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

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.
