Editors Ledger: Will you please correot a state ment, in your paper of Wednesday evening, in regard to the tragic end of the late Edwin H. Dashiell, Jr.? The deceased was set a yuuug man of disso lute habits. He resided with his parents, was in somewhat delicate health; a young man of the most amiable disposi tion, and a great comfort to his now deeply afflicted relatives. There had been no "violent altercation" between him and his unhappy father. The many friends of the family cannot but regret exceedingly that this additional pang should have been inflicted through the inadvertance of your reporter. Very faithfully, R. A. S.

The investigation of the case of John Cos grove, charged with having fired the fatal shot at Thomas Malone, in the Criminal Court room taat Fridar, has occupied the attention of Esquire Moore's court two days, during which time many witnesses were examined. Without ar riving at any conclusion yesterday after noon, the taaa was coLtinaed until Sat urday, the prisoner meanwhile being released oa f 5000 bail. Tbi Late ExfreisRoriert at Dres den. Io the published accounts of the arrest of the man who recently robbed the safe of the 8outhrrn Express Com pany at Dresden, Tenn., have, by ap aot of omission, done injustice to the officer who was solely Instrumental in accom plishing tha capture of the robber. It seems that the guilty party reached Louisville in advance of any information restive to the crime. He was rooghly dressed, and bore every appearance of one belonging to the laboring class. At the Louisville Hotel be was seen by Capt. Bligh, of the detective force of that city, who, with an eye to everything passing, was surprised to see a man of that class and in that garb registered at a first-class hotel. The fact led him to notice the man carefully, aod his attention was more olosely drawn shortly afterward by the fact that the object of his solicitude showed quite a sum of money in making change for something. Captain Bligh now suspected that the stranger was not " all right," and learned that be had just arrived from the South. After supper the stranger left the hotel, Bligh follow ing at a convenient distance. He traced him into several saloons and places of amusements, and observed that at each money was lavished recklessly. The next morning he learned that The same individual had expressed f 1400 to some one in Philadelphia. Captain Bligh was now positive in bis own mind that he bad been watching a rogue, and determined to arrest him, satisfied information would soon arrive of some robbery. He ac cordingly nabbed the rough-looking spendthrift, and telegraphed over the lines to ascertain whether a robbery bad been committed. About the time the prisoner's attorney was preparing to ef fect a release on a writ of habeai eorpui Capt. Bligh was notified that the office of the Southern Express Compony at Dresden had been robbed. He at once telegraphed that he had caught a man who was doubtless the robber. This put a quietus on the habeas eorpu proceed ings, and the following day a requsttion arrived from Gov. Brownlow. The Cap tain Barmore mentioned in the accounts already given, is the officer to whom the prisoner was surrendered, but the credit of the whole affair is due Capt Bligh, whose anxioty to serve the ends of jus tice led him to arrest a man on suspi cion of a crime of which he bad not even heard, oonfident from his knowledge of human nature that the rough customer encountered at the hotel was a fugitive from justice. This affair greatly re dounds to the credit of Capt. Bligb, whom we understand to be as honest as he is shrewd and vigilant , amimeme-nts. New Memphis Theater Deb Frei 8CHUETZ.--The popular opera of Dtr Freischuetz was presented to a large au dience last night, among whom the Ger man element was largely represented. Maria Frederici, as "Agatha," fullj sus tained the fine reputation previously achieved. It is difficult to decide whether her sweet, correct singing or artistic act ing was most admired. Sophie Duil)a was quite charming as"Annchen ;" Him raer rendered the part of " Max " splen didly, and Weinlich obtained much op nlause bv his carjital personation of " Caspar " This evening Mozart's Magie Flute will be given.

Thr Late Serious Accident to the Indiana. The Vicfisburg Times, of the 29th, furnishes the following particulars of the accident to the steamer Indiana in Terrapin Neck: "At 3 o'clock yester day morning, while coming through the chute at Terrapin Neck, the Indiana struck some submarine obstruction, sup posed to be a sunken log, and after lurching forward on it as far as her boil ers, came to a stop. Capt. R. E. Neal, her commander, immediately resorted to all the means his experience and skill could suggest to relieve his boat from her precarious situation, but failing to ac complish this by the ordinary means, he ordered the mate to throw a portion of the cargo overboard. It was discovered that the fore-and-aft hog chain had parted, however, letting her head drop some four or five feet out of line, and it is scarcely presumed that anything can be done to save her. The Indiana was one of the most successful steamboats ever built, and would have been four years old this spring. She was principally owned by the brothers J. Stot aod Reuben E. Neal, and made enough money in three years to build the great Richmond. She cost something like $140,000 new, and was in splendid condition up to the time of her recent misfortuqe.' To what amount she is insured we are not able to state." A Fine Stork oft lothlna; will be ex etiana;ed for Improved city property. 277 Matin atreet. 117-12J Law Court Rules.

Yes- lerJay morning a euuple of rough look ing men, with buahy whiskers (believed to ba fulael. entered Ilia riremises at 219 Poplar street, and dumsnded breakfast, asserting that they would be d i if tbey couldn't get a meal anywhere. The lady of. the house bastened to comply, and after ratine like gourmands, tha two fel lows left About 11 o'clock last night tha same men repaired te the negro quarters attached to the house, and in quired or a negro woman " now many men were in the main building." The woman replied that there were two, and fearing tha intruders meant mischief, started toward the bouse. One of the man rouffhlv cauubt her by the arm. . - - struck her with a stick, and threatened to kill ber if she went This did not pre vent her from screaming "murder," which she did quite lustily. The cry brought one of the male occupants ot the house to the door who, perceiving the condition of affairs, hurriedly ran back after a pistol. Meanwhile, the robbers for such they undoubtedly were as hur riedly left, after flinging an ax with a crash through the dining-room window. Unfortunately they were beyond reach before the gentleman could return with his weapon, and the coroner was cut out of a fee. The Mechanics' Meetino Editort Ledger : If Mr. McDavitt, Mayor pro tent-, will call upon the mechanics of the city of Memphis to; assemble on Wednes day next, I hope he will have the pleas ure to see that he has struck the right cord. He will be among the true work ing bees of the Memphis hive the pro ducers. Tbey will come to his aid ; and he is the man to stir them. They are hard to move, from the fact that officials, bankers, merchants and property hold erty elbow them out, or give them the cold shoulder, if they don't keep at the proper distance from them. I understand there is to be a rousing meeting on Union street to-night I would say to Mr. McDavitt and others to try, if possible, to be with us ; and if you come, we pan in all probability call the city question up first, while the other great question of sure remuneration for our labor, skill and material or capital will follow, under the head of the ' Lien Law." And now, Mr. Ledger, make this ring through Hhe city, stir up the people, and, with God's blessing, we can make our consciences, and not our pockets, (he chamber of justice.
