This is an excellent selection, for the firm Is one of the ablest at 'onr bar, and Memphis can boast of more legal talent than any city of the same popula tion in the Union. Among our numerous subscribers for the Weekly Ledger we notice the name of J. W. Watson, now located as a mer chant tailor' at ' Okolona, Mississippi, where he is said to be doing a prosperous business. He lived in Memphis many years and was located on Madison street. He is a reliable, clever gentleman, and has many; oId , friends here who will be glad to hear that he lives and prospers. The Morristown (East Tennessee) Ga zette of the 20th says: Some parties in digging in a cave near Clifton, Cocke county, in search of min erals, have exhumed human skeleton of giant proportions. In height it is fully seven feet. It was walled up with stone, and from the surroundings it is supposed that it must have been placed there hundreds of years ago. There were a large lot of curiously carved beads, of ivory or shell, found wUh the bones. It is a considerable curiosity and well worth preserving. The entertainment given by the Sodal ity Silver Band, last evening, was well attended, and passed off in a manner satisfactory to the audience. The musi cal part of the programme was received with applause that called for an encore in most cases. The concluding part of the entertainment, a pantomime entitled the ."Magic Box; or, Who . Stole the Liquor," was put upon the stage in a very creditable style, and the various characters filled in a manner that aston ished the friends of the young gentle men and raised the enthusiasm of the audience to the highest pitch. 'The enter tainment will be repeated this evening, at the same place Washington street, between Third and Fourth. The concert at Brinkiey College last night was aa artistic and complete suc cess. It will be repeated to-night with some changes of programme. A morn ing paper says:" It was worth three or four times the price charged for admission to hear Miss Flodie Lewis sing and perform "Spring time," while the same ladv sang " The Lover and .the , Bird," Robert," and other airs so charmingly as to win from all the verdict of a songstress of superior merit and great talent. Her well culti vated voice warbled beautifully and dis tinctly to the satisfaction of every lis tener. Miss Eva Williams executed " Chantti riet donntt " so sweetly that all hearts were delighted. Since this young lady appeared in public last spring she has greatly improved, both in voice and personal appearance.

' Next week we are to have the Lancers at the Memphis Theater. This attrac tion, judging from it (uccess elsewhere, will produce the . liveliest sensation among our refined theater-goers of the season. - A late number of the St. Louis Republican says: " '' ' 1 , .. The Lancers contains many attractive elements that art calculated, if properly handled, to please the popular taste. And we am glad to say that in this in stance the drama ha fallen into, good keeping and is made the most of. The company who appear under the leader ship of Miss Moore and Mr. Wyndham, are really all very excellent in their sev eral department. Everything is done neatly and well, even down to the minor characters, so generally confided to botchers and blunderers. Mr. Windham a "Victor" is a very pleasing and satisfactory actor, who infuse into hit representations an unaffected naturalness quite ont of the ordinary dramatic ruts, and which i correspondingly effective. The scene in the second act where he badgers , the colonel and flirts with madamo, is admirably done in favn, drawn to the life o closely that the mim icry bafile detection. We greet . Mr. Wyndham cordially as a creditable rep resentative of the new school which, it is to be hoped, will speedily banish bom bast and buffoonery from tho stage. But of course the main interest centers about Miss Moore, the fair bead of the combination, and a better head for that position it would indeed be difficult to select. She i an English girl, apparently in the vioinity of sweet two-aud-twenty; fair haired, blue eyed, and with a face lovely in features and fascinating in ex pression. She has a fine presence, and ner. movement are always thoroughly elegant and lady-like, unsoiled by the slightest l approach to that worn-out abomination, the burlesque. Her greatest natural endowment is unquestionably her voice it i full, round, rich and musi cal, without a break or flaw to mar the perfect melody of utterance. She talks our mother tongue in a way refreshing to hear in these day when murdering the King's English is the commonest of crimes. Each word is spoken clearly and distinctly, and the sentences slip from her lips with a mellowness which nobly deserves the title of "vocal volvet." Wo recommend our young ladies, and our young gentlemen, too, to visit the Olympic, and gain thereby- a vivid comprehension of how much har mony there is in language when fitly de livered. As an actress Miss Moore is equal to the best in her line. There are no mannerisms, nothing artificial about her; she walks and talks upon the Stage as though slip were in a drawing-room, and even in the strongest situations of the play there is nothing strained or overdrawn. The second act is an exquisite specimen of genteel comedy, brimming with sprightly umor, and yet always delicate and re fined, while the song which she gives here is tastefully rendered, and proves the lady to be much beyond the average of vocalists. The Moore-Wyndham troupe, then, is emphatically a success, and the liberal applause bestowed last night testified that the audience appre ciated and enjoyed what is, in many re spects, one of the most agreeable enter tainments that our city has seen for years.

Business was very light, owing to the attractions at the race course, a largo number of business men going out to enjoy the sport. Ex change is euHy, and rates the same as yesterday.

Governments were dull and inac tive. commercial. The market opened quite, but with a firmer feeling on the part of sellers, and a moderate demand at the closing rates of yesterday,' which were- responded to in some cases. The anxiety to sell was, however, much less than that noticed last evening. Factors anticipating an ad vance in New York. The news of the capitulation of Metz bad a tendency to strengthen their views somewhat, and several withdrow their table from the market. Later in the day the New York dispatches reported that market stronger and prices tending upward. The sales reported up to noon were about 325 bales.'
