Gullett't improved steel-brush ootton gin is admitted by all who tried or seen it tested to be a superior invention, and it is likely to noma into general use throughout the 8oulh. It has many ad vantages over all others; it answers equally, well for both long and short staple; cleanses the seed thoroughly and more rapidly thai others, and is simple in construction and easily run. The cotton, when ginned, commands a higher price than that eoming from any other gin, aod the economy in fifty bales will easily pay for one of these machines. The indorsement of Messrs. Orgill t Brothers, the highly respectable hard ware firm on front street, is sufficient recommendation of it. They are agents for this gin, and we suggest to all inte rested to eall aod see them.

Mo ses is one of the sprightliest (country) editors in the State ; and now that be is back, we are glad of it The Nashville Banner of Saturday says: . . We are indebted la Mr. F. S. Riehards, late Speaker of the Lower House of the General Assembly, for a copy of the Leedt Mercury, the oldest daily news paper in existence, which contains the following paragraph : "The Queen has been pleased to ap prove of Mr. J. B Gould a. Consul at Birmingham, of Mr. Evan R. Jones as Consul at Newcastle, aod of Mr, F. S. Richards as Consul at Leeds for the United States of America." Mr. B. J. Decker, brother of Charlie Decker, tha well-known little man, and mail agent on the Memphis and Charles ton railread, was fatally injured last Fri day, at noon, by an accident which hap pened to him at Leighton, Alabama, fif teen miles above Toscumbia. He was standing in tbe door of his car with a mail-bag in his hand, when his head came in contact with a passipg freight train, which crushed it almost to a jelly. He was a worthy young man, and about twenty-one years old. His mother and sisters, and bi brother Charlie, are in Nashville. , . . . V : Many of our business men and lawyers are finding snt that it is cheaper and far more pleasant to live in the country aod own a little farm, which, if properly managed, will always yield a snpport for an ordinary family. Many professional gentlemen have of late settled along the line of tt? Memphis and Charleston rail road, and are eatldins tandsome resi dences near the road. Consequently land has gone very rapidly, and we hear occasionally of very fancy prices. All this is the result of the policy adop ted by the railroad po pany of fanning trains to suit the convenience of those in the country who conjs to tbe city every day. .The price of commutation tickets iaiolowtfctt the cheaper living it the roan try will enable any ope to Jraye! jt and oat daily without feeling tbe cost The praspect is that in a few years the road will look like the elegant suburbs of a city for fifteen or twenty miles. But if the property owners along the road desire this prosperous state of 9Virs, we would suggest to them not to jump their land np to city prices, or the building fever may be diverted in some other direotion. - BOW AT WHITE'S STATION. ,iUi' ' ' ' ' ' A Toraclona Freed maa Hortally Woandod. 'i ' Last Saturday was a great day at White'i station, on the Memphis and Charleston railroad. Tbe negroes for ten miles around were gathered together, 'and Tom Hamilton was in thsir midst He made a speech, we are told, and they all bad a jolly time. . Tbe affair was called a picnic, but was really political in character. All the negroes had been no tified in time for the ostensible purpese of holding a picnio, and for the additional purpose of organising a benevolent so ciety which would provide decent burial for its members as tbeir respective drop pings off might require. Among the items of eatables on the ground were twelve small hogs roasted in barbecue style.' The seven or eight hundred dar kies assembled looked with longing eyes on these sleek porcines and hovered around tbem like hungry crocodiles after a fat piccaninny. The fact that not many of them are need to a square meal rendered then particularly ravenous, and their practiced eyes told them that the dozen of dafunot shoats would not go half around. Hence, at an early hoar in tbe day there was a rnsh msde at the bog, and those having tbe business in charge put themselves on the defen sive, and fooght with hungry deape ration. A general row was cheerfully imminent at one time. Pistols were flourished to kill negroes, and knives were whipped out, we charitably sup pose, to slice the hog. Daring the melee a half negro shot and mortally wonnded a man and brother from Memphis. They were both carried off the ground and hos tilities ceased. Hamilton interfered and peace was restored. And thus the benev olent bnrying society was provided with a job on tbe ground. The name of the mulatto who performed the deed is Chss. Watkint; the name of tbe one shot was Dick Woods. Ee died yesterday, and Watkins is held at the station-bouse. He will donhtless be examined and com mitted to-day. i Gayoso Cms.

I L, Littleton, E.ej of iremphle- , Win Two Elegant Prlaea, We find the following in the Buffalo Exprest of tbe 28th ulu from which it will be seen that our worthy fellow-citi zen, H. A. Littleton, hits tbe mark as well almost with pistol or rifle as be does at the insurance business I Cant John Travis, of pistol fame, in opening a shooting gallery at Niagara Falls for the summer, offered two prizes for the best six consecutive pistol shots, and tbe best six rifle shots, and pub lished to the public that the contest would commence at his gallery on the 24th of June, tbe lists to remain open nnttl the 24th of July, tbe shooting to be done en tirely with his pistols, and lists open to all contestants, tbe best pistol shots to carry with tbem tbe championship in pistot shooting of the State of New York.

Mr. Littleton carried off both prizss, a compliment both to him and his teacher, Captain John Travis, who gave bin bis brst instructions not more than two weeks before the close of tbe contest, Tbe prize (or rifle shooting was a hand some gold chain, and that for pistol shooting a heavy gold medallion, with full engraving salting forth the event and result, with tbe measurement of the shots ' The Police Hold. Last Thursday a man of prepossessing appearance, but minus his right leg and using a pair of tall, white crutches wrapped in places with copper wire, called at the headquarters of Mr. Pearpe, tbe Chief of Police, and told him that he had important information to impart. Tbe Chief granted the mysterious stran ger an audience at once. Tbe stranger told him he was from Louisiana, and had been on " Stonewall Jackson's staff. This was preliminary to his valua ble information, which was to the effect that the friends of Clarence Collier in thi city had raised a considerable sum of money for him, and that it was to be de livered to Clarence that night on the opposite fork of the'' river from Memphis. This was news indeed. The Chief ot Folice pushed up his spectacles, smacked his lips and said "I though so," and looked wise. Tbe interview lasted some time, aad before it ended the tall stranger, who was rather seedy, remarked, in a parenthesis, that he had been unfortunate in some specu lation, and was rather hard up, intimat ing that a small loan would be accept able. '"''..' The Chief loaned, and liberally. . Exit stranger. ., ' ' That night large force of police was stationed on both sides of the river, watching fjr Collier; but he came not, neither did any of his friends. Tbey were sold. Aad tbe tall spectral stranger has dis appeared, and may try his baud in some other city. Ha is represented as one of the sharpest gentlemen that has visited Memphis for om time. RIVER, ASH COTTON.
