I'M DAY, : : FEBRUARY 18, 187C.
The devil got slck.the devil a monk won'd be ;
The devil got well, the devil a monk was je.
We are not sick, therefore, we no
longer live in dread of epidemics.
Lulled to a seme of Becurily because we
have not had small-por, cholera or yellow-lever
to work their will since the
fearful visitations of 1S73, a few of our
citizsnp, whoso intelligence should
lift them absve such obtujeneaa, ignor
ance or fatuity, are disposed not merely
to cavil and find fault with the board of
health for the energy with which that
body is pro3cuting itsdutle3, but to offer
obstructions and delays, and so retard
or wholly defeat the ends for which the
board was established. This is wrong in
spirit as it is in fac. It ia narrowing
the interest and purposes of the munici
pality to individual whim and
caprice. Nay, it is worss it is defy
ing the law and Batting au
example for the viciously inclined that
they will not be slow to follow. The
board of health, composed of gentlemen
of experience, proceed upon the plan
tba. an ounce of prevention is better
than a pound of cure, and is not attend
ed with lbs risks of the caring process.
They believe in removing tho filth and
offal which accumulates so fast as al
most to defy dally efforts to dispose of,
and they have given itrict and stringent
orders to.that effect, setting, themselves,
a good example by cleansing the streets
and alleyp. But, as we have said, there
are those who deny their power to effect
this good purpose beyond the limits of
the highways. These worthi&i even go
so fir as to say that the health officer can
not only not invade their cellars and
back yard?, but that he cannot order ob
structions from the sidewalkp, and they
propose to become veritable obstruction
ists and invoko tus aid of the
court, thetechnica'hies of law and the
power of offlcia's to sustain them.
"Withoutmore mmjpausing to condemn,
in unstinted measure, conduct ao selfish
and so utterly at variauce with the duty
that one citizen owes to anothe-, neither
to Infringe upon public rights nor set
himself up in opposition to the ganeral
weal, we quote, for the especial banefit of
this class, the following sections of the
ordinance creating the board of health,
an ordinance drawn up with care, and
which, it will be seen, confors upon the
health oflicar nnd his coadjutors, the
authority and power to enforce every
regulation, which, in their judgment,
may be necessary to maintain the public
Be :lion 2. That, in order to preserve
the health of this city, the board of
health is hereby Invested with full power
and authority to mike any and all rule?,
regulations and orders uecessaiy to pre
serve the beilth of the city, and to sup
press aad check the progress of diaeesej
of all kinds; and, to enable them to
execute and carry out fully the provi
sions of this sectioo, the chairman, or
any member of said board in the ab
sence of the chairman, shall have full
power and authority to order and direct
the chief of police, and the police force
of the city, to remove any nuisance, or
execute any order of the board of health,
within the limits of the city, and all
members of the police force are hereby
required to obey Huch orders, and a fail
ure to obey sucn orders shall be deemed
a misdemeanor, and punished as other
misdemeanors, and to require all under
taken rliI other persuns to furnish Mich
information at such time and in such
form 33 the board of health may require,
atd the failure on the part of any under
taker or other person to comply with
such order ehall subject the offender to a
fine of fifty dollars for each offense.
Section 3. That any jerson who shall
violate any rule or regulation made by
the board of health for the prevention or
suppression of disease, or shall refino or
neglect to obey such rules or regulations,
shall be deemed guilty of a misdemean
or, and upon bonvictlon before the re
corder shall ba fined in a sum not to ex
ceed fifty dollars.
This covers the whole ground raised
by those who object to the energetic
conduct of the board ot health. But for
fear they may be as ignorant in regaid
to the ordinances of tho city touching
nuisances and misdemeanors ai they
resm or pretend to ba in regard to the
scops of the powers of the board of
health, we also quote for their benefit
section C, of article 4, of the omittances,
Bridgets Digest, 1S73, as follows, show
ing that eidewalks are not to be ob
structed, and that merchants, except
when receiving or forwarding goods,
have no right to trench upon and use
the public streets and alleys for business
purposes that if they have more goods
thau their etores or warehouses will con
tain they should rent others. Here it is :
C. To ol struct the streets or sidewalks
with boxes, bane's, or any other thing,
except when receiving or forwarding
goodB, warea or merchandise, and the a
only for a reasonable timp, and except
icg cotton bale?, which may be so placed
as no; to obstruct the flow of water in
tto gutters, and not to Interfere with the
nafsway to or from any resldeuce or
business bouse, and not to occupy more
than eight feel of front from the outside
of the pavement or pasway, and not to
tc placed on any pavement or fcotway,
or obstruct any crossing or footway; pro
vided, that if any peison feels aggrieved
by thn placing of such cotton on the
streets as aforesaid, and shall call upon
any policeman to notify tho owner to re
move the same, and if such cotton is not
it moved within twenty-f jur hours after
euoti notice, tneii tie owner thereof
shall be sur.ject to the penalties lor ob
t trading etreets.
We trust it will not be necessary to say
any more upon this mbjict. The board
of hsalib. has not only the law, but pub
113 orir'on on itssidc. With the niern
oiy before them of the three thousand
or more who in 1&7.1 rod the penalty t f
ignorance with lhtir livee, the people of
Memphis are determined, at whatever
c', to maintain the good health of tbe
c ty. They will take no riks, and hod
I ij the boenl cf health to a rigid ac
C'untab:iity and responsibil.ty, are pre
pired to second every effort that body
may make within the law to save trem
from a lecurrence of tLe dreadful scenes
of 18"3. The board may go on, then, in
tas performancs cf Its duty and the en
forcement of its rules and regulations.
The people are at its back, and with
luch backing it cannot fail, no matter
who opposfs I.
THE JACItSOX COOXTY 3IEETISO.
The Afpzal of Tu jf day last published,
with editorial indorsement, the prc
cjedings of a Democratic meeting held
a. Gainestorr, Jackson county, Tennes
sar. The resolutions have attracted
much attention, partly on account of
their Boundncsj, and part'y because the
mte'.ing inaugurated tho State and
national elections for November next.
The resolutions cf this, the firtt Demo
crat'o me ting in Tennessee, have the
clear iingof pure Democratic gold, and
as a matter of course, tho mischief
makers and chronic haters of De
mocracy, are busy in decoancing them.
To begin well is one of tho main ele
ments of success in every important er
t9rprise. Governed by this considera
tion, the firm and reliable Democials of
Jackson county have initiated the
Stato and Presidential campaign in an
earnest, harmonious and vigorous man
ner. We have no war to make with
tbe Democracy of Jackson county bo
cause they oppose repudiation ard inBlst
on preserving the honor of Uie State by
paying Ita just indebtedness The can
vass for the legislature, which Is about to
ba opened all over tho State, should not
be disturbed by any question es to the
payment or non-payment of the State
debt. The Appeal loDg ago, in early
anticipation of this canvas, urged that
a discussion of this question ba re
pressed, if possible, and that the pep'e
be satisfied with what tho State is
now doing in ro'e once to the debt, and
trust to the good judgment of the legis
lature with whatever additional lights it
may have to guide it twelve months
from now. The substantial people of
Tennetsse are not only not prepared for
repudiation, but they are not prepared
for the election of men, or the adoption
of measures looking in the direction of
repudiation. Unfortunately for the peo
p'e of the southern States, the word re
pudiation bids fair to be a prominent one
in the politicsl vocabulary on account of
the rule of Radicalism. IJational, btate,
county, town and city debts have ac
crmulated to such an extent under
profl'gate and corrupt men cs ti make
heavy taxation inevitable; and to pre
vent the annihilation of industries, and
the confiscation of property, the word
repudiation has lost much of its terrors.
But all honest men will condemn the re
pudiation of a just and legal State debt,
Just as they would the action of the pri
vate citizen'who would refuse to pay tfce
money which ho borrowed from his
neighbor ;by importunities to save him
from pecuniary ruin. It Is true that taxes
are high in Tennessee, and that
the Stato is not meeting tho
fall interest on her debt, but
it Is also true that the State is paying to
her creditors as much as they can reason
ably expect her to p3y iu her impover
ishment; that her prospects are bright
ning, and that, with the development
of Jier resources, she will be f s able, i3
she is willing, to make her obligations as
good in tho eyes of tho world as thoy
have ever been. It is the true policy ol
tho Democracy of Tennessee to tke no
position that can bo tortured into re
pudiation; to declare that the State will
pay & fast as she is able; that.af ter meet
ing the expanses of an economical gov
ernment, Ehe i3 williDg to hand over
to her creditors all that Is left, with a
promise to do better so soon as the
prosperity of the pjople will justify it.
Tennessee has slumbering riches, ; un
opened sourcss of wealth and strength,
which, when 'jbrought into full utility,
will make her debf, which is now a
heavy burden, so light that ehe will no
longer regard it as a serious hindrance
to her progrts'. By a recurrence to the
resolutions, it will be seen that the
Democrats of Jackson county are
not ashamed to be called Democrats,
and do not propose to coat the'a: party
name with Conservative and Liberal
sugar. They call themselves simply
Democrats, and ally themselves with
the national Democracy, which repudi
ates the bob which the chronic haters of
Dsmocracy would tie on to the Demo
cratic kite. Wo tru3t every county in
Tennessee will follow this example.
The true and reliable Democrats of the
State want no appendage to their party
name. The south has fought- Radical
ism under half a dozen names, and ex
perience, invariable defeat, has demon
strated that the name Democrat has no
additional strength by compounding it
with another name. While we are ready
to receive assistance from men who call
themselves Liberals, Conservatives or
Reformers, and welcome them as patri
ots and worthy allies fighting under
their own flags, Democrats can no longer
fight under any banner but that of the
Democratic party. As we have often
said, and say in our prospectus published
in another column, there are but two
national parties, the one Republican and
the other Democratic, and we must
stand with one or the other. To call
ourselvis the Dsmocratic-ConBervalive
party ssema to imply that there is a
Deaio:ratic-RadIcal party to which the
Darnocratlc CoLssrvative patty is op
posed on account of its extreme views.
Wd need no such distinctions. Demo
crats are determined that men who bate
the name of Democrat shall no longer
Interpolate upon the name they love an
addendum they do not want. Mahomet
must come to the mountain.
Oklahoma nnd the Cherokccs.
New York llerald.j
Washington, February 14. Not
withstanding the uigent recommenda
tions of the white people for the organi
zation of the Territory of Oklahoma, the
Cberokees themselves are strongly op
posed to such legislation. In a recent
speech of Colonel W. P. Adair, one of
the Cnerokes delegates, before the house
committee on territories, he said there
were quie'iy located in the Indian Ter
ritory Detween thirty and forty different
nations and tribes of Indians, aggrega
ting a powerful and prosperous popula
tion of about eighty thousand souls, and
owning a country containing forty -four
million one hundred and fifty-fcur thou
sand two hundred and forty acres that
they have redeemed from the wilder
ness. The question was Important to
tbe Indlane, because it involved their
national inteiesls and general prosperity
as well as their very existence, and
therefore itshould be delicately consider
ed by tbe government, because it involv
ed the honor and the public faith of the
government, pledged in th most sacred
manner, and affecting the Indiau policy
cf tbe government. In pursuance of
tresty ftir-ulaticns made over six years
ago, the executive department and the
IodianseHtobli'ludthe "Genersl Indian
fjouncil," or congress and it has ever
f-Iuco been indorsed by congress in mak
ing the necessary aj pr priations to pay
its e xpens&s, so that the qust tion of ter
ri or aliz'iig the Indian ccut-try is set
tled by congress, by the executive, and
by tho Indianp, and .'s not now properly
an open question. It now only remained
for congrefs to so amend the Indian in
tercourse acts as to make them effective,
and to estatlwh United S aef courts in
our Indian country for the execution of
these acta, so that tbe nations and tribes
and their laws aril rights are not inter
fered with. Tills constant agitation of
a question that Is settled in gocd faith
has forced the Indian natioEf, at gret
expense, to rend their delegUc3 here
to vindicate their rights, and these del
egates, Colonel Adair caid, arse andered
and abufel by Territorial agitators for
dolus a plain duty they owe to their
people. Colonel Adair discussed at
length the propositions first, that con
gress is not authorized by law to legis
late a Territorial government over the
Indiau country or to disturb the Indian
governments and tho titles they hold In
that country to their lands without the
consent of the Indiana; and, second,
such legislation is not necessary in view
of the condition rf tho Indians. Daring
his speech he commended the peaco
Prospcoltm Tor the Centennial Year
Xow is the Time to Subscribe.
The Memphis Appeal has just en
tered on tbe thirty-sixth year of its ex
istence, and great as has been its popu
larity, and brilliant as has been its
record in the past, the proprietors enter
upon tho Centennial year with a de
termination to mnke it a great repre
spntative journal of the southwest.
Notwithstanding the hard times, the cir
culation of the Appeal is larger than at
any previous period of its long career.anu
we design enlarging our field of useful
ness during tho present year by making
the paper still more worthy of the liberal
patronage it has heretofore receive!. A
newspaper during the present year will
be more than ever instructive and indis
peneable to tbe public. Momentous
questions are to bo discussed; it will be
a year of agitation and extraordinary
events. Wo will have elections, local
and natlnr a', for State legislatures and
governors, for a new congress, and a
new President. Important events will
be of daily occurrence. Stirring
Issues are shaping for tho political con
test, State and national. The Appeal
will be found abreast of all progress,
fully up to tho times. With no of
fense to Conservatives, Liberal Repub
licans, or any faction opposed to the
corruptions oi Grautism and Radical
ism, the Appeal will from day to day
preach the gospel of Democratic truth,
and insist on a cleau Democratic organ
ization. The political drift is leading
the public to understand that every man
must decide which cause ho will serve,
and the current indicates most plainly
that there will be but two parties in fu
ture elections the one Democratic, tho
other Republican. There is no alterna
tive but to choose between them. The
Appeal, true to it3 normal position and
the canonized traditions ot the party,
re-enlists under the Democratic banner.
Tho Democratic party is a national par
ty, and it should have but one and the
same name throughout the Union.
There is no coherence or nationality in a
party that afsume3 different names in
ttfToronf. in"miA.q. Tn the northern
States the enemiea to the cotruptions of
Kadicaiism, can tuemseives uemosiaisj
In Virginia, Conservatives; in Tennes

JANUAKT I, 1S7C.
Senator Christiancy's Courtship
Anna H. H., In Boston Transcrlpt.1
Washington, Februray 8.
Had the leaning; spire of the Metropol
itan church suddenly fallen, crashing
out the last discord of its chimes, it
would never have startled so much as
the announcement of Senator Christian
cy's marriage. The old gentleman has
moved about so like a fhadow, drooping
his head in deep meditation, sittii g
quietly at the desk during the hours of
senatorial work, and never once, sug
gesting to any observer that in that
slender frame there could ba any hid
ing place for romantic ideas. But when
Senator Christiancy returned from the
holiday recess, fate sent him to procure
rooms at Mrs. Choate's, on Indiana ave
nue. Rooming-.in the same houss was
a demure little Dotty Dimpb of a dam
sel, with innocent blua eye, fair hair,
waving bick from a fairer forehead, and
a general suggestiveness of pa'ability.
She had away of curling herself up in
great chaira or nestling in sofa corners
that was very charming; so the
prwe senator, turned from abtruse
poiiticsl conundrums with an in
dulgent smile, to watch tho young
lady. Fate chuckled, and made
oppoitunlties for frequent greetings that
should involve baud-clasps, and tbe
thing was done. Don't you know how
much there is in the merest touch of a
velvet patm? So, when our senator took
in his own that warm, soft little morsel
of Miss Lilie's, there crept through all
his nerves a little thrill so delicious that,
like "Oliver 'I wist," he involuntarily
as&ed for "more;" then, growing still
inor covetous, he wauteu the sole right
to the afo etaid litte hand, and in a
month from the time they met, the mo
mentous question had baen asked, and
answered with a sweet, shy "Yes."
That was two weeks ago, but nobody
guessed the socrot. The little maiden
went dally to her duties in thai forlorn
division of the treasury known as M 'Car
tel's bureau, till tho first of February;
resigning then, she has only spent a
week in preparation to join the senato
rial circle, and this morning there wss a
quiet wedding, making of Miss Lilie
IiUgenbal Mre. Judga Christiancy!
About as much difference in the relative
social position as in the age of the high
contracting parties, for the julge is sixty-four
and his bride not yet twenty.
There are six children by the former
wife, who died only nine months ago.
