He occupies a cell in the southwest ranter of the jail, on the up-,t-r Moor, which is, in some respect, bet ter than the others. There are three or tour other prisoners with him, one of whom, John Mangrum. is confined for robbery, while the others are for viola tion of the revenue law. He is furnished with his meals from the I.amar House. BOYD BEFORE THE COVET. Yestenlay afternoon he was brought beta the t'nited States Circuit Court, Hi- Honor Judge H. H. Emmons, pre--:.iiuc. and, through hie counsel, asked a continuance of the trial, as he was un prepared, owing to the absence of some of his prineii'.i; v. m, .-..-. The first case then was called, being one of conspiracy to defraud the Oovern- rueiit in tbe obtaining of a claim fcj Martha J. I'pton, widow of a colored soldier, wherein she is alleged to have six children, the prosecution claiming that she had only four. Judge Emmons stated that a contin- ; cou!d only be granted for valid , which must be set forth in an affidavit, whereupon tbe counsel for the defense asked for time wherein to pre pare iL AFFIDAVIT I OR A OONTINVANi K. This ieing grauted, after the lapse of turee-uuarer of an hour, Hon. T. A. R. Xelson, senior counsel, reappeared, aud read the allidavit. which he had repared, setting forth the rea bey thought the trial should il, which was on e of important w :yi expected to prov f the claims for the said Martha J. Lpton, closing bv ex pressing the pri-oner's regret at being aiisent at the last te,rm of the court, and that, in bis opinion, owing to the pres ent state of public feeling, it was impos--ible to obtain justice at the present term of Hie court. Judge Emmons thereujiou stated that tiie court could not grant a continuance without it was shown that the defend ant had ued all diligence uie aiu uaancc o; material w itne.--. -. bnt before refusing the continuance asked.be advised Judge Xelson to be more specific in regard to the matters contained in the affidavit. REASONS FOR DELAY. Judge Nelson said that be could and would gladly do so if sufficient time was grauted, and asked uutil morning 10 prepare the same. He was well a -1 'luainted with the points in the case 11. w before the court, though he had een so pressed for time as to e unable i consult with the prisoner in regard to I other ca s ainst him, and added that ! 1 if Boyd had not so uiiexnectedlv ; ' brought to this point, he would have argued that he was really dead. He grounds for a continuance with that zeal and earnestness which alwavs char acteriif his efforts in behalf of his clients. At times he was eloquent in his appeals to the court, and every one who heard him must admit that he did the best that could have been done under the cin iiinslaii - Colonel Baxter opposed the continu ance, in a few plain, practical remarks, giving his reasons in a concise manner, for which be is distinguised. Judge Xelson closed the argument with a general review of reasons pre sented. Judge Emmons decided against the continuance, when Judge Xelson, coun sel for tbe defendant, moved that he he admitted to bail. The hour of adjourn ment having arrived, the court agreed to hear the motion at two o'clock. The hearing of the Bovd trial was re- "iimed on a motion of the defendant's counsel to give hail.for his appearance, j I John H.

Judge XeUon then asked leave to withdraw the plea of not guilty, in order to make a motion to quash tbe indict ment. Colonel Baxter objected, and hoped the trial would proceed. The court refused the request, which was not insisted on, and the trial then proceeded with the call or witnesses, when tbe jurors were then called, a loin w: William Fowler, K. H. Armstrong. A. F.

The Judge stated iu court, yester day, that the jail was the most outrage ous place for keeping human beings con fined in he had ever seen. It was so damp that the water trickled down the walls, and so dark that nothing could be seen. He regretted that it was an unavoidable necessity to confine any man in such a pestilential hole, but that as it seemed the State and county deemed the jail good enough for the safe-keeping of those in custody of the marshals aud sherills, he had no alter native. The Marshal would not send Boyd to jail last night, but gave him comfortable quarters, well guarded, iu the courthouse.

' ARKANSAS. Special I,, tho Appeal.; S HH MLLJE. Nashville, January 24. George A. Allen, a well-known cotton dealer, for merly a resident here, died yesterday in Augusta, Georgia, under such circum stances as to create the impression that it was a case of suicide. The coal supply of the city is entirely exhausted. Eleven barges from Pitts burg, for the Gas Company, are daily expected. Conversations with members of the Senate and House strengthen the im pression that the school and tippling laws will be materially amended during the present session ; also, that the law requiring insurance companies of other Mates to deposit twenty thousand dol lars will be repealed, because of its inju rious effects upon Tennessee companies doing business elsewhere.

The hank had received from Perkins usurious interest on a bill of exchange. It was held in the court below that this vitiated the contract only ax to Ihe amount of usury rerclved. Captain J. W. New man, of Fayetteville, in a very able brief argues that the bank, having vio lated its charter in receiving usury, cannot recover anu part oftic debt, this action of the bank rendering the con tract void.

A splendid orchestra, collected from the old Memphis Brass Band, fur nished capital music. The ball opened with a grand march, which was rapidly followed by quadrille, polka, waltz, cotillion, schotusche and gallopade, in which all present entered with the greatest zest, Arnold and his assistants putting "life and mettle in their heels," to quote from "Tarn O'Shanter." About eleven o'clock the far-famed Ole Bull was introduced to the gay assemblage hy tae President, ( olonei ( feorge w Alexander, and welcomed m limed but appropriate senten T. B. Micou, to which the great violinist responded in some heartfelt remarks, referring, very happily, to the close con nection that existed between the natives of Norway and the"sons of Auld Scotia," bo' h being Scandinavians, and therefore brothers in harmony if not in country. He adverted, iu feeling terms, to the many pleasant days which he had spent iu Scotland, and alluded most feelingly to the poet Burns, whose birth they were that night assembled to celebrate. The remarks of the talented virtuoso were received ith Highland honors. Dancing was then resumed until "the witchin' hour,'' when all partook of an excellent supper, which was spiced with capital speeches by several of the mem bers of the society. "On with the lance" theu airain became the order of the night, and tbe gay disciples ot lerp sichore followed the brilliant strains of the band till the "wee sma' hour ayant the twal," when all separated joyously alter joining in singing "Auld Lang Syne."

A Senate bill to the same effect came up to-day on its third reading, which, after various amendments, was passed. A petition from Mr. Jeup, of David son, asking that apprenticeships as printers he regulated for their protection, was referred. Thirteen different bills to prevent the abusive sale of spirituous liquors were in troduced. Mr. Lindsay, of Davidson, introduced a bill to authorize the people to call a State Convention to amend the consti tution. The preamble sets forth the right of the Legislature under the bill of rights to call a Constitutional Conven tion ; that, in the opinion of the Gen eral Assembly, the present constitution does, iu some important matters, ueed revision and amendment: that.

Mr. iNebhtt's bill provides for funding the entire dent of the State as loiiows: two millions in one hundred dollar bonds, three millions in Ave hun dred dollar bonds, and ten millions in oue thousand dollar bonds, to be signed by the ( iovernor and Secretary of State, to be afterward registered in the Treas urer's office. Both bills were referred to the Committee on Finance, Ways and Means. Mr. Preston introduced a bill to amend the revenue laws of the State. It pro vides that Tax-collectors shall receive as compensation three dollars ou each on hundred dollars up to ten thousand dollar-, and two dollars cn each hundred dollars over that amount ; that County Trust '.-es be allowed three per cent, on every hundred dollars up to leu thousand dollars, and two per cent, on all sums over that amount; that Tax-Assessors of each district in the various counties in the Mate shall be allowed twentv-five .1-11 1- . . w uouurs ior eacn annual assessment, pro vided that the County Court may make such additional allowance in proportion to the amount of labor done, but in no case shall the additional allowance ex ceed twenty-five dollars.

I have not been informed as to the details of either bill. It is also understood that a bill will be Introduced to incorporate all of Shelby county so as to do away with the double government, as recommended by the Appeal.

The usual matinee will take place at two o'clock. Next week John Owens and a company of his own se lection will take possession of the Opera house stage for the presentation of a se ries of standard comedies which will be rendered in a surpassingly fine style. The repertoir comprises some of tbe most unique characters in English dra ma, in the delineation of which Mr. Owens is acknowledged to be without a rival. But there is another beauty about the performances of Owens anil his company, being so well supported one is sometimes at a lofs to tell which is the star, so evenly does the work of the drama move en and so well is the business managed. This is rare and wonderful charm ; it is the secret of all real success in acting. There is no actor that can carry on the whole busi ness of a piece by himself, and when supported by "sticks." instead of bene fitting by the contrast, he suffers by the several lauure. uwens nas provided against this by selecting the best talent he could lay hands on, in order that his plays might be the best played plays in the world, and they are. All who love genuine comedy will go to the Grand Operahoiise next week. The dr., nr. A rattling house and a roaring time at the New Memphis Theater last night. ine uorses seemed to ne in better trim than ever, anil the athletes were in finer muscle. The clowns grinned more nroaaiy aud genially than usual, and the galleries were uproariously de lighted. To say the performances, for there are a series of them, passed off" pleasantly would be too tame to express the enthusiasm of the big audience. The "horse opera," as it has been face tiously named, is a success in Memphis. The attendance during the week was very gratifying to the horses, as well as to the horses' proprietors. The in stinct of those animals is truly marvel ous. They seem to understand the ex act condition of the bouse, and regulate their efforts accordingly. They have j been known to perform before an audi- j ence composed exclusively of dead heads, but they would uot work worth a cent, uo matter how vigorously applaud-; ea. iney can tell the dead-head trom the pay-auditor with infallible precision. Tbe men and women, of course, that be long to tbe company understand these thiugs also, and hence the full paying house always calls forth their best ef forts. This is the reason circus perform ances are always so gratifying and suc cessful in Memphis. There will lie a matinee to-day at two o'clock. They leave immediately after the perfonu- reat skill and startling i-flect. She was encored again and again after each appearance. The Hall will be crowded to-night. It is, perhaps, the last ap pearance of Ole Hull in Memphis. We heard him here nearly twenty years ago. His head, now white, was then without gray hairs; but his form is as erect, his eye as bright and as Alii ot flouting shadows of melody now, as l hen. He seems :is vigorous and as t'uU of enthusiasm as when he was first up lifted in dreams af diviuest pleasure among the stars, to catch, perhaps, the music of those lhat sang togelher when creation stood blushingly in shorts anil pinafores before its builder.
