Curry, who, af- tar aaklnir the authorahiu of the article I regard to the escape of Leonard, and re e vine a reply, deliverod to us the fol lowing communication, which he stated was written by Jooelvn, ana giv en to him (Col. Lurry) without say solicitation on his part Ukmpuis, l ENsT., June 1, 170. Editors Appeal : There seems to be a misunderstanding somewhere with ref erence lo a statement said to have been made bv mvself concerning the escai from the county jail, of Thomas K. Lswn- ard, which manifests itself in an article in Ibis morninit's Appeal, and which desire to correct aa far as regards myself. M v statement was this: I had been out of my cell tor exercise one day after the escape of Leonard, and when the time came for locking np the cells for the night, Mr. Francis passed my cell, forget ting that l had been out, ami conaaouent iv forgetting to look my cell. He had gone out through the gate communicat ing with the prisoner s department lroin the offices, when I called him back and apprised him of his neglect. My cell was the same from which Leonard had caped, though I was not in jail at the time of aaid escape, having been arrested the day after. I will further say that I never made a statement before the Court, rela tive lo the above facta, but simplv assert ed it to one or two persons whom I now forget. have Authority from the priso ners .Su ann and Gtlmore to say that the ar ticle as vie Appeal m euuoilu untrue with regard to themselves, as they never made aas h statements. Very respectfully, C. A. JOCELYN. According to our habit, we Immediate ly agreed to publish the same, and to make further inquiries into the truth or falsity of the statements published by us ynsteraay morning. Taking Mr. Jocelyn's communication and a copy of the Appeal with as, we went up to ihe jail, and by permission in terviewee; swaun and Uiimore, the men whom Mr. Jocelyn states pronounced our account "untrue with regard to them selves." The prisoner, Swann, was first sent for, ana the following conversation occurred. Reporter Have you seen anybody this morning in regara to an article which ap pealed in the Appeal of to-day? Ana. No, sir. (question Have you seen Mr. Jocelyn to speak with him this morning? Aus. No, sir. Q. Will yoa be kind enough to give me ail me information mat you may have in regard to the escape of Leonard from jail? Swann hesitated somewhat to answer, luit after being assured that no harm should occur to him from any source if be made a clean breast of what he knew, he answered that he would. He then proceeded to state that he was hired at the jail in the capacity of a cook when Leonard made his escape. Reporter You were not a prisoner. then, as stated in the Appeal? A. No sir. I had been s Drisoner. but had been tried and aouuitted. and afterward was hired here as eook by Ma jor Morton . On the evening of the night that Leonard made his escape, Mr. Fran cis, the jailer, went away about seyen o'clock, and remained away until ten lock. The w atchman was awav when Francis lett. and did not come in for over half an hour. When Francis came in he went through the snrini; rate (the irate dividing the corridor and the body of the jnii i, aim alter oeiug in mere a few min utes, he came out and told the watchman, r.. rry,togo in and lock Leonard's cell floor. He didn't say anything about iiisHllett,the other man who escaped with Leonard. I then went off to my room, and went to Bleep. I was waked up about three o'clock by Berry, who told me that Leonard and Ceoodlett had escaped. Ha duin t tell Mr. r rancis about it until daylight the next morning, Reporter Did you ever see Cuny and Leonard together? A. Yes, sir; two or three dsys before he made his escape Leonard and Curry were standing at the spring gate talking. I heard Leonajd say, "If I don't get out before the election I won't get out at all." Leonard at the same time express' the opinion tbst Curry would not be re-elected. To the first remark of Leonard, Curry answered that "he wonld fix that." Reporter Did Leonard have any money in his possession? A. Yes, sir. A few days before the escape, an express package containing two hundred dollars came to the jail for Leonard, and was delivered to him. Reporter Then it is customary to allow prisoners to receive express pack ages and large sums of money? A. No, sir. I never knew ofanv other insiauce uuring my staj- here. W hen ever a prisoner was brought here his money and valuables were kept in the otbee. N.o one was sllowed to bave money, except in this instance. Two or three days after receiving the money. ieonaru sent out ana oougnt a plug not. neponer w as the front gate leu un rupted and said that he, Swann, knew that the front gate was left open. When Barry came up that night with a prisoner he left the spring gate open, behind him. He may hare closed it when be went oat. y. Is is true that the jail officers went round next morning and threatened the prisoners if they reported anything about Leonard's escape? A. I don't know about that. They brought me into the office of the jail anil NuestioDsd me about it, and I told them that what I did know I would not tell Mere. I didn't consider that they had any right to question me, and I wouldn't give them any satisfaction. y. Did they punish yon for this? A. Whether for that or not, I don't know. But from that time on, they kept me looked up, and wouldn't allow my friend to come and see me. I can't an swer whether the other prisoners were threatened. Moat, if not all of the other prisoners then in jail hsve been sent up to the penitentiary. This eloeed the interview to all intents snd Damoses at least so far as to show that Mr. C. A. Jocelyn had no authority to use Swann'a name in his denisi. and only s partial authority to use Gilmore's. At our request the cell mate of Mr. Jocelyn (whose name we do not give for reasons of our own) was sent for. snd he stated to us that he had written Mr. Joce lyn's communication at his (Jocelyn's) request. We asked him it Jocelyn had told him that be had seen Colonel Curry. He said that he had not, and that his card waa-uusolicited by that gentleman. He remarked, however, that he had seen Colonel Curry on Monday after hia re lease, and mentioned to him that Joe (Swann) had got a new trial. Colonel Curry remarked that he ought to be sent up for twenty years. we have no aeslre to in are or pursue anyone, and we are aifting these matters thus closely in order simply and purely that the truth may be known. If Swann was the man who aided Leonard to es cape we hope it will be so proven, and he wi!l"get the full measure of the law. If not, and he is innocent, we hope that the guilty ones may be found and punished. Remnants annual sale of Remnants. at Menken Bros. A.

Again asking him if he had authorised Jocelyn or anybody else to correct ou statements, and receiving a negative an swer, we requested to see and question the white man inlmore. He was brousrbt in, snd the following conversation was neia: U- by reporter Did you see Jocelyn mis morning Ans. Yes. He went to the cell that he formerly occupied and had some talk with hia former room-mate. (i Did you authorize him to deny the statements mane in tne appeal 7 A ns. Well, I sm a prisoner here, and I don't want to mix up in anything of the sort, it may set me back. These men have got po.-r over me, and I don't want to oe Kept in tneir clutches. Here he was interrupted by the Sheriff, General M. J. Wright, who, we neglected to say, was present and beard the entire interview, who assured the prisoner that nothing which he should state should be used against him in sny manner; that there had been a new deai all arouud. and that neither Curry nor anybody else had anv power to harm him. General Wrhrht at the same time told the prisoner thst he (una answer or not, just as be plessed; mat it waa perfectly optional with him. ii. i more, thus reassured by the Uen eral's words and manner, said that be would tell what he knew, and we re sumed : Reporter (showing- Jocelvn's "card Is t Ins Jocelyn's handwriting? ad.-.ii, sir. It is his cell-mate' occupy the cell directly opposite to theirs. it is sill ssme eii occupied by ijeonara, and I can look into it through the traps (small dead-lights eight or ten inches high liv ten or twelve long in the door Of the cell.) this morning Jocelyn there and he and hia former cell -mate got in taiKing. lie came to tne trap ana reaif metbing to me that was published in the Appeal, and aaid that it was mv statement before the Court. It was not, and I so answered. I did not tell what I knew in the Court. I answered the ques tion thst were put to me, but they were right questions to get at what I asw. i uould answer them, and not throw any light on where the blame did lie and yet not perjure mvself. That's what he meana b, aaying I denied it Reporter-We did not state ifct Vou said what we report in court Here is UUoyout ,D th'K"-' rlS Ans. If you please. We then read to him the statements as aiade in the Appeal yesterday morning explained to him that bis name was sS mentioned in the srticle, nor waa a single nut lenient mentioned as having neon "made before the court." We aakad him then if be were willing to tell what he knew or the escape, and what he had al ready told one of our informants of the dsy liefore. A. Yes, I will; and it's the truth. J oc cupied the call directly oppasite to Leon ard I the same afterward occupied by Jocelyn). Odb day. Just after he got that package of money by express, he had liberty out of his call, and, while stand ing by bis door in the hall, he took oat a roll of money. In doing so he dropped a two dollar bill, which I saw. He went to the spring gate, and when he came back I called hia attention to it, and be picked it up. niepping into ma oen, ana pulling to the door after him, be commenced takinsr the things out of his pocket. I sou Id see very plainly from where I stood what he took out. Among other things was a lsrge key. o.. What sort of a key? Ans. Well, it was too bur for s door. or s trunk, or anytihng else but a jail key. luajuiii use me aey i nave seen uui- len have. I hays seen Cullen go into IKnard's cell and lav down hia keva. or Leonard would take them, and while they were talking woald play with them, twirl them around his hands, ate. One dsy, after Leonard got that money, he asnt for a bottle of whisky, and Cullen helped him to drink it, on his invitation. That day Cnilen sate that key. I didn't aee Leonard leave hia cell thst night. I did see Goodlett, however, and I called out, but nobody heard me. The spring gale waa left unlocked that night for awhile, I know. I don't know anything about the front gate; for I couldn't see It from where I was. Hart Swann Inter ne the Appeal, patiently as mav be watching the steady movements of lea Jones as he lifts ud the walls of captain i nurch s building hard by, and while the Appeal was impatient that the structure might rise more rapidly and obstruct the burning rsys of the sum mer's sun which flood the editorial donii- cil with fervent heat, there came a son of Gthiopis reeking in grease that was boiled from his bones. His ardent breath blis tered his swollen lips, bis eyes protruded till they might hsve been knocked out with a clapboard brought down on a per pendicular tine, his crisped wool was drawn tighter than corkscrews snd was cracked at the roots by intense tension. He bore on his cranium a basket filled with delicacies transmitted by the fairest women who conduct the Episcopal Fair. The heat had broken a vessel containing ice cream, and ita contents, oozing through the basket, stewed and crackled and fizzed as they overspread Cuffee's heated physiognomy. Cuffee's face was streaked and marked as with leprosy, snd he came in grinning and licking his chops ith infinite saUsfaction. The con tents of the basket, iess the cream, were spread before the attaches of the Appeal estsblishment, and while discussing the good things of life, it was not forgotten that among the chiefest of these, is an accomplished, faultless wo man. The namea of the thase to whom we were Indebted lor the feast, were rev erently mentioned, and it was agreed that if luxuries like these were spread before all visitors of Rocco's Hall that the gods might descend from Olympus to a temple of diviner beauties and attractiveness in Memphis. Go to Rocco's Hsll this even ing and see how beautiful are the daugh ters of 3femphis, how tasteful in apparel, how pleasing in manners, snd what stories are told by love-lit eyes lustrous aa the stars and suggest! vo of dreams aa delightful aa the joys of paradise. $29,162 86 Respectfully submitted.

Honorable Common Council: In accordance with a resolution Dassed by vour honorable body, I have to report as follows: I have examined the side walks very generally throughout the city. and would recommend that thesidewalks, in the 9th and 10th wards particularly, where the grades have not been fixed, be constructed of plank, and that the side walks iii the old wards, with perhaps a few exceptions, be constructed of brick. I would respectfully recommend that the ordinance, requiring 30 days' notice in the repairs of sidewalks, be amended so to require only 10 days notice, as in this way repairs can be much more promptly attended to. rtespeoirauy, u.t.bmith, Sanitary Sergeant.

A New Preaideat and Vice President. Ail that the people ask is that the road to Padacah be honestly and speedily built. It signifies nothing who msy exe cute the task. Below we give an account of the proceedings yesterdsy, to which we may advert hereafter. Very certainly Memphis cannot build or own the road. Whatever its mode of management, when finished, the city's fortunes are promoted by its existence. It seems that the Mc Cemba "ring'so-cal exi, now have posses sion or supreme control of all toads con necting Paducan and New Orleans. Yes terdsy the Board of Directors of the Mis sissippi River 1 Memphis snd Pad nosh Railroad Company, held a meeting, and A. 8. Mitchell tendered his resignation as President, sad also as a Director, which was accepted, when the Board elected Ex. Norton ss s member of the Board, and also as President of the company. A. T. Lacy resigned as a member of the Board sod as Vice President, and W. B. Greenlaw waa elected Vice President in his stead. A vole of thanks was tendered to Messrs. Mitchell snd Lacy for the efficient. courteous snd successful manner in which they have discharged the d uties of P real dsn t and Vice President of the Company. ihe lioard ordered an increase of force on the construction ot the road from Memphis to Covinutoa. and also directed the Engineer to advertise for proposals to build the road from Covington lo Ripley.

The difference between Banning's Brace Truss for Hernia, and those in com mon use is, thst while the latter merely stop the outlet by pressing open the ex ternal ring, thus necessitating great press ure to prevent the descent of the Hernia and causing an enlargement of the ring, the former, by its lifting abdominal weight from the rings, makes but a slight pressure necessary, not upon the external ring, but upon the canal between the two rings, thns favoring a contraction of the rings snd s speedy radical care.
