C. Hite, agent t A Colored Battle. Between the hours of five and six last evening, a ter rible "scrimmage took place at the lauding between three black women and a negro man. As near as we could learn the story, it runs " thuswise :" Sambo had deluded girl No. 1 to believe that he was an unmarried man, and prevailed an elopement on one side,- and marriage on the brain on the other. Sambo and girl No. 1 started for the levee. Sambo's wife got wind of the whole affair, and got one of her sinters to net as second in the case, and the two latter posted themselves at the landirg. They hud been waiting there for sometime when Smnbo and his j inamorata were seen coming down, the street Reaching near the wharfboat Michigan, Sambo was confronted by his itijured better half, who vowed all kinds ot veneeanre. Sumbo commenced to apologise, stating that girl No. 1 had enticed him off This only made matters worse and set the three women to belabor ing him soundly. A large crowd of specta- tors were80on assembled, and the women commenced pounding the dusky Lotha rio " muchly" toathe amusement of all present . For a time Sambo stood it, but among us, let' nations tee that th loved ones still live in our hearts ; let the world know that the South can never .forget the brave hearts who died , at her call. The best way for our people to do this if to lend every assistance to the grand tour nament which comes off on the 22d inst, the proceeds of which are to be given toward building monument to the Con federate dead. 'Those brave men fell for the Lost Cause, but their memory shall live green in the hearts of the people as long as summer returns with ber verdure to remind ns of our sunny clime. The man who has married a widow, knowing he now has all her love and confidence, cannot blame his wife for shedding affec tion's tears over the grave pf her first love; nor can the Government, knowing it now has the love and confidence of the Southern people, chide them for giving affection's tear to the Lost Cause. A German Drowns Himself. From an exchange we copy the following, in connection with the Memphis riots: "A German,' who has a wife, and family in Cincinnati, was in Memphis during the recent riots, and was so terrified by the ex citement that he became partly deranged. He came up on the Minneola, and fre quently gave evidences of. the terror the riots had inspired by starting up and ex claiming, 'There they come; they will kill me sure.'' A friend watched and guarded him until, on Saturday- night, the two went into a state-room, and after the German had laid down ' his friend stepped out, when the German at once locked the dqor on the inside. His friend came back and tried in vain to get in, and was walking in the . cabin laughing at the occurrence, when suddenly the German rushed from the room, passed out on the .guards, and before, he could be prevented, jumped overboard, and was drowned. ' This occurred just above Shawneetown." 1000 Barrels Of Alabama Llllie, he finally got his dander up, and drew himself up a la Heenan, and told the Manufactured by Ransom it Co., warranted equal to anything in this market for brick, and superior to every other lime for plastering and white coating, which we can supply in lots to suit purobasers at less rates man tJape lime.

This made the women redouble their efforts, when Sambo hoisted and planted his fist under the smelling organ of one 'bf them, and struck the others in rapid succession, until the three.of them measured their forms length on the earth. Having done this, Sambo started up town at full speed, followed by the en- rsged women screaming and yelling.

Mr. Carden hns labored very diligently du ring the season for the amusement of the patrons of the ' drama, and has given greater satisfaction than any other lead ing man we have ever had. j As an actor he has few equals; as a gentleman he ranks No. 1.

There is' so much resemblance between a drunken woman and a fallen angel that it sickens the heart to contemplate the change. The police, yesterday, arrested one of this kind a woman, named Ellen Mor rison. She was so much in liquor, nnd so noisy, that the officers were forced to lock her up.

There was on exhibition yester day afternoon, at Frank's saloon, on Jef ferson street, a large-sized snapping tur tle, which attracted considerable atten tion, especially that of a one-armed man, who played with her snapship by trying to poke a lighted cigar down her throat a joke the turtle did not at all relish. Se proprietor of the hause repeatedly d the one-armed man to desist, but be simply replied that he was not afraid. He, however, poked the cigar at the mouth of the turtle once too often, for she made a sudden snap at him, and took nearly an inch off his fore-Gnger, as smooth as though it had been cut by a sharp razor, including bone and all. It was a foolhardy trick, and the poor fellow paid dearly for his fun. OPESIXO OF THE DeI.MONICO ICE CrEAX Sai.ooK.

Iu this connection, we stule that the Dcs Arc, a boat that works for the interest of our city, will leave on tue same nay, ready to take all that she can curry, for the Crescent City. It is a well known fact that the mob line has been working acainst our interest. 1 hey have never done anything for Memphis. It is com posed of men who would not give one cent fur our. improvement Why, it is onjy a few days sgo that this mob line sent a man here from the'North to man age its affairs here, as though we did not have people here competent enough.

COTTON We are now in the second week in May, and still the Ions desired era of high prices for cotton is not reached. Unexpected large receipts, and a great decline in the price of gold, for a long time prevented any permanent advance, and now we have another and an altogether unexpected adverse influence (till further deferring the period ot high prices the spprehension of war in Germany. This threat ened eataetmphe 1 the occurrence of important commercial failures; and the oritical condition of certain joint stock companies have so de ranged tlvo money markets of Europe, that Dritich exporters have almost entirely sus pended operations, and tat Liverpool market lias, in consequence, to a great degree lost its firmness. The British spinners expecting lower prices in eonsequouoe of eonttnacd high re ceipts In this country have stood ont of th market, awaiting cotton to " touch bottom,' and are bare of stocks. Driven into the market every now and then by the absolute need of cotton to carry on with, sales are run up and priecs advance when they have obtained sufll cicnt fur present wants they retire, and the ad vsiice is Iot again. This accounts fur occasional Vacillations in the Liverpool market. ' When it is known iu England how rapidly receipts are declining here, one important check to a per manent advance will bereoibved j and if peace thould be preserved, another opposing influence will hare teased to txht. While all this is taking pliice. however, the season U) passing, and the dead time of the year is coming rapidly upon us. The following is a review, day by day, of lust week's market Jfc'tiOAV.
