So far &a her railroad interevU are con cerned, MemphiB U Btanding still, whale the great and growing cities ahe antagonizes are circumventing her by iron girdles. Louis ville has grasped all the oountry between her and Montgomery, Alabama; Cincinnati M looking southward to Savannah, (reorgia ; and St Louis, by an energy that challenges our admiration, has built an iron highway by which she tiuds her way to the Gulf of Mexico at Ualvcsfon. Yesterday a circular reached us from Sedalia, Missouri, dated September 23J, informing at that in a few days the trains of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway will cross the great Ited river bridge, and enter the State of Texas. Charac terized by no little of the bombast that is inseparable from the commencement or completion of great undertakings in the west, this circular is none the less a very serious document for us. It reminds us that Texas is a State capable of containing and maintaining a population greater than that of the entire Union without brir.tr more thickly settled than Massachusetts, the most populous State in the Union; that it would hold the entire population of the French re public and then have a margin of sixty miles around it. It reminds us that to this vast territory immigration is pouring in a majestic stream that will find its course by the Missouri Pacific from St. Louis to Seda lia; from Sedalia to Denison, Texas, bv the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, and from Den- nison to Austin or Houston, Texas, bv the Houston and Texas Central, and from Hous ton to Oalvestoi. by the Galveston. Houston and Hendersou railroad ; and all by rail, ex cept a short gap between Denison and the northern terminus of the Houston and Texas Central, which it is positively announced will be completed in a few weeks, but which, meantime, is filled up by a line of stages that arc managed in a way to give entire satisfaction to the fast-moving railroad tieople. Everv man in Texas will- by this information, be inspirited to renewed exertions and a fresh pledge of love for the Lone Star State. They already realize, in the ! heavily burdened trains that run northward ! over the Missouri, Kansas and Texas road every day, that it is to be to their State what the great arteries are to the human body. It is opening up a qnick passage for the sturdy emigrants from Europe and the older States, which they will not be slow to avail thein- Nnflferlaga of Colored Sal lor.. London Globe: "ContestiniT. as shn dries with London, the claim to he considered the greatest among Knglish ports, LiverjHxil owes ii iu ner oitii reputation to anopt ettectual measures for the relief of the colored clement in her maritime populntion. At a recent meeting of these unfortunate mariners thev stated a case which certainly shows them to lie the victims of an evil system. .When Eng lish ships are in foreign ports it is of common occurrence for the crews to fall short of the proper strength through death, disease, or de- sertiou. In these cases colored seamen arc frequently hired 10 till vacancies on the home voyage. Pio sooner, however, is the ship in harbor than they receive their wages and are discliaried, to till other employments as best they can. Hence copies the real hardship- ., I F.J. , . I ' mere is nun- or no employment tor sailors of their class, Hhip-owners prefer Knglish seamen when they can get them, and as a full supply U generally availa ble at porta like Liverpool, the alien element is shunned. Nor can the discarded mariners find work on land their color goes against them there, even when they are capable which is not often of performing landsmen's labor. Tie. workhouse alio shuts Its doors in the faces of these poor darkies, if we may believe the statement made at the meeting. After having twice received parish relief, third application proaured the reply that they must seek nusk-nanee elsewhere. Thus, homeless, foodlcss, with only a very remote, chance of ever getting back to their own' countries, out off from all employment in England, they wander in a state'of semi starvation through the streets of wealthy Liverpool. One speaker described how he had found numbers of these men sleeping between bales of cotton under the dock sheds, with a stray spar for a pillow. At the present season of the year even an Afri can or au Asiatic constitution would not take harm lropi ouen-ulr slumbers, lhn ip a few months we shaH have tbo' rigors of winter uponu, and then the suffering' of these c otic waifs will lie very severe, unlet-due pro. vision Is' made for 'their food ami shelter.

From the Fdi-oUum WoeUt Grandfather Lickshingle and Deacon BUdnpinner, two patriarchs in this community, were walking down the street together yesterday. It was remarked that two uah venerable men were not often seen together, and people raised their htto ihem as they passed along and ske to them reverently. "There's entirely Uki" much bitterness in this campaign. ieacon."said Mr. Uckxliinglc. "and I regret it exceedingly. Now when we wua young men ami took an interest in poli tic, we had none of this 'ere everlastin'cat haulin'." "Indeed we hadn't," acquiesced Deacon l!dpii(jer "Take J ackson's campaign, for instance. Jherc n o, ;fely intetept taken by both parties, but there ti'tu Uiine of yer bullv-raggin' like we see nowaday,..'' 'That's a fact, deacon," said old Lick--biiiicle.

She will now become the great emigrant depot of the southwest, juBt aa Chicago is of the northwest, to profit not alone by purchases made by immi grants passing through, but by "a future and growing trade the result of impressions, such as all growing, thriving and large cities always make on those passing through and beyond, and who are destined to become the traders anil lm reliants in new villages, towns and cities. As indicating the extent of profits that are flowing into the lap of St. J mis from exertions of this sort, we are informed that, beginning with a cottage trade of only 4000 bales in lStiy, she was able to announce it 41,300 in 1871, and that this year it will reach 75,000, and perhaps 100,000 bales, but with the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway completed, there will not be any trouble in making up that difference, and increasing the 100,000 to 200,000. With such connections as it will be able to make, it will find no difficulty in the way of all-rail tariffs to New York that will lie much cheaper for cotton producers than any thing Texas now can furnish or will be able to in years to come. Much of this cotton, if not all of it, will go from a country that naturally belongs to us, and that might have been bound to us by hooks of steel. Now it lies at the stranger's gate, perhaps is lost to us forever. But this is not all. This road will intersect and connect with the Southern Pacific long before we can reach it, and we shall be again forestalled and for a trade that we have been "blowing" about ever since Memphis was a baby. So we go. But this is not all. An we said af the outset, Louisville is shaking hands with Mont gomery, the very thing we expected to do about this time, n'n the Selma road, fr which General Forrest, a few days since, in vain asked for a few dollars from our merchants, to help build and complete it. We may reach Selma and Montgomery in two years, but in that time Louisville, with a capital twenty times ours, an energy that of a giant refreshed, and industries we can- not cope with for years, sill have grasjied trade in all that everything in the way of country, and tied the people to her by the bond that always subsists lietwecn the buyer and seller in a city where quick sales and small profits is the rule; it will have grasjied with a grip, never, perhaps, to be relaxed, the coal and iron mines that are destined one ry ii i i t , -warnciu oe aangeu. lou Know mi 'gl't bee htv well, Lickshingle, he couldn't have lected hog-rive in a hill-town iu Jaclmon's n day. "He's a darn sight better man than Han-c-oek." "Go slow, Lickshingle, go slow!" said the deacon somewhat agitated. "h, I know what I'm talkin' about," re torted Lickshingle, as he stabbed the pave ment spitefully with his hickory cane. "Hancock is a stoughton bottle that's'what he is." "An' what's Garfield? Great guns, what's Garfield? Didn't bv lay Cheap John sort of a pavement around the Capitol and e-harge the government $LJOOO;000 for it?" and the dea-e-on's eyes blazed with indignation. "See here-, deacon! Look at your man Hancock's letter to Sherman. Iidn't he try to blow up Washington with glycerine? Say, didn't he? Oh, 1 read the papers, old mail, an' know what's goin' on." "Hancock's a good on' pure man. Didn't he fight like a bull-dog in the war of the re bellion? Where was Garfield skulkin' in the time of disaster? In C'anady, by thunder, in Canady !" "What wnr Hancock doin' With a stillet-ta in his boot the night Lincoln was murdered? Answer me that. If Wilkos Booth had failed this Hancock was ready to finish the job. Don't talk to me! Don't talk to me!" "It's a lie!" howled the deacon, as he whirled around and laced Lickshingle on the street. "It's as true as holy writ, an' any man's a liar that says so," retorted Lickshingle, too much wrought up to lie particular as to his phraseology. "You're a bald-headed old scoundrel," yelled the deacon. "You're an old leiier, an' I can wipe the ground with you," howled Lickshingle, grip ping his cane and advancing. friends jumped in and the two furious old men were dragged away in opiieasitc direc tions, The deacon snuirmed around in the arms of his captors, shook his cane nt Lick shingle and hissed: "Your man Garfield would never have gone into the army if he hadn't been drafted, and he wouldn't then, oulv he thought he would be able to desert the onery son of a gun!"

The line was under the inanai., imtit of William E. Stearns, now de- ceascii, son "I tile late l'rof.

The Neera was lying in Suez Koads, the canal not being yet open, awaiting passen gers, etc., before sailing on her return voy age' to Bombay. The Peninsular and Oriental company's steamship Carnatic was also alsiitt ready to sail fur tlie smc j...rt and only wailing mails and passengers, it happened (hut the passengers for the two steamers came across the isthmus together, and that two old friends and schoolmates piet, the one lo join the Ncefa ami the otlier the Carnatic. A day was spent by the friends, wl)o unexpected! wet oq the Egyptian desert, in jvecuuting day to make the town of Birmingham, Alabama, the rival of Birmingham, Eng land. And thus we are takon in front and in rear, and there is no present help for us. Thank God, the blame is not ours. With a persistency that has known no cessa tion, we have from day to day, within the past four years, directed the public attention to what was being done by St. Ixiuis and Louisville, and we anxiously urged some ac tion on the part of our neoule that would second the efforts of our railroad men. We j warned and pointed out the losses that would be ours did we fail; but all was of no avail. Now the. wolf is at our doors, and yet the j Selma road is to drag itsslow length along,and i the Shrcveport road is still a dream. What ; must wc do to be saved? rkoH Memphis to ji;h i itsov. TEXAS. We answer the question which heads the bore article from the Appeal, of October J 7, 1872, by saying that we must complete the ' r .it.-, ... t.l 11.1 . 1 ........... .v, . ,..., .via uaiua , we U1USI UlaKC direct connections with Kansas City; but, above all, we must build the roail so plainly marked on the above map from Memphis to Jefferson, Texas. Memphis to-day dates a new departure. She takes a fresh start in the race with the giant communities that above and below and all around her are stretching forth their hands for the great and growing trade of the west. The predictions made by the Appeal on the seventh of Octo ber, 1872, have been more than realized for St. Loola. She is now one of the great in- land cotton marts, her receipts figuring up over fx,00U balCB. This is the result of the j completion of the Iron Mountain railroad and its connections. This road is owned, managed and controlled by, and in the inter est of, St. Louis. It reaches into the very heart of Texas, and taps every center of com merce in that great empire. St. Louis con trols three roads: the Iron Mountain, the Memphis and Little Rock, and the St. Louis and Texas narrow-gauge, extending from Texarkana to Waco. New Orleans has one road finished to Texas, m Houston, and has another under way, which will be fin ished next year, terminating at Mar shall.

The Carnatic was the(first to be ready, and sailed from Suez in the morning; the Neera left early in the evening, some ten or twelve hours after the mail steamer. The night was line, and at breakfast time we had passed Shaduan islam), were out of the gulf of Suiz and into the Ked sea proer. Ilreakfast was Served on deck, under double awnings of heavy canvas. The voung gentleman who had left his friend the day before seemed somewhat depressed in spirits, and during lireakfast said rather anxiously: "Captain, a! what time did we stop last night?" "Stop! We have not stopped since leav ing," was the reply. 'Not even to take soundings?"

I dreained'that our ship stopiied until tlie other boats eni otT With the remainder of (I then Prooecde'd." people, and we The narration of the dream made a pro found impression upon the passengers, but the captain, as in doty bound, laughed it off. The young maiipjovcd a jolly sort of fellow, but was called "the dreamer"' during the rent of the voyage. " THE BREAM VERIFIED. On arriving at Aden, five daya later, before our anchor was down, we were hailed by a boat which kad been dispatched from "the peninsular and oriental office, and asked if we had any news from, the Carnatic, that ship being a day overdue. We had uo news give, but opr dreapier fj!iie(.)y remarket! to me: !ou may find that there is more to my dream than you sapposed." A few hours completed our coaling, and we were off again for Bombay, Ou arrival at that iwrt wc heard the news of tic loss M the Carnatic, anil the circumstances were just as narrated to us two weeks before, The ship struck on a rock near Shaduan island, some twelve hours after leaving Suez. The passengers and crew were lauded on the island. The steamer suWuuently slid off the rock and went down in deep water. During the night a steamer's lights were sevii bv the ship wrecked crew, and a boat was sent out to in tercept her. Our dreamer's friend Morton went in the first boa I. 'The remainder of the eople were subsequently taken on board, and tic resr-uirig steamer prtH-eitlj'tl )l ir Voj age lo ciiie. Tvxcep't that another steamer, not tlie Neera, rescued the party, the dreamer told the story as wi-11 as it could be told to day. If seems probable that our dreamer's viaum was shown him at the very momeuf the railroad the Appeal has persistently urged tijion the attention of the people of Memphis since 1868 the power of this ad , mirablv organized system can be neutralized, i As the Jefferson Democrat has so clearly shown, a direct road from Jefferson to Mem i phis is eighty-two miles nearer than the ex j isting route by way of Little Rock. It is of ! easy grade and with comparatively few ob- tractions; none of a Berk us character. By : controlling this road, we can make our own i terms with competing lines. When we reach ! Jefferson a connection can be formed with the International and Great Northern, the Texas ; and Pacific, and the otlier lines that traverse the State to say nothing of the East Line rail I road which terminates at Jefferson, and which is the nucleus of the future prosperity if that place. That road was built by Jeffer son enterprise and Jefferson capital, and ex- , tends to Greenville, 12o miles, through asfine a cotton belt as there is in the south. Jef ferson recceived last year 70,000 bales of cotton, and if the crop had turned out as large as wa anticipated a month ago, its receipts thiB year would have reached near, if not quite, 100,000 bales. A people that have exhibited such enterprise as they have are worthy of consideration, and this presents an additional reason for Mem phis to reach that point in preference to any other in Texas. Of all the roads that now nter in Memphis none of them are of i such imporUnco lo the uturc of the ci this. Indeed, we might go farther and say that to Louisville and Cincinnati it is the most important road in the trans-Mississippi country. This road built and connecting at Jefferson with the International road which, it will be seen from the map runs to San An tonio, and will eventually into Mexico and to the Gulf of California we should in time have a continuous highway into the mining country of northern Mexico, which experts declare to be the richest in the world. This would, too, make us independent of the Iron Mountain and Texas Pacific roads for an outlet to the Pa cific. Texas has constructed, and in course of construction this year, 3OO0 miles of railroad. shipwrecked people were embarking upon Ike steamer which came to their aid, and that the Neera was not ten mil's from the scene at the time. It may be stated, in conclusion, to show the perfection to which the postal system of the world has arrived that the only letter addressed to the writer which ever failed to reach him in all his twenty years wander ings went down in'the Carnatic. A "Moliil South." New York Daily Graphic: "There is anoth er than a political sense in which the south may be said to be solid. She is prosperous, and likely to become more so year by vear. The rapid increase of popnlatitin within her borders during the last decade has occasioned geuuiue surprise in the north, hut that is only one indication of the progressive march on which she has now fairly entered, and ' wherein she has by no means reached the ! end, or even the middle. What the most sa- I gaciotig of the iinti-slaverv leaders predicted as sure to follow the abolition of the pecu- i liar institution has come to pass. The south i is becoming populous; it is growing rich. Commerce is taking anew start; manufac tures are spring liD everywhere, and the P'"nler .V18 n.eldB ttcr tilled than ever lanter gees his fields better tilled nTnm Kmlrnaa. ' -. -j ...... arc beimr built in everv ,p i jii tis it Bieuiusinp lines are starred ; even the mineral wealth of the south is beginning to he developed. New Or leans, her principal seaport, is winning back ita aute-Mluia position manv times over, and will, in few years, be the rival of New York and Baltimore, not only in ita old sta ple of cotton, but also in the new ones of graiti and live stock. All this is a perfectly legitimate growth in prosperity too, and therefore more certain of lasting. There is no reason why the great southern staple should be sent north to be shipped for Eu rope. The natural thing to do is to put it en board a steamer at New Orleans, Mobile, or Savannah, or Charleston, and carry it across the Atlantic without any. break of bulk. This would lie a saving of labor and Ume, which means a saving of money. It has also been fonnd that it is cheaper to Ir-ansjiort corn and wheat down the Missis sippi from the great grain fields on its upper course than to the Atlantic seaboasd; while to bring the cattle of Texas to a point at the very doors of the graaing field must inevita bly have its advantages over the plan of l: .1 . 1 1 . . . . . -, . 1 senium.' meui iuuo mnes or more by train. Texas is rich in manv things, and her products, added "to those of Louisiana, Aakansas, and Mississippi, add their natural outlet toward Eu rope at New Orleans, and the system, of rail jiojjda whlph Is either builtj'or in process of building, connecting that city with these sec tions of country, will soon sminjy tJ,e one thing newiful transportation facilities, The repent improvements at the month of the big river have made it possible for the largest seagoing steamers (o anchor off the Crescent City's wharves, and It only remains to per fect the Internal system of 'communication to giwe n, impetus to commerce there such as any noutltcru city never before experienced. Last year the imports and exports jumped, from $71,000,000 to $104,000,000, and her bank clearances from 4,000,000 to $506, 000. The wheat receipts more than double, being over 14,000,000 bushels, as against 6,750,000 bushels in 1879. There was also an increase in the cotton receipts w,:, ,iiit iug t.i &ju,(XHl Weg, or oueitlfth of the We In this city might lie expected to feel some jealousy at finding such formidable rivals springing up t dispute the foreign trade of the country with Ms, and if wehjoked at the matter in an old -time, narrow and bLjoletl light, we undeniably would. For tunately, we are aware that the bouth, busy I and next year will probably construct 4000 more. Two lines of railroad are now rapid course of construction to the Pacifi which will be completed by January, 1882 Texas to-day is not what it was ten ago: ana lexas now, to which iron arms are reaching to grasp ita trade, presents but an outline of what it will be ten years hence When the roads now in progress are finished there will be a tide of immigration and capita to this favpred land only equaled by the early settlement of California. It is not merely to the present, but the future, to which Mem phis and the country above it, and east and west of it, must look forward to enjoy. There are only aliout 2o0 miles of road to build to secure us all the advantages of this immigra tion and the profits that accrue in the settle ment of a great empire. The jubilee of to day, rich in. promise as it is, would be utterly barren of effect did we fail to retrospect, did wo fail to look back along the road of years, reflect on what we have lost, and think what we may gain by putting forth some thing of the energy that characterized irom loon to isou. We ask our readers to study the map we print to-day. We ask them to uotc the lines that are marked so plainly upon it, to especially note the long black line that crosses it at right angles from Memphis to San Antonio. Midway of that line Jefferson stands a future center, the peo pie of which look to us, appeal to us, to build this road, which, to them as to us, is a neces sity. They prefer Memphis as a market tn any other, and the people who trade with them prefer Memphis. They urge, they en treat, that we help in the construction of i railroad every mile of which runs through tne very best cotton country in the world and is cultivated as closely as any. Amid the gaieties and festivities of this week we trust this work will not be lost sight of.
