It will be retneiubered tlint the Mr. Afllick referred to was connected with the jewelry establishment of F. II. Clark i Co.: A aueer litigation, growing out of the cholera scourge iu Memphis last sum mer, is now in progress before tho Dis trict Court, in Washington. The com plainant is Davis A IHick, who seeks to recover possession of his infant grand daughter, who is said to be the sole heiress of a large fortune in Memphis, coming to Tier from her parents. In May last Alllick was suddenly called to Mem phis by the death of bis son, he having fallen a victim to the epidemic, which had just then begun. Upon bis arrival there he found that his son, his son's wife and two daughters, had likewise died. Distracted by this overwhelming calamity, that had in throe days taken every member of the family but this babe, the cholera still raging, all business suspended, and having no oppertunity to settle his son's affairs, no Courts being in session, he placed the babe in the hands of a Mrs. Rogers, nraraiaiuir to call tor it in one month. Two weeks subsequently, however, the respondent in the case, a relative of the babe's mother, went to Mrs. Hvgori and forcibly took the child from her, in spite of her remonstrances and tears, and without any authority tirouijnt it to WasL'OKton, where ha baa changed the name to Rebecca Afllick, and bad an nounced his intention of taking posses sion of the property to ibith the child had fallen hcif.

If the officers of the law cannot protect the citizens and their property some means will be used for protection. We are informed that a suburban guard is being organ ized to be clothed with official power, whose design is fo break up the stealing aud robbing that is nightly going on. Let us have several such companies both in the city and country. So says a cor respondent and sufferer. A Happy Han. Notwithstanding the late crisis and the still unsettled condition of the money market, there are many men who may be termed happy, but the happy man of the year 1H74 will he the one who will draw tbe urst gilt in the Kentucky Library Concert, on the 31st of March. The gift is $250,000 cash, and though there are many other large ones (12,000 in all), yet the man who can't be hoppy with $250,000 ought to be miserable. Highway Bobbery.

When be reached the deep cut in Winchester Cemetery, two negroes, or white men disguised, baited him with cocked pistols.

Last night an intoxicated gentleman from tbe rural districts occupied a prom incut place iu the dress-circle during the performance of Alice Kingsbury as " Little Barefoot." The gentleman be came drowsy and pulled off his boots, and was about to remove other article of wearing apparel for the purpose of retiring, when the officers of justice were called in to remove him into the onte air. He resented the invitation to leuve the house, and had to be picked up by force. A stalwart German policeman seized his bands, aud throwing tlinn ovpr his shoulders, carried him out as he would a sack of coffee. The indignant citizen kicked and cursed, but he was removed, amid roars of luughter from all parts of the house. During this re hearsal in tho iln-ss-circle the perform ance ou the Ktugo had to cease. The intoxicated mun was sent to his hotel in a hack, and now, no doubt, fails to recollect one incident of this most ludi crous scene. RlnrTMly MiooIImk Mod.
