Robert W. Gibbes, M. Professor Hugh
Thompson, W. H. Talley, Esq., F. G. De-
Fontaine, Melvin M. Cohen and James S.

The Cattle Trade.—A letter from
Knoxville, Tennessee, dated the 9th inst
On yesterday, about 7,000 head of cattle
were stopped here for pasturage. These
cattle are from Texas. They were shipped
from Memphis by railroad and are destined
for Alexandria and Baltimore and other
eastern markets. They occupied forty
eight cars in their transit. This lot is hut
the first instalmedt of about 70,000 head
that are on their way to market.
Editors Opinion: While I do not agree in
every particular with all the principles in
culcated in your ably conducted paper, yet,
at the same time, I admire that gentleman
ly courtesy extended to others who may
honestly differ with you upon the issues
now before the country. I am satisfied
that you are not afraid of investigation,
but from time to time are endeavoring,
throughout your editorial colums. to dis
seminate light and truth to the people,
am convinced in my own mind that, had
you have had the framing and construct
ing of the “Sherman Reconstruction Meas
ures,” perhaps, in many particulars, they
might have been different; but, under the
circumstances, your present position in
advocating those measures is but the result
of an honest conviction, on your part, that
their adoption, will ultimately result in
great good to the whole country. For
candor, you deserve credit. How different
with other papers which might he men
tioned. They neither advocate one side or
the other. At one time they oppose <
Convention; at another, advocate the run
ning of candidates for the Convention—
while again they urge the people to sus
tain rather a neutral position. Now, how
in the name of common sense can country
people keep posted on any snbject, when
they read their papers to-day advocating
one set of principles; when in three days
more the very same paper goes quite a dif
ferent way? All of which is the result of
being governed and controlled by certain
outside influences, or men. who pull the
wires and conceive to themselves that they
have the right to gag every press and put
the impress of infamy upon every man who
does not agree with them.
Mr. Editor, I cannot refrain from ex
pressing my entire approbation of every
word and sentiment contained in that ably
written article which appeared in your
paper this morning, over the signature of
“Icabod.” lie but expressed the views and
feelings of nine-tenths of the people of At
lanta in reference to the matter of which
he speaks. It is the whole truth and noth
ing hut the truth; and should attempts he
made to upset the facts which called forth
that article, there is much more connected
with that “ Executive ” arrangement, rath
er of a political family nature which doubt
less will be brought out to the light of
heaven—to the open gaze of all men, that
will, I think, show that there are some se
cret leagues existing in Atlanta besides
Union Leagues. I am opposed to three or
four men dictating to a whole community;
more especially when they c.dtou a*rr.*e

American Catholic Ladies Call on
the Poke.—On Thursday, the 5th instant.
Madam Mealier, and three other Catholic
ladies from the United States, had an audi
ence with his Holiness for the purpose ol
presenting a banner worked by themselves
and destined for tho corps of Pontifical
Zouaves. The idea was originated at the
time of the canonization and centenary
solemnities by the Catholic American la
dies who were in Rome at that period; hut
as most of them left the city imniediately
after those festivities, the execution and
presentation of the work were entrusted
to four ladies who remained here for that
purpose, braving alike the danger of chol
era and the heat of a Roman summer. Be
sides the flag, which was richly embroid
ered in gold, the following address, written
in French, and signed by all the ladies who
had contributed to the work, with a speci
fication of the State to which each ha-
longed, was presented to the Pope:
Most Holy Father: We the undersigned,
American Catholics of the United mate*,
having come to Rome to enjoy the splendid
triumph of our faith in the memorable fes
tivities of the centenary of St. Peter, and
being desirous of leaving a souvenir of
such happy days, which wcshall never for
get, have sought under what form our of
fering might prove most acceptable to tha
magnanimous heart of the august Pontiff,
who in such eventful times guides with
suavity and firmness the bark of Peter.—
We see your Holiness surrounded bv dan
gers anu trials hut supjiorted and protect
ed hy intrepid defenders among wii. ro
hold the first place those new crusaders
the elect of all Catholic nations, whose he
roism is admired and applauded hy the
whole w'orld. Allowing, most blessed Fa
ther, that the tribute of our profound an !
filial veneration may pass into tlieir hands
we offer you a banner, the emblem of the
ardent vows formed by our hearts that
the entwining devotion of your Zouave*
may become, in every •neonnter. the -aie-
gu:ird of the Pontifical throne. May they,
faithful to their mission, reproent worthi
ly the hearts of all vour children, who
would esteem themselves fortunate to
watch over and devote themselves inces
santly to your sacred person I Prostrate at
your feet.’ O reverent! Father, wi- Implore
