His whiskies and sherry are espe cially remarkably fine, and Mr. Uuinn, purchasing as he does at first hands, for cash, can afford to sell for a reasonable price. The bar-room will be handsomely fitted up, but will have no thousand dollar mirrors, etc, as Mr. Uuinn says he would rather put the money in bis stock, and sell bis drinks cheaper. Messrs. O. F.

On 'he front was engraved "Sergeant City Police" and on tbo back the words "Presented to Earl (Jannt bv his friends." On rei-eiving the badge, Sergeant lisuct made the following neat reply in ac knowlejgement : "Uentlemen I accept this token of your approbation and es teem and shall ever treasure it as a dear reminder of this, the happiest moment of my me. I can not nna words sumcientiy expressive of the deep gratitude I feel tor your kin. leas, in presenting uie mis oeau ttfnl present, intrinsically valuable, but still more so, from its association on this occasion.

About three months ago Mr. Jamea Henry Redding, of 509 Grove street, New York, waa, as be supposed, not far from death's door. His physician considered a akillful one had given him up, pronouncing his complaint atrophy. He waa fearfully wasted and debilitated, had a constant pain in his right side, ate scarcely enough to keep a baby alive, and was much depressed In spirit. At this juncture, a clerk in the establishment where he had been em ployed, persuaded bim to try a course of Plantation Bitters. Last week he re turned to business; bis health being tiulte restored. The other day. while on his way home, be met the physician who attended him, when the following conversation occurred : "What!" said the doctor; "la this you?" "Even so," replied Mr. Redding, q uietly ; " Yon're not sorry to find yourself s false propbit, I hope?" "No, no; certainly not. But It's a miracle. How waa it, my dear fellow? how waa It?" Mr. R. told him the story of his recovery (sscribing it wbollyto the Bitters, andl is willing to confirm it verbally or by letter whenever applied to. FLOR DE CANTERO.

With this much as a preface, we will pro- oeea to our story. CB10KASAWOA. Two miles west ol Barfield Point, in Arkansas county, Ark., on the east bank ol the lovely stream called peniiscoii bayou, a tributary of the St. Francis river, stands an Indian Mound, some twenty-five feet high and about an acre in area at the top. This mound is called Chickaaawba. and from it the high and beautiful country surrounding It, some twelve square miles in area, derives its name UhioKasawoi. ine mouna ue rives its name from Chickaaawba, a chief of the Shawnee tribe who lived, died and was buried there. This chief was one of the last of the race of hunters who lived In that beautiful region, and who once peopled it nuite thickly for Indians we mean. From 1820 to 1831 he and his bun tars assembled annually at Barfield point, then as now the principal shipping place ot ine surrounuing country, anu oartereu Off their furs, peltries, bulialo robes and honey to the white settlers and the trading boats on the river, receiving in return oowder. shot. lead, blankets, money, etc. Aunt Kittv Williams, who uow resides there, relates that Chickaaawba would frequently bring in for sale at one time as much as twenty gallons of pure honey in deerskin bags slung to his back. He was always a firm friend of the while, a man oi gigantic stature and herculean Btrenarth. In his nineteenth year betook a young wife and by her bad two chilareu. in is.i, sue tnea anu ine old chief did not long survive her, dying in the same year, aged ninety-three or four years. Mr. W. Fitzgerald, who moved to that country iu 1822, says that ud to the time of his death, Chickasawba supplied him with game. He was buried at the foot of the mound on which be had lived, by bis tribe, moat of whom de parted for the Nation immediately after performing his funeral rites. A few, however, lingered there up to a late date, the last of them, we believe, being John East, who, in 1860, at the break ing out of the war, joined Cap tain Charley Bowen's company of the late " so-called," and fought the war through, as gallant a " reb. as auy of them, coming back home in 'tii to re turn to the arts of peace. Chickasawba was perfectly honest, ana the Desi in formed chief of bis tribe. His coteinpo rarv chiefs were l,oug rvnue, sunshine, Corn Meal, Moonshine (Mike Brennan), etc Mike Brennan and Quill buried him. He left a son named John Peme- scott. A number of years ago, in making an excavation into or near the foot of Chickasaw ba's mound, a portion of a GIGANTIC HUMAN SKtLKTON tound. Tho meu who were digging. becoming interested, unearthed the en- tin.- skeleton, and Irom measurements given us by reliable parties, the frame of the man to whom it belonged, could not have been less than eight or nine feet in bight. 1'uder the skull, which easily slipped over the head of our informant who, we win nere state, is one oi our best citizens), was found a peculiarly shaped earthen jar, resembling nothing in the way ol Indian potiery wnicn had be fore been seen by them. It was exactly theshapeof the round-bodied, long-necked aruil'.s or water decanters, a specimen of which may be seen on Gaston's dining tabic. The material of which this vase was made was a peculiar kind of clay, ancLtbe workmanship was very fine. The belly or body of it was ornamented with figures or hieroglyphics consisting of a correct delinetion of human hands, par allel to each other, open, palms outward, and running up and down the vase, the wrists to the base, aud the fingers toward the neck. Un either side of these hands were tibae or thigh bones, also correctly delineated, running around the vase. There were other things found with the skeleton, but this is all that our infor mant remembers.

There are now in this city several of the vases and portions of the huge skeletons. One of the editors of the Appeal yester day measured a thigh bone, which is fully three feet long. The thigh snd shiu bones, together with the bones of the foot, stood up In a proper position, in a phy sician's office in this city, measure five feet in bight, and ahow the body to which the leg belonged to have been from nine to ten feet in bight. At Beaufort's Landing, near 'Barfield, iu digging a deep ditch, a skeleton was dug up, the leg of which measured between five snd six feot in length, snd other bones in propor tion, Inavervfew days we hope to be able to lay before our readers accurate measurement, and descriptions of the por tions of skeletons now in the city, and of the articles found in the graves. It is not a matter of doubt that these are HUMAN REMAINS. but of a long extinct race a race which flourished, lived and died many ceniurits ago, iu those days told ol in scripture. ("And there were giants in those days.") il was sir nans tsioau, we believe. who first put forth the theory that the gigantic bones found in various parts of the old world were not human remains. This, so ill according with the popular ideas and superstitions aliout giants, was considered the rankest sort of heresy at the time. But Cuvier, the great anato mist, proved tbem, in almost every in stance, to be portions of the fossils of mammoths, megatheriums, mastodons. etc The bones that be examined, how ever, were those of such apocryphal skeletons as that found in Sicily iu the early part of the eighteenth century, tnree hundred eel lung, of "Bucart," found at Valenoe in 1705, thirty feet hinh, of the "chevalier Rinoon," found at Rouen In 1609, etc Within the past century there have been numerous well-attested instances of giants over eight feet in flight for in stance, Cotter (O'Brien), who was eight teoi seven inches, Byrne, eight leet six nches, and McGrath seven feet nine inches high all of whom were exhibited throughout Europe. At the present time we recall but one living giant over eight feet in bight Chang, the Chinese giant, there is a gian'.ess who was ex ibited through the South in 1654-6, a Miss Henrion, if we remember rightly, who was seven feet nine inches, etc. With these individual instances before us, and knowing the enormous size of almost the entire population of portions of KenluRKy, we do not need to be des ciples of Herron, the French academician ( who bel ieved Adam was one hundred and twenty-five feet high, Noah twenty-seven feet, Moses twenty feet, and so on down to the era of Christ, when the decrease stopped ) to be convinced that the race of aboriginal men who built the large mounds in various parts of the country were of gigantic frame and enormous stature.

JAMES R. WILTON, Sec. American S. M. Co., N. Y. Now York, July 30, 1870. On Saturday last a negro man passing through this city en route for northern lexas wss walking down Main street and when betwesa.the Overton Hotel and Adams street (we will not be particular just fiow aa to the locality) was seized by the loppei of his coat by one of those spiders who sit out in front of a stock of " hana-ine-downs, and Importuned to buy a auit of clothes. The negro an houest, ignorant fellow from V irginia told the spider that be had but little money, and that he waa on bis way down the country to go to work on a farm. "You vanta to work?" says the spider, "dat U-shoost vst I vants 'Ow you like to be porter in mein sen to re? all you will bave to do will be shoost garry to boon- dies home." Negro "I'd like it right well, boss. How much will yon gin me?" " Vot 1 geefayou,eh? Vot you deenka you get vere you goes?" " Fifteen or tweuty dollars a month and found data what ue circlar say, envhow," answored the darky. " Vifteen und dwenty tarler a muntl" contemptuously answers the spider ; " vy, you makes dem mooch in yon tay somedimea yen you works mit me. Mein Gott, vot a goot colored mans so fine a face I neffer seed in my porn days. Oncle, I say: you shoost engage yourself mit me 1 glfs you vot brice yen ax."

(hesitating a little) no spose you cornea Moonty mornin', bright und early, I geef you to morrow." "All right, boss." "'But ssy," says the spider, "I can't hire you mit dem glose on.

He knocked around town on Sunday, proud of bis new garments, and apent his remaining fivo dollars for his board and lodging, etc. Monday morning bright and early he presented himself at the store ready to go to work. The indi vidual spider whom he bsd seen on Sat urday was not there, but in his place was a little sleek, round faced, red cheeked, pig-eyed individual who sidled up to him when he came in, anu asaeu in suarji, quick tones, say neeger, vots you vantsr "l ie come to go 10 wora, uuos, for dat ar man what I seed here Satur day."

"Den you ain't gwine to hire mo?" Baked the darky. "Hire you? or I vants mit you? tou shoost go rigb: avay, or I makes de police takes you up like a vagrant data vot I do!" Witn this threat the poor darky went away, and while wandering around without a cent in bis pocket, no work and no chance of any. he stumbled into the Adauis street station-house, where he told his story to officer Pat McElroy and Mr. John Gibson. Pat, with the usual promptness for which he is noted, in the dis charge of his duties, carried the darky to 'Squire Miller, to whom he re peated hia story. 'Squire Miller, after listening to him patiently, and weighing the matter carefully, ad vised him to go to the man from whom he had bought the clothing, and tender them back to him. and demand the return oi his money. If the dealer refused to take the clothes and return the cash, the 'Squire told the darky to come back, and he would then take some steps to see justice done him. Offi cer McElroy accompanied the negro back to the store, but, as before, the proprietor was absent, snd the young man wno had told the negro that he had gone to New York, repeated the story, adding that he had gone to remain some time, and had taken bis money with him. The officer, convinced of the falsehood of the state ment, remained around for awhile, but could not aee the individual. The negro, disgust edCal the treatment, aud having an opportunity to go to work down the river, left town. No sooner was the coast clear than the individual who was hiding out, resumed his place in front of his store to inveigle some other unsuspecting and innocent person into his den, and there swindle him. This is another of the ways taken by citizens ( ? oi Memphis to induce travelers and stran gers to invest in our city. One th'ng sure, these chaps can never be taunted with the language of Matthew "I was a stranger aud you took me not in ; naked and ye clothed me not." Like this poor darky, most (Strangers are taken in clothed and done for. Mr. J. Ed. Steawy, of Ksabvlllo, Brought Hon Charged with Havlag beoa Bribed Wnlie StvamtMt Inspector. COURSE OF TRADE.

The Emeraonlans have just concluded a very successful engage uieu at tho Olympio Theater, St. Louis, and the Republican of that city says: "The Olympic re-opened last night with Billy Emerson and his talented minstrel company, which has been reorganized and strengthened, both in numbers and talent, and is now, without doubt, the best or ganization of the kind that ever visited St. Louis. Tbe company Is composed of first-class artists in all the specialties per taining to ' burnt cork ' opera, and we congratulate Emerson upon his suooeaa in getting together such an array of talent. When all perform so welt the different roles assigned to them, it is rather a diffi cult matter to particularize. One thing, not noticeable or uaual in organizations of this kind is, 'an absence of worn-out acts and stale, stereotyed business. Every thing seems to be new, fresh, original and sparkling, and performed with a vim that adds a charm seldom ex perienod in attending entertainments of this kind. We bave Indorsed Billy Emerson's peculiar excellence on so many former occasions, that there seems little more to be said, only that Billy, ' like old wine, improves with age.' Prominent In the company is Mr. Jamea H. Budworth, an artist of rare merit, who, by kis great powers as a mimic and comedian, has become fully established as a favorite, and in his line has few equals, and no supe riors. Messrs. Hall and Wilkes are fine artists in their respective specialties, and assist in keeping the large and apprecia tive audiences in excellent humor. Tbe splendid orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Boyd, is one of the best we have ever heard, and the whole entertainment is of rare excellence. The company has drawn immense houaea since tbe opening night, and. from the appearance of the box sheet, will oontinue to do so until the close of their engagement." It is needless to say we hope the Theater will be crowded on Monday night, and that the managers will bave a toretaste of the success that awaits them at tbo hands of the Memphis theater-going public. Among the dramatic stars engaged to make their appearance during tho season, wears authorized to name the folio wins: Mrs. D. P. Bowers, Lucille Western, uominicK,ruurray, nooert Mcvv ade with his version of Rip Van Winkle. Besides these, tbe following combinations will make their appearance; The Fox A De nier Pantomime Troupe, Lingard, Mrs Oataa' Troupe, Wyndham & Moore Troupe, late of Wallack's, New York. Tbe Kiralfys and their Saxon Juvenile Troupe, 'and Spalding, Bldwell Mac Donough s Gaiete Oomique Gronpe of Specialties, an organization numbering over forty people, and composed of tbe nigntesi oraer oi talent Known in Amer ica. Tbe entertainment will be very sim ilar to those given at the famous London Alhambra. This organization will leave New York for Memphis on the 4th of September; opening here on the 12th, and remaining but six nights. In closing.fwe will just remind the readers of the Ap peal that unless the Theater Is patron ised as it should be so as to pay, it will not be opened save at intervals when oc cupied by the combinations and stats named. The houaea of laat season have warned the management that, unless the theater is well tiled every night. It will not pay. We think we can promise them that if they will cater to tbe taste of our people, and give ua the beat of theatrical performances, with an occasional opera, they will fill the house in every part, and make their venture not only a navlna- but a profitable one. What Direct. rt-A Staaact laolaeoa Hoots Rsvelutiaalm tho Baalooa of a Thoroaflhfaro. '2A3 QMA HTflOH! No thoroughfare In Memphis la impro ving with greats rapidity than Front, be low cnlon. Messrs. Stewart Bros. A Fixer, and other wholesale grocery deal era, have recently bought lota not far south of Union, on the eaat side of Shelby. They have constructed buildings adapted peculiarly to ine opauani or Wholesale ;rocery dealers. The building and its ower apartments, owned and occupied by Stewart Bros. A Fixer, la filly feet wide by one hundred and nrty feet deep. One half is added to the capacity of an its menae salesroom by the broad gallery, supported by iron pillars, that extends around tbe greater portion or the lower apartment. The building, with Its end less cellar and three lofty stories, Is per fectly well lighted by a broad akyligbt near the center, and most ingenious devi ces have been resorted to by tbe ar chitect to secure perfect ventilation in the upper apartments. The bed rooms and offices, arranged and lighted esjiecially for cotton brokers, have every modern appliance and convenience. The machinery for hoisting heavy com modities from tbe cellar to the rooms above is perfect, and the heaviest bales and boxes may be raised without an ef fort. This portion of Front street, recently unknown to business men and to trades men irom the country, now becomes am popular a resort aa any In tbe city. The course of trade is wholly unaccountable. No one can tell wby tbe current of busi ness flows southward with that of the Mississippi, or why business extends more rapidly toward tbe mounds than in tbe direction of Wolf river. The fact is not the lesa palpable that South Front street speedily becomes the point of con centration of tbe heavy grocery and plantation supply trade of this city. If no other fact induced this conclusion, we would be led to adopt it because Stewart Bros. A Fizer bave carried with them a prestige and bua'ness which has already added fifty per cent, to rent charges in their yicinity. THE OLD FOLD FOLKS AT HOME.

At an adjourned meeting of the mem bers of the Memphis Bar, held at Humes ft Stratton'a offlce, the committee ap pointed to draft appropriate resolutions n relation lo the death of our deceased brother, E. L. Hamlin, reported through its chairman, the Hon. Win. M. Smith, the following: as members or the Bar we are again called together in token of respect to tbe memory of a departed brother. The fre quency with which we have been simi larly convened within the last few vears is well calculated to fill us with the most solemn reflections touching the irail ten ure of human Hie, and the supreme im portance of preparation for that event which is inevitable to us all. Edward L. Hamlin was about twenty-five years of age, Intelligent, cultivated, refined, of accomplished manners, and possessed of surpassing sweetness of disposition, he won the love and esteem of all who associated ith him. We lament his loss, and will cherish ins memory. He bad been asso ciated with us in the profession but a few years ; yet he had attached himsolf to us with no common ties, and by the younger members or tne bar, among whom he was most intimately known, he was particu larly loved and honored, and his untimely end has cast a gloom over us all. There fore, as expressive of the sense of this meeting, be it Hetolved, That we sincerely deplore the untimely death of our brother, and we deeply sympathize with hla parents, brother, and relatives, in this great calam ity which has befallen them. Our tears and sorrows mingle with theirs, Hetolved, That we will attend hla fo nernal in a body. Hetolved, That these proceedings be presented to the Jdlfferent courts of the city, when they shall have reassembled, with the request that they be spread upon tbe minutes of each, and that the papers of the city be requested to publish tbem. Resolved, further, That tbe Secretary of this meeting transmit a copy to the fam ily ot the deceased. WM. M. SMITH, GEORGE DIXON, W. O. HEARD, L. M. MAK YE. M. B. TREZEVANT, THOS. B. TURLEY, W. W.

The St. Louts Timet ssvs: "Captain John Tennyson baa left the e!ty for a point on tbe White river, about four hun dred and aixty miles above iu mouth. He is to superintend the construction of a nondescript craft, to be used by a party of engineers who aie about entering upon a survey of the White, Black snd Little Bsd rivers. The survey is under direc tion of the Government, and has In view the removal of obstructions, and the im provement of navigation on those rivers." The Republican says: "The facts In re lation to the present ownership of the steamer M. J. Wicks are aa follows: Captain George H. Rea was tbe purchaser of the M. J. Wicks at Memphis, but im mediately transferred tbe ownership to Mr. John J. Mitchell, of Alton, and Mr. R P. Tanay.of this city, who are nowfher owners. Captain Barnes will be .her commander." The New Albany Ledger zivea an ac count of a rather mysterious affair. Mr. Thompson, late engineer of the Arlington, left the bouse of Captain Dowerman, ou Monday a week ago; no one knew where he went. Some days afterward, a body was recovered from the river. It was thought to be the body!of one of the en gineers of the Boss. Inquiries resulted tat ascertaining that no one from the Boaz bad been lost. Tbe body, which had been buried, was exhumed, and proved to be that of Thompson. His skull was crushed. and he had no doubt been robbed, as bis pockets were turned wrong aide out, and a large sum of money and a fine gold watch wss not to be found. Ho loaves a family at Pittsburg,
