The Franciscan fithers havo beari tifled tlieir iipw nnd handsome little ohai?l adjoining St. Mart's (German Catholic) church in a way that must strike every beholder as in keep'ug wi,h Uie holy season which the church this week commemorates, The altar is most richly adorned and brilliantly lighted, the tnumlle being of a (striking charao ter, and yet appropriate to Lent. All tint iijwere nnd '-llgbtj well bestowed" can effect Is accomplished with au ar tistic taste that leaves nothing to be de tired on the pait of the devout. The Somervillo Fhlcon, cf last week, contains particulars oi a disas trous Are which occurred in that place on the night of "Wednesday, the fifth inf-Unt, involving an estimated loss of eleven thousand dollars. Tho fire is fcupposed to have been tho work of in cendiaries. Builders of houses fronting imme diately on the Sidewalk should make provisions for pedestrians to piss the Io calitv When the sidewalk is taken up with" the building material. A portion of rialu street near the Mississippi and Tennessee depot is almost entirely ini piesable became of the building going on there. It is fortunate for all concerned that street-car mules possess tho faculty of breathing through their ears, and are otherwise amphibious, or Umt lake created on the line near the Mississippi and TenneiH?e depot by the recent grad ing of Main street could never be navi gated by street-cara. Much mora rain, and street-car passengers will have to hold up their dretses when passing that submerged locality. We learn from Mrs. Bernard that, in response to the continual cry from the public for something new in the opera line, b!jo made Up her reper toire for the present season of operas of that character, some or wnicn were written expressly for Mrs. Ber nard. Though these have received the most favorable comment from exacting critics, yet she is not satisfied with the result, and has already arranged for a southern tour, with a strong company, next season, beginning in November at Nashville, then Memphis, for which her repertoire is made up from the old operas. The merchants of Bomervillo pub lish a card in the Folcon denying in emphatic terms the iusiuua'iona that they were privy to or implicated in any way in the recent outrsces committed upon tho Hirsch brothers, of which a un account was printed in tne appeal The protest is etened by js.ee t. jj dick inson, C.

A couple of billygoats entered the ring in a war oi extermination on tne corner of Madison and DeHoto streets, yesterday afternoon. One of them is on his native heath, and has flaxed every' thing of the goat persuasion in that sec tion of the city. Tne other one belongs to a little nitr. livintr in south Memphis, and was imported to the locality men tioned ye ,terday under tho impreeFion that he could get away with the one that has so long enjoyed the glories of "Iho cock or tne walir." A large crowd of people were attracted by the goat- light, which closed about dars in a drawn battle. Bets ran high, and so much inteiest was manifested that it is probable the fight will be resumed to day. PERSONAL.

The elements seem to havo arrayed tnemseives against tho only opera sea son Memphis tiieater-patronsaud lovers or good music have Had the opportunity to enjoy. Yet the Caroline liiciiingd Bernard productions are so entirely new m plot and character, so rich and racy with rare musical gems and roaring comedy that good and intelligent audi- encea bravo the stoini nightly to par take of the intellc2tual feast. L3st night's attendance, on the second pre sentation of the brilliant opera entitled L.zuy, was, considering the moat threat ening aspect of the weather, quite com plimentary to Mrs. Bernard and her ex cellent company. Zctfy, a? produced last night, was a decided improvement on the performance Monday night, par ticularly in the working or the scenery. And we may he pardoned lor saying as ino irishman said about his now boots. that he wou'd have to wear them a day or two heiore ne could get them on that these operas must be seen a second time to be appreciated. This was the expressed sentiment of many present last night who witnessed the same opera Monday evening. Bo it will be to-night with tne second presentation of the charming comic opera, La Hrasseur, or mc Jirewer oj jvesion, which so delight ed the audienca of Wednesday night, This evenipg also being tho occasion of rare, usrnaro's benent, tho beneliciary having always held a high place in the esteem of Memphians, will assure a crowded house.

BivER Editor Appeal I notice that tho Idlewild and Illinois have been making another test of speed, in which the former steamer claims to have "passed the latter under way." The commanders of both these steamers I hold in the highest esteem in fact, 1 always give my ousiness to the ono in port at the time I want steamboat ser vice, but in view of the request made by tho planters below here, throuah CaD- tain Ed. Thomas, the Idlewild's accom modating first clerk, I think both these packets should forego the pleasure en joyed in racing their boats, wheu tho heavy waves made threaten the weak levees with destruction, and the over 11 jw of a vast area of valuable farms now nearly ready to receive the seeds.

Tilts Nllnby Itotnry Declared llic Sil pcrior Engl"'-, ''' So Recom mended to the Council. The test of the lire steaaiari yesterday morning did not ret,ti;t as happily as was at-ticlpated. Both engines suc cumbed to the severity 9 the ret made. The experiment wa3 mad in the pres ence of the committee of the general council, consisting of Aldermen Dant and Cochran, and C.iuoc.lmen Dmovan, Morrison and Weller, wno concluded to appoint a sub c mmitteo of practical engineer and machinist", to mako tho test, so that it would be done ia a scien tific manner. The ?ub-cnmmittee ap pointed consisted of John ftaudlo, chair man; Messrs. W. A. Robinson, Cleorre M'Cormack. "William Albert, JsniMJ Clarko and John H. Diets. Thesa p ac tioal mecbauics took chargo of tho tesf. The KUsby rotary ( Washington No. 4) was worked by Captain John M'Mahau, Engineer James Dolan, and Fireman Mike Hart; while tho Ahrens-Litta (DeSo'o No. 3) was in charge of Captain James Cleary, Eugineer Pit PheJan and Fireman S. Smith. Both enginto worked well up to the timo of breaking down, each being in perfect order, the boys having fixed up their respective eDginesin a c)ndition well calculated to make the best possitle test. The pride and rivalry that exiats in the lire depart ment speaks well for its efficiency and ability, which has been brought to al most psifejtioa under the able manage ment of the chief, Mike M'Fadden. The following is the report of the committee: TEST OF STEAM FIRE ENGINES. The fixe committee of the general council recommended the purchase of two new fire engines to take the place of the present engines Nob. 1 and 2. Propositions were submitted to them by the builders of the celebrated and well known Silsby rotary patent and the Ahrens piston patent engines. Tho cost of ea3h wss the same, but tho Sils by proposition as to prico allowed for old engines, terms and conditions were deemed most favorable to the city. With the view and for the purpose of testing tho meriis of tho respective en gines, and in cousidsiation of the mat ter a special commiitee;was appointed by the general council, composed of Moure. Dent, Cochrane, Donovan, Weller and Morrison. This committee caused the Bilsby and Ahrens engines to meet at ten o'clock yesterday morning at the corner of Washington and Second streets, for the purpose of having a fir test of their respective merits. Tho committee, not being experts, cailed on a number of well-known practical me chanics and engineers to supervise and direct the mode and manner in which the tests should be made, and after a fair and impartial trial submitted the following as their report to tho spacial committee of tho general council: REPORT. At a meeting of citizens for the pur pose of testing tho dualities of the Sits by rotary firG-engino, and the Ahrens piston engine, Mr. Henry ti. Djnt in the chair, the following gontlemen me chanics were appointed a committed on tests: John E. Kauule, cnairmv.i Messr?. George M'Cormick and Wm Albert were placed m charge of engine Nos. 3 and 4; Wm. A. RoliiU3on and John H. Deets on pressure (steam and water) and after wltnesung the tests we sutmit the detail of our observations of time and pressure, as per memoran dum appended. We, the undersigned mechanics and engineers, after looking over the reports 01 the sub-commiitc3on steam anu wa ter pressure, carefully, believe theSils by engine capable of throwing more water under a less steam pressure than the Ahrens engine. Therefore we re commend the Silsby eDgtne, with tho improved Theater! to your honorable body, as the be?t engine for extinguish ing lirea and loss liable to get out of or der. JOHN E. HANDLE, Chairman of Committee, AVM. A ROBltiSON, AVM. ALBSRT, GEO. W. M'CORMICK, JOHN II. DEETS. J. It. CLARK, Secretary. Whereupon the committee of the gen eral council unanimously adopted the report of the said mechanics and en gineers. and. resolved to recommend to the geneial council tho purchase 01 two new Silsby rotary engines, on tho terms and conditions propotod by the Silsby manufacturing company. The splendid condition of too trial engines, and tne admirable manner in which tho test was conducted by our worthy and efficient chief ("M'Fadden) and his subordinates. merit the approval of the committee and public. WEST TENNESSEE UKIVJEK EITY. I'Jrst Examination of the ftltiddits of the Colored University at 1'ca body lliglits. Interest Manifested by the AVIiltc CilJ zeiis Education the One Thing Needed by tlie Nejrro Baec. From an Occasional Correspondent of tho Appeal. 1 Peabody Hights, Shelby Co. April 10. Feeling assured that you are now, as you nave always oeen, a inond to the cause of popular education witl the colored people, I venture to csk some space to speak of this institution it has been chartered by the State legis lature, and its supporters are sanguine of its success. The nr3t session closed on last Fridav. nndnr tho Piinervi.sinn ni President H. JN. Rankin. The day was clear and beautiful, and the rmtlirg winds waved the branches of the stately forest trees, as it to maKo obeisance to the honoro of the occasion. Tho exer cises woie opened in tho morning by xtev. a. jjaiiey, or jsiemphts. roe hoard or trustees, district directors. Lr. ti. L Kams and Tor. it. T. ioiiara wero among those present, together with other intlaential gentlemen, to witness the exercises. Dr. Rains and Prof. Pol lard, being known to possess high lit erary attainments, were requested to examine tho classes. Alter hear ing thosa gentlemen express them seivep, feel iree to say mat, con- eicenng that this is the first ses slon of the school, tho'puplia will com pare favorably with those oi any simi lar institution in the land. Afcer four hours of severe test from the lowest to the hlgh3t branches, all were willing to admit it a success, and that President xianEin has fully sustained himself and came off master of his situation. After these exercises, special committees an nounned thrnnoh tho nr-.aMnr. that " dinner" was ready spresd on the cam pua for the accommodation of all nres oni. we were surprised to nee the tables they seemed literally to ba groauiur unner tneir nuruen or "good things." It was indeed a sumptuous' repast gocd enough for a king (if a king deserves better than others). Dinner over, the evening exercises began with declama tions, dialogues, colloquies, and closed with an excellent concert. President Rankin realiy deserves success, whether he can command it or not. He is quito a pleasant, genial gentleman. He is a native or iventucKv, but wa never en slaved. He studied at Oberlin universi ty, Ohio, and has devoted the greater part of his life to teaching, and now has undertaken the most praiseworthy work of his life, "founding a uni versity for tho colored people of bis adopted State, Tennessee." We have often heard the question mooted as to wnetner or not the colored ov or cirl could be educated scientifically. In answer to auoh a question, we would say that, under the superintendence of such a echool aa this ope, he can be educated highly, both morally and mentftiiv. Sume havo been dou'. ting a3 to its suc cess, but the most bittor opponents are now fastJetline go prejudice and exDreua themselves that they aro- willtncr to ren der wnatever aid inev can. An manv north still think that the colored man UBS uu cuuuanou HOIHII, WJ make a little quota foh from Present ilanKin: "ne wished some ct in old friends at Oberlin could have witnessed that day'a proceedings and seen the in- terest manifested by comet of the bsat aLd wejtl'h'es!; white citizms of the c mntry " Such beirg the C3se, we feel fuily assured thtt ti e old feeling be tween the races is forever buritd. We have Carefully stii lid the ethLd'of y of the rsct8, and fit.d that he Is entitled to the respect and cocsideia'ion of the gente fina of this or any other land. When the plattic ham! of Omniscience completed its work, and pronounced atl well, the colored man was finished as well as the wbltei and from thatdf-y has been tilling his m'Ssion even to the present, not to be scoffed and doggtd at as lie ones was. Through the reports to bo obtained from ditlerent institutions of learning, in the south as well as the north, the mcst skeptical are beginning to 820 and feel that there is tut one way to make a citizen of any tribe, class or nation, and that is to educate them. Tho recent political changes that have taken plac3 south, we- allege, are in consequence of enlightenment, as we do know that both parties haVo taken (he cilored men from the plow-handles and placed them In the halls of legislation.

The producer of tha premium bale Mr vvm. Taylor, no doubt meets his re ward in the sueces3 which attended his entiy, yet the board deem it proper to extend him and the other competitors tho thanks of the exchange for the on tsrpiise and experienced handling which has placed at their disposal a bale of cotton which has no superior, possibly no equal, and which we believe will hold its own against any and ail com peting ba:e3 that may bo offered at th American centennial.

JN, Brown, who is now a member of the board of aldermen, and who is reported to be ineligible, on account of his being a member of a commercial firm who have for the Istt five years rented cflice3 to the police department of this city. It was moved by J. T. Hillsman, that a commitieo 01 three 03 appointed draw up resolutions to express the sense or this meeting. The following committee was appoint ed:J T. Hi.'liman, D. P. Hadden and W. B. Mallory; and upon motion Judge Latham, the chairman was added to the committee, and the following resolution was adopted unanimously: Whereas, We havo read in the daily papers or April l-th that a communlca lion was read t5 the board ofaldermeu, in regular session, charging that w. JM, Brown, alderman from the seventh ward, could not legally hold his seat by reason or a lease of a suit of rooms from Jones. Br-jwn & Co., to the board of p lico and lire commissioners; and a committee has been appointed by the board to investigate the facts and ascer tain whether' euch charge comes undei that clause in the charter which prohibits any member of the gen eral council irom being interested in any contract with, tho city; and whereas, it appears to us a very strained construction of the law to admit even a reasonable doubt as to the eligibility of Mr. W. N. Brown to his seat: and whereas, Mr. W. N. Brown, together with other geo.i members or the general council, has shown great zeal In scrutiu- izing accounts presented to tho boa:d for payment, and has worked unrelent ingly to oppose every scheme of extrava gance gotten up to filch money from tho har-l-worKing tax-payers 01 Memphis; tnereiore Ilescved, That in the opinion of the people hero assembled, this attempt to unseat W. N. Brown is a covert attack by a ring, cuteido of the board, unon goou governn.ent fur our city. Ileaolved, That wo givo to W.
