Many of our readers who participated in the campaigns of the western army, and par ticularly around Corinth, will remember this day as the anniversary of the retreat of Gen eral Bragg from Corinth, and the beginning of the famous Kentucky campaign. The company raised in southern Illinois was not attached to the Thirteenth Tennes see, but was attached to the Fifteenth Ten nessee, under Colonel Carroll. We think the name of the captain was Chambers, and they held out the idea of enlistment from that locality. There is, and has Jbeen, no desire on the part of the colored people of this city or sec tion of country to emigrate to Kansas. There are a tew old, sore-headed colored politicians who are endeavoring to stir up the matter, but they intend remaining here to the last. If these chronic office-seeking colored poli ticians were to emigrate to Kansas, or any other distant point, Memphis and Shelby county would be a great gainer thereby. At the chancery court, yesterday, a bill praying for a divorce was filed by fJary Wig gins vs. Tbomas Wiggins. Mary Wiargics, formerly Mary Robinson, alleges that she and Thomas intermarried at Memphis, in 1874. Soon after Thomas began to develop strange phases of character, viz.: Mutilating articles of wearing apparel, shoes, gloves and dresses; in fact, he rendered everybody around him miserable. He neglected all industrial pur suits, and beenme a professional juror around the courthouse; that ha ha9 deserted com plainant, and refuses to support her, where fore she prays for a divorce a vinculo. OfiRev JHeary Ward Beecher's lecture at Cincinnati, the Commercial, of that city, says: "The lecture occupied nearly two hours in its delivery, but the audience would at tentively have sat out another hour, had Mr. Beecher chosen to elaborate it. Tbe ap plause was frequeut, the sympathy quick and appreciative. There were passages that moved to tears by their pathetio beauty, and illustrations that carried the audienco to the other extreme. Mr. Beecher has lost nothing of his power over an aadiecce. Ha sways it to his will as trees are moved by tno wind. At the circuit courl, yesterday, the case of the State ccainst Wm. Boregard, indict ment for murder, was called for trial. Eight jurors were secured np t the adjournment ot court last evening. Dfregaru, wno is a fisherman and wrecker, doirg business above the islands, stands indicted for the murder ot a white man a year or so ago. 1 ne charge is that he broke the tkull of a man, then turned him loose, with his littlo boy, in a skiff, near Bradley's landing.

A Bill Ylled by Miner Meriwether, Back-Tax Galieeter and Receiver, to nforee the Payment of Taxes. ' The following synopsis of a bill filed at the chancery court, by the State back-tax collect or and receiver, Major Minor Meriwether, will be heard to-day by Judge Pierce, of the circuit court, on a motion for a demurrer tiled by the defendant, W. E. Butler: The State ot Tennessee vs. William K. Butler et aL in the chancer; court or Shelby county. The State of Tennessee, by Minor Meri wether, receiver and back-tax-collector of the extinct municipality, the city of Memphis, brinas this bill in behalf ot all creditors ot said extinct corporation who may come in and establish their claims in this proceeding, against William b. Butler and others named as defendants, who were indebted to said ex tinct municipality at the time of the repeal of the charter, tor taxes imposed by said corpo ral ion before the repeal of its charter. 1. The act. chanter 10, passed January zy, 1S79, repealed the charter of Memphis, re manded the territory and inhabitants to the Kovernment of the State, abolished all of fices, withdrew all taxing power and reserved it to the legislature, and placed all public property in the custody and control of the State, to remain public property for the uses to which it baa hitherto been applied. 2. The act. chanter 11, passed simultane ously with chapter 10, established the gov ernment of the Taxing-District over the for mer territory and inhabitants, and the four teenth section of said act vested all the back taxes in the State to bo applied to the extin guishment of the debts of the corporation, as may be provided by future legislation. 3. In oursuance oi tnis intention the act. chapter 92, passed thirteenth March, 1379, provides for the appointment by the govern or of a receiver and back-tax collector, charged with the duty of collecting said taxes for the purpose of paying said debts. He is empowered to file a general creditors bill in behalf of all creditors against all delinquent tax-payers the object being to embrace all in one proceeding. The act authorizes the payment ot said taxes lor the years prior to 1875, in tfive annual instalments, and in co n promise bonds at par, judgments at fifty-five per cent, of their face, and otber indebted ness at ono-half the face value; and author izes payment of said taxes for years subse quent to 1374, in the same instalments and in indebtednes at the same rates, except where the vested rights of creditors demand a spe dier collection in current money, and then to ba collected in accordance with such right. All priorities and vesled rights are to be de termined by the court in this proceeding, and the moneys collected are to be paid by the re ceiver into the State treasury, to be held sub ject to such equities and to be paid out under the direction ot tne cuanceuor. 4. Under this act, chapter 92, Minor Meri wether was appointed receiver and back-tax collector, aud Have bond and qualified March 31. 1879. . 5. At date of repeal of the charter the city of Memphis was indebted to sundry per sons in a large sum, and there was due to it from sundry delinquent tax-payers a large sum the precise amounts of debits and credits cannot now be given, but will be ex hibited during the progress of the case. Tbe defendant, W. E. Butler, was indebted for taxes, duly assessed and impoted accord ing to law by the corporate authorities of Memphis, before the repeal of the charter, and is still so irrkbted, as folio wb: (Hers fol lows a statement of the taxes, description of the property and years for which imposed. A similar declaration and statement follows of a large number of other delinquents.) The bill then proceeds: "The complainant has reason to believe many other persons are similar indebted, and reserves the right to set them out hereatter in a supplemental bill as the facts may be ascertained. The com plainant then prays that said defendants be required to appear and answer the bill; that they be required to discover any other taxes and property for which they may be indebt ed; that a lien be declared on all said prop erty for said taxes, and that said property be sold for their payment; that publication be made to creditors to come in and establish their claims, etc. " H.2J.H. riXAFOBE!

The New Oileans Times, of the twenty eighth, says: "Captain Paul Boyton com pleted his voyage down the Mississippi yes terday afternoon, arriving opposite Canal street at half-past six o'clock. A hundred skiffj and several tugboats, all alive with people, encircled the hero, until Canal street was reached. The wharves, the boats and shipping, for blocks away, were swarming with expectant humanity, who cheered lusti ly, almost drowning in their vociferations the whistles of the steamboats, which looked a hearty welcome. The Canal street ferryboat steamed out into tbe river with a thousand passengers to greet the captain, and tugs from both banks followed until the river was full ot every imaginable craf t. Captain Boy ton stepped on tie wharf at precisely half- past six o'clock, and was driven to the City J hotel, wnere ne gave tne iouowing recoru of his extraordinary voyage: He loft Oil City, Pennsylvania, at twenty minutes past eleven o'clock, Thursday forenoon, February 6th. The channel of the Allegheny was then one foot and a half in depth, with the water's temperature at one degree below freezing point. His Hut run of 48 miles to Emlenton was made in twenty-lour hours. On Sunday afternoon he arrived at Pittsburg, a distance of 145 miles from Emlenton. From Emlen ton he made six runs to Belle Air, on the Ohio, a distance of 94 miles. " He occupied an entire week in making this distance, ow ing to the icy obstructions with which the river was full. From Pittsburg to Cairo, 1090 miles, he progressed very slowly, suffering considerably from the very cold water. He had now reached the Mississippi, and though he had lost much time in the Ohio, his pro gress down the father of waters is remark able. From Cairo to Cottonwood, 130 miles, he made in thirty hours. From Cottonwood to Bradley plantation, 100 miles, he made in twenty-eight hours, having to buffet against very strong head winds, which he encountered all the way. From Cottonwood to Memphis, 20 miles, he made in four hours; from Memphis to Helena, in twenty-one hours. The distance between these two points is only 82 miles, but Captain Boyton lost 17 miles by following a steam boat down a bend, making the distance swam 99 miles. From Helena to Arkansas City, 160 miles, in thirteen hours the quickest t'.me made during tbe voyage. From Arkan sas City to Miliiken's Bend, 140 miles, in thirty-two hours. From thence to Vicksburar, 20 miles, in four hours. From VickBburg to Natchez, 109 miles, in twenty-six hours. From Natchez to Baton Rouge, 140 miles, in thirty-three hours. He left Baton Rouge at eight o'clock Saturday morning, occupying thirty-four and a half hours in making his last run of 134 miles, remaining in the water longer than he had at any time previous. The entire distance swam by Captain Boyton is reckoned at 2342 miles." Hreraer, Uerzog & Co.

OUR 11D1CAI college Baa Already Won Friends In Sllasls alppl It "Speaks tne Continued Prosperity of ood Old Memphis." Occasional Correspondent of the Appeal Winojia, April 28. I read with much satisfaction the account as published in last Friday's Appeal of the preparatory celebra tion of the Memphis medical colloge. I say with satisfaction, because tbe founding of such an institution bespeaks the continued prosperity of good old Memphis, and affords a gratifying evidence that however much she has of late felt the pressure of affliction's heavy hand, the spirit of a laudable enter prise raises its fair front which will ultimate ly, it is to be hoped by the well-wishers cf the Bluff City, enable her to prosper apaie not only in her commercial, but in every other interest that will tell of a healthy and perma nent growth. The founding of the medical college is a step taken in the right direction, and one which fostered, as it must surely be, will prove reflective of great credit to the good natud of Memphis in scientific circles everywhere. Adopting this hope, because I trust in its fulfillment, I have thought it would not be amiss in these friends of Mem phis, scattered as they are in various sections of the south, and who desire for her a pros perity commensurate with her geographical position and the untiring energy ot her citi zens, to aid in every effort they caa best put forth, an enterprise like the one in question. To do this efficiently is to do it rightly, and every individual influence carefully aggre gated will tend to efficiency. To the young gentlemen of Mississippi who have now, or in the future may have an inclination toward the medical profession, it must be a matter cf congratulation that the ways and means therefor have been brought, as it were, to their respective homes; and ic is to be hoped that in the future, instead of going to distant cities in search of a medical education, they will seek the halls of the Memohis college, whose faculty will compare favorably with those of racrj distant and, therefore, more expensive schools of medi cine and its cognate branches. Of the faculty of the Memphis medical college it is enough to say that their individual reputation, grouped into a whole, foretells its success a success which will add many a cubit to the intellectual stature of Memphis, and, in adding parenthetically, that the names of Drs. W. E. Rogtrsand Dudley D. Saunders will, (in themselves, prove to be a tower of strength. I am sure that their able coad jutors will not impute to me a desire of draw ing an invidious comparison; but, knowing Dr. Saunders more intimately than I do his learned compeers, I would say to the young gentlemen of Mississippi, who may contem plate a search after a medical education, that they will find in Dr. Dudley D. Saunders a preceptor fitted in an eminent degree to in struct them in all the enncbiirg arcana un derlying that part of the science taught by his chair. More than this; they will be faith fully indoctrinated into an equally important branch ot a thorough education that of morality; fcr, in this most important feature in life's curriculum, Dr. Saun ders studied and became proficient in its precepts so uniformly and health fully inculcated p round tbe hearthstones of his parental roof in Lawrence county, Alabama, where morality and chivalry were wont to dwell together in a wisely-regulated harmony, and where nature reveled in voice less melody, responsive to tho blended tones of love and purity that issued thence. In such a moral school was Dr. Saunders trained, and the students who may join his clots will find in his personal and professional relation to them every attribute of the elegant gen tleman and learned man, which, by diligent ly studying and remembering, will Gt them to take high rank, not ia the line of their profession only, but to become important factors in the summation of a life usefully and honorable spent. delta.

The Farmers of tbe Ulae Grass Want Petty Criminals to be VlOkKCd In 11 ace of Imprisoned A llaestton of .Economy. Lexington, Kt., April 26. The idea of economy is promoting in Fayette county the belief that the whipping-past ought to be re-establisned for the punishment of minor offenses. It is, perhaps, not an exaggeration to say that the race for the legislature from the county is made upon that question. The candidate is asked, "Are yen in favor of the whipping-post?" If he is not, that settles it as far as he is concerned. The present senator, Hon. P. P. Johnson, has injured his popularity because he voted against the whipping-post bill in the last legislature, and the farmers express no sympathy with Hon. T. J. Bush, in his rare in the city, because he also opposed a practice condemned in nearly all civilized communities. There are two candidates for the legislature from this coun ty, Ex-County Judge J. T. Stevenson, who undoubtedly favors the whipping-post, and Mr. Tom Bryan, whose opinion cn that subject has not yet been published. It is morally certain that the smart est man in the county, if epposed to the rawhide, could be beaten easily in a nom ination for oflice by an inferior person who favored that method of punishment. The cause of this eagerness tor the whipping post ' is the desire to save money to the cout ty, and to the farmers as well as tax payers, by obviating the necessity of impris onment in the county jail to await trial. The feeling is carried to such an extent that grand jurors refuse to find indictments for petty larceny where tbe prisoners have lain in jail for any length of time awaiting trial. It is even suid that there is a tacit under sttnding among the farmers to find indict ments k r minor offenses, and thus force the legislature into the adoption of the measure, which is to them a panacea for the ill to which they are subject by reason of negro depredation. Whether there be such an un derstanding I am unable to say positively, but I kuo of one inbtauce where the evi dence was overwhelmingly convincing, where even the offender confessed to the theft of a considerable sum of money, and yet no in dictment was returned. On tbe third Mon day of May, the Fayette circuit court will convene. The docket is crowded with cases and the jail is f ull of criminals awaiting in vestigation by the grand jury, whose action ii looked forward to with interest. - Possible grand jurors have in some instances given public expression to their sentiments, and the people who heard them are curious to see how they will act as between their preju dices and their oaths. The sentiment of this community is against tbe whipping post, and if the issue is that or nothing, the city can stand the consequences a little better than the county. Female Scanty. There is a Rabbinicial story which tells the value in which pearls were held in the early ages, only one object in nature being thought to be placed above them; "On approaching Egypt, Abraham locked Sarah in a chest, that none might behold her dangerous beauty. But when he was come to the place of paying customs the collector said, pay ug the cus toms; and he said: 'I will pay the customs.' They said to him, 'Thou earnest clothes; and he said: 'I will pay for clothes.' Then they said to him: 'Thou earnest gold; and he answered them : 'I will pay in gold.' Oa this they fuither said to him: 'Surely tbou bearest the finest silk?' He replied: 'I will pay my custom for the finest silk.' Then said they; 'Surely it must be pearls that thou t.ikebt with thee?' and he only answered: 'I will pay for pearls.' Seeing that they could name nothing of value for which the patriarch was not willing to pay custom, tbey said: 'It cannot be, but open thou the box and let us see what is within.' ihrv nnenp.d the hnx. ft ml tha vhnln XanA of Egypt was illuminated by the luster of I e l I 1 ' r j: xi 1 - ottmu a uvauiy iar exueeuing even mat OI pearls."

EVERLASTING "f AMES KIHKIiAND, IK.LiER IX Tir-n. Himlrrv and CWIoven INTERNATIONAL TROTTING. Success of th Americas Harse M potted Cole la a 3Iatea. for 200 a Hide. Not only is the American thoroughbred now at the high-tide of Buccess in England, but American trotling-horsea are also loom ing up. Sjme few weeks ago the three-year-old Kentncky-bred filly, Miss Douglass, won the Muswell Hill stakes, heats of about two miles, trotting the trial heat in 5:29 1, and the final heats in 5:20 and 5:10. Tlie trot took place over the Alexandra park course, where, on the seventh, the littlo horse once so well known at Fleetwood park, Brooklyn driving-park, aod other trotting resorts near New York as tha Spotted Colt, won a match at a mile for a stake of two hundred pound a side, beating the bay horse Defense, who was bred in Walei, and has won a number of trotting handicaps and matches at Alexandra park, Manchester and Loatrton. The Spotted Colt is now owned by Mr. J. Blumson, a res ident of Shoreditch, London. The following account of the race, from the Sporting Life, not only tells how it was won, but is a lair indication of the interest taken in such sport ing events in England: "The race was set for four o'clock, and long before that time upward of four thousand persons surrounded the crieket-ground and trotting-track fence, and as punctuality, aB a ruh is the order of the day at Alexandra park, the horses in their sulkies wero on the track quite by the hour specified in the articles, the Spotted Colt being diiven by Malcolm M'Lachlas, while Defense, looking wonder fully well, was trotted by that well-known London trotting 'jarvey, Billy Pea. Alter a little fuss as to which way of the tracli they should trot, Mr. Blumson gave way, which as regards preliminaries lei'i nothing to do but to toes for choice of sides, and Mr. Hillier winning he of course placed Billy Pea and Defense next the rails, though as the starting-point from the scratch post is a little bit on the circle little or no advantage is gained from this, so that everything was really fair and square for one as for the other. The referee for the first time at Alexandra park rode tho match throughout, and thanks to the kindness of bis old couniing friend, Mr. Waterer, of Tottenham, for the loan of h i dun cob, he was able to be just where he wanted in every portion of the contest. Within a few minutes ot the time appointed both acia:als, looking wonderfully well, walked up to the mark, and at the second at tempt at the word 'Go!' a capital start was eifectf d, while to show how evenly they got away together it may be mentioned that for the first two or three strides there was barely six inches difference, but a triSe further on Defense began to shuttle about and Spotted Colt, being well on his legs, quickly drew clear, until Malcolm, finding that he was suf ficiently in frcnt, took the inside berth, and stretching further away was five lengths in advance as tbey went down the hill behind the bicycle pavilion, whence trotting straight but not fast, he increased his lead alter plan ing the baths to half a dozen lengths. In this position M'Lachlan kept his horse until half the distance had been covered, when, so well was he going and such a cei tain ty did the race look that the partisans of Spotted Colt gave him a loud cheer, which he seemed to relish very nicely, as he pricked his ears and dashed a trifle farther away, but coming to the descent by the swings tbe driver of Defens;, trying all he knew, got a little nearer. However, going past tne big tree opposite the baths the Spotted Colt again ap pepred to have speed of the Birmingham horse, as he once more drew farther away, and going up the straight for home in a very jaunty fashion, ultimately passed the winning post by about seven lengths. Time (very low), 2m. 52i. Defense was made favorite just prior to the start, the odds being five to four on, at which price a lot of money changed hands, not only on the event, but on the time it was thought the 'trot' would oc cupy, it being booked almost as a certainty that the winner would compass tho mile in 2m. 40.

The Gaulle's Iron ton (Ohio) special says Mrs. Gates, who was supposed to have died in childbirth, was buried at Proctorsville, twenty miles above Ironton, on Saturday.
