Mr. E. Eddy and Miss Henrietta Irving have been the reigning stars at De Bar's Opera House, St Louis, during the past and preceding week. They have drawn very fair houses. "Rip Van Winkle" and the classical comedy of " Katherine and Petruchio" were a nounced for last Monday evening. Cecil Rush opened three evenings in the comedy of " Masks and Faces. Mrs. Jane Davenport Lander was drawing fine audiences at McVicker's theatre, Chicago. 1 ) ' Edwin Forrest played Metamorn to a large audience at the National Theatre, Cincinnati, on Thursday evening last He closed his engagement on Friday night with Hamlet .'. - - ' i. j I Madame Celeste was the great attrac tion at Pike's Opera House, Cincinnati, during last week.

Mr. Joseph Proctor is pitying a very successful engagement at Wood a ' The tre, Louisville. , Mr. L P. Barrett closed his engage ment at the Varieties Theatre, New Or leans, on Saturday, the 3d instant Avonia Jones made her debut in Lon don, Eng., after a long absence on Feb ruary 5th, at the New Surrey Theatre, in a new dramatization of East Lynne, by John Ozenford. The London Timet says : " Lady Isabella is played by Miss Avonia Jones, an actress who has not lately appeared in our midst, and who gives a powerful but unequal represents tion of the suffering heroine. At times pathetic, at others forced, the acting of Miss Avonia Jones is as far above medi ocrity as it is short of excellence. Her voice was monotonous In its expression, a fault we attribute to her having too much to do in the piece. The piece was thoroughly successful, Miss Avonia Jones being summoned at the end of every act Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams played at the Brooklyn Academy of, Music on March 6th and 6th. Edwin Booth's engagement at the Win ter Garden is one of the most brilliant that he or any other star has ever fulfilled. Laura Eeene is playing a fine engage ment at the Opera House, Pittsburg, Pa. A correspondent says : " She produced her new Irish drama, entitled Irish Wives, on February 2Hd, and on Feb ruary 2Cth produced ' Lost in Pittsburg, with local scenery, and the piece ar ranged and localized from ' Lost in London.'" Father Kemp's Old Folks ar on the wing again and appear during the cur rent week in Philadelphia, at tie Na tional Hall, Market street Mrs. Emma Nichols, the sweet ballad singer, re tains her position with the old ones, and Father Kemp continues to direct the movements of his large family. The Menken continues to "ride high horse" in England, notwithstanding b r repeated asseverations of an intention to pat in an early appearance in New York. Miss Bate man commenced an engage ment at the Boston theatre on March T;h. Geerge Hale has been doing well in Davenport, Iowa. Tom Thumb and party were playing to crowded audiences in Bath, lately, while Mr. and Mrs. Charles Matthews were playing in the same town with a first class tompany, to empty boxes. Setchel closed in San Francisco, at Maguire's, on January 27th, to a crowded house.

Yes terday, during the afternoon, we saw a ..ana trnnariire on the upper cross ing of Main street, at the intersection'of PtnUe that we shall not soon forget It wr-i ia well known that this crossing is ex j-.atari inirlv muddv. and that the beaten -' o . - ' t track across will only permit of one per nn ennper.intr across at a time. Yester day two very good looking and well dressed ladies started across from oppo site directions and met plump in the centre face to face. Both waited awhile o.na,.i;niv the nther to ttive way, but AV"' f - npithrr havinii any idea of so doing, No. 1 commenced by remarking, " Madam, I m the first to cross. Indeed, Madam." reD.ied No. 2, "yon werenoth ing of the kind, I thank you ; I started before you did." " You then mein to say," indignantly said No. 1, "that lam fibbingl" "I don't mean to say' any thing of the kind, you good-for-nothing thing, you," retorted No. -2, "and if you were not such a tall good-for-nothing gauky thing, I would scratch your eyes out for you, and if iny husband was enly here, he would slap your good - tor - notning . tare for VOU n Tir .- (hat rhintra wrA 11C OO W HIO a,uaae " - - coming to a crisis, for when woman will she will, and as they both were women and as they both willed, we were about to start away when, lo I No. 1 picked up noor No. 2. flung her aside knee-deep in the mud, and, to the great amusement of a lnrcre number of negro urchins and white bovswho roared, hugely pleased, she walked away with as much pride as any peacock we have ever seen. Poor No. 2 walked away, crying and vowing her husband should slap the " good-for-nothing thing soundly for insulting her in that way. ' See to it. A sick man should never wait until he ia nearly dead to send for the doctor, nor should any person hav ing destructible property delay until they see the danger, before insuring. Many a man has, by putting off from day to day before he would insure his property been made a Door outcast. There is no sensible man, with any business qual that will deluv insuring. But with those who do insure comes np the question : " which Company shall I trust mv risk with?" We say give it to one that is known to be a sound and reliable one, that should you be so unfortunate aa tn lnaa it. would Day Tour risk Dromotly and without trouble. Such a Company is the old and reliable Phoenix, of Hartford, and of which our popular townsman, Herman Field, is the resident agent here. The Company adjusted and paid losses during the past year amount ing to $410,513 31 promptly; but they could well do this, when it is known that their ,'ncome during the same time amounted to $800,000. Besides, this Company gives assnrance to the public that choice indemnity, of a wholesome and permanent character, is strongly guaranteed by Phoenix policies. It will be seen from this that the old Phoonix is equal to any insurance company in the world, and surpassed by none. It is then clearly the Company to insure with. For further particulars we would refer our friends to their gentlemanly' agent, at his office, No. 1 Madison street. Iulauer & Pritz, 255 1--JM Main street, lot of Fine are opening a spieuum La as.

An old and har dened case, known as Ellen Mucbany, was found yesterday in a state of beastly intoxication by policeman Uark. She was so much under the influence of liquor that she could not walk, and the officer was compelled to call in the as sistance of a dray and have the poor (alien creature taken to the stationhouae. What volumes does this act not speak? Woman, when in her proper sphere, the loveliest thing of earth the type of leaven that mankind might have an idea of celestial beauty; but, when fallen, she becomes a thing too bad to look at Cot NTS r sit Small Charge.

At a meeting of the Board of Underwriters of the eitv of Memnhia. held this, the 8 th day of March, 1866, the following resolution was adopted : Kaohtd, That on and after the 9th day of March, A. D. 1866, cotton in store wnu merchandise, and merchandize in stores where cotton is kept, shall be deemed uninsurable, and that risks on the same will not be taken by any com pany represented by this Board.

There was, as usual, a splendid audience at the New Memphis last night. Muddy streets will not pre vent people turning out to see such ar tists as the Florences, especially when they appear in such a beautiful drama as the Colleen Bawn, which piece, with Mr. and Mrs. Florence in the principal characters, supported by Mr. Carden, Mr. and Mrs. Hicks and Mr. and Mrs. Lanagan, was one of the most attractive we have seen during the season. Eath leen Mavourneen is advertised for to- nieht with Mr. Florence as " Terrenee O'More" and Mrs. Florence aa "Kath; leen O'Connor." Everybody should see Kathleen Mavourneen, for it is a good drama, with many beautiful scenes, and will be performed in the most artistic manner.

Editorial. We had the pleasure yes terday of a call from James E. Ballard, the talented and clever editor of the Holly Springs Reporter. By the way, the Reporter is decidedly one of our best weekly exchanges, and wields a wide influence in Upper Mississippi. Our merchants will consult their inter est by advertising in the Reporter, and as we understand Mr. Ballard will be in the city for a few days longer, this is the time for them to hand him their favors. Mr. Ballard is a genial gentleman, and the latch-string of our sanctum is always on the outside for him. The Speaeiko Last Evekiko. Messrs. Poston and Walker addressed a large number of their fellow-citisens last evening at Exchange Hall, giving an account of their stewardship while at Nashville. They were frequently and loudly applauded, and were renominated for their vacated seats unanimously. This was bnt just, that they may prove to the world at large that they were only actuated by pure motives, in withdraw ing from a rump Legislature, that would have plunged the State into the lowest ebb of political degredation. "Pride of the World," ard "Ex peess Trail." The above styles of the justly celebrated Duplex Eliptic Skirts received in large variety by Iglauer B Pritz, 255 Main street " ' t Pettt Thikviho. There is, we sup pose, a larger amount 01 petty tnieviog in Memphis, than probably any city of the same population in the country. We dare say that the Recorder's docket is never without two or more arrests daily on this charge. What is stranger is that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred the offending party is a negro. This proves tha evil of thrusting liberty on any race, nntil they are educated for the purpose. The transition from one extreme to an- ntlW. i never calculated to have the) good effect which onr modern reformers would have na believe. ErrECt or Gettiro Druks. A very genteel looking man, named James Brown, was arrested yesterdsy, for steal ing a bolt of domestic from a dry goods store on Main street The moment he was arrested he sobered np, and said he eloia the domestic nnder a freak of li quor, which may be the case, as he does not took like a thief; but this proves the .. J ,1 evil consequence of indulging in too much whiskey. PersoxaL. Tom.

They sell cheap, and keep nothing but the best of articles. The Weather seems to be taking a change for the better. The sun to-day is shining forth in all his glory, " giving to kens of a goodly season," with dir prom ises that he will soon drive our tor- menter, mud, from the streets. ; i , Stealixo Cottoh. A man named J. EL Jerome was yesterday arrested for stealing cotton, and lodged in jail. He will in all probability have an examina tion to-day. Recorder's Docket. There were twenty-one cases before the Recorder this morning, on various charges. The best of Wines and Liquors, cheap, at Wm. Vesey" s, 300 Bank avenue. , The Port of Memphis. The weather overhead this morning was very beautiful, but exceedingly muddy tinder feet. The landing is one sea of mnd and slash. Business at the wharf was quite brisk during the morning. The river is still rising nearly u i'ot every twenty-four hours. . The following is the port list fur the past twenty-four hours : Arrivals. Lilly Martin, Vicksburg Kilgonr, St Louis. .

For CixciyRATi. The swift and com modions steamer Darling will tJVpiirt for Cairo, Louisville and Cincinnati to-day at 6 o'clock p.m. There is no bout that plys between here and the above points that can surpass the Darling in anything appertaining' to the comfort and safety of travelers, and those who ship freight by her may rely upon it being carried through as it should be, fer there is tio more careful and attentive officer to be found than Capt. Geo. H. Alcoke. The office is in oharge of Willie Hindi, as sisted by Billy Cotter two of the most courteous and oblinging clerks ou the river to travel with. .' For Cairo ard St. Louis. Th" City of Alton, one among the finest and the fastest boat on the river, is the rrgulur packet for St Louis to-day, leaving at 5 p m. On the roof will be fouud the accomplished gentleman and steaiubont man of world-wide reputation for his effi ciency in the business, Captain Flera Calvert The well-known and popular Pete Sheckley has charge of the office, and will, we know, pay every attention to those who travel on the Alton. For White River ard Moon Lake. The Lady, one of those tidy little packets that one always feels at home on, leaves to-morrow evening at 5 o'clock for White river, running up as far as Moon Lake. She ia commanded by the gallant Captain Bonghncr, an experienced and skillful officer, with R. Bougbner a gen tleman spoken highly of by all who have ever traveled with him for bis obliging disposition and attention lo the comfort of his patrons in the office. The Lady is the only reliable boat we know of in the abeve trade, and, not like many oth ers, she will carry freight and passengers throogh safe. Miscellaneous. The Southerner and Morning Star both backed out with good trips, the former for St Louis, the latter for Louisville. It was rumored there was to be a race between them, but we know to the con trary. The Southerner was not prepared, and had too many landings to make for snch a test The Shamrock and Sam Gaty, both snnk some time ago, have been raised and repaired The City of Cairo is loading at St Louis for New Orleans, and starts from there this evening. The steamer Diamond was sunk in the Tombigbee river last week by fire. Eight hundred and twenty bales of cot ton and the steamer were entirely de stroyed The clerk of the steamer Virginia has not yet thrashed the river editor of the Acalmnckif or calling him a jackass. We suppose this is accounted for because jacks always neigh at an encounter. Steam so at Prixttko. We respectfully ask onr steamboat friends to call and ex amine the specimens of fine steamboat printing daily executed at the Ptrlic Ledoer office. Our prices will be found to compare favorably with those of Cin cinnati or St Louis, and to be greatly below those asked by other city offices.
