In his interview with an Appcal re

The Memphis 'Cycle Club met Irst
night at 7:30 o'clock to elect oflioeis
for the ensuing year. W. L. Surprise
was elected preeidett, S.Wade llamr
ton, jr., secretary and treasurer, C.
J. Bheror captain, and f. M. Mai-,
lulieu first lieutenant. This closes the
first yiar of an orgno xition which
was started in the lue of di Hi cutties
which would have frightened a body
of young men less enthusiastic and
less determined than they were. At
that time a law against bicycling-on
the streets had. paseed one reading,
and so great was the pressure that a
small party of young men who had
attempted to introduce the sport and
had bought fine wheels, disbanded in
digguet. But, satisfied themselves that
the courts would not prohibit a otiin
f om riding on two or three wheels if
be preferred them to four, the new
club lost do time In convincing the
city officiii's of that fact, and
boldly mounting their ateel steeds
wheeled through the principal
ftretti and along the leading drives
without opposition. A strong local
prejudice which existed was alsa re
moved, and, for the purpose of edu
cating the Memphis public in bicyc
ling, six of the finest riders in the
world were brought to Memphis and
gave an exhibition in the Exposition
Building. Thousands went to see
them and the last night the club and
the riders were given a grand ovation.
The club in the spring incraased to
nea-ly twenty members, leased a
piece of ground, bniit a quarter-mile
race-track and established Cycle Club
Park. This wai prelimit ary to a
grand rase meeting, the first ever
given in the b'outh.. Many of the bett
men in the city became honorary
members, and a'ded the club
in its effort, which waTa brilliant
success. Gold and silver prizss and
purses amounting to $1000 were given,
and amateur and piofessional riders
from all over the country competed.
In one race six States were repre
sented. The grand -stand was graced
daily daring the three ditys of the
races with the grace and beauty of the
city, but the sport wss new and the
crowd was not large enough. The
club has since, however, entirely re
covered fiom the severe blow dealt at
its finances, and starts the new year
with a clean sheet. It is hoped that
those who stcol by it before will con
tinue to do i o, and that the Memphis
'Cycle Club, like everything else that
Memphis does, will Ital the van.

The firtt of tha new series of revival

ices were conducted by th evan
gelists. Metsrs. Sayford and Towner.

br Mr. Towner and wife, which
was a revelation in church music. Mr.
Towner has a fine tenor voire, full,
rich and of great compass and power,

by several ministers present, Mr. S. M.
Sayford of Boston preached the ser
mon, 'taking his text from the thirty-
second psalm. II argument was log

Sayford is an eloquent speaker, of
great personal magnetism, and was
closely followed by his hearers to the
close. It was the genera I 'y. expressed
opinion of those present tl a', Mr. Say
ford's sermoa win one of the abljet
efforts ever heard from a Memphis
pulpit, and was an Intellectual treat of
the highest order. The result cf the
meeting was seveial conversions. At
the conclusion of the services Mr.
Sayford announced that he would
preach again to-morrow morning at 11
o'clock, alter Bible reading, and again
at night stthe usual hour. Everybody
is invited t attend. No tickttts are
necessary, and it is safe to predict that
the church will be packed to its nt

as a rule, are in bad tatte, but it is
only due to Messrs. Sayfird and

Patrolman Faver yesterday arrested
a repulsively ngly black negro, about
eighteen years old, on information
that he made the recent attempt to
outrage Mrs. Barron, a white woman,
employed as cook by Capt. Collier,
who resides near the corner of Manasees
and Poplar street. The darky gave
his nams as Wm. Nelson, and laid he
worked at Etumett Doyle's butcher
shop, on Bradford street, and
that he lived on Goat Hill, of
which classic locality he was a
nu'ive product. Mrs. Barron was
sent for as soon as Nel'on was
locked up and instantly identified
him. The recognition was instan
taneous and Mrs. Ban on will have no
hesitation in testifying to the scoun
drel's identity on the stand. He an
swers the description of the fiend who
has made a number of anaults of a
similar nature in the same locality,
and it is very likely that several young
women will be summoned ti appear
in the police court this morning to
tettify against him.

ctepped up to Vicchelteand addressed
him. He was a', once arrested, and
talked volubly In English at first. He
was asked what he did with the letter,
and said he lost it. He claimed
that the man to whom it
was addressed was bis brother, but
Urigler denied it. He afterward de
nied all knowledge ot the letter, and

registry clerk, aiid that Viccbelle
caned for the letter, and when asked
to identify himself said he knew do
one here, but had the letter written to

letter had been sent. This
was identification sufficient, and
the registered letter was given him.

MAX PATTERSON STUIKES SEW

In the I'nltet) Mates ('onrt-Room A
Proceeding fur Contempt
A little btt jre row yetterday, as
the I nitfu ates Uourt was about to
adjourn for the noon rerear, Mr. Mai
colra H. Patterson, son of Iht Hon. Jo
aiah Patterson, looked in at the door,
aud, walking ta?k, took a seat in the
United Mites Marshal's cilice. The
recess wa anrounced, Judge Ham
mond was in the act of itpping down
from the bench, the jury 1 al risen to
their feet, the lawyers were in the act
of gathering up their, papers, and Mr.
Newman Krb, sitting at a table inside
of the Sr, was making a memoran
dum. Mr. Patterson stepped quickly
up to him, denounced him aa a con
temptible scoundrel, at the same time
giving him a souading slap in the
ftce. Mr. Erb instantly rose to-his
feet and drew back to strike, but be
fore he was able to deliver, Mr. Pat
terson struck him terrific blow with
his fiat in the side of the face. He
.staggered back against the table, and
at this moment the United States mar
shal, Gen. Luke Wright and others
intetfered and prevented the combat
ants from again getting in arms reach
of a:h other. Mr. Patterson was after
wards released and left the Custon
House. Mr. Erb followed shortly
afterward. Judge Hammond ordered
la th matter of Malcolm R. Patterson for
alleged contempt of court.
It coming to the knowledge cf one of
the judges of this court, by his per
sonal observation aud otherwise, that
immediately upon the taking tf the
noon recess of this court ou Tuesday,
February 9, ISSd, Malcolm It. Patter
son, a cit r.-m of Shelby county, Ten
nessee, committed an atsault bv itrik
ing in the ftce, upon Newman Erb, in
the court-room ol this court and at the
bar thereof, the said Erb being then
and there engaged ai an attorney for
one cf the paities in a suit, the trial of
which was in progress at the time of
taking the said recess; it is therefore
ordered thtt the said Malct Itn K. Pat
terson pp:ar before this couit on
Wednesday, February 10, 18S(i, at 10
o'clock a.m., at the court-room in the
city rf Memph's, then and there to
show cause, it any he cua, why he
should net be punished for a contempt
of the court. It is further ordered
that the marshal serve a topy of this
order upon s.tid Patterson, and that
the Dibtrict At'ornoy appear and
prosecute this proceeding in behalf of
the United States.
The di!li':ulty grew out of a reply
by Mr. Erb in yeeterdav's A pi-sal, to
certain statements reflecting uton
him, made in Sun day's issue by the
Hon. Josiah Patterson. Mr. Erb was
formerly receiver, and afterwards
attorney for the Memphis, Birming
ham and Atlantic railroad and
at the same time a'torney for
the Kansas City, Springfield and
Memphis road. When the latter
concluded to go on to Birming
ham, however, he withdraw ffni
the Brunswick road, Gs.nl; and Pat
terson succeeding bim as its attorneys.
The suit of the Guarantee Trust and
Safe Deposit Company for n receiver,
the application of both lines to the
Legislature for right of way, and some
suit at Oxford, brought Mr. Eib into
some prominence and created consid
erable feeling, of which the dilllcully
yesterday was the outcome.
Mr. Patterson, as will be seen frem
the order, will have to appear before
Judge Hammond a', 10 o'clock this
morning, in spits of the fact that the
assault was matte during a recess of
court. The ground upon which the
Custom-IIouse stands is exclusively
the property and entirely under the
donvnion of the national government.
The local or State governments have
no power there whatever. This re
calls the interesting fact that any of
fense commit ed, larceny, a breach of
the peace, gambling any of the
crimes or iniBdemearors in the long
list must be tried before the United
States Court. The United Slates
adopts the laws ot the States in which
its property is located, but felons sen
tenced must serve their time at Ches
ter, 111., in the government prison,and
not or the Taxing Distrht chain-gang
or rock-pil". Fines are of course im
posed in the judgment of the court.

of D. Appleton it Co., with a hand
some full page supplement presenting
the portraits of the founder, Daniel
Appleton and his four sons. It seems
that when Lotkair was about to be
Enblished the members of the firm
eld quite an animated discussion
among themselves to decide whether
to print an edition of 1000 or 2000;
some of them donbting whether even
a thousand copied could be sold. It
wai finally agreed to venture with
L'lXJO. Wha', was their astonishment
when orders came pouring in, which
in the aggregate called for 80,000
copies! DiBtasll wss greatly pleased
with this success, and sent the Apple
tins a gracious letter of thanks for
their efforts in bringing the hook be
fore the American public. The story
of the Muhlbsch novels is yet more
interesting. These had been offered
to neatly every publisher in New
York, including the Apple-tons, and
re fused. A few yt are since, Mr. W.W.
Appleton, a son of Wm. II. Appleton,
while traveling in the south, one day
purchased as curiotity because
wretchedly printed on straw paper a
book published at Atlanta. Ga., during
the war. It was Jottjih lite Stcoiul and
Hit Court. On reading it be was struck
by its elements of popularity, and de
cided that bis house ought to publish
it. It proved one of the great literary
successes of tbetime, and aat followed
by a long series by the same author.
Fokd, Howard & Hitlhkrt of New
York have just issued the second part
cf the series of sermons bj Henry
Ward Beecher on "Evolution and Re

pamphlet conveys ail that a general
description ran of its contents. All
readers of Part I., in which Mr.
Beecher treala of the bearings of the
evolutionary philorophy on the funda

he believes that the development

elaboration of the universe is the one

directions in which Mr. Becn-her
suugects the usefulness and hope

The fact that he does find a vital con
nection between the two, and a posi

whit he calls the ''executive doctrines"
tf Christian theology, as reasonably
interpreted such aa the inspiration of
the Bible, the sinfulness cf man, re
generation, divine providence and de
sign, etc. in the new natural argu
ment, will give confidence to those
who do not wish to "abandon religion
for philosophy," and who yet have
been troubled by a shaking ol the old
foundations, by a fear that cherished
and helpful beliefs were in danger
ftotn the modern destructive criticism
arising out of new discoveries and new
n-arahaiiiis of facts which will not
confirm to the ancient lines of view.

which he did, and continued in charge
of the same, moving from place to
place ui a question of safety arose. I
met Mr. Bioarn frequently during the
war and for the last time at Augusta,
Ga , on the '-'('.th and 27th of April,
185. He told ms then that he was
stayiifg at Athens, lilt 'e town up in
the interior ct Georgls, and had there
all the funds of the mother bank and
branches, with a guard of six or eight
disabled soldiers. There were with
him in Augusta three or four officer

understanding from Mr. Brown was
that he was the only one specially

the first time 1 met him, a year or two
after the war, that he firtt took the
hank to Augusta and reported to the
Federal general commanding there,
who ordered him to tike the funds to
Nashville and report to Gov. Brown

I do not wish to detract any honors
from Senator Harris or Col. Torbett,

it justly belongs. And I think Mr.
Brown deserves much more from the
people of the State than he has ever
received, taking such risk as he did,
et lying there in that litlls town, in
the hills of Georgia witl all that gold,
and it known to so many. Not a man
in the army was in more danger of
losing his life thai Mr. Brown. While
many others were leaving the country,
and thousands more would have left
