Dow, Secre tary and Treasurer of the Dry-Docs. Com pany, was t n ered and robbed of fSOO in oicnev, and valuables to the amount of two or three hundred dollars more. It will also be remembered that pub lished a statement made by one of tbe burglars, afterward arrested, bow he waa robbed by nno of bis " pals." and left penniless. The case waa put in the hands of detective McCune and Connell, who have since pursued it moat iiideiatteably. Dy-before-yesterday they learnno that the robbers wore In the city, having been drawn hither, like the balance of the crowd of thieves and swell-mob now in town, by the chance of plunder during tbe interregnum pending tlie installation of the new police. They immediately set their lines for them, and succeeded iu ar resting tbem in Britton's saloon, a cellar on Front Ko w, near Jefferson street, do ring Monday evening. They proved to be the notorious Tom Wilson, aliat Smith, alias English Tom, and Ben Sipling. They were taken to lhe Adam9 street station and locked up. We are informed by delective McCune that orders were given lo have them placed in separate cells; but instead of this, they were put in a notoriously insecure room al the head ol the stairs together. Yesterdav morning when they were wanted tbey were not to be fouud. An examination of the premises showed that they had made their escape by pry ing off the boards, secure." nailed and bolted over tbe transom, and forcing the bars of the iron door leading into the b ick yard of tbe stationbouse, (which is cov ered, and is simply a room without i floor). Thev then leaped from the bead of the stairs (leading from this door to the ground) on to the lop of tne water-closets, over which thev walked to tne rear wan. which is of brick and eighteen inches thick. This they dug through, and crawl ing out of the hole dropped to the ground in the rear of the building. After a careful examination of the grounds we assert, most emphatically. that the escatie could not possiulv have occurred without the connivance und aid of some one or more of the police force on guard at the time. The thing is an abso lute impossibility, audshouia Oeinslaniiv investigated. The boards fastened overtho transom. inside the building, could not have been removed without the aid of pow erful tools, and the process of mov ing them must have made considera ble noise. Not only that, but from the manner in which they were fastened on, they would have to be worked at from 6o(A sides. The prisoners eou Id only get at one side who took off the outtide board t It is not likely that any pals of these men would dig through the back wall and break into the statiouhouse to get them out and if they did, the work of culling a hole through a brick-and-a-half wall must have occupied some hours, and made a great deal of noise. Again, the boards that were forced off the transom were nowhere to be found yeterday morning. Js H likely that the escaping burglars would trouble them selves to lug off two heavy pine boards, each four feet long by twelve inches broad, and two thick? It i suggested by tho detectives that they were burned in tbe stove in the oEBoe. This is the only reasonable supposition in explanation Ot tbe matter. Meanwhile, detectives Connell and McCune, who have spent so much time and labor iu running tueaa rascals to earth, are much chaKriued and nettled at this affair, and are determined to sift it to the bottom. While we wish to no do man an Injury, and would suspect no man vrongiully, we would still ask Chief O'Donnell to or der a rigid examination tatt this affair. Ii is the universal opinion expressed by every one with whom we conversed yes terday, that the whole affair was planned and executed iu the stationhousb. GONE UP. . Combs. Jr., Plays the Confidence Game. He is Caught and Sent to Jail. M. Combs, Jr., has come to grief. A day or two ago Mr. Combs went to the barroom of Mr. Capdeville, on the corner of Beal and Second streets, and drank Mr. C.'e whisky to the extent of one dol lar and fifteen oen Is worth. To pay for this, he presented a check on the Citizens liank for tl5, remarking that it was after banking hours, and be would like a little chance. Mr. Capdevllle gave him the chanee and Combs departed, but the next morning on presenting the check at tbe bank it was not honored Mr. Combs hav ing forgotten tbe little formality of de positing funds there to meet It. Capdevllle went immediately to 'Squire Gridath's otfloe, and got out a warrant for Combs on charge of "obtaining money under false pretenses," but the latter beard of the warrant berbre it was served, and hurried down to him and paid the money, explaining the circumstance of the protest by saying that be had bor rowed the check from some one, and having forgotten to look to see what bank it was on before issuing it. had given it on tbe wrong bank. Mr. Capdevilla accepted the apology and withdrew the suit. Combs, however, only stepped out of one scrape into another. Yesterday a Mr. Ot, E. Bateman, an ex-Federal soldier from Paducah, Ky., who three years ago had left his clnioxs for bounty and pay with him to coll e?t, came to the city lo look after his money. On calling and asking for the sum due him. Combs replied that it had not yet been collected, and pnt Bateman off with some specious excuse, which satisfied him. As Bateman was about leaving the office. Combs asked him to lend him $50 on a check on the Citizens Bank, telling nun that ne could casn tne same as bo went down to the steamer, on which he was about to return to Paducah. Mr. Bateman, without hesitation, advanced the sum required and took the check. On calling at the bank, some hours afterward, he was informed that Mr. Combs had money there, but had instructed tbem not to pay that particular check, as " tbe consideration for which it had been given had failed I" Mr. Bateman on hearing this returned to the office to hunt Combs and get an ex planation, but did not find him. Learn ing of the recent trick to Capdeville, he went to 'Squire Millard's and got out a warrant tor couiD s arrest on tne same old charge of "obtaining money u nder false pretenses." The gay Lothario was im mediately arrested, and on trial was sent to the Criminal Court undertwo thousand dollars bail. Visits to the various scalla wags and others of his acquaintance around town, failed to find the requisite bondmen, and after trying in vain to bribe Mr. Arata (the officer in charge of him) to let him stay in his own room last night, Combs was obliged to go to Jail. On arriving at the gate of tuts institu tion to which he has helped to oousign numerous parties, and of which, if public opinion be any criterion, he ought long since to have been an inmate, he set up a snivel about being the first of the Combs family ever Jugged, and acted as if he wanted to break and run. Mr. Arata soon convinced him that such an attempt would not ne r.oaitcv. auu ne wa in duced, though reluctantly, to enter those uark and gloomy pona's. His name was registered and he was about being escorted to his quarters when he made a holt for the irate, qui oul.t not get out, being brought back and consigned to close quarters. CM rruMic.

Ralph Shot by Unknown Assassins. On Mqpday night last Jno. L. Ralph, a highly respected farmer and citizen ol Tipton county.was murdered by unknown assassins. The Tipton Recor or Friday gives a leugthy account or the affair, from which we make the following ex tract: "It seems, from wlutt we can gather, that Mr. Kilpli was shot while at tending lo some clock in the yard, and no ono was seen to do the deed. The very natural qneslion that suggests Itself to the mind is, who did the shooting? Tha question may be answered, shrouded although the murder seems to be in mys tery, to answer it we win go back little: For the past year or so many of our readers will remember our articles on the band of horse thieves and counter feiters that have held a high carnival of crime lu this and the river b"ll of e un ties during the time mentioned. Some of this clan, Bill Siallious, Tom Clem and perhaps others, stole a very valuable mule from Mr. Kalph last winter; he ana moat vigilant in his search for the thieves, never resting night or day until be found tbem, spending in tbe meantime some thousand or fifteen hundred dollars lu searching for ihetn, and he succeeded in having ono of their number arrested and brought to Justice. The riugloadnr, Tom Clements, than whom there lives no greater scamp, was tried ai tha last term of the Circuit Court, and although there were plenty of willing witnesses to prove an alibi, he was convicted aud sentup for tun years; ha appealed to the Supreme Court, and before ho was sent to Browns ville, through the negligence of officials, made bis escape, with other prisoners who were confined with him, among them one J. C. Bradford, who also belonged to tbe same clan. Mm the escape of these prisoners Mr. Kalph has been in constant dread of having his life taken, and came to see us sometime since about certain threats that had come to his ears. And although it was reported by the friends ol Clements that he had left the Slate, yet we have it from good authority that he has never for any length of time been absent frnnrthe county, but that be and some of bis party have been harbored by friends living below Randolph, and that he and some of his men have been in the habit of crossing the river at Island 37 continually."

Of his birlh and parentage but little is known. But it bas been ascertained that be began life considerably farther nor'b as a stable boy. and afterward rose to the business of shoeing mules. From this time he progressed with such rapidity lhat he soon got to be a doctor, graduat ing at some school secluded enongh to make study easy. He then settietl in Washington county, Mississippi, and be gan practice. At the begiuuiug of the war, though intensely Union in senti ment, when it came to being an infantry or cavalry soldier In defense of the "old flag." tbe doctor couldn't see it, but fol lowed the army and took a jaorfar in his. At the close of the war h settled in Memphis, where he borrowed two thou sand dollars from a respectable yonng lady, destroyed her happiness "under promise ot marriage, and caused hr to become an inmateof the lunatic asylum, where she has si nee died. Afterward he came back to this State, assumed the role of Revenue Assessor, was appointei be Ati.es Probate Judge, member Board f Police, Registrar, and several other things We have not space to give a min ute aocount of his conduct while here; suffice it tn say lhat he excelled in super intending tbe issuance of county war rants, held fast to all that he got hold of, sampled the contents of a wbiskv barrel with unexampled dexterity, and in all things played a bully Aasid. When he c-included to depart, he did not wait for the stage coach, but went off in the night, leaving the proprietor of ihe hoUl, at which bo hoarded, and his washwoman, in the lurch.

Graham, tbe author gives an explanation of the phrase, " nine tailors make a man." In the olden time the strokes of the pass ing bell were called "tellers," and as nine such strokes Indicated tbe death of a man, while three nunounced that of a child, and six that of a woman, the words nine tellers " were easily perverted into nine tailors. To-morrow will decid the fate of many an aspiring politician, who thinks that he alone can save tbe county from going to ruin. Few will be bold enough to run against the nominations ot the Convention, aud as there are now at leas: an average of six candidates for every va cant office, there will be much disappoint ment and dissa'. is faction wi:b the Con vention. Squally times may therefore ba expected. By a reference to onr advertising ool nmns it will be seen that tbe Memphis Immigration Association has at last got to work, and received their first installment of Scandinavian laborers yesterday. The lot numbers only thirty-nine, but s hun dred and fifty more are on their way all hearty, hale looking fellows, and Just the sort of men we want. Messrs. Allen Brothers, proprietors of the Commercial Hotel, are the agents of the Association, and will receive orders for labor in any amount, call on them at once. It is said by those aequsinted with the trade, that there less lumber sold in Memphis than in any other city of Its siz in the United Stales. The reasons for ibis are not very clear, but we suppose tbe "fire laws." which forbid the building of wooden buildings within certain limits are the main eiuse. On th whole, how ever, while this prohibition results disas trously to lumber meichan's, we think that It is to the general good of the com munity. There are fewer disastrous fires here than in any city of its size in the country. Among the candidates who will come before the Convention to-morrow for ihe office of Clerk of the Circuit Court is Col. M. D. L Stewart, the present in cumbent. While we are not in favor of trying: to forestall publio opinion, or to Influence the Convention, we cannot bat express our sincere hope that Col Stew art will be renominated for the position which he has so long held with credit to himself, and honor an I profit to lhe com munity in general. His claims on the party are too well known to need to be called to tbe mind of the Convention. He has been the " wheel horse " of the Democracy of Shelby county, giving his time and his unney to disenthrall us. Let as not now forget bimt RIVERS. WEATHER AN0 BUSINESS. M km puts Gas Works.

Capt. A. B. 'haw has sold the Arkansas to tne New Orleans and While River Packet Company for -.n 1.1. sne js to run iu couneciioii with tbeSeminoin and f irm a through line from White river to N-w Orleans. The Seminole went inio lae trade last December, and has carried out several full loads of cotton and good up frciihta. This linn will not do Mem phis any Knd. The Belle Memphis has been put in ele gant order, and is preparing to leave Cairo fir St. Louis, to cuter the lists between lhat port and our city. The freigh' list of the Ladv Gav footed up j8i',i00, and was insured for that sum. Tue boat lies within loO .vards of shore, just above Preaton. on Union Point, ca reened so that the water is on the boiler deck. The obstruction which sunk her is the same that sunk the Arthur, aud caused other mischief. It is an old tree with lis roots attaeued. It lies quartering crossways of the river, an what used io be the head of a dry bar. Below it the bar ha-Jbeen cut away, and the channel has uuiieratone impor.aul ahangea. Only a p in of her cai go can be saved, isi a dam aged to idition. It is barely possible lhat the boat can be raised. It is stated thai the Northern anil Northwestern Packet lines have about consummated an arrangement for a five years' partnership. Each company agrees to put up $5u,000 forfeit for carrying out the contract. Cbas. F.
