In the full of InTJ I was seized with severe nam in the lower bowel, for which I consulted Dr. J. D. White, of tills city. After a careful examin ation of my case, he pronounced the disease Rkctal abscess, and urged me to have it treated without delay, saying it would terminate in Fis tula. Failing to take this timely advice, after a lew lavs my symptoms oecame violent, aiienoea with high fever and delirium. My family physician was ca ld. and owing to the gravity ot my conai tion demanded a consultation. For many weeks I remained quite ill, and at last, by the grace of God, the acknowledged skill of my physicians and attentive nursine. I " nulled through." In the meantime, justis Dr. white predicted, the abscess burst, ana torinca a oeep ana paiuiui risima, which gradually grew worse until it undermined and destroyed a great deal of the surrounding tis sue, anil several pnysicians wno exanuneo. it saia it was one of the most extensive they hail seen.

Jones, alias Jim Titus, col ored, shot at another negro, Monroe Alex ander, several times with a pistol, wounding him slightly. The row was about a woman, and was caused by whisky and jealousy. Jones was captured while drunk in his house, and the police had a rough-and-tumble time of it steering him to the station house, where he rested last night, to await an audience with the recorder this morning. Before Esquire Elliott yesterday the case of the State is. Bartolmas Pierini was heard on a warrant charging the defendant with the murder of a negro, James Goodman, at Charles Chechi's saloon, on the corner of I'niou and lesoto streets, on las Thuilay afUrnoon. The row was about fifty cents, which the negro owed for drinks. The bar keeper and he got iato a fight about the mat ter, during which Pierini seized a pistol and shot him through the head, killing him almost instantly. Esquire Elliott, after hear iug the testimony, fixed the bail of defend ant at S10(H), which was given, and he was released. Mr. Ottcnheinier, of 304 Main street, called at this otlice yesterday with a great natural curiosity. It is a two-legged cat, strong and active, aud able to walk ami jump, though not much force ai a runner. It has no appearance of hind legs uo stumps or withered joints, nor any bones, after the ribs, leading from the back toward the lower part of the bodv. It is a natural balancer, and throws its body forward, so as- to get a bal ance on its two legs, then moves along after the style of a coon's pacing gait. The cat was raised by Mr. A. N. Steifel,of New Mad rid, Missouri, and is about seven months old. It is a free show, and those who want to see it have only to call at Mr. Ottenheimer's. At the criminal court yesterday a white youth, James Webb, aged sixteen years, was put on trial on an indictment charging him with murder in the first degree, he having shot and killed with a pi: tol a negro named James Moore, on the 20th of November last, at the grocery and saloon of Mrs. Margaret Doyle, No. 83 Main street. The negro Moore was drunk, and had' abused Mrs. Doyle and the youth vt ebb, who was her step-son and who was acting aa her clerk. He threatened to kill them, and forcing in the door ad vanced on the youth, who seized a pistol and shot him through the head. The jury after hearing the testimony returned the following verdict: "We, the jury, find the defendant not guilty as charged in the indictment." At Ham's hall last night, the colored Republicans of the tenth congressional dis trict held a meeting. The following resolu tions were unanimously adopted : AY hereas, we have a man in our midst who for his in tegrity cannot be questioned, and that for his adherence to the principles of the Repub lican party cannot be said to be otherwise than that he has always, and upon all occa sions deported himself in such a way, and in such a manner as to receive the approbation of his party, and of the best citizens of the community in which he lives; therefore, re solved, that Mr. xiobert K. Church is the man, and that we as voters and true and tried Republicans, claim for him, that we re commend aud indorse him for the position of postmaster for the city 01 Memphis, and that we further implore his appointment at the hands of the President. A. Froman, Sr., president; L. B. Irent, secretary. TheNashville .Banner savs : "The Bern hardt took Nashville by storm Thursday nicht. She went from there to Memphis, and lb in Louisville, this week. lie ticket speculators at Nashville got left. Some of them lost as much as ?300, it is estimated. Seats which cost twenty dollars at auction were sold finally as low as two dollars." And so it was in Memphis, where the specn lators made desperate efforts to unload at greatly reduced prices three-dollar tickets being" offered at fifty cents. Many of the speculators lost considerably,. nor will they be engaged in such business again. Of course, everybody laughs at them. Several of the speculators who held matinee tickets visited the houses of ill-fame, and offered front seats at from five to ten dollars, after they found that society people would not make purchases. "To such base uses we may return, Horatio." In the chancery suits ts. E. H. Martin, at the instance of numerous creditors, which suits have occupied the attention of the crim inal court for a week past, Chancellor McDow ell yesterday announced his ruling, in sub stance as follows: "The assignment made by A. A. Martin May 3, 1879, was fraudulent. The transfer made by A. A. Martin June 1, 184, was without consideration ; that the amount of some $8000, drawn out and paid to Mrs. Martin on the day previous to the fail ure on an alleged indebtedness, was wrong fully paid; that no such debt existed. The assignment made to secure Mr. Martin an al leged indebtedness of $18,000, was fraudulent and void. The Wellborn heirs not being parties to the fraud are not affected, and will recover their claim of some $13,000. Martin made large purchases just previous to the assignment, knowing the firm was insolvent Mrs. Martin knew of and participated in the fraud. A decree will be prepared accord ingly." PERSONALS. W.

The Florence Nightingale of the Xursery. The following is an extraci from a letter written to the tlerman Reformed Mezsenyer, at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. A BEX EE ACTRESS. Just o)H?n the door for her, and Mrs.Winslow will prove the Aruerican.I'loreiiee Nightingale of the nursery. Of thiswe are so sure that we will teach our "Stisy" to say, "A blessing on Mrs. Winslow" for helping her to survive and escape the griping, collieking and teeth ing seige. Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup relieves the child from pain aud cures dysen tery and diarrhea. It softens the gums, re duces inflammation, cures wind colic and carries the infant safely through the teething period. It performs precisely what it pro lesses to perform, every part "of it nothing less. S'e have never seen Mrs. WinsloWj know her only through the preparation ol lier "SiKjthing Syrup for children teething." If we had the power we would make her, as she is, a physical savior to the infant race. Bold by aU tlruggists; 2q cents a bottle. AMUSEMENTS. SkatlBjc Rinh.

The Central Methodist church, which is now, we believe, making its first appearance before the public for a benefit, will give a sacred concert to-night at Hollenberg's hall. A number of the ablest amateur vocalists will take part, and Mr. K. Wayne Wilson, an accomplished pianist, will participate in the instrumental portion of the splendid pro gramme. Father Ryan's Lecture. Father Ryan, whose poems and lectures have given him a national reputation, will deliver a lecture for the benefit of St, Peter's orphan asylum next Friday night, at St. Peter's church. Many efforts have been made to have this eminent gentleman deliver a lecture here, but something has heretofore jirev.nted. Now that he is to come in the interest of one ef our noblest charities, he will undoubtedly attract one of the largest audi ences ever seen in the city. I.cnbrie'a Theater. Last night the Theater was crowded, down stairs and up, on the occasion of Joseph K. Emmet s appearance in rruz tn Jretond, a melodrama of a. curious character, because all kinds of business, from the song and dance of the variety stage to the heroic of the legitimate boards, is swung into it in a lavish and somewhat reckless manner. It was not difficult to discover that the play was arranged with a view to introduce the specialties of Mr. Emmet, who sings during the evening a large number 01 songs, sev eral of which are accompanied with dances. Mr. Emmet does not act or sing as well as he did several years since, but he yet retains many good points that are well presented, lhe supporting company is not strong, indeed it is rat h.r weak, but the play moves along to the close aqid the varied scenes pleasantly. The audience was amused at the grotesque German and Irish business, not true to nature iu any respect, but rather of the burlesque order, which created no lit tle laughter aud applause. In a literary point the play amounts to hut little, outside of ;he specialties of Mr. Euimyl above staled. Fritz in Ireland will be repeated to-night and for the last time to-morrow, which will close the engagement. ro mattnee will he given to-morrow. LAW REPORTS. Chancery Conrt JlrUoaelf, J lift sc.
