Trir;o firea Oc'curred in this city on yesterday. New fall dresses and head-gear are seen daily on Mam street. A light fall of pnow and sleet, which followed the chilly nnd disagreeable weather of yesterday, tell in the afternoon. The rotits of record are prep arinsr for Chriitmas adjournment. Every man must havn his turkey and ctatiberry sauco on that day. - A bad wooden eewpr crossing, cn Ihe w?at siJe of Pontotoc and Main street, ca Is for the attention of the street carpentei'a force. The board of education met last niffhf, Kn-I, after transacting regular business, ad journed to meet again at the next regular meeting. Tbi trained elephants and othpr wonder ful attractions, over which Addie Forepautth rresides, i one of the great wonders ot the circus world. Nothing l-ut Foreraugh'8 "celebrity as the greatest showman on earth could have drawn such a crowd to the bluffs as was seen last night. Forepttogh's big stre ft parade and per formance on the bluff this afternoon and to night, will be big attractions for both little and big folks. Yef-terday morning, before Recorder Q'lialey, Henry Day was committed to jail on the charge of larceny. His bail was fixed at eight hunnred dollars. Mud, rotten Nicoleon pavement, bad crossings of. a dangerous character, and crooked sidewalks, describe accurately the condition of Memphis at present. At eleven o'clock yesterday morning the department was called out, owing to the li lrninf? of a shanty, occupied by negroes, on u tyoti Urayoso. isouin Mempnis. Forepauerh's great cirrus and menage rie is on Ihe bin 11' to-day. Performances will be given t hi? afternoon and night. This the last chance to see the great show. The Chickasaw Guards will give a drss drill at tLeir armory to nicht. Alter the fine military exhibition, the ''Chicks" and invited guests will inciulee in a social hop. A bad hole in the crossing on Main and and Lrjien streets calls ocenlv for the at ten tion of the c.ty engineer. The street cross ings are getting in a dangerous condition all over town. It is moved by the ladies, seconded by the gentlemen, and carried unanimously by the w hole community, that .Mr. roreraugh kpen his splendid menagerie and circus open another day. Ltdies pull their dresses up by a loop, and gentlemen tuck their pants in their boots or roll them up a lew inches at present, in order to keep their clothing out of the mud on street crossings. The police or recorder's court continues to present a lively docket, the effecses being principally caused by drunkenness. Twenty arrests were mane by the police Saturday nnd a uczen Sunday. ilr. lien lnodes, a well-known river man, was shot and killed by unknown assets Bins at Germnntown on Sunday night. The murdered man was the brother of Mr. Piatt Rhodes and J. W. Rhodes. A Cthhraled Case was the dramatic at traction of the Theater last evening. It was an attraction truly, and will be reproduced to-night, ana pach niht during the wees as well as at the Saturday matinee. Why send yojr money away for papers and magazines, when Alanstord. comer Second and Monroe street?, receives sub scriptions at publishers' prices. Go there and subscribe for what you want. Owing to the beastly weather. Fore ranch's circus and menagerie company did not nial-'e a street parade yesterday after noer. The band of the company, drawn by sir white steeds, serenaded the Aitkal office in the afternoon. Last Sunday evening.nt about ten o'clock, the turning ot the tramp kitchen att tched to the dwelling of Dr. Toole, on Mulberry street, caused the tire department to turn niii The tire was caused by a defective flue. The damage was nominal. Mr. Forepaugh will confer an ei-pec:al favor on the ladies and others who pay the extra fee for reserved seats by excluding the cigar-fiend. He took possession of that de partment last night, greatly to the discom fiture ot tbe decent element. At the crimmnl court, yesterday, George App, Rrrested tor the killing ot John llackett, waj brought oat on a writ of habeas corpus on a motion to admit to bail. After hearing testimony and argument of counsel. Judge Rav remanded the prisoner to jail without bail. The tents supplied by the government to the cirzna relief committee tor camp pur poses, have been ordered to be burned nnd destroyed by the secretary of war. The tents had better be given to the poor init3ad of being destroyed by fire. A cremated tent is of no use to anybody. Owing to the bad weather, and the gen eral desire of the public to witness Fore patigh's circus and menagerie, it is tbe genera wish that the show will remain until Ihurs day, so as to give performances at a mati nee on to-morrowand again to-morrow night. This will be indorsed by the public. Esquire Spetman yesterday held an in quest on the body cf a female infant, found in a privy vault in south Memphis. The physi cian, af ter examination of the body, decided that the child bad been alive at birth, its mother being a colored woman and its father a white man. As yet no arrests have been made for the case of infanticide. In business circles the merchants con tinue to be crowded. The receipts of cotton yesterday was 8228 bales, against 5833 of last year on the same day, ana oioi on the same day of the previous yenr. before the end cf the week, should tbe rush cf cotton continue, one hundred thousand bales will be in our city awaiting compressing and shipment. The Memphis game market is well sup plied. The retail prices are as follows : Ven lzen, whole deer, U(5c; saddles, 5(7o per NEW. ira,M&Co pound. t-MdirreU 1 per" dozen. Rabbits, l oO per dnz-n.

'lao fnHowing wt re the new officers elett- et last Light, at the Memphis club hall, at a called meeting of the Hebrew hospiUl asso ciation: E. Lowecstein, president; Jacob Kohlberg. vice-president; M. Sattonus, sec retarv; David Eiseman, treasurer; Dr. M. Pamtield, Isaac Schwab, D. Hilman, Lou I,i ubrie. Max Friedman, M. Ulman and S. Vendig, boaid of directors. The cflicers of the Memphis club are as j follows: Lee Heiz-'g. president; 11. oensuer ger. vice-president; Jake Leubrie, secretary; A. L. Lowenstm, treasurer; u.ive ciseuiau, Jake Marks, Max Friedman, trustees; Henry Seetsel, jr , Charles Levick. . ins members of the club gave a tormai opening of their new club room, on the corner of Sec ond ar,d Adams Btreets, last night. Dr. Heber Jones, health officer, has in formed W. H. Foute, superintendent of city schools, and Mr. RaUton, of the school com mittee, that the school buildings used during the recent epidemic have been thoroughly cleansed, ventilated and fumigated, and are now perfectly safe for the reception of pupils. In accordance with the above medical opinion the city schools were opened on yesterday. Seven members of the school board are 1 twyers, and good cnes at that, but the non legal members of the board have some ideas as to great constitutional and charter ques tions which they are loath, from modesty, to advance. Gentlemen, law is only the perfec tion of reason, and the most seasible non leg il man often announces more common law tht:n the schooled lawyer. Don't be backward in coming forward. At a regular meeting of the Memphis opera club, held laet evening, the following officers were elected for the ensuin? term: President, Ad Reis; secretary, Charles C.Cur-rier- treasurer, C. P. Miller; musical director, C. P. Winkler. All members are earnestly requested to be present on Thursday evening next, at 2'J-i Main street, for a full rehearsal, and all others dt sirous of joining this society are respectfully invited to attend. The Ledger man, "Hop" Johnson, charge the Appeal city-editor with carry ,n ntt' 7ith force of arms, a copy of the bible from the LVer-cilice. The charge is not exactlv correct; but, if it had been, it would only show that the Appeal nevtrhad be come convinced that spreading the gospel in the Ledger office was an impossibility. The heathens of the Ledger r.ffice are good men gone wioag on the Darwin and Bob Inger soil theories as to the past, present and future. An indignnnt correspondent writrs as follows: "At the Dostoffice every Sunday morning there ia a push and a scramble to o-et tii the box. feome men act more like fools than men.and elbow themselves through the crowd up to tbe box like they were ex pecting a letter containing ten thousand dol lars. The best thing Mrs. R. A. Thompson can do will be to have a railing put around thoKP hexes, so gentlemen can get their let ten without being insulted by tbe rough crowd that LUwiirs ground the postofhee every Sunday morning. At six o'clock yesterday morning a fire broke out under the fire-range of Frank Stur la's aaloon and restaurant, on the corner of Main and Gayoao streets. The fire was caused by some coaia dropping from the range, and bad been burning some hours be- it wa'-.o!scoverea, ine uea?e huae loi:" ei "' kousfi awakened the occu which filleu . '-u fjdhi, barkeeper, pants above. Mr. jvu. . ., wak- and Mr. John Carroll, steward, v.... ened, and they, with buckets of water, man aged to extinguish the fire before it could spread throughout the house. The occu pants of the adjoining building were alarmed and no little commotion ensued. Sid Cook gets off a pretty good thing on his nurses while be had the yellow-fever: Dr. Sim had visited him just about his critic al period, and found him low. He ordered the nurses to give Sid a toddy mixed with glycerine and a little niter. When the doc tor left, Joe, the Dutch nurse, said to Dale, the other nurse: "Veil, I vont giv Sid the toddy." "Why?" said Dale. "Mein Got iu himmel, he'il be blown up, the house and all; dunder and blitzB, don't you know vat compound dot is? Yhy, dot is what they used 8t Hell Gate to blow up the rocks." "H 1 yon say!" said Dale. "Vby, yes," said the Dutchman; "it's nitro glycerine, vhat's used for blasting." "Wbv, it will blow up the town," said Dale. "We von't give it," slid Joe. "No," said Dale. Sid lost his toddies, but was saved from being blown up. Oxford f Miss.) Falcon : " Memphis, from its nearness and accessibility, is the natural trading point for north Mississippi Her water and railroad facilities bring freights almost down to nominal figures. which enable business men of that place to successfully compete in prices with any ot her sister cities who depend upon southern traae. Her vitality and recuperative powers evinced since the late terrible plague is a wonderful proof of the 'never say die' pluck and enter prise of her citizens and business men, and for this, if for no other reason, she deserves the support and patronage of all sections within easy reaeh. Mississippi having no city of her own, Memphis is as nearly identi fied with her as with Tennessee, and now when she is jost out of an epidemic that cost hundreds of lives and thousands of dollars, that paralyzed her business interests in every channel and lost her months of legitimate trade; now when she ia coming from out the valley of the shadow of death, struggling to regain her old position, let Mississippi, and esDeciallv north Mississippi, lend her a help ing hand, give her the trade that legitimately belongs to her, and render her the support and patronage that she so much stands in need of and 60 richly deserves." Stack Lee, tbe popular commander of the Geo. W. Cheek, has much to do to keep his friends that is everybody straight. Last trip a certain one of the editorial profes sion was a passenger, and during the trip (through the city) got unusually full. Stack found him and tock him aboard to carry him home. During the voyage down the river a man strlicted with delirium tre mens, jumped overboard, and was barely res cued irom a watery grave. Stick, wishing to impress his new paper friend with the evil resuits of looking on the wine when it is red, etc., said to him: "See here, Kirk, you were just snatched from a watery grave. You said your name was Jones, and all of Forepaugh's animals were after you; over board you went, and but for one of my deck ers you would have been a mermaid's sweet heart, or some other water fowl; now go to bed and stay thereuntil I go to Friars Point." "The h 1," says the rural editor; "if all that happened, bow the h 1 did my clothes get dry so quick?" Stack is never wanting for a reply to bothersome questions, and told him that his paper was so absorbed in the oil-seed question that water wouldn't stick. The rurtl gentleman mused awhile, and finally said: "Stack, I guess you had better give me a ttateroom, and put one of tha bell boys at each door so I can't get out again." PERSONALS. Madame A. Marre, dressmaker, can be found at 294 Third street. Miss Rellsa M'Neal, of Lagrange, Ten nessee, is a guest of Thomas Boyle, Esq-, on Adams street. John Kilkesy, of the Louisville Short line, is in the city, the guest of Colonel James Speed, the popular railway agent.

At the usual hour last night the school board met at the educational board room, at the Odd-Fellows building. School Visitor Towsend in the chair. Superintendent Foute read the following report, which was received: THE REPORT. Office of the Board or Editatioh, i Memphis. December V. 187K. ( To tbe Honorable Boaid of Kducatlon: Gentlemen Dr. Heber Jones, the health officer of the city, having satisfied himseif by careful personal inspection of the various school buddings that they were in a saie condition for the reception of pupils, and having addressed to your honorable body bis official certificate to that effect (tbe original ot which will doubtless be laid before you by the committee on school buildings), the city schools were opened to-day in pursuance of a resolution passed by the board November 27, 1873. I have visited all the schools, and submit the following items of information: WHITE bCHOOLS. Number of pupils high school Male, 5; female, 20; firot year, 14; second year, 5; third year, 6. lotal, 2o. Market street school Male, 16; female, 13, Total. 34.

Second street school Male, 5; female, 2. lotal, 7. Monroe street school Male, 5; female, 10 Total 15. Clay street school No report. Whole number of colored pupils 22, so far as reported, m iking the aggregate of pupils in attendance 429, leaviog out the Clay street building. The severity of the weather Wing taken into consideration, along with other reasons, this is a very fair attendance for the opening day, as compared with former years. Of one fact, however, I am convinced, and can assure the board, viz: That the zeal aud earnestness everywhere exhibited by both teachers and pupils promise a rich harvei during the present session, notwithstanding the untoward circumstances which prevented the opening in October as contemplated. and which, following the premature closing of the schools for the previous scholastic year, have tended to diiarrango, for a time. our graded system, and to introduce difficul ties which would otherwise never have occur red, and from which we sincerely hope Divine Providence will in future preserve us. beg your attention to some suggestions which, if adopted, wil', I trust, neutraliz? many, if not all these difficulties, and make the yot cf tfje echools for the coming year satisfactory alike to the ooard, the teacheis. the pupils and the public. In view, there fore, of the shortness of the present session, 1 must suggest First The omission of the regular termal examination, whjch under ordinary circum stances would take pTace the second wefck in February, for the obvious reason that pupils will be ur.P.l'lP IP b-nisa the terni s work: now ""mired, the suggestion of Colonel Secona- James T. Leatb. late sue. Ai-hatendent, in re- gard to the necessity for abbrevi. ing the course in arithmetic, be adopted, and that such abbreviation be made permanent as to that study. , Third l'hat the same committee to wluca this matter is referred, be empowered to tem- tioranli? revisp t.h entire course of study in the graded schools to meet the exigencies of the present scholastic year; and Fourth That examinations in the graded schools be deferred until the close ot the year. As to the high school, I would make the same suggestions concern ing examinations. I am in receipt of a letter from Dr. C. J. Hunter, late pro feasor of mathematics in the high school resigning his position, and recommend that no successor be elected to fill the vacancy, I am of the opinion, from mtormatiou de rived from an interview with Prof. T. C. An derson and Mrs. E. J. Crockett, of the high school, that the institution can be conducted as efficiently a s heretofore with the present corps ot teachers; provided, some changes are made in the curriculum arid mode of dis cipline. It would probably be best to leave the matter to the judgment of the superin tendent or principal, inasmuch as changes must necessarily be made with reference to immediate surroundings. In regard to changes in the curriculum, I have to suggest 1. A temporary version of tha coarse with a view to the brevity of the coming ne.sioa the matter to be referred to a special com mittee of three. 2. The discontinuance of tbe study of botany and geology. 3. The substitution of a short course in chemistiy say oteele s tor the text-books now in use or the abbreviation of the present text book to the study of such portions as pertain to the experience of daily life. 4. That Latin be made an optional study and not to be under taken by any pupils except those whose patents or guardians shall promise that their children or wards will prosecute the study without interruption during the year. 5. That United States history be continued through out the course, in connection with that of England, as now provided for. 6. That the study of English composition and etym ology be made imperative throughout the entire course. 7. Finally, I would earnestly recommend, with a view to make the course more practical and in order to pre pare pupils, both male and female, for the real duties ot lite, and to open up. if possible. a new field of employment for the latter, that the studies of book-keeping, commercial arithmetic and the practice of penmanship U . 1 I . . i i I , . ue uuruuuceu inio uie regular nigh scnoci course, and that the same be prosecuted under the tuition of a competent person reg ularly elected by the board, who shall receive for his services the sum of dollars per month. iy leaving the present vacancy in tue nign scnooi unhiied, the board could em ploy a competent special teacher for this pur pose and still save a considerable sum month ly. Some action of the board is necessary to carry into effect a suggestion of the late superintendent in reference to an amend ment of section four of the rules and regula tions wnicn nxes tne hours ot ttudy, recess, etc. I think a certificate may justly be award ed to Airs, boutberland, formerly Miss lmo gene Latham, in place of one lost or mislaid inougn tne record aoes not turnish positive proot ot the lact, yet it may very properly be inferred that she would not have been in the employment of the board, and certainly would not have received a salary, unless she bad previously received a certificate. Such cm ployment may be reasonably held as vrima facie evidence of the existence of a certificate, ana hence l recommend that Mrs. bouther- land s petition be granted and a grammar grade certificate be reissued to her. An ex amination of applicants for teachers' certifi cates was held, in accordance with the direc tion of the president of the board, from November 25th to November 29th. inclusive. The results of that examination will be re ported to the board by the teachers' com mittee. 1 wish, in connection with that re port, to call your attention to the small num ber of those who obtain certificates, aa com pared with those who fail. This fact is due to two reasons: First, the scope of the ques tions given, the design being to cover the ground required under the rules to sustain the standard of requirement, and hence the value cf the certificate when obtained: and. second, to the general and painful want of preparation on the part ot applicants. It is to be hoped that applicants will not in the future present themselves, until they have obtained by study and application, such a knowledge of the branches required as will afford them a reasonable assurance of success, and thus enable them to avoid the humiliation which inevitably waits upon lack of preparation. lo supply the large number ot applicants that usually attend our regular examinations with materials for preparing examina tion papers, to advertise such examinations in the daily papers, and to issue certificates to successful candidates, puts the board to an expense for which I can conceive no ade quate advantage ia received. I would, there tore, suggest that the board fix a tee which shall be sufficiently large to cover all the ex penses referred to above. I feel that the board will excuse me, if, in conclusion, I take advantage of this, my first official com munication addressed to ycur honorable body, to express my deep appreciation of the honor conferred upon me in being selected as the executive officer of the board of educa tion and superintendent of the city schools. 1 acept the honor, let me add, with the mod esty befitmg the successor of so good and great a man as James T. Leatb, and with the determination to devote whatever of zeal, energy and ability I am possessed of to the public educational interest of Mem phis, and to render whatever aid I can, in conjunction with the labors of your honorable body, to the furtherance of every plan which shall add to the prosperity, perfect the sys tem and extend the usefulness of the city Schools. WM. H. FOUTE. Superintendent, Etc OTHER BUSINESS. The recommendations as to the February examinations were adopted. That part of the report which recommended as to tbe teachers, and changes in the course of study be submitted to tha committee on teachers, was adopted. The other recommendations j of the superintendent were also adopted. Oa j the question of employing a teacher in tbe high school, to teach penmanship and book keeping, the matter was referred to the committee on teachers. The treasurer presented no report. The auditing committee presented several reports, which were read and received. President Goodman not having appeared in the room, Acting-President Townsend was called to the chair. As to the city paving scrip in the hands ot the building committee, which was authorized to be sold for its market value, or rather its depreciated value, for tbe improvement of the Linden street schoolhouse, the board authorized the building committee not to sell the scrip at its present value. Tbe amount of scrip is about eighteen hundred dollars. NEW MEMBER ADMITTED. Mr. A. Spiro, school visitor elect of the second ward, appeared and was swera in as a member. HEDUCINO RENT. Mr. Trezevant stated that it had become a rule for landlords to reduce rent during the epidemic; he therefore moved that the secie tary be requested to ask landlords to reduce or remit such rent on all prep?rty rented by the city for school purposes. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON TEACHERS. Mr. Rhett, of the committee on teachers, reported as to teachers, and that certificates be granted to such teachers. The report was adopted: CERTIFICATES GRANTED.

A Remarkable story. Jackson (Tenn.) Tribune and Sun : "Col onel D. H. King says that, in 1873, during the yellow-fever epidemic in Memphis, there were three men who gave it as their per-ocal experience that they had esctped yellow fever by the use of Robertson county whisky. They belonged to a popular club in the city. and when the epidemic ot 167i brose out they imparted this information to their asso ciates. Tbe result was that a number cf them agreed to remain and rely on Robertson county whisky as a preventive. All who en tered into the ag'eement passed through safely except one, and the colonel says that his death was accounted for from the fact that he went out and got drunk on Bmrbon. The colonel says that Woodward ic Moore, of Nashville, make tbe purest and best, and he presumes that it was their celebrated Silver Spring whisky which saved the Mem phis olub from annihilation by the epidemic. We consulted Colonel Wm. Moore, of the firm, about it and he thinks 'Earn' u correct." ADDITIONAL 1UVKK.N. Loral.
