President Norton id! jrwed m that negotiatioLS were then pending which, if successful, would raKe money enough to resume work on our r ltd He assured us he was sanguine that thesfe negotiations which wo are not at liberty to publish would be sue-rei-ful and terminate in a few davH. 1 a that evpnt work will begin on the road Ly Uie first of next September, and the entire line bo finished and through-cars runni ig by the las' of this year. Geu ernl Vtt, of the Mississippi and Ten nessee road, and Colonel M'Comh, of tho Mlasl-ippi Central road, were en gaged in said negotiation,, and do ing all in their power to render h m successful. President Norton, vtv makea great personal sacrifices to si-cure the success of the negotiations, primmed to write us a letter when a lical ''rcision was arrived at. The ru nxjr about the company purchasing old ir.n to lay the track to Dyershurg, like the uisny rumois started in this section, is entirely falsf . We are assured that the work and equipment of our road will be first-clais, wtien operations arecoin mrnced. All that we here write is re liable, and we uow hive fiith that the t'od iojIi and Memphis road will be com-ph-ttd this year. But our readers must not slop over with enthusiasm until we vt the promised letter from President Norton, for "there's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip." In the meantime the Slate t.nzttle, as in the post, will ad vocate the liducah and Memphis rail rosd in the interest of Dyershurg and Dyer county. THE PEACE JIOYEMCST. Ueaiplil aud TInksnnrK nn Itie Negro 1'ioblem Conciliation vs. Cease Ie rnufCDlIon, From tne Cairo (III.) Bulletin. Ie Democratic leaders in Memphis, representing the moat sagacious of the white pecp'o of the southern State', have adopted a wise policy in reference to the colored pec- They have seen the evil eltecta of strife between the i ace i, and ar now attempting to bring Hie wnite and colored elements into re lations of amity. Instead of a harsh e. ithet, they use a friendly word, and inat-ad rf blows and bullets, they use Bitd actions. This policy has already produced wonderful results. It has brought into fritndship the Confederate ami colored elements, and has retired Uie carjtbsgger from business in Ten nessee. His occupation is gone, and hereafter his presence will he hateful in the iilulf city. To Generals Forrest and Pillow, and Colonel Gillaway, of the APi'EAL, is due the credit of having broueiit about this desirable condition of afWrs, aud they did it by an exhibi Uo cf great moral courage. Only those who have lived at the bouth know howjeilous many of the white people are of pride of raca. The negro nui" bow. hat In hand, when they omc into his presence. Theeo re gard with dismay any man who be iievts that a negro fhould bo reasoned with, and the white man who addresses a crowd of negroes as "fellow ciuzens," in their opinion, degraded and uiifit for tho company of blue t (ooded Anglo-Saxons. In the face of tin' protc stations of the3e, aud in defi anct of their abuse, Generals Forrtst and jJil!osv and Colonel Gallaway at tendeu a celebration of the Fourth by negroes, appeared upon the speakers' staud, and y?eat through a ceremony of pledging friendship to trie colored people of the . -uth. " We would elevate, not drag you down," they said; "wo would elevate you to whatever station in life you are competent to fill." At Vicks burg the old system prevails. There the Democrat!' leaders have arrayed their party in hostility to the negroes; and ihe cousejuence is, neither life nor property are secure in that part of Mis sissippi. The white woman aud child go to bed at night with the fear of death at tho hands of negro murderers aud ravishers, and the negro whorneetea white man believes he set in him a mortal f e likely to kill him in cold tilood for the crime of being a d d nig ger. There the carpetbagger still has t.reat irfijence, and society is turbulent, from places like Vicksburg the rorthern KuUicii draws hi most effective political weapons, and demands that the protec tion of the law, operated by the central government, shall be thrown over the c ilored man. In this way Democrats of the Vicksburg kind the negro-hating ak d slaughtering kind become the allies of Use litdicalp. endanger local govern ment nd enable the cormorants of the R -pubUcan party to continue f aUing off n.e tiub.'ie spoils. For our part we prefer Memphis to Vicknburg. It may be mole Democratic to peisecute and murder near .es as the Vicbsburg kind of Demo crat do; but with Forrest, Pillow and (Jjllaway, we believe that ltia wi?erand more chnstiau-like to treat them like human bcings.and lead theai by persua-t-iiij, not drive them Ly blows.

County Speech of Han. I. Q. V. Lamar. Delrgnlra lo the Mate Convention ip pointed Keoolntlon Adopted Fine l'roapcctB of Almuduul Crop. From an Occasional Coireiionclent.J Kii'ley, Tippah County, July 10 Knowing that your readers are alway interested in everything that concerns the success of the Democratic party, I havo taken the liberty of t-endiug you a few items concerning the grwit political haibecue and masd-raeeting held at Falkner's ptation, on the narrow-gauge railroad, ten miles uart.) of this place on the fifteenth instant. As noticed in your paper a short timo ago, the Demo cratic executive committee of Tippah county made arrangements lo hold a mass-meeting, with barbecue and basket plcnic,at the above named place, and in order to draw together the masses, in vited the great orator and statesman, Hon. L Q, Lamar, to address tho clti zens of Tippah county aud the neighbor hood on the political questions of the day. Having resched Falkntr's depot by train, at half-past ten o'clock, I found the grove, west of the place, crowded with the solid yeomanry of the sur rounding country, all eger to hear the great Lamar. Upon close calculation it ws estimated there were present be tween two and three thousand, includ ing -women and children. Tno grove was literally packed in close prox imity to the speaker's staud, and the approaches to it thronged with bug gies, wagons, hort-es. aud mules, forcibly reminding one of the barbecues of old times, when, during a political cam paign, the masses turned out in force to hear the opposing candidates on the politics of the day. At eleven o'clock Colonel Lamar came upon the stand aud was introduced by Captain T. C. Spight, member of the legislature, in a few very appropriate re marks. After thankine Captain Spight for the compliment paid him, Colonel Lamar at once commenced to picture lo his hearers the condition of the people of the Bouth, and the great ruin and de vastation brought upon them by the Eadica'. or dominant party, especially upon the people of his own native State. He denounced the reconstruction policy of congress, which he styled a "tcrible problem," to endeavor to reconstruct an old and well-organizad, well-arranged system of government a system upon which the country was nappy and pros perousstating you might as well try to resuscita e a city swallowed by an earthquake. He said the party in power, and they alone, were responsible for what Is called the "c:lor-line," and not the people of tho south; that congress, wishing to degrade and humiliate the eouthern peo ple, was determined to take the gov ernment of the southern States out of their hands, and put it into the hands of the blacks, and for that purpose es tablished freedmen's bureaus, military governors and military depots all over the south, beiugtletermined to put the blacks in power through the assistance of carpetbagger, scalawags, etc. The colored people, and their old friends the southern people, would have (as they had always done) lived together on the best of terms after the war wps over, had they been so allowed; but this did not suit the dominant party at Washington, who were determined to leave no stone unturned to humiliate the southern peo ple, and, if possible, perpetuato the power of the Radical party; hence the establishment, by thst party, of what is called the "color-line," or tho arraying of the two races agaiuet each other. Colonel Lamai read extracts from the reports of the committee sent by con gress to New Orleans and Vicksburg, and showed clearly that these commit tee?, though mo3tly composed of Radi cals, were unable, after thorough inves tigation, to whitewash the instigators of the troubles, but were compelled to confess that the party in power was responsible for tho troubles in Lou isiana, Missirsippi and Arkansas. Col onel Lama'r next paid his respects to Governor Ames and the Mississippi leg islature, both of which he handled with out gloves. It is impossible for me to give you in a letter any idea of this great speech, which was lisiened to throughout with great attention, and frequently drew forth rouude of applause. After speck ing three hours, Colonel Lamar closed one of the most telling speeches ever listened to by tho citizens of this dis trict, and one which will in due time produce good fruit. Ho labored under great difficulty during the delivery of the speech on account of the great heat, the thermometer being in the nineties. At its conclusion diuner was announced, and the vest assemblage scattered through the woods to partake of the basket picnic aud barbecue which tho good ladies of the. surrounding country had furnished in the greatest abund ance. After dinner was over a Democratic Conservative mass-meeting of the citi zens of Tippah county was held at tho same place, of which Dr. E. M. Alex ander was chairman, aud H. S. Carter sf-cretary. At this meetiDg Colonel W. C. Falkuer, candidate for the Stato senate, delivered n powerful address in his isjtd eloquent style, in which he paid his respects to the legis lature of the State, and held them up to the scorn and contempt of all honest men. He presented his claims to the position in a forcible manner, and stated that as far as he was individually con cerned, he did not care for the office, but believed that at this time he could be of service to the people of the district, and pledged himself to do all in his power to put down Radicalism and advance the interests of his constituents Colo nel Falkner was listened to with mark ed attention, and ho left the impression on his hearers that to elect him to the State senate was to put "the right man in the right placo." After the conclusion of Colonel Falk ner's remarks, a series of resolutions were offered and adopted unanimously. These resolutions were hanJed me by Dr. Alexander, end I incloss fliein to you for publication. Colonel Lamar will bo nomiuated for congress from this district by the con vention that meets at Corinth on the twenty-second instant, and will, I think, be elected without opposition, a compli ment which he will merit, as there is no one? in the district qualified to compete against him. In conversation with Colonel Lamar, he said it was probable he would, in a Bhort time, visit Memphis, which I sincerely hope lie will do, and give our people an opportunity of hearing the greatest living statesman in Ameiica. I cannot close this letter without contrbuting my evidence, to that of many others you have received, of the fine prospcy'ln of abundant crops in this section. The rains have been pretty general, and tho early corn is made, and the cotton looks fine. In an aiea of three or four miles around this place there has been very little rain, and the crop?, especially corn, will surfer; hut north and Houth of us there has been plentiful raius, aud, in the language of an old farmer, there has not been a bet ter prospect any tlmo since the war. The farmers are in fine spinta. The wheat and oats are both harvested, aud I with a good yield. There is a splendid team mill in this place, -which is now ! running both night and day, and farm ers are hauliug their wheat over twenty miles in some in&tauocs to have it made j into Hour. As an evidence of tho oat j crop, I will state that I met this morn- ing a farmer oJ'r ring for sale to a rner- j chant three hundred bushels of oats. Be- j sldsy the crops I have meutionnj there is vl k n a larae amount of sorghum cane, which wili very noon be converted into molas-es, so that the farmers, if they raise their meat, will have but littlo to purchwe from home for their supporL The merchants of this place expect if the good prospects of the cotton crop are realized to ship ten thousand bales of i cotton the coming season. So much for Tippah county and the little narrow ! gauge railroad, and in this connection I cannot but speak in the highest manner of this ro3d and its excellent officer, Mr. Robeson, than whom a more gentle manly and attentive officer never run a road. He is very popular with all, and to him must be attributed th great suc cess of the road. His arrangements for carrying such vast numbers to the bar becue were splendid, and not a single accident of any kind occurred to mar the pleasure and good feeling that exist ed. A ball at the courthouse in Ripley closed the day, which will be always re membered as one of the most agreeable spent in North Mississippi. MMOCItATIC-CONSERVATIVK JIAS5 MEEnSO IN TIPPAH COUNTY. At a Democratic-Conservative mass meeting f the people of Tippah county, at Falkner station, on the fifteenth of July, the following proceedings were hau: On motion, Dr. E. M. Alexander was called to the chair, and H. S. Carter ap pointed secretary. The chairman stated the object of the meeting to be the ap pointment of delegates to the State con vention at Jackson, on the third of Au gust next, and to the congressional con vention of the first district of Mississippi at Corinth, on the twenty-second instant. Thereupon a committee was appointed to select delegates to said conventions, which committea made the following re port: State Convention Thos. Spight, W. C. Falkner, F. A. Wolf, W. A. Boyd an'l C. U. Slover. Congressional Convention H. S. Car ter, J. W. T. Falkner, J. J. Guy ton, C. C. Park and J. W. Norton. The following resolutions, indorsing the Hon. L Q, C. Lamar, were unani mously adopted: Iicolved, by the Democracy of Tippah county, in mass-meeting assembled, That in the person of our gifted repre sentative in the last national congress, Hon. L. Q. C. Lamar, we recognize the chivalrous gentleman, the far-seeing statesman, the unselfish patriot, whose name and fame fill a brilliant page in tho history of the nation. Resolved, That by his watchful guar dianship of the interests of the south, by his manly and eloquent defense of her people, and by his dignified, but earnest and unceasing efforts to reunite in brotherly love the people of tho two sectioua of this Union, he has endeared himself to every lover of justice and good government, and to every true friend of national prosperity, whether his home he in the north or in the south. Resolved, That his course in the last congress meets our unqualified approba tion, as an earnest of which, our dele gates to the congressional nominating convention, which will m?et in Coriuth on the twenty-second instant, be, aud they are hereby, instructed to cast the vote of this county, first, last and all the time, to return him to a seat which he has filled with such distinguished ability, and from which he has shed lustre upon the name of the State of Mississippi. Upon motion it was ordered that the above proceedings be published in the Ripley Advertiser, the Jackson Clarion, and the Memphis Appeal. Upcn motion the mass-meeting then adjourned. E. M.

Prof. Marsh pronounces the attempted ex planation published yesterday by Com missioner Smith, in regard to affairs at Red-Cloud agency, a characteristic trick of the Indian bureau. Tho old repoit cited by the commissioner is the ouly one of a large number on file in the in terior department that was favorable, and it is now well known that the spe cial agents who made it, owing mainly to the short time they were at the agen cy, were mistaken on several points, nnd some at least of the gentlemen have since informed the department to this effect. Tho report refers to a different f et f transactions from those observed by Prof. Marah, and his investigations had no connection whatever with thce made by this commission or any other. To attempt to meet his evidence by quoting an old report is entirely avert ing the real issue and misleading the public. The charges Prof. Marsh has made are di.viuct aud specific, and sup ported by independent testimony. Un til tilths charges, which affect the de partment as well as Agent Saville, are disposed of, the professor thinks a gen eral denial by the commissioner will avail but little. TUB ALLEGED FRAUDS TO I5E INVESTI GATED. New York, July 19.

The m -etiug was strictly private, and was organized by electing Governor Fletcher chairman. Pi of.

Prof. Marsh presented nK charges in pamphlet form, which have already been printed. The investigation will take place at Red Cloud agency.

The Uemocrntle Tarty In Ohio Dlviditl on tue Flnncrltl (tnmilsn-A Sero Lccal Itnue, Etc. Bamimore. July 19. Senator Thur man. of Ohio, who lias been for several days the guest of Senator Davis, of West Viretnia. is at the JLeer rare notei, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. Yes tcidiy a reporter of the Baltimore Ga zelle interviewed Senator Thurman in regard to tbe financial plank of the Columbus, Ohio, platform. Judge Thurman talked quite freely on the situation in Ohio and his own relations to it, which he thought had been mis understood. In reply to inquiries, he said: "The Democratic party in Ohio is divided on the currency question. The financial opinions contained in the Co lumbua platform should only be regarded as an expression ol local opinion, ana nothing could be more unjust than to attempt to charge, on this account, that the Democratic party, as a national organization, is animated by a spirit of lunation. At all times or commercial depression the cry of 'more money' is raised. The present period being no ex ception, inflationists are to be found in both political parties, and it is very un becoming Republican journals to de nounce Democracy as an inflation party while so prominent a Republican as Judge Kelly i3 haranguing the iron workers of Ohio in favor of his three-sixty-five bond scheme and greenback heresies." He also referred to other Republican lead er?, who hare been first and fore most in defense of greenbacks as the best currency the world ever saw. Touching the desire for Republican s jc cess in the present Oni canvass in the interest of Democratic principles, Sena tor Thurman si'd that no man who comprehends the political situation, and hopf s for the sviccess of thu Democratic party at the next presidential election, should desire a Republican victory in Ohio in the f johsh belief that such a re sult will contiibute to a Republican de feat in 1S76. Nothing could be more er roneous. A Democratic defeat in the approaching State election is simply suicidal. It is true that serious errors were inserted in the platform. I did my best to avert threatened evil, but be cause others disagreed with me, I see no reason why I should holster up the Re publican party. If errors have been committed in Ohio, they can be cor rected. They need not be the excusjfor greater ones. The Republican party in Ohio is also divided on the currency question. Tno financial plank in tieir platform can be construed to meau hard or soft money, and prominent Ohio Republican congressmen are in favor of more green backs. Replying to the charge that he evinced a lack of moral courage for not denouncing the inflation plank of the Columbus platform, ti the ratification meeting, he said that the place and time was not opportune. It is a great injustice to cndcr-in one for opinions never uttered. I have said or done nothing to warrant the charges brought against me. My record in the senate is before the country, and on that record I yet stann. I am to make my first speech of the campaign at Mansfield, Ohio, July31st, and shall then announce my disagreement with the financial pro visions of tho platform, and throughout the campaign I shall say nothing to dis credit the conviction of a lifetime.

Latcat Soatb American Date & Priest In Halvador Preaching Violent Sermon AEalnat tbe State Antborltlea. FearTal Conflict and Ilarbarona Frc ceedlncs at Nan Mlcnel Indigna tion AgalONt the Frleata, Ktc. Panama, July S. Advices from Sal vador state that a dreadful riot took place at San Miguel, a town of forty thousand inhabitants, in the southern part of the republic. A great deal of discontent has been excited against the government by its refusal to allow a pastoral of the bishop of Salvador, written in hostility to the laws, to be read in churches. Therp had also been consider able hostile feeling among the lower classes owing to some regulations re quiring dealers to use a new market place. While matters were in this con dition, a priest named Palacioa, preach ed a violent sermon against the constitu ted authorities on Suuday,he twentieth ultimo. That evening the mob arose, attacked the cabilas and liberated some two hundred prisoners. They thou pro ceeded to assault the small garrison, and took the cuartel, killed Generals Castro and Espinoza; cut the former to pieces and threw the pieces at each other; split tho skull of General Castro and threw him over a wall, where he was picked up by his mother, and died in three days. The garrison were nearly all assassinated, and many prominent citi zens killed. After this tee fanatic mob set fire to some sixteen houses with kero sene. Before the town' was entirely destroyed, it fortunately happened that the British ship Fantome was at LaUnion, when shelanded her marines, which allowed thegarr'son there, united with some of the troops from Amapalla, in Honduras, to march to the relief of San Miguel and put down the mob. The Curate Palacios at last accounts was ar rested with others that had participated in the outbreak and a good many of the inferior rioters had been shot by order of President Gonzales, who had arrived with troops. With tho houses destroyed and pillaged, the damage is estimated at one million dollars,and commercial fail ures are looked for in conseejuence The country has been declared iu it state of siege, and President Gonzales is taking measures to establish order and bring the perpetrators of this disgraceful out break to punishment. The Diaro, the oilicial organ of the State, and all pub lic prints abound iii indignation against the priests, who were Ihe instigators of this savage and sanguinary affair; the Capelutar "Vicar, for the ettict published by his order, and Jose Manuel palacios ex-canorigo of the cathedral of San Salvador. The municipality of this city actved to have said Palacios re moved, but the curia ecclesiastia paid no attention to the petition. He was continually exciting hatred between the lower and well-to-do classes, and there suit has been as described. One serious and incredible discovery was made after the murderous affair was over, and that was that on the persons of some of the dead rebels ivere found passports, which read when translated : "Pe'or, open to the bearc- the beauti ful gates of heaven, who has died for re ligion, leo, "Bishop of San Salvador," and sealed with tbe sea! of the bishopric of San Salvador. jUAKIUEO.
