some pertinent and appropriate remarks on
the importance of bearing and forbearing

who have boon freed, and in their ignorance
often commit offenses they would not, if

Wi: made mention, some ten days ago, of
the robbery of a gentleman of Williamson
county, named San ford, residing near No
lensvillc, of $2,250, by a band of robbers,
fivo in number, who went to his house, en
ticed his son off, and perpetrated the crime
in his absence. On Thursday last, Wesley
Bolerjack, who resides in the "neighborhood,
of Nolensville, was arrested by Jo. Cheat
ham's detective police, and brought to this
city on their way to Franklin. During
the afternoon he was placed on the train
for Franklin, but before it started a writ of
earma was applied for by his counsel,
Guild A Smith, ami his involuntary trip

will be heard before Judge M. M. Bricn to

that tkee men are guilty, and belong to a
gang which onghtto be broken up.
Wanted Mhey. Near 12 o'clock
Thursday night as one of our citizens, who
was on his way home, n cared the corner of
Church ami Spruce streets, he was halted
by a couple of soldiers, who approached
him from the direction of the Nicholson
Howe. One of them had a gun, which he
brought to Itear on the gentleman halted,
demanded a small sum of money. "I have
none with me don't carry Uic article
often, eiipectoMy at night," was the reply,
and he started on his way again. He had
gone wit a few stops before he was com
manded to halt rm. and this time the
sharp rliok of the lock being rprong
warned him that mischief might bo in
tended. He stopped agalnand again the
small sum was demanded. He repeated his
statement wldier insisted, but in vain ;
uncocked his gun, brought it to a carry,
and told the gentleman to "move on."
Here might have been a murder or &
robbery, if the soldier, who appeared to be
qaite a youth, had beett a little mere
steeped in whisky. Ho is 011 the broad

The Congressional excursionists, who are
- " -. a...t '- J '- . 1 -
now on a vnni 10 me ouuui, ariiTcu 111 me
city Iat evening, and took up their quar
ters at the Uayoso House, there has been
a good deal of rivalry between the proprie
tors of the Gayoso and Overton, as to who
would have'the glorious pleasure of feed
ing and lodging the excnr.doni&ts. When
it was first learned that the Congressmen
would visit Memphis, Mr. R. 0. Brinkley
made arrangements with the proprietor of
the Gayoso to iurnisii aecommoaauons iur
the entire oartv. The Board of Aid irmen
next entered the field and appointed a com
mittee, made arrangements for a grand ban
quet at the Overton Hotel, and selected
several sub-committees to carry out the
nece3saix arrangements. Lender such cir
cumstances the question naturally arose,
What was to be done with the guests, and
which of the houses should be selected for
their headquarters ? Both hotels had thsir
friends, ana a war of words was the result
Atlasf a compromise was arranged, tho
visitors were to take up their residence at
the Gayoso, and banquet at the Overton.
There have been some curious incidents
connected with this visitation of law
makers. That readors abroad may under
stand how properly hospitalities of Mem
phis are extended to distinguished visitors,
it mar be well to state that there is a deal
of jealousy between Pinch and Pickering,
North and South Memphis. This feeling
is centralized about the two magnificent
hotels, the Gavoso and Overton. A citi
zen, distinguished for his munificence in
all tasks designed for the promotion of
public good, d'-emimr it proper that repre
sentatives -ot lateral powcr in an exi
gency like this, wbea the impoverished
South so much needs kindness and liber
ality, should be welcomed and hospitably
entertained this gentleman engaged
apartments and ordered an entertainment
at his own cost. This festival was to occur
at the Gayoso. When the news went
abroad, and denizens and Aldermen repre
senting North Memphis learned thes;
startling facts, there was a movement in
augurated to have the illustrious visitors
transferred from the uayoso to the Overton
Hotel. Then the war began in earnest.
Some Henry Clay came into tho arena of
strife. A compromise was proposed and
accepted. The city government agreed to
discharge duties assumed by the private
citizen, and it was arranged that the
mighty men of words and patent nostrums
for political diseases should be doubly
feted. Dinner and champagne was to be
served, first, at the Gayoso, and then
speeches, champagne and coffee, at a later
hour, at the Uverton. things moved on
swimmingly til) the train came. Then
Alderman Smith, the eloquent member
the .seventh ward, took charge of the
mighty dignitaries, and had them hauled
off to the Gayoso.
In the meantime there was a crowd
gathered at tho Overton. There was un
precedented anxiety to see the Congressmen.
Borne peoplo supposed that Thad. Stevens
"was of the party. People here would give
more to behold his face and hear him talk,
than to enter the opera house when the
Ilanlons plav the part of greased lightning.
As the crowd grew tho excitement became
intense. All the remans in l'inch were
congregated about the Overton. "An'
where is' Thad.. to be' shure ?" "An' ye's
haven't let Cockrell stale him ?" "Whar's
them Radikils?" and an infinite variety of
other exclamations made the air and hea
vens resonant with demands for the appa
rition of Congressional majesty. Mr. Wad-
dell did not think that the auair had been
properly managed. In this his auditors
concurred. Col. John Donovan rose above
the troubled sea of human heads like a
Neptune above the billows. With the
Jungs of a Stcntor he expectorated a volume
of sound that awakened the echoes from
Chelsea to the Mounds. There was a dif
ference between this speech and others
assimilated to it in noise it was sensible
to the ?as. He proposed thnt everybody
should cool oft by heating their internal
organs. The process was effected with an
ease and ingenuity that was marvellous.
Instead of Thad. Stevens, the crowd took
chained lightning, and to the hour "of go
ing to press" nobjdy, in all the domains of
Pinch, has discovered the difference.
When last heard from the distinguished
visitors had been trotted through all the
forms of courtly ctiauette br Alderman
Smith and others at the Gayoso. Weary,
travel-worn, burdened with proper concep
tions of the moral and political condition
of the South, whicli they gatheron railway
trains and u'crivo from admirably managed
aldermanic entertainments, the Congress
men slept, radically, profoundly.
Among the many handsome and valua
ble articles donated to the Orphans' Fair,
we noticed on Thursday night a glove box,
the gift of Mrs. W. M, Churchwell, made
from the wood of the sweet olive, which, to
us, possessed an interest far greater than it
would excite in the mind ot the ordinary
visitor to the fair unacquinted with its his
tory. The many friends of tho lamented
Col. Churchwell will recollect that he was
sjnt by our government in the latter part of
the administration of Mr. Buchanan to
Mexico to assist our Minister, Mr. Mcl.ear.,
in arranging some most important ques
tions with tho authorities of our sister re
public, which ho accomplished in a man
ner highly creditable to himself and satis
factorily to the government he so ably rep
resented. Although never made public, it
is believed that through the agency of Col.
C, an agreement was entered into between
Onr own and the Mexican government look
ing to the establishment of a protectorate
over Mexico by the United States, the car
rying out of which would have prevented
the war which has so long raged in that
unhappy country between the Liberalists
and the hireling soldiery of Europe. Tho
civil war which broke out in our own coun
try soon after Col. Churchwell's return pre
vented the completion of the treaty between
the two rennblics. and the matter is airain
agitating the public mind of both countries,
and will doubtless prove a most trouble
some question for adjustment. It U to be
regretted that death has deprived our gov
ernment of the splendid diplomatic abili
ties and thorough knowledge of the Mexi
can people and country which Col. Churh-
well possessed, acquired by his residence
among them. No citizen "of the United
States was ever sent on official business to
Mexico who acquired to such an extent the
confidence and respect of the leading men
of that country, including Juarez and the
prominent members of las party.
But we'havo forgotten the box, or rather
neglected to say that it was brought from
Mexico by Col. C. as a souvenir for hu
wife, and by that excellent lady donated to
the Orphans' Fair.

A Curse Changed to an Invocation.

During the session of the largest Presby
terian Synod of Georgia, held a few months
since, the question Of the relationBhiri of
the colored members of the church was in
troduced. Among the deliverances pro
mulgated was one .enjoining the duty of
regularly licensing colored preachers for
the colored folks. A brother in the chnrch,
of the African race, who had before exer
cised his gifts in elucidating the Scriptures
was one of the licensed ; and felt the en
hanced dignity of his ministerial mission.
He had been in attendance upon the session
of the Synod: and had heard a learned
white exonnder of the Word preach from
the text " If any man love not the Lord
Jesus Christ let him be anathema mara
ndlha." Moved by the fervid and forcible
manner in which the subject was treated,
he essayed to speak from the same text,,in
his first effort after being invested with due
church authority to preach. The sable
licentiate, however, gave the text a new
rendering in this wise : " If any man love
not the Lord Jesus Christ let him keep a
nabbin' and a grabbin' after him."

An Evil Requiring a Remedy. Sec
tion eleventh of chapter twenty-firat of the"
city laws saya;
" That if an person or persona shall fire
any gun or pistol, cast, throw, or fire any
squib, rocket, cracker, or other combustible
fireworks within the limits of the corpora
tion, every such person, for every such
offense, shall forfeit and payNhe sum of
five dollars," and further, proyides a penal
ty of twanty dollars for the vending of
combustibles of this character to minors.
We do not think this portion of the
city laws has been repealed ; but certainly
it u a nullity. Wo mean no reflection on
the efficiency of onr city police in the exe
cution of the laws. By tacit and common
consent, it has been permitted to go unexe
cuted. The laxity of officers in interfering
to prohibit this sport, as it is called, has not
been complained of by citizens.
We take the liberty of suggesting, how
ever, that the statute be revived if it has
been repealed, and call the attention of the
authorities to the necessity of putting a slop
to this annoying, useless and dangerous
practice. At least one quite serious occur
rence has resulted from it in the past few
days, and probably many minor ones. The
wonder is that the surgeons in the city fire
and department are not in constant requisi
tion, when everyurchin in thecity ispermit
ted to throw explosive combustibles in the
faces of persons on thestreets, and into every
place that their carelessness or recklessness
may please; and when grown men amuse
themselves by sauntering through the
streets with guns in their hands, firing them
on every corner. The safety of life, limb
and property demands a stringent law and
its rigorous enforcement, to put a stop to
this worse than foolish practice. It is a
disgrace to the city, and is not permitted
out of villages. It is wrong anywhere,
but in a city of this size it is criminal.
Let us have some measures to put a stop to
it at once.
Chancery Sales To-day. At twelre
o'clock, at the courthouse, to-day, the
Clerk and Master of the Chancery Court
will sell a large amount of unusually at
tractive property. Our readers are referred
generally to the advertisement in another

the sale of Gen. Zollicoffer'fl former resi
dence, on High street, the two store houses
on the corner of the Square and Market

acres of land near Buena Vista Springs.
The probabilities are that all this property
will go cheap, and we advise our buying
friends to be on hand promptly at twelve

Counterfeit one hundred dollar bills of
the Ohio National Bank of Cincinnati are
n circulation in Chiesgo. They are ad
mirably executed, and well calculated to
deceive. In the words '" The Union, Main
tain It," maintain is sptdled mainiuer. It
is also stated that within the past three
days three counterfeit twenty dollar notes
on the First National Bank of Portland,
Me., well executed, have been passed upon
grocery keepers of Covington, Ky.
It has been stated that Europe holds
about $500,000,000 of the 5-20 bonds ofthe
United States, which are marketable and
saleable with equal facility in Europe and
the United Slates ; nnd, owing to this fact,
says the New York World, they are practi
cally, 'certified checks for snpeie on tlio
Um ted Sales, payable, on presentation, in
gold." To show how the power thus given
to Europe, is .wielded to the disadvantage of
this country, the World states that the New
York banks, before the war, held usually
from twenty to forty million dollars of spe-cie,-andfromiMay
19 to Jane 23 of this
year the exports of specie to Europe were
$36,741, 4,4, from a demand to prevent the
suspension of tile Bank of England. Where
would the New York banks have been on
n specie basis in the faco of a foreign drain
of gold like this, obtained chiefly from the
sale of Europeans' 5-20 bonds in this mar
ket ? The following table gives the amount
of specie shipped 4rom New York for the
weeks ending on the undernoted dates in
this yeaiy f j t :
Slay 19 S3.7S3.2S6 1 June 9 -...-St.220.TCC
May 2fl... 9,421,706 Juno 16 - G.Q55.G21
June 2 O.STO.OT June 23. 1.409.109
As the demand for specie comes from
foreign bankers, Ihe amount withdrawn in
specie-paying limes is chiefly from a few
banks where the accounts of these foreign
houses are kept. If the country had been
on a specie basis last May, the banks would
have been compelled to suspend before May
2Cth from sheer inability to pay the $18,
000,000 of specie realized from the sale of
European five-twenty bonds in Now York,
and exported in the fortnight preceding
May 2G. Before suspending, the banks,
however, as usual, would have called in
their loans to an extent which would havo
knocked down tho prices of stocks at least
CO per cent., and government bonds, being
quoted in gold, would have been still lower
than they were last June, when gold was
selling at 1C9, The following table will
show the prices of government bonds in
greenbacks and gold in New York before
the Bank of England turned its "screw"
upon American credit fey- advancing its-
rates -of discount to enforce five-twenty
bonds being shipped to New York and sold
here for tho gold which Eur-spc wanted.
On May 18, 1860, the prices were :
Greenback Qold Price of
Dries. Dricp. eold.
Ten-forty bond 90 74 120
Five-twenty bonds.....101 7S
tVfter the Bank of England had forced
tis to &hip $35,000,000 of specie, the prices
of government bonds and gold on June 18,
186(5, were :
(Ireenback Qold Pricoof
price. price. gold.
... 03 65 Ita
The preceding tables show that, while
our lawful money is 01 an irredeemable
paper money basis, the Bank of England's
measures do not affect the greenback prices
at all, but only the prices in gold. The
greenback prices remain about the same,
but the gold prices of five-twenty bonds fell
from 78J on May 10 to 59 in June, being
a decline of about 30 per cent, in gold. If
we assume our interest-bearing government
debt in round numbers at $2,000,000,000,
currency, the preceding comparisons show
that the Bank of England possessed and
exercised the power, last May and June, of
knocking down the market value of our
government bonds from about $1,600,000,
000, in gold, to about $1,200,000,000 a re
duction of $400,000,000, in gold, in the
space of six weeks. Fortunately for the
government, banking and commercial in
terests of the United States, our lawful
money was not then redeemable in specie,
but gold was then a commodity, like cot
ton, which we produced and held for Bale
to foreigners. The export and purchase of
$36,000,000 of gold from May 19 to June
23 of this year acted on the New York
money market precisely the same as if we
had exported and sold for cash to foreign
ers $26,000,000 of cotton, or any other
American produce. The sale and export
of the gold commodity, therefore, produced
increased ease in our money market last May
and June, by making the greenback bal
ances of the foreign1 bankers and others, the
propcity of American citizens, who owned
the gold whick foreigners had bought, paid
for in cash; and exported.
The remedy for this power for evil, which
we hnvo placed in the hands of Europe to
drain us of our specio whenever its necessi
ties may require, is the passage by Con-
1-gress of a law providing for the exchange
of similar amount of bonds, principal and
interest payable in Europe, and in the law
ful ourreney of the countries where the
bonds are made payable.
