Now that the election is over, anu, a
far as we know, everybody is io a pretty
good bamor, it may not be amias to
suggest that it becomes a matter of im
portance that Rood men sbonld be placed
in all the positions to be filled for the
next two years. The applicants for the
various places should be men well known
for their honesty, integrity and capacity.
To maka an administration effective it
should be well sustained, and we hope
this will be done. To carry oat the idea
of the tax-payer's movement will re
quire the selection of competent oScials,
who, if property-owners, should have
a ood record ia every respect, not only
as tax payers but as citizens of the
highest merit and capacity. We are all
interested alike ia having a good city
government, and should stand ' together
in the support of wise measures and
competent officials. The powers and
duties of the municipal administration
are well defined and limited, but within
that limit there is considerable discre
tionary power which should .be carefully
watched and exercised. The people wil
expect a great deal of this administra-
f tion, . for it has a fine opportunity and
much has been promised, perhaps more
' than can be carried out to the letter.
We hope to see men nominated and
elected to the places about the City
Hall who will command the respect
and the moral support of the solid and
intelligent people of Memphis irrespect
ive of party or former differences of
opinion. We are all in the same boat,
and should unite in the support of what
ever will promote the common good.
Public officers are public servants, and
do not own the places they are called to
fill, and have no rights except what they
acquire by a faithful and impartial per
formance of their duties. Hoping that
this will be done by all who hold office in
Memphis for the next two years, we de
sire to find much in their conduct to com
mend and support, and to be
able to record the fact that Memphis
has made great progress in material
prosperity ia every Hoe of business and
in all that gess to make us proud of
Memphis as the commercial metropolis
of three States and a delightful place of
residence. To this end let us all labor,
adopting the methods that may seem
most acceptable to the permanent resi
dents and thinking people who are moBt
interested, and therefore should be the
best judges. ' If we would win in the
race for commercial supremacy ia the
rich district of which Memphis is natu
rally the center aDd entrepot, we must
look to the future add leave the past to
take care of itself.
THE LATE SAMUEL BOWLES.
The death of this distinguished editor
and politician, which occurred at Spring
field, Mass., on the lGth irist., has been
merely mentioned in our telegraphic dis
patches. The Nashville American, ol
yesterday, pays him the following hand
some and merited tribute:
In the death of Mr. Bowie, the coun
try lost an able, bold journalist, of inde
pendent thought one of those who does
not wander away from the Path of Dro
yreas society is fallowing, and yet does
not walk along in the center of the mov
ing column, or lag behind it. He did
not follow off into the morasses every
will o'-the-w?n of fancied good, nor ret
fail to seek the paths he thought society
ought and might be induced to follow.
Ths practical and successful journalist
does not seek every good a lively
lancy may depict, or a vivid imag
ination conceive. He as a worker
close up to the head of the advancing
columns ot progress, ana it is as much
his duty to know what path society can
he made to follow as tbe one it ought to
, follow. It is his business to find out both
what can and ought to be done. This
rule would exclude himirom tbe con
scious Advocacy of that which is either
wrong or impracticable. The one who
comrs nearest that line will prove the
most successful iu tbe long run.
Mr. Bowles illustrated it and won hon
or io a lifetime of journalistic labors,
and money as well as bonor. He early
dissented from the policy of his party,
while he never forsook its senks. Its
corruptions and its oppressions were not
in consonance with bis views, and he
protested and clamored for a better pol
icy, and sought it even outride of bis
party ia the Liberal movement.
He was born in 1826. His father was
proprietor of the Springfield Republican,
in whose office he was an apprentice at
iin early age. Ia 1844 he induced bis
futher to publish a daily newspaper, of
which be became editor at tbe age c)
eighteen. He is therefore one of the few
instances of a newspaper deeceodiug
from father to son, and runuing prosper
ously ia the same family for many years.
6ucb cases are not extremely rare, but
jure enough for comment. Mr Bowles
ha made several journers to tha West,
and has gained some celebrity as a de
scriptive correspondent by letters, which
were published io his paper in 1865, and
afterwards in book form under the title
"Across the Continent." Ia 1869 he pub
lished "Our New West" and "The Switi
erlaud of America," the latter describing;
Colorado. He has been chiefly famous,
however, as a journalist, and especially
in the conservative political influences of
his paper, the Springfield Republican.
Wi uuderstand that Mr. Flippin, when
serenaded over Harvey Robinson's at
committee headquarters Thursday night,
made some very sneering and uncalled
for remarks about the Ledgkb in return,
we suppose, for the courtesy we have
shown him in this canvass and the sup
port we tendered byn in former elections
before he became so great that he had no
nse for the Democratic press. He ev6u
went so far, we are informed, as to say
that the Ledgir and Appeal had been
consigned to the dead-house and would
never be heard of again. The intoxi
cating joy of the hour must have turned
his head. If newspapers had to depend
upon office-holders or office seekers for
existence Memphis would not even
have a weekly paper. The Lkuukk has
recorded the coming and the going and
the rise and fall of many and many a
great man, and will probably continue to
do so until the year 1878 will be referred
to as the long ago. Som9 of them have
gone toElmwood, but many have retired
to the deepest shades of private life.never
more to take a part or wield an influence
in public affairs The great men of to
day may sink into merited insignificance
to morrow, but they will not carry down
any newspapers with them.

of Mr. Matthews, and contended that the
restoration of the silver dollar would not
prevent or retard the funding of the pub

no donbt that our debt could be funded
at four per cent. The object of remone
tizing the silver dollar was not to furnish
money to pay tba public debt alone
Tbe main purpose was to arrest the
movement inaugurated in Europe
to take silver from the coinage of
the nations, to check the advance
in the value of gold, to cheapen
money in this change, and enable tbe
people to pay their debt. He quoted
from a recent work of Dr. Linderman,

His Oplaloa ef General Harner
tha Veteran Appeared Many
The St Louis Globe-Democrat says:
Mr. L. U. Reavis, of tbis city, is en
gaged in collecting material for a life of
General Harney. He has just received
the following letter from Jefferson Davis,
late of the C. S. A.:
Mississippi Cut, Miss, January,
1878 Sir: - It nives me pleasure to com
ply with your request of the 30th ult,
lor some reminiscences in connection
with my old friend. Gen. W. S.' Harney
Ia tbe spring of 1829 I reported as a
brevet second lieutenant to the com
mandine officer at Fort Winnebago.
General Harney was then stationed at
that post, and captain of company E,
First United States infantry. At that
period of his life he was, physically, the
finest specimen ot a man 1 ever saw,
Tall, straight, muscular, broad-chested
and gaunt waisted, he was one of tbe
class which lraiawney describes as
"nature's noblemen," against whom the
plague in the East "nesr made an at
tack." Had he lived in the time of
Homer he would have robbed Achilles of
his soubriquet of the "swift-footed,," for
he would run faster than a white man,
further than an Indian, and in both
showed that man was organized to be
master of the beast. To elucidate the
last clause of the preceding paragraph
requires the recital of an anecdote.
Captain Harney carefully attended to
his company garden, wbieh on tbe fron
tier was necessary for the comfort as
well as the health of the men. 1 be beds
had been carefully spaded and raked,
when one ot his numerous dogs a half
crown mongrel hound came walking
across the carefully prepared ground,
and the captain, storming at him in tones
arid in language not suited to tbe pulpit,
frightened the dog so that instead of go
ing out by tbe walk, be ran across the
bed toward the trip in the fence. Tbe
captain started in full run after the dog,
which had to jump on the fence and
then off it fatal disparity to the dog, for
the captain cleared the fence at a bound,
which brought him a jump nearer to tba
dog and then began an even ruu op
the long slope which led to the fort, be
fore reaching which Harney mastered
the dog, and " Rosa" suffered in propor
tisn to the length of the chase. Captain
Harney was also a bold horseman, fond
of the chase, a good boatman and skill
ful ia tbe use of the spear as a fisher
man. Neither drinking nor gaming, be
was clear of those rocks and shoals of
life in a frontier garrison, and is no doubt
indebted to tbis abstinence for much of
the vigor ha has possessed to his present
advanced age. By long service ou tbe
Indian frontier, together with that prac
tical sense wbich tests all theory by
actual observation, he had acquired that
knewledge of Indian character which
was often conspicuously exhibited in his
military career. Of the incidents thus
generally referred to, you have so many
Other sources of information that it
would be needless for me tc enter into
detail, but I should do injustice to tht
subject of this letter it 1 did note
yeur attention to the project of a trea
he made with the 8ioux in 1855 or '5b.
I think it constituted the best basis for
an arrangement between the United
States government and an Indian tribe
that has ever been devised, and if carried
out would impress the Indians with tbeir
responsibility, and bind them to a more
faithful observance of it than ever did
any of those verbose, miscalled treaties
which are to be found spread over the
records of the United States Yours
respectfully, Jefferson Davis.

Washington Special to Yesterday's Cincinnati
