Memphis contains fifty-eight churches, of which twenty-four belong to the colored people. There is a church to every eight hundred and twenty-eight inhabitants. Memphis ranks as the largest interior cotton market not only in the United States, but ot the world, and handles on an averaee one-tenth of the entire cotton crop of the United States. The chamber of commerce and cotton exchange have had published, in pamphlet form, for general distribution, the proceed ings of the recent Southern Pacific railway meetings held in this city. The aggregate yearly business of Mem phis in cotton, merchandise and manufac tures, amounts to $68,298,750; cotton, $20, 755,330; merchandise, $43,070,920, and man ufactured articles, $5,472,500.

It was reported at the police stationhouse last night that, on yesterday morning, two men were struca uy iignuung, ana Kiiiea, while at work in the country, some few miles south of the city. No particulars could be learned as to the matter last night. The young lady. Miss Maud Rogers, who was a passenger on board the steamer James Howard, en route Irom at. Louis to V icks burg, and who mysteriously disappeared in this city on Monday last, was discovered last night at Miss Lizzie Robinson's bagnio, Iso. 153 Main street. The white population of Memphis, ac cording to the laXe'JHreciory census, w'thirty two thousand three hundred and eighty-six, and the colored population fifteen thousand six hundred and eighty-two. loe popuia tion of the city has increased only six hun dred and eighty-three since last year. The first anniversary ball by the Phoenix club was given Tuesday night at Mxnner- cnor nail, wnicn was arusucaiiy uecoraieu with evergreens and flowers. The ladies presented a bouauet to every member of the club, which is composed of sixteen of our well-known young Jewish citizens. At half-past one o'clock this morning a bright light reflected against the storm clouds in a southwesterly direction, which proved to be the burning of a building in Fort Pickering. The engines did not go down, except, probably, the engine on Main, near South street. Owing to the storm and the lateness of the hour, no particulars could be obtained. The Mollie Moore arrived in port last niffht with the following list for Memphis 510 barrels flour, 50 barrels meal, 150 half barrels flour, 643 sacks corn, oUb sacks oats, 50 casks bacon, 422 pieces meat, 40 tierces lard, 15 half-barrels lard, 650 buckets lard, 25 cases salmon, 485 barrels pork, 28 bags potatoes and b boxes eggs. The fire started yesterday morning on Monroe street by the chief of police created no alarm in the fire department, nor did the engines or hook and ladder-truck turn oat to save the property, consisting of gambling house furniture, which was entirely con sumed. Our reporter could not discover that there was insurance on the stun. The special deputy-constable of shooting proclivities, and who threatens to cowhide the reporters of the press, should scan the actual weight ot every reporter, then com mence with the smallest man and cowhide his way up to the heaviest. This would be a pleasant spring and summer business for him. The directors of the Masonic Temple re quest the Masons, stockhockholders and citi zens to meet them at the Masonic hall, in Odd- Fellows building, to-morrow evening at half- past seven o crock, to hear a lull report of the condition of the Masonic Temple, and to devise ways and means to rescue it from debts and to continue and complete its construc tion. The population of the city, according to the Directory census-taker, is forty-eight thou sand and sixty-eight. This disproves the correctness ot the last municipal election re turns by several thousands; consequently an immense amount of fraudulent voting must have then taken place. According to the vote cast at that election Memphis ought to have a population ot nearly sixty thousand. Another "Richmond" in the field, this time in the person of Richmond Pcttus, who knocks at the chancery portals for the relief ot his wounded and lacerated feelings, lie complains that his mate, Laura Pettus, has left her nestling tor greener pastures, the court can scarce resist the temptation to at once relieve Richmond and place him in a position to be yet rendered happy in his old age. The emigration to and thronsrh Arkansas is not altogether regarded by the citizens of that fetate as a blessing. An Arkansas ex change states as follows: "It is our duty to say at the outset that Arkansas is not a large almshouse, where people are fed and clothed gratitously, nor do we wish to convey the idea that a livelihood can be secured without an effort. Any who indulge in such illusions had better remain where they are. What is wanted is muscle, capital, industry, brains, ana common honesty. At the temperance meeting on Jefferson street, last night, a large and appreciative audience assembled. Eighty-nine names were added to the list of teetotellars. Dona' tions were received by a committee to engage the Greenlaw Operahouse for next week. Every night during the week meetings will be held, and every day, from twelve to one o clock, a prayer-meeting will be held, all un der the management of Mr. Prosser, of Bowl ing Green. Kentucky. The ladies of Mem phis are taking a very active part in these meetings. Thirty names have been reported for next Friday night, to be initiated in Shel by lodge, No. 650, of Good Templars. Ev erybody is invited. The podtmaster-general has issued an order amending the regulation of the de partment governing the transmission of printed matter, which is very important in its bearings, inasmuch as it overrules a long established practice in the department. Heretofore nothing but a business card was permitted upon the wrapper of printed mat ter. The postmaster-general now has given instructions that any matter in print which may be transmitted within the inclosure may also be transmitted at the same rate if print ed upon the wrapper or envelope. This in cludes business cards, directions for return ing, and any printed matter on the outside of the wrapper or envelope. Postmasters, however, are instructed not to regard re quests for the return of such matter unless stamps to pay return postage are deposited. At the circuit court of Shelby county, yesterday, the' following divorce petitions were filed: Amy Jackson filed a petition against Henry Jackson, colored, alleging as grounds for divorce, incontinency, cruel treat ment, etc; she prays to be permitted to re sume her maiden name, Amy Lewis. R. O'Brien filed a petition against Julia O'Brien, alleging, as grounds for divorce, that they intermarried in October, 1876, in this city; that defendant is addicted to drunkenness; would break up the house furniture generally, and ruined his business as a confectioner, etc.; he prays for a divorce, the custody of his child, and for general relief, etc. The court ordered the child to be taken from Julia O'Brien and placed in the custody of Mrs. Bridget Steele, to await the result of the liti gation tor divorce, and the order of the court. The commissioner of internal revenue has decided that on and after May 1, 1878, a cigar factory or place where cigars can be made for sale must be an entire room, separated by walls and partitions from all other part of the building, and that the fac tory or place of manufacture, designated and described on form 36, cannot be used, nor can any portion thereof, even though marked off or separated from the remainder by a railing, counter, bench, screen or curtain, be used as a store where the manufacturer can sell his cigars otherwise than in legal boxes, properly branded, labeled and stamped. When a cigar manufacturer has a store in a room adjoining his factory, a door and win dows may be allowed between the factory and store; and if necessary for light or ven tilation, the upper portion of the partition between the factory and store may be of glass or wire-cloth. At a meetine of the directors of the Memphis and Charleston railroad, held yes terday at their depot, the following officers were present: R. T. Wilson, president; O. M. M Ghee, vice-president: Georce P. Bierne. J. C. Neely and Napoleon Hill, directors. The object of this meeting was to hear a proposition from the board ot directors ot the Memphis and Holly Springs railroad, looking to a connection at UolnervUle, lennessee. The board of directors of the Memphis and Holly Springs railroad was represented by Judge J. W. Clapp and Mr. Watson, of Holly Springs. While no definite action was taken, the proposition was most favorably received, and there is no doubt but what some satisfac tory arrangements will soon be completed which will place Memphis in direct commu nication with Holly Springs, via Collierville. The proposed route was most favorably com mented upon by bhentf Anderson, who, to gether with General W. Y. C. Humes and Majjr J. P. Gentry, of Collierville, were present by special invitation. The road can be built and started in operation for two hun dred and fifty thousand dollars. If Holly Springs will raise fifty thousand dollars, and Memphis one hundred thousand dollars, it is asserted that Colonel Wilson and his associ ates will raise the other hundred thousand dollars.

TWO VILLAINS. Launched into Eternity bj One Trip of the Hangman's Trap ThelBrassell Brothers, Two Deep-Dyed Vil lains, Expiate their Murder ous Misdeeds at Cooke Till?, Tenn. Their Confession of Jilne Murders and Numberless Other Crimes that will Never be Divulged History f the Crime for which they were Hanged. One of the Gang Turns State's Evidence, upon whose Testimony the Brassels are Convicted Their Fruitless Appeal to Gov. Porter Itc, Special to the Appeal. Nashville, March 27. A Cookeville special to the American says the Brassell brothers were executed at half-past one o'clock to-day in the presence of about eight or ten thousand spectators. They were taken from the jail by Sheriff conannon, piacea in a wagon containing their coffins, on which they sat, and were conducted to the place of execution, abont bait a mile southwest ol the town, in an open held, attordin? all the spectators full view of the scaffold. The wagon was guarded from the jail by about one hundred and fifty men, who had been summoned for the purpose by the sher iff. Jhey took position around the scaffold. Following close behind the waeron containing the prisoners were a sister and brother on horseback. The former remained near the scaffold throughout the entire proceedings, and, though visibly affected. witnessed the heartrending spectacle with the nerve which characterized the conduct of their doomed brothers. Joe Brassell said: "Gentlemen and Ladies I will speak a few words to you if you will give me your attention, l am here to-day, and what is it for? Murder! What were the causes of it? They were whisky, hard-seek ing after money and associating with drunken, reckless boys, and there are hundreds here to-day. I will give you some advice, ooys let wnisKy aione. Above all things, have nothing to do with whisk v. Take warning by this. It brought me herein this fix, and you are all liable to be put in this condition by following the same course. Young men, take warning and be good to one another; go to meet mg and keep the Sabbath holy. Farewell to you all; meet me in heaven." Teek said: "This is a solemn hour.llt is told me I must die. I am ready, waitincr. prepared, and willing to die." After quite a long pause, he resumed with the remarks: " I hope to meet you all in heaven." He remained facing the crowd for some minutes, as if in' tending to say more, but made no further re mark. Both the criminals spoke without em barrassment, and with no tremor in their voices. As leek hnished speaking, Mr. Is bell, the tax-collector whom the two brothers expected to rob at the time the murder of Russell Allison was committed, and who is the present husband of the boys' mother, approached the scatiold, and shook hands with the prisoners, who appeared to be rather pleased at his presence. He asked Joe, "Were you not at my house the night the murder was committed?" Joe said, "I was theft, and I am guilty." Teek avowed his innocence with the same empha sis as befort, and said he knew nothing about it; that his life had been sworn away. Here the deputy-sheriff, Joe Backman. read the opinion ot the supreme court and the death sentence in the case of the Brassells. One o'clock was closely approaching, and the sheriff, assisted bv Sheriff Doon. of DeKalb. commenced preparing the men for the rope, by tying their wrists and ankles, putting on the fatal cap, which in this instance was white, and finally - placing" the noose around their necks, after which they embraced each other with as much fervor as their peculiar circumstances would permit. At ten min utes after one o'clock, as the sheriff was about to let the drop fall, the prisoners said they would like to have the ropes and caps taken off if further time would be allowed them. The sheriff said he would give them, if desired, the full time allowed by the law. Joe gazed around upon the crowd, and said. "Boys. let this be a warning to you.' John Baker, a cousin of the Brussels, here had a brier interview with them upon the scaffold. Joe told him that he was guilty. Teek still insisted that he was not guilty. Mr. Isbell again appeared at the scaffold, and urged Teek to tell the whole truth. Teek "I was just getting ready to tell the truth. Hear, you all! 1 die an innocent man, and for what others did." Mr. Isbell then asked Joe, "Was Teek there that night?" This was just as the cap was being replaced over Joe's head. Joe simply whis pered, "Don't press me on that." Teek spoke again: "Undersstand me; you have got the truth." Mr. Ishell still persisted in the effort to in duce Joe to say whether Teek was at his house the night of the murder, but there came ttrong expressions of disapproval from the crowd, several of whom cried: "Don't push him." Teek said: "Let us know when the time is out, and when you go to cut the rope." The sheriff "You have only five minutes." Teek here drew himself down as if to test the strength of the rope. Both men expressed great anxiety that they should fall far enough to break their necks. Teek's last words were, "Lord, have mercy on those who swore my lite away, land Joe s were, "Oh. Jesus be with me right now." Exactly at half past one o'clock the rope was cut, and the platform fell, and in one and a half minutes ail muscular contraction naa ceasea, there being no sign of life except a feeble beat of the pulse. In eleven min utes the attending physicians - pro nounced them idead. They were cut down, placed in the coffins, and delivered to the brother and sister, who were there for the purpose of receiving the bodies. TEEK CONF38ES HAVING COMMITTED NINE MURDERS. During the religious services, yesterday. Teek Brassell took a big swig of whisky, and warned young men against its use. As he had but a short time to live, he said he would get all the good out of it he could. He confessed having shot nine men, and that him self and brother had committed crimes that would never be made known. Joseph Bras sel said he had beaten a woman almost to death on account of a quarrel about a water melon, and then shot her dead. Teek asked the sheriff to hang them on the spot picked out by them five years ago for that purpose. INTERESTING PARTICULARS. The hanging of the Brassell brothers has been the sensation of the week in this portion of Tennessee. The case excited universal in terest, from the extreme youth of the crimi nals and the report that they were to be res cued by their brothers and friends before the gallows should ever claim its victims. On this account exeat precaution was observed in the tras portion of the prisoners from the Nashville jail to the place of execution, and a large guard of armed men taken along to prevent any such contretemps. After the prisoners arrived at the Cookeville jail, it was found that the general feeling was strong against them, and the citizens were ready to prevent any attempt at rescue. THE CRIME of the Brassells was the killing of Russell Allison, a young man about nineteen years of age, on the night of November 29, 1875, which had followed closely upon other out rages, purporting to have been committed by men calling themselves kuklux. The father of Joseph D. and George A., otherwise called Teek Brassell, operated an illicit still in Put nam county, ana had himself been under in dictment for the offense. With the influ ences that surrounded them, the boys grew np wild and reckless, and hesitated not to go into any perilous adventure, of any nature whatever. On the night of the murder two men of unscrupulous character, named Dob son Johnson and Doll Bates, arrived at the still, and to them the Brassells unfolded a plan by which they could get possession of about four thousand dollars. TBI PLAN was to go to the house of James Isbell, who was stepfather to Russell Allison, and rob the tax-collector of Putnam county, U. J. Isbell, of his money. The four men went over to James Brassell's, an elder brothsr of the criminals, and, together with him, perfected their arrangements to go that night and make the robbery. Teek Brassell said he knew there was four thousand dollars, and also was certain that Isbell was expected that night. Three of the men desired to postpone the expedition, but the other said he would not be able to be on hand at another time. They therefore concluded to go, James Bras sell Baying he could not go with them, for fear his wife would have suspicions of what was going on, from his absence. They ac cordingly returned to his borne, leaving Joe and Teek Brassell, Dobson Johnson and Doll Bates to go to Isbell's, as they bad planned. Joe anl Teek went by their father's and obtained some red flannel short coats, which opened in front, a box of black ing and several pistols. Johnson and Bates waited for them, and when they returned, helped them besmear their faces with the blacking. By this time it was quite late, and the men hurried an to the place of their destination. Arrived there they gava a loud shout, awakened the inmates of the house, and in answer to an inquiry as to who was there, Teek Brassell answered : MANSFIELD HOWARD, AND THREE OTHER MEN, BV GOD." Mrs. Isbell, who, with another young woman, was sleeping in the lower room, said she knew Mansfield Howard did not swear. Russell Allison, who was in the room above, now called out that "it was only the Brassel boys; don't be frightened." Mrs. Isbell told him he would have to come down then, and let them in. Allison came down, and, lighting a candle, opened the door for the midnight visitors. Teek and Joe Bras sell rushed in, Bates and Johnson lingering about the door. Teek seized Russell Allison, and as they scuffled Russell cried, "Don't do so, Teek." Several shots were fired as the two men struggled back and forth across the floor, and Russell finally retreated into the dining-room, adjoining Mrs. Isbell's bed-room. As he passed through the door other shots were fired from the pistols held by the Brassels. Joe stood at the foot of Mrs. Isbell's bed, and when that lady raised up he cocked his pistol on her, causing her to shriek, fall back into the bed, and cover her head with the bed-clothing. HE FIRED INTO THE BED, cutting quilts and blankets with the ball, which fell to the floor next morning. Teek and Joe now left the house, and, as they de parted, Russell Allison returned from the dining-room, and said: "Angie, I am shot, and the Brassell bays are the ones that shot me." He was fataally wounded in the bow els, and survived thirty-six hours. Before his death he testified to numbers of persons that Joe and Teek Brassell were his murder ers. On the evening of the next day they were arrested, John Allison, brother of Rus sell, going with the party to make the arrest. Joe, aione, was at the still-house, and he was told that they had a warrant against him for stilling. Presently leek put in an appear ance. Then they were told that they were suspected ot having shot liussell Allison the night before. Then it was that Teek resisted, and closing with John Allison, found oppor tunity to fire off his pistol, mortally wound ing Allison. He was then seized by the other men, and, after Allison had been placed in the still-house, by the fire, the prisoners were marched off. and detained to await the ver dict of the coroner's jury at the inquest of Russell Allison, as well as ot John Allison, who died the same night on which he was wounded. THE ALLISONS were looked upon by the community as very fine young mea.and their death was sincerely regretted, while the Brassells were very much condemned for their crimes. They had their trial before the Putnam county criminal court, and were sentenced to pay the costs ot the court and to be HANGED BT THE NECK until they were dead, on the ninth day of August, ls7b. ror his second crime leek Brassell was sentenced to twenty years im prisonment in the penitentiary. His twenty years will be spent very quietly indeed, but it will not be in the penitentiary. From the decree of the criminal court the prisoners took an appeal to the supreme court, at IN ash' ville. and were removed to the Nashville jail Ham tliov rom o l r Ql n nf ii Vi nr tmlr fliAti- loaf. trip up the Cumberland on board the Celina. While in jail they sought to relieve the mo notony ot their confinement by repairing the negligence of their earlier education, and commenced at the bottom round of the lad der by learning to read, lhey soon mastered reading, and went on to writing and ciphering, until joet before their hnal departure, they had a fair foundation. Teek, the younger boasted that he could not be stumped in Hay a Arithmetic, and had mas tered its pages in the short time of five months without a teacher. They wrote out the entire record of their trial," and studied its 'points thoroughly, endeavoring to find flaws in the testimony. Hobson Johnson, the man who accompanied them in their midnight expedition, TURNED STATE'S EVIDENCE against them, and let in a great deal of light on the inner workings of their plans and mo tives for that night's dreadful work. Al though Johnson acknowledged that he had been a thief and a friend of thieves, he claimed that he had reformed and was trying to lead a better life. His testimony was so strongly corroborated by that of reliable wit nesses, that it was accepted in spite of efforts to break it down. Confinement made telling enecte upon the appearance ot the prisoners, reducing them to a mere minimum of their average weight. Toward the last they be came very despondent, especially after THEIR FRUITLESS APPEAL to Governor Porter, and they felt that the only thing left for them to do was to make their peace wilh their God. Rev. J. B. M'Ferrin baptized them Sunday, the seven teenth instant, at the jail, in the presence of a large number ot persona who had assem bled to hold religious service, with them. They were visibly affected, and tears rolled down their cheeks as they took the solemn vows. Dr. M'Ferren told them that it be hooved them as truly repentant sinners to make a full and free confession of their sins, if they were indeed guilty of the crimes laid to their charge. He attended them in their last momenU on the scaffold. Joseph Lewis Brassell was aged twenty-three years, and George Andrew Brassell nearly twenty-one. They gave their full names at baptism. Be fore leaving the Nashville jail, TEEK BRASSELL GOT OFF THE FOLLOWING EFFC8ION, which he said he had borrowed from S. S. Prentiss: Johnson Is like Job's war horse; To the sound of Maxwell's trumpet He answered, at a far-off distance, "Ha! ha!" There was something of pride in peerless hour. Whatever may be the way In which death may lower. Fame Is there, to tell who bleeds. And honors I on flaring deeds Fame alone sets all things even. There never yet was human power Could evade, if uuforglven. a raiiniui searcn, witn patience long. Will show the men who did the wrong. How would such man before you shout. With his stolen meat and blood -stained hand. Maxwell was the prosecutor of the Brassells, while Johnson, as has already been stated, turned State a evidence against them. ADDITIONAL CONCERNING THE MURDERERS. A correspondent, writing from Cookeville, say 8: "The desperate element, supposed to have existence at Cookeville. were not con sidered strong enough to rescue the Brassell brothers Irom the clutches ot the law. ine prisoners seemed to have few friends, and the wish was universally expressed that the hanging should come oft if it took two hun dred men to guard the jail and gallows. The chief hope the Brassells had of rescue was their confederates in the gang of counter feiters to which they had belonged. This gang has a line of shovers of the queer ex tending from Cincinnati, through Ken tucky, Tennessee and Georgia. Sev eral spies from these desperadoes have been seen in Cookeville of late, and it was known that they had been in almost con stant communication with relatives of the doomed men. A third brother, Jim Brassell, was shown on the trial to have planned the attempted robbery, which resulted in young Allison '8 death: but the only witness who could prove this was Dobson Johnson, one of the men who was with the Brassells when they shot Allison. Johnson turned State's evidence, and if his testimony could have been corroborated, there would have been three brothers, instead of two, to swing. A rumor prevails at Cookeville that they have sworn to root out the whole Allison family if the boys were hanged. Jim Brassell is re garded as the shrewdest and most dangerous of the whole clan. All had been drinking deeply on the night they mur dered Allison, with the expectation of getting four thousand dollars from Alli son. They started from the Brassell still house drunk. When Allison discovered them through their disguise of blacking they were so enraged that they wanted blood and not money. But Isbell had been prevented from coming.as had been expected, and they could not have secured the booty they intended. J. H. Mead, of Atlanta.

For several years the roping gamblers have had full sway of the city. Occasionally, when a robbery of a stranger was committed, a few of the ropers were arrested and committed on the charge of vagrancy and roping by the recorder. They were turned over to the crim inal court, but eventually managed to get out by paying a small fine, and at once commenced business again. Where one ense of roping and robbing comes to light, there are a score which are never heard from, the plundered people not wishing to have their losses made known or to have their names appear in print. The parties robbed byjthe gambling-house ropers are gen erally strangers, ana they ot course cannot afford to remain in the city for months to ap pear and prosecute the thieves. The work done by the chief of po lice, yesterday morning, in breaking into William Brown's thieving den, at No. 46 Monroe street, and burning up the tools and swindling tables of the gang on the public street, is indorsed by the entire respectable portion of the community, and the general wish is that the chief will not grow weary in well doing, but will keep up the good work until every plundering den of like character in the city is suppressed. The newspapei-s did the work of yesterday, by exposing the nefarious business of the ropers and demand ing, in the name of an outraged public, that something should be done. The newspapers spur up the officials to a sense of duty occa sionally. The police have known all the time that these roping dens existed on Mon roe and other streets and carried on their business with impunity. How often have these thieving ropers been arrested, and at once other gamblers who have means interceded for and got them out of the 8tationhouse by putting up forfeits or making fair promises for their future behavior? There is a network of infamy connected wilh this roping business yet unrevealed. The work ot prohibiting or permitting the business of roping rests with the police and not with the criminal court. The vigorous measures of yesterday morning, if continued, would soon rid the city of these thieves. a bad system. The system adopted by the detective force in employing gambling ropers, both white and black, to give away others, is not a good one. The ropers so employed give away a few outside thieves, but they continue to do their own plundering work in the meantime. they believing that the information given the detectives is ample reward to prevent their own arrest. The detectives should work on their own basis, and should never place them selves under any obligations to the ropers It is a demoralizing system, and should be abolished at once by the police commissioners. ENFORCE THE ORDINANCES. The ordinances of the city give the police authorities ample power to suppress this gambling-house style of robbery, and these ordinances should now be enforced strictly, until every roper, capper and swindler is either incarcerated in jail or driven from the city. The press of tne city will sustain the police authorities in the good work, and the decent people of the city will say," well done, good and faithful servant." Brown's den is not the only one in Memphis that requires raiding or abolishment, and this tact the po lice wen know. liie true plan is to suppress them, and keep them suppressed, and force the ropers to leave the city. When the ropers appear before the criminal court they are generally discharged by juries. as no prosecutor appears. The entire matter, as to the suppression ot these dens, rests with the police, and to the police alone the public look tor protection, faying a monthly con tribution or forfeit to the city, under the head of "agent and misdemeanor," is not the proper way to eradicate the growing evil. When an evil like this becomes too promi nent it should be retired, funded as it were, and not permitted to flaunt itself on the principal streets for the purpose of taking in the innocent and unwary. But one of the ropers, "Julia" Higgins, who robbed the young Englishman isurgesa has been ar rested. Brown, the keeper of the den, Mar shall and Wayne, the ropers, yet escape ar rest, and it is rumored that they have left the city, but this is not credited by the know ing ones, who say they are only keeping out of the way until the storm blows over. The press of the city will, with pleasure, give the police all credit for such work as was done yesterday morning. AMLUSlSfflENTS. Fra DIavolo.
