Magazines from all points, illus trated weeklies of every description, nnd foreign papers and periodicals received regularly. We h ve been requested to call the at tention of the police to the system of horse breaking ennied on on Second street, near Union. Unbroken horses hitched to a wagon or hack are liable at any moment to run over citizens moving about in this locality. The public streets is not the place for horso taming. A young white girl was before the Re corder to-day on the charge of severely stabbing and cutting with a pocket knife another white girl, a resident of the Jef ferson block, on Second street. The wounds received by the girl during the row are said to be severe arid dangerous. The youthful criminal was bound over. The citizens residing on the Pigeon Roost rOad complain loudly about the dead cattle on the roadside immediately beyond the Dunn place. Quito a num ber of dead horses and cows has of late been dragged out to this point in the night time by unknown persons. The Sanitaiy force is iuvitod to smell out the aiTair and the authorities are solicited to apprehend the nuisance creators as toon as possible. The health of the neighborhood will be materially affected f these putrrd carcases are not removed at once. . i It is si quaint old belief that tho Gov ernment ought to protet't life by means of law, but it does not do so in Memphis.

Ono of the boys, Abe .Isaacs, took hold of the little child, aged fonr years, and said he would throw him overboard. The woman re plied " that is what she came there to do," nnd took np the child and hurled him into the river. She was about to jump in herself when young Isaacs caught her and prevented the rash act, Others standing near by held the woman while young Isaacs ran down to the end of tho wharf-boat, swung over and seized the child as it was floating by, thereby saving its life. The unfortunato woman stated she had a worthless, drunken hus band, who failed to provide for her, and she had determined to leave the world . Anajnata Convention.

Thero has been little if any change in the financial situation since our last weekly review. As a general rule tho different banks report an increase in the demand for monoy, but assert that up to the present time they have not refused accommodation to . their customers, charging tho same rates of interest they did earlier in the season, which are 10 to 12 per cent. In the open market the rates range from 1J to 2J per cent per month. i , Exchange is in moderate request and offerings are more liberal. We hear of transactions between banks to-day at a premium. For commercial bills, par is tho counter buying rate and e is charged on Eastern and Northern drafts. ' The movement in coin has been ex ceedingly light until to-day, when offer ings of both gold and silver are largo. We note purchases of $0800 gold nt 111, nnd $500 silver halves and quar ters at 107. In New York tho premium is steady at 112). Scrips, uncurrent money, bonds and stocks have been unusually quiet during the week,' with but limited offerings of securities and consequently but few transactions. Several lots of Arkansas levee bonds wore on the market to-day on which bids of 38 to 38jc were mode without transactions, and other lots were offered as collateral. Memphis city in debtedness is steady at 59 to COc for the long currency sixes, and 04 to C5c for the gold issue, with none of cither offer ing. Past due coupons are steady, at 79 to 80c. Bank of Tennessee money is bought nt 8C to 87c, and sold at 89 to 90c. County warrants are nominal at 85 to 87c. Cotton, The movement during the week has been extremely light, and prices have gradually declined until Saturday, when sales did not exceed 50 bales. To-day thero are more buyers in the market than on Saturday, and sellers are anxious to realize There were sales of small lots only to-day, footing up in all about 50 bales, at 10 to 12c. for low ordi nary, and ordinary, lie; and the best bids for tho better grades were 15J for low middling, and 1CJ for middling, Receipts to-day are 164; shipments, 87, Receipts for the week are 94f, ship ments 10S9 and snleB 410, against 838 roceived, 799 shipped and 1175 sold last week. Total receipts to date are 513,888 bales and shipments 509,558, against 280,910 received and 284,676 shipped during the corresponding period last season. The stock on hand to-day is 4X10. Last year at this time it was 4 158. One year ago to-day gold was 117 in New York, nnd middling cotton was 191c, and at Liverpool uplands was 8gd to Bd. Middling cotton here was 18c.

In almost every leading branch of business trade, has shown gome improve ment during the past week, and not- ithstanding that during the lat ter part of the week, business slacked up a little; that done earlier in the week wns more than sufficient to make the week's trade larger than during the week previous. In dry goods there has been, as yet, no advance here in prices, al though in Eastern markets the leading prints and staple goods have advanced, our leading merchants continue to sell all classca of goods at Eastern rates. In boots and ehoes a fair amount of busi ness lias been done, and as in dry goods, there has as yet been no advance; stocks i East are reported light from the fact that Southern and Western merchants have purchased largely, nearly draining the Eastern markets. Illustrative of this fact it is only necessary to add that three of our largest dealers have, during the past month, purchased for this market upward of six thousand cases of boots and shoes, and others have purchased in proportion. The hardware trade, though perhaps not so aotive, will compare fa vorably with that done during any cor responding week since the war; prices as a general rule, remain unchanged, In the general market the principal fea tures wero a marked decline in provi sions, grain and feed, with a slight ad vance in coffee, and a better feeling in flour. To-day the feeling in provisions is better, especially in bacon, owing to a firmer feeling in other markets; sales of 15 casks clear sides were made this mor ning at 8c, but later in the day the cash price was 8Jc to the city trade; shoul ders and clear rib sides aro nominally CJ to 7Jc; sugar-cured hams are quiet but more steady at 14 to 16c, as to brand; mess pork was sold at $14, which is the general cash price to-day; break fast bacon is dull and nominal. Bagging is quiet, with sales to-day of 220 pieces hemp and flax 2 and 2 pounds at 20 to 21c. Bacon is dull, with offerings to ar rive at $17, and light sales at that figure. Butter is quiet, with a fair supply at 21 to 22c for choice, and common at 15 to 18c. Cottonseed is in light supply and fair demand at $9 per ton. . A telegram from New York, to-day announces the stock of coffee in that market as rapidly diminishing, nnd prices advanced c; this is doubtless partly the result "of an advance in tho gold premium, nnd more to a combination or "ring" that is started there among holders about this time every year, when Southern and Western merchants are in the market as buyers. Corn is in fair supply, and can be bought to arrive at COc for white shelled. Oats are dull, with light sales at 4Gc and offer iagB at 45c. Hay is quiet, with choice timothy scarce at $27, and common to good mixed at $22 to $24. Corn meal is dull at $3 10 to arrive, or $3 15 deliv ered. Eggs are now in liberal supply and prices a shade, lower; sales to-day of 246 dozen nt 20c, and other transactions at 19 to 20c, which were the rates paid at the time of the closing of the market. Flour opened dull during the early part of the week, but prices rallied somewhat and to-day rates are $5 to 7 50 for super to choice family, with sales of 120 barrels late to-day at $5 50 to 7 90 for medium to choice family. Onions are in moderate supply at i 50 to 2 75. Potatoes are scarce, with sales at the depot at $.1 50, and from store at $3 75 to $1. Lemons nre in good supply, at $6 to $7, as to quality. Poultry is firmer, with sales of full-grown and old chfekens at $4 50 to $5, and young at $3 to $4. , Sugnr and molasses are firm and unchanged. High- wines are dull, with a decline of 3o in other markets and a corresponding de cline here. Sales aro reported at 90c, whereas lost week they were reported at 90c. Whisky nnd wines nre quiet and unchanged. Other articles are unchanged. From store on orders prices ara as follows : Biootno Is steady at 1922'ta for hemp and flax.
