As Lotta eays, "thiDga are getting mixed, but let that pass. Mushy ice continues to float down the Mississippi river. Tho gentle rain fell as usual last night upon the inuddy streets. Nobody in thia city drew a prize in the last drawing of the Louisiana State lottery. Next Monday night, at the Theater, the Williamsons will appear in a play entitled Struck Oil. When Lotta talks slang or kicks her foot in the backstep or double shuffle, the boys in the gallery bowl. Mr. Mandamus is a repeater of the worst description, tie should be arrested by the United States marshal. There will be an election for aldermen and councilmen to-day. None but the best men should be elected. To-day the municipal election will come off in the different ward3 for aldermen, coun cilmen and school visitors. The repeal of the city charter was the talk of the town yesterday, and almost every person favored the measure. At the Theater to-night Lotta will close her engagement in LaCigale, in which drama she will appear in two characters. Yesterday's weather was summer-like overhead and all around, but under loot the streets were damp, muddy and disagreeably dirty. An Odd Couple, by Mrs. Uliphant, ten cents; Milliner and Dressmaker, and Tice's Almanac at 29S Main street, Mansford's new store. None but members and their employes, armed with cards of admission, are now ad mitted to the inner temple of the cotton ex change. Several city office holders are kicking against the repeal of the charter. They look at the question from a salary and office-hold-, icg standpoint only. The shipments of cotton yesterday were 2055 bales, against 512 bales the same day last year; since September 1st, 142,664 bales. Sales yesterday, 3850 bales. Several merchants on Main 6treet yester day had the crossings in front of their stores swept for the accommodation ot pedestrians, the ladies especially. This was a polite and praise woi thy act. To-morrow evening the M'CIellan Guards (colored) will give a minstrel enter tainment at the Theater to their white and colored friends. .Reserved seats can be se cured at Hollenberg's. Several gentlemen have gone to Nash ville in the interest of the bondholders, for the purpose of defeating the bill for the re peal of the city charter. These men are look ing cut tor number one only. The attractions at the Theater next week will be the Williamsons, who have made fame in Struck Oil and the Chinese Question, for whom the plays were especially written. The company is a good one. "What's the ue in electing aldermen and councilmen to-morrow," exclaimed a citizen, yesterday, ' if the charter is going to be repealed ? Do they want to sit down at the city hall and take in mandamuses?" The United States court "mandamuses" loom up grandly at present. Yesterday man damuses tor some forty thousand dollars were issued against the city. The bondholding creditors are determined to be in at the death. Not a copy of yesterday morning's Ap peal could be had tor love or money yester day afternoon. The publication of the bills repealing the charter and organizing the new government was the atLaction with the people. Up to twelve o'clock last night not an arrest had bten nu'de by the police. The dockt was a blank. Some thirty tramps se cured lodging, and were registered in the following style: Name, place of birth, oc cupation and ae. The street-car superintendent favors the repeal of the city charter, because he thinks it will save him the cost and trouble of keep ing the street in good repair between the railroad tracks; but the repeal may have quite the opposite effect. The confirmations referred to in yester day morning's Appeal took place at Cal vary Kpihcopal church, Bishop (jjintard officiating. The manuscript sent to the Ap peal was so horrible that it read anyway and meant almost anything. Yesterday the remains of the late Miss Mollie 13. Moon were disinterred at Grand Junction, conveyed to this city, and were in terred at Elmwood cemetery. Rev. Dr. White, of Calvary Episcopal church, read the funeral services at the grave. Loud talking at the Theater during the performance is becoming a nuisance. Re peating aloud to your friend all the funny things which Lotta gets erf is another nuis ance. The nuisances complained of are com mitted not only by men, but by women. The following officers for Shelby lodge, No. 41, I. O. M. A., were installed last even ing by J. I. Prewott, D. (J. V: 1). A M'Oni ber. 'iroident; W. It. Sims, vice-president; P. 1 Jones, secretary; John W. Brush, treasurer; S. if. Lamb, Hun Cary and W. Q. Allen, trustees. The receipts of cotton yeoterday aggrer gated 702 bales, against 1430 bales the cor responding day last year; since September 1st, 217,600 bales, against 254,136 bales at the same time last year, a decrease of 37,527 bales. Stock on hind, running account, 75,899 bales. During a sociable had at Mrs. Phillips', No. V9 Madison street, on Tuesday night lasf, an elopement took place, and in a short time the bride and ,-room re Ote.FiDJie&co turned from St. John's (Methodist) church, corner of Vance and Lauderdale streets. The groom was Mr. J. B. M'Bnde, of the Mis sissippi anil Tennwtsfe; railroad company, and the bride Miss Lly Phillip. An elegant supper was provided at once for the happy couple and thir friend!:. Yesterday morning the old brick wall of the ruios of the late fire whi h destroyed the Star cotton g'n, on the corner of Third and Union streets, tumbled iu with a loud Crash, and half-buried in the ruinx two children who were playing near tne dangerous life-trap. The children were severely, but not seriously injured. The old walls of the burned g:u are uioht dannierou-., and should be palled down by the authorities. The walU are lia ble at any moment to tumble down and kill tlioso passing along the sidewalk. The Haihruif h'ecord, over which Con ductor Barney Hughes (-resides, contains many curious apliori-tns. To is: found in the January issue asfol!owi: "Theatrical (stars are like poker all in the draw." "Lotta fellows are glad that the little girl has come." "Politic aud pavements are Memphis evils." "There is an epidemic among noses-r-they arc all running." A commentator on the aphor istn.1 of Hippocrates defines an aphorism to be "A saying poor in expression but rich in sentiment." Bainey Hughes, in the current number of his Rail tea y Record, under the heading " Marriage of Texas and the Southeast," has the following: " This ceremony has bevn performed by the M fin phis and Charleston railroad, which h is now a schedule, between Memphis an'i ( Vn.r: ,ni - L'a, which cannot be equaled by in , ; ;i'r.. Takes up, immedi ately, the couiif. !i from Texas, via the Memphis and LiLtL- Uxk railroad, avoiding detention at Memphis and any omnibus or tedious transfers. It has a rail connection joining the M-mph! .ir-.l Little Rock railroad so intimately fh.-t t'i movement from one t the other can only h) lected through the conductor. Travelers going toaud returning from Texas can rely upon tbia schedule, and give themselves much gratification by acting on the recommenctaiion to ouy ineir ticKeis over the Memnhin nnd Charleston railroad." PEKSOINALS. Mr. Logan Wai.kkk, editor of the Holly Springs Reporter, is in the city. Mk. R. Galloway will not be a candidate for councilman in the third ward. Lieutenant Wygant of the Twenty fourth United States infantry, is in the city, and will open, pursuant to orders from the war department, a recruiting office. Visitors registered at the cotton exchange, yesterday, were as follows: George W. Kline, Vicksbuig; A. M. Austin, Browns ville, Tennessee; P. C. Taylor, St. Louis; J. W. Morton. New York. Mu. C. B. Griste, advance agent of the Williamsons, who appear at the Memphis Theater next week in Struck Oil and Chi nese Question, arrive d in the city yesterday, and will remain till Sue day. Mr. A. D. H. Akmstead, son of Colonel George Armstead, was married on Wednes day evening to Miss Martha Eldridge, daugh ter of Judt;e T. D. Eldridge. Rev. Mr. Harris, of the Methodist church, officiated. A dispatch from New Orleans, last night, stated that Miss Louise Pomeroy, actress, who was injured in a railway accident near Shreveport, on the tenth i-jstant, is reported by her attending physician to be very low. Mies Stella Willis is improving, and the rest of the company, who were more or less in jured, have recovered. Hon. Henry Watterson, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, is booked for a lecture at Chattanooga next Friday night. The editor of the former Chattanooga Rebel ought, says the Nashvilie American, to be at home under the soades of old Lookout, and will, doubtless, receive an ovation nt the hands of the Chattanoogans. Air. Walter son also lectures at Knoxville Saturday night, and at Atlanta Monday night. A relative of General Albert Sidney Johnston sends to the Paris True Kentuckian the following: "General Albert Sidney Johnston (bin middle name is spelled as I give it) was married twice. His first wife was Henrietta Preston, sister of General William Preston. By her he has two chil dren living: Colonel William Preston John ston and Miss Henrietta P. Johnston, who lived with him iu L'-xington, Virginia. His second wife, who survives him, was Liis3 Eliza Griffin, a cousin of his first wife. She resides in San Francisco, and has the follow ing children : Hancock .lohustou, who lives in Los Angeles, California, about thir y years of age; a married daughter, Mrs. Prichard, aloo living in San Francisco; a son, Griffin Johnston, aged about twenty, nnd Virginia, aged about sev-'nleeu." A 31 1 1 S E 31 E X T S . Memphis Theater, Lotta, whose natural movement is a waltz- step, and her most comfortable movement a jump in some unknown direction, appeared as Zip, in a play of taat name, at the Theater last night. As to the play itself, there is not much in it, from a dramatic standpoint, but it serves to bring out Litta's strong points and specialties. She is a curi ous compound of animation, and acts as if she had succeeded in discovering that wild dream carted perpetual motion. She is never still; either her feet, mouth or hands are in motion. Many ot her movements are con tortions of the body, at once wonderful and exceedingly comical. She has the power of acting and speaking simultaneously, and it is impossible to wr.tch her move ments, or follow her rapid speech, without being excited to immoderate laughter. She is a genius in her way. She has many imi tators, but no equals in her peculiar lines of business. No wonder she is popular with the young men of every city. She is a rowdy at times, and then again extremely graceful and captivating. From the grave to the gny and back again she travels with rapidity. In Zip she was wall supported by the company, and especially by 1 . A. Anderson, as Jules Galetti;" Ed Marble, as "Philosophy Jack," and ftl.ssyJulia Uatchett, as Amanda love lace." To-night Lotta will close her brief, but successful, eagagement in La Cigale. The M'CIellan Uoards. To-morrow night, and at a matinee on Saturday, complimentary benefits will be tendered to the M'CIellan Guards at the Memphis Theater. The entertainment will consist of minstrel business, of the oho and specialty characters. The M'CIellan Guards jubilee singers will appear, likewise " Little Jub," the infant proditrv. The dress-circle and parquette will be re served for white people, and one-half of the tamily-circle will be reserved lor the colored people. Admission to to-morrow night's en tertainment, one dollar. To the matinee. fifty cents. The object of the entertainment is to provide uniforms tor the Guards. LAW REPORTS.

MANDAMUS. How tne Old Thine Warns In the CoarU, nnd How Much It Coats the Prompt Tax-payern by Repeat lag Itaelf Many Time. The Prompt Tax-payer Cornea to the Front and Pat I'd Him Money Krr alarly, -while tbe Iellninent Mees Him Do It. and Maalle Mardonlrally. The repsal of the city charter, so as to defeat the levying of mnndamuses issued by the hundred from the United States courts, was the genera! topic of conversation yester day in the streets and at ail places ot busi ness. The stand tal.en by the Appeal in favor of the repeal of the charter, regarding it as a last resort to save the tax-paying people from bankruptcy and ruin, created pleasurable surprise and met wit h hearty cmi mendation among all clauses of citizens, except a few clamorous and hard-hearted bond holders, who care not what may happen all other people, so they receive their dollar on a loity-cent bond investment. The ruanda mus bUKinesti has injured trade no little. and if permitted to be earned on will event ually drive every business man out of the city and leave Memphis a commercial wreck. to float down the stream of time an object of pity. Uur reporter investigated the manda mus question and learned many startling tacts, livery mandamus served on the gen eral council, by either 'he officers ot the United States courts or the officers cf the Slate courts, calls for big cost bills. A mandamus issued from the United States courts carries with it the following bill of costs, which has to be paid by the tax-paters Clerk's fees, fifteen dollars and twenty-five cents; marshal's fees, twelve dollars and twenty-four cents; district attorney's fee ten dollars. Total amount of fees, thirty- seven dollars and louity-nine cents The city has already paid no less than twen ty-five thousand dollars cott-i in these cases, although none of the cases are litigated, ser vice being always acknowledged. Yesterday an attorney had a lot of past-due coupons. amounting to some forty thousand dollars, upon which he applied for mandamuses that will be served at the next meeting of the general council. double taxation. When a peremptory mandamus is served on the mayor and general council it means, imperatively, either to levy the tax as or dered to satisfy the mandamuses, or go to jail for contempt ot court. The tax is levied, and the merchants and other business men. who are prompt tax-payers, settle up and get receipts, the entire amount ot tax necessa ry to satisfy the mandamuses is never col lected, the delinquents remaining delin quents, and having no personal properly upon which to make speedy levy and force a sale. It takes time to collect the tax from delinquent real estate owners. When it is discovered that the amount collected will not meet the judgments in full, the attorneys of the bondnoiders go into the United States courts and make a showing of this fact; another mandamus is at once issued, wilb ccsts as before, and the general council is or dered to make a new levy of tax to satisfy the deficiency. The merchants and other business men, who paid their mandamus tax promptly are called upon again, and have to pay another pro rata on the very same mandamus; and should the levy of tax fail to realize the expected amount, another mandamus tor the remainder is is sued and levied, and paid by the same men No legitimate business can stand this press ure. It would soon close all business houses. because a few prompt tax paj-ers cannot af ford to pay the entire mandamus taxes. And the prompt tax-payer has no recourse upon the delinquent tax-payer, because the tax is a general one on the entire taxable property of the city, real and personal, and not a pro rata tax as far as the mandamus creditor is con ccrned. So the prompt tax-payer, after pay ing the eauic mundaruus tax over and over again, is left in the lurch and cannot get hack a cent cf the money paid out by him fur delinquents. now to escape paying taxes. Several lawyers and many sharp delinquent tax-payers are ot opinion that when the prompt tax-payers pay the entire mandamus taxes and satisfy the judgments, then the city cannot collect mandamm tax from them, because the judgments have been satisfied. This is a sharp dodge, and may work weil in the event of the mandamus judgments being paid in full by the prompt tux-payers. L'ut whether they are correct in their opinion or not, the prompt tax-payers whose person al property can be levied upon and sold if they do not pay, have to come to the front with their money every time the mandamus taxes are assessed. WHAT THE llOKriHOl.DI-.HH ARE DOING. The bond and coupon holders, feanng that the legislature will abolish the city charter, are acting on the advice of their lawyers and are filing coupons in the courts so as to get judgments and mandamuses, they believing that judgments present a better legal shape than the bonds and coupons. In this manner nearly the entire past-due indebtedness of the city has assumed the shape and form of judgments. Should the charter be repealed these judgment creditors will then make a big fight in the United States and State courts for the enforcement of their man damuses and the collection of their claims dollar for dollar. But no more litigation will ensue than is going on at present; and should the repeal of the charter by the legis lature be held constitutional by the courts, then the hungry and thirsty bondholders will no doubt seek a compromise at a fair rate, but not until then.

Among the many stupendous architectural works of anHquity, which surprise us by their extent, their beauty, and the wonderful difficulty ot their construction, the Roman Coliseum stands out prominent, its ruins re fuse to perish, nnd there they stand, in colos sal majesty, the astonishment ot all behold ers. So with caiboline, the deodorized ex tract of petroleum. It is the most stupen dous work ot chemic art. Prepared without the aid ot acids or alkalies, and without dis tillation. It is free from color, completely deo.lotized, and agreeably perfumed. It is so pure, in fact, that it can be taken inter nally without the slightest inconvenience to the most delicate organs, and so penetrating in its nature that, applied as a hair-dressing and restorer, it seems to penetrate to the roots of the hair at once, and set up a radi cal change from the start. It is the only ar ticle that will restore the hair on bald heads, eradicate dandruff, soften and beautify the hair, and is the best hair restorative ever in vented. Sold Ly all dealers in drugs and medicines, W. H. Brill & Co., Fifth Avenue pharma cy, Pittsburg, say: "It affords us pleasure to add our names to your already long list of recommendations for your valuabls hair restorer, 'carboline. We have fold prepara tions for the hair for upward of twenty years; but have never had one to sell as well or give such universal satisfaction. We have exam ined your carboline with the greatest care, and find it contains nothing whatever injuri ous to the hair or general health. We there fore recommend it with confidence to our friends and the general public." Give the old man a chance to tell how he has suffered for years with "the shakes," or fever and ague.

Let him use Reed's gilt edge tonic, taking a wine-glass full three times a day be fore meals, and he will receive 6peedy relief. The most obstinate cases yjeld to it, as do all bilious and malarial levers. It is pure and wholesome. Vrof. James A.

The warm weather of the iat few days and more especially of the past twenty-tour hours, has settled the question of the ice- blockade at this point. No doubt exists in the minds of experienced river men that the ice, which barely extends two hundred yards from this shnre, is the "tail end" of the Ohio rivi r ite. Why they should call it tail end. iinies it be like an elephant with a tail at both ends, we are unable to say; they doubt less think that under the warm influence ol the southoily breeze now blowing the re maining ico in the Ohio nver will melt and di-appear b..fore reaching Memphis. Agents inform us that they are receiving freight for ntcamers up and down. Our dispatches of last evening state that, th lee is moving al most the entire length of the Ohio rver. Our local packets have all resumed their regular trips, and are in nowise discommoded by the ice iu Ihe river, as it is soft and mushy. The Arkansas shore, opposite the city, is entirely clear of ice, and should t'.is warm weather continue two or three days longer, the river will be altogether clear of ice.
