Ths workingmen of Memphis are making an effort to estabiieh a joint stock company, wilh a capital of $200, 000, for mutual benefit, and to aid in aaving interest on gurplna earnings, and to facilitate and prepare for future in vestment in tbe interest of mechanics. Tbue combining they may profit tbem telves and become at the game time public benefactors, by establishing manu facture in one or more forma. They have seen tbe indifference of capitalist to what they know so well to be profitable investments, and by combining, hope to embrace tbe opportunities which capitalists of our section so willingly let slip. Tbey know all the cost and profit of mechanical enterprise, and tbeir ac tion, with feeble means, not only shows tbe cooictions which with full knowledge they entertain, but aUo indicates a con .?mnation of tbe teo Rreot absence of public spirit, wbicb, in tbe cspitalisls of Memphis, would be so valuable to the city, as well as to themselves. Most Leartily do we commend tbe enterpriie of these gentlemen, and btspeak for it encouragement uod success. Tb officers of tbe Association have already been chosen Thomas Mcffer, President ; I D. Anderson, Vice President; John Gann, Treasurer, and W. J- Mansford, Secretary. Tbe Pljinoathlte. The following indorsement of our lovely and pious New England Pbarisee is from the St. Joseph Herald, a Grant, Radical, negro orf,n of Missouri. It has discovered a mote in tbe eyes 'of its Northern friend, to stand against tbe beam of " crime in tbe South," and says : It is stated that twelve convicted crim- i .Via v,Mitinn of tbe mm in .1, - - ' " " " ; - death sentence in the State prison of much of it proems and enlightenment a does New England, but it is evident that the merals of the people of that sec tion are not improving, and that they are very far from being- good.

That is certainly a road which It unlike the Paducah road, In that verv fact, that while the first can- uot, the last can be taken from us, or at least be compelld to be built at armi length, Bud with inoreated taorifioe and difficulty. If the Paducah road is built at once it will pay at once, and will run no risk of eharing profit! with the Cen tral road lor a long time, if ever. . We t,nnM tharafnre build tbl at onct Bl the first neceasitr. while the Valley road can mnr. aafelv be allowed to vmt its tl me We fully appreciate and heartily concur in the suggestion of Col. irezevant as to the Vallev road. It il a work of vast importance, and will drain a section Mmaiiainui which, fully brought ii of into cultivation, it capable of producing more cofton than all the Bouthern btaut com bined ever have yet produeed. With the Paducah road built, we thall have all iVm nspenaarlea of life cheapened and made abundant With the Valley road we thall have additional cotton, merest Irs in nuantitT from year to year. We want both. But that which ia easiest to do, and uost within our meant, and m DOSt immediately valuable to tir, we should accomplish first, and do more as we shall consequently become more able. Druioeralle Haas Mooting;. An address has been issued and a call signed by thirty of the most prominent citicent of Arkansat for a mast meeting of the Democratic party, to convene at Little Rock on tbe 8th day of January next to take into consideration the m.u anil welfare 01 ine omi Thr ii an . aoxiout desire for good order and good government pervading tbe mindt of all good men of all parties. And we hope tbe consulta tion may result in such protection as good and low abiding men need. Living in tuch circumstances, however, we should not be able to see tbe use of much talking. If tbe pence and protection of families cannot or will not be secured by tbe autboritiee and the laws, there is nothing to debate about Is there any doubt or reasen whatever to be nrged why an outraged people should not protect themselves? When crimes are being daily committed, against which hu man nature revolts, and tbe blood of the innocent, wronged and slain, cries to God for vengeance, is it a matter of debate whether an efficient defense shall be made ? If so, let thieves and felons and murderers riot at will. It may be dangerous to oppose them. Let ns have peace. Tlie Majority Orlppe. A Washintrton correspondent of the Rirhmon i Elsvatch tavs: "It has been plainly teen tbat the disposition of the majority in Congrets l,till to hold a ligni grip upon the S .uth. That in itself is one of tbe reasons why the Senate will, in all likelihood, apd tbe House also, re fuse to pass an act repealing the tenure- of-oSce act. They will not allow any one to be annotated to office who is not thoroughly identified with the majority is fseline and interest: nor will tney permit any of tbe same order of officials to be removed. If Grant it animate by sDirit of magnanimity to the south whn he tteos ioto the Executive Man sion at its occupant for the next four years, he will be at narrowly watohed aod closely suspected at ever Johnson was." On onr first Daze will be found an ar ticle from a friend of CoL Tate, in which some additional facts, arguments.etc, are stated, and which will speak tor itseit. We omit comments, not having exam- ned tbe article sufficiently nor having space for tbe purpose to.day. BY "TELEGRAPH. LATENT TO NOS TODAT. ALABAMA. ' MeaiLS, December 22.

Nkw Yobk, December 22 The Brook lyn Common Council last evening voted to subscribe $300,000 to aid in building a bridze across East river. Such sum to be paid in installments after $2,000,000 have been subscribed by other parties. Geo. A.

He was held for trial in default of $i000 baiL Kigusmund Guiterman and Simeon Guiterman, importer,, on Heed street, were yesterday held for examination by Commissioner Butts, npon charge of defrauding the Government out of many tbobeamd dollars, by means of smuggling silks, shawls, and oilier valuable articles. Tbe examination af the matter will take place on Wednesday next. The Timet says of the Indian troubles, that the policy now determined upon and nnder execution by Sheridan is entirely new. Tbe army commander bas ben compelled to adopt it by the miserable failures of the Indian Agents and Peace Commissioners, and he ought not to be obttructed in its execution by delay upon tbe part of Conirres,, or unadvised inter ference by tbe President. A permanent peace can new be obtained throngb an energetic and ucce,sful war. The Herald thinks that tbe declining tendency in Government bonds it due to the tinkering policy of Congres. The 7Vi6ns't Washington special eys that Gen. Grant bat ordered Gen. Bab cock to vit and inquire ioto the condi tion of affairs in Arkaniae, and to report at once to headquarters.
