A communicant of on branch of the Catholic Church, distin guished for his lofty Christian bearing and spotleps integrity through the scenes of a long and eventful life, lately ex pressed the following sentiment in a let ter written from his prison to his wife " Although I can hear the voice of my people no longer, I am comforted by the hope that thei r prayers are offered for my welfare." lie has lately been indicted for treason, and the day of his trial is at hand. You cannot doubt, beloved, that I am speaking of Mr. Davis, and my ob ject is only to ask for him your special and uiceasing prayers. On this holy festival, he will partake of the Holy Com' munion with you. Who knows but that you may be beard of God; that your sup plications may soften the hearts of his judges, and place the fear of the Great Judge before their eyes; I, therefore, ex hort you, by the mercies of Jesus Christ, to offer the following prayer every night when you go to bed, and every morning as soon as you rse : U Uod, whose mercies are everlasting, and whose pow- eris iufinite. look down with pity and , ' 1 compassion upon thy servant, whom thou hast laid in a place of darkness and the deep. Give to his judges ten' derness and compassion, and to him meek and forgiving spirit toward all those who have confined him. Raise up friends to pity and relieve him. Oive him always a sorrowful sense of his sins and of thy fatherly love and correction. Give to his judges tenderness and com' passion, and to him a meek and forgiv ing spirit toward all those who have con fined him. Raise np friends to pity and relieve him. Give him the continual comfort of Ihy Iloly Spirit, and so sanc tify his afflictions that they may work for him an eternal weight of glory, thro' the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord." This prayer, beloved, you should offer with a meek and forgiving spirit, so far as in yon lielh, toward all those who may have injured you; for this is the first condition of an " effectual prayer.' Your affectionate Pattor in Christ, James Webr Roue as The Memphis Cldb Benefit. By reference to the following communica tion it will be seen that the Memphis Club will give a performance for the benefit of the late Confederate maimed soldiers, in order to procure them artifi cial limbs. Nothing .could be more praiseworthy; and when it is known the trouble people are put to in appearing before the public, so much more worthy will the action of the club seem. The ladies and gentlemen composing the club are of acknowledged talent, and have eiven some performances in their own hall that equal those of many pro fessional representatives. We feel as sured the house will be crowded to its utmost capacity. Manager 1 nompso deserves much credit for tendering the theatre free on this occasion, and our people will remember this with pleasure when the new scnson opens again. Mriirms, MaylO.lfBrt. W. C. Tbompsos. Esq.. Manager New Memphis Theatre : Sir At the request of t,he Ladies' Benevolent Society of this city, we would respectfully ask the use of yor.r theatre fr our performance next lacsdRT evening, the Tii inst confidont of roar sympathy with others woes, and that the game generous spirit that has ever evoked a corresponding sentiment from our community, will not fail on this occasion to display its liber ality. lours, respectfully U. oeessel, Jr., Chairman.

In answer I would say that I most cheerfully , accord to the .Ladies' Benevolent Society . the use or the theatre for that night. Tor the purpose of giving said benefit, liespeotfully, . v W. C. Tbompso, Manager. Habfeb OS IBB , Riots. JIarptr' Weekly, for May 26th, bas two "picters " representing the late Memphis riots, . i , i. tuaen, we suppose, , vj our own cor respondent in the field," but who, re ally, never was in Memphis. One of the ," picters" represents the negroes flying from the persecutor, wading through the river or bayou for safety. Our people well know that no scene of the late oc currences did take place near the Mis sissippij and that there was not enough water in the bayou to wet even the thick sole of a pair of shoes, yet the negro is represented waist deep in the water in Harper's Weekly. The citt- tens who were present are represented about like what that paper painted bush' whackers during the late war. The fact is, there is about as much truth in the representations as there was in Pope's dispatches, headed from the " Headquar ters in the Saddle." Our people should remember this,' and we trust none of our citizens will patronize this bare-faced lying pictorial poster by ever purchasing a copy containing the scenes of the late riots. '. Pentistrt. It is only of late that dentistry has been brought to almost perfection, and a good dentist is a bless ing to any commnnity. - We believe that Memphis can boast of as goodly a num ber of first-class dentists as any other city, and among the best in the land is Dr. J. B. Wasson: He has performed some operations that have, as yet, been unequaled anywhere, From placing a set to extracting a tooth, Dr. Wasson bas no superior. He does his work in a man ner that is durable, and with such care that the patient feels not the least pain. One of the doctor's plugs lasts forever, and his sets look as natural as life. Dr. Wasson is not only one of the best of dentists but one of our first citizens, and when he once performs1 an operation the party will be sure to return to him. We have known people who have waited six months in order to get him to do the work, -as he ranks second to no dentist in the country ' The; Crescekt Monthly. We have received the second number of this magazine, which is nol only an honor to the South, but a work that will stand comparison with any periodical of the day. - It is just such as the South has been in need of for a long time, and our people should now come up and patron ize Mr. Evelyn in his enterprise. The present number contains ' General Lee and his Campaigns;" "The Hu ma dryad," "Philip, My Son;" "Lee to the Rear;" " Chess Gossip;" "Part I of the Bewitched Farm ;'.' " History of the Rise and Influence of Nationalism in Eu rope;" " The Letters ;" " Notes in Rome, Social and Artistic;" "Lord Macauly;" editorial notes, literature ; " The Confed erate Flag," a beautiful poem by Harry L. Flash; and a sonnet by Paul Hayne. The best talent of the South is devoted toward making this work what it is the best magazine in the country and it only remains now for our people to give it that support which it deservedly merits. Blelock & Co. are the agents for it in this city. . To-morrow. Our readers should not forget the grand tournnment which takes place to-morrow. It promises to be the grandest affair that ever came off in our city. The knights are ready for the con test, and the field is prepared to receive them. It will surely be one of those pageants that is only seen once in a life time, and ought to attract the attention of every person. The array of youth and beauty that is sure to be present will probably surpass any that has ever yet assembled in this community. The ob ject for which the tournament is given is truly a most praiseworthy one, and should be dear to every Southerner. We trust that our' people will turn out en matte on the occasion and make it truly a grand gala day. Complimentary Bkxkpit to Robert McWade. This highly estimable gentle man, who has during the sesson won the love and esteem of all the theatre-goers of our city by his chaste and capital im personations of his legitimate parts, takes complimentary benefit this evening. It is but just thnt our people give him such a testimonial ns will show their ap preciation of iiiin not only as an actor of no mean capacity hut as a gentleman of the highest order. The bill for the occasion is the beautiful drama of Temp tation, in which Mrs. Dyke will make her first appearance this season, and will conclude with the fifth act of Richard the Third, in Dutch, in both of which pieces Mr. McWade will appear in the leading parts. Give him a bumper A Single Passkkder. Early this morning a negro was seen going down the river on a raft of his own construc- ion. It was a rickety old affair, con structed of three planks and several cross pieces.- Sambo was pulling away, evi dently keeping out in the current, and looking upon the city with about as much feeling as did Carolanus when, after leaving Rome, he stood upon a hill and took a last fond look," and cursed its people. How Sambo lived, or how he managed to keep things even, we could not say, yet be seemed perfectly happy n knowing that he was traveling down the stream at the rate of five miles an honr without paying passage. Home Maxtfactobt. It is the duty of every commnnity to patronize their own hone manufactures, especially when the articles made her art equal to those that come L-om abroad. H. P I '.

We mention this because we look upon it as being the duty of every one to patronize home institutions, uud this is one that Memphis may feel proud of having. ' - Aid fob Alabama. The citizens and merchants, and members of the Chamber of Commerce of Memphis, are earnestly appealed to on behalf of the distressed families now suffering from privation in Blount county, Alabama, to Assemble at the hall of the Chamber of Commerce (Odd Fellows' Hall), on Monday, May 21st, 1866, at 4 o'clock p.m., to devise means for assisting our suffering fellow citizens who now call upon thia city, for aid, through the Hon. R. H. Wilson, their accredited agent now in Memphis.
