The rival journals of the New York
Tribune are actively circulating a report
that Schuyler Colfax. Vice President,
etc., is about to be invested with Horace
Greeley's or Whitelaw Beid'a editorial
shoes. The Vice Presiient, it seems, is
looking aroundlfor a job of some sort,
and lately took a trip to New York that
the quid nuncs might give some import
ance to a report so well calculated to
injure the Tribune, and on his return
to Washington replied to anxious inqui
ries that nothing had been settled upon
definitely. It appears that Mr. Sinclair,
the publisher of the paper, and one
other director, favors the cause of
Colfax, but that six of the eight direc
tors sustain Mr. Whilelaw Reid, a young
journalist ol thirty-four, who has been
running the Tribune siuce the Cincin
nati Convention, aud who has made
much more reputation ihanfireeley had
at his ce. Il is not likely that Mr. Col
fax will be installed as editor of the Tri
bune at a sa'ary of $20,000 per annum,
or any other, although the Times,
HeraU, World and Sun would be de
lighted to see him adjust his hat on the
peg where Horace Greeley so loug hung '
up that famous old white hat and coat.
They could demolish him with wads of
paper and reduce the powerful Tribune
to a fifth class paper or a weekly in less
than two years. The idea of investing
such a politician as Colfax with the
duties pertaing to the conduct of a great
metropolitan paper is to absurd as to
excite only a smile from' etery profes
sional journalist. His subordinates
might do their part faithfully, but the
Public would quickly discern the trans
parency of the figure-head of the paper,
and its powerful influence would fall
to the ground. Colfax never was an
editor of a daily paper of any note, and,
having been in politics twenty-live years,
is a novice in the profession. The day
has passed when politicians can success
fully run newspopers, if they ever did.
The profession has advanced so rapidly
that only those who constantly study iu
details and work in the front ranks can
comply with its exactions. Neither
great learning nor distinction ia any
other pursuit prepares a man to be a
successful editor any more than the
qualifications of a master machinist
would fit him to go into a jewelry estab
lishment and make a watch.
The epizootic has ceased to be a sen
sation here, being abated but not en
tirely subsided. The street cars, hacks
and most of the heavy freight wagons
are drawn by horses and mules, as
usual. It must not be supposed, how
ever, that the diseose has entirely disap
peared, or that the gentle ox has re
turned to his bucolic fodder. Only Sun
day morning the baggage of the Stra
kosch company was seen moving slowly
down Main street, at the rate of a mile '
an hour, in a heavy blue country wagon
pulled by a yoke of well tamed but not
over fed oxen, seemingly caring as little
for railroad connections as lor operas in
general. The huge trunks were heaped
up skilfully, almost as high as a load of
hay, and on the ends were visible
"Strakoscli," "C. Patti," and other famil
iar names. The driver of this important
freight was a couutry darky of the pure
African type, loose jointed, ill clad,
careless in bis gait, and appa
rently a green one from the coun
try, who knew more about hauling wood
or picking cotton than the baggage bus
iness. He held a brush in oue hand and
a liue in the other, and kept the team
steady at their work and in the middle
of the street. Evidently the load
was an hour or so ahead of time, but
would not be so when it reached the
southern depot. Such scenes were a
novelty two or three weeks ago, but ex
cite no remark now. A spauking Cue
omnibus, full of people, drawn by oxen,
no longer draws the faze of crowds on
the streets; they pass on as usual, and
would sooner stop to look at a boy driv
ing a well trained goat in a little wagon.
Nevertheless, the epizootic lingers and
runs its course.
A SOUTH CAROLIHA IKHATOR.
Mr. J. J. Patterson, of Pennsylvania,
formerly grew rich at the expense of
poor South Carolina, and then thought
to buy a seat in the Toiled Slates Sen
ate. II is competitor's capital consisted
chiefly in bis color, but Elliott, although
negro, was shrewd enough to lay a trap
fur Patterson. Finding that he would
be defeated be called a doxe of the
faithful about Lira, advised them to take
Patterson's bribes, vole fur him (Elliott)
and charge Patterson with bribery. The
4)lan worked to a charm; the colored
Solons pocketed all the money they
could get from Patterson, and as soon
as his election took place, swore that he
bribed them in sums ranging from five
bundled to a thousand dollars, snd had
bim arreted, after he had expended fully
fifty thousand dollarsto carry his scheme
through. The telegraph has announced
that Patterson was discharged by some
justice. But Elliott has Lis friends, and
pressman, but that, did not satiate
burning ibition.Jhe thirsted for high
honors, and has proved to be a dau
ous Richmond. The possibilities
that he will co to tie United State Sen
ate. and that Dales Patterson has fifty
thousand dollars more te spend he will
go to the penitentiary, where be wou
learn a trade and become an earnest
vocate of the "one term ' policy.
The prospects of the Centennial Ex
position are uul as bright as the hue of
the rainbow. The Commission in ses
sion at Philadelphia reported a few days
go that sixteen of the States had not
bis.1 heard from on the proposition to
take stock ia proportion to population
Some of the newest Western aud oldest
Southern States are among the number.
The patriotic spirit which suggests such
a celebration witl be recognized, but
people are slow to invest money in such
a gigantic scheme wheu the government
utterly refuses, in advance, to take any
risk or responsibility, although it is to be
an international exposition. Philadelphia
ans are enthusiastic- over the project, as
their hotels and shop keepers would reap
a rich harvest. Pennsylvania nas offered
to take all the stock of the ten millions
that may remain unsubscribed at the
end of one hundred days. It is quite
likely that the old Keystone State will
have an opportunity to go into a heavy
speculation in that liue. The people
of Borne States do not feel able to take
the Btock; others are indifferent. We
know not what Tennessee will do, but
would say that stock taken in a good
public school system would, in the end,
bring as fair a return as any investment
that possibly could be made. The poor
children growing op in ignorance we
have always with us. The Exposition
will probably be taken in Land by the
government and carried through at the
expense of all.
Tub report of the Commissioner of
Education for 1ST1 has been sent to this
oflice by General John Eaton, jr. It is
a work of great value for reference, and
we expect to draw from its copions pages
many facts and arguments to use in
urging the importance of a good system
of education for the State. We hope a
few copies of the report will fall into the
hands of our legislators elect, and that
they will meet at Nashville with intelli
gent ideas on the subject of education.

II onto Jail. .
JliUli.TON, 0., December 17. Great excite
ment was produced last evening by the eicape,
at seven o'clock, of three men, convicted of
penitentiary offences, from the county Jail.
The prisoners took up a Hag-stone la the inte
rior of the Jail and dug down underneath
the foundation, making a hole large enough
for a good-sised man to erawl through. They
dug out on the east side of the jttil, sad about
seven o'clock one after another emerged from
thu hole In rapid succession. An employe of
tho Jail was axtouished to sea Charles Brown in
the yard coolly putting on bis coat. He. rushed
In and gave the alarm. The bull of the Jail
was immediately rung, and many nocked
over to see what was the matter. Meanwhile,
the three prisoners rapidly pursued their
flight. Every effort ha been made to capture
them, hut so fur they have evaded detection.
The names of the parties are Charles Brown,
sentenced to five years fur highway robbery,
and Malloy and Allen, each sentenced for
three years for grand larceny and burglary,
They exhibited great ingenuity in making
their escape. Frank Quin, convicted of grand
larceny, endeavored to accompany them, but
in some manner got fastened in the bole and
was hauled back to his old Quarters.. The
three prisoners who escaptd were the only
ones eonisll oS penitentiary offence.
Memphis Thiti. Davy Crockett, a sen
sational and attractive play, waa brought out
at the theater last evening, with Mr. Frank
Mayo in the title role. Mr. Mayo is a fine
actor, no&sessing versatility of talent to a re
markable degree. His impersonation of
Davy Crockett" last evening was every
thing to be commended, and was enjoyed by
the audience. The plot is quite interesting.
the dialogue well kept np until the close of
the piece. The life of Davy Crockett has ai
mosOten forgotten in the Southwest, yet a
few of our old settlers remember whea Crock
ett crossed the Mississippi at Memphis as he
moved westward. The play is filled with
dramatic scenes, well wrought and highly in
teresting. To-night Davy Crockett will be
again produced, and we would suggest that it
be presented for reveral nights, in order to
give our citizens an opportunity of witnessing
a mest graphic picture of the great pioneer
Tennesseean. Mr. Mayo compare favorably
with such actors as Booth, Jefferson, Sothern;
fact, he stands in the front rank on the
American stage. The pubtio should not fail
to attend the theater during the week,.
Hmrrr DmrTT. The great Foi presented
the original Hunipty Dunipty at the Gjand
Opera House last night. The audience, quit a
large on. became enthused over the absurdities
and grotesque performance of the " Clown"
and "Pantaloon.,", It is a pleasure to hear
hundreds of people laugh in unison. The man
or woman who can sit out Uuinpty Dumpty
and not laugh immoderately is fit for trans
portation to the land of ao laughter. It is Im
possible not to become interested in the
"Pi.n "Pantaloon." " Harltquin "
Clown." "Pantaloon," naritq
aud "Columbine." ."he transloca
tions, scenery and magical changes are
wonderful. Among the specialties there are
many attractions. The Girards a la Majilton
perform ,the most astonishing terpeichoreaa
evolutions. The Wilson Brothers da aero-,
batic feat of the most daring character with
a grace and ease bewildering. The Russian
quartette, in costume, warble forth scat fine
but unique choruses. Casselli on the invisible
wire. Smith on roller skates, .Master Casselli,
the wonderful drummer and vocalists, are ex
cellent; and then the infants, Venus and
Adonis, on velocipede!, who created Such ap
plause last treeing. Fox ha a fine ceiubiaa-
ion, the beat of the kind that ha ever ap
peared in Memphis. As " Humpty Dumpty"
Mr. Fox is irresistible; his facial expression
sjid fine acting cause the audience to break
into a roar. The pantomime is just the thing
the holidays. . -

Ia a recent feuillon in the Paris
Journal des Debats Jules Janin, the
celebrated critic, devotes much space to
an eloquent vindication of the memory
of the unfortunate Abelard and lieloise
in connection with a severe criticism of
a sort ol sineitig-bnrlesqae upon the
main intidenls in the life of these un
happy lovers, which is Daw having- a
" ran" at the Folies Dramatlques, a va
riety theater of Paris. This establish
ment seems to have devoted itself to
burlesquing; all that is most honored,
most respected, in the misfortunes that
have Iwn experienced in this world ol
ours. Thus ha it happened that the
pathetic incidents of the sad lores of
A Ward and Ilelois have bee a traves
tied to crowded and laughing, audieicts
and that their .history has bn made the
theme for a French bouffe. Janin s feu
illeton is at once sympathetic, caustic,
and learned, and if anything could brinK
reproach oa the laughing devil of bur
lesque his timely rebuke shoula do so.
The Tidioute (Pcnn.) Journal gives
these " last words " of an oil man: "An
oil man dyiug the other day, called his
friend to his bedside and bade him good
bye in the following words: ' I'm almost
down to the third sand, liob, mid the
drill is stuck.'"
