month of November has only four Thurs
days, the Thanksgiving Days In all the
Northern and Middle States will this year
fall ou the same day. The fourth Thurs
day is the appointed day In some States,
while the last Thursday is the day In other
States; hence, when November has, five
Thursdays, tbe observance is not uniform.

eight years become a national holiday.
A Lib Out Who Told It? The day
after the election the Journal vent off In
its usual half-cocked style, charging Fitz
Rankin with "leading a mob" to beat Dr.
Coulter.'. Mr. Rankin Indignantly denied
the charge, saying that the row bad com
menced before he came up. , The Journal
published Mr. Rankin's note, but, In intro
ducing It, in effect called htm a liar. . On
Saturday that sheet published a long arti
cle from Dr. Coulter, in which Fitz Ran
kin's name is not mentioned, although the
truth-telling Journal bad previously said
that Dr. Coulter saw and recognized Mr
Rankin. Now, the question that agitates
the American public is, Who told tbe lie?

Captured. Charley Pugh, charged with
shooting Henry Schreiner on Friday eve
ning was caught by Lieutenant Hanna and
officer Kile on Saturday morning toout 9
o'clock in the woods, in Truro township,
and was at once brought to the city 'and
placed In confinement. The fellow told
the officers that while lying In ambush he
had an opportunity to shoot them, and had
a notion to do It, but thought, there might
be too many of them and they would shoot "
him first. , Davis, who is a party to, if not
the instigator of the crime, has not yet
been captured, although the polioe are still
in pursuit of him.
We saw Charley Pugh in the calaboose
last night. His story is that Asa and Bang
Davis and himself went Into Schreiner's
saloon and called tor drink. After some
talk, Schreiner refused to give them any.
Asa Davis -Chen commenced - abusing
Schreiner, calling him many opproblous
names. .They were ordered to leave the'
place, and not paying any attention to tbe
order, Mr. Schreiner went behind the bar
and got a hatchet, with which he made a
blow at Davis. . He then turned on Pugh
to drive him out, when Pugh drew a pistol
and 6hot him, as before reported. Pugh
proteoses to ' be very contrite, and says he
don't know what devil incited him to com
mit the act.
" Vagged. Seymore Goddard, a rathrr
dilapidated . looking man, the crown of
whose hat goes flipplty flap, and whose
boots don't hide bis toes, was arrested on
Friday night on a charge of vagrancy. He
said be "hadn't done nuthln'." The Mayor
seemed ;to think that that was just the
matter with him. In order that he might
have an opportunity to do something, he
was fined $5 and costs and sent to the stone
pile, where labor is provided for all. He

meeting' of the Independent' Sherman
Guards at their armory this evening at 7)4

that every member will be present.
Theater. We were glad to see so large
an audience at the theater on Satur
day night. Tbe company under the man
ageraent of Mr. Lanergan Is nightly grow
ing in favor. It Is a good one, and every
play thus tar produced has given the high'
est satisfaction. Mr. Lanergan's Don
Caesar was a masterly rendition. It was
natural bit ot acting, and won the hearty
plaudits of tbe audience. To-night we are
to have that gem of a comedy, Still Waters
Run Deep, one of the best of modern com
edies. We should judge that Mr. Laner
gan will make tbe best John Mildmay we
have ever bad here. Not having seen' the
programme, we do not know who Is cast
for Captain Hawkley, but are satisfied
It will be in good hands. The petite com

completes what we should call a mosc ex
Fal8r Alarm Tearing Down Tele
graph Wire. The entire Fire Department
was called out last night by a false alarm,
caused by tearing the wire ot the fire alarm

which It passes. The Gay street engine
was sent out to the Infirmary, tbe Third
street engine to the Lunatic Asylum, and
he South engine in another direction
Every time the wire is broken an alarm is
riven, and this, of course, calls out the De
partment. Measures have been taken to
remove the objectionable noise made by the
vire, and it was expected that the coming
week would make the line satisfactory to
the people on whose houses it is fastened.

MEMPHIS, Oct. 17.
The destruction of arms on board the
steamer Hesper, still caused much excite
ment, lhe Democratic papers assert they
were destroyed by Bad teals for tbe Durrxiae
ot making political capital ; that Captain
nuusron, oi toe riesper, loaned his ooat at
Hark Grades for that purpose: also, that
the arms were not the prooertv of the State
ot Arkansas. The Republican papers, on
the other band, assert that they were de
stroyed by the Ku Klux.
The tallowing particulars of the seizure
are obtained from Capt. John Ford, of the
impressed tujr Nettie Jones: About Ave
o'clock Thursday afternoon the tiio- Netrin

half past five o'clock. No one was in sijsht,
but the line had scarcely been made last

so securely ma-ked as to be unrecognizable.

had evidently been concealed for some
time under the bluff. Without speakinc a
word, they quickly boarded the tuff, took
possession ol the pilot bouse and engine
room, and ordered Capt. Ford to immedi
ately start down the river, addinp-. bv wav
of incentive to promptness, that somebody
might be hurt in event of refusal. Ac
cordingly he ordered one of the crew to
cast off the line, and in a few minutes the
tug was rapidly steaminar down the river
Upon taking possession, the new com
mander kept a vigilant eye on the crew,
not allowing any one of them to leave his
post for even a moment. The Engineer
was not permitted to oil his machiuerv. the
mysterious passengers evidently feariDg he

head of the tun was held steadily down the
river until approaching Cat Island, 25 miles
below, near Arkansas Short. This was be
tween 7 30 and 8 o'clock, and Captain Ford

little steamer Hesper, which was tied up

the party informed Captain Ford they in
tended overhauling the Hesper and des-
-troymg awns, but that strict orders had
been issued to tbe men to harm no one and
respect all other property. In obedience
to orders, Captain Ford ran the tug along
side. This was no sooner accomplished
than, leaving two of tbe number . in the
pilot house, two in the engine room, and
one in the cabin, as a guard, the latter over
one of the crew who had insulted tbe lead
er, the -. veiled party suddenly sprung
aboard the Hesper. Little or nothing was
said, and the boarders, who, evidently had
an eye to business, placed the crew under
surveillance and commenced the work in
The gun boxes were broken open with
axes and hatchets, the guns taken out and
thrown into the river; many were broken
before being consigned to the element. A
large quantity of ammunition iii the hold,
marked sundries, was also thrown over
board. The boxes were shoved overboard
after tbem, and many of them were seen by
passengers ou tbe May Flower, fluatiun
with the current. In half an hour the task
was accomplished and the party returned
to the tug, leaving the Hesper adrift in pos
session of all the crew, who remained, Cap
tain Houston and his brother having made

seen bearing down upon their craft. The

was required to turn the boat northward.

JNo sooner had this been done than some
one, until that moment invisible on tbe isl

skill put out from shore, and was rowed
alongside. Whether the person in it was
black or white could not be ascertained, as
