The Appeal is taking care of the school question so ably that we have not felt it necessary to more than express our cordial concurrence with the substantia! 'point of onr cotemporary'f position. We stand ready, howerer, to yield the public schools a hearty support. That some exceptions might be foond with the system or its management is not surpris ing, since nothing human is perfect. But the main features of the law are sim ilar to th" of older States and cities where the system has been perfected by the best minds of the country after many years' experience and immense outlay and labor. Our schools are just beginning to be appreciated by the masses und to compare favorably with the schools of Louisville, Cincinnati and other large cities. For a long time Mem phis could not boast of a creditable look ing publio building, except a jail which cost nearly a half million dollars. The public schools were of a low grade and positive discredit to the city. Then came a change in the public mind. It was naturally inferred that without more schools there would be use for ... it . V.n',M (ticm more jails ana less monej u with. So the present system came into existence, and should be the pride of the city. Memphis is becoming noted already (or public schools equal almost to any in the Union. Men ol moa erate means but of abundant energy, the very class we need most to bmld op the city, are attracted here to educate their families and invest their monoy. They know tbat tnch schools create re fined society, aud toon make any city a desirable place of permanent residence. The time has pasred when a common school education, as understood forty years ago, answers the practical pur poses of life. In the days of our pio neer fatheraa rudimentary education bad to answer, but with the march of science and the opening of new fields for skilled labor and intellectual effort, as commu nities become more dense and com petition iu all the pursuits of life grows sharper, a higher order of education be comes as essential as a careful training for any mechanical profession or depart ment in business. This is an ra of daily newspapers, telegraphs and railroads, electricity and steam, of quick thought and wonderful enterprise, and if educa tion does not keep pace with the mate rial progress of the times, we will de generate as a people and erect a false standard, based npon money, power and external display. We must either improve or go backw&rda; become intelligent in proportion to increased wealth and lux ory, or retrogadc and become enervated. Yrt we regret to confess thai there is a large class of people in this Stat witk out reference to sect, religious faith or party, who oppose all schools sustained by a general cystem of taxation. We do not refer to religious zealots, if such there be, for tbey have conscientious reasons to offer, but to tax payers who nn(i enjoy all the benefits of govern tnent without bearing their pro rat of its burden. They object, they say, U euucatii.it the poor mau's child, white or black, yet would run the risk of contrib uting to build jails and defray the ex pense of criminal prosecutions. Such jnen are utterly selfish and indifferent to t'ne general good of society. Under a kiifcly ,,-v.rnmeot, where a favored class does all the thinking and ruling, it is well to keep the masses in ignoranee, because they can be more easily con trolled uuder the yoke, which from one generation to another grooves their necks. In this country it will not do. The people themselves are the sovereigns and select their public servants from time to time. Popular education is the palladium of a tree government, even as ignorance and superstition are a hedge about the rotten dynasties of despotism. A free people to remain stab must have free schools, and every center uf com merce and wealth should likewise be as Atheos of intelligence and higher edu- r.i;M The aggregation of wealth should be amended by increased facilities for popular improvement and mind keep pace will! matter. It really seems strange, if not iueredible, that it should become necessary in this enlightened age t argue the necessity of public schools. Those who wculd break down our city schools by taking advantage of a legal techni cality, perhaps deny tbat they oppose the general system of tie State. But this is the entering wedge. If the high schools can be abolished there will soon be a pretext for an attack on all publie schools. Once for all we desire it an- At 'stood that the Ltncia is the 4T0- catsj .of popular education, and as thor ough as practicable. We would have all tha risini generation, white and black. educated, beluing that this is tha way male. ood ana' om" citizens, to so ' ar the) permanency and purity of re n.Miraa institutions. ni to dispense the greaust benefits to tie Ionian race. Haeaikotow, the alleged burglar, is nndergoing a trial in Washington, and yet was invited to Fred Grant's recep- tion at the White Uouse, last Wednes day night, and attended along with the members of the Cabinet, Judges of the Supreme Court, the officers of the army and navy, and the diplomatic corps, and yet there are people who favor a third term. Th Jonesboro Echo echoes no more, Cord wood, ginseng, turnips, pumpkins and such like are no longer received by the conscientious editor. Spnrsro and Lvdln Thompson London oor. Cincinnati Commaroial , A rather unnsual correspondence was recently brought about by a message sent to Lydia Thompson from the Lord Chamberlin, saying tbat the religious leetings of some people were offended by allusions ti Mr. Spurgeon in "Blue Beard, which is just now attracting great crowds to the Charing Cross X bea ter. Lydia wrote to the famous surrey preacher as follows: Kev sis. in the extra vaeanza due Beard." now playing at this theater, the hero (enacted by myself) eives a card bearing your name to "Blue Beard," adding: "Wealwavs like to look npon the Surrey sido " This announcement is invariably received with great ap plause; but, iu deference to your poai- lon, 1 write to ask it you nave any oo ection to the use of your camp. If so, I will withdraw it it once. Yours, respectfully, I.vMA Thompson. The reply was as follows: Madam Mr. Spurgeon duly received your courteous note, and would nave replied, but has beea puttering trom an attack of illness. Mr. Spurtreon desires me to say that you, having bad the po liteness to inform him of the little inci dent, be is quite content to leave the matter in your hands. Very respectfully, Charlks Bbadshaw. Tbat Mr. Sporeeon did not improve the occasion to lecture Lydia on the sin fulness of the theater in general, and of her acting the part of a hero, instead of a heroine, in particular, will probably induce his American brethren to regret more than ever tbat he did not visit them when solicited to do so, when she might have returned to us with more unctious ideas. I need not say that on the night after this "little incident " the Charing Croat Theater was the RCcoe of the first demonstration favorable to a London preacher ever kuown to the boards. A flarrlble Execution. The gods who commanded Tazxk Hide cbica to murder Mr. Haber, the German consul at Hakodate, Japan, abandoned their vengeful emissary to an awtul fate. Kneeling in front of the judge who had tried him and iu presence of the foreign consuls, he was sentenced to death. It was agreed that the execution should be so far private that there should be no witnesses but three consuls and curtain officers of justice. Tazak was curried to the place of execution in a kago, guarded by a dozen policerueu. The scene of death was a small court withU the prison walls, surrounded by a high wall. At one side sat the witnesses. In the middle was a trench six inches djep and three fet in length. Brought in blindiolded, te prisoner was made to kneel upin a mat by the side of the trench. His cords were loosened his neck bared, the hair arranged so an not to impede the murderous sword, and one knee uncovered. He was pale but seemingly unconcerned. The swords of the executioners, soon to drip blood, were dripping water. One headumau advanced and, aiming at the prisoner's neck, brought down a bungling blow upon his shoulders. Suffering horribly from this mischance, the body of the culprit fell forward with the head in the trench. A second and equally unsuc cessful blow was strnck, whereupon the assistant executioner stepped forward and aimed to sever the head trom the trunk. All efforts at decapitation hav ing (ailed, one of the horrible bu'.cbrs seized the head by the hair and began sawing off iba bead -with no more com punclion than it be were manipulating a block of wood. This proceeding was hastily put an end to by the chief official in attendance, and the fanatical mur derer being by this time hacked out of existence, water was thrown in his face, and the bead, yet adhering to the shoul ders by some unsevered ligaments, was shown to the witnesses as evidence that the oonspl was avenged, the law vin dicated. And precious work the min ions of the law made of it. A Flashy rub Hlory. A Saratoga resident, who has lately returned from "uis native Vermont hiiip, tel's the following "fish" story: Two boys were lately fishing on Lake Pun more. They were uged twelve and ten years respectively. After patient angling fo awhile, tbe elder hoiked a lar,?e i,n eret. tie handled it with the true skill of a Waltoniau fill he tbot:ebt the opportune moment had arrived. when he hauled taut with the intent of landing tbe fiisb iu the boat. Jact as jn n.S imagination s eve oe naa secured tbe prize, the fish gave a whisk and broke loop. As be was diving 'or 'home in the vasty deep," the little brother, who bad sat an interested and eieiud spec tator, reached forward to seize the slip pery customer, and, in so d.-.ing, fell overboard aud sank to the bottom. Some men who were wit'iaases of tse event ahooted to the broiher to catch the little fellow as he came to the surface, lie watched, and, as soon as he saw him, grabbed htm by the hair and held him Jill the Ken had rowed out trom the shore to the;r rl:flf. Judge of their sur prise when they found hat pickerel clasped in bis arms, where he held the fish with a death grip, having seized it as be fell into tbe Irke. The little lad was taken to the Lake Dun more House, and was soon recovered from tbe effects of bis involuntary batb. The pickerel weicbed ten pon4s, and was the largest one ever taken tro the lake Our informant says he bus the sicry from one who ate a piece of tbe fisn, and that it can be relied on. It not true, it is the largest story be :s capable of telling off band. If the man who related the yarn had not actually swallowed soma uf the fish we would not feel war ranted in aking our readers to swallow tba tale, but, of course, if the man ate some of the pickerel, that settles it. Boston Globe: At a recant redding, ' according to a repart, " the jellies noon the bridal supper tables were pure amber masses of quivering truslucencc, catch ing tbe wine colored prums of perfumed light, and holding them it tremulous mirrors of rosy beauty." That's enough to send a mac off to propose to the ue- .1 .L-l . tieet woman ne snows, on me oare cbance of having sach things as that lor topper.

MUTINY AT THE JAIL. Jailer Jarkma Ha la sha Bar. srliar la urdcr so Quell mnaiai rtcilon. Last night the prisoners confined in the county jail started a mutiny under the lead of Ed McCoy, who is imprisoned on the charge of burglarizing and plun dering a jewelrv store at Brownsville, The following official report of the jaile and assistant gives all the particulars of the affair: Novixbei 20, 1871. To C. L. Anderson, Sheriff: For tbe last three nights there has been among the prisoners unusually loud talkinsr and noise generally, and the watch bas found said noise difficult to subdue. If he ranoed or called fo order be was answered by defiant shouts from the prisoners. Desiring to ascer tain who the disorderly prisoners were, I remained on duty later Inst night than usual. About nine o'clock an unusual noise was set up by the prisoners by shouting, stamping and striking against the cells, etc. I slipped on a pair of rubbers to drown the noise of mv own steps, and went int the cor ridor between the cells and walked down as far as cell No. 20, occupied by one Ed McCoy. Said McCoy is a desperate character. When be discovered me in front of his cell he said, " What in the hell do vou sneak down on me in this manner for?" I made answer. "In or der to find who it is that makes so much noise." He replied, " Now that yon have found out, what in the hell are you going to do about it?" My reply was that I would remember this tomorrow He said, " Be damned sure you remem brit no longer." I told him if be con tinned the- noise I would give him a cold hath fa term we nse for the dungeon) His reply was: " You G d d n son of a , you will give me nothing," at the same time stepping back and placing bis hand under tbe mattress, as though to draw a weaDon. I told him I would have him out of his cell before I was thronirh with him. He replied: "Try me, you son of a ; try me. I dare you to make tne attempt to take me out of here " I then called to Crptain Jack son. who had retired to his room. We approached the cell together. I U'i locked the ceil door, and ordered the prisoner out. He inquired, " What doyou want?" Captain Jackson told him he had to go in the dungeon; he would put him in there. He replied: "I'll be G d d d if you do, you d d old grizzly headed son of a ," at the same time drawing a laree Docket knife (four-inch blade) from his coat pocket (having put on his coat and hat since my first visit to his cell), and made an attempt to dash by us. Seeing bis effort, I closed tbe cell in his face, forcing him back thronghtbe door. At this time Cap'ain Jackson struck at him with his cane, when Ale Coy made a lunge with his knife right and left at Captain Jackson and myself. He missed Captain Jacksan, but gave me a alight cut on the right arm. At this Captain Jackson drew his pistol and told him to give up the knife and come out of the cell, or be would sboot Dim. tie said, ftnoot, or attempt to shoot. and I will kill you, you G d d d, miserable old grizzly beaded son of a ." He continued his threats and abusive lan guage c d til Captain Jackson fired bis pistol, wounding the prisoner in the arm His face and body were fully exposed to Cantain Jackson, and he could have killed him easily, but only wanted to in dict as slight a punishment as he could which would be sufficient to quell the turbulent spirit of tbe prisoner, bven after he was wounded ha continued bis violeot threats and abusive language, displaying his knife in a threatening manner. Upon his wound becoming painful he submitted, when we called in the phyi cian. had his wound dressed, and did what we could for the comlort of the prisoner. Jso. F. Dawsos, The above statement is correct. D. F. Jacksox, Jailer. Aranarnrenta. Memphis Theater,. Last night the Cal Wagner minstrel troupe made their appearance before a large audience and gave a most pleasiug entertainment, con sisting of songs, dances, character acts, specialty performances and negro com ipalities which created the liveliest en thusiasm among those present. Cal Wagner is a trump card, as is also that most amusing minstrel Sam Price, who creates laughter whenever he appears on the stage. It is impossible to describe tbe Wagner troupe. Each member of it is an artist in bis line, and they form a combination of taleqt not excelled by any minstrel troupe now appearing en tbe American stage. There will be a complete change of programme to night. Cal Wagner will give a matinee to mor row, and a closing performance to-morrow night.

The Little Rock Gazette', of Wednes day, gives the following particulars of the "run off" on the Little Rock road: Particulars of another disaster on the Memphis and Little Rock railroad reached this city yesterday evening on tbe arrival of the train from Memphis, which was several hours delayed. Oo yesterday morning, three miles from Brinkley, this last accident occurred. The train was a freight, aad was in charge of Conductor Mayhew, a well known and efficient railroad man. At the time of tbe wreck it was running about fifteen miles per hour. The caboose and a baggage car, both in the rear, were thrown from the track by the decayed ties snapping in the center, and allowing tbe rails to spread. Tbe caboosa in which were Conductor Mayhew, and a gentleman named Handle, formerly iu the employ of the company, but who bad resigned and was on his way to Memphis to get his "time," turned completely over. The baggage-car was ditched. Mr. Mayhew received a dangerous cut in the fore head, and his scalp was rolled back on his head. He placed it in position, tied a handkerchief around the wound, and, with heroic devotion to duty, commenced the work of clearing off the debris. Mr. Handle was the most seriously injured. Uo suffers from a deep, painful gash on the right foot; his left arm was burned entire, it being held for some time against the stove. The deepest burn is at the elbow. Dr. P. W. Campbell, of Lonoke, came over with the injured men yester day, who, on arriving here, placed them in charge of Dr. Hancker, of Argenta. Mr. lUudle's wounds are very danger ous, but with good care he will recover.
