Mxmpbii, Sept; 23, 1865.
Dear CK miele: It ia customary, I believe, for
persons to apologise for the non-appearance of any
thing of general interest in tbeir letters, but as I
have no ; control over the event interesting or
otherwise that occur daily, shall have to chronicle
such as come to my knowledge, and may be deemed
interesting. The city is dull , and quiet,; with
nothing; of general interest to attract the atteUion
of a strangnr." Cotton,' and butinest extremely
dun. . . ,?
The military authorities are engage! in arresting
and forwarding to abandoned farm bo the coait,
all unemployed negroes. ;Ten thousand bave been
sent off, under guard, and the soldiers are still
picking, up all that are not employed. for three
months, and placing them in prison preparatory to
shipping them to Florida, Louisiana and Texas.
Cnpt. Monroe, formerly of New Providence, has
opened the Commercial Hotel, in. this city. The
proprieto', Messrs. Mouroe k Wheeler, have bad
this establishment thoruugly renovated and refur
nijhed. and i row open for the reception of gnests,
and for the accommodation of the traveHin public
at large. This Hotel is si'.uated in the Immediate
vicinity of the business portion of Memphis, and
it convenient to (tue steamboat landing. ' i take
pleasure ia'racooitnendihg this Uot( 4o toe travel
ing public, as a. No, 1. establishment, and the pro.
prietors are clever and courteous gentlemen. Give
the Commercial a trial., '. f
I little thought when reading the ridiculous po'
tilion of Don Quixote weea be marched through
Spain with a wash-basin on bis bead, that tucb
was to become the popular fashion among the la
dies of our time, ' but it it really so. You can
scarcely turn a corner but the ' Chinese Bonnet''
or hat meets your eye, and if the material of man
ufacture will only be changed from straw to tin, a
complete wash-basin will be the result. It is hor
rible to tee a beautiful face under such a bead
cover. It 6eems ridiculous that people who bave
derided the customs of the Celestials, should now
ape -the very -worst of their 'gear but tucb is
fashion. And this last Is net more whimsical than
the "waterfall," which is nothing more nor less
than the introduction of the old, derided and
latighfd-out-of;dale cue. At this rate, we will
bave ladies in a few years wearing narrow dresses
with short waits, the Lair done up like a sugar (oaf.

'.I V SOOTBIRX IROOJ A WD UATHSB..;
Irl the earlV part of the War it Wat determined to
become Independent ol Massachusetts In the way
of shoe and leather. Pot tbit pnrpoe a larire
tannery and Shoe Shop was started at Magnolia,
ninety -eight miles from New Orleans, and another
Smaller one at' Hammond's station, aorne thirty
niles below.) Neithei of there was materially in
jured, though necessarily impended, after the fall
or new Orleans aad especially that or Vieksbarg;
Tb New Lynn of America was to be at Magnolia,
and the Lynn of Massachusetts may welt rear its
rivalry now. ' r.i ; i : o' -'
The best leather made In the .United States Is
Southern leather, that of Baltimore, Louisville and
Nashville ranking In the order here mentioned.
The manager of the tanneries ' of the company at
Magnolia ts an experienced NoTth-rn man, and he
is of opinion that the water and other contingencies
at Magnolia favor the making of as good leather as
any where else.' Htdrs ran be procured here as
cheaply as there, and the leather will always' be
Worth asore -for half ventwy to come.- With-4ba
Imnroved machinery fur anakinir shoes rabidly.
which onr Eastern friends employ, the shoes of
Magnolia may soon be made to supersede those of
Massachusetts, unless,, indeed, a fear, that the war
may be renewed in case the South is not made
wholly dependent upon the great woikshop in shoes
ana politics, snould require as a military necesity,
that all Southern people should buy their 4ioes in
Roth these factories will be at work in the course
of two or three months, repair, renewed machinery
and workmen being needed, as well a the reo'rgani
tation of capital. But it may , be expected as a
certainty, that not over three months' will eJapso be
fore ine strong ana serv:ceanio worxmansnip of tne
southern makers will appear S3 the rival of their
northern competitors. Of course, it will be a year
before this titunery can supply them ""with leather,
for this is snore emphatically questrosj of time
than the termination of a war; but it will not be
many years before tire leather of this region, as
well as that of more northern, yet still southern
cities, will take the premium, in your market,
over that of New England, i '...;.
" COTTON AND WOOLEN rACTOBIIS.'' " ' " '
Nor are the people content with independence
for tbeir feet only ; their bodies must have an in
dependent covering. Pot this reason Messrs. Drane
li Co., wh5 had a small experimental cotton factory
in Choctaw county at the outbreak of the war, but
which was burnt by some Federal forces daring it,
have moved down to Bybalia, a beautiful little
piney wood's station-town, one hundred and thirty-
eight miles from New Orleans, where they will lay
at once the loundatiun of a southern Lowell. ' The
brick are contracted for. the lumber is half oat, and
the t'onndations are already cleared off, and it will
not be long belbre two toll brick buildings, 8fly
feet wide and three hundred -and sixty to length,'
ill be ready ror the reception of machinery.
This establishment will chiefly manufacture
woolen and cotton mixed goods,': it is not pelirYcd
that there will hereafter be much of a market for
the coarser cottons, which wars ones so much used
for laborers; at U events it is toluruuh cloths of a
middle quautv as to hneness and superior as to su
ral! itr, and secure a good name, as has been done
by tue Oeorgia and Aluiunuv Ja.lories, fur tne ex
cellence or tue goods they oner to toe public. 1 be
mills will he run by steam: hut, as fuel is cheap
und at their very doors in ioexhaustless quantities
this will give them little additional cost., Ih-y
will begin with five thousand spindles, with room
for expansion and addition. ' :' ,' '
You must recollect that all this bat been resolved
upon and begun scarce a month ago, in a region
whose total desolation vou can only remotely con
ceive, and by a people just forced by defeat, deple
tion, and tne loss 01 an tne meant or sustenance,
into an unconditional surrender, whereby they bad
barn deprived of species, of property in which
tbsy had too tar ad all tbeit hopes. U '4 k S

apparently siicrect'ed In making himself exceeding
ly agreeable to a married lady accompanied by he1
little daughter. By and by the train approached
the tunnel at Muldrough bill. The gay and festive
lieutenant leaned over and whispered in tlie lady's
ear, It was noticed that she apteared as thunder
struck, and her eyes immediately after flamed with
indignation. , A moment more, and a smile lighted
up her features. What changes ! That smite, it
was not ot pleasure, but was sinister. Il was un
perceived by the lieutenant She made him a reply

the tunnel ran the cars. Lady and colored nurse
quickly changed seats. Gay lieutenant threw his
arms around the Udy's sable, pressed her cheek to

Iwnnet smashed." Jane, poor colored beauty, hung
ber bead a moment, tbe observed of all olnervers.
and the.i turning around to the lieutenant, replied
"this man hugged and kissed me in the tunuel I '

The act of Congress of tbe 4th of July, 18C4,
provides for tbe payment of all Cotnmissarv and
Quartermaster's stores luken front loyal citizens bf
Tennessee, which bave been taken by the proper
officers or tbe Government where memorandum re'
oelpts bare been given; and where tbe proof satis
fies the Quartermaster or Commifsnry General of
the justice ot the claim, they are directed to report
all such claims for paynteat td third Auditor of tbs
Treasury. ' . '
Tbe forma used in Tennessee In getting up claims
In the lasi class of cases, so far as I have seen them,
are in the main correct. .. Tbe proof of course,
must conform to the facts' in each particular case,
but many account) are made of inadvertently stating
that the Colonel of such a regiment took from tbe
claimant the Quartermaster orCommissa y snpplU
mentioned in tbeir account Ka b regiment brigad
or division, hat its Quartermasters and Commissa
ries, It is they who supply or should supply tbs
regiments, brigades or divisions with tbe Quarter
masters stores or Commissary supplies. Tbey are
osuolly along with their commands and take the
tupplies, and account to the Government for the
same, or should do so in all such cases. The ac
counts should be so stated. , Tbey are- the proper
accounting officers of tbe Government for stores
and supplies, and not tbe Colonels or tbe Generals.
W here cotton or other articles of produce or mer
chandise have been seited by tbe officers of the
Government, civil or military, and disposed or lor
the use of tbe Government claims in all such caees
will bare to be adjusted by the Court of Claim
here iq Washington or allowed by act of Congress.
Many persons In Tennessee bave bad their claims
against the Government submitted to what i known
as tbe Court of Claims at Nashville,' and perhaps at
Knoxvills. The claims allowed by said Courts are
ignored by the (.overnment ' The papers are on
file in tbe Qaartermatter General's Department,
and the papers will not be returned to the parties,
but where tbey bad memorandum receipts or im
perfect vouchers wh eb they filed in laid courts,
copies therroC I feel assured, will be furnished tbe
owners, that they make, off tbeir accounts anew
