LEON THOloUALA, State SuperlntendenL MAXXIX 31 UK DEB CASE. The Aeensed Admitted to Ball in the Ham of Ten Thousand Doll r'nll statement of the Facta of the Tragedy. Why the Hherlfr Concealed His Crime rhe Hhootlns the Result of Jealousy, Occasioned by Mrs. Mannlns's Intimacy with Harvey. This case, which has created bo much ex citement in Austin, Mississippi, was satisfac torily determined on the twenty-eighth ulti mo by the admission to bail of Captain M. J. Manning and the other parties accused oi tne murder of James B. Harvey. The whole case was thoroughly investigated before J. G. Gal lagher, f.sq., on tne committing inai oi ai. J. Manning, and it was shown that the de ceased was an old lover of Mrs. Manning's; that they were engaged before her first mar , . . i i i1 1 i - i riagv, ana max sne aiu not, marry mm uecause they were both poor. She went to the Cen tennial, and while on her trip sought out Harvey at Chicago, and brought him to Mem phis. They went together from Memphis to Austin on the steamer Vhite, where unmis takable evidence of intimacy was established. Thev arranged that he should write her a let ter, claiming to be her step-brother, addressed to her by her first husband's name, and in quiring after her as if they had met since the war. This letter was sent under cover to the postmaster at Austin, with the request that it be aeuverea to Airs, runaway n uving there still. It was delivered by the postmas ter to an old negro, Wash Christian, who at once delivered it to Mrs. Manning. Captain Manning was not then at home, and she gave the letter back to Wash, with instructions to bring it to her again when the captain re turned, and deliver it to her in his presence. This was done, and the captain thus-beguiled into permitting Harvey to be invited to his house. The declaration of Mrs. Manning that she loved Harvey s little hnger better than Manmnz 8 whole body, and declarations go ing to show that there was a preconc rted plot to kill Manning was testified to by Miss Rea gan, the niece ot Airs. Manning, who had accompanied her on the Cen tennial trip, and who divulged ev erything to Captain Manning on the night that Harvey was expected down on the boat. Manning met Harvey and killed him as soon as he was pointed out to him. It also appeared m the evidence that Mannincr start ed to arouse the mayor of the town and sur render himself, but was prevented from doing so by Dr. Chapman, whose wife is the niece of Mrs. Manning, and who begged that he would not bring out the disgrace ot the fam ily unm ne was compelled to do so. Man ning was told, both by Dr. Chapman and M. Reagan, that Harvey was a dangerous man, who would loll him. me justice granted bail to Captain Manning in the sum af ten thousand dollars, and Judge Powell sustained the judgment of the justice and granted bail on habeas corpus to Chapman and others, who had been committed to jail witnout tiau as accessories rjeiore ana alter the facts. The defendants were represented by General Chalmers, who was ablv assisted by Hon. S. B. Morgan, of DeSoto. The com munity has been greatly aroused on account of the concealment of the fact of the killing, but all who heard the testimony were satis fied that Manning was justified in the killing and only censurable because he did not own the act and the cause. PEBSONAL. Mr. John H. Shelton. of Clarksville. is in the city. - Major Gus A. Henry. Jr.. and wife, of Alabama, are in the city. Mrs. Clemons, of Louisville, accompanied by her son and daughter, Miss Fannie Clem ons, is visiting her aunt in this city. The Water Valley Courier, of Saturday, announces that on and after yesterdiy, the first instant, ueneral ti. if. Weely, ot Uolivar, Tennessee, assumes control as receiver of the line of railroad extending from Canton, Mis sissippi, to Cairo, Illinois, it being the Missis sippi Central and its extension from Jackson, Tennessee, to Cairo. Tho office of the re ceiver, and general offices of the line will be at Bolivar, Tennessee. Mr. Clark, who is general manager of the Illinois Central, will be general manager also of this road, as well as the division irom Canton to JSew Orleans Mr. R. L. Walker, of Bolivar, is treasurer and paymaster of this part of the line, and Mr. R. S. Stedman auditor, with their offices at Bolivar. The train or running divisions of the line will be most probablv arrantred as they used to be, viz., from Water Valley to Jackson, Tennessee, and from Jackson to Cairo. The Reasonover-Ellis murder case, which has been on trial for nearlv three weeks in the criminal court, has awakened our deep st attention, lo show the able conduct of the case, we have only to state that Generals Wright and Horrigan led the prosecution and Messrs. Uiintt and uovernor Harris the de fense. Among the able lawyers who ad dressed the jury was Mr. D. S. Ross, the vouneest but not least brilliant. Mr. Ross. who has been in this city only two years, has shown decided talent in all the instances in which he appeared before the public. Mr. Ross, after having graduated in one of the eastern universities, traveled several years in Europe, studied abroad the character of those nations which furnish the largest number of adopted citizens to our Kepublic, and also mastered the German and French languages. His address to the jury showed talent and ex perience beyond his years. Begular Secretion Essential to euiui. The reiruiar secretion and flow of the gas- trio juices, and of the bile which the use of Hostetter's stomach bitters promotes, are ef fects which conduce materially to the restora tion of health, when the system is disordered Food is not digested in the dyspeptic stomach necause me gastric juice is aencient, supera bundant or vitiated; the liver becomes con gested and the bowels constipated because the supply ot bile is inadequate or misdirected. The bitters rectifies all this and removes every ill consequence of non-assimilation and bilious irregularity. Furthermore, it stimulates the action of the kidneys, by which impurities are, so to speak, strained from the blood, and any tendency hi the urinary organs to grow sluggish and disordered counteracted Whether it be used as a means of regulating gastric or bilious secretion, and relieving the overloaded bowels, or to promote complete, and therefore healthful urination, Hostetter's bitters may be relied upon with confidence to accomplish the end in view.

Its advent was amid an unusually deep snow, such, indeed, as was never known heretofore in Memphis. The snow is at least twelve mches deep, and affords the best sleighing ever allowed in this city. The snow fell first over a week ago, and since that time the white mantle has been thickened by re peated additions. About two o'clock Thurs day afternoon it began to snow, and continued all night, with a strong northwesterly wind. During that night the snow tell to a depth of several inches, and next morning the fleecy visitor continued to make itself known. About dark Sunday there was another snow-fall, which continued until two or three o'clock Monday morn ing. The weather , in the mean time had been cloudy and gloomy, and it was indeed a source of true cheer to see the golden sunbeams resting upon the pure white mantling of New Year s 1877. As the sun arose its bright rays shot through the wintry clouds, and, as if fascinated by the icy beauty of the frozen heavens, seemed to rest awhile upon the snowy couch all glittering with frnges of icicles. But this was only for a short while. The sun gleamed brightly enough, and under its intense radiance the icicle and snowy carpeting alike soon melted. never more to be seen until the return of another very severe winter. The effect of this has been to demoralize the streets, and render the sidewalks wet, disagreeable and slip pery. This, however, has not dimin ished the interest in sleighing. All day Sunday, Sunday night and Monday the tinkling of the sleigh-bell was to be heard. Truly can it be said that Memphis has become crazv upon the subiect of ice. snow and sliding. Every buggy, wagon ind other vehicle to be had was converted into a sieign, the principal runners being made of gas pipes. The evident delight of the sleighers was not onlv lau&rhable. but quite often ridic ulous. It was, to the great majority of the people, something novel and strange, and nence fascinating. It is useless to say that this Christmas has been one ot unusual en iovment and eenuine mirth to our people. While it is true that money has been, and is yet scarce, still there were natural enjoyments which afforded our people great pleasure. 1 he present snow is the deepest that ever fell in this locality. Of course you always find some quasi superanuated indi vidual who says that he knew when there was a heavier rain, a tieeper snow, a colder day, a longer drouth or a severer storm. Great things have doubtless occurred, or, rather, "happened," in the past, and it is hardjy to be expected that old age, with the inspiration of ita long cherished associations and fond memories, should not be inclined to speak lightly and somewhat disparagingly ol the present, with its unusual visitation and duration of snow, ice and novel ad venture of fun, sorrow and hope. It is a fact that New Year's day was cele brated with great social ecof; the enjoyment being -really intense; that is, to those who called at the houses advertised tor the occa sion. No year has been inaugurated with more graceful and generous auspices than was 1877 yesterday. The queens of society, each assisted by some fair and graceful princess, did well, and in no city of the Union was the New Year more elegantly saluted and more gracefully entertained than in Memphis. The different mansions where re ceptions were held evidenced a cultivated taste and social cheer to be commended. The young ladies were especially graceful in their enorts to assist the older members ot the household, and at no time, nor at any open home were there aught but good taste and social refinement displayed. Happy, indeed, was the inaugural of 1877 in Memphis, and long will the pleasant memories be cherished by the many who were participants in the welcoming of the new year. The deep snow reminds us of what the old nearro said. He was stamping the snow-clad platform at the railroad depot m lexarkanawhen approached by a white man, who asked him how were the times, and what was the matter. uolly, boss," he replied, "it seems to dis nigger dat de north an de south hab jmed hands. Look at de snow, an see how de rabbits squeal. " Let us hone the heaw snowfall raav be a (rood omen, as indicative of the unity of sentiment and harmony ol fraternal relationship be tween the frozen north and the sunny south for 1877, and for evermore. The weather has moderated somewhat, and we hope to see a speedy dissolution of the snow, which is now retarding and, m fact, blockading busi ness. At the levee there is nothing doing. It is well nigh impossible to haul a load of cot ton, or anything else, up the streets. The mules slip, and are no lonerer able to perform their "accustomed task. The levee presents a dreary, cold appearance, destitute of brute and man. Here and there may be seen a small pile of freight covered with snow, and all the more neglected because ot the weather. As stated in Sunday's Appeal, the steamers have sought ice-harbors, but the Illinois, G. W. Cheek, and A. J. White, now in the hands of the United States marshal, are ly ing just above the wharf, and in iinminent danger of being- cut down by the heavy ice which is running in large quantities. Last week the whartmaster requested Mr. .baton. the United States marshal, to remove these steamers, as an accident to them would add to tho insurmountable obstructions at the landing. The United States marshal, who has, perhaps, about as Imuch idea ot the river ice-gorges and steamboats as a butterfly has ot the north pole, refused to moor the steam ers at anv other point, should there be an ice-gorge here like that of 1872, these boats will be cut down or sunk. However, the cred itore will be the only losers, for the public have long since lost any interest in these boats, which are now tied to the bank and ex posed to the dangers of the ice. Perhaps it would be a good thing to sink them ; it may be the result if they are to remain where they are until the ice comes down. The upper Mississippi, Ohio and Cumberland are frozen, and theft will be an unusually heavy flow of ice down in this direction. All the upper streams are frozen tjght, ami at pres ent there is no hopefuul Indication of naviga tion being opened soon J Yesterday the ice was floating past this city in large cakes, but up to dark there was no sign of a gorge. The snow has been general throughout thus State and Arkansas. At Nashville tho snow fell to a considerable depth and affords fane sleigh ing. Cumberland river is frozen solid and is now a skating park. The steamer T. T. Hill man, which left Clarksville Saturday after noon for Nashville, has not reached her destination, but is frozen in about twenty-five miles above the former city. The ice on Cumberland river is thick and close. Saturday night the clear waters on thi Ohio and Cumberland froze hard, and now both streams are unnavitrable except for slides and skates. The snow south of here is reported the deepest ever known. At Senatobia, Mississippi, it is said to be four teen inches deep. At Jackson, Tennessee, there is the same report, and the Sun, of that city, says : "For a week past an inch of frozen snow has covered the earth in this section, and the unusual sight ot sleighs, and the merry chime of sleigh-bells, have been an interesting feature of the Christmas frolics. During all this time, for 6even days at least, the sky has been overcast with dull and heavy cloudj, that seemed lit erally to lower upon the earth. And on Thursday evening, about six o'clock, a brisk wind from the northwest set in, and the snow began to fall in fine and blinding flakes. 'It has been falling ever since, and as we go to press (Friday night), has reached the unpre d en ted average depth of fourteen inches, and in places the extraordinary depth of throe and four feet. Such a enow ijtArcu was' never before known in this climate. Walking is very laborious, and the bulk of our popula tion are locked fost in door. All traffic on the railroads is suspended, trains generally being literally snow-bound, a thing never before known this far south.

The company are confident of their ability to pro vide drivers for their passenger and most of their freight trains, and to resume business as early as the civil and military authorities can guarantee the safety of these substitutes and the company's property. Tb strikers, on the other hand, have made a desperate resolve that traffic shall not be resumed until their demands are satisfied. The heaw snow rifts of Friday night still cover the track over the whole line west ot loronto. The strikers being so numerous and the intimidation so great, no attempt has been made to remedy matters, which are almost as bad between Toronto and Montreal. The train which left TorontOLtliis morning with Friday's through passengers, is now lying at Cabourg, fearing to proceed, while at Belleville matters are as suming a more serious aspect. The strikers are for the time in the ascendant. Last night seventy-eight men of the Forty ninth battalion were ordered to that station to preserve peace while the line is beiug cleared and to pilot in the Montreal passenger-train, which awaited orders seven miles east. While the track men cleared a line at one end of the yard, the strikers would block it at the other by running the snow-plows and cars off the track. Much time was lost in this way, and the company decided to wait until daylight for farther work. Early this morning the locomotive foreman went out and piloted the express train to Belleville. On its arrival the strikers assembled, and sev eral hours elapsed before a driver could be got to mount the engine to tak.j the train west. At the station the platform was crowded, and the military were unable to prevent the stri kers from severely beating the engineer. The volunteers were not ordered to load or use the nyonet. One of the strikers, in attempting to wrest a bayonet from a volunteer, received a severe wound in the n;vk, and sevend other parties were badly knocked about. Several pistols were fired, but nobody was danger ously wounded. The engine was then re turned to the shop. Four companies of the Fifteenth battalion have since been or dered out, but the men seemed unwilling to turn out, and at two o'clock in the afternoon only forty were under arms. Reinforcements from the country arrived at four o'clock,, but the company abandoned all hose of starting a train before to-morrow, when it is expected more efficient measures will be taken to secure the operation of the the line. LATER. It is understood negotiations are now pending between the Grand Trunk company and the government for the complete protec tion of the company's property by the milita ry authorities, and that no attempt will be made to resume business on the road until such security is guaranteed.
