A Rich Dramatic Tbsai. On Thurs
day we informed our play-goers tbst
rich dramatic (rest was in store for them.
They will have it on Tuesday night, when
Mr. and Mm. Walking will appear at the
Memphis Theater. A New Orleans pa
P"' lhl, 8l,euk ( the -appearance of
these superb artists; nti the Academy of
Music in that city: '
Rose and Harry Watkins commenced a brief
engagement at this theater last evening, be
fore a line audienoe, and were received most
enthusiastically. 'Trodden Down, or, Tnder
Two Flags." is about the best of the so-called
sensational dramas, and infinitely superior to
the myriad of Irish plays that have been
foisted upon an Indulgent public, ad noutum.
It has an excellent plot, arranged with rare
skill, the interest gradually increasing through
each act until it euliniuatns in a tbriilingly
impressive denouement.' The language is su
perior to what we have been accustomed to in
this style of play, and rarely heard outside of
the legitimate drama. The sentiment is
htnlthy, for it touches the heart of refinement
and tin, Is a ready response in the breast of tin
most intelligent auditor, while the veia n'
comic humor which runs through the play i .
sparkling, caustic and witty.
Mr. Harry Watkins, as Fergus McCarthy,
the patriot martyr, is deserving of the liighe.t
praise in the power of a critic to lif stow. Tn
fulfill all the requirements n' this itilhVult
ebaraeter, the actor must possess more than
ordinary talent, for it is of a serio-coinio na
ture, and the alternations from comedy are
so sudden, and so constantly recurring, that
he must be a consummate artist who can carry
his audience with him through all thesedifler
ent moods, and move the spectator to laugh
ter or applause. All this Mr. Watkins does,
and so successfully that the effort is never
perceptible, it seems so natural. He is,
undoubtedly an actor of great originality.
Hose Watkins (Mrs. Charles Howard) is well
known t our public as a very accomplished
actress. Her vesatility 4s wonderful, for she
has won success in every role of the drama,
though her greatest triumphs have been
achieved iu the higher walks of her art. In
genteel comedy she is excellent, while as a
singer she stands pre-eminent, being pos
sessed of a fine contralto or mesio-soprano
voice, of good'eompass, which she uses with
all the skill of an educated musician. In
" Trodden Down " she sustains a double role,
that of mother and daughter, and is equally
successful in both characters.
Landlord kd Tenaxt. A dispute
arose between Mr. Cogswell, an od and
respected citizen, and a Mr. Wilson, who
rents a house on Pontotoc street from Mr.
Cogswell, on Thursday, which resulted in
a shooting afiair last evening. It appears
that while Cogswell was standing on the
sidewalk talking to a friend Wilson camo
np behind and discharged a pistol at
him, the ball from which entered Cogs
well's left shoulder, inflicting a danger
ous wound. Wilson was in the Bet of
firing another shot when he wus pre
vented by a bystander a gentleman
named J. F. Walsh knocking him
down. Mr. Cogswell was conveyed in a
carriage to his home on Union street,
when medical aid was immediately called
in, and his wound properly attended to.
Wilson was lodged in jail. There must
be something wrong in the administra
tion of law or in the morals of the com
munity when men resort to weapons to
settle little disputes.
Progress. We are glad to have some
workingmen in the city who don't care a
copper for polities, and are consequently
flourishing in their own business. Messrs.
John E. Randle & J. Wilson Heath, of
the Chickasaw Foundry and Machine
Shops, on the southeast corner of Second
and Winchester streets, have just erected
a splendid addition to their establish
ment, which now makes it one of the
completes! iron and brass workshops in
the country. They are gentlemen of
inventive as well as mechanical genius
Heath's patent well-borer is used all over
the country with great success. Of their
castings for buildings and steamboats
and their agricultural machinery we will
speak some oilier time. All we have
room to Ray now is, let every n'n en
courage home indiiMtry, nnd especially
manufactures. . ., , ,

zens will regret the demise of Captain
Morgan M. Biitemnn, which took place
at three o'clock this morning at his resi
dence, on Lauderdale street, near Her
nando road. The Captain was among
the first, settlers on the liluft'; was a
prominent river man; and a gallant
soldier iu the lato conflict of arms. His
funeral tnkes place to-morrow morning
at ten o'clock from his late residence.
Stenuiboutmen, old citizens and Confed
erate soldiers are invited to attend it.
Death or Jcuok Rkkvm. Hon. Geo!
W.Reeves, Judge of the Fifteenth Ju

Somerville on. Thursday evening from

native of North Carolina, but had resided
in Fayette county for about thirty-five
years. . He was a kind-hearted man and
an honest Judtie.

Til Ice Cream StAsoa. The warm,
delightful weather has had the effect of
opening the ice cream season, which was
commenced in grand style atthe'stab
lishment of our friend B. Rocco, on the
corner of Main and Adams streets, to
day. Rocco has long had the reputation
of being one of the best confectioners in
the South, and the delicious ice cream
and wholesome cake which he spread
before his patrons fully confirmed the
fact. His ice cream room is so centrally
located that ladies from all parts of the
city flock to it for the cooling beverage.
It is tastefully carpeted and beautifully
ornamented, so as to make it the popu
lar resort of our most fashionable people.
There are marble-top tables, mirrors,
chandeliers, damask curtains, and all
I lie pharaphernnlia of 'a aui ,in r palace.
Around the walls are hung portraits
(In oil colors) of Oeneral ami Mrs. Wash
ington, General Li e and Jackson, and
nearly all the prominent Confederate
Generals. In such a cool and cozy
place ludies feel as if they were in parn
disc while eating the sweet cake and
delicious ice cream manufactured by
Rocco. His silver soda-water fountain
is another grand feature. It is the pret
tiest thing of the kind we have seen for
years. His wines ate excellent; and, iii
fact, everything he keeps and makes is
of the best quality. We recommend
everybody who desires good ice cream to
visit Kocco's little paluce.
Memphis Theatkr. There was a f ill
attendance at the mutinee to-day. This
is the last night of the great Lingard,
and those who have not seen him should
go ' and see him. He will give his
"Sketches" in grand style. Besides he
will appear as Toby Twinkle, in the
pretty drama of " All That Glitters is
Not Gold," Miss Alice Dunning Lingard
appearing as Martha Gibbs. Monday
evening the celebrated Peak Family of
Swiss Bell Ringers will give one of those
charming concerts which have been so
much admired by persons of musical
taste in Europe and this country. Let
Lingard have a bumper to-night. . We
know there will be a full and fashionable
attendance on Monday evening.
Well, Well. Our Christian and gen
erous friend John Lilly, at 351 Main
street, never forgets us. To-day he
seut us a sample of his Scotch ale and
Dublin porter, which the compositors of
the Lkdceb office, who are good judges,
pronounced to be the best they ever
drank. All who deal with John (and
their number is beyond counting) know
that he keeps the best groceries, wines,
liquors and cigars always in his store.
He is the most obliging nan in the world
to deal with. Hence his great popu
larity. . ' m
The Commercial Hotel. There are
many echoes in this world ; but few voices.
And so are there many who attempt the
nice responsibility and large undertaking
of " running a hotel;" but few succeed in
the intricate enterprise. The proprie
tors of the well-known Commercial rank
honorably with the latter. , They know
how to " keep a hotel," as is substantially
affirmed by the skillful management of
their house, which is complete in every
appointment,' We cheerfully commend
the Commecial to all wayfarers in search
of comfort. The hotel is conveniently
located, and the terms are exceedingly
moderate. dw
We would call the attention of the
ladies of Memphis to look out during
next week for bnrgnins in the way of
dress goods, housekeeping gooiU, hosiery
and fancy goods, at M. Kraus &. Co.'s,
218 Main street, corner of Adams. For
the past week this house has had an im
mense run of trade, and good bargains
were obtained. We were told that this
house sold goods low last week, and, as
the old savinir is. "what everybody savs
must be true. So convince yourselves
the coming week, all that have not been
there yet, and give the house a call.
St. Peter's Suxdat School Picnic.
On Monday, the 2d of May, the children
of St. Peter s Sunday School will hold a
picnic in James' Park. Tickets of ad- j
mission fifty cents. That this will be a i
grand and pleasant affair is certain.
Thousands interested in the welfare and
enjoyment of the little ones will be there.
A number of new banners, designating
the various classes, will be displayed on
this occasion adding to the grandeur of
the scene.
St. Georoe's Ball. The St. George's
Benevolent Association will hold its
fourth annual ball in this city at Cochran
Hall on Monday evening next. That
the sons of "Merrie England " will en
joy themselves in a jovial and becoming
manner is beyond doubt. The ball will
be a success beyond the anticipation of
the members of the association.
Social Party. We are informed the
Philodemic and Social Club had a very
agreeable entertainment at the residence
of Mrs. Joe Bruce, on Union street, last
evening. It gives us great pleasure to
record the unions and reunions of our

, Mr. E. H. Lomas left his home In j
iisi-,
frora
Memphis who owned a plantation near
this place. He induced Mr. Lcmas to
Com w:.tb him to work the plantation
on ahares. It is now four weeks since
Til a Great Bni;kactoh. There is no
doubt but Edward Wilder, the celebrated
druggist and chemist of Louisville, is a
great benefactor to the human rnce.
His medicines have cured millions. His
Sarsaparilla iii said to be the most efficient
of all the' alteratives derived from the
vegetable kingdom, and the Iodide of
Potassium the . most powerful of all
those obtained from the mineral' world.
All who have had large clinical experi
ence are satisfied that either of these
substances increases and intensifies the
power of the other. The Potash aug
ments the activity of the Sarsnparillu,
and this in its turn adds immensely to
the virtues of the Potash. His Stomach
Bitters invigorate the enfeebled stomach
and revive the overwrought system.
They add new power to the weak
ened heart, and sustain the over
taxed brain. Besides being greatly
superior to, they are unlike all other bit
ters, in hnvintr .'or their base pnre cop
per distilled JSunrhmi whisky. This fact
alone has given them a character in the
city where they nre made, and must
commend them to the lovers of the
good and the genuine everywhere. His
Kxtract of Wild Cherry has been pro
nounced by the Pharmaceutical Society
of London and Berlin to possess more of
the. virtues of this invaluable tree than
; any other ever presented to them. To
this extract is added other ingredients
derived from the vegetable kingdom,
which give an efficiency, activity and
power to this remedy which justly en
titles it to be called the destroyer of
coughs, colds, catarrhs, larangitis, asth
ma, influenza and croup. Not one of
these affections can withstand it. They
yield instantly to its magic power. His
Chill Tonic is a certain, a speedy,
a permanent cure for every disease
arising from miasma or malaria. No
form of intermittent or remittent fever
can resist it. Quotidian, tertian, quar
tian, and twenty-one day chills are ob
liged to yield to it. It is the conqueror
of every species of marsh or swamp
fever. It is the complete master of

His Mothers' Worm Syrup is the one
thing needed to secure the children
against the insidious evils of the many
worms which infest their intestinal tract.
It is reliable. It is pleasant. It is salu
brious. It is safe. It expels round
worms, thread worms, and the huge
tape worm. It cannot full. It clears up
the skin. It sweetens the temper of the
little sufferers. It secures sleep. It
brines back the appetite. It relieves the
turmid belly. It advances the growth
of the child. It restores the roses to
its cheek. It saves its teeth. It guards
ngainst convulsions, spasms, and St.
Vitus' dance. It is fur superior to all
other medicines for expelling worms.
Now is the time to use these remedies.

RIVER, BUSINESS, MISCELLANEOUS.
The river has declined 2'i inches since our
last report, making a decline of J inches in
all. At Cairo yesterday the river fell 18 inches
and at St. Louis the decline was 8 inches. At
the latter point on Thursday night the river
was 24 feet i inches above low water mark of
1HC.1, and 18 feet 6 lnrhes below high water
mark of 1844. The Missouri and Upper Mis
sissippi with their tributaries are declining.
The Ohio Is rising at Louisville, with 16 feet 8
inches in the canal, and 13 feet 8 Inches over
the rapids. At Cincinnati the rise yesterday
was 6 feet, and there was 45 feet in the chan
nel and but 47 feet under the suspension
bridge for passing steamers. At Marietta and
Pittsburg the river was stationary last night,
but will decline to-day. Cumberland and
Tennessee rivers are falling. White river is
stationary. The Arkansas is falling as rapid
ly as it rose, and has about 4'- feet to Little
Rock.
Weather sultry.
Business on the levee is flat nothing doing
either in receiving or shipments.
The Thos. H. Allen came in from the Ar
kansas with a moderate trip, and will on Mon
day return to that stream.
The K. P. Walt came in on one wheel, and
will be repaired in time to leave on her next
regular day.
The Dcs Arc takes the Walt's place to-day
for White river, going through to Jaekson
pyrt, nnd makes connection- at Detail's Bluff
with the train for Little Rock and at Jackson
port with the Fairy Queen for all points on
Black river. Cnpl, Riley Kiuman goes out in
command, and Messrs. Uarbon and Hull as
clerks.
Notwithstanding the high water the Geo. W.
Check continues lo make all the landings be
tween here and F'riar's Point. The Check Is
now at the levee, and will depart at 5 p.m. for
the above points. Mark Cheek commands,
and Barney Barinds assisted by Chas. Jackson
are her secretaries.
Steamboating as a business is not so profit
able as many are led to believe. Very few
persons who make it a business through life
get rich. This fact was illustrated at Nash
ville a few weeks since, when the widow of a
well-known steamboat captain had occasion
to swear that her huxband "lelt no money at
his death, except PM, and not even a home
for herself and little children." Her bus
band was, up to the time of his death, always
in command of the best steamers, nitd re
garded by the public as a wealthy wan.
New Orleans rates at Cincinnati were re
duced to 40c. per hundred in eonsequence of
the compction between the steamers Kdin
burg, Wauanitaand Alice Dean, which boats
are loading at that port for New Orleans.
An unknown woman attempted to drown
herself at Cincinnati yesterday by jumping
into the river from one of the boats laying at
the levee. She was flshed out, however,
before accomplishing ber purpose.
Southern rates at St. Louis remain in a de
moralised condition. Flour is taken for New
Or'eans at from 20 to 25 cents per barrel, and
pound freights from 12 to IS cents per hundred, j
the former being the barge ra,tes. Memphis j
rates are 30 cents per barrel for flour and pound
iurand pound
tVlaid up .b; !
freights in proportion. It is more
able tnat several steamers will be laid up
that port within a few days, unless an arrange
eanbemade by the different steamboat lines
and the Barge Company to advance ratut to a
living figure.
The Peninah left St. Louis Thursday Jfor
Fort Benton, with 248 tuns, and drawing 3'4
feet.
The John Kilgour has laid up at Portland.
Competition on the Lower Cumberland is
lively. Tobacco is being freighted at 11 50 per
hhd., and the boats pay back a rebate to the
shipper of 50 ets., and carry the owner for
nothing and furnish him with liquor and
cigars.
Oa Wednesday a negro deck hand fell off
the C. T. Dumont, while at Lawrenceburg,
and was drowned.
Captain Dick Lightburne this morning re
ceived a telegram stating that the steamer
Indiana would arrive her to-day and leave
at 5 p.m. for Cairo and Louisville. The In
diana is well known as one of the finest boats
afloat, and will make good time. Rube Neal
commands and Charley Miller is her Secre
tary. Clarksville papers contain an account of a
queer freak of the steamer Bayard a few days
.lnu k .v.. A 1. 1
absent from hi. Do-t.'iet tb. boat wheel round
and make directly for shore under full speed, j
The water was ever the bank some four or f ve
feet, and the Bayard passed over the spot
where the bank is in low water, and made full
headway for the woods, knocking over tw
good sited trees, and running belweea two j
larger one was held fast until pulled oat by 1
another boat. She sustained little or a :
damage. The pilot recelred kls salary fur
Iha jaih somewhat earlier than be had j
been vcca.t.med to, y
Captain Joseph. M. Bennet, a well known j
Arkansas river steamboat saaa, died at St. I
Lonis on Saturday morning last of pneumonia,
in the afty-fourth year of his age. Captain
Bennett was engaged la the steamboat busi
ness on the Arkansas river as early as 1838,
He owned three or four boats of his own, and
the last one he run on that river was burned
by the order of Uoneral Hindman, in the
mouth of the Poteau river. In the fall of lStC.
on General Blunt's raid into Van Buren.
The St. Louis Democrat says that the St.
Lonis, Arkansas and White River Packet
Company will, in due course, locate wharf
boats at all points where they are needed. If
that company place wbarfboats only nt
"points where thsy'are needed," they will

EUREIiA HOOT!
THE FIRST PREMIUM AT THE (,'REAT
St. Louis Fair for IStjtt was awarded to the
muuufaeturers of this beautiful boot. It com
bines all the utility of the sewed boot with the
cheapness of the pegged boot. Its construc
tion Is in this wise; instead of pegs, a peculiar
sbaiied brass screw Isdriven into thesole when
damp, and smoothly and securely clinched,
thus holding the soles and uppers together sn
tight that tliey can never rip or give way.
They have all the smoothness and elasticity of
the sewed boot, and none of the disadvan
tages attaching to the pegged boot. We sell
them at a price but a trifle more than (bat of
the pegged boots; thus we furnish you witli
something that is indeed economical. We
have a fresh stock of all kinds of Boots and
Shoes for ladies, gents, misses and children:
also a tine line of shoe oriitunents, which we.
will sell at wholesale and retail.
