Next Wednesday Andy Johnson will address his fellow-citizens of Memphis in behalf of his claims to the office ol tWressman for the State at large. Andy will no doubt reproduce his Nash ville nd Gallatin speeches, with slight variations a mere change of the scale without material departure. The Ara lanche calls him the Great Commoner but why. is not Tery clear. The great disorganizer and demagogue would better fit the character of Sir. Johnson as a de scriptive appellation. Mr. Johnson will "draw" well. Hia checkered career ;n tt met. His talents as a, speaker of that pecular stripe known as the demagogue are well known to Tennesseeans and are fully appreci ated in this State. To-day, the people's man: tomorrow, the blood-thirsty mili tary Governor; next dtj, the President by accident, and the rpudiator of the terms of the Sherman-Johnson surren der, the hangman of Mrs. Snrratt, the would be defpoller and executioner ol the best and mint prominent men in the Sonih; the day after, the defeated Sena torial aspirant and woald-be Conerei- 171 UQ fur tLe Slate at LuXf- Jotioion is the turbulent yjLuaA kaleidoscope with out the titeasicg and attratu re elements f the !.!: unbtiidiiiit Democrat ku aider aid Abettor of EdicaEiim in its worst days of military tyransy.

He itring!y tats for a "little amnesty," and quotes tte trite wordf, "To err is human, to iorgive divine." He yet is the agrarian, lirocUiming the late war between the States to lave t " the rich sum's war ' and the poor man's CgLt," and seeks to stir up an antagonism between the so cial classes by adroitly attempting to pit the private soldier against the general, la bis Gallatin speech he says: "The war was a politician's rebellion, bat the poor soldier's fight. We, the generals, want office, and you most be the slaves upon whose backs 1 will step into the emol uments of office. But if you want offices it is a high piece of presumption; you must not aspire to any position above your rank." Can demagoguery go further? Is there a greater chrovic office seeker in the land than Andrew John on? The Moses, Peter the Hermit, de sires that on his tomb shall be placed the words: "Here lies one who lived and toiled for the people." " What masking stuff is here?" This is disgust ing in the extreme to intelligent minds that cannot but recollect the stanza: ' Hope fontny in wind, or corn in chaff. Believe a Jobrimu) or an epitaph." The political discussion at Covington, Tipton county, lost Monday, between Landon C. Haynes, Conservative nomi nee for Congress in this District, and A. J. Kellar, independent candidate for the same office, resulted, as was expected, in the overwhelming defeat of the latter. The oratory, breadth of thought, politi cal learning and unqualified Liberalism of Mr. Haynes were fatal to the aspira tions of his opponent. Mr. Kellar labored in a sick cause, the Liberalism of Mr. Haynes being broader and more in ac cordance with the Greeley platform than that enunciated by the independent can didate. We dislike to speculate upon Mr. Kellar's chances of suc cess, knowing them to be vision ary in the extreme. Mr. Kellar ia a good lawyer, an enterprising newspaper editor, a good citizen and an agreeable companion. He has come out for office at the wrong time and will be badly de feated. He will be beaten even by that great and nnselGsh patriot, Judge Bar bour Lewis, the Radical nominee for Congress of the negro party. Even should JuL:e Lewis retire in favor of Mr. Kellar, his success woulJ not be the result. Tb; is a rnsr fipht between A .1. indopendont stand between two fires in a most dangerous and unenviable posi tion. The masterly speech delivered by Mr. Haynes at Covington took the wind out of the sails of Mr. Kellar, whose best friend nnw believe he outfit to withdraw from the fight in favor of the Conserve tive nominee. Will he do it? :;' VELI17 TOR TBI SOUTH." To set rid of the frightful military incubus now in power at Washington and to reDUce it with statesmettBhip n honesty, is the ' great National issue. The New York Day Book, hitherto a mnat nucomDromising Democratic jour nal, yields to the demands fit the South and advises iu Democratic readers as follows: i ' We are overwhelmed by this cry from the South "Anything to beat Greet I Like a man tortured beyond endurance by some fearful suffering who cries out in his agony for relief, for change, for any nostrum whatever that may bring temporary ease, though it peril life itself, the South calls for Horace Greeley, the man above all others whom, lor nearly a quarter of a century, it has regarded as the special embodiment of hostility to Democratic institutions. The Demo cratic party has shown itself incapable of saving the country by itself, and a por tion of our former opponents having be come perfectly satisfied that General Grant's administration, if continued four years longer, must end in military des potism, at the North as well as at the South, it is proposed to join forces and j..f. n,r,t Mr Greelev's nomination, .l.v,,i mAna this. and tbis only trie overthrow of military rule, and reconcil- !oi.-.n North and bOlllU. uen. uraui .,.ttw defeated: his army must be die .nil set to work like other men; the horde of negro staves neanves 10 ine nnlla must be outvoted at the North; o.met-hair thieves must be driven from the South, from the continent, from the civilized earth, and the Union for which half a million of men laid Jn.n ihpir lives roust be restored, urani defeated the eieantic mumbo jumbo'ism that now oppresses the South beaten down and we shall all breathe the air of freedom again, and for tnis one im- nle. direct Durpose, tms terrime, over- -i.elminff necessity now pressing npon na wa must ell do our utmost to elect Horace Greeley, and save our country from utter ruin!

The shell fish known as "sea fruit" has a deadly enemy in the crab the marine rarnet-baEeer. It seems hard that so peaceful a denizen of the deep should not be allowed to rest in peace and enjoy iu ease with dignity, while back ing beneath its own marine vine and fig tree. The crab, a wiley and detestable see politician, is in the habit of laying her eggs npon the shelly beds of the un suspecting oyster, that, sue King in iu food, draws along with it the microscepie embryo of the crab, which immediately becomes e tenant in common, and lives thereafter upon the oyster until, like the professional carpet-bagger, U eats him out of house and home. The rightful ten ant pemb.ee, his shell opens, and out walks the crab as bold and self-sat lined - . ... . i s . . i as it ne was nauve were uu w uc manner born. Just now the Richmond paper are publishing editorials on the oyster, a Virginia staple, and ere specu lating opoa its prospect daring the coming season. Douglas Jerrold, after eating an American oyster, said he felt as if b bad swallowed a baby," the English oyster being a pigmy by com parison, itie MullusK, nowever, uvea and multiplies, notwithstanding the ravages of the carpet-baggiag craV, and will live in prose and song when the marine monster, and his political broth- i ertbe Radical carpet-bagger, havej passed from the earth execrated but not j forgotten. It is difficult to find a paragraph in newspapers at present uniese it ia tainted more or less with politics. The following interesting item of news, so far aa we have been able to judge, contains o open or covert political meaning: California Las this season harvested the greatest wheat crop she ever raised, bat, notwithstanding the Pacific railroad, ods much difficulty in moving it. Rail road freights are too high to admit of profitable rernrns to shippers, and there a great scarcity of marine ton nage, nnippers nave paia 4 11. a ton for wheat from San Francisco to Liver pool. There ia also a deficiency of in ternal transportation in California, the existing facilities being altogether inade quate to the moving of the present crop. As a result of tbis condition of affairs the farmers find that it i harder to get rid of their abundant crop than it was to produce tbem." On reading the above article a second time it strike os that there is an adroit and implied attack on the Grant Administration, with refer ence to the failure of the Government to aid in the construction of the South ern Pacific railroad. The wheat crop could be moved over this Southern route. The city of Boston, during the Franco Prussian war, subscribed 800,000 francs for the relief of French distress, and re quested the French Academy to award a 2000 franc prize for " patriotic (elf devotion." The Duke de Noaille. in behalf of the Society, has issued an ad dress awarding the prize to the Society of Christian Brothers, who furnished six hundred men, headed by Brother Philip, and also furnished ambulances and gave np their college as hospital. The Brother west in (quad of tea into action, and on the battlefields.of Dijon, Alencon, Pouilly, Pontarlier, etc., dis played the most heroic courage in carry ing off the wounded. During this time their chool were not closed, each Brother teaching one day and going under fire the next. " They stood fire," says the Duke, " a if they Ud done nothing else all their lives. Their disci pline, their zeal and their courage were admirable and conspicuous; hence the award. the champion of conservatism ana iub .t.mnmn nf black radicalism, and the THE SHRIEVALTY CONTEST Chancellor Hor.aai Dlaaelvea she bIubMI. urt Declares Iroyle xnerilt Hatdiaallau As;aia leased. Chancellor Morgan, ( of the First Chancery Court, after hearing the learned and exhaustive argument of counsel in the case of Curry ve. Doyle, injunction eranted by Judge Ray, restraining DoyI from taking possession of the office of Sheriff, delivered his opinion to day. which elaborate and learned opinion we give in full: (i ' ' '' ' ' - ' "ptcmiow."" - - - '-- Currv vs. Doyle: ., , Tbi bill, filed by Curry, admits that there was an election held on the 1st of Augrust. 1872; that the returns snow mat Doyle received a majority of the votes, and that the commissioner of election on Saturday, alter comparing me pons the certificate of election to Doyle The bill alleges that the comparison of polls should haveeen made oa Monday instead of Saturday; that many illegal votes were cast, esany voters deterred from oastine their ballot, and other fr.mla not necessary now to notice. f'urrv as a contesting candidate, nnld he rnmnelled to assert the validity f the election, and to destroy the force of Doyle prima tacie ngni to ne in ducted intoorfice, he would be compelled to attack the return of the commis ainner of election, and show that his returns are not id accord with the re- nf the iudtres of the election Them ia no Drincide better settled in t,i . State than that ths return of the judges of the electien give a prima tacie title tn tne oince: anu mi w urereumc this title there must be positive proof that the early receiving mis unuin im;ic title was not elected. This proof must be made in an action for contesting the elertion. Whether this action can be instituted in this court, or must be tried before another tribunal, is not necessary now to decide. I do not regard the allegation in the bill that Stanley, the Commissioner, is sued the certificate on Saturday instead of Monday as material. Hi certificate has anlv force aid validity as being based npon and consistent with the returns of the judges of the election. And while it might afford a prima facie evidence of the returns, it is not conclusive oi tne The above are the views that this Court took of the case of Curry vs. Wright, and that were affirmed without dissent by the Supreme Court of the State.' These farts aDDearing noon the face nf the bill, warrant the induction of Doyle iato office as sheriff. He ought not to have been restrained unless there are other equities upon the face of the bill that are superior to and override these principles; and so far a Carry as a contestant is concerned, he is not en titled to this injunction. It is, however, insisted that Curry, as present incumbent of the office, is en titled to bold over under the Constitution until his successor is elected and quali fied, and that he has such an interest in the office a to authorize the filing of the bill npon that hypothesia. This position i ingeniou end was presented with ability. Curry, as his own successor, is an in different custodian of the office, made so by the law to serve a temporary con venience. The bill allege that there wa an election, which being true, there -. , n i y, it a successor eitner uoyie or worry himself. As soon a the successful party is ascertained and qualified, then the term of the temporary officer is at an end. The law ha already determined prima facie case in the person ol Dovle. And to make his title good be ba only to be inducted into office. This would have been done but for the inter ferencee of this officer himself, who file the bill to prevent what the law lays shall terminate hia office. This ia not right, and the law does not sanction it The title by which Doyle holds thej office of Sheriff of Shelby county, al though only prima facie title, is as good end valid a a perfect title until it is overcome by a superior one. Tbis i can only be done by positive proof; and i not done in tbis case. The injunc- j tion will be dissolved. " ' I The defendant, standing npon a prima facie title, will not be required to give any bond. - I do not determine the question of jurisdiction in contested election. Possibly daring the progress of the case there may be a necessity for the exercise of the extraordinary powers of this Court; if so, the application can then be made. K. J. Moecan, Chancellor.
