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

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

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.

Theatrical. 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

tee that nothing will be left undone to

to call and examine Messrs Ulumentbal

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.

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

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

evil consequence
of indulging in too
much whiskey.

Boats leaving To-Day.
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.
The Southerner and Morning Star both

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.
Bring your orders dirtetlt to as, and
save the commission charged by parti et
wha take in work they are not prepared
to execute. t
