' The christening of the bell of St. Joseph's Catholic church, in South Memphis, will take place Sunday afternoon, at five o'clock. The general council has given the boaiJ cf health additional power over persons and good' coming to Memphis from infected ports and districts. It is needless to announce that yester day was one of the hot days of the season. The thermometer showed up among the nineties, as u.-ual. The funeral of the late sheriff, C. A. An-derson.tx-k place yesterday afternoon. The remains of the deceased were interred at ill m wood cemetery. A heavy levy of taxes for the year 1373 was made by ordinance and by the general council yesterday afternoon. See general council proceedings. The yellow-f.-ver circulating fiend is getting in his work. Cannot such talkative nuisances be muzzled and prevented from cir culating false rumors. About the mot regular attendants at the general council meetings are the polite deputy-sheriffs and deputy United States court marshals who serve mandamus writs. A twelve-pounder Parrot gun is mounted tt barbttte at Fort Quarantine to stop all blockade-running steamboats from New Or leans, Vicksburg, and the yellow-fever in fected districts. The motion made and carried yesterday, in the board of councilmen, to adjourn in order to attend the funeral ot the late Sheriff An ! rson, was non-coccuned in by the board of aldermen and 'ailed to pass. The Democratic gubernatorial conven tion comes off at Nashville on next Thurs day. The chances of the different candidates for the high office are already being learnedly discussed by the convention delegates. The sweet note of the pistol was heard in the alley adjoining Ball's restaurant, on Second street, at one o'clock this morning.

Colonel Hosea Townnend,. a prominent candidate for congress, and for the National party nomination, entertained a large dele gation of prominent colored politicians at his residence.. in Clu Isea, last uiglit, and in dulged in a grand social and political 'poW' wow ot an electioneering character. The attendance at the funeral ot the late Sheriff C. L. Anderson, yesterday afternoon was quite large. At Flmwood cemetery the attendance was still larger. Ihe funeral services were conducted by th Masons and Koishts of Honor, of which scceties Sheriff Anderson was a woithy brothet and honored member. 1 luring the tire at No. 15 Poplar street last rjiKht, one of the Adams street fare-boy was standing in a room of the third story when suddenly and without warning a large section of the floor fell to the second floor, a distance of some fourteen feet, carrying the breman with it, and giving him a severe jolt and a disagreeable surprise. The Bourbon Republicans and ultra -Na tionalists of this city are not satisfied with the good work done by the Democratic coun ty convention of Thursday last. They say the Democracy has tken all the wind out of their sails, and that the Nationalists, who are Democrats, and a large portion of the col ored voters, will go with the Democrats in the November election. A young man and a young woman en gaged in a run-away match in North Mem phis, Thursday night. The cruel parent was in search of the happy married couple, armed with a shot-gun, but he found them not until be got in good burner and hung up his fowl ing piece as a sign of peace.

She returns to White river this evening. A mule team, attached to a wagon, ran away on Beale street, near the market, yester day afternoon. Ihe wild mules ran over a child belonging to a man named Cohen, who does business on Ueale, near Causey, lue child received but slight damage. The mules continued on the run out Causey, and, col tiding with a lamp, wrecked it and the wagon. While all this was coming to pass, the colored driver followeJ, half a square be hind the team, and halloed, Woau woah !" The members of the board of health are of opinion that Memphis will escape the yellow-fever scourge this season. They do not believe that the tever will appear in the city, although a case may be brought here from the infected districts on the gult coast or New Orleans, the work ot cleansinsr the streets, alleys, gutters, private premises, etc and disinfecting sinks and foul localities is progressing rapidly, and will be kept up en ergetically so long as the summer season and not weatner lasts. Coroner Caldwell is acting sheriff of Shelby county at present, and will continue so to act until the sherin-elect gives his offi cial bond. The writs in the hands of the deputy sheriffs at the time of Sheriff Ander son s death will be served by them as usual All new writs issued by clerks of courts must be addressed to the coroner ot Shelby county. Coroner Caldwell has appointed four depu ties, and among them is Major Ben K. Pul- len, who will continue iu charge of the office business as heretofore. 1 he coroner re-ap pointed Jailer Leslie to take charge of the countyjau. Almost nightly hack-loads of lewd white men and women are driven out the Pigeon Roost road to the vicinity of Central park, between the dirt road aud the Charles ton railroad track. When on the commons the hack-lights sre extinguished, and the vile occupants of the hacks get out and indulge in orgies ot the grossest character, this has become an unbearable nuisance to the resi dents of the vicinity, who now threaten to swear out warrants against the hack-drivers and the occupants of the harks, and expose all parties to the public. This is the only way to stop the infamous proceedings en gaged in by those lewd and shameless peo ple. A police raid on the crowd would have a fine effect. At half-past feight oclock last evening a fare was discovered m the third story of the brick building No. 15 Poplar street, between Main and Front streets, and occupied by A. B. Arnold, painter. The roof was in a blaze in a few minutes, but it was not long before the fire-brigade sjppressed the flames. The roof of the adjoining brick building. No. 13, was somewhat injured by the fire. This building is occupied by Mrs. Delia Walsh, boardinghouse-keeper. The damage done by the fire to the upper story and roof of the building occupied bv Mr, Arnold will be about three hundred dollars, and that to the adjoing house will amount to but a tew Ual lars. Considerable damage by water was done to the bedding, furniture, etc., in the Arnold building. The cause of the fire was accidental. PERSONAL. J. W.

What Is Thought of hint in IVashiac ton A Host Useful Member, he Ought to be Returned' to Congress. Washington Gazette: The many friends of non. tasey ioung, wlio has so ably repre- seuted the Memphis (lennessee) district in congress for the past three years, will be glad to learn that there is a strong probability of his re-election. Ills great personal popular ity and the fidelity with which he has at tended to his duties, make him a valuable representative. His successful efforta in be half of the Memph-s customhouse, and for the improvement of the river front of that city, show that his influence was of good ac count, and that he commanded the respect and attention of the houe. His ability as an able lawyer, ready debater, always courteous toward his opponents, has placed him in conspicuous position ;n congress. Having developed the capacity to deal with all pub lic questions as a conscientious legislator, his services are now made more valuable by the experience which he ban had in the national councils. The most influential members of the house of representatives are those who have been returaed by their constituents year after year. And in some sections ot tbe country a member who possesses the ability to occupy a seat in the house with such cred it to himself and his people, is constantly re elected, upon the ground that f amiliarity with public affairs is one ot the moot important acquisitions m tbe character ot a legislator. Colonel Young has always shown a due ap preciation ot the commercial interests ot the country, and in this regard other public men might prone by hi? example. Sucua quality, to the great southwest especially, is cue ot vast importance. He is a staunch Democrat, and always evinces the strongefat allegianci to his party. His utterances, however, are characterized by a spirit of tolerance and fairness which has won for him the admira tion of his friends ;ind the respect ot his op ponents, it is to be hoped that the people of his district will not be influenced by any local dissensions which may arise, but that they will return Colonel louug to the forty-sixth congress, where his usetul career may be continued. POLITICAL 3EWS. ALABAMA, Montgomery Advertiser and Mail. Gth: "An immense number of negroes voted the straight Democratic ticket in the county yes terday. The Montgomery Advertiser and Mail re joices over the result of the recent elections as follows: rrom the mountains to the gulf, with ncarcely an exception, Conserva tives and Democrats have arisen in their might and buried Radicals, Independents and Green backers in a common grave." Montgomery Advertiser and Mail, 6th: "The result in Montgomery county, hereto fore the stronghold of Radicalism, is par ticularly gratifying surpassing even our most sanguine expectations. Sensible col ored men all over the county turned out and worked dilligently the livelong day for the Democratic and Conservative ticket. Their labor was not in vain, as the result shows. A great wave of joy sweeps over Alabama to-day, from the gulf to the borders of Tennessee." Montgomery Advertiser and Mail, 6th: The Democratic majority in the city is quite eight hundred; at M'tihehee's three hundred and seveniy; at Porter's two hundred and twelve; at Pike road two hundred and fifty; at Walker's one hundred and forty. At Kendall's Stroback and his crowd received seventy majority, and at Robinson's thirty seven, which are about the only boxes in the county they have carried. The majority in the county, for the Democrats, is probably not less than two thousand." MISSISSIPPI. Vicksburg Herald, 6th: "General Chal mers informs us that owing to the quaran tine regulations in this district, he has post poned his canvass until fall." Houston Patriot: "We are of opinion that Ethel Barksdale, the long-tried and able ed itor of the Clarion, is the proper man to suc ceed Mr. Bruce in the senate. For this opin ion we will give reasons good and true here after." Vicksburg Herald, 6th: "General Chal mers recently addressed his constituents in Washington county, at Leota and in Lake Washington. The reception accorded our honored representative,, in that favored por tion of our State, was enthusiastic and cor dial in the extreme. The great heart of the people seems to say with "loud acclaim," 'well done, thou good and taithtul servant. AKKAXMAtt. Little Rock Democrat, 6th: "Hon Thomas Orr, the Republican nominee for the State senate in the district composed of Columbia, Lafayette and Miller counties, has stated, if elected, he will suppott Hon. John T. Jones for the United States senate." Little Rock Gazette, 6th: "Mr. Hill has sent his regrets to the Greenbacksrs, and de clines to be a candidate on their State ticket. We suppose General Burrows 's letter of de clination will arrive in a day or so, and then Cunningham will be like the last rose ot sum mer left blooming alone." Little Rock Gazette, 6th: "Neither Colo nel Johnson nor any of his friends want him to go to the senate on any other grounds than those ot his own merits, it they are not sui ficient to carry him through in the estimation of honest, honorable and patriotic men, let him sink; he nor bis friends will ever try to lift him up on the downfall of others. Our friend of the Jonesboro Times can rest as sured of that fact." TEXAS. Dallas Commercial, oth: "The jealousy existing between Deni3on and Sherman will no doubt cause Judge Hare some trouble be fore the Fort Worth convention is over with." Austin Stare Gazette, 5lh: "On the tenth Governor Thockmorton opens the State cam paign by a speech to tbe people of Collin county, in favor ot the nominations of the Austin convention." Dallas Commercial, 5th: "Colonel F. R. Bonner, of Smith county, and speaker in the fifteenth legislature, has been defeated for renominatioo.and will have to sit down with Herndon and Hubbard and look on while the great chief-justice mounts the seat of power and guides the affairs of State." 'DooIey'sTeMst Powder," said a lady, "has made itself indispensable in our kitchen. Our biscuits, cake, waffles, muffins, and such like things, with its aid, are aiways enjoyable and good.

A contest h is grown out of the late county election. Mr. Ben Reeves notified Coroner Caldwell that he claimed the certificate of election to the office of attorney-general of the Bartlett circuit court, on the ground that Mr. W. J. Duval, who received the certificate ot election was ineligible to the office, on the ground that when elected he resided in Mem phis and not within the jurisdiction of the Bartlett circuit court. In the election, W. J. Duval (National), received nine thousand four hundred and forty-three votes in the city and county. Ben Reeves, who resides at Bartlett, received hve votes in the country districts, which, he claims, gives him a title to, and elects him to the office ot attornev general of the Bartlett circuit court, he being eugioie Dy reason of residing within the jurisdiction of the court, and his opponent. VV. J. Duval, not being eligible, no matter bow many votes he received, by reason of hi residing in Memphis, and outside the jurisdiction of the court. The matter of con test will come up before Judge Kortrecht, of the chancery court, when he takes his seat on the first Monday of September, and by a writ oi qua warranto. Inere are said to be some nice legal points involved in the question, which the lawyers and the chancellor will have to solve. Some years ago the Bartlett circuit court had con current jurisdiction over Shelbv countv. Memphis included, and the people of the en tire county voted to elect its officers, but sub sequent legislatures restricted the criminal and civil jurisdiction of the court to the coun try districts outside the boundary line of Memphis. It is a question whether or not the citizens of Memphis have the lezal right to vote to elect the officers of the Bartlett cir cuit court, except the judge of the court, who as probate judge of Shelby county, is ex offi cio judge of the Bartlett circuit court. Should it be decided that the citizens of Memphis had no right to vote in the recent election for candidate for the office of attorney-general of the Bartlett circuit court, it would cut no fig ure in the contest, because W.J. Duval re ceived a greater number of votes in the coun try thaa his opponents, Ben Reeves, who re ceived five votes, and Mr. George G. D-nt, who received twenty-six hundred and sixty- one votes; Mr. Duval having received in the country thirty-nine hundred and sixty votes. So tbe contest, it any, must hinge on the question of ineligibility, because of non-resi dence within the jurisdiction of the Bartlett circuit court on the part of Mr. Duval. Mr. Dent, who received the next highest vote in the country, could not raise the question of ineligibility against Mr.' Duval, because be Mr. Dent also resided in Memphis at the time of the election, so it leaves the entire contest to Mr. Ben Reeves, who received five votes. THE FALL TRADE. - The Outlook from a Kew York Stand point Very Enrouraging-Thellot-ten Houses Weeded Oat The Bottom Reached. New York Commercial Advertiser: Tho merchants and commercial classes of this city have been looking lorward with great conh- dence to a good fall trade, and from the evi dences which are even now presented there appears to be no doubt but that their hopes will be reanzed. A one ot them expect tbe rushing kind of business which character ized trade in general before the panic of 1873, but, all believe that a sound and steady style ot business will be carried on, mainly upon cash principles or on those ot short credit. Country buyers show by their orders that all their stocks are low, and that the fine crops, having given the farmer encouragement. have also induced their wives and daughters to replenish their depleted stores of dry goods, etc., to an extent which shows that prosperity is again apparent in the rural districts. Firm trade has been guaranteed by the general sweeping out of rotten houses aud reckless traders. Heretofore there have been located in this city, in common with all cities, a number of speculative firms that have sought trade at ruinous sacrifices, re gardless of the fact whether or not the pro ducers of the goods or their agents realize anything by the sales. Millions upon rail lions of dollars worth of goods have been dis posed of in this manner, to the injury of the fair trader and to the pecuniary loss of the producer, such unprincipled dealers general ly winding up in a failure for hundreds of thousands, with "no assetts." These houses have been nearly all wiped out, so that the prospects are that trade will be conducted this season on business principles. This statement is borne out by inquiries as to the meetings of creditors, which were so com mon a short time ago, for the purpose of ef fecting a compromise with debtors and real izing something from the wreck a chflnce which was extremely remote ot the debtor should take advantage of the bankrupt laws. It was found that these meetings ot creditors had lately been exceptional rather than the rule, and from this fact it is believed that hon est business houses generally had "found bottom," and rested securely thereon, wflile speculators had ben driven out to a great extent.
