Our thanks are due to W. O. Mans lord, of the Catholic Book Store, corner of Second and Monroe streets, for files of the latest scientific and other illustrated papers. While Mansford's specialty is t'atholic literature, all the respectable serial literature of the day will always l.o lound on his counters.

To-n?ght will be igala night at the old Varieties on Washington street. Miss Km ma Clifton, the beautiful and ac complished vocalist and character actress, will make her first appearance before a Memphis audience. The press of other cities praise her highly. She has few equals on the stage in her line, and we are positive that she will be greeted with a full house. In our notice of the private schools of our city some days ago, we omitted to mention the Brink ley Female College, the fall session commenced on Monday laat under favorable auapices. The pupils are twice aa numerous as last year, and t he corps of teachers are competent and faithful in all depart men la. This in creased interest in female education is ex tremely gratifying. We congratulate Mr. J D. Meredith, the Principal ol the achsol, ou its success, The Engineering and Mining Journal published weekly by Messrs. Western A Co., New York, is daily growing in favor with readers of scientific litera ture. If a man will take, and read care lully every number of the Scientific A merican. Engineering and Mining Jour nal and the Druggists (rcular or the Journal of Applied Chemistry, he will keep himself well up in all scientific matters, and enjoy the reading as all of these papers present facta in a popular style.

We learned last eveuing that Mrs. King, who waa shot by her husband at a late hour on Saturday night, as reported by the Appeal yesterday morning, is thanks to her good luck and not his good iiikeuuou uoi uangcrouaiy wountiea.

No other paper in Tennessee, we believe, is published every day In the year, and thereupon, for no otner reason, sue appeal this morn ing, giving a full synopsis of Mr. John sou's speech ai Usilalin, will be eagerly sought after.

They are from a "pome " entitled "I know a maid," and written by "Ah Reff," (a re--ntly imported Chinese, it ia hinted), for a paper down In Mississippi: "I know a maid whose castles high, Are built up in the air.

The City's Progress aad Resources- Document for Circulation by Busi ness Me and Property Holders. We have been furnished with proof- sheets ol the following "Recapitulation," a cnapter irom tne ionncouiiug aubuh Report of the Chamber of Commerce: TBI 1 in I M.s OF MEMPHIS. Preceding pages of this annual report give a detinue and proximately accurate idea of the commercial resources of this city A table, the aggregates of which are made up weekly, shows the qusntity or value of imports. Every fact affecting the local cotton crop la presented with statistics showing its preferred routes to manufac turing cities. Other tables show the course given products of this and sdjs oent Slates by railway and steamboat lines. The railroad system of the city aa it exists, and as It will be perfected within a brief period, is defined so clearly that this pamphlet sent abroad will enable the reader to form an accurate apprehension of tha Dresent and future resources and attractiveness of the city and of the country which sustains it. It is shown bow liberal and devoid of local selfish ness is the legislation of the Chamber ot Commerce, which proposes to give every psckel line a wharlbcat and exempt for enrn and local tradesmen from the opera tion of laws that hsd origin in indefensible local selfishness; bow it bss fostered every scheme of public improvement and aided every railway builder; how it has interposed to adjust differences between merchants, and to alleviate burdens im posed by local and State authority upon the commerce of the city; and how it bss co-operated with other cities in caus ing the reformation of Federal laws, which compelled merchants of the inte rior to pay all tariff charges at once with nnt the credit system which has given tradesmen of New York a monopoly of the business of importers. The progress of inanufacturiuu establishments, their number and capital and the rapidity of the city s expansion, wnicn expenaea in buildings completed during the past six months and nnder contract, three fourths of a million dollars, illua irate the wonderful growth of Mem phis more rapid than that of any rival in the valley of the Mississippi. In 1850 (twenty years ago) the population of Memphis was 8841; in I860 (ten years later) it was 22,623; now it ia 40,230, show ing au increase of eighty per cent, not surpassed by thst of any city of the L'nion. Meanwhile war, a calamity hard ly recognized in the north, desolated districts and States to which Memphis is indebted for all its resources. Kein- vimrated. like the fabled giant, by its fall. this enumeration of inhabitants was made in mid-summer when vast numoersorpeo nle were absent.and when an amendment 10 the charter contracts the area of the city and gives to the county 6451 of the citv s lnnaDltamt). i-opuianon iuue lost and absentees added to the aggregate, as defined by Federal census takers, make the whole number at least nny mousanu. A table, useful to merchants and muni cinal office-holders, showing the popula tion of each ward and civil district, ap pears in another place. When we reflect that the city govern ment sustains a free school system unsur i.t.-se,i in skillful management and liber aiitv of endowment by that of any like educational organization in the United states : when there are thirty-one oiher flourishing schools and academies bus tsined by individuals; when there are as many churches, in proportion to popula tion," as schools, it ia wholly impossible that they have spoken truthfully of Mem phis who have said that either life or for tune were unsafe because of any peculiar imsies of ihinkine or moral ldiosvnocra cies of the resident population. Despite misapprehensions ol facts, which cause this city to be regarded by the ignorant abroad as an arjede of murder and crime, simply because it stands on the great highway of nations at a point where villainy rests when moving with coming winter towards the South, and, when spring smiles, towards the North; despite the tardiness with which railways are connected with one another through the ciiy, ana tne conse quent diversion of traffic and travel; de sniie the want of cheap modes of inter course with neigh boriDg villages, Memphis has continued to prosper, and lis future extiaujs betore us as urigui as guueu mists of autumnal sunset, that glow in matchless splendor and rise beyond the eresi river from the richest vallev in the world. It is proper to advert to th e regret with hich the declaration of President T. A Nelson, asserting the impossibility of his reten tion of the Presidency 01 the Cham ber of Commerce, was received, not only bv the members of the association but by intelligent citizens who recognize the value of his services to the institution whose iortunee and conduct te has so wisely directed and to the city and peo ple whose best and wisest local laws owe rigin to the Chain t-or 01 commerce, jar Nelson's official relations to two potent private corporations and his own mercau tile pursuits requiring his whole time and atteution, his abandonmeut of the office which be has administered for three years past, became uuavoidable. His 110 in i- naitd successor. Colonel A. T. Lacey, will fill the poaitien worthily and well, and wc may confidently look forward to long v . a el useuiutss tor the coamoer 01 L'ommerce. THE CHAIN-GANG A Ward for the Unfortunate -A City Bride well Suggested. ASSAULT WITH AN AXE Marrow Escape of a Citizen From Hiving His Skull Split. Yesterday afternoon as Officer Fitz was passing near the corner ot Mam and Jackson streets, lie heard a noise in hall-way, and ran in to see what was the cause of it. Oa entering he saw a young uisn formerly employed ty Jake r.ily as a barkeeper and named John Straw, un armed and cowering before another kuown as Richard Jordan, who was armed with an axe and advancing on him, threatening to dash out his brains. Offi cer Fit zgi boon, with great coolness and much tact, possessed himself of the wes poa and arrested Jordan. As the case Is to be examined this morn ing, ami as there are two sides to every story, we forbear to report the version of the an air given by one side. One thing is sure: Fitz was not a particle too soon in gelling in at least for straw s safety ! PERSONAL. I know a maid that has pore faith. Who trusts Ood and His might. And who believes, though it be bite, All things will yet be right. For though she never told hi in so, If he loves her he'U let her know," The suggestion is well and wisely made that Colonel K. A. Pinson, of Dillard, Pinson A Co., in view of the declination of Colonel A. T. Lacey, should be made president of the Chamber of Commerce. Colonel Dillard would surely commend the institution to the respect and confi dence ot all Miasisaippians, quite as ef fectively as to business meu of this city. There was ns ver a Celonel w ho managed a regiment, or a merchant who conducted commercial transactions more successful ly. He has a clear head upon hia should ers and hia army history shows that he is an admirable executive officer. There was never a cavalry regiment in the Con federate service that won areater honors. that fought on toot and on horseback ss infantry and as cavalry.with grtatereci'if Colonel W ill lain R. Moore, one of the dearest-beaded thinkers and merchanta of the city, quick in apprehension, of in finite tact and tireless energv, is also sisikeu of as one of Mr. Nelsons amices aors. Mr. Moore has been a faithful sup porter of the Chamber of Commerce through all the years of its existence, and no gentleman would infuse into the As sociation greater vigor and intelligence Major Grey, a famous Quarter-Master of the C. S. A., would make a capital Di rector oeneral of the Chamber of Com merce. In fact if the Committeeatp select officers act wisely, the strength of the newspaper pre and merchanta of Mem phis may be c msolidated in earnest, active support of the institution, and strength eneu aou enacieu 11 may become an in vaiuaubls agent in promoting the pros- p-niy 01 ire ciiy. An mm hi lis utility is prtsemeu in an extract from the forth coming annual report, which should be ecallerod over th) whole eouutrv bv those interested in promoting trade and prosperity ol Memphis. Editor Appeal Having esteemed my previoaa communication of sufficient im portaaee for publication, it has drawn forth is your local columns some few re maika In relation to yonr city "chain gang," which, in a measure, have been written under a misapprehension of the position which 1 assumed upon that sub ject. To correct this misapprebonslon, and to say something which will not only prove of interest, but, it is hoped, have some influence in directing the attention of yonr citizens to a matter which at no distant day will require their moat earnest and thoughtful eonsidertion, I ask space in your columns for the present communi cation. So far as it relates to the extent to which the "ball and chain'' has been used my in formation seems to have been faulty, for you state it to have been used only once in a great while. While this be troe that a ball and chain is need at all, or that oriminala are need as street workers st all, will be an admission sufficient for present purposes. That your police officials are the perfec tion of manliness their appearance will indicate. That a "Fouche" system of vigilance pervades the entire force, and that pre cision of movement and clock-work regu larity extends throughout the ramifica tions of this intricite department of city govesSment, will not be denied. That they are kind, merciful and just to crimlnalltv will be conceded. That the "cuisine" of the prisoners is all and more than it should be. no one will Ques tion. Nay, more; thst the inten tions of the dty are caTied out, bath In spirit and letter, and that not a single dollar is appropriated by an official, be ne of high or low degree (a variety in this dsy and age), I will grant. Allowing all this and more, then, aa in my previous letter, 1 object to the system per se, aa be ing wrong in principle, degrading in its application, and lamentable in its ulti mate results. "When went there by an age, since our gieat flood," but it has been conceded that punishment has for its ultimate ob ject the reformation of the criminals. Admit this, snd it 1b the "sxletrse" of my argument, "upon which I turn and shall continue to turn," then the question must become secondary as to whether the sys tem does or does not augment the general coders, and hence it ia not an important matter whether or not the amount of labor performed by the "chain-gang" makes the system self-sustaining. The paramount duty which the state owes to society, is to see that a correct standard of morals is maintainsd through out the general community, and in this behalf its exertions should be active, earnest, never I'tHina. never ending. Presenting, as it does, so vast a field for active and thoughtful philanthropy, the sutiect of criminal reformation has mer itea and received the earnest considera tion of all those noble men and women who have bean interested in the war for the public weal, the war which virtue has ever carried on against vice, in which virtue has been her own reward, and vice her own deformity. And however much they have differed in manv conclusions, to this all have agreed that public exhibitions should not be made 0 punishment; that to do so arouses the comDative, aestrueiive, anu ODsiinaie na ture of the case-hardened criminal, and deleata tue object for which the punish ment was inflicted. Here then is the pith and marrow of the objections to this chain-gang system. We read with horror of the execution scenes enacted in the city ol London dur iDK the last century. Happily for com munity these days are ol the past, and now rarely is a criminal of any degree exposod to public view mure than can be absolutely avoided. I should be glad to pursue this train of thought ruriher, but my letter is getting lengthy. It is sufficient to say that each ana every large city has tried the chain gang, and after due experiment and a fair trial the system has been abandoned, as be ing a source ot no profit, as lending to de grade to the criminal and detnoraliz? the community. If, ss your article states further, the ball and chain is put upon only those who can be reclaimed in no other way, then sad indeed is it, for such men are lost for ever, as you may rest assured, the little remaining manhood in them will not be revived by their being sneered at, scoffed at by scoffers, and pampered like wild beasts. In conclusion, Messrs. Editors, who of us shall Bay but that there is deep down among the dying embers of the moral nature of the most hardened vretch, one little spark of Ood's love, a love for that mother who bore him, a love for that sis ter who moisteuf d his fevered lips, a love for that patient wife who yet loves him, though he has cursed her and beat her, for the good there was occo in him: a spark that may perhaps be made to kin dle into a living flame under the revivify ing touch of geutleness, of kindness, and which at last may become fit for thai " bouse, not made by hands, eternal in the heavens." Lei me end my letter by suggesting something practical. Erect forthwith a city iiridewcll. Yours, etc. FACTS AND ITEMS. Card froo POLITICAL. Cel. Latham ia Answer Sun" Correspondent. to a AMUSEMENTS.

Editors Appeal My attention baa been called to a card in yesterday's Sun, which, though erhsps not so intended, is calcu lated tojproduce the impression 1 hat I had co-operated with the Radical party, and contributed money to its support. The unknown author of the card is solicitous as to the etlect of the rumor, and thinks justice to myself and friends requires that 1 slioutu cunirsuict It. I shonld think that the numerous and liUuualihed endorsements of my political soundness, which have appeared during ine lasv lew weeats, trom so many re sponsible sources, snd so thoroughly identify ing me from first to last with the opponents of radicalism, would be a suffi (lent answer to any insinuations put t '.-th on tho eve of the convention. Does M signify nothing that during the war viz.: in August, ISoVi. here in Memphis, in me miusi of the rcuersi army, 1 wrote to the Chicago Time, the organ of the Demo cratic party, a lengthy protest against the whole policy of the war, extracts from which were recently published in the Ap peal? I here insert one or two others from the same letter: "I know abolition croakers denv the existence of L'nion men bore, and allege the popularity of the limes as conclusive evidence. There are Union men here; but they are not auouiionists anal belie v ing that the l'nion and the Consti tution are "one and inseparable," they musi oe sueni or incur the epithets 'rebel sympathizsr,'' "copperhead." etc, Mnetv-niue ot every hundred of cur Southern citizens are aiuoere, and their honesty of purpose certainly damanJa our highest respect." In condemning the tyranny of the (iovernuient, I said 'we are stigmatized as 'laiae-bearted hypocrites,' deserving to be 'rigorously dealt with' for criticising a policy which we oeneve to De eutiversive of our liber ty." Has the writer in the Sun forgotten that I presided over the First Congressional Diatriet Convention in West Tennes see to organize a party of opposition to Radicalism, and that the proceedings were published is the Memphis papers in 1865. Has he forgotten the following, which a; p -area in August, IS60, in the Aval sssaas : "Those who so unrelentingly struggle lor tne continued oppression 01 this neo pie, sbeu Id remember there is a point of endurance, beyond which forbearance cesses to be a virtuo. The issue is now directly made. The cry of 'fear oi rebel rule, 'danger to Union men,' etc., etc , can no longer lie urged. There must be no equivocation." Has he forgotten that in another letter about the same time, in the same paper, I wrote as follows: " Vote for Senter, Cub bins, Jones, Townsend and Sherrod. Hoe that each and all these names are on your ticket. Any other vote classes you with the ultra, proscriptive, vindictive and mslignant persculorsof the white man?" Does be not know that for the position which I have held for three years, 1 am indebted aa much, if not more, to my Conservatism thsn to any other cause? After my nomination had been twice re fused, through the active opposition of leading Radicals here, I concluded to make one effort. I applied to Hon. Isaac it. Hawkins, an old neighbor and warm personal friend, for the strongest letter he could give me to Colonel Nunn, with the view to removing his opposition to me. Of course, under the circumstances Colo nel Hawkins gave me the warmest po litical indorsement consistent with his well-known candor and stern integrity. Here is a quotation from his letter to Colonel Nunn: "I cannot say, nor doea Mr. Latham claim, that he is a Republi can. I can recommend mm as a good sal a gentleman, whose frankness said gentlemanly deportment will endear him to all who make his acquaintance." And now. for the further gratification cf the Sun correspondent, and any other friend. 1 never, by word, vote or money, contributed to the wwcosss of Radicalism over Democracy. I never desired its suc cess, and 1 assert that I have not a friend or an associate who ia not familiar with my undeviating opposition to tha Radical proscriptive party. Ask the Democrats of the sixth ward, with whom I have met in ward meetings, and who have received my open ticketa at the polls. Most of my friends thought no reply to this anony mous note was required, but I do so at the instance of a few who feared it might prove prejudicial among those wbo know me leas intimately.

A Reminiscence of Shiloh and Fine. - Something New HEAVY ROBBERY. Tke Steamer Pat CiekarM Robbed of all Her Silverware. Efforts of tte Police Ssccesefal f the Property Recovered. aid Most Several new and fine saloons have been opened in Memphis during the paat two or three months, aud we doubt if there ia a city in ihe Union where more taste is displayed in the fitting up of establish ments than here in Memphis. Hence, to say. which we do, that Lou. Mabb's new saloon, " The Bullet," is equal to the best, is to saw that It is a first-class esia'i lishraent in every respect. " The Bullet " is situate! in Moore A Eader's new building on Second street, directly opposite to the lower entrance to the Greenlaw Opera house, and it de rives its name from a curious circum stance one which will be most suggest ive of thirst v memories to aa who tisik Dart in the atiuictrle ou the Mb and 7th of April, 1882, around the;old Shiloh church. A'Kila tha workmen WAT A nilltiniT UD & door frame 111 the partition which di vides the reading-room from the bar, be discovered what had hitherto escaped bis attention, viz: that one of the planks was not acuud or rather that it had a hole through it. On. examining more closely he found that the hole had been made by a n-.inie bullet, which was still adhering in one edge of the plank. On calling the attention of Messrs. Moore and Eader to the fact, Mr. Moore readily accounted for tha "chunk of lead." The plank was sawed from a piue cut from a portion of the field of shiloh, where the fight raged the heaviest daring that memorable and blnodv Sundav morning. Lou. Mabb who had been hesitatins: what to christen his new place, at once determined to let thissinitu ar reuiiuisceuce remain ami to call his place after it "Thk Bullet. He sccordingly caused s portion of the cssing to be cut away, si as to expose the bullet, and there it now is to be seen by everybody. Lou s house is what every thing sbout him usually is, the very model of neatness, snd is fitted up with every ni'siem improvement, hot sua cold water water and earth closets, cool wiue cellars, etc., etc The woodwork wan done by James Spain, the plumbing by Kennedy A Smith, the gas titling by Planner v. the paintina by Leolio, and glassware iron C. N. F.rich. He will open out to-morrow morning, and invitee the public one and all to come and see the "Bullet." Old Uendryx will be on hand to receive all those that Lou cannot, and to greet his old friends generally. On Friday last the steward of the steamer Pat Cleburne while ahe was lying at the levee discovered that the entire lot of her new silverware, amounting to sev eral hundred dollars worth, had been ab stracted from its resting place in ths pantry, and was "clean gone." He Imme diately informed Capt. Reese Pritohard of the loss, sad instant notification waa sent to the Chief of Police. Officer Frank Birmingham, who first went on the steamer, waa directed by Capt. P rite hard to arrest a negro named Lynn Parham, who was serving in some capacity in the cabin or pantry. Bir mingham did so, snd took his prisoner, along with a small valise belonging to him, down to the station house. Captain Athey immediately after ar rested another negro belonging to the boat, named H ranee Jones, and also car ried him down. On sesrehing him f6 95 was taken from his pockets, along with a package of plated forks. Brance seeing that he was in for it, immediately agreed to "blow" the whole affair if allowed to turn State's evidence. The offer waa ac cepted, snd he forthwith gave the names of several others on the boat who were connected with having taken the missing plate, among ihem Lynn Parham, already arrested. Having already searched his person, the Chief ordered his valise to be opened and searched. This revealed lit erally a silver harvest, for there were found in the origins! packages bundles of table, dessert and teaspoons, dinner and desert forks, plated dinner and dessert knives, etc Officers Tom McBride and John Mc Partland next went down and arrested Charles Behner, Warren Harris and Henry Washington, and Detective Mst Selby arrested Harrison Carter, upon all all or whom they found more or less of tho silver ware, or who promise to "turn it up." There are further developments In the case, but aa the plunder hss not all been recovered ye'., and the case is set for a hearing to-day, the police prefer that we do not give them at present. Suffloe to say that a very large portion of the ware has been recovered, and hopes are enter tained of getting all of it. RIVER NEWS. GROCERS AND COTTON FACTORS. TOOF, PHILLIPS & CO.
