are now engaged fitting up the building

a handsome piece of architecture in its

make room for light and airy vacancy.

self and wife had gone to sleep, a thief en

the trunk, gained possession of the sacred
volume, which he completely rifled of its
financial contents. The bible was left on
floor, as if the robber did net want a book
which forbids stealing. It is supposed the
theft was committed by Borne person who
knew Mr. Dobbins had the money, al-

suit, are that Dr. W. T. Baily, of that

18G3. During all this time, the policy was
in, the hands of the agents at Memphis,
subject to Dr. Baily when his premiums
were paid in. On the 6th of July, Dr.
Baily was attacked with pernicious fever,

A number of our office-holding fellow-
ciliiens and some of their very particular
friends had quite a pleasant lime of it last
evening at the Mtsonic Hall, celebrating
"Forefathers' Day," known as the anniver-
sary of the Mayflower's arrival. Numer-
nos toasts appropriate to the occasion were
proposed, most of which were devoted to
praise of New England and her people.
As a noticeable feature of the occasion,
however, it wa3 observed that none of the
gentlemen offering these good wishes and
opinions of New England said anything
about going back there to live and die.
They didn't say they believed ibis a belter

circumstances make the cise look mightily
The renowned violinist, who formerly
resided in this city, and has lately returned
from a protracted stay in Europe, appeared
on Friday evening last in the first of a
seric of musical entertainments at Pike's
Hall, in Cincinnati. Of her performance
on that occasion, the Gazelle says:
Madame Camilla Urso received a most
hearty welcome, and every note ehe played
carried overwhelming conviction of her
artistic merit. Even her violin seemed to
sympathize with her pure musical temper
ament, and cave out its tone in rich, re
sonant vibrations, as if to assist her in her
various undertakings. She carried her
audience by storm, and yet in lhe most
quiet and unassuming manner, winning all
hearts by her simple, yet lady-like bear
ing. As she stood upon the stage, playing
as is her custom from memory, her bright
and cheerful, vet earnest lice, sometimes
unturned for a sincle moment, as if lo
catch from some distant echo the effect of
her exquisite tone, created an impulse that
will live while memory lasts in the minds
of all who really appreciate the true and
beautiful in this noble branch or art.
To her astonishing management of the
instrument, and her intellectual graces, she
adds sentiment and poetic interpretation,
which certainly rank her among the great
est of her profession.

day, November 26. He returned to Louis

time by many of his friends, and eent a
telegram to his partner, in this city, in re
lation to business matters. Since the 1st
of December, neither his family nor his
friends have heard from him. and they be
gin to fear that he has been foully dealt
with. He was about forty years of ace.
five feet five inches high, with heavy black
beard on lower chin, lie wore a heavy
cold ring, on which were engraved two
hearts. Any intelligence as to his where

The New York Shipping and Commercial
List of the 19th inst. says: "The volume
of trade in general merchandise is light,
as usual at this period of the year, and the
mercantile classes are largely occupied in
getting their affairs in shape for a new de
parture after the holidays. There is but
little change in staple commodities, though
the recurrence of a tight money market
necessitates some realizing, and, in such
cases, irregular prices result. As to the
commercial future, business men, on the
whole, appear lo be hopeful, though, until
I imoprtant measures now pending before
Cosgress, and on which future success of
trade and industry largely depends, shall
assume a more definite complexion, there
will be little disposition lo launch out
upon fresh enterprises, or extended opera'
The New York .Financial and -Commercial
Chronicle contains the following, under
date of Friday evening, in regard lo the
cotton movement :
By special telegrams received by us to
night from each of the Southern ports we
are in possession of the returns showing
the receipts, exports, etc, of cotton for the
Wtek ending this evening, December 18.
From the figures thus obtained it appears
that the total receipts for the last teven
days have reached 81,481 hales (against
83,404 bales last week, 91,233 bales the
previous week, and 76,939 bales three
weeks since,) making the aggregate receipts
since September 1, 1SSS, up to this date,
899,829 bales against 749,125 bales for the
ime period in 1867, being an excess this
season over last season of 150,704 bales.
The exports for the week ending to
night reach a total of 50,833 bales, of
which 31,549 hales were to Great Britain,
and19,239 bales to the Continent, while
the stocks at all the ports, as made up this
evening, are now 238,501 bales.
The market this week has been firm
though the transactions for current deliv
ery have not been large, but for forward
delivery the movement has been excited
and more extensive than any week of the
season. An improvement in the dry goods
market has rather stimulated the spinning
demand, but shippers have held off, not
being able to fill their orders at Ihe current
rates.- For future delivery the sales re
ported reach about 7,000 bales on a
basis of 23c for low middling for Jan
uary, February and March delivery,
and 24c for middling, same delivery.
Yesterday an offer of 24c fjr 5,000
bales middliog, buyer's option, half in
January or February and half in March,
found no seller. To day Ihe sales have
been 125 bales low middling fur April
at 23c; 400 bales middling fur January at
24c; 100 bales low middling for January
at 23c; 500 bales middling New Orleans
for February at 25c, and 250 bales low
middling, February, 23c. For immediate
delivery the total sales of the week foot up
20,647 bales (including 2,120 bales to ar
rive), of which 10,065 bales were taken by
spinners, 4,575 bales on speculation, 4,767
bales for export, 1,300 in transit.
Sdpplt, Consumption, etc. The Liv
erpool cotton statement of to-day as re
ceived by ctble Bhows ihe following con
dition of supply compared with the two

jate large shipments to the continent from
r-s r - i ; T7T ;
since September to date reaching
about, lMO baleiV against about 85,900
bales last' year. ' The Bombay movement
Indicates that the shipments since October
1 to January 1 will enow- snTJEerease this,
season of about 40,000 bales over the total
of the same period last j ear. With regard
to consumption, the' probabilities are not
clearly marked. Our own manufactu
rers certainly show no disposition lo
reduce their time. Their1 stocks of
goods are very .light, while, prices
have advanced 'considerably during the
'.month, and tho indications, of a heal
thy, actiye trade for the spring are becom
ing extremely promising. The European
consumption, however, ia more uncertain.
Private cable advice to-day claim, that, the
mills wi(l soon be, and are in. fact now
being put on half time; "We should place
mora confidence in these rumors if some
thing to the same effect had not been sent
to this jido before during the month.
Besides, the fooeign goads movement of
Great Britain has been ia. amount very fa
vorable. The Board of Trade returns for
October, just issued, and givenjin our Lon
don correspondent's letter, published" to
day, show a continued increase in the ex
ports of cotton goods. Stilj there ia a
point at which the high price of cotton
will check the European consumption.
Liverpool circulars received this week all
claim it is now reached, and strongly ad
vise the immediate further and decided
reduction of the time at the mills. It is
to be hoped that the raw material will not
reach such a price as To make this resort
.necessary. It is the key to the position,
and, if adopted for a few weeks, could not
fail to affect our market very unfavorably.
But, on the other hand, with a living price

it is pretty clear that the total world's sup-

The exports of cotton this week from

Provisions We have no essential
change to note in Ihe market since our r
port of yesterday. The week ha3 been one
of increased animation, and all articles
comprised in the hoglproduct have rapidly
advanced and closes firm at our quotations,
with a still further upward tendency. Our
market thus far in the season has offered
superior inducements in this branch of
business to Southern purchasers, being
neart-r home, and compeline fully, and
often lower in pricei Ihan the more dis
tant markeU of Louisville and Cincinnati.
Packers in the West appear lo have ac
cepled the "short crop" cry of the drovers
as a fixed fact, and parties who at In
opening of the season thought it unsafe (o
operate at 6?7c, have gone into the mar
ket since with an abandon truly wonderful
when the extreme prices are considered
We copy the followUg paragraph from the
Louisville Courier-Journal, of yeslerday,
which indicates briefly the condition of
the provision market at that point :
The most important feature of the mar
kela dnrine the week has been the excite
mpnt in nroviaiona and the rapid advance
in prices. This condition of the market ia
attributed to the fact, now very generally
winredeJ. that the !hoir crop lis short.
Packers are disposed to hold for a further
advance, which, from present indications,
is verv certain to oecur: but it should be
borne in mind that there is a point beyond
which prices arrest consumption and can
aot be maintained. The probabilities are
however, that during the coming year
prices of bog products will rule unusually
The demand for dry salted meats has
takenit off nearly as fast as ady. Con
sequently there is now but little if any ba
con sufficiently cured for use, and our mar
ket therefore is slill bare of that article-.
We notice small receipts of old stock,
which is taken up as soon as it comes in to
fill delayed orders.
The demand for bulk meats is slill up lo
