Makt persons who tnke tbe Public Ledger complain of the late hour at which it reaches them. We regret this hut find it difficult to find a remedy We endeavor to get to press at two o'clock, but the late arrival of our diB patches renders that impracticable. At all events we will do the best we can, as suring our readers that the later the pa' per the more interesting it will be. SNOWED UPON IT. Thanksgiving da; and snow came to gether. As the Government at Wash ington has taken the weather in charge and manages zero generally, may it not have forecast the day the snow would fall, and popped Thanksgiving down on it? Or may not the elements have snowed upon so hollow a mockery as Thanksgiving in this latitude for. what the Government had done for the peo ple? Perhaps the refugees of Carolina slept in the snow on Wedneeday night, and bad upon their uncovered heads yes terday the storm, while the bugles of their - pursuers sounded in their ears. The " beautiful snow" is a good thing to look npon, but too much of it is not wholesome. Our poor outcasts from their families cannot help but think of the happy days who J tbe laugh and the frolic went round and the sleigh bells ran g so sweetly. Poor fellows! Those pleasant days with them are over. Tbe wrath of a merciless government is pur suing them. THE EADICAL WAY. An exchange says a " Union Soldier " writes from South Carolina to bis nncle in New York that " a seedy wreteh, who five years ago bad not garments to pro tect bim in a cooler climate, is now the State Treasurer, and stole flOO.OOO in one season from the fund to buy lands for tbe landless." It is not surprising to Cnd that this " wretch" is now the owner of eighteen thousand acres of tillable land. In discussing the financial affairs of South Carolina, the New York Na tion (Radical) says this State Treasurer (Niles G. Parker) kept a bar in Haver hill, Mass., before tbe war. He entered the army, settled as a carpet-bagger in , Charleston, opened another grocery, " went into politics," was made an Al derman, cultivated tbe negro, failed in business, paid thirty cents on the dollar, rose rapidly in politics, became State Treasurer, and is now reputed to be worth a million, and has plenty of dia monds. Put behind such men the most corrupt and ignorant Legislature that ever caricatured free government in a civilized State, and we se. wby tbe finances of the State are in so embar rassed as condition as recent develop ments show. THE STOKES CASE. It is wrong for the newspapers, that every one reads, to prejudge a case that is pending in a court of justice. But it is quite clear from the dispatches concern ing the arraignment of Stokes for fraud on the Government, that he will have no easy road to travel. ..The evidence is strong, if not conclusive. If it be proved that he did things that the law prohibits; if it be proved that he de frauded the Government to the amount of sixty thousand dollars, why should be not be convicted like any other criminal? And this is tbe man who did not think that men who love their native land should vote nor hold office, because they bad been engaged in a great war, or sympathized with its cause. This pattern of loyalty, this plumed bird of the mountains, may come out through a whitewashing machine, but people will always think that such a man was the last one who should have been prescrip tive. BLOODY CTJBA. It is a serious offense in Havana to de molish a grate. Some time since some students, mere youths, demolished the grave of Gonzalo Caatanon. They were arrested, tried by court-martial and con demned. Eight of Ibem were recently shot, but tbe majority were sentenced to imprisonment This Cuban government is a bloody spot in the civilization of the age. It is a nuisance among nations. and should be abolished. K w. bad a government that could elevate its mind above a gift, or a sore-tailed colt, tbe thing would be done. The slaughter of tbe human race goes on rapidly enough among themselves. But when govern merits, f M trivial offenses, commence the work it is time to look for a remedy. Cuba, as now governed, is of no earthly nse to the world. Humanity cries out against it when it murders school boys fnr foolish cranks. But what does this government care? WAR WITH BPAIW. Tbe last sensation is a probable war between the L'nited States and Spain Americans have been shamefully treated in Cuba. They have been kicked through the streets by tbe volunteers, and other wise maltreated; they bare been driven out of Havana. It was telegraphed the other day. that the Americans there needed the immediate protection of the American Government. And so a fleet of American war steamers is bearing down on Havana to demand reparation. PsasoNswho have bad any connec tion with the fraudoieot issue of rail road bonds are to b punished if a bill introduced in the House on Wednesday Tbe latest sensation is war with Spain. The result will not be uncertain. But what effect will it have ou tbe Cuban rebellion? We imagine that a new swarm of carpet-baggers are stuffing their bags for a trip to Cuba, in antici pation of its conquest, and tbe good stealing to be got there. The Great Ben Hill, of Georgia, an nounces that Hector is dead. - That is true. When a boy we folbwed bim in his chase of raccoons, opossums, etc. But now he is no more. We saw him quietly laid to rest at the foot of the Red mountain, in Jefferson county, Ala. Prosskh is to be acquitted, on the groidfcl that bis offense was committed four days after the expiration ot ws term as a member of Congress. Let not the guiltless suffer, but go strong for the guilty. Four days, eh? Jddue Nelson having resigned his seat on tbe bench of the Supreme Court, the Governor has appointed Mr. James T. Shields to take his place. The snow lies beautifully on the Nio olson pavement, and the Tribune lies splendidly on the Ku-Klux. Misbis'sifpi is very quiet after the late election. And so we shall be after our municipal contest is over. Dak Bicki.es, the American Minister to Spain, has got married to a Miss Creach. Poor thing. What we do not intend to do rage, froth and become furious about the mu nicipal election. I A just Government the largest lib erty for one part and the smallest liberty for the other. , Where is the solution of the mayor altv imbrozlio? In the bands of the people. . The glory of Grant's administration Ku-Kluxing the South. LATEST TELEGRAMS. BstMlala t She Ledger. AvaaiOAir rasa. Asaoounos, via s. r. A TSLseaAra uujtrAii. WASHINGTON'. Washijtotox, December 1. Affairs in LCuba have been discussed in political circles, and one hears on every sid. a sentiment of horror expressed at the outrageous barbarity of the volunteers in demanding tbe execution of the med ical students. The general convictioa is expressed that tbe United States Gov ernment ought at least to make a strong protest. Some very severe criticisms are passed upon the present condition of our navy. It is asserted that we cannot be said to have at our disposal now anything more than a fleet fit for coast duty. Senators and members of tbe House e arriving and a quorum of both houses will probably be here on Satur day. Speaker Blaine is expected Sat urday, but whether he will announce the committees before the second week in the session is not known. Nearly all tbe reports of heads of de partments and chiefs of bureaus are completed. The President's message is finished, and will be read at the cabinet meeting to morrow. Reports be sent to the President as heretofore, in advance of their delivery to Congress, but are not to be published until that time. Tbe President's message being in manuscript, will be telegraphed. The President and heads of departments give no intimation whatever of its con tents. There was considerable excitement here yesterday which grew out of a re port that the Terror, on arriving at Ha vana, had been forbidden to pass Moro Castle and bad resented the insult by firing on the fortress. It is well known that a large number 'of Spanish war ves sels, among them the corvette built in American yards, are constantly in the harbor at Havana, and the entrance itself is exceedingly narrow and strongly defended. HEVT YORK. New Yore, December 1. The Grand Duke and suite attended Thanksgiving service at the Greek Church yesterday. All present remained standing through out the entire services. He visits West Point to-day, where he will be formally received by the military officers of the post and cadets. He will, as asual, be accompanied by tbe Citizens' Reception Committee and also by a few invited guests. Numerous French Radical Republi cans in this city have issued a call for a mass meeting for tbe purpose of protest ing against the execution of General Rossel, Communist, by their Govern ment. Mr. Charles O'Connor, who was ap plied to by the citizens of York county, 3. C, to defend persons now in prison in that county under the Ku-Klux law, has declined to act as counsel in their defense. Ex-Controller Connolly has beea al lowed the use of Warden Tracer's apartments in the Ludlow street jail, and has been visited by numerous friends since his incarceration. General Arthur took possession of the Collector's office, and Murphy retired without ceremony. The new Collector re-appointed all the deputies. LOIISYILLE. Locisvillk, December 1. Thomas W. Lindecam, distributing clerk at toe post office here was arrested by a detective this morning while in the act of staliug letters from tbe mail, and eleven letters from various ports were found on his person. For some time it has been known to tbe postoflic authorities that stealing from tbe mails was going on at this office, several letters of value having been asissed, Detectives were placed at work with the above result. SEW ORLEANS. New Orlcans, December I.

One of the wounded is not expected to recover, but the Oilier received only a slight flesh wound. ' Cheeney, after the shooting, surrendered himself to the Captain, who, on arriving at this port, gave bim in charge of the police. The origin of the difficulty was in regard to some remarks made by Cheeney about a stolen coat. CONNECTICUT. . , i " Greenwich, December 1. The Ameri can Club House at Indian Point has been seized by tbe deputy sheriff 'under an execution procured by Fitch, the builder, of Norwalk. It is supposed the movement is simply to protect the property from seizure in New York, by suits against the ring. ' FOREIUX. ' London, December 1. The Prince of Wales passed rather a restless and nn. easy night, the fever being slightly in. creased. The Medical Bulletin, issued from Handring HouBe this morning, an nounces his condition less favorable than yesterday,' and apprehends immediate danger from the change. The Earl of Chesterfield died yester day from typhus fever after short ill ness. - Brussels, November SO. The open ing of a new boulevard in this city to day was made the occasion of a renewal of the disturbances of the past week. The people, who had assembled to the number, of several thousand, displayed great hostility toward several Govern ment oflicials who war. present, and who had made themselves obnoxious to the populace by their action in regard to ministerial troubles. . A detachment of the civie guard was ordered to dis perse the crowd, but the soldiers refused to proceed against the people, and open ly fraternized .with the citizens, con. siderable excitement still prevails in the city. ' Vienna. November 30. Count An- drossy, the newly selected Premier, has issued a circular defining tbe policy to ti nnraned bv the new ministry. The peaceful policy of his predecessor, Von Banst. Count ' Androssy says, will be closely followed. Marseilles, November 30. Mr. Cra- mieux, convicted of being a leader in the late Communist agitation, was exe cuted this morning. The condemned man conducted himself firmly, and met his fate with apparent resignation. Of "Professors," one of our ex changes, the Goodman Star, says with truth, that perhaps there is no word in our langnage more shamefully abused in its application to men than the word "professor." It is applied indiscrimi nately to every strolling showman, to every peripatetic vendor of patent med icines, to every perambulatiug curer of corns and bunions, to every honored head of a literary institution and the manager-in-chief of every scientific or ganization, tivery teecner oi a nine school, who rules witn a Dircnen rou, the destinies of some fifteen or twenty dirty-faced children, is now dubbed a professor, ana tne result is, me rain swarms with them. Our neighbor of Jefferson street comes to the front this morning to apologize for the Cincinnati capitalists who, are making preparations to saddle en this community w water monopoly, -coupled with the further purpose of destroying the present gas company, and setting op in its stead an institution possessing all tbe odious features we were so lamil- iar with in the halcyon days of Thomp son Dean and his man Fitch. Our posi tion is plain and simple: We are for protecting Memphis capital and Mem phis people against Cincinnati extortion Tbe works of the present company are ample and sufficient to supply the city; the quality of the gas is superior to that any other company can introduce; hence there is no more necessity for other gas works than Mrs. Toodles had for a sec ond-hand door plate. Now, if Mrs, Toodles' investment was a good one, so also will be a useless gas works. The Cincinnati canital will ! be of the same character as that .invested by the same parties in shot and shell, to be fired into this city. Both ar. devices wherewith to extort money. The one kind of iron enabled our enemies to pos sess our towns and cities, subvert our in stitutions, and quarter npon os herds of hungry vermin to eat op our substance; the other will compass the same end. Instead of carpet-bag rulers in public places we will have them in private cor porations; in any event our tribute mnst be forthcoming. Our neighbor asserts that the Cincinnati company is in the bands of Memphis people; we challenge the assertion, and ask in all candor and fairness that he print the stock list of that company, and let us see whether he or we be right If there be a sufficient amount of bona JiJe Memphis capital aot mere names in the institution to control it, and it caa be so shows to as, we will withdraw our objections. Frankly, we do not believe any such thing exists; otherwise, why has a delay of nearly two years occurred since the injunction was dissolved allowing Don ovan to Proceed? Because there was no local capital to be had fcr the adventure, and one Cincinnati shark would not in-tM-fen with another. But as soon as Dean vacates his place in tbe old rao- nootr. then, as a matter of course, the game is proper and right, and down swoops the Northern hawk to his prey. An objection to having forced npon ns use less gas mains and works, for which we will have to pay. and which will call for mthdraral cf Memphit cajrilal, can- not be warped into an objection to the invitation of legitimate capital from abroad, whether that capital be iq money or muscle but, if yon please, we want no spare gas pipes, second-hand coffins or door plates. - Ml. Aadrew'a Kalrty. The sons of old Scotia held their an neal meeting at Cochran Hall last eve ning. The officers elect were installed as follows by Mr. David M. .Philp. mas ter of ceremonies: President, Mr. Gil bert McLean; first Vice President, Col. G. W. Alexander; second Vice Presi dent, David P. Goldsmith; Physician, Dr. Allen Stirling Treasurer, Duncan McLean; Secretary, John B. Campbell; Librarian, A. H. Brown; Board of Mar- urn. H. Lemon. H. T. Tomlinson. Alex- lander Tocher, W. W. riiohnLZ&t C. Farias. Immediately after th inter- society and invited guests repaired to the banquet hall. The good things terres tial were eaten, the time-honored " hot Scotch" was drunk and speeches were made in response to the regular toasts, as follows: "The tay We Celebrate,!' Mr. David M, Philp; " The Queen," CM. A. H. Douglass; " The President of the United States," Judge M. L. Perkins; " The Laud We Left and the Land We Live In," Mr. Duncan'MoLean'"The; Poets, Heroes and Statesmen of Scot land," Mr.LvB, McFarland; "The Me chanic's' of Memphis,"' Mr. Marshall'; " Our SUle SocIetlesoTrAlexandcr; " The Press," Capt. J. Harvey Matbes; " The Ladies,'1' Mr. W. Young. The banquet closed at a late hour, and the guests retired, overcome by the pleasing recollections of the feast AmaaesneaUs. Memphis Theater. The Royal Sat sums Japanese Troupe attracts large audiences to the theater'every evening. The performance given by these chil dren from the land of the Tycoon and Dnimios Is of a most interesting and en tertaining character. The girls,pf Yeddo, whom Train deoribes so - graphically, perform each evening on the swinging bamboo poles and wire rope, the latter performance being wonderful, the walker traversing, whirling and lying down on wire rope and using an umbrella as a balance-pole. The legerdemain tricks are novelties in this clime, while the bamboo, ladder, top-whirling and top spinning tricks are superior to anything exhibited by any other troupe. The everlasting fun is nsed on all occasions and under all circumstances by these descendants of tbe Mongol Tartars. The "Japs" will give a grand entertainment this evening, a matinee to-morrow, and will close their engagement in this city to-morrow night. ' The Mom-TON Concerts. The East ern musical critics became enraptured with this charming cantatrice, who will sing at the Memphis Theater on next Monday and Tuesday nights. Her recent concert at Steinway Hall, New York, is described by a Sun reporter aB follows The entrance of Mrs. Charles Moulton upon the professional life of a vooalist, from a social point of view, was an event of sufficiently sienal importance to Krinff trio-ether at Steinwav Hall on Mon day evening a great number of those who make op the most cultivated and rf fined class of society in this city. It was such an audience ai gathers only on rare occasions, called together by some name held in special honor and esteem. No amateur in private life, whether in thia -itv nr ahroad. has received, it is safe to say, such homage as has Mrs. Moulton. ' Until now she has never brought herself within the rightful sphere of criticism, and has, of course, received fmm anpietv nnthini? but Praise. And that this has been deserved no one who heard her on Monday evening can doubt A more rharniine drawing-room singer the most captious listener could not de sire to hear. Neither is there anything left to be desired in the matter of vocal ization. Ascending and descending the scales' were never song with a more deli cate ease and finish than by her. The true Italian method and the Italian voice, as well, are there. Indeed, she p a most rare singer, and, within her lim its, well nigh perfect Broom's. The manager of the Jeffer son street Opera House manages to fill his house nightly by presenting a fine programme for the amusement of his guests. '. Tbe performance to-night will consist of comic and sentimental songs, clog dances, lightning vocal changes, gems from the ballet and sensational dramas, never presented before in this city. ' Miaa. Lucy Adams, character and change vocalist, has left Memphis to fulfill an engagement in New Orleans. Miss Adams is very attractive, and in her lightning character changes 'she gives a pure, graceful and piquant per formance, and on that account, wherever she appears, is entitled to large attend ance and warm appreciation. Miss Adams has the good fortune to possess an elegant ptrtonel and costumes splen didly. If we understand the lady's am bition aright it will cause her to emulate tbe success obtained by many of the most celebrated burlesque actresses. Olympic Varieties. The old Wash ington street theater, with Its brilliant calcium 'light, flourishes under the pop ular Manager Lusk, who knows so well how to cater to the public taste. The programme for this evening is filled with rare attractions which will not fail to secure a full house. Everybody is in vited to attend the Olympic this evening. A new version of the Can-Can will be presented. ' GREENS la thlt city, yenterday. at the rniid.no of U. C. Moor.wi.sof eoatamp tion, Mr. Jahu t. Humus. Mii 4W year.
