Snow, about which so ranch vile poe try aud worse prose has been written, full slowly this forenoon. Mr. A. Lacomba is cativaasiug the city for subscribers to the Christian Union Henry Ward Beecher's paper. This morning the sleet hung in crys tals on the telegraphic wires tliroii;liout the city, and presented a beautiful sight. Mr. Garland P. Ware, formerly of this city, has been elected Mayor of Browns ville by the Republicans of that burgh. The-Aldermen and Councilmen elect have been notified to appear at the City Ilall on the 14lh instant to-morrow week. About twenty thousand dollars were scattered between Pinch and Fort Pick ering by the candidates during the late election. In the Criminal Court to-day the case of the State vs. Charles Clinton, indict ment for wife murder, is progressing be fore a jury. In the First Circuit Court to-day the case of L. R. Patton vs. D.

The Genral Council will meet to morrow and prepare to give place to the newly elect, who will take charge on Wednesday week. Thnt cheerful looking youth, the monthly bill collector, has retired for a few weeks, very much to the satisfac tion of the impecunious. The Pole Bearers celebrated Independ ence Day this forenoon at the Exposi tion Building, and will hold a bal masque at the same place to-night. Candidates for the shrievalty who will struggle for the prize in Augimt next, are hopping up all around us. They are taking time by the forelock. Slippery pavements last uight. made the midnight promenader feel its if he was sober, because the sliding around lamp posts was unavoidable. Several respectable citizens slipped np and took reserved seats on tfie side walks this morning, and in connaqnetice mingled profanity with their tnars. 55Mr. Wm. M. Boyce, agent for the " Cross and Crown," a book lately no ticed, has his office at 274 Second street, with the National Publishing Company. Mr. John L. Norton was elected County Trustee by the County Court yesterdny. Thirteen candidates were in the field. Mr. Norton will make a good official and will give a good bond. The. campaign News still exists, but its daily chapter on the Memphis riots has been discontinued. The News has discovered thnt Know-Nothingism has long since played out in this laud of ours. Every tree on the sidewalks west of Court Square has been killed by the hack horses of the stand. It took sev eral years to grow these ornamental trees, but one season sufficed to destroy them. Tkis is vandalism. The Register republishes the stale jest of the News when it says that the Ledger Liner is a candidate for Re corder's clerk. The Liner is not an aspirant for that or any other office, and would not accept any. Can the Register men say as much? We fear not. During the progress of the play of Divorce at the theater last night many of the audience shed tears. The weep ing business off tho stage is particu larly affecting and correspondingly fashionable. Divorce will be played again to-night, and " If ye have tears, prepare to Bhed tbem now." Such is life. Our Ledger Liner yes terday saw John Loague on Main street, and as he passed (hot the Liner, but Loague), a citizen remarked: "There goes the biggest man in Memphis." Had Mr. Loague been defeated the citi zen would have expressed a different opinion, but success in life as well as elections gives a golden hoc to all things. At the August election the sovereigns who fought the last election and the sov ereigns in the county outside of the city will have to vote for candidates for the following important offices: Sheriff; Clerks of the Criminal, First Circuit, Secoud Circuit and County Courts; County Trustee; State and County Tax Collector. Make np your slates in time, gentlemen, and commence electioneer ing, for there is no knowing what a day may bring forth. An effort is making to resurrect the old Democratic party of the bluffs by inaugurating, in due time, warl meetings to select delegates to an old fashioned county couvention preparatory to en gaging in the August elections. The people displayed too much independ ence in the late contest for the chronic politicians ef the " rings " who wish to creep and crawl into office. The cry now is, let ns win the Irish back to the old party and break np the combination which elected Loague. Freak Flak. Latest arrivals at the Maryland and Virginia oyster depot. W. H. Warrington & Co., HO 277 Second street Dressmaking MPOI,TAST AMUSEMENTS. Mxhi'BisThcatek. The Fifth Avenue Theater Combination company played Divorce at the theater last uisht before a large audioncc, notwithstanding the inclement and disagreeable weather. The play is well written, and contains good scenes and situations. Of the company it can be said that it is the very best that has ever appeared in Memphis.- Each actor and actress is perfect in his and her part, and the play runs smoothly and evenly, defying cen sorious criticism successfully. Nothing could have been better presented before the public. Th leadiug members of the company Messrs. Boniface, Porter, Snyder, Ityer, Hawk, Farren and Misses Langler, Monk. Harris, Pike, etc. are artists in tiic ii prolession.and will become favorites with ur theater-going people. The leading lady, Miss Langley, pos sesses a well-modulated and pathetic voice. She enunciates distinctly, and thoroughly understands the staze busi ness. Last night, in thu roll of "Miss Fanny Ten Eyck," she evidently labored under the effects of a severe cold, and in several of the scenes wherein love and anger were called into action she was a little tame and monotonous. That she possesses cleverness and versatility and is an accomplished actress cannot be doubted. Miss Ada Monk, as " Ada Ten Eyck," was sprightly, vivacious and interesting, and at once secured the favor of the audience. Mr. Boniface gave a good exhibition of emotional act ing, showing that he possesses consider able dramatic ability. The play ran for three hours and a half, and the audience was delighted. This is a sufficient com mentary on its success and popularity. Divorce will again be presented to-night, and no doubt to a crowded aud fashion able house. Olympic Theater. Manager Buch aunn continues to attract crowds to bis theater every night. The French Can Can, with new scenery and surround ings, lai beea introduced. In the way of jig dancing, vocalism, instrumental music and comicalities, Manager Buch anan has a first-rate show. A change of programme every evening takes place at the Olympic. Whitb's Opera House. Manager White has broughf out twenty splendid stars, who appear nightly at his Jeffer son street Opera House. The pro gramme of entertainment consists of vocal and instrumental music, fancy and clog dancing, specially acts, com edies, etc. Strangers visiting the city will find White's Opera House a pleas ant place to while away a few hours.
