PUBLIC LEDGER Office : So. 18 Madison Street. Monday Evening. Jn. lil. 1874. THE POOE-HOUfiE. The cbarues made by the late Grand Jury against those in charge of the poor house are of too shocking a character to be forgotten by the public without a legal investigation. A suspension of opinion has been asked, and for the present con ceded. Such a question belongs to the courts, though we are not awaro whether indictments have been found against the managers of the poor-house. They should demand a trial, or at least an in vestigation, if they are innocent; nnd if guilty should be punished to the ut most extent of the law. A few facta in regard to the poor-house may not be de void of interest. We present them with out intonding to affect the present issue made against its managers one way or the other. The old Tope place, some five miles north of the city was pur chased for the county by the Poor-house Commissioners in the latter part of the year 1812. The place was in a dilapi dated, tumbledown condition, but was repaired as well as could be with limited means and time, and on Christmas, 1872, the poor-house people, fifty in num ber, were moved in. There were accom modations for only about half the num ber. The commissioners conrinuea to make repairs and improvements as rapidly as the money was available. Two houses were added to the old building, each Bixty by sixteen feet. It shortly became necessary to take the insane from Dr. Allen's asylum to save an enormous expense one dollar and a half a day per capita. The State asylum for the insane at Nashville was over crowded, and Shelby county had more than her share. Some were sent back, and the county was compelled to make some special arrangement for these un fortunates. Two more bouses were built at the poor-house for the in sane. The total number of occupants increased from fifty to one hundred, many of them totally helpless and un able to get off their beds. Fifty out of the one hundred were sick at all times, and the rst unable to work. The work done on the premises and the farm has all been hired. Subsequently two more buildings, each 125x18 and two stories high, were added to the place. A fence was built to enclose the buildings and the yard for exercise. A tank was built and bath tabs provided for the nse of the inmates. Tbe seventh building was added for cook and dining rooms; it is 40x20; also, a wash-house, furnace, kettles, etc., and other outbuildings. A large well has been dug; also, a cistern repaired and other improvements made, including repairs on the old buildine. All this has been accomplished by the commissioners in a little over a year. They have certainly manifested much energy. The names of these gentlemen are Wm. II. Sneed, Win. II. Hoegel and Henry T. Jones. It will be perceived that the poor-house of Shelby cou nty is a large institution, in which the people have made a very considerable investment. Of the internal management we know nothing, except the grave charges of the Grand Jury, which, as yet, are unan swered. We are informed that sufficient food has been furnished, as the bills will show. Its cooking is another matter. It is an unfortunate state of affairs that' the insane should ever be sent to the poor-house, but there seemed to be no other alternative, unless they were kept locked up in the county jail or let out to private institutions at a very heavy expense. The lust Legislature made an appropriation to build an insane asylum in West Tennessee, and three commis sioners were appointedvthe Governor to select a location. We hope, in view of the late startling disclosures, that they will get together and act promptly that steps may be taken toward erecting the West Tennesiee Asylum as soon as pos sible that this afflictud class may be secluded from the rest, of mankind and Kiven the strict professional treatment tbey require. While it is important to locate blame only where ii should rest, it is equally as imperative a duty to keep the helpless classes separated and prop erly provided for. The glaring fact stands forth that we have no proper place for the insane in Shelby county. The only plaee for them is in a regular State In sane Ansjlum. Johm Ri'krkll Yorsa, formerly man aging editor of the New York Tribune, hat assumed the same position on the Herald. He is a splendid journalist, but has one blemish on his character, which will be tbe target of all tbe spiteful rivals of the Herald in New York.

A Urge amount of bonds have already arrived here, and the State au thorities have been notified that there are nlenty in New York awaiting the pro cess of funding. It is thought that2o00 of the bonds will be funded next week, commencing next Monday. The au thorities have made arrangements tor the funding of bonds amounting Jo f(i,fl00,000. Tub confirmation of Caleb Cushing as Minister to Spain will probably occur in the Senate to-day. LATEST TELEGRAMS. NEW YORK. New Yo'bk, January 12 A special to the Times from Madrid says: Gen. Lopez Don Enequez telegraphs that Atalaya Castle is in the hands of the Government troops, its garrison having been forced to surrender by tbe heavy cannonade. He has summoned tbe other forts and the city to surrender to him. Atulaxa Castle is situated on one of two hills on the north of the city of Cartagena, both strongly fortified and in a measure commanding the city. A Bpecial from Key West says the Alaska, Pinto and Fortune are ordered to Tortugas to set buoys for the fleet anchorage. They will probably go Tuesday. The Wachusett went to Cedar Keys yesterday. The Workingmen's Central Council will hold a special meeting this evening at Masonic Hall to consider the pro posed parade of the workingmen lo morrow and take action thereon. Carl Vallentinewaslarrested yesterday on the arrival of the steamer Hamburg, charged with a heavy defalcation com mitted in Berlin. The amount involved is said to be over $30,000. The prisoner occupied a high official position in Berlin, and will be held for extradition. The Herald this morning publishes a list of prominent steam vessels from this port that during the past seventeen years have been wrecked, burned, stranded, sold into foreign service and destroTed. The total number is 347 steamers of 386,012 tons. The closing meeting of the American branch of the Evangelical Alliance took place last evening at Steinway Hall. Several emiuent divines were on the platform during the proceedings. The large hall was crowded to its lit most capacity, and the proceedings were' of an interesting character. Each speaker in turn commented on the unprecedented progress of the Alliance. The meeting opened with prayer by the Rev. Way land Hoyt, after which addresses were made by Wm. E. Dodge, Chairman of the meeting, Rev. Dr. Washburne, Rev. Dr. Genz, Rev. Cohen Stuart and George Stewart. Saturday night a detective of Newark, N. J., arrested a widow named Stoddard and her son, residing in Harrison, N. J., on suspicion of being concerned in some of the large number of robberies recently committed in that neighborhood. Goods valued at $1000 were found in the bouse and seized. Henry Roth, druggist, New York, whose house was robbed five weeks ago, identified a portion of the goods. The woman and son were cap tured only after a severe struggle. They were committed for trial. Saturday oh Wall street afforded an other illustration of the old rule that on a " bull market Saturday is always a day for selling out to close the week's trans actions," and therefore shows low prices, while on a " bear " market it is for the same reason always the day for cover ing shorts, and therefore shows an advance. The stock market was again excited Saturday, prices advancing to the highest point reached since the panic. A memorial to the Western Union Telegraph Company, calling for a divi sion of stock ou hand, seems likely to be taken np by the entire street, many prominent operators and heavy stock houses haviug already signed or agreed to sign it. They claim that Commodore Yanderbilt is committed to the policy of dividing the earnings, and particularly to the policy of dividing the Weetern Union surplus; that they have the right to ask that the principle be carried out it in this as well as forme; cases, fcnd that many of tliem.have bought and held it in this faith. Some believe that the movement is really managed in the Com modore's interest. There is also a quiet but strong buying of Union Pacific stock on the part of a wealthy New York clique, with, it is said, the object of effecting a change.in the manngementattheensuing election. The contest, it is believed will be bitter, and in the event of the New York clique sueceeding.tbe UnionPacific office wiil be changed to this city. All present indications in dealings on the streat inspire general confidence, and tbe bulls express most positive assurance that the upward movement of stock will continue. Dinheanl Room-mat. Aiiaxt, N. Y., January 12. Usury McArdle, a room-mate of James Fallon, both boarding at No. 56 North Ferry street, in this city, disappeared late on Saturday, evening and Sunday morning Fallon discovered his twelve years' earnings, amounting to nearly f 1S00, to be mising. It is supposed that McArdle went West late last night. The police are working up tbe case. CINCINNATI. Clst.1XNiT1 j4DuarT n.-Jeremiah B:ackburrli of the firm of j.

In thia onnrt tn-dnv Mr. John P. Trezevant and Sam Hirsch were ap Dointed Notaries Public, The following order was paBsed.with reference to the County Poor-House: Whereas, The late Grand Jury have reported that the Poor-House Commis sioners have wholly failed to discharge their duties as such commissioners, ana have further preferred charges against the appointes ot saia commissioners, that if true demands the sverest pun ishment authsrized by law, and whereas iiiat.it in th narties implicated by said report, as well as the rights of the pub lic, demand a mil invesiiKuun i facts connected with the management ot the poor-house of anelby county, in order that the innocent may be relieved f-nm th imnntation Dlaced unon their official conduct, and that the guilty, if such there be, may De punisnea; nu whereas, the said commissioners ask a full and complete invetuigauuii ui emu matters by disinterested parties. It is therefore ordered by the Court that a committee of three be appointed by the Chairman of the Court, composed of one justice and two citizens of eatab liehed reputation for honesty and busi ness capacity, to make a thorough in vestigation into the matter and things touching the management oi me poor house of Shelby county; said committee to examine witnesses; take proof and do whatever is necessary to arrive atttie real facts in regnrd to sid transactions, and report to the present term of tbe Court if practicable, and if natto report at tho next term of Court. On motion of Justice Wallace three citizens, J. J. Murphy, Amos Woodruff and John Johnson, together with two justices, Esquires Brooks and Douglass, were appointed as said commission. 6EI.MA RAILROAD MATTERS. On the resolution of the County Court and order, to-wit: That nc more certifi cates of indebtedness be issued to the Selma, Marion and Memphis railroad, and that the subscription made and rati fied as aforesaid as to the remaining in stallment, be and the same is hereby declared null and void; and it is further ordered that the Chairman of the Court and the county proceed without delay to recover the sum misappropriated, ac cording to the tenor and effects of the bond executed by the President of the said railroad company. On a motion to rescind this order speeches wero made in behalf of the company by General Holmes and Gov ernor Harris, which were responded to by several of tho Justices. The matter will be under discussion for a day or two. Homicide. Henry Benders was arrested last Sat urday evening on the charge of killing a boy named Joe Wyman, in Chelsea, by striking him with a billet of wood. Jus tice Hoist held the inquest yesterday, and the jury returned a verdict of death from tha hands of Henry Benders. The case will be fully investigated this after noon before the Justice.

To uight Lolln, who has been off the American stage for two seasons, will appear at the theater in tho Little Dotective. Lotta has al ways been a favorite in our city, and has never failed to draw crowded houses. In her line, character sketches, dancing, banjo ploying and singing, she excels any other protean actress on the stage. Her vivacity, oddities, grotesqueneas and captivating manners are inimitable. To young Memphis she will always be at tractive; and as for the ladies of our city, they have always been pleased with the little Califoruian. To night she will appear in six different characters, " Florence Langton," "Miss Gultridge," "Mrs. Gamuge," "Harry Rocket," " Dutch Organ Grinder," and " Barney O'Brien," and will introduce new songs and dauces. She will be supported by E. A. Locke, comedian, who will appear as "Lodovic," and will be assisted by the members of the Memphis stock com pany. During this week Zip, or Point Lyndo Light, a new drama, and written expressly for Lotta, will be produced with new scenery and effect. Minstrelsy. To night the California Minstrels of Birch, Wambold k Backus will appear at the Greenlaw Opera House. These burnt cork artists are fine delineators of negro minstrelsy. Instead of the old style of business, we now hear good ballad singing, operatic selections and fine orchestral music. The comic portion of the entertainment is greatly strengthened by Cha'lcy Backus' " Pic tures of Great Artists," in which he keeps the audience in a gasping, breath less condition of merriment as long as he likes. Their quartette is superb, and does splendid executiou in the choruses in the first parts. Birch and Backus are very clever in occupying a considerable amount of time in a quiet, sketching sort of way, daring which they say no end of good things, and mako the multitude quite happy for the time. "The troupe will remaiu through the week, and they announce a new programme each even- Ma8(jueiuib Ball, The Confederate Relief Association bal masque, to take place on Thursday evening, the 22d nstant, will be largely attended by our people. The proceeds are to be divided between the different orphan asylums of Memphis, and this fact of itself Is suffi cient to causo thousands of people to purchase a ticket. Already costumes are being prepared by those who expect to attend. The managers are gentlemen who fully understand the proper man agement of such balls, and are fully prepared to meet all tho exigencies of the occasion. The utmost decorum will bo preserved, and not one of the hun dreds who attend will fail to be inter ested and delighted. White's Opera House.
