It is a comedy that is most attractive, and is full of quaint wit, hu mor and sentiment. It will be repeated to morrow evening.

Cruelty to Animals, Editors AppeaI I have witnessed many scenes on the streets of this city, tbe past few weeks, which make my heart ache. I refer to tbe cruel and inhuman treatment to dumb animals. I have, on one or two occasions, had dray drivers to remove part of their heavy loads and relieve in a great measure the suffering ot tbe poor brutes. I am compelled to close my eyes against such sights as a por little mule striving with might and main to pull his load of four bales of cotton, the driver continually pulling and jerking the reins. I saw at noon to-day a dray driver going throogh his usual custom of torture; he had no load upon his dray, and tbe poor mule's mouth was bleeding, and, of course, it was suftdring great pain. - I thought if I only had authority, I would have the driver lu jail in fifteen minutes. Now, what I desire to call attention to is this: 1 want to take some steps immediate steps, too in organizing a "Bergh society" in this city. It is badly needed; and if I can get tbe co-operation of a few of our influential citizens, I will take the initia tory steps in organizing such a society. I called to see the chief of police to-day on the subject, and be assures me that a society for this purpose will have his hearty support. I also read the law relating to cruelty and in human treatment to animals, and find that it is a misdemeanor, and punishable by heavy fine or imprisonment, or both, and all that is necessary is to carry this law into effect. TLe police lorce is small and Bpead over a large territory, and, when a policeman is needed, be cannot be tound. If this article should catch the eyo of some well-disposed person who de sires to take some active part in the forma tion of such a society, I should be pleased to meet with bim or them, that early action may b had to give relief to the poor dumb animals. w. s. p.

No Street Diaplay by Soeietlen Tea nessee Club Hall JHaaq nerade Balla-jrirecaea'a AAop. Mardi Graa came and is gone, and the penitential season of Lent has come to re main forty days. There was no public celebration ih our city yesterday owing to the afflictions ot the past year. Those who were wont to get up the gorgeous pageants that rivaled those exhibited at Mobile cr New Orleans, believed it not in good taste to engage in mystic revelry so soon after the close of the yellow-fever epidemic of last sum mer and fall. The Memphi remained silent, and the Uiks have disbanded. A few indivi duals determined to get up a masquerade ball at the Exposition building on Mardi Gras night, and tbe Tennessee club gave an ele gant full dress ball at the Theater. But yet many thousands ot young people from the country came to the city on excursion trains, in order to enjoy a holiday, and par ticipate in whatever tun or frolic might be presented. Throughout tho whole day yes terday, and up to a late hour last evening, the Main street sidewalks were crowded to excess by people going in every direction, t'bey walked up on one side of the street, then down tbe other, watching and laugh ing at the maskers, of whom quite a goodly number appeared on the streets. No general masquerading, however, was indulged in. It WbS principally confined to yountr boys and Kiris, both white and colored. Occasionally you saw a big burley man dressed op in cos tume, but he looked oat of place, and proba bly felt so. Once in a while a young woman in lancy costume that displayed a large amount of flesh-colored stockings could be seeu wending ber way through the crowds. The boy with tbe tin horn was around every where; bt duplicated himself over and over again, and became tbe most disagreeable and violent agitator and disturber of the public peace iuu horrid sound ot the tin horn blew in your ears on every corner, lheboyand girl maskers were also everywhere; about as ereat a nuisance as the tin horn enfant terri ble. Country youths and maidens hurried along the street as if walking tor a belt; they were Arcadians enjoying the eights ot the city. Cleon and Phyllis, or Paul and Vir ginia, walk hand in hand together bke cur first parents in the Garden of Eden, and, no matter whom they ran against, no one could separate them. The young man looked hap py and sheepish and the country maid looked fresh and joyous. Tbey cared naught for the world; they bad a little world all to them selves, and it spread only from heart to heart. A clown in motley and on horseback, with a fool's cap on his head, passed along tbe streets. He was amusing himself as well aa others by his antics. He had never read wbat Puek said, "What fools we mortals be." Two masked men-at-arms wandered around as in search of something. Our re porter saw them enter a dno kins-saloon. and he firmly believes they found what they were in search ot ; at least, he hope so. The young women who appeared enmasque carried riding-whips tor the purpose ot check ing any rude familiarity on the part of men. but which familiarity was invited by the style ot dress, or rather undress, which the young women wore. On the corner of Main and Jefferson a crowd of colored gamins surrounded two white girls who were masquerading, but who were drunk. Tbey staggered along in their tauury bnery, and occasionally turned around to give expression to an oath or a vulgar phrase, when the crowd ot urchins crowded them too closely. Our reporter noticed that a large share cf the street masquerading was done by girls aged from thirteen to htteen years V bile pushing through crowds they had to luten to many offensive expressions from men, that should never have reached their ears. Their parents certainly are to blame in permitting them to go masquerading, and some day they may regret it. As the poet BHng long ago: Vice Is a monster of sucb frightful mien. That to be bated, needs but lo be seen; But seen too oft, familiar to the face. We first endure, then pity, then embrace. During the day Court square was visited by thousands who crowded around the beautilul fountain and gazed upward at fair Hebe, the cup bearer ot the gods, as she poured the nectar into the antique vase. The sparkling waters pitched far upward and failing d.wn in drops through the bright rays of the" sun resembled sparkling diamonds, lhe weath er was lovely, summer-like and balmy, and everybody seemed to be enjoying it prodig iously. The stores along Front and other heavy business streets were not crowded, but tit, le business, except in a retail way, being carried on and that business was ia notions. masks, masquerading suits, cakes, fruits. candies, etc. Ibe biuttj ware crowded also, and our country cousins admired tbe mighty river as it rolled onward to the guir. lhev gazed at the Arkansas shore far away and became interested in the steamboats lying at the landing. It was a day of pleasure to them, but to us who reside in the city it was monotonous and dull in the extreme. AT NIGHT. By sundown the streets were partially de serted; people returned to their homts, hotels or buartfinghouses, in search of sup per, and to make preparation for the bails. After dark, Main street was again crowded; sky lockets, Roman candies, red and green lights, were fired from tbe corners ot Gayos i and Main, Monroe and Main, and North Court and Main. These pyrotechnic dieplajs were of private enterprise and were kept up, at intervals, for several hours for the amuse ment of the people who visited our city. It was estimated that between six and tec thousand visitors were here yesterday. This ii a reasonable estimate. Six thousand strangers will spend, on an average, at least five dollars each, which would make thirty thousand dollars scattered broadcast through out the city, thereby assisting working people, retail dealers, hotel-keepers and others; to say nothing of the amount of money expended by our citizens for suits and dresses for the Tennessee club ball, and for costumes for the masquerade ball given at the Exposition Building. TENNESSEE CLUB BALL. At ten o'clock last night Leubrie's Theater was filled with the elite of the city. The parquette had been floored and a white car pet put down for tbe dancers. The dress circle and the family circle were crowded with ladies and gentlemen who were specta tors of the charming scene. The ladies were elegantly attired in full dress, and the gen tlemen were in their best society clothes. The back half of tbe stage was arranged as a supper-room, and refreshments, consisting of all the delicacies of the season, were spread upon the tables. When the dance began, a wallz, the Theater tcoked like fairy land. The chivalry and the beauty of Memphis were present to trip the light fantastic toe to the ravishing strains of music. Tbe dancing card containing the programme was tastefully gotten up. The dances were printed in gold on red satin cloth, and at the top was stomped the monogram of the Tennessee club. The order of dancing was as follows: WALTZ., Will You? QUADRILLE Flirt. L NCKBS What, never? WALTZ Kiss. LANCKR3 J'alme le MUluire. WALTZ Tne Club. QUADKILLE Golden Slippers. OALOP Electilc. QUADRILLE In the Morning. WALTZ Dream. LAtClR3 Gently. UALOP Sleep WelL The dancing was kept up until a late hour, when the revelers returned home to sleep and dream of the Tennessee club Mardi-Gras ball. The gentlemen of the club acquitted themselves with credit and added one more laurel to their crown of success. MJiNNKRCHOR HALL. A pleasant masquerade ball was given at the abave hall, corner of Second and Jeffet son streets. The hall was crowded with maskers, and enjoyment prevailed. Tbe dancing was kept up until aa early hour this morning. firemen's hop. Tbe boys of the De soto fire company. No. 3, gave a social hop to invited guests last night at their hall on De soto street. It was largely attended and a pleas urable affair. Tbe gallant firemen did the honors in a handsome manner and enter tained their guests right royally. EXPOSITION BUILDING. The great democratic masquerade ball came off at the above building last night. At least two thousand persons were pres ent, either as dancers or lookers-on. The galleries were crowded with citizens who witnessed the brilliant scene that was ever changing beneath them. Hundreds of mask ers participated in the dancing. Every con ceivable kind of costume could be seen, sev eral of them being rich, elegant and costly. Many ot tbe fancy suits cost from sixty to one hundred dollars. There was a generous display of the female form divine arrayed with exquisite taste. It was the ball ot the season, and was attended by all classes of persons from the top of society down to the level where "liberty, equality aud fraternity" is the motto. You could dance, you could walk around, you could get a drink, you could smoke; you needed no introduction; in fact, yon were a pertectly free citizen, pro vided you behaved yourself and committed no breach of the peace. The revelry grew apace as midnight came and passed away, and it was nearly dawn before the revelers grew weary and retired to rtst. Thus ended Mardi-Gras of 1SS0. Blnles. Hales.

LAUiEi.DALE COUNT! Haadamuq Csie la tbe Dnlted Htates Court lo Cvmnel lle Coanty Conrt f Imndcrdale Coanty To Collect a Jsdgaeat Tax for Ball road Bonds 51 e In rate In Con tempt of federal Conrt. Yesterday the United bliutes circuit court granted a rule to 6uow causa why tbey shall not be punished lor contempt against the justices of the county court of Lauderdale county, for not collecting a tax on a fcrty thousand dollar judgment fcr railroad bonds. The county trustee was brought down in a similar proceeding, but got out of tbe diffi culty by showing that Le bad not and couid not give tbe bond of eighty thousand dollars required before be can by law collect tbe taxes levied under tbe mandamus writ. The creditors then raid a an alb lavit that the county conrt had failed to remove the trustee and appoint another, and failed to make re turn to the writ and other delinquencies, and obtained a rule on the ja- iic5- io w cause why tbey shall not go lu j .t Toe bonds on which the county baa br er: b".d liable were those decided to be void by Judge Baxter and good by Judge Eaimone, both decisions being now in the supreme court. The judgments now being enforced were ob tained by default, it is said, by some unfair practices on the part of tbe agents of tbe county in neglecting to make the defense. Judge Hammond refused to set aside the judgments on a bill filed by tbe county, on the ground of its negligence in not making defense in tbe first instance. The county seeks to defeat the collection in evt ry way possible, and, it is claimed by the creditors, is obstructing the process of collection by conspiracy with tbe tax-collector. It will be interesting to watch the coo the t, and see how other communities will come out of tho troubles from which Memphis seems at least temporarily relieved. Abolish the county, establish a taxing-district, and be at rest. Hmokfl tVrlght'w Orange Onrhans. K. 1,. fJOCIUSAJM & CO. The Firm From Which to Bay Limber, Sash. Doors.
