At the office of Jones, Brown & Co., 266 Front street, at half-past three o'clock yes' terday afternoon, the citizens' meeting was called to order, pursuant to adjournment. borne torty or hfty gentlemen were Dresent, Mr. W. N. Brown was on motion of Dr. Clark made temporary chairman. Dr. Clark moved that Mr. John E. Kandle ba elected perm a nent chairman of the meeting. Mr. Kandle refused to serve, and Dr. D. T. Porter was elected permanent chairman. Colonel F. A. Tyler was elected permanent secretary of the meeting. Lr. U. I . i'orter, chairman, stated that he was willing to work, but could not serve as chairman ; he did not have time to give to the work, and most respectfully de clined the honor conferred upon him. Caot. K. C. Williamson s name war rdct- gested as permanent chairman, vice Dr. D. T. Porter, who declined to serve. Cant. Wil liamson stated that he had taken an active part in the matter eo far, and he thought that it was now in the hands of the mer chants that they should select as chairman one oi their number, consequently he de clined to serve. The matter was finally settled by appointing a committee of three to select permanent officers. The committee was composed ot Dr. Clark, Colonel Jesse For rest and Louis Hanauer. In a few minutes the committee returned and nominated J. R. Godwin as permanent president and F. A. Tyler as permanent secretary. The report of the committee was adopted. Mr. Godwin thanked the meehn&r. but slated that he had other business to attend to; but he accepted, and wanted to know the otgect of the meeting. Captain K. U. Williamson, on being called upon to state the objects ot the meeting, said the morning papers had stated that. He said that the object of the mass-meeting held at the city hall and the executive committee appointed thereat seemed to be to take con trol of the city, and to shut out one man. lie moved that this meeting call upon Hon. John K. Flippin to announce himself as a candi date for mayor, to run for the office on the People's ticket, and that nil present pledge themselves to give bim their hearty support. This motion was unanimously adopted. A motion was made by Mr. Brown to se lect an executive committee. Mr. John E. Kindle opposed calling it an "executive committee." Laughter. It was decided to call it a "business com mittee," to be composed of one from each ward, and one for the city at large. Mr. Brown moved that a committee of three be selected to select such "business committee." Captain R. C. Williamson opposed that plan of selecting a committee, and favored selecting such a committee immediately. His suggestion prevailed. "THE BUSINESS COMMITTEE." First Ward. James R. Miller. " Second Ward. John E. Randle. Third Ward.C. W. Metcalf. fourth Ward. J. B. Faires. Fifth Ward.L. P. Cooper. Sixth Ward. Charles G. Fisher. Seventh Ward. Jesse A. Forrest. Eighth Ward. S. J. Camp. Ninth Ward. Gus Reder. Tenth Ward. Michael Burke. Member J"' Henry T. El Uett. Nearly all the nominations were made bv Captain R. C. Williamson. Dr. Clarke moved that a committee of five be appointed to wait upon Hon. J. R. Flip pin and acquaint him with the result of this meeting, and auk him to appear before this body. Mr. Goodwyn We have made no nomina tion. This is not a convention. The com mittee should only wait upon Judge Flippin and ask him to announce himself as a candi date. Dr. Clarke This ',is a convention; it i a nomination made by tbe beet citizens of the city. This is no child's play. We should now carry out the objects of the meeting to the fullest extent. Mr. Brown believed that this meeting or convention had already nominated Hon. John R. Fiippin, and he indorsed the motion made by Dr. Clarke. Captain R. C. Williamson This meeting has nominated Hon. John R. Flippin, and ajl that is necessary is to have the committee acquaint him with that fact. He favored writing him a letter, and securing his reply in writing. The answer may contain valu able information. Captain Metcalf opposed making this a nomination, but favored asking him to an nounce himself as a candidate. Ha opposed this meeting making a nomination for mayor.' He favored getting up a petition asking Mr. Flippin to become the candidate pf the citizens for the office of mayor.

The ques tion is, how will we meet them 'i We can not fcO to the polls and meet the masses un less we consult with them as to this nomina tion. Mr. Metcalf favored a mass-meeting, or some other way to consult the people. He favored a committee to acquaint Judge Flip pin with the action of this meeting, and then getting up petitions in support of Judge Flippin for the office of mayor. Dr. Clark I am for quick and active work. It is time to take action dot, or not at all. If we do not take action now. we .might as well yield the fight to Mr. Johnson's ft iends. This meeting has nominated Judge Fli,Tm' and we should stick to it. ili,". Drown A petition has already been circul'a ted and some six hundred names have been ginned to it. He moved, in lieu of all other rn.'00. that a committee of fire be appointed present this petition to Mayor Flippin, an 4 request him to announce him self as 'a caLdidate for mayor. This was no nomination at . ... Mr. Brown 's uiotion wat put and carried unanimously. 1 V? following gentlemen were appointed on the tiotnmittee : W. N. Brown, D.vS. R. Clarke, VT, W. Goodwyn, Dr. D.

He had been informed that. if auch a thing were at tempted, a crowd woald be there to vote down whatever was proposed at that meet ing. It might result iu a collision or difficulty that would diBenice the city. Captain R. 0. Williamson favored a mass meeting. There was no fear of a row. Let us bare a rousing meeting. Memphis is not that kind of a place. Mr. Goodwyn moved to hold a mass-meeting, and that the business committee be in structed to make all arrangements for secur ing a hall and selecting the night for holding such ratification meeting. The resolution was adopted. On motion, a finance committee of nine was selected, and also a permanent treasurer. On motion. Mr. Frank White, jr., was elected treasurer.

In the senate consideration was resumed of Mr. Smith's resolu tion Instruction: the flounce committee to report a Din to adjust tneneDt accural ne to toe nrouosition of the arbiters. Discussion followed, during which Mr. Smith spoke at length ln support ot the resolu tion, which was laid over without action. In the house Mr. Peters Introduced a bill to facili tate the collection of the revenue. Mr. Ford Introduced a resolution providing that any proposition or communication which Judge MacKinnon, claiming to represent the New York syn dicate, desired to present should be reduced to writ ing and sent to the speaker of the house. Air. tnioe introaucea a resolution in-ii juaee MacKinnon, claiming to represent tbe creditors, pre sent to the governor his authority, and that the gov ernor advise the house as to the same. Mr. Bnloe also presented the following telegraphic correspondence: Nashvillk. Tksn.. December 7. K. D.

Mr. Enloe said that He could show that Judge MacKinnon represented nothing, and he thought the syndicate wanted to make something. Discussion ensued. Mr. Savage believed Judge MacKinnon should be heard, nut personally, but In writing. He opposed, however, the admission of Judge MacKinnon, or any other lobbyist, to the floor. As a lobbyist he Is one of tiie most honest and boldest he ever knew, be- -'iae ot bis rrank avowal oi what ne proposes to do. This 'cbbylst had told blm that whatever might be d'jne he 'Qtended to make from ten to twelve thou sand'dollars before the settlement of this question. Mr Peters lni.'OJueed a resolution ln lieu of Mr. Ford's to the effect that the bouse take a recess un til ten 'o'clock ln order f? give Judge .MacKinnon an opportunity to make a statement iu an Informal manner and exhibit hlscreden lals and evidences of authority under which he proposed to act; that he also submit ln writing any proposition he might de sire to make to the legislature. Mr. Peters said he desired to reach the best results possible for the In terest of the State. Mr.Phelan favored letting Judge MacKinnon come before the house and say what he had to say. 1 tie State executive, he undei stood, at the last session of the general assembly, presented this same Identical sixty cent proposition, originated by the so-called board of arbiters. The legislature had time to act upon It before adjournment, but did not. Now he had submitted the same proposition at a cost of twenty thousand dollars to run this extraordinary session. The only possible excuse or reason he could give was a few letters by a few owners of bonds. The legislature was be ing made a saoject of exietlraent at a cost of twenty thousand dollars. The governor had relused to sub mit Judge MacKinnon's proposition. Telegrams weie read which attacked Judge MacKinnon directly and personally. They were signed by two persons who did not say that Judge MacKinnon did not represeat the bonds. The governor based his call upon tbe recommendation of persons representing two mil lion seven hundred thousand dollars worth of bonds. Mr. Brlen called the previous question on Mr. Ford's resolution, which was sustained, and the resolution ado;ted as amended. Mr. Wilson presented the minority report of the Juiiclary committee, saying In conclusion that the legislature should enter upon the consideration of no proposition except thai embraced in the gov ernor's prodaioaUon. Mr. Nelson moved tbe adoption of this report. Mr. Peters moved to adjourn, which was agreed to. The members remained to bear Juu? MacKinnon, who had been granted leave by tbe speaker w dress them. Judge MacKinnon stated that he represented the Funding association of tne United States of America, limited, holding eighteen million dollars, lie nret proposed to fund tbe cebt at sixty cents ln the dol lar, at six per cent Interest, payment to commerce next July; the bonds to run forty years. He proposed, seeondiy. to fund tbe debt aa It now stands at throe per cent., giving the State of Tennes see all tbe time wanted; Interest payable semi-annually. Six per cent on tbe ?13.0H).(XK) debt produces annual interest of m2H.(H)0; three per cent on the present debt will be SOOO.OOO. a saving of SlHX.OiiO annually, or over SI ,500.000 tn forty years. In the third proposition they were willing to fund the debt at four per cent for two years, nvs per cent, for five years, and six per cent, for the remainder ot the forty years, interest from July next. In answer to the question. Judge MacKinnon paid tbe syndicate was tbe only convenient channel that the owners of the bbnds could operate through. He would formally submit the above written proposi tions on Monday. A private dispatch to Comptroller Oalnea from re sponsible parties In New Yoik, says Judge MacKin non's syndlsaM does not bold over one million, probably not one-half million, dollars of Tennes see bonds; that Its scheme U against the bondhold ers. To-day has been lively In legislative dries. The telegrams are raising quite a breeze. Judge MacKin non left for New York to-night for an unknown pur pose, promising to return ln a few days.

General Ord, commanding the Texas frontier, who is still ln Washington consulting with the authorities, told an officer this moinlng, who asked why the officers could not take their families with them, that they need not w.rry about that; they would be (.'lad enough before long to have left these Incumbrances at home, as he would have heavy " ,j & iv. lucw cij buuii. ii iias uecuine Known mat these four foot companies are to be mounted and furnished with field pleces-a military move ment which foretells siieedy action to army men.

Is here on a leave of absence, and Intended leaving this morning for his com mand, but was ordered to remain and await the ar rival of Lieutenant-tieneral Sheridan, who will be here to-morrow morning for consultation. The fresh outbreak of the Sioux has complicated affairs, and all military men will unite In saying that If we are to have any trouble with Mexico our available force Is ridiculously too small to effect anything. There Is gr-at anxiety to hear some authentic Information regarding Lieutenmits Bullisand Young, who crossed Into Mexico over three weeks ago with a command of Seminole scouts, but have not since been beard from. Many believe that they have been captured and destroyed by the Mexicans; others that they have been sent as prisoners to the City of Mexico. All are In a state or excitement, and several requests have been made by officers to hate their immmii ordered to tho scene of the expected disturbances.

December Haves Rhakea iim red rag of defiance at those who are disposed to op pose him. und his acts Indicate that he Is open to no compromise, nor does he seek any. To-day all of tne names wmcn lulled of continuation to the vari ous New York city offices were again sent to the sen ate, notwithstanding the entire delegation of Re publicans In congress united ln a written request that Collector Arthur and Natal Officer Cornell be retained. Instead of giving this formidable request any hearing, almost Immediately following its re ceipt the old batch of names were sent to the senate. This precipitate action on the part of the President will still fuitlier alienate Coiikllng from him. While lie was not consulted with reference to the action of the New York delegation In the matter. It was a plan arranged by Conkllng's friends to brine about a compromise, and one which would have tempered his acerbity of feeling. It was thus represented to Hayes, but the sequence shows that be Is not alarmed at the threats of the Achilles of the senate; nor will he move a hair's breadth out of bis marked course to temporize with blm. Now that the last desperate efTort to conciliate within the patty has failed, the storm-cloud which has leaa werhanglng ths President to occasionally break out ln secret session, win soon Durst lortn ln the open sessions of the senate. Conkllng feels confident that he can keep the New York appoint ments pigeon-holed for some time ln the commerce committee, of which be Is. chairman, because ln tha reorganization be has had lmluence enough to have Burnslde transferred to tbe postal committee, and Jones, of Nevada, who will vote with blm, assigned to Burnslde's place. There Is a slow match alandy burning, and It will reach tbe maga zine if the friends of Hayes make any effort to confirm tbe New York appointees without tbe sanc tion of the commerce committee. Among other nominations sent to tbe senate was Beed, reap pointed postmaster at Toledo, and Fehrenback. to be suervlstng Inspector of steamboats. Neither, however, can assume the duties of tbe office until confirmed, and tbe old Incumbents suspended to make way for tbein will have charge of the resiiect Ive offices until the senate advises and consents to the new appointments. ' A Russian official dispatch, dated Bogot, says that the battles of Marlanl and Elena, on the fourth Instant, were more unfortunate for the bus -lout Cat at first reported. Fifty officers and eight een hundred men were killed and wounded and eleven guns captured. The operations on the sixth Instant were confined to driving tbe Turkish right, numbering ten thousand men, from Statarltza to Babrova.

Last evening the phenomenon called the "occultation of Venus" was exhibited in the sky. In other words, to uuote the astron otner of the Chicago Tribune, our satellite passed directly between us and the evening star, which shines forth every evening now in a blaze of glory in the western skv. Last night, the planet, being- only twotnd a half days past the time ot her greatest eastern elongation, was a very brilliant object in the evening sky. lhe moon, being only lour days old, was about one-sixth part illuminat ed, presenting to us a very narrow crescer of light. She was not, therefore, bright enough to fiale the light of Venus, except daring tbe tune she was actually between us and the planet. Hence the phenomenon was one ot gitat interest, even to the world ol naked-eye observers: while it was a beautiful sight through the telescope, as the weather permitted the occultation to be witnessed The crescent moon did apparently re ceive the planet between her horns, and the apparent descent Of the planet unto the moon afforded a stately ana measured illustration of the cup-and-ball game. At six o'clock in -he evening, or a few minutes thereafter, the miron being then , 15.6 degrees above the horizon, the position of Venus was on the up Der lpffc of the moon's dark limb, which theu began to creep over the planet. The apparent diameter at v enus was seconas oi arc- a distance yhich th- moon described in very nearly one .minute of time. But, as seen throuch the telescope, Venus was almost ex actly half full, leaving a miniature representa tion of the moon when the latter is a week old. The bright haif of the planetary disc was that nearest th? moon, and was covered in about thirty seconds after the beginning of the occulation, thougti ine ugnr, oi me pianer, was partially visible to tne naxea eye ior a very few seconds more. 1 nis was the most interesting phase of the phenomenom. The planet continued hidden for about an hour, when she peeped out from behind the southern (or lower) horn of the moon. Tho distance of Venus from the earth at the time was about 257 times that of the moon, the respective distances beinff 63.600.000 and 248.000 miles. This fact enables us to account for the ap parently small size of ' Venus, though her lineal diameter is to that of the moon as 326 to 100. Chancery Court Morgan. Judee.
