Pete was sfely lodged iu jail, any how, in the ii.urse of an hour. Mr. Richmond, of 108 Promenade street, had a lively time of it on Mon day night. During the day thete were a couple of men employed at the house aawmg wood, and in the night Mr. Richmond thought be saw one of them return and enter a room adjacent to where he was himself, and take all the cloth. ng he could lay hands on. Rich- mofi! would have gone for his pistol, but i! was locked up iu the bureau, and he wns afraid to make a noise lest the dai key should become scared and es- caiw When the thief, however, had loadt d himself well up with plunder, he walked softly forth, and then the house- propi letor went for his artillery, and raising the window ireppered awav at the 'etreatiug negro. The pile of cloth ih was dropped, and the negro left bloodv tracks behind him. showing that he as shot somewhere. He made aTotxl t) is escape, but he was not so suc- sltil as Fete Johnson iu escaping rner or Linden ana Hernando streets, and distant ! rom the comer of linden andsthelby streets, where Mrs. Dix on lived, say from six hundred to eight bun dled varus. Yet Mr. Watson, a iealous minis ter. Tells us that be did not know where Mrs. ihxoii. a zealous member of his church, lived; and, furthermore, has no recollection l the mirror and picture In the parlor. L'n derstami me distinctly to say that I do not question the veracitv or honesty of Mr. Wat son i u the slightest degree. Within the past ten days Mr. Waisou related It to a p.;- . -1 1 1 -1 1 ;i-semhleil .n an offlee in this " city ; aiul. as la bis printed statement, stoutly averred that be bad never had any knowledge of the things mentioned. One of the gentlemen present had been an old friend and ' co-laborer with Mr. Watson, and hav lag a good memory, reminded him that it was very atranga tbat he should not know where Mrs. Dixon lived. -Kor,' aaldhe,"I was a guest at your house when you were snttioned at Anbury, n..,i ,,lx,, 'mlrrtiiitut. at t he same visit . at 1W If. . JwUk IMrvn ."' Here wa-savisitor who remembetsil things which the pastor w !i,r- .tutu it is to visit his flock, had lor teu. uid vet this same gentlemen has exp ed i he Dodd theory ! Now, I state distinctly that Mrs. Dix on did not live at the corner of Linden and Shelby streets when I was pastor of tl.e Asbury Church. What are the fact- . I had lived at Olive Branch, Mississippi, for several years previous. In November of 1854, (the year Judge Dixou told me be lived there;, I was stationed at " Forest Chapel and Edge woial." two country churches I had buiU the year before while living in Mississippi. On the twenty-first of Xo- vemtier, ISoo, I was appointed to Asbu ry. and served that church in 1S56. Du ring that year I made the acquaintance ot uie lamnv, l tnmK, lor tue nrst time. I know the Judge joined the church that year. In the summer of ihoo' I know he lived out of the corporation, for I was at his house once only, and then nor since was 1 ever in his parlor. In November Lb-xi, I was elc ted editor of the Mem phis L'hrigtian Advocate, since which I have had but little time to visit. I pre sume Judge Dixon knows as wei: as " Visitor" where he lived at any time, and what he says, and the minutes of the Conference make two years inter vene where "Common Sense" puts them together. Which are we to believe? And what does the public care about such lit tle matters? There was a purpose in thu- stating these things which is very obvious. His imagination, or misinfor mation was eiven instead of facts. If he iiad just said it was the office of the irstrw Jlethodint," and that ArV. C. Johnson was the " old friend and co-laborer," it would have been as well as to have thrown around it the garb of . ike open-handed, fair sailing, ami 1 should have exnii'itea it f one who has done as much sailing as ( ommon Sense ' has, I presume. He speaks or " twaddle ' in viock Atritch On'. Wonder it he Knows mat it vas to deliver a sealed letter from that office to Dr. Mansfield, written to a dead relative, that was the occasion of my going to see him? While therewith a brother minister, Mansfield wrote some thiiiirs about several parties, which causes 1 me to go again and again. 1 te-pes t "Lommou sense, out wnen he assumes to be a censor of the people of Memphis for investigating what is either oBe of the most glorious truths or one f the vilest numougs or uie age, then. I think, he should be sure he kno'i s whereof he affirms. A man who has the knowledge he possesses ought to have known that this Dodd brain the.r of accounting for thousands of fa.-:- has been abandoned by scientific men for at least fifteen years. One more point. " No operator as medium has ever told any thing to any person which was a lact mat was not wiiiitu the mind oi that person so in formed, or in that of tbe medium. If I had no other evidence that " Commiti Sense ' had never investigated this sub ject than the aoove quotation, it would be siitlicient. There are hundreds, per-hap- thousands, in Memphis who know that be is mistaken. 1 thought when I read his first article thai he was an honest inquirer after truth, w ho was just at the point where I had :-en for mouths, but I find that I am mistaken in the man. I cannot per mit myself to notice some of his al lusions: they are unworthy of the sub ject, and, therelore, let them pass tor wha; they are wortrt among an iniei liiceiit people. Hoping when he devotes another Sabbath to such an article he will tit least give us his oertonelle.

The exhibit herewith filed as part of this report presents a correct ac count of the receipts and disbursements from the first day of July, 1872, to the first day of January, 1873.

I would also report that of the warrants and certificates for jury service therein charged against the county there remain uncalled for the sum of $241H 51.

Em tor Appeal I see in your issue of this morning a correspondent, " E. . K.. asks me two PERTINENT HUE8TIONS. First "Does he claim that at the iu- tervicw between Dr. Graves and Mr. Foster, he, or any one else there present, saw th" pencil, "without any physical hand,' write Mrs. Graves's name?" Mr. Graves has answered that ques tion iu tbe Baptist of last Saturday. He sa 8 : "He placed the pencil on a piece of paper, against the underside of the taiile. We saw tbe end of the pencil move iu a moment. He held it up. Lou. S. Graves ' was written back ward and bottom upward.'' Is that answer satisfactory, "fc. W. K. ' I was sitting some distance from the table, and did not feel much interest in such experiments, having seen many things much more demonstrative, to my mind, than that, or anything that oc- ui reu there on that occasion. I remarked to Dr. Graves as we alked out that I would not give one of Mrs. rloihs meetmirs for ball a dozen with Foster. Several others of the par ty got similar tests, and they went, as Dr. Graves did, and looked at it while writing. None of tbem intimated that Foster did it, for it was physically im possible for him to have done it. He simply held the paper between his tliumii and finger, the other hand not toeing under the table. Enough, surely. of ibis. The other interrogatory is a verv im portant one: "What is Mr. Watson's deliuition or idea of 'spirit'." " I think tbe spirit is tbe real man as St. Paid calls it. the "inner man, andhesavs: But though our outward man perish. tbe inner man is renewed day by day." Second Corinthians, iv, 16: "How, then, does it become possible tor the material eye to see that which is not material?" Spirit is a substance mot matter), a re fined substance. Cilectricity as perha'w the best material agent of which we have any knowledge to represent it. I do uot believe, however, that tbe natural eye ean behold a pure spiritual being. There are those who are clairvoyant, as ience calls it, by whii-h the "inner" eyes do liehold tbe spirits, and tbe "in ner ears hear what they say to iheui. There are quite a number of such iu Memphis. ' see some of them on tbe streets every day, embracing every phase of society. This is one of the spiritual girts" meiitioneU by fst. faui 1 Cor., xii, Ml, "to another discerninit of spirits." It is just what the prophet prayed for, that his servant's eyes might be opened, so that lie could see the in visible host around them tor their pro tection. The prophet saw them and fell secure.

Bar sleeting In ommemoralion of a Drcraaed Brother. All tbe Law yers In Town Attend. Solemn Funeral Obsequies or tbe Late Bajur Edward A. Beecher from St. I.aznrua Chnreb Yesterday . Major Beecher was a bright ornament of the Memphis bar, a young man of great ability and promise, who was snatched away in his prime of life as suddenly and unexpectedly as his many illustrious professional brethren during the past year or two. A very large nnnrber of the bar met at the Chancery Court at M o'clock yesterday morning. Hon. Wm. H. Ste vens moved that Hon. Henry G. Smith tie appointed President of the meeting. The motion was approved, and Judge Smith took the chair. He announced the object of the meeting to take such steps touching the death of Major Ed ward Beecher as the bar might deem proper. He said Major Beecher bad died of pneumonia at bis residence on yes terday, and it was proper that the bar should make the arrangements for at' tending his funeral, and pass suitable resolutions, expressive of their high appreciation of his ability ami virtue, and their deep and sincere sympathy with his bereaved family. On motion of' Hon. George V. Dixon, (General AV. Y.C. Humes was appointed Secretary of tbe meeting. Ou motion of the same gentleman, the following couimitt4e was appointed to draft suitable resolutions: Henry Craft, W. H. Stephens, E. S. Ham mond, Cieorge Dixou, W. Y. C. Humes. The committee was instructed to report al an adjourned meeting to be held on Friday next, at the First Chancery Courtroom at ten o'clock in the morn ing.

A PROSPEROUS TOWN. Bolivar, in Hardeman county, gives evidence of a greater degree of prosper ity, and a more vigorous spirit of pro gress, than any town within a radius ol one hundred miles of Memphis. There is also refinement and culture of a rare order of excellence. This is the more wonderful, in view of the fact that Hardeman county sent many of her best sons into the war, of whom few re turned to tell the sad taleof afour years' struggle, unequalled in the annals of war for suffering and giant disaster on hotn sides. In Hardeman county there is still left enough of the illustrious vir tues that made her sons glorious in the held. That gallant old county is no less honored in peace. Tbe town of Bolivar attesus the virtue and public spirit of the people. That little capital of a rich county is beautifully situated on the highest point of ground in the midst of an extensive rolling section of country, and is seen from any side you may ap proach it to equal advantage. In the midst of this neat and Auburn-like little "hamlet of the plains," an elegant courthouse elevates its fair proportions toward the sunny sky that proverbi ally overhangs Bolivar. The citizens take just pride in this elegant structure. PATRIOTIC LADIES. The ladies of the town, beinirjust as patriotic and public-spirited as the men, and perhaps more so, take pride in their town and in their courthouse. They are worthy of all honor for this most laudable feature of their municipal chaiacter, if one may so speak of fair ladies. But it is not alone in municipal virtues that the ladies of Bolivar shine with unequalled splendor. THE MONUMENT. They are patriotic. In i860, when every house was covered with a pall, and all hearths were desolate, and every heart was broken or bowed down with sorrow, the ladies of Bolivar formed a little association among themselves, for the purpose ot raising funds to build a monument to the memory of Harde man county's Confederate dead. They organized a sort of harmonic society among themselves, and proposed to give a series of concerts to raise the required funds. Concerts are at tended with expense, and though these which were given by the Bolivar ladies were eminently successful, yet the net receipts were not so great as they Had anticipated. In the full knowledge that their means would not nearly come up to the realization of their high monu meuLil hopes, they made Cant. A. T. McNeal the treasurer of the society. He took the funds and put them care fully out at interest. This plan worked beautifully. For toward the end of 187:2 the fund had increased to about three thousand dollars, and for that amount a contract was entered into with Messrs. L. B. & J. Fuller, of St. Louis, for a beautiful inon umcnt twenty-two teet hiifh, which now stands on the south side of the court house, looking toward the land for which the heroes it commemorates fought and died. It was in contempla tion at first to have all the names of the county placed upon the shafts, but iu a short time the impracti- caimity ot this became evident. A shaft of that modest proportion would not oeai hair the names, even if cut in letters s small as not to be readable by ordinary eyes twenty feet from the ground. That idea was abandoned and mple inscription substituted. The last artistic touch was given to the mou: ument yesterday, and now it stands calmly and sweetly on the spot where loving nana placed it, a monument to the virtue and zeal of the ladies of Boli var, as well as to the memory of the he roic dead whom it is designed to honor. The monument stauds twentv-two feet high, and consists of a base of limestone and two sur-bases with a die, plynth and shaft of Italian marble, and is sur- niotmted with an urn full of flowers. The following is a more detailed descrip tion ui the whole work, which is credit able to ihe Messrs. Fuller, of St. Louis, the artists that put it there: Hie hrst biuie is cl limestone, four feet nine niches ly one foot eight inches: the sveoud base is a mould, four feet oy one foot three inches: the third base is of marble, three feet five inches by one foot six inches ; the die is three feet two inches high by two feet six inches square; the plynth is two teet two inches square by one foot five inches high; the obelisk, draped, is nine feet high by one foot six inches square; the urn and vases are three feet six inches high ; on the plynth is carved, on one side, cavalry accoutrements; on another, artillery ; on another, infantry; on the last, a camp scene, tents, etc. : on the die are lour sunken panels, with four up right cannons ou the corners; on the front is engraved, "To the Memory of the Confederate Dead of Hardeman County." In erecting this beautiful work the contractor had the cheerful assistance of nearly all the men iu the town. The boys who had participated in the war were all anxious to have a hand in the good work, and it was edifying to see how thev went to the Court Square ev ery day to find something to do toward the completion ol this glorious monu ment, which ' is not large, but is beautiful. THE CLOCK. The ladies were not content with pro idiug for the erection of a monument. They also resolved to have a clock iu tbeeuixilaof the new Courthouse. Their concerts were again brought into requi sition, and funds were realized sufficient to get a clock, which now strikes the hours, day and night, from tbe dome ot the Hardeman eounty Courthouse, sutti- leutly loud to be heard by half the peo ple in the eounty. This is another monument to the energy and public pirit of the ladies of Bolivar. MEMPHIANS AT THE ROCK. tbe lllusfrioas u.xens KlnflT Locate sad Flourish at Little Boeb. Memphis Pines..

Last Saturday a gentleman, living near Madison Station, on the Memphis and Little Rock road, left his home to go to the village. He had not proceeded more than two hundred yards, mounted on a lineal descendant of Balaam's ass, when he encountered a great, greasy, black hear. The bear was astonished, and withouc taking time to think, hur rieo up a scaly-bark hickory and seated himself very comfc -tably ou a limb, thirty or forty feet from the ground. The farmer was zled. If he rode to -ret his gun. surely escape. Lie mule, a long-eared, forty or rlfty years a! the tree. The mule was Dridle-wise, but no bridle would bold him, and a strong leathern cable wis kept coiled about his neck. VViih this he was fastened to the tree. The farmer started to the hou?e, and Bruin, divining his plans, deemed it proper to get away. He doubtless suspected that a gun was coming. He came slowly down, tearinii the bark from the ljoi7ofthe tree. It rattled about the sleepy mule's head, who had not yet seen the bear, and dreamed not of the proximity of the ugly beast. The bear descended slowly till he was withiu dve feet of the mule s great ugly head. Then it was that the stupid, innocent, unsus pecting mule looked up. He had never seen a !ear before. His knees smote one another. He grew pale in the face. His eves were projected from his head the tanner said half a foot. His tail was slowly lifted, the hairs all turned awrv, till it stood at an angle of forty-five degrees above his spi na: column, and then it was that the mule " hoved a sigh and smoled a smile." It was an unearthly sound : the farmer, fifty yards away, says it shook the ground where he stood, watching the progress of events. The liear suddenly twisted itself about and reascended to its perch. The mule swooningly fell at the base of the tree. He lay still and apparenly li'e les tor a time, when Bruin again attempted the descent: but the tertiiied mule howled and roared even more terribly and piteously when the bark negau to fall, and he dashed and danced about the tree so frantically that Bruin!hesitated, and finally in stupefied amazement, sat upon the limb upon which he first rested. The farmer came with his rifle and a bullet soon slopped the pulsebeats of the bear. It fell heavily Issside the mule, and strange to tell, as told to us, the mule and bear died side by side; the oue, of a mortal wound; the other, of mortal terror. The bear was still black as Erebus; the mule's (ace was already white with an indescribable agony of mortal fear. 1 UK BIBLE SOCIETY. Anpenl Irom Br.

Of the busi ness done on that day, the same paper says: "The DeSmet received about half of her cotton, and was compelled to overlay for the balance. She has en gaged to take one thousand bales to Cairo. This is the first shipment of cotton to the East this season by that route. The Cincinnati line will bave to harry up if they want any of the ' chicken pie.' " Cotton is now carried from Shreveport to New Orleans at two dollars a bale. The DeSmet is coming up from Red river and goes through to St. Louis. The unlucky star continues to shine over the Indiana. While loading at Cairo, the heavy ice crowded a coalfiat against her, breaking her guard for ward, and carried away a iwrtion of the guard and several stauncheons, just for ward of the cookhouse. The entire re pairs will not, however, cost over two hundred dollars. Friday's Cairo Bulletin contains the following: "The Mary Alice left at noon yesterday for New Orleans with four freighted barges. Two of her barges were loaded with thirty-one thousand bushels of bulk grain. She also has in her tow the barge Nellie Rogers, loaded with engines, railroad iron, etc . for the Texas aud Pacific railroad, which she will leave at the mouth of Red river. It has been here since the Bou Accord sunk the barge Florence, which iMs-urred several months ago.'' The Dexter passed up last night with nine hundred hogsheads of sugar, and twelve humlred barrels of molasses. The James D. Parker will leave on Friday next for the Ohio.
