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

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

,.a.ae to remedy. 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-!

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

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.

Water Valley Courier: Two funerals

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

Aberdeen Examiner: We don't like

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

Holly Springs Reporter: The Aber

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

corn-fields are grassy and the corn too
thick two drawbacks that will not fail

Charles Sanders, aged fourteen, was
recently drowned in the Otuckalopa.
The Water Valley Central, in speaking
of the accident.says: It seems that Mas

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

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

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

agent or speculator for the porposa of

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
