Chapped hands and face are the most serious annoyances that farmers, and people who labor much out of doors, ex perfence from exposure. Exposed per sons, especially children, repeatedly suf fer intensely Irom great cracks upon the hands, thai often bleed. It is cruel to allow one's self or others to suffer in this way, when the tneass of positive prevention are so easy to be had, and so cheaply, as to pay tea cenU for a cake of Hand Sapolio. Hand Sapolio is not only better than the costliest soap for removing dirt, but it prevents chapping, and renders the skin soft and pliable. Soli everywhere. dtw-145 j.nx;:u i.i.ms. Probate Court to-day. The Bartlett Circuit Court adjourned for the term yesterday. Emaciated spring chickens still com niand a formidable price in Memphis. Counterfeit ereeuback currency is floating and circulating throughout the city. ' St. Louis offers no premiums for cot ton to be exhibited at the State Fair this fall. The Probate Court is in session to day, and will also be in session to-mor row. Sneak thieves continue to prowl through the city. Keep your doors lacked. Fast driving on our principal thorough fares is again becoming a fashionable amusement. Self-denial in eating and drirkiag is the best physician during the prevalence of summer complaints. The water-work muddle was referred to its appropriate committee in the Gen eral Council at the meeting yesterday. Several athletio Mempbians are now standing at Venice on the Bridge of Sigh a palace and a prison on each hand. Complaint has been again made that drays and coal carta string out on the street and prevent pedeatriaus from crossing. ' Th Carolina Life Insurance Com pany has ceased to exist, it having been swallowed up by the Southern Life Insu rance Company. There will be at least four or five hun dred persons out to the races at the trotting park this afternoon. Five horse start positively. The big Raleigh barbecue and dance at Raleigh to-morrow. Trains will run almost hourly. Uandwerker's brass and string bands will be in attendance. . A negro was captured on Beal street last evening. In his carpet-bag, which he carried under his coat, was found a heavily loaded six-shooter of the army pattern. The . value of farm production of Shelby county is estimated at over four millious of dollars by the census men. Shelby is by far the most productive county in the State. There will be a three-minute trot out at the Hernando Park to-morrow after noon between three well known horses. The match is a private one, but visitors will be permitted to attend. The cotton boll fiend is on the war path visiting newspaper offices and bending beneath the weight ot a single cotton boll, carefully wrapped up in a section of some old newspaper. We learn that the parties in charge of the property upon which Moore was killed tefuse to pay the scavenger bill for cleaning the vault upon the premises even after it had been declared a nui sance by the Sanitary Sergeant. The Searcy (Ark.) Record says that Memphis is loosing ground by high freights, because it costs fully ono-bulf more to get freights from Memphis than from St. Louis. If such be the fact, it should be remedied immediately. Robert Still, the widowed husband of the murdered colored woman, Lou Por ter, was arrested by the police authori ties last evening on the charge of bus picion of murder. The evidence against the prisoner is almost exclusively cir cumstantial. A Union freight railroad depot, near the elevator, at or near the foot of Beal street, is the thing most needed at pre sent. The elevator proprietors, the Memphis and St. Louis Packet Com pany, will erect a grain elevator when ever the Union freight railroad depot is located. Hack No. 10 was sandwiched last eve ning by its runaway horses between the lamp-post and store on the southeast corner of Monroe and Main streets while the driver was taking a glass of beer at Luhrman's. Result -driver minus five cents for tbe beer, and the store minus a frame awning. The Financo Committee of the Alder- meus lioard nas under consideration the St. Bridget's school-tax question. Several other schools in the city intend applying to tbe General Council for the exemption from taxes, which is guaran teed them by constitutional and legisla tive provisions. Sheriff Doyle and assistant left for Nashville to-duy with fourteen criminals for the penitentiary, including Surgeon, the murderer of the boy Murjshy, and Eason, the murderer of Ed. Lyles. The State gets sixty-three years of labor from the Memphis delegation to the criminal legislature of tbe State. A certain young and well known Front street merchant last night sent a telegram to his partner at Crab Orchard, Ky:. as follows: "Isaiah. 9th, 14th," and this morning received the following reply: " Put another bucket of send in the sugar, and re-goose tbe cotton samples." It is hardly necessary to mention names, but if the newly made and happy father is questioned upon the subject he will produce the dispatch. In St. Louis she is called the "Social Evil," in New York the " Demi-rep," i New Orleaus the " Nymph du Pave," in Cincinnati the "Soiled Dove," and in Memphis the " Girl;" and yet all these persecuted lost ones are human beings, and are imbued with the same feelings, the same recollections of innocent cliilJ hood and the same hopes of pardon in the world to come as are the very best and purest of earth. The murderers have had quite an ex emption from punishment in Memphis. When convicted their death sentences are commuted by the Governor, but a number of them have never been diacov- ered. Th murderers of General Bank- beaJ, Addie Jones, Tom Malone, Frank Moore, the negro woman I-ou. Porter, and dorena of other person have never been brought to justice. Memphis seem to be th murderers' Paradise, where they cau so unwhipptd of justice. Geueral Myers, the head of the Signal Service Bureau at Washington, should purchase Captain Jack, the Modoo hog of th Chickasaw Bluffs, and set him up on end a a barometer. Tbe barometer invented by Torrecelli, who discovered the vacuum above the mercury in the tube, i imperfuct a a weather gauge or iudicalor of atmospheric change when compared to Captain Jack. A signal ler and forcaater of storms the "hog" beats tho signal service badly. Twelve hours before a rain or other storm Captain Jack can be seen carrying around in his mouth straw, barrel hoops, iron heops, etc. When this is seen you may put up s'l your money that a storm is approaching from some point of the compass. Sentimental and unmarried Memphis ladies will fiudsolaco in the following spiritualistic description of dead lovers who make love in Platonic style to earth ly maidens. Laura Cupby Smith, know ing how it is herself, report hat " the lover of my girlhood now walk the view less causeways of the air, and inasmuch a he was cultured, lofty-souled and large-hearte i, he doubtless loves and ia beloved by many a fair and queenly wo man in 'that lan J of light and song, yet he finds time to return to earth' turbulent scenes and bathe my toil-worn spirits in the deep waters of his passion ate and intense affection, and those chords in my inmost being that first re sponded to his touch, remaining mute in tho presence of all others, thrill and vibrate, as of yore, in an ecstacy of rap ture when swept by his spirit touch."

The subjoined correspondence be tween Bronson Bayliss, Esq., of our city, and the Hon. A. Dudley Mann, who has resided in France for many years, will be. of interest to all readers. Mid die-aged persons will remember that Colonel Mann was the originator of the movement nearly twenty years ago for direct trade between Norfolk and Eu rope: MR. BAYLISS LKTTER. . Uraxo Hotel. Pakis. July 22. 1373. lion. A. Dudley Mann : DkarSik Knowing that you have always maintained a deep interest in a direct trade between the Southern States of America and Europe, peraiit me to call your attention to the city of Mem phis, letiuessee, U. is. A., as an impor tant cotton market. Memphis is situated on the east batiK of the Mississippi river, 800 miles from its terminus in the Gulf of Mex ico, with connections by rail or water with the slapping at ew Urleaus; also, Norfolk, callunore, Savannah. Mobile, Charleston, rbuauelplua, New lorkanu Montreal. Through bills of lading can be had on cotton to all of the important cities of Europe. Insurance etlected as desired. Nego tiations are made without difficulty by sight drafts on New Orleans and New lork, tune bills, sight or short sight on London, or 111 any way that is customary, We can shin either by rail or steam, us consignees may direct; in met, can transact busmess ou tbe same terms bb it is done in other cotton markets in the United States. Time at present from MemphiBto Liv erpool by steam 25 to 30 days; sail GO to T.i days. - Meraohis is now the third if not the sec ond cotton market in the United States, the receipts annually near 500,000 bales, which receipts are composed almost en tirely of Arkansas and Mississippi cot tons, and preferred by the spinners of our country, as well as py ureal Britain and Germany. Direet trade with Europe is what the South has long desired, and immigration to this section is what they most anx iously wish, but I merely propose now to draw your attention to Memphis as one of the importcnt cotton market of the world, and that it is to the interest of manufacturers to buy tneir cotton as near the place of production as possible, and not to pay middlemen commissions and profits only so far as their interest , 1 1 - . 1 , 1 IS subserved, ujjuu &ue eauiu naiui.i laws of trade it is the interest of the consumer to buy directly from the man ufacturer when practicable. Orders sent to Memphis direct by the spinner can be as readily executed as if they were seut by a deuler, and 1 claim that our cotton will suit in every particu lar for making all descriptions of goods, the liner as well as the coarser qualities, which I know from experience, having houcbt for the mills in our country as well as for England for tbe past twenty years. , Renewed efforts arc being made in nnr section ot country to establish a trade with the different countries of Eu rope, and we are satisfied that it is the interest of those countries to co-operate with us; and one mode ia to appoint consuls or vice consuls in our port ns a preliminary procedure. Memphis is now an established port of entry, and goods can be shipped di rectly here from any foreign country. The charge for purchasing cotton here are commissions 2j per ceut; dray age, labor and shipping, 40 cents per bale, which covers all expenses at this point. We are in cable communication with all parts of Europe. .... Navigation of the Mississippi river to tbe Gull of Mexico 1 nvtr obstructed ; neither is rail communication with any of the Atlantic ports. - ' Memphis is situated near the line of the great cotton belt, and from thi sec tion we draw our main supplies. Our cotton has only to be known to become a great favorite in hurope, a it is now with the manufacturers of our own country. If iiiuis ol the ncn governments 01 Europe will now make an effort to ae- cure ine iraue 01 lue ;xuin, wo mm. will succeed sooner or later. Trusting that your former efforts to establish this trade may result in great good to the Southern States and Europe, 1 am, yours truly, Bboon Baths. Tbe Hon. A. Dudley Mann replies at length, from which we take th following extract: May God speed you in your noble en terprise. Von have re-excited my larg est sympathy in it behalf. I solemnly premise yon all the aid that so pawerless an individual as myself can rotnmaud. Memphis eujoTs an enviable locatiaa upon Ibe snap of tha North Asaenran continent. Kxtended trade snoM centr there if 'the mighty producing and contributing region west and south of the Allegheny mountains can bn inllu en cod to act upon tbe past and sound est principle in political economy "buy where you can cheapest and soil where you can sell dearest."

There i not the shadow of a reason, ex cept the inglorious one which Proceeds from "don't care" alothfulness, why the tribute money (for such it practically is) paid lo New York and cities elsewhere, in " middle men commissions," devour tbe fair earnings of the agriculturists, should not be immediately and finally wmiueiii. Ilea tsail. A slim docket was presentod to Judge Winters for inspection thi morning, and he, with hi usual grace and dignity, disposed of it in short order. Robert Steele, the supposed murderer of Lou Porter, hi wife, was brought out for trial, and several of the witnesses being absent, tbe case was postponed, and Robert sent to jail until Saturday afternoon. Martha Bart, tbe mother-in-law of the darkey Pete Wormly, plead not guilty to the charge of assault and battery made upon her son-in-law Peter, and proved by her statement that Peter fre quently beat hi wife, and it was for this that sb threw scalding water on him yesterday. The Judge, taking a disin terested view of Peter and Martha, fined them each 110. George Dixon and Lucius Robinson, two negro till-tapper that detectives McCune and Brown captured yesterday, after a week's search, were sent to jail in default of 110,000 each, for larceny. George Washington, an Alrican bur glar, who has plied his trade pilfering the houses of absent citizens, was caught in the act yesterday by Sergeant Arrata and Officer McElroy, and, with a bundle of linen that be had "collected," the truthful George was marched to the lock-up, from whence he went this mor ning to jail, without bail, upon a charge of larceny. Fannie Brown, African, for being dis orderly, paid a 10 fine. John O'Brien, for prowling, was fined 125. Ellen Stowe no kin to Beecher Har rietwas extremely disorderly and jeal ous of a colored damsel, her jealousy ex tending to a first-class pounding, tor which she was fined $25, and upon going out of court remarked that she " didn't care a d n 11 twas jU. the judge added $10 for the remark, and Ellen then "didnCt care a cuss how much 'twas so tbey gave her good grub."

Esquire Spelman will have to bring forth the wisdom of Solomon this after noon when he hears the case of the State vs. George William (negro), who is arrested on the oath of Madame Anna, alias De'Knight, alias Angelina Wolf, a white woman and fortune teller. Madame Anna gets out a Stale warrant for George, charging him with illegally cohabiting with herself. Some weeks since these parties were before the Re corder for the same offense, and the Madame expressed her undisguised love for the man of color and her desire to wed him, but George, having a correct idea of the laws of Tennessee prohibit ing intermarriages between blacks and whites, obstinately refused to enter the bonds of matrimony. A gardener in England claims to have discovered a method of varying the colors of flowers by means of chemical applications to the earth in which they grow. " Stealing money is a serioas business out here." Baid a Colorado paper, " but you can kill a man, and all they ask is that you don't leave him in the way. It is reported that Anna Dickinson is going upon the stage, and that she will make her debut in a dramatic version of the Scarlet Letter. FINANCIAL AaYD COMMERCIAL. MONET.

The Supervising Inspectoral Wash ington yesterday began a full investiga tion into the burning of tbe Wawasset on the Potomac. Say the Cincinnati Times: "The demand for Ohio river and Kanawha salt this year has been fully equal to the supply, owing to several furnaces above not having been in operation. There is very little in store-houses here, and a season ol low .water would soon nnu agent unable to fill orders. S. W. Cof land and Val. P. Collins are the origi nators of a new enterprise at this point, having in view the docking and repair ing, of barges, flats, etc. The new docks are already in course of construction, opposite the foot of Central avenue, and rill be ready lor business inside of sixty days. Messrs. Cofiand A Collins win be able to accommodate everal barges at a time on their docks, and calculate to keep a force of over fifty men constantly employed. They will also be prepared to dock steamers of a lesser length than on hundred and eighty feet," I n. ia. yt 2 1 2 4 A Yellowstone river, Montana, letter of the .list ultimo, to the New York Tri bune, seat from Bismarck, August Cth by telegraph, says: "The steamer Josephine, owned and commanded by Captain Grant Marsh, who brought the Key West up to Powder river, has he.n successful in passing the rapids and h. traction near Powder river, renon.,1 by General Forsythe. and proceeded up the Yellowstone with a load of for. f... the expedition.
