MEMPHIS APPEAL TUESDAY MORNING, DEC. 19, 187C, B. IL HIIX, OF GEOKG1A. o dktin crushed champion of the consii' tution and Uie Democratic party has suffered so much injustice as this great Georgia states' man. He was opposed to scceseion, and has always been a conservative patriot in his news, but because, twelve months ago, he defended the south from the slanders of Blaine in the congress of the United States, he was called an extremist, and every Demo cratic demagogue who has been defeated as a candidate for re-election to congress at tributes the result to Ben Hill's "inflamma tory speech,," This is a paltry excuse. Hill, in liis creat speech, simply vindicated his peo ple and his section from calumny, and we have yet to learn that this is a crime in the opinion of the northern - Democracy. iTr. Hill is unquestionably one of the ablest men in congress, and is one of the mogt patriotic and conservative statesmen of the south His utterances in regard to the situation are characterized by more wisdom and pradence than the small-talk of the little men who condemned Sir. Hill's speech twelve months ago, and falsely attribute the reduced Demo cratic majority in the house of representa' Uvea to his earnest vindication of his con' stituents from the abuse of an unscrupulous assailant. In a recent interview Mr. Hill said: The Confederate representatives In coneress who have seen service feel, and keenly feel, the embar rassments oi tneir situation, xney are the suniects ot suspicion. This suspicion maybe considered somewhat natural. As a result of this feellnc they are sot Inclined to make themselves prominent or conspicuous In directing events, bat you may rely upon It that they will be calm, self-possessed and de termined to do what they can to secure a peaceful solution of the present difficulties. If war must come, it will not be tbelr fault And now let me add, emphatically, that, coma what may, the southern people will remain in the Union and true to the union. They have tried secession, and they know it bore no fruit but bitterness. They will never try It again. The people of the north, too, should know that the negro will receive from the southern people absolute protection in all his civil and political rights. The south has no prejudices against the negro; we charge none of our wrongs to the negro; It Is our Interest not only to protect the negro, but to do ell we can to educate and improve him; he Is a citizen, and It Is our Interest to make him an Intelli gent citizen; be Is a Iroeman, and It is our Interest to make him a worthy fraeman: he is a voter, and It Is our Interest to make Ulm a wise voter. This Is es pecially true because the fourteenth amendment In creases the rower of the south In the electoral col lege and In congress. We wculd not, therefore. It we could, take the right of suffrage away from the negro. The south is not airaia ot the negro; when sinister Influences are removed from him he Is do cile and easily governed, and, being a necessary ele ment In our society, we are also desirous that he should be an element of power with us. How favorably do these views contrast with the extreme utterances of the men who cen sure Mr. Hill for his noble defense of the southern people just one year ago. The equan imity of such men as Benjamin H.Hill great ly disconcerts the Radicals -who are seeking to. goad them into extreme utterances. Cool ness and forbearance seem to actuate Lamar, Hill, Gordon, "Withers, Ransome, and all Uie southern Democrats, and nothing disconcerts the Radicals more than to find it impossible to rouse the angry passions of these prudent men. This is commendable. It is the course of wisdom, and will, it is to be hoped, be persisted in until the present complications have been unraveled. Prudence is now de manded. Our opponents are eagerly hoping for some outbreak on the part of the south em Democrats In congress. Let them be dis appointed. The admirablejquipoise of Hill, of Georgia, and his southern coadjutors, ex torts surprise a well as commendation. Un der the most exasperating circumstances, the provocation of an infamous effort to prolong the rule of the carpetbaggers who robbed and plundered the south, they have acted with vonderful discretion. It is these men alone in the Democratic party who have counseled calmness and mod eration, and, more than that, have illustrated their own teachings. They know that in the fearful struggle for liberty Ihe Democrats have the right, law and precedent on their side. Under such circumstances they see that nothing can possibly be gained by a hasty and impetuous course on their part They have everything to win by keeping cool, as they are doing everything to lose by rant and bluster. The south for ten years has borne grievances calculated to try the pa tience of a people naturally impulsive, but in the midst of all these aggravations they have borne themselves like men. As the outrage p.-oposed is nothing new no worse than those which have burdened Uuouth for years our lievmg that relief will surely come. What Mr. Hill says in the above extract in regard to the negro, is eminently true. The tax paying white people of the south, the men of education and wealth, are not the men who have motives to resort to violence and mtimidation. The existence of peace is j a condition precedent to the highest pros perity and the most rapid advancement of any section or of any country. These men are the people of the southern States, and peace is absolutely essential not only to their pros perity, bat to their existence. Thus, if they were governed by no "higher motive than the most supreme selfishness, they ooulct not and would not commit or indorse these reported outrages. Then again, to suppose such a case, the whole southern people must be put down as brutal and cowardly. If the men who make these wholesale charges against the people of ihe south can imagine a condition of affairs in which the solid farmers and merchants of the north go prowling around nightly, commit ting murder on innocent men, women and children for political purposes, then they can imagine that the planters of the south are engaged in shooting negroes as a business and committing each outrages as would do honor to the French revolution. It is a reflection upon the people of this section which no intelligent or even sane man will permit for an instant It is a reflection on humanity itself, which differs very little in the same grades of society in all civilised countries. Considering, thui, the character of the men who compose that party in the south which pojte&ioc the motive and which prfjfits by these outrages; reflecting that these outrages are never beard of except in time of an election, and that always for the benefit of the one party and the consequent damage of intoHigeHce and wealth of ihe country have no motive, it is plain to be seen that these are manufactured tto order by accredited agents in tint section who are alien to its interest and opposed to peace. THE TKXXIISSEK CIXK. A boui-e of many lustonc stemone pleasantly situated, so as to overlook Court square, was opened hut night without cere mony, and dedicated to live uses of the "Ten- neaMec Club." All who were privileged to be present on the occasion expressed themselves highly gratified, as well at the taste, culture, and good common sense evidenced in the arrangements, appointment and furniture of the really beautiful house, as at the simplicity and absence of show and pretence which characterized the "house wanning." Mem phis has at last a club-house of which her citizens may be proud, and to which those who support it can invite guests from abroad, sore that the rooms of their palatial house will lose nothing by contrast with those of olden and more famous establishments of the same class elsewhere. Well ordered and ad mirably housed, resting on a basis of mutual obligation, the members of the "Tennessee have it in their power to make their club the focus and center of social interest in Memphis, and do for our city in that regard -what the chamber of commerce and cotton exchange have done in promoting and keeping 'alive arr activa commerce. In every other city in the Union there maybetoundone or more similar organ ization which, regarded as centers for the con centration of the community or home love, without which no place can thrive, have won the favor and affection of the masses. To the members of such an association the ben efits that flow from it are but slight compared with those which follow to the community, from the broad and generous spirit which is sure to be an outflow from the Tennessee. Especially will this be observable when dis tinguished personages from other States or nations, as visitors, are to be entertained, Hitherto that duty in Memphis has devolved upon a "desultory" few. Without arrogat ing anything not within its scope, or beyond the deservings of those who mako up its membership, the Tennessee club, -with its superior facilities and organization, can as sume that duty, and, when it feels disposed, can play the host for the city, whose pride it is destined, under good and wholesome man' agement, to become. As we understand, the Tennessee embraces in its list of membership representatives of every profession and every leading interest in the city gentlemen whom their fellow-citizens recognize among the first and most intelligent of their number, and to whom they would willingly commit their social guidance. We can therefore remit to them the duty of representation on important occasions, espe cially where the social and hospitable senti ment of the community is necessary to sup plement the popular good will or enthusiasm. We greet the Tennessee club, then, as the unit of the social fabric, and hope that it may live to become not only the pride of Memphis but an example of what all well conducted clubs ought to be. If it be managed in that spirit and up to the purpose of its founders it cannot fail to reach the good wishes and to become the parent of perhaps other equally promising and promi nent institutions. The Pulaski Citizen is another M the in fluential papers of the State that is outspoken for Isham G. Harris fpr United Slates sena tor, and it is equally so for John C. Brown, one of the ablest, purest and best of our pub lic men a gentleman to whom Tennessee owes much for valuable services as governor, and especially for the rescue of her finances from the chaos and confusion consequent upon Radical recklessness and squandering. The Citizen says; Ex-Governor Isham G. Harris stands nrMmlnent- ly at the head of the list of candidates for United States senator. His profound learning and great po litical sacacltr. counted with his Indomitable nerve and zeal, tempered by his great conservative Judg ment, will make him a power In the senate chamber. Our own little admiral little only In point of physi cal stature a giant In statesmanship Yfhltthome would yoke well with Harris, and the two would make a strong team. Next comes the able, the In corruptible, the eloquent bright, the Demosthenes of congress, and with him comes Bally, a man of genius and profound ability. Wo have plenty of good material. There Is no necessity for sending a man of mediocre talent to the senate. If any of these should decline or prove unacceptable, rather than have a second-rate man In the senate again, Tennessee had better call upon Governor John a Brown to sacrifice his nrlvate affairs, and the creat enterprise he Is now engaged In. to accept the posi tion. It would be a great sacrifice to him, but he Is a man who never falls In any emergency. He will probably not thank us for the suggestlan, but we are not writing for thanks now. A crisis Is upon us. We need the counsels and labors of our wisest men, our greatest patriots, our profoundest lawyers. He would probably decline a contest with any of the above gen tlemen for the position, and would undoubtedly pre fer not to enter the lists at all, but if the voice of Tennessee calls him to service in the national coun sel, he dare not decline. He is a man who never shrinks from duty nor falls to an emergency, and he Is made of the right kind of stuff for a senator lust now. No greater injustice has yet been at tempted upon any portion of the people of the south than that which is recorded in another column over the signature of the mayor of Grenada. It is a case for the prompt interference of congress, and ought to have the immediate attention of not only Democratic senators and representatives but of such Republicans as have not yet wholly succumbed ito the Mortons and Shermans. Even though the facts were as stated by the Radicals, there are courts to appeal to in Mis sissippi, wherein justice can be had, where the scales are as equitably balanced as in Massachusetts, Ohio, or New York, and where offenders are as certain of punishment. Be sides this, there is a fearless public opinion, always a potent corrective of flagrant evils, even when sanctioned (as is so often the case with Radical bulldozing governments) by those in power. We believe the statements of the mayor of Grenada to be true, and so believing, we ask the members of congress from Tennessee to make the case of his peo ple their own, and if possible find an inime- potseta their T't'Tlll ll'i m r, h I rrrnifdy for thf -"-mnff tVipy rompimn of. Tue Courier-Journal, in its money article on Saturday last, published the following, which wo think is a near approach to the proposition among many to be offered which will most likely be adopted by our legislature: It Is said that some of the holders of Tennessee State bonds will proposo-to the next legislature to Issue a new bond, having thirty years to run, bearing Interest at the rate of four per cent per annum for the first Ave years, live per cent, per annum for the next five years and six per cent ier annum for the remaining twenty years, with comions attached, which shall be receivable for taxes; the new Issue of bonds to be given lu exchange for the present out standing six ier cent bonds, dollar for dollar. The State Is amply able to pay Interest In full on the present debt at the rate of six per cent, but the bondholders had, perhaps, better consent to reduce th s rate to four per cent for five years and five per cent for the next five, rather than submit to longer postponement of payments ot Interest though it is an abatement which, perhaps, the State Is not under the necessity of asking.
