A TALK W ITH AX OLD ACTOR.
An liitereNthig ItentiniiicFn.ce of
an Antonio Express, 17. 1
In conversation Aii C. T. Wolf a
reporter ot the Express learned some
very interesting. news regarding the
lives of some fumoiis actors and ac
tresses who now are cold and silent in
Mr. Wolf is in his 81th year, and
played in this city 47 years ago, having
been on the stage 63 years and is psr
hans one of the oldest actors livinfe in
this country. The recent almost
trajio death of Mrs. Booth has brought
to the surface many anecdotes of her
eccentricity and strange temperament.
Id 1808 Mrs. Booth and Mr. Wolf
were in the same company, and were
stranded in some New EuKland town
by the bursting of the company. At
the same time, a mere country loy,
with that sublime ignorance that so
often nivos moneyless or scnselecs en
terprinc9 a partial er complete success,
got together another company for a
tour throueh the Southern States. To
illustrate tho aullibility of rcuutablo
aotors and the straits to which they
aro sometimes put, this company was
composed of well known stars, such as
Uooth, Winder, McUonaiti ana mg
cins. The eomuanv was brought to
gether, and after a tonr of six months
landed in this city where they pmyea
to full houses for two weeks.
And now Mr. Wolf returns to this
city after an abienco of 47 years, and
sav8 all is to chanced that he would
not recognize the place.

Old Traditions el the Bluff.
A tradition las been handed down
through several generations that in
May, 15-11, Fernando dcSoto.thegreat
Spanish explorer, discovered tho Mis
s'ssippi river frc m the bluffs on which
the city of Memphis now stands. These
bluffs were then covered with Indian
wigwams thick as stars in the milky
way. The barbaric splendor of the
chiefs, dressed in the rewards of the
chase and the automatic power excr
oiscd by them over myriads of follow
ers, impressed itself deeply upon the
mind of the sun-burned warrior, of
Spain, who aspired to bo the ruler of
The wilderness that stretched far
away in every direction swarmed with I
game that lurnishcd tood and clothing
to tho song of the forest; the mighty
river and adjacent lakes supplied the
luxury of the fiany tribes to their rude
leasts, and lavish plenty poured iu
wealth around their camp fires.
Here the Chickasaws reigned a
proud, prosperous and warlike people.
Here their council fires were built and
aged warriors deliberated over the
interests ol thfir people. Here tho
courage and strength of the young
hunter were tented before being ad
mitted as a warrior. Here the dusky
maiden listened to the pleadings of
love beneath the shades of the mighty
oaks, and the old, old tale seemed ever
new to willing ears. Tho Sriiniank
though wearied with toilsome marches,
severo fighting with hostile tribes and
tho many hardships incident to the
wildernenscs through which they had
passed, felt their spirits revive as they
beheld the great river and at a Unit!
when spproacbiog summer made both
air iad sky romind them of their lar
distant Louies in sunny Spain.
Th" soft and balmy breeze from
the se'-ith came laden with tho
pei fume of the wild flowers
that carpeted the green sward
in abundant profusion. The tinkin?
sun bathed the western sky in a flood
of glorious liht, shaping, with tho
iali!r luiiil o' nature. . the p'irj.le.
t-iiv. r grey and gKic.oUh-iiiiU "1 timid
into domes, and towers, utid tuniilec
and fleecy mountains of mow, which ;
strotched their tops to the xenith of
the heavens. Tho gentle wind
slowly dispersed tho gorgeous cloud
and another scene of beauty and gran
deur appeared in the ever-changing
kaleidescope of a magnificent sunset.
In the days of BeSoto the muse of
history decreed that the river, the
bluffs and the splendid sunsets should
form a triumvirato, whose unity of
fortune should be identical aa long as
the river flowed to the gulf, the bluffs
remained a landmark and tho sun fur
nished light and hoat to the successors
of the Chickasaws.
If BeSoto, whea gazing on the beau
tiful scene before him could have been
permitted by tho Goddess ot Fate to
tear aside the veil of the luturc and
view Memphis as sho is in 188 what
feelings would havo filled his soul
with an ccBtacy more godlike in its
raptures than human! The splendid
stores and residences, the long streets
filled with a moving hive of humanity,
the laden railroad trains, tho palatial
steamers at the wharf, the beautiful
park and the thousand and enc other
things which show a center of popula
tion, wealth and elegance would have
passed before hiscnehanted vision like
the phantasm of a gifted poet's dream
and filled his being with a longing to
bo the guardian spirit of the coming
city and watch its welfare and pros
perity, As tho evening shades gathered
over the river and night shrouded
tho bluffs in darkness, the council fires
were lighted and the war-worn voter
ans of the Old World met those of the
new to deliberate upon tho
objects and probable results I of
tins nrsi visit oi toe wniio man to inc
wigwams of the Chickasaws
Around tho seated xirclo was slowly
passed the pipo of peace, which was
smoked by tho visitors, not as a mat
ter of choice, but ono of custom and
necessity. If Sol Coleman's cclo
brated No. 10 cigars had been handed
around they would have been gladly
accepted, as everybody knows their
purity, flavor and satisfying qualities.
Aftor the Spaniards bad explained the
object of their visit, aid ws offered
them in their undertaking, but they
were urged to remain a few days as
guests of the principal chiefs and
witness the games aud dances which
occupied tho leisure hours of tho
braves. Soon after the departure of
the Spaniards the gallant JJeboto died
of malignant fever, and was buried in
the bosom of that mighty river which
he was the first white man to behold.
The name of BeSoto is perpetuated
upon the spot ot his discovery in
streets, in buildings and in industrial
enterprises, and his energy and push
and determination finds fitting imita
tors in the daily conduct ot our mer
chants. Though stern warrior.trained
in a most cruel school, yet he possessed
many traits worthy ot a model tor
the generation who walk the ground
that he once trod.
Rheumatism, neuralgia, hysteria,
female weakness, etc., promptly cured

The James Boyn Maid to be Will
ing to Surrender -
Louisville special to Cincinnati Eno,iurer 1
A gentleman well known in this city
hailed tho Enquirer correspondent
this morning at Ihird and Jctterson
streets, and made these remarks: "I
havo jut seen a very intimate
friend of the James brothers, and
this friend requested me to see you
and say that tho James boys are
willing to lurnish tlUU.OOO bond each
for their good behavior if they be al
lowed to surrender, enter civilization
and remain at peace with all men in
the future, and not be annoyed here
after hy trials upon charges now al
letted against them. This friend asked
me 1 1 have you make this offer known
to the Enquirer, and if the propnsi
tion is acoeoted thev will surrender.
and I now guarantee to you that what
1 say will be strictly complied with.
Tho information was ot such a start
ling nature that at first it was pre
mined to be a joke; but the gentleman
woo gave it is well known to the cor
respondent, and ho insists upon the
proposition appearing in print. Ho
further stated that the boys wero not
far away from Uouisvillo, and will
remain where they are until thei
proposition is heard from,

Siwi-ial to the Courier-Journal.)
Washington, November 17. It is
very plain that something will have
to be done to suppress Guiteau. The
Judge and counsel on both sides are
losing patience; hence the threat made
to day by the court to put him in irons
and remove him, allowing the trial to
proceed without his presence. His
couduct to-day was more annoying
than on the first day. The absence of
the prisoner would be severely felt by
the dt'Ieosc, and it might bo aiadc a
plea for a new trial, where a case rests
entirely, as this does, upon the ques
tion of the insanity of the accused.
His personal appearance and conduct
during the tnut would go very far
toward lntluenning llieiury. The ap
pearance of Secretary Blaine as a
witness was ot great interest, lie
was a model witness for the prosecu
tion, and ttto audience was greatly
amused to see the eate with which he
baified tho counsel for tho de-
leuse in their eiiort to score a
point on tho relations of Conkling
with rrcsieient Uarheld. it- was
astonishing how little Blaine knew
personally. Ho had heard a great
del and read somewhat of the disa
greements among these Republicans,
and could possibly have delivered a
two hours' speech on the subject," but
he prelerred to answer speciho ques
tions. Mr. Scovillo certainly made a
mistake in tackling the wily Secretary.
The courtroom is densely crowded,
and it is noticeable how easily the
people aro amused. There is much
laughter over very mild jokes,
and the autics of the pris
oner are intensely enjoyed. All
the talk about danger to him from
mad, infuriatod avengers bag passed
nto disoussion ot him as a curiosity.
Nino-tenths of the men and women
who throng tho court room would
deeply regret the untimely taking off
of so interesting a specimen. Uoubt
less they would be pleased to be pres
ent at his hanging, but in (ho mean
time they would resent being robbed
of the present "sensation." The in
tense egotism of the brute repels sym
pathy for him, else doubtless ho would
begin to attract that.

Chattanooga Times, 18.1
General W. T. Sherman, head of
the United States army, arrived in the
city yesterday afternoon from Atlanta,
accompanied by General 0. M. l'oo,
Colonel A. 1 Morrow, of his staff.and
Colonel L. M. Dayton, a prominont
manufacturer of Cincinnati, formerly
his Chief Aid-de Camp on the fiold,
who was with him at all his battles.
The party took rooms at tbo Read
A Times reporter called on the
General at his room yestorday after
noon, and was cordially received.
The General, (or a man of sixty-two,
iswellrrosorvcd.and looks hale and
hearty, and his croct stature betokens
a green old age, his only difficulty
being a slight asthmatio trouble.
Ho wears a short, gray, stubby
board and mustache, cut close,
and has changed very littlo since his
visit hore two years ago, and what lit
tlo change has occurred was for the
better. The General is an incessant
and most interesting talkcr. and grows
eloquent on any and all subjects. He
says that ho is surprised and gratified
at the remarkable progress manifested
in the South, and especially in the
valloy of the lower Tennessee, since
he first visited it in 18(t as an officer
of tho United Stiles Engineers; he
says mat wore no a yonng man,
ho wonld settle somewhere lrotu

regards the tier of fine nuclei
of towns and cities, over a
fino line of roads connecting those
points, ai superior in their climate and
all their possibilities oftradotoany
other region on the continent lie
thinks that the Atlanta Exposition is
a most wonderful product of Southern
energy, and considering the means at
hand, and thespareness of our copula
tion, he was greatly surprised at its
magnitude, and what had already
been accomplished by it. He states
that he came to Chattanooga merely
to spend a few hoars with his friend,
Jndgo Key. He and his party
will leave on1 a special train this
morning at 5:30 for Wash
ington, via the Cincinnati Southern.
RECEPTION AT JUDGE KEY'S RESI
DENCE. It was intended that the General
and party should have a formal re
ception at the residence of Judge Key.
The sickness af Miss Maggio precluded
any elaborate affair, and so there was
only an informal visit. Ueneral Micr
man and General Foe, of his staff, ar
rived at the residt-nco about 4:30, and
were met by Major M. 11. Clift, Maj.
A. Key, X. .luchmond, f.sq., and
Colonel J. E. MacGowan. Mrs.
Key, assisted by her daughters.
Misses Emma, Katie and Sallio did
the honors. The call was a most do
lightful one to all who heard the old
veteran recount his varied and
chequered experiences in war and
peace. 1 here were just enough of the
party to set him off oj a fresh tangent
whenever he baa flown his night on
the last propulsion.
General Sherman is an elegant
talker, a philosopher, historian, liter
ateur and soldier combined.
The little party broke up at Judge

AFTER MANY YEARS.
Skeleton of a Murdered
In the Ntntup o( a Live Tree Near
the Town ol Lonoke.
On last Friday Mr. Ed. Curtis, wb
lives in that vicinity, found in a hoi
low stump, about seventy fivo yard
fiom the Bayou Meto section house,
the skeleton of a man. The coroner
was notified, and on Sunday with
jury he repaired to the spot and viowe
the romains. The jury s verdict was,
in sense, that the skeleton was that of
a small or medium sized man, who
came to his death by causes unknown
to them. Mr. K. L. Sanders, one of
tho jury, and Dr. 11. N. Koss, the phy
aician-who examined the bones, we
are indebted ior this information
lite opinion is that the party was
killed and hidden in this novel man
ner, as his thigh bones wero chopped
or broken just above the knees, an
again the remains show that
they had been severed about
the hips and shoulders, in order, doubt'
less, to more easily crowd them into
tho cavity of the stump. Lnon th
whole, was found lime, placed there,
it is supposed, to aid decomposition,
and prevent any odor, and then a
layer of earth.. About three years
ago a man by the name of Dennison
disappeared rather) mysteriously from
this section bouse, and circumstanoes
point to him as tho victim. His wife
several weeks alter he was missed,
canio to town ana icu ucr oniy cnnu.
a little girl, with Mrs. Teaguo, who
then kept the Central Hotel, until she
could go to Wemnlns. She went to
Memphis, and Mrs. Teaguc, so we
learn, never heard from the mother
again, and naturally supposed her
death was from yellow lever, as it was
about the time of the yellow fever in
1878. A cloud of mystery, of course,
bangs about the whole affair, and per
haps will remain so till the bright
rays of a just judgment day shall dis
pel the same.
Mr. Martin A. Connolly, a merchant
in Oil City. Pa . writes: "I inherited
ill health from my parents, who were
short-lived. My wife is a sickly little
woman, and has suffered considerably.
We have had five children, three of
whom died in infancy: the other two.
a boy four years of age ami a girl of
seven years, have always been quite
puny, weak, and sickly, come time
ago 1 read a medical work that spoke
of iron as being essential to life, that
want of iron in the blood was tbc
principal cause of ill health.' Shortly
afterward I saw an advertisement of
Brown's Iron Bitters. I determined
to try it for myself and family. The
result has far exceeded my greatest
anticipation. Myself, wile and chil
dren havo all grown hcal'hv and
strong. Sores, acnes and pains, head
aches, indigestion and sleeplessness,
formerly to common in my family,
trouble us no more. Every bottle is
worth its weight in gold.

brought up lrom Mississippi oounty,
having been convicted of murder and
sentoncod to the penitentiary for tho
remarkable term of six months. He
was charged with whipping his son so
violently that he died from the
nect. A great many poople in the
county, who were acquainted witn
lislicr. did not believe that the old
man was guilty of murder, claiming
that tho bov died from the effects of a
congestive chill, not from the effects of
the lash, i osterday a delegation irom
Mississinm county arrived id the city,
and calling on tho Governor, presented
a petition, largely signea, asmng lor
the immediate pardon of the old man.
It was claimed that Fisher could have
gotten a new trial, but that he would
avo been compelled to lav lu tail at
oast six months be lore the time oi
trial would have arrived. The Gov
ernor considered tho matter, but in
view of the facts, did not think that a
pardon could be granted. Tho delega

Found al KnoiTllle Over One
Hundred Years Old,
Ksoxville Chronicle, 17. 1
We were shown yesterday, at the
hardwaro houso ot MoCIung. Powell
!k Co., an interesting relio ot ancient
times. so theBhapeot an old time cotton
ein and carder combined. Ir was ob
tained lrom tho ntcnhens lamiiy, by
Captain Thomas h. Oldham, ot low
an. McClung & Co's. It is inde.d i
curious sneeiman. in these days oi
progress and enlightenment. It 'is
known lobe over one hundred years
old. It is ouite simple, made of pme
timber, without paint or varni6h,
is small and light, only weigh
ing li)0 pounds. It was no
doubt considered a wonderful piece el
mechanism, hut it was before the days
of patents. The machine has not been
in use for a number et years, perhaps,
but all it needs is a littlo rigging up
and repairing, and it will take tho
eotton in the seed and turn it out
oarded. Captain Oldham remombcrs
the machine, and remembers to have
worked it when a small boy, and it
was an old one then. It has pieces of
old newspapers pasted about over its
cylinders, one of whioh may be no
ticed to be a bit of the Knoxvi'le
Register of tho year 1817.
Captain Oldham will send it in a
few days to Atlanta, to be placed on
exhibition at the Cotton Exposition.
It will be an interesting exhibit.
To all who are suffering from the errors and
inui'oretions ol youth, nervous weanness,

Spreading Their Fame.
That our rising young poets are ap
predated, is evidenced by tho follow
ing from the Somerville Falcon: '
Memphis has a new poet, a kind of
JJurns who bad been schooled by na
ture and comes from the humbler
ranks of life This new candidate for
the laurel wreath is a carpenter named
Holahan, and judging from liis trade
and his name, we believe he is the
veritable "l'addy of whom the fol
lowing familiar anecdote is told: It is
siid that a recent immigrant from the
Kmerald Isle sat on a roof one day
nailing shingles when a coach an
six" passed by. Pat looked up from
his work and exclaimed, without in
tending tho rhyme:
The rich msn rides in chaises,
The poor man walks be Ja:e.
Charmed with the vcrsehe thought
he bad uccomo suddcnlv lnsmred.
threw down his hammer and sworo he
would never work again. He repaired
immediately to a publisher- to have
the rhyme printed. But on being
asked to repeat it ho said :
"Rich msn ride in chaises
And the poor man bejabers he wilks."

The Seventh Comet of the Year.
Director Swilt, of the Warner As
tronomical Observatory, Rochester,
N. Y., at 11 o'clock p.m. of the 16th
inst. discovered a faint, round,. tailless
comet in the constellation Cassiopeia,
which has a Right Ascension of 1 hour
50 minutes and a Declination north of
71 degrees with a motion slowly west
ward. This is the seventh comet
which has been discovered since tho
first of May last, four of which meet
ing the conditions of the fund, have
received the Warnor Prize of 1200,
Prof. Swift procuring tho first and last
award. Inasmuch as the comet of
1812 is expected in the quarter in
which this one appeared, l'rof. Swift
is not sure at present that tho stranger
in a nui uu uiu laminar comet wnicn
was discovered by Pons. In 1S78 Di
rector Swift, at Denver, claimed to
have discovered an intra Mercurial
anot. In May, 18ai, he will visit
igypt, under the munificent provision
of Mr. H. II. Warner, to observe the
Total Eclipse, at which time ho hopes
M verify his intra Mercurial n anet
