THE FABTT 1ASH. The war between the Grant riuu an the. TrumbuH-Sumner-Shur ' rina of the Radical BartV has Brown 10 hot that a fierce war is to be made by the former on all office-holders sympathiz' in with the latter. Grant's Washing ton orean says: Many officeholders have been corrupted with the prevalent cant of the narty whip, and need whip ping back into the traces. It is notorious that persons favored with the confidence and best gifts of the administration have been decidedly shaky in their allegiance to the Republican organization that has made those lugrates so fat that they have kicked out all discipline. There have been patience and long suffering, and we believe the largest liberty; but there must be a limit to all things, and men sustaining the defection of Shurz, Sumner & Co. must chose quickly whom they intend to follow and serve. , Trea son to party cannot be permitted among ' men holding place right here under the shadow of the capitol. Good nature and sufferance toward such men is most imbecile, and can no longer be admitted as wisdom. Men can change coats no longer easily and comfortably; bat they must not be permitted to wear our party uniform while holding commuunication with the enemy. A CANDIDATE OUT. ' ' On Thursday last the National Labor convention, sitting at Columbus, Ohio, nominated Judge Davis, of the supreme court, for President, and Joel Parker, of New Jriey, for Vice President. Judge Davis has for some time been favorably spoken of by the Liberals as a candidate. He accepts. It would prove a happy de liverance from the evils that afflict ui, if such a man as Judge Davis could he elected President. If the Liberal con vention at Cincinnati shall nominate him, the Democracy will rally to his support without regard to platform, and without asking any questions. -Some ultra Democratic would-be leaders possi bly may prefer Grant, but they cannot carry the people with them. The truth is, the Democracy have no leaders now. They have suffered long, and honeyed words will not cure the wrongs they en dure. They know it, and the men who once led them have no more influence with them at this trisis, than the men who did not lead them have. CHTJBCH DISESTABLISHMENT. The New York Herald is sanguine that the " Irish disestablishment has given an impetus to the agitation for a disestablishment in the sister island which cannot long be resisted, especially as the proposition involves the dismissal of a horde of lazy ecclesiastical blood suckers, and the saving of from fifteen to twenty millions of dollars a year to the national treasury. Thus step by step, England is on the road to the ' di vine rights' of the people, and no hedg ing by Her Majesty's government on the Alabama claims will serve to arrest this revolutionary movement." This is de cidedly Heraldish. Nothing bat a revo lution greater than ha taken place for years can accomplish so great a result. THK ISCOMK TAX. A Washington dispatch says: The treasury department has given the nec essary instructions for the collection of the income tax for 1871; and the asses sors of this district to-day commenced to distribute blanks for the assessment. The rate, as is well known, is two and a half per cent! on all income above two thousand dollars per annum, from which may be also deducted all State, national and municipal taxes, losses during the year, and losses on real estate since December 31, 16C7; also rent paid for homestead, for usual repairs, for inter est, and interest of dividends from which a tax has been withheld. The 'special taxes on pianos, watches, etc., were abolished last year, and not included, as heretofore, in the assessment. A TALTJABLK WOBK. The Teachers' National Publishing Association, New Yorkr has sent ut a copy of the Educational Year Book for 1872. It is a baud-book of reference con taining a digest of American public school laws, and interesting matters pertaining to schools and colleges, ranging from pro fessional anecdotes to educational sta tistics.

The Tribune, speaking of the minority report of the Ku-Klux committee, says it is conclusive agaiust the locust-like officials (carpet-baggers) of the South. It adds: "Misrule and corruption have combined" with ruffianism and brutal mob-law to make the South uninhabit able. Day after day and week after week, the crumbling fabrics of 'these fraudulent political structures have at tested the truth of all that the Tribune said long ago of the carbet-baggers, If the end of the Ku-Klux "hall come with that of the thieves, it will be well for the whole country." That many of the accidents fatal to life oa railways, in consequence of broken rails, could be averted by diminishing the speed, is beyond cavil. The St. Louis Republican soys that midwinter acci dents on railroads will not be seriously diminished in number until -a general arrangement is effected between the com oaniel for reducing considerably the running time during the cold season.- If this was done throughout the country, business and travel would learn to ac commodate themselves to the new regime, and the inconvenience would be only temporary. A letter from Berlin, Prussia, to the Baltimore Sun, states that a spirit of speculation is taVing possession of the staid people of that great capital of a million inhabitants, somewhat similar to that which affected us towards the close of our late civil war. Most of the neces saries of life have, within a few months, advanced there twenty-five to fifty per cent. Real estate, in speculative sec tions, has gone up one hundred per cent, within a year. The World sayB: It is asserted by geologists that this city is gradually sinking at he rate of seventeen inches n a century, so that in the course of time a few lots on the top of Murray Hill will constitute all tbo terra firms of Gotham. It is doubtless the knowledge that in a few brief centuries the Fourth avenue railway tracks will thus be inex pensively depressed, so as to place no body but the little fishes in danger. Illinois has taken to investigating. A committee of inquiry into the man agement of the State penitentiary report that during the past three ' years 'there have been expenditures for that institu tion to the amount of $1X7,000, for which there are no vouchers anywhere. The Proarresa ut Hemphla. Memphis is rapidly becoming the great cotton center of the world. Its trade and commerce are increasing at a ratio unknown ia other cities, and it wilt soon be the greatest crossing point on the Mississippi river, from the tide of travel and commerce between the Kast and the far West over the Southern Pacific rail road. Eastern capitalists, merchants and manufacturers are turning their eyes in the direction of the Bluff City, for already its location and advantages areiotbem clearly perceptible. . With an eye to this fact, and the rapidly in creasing trade of our city, Messrs. Finkle & Lyon's manufacturing company had established an agency at No -10 Court street some months since, but were forced by increasing , business to hunt np some more adaptable loca tion. The company has removed its agency at No. 223 Main street, where the celebrated "Victor" sewing ma chines of the company can be examined by the public. The " Victor" standi unapproachable for simplicity, great range of work, and ease of adjustment The manufacturers have fitted up an ele gant room, and their agent, Mr. L. C. McAllister, is receiving daily from the company's works the Victor machines of every style and pattern. This speaks well for ear city and the induce ments presented by us to Eastern manu facturers to locito in our midst. LATEST.TELEGRAMS.

Imperial Prussian army have received orders from the war office to hold themselves fully equipped and in readiness .to , move immediately when dirsotcd. The reason is found in the great and unusual activity now per vading the French political circles at Versailles, and consequent apprenen si on on the part of Germany of the pos sible occurrence of a sudden change not only in the ministry but in the form of the government of France. Prussia reserves to, herself the right to judge of and pronounce on any new government which may succeed that of Thiers , as to whether such new government is likely to execute the treaty of peace and discharge the' French obligations to Germany., Should ' Prussia decide un favorobly another invasion of France will follow. . .

SJiVY YORK. New York, February 21. It is assert ed that there are now affidavits in pos session of the committee of seventy which criminate Police Superintendent Kelso, in conjunction with the notorious William He nn easy Cook, who was ac cessory to ' the voucher robbery, for which Haggertyand Batch were indicted at the general session of the grand jury. Railroad Accident on the Louisville r .I Short Line.. Cincinnati, February 2X A terrible accident becurred on the Louisville and Cincinnati Short Xine railroad yester day, about thirty miles from this city. The Lightning Express train, consisting of two passenger cars, baggage and ex press car, left Louisville at eight a.m., with about sixty passengers, and ,as it was crossing what is known as the Ten Mile Bridge, the bridge gave way, throw ini the passenger cars, baggage and ex press cars and tender down twenty-five feet. Two persons were killed outright and fifty-three others wounded. ,-.r .. i ' 1 ' - ' Scandalous A Hair. Baltimore, February 24. This city was thrown into great excitement to-day by the fact being made public that Rev. L. D. Horton, minister of one of h most 'fashionable Methodist Episcopal churches of Baltimore, had fled the city, having accomplished the ruin of a num ber of young 'ladies, members of bis flock. . He U represented as being an able and eloquent preacher, attracted large audiences, and was highly re spected previous to the facts being made known. He left a wife and family be hind him. j?7 ;. 'A1, PoerYerlekl" Since the city authorities ad the crim inal court have determined to suppress gambling or to regulate it so that it cannot hereafter be carried on as publicly as any legitimate business, many members of the sporting fraternity sit and weep like Marius over the ruins of their Car thage, or.bave gathered up their lares and penates in the shape of chips and faro boxes, cut cards, keno traps, and have left the bluffs without casting even one " longing, lingering look behind " except when the police were in sight Keno, probably the most dangerous, se ductive and pernicious game ever intro duced into Memphis, has been driven into the suburbs of the city, where it ekes out a precarious existence beneath the light of a dark lantern. Faro, the royal game, the lineal defend ant of the Egyptian monarch, still rears its crest in onr midst, but not in the gorgeous and flaunting style of yore. Behind belts and bars, and guarded by pickets, it is always in a condition to re treat on the first alarm. Gambling at the faro table, like many other social evils, cannot be entirely suppressed so long as this world hold together, . Judge flippin, of our criminal court, has en acted a rule that will go far to relieve Memphis of a crowd of " sports" who have drifted into our city from St. Louis, Chicago and other points. Heretofore when a gambler was found guilty on an indictment and fined, he generally escaped both imprisonment and fine by taking the insolvent debtor's oath the ten days' notice (daring which time he would, according to law, have had to remain in jail) bring gen erally waived by the attorney general. Consequently the "sport" walked into court after the conviction, and while wearing a heavy gold watch and chain, diamond pin and studs, A hundred dol lar suit of nobby clothes, took the insol vent debtor's oath, swearing to his pov erty and pauperism, and marched out a free man, to engage again in his "brace' and confidence games in a few hours. Judge Flippia has ordered the clerk of t his court not to enter op the judgments j in such cases until the fine and costs are paid. This order is followed by an execution, which if not settled, acta as a highway to the county jail. No wonder the new rule causes a hegira from the Mecca of Memphis to some out of the way Medina. AnainMSM. Memphis Theater. Lotta'i benefit last night attracted a larger audience than ever before assembled within the walls of the theater. A galaxy of beauty adorned the dress-circle and parquette, and gentlemen stood in the aisles as closely packed as sardines in a box The play, Heart's-Ease, never before presented in Memphis, was admirably suited to Lotta's attractive ana capti vating style of acting. She was admir ably, supported by Mr. Ketchum and other members of the company; At the matinee to-day Lotta will appear in the Little Detective, aad this evening in Heart's-Ease, which will be her closing performance in Memphis. The Bandmanns. Next Monday Mr. and Mrs. Bandmann, sterling actors, will commence an engagement at the Memphis Theater and will present dur ing the week such dramatic treats as Narcisse, Richlieu, Hamlet, Othello, Hunchbabk, etc. Mr. Bandmann is con sidered equal to Booth or Fechter, hav ing acquired a high reputation as an actor in England, Australia ; and the United States. Narcisse, which was represented one hundred nights in Lon don, will be on the bills on nextWedneS' day evening, the occasion of Treasurer Short's benefit. Theodore Thomas' Concerts. The musical sensation is the Thomas con certs, next Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday evenings, "at the, Greenlaw Opera House. The musicians, sixty in number, are all of the best musical tal ent in the country, and together they form a grand orchestra. The treasures of musical works which compose Thomas concert programmes are so varied and rich that to speak of them with true ap preciation would require more space than is allotted to us. Suffice it to say, that every morceau, small or large, so-called classical or modern, captivates the listen er's whose attention and interest. Buoom's QpsaA, House. The yicto- rille family at Broom's have proven a great attraction. Thy certainly merit much approbation, for their perform ances are first-class. The thrilling feats of Henry and Oscar on the horizontal bar are excellent, and their terrific leaps in mid air simply astounding.. Neil Rogers, oue of the cleverest delineators of Ethiopian character in this, country, is becoming a great favorite, and is no small card at Broom's. Altogether, Broom has an excellent company and well deserving patronage. The Olympic; Manager Lusk seems determined to keep pace with the times, and hence his variety compaay is one ot the best in the South, and capable of giving a mirth-provoking entertainment every evening. The Olympic is always well patronized because the company is always a good one and the performance such as to interest and entertain. Chas.
