An ingenious Chinaman yesterday afternoon was exhibiting two paper cocks on Mam street to the infinite de light of juveniles and the wonder of older persons. The cocks were on wire frame, covered with different col ored tissue paper, which faithfully rep resented the learners, gills and wings. They were suspended from a rrame, and worked by means of a string at tached to tlttr heads. Leubrie purchased these rare'toys, and last night quite a crowd collected at his store to witness the fighting of these cocks, which were particularly interesting to the ladies, who have not the opportunity of visit ing tlie pits.

Mil ler will doubtlesa revisit the State prison. An unknown, who gave his name as Ben. Murphy, died last Thursday, under very sad circumstances at Bart lett. Wednesday he went to the house of a negto man and asked him for a drink of cold -water, stating that he had a very high fever and was quite sick. That afternoon a constable, while rid ing along the public road, saw Murphy lying on the ground, but thought he was some drunken man who had fallen asleep there. Returning next evening he eaw the man yet lying by the road side, and found upon questioning him that the siumberer was speechless. He notified Justice Caldwell of the lact and this official immediately had the man brought to his house and a physician summoned. Every attention possible was shown the unfortwate man, who died next afternoon and was btiriod bv strangers at Bartlett. The deceased had light hair, fair complexion and blue eyes, aud it may be that some of his friends are in Memphis. The followingcage of mlstakon idpn. titv should appear in the revise! mliHnn of Jlam'ptt Ihefe. Officer Getzendaner arrested Clara Lewis and a negro boy for disorderly conduct on Beale street, and took them to the statiouhouse to await trial. At the same lime Officer Sliecan arrested a negro boy named Ike Wheel er for "till-tapping." The morning after Getzendaner carried Clara Lewis and Wheeler 4 before Recorder Winters. Wheeleti&aserted his innocence, aud de nied anyknowledgo about the chitrge of disorderly dbnduct. But Officer Getzen daner asserted that he saw the same party, Wheeler, have his hand on tho old man who held Clara Lewis until a policeman could arrive. The charge not being sustained, the recorder discharged both parties, and Wheeler walked lei surely out of the office. When Officer Sheean arrived, ho searched all through the stationhouso for his prisoner, Wheel er, and finally ascertained that he had been tried in place of the other negro boy for disorderly conduct, and dis charged. Despite the heavy raiu, Ofli- eer Sheean started in pursuit of Wheel er, whom he recaptured and lodged in me siauonuouse to await inai io-mor- row morning. It may be gratifying to our readers to know that the SouthWTl-Exnrfs Com pany have reduced their rates at Teas seventy per cent, on freight sent to local stations on tlie Menphis and Charleston railroad. At one o'clock this morning a most violent wmusiorm, accompanied wuu threatening clouds, struck the city, playing sad havoc with swinjrinK siens. empty boxes and barrels, and loose things in general. As we write the clouds are thickening, and the prospects are spienum lor a small-sized deluge. The storm came from the northwest, aawaa wauw Vt"lJ Aa. AAaKUVe M a bank of clouds lay. Some attomnt has been made, for wuai reason we uo noiitnow, uu u. tliere is no cholera, to dispense with the health-officer and the board of health.

Tlie want of a board of health, from which proper statements as to the health of the . ni v I f linirn Ivton 1 a ti -t 17 1 r T"l thai city might have been had when the cholera first broke out in time, secured Memphis a notoriety that cost her there is no knowing how many hundred thou sand dollars.

UIPOKTAXT DECISION. Tax SiiItM Can Only be-Uade Under ttie I,aw of 1S7S, All Olliers Iinvms Been Repealed. ho Hna Onr Snnreiue Conrt A Ilocn ment of Vnlae to All Onr Tax Payers. Editors Appeal It is known several members of the bar that we have a copy of the opinion of the supreme court of Tennessee, delivered by Free man, judge, at tne late April term, isd at Jackson, upon the subject of the col lection of back taxes, and the sale o lands therefor. At the renuest of a nutn I . , . . . m , ber of these gentlemen, we send it to I juu lul I'uuumuuu. i':?-iTnv m-va-a ma via t I .In t- a n n lnaltATirrillltT , MrKreo Heirs of Suears Mc Lemore, This is a motion to condemn a tract of land, and order the same to be sold upon tho report of the tax-collector made to the circuit court 01 aiaoison county, The only question presented before us, nd whu;h we propose to decide, is the . . . . . . . . ' siuclo one made by the circuit judge. who refused to condemn the land be cause he held that tlie law under which it was asked had been repealed, by which we understand him to rule that section eighty, repeals all former laws for the sale of land for taxes, and pro vides a new mode or maKing such sales, n.ot omy Ior lu.ai .ueu " r . a 1 . i 1 1 I at parage 01 i' "u:(.'uT More it passage. The question is, ,was 1 ne correct w so uomma -oy iubbuhy- 1t f. thefcL?Ltll t vided, "That In all cases where taxes remain due and unpaid on the first day ?f June of the year following the year for which the taxes are due, me tax-cpi lentor shall mate out a complete list. , I, i ,i,rt l..,Tv, etc.; and then proceeds m the balance of the section and succeeding section, to point out, with great particularity, the mode of proceeding in sucu sales, ay sei tion ehrhtv it is enacted, "That all acts and parts of acts upon the subject of MMKsmpnr. nnu collection 01 uiaus auu sale of land for taxes in conflict with the provisions of this act, and all other acts in conflict with the provisions of this ant. b and the same are hereby re pealed." It is certain mat me taxes 01 1872 remaining due and unpaid on the first day of June, 1S73, are included in the language of section sixty-one of the mat me mouo 01 cmuicms mc collection of a debt due the state for taxes becomes irrepalable. We are familiar with the principle that the substantial remedy provided by law at the time or the creation of the debt cannot be so ta ken awavor chansred as to defeat or im pair the rieht of the creditor to enforce a contract entered into. But we do not see that this principle has application to this case. The creditor does not com plain that his right to his debt has been impaired, nor do we think such com plaint could be made, even incase it was a private creditor, wnue an equal lv efficient and substantial rem edy was provided by law. Be this as it mav. and we do not definitely decide how this is, it is, as we think, certain that the eightieth section, which we have cited, repeals all laws for the collection of taxes, anu saie 01 lanu f taxes, from and after its passace, .and no nourtfian tyroDerlvmake auvsale accruing beiore mepassage, mey stanu as if thev never existed have been ta- keu from the statute books, as laws, and have no binding force whatever, and as a matter of course cannot oe auminis- tered or enforced by the courts. the legislative will is distinctly and unequivocally declared and is conclusive upon all, that such laws are repealed.
