Jet Jiim try again. Be brief, ind fill your paper on ene side only of each sheet with facts, and then you will win lame as a correponaent. Uncle Jim (the Modoc and Captain Forrest were .hurried to one of the cells in the Adams street stationhouse, about ane o'clock yesterday morning, by cries ot murder. Turee men were confined in the cell, and one of them, maddened by whisky, assaulted the others. The infuriated man, after knocking one of nis reiiow prisoners down, commenced uiting the other's ear, causing him to bout for aid. Upon entering Captain Torrey was beset by the irate man, and was compelled t knock nim down with a .bunch of keys. The blood flowed freely, and its loss was somewhat instru mental in sobering the drunken man who regrets his lunatic efforts at homi cide. The followineoricinal I ?) naratrranh appeared in a wnty local coiemnorarv yesterday, nnd in the Vicksburg Herald, on inesixin. omce it is tnus uoumy original, everyooay snouiu laugn lero- elously at it Of course Its good and or iginal.

Moreover, is ucain represented on ine pale Horse, In order that he may have increased fa cilily in kicking the bucket?" Now its very nice to have intellects that work together so harmoniously; one in Vicks- nunr. tne other in Memphis. What a delightful theme for spiritualists, and now amazing this communion of spirits Last nicht the Memmiis Socicla di Uinonc e FrcUcUarua JlaUana met for the purpose of considerins: the propriety of withdrawing from the grand union of the United States. The resolution to Withdraw was not adopted, and the so ciety will continue its connection with the, grand union. The meeting was largely attended, and among the earnest opponents to the proposed withdrawal was Signor Signafgo, of tho Grenada (Miss.) Sentinel, who made an able fcpeech that was not without its ef fect. The society is now Jn a most pros perous condition, and has over four thou sand dollars in its treasury. We are glad to know that this honored onranl zatiou prospers so well, and trust its fu ture career may, like its past career, be one of usefulness and charity. In point of speed, as well as iu at tendance, the races at the" Memphis trotting-park yesterday were superior to those of the previous week. Some time before the hour announced, for the race to take place, tho arena or stable-yard at the track was filled with vehicles of every description, from tBo ordinary dog-cart to the most richly-adorned ba rouche, while buEuIes and private turn outs were there by the dozen, all going, filled with gentlemen, to see the sport. After a careful examination of tho stock entered for the race, the visitors ad journed to the grand stand, where the auburn-haired pool-seller had mounted a box, and, in his effeminate voice, summoned "All you who want to buy pools, come up here right away,' and they "come up" to a rather animat ed tune. The race ws for fifty dollars, mile heats, best three In five, to rule for horses that never had beaten o:iu, ana the best horse to win, and closed with the following entries: A. B. Smith en ters b. h. Saltltlver (no pedigrees neces sary); C. H-Brackett enterss. h.Shinda- honis; wnnam Montgomery enters u. h. George, and Woodie Han enters s. m jfannic. IN THE POOLS, which were rattled off lively by the handsome auctioneer, Brackett's entry was the choice in the start: salt ruver, second, Montgomery's George, third; and the mare in the field,- but soon changed, the hugely-hoofed Salt River naving several inenus wno uesirea to see their favorite sell first, and did, once or twice, when SHINDAHONIS stock again went up, the others selling in the order nrst nameo. Alter me assemblage had deposited all of their snare chanrre in the pool-box. taking re ceints therefor in the shape of small tickets of different colors, the president of the association selected the judges, timers and distance-judge, and those gentlemen TAKING THEIR POSITIONS, the order was civen to "hitch up," and that being done, they, witn tneir drivers, were summoned to appear at tbejudges' stand, where Mr. M.

In this posi tion tbe horses came down the stretch for tbe FIRST HEAT, all getting an even start, Brothers slight ly in the lead.

At the pole Brackett's entry challenged for the front, and got it alter slight urging, and began grad ually to increase the distance between his sulky and the nose of Brothers until the half-mile pole was reached, when he was about SIX LENGTHS AHEAD, Salt Elver followinir the second horse and about the same distance behind, and Hall having come to a full stop, owing to tbe breaking of one of his reins, and only by a dexterous jump from the sulky to the back of his pet did he secure the broken rein and prevent a run-away that might have resulted seriously. At the THREE-QUARTER POLE Brackett was eight lengths ahead, and there concluded that he would take the heat. Smith, thinkiner that he mieht possibly "go up Salt river," urged his steed a trifle and gained a few feet on Brothers, who, in his second place, was making terrible efforts to close the gap between him and the swanied trot ter, but to no avail, as he came down 1 me HOME-STRETCH at a thundering gate, spreading the dust in an directions, and passing me "marit" seven or eight lengths ahead of Broth ers, the Salt river horse' and Hall's entry being distanced.

In this position mey moved around to me quarter-pole, and on to theiialf-mile stake, each hold ing his own until they had reached it. when Brackett slackened his reins a second and his horse opened a davlieht- distance of about four lengths between himself and George, and kept that posi tion to the three-quarter pole, when Brothers crawled upafraction, but failed to get his nose even with the sulky wheels of his competitor, who came down the HOME-STRETCH making about as rapid strides as he could well do, and "toeing" tbe mark about three lengths ahead ,of Georgie, making tne neat in:u5.

At a ineetinir of tho colored citizens, held July 30, 1873, a committee was ap pointed to urate me ioiiowmg preamble and resolutions, which were discussed and adopted at a meeting held the colored citizens last night, at the Hons or -tarn's hail, on uayoso street: We, the undersigned committee, ap pointed at a meeting of the colored citi zens of Memphis, held July 30th, to draft resolutions in lieu or those which came out in the Appeal of July 6, 1873, submit the loiiowing preamble anu resolutions: We, the colored citizens of Memphis, desire to nive expression to our appreci ation of what has been done for us. and what is still being done In behalf of our public schools. We are not unmindful of the fact that we have a good and ef ficient school law, which contemplates, in its very wise and benevolent arrange ment, me education oi me masses to an educational equality that will fit them for tho transactions of all ordinary busi ness in life, and make of all who wish to avail themselves of the opportunities thus oiler ed good and useful citizens. We feel truly grateful for what has been doneby our boardof education forthe pur- poseof ameliorating the condition of our public schools, we confess with pride that more has been done in this direc tion within the past three months than within the previous three years. We feel It our duty to say something at this lime that will prove to our fellow-citi zens and to the world mat Ave are not wholly indifferent to the educational in tcrests of our children. True, matters pertaining to our schools have long worn such a disorganizing appearance that many of our best citizens have long looked upon them with distrust. But we are happy to say ol a truth that, owing to changes as alluded to above, many 'friends have been made for our colored public schools. Notwithstand ing what has been doneforthe improve ment of our schools, we think there are many other things yet necessary to be done, which are essential to the efficient working of our schools: therefore Jiesolved, That our honorable school- board be and is hereby respectfully re quested to give us such suitable school buildings forthe ensuing year as will fa cilitate the labor of both teachers and pupils, and thereby render efficient the work of both. Resolved. That in view of tbe fact that much has been said respecting me neg ligence of some of our children in the public schools, we respectfully ask that we may have no teachers whose moral character and experience as teachers cannot be substantiated by acquaintance or recommendation to the officer whose duty it is to assign the teachers to the various schools after the requisite exam ination. Mesolvrd, That we desire and ask that no exertions snail be snared to procure good teachers, but wo desire that when there is a white and a colored applicant lor our scnoois me colored teacher may have thepreferencewhen hisor her com petency and qualification in every re spect are the same. We will also render every assistance necessary to the school board ror obtaining good and competent teacners ror our scnoois. -tespectiuiiy, ED. SHAW, Chairman. J. THOMA", Secretary. L. C.

The fowls were in a bag, and upon the arrival of the prisoner at the Adams street stationhouse they were turned loose in the court to await iden tjty. According to agreement, an at torney who plead the prisoner's case before the recorder was to receive the chickens in consideration of hislegalser- ices. JSo sooner had the attorney gained the discharge of his client by therecorder than he went into the stationhhouse to secure his fowls, which, innocent of their destination, were feeding on the crumbs In the high-walled yard. The negro, upon being released, started ror home, and Sergeant Featherstone, the stationhouse-keeper, not being aware of his contract with the lawyer, told the latter he could not release the fowls ub less by order of court, or upon the state ment or their owner. The attorney be came excited, and informed the sergeant mat Harris had been discharged, and had gone off. The sergeant advised tbe lawyer to pursue the quondam client and have him present to make the trans fer and delivery perfect. The attorney immediately went to Main street, and, catching sight of Harris, told him to stop. Harris, thinking the lawyer wanted to have him arrested, com menced running, and then was witness ed a first-class foot-race down Main street. After a long chase, the indefatl gable lawyer overtook Harris, who, being informed of affairs, returned with the lawyer to the stationhouse, and told me siationnouse-ueeper to let me gen tleman have the chickens. Harris went in the yard to catch them, but the lawyer locked the door, telling him he was going to imprison him for causing such trouble in catching him. This was only a joke, nnd the lawyer, upon going Into the yard to catch the chickens, found him self locked up. This was turning the joke, and after being released he amused the chickens thirty minutes and seven teen seconds, chasing them around the yard. He finally left in disgust, and the chickens are still at large in tbe station- house "yard, enjoying the crumbs of prison life. .

Anderson, Revenue Commissioner of oneiDy county: Dear Sir I see in the Appeal of the third an editorial article headed, "The Persecuted Wretches," from which it seems that a portion of your citizens take the opinion of tho supreme court in the case or McBao vs. McLemore's heirs, decided lately at Jackson, as determin ing that the act of 1873, chapter 118, re peals the law of 1872, chapter 3, under which you are acting. 1 write to say that such is not tho opinion of tbe attor ney-general. The titles of the two acts show the different purposes for which they were intended. The act of 1872 is. "To provide for the sale of lands which have been sold for taxes due tbe State and bought In by the collector of revenue." In other words, itisanact to sell the State's interest in lands hith erto purchased by the State under tax sales. Several weeks since I received a certified codv of the opinion in the case of McBae vs. McLemore's heirs, and Im mediately submitted to me attorney- general a question as to the effect of the act of 1873 upon the act of 1872 under his construction of this opinion of the court. He argued the case before the supremo court, and says that the act of 1872 was not in the contemplation of tho legislature when it passed the act of 1873, and that the act of 1872 was not oeiore me court wnen it consiaerea uie. act of 1873. You will please govern yourself accordingly. Respectfully, JOHN C. BURCH, Comptroller.
