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

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.
