Tenn MEMPHIS APPEAL SATUKDAY, MAY 27, 1876. llEWAUE OF GREEKS l'KESEXTtt. OFFERING If tbe Democratic State convention, which meeta at Njahville on Wednes day next, heeds the advice of its ene mies, it will find a Trojan horse in its midst. The Avalanche, which despises the Democratic party and Its organiza tion, spends five days in the week in traducing its champions and in dispar aging its ability to defeat .Radicals, then givei the sixth day of its publica tion to advising the party whlch-it de tests and is laboring to destroy. Here is its last advice: The Democratic Btate convention would do well on tbe thirty-liist to de clare for three things: First For the repeal of the resump tion law. Second For the Texas and Pacific railroad and Mississippi levees. Third For the integrity of the free schools. And it would do well to declare : gainst: . First Contraction of the currency. Second A public permanent debt. Third A rate of interest exceeding three per cent on the United States bonds, and against Tilden. This Is cheerful, decidedly cool. Our neighbor no doubt laughed in his sleeve at his own cheek in giving this advice to a party which to destroy he has adopted tbe strategy of the Trojans. The Republicans of Tennessee, in their State convention a few days since, would have treated with derision and contempt the counsels and recommendations of a Democratic editor, bad one been brazen enough to undertake to instruct that body as to its duty; and we presume the Democracy of Tennessee, on "Wednes day next, will receive with similar dis dain and derision the suggestions of its avowed enemies, whether coming from Radicals or Indepsndents. The Ava lanofte is in its proper element in dis cussing the resolutions of 1S63, and in abusing Demoiracy and the original se cessionists, but it is not a safe counselor to adviso the party it pursues with an implacable abhorrence. The Democracy of Tennessee, on Wednesday, will make no expression "for the Texas and Pacific railroad and Mississippi levees." The National Democratic party, in view o' the corruptions connected with the At lantic and Pacific raiiroad, will scrupu lously withhold from its platform any expression likely to impede the great object in view the defeat of the Radical corruptionists and the restoration of the government to honesty and reform. This is the first great object to be ac complished. The country reconciled and sectional hatreds extinguished by the wise policy of the Democratic party in administering the government, the Texas and Pacific railroad will be built Any effort to make that measure an isaue in the Presidential canvass will be fatal to its tuccess, either immediately or remotely. In the election for Presi dent the Democrats will be defeated if tbe south claims any thing but a desire for reconciliation and the tranquillity of the country, and honesty and reform in the administration of the govern ment. The south yields to the north and west the candidates- for President and the Vice-Presidency. She has uniformly opposed any effort to bring forward a southern states man for the Vice-Pesidency in the in terest of the country and the success of the Democratic party, and for the same lesson?, much as she desires the Texas and Pacific railrcad, she will not make that great enterprise an issue in the canvass. The Avalanche advises the convention, on Wednesday, to declare "for the Integrity of the free-schools." This is a question that belongs to the Stales, and the.St. Louis convention has nothing to do with it. Our free-schools should be maintained, but tho efficiency of the pyslem depends upon the ability of the people to pay the taxes neceasary for their support. If the convention, on Wednesday next, expresses any opinion at all on the currency question, it should oppose immediate contraction, unlimit ed Inflation, recognize gold and silver-as the Democratic constitutional currency, and promise to resume epeeie payments 0 Boon as this desirable object can be accomplished without detriment to tbe great intereste of tho country. If any expression against "a public permanent debt" would pay tbe national debt, we would have no objection to the State convention profiting by the advice of tbe Avalanche, and thus at one fell swoop extinguish two or three thousand million of national debt. Let us inaugurate reform, rigid economy and honesty in the adminis tration of the government, and our "public permanent debt," against which the Avalanche wants an expres sion of opinion, may be extinguished during tho next century. This great lover and affectionate counselor of the Democratic party wants the Democratic State convention on Wednesday "to de clare against a rate of interest exceeding three per cent, on the United States bonds." This might ba all well enough, but would possibly conflict with the four teenth smendment to the constitution, which we have accepted in good faith, and which such Bourbons as the Ava s lanchc shall never evade on tho ground that it is "unconstitutional, revolution ary and void." That amendment says: "The validity of tho public debt of tho United- States, authorized by law, in cluding debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in sup pressing intnrrection and rebellion, shall not be questioned." This pledge must be faithfully carried out. The Demo cratic convention will not, as advised by the Avalanche, that affectionate lov er of the party, on Wednesday next "de clare against Tilden." It will declare against no one, and fcr no one. It will elect discreet delegate, andrely upon their prudence and judgment men whe will have the patriotism that cares noth ing for men, and which Is ready to tac rifioe them for the good of the cause. Let us send men to SL Louis with only such Instructions as their own honest hearts may dictate, and which will In duce them to vote for the candidate who ehall seem most available. Wff are for Tilden, believing blm to be the only man to carry New York, without which defeat Is conceded by all. Rut if our friends at St. Louis, after comparing notes, arrive at the opinion that it is ex pedient to nominate some other Demo crat, we will support him earnestly, cor dially, and zealou3ly. VERY TIIIX TACTICS. "Editors in that line of business, who desire to print sweet little articles pufT Ing Tilden five for ten dollars should address, in haste, Messrs. Bates & Locke, advertising agents, 34 Park Row, New York. Mr. Tilden is the anti-corruption candidate, as it were." This extract is from the, Avalanche, of yesterday. In its istua of Thursday, the same paper printed a lot of para graphs which, it eays, were forwarded by Messrs. Bates & Locke, of New York, in the inteiest of Mr. Tilden, as wading matter to its subscribers, for a stated compensation. According to theAva lanche, Messrs. Bates fc Locke offered it ten dollars to publish the batch, which sum it iefused as not being, enough pay, we suppose, for doing Mr. Tilden a friendly turn, but put 'em in free gratis, for nothing, "as It wereHn the hope of doing him a sneaking injury. Tie paragraphs selected from have all been Democratic pa exception of the pers, -with the Cincinnati Commercial and New York Tribune, nnd we pretume are really gen uine. But, in reproducing them, the Ava lanche 'completely exposes the source of thejr issuance, which Itbught not to have done as the faithful ally ofRepublican lem In this locality. Mr. "Locke," one of the firm which is sending these ten dollar paragraphs over the country In the avowed interest of Mr. Tilden, is who? Why n6ne other than Petroleum V. Naaby, "one of the most unscrupulous Radical filth-heavers in America, which the Avalanche so well knows that it has often been the medium of circulating the foul slanders from his pen against the Democrats generally, and the people of the south particularly. If Mr. Til den, or his friends, had determined upon such a course as the one the Avalanche affects to believe, he or they would not have been silly enough to have made Petroleum V. Nasby, one of the Repub lican ..party's shining lights and most faithful henchman, the medium' of cir culating them for publication iii Demo cratic papers. And as far as Memphis is concerned, no Democratic jour nal has been furnished with such doc uments by Mr." Tilden himself, much less with his consent, but by his party's political enemies, Bates & Locke. The Avalanche, a Democratic sheet in no particular, but, on the con trary, that organizational moat unre lenting and most unfair enemy, has been the only journal here which has enioved Mr. Petroleum V. Nasby's con-: fidence sufficiently to receive an official1 ten-dollar favor at his hands for its columns. The Appeal never knew of the existence of these "cut-and-dried" paragraphs until they appeared in the Avalanche. The editor of the Ledger gives the same statement in its issue of yesterday concerning the mat ter. Mr. Tilden requires no such tricks to get the newspapers throughout the country to give an expression in regard td his candidacy. He. is too prominent ly before the people with an un blemished record to so disgrace himself as. to authorize Petroleum V. Nasby to offer the Memphis Avalanche ten dollars for any kind of article in its columns that could possi bly be tortured into its indorsement of him. Where then do these documents cdme from which are sent to such pa pers a? the Avalanche by Bates & Locke? In our opinion they have been gotten up by the National Republican executive committee for the purpose of furnishing such willing enemies of Mr. Tilden, like the Avalanche, with slan derous pretexts for breaking his strength which is every day growing to such proportions as to threaten his haters, and the haters of his party, with having to call him for four years to come the President of the United States. This plot of Mr. Tilden's enemies deserves some credit for having been shrewdly conceived, but when Petroleum V. Nas by was selected to carry it out, it becomes exceedingly attenuated and of no weight. BRISTOW II? TESKESSEE. The strength '.which has been, manu factured for. Uriatow in Tennessee, is without substantial basis. Indeed, he is weaker in Tennessoe than either of bis riyals for the nomination. We, hear it said that' there are a thousand Demo crats in Shelby county who will support Bristow if nominated. This is' an ab surdity; we have heard the same sort of talk In every" Presidential election When James K. Polk was nominated it was proclaimed that the Damccrats were deserting him and supporting Clay. The result showed the mistake. When Franklin Pierce was nominated, he was sneered at and derided, but he turned out to be "the best in the world." This gasconade about Democrats supporting Bristow Is without foundation. It is no doubt true that these fence-men, milk- and-water Democrats, who have no con victions and no principles, and who for eelfish purposes hunt for. the strong side, b&ve been deluded by. this twaddle abbut BriBtow'e strength, but they will be undeceived should he be nominated. ' an event not at all probable, and will return to the Democratic party, which they will never desert ao long as it has a prospect of triumph and offices to give. For the purpose of tthowing the strength of Bris tow in Tennessee, we make the follow ing extract from a Nashville letter to the New York Timet: 'To-day the situation is about this: Tbe negroes to a unit are for Morton first, last, and all the time; the whites are evenly divided betwecu Morton and Bristow. Of this you may be assured: Should Bristow be the nominee of tbe Cincinnati convention, he could not carry ten thousand negro votes in our State, and I have heard numbers of our. ataunchest white Republicans declare that under no circumstances could tbey be Induced to cast their ballots for him'. They do not like the fulsome praise be-, stowed on blm by the Democrats, and be lieve that he will sell them out if elected, just as Andrew Johnson did. They cer tainly prefer a northern Democrat with a good war record to any southern Republican. This is no doubt true. There is noth ing in Bristow's character to inspire the nesro with enthusiasm. He is not as sociated with auy event calculated to win the support of the colored people, who regard Grant as their beneiactor and Morton as their champion. If nom inated, Morton would receive the solid vote of Tennessee, and Bristow would lose thee necro votes for every Demo cratic vote he received. We can see nothinar that Bristow has done that Democrats should think of supporting him. H has had a few dbtiilers of whiskv arrested and convicted, but we have fallen upon degenerate times if Democrats can be induced to sacrifice tbeir party and vote for a Republican became, fcrsootb, he has discharged nis sworn duty as an officer, and Bent half a dozen knaves to tho penitentiary. Con ceding all that is claimed for him, the Democratic Tilden is recognized as the Counterpart of .Republican Bristow, and where both are honest men will vote with their old party associ ates. We trust tho Democratic party is not so bankrupt in honest men that Democrats in Tennessee will be forced to -vote with the Republicans in order to find an honest man. Is it possible that the Democratic party ia absolutely desti tute of a man equal to Bristow In char acter, honesty, patriotism and states manship? So we might conclude If it were true, as we ofcen hear, that nearly all the Democrats of Shelby were for Bristow. The JJemocracy oi Tennessee hnvn nn fear at Morton. Blaine or Conk- llng, and they have much less for Bris tow, as the colored voters know nothing and care nothing about him. TILDEN AND THE SOUTH. The Cincinnati Gazette says: "The ardent support of Tilden by the Louis ville Courier-Journal has finally roped in the Memphis Appeal and not a few of the small papers of the south that have been accustomed to look to these two journals for their political pabu lum." The Appeal was not "roped into" the support of Tilden by the Courier-Journal, nor are the southern papers that so zealously support Tilden influenced by the Appeal or other pa pare. They see as we see, and ai every sensible man ought to see, that Tilden is unquestionably the strongest, that he can carry New York, without which de feat is inevitable; and preferring a cer tainty to an uncertainty, they urge his nomination. Tilden's strength is greater than any other candidate. The candi date to win is the candidate that the south ia determined to support at St. Louis just one month from now, and that candidate, whether we like his opinions in everything or not, is Samuel J, Tilden. Let us demonstrate this assertion. The entire number of electo ral votes is threehundred and sixty-five, and one hundred and eighty-five votes are required to elect. The Democrats will certainly carry the southern States of Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Flori da, Georgia, Kentucky,Louisiana,Mary land, Mississippi, Missouri, North Caro lina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. These States have one hundred and thirty-one electoral votes, being fifty-four votes less than a ma Jority. These fifty-four votes can be ob tained from New York, New. Jersey, Connecticut and the. Pacific States. Governor Tilden can assuredly carry New York,,and iB more likely than any other candidate to carry New Jersey and Connecticut. These States, with the vote of the southern States and the Pacific States, will handsomely elect him. And the man who can be elected Is the candidate we want. We have conceded the northwest to the Republi cans. Ohio will most likely go Repub lican. The Allen party nnd the Thur- man party divide tho State, and there is no hope that tho Democrats are more united than they were last fall. Thurman might carry Ohio, but can we, for the sake of gain ing Ohio, run the risk of losing New York? Mr. Hendricke, if nominated, could carry Indiana; but he could not, as we read the.signs of the times, carry Ohio. Nor would he be likely to carry New York, which is shy of any western candidate. The choice is between either Ohio or Indiana, and New York, New Jersey and Connecticut between a local succeai and electing a President. More over, it is clear enough that Tilden is tho second choice of the Liberals. This was Indicated in their recent New York convention.. On Wednesday California instructed for Tilden. Kentucky will be for him, as indicated in the election of delegates clamorous for his nomination. For thirty-six years the Appeal has been read by the Democracy of Tennes see, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkan sas, and its Democracy has never been questioned; and as an editor who has la- bared for. the party for nearly forty years, We tell our sister States that without the nomination of Governor Tilden they will for four years more be bedeviled with the same Radical rule, which has usurped their rights and encouraged thieves in robbing and plundering them. The statesman we -recommend to you is nqt a man bt mere passive virtues". He possesses rugged honesty and is aggress ive only in warring with knavery and corruption. His name ia already a watchword of reform. He la a man upon whom the eouth can confidently Jean in her desire for peace and freedom "from those molestations which impair her prosperity. His courageous tnd successful battle against the Tammany ring, his resolute and persistent exposure and prosecution of the New York canal frauds, his statesmanlike messsges, and his admirable administration as governor of the most powerful State of the Union, all indicate a man who is not only honest in his own person, but intolerant of 'dishonesty in other a statesman who cannot be deceived,- as well as an official who cannot be bribed a bold, vigorous, upright and experienced exe cutive who has the power as well as the disposition to extirpate frauds and purl fy the public service. "With the imperi al State of New York, the Democratic party will triumph. Without it defeat is inevitable. Victory depends upon the nomination of Tilden. THE I'llEE AND EAST INDEPEND ENTS. The human race, we are told, Is con stantly advancing. We have learned to substitute the dashing speed of the rail way for the slow motion of the1 stage coach; we have become accustomed to the instantaneous flash of the telegraph; we can guide ourselves across tbe track less wastes of the ocean by the compass, and we can look through a telescopo into the craters arid valleys of the moon. This is called progress. The outcome of ages of thought and research slowly ac cumulating stores of knowledge for our present use and convenience. Step by step have these many victories over ignorance and superstition been won. When vaccination was first Introduced, demagogues and knaves aroused tbe peoplu to fury by appeals to .their igno rance and fears. When Galileo opened to the human eye the whhllng mechan ism of nature's great system, ho was imprisoned by bigots and fools, and there were no doubt aboard the caravel of Columbus, men of independent minds who considered him an ais and wished to return. Even now, when all these greit questions have been long considered tettled, occasional ly there comes to thefcurfacesome fossil ized idiot who denies that the earth is round because the stones don't fall off the stump at night, or who considers the telegraph wires the cause of a drouth or tbe cattle disease. These are looked upon by their neighbors as curiosities, and are laughed at as a mild grade of lunatics. For, as their mistakes occur on points of phyeics, things which even the d allest minds can be made to see and understand, tbey are renderod ridiculous by the contrast of their asei nlne opinions and the settled judgment of the world. When, however, we leave the domain of physics of the apparent and tangible a largo class becomes subjected to the banefid effects of ignorance and credu lity, and the power of artful demagogues becomes more dangerous. Now, there must be common agreement on some points, or there can be no discussion. Something must be taken for granted some ground must be occupied in com monin order that there may even be tho leiist progress. Without this no ad vance is possible. If, for instance, it is not admitted that two and two make four, how can we possibly engage In the higher mathematical discussions? And mathematics is the most exact of sci ences. If it is not admitted that false hood is evil and truth good, how can we demonstrate theprinciple3 of morality? If it ia not admitted that men have a right to exist, how is it possible to ex plain the principles of human liberty? And thus in common with all acts, all sciencoa, politics has certain funda mental principles upon which all men agree certain points to which the con sent of all Intelligent persons has been won by long and laborious discussion, and from which as a foundation all in telligent discussion must proceed. One of theiie is the necessity of political par ties, and their advantage to the State. Centuries cf discussion, volumes of learnicg, ages of thought, have in the long past been devoted to this question, and it has finally been settled in the affirms tive. To gravely reopen the dis cussion now, is to simply turn from the future to grope in the obscurity and dust of the past. It is as ridiculous as to ask a book-keeper to show why it is that his figures add up correctly, or to urge a lecturer on science ,to demonstrate anew the rotundity oi tne earin. Much a course would lose all the progress of the world, and consume the future in con tinual explanations to feeble intelli gences. It is expected when a journal ist pretends to instruct the paople upon politics that he should at least inform himself upon the ascertained principles of the past. But the miserable class known as Independents, either do not know enough to render their instruc tion profitable, or they are demagogues whose blatant professions are-used to cover up their designs. 1 hoy are of those who can ask more questions than the ten wise men could answer. They ap peal to the ignorance and prejudice of the community; they endeavor to hide their shuffling evasion of political prin ciple behind the purity and majesty of moral Independence, a thing essentially and totally different; they prostitute a noble term to the uses of miserable sore head edness which, like a glandered horse, infects better natures with con tagion. Afraid to venture into the open air and boldly espouse a cause, they shoot a poisoned arrow from conceal ment into the side which seems the weaker, or crawl over tho battlefield to pillage the defenseless bodies of the slain. Such are Independents. They are inevitably driven to one of two things. Either their Independence is feigned or not. If they are entirely free from the control of parties, then they are also not controlled by principle, which is the sole foundation of parties, If tbey are not so freed, then they are skulkers waiting for a chance to stab the weakest, and deserve only such fate as belongs to Bples and jayhawkers.
