There was bnt a slim ducket at the Recorder's Court this morning, and no case of imprtanee came up for hearing. One or two landlords who rent "gilded mansions" to female proprietresses were arraigned, but had their cases continued over until to morrow. A warrant was issued on the complaint of a citizen for the arrest of the "Nashville House" on Madison street, which case will come up for trial in the morning. This morning the police authorities succeeded in finding the owner of the gold watch which detective Mcune re covered from the negro burglar, Zip Coon. It belongs to B. D. Grover, Esq., agent ol the Louisville and Nashville railroad, at Brownsville, Tenn., and was stolen on the night of the 18th inst. A letter informing Mr. Grover of the fact was forwarded to-day.

If you want to cure an attack of dys pepsia take a ride in a buggy or hack ever the rotten Nicolsun pavement. Dan O'Connor, who was charged with larceny, has been honorably acquitted by Justice Spelman, there being nothing in the charge. The Appeal man imagines that he has discovered in a professional dog trainer in this city the noble scion of an Eng lish lord, "you know." The Nicolson pavement must be re paired as soon as possible; so say. the business men and all those having the best interests of the city in view. The Fire Board yesterday suspended Acting Captain Sullivan, the Mayor's appointee for the No. 4's, for thirty days, for disorderly conduct and fighting. Hop Johnson, city editor of the Ap peal, has returned from Nashville, and will once more preside over the local columns of our Second street cotempo rary. Memphis has several poets and poet eBses, yet the muse has been silent of late. Is there not inspiration in tbe Beecher matter to start rhymesters np Mount Parnaseas? To morrow week, the 3d proximo, pri mary elections for delegates to tbe Con gressional and County Conventions will be held throughout the wards of the city and country districts. The erection of new buildings is not flourishing in Memphis. Not over one hundred thousand dollars worth of buildings are being erected in the ciiy so say the architects. The Courier-Journal of Tuesday, says "Track, wet end reporter of the Mem phis Avalanche, passed down on the Parker last night. He likes Cincinnati, but thinks her swill-house is in a state of decay." Mr. Joe Carey, of the firm of Duffy & Carev, was married at St. Peters church this morning, to Miss Emma Davids, a beautiful and accomplished lady. A large number of ladies and gentlemen were present to witness the ceremony. To have a trotting horse in training out at the Hernando Park is now the hieht of many a would be sporting man's ambition. The old 'plugs in training is a tight to a man who has seen trotting stock in other sections of the country. The alarm of fire at ten o'clock this morning was occasioned by the burning of a small frame on the corner of Cyn thia and Vance streets. The firemen were unable to reach tbe fire in time to render any assistance or save tbe build ing. A stalk of cotton containing four bun dred and forty bolls was placed in our office yesterday. It was grown on the plantation of Cptain Williams, who resides near Horn Lake, Miss. The stalk is five feet in height and resembles a young tree. Every night hack loads of men and women drive furiously np and down the principal streets. The passengers are Heloises and Abelards who stop at drink ing saloons, order out refreshments, and then visit suburban beer gardens of the Jardin Mabile style. The greeting now is, " Are you a can didate for the Legislature?" The an swer invariably is: " Well, I'm in the hands of my friends, and have been called upon by a number of leading citi zens to make the race." "Many are called, but few will be chosen." Scores of boys, dressed in the Adamic costume, bathe in the river at the eleva tor every afternoon. The current is rapid and the river is deep, but the boys are " ducks," who are at home in water. It is not only a dangerous but in other respects an objectionable practice, which should be prevented by the police. The Nashville Union and American puts Porter at tie head of its columns j and calls it "Democratic State Ticket," thereby giving the go by to the platform which calls the party, "Democratic and Conservative." The Union and Ameri can had better give the party the proper name, even if there is nothing in the name of a rose. There are ear marks in the writings of all newspaper men which, althongh not discernable to the outside reader, are very plain to the pencil slinger. . When we see the phrase "silly twaddle", in a morning journal we can always detect the writer who invariably wrestles with that expression whenever he indites an article. Wherever you go on the street cor ner, in saloon, parlor, boudoir, on 'Change or in private office the con versation invariably drops down on the Beecher-Tilton scandal. It is the ab sorbing topic of conversation from vari ous standpoints. The reporter, who has to search the city, has to listen to the wornout subject so often, that he, too, is almost ready to say, " I wish I was dead." When a man offers himself for a legis lative office the inquiry Bhould be, Has he the ability, the ' proper claims for office? Does he represent any leading interest in the city, or if elected will he or will he not be a wooden man who represents nothing and nobody? Of course, to represent candidates for the United States Senate will be the under ground issue, but the true issue is to represent the best interests of the over taxed and law crowded citizens of the State. On Court street yesterday afternoon a gentleman and lady were conversing when a veiled lady catre from the north gate of Court Square, advanced and struck the other lady a heavy blow in the face. There were screams, subdued but feminine , ejaculations, and re proaches heard, and hair-pulling was in order. ' Tbe gentleman endeavored to stop the fight when he discovered, to his horror, that tbe attacking party was his wife. Love is to man's life a thing apart. 'Tis woman's whole existence and in consequence results too often in jeal ousy and scandal. Freali OjiUn Arrived!!! Madame Vincent has received fresh Baltimore oysters.

England does not id all cases visit the sins of the father upon the chil dren"; on the contrary the fine old con stitution, in some cases, has been wont to crown the children with honor on the very account of tbe paternal peccadil loes. The Dukes of Richmond, St. Al bans and Grafton are living and heredi tary illustrations of this. All three of the noble Dukes are direct descendants of illegitimate sons of Charles II, the "merry monarch." Tbe Duke of Albans is tbe descendant of "sweet Nell Gwyune," and these Dukes enjoy their honors to day; aud their castles and splendid incomeSj for the very reason that tbey are left hand scions of disso lute royalty. This is their only title to nobility; and thus, in past generations the House of Peers has more or less been recruited. The ancestress of the Duke of Rich mond was that beautiful, brilliant andl fascinat:ng Louise de lierrenrrolt, whom the crafty Louis XIV sent over to Eng land to charm and corrupt the easily to be charmed and corrupted English King, Charles, easy going and open to bribery of both the leminine and pecuniary sort, fell at once into the far from pain ful snare. He became the facile slave of Louise, who was an exceedingly bright woman, and raised more spiteful envy in the breasts of the court beauties whom Lely has so well preserved to us, than any fair stranger of the time. Charles created her Duchess of Ports mouth, and Louis XIV, delighted at her winning over th.p Eiielish King to his designs, added to this distinction by making her Duchess of Auoigny in France. Her son by Charlea wai a bright and enterprising young fellow, and, on coming of age, was created Duke of Richmond in England and Len nox in Scotland, was made a Knight of the Garter, to tbe disgust of some old dukes and earls wbo had been crav- ng this honor for themselves, and ac quired Goodwood as a ducal residence. His Bon, the second Duke, was quite a character in the times of the two first Georges, and became Master of the Horse. The third Duke became yet more distinguished. He was Secretary of State in tbe elder foxs administra tion, Master of Ordnance under Rock ingham, and tben under Shelburue, a firm friend ef Fox, a Whig to t)i core, and crie of Chatham's most effective allies in defending America, ile wassn accomplished and popUnr man, good speaker and prond of his liberal views Henry r ox, Lord Holland, rrle" his sister, so he was the unMe of the greater Charles Jamts Fox; despite which the Duke was a member of the Cabinet of theyoueger Pitt, Fox's rival.

Harding, editor of the Indianapolis Sunday Herald, shot Sol Moritz for ' seducing his daughter. Moritz will recover, out win lose an arm, wuiuu was shattered by one of the shots. Flora Harding was a brilliant, accomplished girl, having a bright literary future be fore her, but who nnfortunately fell ft victim to the wiles of a man. who pro fessed to be her father's bosom friend. She confessed ber sins to her father and took poisoo, her sensitive soul shrinking from the sneers of a heartless world, -which would forever point at her the finger of scorn and speak of her as a lost and wicked woman. Her father, while on his way to a physician's office, met Moritz on .the street and shot him several times. The following tribute to the memory of the dead was written by tbe unfortunate journalist in the pret ence of the dead body of his child. It is a wail of a broken heart, a crushed spirit, which cannot fail to touch the sympathetic chords In every human breast: THft BEREAVED FATHER'S FAREWELL, Indianapolis Herald, August 23 HARDING At the residence of bar father. No. 20 Pratt street, on Wednesday last. Miss Flora K. IUbdino, daughter of Ueorge C. -Raiding, aged nineteen years. A noble life, full of promise, has gone out in shame. She loved much and she suffered much. Her sorrowful soul, re leased from earth-burdens, has gone to meet its God, to lay before Him the cruel wrongs for which earth has no redress. Poor, fond heart, ill-starred from birth, ysur tempestuous beatings are stilled, your restless longings will trouble no morel Hers was a joyless childhood, warped and distorted by relentless cir cumstances. Her womanhood is blasted in the bud. Despite unfortunate traits and unhappy moods, in which she seemed to move and act as if under some weird spell, her underlying nature was noble, generous, unselfish, self-sacrificing, with an honest pride which would scorn to do a mean action. The unhappy circum stances attending her childhood bad im pressed her nature with an ineil ace able tinge of melancholy. She was despondent always, rather than san guine. "Papa," she said to me once, when a cherished desire .was thwarted, and I was endeavoring to con sole her; " don t distress yourselt about me. My entire life has been a disap- lointment." Notwithstanding the Soul ier tints in her nature, she was at times almost unnaturally vivacious But even in her most cheery moments an appar ent consciousness of the falseness and hollowness of earthly things could be noted. Her deepest and profoundest feeling, the one which was ever present and was never overshadowed by dou bts, or obscured by less worthy sentiments, was love for ber unhappy father. This love had taken root in ber infantile mind at an age when impressions are ' easily effaced, but it grew without nur ture, and seemed to strike deeper its roots and grow mora luxuriant in leaf and bloom tbe more it was deprived of light and air. It survived absence, ap parent neglect, hostile influences; and so soon aB she was of age Bhe came to the father whose love she had never doubted. In her religious nature Bhe was pecu liar. She had the profoundest venera tion for Deity, ai.d a sublime confidence in His justness, but she had no sympa thy with creeds or the forms of religion. She believed in the law of compensa tion, and having known but little save nuhappiness, she believed that the fu ture, either on earth or in heaven, had recompense in store for her. She often jested on the subject of suicide, and, on one occasion, being reproved and told that God frowned on self-murder, she said, " Papa, I am not afraid of God." 1 here were few brigbter intellects than Flora's, and herfutare was full of prom ise, she nan a remarkably felicitous command of language, and was exceed ingly versatile. While she kuew noth ing of politics, her familiarity with re condite subjects was wonderful. In reasoning she was subtle, and in thought she was powerful and searching. She bad determined on literature as a pro fession, and had she lived would have made her mark ic the world of letters. The cruelest reflection in this hour of bitterest agony is that her father might have been less Bteru aud more sympa thetic in bis intercourse with her, though he could not have loved her more. With two such natures an estrangement is apt to raise np an invisible but impassable barrier, and while there mar be no spoken word of unkindness, tie reserve is infinitely more cruel and ratting than words could be. ihe unhappy secret th first withholding of confidence caused such a feeling, arJ this was only broken down the night Vefore her death. when, on her father's breast, with her arms about bis ne'. nearioroaen sobs she told him t-le dreadful story, and pleaded for bis fo-giveness, not so much for her sin as for the want of confidence in him. All as forgiven, and father and daughtr ones more reconciled. iv.,,, then she had determined on sui cide, and that last, heartbreaking inter view to sweet to remember, aud yet so saJ must be invested with all tbe sanc (:i'of a deathbed revelation. through that long lait day of suffer ing I watched with ber, alternately cheered by hope and torn with the an guish of despair, and with the last gasp, as the suffering soul took its tremulous flight, two great tears cams from the ... J 1IJ .L nimy eyes ana rouea over ine ii.-r, across which was stealing the shadow of Ihe Death Angel. She hoi gone to her God, who will judge her not by the iron rule which brings all natures to a com mon measurement, but according to her deserti. God could nt be God without being just, and with Him I leave my dsuchter. But it djes seem as if Eft should have some thunderbolt, red with uncommon wrath, to strike the "retch who pursues his victim, with foul and venomous tODgue, into the grave itself.
