The Presidential campaign presents a type tetter and a West Pointer, Con gressional political excitement i which reached fever heat a week ago has qui eted down. Street cars will run past the theater before and after the performance every evening next week. Has anybody heard of the Raleigh railroad lately? Ben Butler, of silver spoon fame, is to stump the West, and may take in Mem phis. Stanley is to be sent out in search of the man " who struck Billy Patter son." A poor coelebs, somewhat the worse for wear, sat near a Monroe street beer saloon last night, sighing mourn fully, " Menny years, all by my hearth stone, desserlit, have I been settin'," and got mad when our Jim asked him when he expected to "hatch.". Bad boys who get together in the public streets and throw stones are frequently complained of by injured parties, and the Chief of Police has instructed his men to arrest tbem. Advance sheets of the Memphis Theater Lorgnette were issued yesterday and were generally pro nounced very handsome. The Exposi tion building is expected to be finished by the end of next week. It is fashion able in Memphis now to take the votes of a crowd for the drinks, and the friends of Cheatham or Johnson regard the re sult as a political straw. If there are no services at your church to-morrow you have an excellent opportunity to hear some other good minister. The races at our forthcoming county fair promise to excite considerable interest. The pistol ball which was lodged in the abdomen of Thomas Murray, a few evenings ago was extracted last night by Drs. Miner, Rice and Mitchell, and hopes are now entertained of his recovery. The School Board meets at seven o'clock this evening. Seed-ticks are plentiful in the country. Lots of new houses are going up in the city. The new one hundred dollar green backs will soon be in circulation, and then local editors will be happy. Mem phis sent New Orleans two hundred and fifty tons of ice in the past week. The Democratic Executive Committee meets at three o'clock Monday afternoon, The Congressional trio speak in Knoxville to-day.. More cotton, by 2012 bales, has been received in this city this season than at the same time last season, Be cause Esquire Millard fell into a hole on Beal street he sued the city for $10,000 damages, and the jury gave him seventy five dollars.

Mr. Carl Gutherz, the popular and tal' en ted Memphis artist, returned home yesterday from a protracted absence in Europe, During his stay of three or four years in the Old World Mr. Gutherz studied his profession in the finest art galleries in the world, and some of his productions were the subject of very fa vorable comment from the critics and the press. His most popular study is the Awakening of Spring. Rev. L. C. Ransom has returned to the city after an absence of several weeks in Middle Tennessee. He will occupy his pulpit in the Court street Presbyte rian church to-morrow. Mrs. Minor Meriwether, the talented authoress and publisher of the Tablet, returned home from an Eastern tour yesterday. m m a The Jewish Pit.pit. An eloquent and instructive discourse was delivered at the Jewish synagogue last eveniug by Rabbi Raphael , D'C. Lewin, of New York, to a large audience of our Israel- itish fellow-citizens and a number of Gentiles. He was attentively listened to throughout. To-morrow night the elo quent Rabbi wil lecture at the same place on the Jewish pulpit. A cordial invitation is extended to the public, and we have no doubt the temple will be filled to repletion. A.

Oflice, 291 Second street. 69t A well organized campnign against that demoralizing institution known as keno is to be commented at ouce. The Grand Jury is eager for its. suppression, and iu this regard they have the entire and undivided sympathy of Judge Flip- pin and the Attorney General, as well as all good citizens. Keno is beyond doubt the worst form of gambling, en ticing the poor mechanic and laboring man, the youth of the country, and such persons as cannot afford to play against games where larger stakes are required, and are thus deprived of their scanty earnings, while their families are suffer ing for the actual necessities of life. I'reah Arrivals. . The attention of our readers is called to the advertisement in another column of Messrs. Spicer & Ryan, the well; known and popular dealers in family groceries. They have just received a fresh supply of new goods bought direct from ' first hands, and for sale cheap. The Messrs. Spicer !t Ryan are ener getio and enterprising merchants, and their patrons never fail to find there anything in the grocery line they may happen to wish. The advertisement in another column enumerates a number of articles just received, and we ask for it a careful perusal by our readers. ' FELIX'S. Fresh shell oysters received dally.

On Monday night the doors of the Memphis Theater will be thrown open for the season, at which time Oliver Doud Byron will appear as " Ferritt," in the great sensation of Across the Continent. Mr. Byrou is not well known to the Memphis theatergoers, but the press of other cities recommend him highly, and we have no doubt our people will extend him a favorable welcome. He will be supported by the New Or leans stock company, which is said to be even better than the company that played here a few weeks ago with so much success. The season will continue uninterruptedly after next Monday evening. . ' , . Fire Alarm. An alarm of fire was sounded about half-past eight o'clock this morning, caused by the burning of a tar kettle in the alley, rear of Costillo's stable. Some workmen were engaged in repairing the roof of the stable, and were heating tar in the alley for that purpose, when the tar overran the top of the ket tle and sent a flame about twenty-five feet up in the air, . 'Captain Anderson, Chief of the Fire Department, had the man arrested for carelessness in burning tar so near tho stable, in which was a quantity of hay. . No damage was done, Change ok Time. rThe schedule of the Memphis and Louisville railroad changes to-morrow, after which time the express train will leave Memphis at 3:40 a m the mail train at 3:10 p.m., and the Brownsville accommodation at 4:40 p.m. The autumn schedule of tbe road appears elsewhere in our columns.

Two sharp and rather desperate " mackerels," known as Cas sidy and Haddigan, roped in a country- lman at the Varieties last night, and were about tq get away with him when officer Cogbill interfered and arrested both the parties and another young man aamed Carey, who was supposed to be impli cated. They were all three brought before the Recorder this morning, when Carey was discharged and Cassidy and Haddigan fined twenty-five dollars eaoh. After the fine had been assessed, Cas sidy criticised the action of the court, and the Recorder levied an additional fine of twenty-five dollars on him for contempt. Matrimonial.

The Monitor. Winter is coming aud stoves are in demand. This being the case, we take the liberty of recommend ing to our friends the Monitor cooking stove for coal or wood, which was awarded the first premium at the Cin cinnati Exposition in 1879. It is con fessedly one of the best stoves manufac tured, and as it can be used for either wood or coal, is particularly desirable. The Monitor is for sale by H.
