Some prefer cremation, others a metallic case; many like a wooden coffin, while a few prefer a soldier's grave, in mother earth, with a martial shroud around them. Pliny states that the coffin in line among Ihe Romans was generally of tone. In some cases it was made of a cer tain stone from a district in Troas, which had, or was believed to have, the peculiar faculty of destroying til the body, the teeth excepted, in forty days. Hence the name "sarco phagus," which literally means flesh-eater. List of undelivered telegrams rmain ing at the Western Union telegraph office, No. 33 Madicon street: M. B. Trw-evant. Mrs. 8. E.

Mr. "Hop" Johnston, of the Ledger, has returned from a trip to Nashville and Louis ville. Mr. J. R. Black, of Mississippi, is visiting the city in the interest of the Senatobia (Miss.) Tidal Wave. Major. H. F. Coffee, of O K. Landing. Tunica county, Mississippi, is visiting the city and sojourning at Gaston s. Hon. R. W. Johnson, of Arkansas, who is spoken of as a prominent candidate for the office of United States senator, is in the city. He will be in our city several days. Examine our stock of ladies1 front and side lace shoes for $1 50; men's congress, $1 75; good .Newport ties, fl; ladies suppers, ollc; at Yoegeli & Co.'s corner Union and Main. Captain W. S. Anderson, of the well known piano and organ warehouse of E. Witzman & Co., is making his May trip in the interest of the firm. His friends will please reserve their orders for him. Colonel Warner, the famous intermixer of delicious toddies and punches at Ball's European hotel bar, continues to attract those citizens who are epicures as to palatable drinks. What the "colonel" cannot do with whisky, sugar, ice, glasses, etc., need not be attempted by any other man. We are glad to learn that the increased patronage of the Bon Aqua springs last sea son was so great as to compel the company to build a large two-story hotel this season, fronting both the square and the springs. Bon Aqua has become a very popular resort for Memphiana on account of the virtues of their waters and the many attractions of the place. Captain A. J. Hates is a candidate for the office of clerk of the circuit court of Shel by county. Captain Jack Hayes is one of our best-known citizens. He has a host of warm personal friends who will work hard for his nomination and election. He is most competent for the office, and should he se cure it, he will fill it in a worthy manner. He will be a hard man to beat before the nom inating convention. On the eighteenth instant, from New York, on board the steamer City of Rich mond, the following-named ladies and gen tlemen will embark for Europe, for the pur pose of attending the Paris exposition : R. F. Phillips and wife, Wm. Bowles, jr., and wue, ii. vvoonenaen ana wne, ana Miss Kate Phelan, all of this city, and Mr. Patrick Henry and wife, of Clarksville. In the announcement columns appears the card of Mr. U. W. Miller, who states that he is a candidate for the office of attorney-general of the criminal court of Memphis, sub ject to the action of the Democratic conven tion. Uaptain Miller is a well-known lawyer, who has made his mark in our courts by his legal knowledge and gifts as an advocate. Should he be so fortunate as to secure the the nomination, he will be elected by a large majority, and will perform the duties of the office in a manner most creditable to himself and most satisfactory to the public. In another column appears the announce ment of Geo. B. Peters, jr., as a candidate for attorney general of Sbelby county. Mr. Peters is well known to the people of this county, and to the members of the legal pro fession, with whom he deservedly stands very high. He has served in two sessions of the Tennessee legislature with signal fidelity to the interests of all classes of people. His course there reflected high distinction upon himself, and Shelby county was never more faithfully or ably represented than by him. Enjoying a well-established reputation for unblemished integrity and ability as a lawyer, his claims will meet with the most favorable consideration. Industrious, conscientious, able and persevering, the proper qualifica tions for the office, no one would fill the posi tion of attorney-general more satisfactorily, or receive a larger popular support than Geo. B. Peterp. Among the many dramatic stars of which our city is so justly proud, Miss Kate Harman may be distinguished as the prodigy, so uni versal is her genius, and not only in her mu sical role is she pre-eminent, but in her per sonations of character she is equally true to nature; as her grace is charming, vera in eessu patuit regina. As "Lady Allcash" she is superb. In the language of our "blind bard ' concerning our common mother, "Grace is in all her steps, heaven in her eye; in every gesture, dignity and love," while her musical solos are faultless. Unaided by fortune, with her native talent, beauty and winning man ners, she has so succeeded in the few pieces she has essayed to the public as to gain high encomiums from old professionals. The Ger man Casino club deserves the thanks of our community for tne benefit they have ten dered her at the Theater next Tuesday night, when she will appear as "Juliana" in the Honeymoon, a play which Siddons and Inch bold had rendered classic before the days of Anna Cora Mo watt, who excelled her ancient rivals in this character. We predict for Miss Harman a success in this undertaking, which, with the same amount of time and labor be stowed on it by Mrs. Mowatt, will equal her reputation. Miss Harmon will be well sup ported, for in this piece Miss Lcwellyn does her best acting, the character of "Volante" suiting ber aa though aha had "stagJfor the picture." . We Lope our amuseillit lovers will appear en mass Tuesday night, and thus give material support to oar home talent.:,.

Gerstle will take place next Thursday evening, the sixteenth instant, at the Memphis club hall. Prof. Emile Levy will direct the concert, and from the list of artists who have kindly lent their assistance, a rare treat is in store for the people of Mem phis. After the concert a grand hop will take place. Kate Harman's Benefit. Those who have purchased seals for Miss Kate Harman's benefit on Tuesday night can secure reserved seats, without any additional charge, by calling at Hollenberg's. There seems to be a determination on the part of tbe public to give this excellent young lady a rousing audieSce on Tuesday night. She is certainly deserving of it. She is ever ready with her beautiful face1 and sweet voice to aid others, and she should now be encour aged by those the has so often served. In entertainments given for charitable purposes, Miss Kate Harman ia ever ready to pour balm into hearts which misfortune has pierced and broken, and having given much of her young life for the benefit of others, the people of Memphis intend to requite her generosity, on Tuesday night, by giving her a benefit which will proclaim to the world that they are not ingrates, forgetful of her who has never for gotten them. The Skating Rink. The managers of the Exposition roller skating rink have concluded to close their first session on Saturday afternoon. May 18th. up to which time the following programme will be observed : Doors will be open every day as usual. The ring tournament for gen tlemen will take place on to-morrow (Mon day) night, on which occasion good mu-ic will be had. On Tuesday night the rink will be closed. On Wednesday night the prizes for best lady, gentleman, girl and boy skaters will be decided. On Thursdav night the rink will again be closed, and on Friday night the grand musical carnival, skating tournament and hop will take place, to which the admis sion fee will be fifty cents. On Saturday af ternoon the matinee anu last opening will take place, which will close the session, as above stated. Chickasaw Guards Concert. The largest and perhaps tbe most brilliant audience that ever graced an auditorium in this city filled the spacious hall at Estival park Friday night. The grand concert of the Chickasaw Guards was one of great in terest to our best citizen?, which was evi denced by the immense attendance of not only the youth and beauty, but the repre sentative business men of our city, together with their families. A stronger and more marked indorsement of the company and its objects could not have been given, and the Guards should and must feel highly compli mented. The programme exhibited marks of careful preparation. The Casta Diva, of Miss Roaa Barnett, a piece of the highest artistical musical excellence, was sung most charmingly by that young lady, who received a merited encore "Come e Bello," from Lucretia Borgia, scarcely less difficult, was sung magnificently, and accompanied by Prof. Perring in his faultless style. Mrs. Sullivan being prevented from appearing by a sudden indisposition, her place was very kindly filled by Mrs. Lamb and Miss Jennie Joues. Too much praise cannot be bestowed on these ladies for their amiability in coming to the rescue on so short notice, and the evi dent pleasure they gave the audience must have been highly gratifying to them. Messrs. Peter Reis and Petersen contributed to make the affair a great musical success, and re ceived the ent husiastic plaudits of a delighted audience. We congratulate the Guards on their success. l.a Moninambula. This charmincr opera, which is justly con ceded to be the most spirited and finished production of Bellini's genius, will be put into active rehearsal to-morrow night, the thirteenth instant, by the ladies and gentle men who composed the original Esther club, and who, with further additions of musical talent, produced with such marked success The Bohemian Girl. La Sonambula will be undertaken under the musical direction of Prof. James Ernest Perring, aided by Prof. Emile Levy. The great reputation of Mr. Perring as a maestro is a sufficient guarantee for a superb rendition of the opera, while the assistance of Mr. Levy will go far to assure its success in every point of view. La Sonam bula will be rehearsed for several months, affording a delightful recreation for the par ticipants during the summer, and will be brought oat some time in the early part of October, with lull orchestral accompaniments, complete scenic effects, etc , the proceeds to be devoted as a Memphis contribution to the Lee monumental fund. We cannot give our readers a better idea of the beauties of La Somnambula than by quoting the follow ing extract from a distinguished critic: "This celebrated lyric drama may rather be termed an elegy than a dramatic work, and from the peculiar bias and tendencies of Bellini's ge nius, this elegy, expressing, as it does, those peculiar tendencies in the most eminent de gree, will, perhaps, of all his works, find the most general acceptance with the musical public. In this sweet pastoral everything is of the purest simplicity, combined with a ge nial spirit of truth and delicious naivetet, or speaks tenderly and appealingly of the spring-tide and its delights Uie very 'Her mann and Dorothe' of Goethe is not more touchintrlv rural than this brieht offspring' of the 'Swan of Catania.' The opening song of morning welcome, the first expressions ot 'Amina's' happiness, and the mutual felicity of the two lovers are each master-pieces of unaffected grace. The soul must be punned when beholding the reciprocation of feeling between two youthful hearts, who are repre sented as enjjying so tranquil a bliss. All in calm, serene and transparent in the purest summer sky. Then follows the scene in which tenderness changes to passions the most intense and anguish the most insup portable. Finally we have the heart-broken sobs of 'El vino,' an effusion which no audi ence can hear, nor vocal power express, without tears." The Library Dramatic Club. The great curse of intemperance, its crimes acd its woes, in all their bitterest forma were never more vividly illustrated than at the Memphis Theater on the evening of A pril zbth, in tne periormance oi ine ueauu ful play of Ten Nights in a Bar-Room, by the Library dramatic association. The play is a living picture from the rise of the cur tain till Uie closing scene. The happy miller, who has turned tavern-keeper, in hopes of making money easier than at labor; his inter esting family; their gradual decline and ead end. Poor "Joe Morgan," the inebriate, whom brandy has reduced from affluence to the verge of a drunkard's grave, his terrible delirium, his d irling little child, who meets her death in the endeavor to coax her father home; the death-bed scene ot poor "Mary" "Good-bye, father; I shan't have to ask you to be good to mother now. Good-bye, mother." "We shall meet In the land where spring Is eternal, Where darkness ne'er comelh no sorrow, no pain; Where tbe Bowers never fade-In a clime ever ver nal; We shall meet, and our parting be never again." All go deep to the heart. There were not many dry eyes in that crowded house that night, nor never play received with greater applause. Then there is enough comedy to relieve the effect of the deeper scenes. There ia the Yankee, who believes in moderate drinking, yet is compelled to acknowled ge the killing effect of whisky; the gambler; the bummers, who hang around waiting to be asked up to drink, or, if not asked to, come up any way. All these scenes are worked up well, showing careful study on the part of the club. The joy of the restored home "A drunkard now no longer that Is o'er; Free, disenthralled. I stand a man once more." We feel confident that the play, as pre sented on April 26th, would increase in popularity with each performance, for it is one of those plays to which all can listen, even the most fastidious. Its moral is good and the language unequestionable. All church, temperance, all are deeply inter ested in the reformation of mankind, and in this play they have their best assistant. We would suggest that some arrangement be made by the club and the leaders of the Murphy movement here to give several Sat urday matinees, at prices to suit the times. We feel confident they would be very popu lar.

Some weeks ago the old "city mill" on the bayou, near the Beale street bride, was pur chased by Mr. Thomas Bird, of Ripley, Ten nessee, of the First National bank, at and for the sum of seven thousand dollars. It originally cost over thirty thousand dollarv. Mr. Bird is at work with a force of mechanics and laborers putting the mill in complete re pair, and will have it at work within three weeks for custom-work, wheat and corn. The mill will be used for grist, custom and merchants' work. It has three sets of works independent of each other, and all can be run at the same time. There are four runs of stone, two for wheat and one for corn. The capacity of the mill will be seventy-five bar rels of flour per day of ten hours in length, and, should Uie mill be ran at night, it will have double that capacity. Mr. Bird is a practical man, and is determined to make home -manufactured flour and meal a success, and in this he will no doubt be aided by Uie citizens generally, and by our merchants. It is a home enterprise worthy of every encour agement by our business men. LOCAL NOTICES. Don't fail to go to Miss Kate Herman's benefit. Floyd's ice-cream, for richness and flavor, is unsurpassed.

He has ad vanced so rapidly, and his pictures are so original and perfect, that we, claiming as we do to be a people fond of literature and art, Bhould not postpone or neglect to see his last and greatest production, now on exhibition at 257H Main street. Memphis has never had before an artUt so capable of building up a gallery of art which would be a place of resort and pleasure to us and a great attrac tion to all strangers. By the number that visit this picture he can judge whether or not to attempt rtill larger and greater produc tions. We must remember that there are ciUes in Europe which have built up their (now famous) galleries by patronizing their artists in this manner. J. HARVEY MATHES. JA8. 8. WILKINS, GEO. WINCHESTER, THOS.
