The citv yesterday was very quiet. The season "of flowers, buds, pretty girls and picnics draws multitudes into the country. We shall have a succession of suburban entertainments and delights, and if a few hours were spent each week by each toil-worn tradesman beneath the shade trees and amid the pleasures of so cial life, such as these become in the wild woods, the joys of existence would be infinitely greater, and lite itself more tolerable and endnring. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald, writing on the tth Instant, save: "It has already been stated that "last night a sab committee of the House Pacific Railroad Committee agreed to recommend a Southern Pacific Railroad on the thirty-second parallel, from San Diego, California, to Marshall, Texas, and to grant the franchise to the Southern Transcontinental Railway Com pany. The route fixed upon, the gauge of the "road and the provision ot the bill re lating to the running arrangements with oonnecting roads, are such as were sug gested by the eommiltee of the Gulf Stales men, composed of Messrs. Sheldon, Sherrot, Perce and Clark. The South western States are to be liberally repre sented by incorporators from among their oitizens. This result has been reached after considerable discussion.

The eamet Report No. :), on the claim of the General Conference against the United States, for rents ot, and damages done to, the Southern Publishing House in Nashville, during the war, recommend that a special committee be appointed to take the matter in charge.

The eame (report No. 4), on the memo rial of the Ijouiaville Convention in re gard to the removal of the Southern Pub lishing House from Nashville to Louis ville, reports the memorial beck to the Conference, for action on it by that body, without recommendation. Dr. Hamilton, on a motion to receive the report, said that this matter was one which demanded the calmest and matur esw reflection and deliberation. He con sequently moved that the matter be made the order of the day for Tuesday next, at 10 o'clock. Motion adopted. Dr. Hamilton, on the Committee on Revisals, reported in favor of certain changes in the discipline. Repirt re ceived and adopted. The Committee on the Religious In struction of the Colored People stated that their report made the dav before, was final, and that they had nothing fur ther to report. PETITIONS, Ml MORIALS. KTC. From the Baltimore Conference, a me morial instructing the Committee on Books and Periodicals to inquire into the advantages of estsblishing the Southern Publishing House in Baltimore. The me morial set forth in detail the vast advan tages of Baltimore; spoke of its geo graphical position, etc , and pointed out wherein it was superior to every other city in the United States. Referred to the special committee to which the Lou hiville memorial on the same subject was referred. . The President announced that be had joet received a letter from the venerable Bishop Early, in which he sent greetings t the Conference, and ststed that if his health oontiuued to improve, and thH weather continued good, he would be wiv them in a lew days. A communication from the colored members of the Mount Sterling i Ky.) Dis trict, was referred to a special commit tee.

Harrison, praying that the Committee on Revisals be instructed to inquire into the propriety of compelling members of the Quarterly Conference to attend the same, unless hindered by unavoidable ciroum stsnoes. Adopted. The Rev. Mr. Peterson introduced the f jllowing resolution : Resolved by thU General Conference, That, notwithstanding Wesley's Sermons, Clarke's Commentaries, and Watson's Institutes, are amongst the books in the course of study prescribed for those who are to be ordained Deacons and Elders, or are admitted into the traveling ministry of the M. E. Church, South; yet. this fact is not to he construed into an indorsement by (Aa body, or by our Church, of what tbess authors have said In regard to the design of baptism. Tbla was a firebrand, and created no end of discussion. Mr. Morand, from the North Carolina Conference, claimed that this action was I contrary to the first principles of Metho ' dism, which declared that the General Conference shall have no power to change ' the principles and tenets of the faith. He claimed that the books mentioned were I the exponents of those tenets, snd that a i rejection of them was practically an inno : vation of the accepted faith. Mr. Spencer moved to table the reeolu- tlon. Mr. Peterson asked leave to withdraw ' bis resolution. On request, however, Mr. Spencer with drew his motion to table, and the discus ; sion of the resolution continued. Dr. Jefferson Hamilton made a telling ' speech on the subject, snd on his motion it was unanimously referred to he Board of Bishops. Dr. Taylor introduced a resolution to secure uniformity, fullness and accuracy in church statistics, providing for the ap pointment of a special commission to draft and arrange a series of blanks for the uee c-f every district annual and quarterly Conference.

Donnelly, H. Jewell. The Committee on Public Worship an nounced the appointments for the even ing. On account of the clearness of the enun ciation of the speaker, Mr. Walker, a member in the body of the boase arose and said that the brother's word had proven that when silence was kept by the audience, the speaker could be heard all over the house. The President, in reply, appointed Mr. Walker moderator in his "neighborhood," and then u.tter-1 the awful threat to "call names" unless the brethren kept order. Report No. 2, of the Committee on Re visals, was taken up, and acted upon seri atim. Amendments to every section were proposed thick and fast, and" a vast amount of talking was done, but one after one tbey were either laid on the table or voted down by overwhelming votes. The ma jority by which the recommendations of the report were carried, shows the faith that the Conference has in the wisdom and conscientiousnes of the committee a fact which must be gratifying to every member of it. The following is the report aa adopted: Your Committee have bad under con sideration a memorial from the Virginia Conference, upon the subject of District Conferences, and report the following, to be sdopted as Sec. 3 of chapter 2, of the new arrangement: V(wn.

It would have been a rreat pleasure to me to have re mained longer, to have witnessed your proceedings and enjoy your society. 1 sm especially interested In wit nessing your proceedings, since this is the first Conference at which I have been present to witness the action of lay delegates and I confess that what I have witnessed gives me an un qualified admiration of the system. I an ticipate that at the next General Confer ence of my ohurch we will have them as sociated with us in the highest branches of church legislation. I especially regret the necessity of leaving you, since the Committee on Church Worship has so politely extended to us the courtesy of asking us to preach. 1 wish it understood thst we do not deeline this courtesy for any other reason than that which I have indicated we are obliged to leave to attend to other dutiee. I hope this is clearly understood. It certainly would have.lbeen pleasant had it been in mv power to have preached to you especially aa for two evenings I have had the pleasure of listening to discourses from some of you. I must here scknowl edge the genuine hospitality, extended to us by your committees. I wish also to acknowledge, with great pleasure, the official ond personal courtesies extended to us bv the Conference at large as a body and individually. I think I may feel assured in saying that these courte sies, will be reciprocated, snd I hope to have the opportunity of bo doing. 1 again invoke our common parent and one Sa viour for you individually and as s body.

Dr. Harris spoke but a few words, reit erating the sentiments of the Bishop, thanking ths conference for the Christian courtesies extended to him while in the city, and invoking divine blessing upon them.

By all odds, thia Lodge is most honored in Its name of all in thia city, and it was honored yeeterday by all other Lodges, and by the presence of fsmous leaders in Memphis Odd Fellowship. In the pro cession we recognized the ancient and venerable, snd ever-to-be-revered Dan bury. Preset t and Past Orand High Patriarch Bingham, a thousand years old if his titles, and honors and worth mean anything. Smith's brass band led the way through crowded streets, slong which the splendid pageant moved. Messrs. Ben Blnirham. Wavnesbura and ,' Acker man were marshals; Messrs. Link- hauer, Harper, 1 hi and Schneider are the officers of the Schiller Lodge. In the line were the officers of Memphis Lodge, Chickasaw Loige, and of Qayoeo En campment. After the speeches given be low came the festival, the wine, women, poetry and dancing. It was a dsy long to be remembered by the Odd Fellows and their guests. MR. ORONACKa'S SPRBTH. Owing to the very short time given Mr. Joseph Uronauer for preparation, his speech was not up to the standard of ex cellence of his usual effusions. He paid, in opening, a glowing tribute te the seasen of the year, reciting the beauties of the spring-time, and speaking of their exhil arating effects upon all lovers of nsture. Gliding from thia point to the gathering which be was addressing, be congratu lated the Germans assembled on the great progress which bad been made by them as a people In the city of Memphis pointing especially to the eetablish meut of the Schiller Lodge as an evidence. " Although the order ot Odd Fellows," said he, "knows no nationality, religion or politics, in the qualification of its members, it must still be mentioned, with the highest degree of praise, of our American brethren, that they have put themselves at our side, and assisted us to call Into life the Schiller Lodge the first German lodge in West Tennessee. Al though its membership is not yet very numerous, yet there is no doubt but that the time is not fsr distant when it will include In Its ranks the very best Ger man citizens of Memphis. The greater portion of Mr. Oro nauer's speech w aa devoted to an acknowledgment of the services of those who, neither speaking nor understand ing the liermau language, gave them selves so heartily to the labor of founding and estabUsing the Schiller Lodge. We regret thatthe crowded state of our col umns will not allow us to give a full translation of it. In closing he paid the following tribute to the founders of the Lodge: "For the existence of the Schiller Lodge, we may especially thank the exer tions of certain German Odd Fellows, who by untiring zeal, through love of our German origin, and by no inconsiderable peenniarvsacrifices. I need not call their Dimes. We are all indebted to them for this jewel which they have brought to the light of day." The speaker concluded by return ing thanks to the officers of the Lodge for the manner in which they had carried out their arduous duties, and ex pressing the wish that the assemblage might pass many similar happy hours to gether. After dancing and amusing themselves in such other manner as they found it moat agreeable, about three o'clock Brother A. I. Wheelei was introduced to the crowd. BROTHER WHEELER'S ORATtOX. After referring in general terms to the character and purposes of Odd Fellow ship, he said: It requires no belief in any of the straight-jacket conventionalities or reli gious doi mas of the day. It tells you to come here and breathe the free air of heaven ; to loosen the selfish, eordid bonds and routine of every day lite, and dance, run, jump and play nntll fresh currents of life and light" dance through your veins, and you assume the animate and life-like color that God intend ed fbr all his creatures. If I find a stimulant necessary to my health and comfort, adding to my social pleasures, and st the same time improving my phys ical existence, I will take that stimulant. If I find that weeks of close confinement and laborious toll have deprived me of bre -thing the pure air of earth, and see ing the beautiful flowers and works of creation, I will hie away to the field and the forest, read my book, worship my God, and spend my Sabbatb in the great temple of nature. This is sense; this is tolers ion that broad and free toleration which Is one of the cardinal principles of Odd Fellowship. 1 am gtad, my friends and brothers, that I have been Invited by the Ger man Lodge of our city to address you to-day. It is an honor conferred upon me that I did not deserve; but I ap preciate it the more because it comes from the representatlce of s people or nation the most tolerant on the face of the globe a people educated and Intel li e nt ; none are more so Knee, none are more tolerant. But what is Odd Fellowship? What strange creation is it that can bring men of all nations, creeds and opinions to gether, and seat them in close communion and fellowship with each other. How is it that an old straight sided, long-faced, blue-complexioned, white neck-lied preacher or deacon will find a congenial, comfortable and agreeable companion, and will hold sweet converse and loving companionship with some rlsshy, cross-grained, hard-beaded old German? Is there any roujreniality between such persons as my little friend, Bingham, over there, and'my sedate old friend. Ver terena; and yet if you should see tbem in a lodge-room together, you would take them for twin brothers. Who would sup pose that my health y .good-looking friend Ackermatt and myself would seek com panionship together? He drinks lager; 1 expect to become a cold water man. He smokes his fine Spanish cigars ; "nary" a smoke have 1. And yet Ackerman " is not a bad man. I snociate with him a whole lodge-room associates with him; yea, more, we claim that he is a very clever gentleman. Thus it is: oddities, incongruities, orthodox, heterodox, psra dox and pepper-box characters all minirle together, clasp bands yea, love each other in concord and pea . But I have said that this was no time or occasion to listen to sne merits or defense of Odd Fellowship. Happiness is our ob ject to-day freedom from the world's care, its bigotry, its selfishness snd its troubles. What signifies to us the de nunciation of the man in pont Its il robes, the bigot, the skeptic, the brainless fool or the madman? Truth and right may be stayed for a season by the han-i of man; but when necessity for success conies, that hand withers, justice triumphs, and we have nsught to fear. If the seed or the p-im-iples of Odd Fellowship are naught but the invention ef the human intellect, gotten up to please and gratify the human understanding, without any of the God-giving and eternal element within it, then it can only exist for a time and will vanish away forever. But enough! Tb you, members of Schil ler Lodge, I have a few words to uttor. You have commenced a goodly record. Members as you were of the other Lodges of our city Lodges that possessed wealth, influence and meana that is unusual for Lodges to own. You, aa members, bad an equal show in all their improvements and profits. But notwithstanding these ad vantages, you relinquished sll that you might found a Lodge of your own. The Lodges you belonged to were pleasant and harmonious; you fully shared all their pleasures, profits and favors; the principles of the order were disseminsted as you desired, bnt with no selfish eud to gratify, no pet scheme to advance, and no property to unite you. tour aim, it is revident, was to disseminate the true light of Odd Fellowship, to nnite more closely the brotherhood, and explain more fullv to your countrymen, in your own native language, the beauties and benefits of our order. The object la laudable and praiseworthy, and I know I am uttering the sentiments of every worthy brother of Nos. 0 and 3, as well as of the order at large, when I say God bless you, snd speed your great and glorious undertak ing.

Where are Your Children?- Idle ness the Cause ef Vice. Parents hardly realize to what tempta tions tbeir children are exposed when thrown upon their own resources for amusement away from the home circle. How true is the saying that "an idle head is the devil's workshop." Many a con demned criminal can trace back his first overt set to evenings spent away from the influences of home. Parent, look at that young ana as be reels slong the street. What wreck so shocking as the wreck of a iiissolute man? The vigor of life Is exhausted, and yet the first steps in an honorable career not yet taken! Mow nature disfigures his countenance, pours rhenm over his eyes, sends foui spirits to inhabit his breath; how Bue hangs labels all over him to testify her disgrace at his existence, and to admonish others to beware of his example. Mother, that young man was once the pride of the family. But the want of home influences and surroundings has made him the beast he Is. How mnch then depends on the mother and home In the formation of character. Then, again, the parent must use a great dnal of discretion in the use of aids to render the home circle sttract lve and pleasant. Cards lead to gam bling; dancing paves the way for other evils; but no objection can be raised, moral or otherwise, to the presence of one of the St. Louis Bell Treble Pianos in any household. The enrapturing music would delight every member of the family none would wish or desire to absent himself when Its soft, sweet, full clear notes could be heard. Nothing makes borne so pleas ant as music, and no piano possesses the power to charm and delight the senses as does this matchless instrument. For beauty of finish, sweetness of tone, dura bility and general excellence, the St. I. nits BeirTreble Piano has no eual, and no home Is complete without its presence. MORAL. Mothers, secure this matchless Piano. It may save your child from a felon's cell. Wilde dt Collins, 264 Second street, Gene ral Agents St. i. .nia Bell Treble Piano. Call at once. Two thousand remnants of prints will be sold at B. Lowenstein Jr. Bros, to-day. FRENCH CORSETS 75c. (1ANH' NEW STORE, 2HH Main. LAW REPORTS. Chancery Court- Chancellor Maroan.

Nervous Headache, Liver Com n Vint, etc., etc. The brain being the most delicate and sensitive of all our organs, is necessarily more ox less affected by all oar bodily ailments. A headache is often tbe first symptom of s serious disease. If the nervous system la af fected, there Is always trouble at its source in tbe pericranium. And it may be here remarked that as tbe nervous fibre pervades tbe entire frame, no part of the physical structure can be affected without the nerves suffering svm patheti cally. Liver complaint of every type af fects the brain. Sometimes the u fleet Is stupor, confusion of ideas, hypochon driasis ; sometimes persistent or period ical headache. In any case, the beat rem edy that can be taken is Plantation Bit ters, la headache proceeding from Indi gestion or biliousness, or both, the stom ach and anti- bilious properties of tbe preparation will soon relieve the toiture, by removing the cause. If the complaint is purely nervous in other words, if It had originated in the nervous system, and hi not the result of sympathy, the Bitters will be equally efficacious.
