" ' Mem i hls, Tenn MEMPHIS APPEAL JULY 17,1879. i:tXL l)4's LOOHK H1LVE& The ccntmued accumulation of silver dol lar iu the treasury is ai0U8ir.tr attention. The coin m found too big and heavy to carry about in any quantify ; ten or twenty dollars in a mail's pocket is worse than carrying bullets at a de?r hunt. Every month two millioas more of them are added to the hoard, and although there is no denying that a lew hundred, or even thousands, of the coins "are "a mighty convenient thing about the house," tho treasury is finding thai, even of dollars, there cau be "too much of a good thing," especially when it is uselessly locking up capital that uhould be made productive. Expedients have becu used to get the super fluous lumps of silver into circulation, but with no treat success. How the matter stands is bst seen by reference to figures: Of the caeh in the United States treasury April 1873, 12,014,000 was silver; July 1, 1378, f 5,281,000; January 1, 1879, $16,697,000; Jul..,- 1, 1879, $20,181,000; July 1, 1879, 23,147,000. The first month of full coinage left in the treasury over $2,000,000 coins. After three months it ap peared thaj orly about $700,000 less than the full amount of $2,COO,000 per month had lodged in the treasury. -At the end of nine months coinage, on the day of resumption, thi store in the treasury was just one month's production less than the fuli amount of $2,000,000 per month, and from that day to thi2, six months jf coinage have added about $12,000,000 to the idle stock. No change in legislation can now be expected before February l?t, when the hoard will amount to about $42,000,000. By the time another congress is chosen that will perhaps consider the matter, in February, 1881, the ttore will be about o6,000,000. At present the accumulation does not seem to materially affict the store of gold, which has not been reduced 15 any important extent, although the outgo for redemption of logul tenders in June was about $2,500,U0O. The want of employment for the millions of silver lying in ti9 tr'jsury will excite more attention in some months to come than now, for the rea ec.a tii;it at present capital is abundant, and over abundant, and the idle dollar coins can be dispensed wilh. But active trade is com ing, capitalists will invest all they have, and biisin!" wilLxutrftntlv .clamor "for more" Uoucr tucii cucumstances enough money to build the Darien canal cannot re main shut up and idle without effectual pro tect.

If the reader will refer to a map of the American continent, and seo what a mere step it is across it from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean?, and then notice what an im mense distance a vesiel wanting to tro from New York or New Orleans to San Francisco has to go south to get Ground Cape Horn, then north to get back all that was lost in t'oicg south, he will infallibly say, what a wonder it is that the itiimus has not been pierced and free transit iioia ocean to ocean opened there long before this time. To thick business men and governments should have leimitled the obstruction of a few rocks to baRte them up to the very edge of the twen tieth century, when a little unity and a little effort would long ago have accomplished all. We pride ourselves on our "go-aheadative-nesa," but we allowed Europe to beat us in this matter; they have opened their Isthmus that of Suez and a brilliant teit it has proved. Our isthmus is still untouched. The success of that grand Frenchman, opened the lilhnius of Sueu Lesaepa, who h. at length awnkened Uv! conviction that the American isthmus must bi opened also. In proceeding to discharge that duty foi such it has clear My bi"Couit with what spirit ought it to bo entered upon? Should the work be donejfor lb- world at la.gn, or for the advantage of some particular mercantile interest, some special trade, for the welfare of some town or district somebody is interested in favoring; or even with a particular view to serve the interests of soma ind vidual country or na tion above that of all others, or even at the expense of that of all olher.? We wish the reader would now turn to the map of the world in hii atlas, and see how the world's neighborship would be promoted by cutting the isthmus canal in the right spot, and how much woaM be loafc by forfeiting the world's teres!, and substituting for it the interest of Rome particular (.roduct, or manufacture, or city, or nationality. An examiuatioa of the map of thii world, in its relation to the isth mus of the American continent, will show any fair-judging man that the spot where the canal penetrates tho American intimitis should lie selected from wider and wiber considera tions than thoso of any private advantage to any interest or nationality uuder heaven. The canal ought to be dug at the right point, and at no other. Now, where is '"the right point?" Evidently the right point is that spot which will admit of cutting a clear canal from ocean to ocean without lock or other ob Btiuction. This poiut, however, must fulfill another condition; it mutt bo tho spot that will present a sutlkif ally deep sea approach for vessels at both the mouths of the canal Still another ditliculfy may, but is to bo sincerely hoped docs not txit, which leads ti still another condition. Thergmay be so .--pot which will admit of approach from belli seas without iocki or other obstruction. If such be the aad we feel eure from the reports made that it is not thru the si.ot to be selected must bo the one requiring the fewest lock cr other necessary obstructions. Such as these, not particular or provincial, or even ftpecial national interests should govern the decision of the place where the canal shall pierce the American isthmus. We shall probably hear much of this canal question within the next few years, and we shall hear much of the nnrrow notions and selSh sug gestions of interested parlies something of that spirit has even now betrayed itself. If our readers have perceived, lrom what we bavi written, what should govern the deci mcu as to the spot where tho American isth mus should be pierced, and what should not govern it, they will thread their way without difficulty through much coming controversy.

NiSHViLLK, Tknn., July 1, 1879. Hon. Bobert L. Caruthers: Dear Sik The undersigned, remember ing with gteat pleasure your long and faith ful service, and knowing how earnestly you sympathize with the people of your State in all their trials, beg leave to ask your opinion as to what the people ought to do at the ap proaching special election to ratify or reject the proposition tor a settlement of the State debt. It is believed by many that the State may, iu some way, be involved in serious litigation with its creditors, and upon thi question, as well as upon the true interests of the State, we would be much pleased to have your views, so that we can make them known to the people of the State. Vry truly, A 8. COLYAB, JO. C GUILD. K. T. TALIFE?lBO, H. T. JOHNSON, K. ENoLKY, B. A. POINTER, NEILL 8. BROWN, EDWARD K it AST, W. B. REabK JUDGE CARUTHKB8'8 REPLY. To Eon. A. S. Colyar, Jo C Guild. E. T. Tallafero. fL T. Johnson, E. Ensley, S. A. Pointer, Melli K l.rown, E. H. East and W. B. Reebo: Mctwithstanding my reluctance to appear before the public on this or any other matter, I cannot retrain tram complying with your request to give my views to the people on a question that I consider of such vital import ance to them. If there ever was a time and occasion which imposed the duty upon every citizen of the State to make known his senti ments to the public upon a pending question, the adoption or rejection of the proposition for the compromise of the State debt, sub mitted to the people by llie governor, uaJer the direction of the legislature, is certainly of that character. It is, indeed, a crisis of the greatest magnitude in the history of our State. Its importance cannot be overesti mated. It involves the pecuniary interest and prosperity, and what is infinitely more im portant, the good name ana cnaracter ot our great State tor the present and the future. ennessee nas a name among her sister btates. and before the world, worth preserving. In peace and in war she has ever occupied the roat ranks. tier reputation lor nonor ana good faith is worth more to her people than a!! her mineral wealtn, vast as it is, ana ner fertile soil and salubrious climate. AH these advantages wouia not compensate ior me loss of her honor and character for integrity. These are the jewels of a State as well as in dividuals. ,very citizen cas an immeaiate and perieual interest in the character of his Slate for high-toned honor and the strictest good faith. There is no sacrifice too great tor the preservation oi tnese irom me Biignt- st blemish. As to these generalities l wouia uccose there can be no diversity of opinion. Nqv, let us see how they apply to the great question to be decided by the people on the sevecth of August next. We find ourselves indebted to the extent ot about twenty-lour millions of dollars, evidenced by bonds paya ble to bearer, nnder the great seal ot the State. Our changed condition since the debt was contracted, created an equity for a re duction, which was recognized by the creditors. The amount ot abatement was a matter for the adjustment of the parties under all the circumstances of the case. The creditors, after taking into consideration our great losses of proper ty, resulting- from the war, and the diminu tion in value of that which remained, volun tarily proposed to Bettle at sixty cents in the . . , , . , dollar upon long time, at six per Governor rorier, and be called the 1 Vr leeisla' ture together to consider it, with a recom mendation that ii should be accepted. ' That bodv refused to accept, as they did also a proposition of fifty cents in the dollar, with the same interest, ine wnoie su eject was brought before the 'people in the last elec tion, and fully discussed by the candidates on both sides. The result was that the peo ple, through their representatives of the last session, alter much debate and conflict of views, agreed npon a middle ground, that is, to pay one-half the debt in thirty years at four per cent, interest. The act, however, required that if a certain proportion of the creditors gave notice of their willingness to accept to the governor, he should submit the Question to the people. He has officially an nounced that the required number have sig nified their willingness to accept, and ordered that the people meet at their respective pre cincts and vote on the question on t he seventh ot August next. On this question I am asked to give my opinion to tne puunc. l nave no hesitation in complying with the request, and feel that I am only performing the duty of a cood citizen in doing so. The question is not now whether the legislature has power to contract debts and bma the people, for that has been everywhere, and by all the courts, settled in the affirmative; nor is it whether there wete irregularities or frauds n the issuance of the bonds, lor their va lidity has been acknowledged over and over again, by all the governors and legislatures since their issuance. It is too late now to make any defense on these grounds. I do not now propose to argue these questions. but simply to give my own opinion for what it is worth. In thiB opinion 1 leel clear upon full examination of the subjects. Then, it only remains for the people to d. oiJe be tween the payment ot a debt tor. which they have bound themselves by their representa tive, or so much ot it as the creditors are wii;;n,7 ta accept, or repudiate it. There are extremists on lioth sides. Some say they are unwilling to pay less than the whole amount, as it would tarnish the fame ot the State to puy less than tne amount they owe, and others, on various grounds, insist that nothing Bhonld be paid, the middle ground is that assumed by me legislature, which is to pay one-half in thirty years, at four per cent., and upon the adoption or rejection cf which we are to vote. This is a compromise ot the conflicting opin ions ot the legislature, after full considera tion &nd much debate and difficulty. It is also a compromise with the creditor?, which is fair and honorable nnder all the circum stances of the case to both parties, and n-ill leave no stain upon our honor. The same course has been pursued by and with out sis ter soutnern states. J. bey are now relieved of the embarrassing subject and are on the high way to prosperity, with high credit and buoyant hopes and bright prospects. None of them have obtained be',ter terms, in view of their resources, than those offered to us in this proposition, ft would be disparaging to cor State to reject the terms tbat our neigh bor btates nave accepted, should we not, as fair and just people, be content with the re mission of one-half of onr debt? Will not our sister States and the world repard us as disgraced, and no more to be trus-ed, or even respected, if we fail to accept a compromise so fair and liberal? It will not only affect tho credit and standing of the State, but that of every citizen and his posterity. We have Men the effect of repudiation upon the character cf Mississippi. At any sacrifice all wise citizens will avoid such a fate for Tennessee. If this compromise is rejected, the judgment of just men evotywhera will be against us, and the creditors will be sustained in every possi ble effort the law will allow to coerce us to pay the whole amount. They have already made a strike at onr railroads, and it they succeed in making them liable, as some very able counsel think they will, expensive and embarrassing questions wilt follow between them and the State. But if they fail other modes of making the State liable will be re sorted to by the exasperated creditors. These ! have been pointed out and forcibly presented ! i,- i.ni i.,o. ; u; i.i uj vwugi vyvi J ck m uu kuid aiKUUlcULH (ID this subject. Creditors feeling that they are right, and their most liberal propositions for coinprcci.'se rejected, with public opinion on their side, will rosort to every mode of com pulsion that the learning and ingenuity of the ablest counsel can suggest. Although these are considerations which may properly be looked to in makintr. up our decision, yet I would place the case on higher grounds those of honesty and good taith. We have the lasting benefit of the money received on our bonds, in our railroad system, and the wealth and prosperity it has produced. May it not be asserted with confidence that we could not have built a single railroad without this aid ? From this source alone we will re ceive al least one hundred thousand dol lars into the State treasury annually, besides other advantages too varied and nu merous for enumeration. Now, a rejection of this compromise would be a declaration to the world that Tennessee is not willing to pay one-half of the amount of money borrowed to make the improvements that have secured to be-r people and their posterity such incal culable benefits. Can any fair man think it honest to retain and enjoy the benefits and refuse to pay the price even one-half of it ? That is the case plainly stated. But in addi tion to the justice of the case, the acceptance of the compromise will relieve the people from this all-absorbing and vexed question in their future elections, and leave them with a debt that can be easily managed without op pression, instead of one ot doubt the amount of whicn they cannot relieve themselves without dishonor and reproacrf. Can any patriotic and intelligent citizen hesitate as to bis course, who will look to all these inevit able consequences? Let us get clear of the millstone on our necks by assuming a burden we can bear, and preserve our honor. Not half of the voters have any pecuniary in terest in the question, as they have no taxes to pay, except a poll-tax, which cannot be applied to any other purpose than to common schools, but all men and their children alter them have a vital interest in the credit and honor of their State. They have not even the excusa of the influence of pecuniary interest for voting against the settlement. But they may well be governed by the purer and higher motive to save their State, in which they expect to leave their children, from the disgrace of re pudiation and breach of good faith. Can any one doubt that these direful results will fol low it the present proposition is rejected ? Can anv one expect, or should any just man desire, better terms than the remission of one-half of the debt for which we are bound by our bonds? The effects ot a failure to ac cede to these liberal terms will not be con fined to the State as a sovereignty, but will extend to every individual of the community who may enter into enterprises requiring credit. Our merchants, manufacturers and trades of every class will be under a cloud. Credit is indispensable for the pr6sperity of any community or individual without means, although it may be and oiten is abused. By this railroads and lactones and the capitol even of States are built. By this commerce isMiuiulated and agriculture promoted, and by this the poor man has a chance to become wealthy. Without it all their interests must ildgiiish, and none but the rich can prosper. All wise governments protect their credit first, no matter what else may suffer. Without it wars, even of defense, could not be maintained. The credit and good faith of a State or nation should be guarded as the apple of the eye. If it be true, as alleged, that the obligations against us are tainted with fraud, or issued without compliance with the conditions imposed by the statutes author izing them, it is required by the plainest principles of equity and justice that if they could be avoided and set aside on that ground the State would be required to refund the money received upon them. This is on the principle that he who seeks equity will be re quired to do equity. Then, if the argument is correct that the bonds are not binding npon the State for want of power or fraud in their issuance, we would still be bound to refund the millions received upon them, with inter est. This is both the law end justice on the subject. So there is no aspect in which the case can be presented that will relieve us from the obligations to pay the debt we owe. Ac cording to the rules of law andequity.we owe it all, but a chance of honorable relief is now presented by paying one-half, in thirty yeaw, at a low interest. Who can hesitate on such a question? But it is said we are too poor, and not able to pay it! O, "tell it not in Gath, nor publish it in the streets of Aikalon," that the people of Tennessee are not able to pay twenty-four million dollars. It is humiliating to hear the plea of insolvency put in for a great State and the benefits of the bankrupt law de manded. I am not now, nor have I ever been the holder of one ot these bonds, nor do I know in whose hands they are. I have no intereot except as a citizen who loves his State, and glories in its honor and high standing both at home and abroad. The record of my life is made np, whatever it may be, and I have no inducement to court popu lar favor as an aid to future aspirations by any courae I may take on this or any other question. But if any considerations I have presented should contribute in the least to the success of this measure, which is so big with importance to the well-being and future greatness of this glorious State which has honored me above my deserts in the past, I shall feel ,"t.I have done some service to my country, (jta gran urnc tne people may be wise and decide this all important question in that way which will save the honor ot the State, and result in the greatest good to the present and future generations. BOBKET L. CABFTHEBS. YAZOO C1T1T, MISS. The Yellow-Fever Mcare asd tbe aar antlne Tne Inconveniences to wbieh the Traveling Public 1 Subjected Kxantples. From an Appeal Correspondent. Yazoo Citt, July 13. Little did I think when I visited your sanctum a few days ago, and promised to send you a few items from time to time, concerning matters, in this sec tion of country, that my first letter would be on so melancholy a subject as ybilow-fever, but the excitement is so great here that it is the only theme I can write about at present. For this state of affairs as they now exist somebody is responsible. This place, like New Orleans, Yicksburg and Little Rock, has closely quarantined against Memphis, and all from the effect produced by a telegram which came across the wire, about eleven o'clock Thursday morning, the tenth instant, sta ting: "Yellow-fever in Memphis. Great ex citement. A perfect stampede from the city." Of course this produced a terrible alarm. Now I left Memphis for this place, on the Mississippi and Tennessee train, at three o'clock Thursday afternoon, and up to that time found no stampede. 'lis true that up to that time only one train had left tor the north, and, although the article in the morn ing papers was all the talk on the streets, no stampede or very extra eroitement was visible to me; what happened aiur I left I know not. But the qnf-stion is, Who is "responsible for this dispatch, sent so catly in the morning. On the strength ot it an order for a strict quarantine ot Memphis was issued by the board ct supervisors. When I reached Vaugban Station on Friday morning, to take the stage fr this place, I was told even at that time I would not be permitted to en ter Yazoo City. However I arrived here at two o'clock in the afternoon and found tbat it had been fully discussed whether myself and a niece of Dr. Mitchell, of Memphis, should be permitted to come to Yazoo, and all this because we had lett Memphis at three o'clock in the afternoon of the day one death from yellow-fever had been reported in the Memphis papers. Now, it is all right to publish facts and give all necessary warning to the public, but I do think that the doctors and proper authorities should have at least waited a day or two beforo producing such a state of affairs as exists to-day against Memphis. 1 have beeu a resident ot tb.9 Blufi City twenty-six years, have passed through the greater part of four epidemics with my family, yet still when I told the real state of the case as it existed in Memphis when I left, it could hardly be credited in the face of the dispatch which had preceded me but twenty-four hours. But to show you how Memphis is injured already, I will state 1 purchased in Memphis, on Wednesday be fore any fever was reported) a lot of oils, paints, etc , from Cole & Co., to be shipped on Thursday, at ten o'clock in the morning, on the Grand Tower, for this place via Vicks- burg; they were shipped, but before the boat reached Vicksburg she was stopped and ordered to carry the goods from Memphis back to that point. From f his the citizens of Memphis can form their own opinion as to the damage done. A great mistake has been made. Like the charge at Balaklava, some body has blundered, and Memphis is the suf ferer. I am glad to see that the old Appeal is sounding the true note. In this, the time ot Memphis a trial, it appears to me that this great organizing of health boards all over the country will do more harm than good if they continue to go off at half-cock and without proper discretion. It was my intention to bring my family to this place (where I am at present doing business) if the fever became epidemic. Now. it is impossible to do so: and as I saw and felt when in Memphis, that mere was no immediate necessity to do so. nor is there yet, still the old Bluff City is cut ott lrom 'all the world and the rest of man kind," and I see by tho papers that withal the doctors are not happy.

BAYARD, Before he Takes his Departure for Europe, Tells what he Thinks About the Political Situation and the Extra Session, and what Re sulted from, it. The Positions Taken by Hayes Wholly Untenable To Admit his Claims of Power of Legislation would Convert the Executive into a Third House of Congress. New York World interview: "I was op posed to the extra session, and much re gretted that it was called; and yet hiatory will say that the event was unavoidable, ior in the attitude which the Democratic party, representing the public sentiment of the country in the two Louses of congress, and Mr. Hayes, representing the Republican party and having possession of the executive department, respectively took, the collision was bound to occur; and this extra session may prove ot great use in defining the rela tions thai-, must be expected to exist during the remainder of Mr. Hayes's term between him and the dominant majorities in the two houses. Urged on by the "stalwart' cabal of his own party Mr. Hayes has been led to make claims of power and to tafre a position wholly untenable. The issues which he has thus unwisely raised are fundamental in their character, and it is well for the American people to te recalled to the truo nature of their government and to the principles npon which hopes for its maintenance are to be based. The Democrats have demanded nothing at the extra session that was not just, fair and timely. They promptly passed the appropriation bill supplying the army with twenty-seven million dollars, and sim ply proposed to repeal a provision of law which, according to its author, Sena tor Jacob Howard, ot Michigan, was confessedly a war measure only, and which permitted troops to be brought to the polls of election to keep the peace. It is difficult to see how any man friendly to a government of law should desire to continue such a mean uie in time of peace. In fact, the question of holding elections without the presence of armed force does not bear discission; and it was a lamentable illustration of the intensity and blindness of party feeling when not a single member of the Republican party in either house ventured to record his vote in favor of the repeal of so un-American and indefensible a law. No more forcible argu ments nor vigorous condemnation of such uses ot the army are needed than are sup plied by public speeches and opinions of two members ot Mr. Hayes s cabinet Mr. t- arts and Mr. Schurz. Bat it seems that Mr Hayes could not withstand the threats and growls of the 'stalwart' leaders of his party, and suffered himself to be depressed below the proper level of the duties of his place. lo the demand for broad and high states manship that the situation made he re sponded in the tone of a mere party poli tician. The bill which promptly and fully supplied the army he returned with a state ment of his objections, which took the form ot a running debate in reply to certain members of the senate and house. He had been referred to, as I think, unwisely and improperly in the course of this debate in terms ot scant respect, but it was clearly a most exceptionable and nnprece dented thing for a 1 resident, under the cover of a veto message, to enter into purely per socal debate with the two houses. Bat one thing he has succeeded in, and that is to show that he has the will and power to ob struct the passage ot laws by an arbitrary veto power, based npon party discretion, and thus throw the government into confusion and fill the public mind with apprehensions. by preventing congressional supplies. There ib nothing substaLtially vetoed by Mr. Hayes in the army bill as first presented that he has not approved in the army bill which he signed, lo the persistence, therefore, ot the Democratic houses of congress the country owes the affirmation of the treat nrinciole .J..:- i t trOiu military lorce. What is ycur judgment upon the new doctrine which the Republican organs tak that the President is a co-ordinate and equal part ot legislation upon all questions of policy, expediency and necessity?" lhat is another question tbat has been raised by the pretensions of Mr. Hayes in his collision with the congress. The result of his claim of power over legislation would, in affect, convert the executive department into a third house ot congress, ihis is a fanda mentally false and dangerous position and arises from either a total misconception or a partisan distortion of the true functions of his efhee. The first article of the constitu tion provides that all legislative powers therein granted shall be vested in a congress of the United States, which snail consist of a senate and bouse ot representatives the ad jective ail, tne vero "vested and tne noun 'congress have unmistakable meanings. This law is explicit. No false interpretation of the subsequent provisions of the constitution which vest in the .President a qualified veto power can destroy the enect ot tbat reading This veto power is expressly subject to a two- tmras vote by the two houses, and tne ob jects for which it was delegated are stated by Alexander Hamilton to be the protection ot tne constitution from overthrow, to pre vent invasion of the just prerogatives of the other Departments ot tne government by the legislative branch, and generally to remedy and check inadvertent and hasty legislation. But the construction given by the President in his veto messages at the extra session would necessarily involve not only tne assumption ot legislative power by the executive branch, but the practical absorption ot all the poweis of the government to his hands. If such reasoning is t ) bo maintained, the American people must contemplate an executive branch ot the government armed with powers ample for its own indefinite perpetuatiorr-and which will inevitably be used for such purposes. In the face ot such an issue an raised and emoha' sized by the President and his counselors at the late extra session, I deem it of the ut most importance that the people of this country should comprehend his meaning and tne enect oi tne powers lor which he con tends, and which, if allowed, will be fatal to tnat distribution ot powers which our fore fathers deemed to be essential to the preser vation ot liberfy. Ihe President intimates although not clearly, in his last veto message tnat ne nas tne rigntiui power to convene congress and to keep it in session until ap propriations sufficient in his arbitrary judg ment are niaae ior tne entorcement or a-iy law. This claim, if examined, will be found to contain an assumption of legislative power and discretion whiuh it is not unfair to call usurpation. By the unvaried custom of our government from its commencement all appropriations for its support under its laws are made annuaily. In the case ot the army the constitution expressly in hibits any appropriation for more than two years. Yet, if the power be conceded which has now been claimed by the President, no retrenchment will ever become possible until he shall consent to the repeal of the law whobe execution he claims to be necessary, and of the expenses of executing which he constitutes himself sole judge. That is what I mean by saying that the doctrine contend ed for by Mr. Hayes would lead virtually to the absorption of entire legislative power in the executive branch, for it would, in effect, make all appropriations perpetual and de stroy the power of congress to exercise any discretion over the amount or the uses to which they should be applied." "The President having taken this position, what is likely to be the result?" "He has taken it in his veto of the legisla tive and judicial appropriation bill, and if he is suffered to maintain it by the popular voice, that which Hamilton termed a 'dishonorable station in public affairs' must come." "What is your opinion of the veto of the bill lor marshals' expenses?" "An examination of the revised statutes will disclose how little justification Mr. Hayes had for tho veto of the separate bill pro viding six hundred thousand dollars for the expenses, fees. etc.. of United States marshals. He says in sub stance that because the bill sent him ex cluded the application of any moneys thereby appropriated to pay deputy marshals for po litical services at the polls of election, and be cause it forbade any officer of any depart ment to 'incur any liability' for such ser vices, that therefore his power to execute election laws was interfered with and pre vented; wherefore for that sole reason he re fused to assent to the legislation. Section 3678 of the revised statutes represents and adopts laws passed in 1809 and in 1868, and these and tho section expressly prohibit the application of any money except to the objects for which it was especially ap propriated. Section 3679, which was the act of July, 1870, forbade any department of tho government to expend any Bum id excess of the appropriation by congress and J. beg you to italicize these words or to involve the gov ernment in any contract for the future payment of money tn excess of such approprtattons. 11 would puzzie a court, much less plain citizens, to see why a bill should be vetoed which forbade an officer to 'incur any liabltty for the government when an ex sting statute plainly forbade him from involving the government in any con tract for the same object. Yet the law of July, 1870, was passed by a congress having two-thirds Kepnblicaa majority in both branches and was approved bv Grant, a Re publican President. "Would not all the reasons which Mr. Hayes presents for vetoing the bills passed by the Democrats at the last 'congress apply with equal force to the existing provisions of the law?" "Certainly, and in some cases with greater force." "Was enough good done at the extra ses sion to pay for the trouble of convening con gress?" "res; I think the repeal of the test-oath and the formation of the improved system of obtaining impartial juries were alono a suffi cient recompense to the country and to con gress for all the expense and harassment of the season. It is 'evident that these most powerful and necessary re forms found little favor with the President, who vetoed the appropri ation bills with which they were at first com bined without a word of intimation that he approved of any features of the bills. For the reasons I have given. I consider the re sults of the extra session to have been valua ble to the country. They have wiped out a feature of war legislation permitting the use of troops as po'ice at the polls. They have removed a test-oath disgraceful to our age and country. They have made a step toward the abolition of the Ridical system of packing juries m political cases. They have exposed to the people schemes for the centralization of power, and for the people to be forewarned is to be forearmed, bo 1 consid er the results of the extra session to have been favorable to I be good government of the country and creditable to the Democratic ma- lonties, by whose exertions these valuable reforms have been achieved despite tne ou structivenesa of the Republican executive." HOW TitAOE la New York City was AOVcted by the Yellow-Fe-vor Panic The Tele gram of a Memptal Mer chant as to the A pathy or the People. New York Commercial Advertiser, 11th: The breaking out of yel.ow-t'ever in the city of Memohip. which has already produced a serious enect on the business ot Cincinnati and St. Louis, is not likely to disturb trade in this city, unlets the scourge should continue far into September. A private dispatch re ceived this morning by one of the merchants of New York confirms the report that the peo ple of Memphis have become greatly fright ened by the reappearance ot yellow-fever, and that most of the respectable inhabitants are leaving the place hurriedly. The dispatch savs 'the authorities are to blame for the re turn of the scourge, to a certain extent; but the people themselves are so apathetic that thev do not arouse themselves to the sense of the danger until death and disease are at their very doors.' The business with the south, so far as Memphis is concerned, is said to be transacted more in this city during the months of September and October than in the spring. Among the dry goods mer chants a representative of a large wholesale house said to a representative of the Com mercial this morning that most, if not ali, of the orders given in this city were long ago fi led; consequently there is very little oppor tunity lett tor the countermanding ot orders The creater portion of the EDrinz and sum mer trade of Memphis for articles of general consumption is transacted with St. Louis and Cincinnati, and these cities would naturally feel the first effect of aiy scourge or epi demic, 60 far as commercial operations were concerned. The business done here is more with regard to goods imported from foreign markets, and wnich the southern people de sire to hava as speedily as possible, even be fore it is possible that the same class of goods can reach the markets cf the western cities located along the great watercourses. This trade is done in the tall, to as to meet the wants of the fashionable season. In the gro- 4rmii7 tne tmto.iti u Wnw Yeia.r-iii- brace more the luxuries than the necessities of life, and include foreign dried fruit, etc Th,is,, trade is now over until next fall, and tne yenow-lever, it oi snort duration, wouia have no enact npon it except perhaps in re moving from the earth some of the regular consumers who might otherwise have re quired the goods during the coming winter, Many of the large houses here have decreased their business relations with Memphis in con sequence of the losses sustained through the epidemic of last year, and have not sought to regain it during the recent traveling season in the south, ihe business with Memphis is said to be too uncertain and risky to be worth the cultivation; not so much on ac count of the people themselves as to the ter rible effects of the climate. Ia the provision business, the effect of the prices at St. Louis and Cincinnati is not likely at present to be perceptible here, although it is probable that the closing ot the southern mar kets might cause more goods to be sent east than would usually be the case. It is, how ever, cot fully ascertained that the yeliow fever is in any way likely to become a scourge. One merchant who has bad a long residence in the south said that the recent hot weather. which has been felt there as well as in this city, was very likely to promote the ravages ot the disease, and fo cause it to spread rap idly, unless the operations of the National board of health ehould be more perfect than those ot local origin. He feared, however, tbat the work of cleansing the city of Mem phis has been too long delayed to bo effective in securing good health this summer.

A Topeka correspondent of the St. Louis Bepublican, writing on the ninth instant says: "Notwithstanding the thermometer ranges from ninaty-fiveto ninety-eight in the shade, and a fresh arrival of two hundred colored refugees last evening, the capital city looks fresh and gay this morning. Oiten has the question been asked, what does Topeka do w.th so many ot tnose uegtoes lrom the south that are weekly being skipped there? But few of them remain io the city very long. They are very quietly shipped, a few at a time, to places farther west. They have all been schooled to tell one tale, and, having repeated it so often, 1 verily beneve they think they are telling the tru'h. Governor St. John manages to keep a few in the bar ! racks near the junction o" thd Kansas Pa etne aud Atchison, iopeb.a ana binta te railroads, oa Ih-J north sido c the Kansas river.

While they remain at the bar racks they are clothed and led, but so soon as one of them goes to worir. the daily ration of himself and family are cut off, thus offer ing them the greatest inducement to remain idle. It is much more cimouit to procure labor in this vicinity now than before tho in flux of the refugees. A great many of the more thoughtful Republicans are becoming disgusted at the great ado made over them and are heartily sick and tired of the course pursued by Governor St. John in trying to maintain them in their idleness. Ihe wave is beginning to recoil, and woe to that man who is caught before it. The laboring classes, and that comprises the greater portion of the population ot Kansas, are al ready beginning to murmur. They cannot see why it is that a poor white man, who is out of employment, out ot money, with no mends no home, half-clad and nothing to eat, ii called a tramp, and if Been hunting work and asking for something to eat is arrested as -a vagrant and put to worlt oa the chain-gang wnile the colored man is taken into the par lor. the best robe put npon him, the fatted calf killed and a great ado made over him I They are trying to solve the problem: Why is it that a poor white man is not as good as anegro r Uut such is rtaaicausm. congress man Ryan has returned and is busy shaking hands with his constituency, lie is loud ir his anathemas against the 'rebel congress; says the rebel plan is toflodmamze the coon try throw out States enough to elect the Demociatic nominee; wants Grant noml nated; says he is the only man that has clock enough to takehis seat if elected.

Her Sanitarj Condition Last Tear when the Yellow-Fever Prevailed with Unparalleled Ylolence, and What it is Now Aftr a Few Months of EffectlTe Sanitary Work What Is Said of Us Abroad by Leading Journals We Must Keep On Cleaning to Assure Our People Free dom from Epidemics. Buffalo (N. Y.) Commercial: The author ities of Memphis represent that they do not fear that yellow-fever will become an epi demic in that city, and we devoutly hope that hey are justified in being thus encouragea. But the wort of it is that the ground taere is well prepared for the sowing of the Beed of fatal roestiience. in the Utstory of tne iei low-Fever, published within the past twelve months, the author, Mr. Keating, said of Memphis: mum of Kfcnlson tiaremert were decaying and senalng forth a poison tnat none In the city limits could avoid, and tLe soil was reeking with the offal and excreta of ten thousand fa-uilles. There was no organized scavenger system, no means by which the a-tlies nnd garbage could, as It should, be dally catted away. The accumulations cf forty years were decaying upon the surface; a bayou dividing the city. mm wnip.n wrh tne recemacie vi iui cumeuis ui privies and water-cl--sets, was sluggish and without current, owing to the want of water and the fact that there had been scarcely any rain for several weeks.

The streets weie filthy, and every Hflllctlon that could ag gravate a disease so cruel seemed to have been pre pared for It by the criminal neglect or the city gov ernment, which turned a deaf ear to the persistent appeal ot the press. This was in 1878. Those who are informed say there has been some improvement during the past twe've montns, out me ciiy is sun "a bayou, with its dead careaiaes, its stag nant water, its putrid pools, the rotten jn icoi sou pavem-int. and the poisonous cellars." IS MEMPHIS A CLEAN CITY? New York Jleraid: "lheretore we con sider it wise on the part of tho Memphis board of health to encourage the people to run. I'ernaps, also, tnat uoara is cognizant of facts not perceptible to all of us wnich in duce it to consider that the room of about half the population may be preferable to its company as the hot weather comes on. Statements are given to the public apparent ly on official authority that tne sanitary con dition cf the city is excellent, and the state ments may be true; but the tact that tney seem to be official is against tnem. vve know how that is ourselves. If the money appropriated for sanitary purposes haa been spent we are sure to have official certificates that tne work has been done. It may never have been touched, however. Oar police com mission lias lrequent'.y aeciarea tue streets to be immaculate, when an ordinary cart miht be mired anywhere in six months' ac cumulations of average filth. Memphis has had her experience ot the same municipal system; and, indeed, that experience wjs a direct factor in the virulence of 'ast year s enidemic. Her sanitary condition was abom inable ere the lever came, and tne city naa no monev with which to improve it. There was no organized scavenger system. 'The accumulations of forty years were decaying npon the surface; a bayou dividing the city, and which was the receptacle of all the city filth, was sluggish and without current, ow ing to the want of water. Dead animals were decaying in many parts of it, and the pooh which had f ormed at the abutments ot the bridges were stagnant and emitted dead ly effluvia." Such ia an account of one ele ment of the sanitary condition of the city then. Is it in the same condition now ? Of ficial certificates are not evidence to the con trary." THE YELLOW-FEYEB IN MEMPHIS. New York Etenina Post: "Tne appear ance of vellow-fever in Memphis so early in the season would be a souica of very painful rrt, -..;,. a.t a7 timo, ul lb . aouuiy 80 now. when the horrors of last summer are so fresh in the public memory that the first sugcestion of tha return of the pestilence awakens the liveliest dread. It is woith while, therefore, to ask ourselves precisely what and how much the present return of the disease means for Memphis and for the country round about. There are certain observed facts which may guide us in such questioning of fate. It is noteworthy, in the first place, that the disease has appeared this year alirminglyjearly, several days earlier in deed than the occurrence of the first cases in New Orleans last year, and more than a month earlier than the Memphis outbreak last year; yet in that epidemic, beginning in the middle of August, Memphis had seven teen thoisand six hundred cases, and five thousand one hundred and fifty deaths from the disease. When we remember that in this country on epidemic outbreak of this disease does not come to an end or cease to endanger other cities until frost comes, the importance cf its early appearance is seen to be very great. It should not be forgotten, however, that tho appearance of a few cases of the disease does not necessarily portend its spread. There were eases in Brooklyn, last 5 year, in the Marine hospital, very early iu J the summer, from which no ill resulted to the city. Again, the careful re;ord made by Mr. J. M. Keating, in his History tf the YtUow-Fever, gives foundation for a good deal of hope that the cases reported in Mem phis are only sporadic. The record shows that yellow-fever epidemics, as a rule, do not follow each other in consecutive seats, while during the year following an epidemic sporadic cases are almost certain to occur. It is true we know too little respecting yeliow fever to predict any thing certainly concerning it, but these licta give room at least Icr hope. Again, so far as the history of the disease may t; tiken as an indication of its future, the present outbreak, even it it shall become epidemic in form, promises to bo milder in character and less rapid in its spread than that of last year. The observed facts indicate that yellow-fever originating locally from na tive or naturalized germs is always milder and alwajs spreads less easily than that which is imported either from other countries or other parts of this country. With all these grounds of hope, however, there are still rea sons for the gravest apprehensions. Both physically and morally, Memphis is in th worst possible hygienic condition. Her peo ple are in a state cf panic. H?r streets and SJwera and Gayoso bnyou are said to be. in no better condition thaa they were last year, when, in the language of Mr. Keating, "the accumulations of forty yvars were decaying upon tho surface; a baou dividing the city, and which was the receptade of the contenis of privies and water closets, was sluggish acd without current, owing to the want of water and the fact that there had been scarcely aoy rain for several weeks. Dead animals were decaying ia many parts of it, and the pools which bad formed at the abutments of the several bridges were stagnant and cov ered .with a scum of putridity, e unit ing a deadly tfHavia.'' For remaining in this condition, with rotting wooden pave ments, filthy streets, and about the least ade quate system of sewerage existing anywhere in America, Memphis is not to be excused, tenderly as we may pity her. Situated upon a high bluff, with the Mississippi river run ning at its base at a rate exceeding six miles an hour, Memphis has opportunities better than those of most cities tor cleansing her self, and the fact that she continues in filth is a shame to her and her people. Whatever opinion cne may hold with respect to tho in fluence of filth in the origin or spread of yellow-fever, there can be no doubt whatever that people living ha bitually in bad sanitary conditions are more ready victims of the disease than are those whose sanitary condition is good." YELLOW" JACK. Cleveland (Ohio) Ilerald: "Last March, at the opening of the extra session, there oc curred two or three unusually warm flays for that season of the year in Washington. The vernal heat caused a northern colleague of Hon. Casey Young, who represents the Mem phis district, to say to him in a somewhat se rious view tbat the President's call came too soon for the good of Mr. Young's health, for if the session had been postponed until the Lot weather of June and July, then, as tho yellow-t'ever broke out again, he could fly from Memphis to a healthy city, with the un answerable excuse of duty to his constitu ents. To this the southern representative made a very earnest rejoinder, saving there would not be the least evidence of yellow fever at Memphis this season that it was a standing-rule of the disease never to re visit in prompt annual rotation the points where it had raged, and that if yellow-fever made its appearance again in the south this year it would break ont in some of those districts where it had not manifested its deadly power during the past year. These ideas of Mr. Youug, who was born and bred in the Memphis district, and whose unremitting exertions and heroic perional exposure in ministering to the pmicted at home last summer nave given him a reputa tion that will never lade, were widely cir culated in Washington, and generally in dorsed by the southern men. But a few northern gentlemen who had just returned from a commercial trip to Memphis declared that the sanitary condition of the city did not seem to be good when compared with the care taken and condition of the streets of cities in tha north. They sketched the state of the corporate highways and alleys of Mem phis in very strong colors, as auounding in filthy gutters, piles of rotten kitchen garbage, and pools of stagnant water. They said tnat when they called the attention of some of their mercantile brethren to this state of the streets the rejoinder was promptly made in effect that the city was reasonable clean, and that when the condition of these unclean spots was compared with the state of things an terior to the plague last summer there ap peared good reason for feeling very well sat isfied with the existing situation The con fident prediction ot Mr. Young eeems to have tailed, it we can place any reliance on tne dispatches which report Ihe outbreak of J el- low-lever again at Memphis: and it we are to be compelled to read day after day the coming summer and autumn the bulletins of misery and death in our southern cities, ss we did last year, then, indeed, we nave a sad and unhappy outlook before us. We are so constituted tbat desolation in Memphis is as bitter as ruin in Cieveland, for we know full well tbat knit togei'ier as we are by blood nnd commercial tief, no one section of this Union can suffer without reflex action 01 all the rest." 1X11AJK HAY, ARK.

In complying with your request 10 give a short account of the crop prospects in this (vicinity, I will begin by stating thut the drouth in this section has damaged the corn crop considerably, accord ing lo the opinion of some of our best farm ers at least one-half, especially the corn which was first planted, that which was planted later will make a good yield, provided it re ceives a good season. The oa.t crop, which promised an abundant yield early in the spring, was also damaged. The cotton crop never looked better and more promising than it does at the present writing, and should the seasons prove propitious, the yield will be very large and the average farmer will be compelled to tear down his cotton sheds and build "greater." The labor ayst -m is better tais year than at any former period since the war. The exodus fever does not seem to trouble the colored race in the least, they have been deceived so often by the carpet bagger and designing rascal they have ar rived at the wise conclusion to let well enough alone. The Appeal, has made hosts of admirers here and elsewhere by the bMd and manly position it took in regard to the repeal of the quinine tax, and many a poor sufferer of chills and ague will rise up and call it blesed. The health of the country at present is comparatively good. Since our last communication several buildings have been erected in our town, and a new hotel is in the courae of erection- New streets and alleys nave been laid cut. and an air of general improvement is discerned on every Bide, and all, too, without a gold or sil ver mine being discovered. It is due to the energy and enterprise of our people. Oar merchants are doing a large, lucrative and sale business. About thirty-five hundred bales of cotton and over two thousand tons of cotton-seed have been shipped from this point during this season. No surer means to destroy the fertility of our soil could be adopted than the practice of selling the seed It is to be hoped this pernicious practice will be abolished at no distant cay. Good larm ing lands range in price irom eighteen to twenty-five dollars per acre. Whenever they are free from overflow they cannot be bought for less than titty dollars. A good portion of the trade on the river 13 carried to New Orleans. More enterprise on the part of the Memphis merchants could control the msjor pcrtioj, if not all, of it.
