It will be seen from a card pub
lished in another column that Col.
Jcaiah Patterson withdraws from the
canvats as a candidate for Congress.
His candidacy was inspired by the
belief that Mr. Fhelan favored the
Blair bill and a protective tariff. So
soon ss Col. Fatterson discovered that
he and Mr. Fhelin were nearly in ac
cord on thf se questions be strionsly
contemplated withdrawing from the
canvats, as the canse which induced
his candidacy no longer existed. The
few speeches Col. Fatterson delivered
have added to his reputation as ono of
the ablest and soundest Democrats in
Tennessee. They had the genuine
ring of unalloyed gold and were as
clear as a winter landscape with snow
on the ground. Men are called to be
teacners who address great usem
blies of the people on public in
terests. It is not enough tht
they simply echo opinions al
ready prevailing; that the applause
of the niultitu Je can do. Bat the part
of the true loader of thought is to
place before (lie people idras which
they had not adequately compre
, bended, and in such a way that they
msy ba comprehended more fully.
The admirable speeches of Col. Fat
terson during bis ten days' candidacy
served this purpose well. His speeches
have a;hlod new honors to a reputa
tion that was already amply sufficient
to fill the measure of ordinary ambi
tion. Col. Patterson is a Democrat
true as the needle to the pole. Con
scientiousand fearlees, be has trod the
path oi right, even when that path
was rough and difficult. He hes
graced the bar of Tennessee, besuti
fed and adorned the walks of private
life. The reenlt cf the primary elec
tion in Shelby county was cot be
cause of any unpopularity or objection
. to Col. rat tor son, but because he
entered the canvass after public
' opionion had already concentrated
with singular unanimity on Mr.
Phelan, who, by an active canvass of
many months had, secured the good
Til! cf all and so many pledges
that it was impossible for any man in
the district to disarrange his plans or
defeat bis well organized forces. The
joint di'cus lia between Col, Patter
son and Mr. Phelan w.s animated,
but oouduo'ea by a strict ob
temncs . of kr.ight!y courtesy.
The two heroes in the popular play
never knew how much they liked
each other nntil they had wrestled,
and after the masterly speeches made
by thes; gentlemen in joint debate they
are compelled to admire and respect
each other. The declination of Col.
Pattenon leavts Mr. Phelan the only
candidate for Congrtsj, and the
ArriAL expresses the hope that
the convention tomorrow will
nominate him by a rising vote and by
acclamation. Such harmony and
unanimity would prestige success.
Public opinion has centered on Janios
Phi lau as the Democratic candidate
for Congress in the Tenth Tennoaece
District. AVith him as the candidate
the party will score a s'gnal victory on
the 21 of November. Phelan is genial
and popular, with a laudable ambition
and the ability to warrant bis asplra
tioas. The young Democrats are en
thusiastically enlisted in his behalf,
and with the enthnslasm they mani
fested to secure his nomination h's
election would be assured.
The people of Memphis know how
to sympathise with Charleston in her
misfortunes. In November, 1S79,
i Memphis presentW a sad spectacle.
There was no silver lining to the
clouds. Every thing was "dark, dark
irrevocably dark, total ocllrse with
out hope of day." AH had to com
mence business dcnoiv. There weie
no street pavements, no sewerage, and
the filthy streets seemed tJ be a hot
house for generating and warming
Into life the disease which bad deeo
lated the city. While biiBinees men
were conterapluting the ruin and all
were grieving over the dead, remorse
less creditors mocked at our calamity,
and to make the ruin complete, com
menced cutting for the last pound of
flesh. But ou; of the desperation of
despair was born new life and new
energy. A few men resolved to con
struct a new city on the old ruins,
and they went to work with an energy
and faith that was sublime. They
builded better than tbey knew, for
in all this broad Union there is no', a
' more prosperous city than Memphis.
t Katare haij fixed its Bite for one of the
grandest cities on the continent, and
our people have supplemented natu re's
work and our destiny is upward and
onward. It has a itart which will
make it the second if not the first city
in the South. We already Lava nine
railroads and half a doz?n others ore
coming. Ileal estate is on a boom ;
we have an excellent sawernge pyutoru,
good line's, good schools, fine
churches, men of wealth, enterprise
and intelligence, and every factor for
prosperity. If the peiole of CharlcE-
ton will contrast tbe present conditii n
of Memphis with that of November,
1879, they will take heart and hope.
Money Is pouring into the city and
the people have the sympathy of tbe
whole country. But as the
Shylocks commenced Dickies: the
bones of Memphis in Xovem
ber, 1879, to has heartless ava
rice commenced stabbicg Charles
ton in her rules. It is said by tbe
Richmond Stale that the commercial
men of rival cities are representing
that Cbarbston's commercial facilities
are bopelet sly injured, and tbat it can
no longer hope to retain them, and
tbat here and there a drummer has
been attempting to rnn in on Charles
ton's customers with the design of d
verting the trade in the midst of the
excitement of the earthquake. Ene
mies have asserted that tbe commer
cial facilities of Charleston have been
so injured that the bnsinees of the
port cannot be expeditiously transact
ed. This report is malicious and un
callod for. Tbe well vouched for
statements from tbat city have from
the first set forth tbat tbe port
of Charleston was absolntely nnin
juml. The vessels in the harbor
expeiiencod no barm from the earth
quake. That water front is as it was
before. Indeed, it seemed like an in
terposition of Providence tbat this
should have been so. The people -are
working with untiring energy. They
have every Incentive to labor, for it is
to the result of their commercial push
that they must look for tbe rebuilding
of their city. We note ivilh pleasure
and pride that the commercial facili
ties of the gallnnt old city are in ex
cullent trim, and we wish her mer
chanti grcnt success in their new en
terprises. The earthquake was a dis
aster to ltiarlcston such as no
city in tbe United fc'latijs ever
sustained. It was unparalleled
in our history. Charleston nteda
sympathy and aid, and now for any
one lo attempt to rob ber of the one
sole property that was not taken from
her by the great calamity is so mean,
so ungenerous and selfish, so violative
of commercial chivalry, and so exactly
tbe reverse of what Charleston heixelf
would have done to any other city in
her position, that mankind in general
must blush and turn away, loathing
tbe man who would thus stamp on a
fellow peer distress.
Our good neighbors of the Domin
ion appear to be rousing up to a per
ception that it is about time an end
was put to the Macdonald govern"
meat that has S3 long dominated
there. In the weet the Liberals are
becoming strong, and are heartily tired
of Macdonald conservatism. The
French are mostly on the same Bide in
Lower Canada, and now both are re.
ceiving accessions from Nova Scotia
and the disunionists of New Bruns
wick and Prince Edwards Island.
These latter, which form the "mari
time provinces," do not find the ex
isting union to their iwl vantage. They
have interests different from these ol
the inland people, but the Inlander
have the majority, and the coast
provincts'enfl'or. These provinces de
sire to be once more simp'e colonies
of Britain, fiee from the tariffs and
fishing regulations that ero robbing
them of their trade. The newly elected
Parliament of Novn Scotia litis
an overwhelming majority in favor of
-cession, and the oilier two provinces
are expected to stand equally strong
in some two or three years. Mr,
Fielding, the present head of the Nova
Scotian Provincial Government, said
recoutly, in an interview: "Nova
Scotiu Is decided on tbe desirability of
securing its separation from tbe Do
mm on." hub result Uemonotrat'S

policy. m '

mere is no particular change in tbe
situation today, but the work of rough
repairing ia going on in every part of
the city. It is impossible to restore
building to their former condition,
jut thy are putting on a better ap-peia-nce.
and the very hum of labor
tends to lighten the situation. There
is a scarciry cf bricklayer and plas
terers, hut numerous applications for
work come in daily. Tne Relief Com
mittee todav Considered th rnnditmn
of Summerville and the villages along
the line of the tr'outb. Carolina railway
and of the town of Mount Pleasant,
opposite Charleston, and resolved
unanimously tbat the locses on these
places should be Drovided fur in rhw
ra'io cf their amount on the same b;srs
as tbe losses in Charleston. The feel
ing of the committee is tbat, while
tbe moat of the funds were gent in thn
name of Charleston, the intention of
the donors was to furnish relief to the
wnore eartnquake district in this vi-
cmity. Most of the tents and shelters
provided for the refugees ia the city
have arrived, aid the intention is to
