"The Chemistrv of Character" is Can tain Brown's theme to-night, at Harmonial hail. Monday evening next the Mrs. Oates's comic opera troupe will present the Pretty jrerfumers at the 1 neater. Yesterday afternoon scores of children oiyoyed themselves in Court square, playing with and chasing: the squirrels. The condition of the streets is improv irjjr, thanks t the "clerk of the weather," who is being aided by a small street-torce Friday eveninfr next Mrs. Chanfrau, sup ported by Tayleure's dramatic company, will commence an engagement at the Memphis Theater. Burglariously disposed burglars are burglarizing throughout the city almost nightly. The police force will have to be more on the alert. An order was made yesterday in the chancery court for the sheriff to sell the stock cf groceries of Morris Keuhn, attached by the creditors some days ago. The press excursionists from the coun try towns of the Hoosier State left, for New Orleaus yesterday afternoon, via the Missis si pi and Tennessee railroad. Another large and fashionable audience attended the city hall la?t night and wit nessed the society comedy entitled, "Electing a Chairman and Appointing Committees." At the Theater matinee, to-day, Miss liOuiso Pomeroy will appear as "Rosalind," in As You Like It, and to night she will give a farewell performance as "Lady Macbeth." Waarona from the country drawn by oxen are not an unusual sight in the city at present. The bad roads are too much for horses or mules, and none but oxen can pull through. Two ladies riding around in a baskefc- buegy is the popular and fashionable method of going shopping or taking an airing in this city just now. The buggies are kept for hire at the livery stables. Alderman W. 0. Harvey informs us that on the night when his seat in the aldermanic board was declared vacant he bad his resig nation in his pocket, and would have pre sented it in due time. In another column will be found the offi cial notice of a meeting of the directory of the 1'eoples insurance company, and the declar ing of a dividend of five per cent, upon the capital stoek of the company. Birds of Prev. by Miss M. E. Eraddon : l egends of the Black Watch, by Jas. Grant: Barnabti Budge, by Charles Dickens; and I he Pilot, by J. renimore Cooper, are a tew of the latest editions in Hansford's ten and twenty cents series. At the United States court yesterday the case of Badgettr. Sledge, M'Kay & Co., which had been' on trial for five days, was brought to a close, the jury returning a verdict for the plaintiff and assessing his damages at one dollar. The supreme court of North Carolina, a few days ago, licensed Miss Tabitha Ann Holton, of Guilford county, to practice law in that State. The Asheville Citizen says Tab- ltna Ann is "a most comely young woman, with exceedingly fine parts." She wants a partner. During the past few days there have been several consultations lookinar to the con solidation of St. Lazarus and Grace parishes (Lpiscopal). A decided interest is being manifested by the parishioners, but so far the respective vestry has not arrived at any conclusion. At the criminal court. Mary Jane Ward. colored, was on trial all day yesterday on an indictment charging the larceny of articles of value belonging to a Mrs. Armstrong, a white woman who was mysteriously iound dead in her house some time since. The trial will probably be concluded to-day. Mrs. Dr. Cutter has kindly consented to deliver a free lecture at the Navy Yard mis sion, 93 Promenade street, on Saturday after nooD, at three o'clock, subject: "Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body," illus trated by a life-size French manakin. Ladies interested are cordially invited to attend. This is the year lor elections in Tennes see. In August the judges of the supreme court, circuit judges, attorney-generals, chancellors, and the county officers, sheriff, county court clerk, trustees and register are to be elected. The governor, members of congress, State senators and representatives are to be chosen in November. How to tell your fortune: Lay under your pillow a prayer-book, opened at the matrimonial service, bound round with the garters you wore that day, and a sprig of myr tle on the page that says, "with this ring I thee wed,' and your dream will be ominous, and you will have your fortune as well told as if you had paid a dollar to an astrologer. Try it. The city fathers will assemble again at tbe city hall on next Monday night, at the usual hour, when the reports of the commit tees on salaries and bonds of officers and em ployes, and on rules and regulations, will be presented. The salary bill will take the i-hapo of an ordinance, and will have to pass through three readings. After that comes nominations for office by the mayor. The case of the United States r. Call Henderson, indicted for attempting to pass a fit'ty-dollar counterfeit bill, was on trial yes terday. Colonel Randolph and Captain Walker, who were assigned by Judge Trigg ;.s counsel for the defendant, made a brilliant defense, and argued tbe case in a lengthy and able manner.' Judge Tngg will this morning charge the jury impaneled in the case. Recorder Duff yesterday morning dis posed of the following business: John Jef ferson, misdemeanor, forfeiture $25: John Williams, colored, driving on sidewalk, discharged; Mary Nowland, drunk and dis orderly, discharged; Simon Cameron, mis demeanor, fioed $5; Emma Moore, larceny and arson, continued; bid Williams, misde meanor, forfeiture $25; Felix Peal, wife whipping, fined $20; John Hogan, drunk, Cned $5. The Library dramatic association, which is organized for the benefit of the Odd-Fellows public library, have selected for their next entertainment the romantic drama enti tled, The Denouncer, or Seven Clerk: and for the farce. Perfection, or the Maul of Munster. The time and place for the per formance has not yet been settled upon. They have their regular monthly meeting to night, when it is to be hoped that every member will be present. It seems to be well understood that Mayor T.ippin will nominate General M. T. Wil iiatr.soa (Republican) for the office of comp troller. . Taro years ago Mayor Flippin did the same thing, then withdrew his name and nominated Dr. D. T Porter for the office, but the general council refused to confirm either Eommction, and Comptroller Neweom held over for two years. It is not likely that the present general council, which is Democratic with a few exceptions, will cor. firm the nomi nation of General Williamson, who has been closely identified as a partisan with the Radi cal party since hi advent in this State. In the general council it sesms m if mlh Memphis is getting the lion's hara of offices so tar a mayor and both chairmen of the general council. In the old board North Msmpbis had the chairmanship of the aldar- manic board and South Memphis that of the council manic board. This gave general sat isfaction, but in tbe present general council much dissatisfaction over the so-called "bur ied hatchet" has cropped out already, and the pro-t-ert is that it will continue to crop out luxuriantly, as u were. The Jackson Went Tennessee Whig, of the twenty-fourth instant, state that on Monday evening, about four o'clock, a north bound freight-train on the Chicago, St. Louis and New Oi leans railroad run over a young man netr the Lafayette afreet crossing, in that uty, inflicting injuries from which be died in a few hours. lie gave his name as James Sale, that his father s name was K. A. Sale anil lived at Piano. Texas, fifteen miles above Dallas. He bad left home against his parents' will, and had started to Kentucky to nsit some relatives, bnt bis money giving out. he had determind to return home the best way he could, and was trying to reach the St. Louis and Texas route of travel. He seemed to be under twenty years of age." On Thursday night, a short time before the residence of Major J. J. Murphy, on Beale street, was entered and plundered of 1 .i. 1. . 11 1. r a r jeweiry, tnieves entered tne resiaence or air. Varrington, some squares east on the same street, and plundered the upper rooms while the family was at supper. They became frightened, however, and leaped to the ground from the second story, leaving a jew elry-box full of jewelry on the floor in the room and near the window from which they escaped. The strange fact con reeled with these late robberies is that the doors on the ground floor are always found locked and bolted, as u.foal, which would indicate either that the thieves were secreted in the house or that they secured entrance through the windows. Yesterday afternoon some forty leading merchants and other property owners assem bled at the Flippin executive committee rooms on Monroe street, near Harvey Robinson's, for the purpose of considering the mandamus, funding and tax questions, with a view to se cure some basis of comDromise with the bond holders, and to resist the levy of certain taxes deemed by them illegal. The question of back taxes was also to be considered. Air J. C. Neely presided, and Mr. Hugh Brink- ley acted as secretary. A committee of five was appointed to prepare a report upon the above important subjects, with power to se cure the opinion of lawyers, and to report to an adjourned meeting to be held at the same place this afternoon, at two o clock, bhouid no comDromise or relief be secured, it is prob able that an effort will be made to get the next legislature to "abolish the city charter and to place tne city in tne nanas 01 a re ceiver. Chancellor Morgan was engaged yester day in the hearine of argument of counsel in the case of the State of Mississippi and county of Tunica ex. rel. against W. M. Randolph, administrator of M. J. Manning, deceased, late sheriff whom, it will be remembered, was assassinated in said county about a year ago. The main question involved is as to the ownership of certain funds attached in bank in this city, deposited by Manning as sheriff, being claimed by his widow on the one hand, and by the State and county on the other. The defense is bv nlea and demurrer as to the jurisdiction of the court and the right of the State and county to sue in a btate court; and. further, that the funds arising from the collection of certain illegal tax assessments are not the property of the btate and county. Messrs. Wright & Ellett appear for the plaintiffs, and E. S. Hammond for defend ants. Argument progressing. PERSONAL. The f olio win 2 were visitors at the cotton exchange yesterday : P. H. Buford, Oxford, Mississippi; Levi Hecht, Pocahontas, Arkan sas; W. T. Dortch, Clarksville, Tennessee; J. W. Paramore and W. R. Allen, St. Lbuis. Mr. William Henry, traveling agent for the Appeal, returned home yesterday from a most successful business trip through West Tennessee, Arkansas, north Mississippi and north Alabama. With the people of these States the Appeal stands in high favor, and has a very large circulation. AMUSEMENTS. The Oates Comic Opera Troupe. This com nan v. enpaced to suDDOrt Mrs. Oates, begins an engagement at the Mem phis Theater Tuesday night. The company is composed of the following-artists: Alice Oates, Miss Elma Delaro, Miss Jennie Win ston, Mrs. Clara iisber Maeder, Miss Chap pelle, Miss Orsina, Miss Livingston, Miss Champion, Miss Sylvie, Miss Saenger, Mr. Henry Laurant, Mr. Gustave F. Hall, Mr. Harry Allen. Mr. Arthur H. Belle. Mr. Sey mour, Mr. Iieclerc, Mr. Cotta, Mr. Decker, Mr. Parent, Mr. Nichols, Mr. Mills Hall, and Mr. Kremer. The musical director and con ductor is C. Kerssen. The operas selected for the four performances are La Jolie Par- fumeuse, Girofle Girofla, The Princess of Trebizonde and La Perxchole, the latter con cluding the encatrement Thursday ni&'jt. The sale of seats commences to-day at Hol- lenberg s. aiiaa Louise Pomeroy as "Viola." Last evening quite a large and fashionable audience appeared at the Theater and en joyed an excellent performance of Twelfth flight, or What xou wui. Miss romeroy as "Viola," gave a pretty and artistic presen tation of the very charming role. Her con ception of it was correct, and her acting ev erything to be commended. Of graceful form, and possessing a clear, mellow voice, pleasingly t modulated, she rendered the character excellently well, and deservedly re ceived repeated tributes of hearty applause. it is a question much discussed, whether or not "viola" is the leading role of the play. It certainly is the leading female role, and without it Twelfth Night would be like Zfam let with the part of " Hamlet" omited. The play, according to Charles Knight and other Shakespearean editors or commenta tors, runs over with imagination and wit, in which high poetry is welded with intense fun. Miss Anna Story, as "Lady Olivia," was not sufficiently spirited at times for the delicate role. The heavier scenes she pre sented much better. The "Sir Andrew Aguecheek," of Mr. Theo. Hamilton; the "Sir loby Belch, ot Mr. Geo. Den ham; the "Malvolio," of Mr. Charles Waverly. were excellent indeed, seldom better presented upon the provincial stage, as it is called in i.,Tw x(.a auu uuaivu. JUI, UOllUUf M LUC "Clown," Miss Cbarliene Medonan. as "Ma rie," presented these roles commend ably and pleasingly, ine minor roles were, like wise, rendered in a manner that add ed attraction to the play as a whole. The Ford company is the best that has been in our city for years. At the matinee to-day, As xou Like It, with Miss Pomeroy as "Rosalind," will be reproduced by particular request, it being regarded as Miss Pomeroy's very best role, but to our mind, her "Viola" is preferable as a piece of Shakespearean comedy acting. To-night the engagement will close, with a presentation of Macbeth. LAW REPORTS. Cnaaeery Court Morgan, J adze. Call of motion day continued this morning. Criminal Court loaT wood. Judge.

He asked the aid of the board dunntr his term of office, and with their assistance he would endeavor to perform the duties of the office with fairness and impartiality. Dr. Goodvear said that he expressed his thanks to his friends who voted for him for twenty-seven consecutive ballots. He would say nothing as to what produced the change to-nifirht. lie thought tne least saia aoout it the better. He would do his utmost for the interest of his ward constituents and, also, for the interest of the citizens of every ward in the citv. He hoped that the strife and bitterness of the past contest would be buried for ever, and he pledged himself to give his support to the present chairman and the mayor ot tbe city. I Applause. J Chairman Kortrecht stated that a commit tee on credentials ought to be appointed. Mr. Bates moved that a committee of three be appointed on credentials: The chairman appointed Messrs. Bates, Goodvear and Bnnkley as such committee. The committee conferred for a few minutes and reported that all the members certified as elected by the sheriff were duly elected as members ot the council. Dr. Goodyear stated that the report was not exactly correct. Ihe committee should state that the members present are those who were embraced in the return of the Bhenff. and also that these members are duly quali fied. Tbe chairman stated that the committee could only report as to the return of the shentt. The report of the committee was received and filed. Mr. Bohan offered a resolution that a com mittee of five be appointed on salaries of city officers and employes, ihe resolution was carried. Mr. Fisher moved that a committee on bon Is be appointed. Carried. Chairman Kortrecht said he had a list for both committees already ' prepared. ' He reached over and took from his hat the pre pared lists which had been cut and dried in advance for the happy occasion. This give away of the little game by the innocent chairman caused immense laughter, which was not enjoyed by the Flippin men who put up the job of brace for the appointments. The lists were read, when Mr. Bohan, who offered the resolution to appoint the commit tee on salaries, arose and expressed his sur pnse at not being on the committee. Chair man Kortrecht excused himself, and had Mr. Bohan's name placed on the list. The com mittee on salaries is as follows: Messrs. Bo-- ban. Fisher. Lawhorn, Rogers and Crosby. The committee on bonds is as follows: Messrs. Fisher, Goodyear, Bates, Snowden and Woods. A deputy United States marshal appeared and mandamused the council to the amount of $90,306 20. The following committee was appointed on rules and regulations: Messrs. Bates, Ryan, Quentel, Renkert, Proudfit. JOINT SESSION. Mayor Flippin sent in the following mes sage, which was read and received, after which the joint session dissolved: Mayor's Office, Crrr Hall, 1 Memphis, Tknm.. January 25, 1878. f To the Honorable General Council: Called again by the voice of the people to the mayoralty. I can enter upon the discharge of its duties with a more hopeful heart than' at the commencement ot my last term. A better future, I am now assured, awaits us if, as faithful ministers of the people, we keep but one object steadily in view the immedi ate and ultimate good of the city. What ever asperities may have been engendered by an exciting canvass should at once pass away and be forgotten. Other and better objects than keeping alive resentments, if such are entertained, now address themselves to the wisdom and consideration of this legislative body. 1 invoke a spirit of harmony in all our deliberations, for, without this, our efforts will prove 1 utile in the accomplishment ot good. In becoming members of this coun cil you make sacrifices without any compen sation lor your labors. Ihe inquiry each should propound to himself should be, "How shall I act so as to bring back prosperity to this place i There must be an organized, har monious effort to effect this end. Factions destroy each other, and disappoint the proper expectations of our people. Each should thoroughly study the municipal situation, familiarize himself with the charter and ordinances of the city. In the selection of the officers and agents of the city, great care should be taken, so that these places may be most worthily filled. The success of any administration depends in a great measure unon the honesty and capability ot its agents. To get such in official positions, so as to sub serve the public good, y u should, if neces sary, ignore personal friendships; the city should now be first in view, sinking all sel fish considerations in a common and united effort for its good gtvernment. 1 enion upon you with an emphasis the cultivation of a spirit ot harmony ana gooa leuowsnip, inat your labors may redound to the well-being of our beloved city. These are the solemn obli gations taken this night, and I am sure you will observe them, let us now be co-iaoorers in municipal reform and management, and , the resuult of our co-operation will soon ap pear in the bettering of our situation. For satisfactory reasons, I am not now prepared, as I hope to do at an early day, to review our municipal history for the last two years, and make such suggestions as I think advisable, touching the proper ad ministration of ou affairs lor the present term. X our nrst duty, after organization, is to appoint a committee on offices and salaries. Upon the subject of salaries, I suggest that in fix ing these, the labors and responsibilities should be duly considered. I have nothing more at this time to say, but conclude by congratulating the city upon having such representatives, who by reason ot their char acter and antecedents, promise so well for its future good. Very respectfully. j. a jfLLPPiM, Mayor. On motion the board of councilmen ad journed over to Monday night next, at half- past seven o ciocsr. .

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. Haw Oil Coald be Thrown 1'pon the Tra bled. Water. Editors Appeali As the smoke of battle has passed away, and the popular nrve has become quiet arid steady, let us take a calm survey of the situation, and uim up the re sults and speculate upon the future political aspect. It was argued by the Flippiuites that there were no politics involved in th contest, and many were thus in ! iced to re pudiate the Democratic noniut,, 1 to with the Independents, and rruny of tlieni now ay that this breach wsl! m' have any effect upon the election in August next. If this be true, then the Radicals will bo ad!y disap pointed, for they pubheiy announced that they cared nothing for F'ippin. bnt only wanted to break up the damned D--i.. cratic party; and wi- all know that they were look ing forward to August, when, by tbe disrup tion of that party, they expected to capture the good fat offices then to be parceled out. They will accomplish this, too, if we do not go right to work now and check 111 ate them. Mr. Flippin is now giddy and crazed with bis victory, supple m 'iited by the hundreds of hungry office seekers buzzing in his ears, and my word for it, lfi less than ten days -he will be the hardest-cursed and the best-abused man in Mem Dhis. There are many who will sav to the disappointed: "I told you so. Did he not go back on me and others two years ago f Did he not forget me so soon as elected ?" etc But will Flippin encourage that spirit of har mony and conciliation which his friends now are wont to express? or, in other words, forget the past and deal justly with the men who supported tne Democratic nominee and give us an earnest thereof by presenting to the board the names ot honest,- good men for of fice, regardless of their action in the late con test r Or will he endeavor to pay the Radical party (to which he ows his election) in the offices which belong of right to the people, and not to him ? Let us wait and see. His action will demonstrate whether or not he and his friends desire to bndga the chasm. Will he show his manhood, and rise above his little, petty jealousies, and claiming to be the citizen's candidate, carry out what that mean 8, and nomiuate men ac ceptable to the citizens, regardles of their choice for mayor in the last election ? He has it in his power to do more to heal the breach and bring the better political elements together than any man ever possessed in Memphis, and if he fails aud refuses to exert it to that end, then woe is he. and farewell to Democracy in Shelby county. I want no office, and will not recommend any one, but I would modestly suggest that Mr. Flippin give to the common council the names eay of two or three ot the best candidates lor each of the several offices and, let them choose their preference; where it could be done, let one be a representative man o! each ot toe three divisions or parties. If the council have this opportunity, then no one should complain of the result. The provision in the charter giving the mayor the nominating power is unwise and monarcnial,. subversive of popular rights, and, theref -re,' should be shorn of its obnoxious operation by a liberal exercise thereof by the mayor. Ihe hope, and sometimes promise, ot nomina tion often works shameless corrup tion by bribery, perjury, and kindred violations of the law, and all bese offices should be filled by the council, without the lordly dictation of the mayor. I, for one, am anxious to heal up the sores, bridge the chasm, forget past personal differences where principles were not invoivea, organize anew, and put our shoulders together, and in Au gust and November next roll up onu of those old-fashioned victories, nil all offices with good, honest and competent men, and bury forever tbe ' Radical fossil that clogs the wheels of progress, not only in bhelby, but throughout the whole couutry. umtwmi.

By patronizing this sale you do not have to pay 50 per cent, advance on cost, but you can buy them 40 per cent, less than other dealers pay. Remember this fact when you need boots and shoes.

Nchenck's Pulmonic fyrup, Sen Weed Tonic and Mandrake These deservedly celebrated and popular medicines have effected a revolution in the healing art, and proved the fallacy of several niaxiru8 which have for many -years obstruct ed the progress of medical science. The false supposition that "consumption is incurable" deterred physicians from attempting to find remedies for that disease, and patients afflict ed with it reconciled themselves to death without making an effort to escape from a doom which they supposed to be unavoidable. It is now proved, however, that Consumption can bp cured, and that it has been cured in a very great number of cases (some of thorn ap parently desperate pnee) by Schenck's pul monic syrup alone; and in other cases by the same medicine in connection with Schenck's sea weed tonic and mandrake piils, one or both, according to tho requirements of the case. Dr. Schenck himself, who eiy'oyed uninterrupted good health for more ' than forty years, was supposed o.t one time to be at the very gate of death, his physicians hav ing pronounced his case hopeless, and aban doned him to his fate. He was cured by the aforesaid medicines, aud, since hi recovery, many thousands similarly affected have used Dr. Schenck's preparations with the same re markable success. Full directions accompany each, making it not absolutely necessary to personally see Dr. Schenck unless patients wish their lengs examined, and for Ibis pur pose he is professionally at his principal office, corner Sixth and Arch streets, Philadelphia, every Monday, where all letters for advice must be addressed. Schenck's medicines are sold by all druggists.
