Among the many improvements that have been going on in our city during the past year, the fitting up of this temple of the drama is especially worthy of notice. Tb9 scaffolding hns been removed from the interior, and the beautiful appear ance which it will present three weeks from to-night, when it opens for the sea son, shows itself amid the dust, paint and general bustle of preparation. It has been modeled somewhat after the style of the Varieties, at New Orleans, and for architectural beauty and elegance of finish, will compare, with any theatre in the Sonth or West. In the parqnette nnd dress circle will be placed one thou Bund cushioned chairs. The family cir cle will seat seven hundred persons easi ly, the seats being wide, with plenty of room to pass in front of those seated. The upper tier will seat eight hundred, which places the seating capacity of the building at two thousand five hundred. Patent heating apparatus that is already in position, will keep the whole hoase nt any desired temperature in winter, while the large windows of the building will furnish plenty of air to keep it cool in ummer. It will be illuminated ' by a chandelier, that will be suspended from the centre of the ceiling, shooting its rays ol light from hundreds of burners. One thing we are particularly pleased with, and that is the facility with which the audience cati be let out of the build ing in case of fire or other alarm, doors on each side affording ready access to the two grand entrances. Mr. F. A. Tan nehill, the manager, is making all neces sary preparations to open with eclat on the fifteenth of next month, the inside of the Opera House now presenting many of the features of a bee-hive everybody being hurd at work.' The painters are at work hero, the carpenlers there, the machinist somewhere elae all trying to be ready as soon as possible. The stock company and a list of the stars were published in the Public Lir oer a short time since, and comprise many names well known to fame as walk ing in the front ranks of the profession. From what we have seen and heard, Mr. Tannehill will make the Greenlaw Opera Boose well worthy of the patronage of the Memphis public, who are always willing to appreciate and crown with success those who cater to fneir tastes by producing first class dramatic enter tainments. Notice. The disinfectant recom mended to be nsed by the Board of Health, and which is only prepared by P. I.

At the adjourned meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, held yesterday, for the purpose of considering the pro priety of granting the petition of the Memphis Freighting Company, all the member of the Board were present, ex cept Mr. Wundernian. The report of the Landing Committee and the opinion of the City Attorney both favorable to the project were read, when the follow ing communication was handed in: Mump nig. Teh.. August 24, 1877. To thg Board of Mayor and Alderman : GiXTtiiMEsT: '.' It seems that a misap prehension has arisen in the minds of some of your honorable body in regard to the intentiun of the Memphis Freight ing Company toward the draying inter ests of the city To dispel any such mis conception of the object of this corpora tion, the company propose, in any con tract ij.wajr make with, the city, to bind itself not to engage or be Interested in any manner whatever in the draying business; or to engage or be interested in any manner whatever in carrying goods from point to point in the city, ex cept as contemplated in the charter of the company ; that is, to convey the goods from the boats at the levee to the summit pf rthetbluH arid there deliver the same to the draymen of the city. For the company, C. H. Ebbert, President. Alderman Johnson offered a resolution to the effect that the application of the Memphis - Freighting Company be al , lowed, after the -agreements, terms and conditions upon wlch thoy are to exer cise this privilege, Have been' entered into with the city of Memphis. ' An exciting debate and colloquy en sued, members being frequently called to order. .The measure was supported by Messrs. Grace, Johnson and Leonard in speeches., of various length, while Messrs. Morgan, Kill, Glancey, O'Mlho ney and Kelley did their best against it. The resolution was adopted by a vote of eight to six, as follows : Yeas John son, Leonard, Walker, Burke, Creighlon, Harvey, Toof, Grace. ' Nays O'Maho ney, Glancey, Morgan, O'Donnell, Kelly, Green. . , Fre8R arrival of gent's furnishing goods. Pbil. T. Allen & Co., 22-1 w 6fi Jefferson street. The EL80K8.-Memphis boasts of a great many smart men, good men, wise men, etc., but we doubt if she has any mora energetic men than the Elson Bros. We, understand lhat they have just ef fected an arrangement by which the tal ent and energy of all the brothers are to be devoted to the establishment here of a really " Mammoth Cheap Store." To effect this they have called in all their branch stores (of which tbey had quite a number), and by the aid of the immense capital centred in one store, they intend tq offer goods at such a ridiculously low profit as to command the largest share of the trade that comes to Memphis. One of the brothers will be continually in the Eastern markets watching the large trade auction sales there, while another is at (he manufactories 'selecting the best goods at the lowest prices, thus enabling them to compete with any of the jobbers in the Eastern markets. Wholesale buyers, who intend visiting the Eastern cilies, will dd well by first examining the stock of this firm, and wo can easily guarantee them that they will save their expenses East, anj have their goods de livered in Memphis cheaper than they can buy their goods in Cincinnati or St. Louis, for their retail department has also undergone many improvements. Everything is done by system even to the small matter of sending out parcels. They employ none .but men who thor oughly understand their business, thus assuring to their customers that no mis representations will be made, as is often done through ignorance of the salesman. Elson Bro; also wish it distinctly under stood that they employ no " ronners" or influential -men at fancy salaries, prefe- ing to give their custemers the; benefit of this large Raving in one of the largest expenses tof a first-class store. Another important feature is the adoption of a fctrictly one price system, whereby every body knows that the price asked is the lowest, and that others have not bought the same goods by " haggling " at a lower price. It also saves time to both Celler and purchaser. We would advise all purchasers, wholesale and retail, to give ..ihe "Mammoth Cheap Store" trial before purchasing elsewhere. Go To the Good Idea to-night. Board of Health. At the meeting of the Board of Health yeBterday the com mittee appointed at last meeting, re ported that they had called on the Mayor, and he was willing that the State Hos pital should be nsed for a cholera hos- pital, orat least a portion of it, under the direction of Dr. Keller. Should the dis ease demand it, the whole State Hospital would be used for cholera patients. The Mayor disapproved of the erection of hospital tents at Fort Pickering. He (the secretary) also had a conference with S.r B. Beaumont, Superintendent Metropolitan Police, who expressed every desire to co-operate with the Board of Health for Ihe general good, and would iBstroet his Sanitary Seigi-ant In co-operate with the disinfect i nc ei.i A roui raunication wag reaJ from the Mayor, in which he instructed Dr. Cavanagh to make all arrangements for the aick, and stating that he had given directions to the City Engineer td erect stable at the wharf for ambulances, etc. Some dis cussion wa bad aa ' to the disinfectant adopted by the Board, when a resolution was passed that it be made public. It is "Sulphate zinc, 5 pounds; copperas, 45 pounds; carb. lime, 53 pounds; creosote, drachms; pulverized charcoal, 2 pounds."

While the steamer Marble City was on her way np the river last night, the ropm of a passenger named H. Lazarus was entered while he was asleep and his gold watch and seven hundred and seventy eight dollars stolen. 'As. soon 'as 'he missed the money and watch, he in formed the Captain of the boat, who sus pected certain parties that hsd got off at Island 40, and an individual who had jus! been landed at a woodyard. i The boat returned to the wood-yard, where the suspected individual, w(io-;jve his name as John Saunders, was arrested. He stated that he did not steal the money, but that the other parties did, and he would help Mr. Lazarus to find them. They returned to the city on a boat that was passing, and procuring the assistance of officer - Libey, arrested Edwin Byron and J. II. Patterson for committing the robbery. They pro tested their irrnocence, but the clerk of the boat they came from Island 40 on says he saw the watch with one of them, and they appeared tp have plenty of money: ! Fifty dollaSrs ' were found :on them when arrested. The trio are now ... . , 1 : in jail on a warrant issuea ny -esquire Creighton this morning. The Good Idea re-opens to-night SHOOTING , AFFRAY.

Galloway seized it, he touched the spring, when it went off, wounding the Colonel in the hand. The greatest excitement ensned as Woods attempted to make his escape, several persons crying "hang him," and there is no doubt bis life would have been sacrificed if it had not been for Gen.

As this dread . pestilence prevails to some extent "in the eitiies above,' and at ' New ' Orleans, we may re5orahly. look.. for,its appearance in our city nt some time this fall or wiutsr. But we believe it will "hardly be In sn epidemie form, as it has never prevailed ill our city to any great extent in its for mer visitations., Aside, from, this, ao pains are spared by thf' city 'iiiifhorities and -the Hoard of Health to render-evrr cfBcient aid to protect the public healtli such as cleansing the city by the remeval of filth and decaying matters, and the free use of disinfectants, and the arrange-.' merit ef - liable- hospital' for the poor,' in different pans f the city, with nurvs and - oillcers. If these arrangements are carried out as contemplated . by the city authorities, we may reason ably believe that this' dieaV Sf it should, appear ia our midst, will be confined, to very yarrow limits, and soon, disappear from (he city.
