It is a irrcut pity the Nashville peni
tentiary cuiinot be abolished. It h:u
so long been the source o( scandal,
the shame and disgrace of the State,
that the people, would willingly stand
an additional taxation to suppress it
and build two new penitentiaries in
the eastern and western parts of the
State. It is the only institution in
the State that the smell or taint of
jobbery clings to, and, coupled with
the enslavement of the prisoners, is a
stench in the nostrils of all classes of
both parties. The latest story is one
that is scarcely to bo relieved by thn
plea of "stale custom," and, no doubt,
will be tin subject of, rsnvu.il, a use
less leg'slative investigation in Jan
nary. The penitentiary is a political
as well as a public nuisance.
Tbk resolutions odop ed yestt-rday
by the New York Chamber of Com
merce in ref rence to the labor
troubles will meet with very general
' approval, as expressing the views of
the average American on that vexed
and much vexing subject. They
recognize the right of the workingmen
to strike and to combine in trades
unions to accomplish all legitimate
purposes, but they denounce violence
and interference with the rights of
other men to work for what they can
jet. This has the ring of tho Ameri
can spirit of independence, and ap
peals to workingmen that while they
are contending manfully for their own
r'ghts they shall not interfere with or
trespass upon tho rights of others.
The law must be upheld as supreme.
Whatever tho merchants or busi
ness men of Memphis can do to fur
ther the interests of the Memphis,
Kansas and Western railroad, should
be done without delay, and without
stint. The proposed road will run
through the most productive and
most thickly settled portion of North
western Arkansas, crosses the coal
lands of Southwestern Missouri, and
skirts the richest region of the most
promising of the agricultural States of
the I'nion, historic Kansas. This road
will scarcely be second in point of in
terest to tho Kansas City railroad, to
which Memphis owes so much of her
present prosperity, and would be the
means of increasing the grain and
meat trade of the city, beyond any
ijuostion the best distributing point in
the interior of tho United States
Liberal subscriptions should be made
for this railroad to Kansas, which will
give us direct communication with
iH-uver, and so on to the Pacific.
At bo time in the history of Mem
phis have railroad men beenso active
ly engaged in building new anu ex
tending old lines of road. The Kansas
City railroad is about commencing
work on fU extension from this city
to Birmingham, Ala.; the Memphis,
Birmingham and Atlantic railroad is
rapidly building in the same direction
from Holly Springs ; and' the Georgia
l'aciiic has, it is rumored, purchased
the Memphis and Tennessee railro id,
with a view to connect with it by the
continuation of their line from Artesia
to Grenada. Thus we shall shortly
have three lines of railroad from this
city to Birmingham. Then there is
the Fensaeola and Memphis ruilroad,
which is being surveyed for, and
the Illinois Central is rapidly com
pleting ita line to this city from Ya
zoo City. Besides these, the Iron
Mountain railroad is building to this
city from Bald Knob, with a puroose
to build west from that point to Kan
sas City, and thus gtvo us a second
line to that rapidly-growinz trade
center. Then there is the Memphis,
Kansas and Western railroad, which
promises to connect us direct ith
J)enver. Memphis is evidently to be
the greatest railroad center of the
History repeats itself. Tho illicit
distillers of Ireland were long famoos
as disturbers of the peace of the ever
green isle, and for their opposition to
the law, even to the extent of murder.
So, also, in Scotland the same class
forced the British Government for
more than a half century to maintain
corps of spies, .informers and police,
and often soldiers, to put a stop to the
illicit distillation of spirits and their
unlawful sale. Even in England, the
smuggler was for several generations
a personage of great importance, and
for a hundred years the literature of
the stage, as well as the sensational
novel, was rilled with the exploits of
the men who defied the coast-guard
and smuggled brandy from France
and wines from Spain. Here, to-day,
in the Southwes, the moonshin
er, the adventurous distiller of
illicit whisky is the hero of the hour,
living as he docs in open defiance of
the law, even to the extent of mur
der. It is impossible to read the
special dispatch from Xoshville, pub
lished in yesterday's Appl, without
. a feeling of indignation that men,
claiming to be respectable, should, for
the sake of the profits on a few gal
lons of whisky, resort to the murder,
the cowardly assassination of a faith
ful officer. So infamous a crime can
not be too severely condemned, and
the offenders not already punished by
the pistol of Purdon should be hunted
down and brought to speedy punish
ment. The laws of the country,
whether good or bad, must be
obeyed and muBt be euton-ed.
They are the honorable com
pacts ' that hold sot- ety together,
without which chaos would come again
and might nsnrp the place of right
The awful rrim perpetrated by the
distillers of Hubbard's cav must be
avenged by the law, and Bevenue
Collector llillsuian and the United
States Marshal for Middle Tennessee
must pnsn inqul yand prosecution
until that end is reached. The moon
shiners most be suppressed.

Hklesa, Ark., April 27. Thiseven
ing at 4 o'clock, while our citizens
were quietly sitting around their
places of business discussing the great
Hood of waters that now cover this
country, thinking they were secure
from all encroachments of tho rive-, a
low, rumbling sound was heard con
in? from tho north. ;No attention was
at fir t paid to it, as it was thought
that it was nothing but the steam es
caping from some steamboat plying
on the water. The whole town was
electrified, however, in a short time
after, by a man riding like mad down
tho streets and shouting at every
jump of his horse the dread news,
"The levee has broken ! Tho lovee has
broken '." Iu an incredible short time
a great stream of rushing humanity
were hurrying,soiue in the direction of
the break, others to the low lands of
the city to their homes to save their
families and perishable property. Tho
br n't was about three-fourths of a mile
above the town and right back
of the Helena Fair Grounds. At first
it was not over seventy-five feet in
width, Init keeps widening every
minute. fThe tug Eva, with a barge
load of djrt, was at the levee when it
broke, aiell befure tho tug could get
under headway the current took the
barge and shot it through the break
fully 200 VrJs, for the time bn high,
dry land. Quite a number of men
were in the barge at the time shovel
ing out the dirt, who, as soon as the
barge hit the land, jumped off of it
and made a run for the hi Is. The
tug managed to get back into tho
river. The banks of tho levee at the
break were soon covered with cit:zens
from the town who stood watching the
w all of water
with feelings of awe. In tin north
ern part of the town there is another
levee that mukes from the leveo at
the river straight to the hil s imme
diately wext of the city, which will
for the present act as a barrier and
temporarily keep the water out of tho
business portion of the city. . But
between this levee and the break
there are fully 200 dwelling-houses,
the majority of them being one-story
high, and before skiffs could be got to
them the rise was so rpid that they
had to climb on fp of their houses to
keep from drowning. Those that
live in two-story houses moved
their effects juHt as soon as
they could into tho sec
ond story, and say they
will remain there until tho water
goes down. It is reported late this
evening that a colored man and his
wife, who remained in their house too
late, with the hope of saving their
effects, were drowned. The magnifi
cent residences of Mrs. Wilkins, Mr.
ii O. Righterand Mrs. Williams are
among the number that are now in
the water." Jt was a sight truly dis
tressing to see the citizens of this por
tion of the town
at first with the water only a few
inches deep, then in a few seconds
knee, and then waist deep, and then
so dee that they would have to ei her
get to boats or houses, trying to save
their periHliaulo property. Many
fowls and some stock were drowned.
There river rose at this point, in the
last twenty-four hours, nine inches,
the greater portion of it having risen
to-day by 8 o'clock, when it came to
a stand for three or four hours, and
we hoped that the great Hood had
come to an end. We were, however,
doomed to disappointment, for
this evening, about 2 o'clock, it
commenced to rise again, and
has since risen another inch,
making the river eleven inches higher
thai ever before known. There is
still water sufficient in tho Sunk
Lands and St. Francis river (the latter
is still rising at the rate of about an
inch an hour at the Cut-Off I to raise
tho river fully ten inches higher than
it is, woich. ot course, means one ol
the greatest calamities that ever befell
the great cotton growing district of
tho Mississippi Valley, comprising in
Mississippi, Arkansas ana Louisiana
an incalculable amount of rich and
prolific country.
on tin Arkansas side of the river, oc
curred last night at the Craig planta
tion, some seven miles this side of, or
nearer to Helena than the Castile
break, which has let a volume of
water sufficient inside of the levee to
back the water up to within one mile
of Helena. The water in the L'An-
guille river, at the crossing of tho
Iron Mountain and Southern railway,
had risen this morning over the track
in the L'Anguille bottom, which ne
cessitated a transfer to day of the pas
sengers, mail and freight across tho
river by boat.
From Mr. Hugh Tomlinson of Mis
sissippi, who came over this evening,
we learned that if the river rose four
inches more the levee could not pos
sibly stand at the Thompson planta
tion, we win get the lour inches
here by to-morrow. The country in
which Magnolia, Jonestown, Clarks
dale and quite a number of other
thriving little villages are situated
will all be under water unless
tho track of the Louisville,
New Orleans and Texts railway
which runs parallel with the ri7er,
acts as a barrier and keeps it out,
which many hope will be the case.
The break in the levee at tho Stoval
Pla-e in Mississ ppi was fixed yester-
dav, and up to night the Mississippi
siifo from Greenville up presented an
unbroken iront. The Mobile anu
Northwestern railroad has had to dis
continue running their trains from
Lula to Glendale, opposite Helena.

At 7 :30 o'clock last evening a break
occurred in a fifteen-foot leveo three-
quarters of a mile south of Austin,
Miss., on the cat bank of the river,
and fortv-two miles south of Mem
phis. A force of won were eniploj ed
at the time strengthening the levee,
but when the break occurred they
ceased work. Th water that is pour-
inn through will find its way into
Beaver Dam, Yiuoo Pass, Hull's
Break and White Oak bayou. If the
worst is realized, it will overflow por-
t ons of Tunica, Coahoma, Quitman
and Sunflower counties, which will
cause a serious loss to farmers, as
they have in almost eveiy instance
planted their crops. The break -was
ten feet wide. Austin is the county
seat of Tunica county, and is tlnee
miles from tho nearest telegraph
An Appeal reports last niyht met
Mr. William Smithers, clerk of the
steamer lawn Adams, which arrived
from below about 10 o'clock. Mr.
Smithers stated that the Adams had
passed Austin about 2 o'clock. There
was no break at that timo, but it was
looked for at every moment. Mr.
Smithers fays the water is higher
than ho ever saw it before. Tho St
Francis is hackfd up aj far as Com
merce, and everything is under

begin work on his place, found his

London, April 27. The news from
Greece is conflicting. One dispatch
states that France did all in her
power to secure a favorable settlement
lor Greece by individual mediation,
but failed. It is a'so said that Franco
did not sign the ultimatum in which
the other powers loiiiud. ordering
Greece to disarm; that sho has not
yet signed it, and that if she eventu
ally does sign it, that fact will be com
municated to ureeco hi a separate
Greece, it is averred, is arranging to
seek from the power certain conces
sions in return for disarming. Other
despatches say that Greece disarmed
before rece ving the ultimatum, which
ordered the disarming to take place
within eight days, and that when
Premier Delvannis received the ulti
matum, he declared that it was then
objectless, as the orders for disarming
had already been given.
A Vienna despatch says that it is
understood that France intends to
propose a conference for the purpose
of making concessions to Greece
A tlegram from Athens states that
the combined lleet of the powers w 11
probably return to tho Pineus to day
to embark the foreign ministers.
Italy desired the ultimatum to order
Greece to disarm in fortv-eight hours,
but this was rejected by the other
powers es too peremptory.

Athknu, April 27. All the foreign
representatives except Cjunt de
Morey, the French minister, bad a
long conference this evening at the
German Lgst oa with the command

measures to be made in the event of
Greece not complying with the olti
ma'um of the po iters. Greece's reply
to the ultimatum is expected at the
end of this week.
Cibiott motines are being held
constantly. The Mioister of War will
not ajree to the disarming of tioops
and will tender his resignation if tbfct
course be decided upon. At a mars
meeting cf the war party to-day dis
armament was denounced. Farther
meetings will be held to night and to
