Yesterday waa the loveliest of the season. Richard the Third at the Theater to-night. The school board meets jaext Mon day niaht. An unusual amount of business will be transacted. Richard the Third is the play at the Theater to-night. In this role Barrett will again edify alljwho attend. The Theater matinee this afternoon will be of Marble Heart. The sympa thetic ladies will of course shed a bushel of tears. The workingmen hold a meetinR at the city hall to-night lo discuss the pro posed amendments to the city charter of Memphis. The plank roadway from Union street to the elevator Is covered with mud, which could be easily removed by the chaingang. There was a full house at the Thea ter last nicht to enioy Barrett's "Shy- lock," which was rendered with great etlect ana artistic nueitty. A Bpecial meeting of the chamber of commerce will be held at four o'clock this afternoon for the purpose of discuss ing the Texas Pacific railroad. Memphis has the best grocery mar ket in the southwest. Her merchants offer better goods, and at lower figures, than can be had in any other city. The MartU Gras visitors have all left the city. TLey were pleased with their visit, and will not soon forget the gorgeous magnificence of the occasion. The Marble Heart will be played at the Barrett matinee this afternoon. Of course there will be a full house, for Bar rett is one of the most excellent actors of the age. To-morrow is St. Valentine's day, and we understand that Cupid has just received a large lot of his golden darts from Mansford's, corner Second and Monroe streets. Now that Mardi Qras has passed away, let the attention of the city author ities be directed to the improvement of the streets, the preservation of which is of the greatest Importance to our city and commerce. While Mr. J. W. Voorhies and family, of Basket Landing, were attend ing Mardi Qras, last Tuesday, their residence caught fire and with its con tents was burned to the ground. Loss, two thousand dollars; no insurance. Despite the drouth and shortness of the cotton crop in the section of country adjacent to Memphis, our city has al ready received over 207,687 bales this season. This fact shows that Memphis is extending her cotton trade, and will continue to add to her patronage the products of distant sections. Now let us get the Texas Pacific railroad. The Man O'Airlic, which will be played at the theater Monday night by Lawrence Barrett and troupe, Is one of the most interesting ever produced, and elsewhere has drawn crowded houses; "We predict a full house for Barrett's Man next Monday night. The play is especially attractive to the refined and truly appreciative person. All printers and meritorious editors can appreciate the following lines, writ ten by some unknown " fixture " upon the doorway of a building: A tub is but tho hanger-on The skirts of " honest toll ;" A useless thing, a-nondescript Among bright blades, a foil ; Rut all the Joys no tongue can tell ' An honest rub may feel When " regs " lall In the ranks And drop their " rules " of steel. REGULAR. In answer to the above, a sub wrote the following: The wretch who wrote tho above Had better keep away, Or an exasperated tub Will reach for him borne day. The borrow of unfortunates, When times are so depressing, Is not a rub Ject lit for such Unwarranted aggression.. SUB. The Southern dental association finished its session yesterday. Its next mnotltlfr will ha !n VaaltiTl 1 In A n.l T ... 1876. Dr. Freeman, a leading and ac complished dentist of the city of Nash ville, commented very gracefully and with sarcastic elc quence upon the fail ure of the Memphis press to report the proceedings) of the association. He said that the Memphis press was represented in full at all masauerades and negro balls, but ignored the worthy dental as sociation. This accomplished dental orator became enthusiastic upon the suoject, and has doubtless achieved a great triumph, of which he is deserved ly proud. He is a very truthful gentle man, and no one should doubt the state ments made by the eminent dentist, whoso code of ethics considers it dis graceful to advertise in any newspaper. Furbush, the negro sheriff of Lee county, has been mysteriously mur dered. "Wednesday evening he look passage on the steamer A. J. White, from this city, having two horses with him. He left the steamer at Peters's Landing, Arkansas, and started through the woods in the direction of Marianna. Next morning his lifeless bedy pierced with seven buckshot was found by the roadside several miles from the river, and as yet nothing is known about the murder. Tt la thnitnl, i, .r. while riding along the road, and that the murder was committed bysome foe who had been apprised of the fact that he would leave the steamer at Peters's Landing and travel by horse to Marian na. Jjurbush. it will be remembered, killed young Woods In a row at Mari anna last November or December.

Dr. Enno Sander, of St. Louis, Is visiting the city. Randolph Rogers, the great sculp tor, charmed with The Man o' Airlie, volunteered, should Mr. Lawrence Bar rett ever visit Rome, to immortalize in endurinc marble thocbaracterof "Hare- bell," anu ma own ueiigut at ma per formance. The Muscatine Daily Tribune of Sun day last says the news of the death, by consumption, of Mr. George Q. Ma ban, of Memphis, touched with sorrow many hearts in that city. "Deceased was engaged in active business life among us from 1854, when he came to Muscatine, until 1860, the year of his departure for Memphis. He carried his ardent temperament and zeal with him into the church and social circle, and wherever he moved he stamped the mark of strong traits of character. He was of a Kentucky family, but born in Palmyra, Missouri. His southern birth affected him powerfully In sympathy with that section during the war, though prior to the rebellion his politics were of the liberal school of Henry Clay. De ceased would have been fifty years old next mouth. He leaves a widow and three children. His remains will be brought here for interment. Mr. Maban died possessed of his old residence on Fifth street, and had intended to remove here next spring. It is expected that his family will make their residence In this city." The Tipton Record says of Colonel William Sanford, appointed aid-decamp on the staff of Governor Porter, that he is one f the rising young men of theStato: "He possesses talents of a high order, to which are added the graces of refinement and culture, and though a young man, has earned the reputation of being an excellent lawyer. In thelast;Democratic convention which nominatid Governor Porter to his pres ent office, Colonel Sanford was the only delegate from Tipton county, with in structions to cast her ballot for Gover nor Porter. During the stormy session of that body, Colonel Bailey, who is his near relative and personal friend, was at one time nominated, with many chances of success in his favor; but Col onel Sanford held firm his support to Governor Porter, and contributed very greatly in bringing about the fortunate result obtained in that convention. These facts, although unknown to Gov ernor Porter, make his recognition of his personal worth by the governor a very fit recompense for his fidelity on that occasion." LAW REPORTS.

Dinbury and Detroit are not the only cities where ludicrous events happen to demure and well-meaning men. Col lierville produces an item of interest oc casionally of the same kind so frequent ly related by Messrs. Bailey, Max Adler, and others. Some days as;o Mr. Porter, who does business on the east side of the public square, but little more than a stone's throw from the depot, had occa sion to visit Memphis, and prepared himself for going upon the mail train which passes there at a quarter past nine o'clock each morning. Becoming deep ly engaged in discussion with some of his friends as to the propriety of taking ladies to the approaching Mardi Gras, he was startled by the shrill whistle al most at the depot, and the train moving rapidly. The little negro boy had only shined one of Mr. Porter's boots, and taken the othor off his foot for the same purpose. No time was to be lost, how ever, as the train is allowed but ono minute at a station, and Mr. Por ter, pulling on his boot, ran out hurriedly, anu maue goou time towaru the train. It was one of those cold, windy days, about the first of February, and. as if to aKtrravate the uneasy Mr. Porter, oil went his hat and ran like a thing of life quite a distance up the street, in an opposite direction from that 113 owner wouiu navo ueaircu. j.t uum not do to go off with no hat, so Mr. Por ter retrained the same with some delay, and made faster time trainward than ever. Now this fast speed made mat ters worse, for Mr. Porter, stepping upon a brickbat, which turned, fell lull length upon the ground. Just then a country man's horse, which had broken from Mm rank unou the approach of the train, came running by, which caused those who had not seen Porters ian to say, ' Porter's horse has thrown him." Others cried out. "Catch Porter's horae." Mr. Porter was obvious to all this, and rising up, made again for the train, which by this time was steaming loudlv and beciuninc to move. Mr. Porter thought he could make it, but knew it would take good speed. The new platform at the depot, over which he must needs go, unfortunately is so flat that after a rain nearly half of It re mains covered with water about one-fourth inch in depth. On this occasion the keen winds had frozen the standing water into a sheet of ice. Mr. Porter would have gone around this but for cotton bales that had been laid on the dry places. He pressed intently forward, therefore, re ceiving no drawback on account of the ice until he had nearly crossed over, when both feet slipped from under him in the easiest possible manner. He sat down as gracefully as any ono would have done under the circumstances, but the descent was so forcible he broke through the ice breaking a space about the size of a wash-tub. Here he came in contact with the coldest water he had ever felt, just underneath the ice, which caused his up-rising to be about as rapid as his down-sitting. After this he walked leisurely to the train, present ine a ludicrous appearance, with mud on coat and pants at some points, and water on his pants at otner parts, nis remarks reminded his heroes of all the heathen deities, and also of the old gentleman who tempted Eve, when he found the train referred to was only a gravel train that had run in upon the side-track to await the arrival of the mail train. SOUTIIEUW DENTAL ASSOCIA Results of AnnunI Session Closed in thla City Yeslerdwy Papers Koad Officers Elected. The Southern dental association, af ter a few davs session, adjourned yester day afternoon. The session was marked by an extreme degree of interest, parti& ipated iu by all members, which num ber included many of the most promin ent dentists of the south. Several ex tremely interesting papers- were read, among wnich may be noticed that by Dr. o. Jr. cutler, or Memphis, on ier- mentation and spontaneous generation, and that of Dr. Coy, of Baltimore, on dental education. The attention and interesting discussion excited by these papers indicate the desire animating the profession for an uninterrupted course of improvement in tne metnoas oi euuca tion, so as to cultivate the profession to the highest possible standard. Many interesting remarks were made on the subjects pertaining to daily practice.and the feeling and opinion of the members upon many subjects wmcu nave neeu matters of doubt were elicited. Upon the subject of uitrous oxide gas the feeling was almost unanimous tuat lis use is to be as a general tmng con demned. Cases were reported in which injury more or less permanent resulted, and iu some cases actual death ensued. The unanimity of views expressed indi cate a very decided opposition to the use of the gas. Interesting discussions upon the topic of filling-materials showed that the members were mostly in favor of soft foil fillings; that they deprecate the use of adhesive gold in most cases; that thev would, iu some, deprecate the use of gold at all, and insert only tin-foil, or piaster mimes or other Kinus. in re gard to the much-discussed subject of capping nerves when exposed, tne soci ety condemned the practice general ly. In Euch cases they - recom mend the removal of the nerve and the filling of the root. Some dif ference of opinion was expressed as to what is the best material for filling the root; but the general sense was that the peculiarities of individual cases would indicate the proper material for the fill ing. As to contour fillings, the society does not recommend them, the work and expense necessary not being in com port with the value resulting. The file used freely so as to open up the cavities, will receive the indorsement of the as sociation. We are gratified to give our fullest in dorsement and aid to the objects and aim of thi important association, being Durelv an annual convocation of dentists for the purpose of mutual interchange of views and proiessionai improvement. The hi3tory of all such associations has been that they are of incalculable bene fit both to dentists and tho community at large. It Is not, as some may sup pose, a meeting for the purpose of estab lishing prices; its object is wholly lor the purpose or bringing together that which is valuable and progressive, and of eliminating that which is undesirable in the practice of dentistry. It is only from the experience of many that truth can be obtained. After electing Dr. W.T.
