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.

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.

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

'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.

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.
