Gentlemen: This day we celebrate is commemora tive cf tbe national birth of our great country, whk-h occurred ninety-nine years ago.
