MACHISE POLITICIANS. - The Independents are continually twaddling about what they call the ma-, chine polltlclaxB. They alludelo those DamocrctJ and Republicans who utand by their party, lta organization and its uoialnees. The two great political par ties'inett in the open face of day, and in publio meetings proclaim their princi ples 'and nominate their candidates. This' Is their machlnory. But the Iude pendent machine is run in the dark. It is manipulated by a little equad who meet with closed doors and concoct their r!4DB by whispering and button holing each other, as the knownoth ings used to do in their dark rookeries. They fix up a ticket in secret conclave, anil ttie'n insidiously approach the men eelrcied-as-candld&tea and endeavor to convince them that they have no chance boforo a regular convention, and if they will turn traitor to their pariy they will bring to their support the solid vote of the opposite parly. This Is the machin ery by which the Independent machine ii run. Jit is operated by stealth, and its candidates are the products of men wbornn their machine in the dark. Tiiaftust for office often causes men to yield to temptations, and if there ia a Democrat in Shelby county who listens to the seductive wiles of the little sore )i called coterie, ;who are in dark-lantern meetings endeavoring to concoct schemes to defeat the Democratic party, we would ask him to pause and reflect before lending himself as a contempti ble tool to do the dirty woik of the In dependent marplots and disorganisers. The world over traitors and mutineers are despised, and the Democrat who in the present struggle for re form deserts his colors, will find in the end that be has made a fatal mis take, far he may triumph up in one election, but the party he has deserted will not trust him, and the creatures that have used him will admire the treason by which they profited, but they will hate tho traitor Ho man deserve to have a political existence who betrays Ills comrades in euch a cause and at such" a time, and every one who heads a mutiny in the midst of the camp should tie treated with still greater rigor than the deserter who goes boldly over to the enemy in the broad light of day. The latter takes the more honorable, and, to us, less daneercus course. We know him for an enemy; can meet him as such in open light, and can estimate the harm his desertion has caused Us; but who can count the cost of an enemy still in the camp, whe, while pretending friendship, itabs ycu in your camp at midnight, or leaves you to your fate,in the very moment of bssured victory? Tlistwe have such enemies In the ranks of the p:rty, we but too well know; but f irtuaately they are as yet but few, and we trust their number may not Increase. There is lees danger from this class in a general election than in a contest like that now approaching for county offi cere, or iu elections for members of the general assembly. The greed or ambi tlon for petty cfli:e is too powerful a mo tive to save them from treason. This Is tho bane of cur people, Tho antidote is in maintaining the party organization and enforcing the strictest discipline. Thereimast te no toleration of the "Independent" candi dates, so-called, who are in reality Rad icals in disguise, and in a very flimsy disguise at that. Guard against these not that it is so impo.iant in Itself but because it is the beginning, the entering wedge, which if winked at or tolerated most end in splitting the party and de- , stroying.the last hope of the people of mis commonweaun. we noiu toe power now, and with a strong hand, and let us retain our firm grasp upon it at every hazard. Frown down everything that savors of treason to principle or party, which is the same thing, though it should appear in the most Innocent iforrn', for it is dangerous to even harbor it in your thoughts'. Let those In charge of the party organization throughout the county assume tho aggressive at once, and show their zeal by their activity in drawing the lines and subjecting their districts to the most search ing scrutiny. Everywhere there should be nominations made, arid our plan of organization and rules rigidly enforced. That this should ba done now is the more necessary, as it will serve to strengthen us in the fall, when the election of a general assembly is to take place, in which questions of the highest importance in the State will be involved; and It is also necessary, in view of the fact that we are on the eve of a great Presidential campaign, in which the voice of Tennessee will be heard, and, we trust, with no uncertain found in our political affairs. Close up the ranks, therefore, and move forward, shoulder to shoulder, in the great battle for tho triumph of Democracy, whose battle-cry ia reform, peace und reconcili ation. SATCRIATH ELECTION. There must bs a fair, square election of delegates on Saturday. Good men have announced themselves as candidates be fore the nominating convention, and if "we would secure harmony we must see to it that the primary election be fairly held, and that nono but the best men be elected as delegates. In order to avoid complaint and discord, and toinsure tho beat available selections of candidates there, this cannot be accomplished unless -pr t$e wisest and moat discreet men be nent to the nominating convention on the twenty-first of June. There ia a gen eral expression of sentiment that the best men of the Democratic party ehould be nominated for the many po sitions to be filled at the elections in August and November, and the only way to succeed in selecting such candi dates is for all citizens having the inter ests of the city, county and Democratic party at heart to attend the primary meetings and see that fit men are chosen to represent them in the nominating conventions. It is unfair to grumble and complain after the nominations are made and men unfit to represent our In terests are chosen, If we absent our selves from the polls. Jt is criminal negligence on the part of good citizens to refrain from voticg at the primarie?. rhelr interests are at stake, and they can control the nominations if they only make an effort to do bo. There are few men who cannot spare the time to vote Saturday, and we earnestly hope that there will be a full turn-out of our business men and all classes of citizens. THE MtlJIAKY EUECTIOAH. The Democratic party of Shelby coun ty on Saturday next will elect delegates to the county convention. The election will be by regular ballot, and it is hoped the people vf ill come forward and elect as delegates the most thoughtful and prudent men of the party. It is impor tant that the strongest and "best men be nominated, and there should be a gen eral turnout of Democratic citizens at the primary polls a grand popular de monstration of intelligent and respect able men, urging the election of dele gates whose names will be a eutllcient guarantee that they will labor for the nomination of candidates suitable in every desired qualification, and capable of commanding the suffrages-of the peo ple. In this alone consists the certainty of success; and we appeal to the Democ racy of Shelby county, in the name of good government and publio decency, to fulfill their whole duty as becomes citi zens having the honor and prosperity of the county at heart. The New York World of the c-leventh estimates Tilden's vote at St. Louis at four hundred and fifty on the first ballot This calculation is upon f he basis of four hundred and ninety-one to nominate under the two-thirds rule. The World is not or Governor Tilden. The Au gusta Constitutionalist, of late date, con tains an article, of which the following Is an extract: "The second ballot will be an actual trial of strength, and we believe Governor Tilden will not only lead, but will havo a .majority, if not two-thirds of the convention. On this ballot Governor Hendricks will probably secure the following S'atea: Indiana. 15 1 Ohio .22 Missouri 15 1 Tennessee... .......12 1 States : 64 The Ohio Democrats, as between Til den and Hendricks, will probtbly vote for the latter, but it will be "buzzard" to them either way. They hate any eastern Democrat, and they are not likely to forget Indiana's course in 1868. The following States will probably vote for Governor Tilden: California...... Uolorado,. Connecticut....! Delaware... Iowa ...... Kentucky..... Maine....... Massachusetts.. Michigan...... Minnesota...... . 6: ... 3 Nebraska.................. S Nevada ... .... 3 New Hampshire..... 5 ..... a u ew Jerhey...... v Niw York .35 12 .... 7 13 Oregoni... ..... 3 Rhode Island........... 5 Texas.. 8 11 Vermont .......... 5 5 Wiscocsln...... .10 20 States. .. ,162 There are Ieft(the following: juauaiaa u aiaiyianu. Arkansas... 6 Mississippi Flrilda..... , 4) North Carolina... Georgia.....- .11 1 Pennsylvania..., UllnolX... .. 21, South Carolina. Louisiana .. ... SiVlrctnla.....- Kansas.............. 5 West Virginia.. 5 14 Btates ...... ........ 143 This table Is arranged upon the same basis as the elecforal college, 369 votes. It will be observed that 14 States are left out of the reckoning for Hendricks and Tilden. All of these States, except Kan sas, Illinois and Pennsylvania, are re garded as .certain for Tilden. Their votes aggregate 93, which added to 162, makes 260, or 14 more than two-thirds. The best evidence of Tilden's strength before the people Is the fear Republicans have of his nomination, and consequent ly their abuse of him. Tho Cincinnati Commercial of the twelfth of June, how ever, contains an editorial from which the following; extracts are taken: "With such a man as Tilden nominated at St. Louis, upon a platform such as his nom ination would imply, this Liberal, Inde pendent and German vote might be given laigsly to him rather than to Blaine. ISow, as against Tilden, what reasonable hope have the Republicans of carrying either New York or New Jersey, with Mr. Blaine and his railroad record?" The article in qusstlonJs written in Colonel Bristow's Interest, and as the chief ar gument for him is hi3 reform record, the Commercial is reduced to thoughtful ad missions of Tilden's strength to find substantial reasons for the nomination of its favorite. We -would be obliged for some Inde pendent to inform us when and where the Democrats raised taxes. The De mocracy, as we understand it, is for honest government for the people, and not for a multiplicity of places for bread and-butter politicians. Advices indicate a possible ticket at St. Louis of Tilden for President and Hendricks for Vice-President. Antag onisms' have of late been explained and settled, and now there is a probability of great unanimity. Such a ticket would sweep the country. We presume the editor of the Ava lanche has gone to Cincinnati to explain to Ex-Governor Allen that the Ava lanche meant nothing after his defeat by "Set down, Ballen," and how enthusi astic it is for him at SL Louie. The telegraph announces that Bis marck has crone to Kissenccn. Now. there might have been more interest felt in this extraordinary announcement if illssengen had gone to uismarcK, or Bissengen had gone to Kissmarck, or Markiugen bad gone to Jussenbiss, or Missbarck to Singenkiss, or Kiss, with out the singen, had gone to Bis, without the marck, or sing, minus the singen, had none to Mark without the Bis, or words of that import If .you have delicate, puny, pale chil dren, give them Dr. J.

JTJjyElS; - UWT WASHINGTON. The Kadhuls Trying to Stir Up Discord at St. Louis -An Effort in llcliair of General Hancock. Tilden's Enemies in cw lorK liaic Made a Mistake The Republican Candidates, Etc. From our Special Correspondent. A RADICAL DODGE. "Washington, June 11. It will In terest your Democratic readers to learn that Judge Edmunds, the secretary of the Republican congressional commit tee, is trying to hire certain persone,who call themselves Democrats, to get op a row at St. Louis during the meeting of the National convention. The Republi cans have built largely upon the hope of discord at St. Louis; and, as there is every evidence of harmony there, Ed munds intends, if possible, to manufac ture a schism . An anti-Greeley demon stration was made at Baltimore, after tho National convention met there In 1872, the expenses of which were paid by Edmund.' out of the Republican campaign fund. This fact was not known at the time even to the majority of those who were engaged in the move ment, but Edmunds has frequently boasted of his part in it since. I have the names of some of the persons who r;celved money from Edmunds at that time. Of course the attempt to repeat the trick now will be a fniture, but it is interesting to know that its repetition Is contemplated. A very strong effort is being made now, in Washington, on behalf of General Hancock, who Is very popu'ar; in fact, his con nection wuh the hanging of Mir. Sur ratt is the only thing alleged against him. He would probably poll the full Democratic vote, north and sonth ; but it does not seem so certain that ho could draw support enough from Independent and Republican voters to be elected. There can b9 no question that Tilden is by far the strongest of all the candidates up to this time. It ia conceded that he will have a majority of the convention 'on the first' bailor, but it is denied that he can obtain the requisite two-thirdp. The fact that he carried his own State by a much larger majority than any other Democrat ever had, is certainly a strong argument m favor 01 nispopu latity. TILDEN'S ENEMIES IN NEW YOBK made a grand mistake in their crusade aeainst him. They began it too soon thus giving his friends time to show, by facts and flenre?, that, instead of being unpopular with tho Democracy of the Empire State, be is looked upon as tbe saviour of the narty by every honest De mocrat in the State, and is esteemed as a gentleman and admired as a bold and fearless statesman of action, by honest men of both parties. If these would-be detractors from the name and fame of the great Democratic reform governor had kept entirely still until about a week before tbe tot. ijouis convention, anu then flooded the country with misstate ments which there would have been no time to refute, they might have accom plished their evil purpose. But'they were not wise in their wickedtiesi Three months ago Tilden was only thought, outside of his State, to be the strongest man m it ot eitner party; out tho misstatements of his enemies the enemies of reform led to investigation, and now he is known to ba the strongest man. THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES. Notwithstanding the fact that nine- tenths of the Republicans you meet in Washington appear to be enthusiastic Blaine men, the friends of Conkllng, Morton, Uristow and unandler pretend to be confident in the success of their respective favorites. Many of Blaine's mends tains, that he will be nominated on the first ballot. If a man's strength may be estimated by the willingness of his mends to bet on nim, uiaine is by all odds the strongest candidate. Bets are freely offered on him again8ttba neid. iBawa oet ormf rruuareu aoi- lars made the other day that he would be nominated on the second ballot. Morton's friends are neither numerous, nor earnest. His chief support will come from the south. Brlstow may be strong elsewhere, but he has few sup- porters-nere. Veteran JKepuoncans say that no man with any self-respect, or respect for the party, would attempt to bring Bristow's name seriously before the Cincinnati convention as a candi date for the Presidency. "It would," say these veterans, "be an insult to the Republican party of the country, to pro pess as a candidate for tbe Presidency a man absolutely without a record." Zach Chandler has many strong friends among' the professional politi cians of tne republican party, because he is known to be an uncompromising partisan: which is the kind of man a politician likes. A good deal of work has been done for'him in aqaiotway,bnt it will Da oi no use. lao Cincinnati convention will not be very likely to nominate any man who cannot carry New York And that's the secret of whatever strength Conkling has. His friends claim that no man In the Re publican party has such a following in New York as Conkling: that the party in that State is proud of him; that the immense Federal patronage he has judl cioualy dispensed there for several yearB has given him immense strenctn: in short, that he is the only man who would have any show against Tilden in JNew York, should the latter receive the Democratic nomination. A short time ago it looked as if Conkling's nomintv tion was ail but certain. Grant had da clared for him, much to the chagrin of Morton and Chandler; and Blaine was thought to havo committed political sui cide by tailing forcible possession oi tne Mulligan letters, uontrary, ttowever, to the general expectation here, Blaine snatched victory from the jaws of death, and is more popular with his own party to-day than he ever was in his life before. If this sympathy with him which is apparent here has extended to delegates to Cincinnati, and does not wane before Wednesday, it may be strone enough to override all sober cal culation, and cause bim to b9 nominated on the first ballot; but If the delegates have hot caught the Blaine fever, or do not catch it at Cincinnati, and act solely with reference to party interests, it is more than probable that Conkling, backed by the influence of the adminis tration will be the Republican nominee, .T MAHn.FAOTlTKES 15 Court Street, Memphis, Check Hooks, Draft Boob &, Dray Boobs, Cash Boobs, ledgers, Jourimle BfULROAB & STEAMBOAT WOER Baslnern Core, letter Dead, BUI JIcntfB, Circulars, Xlc&eU, T39, Etc.
