Tbe Doctor, both in point of ability and use fulness, has had no superior in the pul pits of the city, and has enjoyed the on boaoZzd esteem of all whe have known him. We regrt exceedingly the neces sity that compels his resignation.

We had be. spoken acrowdi d house on tho occasion of Mrs, Allen'i benefit hut were mis taken; should we havef'irenamed an en thusiaatio one we should have been more prophetio. The compliment was a most handsome one in every respect save numbers, and had a more fashionable night been selected, this exception doubtless would not have occurred. Tbe programme of the occasion was well put o the stage, and the highly artistio beneficiary appeared to greater advantage than we have evw seen her, in the thrilling character of " Lu cretia Borgia," in the tragedy of that name. She also mado a happy im pression in the Bough Diamond and was very fairly supportod in both pieces by tbe company? Between pieoes a slight deviation was made from the bills, and the fair beneficiary was called on to assume a part she had not studied. At the close of tbe last act of the tragedy, in response to repeated and continuous calls, she appeared before the curtain ith Mr. Kocbe, and was in the act of retiring when Judge Mariana u rermns, rising from bis seat in the dress circle near tbe proscenium, and holding an open casket in his band, addressed the bene ficiary in the following language : Mrs. Ai.lin: Your friends and ad mirers in Memnhis cannot allow this oc casion to pass without further token of their appreciation of your merits as a representative of the dramatio art, as well as your many admirable qualities in private life, and it is therefor I ask on behalf of the citizens of Memphis your acceptance of this slight testimonial a Lwatcb and cbain. The stagehas become indispensable to society; trom it we learn etiquette, manners; it has a re fining influence on mankind; it is as a great book of human nature, and from it we oaten the loftier sentiments of the soul. It upholds virtue, troth, justice, and denounces all that is base and low. Through it we hold communion with the great and good of all ages, and such is the profession, madam, of which you are a most worthy member, and as suchynu have become endeared to our people, in presenting you, then, with this token of esteem and aoDreoialion on the part of the citizens of Memphis, I. would express the hope that this watch may never mark an unhappy hour in your lil'i;, that this chain will be as links in pleasant memo ries of Memphis, if called elsewhere in the pursuit of the profession which you adorn. A burst of applause followed tbe Judge's remarks, and when quiet was again restored, Mrs. Allen responded in the most graceful manner to this effect: Sib : What shall I say on this occasion ? How shall I thank you and the many kind friends who have presented me with this most valuable token of their respect and esteem ? Words fail me to fully express my feelings, but I can assure you that I feel the compliment you have pais me in my ue&ri ui uemie, nuu i. registered in my heart's core. I am truly grateful for the handsome testi monial of your regara wnicn you naye to nioht nreaented to me. and I sincerely aek you to tender to my friends nTy sincere thanks lor this valuable present, i assure you, sir, that I shall at all times, and at all seasons, fully appreciate the kindness of the people of Memphis, which they have so substantially evinced through you this evening. I shall at all times mark: this evening as a Dngm epoca ia my life, and when I may be many miles from the growing and prosperous pity of Memphis, I will think with pleasure and with eladness of tbe bright token of es teem and regard they presented to me on tnis, ine occasion oi uiy urei. urucu. Sir, allow me, through you, to again ten der my sincere thanks to the citizens of Memphis, and I can now only say "good night," and God bless you all. With this anknowledement, Mrs. Allen retired amid prolonged applause bearing jyith her her handsome and really valua ble pouyepiir pf the evening a watch sod chain, the former elegantly set with diamonds, and bearing thp following in scription ! Presented to Mrs. D. R. Allen from her Memphis friends, March 19, 1868. Ta-night 'will be tendered a joint benefit to little Katie Gilbert and the Leath Orphan, Asylum, on which occasion an excellent bill will be pre sented, consisting of the " Little Treas ure " and the "Spoiled Child," with little Katie in both fieoes. Mr, L. S. McCarthy will also sing between pieces "One Pound Two." It being the fashionable night the attendance will doubtless be large. The Yawl-ties. Charley White s benefit last evening was a bumper, and a handsome attestation of the favorable light in which that gentleman is regarded by the numerous frequenters of this re sort An excellent programme is ottered for this evening, introducing Misses Kent, DeVere. Wheeler, Whiting, De Forrest, the Gilmore sisters and others of the company, in pleasing songs, danees and burletta- The house will, of course, be crowded, , TERRIFIC BOILER EXPLOSION. Three Men Instantly Killed. f- We learn from a gentleman who reached the city this morning, by the Memphis and Louisville railroad, that a boiler in tbe steam mill of Colonel Keal Shaw, at Brownsville, exploded yester day morning while tbe mill was in ope ration, and that three persons at work in the building at the time were instantly killed. The names of the killed our informant did nc b?Wt 'PP0ie one of lnenl to have be.n Mack Shaw, a son of the Colonel, who was working ia the build ing. The report of the explosion, he says, was terTifie and heard distinctly for miles around. That portion of the mill in which the boiler was located was en tirely demolished.

OUTRAGE IN THE COl'NTRT. llriiTjr slobbery at Collier- Tllle-ftUOO ilolen. An Invalid Clerk bound baud and foot and nearly PerUhei. The little town of Collierville, on the Memphis and Charleston railroad, was the scene, durisg Tuesday night, of an outrage which caused tbe greatest ex citement among the citizens of that usually quiet community. During the night in question the store of J. C. Mur daugh, Esq., was entered by burglars and an extensive robbery of money and goods effected. Tbe burglars, by placisg a ladder np to a window in tbe second story and prising open a heavy wooden blind, managed to get into the building undis covered. Mr. A. C. Wilson, a clerk in the employ of Mr. Murdaugb, prostrasted by sickness at the time, was sleeping be low, and the robbers, upon making their way to bii apartment, tied him fast to tbe bed with ropes, and imposed silence nnder threats of taking his life. There being three of the gang, one of them remained with Mr. Wilson with a pistol leveled at his bead, while the other two proceeded to consummate their ne farious designs. Tbey first repaired to the safe in the front part of the store, and by using a heavy iron bar brought along for tbe purpoie.lhey succeeded in forcing the locks and appropriated $400 in money, and a large amount of notes, checks and other valuable papers. This done, they next proceeded to load them selves with the most valuable goods they could diecover.taking jewelry, pistols and other articles to the value of about five handred dollars. Having thus accom plished their object they returned cau tiously to tbe second story, descended the ladder and made off with their booty without raising the suspicions of any one except Mr. Wilson, the clerk whom they had bound to his bed and who was compelled to remain in that condition until morning, Buffering the greatest pain from the cords which were cutting deep into bis wrists find ankles. Such was his suffering indeed before he was dis covered, that when Mr. Murdaugb. came to his relief the next morning, he was nearly insensible, and doubtless if not timely relieved would have died. Upon recovering sufficiently to speak he gave a full account of the affair so far as he was able, but was unable to give any de scription of tbe scoundrels which might lead to their identification, They had taken the precaution, as would seem from his statement, to disguise them selves by blacking their faces and turn ing their coals inside out The affair is still tbe occasion of much excitement in the little town, and fears are entertained that the Bame party are still in the neigh borhood, and may at any time repeat the outrage. ' C0NTE3IPT. The AvIancbc Cuaetj in the Municipal Court. The cases of Colonel Gallawoy, of tbe Avalanche, and Mr. J. M. Campbell, late of that paper, upon an application for a habeas corpus before Judge Wal- dran, was taken up again in the Munici pal Court at nine o'clock this morning. Mr. Griffin having finished his argu ment in defense of the course of Judge Hunter last evening, Major Edward A. Beecber opened the argument rbr the defense, and spoke nearly two hours, presenting the strong points in the case in a forcible and elo quent manner, and quite demolishing the position assumed by tbe gentleman who preceded him. Hon. Landon C. Haynes, rUo of the counsel of Colonel M. C. Galiaway and Mr. J. M. Campbell, followed in a learned, forpible and finished argument, speaking up to two o'clock, at whiph hour Court ad journed. Mr, Jlullock will continue the argument to-morrow, and will be fol lowed by Messrs. Yerger and Sale. The Court room was again densely crowded this morning by the numerous friends of the defendants and members of the bar.

Old Hats made sew, 3S4 Main st 39 8uddbxt Dbate Coaovsa's Inquest, About five o'clock this morning, as Capt Simons, of the Metropolitan Police, was passing along Second street, on bis way to tho First District Station, be ducev ered lying in tbe doorway of one of the business bouse in tb Jefferson block, man whom be at first suppdied to be drunk, but who on further investigation he fuond lo be nearly dead with cold and exposure. Helping the stranger to his feet he then conducted lim to tbe station, where he learned that be had just been diachargej from the hospital, and not having sufficient money ia bis possession to pay for lodgings be bad slept all night in the doorway where the Crptain bad discovered him. No sooner scarcely had he give this simple account of himself, as be was seated by the stove in the station-bouse, than he suddenly fell back in bis chair, made one or two inarticulate utterances a id died. His body was at once taken into another apartment baok ol the station, and upon searching his clothes tor some article by which he might bs identified, a bible and a memorandum-book were found in one of bis pockets, in tbe former of which was written "James Hughes," and in tbe latter " James Hughes k Co." Nothing that could lead to a further identification was found, and it is supposed that he was a stranger in the city. At a later hour in the morning Esq. Glisson, summoning a coroner's jury, proceeded to hold ao inquest on the body, and a verdict was rendered in accordance with the above facts. The appearance of the deceased would indicate that be had once known much better days, while the writing in the memorandum-book and on a fly-leaf of the Bible is in a plain, clerkly hand. Potter's.
