Wc have received a printed circular from Francis Woclford While, of Portsmouth. Ktigl.ind, to the- effect that he Ls using his e.,nie-t efforts to e"tab!ish a Young Man's christian a"-ociu.tion in this city. Here is a chance for tii- young men. We are und-r obligations to the Crockett Count! ritiwl for this: "The Memphis Aitkai. is one of the best new-papers in the St.ite. It in an old and reliable 'taper, and our jeople who wih to keep themselves post- il. lyith on TKitionnl an-l Hte nTnirs, rflnhot better thtvn t rubM.-rilje for it." In die Srats court, yesbrrduy, Uie Lin-tit!'' cie of the Unitetl States were de cided by th: iury. In the U-n cattcs Verdicts were n-ndenrd fr the United .states. These ivs. knovm a the ejexlinent suitu, involve the title to a larjfe quantity of Fort IVreririff land, which was sold rtKjT govtrnment taxes durir 'olr war. Judfre Triirff annotinctd yen-b-rlav that the defendants have a rieht to re deem the pmperty at any time within the pe riod allowed bv confrref1! and that the Teruict in the?e cases d'8 not interfere with this priv iletre. When t!ie propertv is redeemetf the verdicts will be set aside. By al-out the middle of rtet May the jitiMic will hat tvJea liie last of the present thrn; Cent postafre stamp, and begun to get accustomed to one that is red, or possibly a new tint. 1 his change has been rendered necessary, as stamp-washers take off the oily cancellation without acid or alkali, and use the stamp atrain. A series of experiments just completed convinces the postal depart ment that green i the poorest color to be found. With the change of color there will le a change of design. The medallion head of Washington will be retained, but it will lie relieved by an open scroll ot white, and the scroll-work will have a different pattern. We have received from Mrs. Francis Wuoliord White the following circular, dated Memphis, January 10, 1877: "Feeling the M-es-sinir need of some reliirious onramzation junocy the young men of our city, f am using my earnent endeavors for the establishment of a Young Men's Christian association in Memphis. In view of the great importance of this wwrki its part neglect and to war ran', future success, I need the sympathy, en couragement and hearty co-operation of all christian people. A primary meeting will be held at an early day, of which I will ad vise you, and to which your attention is so-li.-ited-. PiiOuld you desire a personal inter vie w in the meantime, such can be had as best suits your convenience. Yours, faith fully, FRANCIS WOOIJfORD WHITE, "of PorUmoutn, Fngland." The Louisville Vourier-Joumal has the ft)!iowing: "The blockade on the northern railroad lines out of Louisville continues, as many as three hundred and nine cars, all loaded with freight, being compelled to lay over on the Nashville road yesterday, by rea son of the inability of northern routes to per mit a transfer to their tracks. It is known here that large quantities of molasses, cotton, sugar, tan-bark, etc., are at southern points awaiting removal. The Louisville and Nash ville road will, of course, receive toll for this freight, but were the northern lines able to take it away the Great Southern branch could forward all to its destination very promptly, and thus release, its own cars from the pres ent embarrassment. That the Louisville and Great Southern line is so well supplied with rolling stock as to be able to block three of its connections, besides supplying the demands of three or four large business communities along its line, as well as those of a large local traffic between smaller stations, is certainly very complimentary evidence of the excellent manner in which the present management conducts its business. This company's busi ness is saiil to be greater now than at any time Sinn!-theiBiaand but for the nresent blockade it is lfnowntHiTrThr"ii n 1 1 1 11 in tim road would be greater than ever before in its history. The interests of Louisville are very closely identified with those of the Louisville and Great Southern line, and all citizens are of course always glad to hear of its pros peiity." The mode adopted by the darkies for conquering the difficulties of the coal famine is thus well hit off hy "Old Si," in thelAt lanta Sunday Herald. What the old blaek philosopher says is applicable to the lazy, trifling divrkies of Memphis. "Old Si" says: "1'se sawed up two cord ob fi'-wood8dis day, which 'lustrates de parryble dat hit's mighty po wether when somebody can t find a littl irb frtr ttr flnl" a little .10b for ter do! "I suppose you are not afraid of freezing. then?" we said. "Not ez lontr ez dar's light 'ood, lint cot ton an' flint in dis country, ef Vae "quainted wid myself." "You are better off. then, than some of the darkies-.

A correspondent of the Somerville Falcon writes a smcv letter m favor of the Memnhis and Knoxvilfe railroad, and shows its impor tance to our merchants and the people along the proposed line. In speaking 01 the exor bitant charges 01 the Memphis and Charles ton railroad, he says: "For instance, fl 75 per bale on cotton Iroin bomerville to Mem phis, and their stock worth five cents on the dollar; before the war 85 cents was charged and their stock was worth 80 to 90 cents. Passenger tariff from Somerville to Memphis 2 bo now; belore the war, $1 50. It was only yesterday I examined a freight bill naid by a merchant of SomerviLe on five barrels of whisky, shipped trom .Nashville to him. The charge on the five barrels from Nashville to Liecatur, where they came into the Mem phis and Charleston railroad, was SI 20, distance of about 115 miles; then over the Charleston road to ISomerviUe was the out rageous charge on the five barrels of whisky ot flu to. 1 am glad to see an interest man ifested by some of our merchants to right the imposition by placing a number 01 wagons on the road to Memphis, loading them down with cotton and back with general merchan dise, and I learn that next season a number of them are going to do likewise. Let them go on with their good work until the Mem phis and Charleston railroad gives them a fair rate of tariff. I believe I express the sentiment of nine-tenths of the people in this vicinity when 1 sav thev would prefer the old- fashioned transportation, through all sorts of weatntT, rather than subuut to such an impo sition as the Memphis and Charleston r til- road practices upon our good people, in both schedule time and exorbitant charges. Why, 11 a iarmer wants to ship a mule trom Mem phis to Somerville it costs him 12 or 13 The people are getting tired of this treatment. and are ripe for any proposition to alleviate their suffering. We nave a live town, and bucked by a good country, and if any liberal ity was extended us by the Charleston road wt: would be second to none in West Tennes see." PERSONAL Ma. Duval M'Nairy, a well-known citizen of Nashville, is in the city, en roitfe to lexns. Mr. Henrv Thomas, of Schoolfield. Han- auer & Co., is spending the winter at Tampa, t tonda, lor the benefit ot 111s health. Mu. L. H. SELiJiits, formerly of the Mem phis and Charleston and Mississippi Central railways, ana recently 01 tne t lonaa railway, is in the city and will remain several days, the guest ot mends. The Cleveland (Ohio) Leader, of the sixth, has an interesting interview with Mr. H. T. Tomlinson. of this citv. relative to the late Ashtabula railroad accident, by which his leg and arm were broken. Mr. lomiinson s ac count of the accident is quite vivid and in teresting. He is being kindly cared for by Mayor Hepburn, of Ashtabula. Austin Miller, jr., and W. T. Coates, of Boliver, the latter a prominent grocery merchant and one of the sufferers by the recent conflagration at that place, have been visiting the city. Mr. Coates has risen from the ashe 1, purchased a new stock here, and will start out with renewed energy to overcome hi misfortune. He has the nerve, the energy, and the confidence of the people, and is bound to succeed. The Yincennes (Ind.) Sun, of the ninth instant, says: "Adolph Bernard, aged about fortv-five years, died at the LaPlante house, on Thursday last, of pneumonia and dropsy of the chest. He was familiarly called 'Frenchv' by those who knew him, and they speak of him as having possessed many gen erous qualities, and that 'he was his own worst enemy.' The deceased was a native of France, where his family are said to possess great wealth. Several years ago a distin guished politician of Tennessee, while visit ing that country, induced Mr. Bernard to come home with Iiini. He had been married, but was separated from his wife, who re tains the custody of liis children. Frequent disapi ointments hail rendered him iniEffer ntto his situation, and lie expressed him self a? caring not whether he hed or died. !t high family position and wealth, he i 'i'il in a strange hind without one of bis kindred to soothe his dying momenta." AMI'S EM EXTS. Th 'hlrbaaaw fauardM. To-night the Cliickasaw iuards will repeat the Itontance of a x6lhig V.h at 'the 'JLyaia lliOater. The entainments by the Chickasaws last week were not only accept able but excellent in every rejeet. The cast of the company was judicious anil the rendi tion of the play both eay and intelligent. The interpretation, of the different characters wa such as we taught expect only from pro fessional actors. 'Ihe audience were delight ed with the acting, and liberal in praising the worthy ybunf pentlemeh who assumed the respective role. To-night the Ilomttnce of a Poor Young Man will be rendered with bet ter effect and even more pleasantly. The cast is the same, and each member is an fait in his respective role.

A reaceful Contest Results in Securing a Fair Representation In the General Council and Board of School Ylsitors. Names of the Successful Candidates A Very Small Tote Polled SK Persons Arrested for Illegal Voting the " First Ward Difficulty. The election for members of the city coun cil and school board yesterday was one of the most orderly ever known in Memphis. With the exception of the first ward there was but litle, if indeed anyj excitement among the candiilatef or their friends: In the eighth ward the ticket composed Of Messrs: S. M. Jole, John J. Barry, Thomas Coyne and Judge Tom W. Brown made no opposition, but was withdrawn early in the day, leaving a clear field for the gentlemen nominated bv the Democratic ward club. In the tenth ward there was some little show of opposi tion to the regularly nominated ticket, but this did not accomplish anything. In the second ward the contest was characterized by friendly feelings. In the fifth ward there was a sharp contest, there being five candidates for councilman and three for school visitor. The friends of the reeperitite. candidates were energetic and active in their efforts to secure a big vote for their favorites. In the first ward there was a good deal of bitter feeling manifested, the contest being one of the hot test and closest ever known at the polls there. Very little interest was manifested through out the city, and owing to this the vote was quite light. The muddy condition of the streets and the assured fact that good men generally would be elected, also prevented many from taking an interest in the election. The Republicans made no open opposition, t hough here and there they had a sly candi date m the field. The total vote cast was only 3960, against 10,178 cast at the Presi dential election last November. Mr. Ben K.

There were several persons arrested for ille gal voting, but there was no persistent effort to cast illegal ballots at many of the wards. The following are the names of the men?ar rested for illegal voting: William Jones, col ored: Jake Washington, colored; Mike Smith, colored; Thomas F. Jackson, colored; John Ryan and Diak Walsh. Ihere was peace in all the wards except the first, where at one time fears were entertained of a big fight. In this ward a difficulty resulted between Cap tain M'Fadden, of the fire depart ment, and Jack Walsh, the lat ter a candidate for. councilman. The prompt action of the police prevented anything of a serious character, much to the gratification of the friends of both parties. So far as we have heard, the following is the manner ini which the difficulty arose: Mr. Walsh, in his zeal to secure votes, was very loud, and his actions were believed to be cal culated to cause a serious disturbance at the noils. While making himself noisy in his efforts to get in negro voters he attracted a good deal oi attention ana -raisea some ap prehension. Chief M'Fadden, who was pres ent, said to Oftlcer Scott: " Watch that man, for I believe he will create some disturb ance." The officer said he "thought so himself, and saw it in his actions." At this iuncture Mr. John Walsh called Captain M'Fadden "a damned liar." At this Captain M t adden requested tne po- ice to take Mr. vv aish away, and tne omcers of the law did so. Mr. Walsh being put into the middle of the street and beyond the crowd, put his band in his pocket and look ing ior his pistol. .Not hnding his weapon. te remarked: "tiod damned you, i will go on and fix myself." With this Walsh went to neighboring grocery, where ne obtained u revolver, and returning to the polls was seized y Captain M r adden. who tried to disarm int. During the scutHe. several blows were interchanged, and Jack Walsh, with several other men being knocked down. Sergeant M fcJroy seized Jack Walsh and disarmed him. Officer IS. .yd faking virsf of Captain M'Fadden. During the excitei'nt Mr. Walsh lnaiiiiged to make his way thrwh the crowd, rrx". trniflU overhauled and taken to the Adams street t'atirfnhnTise. There was no fighting after this at the first irard. TliiS; w- lielieve, was the only disturbance at the election yesterday. Stoves! Stoves! Stoves! Heating stoves of nil kin Is at cost.
