It seems to be well understood that Mayor

the general council refused to confirm either
Eommction, and Comptroller Neweom held

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

isfaction, but in tbe present general council
much dissatisfaction over the so-called "bur

the pro-t-ert is that it will continue to crop
out luxuriantly, as u were.

Varrington, some squares east on the same

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
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.

The Oates Comic Opera Troupe.
This com nan v. enpaced to suDDOrt Mrs.
Oates, begins an engagement at the Mem

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-

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.

At half-past seven o'clock last evening the
board of councilmen assembled at tbe city
hall, twenty members being present. Mr
Bates, temporary chairman, ordered the roll
called. Mr. Hates said that the nrst tbing
in order was the election of a permanent
chairman. Mr. Goodvear. ot the first ward.
and Mr. Fisher, of the sixth ward, being the
candidates before the council.
Mr. Fisher said his name had been before
the council serveral times on Thursday night,
and he now withdrew his name in favor of
Mr. Charles Kertrecht.

Chairman Bales announced that the coun
cil had elected Mr. Kortrecht as permanent
On motion of Dr. Goodyear the election of
Mr. Kortrecht was made unanimous.
Messrs. Hughs and Bohan were appointed
to conduct Mr. Kortrecht to tne cnair.
Chairman Kortrecht expressed his thanks
to the board for the honor conferred upon
him. 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
Tbe chairman stated that the committee
could only report as to the return of the
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

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.

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.

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.

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.
