In the sen ate to-day, Mr. Askew offered a resolu tion that a sufficient number of new counties bad been created, and that the senate would consider no more bills for that purpose. Referred. A bill was in troduced by Senator Cait to prevent fu ture members of the general assembly from holding office during their legisla tive teruia. Referred. A substitute for house till No. T5, for the appointment of a state geologist, was passed. Senate bill 81, to authorize the funding of the floating debt of Pine Bluff and Fort Hmith, was made the special order for noon. The house bill for the relief of the engineers employed by the commissioner of public wotks as passed by a vote of l-tol4. Senate bill No. 154, to repeal the registration act, passed. The bill authorising cities and town to subscribe for railroad tr-k was made the special order for ball-past eleven. The house passed an act to abolish the office of probate judge and associate iiistiee. A bill to repeal an act to em ploy a public printer went to the print ing committee. The btil to amend an act investing the lands in the Chain - penclla rwamp district as stock in the Mississippi, Ouachita and Red river railroad was defeated. A bill making a further appropriation of one hundred thousand dollars to pay the expenses of members and offices of tbe general as sembly, was introduced by Copeland, colored; it was the snlject of much dis m, aud was finally referred to the ways and means commit tee. Tbe bouse concurred in the senate a-nendnieut to Furbueh's bill to create the cotintv of Lee. This is a victory for Furbush. aides the two lookout-meu and the quar termaster there were about fifteen men on watch when the ship struck ; must have been at work washing decks, etc. I be lieve the statement if Quartermaster Atlantic Disaster Evidence I Thomas that he cautioned the second officer to be raise; no omcer wouta allow such a breach of discipline ; I made al lowance for current but not enough ; I supiKJsed that the heavy westerly winds that prevailed during winter would have neutralized the westerly set; I expected at day-break to have had land east of Halifax in sight.

The Murder of General Canny by the Modoea-Indian Troubles Generally. Fires. Murders, Accidents and Miscellaneous Items from all Quarters. HISMSM PPL Special to tbe Appeal. Jackson, April 15. The senate post poned discussion on tbe bill establishing the rates of taxation for 1873. The new penitentiary bill goes to a select com mittee of three. A bill was passed rela tive to the assessment In Choctaw county-, and amending tbe charter of the citv or Corinth. The joint session to day was -pen' in the election of a com missioner of immigration. Griggs (colored) was nominated in can cos, and bid fair to go ahead, until Gibbs, of Co lumbus, appeared on the field. Now when Gibbs gets into the field, parties must keep their weather eye open, aud it may be on that account that the mem 1 ers got ' ' skeered " and bolted the caucus. A caucus will be held to-night, and party lash vigorously applied. In regar.l to the Morris-Barksdale difficulty, I wish to make a statement which will remove any misconstruction that might be formed in the minds of the public. My dispatch stated that Morris came down about Boon, accom panied by Colonel Thompson, when Barksdale advanced to the middle of the street and met Thouion, a conversa tion ensued, etc. The facts of the case are as follows: Morris stepped from his carriage, aud Thompson went diagonal ly across to the corner where he had left l'iarksdale about a half an hour previous, and there ascertained that Barksdale was in the street, where he sought him, coming up in his rear, aud held tbe con versation mentioned. Thompson then approached Morris and reported tbe re sult of the interview with Barksdale and told him to look out, and returned near the capitol gate, and about that time both parties were put under arrest. From a very brief acquaintance with Colonel Thompson your correspondent i elieves him a gentleman, and to Major Barksdale he applies the same. J nsllv Sentenced Boston, April 15.

POTTERS- A Correspondent Objects to tbe Pres ent Location of these Brcefl- DflBOTb Isolated I'lac- More Desirable SSUtgeslloEs for the County Court. Editors Appeal Ou Friday last the county court approved the report of a committee favoring the purchase of around (about forty acreei at the cross- iusc of the Memphis and Charleston and ii'o..eon Boost roads, three miles east of the c.'ty, for use as a potter's field, and upon "which to erect a smallpox pest house. On Saturday a remonstrance was presented by parties in the vicinity, and to-day was fixed for the further con sideration of the matter. There is no iui-tion but that both, a potter's field aud a pestbotf should be properly lo cated and estab'tsbed and for obvious reasons, Dot upon Wolf river but that a place convenient of access, as retired as possible, and which cOmUins the largest number of acres for the .smallest amount of money, should be selected. And while, as a matter of humanity and public policy, such a place must be se lected, care" should be taken that the least possible injury to tbe public or to individuals, should bedone thereby. Ii is well known that the country contig uous to Wolf river, alove the city, and to Nonconnah, below it, is subject to miasmatic influence, causing sickness, and preventing its being thickly set tled ; but the elevated country between the two is noted for its bei.ithfulneBS, its convenience, its beauty, aud general adaptability for suburban houses, whether for the capitalist seeking retire ment with his family, or the day-laborer rearing his family in hesitb and vigor, and is of as vital Importance to Memphis as any block or square within its corporate limits that section is dow, and is destined to become, more thickly settled than any other suburb of the iiy. The fair grounds and race course are upon it; Central Park has been lo cated there for a future generation; one oi l ''e finest aud best understood male high schools in Shelby county has been, by years of jerseverance and industry, established there, an excellent female school is also In progress. Pel hap- no church in ail tbe region is growing more steadily and haj greater evidence of permanence than that built up by the perseverance of Kev. Mr. Hark. By creating this pest house and potter's field iu this vicinity we rreatly fear that all this will be eclipsed, possibly not so much from tbe actual, positive 'ill effects as from the blighting, chilling influence of a uame- n ad. that, tike Banuuo's ghost, wiil ml down At any bidding. Nor is it wiiboutgrcund for actual dread. Every case of malignant smaHpox, in being carried along the public road to tbe pest house, endangers the life of every lamily on the line, and of every person that may be met in tbe street, as well as of every person living near the hospital. If a retired rout or locality can be had, or if a plau be procured by water, much of the ill effects and danger may be avoided. We are informed that double tbe M.iani ;'y t lod, in a retired section, coualiy Jnssible, perhaps more so, has been ufSaffci ft,r the same amouut of inouev. We do not know that this is true, nor do we know the name of the partv proposing to sell, but we are of opinion that Ui oourt to-day cannot do better than to rescind the action making the location at the place Stated, and In ju!re further before permanent action Is taken. t was found dead in bis office with a pistol-shot wound iu bis head.

The mills Nos. 1 and 2 of the Delight manu facturing company, at Chicopee, were destroyed by fire last night. The mills were devoted to the manufacture of cotton-sheetings and cotton-flannel, and contained forty-five hundred bales of cotton, which were destroyed, as were also one stock-house and three lumber- sheds. The total loss will not fall short of three-quarters of a million dollars. winch is tuliy covered by insurance in Boston agencies. Eight hundred people were thrown out of emplovmeut. The fire was occasioned by the accidental overturning of a lamp. Boston, April 15. The insurance on tbe Chicopee mills, burned last night, was six hundred and thirteen thousand dollars,;tue full amount required by law, and the limit prescribed by insurance rules. Indians. Washington, April 15. SujH-rin-teudent Hoag has informed the Indian bureau that he has ordered a thorough investigation into the murder of sur veyors by the Indians. In his commu nication he incloses a letter from tbe special agent, John F. Williams, who says it appear? as if the said outrage was coin m'u ted by the Cheyenues. It was probably done by some of the young men in tbe absence of their chiefs, and while intoxicated. This view is strengthened by the bodies being buried in the sand, which is unusual among the Indians. They scalp, aud leave the bodies exposed. The investigation will be pursued and specially with Indians on their arrival at the agency to which they are moving, and we expect no fur ther trouble, the chiefs and head men of the Kiowas, Camanches, and Apache Indians having petitioned for the release of Santa ArU and Big Tree, and having restored all stolen property, bv guaran tees for future good conduct, their peti tion is granted. Santa Art a and Big Tree are now held only until provision can be made for their safe escort to their own country. Atlantic nisaster. Halifax, April 14. The Atlantic in vestigation was resumed this afternoon. Benjamin Falkes testified that the keeper of Duvet's Island light-bouse, on the night of tbe disaster, had his light in perfect order at eleven o clock m the afternoon; weather thick and Lazy eouid see Cbebueta head, but not Sam- bro light at three o'clock in the morn ing; weather clear, and both Sambro and Cbet.ueta bead-lights visible; wit ness then testiile.i regardim? tbe cur rents off the coast. Captain Wood, harbor-master of Halifax, was then called us a witness, but was absent. Captain William- made a supplementary state ment, in -a Inch he said that the Atlan tic and other White Star steamers, were intended to consume fifty five to sixty tons of coal per day ; when coal was as bad as in the case of the Atlantic, it takes seventy tons to maintain the same rate of speed; the company has contracted for the best coal iu the market, and cannot be held resp nsible for the quality- of coal supplied by the fault of the owners; the English jiortion of tbe coal supplied to the Atlantic appeared to have laid at 1'it-mouth for some time, so that its heating properties were very much im paired ; had the coal been the quality exiected by the White Star line, she would have had fourteen and a half days' full consumption; tio ship of the White Star line having made a passage longer than thirteen and a half days from Liverpool to New York; there was an ample sup ply of provisions on board, the govern ment inspector at Liverpool having cer tified to thirty-three days' supply when we left Liverpool; what we were greatly short of was salt fish and potatoes for tbe itoman Catholic passengers, the supply having been washed overboard in a gale; in regard to the efficiency of the crew, they were as good as usual, though a little rougher; we consider ourselves lucky if we get ten good sea meu among forty taken on board, aud so on all the lines; since the aliolitiou of apprenticing, seamen have deteriorated; the best run of the Atlantic this voyage was three hundred miles in twenty-four hours and thirty miuutes. The second officer was not iu tbe chart-room when she struck. When I felt the ship strike the quartermaster was at the wheel, and when I passed out I met the second offi cer at the forepart of the wheelhouse. He was coming from the bridge. I said to him " Mr. Motcalf, you have been in acolllasion, why didn't you call me?" He said : "We are ou the rocks. We in tended to get provisions at Halifax, but did not rem btrs for that purpose."

The steam boat Southwestern, which arrived at about half-past one o'clock this evening, brings stirring and important news from Grant parish. The whites have retaken Colfax, and there is not a negro to be found for miles around. From passen gers on the Southwestern we glean the following: The negroes had strongly entrenched themselves iu tbe court bouse, and built entrenchments three aud four feet hieh. There were, it is said, about four hundred men, armed and equipped thoroughly. On Sunday, at about twelve o'clock, about one hun dred and fifty white men, who had gathered from the surrounding parishes, made au attack on the breastworks, and a brisk fight was kept up until some time near three o'clock when the breastworks were stormed and captured, the negroes taking refuge iu the court house, the doors of which were bar ricaded. After some further fighting the negroes threw out a flag of truce, and several detachments ot men advanced on it, wheu they were tired on by the besieged party, wounding several, one of whom was Captain Hodnat, who was bhot iu the I towels, and it is feared fatally wounded. They then retreated to tbe outside of the breastworks, and as the only means of dislodging the negroes, the courthouse was set on fire, and they were shot as they came from the burn- Argenta at twenty-two minutes past twelve o'clock and reached Russelville at forty-two minutes past three making the distance, seventy-five miles, in three hours and twenty minutes. The citi zens of Little Rock, anticipating the wants of the visitors, bountifully pro vided wines, liquors, and edibles, for the excursionists. Colonel Beaumont, the superintendent; Captain Robinson, en gineer; Colonel Curry, contractor; and Colonel Everett, manager and director acted the hosts, and left nothing undone to accommodate their guests, and show to the world that, so far as constructed the Fort Smith and Little Rock road is secoBd to none in the country. The party was a most convivial one, and Memphis and Little Rock seemed wedded in soul and in interest Memphiaus were astonished at the fer tile soil, euticintr prairies and unbound ed resources. Upon returning, for awhile the train was moving at twenty-five miles per hour; meetinjr at Little Hook upon the train, General Bishop, chair man; Captain O'eullivan, secretary who agreed and definitely understood that St. Louis and Memphis would send delegations to Little Rock the first of May, to forward the railroad and com mercial interests of each other on that occasion. Speeches were made by- Colonels DuPre, fc-verett, Beaumont, Davis, .Picket, t l.er aud Captain W. J Murphy. Unanimous determination was manifested to push the railroad iu terests of the State. Thanks were cor dially tendered the officers of the road for their kind consideration and the distinguished treatment after the gala day.

The captain of the steamer South western makes the following statement: " We arrived at Colfax Sunday morn ing about eight o'clock, and found that the white people, with the sheriff, I sup pose, at their head, had captured the town, after having had . a conflict with the negroes. It was reported to me that about one hundred negroes had been killed aud many others wounded. We saw from the boat about eighteen or twenty lyiug around on the banks, dead.

That committee, I am informed, declined to act in the premises, and as the subject was not definitely acted on by the common council, I have called you together this evening to ask that you refer the investigation to a joint committee of your honorable body, desiring that the matter be promptly aud thoroughly inquired into and re ported back to you for such further ac tion as you may deem requisite and proper.
