A TEBItlBLK MISTAKE.
Outward b. Iuna'rd Application-The
Eflcctx or the Wrong Bottle.
A few nights ago a couple of etrancers
arrived in the city and put up at one of our
hotels, both occupying the same room.
Daring Tuesday list, both of the gentle
men took a circuit around the city, and
droppedinto the various wholesale houses
on an inspecting tour, for they were mer
chants from a neighboring country town.
One of the party was bald-headed, and
having traded considerably at one of our
drug houses, took a fancy to a bottle la
beled "great hair restorer," and purchased
it for his own private use. The other gen
tleman had been mixing around with the
grocery and liquar men, and a sample of
"best Robertson county" had been put up
for him to try. Natural enough, each of
the individuals, upon arriving at their
room in the hotel, relieved themselves of
their bottles, both of which were deposited
on the mantelpiece for safe-keeping. The
man with the bottle of whisky had reached
the hotel ahead of his companion, and
left the room before the return of his
friend with the small crop of hair. The
latter, anxious to test the merits of the pre
paration, had anointed his head freely
when first reaching the room After per
ambulating through tho city, the former
reached the hotel again just about night,
and before going into supper, ho concluded
to see what virtue there there was in the
bottle.of Robertson county that had been
presented to him during the day. So he
hurriedly proceeded-to his room, and feel
ing his way to the mantle-piece in the dark,
he found the bottle, and turned it up, and
swallowed a good square drink. If he
had received a galvanic shock, the effect
could not havo been more sudden. He
dropped the bottle, and for a time suffered
the most excruciating pain. The bell rope
was pulled, and a waiter answered the call
A physician was summoned,"and arrived
at the bedside of the Buffering man juntas
bald-head, a jovial curse, as he was called
in his native place, entered the room. He
discovered his hair restorer broken on the
hearth, and after a little inquiry, comprC'
bended tho situation, and eo did the doctor,
who soon had his patient restored to "feed
ing condition." Tho young man however
still insists that bristles are growing iu his
throat, and says that he will after this ad

liquids to be "well shaken before taken,''

An Old Ueslldent or Memphis Crushed
In tho early part of the day yesterday,
says the Memphis Aialaache of Ttieday, a
sad accident occurrtd at the Memphis and
Ohio depot, resulting in the immediate
death and terrible mangling of Mr. C. N.
Robinson, principal watchman for the
railroad company. He was standing on
main track near the crossing of Third
street, taking down the numbers of the
carsof a freight train which had just cr.me
in and been switched off on the side track.
Tho engine " Victory" had crossed Inck
on the main track and was backing up to
the shop, and was ringing the bell, but the
switch engine was at the rear of the freight
train, and Mr. Robinson, it is supposed,
being busy, mistook the bell of the Victory
for that of the switch engine. The engi
neer could not sec the track, and the len
der and engine both passed over the unfor
tunate man before the engineer checked
up. Death was instantaneous and the body

Jloy Can They Speak?
Disregarding the suggestion to postpone
the affair till Christmas or the Fourth of
July, as a matter of economy in turpentine
and fire-crackers, the colored people and
that portion of the whito community who
are greatly rejoiced oer the election of
Grant and Colfax, have determined upon
an immediate public celebration of the
event. Tho principal feature of the de
monstration is to be speaking in both halls
at the Capitol, and the following named
gentlemen areannoucccd to do the talking
of the occasion : Hon. U. II. Harrison
IIou. D. W. C. Senter.IIon. D. M. Nelson,
Hon. D. W. Peabody, Hon. T. C. Muse,
Hon. W. M. Woodcock, Hon. John Hugh
Smith and Hon. T. A. Hamilton
It will be observed that the names of
distinguished colored orators, "Hon." John
Cockrill and "Hon." Randal Brown do not
appear in the list of speakers. How is
this? Is the seemingly significant onus
sion the result of accident, or an intentional
slight by the white managers of the affair
upon the colored troops whoso votes so
largely helped to achieve the victory to be
celebrated ? If an accident, the omission
is pardonable if otherwise, it is mean.
The colored people who are mainly de
pended upon for getting up the noise and
audience of the coming celebration, and
who will no doubt be looked to for a lib
eral share of funds to defray the expenses
of the same, are entitled to an explanation.
Itis.certainly due them for these white
managers to say why black men are so
highly honored before an election and so
strangely forgotten just after its occurrence.
Let the explanation be made and recorded.
But let us glance at the list of while ora
tors announced, and see how some of these
gentlemen can have the heart to rejoice over
what is termed a Radical triumph, and
how others mentioned in the list can find
leisure and disposition to harangue polit
Hon. H. n. -Harrison has just been
overwhelmingly defeated in the Legisla
ture for public printer. With what sort of
enthusiasm can ho celebrate the victory of
a party so manifestly ungrateful for the
service ho has rendered it? How can ho
have the heart to utter words of cheer and
non. D. W. C. Senter, Speaker of tho
Senate, has hut recently passed through
the humiliating ordeal of being arraigned
at the bar of that body, for giving aid and
comfort to the Confederacy while a mem
ber of Gov. Harrib' Rebel Legislature.
Knowing, as he certainly must do, that he
only escaped conviction and removal from
office, because, as stated by a Senator du
ring the discussion attending, his arraign
ment, a majority of his colleagues at some
stage or other of the rebellion, either sym
pathized with or supported it, and that to
remove men from office upon charges of
that sort, would leave Tennessee without a
Legislature, with how much voice can
Speaker Senter sing psalms over the
achievement of victory by a party which
passes laws practically forbidding his fu
ture election to any office of profit, honor
or trust? How can he say "thank God
and the people who condemn me, for the
election of Grant and Colfax?"
Hon. T. A. Hamilton, elected to repre
sent Tennessee in the councils of the nation,
will, before he takes his seat in that cap
acity, be required to make solemn oath
that he never aided or abetted the rebel
lion. Gentlemen of unquestioned veracity
have publicly charged that Mr. Hamilton
was early in the war connected with the
Quartermaster's department of the Con
federate army. If Mr. Hamilton cannot
disprove the charge, how is he to take the
required path, or evade the law disqualify
ing for office all persons who have aided
and abetted the rebellion ? Called upon to
swear that he has been unswervingly true
to the government of the United States,
can he, as if with magician's wand, dispel
all proof to the contrary, and boldly de
clare himself one of the Lord's untainted ?
If he cannot, how cm he have the heart to
rise up in the Capitol and say to the blessed
that he was always loyal, and that he sin
cerely rejoices in the triumph of rtdictl
ism? Hon. D. M. Nelon is Clerk of the Sen
ate, and, leaving his erroneous political
views out of the way, altogether "a nice
young man." He reads bills and calls the
; roll in a clear and distinct manner, and
sometimes even in a musical tone of voice
discharges this branch of his official duty
He has in fact a voice to be proud of, and
can readily see the danger to which i
would be exposed by a long-winded ora
lion at the nronosed iubilee. He will
therefore! recognize the importance o
brevity, which is, after all, "the soul o
wit," in the congratulations he may have
Hon. D. W. Peibjdv is a votine man of
unquestioned loyalty, and no doubt has
cause to feel thankful over the result. He
was not vested with Supreme Court honors
by Gov. Brownlotv, but was a few days
since elected City Attorney, which is said
to be a better thing, financially speaking
than any judgs'uip in the State, provided
the incumbent manages it with that end
in view. It seoins, however, that Mr,
Peabody can still find time to address gen
eral assemblies of his Radical fellow-citi
zens. He has lately had the good fonune
to marrv a Tennessee wife, and we hope
tbat in future the irood l.idv will mmaue
to keep him at home of evenings.
Hon. John Hugh Smith is Judge of tho
Criminal Court now in term, and with some
unimportant and even questionable excep
tions, a gentleman with a record of undoubt
ed lovaltv. He i: also blessed with solid
proportions and a ready faculty for speech
making. Wo listen to him with pleasure,
even sometimes while he utters sentiments
we rannot approve. This is because we
give him credit for a degree of candor not
common to his political associate-', anil tli
possession of enough political honesty to
occasionally rebuke his party friends fur
official rascalities. We regret to see him
dragging the jud.cial ermine of tbeStite
flirnnoh lhe dirtv cess-pools of Radical
ringism, and hope he will keep the afore
said ermine well tucked tip to prevent a
contamination that nil the waters of the
Cumberland could not wash clean. When
thejubilce is over, we will be pleastd to
hear that Judge Smith either declined to
speal: or only said a few words in tho way
of a priestly bsnediction.
Hon T. C. Muse is an elected Elector
on the Grant ticket in Tennessee, and there
fore has some personal cauo for rejoicing,
He is hUo a candidate for Secretary of
State, and that fact more than all others
will inspire his muse to celebrate in song,
as well as etorv, the brilliant victory of
the party ho swears by.
Hon. W. M. Woodcock is a member of
the popular branch of the Legislature, and
will be a candidate ror re-election, provided
the franchise law is not materially altered
before the next campaign. Unlike the
noisy bird alter wtncli he is named, Mr
W. is a quiet gentleman, although usually
pecking away with commendable industry
at the House in behalf of his constituency
and their interests. He is expected to
spread himself and whistle a lively time
in the grand pow-wow of the gushing vic
tots. It will bo obseived as a very remarkable
fact, that all the speakers announced are
' office-holders. With the exceptions we
have mentioned, it may betaken for grant
ed that they are in admirable condition
for commemorating the election of their
sort to wield or thwart the destinies of the
nation. Go in, gentlemen, and make hay
while the political sun shines to your
liking. It is a bread and butter business
with you, and your zeal should be praised
rather than censured.
Skitr it Gnylon'.'s Minstrels.
One of the very best performances we
havo ever witnessed is that presented by
the Minstrel Troupe now engaged at the
Summer Street Theater. Tho feats of
legerdemain, by Frank Pell, are unap
proachable, and the contortion act of Mas
ter Willie Gay lord is equal to the best pro
fessionals. He is a mere lad, and will
make his mark some day. Armstrong's
flute solo is Buperb, while the pantomime
of Pango, the ape, was received with great
applause. Andrew McKee, the song and
dance man, and an old favorite here, is
among the minstrels. The evening's en
lertainment concludes with Prof. Scaffei's
celebrated dissolving views, which is alono
a good show, and worth the price of ad mis
sion. The theater, wo may add, was dense
ly ;crowded, and during their stay the
troupe will receive that patronage due such
an array of talent as is presented.

The Memphis Avolanclte of Tuesday
thus refers to this distinguished divine
This eminent young divine on Sunday
last delivered two sermons in this city
that were unsurpassed for power of
thought and grandeur ot delivery, by any
discourses ever delivered in our c:ty. 11
preached in the morning at tho First
Methodist Church, and at niht at the
Hernando street Church. Each houso
was filled to its utmost capacity. It was
a literal jam, with no standing room left,
.Many went away unable to enter tho ves
tibules ot tuo churches.
The preacher's themo in the morning
was the .Judgment ; at night. Redemption.
Much has tieen s.iid in the newspapers,
both church and secular, relative to the
extraordinary power of this young divin
in tho presentation of the truths of the
Christian religion. Public expectation
had been aroused - and excited bv th
fume of his preaching, until many friends
of his church trembled for the result lie
met expectation and moro than met it.
And yet there is a simplicity and purity
in the stylo ol his delivery that disarm
criticism. There is no bonst in manne
or parade ol forms ; his enunciation clear
and distinct, and his manner of delivery
simplo and unaffected We pronounco
him ono of tho first orators of the age. Of
tho substance of theso two discourses
we could say much, anil speak in
tho highest terms, and still not do them
full justice. Great ideas and largo
thoughts tell as ponderous weights from
his master mind, but always clothed in
the most beautiful attire. Sometimes tho
language was gorgeous, but always well
fitted unu adjusted. Una ot his must re
markablc powers is in wordspainting; i
equals tho genius of the canvas delinea
tor; the picture stands out living and
breathing. With this power we were
struck in his morning discourse, as he ai.
sembled the bust ot the past lor tho gran
assizo. It was the perfection of oratory.
But we refrain from further comments.
All should hear him. Mr. Holland is a
citizen of Kentucky, and comes from tho
Stato that has given to tho world tho
Clays and Brcckinridgc3, Uascoms and
Kavanaughs. And vet he lives in tho
same element with these groat minds.

the overhanging cliff on the south sido of
tho fall, which cannot, however, be
reached without a weansomo jourmy
through quaking oogs ana across muddy
stream?. The height of the fall has been
much exaggerated. Tho books nil agree
in estimating the descent at least at 000
feet, and it is not unusual for travelers
to maintain that tho leap is a thousand
feet high, tuners have doubted the ac
curacy of tho calculation made by its
discoverer, t roiessor llaustcin, and have
observed that tho visitor s position tEUS
.cause the proportions of the waterfall to
be foreshortened in a very unusual do
crce, it the common opinion is to he a.
cepted. At the time of one of our visits
a party of Norwegian engineers wci
employed upon a government survey, at d
they decided the question lor us by stat
ing that the deptn ot tho chasm was un
der 500 feet. There cani however, be no
doubt that tho sheer fall of so larce
body of water in long columns or wreaths
of foam is ono of the most magnificent
sights in Iiuropo. After gathoring from
the edgo ot the clill overhanging th
Foss, a fine plant of tho ' King of tho
Mountains," which attains great perfec
tion in the black oozy soil, we fo!'
lowed tho course of tho river in
land, instead of returning to tho
shore, a dozen miles below. As
so few travelers go further inland than
the waterfall itself wo will close this
description of tho Hardanger region with
n few words about the upper country.
lho march land lying between tho inouu
tain-tops heio forms what is called a
"field-dale, or mountain valley, closed i
the end of a fow miles by a sudden rise
in the cround, and stretching ajrain in
land on n higher elevation, until step by
step the limit of vegetation is reached
and nothing but stony peaks and muddy
hills remain. Wo were well ontcrtained
at a little farm lying in the lower portion
of tho "fjeld-dale," and surrounded by
meadows were ' you scarce could sec the
earth tor flowers, and where tho wild
strawberries and juicy cloud-berries grew
all about in wonderful profusion. Af;er
coffee and trout, with bowls of fruit and
cream, we wero shown to the rooms hung
with sweet herbs and stored with heaps
of peas, mallows, and other corintry
treasures, where our beds of sweet hay
had been prepared. Un the left outside
lay a stack of what locked like paste
board, but which was in truth the house
hold store of "llad-brod" or thin griddle
cakes of oatmeal. Wo continued next
day our course beside the river, tlixough
meadows as luxuriant as ever; tno lor
get-mc-nots spread in masses on every
sue, tho slender ranunculi or "reindcer-
flowcr.i" choose the drier sides of the
knolls and hillocks, "and the wild marsh
marigold flames like Dro tnrousdi swamps
and hollows gray." Passing some lino
cascades at tikurvestol, wo entered a
well-wooded plain, from which a green
hill rises, surmounjed by a little farm
the highest in situation of all upon this
range of mountains. We turned away

rock, polishol a .parently by glacial ae

and permitting them to movo only inch

was seen issuing from the ground, and
swaying to and 1'ro in the wind. This
was a waterfall n uncd Storli foss, of
which we had never seen any description,
It fills from a considerable height into a
deep cbfism, like the Voring itself; by

snow. This region is inhabited only by
the skulking foxes, ths wild reindeer of
which, to our great pleasure, we passed a
numerous herd and by the golden plo
vers, whii'h perch upon the scattered
rocks, and raise their wailing cry as the
traveler passes along tho moor. Turning

square and is two stories in height" The
weather boards, which have no doubt
been in uso a century, aro still of good
service, and so is the antique "f oof. Tho
first floor is occupied as a grocery, and
the upper storvis tenanted bvseveralnoor
families, who, as a matter of course, pay
enormous rents, and hence, old as it may
be, it still pays as well as ono of modern

it was in the suburbs of the city, which
then contained about 20,000 inhabitants.
It was tho "Beach House," and steod

thousand acres, worth 300,000,009. The

LEAVING THIS DAY.
A. Baker, Cairo, 4 p.m.
The river at this point yesterday was
stationary, with Cve feet large on this shoals.
Weather clear and ceal.
The A. Baker had a good trip up, her
cargo including iron, flour and sundries.
The Kaly Morrison which cleared for
the upper Cumberland had a fins grocery
The.Robert Moore had not arrived up
to dark, bnt in all probability will be found
in port thi morning.
The A. Baker is the regular packet for
Cairo to-day at 4 p. m. She will receive
cotton for the blue line to New York, and
give bills of lading to all points on tho
Ohio and Mississippi rivers. The "Betsoy"
is commanded by the .popular boatman,
CapL J. N. Corbett of Sallie West and C.
E. Hillman fjme.with W.B. Gracey and
Eugene Corbett in the office.
There were one hundred and thirty bales
of cotton on the wharf yesterday, received
by the agents to be shipped to Cincinnati
oa the Robert Moore.
The Knoxville Pea and Herald cf
Tuesday says :
Mr. L. J. Coker will launch his new
steamer in a day or two, and exoects to set
her out by Christmas. Thi3 will be one'of
tho best boats that has ever been on the
upper river, and is especialtr adapted to
the wants of the trade, being of light draft
and at tbe same time has power sufficient
to give her a fine average speed.
The following is from the New Orleaca
Crescent of Sunday :
It was rumored upon the landing yester
day evening that Capt. W. C. Harrison, of
the Birt Able, had been tendered com
mand of the Rutb. and that she
ter the trade as a regular packet between
this city and Vicksburg.
Only 1,014 bales cotton were reetlvM
yesterday per river steamer?.
Ihe total receipts for the rust week cf
cotton by river steamers were 19,503 bite?,
showing a decrease co tuna red with the re
ceipts of the previous week of 2.317 balfa
cotton, and 4,250 on tbe receipt for tbe
WDfil- onillnr. C.l..t. X 1
The Mobile Heguler of the 14th says:
An tlghteen hour rain is reported Up the
Black Warrior, and that stream, in conse
quence, swelling, while the Alabama and
'1'ombigbee, having no backing of that
kind, are Mill on the decline. The arrivals
also report the through 8team;r Leo nt
far behind thtm, with a full load of cotton
(over 1,200 bale) for the Crescent City.
Clara Susk. From a private dispatch
to one of our merchant-", dated Demopolis,
IStb, we are pained to Jearn that this neat
est of stern-wheelers has sunk the dis
patch says fifty mites below DemopoFs
giving no other panic liars'.
The accident occurred on the up-trip,
and must have happened in the latter part
of Wednesday night, or e'.rly Thursday
morning. Boats sink now befure break
fast, and are raised and go on by din er,
and it is hoped that this may be one cf
that kind, though tbe non-arrival of the
Prairie State up to dark last night wou'.l
seem to indicate that she might have ben
detained assisting at the wreck.
