MoCALLUM, Agent FRAME RESIDENCE A desirable 2-story frame residence, comer cf Linden and St Martin "boys" had to beein early to drink cocktails. In order to drive away the headaches and "brace up," as It Is caned. The effect oi too much "unnstmas" was generally slept off last night and to-day things will go on as usual. Scores of deep drinkers who took too much have pledged themselves not to drink any more for one year. Others have postponed the pledge until New Year's day, and still others have maue pledges not to drink at a saloon, but to drink onl at their homes or rooms. The number of half- drunken men and youths on the streets Christmas night was very large. At half past three o'clock on Sunday morning Mr. u. w. wells, produce mercnant, on Front row, was aroused from sleep, at his home, by hearing a burglar removing a slat from the shutters and opening them. Tbe window was on the ground floor, and close to the bed on which Mr. Wells was lying. That sentleman. with admirable coolness. felt for the pistol lying under his pillow. As be moved to do so his eye caught that of tbe borglar. a white man, within a few Inches of his own. The scoundrel was looking within, to see how matters stood.

W. L. Crook, secretari'; James Ainswonh. StddU and Saber; Bedford Forrest, tbe urglariou8 habits. In a circular issued by the officers of the First Presbyterian church, of Nashville, they have this to aay regarding Indulgence In worldly amusements- " If our officers are well aware that there are some of our members who are doing all they can, and even more than their share, who eat their bread oi carefulness, and even deny themselves or tne comforts of life, that they may make their regular weekly contributions to the Master's cause: and some, who. In other days, were abundantly able to devise liberal things for the Redeemer's kingdom, are now. In the providence of God, reduced In their circumstances so that they cannot contniHite as uiey once did. And while we know that tbe net Income of every one has been, by the stringency of the times, reduced from ten to fifty per cent in the last few years sun, alter making due allowance ior an tnese thlnirs. we are forced to believe that there are among members of our church and congregation many who come very short or doing wnat tne Muster requires or them whose contributions to the church, as com pared with the amount expended for follies, luxu ries, etc.. are only the merest trine. If the cigars which are smoked, and the tobacco that Is chewed. the candy and the toys that are consumed, In our cnuren, could be condensed into casn, ana thrown Into the contribution basket every Sabbath leaving out of view the amounts squandered weekly for tho more expensive luxuries, follies and vices our emp ty treasury would be full to overflowing. I he trouble Is our people do not cultivate habits of strict econ omy. Thev do not oractlce that rltcld self-denial which they should. They do not cherish that spirit or liberality and generosity to the cnuren wmcn should ever distinguish the servants of God. They need to have new lessons taught them In regard to these christian duties. If our church members are allowed to frequent, unrestrained, theaters, public hails, German dances, and other worldly and exuen slve amusements, we may be sure that the contilbu- aoDS to tne cause pi winst wui languisn." Savs the Nashville Union and American, ot the twenty-fifth: "One of the noted 'Moiett reg isters,' by which It Is proposed to tax drinks In Ten nessee, was on exhibition yesterday at the omce or the eomntroller and secretary of state. In the cad- tol. There are no doubts about it being a genuine 'Moffett' as u was brought here from over the Blue Ridge by a gentleman yesterday. As this Instrument would be a common article in Tennessee politics. If tbe bill Is passed a tew words of description may not be entirely out of place. The register Is encloseU In an Iron box about ten inches in length by four In depth and width, on the front is an elongated aiai. upon which are marked faces, each of which Is marked off Into numoered spaces from one to ten. The first face has underneath It tbe word ten, the next one hundred, the third one thousand, tbe fourth ten thousand, the fifth one hundred thousand, and the sixth one million. At the reverse of the register Is a small crank, which is to be turned around every time a drink Is taken. This causes the hand on tbe first face to turn to the figure one, the second revolu tion changes it to two. and so on until tbe eleventh revolutl'Hi places the figure-hand back at cypher, and tne ngure oi tne second - iace to one. Each siieeeedfrig revolution ' revolves the figure-hand of the first face, and the l ev olutions of the second make oae revolution of the third, and so on. tbe eleventh revolution of each figure hand musing tbe figure hand on the pre vious one to assume its oruinai revolution, the register is thus capable of marking one million drinks. Tbe inside arrangement sf the register Is very simple, ana is easily , explained. The crank communicates with a series of six cogs, one In front of each of the faces, and their action Is similar to the force exerted In a turbine wator-wbeeL When the crank Is turned around once, it can slip but one cog, and must await another revolution to proceed. This is done In order to prevent a continuous revolution from going on. Every time tbe wheel turns a gong sounds loud enough to be heard a coaslderable dis tance yesterday, every one wno came in tne on ices at the Capitol sounded the gong several times And late In Uie afternoon the register showed that aix thousand one hundred Umes had a drink been, or should have been taken, bo far as can be learned from members of the general assembly, there la no strong proba bility of the registry bill being pasawcl-at least not in its present snape." agents here have generally, when coming to the btate. gone by way oi inasnvuie, ana men nerore they could reach this city have been persuaded to look at other places, finally sttllng in some other part of the State, and so West Tennessee lost her Immigrants, and Memphis agents got discouraged. Since I have been In Memphis I bave watched the Immigration movement from an outsider's stand-point, and I find that numbers ot men come here from all parts, who, If properly handled, and this advantages of theseetlon as to its fertility of soil, road and water communications, laid well before them; could be Induced to settle without much difficulty. Tbe men I mean are men of small means, who would rent or purchase small farms or wild land, but who have not the means of taking hold of large bodies. To settle such men as those are beneficial, and for that purpose I would suggest to tbe owners of large bodies of land that they divide their land into small portions say Into bodies of from forty acres upward as my experi ence has shown me that where one Immigrant wants a large tract of land, there are fifty requiring small ones. The prices that can be obtained for the small sections will ever and above pay for the dividing of the land. I find one firm In this city rrho are doing a great deal to bring Immigration to this part, and who will eventually complete a good work. I refer to the firm of Lonsdale A Co., of it West Court street; but as that firm, by Itself, could not do so much as If assisted by tbe land-owners. I would suggest to the latter that they send to that firm a full and fair description of what lands they have for rent or sale, and the lowest price they will accept for the same. This would enable that firm to place before the pub lic a full and correct statement of tbe vacant lands In this section. I do not single out this firm for the purnose of advertising them, but because that Is the only one I know, of acting In any extended way In the - Immigration movement In this city. As another means of carrying for ward this movement, I would suggest that some of your leading men form an association for that purpose, and bring their Influence to bear upon me various raiiroaas, steam Doats ana noceis to obtain a reduction In tbe fares to those coming to this section, either prospecting or Intending to settle, obtain a description of what lands there are for rent or sale, and spread that Information well In the north and west and they will, In a short time, cause the tide of Immigration to flow Into west Tennessee. Such an association would not only prove of great benefit to those in this section of the State, but to the land-owners ot north Mississippi: so let them join in the movement, if you like. Now is a good time for you to get your lands colonized. Strike whilst the Iron Is hot Northern and western men are coming south In search of homes, and, by a combined effort, these men can be secured for this district Think of this, and act at once. Anoloelzlne for so long a communication, but trusting vou will Insert It as It may Drove of some benefit to the landowners of this section, I am, re spectfully yours, B. W. HICKLING.

Sehenck's Mandrake Pills Will bo found to Dossess those Qualities nec essary to the total eradication of all bilious attacks, prompt to start the secretions of the liver, and give a healthy tone to the entire system. Indeed, it is no ordinary discovery in medical science to have invented a remedy for these stubborn complaints, which develop' all the results produced by a heretofore free use of calomel, a mineral justly dreaded by mankind, and acknowledged to be destruc tive in the extreme to the human system. That the properties of certain vegetables comprise all the virtues of calomel without its injurious tendencies, is now an admitted fact, rendered indisputable by scientific re searches; and those who use the Mandrake pills will be fully satisfied that the best med icines are those provided by nature in the common herbs and roots of the fields. These Sills open thefbowels, and correct all bilious erangements without salivation or any of J the injurious ettects of calomel or other pois ons. The secretion of bile is promoted by these pills, as will be teen by the altered col or of tbe stools, and disappearing of the sal low complexion and cleansing ot the tongue. Ample directions for use accompany each box of pills. Prepared only by J. H.
