At the Theater to-night Mrs. Bowers will appear in a new play, entitled The Third Estate. The letter-carriers are out in their new navy-blue, uniform, and have .discarded the gray suits. Judge Trigg arrived in town late last night, and the United States court will be opened up to-day. Mayor Flippin on yesterday funded 'erenteen thousand dollars of the city bonds, and issued compromise bonds for the same. Con Cregan and St. Patrick's Ere, by Charles Lever; Hostages to Fortune, by Miss Braddon, are the latent in the ten and twenty-cent series at Mansford 'k. Last night, at the Memphis club hall. tableaux and other exercises were given for for the benefit of the Central Baptist church Sunday-school library. The entertainment was well attended. Several of the police only received ten dollars on Wednesday last from Mayor Flip pin, while others received twenty; but yon must not look a gift-horse in the mouth, even on the eve of an election. To-night the Sodality dramatic associa tion will present First Lore, a fine comedv, at the Washington street hall. The hall will be crowded, ot course, by the friends of the live and talented association. From a letter received from Judge Trigg on Wednesday, it was expected that he would arrive in the city last night, and in that event the United States court will be in session this morning; but Marshal Waldron'B flag, if fly ing from the courthouse.will tell the tale that court is in session. Putting common torpedoes on the street railroad trucki in order to astonish and frighten passengers, seems to be a favorite amusement of the boys on Jefferson and Poplar streets. It is a very dangerous prac tice, and should, if possible, be dispensed with. A few arrests would probably be an effective remedy. - Wednesday night next, at the Methodist church, in Sardis, Panola comity, Mississippi, Rabbi Samfield, of this city, will deliver a lecture on "Jewish Ideas." The invitation to lecture was extended to the learned rabbi by the citizens of Sardis and vicinity, irrespect ive of creeds, many ministers being among the number of callers. Shippert of Christinas gifts by express should bear in mind that thousands of people intend to make presents, the same as they do; and to insure tbe delivery of the giftn at a d.stance in time to be a Christmas greeting, it is suggested that they be delivered to the Southern express company before the Christ mas rush of business begins, which is about one week before the twenty-fifth of Decem ber. The thanks of the Appeal are tendered to the members of the colored band for a ser enade yesterday. The band was in one of tne wagons employed to drum up an audi ence in the streets for the Flippin ratification meeting at the Greenlaw Operahouse last night. The Appeal has been the best friend of tbe colored man, and advises them as to their true and substantial interests, which are identical with the interests of the white peo ple of the south, who belong to the Demo cratic and Conservative party. Last municipal election the two Johns mitdo the race John 11. Flippin and John Loajfoe. This time) two Johns will come to the tront again John Johnson and John R. Flippin ami probably another "John" will lie nominated by the Wotkingmen's party, and possibly a fourth "John" will be put in nomination by the Radical party, but the race will be announced as follows: John Johnson first, John Flippin second, the field distanced. The fire at Sol Peritz's cigar store. No. .T86 Main street, which occurred at half-past two o'clock on yaterday morning, was duly an nounced to the public in the Appeal a few hours thereafter. Mr. Penz estimates his stork of grxxls on hand at fifteen hundred dollars, on which there is an insurance of one thousand dollar in the Queen, of London, John 1'omUnson. agent. The loss is a total one. The building is owned by Mr. R. C. Brinklev, and is damaged to the extent of twi hundred dollars. No insurance. Mr. A. (J. Perea, who keeps a dry goods store at No. 384 Main, had his stock damaged to the extent of two hundred dollars. He is insured for one thousand dollars, also in the Queen. At the criminal court on yesterday the introduction of testimony in the case of the Stutn rs. Tom Bolton, on indictment for tbe murder of Jack Stinson, was closed, and the argument of counsel commenced. Attorney tieneral Wright will close the argument for the State this forenoon, anvl the jury will be charged by tbe judge. The defense intro duced three witnesses who testified that since the alleged killing they had seen Jack Stin son alive in Arkansas. WLen Stinson was shot at, or shot on board tbe steamboat, by Bolton and party, be tumbled into the river and was never seen again, unless by those witnesses above mentioned. This is a strong point in the defense, because the State ia bound to prove that the homicide was com mitted, but if the jury believe the witnesses for tbe defense, no homicide was committed by Bolton and party at that pistol matinee near Randolph, in December, 1375. tnf Is Offered.

Hoping that your deliberations may be characterized with wisdom, harmony and moderation, I now declare this convention ready for business. Secretary J. J.

Brown was escorted to the stand by a committee, and was introduced to the convention by. Colonel M. C. Gallaway in a few appropriate remarks. JUDGE BROWN'8 REMARKS. Gentlemen of the Convention. The position to which you have called me is neither new nor untried to me. But for the suggestion of others, that there are circum stances attendant on tbe present juncture in our municipal contest, which properly pro voke more than the usual acknowledgment ot the compliment extended to me personally in selecting me to preside over your delibera tions, I would simply ask you to consider me as saying all in that regard that a chair man, with his firet honors "blushing" on his brow, could utter, and then proceed to business. Such easy escape from a speech is not, however, permitted your presiding offi cer. The air is burdened with rumors that the action of this convention is to be antag onized by those whose duty it is, if consist ent with their past professions, to earnestly and honestly support the candidate of the Democratic and Conservative party. It is boldly avowed by men who bav3 been hon ored by this party, who have been promoted by it, who are under obligations to it, that it is their purpose to deal it in the coming struggle the exterminating stab. I remem ber well a fateful contest that waged over this fair and beautiful State of ours through weary years. The conclusion of the civil war found the intelligence and whatever of property was left by the ravages of war, and the industries of the State, pros trate under the dominance of a faction 'that represented an insignificant minority of the people. Through the forms of law a few dealt with the dearest rights of freemen with autocratic irresponsibility. The citizen who on foreign fields had upheld the flag of the repubbc was disfranchised. The descendant ot tbe pioneer, who amid all the rugged vicis situde, of the wilderness, and the hostde sav age, made in the fair valleys and lovely plains ot Tennessee the first essay for civili zation, and overcoming by heroic courage all the dangers of "the early settlement," re deemed to the arts of peace and the indus tries of a higher life this glorious slope from the mountains to the yellow Mississippi, this descendant of such a worthy ancestry was disfranchised. No voice was allowed to him in tbe lgUlution or administration that dealt with his property or his life. The conflict of Tennesseaus against this oppression and this usui -pat ion at once began, nor was it closed until success crowned tbe effort, and Ten nessee stood once more erect, disen thralled tind emancipated the hand of the despoiler no longer at her throat. This conflict was waged through dayn, months, and years of trial and varying lunuuc. jh aespair ior tne present and gloom for the future rested on the brave co horts that fought this battle against wrong. One organization, and only one, was then known to me as the intrenched ram n within which the soldies of liberty fought. Its name will be forever graven on my memory. For in an humble way I touched shoulders with those brave battalions. The name embla zoned on its battle flags was the Democratic and Conservative party of Tennessee. Ita or ganization extended from the spurs ot the Appalachian range to the tawny floods that weep our western borders. Every county, every town, every city had iu cfecinlined corps. At last triumph was ours aud every Citizen of the State stood unsLklnH a wiu (ne oaiiot is bis tyrant. Bat before the blood of tattle bad dried on the bayonets of Our victorious ol umns, when "the silver slipper of peace" shod the enfranchised thousands of our val leys and plains, I obae:ved, emering from retiracy. where the absorbtion pf business and exclusive attention to private affairs had confined them in inglorious activity during the fierce hours of the fray laggards, who became the most importunate mendicants for the offices, honors and emoluments which were to be distributed. The "battle-scarred veterans" were thrown to the wall, and the supple courtier took the prir.es. 1 have not lately, as most of you know, taken much in terest in political contests. It has seemed too much, latterly, a scramble for "the loaves and the fishes." Such a debate does not in terest me much. I saw, however, a call by a committee of gentlemen, to whom the mem bers of the Democratic and Conservative or ganisation had intrusted, at a former period, the control of its interests gentlemen who have the confidence of the party an (J of the people. This call announced that their func tions had ceased, and nothing was left for them in the discharge of their duties save to call together tbe masses of the party to appoint their success ors. This call was most publicly ad vertised. A leading journal most impressive ly solicited popular attention to the call. A meet in ir did convene in obedience to that call one that I learn was unusually large for such occasions. Its business was conducted, as I am reliably informed, with the utmost fairnewi and decency. It is true, perhaps, that the poor man and the laborer were in the majority. To this I have no objection. For until tho producing industries of the country shall control legislation, I know- ther will be no prosperity. The best way to specie resumption is to have enoueh of work to employ every laborer in the land at remunerative prices. The financial schemes ot bondholders and capitalists will never accomplish the result. I for one, am not afraid of a moderate infusion of the "blouse" among the silk stockings. It is altogether healthy. This meeting so called legitimately as none can deny as sembled to create an executive committee for the Democratic and Conservative party for the city of Memphis must command my respect. Is it surprising that in view of what this organization had achieved for the State of Tennessee, that I, an bumble soldier in its ranks during the hours of its fierce trials, though never the recipient of its offices or honors, should warm toward it? There was the old flag; there was the old cross in the sky, tbe conquering sign of the past. I might oppose it on a matter of prin ciple; never, however, on a matter of per sonal ambition. Its success is preferable to me to that of any particular man, however much I may esteem him. No one can throw in my face a matter of principle in the im pending municipal canvass. It is at last but a Question whether an organization which in the past has conferred on our State, county and city the benefits of free and pure govern ment, shall be deferred to individual ambi tion or the projects ot cliques and rings. A similar contest has but recently transpired in that once beautiful city by the sea, the pride ot the raJmetto btate, though battle scarred and war-worn. The wires have flashed to you the news of victory for that same conservative element that wrested the old State from plunderers and seated that chivalrous statesman, Wade Hampton, in the executive chair. Let Mem phis respond in congratulations over a tri umph like unto hers. You, gentlemen of this convention, are not the spawn of the "se lect" few, who would fain govern the many. You come from the people. Your credentials are legitimate not even the dispute of an electoral commission casts a shadow on your title or authority. 1 hen act boldly and wise ly in your deliberations. the thoughtful, tbe intelligent, the laboring masses will bus tain you eventually. Your banners will not trail in defeat, but flaunt proudly in victory. Gentlemen, I now declare this convention ready for business. Colonel John Donovan offered a resolution as follows, winch was read by Secretary R. D Jordan: THE FUNDING RESOLUTION. Whereas, The legislature of the State, by enactment, nas authorized the mayor and general council of the city of Memphis to compromise the legal bonded and floating aeot on tne basis ot htty cents on the dollar; and, whereas, a portion of said debt has al ready been compromised on said basis. Resolved, That it is the sense of this Dem ocratic and Conservative convention that the next mayor and general council shall pursue the policy of their predecessors in compro mising the city debt, and that we hereby pledge ourselves to support no candidate for mayor who is not in full accord and in defer ence with the same. On motion of Colonel M. C. Gallaway the resolution was adopted, by a very large ma jority. The two-thirds rule was adopted for the government of the convention, as hereto fore stated. NOMINATIONS. Colonel M. C. Gallaway nominated W..S Bruce. He said he did not think there was a Democrat in Memphis who would oppose nis election, li nominated. I he nomination was received with applause. Captain Ed Belcher seconded the nomina tion, and supported it in a strong speech. Mr. O. H. P. Piper nominated Ex-Mayor jonn jonnson as a candidate tor the nomina tion before the convention. Applause.! President T.W. Brown announced that the nominations were closed, and that the con vention should now proceed to a ballot. i ne convention decided that the nominees had to pledge themselves to abide by the ac tion oi mis convention. Colonel M..C. Gallaway pledged Mr. W, a. .Bruce to abide by the action ot the con vention. He said that he had had no con ference with Mr. Bruce, but he believed from his devotion to the party heretofore, that he would stand by the nomination. Ex-Mayor John Johnson, on being loudly called upon, appeared, and said that he pledged himself to abide by tbe decision of the convention. He would be in the front, no matter wno goi tne nomination, and no matter whether the party would be victorious or defeated in the municipal contest. He would not attempt to undo the work done by his present and worthy opponent. Mavor Flippin, but he would do all he could, if eiecteo, to carry out tne compromise measures with the bonded creditors of the city. He did not think the settlement was exactly right, it bearing too high a rate of interest, six per cent. a rate that no people ought to pay but the compromise was ettected, and he would, if elected, carry it out to the letter. Mr. Johnson it counted his acts as mayor, and his efforts to retire the debt by means of a sink ing fund. He again pledged himself to abide by the action et the convention, and retired amid applause. President Brown appointed as tellers Messrs. Ed. Worsham and W. D. Powell. FIRST BALLOT. John Johnson. fji w. s. Bruce 9 xsuimio tinea 2 Joe FlyDn ! A, 8. Llvermore 4.

It is well -known that I have hereto fore opposed Mr. Johnson, but now, since he has become the nominee ot my party, all hostility ia removed from my mind toward him, and 1 now move to make Mr. Johnson's nomination unanimous. This was done amid cheering and applause by the delegates and spectators. Mr. John Johnson was called forth. He said he felt honored by the nomination ten dered to him, for the compliment conferred upou him by the convention. He felt honored and gratified, and especially gratified to be able to again clasp bands with a gentleman who was always ready to defend his princi ples. If elected his efforts would lie for the benefit of the city in every respect, for the beneht ot all classes ot people. He would always pay for what he purchased, and would pay every man for his labor. He felt too overcome by the compliment conferred noon him to say any more at the present time, but be would take occasion to again thank the convention for the nomination. Mr. Johnson's speech was received with applause. Colonel M. C. Gallaway was again called upon. He said emphatically that he now in dorsed the nomination. He complimented Mr. Johnson for his manliness and party feal ty, when, at tbe former convention, he gen erously gave way to Judge Flippin, and worked bard for his election at the polls. He added that all the hostility he had formerly felt toward Mr. Johnson had now been re moved, and from the present time forward he would give the nominee of the convention bis hearty support. This announcement brought forth loud and prolonged cheering throughout the ball. On motion of Colonel M. I). L. Stewart, the present executive committee was indorsed and retained in power to conduct the forth coming municipal election lor the Democratic and Conservative party of the city.

They were all FliDbin men here to-night. He recounted the trlnries ef Memohis and the interest all classes of beople feel in her welfare. The time is approaching to select officers to gov ern this citv. This audience is here lor a Eurpose to elect John R. Flippin to the of ce of mayor of Memphis. Ihe only way to save us from impending ruin is to elect John R. Flippin. There is a difference of opinion on this question among party friends. Some think that party machinery is the only way to conduct' "public affairs. We do not think so. It is necessary to go out side of party sometimes, and the time has come. We should meet together as citizens, as Democrats and Kepublicans, for the common good. Citizens of all parties should meet and consult together about the public good. There ia no politics or party in the present issue. We want no party at this time. Let us put the party eye out and keep the other firmly fixed upon the good of the city. Mr. Estes told an anecdote, but on a for mer occasion an anecdote told by him at a Dolitical meeting, about "getting up to p' on the musical scale was remembered by the audience, and great laughter ensued. The anecdote told by Mr. Estes was about a man who. when as-ked if he could see as well out of one eye as the other, replied: "Yes, and a d d siarht better. I Laughter. I Mr, Estes eulogized Mayor Flippin and retired amid applause. MAYOR FLIPPIN. Mayor Flippin approached thu speaker's stand, and was received with prolonged cheers. He announced that a few days since he was called by the representatives of every party and race to assume me posiuon 01 mayor. Tne othce seemed to be thrust upou him. He proffered, not many hours since, to retire in favor of some better men, and that he would support them for the office. It was said that he was not the nomiuee ot a party. Party has nothing to do with -the present issue. The only question to ass a candidate is, "Is he honest and is he capable?" This is of more importance than belonging to any party. J udge J; lippin made a labored enort to prove that party was unnecessary in . this particular case, namely, his own election to the office of mayor. He was present to ask for the suffrages of the gentlemen who were in attendance at the meeting. He comment ed on the city hall Democratic mass-meeting which selected an executive committee. He referred to Colonel Robert F. Looney and his motion that Colonel John Donovan take the chair at that meeting. He charged that the meeting was packed, cut and dried in favor of Mr. Jonnson. From that meeting was spawned an executive committee in favor of John Johnson. He referred to Mr. Garvey as a risinsr vouner politician, who offered a cut and dried resolution at that mass-meet ing, which lasted precisely eighteen minutes by the watch. Judge Flippin continued for some minutes to ridicule Colonel Donovan and others, who took a prominent part in the meeting. He was triad that John John son had been nominated, because be believed that he had greater opportunities of beating him than any other person in the city ot Memphis. He proposed to expose his record and his misdeeds before the day of election. He contrasted his official record with that of Mr. Johnson's administration of city affairs. Mr. Johnson paid the police and firemen but he was unable to do so because the money was not paid into the city treasury, the taxes being paid in scrip. When the special tax for the payment ot the police and firemen was to be collected he had to take np some forty thousand dollars of warrants issued during Mr. Loague's administration. The men had to sell the scrip, and John Johnson purchased and speculated in that depreciated scrip. 1 he city to-day owed him Ir uppin nearly five thousand dollars, five times more than is due any other official of the city. He carried out the provisions of the law and could do naught else. Could Mr. Johnson have done any better than he had done? He thought not. He referred to his friend, Pat Winters, as one deriving a revenue from the sundry mandamus tax. He referred to the I. i . i rank mandamus tax ot some eighteen thousand dollars, and stated that he Frank will never be frank enough to let any one else have it. He, too, is a warm friend of John Johnson. Judge Flippin recounted at length as to the different funds and the monev collected under such funds and how s-ich funds was distributed. He then con trasted the expenses of the Johnson adminis tration with his t lippin sj, and drew a most favorable parallel in favor of his own admin istration. Johnson iccreased the bonded debt of the city nearly four hundred thou sand dollars in four years. This amount he rivited upon you.. Judge Flippin asked who would vote tor Johnson after that statement. You must come to the rescue or your best interests will be imperiled. He cared nothing for th vituperative shafts cast at him. One of the morning papers referred to him in rather an uncomplimentary manner as being an obscure individual many years ago. That may be so. Years ago he had encamped on the bluff, having come to town with a colton-wagon. He came to this town and met friends. IK was in the war. and. unlike many others, he had ended his service with Joe Johnson in Carolina. After the war he returned to Memphis, engaged in the Dractioe of law. and was elected to a judicial position. He was solicited to become a candidate tor mayor, and went into omce by an overwhelming majority. He solicited the people to come forward and redeem the city from her immense financial ambarrass- ment and incubus of debt, lie bad grappled with the debt of the city, and tor many months nearly five thousand dollars a day has been falling from the shoulders of the people of the city. If you put in Mr. John son as mayor, you will check this good work that has been going on tor months. A Voice He is going in there. Judge Flippin All right; the creditors of the city bave to be consulted, and they are dubious as to the result of a change in the management of city affairs. After a few more pertinent remarks, Judge Flippin retired amid applause and music by the colored band. OTHER SPEAKERS. Speeches were made by Butler P. Ander son, Judge J. w. (JIapp, td bhaw, colored. General M. T. Williamson, N. D. Menken, Esq.. Frank Cassels, colored, and others, who announced themselves as in favor of Judge Flippin for mayor. i.d bhaw was glad to see the Democratic party split, and was pleased to see tbe gen tlemen throw off the party yoke. He was loudly cheered by the Flippin men present. although sometime since they regarded Shaw as a bad citizen. Several of the speakers, in order to bolster np Judge flipping aspirations, announced that they "reserved Democracy," and would do as they pleased in the forthcoming elec tion. It is as onishing how men will find excuses for doing that which they wish to do, in politics as in other affairs; the wish ia too often father to the thought. At a late hour the meeting adjourned, and in the best of humor. It might not be amiss to state that nearly one half the audience were Johnson men. We have seen the original of the above, and can vouch for its authenticity. We may aud that we have also had the certified copies of the correspondence between the American judges and their foreign colleagues placed in our hands, and we are satisfied that these gentlemen were actuated solely by a desire to vindicate themselves and protect the public when they published the above protest ; and accompanied it by a forntal and duly certified declaration that tbe "highest honors trere awarded, beyond a doubt or question, to Messrs. Steinway d- Sons'" They also certi fied that they rated certain instruments of other manufacturers higher than the corre sponding styles exhibited by Mr. Albert Weber. Music Trade Review. AMUSEMENTS.
