The much vexed question of "futures," which it was supposed would ruin the country, has been for gotten as a thing of the past. South Memphis is growing rapidly.

In the House of Representatives at Washington yesterday, on the reading of the amnesty bill, it was discovered that it contained the names of Zebulon Vance, A. 0. P. Nicholson and Isham 6. Harris. The reading of the names caused considerable commotion and ex citement among the ultra-Radical mem bers. The bill, which contains over five thousand names, was referred to the judiciary committee. Two detectives, acting upon secret in formation, went out to the northern suburb of the city yesterday and' dug up a mysterious looking box supposed to contain the body of a murdered in fant. When opened a dead black and tan met their gaze. A card attached.to the animal suggented something about the 1st of April. The detectives did not remove the. body. It was stronger than they, and made them move. ,' A man named Long, from near Grand Junction, was fined fifty dollars by the recorder to-day, because he approached a , young girl at the Mississippi depot, carried her up town to a hotel and registered her name as Miss Martha Long, instead of by her own name. The young girl's uncle, with the aid of the police, came up with Long in a few hours attar he had enticed the girl from the depot. His object in so doing did not appear, but the recorder deemed it best to fine him for making a false registration on the hotel books.

The portfolio was taken by the stranger s confederate, wbo was standing near, and another portfolio, re sembling it ic every particular, was laid in its place. The money was nearly all in thousand dollar bills. A reward of $12,000 has been offered for the recovery of the money and arrest of the thieves. N. S. Badger, Sup't Metropolitan Police, New Orleans. Tho job was well "put up" by the robbers, who had, of course, made every arrangement in advance, not only to get the portfolio, but to escape with the booty. The rule adopted by our chief- of-police, if carried out in New Orleans, would have prevented such robberies the above. The races in progress in New Orleans have attracted a large number of first-class thieves and vaga bonds.:' Chief Athey has instructed his officers and men that all known thieves shall be arrested on arriving in the city. If they are not wanted at any other point by the authorities, they will be ordered to leave the city instanter.

At 11 o'clock lastnightitwas reported at the Adams street station-house that an ex-Metropolitan policeman, named Charles W. Clinton, bad murdered his wife, in the Webster Block on Main street, near Poplar. Clinton did not try to escape, but surrendered himself to the first officer that came in sight. The body of the murdered woman was found in a badly ventilated and furnished room in the rear portion of the block. Tbe woman was entirely nude and was lying en a dirty bed. Her face, arms and body were slashed in a frightful manner, and heavy bruises , were found on her person, the result of kicks from her demoniacal and brutal husband. The room was a mass of gore blood was everywhere, telling the tale that a fear, ful struggle bad taken place ere the mur der was committed. The dead woman was named Carrie, and was employed as a beer seller in one of our variety shows. Clinton bad been a member of the Me tropolitan police force, and had married the woman about a year since. They lived a quarrelsome life, and he had been in tbe babit of beating and kicking her unmercifully whenever intoxicated. While on the police force he shot and killed Tern Porter, a notorious mackerel, in the alley back of tbe station-house, while Porter was trying to escape. Since that time the killing of Porter seemed to weigh heavily on hit mind. For the last two years Clinton's character has been bad. Last evening Clinton and his wife were drinking and fighting, the noise created by them attracting the at tention of the adjoining tenants. Esquire Speltnan held an inquest on the body of the dead woman lust night, the jury returning a verdict that she came to her death at the hands of hsr husband, Charles W. Clinton. This forenoon Clinton was brought before Esquire Spelman on a warrant charging him with murder. Examiua tion was waived, and the prisoner was remanded to jail without bail. The murder is the most brutal and bloody that has been committed in this city for many years. ' PcMrs at 31S Second street. 42t Parasols and umbrellas Dollar Store.
