Neuralgia is becoming 'quite com mon in the city, owing to the sudden change in the weather, and bandaged faces are not unfrequently seen. Late yesterday afternoon, Officer Ahl arrested Ed. Henderson for assault ing a bar-keeper in Linderman's saloon, Washington street, with a pistol. A fight took place in theBartlett court yesterday between a well-known lawyer and a deputy-sheriff. -Nobody hurt. The couit asserted its dignity. One of the sprightliest little boys in the south is Willie Toler, son of W. M. Toler, of this city. He is only five years nf arra an ii liivs made a small fortune selling newspaper, at the Peabody hotel. JohnF.

It is said that a nesro living at Fort Pickering last Tuesday caugnt a cat-nsn, and found in its stomach a silver fork bearing on its handle the inscription, "Steamer John Simonds," and a lady's gold locket containing the name of its former owner and a wruath of auburn hair. George Green, colored, who agreed to do a certain amount of work for and in consideration of a coat, became tired of his labor and stole the article of per sonal apparel from his employer's room on Adams street. He was arrested yes terday for obtaining money under false pretenses. For the information of a Hernando correspondent, we would say that we nave aireauy puonsneu jsagy aua j. arc Out, and on account of its great length must decline to do so again. The poem lias recently been published in book- form, and may be had at any of the Memphis booK-stores- Desnite the shattered memories of his legal experience, the Ledger man is iu error when he says no person has ev er been convicted of a fraudulent breach of trust in the courts of Tennessee. But the error is excusable, as it was made through kindness to Mrs. Leighton, the u-vonding Doarumg-iiouse Keeper. On Second street, yesterday, a little cirlwas observed sincinc "Shoo lly" from a hvmn-book, and tracing the notes with her ringers. A beautiful voumr ladv who is interested in the or thodoxv of religion, wants to know to what denomination this child belongs! We think she is preparing for the hym enial. While Lizzie Harris, a colored wo man who was just released from the Adams-street stationhouse, where she had been incarcerated for fighting, was absent from her home yesterday, her residence, No. 112 Jefferson street, was entered by unknown burglars, who car ried off all of the unfortunate woman's household chattels and personal effects, A negro named Warren Black was found dead near the railroad, yesterday morning, at Collierville, Tennessee. He had a hole in the back of his head as if made witli a sharp instrument, and there was a long, bruised streak down his back. It is supposed he was killed and then placed on the track, as he had a considerable Mini of money on hand. A negro was arrt-'.ed on suspicion. About nine o'clock yesterday morn' ine. the horse attached to Herzogci Bro.'s wairon, while ortno'bite the Louis ville depot, took fright and dashed down Main street. At the corner of Overton street the allirighted animal ran against a two-horse wagon that was crossing Main street, breaking the hind axle and its two wheels. Strange to say, Herzog & Bro.'s wagon was not damaged, nor was their horse injured. Sanitary-Sergeant Rogers yesterday arrested Dan Margah and William Campbell, who were fighting on the upper wharf for the amusement of the roustabouts on the barges and store boats lying there. Campbell was badly cut in the head, and the blood flowed out as fast as the water of a mountain spring. A doctor dressed Campbell'11 wouuus at uie bwuouuousc, irota wmcu the bellicose individuals were released upon a forfeit. We were yesterday shown a very Erolific cotton-stalk, grown byHudley rothers on Surrounded Hill, which has twenty-uve mousanu acres 01 imame land, six thousand being in cultivation. The stalk is four feet high and five feet in diameter, bearing three hundred and five squares and bolls, all of which are in a healthy condition and well devel oped. Surrounded Hill is located be tween White and Cache rivers, Arkan sas, and Is eighty miles by the Little Kock railroad from this city. Justice Caldwell had an exciting case in his court yesterday, it being the State vs. William Rattler, alias William Keysley, colored, charged with attempt at the murder of another colored man, named William McClellau. Rattler is said to belong to a felonious ring of dis honest negroes who wanted to steal the will and certain papers of an old dead negro who had bequeathed a large amount of property to McClellan. In order to gain possession of these docu ments, which were in McClellan's house. Rattler commenced a malicious crusade against him. The accused was sent to jail in default of five thousand dollars bail.

He was above mediocrity in noth ing, and his relations to his family had popu larized him. Appeal 29A irut. Editors Appeal Your informant could not have been acquainted with Mr. F. M. Moore. That he possessed an extraordinary geniu3 Is evident from the number of trades he acquired. He was a blacksmith, carpenter, brickma son and machinist, and he had just in vented a gin-saw filing-machine, for trhlch he was nreparincr to obtain a patent, that would file two gins per day. And, besides, ho was about establishing a machine-suop auu louuury uu vnuce street, where he was able, willing and determined to do an extensive business. Such men are scarce, and his was a master mind. w. w. kitchie. Tuesday night Officer Duud, whilst out on Vance street, saw a wagon, occu pied by two drunken men, being driven along the railroad track, near James's park. The horses were so fatigued by rea son of their harrassed treatment that they refused to move from the track, and about this time the engine head- lichtof a speeding tram came in sigut. One of the men was so drunk that he dropped to sleep in the wagon, a roll of money lainug out 01 nts lMXJKet. 'ine other was too stupid to guide the horses from the track, a short distance down which the train came thundering on with lightning rapidity. AVith the aid of two other men, who happened to come up. Constable Dunn suc ceeded in removing the wagon from the track just in time to miss the cow-catcher of the engine. Five sec onds later and there would have been a frightful end to the lives of the horses and drunken men, who were the same persons arrested tnat morning oy iniei ai. .nroloco ilrivlnr nn Arlnms v" e SUCGL.

We trust his sojourn will be pleasantly spent in tnat deiignttui locality. Dr. E. S. Hatch, who has been so Journing at the celebrated Hot Springs of Arkansas for the past half dozen weeks, on account of accuterheumausm, returned home yesterday greatly im proved in health and strength. Senator James's diary, as kept in Arkansas, at Hot Serines, appears in the Union and American. It tells of the stoppage of rallway-traips because of the accumulation of mosquitoes on the track. It is very hard to get over. Mr. R. B. Denson, of the Memphis and Charleston railroad, has returned to the city from a trip to the Pacific, look- iner verv much improved.

Journal, soiouruine in Norfolk. He went from Southampton thirty-six years ago, where he was born. At tnat time xuempuis was a little village of less than one thousand inhabitants. Captain Lenow foresaw flip future trreatness the future greatness of the hamlet, and the growth of his own for- tunes has been concurrent with those of the citv now liishome. Memphis is sev- entv times lareer aud more populous than when Captain Lenow went thither, and the city and county have an as sessed wealth of fifty millions. With those of Memphis the interests of Nor folk are closely allied. Norfolk is by the sea. and Memphis, in the midst of an imperial valley, is on an arm of the sea another Venice at the head of an other Adriatic. Memphis sends abroad annually half a million cotton bales and has orten freighted steamers leaving mis port for Liverpool. The area of Mem- phis trade is constantly widened, and it lsdestiuedto rival St. Louis in wealth and enterprise and population. It was crushed by the woes of war which en- riched and aggrandized St. Louis and Louisville and Cincinnati. Captain Le- now, after all these years of absence, 1 comes to behold again the land of his nntivitv nnii tn wmi ovpr the craves of his kindred. He loves the land of his birth and venerates the name aud his- tory of the old dominion. STREET RAILROAD. Praise to Whom l'rnise in Dne-Stigges- llons Tor the Future Retlnce the Fare to Five Cents. Editors appeal The public ex press themselves well pleased with the many features of improvement inaugur ated by the new management of the city railway, in which the running of the cars with a greater degree of regu larity, their scrupulously cleanly condi tion, the deportment and general ap pearance of the drivers and attaches necessarily thrown in contact with the public all go to show that the manage ment has at last fallen upon gentlemen smiled in each of their departments, But the public are not yet satisfied. It is impossible to convince intelligent peo ple that it is wise to keep the rates of fare at six and a quarter cents, uy reducing the lare to live cents it would obviate many very grave inconveniencies, prominent amontr which is the one of having, as is almost universally the case, to stand until the driver has thrust his hand into every pocket in his garments and it appears sometimes that he ha3 more pockets than auv- other class of men to make the change, and to count out the usual "lour tickets ror aiuarter."

On Saturday, August 2d, the feast of me ucuicauon oi tne cuurch of Our Lady of the Angels, commonly called Portiuncula, will be celebrated at St Mary's church, corner of Market and Third streets. First mass will be at seven o'clock in the moming; high mass at nine o'clock. At fivo o'clock in the afternoon there will be vespers and benediction. A plenary' Indulgence may be gained by all the faithful who worth ily receive the holy communion after a good confession. The peculiarity of this Indulgence is that it may be gained as many times as this church is visited on that day and some prayers devoutly said according to the Intention of the Holy Father. This indulgence may also be applied by way of suffrage to the souls in purgatory. The holy communion requisite for gaining the indulgence need not be made in this church. THE MOORE MURDER.

Captain Harry Cranmer, the deputy-slierifl", in due course of time ap peared in Justice Caldwell's office and stated that the attorney-general declined to prosecute tne case, 'ine prisoners. Mrs. Moore and J. K. Hanson, were then brought before Justice Caldwell, who said: "Mrs, Moore, in accordance with the verdict of the coroner's jury and at the instance ol tne com munitv. I have issued a warrant of arrest for you and your nephew, Mr. Hanson, for the murder of your husband. Frank M. Moore. We have put you to a great deal of trouble for the benefit of tne community, tne state 01 wnose ieei lngs demanded the arrest. I now state that the charges, founded on supteion, have been withdrawn against both of you, and you are at liberty to depart this court." One of Mrs. Moore's attorneys said he wanted to say a few words in connec tion with the proceedings. He said that after a careful and candid attention to the case, he had satisfied himself that the prosecution had no foundation. Not as her attorney, but as a man and as a member of society, he could say she was uui guilty, xi w iiuu lamm uu uu in u most unguarded moments, and felt con vinced of her innocence. He made the statement, not as an attorney, nor in the interest of the accused, out in tne inter est of society, with a desire that the guilty person be punished. Before com ing to tin's city, he had a large practice in the law and much experience in crimi nal prosecutions. He had been in inti mate contact with all kinds of crime as a lawyer and after a close, cautious and scrutinizing intercourse with these ac cused parties, he had no hesitation, both as a man and a member of society, in savinfrilmt.fliprB wns not on sincrle in sfjincf. that imnnto-l to her -milt. He was satisfied that the person who com mitted the murder in the house did not tro there for that purpose. Jprom bia examination of and conversa- uon with Mrs. Jttoore he was satisfied there was no connection be- tween her and this transaction. An ecrenious mistake had been made in ar- resting iurs. Moore, and society wouia be convinced of this At the conclusion of the attorney's re marks. Mrs. Moore, who was dressed in deep mourning, and wore a heavy black vail which hid her pale face from the critical gaze of the curious, approached Justice Caldwell's rostrum anil extended her hand to him. She was followed by her nephew, J. R. Hanson, who, upon ... ... . i shaking hands with Justice Caldwell, said in a low, thick voice, "Good-bye." Justice Caldwell remarked: "1 tooK much pains, and think there is no ne- cessity for going through a tedious trial, to harass your leenngs, ours, juoore, when there is no evidence in the case. I made the investigation merely in ac cordance with the verdict of the coro ner's jury, and with a desire to satisfy popular sentiment." Her attorney replied that Mrs. Moore had no feeling in the matter, and is glad of the investigation. Justice (Jaldwell replied, saying to Mrs. Moore: "I am sorry you have been put to this trouble. Let the case be en- tered as a mistrial for failure of prosecu- lion to appear." At this the parties left the room, and were accompanied by their attorneys. The crowd was very much disappointed, as they evidently expected something new would be elicit- ed in the testimony 01 the witnesses.

Editors Appeal I read your edito rial on "infidelity," and proposed an swering it, but while preparing to do so a friend sent me tbe following editorial from the Nashville Union and Ameri can, which I send to you for publication as covering the whole' ground, and say ing all that I could or would say to you: The Memphis Appeal of the twenty fourth instant contains an editorial dep recating in set terms the growth of infi delity in the United States. It says "the religious faith of the people is daily growing weak. There is in our day and generation a wide-spread infidelity per vading the educated mind of the United States." No one who is well-informed can doubt the truth of the above state ment, while very few understand the cause or causes of this lack of faith in sectarian dogmas, called religion and Christianity. Educated men who pro fess to be christians devote their whole moral power and Intellectual force to the work of proving that the religion of ev ery sect is false but that advocated by the writer, or speaker, if preaching. Taken in the aggregate, all prove that every system of Christianity 11 an error, and wholly unworthy of belief. It is but a few years since the ministers of l a large and influential denomination taught from the pulpit that there are in fants in hell, not a span long, who had been there roasting for thousands of years, and would there remain in in tense suffering forever, a3 a just punish ment for man's original sin. The re action from this shocking faith was the dogma of universalism, which dis penses with all future punishments, re taining not even the Catholic purgatory. The lancet and the scalpel, in the hands of the doctors of theology, have bled and dissected Christianity to death in their fierce sectarian wars, and infideli ty is the outcome in the minds of large numbers. The Appeal discourses earnestly about " the alarmingly com mon vice of infidelity," " the church " and " churchmen," and thinks that the right of jury trial will be lost to the country if "no man believes in future rewards and punishments." Our con temporary can hardly believe that Christ died for all, and that a perjured juror or witness may repent and gotoheaven. It is a bad heart that generally gives life and vigor to infidelity, and not a weak faith in the divinity of Christ that corrupts man's moral principles. Sup pose one man honestly believes that three and two make six, and at the same time believes in the "Mother of God," and as some think, has an excess of faith; while another man equally hon est, believes that three and two make four, and is a Protestant, with weak and deficient faith. Another man takes the mean between these two orthodox opin ions, and says that three and two make five. Botli of these honest sectarians will agree that he is an atheist: and that their faith must not be subjected to the methods of exact science. Theologians have committed the serious mistaKe of exacting faith m their docr- mas without clear and satisfactory evi dence of their truth. This error sets un man's belief as above God's truth, than which it is not easy to find a more ca lamitous mistake. The founder of Chris tianity and his apostles laid ereat stress on its truth, and any one Who fears that it will be wanting when weighed in any exact balance, has that extreme weak ness of faith which kills what it so feebly supports. Paul saw this, and de nounced those of little faith. Church worship has become a matter of mere forms and ceremonies, with verv lit tle self-denial, charity, or puritv of heart. Christ indignantly scourged the money-changers out of the temple. Suppose all who love money more than the Saviour of man, were driven out of the American churches, would there not be many pews and pulpits to let ? Thousands have not piety enough to make decent hypocrites, some of whom are honored as pillars of the church. When a foot dies from gan grene, it must be cut off, or death ex tends to the whole body. Reformation, deep and vital, is the only thing that can cure the moral plague of present im piety and infidelity. Pure religion is an inspiration of the soul, such as Paul felt when the divine light overpowered him, and changed at once and forever the whole conduct of his life. Peter, whose name means a "rock," had the kind of religion most popular In modern cuurcnes, when he told three lies in succession, denying all acquaintance with Jesus in an hour of danger. He was not an infidel, nor was Judos, yet theirconductis not commendable. "Dis belief i3 not the great evil of the age, as the Appeal appears to imagine when it says : "If we can save the popular heart irom mis uisease, our country will still PUrSUe her Path Of neaceftll rrinmnli in all that make3 civilization illustrious: if nciuuiutuu, we siur ot ournappyre public will go out in darkness, and, it may be, blood." "The star of our hap py republic" needs only the pure ether inuixi no i L tfiiais iu uie universe, to shine on illustrious and forever not be lief in the mists, clouds, darkn ess and storms of conflicting superstitions and theologies.
