The Appeal, in publishing the following appeal to ex-Conledtratea, nrgai upon them to comply with it end give what they can tor the children of the brave Geaeval liood: To the Ex-Confederates: When (i -npral Uood died, hU last utter ance was: "I bequoatbfl my children to the oldierj of the laid." Though months have elapsed tince that hoar, 1 have never yet seen a response from the sjldiers of the lost cause that they were willing to assist his orphans; all the aid that has hZen extended to them has been from individuals. As time passes away, each year iTTminiHhf'S their number, and it is now as it was in the last days of the Confederacy when our soldiers died there were nose to fill their places, and now, es pecially, they wiltbc hlled no more forever. General Hood's orphans are nine in number; the eldest is but, ten .years old, and it will .Ukv , years before even that one can vq aid lor itself, and it will re quire a large amount of means to rear them to maturity. On the joyous Christmas day, when the angels proclaimed peace on ea rib and Kood-wiil to man; when each soldier be stows a iH upon his children or those of a dear relalivd. - let ' him ' remember those in- helpless infancy, who were made ...Julberlesa ' ..and mother less, in a lew short il.iya of each other.

And be thought after making a visit He'd send each a Christmas present. So he purchased from this store and that Borne toys aud one thing or other. Not forgetting a Hoe Christinas turkey, Wblcb ue hoped lo eat wlib his mother. There were candles and Jellies "for the children,' A s'lk dreos fur bis "dear cousin Fan;" A new suit of clothes for the boys And a One silk hat for tbe old man. A small French clock and a picture Of a woman, a crocs and some rocks. With an extravagant sky overhead, Completed tbe lot la tbe box. When packed up he went to tbe express, And asked them tbetr cbarges to state; But be thought two dollars too much. And concluded t3 send It by freight. Two days after Cbrlstmns the box arrived; Freight train's not so fast as express; Brlues there'd been a small run-ofl. And the contents were mixed In a mess. The silk hat was stuff jd In tbe turkey; The jelly had gotten a knock. And ruined tbe clothes and the silk. And greased all tbe works of the clock. The old woman scolded and fumed; I'oasin Fan cried over ber dress; And the old man asked with an oath, Why didn't ou send by express?" Then that young man went down In the cellar Ami tried to count up what he lost; But wben he thought of Fan and her feeling 'Twas impossible to estimate cost. The moral of this ts apparent. And Ibe raider will see it, I guess: When jou've presents to send, send 'em early, And always by Southern Fxpress. CntrMHrs. OA., December, l7t. Tbe editor of the Bateeville (Ark.)PiVor says ot Memphis: "There ws found business fairly boomlnr ' and no one by looking at the activity and msn of bnslness would think that there bad evt-r been any trace of the fever there. The receipts or cotton np to date are larger uwo were ever kquwh for this season of the year. The receipts are so large that tt Is impossible to get transportation for it to the eastern markets. The streets are literally lined with bales of the fleecy staple. All the peoale ot the city are fully awakened on the subject of drainage and sewerage, to prevent another epidemic. At their request the governor has called an extra session of the legislature to levy a tax to carry out this noble purpose. While looking at the business activity ws were fully Impressed with the fact that Memphis is still destined to be a city of propoitions and Impor tance. It Is impossible to keep her down. Burn ber to the ground, and Phoc j!x like she will rise from ber own ashes and come forth In her own beauty and strength." THEATRICAL, Review of the Seanan In 31emibis-Ko t'mr Ihc Attraction Have lifts nlr to Wood and the People Have Kn leyed Them. The theatrical season, now in its fifth week, at Iieubrie's Theater, opened up on the sev enteenth of November, the opening attrac tion, beinif the Oliver Doud Uyroa combina tion in Across the Continent. A review of the attractions so far presented during the season mav not be uninteresting to our read ers. The Theater had been ic-painted and refitted by Mr. Leuorie, who succeeded in making it one ot the neate&L and most at tractive that any city can boast of. The By ron combination drew good houses duricg the week, and during which a change of at traction was presented in Hero, or the Lores of Mount Shasta, and 2'Ze.y of Monet The three hrst n:hts ot ine ueceeuing weeg, and at a matinee on Wednesday, llaverly's colored minstrels played to immense houses. The attraction was excellent, the olio per formance, the songs aud danre, character representations, and other specialties, tiircoa and comicalities being the best known l- the minetrel busings. It was dillicult to decide whether the white or the colored people were the more amused, at the very clever perforcrH ance. I be three remaining nights ot the week were taken up bv the Buffalo Bill combination, presentircr Kmghts of the k'lal"3, and in which Mr. William Cody, appeared as "Balfd'.o Bill," the hi rj of the drama, and was supported by several real Indians, who appeared in their proper costumes and gave representations ot their war and other dances. The combination drew fair houses during the engagement.. On the following week the sprightly and ever" popular Lotta was the attraction tor four nights. Sae appeared in Mtisetlv on Monday, kdCifale Tuesday, Little Ditedive Wednes day, and Zip, or I'oint Lynde Light, on Thursday, when the brilliant and successful engagement closed. Lotta drew large houses and added to her already well-won laurels. Her vivacity, energy, ability and efforts to please received well-merited recognition from the people of our city and surrounding country. On Friday tight, of the same week, the Sa ville English opera company presented Pitta fore, the first time of its appearance in our city rendered by a company ot proieaeionais. The cast was excellent, and the amuMng and ever popular opera was well rendered. Miss Brooks Bell, as "Josephine," and Miss Flora Barry, as "Buttercup," Fang themselves at once into the good graces ot Memphis theater-goers. The other roles were well given, especially that of "Sir Joseph Porter," which was filled by Mr. Ddll in n capital manner. Pinafore was repeated at the Saturday mati nee, and at night Trial by Jury and Pina fore were presented, which closed the en gagement of the troupe. Tho ensuing week brought us Mr. and Mrs. Florence in the Mighty Dollar. Mr. Florence bs "Hen. Bardwell Slot?," was most amusing, the character being one of the best now on the stage. Mrs. Florence, as "Mrs. General Gilflory," divided honors with Mr. Florence. The two characters are fine, both exagger ated, the one in political and the other in social life. The Florences played to good houses during the week. On Saturday the engagement closed, Mr. Florence appearing ia his great role "Bob Brierly," in-Tctt-ri- Leace Man. Last Monday night tragedy took the place of comedy at the Theater, the Bowers-Thompson combination appearing in the drama entitled Lady Jane (frey, which was repeated cn Tuesday and Wednesday be fore fair houses; Thursday Cowrf and Stage was presented, and Friday night the Hunchback, sn ever-popular play, was tbe attraction. At the matinee yesterday Court and Stage was repeated, and was enjoyed by large audience. Liast mgnc tbe Uowers- Thompson combination closed the engage ment, presenting The Jtalous Wife, the balcony 6cene from Romeo and Juliet,. and a farce known as Nan the Good for Nothing. From the foregoing brief review of tbe theatrical season so tar, it, can 03 seen that the attractions presented have been fair, and tbey have changed in character weekiy minstrelsy, opera, comedy and ragedy following each other in rapid succes sion.
