THE MEMPHIS Z A.IIY APPEAL;- TUESD A Y, OCTOBER 7, 1 84.
OTDIPHIS APPEAL. lli;si)At : : i i : OCIOUEK 7. 188 CiSDIOtTESroRTIIKLieiSLAItRE The Democratic Convention to nomi nate candidates for the Legislature will meet in tins city on Thursday next, the Sth instant. Delegates were elected yes terday, and the result tells the same old atory, that the people are indifferent as to their material interests. There can be no objection to the men selected as delegates, but the small vote polled hows that the people are culpably dere lict in performing the duties which con stitute tbe very essence of good govern ment. If the people manifested no con cern in the election of delegates, it is loped they will spend tho next two days in impressing upon the delegates the im portance of selecting the best available candidates. The convention must ad dress itself to the simple question of what are the immediate and pressing 'wants of the people of Shelby county, and how can the Democratic party best propose to satisfy them. Every day the dush are growing more liberal onpoh'Ucal issues. The probable election of Cleveland the cordial manner in v;..t. !, ia unnnorted bv a host of hon- ; e?t Independent Republicans, will cause issues which have been herefore regarded as crucial testa of party fidelity to possess hereafter but little more than a speculative interest for the tax-payer. Questions which deal with economical administration, the care of abuses in local government, the desire to purpetu t a good system of government that has been tried and proved satisfactory, come home to men's understandings at a time when the popular conscience is daily aroused to fresh instances of official rascality, and when the pocket 'nerves of good citixens have becoaae ' unusually sensitive. A Democratic ma jority in November will chiefly depend ! upon the success of the party in secure in the floating vote. That is to say, the platform and the candidates of the party must bo such as to command the votes of good men. We hopo the very best men of the county will be selected for the Legislature. The need is strong won, who will stand firmly by the interests of the eounty and the present form of gov ernment for the city of Memphis, The been rual to the demands of the peo ple, and it will no doubt be equal to its opportunities ia nominating candidates ior the LeKislature on Thursday next. AVOB LaaiB'S BB SPEECH, A special telegram to the Appeal, published ia another columo, gives a full synopsis of SeaatorL- Q- C. Lamar's great speech delivered at Ifo.lly Spring?, Miss., yesterday. It is more likely to make a deep impression than anything which was ever before presented from this great statesman, senator .Lamar never appeals to the publio judgment except on questions of political oou science and duty as a citiien and patriot, and his acumen, force and moral intra pidity lay strong grasp or all minds in telligent enough to folio- his train of argument, to comprehend his lolly pa triotism and matchless statesmanship. The speech isiroad, able and conserva tive, and yet ablaze with enthusiasm and ringing in every sentence with the earnestness and honesty which charac terizes all of Lamar's utterances. We ire told by private dispatches from Holly Spring last night that the speech was regarded as one of the noblest efforts ered in that place. The immense as ; sembly listened to it with the most pro found attention, and never was attention more munifioently rewarded. It is re ported that from the first sentonce to the close tho Senator held sway over the minds and hearts of those present, weaving one of the most beautiful. solid, logical and respondent chains of r-MiHon and truth that ever bound a '"crowd to the spell of mighty and resist less eloquence. Lamar's tribute to the Independent Republicans will electrify the whole country. The speech will be generally read and attract the attention of the nation, ior no publio speaker now in political life in the United States so closely rivets the attention of the pub lio as the brilliant Senator irom Missis aippi. In the Senate of the United States he has repeated again and again the triumphs of parliamentary eloquence whioh used to illustrate the era of Clay, and Webster, and Calhoun, and this last great speech will attract as much atten tion as the utterances of this triumvi rate upon the hustings. There is noth ing of tho partisan in Lamar's speech, lie addresses (he higher, the kinder feel ings and impulses of msn, and by frank ness and generosity conciliates. This 1- III 1 . . nvnfnnni 1 (M . mou on tlvnhbmimtTV (iOSD BEUIMSUSG. The first week's work of the lion. James M. Harris, the Democratic nomi nee for Congrosa in tho Tenth Congres sional District, has been eminently satis factory, and presages his triumuhant election. He addressed the people every day last week and made a favorable im pression, and all accounts of the first discussion between him aai his competi tor concur in the opinion that his rjctory was complete and overwhelming. He has already shown humaelf a speaker of rare force, which, with the .commanding personality, quick sympathies, immova ble eoovictions and fine Judgment of human nature he has displayed makes him a worthy chavnrion of his party. Mr. Harris has expanded to the full limits of the occasion. He is making A brilliant canvass, surpassing the uost sanguine expectations of his friends, and if the party will en ter the canvass with the test and energy he has thrown is to it, there eaa bp no doubt as to his triumphant eleotion. Mr. Harris makes a damaging disclosure against the Republican party by allowing the amount of territory acquired by the Democrat! party and the large amount of tMs territory gUan to the monopolies by the Republican party, Jlr. Harris haa cpartd a map, showing tho im mense amount of territory acquired by Democrats for the m of aotual settlers and the poor niatses, but which has been squandered by the Uepubluaas on rail road monopolies. The statistics ot Mr If arris are most interesting and tbetitsp, 'hichhe has preirel at hia own ex- jenee, fully exposes at a glance the vast amount of land taken trom t8 poor masses by the Republican party aad riveu 61 rich monopolies, v e have cot heard Mr. Harris on this question in a publie aJdrcss before an 'au dience, but in a private conversation he showed us by data facts aad figures that th Republican party haa give away to railroad corporations and monopolies 3OO,tKX,0i) acres of the public domain. He further (hows that, with the exeep tion of the frot.il regions of Alaska, the Republicans have DMr acquired for the country a single acre of Urritorv; that, on the contrary, the Democrat hire ac quired for the people every acre, except the Alanka purchase, that we possess, as follows: By the treaty of Taris in 1803 Jefferson, a Democratic President, ac quired the Louisiana country, containing 1,173,057 square miles, which includes the following States and Territories: Arkan sas, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, Kan sas, Missouri, Louisiana, Oregon, Dakota, Wyoming, Washington and the Indian Territory. In 1S19 James Monroe, a Dem ocratic President, acquired Florida, con taining (A,yi2 square miles. The adminis- tration of John Tyler acquired Texas, em bracing 27-.,3jG square miles. In 1843, under the Democratic administration of Jurues K. Polk, we added California, Nevada, New Mexico and a part of .Ari zona, KKi.TGO square miles. Under Franklin Pierce we obtained in the Gadden purchase 45,535 square miles. In 18C8, under Andrew Johnson, we purchased Alaska, containing 577,390 square miles of territory. The recapitu lation may be briefly made as follows: By our original treaty with Great Brit ain we possessed 827,844 square miles. The Democrats added to this 2,198,680 square miles, making a total area of 3,G03,844 square miles, or 2,306,485,700 ' acres. The Republicans, under Andrew Johnson, acquired 577,390 square miles in Alaska. Of this grand domain acquired by the Democrat for the use of the people, upon which to make homes and rear their families, the Republicans gave j away 2!KJ.710,411 acres to railroad cor porations between 1862 and 1871. Among these grants are 35,000,000 acres to tho Union and Central Pacific, 47, 000,01)0 to the Northern Pacific, and 2,000,000 to the Atlantic and Pacific. The land given away to these four rail road companies exceeds the combined area embraced in the States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachu setts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. At a low valuation it is worth hundreds of millions. On this question Mr. Harris is thoroughly posted, and his exposure of the frauds by which the Re publicans have robbed the people of the pubbo domain acquired by Demoerats and given it to rich monopolies, cannot fail to have a powerful influence in the canvass. He gives a plain statement of the faots whioh address themselves to the comprehension of every man, whether intelligent or obtuse in the grasp of an idea. His statement of the situation tells its own story of honor and fidelity to the people on one side, and treachery and robbery of the people on the other. In view of Mr. Harris's showing, and no Republican will deny that his statement is honestly and truthfully made, which party is entitled to the confidence of the jieopleT - Ebnatob Lauas, in the speech delivered by him at Holly Springs, Miss., yesterday, calls attention to the necessity for a decrease in the present rate of Federal taxation. The logic and the facta he gives to sustain himself in defending the position of the Democratic party are reinforced by the reports from the Treasury Department, Which show that notwithstanding the gone-?? Repression ia business and the decrease import, the revenues for the last tnro months are only abpsjt $730,000 les than for the rame two months of last ytar. That ia to say, WO are to have this year over a hundred millions of aiTluf' the aaChtsctations, even in August, reaching the large total of over $12,000, 000. Says the New York Financial Chronicle, commenting on this: "Our people do not recognise the severity of this burden or the important bearing it haa on our present industrial prostration. If they did they would be more watchful of the Congressmen they elect and be sure that they were in favor of reducing taxation to the absolute wants of the government, whatever else they might profess or believe." It is a notable fact that the great wheat fields of the continent are to be found in the "Far West." The growth of this most valuable of the cereals follows the star of empire, and the consequence is the rail roads have larger and more profitable hauV. Ia 1870 Illinois was the banner State, with a production of 51,000,000 bufebbls. This year it ia sixth, with a pro duction of only 33.000,000. Indiana in 1879 was second in order of production, with a yield cf .47,000,000; this year it produces only 35,000,000. Ohio was thW, with a yield of 40,000,000; this year it turns out only 35,000,000. The three States produced 144,000,000 in 1879, and this year only 103,000,000. Here ia a de crease in production of 41,000,000 buahelf, which is made up by an increase in otht r localities. Kansas has increased its prc duction 31,000,000 bushels, Dakota 22,000, 000, Nebraska 17,000,000, California 10, 000,000, Missouri 8,000,000, Oregon 8,000, 000 and Minnesota 7,000,000. Fhom the statement of failures the past three quarters of the year, furnished by R, G. Dun & Co., we learn that the in creaso in liabilities ia almost wholly in t-e Middle and Western Statep. Those are the sections where nearly all the hank failures occurred, thirteen na tional banks, twety State banks, besides fifteen savings bank", or forty-eight banks in el', having closed their doors sine the 1st cf January, 1SS4, against nine of all kinds during the same months last year. "With au h a record as that, of course," says fie New York Chroniclt, "our people must be crippled, the indirect losses and Btraia being even greater than those nioie immediate. Oae can scarcely overesti mate the loee in working capital our mer chants have su ire red aime May by the withdrawal of banking facilities which a general weakening of credit has pro duced." Wheat receipts are booming. For the first three weeks ot September they were the largest since 1870, and the August re ceipts were larger than ever before known at the same time. And this notwith standing the fact that wheat is cheaper now than it baa been for a century in England. In the first half of the present year the average price - in the market there, as recorded weekly in the London GavUi, was only 1 17a 8J per quarter. We baye to go bv-fc to 1T0 to find as low a price, in the interval ot iuj years me quarter haa only twice been under 2. The cultivation of wbeit has almost ceaced in Ireland and Scotland, has greatly dintuiahed in the western part cf Eng land uid la steadily declining even in the eastern. T New York Financial Chronicle, vl Saturday, publishes a tabulated statement ot the week's business, which shows a uniform loss in all sections, which is fair ly in keeping with the spirit of the times, and undoubtedly rericcts, though it is hy no means a measure of, the loss in busi-ne-, activity. For the whole country the returns are 30.1 per cent, below those of the correspotiMg week last year, while for the previous week tliey srere 25.1 per cent, below. Taking the cities separately rwe have great variableness shown. Those cla.aiej as Western return the smallest loss, probably Leca.use of the improved crop movement. Pi x this bakes of San Francisco have agreed to dis ontinue the pernicious and dangerous custom of overdrafts. That is tight. Prudent banking means the care ful nse of money witiiia tjie controlling limitsof the bank, witnin call and without the risk implied in au overdraft. Collat erals or good indorsements should ac corupauy all loans, and overdrafts should not be periiUvV Whsx Lord Wolsejey return from his Soudan campaign lie is to be sent out to Africa to try and dean out the Boers, who have become troublesome again. The British tax-payer ought in the mean time io take out his pencil and count the cost. He may perhaps find out in this way that the game ot suppressing the Boers every year ia not worth the cmdle.

LAMAR. The Statesmtn of Mississippi Speaks t the People of the Whole Coun try, and Appeals to Them For a Vindication of the American Same by the Defeat of Blaine and the Election of Groter Cleveland to the High Offlea of President of the Coiled States A Complete Defense of Mississippi and the Sauth from the As persions of the Hoars of the : Republican Party. faeKCIAL TO THK APPKAL.l Holly Springh, October 6. One of the. greatest gatherings ever witnessed in Mar shall c aunty assembled here to-day, the occasion Being the raising of a mammoth Cleveland' and Hendricks and Morgan pole. Th speakers were Gov. Iiowry and Senator Lamar. Gov. Lowry first ad dressed the crowd from a platform which had been erected in front of the court house. At the conclusion of his speech the audience repaired to the courthouse, which was filled to overflowing, where Senator Lamar took the stand and deliv ered one of the ablest speeches of the canvass. Senator Lamar said. Senator Lamar's Speech. ' After some introductory remarks, the leading feature of which was an allusion to a scene around the deathbed of Sena tor Ben Hill and the dying utterances of Georgia's great statesman as to - what should be the policy of the South, Senator Lamar said that while he thanked the pecplo for the cordial reception given t'im, he must not forget that lie had been invited to Holly Springs, not for the ex change of compliments but to give to the people of Mississippi his views as to the part they should take in the pending election. That he shou'd enter upon that duty with a purpose to avoid as far as pos sible all rellectious uoon men and all un just imputations upon parties. He be lieved that among trie vast majority of the people of this country there exists' a pro found sentiment of discontent and dissatis faction with tho tuauner in which tho governmentof.the country hm b-ien for years administered. This disapproval and condemnation is not characteristic of any one or more sections of the country, but is general throughout the whole country It is not manifested in ei cited or noisy demonstrations gotten up to influence voters and ..'arouse enthusiasm (there never had been', a canvass so calm and unimpassioned)," .but in the convictions which sensible and solid men express as to their duty in this crista. Many thou sands of Republicans who have hereto fore supported that party and who are still devoted to its principles and deter mined to make no gacriflcn pf them, are fnrpmnT protest against the vices ofTaUona-1 admin. K llesa . In high places, the prostitution of public offices to private gain,the depression which presses npon the material interests of the country; and that with this protest was a feeling that some change, some relief, some new departure is essential. Hitherto this sentiment, though strongly mani fested in Congressional and Slate elections, has failed to change t he methods of the national administration, or expel from power the party which directs aud controls it. Mr. Lamar then spoke of the influ ences which up to this time had enabled the Republican party to maintain its power and continue its policy in spite of the opposition of a majority of the people, indaaid those influences lost much of their force in this canvass. One cause which has heretofore restrained thousands of honest Republicans is the sentiment of allegiance to party, attachment to the name of the "grand old party," pride in its past achievements, faith in its creed, reverence for ita leaders and a hope that it would 1 slough off its corrupt elements, bring to the front iU beat and purest lead ers, and itself effect the reforms demanded oy the people. These expectations have been frustrated. The history of each suc cessive administration is a history of dis appointed hopes and violated . pledges. I uu Credit Moodier in one administration, emberasling Cabinet officers under another, gigantic Star-route frauds under a third ; a President shot down, the shameless pur chase of a State publicly boasted of, open interference in popular elections by Fed eral officers, systematic assessments upon salaries dream from the public Treasury to influence and control elections, have convinced them that only by ejecting the Republican party from power can the peo ple realize a pure, economical administra tion oi the government. They feel that they . cannot longer support such a party, and have" declared their purpose to vote for Cleve land and Hendricks. Applause. This determination seems strengthened by the actions of the respective conventions of the two parties. That section of the Re publican patty which in the Chicago Con vention represented the demand for re form was a powerful. one in numbers and character and influence. It included ome of the purest and ablest and most eloquent leaders of the party. The nomi nation made by the convention waa re garded as an overw. elming defeat of that wing of the party, an ignoring of its de mands and an offensive defiance of its op position. The noaiination of Gov. Cleve- tand was forced on the Democratic Con vention over the heads of leaders beloved id honored in the party, simply because tvs name was associated with reform. He had fought with intrepidity and suc cess against corruption and official abuse in every station to which he had been called. His nomination, if ratified by oKction will inspire every young man ot ambition with confidence in the etliciency of virtue and ability to secure their appro priate rewards in . tho honors and offices of the republic. '.-His dofeat will teach the opposite, namely, that the record of fidelity to public trust and ot a reformer of public abuse?, is lio element of strength in a candidate for the suffrages aud confi dence of the American people. Another cause which has-operated in previous elections against, the co-operation of all friends of administrative reform, was the prejudice against the Democratic party, an unwillingness. to restore it to power and a distrust of, its ability to effect the needed reforms.'- This prejudice is fast wearing o!f. Tho Independent Republi cans now feel that thp work of reform cannot be accomplished as long aa the Re publican party is in power. To admit that it cannot be done through the Demo cratic party is Lo pive up the cause of reform, io fiow their dislike of the Democratic 'party to make them continue the Republican party in power ia to ratify the existing system and to surrender all hepe of good government. Independent Republicans realig.4 this, and when warned that by defeating the Republican party they endanger important interests they rnuly that the influences and tendencies ttrW debasing the character and tone of the public service, the corrupt nse of public patronage to perpetuate its power, the narrow aud violent partisanship which has usurped the place of a broad statesmanslip,' .the metheds which hs lowered the etandafd? cf official honesty inevitably lead to fcreii'er arjgors than any now in sight. The defeat 6'. the par ty responsible for these evils, aud under which they have grown up, they believe will give a'death-blow to the system, and if the result is the ascendancy of the Dem ocratic party u will come into power with a warning of like fate snoutd ;t pursue like methods. But the distrust of the Democratic party is rapidly wearing off with liberal and patriotic Republicans. The country is now accustomed to seeing Democratic majorities in Conpress without apprehension of unwise o hurtful legis lation.: It now sees, and expects lo see, the legislation of those Democratic msjor-itiee-free from venality and corruption. Powerful corporations and the agents of plundering 'apUalists exert no influence upon thu action of a Democratic Congress le Golyer f onjracts are not made with the chairman of its 'Committee on Appropria tions. Credit Mobtlier frauds are not placed in the hands of the chairman of its Committee on Ways and Means or of any other important committees or any of its SpeakcM. Vo scandal or charge of corrup tion or official :udeco;um s made against Mr. Carlisle, Mr.' Randall or Mr. iCorr. Trjie. a characterless ad venturer attempted to smircj; trie fair fame of Mr. Kerr, but the House by ur.jnimous vote of both sides put its brand 3?pon the calumny of ita author. The system of retienchment in expenditures and reduc tion of taxation ta winch the Democratic party is pledged, and which it haa sought to carry out, assumes an avoidable means ot cutting off one of the greatest sourcta of Federal patron see and adminis trative corruption. - The etfort to raise the cry o' a solid South is again made, but this cry has lost aim.h of its efficacy in check ing the aspirations of the people North for ' They know the unrea.ity of aiy danger from that cause ; they know that the North ia the dominant section of this country and will continue to control the national pol icy, whatever party may be in power, whenever a majority of the thoughtful people deem a change in the national ad ministration necessary, they can make it without any relative change in Southern sentiment or influence. Six Northern States alone have a larger electoral vote than all the South combined. Each of those States, save one, have given Demo- ratic majoritiea at different times within the last few years. Should theseStates for the time being chose to yield this govern ment through the instrumentality of the Democratic party they can do so and hold the solid South aa a minority as im potent in a Democratic caucus as it is now in the government. Thj just and intelli gent people of the North have no appre hension that the South, either solid or divided, can control the action of the gov ernment against tbe interests of the North. They have seen tbe South, through her Representatives and Senators, present in Con stress, sometimes aa part of the mi nority and then as part of the major ity in both houses, without deduct ing anything from the national honor or doing any harm to national prosperity. There is no such thing as a solid South as a factor in legislation. Upon every question of national policy affecting either our foreign or our internal inter ests, the Southern members show as great diversity of sentiment and independence of action as any other section, and perhaps more. Senator Lamar said that he could instance measure after measure of cur rency, of taxation, of appropriations on which the affinities of political affiliation and legislative co-operation are in no sense of the term sectional. The effort to maintain their power by kindling anew passions which ought to subside, and de stroying peace and reconciliation by light ing up the camp fires of conflicts that are ended, he has strong grounds for believing will not meet with success. Senator Lamar said that the South has as great stake in thia election aa any other section. The grounds npon which the Independent Republicans have bolted their party under its present organization, . though taken with no reference to the South, are aa vital to her interests aa they are important to the interests cf the whole Union. ' No portion of the Union has experienced so sorely the corrupt and oppressive uses of Federal patronage. We are having them now in thia very election in full operation. Senator Lamar then spoke at some length of the present system of ex- essive taxation now maintained by the Republican party, which annually accumu lates in the national treasury a large amount of surplus over and above the most extravagant expenditures of the gov ernment. Ue exposed with great power to the different pretexts upon which the Republican . party had refused the universal demand for the reduction of these burdens of taxation. He showed that the maintenance of manufactures did not require these large surpluses of- reve nue and the excessive and needless taxa tion which create them. In keeping np inis ouraensome war tax tie retutea the p. etense that the object of the Republican pitfty was to increase or sustain the wages of American labor. He spoke of its blight ing effe ta npon the interests of agricul ture. This part of hia speech was very e'aborate, and the audience listened to it with great interest and frequent marks of approval Mr. Lamar here referred to the elfort evidently made at the North to di vert attention from the issue of reform in the government by appealing to sectional prejudices, and read from a book recently pntoutiy Ranm indorsed by Republican Senators. He also read extracts from a bi eech purporting to be delivered by Sen ator Hoar, at Treraont Temcle. in which he was reported to have said : "There are three Staled, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina, to say nothing of others, in which, beyond all question, the elec toral vote recorded at the coming election w 11 have no relation whatever to the will of their people. Unless the brave and gal laut men who are acting with Mahonecan win justice from the fears of the Demo crab, we must add to these States Vir ginia. - These three States cast twenty-six electoral votes with Virginia, they cast forty. Now, giving Gov. Cleveland all tho btites that hia most enthusiastic sup porters can hope for, be will fall far short of an eiectiori ijnlcss the votes of tbese States, wrested from thuir Republican majorities by crime and fraud, bs counted in bU ivor. The young re former who vutua for (jov. Cleveland cannot help to elect him, He can only help to make possible tbe successful accomplishment ot the crime by which a minority shall usurp the government of the country. The process is very simple and familiar. It is known as the Missis sippi plan. My friends, I know whereof I speak. I was charged a few months ago with the duty of investigating the election methods in the State of Mississippi." Had he said ho believed whereof he spake be would have spoken more accurately for Mr. Hoar's belief. It ia true Mr. Hoar was chairman of the committee to investigate certain occurrences in that State. As to bis method of investigating I will speak directly. He made a report to the Senate, of which I believe he ia admitted to be the author. I wish to read you one ex tract from that report : "A company, con sisting of about 150 persons, was organized under the command of Erasmus Wheeler, who had the title of major. These men were mounted, ninety of thena armed with guns, the remainder with pistols buckled round them, army style, or hanging on the horna of their saddles. About two weeka fore the 'election the armed company above named began riding ' about the country, taking with them a cannon. They began operations at t' e lower end of Beat 3, but for twelve days ranged over the county. Their operations were very largely conducted at night They kept up a constant firing with their guns and cannon. The cannon waa burst, but was replaced by another. These disturbances, which are compared by several witnesses who had been soldiers to tbe firing in a hotly-contested battle, were committed in the dead of night in the localities where b colored people dwelt in large num brs. They killed, wounded, whipped and otherwise outraged a large number of persona." Now, fellow-citiaens, I ask you to note mis statement: "iney tinea, wounded, whipped and otherwise out raged a large number of persons." You will observe how explicit and un qualified that statement is. How many persona would you suppose iroiu reading that seutence were killed? flow many are tnsant bj tbe phrase, "a large number of persona?" When it was ascertained that seventy-five persons were slain in the Cincinnati riot the telegraph announced that "the number of persons killed was not so large as supposed." But what does a "large number" mean when applied to" Copiah 'i " Would not haif of seventy-five be implied in a ch a phrase? would not at least twenty? Fellow citi zens, tbe fact is that the testimony taken by that committed proves that bat on? person was killed, and he by unknown persons. That statement has been read y every Senator and member of Congress. The report has been circulated all over the North. Republican speakers are to day reverberating the statement that a large number of persons were killed in the county of Copiah during the two weeks before the election. Aud the good people of the North who believe it regard Missis sippi as a State filled with a population of bloodstained desperadoes. The investi gation of that coruuatteo was 'confined to the alleged disturbances in one county Copiah, Rut the committee did not go to Copiah St all, hot a meqiher qf the com mittee set bis foot within the boundary of the State, unless they did so when they were in transit along the gulf coat on their way to New Orleans. Had they done so the; would have seen the just and equitable operation of equal laws (without a trace of privilege) upou both races. They would have seen the blacks sitting on juries olieh '.Z numbers with the whites, and sharing in the administration of penal and civil law. They would have seen colleges, acatienviea cd schoo's for both races, supported "by th' seii i in posed taxes of the whites, to an extent that haa won the admiration of that noble and able educator, Dr. Mayo, of Massachusetts. They would have seen Christian 'hnrches all over the land, but they would have hea, J cc lectures upon the "mistakes of Moses." 'They would have seen in Jackson a Legislature in ses sion and white and black legislators har moniously co-operating in the enactment of laws looking to (he interests and prosperi ty of both race.. And these colored feria latere would have informed Mr. Hoar that with the exception of the disturbances in Copiah, and one or two other points, the election they had to come to look into was as fair, free and peaceable an election as ever was held in any State of the Union ; that no violence either in the canvass or at the poljg otvxrred to deter voters; noth ing indeed to 'hindur g full yote and not even a complaint that the 'vote as &at were not counted, and that it was also con ducted with a good temper on both sides, such as bnd never been seen in the State before. Xhc7 would have found a white population busy rn eaorgeti? work upon their own business, with" scarcely a man among them who was not earning a sup port for himself or providing for his house hold, bv the toil oi band or brain. They would have found the b'.arks a contented and cheerful population, securo in the wagm that reward labor and happy In their homes. In a word, they would have aeen and heard in the fields aud on the streets, in the factories and in the shops, the unsummsned and un&uborned testi mony of the daily life of tbe State, and would have been furnished with the meas ure and balance by which to appreciate , the exaggeration of partisans and to die- criminate between the accidental out bunts of local passions and the deliberate action of an entire community. And, per haps, they would been struck with the fact that all thia waa the work of their fellow-citizens of their own blood wrought npon a commonwealth which eight years ago waa the seat of a political and social pandemonium, a pandemonium created by a hideoua rule that some men, under false cry of outrage on the ballot-box, are seeking to revive and fasten again upon the State. But none of these things did Mr. Hoar and his committee see, and hence they do not appeflr in the report nor in his late speech. M. Lamar then discussed the measure reported . by the Republican Judiciary Committee to the last Senate. He cited some oi ita pro visions to show that it waa designed to practically divest the State courts'of every vestige of jurisdiction over cases arising nnder the laws of the State, in "which a negro ia involved, either aa a party or a witness or a juror. Another bill waa in troduced to make the elections in the States still more subject to the supervision and influence and. persecution of Federal officers, and declared it to be more vio lative of the constitution than the bill al ready declared by the Supreme Court to be unconstitutional.

To the Editors of the Appeal : Riplbt, Tenn., October 6. In your issue of the 4th instant waa an extract from a letter to the Tennessee Republican Execu tive Committee, from A. B. Hearring, aec retary of Lauderdale County Republican Executive Committee, in which, with that exu'rance of fancy characteristic of Re publican secretaries, he asserts that Lau derdale county will give a Republican majority in the coming election; that the Democrats of the' Ninth Congressional District have nominated a very weak man ; that the "old-time Whigs" will vote for Emerson Etheridge, and that he will be elected, etc. Mr. Hearring draws on hia imagination for his facta. Lauderdale county vnll not give a Republican majority this fall The Democracy of the Ninth Congressional District did not nominate a weak man, but an excellent man, who vnll represent us in the next Congress with credit to himself and benefit to hia con stituents. Col. Glass will carry Lauder dale county thia fall, . just aa he did two years ago when thia same Repub lican secretary ran against him for the Legislature. No Democrats will vote against Col. Glas, except those who will desert the Democratic party in any event. It may not be amiss to say that Mr. A. B. Hearring tloughed off from the Demo cratic party some years ago, and in that race some people nnd an explanation of the excess of his Republican seal. Be assured, Mr. Hearricg'a flights of imagination to the contrary notwithstand ing, that the Democra y of Lauderiale county, made up largely of ' old-time Whigs," will, in the coming election, carry up their corner pumband level. m OLU-TIMH WHIG.
