BI0BC BLOOD. A Plantor Cut to lMeooa by an Innirla(l Negro. Yesterday afternoon a few particulars of another bloody affair in the country reached the city. Mr. Benjamin Branch a planter, residing six miles out Hatchie bfcttom, bad in his employ negro known as Adam, to whom last year he rented piece of land, with th understanding that ho was to receive in payment a certain proportion of the crop. Saturday last the two mot to di vide the crop, mainly ' corn. It was measured in a wagon bed, at M Branch's stiggestit u ; but Adam was not satisfied, and commenced indulging i harsh words at the former expense. Not desiring any troublo, Mr. Branch procured a bushel basket and suggested that the corn be' measured that way, Adam rsfusid to assitii in tho measure mcnt, and seemed determined to disploasod, uo ' matter what method was proposed. Finally, Mr. Branch asked Adam what he intended doin about it The latter replied: I had an ax I'd show jou; I'd chop you d d bead off." Not knowing what the negro, now trembling with anger, might do under the excitement of the motnen Mr. Branch looked about for uomethin with which to defend himself. He stooped to pick up a billot of wood ; but before urising, Adam, who had been closely watching his movements, sud denly drew a butcher's knife aud sprat) upon him. lie plunged the weapon into Mr. Branch's side, tho blado ponctratin to and severing the kidneys. Not con tent with this, the black monster, with drawing the knife, again sank it to th hilt in his victim's body, the weapon thi time entering tho right sido below the ribs. Adam then disappeared, and Inter in tho day Mr. Branch woi found welter ing in gore. YeaterdayTie was still alive but no' hopes were entertained df hi recovery. This black monster was but practi cally asserting his "rights" in th manner pointed out to him by those white friends, who, to secure his politi cal support, are urging bim to every crime against Southern white man, There can be but little doubt that he re ceived his inspiration from some prowling agent of the Freedraen's Bu reau, or Radical politician seeking for negro votes. It is the chief vocation o these classes to embitter ignorant blacks against white men, and tho crimes by negroes with which the newspapers are filled, are but the legitimate results of their teachings. Thu Mayoealtt Question Facts vs Empty ' Assertions. Editors Ledger Touching the Mayoralty tha public hear a mass of general assertion and preciou little specific statement It may be all very well for your Second street cotem- porary to say " Mr. Lofland's adminis tration is a failure." That is a broad statement, and many, without a thought will echo, "certainly." But " why is it a failure; and ii eo, whose fault is it?' are questions thinking peoplo ask am writing in the interest of not Lof- land but fair play, and should like to have journals or correspondents making charges sustain them. If Mr. Lofland' administration is a failure, why ? Is i through his or the Board's incompe tency; or because neither could over come impossibilities ? Let somebody point out wherein the administration bus failed, and then demonstrate that Mr. Lofland or any one else could have pre vented the dimisters which befell the city. This done, a case can be made out Against Mr. Lofland. Otherwise bis ad ministration must stand as having uc coTnplished more for the public good in fifteen months than previous udmin titrations accomplished in half that many years. Mr. -Lofland devised two financial schemes, either of which, if given a chance, would have brought ciiy money to the green back standard. Because, through dif ferent influences, his efforts were ren dercd futile, are we to make bim the scapegoat for the failure and say: "Down with Lofland ?" No one elso in Mr. Lofland's place could have averted the calamities which have befallen the city. It may be just to censure Mr. Lofland because the Board of Aldermen in one instance, and the jealous inter ference of a banking organization in another, prevented the workings of a policy which would have rendered city warrants par, but I fail to see it It Mr, Lofland failed, give ns the fads and figures. Mere assertion is a fool's argu ment Maim Street, December 15, 1P67. Negroes and the Street Cars. Nq sooner had the announcement been made of the re passage of the "common car rier" law than Memphis darkies sought to avail themselves of its privileges The well known Bob Cburcb and a barber named Sam Ireland yesterday afternoon went aboard of car No. 21 as passengers. The conductor, Mr. Tom More, told them the car was reserved for white people. They insisted on entering, and were ejected from the platform. Church and Ireland then procured the arrest of the conductor on the charge of assault, and the case will be tied this afternoon. According to the law, as published by as yesterday, the conductor is liable to a fine of fiO for making any distinctions relative to color. The Hebrew Festival. The revi val for benevolent purpoees soon to be held by our Hebrew fellow citizens, promises tbe a fine affair. The ladies are unresting themselves in tbe project, and wui a the fair sex put their hands ogether for the accomplishment of good. failure is simp'y impossible.

Till after the holidays oar store will bs open till 9 p.m. ELSO" BROTHERS, S3 S97 Main street One of the nicest and best saloons in the city has just been fitted up at No. 280 Main street, by "Loo," late of the "Capitol," and "Ed," late of Harry Weaiherbee's. This is a cozy little place, where those who "indulge" can find some of the best wines, liquors, ales, etc., to be obtained anywhere. Tbe proprietors are well and favorably knowa their business, and all patronizing them may rely oa what they sell being exactly what it is represented. Give them a call. Till after tho holidays, and to glvs dditlonal opportunities to attend oar great doming sals, oar stors will be kopt open till 9 p.m. ELSOM BROS., I 297 Main street. Tberi are still several building lots to be teld ia the Meath subdivision, and they will be pot np to tbe highest bidder to-morrow (Wednesday) morning, at 11 'clock. These being the last of the subdivision, they will be sold regardless of the price bid ; and those who have urchated heretofore, and have not losed op, are hereby notified that they II be required t call at once at the fT.ee of the auctioneer, and close np their purchases. Yon ran have yonr li;ht bats dyed the new color (coffee brows) at SCI Second street 106 1 New Memphis Theater. Mr. Frank Mayo coming unheralded, the large an dience witnessing Lis debut last ttigli cannot ho attributed so much to an recognition of his merits as gratification at the revival of the legitimate drama, Months of sensations, vaudeville an minstrelsy have rendered the publi anxious for the1 substitution of some thing not wholly dependent upon scenic or mechanical effect, banjo playing or jig dancing for interest Happily, Mr. Mayo hos been found one worthy to effect this change. His " Hamlet " sus tained the praisn bestowed by Eastern critics, and stamped him as a actor of undoubted merit In "rank up" ho whs fii.e, possessing tl figure deemed rssemiul to the prope appearance of the character nnd bein properly nttind. His elocution in the main isgor.d, tho enunciation being clear and distinct At liities, however, he suffers his voice to run inio monotones, and at other is apt, f.ir a few moments togother, to hurry thmu'i his lengths. Although we never could ngrre with the decision the generally accepted masterpiece of "Hamlet" is the "soliloquy." Those whose memory of the pluy is this scene were disappointed last night; for, un doubtedly it was inferior to any other speech uttered by Mr. Mayo during th eveuing. It was not "Hamlet" moralizing unon his own feelings, hut a recitation of some one else's text But it was only in this that he was inferior. Elsewhere h arose with the occasion, and as a whole lurnishod an intolloclual treat which could not fail to afford doligbt .We re gret that lack of time prevents us from enlarging upon other features of the rendition, Mr. Anderson -as "King Mr. Frnnce as " First Pluyer," Mrs. Al lea as " Ophelia," Mr. Ellerton as tho " First Grave Digger," and Mr. Waldron bs "Horatio," were very good. (The latter is a recent accession to tbe com pany a good actor who will scarcely fail to please. His wife, who appeared as one of the "Players," possesses th advantage of a fine figure, beautiful face and graceful manners. She had little to do. but did that little well. Mr. Rocho's "Ghost" was not a success, He seemed in every way unsuited to the part, his voice ruining tho personation as usual. This evening we are to have the Marble Heart, with Jlr. Moyo as " Raphael" aud " Phidias," Mrs. Allen as " Marco " and Mr. France as Ducha let." It will be a splendid performance, aud should attract a larga audience. Onon till Bum. Great Bargains. Wo defy competition. EL30N BR0THIR3, Si 897 Main street, Planter Victimized Out or $300- A planter from Hardeman county, Mr, William A. Moore, who hud sold his cotton in tbe city for f 2'J0, was met at the Charleston depot, yesterday evening, by a man who entered into conversation with him, and claimed to be acquainted with several of Mr. Moore's neighbors, Soon afterward the two started toward the city to obtain something to eat On the way another man came up, who informed Mr. Moore's " friend " that all the goods but one wagon load had just been delivered at tbe depot but that -$300 must be paid on the last load. "Friend" didn't know what to do; "had a check for $1170 on Desoto bank, but it wrs after hours. By the way, would Mr. Moore advance $300 on the check ? Mr. Moore did so with pleasare, and then, at "friend's" request, watched " friend's " trunks ifhtil Jhe latter could settle his business. Of course the check was bogus; but before Mr. Moore could realize tho fact the sharpers were beyoud reach. Tbis game was thought exploded many years ago, nnd newspapers have a thousand times exposed it; but to no purpose, it seems. M. Krads 4 Co., No. 218 Main street, have brought from their wholesale to their retail department a largo lot of new goods, which must be sold immediately regardless of cost or valiin. Tub Temperance Fair. Iho tcm peranco fair commenced last night and was well attended. The tables fairly groaned beneath the weight of the various. articles to be disposed of, aud the ladies certainly deserve no little credit for the taste with which everything inside tbe hall is arranged. Among the articles to be voted for are the following: Gold headed cane to the most popular candi date for Mayor; elegant 'set of single, gold-mounted harness, wdrth $150, to the most popular livery stable keeper; fine silver tea-set for the most popular dry goods merchant; elegant silver-mounted bat for tbe most popular base ball club; fine silver watch for the most popular Bank Teller; beautiful and appropriate medal for the best manufacturer of candies in Memphis; fine gold pen for the favorite B ink Teller. These contests Lwill materially add to the. interest, of the fair, aod the friends of the different favorites should exert themselves for the victory. Thi fair is held in behalf of a good cause, which should commend it to the favorable consideration of every one. We hope it will be liberally patronized. The door will be open at an early hour this evening. Oar stock is ottered at New Totk cost. Call and sea. HOWELL, WO 3D & CO., 93 332 Main stiset. Memphis Steam Lacndry. Mr. Wm. 0.
