Monumental picnic at JanWPark on Saturday next. . Grand concert at the theater next Friday evening. The picnic season was interrupted by a wet rain yesterday.

General Council meetiog this after noon. Let the wharfage tax be done away with. The case of John Jefferson (colored), indictment for murder, is on trial in the Criminal Court. There are over eight hundred vaults in the city yet to be cleaned out by the Board of Health. Knights of Innistail picnic to-day at James' Park. Owing to the heavy rains it was postponed from yesteriay. Elder C. B. Hassell arrived in the city last night, and will preach at the First Baptist church Thursday night, the 4th. Read Recorder Winters' card on his action as to the -robberies committed by insolent and armed negroes at the Na tional Cemetery last Saturday. Negro vagrants, whose occupation is stealing, should be "pulled in!' by the police. There are at least five hundred negro gamblers, confidence men, thieves and loafers in Memphis. Suburban Maud Mullers now wear im mense straw bats and carry miniature gardening implements, so as to give them a sylvan and rural appearance when their admirers call. The Ledger is indebted to Mr. C. H. Leonard, of the junior class, far an invitation to attend the commencement ball of the University of Mississippi at Oxford, to be given en Thursday, June 25th. 'Yesterday Felix Gilmartin, who was robbed by the negroes at the National Cemetery on Decorati6n Day, entered suit in the Second Circuit Court against tbo Pole Bearers' Association, claiming f 100 damages. Tbe DeSoto Bank has retired from business, leaving as its heir the Bank ef Commerce, which institution will take charge of its accounts. The DeSoto will pay dollar for dollar. ' The cause of the retirement is, that its charter is about to expire. , , Yesterday Harry Mellersh, aged four teen years, was accidentally shot by JeBse Taylor, of the same age, while both boys were fooling with a loaded pistol. The pistol ball passed through the lower lobe of the left lung, causing a most dangerous and probably fatal wound. The negroes of Nashville on Decora tion Day had terrible fights at the Na tional Cemetery, and their conduct at Nashville was only exceeded by their infamous conduct at Memphis. And yet there are a few white men in our city who favor the civil rights bill for elec tion purposes. The darkies of the city are exercised over the plundering by their race on Decoration Day at the National Ceme tery, which conduct proved conclusively to tbe intelligent white race that the black race regard liberty as sjnonimous with license, and civil rights as permisj gion to rob. The penitentiary stares some of them in the face. The white men who participated in the National Cemetery decoration and dese cration, gotten np by negroes, are in the position of the poor animal who was caught in bad company and suffered in consequence. Hereafter let the negroes go in a gang to themselves, and let white men do likewise; but politics often makes strange bed fellows. A critic in a morning journal asserts that "between the puffing of friends and the floundering of editors the author (of Lois Carroll) has no doubt experienced singular sensations." Placed in the dilemma above figured our "Two Selves" should experience double sensations, but as Byron has it, " It were much bet ter to have both sensations than neither." Memphis Fire Relief Association pic nic at the Exposition building on the 18th of June. On this occasion there will be a parade of the Fire Department in which will appear the "Invincible Fire Company No. 5," with their "hose carriage," which was taken from Mayor Loague's negro firemen in Chelsea. The carriage will be one of the great attrac tions of the day, even although it may not be manned by the " necessary appli ances " of our little j"ker and jester, Mayor Loague. A man named Carroll got into a diffi culty with some persons in Happy Hol low and borrowed a pistol for the purpose of inflicting punishment on hfs foes. While in pursuit of bis alleged enemies he saw Mike Athy, a fireman, walking on the railroad track not far off, and at once opened fire upon him, discharging six barrels of his repeater. One of the balls struck the silver watch which Athy had in his fob pocket; the ball smashed the crystal, bursted through tbe works and lodged against the back case. Time, in this instance, saved Athy from etern- itj . ItcNoto Bank. In to-day's Ledger it is officially an nounced that the DeSoto Bank has ceased to do business, its charter having nearly expired. The DeSoto has con solidated with the Bank of Commerce. Messrs. Elder, Dunscomb, Wood and Leech, former stockholders in the De Soto, have taken fSO.OOO stock in the Bank of Commerce, of which Mr. Elder has become a director, and to which business he will devote a large share of his valuable time and attention. The accession of deposits and capital of the old DeSoto to the Bank of Commerce makes this latter institution one of the strongest in the city. The large busi ness of the old bank has been trans fprred tn tha new consolidation. For KncrliT. X ... - -rs t. cu'To- .ine cara oi . o. r. uvjw, ouenu, appears in to day's Ledger.'

Tbo outlay will be only fifty cents; you will never miss It or regret It During the recent visit of the friendly Warm spring Indians who were our allies in the Modoc war, to San Francisco, they were taken to the Palace Amphitheater. At one part of the performance Monsieur Dockrill appeared in his Indian act on horseback, and toward the last he sud denly leaped down and " sculped Joe Kenebel, the clown, of the remarkable wig he wore. At this tbe Warm Spring allies became wildly excited, and it was with the greatest difficulty that they could be restrained from leaping into the arena and taking a hand in tbe pro ceedings. An immense uproar ensued, but the red men were finally quieted down and resumed their seats. Ihey, however, persisted in giving Mr. Dock rill two hearty recalls. As he made h,s bow for the second time the Warm Springs greeted him with a mighty and ear-piercing genuine Indian yell. Civil Bltjbts.

The funny man of the House this win ter is said to be Mr. Nesmith, of Oregon, who tells on himBelf some very amusing;, stories. He served one term in the Sen ate several years ago, and a few daya after he was sworn in he was passing; one of the cloak rooms, and inside were " Fessenden, Morrill and several others, whose names we can't call. They hailed him, invited him in, and after convers ing for a few moments, they asked bint very abruptly: . " Mr. Nesmitb, you have come from a very wild country, where you say the greater portion of your life has been passed. Will you tell us what struck you on coming to the Senate?" '' Well, gentlemen, when I took my seat in this august bodv, said to be com posed of the brains of our great coun try, I was overwhelmed with the stra nge- ness of the one idea, bow I came to be hre." "Oh I Ah! Ugh I Sol And then. Mr. Nesmith, what then what next cause for wonder?'' "The next thing, gentlemen," an swered Nesmith, slowly gathering np his . great length, "that came to me and puz zled me more than the first thought, was -how in the dence all you other fellows got here." There was a shot, and from that day these solemn old fellows, who had thought to overawe by thtir pomposity the crude young Senator, were his sworn friends . and never neglected to tell this story.
