The negro went in at the window and proceeded down stairs, where the noise was heard. An parties were anxiously expecting the appear ance of tho burglar, when a loud laugh from the negro caused them to rush down stairs. An immense owl was seated in the kitehen, like the raven on the but f Pallas, and,1 like the raven Hew out into ine uarxness o return nevermore. 8UICIOE YESTERDAY MORNING. Latter from tha Karortnuata Tie Early yesterday morning a chamber maid at the Worsham House was unable to arouse the inmate ofoneof the rooms, and at once gave the alarm.when the door wag broken in, and a terrible spectacle met the gazo of the party. A man was lying dead 'on the bed, and a pistol, heavily loaded, which bad evidently dropped from his hand, lay by his side. An .empty bottle of morphmewas found near him, and also a handkerchief sat urated with chloroform. With these po tent instruments of death in his possession and being determined to launch his bouI into 4he next world, no wonder be suc ceeded in committing the fatal deed. Chief O'Donnell at once summoned Cor oner MofTutt, who summoned a jury of inquest. The name of the unfortunate huioido'wa Jame O. Lindley, of Stray- Horn (near Senatobia), Mississippi. The following letter was badly written on the leaf of a blank pass book, with a lend pencil, and was folded up and ad dressed to J. W. & J. M. Lindley, Stray- Horn, Mississippi, via Senatobia. The letter is as follows: . , Mkmphis, November 21. My Boloved Ilrother and 8iatera: The thing must come to a close. I have told you that the Ku-Klux was going to take my life, and before I will go back on my country I will die. I bought a ticket to-day to leave here. My spirit revealed. Your brother, . Fraternally, J. A. Linoi.cy. the unfortunate man bad spread a shawl on the bed. An empty tumbler in which had been poured the morphine was near him, It ia evident that he hesitated for some time as to the man ner in which he would commit the rash deed. No doubt he determined to use the pistol at one time, and, changing his mind in favor of the drtig, laid it down. He drained the fatal glass, and "laid him down to pleasant dreams. ' On his person was found a letter from Mr. J. R. Rodgers, of Robinson's Land ing, Mississippi, of date October 12, 1870. Mr. Rodgers wrote to him to come down to his place and repair a gin at his own price, for which, he would be under many obligations to him. A letter dated Sep tember 2d, 1870, from V. B. Waddell, of our city, to " Joe," evidently a brother to the deceased, with reference to money matters, was also found upon his person Upon investigating the facts and above proof, the jury returned a verdict of sui cide by taking morphine. Coroner Mof- fatt has written to the relatives of the deceased in Mississippi, but no answer has, as .yet, been received. The de ceased was evidently laboring under an attack of insanity from some unknown cause when he committed the rash and desperate deed. Amaienenta. St. Patrick's Fair.

Notwithstanding the fact that McWade hail to pass through the ordeal of adverse and caustic criticism, and that kind of faint praise, which is almost censure, from a portion of the Memphis press, he has won his way to public favor, and has been' eminently successful in drawing large houses to witness bis rendition of Rip Van Winkle. Thii fact ia the most successful answer to hypercritical objec tions presented by a few dramatic re porters of our city. Mr. McWade will appear in St. Louis next week and give the people of that flourishing village an introduction to the hero of the Catskill Mountains. Varieties.

The river is declining slowly here and at Cairo, but is aboHt stationary at St. Louis, with but five and one-half feet of water below and five feet above the last named point. The Missouri is very low, and difficult to navigate above Kansas City. Tho Ohio is falling slowly at Ev ansville, but is stationary at Louisville and Cincinnati, and rising rapidly at Pittsburg from the effects of the recent heavy rain and snow storms along its upper tributaries. The prospects for a coal-boat rise are flattering. Cincinnati steamboatmen even anticipate a fifteen- foot rise at Pittsburg, which, with the rise now coming out of the other tribu taries of the Ohio, will enable a resump tion of navigation from Cincinnati South. White river is stationary, with four feet to Devall's Bluff, and three and one-half feet to Augusta. The Arkansas is also stationary, with five feet scant to Pine Bluff, and four feet thence to Little Rock. Business at the levee is quiet, with few arrivals or departures. Weather clear and cool. A heavy fog settled upon the river last night, which will doubt less delay the boats due several hours. The Sullie is loading at St. Louis for the Arkansas. The City of Vieksburg, on her last trip, made ninety landings between St. Louis and Vieksburg, and 110on her way back. Thursday's St. Louis Democrat says: "The Olive Branch was, and may be still pretty bard aground at tbe head of Lib erty Island, when the Grand Tower passed up, and Was drawing seven feet water. Her second clerk had gone to Chester for a ferryboat." Cupt Sam Taylor, a well-known White river stenmboatman, died at Dcs Arc, Ar kansas, an Thursday last. The J. S. Dunham leaves Little Rock to-day for New Orleans. The R. P. Walt goes out to-morrow for all points on White river. Wednesday's Louisville Commercial contains the following: Boats are paying $1 per box for coal at Memphis, and if we do not bave a rain soon the price will advance, as coal is becoming very scarce in that market. There it a party here buying and ship- pine coal by rail to Memphis, steamers on their downward trip had better take .coal enough at ShotwelVs, or some of the mines on the lower part ot the river, to run thera back to the Ohio. A lurther advance would make coal as good freight as they can carry. , -., The Dexter has gone to St. Louis to load. ' Tbe following boats passed Cairo Wednesday, en route South: J. N. Kel logg, Post Boy, C. B. Church, Mary Miller. Capt. James W. Batcbelor has ordered the wrecking steamer T. F. Eckert to proceed from Paducnh to Evansville, to work upon the City of Evansville, burned on Monday morning. There is less tlian six feet of water be tween Cairo and St. Louis. The M. J. Wicks went into St. Louis Wednesday evening drawing only five and a half feet, and yet she rubbed several times between Cairo and that port. Yesterday's St. Louis Times has it that Commodore Thompson Dean had a nar row escape from death by a railroad ac cident while on his recent trip to this city. I Captain David L. Sedam, of the Bel fast, has sued Captain Cannon of the Lee for $HO0 damages. It seems that Captain Cannon made a contract with Captain Sedam by which the Belfast was to carry the Lee's freight on a specified day, and the petitioner claims that the' terms of the contract bave pot been ful filled. The Anna, Capt. Frank Stein, will be in port, to leave to-morrow evening for Cairo, Evansville and Louisville. The Marble City leaves at 5 p.m. to day for Cairo and St. Louis. , The City of Alton will be down to-day, and departs at 5 p.m. for Vieksburg and tbe bends. Capt. Larry Ilarmstad informs ns that in view of the present rise in the Ohio river he will now sign bills of lading through to Cincinnati. At last accounts the City of Quincy was aground on French Island bar. An Evansville telegram of the 22d says: captain Jack U rammer, Ad miral NUbit and John S. Hopkins, Treasurer of the Evansville and Cairo and Memphis Packet Company, leave to-night and to-morrow morning to con tract for a new boat to be put in the place of the City of Evansville. Capt. W. B. Lanier, a veteran steam- boatman, paid ns a visit this morning, and states that it ia hi iutentioa to again pluce a boat in the Hatchie river trade. Captain Lanier nndialauua that trade thoroughly, having ben engaged in it at different times since and will, aa doubt, reap a rich harvest from hit labor. He has recently purchased- tbeTora Mor- D.

PLANTATION ISE gan, and now has her ready to enter the river on the first rise. It is said that the wharfmaster at Nashville has not collected wharfage enough in the last six months to pay his board. The Importer, from Arkansas river, arrived at New Orleans on Friday with 1141 bales cotton. A suspension bridge over the East river, to connect New York and Brook lyn, has been projected.' Sixteen hun dred feet of navigable water is to be bridged by a single span, twice as long as that of the Niagara suspension bridge, and four times the length of the longent non-suspension span ever attempted. The elevation will be 131! feet above high water, and the tallest masted vessel ever built can pass nnder, thus disposing with the draw. ' ' " ' A well known stenmboatman of St. Louis recently illustrated his knowledge of the river, to a group of river re porters, by affirming that he could take a boat down the river the darkest night imaginable, simply by knowing the barks of the different d ogs on each side of the river. A disgusted steamboat captain writes from New Orleans, that on Inmling at that port he is obliged to run the gaunt let of tarpaulin men, skid men", coopers whatchmen, depot watchmen, draymen, boss draymen, whisky inspectors, run ners, inspectors of steamboats, cabmen, hucksters, negro thieves, white thieves, carpet-baggera. carpenters, sugar import ers, truckmen. That's the way steam boating is systematized. ' ' The elegant steamer Silver Bow will pass down at 4 p.m. to-day for Jefferson, Shreveport and all landings - on Red River. Capt. Washington, her agent, will receive freight up to the hour of her arrival. The gay steamer Commercial is now at the wharf loading and will depart at S p.m. this day, for Cairo, Evansville and Louisville, making all way landings. The Commercial has excellent passenger accommodations and is in every respect a No. 1 vessel. R. W. Lightburne, 296 Front street, is her agent. By reference to our steamboat col umns, shippers and passengers will see that the magnificent steamer Mary Boyd, Rube Haines, master, leave to-day at five p.m. for Pine Bluff, Little Rock and all way landings on the Arkansas river, connecting at Little Rock with light- draught steamers for points above, as ell as with the stages for Hot Springs. The Boyd ia the United States mail packet, and will depart promptly as ad vertised. Tha attention of passengers and ship pers is called to Captain Bowman's card in another column, announcing that his steamer, the elegant and swift St. Fran cis, will leave aa usnal at five p m. to day for Helena and all points on the St. Francis, connecting at the mouth of L'Anguille river with the light-draught steamer Rhoda for points above. The SL Francis is one of tbe best steamers coming to this port, and thoae who travel on her are sure to be pleased. STEAMBOATS. -ITMary Miller, rT Lhxr. Maatar; StvrUJcn.
