BE KOI I'M. llajtfr Flippin ia trying to create the im pression that he ia a poor, persecuted inno cent. Before the close of this canvass we in tend to show that he is a traitor to the party thai made him all he is. lie is one of that class of persons who invoke party organiza tion when it subserves his purpose, bat re pudiates it when another is to be the recip ient of party honors. John R. Flippin an nounced himaelf as a candidate for criminal court judge in 1870. He invoked all the ma chinery of the Democratic party to secure his nomination. Two years ago he announced himself a (.rjdulate for mayor. He went be fore the Democratic convention and was again honored with the confidence of his party. But a few week since he saw that John John ton would defeat him in convention, and now he comes forward and repudiates the machin ery which made him all he is, and resorts to the mock heroics of the demagogue who seeks to create the impression that he is a wronged and persecuted individual. The Democracy of Memphis will teach him that the creature is not greater than the creator. In announcing himself as a candidate for mayor, he open out si Jo of the Democratic party, repudiates its organi . sabon. and defies its discipline. He ia a dis organizer, and an enemy to that party which bat taved ui from ruin, and on whose success all our hope in the future depend. In the strange aad unaccountable desire which seems to possess him to be elected mayor, Flippin would rally the Republicans of this community to hi support. His hopes of de feating the nominee of the Democratic party of Memphis are vain and idle, but his attempt to organize an opposition u none the less de serving of reprobation. The true Democracy of the south, who have just triumphed la Mississippi, Georgia, and Charleston, South ' Carolina, tale no stock in this bolting move ment. In pity, we turn Flippin over to the tender mercies of the Democracy of Memphis, whom he would betray. resolved to defend and main tain thou inr-titution" by constitutions' a'-ti'in; that the interests of the country de mand that a period nha'l be put to the pres ent crUU; that ditWaition of the chambers WtUt consulting the jiidjrn from whose deci sion there in no appeal, and that dissolution could not be renewed consistent with the y-t'.-ra of government; that he had thought it iiin duty to exercise that right, and he now abides by the reply. Thin message is in the pint advocated by Ganibetta and the repub licans generally, and is a gratifying proot of the progreaa that correct and liberal prin ciples are making in France. It accord with the sentiments of the French people, and aP'ea with the theory now ruling in France, and much resembling that of England that the legislature, fredy chosen by the people, is the laxt leaort, and that its decisions muht be respected. The result is gratifying in the extreme, and every patriotic American will congratulate France on the triumph of the people over legitimists, royalists and impe rUliits, the three demons that have brought desolation and ruin to the country, and whose i.ifperate tmd reckless attempt to re-estab-lih their power is, we earnestly hope, anni hilated forever.

To those who arc asking this question, and wondering how the French president came by his Irish name, the following, from the Journal of Commerce, will be of interest: "Marie Edme Patrice Maurice de MacMahon, Duke of 'Magenta, marshal of France, and president of that republic, was born at the chateau of Sully, near Autun, June 13, 1808. He is descended from an Irish family that cl ing to the Stuarts and were forced into ex ile. In 125 he entered the military school of St. Cyr, served with distinction in Algeria, aud was selected by the chiefs of the allied army to lead the successful storming of the Malakoff, where he won great renown. He ls still more famous in the campaign against Austria in 1So9, and led the left wing of the army at the battle of Magenta, Napo-' leon III commanding the center. On the battlefield, owing to his brilliant advance against the Austrian right wing, which saved the day, he was made marshal and duke. He again won high honors at Solfenno." Tiik London Times, while reproaching the Turks for refusing attention to English rec ommendations, admits the fatal nature of the fall of Flevna. It says: "Osman Pasha's surrender is not merely the loss of a consid erable army and a good stronghold, but a final collapse of the whole Turkish campaign and the practical conquest of Bulgaria. The general expectation of Europe has been mis taken. The Turks have been as completely defeated as the Austriana were at Sadowa, in l&GC, and the French at Sedan, in 1370." In view of the large words England has used about "English interests in Turkey," it is asked why she takes recent events with so much coolness how it is she shows no mili tary preparation? The inference drawn is that she has some understanding that satis fies the fears that existed; in short, that the Turkey is about to be put on toe table and cut up for consumption, and that England is to be helped to what will satisfy her appe tite. The telegraph informed us yesterday that the British cabinet are considering a plan to mako Constantinople a free port, opeuintf access to the commerce of the world. This is well. England would lose its su premacy in that port, but neither Russia nor any other power would gain it, and a great danger would be warded off, while trade would be a gainer. There are, however, "hasty ridings to and fro" among English statesmen, that may have a more martial meaning. If the czar has di rected recruiting to cease in Russia, as has been stated, peace propositions are probably not far otf. TIUB TBICMPII IX VBASCb Since the determined attitude assume J by - the republicans in France, who were so splendidly victorious in the late elections, , MacMahon, tho president, has been in a state of turmoil and fidgety anxiety. He is not a bad man, but he is no statesman. He wants to keep power, yet he wants the party that ia in the minority to win. France pulls one way, he another. He is not a man of nroaa news, ana nis military eaucauon naa " helped still more to restrict them. He tries made to command an army; 'therefore he . fails. He has been led, or rather misled, by advisers who have used him to advance their - own schemes. Legitimist, Orleanist, and Bonapartist, had each a different object, therefore councils wero divided. Due de Broglie, a smart, quick, insolent schemer, haa bad the principal influence with him, and hat driven him to the verge of some shape or other of destruction. Slow of per ception as he is, MacMahon found out at hut thai he was running the shin of state on the rocks. On Friday he - appeared to accept a libend ministry that - could command a majority in the lower . clwibcr; on Monday he turned restive and he wanted to appoint a portion of it entirely to please himself. On Wednesday a deputa tion of senators and deputies waited upon nun ana expiainca to mm mat Dusiness was languishing owing to the existing uncer tainty; France waa depressed, the people were disturbed and anxious, and becoming irri tated ; preparations were going on for a grand French exposition and fears were awakening that it would never be held. The president was touched with some feeling of the true situation at last. He declared he had no am- , bitkm for himself, no objects to carry for legitimahVtR, Orteanists or Bonapartists; he . would maintain republican institutions. The next day, as the telegrams inform us, the president's awakening was complete. He waa still tilling to construct a ministrv that should be his own tool, yet contrive to get the legislature to pass their measures, whea a patriotic statesman, Pouyer Quer tier, bluntly bunt out against scheming mini ten, plebiscites, or another dissolution of the legislature. The president's dull head ' at length became conscious of the idea that his proposed course waa not onlv impolitic. Lot dangerous and illegal. He then turned - his expressions against those who had misled him, especially the perfidious Due de BtOlie, with whom he declared he would have no - further relations. He would resign and end it all. From this he waa dissuaded, aad M. ' Dufaure. a former minister and a sincere though moderate and conservative repuLli " can, was sent for and full power given him to chooae a ministry, while the president set on to construct a message to send to the representatives ot the people in the chambers. Ia this way. through the wisdom and patience of the republican leaders, who were faithfully followed by the rank and file, and well sup ' ported by the people, common sense was sub stituted for obstinacy, and statesmanship for bnll-headedness. One powerful stimulant driving MacMahon to a right course waa the discovery that, general as he is, he could not count upon the army in case matters came to an extremity, for the army is republican. The telegrams we have received so far show that the good work of pacifying France, contenting the people, repressing agitation, quieting suspicion, and setting the republic on firm foundations, is quietly pro ceeding. The Dufaure mini try is chosen, and most of the Paris republican papers Ad mit that it is composed of honest republicans, and coo grata! ate the country that the long crisis' is over. O am bet la s paper, me Hepub liqttt TraneaU, remarks: "We have been deceived so often that we must be excused if we do not immediately disarm." Some of the monarchist papers affect to pity MacMa honron account ot the unfortunate position in which he ia placed. The president, in his message, turns completely around from some of his former positions, or those act up for hinr by his ministers. He says the election haa again ahown the confidence of the- French neoDle in republican institutions: that, "to cbey parlianvaSary rule," he haa chosen a A Ciucaoo bard ia stated to have sung: " l'he squall of the hog is over us all," but the present season begins with only a quiet grunt, for the "future" men, the lard-ring voucoctors, the buyers up of mess, and the tricksters in "shorts" and "longs, "are silent. Somber crape, and hushed tones of woe are heard in the halls tliat have so often rever berated with the hilarious calls of bulls and bears. Why this change? A paragraph from the St. Louis Globe gives the answer: "Chicago can point to a larger assortment of bankrupt millionaires than any other city in the Union." How ere the mighty fallen ! From an interview in Cincinnati Commer cial: Weaked Mr. Alacauley'nopinion on the eauses of tho present distress among mana gers and theatrical people, and among other tbings, he said : "1 do not think there is any kindle and epecial reason. There are many reasons. It is generally on the luiih-priced stars we make our money. But once a man ireta the favor of the public he becomes a wolf and a pirate. As long as he has the public with him he can carry himself in arro gance and hauteur. Look at this fellow Jef ferson. He is one of the wolves. He will have all and allow a manager nothing, lie irvts ud a cheap combination and starts out; occupies anv hall in a place and rakes in his one thousand three; hundred or one thousand four hundred dollars a night. 1 wa? his fnend, and, to show it, painted his face upon the ceiling of my theater in Louisville. Even while I am playing my company, along be comes with'-his carpetbag, and nothing is left for me. Everywhere he goes he is like a Clague or pestilence to the regular dramatic usiness in the place vituted. The combina tions are killing us. Boucicault is another wolf and pirate in the field. He is the very epi tome of lies. He is the father and son cflies. His Conn, theShaughrun, is a special effusion of lies. Everybody gets drunk and lies in his plays. His dramas are a deification of lying and drunkenness. Hejmakes "Conn" lie to the priest, a thing an Irishman will not do. He makes a contract with me to play at my thea ter in Louisville, in January. There is no thought of, and nothing in the contract about his playing there before that time under any other management. It is a tacit understand ing between honorable, fair-dealing men that no advantage shall be taken. Then he goes and plays in that city under another management, and, of course, my business is killed, and still he had a contract with me. That is the kind of a wolf he is. That is the kind of a man that is killing the drama as a regular amusement and entertainment for the people. No carpetbagger in a southern State ever injured that State as such men .is Jeffer son and Boucicault and Daly et al. have in jured the drama in this country. These com binations get a play into their own hands and then will play only on such terms as will ruin a manager. Again, they take everything out into the provinces and injure business in tue great cities. They give in Kalamazoo and Kankakee the same plays that are the sensa tion in New York. Che man in a small town, where companies play but one or two nignw, gets a greater variety tnan tne people of a city, where plays run for weeks. This is another source of injury to the business in such a city as Cincinnati. The great thing with the people is novelty and sensation. There must be something striking, something out of the ordinary, very good, or very wick' ed, or very extravagant. People do not go to be entertained. They seek the theaters for sensation and excitement, to be horrified or electrified, or shocked, or astonished. The stage, with such a taste developed on the part of the public, loses its legitimacy, and the drama ceases to be an educator, and teacher and refiner. In a certain way the press has done much to destroy the prestige and influence ot the drama and ot theatrical representation. It has with cold, practical hnsrers drawn aside the veil Irom the mystic realms that he behind the gneen baiz and bevond the gleam of thS footlights. The old. delightful mystery surrounding the little world of the stage has been dispelled, and with it has gone half the fascination of the playhouse. Every detail of the spectacular i laid bare in the public prints, ana alt illu sion dispelled. The actors and actresses. from being creatures of another world the world beyond the footlights have become ordinary men and women, every secret of whose lives is known to the people in the au ditorium; and to them, too, is known the se ciet of every bit of artificial mechanism and every pretty illusion that used to make them wonder .and laugh. The newspapers, too, make and unmake actors. Through their help Alary Anderson vaults at a single bound from the parlor to the position of leading and representative American actress of the tragic school.' Why she Objected. Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser: Lethe Townsend was arraigned on yesterday morn ing before his honor, the mayor, upon the charge of disorderly conduct. The evidence established that on Thursday night, m the colored Methodist church, while a marriage ceremony was being pert ormed, the officiat ing elder said : "If there be any present who know ot any reason why this couple should not be joined together, now is the time to make it known, or forever after hold their peace." Whereupon the defendant arose and objected lo the marriage proceeding fur ther, upon the ground that the groom was a "gay and fond deceiver," and had plighted his taith and promised to marry her. ihis produced great commotion and wild excite ment in the church, .particularly among the lemaie portion, wno clamored to have the marriage go on, some of whom rudely seized her. The defendant was then arrested for disorderly conduct. A. A. Wiley defended her, and the mayor upon this evidence dis charged her. bankruptcy to almost all of thein. The worst of the whole affair is the fact that the money obtained by tliee extra taxes is not spent, as wa intended, on the levees. If this were done and the plantation protected from over flow, these burdens niiebt well be pardoned. but instead of this it is a notorious fact that the money, or at leant a large portion of it, is stolen. The levee board is now in debt, the levees down, the money stolen, and the plan ters bankrupt. The Vickaburg Herald de clares that this outrage car no longer go on, and proposes to appeal to the legislatuie in lehalf of the tax-payers of this district. It may succeed in abolishing these oppressive burdens, but the onlv certain and lasting cure and remedy wilt be to turn the levees over to the t ederal government. Valeatiae Baker' Paaltloa with the TorkH. London World: Colonel Baker has no com mand in the Turkish army, only in the gen- darmerie. In action he advises the different commanders what course to pursue, often leading charges of wavering regiments him self. He and Colonel Briscoe, late .Fifteenth hussars, who, with him, has been foremost a the recent fiVhtictr about Shumla, have a very poor opinion of the fighting powers of the Turkish cavalry, the mere appearance of a bold fiont causing them to waver, and a charge scattering them before contact. Ba ker Pasha has gone to join bis late chief. Mehemet Ali. Of the two Suleiman and Mehemet he naturally prefers the latter. Suleiman allowed him no initiative, and never took his advice. Mehemet, on the other hand, allowed him to conduct recon noissr.nces, and frequently asked his advice. It is true that he never followed it, but then he always subsequently expressed his regret. BARGAINS FOH THE- HOLIDAYS AT A Woman who haa been la a Traaee Mix alontbs. Des Moines (Ia.) Leader: This morning there was at the Given house a strange case to a physician and metaphysician, a Mrs. Shadle. of Guthrie county, on her way in charge of her husband to the insane asylum at lit. Pleasant. Last March the lady be came suddenly crazy and quite violent, and continued so until the twelfth of June, when she passed into a comatose state and has been apparently sleeping ever since, bhe was awake but once during the whole period, last October, when she revived enough to con verse, but not coherently, and the next day went to sleep again and has not since awoke. She is fed by forcing her mouth open, to which she makes no resistance, and shows no relish for the food; her breathing is regular, but quicker than it would be in her normal condition cf health. It is hoped that careful treatment by the scientific gentlemen at Mt. rleasant may resuscitate her aud eventually cure her. One Woman's Veil. Palmyra (Wis.) Gazette: Again, later in the week, the mail agent who carries the mail across the country from this village to Little Prairie, and ether points north, was attacked by two armed men who sprang from the thicket, attempting to seize the horses heads. A lady riding with him screamed, frightened the horses so they broke loose and ran. clear ing the robbers, and taking the occupants of the carriage away in satety. This is the sec ond time within six months, under similar circumstances, that a woman s screams have saved herself aud escort from probable rob bery by frightening the horses so that they ran away, in thi.? immediate vicinity. After all, a woman s tongue may be her best de fense. The California Meoatorlal Contest. Sax Francisco, Dtscember 14.

We beard a business man say, yesterday, that he never read the foreign news in the newspapers; he stuck to his own business, lie was a produce dealer, and yesterday corn fell three cents a bushel in this market, ow ing to the fall of Plevna. Is a business man sticking to his business when he neglects to keep himself informed of the progress of events abroad ? The Mother of Prlaee Bismarck. London Society: A pleasant life was the one in Berlin. Frau von Bismarck delighted in society, in going to and giving parties. She remembered the charmingly interesting circle that used to frequent the paternal home, and her own was furnished in an ex pensive and tasteful manner. She aimed at living on the same scalo as the highest no blest, without dispensing, however, with the artistic, scientific and literary element from which she had derived so much pleasure while a girl. Through the disastrous war with France and a consequent scarcity of money, luxury had materially decreased in Berlin. Many families were seriously im poverished, while the financial resources of all were more or less impaired. Lavisbness and magnificence had to be replaced by sim plicity aud retrenchment. But not to every one is it given to discard at one stroke the habits and predilections of a life-time to do without the sho .v and parade of a sumptuous exiptsnce. The Epicurean school says: "Give us th luxuries, and we will dispense with the necessities." Frau von Bismarck waa in this respect one of its discicles. Her society was much courted ; and, as she was not altogether free from vanity, she derived a great deal of pleasure from these social re unions. ' Her ambition was to shine not only in her own immediate circle, but to surround herself with the wittiest, cleverest and most scientific men, and, by preference, with those who professed the liberal opinions of her late father, which were hers also. Among such she aspired to take a high standing. Her preference for the plebeian element from which she sprang, waa always noticeable, and has descended to her famous son. It ia a sufficiently known fact that Prince Bis marck honors talent and knowledge nay, even seeks for them, irrespective of the birth or position of their possessors. Among the most favored pastimes of his mother was the game of chess, in which, lor proficiency, she rivaled the best players of her time. Music, in which she also excelled, was another of her accomplishments.

Killebrew yesterday informed an American reporter that he had no doubt but that fully one thousand people had immi grated to iennessee, instead ot the two hun dred and thirty-four which were reported to the bureau oi agriculture, statistics, immi gration and mines. The following letter is but a sample ot many winch be daily receives: Fountain Head, Tenn., December 10, 1877. Colonel J. B. Killebrew: I have read in the American your report of the number of immigrants who came into Tennessee last month. 1 failed to see any mention made of forty-five persons who have settled in this county, including: hve families from Indiana. Supposing that you have no report ot tnese, 1 hope you will pardon the liberty l take in writing to you. w. a. pond. Commissioner Killebrew is makimr arrange ments to have every arrival reported to the bureau. All who come through Nashville by ran are easily reported, but no record can be made of those coming by other routes by wagons. About thirty families have come m tms way wunin tne lust lew days. About a dozen teams were met a day or two since on their way to Warren county. They were from Ohio, and stated that more were on their way. A colony of sixty families are now ready to start Irom .New York and Wiscon sin, and will settle in Dickson and Humphreys counties. A Female fWambler. Eureka (Nev.) Republican : Late last night the monotony of one of our second-storv sporting-rooms was relieved by thg advent of a woman, cioseiy veued, accompauied by an escort, iier presence, ot course, excited con siderable curiosity, and the game faro was temporarily ltterrupted.the Dlavers and deal ers taking more than ordinary interest in the new-comer, luey discovered their compos ure, however, on failing to penetrate her veil, and continued their game, keeping a good watch, though, lest she might draw some instrument from under the ample folds of her dress and castigate or scatter the crowd from their wrestle with the "tiger.' A number thought she waa an outraged wift in search of her dear, dear "hubby," whose absence she bad mourned and whom she wanted to catch at the green table. All con jectures were, however, soon dispelled. The case-keeper had risen from his seat and turn ed in his checks, when the faro incognitio de- iibeiately planted heraeit in his chair, opened the case-keeper, piled up several twentv- dol lar rolls of silver alongside of it, and appear ed ready for business. All eyes wered turned upon her, and Purdy's nimble fingers trembled DerceDtiblv. A Rlicrhf nalpnucg wai visible in the dealer's face, but. Tike the boy who stood upon the burning deck, he was bound to stand it, win or lose. Luck fa vored the fair stranger, and from white checks she turned to red, and the red resslved them selves into blue (twenty-five dollars each). She kept the cases carefully and played with all the pluck of an old hand at the business. She won and lost, but kept gathering in the blue checks. Finally, when she was a couple of hundreds ahead, she handed them to the dealer and received her eagles ia exchange, ana, wun ner escort, leit the roam and dis appeared from view. The eyes of the boys stuck out like oung-noies on a molasses bar rel, and they looked at each other in perfect uewuderment. iney were mybtthed by the fair stranger beyond conception, and it was some tame before the game was resumed Who she was no one knew, but they would give something to find out.

New Orleans Democrat: The necessity for a national levee system wan never better il lustrated than in the condition of affairs now existing in one of the k'vee districts of the State ot Missisnippi, embracing the counties of Bolivar, Washioc-ton, Issaqneni, and Sharkey. The people of this district have been taxed since the war for levee purposes as no other people were ever taxed before. Not only is real and personal property nuule to pay taxes, but cotton, cotton-seed, and every other product of the soil are made to pay a very hifh duty. The southern States justly complained of the cotton tax which the federal government laid on the south some years ago, but this Mississippi levee district tax is even worse, since it taxes not onlv the cotton, but the seed as well, and taxes it so heavily that cotton cultivation is actual lv nra. hibited. The returns of this cotton tax for these counties show conclusively either that cotton ' production therein is falling off greatly, or ' that the taxes are beaten by the planters.
