James Creigliton and John Reagan are on trial at Jackson for tho alleged robbery of tho Southern Express office at that place. Henry McDonald, who shot another negro named Taylor, on Sunday, was yesterday committed by Esq. Miller for trial in the Criminal Court, in dofault of $1000 bail. An unsophisticated countryman named Dutterfiold was beaten out of $150 by tho lock gamo near tho race track yesterday. It is timo pooplo wore learning to give such games a wide berth. Four of tho watches recently stolen from Mr. Noel's jewelry store, have been recovered In St. Louis. They were found at a pawnbroker's shop. Two men have been arrested for alleged com plicity in the robbery. Mr. Wm. Jackson, a saddler, fell from a window in tho Green Trca House yesterday, and was killed. He was in the employ of Messrs. Moores, Smith k Co., thirty-five years old, a native of Canada, and unmarried. Jo Locke, 22 Jefferson street, has Godey's Lady Book for Decembor, also Peterson's Magazine, Harper's Bazaar of Fashion for the 23d, London News, La Crosse Democrat, Chimney Corner, Wilkes' Spirit of the Times, Waverley Magazine, Southern Society, Army and Navy Journal, Saturday Mercury, Pleas ant Hours for December, Budget of Fun and the Phunny Pbellow ; also keeps on hand books, stationery, etc., etc. Give him a call. Punch, all the way from Fleet street, London, is in town. He is staying at Emmons & Son's, No. 10 Jefferson street, where all who choose to call can make his comical acquaintance. The popular Yankee Wanderer, a funny joker, is with him. EmmonsAi Son have received the Chimney Corner, Wilkes' Spirit, St. Louis Democrat and Republican, Cin cinnati Commercial, Louisville Courier, Chicago Times and Tribune, Scientific American and New York Journal of Commerce. "AFfticA" ok the Street Cars. "Af rica" lost no time in asserting himself on the street cars after the passage of the new-fangled common-carrier law. Beforo the employes of the company had learned of the passage of the enactment, the Brownlow anointed bounced on the cars in scores. Some were modest enough to remain on the platforms, but others boldly entered the car and sealed them selves in solemn grandeur besido white pcoplo. Next to voting.riding in the street cars with whites was the greatest boon yet conferred. It overshadowed free barbe cues and "spouting"at political meetings. The other day one of this class entered a Hernando street car, and after looking about' a moment, passed several vacant places and deliberately seated himself beside a young lady. She at once left the car, and the impudent rascal seemed very much ofTended at the indignity put upon his black highness. The conductor feared the responsibility of ejecting one who had been specially legislated into the car, but a passenger who wit nessed the afTair, did not stand upon such nice distinctions. He told Cuffee to "git," or take the consequences involved in a few blows from a tough-looking cane. Hero little Smith's law failed exit "Africa" through the door at a slashing paqp. Why this "atrocious rebel outrage" upon a "respectakle colored citizen" has not already been blazoned in the papers, and formed the subject of immense wood cuts in the illustrated journals, we cannot conceive. So flagrant a crime should have been telegraphed to tho artists of Harper and the JVce Gatettt at once. Thiuk of it! for merely edging up to a white lady because he preferred to do so rathf r than sit with male "white trash" an odoriferous representative of the class boot-licked by little Smith, Blewig, Beecher, Hunter & Co., is threatened with blows! This is terrible, and we recommend an extra session of the Loyal League in connection with the matter. True, Bwis, 1'H'P Smith, nuntcr, Beecher k Co. will not allow their female relations to sit with the " colored cuss from Africa," but that is no reason why " secceh " should turn op their noses at his fragrance. Of course not ; but what rights have tho " seccsh " in communities governed by tho benefi cent Brownlow, Federal deserters and the carrios-crcy who followed the army? None that ace nisiol ilaFS this way. Grand Kaffi.. Posit!iy lomglt at 11 o'clock, for Mr. C. Ccsti'.lo'i private turnout the very fiurst in the city at the What Cbr saloon, corner Madison and Second streets. THE RICES. Thlril lhiy unlit' l ull Mi-t linn Over (ho MonipliU C'onrxe. Our turfmen have little reason to com plain of the weather which thus far has prevailed during the week. A genial atmosphere and clear sunshine have greeted them each day, leaving nothing undone on Nature's part to render the occasion a fine success. The attendance yesterday was aa large at on the pre vious day, notwithstanding the published fact that only one race would be con tested. TBI FIRST RAl'l was for the Citizens' purse of $300, two mile heats, free for all ages. The entries were : L Lepaul, b h Counterproof, 4 yean old, by Colossus, dam by imp Hooton. Drrss blue and blue. Turner & Johnson, ch o Chickamauga, 4 years old, by Jack Malone, dam Albonie, by imp Albion. Dress white, red and black. E. A. Smith,- gr f Nelly Gwynne, 5 years nld, by imp Bonnie Scotland, dura Gray Alice, by Chorcster. Drees blue and white. Finl Ileal Counterproof was the favorite, having the odds in tho pool sell ing, but the grey filly also had many friends and backers who believed in her 6pecd and bottom. At tho tnp of the drum, away they went, the bay horse slightly in tho lead, and winning tho inside When reaching the quarter pole, Counterproof still ahead, Nolly Gwynne, until this timo behind, shot by Chicka mauga, and did some capital running, which suddenly revived the hopes of ber friends that she would win the heat But tho bBy could nob be overcome. lie maintained the lead throughout, making tho second mile in fine style, with two lengths to spare. Timo, 3:42. Second Heat The frionds of Coun terproof now offered three, four and as high as five to one, but takers were scarce. Tho ease with which he won the previous heat did not incline his oppo nents to any further risk, and some tried to hedge and get even. Thero were many, however, who believed in the filly, and felt confident she would spur tip and take the second heat. Chickamauga was conBidored practically out 'of the race. At the start Chickamauga got the lead, and kept it until reaching the half mile pole, Counterproof fattling away close at his heels. Here the bay horse shot ahead, and kept in the advance, making the first mile in 1:48 good time. During the second mile Chickamauga passed Nelly, and challengod the bay horse for a contest. At the three-quarter pole they were nearly abreast, but Counterproof could not be passed, and easily won the heat and race by four lengths over Chickamauga, the gray coming in some distance behind. Time, 3:44 an improvement on the previous day's running. Second Race. For the second raoe, As sociation Purse of $600. Three mile dash for all ages. There was only one entry, and Mary Wynne, four years old, cantered over the course and took down the money. to day's races. Three races appear in the calondar for this afternoon, and fine Bport may be anticipated. M. C. Costillo's bay filly is the favorite for the first race. Tho entries are as follows: First Race Lost stuke, $400. Entrance $:!0.' Mile heats.

Lotta drew another large audience last night, doubt less the largest thus far during her en gagement. She appeared in Captain Charlotte and Family Jars. The former, although dignified into two acts, is, as a whole, dull and point Irss. Lotta, as "Charlotto Clopier," findj little scope for the peculiar order of talent whose exercise has rendered her famous. Several members of the company were not perfect in the text, being repeatedly prompted, and the play dragged considerably. Family Jart told a different tale. Here Lotta had a better opportunity of illustrating her comic cowers. JJer " Liddy Larrigan," (a Biddy) was one of the most sprightly personations in which we have seen her. She gave the brogue lo the life, and her Irifh jig was encored three times, aa was also the banjo sola A more enthusias tic audience never before assembled within the walls; the little witch ob tained complete possession of them, and every acti' and word evoked the hearti est ohursls of applause. The time bill is up for thia erning. Fivi THfifSAJD tups plaid dress goods at thirty-five cents per yard, at M. Kraoi k Cat, No. 213 Main street, corner of Adams, t THELVfl! HIGHWAY EXPLOITS. Ncfotiil CliH(fror f lie Hick, ory Wythe l'ot A Hair The Ifobber Keen nutl Shot at. Io a receat itsue we published the particulars of tome highway robbery exploits in the vicinity otilickory Wythe depot, of a most startling character. Our account closed with the com mencement of a search (or the mem bers of the gang on Monday, by nearly all the ablo bodied men in tfie community. Information hat reachtd us that late in the afternoon, the robber who overhauled Mr. Greenleaf, at before alluded to, wat discovered in the woods by that gentleman and four others who accompanied him in the tearch. Mr. Greenleaf at once recognized the high wayman, and ordered him to halt. Mr, G. and hit friends were armed, and tho object of their search not obeying tho tummons, one of them shot at him. With marvelous coolness be returned the fire, halting until several ehnmbert of kit re volver had been discharged. Meanwhile Mr. Greenleaf and party fired a number of shots, none of which took effect and the daring rascal, after waiting a few moments longer, turned about and do liberatcly walked uway. Once beyond view, hurried footfalls were heard, run dering it evident that he was beating a hasty retreat for some place of security well known to him. Upon recovering from the astonishment his recklessness induced, the party started in the direo tion he hud taken; but no traco of him could bo found, and at nightfall tho search was abandoned. The name of thit knight of the road has not transpired, but in cool daring he is w.rtliy to be classed with Murrell or any other robbers of bygone times. When alona with Mr. Greenleaf he die played a recklessness of consequences simply astounding ; his action relative te the note forwarded to that gentleman was in keeping with bis previous dare' deviltry; and bis evident contempt for five armed men, each desirous of bring' ing him down, was the sublimity of cool daring. None of his accomplices had been overhauled at last accounts. i Drt Goods at astonishingly low prices at Lindauer, Arnold it Co.'s. Stock Stealing. During tho week several valuable milk cows have been stolen from citizens on Union street, and daily similar complaints reach ut from other portions of the city.
