LETTERS THE PEOPLE. The California Crass. Editors Appeal It seems that your criticisms on California have raised a terrible tempest from thoje who, we think, are paid to work in the interest of certain partita in tnatatate. Juy ODject in writing this is to uphold you in the truths you have written in regard to that country. As Mr. Gift says, 1 minn yon know but little of that State. Had you spent nine years of your life there, as I have, your criticisms would have been much stronger than they have been. We only see and hear hutonesideof the question from the advocates of that State. You hear nothing cheering from the laboring classes. It Is only from such men as Mr. Gift and other interest ed parties that such glowing accounts are written up. Why, I tell you, sir, and I speak from experience, there is not a county in West Tennessee that is not superior in advantages for a laboring man than almost any portion of Califor nia. I left California in 1861. Even as early as that date the surface-mining of the entire State was almost entirely wbrked out, and the only mines that were paying wero worked by heavy cap italists. Most of the mining is now done by costly machinery, owned by joint stock companies. It is simply absurd for a man to expect to make money at this day in California by working the mines without a heavy capital, and Mr. Gift knows it. Sir, every Californian will tell you that there are numbers of once-thriving villages, of from one to four thousand Inhabitants, that are now entirely deserted, some of them not even containing a Chinaman. And such is tho northern, soutlieru and middle mines. As to the climate and healtn of the State, it has no superior, it Is a glo rious country to live in. But to the poor man, who has to work for his living, I would say, stay away. There is not a State in the Union where there is so many poor peonle according to popula tion. Why, sir, you will see more "strapped" men In California in one day than you would in traveling the whole length of the State of Tennessee. The State is overrun with Chinamen, the cheapness cf whose labor white men cannot compete with. There is not five acres of good agricultural land in one body vacant in the Stat All through the Sierra Nevad' anu coast ranee mountains every little val ley is taken up or owned by somebody. Tnere is plenty of vacant government land in the State, but it is useless for all purposes with the single exception of grazing. Mr. Gift knows this to be the case. Ask him if there is an acre of vacant land in Napa valley, or further on to Clear lake, or still further on to Russian river. What good land there is has long since been taken up and set tied upon; still the country is thinly In habited. 1 have seen men in Napa val ley, ntteen yeaisago, anxious to worn at twenty to twenty-rive dollars permonth. After harvest is over there is no worl; to be had in the agricultural counties for six months, save cnance jobs occasion ally. Mr. Gift's figures read well on pa per, but if he will admit the truth he will say there is more loafers in San Francisco than all West Tennessee to gether, and more beggars than in the whole of our btate. These are facts, Messrs. Editors. I was a resident of that State for nine years. I have not written this for publication, but for the purpose of upholding you in the rifeht. I do not want my countrymen misled by raise reports. Tell the people of Tennes see to remain where they are, or at least to avoid the (1 will say) "California fraud." And you may ten tnose wish ing information in regard to that State to confer with me, and 1 can tell them as much as Mr. Gift, and probably more to their interest. Jiixcuse meioroccu pying so much of your time. v. T. M'CATHEN. Jackson, Tenn., July 5, IS73. , New nod Old Debts. Editors Appeal You will excuse my .intruding upon your time and space to express my views about the proposed new way to pay old debts a subject concerning the whole community, and should start the path to arguments into which every citizen in and arouxd the city of Memphis should participate, Great magnitude rests upon but one question for the people to Bolve, and that is, whether or not the old or new debts the city legally made and honestly owes Bhall be paid, un tnis tne popular view should be expressed, and waru.meetings held for the discussiou and ventilation of that subject, so that the people, by a free ballot, may mane a uennite settle' tlement of said question, and the sooner settled the better it will be for the city, In her present condition she has to pay double, and often treble, its value for whatever she purchases and to which she is morally and religiously bound, for she must furnish supplies to nourish and assuage the sick, feed the prisoners and horses, maintain sanitary regu lations, and keep the streets and bridges in good repair. The city must expect to pay high prices and meet with impedi ments in successfully managing her af fairs so long as speculators' rings and usurers shall keep their sway over the destinies of the city. She must be relieved of these embarrassments, and the speedier the better, for no material relief can for years be expected from the economy practiced by the present ad ministration. Statistics from last year show that by a higher taxation and more income than can be expected this year, the city expended onenundredand thir ty-seven thousand seven hundred and eleven dollars and thirty-nine cents, more man ner income: and it will re quire the most stringent husbandry to retrench to that amount, which is a marvelous work, and if successfully car ried out by theadministration, they will merit more praise tnan any ever did be fore; and assumed that the administra tion, by their determination, are success' ful, will as yet not save one penny to pay off old debts with, and lessen the paymenc of interest. The provision made by the wise legislature for the city in the charter is either repudiation or to strangle the creditors into eternity, or equally as good, for it requires fjrty- mne years and a nan to pay tne -bonded indebtedness, and the allowance for the interest due on all sources must not fall short of at least two hundred and forty or fifty thousand dollars annually. Add to the shortcoming compound interest. and when will we stop? The legislature could not possibly havo intended to in clude bonds, coupons, judgments, and other Heating debts due prior to the pro mulgation of the present charter. Their claims having a priority could certainly not be abridged by later legislation, nor could a law be just that prefers one creditor to another, except on living necessities, But should the legislature have done so intentionally, they and their advisers have inflicted the greatest injury on the city, and also opeued a door ror great corruption ; for he that will grease best will be paid first, which will force every , t iu - one uaviug a ciaiui uu 1110 uuy iu pro cure judgments, exeeu'ious, manaamus es. etc., at the expense of the city, be fore tho creditor becomes entitled to anything. Will the people idle away their time and leave tne city struggling, and thereby increase mistrust, lower her credit, and keep immigration and cap ital from settling in her midst,aud being compelled to pay high prices so long as she makes no attempt to pay her indebt edness gradually? Will the citizens stand all of this suffering, and see the city drifting in a swift current to bank ruptcy, which will bring disgrace and dishonor upon the city, its present and future generations? Is there any need for all of this perilous embarrassment, when, by the new way proposed to pay old debts, the city can be freed of all her past-due indebtedness to March 1st with in six or eight years, which is rather long, but very lenient in the present stage of affairs, and which is not burdensome to the tax-payer, who will be compensated tenfold thereby. The creditors will gladly agree to take what they actually paid to the city, with legal interest from the day ofinvest ment, and will stop all the ways of pros ecution as soon as they are sure to re ceive their money within sis or eight years at furthest, with legal interest. The modus operandi, as proposed by the new way to pay the old debts, should bo adopted and favored by every inhabit ant, carrying with it a thousand-fold of blessings to the prosperity !and honor of the city. But as Memphis has amm g her inhabitants' men of talent and gie.it financial abilities, the writer calls upon them to suggest better plans, if any, that will be acceptable to the beggar as well as to thejmillionaire. Something must be done to save the ciiy, and the sooner the better for the tax-payer, tire com merce, manufacturer, mechanic and la borer, and to the creditor likewise, and let justice be done and practiced. J UBTIUE. Cold and Hot. Editors Appeal I have taken from my journal eight years, with 1S75, in order;to see the coldest and hottest days in June and January and February of each year, to get the coldest and hottest days in these two winter months. I find trfe year 1S75 the coldest and hot test; I find eighteen days in June the hottest for years nearly two-thirds of the month, at noon, from ninety to ninety six degrees. The coldest was the tenth of January, 1875 two degrees above zero. This was the hottest June on record for many yeard, and I predict an abundance of rain from this date up to the seventh of August, which will make an abundant grain crop, but prove disastrous to cotton. On June 3d, 14th and 23d it was ninety-six degreesjon the north wall of my house, bee tame oe low: 5 gs?i25gg ccceeae casavsa O O 9 (B O C 1 ti tC t3 !5 tO to coi.w toCnc5o!o jsanoH sscs:cc o 3 e a a 3 c p o o so op ill nTi-toio tOCSO I g-j -l 9c 02 j J o - O i -jsspiool BBSBCCB PPS '".to I 1 -: -1 -! -1 -l ' Qi CO 18.0 x I "AUQ OJ9Z9AOqK .1 s 9 p t o n fc-e-mTjE-i PPsoaPP BBCfftrBS t M -1 -1 n -1 o H rO -O 10 lOO'iocnx'-C: - ,Bfl 1S9HOTJ tocc I" jdAOqv pas SSJSoco .SG s.ttip I 93 CltCG io jaqnra.NI K. B. SHIPP, SPKtsr.DAi.E, Miss., June 30th. The Keely Motor. Editors Appeal Under the above neaoing jl nouce an extract in your sun day's edition from the bavannah Morn ing News, purporting to have been writ ten by "Doctor" John Weacott, presi dent of a F lorida railroad, and prorevs ing to explain tho secret of the "Keely motor." .Passing over tne fact, now pretty gen erally admitted by scientific men, that the so-called "motor" is a most unrodtigated humbug and spindle, I desiro to correct the learned doctor's chemistry, so airily displayed in the News's arl icle above referred to. In the first place, dilute sulphuric acid, acting upon mat Die dust, does not produce car bouc acta gas, but does produce or evolve, as one result of the tction of the acid on the base, carbonic acid tho gas of our eoda-fountaim, the gas of fermentation, uarbouc acid, called atoo picnic acid, one of the pro ducts or coal tar, is quite a uiueront pro duct, it is a substance, when pure, crystalling below eignty degrees i ahr enheit, but fluid above that temperatuie. It has a strong odor, similar to creosote, and is used in medicine and the aits as an antiseptic, and for the same purposes as creosote. uar 001110 acid, undsr onii nary circumstances a gas, heavier than air, and hence capable of being -poured from one vessel to another like any other fluid, under a pressure of thirty-six at- mospiiers becomes a liuid, brlgtit, pel lucid, hivhlv refractive in faot. if ana. riytio chemistry is to be believed, a liquid diamond, or ratner tne diamond in a liquid state. Tnis nuiu suddenly re leased jrom lis enormous pressure, con densed into a snow-like solid, developing the utmost degree of cold known. I write on the wing, and without oppor tunity to refer to textbooks, but If my memorv serves me, tho degree of cold reached in the solidification of carbonic acid gas is one hundred and sixty-four degrees Fahrenheit, below zero. At any rate, it Is sufficient to freeze mercury so rhat it can be ham mered on an anvil. I once saw the late lamented Baron Liebig (the father of modem chemistry) freeze a basin full of mercury (not less tnan twenty-live or thirty pounds avoirdupois) so hard that the lump of frozen metal was passed all around the class of a hundred students without showing the slightest signs of melting, ur course an enormous force can be developed by fluidifying carbonic acid gas; but this gas is produced by the intervention 01 "acids, cnemicai decom position," etc., while the Keely motor swindlers' claim that their wonderful "power" is developed without che mical change, and without the intervention of acids, etc. The "private circular" which the company send out, and in which they claim that the working of the "mo tor" is indorsed by Haawell, W. W. Wood, and engineers of like skill and ability, claims that a "cold gas is devel oped without the use of chemicals or electricity," showing a pressure of many tnousana pounas to tneequareincn. Tne Scientific American was the first paper bold and honest enough to attacs the transparent humbug, and the three last numbers or this truly valuable lournal have articles which, if carefully read, will convince any unprejudiced man of the arrant rascality of tbe most barefaced swindle of the century; and to the (Seten- ujic American 1 refer your readers for further information as regards the Keely motor. f. l j. Osceola, July 3, 1575. Money JLtndlnc vs. Mnnnractnrlns. Editors Appeal There has been many able leaders published in the Ap peal, and also many valuable letters inserted in its columns from practical men, showing the necessity of manufac tories being established in Memphis, if we ever expect to be a nrosneroua citv. What has been the result of all these anneals to the moneved men nfnnrnitv? Their answer is, "I havo no money to spare Tnat 1 could invest in manufactur ing." Let any person offer many of these same men two and a half percent. a month, with good security, and they have any quantity to loan. This is what is killing Memphis ;and prevents estab lishing industrial works in our city: it is also the cause of such a large number or our leading mecnanics leaving us for want 01 employment, instead or seeing the smoke of the factory and hearing tne ousy num or tne worKsnop in all parts of tho cily. The practical me chanic can see the necessity of tbe workshops to build up our city, and the advantage we nave over our northern manufacturers in the low price of raw material, and tne easy access we have to ship our wares to all parts of the south both by river and railroad Will the owners of real estate continue to see their properly depreciate In value every year, anu tneir nooses vacant ror want of tenants, and the merchant and nis cierKS continue to ngnt files in some cool place in the summer for want of customers to wait on, when they know as wen as you and tne practical man does, if they would join tho practical man in establishing manufactories all tbeee things could be avoided? The safe plan to establish manufactories is for our energetic and skillful mechanics and capitalists to unite in business; let the mechanic attend to the workshop and the moneyed man to the financial de partment. To accomplish this, the me chanics are now maturing a plan that will do more toward establishing work shops m our city than any other that has been adopted heretofore. This is their plan : Tney are forming a society. to be composed or business men and mechanics, and effect a permanent or ganization and a union between capital and labor. There must be a concert of action between these two classes if we ever intendio prosper. The union be tween capital and labor has built un our northern and western cities, and let us profit by their example. As soon as they get this society organized, they propose to establish a reading-room, and once a week some mechanic will address the society on tbe subject of manufacturing. Each will address the society regarding the manufacture that ji b Is I a r 1 be has had practical experience in, therefore he will be able to give the cost of labor and material of bis particular trade, and will show by mathematical demonstration that many articles could be made and sold in Memphis for a less price than we are now paying for the same, and realize a handsome profit. I hopo by this means there will be a con cert of action between the mechanic and capitalist, that they may co-operato in establishing manufactories In our city. By doing this we will benefit all classes, and infuse new life in business of all kinds. I learn that this society Is now preparing their constitution and by laws; also, will soon canvass the city fir members to their organization. Their yearly dues will be very low, only enough to pay room-rent and actual ex penses. It is, in the writer's opinion, to the interest of the business men and owners of real estate to become mem bers of this association, and co-operate with us for reasons that I have given. Since tbe main object of this association is to devise means to establish manufac tures in Memphis. Will the press trive give them their support? Some of the leading men of this organization inform me that the reporters for the press will always be welcome visitors to their meetings. What say you, Messrs. Edi tors, to this mechanical move?

A SHOOTING AFFKAY. Ex-Tnrnltey Madigan Killed by Police man Cnrmlctiuel Verdict ot tbe Coroner's Jury Carmlcliael Admitted 10 Ball. Between four and five o'clock yester day afternoon P. Madigan was shot and killed, in " his grocery store, southwest corner of Jackson and Front streets, by Policeman Carmichael. When the fact of the shooting became known, a large crowd of people flocked to the scene of the tragedy, eager to catch a glimpse of the wounded man, who lay dying upon the floor where he fell when the fatal shots were fired. Justice Miller, being notified of the homicide, summoned A JURY OF INQUEST, and repaired to the house. Madigan was lying upon the floor, his breast be smeared with blood, and his body being exposed to all who had gained access into the store. A number of witnesses were examined, but their statements wero so conflicting that no intelligent person could possibly form a correct opinion aa to the real cause of the diffi culty between Madigan and Carmichael, and tho circumstances of the homicide. One , witness, named Powers, testified that Carmichael, with a warrant of ar rest, stated the purpose of his visit to Madigan, who swore that he would not go with him to the stauonuouse. iue officer seized Madigan, who was behind the counter, when a scuttle ensued, dur ing which the latter struck the police man in tbe face and caused the blood to flow. Thereupon Carmichael fired, but the bullet mis3ed Madigan and struck the window. A cessation of hostilities then ensued, and in a few minutes Car michael again seized Madigau to cany him to the stationhouse. Witnes3 and another man asked tbe officer not to shoot, and the latter said he was merely doing his duty, but intended to take Madigan to tbe stationhouse. Madigan wa9 now standing behind tho counter hv the side of a barrel. He tried in vain to separate them, but Carmichael raised bis pistol and, gritting hia teeth, DELIBERATELY SHOT HIM, he being in a few feetof his victim, who, rushing forward, seized a monkey wrench aud hurled it at the policeman, who jumped out of the back door. Then Madigan fell t-peechless and expired in a few minutes. One negro woman testi fied that Madigan fired the first shot, causing Carmichael to jump out o: tne back door, one of the men throwing a chair at him. Witness also said that there were three men beside Madigan iu the room, one of whom, with MadL tran, seized the onicerand swore mat ue 8i'iouI(l not make the arrest. Thus the evidence is conflicting, but it must be remembered that Powers aud two other witnesses who testified were friends of Madigan, and in his house, and accord ing to the evidence two of them de clared he should not be arrested, one hurling a monkey-wrench and the other a chair at the officer. ANOTHER STATEMENT is that Carmichael went with a warrant to arrest Madigan, who, according to every witness examined by the coroner's jury, swore mat ue would not go witn tne omcer 10 tno stauonuouse. wnen Madigan refused to go, the officer seized him, and Madigan struck him in the face, but then asked to be loosened, as he would put on his coat and go the sta tionhouse. The officer assented to this, but Madigan going behind tho counter, seized a monkey-wrench, with which he assaulted Carmichael, who fired twice.the last shot striking in the region of the heart and producing death in a few minutes. One of the witnesses, Powers, testified that Carmichael struck Madigan over tho head several times with his pistol; an examination by the ury railed to nnd any mares 01 violence on that part of the dead man. THE VERDICT OF THE JURY was given after several minutes consul tation. It was that Madigan came to his death from a p!st9l-shot fired by Car michael, who, under the circumstances, was not justifiable in shooting him. It is evident that a thorough examination of the case will throw quite a different phase upon this homicide than one would form from this verdict. Officer Carmichael is one of the best policemen in Memphis, and we have never heard anything derogatory of nis character as peaceable man. Madigan was turn Key at the Adams-street stationbouse during Johnson's administratiou. and is said to have been a man ot fiery temper, After shooting Madigan, the p9lceman surrendered himself to the civil author ties, and will doubtless have a prelim inaiy examination before a magistrate to-day. THE WARRANT OF ARREST for Madigan was issued yesterday after neon by Recorder Winters. The war rant was issued upon the affidavit of a widow woman named Mr3. Doyle, who sought Kecorder Winters and told him mat Mauigan nad beaten one 01 ner nephews over the head with a pistol, and she wanted mm arrested. There upon the warrant was issued and placed in .the officer's hand. The policeman was release! upon giving bail, Becorder Winters aud 'Squire Boyle being bords- mon, to appear before Justice Miller at ten o'clock Saturday morning. A. KAUFHAN'i RESTAURANT.
