The result of this effort to squeeze blood out of a tutnip will astonish many of our citi zen and amaz all Odr creditor?. The city fatbdrr, most of w'aom were supposed to be opposed to sut rendering the city charter, promp'.ly and utauimously passed a resolu tion to that effect. We bavn no doubt that a majority of nil c'asw of the people of Mem phis will indorse this aotioD, and that both houses of the leg!!ature before whom bi'.ls aro do pending, providing for this last resort of a people mad.? des perate by n series of ca'amities ucparal teted in the his(o-y of the cities of the United State will at speedilgrant the relief eup- posed to ladtie in a surrender of the name and all that in law makes Memphis. Mean while, the general council will not meet again, so that these mandamuses can not be be enforced by taxation. The Appeal has hitherto withheld its assent to so desperate a remedy for our financial distresses at the sur render of the city charter, but admonished by the mandamuses Reived last nirht, it sees no other way of relief open tor a sorely pressed people.

It seems itenerally conceded that Bumslde's bill for the reorganization of tbe annjr cannot a-?. Toe Dill, as a whole, will be vigornuy opposed by sou-aof the ablest members of both houses, on the ground thai It lenus to subordinate the war depart ment, and even tbe President himself, to l lie general of the hi my, and to establish a sort of military autocracy, wnlcn Is not In harmony either with the wishes of tbe people or the spirit of cur institutions, rtjnie of tbe leading opponents of the bill no not besltaie to say that me aiitoority which It gives to lh- genera of ihe a-in j Is not only exe--stdve, but whiilln unconstitutional. Under Hie eonv etion mat the bill tn Its present shar. or In any i-hape which It Is ilkelv to assume, will fall to receive the ap proval of congress. K -preventative AtKlus, with tue counsel, Misge.sticns and o-iietatloii of sonm or the aoiest otUi-ersof the army, has prepared another as :i substitute, wbtcti, nlihough it b 3 the same general object as Burusiue's oul. duTers consider ably from the latter !n Its meth ods and details. I's principal provisions ate as follows: Too army Is to be reduced to tue des red strength, not by suminmy dismissals or en forced re'liements, hut by a slower ulceration -cas-ualtP-s and resignations are to be left untitled. Rrg-lui- nls are to be consul dated as their cffec'.lve strength decreases, and the whole army Hue and staff alike allowed to gradually shrink to the uesired numerical limits The retiied list. Instead of beinz restricted as nowt four hundred, to be made as larseasthe necessities of the service may require, and all t'tlieers, without exception, are to be placed on thai list as fast as they become locap icluted for active duty or leach the age i f sixty-two. In the meantime the supply of new olllcers trom We Point Is to he cut otf. Tbe bill pro-Ides tbat tbe members of the nxtto classes graduating from that academy sna'.l. If they fo dedre. receive seven hundred and titty dollars e.'icti upon the completion of their studies and be p-ruiitled to return to i heir homes, subject to recall at tl expiration of two years If tb-lr s rvlces are required, i be provisions of the bill wllb regard to ihi reduction of the num ber of regiments lu tbe army are similar to those of the Burnside bill. Tbe urmy, however. Is placed un der mprein-c.iMrol of the secretary of war, subject to the b gber authority of the President as com-mander-ln-chitf. Tbe power of general in the army. Instead of belm; Increased us by the Buraslds bill, Is strictly limited to lis pressia b.-uuds. The bill provides for tbe adoption of the bat talion system of regimental organization, and makes a obangd In th present system of promotion as regards first and cecMid He tenants. Lieuten ant can now be advanced only In regiments to which they are attached, while captains aud majors can be promoted to blgber ranks In other reiu-uts belonging to tl 1.1110 itnnr PHrrvlcv. Tbit lliXM- ence Ihe bill prooses to abolish by giving lieuten ants the same eligibility to proiuo'lon In ether retl- tieuM that uigner omcers enjoy, inegeneiai rea- : lures proposed in the reorganization of the stalT de partmenu ars li::!)ar to ihose attached to the army appropriation bill ly tUs .housa last session and sub snjuriiily Kbandoiied. The lnterchangeablnty of 1 line and staff oltlcers, which Is t!;e nmch-crlilclsed , frature or tue ournsiue uin, is uoi im-iuueu 111 mis substitute. Other changes cf greater or lesa Im portance are made lu the details of tbe army organ ization, but tue above are the salient features of the proposed law. It Is now under the consideration of tbe sub committee on tbe army appropriation bill, and It is believed the 1-itter will recommend to lijd full committee tha adoption of at least Its more Un'ir'ant provisions It, however. It should not be Incorporated in tbat bill. It will short1 j be in troduced either by Atklnj or Hewlit, or j'wYorlc, on lis own merits, as a substitute lor the bill of Gen erals Buniblde aud B in.ili.g. OUB AOKICTILTtKAL PRODUCTb.

Piiiladelphi A.January 9. The following Interview with President Hayes will be published In the Philadelphia I'ress to-morrow by ''Oath." He first called the President's attention to his recent visit to New York city. "That was a dellgbiful event," said Mr. Hay?s: "Mr. Curtis's oration was not only well written, and delineated Mr. Bryant's character trom every point of vlaw. but tbe pleasant style and manner ot Curtis always had a charm for me." I toid tne president that Oeore William Curtis did not rise to the occasion sufficiently. Suld I; "I was In R Chester when Conkllng urged oa bis ene mies two years ago. and Curtis received a distinct cb&lleng- there, aud was expected to meet Conkllng, but didn't do it." 'Sometimes," said the President, "the way to dls apr o.nt vrr th. Is to overlook It." He said of another public speaker: '-He had Conkllng's elegant way of swaying bis torso," Allusion was made to (General Scbenck; and. while we were tbere, his nephew, a naval otUcer, came In. Mr. Hayes said: "Suhenck is a very enlivening man. He was celebreted on the slump In Ohio for his terrible nay of boiling down an Indictment against a political adversary, and ut tering It so tuat for weeks afterward there was politi cal comrn 'tiou But, with all bis seriousness, he was the best lautjb-r I ever saw. He enjoyed anything ildleulous, and discovered it a little late, so that his lauah wouid siowly trickle dwn his body aim nhuKe h ra to the middle. In his younger days Oenoral Scheuck was my admiration as a partlaau and as a man of -oc'ai wnoleriess." "Mr. President, you are getting some of the fruits of your sacrifice. They don't abuse you as tbey did eighteen mouths ago." "There are times and seasons," said Mr. Hayes; "wblie the business tiuies are bad, and In b lh par ties some new issue like lnllatlon cieates d. visions, the Executive receives a large juntum of tne scowls; but occasionally there Is a vntory, or something f n?.l and decisive, and tbe administration gets a lUtle truce sr.d rosi.v Satdl: "Mr. president, ao you meditate making another Journey into the south during your adminis tration, or during any portion ot the pending winter and spring?" "I have not thought of It," said the President. "Why should 1 1 You know that I did make a rai her exteuslve Journey soon after my Inauguration. 1 went from Cincinnati and Louisville to Ueorgla, aud made another Journey to Richmond." "From some things tbat I bave recently heard, Mr. President, It occurred to me tbat If you were to go to Georgia and otbtr southern State, it might ba the means ot awakening a feelng tbat, I am tol l. Is symptomatic of Insubordination in the Democratic ranks." "I rather entertain the view," said the President, "that the best thing to do with tbe south is la let It alone. I don't tuir.k the course of ao Improved feeling U to be assisted by too much outside Inter ference. Tbey have had enough foreign prodding. I am entirely aware that discord prevails In tbe ranks of tbe Democrarlc party there, as It very Dawrally might do. While 1 will , not ventur to predict bow long It will take for a respectable divis ion io occur lq tne south, i am very sure it must come about. Tbey may not divide during my adminis tration, but the south has thinking. Independent people, like ant other section. 1 hear, as you do. thai tbey are not wholly ssllsfled with tbelr condi tion, nor contented witu their apart and segregated reiauon wun me re or tneir leiiow-cuizens. ' I then showed the President a letter irom a dis tinguished perton tn the etate of South Carolina to a gentleman or prominence In an adjoining Slate, uuitg me joiiowing language about the last Mite election: "Notblng In el-ctions can ever hereafter unite more cheating, rascality and folly than our managing men nave accomplished in our lute elec tion. They have disgraced ui before tbe whole eouutry, and loaded the iarty with the burden of uieir inramy; ana tne lolly ol it all Is tha1 there was not the least occasion lor It. Tbe State executive and legislature were suie without It. I bave seen no statements oi tne frauds wb ch are exatrsreiated. Tbey were simply frightful The .Vtirn atui t;firvr at iaat yesterday (Dec-tmber 54tb) noticed for tbe first time tbe northern press ou the frauds. What I would like better than anlhlng would be for butler to attack me or give me a fair chance at him. I dou't think be would find the same success he had with oa son. When Dawson published the truth about the Hamburg massacre, Butler telegraphed to the Journal of Cnrnmerct that the news report was a tissue of 11. s, whereupon the valiant Dawson sub sided, and at once licked Butler's hand, and there has oeeu love and peace between them ever since." Tbe writer f this letter, as tbe President knew, waa ele ted by the Democratic party to the United States tenate from South Carolina, and was not admitted. Th-re was substituted for htm a Re publican senator (Sawyer. I found ti e President perfectly well Informed about the matter r this let ter, and also ooncrn lng Its recipient. " That gen tleman," he said, " Is Judg-) James Campbell, of Chai leaton. He acted with tbe Democrats uutil tbey passed a law, or had a law interpreted, so as to make toe black votertc ihlrty and forty miles to an elec tion poll, when Judge Campbell denounced that act as not In keeping with the terms ot the surrender. He was then regarded as an enemy, and has ever since been an Independent man. 1 look to time as tbe great medicine for the south. I am of tbe abso lute oellef tbxt the American people. In every sec tion, are to become thoioughly homogeneous, equally protected everywhere in ail their rights, and with equal habits and enlightenment." Air. rresiueot, now do you account for the re markable development cf Individual character In tbn Slate or Oblo during tbe last twenty years?" "You refer to public lite, I suppo-e," said ibe Pres ident. 'T think that arose in part from our posi tion. We stood acrotg that perpetual current of emi gration to the west from the States of New England, ew York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We were constantly refreshed with new blood, and tbe emi grants were men of bold spirit, ardent to Improve their futures. Another great education for Ohio was tbe practice of public speaking from the stump in all election contests, it was Introduced Into Ohio by the Virginian element, which settled In the southern cart of the Slate. All our candidates tor govern ors, congressmen, and even local positions, bad to ds reaay to explain tnemseives, advance tneir views, and discuss with an opponent. The conseouence was tbat every man In a public position bad to g-t over bis backwardness and thrness.and nresent blin sjlf boldy, and learn to reason off hand. I do not kuow of as good a system of education as that. F iom Ohio this system has txteuded eastward Into New York and Peansylvanls. We have, however the fullest benefit ot such public discussion. Tbe consequence Is, such debaters as James A. uarneld." 'Do you regard Uarueld as oue of the best pro ducts of the popular-speaking system?" "I tnlnk li would be very bard la any part of this country," said tbe President, "to match Uartleld as a veisatlle, thought'ul, ready public speaker. Not that his theory la altogether a matter of tempera ment, it grew by habit and frequent opportunity until that gentleman can stand upon his led and reason with precision, and entertain a large body of men and womeu anywhere." 'Mr. President, wblch or the nubile speakers or Ohio influenced yu and men of your age more than any others? 'Thomas ttwine and Thomas corwln. They were the greatest speakers tbat I heard In my youth. Cor wln was a model for humor and playfuluess, to bring people up lo a feeling of good-natured recep tiveuesa. Mr. Kwlng was a rather more ponderous and grave man, and probably the belter reus mer of tbe two. He used a set of stalely phrases at tbe opening and conclusion of his discourses. I re member that oue ot them was: 'Ladles and gentle men, I see before me to-night a sea ot handsome faces and au ocean of Intelligence.' " do yi.u apprehend mat uuiowiti continue to noiu her place as ihe most prominent political Slate In the West?" 'I can't say tbat." said the President. "There Is another Ohio bejond us, settled by our young men. who constitute a large element in Illinois and other Slates. It may be tbat we shall lose tbat scepter that we have in a measure kept for some years. It may go west. I do not obseive, however, any falling otf in public spirit and the manhood ana stature of the people oi udio. " w'hlcu city or sett'emcnt In the State has had tha most Influence on tbe general body ot the people of Ohio? ' Cincinnati altogether. There Is a union of races In Cincinnati wnlch has produced the most excellent social and Intellectual results." I suppose jou consider General Grant an Ohio product?" "Decidedly so," said President Hayes. "He Is a native of our State, bom In one of our southern counties, and sent to West Point by an Ohio con gressman." w nen did you nrst meet nx-president urant, air. Hayes?" soon after tne close of the war. l met mm on various occasions at home and elsewhere. Our re lations have never been other Hum agreeable." now Huron leiud mat portion or your lite 'JSi3 in tbe roboillnn as a acldler ?" "I nave said on more than one oecislon. an swered tbe President, "that It was the best and hap piest portion of my life." do you mean mat li gave you more personal education than any other period?" "No, not that," said the President. "I refer to the satisfaction that I felt tben and ever since bave felt that I w- s a portion of those majestic armies. Eveiy tbing associated with my lite In the army Is a happy and satisfactory reL-ollectlon." "W bat is the next Issue in national PI'tlM. Mr. President" That derends altogether on our Democratic friends," said Mr. Hayes. "You know that tbey are in tbe opposition and must raise new Issues to em ploy themselves. It seems to me tbat Judge Thur man laid down their next issue when be said: 'The national banks must be attacked, and Instead of their currency the greenbacks will come In vogue everywhere.' Do you see anything else?" asked tbe president. I told the President that I thought tbe south still presented the Held for something exciting. "i should rather think," said the President, "that the northern Democratic leaders would tress tbat siauestion of Thurman. 'They think tbat tbe n- t onal batks ml'ht be assailed with popularity.!' "What Is the objections. Mr. President, to putting out tbe greenbacks and taking up the national bank notes?" "It would not stop there," said the President. As soon as jou destroy the existing system of bauks tbere will be an agitation for tbe elates to again ex ert their full powers and print a State currency. Shrewd, sharp, over-anxious men. such as exist In every State, and particularly In new States aud In poor Staies.t will get the banking privileges. We shall see ag dn that condition of tbmgs which pre vailed about IKHrl, when all kinds of local currency were afloat, printed, generally, on the commonest kind of Wkrer, and pc jrly executed, so thst a coun terfeit woird pass almost as well as a good note, and both were at a discount a few miles trom tbe place of Issue. We shall have, under such a system, an other lax In the shape ot an exchange between such a S ate currency aud good money at the seaboard. Tbat is the only question. It seems to me, Immedi ately pending, and our people may expect to have to meet it. l can distinctly recollect toe time wnen the irreat bulk of the currency In tbe western States was in the hands of a mere handful of men, who managed tne wnoie or it." " do you ieet satisnea wun ine success oi resump tion V" " It seems to me," said the President, " that our whole people must, without regard to party, have given a general assent and assistance to that meas ure since it has gone Into operation. It looks to me like a very perfect success." Tbe gentleman who called with me said: " Mr. President, the tees paid In my ofllce to-day amounted to fifty-five dollars, and came from quite a number ot persons. Ot those fifty-five dollars, forty-three dollars were paid In gold, and thirty-eight dollars cf the fort .-three dollars were lugold dollars.' I was anxious t3 i;et soiue expression out of the resluent about ex-President Grant, and I asked the former if he had seen what General Giant said about bdn in Dublin. No. replied rr-siueni iiayes, wun considerable Interest; " 1 didn't see any thing of tbat kind." I took the Cincinnati Enquirer cut or my pocket, rlnved 1M Sunday morning, ant) read the follow ing ; "Two distinguished men bave alluded to this subleut. One was the President of the United Slates, and be said that tbe prosperity of tbe United States would be felt to tbe bounds or the civilized world. The other was Lord Beaconsheid, a most far-seeing man. who seems to me to see as far into the future as any man I know, and he says tns same as President Hayes." The President reached out to take tne paper, ana I Indulged h pes of getting some positive expres sion of opinion from blm, when ibe messenger en tered the room and said: "Mr. President, here Is Senator Mathews with two gentlemen," Wishing mentally that Mathews could have been suppressed for five miuutes more, we arose, and the President Introduced us to that majestic intruder, whereupon we said, "Good night."

Change, deny and death are written on everything or eirtli. and both philosophy and religion teach the lesson of patient resignation to these Inexorable coo dlttons; but when human nature Is smitten with the croelest blow Fate can deal the frail structure tram bles at the shock. Death Is always Urrible, and Us silent ravages bring tbe bitterest and keenest sorrow, even when Us vlcilmsare seized In the sinless purity of in farcy; when angels hover around to near tbe spirit away; wheu the remorseless hand wrests 'he staff of life from tbe t-embllng grap cf decrvp'tude and age.

Foremost In the ranks of tha hundreds of noble, unpretending heroes who met with fearless courage and a sublime sense of duty the dreadful pestilence that recently ravaged the south wltb such fearful violence, and who fell In tbe unequal contest wltb the remorseless plague, stood Dr. John Stxi.kk rJn.u who died at his post In the faltbful di-cbarse of his professional obligations, near Moscow, Tennessee, of yellow fever, on t! e fourth day of October, I87K. meeting -eath with the same calm, manly fortitude and un shaken christian faith which elevated and ennoble! his character wirle living.

W hen the noiseless pestilence which walked in tbe shadow of death commenced Its resistless march lowaid his home, and its victims bevaa to fall around him, he calmly con fronted the dreadful spec ter without tear or trembling, and with no thought or self or th dangers which encompassed hi in be did brave and manful battle agamst tbe enemy wuo-e blows fell alike upon the strong and the weak.
