Slagle. on the grounds of cruelly, abandonment and in continency. The cowhiding by a female, which was written up in yesterday's Ledger, is said to have been done through mistake, and that the wrong man got it, which is very unfortunate. Secretary Toof, of the Chamber of Commerce, has been of invaluable as sistance to the commercial reporters in getting out their annual statements of trade and commerce. Governor Brown has issued a procla mation to the judicial, ministerial and peace officers of the State with reference to riots and disorders such as disgraced GibBon county a few days since. Our cotemporary, the Appeal, says that a Memphis minister last Sunday "dealt with ' scandalous sins ' without gloves." We should prefer being gloved when touching on this scandalous ground. "Hang out the banners on the out ward wall! the cry is still, they cornel" from the springs, lakes, mountains, brandy and watering places of the North and East, to again engage in business on the bluff. At the Christian Brothers' College this morning fifty-one students had enrolled their names and were received. This is certainly a good opening, and indicates that our people fully appreciate the necessities of a collegiate education for their children. The first bale of the new cotton crop was received from Mississippi on the 11th of August by Stanton & Moore. The first Arkansas bale was received by Ely, Earvey & Richardson. The first Tennessee bale was received by Ely, Harvey & Richardson. In to-day's Ledger appears the an nouncement of John Overton, jr., as a candidate for State Senator. Mr. Over ton served as a member of the lower House of the Legislature, and won golden opinions from all by his'course as a law maker, giving complete satisfac tion to his constituents of Shelby county. Mr. B. C. Bledsoe announces himself as a candidate before the Democratic and Conservative Convention as a can didate for the office of Representative cf the lower House of the next Stato Leg islature. Mr. Bledsoe would make a good and energetic Representative, nnd if nomin:it"d and elected wiil serve the people faithfully and well. A correspondent advices us that " it wis au error to state that to any, Sep tember lat, was the beginning of fall, but that tbo fall season commences on the 23d of September, Astronomically the third season (autumn) of the year begins at the equinox, when the sun enters Libra and ends at the winter sol stice, but in popular langUBge autumn comprises September, October and No vember. Last Sunday Rev. I t. Walk preached his fifth anniversary sermon at the Lin den street Christian church. Since the reverend Doctor took charge of the congregation there have been 232 add tions to the church; and removals by letter, 77; deaths, 32; for unknown causes, 3; total, 112. Net gains to church. 120. When Dr. Walk took charge there were 176 members; at present there are 2'JC, or nearly double the original number, after deducting all losses. During this period of time th4 church has raised $25,000 for various purposes of a. benevolent character, and have finished the building, the congre galion to-day not owing one dollar. ThiB speaks well for the Christian church and its management The Kentucky Moramolh Cave. Hundreds of Memphians Visited the Kentucky Mammoth Cave during the present season. From a visitor just re turned we get the information that the place to leave the railroad for the cave is Glasgow Junction, which is three miles nearer the cave than Cave City station. At Glasgow Junction the Proc tor Heuse is the place to stop at, ample arrangements having been made for all visitors. At the cave the aiammotn Cave Hotel, of which Colonel W. 8 Miller is general superintendent and Captain E. G. Wilcoxen is clerk, offers every convenience to visitors. Colonel Miller has charge of all explor ing expeditions, and furnishes pro1 visions, guides ana everything calculated to make the tourists happy during their ten hour exploration of the wonder of the world. The arrange menta made to entertain visitors are superb, and no more polite or cleverer gentlemen exist than Colonel Miller and bis assistants. The wonders of th Mammoth Cave have been described many a time and oft, but new discover' ies are made every season by the enter prising guides. All visitors Bhould get off at Glasgow Junction, at which point they will find comfortable conveyances to the cave, and arriving there will find the hostelrie of Colonel Miller, the Superintendent, a most agreeable place to secure refreshments and rest from the toils incident to the subterranean explo rations. Bnrglnry unci Atlemptfd M artier Last night two gentlemen rooming in the fourth story of the r-ew Bethel build ing, corner of Main and Madison, heard a cry for help coming from an adjoining room. They rushed in and discovered Mr. Bird engaged in a violent struggle with a black burglar. On the approach of the gentlemen, who were armed with whatever weapons they could pick up the robber released his death grip, and rushing across the room leaped out of tbe window, four stories high, and was heard to strike the pavement, but strange to say, could not be tound either dead or alive this morning. The Mr. Bird was of the "mocking" species, and the burglar was a black rat which had en tered the cage and seized the bird by the throat, but turned loose and leaped out of tbe window when the gentlemen, who heard the bird's cry of distress, en tered the room. That a rat could spring to the pavement from a height of over fifty feet, and then get away, is one of those mysteries past finding out. A MISERABLEJXISTENCE. Life is ene of the wonders of the world a most mysterious mystery. We only know that we have life. Whence we obtain it we know not, and whither itgoeth when the body dies and dissolves, ia beyond the compass of mortal vision. Life, after all, is a humbug. It doesn't perform what it promiies; it holds out to as false Inducements, and net un fre quently plucks every beautiful feather from the bird of hope and digs many a grave by the path of glory as we pass through this traniitory term of probation. Let us remem ber the truthful Rosa Concha, which has been a'eolace in our lonely hour, and bear in mind that Sol Coleman, the originator add sole pro prietor of so fine a cigar ia still retailing them over his counter at 5c each. The only place in town where the genuine article can be had ia at 2C0 Main street, near Washington. Do not hesitate to call on Coleman, who sells you a fine cigar made of pure Havana fillers for five cents. Xrirro unrirlstr Arrealrd. Last uifiht Aaron Brown, a negro, was seen entering the store of Charles Bur ton, corner of Beal and Shelby streets. Mr. Burton got out of bed and walked n on the robber, who fled precipitately as Mr. Burton .fired five shots from a re peater at him. Soon afterward Brown visited a negro ball near by, and seeing officer Davis asked him if he had heard the t.ihtol shots. Officer Davis walked down Beal street, and meeting Burton was informed that his store Lad been entered and robbed by a negro named Aaron Brown, who had been formerly in his employment; that his store had been robbed repeatedly of late, and t!mt the rubber must have had a duplicate key. Officer Davis hurried back to the r.epro ball, and with officer Odell nabbed the robber Drown, and on hW person were found a duplicate key to Brown's saloon, i an English shilling which had been taken from the money drawer, and other things which were recnizjd by Mr. Burton as his property. This morning the burglar was committed to jail by the Recorder in default of bail. Mkhfhis, Ten., August 22, 1974.

A few weeks since the negroes were holding a midnight meeting near Egypt church, four miles north of Ruleigh, and bad out pickets to guard against intra sion. A negro, name unknown, at tempted to slip up and see what was going on, when the pickets, thinking that he was a white man, fired upon him and killed him. The body was taken charge of and buried by the negroes, yet no in vestigation of the murder has been had and no inauest has been held. Let the murder be investigated. Mxlh Ward.

Strickland and Mr. Royer, of Uannings' depot, which termi nated in a fight and the death of the former. When separated it was thought neither party had received any serious injury, but after Mr. Strickland had gone home be was immediately taken very sick and commenced vomiting. A physician was sent for but no relief could be afforded, and ha died on Monday morn ing. A post mortem examination was made which recalled the fact that he was injured inwardly from a kick received in the abdomen. Mr. Royer, we learn, sur rendered himself to an officer to await an investigation of the matter. Jackson Courior-Horald, 29. The crops aloug the line of the rail road between here and Nashville are in a deplorable condition. With the exception of two or three fields in the bottom, near the Tennessee river, there is scarcely a crop of corn that will muke as much as two barrels per acre, and many farmers will scarcely make the seed they planted. In Humphreys and Dixon counties the peanut crop, which is one of their leading staples, is also cut very short. Constable Birdsong, of the Sixteenth district in this county, with a posse of men brought to this city, Wednesday night, seven negroes, charged with com plicity in the Pickettville affair, and lodged them in jail for safe keeping. Three of tbem had been tried before a justice in Gibson county, and failing to give bail were ordered to jail. They were all committed on a mittimus from the Gibson justice. The negro.boy who attempted to vio late the person of the little white girl, near this city, was captured near Tren ton Thursday evening by a party of citi zens from the vicinity where the crime was attempted. When discovered the negro was sitting on the roadside put ting on Jiis shoes. He was brought back, some distance this side of Hum boldt, and disappeared from his captors. He wm apparently nnconcerned about his fate. Trenton News Gaiette, 27. Of the sixteen negroes taken Irom the jail last Wednesday night, four were tound dead. It is now generally con ceded and believed that ten of them were not shot at all and are now se creted somewhere in the country.. This entire community is indignant over the disgraceful act; and when tbe Memphis Appeal says that its occurrence near this place will place a stain upon us which years cannot wipe out, it does ns and our entire community, though un intentionally, a wrong. This commu nity had nothing to do with the affair, could have nothing to do with it, because the law does not make it the duty of the sheriff to prapare against such a con tingency, and he who thinks that it was in the power of an; body to have pre vented the deed without being prepared beforehand, is either a knave or a fool. We regret it. We indorse the action of Governor Brown in offering a reward for tbe apprehension of the perpetrators; but we are also of tbe opinion that just the same reward should be offered for the apprehension of the balance of the gang of armed negroes, who alone have been the cause ot all this excitement and lawlessness. Jackson Whig and Tribune. 29. On Thursday night thoughtless and lawless persons fired the colored church in the Sixteenth district of this county, burning it to ashes. The outrage was committed by unknown pnrties, but the respectable people of tbe district assem bled and denounced the act as cowardly and villainous. The perpetrators should be bunted down and made to suffer the full penalty of outraged law. The insolence of uegroes like Oscar Williamson, Countee and Ed Shaw is hard to bear, and it is natural that the organization of the blacks into armed bands for the purpose of sacking towns and villages should excite indignation, but our people should remember that all disturbances in the South are hailed with, satisfaction by the Radical party of the country. Humor f Use Scandal. From the Rochester Democratand Chronicle. The champion interviewer lives in Brooklyn. There are a good many of him, and he is remarkably alive and healthy. He stopped a funeral proces sion the other day. " See here," said he to the manager ot the hearse, " give ns just a moment, you know." " What the deuce do you want?" faid the hearse man. "Your opinion regarding the Beecber scandal, ' and the champion reporter produced his book. "Go to the go to Moulton," said the hearse man, and be drove on. The reporter was indignant, but he was not to be in timidated. He followed the procession to tbe grave. He interrup'ed the bear ers in their melancholy work. He asked the mourners, " Come now, what do yoa think of the Beecber scaudal?" Ttey replied between sobs that we must really let them alone, and why in the name of propriety didn't he go to the go to Moulton, for instance I" " I think I never saw such internal im pudence before in my- life, said the champion reporter; but he was still con fident and determined i am tne ... , tt o . resurrec began the minister. i;ee here," whispered the champion reporter, softly tapping him on tli shoulder, busmen ot importance, om leuow. i bfg your pardon, but it admits of no delev."
