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
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

Having done this, Sambo started up

A Word to CoNVAUcsrEscs. Espe
cial care should be given to thediet, take
light food and but little at a time. Great
care should be taken not to take any-'
thing indigestible into the stomach.
Many persons when recovering from
fevers have craving appetites, and not
ntifrequently, through the overattentions
of the nurse, mix together in the stomach
the most incongruous articled of food;
others, again, recovering from disease,
have no appetite at all, and need some
gentle toaio and stimulant to ns i s t the
intertiul organs of the body to perform
their regular functions, lo such we
say, procure Itohack'n Sttimach Bitters,

A DacurEN Wosuif. Of all the abject
things to look at, we think a drunken
woman is the most pitiful. 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.
" When lovely woman stoops to folly,"
There is no telling to what her weakness
will lead her.

Man Pats Dearly, for a Foolish
Whim. 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.

A morning paper stales that one of
the mob line of steam era will be here on
next Tuesday morning, with room enough
for three thousand bales of cotton. 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.
Let the merchants of Memphis remem
ber this, and act accordingly.
The annual report of the Chamber of
Commerce of the citv of Louisville

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
