The Board of Mavor and Aldermen i-onvened at the City Hall yesterday . veiling, for the regular monthly transac tion of business. The Board was called to order by Presi dent Swayne, who took the chair. The roll being called and a quorum an nounced, the secretary proceeded to road the minutes of the previous regular and called meetings, which were found correct And approved. The Secretary then read the following JiES-AliK I It'lM THE MAYOR. Mayok's )Kt ii K, City Hall, ) ii em puis, Dec. 7. 18f. j Hon. Board of Aldermen: i.:.t .,.: I in n w th transmit to you a oommnnication from his honor Mayor Leftwich, in relation to the sale of the city's stuck in the Memphis aud Little Rock Railroad. The city's interest in i hat road has. as yuti are ivarc, recently NMM somewhat complicated, and the situation is at present by no means sat is faetory to the friends of the enterprise. Vour consideration of the accompanying "oiiiinunii'a'.ton, as well as thegeneral con dition of affairs connected with the Little rtock Koad, is respecifuUy invited. I would also call your attention to tlie-ac-cotnpanying communication of the City ! Tax Collector in relation to the abatement of the penalty and recoumeud that his Miggclion be lulopteil. Respect fully, WM. BLACK. Mayor pro tern. MAYOR LKKTUICH's I OMM fMCATIO.X. Lyni-hbuim), 'a., Dec, 3, 1H6!'. Hon. Win. UlncJc, JnoV pro tem., Mt in pttis, Ten.: Sir: Belore leaving Memphis several Aldermen and mvself were allowed to read and consider a very important com- o.i 'ii i. "Hi I. ' ifi'il, tilt: President of the Memphis and El Memphis Hud Paso Railroad, u Mr. Brinklov, in which, though conceding that inducements are hld forth to induce him to select another point of departure .rom the Mississippi river for the Kl Paso Railroad. Ho frankly confesses his pref erence for Memphis, and as an evidence of ms desire to secure lasting harmony be- ' ween t he ciiy o Memphis and the Kl I'aso road, author:. -s Mr. Isrinkley to carry out his (Mr. Fpperson'si original proposition to puroha.se the city"s stock in the Little Bock Railroad. Siuce that time I have met and con versed with DHf gentlemen of intelli gence aud foresight, who are largely in- i teres Led in the railroads that connect j Memphis with the Atlantic ocean at Nor- folk, and who express the fear that we i underrate the influences that are at work to induce Col. Epjierson to select for tho El Paso road, a point of departure south atf Memphis; hence, prompted by a mu- i tual and recognized interest, th?y urge j that Memphis should make an v reasona ble concession, or even sacrifioe to secure the harmony now sought for by Col. Ep person. Gen. Mahone. the President of three railroads, comprising the. Air Line, be tween Memphis and Norfolk, .ind who, above all others, has impressed me as ios sessing a most comprehensive railroad mind, and a clear comprebensii m of the immense advantages derivable rom ex ' : - ve railroad combinations, sa vs. with his convincing force, " ) Memphis can well afford to give a way its stock in the Little Rock Rail road if thereby either an early com pletion of llie road i i tired, or t.h influ ence is exerted in behalf of the HI Paso road, with Memphis as its starting- point from the Mississippi. The stock was taken bv the rtv with the sole purpose of securing a direct r.iil- j road l oiiuiiunication with Little Roc k. and without any hoje that it wouid ever prove otherwise valuable; but by the salt' at '.his time we accomplish our original purpose in the completion of the road, which will liius be enabled to provide for the pavment of the $:'..kj,0O0 in bonds en dorsed by the city, ami besides getting the g loo.i it i in inoiiev, we not onlv esmm- tribute to the building of a railroad" to the l'aciln-ocYuu, tiui insure the selection of Memphis as its Initial point. The cash realized would enable us to pay two large debts now due, and thus save the city the large collaterals with which they are secured, and provide menus aisu ur uic payment ot the fire men, the street force and other city em ployees, and many small but meritorious and pressing claims all of which at this important crisis would enhance the city's criKlit. more than double that amount would ai any other time The fact thai M. Epperson's purchase id one million of stouk from President i Itrinkley, gives him a controlling interest in the management of this road without H -ock owned by the city commends the proposition for its liberality to every citi zen and friend of Memphis for all con cede that is value depended on its con trol ung influence, while it should, and no doubt will, dissipate, the idea, quite prevalent at the liinu, lhat this stock was issued and sold with a view to depreciate that owned by the city. These questions are of .such magnitude, and the argu ments in their favor so unanswerable, that I indulge in the hope that the Bonrd of Aldermen, without a dissenting voice will favor the immediate sale, lest other complications Miould arise to positively j-t-l l.icinril L l, jHCIflll l. XiU JOU Pres?"1 th" communication to i ne nexr meeting ot i'ic IUn of Al dermen, aud if consistent with your own views, ask that its rei-ommend'ations be adojMcd at the next meeting? While at Washington I will be near enough to Col. Epperson to see him Ln person at any time that von or Hie Board of Aldermen may . i ..n, u desirable. Yours, very resp-ct fuilv, etc.. JNO. W.

We that love good meats j know in days of vore Charley always kept the best." His beef, pork and matton i was always the choicest the stock yards afforded. One great specialty of t bar ley's was his fine corned beef "and pickled pork. He has spared no expense, and when we see him, with his genial 6e8 cut ting a steak or making us a chop, we know it is the best. He buys no poor cat tle ; does his own butchering, and offers to a Memphis public just what we want. In the vegetable line you can find every thing hi fact, a market all complete, with most gentlemanly attendants. Ladies leave ihcir baskets and orders, and on their return home find their rfiarketing there. A word to the wise is sufficient. Enterprise and perseverance are bound to succeed.

Pritchard died at 2 o'clock a. in. after only a short illness of inflamatlon of the stomach. We will giye notice of the funeral in to-morrow's paper. About 10 o'clock last night the negro chambermaid, Sophie, of the steamer Marcella, jumped overboard, evidently with the intention of committing suioide, ami was drowned. She had had MUM dif ficulty with her husband, which had ap parently bereft her of her mind. The Hebrew Fair was again well at tended last night, and the room presented a brilliant scene. We must again apolo gize to the ladies for seeming neglect, pleading as excuse the press of other mat ter. The attendance will, no doubt, in crease nightly, and the receipts be abund antly equal to tho expectations of the la dies. We are pleased to state that the revi val still continues at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and that the ser vices are conducted by Rev. Dr. McDon ald, a gentleman who lias been unusually successful in his efforts in behalf of church extension. The church Is well at tended nightly, and we hope will be so long as tho revival continues, and that will, we know, be every night this week. We learn by private advices that there was a tremendous excitement in the re gion of Skull Bone, in this State, yester day. The circumstances are briefly, that two desperate characters named "Grant and White, from the Skull Bone neigh- hood, night before last visited the placo of a widow named Hurd, to rob her hen roost. While they were performing this feat, her son, a youth of sixteen, bearing the noise, arose and came to the door. As soon as he appeared they fired on him and killed him. 1'ho whole neighberhoinl n soon roused, and were pursuing the mur derers all day yesterday. Up to a late hour last night they had not been caught. The soiree tbtnxantc to be given by the Confederate Relief Association to-morrow-night at the Overton Hotel bids fair to be the most brilliant thing of the sort given in Memphis in many a day. The highest praise is due to the Standing Committee fon Amusements for the manner in which I the alfair was conceived and has been nana el thus iar. r.x-rrcsiuem navts has we understand signified his accept ance of the invitation to be present, and ladies who are the recipients of cartes should esteem them very nighly.

Strike, and is A Practitioner at the Bar Arraigned Before the Bar of Justice. The matter of tho state Stryker, attornoy at law, etc, vs. J. W. c, for obtain ences, was de- iarv examina- ing money under fa cided, so far as the tion goes, vesterdav morniug by .Squire Kiernan bonding Stryker over to appear at the next term of the Criminal Court, under Ismda in the sum of 20U0. The case ia one which we havo noticed before, uix win. u mis .nil a. ten cousiueraDie at tention lately, not only in police circles, but as being one which involves various other charges, and may be a prettv big allair. The facts are simply these: On I thedoclcet or 'Squire Home, of 180041, ; which fell by legiilmato succession into HM hands of 'Squire Creighton, ! and from him descended to i 'Sijuire Foley, were various judgments, executions, etc., which, owing to the un settled condition of the country since that period, had never beon collet-tod. Stry- j ker, occuping the same office with 'Squire ! Foley, chanced to find this fact out, and i thereby to .his eagle eye was revealed a i chance to make a "spec." We understand, j and from good authority, that he first ap- j proached 'Squire Foley with an offer to ! make out and collect these various sums, he and Foley sharing the proceeds of the same. This offer 'Squire Foley, as be came an honest man, indignantly spurned, and refused in toto to have anything to do : wnti o iiciaiious a irausaciiou. iNotn ing daunted, Stryker determined to strike for himself, 'and accordingly at every opportunity went through the oooks, a .u maae memoranda and ab- ; !XE hi SZTtnTZZ aA.mD thor' TJ LT,einWaS a J,,um,ent m for $20, given in 1800. This he presented, , as the testimony went to show, to Selig- j man, and tho latter rather than have any controversy about the matter agreed to Mr? him a certain sum, for which sum ; Stryker by his striker agreed to accept i and did aooept, ami gave a receipt for tho : same, signing for it. as the attorney for j Mrs. Jemison, the executrix of Robert j Jemison, the assignee of the firm of Jemison & Bro. Mrs. Jemison never got j a cent of the money, and by some means, j not necessary here "to relate, became cog- i nizant of the alfair, and commenced airing inquiries inlo the matter. The i rZ a.,." . j . 7 . , nL .! " result was a warrant tor Stryker for ob taining money under false" pretences. l uo matter was immediately brought up for examination before 'Squire Foiev, on Saturday last. Stryker claimed to "have ' acted under authority from Mrs. Jemi OS: and, rather than "have any difficult v about the matter, and bring that lady into a magistrate's com t, her attorney agreed not to prosecute the case. Stryker got j his back up, however, and under the garb i of injured innocence, refused to let the matter drop thus, declaring that he would go into an examination and come ' out "as becomes an honest man." A change of venue was obtained from Fole3- to Kieruan, and on Monday the case was examined. Mrs. Jemison's tea- i timony raa to the effect that on the l:!th i of Sapt;-inber last a man came to her 1 house and informed her that an attorney ! in the city knew where there was an exe- ' cution in favor of her late husband, on i which he could collect some money, iftsVr irotilil gii e him half of the proceeds. She refused to give him any authority to act , in the matter, and he departed. She nev- ' or heard of him or the money afterward. Styker tried to prove that he had com- promised the matter with Seligman, with a Mrs. Jemison's authority, for that he had volunteered to send her that sum i of money, but the constable wouldn't take it, etc., etc. The constable, on being ex-i amined, testified to having collected $15, : and charged i5 for doing so, giving St rvker ! $10. That isthe last evorheardof the $lu. It was proved oonclnsiv. lv, first, that Stry- ! ker had uo authority on earth to collect ; the money: second, that he signed him- raelf as the attornev of Mrs. Jemison wiLh- out authority, and third, that he never i made any returns for the money he did collect. Of course he was "sent up." Wo ; understand there are ten other similar ; cases, and that 'Squire Foley says there are at least 12000 involved in similar tran sactions of thi-s individual. We hope that justice may be done, aud that the devil j and tho jailor may have their dae. AMUSEMENTS. Memtiiis Th k at::k. The public wero evidently anxious to witness the enter-, tainiWBBI ofl'ered by the Worrell Sisters, and we can venture to say that 110 one left regrettingahelr visit to t lie New Memj.his. Tne audience was ijuite large, brilliant and ajijir ci itivc. The sisters, Sophie and Irene, hit their taste to a charm. Sophie ; is all life and vivacity, abandoning her- selt to the character with such earnestness that she immediately impregnates the j audience with her own mirth and spirit, j and leads them away from " the carking cares of the world " to enjoy an hour of! delightful forgetfulness, while Irepe, : with a charming, winning softness, steals her way into their favor and maintains it. j The songs, duetts, dances, jokes, hits at men and manners, seemed all to be heart- ; ily enjoyed. The young lady. Miss Will- j morr, wo believe, who tilled "he character of Licur le Boixsey, won many friends by her charming singing and dancing. The i (ueen Catharine of Mr. Atkins wasirre- j si-tibly funny, without vulgarity. Tho same may be said of Mr. Hill's Henry and Mr. Lingard's t'rami.i. Tbc burlesque is full of life, fun, good danciugand music, and if laughter and applause indicate sue- 1 onss, then "The Field 01' the Cloth of Gold" was one, and will till the house to-night to overllowing.
