' 4 The irregularity of the delivery of mails at the post-office has caused con siderable trouble at the newspaper offices. Several times have we received the Ap peal mails, and we understand our co temporary has labored under similar troubles. . A little more attention to bus iness is necessary. A correspondent to a morning cotem porary, noticing the premature announce ments of deaths that have of late been made by sensatiosal reporters, suggests the plan of establiHhing a morgue, where parties can be kept for a time until life is extinct. We suggest that the sensa tional reporters be put in the morgue when established. A book of poems, by Mrs. M. E. Pope, of this city, will soon be issued from the press. Many of these poetical effusions attracted considerable atten tion when published in the newspapers in days past. The collection abont to be published not only inclndes these poetical gems, but others of a later date that have never appeared in print. At the next meeting of the School Board, a petition, numerously signed by prominent tax payers, will be presented, asking the Board -to pay the female teachers in the public schools the same amount as that paid to males for the tame grades. This is nothing but sim ple justice, and it is a.ttonishing that the claims of the female teachers have for so long a time been ignored. Let us keep at least in sight of the civilization of the nineteenth century. The boundary line between Shelby county, Tennessee, and DeSoto ceuaty, Mississippi, being in dispnte, the oid marks having been swept away by time. the landlords and truants of that vicinity have to engage in lawsuits in each State) j to settle all roDtroversies. The Legis' i lature wilt have to' Interpose eventually and consider the matter, as it is new proposed to do between the State of Vir ginia and Tennessee with reference to the boundary lines of these common wealths. How and when to bridge the Missis sippi in front of Memphis are proposi ions seriously considered by oar eiui ttat fjyi engineers.'' 'Months ago, when the press suggested the bridge question, the proposition was looked upon as visionary and chimerical, but now the rsjlroad developments have made the bridge a necessity, and our business men regard the thing as not enly practicable but absolutely necessary. The Lcoota map of the Memphis bridge set many clear hetds' to thinking.. .Several bets have' been made in our city to the effect that the bridge will be commenced be i'ote five years have rolled around, and nniitied betore tbe next decade.

Driver at tke Ckrste ml MarelcrlBar Mr. Iu the Leduer of February 5th there appeared an account of the finding of the dead body of an Englishmen, Henry Atkinson, in the woods near Bethlehem church, a few miles west of Horn ake depot. The .inquest disclosed the fact that he bad been murdered, a pistol ball having entered the right temple and lodged against the skin in the left tern pie. A folded handkerchief was found under tbe head on the right side, aud an empty single-barreled pistol was found in the hand of the decoased Our reporter nil at HornLske at the time and published the facts of the case as detailed by those who attended the inquest, and the statement of Dr. Chat Baskerville, who made the post mortem examination. On arriving iu the city our reporter immediately informed the chief of police of the murder, and thut vigilant officer put his subordinates on the look-out. Detective Harry Cran mer, the only first-class detective in the employment of the city, took the matter in charge, and last evening arrested K J. McGinnis, alias "Fatty," a well known scalping hack-driver, and George, alias Cis Crowley, a waiter-boy, for merly employed at a Jefferson street restaurant, on the charge of murder. It seems that the officers traced Atkinson from Grenada to Mem phis, when on the 23d of January or thereabout, he was seen at a theater intoxicated, and rode in McGinnis' back to a restaurant for supper in company with Adie Sprague, an actress. Atkin son pulled out a roll of money in the presence -of Adie, McGinnis and the waiter, Crowley, then rode to" the Good- all House, where the actress roomed, When last seen Mr. Atkinson was in McGinnis' hack, and they appeared to be quarreling about the amount of fare, TWO THEORIES Of kCRDER. It is believed by the officers that Mr. Atkinson waa, murdered and robbed in this city, and that his body was carried to Horn Lake, where it was found. The empty pistol was placed iu the hand, the folded handkerchief was 'plaeed un der the head, and the notes and papers were left undisturbed, in order that it would look as if the man had committed suicide. Another theory ia that he was accom panied out to where the body was found, and there the murder was committed. When found the body was frozen stiff, and the medical examiner gave it as his opinion that Atkinson had been dead a week or ten days." The'body was found on Friday, the "2d of February" The links in the chain of proof are not tbe strongest possible, but the circumstan tial facts of the case point at McGinnis and Crowley. The matter has been cleverly forked up by the detective, and may reveal more, in the future than we have been informed of. ' am.aeaieata. Memphis Theater.

The rise yesterday evening, and np to noon to-day, was two inches, and tbe river is now ten feet above low-water. A heavy swell is coming down the Ohio, and is now between Louisville and Evansville, that will, with the rise com ing out of the Wabash, Cumberland and Tennessee, cause a rise here of about a foot. Tbe changes at other points dur ing the past twenty-four hours are as follows: At Cairo, it rose, live inches; at Cincinnati, two feet one inch; at Lou isville, eleven inches; Nashville, two inches; and at Leavenworth, declined three inches; Omaha, three inches; Pittsburg, six inches; Evansville, three inches; Shreveport, three inches; St. Louis, two inches, and Vicksburg, three inches. Cloudy and falling weathe;-. with rain and snow, was reported above last night'. ' Here tbe wind changed to tbe northwest, blowing quite a cold gale, and to-day it is cloudy and cold. PORT NEWS. The Capitol City, with a fair trip, passed up last night The Sam J. Hale and City of Chester came in late, each with a large cargo Of the de partures last evening, the Glasgow took a fair trip, and the Cheek went out with a splendid trip of people and freight On her last trip up she moved some 360 levee laborers up the river about twenty miles There were but four steamers at the landing last night The Henry Ames and P. W. Strader passed up early this morning, tbe former discharging 50 tons freight here The City of Ches ter, from St. Louis, came in with a full trip, including 2100 dry barrels and 1466 sacks seed, and returned at noon with a fair trip of way freight The tow boat Dick Fulton and barges passed tip early this morning. aHRCEI.LAXEOfS. The ice moved out of the river at Minniciska on Wednesday, and the river is clear as far as can be seen both ways. Yesterday the first locomotive crossed the new railroad bridge over the Ohio river between Newport and Cincinnati. Tbe test was not very satisfactory, as the bridge was not quite ready for it. The Signal Service Bereau has deter mined to make Western river news a specialty, and will incorporate in tbe daily reports all suddeu changes in the stage of water. This will indeed prove of great benefit especially as the spring rise is close at hand. Such changes j will be bulletined here at the Chamber j of Commerce, Peabody Hotel, several j points on Front street, aud at this office. In connection with this matter it affords us pleasure to commend the energy and fficiency of the weather observer at this point, Mr. S. W. Rhode. The Minneola has gone to the Mad isen, led., docks for repairs. The A. J. White, Capt Mark Cheek, leaves for Napoleon and all intermedi ate landings this evening, at & o' Wk j B. P. Fields and Charley Sharpe are clerk. The Strader, Arkansas, aud Henry Ames, are due from below. The Sam J. Hale goes out to-morrow evening, she 'not being able to get her cargo discharged in time to leave to night. The Colorado, Captain Lnker, leaves this evening at five o'clo" for Vicks burg, and all the usual way lauding'. H. Deaderick is ia clerk. , , .. The U. S. Mail steamer, T. H. Allen, Capt. Eugene Smith, leaves for Little Rock, Pine BlufT, and all points on Ar kansas river this evening at 5 o'clock. Pat Morrison is clerk. It is suggested that the mails from New Orlean and Vicksburg be brought here by river. Under the present rail road arrangement it takes three or four day to get tbe Vicksburg mail, aud that from New Orleans makes good time if it is only a week old on delivery. Steiim boats can beat all'such work as that. The Mary Boyd was towed down to the landing this morning, and will load for the Arkausas, to leave Monday next. Onr telegrams from Evansville to-day states that the Mary Miller did not lnr.d there, although there was a large amount of Arkansas river freight awaiting her. The Kate Kinney gets considerable New Orleans freight there, and fills out with corn below at 40c. per 100 pounds to New Orleans. . ' The Belfast and City of Quincy, f r St Louis, will be due to-morrow frutu below, each with about -100 tons of freight. The greater part of the cargo of the City of Quincy consists of rail- 1 road Irou, while that of the ftrlfn-t i chiefly sugar and molasses. On Monday the R. E. Lee carried to New Orleans 2064 bales of cotton, 2.V4 sacks of cotton seed, 8 sacks of seed eotton and 401 sacks of oil cake. The steamers at the New Orleans landing on Monday displayed their col ors at half-mast, as a token of respect to the memory of Mr. Theodore Fred. Os trander, the well known Louisville and New Orleans pilot, who died on Sunday last. Pittsburg ha a coal exchange, and much of the coal ned by steambouts aud citizen here passes through tlie hands of its members. The A pp. -til i printed bj steam made from the name coal, und "yet they are not happy." Because a Cotton Exchange is wantoj here, the "futures" in coal doesn't affect the Appeal those in cotton do, liowevt-r. , The R. P. Gray is due from the Ar kansas. , The Grand Tower reports oiiiy seven and a half feet between Cairo and St. Louis. Yesterday's St Louis papers i t port but six to six and a half feet, how ever. ' A St. Louis dispatch'stutes that there is great excitement in that city in regard to the Carondelet bridge bill, and viper ous measures will be taken to oppo..e it. Should the bill as now before Congress become a law, none of the first-cliMt boats could pass under it without taking off their pilot-houses and texas. ' While the rate on flour to the mouth of Red river by New Orlean steamers in 90 cent per' barrel, the Henry M. Shreve's rate to Shreveport, away up that river, is only one dollar, with othi-i-articles in proportion. The St. Louis Democrat i.s not a littl," exercised over the purchase of the Kuii by a Memphis merchant, and anxiously inquires who Miles Owen is, apd what he will do with the boat Ws understand he bought her by accident, having on the day of the sale fl'i.i.OOO out of bunk that he did not wish to carry home, anil that he might accidentally buy th Richmond, Lee and several other bouts to put in the Memphis trade. He could load each of those boats ouce every year with cotton grown on his own plan tation, below here. STEAMBOATS. Dean Line. For l'alr,LnlaviIInnd ( lut-luunl t SAM 3. HALE J5. T.
