A man named Spillman wbs arrested yesterday on suspicion, but released a suon time afterward, it being proved that he was elsewhere at the time of the assassination, Sergeant Hogan, of the sixteenth regu lars, was arrested ou suspicion yester day evening, and ia now under guard awaiting examination. Coroner Cotton held an inquest on the body of Gen, Bankhead yesterday, lh jury returning a verdict that he came to his death by being struck on the head, thereby frac turing his skull, with an instrument in the Lands of some person or persons to the iurr unknown. The funeral of General Bankhead took place from Cal vary Church last evening, Bishop Quin tard officiating. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen, with prominent lawyers and citizens, paid respect to the mem' ory of the deceased by attending in full force. At a meeting of .the Board of Aldermen, he'd yesterday, Alderman Shaw introduced the following preamble and resolutions, and the same were adopted by the Board : Whereas. The announcement of the death of General Smith P. Bankhead has been made to this Board, with whom he was associated as an honored and able sneoial attorney: and whereas, we real ize in the melancholy event the loss of an able jurist, a faithful public otlicer, a public spirited citizen and kind hearted neighbor ana gentleman, inereiore, Resolved, etc .

That the Board and city officers attend the funeral. TheCocntt Commissioners. Yester day evening the Board of County Com missioners ordered that the Commission ers on Bridges and Highways, appointed by the County Conrt, report on as early a day as possible what they have done up to the present time, and refrain from making any more contracts until they receive further orders from the Board of Commissioners. Messrs. Louis and Heck were appoiatcd the Psor House Committee. A communication was re ceived from G. W. Waldren, Judge of the Municipal Court, requesting the Board to provide suitable rooms in which to transact the business of the Court. The Commissioners met this morning at the usual hour and disposed of business in a quiet manner. We learn that an appli cation for an injunction to restrain the Commissioners from attending to the county business has been drawn up by the magistrates and presented to Judge Smith, of the Chancery Court, but that functionary had not granted the injunc tion at lust accounts. New Mempuis Theater. There was a large house to greet Mrs. D. P. Bowers at the New Memphis Theater last eve ning, when she appeared as " Lady Aud ley.!' In the personation of this difficult character, with its changing emotions, Mrs. Bowers displayed genius of a high order that struck the mind of all present, who joined in the verdict that declares her one of the best actresses in America and the best "Lady Audley" in the world. Mr. J. C. McCollum, who ap peared as "Robert Aadley," is a fine young actor, and was frequently ap plauded during the evening. Mr. Dray ton, Mrs. Lanagan, Mr. Partello, Mr. Lansgan and the other members of the company gave good support Lady Audlry't Secret will be repeated this eve ning Go to Mania Kyke for mattresses and bftlding, No. 44 Monroe street 27 OcaJoaOrru-E.

At the Greenlaw Opera House last eveuiiif, Miss Blanche DeBar appeared as Kate Hardcaatle In Sht Stoopi to Cunquer. bha has correct conception of tha character and performed it in a manner that orrated much enthusiasm among the audience. Miss Blanche is destined to make her mark In the theattical world.being young, good-looking aud talented, It will take but little effort on her part to place her in tbo front ranks. Her " Kale Hard castle " was an effort that any actress might be proud of. Mr. McWade gave delineation of "Tony Lumpkin" that was highly appreciated and applauded Mr. Whiting did full justice aa " Young Marlow." To night the great sensational drama of the Hidden Hand will be pro duced, with Miss Blanche as "Capitola" and McWade as the irrepressible "Wool." With the leading characters in such hands, a food representation will be certain to be produced. The Old Game. On Saturday night we bad a dream, in which we were car ried back one vear to the time when it was said that certain Aldermen made a good thing of their official positions. We dreamed we were taking a walk on a Monday morning, near the intersection of Alabama and Poplar streets, and that the city employes were lowering an em bankment on a lot, while the city carts were carrying off the dirt On inquiry we learned that the lot had been recently leased by an Alderman, with the inten tion of building. Yesterday, while taking a walk, we saw men at work, as in our dream, but of course no member of the present Board would be guilty of some things credited to the old Board, and we dismissed the subject, but concluded to publish our dream that our readers might see now superior the members ot tne present Board are to their predecessors. Ecosomt is Gas. The inventive genius of man is ever on the alert to find some means to save time or money, and thus benefit the human race. A late in vention introduced into this city is the patent gas saving governor, by means of which the size of gas bills can be cut down considerably. We have tried oue on our meter, and found the gas bill re duced materially. Before the governor was attached the bill amounted to eleven dollars and four cents per week. The first week the governor was put on, a saving of three dollars and eighty four cents was experienced, and the next week five dollars and four cents, W. W. King t Co., 242 Second street, are agents for the gas governor in this city, and all persons who would save money should call on them and examine the unique and money saving governor.

Sent in sealed letter envelopes, free of charge. Ad dress Dr. J. SKILLIN HOUGHTON, Phila delphia. Pa. - A-U Th Oreat Need Supplied ! Pills have bean wallowed in millions. Salves have been rubbed in by the pound. Dr. Maooikl's two grand specifics are putting an end to this wholesale system of medication. One of bis famous pills is a dose. A box of his healing salve ia of more value, as a remedy for ulcerous and eruptive diseases, than a ship's cfgo of tbe ointments advertised to cure everything, bat are, all, in fact either useless or deleterious. Dr. M AoaitiL'g motto is conckktbaticw. He has placed in the smallest compass the active arinoiple of the most potent vegetable specifics, There ia ne mineral in his Pills they do not gripe they do not enfeeble. Theyicreate a vigorous appetite, and correspondinglystrength ea the digestion. They tune thelliver, clear the head and steady the nerves. No form of scrofulous disease can resist the disenfectent operation of the Salve. Tumor Abscesses, Salt Rheum, Boils, Pimples, Pus tules, etc., are thoroughly eradicated by this unrivaled medicine. In faot.MAautKL'g Bil ious, Dtstiptio and Diarbhka Pills cure where all others fail. While for Burns, Scalds, Chilblains, Cuts, and all abrasions of the skin. Maggiel's Salve is Infallible. Sold by J. Mag, giel, 13 Fulton street New York, and all Drug gists, at 25 cants par box. Cocktxrkkits I Buy no Maggiel Pills or Salve with a little pamphlet inside the box. They are bogus. The genuine have name of J Haydock on box with name of J. Maggiel, M. The genuine have the Pill surrounded with white powder." 4-119 Ifotioe. We earnestly request our friends not to pay more than five cents a copy for tbe Public Lkoof.b. We sell to the newsboys at twa cents a copy, thus allowing them over a hundred per cent profit on every paper, Monetary and Commercial Cotton Market There is some inquiry this morning, but no change in pricei. The Ej'tern markets are reported dull, wnit-n will prevent much activ- ty here. We heard of sales of middling at 28c., which is considered a fair figure. Receipts yesterday were 1067 bales. Ordinary 5224 I Middling 97(828 Good Ordinary-24f'25 Strict Midd'g2H29 Good Midd'g Z)&31 Low Miduling..2o:0-t Money Market There is but little doing in financial matters outside the regular routine. Gold is bought by our brokers at 133. Silver remains about as we loft it at our last. Buying at S2d. Selling at 128. City Scrip ia not active. There is only small offerings made at our counters. Buying at 70972c, and selling at 7475c. County war rants are dull. Our brokers show but little dis position to buy. They offer from 85 to KSo, and sell at W to !TCc. Exchange has continued steady for several days back- The supply is barely equal to the demand. Buying at par to 4C off, and selling at premium. In Govern ment bonds there has been but few transactions of late. Currency is in such demand that very little of it is being invested in this way. Concur rent money baa been dull and lifeless.
