THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 31, 188Q.
NORTHERN MEN Whoso Intrrrxts have Become Identified with the Peace anil Prosperity f the South Address the Free and Independent Voters of the North and Tell them That Fair Play and the Largest Measnre of Fairness and Liberality Character Is i the Southern People In their Private as well as Public Dealings with them. Kh iimond.Va., September Is. The north ern KtUen whime interests, have become iden tified with the enduring iieace and future Iiroaperity f the good people of the State of the houUi "are not idle or indifferent spectators of the spirit of party rancor and sectional fury which agitates the people of our native States of the arA with nil sorts of exag gerated Httetent from the stump and the press cttnecroing "ktikltix outrages," "im proper trewtmcnt of the poor negro," "bull cloiioc white settlers," "disloyalty at the snutb, etc. Neither are we unmindful of the duty whieh devolves upon u as citizen to place before our northern friends a frank, candid and truthful statement of the real con dition of civil and political affairs in thUour adopted State of the south. We hold that there is nothing that can contribute more to ward obstructing the way that leads to recon ciliation and eniiuring peace between the two rcat sections of our In-loved country than to crpetuatc Ktriinuul aniimmitiethv labored efforts of subtle itolil icians in search of place and wer to disguise the truth. We hold that after a long residence among the good people of the south, which has afforded us the ut most facility for frank, free and social busi ness intercourse wc have acquired a more Jmrfeet knowledge of their characteristics, labits, sentiments, feelings ami designs than peffaaaM living remote from ns. As wc view the people of the south from a northern standpoint, when we have lecn able to gar ner up from an abundance of facts and inci dent which have come under our ersonal observation, there is no foundation whatever to support the charge of attempting to abro gate the fundamental powers o( the govern ment, or to entertain the remotest idea of nullifying the just ami wholesome laws re lating to the elective franchise, for Vrvry elector, white or black, is accorded every privilege guaranteed by the election laws to vote freely without intiinidn'jou to cast his lawful ballot and have, it counted. We cannot reasonably r.xpect to extin guish all bitterness of feeling engendered by the follies of the I .ate conflict so long a etly trifles are magnified into gross enor mities, and our southern hflUhllll arc charged wttn nrutisii atir.iHitev inhumanity to warn DM nrum. .Never is human nature so quickly delerl as when men charge a jast ana Benen. p, opl- of prohibiting the nc Kr" .nink, to act, ami to enjoy the privi ''tJ1' id rational creatures. 1 he truth is, at a Li election precincts the two races meet and tion, styled North Mississippi lumbermen's association, with A.

From an Appeal Correspondent.! Mocs-d Landing, Mws., September 13. I have put myself to a good deal of trouble to find out about the crop of cotton, and we here have not a half crop, Washington county the same, and as far down as heard from, to New (Weans, Louisiana. The New York Bulletin gives its reports and Memphis takes her as a standard. We know more about cotton than New York, and if Memphis has direct trade with foreign part and dispatches, who look to New York for her market, we in the south know that there has been more futures than can lie raised in four years, yes more than will be in eight years. We know the crop is short in this State and Louisiana. Texas has forty counties claiming short crops. Alabama has over twenty counties. Georgia has a short crop. -Then, where is the big crop? I admit up to the tenth of August we had the best prospect I ever saw in the bottom ; hut the rain from that time up to the present and the army worm have ruined the crop. There is no farmer who stays at home and attends to business claiming a half crop. The farmers who stay around stores are ready to give a good report, but you must remember they are not the farmers, neither are the candy sellers the merchant from whom we buy our corn, mess pork, flour and meal. We have done no picking as yet. It is now raining and all the leaves of the cotton are falling off and the bolls sprouting. So you sec we nave no chance for a half crop, and we arc in the heart of the cotton country. Greenville says the same.

I lie same spirit of impartiality is man ifested in all the judicial departments, where verv jury impaneled for trial of civil and criminal cases i strongly tinctured with col ored jurors, while in very many magisterial districts we have colored magistrates to ad minister the law. So, too, in the distribution of the public school fund, and in the or ''amr.ation ol the Irec schools the same undeviating impartiality is strictly adhered to. In short, the lives, fortunes, liberties of the colored race are as safe in the hands of the chivalrous sons of the south as thev would ! in the hands of the most civilized and humane on earth. Now, what has in luecil severe political moralists to declaim so harshly against the generous people of the south? t'hieflv this, that the priiuarv cause which engendered the conflict has long since cased to exist, flic rights of all races are conceded to be free and equal before the law. There is nothing to quarrel about except the spoils of office. Hence recourse must be liail to faction, to imaginary wrongs inflicted upon the freedmen of the south. Nothing will appease the conquerors bnt to hold th sword of conquest over the heads not of the inferior race, but over their white brethren, who must bu re pre entcit as the bane of lib erty and public spirit, for what puriKise Let our northern friends answer the mighty Question for themselves. Hut must it be said of us that the passion for place anil power is so strong as to absorb every other principle; that the sense of justice, honor, truth anil decency is -overborne in the great struggle for political supremacy.' Vt reckon no such hase aspersions will attach thvinselves to northern settlers, whose chief si and our common country. Of the social lations which now exist between the s?r- manent settlers and our southern hretliren we are pleased to say they are of the most happy nature. Whether we meet for mutual improvement in knowledge, business and morals, at the social entertainments, or sit hn'ethei- at the holl of rt orshile or loin with our children in the union Sabbath-schools which everywhere abound, a reciprocal feel ing of the utmost kindness and good will pre vails, and the most salutary and gratifying results of these intercourses is productive of frequent intermarriages, which tend the more xtrongly to rivet the ties of affection anil brotherhood Is-tween the two sections. Here we have another reason why all should depre cate the lollies, passions and prejudices of anv nartv. sect or taction which has not to its sole end anil aim a perfect restoration of harmony and fraternal good-will. Our at tachmc nt to our new homes, to everv scene snd object, to the mild temperature of th climate, toithe splendid characteristics of the sople, increases in projmrlion to the contin uance of our residence. Here, indeed( we are permitted to rejoice in that protection ami freedom, that lilsrtv of sentiment which the ninth everywhere affords. We rejoice when we consider this portion of the universe which we call America is our common conn try. Though divided into smaller States for e-ovcrnmcntal conveniences only, under the guiding hand of Providence we are united, prosperous and "happy, in the free enjoyment ol the ireneral principles ol popular govern nient. Of all the distressing evils which uiHict a State or nation and retard progress in the development of the great re source of either the one or the other, are those which spring from sectional abuse; in that it tends so strongly to pur pirn's of a private malice, disturbs the peace and tranquility of society, and effectually bars the great dnor to immigration, the great propelling power which converts the howling wilderness into a garden resplendent with animated life and beaiitv villages swell to teeming cities, magisterial districts expand to populous counties, and States to wealthy empires within themselves. Then why should we envy the happiness of one man or one sec tion over the other? When all have an equal chance in ihe pursuit of either the renown of the one adds to the glory of the other. The greatest advantages in private life alone are realised from the practice of induMrg, ftaaat rdyr and humanity. All of these noMe refine ments reader individuals happy and pros perous wherever practiced, and contribute toward rendering government as great and as flourishing as the people. These are self-evident fact which should be pondered by every citiicn, and pro pounded by every true statesman whose heart dents for the welfare of the nation. Narrow indeed are the Itoundarie of that wretched statesmanship which liends the best energies of the mind toward a perpetuity of sectional dissensions or foments internal iMw-ord among the people. How much more desirable and necessary to enjoy a better feeling of brother hood, cemented by the ties of friendship and good-will; to join in one n nimon effort to abolish forever all recollection of past diffi culties, and to unite in one generous emula tion to forgive and forget the miseries of the past. Would not all sections derive a greater satisfaction to cherish and promote by all means in their power a more christian feel ing of harmony and reconciliation.' Surely this end may Is- accomplished by adopting a general resolution to guard against all unrea sonable insult ami triumph ol one party over he other; to encourage moderate opinions; no taunts; no unhappy allusions. In a word, to persuade each other that Isith parties man ifested a loo precipitate .eal in opening Upon each others sanguinary warfare. Thus keep balaBM in the praise and censure which we are prone to bestow on one side only. The nirreeable prospect of present and fu ture happiness of the Magic or the nation depends upon moderation. Inspired by the more loftv sentiments of forgiveness and moderation; the mind of the truly great will sink back from the senseless taint of the cold bbssled demagogue and place-seeker, and, swelling with conscious pride and the more teiu.er emotions of humanity, will rise to the more exalted sphere of the christian states man snd patriot citixen.

The people will be addressed on the occasion bv the following distinguished gentlemen: Hon. Van H. .Manning, lion. r. i . nanns, of nennumia, and Hon, H. C. Watson and C A. Marshall, of our county.

A SPECK OF WAR the Horizon or GarHeld'a Mate While and Black Winer at Lofcirerheads. Baltimore American, 16th: That the city of Memphis, Tennessee, owes a considerable amount of money, and has owed it for quite a time; that the interest Upon the indebted ness has not been paid for years, and that the charter of the citv was regaled a couple of years ago, are fact pretty generally known; and that some Baltimorians are anx ious creditors is also a matter not altogether a secret. The why and the wherefore, all around, Is hot fully in possession of the pub lic, and inasmuch as Baltimore holds the ob ligations of Memphis to the extent of some where in the neighborhood of $500,000, and has been a trifle nervous as to the settlement, the presence in the city of a number of gen tlemen from Tennessee is a matter of no lit tle moment. In the January, 1878, term of the Tennes see legislature, the charter of the city of Memphis was repealed or abolished; in other words, the city, as a city, was "wiped out." A joint resolution of the legislature empow ered and instructed the governor to appoint: committee of five gentlemen to lay Ik-fore the creditors of the .ex-city a statement of the condition of its affairs, and to endeavor to arrange with them a settlement of its indebt ednes. The governor named Mr. T. B. Tnr ley, chairman, and Messrs. J. K. Godwin, H. L. tirinklev, K. B. Snowden and P. C. Bethel and these gentlemen (except Mr. Bethel, who is sick, nut may come on to-day), arrived in Baltimore yesterday and are quartered at Barnum's, together with D . D. T. Porter, president of the Taxing-District; Mr. John Overton, jr., member of the-citv government, and Mr. F. S. Davis, president of the First national bank, prominent citizens of Mem phis, and Judge John M. Lea, of Nashville, out largely interested in Memphis and the State generally. To-morrow they will formally meet the Baltimore creditors at Barnum's, and will submit to them a proposition for the settlement ol tne debt, from here they go to new lork lor a similar meeting.

A representative of the Amenean called at the hotel last night anil saw Mr. Turlev, the chairman of the committee, and Judge ljea, who is present in an advisory capacity Thev stated that the citizens of Memphis de sired strongly to effect some settlement with their creditors as will be honorable tothecuv and satisfactory to the bondholders. "What protiosition would be suhmitted thev were not prepared to state ; it would, however, be of the most liberal character (xissible, and would Is? lulhlled to the letter if accented The amount of bonds issued was stated to lie at least $3,375,300, the proceeds being used for paVing (largely with the Nicholson blocks), for railroad subscriptions, to fund noating indebtedness and tor general city purposes. Defaults upon the coupons were made more than a dozen years ago, and while some intermediate payments hnv. been made, there has been no regularity. In February, 1877, the Legislature passed an act authorizing the issue of new bonds in lieu of the old, the exchange to be made at the rate of two old for one new, or fifty per cent, on, interest to be at six per cent. upon the "compromise" bonds, and the coupons to be receivable for taxes. I'nder the administration of Mayor Flippen some $2,100,000 old bonds were surrendered and $1,034,000 compromise bonds issued in their place. Jiut in any set tlement made now, it is thought that justic to an compels all holders to come in upon the same basis, and it is probable that hold ers of new bonds will come in as though thev had not effected exchanges. In this case the outstanding debt will foot up something more than Sb.U0U.U00, accrued interest, floating debt, etc., all being calculated. Few, if any, of the tax-receivable coupons were handed in, for the simple reason that little opportu nity was offered for such a thing, as the city's charter was abolished earlv in 188. anv other one ners Ik ing .Messrs I always notice that a, trion generally goes as as hesets his head fiill: The audience broke but In mat of laughter A Woman whom we know savs vou may become very much attached to a young dog the finit lay you own nun, inn tne secona nay, wnen you get up and find that he has devoted the mgnt to gnawing a hole in the sofa pillow, and that feath ers can be found In any part of the room, you don't feel so sure that you love the animal.

The celebration of the victory of Sedan, w hich has taken place all over Germany, is, says the Springfield Republican, the direct result of the covert threats made in France by Oambetta and others.

A si, reirn-nuin vorre Hon to sharpest of sharp tricks to evade the pay-1 question of a few weeks. The outbreak of eastern Roumelia is only a ment of just debts. "Money 'was borrowed I bv the city," it has been said, "and was I spent in one way or another. vhen credit ors pressed for the payment of interest upon their loans the charter was surrendered, and Memphis was no longer a city, and could not lie sued." The gentlemen at Rarntiui's put the matter in another light. There was no intention whatever, they hold, to evade the final payment of their just debts, but after the terrible yellow-fever visitation oi 188 the city found itself in a fearful state. Its finances were demoralized, its trade threat ened with destruction, and its salvation de pended upon sanitary improvements that coniiielled such outlays of money for sewers, etc., as prevented the interest payments. Meanwhile, mandamus after mandamus was issuing against the corpora tion, anil to st; vc on inevitable destruction the charter re?al was availed of not to evade payment of just debts, but to postpone settlement until atlairs were in a better con dition. In proof of this, thev point to the joint resolution passed at this time authoriz ing the appointment of the committee of conference. The population of Memphis bv the last census was 34,000, and the assessed value of protwrtv $1V000,(sX), though pro! ably $2,000,000 of this cannot be relied upon for revenue, some of it being in arrears for taxes fT twenty years.

A receiver of the city's funds was ap pointed by the United States court and anoth er by the legislature, and which one is the one is still a matter for the courts to decide. Whatever the result of the litigation may be, say the Memphis gentlemen, the people of the city will pay their obligation to the full extent ol their ability. PEBSONAL. LONDON. Sentember 20.

Joseph Jones, president of the State board of health, denies that the disease is anything more than malarial fever, caused by exposure in the rice tii Ids. The fact that very few of the cases hail been thus exposed, that Jones had not seen any of the casts him self, and that there has been intercourse, una and unrestricted, until recently, be tween jlf llj'd ships in quarantine in the neighborhood1 where this fever prevails, led Dr. Bemiss, of the National board of health, to dispatch Dr. Sternlierg, an army surgeon of experience in fevers of the tiulf coast, to investigate anil rojiort. Dr. V miss i- now in rceipt of this officer's reisirt, pronouncing the disease unmistakably yellow-fever. The pres ident of the National Isiard of health has tendered the Louisiana State board the sum of $10,000 to lie used in preventing spread of the disease. Without consulting this boanlt President Joseph Jones declined the aid, claiming the State Isiard waa com petent to deal with ihe trouble. A number of leading citizens holding a diff erent opinion held a meeting Tuesday evening, and decided to send a commission of experts to the local ity. This commission, consisting of Ir. J. iiavison, member of the Louisiana State board of health; Pr. K. W. Mitchell, oi Mem phis, muniber of the National board of health; Dr. George M. Sternberger, surgeon of the army, and Dr. J. D. Bruns, of the Charity hospital, left for Point Michael yes terday" morning on a special steamer pro vided bv citizens. The commission returned this eveniug, but has not yet made public its report."

New York WorH, of Saturday: steamer Western Texas, of Mallorv's which arrived at this port yesterday, brought the captain and crew of the brig Caroline rxirtv, which was shipwrecked in the cyclone that destroyed the Vera Cruz, and was stranded on the Florida coast, not far from where some of the passengers of that luck less steamship went ashore. "The captain, whose name is (reorge W. Warren, and who comes from Maine, was disinclined to talk about "his adventures, and It was only by in sistent questioning that the following narra- t . c . s j e -. 1 " live couiii oe outaiueti irom mm: "Our brig was owned by A. P. Veaev & Co., of Bangor, Maine. She left Fernandina, Florida, August 27th, bound for Philadelphia with lumber. There were seven souls on board James T. Worgent, mate; (Jeorge W. Chipman, Stewart; (ieorgo P. Brown, Fred erick Hansen, John Scott and August Olsen, members ol the crew, and mvselt. On Satur day morning the weather was what you might call nasty. About noon we passed the Vera Cruz, carrying fore and aft sails and heading sonth by east. She looked in trim and ship shape and I remember remarking to the mate: 'If I had that steamer I wouldn't be afraid of going on the Florida coast to-night.' We lost sight of her about i p.m. We were on the port tack heading southeast. At midnight f gave orders to shorten sail. Ihe wind was not blowing so particularly heavy, but it was baffling from east to northeast and the sea was running verv high. We were then in latitude 29 55 with about twenty-five fathoms of water under us. It wasn't very far from this point that we were wrecked, for a big sea struck us at 3 a.m., and wo hadn't been mak ing more than three or four knots an hour since midnight. Well, yes, sir, it was a pretty good-sized sea, a bigger one than I care to see again. We had furled all sail except the mainstay sail with bonnet off, and all hands were on deck. She struck us right in the eve and never .-topped till she reached the '.1 1 r . 1. . 1 r ta i -1 ouiei euu ot tne ong. it was a sea ftae a mountain. It stove in the bulk head, swept off the top of the forward house, broke the main boom and main gaft', ripped off the skylight from the after house and passed over our stern taking both boats and tin- da vits, together with the wheel. I was steer ing at the time, but I dropped down anil fell to leeward. When 1 picked myself up out of the lee scuppers I supposed I was the only man aboard the Caroline Eddy, bnt I found all the rest of them had managed somehow to get out of the way how, 1 don't know any more than 1 know how I got out of the way myself. As soon as the sea cleared away we made for the pumps, but found that thev were all covered up with the wreck of" the main boom and part of the deck load. I set part of the crew to clearing the pumps, and having nailed some canvass over the skylight, took the steward and one of the crew down to, the cabin to bail water, for the cabin was flooded. Suddenly we no ticed that the brig was listing to starlioard, and at the same time we heard the mate sing out to us to come on deck, for she waa going over. We weren't very slow in getting to the gangway, but when we got there we found that the mate had nailed the boards over the gangway so tight and so close together that we couldn't get out. I tell you, it made us sweat, for we could feel the brig a-liating all the time. We had to burst the boards up, though, and we did. When we got on deck she was going over.' I jumped an J. let go the mainstay sail halliards, and by the time 1 got back to the main rigging she was nearly flat on her starboard side, her mast-heads being about fifteen feet from the water. Get ting a chance to look around me I found that all the crew were close by, hanging on ns best they could to the main-rigging. We knew the old brig wouldn't go down with her belly full of Florida timber, but we couldn't tell bow soon we'd be washed off. Presently she began to right her self, having swung round till she got the wind ami sea under her masts. As she straightened up the mate crawled up over the mast-head, cut away the main topmast, which was hanging, and came down on the starhoard rigging. When she was fairly righted she sunk nearly to the level of the upper deck. There w a- a good chance now of her going over on the port side, so wc all shifted and crawled over into the opposite rigging, a task which was not easy, consider ing that the sea waa making clear breaches over us. Just as we got into the rigging an enormous sea Bwept over her, clearing the decks of everything that had remained. V e stayed in that rigging from about 4 o'clock Sunday morning until 5 o'clock Monday afternoon. The brig, we knew, would keep right side up, aa she was sunk $0 low, but there was no telling how long the masts would stand iu her. Did we have anything to eat? Oh, yes, sirloin steak and ice cream, of course. No, we did not have anything to eat nor any chance to sleep either. Well, at 5 o'clock on Monday afternoon we made land under the lee about five miles distant. The mainboom was lying across the eha ni 1 suppose you could call it which showed where the house had been before it was washed away, with its tar cud resting on the tatfrail. lf.e mate shinned across this sort of natural bridge, and rove off the tackles and paused the falls to me, and I made them fast -iu the main rigging. Then we let go Ihe halliards of the main-stay sail, but the sailwound up around the main stay anil 1 was obliged to send a man up to clear it. He fell to the. deck and was nearly drowned. Then we abandoned all efforts to run the brig ashore and lashed our selves in the rigging for another night's rest. At midnight the brig struck bottom. She struck broadside on, but swung around liow on. It was too dark to see anything, hut we knew by the running of the seii that we were on an outer reef. We clung to the rigging while she pounded in over the reef and at daybreak wc saw that we were not more tlran a quarter of a mile distant from a beach, upon which we made out, through the spray .-mil mist a number of people. They had no'lioats at hand and the sea was running very high. The brig had happened to drive in .it high tide, and having pounded her keel out settled Si icily down as the tide began to ebb, so at we were presently able to leave the rig ging and get upon the main deck. Four of us could swim, but (Jeorge Worgent, the mate; Chipman, the steward, and August Olsen could not swim a stroke. At 10 o'clock Hen sen volunteered to make an effort to reach the shore and get help. We watched him go on the top of a big wave andsuwthat he had been caught in a swift current and was being swept northward along the line of the beach directly in the lash of the breakers. He was a strong swimmer, however, and succeeded in reaching the beach about a mile to the north of us. Encouraged by Hensen's suc cess, George Brown and John Scott also swam ashore. The title had meantime reached the end of the ebb and we saw that there was danger of the brig's going to pieces at high water. We therefore made a raft by lashing a bit of hard pine scantling across a piece of the main boom, and upon this the mate, steward and seaman, who could not swim, set themselves adrift. I never thought they wonld reach the shore alive, for the raft was under water more than half of the time. Hansen, Brown and Scott, however, swam part of the way out to meet them, and they finally reached the shore. I then thought it was time I was getting to laud myself, so I jumped over and swam for it. We found that we had landed at Matanzas inlet. We were met bv Mr. Darius Allen, who had a summer hotel near by, and who took care of us over night and the next day sent us as far aa St. Augustine. The cargo of the vessel was sold at St. Augustine for $425, and the wreck for $110." Captain Warren added that he was anxious to express his gratitude for the kindnesses he and his crew had received ever since they landed on the Florida coast, but was anxious at the same time to mention the fact that a Western I'nion telegraph operator at St. Augustine refused to send any messages for huu, even one notifying his family of his safety, unless they were prepaid. The op erator explained that his pay depended en tirely upon the cash receipts at his office, and that as he received no remuneration for send ing a "collect" message, he did not propose to do it, shipwreck or no ahipwreck. tic-ora BLOOD REMEDIES.

RUNNING SORES In terest Iuk Account or the Healing; of n Broken Leg. Messrs. Lotiirops & Pinkham. Druggists: Dear Sin. On the 23d of August, 1877, I had the mis fortune of having my leg broken, in front of William Stems' dry-goods store, by a case of goods being thrown on me. The bone was set by a phy sician of this place. Upon removing the splints, sores broke out from my knee to the heel, and sev eral physicians called it varicose veins, and ordered me to wear rub tier stockings. After wearing out about S25 worth of different makes without any signs of any cure, I bought the Ccticcba Reme dies for the purpose, as 1 expressed it at the time, to be humbugged again. Before half had been used, I was astonished to see the sores heal up one by one, and now not one sore is to lie seen. I recommended the same to a neighboring lady who had been troubled for yeors with a sore wrist After using hundredsof remedies she is completely cured. Respectfully yours, Doveb, N.
