The arguments of counsel in the cases of Jeffries vs. Beecher, et. al., and Burford vs. Holmes et. al. occupied the entire duy yesterday. The former came up on an order of court obtained on Monday, upon P. D. Beecher, one of the defendants, to show cause why he should not be punished for contempt. The case is one involving the title to pro perty purchased at the United States Commissioner's sale for direct tuxes, and the contempt occurred in June last, when the defendant was served with a notice that the plaintiff would on a cer tain day apply for a writ of injunction to restrain defendant from taking or ob taining possession of the property in question. Whereupon Beecher obtained at once a writ of possession, and had it served.. The question of contempt was argued at length by McKue for the de fendant, and Humes for plaintiff, and taken under advisement by the Court The lutter case came up on a question of jurisdiction, and was long and ably argued by counsel. The plaintiff, Bur ford, a resident of Missouti, sued the de fendants, Davis and Vanbrook, residents of Teanessee, and Holmes, resident of Mississippi, obtaining service on Holmes in Tennessee. Holmes appears in the case and pleads to the jurisdiction of the Court Messrs. Randolph for plaintiff, and Clapp for defendant. The matters in this suit were also taken under advise ment by the Court. Mr. Keiuhart, grand juryman, was discharged from further attendance, at this term. , v '? : i " Lkosi B Ciikkot'b drug store, No. 99 Main street, is kept open night and day, and a competent druggist always in at tendance. . a 11 Coi.ohfu Gamblers. Since they have been made free there is no vice the ne groes love to indulge in bo much as gam bling, and their dens for playing, though "not fitted up In the luxurious style of the white establishments in the city, are far more numerous. Every few days the police make a descent on some of these places, capturing the sportive guests, and a search generally reveals the fact that they have not enough money to pay a week's board, and yet they play for what they have. There are only two places that we have heard of where dar kies can buck the tiger, but the establish ments where a ' greasy deck," table and chairs are kept for the lovers of old sledge, euchre, poker, etc., are numbered by the score. A descent was made on one of these establishments yesterday, near the foot of Poplar street, and a nice little game of seven-np spoiled by the arrest of the participants. This morn ing the case came tip in the Police Court There were two witnesses negroes one swearing they were playing for money, and the other swearing they were not.

The West Tennes see Whig has been informed by a gen tleman that a short time since two ne groes were detected in Shelby county, in the act of stealing a horse. They were taken in charge by some citizens, who extorted from them a confession of start ling import They stated that there was an organized band, of nearly one hun dred men, who were engaged in horse Btealing. Their headquarters were lo cated at some point on the Mississippi below Memphis, and several of their number had lately been sent to operate in West Tennessee and Kentucky. Whether the statement of these negroes be troe or not, it is certain that horse thieves have recently visited this county. Within a very short time, not less than a dozen horses have been stolen in this county, and, one night last week, three fine horses were stolen from well secured stables in this city. A gentleman in this place recently bought a horse from a man, who, on the following night, stole the horse he had sold, and made his es cape. Let this be a warning to our citi zens not to purchase a horse from any one who cannot prove that he came by the animal in an honest way.

ARREST OF A HOltSK THIEF. Two Stole n Animala Hecorered. Yesterday morning a farmer, residing in Desoto county, Miss., observed a strange negro riding a fine looking horse on the Oxford road, followed ia a few minutes by another also well mounted. Considering their appearance suspicious in view of the many horses stolen quite recently, the farmer informed some of li neighbors, aad a party was organized and started in pursuit After following the track for a few miles it left the road, but tbey still kept on and were soon re warded by the sight of the horses, which were bijehed to a tree. Tbey approached cautiously, and found one negro asleep, who said the other one bad gone off with a white man. The captured negro and the two horses were brought to town this morning by two of the party, while the others started in pursuit of the niissiug negro. The darkey in jail here says his name is London Jerry, but some folks call him Jim Seay. He has been at work . at a brickyard near the Pigeon Roost road, where, he says, he was hired by the miss ing darkey to ride one of the horses to Mississippi. Lip Davis, the escaped negre, is represented to be a very bad fellow, without any visible means of sup port, always going armed, and probably belongs to one of the gangs of robbers who have been infecting onr highways for sometime past. One of the horses has been recognized as the property of Mr. W. C. Anderson, of 72 Adums street, which was stolen from near the State Fe male College a few nights since.
