Behrends's infant, concerning the Darticu- lars of whose death we published in yester day's Appeal.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Ada Rob inson. The CoranAfls 'fTenn.

This expressed it all. The people were outraged by wjch a crime being committed in their midst, and for that reason they visited sum' mary punishment upon the party. Mob-law. as a general proposition, is wrong, and it is vuiy in suca extreme canes as uus one, wnere it should be tolerated. We hope that no such cause will ever again be presented for such a course upon the part of the people, but if it should happen, the party may expect just Bucn a punisnment, ior this is one crime that the people will not let go unnoticed.

Taking the banner of the society. Mr. Murray led the way to Madame Yin cent's Crystal palace, where the banquet was held. The banquet was prepared in the ele gant style characteristic of Madame Vin cent.

Thr sale of the lot on the corner of Main and Washington streets was opened Thurs day at the appointed hour, bat was adjourned until Mondav next, on a bid of one hundred and twenty-five dollars per foot. Being a public holiday, it was deemed advisable not to close the sale on that day. GKimjoRN I have the honor, as president of the SL Andrew's society of Memphis, to bid you a most cordial welcome. We have met to-night to celebrate St. Andrew's day, the patron saint of our mucn-ioved isle, to renew our piedfes oi friendship, and to cherish and keep alive a time-honored cus tom. And K should be the desire of every true- hearted Scotchman to keen alive those customs which have been handed down to us by our fore fathers. It has been, my fortune to have been con nected with the bt. Andrew's society of Memphis since its Inception, and during all those long years I have been honored with almost every office In the gift of the society. It Is with mingled feelings of joy and sadness that I east my eye around this so cial board and find so many vacant places, which, in times gone by, we're filled, and thit most worthily, by Scotchmen who were well known to every member of this society. When I call to my mind those friends who are gone, who have crossed that "bourne from which no traveler returns," and who are no longer here to greet us with the smile of welcome, and who were, with me, active In all that pertained to the In terests of our society, I am led to exclaim, "On what a tender thread hangs our existence." In this con nection I would particularly refer to our lamented friends John Alnslle, John Leslie Gilbert, Duncan AtacLean, David m. Phlip and Harry T. romllnson. But a short time ago and they, with us. were active and anxious as to all the Interests of the society, and great credit Is due to those men for the manner In which they acquitted themselves as officers of SL Andrew's society. As one of the original charter members of this society, I had probably a bet ter opportunity of knowing and Judging of their efforts to further our society's benevolent purposes. This Is the second time that the St. Andrew's society has honored me with the Presi dency, and I would here take the opportunity of ex pressing my appreciation of the honor conleired upon me. It Is useless for me to enter on any lengthened description of the origin of our society, tut would embrace the present opportunity of ap pealing to every member of our society to give me their hearty co-o Deration In the management of lis Interests, and I will pledge mysely to strain every effort to do my whole duty to you and to your Inter ests. I again, gentlemen, bid you most heartily a double welcome. After the above address ot welcome, the company was entertained with an address by CAPTAIN JOHN C. FORBES, in response to "The Day We Celebrate Captain Forbes responded as follows: Mr, Prcsipknt amp Gkntlkmeh I rls to-night to reply to a toast that any Scotchman can at least say a few words upon. Appearing before you one of the youngest Scotchmen present, It seems Ill-befitting that I should be called to the task of answering to tne toast proposea: " i ne aay we oeieDrate, ana all who honor It." When I look around me and see Scotchmen proud of their nationality seated at tbls table, gentlemen whose talents far more befit them to this latK, I jeei a dimaence in rising to reply. When I reflect that I have heard around our festal board the eloquent voices ot John Leslie Gilbert, Duncan Mac Lean, and Davie Phllp all, alas, now gone speaking upon this subject, you will pardon me If I ask you to near wiin - my enort cnantaoiy. Leaving Scotland as I did a mere child of ten years. I vet have the most vivid recollection of the beauty oi its scenery, impressed upon me in cnnonooa. Visiting it again after a number of years, I found my childish Impressions fully verified, and I appeal to the Scotchmen present to-night to say If they will bear me out when I assert that the grass Is greener, the violets more frairrant. the dulses sweeter, than ever they found them elsewhere. Why, the prim roses in tne neuges aione almost tempt me to visit the old land again. Not alone are these my favor able Impressions of my native land. I can recollect the harvest-field, with Its multitude of happy la borers; l can recollect the noonday lunch, with its shearers scone and home-brewed beer, and to my mind no happier set of peasants exist In the wide world than in the Scottish harvest-field. I can recollect the long twllleht evenings, lasting until after ten o'clock, with the games on the village- green, ruming to my aged mend, Mr. Lemon, i will call bis recollection to Leven's market-day, with gay booths, filled with glittering toys; Its "merry Ari- arews" and "eneap jonns," and tne lads and lassies who crowded the little town, the air perfumed with flowers and resplendent with a sunshine that I think Is never felt elsewhere. I could dwell on my reool- lecnons ot Scotland, its mountain and lake scenery. Its winter sports, the rugged sea-coasts, that It Is a pleasure to visit, and I often think of the words of the immortal Scott " Breathes there a man with soul so dead. Whonever to himself hath said . This Is my own, my native land; Whose heart bath ne'er within him burned, As home his footsteps he bath turned From wandering on a foreign strand? Oh, Caledonia, stern and wild, Meet nurse for a poetic child; Land of brown heath and shaggy wood, Land o the mountain and the flood, . Land of my sires, what mortal hand Can e'er untie the filial band That knits me to thy rugged strand." With such feelings. which all true Scotchmen have. Is it strange that Scotchmen far from Scotland, per haps never to see It again, should lay aside all other care and feelings, and on one night In the year give expression to tneir loyaay and anection to tne land of their birth? We do not toast 8L Andrew simply be cause be was a good and charitable man, but we toast "Che day we celebrate, and all who honor It," as an expression coming from the heart of every true Scotchman, the world over, of undying affection for Dcouano. Following this came the remarks of JUDGE T. W. BROWN, in response to the toast, "The Queen of Eng land." Judge Brown arose and spoke as fol- lows: MRPsasioKirr ajtp G kntlx mtuc T he theme ot this toast always appeals to the enhuslas tie admiration and lust affection of every Brit ish subject. Nor can the Intelligent citizen of this republic whethei native or naturalized, who draws his lineage from that remarkable composite race that constitutes the klna-dom of Great Britain and Ireland, fall to acknowledge with the kludest t to the Illustrious queen a ra alter for aiai consideration. Doubtless minis ters, and others who aspired to become such, looked to husbanding her with some one who might, tor In triguing for him such a match, seme their own am bitions. She gave no encouragement to any such Intrigues, and remained as reserved on the all-tnv portant matter as a maiden "In meditation fancy free" might da At last In impatience , of Mel bourne, then premier, eoold jtnd ft no lonaer. On,e day,t the ecse of an omdal visit to her at the pal ate, he hesitated about leaving, looked embarrassed. rassed Englishmen will do. even when crime minis ten. It Is said that she looked somewhat amused and a little curious. Finally Melbourne asked her II sne was aoacned to anyone whom an would inte to associate- with her In the discbarge of her high prerogative. She demanded whether he questioned her on this point In right of his offioe as prime min ister. He Instantly disclaimed Intrusion In this re gard on ner in any oilier way man state Dosinessi Her Instant reply was that she had formed such an attachment for one whom site would like to associate with ber In the administration of the realm that the Duke of Wellington was that person. Of course the then aged duke, though a wise adviser. Ot for the ancient W ltenagemote,eruid hot be thought vi an Mia ntn,i wi , i ui i vi yuuug viuiuall. Alio feigned or real misapprehension hv the youthful queen of the meaning of her minister produced. It Is said, a decided elongation of A1C bourne's facial front. Of course it wjs tMeant to the amor Vyntria i minister to know that there was one MOfT Person In the klnsrdom In whom his sovereign bad more confidence than In blm. This ended. It appears, the Intrigues of the cabinet and the opposi tion as to br marriage, and her choice fell where her aTnctlohs pointed, and rested wisely on the eon sort of her own selection. This Incident Is preg nant of much that indicates the influences that shaped her . conduct as a sovereign, and secured to her the true glory of womanhood nnrltv. iklelttv nnri love In her domestic relations. Her intense admiration for the Dake of Wellington brought ber under an Influence peculiarly ravoraoie for the development ot that devotion to her duties which has characterized her whole life. It Is said that hi. tvlnllnna irnH her were Almost DarentaJ. Closing a long military eareer of almost constant success with the overthrow of Napoleon at Waterloo, clotji&d with- titles, algnltles and Influence by tne mn'l'nntnl nntlnn. rnhnm his snnerb soldiership had saved from the absorbing tyranny of the "Man of Destiny;" and thus, In the enjoyment of all those accessories that render unhallowed ambition dan gerous, Wellington Insisted on continuing nothing more than the faithful servant of his sovereign and the defender of the liberties of the Brit ish constitution. Els boast was that he had never solicited a title, nor asked any acknowledg ment of his services by his country, and advised one or bis officers, who relt negiectea in me oisinDnuuo of honors and nrefermnnt. neither to ask recogni tion nor to complain of the slight, saying that du ties full hriillv dischnnmd would sooner or later com mand adequate rewards. The fact that aa a young woman victoria could appreciate sucn a cnaracter and accord him such admiration as the Incident re lated attests, proves that she was cast In a superior mould, and assumed her resDonslble position with capacities altogether equal to the station that for tune assigned her. How Influential!? the counsels and advice of this great man shaped her eareer can be readily conceived. But the most attractive phase of her life the one that is that "touch ot nature" which brings all. the humble and the high, In close and loving kinship with her. Is her wife and mother life. Though the sovereign of a great empire, she forgot neither wifely iove nor wiieiy sunoraination. to conspicuous oia she stand in the conjugal relation, that her married existence was a very Idyl of love, a model for every household. In these days, when women are so dls- posea to strip tne relation oi wife oi an mat onoe made It noble and useful In society and the state. It Is not amiss to Dolnt to the British aueen In rebuke of these disorganizing tendencies of the hour. As a mother, she has been aa faithful in affection and duty to her children as she has .been toward ber sub jects as a sovereign. In fact, there Is but one mon arch in Europe, to see and talk with whom I would, as a private Individual, submit to court ceremony, ana mat is engiana s queen, wny should we, Americans, refuse to accord to. and cordially com mend whatever of true merit may be found In the people oi tne untian empire, whether that merit be found In the palace or the cottage, beneath a crown or wrapped In "hoden gray." Are we to be scared by a titier email we esteem ourselves so poorly that we must envy, and therefore denounce all who wear crowns or have titles? Surely, If our greatness and progress have not put us beyond this Jealousy, then we cannot complain of contempt. The blood of the Norman can trace Its current or Inspire high emprise without a title. We have, as a people, accomplished sufficient to make the plain American republican the peer oi mm wno wears coronet or crown. Ameri cans can be democrats without becoming Jacobins. There is no reason why we should now entertain to ward England feelings of even estrangement, up to one nunarea years ago ner history was our history. Aglncourt, Bamllles and Malplaquet belong to us in common with Eneland. We have, under other forms and with other methods, only sought to- administer tne jBiwsn constitution ana preserve its liberties. We boast of precisely the same n null ties of which the Briton boasts. We Insist, as be does, that with limited means, through 'brain and pluck, we have accomplished more than other neo riles. The elorv of the British empire does not Interfere with us. Of that glory we should be oroud. It Is to us ancestral. Indeed, in the broader view of morals and humani ty, we should desire the British government to pre serve in Europe its ascendency. Mankind has not been Injured by that ascendency, especially In Eu rope. The moml forces underlying as a tap-root British endeavor are the moral forces underlying our political and material progress. These moral forces we see continually urging forward In Great Britain liberalism and popular expansion, as with us. Her people and government occunr to Europe a position that cannot be dispensed with. She occupies the place of no baleful planet In national orbit. I re member, when a boy. hearing from a Kentucky sol- aier oi me war oi lsia, wuat was to me men a strange sentiment. In the enthusiastic admiration for Napoleon entertained by the youthful, I expressed to him my condematlon of the persistency of the British ministry In having made war on Napoleon, accompanied by a wlrh on my part that England might be crushed. The old veteran, then crippled by the British bullets still In bis body as the souven irs of Raisin and the Thames, straightened himself as weii as nis rneumatism would allow, ana testily replied: "Young man, you do not know what you are talking about" England did right to whip Bona parte. She conferred a great blessing on Europe In doing so: and though I nave fousnt. as I would do again, the British,! never wast their government or people destroyed. I have since learned to appreci ate tne gooa sense oi mis oia neniucsy soiaier, ana in tne nee or nis sentiment i pray mat me day may never come when MacaulaVs artist shall stand "on a broken arch of Loudon bridge to sketch the ruins oi du jraurs." "OH. ABE YOU SLEEPING. MAGGIE?" In response to the request of the president and tne can ot the company, Mr. A. J. Mar- ray eang the beautiful ballad. Oh. are you Sleeping, Maggie t The song was pleasantly rendered, and elicited the applause of every one. .. :-' COLONEL BUTLER P. ANDERSON. Colonel Butler P. Anderson made a short response to the toast, "The President of the United btates. ' Colonel Anderson said that abroad the American eople have a Drettv good renutatlon for hoastlnar. Perhaps there is some truth In this, as all nations aave men- cnaractenstics. it may oe a tact mat me American people" are noted for their bragging. If the American people should be proud of anything, It is ther rulers: the President, the way In which he la elected, his position, the course be pursues, the du ties ne assumes, ana tne restrictions mat attend nis administration of affairs, should be. If they are not, a pride to all and every citizen Every citizen, even the humblest in the land. Is eligible for the Presi dency. The office has, perhaps, been filled br every class. It Is an office charac teristic of the American Deonle. and If we should boast, we are somewhat excusable the broad extent and rapid growth of our nation. ranking with the proudest and mightiest of the world, and new ruled over by a man. who. as th saying goes, mougn nanny true, was elected by the people. Recalling the list of Presidents, and re membering that Tennessee furnished three one seventh of the whole to the highest position to the gift of the people, a position respected not only here ut throughout the world by crowned heads, the po sition Is a cause of congratulation, or ought to be. to tne aistinguisnea gentleman wno now occupies it. Though but a few years ago In an humble position. uo now occu Dies me r reaiaency as acnnsiian een- tleman. RECITATIVE SONGS BY MR. MOTTEN. Mr. Uriah Motten. being called upon, next entertained the company with selections of comic recitative songs, which set everybody in a roarot laughter. ' JNot only the senti ment of these songs, but the happy manner and graceful wit of Mr. Motten. proved of tne most entertaining cnaracter. and were highly relished. Following this were re marks by COLONEL JOHN DONOVAN in response to a silent toast drank "To the memory of our beloved friend. Colonel Harrv T. Tomlinson." In his remarks Colonel Donovan said that he had known colonel Tomlinson fifteen years in MemDhis. His death was not only a loss to the SL Andrew It-so ciety, out a loss to me whole community. There was never a kinder-hearted, more charitable, benevolent man. His heart was full of charity and benevo lence, colonel Donovan said he could not dwell on the virtues of Colonel Tomlinson, for he would become too deeply affected In feelings to say more. There were many other officers ot the society now dead, but all were good citizens and esteemed members of SL Andrew's. In conclusion I will say let us drink to the memory and the virtues of all who have ore- ceaea our lamentea oromer, uoionei Tomlinson, and are now dead. The company arose and in silence drank the toast. GBEAT ClSIHG-OUT SALE OF f . CEeTJTHiaCCt at FEBXIHHISG OOl tiRUBBS & At'STIVS, ftl Main U Preparatory to a ci'mH? of January 1, 181$.

Uttell's Living As?, for 1878. The success of this sterling periodical is owing to the fact thai it enables one, with a small outlay of time and money, to keep pace with the best thought and literature of the day. - Hence its importance to every Ameri can reader. The ablest lif ing ontnHitcrrs to periodical literature are represented in its pages, some of whose names will be found .in the prospectus published in in another column. It has always stood at the head of its class, both in the quality and quantity of the reading fur nished; and, in fact, it affords of itself so thorough and complete a compendium of what is of immediate interest or permanent value in the literary world as to render it an invaluable economizer of time, labor and money la the multitude of periodicals of the present time quarterlies, monthlies and weeklies such a publication has become al most a necessity to every person or family de siring to keep well informed in the best liter ature of the day.

The great virtue of this medicine is that it ripens the matter and throws it out of the system, purifies the blood, and thus effects a cure. Schenck's sea-weed tonic, for the cure of dyspepsia, indigestion, etc., pro duces a healthy action of the stomach, cre ating an appetite, forming chyle, and curing the most obstinate cases of indigestion. Schenck's mandrake pills, for the cure of liver complaint, etc., are alterative, and pro duce a healtny action ot the liver, without the least danger, as they are free from calo mel, and yet more efficacious in restoring a healthy action ot the liver. These remedies are a certain cure for consumption, as the pulmonic syrup ripens the xoatter and purifies tne blood, ine mandrake puis act upon tne liver, create a healthy bile, and remove all diseases of the liver, often a cause of con sumption. The sea-weed tonic gives tone and strength to the stomach, makes a good digestion, and enables the organs to form good blood, and thus creates a healthy circu lation of healthy blood.
