Jen ier was a great man, and aH sound jhvsicians recognize the fact. Vaccina .io'n is very commonly practiced, and is .egarded always as a means of safety rrom a fearful visitation. No one ought to neglect it. At this particular time ;he heads of families in Memphis ought to interest themselves in this matter. The Coroner of Chicot county, a j colored man named Brown, was tried oefore the Circuit Court, recently in ses- don, for stealing, and sent to uie peni tentiary for five years. He was one of the ringleaders in the late troubles in that county, and, In company with .titers, broke into and took articles of calim from severs Ha is the onlv nerson connected with he mob against whtua an indictment i in been found. A dispatch was received by the po lice recently to the effect that a dubious character had shipped on the Belle Mem phis at Cotton Wood Landing, up the river, two mules which were suprjosed to be stolen from a man in Hickman. When the boat arrived here yesterday the police arrested the man and the mules. V df-scriDtion ot tne tnree was iinmeui- itelv sent to Hickman, and word was as (uick'.v -eut back that it was ail right, aocket will not occupy longer man weu ' hang on to 'em." The police hung on. nesday. The elegant litterateur that edits the Memohis Republican understands the i First Chancery Court Chancellor Mor- law of simile and figure to perfec ; ion. In giving a humorous picture of the Appeal's habits he says: "Itgoesabout like a mad-dog and a roaring lion, call ing for pistols and coffee, threatening io put up smallpox signs and calling .-verv citizen a thief." Every one skilled in belle lettres knows, of course, tne I common inclination of mad-dogs and roaring lions to "put up signs" and ln I dulge in "pistols and coffee."

Mysterious Recovery of a Large Nam of Money for which no On nes Can be Found. An Owner Wanted for green ketch, A very curious event transpired yes terday by the return of a large sum of money between five hundred and a thousand dollars to Captain Athy, for which there is no owner to be found tn Memphis, and for which no claim has been put in by any one. All the explanation that can be given of the curious and unaccountable affair is this: On yesterday week, being Mon day, and very damp overhead and under foot, a man by the name of A. Carter, who had lodging for himself, wife and two children at the Commercial hotel, employed a spring wagon to haul him all over the city, In order to enable him to find a good business house where he could locate. Having run about un til himself and the driver were wet to the bone, and the horse was played out, he stopped in front of Brere ton's grocery-store in Scotland. He went In to change a ten dollar bill, out of which to pay the dri ver. Whether he remained there until he got drunk appeared not, but he left ajpocket-book behind him full of money. His subsequent movements are not well known ; but he appears to have left the city by boat without, however, having instituted any inquiry into the lest mon ey, or made any effort to recover it In fact, he appears to have entirely neg lected this. On yesterday morning Mr. Brereton gave the money to Captain Athy, who now has it in his safe await ing the proper claimant. The mysteri ous individual who left it at Brereton' is thought to have gone to St. Louis with ids wife and two children. He came here on the Henry Ames in com Dan v with a man. bv the name of f 'die. from New Orleans. Does anybody know anything about this curious case ? TWO SMALL FIB EM.

When the engines got fairly operating on this blaze, another alarm was given, and .the northeastern horizon was lit up by a red glare. The dense crowd of people that surrounded the fire on Beale, so that they Interfered with the operations of the firemen, then began to disperse and gravitate toward the other excitement.
