Captain Freligh, an old Memphian, is editor of the Brazilian World in Rio Janeiro. A large number of persons from the country are in tbe city, ' and business is brisk. In the Dickens case last evening Dr. Lynch testified that Bolton at the time of bis death had pneumonia. Mr. B. M. Stevens, late, of John Rob inson's combination, but now connected with C. W.

A meeting of the delegates to the Louisville Commercial Convention took place last evening, and a motion pre vailed that all citizens who deairo to at tend meet at Col. Eerr't office and en roll their names. One might reasonably imagine, from the worn-out, rotten and ragged condi tion of the footpaths of the bridge across the railroad track on Madison street, that such an officer as a Street Commis sioner did pot exist in Memphis. When a serious accident occurs t'irougb negli gence on somebody's part in not mend ing this bridge, the city will be likely to lose money, which it can ill afford1 to spare. Police Items. . Kate Cameron, who can't keep within doors at night, was fined $5 by the Chief of Police this morning for streot walking. Sarah Hardin and George Williams, colored, had a fist battle last evening, and were placed in the lower station- house. Dave Jackson, colored, was committed to jail this morning by 'Squire Millard en the charge of receiving stolen goods. 'Squire Millard this morning sent Jack Woods, George Washington a ad Bill Fisher, colored, to jail on the charge of larceny. . Dave Rice, colored, for being very drunk and disorderly was let off with the light fine of $5 by the Police Commis sioner this morning. ' There were ten cases tried in the First District . this ; morning. Twenty-three cases are on the docket for trial at the Second District this evening. Charley Lewis, oolored, took notion last evening to assault a brother darky and soon afterward found himself in Capt. Atlee's quarters on Causey street. Tem Morebead was this morning bound over by 'Squire Hall in the sum of 1250 to keep the peace. Tom had threat ened to kill another darky named Levy Coleman. Charley Cooper, colored, was taken into custody laBt evening by officer Cul len on the charge of swindling another African. Charley will have a hearing before 'Squire Griffith this afternoon. Mary Williams, a wench of the color of mahogany, entertained several of her friends in South Memphis last evening. The result was that Mary became ex tremely tight, and found herself "gob bled" for disorderly conduct, which will cost her about $10 this evening. Jim Thompson, colored, ever since he became a Radical has had a penchant for taking other people's wearing apparel. He ran eff with a gentleman's suit of black clothes last night, but before he could dispose of it he was nabbed and put into the lower district station-house. Charley Frank, May Barnes and Geo. Bowers, all colored, had a queer old row last night Tbey not only assaulted and battered each other, but abused every col ored man and woman on Causey street The'trio will be likely to pay f 10 each this evening or spend a few weeks in the station-bouse. Joe Johnson, a light-fingered fgentle- man of color, was captured by the police of the lower elation last evening for in dulging in his peculiar propensity of ap propriating other people's goods to his own nie. Old Father pearoe, who is a good-natured old soul, will deliver a lec tors to Joe this evening at the Second District station-bogie. George Cherry, of saffron hue, thought ba was still a member of tbe loil militia, and linked pn several revolvers. The nolice of the Beceni d.stript, however, thought George had no ose for revolvers in these peaceable times, and conse tjuently placed him in the calaboose.

He appeared in tbe drama of Oonagh't Engagement, which presents Irish life in a somewhat fairer light than tbe pieces dramatised (rom Lover's works. Hit impersonations are perfect, and his Irishman is more like the rollicking, loviog.honest-hearted creature that Charles Lever or Gerold Griffin draws than any we have yet seen on the stage, We can say, without fear of contradio tion, that he is an artist superior to Col tins, and comes closer to the beautifully rendered delineations of Tyrone Powers than any comedian now on the stBge, What Barry 8ollivan it in tragedy, Murray ia in cemedy a great artist and we don't know that we could say much more in his favor. He was well supported by Mils Josephine Fiddes as " Oonagh O Halloran" and Miss Laura Don as " Katy Beamish," We were particularly well pleased with the manner in which Frank Bosworth performed tbe part of "Matbew Flana gan," and J. J. Wallace that of " Daniel MtQuoid." The troth is, Wallace is one of tbe finest actors in his line on the American stage, and we are sure our discriminating play-goers will soon fall in love with him. . k rank Boiworth is an old Memphian, having played heretwen ty years ago with Sol Smith, Jim Charles, Dave Ash, and the rest of the " old boys.' When the " old folks at home" get ac quainted with him, they will be reminded of many incidents connected with tbe early history of the Bluff, as Frank is full of anecdotes, and has stored in his memory many good stories about the great men who flourished in our midst, We would be doing injustice to Harvey Merry not to say that bis new scenery is all that can be desired ; and it gives ns great pleasure to find an artist that un derstands perspective, and can correctly draw, -color and foreshorten. To-night Oonagh't Engagement will be repeated Notes' Ciacus. This old-established show will be here on the 7th of next month, and exhibit on tbe bluff epposite Madison street. Among the performers to delight us we note Mrs. Emma Stokes, Ella Stokes, Emma Stokes, Eaty Stokes, Little Belle and Miss Nettie Seyton, as well as Wooda Cook, the champion somersanlt rider and pupil of Mr. Noyes the only living artist who has accom plished, on a swift-running, thoroughbred racer, twenty-five consecutive somer aaults; Frank Robinson, great leaping clown ; Clark Gibbs, Mississippi's favor ite son ; Lewis Willson, Luke Willson and Arthur Willson, the unrivalled gym nasts; Charles McCarty, the famous athlete ; 8ig. Monteverde, the Peruvian contortionist ; Fred, Barclay, the acooro plished scenio bareback rider. Notwith standing all that has been said or sung about the classic games of antiquity, the horses that won prizes at chariot races, or the nude wrestlers and muscular ath letes who distinguished themselves at the solemnities, in oar opinion the regular legitimate circus of the nineteenth cen tary goes . tar aneaa of an toe epic wonders ever recited. Whatever mar vels may nave been achieved in the ancient arena, whether the exploits of tbe riders in the time-houored hippodrome, or the daring splendors exhibited in the Grecian arena, nothing in a practical shape was ever perpetrated of old that will compare with the bold, manly, agile feats of horse manship given by Master Wooda Cook, the 'refit boy rid' of the prnt day. Tbe centaur is no longer a fable ; it is more than realized in Wooda's perform ances. No power of description can con vey an idea of the brilliancy of bis in comparable horsemanship it must be witnessed. Had be lived in the times of the Thunderer, Wooda would have had immortality conferred npon him. Mer cury would have been mustered out of service and Wooda Cook invested with his caducens and winged extremities. Talk of the heroic paBt Bring out your Milos and Sampsons, yet at Mr. Noyes' circus this wonder appears every day to the great delight of thousands. There will be a grand tournament every eve ning, exhibiting the splendors of the field of the cloth of gold. Broom's Opera Hoitsi. A large crowd of fun-lovers were assembled at this favorite temple of Apollo and Terp sichore last evening. Tbe bill prepared byTbarley White, the excellent stage manager, was replete with a variety of entertainments that pleased tbe audience hugely. If any man knows how to run an opera house well it it Charley White, and hit friends may be counted by tbe hundreds. Miss Fanny May is an artist of graat ability, and tbe warm rounds of applause she receives every night show how well the patrons of the house appre ciate her efforts to please. A new bill to-night.

Journal: ' I am engaged in building a railroad from Selma, Alabama, to Memphis, Ten nessee: a railroad two hundred and eighty milea long, which cannot fail, if completed, to be vastly beneficial to tbe people of tbe three otatet of Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. Ia this work I am trying to enlist the co-operation of men of all parties who. like myself, feel an interest in the development ef the country, and desire to efface all traces of tht late war in a prosperity greater than tbe South ever before enjoyed, because it will be based upon tbe development of all her varied resources. This railroad will traverse the finest portions of Alabama and Mississippi, af ford an outlet to market for tbe cotton lands of those States, give a route to tbe Mississippi river for tbe rich ooal and iron deposits of Alabama, and carry back in return the products of the West. The accomplishment of such an enterprise, in my opinion, ia an object worthy tht am bition of any man, and to ose who lovet hit country and humbly teekt to terve the interests of hit fellow-citizens, is far above tbe consideration of mere partisan politics. J. A. Butts A Co., Bainbridge, Ga., says: "We have heard tome taythey would not take ten thousand dollars for the benefit derived from Simmons' Liver Regulator." Rev. S. Gardner, Attapul gus, Ga., tayt: "For all derangementi of tbe liver, for dyspepsia, diarrhea and piles, Simmons' Regulator has no supe rior. It acts like a charm." Jehn J. Allen, Bibb county, says : " I can confi dently say that it has done me more good than all the medicine I ever nsed. I shall never be without it Simmons' Liver Regulator seems to bt gaining golden opinions, and every one should nse it."
