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.

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

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 :
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.
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,

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

August, ls7b. ror his second crime leek

years will be spent very quietly indeed, but it
will not be in the penitentiary. From the

While in jail they sought to relieve the mo

flaws in the testimony. Hobson Johnson,

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

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

Maxwell was the prosecutor of the Brassells,
while Johnson, as has already been stated,
turned State a evidence against them.
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.

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.
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.
