State Comptroller Burch is in th city. A few drunken men are arrested nightly. The thermometer indicated 81c' at 12 m. to-day. The grasshoppers, or picnicers, have retired for the season. In New Orleans the street car drivers charge regular fare for dogs. The Jefferson street Opera House is open nightly for the amusement of the public. But fifteen' misdemeanor cases ap peared on the Recorder's docket tbi morning. The Memphis Theater will open on next Monday week with the Stetson Combination Company. When will the sleepy city government consider the fact that Memphis needs at least four additions! fire steamers? Cotton picking is the chief amusement in the rural districts at seventy-five cents. a day or a dollar a hundred pounds. The town is getting horribly dull in criminal matters since the negro outrage on the Pigeon Roost road on Monday last. The Criminal and the two Circuit Courts will be open on Monday, the 21st, on which day the regular fall terms will commence. The next Bensation will be the County Legislative convention, to be held at the Exposition building, on next Tuesday, the 15th instant. The Grand Council of Red Men is in session at Indianapolis. Among the delegates or officers are Wm. F. Mea cham, of Tennessee. In the Second Circuit Court Susan Stamps (colored) filed her bill againBt her absconding husband, John Stamps, and prays for a divorce a vinculo; Peter Lowry, a wife-whipper, was up before the Recorder to day and was sen' tenced to a fine of fifty dollars, or one hundred days on the chain-gang. The marriage bells will soon ring for the married belles of Memphis. Several of the boys and girls .contemplate mat rimony within the next sixty days. Schools are being reopened all over the city. Next week the public Bchools of the city will reopen and then several thousand children will cease to be seen on the streets. The grasshoppers have invaded Brad ley county, Tennessee, and the locusts have come to their assistance. At last accounts tbey weie moving westward and southward. H. Casey Young will beat that dead beat, Barbour Lewis, .three thousand votes in this Congressional district, com posed of the counties of Shelby, Fayette and Hardeman. The desire for rain haB become general since the cloudy weather setiu. People after predicting rain and finding out that their meteorological kuewledge is at fault become incensed. The experimental repairs of (he Nicol son with wooden blocks is not carried on in a scientific manner. The job is a bungling one, and the way the blocks are put down is not the right way. When a white man commits an out rage upon a negro it is nil wrong, but when the negro commits outrages on white people it is all right. Such is the doctrine of the Radical party in Mem phis and Shelby county. Business at the numerous justices' Bhops is dull, so that magistrates, con stables and the host of special consta bles have nothing to do except to play checkers, chess and a game of "sell out" at some convenient beer saloon. A few nights since a Magdalen, resi ding on De Soto street, having been repudiated by her dear lover,- swallowed cold poison with intent to take a summer tour to the next world, but the physicians pumped her out and saved her valuable life. A Memphis belle has fifteen pairs of hoes. Some curious wretch, knowing the length of her foot to be nine inches, has calculated that if each shoe was arranged heel and toe, it would form a straight line of twenty-two and a half feet. Candidates for the State Senate and Legislature are emerging from private life in the hope that by being nominated and elected a career of glory and ambi tion will open out before them at the rate of four dollars per diem during the session. Three or four of the Irish and German Radicals still hang on to the negro party, not knowing how to leave one camp and get into another after their brags and professions before the August election. They were to carry two thous and votes, but they did not carry two hundred. The " Patsy Bolivar " delegates have returned from the Convention, and are now explaining to the sovereigns why this or that man was not selected as a Congressman. The defeated candidates refer to the vote received as an evidence of their popularity and importance to the people. Nicolson pavement is beiag relaid on Madison street, between Main and Front, by contractor Fogharty, who recently finished cn that street an extensive con tract to lay 'down sewerage and make connections with sinks, etc. The pave ment is being put down in good style and carefully. President Robbins, of the Board of Aldermen, returned yesterday from a trip to the sea coast of New Hampshire. He tells of frest and overcoats, which brings a shudder upon Memphians who have been here all the summer perspir ing it out on this parallel of latitude which is 35 and 10 A good joke is told on an energetic police officer, who has been watching fast hack drivin? and the fast people inside, as they plunge along on the boule vard to the beer gardens. Seeing a back be'iDg1 driven furiously down Poplar street, and hearing songs coming from the inside, he stopped the traveling menagerie, when, to his horror, he found the passengersto be a cyprian, a police official and a city official, all of whom were having a good time. The patrol man does not take so much interest in hacks' as heretofore. Yesterday we heard a gentleman solicited to become a candidate and re spond to the call which would be made in the papers. He sensibly replied "Gentlemen, there is no money in the office, hardly enough to pay board at second rate hotel. I have no desire to assist in making bad laws, or in chang ing the good ones. I do not believe, like many physicians, that a constitution was made to be mended. I am making an honest living; so please excuse me." It is a pleasure to receive the follow ing Arcadian or Grangerian item of news from the Trenton News-Gazette, which journal has been apologizing and almost justifying the late murders which disgraced that little village: "On the farm of S. 0. Willey, of Gibson county, a partridge took possession of a hen's nest containing three eggs and successfully batched them, and is now industriously engaged ia raising three full fledged, bona fide wild chickens. They .are as wild as natural born free American partridges, and instead of crowing like other chickens, indulge in first class efforts to whistle ' Bob White, Bob Whitel' " Since that time the notes of the partridges sound like "Ku KIux, Ku-Klux!"

Yesterday Morris Arthis, alias Bob Davis, armed with a peace warrant is sued by a justice of the peace, visited the Weaver Place, near President's island, for the purpose of arresting James Sales, the person described in the warrant, who was also a negro. Sales refused to be arrested and ran, when constable Arthis, leveling his heavy artillery, presented with his compliments a dose of fifteen buckshot, propelled from a double-barrelled shotgun, on re ceiving which the negro fell dead. Dep uty coroner Mat Shelby went down his morning and held an inquest on the Body of the perforated African. The jury of inquest returned a verdict that the deceased came to his death at the hands of Morris Arthie, ' alias Bob Davis, he having received fifteen wounds in the back of the head from pellets of lead, fired from a double-barrelled shot gun by said Arthis. The shootist was arrested and was sent to jail without bail by Esquire Hall, who issued the original peace warrant against said Sales.

Few persons can look carelessly on an object of fanatical reverence and faith to a hole people. The Sacred Tower of Khiva is a plain, round tower, 125 feet in nigtit, without pedestal, capital or ornament of arty kind. Its surface is made ot burnt tiles, colored blue, green, purple and brown, on white ground, ar ranged in broad stripes 'and' fig ures with exquisite effect. It is cov ered with verses of the Koran, and frem its summit the mollahs call the beoDle to the Bunset prayer. The palace, a huge, irregular structure, with external mud walls twenty leet high, has three centers of interest fhe hall of state, the treasure chamber, and the harem. The hall of audience is iperi to the court, Hanked by towers whose decoration re sembles that of the Sacred Tower, has a floor raised six feet above the pavement. and a roof supported by pillars of carved sod. it must have been very like a scene in a play, when tne Ueneral, tne Grand Duke, the Prince, and the others reclined upon the raised stage, and re freshed themselves with wheat en cake, apricots, cherries and iced water, while the band played the ' Blue Beard ' music of Offenbach. Beautiful armor, car pets, coverlets of fine Bilk embroid ery, marvelous in color, epienaia cashmere shawls, three hundred books, many very curious and valuable, were among the treasures of the myste rious palace. The books, bound in leather or parchment, were all beauti fully written by hand, and among thera was the history of the world, and a his tory of Khiva 'from the beginning of time, llow did tne armor, beautuuiiy nlaid with gold, fin its way to tne treasure chamber of the Khan? What is the story of those two exquisitely arrnnirM irnn ntleta. which bear on each a lily in gold, and a crescent of much ater workmanship, telling oi iuo vun- tian knight from far France, who carried the flower device 'of his. land and his lady-love to defeat and connscation by ttfe Saracen foe? A strange suicide occurred in Paris On AUgU&l loui. 1 L mice V ttw. Thursday a fashionable dressed young mian was seen flourishing his hat on oje of the towers of Notre Dame. He threw it down, and then jumped after it. He was picked up quite dead, and so muti lated in the face that it was thought use less to' expose the body in the morgue. rom a passport lcuna on mm u ap peared tbat his name was bmile Jean Christian Hubert, born in London.

RAPE AXD JIlItDER. A Horrible Mnider Ntorr from Hca deraon ( ounlj-Siwll'a Kolrlbotloa Overtakes the lrpf Iralors. From the Drerden (Tenn.) Democrat, 4th.l A young lady of good family, residing in Henderson county, while out walking one evening of last week, was suddenly seized by three fiends in human shape, beneficiaries of the civil rights bill, and carried to the woods, when her tongue was cut out to prevent her cries, and her person outraged by each of them ia turn until their unnatural lust was satis fied. Her prolonged absence caused uneasiness, search was instituted, and ber body was discovered on the follow ing day. The whole country was soon aroused and the perpetrators of 'this hellish deed caught and made to pay the penalty of their crimes with their lives. Again, on last Saturday, four men pur sued and caught a negro at Edgar Station, on the Mississippi Central rail road and bung him to a tree. He was charged with having committed a rape on a white woman living at Fort Jeffer son, on the same road. Mr. Editor, it this the seed Charles Sumner intended sowing when he framed the civil rights bill? If, so, it is working like a charm. The above is from our regular corre spondent at Ralston, who received the facts as published, from a gentleman living in Henderson county, near the scene of the outrage. GIBSOS COUSTY. laveatlgallon Into the Recent Dl. ' iirbiacca-Usasral Campbell la. talaed at a Fee or 830,000 Twa Hide to the Story. Special to the Union and American. Jackson, Tenn., September 8. Judge Cartbel reached this place yesterday and opened and immediately adjourned the Circuit Court, in order to return to Trenton and protract the session of his court there sufficiently longer to allow the Grand Jury time and opportunity to follow up their investigations into the recent disturbances in Gibson county, leading to the killing of the negroes who were taken from the Trenton jail. A rumor, evidently well founded, and discussed on the street here, is to the effect that General Alex W. Campbell, of this place, one of the most prominent lawyers in Tennessee, has been retained at a fee of thirty thousand dollars to de fend certain parties in the suspected district, in the event they are arrested. General Campbell has been heard to re mark that there are two sides to the questiop, and that when the facts are known, the husbands, fathers and broth ers throaghout the country. North and South, whose blood would curdle at the thought of their wives, daughters and sisters being held in the coerced embrace o( these black lustful brutes, will regret the sheet iron thunder they imagine the ocension has justified. Occasional. Literary Carlonltjr. A Hungarian exile, Dr. GaborNaphe gyi, residing at Washington, has just ex ecuted a very curious and beautiful piece of chirogrophy intended as a let ter of condolence to Mrs. Taylor, relict of the late President. The whole work was done with pen and ink, on a sheet of paper five feet long and seven broad. It contains eighteen poetical inscrip tions in as many different languages and a likeness of General lajlor, in which outlines of the face and whole person are formed of written portions of the biography and sentiments of the de ceased. His hair is composed of the words, so disposed as at a -little distance to appear quite natural: "In the battle held amidst tne sound ot cannon, tne drums and trumpets, the hurrahs of the siege, and the sighs of the wounded, my locks became whitened." The eyes, viz : My glance wai ever forward to the Father in heaven and for the Republic." I he nose is composed ol the lollow- ing wards: "I breathed the air of lib erty in any other air I could not exist." The mouth is composed irom his last words: "I have always endeavored to do my duty. I am not afraid to die." The neck: Wot proud, only in be ing a son of the Republic." The shoulders: With pleasure 1 have borne the great duties with which the nation has bo greatly honored me." The rest of the portrait is tilled np in a similar manner, ana surrounaea oy likenesses of Washington, Tell, Freder ick Barbarossa. Alexander the Great, Draco and others. The whole is signed by the President and members of both Houses of Congress, and is to be pre sented in the form of a memento Irom them to the widow of General Taylor. The Troable t'aptd Canard. There is a funny story told of a Bos ton man with more money than educa tion, who purchased many valuable works of art while in Lurope. Among others was a small statue of Cupid, which he insisted upon having in hie stateroom on the voyage home. During the passage he trequently exhibited it with what he considered a descriptive lec ture, in which, of course, the large sum he had paid for it was included. One day he had it on deck to show the maa at the wheel. There was considerable sea on and the vessel was laboring heav ily. Having shown hopid (as he called it) to the men, he turned to descend, but the ship Careened and he and Cupid went headlong down fhe cabin stairs. ' It so happened that one of the stewards was assisting an invalid lady on deck. Cupid struck her on the head and knocked her down, and the steward was crushed against the side of the ship by the pros trate Bostonian. The -steward jumped np and called the New Englander an "hawkward bass," whereupon the latter struck him, and a light ensued. The lady's husband now appeared and seeing his wife lying at the loot of the stairs, apparently dead, imagined the owner of Cupid had assaulted her, and he assisted the steward in frescoing various por tians of bis person. Finally explana tions were heard, and the conflict ceased. Cupid what remained of him was gathered up and put in a pail to be thrown overboard. The .steward was put in irons, and upon the arrival of the stealer in port the Bostonian bad the lady's husband arrested for assault. Cupid, indeed, sometimes plays-lad pranks with us all. If any carriage npsets or injures an other carriage in the streets of St. Pe tersburg, or any passenger is knocked down, the horses of theotfending vehicle are seited and confiscated to the use of the fire brigade.
