A Practical Illustration of What
Men Will Do for Office.
Should any one hereafter deny the
ability of" dat colored cuss from Africa"
to govern this happy and otherwise dis
tracted country we shall spot hiin as a
hellish fiend, whoso breast is envenomed
with deadly treason to the best govern
ment tho world ever saw.- Woshallslmn
him as a pcslilonco, and point tho finger
of scorn at him as on fitted only for
treason, stratagem and spoils. The
mark of Cain shall be i ndelibly stamped
on his brow, and tho midnight owl shall
hoot his name in accent discordant and
frightful that will freeze one's young
blood, and pause each ps rticular hair to
stand on each particule.r end. That's
what's the matter.
The grand Radical thiuigamy, which we
should call a convention if not fearful
that the author of the wot d would shiver
us with a thunderbolt fcr perpetrating
such exquisite irony, came off at the
Opera House last night. We never
enjoyed the felicity of intimacy with the
howling Dervishes ; but if those mystical
beings can compete with tho beatific
assemblage alluded to, thoir knowledge
of the Dervish business is ample for all
practical purposes. It was a conglome
ration of all the odds and ends, rag-teg
and bob tail of Memphis Radicalism.
Africa everywhere predominated. His
numerical superiority darkened the
spacious edifice like a huge,bla-ck shadow,
and the gentlemanly nshers were com
pelled to increase the volume of gaslight
that white folks might get about Big
niggers and little niggers, large niggers
and small niggers, immense niggers and
petite niggers, old niggera and young
niggers, aged niggers and jroulhful nig
gers, centenarian niggers and spring
chicken niggers, black niggers and
yellow niggers, brown rtiggers and
saddle-colored niggers, spry niggers and
lame niggers, dull niggers and bright
niggers, blind niggers and 4eaf niggers,
nig niggers and nigger niggers, with a
sprinkle of African niggers, and here and
there a man and brother, -were on hand,
with chalk eyes large as saucers, which
glistened like pewter dollars in a mud
hole, or unhealthy mackerels by moon
light. Interspersed with these noble sons
of the soil were small squads, whom the
un attired optic revealsd as white men.
They seemed duly conscious of their
inferiority to the great colored Jugger-
aaut, and humbly abased themselves
before its magnetic presence, willing to
be crushed beneath its wheels. The
spectacle brought tears to the eyes of the
few disloyal white men in tho rear, who
were too unfortunate to be cither niggers
or enjoy tho felicity of Africa's social
recognition.
Tho Opera House seats are cushioned.
ahd not being used to " sicb," Africa.
ileclined reposing his manly form there
on. So his manly hoofs, fresh from the
streets, were deposited instead, and this
morning Mr. Greenlaw found his real
estate largely increased. It was evident
that the contest for Mayor lay between
Shaw and Becchcr, and the champions
of each had stunning transparencies in
abundance, whereon tho virtues of tlieso
noble champions of freedom and this
glorious Union were engraven in the
highest style of art A few of these
virtues wero thus touchingly and classi
cally enumerated:
" Shaw is always Shawest
H Tiger for Shaw."
" Old Whcclhorso Shaw." '
" Bully for Shaw."
" Shaw-T Swco-T."
" Shaw thirty years an Abolitionist
ho was."
" Beechcr is for tho People."
" We is for P. D. Beccher."
" Co mo this way, Beecher."
Others equally touching were waved in
the parquctte, but the genius who con
ceived these chaste mottoes and the
enincnt artist who transfixed them to
m mortal canvas, do not advertise in
this journal, and we dismiss the subject
The-'Vhat-is It" was called to dis
order by the venerable Grandmother
I! u uter, who resembled patience on a
monument smiling at grease. She occu
pied a front seat on the stage. Blewis
was also there, his classic face beaming
with smiles. Dr. Toles occupied a
prominent place, a veritable incarnation
of the Apollo Belvidcre. Ham Carter
and all the conspicuous white and black
brethren were sprinkled over the stage
n bold relief; while John II. Bowen,
Sam. Sangster, Steve Wilkins and other
trew converts, modestly kept in the rear.
AlthojiCh ol conrie nothing was turtner
from ire fact, we could not help thinking
they felt a little athamed of the com
pany they were in. Dovetailed among
the colored pairiota were also Wfcker-
ihatn, Daily, Col. Chandler, Dr. White,
etc.
SHAW SLAUGHTERED. -
Grandmother Hunter opened the ball
by announcing that the time bad arrived
for nominations. Some fellow moved
that women and children be excluded.
Carried, but no gushing colored females
or lovely little knobs of the Freedmen's
Bureau stirred. They bad come to see
"disyeh convempahum." Beecher an
nounred himself as "Mnyor af Mem
phis," and kindly consented to abide by
the decision of the " What Is-It" Shaw
also promised to abide by this decision,
but said it with trembling voice and
lugubrious face. It was all over with
Shaw, lie had the transparencies; and
yells loud enough to drown a thousand
million devils in Pandemonium rent the
air with his name. But little Beecber's
drum had assembled his dusky clans and
hopelessly packed the house. Grand
mother Hunter's selection as chairman
was a Beecher triumph. Two thousand
niggers and a few whites huddled to
gether in the vast hall like crowds at a
raco course. There were no delegations,
livery fellow who wanted to vote, voted,
and for an hour there was more howling
to the square inch than anybody ever
heard before. "Give us Shaw," "old
Shaw," "oh, my lovely, lovely Shaw;"
" Decchcr," " Dr. P. I). B," " Come to
my arms, Honey,', mingled with curses
and hoots and hisses, wero the order of
the evening. Grandmother Hunter in
vain Bought to quiet tho sovereigns.
Uor long, bony nnns moved to and fro
with a " bless you, my children " motion,
but the sombre wave surged all the more.
That venerable female was powerless, ntid
an uncha-ite nigger in the pit yelled for
somebody to take " tint damn scarecrow
off from da stngo, and quit he d n
sco-saw." The old lady's eye deadened
at this rebtiko by one of her masters ;
her lower jaw droppod and Dr. Tolcs
trod on it. Another yell. Col. Beau-moi-t
now arrived, resplendent with
brass buttons. Elevating his deep bass
voice two hundred and seventy-fivo
octaves, ho with furious gestures de
manded silence. Africa responded by a
succession of yells aud hoots that cracked
tho roof and laid all previous demon
strations in the shade. Oneunregenerale
cuss made disloyal motions at bis high
ness with a flaming transparency, and
half a dozen policemen rushed to the
rescue. Transparency subsided. After
their windpipes collapsed the uproar
was mellowed to the consistency of first
class thunder. Grandmother Hunter
recovered from the stupor in which the
scene 'had thrown her, and the " bless
you, my children" business was resumed.
Beaumont sawed tbe air like a veritable
Don Quixote. His arm went rapidly
through the sword exercise, and his blue
coats went rapidly through the house,
shouting " this here d n yelling must
be stopped or the .show can't go on."
Forty fellows on the stage joined in the
arm-jerking business, and all over the
hall bats, canes and transparencies fol
lowed suit ' Finally Grandmother Hun
ter, waving her arm classically, shouted:
" Gentle-m-e-n (to the niggers), all Dr.
Beecher's friends get on the south side
(a general rush that way), and all Dr.
Shaw's friends get on the north side" (a
furious rush toward tho north). "Are
there any Beecher men on the north
side?" Deafening yells of "yes," fol
lowed by deafening yells'of " no." " Are
there any Sbaw men 'on the south side?"
Frightful yells of "yes" and " no."
Energetic nigger in the dress circle:
"Which am de norfside?" After con
sultation Grandmother proffered the
desired information, and Cuffeo " broke"
for the south side. That the house was
packed for little Beechcr could be seen
by the novices ; but to clinch the nail in
Shaw's coffin, Ham Carter rushed to the
footlights and commenced furiously
puncturing the innocent air. "Hear what
dut nigger's gwine to orate." " Listen
to 6V clurium tones." The tempest mo
mentarily lulled, and Ham opened his
oration trap. " Let tho Beechcr men
keep quiet; lot tho Shaw d d thioves
and scalawags and rascals go on with
their yelling. We've put Beecher for
ward, and we'll nominate him in spite of
the Shaw s of b a who come into
this here convention. They aro nothing
but d d thieves and ruffians I" Deafen
ing jells followed, and continued until
the brazen throats of the contributors to
the Pandemonium refused to longer
fulfill their office. Meanwhile Bcamont,
Hunter, Bowen, Toles & Co. persevered
in the "bless you, my children" see-saw.
Blewis suddenly stepped to the front, his
face illumined with the beatific alligator
smilo wont to piny upon his classic
features. Ho had a dispatch to read. It
was from W. J. Smith, who telegraphed:
" Cun't come down would lovo to meet
the lion-hearted Union men in council,
but can't lGth section is np working
for its repeal night and day (' hoora for
Smith ') am with party and will support
the nominee withdraw name." (" Three
cheers for Smith," more yells, more
hoots, more howling Dervish.) This was
another flank movement against Shaw.
Everybody understood Smith's with
drawal a stroke for little Beechor. There
was no division of the house. Great
masses huddled everywhere ; but it was
clear enough for Grandmother Hunter.
That lovely female again waved her lily-
bite hand, and endeavored to still the
tempest ' Gentlemen, it appears mat
Dr. Beecher has the majority; therefore
Dr. Beechcr is the nominee of the Repub
lican party for Mayor." Loud and con
tinued yelling by the Beechcrites; furious
curbing by the Shawites, who had been
treathtrously overslaughed. One Col
Alexander jumped at Hunter, shook his
fist menacingly at the old gal, and said it
was a " d n trick. We don't stand any
such dirty tricks; there's bee ft no divi
sion; it's d d cheating; I demand a
fair decision." (Uisse, yells and more
hoots.) Mr. Hunter s atnped ber No.
14, and declared the decision fair and
according to tbe rules cf the convention.
Of oourse It was pure farce, but it suited
Hunter; and the Sbawites went down
sadly demoralised.
WB ARfUASTER.
A stout-lunged individual bad piped
out " Sangiter " at short intervals duriag
tbe evening, doubtless believing that
gentleman a candidate foaall tbe offices.
The crowd took np the word, and it went
through the house as "I.angitor,
"Bangster," "Jangster," " Hangster,"
and everything else approximating at all
to the original. William McLain, Steve
W. Wilkins and William Morrison were
the candidates for wharfmssler. Grand
mother Hunter ordered the McLain men
to tbe north, and the Wilkins men to the
south. No rush, much confusion, crowd
huddled as before. " Geutle m e o, Mr.
McLain has the majority for wharfmas
twr, and is the nomineo." Poor Wilkins,
late of the Conservative parly. Exit
Morrison. McLain was Hunter's man,
and the trick worked as before
CITT TAX COLLECTOR,
More yells by the Sangsterilo in the
corner, and "Langstcr," " Bangster,"
"Hangster" again went the rounds. This
time Sangster Sam. 0. was a candi
date, and his Uoswell howled himself
hoarse. John II. Bowen, lute of the
Conservative party, was put in nomina
nation by nigger Rankin. Cries of
"Bowen," "Bowing," " Borem," and
" Borcin." J. P. Foster, lifo-time
Radical, was nominated by the dis
tinguished Dr. Laski. Grandmother
Hunter was for Bowen. She majesti
cally waved the Bowcnitvs to the
south and tho Fosterites to ' the
north. The loud voiced Sangstcrite, who
probably'wuBu't ono of Snngater's com
rades in the Confederate army, contin
ued howling for "Sangster" and here
and there voices re-echoed " Langster,"
"BatigHter" and " Ilangstcr," until it
was found unavailing. Then the chief
Sangster howler, who had doubtless
perused Hugo's description of Waterloo,
gathered himself like a tiger before
springing, aud loudly shrieked the word
with which that author immortalized
Cambrouue. Tbis was his withering
criticism of the gay and festive scene, aud
expressed to a T his understanding of
the material of which the " What-is-It"
was composed. Thus the Sangster star
bliuked out Of course Bowen was
nominated. He was formerly an ex
treme Southerner, being once displaced
from office as a secessionist by General
Washburn. But unpleasant by-gones
should not be raked np. The fact that
his nomination was made unanimous
shows that he has repented and been
elevated to tbe pinnacle of the Radical
temple. Otherwise, how could he dis
tance a life-long "Radical like Foster,
who stuck to the party when Bowen
shouted for Jeff, Davis and Lee, and
prayed for the success of the Confeder
ate arms? We record Bowen's deser
tion of the Southern men who from time
to time have honored him with office,
with sorrow. We have more thou once
labored and voted for bim. When Mr.
Bowen announced himself a candidate
through the Leooeb he led us to believe
he was a conservative Southern man.
And in a short complimentary notice we
recommended him to our friends as such.
We doubt if tbe emoluments of his office"
should he be elected, will compensate
for the loss of his life-long friends. .
PRIVILEGE COLLECTOR.
The contest was between CoL J. L.
Chandler and Uncle Jeems Davis,
Grandmother Hunter waved the Chand
leritesotieway and theDuvisitea another
way. The Chandlerites easily walked
over tho course, and Uncle Jeems went
down stiff and sore. "Original 1'ive
was left out in the coldfbr a man of
intelligence, whose solo motive power is
not malice. We can say this for Col.
Chandler, whom, politically, we admire
about as much as a Fenian loves Queen
Victoria. If compelled to "have a Radi
cal in the office, wa cau recall no one
who will fill it more acceptably to the
public than the Colonel.
RTRRET COMMISSIONER.
J. E. Ilelm, ex policemen, and Tbos.
Malone, tho present incumbent, were
announced. Tho old trick soon allowed
Grandmother Hunter to pronounce Helm
the nominee. Then, alter the selection
of a central committee, somebody moved
an adjournment, and the black cloud
burst iuto fragments.
FINALE.
Shnw, while a thorough Radical in pol
itics, is no dirt eater. Beecher suddenly
changed from Copperheadism to lick
spittleism, refused to associate with white
men, and sought the society of niggers.
Ho huinhlcd himself before them, and
clur.g to their garments with an Eastern
devotion. His nomination is the result
of tqadyism which disgusted the better
class of blacks. His only friends among
people with white faces were Grand
mother Hunter and tho old lady's especial
admirers. Intellectually, ho is the veriest
pigmy compared with any of bis compet
itors. But more than a thousand blacks,
ignorant of even the nature of the posi
tion, unnble to read or write, and voting
ns Grandmother Hunter dictated, packed
tho house and swept everything before
them.
It is understood that tho Beecherites
imported three hundred negroes from
beyond Nonconnah, to more effectually
pack "the " What is It" They left for
home after midnight Although beaten
by disgraceful trickery, Dr. Shaw, having
been committed to abide the decision,
will not remain in tbe field. CoL Fitch
is still a candidate, and will open tbe
ryes of the darkies relative to the modus
operandi of Beecber's nomination. Fos
ter, beaten in convention for Tax Col
lector, will sot be crowded off tbe track.
Bowen's rebel record will be his chief
argument and a powerful one. Steve
Wilkins is still in the field, determined
not to be forced out by the packing
process. The mix. is lovely.

From Rev. S. II.lForJ, LL.D.
A Testimonial, Eto. I have much
pleasure in Introducing Professor Tovell
to the young men of Memphis, and to
the business community generally, as a
gentleman worthy of their confidence
and patronage. Professor Tovell bas
been known to me for many years, and
it comes within my personal knowledge
to say that, as one of the professors of
the oldest Commercial Colleges in Mis
souri, located at St Louis, be enjoyed
the reputation of an accomplished and
most indefatigable teacher. I lay thus
much, not less in the interest of the
cause of education in thisciy, than as a
matter of justice to Professor Tovell
himelf; for I am fully persuaded that
in Professor Tovell will be found not
only a thorough and pains taking teacher
in the special departments of study pur
sued at the Desoto Commercial College,
but also an important reinforcement of
the professional corps of Memphis. I
know of no way iu which young men
can get so ample a return for thoir
investment of lab'r and money as by
patronizing the Desoto ' Commercial
College. 8. H. FeRD. t
