The love borne us of the South by the

Our exchanges show that very com
monplace lawyers take advantage of the

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.
Tb above, and doubtless other plans,
will be discussed at the next meeting of

The Great International Picnic To-day.
There is nothing which tends to cement
friendship so much as meeting on tbe
greensward, underneath the leafy trees,
and there participating in tbe sports of
boyhood, in these utilitarian days these
reunions urn so untrequent that when
one is proposed it requires all the levers
of tbe press (said to be all-powerful,) and
any amount of outside working to make

PERSONAL.
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.

This question was asked the other di
in relation to a young man, "tbe only sou
of a widow," who was then rapidly re
covering from a state of absolute prostra
tion, occasioned by chronic indigestion.
It was asked by a friend of UiAl'smily ot
the invalid's mother, Mrs. iflkrnan, 95
Abingdon Square, New York.
The medicine referred to was Planta
tion Bitters. "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."
The lady herself is tbe authority for
this statement: and she further states her
be iefthat tbe restorative in question is
the best tonic and hivigorator ever ad
ministered. Twenty-live cents will buy a packet of
Sea Moss FasiNBof your grocer or drug
