Attorneys are re quested to bring in at once the papers in tne cases of Green versus Lake and Jones versus Juniper. A poisoned dog, left to die in the gutter, corner of Madison and Second streets, attracted quite a crowd yester day afternoon and aroused sympathy.

There ia now on rehearsal a cantata by Thomas, for the picnic under the leadership of Mrs. J. A. "Werlos, which will be rendered in a short time; also a grand conceit, vocal and instrumental, by amateur juveniles, assisted by adnlt musicians of note. The concerts aro for the benefit of Immanuel Episcopal church, Rev. Geo. H. Jackson, rector. They desire a liberal patronage of the public, as the church is much in need of Help. The attention of the brethren of tho press, especially of Arkansas, and of the police and other authorities, is called to the following: Bruce Brown, a young lad of fifteen years of age, and rather small of stature for his age, left his home at Collierville, In this State, a few days ago, without bla mother' consent and has not since been heard of. It is sup posed that he will attempt to reach tbe residence of an aunt (Mr?. Ran dall), In Prairie county, Arkansas. Any one who can furnish to the Appeal in formation of his whereabouts will con fer upon bis mother, whose anxieties and anguish upon the loss of her child are extreme. We shall be bappy to be the media of communication between the mother and her truant son. PERSONAL. Mayor Fltppin and Councilman Don ovan leave to-night for White Cliff Springs, East Tennessee.

A Colored 3Ian Named Bizzell Kills Co lumbus Stewnrt,Colorcdia Friend of the Notorious 3Iary Burton. Arrest of tho Murderer His Statement lie Itcirrets the Awful Crime The Inquest and the Evi denceEtc. Between four and five o'clock yester day afternoon Sam Bizzell, the well known colored barber, whose shop is at No. S76 Second street, shot and killed another colored man named Columbus C. Stewart, who resided on the south side of Calhoun street, east of DeSoto, The trseedy occurred at the corner of Second and uayoso streets, anu jbizzsii, being arrested, was visited at the Aaame- street stationhcuse by an appeal re- nnrter. to whom he made a statement as to the difficulty, which, in eub3tance, is as follows: Yesterday afternoon Stewart visited bla barber-shop and stated that he had to help Bizzell to eupport his family. Stewart also made use of lan guage regarding Bizzell's wife, and was ordered ny tne latter to leave uia Buuy, Rizzell went into the back of his ehop and, upon returning, found Stewart still talkinz uuon the subiect in front of his establishment. Stewart defied him to do anvthinir. and Bizzell walked down to the corner, where ho was followed by Stewart, who went there to pay a man s9venty-fivo ceuts for hauling a load of wood, while stanuing mere otewart drew a large buck-handle knife and rushed upon Bizzell, who at first shoved him ofl, and as the assailant started toward him again, draw a Smith & Wesson revolver and nreu. aoia Bhotu took effect, ono in the neck and tho other in the left temple of Stewart, who ran obliquely acro3s the street for a distance of fifty yards and fell a corpse on the pavement In Iront of Wallace & Co.'s carriage shop. Bizz 11 fled,and being pursued, was not overtaken until he had reached Vance street, near St. Agnes academy. He regre's the deed, and says he wai actuated by motives oi self-preservation, and wants only a fair state ment and an impartial trial. This is in substance his statement, but thtro are other accounts of the tragedy, the most reliable of which is that Stew art, while partially intoxcated, vis ited Mr. Bizzell's shop yesterday afternoon and wanted to ronew a diffi culty which they had some time ago in relation to the latter'a wife, whom he (Stewart) compared to Mary Burton, and said that upon tbe score of virtue she was inst a3 baJ. This irritated Biz zell. who ordered him to leave, but Stewart repeated bis remarks and also had something to say about politics and the election to day. He continued to indulge in indecent language and to provoke Bizzell. who finally struck him in the mouth with a pistol. Thereupon B ewart drew a knife aud iU3hed upon Bizzell. who fired twice, and with the result already known. an inquest was hold by Esquire Elliott, who jum raoncd as a iurv Meesra. H. Morrifs, L, J. Hanson, L. Solari, A. Mills, Charles Gallini. R. H. Offert and L. M. Dean, Several witnesses were examined, but none of them could relate anything a3 to the cause of the difflculty, or even the expressions that provi ked the first blow, which all the witnesses stated was given by B'zzrll. The testimony before the inrv of inauest. in substance, was that the two had beBn quarreling half an hour before tho shooting took place, but no one was able to give the least idea of the nature of their trouble. Those who saw the shooting say that Bizzell struck Stewart the fi:st blow, and held him off wllh his left hand; while he drew his pistol with the right hand. Same sav that Bizzell struck Stewart a blow with the pistol, which caused mm to turn away as li to leave ms assailant, when Bizzell fired the first shot, and which ia supposed to have been the one through the brain, which caused the man's death. After the first shot was fired Stewart did not show auy sign of having been struck by tho ball, but changed his course down ercond street toward wai laco & Co.'s carriage shop. When ho bad got about twenty steps from Bizzell the latter stepped forward a few feet, taking deliberate aim and fired, this time httting Stewart in the shoulder. The jury adjourned from where the dead boay lay over to the barber-shop, of which Bizzell i9 proprietor, and tried to elicit from the employes there what they knew about tho fl?ht, but they were as dumb as sticks one made it convenient I to be asleep while all this half-hour's quarrel was going on in ten feet of the door, which at r cted the attention of people blocks distant. Another one of the employes heard the quarreling, but could not say what they were quarrel ing about. When asked if the two men had ever bad any difficulty, hesaid they had never quarreled about the shop, and he had never heard that there was any feeling between them. Dr. G. W. Gor don examined the dead hody and dis covered that one ball had entered the left ternrle and paesed through the base of the brain, which wa? sufficient to cause death in a few secoctU. He did not consider it necessary to make fur ther examination. Tho jury returned a verdict that Columbus C. Stewart, col ore1, came to hia death by a gunshot wound inflicted by Simuel B zzU, col ored, in accordauco with the facts given in eutstanco above. outside talk. From the statements of several per sons outside, who were not before the jury of iuqce3t, It is very evident that thisdiiliculty grew out o! the recantraid on thsnegrees Mary Burton. Stewart was outspoben in his denunciation of the action of the mob, who uumercifuliy dragged the girl from the house in which she had taken refuge, and thrust her into the stationhousa. Stewart said that he would glvo the proceeds of a week's labor toward prosecuting those engaged in it. We wc-re informed that it was about this that the quarrel besau yester day. A negro woman, occupying one of tho shanties south of Bob Church's saloon, ran out, when the tiring began, and cried out: "Dar, now; dem fellers is been quarreling about dat Mary Bur ton; and now dey's gono and killed de'selves." COLUMBUS C. STEWART, the victim, wa3 a native of Columbus, Ohio, and was a brother-in-law of J. A. Thompson, the colored justice of the peace of this city. Ho came to this city a few years ago, finding employment first in the house of L. M. Dia-i & Co., and after ward with Jcsaph T.tg0. i he wall-paper dealer. Stewart v.aa a painter and paper-hanger, skilled in his profession. Mr. Daan, of tho first named firm, stated to this reporter yesterday that Stewart was a quiet, peaceable man, in dustrious, sober, attentive to his busi ness, and had won the confidence of all who knew him. In this connection we will state that Bob Church, who owns the saloon adjoining Bizzeil'a barber shop, whera the fuss begun, says that Stewart had been doing some work for him (Church), aud a balance was due him on settlement, and he thinks that Stewart had called at his (Church's) saloon yesterday to receive the balance due him. SAM BIZZELL, tho ehootist, id also a native of Ohio, hailing from Ripley, In that State. He rented the barber-shop next door to Church's saloon, which is patronized solely by colored people. Bizzell is re ported to ba a troublesome neighbor, Church having on more than one occa sion had to make complaint about the disc rdorly conduct of Bizzell and his employes. Although hia name does not appear among those who made the raid on Mary Burton, yet he Is said to have sympathized with the movement. This matter and the story about Bizzell's wif, it appeals, was the cause of the difficulty which resulted in the bloody homicide yesterday. AERE3TED. Bizzell, after the shooting, Jumped over a high fence immediately south of AUGUST 3,lg?6 his barber-sbop, and tried to make his escape toward tue eastern limits in me city, in- by the aid of a little shaver about thirteen years oli1, named Freddy O'Netto, i'ollcemsn sweeny wa3enaoieu toovfithnul him on Lauderdale street, near Vance, theltttloboy following c!o e on the fugitive and signaling the police man until the capture was tiiscteu.
