Address GALLAWAY 6 KEATIN&.-r THE COSTKMT TOU. ABBOd D. IATOB If the merchants of Mempb's who are so much er'ioted in the re-election of Mayor Flippin woo'd consott the future growth and prosperity of the city, in which we know they are deeply interested, they w'l take their In' dependent candidate off the track, and place . themselves snd the city of Memphis in ac cord with the Democratic party, which has liberated the south snd that section of coun try which is tributary to Memphis. - The con test for mayor of Memphis is attracting much attention throughout the south. When Mis sissippi was straggling with corruption, and to free herself from despotism.- she had the sympathy of Memphiu, and many of our citizens contributed substantial aid for the redemption of the State. Act natal by a feeling of gratitude the noblest of all human attributes the people of Mis sissippi look with deep concern upon the ef forts to disorganize the Democratic party and to form an alliio)fVth Kadicaliam. ' Mem- rj'ais would do wen xb listen to the voice of her friends. The voice of the Mississippi press, with one exception, is tt Sympathy with the Democracy of this Hy.We publish below a ringing article from .the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion, the central organ of the Democratic party of our sister State, which may be regarded as the generpl voice of the press and the people: The Democratic party of Memphis is con fronted by an "Independent" movement in their approaching city election. The "Inde pendent candidate forf mayor is a traitor to bis party, whickl lid twk elected him to office. Vailing I obtainjj the noavnatioa at this election, kciiia rMOunoed allegi ance to the part fc fhkh hi Owes so mucii, and like the thawed adder has stung the iund of b'S benefactor. Nevertheless, we shall be surprised if 'his treachery is -not re buked at the poiteMiansippr'na a targe share in Memphis, and cannot look with in difference to matters tbttf 1 concerns her; be sides, her people are interested in whatever relates to the preservation of the political or ganization by which Mississippi as well as Tennessee was reclaim osV from- misrule. . As usual, the brave ola Appxal is at the front; gallantly leadinifthe Democratic pad Con aervative cohorUlobe charge.' The Clarion rtxognize in that nolo journal a J led aad faithful ally of Mississippi m tier paxt con test! against the powers of darkness, and bids it God-speed ,'i its , present contest wjth the common' foe at its own door-sill. . These are the words and the advice of a friend. The Cloinon tells tTf uat w' aH know, that "Mi$ jipft 'f I laJirV in Memphis, and etMu'ot look "with Indifference i to matters that concern her." From time to time the Appeal will publish the, opinions of the newspapers patronized by, the ' people who trade with Mnaipli. sad who fcjoioo in oar prosperity as much as we do ourselves. Moreover, we design publishing, during the canvass, the letters received com winding the course of the ArrttAL. " Oatsido of Memphis there is no sympathy with Judge Rfppin and bis Democratic supporters. Democrats cannot understand how a man can have the cheek to call himself a Democrat while he desecrate the pulpit of a churchy on Sunday in ha ranguing the negiiVal vSoila he is noto riously working with Radical leaders in a treacherous warfare against the Democratic party; or how he can bav & tan; sjBMUwnee to count on any Democratic support in such a nefarious business. No merely local contest in West Tennessee ! &i J excited IroJ. wide-spread interest among the Demo crats as the current fight for mayor of Memphis. They arts vfjalciirifr the! contest with keen anxiety, wh'le their arncat and most profound sympathies ae1 enlisted with remarkable seal and unanimity for the Dem ocratic ticket, headed by J, ohm, Johnson. They aee with unerring instinct that the 'result is freighted with the tarpwTjf thctfoe and re liable Democrats of MemDhia.aai of Shelby county in the Augnst election. The conduct of Flippin, in betraying the party that has been so kind to hinVkliieiiteriAgaarch on Sunday, dedicAtevf tothe worship of the Almighty God, for vile party purposes, has filled thfm with disgust, has made the muscle of every rural Democrat who re sides within the radius of country tributary to Memphis fairly tingle to be in the fight. They see and know that Flippin, the creature cf Democratic conventions, is laying the foundation for an alliance by which the. Rad ical will recaptare the city and county front tbe Democracy, and. bene thy are np in arms against the movement' Democrats of Memphis, hearken to the voice of your rural brethren! They talw a coos', candid Demo cratic view of the mtaiGbd in this city un biased by personal prejudice or the rivalries of factions. Tbry are your friends aad the ,., . -.. - j ' friends of Memphis. They are proud of her, ar-f wish to be proud of her Democ racy. Show yourselves worthy of their favor, and yon make yourselves a power for the city's good. With the return of prosperous times, Memphis wDl take a new start in the race to greatness, aad nothing will contribute so much toward making our city the proud commercial queen of the south as to retain her proud reputation aa a Democratic city, in perfect sympathy with the Democrabo people who are her friends and patrons. Bat let it be heralded abroad that Memphis has elected as mayor a man who "huggermnggers' with the negroes on the Sabbath day, and by degrading the pulpit i for political purposes, and she will become a stench in the nostrils of the son them people. This is no time to forfeit the respect and confidence of our out side friends and backers; this is no time to show that the.bugles of Radical leaders can at any time call oat of the Democratic ranks enough mercenaries and deserters to defeat the Democratic party: thit is no time to show that the Memphis Democ racy is a powerless demoralized "thing,1 a Flippin meeringly calls it, fairly rotten within internal treachery; in a word, this is no time to elect a renegade from Democracy, whose only hope of an election is 4y Radical votes. Every day we see Democrats from all parts of the country, who do their trading with this city, and they tell as that the Demo crats in the coxntry are taore excited about this contest than the peonje of the city are, and they arewith the Democracy to a man. They feel a deep interest in Memphis, and they don't want to see e'l the glorious oppor tunities of the present hour, t"d 'l the mate rial interests which she represents for herself and for tbe 8nrroonc,:ng country to the dis tance of hundreds of miles, sacrificed by un scrupulous' place-hunters and trading poli ticians upon the altar of faction. Let the Democrats of this city, then, close np their ranks, and show that they can co-operate for the good of the city; that they are faithful to the old itaadard,and will not betray theiiopea that a-e staked upon their publio spirit and fidslity. They know as well as we do that the bulk of Flippin 's support must come from the Radical party and from the negroes, whose pulpits he has prostituted to the des picable purposes of the pot-house politician; that he has no show of success, save by the party which he has been trice nominated to defeat. A vote cast for John R. Flippin, on the seventeenth of January, is a vote to disor ganize the Democracy of Shelby county, and to elect Radicals to office, by F';pp:n's aid, in the next August elections, -i , CABBY YOCJFCt. The efforts of our distinguished member of congress to sect" an appropriation for the Mississippi levee has brought do a upon him the abuse of the enemies of the southern peo ple.'' In defending Colonel Young from these assaults, the Louisvle Courier-Journal says: "The Chicago Tribune hates Mississippi lev," and claims that if Young's bl in put in operation the cost of the work w " .'bpik iopi the whole jta'Vm. After botmd'ng on the nation to the verge of uU?r bankuptcy daring sixteen yes's, the TrU une pnd other Repub'can papers se distressingly anxious about the public credit. They applauded the legislation bywb'ch one-ajen''efh pai of sua puuiio aeut was coni ix oj issuing A1 1 , " 1 1 1 11 f bonds to the Pacific railroads; applaud' I the dona'on of nearly three hrndred thousand acres ' of the pub'ic domain to the ra'' roads; applauded s'l the various systems of robbery and extortion conceived by the Republican party, and now are howling about 'a rs'd on the 1 reasury, when the south makes an en tirely legitimate demand for the protection of a vast agricultural region from nundation,and the improvement of - the ' navigation of the Mississippi river, wbch wov'd be for the im mediate benefit of sevent :en States of the Union in the west and south. Yhe Chicago Tribune, however, has recently, seeing that it is impossible to prevent justice being done to the Mississippi valley, advocated, ?i place of levees, the construction of cans's, ti let off the superabundant water. Tne Tt Tbun) is unacquainted with the subject it discusses, as the Courier-Journal has frequently shoa a, The canal and cut-off system wi'l ruin the river and shoal it in a few years, as General Humphrey has demonstrated. 'The cost of the embankment;1 says' the Tribune, 'is be yond estimate." Th;s is false. It ha been accurately es 'mated, and forty or fii.y mil lion will accomplish it. We are surprised that the Tribure should now advocate this cut-off system. It woe'd reqtrre one hun dred million to do that work, and then it would have to be done over aain a1 most im mediately. Perhaps the Tribune rea'ly. writs to ruin the Mississippi liver. Its cry seems to be 'anything bat levees. But levees we w31 have."3'' ' .:v THE EXTUfitlSHEB OF CHURCH The indebtedness of a church seems to be as . much of an auadiment as an organ. NeaHy every chech cdceja encumbered wifha mortgage, and the more fashionable the rhorch and the larger the c onfcregation the gi-eater seems to be the debt. Mr. Ed ward Kimop'l, of Chicago, has suddenly made national reputation as the great extihfcjisher of church indebtedness. - His achievements in this line of business is remarkable. Mr. Kim ball has been creating a great sensation by his efforts in New York recently. He was ngmally a commercial traveler, in the busi ness sense, and it was while traveling ra Cali- lbrniSi in the interest of 4 Chicago school- furniture house, that first he became inter ested in the matter of relie .ng cheches from debt, He first secured permission from two or three pastors of laral churches ti ad dress their congregations on the subj' and his appeals were so successful that he went tj San Francisco and Sacramento, where he freed one church of a debt of m'ghiy-r'x thou sand dollars, and others of sms''er amounts. Then he sta-t3d east, stopping at Denver to liberate j three churchr 1 there, and i western New York to ex xate some more. Axi'nlig in New York cily, he at onre attacked he most stubborn cases ofN&nrcb mortgage n that debt -burdened metropolis. "Four weeks ago to-day be succcasfr'iy Idgged at Ihe purse-strings of the members of Dr. Robin son church, wbch he frrad from a debt of $110,000. This took two Srndays, however. At a Friday evening prayer-mcet:ng, 'n the interval, he raised 25,0C ) for another New York church, and twojweek ago iraleased a church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, from a debt of $37,000. Last Sunday he commenced his heaviest task, that of rang a mortgage of $250,000 on the Holy T.i cho-ch of Dr. Stephen H. Tyng. A desalpTon of the vigorous and business-lke means he em ployed thereiwill give a sr-fficiently cstinct idea of his genera lm2t hod. He was brought into the pulpit Sunday mornmg, without any previous announcement, and tne congrega tion, who had comfortably settled themselves to hear the usual sermon, were startled, in stead, by a vigorous appeal from this ener getic stranger for money to pay the immense debt which burdened them. He told them precisely what he wanted, ten subscriptions of .110,030, twelve f j000, and others of smaller amounts, and appointed canvassers to besiege the members personally, (while he continued his impas sioned appeals from the pulpit. The congre gation grew restless, and some slipped oat, b-jt others remained and yielded one by one, so that in the course of the morning some f 1C V 000, were secured. After that the work went on more slowly, bat there was no intermia atoo in Mr. - Kimball's effort until : night, lunch being famished the imprisoned mem brrs in the church' basement. - Finally, sub- acriptions in small amounts were called for, when $40,030 were quietly raised, bringing the entire sum to $150,017 15. An adjourn- ment.was then permitted, with the under standing that the work would be continued every night, and the fjhope that it would bo completed. It is a curious circumstance in Mr. Kimball's history that he was a member of the same Chicago church with D. L. Moody, and that . 'the latter was converted under his instruction as Sabbath-school teacher. PARTY UBTITY IH VIK6ISIA. The voice of Virginia has always been po tential in the southern States. The Con servative party of this grand old common wealth is made up of the same elements and with the same policy in view as that which governs the Democrats and Conservatives of the southern States. . At their last State con vention, held in October, the Conservatives adopted the following resolution : Betolctd, That the party throughout the State is earnestly called upon to support all regular nominees State, district, city and county and that all Independent candidates shoula be discountenanced in this canvass, and refused any recognition by the party during the term of office for which they may be elected : and that all such persons be re membered and treated as disorganize ra by the Conservative party until they shall have proved by their acts a purpose to return to their party allegiance. That is the way Virginia treats disorgan ize. The Richmond Dispatch calls atten tion to the above resolution and says: "There are unscrupulous men in the legislature who will try to use the Independents and Radi cals aa tools to aid them in accomplishing personal objects. But we trust that a ma jority of the Conservative members cannot be induced to haul down the flag of that honored party. On this subject the State committee spoke in no uncertain tone daring the prog ress of the late gabernatorial campaign; and consequently every Independent who ran against a Conservative nominee was elected outside of the Conservative party, and should be kept outside of it." Tne Dispatch adds: How rapidly an Independent party grows may be learned from the following paragraph, which we take from the Baltimore Sun of Monday: "In the 'last Georgia legislature there were twelve Independent?. Letters re ceived here in Washington state that at the recent election for a new legislature about eighty Independent candidates were elected, It is said that the Independent candidates re ceived the bulk of the colored vote, and divided the white vote." come of our readers of mature years may remember that a citizen of Chicago once went to heaven. It is a long rime ago, of course. When he applied to Peter for adn;ssion, the saint said no liars were received there, and as there was no such place as Chicago, the ap plicant evidently belonged t that class sinners. An exsnrnalion of the map of the United States, however, showed the correct ness of the statement, when - reter sad 'You cai go 'i, I suppose, but haug me if you are not the first man that ever came here from that town." Sw "idles, Bmashes, crash es, and bankruptcies have kept Chicago pret ty well before the pubc sice that t;me, but Chicago has no monopoly in the'ineof fraud even steady-going Montreal, among ov? can ny neighbors in Caiada, is exhibiting some rival claims. The telegraph :nforms us that two Montreal dry goods merchants there have disappeared suddenly and mysteriously, leav ing one and a half million of dollars due to banks and other creditors.
