The Typographical Union picnic at James' Park yesterday was largely at tended, and was both a social and bnan- cial success. General John C. Breckinridge will be the orator of the day at the Masonic celebration in this city on tho 21th of June, Su John's day. The burial of dead bodies in Winches ter Cemetery has been prohibited by or- inance, which declares it a misdemeanor and paniahable by fine. How to deal with crime and criminals s the problem to solve in Memphis. All other remedies, except hanging, have been resorted to without effect. Arkansas swamp mosquitoes have in vaded the city and have driven Mem phinns under "bare," while the insect Modoca sing songs of jictory outside. The Franklin Hotel and Coleman House', of Raleigh, will be opened on Friday evening next with a soiree and hop by the affable proprietor, .Mr. Mc- Keogh. .... , . . A little shooting affray yeaterday after noon, near the Overton, startled the res idents of that neighborhood. Result, bad shooting and nobody hurt; cause of affray, whisky. 1 Garibaldi, the Vance street grocery keeper who was struck on the head with a mallet by James Aste, some days since, it is feared, will die. Aste has fled to parts unknown. Over forty sanguine individuals await with ill-concealed impatience the result of the action of the Police Board on the selection of a keeper for the Adams street statien-hoo.se. The New York Graphic is responsible for the news that " Mr. Waggoner found fault with the beef at a Memphis hotel the other day, and the Coroner made three dollars on him.' The baby prize show, the promenade concert and the shadow dance, at the Ex position Building next Friday afternoon and night, will attract thousands of viS' itors. Give the babies a chance. The graves of the Confederate dead at Elmwood were covered with flowers yes terday. " a race of funeral flowers, ' That garlanded in by-gone hours. ; A Templar's knightly tomb." Keligious anniversaries are gradually becoming obsolete in the United States, go far as enthusiastic celebrations are concerned. It only proves that secta rianism is " playing out." The popular appeals at present are for schools, col lefceB and libraries educational instead of religious objects. The new postal cards will be the rage while the novelty lasts; they may prove a real convenience and become a perma nent institution in our midst, but if the Government can carry these cards for ona cent, why cannot it carry letters for the same price? The people want cheap postage and a prompt distribution of mail matter. : t A sunset worthy of Italy was admired by bnndreds of visitors to the bluffs lat evening.

This forenoon the proces sion, headed by Captain Wetherfordand police, and the old Memphis brass band, moved through the principal streets. The triumphal car was handsomely dec orated, and bore the device so dear ta every native of Italy. " Italian Unity." The car was filled with a number of ele gantly dressed and bright looking chil drea. In the corners little ladies repre sented spring, summer, autumn and winter, and above, beneath the canopy, sat Miss Victoria Cordona, the Italian Mar Queen, and Miss Eugenie Boggiano, the Geddes of Liberty.

On tha way up, and when about fifty miles below here last night, a revolting and unprovoked murder was committed on lha aleauier Phil Allio, tha particu lars of which ara about as follows. A Mr. U.

W ben the boat reached Bledsoe's Landing, Johu Cannon, the proprietor of a store there, took paasage for Memphis, it was noticed by those on board that ha was somewhat under the influence of bad whisky, but no particular attention was paid to him at tha time. Soon after night had set in, however, he went to the clerk and deposited a package of four hundred dollars, aad sometime after grew rather boisterous from the effects of frequent visiu to the bar, aad threatened to kill ona or two persons on board. But little attention was paid to his threats, how ever, until late at night (about eleven o'clock), when ha went to the bar keeper and demanded his pistol, which bad been taken from bim by a friend and left at tha bar. The pistol was given to .him, after which he went to the office, and not finding the clerk there, repaired to his room, and waking bim up, demanded that his money left in the office be returned to bim at once.

Some contusion followed, during which Cannon hid himself until the next landing was made, when he es- caped from the boat. Upon eonaulta- tion with some of his friends, Captain James Lee decided to send Morgan s body ashore at Burgett's in order that an inquest might be held, whicb was done, Captain Wynne Cannon, one ol tha clerks of the boat, oeing leit wun u to attend to the inquest and interment of the body. There was a re mor prevalent through- out the city to day to the effect that ir 1..4 lnA. .tml mnA Ifille.l Kv Jlu s . Captain Wyane Cannon.

Her cabin is splendidly arranged, and is larirer thaa half tha hotela on tbe Conti enL Her state-rooms ara superbly furniahed and splendidly ventilated, and her table is loaded three times a day with the delicacies of both Northern and Southern markets. Wa can say nothing mora about this moat splendid steamer than, has already been said by a thousand tongues, tut of her gentlemanly officers too much cannot ba said. No one ever traveled in her but will say that, as tha F.epublic exceeds all Whars ia tnag aiucepce, so, do her olEcera ia their ef forts to make all on board feel at home t their constant attention to thea I want, aad comforts.

Tha manner of his taking off is of course a mystery, but it is sup posed that ba died of heart disease. A Tennessee patentee named May nard has invented a new wheel for pro pelling, which suits the Secretary of tha Navy to such an alarming degree that he has ordered his Chief Eugioeer to ex perimeul with it upon several large ships. Our well known Nstbville correspond ent sends the following telegram: " Tbe Ry man-Arthur difficulty has not satis fied Old Rlunderbnll, of tha Kvansville Courier, and with renewed vigor he is now going muchly for Nashville boat men. Uo it, reel Tha Maude has two and a haif acres of bales of cotton to load before the wharfmsster will permit her to depart. The Surveyor of the Port of Nash ville will have to resign unless the frac tional interest sale, in the Klla UugliH. become more frequent. All tha river men were out at the Ty pographical picnic last night, and en joyed themselve. " tbe best in the world."
