A prominent banker of Memphis, in whose judgment we- placa great confl uence, haa called our attention to an atle erticle in the New York Commer cial and Financial Chronicle, showing 'how government affects business." The article is exhaustive, and takes a philosophical view of the question die cussed. Nothing but its great length precludes its publication in tho Appeal, which we regret, as it demonstrates how tiia business of the country is affected by the govern man t, and the necessity of business men laboring to secure-, good government. ' Here is one of the reasons which tho Chronicle gives, shewing how "government tffects business:" Another important and sensitive con nection between congress and busintps is the "southern qusstion," as it is called. This veiy week the country has seen one of tho senators from Massachusetts a State we are all proud of propose "to re i and the Rtatn of Mississippi to a terrioil cond'tijc!" Surely such a EUggetUon shows that the writer of that report has not one qualification for h!s pes tlou. "Ve know that is a strong ex- rre-f'n. nut a person wuo can so care. lesslv, flippantly talk about revolution izing a Slate government, putting it into a condition or anarchy, ror the pallry reasons suggested, exhibits a weakness scarry cred b!e, and utter want of ap preciation of tho business interests of tho country. Tb.3 proposition to territorialize a sovereign State of this Union in the in-tere3-of party corruptTonitts, has seri ously affected the business of the coun try. It impresses business men with apprehensions that our institutions are unstable, and that the countiy Is in a chaotio state, threatening revolution. A country tossed by lempeets and Hablo to such upturnlngs of the great deep, as would follow the outrige proposed by Uautweli, is as Irjuriim to the bueinees interests of tho country as the wide ppresd frtui and corruption which has dsluged the land.

To enow "how government affects bus! nes3" the subject so ably discussed by me financial unroniclewe have only to refr to the fact that, although it is. eleven years since the war closed with the triumph of tho Union arms, little program, comparatively speaking, hss been made In the south in tho direction cf repairing the ravages made by the war. li these years had been r mploycd us they might have been, the southern demand for northern manufactures and obtaining a due weight in the manage ment of their own local oflaire.

The business men of the coantry, the popular masses of all classes and races, leaiize "how government afficta business," and they are deter mined on reform, totlrive from power the plunderers who have broucht so much dissatisfaction and distress upon the country, by electing 8amuel J.

"The thanks of the nation are due to Congressman Whltthorne, of Tennessae, chairman of. the naval committee," is the way the Brooklyn Eagle, a leading paper of the north, speaks cf. our distin guished congressman, "for the great skiD, patience, industry, and impartial ity with which he has conducted the in vestigation of his very able committee into the naval frauds of the govern ment." And so thought his constitu ents, for they have nominated, and will re-elect him to the place where he has made himself so npfjl. Whitthorne hits certainly made himself a national reputation.

The orders issued to General Sherman to hold all the available force of the ar my ready for prompt service in the southern States.inviewof the approach ing rreeiaeutiai election, gives ns3 to the intetestlng inquiry as to what num ber of men are actually at bis disposal for that pnrpesa. General Sheridan has stated that he was obliged to Btrip every post from the line of Manitoba to Texas in order to reinforce Terry and Crook. Even troops have been ordered from California to the Yellowstone, and they havo no doubt by this time reached the theater of hostilities. Tue southern States, excepting Texas, have quartered in them two regiments of artillery and five of infantry, aggregating thirty-five hundred men, and in Texas, principally along the Rio Grande frontier, are thiee regiments of cavalry, seven companies of artillery, and four regiments of in fantry (two of the latter Being colored), aggregating thirty-three hundred men. Tne garrisons in the reconstructed States have not been disturbed in consequence of the war against the Siour. They re main bt the strength above stated. On the Pacific coast there are one regiment and two troops of cavalry, eight compa nies oi r rmiery, ana two regiments or infantry, and in Arizona the Sixth cav alry and Eighth Infantry. It may be stated that the presence of a considera ble military force Is necessary in Texas to protect the people against Mex icans and Indian marauders; and there ie, also, a necessity for occupying at all times several forts and posts In the States and Territories bordering on the Pacific. The total nu-nberofmen in the organization of the army, including staff corps of engi neers, ordnance department, military academy, men not attached to regi ments, hospital stewards, etc., is about twenty-eight thousand two hundred; but the organization, by regiments and companies, is only twenty-five thou sand, uenerai Sheridan, after the great est exertions, has beea able, according to his own statement, to give Tetry and Crook three thousand five hundred men, which General Sherman thinks are "quite as many as can be maintained on the Big Horn." garrisons in the south. Comprehending the value of the fig ures just mentioned, an estimate can be formed of the available force of the army "not now engaged in subduing the tavugea on the western frontier," "for protecting all citizens, without distinc tion of race, color or political opinion, in the exercise of the right to vote." The appended exhibit explains itself : Strength of the regular army. 25,CC0 Stationed In reconstructed mates. 3.500 htatloned In Texas . 3 ,203 Stationed In Pacific States . 1!,3U0 Sta loned In Arizona . I,b00 Operating against the Sioux 3,500-13,000 Distributed In other localities 11,400 Ganeral Sherman has, it appears, a con siderable force to draw upon losthe event of it being deemed proper to increase the southern garrisons. It is admitted jthat there will be no occasion for keeplrg troops in Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, Arkansas, or even Alabama. These States are. certain for the Democracy: but Louisiana, Mississippi, jbiorlda and South Carolina are to receive special at tention. Indeed, General Sbetman has HllCHUT Uviuuiouvwl tirfvuiUVB BOIUIB'K lrom Georgia into South Carolina. On the seventeenth instant (two days after the issue of the order to distribute and station troops) a company of the Eight eenth infantiy was transferred by his direction from Atlento, Georgia, to Edgefield, South Carolina. The inter esting matter Is that with over ten thou sand men not engaged in serious mili tary work, it has been found necessary to Increase the army; and, still further, that it is within the power of the gen-eral-in-chief to concentrate within the boundaries of fcur.orfive States of the Union, prior to an important election, from seven thousand to eight thousand regular troops, for the avowed purpose of meddling with the people in the exercise of their right of voting. AVAILABLE CAVALRY. Commencing with the cavalry, ic will be found that General Sherman has available "to render prompt assistance in the enforcement of the law" in the southern States the First regiment, sta tioned in uaiirornia, one troop of which is now e7i route toward the Atlantic; three companies of the Second, also on the Pacific slope, the other nine troops being now in the field againt the Sioux; two troops of the Third in Nebraska; nearly the entire Fourth, whose place in the Indian Territory has been very re cently supplied by seven companies of artillery from the eastern States, and its commander, General M'Kenzie, ordered north, and the Ninth cavalry (colored), stationed in New Mexico and Kansas. The transportation of a considerable por tion of this force to the reconstructed States could be very speedily effected, and as there are no mounted troops in that locality there would seem to be some probability that a transfer will be made. The Sixth regiment, serving in Arizona, could not -be safely removed; the Apaches are still dangerous, but men could be temporarily withdrawn from other posts on tho Pacific coast without much risk to the public safety in that quarter. Over one thousand cavalry might be easily concentrated at Colum bia, Baton Riuge, Holly Springs, St. Augustine or Charleston, within a month. AVAILABLE ARTTXTjERY. Three of the five artillery regiments are stationed in northern States. Re cently, however, four companies of the First, from Newport; Rhode Island, and three of the Third, from Nev York har bor, were transferred to Fort Sill, In dian Terrlton. and four comanniesof tho Fourth, from San Francisco, were sent to join L.TOCK on me Yellowstone. It has to be bcrne in mind that an artlllfirv regiment consists of twelve companies. uuiy two oi wuicu are mounted and pro vided with batteries; the others are equipped and act as infantrv. One bat tery of each regiment Is stationed per manently at -Fortress Monroe, which constitutes tho school of artillery, and which is also an excellent nolnt tn hv distributed and stationed for operation if necessary in North Carolina a highly trained and effective body of soldierj.

Aa stated above, four companies of the Fourth artillery are en route to join Gen en 1 Crook, two companids cf the regi ment are stationed at Silki, Alaska, and three companies occupy the fortifi cations In the bay of San Francisco. Outside of the two artillery regiments Jn the south, about seven men from this army are available under S:cretary Cameron's letter to General Sherman, of the fif teenth instant. That portion of the infantry which may be considered available is scattered over the country, from the confines of Iiwa and Misourl, through Kansas, O lorcdo and Utah. No Indian disturb ancea exist in this region, and the troop3 have little else to do than guatd public property. A very considerable portion of the infantiy stationed this Bide of the Rocky mountains, not engaged, in tho Sioux war, could, with no great eff-rt, be poured into a given locality, nlch as contemplated by General Grant in his recent instructions to Sherman. The location of the several r giments, with exceptions before stated, are given ac cording to their numerical designation. The First infantry is stationed in Da kota, with headquarters tt Fort Ttan dall, close to the Id a a boundary line. Three companies of the Fturth are with General Crook. The headquarters with two companies are aSFcrtBridger, near Salt Lake. The remaining five companies are In Wyoming Territory. Four companies of the Sixth infantry are with General Terry. A strong col umn of this regiment is at Port Bufoid, at which point a depot for the Yellow stone river has been established. Five companies of the Ninth are sta tioned in Nebraska. The other five are with Crook. The Fourteenth garrisons the posts In Utah. Six companies, with headquar ter, are at Camp Douglas. The Fifteenth infantry is stationed in New Mexico, far removed from the scene of Sioux hostilities. Three companies of the Seventeenth form a portion of Terry's force. Seven companies occupy forts in Dakita. The headquarters and two companies of the Nineteenth Infantry are at Fort Lyon, Colorado, and one company at each or the rouowtng posts in Kansas: Fort D dee, Fort Wallace, Fort Lamed. and Fort Hays. Two comtanies are at Camp Supply, Indian Territory, and one at Fort Elliott, Texas. The headquarters of the Twentieth is at Fort Snelllng, Minnesota. Oao com pany is at Fort Ripley, two at Pembina, three at Fort Abraham Lincoln, one at Fort Seward, and one at Fort Aber- cromble. No part t.f this regiment is engaged in the operations against Sit ting JJUU. Six companies of the Twenty-second infantry are with General Terry. The headquarters remain at Fort Wayne, Michigan. One company, B, is at Fort Porter, New York; one company, K, at Fort Brady, Michigan, and one compa ny, at Fort Macinac, Michigan. The headquarters of the Twenty-mud infantry is at Omahs, Nebraska, Six companies are stationed at that point. One company is at each of the following points: Fort Hartsuff, Nebraska; North Platte, Nebraska; Cheyenne depot, Wyoming Territory, and Jt1 ort Kussen.

THE DI5CUSNIUN AT TKEZE- VANT. GenernI A. W. Campbell in the Field lie Achieves n Brilliant: Trlnmph. From an Occasional Correspondent of the Appeal, i TreZevant, August 25. On last Sat urday there was a discussion at Trezavant between the Ex .Republican member of congress.exfcolonei in the Federal army during the late war, I. R Hawkins, and General A. W. Campbell, of Jackson, in regard to the repudiation of the national and State debt, Colonel Hawkins advo cating and General Campbell opposing repudiation. Colonel Hawkins is a law yer of acknowledged ability, and has been for yeais, but he had such a weak cause that he appeared to great disad vantage. Colonel Hawkins contended that the State bonds were issued with out authority and were void. Ho said that Mr. Jefferson said that one geneia tion could not create a debt to bind an other generation. He read from the "Declaration pf Rights" to show that the legislature had no right to isiua bonds. In regard to the Federal deb , he said it had been improperly and wrongfully, created; that the govern ment had on several occasions repudi ated its obligations and had taken from the southern people the" means of pay ment without ecs'aving themsalves. General Campbell, in reply, said that neither he nor his party the Demo cratichad anything to do with con tracting this debt; that perhaps it was all or more than Colonel Hawkins said it was; but we had solemnly agreed in all our conventions to pay this debt, and we had sworn to sup port the constitution of the united states, and the fourteenth amendment, which, made this debt ob ligatory on u, and we cpuld not violate our plighted word and our oath. Colonel Hawkins knowa, said General Camp bell, that this debt must and will be paid, and Is he trying to play the part of the cuttle-fish by muddying the waters in discussing this question, so as to draw our attention from the extravagances and corruptions of the Republican par ly. The interest on he national debt, said he, vras only one hundred million dollars per annum, while they had col lected in Federal taxes an average of four hundred and fifty millions a vear up to 1870. The tariff alone drew from Tennessee twelve million dollars a year, while tho whole of our 8tate tax was only a million and a half per annum. General Campbell showed that the Re publican party created the main dobt of Tennessee, and that the debt created by the people, Whigs and Demo crats, before the war, was well secured. They had these asset", and applied them to the payment of the Radical debts. He showed that the leg islature had the right to issue bonds to build railroads and turnpikes, and the State capitol, and these were tho tonda now outstanding. He sustained 16 po sition by irrefutable arguments, and by a citation of legal authorities. He said it was not the State taxes, but the Fed era! taxes which were ruining tbecoun fry. The people, he said, were deriving far more benefit from these i oi pi o ve in en ts each year than the whole of their State taxes. General Campbell's speech was full of eloquent sentences and fer vent appeals to their . patriotism and State pride, and hrought down thunders of applausa. We cannot follow him through his whole speech. To be appre ciated It must have been heard. The people were with him heart and soul. East club Colonel A P.. Reid, o"f Madlsor, is a candidate for the State senate. The Democrats ot the i eoond asnato rial district have nominated Mr. Dinny, of Sulliyan county. Kucxville Chronicle: The Conserva tives r.f Washington uouuty have nomi nated Dr. A. S. N. Dobson fcr the legis lature). Colonsl George C. Porter, of Brownt villo, is a candldato for 11 mier, to repre sent the counties of Madison, Haywood and Hardeman in tho next legislature. Joseph Wiiti of Ja-nes county, has been nominated by the Republican con vention at Smith's X roads as a candi date for joint representative for Cumber laud, Ruea, Meigs and Jam:s counties. Greenville New Era (Rep): The Democrats of this congressional district have finally concluded to hold a conven tion to nominate Hon. Wm. M'Farland for congress and some "dough-face" for elector. Knoxville Tribune: Msjorll H In gersoll, of Greenville, Is promlnenily spoken of for elector from the first con gressional district. He is a fine speak er, a true Dsmocrat, and would add stiength to the party ticket. Sbelbyyille Commercial: Governor Porter's msjority over Horace Maynard in 1874 waa forty-seven thousand; how much it will ba over the nominee of the Radical party in 1876 is for the Democ racy of Tennessee to decide. Here is how tho Knoxville Trltune puts it: Fro to and Etheridge may be new regarded as the leaders of the Re publican patty in this State. They w ill no doubt be pleasantly remembered &a old favorites of the East Tennessee Republicans. Chattanooga Times: Renegades who conceal a large amount of lifelong Re publican principles about their persons are at a premium in the Republican market. They b ing batter figures than disappointed oifice-seeksrs, so Foote beats Etheridge. Hartsville Sentinel: Hon. H. Y. Rid die was in town yesterday, circulating among his friends and the people gene rally. He seems to have stood the hot spell and hard work in Washington very well, and is anxious and sanguine about going back again. Greenville Publ'c Opinion : Greenville will be a lively place for tho ensuing month. We arc to have a congressional convention, two county conventions,the fair, a tournament ball, Presbyterian svnod. If John Robinson will just come along with his -show now we shall be happy. Knoxv.lle Tribune: General William Cullom, of Acderson cotmty, in a brief speech at Wartburg, the other day, an nounced himself aa a candidate for con gress in this district. No action bas yet been taken by the Democratic party in this district in regard to the congres sional canvas?. Hartsville Sentinel: There seems to ba a perfect muddle in the Democratic party In Macon as to the primary eleC' tion for floater. Stuffed ballot-boxes are insinuated on both sides a convention is talked cf, another candidate is expected out, and confusion a leetlo worse con fouuded threatens. Jackson Dispatch : The announcement of Mr. Caleb M'Knight, of Pinson, as a candidate to represent this county in the lower bouse of the next general assem bly appears in this is-me of the Dispatch. On the question of State finances he is in harmony with the people, favoring a lower rate of taxation than at the pres ent rate. Ripley News: A response to a call made upon Captain W. D. Wilkerson a short time since to become a candidate for State senator Is to be seen in this isEue. Our sistor counties, .Haywood and Dyer, havo both beed favored with tcandlnates for this honorable position, and we have no doubt they will cheer fully accord to EauderJale the tame privilege th s year. r Greenville New Era (Rap.) : From all 'parts of the district we have the good news, that Hon. James H. Randolph will get a lfniled vot in tho Republican party this will elect him by a large ma jority, and the friends of the Union can once more rejoice that the first district which sent so many "Union boys" to Kentucky in 1861-3 to preserve "this country, has been redeemed from the stigma of electing a Democrat to con gress. Chattanooga Times, 26th: Mr. Gib son, of Campbell county, late a member oi the legislature of this State, and a ycung man of considerable mustache and small brain, addressed the Hayes and Wheeler club, at City hall, last nigbt, in a very weak, very slangy, very dirty, and very uogantlemaniy har angue. His language in geneial, and bla anecdotes in particular, were better adapted to a slum bar-room crowd, or a brothel, than Euited to the.ears of decent people. Brownsville States: While the con vention last Saturday instructed its del. egates for Colonel Lea, it took no action whatever in regard to the fioatorlal and senatorial aspirants, but' left the dele gates free to exercise their own choice in tho matter. This waa eminently proper, as our county has true Demo crats in the field far fl jater Colonel George C. Porter and Mjor Willo Hay wood and it would have caused serious embarrassments to attempt an Instruc tion of delegates. We inderse the ac tion of the convention in this particular respect. Chattanooga Commercial- (Rep): There ia a chance yet for Republicans to save their honor and prove their eour age. Let some honest and capable man, known to be a sincere R publican, an nounce himself a candidate for gover nor, and go at once before tho people He can keep the party together as a State organization, and by a thoroush joint canvass he will get the hallota so well divided that James D Porter, If elected at ail, will never cease wonder ing how in the world bis majority came to be so Bmall. The Jackson Dispatch, alluding to Major W. J. Sykes's speech in that town, says: Although our views are not exactly in harmony with those of Mr. Sykes in reference to the rate or taxation which should be adopted in Tennessee, we are not insensible to the value of hia public service?, especially in the great cause' of internal improvement. He is an energetic and indefatigable advocate of railroads as the mo3t certain means of developing our wonderful resourcea as a Stale. Hals one of our best citfzsns, and we hope he will one day reap the reward of bis untiring labors. Chattanooga Commercial (Rep.) : We do not like the failure of this body to nominate a candidate for governor. All that we knew of the political condition of Tennessee previous to the holding of tne convention leu io the conviction that it was the bounden duty, as wall as the best policy of the Republican party, to make a nomination for governor, and cmteat overy inch of ground with the Democracy in the present canvass. We believed then that a man equal to the dignity of the position could make Por ter's re-election a very doubtful event. 'COMPLETE COTfOrl CLMNER.
