We are indebted to the Senatolia (Mi;-.
Tidal Ware for the following: "Memphis is
making preparations tlian ever lor
the festivities of Mardi Gras. which comes on
the thirteenth proximo." We hope our tx
chanjfes will call attention to the grand pr b
arations that are lxiiner made for the carni
val in this city.
A man whose vocation is that of a watch
man at the old " Gavoso house has mysterl
ouslv disappeared, and it i feared that he
has been foully dealt with. Wednesday nif.dit
he was seen on Beale street in company with
two negroes, to wnom lie pam a iew cents,
and had a two-dollar bill changed. Aner
that the man proceeded up the street, tol
lowed by the negroes. His wife, who iooins
in the Gavoso house, is very much distress,
because of her huslmnd's unaccountable ab
sence.
The Fort Smith Independent has done us
a great kindness bv placing us letore its pub
lic with this graceful indorsement: "We are
receiving the Memphis Daily Appeal, and
find it one of the lest exchanges that comes
to our table. The Appeal is the leading pa
per of Memphis, and one of the best in the
south. Its proprietors spare neither pains
nor money in collecting news, both foreign
and domestic, which, together with its sound
editorials and spicy locals, make it a particu
larly desirable journal. A considerable ior
tion of its space i" lovotad to lilumwi nf
fairs, which it discesses intelligently, and its
general tone and ability make it worthy of a
hearty support by the people of this Stato."

Tuesday night Aimee, with her French
opera company, iiegms a snort engagement
at the Memphis Theater. She appears Tues
day, Wednesday and Thrtn"Liy evening, rmrt
also gives a ertnesday matmee. 1 he opera
for Tuesday night is Lecoot's fiiroJle-Oirurta.
it being one of the most familiar ot the later
works of the coiniKrsers of the bou It school.
Her engagement in New Orleans last week
was successful in evert- respect, and the press
speak of her and her company in the most
commendable manner. In Leeocq's sparkling
opera she is said to api?ar to great advan
tage, and is now brighter and more ertYt live
in her acting and singing than whn she was
here several years ago. As an actress, she is
graceful and" vivacious, and cannot fail to
afford the amus;ineiit:k)vir.g people of .Mem
phis a series of recherche entertaiiiun nts.
Aimee 's company is not only well organi-ed,
but embraces "artists of recognized talent. We
are inclined to the belief that Aimee will
draw full houses during her engagement.
Reserved seats and librettos can lie procured
upon application at the usual places.

Editors Appeai. Notwithstanding my
great aversion to controversy, I iuust beg
jjermis-ion to notice an article over the signa
ture of "Edward Schiller," in your issue yes
ten lay morning. He first assumes to dicUtte
to yoa what you should or should not publish,
and makes an assertion which. 1 think, is "as
Uiseless as the fabric of a vision." that
"ninety-nine readers out of every hundred
are utterly indifferent to this matter."
Then? are thousands in this community who
desire to know the truth, and arc willing to
seize it wherever found. One of the most
intellectual and prominent gentlemen in this
city said to me this week that there were ten
thousand materialists in Memphis. From
your correspondent's reference to the bible, I
am inclined to believe he must be one of the
niniiU'r referred to. und the spirit manifested
seems to me to partake of the New England
Puntans. His statement about my preaching
is also ul fault. He never heard of "Isaac or
Jacob being slaveholders," but that Abraham
had three hundred born in his house, and
bought with his money, is according to the
record ; but what has that or Brighaiu Young
to do with ''this matter?" He gives this quo
tation from my article: "You owe it. Mr.
Appeal, to yourself and the community
to go and see tor yourself, like the noble
barons of olden time, to see whether these
things are as I have told you or not." I
wrote hurriedly, hoping to be in time for the
Sunday morning paper. Hence I was not
surprised at some typographical errors. If
our friend had lx-en as familiar with the new
testament as he professes to be with English
history, he would have seen in a moment it
was Berean instead of baron. He has erected
his man of straw, and makes quite a display
in demolishing him. Will you permit me,
Mr. Appeal to notice the conduct of these
Ben-ans. See Acts 17th, 12:
"Now, when they bail passed through
Amihitolis and Apollonia, they came to
Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the
Jews.
And Paul, as Ids manner was, went in
unto them and three Sabbath days reasoned
with them out ot the feenptures.
Opening and alleging that Cunst must
needs have suffered, and risen again from the
dead, and that this Jesus, whom 1 preach unto
you, is Christ.
'And sonieot them believed, and consorted
with 1'aul and Silas, and of the devout
Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief
women not a few.
But the Jews which believed not, moved
with envy, took unto them certain led
feliows of the baser sort, and gathered a
company, and set all the city on an uproar,
and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought
to bring them out to the people.
And when they tound them not, they
drew Jason and certain brethren unto the
rulers of the city, saying: These that have
turned the world upside down are come
hither also.
Whom Jason hath received: and these
all do contrary to the decrees of Cesar, saying
Him, un.li. a.s .ii jtng. one jesus
And they troubled tuC
rulers of the city, when they heard these
things.
'And when they had taken security of
Jason, and of the others, they let them go.
And the brethren immediately sent away
Paul and Silas by night unto Berea; who
coming tintuer went into tne sinagogue oi
the Jews.
'These were more noble than those in
Thes.-ulonica. in that they received the word
with all readiness of mind, and searched the
scriptures daily, whether those things were
so.
"Therefore many of .them believed; also of
honorable women wliich were Greeks, and of
men not a few."
I would ask is there not some similarity in
these cases ' Is not history repeating itself
lere? Are there not those in Memphis who,
like the Jews of olden time, oppose spiritual
ism for the same reiison that caused those at
Thessalonica to oppose the apostles, doing the
same in this city ? Does not the article refer
red to go as far in that directioa as this age
and country will permit 'i I go in for free
thought and speech everywhere, with no dic
tation to editors- or others as to their duty. I
wiil not notice other references to myself or
others, trat refer to what I have said through
various channels; invite the press and pulpit
to go investigate and report what they see
and hear in ope'i daylight, with no possibili
ty of collusion or imposture. I repeat what
said: 1ms is the most glorious truth ot the
nineteenth century, or it is the vilest hum-
hno- of the ao-e. We demand an in vesti ca
tion, and are willing; to submit to the strictest
test conditions. It is a well-known fact that
those secular papers which admit articles
upon this subject, which is agitating the pub
he mind throughout the world are sought
after more than others that close their col
umns against the discussion of the subject. . I
am done. samuel watson.
The I. ant of an Unimportant uestion.
Editors Appeal Dr. Jones's card in your
paper of yesterday demands a brief explana
tory reply, and then I shall dismiss the mat
ter from f urther notice. The Doctor thinks
I should have held the Appeal responsible
for the assertion that his was the first statis
tical report of the kind ever published in
Memphis. Now Dr. Jones must have seen
the error at Cknce, and since a week after
ward he had not corrected it, I reasonably
concluded that if he did not authorize it, he
at least by silence sanctioned it. Again, if
indeed the important word rigidly was
omitted in my first letter, it was unintention
ally done; certainly 1 did not wish to misquote
Dr. Jones. The Doctor declares that in my
annual tor 1874. "not a birth or marriage re
port appears." The books of the health of
fice will show that the Avenl-Rice-and-Tay-lor
administration did not organize until late
m tee spring 1 think near the hrst ot JVlay
and as so many more important issues de
manded attention that it was thought advisable
to postpone the execution of that part of the
statistical ordinance until the commencement
of 187-3, when orders and forms were thor
oughly distributed; and if, perchance, Dr.
Jones succeeded in collecting a few more cer
tificates, 1 must think it more duo to the bet
ter understanding of the law by minis
ters, physicians and midwifes than
any superior executive ability of
his. The doctor also says, in regard to the
forms used in his office, that they were
"gotten up by Mr. S. C. Toof, and copied
from the Chicago report, with a few trivial
changes, which we agreed upon." I confess
that much of my plan was borrowed from the
Chicago office, but 1 was in the health service
several years, and do not remember any report
being exactly like mine but Dr. Jones's. In
conclusion, it was clearly not Dr. Avent's or
Dr. Rice's place to notice the Appeal s mis
statement. I hat branch ol labor was then ex
clusively under my control, as it is now under
Dr. Jones s. it is some comfort to hear
"one's policy"' reflected through succeeding
administrations, and'I hope Dr. Jones's valua
ble services may long be retained.

The proclamation of the King of the Carni

of Prof. King's great balloon, which makes
an ascension here Mardi Gras. Mr. Tracy
is making extensive preparations for the oc
casion, and, with characteristic industry, is
arranging for the publication of an attractive
journal, entitled I he ISalloon, containing the
graphic reports of the members of the eastern
press who have accompanied Irof. King in
his perilous voyages. It would be hard to find
more lnterestinir and thrillintr account, of
journeys through the air, and we are safe ii
saying that 1 he Balloon will prove no les
acceptable and pleasing, than interesting and
instructive to the thousands who will read it
Mr. Tracy will rjositivelv issue ten thousand
copies of The Balloon for gratuitous distribu

adjacent country previous to Mardi Grns. He
thereby will afford the most complete infor
mation respecting the balloon, and also afford
the merchants and others a rare opportunity
to advertise their business. The Balloon will
be ot thirty or forty columns, and, of course,
its typography will be worthy of Tracy's
most excellent Diluting establishment. Mr.
Tracy. will prove what he proposes to do in
this matter, and we know will afford our
mercnants tin unusually good advertising

INTELLIGENCE OFFICE.
Chances Made in its Management by
the Ladies' Christian Association.
The following has been sent to us for pub
lication by the Ladies' Christian association :
"A change has been made in the manage
ment of the office in charge of the Ladies'
Christian association. Mrs. Kesterson, who
formerly had charge of both the office and the
temporary lodging-rooms, has been employed
by the association as bible-reader and general
missionary, still having charge ot the tempo
rary lodging-rooms. Mrs. M. E. Alula . hi
taken charge of the intelligence office. We
hope the citizens of Memphis and surround
ing country will give this office the liberal
patronage it deserves. Many persons have
imbibed the opinion that the best and most
reliable servants are not to be obtained at an
intelligence office. There can be no reason
for this, and it is a great mistake, for the in
ducements ars all on the other side. It
much pleasanter for them to have a comfort
able place to sit and wait if they have to
wait than to go from house to house, hunt
ing a home. There is no charge made to
the persons applying for a situation, and only
the nominal sum ot one dollar to the person
securing a servant. A great many persons
are furnished employment trom this office,
for which there is no remuneration received
viz : women with small children ; disabled and
inefficient persons are ' placed in homes, for
which no charge is made It has not been
the custom of our ladies in Memphis to give
or require recommendations, as it is in larger
cities. It would be much betterit it were so,
and it will be made a feature in this office
to inaugurate this custom from this time,
Under these circumstances, if a lady gets
servant that is not recommended by the office,
and the person proves unreliable or inefficient,
she should not become prejudiced and with
draw her patronage; feeling that because she
has been deceived once, she will be ever after
ward. It is a rule in the office to give
printed receipt for .the dollar to be paid in
advance, and servants sent until the per
son is suited, a id if they cannot suit
then within a week the money
is refunded on presentation ot the re
ceipt. This is most reasonable and business
like. We believe this office would be liber
ally patronised if rightly understood, and we
, . i -i, y i? i ii ,
nope.ouriaaiej wui investigate ioruiemseives,
ana u mere is any cause ior prejudice or com
plaint report it to some member of the asso
ciation that has the office in charge, and the
matter will be promptly investigated and the
causes removed, if possible. This association
ask3 a generous, liberal patronage to help
carry on tins aouoie cnarity oi employment
