Augustus Hitxf-M, jr., wa accidentally injured yesterday a! teiuoou in the cellar of the saloon formerly owned by Madam' in c nt. Mr. Ilitzfeld was engaged in removing some gaspipe, when workm-.u above him let fall a heavy iron shutter, which struck the unfortunate young man in the head and back, causing painful and very serious in.ii ri.?s. Dr. Kaston was called in. and put the victim under the in'luence of cviates to alle viate the intense sud'ericg. Coal-oil usually explodes and does dam age when poured from i can into a hot stove, aiid upon tnis theme :t poet, sings as follows, in two stanzas: A merry old girl of Ohler. Wnose permanent name was Sophier, One day thus bbgau, "I'll see If 1 can With coal-oil help make up the tire." The mistress was greatly effended 'Cause her stove It could never be mended; Sophier gaaiied -Sploded ; Didn't know It was loaded P. S. The funeral was laigely attended. A week atro a resident of Collierville, in this county, eecured a marriage licence fcm our county court clerk, but although the gen tleman and the lady were engaged to be married, and the happy day set, when the gentleman returned to Collierville the lady refused to wed him. Yesterday anolher gen tleman from Collierville came to Memphis and secured a license to marry the same lady. The result ot his homeward trip has not yet been heard of; but he may be more fortunate than his rival. Yesterday was a raw day. A cold breeze from the northwest swept over the District. Overcoats, external and internal, were in de mand, and fires were in order. Many a man hurried up to a cold stove to warm his hands, and for several minutes did not discover that no fire was therein. Th:3 proves that imagi nation has considerable to do with the sen e itions. Even "Owen Meredith," Dulwer the -younger, squints at this idea when, in Lucille, he 6avs: "Every spendthrift to pas sion is debtor to thcuLt. The Springfield lteiul.Zican tells this timely and seasonable tale on .Love's armu' bearer ( Love's armor bearer goes before And half prepares the way for Love; Faint tires flush In his beardless face, W hile golden lashes droop above. The lovely eyes that shyly glance From side to side; he seems so young; He moves with such exuulslte grace, We quite forget his silent tongue. He runs before, and ail the youth Come out to meet him on the way; Like startled fawns, they peer at him. Half wish, half fear, that hd may stay. Far off they follow where he leads. His flaming torch sheds sparks of Dre; The burning seed blown back, take root, To spring In new and vague desire. The jury in the case of the Stat Charles Wood, colored, indictment for the batchery or murder of Mrs. V. C. Foster, ia uuable to agree upon a verdict aDd remains locked up at the courthouse. One or two of th9 jury, it is reported, hold out for a verdict of acquittal. Many of the jurors are most anxious to get out and be discharged from duress, as an agreement upon a verdict is seemingly impossible. As a general rule ia our criminal court, juries have been dis charged too soon, and it has been often seen tint a few days conriiieuient has brought ibout a verdict. The jurors ia thecaseare as loliows: Al. W . 310i-.tgjmery, A. U. ilarris, M.Riordan, W. Uhluian.jC. D. Arm strong, J. li. Holt, li. C. Woods, X. Ed ward, F . Duncan, h. J. Darns, I. C.

Some weeks since a married woman, a rtsiJent of South Memphis, secured a divorce from her hus band in the chancery court, and an injunction prohibiting him from interfering with her in any manner. Ihe husband, although being cognizant of the divorce proceedings, did not know that a decree had been granted, and bis wife did not tell him abuut it. The par ties made up their quarrel and lived and co habited together as usual until a dav or so ago another quarrel broke out, aud then the woman lntoruied him that thev had been divorced. The case was broutrht ud in tho chancery court and the counsel of the defend ant was mlormed thiit his client was proba biy in contempt ot court for violating the in junction ordering him not fo interfere wit tho woman in any manner. Ihe counsel was amazed, and gravely informed the court th his client knew nothing of the decree or in junction, ana tie wougut u nam that a man could be enjoined from .;ving with his own wile.

CHAMBER OF C0M2LEKCE. Basinet Meeting Held for the Pur pose of Advancim? Sanitary Af fairs and Streets and Hewers in the Taxing-District. The Legislating rc-titiouptl to Levy un Additional Tax or Ihirtj-FIve Cents on the One Hundred Dollars for mic"u Purposes Subscriptions for the 5cw Government. At half-p -.st tiiree o'clock yesterday after noon, a called nu-e-tisg was held at the chamber of comrutiee, for the purpose cf considering sanitary matters and improving ti.e streets in the Taxing-District known as Memphis. Mr. i). P. Hid-'. :.", '.ailed the meeting to dd , and stated the ol jeuls for wcich it was cailcd. Mr. Eiseman, pr-sidect of the cham-L-r ct commerce, was sik and unable to pieside. The secretary read the call tor the m-eting as published hi the daily papers. Mr. Meriwether a-ked if citizens not members would hi.- ji.-.-.u'lted to taJte any part in the meeting. On motion the rniea were suspended, and citizens not members were permitted to ad dress the chamber. Mr. Meriwether read the tax laws of the District as adopted by the legislature of the State. Mr. Meriwether commented on the assessment of taxes, and stated the proposed amendments which will be offered for adop tion in the general assembly. Ue thought that en an assessment ot eighteen million dollars, about one hundred aud fif teen- thou sand dollars would be raised by taxes for 187'J, for sanitary, street and sewerage pur poses. The estimate lor street-paving neces sary for the district is about two million dol iais. As to sewerage about six hundred and thirty-four thousand dollars willie needed, according to tho estimate of eminent en gineer", to complete a proper system of sewerage. i'or stiaighimng the bayou Gayoso probably three hundred thousand dollars will be needed. To place the city in a proper condition it will take at ieu f''rce million dollars. This cannot be done "in a yeur, prr'.'J no1 ia tea y.t:are' j but it ouht to have a beginning in a tnor cugh manner and carry out the adopted sys tem on some scientific plan. The more im portant streets should be paved from yeTir to vear. Without paved streets sewers would be worthless. Pave the streets first. The sewerage is the work of years, and comes in secondary to the street paving. Let the work cf paving aud sewering go on from year to year. He opposed any increase of tho tax at present. Mr. Meriwether commented upon the assumption of power over the property and people of Memphis by Judge Baxter of the United States circuit court, which as sumption of power he felt convinced would ii ver be recognized by the supreme court ot the United States. He opposed high taxes. It was not popular with the people. It was unwise to urge it at the pre.ient time. The new government should not be hampered with a high tax movement. L'-l the people who owe back taxes h::di ait witn leniently and given time to settle up. The new govern ment wants the support, of all classes cf peo ple a.id to oppress nobooy. Ine iegi?!atu will give these back tax-p iyers time to settle up, and ho believed they would do no. Mr, Meriwether opposed an additional levy lor sanitary or street purposes. Mr. E. M. Apperson agreed with Mr. Meri wether as to his views, aud opposed the levy of an additional tax as suggested. Mr. J. F. Frank moved that an additional tax of one-fourth of one per cent, be1 recom mended to the legislature for adoption lor street and sanitary purposes. Mr. Lien Kisemau offered an amendment to make the tax one-haif of one per cent. This tax would itiise ninety thousand dollars on the assessment, of eighteen million dciiais. Our existence depends on our sanitary condi tion during the present and succeeding yean. Anoth.r epidemic would be a great calamity. live us strain ourselves and make r. little sacrifice for Memphis. This will keep capi'al from leaving U3 as has been threatened. He cited the condition of Charleston, South Carolina, which protected herself from yel low-fever epidemics by a hne sanitary condi tion and a strict quarantine. It wa3 his pet idea that tbe property owners and merchants 6hould tax the-aisilvea three, four cr five per cent, to place jVieinptns m a good sanitary condition. We should make soma sacrifice. This may oppress somebody, but a recurrence of yellow-fever would oppress a greater num ber. An additional tax of one-half per cent, will raise sixty or seventy thousand dollars, which is a small thing couip ired with the great benefits to be derived. Applause. Mr. Appertou s ad he had lived here for years. H j thought that a rigid system of quarantine wouid be established this year at New Orleans and other seapoits, which would keep the j ellcw-fever out of this coun try. He moved to lay Mr. Eijernun'a amend ment to Mr. F.auk's motion cn the table. iir. k ranK supported bis motion by a short speech. He wtuid pay five per cent, lor san itary aud other purposes. Ha accepted Mr. Eiseman's amendment to his motion. Mr. V. A. Goodwyn seconded Mr. Ap persoa's motion. He had believed that a heavier tax ought to be levied, but after a conversation had with Major Guy, police and fire commissioner, he had changed his opinion. He did not think: any additional tax waa necessary. The present levy was Eufficieat ,to make the improvements at present necessary. Dr. Porter, police and fire commissioner, agref s with Mfcjor Guy. He, Mr. Goouwjn, would pay the additional tax if levied, but he now opposed the levy ot the same. He was con vinced that it y.ms unnecessary. Mr. Hanau.-r said he came here pre- pateu to voti ior mo au-uuuona; one-rouria per ceut. Dr. Porter informed him th:; such a tax was necessary, but U Dr. l'erter thinks it n it necessary now, he of course did not desire to pav the additional tax Mr. Meriwetner stated that Dr. Porter was willing lo pay the auclitiocal tax, but he thought it would be uuwise to levy the ad ditional tax at present. Mr. J. R. Godj n The people of Memphis now are in fear of the recurrence of another epidemic, aud many people are makiusf ar rangements to leave the cily permanently iu that event. He believed ia the levy of the additional tax aa n u.eans ot secu rity and to protect Memphis. He be-ueved the meeting ougi.t to adopt the recommendation cf the additional le'vy of one-fourth or one-half of one per cent. lie favored Mr. Frauk's original motion, to levy aa additional twentv-nve ceut3 on the one hundred dollars. This would raise forty thousand dollars additional, aud it would be collectable cn the first of March. The tax should bo tecommended and iet the legisla turn act spun the matter as it may see fit. The Shelby couuly delegation will favor it, and be believed the legislature would adopt it. Applause. Mr. Appersou's motion to lay Mr. Eise- uian 3 ameiiUment to Mr. t rank a motion on the table was put and lost. Mr. Eisi'tuau. s amendment lo levy a tax of one-half per cent, for street aad sanitary pur poses was then called up. Mr. John fc. loot said several member of the legislative council of the district favored th-j levying: of the tax. Work has to be done. We must give the men in olfice the means to carry out the neee?ary improve ment. The commissioners must have this money so as to give toeui the means to im prove- tne city. Air. ijodwiu tavored an additional tax of twenty-five cents instead ot fiity cents, as recommended by the ruction, and he bditved the twenty-hve-cent tax would suit a'l peo ple, rich as well as poor, lie asked Mr. Eise man to withdraw his motion tor an increase of the tax to fifty cents. Mr. Eiseiuan withdrew his amendmant of fifty cents. Mr. J. T. Pettit offered an amendment to make it forty per cent, or tourteuths ot one per cent., instead of twenty-five cents as pro posed by Mr. Frank. Mr. (Javin was surprised to see that high taxes were popular in the meeting, and ho opposed it. The taxes had been too heavy, aad we needed lighter taxation in the future. He would not pay htuvy taxes, except under protest. We need strict sanitary measures, aud tha enforcement of fcuch measures will put Memphis in a good condition within sixty days. Let ev-:ry citizen be compelled to put his premises in condition. If you had a mil lion of dollars, yeu canut do anything with it belore the hot weather comes on. He be lieved iu ttringent measures of a sanitary character. This will protect the city tor the present aud (ii.suicg summer, and nothinir else will, lou caunot improve the street! and make sewers ia time. It io impolitic to las uoaung capital out ot existence. Mr. Eiseiuan supported the propose ! levy of the additional twenty-five cents tax. The necessity is upon u?, and wa have to meet it. There are certain sanitary measures that will have to be performed before the hot weather comes upon us. Mr. B. Lowenstein believed in putting their hands m their pockets and pay a tax of seventy-five cents if necessary, so as to im prove our sanitary condition. We should all pay our taxes, real estate as well as personal property owners. Let us help each other now. Applause. Mr. Gavin It is not tbe amount of money mat is now neeaea. vve need a htnet en forcement of sanitary laws. Let each po liceman cn lua beat be held responsible ior nuisances committed in his district, and let such nuisances be abated. We have good sanitary laws, but they have not been en forced. That is where the trouble has been and is now. Mr. Pettit changed hia motion of amend ment so as to make the tax thirty-Eve cent, on the one hundred dollars instead of twenty five cent, as provided by Mr. Frank's mo tion. Mr. Pettit's motion was put and car- neii, auu me raie Tuirty-tive cents adopted by a large majority. waa HELPING THE NEW GOVERNMENT. Mr. Haddcn read the following agree ment, offering to advance certain sums to sustain the new government. He believed the citizens should come forward and ad vance ten cr fifteen thousand dollars to the new tcveinmeut, the amounts to be credited cn their taxes for 1S73: THE AGREEMENT. FkBKLAJtV 14, 1879. We agree to advance the sums affixed to our names for the purpose of cleaning and putting in proper condition the streets and alleys ot the city. The money is to be paid to the commissioners, and each subscription is to be credited ia the amount of money subscribed by him on the taxes to be levied for the current year by the State of Ten nessee.

Mr. Pettit moved that the chamber ot commerce ask our representatives to support any bill favoring or compelling and enforcing the collection of taxes. Carried unanimously. Mr. Page Patterson moved that the citi zens generally be solicited and invited to come forward and sign the agreement to ad vance taxes in support cf the new govern ment. The motion was carried.

The following communication will attract some attention iu the way of ccntesting a claim for a discovery of importance: MkMPms. Tksn., February 12. 1879. The plan for deadening sound on elevated railways, claimed by Mrs. Mary E. Walton, Z ' y. Ynrk; was anticipated some thirteen or fourteen jcars ago by the writer, and was more recently brought into public notice in an article published in the Little Rock Ca zette, at Little Rock, Arkansas, of the date April 15, 1872, in an article on the tunneling of the Mississippi river. Said article was headed as follows: " TUNNELING TIIE MISSISSIPPI RIVER HOW- TO DO IT.' We have received from Mr. J. L. Roach, of this city, a communication submitting a plan for tunneling the Mississippi river, which we have condensed and give the material portiou below, the communication is accom panied by p!au3 and specifications, which we tious, which we r want of the iven, we think, regret we cannot publish lo; proper culs. The plan aa g will be sulncifintly understood without them. The writer enters into many other details as to tne preservation ot too banks, structure of the tunnel, laying of rails, appliances for deadening sound, etc., which we are forced t) omit for v.aut of space. What we have given, however, will sufficiently illustrate how tbe Mississippi will be tunneled, if it is ever to be djne. Ihe appliance tor deaden iag sound, referred to in this article, was the box trough filled with non-conducting pack ing, for the purpose of deadening the sound of a train of cars passing through the tun nf id; the same applies itself to elevated raii- ways, cr, under circumstances whero ccise of a train is an annoyance. the Cat i hi Out and Take with Ion, When you ask for "Dr. C.

TIIE CIIANUJE From Slemphls to a Taxlns-Dlstrlct Mow It la Kea-arded by a 91'Xalry Conaty Friend of Oars. The M'Xain County Sun, in an editorial upon the eurtrnder of the charter of Mem phis, says: "Memphis is no longer an incot porated city, but is a district in Shelby county. Tais is a sad finale to too eagerly sought greatness." "la the heyday of prosperity the city, seeking to advance ti e interests of her citizens, and increase her oun grandeur, involved herself in a debt whkh future and unexpected misfortunes have ren- aerea 11 impossible tor her to meet. 'First came the war, which left the whole south impoverished, and on the Bouth Mem phis depended tor her trade. Notwithstand ing this serious blow, the city continued to grow and increase in greatness, until 1373, when an enemy worse than the uniformed hosU of soldiers who had held her for tiiree years, came and invaded her boundaries, carrying death and destruction to hundreds of her citizens. She was slowly recovering from the almost fatal blow, whea last year the epidemic came again with redoubled violence, scattering terror and death in its course. Tho doomed city was again the restin. place of the dreadtul plague for moatha. Her citizens tied in every direc tion, seeking refuge whither they could from the fearful scourge. Her business was laid prostrate, and terror, sorrow, suffering rnd death wee seen where the busy throngs of active life were wont to be." " Notwithstanding tha great trouble through which the city had jut passed, as soon as they dared btep foot within her boun daries, tbe mercilers Shylocks wn; held the bonds of the city were'cianicriug fcr pay ment. Without allowing the city to rest ind draw breath after the trials through which 6he had struggled, they commenced to press their claims, and the city took the only ave nue left for escape from the f ingsof the mer ciless harpies, and asked this legislature to revoke, the city charter, and to remand tho territory and cituens to tho government of the State. This wna right. Relief from the money changers was an absolute matter of necessity, and it was impossible to get this relief, and breathing time could only bo '"0. taiaed in the way it lias." w illO 91 VI jl ft'rc ft.
