Dubb's and Elliott's distillerv, at Horn lake, was seized Wednesday by the I nited Slat. Comiulasiouer for alleged violation ol Has revenue laws. The piano! building piers or break waters out from the uriheru portion ol the river bend or curve, to save our levees, grows in favor every day. The Hon. Win. McDougal, n .r 0f the Georgia Legislature from Chatta hoochee county, passed through the city yesterday afternoon, en route for home. A sealed bottle was found floating in t he river at Vicksburg, containing a letter from Clara Wiiliauis, staling that she had drowned herself to escape a life of shame. We understand that Mr. J. J. Stoner baa received enough subscribers to his bird s-eye view of Memphis to warrant tbe lithography aud publishing ol the same. A correspondent proposes that tbe Chamber of Commerce cause to be pub lished a pamphlet defining tbe agricul tural and manufacturing advantages of this city and adjacent country. There is a municipal law against bathing in tbe Mississippi in front of the city. This fact was not known to several individuals, who will have to answer to tbe Recorder lor an infringement of the provisions of the same this morning. Major Baker, superintendent of the department of Arkansas and Louisiana, will to-day lay a new telegraphic otble between this and tbe I'rans-Miasisainpi bore, making a direct connection be tween Memphis and Little Rock. Tbe body of a while man was found at tbe foot of Hotel street, near tbe Gay oso Hotel, yesterday morning. 'Squire Kieman held an inquest on tbe corpse, and tbe jury returned a verdict of "Found drowned." Tbe skull of the body was caved in as if by a blow from a billet of wood. The love borne us of the South by the low-lived devils who compose the "Grand Army of the Republic," is appropriately illustrated by the conduct of this infa mous body at Arlington, recently. See elsewhere for an account of it. Our exchanges show that very com monplace lawyers take advantage of the pendency of t tie supreme Court election to have themselves very handsomely adver tised. With an eye to this fact, Judge Miller, who has supervision of all tne magistrates of this county, assures us that he is not a candidate. Colonai Baboock, of this vacinity, will hereafter snip a car load of vegetables, Irish potatoes, tomatoes, etc., one car twine each week to Chicago. ArrangementR have been made to run a special "through" freight train. Gardners around Memphis will hereafter supply Cincinnati, Louis ville and all western cities with the pro ducts of their skill and industry. The oyster season is definitely over, in despite of the late cold snap, and nun lunches are becoming the order of the day in first-class bar-rooms. Mr. Vincent Botto, recognizing this fact, sets a splen did lunch every morning, at the corner of Washington and Front (Madam Vincent's old place), from ten till twelve. The same good liquors, fine cigars, etc., as of old, always to be found at the bar. An extraordinary mortality prevailed in a certain negro district of Georgia re cently. It was explained by the follow ing paragraph which appeared in a local paper about that time : "The farmers of Southwestern Georgia have discovered a plan for preventing hog thieving. They feed their hogs on strychnine, giving a level teaspoonful to every three hogs at a time. The strychnine penetrates the hog's flesh and poisons it for three weeks thereafter. If ea-en during this time it im fatal." By decision of the Supreme Court, on the 2d dsv of February, 1870, it Is held that a merchant may deal in tobacco and cigars, when these articles are kept ror variety, without being considered a cigar or tobacco dealer, as contemplated in the revenue act. In accordance with this de cision, no person will hereafter be re quired to take out license as a tobacco or cigar dealer unless these articles are bis principal trade. The same ruling will embrace the sale of drugs, when sold by i-i-i i.anta as an incident to general trade. The following well deserved tribute to one of our very best citizens is from tbeluka Springs Mirror. We indorse every word of it: "The gallant Colonel J. C. Fixer, formerly ot Mississippi, and now doing business in Memphis, has been stopping at the Iuka Springs Hotel for several days. The Colonel was com mander, a portion of the war, of the Sev enteenth Mississippi Regiment. When the war closed he was in command of a (ieorgia brigade. Colonel F. was one of the truest and bravest soldiers of our lost cause. He lost bis right arm while leading to the charge the forlorn hope against the enemies' works at Knoxville. Colonel F. is a man wbom we delight to honor." Yesterday morning, at an early hour, a well known citizen going to mass, en countered another well known citizen coming out of a back yard with a basket on his arm. The "basket holder" showed signs of great embarrassment on seeing his old friend, and suddenly remembered that he had forgotten something in the house that he was just leaving (which, by the way, was not his own). Looking back, when about midway the back yard, be stumbled, and a low wail broke from the basket, showing there was something in it that the carrier would have much Drefexred to remain secret. The basket was carried back into the house, but the storv leaked out, and we doubt very uiuch if names and localities can remain secret very long. The disinfecting power of water has been receiving considerable attention of late. With the exception of charcoal, it Is said that no other substance is so perfect an absorbent ot odors. It absorbs its own volume of some gases, and more than six hundred times its volume of others. For instance, of ammonia gases, which is one of the largest products of decomposition, six hundred and seventy cubic feet is ab sorbed by one of water. Another orten sive odor, always present where animal matter is decaying, arises from sulphide of hydrogen. Water absorbs two and a hall times its own volume of this. These tacts are worthy of remembrance and nracticsl attention. A quantity of water plac-i in an open vessel in a room, and changed often, makes an excellent disin fectant. It has become fairly settled as the onlv sound method of cultivating the ; strawberry, that plants mustjbe kept from runners. "The enect of this practice is wonderful. The whole growth of the plant is concentrated by this means in the original stock, and it "enlarges until aa many as a quart of berries have been plucked from a single plant. It will be understood that this method is followed only with such plants as are not raised with a view of propagation, but are per manent varieties, set out for family use. In order to sail, the runners must be en couraged. After all the endless list of varieties which have been extolled as the best, the Wilson retains its position as the best market berry. Much will be found to depend on the nature of the soil and the mode of cultivation. Before the plants are in bloom in the early spring, the ap plication of liquid manure will be found of great value.

OUR RIVER FRONT. The Chaages In the Current of the Miseie sippl. A number of our most prominent and success-mi merchants, property owners and business men have been, at some period of their lives, engaged in tbe occupation of navigation on the Mississippi. These, together with a large number now interested in steam boats, either aa owners or employes, are familiar with, and understand tbe freaks of, our great river, in the sudden chango of channels and currents after each rise or freshet. The under, cross and counter currents, eddies, chutes, false points, sand bars, islands and other singularities are known to every practical river man. They have been carefully st udied, learn edly cussed and discussed, and elaborate ly treated during the past thirty years, in numerous reports and surveys oi vari ous skillful and scientific engineers. Pa tient research, combined with long prac tical experience, and the expenditure of countless sums of money, have demon strated tbe difficulties of controlling the river at any particular point between the mouth of the Missouri and the Gulf of Mexico. Except at St. Louis, every at tempt has resulted unsuccessfully. N umerous Congressional appropria tions have been wasted in efforta to im prove the channels near the entrance of nie river to thegulf. Ships loaded with cot ton have each sea-ton been detained weeks and even montbson tbe bars at tbe passes, incurring heavy expenses, and entailing large losses upon their owners, because unaoletogo over the shallow water on the bars into the deep waters of the ocean. Some of the most eminent engineers of the present generation have toiled, la bored and caused the expenditure of mil lions of money, only to be ballied, and in the end forced" to admit they had failed to do good. Hard lumps, composed of the stiff, tenacious clay of the river bottom, have often risen up in a single night directly where the main channel ran a day or two before, and as if in mockery, frequently while dredging boats, pile-driving and other works were being carried on. At an early period of the late war, the same skill, energy and industry was em ployed, and uiouey lavished unsparingly, to control or obstruct the main river at several points, only in every eflort to re sult in a signal failure. The narrowest point on tbe Mississippi from Cairo to the (iulf, is at ooiuuidus, Ky. Anchors, chains and cables of the heaviest pattern were used there in con nection with barges, flats and steamers, and months of labor was expended in placing them in proper position. Iu a single half hour a freak of the winds and currents swept everv thing down the river, iumbling the whole together in dire confusion. In that short space of time the stream was as clear and unob structed as it was in days anterior to its discovery by DeSoto. At Fort Jackson, seventy miles below New Orleans, heavy logs were converted into stupendous rafts, and fastened by tremendous chains and anchors, and all this proved ineffectual. Grant's celebra ted ca nal, near Vicksburg, was the most signal failure of all and as before men tioned, only at St. Louis, after twenty years o- labor, and an expenditure of mil lisns of dollars, was an effort to govern the action of the river crowned with success. Twenty-one years ago a devastating lire swept over St. Louis. Twenty-three steamboats, with other water crafts, were destroyed in a single night while lying moored at the wharf. Their charred and blackened hulls sunk to the bottom along the river front, and soon af:er filled with mud and sediment. Strenuous efforts to remove tbe wrecks proved futile and una vailing. A bar commenced f irming in front, ot the lower part of the citv. while Kne channel on the Illinois side of Bloody Island (the latter directly in front of the city) began to grow deeper aud wider. The city was threatened to be left with a huge sand or mud bar in front that would render its harbor worthless. The wharf, or levee, had always been too narrow, and drays were often backed up among freight piles for hours, with a dozen policemen at work to untangle them. It was finally determined to fill in over the sunken wrecks, and thus widen the levee. When this was completed, St. Louis boasted the finest wharf in any western or southern city. But tbe river bad a notion of its own. It had taken a start and refused to come back. The bar continued to in crease in size. In a short lime portions reared itself above tbe surface. It must be stopped at all hazards, and after many experiments it was done. First, jetties or wing-dams of loose stone were run out from the Illinois side above the head of Bloody Island, and several miles above the city. This threw tbe water over to the Missouri side. Tbe bar then began to cut away, but a new danger threatened. The bead" of the island com menced washing off, and it was palpable the whole of it would shortly go. An ex tension ol the wing-dams, and the con struction of others of stupendous propor tions at the foot of the islaud, tailed to stop it. Finally it was determined to build two dykes of stone and earth from the Illinois shore to the island, and stop up the channel altogether. Tbe plan was successful but the cost footed up millions. Tbe whole volume of the river was confined to a space of 2000 feet and passing in a straight linedirectly in front of tbe city. To prevent the banks from caving, they were sloped by grading and p. ! with stone, down to extreme low water mark. Thus St. Louis was saved the trouble of moving over tbe river, while she was enabled to boast of one of tbe best and most convenient wharves ot sny city in the country. Nearly twenty years ago one of the packet lines built a stone wharf nearly op posite tbe mouth of the Missouri, to make a convenient coaling place for the use of their steamers. A sudden freshet of the Missouri eut a channel across tbe country and made a new entrance into tbe Mississippi several miles above the old mouth, the latter filling up ent irely in a short time. The current striking di rectly across with great force. Tbe oppo site bank commenced wearing away, and forming a deep bend; a short distance above the former coal yard. Tbe little pUe of stone protected tbe jioint where the wharf stood, and the deep bend above is now a proof that small things often produce large results. Several plans have been suggested to save the upper portion of our levee, and tbe grounds below Wolf river, from being carried away by tbe undermining cur rent now sweeping down against it. Un less something is done, it is plain that the batture, or made land, will all finally be washed away, and our steamboat landing greatly damaged or totally de stroyed. One of the plans proposed is to construct an immense wing-dam of stone, from the Arkansas side, above Island 40, to throw the water over behind the is lands above Wolf river, and make tbe current pass in a straight line along the front of the city to President's Island. This proposition will be attended with a heavy outlay. Several hundred thou sand dollars at least will be required to perforin it, while the results are bv no means certain. The river may still per sist in do' tig as it pleases ind reluse to run Ibe Tennessee shore, or to cut tne old channel out again, as was the case at St. Louis. Another plan proposed is, to build two jetties, or wing-dams, extendi ug from the ijatia at tne toot oi ropisr anu n incnesier streets, mclining down stresm, to the mum Njrl or channel, where the stone win rest on the bard, tenacious blue clay that forms the river-bed snd aflords a founda tion as solid as masonry. That this plan is feasible aud will have tbe desired effect is a reasonable conclusion, and so confi dent are many of the ground-owners of the threatened district, that in the event of a failure thev are willing to bind them selves in securities of unquestioned sol vency to reimburse the citv lor ail outlays. Tbe proposition is made by Capt. Postal, who, neing luieresieu in iijwiuiuare use lv to be swept entirely away, is anxious to save them as well as tbe other property. Iln nrop.;ses to construct each dam lor $15,u0u certainly a small sum for tbe ben efits that will accrue if successful. Many assert that tbe work cannot be performed for the sum named, but Captain Postal commands the aid and services of parlies who know what they are doing, and who have learned it by long years' experience i he work of controlling tne river ai St. Louis.

It la with sincere regret we learn that Dr. C. 8piegel, one of tne oldest members of thejmedicai faculty of Metnphis.ia about to leave us and take up bis residence in Cincinnati, The Doctor is widely known, not only In this immediate vicinity, but throughout the Union, as the most suc cessful cancer operator In the world. The cures he has effected, and the blessings conferred upon suffering humanity, are innumerable. To the poor be baa always been a benefactor, serving tbem without money and without price, in ae one of epidemics and public distress. We regret the departure of Dr. Spiegel. His ab sence will be a loss to the community one not readily to be made up. But, since he has determined to continue in the prac tice of his profession, we are reconciled to bis departure. In Cincinnati, where he goes to connect himself with the well known Dr. O. E. Newton, he will be readily accessible to his patients North ss well as South, and will be in a condition to extend his system of cures, especially of cancer, to all in the United States or the Canadas, who are afflicted with that nauseous disease. We commend the Doc tor to the people of Ciucinnati, and trust his new home will be as pleasant as, he assures us, he has always found that which he leaves in Memphis. Communicated. Spiral Curvature.

"I do mean to say it," replied Mrs. K. ; "we had tried twenty other remedies before, without the slight est benefit; but we tried none afterward, for the Bitters proved all sufficient."
