The Atlantic and Mississippi Steamship Company's wharf-boat was or dered to be removed by the Brtbrd last evening, in consequence of that stupen dous monopoly, known as the "mob line," having taken upon itself privileges not arrantcd by tho ordinance. The fol lowing are the-resolutions on the point hich were adopted : ' Resolved. That inasmuch as the wharf- boat of the Atlantio and Mississippi Steamship Company is being used as a public warehouse for the storage and forwarding of merchandise, and for the transaction ot a general commission dus iness, in direct violation of the rules and restrictions of this Board, under which said wharf-boat was permitted a place at the landine: the bar! Master he, and he is hereby, directed to have said wharf- boat removed ironi tne cuy jnnuing within ten davs from this date. Reoiced furthrr, 1 hat the privilege heretofore granted the Atlantic and Mis sissippi Steamship Company to keep a whart-boat at the Mempnis landing De, and the same is hereby, revoked. Thig wa brought about by the agent of the company violating the first and sec oad sections of the ordinance, which say: "They shall be ttricthj prohibited from doing a forwarding business. They shall not be allowed to do a commission business." On the face of which the agent of the mob line publishes a circn lar in which he states, " We will receive orders and attend to the purchase of produce and plantation supplies, and forward the same to destination, at short notice, on commission." The agents of the line have also a card reading " .T. W. Jennines & L.O., general steamDoai agents, A. 4 M. S. S. Co.'s wharf-boat, Memphis, Tenn. Agents for the pur chase of produce and plantation supplies. Forwarding and storage on the wharf boat" This, of course, is a direct viola tion of the ordiaance, and an imposition oa our merchants. But what conld be expected from a grand monopoly, who had to import a man to Memphis to agend their business here, who have on every occasion used every means to withdraw money from our citizens, but never ipending a cent here in return. Ibis mob line has obtained, and deservedly so, the contempt of every city where they touch at, by their close, mean, and un businesslike conduct They should re ceive the patronage of no Southern house, for we are told that a short time ago though they are running their steamers between St Louis and New Or leans they insured their boats in a Uorthern insurance coapiny, far from their place of business, and the people of St Louis, New Orleans and Memphis ihould remember this, and patronize them ia the same way. Protracted Meetiko at thi First Baptist Cbcrch. We learn that the ef fort being made by the pastor and mem bers of this church, for the diffusion of a ieher decree of vital piety in their con- gregatioa and in the community, is not without success. The earnest and forci ble presentations of the gospel by Rev. Mr. Graves, are not without effect on the congregations that have waited on his ministry. Indications of a lively inter est in the objects of the meeting are being manifested by both the members of the church and the congregation, and ia sincerely hoped that much good may result from the series of meetings, which, we understand, will continue so long aa here is a prospect of doing good by them.1 .The indifforence manifested by our citizens in religions matters, is fre quently the subject of remark among non-professors as well as church members. Intense Interest in this great subject i being manifested in many sections of our country, North and South. The papers religious and secular, constantly chroni cle glorious revival scenes, while, per haps, never in the history of our place. did even Christians manifest so little con cern for the salvation of men.- Our peo ple never had more leisure from the cares of business than they now have to devote to this great subject But, alas I thu leisure seems almost wholly devoted to pleasure and places of amusement, an the world and the church seem equally intent on these pursuits. We are re quested to state that about the space of one hour, morning and evening, say from 10 to 11 a.m., and from . 8 to 9 p.m is occupied by these services. The pub lic are earnestly invited to engage i them, and especially ' to be prompt i their attendance on the evening service at the hour of 8 o'clock, as it is desirable to close them at 9, so as to contribute aa much as may be to the festival for the benefit of the Central Church. . Uosocitoes. Ibese little pests are beginning to buz around the beds at night in a manner which, though quite musical, Is anything but pleasant We are a great admirer bf music, but there are exceptions in all cases, and the warbling of these " little birds" is what we beg leave to have nothing to do with. We admire concerts;' love songs, but oh save us from the calliope first and mut keelert afterwards. We can hardly say which is the greatest hntRanre. By the way, we see that a resolution, having for Us object the stopping of this Grecian musical instrument from discoursing ita grating sounds, was tabled. Wi trust that those who voted in that way will have a good dinner over it Speaking of thia reminds us that the City Council might as well pass an ordinance expelling mosquitoes, as we cannot aee for what possible use they were invented and why they were ever introduced among ns. We vote to kick the man out of town who first brought them here. The Strawberry Festival, al the Taber nacle, on Court street, was unquestion ably the affair of the season. The throng of "fair women and brave men " gatb ered there last night was a credit to Memphis. It is a popular organization with a very popular minister, and jhe community is evidently intent on erect ing for them a splendid church edifice. Among the other features of the festival we noticed a poll, where votes were taken for a splendid silver set, to be presented to the minister who received the highest number of votes. Mr. Rogers, of the Episcopal Church; Mr. Witherspoon, of the Presbyterian Church, and Dr. Ford of the Central Church, were the highest candidates. There was also some voting going on for a beautiful card-case for the young lady who received the highest number of votes. To-night, we under stand, the Comet, which showed but half its face last night, will appear in full. It will cause a sensation. A Word to Convalescents. Espe cial rare should be given to the diet take light food and but little at a time. Great eare should be taken not to take any thing indigestable into the stomach. Many persons when recovering from fevers have craving appetites, and not unfrequently, through the over attentions of the nurse, mix together in the stomach the most incongruous article of food others, again, recovering from disease, have no appetite at all, and need some gentle tonic and stimulant to assist the internal organs of the body to perform their regular lunctions. Jo such we say, procure Iioback't Stomach Hitlers, commence with a small quantity in sugar and water, and as the strength returns, increase the dose, and continue them until all symptoms of debility have dis appeared. mlO-lw Coxplixe.vtart. The merchants and many friends of Maj. Gen. Morgan L. Smith, late commander of the post of Memphis, and now the General Southern agent of the Little Miami and Columbus and Xenia Railroads,, tendered him a complimentary dinner at the Gayoso House, during his late visit to our city, on his return from Texas, but the Gen eral's well known modesty prevented him from accepting this act of kindness ; yet, during hia brief sojourn here, he has re ceived all that attention which a true soldier and high-toned gentleman could receive from our prominent citizens. lie left last evening on the gallnnt City of Cairo, for Cairo, and we give him over toJewett Wilcox, of the St. Charles Hotel. ' Theatre. On aocoent of the many festivals held in the city last evening, the attendance at the theatre was not as large as could have been expected; how ever, the house was a very appreciative one, and the performance not only gave much satisfaction, but passed off to the infinite delight of every one present This evening we are to have a new and beautiful drama entitled 7Yii Hearts on the Heather, in which the whole strength of the company will appear, sustaining the charming Miss Charlotte Thompson in the leading character. We think there ill be a crowded house this evening, and the play will surely be put on the Mage n a capital manner. Tocrkavext. A called meeting of the Committee of Arrangements of the Mem phis Tournaments is called, to meet at A. Vaccaro at Co.'s, to morrow morning, at 10 o'clock. It ia hoped there will be a full attendance. Looe Oct, Haclmex! The Board of Aldermen, lait evening, passed a resolu tion instructing the police to rigidly en force the hack ordinance, which ia as follows, to-wit: Every public hackney roach shall have printed cO?y of the rates of compensation enumerated (as by Sec. 10 of the Hack Ordinance,) in some conspicuoas place in the inside thereof. - Also, that all hacks have upon them numbers of license, painted upou tin, in addition to the same beingpainted npon their lamps, as provided by ordinance. A Bold Attempt at Robbert. Yes terday afternoon, about three o'clock, the room of Mr. J. M. Jeffords, on the corner of Main and Washington, was broken into by a party of thieves, and hia two trunks broken open. Mr. J. came along, and finding the door closed, knocked and was answered by a male voice, when be said that unless they let him in he would call the police. The door was then opened, and as he entered one of the thieves encountered him with one of his own pistols. He, however, grasped him and secured the weapon, lie found his coats and shirts in a " de moralized" condition. Here Mr. Jef- fards made an attempt to arrest the thieves, but in the fight they managed to get away, not, however, until lie luid fired several shots after them. In the scuffle he called for assistance, but no one came, and thereby gave the scoundrels a chance to escape. Save Your Monet.
