Jitttt, who wag announced to eclipse John
Denier yesterday dijl not do so, she suc
ceeded in eclipsing the grand Convention-
ia Court Square bo far a the
number' present was concerned.. "Court
Square was crowded wilh beautiful ladies
and bappy children, all eagor to catch a
glimpse of the during female.' Second
street was totally blockaded from Madi
son to Court by a larjje nn ruber of vehi
cles and a host of juveniles, black and
white, who hud gathered from all quar
ters of tbe city to' see the free show,
many of them forgetting in their en
thusiasm the commands of parents and
the thtanking .they would be sure to set
when they returned borne. All the win
dows of the surrounding buildings were
Sited with tbe expectant faces and brrgbt
ejes of bappy groups awaiting (he ap
pearanoe .of the performer, and as fur as
the eye could reaob were to be seen per
se an . on ' housetops, at windows
la , carriages, jn fact, evfrjwhere
that a glimpse of the rope
coald be obtained. - The rope wag
stretched from the soutJiwcut corner of
the Ayres Block to the sou ineust coruer
of the building on Court street, imme
diately in jbe rear of the Desoto Block.
Four o'clock was the hour appointed for
the feat, and the umny thousands preseut
waited until lix b'olock before their curi
osity and patience was rewarded by ob
serving Madcnioinellti dressed in ballet
costume,' with the exception of a wide
briainied straw bat, stepping carefully
along tbe rope, .balance pole in baoji.
She walked half way acrossand then
stepped backward for a distanoeof about
fifly feet, which appeared quite difficult,
and CnuM-d many hearts among the vust
audience to beat rapidly, soaie even
closing their eyes so not toeee her fafl.
When sbe again advanced she appeared
to step more firmly and with greater ease,
and soon succeeded in reaching the end
of her periloul jonrney'rn saffety, amid
the load cheering 'of those whose eyes
were turned heavenward. Tbe perform
ance of Mlli Carojiyta was tory.ojOrsors

Report ok tbe Riots. The select
committee appointed by Congress to in
vestigate' the MetaphtV riots, have made
a repnrt Mr. SnanUin dissenting
which Is '5u-what' might Tie' vs peeled
frem eMch aonrew.'. It. sea .the -.out-,
break resulted froS a t;pllisiop betweea
toe policemen and the discharged colored
soldierg, which ' was - seized upo tig a
pretext for an organized and bloody
massacre of the negroes, regardless ' of
Ige, ter r condition,- rhspired by the
press and led on by the aw era officers of
the la wy comprising tbe city government
and others. Tbe committee believe it to
be tbe doty of the Government to arrest,
try and punish the offenders by military
authority, and ttf " levy a tax upon th.1
citizens of Memphis, sufficient to cover
the losses on' all property ''destroyed.
They also state that there' would be so
safety "for loyal men if the troops were
withdraWJL . There ia-oee thing we can
tell the Congressional Committee, and
that ia that the people of Memphis, and
especially tbone residing ry the eonthern
nortirln of the eity, have experienced a
feeling of security of person and proper
ly since the disbandiuent of the colored
troop and the late Tiols that they ;had
not felt for a couple of years previous;
Ind hrrwever misch we may regret the
bad name which has been given to our
city by' lying' Radicals 'at home 'and
abroad, reporting exaggerated accounts
of every occurrence, there ia no doubt
that tbe lesson -taught the negroes It)
May has been of incalculable benefit to
the .citizens of, Memphis.. All classes,
o matter what their politics, have ob
served the changed manner of the ne
groes since that time, when the events
of a tew days (aught them their place,,
and we shall consider this improvement, '
go beneficial to the community, cheaply
purchased, if the oiiy does havetp' pay
for the property destroyed. - -

cate of naturalization, or any other proof
of citizenship other than that ha bad
voted as above stated. Tbe petitioner
olaims that this was all that was necessa
ry nnder the law. Tbe case was argued

Highway Robber Aoai Skirmish
on the JJollow Fo&d Road. On Tues
day evening five farmers living ip De
soto county, Miss.,' sfarted ' from town
with supplies ia two wagons, two. of the
party being qn horseback. They took
the Holiow Ford road, and when in tbe
Konconnah bottom were, hailed by ft
party of men, from' the brash who or
dered them to surrender. Tbe farmers
drew their pistols and fired .at (tb rob
bers, at the same time driving their
horses and wagons along as rapidly as
possible. Tb robbers returned the
fire, the vkirmigh being kept up and
bote relumed for about a mile,' without
aqy of the farmers being hit. A horse
fastened to tbe rear of a wagon, broke
kioaeVRtid wag secured by : the robbers.
. This terrible state of affairs has con
tinued totig enough, and we hops Suparn
intendent Beaumont will immediately or
ganize a force of mounted police to scour
tbe various roads leading -to 'the city
and thus give some protection to the
many persons whose business calls them
to travel. -The numerous . outrages
committed lately by various bands of
robbers has made the road a terror, to-
farmers, many of whom now arrive, here
in parties, fully armed and tqnippfd for
a fight. W'p heard at one party who
were met a short distauce from' the city
yesterday, who "had their advance: gaard
with double-barrelled, shot guns in
front of the wagons and their rear pro
tected in the same manner.

Thr Jicligto-PkUotnpKxnl Journal says of it :
" The aathor bar given, in a vein ef thmrht
for rid and glowing as bis own saliva elime,
ear of tbe fiaet analyses of Spiritualism and
iu blessinrs ever altered to the world. He
proves it to be a soienliho and i-bilosophie reli
gion, and explains il so clenrly a keptic mot
only wonder that k- has not before investigated
and accepted teai-hintf. so b ri.-al. He shows
that it bar existed trout the beginning sf time.
He regards the Bible as a history of Spiritual
ism t showing that all -people hare had their
saered. b wks, from whence tboy drew inspira
tion, and an overrulin Power whom they wor
ship by some nsme : and that nirite have ever
communed with mortals. His lanjiiiaire is
beautiful : his ressomr soand. He quotes
freely from the scicutino minds of the age. His
book bears evidence of being the produc ion of
a cultured rnied. He thus rpeaks in candid
spirit to all striving lor truth " Ac.
Where faith hoe faded nnder tbe mnlight Of
rcienrw, it plants philosophy upon which hupe
and hrr"nr may lire and grow into a glory;
Bad to tbe-utaadr of thr depressed and op
pressed peopled the unfortunate South, it will
ear eemlort and consolation, and wreathe
their lives wilh a new and higher ehaxm than
ever thev po.ee.srd before.
