The First and Second Chancery Courts have adjourned to Court in course, Monday next, the first day of the April term. . " ; The Letter List can be found in to day's issue of the Ledger, and will here after appear regularly every Saturday evening. The annual (air, for the benefit of St. Peter's Orphan Asylum, will commence next Monday evening, and will be held at the Assembly Hall. Good Friday (yesterday), although not generally observed as a holiday, was, nevertheless, religiously celebrated by the christian people of oar city. A petition has been filed in the First Chancery Court to change the name of the Memphis and Selma railroad to that of the Selma, Marion and Memphis Railway. Jim Sweeny, a watch-grabber, pleaded guilty in the Criminal Court to-day to the charge of stealing a watch, and was sentenced by twelve of his peers to five years' imprisonment in the penitentiary. Charles Hayden, alias Irish Charley, who was arrested some days since by de tective Cranraer, on the charge of kill ing a man in Texas, remains in jail to await a return of facts from the Lone Star State. ' In the Criminal Court to-day a new trial was granted to Mel Barnes, who was convicted of the larceny of a coat and sentenced to two years' imprison ment in the penitentiary, during the present term of the Court. The ladies of Grace (Episcopal Church are giving "sociables" at the residences of the members, for the benefit of the church. Music, conversa tion and other attractions are the pleas ant incidents on such occasions. Mr. Lusk, formerly proprietor of the Varieties Theater, asks us to coatradict the notice in the local columns of the Appeal of tliis morning, and says "he is not in the hands of the Sheriff or in jail, until he pays two hundred dollars back license." Candidates for county offices continue to come forward, and with smiling faces solicit the suffrages ef the sovereigns There are at least one hundred gentle men in Memphis, who are willing to serve the public in a remunerative county office. Coroner MofTutt held an inquest this morning on the body of a white man named James Burns, found dead near the corner of Main and Winchester streets, late last night. The jury re turned a verdict of heart disease as the cause of death. One of the Austin Brothers, trapeze performer, while going through a flying trapeze trick at Broom's, last night, slipped and fell headlong into the par- quette. The man was badly bruised, and was conveyed to his lodging-house in an insensible condition. The orphans of the Lauderdale, Mis sissippi, Asylum gave a concert at the Memphis Theatre last night. The orphans will give a matinee to-day, at 2 o'clock, and another vocal perform ance this evening. Remember the little orphans of the fallen soldiers of the South. Colonel Nathan Adams, of S -.nton, is in the city, making arrangements to fin ish the fine monument of Scotch gran ite which he is erecting in the'grounds of Stanton college. Colonel Adams is one of our most public-spirited citizens, and possesses a cultivated taste for fine arts. 1 ' Secretary Stone, of the Chickasaw Jockey Club, has placed on onr table the printed programme of the third annual spring meeting, to commence on Monday, April 29th, and continue five days. Judging by the purses, stakes and entries, the races will be most attractive. To-morrow, Easter Sunday, will be celebrated in the Catholic and Episco pal churches of the city in an imposing manner. The churches are being deco rated to-day with evergreens and flowers, a charming custom that relieves churches of that somber appearance so snggestive of the Lenten season. For lawfully issuing a certificate of marriage the law fixes the price at $3 ?5. To get a divorce the actual costs amount to $50. There is nothing said as to preachers' and lawyers' fees or other expenses incidental to each event. Young men, cot this out and paste it in your ping hats. A fashionable you'g gentleman on Main street last evening inquired of a friend, "Who is this' Lord Dundreary who is coming to Memphis next Mon day? I never heard of a Southern Lord of that name." His friend smiled placidly and undertook to explain to the young man the difference between Mr! Sothern and Our American Cousin. , The remains of the late GovernorK. M. Anderson reached here yesterday after noon, from Swan Lake, Arkansas, on board the steamer T. H. Allen. The funeral services were performed by Rev. Mr. Harris, at 4 o'clock yesterday after noon at Elm wood Cemetery, in the pres ence of a large number of the relatives and friends of the lamented deceased. Police circles are excited to-day over the report that two white men in a buggy were seen yesterday to drive out to the suburbs of the city and bury a suspicious looking box, supposed to contain well, that bus nbtlyet been discovered but it is believed that the services of a grave dig ger will be required to prepare matters for a coroner's '.nquest. The marriage licenses returned execu ted to the County Clerk,"5 during the1 week, are as follows : Thos. Elles and Miss Mary E. Mowrey, August Felsentbal and Miss Matilda Kaufman, Jas. K. P. Brewer and Miss Sarah H. Mathews, Win. R- Harrell and Miss Jennie) Buch anan, E. L.'Broughton and Miss Cabelia A. Jeffries, G W. Gregare and Miss Tabitha Brown. Three colored couples did likewise. The questions at present: Shall there be ward meetings, or an election for delegates to the County Convention ? If ward meetings are packed, what will keep ballot-boxes from being stuffed f Nothing but the action of our best citi- zeus who defeated rings and cliques by their unanimous support of Mayor John son in the late municipal election. The ward politicians are becoming uneasy; their occupation, ' like Othello's, "gone." The driving of wild mules through the streets at a gallop is becoming a nais ance in every sense of the term. This morning a drove of mules ran over dray on Madison street and pedestrians had to scatter in every direction. Some day the city will be sued for several thousand dollars by a maimed man or woman who became a victim to this frontier style of business. Mules can be lead through the streets, but that would be a little expensive to the owners; hence the cracking of whips and galloping of semi-wild animals on our thoroughfares. . -l. . Amtseemeata. Memphis Theatre. Mr. Sothern will aDoesr in our American Cousin as "Lord Dundreary,"- next '.Monday even ing. The London Punch says: They who wish to aee a new type of a swell, nuit. diffitr.nt from anvthine that the stare before has shown them, should go and have a laurh at M r. Sothern's Lord Dundreary. For quaint and quiet humor, nothing ean excel his vacuous solemnity. His attitudes are natural, and bis humor new and frexh; while, despite of all his funny and fantastic carica turing, there is a sometning true w nature in his almost every loucn. Broom's Opera ,: Housn. Manager Broom succeeds in crowding his house every night by ' presenting rare attrac tions in the variety line.

An Hens af Iaterest. ; Every housekeeper is interested in the cooking department, and regards it as, probably, the most important branch of domestic life. "Without a good aook the world wonld be a blank," exclaimed a French gourmand, after rising np from a feast fit for Lucullus. The best way to secure a regularity In good pooking is to quietly visit the house of Wetter k Co , Nos. 13 and 15 Monroe street, and purchase a Champion cooking stove? with wrought iron oven. erophie Headqaartera.

At a meeting called by 'the President of the Chamber of Commerce, on the im portant subject of receiving the report of the committee on union with the Cot ton Exchange, there being no quorum present, an adjournment was bad to next Monday afternoon. It is understood that the committee will report as fol lows: In favor of uniting when seventy, five members are obtained for the Cotton Exchange, which will be the Cotton De partment of the Chamber; the Chamber of Commerce is to furnish a suitable room, and place a cotton indicator in the same reports to be received from other Exchanges at the expense of the Cham ber; the expenses attendant upon the department to be borne by its members, which expenses are to be assessed by the executive committee, etc. It is more than probable that the Chamber of Commerce will agree to the terms proposed and agreed upon, as it was feared that the establishment of the Cotton Exchange by our leading cotton men would have had a damaging effect upon the prosperity of the Chamber of Commerce by taking from it many of its members. 5 Tlvell Analveraary Opening;.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL ' MOSEY. t PtrsMO Lsdois Orvioi, 1 Msvraia. Tax.. March 30. 1872. 1 la local Bnancial matters we have nothing especially new to report. The supply of cur rency is abundant, and rates of ditoount steady at 10(812 per cent., with but few appli cations for extension. Tbe money market in New York shows signs of stringency, bnt aa yet that feeling haa not made its appearance weat of there. The situation as regards exchange has im proved but little. We learn, however, of transactions between banks amounting te SW.OOO at 82 premium per $1000. In baying over the eounter, however, the uniform rate la par, with occasionally a rumor of devia tions, whereby customers are credited with He premium, but no authentic information is to be had upon the subject. In selling the rate U steady at He on all points but New Or leans, which is bought at o discount and sold at par. There ia but little gold offering. Dealers buy at Vf. and would pay c better for large amounts. New York ratea are 110. . A New York noon dispatch gives the bank statement aa follows: Loans decreased, t'J94, 100; specie Increased, 11,948.100; deposits de creased, $638,200; legal tenders decreased, SMI.flOO; circulation Increased, $1100. - The movement in local investments ia light, and, with the exeeptien of a moderate coun ter businesi in scrips and warrants, but little Is being done. Tennessee money, old, and auditors' warrants are sold to tax-payera at 90c, and eouifty warrants are held Irmly at 95c. There waa some Inquiry fur Arkansas leveea, and a sale of $4000 at 23c. City rail way securities are in request at 4fa, but we could hear of no oilers of 50c, as haa been re parted. Some city coupons, dating back a number of years, were offered, and 80c, with interest, was the best bid made. Memphis and Charleston railroad stock ia quoted at 34atS5c. We learn, upon reliable authority, that a change la contemplated in the presidency of the Merchant's National Bank, Mr. Wood ruff, the present presiding officer, having de voted several years of arduous laber to the interests of that institution, has, with the as sistance of Cashier Freeman, worked it up to , nrst class standard, ana now retirex, to fire more attention to his individual anairs. lis succssor will, we learn, be Jlr. K. C. Daniels, formerly cashier, and who, for some time, has been in liew York. COTTON. Notwithstanding that yesterday waa a holi day elsewhere, our buyers dipped in to the ex tent of 1800 bales. Thursday's closing rate for middling in New York was 230. To-day that market opened at and soon ad vanced to23!4c, with the unofficial quotation at noon 23) jC New Orleans has also advanced y,o, and a private dispatch from Liverpool gives a strict or " outside " quotation for up lands at HHd flat an advance of 1-lCd since Thursday.
