MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: MONDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 21 1881.
8BNATOR Mahone Ihinki that Rid
dlcberger will havo a walk-over for
tho United States Senate.
Nashville American: Informa
tion has reached here to the effect
that Chief Justice Doaderick hu so
far recovered from his recent illness
as to warrant the belief that he will
bo alio to preside at the December
terra of the Supremo Court.
Several hundred people failed to
gain entrance to the Strangers' church
last night. At seven o'clock tho house
was packed ; sowojeame in at the win
dows. A large crowd on the ouUido
reluctantly disporscd. About Cvo or
six hundred people wore inbide. The
sermon, though longer than usual,
wasiistenod to with breathless and
unbroken attention. Mr. Long's
text was : "E"ory wiso women
buildothher house: but the foolish
pluckcth it down with her hands."
rrovorbs, xivo. 1 verse. He
discussod in a plain but elo
quent style tho relations, tho
proper position and the duties of
woman, not omitting to denounce the
systems of the past, whioh assigned
her an inferior position and the.usages
of the present under which she is
paid less wages than man for the same
work. The ladies seemed especially
plcasad, and tho male portion of the
eongrcgatioa eould not but admit the
justnoss of this line of argument. lie
did not make out woman to be an
angel in this world of sin and strifo,
but said that she should
be the ally of man and educated as
well. To follow him through with
even a synopsis would take up more
space than can he appropriated. He
touched up the follies of fashionable
women, and pointed out vividly the
misery and ruin that they bring upon
themselves and upon others by neg
lecting thelawsof heilth. Also epoke
of ill advised and hasty marriage, neg-
Icot ot duty afterward, and the urr
happinoss that follows. It was a
very wholesome discourse throughout
A feature of the evening was the
musio. Mrs. Fitts presided over the
new organ on trial. Mr. Armour, the
regular organist, being also present.
In addition to the regular choir there
we re quite a number of volunteer sing
ers. There will be rceular Fcrvinea in
the -church beginning at eleven o'clock
next, Thursday niorning--Tbankfgiv
ing Day.
ST. LOUIS.
Man Killed
for Trying to Hun a
Town.
What t ame to a Man who Turned
Mtate'a Witness.
St. Louis. November 21. A man
named Jesse Munn, living in tbe vi
cinity of Kirksville, iMo.,wns shot and
killed by the City Marshal of that
plaoo while drunk and trying to run
be town.
Tucker Baslmm, of Indcnendcnoe.
Mo., who was sentenced to Icq years'
imprisonment in the penitentiary for
complicity in tho Glcndale train rob
bcry, and was pardoned to testify as
witness for the State ainst Bill
Ryan, who was recently tried and oon-
victed for the same offense, has left tho
country in a sudden and mysterious
manner and his whereabouts are en
tirely unknown. Basham'itcRtimony
convicted Ilyan and gave tho entire
ganp; away, iieloro tho trial ho was
threatened with death if he testified.
and during the trial his house was sot
on firo and an attaok would have been
made upon him had.he not been closely
guarded. Since the trial he hu received
threatening letters, tome signed
"Jcbso" and 6omo "Ed," supposed to
mean Jcbso James and Ed Miller, and
othen of the boyt. Baeham has been
very much exoited lor revcral weols,
and the letters frightened him so ter
ribly that ho conchidod bis only hope
to escape thoir vengeance was to fly
secretly. Ho took his wifo with binv
loft bis property, and even big father
docs not know where ho has gone
The bet posted aro firmly of tho opin
ion that the threatening letters were
written for the tmrrouc oi makine
Bashamlcavo Independence, and be
lieve that tho train robber gang will
now find out his whereabout?, and get
even with hint for bis betrayal of
them. The State ezpeoted to uso
Basham as a witness against the par
ties indietod for the Blue Cut train
robbery, and his evidence was impor
tant. WinferiNh.

GUITEAU'S SHOW.
A Three Times Bigger Crowd
Than Ever.
The Prisoner Seems Over His
Scare.
ROUI.NSO.V RELIEVED
THE CAKE.
FROM
Wasuinoton, November 21. Tho
crowd about the court house this
morning was three times greater than
Saturday, and it was with the greatest
difficulty that those entitled to admis
sipn oould (orca their way through the
doors of tho Criminal Court room
The court was delayed somo minutes
in oonsequence. Guiteau arrived in
a van at 0 o'clock, having an csoort of
three mounted policemen, in addition
to two officers ou the van. He was at
once taken to bis room, where ho
breakfasted and read the morning pa
pers. Ho seemed to have recovered
entirely from hisscaro. He attributed
his escape Saturday to the interposi
tion of tho Deity, and desired his
hearers to understand that bo was not
afraid to die if the Deity desired it,
but ha did not want to bo shot down
like a dog beforo he had time to fully
vindicato bis conduct in a court of
justice. Upon being brought into
court, Guiteau alonco devoted himself
to his papers, and contrary to general
expectation, mado no demonstrations
whatever or allusions to the latest
attempt upon his life. Imme
diately npon opening court, Robinson
arose and addressed the court for the
purpose of calling attention to an ar
ticle in Sunday's Tost in which Sco
ville was made to say that he should
request the withdrawal of Robinson
from the case as he (Scoville) had be
come satisfied that Robinson could be
of no assistance but rather an embar
rassment in the conduct of the defense.
Robinson criticized in severe terms
the discourtesy he had received from
Scovilio.
He washere interrupted by Guiteau,
who brokej out with "Your
Honor, I want Robinson to slay in.''
Continuing, Mr.Robinson requested
tbe oomrt to grant his discharge from
the case, and positively stated that
he could not with self respect remain
in association with Mr. Scovilio.
Guiteau, who bad be:n closely fol
lowing Robinson through tho latter
portion of his speech, broke in again,
and with considerable warmth said:
"That's an able speech and 1 agree
with most of it. If he had only made
it last Monday, there never would
have been any disturbance among us"
Scoville here tried toquiot Guiteau,
when he retorlcd upon him: "Keep
quiet yourself. I'm talking now. I
sympathize with him in this matter."
Scoville mado a brief statement, de
ploring tho divorcement, after which
Judge Cox relieved Robinson from
further connection with the defense
Scoville begin to address the court
with "Wo do not expect to be com
pelled' to conduct the case entirely
without assistance."
Here Guiteau exclaimed, "I under
stood Judgo Magruder was anxious to
assist in the trial, and also Mr. Town
send. t I should liko to havo them
appear licro, as well as Swott and
Trude, of Chicago.
Then adding after a short pauso :
"Ono word on tho uestion of mal-
praotice. My idea is Bimply this: that
by tho physicians own statement on
the 25th of July, that tbo President
was not fatally shot. We don't want
to press the subject, but only desire it
to go on record so that the court in
banc may tako notico ot it." After a
brief pauso Guiteau added: "That's
all there is as to the malpractice busi
ness. Short and to the point I want
it understood that I appear as my own
counsel hero, and I am the agent of
the Deity, and 1 expect him to
take oarc of mo. I think ho
has managed it pretty well so far."
Drs. Woodward and La'nb who tcs
titled to tho character of tho wound
that it was a mortal one, also identi
fied the ball which is exhibited to tbe
jury as tho one they had taken from
the body of President Garfield.
The prosecution then rested their
case and Guiteau wai allowed the
permission to bo heard in tho opening
of his defense, Guiteau, retaining
his eoat, began :
"Your honor, I was not aware that
l was expected to 6 peat tnis morn
ing." Scoville here leaned over and
whispered to him when Guiteau re
torted sharply 'and with impatience.
I wont stand up; I'm not afraid t'
however, but I have only a moment
to speak and will keep my seat. I do
not care to Bay any more tban was
published last Monday in my address
to tho public; I presume tbo jury all
saw it; I . have no set speech
to make; I appear as my
own counsel and my idea is to
make corrections as wo go along, just
as I have dono tho past three or four
days. I don't mean any discourtesy to
any ono, but only want to get at tacts.
If any one says I owe them twenty
dollars and I don't, I will'dcny it on
iue spot, my iue is to lane tnngs

get digested and misunderstood.
think the true way is to interject my
statements as tne case proceeds, i
have not set speech to make, but am
much obliged to your Honor and to
my counsel tor the courtesy ot this in
yilation."
Guitteau's manner seems to have
undergone a marked change since the
early days of his trial, and during the
delivery oi bis snort speech this was
particularly noticeable. At tho con
clusion ho settled back in his chair
witb an air of exhaustion, and rested
his head upon his hand, while a
careworn expression appeared npon
his features, Scoville then addressed
tho jury at considerable length.
"Much," he said, "has keen intro
duced in the evidence thus far which,
to my mind, should, havo do bearing
upon the case. All men shared tho
same opinion relative to tho sufferings
of the President. It was not pleasant
to look at theso things, and when they
were presented to the jury they must
exercise influence. Tho only question,
howovor, for the jury to considor, was
whether the prisoner killed the Presi
dent, and whether at the time he was
in such a condition Mentally as to
render him responsible for the action.
The speaker, with no attemnt at or
atorical effect, presented in a plain,
matter of fact manner points which
he proposed to make, and npon which
tbe defense would rely.
Without concluding his opening ad
dress, Mr. Scoville requested tho court
to allow him further time, and to per
mit him to finish to-morrow.
1 his was granted and the court ad
journed.

WHKRkAB, It has pleased the Divine
Ruler of all things to take from onr
midst Mr. Mix Mm, one of the members of
our association, whose intercourse with us w .s
of the mof t pleafmnt nature, and whose d al-
ings with his fellow-man always bore the im
print of sincerity aod henei'y; there ore it is
trim ot sincerity aod Denes
Resolved by this Board,
in
nat oar deepest
sympathy be extended to the bereaved wife of
oar departea brotaer.
To her. Uone mut row see-n t. offer no en
couragement, Faith no comfort a id Charity
to have abandoned its divii e mi eina ot eon
soUtion. A tiride weeps over tho remains of
ber bridegroom, sadly wondering in her lov
ing heart why she is thus afflicted. What con
rotation ean we, the circle that ha been
broken, ot which ovr brother was ooe of the
parts, offer to tlm stricken widowed bride? Ko
Itting words spoken by ns can convey to her
sad heart the feelings of our deep regret. No
language of curs can soothe her deep distress.
But we would foin beseech her to feel that her
grief is our grief, her so row ours.
U.r only consolation must be sought In the
command of the (treat Jehovah, "lij still and
know that I am God."
Be still, aad heart, sod knew thy Ood doth
undertake
To guide tne fu'nre as Be has the past,
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake,
All now myiteneus shall be b i,ht at ast.
Be it further resolved. That a nnnv of these
resolutions be senl to the bereaved wife; that
tion, published io the daily pape'r. and for
tney tie stread npon tne boi.as ot our associa

Be It also resolved, mat the members of
this Board attend the funeral servicea of our
deceased brother in a body.
