The contractor's price wits eighteen hundred and fifty dollars, on which one thousand dollars had iieeu paid the re maining amount to he paid in notes when the house was delivered ,ver in a finished state. As no one had lieen aiHiut the building since Saturday eve ning, the lire was without doutt the work of au incendiary. The engines proceeded out iu the direction of the lire, but as there were no cisterns in the ncighlwrhood they had to return with out doing any service, and the cottage was burned to the ground. Nothing could be learned about insurance on the building. The practice or little boys jumping on street-cars when in motion, aud bangipgon to the rear platform, has led to several accidents lately, but prob ably none of a serious character. Yes terday afternoon, while car No. 9 was comiuir down Poplar street, near the Bull Run street Hwitch, a couple of lads, agedalsmt seven and nine respect ively, leaped on the rear platform. The driver, Htephen Jenuiugs. observed them, and coming through the car, drove them off the steps with his whip. One of them, a lad named Young, fell, ami before he could get out of the way he was run over bv one of the wheels of a rockaway coming up the street, and severely injured. C'apDiin Athy, chief of police, who was on the car at the time, ordered the man into custody. The little feliow was carried to the resi dence of his parents, on Poplar street, where medical aid was called in, aud his woumls and bruises dressed. The acci dent is not likely to have a fatal termi nation. A lady fiieml uoods the follow ing for " Serratus Magnus " to read: " Editors Appeal. Your are too hard on poor "Herratus Magnus." Let the poor, harmless rure amuse him self by disparaging women. It is use less to try to convince him that they have any sense "Convince a man against his will." No woman will feel humllated by anything he can say. He eaanot help it if his head is too full of chair to hold anything else. His candor Ls truly admirable, and should lie en couraged, for there is not another mail in Mempnis wno would nave tne cour age to come forward and boldly and un blushlngly acknowledge his ignorance of w hat has been, and is going on in tli" world. It is very natural for us to judge others by ourselves, and the only otf'ense that "Serratus" has lieen guilty of, is his over eagerness to "measure our grain iu his own shallow half-bushel." a man always judges women by those with whom he associates. m. j." A communication was received a few days since by Chief Athy from the head of the detective force in Philadel phia, that a house at No. 712 Market street, in that city, had been entered by burglars, who had, however, been fright ened awav, leaving behind them a trunk filled with burglars' tools. On one end of the trunk were the letters. "V. H. L.," and on the other "V. H. L;tnd.sfeldt, Memphis." The Philadel phia officei wished Chief Athy to make inquiries, and inform him of any par ticulars he could gather relative to the ownership of the trunk. The chief went to work and soon got on the trail. He learued that W. H.Landsfeldt was a respectable merchant in the city, who hud sold the trunk iu question to a no torious character named C. H.

He will be here on the eighteenth of April. A large number of our citizens visit ed the camp of the seventh cavalry yes terday, although the day was gloomy aud stonily, with occasional showers. They walked about the "tented field," and examined everything in the camp with the greatest interest. A couple of colored girls, named re spectively Martha Jones aud Bettie Jones, were captured by the police yes terday for fast driving on Second street. They put up a gold watch and seven teen dollars iu money for their appear ance before the recorder this morning. A man named Frank Drew was arrested yesterday by the police on the charge of'stealing a skill from a lauding short distance tip the river. When he was taken into custody he had the skill' in his possession. He was locked up, and will appear before the recorder Uiis momiug for examination. The regular monthly meeting of the members of the chamber of com merce will lie held at three o'clock this evening, when it is expected that the committees on railroads and the com mittee on the propriety of establishing a cotton department in connection with I'll . hamper are expected to report. It is to be hoped that the attendance will lie large. Paducah on Saturday voted two hundred thousand dollars to the Padu cah and Northeastern railroad. That will, of course, insure its completion to Cypress Junctiou, Tennessee where it intersects with the St. Louis and South eastern, aud Springfield and Southeast ern railroads and when completed will be the shortest route from this city to Chicago. iiie people of St. Bridget tiarish have shown theright kind of spirit by the erection of a good residence for their jiastor, Father Walsh. There is some indebtedness hangiutr over the buildiug, vmjeh the ladies of the congregation have determined to pay off, to accom plish which they will hold a grand fair and "festival at Cochran hall, com mencing on Faster-Tuesday evening. The complimentary lienefit to Mr. T. W. Davev coines otf this evening at theOiaud Oiierahouse. The programme is a fine one. Mr. Ben. I)eBar will ai- iseur in his very amusing personation of "TiMMlles," in which he is without a rival. The afterpiece will lie the thrilling dra ma of CantUJa't Hwtbnnd, with Miss Laura Alexander, the favorite leading lady, in the principal ro. The house is certain to be well filled. A couple of small explosions of gas took place in the cellar of a building on tne corner ol Jr rout and Washington street. The gas had len llowing into the cellar all day, w hich led to the ex-plo-iou, but as the pipes of the two gas companies run iiarallel down Washing ton street, tne leak could not be discov ered. Both companies ojiened the ground and tapped their piies, putting in perpendicular funnells, which were lighted so as to diminish the flow of gas. They illuminated the corner of Main and Washington street brilliantly last night. One of the best known news-dealers in the city is tiie enterprising aud indefatigable Joe Ixn-ke whse establish ment is situated at No. 205, Main street. Mr. Ijocke is ever up to the times and he ever has on his spacious counters the latest publications, iucluding Harper, '" ".', Seribner, Frank L'jUie's lUut (rated, Godey't Lady't BooJt, the Ada-' lie and a host of other magaziues for April. He has also constantly on hand all Ihe pictorials for the week, and the iork, Cincinnati, Chicago, aud Kditors Appeal A member of your fraternity is supposed to have on hand a full set of books of reference, and from constant use to be familiar with their contents; he is also supposed to be thoroughly posted on current top ics, to think quickly, and to set down in a rapid way his ideas, in a style ch ar and terse. Writing for the press is also his occupation. In my own case the reverse of all this Ls true. My pri vate busiuess keeps me on foot all day; at night I am tired and nervous, and to me scribbling is a labor, but not a "la bor of love." In fact, I have not a tenth of the time to devote to this sub ject which would be required to pen such an article ts I could desire in just ice to the readers thereof. Again, to one not accustomed to writiug for the press, his composition will, when print ed, read differently from what it up iveared to convey when in mauuscript. I am not so egotistic as to suppose that the public care to peruse daily, for weeks, several columns of anything which I can, under the circumstances, give them on this or any other subject. Hence I shall try to touch on only such points as 1 may think worthy of note, and will endeavor to condense that, stu diously avoiding the giving of personal offense to any one. I knew that, as a class, women have no idea of the impersonality of literary criticism, but I am astonished that you should fall into so grave a blunder. I have, from the first, tried to keep self and my individually out of sight, but you ami others will keep hauling it up and crediting mewith assertions I never made and opiuioiis I never held. When I write that I believe the genera! pub lic thiuk thus aud so about a cer tain subject, it is hardly fair to take it for granted that my individual ideas are the same. I have no scribbling reputation to lose, and I don't wish to have any. A love of jus tice is the spring of my actions in this affair. Were it otherwise I would sign my name. A violent, thoroughly gra tuitous and most unjust attack was made on the school board, aud in which one of my friends was outrageously assailed, and another gentleman held up to piti less ridicule. Knowiug that public opin ion should be set aright in this affair, deeming it a delicate matter in the gen tlemen to defend themselves, seeing from the tenor of the article that the thief aud a burglar by profession, and i writer thereof had laid herself open to I l . .1 : i .

I wrote the article without having consulted auy one about it. It is not worth while to rehearse what I said iu it, but it must have had a good effect even ou the lady herself, for she has either not attempted to answer, or else she has come at me iu a style so com pletely softened down, and under a nomiiie de plume, too, as to escape Iden tification. I certainly have good reason to think she is ashamed of it and regrets it. Let us hope she does.

Bernard is wanted for a burglary in South Memphis, and the theft of a watch at Water Valley, Mississippi, last summer, so that he is likely to make a return trip back to this section of the country. A young girl of about sixteen yeais of age, petite in figure, prej-ossessing in appearance and neatly dressed, arrived in the city by train on'the Memphis and Charleston railroad last evening. She was accompanied oy a companion, a ierson of middle age, who took her to a N e e improved or i lor improved or i in Win. A- Collier, 2' ' 3i Louisville dailies, at publication prices, (iive him a call. The Kipley Mu, of last week, says: "All the old croakers who were, six o.ouths ago, predicting that the Pa ducah and Memphis railroad would not be completed to Kipley within three years, are dead or have otherwise disap peared from view. It is now almost re duced to a certainty that the trains will lie running to this point by the first of November. President Norton will not fail to have the work pushed througn from Memphis to Covington by the stip ulated time, the first of July. The road bed from Covington to Hatch ie river. nun; this way, is already graded and ready for the ties aud iron, Ihe heavy work at this point is being prosecuted ignrouaiy, ana tne prospect, altogether, is very encouraging." A lire i h vein red alaml half-iiast nine u ciock la.-.t night, iu an unfinished during tne uignt. lesteruay morning the girl was seen walkiug about main street in a listless manner, by a police man, seeming to be at a loss where to go, aud appearing as if a total stranger in the city. She carried a satchel in her hand, and theoftieer, after watching her movements for a time, went up to her and spoke to her. After putting several questions to her of a pointed na ture, she acknowledged that she had ran away from her home iu Middle Tennessee, where her father was a farm er, and had come to Memphis to see city life. She half hinted that it was Her intention to enter a house of ill-fame. On hearing this extraordinary and painful storv, the officer took her at once to Chief Athy's office, when she was again in terrogated and told the same heart rending tale. The chief told her, when she mentioned what she intended should be her future career, that, rather than euter ou such a downward course, it would be better for her to plunge at mice beneath the dark waves of the Mississippi. Communication was had iu the afternoon with the benevolent lady-managers of the Church Home, who at once agreed to receive her into that institution till her parents can bo communicated with ami take her to her home. A Cold .-seems a Small Affair. Most people neglect it. Who minds it? Yet a cold may turn to consumption, and then follows almost certain death. Take a cold in time, then; that is, take Dr. Jayne's Expectorant, the well known standard remedy for coughs, colds, consumption, asthma, bronchit is, and all pulmonary complaints, and your cold will disappear, as well as all apprehensions of clanger.

Mr. Ben DeBar, the veteran actor and manager, arrived in the city last evening, and Is at the Peabody hotel. Char. Gooch, Cincinnati; D. M. Blumeuthal, B. 1). Hodges. Arkansas; E. F.

Gibson, a very popular railroad man, and general traveling agent for the Pan-Handle and Pennsyl vania Ceutral route, passed thromrb the city yesterday, en route to New Orleans. Mr Gibson makes his headquarters in Cincinnati, but no gentleman is better or more favorably known throughout the entire south for his courtesy and gentlemanly qualities. The "Cut-Off" Saloon is becoming a popular resort, as the proprietor, George W. Miller, is a very popular gentleman. It is in the rear of the German National Bank, and has enirauces both ou Main and Madison streets. The Mock of all kinds of liquors will '' fc.in..i wji.frb. Since then I have made some little inquiry into the actions of the board, aud the private motives govemiug the conduct of two of its members. From it I find, as I suspected, that if thewhole trut't i - n known, that these parties were trying to befriend the lady teaAers, their motives have been misrepresented as outrageously as has been their con duct. I regret that I am not permitted as yet to tell why. I also find, what is to me quite a satisfactory proof, that the quicker the female teachers get rid of the patronage of several of their sex, the better for u;- in. I am informed that one or more of these ladies came uninvited to the meeting of the board, and behaved iu such a noisy manner, talking and laughing whilst certain officers were speaking, forbear auce ceased to be a virtue, and one of the papers put ou record next morning that the president was compelled to call them to older two or three different times. Does this not lay them open to the suspicion of attempting to browbeat Ihe board into compliance with their personal notions, and then claim the credit for themselves? Cau, If such be true, these sort of advocates do other, if anything, than harm to the cause of the female teachers? 1 am also told that Mr. C.'s remark about babies, was, if taken in its due connection, not at ail olfensive, and that he was tame compared with another officer who was not singled out for ridi cule, it is very easy to single out a sentence, and do a speaker great in justice. I am informed that with the exception of partial paralysis in one foot, he is the embodiment of a hale, hearty, good-looking, sensible, polite, highly educated and moral middle-aged English gentleman; that he has never been seeu either drunk or in lewd com pauy; and that ou this score he especial ly challenges a comparison with the in dividual who published a scurrilous card above the signature of "Decency;" that Mr. C. is a widower, and that his tie tractor is its too bad to tell. Mr. C. is represented to me as quite a gallant friend of what are termed modest ladies. In regard to that vote of thanks, why did they wish it read aloud before the board, and put ou its minutes? Why send it to tlie chairman to get him to read it? Why did lie refuse? Don't this look like, under the influence of , bad advice, a premeditated insult t&l him, and all others save Mr. Pierce? If a mere desire to thank him, why not send it privately to him ami have done with it. Is not Mr. P. opeu to the sus picion of desiring a little cheap notorie ty for gallautry? Notwithstanding it was not your "put in," you made an energetic attack on my article, and have from the first at tempted to lorestaii public opinion by gratuitous sitting iu judgment, and ex pressing it in sensational headings, to my own and other's pieces. Do you call this fair play ? Because 1 quoted what is amongst themselves a standing joke of the editorial fraternity, you call me "ungracious for the courtesy shown me," and theu turn about and declare me "a poor devil," "knowing no more than a country jake." Consistency is a jewel. However, lam not offended, aud I hope never to descend so low as to wautouly Insult any lady or gentleman myself. in your second editorial you very properly give me the credit of not justi fying the barbarous treatment to wo men, which you allege is still allowed bylaw in England. If I am not mis taken, such crimes are punished in that country as they are here. I don't be lieve that any such a nation as are the English would tolerate it, and I am sure no English gentleman would stand by and see a womau beaten even by her husband. If I mistake not, Miss Emily Faithful is au intellectual lady of great refinement, whose mission is not to make men grant already granted privil eges to the female sex, but to Induce them to take advantage of them; not to sit idle when men are ready to pay for their labor; uot to be content with the merest primary education when men have endowed hundreds of high schools for them, and at which they may obtain a collegiate educatiau free of expense; not to coufiue themselves to three or four employments, but to take to all sorts of light in-door work ; to be what they can and do whatever good they can compass; and lastly but best, that it is information and toil, skill cour ageous labor with head and hands, through which they must work out their salvation. The trouble lies in getting the women to cheerfully accept their destiny, and go to work. There is too much of Ihe " forty acres and a mule" in their ideas of life. The most sensible thing i have heard of in connection with this view of the matter, consists of the fact that a Bos tonian has given a million dollars to found an institution in which women, if they will attend, are to be taught how to make a living for themselves. So far as I know, Miss F., like myself, be lieves not in men's rights, nor women's, but in broad human rights that every adult of the human race has a destiny to fulfill, duties to perform must, without unnatural distinction, labor in the chan nels for which each particular individ ual is best capacitated, for self, contem porary, and succeeding generations; that idleness in the sister is as reprehen sible as loafing in the brother; that po litical franchise will bring only iuereased cares and duties to all of which I say ameu. She don't iielieve in crowing hens, nor do I. She believes that labor will still farther ennoble even the most refined, so do I. I never heard that she claimed for her sex a mental strength equal to that of the other, nor that she ever expected women to be paid for their labor a higher price than its mar ket value, nor that any one else should impertinently judge for and declare the price to be paid by the individual em ployer. But she knows that, if we could ever once get the women to go to work, they, not being fitted for heavy labor, would crowd men out of some of the lighter ones, by underbidding the wages he could procure otherwise. So far as my observation goes, women do make better teachers than men for young children; but when you say that the rule holds nearly as good in collegi ate studies, you are certainly deserted by public opinion, the world over. I, myself, have no doubt that for every woman you may find fitted for a profes sorship, a thousand men better quail tied may be pointed out. it will require generations of culture to en able women to grasp the abstruse problems in law, medicine and politics. Male teachers for youths and to till pro- lessorslnps are a necessity, and as men do just here a higher grade of work than women can do, their work is worth more money, will command more money, anil to procure them this extra sum must be paid. Hence it is nonsense to talk of female teachers, as a eiass ever getting tlie same salary. Take our own case iu hand; the city is well nigh bankrupt. To run tlie city schools at all, the greatest economy must be prac tised; the directors must get the cheap est, efficient teachers they cau. Some of these must be men. If a first-rate male teacher commands a better salary the world over; hence the hoard must either pay therie men a larger salary than women are glad to work for, or else materially increase the already very liberal pay for which they agreed for, and which they appear to have been quite satisfied until certain out siders took it up for some people think to get tlie credit of successful, aud to obtain notoriety any how. In this point I express no personal opinion, but leave all to form their own. It may be news to some to learn that out of sixty seven teachers employed, all but nine are women, and that with one excep tion, one of these ladies received three hundred dollars more than any male teacher, and that nearly all ef them get as much as eight hundred dollars a year. The pay role for salaries alone loots up the enormous sum of fifty thousand dof lars. Pretty good for young ladies who w ould otherwise be at home doing noth ing. So desirable is the position, I am told that there are twenty applicants for each vacancy, aud that an enormous pressure is brought to bear iu the at tempt to secure one. It is supposed that three-fourths of these teachers would gladly accept one-half of their present pay rather than lose their places. I trust, however, the financial state of the school fund will not compel a reduction, as is feared, because I think every dollar paid to each conscientious teacher is fully earned. The fact of the matter is, iemale teachers are doing very well, anil if let alone by sensational newspaper articles and gratuitous patronage on the psrt of certain outsiders, they would be happy aud contented, as such a body of educated and renneu ladies deserve to oe. I trust that their good sense may speed ily come to their rescue, and that iu fu ture they and the board of education may be permitted to atteud to their own affairs in peace. These ladies should bear in miud the advice of the immortal Washington in regard to "en tangling alliances;" and if there be a crowing hen in their own body, that she ..be not allowed to place them in a false position before the public. I can per sonally vouch for one of the best known of these teachers, being in every way a lady whom any gentleman might fed proud of her esteem. I am sure she cannot approve of the course of certain would-be patrous. It is so rare that any woman, save the merest social pretender, pays much attention to scientific subjects, that when one does do so she is hailed as a prodigy, and receives at the hands of educated men the greatest courtesy and encouragement. Hence they always get an undue share of fame. You have failed to prove that any of them have ever done iu this way what would have given a man a fifth-rate reputation. Let us take a practical view of the Herschell case. A handsome, agreeable, intelligent, painstaking, in dustrious and wealthy lady, sitting daily at the table of her distinguished kinsman, surrounded by the most noted astronomers of the state, is induced to take an interest, for past time, if nothing else, in a science which she hears talked of every day iu her life. She is em ployed to do the mechanical watching of the instruments, and sits at the tele scope for a lifetime. Is it not an utter impossibility that she should not dis cover some minor stars and tag-ends of comets? She is encouraged to communicate several papers on the subject, to be gathered into a pamphlet. Now is it much less than an impossibility that all these things were talked over by herself and friends, and the whole reviewed by the other member of the family before pub lication? But after all, what does all this amount to? I can pick out a dozen young women in Tennessee who could do as much. Mrs. Somerville's advan tages were somewhat similar. She is still living, and in Rome. She compiled from current literature an excellent and very readable treatise on physical geog raphy. On this rests her fame, and had it been the work of a man it is not probable it would have reached a third edition. As it is it has almost passed out of circulation. I have not seen a copy for sale within fifteen years, and I doubt if one such could be found in town. This was highly creditable, but to call such a thing great is but a miss use of words. Humboldt's Cosmos is a great work, wonderfully profound aud original; the other a pleasing and in structive book. I submit that masterpiece of literature is a phase due only to such liooksas the Cosmos, Gibbon's Decline and Fai f the lioman Empire, Homer's Iliad, Byron's Childe Harold, and sim ilar productions. You have not eveu attempted to tell us what Mendelssohn's sister did. I am sure I don't know. That so few women have turned their attention to science proves only that it is distasteful to them aud uusuited for them. It is no excuse for the paucity of their work. I submit that so far from auy restrictions being put ou them for the last two ceuturies, the converse is true. Men have bailed with greatest delight any mental effort ou tlie part of women. One of my earliest recollections when a child was the ar ray of gentlemen who came from far and near to do honor to Fanny Wright whenever she came to my father's house. If you have ever traveled on a boat with Mad. Le Vert you have seen gentlemen almost ready to fight for the honor of leading the old lady to the table. Edgar Allen Poe, the most mer ciless critic known in the annals of magazines, was never known to fail to praise every attempt of women. No, no, my dear sir, you are on the wrong track. You deuy that females pay more attention to music than males do. Why, bless me! did you ever see a dozen boys at the piano? Who is it thrumming away at the instru ment in nearly every house you pass? "I pause for "a reply." "Ain't you sorry you didn't say nothing?" You call the works of Bronte, Sand, Eliot and "Ouida" "pictures from real life." With some allowance, this may be said of Bronte'sJane Eyre, and some what intimated of Eliot, but if you can point out anything short of ghost stories that have more of unreal life and less of the real thau the other two, I should be glad to learn of the process of reasoning. Just look at Tricotrin, will yon? As for Uncle Tbm's Cnbin, itrSp8 currently reported to have been wholly re written by Henry Ward Beecher, one of the most talented men in the country. It was gotten up for po litical effect, came in the very nick of time, seized hold of as a political tool, and worked to the last state of ex haustion. The same may be said of tin doggerel called " John Brown's Body," etc. Had it beeu published a decade, sooner ' latar. it would never have reached a second edition. Really the book, on its own merits as a literary production, is rather a poor thing; far inferior to Foul Play. You must be Jok ing when you say it "revolutionized a continent" Notwithstanding the im mense notoriety it gave the authoress, all of her later works have fallen still born ; which goes to prove her quite a commonplace writer, certainly far infe rior to Miss Evans. I regard Miss Martinean as having been the most intellectual woman of her day, hut when you say that no man "was her superior as an editor, philoso pher and philanthropist," you seem to be putting it on strong. Will you ad mit success as a test of merit? Ii so, look at Greely and his Tribune; money making, see Bennett and his three mill ions; good done, rememlier Peabody. If you insist on originality of idea, please remember she wasouly the trans lator, not author of Compte's Positive PhVosojjhy. We all know of the hifa Iutin of Kant, the figures of Compte, the induction and evolution of Hnxley, but really I don't recollect of any system originating with M i.-s M. It is true that the housekeeping and domestic column, thanks to the lamented llreeley who started it, is, in the weekly edition of some of the metropolitan papers, under the care of ladie . This is a work for which a well-informed and talented wo man is peculiarly fitted ; but I never heard that any of them ever edited any other or more responsible part of such journals. The work in this column in the Agriculturist, the Tribune, and in the Rural Sun of Nashville, is particu larly well done. This is talent, but not au exhibition of the massive brain pow er shown iu tlie conduct of chief-editor. 1 It is a fife beside the base drum. Type-setting on book-publisher's day light work is quite adapted to women. Printers are a gallant and intelligent set of men. Every inducement has been held out to women to help fill up their ranks, but little success has attended the move, for, as I said before, but few womeu want to work, and the vast ma jority consider a trade to lie beneath their diguity. You claim that they get the same pay. How could it Le other wise, when this sort of work is paid for by the piece, must Le proved before paid for, and where there can lie no mistake in either, quantity or quality. But if printers were paid by the day men's work would average, under any com mercial rule, uot less than thirty to fifty per cent premium. You confound feudality with chival ry. The one was, pexliang, a uecestary species of personal despotism, which did some good by curbing the license of kings. About as fast as the people were tilted for something letter, it decayed. Give the devil his due, and let us re memlier tlie magna charla. Chivalry was another necessity; a stilted system of ceremony and pageantry. As the world became more practical it read Don Quixote, aud laughed Its absurdi ities out of existence. Let us hope its virtues, such as manly courage, unselfish defeuse of the oppressed, high-toned sense of honor and courtesy to women, may never die out. It did more to re fine men than all that preceded it for five centuries. Women, at least, should remember it with reverence and grati tude. I fail to perceive any connection with the obligatory labor of German peasaut wonien aud the voluntary idleness of our young females. If any matron in the south can at this time carry on housekeeping without almost constant attention to it, I don't see how its to be done. The lioarxliug-houses are full and more wish they were in them. I have noticed among this class that most of them have a knack of doing the family sewing with extraordinary celerity, or else they must have it dune by some oue else, in order that time may be spared for gossips and shopping. When I was being educated in one great eastern city, and during my five years residence in another, I had ample scope for ob serving the retail stores. In eleven twelfths there were no girls at all ; in the remaiuder an average of one and, remarkable as it may seem, these young ladies were, in almost every Instance, quite handsome and tidy, and stationed near the front door to sell walking canes, umbrellas, perfumery, gloves, aud such things. I think I once owned six canes, four umbrellas, two cigar-cases, and as for perfumery and other trah I had no use for, I could hardly givet away as fast as I bought it. ho designs all the patterns for prints, dress-goods, curtains, laces, shawls, carpets, and china, glass and porcelain ware? Nobody else thau men. Who weaves, colors aud makes all these things other than a little hand-made lace? Not women, but men. 1 am told that there Ls not in all France a lace mac'uiue run by a woman, and that not a cup from female hands ever left Seves. I am also informed that employment of shop-girls in Paris is about ou a par, only more common, with the custom in New York; that eveu in the cafes they have only one woman, very handsome, sitting near the door to take the money; that nearly all the work in both is done by males; that eveu iu dress-making no woman who can nay Worth's prices will allow a female to cut a fine dress for her; that the highest dames in the city will strip to the corset, have their measures taken, pay him three prices and go off chuckling at their luck in getting ahead of some others who have been hooked for a month. This is very Freuchy, but from the noise it has created for years, there must be foundation for it. The superintendent of the then largest tailor ing establishment iu Nework, told me that no woman could make a nice cloth coat, and, that to their great loss, they were compelled to let out this sort of work exclusively to men, at their much higher wages. I again protest against classing an ability to sing well amongst the great mental triumphs. True, the best natu ral voice requires practice, but this par takes more oi a mecnamcai arrange ment implanted iu the larynx of the person, all the practice in a lifetime cannot make an artiste. Singing is to the singing apparatus what the gymna sium Is to the general muscular system. You say that 1 am a rough customer and that you have got enough of me, and will call in aud set on me the fe male sex. Permit me to congratulate you on your judicious return to pru dence. If other people rush headlong to a figurative elm wool, it is not my funeral. Goodbye! Very respectfully, your obedient servant, sebratcs maoncs.

Wash Johnson, tbe Mayer of John Heorr,ln DeMha tonal;, Arkansas, la Jail. A couple of negroes named Joe Flinn and Wash Johnson were arrested at a very late hour by Officer Piltz and lodged in the Causey street station house, the former being charged with suspicion of murder, and the hitter with that high crime itself. Yesterday they were brought up to the Adams street po lice station for safe keeping. Tbe mur der took place on the plantation of Mr. Thomas H. Allen, Desha county, Ar kansas, iu December of last year, about two weeks before Christmas, the victim being a colored man named John Henry. It appears that on the night the murder was com mitted there was a dance on tbe plantation at which whisky flowed freely. While the dancing was going on a row sprung up between Henry and a colored man named Oliver. Johnson interfered to preserve the peace, as he says, and succeeded in quieting the parties down. A short time afterward, however, Henry is said to have come up hehiud Johnson and cut him in the back of the head with a knife, and then drew a pistol on him. A negro of the name of Andy Fuller, handed him a revolver with which to defend himself. The parties went to ward the door, when Johnson asked Henry what made him draw tbe pistol on him. Henry, it is alleged, put his hand behind his back, as if with the intention of again drawing his pistol, wbeii Johnson fired, and the bullet eu tered Henry's breast, who died a short time afterward. Johnson immediately ran off to the woods, and managed to come up on a boat from Napoleon with out being detected. He has been work ing here ever since, until arrested by Officer Piltz, as above mentioned. Re corder Winters will investigate the case this morning. IRISH LINENS.

Railroad companies use them at nearly every wood and water station, for pumping water and sawing wood; there is a large number used ou planta tions to gin cotton and grind com; nearly every printing-office in the south has one in use to supply power for their printing-presses; anil they are also used for various other purposes that I could mention. The great demand for this class of engines fully satisfies me that a manufactory of this'kiu-l would tie a safe and profitable investment, and would pay good dividends to the stockholders, if the workshop is conducted on the same principle as northern shops. These en gines could be built as cheaply in Mem phis as they could be delivered here, in cluding the freight, and a handsome profit realized. We have competent mechanics to manage these works, and skillful mechanics to do the work in all the different departments, aud succe-'s-fully compete with builders that now supply this market with their "shoddy" work. When this is done, we will fiud ready sale for home industry. If we expect to build up our workshops, we must sell our wares as cheap as our en terprising neighbor is willing to deliver the same article at our doors; for it is the principle of men to buy In the cheapest, and sell in the deareet market. I suggest tlie following plans to start these works: Let a joint stocE com pany be organized with a capital of twenty five thousand dollars, with the privilege of increasing the same to seventy-five thousand dollars shares oue hundred dollars, each. As soon as tlie company is incorporated, colleet ten per cent, of the stock each month uutil all the stock is paid in. Let steam-boilers of all kinds be made at these works. J-t no officer of the company receive a salary unless his services are actually necessary iu conducting tbe business of the com pany. Let the superintendent, and foremen of the different depart ments, be some of our most energetic Memphis mechanics. The mechanics and workingmeu are slow to taking stock iu building asbociations; but, an association of this kind I believe oue half of the stock would be taken by this class of men, for it is business that many of them understand. Here is a chance for the moneyed men to assist the me chanic and workingmeu, at the same time build up a safe and profitable busi net in our city. If we expect to pros per we must build up our workshops, for in this direction is true prosperity, and by the multiplication of manufactories. we establish our city on a turn founda tion of wealth and prosperity.
