Nights of moonlit splendor, ro mantic and inspiring for lovers, will soon be here. Then listen for the mocking-bird among magnolia trees. Several birds of a strango species, that recently visited Court square, have disappeared from that vernal locality, and are doubtless warbling In some sun nier and warmer clime. Maneford, at the corner of Monroe and Second streets, has just received two interesting novels entitled Alice Lorraine and Our Detachment. Bow Bella tor May, is also at hand. In the fiirst circuit court yesterday the jury in the case of Foute vs. Crook, returned a verdict for the plaintiff in the sum of two hundred and fifty dol lars, this Leing the amount of the prin cipal sought to be recovered by the action. Now that the official ax has cut off a dozen or more members of the police force, it would be an act of graceful jus tice on the part of the general council to provide means by which these men may oe promptly paid off. This will obviate the painful necessity of disposing their "time" at depreciated prices. The "Washington Irving and Stew art literary societies, of Stewart college, Clarksville, Tennessee, have our thanks for an invitation to attend their anni versary celebration, Tuesday evening, June 1st. J. T. Plunkett and T. V. Moore, of Tennessee, are orators for the Washington Irving society, and C. E. Cunningham, of Mississippi, and J. It. Allen, jr., of Tennessee, for the Stewart society. The occasion will doubtless be interesting and attractive. The committee of arrangements ap pointed to prepare for the religious meet ings expected to be commenced next Friday evening, under the direction of the evangelists, Messrs. Whittle and Bliss, met according to announcement yesterday evening, and adjourned to meet again this afternoon at the close of the four o'clock union prayer-meeting, at the Cumberland Presbyterian church. The names of the committee were published yesterday morning. It is earnestly desired that every member will be present at the meeting this after noon. There is a great religious revival in progress at Humboldt. Among the con verts are I. P. Myers, of the Humboldt Herald' John C. Glenn, agent of the Louisville and Nashville and Great Southern railroad; Luther Sharp, Cam Rainey, Sharp Lenom, and Mr. Elliott, all well known residents of that town. We understand that Rev. Mr. Griffin, a Baptist minister from Browns ville, is conducting this revival, which is unuouDteuiy successful wiien editors, railroadmen and others of the above character are brought to repentance. May the good work continue and the list of conve rts be rapidly increased. ICOMAXG'E IN HEAL. J.lh'JZ. Mn. Jncob Brentcli and Her Sliming Lord "Ttlou Art So ft'tnr nnil Tel Ko Far." THE POLICE. BLOODY JIUICDEIC. ISKLIj COUNTY. Tlie WorU of ibe Commissioners Yester I rrdny Same or (be Policemen Be 'nliicil and Those Dlicbarffed. Tuesday afternoon, a passably good looking woman giving her name as Mrs. Jacob Breasch, called to see Mayor Loague at his office in the city hall, and interviewed him in the peculiar inquis itorial styleof the female when in search of knowledge and information respecting her former liege and lord. Mrs. Breasch made substantially the following state ment, which partakes somewhat of strange romance and eventful mystery. She is the chambermaid of the steamer Miuneola, a familiar sternwheel craft which has for years back lloated upon the bosom of the western waters, and is now running from Cincinnati to this city. Eight years ago her esteemed husband Jacob, a man of silent ways and inexplicable motives, leftherhome, at Pittsburg, and for a long while she mourned him as dead. About three mouths ago she received a letter signed by a man named Holland, and mailed in Germany, stating that she could learn the whereabouts of her long miss ing husband by addressing him in the care of Mansfield & Higbee, Memphis, Tennessee. ActiDg upon this suggestion she wrote a letter to Jacob, and in due time she received an answer, the style of which (being in numerals and pecu liar to his method of correspondence) she readily recognized as having been penned by that absent worserhalf. Then a regular and prompt correspondence ensued between her and Jacob. One of his latter letters stated that he was at Cotton Point, Missouri, and had met with some misfortune, as he has lost sev eral head of stock, and had no prospects of making a good crop This letter, however, with its story of misfortune, expressed no warmth of afiectiou and no wish on the part of the truant Jacob to see his devoted wife, from whom he had been absent eight years. Owing to her duties a3 chambermaid on the Miune ola, Mrs. Breasch could not stop off at Cottonwood Point without losing her position, upon which she depends for a livelihood. About two weeks ago, when the Minneola arrived here, the inquisi torial wife visited Mansfield's drug store for the purpose of learning the locality of him, and how he obtained the letters. It seems that a youth, who resides at Cottonwood Point and has dealings at Mansfield's, called for the letters, which were delivered to him, the gentle man to whose address they had been mailed not knowing anything of the cir cumstances related in this article. One day a negro called for Jacob Breasch's letters, but they refused to let him have them, as he was not deemed authorized to receive them. The above is the state ment of Mrs. Breasch made to Mayor Loague, who, wishing to find out what he could respecting the present condi tion and abode of her truant husband, deputized Captain Droescher the ser-geant-at-arms, to attend to the matter, in the effort to ascertain the desired facts and information touching this ro mantic affair, Captain Droescher will find ample scope for the display and ex ercise of whatever detective skill he may possess.

The sixth annual picnic of the Societa di Unione e Fratellanza Italiana, will be given at James's park next Wednes day, the nineteeth. This entertainment will be one of the grandest of the sea son. Knights of Pythias Picnic. Next Tuesday, the eighteenth, will be the occasion of the second annual Mem phis picnic at James's park, by the Knights of Pythias of this city. No im proper characters will be admitted to the grounds. This rule will be rigidly enforced by a special committee and a St. SXary's Cathedral Snuday-Nchool Plcslc. The Sunday-school of St Mary's Ca thedral andSt. Mary'sschool for boys will all leave the city on Saturday morning, and proceed to Eidgeway, where they wiil be joined by theSundav-schoolof St. Joseph's mission, which is in charge of the clergy of St. Mary's. A special train has been chartered, and a band of music will accompany the schools. All are looking forward to a day of real en joyment. The following have been ap pointed as a committee of arrangements and invitation: Frank Cruse, Lee Dix on, Willie Ross and Stoney Montgom ery, who will extend invitations outside the school. The children are requested to meet the clergy and the superintend ent (Dabney Scales, Esq ) in the church at nine o'clock in the morning, where they will obtain their passes and proceed to me uepoi. Bethel Concert To-Nlght. To-night the Memphis Bethel will give a jp-and vocal concert aud literary entertainment at the Memphis Theater. The programme of exercises has been judiciously arranged, and embraces features of rare merit and attractive in terest for those who are disposed to en Joy an evening of song and declamation by the well versed pupils of this insti tution, for the benefit of which the en tertainment is given. We are glad to know that a large number of tickets have already been sold, and that there will probably be a full hou&e present to recognize and in some measure reward the efforts of the officers and pupils who with untiring zeal have labored for the good and the future usefulness of the Bethel, an institution which above all others should be sustained by the citi zens of Memphis. HI. Peler's Snndny.School Picnic Yesterday the annual picnic of the St. Peter's chui. h Sunday-school was given at James's park. During the morning the children and teachers of the Sunday school marched in grand procession uown iiain sireer,tne column beingpre ceded by an escort of police, and headed by the Sodality band, which played a number of pieces during the march. A noticeable feature of the procession was the queen and her maids of honor, their nome persons Deiug enieiaeu irom the sun by a handsome canopy, which was supported by four pages. The children were dressed in white, many of them bearing bouquets and garlands of ever greens and roses, and the various ban ners of the Sunday-schools. The pro cession moved down Main street to Beale, and thence proceeded to James's park, where the amusements and fes tivities of the day were gracefully in dulged in and pleasantly enjoyed alike by the old and the young. The Confederate Picnic. The Confederate picnic to be given at James's park to-morrow promises to be unusually attractive and delightful, and we have reason to think that it will be very largely attended. The laudable objects of this picnic appeal to the liber ality and encouragement of the public, and we trust that an appreciative re sponse, one commensurate with the menu or tne occasion, will be given by the people of this community. The gentlemen in charge of the arrange ments cf this picnic assure us that the most rigid observance of good order will be enforced, and that no improper char acters will be admitted to the grounds during the day or night. As a guarantee that these arrangements will be faithfully i uuiy iiecessarv to Dr. Frank Rice returned yesterday from a business visit among, the low lands of the Mississippi. Mr. Peter Tracy leaves the city to-day, for Cincinnati, on business con nected with his printing establishment. Major J. J. Murphy has arrived in the city from St. Louis. He has a host of friends, and they always see him with pleasure. Mr. E. T. Miller, a well-known planter aud popular citizen from Ken tucky Landing, Mississippi, is visiting the city as the guest of Captain J. M. Richardson. Captain Jambs M. Richardson re turned yesterday tom an extensive trip in the counties tit Washington and Bol ivar, Mississippi. Ha brings encourag ing reports of the crop prospects, aud informs us that the planters have good stands of cotton and corn. We learn that our esteemed fellow citizen, Rev. T. C. Tupper now rector of the church of the Good Shepherd in this city has been called by the vestrv of Christ church, at Little Rock, Arkan sas, to take cfiarge of that large and im portant parish. We believe that the congregation to which he is called con sists of about three hundred communi cants. We know not which to most congratulate, Mr. Tupper in receiving such a call, or the congregation in se curing the services of so worthy and ac complished a gentleman. Memphis, should he accept, will lose the services of one of her worthy ministers, though they will be in great part compensated by having him so near a neighbor and in so important a position. Mr. Tupper "is a young man of great promise, and, should he conclude to leave us, we can cheerfully say with a host of his friends here, God bless him and his in his new field of labor, and trust he may be the humble instrument in his Divine Mas ter's cause of uniting many souls with Christ. .

Section twelve reads: Every member of the police force is entitled to entertain his own political opinion, and to express the same freely when such expressions shall not concern the immediate discharge of his official duties; and his right to vote at all elections for such candidates as he may prefer will be deemed sacred and inviolate.

Seventh He is of good moral char acter and habits. About half-past ten o'clock yesterday morning two negro women, named Lou Christian and Lizzie Lyous.who resided in rear of the Gayoso house, had a diffi culty, which resulted In the fatal stab bing of the former. From what could be gained by our reporter, it appears that the two women had been friends aud lived in the same tenement house, but recently became estranged because of mutual jealousy respecting the atten tions of a negro acquaintance. Yester day morning the two women com menced quarreling in the back yard of the house, and entered the room of a ne gro woman living in an adjoining build ing. Owing to their disagreeable lan guage, she made them go out, and when the two reached the yard, Lou Christian cursed Lizzie Lyons and threatened to whip her. Thereupon Lizzie Lyons, with a drawn pocket-knife, rushed up on Lou Christian, and stabbed her twice In the breast. The keen knife-blade had penetrated fatally, and the blood leaped quickly from out the aperture, falling in a dark stream upon the pave ment where she was standing. Fully realizing her condition, but unable to articulate a word, the unfortunate woman vainly tried to stop the flowing blood with the skirts of her apron, which she pressed upon the wound. With a scream she ran through the house, pur sued ior a snort uistauce by Lizzie Ly ons, and quickly returning, staggered half the length of the hall and then fell lifeless at the feet of her as tonished murderess. Hardly think ing that she had slain her friend, Lizzie Lyons was unable at first to move, hut upou seeing the glazed eyes of the dead woman, lying bathed in blood, she turned away aud attempted to flee, but was seized and held by sev eral men until the arrival of the police, Into whose hands she was then placed. Dr. Lowry was summoned to the aid of the wounded woman, but life was al ready extinct. An examination of the fatal wound showed that the knife blade had penetrated the upper edge of the breastbone, cutting clear through the windpipe into the curve of the great artery. The blood-stained bodj of the murdered woman was placed iu the room which she had occupied, and thither collected a large crowd of ne groes, all curious and anxious to gaze upon the features of the dead. Owiig to the large crowd that gathered about the premises, it was necessary to have the door of the room locked aud guard ed by a policeman until the excitement BUbiuea. .Deputy Coroner Spelman be ing notified ot the murder, summoned a juiy who held an inquest and returned a verdict to the eilect that Lou Christian came to her death from a wound in flicted by Lizzie Lyons. After the in quest the body was washed and prepared for burial by the friends or the unfor tunate creature. The murderess is in jail awaiting indictment by the grand jury. STATEMENT OF LIZZIE LYONS. Lizzie Lyons states that Lou Christian had circulated false reports connecting her in a shameful manner with a certain white man (whose name we suppress), and that she yesterday informed htr that such were untrue and calculated to do harm. During this time she was sit ting in a chair, and no sooner had she desired Lou Christian to correct and also to discontinue the slanderous re ports, than she was assailed. A strug gle ensued, Lou Christian having hold of her shoulder and neck. In the effort to free herself from the grasp of her as sailant, a pocket-knife which she had in her hand pierced Lou Christian in tlie breast, with the results as above stated. DESPERATE EXCOUSJTEK. Grand Junction, Tenn., May 10, 1875. The board of commissioners of Bell county convened at this place, to-day, to compare the returns of the election, held on Saturday last, for tho establishment of Bell county. The original act of the lpgislature creating this county required the ''assent of two thirds of the voters in the area out of which it was to be formed." At the election in 1871 more than four-fifths of the vote polled was in favor of the new county, but upon injunction and appeal to the supreme court it was held "that two-thirds of the voting population must indorse the new county, without reference to the vote actually cast " Upon this decision the legislature im mediately pased an amendatory act granting power to tho commissioners to take a census of the legal voters in the proposed new county, and to hold another erection. This census was com pleted a short time since, and, upon due advertisement, the election was held, for the scond time, on last Saturday, with the following official result: Qualified voters in Fayette fraction, a-j per ceusu Constitutional majority of same. w holesaSe Grocers Vote on Saturday last: Lafayette...

For the convenience of the participators, omnibuses will run to the city after twelve o'clock. Streetcars will rnn till the close of the picnic. another" abrital About half past twelve o'clock this morning, Robert Goodman, negro, met a half-drunken white man on Beale etreet, near Second, aud was engaged to carry a can of coal-oil home for him, he stating that his residence was on Rob eson street. Soon after taking the can Goodman noticed two negro men, who followed him and the white stranger, some distance off, and when near DeSoto street closed upon them. One of the negroes drew a pistol and threatened to shoot the white man and Goodman, both of whom fled up Beale and thence down Second street. The white man sought safety from his pursuers by runninginto Bob Church's saloon, corner of Gayoso and Second, but Goodman continued his flight, and taking up Monroe street proceeded to Main, where he met Officers Allison and Hackett, whom he informed ol the attack. The officers, in company with Goodman, proceeded to the corner of Second and Gayoso streets, where the terrified negro caught eight of the two negroes from whom he had just fled, and exclaimed, "There they are there are the two men." Hardly had he uttered this remark of recogni tion ere the two negroes, who were not over sixty feet distant, drew their Cistols and fired five or six shots, the ullets whizzing near but fortunately missing the officers, who promptly re turned the fire. Hackett shooting twice and Allison once. Thereupon the un known negroes fled down Beale street, and finding that the officers were gain ing rapidly upon them escaped by dodg ing around tlie Baptist church. The coal-oil can which Goodman had was taken in possession by the polico and left in a store at the corner of Main and Gayoso streets for future reference. Vicksburg, May 12. River rose 1 inch.

STRAWBERRIES! STRAWBERBIES ! I Stubborn Pacts. Editors Appeal It has been stated in connection with the appointment of Mr. M'Mahon as captain of steamer No. 4, that Mr. Foley was nshered in at the death of Captain Stokes in conse quence of his being a "pet" of the mayor. Now at the time Mr.Foley was elected it was as strongly asserted by the same paper that Mr. John Sullivan was the "pet" of the mayor. The facts are that Mr.Foloy was olootodby theeeneral council almost unanimously. The ballot showing seventeen for Foley against lhroafn.MIUol.nr. AT- T?l,. 1... . 1 1 as much experience as a fireman us Mr. I MONUMENTAL FUND. M'Mahnn.nnrl linn vpr tirnvoil nn ofHni. ent and able officer. When the yellow fever was raging in our city Mr. M' Mahon was pipe-director, but thinking more of M'Mahon than he did of the responsible trust reposed iu him, he abandoned his post and went to the then healthy climes of Minnesota, leav ing the pipes to take care of themselves, and the city, if needs be, to hunt some one else to extinguish the flames, which were at any moment subject to break out. For this he was discharged by ex Mayor Johnson, and mention made of his conduct to the general council. While Captain Foley feeling the neces sity of the department, remained true to his calling, and suffered the loss of his own wife, leaving four helpless children. I only say this in justice to Mr. Foley, who has been a resident of Memphis for twenty-five years, aud has always borne the name of a good, honorable and honest citizen, and has always acted well his part as a city official.
