The New York Krtniiuj Ttlnjrum says that ''Fusion in Maine ha brought confusion to the Republican." Patti will exact ten dollars a Heat if she come to America next year. "Don't she wish she may gel.it?" Blaivf. has given the order, and the Dem ocrats of Maine are to be counted out. The work has been begun already. Mis- rights and women's wrongs are ad mirably contrasted in the "Baccalaureate address" published in another column. A majority of the colored voters of the shoe-string district arc opposed to Lynch. They say they arc satisfied with Chalmers. If W. P, Caldwell becomes a repudiation candidate for congrt ss in the eighth district the Lake Mar says "he's a goner forever and ever." J EFFERsoS defined a Democrat to be one who gave absolute acquiescence to the decis ion of the majority. What are the Wilson b-dlers? Tennessee could not send Indiana an abler speaker than John F.

Albert would make it lively for the lsjss repudiator. The wife of Ik-rnard Buell, the defaulting postmaster at Martin, Mississippi, has been appointed to take charge of the office in his place.

The State platform on which Judge Wright stands adv. nates "the strict maintenance of public faith, State and National."

Mhs.

We predict success for it. Memphis ami the whole south should make ' it a point to subscribe for it. The Hoinrt lioiild fad a place in every home, albeit there is a sting under its tail. There are United States six per cent. ImiihIs amounting to s-U.N".7,0Mt which will be refundable at the close of this year; S-.M:,-f s.-.lMI of six per cents refundable next July, and StMVUOcUiO of five per cent refundable next May. The election of a Democratic "ingress and a DemiK-ratic President, now practically assured, will, the Washington ftal thinks, enable iw to place this vast aggregate of $7Q0,12fk50 at three per cent. F.ievjieue we publish a rcjiort pi the proceedings of the commissioner to compro mise the debt of Memphis, hadt Baltimore last week. It contains a very fair and frank tatement of all the fact in the ease. The c iiuniissioner Were cordially received bv the landholders in Baltimore, who promised their co-operation in the endeavor now being I made to induce the New York bondholders j to come to terms. In this the commissioners ; have not lieen yet sin e, - till, as we learn from a tt legram from New York yesterday, which j says that "the Memphis bondholders ad- ' j.Minicd till Wednesday without decision." I'athkk Moonky, of Ncwberg, in a ser- j mrm delivered at the Fifth avenue cathedral. New York, on Sunday last, declared that ; the "Virjtia Mary was the Mother of her own I Ood, and was uot only the election of God the Father, through whom the incarnation cool. I is- accomplished, and the Mother of ( ml the Sin, but she was the spouse of the Holy t host, who was wedded to her in the most trauscciidanl anion that can be con (vived by man. Mary, the Mother of God, stands to-day more powerful than mi aruiv in battle array between the church and those w ho would accomplish its destruction." This i- the nioM recent utterance of the church on one of its most earnestly pressed dogmas. BKANTLY. It is with deep regret and a feeling of ham thflt we put in print a complaint made to us yesterday by one of the deacons of the Alabama street church. This g.-nlU-man says that for a few weeks past the con gregation has been greatly annoyed by the misdeeds of a number of ruffianly Ixiys who are in the habit of stn telling wire or cord across the sidewalk or roadway near the h u rch for the purpose of tripping and throwing down uedcalliaaa. Several ladies have been thus dealt with and been very se verely hnrt. lint wome still, the scoundrels aat Sunday ma eared the stejis of tlie churcli, and even the windows, with human exert -uient, to the disgust of worshipers, many of whom have been made sick by the stench thus raised. Anything more brutal and infamous than this has seldom fallen under our notice. A church dedicated to the worship of God should al ways be lu Id a' r i! sacred (specially from defilement. Every man is concerned in this, and every man in the neigblsirhood, lie his religion what it may, or whether he profess religion or not, owes it to himself and to his neighbor to lie active in snpressing the dirty, tilth v young Least-, who degrade human na ture by conduct that it is difficult to write of as it deserves. 'We call the attention of the police to this matter, and for the especial benefit of the scoundrels will say that the punishment for such conduct, if arrested and convicted, will be not less than 200 days on the island. We regret that it is not forty lashes well laid on by an experienced hand. TH I sol III VINDICATED BY XOKTII IU MEN. We publish in another column the address f the northern men who have settled in Vir ginia vindicating the south from the slanders of the Republican party. This address is signed by thirty citizens of Powhattan county, forty in Amelia county and about om hundred northern settlers in another county. This address should have a power ful influence on the northern people, as it is signed by both Republicans and 1 enns rats. and by men representing nearly every north ern State. This is a more in the right direc tion. The northern settlers in all the south ern States should follow the example of the northern men who have located in Virginia. There are thousands of northern men living contented, prosjierous and happy in the south ern States who are ready to testify to the truth of the address we publish, and to de fend our people against the false accusations that have boen brought against them by car petbag spies and disseminated in the north by unscrupulous politicians for party pur uoaca, If northern men who served in the Federal army own property in our midst, luemliers of the church, and known to the northern people as truthful citizens, volunta rily come forward and tell the true story of political affairs in the south and show how groundless and false arc the wicked slanders against our people, it does seem to us that there ought to be a stay to the tide of calum ny, and that the northern mind ought to be duabused of the prejudice made by the par- tisan liars. MKXATOK HARRIS .OX THE .HTI'MP. Senator!. C. Harris is making a brilliant canvass in Middle Tennessee. His speeches will infuse freshness and vigor into a contest that Is already hitter and exciting. What he says is always, worthy of the consideration of the people of Tennessee, for no man in In state has served them more faithfully and honeetly. We published ou Tuesday last a brief synopsis of Senator Harris's spaech at tiallatin, from which it was seen that he dis cussed the issues of the day ably, lucidly, and in admirable tone and temper. Acting upon the correct belief that it does not comport with the dignity of a United States senator to participate in the petty squabbles which divides and is leading the party to destruction, Senator Harris simply armoyatoed that he was a "State-credit Demo crat and favored the straight-out organiza tion of the party." The eternal principles of the Democratic party were so deeply in grained into every fiber and ligament of Senator Harris's existence that he could not find it in bis heart to make war upon his i l" ' Tennessee learned thepeo own party by holding a joint discussion with I P'e . ' mak an T are a Democrat, but would gladly meet any Re publican in Tennessee. A similar spirit of conciliation and refusal to engage in a war of 1 iciuoi rat against Democrat in political dis cussions and opposing candidates might lead to a satisfactory compromise which would prevent the transfer of the State to the Re publican party, whine extreme views in re gard to the acttlciucnt of the State debt, in--ti-ail of preventing repudiation, will increase the numlier of repudiators, for there is notli bg more thoroughly understood in this State than the fact that the jieople feel that they cannot and ought not to pay over fifty cents on the dollar. It was seen that the tone of Senator Harris's speech at Gallatin is calculated to unite and heal, instead of breaking down and destroying. If we can not prevent the election of a Republican gov ernor, we can prevent the election of a Re publican legislature, and thereby prevent that c i tain and inevitable repudiation which would be provoked by a disregard for the burdens which the Radicals have imposed uM.n the Jieople when in jmiwct in Teinusse-e an.l all the other southern States. It is the duty of the Democracy of Tennessee to stand ay it- nominee lor governor Hon. John V, Wright. He is making a gallant fight he hon.-sty and for his party whose ascendancy is necessary for the welfare of the State. The only safety lies in keeping within the organ ization. The contest is between Wright and Hawk ins, the most objectionable Iladical in the State. It is hoped that this will lie so demonstrated lx-lore the clec- lion that many who now pro pose to contribute to the election of. Haw f throwing a ote away on Wilson, will rally to the support of Wright. But if we cannot pn vent the election of an ob noxious Republican, all is uot lost if we can save the legislature and prevent the evils which a Republican legislature would entail upon the people by electing Maynard to the ' senate, and the State so j'n i awnajjfiud as to ' send half a dozen radicals to congress to war j pon Hancock's administration and the great illation is more to be ,1,- U k uj ! The man who is a Democrat from principle hates stultification more than be fears dis aster as every gisid cause lui its reverses, and its votaries cling still closer to it in adversity; but it is treason to party, a crime against country when defeat is brought about by the folly of obstinate, pig-headed leaders, whose counsels have produced a breach that can yet le bridged by concession and nnhipuciiiw T THE DKTOI RIMU ACOMAM A APFKAL I (K COHPKOMINE. The beautiful Andromeda was chained t a rock upon the coast, and for in cxiioscd to the devouring sea-monster which the wicked Neptune had sent to ravage the land. A gallant and amorous vquns warrior retaining from a victorious battle -field, was so i captivated with the beauty of the girl that nce freed her and turned the monster to whom she had 1h.ch dedicated into a rock. lion. John V. Wrlglit and Colonel S. F. Wilson, the two Democratic candidates for governor of Tennessee, can now fully appreciate the awful BUsjiensje of the imperiled little girl, (ax it seems that the cruel and h.ml-heai ted jieople of Tennessee have dedicated these two good men to such devouring Daonaten as them selves and, alas! they have not the beauty to attract and inspire some gallant and accommodating conqueror like Per seus to rescue them from themselves A couple of newspaper reporters have Is-n following in the w ake of the can- : continue to crowd the ears in spite of the fact I di.latcs for governor, Isibbir.g up and down that the elevated roads are thundering over- ! as the yawl bitched to the stern of a huge j head, and the stock of the Sixth avenue com steamboat rises and falls with the dancing j pany, which sold Mav t, 1878 (one mouth j waves, and their reports of the discussion" before the opening of the elevated railway I ! nave sicKcncn ami disgusted the puiuu ii is a contest as to which can play the biggest j game of brag. One makes Wright a huge anaconda who swallows Wilson without grease or decltuination. The other reporter insists that Wilson is an oratorical ogre, who always retires from the stand with the Issits of Wright kicking from his capacious mouth. All of a sudden these amiable men have been converted into roaring canni bals and hungry ogres devouring each other, and sometimes twice a day. If these reporters of such vivid imaginations are to be believed, so soon as the master of ceremo nies informs the gaping multitude, hi a stentorian voice, that the bloody scenes to which we have alluded are about to be enacted, straightway the excited populace rush pell-mell, like the Spaniards at a bull-fight, and secure the best seats for witnessing the anomaly of two men swallowing each other at the same time. So soon as comparative order is restored, the mild young ogre and the amiable anaconda, armed with scrap-books, begin to make a bo logna sausage of their gullets by stuffing them with human flesh. The fearful work goes on for many hours amid the shouts, applause, yells and laughter of the excited audience. Both men retire in good order and well con ditioned, to receive the congratulations of their friends. Then the two newspaper re porters commence business. Both harness up the swift-winged lightning to tell how the enemy was chopped to pieces, flayed alive, pounded into a jelly, ground to powder, and then swallowed. The people are represented as going into convulsions over the choice as sortment of anecdotes with which Noah amused his family in the ark, while Mrs. Noah and all the little Noahs were discuss ing the nine banded armadillo and enjoying the luxury of seeing the big menagerie without purchasing a ticket at the door. Not content with the brevity of dispatches, these two industrious reporters seize pen, ink and paper, and elab orate on the diabolism of two men swallow ing each other. Then their genius soars. Their descriptive powers having full play they make things hum. Like a blind horse in the bark-mill, which goes round and round from day to day, they repeat the same old tory, only changing the date and place. The people are nauseated with the sickening and stereotyped reports about these anacon das and ogres eating each other up. With a statement of facts, they are capable of draw ing their own conclusions. Every true and reliable Democrat in Tennessee, vho has so long labored to build up the Democratic party, reads with a sad heart these daily dis cussion between the two Democratic candi dates, because it will eventuate in the elec tion of Alviu Hawkins, who arrested, persecuted and robbed the south ern people as they returned to their desolated homes after the war. Unless there be a change Hawkins's election is inevitable; so is the election of Maynard United States senator possible. And these accomplished, the State will be redistricted so as to Increase the Republican member in congress. Is there no way to compromise and avert such a calamity? As thing now stand, the State cmiit Democrats are not accomplishing their purpose, neither are the bolters; but the Republicans are securing theirs with the certainty of fate. The elec tion of Hawkins means the payment of dol lar for dollar in the settlement of the State debt; the election of Wright means a settle ment at fifty cents on the dollar of only legal liabilities, and the election of Wilson means repudiation. With such a contrariety of views, the medium ground should be accepted as a compromise. Wright will, unquestionably, receive more votes than Wilson, and it is earnestly hoped that there will be a reaction on which he will ride into the office of governor of Tennessee. He is the nominee of his party; be is panoplied on the eternal principles of right and honesty, and we feel a desire for his election which surpasses that felt in any similar contest in Tennessee. But, as an honest and candid journalist, we tell the Democracy of Tennessee that there can never be a permanent settlement of the State debt without a reference of any settlement agreed upon to the people. Two years ago not going to stultify themselves and pretend to unlearn the lesson which was taught them in the Democratic school by Democratic teachers. The new light which dazzled the ; Sauls of the State convention has not yet ' struck down the people, for they believe, i as the Appeal believes, that the new doc i trine now preached that the people cannot j vote on any legislation that vitally con cerns their interest is the silly drivel of dem 1 agogues. Such a doctrine is abhorrent to the genius of our institutions. It is the doc ; trine of monarchs and tyrants all over the ' world, who act ujion the belief that they know better how to govern the people than ! the people know how to govern themselves. A strong government, either Federal or State, means a weak people and a centralized des potism. The record of nearly every State and county in the Union shows that similar questions have been submitted to the people, and if the Democrats of Tennessee are hon est in their efforts to avert the disgrace of repudiation they will not prolong a strife which will precipitate repudiation. The election of one who is for paying eTery dollar of the $J6,000,000 for which the State is liable, will largely in- w , , , mo n- unpalatable facts, bnt they are truths which will be verified by time. It is not too late for the Democracy of Tennessee to call a halt and try to reconcile a division which elects a Republican governor whose influence purchased to secure the payment of all the !',m'', l"ar or dollar will drive the people 10 repudiation. .ever did the n(H ilii of the hour demand a Democratic triumph in Tennessee more than at preseut. It is true much had blood has been engendered, and that there has been much crimination indulged in. that the elements of explosion have been so deeply planted and that the organ ization and integrity of the party will be shattered tor years to come. But surely, in view of the dangers ahead there is enough patriotism in the Democracy of Tennessee to reconcile an imbroglio which if left to exhaust itself iu HWn elect Alvin Hawkins governor and make repudiation inevitable. Implacable as are the hatreds between the Democrats of Virginia, even they have tried to heal their divisions. Cannot the Demo crats of Tennessee make the. same patriotic effort? The Democrat of New York were widely separated. A deep, yawning gnlf di vided them, but they met together and by mutual concessions and sacrifices united in a harmonious phalanx, and if the Democrats of Tennessee are not devoid of patriotism, consumed by jietty hatreds and tlie lust of office, they will make a final desperate ef fort to bring about that harmony, which will i prevent repudiation, dctcat Hawkins for tov anv days , , , ..

Tkerf. is n world of wisdom in the observa lions of the Chicago .'.- .'.-n , Aye touching the objections made to the elevated roads by the owners of the horse-car railroads of New York. For instance, the president and other ; officers of the Sixth avenue road, and nu merous other responsible citizens, during the , litigation to prevent the construction of the New York elevated roads, about three vcars ago. swore that the oration of the elevated roads would frighten the horses attached to the street-cars, cause numerous accidents and i practically make it impossible to operate the horse-roads. Nevertheless, these road are ! all in operation and nrosncriiur: naaaanaMM X O at on, cannot tie bought to-day (two rears aud a quarter after the opening of the ele- vated road above it) for less than 160. So it is often that we suffer more in anticipation than in realitv. The Republican congressional convention held at Lagrange yesterday exemplified the fierceness of personal politics by dividing one-half going for William R. Moore, the other for J. A. Hamilton. The latter in a dispatch to us claims to have the indorse ment of a large majority of the delegates, and will make the race. Those who pretend to know say that Moore will decline, and that a clear field will lie left for Hamilton, who seems to be the choice of the colored. Repub licans. However this may be, we do not think that Casey Young can be beaten. Even with colored Republicans he is the most pop ular man in the district to-day. Ex-(ioverxor Seymour, on Wednesday last, delivered a statesmanlike speech before the Democracy of Utica, New York, in tlie course of which he contrasted Garfield with Hancock, much to the disadvantage of the former, eulogizing the latter, as he deserved to be eulogized, as a statesman as well as sol. dier. He also pointed out the danger to which the republic is exposed from a strained interpretation of the constitution, and from the revival and adoption of the old Federal idea of making the United States a nation with national attributes, of which the gov ernment at Washington, clothed with corre sponding powers, shall be recognized as the sovereign representative, irrespective of any limitations put upon its jurisdiction by the provisions of the Federal compact. The speech is every way worthy of the aged states man who has repeatedly declined a renomi nation for the highest honor in the gift of the people. The opposing parties in Desha county, Ar kansas, made a square divide of the offices in their late election. Hon. L. A. Pindall, Dem crat, was re-elected represenative; J. P. Jones, colored, Republican, was re-elected county and circuit clerk; Isaac Bankston, Democrat, was re-elected sheriff; W. P. Peterson, Re publican, was re-elected county judge; R. 1 ed in an. Democrat, was re-elected coroner; Sam W. Williams, colored, Republican, was re-elected assessor, and B. F. Merritt, Demo crat, was elected treasurer. Notwithstand ing the numerous re-elections the campaign was spirited, though no bad feeling was man ifested. ' :- .

Kcit'i, aged fourteen years, and son of Loui Keith, furniture dealer, No. 197 Main street, was accidentally killed, near the corner of Adams and Third streets, under the following circumstances: He was driving a tpring wagon at the time, and near the corner above mentioned the horse became unruly and ran away. The wagon struck the rocks near the corner of the street, and the unfortunate youth was thrown out, the wagou overturning and falling upon him, crushing him in a fatal manner. Ife was taken ch arge of at once and Dr. Black ad ministered the usual remedies, but without avail. Ho died in a short time after re ceiving the injuries, his chest being crushed and spinal column broken. The last words he spoke were: "Tell mamma good-by." He was a good boy, the idol of his parents, and his death is deeply lamented by the friends of the family. The drunkard is a burden to himself as well as his friends, and both he and his friends will give, much to lie able to see re form and sobriety induced. But since intoxi cation bexximes a disease it requires a remedy of no unusual activity to reach the difficulty.
