THE BATTLE TO-MORROW. Ths re-election of Johnson will re mote all clouds tliat haug over the fu. lure of Memphis, because, by the. end of his second termite financial condi tion will be entirely out of the woods. Johnson's administration has attracted the attention not only of people of intel licence at home, but of the people of other States and cities. Shall we give up such a man at a time when we begin to see light ahead, and can almost mark the very spot where the complications that have afflicted us will fall to pieces, like Rip Van Winkle's gun, and leare as in the undisturbed light T What if John son, at some time of his life, has done something, not connected with the city government, that many people may not like. What has that to do with the matter? No, the objection to John son on the part of his opponents nroceeds from other causes. It is perfectly ludicrous for men to de nounce him and then turn to League. Now, we hare not attacked Mr. Loague as a citizen, and do not intend to do so. It is bis pretentions that we attack. It is his Taunting assumption to be equal to the great task of governing this city, that we assail. What has Loague done for the city? What has he done for any body, corporation or thing, except him self? In what has his ability been dis played as an executive officer, or as a financier? Do yon point to the ciroom stance that he has grown rich? How? Not by labor, certainly. We do not know in what manner. No matter. That fact gives him no claim to statesman ship. Bat in Johnson we nave a man who performs the most signal service to the public in silence. People did not know that he was working out great ends until he Lad accomplished them. There he sat through all the days, silent, stern, but ' ever at his tank. Nothing moved him from the course he had marked oat after intense reflection. He struggled with many difficulties was checked here and there by obstacles that would discourage a less tenacious nature. But he did not falter, nor turn back, but hewed them down and went on. Will the people of Memphis dismiss such a man for one who, to say the least, is untried? Will they plunge into the dark again? for to elect Loague will be to go -out into the darkness. We cannot believe it. We will not believe it THE CENSUS AID TE1HESIEK. From the advance sheets of the popu lation volume of the statistics of the ninth census we take the following fig ures with reference to Tennessee: The constitutional population of the United States, excluding Indians (not taxed) and the inhabitants of the territories, upon the 1st of June, 1870, was 38,113, 253, the increase during the decade be ing 6,929,609, or a gain of 22.22 percent Tennessee has increased from 1,109,801 to 1,258,620, a gain of 13 40 per cent) it rank among the 6ttes being nine instead of ten, as in I860. Of the aggregate of 38,113,203 in the United States the white population embrace 33.200.740. an increase of C.609,960 daring the decade, or 24.39 per cent The white population of Ten nessee has changed from 826,722 to m,U9 during the decade, being a gain of 13.23 per cent; rank twelve, instead of ten among the States. The colored population of the United States increased during the decade from 4 427.2M to 4.S:i5,llC a gain of 9.21 per cent The colored population of Tea "usee has increased during the decade from 283,019 to 322,331 a gain uf 13.89 per cent., and ranks among the States eight as in lhfiO. The number of Indi ans found in Tennessee was seventy. By fieeiug the slaves in Tennessee 11.09 per cent has been added to the repre sentative population of the State, or from 9.5ia to 1.25?. 620 a gain of 26 91 per cent Under the apportion ment of representatives fixed by Con gress by act of March, 186J, at 24l, Ten nessee is entitled to eight Representa tives in Congress The number of deaths occurring during the decade la Tennes see from anknowa causes were 762.

Number ol ciuxene deprived of suffrage elsewise than for rbtllion and other erimt, 733. The number of male citisens of Shelby county, of twenty-one yere and upwards, is 20,399.

There are evils it is impossible for any government to break up. They ever have, and ever will exist under any form of government or any stringency of ad ministration. All history teaches Wis faot What is best to do witawemr If they cannot he suppressed, should they not be compelled to pay a penalty to the publio for their existence? . This, seems to us, is oommon sens. Johnson is denounced tor uomg ju this thing. We lax the merchant ior the nrivileire of selling goods, aud the drayman for the privilege of running his drays, aud nothing is thought of it, but if some nameless professions are teied. whv then an objector rises to ob ject We admit that the tax imposed on these professions is irregular, dui anm right to tax the legitimate professions, why, in the name of common sense, may nt those of an illegitimate cnaracwr be taxed in the nature of penally? POOR D0DQE. W. ia not think W. H. Stevens would accept office under John Loague, nor do we believe that Gsneral Pattoa Ander son would do so. .We warn the people aot to be influenced by reports that prominent Democrats, men who have been honored for years, would have anything to do with s Badical city .ad ministration. The dodge to place tnem in that position is so thin' that one can read the finest print through it. in case of election, we have uu v' Loague would have none but Kadicaie about him. " ' THI TREMBLERS. It is reported that the colored voters fear a row on the day of election, and are asking for United States soldiers. That's it; we expected as much. The Kadical, Loague party. lhe military party. This report is put in the wrong .hane. It should alledge that the col- ,a ... fearino- the election of Uim , . Johnson, desire the presenoe of troops to prevent it We do n4 believe that a solitary colored voter fears the occur rence of a row on to-morrow. The pre tense is only to get troops here. . IHALL IT BE7 Shall it be telegraphed all over the United States that, Memphis, with a Democratic majority of thousands, has elected a Radical Mayor? Shall all the great Kadical . hives of the North swarm out and snn themselves in the glorious news? Shall the ad ministration be made happy? Shall Grant give a more vigorous puff to his cigar and take courage to cover the South with martial law? Gentlemen ot the Democratic party, think of this. A special to the Avalanche from Bol ivar, dated yesterday, says: The stock holders of the Memphis and Enoxville Air Line railroad met here to-day and had a complete ' organization. The following are the Directors; 8helby onnntv A. M. Alson and R. Fields; Favette D. 8. Boswell and James Wil liamson: Hardeman James Fentress, B. P. Neely and P. T. Jones; McNairy M. R. Abernathy; Hardin S. W. Irwin. President R. V. Neely. Harmony pre- vailed and great hope of the work being let out at an early day is entertained. The election to-morrow will proceed ;th tan ntmoat order. The army of the United States will not be needed, We want no military array to overawe tbe neoDle. We want no marshals to Kuard the ballot-box. Every Johnson man intends to vote quietly and go about his business. The mob spirit is not to be found among the men whe ouDuort Johnson. It must be looked for elsewhere. We had hoped that some arrangement would be made by the Wharfmaster as- niranta, by which only one candidate on the Democratic side would remain. But we fear that we have hoped in vain We do not see that such an arrangement is likelv to be made. It is most unfor tunate. It is stated that Grant's first act of Civil Service R-form will be to turn every Federal appointee, even down to the letter-carriers, out of office, who are not in favor of his re-election. This is said to be the sole motive that prompted his late manifesto. That packed investigating committee of the Senate is received most suspi ciously by the people of all parties In the country. Senator Wilson even declares " that the composition of the committee will be accepted by the country as an admission that the administration can not afford to allow full and free investi gation." So m people, probably, do not want a good Mayor, but prefer an indifferent one. Loague ia the man for them. Own BIX Aseeeawra.

' v ILp morning journals all contain long editorials, on Gov. Hoffman's message, which appears to eet their approval.

Governor Hay's retiring message was read before the House of Representa tives at Columbus yesterday. He pre sents the financial affairs of the State in a favorable light, though the heavy bur den of local taxation still deserves at tention. ' He makes some excellent sug gestions in regard to railroad corpora tions, public schools and other mat ters. He recommends the purchase of a mansion by the State for the resi dence of its future Governors. He also proposes a commission of investigation to discover official abuses, and- to keep corruption lu check. The message is commendably brief and direct. Trasredjr la Little Bark. Little Rooi.

A Car, frana Ike Meeanhte ClaallcM JBMay.- To th Publio i The board of directors of the Mem phis Gaslight Company desire to declare, in an authoritative manner, the future policy of their company in regard to the sale of gas .' Our company is possessed of the moat complete and ample appurtenances neo oisarv for the manufacture and distribu tion of an adequate supply of illumina ting gas for the city of Memphis, the right to vend which we claim as an ex elusive and vested right In addition te the extensive works for the manufacture of coal gas, ws have in operation appa ratus for manufacturing goa from nap- tha, nnder the process secured oy tne Rand A Gale patent. By this method (owned and controlled entirely by us), an illuminating gas is manufactured by our company superior to that which any other oompany oan manufacture in this city by trom Wty to one nunareu per oent. . This is a fact whieh will be come patent to every gas consumer of the city should another company enter into competition with us. Within the present week an improvement has been made at onr works which will forever secure to this city the oredit of possess ing a (ight unsurpassed throughout the globe. Through the same agency we will hereafter be able to correct, in a few minutes, deflciencies in the power of ths light we furnish occasioned by oold weather or from other causes. We do not propose to lose a consumer on account of price. Should another company commence to sell gas at a price lower than the rate- fixed by this company, we will at once reduce our rate to a point fifty cents per thousand cubic feet lower thw thsj amount fixed upon by such other oompany, and will keep descending in the same ratio. We would remind the public that we desire no assurances or guarantees, on the part of our consumers, as we believe that whenever minors come to open competition, the superiority of the light offered by this company, to say nothing of inducements In price, will secure a continuanoe of the patronage it has so long enjoyed. It is made the imperative duty of every officer and employe oi this oompany to pay strict attention te the wants and re quirements of our patrons, and any Uck of courtesy or negleot of complaints will subject the offender to severe rebuke or prompt dismissal from our service.
