Richard is himself again ever an excellent man, and now still more excellent. Bright be the star, Richard, that shall guide you and your bride long, tenderly, surely and upward. It is amusing to see how some persons get tangled up in law-suits. A little case before a justice, involving two dol lars, is discussed in an able mannerfor sev eral (hours by two attorneys. The case is decided; appealed to the Law Court; continued several times; tried; again decided; a new trial granted; continued; tried and decided again, and probably taken up to the Supreme Court to go through the same process.1 The costs amount to about fifty dollars, and the at torneys must be paid; all of which could have been avoided by paying two dollars at the outset.

Yesterday a woman named Annie Grady was found in a house on Front street, between Washington and Poplar streets, suffering intensely from a knife wound received by her at the hands of a roustabout named Larry Gibbons. Offi cers Hicks and Clements investigated the case, and learned that Gibbons, after abusing the woman, drew a large pocket knife and drove it into ber back, the blade reaching the lungs. Gibbons was found by the officers in an adjoining room, and he made a desperate resist ance. He attempted to draw his fatal knife, but one of the officers knocked him down with a pistol and prevented such a movement. He bad to be tied on a dray and hauled to the station-house. Gibbons is a rough customer and des perate character. He was examined be fore Recorder Scales this morning, and sent to jail iu default of bonds in the sum of $5000 on the charge of assault and battery with intent to kill.

Miss Jennie Engel and Miss' Minute Jackson sang several charming duets, and were re peatedly encored. A graud feature of the performance was the character act ing of Messrs. " Sheridan and Mack. Their acting, "make up" and singing of the "Memphis. Belle, "The Nerves" and " You'll Hear No Noise" was loudly and deservedly "applauded, , The rapid and complete changes in each persona tion, combined -with 'the ringing end dancing, prove these actors 'to be first class artists in their line of business, and certainly the., best- that have ever ap peared on the Memphis-boards.
