Wbe Cass Tell What a day may bring forth? Nobody 1 Yet everybody can tell what the day of the drawing of the last Gift Concert in aid of the Public Library of Kentucky will bring forth, as the ponderous wheels of fortune revolve; we all know that they will inevitably bring forth fortunes of greater or less amount for some, and disappointment for others. No ticket holder can tell but that that day may bring forth for him the whole of his fu ture happiness. For full information apply to O. H. Samuel, No. 6 Court street. ' Persoaal. Captain J. C. Fleming, Treasurer of the City Railway Company for the last three years, has resigned the position to enjoy a season of rest, and left to day for Knoxville, East Tennessee, his old home. He is an efficient business man, a popular gentleman, and we are glad to say that he does not contemplate leaving us permanently.

The stores of Memphis are closed early each afternoon. General Council adjourned to next Wednesday afternoon. Buttermilk is rapidly becoming one of the popular beverages of Memphis. Not a Memphis poet or poetess has as yet thrown off a poem on the comet. Many people are departing the city to remain away nntil the September rains fall. Flirting on Main street is called act ing on the fquare Court Square, of course. There is a quite a demand for small, comfortable suburban dwellings, wherein mosquitoes are not found. Boiled Memphians just from Hot Springs, Arkansas, look like boiled lob sters on their return to the bluffs. You can now see our friends, the Irish Radical nominees, in alleys engaged in serious conversation with the Africans of the day. : Amusements of a dramatic nature will be dead here until September, when Manager Davey witl open np tbe theater with fine attractions. Barbecue and public speaking at Bart, lett next Tuesday. This will be the first of a series of meetings to be held throughout the county. Every hand cart is now used to trans port dead dogs to the left bank of the river Styx, where they can howl for old Charon to carry them o'er the ferry. In the Second Chancery Court Sabina Kunholz filed a petition for divorce against Charles Kunholz on the grounds of failure to support, abandonment, etc. Colonel M. D. L. Stewart and family left on the City of Chester last evening on a trip to a cooler clime. Mr. Benson, the well known music man, did likewise. Councilman Jack Walsh's seat has been declared vacant, he being County Undertaker, and the City Attorney has been called upon for an opinion in the matter. 8heriff Jack Doyle left for Nashville to day with a batch of convicts number ing twelve persons, whose aggregate terms of State service amount to fifty nine years. The breastworks araund Fort Picker ing are to be leveled by the Vandals who have no reBpect for these war relics from behind which a hostile gun has never been fired. The Clerk of the County Court is getting rish on marriage licenses. Doz ens of these billet douxhave been issued within the past few days at a cost of $3 50 each, retail, Two firemen promoted and appointed by the Fire Chief to fill vacancies were at once suspended, they not being of the " necessary appliance " complexion or proper shade of politics. Othello, the Moor of Venice, could unfold "a plain nnvarnished tale," meas uring three stickfuls in length, but in this he is discounted by the comet by at least three millions of miles. People have commenced complaining about the heat. Yesterday some one remarked to a well known Judge: " It is very hot weather, sir." " No, sir," was the curt answer, " no hotter than it is every summer." One of the prettiest blondes of our city is writing a novel which will be published in blue and gold ere long. The story wil take in Memphis society, which will be treated after the style of Thackeray, or ia other words, "riddled." When you accost a Councilman sud denly on the street he pulls out an in junction and commences reading it, so as to prevent his suspension or removal from the Council Board by reason of that city charter on "contracts." Tbe Milan (Tenn.) Exchange desires to know why it is that tbe Memphis pa pers are always one day behind the Louisville journals in telegraph news. This conundrum is respectfully referred for solution to tbe Associated Press men. The Investigating Committee of the Common Council, will meet next Mon day, and will continue iu session until all charges against Councilmen and city officers, as to inelegibility, are disposed of. This is right, and right wrongs no tuan. Councilman John Roush.of the Fourth ward, resigned his seat yesterday, he being declared ineligible to office owing to that terrible section 11, article 6, of tbe charter. Several other Councilmen are likewise ineligible under the same section. Last Monday was the anniversary of the battle of tbe Boyne, a little skirmish which took place ip Ireland a few year since between the forces of William, Prince of Orange, aud King James, but which row has caused thousands of rows since between Orangemen and Ribbon men. There are five thouiaud dogs in Mem phis. According to the most accurate estimates made, tbey cost on an average twenty-five cents per week, or sixty thousand dollars per annum sufficient to run all our common schools twelve months in the year. In this no estimate is made of the expensive law suits grow ing out of difficulties between belligerent curs and the fights resulting therefrom between the dog owners. Jack Walsh says he was fined one thousand dollars for burying paupers and leaving their coffins sticking out of the ground, and now the Common Coun cil want to turn him out of bis seat for the same reason. Be pleads "once in jeopardy " as a bar to any new trial or conviction. Belles and beaux when seated on a lounge and talking sentiment are nightly disturbed by the marauding bat, which compels tbe gentleman to rise indig nantly and call for a broom, and drives the lady under the piano after she has covered her head with a six inch square lace handkerchief.! An effort is making in the General Council to reduce the rates of wharfage for white men, and also to raise the' rate of per centage on collections from ten to twelve and a half cents for the benefit of the negro Wharfmaster Shaw. Why raise the rate of per centage on collec tions, Messrs. city legislators? It is rumored that a certain prominent bank has pledged itself to go on the bond of a certain Radical nominee, pro vided he shoild be elected. That office will be "farmed out;" and Memphis has had a little experience as to the effects of the office farming business the man elected becomes a deputy, and the bondsman a clerk or . Yesterday our Ledger Liner was shown a letter written on birch bark. The writer was up In the mountains of New Hampshire trout fishing, and had to improvise a sheet of note paper. The bark was white, strong and thin, admirably adapted for the purpose se lected. At first glance it looked like new fashioned Freneh note paper, with water lines. Modesty would dictate that when charges of ineligibility are preferred and pending against a Councilman thatlbe Councilman should vacate his seat for the time being. But modesty is a word that does not seem to appear in the dic tionary of a few of our City Fathers. The word "cheek" occupies a promi nent page, however. Councilman RouBh, the retired mem ber from the Fourth ward, has during his term of service been one of tbe most active and best representatives in the General Council that tbe people of Mem phis have ever had. We should like ex ceedingly to see him again sitting at the Council Board. Why not re-elect him at the next meeting? Some days since if you were to inform Jack Walsh that he was not County Un dertaker you would get a fight on your hands, but now, Jack discovering that such an office renders his seat in the Common Council vacant, sues out an injunction, alleging that no such office as County Undertaker exists. But the city charter says " office or agency under the county." "Ain't they lovely?" "They are ex quisite!" "0, my I they are the prettiest I ever saw I" are among the exclama tions heard in fashionable circles in reference to the wedding cards issued for the fashionable wadding at Calvary Church last Wednesday evening. They were executed by Tracy 4 Co., who, we learn, have just completed a like order for another fashionable wedding to take place next Tuesday. Rearing young mocking birds is the fashionable amusement of suburban belles at present. This introduces the subject of ornithology when their beaux appear, which subject is discussed if not in' a learned at least in an animated manner. To see a pretty maiden stand- ing'on tip-toe pouting her lips and chirp ing at an unfledged mocking bird gives the beau an oportunity to revolve in bis mind the subject of matrimony. The tail of tbe comet is gradually en circling tbe earth, but at an almost im measurable distance. To the inhabit ants of the moon he earth presents an appearance like that of Saturn, the comet's tail resembling a belt around our orb. It may be asked, " How do you know this to be a fact?" and to this our own astronomer promptly answers, " That's none of your business?" Our Ledger Liner has been invited by two " Old Citizens "'to appear on the po litical plank and run for the office of Councilman, but he obstinately refuses so to do, he being particular as to his associates and not desiring to become a square on the checkered board of the Council Chamber. Besides he is ineli gible, having a contract with the city to see that article 2, section 5, of the city charter is enforced. Mississippians on arriving in Memphis enjoy the mint julep and other bever ages even more than the native Mem- phian, because in our sister State the new liquor law requires that no person shall be licensed to retail liquor until he has first secured the recommendation of more than half the men over twenty-one years of age, and more than half the women over eighteen years of age, in the orporatien or township where he desires the license. Alderman Andrew Davis, of the Third ward, having received the negro conven tion nomination for the office of Clerk of the Criminal Court, resigned his seat in the Board yesterday, and C. W. Met calf was elected to fill the vacancy. Andrew hai been threatening to resign for several months, but to this favor has it come at last; yet we sigh sadly when we reflect upon the fact that A. D. will not be able to reach the goal of his ambition by being elected C. of C. C. Councilman Jack Wakh, of the First ward, being County Undertaker, went to the Council yesterday armed with a writ of injunction to prevent the Coun cil from enforcing on him article II, section 5, of the city charter, which says: "No person shall be eligible as Common Councilman who holds or dis charges any office or agency under the city of Memphis, county of Shelby, State of Tennessee, etc." When the injunction bill shall have been dismissed then Jack's case will be called np.

The Sandwich Islands have a public debt amounting to fj ,0'0. A Schoolboy' Letter on Cblckena. Most usually it takes two eggs for to make a chicken, because, if you will nut eighteen eggs under a hen only about nine of em will baton. A. he a is so care less and stubborn that .most always she won't cover her eggs all over, and so tboy get chilled; then they are everlast ingly gone up. Also, the rats will rob a nest ; so that, if you get half of a brood, it is a tol'able crop, and you should be tnanktul. Inen, 1 tbink, it stands . to reason this ought to prove what l said at hrst. A hen which has got a young family ia more crosser than any- tning else which can be compared wita oer under the sun in tbe United States. There never was a thing which can ruffle its feathers up backwards and rage worse than a fool hen. A turkey gobbler will do it; but he don't go off into a red hot passion about it, and make a fool of his self, and get enemies all for nothing, like a hen would. A chicken in the spring time, which was put to hatch in March, if it has good luck, and don't die of the pips, or gaps, or cholery-morbus, or get drowned or something, will be big enough to sell to the restaurant in June. They will fetch $7 a dozen, and a chicken is more popular where it is a spring chick en than if it would live long enough to get as tough as Methuseler. They gay that a spring chicken is a luxurious thing for broil and mix up with toast. That's what I've heard. Once in a great while we have spring chickens for din ner. Then we have the preacher, or else some company, and I eat at the second handed table; and I can always tell by the savory smell agoing on in the kitch en that broiled chicken ought to be good enough for anybody. But if I can't get something to eat more substantialler than a Bmell, I always fall back on roast beef. A chicken don't gather shrewd ness like an owl, and it never picks up any wisdom. It is not a talented thing like a tox. It you can show me a more stupider thing than a hen, I wish you would trot her out. The rooster has got what little sense there ever'was in a fam ily. It is one of the worst difficulties with a chicken that she don't know its place. She won't stay in the barnyard, where she belongs, anyway you can fix it. If your mother has got flower-beds in the front yard and it's a mighty cu rious mother which ain't every last chicken on the place will get in to scratch them, if it takes till next Christ mas; and then good-bye to the bya- cinthes, and crocuses, aud jerryanthens, and all that kind of foolishness. Then is the time that yon want to have two jackets on, or eke to forget to come home early, if it was you that lett the lattice gate open. Anyhow, that s my advice. Also, a hen is hard hearted and cruel, and will kill every little desolated stray chicken who tries to associate with her own brood; and this is a good enough reason why she is like a stepmother. If a hen once gets a fair hold of a little chicken, to shake it by the nape of its neck, it will never kick again in this community more than twice. The fre quentest bad habit which a hen has got is going off to the neighbor's to lay; also it is too . soft a thing for the neighbors; but it is generally chronic for a hen to do it, and the only way to cure her is to cut her bead off and boil her down into soup. She won't go to the neighbors to lay many times after that, I don't think. ' Oae-and-Thre." A burlesque of Victor Hugo's novel of "Ninety-three," is now appearing in the pages of Punch, under the title of "One-and-Three," and it is so clever that its authorship has been attributed to W. S. Gilbert. As a taste of its quality, we offer the following selections from a late instalment. Tbey are not copious enough to allow the reader to appreciate the travesty of one of the most characteristic scenes in the novel, but they will indi cate the success with which Victor Hu go's peculiar style is hit off: A few minutes later and tne captain s gig had been brought out. Bobdilot explained the nautical terms for this gig. They were two shillings for the first hour, eighteen nence for the sec ond. Naturally the Old Man began with the second. The captain s gig, once hired, was im mediately lowered. This did not alter the price. It was a bargain. An agree ment. X here are certain provisions in every agreement. These were placed in the gig, They were, a dozen of cham pagne, lres sec, a Strasbourg pie, a Welsh rabbit, a raspberry and currant tart, three tinB of Australian meat, a re frigerator, a cut off the joint and a saus age machine. 1 ill now tbe old man bad been the distinguished passenger; now, out ef the light, he could ns longer be distinguished. In the darkness a beggar is as good as a king. I he start was quickly made. I he boat got well away from the vessel. The old man in tbe stern, the sailor who had vol unteered in the bow; it was merely a bow without a trunk. In the stern the old man lay asleep on the chest Ihe troops on board were the mounted marines. Tbey were divided into officers and sub-marines. They Dailed the white feather to the mast. Then a din like the Deeling of three hundred oranges burst over the depths of the sea. Onlv those who have peeled three hun dred oranges can know what this means. The sailor spoke: "Do you know where we are now" The old mao replied: "I can tell exactly by my magnificent compass- , i.. He opened his chest, and produced some notes. He said: "This is the upper sea, A little lower down is a flat. We can land there." Day appeared. Without Martin. The two sat in the boat. A white and, apparently, a black man. The latter could have explained this had he bee a willing. He could hare said: "It is ne cessary I should be kept dark." He did not say it, however. The si lence remained unbroken. A silence onee broken cannot be mended. The sailor broke it. He looked fixedly at the man in the stern, and said: I am the brother of him you ordered to be pitched over." It is estimated that the colored people of Savannah, Ga.. lose about JJj.lHH) by the failure of the Freedman s Savings Bank and Trust Company.
