published a statement about some per
sons, unknown, cutting the forge bellows
of Mr. Britton, in North Memphis. On
Friday last he purchased two new bel
lows, and on Sunday they were cut in
such a manner as to render them use
less. Some fiend, we presume,, has, a
grudgo against Britton, and wreaks his
vengeance on him in this cowardly man
ner, is the duty of the police ferret
out such a wicked being and bring him
to justice. The officer who does it will
receive the thanks of this community.

To-day the Italians of Memphis are
celebrating the tenth anniversary of
Italian independence in a way worthy of
their name and fame and of the beauti
ful land which gave them birth. They are
not alone paying atributeto the heroism
of Victor Emanuel and the sagacity and
statesmanship of Napoleon III, but to
the great and ever-living principle of
Liberty which springs in the Italian
breast like a wellfof'puro water. Nqr
are they forgetting the great deeds done
in their land by the chivalrous Garibaldi
and the patriots who stood by him in the
hoar of peril battling lender the tricolor
flag iof .freedqrail 11 ra' remembered,
and there is a joyousness pf heart and a
lightness of spirit both pleasing and
beautiful. Ilarmony and good-follow-
ship and sprightlincss and loveliness are
characteristic features of the whole en-
tertiiinment,; y ' ;-!,,' ).,' ( ; f
"O come, thou goddess, blithe and free.
Thou moutuaiii-maid, swi ot Liberty!
With buskin'd kno and bosom bare,
Thy tresses floating in the air;
Come and treading on thy feet.
Independence let us meet,
Thy giant mate, whose awful form
lias often braved the bellowing storm.
And heard its angry spirit shrink,
Rcor'd on somo promontory beuk, ' ' "'
Seen by the lonely fisher far.
By the glimpseof flitting star.

Commixing with the pitchy cloud,
While at his feet the lightnings piny,

Where everlasting summer reigns.'

THE ORATOR OF HE DA V.
Captain James Brizzolnra had not
mounted the rostrum when wo left the
park. All present expected his oration
to be an eloquent effort, replete with
pure thoughts and patriotic sentiments,
and we have not the slightest doubt but
their expectations have been fully met.
A good number of old nnd young Ital
ians told us they were determined to call
on the President of the Society and
their former consul, Joe Augustine Sig
naigo, for a speech; and we told them
that we never knew Gus to refuse a fuvor
to any one, but always took the greatest
pleasure in gratifying the wishes of his
friends. He is down for a speech, sure.

Korkoo. This medicine is rapidly '
gaining the confidence of the people, and '
the nunierous testimonials of its virtues, :
given by practitioners of medicines,
leave no doubt that it is a safe and re
liable remedy for impvritt or tmk blood,
that speaks in hig terms of its curative 1
properties, and give special recom
mendation of Kos koo to the practitioners
of medicine. This is, we believe, the first
instance where such medicines have been
officially indorsed by the faculty of any ;
of the medical colleges, and reflects great
credit npon the skill of Dr. Lawrence,
its compounder, and also puts " Koskoo"
in the van of all other medicines of the
present day. From the Xorfulk Daily

Public LKnnra Ornrr, 1
Msurais, Tk.nn., June 14, 1870. )
The money market presents no material
cbango aince our report of yesterday. There
Is a steady discount demand and considerable
checking, especially on the balances of inte
rior correspondents. Hates continue firm, and
there is plonty of means in our banks and in
the hands of outside brokers. There aeema to
day to be an improved demand for discounts
from numerous branches of trade in generally
small quantities, and accommodations are
readily obUiined upon first clas paper at 10 to
1 per cent, per nnnum. Excepting this class
from 1a to 2 per cent, per month is asked.
Exchange continues firm, buying at par and
sellinj at H premium, with but littlo doing.
There was scurccly anything done in gold to
day. The opening rate in New York was 11254,
but it subsequently advanced V, at which rate
it is quoted at this writing. Dealers lore buy
sparingly at 112, and sell at the New York
quotatitions. Local stocks and bonds are
quiet and somewhat dull, without any demand
except for city bonds, which eould be sold at
47 to 48. City scrip as well as county war
rants are dull ; 73 to 75 is the market quota
tion for the former, and the latter are sold at
about the latter rate by dealers, who will, how
ever, not pay more than 1)9 to 70c for the same.
Tennessee money continues dull at tit) buying
and 71 selling. Railroad stocks are dull and
unchanged, with limited offering, and but
few f-ansnctions at former quotations. Gov
ern men Lb are dull,, with nothing doing.
Tho recent heavy atorma West and South
bare a tendency to strengthen holders, they
believing that the coming crop will fall far
short of the estimates made, base their figures
upon this, and these being far above the views
of buyers, nothing of importance has been
done so fur to-day in the way of aales. Not
withstanding the disastrous reports received
from Arkansas, Mississippi and other cotton
raising States of fearful atorma of rain and
hail, buyers continue firm in the belief that a
decline in price is sure to come, and basing
their views upon this and a dull market at
New Y'ork, refuse to purchase at hardly any
rates. Some few salea were made, however.
of small lots at Vic less than the prices asked
by holdors yesterday. A few bales of tow mid
dlings to complete an order partly filled were
sold this morning at 19Uo; this is, however.
below tho views of holders generally, 'and
anything like a good table of the aame grade
would not be disposed of even at half a oent
higher; consequently, this cannot be given as
an established rate.

RIVER, Bl'SlNESS, MISCELLANEOUS.
The river has declined one, foot in the pat
twenty-four hours. At Cairo yesterday the
decline was one foot, while at St. Louis the
decline has been checked by the high water
in the Missouri, and the river is now rising
there and stationary at Quincy. Above the
latter point it is reported rising. The flood in
the Missouri has reached Leavenworth. That
with the rise in the Mississippi, and the un
looked for and heavy ri e in the Tennessee,
will give us something of a June swell in less
than a week. The Ohio, too, is rising at Pitt
burg, with indicationa of a sufficient rie t
let out another fleet of coal. At Cincinnati
the Ohio is rising, and it is stationary at Lou
isville, with a prospect of a rise at the latter
point to-day. The weather is cool and pleas
ant. Business at the landing is dull.
A white man, known only by the name of
"William," made a desperate attempt to put
an end to bia life, Saturday, by jumping into
the river from the Continental, when that
boat was nearly opposite Columbus. A boat
was lowered and aent after him. but he refuted
to get in, saying he believed those sent to bis
rescue meant to kill him, and while llarry
Kane, mate of the Continental, was persuad
ing him to get in the yawl, he drew a large
knife and plunged it into his own throat,
nearly severing the jugular, after which he
was taken on board and carried to Cairo,
where he i now in the hospital.
