The police court docket failed to fur nish a respectable item of news this morning. The street repairing force is patching up the Nicolson on Adams street, east of Second. Lots of honeymoonBbine will be en joyed in Memphis during the present and next month. Next Monday we will have Humpty Dumpty at the Greenlaw and the Majil- to the theater.

The Ledger steam job printing office is the place to get the best work done at the lowest price. Cards, letter heads, etc , gotton up in the neatest style. Tbe Avalancbian informs the world this morning that hot steam waB turned on in tbe registers of tbe new court house yesterday." Who ever heard of cold steam? The river has been getting so low at this point that fears were entertained that a bg boat would not long be able to swing corners in the stream, but the present weather is indicative of a rise. Tbe public school question is beiog written to death. A little work would do more good toward sustaining the public schools than tbe immense volume of rhetoric that is being expended at pres ent. The Supreme Conrt of tbe State bas aljonrned at Knoxville. The lawyers' ux case and the railroad freight case wnre held under advisement. The Court will meet at Nahville on the second Monday in December. Memphis has the reputation among theatrical people of furnishing tbe noisi -at and most enthusiastic gallery audi ence of any city in the land. When the gullery critics howl for an encore it generally bas to come. The citizens of Chelsea, Eupertstown and Fort Pickering have organized pat rols to protect themselves and property from burglars and incendiaries. Tbe police force is not sufficiently Btrong in numbers for this purpose. When will tho Memphis boys ceaie whistling the Mulligan Guards march? The late visit of Baker and Farron to our city put money in their pockets, but started over again all the whistling mu sicians on that Mulligan business. It ia understood that Mayor Loagne will veto the ordinance adding six men to the poline police for the better pro tection of property in the city. The force at present is tbe smallest in the Union, when the territory to be patrolled is taken into consideration. Persons having no especial business in our editorial rooms will call during busi ness hours as often as their health will permit, or send a doctor's certificate in c me of absence. Bill collectors will call at three p.m.; the editors leave their sinclums at two and a half p.m. daily The station-house prisoners complain that they do not get a sufficient amount of food, and that whion they rpceiye is of bad quality. The Mayor has been investigating the matter, and if the com plaints are well founded it is to be hoptd that he will order a better bill of fare for he city boarders. Sending that delegation to New York in ordor to bold a convention with the city bondboi'jing creditors will cost the city two thousand dollars, end it will also advertise to the world through tbe New York press the bad condition of the city finances. All of which will probaN.V help cil7 credit bolh at home and abroad. A spiritualistic medium, Mrs. Hollis, is now in the city; so we may expect manifestations ere long. The spirits should be interviewed on the school question, the election of a Uuited States Senator from Tennessee and the ap proaching January municipal elections, so that the spirits can be made useful as well as ornamental. Tice clerk of the steamer Frank For est presented a splendid American gray eagle to the Leduer iffice to-day. Tba noble bird mea.nrtd six teet from tip to tip, and weighed about twenty pounds It was (hot jesterday by Mr. J. H. Wil liams, of Borum's Landing, Ark. Mr. Williams had been trying for weeks to kiil this king of tbe air, and yesterday succeeded in bazging the noble game a feat which but few men have been able to accomplish. That company of United States troops which has been camped at Alexander Park since before tbe November election, le t yesterday for Kentucky. No more w 11 ihe snbnrban residents in Sooth Memphis hear tbe dram, bog'e and fife frcm early morn till dewy eve. They icals in order to aid and assist in elect ing the Barbour Lewis crowd to office, but tbe people vetoed that resolution and invited the Lewia people to stay at home and work for a living in this Democratic land of ours. If they don't want to work they can adorn the chain gang. A newspaper should never indulge in the pleasure of blowing its own horn, as the complimentary serenade should come from other quarters; but one of our morning cotemporaries takes profound pleasure in self laudation, and in its enthusiasm over itself takes the credit for agitating almost every movement, and claims to be indorsed by all people. Newspaper life bas its sorrows and shad ows, but we are nerved np to a hope of a brighter future as a journalist when we see our more experienced and more ancient fellow journalists gushing like boys let loose from school over things that occur so often in tbe ordinary life of every newspaper. Of course ours is a "great journal," but let us not herald such a fact to the world daily, or else it may be suspected that we fear the world is forgetting the fact. Matrimonial. Last night a fashionable wedding came off at the residence of Thomas H. Allea, Esq., on Second street, near Union. Tke contracting parties were the daughter of the host. Miss Mary Lewis Allen and Mr. John C. Latham, of New York city. Tbe marriage was witnessed by a large circle of friends, representing the elite of Memphis. Tbe parlors were elegantly decorated with floral arches, wreaths and flowers, arranged in a most charm ing manner and with exquisite taste by Mr. E. Craig, sr., who has charge of the floral department of the house of R. G. Craig & Co., whose nursery is renowned for its collection of rare plants and flowers. The entire residence of the bride was beautifully decorated with elegant fes toons of evergreens and (lowers. In one corner of tbe main parlor was erected a floral arch, under which tbe bride and bridegroom took position, while Rev. Mr. Stewart, of St. Lazarus Episcopal Cburcb, performed the beauti fal service which binds man and wife. From the center of the floral arch hung a, marriage bell of the most charming floral construction, all of which was tbe evidence of the skill of Mr. Craig, the accomplished florist. The attendants on the bride and groom were: Miss Nellie Smith and Mr. Rich ard H Allen, jr.; Miss Blanche MeGehee and Mr. Charles M. Latham, Miss Mug gie Davis and Captain L Buckner; Mies Ellen F. Nooe and Mr. W. F. McLana ban, Miss Alberta Chupman and Qeneral O. W. Gordon, MibS Jennie Poslon and Mr. R B Edmondson. When the wedding bells had ceased ringing the guetti indulged in a dance to tbe soft mubic of the orchestra, and at a later hour an elegant repast was spread for the company assembled. To the bride and groom the Lsdoeii wishes all the happiness which this world is capable of producing. Tho happy couple will spend the honeymoon in New York city. roilon Brokerage. The well known hous ol O. B. Parker 1 Co., No. 308 Shelby street (up stairs), is one of the most reliable business eslab liabments in the city. The senior mem ber of the firm, Colonel O. B. Parker, has long been engaged in the cotton business, in fact, he is one ol our oldest cotton men, and has bad years of experience in handling, selling and buying the fleecy staple. Parker & Co. pay special at tention to local business, and all such entrusted to their care will meet with that prompt attention, which will be most benefical to all correspondents. IHssqneraderi1, Attention t The best Baltimore oysters are kept by Madam Vincent, at the Crystal Palace on Main, opposite Odd Fellows' Hull. Those attending the masquerade ball will find Madam Vincent's I hii place to get oysters, stowed, fried, roast, etc. and ample preparations will be made for the reception 'of masquerader'a who desire to partake of the luscious bivalves during the progress of the ball.
