M COallawaT, t 2K2 Second strw. J. M. ( Memphis. Tenn. TULSDAl, TOE LATS Bl'TLGK P. ASDEBMS A the many biographical sketches of tu: lata Butler P. Anderson, published in variou capers and maicaiinea, have been grossly and essentially in.wonratc, we haTe tako: ome paics to procure, from the lntimato friend and family relations, a correct bioara- ctT and a reliable sketch of the life cf the deceased, which appeared in Sunday' Ai fkal. and which will become a preciou hit- tory to those who will ever cherish his nnmnn? an,? with nndviD? aflVctlOn LlV'fS the turf that wrap hi clay and deck his shnue with never-fading laurel. The hand tome and attractive person of Butler P. An derson, and hi prominence a a useful citi sen. mode him a much known a any mon in thi'a citv. The reader of the ArPEAL. therefore, recognized tha cor rect, perfect likeness which consecrated mr mlumiM on Sunday moraine, taken from a photograph by those unrivalled and matchless artist, Bingham & Brother, of Memphi. It i seldom, if ever, that a newpaper cut succeeded o well in giving such a striking likenss as the one which "The hero of Grenada." The heartless refjgee and the cold-blooded and sordid money-lover, with feeling benumbed and deadened, may sneer at those whoe hearts throb with gratitude, and upon whose lips bubble the names of public benefactors. But for one, the Appeal will never weary in tinging the praises, commending the human if y, recounting the philanthropy, asserting the valor and in doing homage to the virtues of such men as Butler P. Anderson. With calm serenity and steady.nerve he pursued the rouffh road. to duty, to death! and to glory! Unmixed and elevated benevolence was the predominating characterise of But ler P. Anderson's life. He would nsv-.'r have made a military hero. He had pluck, nerve, bravery and darin? cjurace. but the groans of an expiring foe would Lave never been muic to hi ear, and he would havcturned from the revolting flcvni-s of the battlefield with mingled emotiou of Spain and horror, or paused in the midst of the carnage to minis ter to too dead and dying. When the epi demic made,: its appeaiance, Butler P. An derson was at home, surrounded by a bapj y family wife, sons and daughters. The dis ease commenced its work of devastation, wept away whole families, leaving behind such desolation and woe as to make unhappy Grenada the wonder and the pity of the world. Butler P. "Anderson heard the cry for help. It required the -nerve of the "Six Hundred" to charge this entrenched pesti lential Balaklava. But he marched to the perilous carnival of death, and devoted all that was in him and it wan much t) the amelioration of suffering humanity. lie entered upon his errand of mercy earnestly, and sot hin -lf with guileless heart and unwearied diligence to the work before him. He never filtered ' until struck down by tho remorseless energy. A whole nation wept over his death. In Veathing out his life, he bad no troublesome ntroversy to Bettlo with a stormy con nce. lie had no occasion to mourn un .Mingly over wrongs done mankind. He . w behind a name surrounded with many ,V-iahable glories, and far greater will be the forie which await him in eternity. THE MKKTIXtt TO-MtiUT. A public meeting will be held to-night at the courthouse in Memphis, for the purpose of discussing the indebtedneit of the city. The time selected for this meeting is most inauspicious. Tho expectation of securing a large attendance at a public meeting on Christmas eve is an absurdity. A fair ex pression of public sentiment cannot be elic ited on an occasion when every man who loves the family circle is preparing for the festivi ties cf to-morrow. In discussing a question so important a our city inJebtedness, no ex pression should be made unkas the people are assembled in mass-meeting. No such meeting can be expected to-niuht. The is sues before the people are simple. One party proposes to fund the city debt at fifty cents on the dollar. The other proposes to repeal the city charter, and thus save the tax-payer from the ruinous exactions of writs of man damus without making any provisions fcr the payment of the city debt. Thofco who favor the last proposition are strongly rein forced and fortified by the opinions of lead ing lawyers, which we puLlicb. in this morning Appeal. But we assure the advocates of repeal that they cannot carry their scheme through the legislature unless they go before that body with clean hands, and show that they have exhausted every effort to compromise and to settle upon a basis commensurate with the ability to pay. Unless the people of Memphis are united, the legislature will not repeal the city char ter. If the bondholders are not foolc, de voured by a consuming avarice, they will readily and gladly fund their debt, for if thry do not, they will find the people of Memphis united in urging a repeal of the city charter, which, according to the opinions of the first legal talent of Memphis, can be done. Brownsville is in the same situation as Mem phis, and she, too, is crying for relief from the legislature. The people of the ent.ie State sympathize with Memphis and Browns ville, whose baaines has b?en ut:er!y proi- trated by the disease which brooded over their homes, and the legislature of Tennessee will give these cities relief, when it is demon strated that every honorable effort has been made to eat.sfy tho rapacity of remorseless creditors. Heal estate is assessed at much Liiher valuation than it will fetch at sale, every sort of values are depreciated, and the tax-paying people can not be saddled with these mandamus?., which, if not stopped by funding our indebt edness, or a repeal of the city charter, will amount to confiscation. The people ef Mem phis are readyfor action, and if the bond holders are as C shrewd as reported they will atonce fund their debt and thus prevent the people from uniting in favor of a repeal of the city charter. TUETYELLOW-FEVJUI. There aro those in Memphis who object to any discussion of the yellow-fever in refer ence to our dead or living heroes, uj on the ground that we are advertising an epidemic, which it is to our interest to forget. It is this over-cautious policy which induces our physicians not to report disease until it bc comes'epidemic. This same policy induced many to condemn tbe Appeal fast June, when, at the instance of Dr. R. W. Mitchell, it orged the adoption of rigid sanitary ineas nre. Because we expressed the opinion that yellow-fever was possible, we were accused of injuring the business of Memphis. Our city will uffer no detriment by discussing the late epidemic and providing against its ro appearanoe; And if the service of true men ,T'' rei'iiled with neglect or ban it pl ati tude in :mi!ur misfortunes, we will u.we no li ro' t honor. IVr jt-ars aftr tLe tire desolated Chicago tLe prc-a discussed it iaV.i'C, lr fl. ; uioif ft" prbviuticg a t-iruilar "( .1.1 - r.i ' iind devising soui-i means by v.hkh tj i-l.uiKl t:.o city. In di?-Lsic,: u..- .fi tpij'.niic, the New York Timri t.vptesse the opinion that the loss of life by yellow-fever in the south this yfar is c.-ticuati. J st about fifteen thou sand persons, and of money nr.d tr:ule at from one hundred and seventy-five to two hundred million'dollaii as great as ti e low from! the Chicago Ere. These figures are startling, though thfy are not probatly ex a'y.'i;iti:d. It wculd not seem posnbl that the south, i npoYeri-hed by the war, ctmid such a sum in three month1, and not be in a much worse condition than it now i. The f.n.t, and it sec ms to be a fact, shows that sl.o was better off than was gei.erally supposed. Lvery pait of the republic has so tu.tDy resources iu iU soil, productions and p-.ople, and is bo elastic through thesi", that no amount of calamity can long discourage or distress it. The yeliow-fever ha had a very unfavorable influence on the general business of the country, lees by the actual injury done than by the shadow cast ar.d the depression caused. But for that, doubtless, the financial feeling would be much better everywhere than it is to-day, and in coinmer cud mutters feeling is everything. Some good is apt to como out of every evil, if the source of evil be diligently investigate It is thought that henceforth quarantine regu lations will be more thoroughly established than they have ever been. Apart from death and human suffering, negligence is the worst kind of political economy. The expenditure cf one-twentieth part of what the fev r has cost might have prevented it altogether. THE HTH EETs) OP MEMPHIS YE8- TKDA. The observance of the Christmas festival grows in this broad land with the pro gress of years. The Puritans, who con demned such an occasion as a Romanuh feast, have passed away, and now their de scendants encourage and participate ia the celebration. With anticipations of delight, all await the approach of the happy festival which brings recreation, mirth and joyful music in its train. As Christmas approaches all avenues of trade in tho city evidence in creased activity, life and cheerfulness. Mem phis was never so thronged with visitors as yesterday. Our streets presented the appear ance of a Mardi-Gras celebration. 1 he chief budineas streets were crowded with shop pers. The cold, clear weather, and the frozen sheets, entirely free from mud and slushhad a very stimulating effect upon trade. The display of goods suitable for the season is nicra attractive than usual, and the stocks of notions, toys andedhfectionery, etc., are large and freoh. During the entire week Memphis will be crowded. The country will pour in its teeming masses. Special rates have been offered to excursion parties on the Mississippi and Tennessee road, acd the Jackson (Teon.) Tribune aud Sun Las the following: 1 be colored excursion to Teruphls on the twenty- snventa Instant promlies to be itn Immense and en joyable ccalon. A.

Tho stay ln Memphis will be most enjoyi-bie. arid the excursion sts will bare rare onbortunltle for havlnic a trciod time.

Ticket lor tbe round trio only three dollars. Time ln Memphis, two half days and one nlaht. All visitors will find the sights in tho ohops worth seeing. Yesterday the utmost activity prevailed. The street cars were filled with shoppers laden with Christmas presents, and the many messenger boys tramped from one end of the city to the other under heavy bur dens. There were thousands of people gaz ing into shop-windows. The stores were in their best dress; the ficest and rarest pres ents were on view. Nothing that the heart could desire or the mind could imagino was absent. There will be still a greater throng at the stores to-day. COllPROHIHIXG CITY DEBT. Nearly every city of prominence is asking a compromise on ils indebtedness. In Geor gia a general law has been passed permit ting towes and cities to compromise and fund their indebtedness. The city of Savan nah urged the passage of such an act in order that it might more effectually carry out the compromise that it had made with its creditors. But if it had been made to apply to the city of Savannah alone, the bill would have come under the head of local legislation, and could not have been atted on until the July session. To meet this difficul ty, and to secure speedy action, a general law was framed, applicable to all cities and towns having more than a certain number of inhabitants, and the bill became a statute. While a general law, the act was intended solely to benefit Savannah. A letter from Berlin to the New York Herald gives an account cf news received from Prof. Nordensbjold's Arctic expedition, which lends the writer to believe that the possibility of a northeast passage has bes n demonstrated. This explorer ia a Swede, who, in 1S75, made an Arctic vovage which established the fact that the sea of Kara, lyinir north of Russia and east of Nova Zam bia, is navigable. The next ytar he made another trip, and got as far east as the mouth of the river Jenissie, where he discov ered a bay, in longitude about eighty de grees east. Ascending the river he disposed of his cargo and returned to Hammerfest, in .Norway, alter an absence of on v eeven weeks. On the fourth day qf last July, Nordenskjold set out on a third expedition, having received assistance from the king of Sweden and Norway, and now news has been received of his safe arrival off tbe mouth of the river Lwa, woich U fifty degrees of latitude east of tho limit which he reached brfore. It is this progress which encourages the belief that he may be able to sail through Bjhring's strait, and thus make a passage from European waters to those of Asia by the Arctic route. If he shall succeed in proving the practicability of such a route from Norway to Japan, he will establish for biruseif a name among the great explcrers. The Bcstcn T aveler man was present at the reception of the new governor-general of Canada, and gives his "hexperience" as fol lows: "Now you llaiaerican gents',' said the master of ceremonies at Halifax to a party of American visitors, "afore you are hintroduced to 'is ht xce'.lency andj'er royal "ighnesa, the-res a few ruic-s to be hobserved. Don't hexpect- torate hon the carpet as you're in tho 'abit of doine at homo, you know, and don't keep your 'ats on a you always do in Uainerica And no revolvers nor bowie knives is hal lowed to be drawn in the presence of 'is hex cellcncy and royal 'ighness, wieh is what you're a-doing hof in congress continually And you'll walk in forwards, and you won't think of shaking 'and with 'er royal 'ig'"ness nor even with 'ia hexcellency; nor ef course you won't haddress 'im as hold 'osa no hold sardine, as hit you was a talking to your President, you know. You'll simply bow an! hasuuie a hattitude of reverence, so far as you know 'ow, and then retire backwards out of the royal presence." Few things, at the present moment, re ceive so much attention as tho progress of the electric light, especially under the inven tions of EJison; and why, it is asked, is the publication of those inventions so long delayed, and the exhibition of their practical rci-ults? The necessity of "heading off" dishonest persons from stealing what they could not invent, is at the" bottom cf the da lay; an exchange paper informs us: "Edi son's patent for a divtsible electric light would have b;en issued Wednesday, as it has reached the last stage, its ' iosue having been ordered, and onljr needing the payment of the final foe. Until this is paid, the com missioner of patent withholds his signature. Edison's delay in this matter ia due to the fact that the conditiun of his application for I . . V". : patents in Kurope is go situated that pub licity might binder their issue. By delaying the payment of the final fee (and this delay can b continued six months.), the patent remains secret, while ready for issue at any moment. '' The Hebrews of New York have received telegrams from their co-religionists in other parts of tbe country disapproving of the re ceipt of any gi.'t coming by the hands of Judge Hilton. The Cincinnati Commercial says ot tbe Jews of that city: "The general opinion is, however, that Judge Hilton's offer would be respectfully but positively de clined, and the amounts thus lost quickly made up by contributions from Hebrews Tho St. Louh Htpublican observes: "Mr. Stewart had the reputation of being an ex traordinarily shicwd man; but bis shrewd ness must have deserted him when he left such a person in charge of his vast estate, and, to a certain extent, of his pott-mortem reputation. If Hilton has blundered as bad ly in business as ho haB in everything else, he will bankrupt the estate unless he dies very soon." The Mississippi river will soon be in closer railway connection with the seaboard than at present. The Nashville American announces "The tunnel at Swannanoa gap will be com pleted this week, and the great obstacle to the western extension of the Western North Carolina railroad will then be removed. The road will be completed to Asheville by June next, and then only thirty-five miles will separate the railroad systems of North Car olina and Tennessee. As the Western North Carolina railroad is to be pushed through to Wolf Creek without unnecessary delay, the connections of the systems will not be long deferred." The following are the yellow-fever ex perts appointed, to accompany the yellow fever commission on the southern tour of in vestigation during the holidays: Dr. J. M. Wood worth, superintendent of the marine hospital service, Washington, District of Columbia; Dr. Cochrane, of Mobile, Alabama; Dr. William Selden, of Norfolk, Virginia; Colonel Thomas S. Hardee, of New Orleans; Dr. Samuel A. Green, of Boston; Dr. W. H. Randall, of Philadelphia; Dr. Jacob S. Mosher, of Albany; Dr. W. H. Mursey, of Cincinnati; Dr. R. W. Mitchell, of Memphis; Dr. L. A. Falligunt, of Savannah, Georgia; Dr. Standford E. Cbaille, of New Orleans. The recent large fire at St. Louis has fur nished further heavy testimony against that architectural blunder the mansard roof. The St. Louis Globe Democrat says: "All expe rience has shown that the average mansard roof is as inflammable as a tar-barrel. The mansard was never intended for any building but a residence; it is wholly out of place on a store. Good taste and public safety alike de mand that no more mansards shall bo put on high business structures." The sultan, on receiving Caratheodore Pasha, the new minister, of foreign afftirs, urged him to push forward all negotiations in connection with the treaty of Berlin, as he was determined to strictly observe ull its stipulations. He especially indicated the Bosnian acd Novi Dazir convention. The secretary of the treasury has issued a circular to customs officers, authorizing them to receive, after the first of January, United States notes as well as gold coin and standard silver dollars in payment of duties on im ports. Lake navigation is the subject matter of discussion at a convention of those interested now in session at St. Paul, Minnesota. Cable dispatches from Berlin report the emperor "wonderfully well." The press of Rome are dissatisfied with the new Italian ministry. As early downfall of the new Italian min istry is predicted. THE WORLD'S GOLD. How the Present Vleld Compares wlta that of Former Times. Pittsburg Dispatch: The formidable move ment ot New Yoik bankers in tbe interest of the demonetization of silver leads to a new discussion of the usefulness of a double standard, or, in other words, the employment ot born gold and silver as the basis ot money circulation, it an article ot intrinsic value be vital to the stability of our currency to prevent injurious fluctuation, it is desirable that the recognized standards shall exist in a quantity as nearly commensurate as possible witn toe bu'E ot the circulating medium. lne Ural mountains, Australia and the Uni ted States are the most productive sources of eold supply, tbe hrst yielding twenty million dollars annually, the second thirty-seven mil lion and the third thirty-five million. Prior to the discovery of the rich mines in the L nited States the total production was only sixty-eight million dollars per annum. The fever ot gold-huntinsr, which was excited bv the finding of the great mines on the Pacific coast, rapidly increased the yearly production until, in 1850 it reached over one hundred and twenty million dollars, and five or six years later gold bullion was mined to the ex tent ot tue enormous sum ot nearly one hun dred and eighty-five million dollars. This was the largest yield ot any one year, and since production has gradually fallen away, and seems to have finally reached an equi librium of about One hundred million dollars per annum, nearly all cf which is found in the three regions named. Now if this represented the actual yearly in crease in the volume of gold which is used as tbe basis of the currency of the gold-using countries, u mignt serve, unassisted, as a standard. But the fact is. this production does little more than supply the place of that wnicn disappears from circulation as money annually by loss and wear, or metamorphosis into articles of commerce. A few years ago some Eoglibh statistician, after a caretul in vestigation, estimated the yearly loss of gold coin to the British treasury at five mil lion pounds sterling, and, calculating from this basis, the loss to the world must amount to nearly the total production, and, therefore, little addition to the bulk of gold ia the treas uries ot all nations can be expected. It is true that new mines may be found. It is not to be supposed that there are no undiscovered regions rich with auriferous deposits. But against this are the uncertainties of discov ery, with an almost certain decrease of the firtseDt production. That there has been a irge increase of the stock on hand during the past quarter of a century cannot be de nied, but this has been due principally to the remarkable discoveries in the United States, which in a few years doubled the store. Thirty years ago the entire stock of gold coin was only a little more than three billion dol lars. Now it is seven hundred billion five hundred million dollars, but the increase was made during a few years, and the past decade has added little to the stock. Pertinent to this statement is the vast increase in popula tion and business in those countries which use gold as a standard. The proportion of gold in store at this time is much smaller in proportion to the wealth of the country than it was a quarter of a century ago, and the ratio ia steadily decreasing. A greater quan tity of the metal is used in the domain of ait than formerly. Its employment as money is being extended to new fields in company with expanding trade, and underlying the whole questnn is the self-evident tact that production itself is subject to the chance of discoveiy. It is, therefore, made plainly ap parent that gold alone does not and will not be adequate to supply the demand for pre cious metals as money, and unless some new financial system shall be discovered which Is still unknown to any enlightened philosopher on national economy, by which money of in trinsic worth may be dispensed with alto gether, the employment of some other metal as an assistant to gold seems imperative. Brownsville States: "Plat Bond, colored, is now on trial lor the murder of his sister-in-law, Grace Bond, (said to be his mistr-?sR), who was about to marry another man. The late conference at Jackson returned Key. S. W. Moore to this station, and retained Itev. W. L. Duckworth on the Brownsville circuit. Rev. Guilford Jones remains at Humboldt. The resignation of Rev. G. A. Russel, as pas tor of the Presbyterian church at this place, was accepted by the Presbytery. The church is therefore without a pastor. Some fiend in human shape, about one mile south of Campbell station, last Friday, the sixth, in broad open day time, placed four new cross-ties on the track to wreck the north-bound passenger train which passes that place about sundown. It was cuseov ered in time. JEWELRY. V, B. THAYER Manufacturing Jeweler and Dealer ln FINEGOLD GOODS, WATCHES, CIIAIXS Sett, Flain and Set Kings and Spectacles, 307 MAIN ST..
