TElE MEMPHIS DAILY A? PEAL--WED NES I ) A Y , JULY 31, 1875.
SEHPIHS APPEAL YEDEsDaY, : JULY 21, 1875. rZKX03ALiriKS IN FOL1TIIH. An old citizen of Memphis, nlwaya anxious to have good men elected to ofllce, but studiously refusing the use of hln name as a candidate or to take any lutertst in the nomination and election of candidates, addreesea us the following communication: Editors Appkal You conUnually complain that good citlzeDS do not take more Interest in selecting offlce-holdera or become candidates themselves. Do you not know that the prew is, to rome extent, ieeponwible for thlsV Why a good many citizens who are in every way qualified to. hold ofllce avoid poli tics and will not permit their names to be used in connection therewith, is very readily explained by the bitter crimina tion and rporiminationa which obtain before aud after elections, f ew un n-ioi, m hra tJipir rhamctera blackened fnrthk of holdine. for a little while, an ofllce. Observant r0P,e Know uo only does a political can vs drag to light all that is justly available !u ai'a reconJ, but inai mauere ui "u 'J""; arc jftenso distorted and misreprt-sente i as to appear of Jamning confluence, ferrous who rcakea trade of iohtIc3 do not mind these things. Th"ir mora' j rtifiriu i vpritatle buckler o' brass. ; Ti.i. cro nniotr at innuecdoPd and even ot h.t ia nrnved. But tliero are u-.irthw Twrsn:.s who are no: lnpensiDio calumny.anu wno vjriuaujr w iuimn. J ' . . . i ii .:-...!-.... urn all active particlpatioc in politic rather than cxpoee themselves to mis. riuctruction and violent abuse, J : is to i -. feared that every year the number f tneee pople will increase, and that J. t content with resolutely declining i.ihold ofllce, they will even stay away from the polli altogether. Such views as these are unworthy a man who has successfully fought the battle of life. They are effeminate and unworthy of vigorous manhood. They remind us of the sentimentality of the dainty girl who scribbles on perfumed note-paper. There is a9 much contact by the business man with the world as there ii by the politician who becomes a candidate or interests himself In the nomination and election of good men fo ofllce. Such sensitiveness, if felt by everybody, would prevent mea joining the army from a lear ol getting hurt or coming In contact with common, rough people. Men cannot perform their du ties in life without being occasionally jostled. Our correspondent does Injus tice to the press. He is evidently one of that class of modest, sensitive plants, who regard the legitimate criticism of a newspaper as defamation. Were he a candidate, and the press should antago nise his views,he would no doubt whine, in the language of his communication, about "calumny" and his "character blackened" by "violent abuse." Every man worthy of office defies criticism and abuse. Voting in tniB coun try is not so much a privil ege as a duty. The citlxen who falls to go to the polle, or hold oiHce when his services are demanded, on cowardly pleas, is guilty of criminal de linquency. The good citizen, as a duty, rushes into battle, and the same reason should impel his action in elections. Men who can chaffer and higgle with a hundred men during the day in their business transactions, need have no fear to give ono day to securing the election of good men to office. If everybody were as refined in their feelings as this correspondent seems to be, thieves and plunderers would rule and ruin the peo ple. The only practical method of im proving society, and purifying ita politi cal life, is through the earnest personal efforts of ail Its most respectable mem bers, men who will not countenance dis honesty or corruption In the name of any party whatsoever. When a people are too poor in honorable manhood to produce leaders whose personal qualities command universal respect, it will be time enough to talk about that dignity aud sensitiveness which drives into ob scurity the chicken-hearted cravens who have such a horror for what they call calumny and abuse. Wc hava universal suffrage in America, but many of ur best citizsns never votf, and many others give themseive3 'io concern upon the subject and vote for met of whom they know nothing, and f.bout whom they care Us", only xrateit with the fact that the txket uiey voie lor lejueteuia iuhi yan "u its avowed policy.

Kings, iranu3, tor rjpt courts, lobby-legislation, petty office? turned into premium? for petty rascalities these, and such like things, are the evils to which all good citizens are necessarily subjected by reason of their neglect to public aflairs. There are principles, the property of no single age or nation, which alone can furnish a true foundation for a sound political fabric. Whenever these principles are dishonored, the commonwealth is wronged, and for the shame of these things we cannot bold entirely blame less those who shun politics. hOUKD TALK FBOH A. BA.DICAL. The carpetbagger is running the gaunt let of kicks and curtes. The colored IeopIe have deserted him, and every day we hear of some decent Republican representing the carpetbagger as the Uiad of all our southern woes. We see by the Cincinnati Enquirer thatSenator Robertson, of South Carolina, during a recent visit to Washington City, strongly opposed the carpetbag element that had ruled South Carolina. He acknowledges that the picture given by the northern papers has been none too highly colored. Upon this subject, he said: "Nearly all that outsiders know about dissension, fraud and corruption is true, and if it appears bad to those who know so little, how must it look to us, who are behind the scenes and striving for a good gov ernment. I tell you, sir, we must get rid of the carpetbag influence. It is baneful, it is vicious, and there can be no true reform until it ia driven out. I think Governor Chamberlain is not to be deterred by the plea of a split in hia own party. The colored voter has learn ed to estimate the true value of the car petbagger, and he cannot be used as a mere political machine in the futuro as he has been in the past Give us a good government, and they are the best laborers wo can have; and when we do get such a government they will, like all other laboring classee, vote general ly with their employers, and whether these belong to one or other of the polit ical parties into which the State may be divided. Being property.holders and tax-payers, a good government, econom ically administered, is as important to the one as the nther.,: This language last year, about the time the outrage crop was being gathered, would have marked the disloyal nit.! . In speaking of Co"emor Chamberlain, who cond.ict ii Jie reform movemtnt in Sonth Caro lina, the senator gives the following opinion of him : "Governor Chamber lain is an honest man. He is in earn est, and will be euprortea by nearly all the men of talent and character in the party. Reform is a political necessity. Good government is all thttt is n quired to secure profjwrity, and I know he has the sympathy and will secure the support of the executive in Wash ington. Let us get rid of the oarpettieg inlluence that lias hitherto controlled the colored voters, and the desired re form will come Inevitably. I always told the leading Republicans in Wash ington that I knew the South Carolina people better than any carpetbagger, and that all they wanted was a good government. They had been beaten, reduced to poverty, and we must give them time: but ir a good government was given them it would recure the hearty support of the tax-payers an-! the old lender In thr-.t Htato whether government was Repnblic&r or 1 b ' Democralic. Tat support Tin BUT'Port i io Governor Chamberlain ly the C-onMrva-ti ves susUins me in this opinio. I am glad y. it for it gives me etridglh ir vrssnington." rilK AW AKKSED MOUTH. One of the xatt i-ropitous ei'iPol the tim-? is that the eo-itb Mvtu:en'"-1 I a s a iei se or ner n&iei3i int.iniH. js,v- : e snntdern ata:e i3 takinz Ibe proper stena to secure enrgrtcm. Tha people of Sebastian county, Arnansas, . ave commenced the ork in the right vav. In tuat couity rt i immigration tocieiv has been organized, whih has published an invitation to the vorld, ,'rm '.."uich we extract the following: It will boeeen from this organization that the people of Sebastian are awake, and mean to open their doors, their barns, and their granaries to all who may come among them seeking homes, no matter whether they come from the north, the south, the east or the west, and that a welcome awaits them. We have lands for all, lands rich in mineral wealth, as productive as any in the world. We have a splendid prospect for good crops, and if at all favored by Providence, we will be enabled to say to all: Come, we have enough and to spare, and will cheerfully divide with you and make you comfortable until you can make a crop of your own. We agree with the Washington Cliron icle in the opinion that if this generous offer was extended to the citizens of oth er sections of the country,by every coun ty in the southern States, but a few years would elapse before this section would reap the benefits of such action. Open the whole south cheerfully to northern men; encourage them to bring with them their free institutions; treat them kindly when they arrive, and our section will receive an influx of population that will give it an Impetus in growth and busi ness which it has never known. This new accession would not only inspire others with itsown energy and pluck, but it would open up new industries, develop unknown avenues of trade, build facto ries, and convert the idle and waste lands into fields of glowing produce. Success, we eay with all our hearts, to the example set by the people of Sebas tian county, Arkansas, and msy it bring them both peace and prosperity. This Is the way to regenerate the south to restore fraternal feeling between the dif ferent sections. N A VINO WHEATBIKIW. A few days since there appeared an article in the Appeal urging our farm ers to save their wheat straw, because it is good for provender duriug winter, it will do finely for mulching, and can be used in various ways known to practi cal, experienced farmers. Properly put up, it will furnish protection for cattle and sheep during the severe winter weather, and when nothing else can bo donowith it, there is nothing better for manuring and enriching the land. The New York Commercial Bulletin pub lishes our article, and says; 'The in quiry we wish to make ia this: What have the southern farmers been accue tomed to do with their wheat btraw? It would iieem that they neith'"- fed it m r made manure o' it rum the above. Now if this custom hs.T been general In tho ecith. 13 it rr'jch u be toudered that planters bx e always beeii iu dubt, if not actually poc:" Or that thsr'r land has boeu exharstcJ by tHKjr with out fertilizing from ye3r s.ftcr j ear?

AnJ Jf JJjgjj. uardflljips .yf tlie p3at (gjj I years shall teach them to utilize all their resources lnstead-ci oue.it will In time be a profitable investment. There w no better sign of prosperity in the south than this disposition to economize and utilize. And when we find papers liko the Appeal urging such reform in farm management, it is a hopeful indication that the public are awakening to the truth of the suggestions and the need of such reforms." UKtKD C03CILIAT0IIY IIIHIC. It will be seen from another column that the colored population will hold a grand conciliatory picnic at the Exposi tion building to-morrow, commencing at two o'clock. We hail this as an other favorable sign of that peace which la surely coming between the white arid colored people of the south. We believe both races are Interested in the great work of reconciliation, and shall encour age it on every occasion. The Union ia restored, and the white people of tho north and pouth have buried all the mad passions born in war, and so soon as the whites and blacks of the outh cease their antagonism, then national inter ests will be promoted. Tho good men of all sections, rtc-d tu.d nationalities are sick of sectionai agitation, &ick of strife, sick of seeing the substantial in terests of the country sacrificed to the venal ambition of desperate demagogues, and they are determined to have that peace and reconciliation which thefreed men are doing so much to secure. We hope the conciliatory picnic to-inorrow will be productive of much good. SPEAKma of the south, the Boston Foet says that a fire could not clean out a doomed territory more completely than the carpetbag fraternity, chartered and protected from Washington, devoured the remnant of substance which was the south'a only reliance in a struggle for re covery. But it is eveiy thing that labor has at last opened its eyes to the truth, and comprehends the vital pointa of the situation. When the blacks cuflVr, then they are able to tea that it ia because tho whites have suffered before them, and they reason very clearly from the effect to the cause. When they finally under stand that whole States have been im poverished, whose productive resources once seemed limitless, they are sHo to conceive that it was accomplished by influences from without, that, hoveve: commendwl to U-eir sppprobitn i, hav proved thernhoives treach.-ro'u, tledtruet lve and cruel.

Holly Springs Reporter: The Democratic-Conservative voters of Marshall shouhl at an early day hold primary meetings in each precinct in the county, for the purpose of appointing delegates to the county convention, to be held in this city on the thirty-first day of July. Vicksburg Herald: Wash. Walton whispers in the ear of Henry Hunt his advice about bond-approving. Old cor rupt defuncto has seen his glory sudden ly fade, never to come back again, and he should be content to quietly sink into that obscure oblivion to which he be longs. Handsboro Democrat: The Democ racy of Copiah county met in conven tion and nominated a strong ticket of all white men, for members of the legisla ture and county offices, down to consta ble. The Democratic party is aroused in Copiah, and wo may hope to see it triumphant. Water Valley Courier: Two funerals at the same time and from the same church is certainly a very unusual oc currence, and perhaps was never before witnessed in this place. Mr. Huga M. Kirkland and Charlie Saunders were buried on Sunday evening last both at the same time. Hernando Press and Times: The chintz bug, together with the lack of a sufficient quantity of rain, tho corn crop on all sides of Hernando, for miles, has been cut off to a heavy extent. In fact, some farmers will hardly make respect able nubbins, rain or no rain. The cot ton is standing the drouth well. Aberdeen Examiner: We don't like to intrude, and hope that we will not be regarded as officious, when we suggest to the managers of the Mobile and Ohio railroad that they are possibly guilty of a great oversight in giving the energy and capital they devoto to the cause of immigration .to trans-Atlantic work. Holly Springs Reporter: The Aber deen Examiner brings forward the name of Mississippi's most distin guished jaurnalist and the south'a most devoted and valued patriot, Colonel W. H., M'Cardle, editor of tho Vicksburg Herald, as a suitable man to represent Mississippi in the United States Benate. Jackson Pilot: "Tho Ohio Republi cans, with their Hay(s) fever and raw Democratic whisky.have already crazed the editors of fie Memphis Appeal." Whisky could never iDjure the Pilot, but Democracy will, especially the pure Bourbon, which is good enough to kill the most espcctole of MississiDpi Radicals.

Holly Springs Reporter: The long looked for rains have fallen at last in all parts of the county, and refreshed veg etation wonderfully. After a drouth of six weeks the cropa must have suffered serious damage, which cannot be re moved altogether by the rains that have no'v so much revived them. The farm ers have clean cotton-fields, but the corn-fields are grassy and the corn too thick two drawbacks that will not fail to decrt U3e the yield in any kind of a Heason. Charles Sanders, aged fourteen, was recently drowned in the Otuckalopa. The Water Valley Central, in speaking of the accident.says: It seems that Mas ter Sanders, with three other boys, were in a boat, and while passing under a tree they were startled by the falling of a venomous snake into the boat. Losing all presence of mind the boys simulta neously plunged iuto the stream to es cape the fangs of the snake, and Master Sanders, being a cripple, sank to rise no more alive. Vicksburg Herald, 17th: As announc ed in our local columns this morning, Mr. Thomas C. Bedford, as chief deputy for Peter Crosby, yesterday assumed charge of the office, aud from this time fjrward will discharge the arduous and responsible duties of sheriff of Warren county. Mr. Bedford has made aud pre sented to tho board of supervisors a sol vent and satisfactory bond for Crosby, as sheriff, and we are informed that he will proceed at once to make an unques tioned bond as tax-collector. Vicksburg Herald: A dispatch was received here yesterday from James Branch, at Belleville, Illinois, asking what reward had been efftjred for West moreland, who killed Thoa. Cox. Young Mr. Cox was a constable here in the spring of lbG9, and while attempting to arrest a negro named George Westmore land, upon a warrant from Justice Loeweuberg, was shot and killed. Westmoreland made bis escape, and the dispatch would indicate hia where abouts ia at least known. A consider able reward was offered Tor his appre hension, but the exact amount we do not now ki.ow. Bynum Creeh grango, of Panola couuty, publishes the following: "The members having been blessed with an abundant wheat crop this year, and our farms being now infested with the chintz bug, which in all probability will be come more destructive another season; and reliable information having been received by the grange that agents and speculators wre in the country buying 'ip the wheat, brother R. Fowlei offered tbe following rfb"!ution, which was unanimously sd( pttd: 'Itesolvcd, Ti.it the menibe-B of p c grange be rectci unuded noi lo sell any wheat to an agent or speculator for the porposa of being shipped outside of tha State.' " Hon. L. Brasher, aged eighty-eight, died a few days ago at nla home in Cal houn county. He removed from his native State (Kentucky) to Alabama at an early age, and represented Fayette county in the legislature. He removed to Chickasaw county in this Stale, and in 1852 Calhoun county was cut off of Chickasaw, Yalobusha and Lafayette. This left Colonel Brasher in Calhouu counly. He assisted in organizing the county and served on the board of police for several years, and in the fall of 1S57 he was elected to the State senate from the district composed of Calhoun and Yalobusha. Aberdeen Examiner: That compound extract of legal acumen, Attorney-General George E. Harris, finding his co conspirators in tho interest of Radfcal rule halting between Scylla and Cha rybdis, fearing to call an extra session of the legislature to patch up the holealeft in the registration act on account of the damaging effect upon the party that the expenditure involved will produce, and believing that to goin to the canvass un der that law w. uld result in the utter annihi'ation of the p.-.rty, has, with the dash of a young A'erauder, cut the gor diau i'not ' y pronoun, ing the act of March o, 1ST , null ami void.
