In reply, I have to advise yuu that, while I do not rememeber the precise language, I presume the reporter correctly stated in a i-ondetised way his Idea of what I said. 1 no doubt spoke of you as the leading representative of the Democratic party In the south, and referred to the kuklux klan as representative of the barbarous agencies by which ihe Democ nts have subverted the civil and rlltical rights of the Republicans of the south, did not connect you personally with the ktfklux Uan. Indeed. 1 knew that you had in one or two impor ant instances resisted and defeated its worst itnputtc. i appreciate the sense of honor which makes you shrink from being named in connection with Ir Still, you and your associates and leading men in the south now enjoy tbe benefits of the po litical power derived from the atrocities of the ku klux klan. in which phrase I include all the nu merous oltosff by which it has from time to time been mown in the south. Your power in the southern States rests upon the actual crimss of every grade in the code of crimes, from murder to the meanest form ol ballot-box stuffing, committed by the kuklux klan and Its kindred associate, and, as you know, some of the worst of them have been committed since 1877, when you gave the most solemn assurance of protection to the frecdmen ofthe earth, and these crimes are all aimed at thefvil and political rights of Republicans In the south ; ami, as I believe, but for these agencies the very tate that you represent, as well as many other states in the south, would be represented both in the senate and house by Republican- But for those crimes the lsstst attributed to youth.it 138 solid southern votes would be east for the Demo cratic ticket would be but idle vaporing, but now we feel that it is a sober truth. While I have no reason to believe that yon or your northern asso ciates personally participated in the offences I have named, yet, while you, and they enjoy the fruits of these crimes, you may, in logic and morals, be classed as 1 classed you. as joint c-partners witn the kuklux-klan in a policy which thus far has been successful In seizing political jsywer In the sonth, and which it is hoped, by the aid of a small segment of the Democratic party in the north, may be extended to all dciM&rtinents of the government. It is in this sense that 1 spoke of you, the kuklux klan and tbe northern Democratic party. Penult me, In con clusion, while frankly answering your qucstiou, to say that the most fatal policy for the south would be by such agencies as 1 have mentioned to secure again political ascendancy In this country, for I assure you that the inaubood and independence of the north will certainly continue the struggle until cverv Kcpuiincau in me soum snuit n.ivc the free and unrestricted enjoyment of equal civil and uoliticaj nrivlleges.

The first dispatches from Charleston will be found on our fourth page. Kos. Ar PKU.: Charleston, October 18. The cotton fire which broke out on North Commercial wharf on Sunday afternoon is still burning, but is under control. Early this morning lire was discovered in the two forward compartments of the steamship Bedford, which had previ ously been hauled out into the stream. Five streams of water were poured into these two compartments by the tugs Wade Hampton and Republic, and after several hours' work the fire was extinguished. The fire in the steamship Barrowdale is still raging in the hold, although she has been scuttled and has had three streams of water pouring into her hold all day. Her machinery is consid ered totally destroyed. The iron plates of the hull have been seriously warped and tin? vessel is very badly damaged, and her cargo of 3200 bales of cotton is at this time in im minent danger of being totally destroyed. The Travancore is not much injured and is being pumped out. Surveys were held to day on all damaged steamers, and It was de termined to discharge all the cargoes at once. I'ntil this is done it will be impossible to form any correct estimate of the damage, either to steamers or cargoes. At this time the estimates op Losses are placed at the following figures: Commer cial wharf, real estate, $50,000; cotton on wharf and in sheds, $120,000; Vanderhorst's wharf, real estate, $2000; cotton on Vander horst's wharf, $3000; office furniture and per sonal property, $10,000; damage to steam ship Barrowdale, $50,000; damage to cargo $144,000; damage to steamship Travancore, $2000; damage to cargo, $105,000; damage to steamship Bedford, $10,000; damage to cargo. -!"),ixj; total, Sosti.uw, lully covered by i su ranee. LETTERS FROX THE PEOPLE. "The Greatest Good to the Greatest sTfsatsiii ElrtTORS ArPEAI Although the smallest farmer, considered with reference to the num ber of cotton bales made, that exhibited at the fair lxst week, I feel as much interest in the great pursuit as though my farm covered manv hroad acres and uiv cotton hales num bered many hundreds. Not only have I been identified practically with this great southern interest for thirty-five years, but my lone connection with the agricultural bureau of Mississippi s its secretary, before the war, authorizes me to speak modestly, at least, on the subject of fairs. If the greatest good to the greatest number le sound political doc trine, it applies with equal and more direct force to the industrial interests of tbe south, especially to those engaged in agriculture. Before the war we had many large farms and few small ones. Now, that rule is reversed, and we have a great number of small and few large ones. The premiums offered at your late fair, as at all other places in our southern country, are addressed or directed to farmers, without discrimination to ability or class. This, to my mind, seems like chal lenging to a foot-race toddling infancy and ripe manhood, decrepit age and swift-footed youth. While it is fair upon its face, the ad vantages point all one way, and the chances of success increase or diminish according to cir cumstances which but few can control. When premiums are directed to classes of fanners, then equality of competition will be intro duced that will make our fairs something more than a pastime holiday for the exhibi tion of specialties; and the success of indi viduals, who do not probably represent the bone, the muscle and the braiu engaged in the production ol this great southern staple. When the rewards of industry and enterprise are directed so as to engage the man who cultivates five or ten acres of cotton, or make-: that many bales or more, if you please, to fifteen or twenty, and from that number to thirty or forty, and from that to a hundred, I think the influence of fairs will besrin to operate for eood by creating an active and healthy emulation atnoug all classes of our farmers; and instead of having forty or fifty bales on exhibit, we may sec several hundred competing lor the respective prizes. As the premiums are now offered, the class of small producers, who really make the bulk of our cotton crop, nevercom pete because they regard the whole thing as a forgone conclusion -against them. The present plan did very well before the war, for reasons that will readily be suggested to the mind of the intelligent reader, but I think it is out of place now; nor is it in keeping with the system of our eastern and western brothers in the in the same competitive business. They pre sent inducements to cultivators, from one acre up to any number, so that all classes shall be represented. As the growingof cot ton has much to do with its pecuniary value, much might be done by offering premiums for the best bale made by horse power ami the best by steam power. ' The principles to which I hare called attention, not only ap piy to the production of cotton, but stock, as the man who is able to keep tenor a doseu fine cattle, horses, Hheep or pigs, would not feel like competing with another, who had fifty or a hundred head, but would enter the list readily against a man of his own caliber. Although" I brought a bale from Grenada, Mississippi, at much expense, and did not get a premium, I am in no censtirious humor, for I am satisfied that everything, according to the programme laid down, has been scrupulously carried out. But I wish to see fairs in that State, in Mississippi and all other southern States, doing some general good, and enlisting all classes of our farmers, from the smallest to the greatest, and in this class I mean all men who lire by cultivating the soil, the florist, the horticulturist, the omologist, etc. Hoping that these hints may be conducive to a broader spirit among the buyers, and a wider, practical applica tion amongst the producers of cotton.

The Military Companies of Nashville Give Those from Illinois and Wisconsin a Genuine Southern Welcome Drill the Rorter Rifles "The Sweet BysiwUy." by Special to the Appeal.l of II 1 1 1 a October 18. The event of yes terday, in Nashville, was the arrival 'of the Ilockford (Illinois) Kifles, Janesville (Wis consin) (inards, and the Governor's Guards, of Springfield, Illinois, en route to Atlanta. In anticipation of their arrival at 2:30 thou sands of people collected on the public square, on the river bank facing the railroad bridge, and crowded the Louisville depot. It was subsequently found, however, that the train had Eieen detained by four freight cars having run off the track, by a misplaced switch, on the rjoutheastem division. They, therefore, did not arrive until 8:30 p.m. As the train came in sight the Burns (Tennessee) Light Artillery commencxd to fire a salute, which was kept up until the train rolled into the depot, where thousands of citizens had collected to receive them. They were met by the Porter Rifles, Kock C ity tiuards, Burns' Tennessee Light Artillery, and a detachment of the Nashville Light Dragoons, and escorted to the Nicholson house, where a superb sup per had been prepared for them.

The drill over, the Porter Kifles escorted the vis iting companies to the Chattanooga depot, where the former gave the latter three cheers, which were warmly returned.

The fol lowing dispatch, dated Los Pinos agency, (ictober lOtlt, was this afternoon received at the interior department, and immediately made the subject of a consultation with the department (d justice, but an. derision" was reached in regard to it.

To the Secretary of the Interior: I have this day called on the commanding officer of the post in this vicinity to eject from the reserva tion one Smith and others, who claim to have au thority to arrest uie, and which I do not recognize. Furthermore I cfJhsider that the peace and welfare of the Indians and of the count: v in general on the reservation and iu the state demand this course. BERRY. Agent. Sehura Anxisos. Secretary Schurz, before leaving Wash ton to-day, telegraphed as follows: Totiovernor l'itkiit. Denver, Colorado: The Associated Press reports that two companies of militia have been started for the reservation to arrest Berrv. and that a conflict between them and the Indians is anticipated. It seems almost inev itable that if this proceeding goes on a conflict will come. Such a force is not necessary to secure obedience to the State process on tbe part of the government officers, and the government of the I'nited States will be entirely ready to aid in en forcing such process without an aggressive move ment of State troop , calculated to bring on a dis astrous conflict witu the Indians. Any prisoner arrested under process is entitled to absolute proecrlon against mob violence, and tbe State authorities should accompany arrests by adequate guarantees of personal safety to their prisoners. This being evident, there win be no reason why the accused shonld not willlnglv obey any lawful process; and if they dil not, certainly the government of the I'nited States would not countenance any such disobedience. I most certainly press upon you to arrest any movement- or conduct on the part of the State militia which .an pos-ibly lead to so dis astrous a consequence as an Indian War would be. C. 8'HCRZ. Secretary. What Meat-hum Says. The following private letter from Indian Commissioner Meacham has been received: Los Pisos, Cal., Octobcr'i, 1SS0. Dr. Tahland, Washington, D. C. : We have passed through forty-eight hours of the most exciting peril I have ever experienced. For an hour we expected every moment that the carni val would begin. The Ties with loaded guns and -tripped for fight, demanded the murderer of yoana Johnson, who was in charge of the citizens. Finally, Peah said to me : "White man all talk, too much talk. No more talk ; Vtc he fight ; he die all right; Johnson die sir right; white man die all right; all L'tes right all white mans; no more talk." It was a moment of great peril. I cannot make you understand the condition of things In the few moments left me to wrfto. Tn brief, an ox-I'-am-ter. upon little or no provocation, shot and killed young Johnson, a son of Chief Sharauau.T, thirty miles from the agency. This occurred at dark on Thursday eveiiihg. Friday morning at sunrise, or a little later, there were perhaps tifty arnied L'tes befors the agent's door, demanding the bloisl of the murderer every man with un covered arms and the wile and mother of the dead isiy tilling the air with the wildest grief I ever heard. Berry and 1 assured them the man should lie caught. We then put out for the scene of the murder, followed i. the mad human tigers: to satisfy the Utes we culled for an escort of soldiers; fifteen men and one officer joined us ;we reached! "union at dark.aud found tne murderer in cnarge oi tne citizens; we had htm guarded all night by soldiers, the ludian formtng an outer guard ; the scene was one beyond description until almost 1 a.m., when all became quiet, with the entire army squad on guard ; there were two elements fermenting, while the citizens who realized the situation and desired to wreak vengeance and justice upon the murder, and the Indians who sat like hyenas, watching every move ment. At sunrise the the whole thing seemed on the point of explosion ; Berry worked as man never worked before to keep the Indians bark; at 9 a.m. the l'tes prepared for a general slaughter, saying: "No use.JWhile man no die; all l'tes die. White man no care. ' Citizens understood the peril. Berry consented to return the prisoner to their charge and they started with him to ciunnison. The Utes appeared to agree that the prisoner ought to be taken to l.unnison. The army escort then left for the camp. Berry and I remained until every thing seemed settled and every rte had started home. Last night three white racn good, solar men came into the agency and reported Oiat white men and Utes had surprised them and taken the prisoner. They were terribly excited. The fate of the murderer Is only conjectured at this time. The l'tes arc coming as I close this. Thev seem quiet. I think tho peril Is over, unless some attempt should be mtde to discover the rescuers of yesterday. If that is done I cannot see the end. The only thing that will save the treaty, save Mood and secure peace, is to let this matter rest where It is and make payment without delay. A. Is MKACAAM. The following is an extract from the letter of Commissioner Meacham, dated October oth: A roiujirumise with the l'tes was affected by nl -nasi superhuman efforts. I believe it was made in good faitli by the citizens. Agent Berry and the Indians. A few ox team-tors arc endeav oring now to organize a mob to lynch the citizeiin from whom the murderer was taken. Baying it wax a "put up job." This, I am turu, is a mistake. Three citizens, all firatelftf men and Identified with the country, say that the conflict was inevit able whenever a motion should be made to take the prisoner to the military camp. The l'tes outnumbered the whites two to one Henry, fling, Hoyt. Holmes and I had been labor ing nearly all night to obtain the consent oi the l'tes to the plan of sending the prisoner to the military camp. They refused, but did consent that he should be taken to iiunni son, provided fling, Hoyt and Holmes would take him and secure lus conviction and execution. Thev still continued to say, "he no die Utes all tight all white mans." Three men who understood thehazanlousnission were accepted by all even the murderer himself. The Utes, the soldiers, Berry and myself and all the whites understood the matter as stated, and left nine's congruulating cHch other that the pinnacle o f danger had Ijeen passed. AT GERMANT0WN, Yesterday, Cascy'onnc Addressed the People upon tne Issues oi tbe Day and was Followed by Several Candidates lor the Legislature Tbe District Strong; lor Hie Ticket. Special to the Appeal.! Germantown, October 18. Hon. Casey Young, the Democratic candidate for con gress, addressed an atiprcciatiye audience at this town this alternuon. Air. lonng pre sented the cause of Democracy in its true and essential character, thereby winning to the fold both white and colored voters. He referred to the statements of William K. Moore and denounced his utterances as malicious, deliberate and libellous.' Col. Young made an effective and patriotic speech, the sentiment of which should be ap plauded by the people, irresp c ive of their political opinions. In higcrpuscot Mr. Mooie, and vindication of the southern character, he denounced Mo r s .-tatenients as untrue. and established the truth ot his denunciation by indisputable facts. After the conclusion of Col. Young's address Col. M. D. L. Stewart, C. E. Smith, Esq., Thomas Uoyle, jr., and Major Robert Williamson made effectual speeches. The precinct at Gerinantown will give a very large Demo cratic vote. So far as I have been able to ascertain, the intelligent voters are unani mous for Young and the regular Democratic ticket. The raw-head-and-bloody-bones speech of Mr. Moore has done its work it has aroused a determined opposition to this self-inspired caluminiator of the southern people, while Colonel Young, Colonel Stew art, Mr. Boyle, Colonel Williamson and Mr. Smith, in their speeches to-day, showed the falsity of the charges against the reliability and integrity of the merchants of Ithe south who are IVmocrats as thieves, murderers and kuklux by William R. Moore. Each speaker evidenced beyond doubt the cause of this political crusade. Colonel Williamson, ei pecially, showed that this was the result of an outspoken lie, inspired by malicious am bition for political preference, and developed because of the split among the Democrats re garding the gubernatorial election. The en tire Democratic ticket -national, State and county will bring out the full vote of Uie district DIED WINX On Monday evening, October 18, 1880, Mrs. K.J. 11. L.
