County Court Clerk Riley Bays that his reason for refusing to jrrant license tax to merchants and othsrs who tendered the amount necessary therefor, but refused to pay the mandamus tax, is based upon section 213, page 96, of the city ordinance, which is as follows: "Provided that no person or firm ehail be permitted to take out a license for any year, or fraction of a year, nnul all as sessment on capital invested for the previous year against said person or firm shall have been paid, adjusted or remitted by the gen- t-lM Wlllll .It. .

Glass, of Louisville, whose name in religion is Sister Mary Clare; Miss H. Condon, of Illinois, whose name in religion is Sister Mary Regi nald; Miss L. Davis, of Memphis, whose name in religion is Sister Mary Agnes. It was a most interesting ceremony, and those who had the pleasure of witnessing it pro nounced it a most beautiful and edifying Right. A solid silver gavel, of the most exquisite design and workmanship, was presented to the Societa de Unione e Fratellanza I tali ana. at their last regular meeting, by our worthy and esteemed teUow-citizen, A. V accaro, president of the Grand Union, in a few well timed and happy remarks. The gavel is the gift of the delegates who were here in attend ance upon the meeting of the Grand Union, which took place in this city last October, and is designed to convey their appreciation of the whole-souled and generous hospitality which our Italian friends of this city extended to them while here. Joseph Montedonico, Esq., the president of the Memphis branch, received the gift in his usual happy manner, and returned the sincere thanks of the society for this most elegant gift. A number of suit able inscriptions are on the gavel. These ceremonies through, the members then drank to the health, happiness and prosperity of the generous donors in bumpers of sparkling wine. The occasion was one of unusual in terest to our Italian friends, and will ever be retained in their memories with feelings of the liveliest pleasure.

From What la Called the "Sweat-Box" Attached to the Criminal Court Seasons Therefor. Jo Safety or Security Possible unless an Iron Cage, In fall TIew or the Court, Is Prepared. The Present Calaboose Is Insecure A Cage's the Thin; to Confine a Prisoner who was a King The Chain-Gang. The recent escape of prisoners from the criminal court calaboose has induced inquiry upon the subject. The calaboose is located in a cut-off, and is about as well adapted to the insecurity of prisoners as any place we have seen. One window is of iron, but the room is composed of pl'ank weather-boarding. the removal of which is not difficult, as has been demonstrated. It is narrow and poorly ventilated, the ster.ch from the clusl ered oc cupants being, at times, powerful and sicken ing. The calaboose was constructed at the time the Overton hotel was converted into a courthouse. Since its use. prisoners have escaped in but two instances, although they nave made remeatea ertorts. in which uxky were foiled. Once they removed the brick in the exterior wall, and, at anotner time, pried open the door with a bar of iron which VTeLS taken from the steam heater. From Deputy Sheriff Pollen, we learn that the calaboose, has been represented as insecure to the county court, and also to the criminal court The chance to escape is made all the trreater bv the larcre number of prisoners that are brought out ot jail every day ana put in the calaboose to await trial. From ten to twenty-five prisoners are daily put into this place, while the actual number tried is from one to five. The criminal court pays for the service of but two deputies, when, in fact, these occupy their time in serving process and lcotariflr after witnesses. A third deputy' sheriff has to attend to the court and the mrv. and look alter the prisoners in tne caia- i - " t i . , a. l: .1 : i J uoose. as Llic umcer a ttiicuuuu is uivciuru from the prisoners so much, because of his diversified duties, it is well nigh impossible for him to prevent efforts to escape being made. While it seems unnecessary, "and by no means proper, that so many prisoners should be placed in the calaboose when but a tew ot the number can De inea, stou mere seems to be no help for this. Previous to the repeal of the turnkey-fee law, this was not done, as it involved no little cost. Dep uty Sheriff Dreyfus, who has charge of the prisoners, savs that the present calaboose is insecure. His idea, like that of Sheriff An derson, is to get an iron cage and locate it m the corner of the criminal courtroom. This he believes would render the escape of pris oners impossible, though they are quite sharp and quick in their movements. As an in stance of this, he states that while he was callintr a witness Hans Margerum fled from the room and came very near escaping;. When the courtroom was in the buildincr on the corner ot Jefferson and becond streets, a wooden cage was used. With this, there had never been an escape, and an iron cage would be all the more secure. It was hardly possi ble to prevent a large number of prisoners from being brought out of jail daily to await trial. 1 he attorneys ask that their case be nut on the trial docket, but when it is called often some witness is absent. He does not think that an increase of officers would add to the security of the calaboose, for owinar to its location and the multitude of spectators in the courtroom, it is extremely difficult for a sheriff to get to the place m time to prevent the escape of prisoners. If the whole police force, and all of the sheriffs had been in the court-room, it is hardly probable that they could have heard the noise made by the prison ers in removing the wooden planks, or reached the calaboose in time to prevent the inmates getting out. The great crowd of negroes, vagrants and roustabouts that loaf in the crim inal courtroom is a nuisance, and also favors the escape of prisoners. He thinks the vag rant law should be amended so as to apply to all idlers who frequent and lounge in and around courtrooms for three days. Mr. Drey fus s opinion as to the insecurity of the present calaboose is concurred in by Deputy Sheriff Portlock, Engineer O'Donnell, Jani tor Clauncey, and others who duties are in and about the courthouse. Assistant-Attorney-General Gammon is also of this opinion, and says the insecurity of the present calaboose is evidenced by the fact that prisoners escape rom it without any trouble or dimcuity. There should be an. iron cage loca ted in the courtroom, for there are great many prisoners indicted for petit larceny who may have to be brought out daily, some of whom plead guilty and sub mit their cases. Owing to the long distance between the courthouse and jail, it would be very inconvenient for the sheriff to return with one prisoner in every Lislance. In ca.es ci iiiagiiitude the prisoner has to be present to have his case set. Judge Logwood tninks that the present calaboose can be made se cure by lining the floors and walls with sheet iron an eighth of an inch thick. He does not think an iron cage in the courtroom would be suitable, for the prisoners would then require the constant attention ot an otri cer. The odor from the cage would net be pleasant, for, as it is, the air in the court room is frequently offensive. the result of what we learned respecting the calaboose, and the number of prisoners usually in it, to gether with the big crowd and recent escape of prisoners, is doubtless apparent. In the first place, the present calaboose is insecure itself, and is also located where an officer cannot reach it in time to prevent the escape of its inmates. In the second place, the large number of prisoners kept in it has but little, it anything, to do with the t acuity lor escap ing, inasmuch as three could operate as quick ly, and without being seen, even should there be no others confined there, In the third place, the big crowd usually present in the criminal courtroom would retard the movements of an officer, and also obstruct a view of the passage and doorways. In the fourth place, the present calaboose should either be made secure by means of an iron cage, or else another sub stituted. At present no one can be held re sponsible for the escape of these prisoners inasmuch as the calaboose in which they were confined was insecure. The number of pris oners that have escaped is six. Others may escape, and it is necessary to have a secure calaboose, or else two or three officers to watch the place all the while. In regard to the ESCAPE OF escape of chain-gano prison ers, there is not much to say one way or the oth er. The escape of John Lea, Friday, was due not exactly to carelessness, out to a lauure on the part of the officer having charge of the chain-gang to examine the shackles on every prisoner before taking them from the sti tionhouse Thursday night, John Walker and John Lea. bv means of a rude file made out of a case-knife, severed the rivets to their sour-shackles. They then wrapped rags around the shackles, and held them on until a favorable opportunity for escape was pre- sen ted. Ihen they shuffled oft their iron coils and ran. one of the number. John Lea, beinur overtaken and captured by the guard. Several months ago two chain-gang prison ers practiced the tame means of escape. We hope the police commissioners will require an examination of the shackles on chain-gang prisoners before they are taken from the Ad ams street stationhouse. By doing this such escapes will be prevented in tnture. Great Great Clothing House.

Yesterday the criminal court disposed of a great deal of business. Old Daniel Strong, a colored individual who has been engaged as porter in a Main street auction-house, plead guilty to the charge of larceny, and will spend three years in the penitentiary. Dan iel stole a variety of articles from his em ployers, and upon being arrested admitted nis guilt. Willie Washington, colored, in dicted for entering the house of Maggie Wil liams, at No. 102 Jefferson street, and steal ing two old quilts, was convicted and sen tenced to ten years in the penitentiary. John Clear, a white man, indicted for stealing seven dollars from a saloon at the corner of Main and Poplar streets, was found guilty and sentenced to six months hard labor on Presi dent's island. Daniel M'Gill was convicted of stealing a caddy of tobacco, and sentenced to six months hard labor on President's island Tom"Conlay, convicted of stealing tobacco, was also given the same sentence. Thomas M'Kennie, colored, indicted for an assault with intent to kill, was convicted of carrying concealed weapons and fined twen ty dollars. Michael Malloy was fined ten dollars for committing an assault and bat tery upon William Cox. It will be remem bered that these are the parties the mention of whose fight elicited a damage suit for five thousand dollars against the Appeal. Judoe Logwood overruled the motion for a new trial in the case of Andy Goolaby, and sen tenced the prisoner to four years imprison ment in the penitentiary for malicious shoot ing. In the case of H. Seymour, convicted of stealing a horse from Brackett's livery stable, a motion was made for a new trial, and is under advisement by the court. ACCIDENTALLY SHOT. A Ballet from a Mmall Pistol Pierces Tana Adtas la the Bhoolder A. Painful Wound- Yesterday morning Tom Adams, colored. was accidentally snot in tne shoulder with a ball from a pistol in the hands of J. Green- wald, a shopkeeper on Beale street, between Main and Shelby. Greenwald was arrested for "shooting with intent to kill," and had an examination before Recorder Duff, when this grave accusation was dismissed. Adams states that he entered the shop and Green wald wanted to sell him the pistol. While examining the weapon it accidentally fired, the ball striking him in the right shoulder, and producing a painful but not dangerous. wound, upon the statement ol these tacts the above charge wa-i, as before stated, dis missed and a fine of ten dollars imposed upon Greenwald for shooting in the corporation. Adams was sent to the city hospital, where he naa nis wound dressed. REV. Lu It. FISH. Tbe Sweet Singer Stow Holding; Re vival Meetings at the Central Baptist Church A Great Success, Rev. L. B. Fish, the sweet sine-er. is aid ing the pastor of the Central Baptist church of this city in a series of meetings to be con tinued for ten days. Mr. Fish has loni? been connected with the State Sunday-school con ventions of his denomination. Leaving Georgia, in which State he traveled for sev eral years, he located at Nashville a year ago. Recently he held a meeting of exeat interest in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He was invited here by the congregation of the Central church, and has their cordial co operation. He did not commence preaching till late in life; lays no claims to oratory, but speaks from a warm, sympathetic heart, and often weeps when speaking of the love of God to men. His manner is auiet. serious. and persuasive. His singing is gentle and pathetic. It is no unusual thing to see manv persons weeping as he sings of the "Home of the soul," or the "Prodigal's return." He sings many ot the songs sung by Mr. Bliss, and some of Philip Philips's best productions. Ministers and members of other denomina tions attend, and everybody is .welcome. There is much power in music to improve and ennoble our humanity. The gospel of Jesus can be sung, as well as preached, with great success. The people of Memphis will always welcome such philanthropists and christians as Mr. Fish. We learn the ser vices will be held twice a dav durinc the present week. CATTLE STEALING. Hve- Stock Larcenies Revived In the Raral Districts A Hog and Three Bovlnes Stolen. Citizens who reside in the suburbs of the city complain of the amount of stock-stealing that is now being done by unknown thieves. For some time past cattle-stealing nas oeen carried to an unusual extent in this county, but titis tpecies of larceny wat, checked, if indeed not altogether suppressed, by the diligent efforts of the authorities. However, this was but temporary, for cattle stealing is again extensively carried on, and sis yet there is no prospect of its being stopped. Among the late victims is Major Mike Nealis, who resides on the Pigeon Roost road, two miles and a half from the city. Thursday morning he turned out a large hog and three head otcattle, but has not seen them since. From what he can learn, these animals were stolen by negroes and brought to the city. About seven months ago two negroes named Jackson and Williams were arrested for steal ing cattle from Major Nealis, and upon ar raignment plead guilty. They were sent to the county workhouse on President's island for six months, and were released a few days ago upon the expiration of their term of sen tence. Maior Nealis is of opinion that these negroes stole his hog and cattle last Thurs day. Persons who have loose stock should be on the lookout for thieves. ITXITED STATES COURT. Business Transacted Yesterday Man damns and Tax-Title Cases The Op eration of the New Law. In the United States court yesterday, Judge Trigg refused the application of the register to reooen the case of J. M. Tip-he fc Co.. ad judged to be bankrupts. This application to reopen was made tor the purpose of con sidering facts alleged to have been subse quently discovered. All the tax-title cases previous to 1875, which have been pending many years, were dismissed for want of ju risdiction under the new law. This decision is favorable to the claims ot many of the own ers of Fort Pickering and other property, which has been involved in ejectment suits. Judge Trigg refused so grant an application for a peremptory mandamus against the citv of Memphis, upon the ground that the mu nicipality would soon be bankrupted by the continual issuance of such writs. The pres ent inability of the city to pay these demands is virtually recognized. He allows the city until December to include the tax applied for in the general levy. A number of admiralty cases are on tnai. LAW REPORTS. Criminal Court Logwood, Judge. xne ioiiowmg cases are set lor trial on Monday next: Nos..KW, Molhe Hall; 59, William Beaurer: 587 and 586.

A sale of this class- of goods at this time of the year offers a golden opportunity to purchasers to obtain them at prices never before dreamed of by them as possible, and places these articles of luxury and refinement within the reach of people who could never hope to obtain them Uy pay ing usual retail prices, hales daily, until the entire stock is disposed of, at 10:30 a.ni.,2:'!0 and 7:30 p.m. every day.
