In addition to the above open letters, there were two sealed notes on the table likewise one or Colonel M. L. Perkins and another for Captain Brett. Colonel Perkins' letter was one of business, but in it Mr. Kimbel bid him farewell. Cap tain Brett did not open the letter ad dressed to him, believing that it was not intended to be read until after the death of the writer. At one o'clock p.m. Mr. Kimbel was still In an unconscious con dition, aod believed to be dying. Mr. Kimbel is an old citizen of Memphis, having been here for over twenty years, and is a native of North Alabama. At one period of his life he owned a large amount of property in Memphis, but subsequently lost nearly all of it, owing to financial difficulties. He has been married twice; the last marriage proved an unhappy one, his wife, a Kentucky lady, having separated from him about five years since. The cause of the rash attempt can only be ascribed to family troubles and a mind diseased, for which ho remedy can be administered. Edwin E.

There are no changes of importance to note In monetary circles to-day ; the banks gener ally report a somewhat closer situation, owing to the large amounts of cotton awaiting ship ment, and soma are obliged to supply them selves with currency by the sale of exchange; this is only temporary, however, and will soon be remedied, as increased facilities for ship ments are probable within the next few days.
