to elect a man to office, who en
forces the law only in such
cases as he thinks it ought to

the people will elect no man to office
who is not pledged t) execute all laws

Officials are sworn to do certain things
and they can no mote excuse and

the female can excuse her fall on ac

There will be an increase io crime so

utterances assure law breakera that
they can violate the law with impun

o:ly the rich are protected by the en

wh'ch concerns all alikt. Ia a com

Col. It. F. Loonfy Is making a vig

d.te whose integrity of purpose can
not be quoalljiiod, whoso private life
has been signulixid by tho highir-t
morality and exemplary conduct. Ttie
canvats has certainly opened under
the mcst favorable auspices for Col,
Lootiuy and aho under the ojwuruice
of perfect uni'y for the nominee. All

will reach forty thousand.

made a net gain of two, yet tbe

10,000 peisons were present. In the
course of his remark! Mr. Parnall
stld Lord SiPsbury and Lord ltan
dolph Chuichill etaked their last
ctiAEoo in Novombar las,t. It is now
Raid that tbo Iriili question is not ripe
for settlement. Never wai there a
mere diagrareful inatancs of political
turpitude and trea ht ry. Mr. Glad
stone had been called a traitor, but
Lord Salisbury was surely a greater
trait ir when bo was prepared to do
what Mr. Gladatoue has doo, not bo
cause he (Sallsbii'y) was anxious to
send a mesrage of peace to Ireland
but for the ignoble purpose of catch
ing the Irish vote." Continuing, Mr.
Paruell laid that Mr. Bright's scheme
was grand and masterly. Mr. But ',
bad made a simi'ar proposition, and
when Mr. Parnoll akid him why be
made it, Mr. Butt replied thnt ho did
so with a view of bringing about a
final settlement, becaue every bill
passed by tbe grand committee and
killed iu the Home of Commons or
tbe bonse cf Lords, would be a stand
ing argument ia favor of home rule.
A further indication that Scntlacd is
sttongly GladstoDtan is furnixhed in

Mr. Lsc'ti, Giadstonlans, received,
respectively, 8230 and 8210 votes,

To the Editors of the Appeal:

otic titiz'jts f Memphis regularly

manner creditable t j themaelvea and
turtown. Ob, thesa weie the good
old timec, wh9n people weie hcnet
and virtuoui. " I
l-ifty yeirs azo Memnbii was but a
small burg, and located pretty much
an norm oi Aiartet street. mis?ib
aippi Row (now dubbBd Front Row
for ihort), from Overton to Market
atreet, east side, contained all tie
business housae, whether ciry goods,
Krocerie?, hardware, drugs, etc. Win
chester street from Front to Market
Hquare, was the leading cross street,
bud the Enquirer cflice, City Hotel,
principal saloon, and other public
places. North Mha ts'ppi still had
many Indian tribep, whose trade was
considtrable. Our old friend J. J.
Rawlinga has frequently told all about
tbis in the Appeal,.
My oldest brother, by inheritance
had a natural tact for mechanical
work in iron, whether in forging or
on the turning lathe, although at mat
time but a large bjy. Such a thing
as a cannon of any size was unknown
in the town, hence he went to work
and made one fiom a piece tf an. old
cist iron shaft, turned it of! to proper
siza and shape and reamed out the
bore, about 1 inch, aad Borne 12
inches deep, not- f orgetiing the touch
hole. He also made a little gun car
riage and moun'ed the gun on it.
There weie four brothers tf U3, and
we were the cannoneers. All thia, I
think, it was in the spring of 1837. la
tnose days Maj -Geo. . P. Uainee,
United States Army, was a prominent
milita y pcraoaage and occasionally
visited Memphis, near which be held
some property interests. He first
projected tbe routcB ovrr which the
Memphis and Charleston railroad and
main ceancc.'ione, also the Memphis
and Little Rock lailroad, cow tun.
Gen. Gaines was always a welcome
visitor to Memphis. He canoe here in
Jane, 1837, as I find in my little diary
this entry on June 0, 1837, "Saluted
Gen. Gaines with the caunon, fifty
guns." Our merchants furnished the
powder, and we boys and the little
cannon made it belch from its nczzle.
To say that we felt our importance
would be only admitting tbe fact.
Next entry in the diary reads:
"July 4th (1837) we tirei the cannon
at the natbecue at L. Simpson's spring.
BejaTj firing betweon 4 aud 6 o'clock
In the morning. Robert Lawrence
read tbe Declaration of Ind' psndencs,
drawn July 4, 177(5; John D. Graham
read the oration; C. I). McLean read
about 100 toasts, volunteer and regu
lar: cannon fired about 150 timts."
No dcubt the Enyuirer't next ie?ue
gave quits a full account of the cele
brationa half column or more. The
entorprieiog reporter of today would
fill two or tares columa.
My diary makes quite a leap, for
tbe next recotd raads as follows:
"July 4, 1812. Whew I 4th July has
come at last; went to see the volun
teer companies march ; went to church
and beard the address ; saw the vol
unteer companies presented with flaw
tbe Memphis Blues by the ladies,
and the Kale Rid Guards by Ihe
gentlemen of our pitriotc city. Mra.
Mcintosh addressid the Bluen, and was
replied to by CapU Jeseph R. Williams;
the ladies then presented to them
their rWg; the Guards wereaddnssed
by Thomas Avery, and was replied to
by Capt. E. F. Roth; he (Avery)
ttien presented ttieir banner; they
marched all over town, then
went to tbo barbecue on Court
Square, where we ad ati and drank
plentifully. Oh, that a Fourth of Jo. y
would come once a month, but they
ate few and far between." Don't
criticise the composition, please; the
writer was but a boy of fifteen, then.
About four years after tbat ce'ebra
tion, tbe Blues and Guards (having
preserved their organizations and were
tbe pride of the ci'izens), responded
promptly to the call of tneir country
to give Mexico a few lessons in war,
and quite a number of our brave boys
left their bones bleaching on the
plains of Mexico, others were wounded
and returned home.
Today is another glorious Fourth of
July, but what havo our good-citizens
of the present, with all their wealth
and prosperity, done to commemorate
it? J. p. p.

trial in seven caaee of neuralgia. Se
