most attractively placed on the stage by
the management. To night a new play,

written gome of the best stones aaa
plays published in f ranee. The Sphinf

It is a society play, depicting French
home life with all it peculiarities and
sensational incidents; insed, the
Sphinx depicts aocial life everywhere
whenever the good and bad come yn con
tact. The plot is most interesting, and
the play should be greeted by a crowded
house.' The cast is as follows:

DARK LANTERN MEETING.
Emeraoa Ethrlderi Make a Talk
to lb People,
Last night about five hundred citizens
attended tbe Greealaw Opera House for
the purpose of listening to Emerson
Etheridge, one of the nominees of the
dark-lantern party, which has been se
lecting Senators and Representatives for
the people in secret meetings like the
old Know-Nothings, of which defunct
party many of the leaders of the so-
called People's Reform and Working-
men's party were shining lights. Mr.
Etheridge made a very clever speech
but it was of a rambling and incoherent
nature. At times he became eloquent
and at other times absurd. He followed
the train of argument laid down by a
leading candidate for the United States
Senate, and even went further in favor
of complete repudiation of the debts of
the State. He almost wept over the
Confederate widows and orphans, but be
was one of the men who was on the
other side during the late war, and by
his influence helped to make many a
widow and orphan in Tennessee. Ether.
idge abused everybody and everything.
He abused the Democracy, Conserva
tism, Radicalism, funders, tbe press, the
leaders of both parties; referred to Jef
ferson Davis as the princo of repudia-
tors in Mississippi; he abused the rebel
lion, and claimed to have been a Radi
cal all his life.
He was evidently disgusted with all
persons and things, and hurled his in
vectives and abuse at the world gener
ally. The philippic was less interspersed
with oaths and profanity than the other
harangues heretofore eloquently deliv
ered by the accomplished orator. Mr.
Etheridge announced himself a candi
date on the P. R. and W. ticket; that he
had accepted the nomination and would
make the race. Tbe speech was replete
with good things wild assertions un
supported by proof a few old anecdotes,
etc. He took a shy at the city govern
ment and created quite a laugh when he
proclaimed that Mayor Loague, not be
ing able to pay the city debt, had put
the city money where it would do the
most good. , Tbe speaker did not seem
to like Loague, and referred to bis ad
ministration several times in no very
complimentary terms. The eloquent
gentleman did not refer to the fact that
the committees of the P. R. and W.
party were acting in accord with the
negroized Radical party, and that a
combination had been perfected between
the two Elements opposing the Demo
cratic and Conservative party. Mr.
Etheridge was inost anxious to know
how many producers were in the room
and how many were on the Conservative
ticket he, Mr. Etheridge, being a grand
producer of gas. Tbe eccentric and
eloquent speaker closed his harangue
with a very pretty compliment to the
ladies, and on concluding, received as a
reward a magnificent bouquet.
On the stand were Robertson Topp,
Mr. Latham and the representatives of
tbe Ledger, Appeal and Avalanche.
At the close of the Etheridge oration
Mr. Topp got up and read a list of
persons, who, in May last, signed a call
organizing the Reform party, but in that
list of names our reporter recognized
numbers of gtmtlerren who are advo
cates for the election of the Conserva
tive ticket, and wbo will not follow the
P. R. and W. party in their unholy alli
ance with the negroes and wbite Radi
cals of Shelby county. Colonel Topp
referred to tbe name, " dark-lantern
party," in an excited manner, which
proved that the arrow shot from the
quiver nad penetrated deep into tne
bosoms of the dark-lautern party organ
izers, who are the friends of the people
in the dark. Poor old dark-lantern
Know-Nothingism cannot be revived in
Memphis at this late day. The citizens
present were well pleased with tbe enter
tainment prepared by the independents
MENDELSSOHN CONCERT !
IJonday, October 26th,
Greenlaw Opera House
Important Rehearsal To-Mght.
Mr. B. M. Strattan, a son of T. J.
Stratton, was greatly shocked on yester
day evening to receive the sad intelli
gence announcing the sudden death of
bis father. Tbe shock will also be great
to his happy family, with whom he was
aa idol. The deceased, was about Tj
years old, and for many years an invalid
from tbe distressing disease of asthma.
He had but a few weeks sines returned
to gladden tbe hearts of his loved family,
after spending tbe summer at tne homer
stead of his forefathers, and revisiting
for the last time, the scenes of his early
childhood in bis native State, Virginia.
He loft home on Iiut Monday, to visit his
son, Dr. I. II. Stratton, of Tunica
county, Miss., and on yesterday his
death was announced by telegraph. Ho
removed to this county several years
since, and by his many redeeming quali
ties as a good neighbor and christian
won for himself and family the love and
esteem of a host of friends, both in tbe
country and city, who will be grieved to
learn of bis demise. LI is remains are
expected by the steamer Illinois to-morrow
morning, and will thence be for
warded to his home, near Bethlehem
church, for interment.
