Acting Mayor Black received a tele
gram from Senator Cabbiaa, yesterday,
announcing that a special bill had passed
ihc usual readings and become a law, au
thorizing the Commissioner of Registra
tion to hold the municipal election on the
6;h of January. This settles the vexed
question of' authority in the matter satis
iactorily to all parties.
It having been insinuated by a morn
ing coteinpor iry that the Revolution Dol
lar Store is a humbug, (or a word to that
effect), we take pleasure in stating em
phatically, from our personal knowledge
and experiouiv, that such is not the case.
The best proof, however, that the insinua
tion is not true, is the immense MMMM
that Messrs. Parker A Co. have met, and
the universal satisfaction which their en
terprise has given. Such an assertion as
that referred to is but. a poor compliment
to the people of Memphis.
Bv a reference to the proper column
it w ill be seen that our friend Mai. Will
O. Woodson has announced himself as
candidate for the office of Clerk of the
County Court, or, in other words. County
Clerk. We know of no man who eould
better fill the position wilh profit and
honor to the county, and credit to him
self. Brought up inn public office simi
lar to that of County Clerk, Maj. Woodson
is thoroughly conversant with the duties
of the positiou, and would therefore be
the right man in the right place.
Some of tlie structures recently put

A new commodity in the way of

1 consigned to a Front row bouse, being
nothing else than a lame box of terrapins
shipped hither from Chicago to find a
market. Terrapin stew " is a most ex-
. ceileut dish, and in some portions of the
country is a standard one on the hotel,
I restaurant, and family tables. Conside

prepares it, however, is required to make
it tasteful I" uneduc.r.i .! palates.
We regret to have to announce the
burning of the residence of anotb.'r weil
known citizen. Rolle S. Saunders. Esq.,
which occurred yesterday morning about
12!i o'clock. The house was situated on
Wellington street, near Real, and was
owned by Mrs. Thos. Turley. Like the
tire which burned out our friends Wiggs
and Cheek, the progress of tha flames in
ibis ct. was - r 'i as in preclude th"
possibility ot saving any ot the more val
uable furniture. Indeed. Mr. Saunders
and familv barely escaped with their
clothing. We couid not learn the amount
uf the damage done.

There ought to 1k an ordinance pro- '
Diluting the driving of droves and hercta
of beef, mules and hogs through the pub-
lie t borough lares of the city. Suburban I
or slightly 1 raveled streets should be desig
tiatui by the authoilties through which :
drovers and butchers can drive thhtf ani
mals, without endangering life and limb, '
and interrupting business on the streets
to say nothing of the terror occasioned
women and children. As it is, drovers
designedly take the most traveled and
the busiest streets through which to drive
their cattle, hogs and mutos, and acci
dents and annovances are occasioned bv
them every day. We respectiuMy call the i
attention of tlie City Fathers to the fact.
Some days ago information was lodged !
at Headquarters Metropolitan Police, that
a negro named Joe Webb had robbed a
gentleman from the neighborhood of
Helena of $i, and it was supposed had
come to this city. Detectives Connel and
McCnne were put in charge of tho job,
and yesterday succeeded in arresting the
(htof ami reeorerinaa portion of the

them, amounting in all to fho. The bal

8t. Patbjtk'k Fair. The bad weather,
and the attractions in the political world
consequent upon the ward primary meet
ings, had a very natural effect upon the
attendance at St. Patrick's Fair and Fes
tival, which was inaugurated at the Mem
phis Club Hall last evening. There were
many good souls present, however, who
braved the threatening weather and the
ire of the office-seekers, to be rewarded
by the smileof beauty. The tables were
very handsomely decorated. It would be
a hard task to tell which was the most
beautiful, and we shall leave that to our
readers when tbey ylsit the hall. The ta
ble presided over by Mesdames Burns
and Asbe, assisted by Miss Mary McKeon,
Miss Uaala Kellar, Miss Williamson and
a bevy ot other fair ladies, situated on the
left of the hall, is conspicuous for a tine
display of silverware, prominent among
which is a heavy silver goblet which is to
be voted to the most popular candidate
for Mayor. The first table on the right is
in charge of Mrs. Hanson, assisted by
Mrs. Chapman, Miss Dallas, Miss While
and many other young ladies. It pre
sents a neat and tastelul appeerance and
is tilled with beautiful articles too nu
merous for us to describe. Tlie uext ta
ble on the right has been decorated in a
style that is grand aud imposing, and re
flects credit on Mrs. Roach, Mrs. Radar,
Miss Aunie Kelly and their assistants.
Saxby's quadrille band was in attend
ance, and when we left the hall nimble
feet were keeping step to its music iu the
pleasures of the dance. Tho fair will be
continued this evening.
Memphis Theater. Last niuht the
brilliant burlesque of "Lalla Rookh,-'
written by the Brothers Brough. and in
terspersed with some of the newest and
most popular airs of the day, was placed
upon the lioards of the New Memphis in
capital style. Miss Sophie as the trou
badour ernmorz was as usual, lively,
piquant, and as unctuous as ever. Miss
Irene was pretty, pleasant, and as lym
phatic as she appears to us on all occa
sions, but we are nothing, if not critical,
and we must object to the manner in
which, with the exception of Fadlniieen
(Mr. Lingard). the principal male charac
ters, were represented. Mr. Atkins is an
actor w bo on his first appearauce created
a most favorableiiupression.bat he should
remember that the chief essence of bur
lesque is earnestness an appearance of
reality in all Its extravagance, if he will
understand this, and eudeavor to infuse
into his representations a greater amount
of individuality. He has the
ability to become one of our
best " actors in his line. Mr.
! Hill should rerrain from introduc
ing extraneous words (''gags" we believe
is the proiessionai lerni' oy wuicu ne
destroys the meter of his lines, and ex
poses the trick of the stage. The remarks
are given in good faith. The advice of
Hamlet to tbe player may be conned by
burlesque representatives as well as
others, with advantage to themselves and
their audiences. There were instances iu
this representation of taking liberties
with the autjor and the audience, which
we have observed before, and the fair di
rectress will do well to restrain her actors
in their exuberance. We give this advice
in tne best spirit, for we admire Miss So

Mkmimiis, December 14, IBM,
Editors Appeal : As a voter and private
(Ullim, interested, as all our citizens are
or ought to be, in the result of the com
ing city election, I beg to submit a few
suggestions as eminently proper, and
such as, T doubt not, will govern every
right-minded delegate to t he City Conven
tion; and no other should lie in it.
1. Tbe delegates would be false to the
city if their purpose bo to represent their
own prejudices. The Convention thus
would be substantially a packed one, and
so, like so manv others of late, a disgrace
to the city and the people, and its nom
inations only to be disregarded and des
pised bv tbe" people.
2. The nominee for Mayor should bo a
first-clOJM man, for the present size and
importance of the city require and de
uiHiid such. That is to say, he should be
a man of superior intelligence, education
and mind, capable of conversing, writing
and speaking creditably to himself and
the city, officially. He must necessarily
meet, officially, intelligent strangers and
visitors; must often officially correspond,
write messtiges which the law requires,
and, in emergencies unexpectedly often,
and, on important public occasions, be
called upon, as the Chief Magistrate, to
speak for and in the name of the city.
Ho should be a man of incorruptibility,
known aud established by his whole past
life. He should le a man of firmness as
well as principle. He should 1)0 uni
formly urbane and courteous, that those
whose duty and right it may be to see
bim officially may not lie coarsely treat
ed a very important matter. He should
have no business, interests, or occupation
to prevent his attention to the high duties
of the office. He Bbould have business
qualifications, attested by the successful
management of his own affairs, and
equally requisite to those of the city.. He
should be, if possible, well acquainted
with the affairs of the city; and, if expe
rienced in them, all tho better. Nine in
ten of those who flippantly speak of these
matters cannot state correctly a half
dozen of facts concerning them. The law
requires of the Mayor to give " informa
tion " of them, and this he must, ot
course, have. He should be socially iden
tified with the community and acceptable
to it. He should be of unb'amable per
sonal and moral character, and, as such,
an ornament aud pride to tbe city and an
example to all, that none need be
ash, uned of him or his example in tins
high position, in all this he should be
the tit representative of an intelligent and
Select aud elect such a man. I name
