Attention is called to the notice of John Gaston, "black-snd-tan slut lost." The finder will receive $10 on returning her to her owner. We are happy to be able to state that Mrs. Martin, shot by the negro desperado Wilson some weeks ago, is in a fair way ot recovery, indeed is recovering rspidly. There will be a ball at the Franklin House, iiaieigh.on Thursday night, given by Uncle Tom and Aunt Mary, those "old time" servants, who now have it in charge- Electioneering is going on hot and heavy, and there are more men who wish U ssve the country by going to the Logis lalure and Congress, than were ever hesrd of before. M yrs lsy, the woman who killed Gus Banks was brought out yesterday before Judge Flippin on a motion to uuash the indictment. Jud Flippin, however, ustained it, and remanded the prisoner to jail. Mr. H. G. Hollenberg, the agent of the world -renowned Chlckertng pianos, left the city yesterday tor a trip to New ywk And ineKaat, to OU orders tor organs and pianos tor prominent parties in the city. It is said that Mons. F. La Tigris, d ler in hair and hair worka, who went to Karope la the spring, hsa been con scripted in France, and has written borne , q -egard to it. We hope It is not true. Judge Harry Lee was out on the streets yesterday, for the first time in several days. He ban been confined to his room with a severe billons attack. We bop be will soon be thoroughly re covered. Nothing has as yet been heard of t be missing party of whom we spoke yester day morning. It is feared that he has Wn foullv dealt with in some manDer, and bis friends grow mors solicitous ftr his safety hourly. We were informed yesterday that the resumption of work on at. Msry's Church is not under the auspices of Father Schneider. Whoever has It In charge de serves sll encouragement and aid in his lsuuable undertaking. A paragraph having appeared In the l.t t an- of yesterday to the effect that Colo nel K. C. Gist, late postmaster, was about to leave this city for Mississippi, the Colonel has authorized us to say he has no idea of leaving Memphis and will not leave. We are pleased to learn that the ad vertising sgeucy of Mr. Robert P. But ton, of Lynchburg, Virginis, is in a flour ishing cottditlon. Mr. Button is a reliable and energetic gentleman, who fulfils bis contracts to the letter. A meed of praise not deserved, we regret to say , by all the agencies througuout the country. A remarkable change of the weather succeeded the rainy spell of Sundsy snd Mondsy, and night' before lsst the ther mometer fell to 76" Fahrenheit, at which figure it stood at o'clock yesterday morning. At half psst 10 o'clock it wss at 7H From to 10" cooler thsn it has been for several weeks. There turns out to be no truth in the rumor circulsted by a morning paper yes terday of trouble between the negroes and the whites in the bottom between Wolt and Uatche rivers. Nothing is known of it, at least at theSherifl's office, by the police, or by parties who came in from that region yesterdsy. Hans Margum was assessed fo0 yes terday by the Recorder on the charge of drunk and assault, and vagrancy, tie appesled. Hans is wanted in North Ala bama, whore he not long ago committed a desdly sassult on a citizen for refusing to treat him. If we are not mistaken there is a reward offered for him in one of the counties of North Alabama. Sometime during the month of last December Mr. John L. Cocke, book keeper for Newton Ford A Co., was robbed of s watch and other articles, to the value of $150 to $200. Suspicion sttached to a negro named James Kobinaon, in Mr. Ford's employ st the time, and lately the case wss put in the bands of detective John Kelly, who yesterday arrested Rob inson, and" on searching him, found the wstch on his person. A warrant for his committal was taken out before 'Squire Miller, yesterday, and he was sent to j ail He will have an examination this morn ing at nine o'clock. A correspondent of thjV Atpbai., wriiingfrom allev Springs Miss., on the loth inst., says: "I rode out on mv plantation this morning, and to my sur prise I met an army in tbe shape of the army worm far more superior in numbers than tbe armies of Prussia and France combined ; and I have no doubt that tbe worm will be more distructive to the South than the war in Europe. We had the heaviest rain last night of tbe season In this neighborhood It has rained for the last three weeks. Thank God, I will have corn enough." Of all painful things, can there be any so excruciatingly painful as a bone felon We know of none that Mesh is heir to; snd as this malady is quite frequent and the subject of much earnest consideration, we publish a late recipe for its cure, given by that hign authority, tne . -union ism cet: "As soon as the pulsation which in dicstes the disease is felt, put directly over tne spot a lly ouster about the size ol your thumb nail, and let it remain for six hours, at tbe expiration of which time, directly under the surface ot the blister, may lie seen tbe felon, which can be in stantly taken out with the point of a needle or lancet." We learn that the negroes of Mechan icsville, Twelfth District, intending to give a grand barbecue to-day, yesterdsy sent into tbe city by 'Squire' Holman an invitation to the Democracy to send out some speakers to expound the Demo cratic doctrine to them. They are tired, they say, of bearing it as represented from tbe moath of lying Radical scalla wsgs and carpet-baggers, and tbev wiah to hsve the word pure and undefiled. We understand that several talented speakers are going out and will address these col ored people, who seem so anxious to hear tbe truth. Col. Chas. McLain, the Nestor of the Tennessee press, was robbed tbe night be fore last by soma infamous vagabond of a thief, who " bad not the fear of God be fore his eyes," of all his wearing apparel, including boots, shoes, hats, etc. When informed of tbe robbery, at an earl' hour yesterday morning, we' are told that Col. McLain simply did not remark : " The Rest in the world, the in the world." On the contrary, it is hinted that he cursed a few. We earnestly hope that the grace less scamp who took the articles of cloth ing may never tske another drink until be brings them back, or new ones in their place. Mr. Georges, in Montevideo, 8. A., preserves meat by immersing it in a liquid composed ot Bo per cent, water, and s mixture of glyeriu with acid sul phite of soda and hydrochloric acid, and afterward strewing dry sulphite of soda upoini, mm sealing uoiuioiivtui in cnus. After the lapse of a year the lleeh was perfectly fresh. Before using, it must be rinsed with dilute vinegar, and left ex tiosed for a short time in the air. Meal thus prepared costs, -n Pans, hve cents a pound, and is ssid to be a valuable article ot lood. Meat can aiso De Kept periecny sweet by being immersed in melted paraffine, and when required for nse only needs to be greatly heated to melt off the covering of paraffine, which can be saved for further use. We noticed by the telegraph yester day morning, that our precious repre sentative Roderick Random Butler had been arrested for forgery. If the in dictment included perjury and robbery it would come nearer filling the bill. He perjured himself when he took the oath to sustain the Constitution of the United States, and then violated it, openly and knowingly, by voting for and sustaining acts "outside the Costitution," and it was so ac knwledged by 'the miscreant when be thus c-as) his vote. That his ilk are rob bers all, is a fact too well known to need a word of argument tbey make It their boast " KUjloi pote J'arga" and they have acted the thief's part in their every act since they have been in power. We might even add in troth murder to the indictment, for bow many an innocent man now monlders in his grave, the vic tim of their infamous legislation T We understand that the prince of showmen, Robinson, bss signified it his pleasure to devote half tbe proceeds of his afternoon performances to-day to the Church Home, one of our most needy and most deserving charities. We hope this announcement will be sufficient to fill the circus to overflowing. It ought to. Tbe appeal of the orphans should never pass unheard. We must succor and help them. What easier way than by a few boura of pleasure In the tents of Robinson, whose circus has never baan surpassed .' We have never had such s menagerie ss thst which is an especial attraction at Robin son's. Outside of tbe great Zoological gardena of Europe there is no auch collec tion of wild animals anywhere to be seen. Parents should send their children. They will find both amusement and instruction. and they will have a real pleasure in tbe knowledge msi wnue enjoying Dotn tney are contributing to tbe support ol our or phans, who, without father or mother, must look to tbe public to protect them. We hope tbe tents of our old and gener ous friend will be filled to-day. One of tbe oldest educational institu tions of Tennessee is tbe Columbia In stitute. It hss been in existence for many years and has graduated many among the leading and most cultured women of the South. The system pur sued at tbe Institute ia well calculated to call out and encourage the growth in children of all tbe better elements of tbeir natures. It partakes of the practi cal and seeks to make of those subjected to it useful members of society. What ever a woman may be aa a lady using the much-abused word in its original signifi cance I she can be after abe has passed tbe educational ordeal of a school where Isdies preside, and are hearty workers in s good causa. Tbe institute is under tbe patronage of the Episcopal Church, Bishop iuintard being Visitor, and Rev. George Beckett, Rector. Mrs. Martin, tba prin cipal, ia a lady of experience, admirably fitted lor her work aa an educator, and conscientious in tba performance of It. She is assisted by a corps of teachers pos sessed of every quality that can contrib ute to success, and to sustain tbe old-time prestige of the school. If tbe graduates of the tnatl' ute will only exert themselves in its behalf, they can crowd Its balls aa of old, and sustain it in a atyle equal to its palmiest day. Tbe notorious Phil Cunningham, one of tba most desperate and incorrigible of tba negro vagabonds that infest the city, walked into Clark's jewelry store yesterday, and aaked to see some rings. Mr. Cloudman, tba polite and gentleman ly attendant, not knowing the character of the desperado, immediately took out a tray of rings, auch aa he aaked to see, and 1 seed it on tba showcase before him. unniugham picking out one of tha heaviest eighteen carat rinoa in the tray turned and started out of the store. Tha mamaer of arranging tbe counters in Clark 'a gay the thief not lew loan twenty yards tba start of Mr. Cloudmsn. but that gentleman Instantly started after blm. Mr. Affllck, on the opposite side of the store, had meanwhile been an observer of what had occurred, and clearing lbs railing whloli separated bim from the door at a bound, be pot after Cunningham, raising the hue and cry aa he did so. Up the street tbey went "at fearful rate, pursuer and pursued." Cunningham turning down South Court street toward Gaa on 'a, and Affllck close after blm. with his coat tail aiandim out at an angle of fortv-five degrees, and crying " atop, thief!" at every jump. Tbe cbsse was brought to a close by txmstsoie Maiiory, wno inter cepted tbe fleeing Cunningham Just be fore be reached Second street, and took him into custody. The ring waa quickly returned to its owner, aud Phil, now languishes In tbe gusrd-bouse. Yesterday afternoon, while passing through tbe park, we saw a negro girl, fourteen oi fifteen years old, in charge of a couple of intanta, one apparently two years, and the other not more than aix months of age. The baby was in a little carriage, and tbe other little one was tod dling about iu the walk. Suddenly it stubbed its toe and fell, and as it did so, cried. The girl rushed at it, seized it, and instead of trying to soothe the little creature, shook it violently and slapped it, frightening it to silence by her devilish visage and ssvsgo tbrests. Tbe baby at this moment, its face having been turned to the sunlight, begsn to cry, and the girl Hew at it ilka a demon. She seized it in her hsnds, took It out of tbe carriage, and waa about to shake it ss she had done the other child, when an elderly negro woman ran up to her and upbraided her for hor cruelty. Words passed be tween them, and not until the young wench noticed that her conduct was at tracting the attention of several white persons, did she place the crying infant back iu its carriage. She theii seized the cider child and seated it in the vehicle with a slam that asid as plainly as words. "I'd murder you if I could," and moved off with them. The reporter stood a Bllent spectator, wishing that the parents of tbe little innocents could see into what bands they were intrusting them. A WARNING. The Cheapest Not Always the Beet-The St. Louis Bell-Treble Piano. The Pianos combine all modern lm provements, are made of the best materi al, have a most per.'eci evenness oi scaie, nossess that singing quality of tone so de sirable in a piano, have power and quality of tone, delicacy of touch, durability and general excellence of workmanship, and ueautv of finish. They have gained by these qualities an enviable reputation as cood and reliable instruments. Their bell-treble surpasses anything ever at leuioted in the improvement of the tre hie. No inferior instruments are allowed to no out of their factory, but they en deavor to excel all makers by producing a perfect instrument only, and thereby se cure the confidence of the public. These pianos are excelled by none, on account of tne perfection oi eacn anu every instru ment. Possessing the advantage of Mis- sishipdi v aliev manufacture, tney certain ly merit the attention and patronage of our citizens. Messrs. Wildo, Collins A Co., 191 Main street inn stairs I. are the popular general agents of this celebrated instrument, and extend a cordial invitation to an to can and Bee them. A large number have been sold since their introduction here. The following speaks volumes: Jfpsos Female Institute, 1 Makion, Ala. j One of the pianos of the St. Louis Man ufacturing Company has been recently purchased for the Musical Department of the juuson retnaie insiuuie, anu nas given entire satisfaction. In superiority of workmanship, richness and purity of lone, and evenness aud elasticity ot touch, I consider it unsurpassed. I take pleasure in recommending the in struments manufactured by this Com pany, as among the best that have come under my observation. A. J. BATTLE, President DARTMOUTH COLLEGE. Generous aud unselfish conduct should be honored and appreciated, no matter when or where. The course lately pur sued by a celebrated institution of learn ing in the North, affords an illustration di rectly in point. Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, has, tor more than a century, held a position not surpassed for science and discipline, ana in the distinc tion attained by its graduates, by any collegiate institution in America. Its historical associations go far back beyond the Revolution. .Many of the mighty men ol our country were educated there. It was the asVM inalcr of Webster, Wood bury, Choate, Cass, Redlield, oods, Perly, besides a great many others, the lirstand foremost men ol their day. This institution has lately done an act, which shows that they who preside over its administration are capable of rising above the prejudices and sectional feel ings which constitute, unfortunately, the bane ot our time. Dartmouth is tJongre gational in its church tendencies highly Calvanistic in its theology. Yet It has lately conferred upon one of its gradu ates in this cltv, Hon. Robert R. Heath, the high degree of LL. D. (Doctor of Laws). Judge Heath is a member of the Catholic Church. Dartmouth is iu the extreme North, and concurs with the jo litical sentiment of that region in its po litical views. It preserves a " roll of honor " of its sons who served in the Northern arim" against the South. Judge Uealh was a warm and active advocate of the rights of the South, and abided the fortunes of his sectiou and his people, as be had always said he would do. Dartmouth College, casting aside both religious aud national prejudice, hss, with tho anection of a mother tud6ed, watched the progress and treasured the ability. moral worth and growing reputation of her far-distant son (Judge tleathi, and has bestowed on him the highest ot hon orary degrees associated with secular pursuits, the writer or this nas known Judge Heath for thirty years, and knows that the honor was worthily bestowed on him; but it is not for the purpose of complimenting, or drawing special attention to Judge iieatn that this is written. It is, that the proper de- ree of honor and respect may- be awar ed to old Dartmouth, for her noble and generous course. It shows that neither religious intolerance nor political bitter ness find an abiding place within her walla. It shows that she toels proud oi the reputation and distinction of her sons, no matter where destiny may nx their abode. This compliment to Judge Ueath ia a very high one of which be may well feel proud. At the same time he may well feel proud of his time honored alma mater, for her magnani mous course. JUSTICE.

JMMai't Appeal With your permission I will briefly respond to tba very flatter ing call made on me through your columns on tba 10th lust., to become a candidate for the lower house of our next Lastialature. To tbe kind friend whose partiality promoted so complimentary a notice of my tnrtiie in connection with a position so honorable and of such grave responsi bility, i tender my grateiui acknowledge ment, and I should be most happy could I believe that tbe people of Shelby county, with whom i have long lived, and with many of whom I have with my reeoie ability labored to hurl from place and power the hated minions ot usurped authority, . sympathised with blm in tbe kind sentiments so well ex pressed In his letter. Leaving tne question of merit and qttal- ficstion alone to the delegates In conven tion, whose province it Is to determine, snd arrogating to myself no claims not ahared iu common with many of my co la xirers wnose names nave likewise been mentioned, I have only to say. tbst should I receive the nominstion and be honered as a representative of Shelby, the banner county of the great State of Tennessee, my constant endeavor, and highest ambition, will be to discharge my duty with efficiency, credit and satisfac tion. Toward my many friends who hsve given me assurance of encourags ment and support, I shall ever entertain the kindeat feelings of gratitude; and trusting that the Convention will do jus tice by all, I pledge myself to abide its decision st sll events. Respectfully, S. W. GREKN. LETTER PROM T. n. NORMENT. Editor Appeal During the lsst few weeks many of my ersonsl friends in Shelby and Fayette coantiea have solic ited ma to become a candidate to rep resent this Senatorial District in tbe next State Legislature. I have uniformly ex pressed s determination not to become a candidate; and now that a public call has been made through the columns of tho Ai'PEAL, 1 deem it due to myseit aud to mv trienas to make tuts nuniic avowal of my views through the same medium. The ravages of the late war did not leave me unscathed. 1 sullered in tne common ruin which overtook all that were true to their principles and their peo ple and their section. I am struggling to recuperate my wrecked for tunes, and to make comiortaoie a large and dependent family, and I do not feel that I can trive the time, expense and in jury to my business which a canvass would demand of a candidate. I would not consent to the use of my name before a Convention, only as the last means of producing harmony to the parly; out be lieving no such contingency win arise, i desire that my name should not be con sidered before the people or a Convention, and that the party harmonise on some good man. I nave given four years of in sessant toil to the party now triumphant in Tennessee. This labor of love was prompted by a sense of duty, entirely devoid of personal aspirations of any kind, except the ambition of see ing my people and my country freed from the rule of a party which has brought ruin upon the tax-paver, anu strne ana hate, where nothing but harmony and concord should dwell. This greatest de sire of my life has been accomplished, and there is one other still dear to my heart, and that is the earnest desire to see the Democratic party harmonions. Fe alty to our party, is the duty oi tne nour. Let no man stand in the way of triumph. Our success should not be imperiled on account of the nettv aspirations of men. Hoping that the deliberations of our con ventions will be harmonious, anu express ing my profound gratitude for those par tial inenus wno nave privately anu puo licly solicited me to become a candidate I am, very respectfully, THOMAS B. NORMENT. REPLY OP M. D. WELCH.

If (ieneral William Wallaco will allow his name to be used as a candidate for Congress, he will receive a large and en thusiastic support. We know him and his past record, and both are strong enough to deteat any ring or combination, which ambitious schem ers may form against him. So we call on General Wallace, the scholar, the soldier, the statesman, and the true and tried Democrat, to announce himself as the candidate of the MECHANICS, "CLAY Oi THE HAN PS OF THE POTTER."

John Robinson, Esq.: Having long acquaintance with you as one of tbe most distinguished among those wbo, by public amusements, are engaged in gratifying and giving pleasure to the community, and knowing withal the character you bear as a charitable and liberal man, we take the liberty of ad dressing you for the put pose of procuring from your liberality some aid In building the grand Masouic Temple, subscriptions for stock in which are now being tsken in our city. Being, as we learn, a member of the Masonic Order yourself, we know you will fully appreciate the utility of the contemplated erection of such a temple from which to dispense r.he charities of the Order. If it shonld stilt your views to give the net proceeds of one of your superior entertainments to this purpose, it will be received with tbe thanks and gratitude, not only of tbe members of tbe Order here, but also of all Masons and charitably disposed persons elsewhere. With great respect, we remain, yours respectfully, F. M. Cash, H. H. Hiorek, A. J. WnEELER, J. M. Pettiurew, P. M. Stanley, F. A. Tyler, Joint Committee Masonic Temple. Memphis, Angust 16, 1870. Messrs. F. M. Cash, H. H. Higbee and other members of Committee Masonic Temple : Gentlemen Your favor asking a ben efit for the Masonic Temple has been handed me, to which I cordially respond. Hsving previous to tbe reception of your communication, promised a benefit to tbe Church Home of your city, I am con st rained, by my limited sojourn in Mem phis, to tender you the net receipts of one exnioiiion jointly wilt: that institu tion. It your committee and the man agement ol the Church Home will honor me by accepting the net receipts of an exhibition of the menagerie and circus, to take place on Wednesday, Auguat 17th; at 2 p.m., I am at your service. ery respectfully, yours, JOHN KOBINSON. If the generous tender of this benefit by Mr. Robinson is not suitainod by the people of Memphis in overflowing num bers, we shall be much disappointed. Tbe canvas will hold several thousand, and it ought to be crowded. COUNTY AFFAIRS. Report ef tbe last Grand Jury of tbe Crim inal Court. Hon. J. R. Flippin, Judge Criminal Court Shelby county. Sir We, the members of the Grand Jury, for the July special term of your honorable court, being now about to cloae our labors, respectfully report: That in the discharge of our duties, we have had before us aa witnesses in various cases, citizens from all parts of our county, and the patience of the pooplo appears en tirely exhausted iu contemplation of the numerous crimes committed throughout this county, and it seems to be the deter mination of our cilitens to igorously en force the penalties of the law against all offenders, they being encouraged in this resolve by the efficiency and vigilance displayed by our worthy Sheriff and as sistants in promptly arresting and bring ing to trial violators of the law. We find that the instigating cause of msny cases of violence arid murder is traceable to tbe too prevalent habit of carrying concealed weajsins, and although it is evident that this practice exists to an slarming extent, we find it very difficult to procure sufficient evidence for indict ment, except after the perpetration of some act of violence where weapons are used, in which cases we have returned bills, aud respectfully recommend that the provisions of law relating to this of fense be rigidly enlorced. We regret to say that In our examinations the un pleasant fact bas been revealed, that many of our most respectable citizens are engaged (directly and indirectly through agents) in encouraging crime and oflending justice, by permitting pro perty on our most public streets and thoroughfares to be occupied as houses of prostitution, when under the existing laws relating to landlord and tenant, there can be no reasonable excuse for so doing, and in the discharge of our duty, we regret the necessity that baa required us to indict many worthy citizens lor the above offense. In our visits and examination of the County Jail, -:County Poor-House, snd City Station-House, we have found each and all those institutions in a remarka bly good aud cleanly condition, and well regulated and conducted iu every respect; and the officers thereof in charge and control are entitled to much credit for their management, efficiency displayed in discharging their duties, and in in augurating a needed reform over the management of the past. We urge upon the proper authoritie the great importance of immediately making some provision for the govern ment of those pests oi our city known as "Mackerels." Houses of refuge and correction are, we believe, more needed than any thing else that the public moneys could be expeuded for. We also regret to say that keepers of bawdy houses, gaming bouses, and others, seem heretofore to have been prosecuted as a source of profit to officials, rather than with the view ot suppressing the evils: but in this honorable court we hope and believe we see the indications of a mucn-neeueu reiorin, and recognize in your Honor the evidences of a faithful and efficient Judge, who gives promise of proving "an ornament to the bench," and "a terror to evil doera." In Luke E. Wright, Attorney General, and Marcus J. Wright, Sheriff, we find faithful, vigilant and gentlemanly officers, who will do tbeir whole duty, without fa vor or prejudice, and we congratulate Shelby county in tbeir fortunate selec tion. In the other officers of the court we have witnessed nothing which does not command our approbation, discharging their duties with industry ani gentleman ly bearing and to all we return our sin cere thanks for courtesies shown us while connected with your honorable court.

The Olive Branch passes down this evening for Vicksburg and New Orleaus. She is an elegant passenger packet, and Captain John T. McCord, her master, Is not only one of the best steam boatmen, but is also one of tbe most agreeable and polite ollicers upon the river one with whom it is a pleasure to travel. Mr. Ed Hawks is clerk. The Alaska left New Orleans with 3300 bars of railroad iron. Major Robinaon, of the Arkansas Pack et Company's office in this city, left yes terday for the East. The Julia, Captain Townsend, with Jimmy Thompson in the office, leaves to day for Cairo and St. Louis. She con nects with the trains North and East. The Pat. Cleburne is said to be very last since her late improvements. Her grate bars were lowered, fire walls extended, and several feet added to her chimneys. She now comes up stream twelve miles an hour without any crowding. Captain Rube Haynes returned yester day from Crab Orchard Springs, Ken tucky, where he has been spending the summer with his family. Tbe sale or tbe M. J. Wicks and C. B. Church takes place to-day. It ia hoped there will be a large attendance at the sale, as such an opportunity to secure two splendid steamers may never agsin occur. The steamer Mason, as she now lies high and dry on a sandbar in the St. Francia river, will be sold at auction to day, after the Wicks and Church are sold. One of the new Arkansas river packets now building at thia pert for Major John D. Adams, will be launched on Saturday next, at 5 p.m. We have no doubt that tbe launch will be witnessed by a large number of our citizens. The new boat will be called the J. S. Dunham, after J. S. Dunham, Esq., editor of the Van Buren (Ark.) -Press. The other boat also in course of con struction will be called the John P. Wheeler, in honor of the editor of the Fort Smith Herald. Editors are highly esteemed in our sister State. Captain Patterson, of the ill-starred Sil ver Spray, is not well engaged at present in Cincinnati, at least we should judge so from extracts in the papers of that city, in which he talks freely of "river pirates" above Memphis. Captain P. forgets that these same " river pirates," as he calls them, helped to rescue the passengers and crew of tbe lost steamer, and after tbey were rescued, did all that lay in their power to alleviate their wants until the City of Cairo came along. Captain Pat terson is a wolf, and tbe little interest he took to identify bis brother-in-law, Cap tain Jordan, and his father-in-law, poor Thad. Wirthlin, ia pretty good evidence of the fact.
