The adoption of the aiiuameter in Memphis would prevent such an ex travagant waste of water, and eirectuall v suppress the annoying habit of the hose lunatics. It is said that the editor of the Hel ena ll'o-t; glues his hair so as to cause it to stand up and give him a ferocious appearance. If he only glued his tongue, lie might be considered respectable. James Dolemau, who solves the in scrutable mysteries of the tax-lists that drive tax-payers crazy, asks the fourth ward to come to see him at ouce, at 4H Madison street, and thus save twenty live per cent.

In fact, aside from social pleasures, the Old Folks could have no reason besides this to live. The concern might as well die. . . The pupils of the High school, under charge of their efficient principal, line Jennie Higbee, had a ramble through the woods in the vicinity of the flourishing towu of liartlett yesterday. The day was spent very pleasantly, the vouog ladies wandering in pairs and threes under the shade of the green wood trees, gathering wild-flowers and studying the rudiments of botany. They met a cerdial and warm reception from the sood, kind folks of liartlett. and were earnestly requested to reieat the visit. f w1 Last night a lamp exploded in the rear part of Hitzfeld & fc'ou's non-explosive mammoth oil factory, on Second s'net, near Monroe. Considerable ex citement was caused, and the building was in imminent danger of destruction, when theiuaugurai fire wasextinguished bl the prompt efforts of Sergeant Arrata and Officers Fitzgerald and Scott, the latter of whom had his hands burned in his brave dealings with the flames. Al though some one cried for the water hose, not one of the many who amuse themselves in sprinkling the streets and annoying pedestrians appeared at the scene of alarm. The lady managers of the Church Orphans Home tender their thanks to the following named gentlemen for as sistance at the recent festival: General J. S. Williams, Cor use of the hall; Mr. L. L .Li rie. for refreshment privileges at Exposition hall; Mr. William Luun, for use of gas fixtures; Bolen, Huse & Co., tot ice; editors of the Appeal, for free publication, and to all others who as sisted or donated.

MISS TROUT, Treasurer. Yesterday afternoon a difficulty be tween John Steffani and a painter named Fisher, iu James & Roosa's wagon-yard, on Jefferson street, came near causing the death of a harmless i.ystander. r isher struck Meffam with stick, and this so enraged the latter (hat he drew a pistol and tired, the ball missing his enemy, but unfortunately striking in the right hip of Henry Hil derbrand, who was standing near by. Tie wound is trivial, and no serious effects will result from it. Stenaui was .rrested, and in addition to giving bail or his apjiearance to answer the charge ti shooting with intent to kill, he was also required to put up a forfeit of fifty ioiiars for snooting m tne corporation. Last night in Dougherty's saloon, corner of Gayosoand DeSoto streets, two negroes had a dimculty, and one named Jack Brown tried to shoot the other; the cap burst but the pistol did not fire, whereupon the other negro drew a cot- on-hook and rushed uton mown, who tied through back alleys hotly pursued by Officers Davis aud Walsh. Brown was followed into the beat of Officers Cullen and McKeuney, who also gave chase to the fugitive. A citizen on horseback overtook Brown and halted lim near the corner of Vanee and Wel liigton streets, where he was turned over to Officers McKenney and Cullen. The officers kept in sight of Jirown all the time, despite bis mile beat and cun ning efforts to elude them. W. B. Wiggst, formerly of this city, low of New York, sends us the old and ried remedy for incipient cholera-uior- nis. it cou-ists 01 ntiai parw 01 lauti- tnum, spirits of camphor and tincture d rhubarb. Dose, thirty djops every our hours, in diminishing doses, or in ucreasing doses, if the proper effect be not produced. Injections of starch and laudanum are commended, and mustard iKiultioes and perfect rest. In most vio lent attacks tinctures of equal parts of opium, capsicum, ginger and cardam: Dose, thirty to forty drops iu a little water, and from tliree to four drops of hloroform may be added in violent at tacks. Strong poultices should be ap plied to the stomach, arms, legs and feet. Doses of brandy and bottles of hot water sinapisms and friction often work wonders. Give the least possible water during and after the attack. A little nrrowroot and brandy is often ser viceable as recovering progresses. The best preventative is perfect cleanliness aud use of pure water. Remember that symptoms of diarrhea are precursors of cbolera-rnorbus, which prevails in all st.t.ithern countries wheu the spring and summer are wet and hot. Supplyj your household with these medicines. The hand-hose business is becoming nuisance in our city. Unless it is s'.opjied, the "peace and dignity" of the metropolis will certainly be worked "against." Nothing but a very large development of religious patience, and . sense of the exceeding broad-faced complacence of the man at the nozzle, prevented a muscular christian of our .uquaiutauce from indulging in the noole art of self defense, by "punching the 'ed" of the hose holder, on Main street yesterday. Our friend was attired a la mode, and moving along with the exquisite anticipations incident to mak ing au impression on the "most beauti fied Ophelia" of his offections, wheu, GENERAL COUNCIL.

In regard to the payment of certain money to Dr. Butler for property taken from him by the city, Alderman Busby read a letter from this gentleman, who stated that Mr. Nichols was only his agent; that he had never received any thing from the city. Alderman Davis said Mr. Lenow had paid to Mr. Nichols sixteen hundred dollars for the property for which the city was now asked to pay sixteen hun dred dollars. If Nichols was the agent of Dr. Butler, and received this consid eration at that time, Dr. Butler had no claim upon the city. If Nichols was not Dr. Butler's agent, then the city owed him the money. He wanted the petition referred to the mayor and city attorney. It was very strong in bis mind that Mr. Nichols was the author ized ageut of Dr. Butler. Alderman White said the committee had lieeu appointed a year ago wheu Mr. Davis was not a member of the board. The matter had been fully ex amined by a committee a month ago, aud although Mr. Davis was a member the committee, he signed the report. Yet to-day he occupied the inconsistent attitude of wishing to refer it again. His course was absurd and seemed like childish play. There was no new evi dence. Alderman Robbins concurred in the remarks of Alderman White. He too, was a member ot the committee last year, and nothing was of record to show "that Dr. Butler had ever received any thing from the city. The matter had tieen fully investigated. The claim was originally six thousand six hundred dol lars, but the committee, after sifting it, reduced the claim to sixteen hundred dollars. The report of the committee recom mending that Dr. Butler be allowed a credit of sixteen hundred dollars on his taxes was adopted, Alderman Davis vot iug in the negative. The committee to whom was referred the erection of gas-posts in Chelsea recommended the same by adding Fifth street to Manassas on Auction and the Raleigh road; on Winchester avenue from Auction to the Memphis and Ohio railroad. The report was adopted. PETITIONS. Froui Lou. Loubrie, asking an appro priation and appointment of committee to . --ist iu securing the establishment of a fountain in Court Square.

Granted. A BOARD OK HEALTH. Alderman Busby offered a resolution creating a board of health for the city of Memphis. The board is to consist of live physicians and fivs citizens from various parts of the city. Major Busby said he had conversed with some of the leading physicians, who offered to en gage without charge in this sanitary measure. Alderman Davis wanted to amend by having three physicians to constitute the board of health, two to receive a salary of fifty dollars per month and the third to act as secretary at a salary of one hundred dollars per month. Alderman Robbins said he saw good reason for having the services of five physicians, wheu they offered them free. Some time since Alderman Davis said there was no money In the treasury, but now he wanted to pay men who offered to work for nothing. The amendment received no second, and the resolution as offered was adopt ed under a suspension of the rules, and sent to the other board for its aetion. BUSINESS EROM THE OTHER BOARD.
