The appearance and con tents of the present number which com pletes the first vo!ume justify the opinion that the Journal is rapidly working itself into favor, both with the legal profession and the public. "Is the bar unpopular'!1" is dis cussed editorially in an able manner, the ar gument going to Ehow the unreasonableness of the pooular prejudice, and illustrations given to exhibit how much of this prejudice has been created by the overdrawn charac ters of novelists, taken from the lowest in stead of the highest rank of the profession. The volume contains the latest decisions of the Tennessee. Missaseippi and Arkansas courts, ami a well-arranged digest of deci Kiors in other courts. W. C Fowlkes, Esq., a leading member of the bar, succeeds Mr. J. R. Greene as editor of the Tennessee depart ment, and A. li. Hurl, Esq., will report de cisions for the State of Mississippi.

Ed requests all his friends to call and see him, and assures them a good bargain in whatever they may wish to purchase. "Where can I get a drink?" he said. "At Gaston's bar," replied a friend, "The Colonel will supply your need, And fix you up from end to end. He mixes drinks as no man can. Except himself."

Attention is asked to the new advertise' ment of tho FresbytFriau school. As a re- suit of spending the long vacation in study ing the schools of other cities, where the ideas of Pestalczzt and Froebel have taken deep root, the principal gives us a new de parture in primary training. Its leading objects, as set forth in the prospectus, are the cultivation of the perceptive faculties, obseivation rather than memory alone, habits of correct expression, of original thought, exercises in composition, physical training. music and;drawing;in'short, that symmetrical development which has always been a lead ing principle in this school. As a permanent feature in Memphis educational circles, we recommend this school in all departments. Promises made by its managers are never vain, in all its appointments tne school is attractive. Five teachers of reputation and experience are employed in the literary de partment. Latin is taught daily without extra charge. 1 rot. VVitztnan visits the pchool to teach modern languages.

The Block of Buildings on the Southeast Corner of Fourth and Poplar Streets, with Contents, En tirely Destroyed. A. A J. Helliger's Bakery, with Stock and Fixtnres, a Total Loss Narrow Fs-a?e of the Tenants Loss, Insurance, Etc. About three o'clock this morning a fire broke oat in Heiliger's bakery (formerly Ber- ton's confectionary), corner of Fourfch and .... . Poplar streets, the flames being brstdi3c.ed in the bake-room in the cellar, and in a few moments the entire building was in flames, the occupants barely escaping with their lives. The adjoining tenement build ings (all brick) on Poplar and Fourth streets, soon caught fire, and, for a time, baffled the efforts of the firemen. So quick was the entire corner, including the adjoining building, in flames, that the women and children had to be driven out barefooted, in their night clothes, on the snow-covered streets. The cries, groaning and weeping of the children was heartrending. The west wall of Heiliger's bakery, fronting on Fourth street, fell in, causing the flames to burst up with renewed energy, several of the firemen narrowly escaped from being caught beneath it. The inflammable material inside the bakery fed the flames to such a heat that the water thrown by the engines seemed to have little effect. The firemen pressed on with characteristic perseverance, pouring torrenU of water into the seething mass of fire and flame, but little was accomplished until the entire contents of the building were con sumed. All efforts were directed to saving the adjoining property, which seemed for a time destined to the fate that had befallen Heiliger's building. There was a strong breeze blowing from the northeast, which carried sheets of (lime and burning fire brands to the roofs of the buildings on Wash ington, Fourth, Poplar, and as high up as Third street. When the flames burst into the up-stairs of the adjoining unoccupied building heavy, black columns of smoke rushed through the roof as if several barrels of coal-oil had bursted. It was afterward discovered that the upper stories of the entire block of buildings had been on fire some time, the flames being confined within the rooms until the falling of the corner building caused them to break cut afresh. The building was the property of Mrs. Stillman, who, it is said, had no insurance Mr. Heiliger stated that his stock acd fixtures amounted to about five thousand dollars, on which he had policies of insurance t the amount of one thousand dollars each in the agencies of Sturm & Hirsch, Carrington Mason, andTonilinson, aggregating three thousand dollars. As we go to press the fiie is burning, with little prospect of the firemen djing more than saving the property adjoin ing. Mr. Cameron, who keeps a grocery store, corner Washington and Second streets, car ried Mrs. Stillman, the owner of the burned building, and who has long been an invalid, oat of her residence, adjoining on Fourth street. The lady was so feeble and overcome by the excitement caused by the fire as to become nearly insane. She was carried into Mr. Towbridge's house, across the street, where her friends gave her proper attention GKEAT REDUCTION IN DIIY UOUI3. Staple and Fancy Dry Goods MARKED DOWN AT B.

It is quite remarkable that intelligent peo ple who properly appreciate excllenee in education, will consider no sacrifice too great to secure the very best moral, intellectual and physical training tor their children. True refinement and virtue are due to excellence in education, so that what ever honesty, truthfulness, industry, en ergy, temperance, courage, chanty, or any other virtue may be found in the individual. or in a community, all owe their existence to proper training in youth. In nothing else is it as important to prefer "excellence to cheap ness," or to remember that "an once of pre ventive is worth a pound ot cure, than in the education of children. Tho Christian Brothers' college offers every advantage fcr the education ot young men and boys. Its reputation is a most enviable one, aud is, of itseif, a high recommendation to the citizens ot Memphis.

The following interesting correspondence had between prominent business men and Mayor Flippin, will attract public attention, now that attention has been turned toward the consideration of the city's indebtedness and her creditors, who seek to collect dollar for dollar by mandimus suits issued from the l-mted States aDd State courts: Memphis, December 28. 1K7H. Hon. John R. Fllppln. Mayor, etc. : Dear Sir Impelled by the interest which we as citizens and tax-payers have in the city of Memphis, we beg leave to address you the following inquiries, viz: First What are the liabilities and assets ot the city at the present time? Second Cin the city carry the di'bt if it were funded as contem plated i lour early answer will oblige. yours irespectfully, .ILIMJI OtK10,, W. H. WOOD, M. L. W EACH AM, W. F. TAYLOR, and others. Me-srs. John Overton. W. IL Wood, M. L.Meacham, w. t. layior, auaotners: Gentlemen Your communication of this date received and I respond briefly to its in quiries. On the first of July last, our finan cial statement shows the entire indebtedness ol the city to have been f 1,669,854 76. This grand aggregate n made up as follows: Under bonded debt S2,Khsi.ooo 00 Fast due bjiided debt 71.000 00 Interest coupons due 3K5.220 00 T. E. Brown. Judgment without Int. . 102,122 Wl Amount due Individuals fcr payments made to pavement contractors with 55 per cent Interest on same. 735.07r 27 Judgment debts 352.723 52 SuuUii Indebtedness 12S.7I3 04 Total debt 84.003,854 7rt Total bonded debl Vi.HKH.IMH) 1)0 Total due debt $1,780,854 70 The bonded debt above stated includes $335,000 compromise bonds. After giving credits for payments made since July 1st, I do not suppose the indebtedness has been in creased more than f 100,000. Our total debt to-day must be about $ 4,770,000. Our nom inal assets on the first day of July last were $2,265,245 01. To these must be added the taxes of 1878 to get our present assets. These will be about $600,000, making total assets $2,805,215 01. This is the situation proximately st jted : Liabilities 84,770.000 Nominal assets 2 ,805,245 But cn the city carry the debt if it were funded as contemplated. The availability of these assets will determine the amount of the funded debt. Lit us examine them: City treasurer's cash forvarlous funds. 804,010 4i5 United Slates marine account due the city 3.080 50 Ten compromise bonds In toe hands of the sinking fund commissioners 10.C00 00 Bonds due by purchasers of city's stock In Memphis and Charleston railroad company, secared by ttust deed 45,01 HI oo Eight bonds held aicolliujral security. 8.00O OO Cash iu hand sinking fund commission 350 31 Making a total of 8131,047 27 available immediately for the payment of debts. Add to this 450,000 of 6iX,0(X) of the taxes of 1878, and we have $581,147 47, which would extinguish that much cf our debt. Deduct this amount from $1,770,000. and we have $1,188,852 53 as our debt, and leaving as assets $2 234,098 54. Now deduct the Sij.OOO compr-imise oonds from our debt of $1,188,853 53, and we have $:;,353, 852 53 as our unf'tind- d dtbt. Of the remain ing assets, $2,231,097 51, there will be about $2,000,000 in back taxes. Inasmuch as any kind of city indebtedness can pay these back taxes levied before 1875, except school or special taxes, then we surely can absorb $1,000,003 of indebtedness in this way. I do not count the interest on any of thee taxes, which will amount to several hundred thou sand dollars. Deduct this million thus taken ud in the payment of taxes from the unfund ed debt. $3,353 852 53, tnd we have left $2,353,852 53 to be funded. We sow have remaining nominal assets $1,284,097 54. This, with the entire inter est on the $2.24,097 54, I throw away as unavailable. This would seem to be a liberal estimate of unavailable asseU. Fund the $2 353,852 53 at fifty cents, and we have $1, 176,925 26; to this add the bonds already funded, and our entire funded debt will be $2,011,926 26. Taking into consideration the bonds funded since last July, the debt would not be over $2,000,000. Can the city carry this debt ? 1 will state the liabilities and assets, and submit the question to the judgment of an enlightened public: For current expenses, siy 8250.000 Interest on f undid debt 120 000 Annual liabilities $370,000 Two per cent, on $2,000,000 wil raise $400,000; from privilege of markethouse, wharfage, marine account, recorder's court, etc., $100,000; total annual assets, $500,000. Annual liabilities, $370,000. Thus it will be seen with such a tax upon values there would be a surplus cf $1:50,000. I confess I feel gratified to see something like general interest being now manifested iu tho settlement of our debt. I have felt rather lonesome from the want of a general co-operation on the part of our citizens in my efforts f r the last eighteen months to compromise this debt. It is a good 6ign to see our people waking up to its great importance, even at this late day. Without the extremest remedy I could conceive of no other mode of settle ment than by a compromise, and believed then and now that this would be mutually beneficial to creditor and debtor. The cred itors bonds have fallen in value just as the city has grown weaker. Ten years ago yes, less than two years, these securities were worth forty cents; to-day, about twenty-six cents on the dollar. The interest which has been collected by the creditor is not so much aa the depreciation of bis bonds. But 1 be lieve what I have written covers yor inqui ries. Very respectfully, JOHN B.

To-morrow evening Mary Anderson and dramatic company will commence an engage ment at the Theater in Evadne, or The Statue. Of the role and Miss Anderson, the New York Times says: "With 'Evadne' Miss Anderson is in full sympathy. The character is one that calls for ingenuousness, simplicity, ten derness, heroism and a degree of passion. It is a character cut out of marble, aud vivi fied, spiritualized with a soul. Miss Ander son suggested this conception, and she was earnest in her efforts to realize it. She made the most of her opportunities. At frequent intervals during the play she rose to a high degree of power; her large gestures, sweep ing movements, and resonant voice came into excellent play. In the second act, where 'Evadne' recoils before 'Vicentio's' accusa tion, her indignation was expressed with re markable force. In the street scene, where the unfortunate lovers are confronted by 'EvadneV angry brother, her despair was full of btrengtb. Finally, in the statue scene, all her talents seemed to combine for an effective climax." Memphis Theater.
