To the true oil reliable Demo- crtiU, mho look to party organization as the meant for attaining patriotic end, and who care nothing for jealousies and bickering of earomo office-seekers, this correspondence will be perused with minified emotion of re arret aad disgust. Wo ire on tbe threshold of tisree important elections in Siielbyconntj, aad the factious wfckti woa'.d disturb the bar anony of the Democratic party at as hinrlike the prtneot, Ly thmwlnjr firebrands into the orgaatzatios, will roll op a terrible account against themselves which will baukrupt them when forced to a settlement by an outraged nd indignant people. If tbe divisions of the Democratic party remit in tbe restoration of Radical rule in SJ4Vy county, the blame cannot be laid at the door of the. Appeal, Tor dunnir tbe past three weeks it has. with a energy that never faltered, urged, begged ad implored the party to unite in a ,bar aowious and impregnable phalanx.

It remains to be seen whether the Democracy ot Memphis will still rctnln the con trol of the dry government, or whether stagnant Radicalism, breeding In its bomm elluiy. sluiutLih things, shall again kiwi id to power. To keep Uowu and to sweap away this abomination. Is the mission ot Demorrjcy. It Is In be boped that at the meeting on Saturday next It atll make fast Its purpose and glvw permanent effect to Its ambition. On the twenty-seventh of November, the AprKAL again called attention to thia meet ing, and aaid : Let us deprecata an attempt to Introduce schism aud to bring about clsonranloitloa and dlidntegia llou tu the nuJis nf the oiganlzed Democracy of fcbelby aouuty.

It begged and implored tbe people to turn out. In obedience to the above cail the mass-meeting was held la-'t Saturday night, and as the Ap peal bad indorsed tbe call, it was in honor bound to sustain the action of the convention, and this it intends to do cordially and ear nestly, believing that a failure to do so would be treachery to the party. Those who bltim bercd upon their rights now come forward and atk the executive committee, legally ap pointed by a mass-meeting which had been advertised every day for nearly two weeks, to resign, thus confessicg that they are a bogus committee which obtained its position by a fraud upon the party. The honors conferred were not sought by tbe men who compose the executive committee. Most of them did not want tbe position, and would gladly resign and thus rid themselves of the labors of a thankless position, but they were appointed in an open, pnblic meeting which had been ad vertised day after day, and they bave too much self-respect to confess that they are po litical ituposters who have usurped the place to which they were legally appointed by all the usages of party law. While the Appjial ts pledged to the action of the recent mass me Xing, it would implore the executive com' inittee to make every just and proper conces 8 ion. ine mayor will bave control ot the polls oa the day of 'he election, so there it nothing to fear from that source. If the Democratic executive committee will divide the judges and clerks on the day of the pri mary elections what more can be asked? With such a division of the jndges and clerks who could be injured? The Appeal has no candidate for mayor or other municipal offi cers. It has written and published a volume in praise of the two most prominent candi dates for mayor, and it has never received a favor from either of them. So far as the petty aspirations of . men are con cerned, the Appeal is not a party.- Were we governed by mercenary motives, profiting by the ingratitude of the past, we would do like others who have en couraged the bickerings and then after the battle has been fought and won step forward and secure the spoils. But' caring mora for the harmony and success of the Democratic party than pecuniary considerations, we shall labor to beat the breach which threatens the destruction of tbe Democratic party in Shelby county. A patriotic concession will reunite the party and cause it to move on in harmony together for the promotion of the common good. Let the bone of contention be re moved, not by forcing the legally constituted xecutivd committee to resign in ignominy and shame, bat by meeting it in friendly council and agreeing upon a programme which will do justice to all the aspirants and injustice to no one. Further divisions will give the Republicans and the chronic haters of Democracy a chance which they are not likely to , neglect. We call upon the Democrats of Memphis and of Shelby county to come forward and pnt an end to this unseemly scramble. A dozen good men. who bave no interest to subserve save tbe harmony and success of the Democratic party, can meet together and suggest a com promise which will reconcile the unfortunate feud. Let every Democrat, in discussing this question, remember that a harmonious can vass and a sweeping victory in January next will give the coup d graet to Radicalism, in tho other two important elections for August and November. It will prevent a revival of the color line in politics, and promote a ho mogeneous, united and progressive commu nity, looking to the future for prosperity. Let not the grave and overshadowing con siderations be lost sight of. We therefore urge every Democrat to aid in closing up the breach which, if not healed, destroys the Democratic party of Shelby county. PERSONAL. Mu. akd Mrs. Thomas H.

Mr. Butler suggested that the house adjourn until tbe tenth of Jauuaiy, because the eighth of January was a good o.d Democratic holiday, being the anni versary ot Jackson's victory at Mew Orleans, and the house would probably sojourn over tnat uay at any rate. Mr. Wood penned that If bis friend would follow all tbe Democratic precedents he would have no ob jection to the extension. Tbe resolution, after being amended as sug gested, passed. The speaker then called on the committee for re ports of a private nature, and the bouse then went Into committee of the whol. , Mr. Burchard llll.l in the chair, on the private calendar. At three o'clock the committee rose and reported a number of pri vate bits favorably to the house and they were passed. On motion of Mr. Knott tbe senate amendment to the bill for be relief of the sufferers of the wreck of the Huron was concurred In. Adjourned until Monday. - - ' Srnate. Senator Sargent from the committee on naval affairs, reported with an amendment bouse bill for the relief of Ihe sufferers by the wreck of tbe United states steamer Huron. The amendment provides for the payment to tbe heirs of the lost twelve months sea pay; ti the heirs of Captain Guth rie, ol the life-saving a-rvlce, one year's pay, and to the heirs of those belonging to the wrecking steamer B. and J. Baker, lost In attempting to save those on the Huron, one hundred dollars eacb. The amendment was agreed to and the b 11 passed.

Agreed to. At the exptrattou or tne morning urnir senator Mitchell called up tbe bill, recently introduced bv him, for the construction and completion of tbe Northwest and Pncne railroad, for the purpose of having It referred to the committee on railroads, and exDianatlon.oi tne Din spo&e at couaiueraoie length. tmuator Thurman spoke briefly, and the bill was referred to the comm tlee on railroads. The bouse resolution to adjourn for the holidays from December 15th to January 10th was agreed to. Senator Mathews called up th-t concurrent resolu tion, submltti-d by him yesterday, In regard to tbe payment of the principal and Interest of tbe gov ernment bonds In silver cola, aud, after it had been read, he said that It was Uls Intention to submit some remarks this afternoon In regtrd to the resolution before moving Its reference to the committee on finance, but at tbe req iest of several senators be would allow It to lie over until Monday, and would then call It up and have something to say in regard thereto. COMMITTEE WOBK. The bouse committee on ways and means, after nrepailng a resolution for reference to appropriate committees of the various subjects embraced In the President's message, took up tbe Question as to what scope should be given for investigations by tbe pros ent house. Considerable discussion ensued, aud the subject went over to the next meeting. - The house committee on appropriations had under consideration the senate amendments to the defi ciency bill. The superintendent of the railway mall service was heard In advocacy of the senate provision for postal railway clerks, etc; and Second-Assistant Poim aster-General Brady stated his view In regard o making an additional appropriation of five hun dred ihousand dollars lor the Star mall service. It appears that the postmaster general and Mr. Brady do not consider the Star appropriation of Dressing importance at the present time, and tbe committee will probably report against concurrence. Tbe bouse committee on foreign anairs took up for consideration to-day the question of our relations with Mexico, as affected, or likely to be affected, by tbe military policy of having raiding parties into Texas pursued across tne border and punished by American troops orrMexlcan soli. Ueneral Ord re Iterated his statements made to the committee on military affairs. WOMEN ATTORNEYS. Mrs. Belva A.

The bill Introduced la the house to-dav bv Mr. Stephens tut), amendatory to tbe Texas and Pacific railroad act, authorizes the construction of a main line from Fort Worth to the ship-channel In the bay of San Diego. The amount of bonds allowed by the bill Is tweut-Sve thousand dollars per mile and for difficult and mounudnous sections, thirty-five thou sand dollars per mile, all secured by a fir-t-mortgage on tbe road, and ou all the twelve million acres of land granted by the United States and acquired from tbe State ot Texas. The aggregate amount of bonds issued is not to exceed thirty-eight million seven hundred and nity thousand dollars, said bonds to be payable, principal and Interest, In gold, and run nfty years. THE MEXICAN QUESTION DISCUSSED IN CABINET. Affairs on tbe Rio Grande and our relations with Mexico formed the subject of cabinet consideration to-dav. The secretary of war stated that messurs had been taken regarding the disposition of tbe troops on the Texan border. Nothing was Intimated at the meeting regarding a fear of serious troubles, as all the advices from Mexico are of a friendly character. The removal ot the Mexican troops near to the border Is In the Interest of peace. Tbe ques tion ot tbe recognition of the Diaz government will soon be taken up and considered. Walter H. Kreuch, of Massncousetts, tally clerk of the house of representatives, has been removed, and Albert Lamar, of (ieorgla, appointed in bis place, GENERAL ITEMS. Tie Republican s-Miators went Into caucus to-day to consider the proposition for tbe election ot a new serceaiit-at-arms. Charges were submitted against tieneral French to the effect that he has displaced Republican employes and given thsir positions to Democrats. Frienas of (ieneral French deny that there Is anything In the charges and ask for a com mittee to Investigate them. Tbe suggestion was agreed to, and Senators Jones, Howe and Cameron i pa. J were opnointed to make the investigation. There seems no probability that those wbo desire prompt action on the sliver bill wl.l con-ent to a re cess commencing early, as proposed by the house on the fifteenth Instant. Several prominent senators say that the recess will not begin before the twenti eth or twenty-first Instant. tjtone I'd. Auburn, N. Y.. December 7. John C. Collin, alMt Harvey N.

The report was adopted. The bouse committee report, alter a careful exam ination of tbe subject of the resolution In tbe light or tue ninth section or tne intra article oi tne con stltutlon. a malorltv ot the committee are of opinion thai the Inrlalature Is restricted tir ths terms ot the governors proclamation to me accept in to or rejec tion of tbe proposition made by Ihe arbiters at the conference had In New York In March, 1H77. to ad just the State debt, by the Issuance of new six per cent, bonds at a rate of sixty per cenr, of tbe total amount of principal and past -due interest; to levy a tax sufficient to meet tbe Interest on the new bonds. and to provide a sinking fund for the extinguish ment ot the debt; for the more efficient collection of the revenue, and to provide, by appropriate legisla tion, ior tne expenses oi tne general asaemoiy. Mr. Phelan submitted a minority report asserting that under the constitution and governor's procla mation the general assembly has power under the constitution to adjust the State debt upon any basis or nguie whatsoever. Ths minority report Is signed by Messrs. Travis, Phelan. Peters and Collier. Another report was submitted by Messrs.

In the senate Mr. Ragland Introduced a bill to fund the debt at fifty cents, the bonds to bear lour per cent. Interest. Mr. Maudox introduced a resolution to relect the sixty-cents proposition, and moved to suspend the rules, wnicn was tost. It is now pretty definletly understood that tbe legislature will remain In session tbe constitutional tiventy days. If not prolonged beyond that data MACIIAIIOX Will Net KaUrely Hellnqnih bin Hold ea the New nialatry A - ml-Offl-elal Document Indicating the JLatewt Phase. Paris. December 7. The following semi official note Is published: The president having ac cepted the conditions on which M. Dufaure agreed to ior am new cabinet. Dad on nis part asaea as nis sole condition that the ministers of war, nun Ine and forehin affairs should retain their offices. No diffi culty ought. It would seem, tu have arisen on this point, as it nis ueen a imiueu unuer an previous mlnist les that these departments should. In the In terest of the country and the army, be placed beyond tue reach t f parties. At tbe last moment, however, these portfolios have been claimed b the projected ministry. The marshal nas not been able to agree to this modlllcatton. which appears to him advene to tbe good organization of the army and tbe con tinuing ot diplomail j relations. Negotiations con sequently being broken oft M. Dufaure has been re lieved of tbe mission of forming tbe cabinet and M. Batble Is entrusted therewith. The note In which M. Dufaure and his colleagues announced tbelr Inability to agree to tbe marshal's condi tions stated that whtle chief of the parliamentary cabinet hn could not consent to three colleagues be ing placed beyond his control; still when the ques tion of principle was onre setll-d President Mac Mabon's preferences would probably be taken Into serious oonslueratlori." President MacMahon's determination to Insist upon having the nomination of three ministers seems to have been very sudden. Thus, on Thurs day, after discussing this question with M. Du faure, he concluded with these words: "After all. you are responsible and consequently I leave you free In tbe choice of your colleagues." M. Dufaure was afterward much surprised to find that the mar shal had changed his determination. IN BRIEF. Turkish reinforcements are en route to Erzeroum. F. A.

Learned, of Boston, a drummer for a bouse In that city, committed suicide In Cincinnati yesterday, shooting himself In the breast with a pistol. . , . President MacMahon's submission, says a Parts telegram, is due to the firmness of the Orlean Ist senators, who resolved not to suppoit a second dissolution. Near Toledo, Ohio, Thursday nignt W.

There was very llltie Insurance. Rumors of Earl BeaconGeld's resignation ot the premiership are again circulating In London, and that Lord Derby, secretary of state for foreign aepartments, will succeed to the premiership, and the Marquis ot Salisbury, secretary ot state for India, will succeed Lord Derby. In the South Carolina legislature yesterday a resolution to forward the Investigating commit tee's report in reference to Senator Patterson to Washington, was referred hi the senate to the com mittee on Federal relations. A motion Instructing the committee to report back the resolution In five days was defeated by a large majority. The Russians say it is better to continue war than to conclude a patched-up peace, which will sooner or later make another war necessary. Russia must obtain an autonomy for tbe christian popu lation, independence for Roumanla and Servla, gain of territory for Montenegro, and for Russia tbe pos session of Batoum and Kara, and the free naviga tion ot the Dardanelles. A New York telegram contains the follow ing Interesting Items: "In the court proceedings yesterday In connection with Robert C Case, tbe convicted president of the Security life Insurance company. It turned out that William C. Oilman, now a convict In tbe state prison, was one of the grand Jurors who indicted Case. F. S. Lambert, president of toe Peoples Ute lnsur tnce company, and now on tilal for a Stste prison offense, was called yesterday as a Juror In one of the criminal courts. He was excused."

An application lor a receiver for the German savings bank, Oreene baum Brothers, was made In court to-day. and argument will be beard this evening, when, as Greenebaum does not oppose the appointment of a receiver, the concern will doubtless be put In charge of such an officer. No receiver has as yet been ap pointed for the German national bank, and there Is a probability that the officers wlU wind Us affairs up themselves. Murdered rer Meney. Cleveland. 0., December 7.

He was immediately taken to Leb anon and placed in jail. A great deal of ex citement is naturally manifested concerning the attempted outrage. Burns is a dark mu latto, about nineteen ears of age, waa reared in Lebanon, and has for sometime past been staying at Lewis's livery stable in that town. He is considered a bad negro, and this is his second attempt oi the kind.
