Railroad Slaughters Who's to Blame 1 Editors Ledger : There is now lying in one of our machine shops (Chickasaw foundry, of Randle & Heath, I believe), and has been for many months, a self-attaching and self-detaching car coupling, invented by a most worthy Memphis mechanic (W. L. Belt), who is now as loyal a citizen in the triumphs of peace as he was a true soldier under the Confederate, flag in the trials of war. This ingenious device, which promises to put a stop to railroad slaughters, and made at great cost and trouble, has been offered to more than one railroad official free of charge, to test and prove without risk, trouble or expense ; and yet there it lies ruBting, and will thus continue before the inventor will ever again ask them to try it, as his modesty and independence are equaled only by his genius and pa triotism, I write this without the know! edge of Mr. Belt or any one else, and am alone responsible. 'Now, who's to blame for our many railroad disasters of late ? I ask you and all interested and who is not ? to call as above directed and ex amine for yourselves this, I think, very important and valuable contrivance. It is covered by caveat If we turn a deaf ear to all improvements, claimed as such by their projectors, and regard them as innovations or cunning devices to get money because nine out of ten fail of practical utility, we would all be now traveling in ox carts, and there would be no railroad harvests for said officials. Respectfully, S. S- Rembert. Meeting of Railroad Officers. Yesterday a meeting of railroad officers representing the various Southern lines, convened at the Overton. The names of those in attendance are as follows: Albert Fink, General Superintendent Memphis and Louisville line; Sam. B. Jones, Su perintendent Memphis division ; W. B.

Tate, President Memphis and Charleston rail road ; W. J. Ross, General Superintend ent Memphis and Charleston railroad; A. A. Barnes, General Ticket Agent Memphis and Charleston railroad, and A. S.

Powers, and now ready for (he recep lion of criminals, and have made the fol lowing report: Mimpmis, Trim., Fsbruary 18, 1H6& We, the Grand Jury of the January Term of the Circuit Court of Shelby county, make the following report as to the condition of the new and old jails: The Grand Jury, on the 14th dsy ot Feb ruary, 1HC8. proceeded in a body to the new jail nf Hhelhy county, where they were met br Mr. Powers, Contrastor, Mr, Cook. Architect and wilh them made a thorounh examination of the build log. We found the main and adjacent buildings finished, and report them' to be the most complete and best eooitruotea bui dines for beauty ol design strenuth, durability and ventilation of any that it has been our duty to ex amine. It would be a needless and use less task for us to give a detailed de scription of its advantages over all other buildings that it has been our pleasure to visit We would advise all citnen who are interested in our publio institu tions to visit and make an examination of the new jail. Mr. J. J. Powers, the contractor, deserves special notice at onr hands for the untiring energy witn which he has prosecuted this work under the most difficult and trying circumstances. After, thoroughly examining ttie new jail, we inspected the old one, which was louna 10 oe very insecure ana in m uuuj condition. All of which is respectfully submitted. C K. Kooers, C. M. Carroll, J. D. Drew, J, C. Green, Committee RDDointed to report The above report was unanimously adonted bv the Grand Jury. witA th request that the city papers publish the same, aim. m. uoi.kman, . Foreman of the Grand Jury, The jail is a certainly fine structure, which reflects great credit upon Mr. Powers, the builder, and Mr. J. B. Cook, 'the architect A Wonderful Equestrian. By far the best female equestrian who ever per formed here, or perhaps in the country, is little Miss Cordelia, of John Robin son's circus. She is a mere child of twelve, and has been only a little more than a year in the ring; yet her eques trian feats are performed with an ease, abandon and daring wonderful not only in one so young, but seldom attained by male veterans in the profession. There is little performed on the naked back of a horse going at full speed by that most gifted of riders, James Robinson that she does ,not perform. Leaping iver banners and through balloons, and executing the most dangerous pirouettes with horse at full speed, seem as easily accomplished as standing upright. The only feat (save bis hurdle act) performed by that world's wonder, James Robinson which she does not successfully attempt, is that ' of throwing sum mersaults. hven these sue is prac ticing, and, donning male attire, will in due time perform. It may not Drove uninteresting to our readers to learn that this remarkable child is a na tive of Tennessee, and resided in the State with her parents until a short Deriod before the close of the war. - The family now reside in Lexington, Ky. and upward of a year ago, attracting the attention of Robinson, she was adopted by him with the view of being brought out as an equestrian. Should no mishap befall her, a few years more will cause her to rank with that greatest of male equestrians James Robinson, v .. Colored Conservative Meetino. A meeting of colored Conservatives was held in the Criminal Court room last night. John Chandler was chosen Presi dent, and Fred. Bruce, Secretary. The following resolutions were adopted : Whereas. As we nave lived as free' men for three years, and have witnessed the various meanderings of our condi tion, and find that so far as being free agents for ourselves we aresatisued, and have received all the encouragement from our southern white iriends calcu lated to improve and elevate us to perform our duties as freemen, for which we are gratified, and shall ever be true to what we conceive to be the best interest of our race and our common country; and as the white race has governed all Chriatiau countries, by winch all colors nave been best benefit' ted, we accord to them tha honor of the improvement of our condition ; therefor, Jtesolved, That we pledge ourselves to support the Conservative ticket which bas been presented to us lor county out cers. Resolved, That we earnestly call upon all our colored mends to aid us, as we believe tbat the establishment of the Conservative principles is to the best in terests of the country. Resolved, That we ask no more of the white race than has been provided for us by law, only their assistance to carry out the laws, and we pledge oursolves to stand by them. Respectfully submitted, Bvrlet Mitcbel, Jackson Jones, James Welch, t Maringo Johnson, , Eli Guass. 1 How Registration Progresses.

Notice. There will be a meeting of the members of the Memphis Club at their ball this evening, at 7 o'clock, Every member is requested to attend, as business of importance will be brought before the meeting. By order of the President ' Tue Renikit To-Morsow Afternoon, As has been already announced thegroBS receipts of (he performance of John Robinson's circus to-morrow afternoon will be devoted to the cause of charity, The money will be placed in the band of those controlling the Church Home a charitable institution organised by Right Rev. Bishop Quintard, and now in successful operation. But only a por tion of the proceeds will be applied to. that object- The ladies who will receive the money, Mrs. W. S. Pickett and Mrs. D. K. McCrea, will transfer portions of it to any worthy object in need that may be presented. The names of the ladies in .question are a guarantee that the money will be 'disposed where it can re lieve tbo greatest amount of suffering. We hope our citizens will turn out en masse, and swell the receipts to the highest possible . figure. The sum of $1500 or $2000, properly disposed, can relieve the necessities of a large number of tbo poor and destitute. Fluts Accident A Remedy. We understand that by nnavoidable accident at tbe New Momphis Theater last night, Mr. Henry Farmer's costly and beautiful flute was broken beyond remedy, by a side-scene falling on it. Tbe instrument thus unfortunately destroyed, was a gift to Mr. Farmer, as well as a testimonial of appreciation of his taste and culture as a flutist It is proposed by many of bis friends to replace this flute by one of the same description, to be purchased by the proceeds of a concert, to be given for tbat purpose. We like the suggestion and hope it will be acted upon. Mr. Farmer deserves such a testimonial. The A owe Barber Shop has been re moved next door to the old stand, corner of Court and Main streets, in Bethell Block, prices being reduced to 10 cents for a shave, 25 cents for haircutting, and 25 cents for shampooing.
