The atten dance at the theater last evening on the occasion of Mr. Jefferson's last appear ance bnt one was an ovation in every sense of the word. The parquette was so crowded that many with tickets be low resorted to the. tiers in order to pro core seats, and the parquette aislos were thronged two abreast from proscenium to door. The attractive bill of Kip Van Winkle, with Mr. Jefferson in the lead ing role, which has drawn well during the entire week, brought ont a Friday house, fully in keeping with those of the lets fashionable evenings previous. Mr. Jefferson played, as he never fails to do, in a manner peculiar to his own geuins and happy con ception. We take occasion to reiterate our favorable notice also of Mrs. Allen, whose rendition of "Gretchen" in itself entitles her to the high reputation she already has npon these boards. Kip Tan Winkle will be presented for the last time this evening on the occasion of Mr. Jefferson's benefit, and if we are not much mistaken, will again fill the house from pit to dome. Te Varieties. Miss Kent, in her popular vocalisations, with Misses Del Ferrest, Whitney, DeVere, and the Gil more sisters, are drawing crowded houses to this favorite resort nightly, while by freqnent change of programme Manager Broom never fails to present new and pleasing features in each enter tainment. To bear either of life vocal ists mentioned is well worth the entrance fee; to hear all is quite irresistible. They are all on the bill again this even ing. Children of Israel s Concert. The lovers of musio will bear in mind the grand concert in aid of the Congregation of the Children of Israel, to be given at the Memphis Club Hall, on the evening of the 18th. Tickets should be secured early by those wishing to make certain of seats. Meeting or the Bar last Evenino. In pursuance of a numerously signed call, published in the Appeal and Led ger of yesterday, a meeting composed of some sixty of the most prominent mem bers of the bar of this city was held in the Circuit Court room last evening, with a viow to taking such action with regard to the arrest and imprisonment of the editors of the Avalanche by Judge Hun ter, of tbe Criminal Court, vs after due consideration should seem advisable and becoming the representatives of the legal profession. By a unanimous vote Col. D. K. McRea was called to the chair and Sam. P. Eose, Esq., appointed Secretary. After a statement of the object of the meeting by the chair, Gen. John Sale moved tbe appointment of a committee to draft and report suitable resolutions. To this several amendments were offered and freely discussed, when it was finally agreed that tbe committee appointed should make their report at a meeting, to be called by the chair' after the decision of Judge Waldran, in the pending appli cation for a habeas corpus, whereupon CoL McRea named the following gentle men to act npon the committee: CoL Wm. H. Stephens, CoL M. P. Jarnigan, Judge Geo. Dixon, Col. J. B. Heiskell and Gen. W. Y. C. Humes, vice Gen. Sale, who declined acting, on the ground of his being one of the counsel for Col. Gallaway. On motion of Hon. P. T. Scruggs, the chairman was added to the committee. Herenponthe meeting ad journed to meet again pursuant to a call of the chair. Burglaries. Burglars effected an en trance to the grocery store of T. S. Gonti, 73 Second street, last night, and stole upwards of five hundred ponnds of bacon, three boxes of chewinc tobacco, a bos of candles, and the greater portion of a barrel of flour. The lock of the door in the rear of the building; was picked and aa entrance thereby effected. About 9 o'clock last night, the salooa and confectionery of B. Barghetto, 69 Court street, was broken open and from fifty to seventy-five dollars' worth of cigars, tobacco aad oysters stolen. By what means the entrance was made is not known. Sr. Jobs' s M. E.

It is estimated that over fonr hun dred persons have left this city during the past week, for Omaha and other points in tbe 'Northwest ' '! The notion of Judge Waldran in the Avalanche comtempt cases was freely discussed on the streets last evening, and was the occasion of much favorable com ment. The Literary Album, Sporting News, Harper's, and a host of other fresh period ical and illustrated literature, can be fonnd on the counter of Joe Locke's news depot, 22 Jefferson street.

Tickets of admission, one dollar, the proceeds being very land ably devoted to defray tbe debt of St Patrick's Church. The Metropolitan Police uom mis sioned have started a charity fa-ad for the relief and bnrial of disabled and deceased members of the fovea. , The fund is to be raised by the appropriation of a certain per centage of the reward moneys to this object, which is certainly very worthy one. . . i Hon. J. W. Clapp, at the request, of the Executive Committee of the Memphis and Shelby county Bible Society, will repeat the eloquent address recently de livered on the anniversary of that society, at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, on Coort street to-morrow evening at half past seven o'clock. ' The 2Vw Eclectic is the name of a new magazine which we find on the counters of the news stands of the ity. The new serial, like its older namesake, is beautifully printed and made np of the very cream of English and American literature. The readers of tbe one will be equally delighted with the other. A warrant was issued by Esquire Walton this morning , for the arrest of Billy Johnson (colored), who some time since killed another negro named Scott, without the slightest provocation- John son is represented as a most desperate character, and has threatened the life of any one who may attempt bis arrest. The noisy auotion concern at east Main, near Madison, which for the past year or more has been " going, going, going," has at last " gone " to tbe square below. The "brawling fellows" will continue to regale the denizens of the latter locality with songs and funny saws, and, by way of variety, an occa sional broken-winded accordeon accom paniment. Officer John Gear, who was shot on Jefferson street by burglars last week, and whose leg was in consequence of tbe wound amputated, died yesterday morn ing and was followed to tbe grave in the evening by the entire night ferce of the First District, to which he belonged. Officer Gear was a courageous and dutiful patrolman, and his loss will be regretted, br all who knew him, and especially by his comrades, who held him in the highest esteem. At an early hour this morning, offi cers Sauerman and Maloney, of the Northern district, had their attention di reeled to a suspicious looking trio who were proceeding slowly through the alley between Overton and Jackson sbute, in a scalp wagon, with a fourth party keep ing in the advance evidently on the look out On seeing the officers the party in the vehicle gave the whip to their horse with a view to escaping, but on turning from the alley into Main street the wagon upset, and through this delay tbe natrolmen were enabled to overtake them, and make the arrest; which they did. On being taken to the station one of the party proved to be a soldier of the 25th U. S. infantry, named Mika Molen, while the remaining trio were readily recognized as Joe Edwards, Tom Byt n and Pat Trainer all well known to the police as burglars and general vaga bonds. They weVe therefore held and fined by tbe Commissioner this morn ing. Loot to it yon people of South. Mem phis and Hernando road 3. V.
