COSmTNICATtOX PROM MAYOR AND CITY ATTORNEY. The Mayor and City Attorney, to whom was referred the proposition of T. W. Brown, Esq., President of tbe Memphis Water Company, respectfully recommend its rejection, for the following, among other reasons : 1. The large outlay for the surveys, msps, estimates, etc,, referred to in the proposition, was made with tbe bona fide intention, on the part of the city govern ment, to erect at tbe proper time suitable water works, under the powers contained in her charter. This purpose the city haa not abandoned, and the undersigned aee no reason wny it snouiu ue now aoan doned, and all control of so essential a public convenience as the supply of water to the people surrendered to a ptivate company. 2. f the sale was (lesjrabl in itself, the terms are too indefinite, and too liable to misunderstanding and litigation to merit our approval.

There is iso meningitis in this citv, dee pile tbe invidious reports so industri ously circulated to tbe contrary. We have asked the question of slmost every Eromlnent physicisn in the city, and a alf dozen ot them declared to us that they bad as yet not had a case of this pe culiar and terrible disease. The County Court yesterday, af ter long and wise deliberation, deter mined to declare the late magisterial elec tion nun auu void, anu to oraer a new Memphis Theater. "Set iu Gold" was repeated last night for a third time to a good hiuse. Mr. and Mrs. Watkins continue to win golden opinions for themselves. To nigat we have "Norah O'NeiL" Father Walsh's Fair. There was a very large attendance at tbe Memphis Club Hall last evening, snd the ladies look advantage of it by soliciting chances 111 tne most charming manner possible. The hall presented s lovely sight when we visit ited it, about 10 o'clock. The band had just struck up a quadrille; handsome ly dressed ladies, with their attendants, were gliding through the different figures of the dance; the tastefully decorated tables flashed with tbe many choice arti cles exposed to view; while the chsnde liers threw a flood of light on all com pleting a spectacle ibst would please sny person with sn eye for the beautiful. The polls were opened with due formality, and voting is now in order for the various val uable prises thst arc to be awarded t tbe most popular candidate at tbe ensuing judicial election, tbe faiorite Captain of police, and for tbe in wt efficient Engi neer of the fire department. The greatest freed-.in in voting; will be observed, no restrictions being mad on account of age or sex, and no challenge allowed. The festival is to be continued for two nights longer, and the worthy object in view thst of building a church where one Is needed badly -will, we hope, meet with a liberal response from our citizens.

This decision fell like a bomb- I looked for by the little folks, will be here rneu among tne contestants, and we haven't seen oneof them yet that was sat isfied with it. Tbe most centrally located market Is I bat at No. 68 Jefferson street, latel y opened by Messrs. Oppenbeimer A Hocb- stadter (Charley Williams' old standi, where the best of everything in the way of fresh meats, vegetables, poultry, etc, can found at all times. As policeman Baker was about to ar rest Be. Stokes, a negro, for stealing some clothing last night, Jim Connors, tbe partner of the latter, drew a razor and made a murderous assault on Baker. He was captured, however, betore he bad a nance to do any harm, and lodged in tbe calaboose. We understand that s new sporting sensation is on the tapis uo less than s prise fight between a couple of stalwart uegroes. One of tbe pugilistic mokes sailed upon the local editor day before yesterilay to get him to write s challeuge for him. and yesterdsy we were informed that it was accepted. ' Fun is in prospect for the initiated ! The oyster season is definitely over, in despite of the late cold snsp, snd fine lunches are becoming the order of the day in first-class bar-rooms. Mr. Vincent Hotto, recognizing this fact, sets s splen did lunch every morning, at the corner of Washington arid Front (Madam Vincent's old place), from ten till two. The same good liquors, fine cigars, etc , as of old, always to be found at the bar. CoL W. H. Stephens has been selected by the committee of the Confederate Re lief and Historical Society to deliver tbe address on the occasion of laying the cor ner stone of tbe monument to be erected in Elmwood oemetery to the memory of tbe Confederate dead", tbe ceremonies to lake place on Saturday next immediately after the close of the floral celebration. The game ft between tbe famous incinnati KeJ S ... kinga and tbe Green Stockings, of this city, at the race track yesterday evening, show our bovs to be decidedly green. Not enough interest is excited in this region by tbe national game to make it worth our while to give a detailed report of the game. When we say that tbe score was loo for tbe Reds to 2 for the Greens, we express the whole thing. Tbe pupils of Miss Carrie Mahonev's school will give s "cantata" at the Assem bly hsll, on Main atree, to-morrow even ing. Tbe programme is before us, and we must say promises much for the enjoy ment of l bos who rusv be in attendance. We hope that since tbe tickets are only twenty-five cenU the hall vill beexowded by tbe friends of tbe little ones who are to participate in this holiday affair. We have received from Messrs. W. N. Oickenson dr Co., No. 76 John street. New Y'ork.oneof their illustrated catalogues of mathematical instruments and en gineers' materials. The catalogue is very wmplete, and as establishments for the manufacture of such articles are very rare in thia country we recommend ail those who are in need of such an ides to send for a copy at thia elegantly gotten up I ,Ev"rr instrument that can p!ed" a 'a'iD' " and open on the Blurt to-day. See tbe placards and small bills for particulars. The vast caravan of riders and living ani mals will march through our streets to day, and will give an idea of magnificence not equaled by any story told in the Arabian Nights. This is. without doubt. the best company in tbe L'uion,and being a Southern one we view it with more than tbe usual degree of pleasure. They have, we are glad to learn, bail a suo-easful tour along the New Orleans and Jackson, Mis sissippi Central and Mississippi snd Tennessee Railroads, siuce they left tbe Crescent City, and have played to unsurpassed audiences. Speak ing of this circus, an exchange says that Colonel Ames has, perhaps, the finest collection of living wild animals ever brought together. The wonderful mio, an oriental beast, seventeen feet high, and somewhat resembling s camel, is in tbe collection; also a magnificent herd of camels, superior to any heretofore ex hibited in the United States. Some of the principal animals tbat will be seen under Colonel Ames' immense pavilion are the penorming elephant " Bismarck, ' intro duced by his trainer, Mr. Johnson, the great elephant hunter; a baby elephant, the smsllest ever seen iu this country; Herr Lingell'a dens of trained tigers, leopards ana cougers; a Russian elk of immense proportions; a roval Bengal ti ger; a vicious gorilla, or man monkey; a white bear; a pair of cub lions; a grizzly bear that weighs sixteen hundred pouuds in his stockings; and an endless variety of monkeys, apes, and other animals too numerous to mention. The circus is one of the lsrgest in the country, and in outfit is one of the most complete shows ever put under canvas. Strawberry Festival. The young ladies of the F rst Presbyterian Church propose to give a Strawberry Festival and Fair over Rocco's, at the corner of Second and Madison streets, which is to commence on Wednesday, the 18:h day of May next. Tbe object proposed is to build s "manse for the pastor. Rev. F. Bowman, on the beautiful vacant lot by the aide of the church edifice. Tbey are making auch extensive preparations as are necessary at the commencement ef a great war. Tbey have no notion of im itating tbe Confederates, who pitched in on their spunk with rusty muskets and pikes. They might well depend on their own sweet asulabillty, grace and beauty tor success, nut they propose to crown sll with flowers and the most superb decora tions snd works of art, and besides to give all visitors and friends in everything on aale the lull worth of their money. May ample success attend their under taking. BOCTH MARK FT MASTER'S REPORT. Honorable Board of Aldermen: Oentlemen: My collections for the month of April amounted to $471 lo. Respectfully, C.

Gallawayd: Co., city print'g $281 50 At nine o'clock yesterday tbe Methodist quadrieunial Convention, sitting In the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of this city, was called to order. The venerable Bishop Andrews, Bishops Ksvanagb, Pierce, Paine, Marvin, Daggett and Wightman occupied tbe platform. Bishop Paine, of Mississippi, rend tbe 26oth hymn, beginning "Draw near, Oh! Son of God, draw near," which was sung witn deep reeling by tbe assembly. Bishop Kavanagb, of Kentucky, pro nounced a prayer fall of fervid eloquence. Bishop Pierce, of Georgia, read tne 62d chapter of Isaiah, and Bishop W ight man, of South Carolina, as the second lesson, tbe 20th chapter of Acts. In s manner most effective, and with intonations of voice almost inimitable. Bishop liaeifett. of Virginia, read a beautiful hymn. The veneraiue Dr. aiouroe, or Missouri, whose strongly marked features and white hair and beard gave him the appearance, as cribed to Moses, pronounced an earn est prayer, which excited responses at intervals from tbe whole audience. Dr. Thomas O. Summers, of Nashville. elected Secretary by acclamation, was re quested to designate his assistants. He named lr. .J. S. Martin, ot Baltimore. Colonel Lester, a lay delegate from Southern Georgia, and Dr. Wickersham. of Arkansas. Dr. Shipp, President of a colleare in South Caroliua, moved tbe adoption of tbe rules of tne last General Conference. Tbe rules were read and 4uJopted. It was proposed tbat the members of each delegation should ait together, lor purposes or consultation, and that eaih member might be readily recognized bv tbe presiding Bishop. Dr. McFerrin opposed the proposition, but was not, at the moment, recognized by Bishop Paine. Dr. McFerrin announced his name, and. from tbe mtrtbfuluess ex cited, it seemed that tbe audience thought it singular that Iw. McFerrin's strongly marked features were not known of sll msnkind. Colonel Lester said that aged members of the body nust needs sit near the ros trum, and thai freedom of Intercourse among members of the body would be in hibited by the change in rules sought lo be made.' Tbe proposition was leat. Dr. Walker, of South Carolina, pro posed further to amend the rules so that no speaker should occupy the floor louuer than fifteen mlnates, save with the assent of three-fourths of the house. The extent and manner of application of tbe " previous question" was discussed at length. Colonel Lester pronounced it, as often used, an oppressive rnle. Others condemned its use, and finally the rules of the former Confereece, as printed, were unanimously adopted. Dr. Jas, E. Evans proposed tbe appoint ment of the regular committees, and that nil each committee each subordinate Con ference should be represented. It was suggested that one lay and one clerical delegate from each Conference should be appointed on each committee. The objection was raised tbat tbe commit tees were numerous, and that the smaller delegations would be exhausted, and the duties Imposed fall very heavily upon them. It was thought that this require ment need not be complied with. Each delegation will select its own representa tives on the standing committees as fol lows: A Committee on ;1) Episcopacy; (2) Itineranoy ; (3) Books and Periodicals; (4) Boundaries; (5) Missions; (6) Revivals; 7) Sunday Schools: (8) Education; if, Relig ious Interests; (10) Religious Interests of the Colored People. Each delegation met yesterday after noon to select members on these commt tees, and reports will be made this morn ing. Messrs. Moss, 81ater, Psttiaon, Thomas, Watson, Rose bo rough. Jones, Johnson and Morgan were appointed a committee on public worship. It will be the duty ot these gentlemen to designate ministers who will occupy the several pulpits of the city while tbe Convention is in ses sion. A committee, appointed at the former General Conference, Bishops Holland M. McTyeire, Summers and A. L. P. Green, submitted a pamphlet report on the sub ject of the re arrangement of the . c- cipline. A copy of this report wil te furnished each member of tbe Confirmee to. dav. STRIKfNO FACTS. The first is that tho assembled digni tsries of the Methodist Episcopal Church South present an imposing appearance. There are many gentlemen whose faces betray great intelligence, and there is a kindliness of feeling snd an expression of gennint. benevolence written on nearly every couutenance which one ia not apt to discover among members of ordinary legislative bodies. The Bishops who oc cupied the rostrum, if one may judge of luieneciusi wonn Dy tne I ace Of men, might have filled honored places in the' I'nited States Senate chamber of old. On the floor were Messrs. Sebon, Hsmilton, Moore, Lester, Abby, Walker. Sbipp, Martin, Rozzell, and many others un known to our reporter, whose faces are indicativeof extraordinary mental endow ments. There U a yonng gentleman whose magnificent head, cleanly shorn like tbat of a Carmelite monk, reminds beholders of busts of Cicero as he must hsve appeared when he first assumed the toga riritis. This youthful divine Is the marvelous orator of Eastern TeC who haa wen fame in Baltimore - Eastern cities. Bishop Andrews, whose ownership of slaves (r) servants, avutot, begat the separation of the churches North and South, the senior Bishop of the Conven tion, occupied the pulpit. Though veTy aged the distinguished gentleman is still seemingly vigorous and in perfect health. It has been said that facts above referred to and the division of the Methodist Church constituted the first wedge driven down between the States North and South. Tbe presence of this venerable Bishop, of at least two Confederate Colonels and of four Generals and three Confederate Congressmen all mem bers of the Conference, are inci dents not devoid ef interest to the political world, which watches with fixed attention tbe conduct of tula extraordinary convocation ol the leading thinkers of one of the strongest religious denominations of the country. This hi the first General Conference in which lay men have held seats. The whole number o! delegates elected to the Conference was 24b, and yesterday 167 were present. The names of those present and of arrival is expected are DON'T BUY A LACE PUNT until you have seen onr stock of them.

Tbe grand rehearsal for the baby show which is to 00 me oil thia evening at four o'clock, at tbe park, took place yesterday evening. There were twenty-one babies entered for tbe race, and all came out be decked in tbe trappings in which they are to be exhibited this evening. Almost every seat was occupied in the Square, and hundreds of young mothers and "would-oe" mothers filled the walks -ud avenues as spectators of the parade. As we propose to give in our next issue a detailed report of tbe procession and ceremonies of this evening, we will not particularize as to the relative merits of the "stock" on exhibition. We will simply say tbat twenty odd prettier ba bies could" not have been found anywhere. Tbe following are tbe names of tbe en tries, as we got them from the nurses, who are much enthused as to the show. and are belting recklessly on tbe result. (Be it premised, before reading tbe list, that tbe youngsters named are leas than two years old, and therefore "gonder" doesii't mske much difference : Emma Nelson, Billy Wilkins, Luda Parks, Walker Portlock. Mary Fontaine, Hugh Hodget. Edmonia Cochrane, Gertrude PUtnam, Jesse Page Woodward, Robert Portlock. John Insdale ThouiDSOU.

In this order tbe nurses drew them around tbe park in their carriage. An informal election among tbem res ul tod in choosing M'lle Marie Fontaine, 2 yr.o. queen, and Mons. Willie Newsom, 3 yr.o. king. From au inspection, we think the choice was well made; whether they will be " king and oueen " at the show this evening Is more than we can ssy. Pools were sold by two old bachelors. whose names we suppress at their request The babies will convene al the Square at 4 p.m. precisely.

Eitctioi Ordered Appeal ay Burk ud Elliott. On yesterday the County Court ren dered their decision in the case of Stew art and Moore vs. Burke and Elliott, de claring the election on the 25th of March last, as to tbe Justices of the Fourteenth Civil District, null and void, and ordered the Commissioner of Rngistracio-j or oth er proper oflseer to proceed to fill the va cancies occasioned by the expiration of the terms of Moore and Hall. Burke and Elliott both took an appeal to the Circuit Court from the decision of the court. The proof showed conclusively thst great frauds were perpetrated upon tbe ballot-boxes a' the Fifth, Sixth and Tenth Wards, colore!: thsX ail and every negro was allowed -to vote without let or hindrance, not only once, Dut as often as tbey had the impu dence to offer their votes; that only two vacancies existed st thn time, ami thst, therefore, electors eonid vote for l it two candidates. But anxfltas to get 1:1, tick ets with from three to five names for Jus tices were voted, snd where tney knew tbat only two . could be voted for, tbe other name were erased, leaviag their favorite two t hereon. It wan admitted that tbe election was conducted fairly at tbe other six polls In the district, still tbe Conrt concluded to dec; are their votes null and void, because at three lariliea were them.
