Notwithstanding the heavy rain which drenched the streets at the hour for opening the Theater last night, that Dunaing was cnucK iuu, wim an audi enco composed of the intelligence and respectability of Memphis society, who gave the most appreciative attention to the great humorist. Josh Billings, it is Eumcient to eay, Kept nis audience in a roar o" laughter from the opening to the close of bis lecture. His efforts last night seemed to be mainly directed against the cockroach, mothers in law, nis, nice young meo( cater pniars, neas, poodles, eto., and was particularly bent on dropping the seeds oi gooo auvice to rona motners as to bow to raise boys. The show opened with a few arias on the Scotch bagpipes, a new wrinkle in the orchestral depart ment, which elicited storms of applause. Those who failed to hear the inimitable fun-maker and only Josh Billing?, will have an opportunity at the matinee this afternoon. The IMcblncs-Bcrnard Opera Company. While Manager Joe Brooks, of the Memphis Theater, was in Louisvi'le on his tour arranging for tbe next season's attractions, he received the following dispatch from Lessee T. W. Davey, by which we are informed that the Caro line Etchings-Bernard opera company will play a wfeak'a engagement at the Theater in this city, beginning Monday evening, April 10th: Dethoit, March 30, 1876. To Joseph Brooks, Louisville Hotel, Louis ville, Kentucky: Have arranged for a week of English opera in Memphis by the Caroline Eichlngs-Bernard opera company. They commence Monday evening, April 20th, and produce three entirely new operas during the engagement. t. w. DAVEY. The Sunday Nleut Concert. The first of a series of Sunday night concerts will be given at the Theater to morrow night, when the following pro gramme will be interpreted by Arnold's string band and his braes and reed band, and Mr. Trauner, Mr. Emil Levy and Mr. Bornemann: PART l.

Bornemann. ono. Tancrodi... ... Rossini Through the kindness of Superintend ent Pickett, and the principal, teachers and pupils of Market street echcol, the Appeal's man of letters yester day enjoyed the eeeond series of exer cises by the "first year class," of which Miss Mary Knnkle is teacher, and the "third year class," of which Br. Hunt er la teacher. A number of the friend? of our. public schools were preieht, anrl he&Hily expressed their de light at the very creditable manner 'n which the young ladies and gentlemen pupils of the classes mentioned acquitted themselves. Our learned repteaentatlve finds it difficult to make special mention where all did bo well and hopes that ha will be indulged in speaking particu larly of special features of tb& programme. The gems at thb o6 fasion wfero the dialogues, "The Hoyden," participated in by Mioses Lilly Thrall, Mamie Lopez, Lucille Gal laway, and Florence Acree: and " Mrp. Vatican Smythet'd Party,'' by Misses Mary Gallaway, Sotihie Uuefrant, Wil lie Clark, Moille Winchester, Pannie Sandeford, and KatieBitchie. Theflrst of these was a very cleverly conceived school play, in which the "leading roles" were excellently sustained by Mieses Lilly Thrall and Mamie Lopes, tbe first ropresfintingo hoydeniflh schdol girl, wbary of echpol discipline and short-dresses, rind dead gone on the charming yodng ecap'egraOa "George," (Miss Lopez.) Both these characters called for a high order of dramatic tal ent, which was cleverly developed In the voung ladles to whoni they were cast. Th) second, "Mrs: Smythei's Party," was equally Creditably perform ed; the leading role, "Old Aunt Betsy," by Miss Mary Gallaway, "brought down the house" every time the old lady got off one of her quaint but honest expres sions. Miss Gallaway dressed and looked the character like thegopd'heart ed, gecBrotis old ebul '01d Aunt Betsy," was in the play, and with her specs and dld-fashloned ways gave an,eicellent Interpretation of'a Very difficult Character. Th6 other characters of these, as well as all tbe other dialogues, were well done, and re flected much credit on the young ladies and gentlemen. The entire programme, which we append, was well rendered in everv Darticular. esneniallv thn sincinc. the finale being the very touching song by Miss Lucille Gallaway, entitled "No- Douy's uarung," so feelingly tendered that tears of sympathy dimmed the eye of nearly all present.

This institution, is, we are happy to say, in a flourishing condition. As the time for monthly collections is at hand we are reminded of a little joko: The knight or tho black-book presented his bill; party couldn't pay. "Weil, when can you pay; I want a positive answer?" "Da yon take me for a prophet? How can I tell?" During the exercises at the Market Etreet school yesterday one of the pupils cruelly criticised the efforts of one of the declalmera in the following: ' . stormed at with hiss and yell. Badly spoke and, unwell, Oft from the plstform fell Fell on Mrs. Crockett's bell." The German casino will repeat the German opera, eo well rendered at the Greenlaw Operahouse recently, next Wednesday evening for the benefit of iror. tscnuitz. Arnold's band, together with the leading professionals and ama teurs of the city, will contribute their services. The publishers, John. F.

Abcuc three years ago two German boys established themselves in the place in some mercantile capacity, and, through energy and thrift, succeeded In acquir ing some twenty thousand dollars worth cf property. It seems they have always e'ondncled themselves creditably, and have none c.6 act whereby to Incur the 511-wiJl of any class. Abotlt two O'clock Thursday morning the rear door of their store was burst open, and a party of then (fifteen In number) entered. The young Germans slept In this part of the house; and upon awakening at this noise, made it .strong resist ance to the uieD, wlio were most ciu lly beating them with large) stick. Their dog shared an even worse fate, bsing shot dead by one of tbe party. The young men were finally overpowered, and ropes were placed arotiud their heckS, and in a bmlsed and bea'en condition l!iey were dragged something like a quarter of & mile through the Btreels, when they were re leased with tbe threat if they remained in the town another night they should be killed. The young men returned to their iHorrj to find themselves robbed of some nineteen hundred dollars, and to bruised and battered that severe illness will frrcbably follow. AH of this oc curred on the public square at Somer ville, and we can but wondef at tli4 boldness of tho perpetrators, who wero all en masque. The young Germans say they fecogulied some of the party, and can identify them. The citizens, justly indignant, held a meeting, and after se verely condemning the maskers re solved themselves Into a committee of the whole to as3ure protection to the Germans and to ferret out tho authors of tbe shocking crime. We learn the above facts from a gentleman who was in the town on the night of the occur' rence. Our Specialties.
