JL Kkatio. j Memphis, Tenn MEMPHIS APPEAL FItIA. : : : 31 Alt C II 10, 1876. Mr. Dana, our recently appointed ruinlEler to England, is described by the Uiston correspondent of the Chicago Times as not a popular man, being aris twratlcand exclusive, and by many thought snobbish; but his enemies ac knowledca him a man cf culture, irre proachable character, and honest by in stinct. He has always been a Btrong partisan, and supported the truly loyal and regular ticket, except when he ran against Butler as the independent can didate in the Essex district some years ago, and was badly beaten. In the last campaign he spoke for Kice and Grant, but for which fact he would not probably have been nominated. Mr. Dana is an extremohigh churchman, touched on many points with Anglo-phobia, and dnibtleas would make an acceptable minister to tho English, though the Americans will not tdmire bis extreme reserve on the whole. His appointment has brought heart-burnlups to the Mor-ton-Uatler wing of tbe Republican par ty, for he has always opposed Butlerism, and contested his district in 1870. He lives in Butler's distric and is noted as a scbo'ar of the Motley school. He was an intimate friend of Sumner, and high in Boston'" Brahmin ranks. If tiie eiiemir s of the south and the Democratic party, who take tspecial de light in persecuting Mr. Ben Hill, of Georgia, wou'd surrender themselves a moment to tbe spirit of fair ply, and pablish all that he says on the side of union and peace, the public would form a belter judgment than it can otherwise, of one of the ablest and most intelligent of our public men. A case in point Is furnished by what he said recently in a letter to Mrs. H. 8. Kimball, acknowl edging the receipt cf a southern flag, captured at Milledgeville by the Union sildiera under Sherman. He said: "I cn truly say I have no mission in pub lic life but to aid as far as I may be able in restoring public peace, and in pro moting the Dublin vr" . tk-- -uc Luiiu uauuoi unoru to ssk tne peo ple of the south to yield their manhood, for that would prove themselves of the north unmanlv. The people of the south cannot afford to yield their man hood, for that would be to confoss them selves unworthy. Lt thepeopleof each section admit the great truth that we differed honestly; that we fought bravo ly, and that our differences are settled, in good faith, on tbe basis of the const! tution as it is." There is not a word of this that any good citizen cannot sub scribe to. ihe possession or a national-cur nncy has proved an advantage to the country. A citizen can travel, as he ought, from State to State, and every where the money he left home with Is of the same value. Whatever difference they may be as to the quantity of na tioual currency that ought to be issued, ommoD tense men, unicfluenctd by mere notions and impracticable theories, wish that a genuine national currency should be retained. In the struggle of opinions upon the subject of issuing a 1 nger or smaller amount of this cur- rjnry, some zealots at Washington pro pose to throw embarrassments in the way of retaining tho national currency, that would, if carried out, add to the causes of commercial distress which are now afllictlnjr the country, new and H'.lll more serious obstructions to the p-ib'Ic welfare. The supreme court of the United Btates has decided that the Uaae of legal-tender notes, by congress, Wis authorized by the war power with wulch it is invested. The war being over, the troublesome partisans question talk of contesting the validity of all legal-tenders issued since the return of peace. It is pro posed to effect this object by a refusal of citizens to receive legsl-tender notes in payment of debts. It is claimed that when a lfgal-tender note is returned to the treasury in payment of taxes, it can not legally be reissued. Should the coutt decide that this objection Is SDund, when greenbacks were paid in for na tional taxes, there would be no author! ty that could legally rejssue them, or to Isiue new notes in their stead. This would bring about a contradiction of the currency, under circumstances, and with a lapidity that would prove calamitous In its consequences to commerce, and to ths Interests of eveiy family and every individual in the cauntry. Such a re sult the keenest partisan cculd not de fclre. Oaly those who are enemies to the United States could wish to see such a fate befall its people. But this would not be sll if tho government has power to rslssue greenbacks, such no as nave been so circulated would not be lawful money, and coulJ not be legal- tenders. This would make nearly all the greenbacks now out valueless as cur rency, and creditors could refuse to re ceive them. This would bring us to hpecie payment, with a catas trophe bo violent that all cred it would be shaker, and a na tional panic would steep the whole land in disaster. The immensity of the sheck is what will preserve us from It. As a cotemporary has obeerved upon his serious subject: "The supreme court ib constituted precisely as it was when it reversed the decision that tho legal-tender acta were unconstitutional in their application to debts contracted prior to their pjussge, and decided that they were constitutional with respect tojall debts and dues save thoee expresily ex ceptl by tbe terms of the acts them selves. A court which could render such a decision will almost certainly hold that congress is sole Judge of the question whether a necessity for a paper tender act exists, and of the time when such neceesity ceases to exist." The respect in which Pinch back, de feated applicant for a place in the United States senate, as a bloody-shirt Morton Xiouislana Badlcal, has all the time bten held by the Republican sena tors could not be better exemplified than It was yesterday by Senator Ferry, presl dent of the senate pro tan., who, as the telegraph informs us, "caused all the " door-keepers to be specially notified " that Pinchback Is no longer, entitled " to tbe privileges of the floor." Fancy the feelings of Bruce, of Mifsissippi, who so excoriated Grant and his cabinet a few weeks ago, when he beard this order. The almost indecent haste of it. as Brace and Morton would say, is enough to collapse the Radicalism of the duet and fix their troubled souls in ever lasting doubt of those around them Pinchback thus kicked out of tbe house of his friends, and loser of thirty thou sand doliara of back salary through their treachery, can afford to return to Louisiana and, as he once promised "raise hell" among the niggers. There is some talk in Washington of disciplining Ben Hill in the Democratic caucus to. prevent htm from furnishing any more campaign documents for tne Republicans. There is a report that Ben has a speech prepared in which he de fends the doctrine of secession. Com menting on this, a "Washington special suggestively remarks: "Grave suspicions are expressed among tne jjemocrats that Ben ha a method in this madness, which certain BermUicans could explain if they would." Nashville American, of Hcanesaay. Something similar to the above state ment has found its way into many pa- per-) at the south which have as little excuse as the American for its publico tion. They must know better. They must know that Mr. Hill is above and beyond the imputation conveyed in the last four lines, imputation as it is of a crime as base as that for which Belknap is under indictment in the courts of the District of Columbia. It is & plain im putation that Mr. Hill is under contract with some Republican leadtrs to betray the Democratic paity by personal ex cesses of Bpeech that shall furnish to tbe thieving enemies of our common coun try occasion for the perpetuation at tbe north of the sectional and war feel Ing. Such an implication suggests the grossest paity treachery. Nay, more. It implies a treachery to prevent the final punishment of tbe thieving party by its utter defeat and rcut at the ballot-box in .November next. We take Mr. Hill's life-long record, and; with it, feel authorized to repel such an implication as utterly un worthy of association with tbe name of one whose very earnestness of convic tion and expression is made the basis of it. We scout it as impossible, and, therefore, improbable. Meanwhile, we think it not unworthy of the immediate attention of Mr. Hill himself, who, be- causo he promptly answered Blaine, is sought in certain quarters to be punish ed therefor as a political outcast and criminal. It affords us great pleasure to thank the Republican members of tbe house, as well na the Democrats, who assisted our member of congress in his efforts to rr--L -.- Aii 3 TUOlOUi house for this city. We had begun to despair of ever sharing in the distribu tion of government favors since the Re publican party hereabouts held out tbe idea that unless we confessed their faith such a thing was impossible. Thanks, however, to the persistent and well-directed efforts of Colonel Young, it has turned out otherwise. We can share in the government dispensations of money expended for public building?, and yet retain our political faith pure and unsul lied. Colonel Young forced the needs of the Federal officers of Memphis in regard to proper quarters upon the at tention of tbe house, and being second ed by such influential Republicans as Banks, Thornburg, Conger and Kelley, and such Dsmocratic leaders as Hol man, Morrison, Randall, Cox, Wells, of Missouri, and the whole Tennessee dele gation, achieved what had been previ ously denied us. We thank these gen (lamen for their votes and their influ ence in behalf of a measure that we feel warranted in assuring them they will never have occasion to regret having indorsed.

Ro well's American News Report er and Printers' Gazette continues to be as useful as from the first it prom ised, and is still jnoot welcome in the Appeal office. The Lumbermen's Gazette is tin title of a handsome weekly published at Bay City, .Michigan, now in its seventh volume, a number -of which reached us yesterday by mall. We recommend it to lumbermen, builders, and all In any way concerned with the "timber trade." The Musid Trade Review contin ues to fulfill all the promise It held out in the first number, and though some times very harsh, almost uncouth in tho language it employs in criticism upon executants, Is an Invaluable aid to all in the music business. Its technical re views of sheet mnsic cannot fail to tell in time in a departmental present filled with chaff. Wb have received from the publish ers, 63 Victoria street, London, the Feb ruary number of The British Mercantile Gazette, a handsome quarto, on tinted paper, published monthly, and contain ing over thirty pages of valuable infor mation respecting manufacturing and commercial interests. Its editorial sum mary is especially attractive and In structive. Our British cotemporary asks the Appeal to exchange with it, a request "weacceed 'to with pleasure, for its carefully compiled trade reports can not fail to make it a valuable addition to our exchange list. Plant Brothers are the publishers. The Commercial Agency system of the United States and Canada Expose J, by Thomas F. Meagher, is a handsomely-printed and carefully-bound volume of two hundred and ninety-eight paces, which, as Its title imports, is a scathing review of a sy&tem that has the general support of the commercial communi ties of the Union, and is held in esteem for the valuable information furnished to subscribers every day. Mr. Meagher Is in earnest, and, we believe, is con vinced of the truth-of all he says, but as we are not able to deny or verify his statements, and they rest Eolely upon his showing, tho public will have to take them for what they are worth. The book can be had by addressing the author at New York. The second number of the Southern Historical Society Ibpers, now before us, contains "A vindication of "Virginia and the South," by the late Commodore M. F.Maury; "The Seven Days' Bat tles," by General E. P. Alexander, chief of artillery of Longstreet's corps; "Camp Fhe3 of the Boys in Grey," by Prlvate.Carlton M'Carthy, of tho Rich mond howitzers; "Letter from General Joe IS. Johnston;" "Correction by Com modore CatesbyAp. R. Jones;" "Cap ture of the l'ndianols," by J. L. Brent; Tribute to J. E. B. Stuart," by Flfz Lee, delivered at Richmond, October 28, 1876; "Soacoast Defenses of South Caro lina and Georgia," by General A. L iiong; cmei or artillery. Tne next, or March number, will be devoted to a vin dication of the Confederacy in regard to her treatment of prisoneis of war. We received yesterday a circular from Dunn, Barlow & Co.'s commercial agency in reference. to what purports to be an expose of their affairs by one Thomas F. Meagher, a notice of which will be found in this column. Of course Dunn, Barlow & Co. deny the impeach ment of Meagher, of whom they say: "Thomas Francis Meagher, alias Chas. F. Maynard, is, ss his real name im plies, the son of Irith parents, who re sided in Montreal. Our first knowledge of him is that, he was employed as mes senger boy in the Montreal office In 1862; but, writing a good hand, he was promoted to a copyist's desk, and event ually to the charge of petty cash. In 1866 he came to New York and was em- ployed.as a copyist and reader off and nn for savaihI vpnrs TTn w.i dinmfssod from the New York office, about a year ago, -for dishonesty, and f6r attempting to corrupt tbe fidelity of some of his fellow-clerks."

The MRrch number of the Interna' tional Review is, in point of interest, one of the best of a publication that Is filling its place most creditably ,in the Interest of science, literature and art. Tbe opening article, by George Walker, of New York, is a very favorable and friendly review of Prof. Cairnes's essays on the Irish educational question and the American civil war. Of course we do not agree with all the conclusions and deductions in the latter, nor always with tbe manner of statement, but, mak ing allowances for tbe strong anti-slavery bias of the lamented professor, we have to accord him at least the praise that Is due to honesty and strength of conviction. A compensation for any thing unfavorable to our section in Cairnes's may, however, be found in the "Old and the New South," by John C. Reed, of Georgia In this article we have something like justice and a fair presentation of our condition and prospects. "Bardlsm," by Aneurln Vardd, of New York, is a moet interest ing contribution, and just now a very opportune one in Memphis, on account of the impetus given to the study of poetry by the maznificent pageant of the Memphi on Mardi Gran.
