The Illicit .School Exhibition.
The scholar of the Ill-h School are
engaged every evening iu preparing for
their exhibition to come oil at the Athe
neutn to-morrow nit'lit. Their zeal in
this air.ilr Is most commendlble, and
xhould be rewarded by our citizens on
Friday evening with a crowded hotue.
We are told that the programme will be
one of more than ordinary Interest, and
will be enacted to the satisfaction ol the
Treasurer Illake inlornis us that on
Friday evening the Knights Templar, as
heretofore announced, will hold their reg
ular sociable at their hall, and the mem
bers will be pleased to greet tho.e who
have received Invitations, assuring them
a very pleasant time. To add to the en
joyment of their friends the Knights
have secured the services of a first-class
string band for thoe who may haven de
sire to pas away the time in the pleas
ures afforded by tripping the light fan
tastic. The sociable will be amusing and
pleasant, and those who are fortunate
enough to hold an invitation should not
fail to honor It.
The Delta City Cornet Band boys
gladdened tho hearts of the people resid
ing near the comer of Eleventh and Wal
nut streets, on Tuesday evening, hy giv
ing them a prolonged serenade. The
boys are proud of their new and beauti
ful instruments, aud well they may be,
for In tone they are excellent. The mu
sic played hy thu band Is also fine, nnd
has created considerable comment on the
part of the citizens. One piece in partic
ular, If practice Is kept up, will not fall
to draw many flattering words from all
who chance to hear It, aud that Is, "Sil
ver Threads Among the Gold." What
is needed now to make the Delta a baud
hard to excel Is practice, and wo hope
they will not neglect it.

Yesterday morning between 7 and 8
o'clock, as a brace of darkeys were stroll
ing along Washington avenue, they were
observed to stop and begin to flourish
their clenched fists in thu air, in close
proximity to each other's nose. Present
ly the larger darkey, known to the boys
by the appellation of "liunky," pulled
off his coat and went for his partner with
tho llxcd determination of teaching him
a lesson not soon to hu forgotten. The
I other darkey, whose name we are told
Is Thomas Green, didn't seem at all back
I ward, mid received his enemy with a well
directed blow, which for u moment stun
ned liunky; hut ho !oou recovered, and
then It was give and take until the combat
xtM brought to cloe hy tho lutcrven-
tion of some friends, who chanced to be
passing by. Tho fuss, we are told, grew
out of Jealousy, both the darkies being
suiters of a damsel who seems to be
endeavoring to keep on the good side of
both, by treating them alike, showing no
prelerence either way; but the darkies,
each wishing to outwit the other, took
opportunity to pour some story Into
the ear of his adversary on every ocea
slou. liunky swears he will have revenge,
as does Thomas, il it costs lilm his life.
They Thought lie Win Danil.
Yesterday morning, a llttlu German
boy, residing In the lower part of the
city, wltli his parents, wanted to have a
little sport, and accordingly mounted a
colt belonging to n gentleman of the
neighborhood. No sooner was the ur
chin seated upon the back of the
animal than It lifted him gently into the
air, and he fell to the ground, Hut upon
his stomach, where he lay, Insensible.
The mother and sister of thu boy saw
the mishap ol their beloved, and ran to
his assistance, wringing their hands and
sobbing iu the most heartrending man
ner. Upon urrlviug at the spot where
the boy lay, they discovered that to nil
appearances he was dead, and
the sobn and hand wringing grew more
touching. The boy was picked up and
carried to his home, when suddenly he
came to life, and after a moment or two
rolled from the bed, when It struck
the mother and sister that the wind had
been knocked out of the lad, and nothing
more. Their tone suddenly changed,
and the mother said : "D n your little
hide, if ever you get on another horc,
and scare me that way again, I hope he'll
kick your infernal mean head off," and
she caressed him upon the cheek with
the back of her hand, the same making
him yelp with pain. The sister also
Joined in with, "Vou always were a d d
little fool and the sooner you're dead the
better it'll be for us aud you too," aud

worse for his tumble.

As Ilarrell of the Onutte says, "we
have got It" the spelling match fever
and a bad case of it at that. The next
match Is the one to be given by the la
dles of the Methodist church, at the
church parlors, this evening. The per
sons into whose hands the arrangements
for the entertainment were placed, have,
we arc creditably informed, completed
every particular part of them, and that
the spelling match will be a success there
is no room for doubt. The programme,
as it now stands, embraces select reading,
singing and spelling. Mrs. W. I'. Wright
will contribute to the entertainment a
xelect reading, which we arc certain will
be of much interest. Holde this, there
will be some splendid music by members
of the choir. The committee of arranrre-
menU wih us to state that the
amusements for the evening will
Ix-gin at precisely eight o'clock, and
it is their desire that every one w ho can,
should be present. The prize offered for
the best speller is a very appropriate and
beautiful one. being either a Webster's
Unabriilired rieiorial Dictionary, or
Maeaulcy's History ol England, beauti
fully printed and bound. There Is much
peculation as to who will carry away the
prize. Some are of the opinion that Miss
McKee w ill be the lucky person, w hile
other are confident that MUs Houston
will come out of the contest, with llylug
colors. The male spellers of the city
don't seem to sell very high at the pool
box, the people being disgusted wllii the
effort nude by them on the occasion of
the Presbyterian spelling match There
is certainly n very cholcelot w sport in
store for those wlto attend, auU we pre

The following business was disposed
of by His Honor, Judge Dross, yester
day : The first cae was that of a colored
man, who gave his name as Irvln Max
well, whom Ofllcer I.allue had bagged
for stealing a coat, the property of a man
named Henry Wilson, valued at live dol
lars. The ttvidencc iu the case did not
seem sufilcicnt in the mind of the Judge
to convict the defendant, and he was al
lowed to go in peace.
Ofllcer Vi ooten has become tired of
seeing stock, such as horses, cows, mules,
hogs, etc.. running at large upon the
public highway, aud has made up his
mind to put a stop to it. Willi (his view,
lie took Into custody a man named Nel
son, who he alleged Is tho owner of
hogs, and allowed the same to run at
large. The Judge, after considering the
case, fined Nelson three dollars aud costs,
and sent him to the lock-up for four days.
He will labor on the streets.
Matt Keys was arrested by Ofllcer
i ooten for the same offence, but the cvl
deuce In his case was not deemed strong
enough to convict him, and lie was set at
The last case was that of Louis WI1-
llauw, the negro arrested in Howie
Brothers' cellar, last Saturday night,
whllo iu the act of stealing hams. The
Judge, after hearing of Louis' bad con
duct, placed him under six hundred dol
lars ball; In default of payment, he was
sent to the county Jail to await the action
of the circuit court at Its next term.
