The Appeal is bo well known to the peo ple of Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, -who hare been patrons and read ers for nearly forty yearn, that it is only necessary for us to say that it will continue the same policy which has placed it beyond controversy among the foremost journals of tho south. The probable election of Tilden will in rent the Democratic party with the fresh responsibilities which this great trust imposes, and the Appeal will zealously co operate with the National Democracy in the work of reform and reconciliation between the sections. Tho momentous events that will transpire during the year 1877 will im part unusual interest to a newspaper. Grave issues, full of thrilling interest, will be dis cussed and decided, and the Appeal will faithfully chronicle the events as they trans pire. The occurrences of the year will crowd upon each other, and the Appeal will give the history of the times.

We need not go beyond the financial state ments of the several southern States for proof of the capacity of the Radicals to cheat and 6 teal. These exhibits, which about this time will meet the public eye in the newspapers, are evidence speaking as loud as any fact can peak of their ability when left to them selves, to plunder without stint, and a will, so long as there is anything to steal and any one remains -willing to barter for the promises to pay which they filch from a poverty-stricken and over-taxed people. Over three hundred millions of dollars robbed from a people bankrupt by war is a monumental infamy so gigantic as to almost defy belief and tax the credulity of even the most willing and ardent of our friends at the north. There it stands, immense in its - proportions, every dollar of it with a special story of suffering and sorrow, borne for the most part uncomplainingly by those from whose unwilling hands it has been wrenched. As with their thefts, so with their lies. They have piled them mountains high in their efforts to hold the south in their thieving grasp, growing bolder and more eager, as one by one the victims released themselves from the thraldom in which they were held through the power of a party originally organized on hate of the south and southerners. From Francis Thompson to Eliza Pinks ton is a wide gap of ten years, but they have not failed to fill it to the traduction of a noble people, whose chief besetting sin is an opposition to Radicalism, proportioned to the crimes of its leaders. The States of the south, one by one, have been subjected to the bulldozing schemes of these creatures, fruitful as they have proven of lying, chicane and deceit, but finding these no longer productive as of old, that even their northern dupes can no longer be gulled by horrifying pictures of the rape of Frances Thompsons and the outrage of Eliza Pinkstons, they have engaged in a game of deception and,trick in which, by playing upon the supposed greed for official patron age of certain southern congressmen, they hope to win, as willing allies, the States tw had designed to retain in their -otinpt grasp forever. Hayes, it """d, and has been re peated for weeks, is eager for a compromise with. Lamar, Hill and Casey Young. He will give them cabinet appointments, will place at their disposal the Federal patronage of the south, and take them into his councils as leading advisers.if only they will "sell out" Tilden "give him away," to use the lan guage' of the street. No scheme of bar gain and sale ever devised equaled this in in famy. It is as base as its source, as wanting in honor and honesty as the party whence it emanated, a party as rotten as physically that leader of it from Indiana La to whom it owes most of the characterless attributes that be long to it. Having failed in stealing, and in lying, these affluent tricksters, who bank upon Hayes succeeding Grant as a twig of the party " tree which they can with least labor bend to their ways and use to their advantage, would willingly trade with the men they have most heartily denounced and held up for the hate of their section and their party as the sum total of all that to the fanatical northerner is objectionable and horrifying in the southern people. But in this they are doomed to fail ure. When in possession of our State gov ernments they could make bonds and trade them ad libitum through dishonest bankers, and so long as the people of the north were not affected by loss of trade growing out of the persecution of our people, they succeeded with their gigantic lies in bolstering public opinion and drilling the members of their party to their purpose, but they cannot buy our public men with place, nor poison our people with promises of public plunder. We have contended for principles that to us are sacred, and we have won. We have elected Tilden President of the United States fairly, and upon issues part of which embraced the lying and the thefts of Radical ism, and we will not surrender, stultify our professions, play traitor to the man who is our chosen chitjf and representative, and brand ourselvei for ever as unworthy of credence or belief. And what we will not do no one of our representatives will dare do in our name, or speaking in our behalf. The vic tory is ours. But if, by Radical chicanery .backed by a President who has degraded himself in office and disgraced the nation by low asso ciations and the employment of the most vil lainous tools in office, Tilden should be cheat ed beyond any present hope of peaceable re lief, having borne so far, we can bear a little longar, and wait the slow but sure and crush ing weight of time to avenge all our woes at once, lietter deleat with honor than a com promise at the expense of the friends who, in good and evil report, stood by us, who made their cause ours, who never flinched, and who, from a barren minority, built up Democracy in the general public eoteem, and made for us the majority which, in the house, has proven a !reakwater for the flood of Radi cal ibm. HOX. CAHEY XOVSU. Knowing our immediute representative in congress as we do, without any information from him personally, we took the responsi bility in the Appeal, on Sunday, to deny the sentiments attributed to him. It seems we were not mistaken in our estimate of thu man. Recent dixpatches from Washington announce that "the Hon. Casey Young, of Tennessee, has written a card correcting the misapprehensions growing out of an inter view published in the New York Herald. Mr. Young declares in conversation that he did not express the opinion that the Ameri can people, either north or south, would sub mit to the election of a President by fraud and his inauguration by armed force. He does not favor any affiliation, with Hayes, and says all his public action shall be with and in side the Democratic party. There is no rea son to suppose that Colonel Young occupies any other position from the other southern representatives." In these sentiments Colonel Young expresses tho views of his constituents whom he has served so faithfully, and who are proud of the shining record he has made in congress. The southern Democrat who can be cajoled into any conspiracy having for its ob ject the election of Hayes by the infamous schemes concocted months ago, commits pol: tical suicide. The southern people do not want Hayes. His honied words and shallow promises are snares and delusions. It is the spider inviting the fly into his beautiful par lor. Some one has characterized death-bed repentance as one who "has burned a candle in the service of the devil, and then snuffs the ashes in the face of the Lord." Hayes has spent the past sixteen years in the service of Radicalism, in originating, indorsing and ap proving every usurpation for humiliating and plundering the south. He has given us nothing but hatred, lies, bayonets, forged bonds, empty treasuries, mountains of debt and race hatreds. He endeavors:! to eecura his election by appealing to the passions of the north, by waving tho "bloody-shirt," by stigmatizing the southern people as assas sins, kuklux murderers, incapable of self rule, and as devoid of christianit y and civil ization as the savages of the wild mountains. But in his efforts to reach the Presidency by fraud, he transforms the southern people into saints. They cannot be caught by such chaff. The Democracy of the south will stand solid as a stonewall in support of the northern Democracy, who have so long labored for their deliverance. They had rather be swindled out of the Presidency than see Hayes elected by fraud and hypocritical pledges made only to be broken. Amid Rad ical corruption, usurpation and robbery the south has preserved her honor and she will not sell this for the infamy of contributing to the election of a defeated candidate for the Presidency by fraud. If Tilden is cheated out of the Presidency after a solid and united res'stancy on the part of northern and south ern Democracy, the Democratic party would be invincible before the country m future elec tions. The inauguration of Hayes by any treachery on the part of southern Democrats would disband the national Democracy, en gender an unappeasable hatred between the northern and southern Democracy, and the Radicals would obtain a new lease upon power, and the northern Democrats, cha grined at our treachery, would not lift a finger to save us from ruin. Any apostacy on the part of the south by which Hayes could secure power, would so disgust the northern Democrats that they would lose re spect for us, and would set up for themselves by washing their hands of the southern people who had not only shown them selves ingrates, but base enough to become cheats and swindlers. Moreover there are higher principles involved in this question than the mere division of the spoils of office. Hayes and Tilden cannot compromise as if the Presidency were a private law suit, or a disputed claim to a piece of property. No concession on the part of southern members of congress, base enough to sell out will give Hayes a valid title to the Presidency. The constitution and the law elects a President, and the frauds of the Louisiana returning board, composed of four knaves, cannot impose upon the nation a chief magistrate who has been repudiated by the people. THE BAILltOAD HORROR. Additional Particulars Names of Some of the Killed who Have Been Identified. A Careful Investigation to be Had Hiss More hard Probably Anions; the Killed Another -Accident. Ashtaiu a-,"' December 31. During the enti "y over one hundred men have-continued to labor, clearing away the debris of the wrecked train and bridge in Ashtabula river. There labor was rewarded by the re covery of only two more bodies, and some unrecognizable, burned pieces of flesh, and the belief is gaining ground that many of the passengers were totally or almost wholly con sumed. Intense excitement prevails, and scores of persons have arrived here from the east, and west in search of information regard ing missing friends. Little satisfaction can be given them. Teleerrams are also being re ceived asking for news of absent ones. The Ixjxes in the freighthouse containing the bodies were numbered to-day, and white paper labels placed on those that had been identified. There are thirty-six of these masses of charred and blackened flesh in the buildintr; of these the following are supposed to be identified: Mrs. E. Cook, Wellington. Maggie L. Lewis, St. Louis. Lucy C. Thomas, Buffalo. Isaac Meyer, Cleveland. Birdie Meyer, Cleveland. S. D. Waite, Buffalo. Clarence Gage, Charleston, Illinois. . M. P. Coggswell, Chicago. L. W. Hart. Cleveland. Dr. A. H. Washburne, Cleveland, rector of Grace Eniscopal church. L. J. Barnard, Buffalo. Miss Minnie Miker, Buffalo. Mrs. George Watson, of Huron-street hos pital, Cleveland. Mattie George, Cleveland. George A. Pennington, express messenger, Buffalo. John Pickering, Chicago. William Clemens, Bellevue, Ohio. Justice E. W. Richards was empowered to summon a coroner's jury, and the following citizens of A-htabula were selected: H. Watesson, G. W. Dickenson, H. H. Perry, Dwight Faulkner, E. G. lierce and F. A. Pettibone. Before the hearing of evidence, and after viewing the scene of disaster and the corpses, the coroner authorized the friends of the il ceased to remove the identified bodies to their homes. The jury then expressed their inten tion to institute a careful investigation into the causes of the accident. A. L. Stone, the brake man in the rear car who miraculously escaped unharmed, was the first witness examined. Thought there were one hundred and sixty persons on the train ; at the time of the accident the express was going at the rate of twelve miles an hour, a tittle faster than ordinary when approaching a bridge, owing to the snow; after the acci dent he ran to the depot to f jsa-ent the other train that he believed ww J Jowing, from cominp ahead; the cars were heated with Baker s heaters and stoves. Conductor B. Henn said the train consisted of a locomotive, smoker, three ordinary cars, dra win groom car, three sleepers and baggage car; thought there were one hundred and thirty-one passengers on board when the ca lamity happened; some "of the passengers think there were more. It is anticipated that trains will be run reg ularly on the line to-morrow. Passengers and baggage are being transferred around the -ha-m by sleighs, which have been in use all day to-day. Other witnesses were ex amined by the coroner's jury, but their testi mony does not differ materially from that of the conductor and brakeman. The jury ad journed at five o'clock until nine o'clock to morrow morning. They will continue their labors day by day, and will make an exhaust ive investigation into the causes of the acci dent. Ehik, Pa., January 1. An Ashtabula special to the Erie Dispatch mentions the fol lowing incident: "Miss Mary Berchard, of Favetville, Vermont, a cousin to Governor Hayes, was on the ill-fated train. The uncle from whom the governor inherited most of his fortune also willed Miss Berchard twenty thousand dollars. The three years allowed in which to settle up the estate and divide the property having) expired, Miss Berchard was on her way to take formal possession of her property. Her name does not appear in the list of saved, and she was probably killed. Her destination was Elvra, Ohio, where her sister, Mrs. Ronald Dev"itt lives." A Bridal Party Happowed to be among ' the VlctimM. Cincinnati, January 1. The Enquirer's Springfield special says that Prof. Henry G. Rodgers, principal of the high school of that city, and wife, are beiieved to be among the lost at Ashtabula. Prof. Rodgers was mar ried last Tuesday, went to Niagara, and ex pected to return to Springfield on Saturday night or Sunday morning. Not returning as expected, his friends made inquiry, and learned that the newly married pair left Buf falo on the ill-fated Pacific express. His relatives, who proceeded at once to Ashtabu la, have not yet been able to identify the re mains. Another Accident. Buffalo, January 1. A sleeper, the last car on the New York express, due here at a quarter past eleven o'clock this morning, was thrown off the track about twenty miles from this city. The occupants, a lady and gentle man and the porter, escaped injury. The breaking of the coupling was the cause of the accident. The car afterward took fire which was extinguished with snow by the people along the road. A OUT 1 1 CAROLINA BONDS. Important Meeting of Bondholders They will Take Fifty per Cent, of the Recognized Debt. Haifa Loaf Better than no Bread Bat the Ktate Is not Willing to dive More than, a Crumb.

There were issued during the war for internal improvements $901,000. The past due interest is $593,000. These last have "Confederate States" printed upon them and are all held in North Carolina. Bonds have been issued since 186i)Under acts passed before the war to the amount of $1,781,000. Their past-due interest amounts to $S07,000. Under acta passed since the war $2,015,043 has been issued, with past-due interest amounting $921,000. Eight years' inter est was due last October. Under the funding act of 1866, bonds for $2,417,200 were issued. The past-due interest on this sum is $1,158, 000. Under the funding act of 1868 bonds for $1,703,000 were issued. The past-due interest is $819,000. The special tax bonds (that have been repudiated by the State) amount to $11,407,000, the past-due interest on which is $4,898,000. The total debt repudiated and acknowledged is about $38,000,000. The recoimized debt. rnnciDal and interest, is about $21,500,000. None of the repudiated debt was voted upon at this meeting, which was quite important in its re sults. As with most other southern State bonds, there have been-endless disputes about these, many meetings of bondholders and many propositions. A State cannot be forced, as a municipality can, to come to a settlement of such debts, and the bondholders must make the best terms they can. Sanguine hopes were expressed at the meeting yesterday that that a settlement would be obtained upon the basis there proposes. Among the first work of the meeting was the passage of a resolution to the effect that in the opinion of the bondholders the bonds to be issued for funding the present recog nized debt should pay six per cent, interest, coupons payable in January and July at New York and Raleigh, and that the coupons should he received for taxes and all State dues. Another resolution was that the bond holders would take fifty per cent, of the prin cipal and interest of the recognized debt. This would bring the debt of the State down to about $10,700,000. A committee of five, of which Mr. J. E. Bonner is chairman, was appointed to visit Kaleign in the interests ol the bondholders. It was especially urged upon this committee to see the new governor before he wrote his inaugural message, as he might, from igno rance of the wishes of the bondholders of the debt, express views about it unnecessarily antagonistic to their interests. It is thought that the governor and a large part of the leg islature will agree to the fifty per cent, plan, but that a majority will hold out for better terms. The bondholders propose to adhere very stoutly to the fifty per cent. The State has made several propositions to them which they consider quite inadmissable. For instance, it offered to surrender all the improvements to them. But these would be useless to the capitalists. Again, the State offered to fund the whole debt at $4,000,000. This, at six per cent., would be. fifteen cents on tho dol- TELEGRANS. St. Louis.

The Confidential Clerk of Hom Tweed Met at Liberty on hia Own Recog nisance. New York, January 1. Albert A. Wood ward, ex-confidential clerk of Boss Tweed, who was arrested in Chicago some three months ago to answer to the indictments for forgery and embezzlement, and has since lain in the Tombs, was y;sterday discharged from custody on his own recognizance.

It appears that the attorney-general ordered the discharge of the prisoner on his own recognizance that he might testify for the people in the civil suits, ana also directed that he should not be rearrested upon the civil processes pending against him. No nolle prosequi has been en tered in the criminal cases, but it is under stood that should WoodwarM's testimony prove valuable, as expected, he will never be Drought to trial. ' FILLIDUSTERIXG REVIVED Preparations Being; Hade to Invade slower California Trouble Organising. San Francisco, December 31. There have recently been some vague rumors here of a filibustering expedition being organized to invade lower California, and the Chronicle this morning publishes articles stating that some two hundred men, well armed, ostensi bly established a colony in that country when, by preconcerted arrangements, they will be attacked by the Mexicans, which will inaugu rate trouble of such magnitude that either the United States government will be called upon to interfere, or the whole tier of northern Mexican States will join in declaring an inde pendent republic. In either case, the inva ders will be on band to reap any benefits that may arise, and having ostensibly acted purely in self-defense, there can no blame attach to them. On the contrary, the Alta this morn ing published an interview with the Mexican consul, Mr. Prichard, who states that all such rumors are mere newspaper sensations, made up of whole cloth. The King!
