The Memphis Bethel celebnited its anni versary Huntlay afternoon. Mr. Jarnagin re.vl hisrepirt. anl appropriate remarks were made by Rev. Mr. Daniel, of the Poplar street Presbyterian church, and Judge James Pierce. Owinr to the fact that the occasion had not been announceil, the attendance was meaner. 'Hie act of the legislature postponing tlie collection of taxes due in 1876, is a great benefit to the rich, as it enables them to be come all the more delinquent. Seventy-five per cent, of the tax-payers have already paid their tax for lSTO. 1'he amount paid is not seventy per cent, of the total tax due, show intr that the, richer persons are delinquent. The r-icently-made architecturaMmprove ment in the criminal court-room increases the facilities of that department of justice forthe transaction of pubhc business. Could some arrangement now be made to keep out the motley throng of idle negroes and -whites who daily l junge on the benches back of the bar? a still greater improvement would be achieved. The services at the Central Baptist church are largely attended, both in the after noon and at night. Much interest has been aroused by these meetings, which receive an additional attraction because of the sweet singing of Ilev. L. B. Fish, of Chicago. All who once hear him are not content until they again hear his voice in the sacred melodies which he renders so touchingly. t riday night, Captain Bob Leech's grist mill and gin, with all their contents, at Tillatobia station, on the Mississippi and Tennessee railroad, seventeen miles from Grenada, were destroyed by fire. The prop erty destroyed was valued at twenty-five hundred dollars, on which there was a policy of fifteen hundred dollars in the Planters insurance company, of Jackson, Mississippi. Jennie Calhoun, a colored woman, was convicted of larceny from the person by the criminal court yesterday, and the jury recom mended that two out of the ten years of her imprisonment be taken oft". The woman abused the jury and court for this recom mendation ot mercy in lessening ner sentence. During March' Gras she stole money from the pocket of a negro named Jim Wilson, who came here from Tipton county. IXTERESTIXU FACTS. The Length and Condition of the Street aad Alley or the City Water aad .s Main a Ctty Improvement. PERSONAL. somewhat in- COLONKL J. T. L.EATH 18 disposed, but able to be out. Miss Carrie Phelan and Miss Georgie O'Neal, of Alabama, are visiting Miss Kate Phelan, of this city. . Mr. Wm. R. Mooke. who had his shoulder dislocated by the accident at Beard's station, on the Louisville and Cincinnati Short Line, reached the city Sunday and is resting easy. Mr. Jacob Brooks, known as Jacob Halle, of this city, was married to Miss Julia Grass heim, in Philadelphia, last Sunday. The happy pair will reach Memphis this week, and hold a reception Sunday evening, upon which occasion the groom and bride will re ceive the congratulations of their numerous friends. Below we present a few facts relative to the streets and other public features of Mem- ?his that may be interesting to the reader, rom Assistant City Engineer A. J. Murray we learn that Memphis has sixty-four miles ot streets and forty miles of alleys, making a total of one hun dred and four miles. The length of Main street is two miles and a half, it being the longest of the city thoroughfares and the same width aa Front, which is eighty-two and a half feet. The streets running parallel with Main, and all cross streets to Beale, are sixty feet wide. The alleys are from sixteen and one-half to twenty-five feet wide. There are ten miles of stone and wooden-paved streets, and four miles of stone-paved alleys. The city covers an area of four and three fourths square miles, being two and seven eighths miles long from north to south, and from one to one and three-fourths miles in width. While the city engineer is one ot the best and most reliable in the Union, yet the burdens of the city government incident to the large debt and heavy taxation have pre vented the required improvements and proper repairs of the streets. During the past twelve months three hundred lineal feet of the wharf have been improved, and the front piled, at a cost of twenty-one thousand dollars. The streets are lighted at night with five hundred and sixty-one gas and two hundred and fifty oil lamps, making a total of eight hundred and eleven. The total length of gas mains amounts to between torty-hve and hfty miles, the largest 'pipe being sixteen inches in diameter. The rest are from ten to two inches in diameter, none of the distributing mains being less than the latter dimensions. The waterworks have eighteen miles of mains, the largest and principal supply-pipe being twenty inches in diameter. The rest of the pipes are of eight and ten inch diameter, the supply mains having been built in contemplation oj" the city's growth and the increased demand for water. "There are four lines of streetrrailway, going in eight directions.which extend fifteen miles and run thirty-five regular cars, on which the com pany pays a tax of twenty-five dollars, and also for two extra ones.which entitles the use of coaches on special occasions. Despite debt and taxation the city is improving in the character of its buildings, a large number being in course of erection, and indicating the fact that Memphis, with her splendid Commerce, is destined to grow and become great.

In the oriminal court, yesterday, John W iley, colored, was convicted ot horse-stealing, and his punishment fixed at ten years in the penitentiary. --The attendance at the Central Baptist church Sunday night was very large. The chuich was crowded, and many found it im possible to gain admittance. Ed Wilson, colored, broke into a Front street cotton office, Sunday, for the purpose of stealing, but was arrested by Officer Scott. Williams was committed to jail by the re corder yesterday. Detective J. W. Smith vesterdav ar rested Ed Hart and James Bagler as sus- Jicious characters. Last night Sam Harer. ohn Flaherty and Thos. Nevel were arrested on a similar charge.

Prof. Mueller gave a delightful hop last night in his new hall, at the corner of Second and Madison streets. The participants passed a pleasant evening, and will be glad of the opportunity to attend the next hop ol this distinguished terpsichorean artist Thurs day night. The Weber Troupe.l The Lisa Weber burlesque opera troupe appeared to a fair audience at ths Memphis Theater last night.ina farce entitled Laughing Hyena, and in the opera of Ernani. The most attractive and entertaining feature of tlie occasion was the comedian, Mr. James Vincent. The same programme is announced for to-night. The Lisa Weber troupe is a first-class variety organization, the members of which are possessed of experienced talent. In this respect, we can commenu me iroupe, for it is not often that such an entertainment is afforded the public of this city. The acting and singing partake of the amusing, and thereby prove acceptable to those who wish to laugh and enjoy the ludicrous. The Billiard Match. Last night Messrs. William Sexton and George Slosson played a game of billiards of five hundred points at tlie Peabody hotel sa loon, Mr. Edward bhaw being reteree and marker, and Messrs. Sid Cook and Ben Marelier thn umDires.

Alter me game tne champions made a series of fancy and eccen rcie shots for the edification of the spectators. .uessrs. Sexton and Slosson will remain during the week and give free exhibitions day and night. The Bethel Lecture. There was a medium-sized audience at the Bethel last night to hear the lecture upon the "Prominent Features of Social Life in Ger many," by Rev. Adolph Thomas, pastor of i the Free German Protestant church. Previ ous to the lecture the audience was enter tained by Prof. Legler singing a solo in an excellent manner, the instrumental accompa niment being by Mr. Ulrica Thomas. The lecture of Rev. Mr. Thomas was well com posed, and delivered in an earnest and forcible style, so as to impress itself upon the audience. The subject he treated afforded an excellent theme, and anything short of an ex tended notice would fail to do justice to the excellence of the lecture. Mr. Thomas pos sesses descriptive talent in the highest sense, while his illustrations and comparison, if' we may judge by what we heard last night, are distinct and intelligent in : he extreme. While laying no claim to polished rhetoric or eloquent language, he grasps his subject and presents it in a manner ooin simple anu eany of comprehension by the most ordinary mind. Ilis effort last night pleased the audience very much, and afforded much information respecting the characteristic features of Ger man life. About eight o'clock Saturday night a negro named Butler Buster, who resided at the Norris place, north of Wolf river, and about two miles from German town, committed an atrocious murder. For some time he had been treating his wife in a cruel manner, never losing an opportunity to abuse and beat her. A few days ago he insisted upon removing to another home, and Saturday night renewed the subject, but his wife re1 fused to accompany him because of his cru elty. Her refusal enraged Buster, who seized their infant child six months of age and dashed its brains out against the bed-post. The terrified mother tried to prevent this act, but che could not arrest the fiend, who seemed to gloat in his work of death. Not satisfied with, killing his child, Buster seized his wife and beat her in a most unmerciful manner. After rendering her unconscious he stamped her repeatedly, and only desisted when he thought he had killed her. Butler fled and has not since been heard of. He is a brown skin negro, aboufc- forty-seven years of age, and has a defective eye. His unconscious wife was found on the floor, and lieside her the infant with its skull crushed. The woman is in a dangerous condition and may not sur vive her injuries. Sunday Shcrilf Anderson visited the place, which was surrounded by an excitea crowd ol negroes, who expressed great indignation because of the fearful crime and its perpetrator.
