The Favor ite of Fortune was presented at the New Memphis Theatre last evening, nnd was well reccivod, the audience giving vent to benrly marks of approbation frequent ly, as the beautiful language of the piece or the fine noting of Mr. Barrett and the company affected them. Mr. Barrett, as " Annerley," the favorite of fortune, was perfectly at home, and acted the charac tor to the life. If a person did not know better, they would suppose that the Fa- vorite of Fortune was written expressly for Mr. Barrett to perform the part of "Annerley." Mrs. Lanagun's "Hester Larrington" whs a chaste and elegant performance, in which considerable life wns thrown. Miss Stanficld as " Miss Witherby " did very well, as also did Mrs. Marston as "Lucy Larrington." Mr. Wheelock presented " Lutherlnnd " in a very creditable manner, that was worthy of him. Taking it altogether, it was an excellent performance on the part of all concerned. We were particularly struck with tbe beautiful and correct manner in which the stage was set; that is something which tbe New Memphis Theatre invuriably excels in, since Man ager Thompson took charge. To-night Shukspeare's sublime tragedy of Macbeth will be performed, with Mr. Barrett as the Royal Scot, and Mr. Wheelock as " Macduff." Mrs. Lanagan will personate " Lady Macbeth," Mr. Drayton " Ban quo," Mr. Lanagan "Duncan," Mr. Hub bard " Hecate."' Tbe performance will be accompanied with Locke's beautiful music arranged by Prof. Wm. Withers. A pleasant entertainment can be looked forward to by all who contemplate at tending this evening. Board op Health. At the meeting of the city Board of Health yesterday, t was resolved thut tbe physicians ap pointed by tbe Board to attend the indi gent sick attend no other class of disease than small-pox, cholera and diarrhea, with the distinct understanding that they receive no compensation fur any other class of disease from and after this date. The death of Df. R. L. Tuggart, a visit ing physician appointed by the Board, in the Eighth Ward, being announced, Dr. Early offered tbe following preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted : Whereas, The hand of an inscrutable and over-ruling Providence has seen lit to remove from the profession and so ciety one who was an ornament to the former and a useful and respected mem ber of the latter, Dr. R. L. Taggart, while he was humanely exerting bis fuculties in tbe performance of bis duty as an ap pointeeof this Board to attend to the in digent sick of the city; therefore, Heiohed, That we deeply sympathise with tbe family of tbe deceased in thoir bereavement, nnd offer to them our heartfelt condolement in their great mis fortune. llcsolved. further. That a copy of these resolutions be transmuted to tne family of the deceased, spread upon the minutes of this Board, and published in the daily papers of the city. A Brutal Assault. About nine o'clock Inst evening, while in the neigh borhood of Washington and Main streets, we were startled by a female voice shout ing "murder!" a number of times. A couplo of policeman nnd several citizens made thefr way to tbe pluce from whence the sounds proceeded, on the third door of the building at the southeast corner of Main and Washington, and found woman lying in the hall, sobbing con vulsively, with her clothes disordered and her person terribly bruised. She gave her name as Annie Lewis, and said she was the paramour of a saloon keeper named Jim Boyle, who having an idea that she had been unfaithful to him, had knochwd her down, kicked and beat her. A search was instituted for Boyle, which was finally abandoned in consequence of the woman declaring she would not prosecute him. It is a pity for any man who would maltreat a woman to escape the vengeance of tbe law for his brutality, but it is woman's nature to forgive him she lover,. and thus many escape who should be severely punished. ' RcoisTRATioy. The Registration Com missioner opened his office yesterday, and about two hundred persons received documents certifying that they were le gal voters. The office was crowded from morning to night with those desiring their free papers, and a large number of candidates, who were swearing for their friends and endeavoring to obtain the necessary documents for them. The crowd was so great that the Commis sioner was considerably bothered, and sometime if appeared as if he did not know whether he was on his heels or his head. Occasionally he woo Id get a breathing spell by jumping up and in an authoritativo tone, putting to some un fortunate individual the, doubly-distilled-Radical-Brownlow-iron-clad oath, which was generally taken with faces sugges tive of anything but a pleasant feeling. It is probable tbe registration will be resumed to-morrow. t , ... i Enterprise. The great requisites for success in America are pluck and enter prise; and Uelmbold, the well-known druggist, has in bis business career evinced both of these qualities. The con sequence is that he bag achieved a suc cess. He has one of the finest establish ments in New York city, while tbe repu tation of the well-known Helmbold's Preparations is co extensive with civili zation. These preparations, it is almost needless to say, are not " quack medi cines" nor "patent medicines;" they are simply legitimate, scientifically-compounded preparations, which for their appropriate complaints are without a rival. They have been before tbe public for many years, and are at the present moment more in demand than ever. This shows conclusively their genuine merit. At Helmbold's new store, near the Metro politan Hotel, in addition to these prep arations the Extracts of Buchu and Sarsaparilla are sold all varieties of drugs and chemicals. The establishment is perhaps tbe finest in the city of New York, and the public are respectfully invited to call and judge for themselves. Greenlaw Opera House. A fair house greeted tbe first appearance of Mr. Charles Dillon at the Greenlaw Ope ra House last evening. His rendition of "Virginius," was a masterly piece of acting just what we were led to expect from his reputation. In the fourth act he was grand even to sublimity, evoking a well merited storm of applause. He was well supported by Messrs. Hill and Cur ran. The wondrous feats of Robert Iloudin, the great prestidigitateur, con cluded the entertainment, and were highly appreciated by those present To-night Massenger's! play of A New Way to ray Old Debts will be produced, with Mr. Dillon as "Sir Giles Over reach," concluding with the rnagio. feats of Robert Houdin. Empress Cloths. An entire new stock of these popular dress goods just received at Elsons', 297 Main street , 25 Election of Directors. At meet ing of the stockholders of the Memphis and Ohio Railroad, held at the offiae of the company yesterday morning, the fol lowing gentlemen were elected to serve as directors for the ensuing year: Amos Woodruff, Nathan Adams, Geo. T. Tay lor, G. M. Bartlett, C B. Church, John L. Snffarans, Wm. M. Farrington, Edgar McDavitt, B. A. Williumson, B. C. Brown, Ira M.Hill, Thomas G. Smith and J. B. Mercer. The stock held by I lie city and county controls this road, so fur ns voting is concerned. Mayor Park and Alderman Crcigbton represented the city at the election yesterday, and Es quires Blakely and Mercer the county. They selected the above Board and elected thenv Stealing Saddle-Baos and Carry ino Concealed Weapons. John Came ron was arrested yesterday evening for taking a pair of saddle-bags off a horse belonging to Geo. R. Grove. He wus fini'd twenty-five dollnrs in the Police Court this morning. A pistol was foitud on him when arrested, for which the Commissioner fined bim fifty dollurs. He was without funds, nnd will have to work his way to freedom by one bun dred and fifty-six days service in the chain-gang corps. In view of the recent tragic result of carrying deadly weapons, we learn that every person arrested for carrying concealed weapons will be fined fifty dollars. Think of that, you folks that walk around with a young arsenal about your persons. Memphis and Charleston Railroad.

Some of the magistrates are very indignant that Judge Leonard took no other means of officially informing them of the removal of tbe county seat to Memphis than to notify them through the columns of two news papers they hardly ever read or saw. Seventeen of them met at Raleigh yes terday, but owing to the absence of tbe clerk and records tbey could transact no business. However, they passed resolu tions denouncing the course of Judge Leonard, and declining to meet him in Memphis until tbe county seat shall have bees designated by legal authority.

It is an incentive to other artists to strive to excel in the legitimate walks of the profession, and worthy of a city that has the name of honoring and rewarding dramatic talent in whomsoever found.
