New Memphis Thsatkb, Those who
' failed to attend the theater last night
missed a rare musical treat. Lady Don's
"Josephine," in the Child of the Regi
ment, was finely rendered. Her acting
unu an!i.!tar! unrl priarminrr. nnrl lipr
singing exquisite. There are few vocal
iiits on the stage possessing voices as
fine or as well cultivated as Lady Don's ;
and no artists more perfect mistresses of
the comic drama. Mr! Mitchell's "Seal
lade " was the rough, great-hearted Ser
geant to the life, and Mr. Ellerton's
"Guillot," like all his persona
tions, was fine. He never overacts
anything, sticks to the text, and trusts
to his abilities to carry him through.
Mr. Ferguson's "Duke" was a little
overdone. He is quite acceptable in
foppish characters, but occasionally
overshoots the mark. Tbe last act
dragged heavily, in consequence of the
inability of several members of tbe com
puny to utter tbe text. At times the
"sticking" was painful, and nothing
but Lady Don's admirable acting and
fine singing relieved tbe closing scenes
from damnation. This is the first time
wo have bad occasion to notice this defect
In any member of tbe company, and we
mention it merely because a few rcpeti
tions would dissipate tbe fine impression
their excellent acting has already pro
duced. This evening has been set apart
for Lady Don's benefit. A splendid bill
lias been selected, and the large number
ol seats secured up to yesterday insures
a large audience. The opening piece
will !e Mark Lemon's mirth provoking
comedy of tbe Ladies' Club. Lady Don
will appear as "Mrs. Cuptain titz
smjthc," taking the chair in the cele
bruted "club sceue," and singing " Gas-
sier's Valse." The capital burlesque of
Kenilvorth will conclude the ovening's
entertainment In it Lady Don will per
sonnte " Earl of Leicester," singing tbe
exquisite ballad of " Good bye, Sweet
heart," and the " Garter Song." Go to.

The oomtnuoity of Sardis, Panola
county, Miss., were thrown into a state
of great exoitement last Saturday even
ing by a most shocking tragedy, whose
mysterious circumstances have materi
ally added to tbe general horror. Late
in tbe afternoon Dr. A. M. Settle, well
known, in this city, and an old man
named Anthony Foster, left Sardis, on
tbeir way home, each residing a fsw
miles from tbe town. Tbey were mount
ed, Settle on a mule and Foster on a
horse, and were met by several parties
when half, a mile out. A little before
dark; some buys walking to Sardis saw
the body of a man lying in the road;
beside it stood a mule. An examination
revealed the body to be that of Dr. Set
tle, who was personally known to the
boys. Tbe appearance of the body as it
lay in tbe road, and tha proximity of the
animal, induced tbe boys to believe that
the Doctor bad been thrown by the ani
mal and stunned by the fall. Iu the ex
citement they failed to discover any
blood, and had they done so would doubt
less have attributed it to the fall. Turn
ing the body over they discovered that
the heart had ceased to beat Tbe boys
now oroceeded to the nearest house and
communicated the facts to the 'occu
pants. A short time afterward a con
veyance was procured and the body taken
to Sardis. Here it was examined by a
physician, who at first adopted the opin
ion of the boys that the Doctor bad fallen
from tbe mule and broken his neck ; but
finally discovering that tbe bair at the
back of the head was saturated with
blood, be made a more critical investi
gation. A bullet hole, evidently pro
duced by tbe ball of a deringer pistol,
was found, and the horrible truth flashed
upon the minds of the spectators that
their old friend had been murdered.
Tbe ball entered tbe back of the head
and ranged downward toward the stom
ach, doubtless instantly producing death.
The deceased was well known to nearly
everybody in Sardis and tie county, and
was universally popular. As the news
spread the most intense excitement was
produced, and people flocked by scores
to tbe scene of tbe tragedy. It was
known that Dr. Settle and Mr. Foster
left tbe town together late in the after
noon. TbeT were intimate friends, and tl
was beyond belief that the latter could
have been the author of so foul a enm
He was not present when the boys found
the body : he had evidently gone home
after the tragedy. The two were seen
together only a short distance from where
tha murdered man was discovered. Ihis
was a strange circumstance. HadDr.Set
tin been shot from the roadside it woulc
have been natural for Foster to either
remain with the body or give the alarm
Neither was done ; and the rajige of the
ball reodered it conclusive that tbe Doc
tor bad been shot by some one
on horseback. These facts anc
probabilities were hurriedly reviewed
by the excited populace, and it was re
solved to arrest FosteV. A civi
officer and posse arrested the suspected
man that night, finding him, we believe
at home. Tbe purport of his statement,
if he gave any, we have not learned. We
hope the examination will result in the
establishment of his innocence of the
terrible crime which circumstanciul evi
dence has traced to his door. He is an
old. esteemed citizen of the county. He
and Dr. Settle had been intimate friends
and neighbors for many years, and it was
known they had been much together that
day. Unless a quarrel originated near
the fatal spot, and the shooting was
done in a moment of excitement, there
could have been no possible motive for
the crime.
After Foster's arrest, the officers of the
Freedmen's Bureau claimed the prisoner,
and wrested him from the civil authori
ties. He was sent to Grenada, and after
wards returned to Sardis, where tbe case
is now undergoing examination.
Dr. Settle was an old resident of the
county, and very well known in this city.
He was quiet, inoffensive, and probably
did not have a personal enemy in the
world. He was one of the most genial
men we ever knew, never failing to make
a favorable impression upon all with
whom be came in contact

The Question of Paving Msluatieet
Its Preaent Phase.
The Board of Aldernn n met yesterday
afternoon to consider tbe following prop
osition, recently made by Messrs. For
rest, Mitchell 1 Co. :
' MsmpmiS, October t, 1SC7.
To tbe Ilunerabls Board of Mayor and Abler-
un '
Gentlemen: We beg respectfully to
represent to your honorable body that we
have completed Did Madison street,
from Charleston avenue to the bayeu
bridge; Jefferson street, from Forrest
street to the Charleston avenue (except
about fifty yards near the bridge); and
Charleston avenue, from the railroad
bridge to tbe intersection of Adams
(except about sixty feel); with tbe
Nicholson pavement being more than
one third of our contract, to be completed
in one year. This work has been done by
us in thirty working days, which leaves
us to complete Main street, ninety days.
The work just completed by us has cost
an outlay of ninety-five thousand dollars
($95,000) in cash ; for this work we have
received from the Mayor $138,000 in
paving bonds.
General Forrest recently visited Louis
ville, St Louis and New York for the
purpose of hypothecating the bonds, in
order to raise sutlicient money to push
on the work on Main street; but in con
sequence of tbe city having failed to pay
the past July interest, which, when we
offered bids for the pavement, we were
assured would be promptly met, together
with the large amount of interest past
due, amounting in trie aggregate, since
January. 1861, to nearly $300,000, he
found the credit so depreciated that it
was impossible to hypothecate the bonds
at any such price as would enable us to
proceed with the work of paving Main
street; therefore, until something is done
by tbe city to relieve her credit, it is im
possible to raise the money required to
carry on the work.
We have contracts for lumber and ma
terials to be delivered within the next
sixty days, sufficient to complete Main
street, bat, as lumber, tar, sand, gravel
and wages are all cash, we find ourselves
utterly unable to control the money ne
cessary to make such a large expendi
ture as would be required to pave Main
Btreet this winter, and receive for pay
the paving bonds, in the present low and
comparatively worthless condition of the
city's credit We are, however, anxious
to proceed with the work, provided it
meets the views of your honorable body
to so alter the present contract as to al
low the property holders on Main street
to pay us threo dollars and ninety-five
cents cash per square yard, and three
dollars and eighty-nine cents per square
yard on Desoto, Shelby, Beal and Pop
lar streets, upon tbe same terms and con
ditions as allowed Taylor, McUeanACo.,
nnder tbe contracts with the city for
similar work ; and we will agree to re
move the dirt at forty cents per surface
yard.
If these terms are granted us, we
pledge ourselves to proceed with the
work on Main street at once, and com
plete it within the time allowed us under
the contract Respectfully,
Forrest, Mitchell & Co.
Mimphib, Tsnn., Ootobor 10, lf7.
To the Hon. Board of Mayor and Aldermen :
Gentlemen: If the proposition sub
mitted to you yesterday is not accepted,
we propose to do that portion of the
work in front of the oity's property, and
all the intersections of streets, upon the
same conditions, and the same price per
square yard, that our present contract
calls for we taking the paving bonds of
the city for the same the city making
no charge for the engineering and
royalty for that portion of the work. -
Respectfully,
Forrest, Mitchell k Co.
The above had been referred to a
committee appointed in the executive
session held Wednesday afternoon, who
reported the following
Resolved, That the board decline to
accept the proposition made byrorrest
Mitchell & Co., under date of October 9,
1867.
On motion of Alderman Johnson, tbe
report of the committee was finally re'
ferred back with instructions to report to
the Board at a meeting to be held at four

At a m:etimi of the DiretLnis of the
Sniitlii'rii L'I'h Insurance Company, held
at their (illi.'n un (lie 3hh nf Sepiruiber,
I lie. following rt- tliitions mora unaui
tu' us'y a'kptc J :
Whereas, li has pleated a my.terious
I'rov deuce m remove suddenly from us
Mr. George W. McCarn, the first Presi
dent of the Company, and as we deem it
proper in view ot his official position and
influence, and his social relation with us
(the members of this body) that we should
pay just tribute to his memory by official
and public expression, to be perpetuated
.upon out-record, of tbe estimation in
which he was held and of the feelings
with which this melancholy event has'
affected us ; therefore,
Resolved, That, it is with great and
unaffected sorrow that we have to
record the death of our late President,
for he was equally esteemed in official
positions and endeared in social rela
tions. He was a leading spirit in tbe
formation of the Company, and under
the impress of bis genius, it has grown in
so short a period, in the face of all the
embarrassments of the times, into its
present gratifying position amongst Life
Insurance Companies. Ha was, in his
nature, a devoted man, and our Com
pany was a great object of his devotion.
A rare and happy combination of traits
formed bis character. In his bearing
there wos an equability of temper a
uniform, quiet gentleness a delicacy and
urbanity, indicating a kind and lovply
spirit which sweetly attracted all
who fell into much personal intercourse
with him, whilst be was truly of a self
reliant, firm and resolute spirit, full of
bold enterprise and unwearied diligence
and perseverance. His high integrity,
bis energy and constancy in business,
were our esteem and confidence; his
unselfish, genial and afiable spirit, won
onr affections. During his brief resi
dence amongst us, he was quietly and
unobtrusively, vbut sorely and steadily,
advancing to an enviable position in the
public esteem, and of publio usefulness,
when be was suddenly taken off in a
brief illness, in the prime of life and
manhood.
Resolved, That to the family of the
deceased we tender our heartfelt sympa
thy and condolence in the loss of one so
dear to them and to us ; and that the
Secretary present to them a copy of these
resolutions.
Resolved, That tbe Secretary furnish
the newspapers of tbe city with a copy of
these resolutions for publication.
