R Chalmers to tha Sir Knights, prior to tba commence ment of tbe lilting: ( Ton.vo GcifLtMH: You have ap peered as knights of this tournament to contribute, by your graceful horseman skip and skillful bearing of the lance, to tba support and maintenance of the wid ow! and orphan wbo have been mad aueuby the lata civil war. I . It would be a mockery, and would eive occasion to ridicule, if I should com nare tou to tbe kniirhts of ancient cnivairy, wdo mvi in iud ucnui bhus glc of the tournament of the middle aites, or to tba gladiutort of aucient liome, who slow each otbor in tbe arena l : I l . .1.. J...L for the amusement ot tbe multitude. -Indeed, our enemies hare already made merrr over these mimio tourna ments of tbe South, and have attempted to bring ridicule upon us for' indulging ia jousts so free from peril. ? It is true that your lances are not barbed with tbe polished steel, and that your steadied aim is not directed against the breast of vo'nr. fellow-man. and that your exercises of to-day are not marked with any of tbe emblems ot a martial array. But loose wno sneer at your peaceful tournament should remember that they have forbid to us tbe exercise of any more military display. Our uni form have been tabooed by military orders, and even the use of bras button by us is tbe occasion of nervous excite ment. Like tbe Helots of Xireece, we are aot permitted to indulge in tha use of arms, nor to engage in any wan;e train ing, lest, perchance, eome lurking treaeon should be batched against tho Govern ment; and it i unmanly in those who have thus placed, a limit on our amuse ments, to attempt to cast ridicule upon our peaceful sports. It is true that yon are now eneatred in no perilous contest; but I see around me some, at least, wbo I have met before in other scenes, and whose seat were us firm in tba saddle wben tbey rode down the enemy' line blazing with fire, whose nerves were as steady and whose Sim was as true wben they leveled the navy-six at the breast of the. foe as now, when the peaceful lance is pointed at the harmless ring. ' The object for which you are assembled is worthy of your labor. The widows and tbe-orphans of those who fell fighting against ns are amo'lv crovided with Pen sions aud homes, by the strong purse of the Government for which they fought, and by the libera! contribution of those whose wealth was unimpaired by the rav ages of war. '" ' Tbeir wounded are the wards of tbe re public, and tbe bodies of tbeir dead have been gathered by the hand of a grate ful Government tcto-tranJ national cem eteries, where a natiou'a tears can water ineir graves, a umiwu . iuvudw mus turn, praises, knd a nation' prayers implore blessiogs npon tbem to the latest pos terity. Butvour father, your brother, and your friend lies where be fell in the thick est ot tbe ngnr, ana wnereyou ten mm, though your heart was sick and sad, to continue the struggle. The little hillocks which mark tbeir last' resting place will toon .be forgotten, and the rude plough share of tbe husbandman will turn np the lod made rich with tba purest blood tbat Satriot ever shed in treeiom s cause, ut let ns remember tbat "the blood of tbe martyrs is tbe seed of tbe church,' and hope tbat this stone of States Bights, which tbe iconoclast of the republic have rejected, may yet become " the chief stone of tbe corner." Your maimed and wounded brother, mhn eacaned tha leaden hail of death upon the battlefield, and survived the r . -r . ii: i:r I... freezing winters m a .umict . iiir( ua lived to endure the more chilling and heart-benumbing blasts of this world's cold charity. Tbe Confederate wido,ia bowed down before tbe bymenial altar, whose tires have gone out forever, and the orphan listens for the voice and tbe footsteps of a father who will never re turn. These are the objects ot your cara it ia for them that vou have practiced the sport which yon are to perform to-day. for ineir assisiaucu ium v.oi, uiuimuu has assembled, and while we freely coo- tribute onr mite to the living, we will eberiah wtb. deepest reverence our mem ories lor tbe dead.

The Concert. ImI Evenlug at the State Female College. Last eroning, the young ladies of tha abovo institntion had their grand focal and ' instrumental concert in the ca pacioni college chapel, which wa wit nessed by at least eight hundred people, half of whom were from the city, and we do not mistake wben we say it wa a rare musical treat and a splendid entertain ment. It wa protracted till near twelve o'clock, and throughout tha evening the leleetioue were) received with marked evidence of delight and appreciation. Tbe programme was happily selected being replete in variety, and affording a fine opportunity to the pupil for a die play of their accomplishments. We have not space to mention the name of all the young ladies wbo acquitted themselves most creditably, and can give only a few wbo, by their artistio rendition of the parts assigned them, elicited an eatboaiV astic applause. Miss Simmons, tbe highly accom plished musk teacher, and class executed in eplendid style a solo and chorus, and an operatic; selection by Misses Wooten and Sbeltoa was warmly applauded. Tbe Grand Waltz, from Schuloff, by Misses Alexander and Shelby, was executed in fine style and was generally admired. Miss Ltucretia Cavalina sang with rare sweetness of voice "Sounds so Joyful, (La Sovmambula) and received many plaudit of admiration. Tbe duet by Misses Forrest aad Blair, with Miss Nora Bradford at the piano, was one of the gems of the evening, and unsurpassed bv any other performance. The conver sational duet, "Matrimonial Sweets," a very laughable sarcasm on the " Ups and Downs of Married Life, by Misses Fannie McKie and L. Cavaline, was ad mirably rendered with a true conception and natural representation, and rsptu rously enosred. " Mother, Can This tbe Glory Be?" was enacted in fine style and with marked effect by Misses Lizzie Col lins and Georgia Bsttis. "I Am Merry Zingara," by Mis Mary Blair, the " Pretty Z ngarella," by Miss Mary Poaton, and a solo by Miss Mary Hill were very creditable performances and highly appreciated. Tbe "A. B. C." duet, by Misses Alexander and McKie, with Miss Simmons at the piano, was executed in a most graceful manner, and with rare taste and talent, and elicited a deserved applause and encore. The "II Bacio" (solo), an operatic selection from tbe Italian of Arditi, by Miss Fan nie IjKie, was one of the most artietio and finished performances ot the evening, and was not only greeted with a pexlect storm of applause, but honored with a double encore.' -"Beautiful Mountain Home," by Misses Cooper and Poston, was ..well, . performed, . . and applauded. The -"IoflammatuB," from the Opera of Stabat Mater, by Miss Simmons and claes, was a fine specimen of musical skill and a treat such as is rarely en joyed. Miss Nora Bradford then cam forward and saog " Kathleen Mavour- ueen " (not on the programme) most ex- oellenlly, end was rapturously encored. This closed, the performances of the evening acd let ns say, that it is tlof evetyv one in at audience that can admire the strains of Bellini, tha , grand and .beayt-thrilliog over tures of Betbooven. yet the an- dieaca , who wtre present, ea this occasion, showed tbeir discrimination and taste by warmly applauding tbe pro Auctions cl the great masters .of this beauliful art, when rendered with so much taste and skill as npon this occasion.

Tbe cause of this the writer does not presume to expluin. It is undeniable that there is material enough for many such societies here; and it certainly does not appear that we have advanced so far in mental culture and oratorical ability a to re quire no additional ,mens for. mental improvement. In. every city laying the smallest claim to advancement and en lightenment, literary aud : debating soci eties are organized - and appreciated And this is as it should be,' lor "as iren sharpeneth iron, so "mind sharpeneth mind." Surely it ill becomes the young of this city to evince by their careless ness a sort of in'ellcctual stupor, and to evidence ignorance or non-appreciation of the manly tone of mind, and self dependent and courteous bearing im parted by meeting each other in tbe a;ena of essay,, and debate. An hour or two pent in a literary ssciety one evening each week can be easily spared by all. especially by those wbo fritter away many leisure hours without purpose or object. ... The Irish Literary Society which meets thi evening at half-past seven corner of Main and Adams streets is formed to meet the existing necessity to some extent Tbe writer was present at the last meeting, and was surprised and pleased to hear a good debate, in which there was speak ing 'really worth listening' to. The proceedings weia interesting, and. the society- is certain to become ' large and popular.' No Irishman in Memphis should be absent from tbe meetings; and young men joining it will confer on them selves a lasting benefit by acquiring facilty of expression and soundness of judgment, as well as a strong incentive to more extensive reading and study From experience, the writer can assure young men desirous of joiningor visiting tbe society, of a kind and courteous re ception.
