TUE " TRIAL OF 'EB. TITl'S. ;
More Testimony Examination of
Witnesses this Morning.
The first witness examined after we
closed our report Saturday was Major
Phil. T. Allen, who stated that he knew
Eb. Titus for a nnmber of years; was in
his command during tho war. When
sober he was as good hearted a boy as
ever lived, but when drinking he was
reckless and dangerous, making no dis
tinction between friends and enemies.
. A. Fuller testified that he saw Titus
two or three days before the shooting,
when beseemed to be nnder the influence
of liquor. ?. . , .. f
J, T. Beaumont stated that Titos was
mild and good-hearted at all times, ex
cept when drinking ; he was then quar
relsome and reckless.
Sam. P, Walker saw Titus at Hernando
at the time of the Gallaway-Jordan affair
of honor. He Beemed much excited, and
apparently under the influence of liquor,
and said, " show me the man," alluding
to General Jordan ; " I will kill him my
self;" he said if there was no fight or
row he would kill Jordan himself. . ,. .
1 C. P.'Wooldridge saw Titus the day
before the homicide at several places. In
the evening was at the Opera Ilouse, had
a pistol, and said he would shoot the man
on the stage. ;'- ? "
Patrick McConnell testified that Titus
came into Dixey's Baloon ten or fifteen
days before the shooting, ordered several
bottles of wine and wanted to take sev
eral bottles away with him. . II o had two
derringer pistols, and when Colonel
Crockett started to leave he ordered him
to stop or he would shoot him. It was
late and told Titus the police-would be in
to arrest us ; he said let them come, he
had two shots for them. He left without
paying for the wine, and about five or six
days after went' to the Garabaldi saloon
and asked him for the money for the
wine. He seemed irritated ; took out two
pistols 'and laid them down in front of
the glass. ' Did not pay, ' but said he
would walk down and see Mr. Dixey.
Col. McRea testified that "a note signed
'E, H. B.' was received by Col. Titus, and
answered . on my suggestion, that we
might idee tify the writer; on the follow
ing day a small man, with blue eyes and
light hair, whom I would recognize now,
called at my office ; I was alone ; his first
remark was that he knew some facts of
importance to the State, which perhaps
the counsel of Titus did not know; that
he was poor, could not leave here without
money, he had a good offer in fiew Or
leans, and if be went, Col. Titus must
pay his way, and support him until he
could get into business. I dealt with the
young man as the author of the letter
which had been received; I told him that
if his testimony would be- important to
the State we could not entertain a prop
osition to pay his wsy to New Orleans
but that if it was essential to the defeat
we would be authorised to pay bis board
and expenses to remain if he was poor
of a non-resident No proposition wta
made to pay his way to New Orleans, on
the contrary, he was told in the presence
of Col Yerger, CoL Sale, and I think
Col. Bullock, ,lhat nothing of the . sort
could be entertained. I told this man
what he might say would be in confidence,
unless I should become convinced that
he had sworn fahely.' A man calling
himself Cameron called at my office.
The witness was asked if Cameron sta
ted what his testimony would be, which
was objected to, and Wm. Cameron sent
for. Another party named Clark called
on this business. He opened his conver
sation in the same tenor as the other,
leading me to ask if there were two 'E.
H. B.'s,' the initials of the anonymous
notes; I treated both of them as the au
thor, and regarded both of them as con
cerned equally. Had two interviews
J. H. Cameron, being recalled, stater",
he did not know Col. McRse or Judge
Perkins. , Did notgo to their office after
the death of Capt Monroe. Col. McRae
was, here introduced and stated he did
not know witness.
L. H. Spencer stated Titus was quiet
and peaceable when sober, but turbulent,
reckless and dangerous when drunk. He
pot drunk occasionally, and went on an
T. L. Wallace's testimony was similar
to the above.
T. W. Wilkins said Titus was quiet
when sober; had seen him violent several
times when drinking.
Juran Raj nor stated prisoner was
reckless when drinking, but quiet when
sober. Some time ago saw him In a
clothing store on Main street; he had oat
his pistol, threatening to shoot the mer
chant, " for being a d d old rascal," as
he said; the merchant had done nothing
to him. -"- I ii il '-' i ' s ' '
James Southerland testified to the good
qualities of Titos' during the last five
years, when sober.
John F, Sale stated, "I know a man
named Thompson, the same who is a wit
ness. S Saw him with Col.'McRac, Judge
Perkins and Col. Yerger; I saw him twice
afterwards; he stated that be was poor,
was qut of employment, and wanted to go
to New Orleans j knew some facts against
Titus, he said, and was willing to go
away if we would pay his expenses; I
had come in response to a note from Col
McRae, saying that a witness was
in the office; Colonel McRao intro
duced me to Thompson, saying, jj'jhis
is ' the'1 witness who has come in
response to the note we wrote in
reply to the ' E. H. B.' letter,' he made
no objection to this statement, and all
the conversation subsequently was based
upon that nndrrstanding. The stove
pipe hat fellow came iato my office and
made a proposition as narrated by Col
McRea, and asked me if he would be
protected in anything he might say; I
told him that I was not in the habit of
retailing the conversation of gentlemen,
wilh a mental reservation for any man
who might prove himself a scoundrel by
making base proposition to barter his
testtmony ; I treated his proposition as I
did that of Thompson ; never entertained
a proposition from either of tbem to pay
their expenses to leave. Thompson re
lated the testimony he could give ; it was
substantially the same he nave before the
Col. Yerger said : I was shown this
letter, signed 'E. A. B.,' by Colonel
McRea ; we agreed that to identify the
writer Colonel Titus should reply; I af
terwards met Thompson at Col McRea's
office, and understood that he was the
witness who came in response to Colonel
Titus' reply; he proposed to send him to
New Orleans or board hi in here, accord
ing to onr estimation of his evidence;
we gave him to understand that if he was
a non-resident, or too poor to remain,
and his evidence was essential to the de
fense, we would feel authorized by Col
Titus and the law to pay his board to
remain; otherwise, he could go or re
main at his option; no pledge whatever
was given, or proposed or entertained to
pay his expenses to get him to leave; the
matter was referred to General Sale for
THE EVIDEXCE THIS MORNING.
First witness this morning was
Ed. A. Beecher, who said he knew the
prisoner for several years. Saw him the
day or day before Monroe was killed, on
Jefferson street Told him he should
stop his course or ho would hare mania
)olu. Judged so from the looks of his
eyes, which were wild in appearance and
unnatural Told him he was throwing
himself away, and making a d d fool of
himself. Ha recognized mo and shook
' J. O. Tuttle, policeman, recalled, sta
ted : I have ascertained the name of the
pettifogging lawyer, it was Wilson. As
certained his name from the man he
boarded with. He is not a one-armed
man. Do not know the nams of the board
ing house keeper. Went to jail where
Titus was confined the morning after the
tragedy, Do not remember that I told
Titus I drew a pistol to protect him and
save his life when I arrested him. Saw
Mr. Titus, sr , in bis office the same day.
Went there because young Titus asked
me to call and see his father, and tell
him he wanted to see him. Did not go
to 232 Second street, or 293 Front
street, and get ' a man named
Woolridge to go with me. There
were other persons in the room
when I saw Mr. Titus. Did not know
any of them. Had little conversation
with Mr. TituB, told bim his son was at
the station-house and delivered a mes
sage. Do not remember Ujat Mr. Titus
referred me to his lawyer. He might
have told me so; don't think he asked
me any tacts in relation to tne arrest.
Know a policeman named W. H. Smith.
Smith was' brought into court Saw
him the day I came here to give my tes
timony; had a conversation with him
told him I had an inducement offered to
su9 of (10,000 in specie to go to Europe;
can't remember that I spoke of Mr. Titus,
sr., in relation to the offer; did not say
that any man had made me the offer the
day before; did not say the bottle of
brandy cost me one thousand dollars, but
said I would bet a thousand dollars to
one cent that it would be a long time be
fore they would get pay for it; the ten
thousand dollar offer was never made by
Mr. Titus, sr. Gen. Sale asked witness
if he had been arrested in St Louis for
passing counterfeit money, when Colonel
Gantt objected, and said witness was not
bound to answer the question. The
objection was sustained by the Court -
W. H. Smith, policeman. Was not
acquainted with the honesty, morality,
truth or veracity of the witness, Tuttle.
Saw bim in Opal saloon on the morning
he was summoned to appear here ; said
he was an important witness in the case;
remarked that he had been offered f 10,
000 in specie to go to Europe; some one
had been trying to get him away; think
he said the old man. Soon after that we
were in a confectionery where he bad a
bottle of brandy, and said, "do yon know
what it cost me 7" He made one. other
remark that I do not remember. Told
CoL Hepburn, and afterward, the conn
gel for the prisoner, of the conversation
the same day. When be spoke of the old
man I understood he referred to Mr. Ti
tus. From his remarks I judged that the
$10,000 was' in relation to this case.
Wm. A. Ayres was asked a few ques

Man'a Coat with $25,500
Greenbacks Stolen. -
About three o'clock yesterday evening
a man named J. C. Ldwenhaupt, who is
clerk in his brother's store at Helena,
started from that place for this city with
$25,500 in his possession. He took pas
sage on the steamer Ned Tracey, and be
fore starting had the money sewed in his
coat, which he placed under the head of
his bed before retiring for the night
This morning the boat arrived here, and
when Lowenhaupt awoke, be found his
coat containing the money gone. Infor
mation was immediately given to the
police, but no arrest baa been made np

ANOTHER DEED OF BLOOD.
Wolf River Ferryman Shot and
About seven o'clock laet evening Jus.
Miller, ferryman on the point where the
Memphis and Big creek Plank road
crosses Wolf river, was shot and instantly
killed by a man named Loll Ward. We
have been unable to learn the origin of
the difficulty. Loll Ward and his brother
formerly resided about five miles north'
east of the city, but have been living re
cently in Mississippi. They returned a
couple of weeks since, and after the
deed last night disappeared to parts un

The Hahlok Brothers and their

We understand that a shrewd and well
known Australian manueer has offered
them an engagement for six months at
the seemingly liberal ugure of $20,000
expenses there and return via Europe
but even this is not a sutlicient induce
ment, so widely popular have they be
come in this country. Since their advent
the cause of muscular development has
gained a new interest, and our people are
doing more justice to themselves, and are
preparing: the youth of our land to live
longer, more usetul and nappier lives.
The subject of phjsicial education has
begun to be a matter of importance, and
though we may never rear such brilliant
gymnasts as these acknowledged cham
pions of the art, still, it is impossible to
witness in them the perfection to which
the human frame can be brought, with
out stimulating every one to a desire to
make the most of what physique nature
has given us.
This extraordinary combination of
talent will open at the Greenlaw Opera

to go early, for our word for it, a perfect

know of nowhere else that the real, pure
old fashioned time can be so well ob
tained as at the establishment of our
friend, F. X. Trudeau & Co., No. 7 Mad
ison street. Mr. Trudoaa is the only
one in our cily who takes the time by
correct astronomical obtervatiotu. To
enable him to do which, hp has erected a
complete observatory at his residence;
CI Linden street, corner of St. Martin,
wbere he enjoys bimnelf by studying the
gun, moon and stars, and then calcula
ting the exact time.. His instrument is
of so delicate a character as to enable
him to calculate time to one tent k of a
second of time. We commend Trudean
k Co, to all who want a correct watch
or clock, a fine ring, or a set of spoons
and forks of sterling silver, or anything
else of their fine stockfeeling confident
that what they sell will be found fully to
"come to time." Their establishment is
at No. 7 Madison street, where friend
Trudeau will be happy to wait on all who
wish "time by the forelock" and keep
"Father Time" always with them. t

Cistcs-' Troubles. Mike -,Lipman's
circus left the city this morning and ap
pears at Hernando to-night. The circus
opened two weeks since wilh bright pros
pects, the canvas being filled the first
night and many being utiablo to gain ad
mission. The rainy spell, however,
dampened the ardor ot the circus-loving
folks, and slim audiences was the result
The last exhibition they gave was on
Wednesday night last' Thursday night
it rained and after drumming a half doz
en people in, they returned their money.
Friday and Saturday the rain continued
and there was no show. Several attach
ments for debt were issued against the
circus on Friday, the horses, etc., being
seized, and many thought the circus
would " bust" But they were mistaken,
for Mike Lipman got out of bis financial
troubles yesterday, and has departed
South, a poorer man by his efforts to run
circas in Memphis against the rain
and mud.' ' ' " . .. .
A Long Tramp. A man came into the
First District station-house about eight
o'clock last evening, and asked to stay
all night, as he bad just walked from
Cairo. He said his name was Joseph
Bruce, that he was an English sailor from
North Shields, and came to this country
to sail on the' lakes last spring. He
made bis way to Cairo, and being unable
to get work, crossed into Kentucky, went
to Columbns, and then followed the rail
road track to this city. , He started from
Cairo last Monday morning, and said he
inquired for work along the road, but
ceuld not get any as he did not under
stand farming; some days heot some-
tning to eai, ana otners ne got notuing.
Captain Garrett allowed him to stay in
the station-house all night, gave him a
good breakfast this morning, when he
started out to hunt something to do to
make a living.
The Oshei Robbery. Mr. Oshei bag
furnished the following description of the
articles stolen from his safe to the police.
It seems more like the contents of the
safe belonging to a 'jewelry store than a
drinking saloon : Two hundred and fifty
dollars in U. 8. Treasury notes; one set
of ladies' brooch and ear-rings, set with
diamonds, one of the same set with bril
liants, one of the same set wilh pearls
and emerald, a necklace Bet with pearl
a gold cross set with seven brilliants, a
brilliant cluster ring, R pair of ear-rings
set with eight brilliants, three silver
watches, one gold hunting case watch,
two gold chains, and three pistols, one of
the Colt manufacture.
Housebreaeiko. This pastime and
means of support of some individuals is
on the increase, and should be checked
by the administering of lead pills, in
forcible doses.. The residence of S. It.
Wood, 77 Market street, was entered at
a late hour on Saturday night, and a
gold watch and chain and some other
jewelry valued at four hundred dollars
stolen. About two o'clock on Sunday

Monetary and Commercial
The week just closed has been one of grea
dullness in the cotton market. Many causo
have led to this result the disagreeable rain
weather which prevailed nearly the who le
week, togolher with the seeming indiffcren e
that planters have of selling at the present low
rates: business, therefore, for the whole of la
week, has been dull In all the departments o :
trade, while prospects, as to the future, see in
very unsatisfactory. Short crops, with a tigh
money market, depress trado te an alarmin
extent. We never havo, at this season of th e
year, seon business in Memphis so general
dull. We are told that dull trade and big h
rente have compelled many to seriously think
of boxing up their goods and closing.their stores.
We think the day not far distant when land
lords will be glad enough to Iget present ren
for their buildings without suing their tenant
every quarter, as they now do. Altogether, th
trade of Memphis, both preentand prospect
ive, is apparently in a very unsatisfactory con
dition. Ordinary ...2tjS27 I Middling -30331
