The royelty ot now-obslrncted

were presented with yesterday, o J t

impoaeible, thus making walk

tboee whnee daily occnra'.ions

cls dashed tbioagh the ttreets in Ral
laat style, to the merry jingle cf bells
attached to their horses' ot bars. The
g) ort was enlivened by a fusillade of
BuowbnlU ' that Rree ed every,
thing on runners that pased
through the populous ttreets, un
less there waa lady a hoard ; that
always insured protection from
bombardment, but woe to tbe poor
rrusculine who went out unaccom
panied by one of the fair sex. There
waa no mercy for them, and the snow
balls came thick and fast and with an
accuracy tbat was inspiring. It is a
pity tbaf, this custom t f pelting men
in bupgies and slt'ighs unaccompanied
by ladies cannot be kept up alter the
snow is melted. It would work ad
mirably. The mails were also seriously inter
fered with by tbe euow blockade out
side of the city. The Louisville and
Nashville mail train due yesterday at
5 o'clook p.m. waa not in at midnight,
but expected at 3 o'clock this morn
ing. Tho mail dde by the same route
at 6:30 o'clock p m. yesterday waa
looked for to arrive this morning at 6
o'clock. No mail baa boen received
via the Chssapeake and Ohio
road ainoe 3 o'clock p.m. Tues
day, none was sent oat yesterday
in fact all mails out were delayed
twelve bourn. Five trains are report
ed blockaded at Newberc, Tenn. No
mail was received via the Kansas Otty
road yetterday, nor from Somerville
via accommodation train. Tbe Little
Rock mail was delayed a few hours.
All Southern mails were in on time.
Iuto'ton circles scarcely auy busi
ness waa transacted, enles of 450 bale
being the nt result of the day's
transacutne. Factors aid brokers
set med disinclined to leave the com
foittble and steam-heated atmosphere
of the Exchange, and hung around
the black-boards speculating apo.i the
coutseof the market and selling and
buying "futures" in ten-bale hte. On
Front street there was little if any
bnsintss trnnpacted. The river front
was completely deserted, and the
elope leading down to itasheitof
unbroken snow, dotted here and there
with the footsteps of some adventur-
us reporter in search of news.
Main btreet was lively enough and tbe
fair sex were out in respectable num
bers, tbeir roay cheeks and spaikling
eyes attesting the bracing qaalit es of
tbe wintry air and the hcultbful
effect of t'amping on the crisp
and frcisn snow. Many of them
set med to enjoy the exercice
and lii'jghod , joyously under,
tbe exhilarating influence of the scene, '
Snowballing of pedettrmns was rare
and only between very close friends
and email bo; s. The latter fraternity,
as ububI, bal a nicnic, and thry
worked the snap for all it was woith
on the bark ttrtnti out ol range of the
police. Woe to the well dressed n un
who ventured into their stronghold.
If be escaped with but one
well directed miesile clinging
to his cent ollir and trickling in icy
streams down his backbone, he bore a
charmed life. Overcoat were in creat
demand, and "my nephew wears go
loshes" was passed from mouth lo
month and became a popular by-wonl.
Towa'd morning the weather was
reported moderating, and a slowly ris
ing temperature is bmletined by the
Aimse concluded her engagement
bere last night to an exceptionally
good house, tbe weather and other ob
stacles to travel being considered.
Mr. Koland Reed will arrive this
morning and finish the week with
Humbug Thursday. Friday and Satur
day matinee and CAmx Saturday night
Humbug has made a great hit every
where from New York to Texts. Tbe
Galveetua Newt, in speaking of its re
cent presentation there, says: "Tbe
play is a curious medlay of ridiculous
situations and amtiing perplexities,
absolutely overflowing with unex
pected denouements, with just a touch
cf drollery here and there t) render
it irresistible. Tbe interest of the
audience is not allowed to lag for a
moment, and so cleverly is tbe plot
arrangod tbat eager expeitincy it,
the prevailing sentiment. For fun
of a rollicking and over
whelming character the play
of Humbug is decidedly entitled to be
placed on the list. The play is from
the pen of Fred Marsden and has rap
idly gained favor and appreciation
fio'U its first presentation. Though
differing in plot from the general
character of Chetk, it is not difficult to
pirceive thai tbe peculiar geuius o!
Kiland Kced empbatiailly aeterfe it
self in this as ia tbe rtlier role. His
faculties are keenly alive to the neces
sity of drawing tbe beet of everything
to the surface, aod in tbe character of
Jack Luster la Humbug he presents a
character requiring much ingenuity
and cunning to fully sustain. It is
needleps to say that he is not lacking
in any of these essential features char
acteristic of a play of this class.

don one great writer stat d that the
play might pnnaibly live out one or

reif irmance it is almost needless to
refer. Three weeks ago Merry Min

and, as stated at the time, met witti an

Th 'ildirntt Itixnl is the title of a

Club of Louisville, Ky. It is, a we
learn from the CottriifJournal, from
the pun cf Thomas S,ed, who was
binder and publisher of the papers of
the old political club which o rnpv so
corisuicuou" a place in sinter's teeei t
lliUnyof Kentucky. lie is a descend
ant in tie third degree from cmpicn
ous pioueers who rume fmm Virginia
through the UututMrarj1 Hap to Ken
tucky as early u 1782, n id has htii'd
at the family fireside the tin litions of
the early routes of immigration aVitit
which bis monograph is written. The
reader may prwwibly wonder at first
why the old wilderness road from Vir
ginia to Kentucky through the Cum
bet land Gap should give name to a
book on the wave by which the pio
neers came ti this Slat when there
was tbe Ohio liver, with whose current
immigtunta might have floated in their
craft from Pitteburg to any point
a'oug a border of seven hundred miles.
When the bcok ia read, however, this
wonder will pass away, for It will be
learned from it pages that fur mo-e
pioiiHwra 1 a be f o.u Pennsylvania and
Maryland and Virginia arid the Caro
linas along the ttaws through the
mountains than by the river. The
early immigrants preferred to walk or
ride on pack-horses along the cheer
less trace through the Cumberland
Gap to Hotting ou the current ef the
beautiful Ohio; and for the simple
reason that the mountain route' was
the safest and easiest traversed. A
pioneer might cuiily have limited
down the Ohio in his family bnr. if
the Indians had not infeeted the river;
but when it came to going up stream
in his tuds craft he found it easier to
?:o over the mountain read. In one
nstance which Mr. Speed records a
whole church, under the lead of Louis
Craig, their piutor, left Spottsylvania
county, Virginia, in 1781, and passed
over the wilderness road with
singing aud praying and preaohing
until they reached their destination
on Gilbert's creek, in the wilds cf
Kentucky. And there ware instances
in which whole companies cf soldiers
and large caravans of immigrants
came by this route in preference t;
the river, while the families and sin
gle Individuals who made tho same
choice aro without number. That
the pioneers preferred the land to the
water in tbeir routes to Kentucky is
clearly shown in this work. The book
is a mott creditable specimen of print
ing, and does cred.t even lo John P.
Morton A Co. of Loaiavllle, u firm
whose name as printsm has ttiod a
high as the highest for many years.
We commend this work to the atten
tion nf Tennesseans, and respectfully
Hiiitutiit tha, similar monographs in
similar style should be prepared by its
members for the meetings of the Ten-
neu Historical fcooiety.
A PEDDLER'S PACK
Emptied by Farullr of Darkles
Yhlle He Is Intimidated.
The police yesterday arretted
black scamp named Van Smith,
charged with robbing a peddler named
P. Tiaxler on Thursday luat. Tiuxler
went into the cubin of Smith, who
lives on Seglor's firm, in Tipton coun
ty, and at the solicilaUon of Smith's
wife opened bis pack. Two young
bucks came in, helped themselves to
some socks and dopartod. When
Trailer started to follow them the
woman said it ai a'l right, they had
gone alter the money. They 1ml
been gone but a low moments when
Smith walked io, and picking up an ax,
heltl it sunpended over the peddler and
told (he members of hi family to help
themselves. They did not wait for a
second invitation, and in a fdw mo
ments his pack waa nearly empty.
Smith then selected a couple of rar.'s
and a pair of siieponders and told
Trailer to skip. He did not stand ou
the order of hit going but was glad to
get away with his lijfe. The authori
ties of Ti tm were informed and most
of the goods recovered. Smith lied be
fore tho arrival of the 'officers and
came to Memphis. He will betaken
back to Tiptin for trial.

WITH CBOI0.X OIL BT A GANG OF
A Tile aag Ia a Froat Street Dive
and Tbeir Thleriag
"Is that load going very farf asked
a tramp yesterday cf Mr. Bland, the
clerk at Hunt A Bros.' ccal-yard,on
"Why?" was asked.
"I want to get the job of carrying it
in. About the only show we have for
work cow ia following rotl carts about.
I manage to get meat and bread tbat
way. It's bard, bnt I would rather do
it than get my living like the gang
does where I have been staying."
"Where Is that 7"
"At till BakerV, on Front tow.
He keeps a snack bouse, you know,
and lets a fellow sep on tho floir for
a dime. If he has u quarter he'll give
him a brink. Pretty tough place, but
when n feltow has net go, much
money he ha? to s'and thtt kind nf
thinp. There's plen'y iu that fix.
Sometimes as many as twenty are
sleeping on the II or ia Hill's."
"But how Is it they get money T"
"la a way I think tbe po'ice ought
to know something about. There's a
couple cf bard litis kids there well,
they are not so small either, but they
are tough who do their begging for
them. A lot of the gang got some
rroion-oil somewhere and rubbed a
little on ;the boys' arms until it
raised a blister and then sent them
out to beg. It makes an awful ogly
looking pluie, a good deaflike a burn,,
and some days the boys have pretty
good luck. Sometlmea they get as
much as 4 a piece. One of theu came
la with only 90 cents the other day,
thongb, aad they banged tha life
nearly out of him. The gaog vas
afraid r-t heig taken in on the 'vg,'
you know, 10 they sat around and
hngged this stove and sent the boys
out to do tbe brcging."
Mr. Bland to'.d the police of the
tramp's story, and Sergeant Kunbola
and Olllcor Hedrick were- detailed to
work it no. The tramp who was
fiund by Oilleer Hedrick grew silent
as aeon at bs waa approached upon
the subject, though he finally repeat
ed the same ttory in substance. He
said he was afraid lo speak and tell ill
bo knew, aa tbe crowd was a tough
one and might huit blm. To Sergeant
Kunholx, Bill Biker, denied that the
Eractlee waa going on, but said he
eard that tbe lodgers at his bouse
were rubbing something on a boy's
aim a f w days ago, and sent for a
policeman but could not find one.
Chief Dv!s raid he bal been asked
for "money for a bed" by a boy who
displayed a sore arm, ana told him lo
go to the eUtlon-houe. He stopped
to talk to some one, and before he had
gone a block further he met the same
youngster and gave bla a sound talk
ing. He would have arre-tsd him
except that he was bound on other
important business. It Is verv likely
tbat In view of the story published
above, which they believe, t-at the
police will he more rigid in their in
spection of the snack-houses and
other dives along the river frort. A
great deal cannot be done during this
extreme cold weather, but they will
insist that koepers of lodging-houses
shall keep them clean, no matter what
the price asked for beds, tbat too many
ahull not be kept in one to:m, and
that under no circumstances shall so
disgrace ful a thing as the sending out
of other mendicants bv the tramp
lodgers themselves he tolarated.
