Bad Time to Move.'
The'miserablr bad weather of the past -
fewtiayslisa interfered very .considerably "
with business in the city, as its tendency
has been to keep at home all except those
whose afikira would not allow tWm to re
main in-doore, and a few others -who never
mind the weather, no matter whether the
wind blows or not. The constant, and for
a time seemingly interminable rain, has
also very much dampened the holiday jol
lity of that portion of the young folks who
bad indulged lively anticipations of a ''gcjT!
and festive" Christmas time accompanying
the demise of the old year. Mortfweja
nod has seemed more likewise days jusi
before the flood than similar to th season of
genial light and h ear n ecea84ry)lo make
the world dr again. The fotracted spell
of rain and'mud has notalone interfered
withiibusinessorlomeand the pleasute
of'others. bot 'has sadly inconvenienced
'people whqtnave to move. The mere idea
of moving in such weather is enough to
lesttordinary patience beyond quiet
.Aibminaion. and the necessity of
having it to do should, if ut does not, ex
cuse the victim for the utterance of gentle
maledictions against the usage which
makes moving in this locality customary
and almost universal at the most inclem
ent season of the year. There is no good
reason why Ibis should continue. If the
city must have a general moving season, it
would be just as well fixed in April or
May as in mid-winter; and it certainly ap
nears that pleasant weather would be
greatly preferable for the usually unpleaa
ant business of pulling up home slakes and
moving household effects. He who can
and will inaugurate the desired change in
this respect, and make it general and per
manent in its character, will be a benefac
tor of his kind, and entitle himself to the
lasting gratitude of this moving comma
Iho Ratter Case.
Wo hear it said that the case of George
R. Rutter, the man charged with swindling
the State out of the school fund, nearly
half a million dollars, and who was rc-
leised at Memphis a few days since on a
writ of habeas corpus, by giving bond in the
sum of $5,000, is to be still further investi
gated by the Memphis Judge on Saturday
next, the bail having been required for his
appearance at ihat time. Datective Ryan,
of this city, who made the arrest, returned
to Memphis yesterday. The probabilities
are that the officer takes back with him
proofs and instructions not in his posses
sion at the lime of the original hearing of
the writ of release before Judee Lee. It
is thought that developments likely to be
made in the further investigation of this
cause will establish the fact that Mr. Rut
ter was not alone in the crime alleged to
have been committed by him, but had the
companiocship and aid of men not unknown
to official fame in the Stale. The truth of
crime, however ingeniously concealed for
a lime, will finally out.

A oliceman last night arrested a worthy
young man who was out on a masquerad
ing frolic. The policeman justified Ids
act by throwing himself behind the Slate
law pised for the benefit of the Kn-Klur,
and contended that he had a right under
that law of shooting down upon the street
without any warning, any man caught
with a mask upon his face. The custom
of masquerading during the holiday season
has been general for many years past, and
the Ku-Klux law was not intended to in
terfere with macqueradine parties. A
policeman entertaining such a thought as
that expressed, is a disgrace to the badge
he wears. If he suspects that a man
masked for evil intent it is his duty to ar
ret him, but if he is satisfied that he is
only out on a mission of pleasure he cer
lainly would overstep his duly by shooting
him down in the street, as he would a dog
Hannilv for the officer in ouestion. he did
not kill this lime, aud if he had so far for
got himself he would most certainly have
been tried as a fnurderer.

A strange suicide came to light in St.
Louis the other dav. In the barn of a
Mr. Clement, a stranger was found dang'
ling at the end of a rope. The "tuake-up'
of the man is the singular part of the
mysterious death mysterious because of
the locality selected and the absence of
persons or anything to identify the subject,
His apparel was all new, and consisted of
a black overcoat, buttoned up under Ihe
rliin : black sack coat aud vest ; black
pantaloons; white shirt with linen bosom
linen collar, with black silk butterfly tie
gray half-cotton undershirt and cotton
flannel drawers : calf-skin boots with green
tops; stove pipe hat and black kid gloves
he had sleeve-buttons with the navy shield
and to rap the climax, he went so far as to
procure a new rope in hU little hanging
exploit. It was certainly considerate in
Ihe ifclividual to dress up for the occanion
and leaves the impression that he was sane
enough before committing the deed to have
a thought altout a decent burial.

although taking the ground that Ihe pro

sought for some authority in equity or
law, which would warrant him in requ
ine that the aforesaid Trustees should re
fund to Dr. Elliott the amount (about
$5,000) expended by him in the improve
ment of the property. Failing to Cndany
such authority, the Chancellor simply
rwnmmpniled that the Trustees, as a mat
ler of moral obligation, refund lo Dr. El

Turned Up Agnln.
A few days ago we published an account
of Ihe mysterious disappearance of a Ger
man farmer named Fred. Burkley, from
New Albany, Indiana. After the expira
tion of a week, (during which time he was
supposed to be in theland of the hereafter,
he reappeared upon the slageof human
life at his home, on Monday last, and had
a wonderful story lo tell. He says as he
was wending his way down1 the river bank,
two men rushed up behind him, throwing
a blanket over his head, and bearing him
down to the ground. He was securely
bound, his hands being lied, and put in a
wagon, which was driven off rapidly, but.
in what direction Burkely could not tell
as the blanket was kept over his head and
face. At a late hour lhat night the wagon
was stopped, and he was laken into a house
and placed in a room having no windows,
His money was demanded, and he readily
gave up every cent he had, eighty-five dol
larx, but his captors were not satisGed and
proceeded to search his person, but found
After being confined in that place until
last Sundav nieht. he was removed the
same way that he was taken in, placed in
a wagon, and the team was driven all night,
The Ledger of that city seems to doubt his
miraculous adventure, and spoils a huge
newspaper sensation, when it says :
That Burkley had been shut up tome-
where was quite evident from his appear
ance, but there are some who are unkind
enough to hint that it was mors likely to
have been in the Louisville workhouse
than in a large house without windows,

The extravagant expenditures by some
of the city officials, as recently brought to
light by reports made to the City Council,
ha produced a good deal of interest among
tax-payers and citizens generally, and sev
eral iuformal meetings have been held to
consider the flute of a D lira. The matter
culminated to-night in a meeting com
posed of the citizens of all parlies, at
which a Municipal Reform Association
was organized, A constitution was adopt
ed which declares the object of the associ
ation to be to secure a reorganization of
the city government, regardless of politi
cal or personsal consideration', aud effect

$300,000 a day. Ihia money goes to slay.
It goes to pay for the cotton crop, and ai
i ho Hntitli i not in debt to the North it
will not come back again. In olden times
the planters, in their luxury and extrava
gance, used to live beyond their means,
and frequently bought goods and borrowul
money -in New York before the cotton wag
even put in the ground. The war has
changed all thia. Our merchants do a
strictly cash business with the South, and
the tendency among the Southerners them
selves is lo do n cosh business with each
other. The present cotton crop is, there
fore, unmortgaged. The money will be
used in great part to expand colton culture
and the other industries of the South. Of
course a portion of it will come back some
lime hence in purchase of machinery and
manufactured goods, but Ihe great bulk of
it will remain where it has gone. Tlio
hanks will cet tne money back when ihe
colton is sold to Europe. The distribution
of greenbacks over the Sooth and West
will relieve the redundtney complained of
and bring their value, eventually, to a par
with cold. The cotton crop this year is

"Ine details, therefore, or tne wonderful
strides with which this creation of new
-wealth progresses in the South are not only
of a practicalorcash interest to every
banker and merchant, but to every thought
ful friend to prozress. take, for example.
only one week's trade in cotton this sea
son, and compare the eame with that of the
corresponding period of last year, and the
whimperings of the currency-mongers for
more printing-press dollars will be silenced
by the natural growth of the real article,
or sub-stratum of all currency. This year,
one week's cotton receipts, sar 93.000 bales,
at '16 cents, produce about S-y.O-j.ouD whilst
the sime quantity last year, when
the price was only fourteen cents, realized
$5,859,000. showintr a cain lo the South
this year of over 00 tier cent, above the
price realizeU last year. The civilized
world is thus pouring into the South about
$4,000,000 a week more this year than last
for the production of cotton alone, fur
tliermore, the cotton crop of lait season was
2,431,000 bales. This season the most
careful estimates range from 2,700,000 to
3,000,000 bales. The average price of last
year, say eighteen cents per pound, made
the aeeregate amount ot the whole crop
about $195,000,000. This year, assuming
the lowest estimate U.W.UUU bales, at
cents, will roalizo about $2S0,00O,00Q. In
olber words, the ttautb, will realize lor us
cotton crop this year $S5,uUU,UOU more in
"very hard cash" than it did last year.
Moreover, last year the planters were in
debt to factors and other capitalists, who
cleaned them out of every surplus dollar of
proht. Un Ihe contrary, Ibis year the
planters are free from debt and are inde
pendent or taclors and money lenders.
They have been forced into managing
their ahaus judiciously and with the
strictest economy, so that they will now
enjoy the full amonnt of their enormous
profits Ihia year, free from deduction for
advances made to them at high rates of
interest which brought them to the verge
of destitution last year.
"Cotton is not alone the great source of
wealth in the South. The sugar crop of
.Louisiana is fast growing into another
great southern interest. This year the
crop ia estimated at 125,000 hogsheads of
sugar and 00,000 barrels ot mousses,
worth at current prices over $20,000,000,
against 38,000 hogsheads of sugar last year
and the same proportion of molasses, or,
in round figures, a total of not one-third of
the production this season. Next year it
is within bounds to say that 250,000 hogs
heads of sugar will be produced, because
the planters generally in Louisiana are re
taining a large portion of their cane for
seed. In some instances tho entire crop of
plantations has been reserved for this pur
pose. '' .
"In view of this wonderful rebound to
wards prosperity in the South, it is not
therefore surprising that Southern securi
ties are coming into great demand with
our shrewd capitalists here. Every securi
ty south of Mason and DLron'a line is at
the present time at the lowest point they
will be for yearp, perhaps forever. The
South has seen its worst days. Southern
capital will naturally seek first their own
securities for investment, even at high
prices: bit when we consider lhat at
present Ihey average only about sixty
cents on the dollar, the inducements to
buy are crcatly enhanced. With govern
ment bonds selling at ten per cent, above
par, and Southern state and municipal
bonds at about forty per cent below par, it
is not a question where the southern sur
plus capital thia year will flow. When
this surplus finds its way into the bonds of
stales like Louisiana and Alabama that
have never defaulted, then par will be
their minimum price."
