Matter of Fact Statement.
Uuagsvn.LR, Miss , Octobsr 7. The
iaauei between (ien. Ctchins, tbe
Demoera'ia candidae for Congress in
this ilistiict, and Judge Simrall, the
Republic in candidate, are fairly
joined, and theie is every reason to
believe that the former will be re
elcttd ib a triumphant vindication
of h a conduct in tbe present Con
gress. The f il.oairg addresp, irresist
ible in its logic, lyn just been baaed
hy tbe chairman of the Democratic
Address of the Dttraaeralle Commit.
To the Votara of th Third Corjf renlonal
Dutriot of Miaaiuippi:
In inaugarating tbe present canvafs
for Ocngress, we deem it proper to
briefly revitw the situation and call
jour attention to the issues iovolved.
'I his ia the only tiittrii t of tbe State
which has, outside of the issues in
volved in iieneial pol'tic?, direct, vita),
mater al interests to beprissnt'd to,
a'lvota'ed and urged, before the Ka
li -mil Legislature.
Tho improvement of the lower Mis
nits ppi by the general yoveri ment,
and ilie btcefi s to be eeiived there
from by tbe commercial ci!i :8 and the
aliuvial lamia t.f the d strict, has fir
ytarspBt been ajrreid by commoa
c insei.t to be a su-ject of prime im
portance to their material develop
mniit and prosper ty.
Two yenrs ego the D mocr.it'c party
p'eo"ned itself for tho zial, tflijieiicy
and ability with which its then candi
date, Qn, CatciiirgB, stould servs ti.e
d st iiu in this, i s mos'. important i titer-et
Tiint pledge has bet n amply
and fully redeemed. Th Congresi,
then about to expire, had refused to
miko any approi riat.on for th- river,
or to eubstmtally rtcg dzs turhar
bots. O EN. .,TC1IN(IS,
u;ou his entrance into Co? gross, was
enabled at once to obtain a position oa
the Rivera and Harbors Committee, a
position which he still holds aad
which may bs said to be essential to
the eflLinrcy of the member repres
t'ng this district. To his holding this
pontion and ti his earnest individual
ellott is alone due the fact that the
commercial importance of Vickjbnrg
and Greenville was rectgniz d at the
liiB. s.ssioncf the present Congress,
and appropriations mida f :r the pro
tection of ihe'r bar-ore.
But vast y more important to the
district generally was tne obtaining if
renewed recoguition by Congreaa of
tbe clairis of tbe Mississippi r'vnr
upon tbe public Treasury. The diffi
cultiej tlut stood in the way are bnt
lit'le undorfctuod by the geneml pub
lie. The riverj and hatbjrs bill had
b n defeated by the preceding Con
gtes', mainly becimw of the item for
the benefit of the Mistis ipp'. The
flrjt and mont important work to be
done at the lastsessicn was to Bcuie
favorab'e action by the committee.
UnloBB the bill as reported from that
committee contained an appropria'ion
f r
further tffortwas idle end hopeles'.
Without it, tbe river would not be
able to obtain even a hearing on the
flo rof Oongros'.
Of the fifteen members of that com
n.ilt only two, Messrs. Catchings
and Blacchaid, lepiesented districts
immediately in erected in tho lower
Mifsin;ppi. Upon their effirts uia; il
ly it had to tely for recognition by this
commi'te?, and t their efTorta is
main'y due the fact that tbe bill as
reported by tbe commutes con t lined
an appropriation of $2,000,000 for the
lower river and appropriations for
M iiiiphis, Gr.enville, Vicksburg and
Nov O.lr mis.
When tie bill came before the
IIuuso the appropriation forthaMi-:-eia.-i
t i river movoked bi ter and able
opposition. The railroad in'eresta of
tbe North and Ka-t, directly inter. fl ed

who antagoniz'd it on cooit tu ioiul

South, and with the largs number
who felt indifl'erent aud vottd on gen
eial principles agiinst theexpoi di'ur
of public money, exoept wliere ih'ir

which was led by the ablest men ol

of tse friends cf the rivor all of iheir

Alaays in tbe right plncf, always on
tbe aler. nevrr uumimlful of duty to
his conitituency, with his whole soul
and every eceigy o' his mind era
batked in the cou'twt, it can be safely
as?ertel, and proved by the record,
that to no one of tbe gallant little
band of meml ers representing directly
the lower Missitsippl, was the final
BuicasBuf the appropriat on for its
benefit more justly dun than to Gen.
Catchings. His priRiilon on the com
mits gave him iitlnence in framirg
