The pumio can ruly npen htm for iu prompt and reinlar d- JlTery, SHALL WK TAX OUE BAILEOADSi This question, which we asked some time ago, bus elicited a more ready an wer than we expected, and we are espe cially gratified at the prompt and decided tone of the Union and American, which copied onr article on that subject and made the following remarks on the gene ral subject of taxation: Nearly all our 8ta ' exchanges that have touched the subject, give-an aflirm olive answer. The Memphis Lkdokr h snnmalv of Pullman's pal aces paying o taxes, though each of them is worm as mucu u v;i7 farm, and earns, in the course of a year, much more ready money. This is an oversight almost unpardonable,, and affords a striking illustration of a de fect in our general assessment system. We understand that the State officials have called the attention of the county authorities 'o this matter, as well as rail roads already liable to taxation, but without pffect. Tbe trouble is that the State officials have no means for correct ing errors or omissions in the county assessments, however glaring they may be. Tbe returns tnnst be accepted as they come up from the counties. In his recent pamphlet on taxation and assessment, Mr. T. Williamson, member of the last Legislature from Shelby, thus alludes to this defect: ' No State in the Union stands more in need of a good and efficient revenue and assessment law than Tennessee. All TanneuseB can do is to await tbe yearly assessment, accept of the valuation re turned by the assessors, and determine the rate of taxation. She is powerless to raiee, or in anywise control values Half tbe property in the 8tate may be ommitted from the books, or may be, as it is, entered at halt values. The State officers and officials are powerless to remedy it. One county may assess at full values, another county may assess at three-fonrtb values, another at half, and still another at a quarter values; the State officers and officials can do nothing to produce-equality or justice. ABOUT IHJtraCTIOHS. Some of our exchanges are discussing the want of a more efficient mortgage law fer real estate. An act was passed two years ago to cover the case, and it reads well enough, but somehow people do not take advantage of iU provisions. One great reason why the law is practi cally a dead letter is the facility with which injunctions can be obtained. Tbe Chancery Courts have almost unlimited power, and often grant iujunc tions upon petitions based upon the moBt frivolous grounds. The delays of the law are proverbial, and nowhere more frequently illn9trated than in the Chancery Courts. As yet there is no confidence among the people that this law will be enforced. The man who loans money on real estate has a horror of injunctions, and will not run the riak of getting into chancery, if he knows himself. We cannot suggest any special remed. Missouri has a law which might cover the case. When an injunction fails to hold good and the petitioner cannot make out the state of facts alleged in his prayer to the court he becomes liable for 25 per cent, damages on the amount involved. This makes people rather cautious about what they set forth in document addressed to the court, and real estate is a good and convenient collateral about St. Louis. Perhaps' the next Legislature can im prove the present law and somewhat modify tbe injunction business so as to make real estate more available in money tranfactions. That was a sad tale, but nothing bet ter could be expected of a big tin ful c;.ty like St. Louis. Zachariah Tay lor, jr , is the came of the heartless man who destroyed the peace of a once happy family named Johnsoa. Tbe innocent victim was, and is still, though in a lesser degree, ablack-aod-tan purp, from which he severed the caudal appendage, near the base of the spinal column. Mary Ann Johnson, the head of the family, what is left of it, se-ks redress in tbe courts. She thinks she could assaage her bleeding heart with one hundred dollars and costs. Able counsel has been employed on both tides, and this tale wiil not be continued " in our next Tds Memphis Presbyterian is to be consolidated alter this week with the Old School Presbyterian, of St. Louis, and issued simultaneously every Thurs day in both cities. Tbe consolidated paper will be issued in quarto form and enlarged in size. Rev. B. P. Farris, D D , of St. Louis; Rev. A. Shotwell and Rev. A. H. Kerr. D.D., of this city, will continue as editors. The prospects of the paper are very promising. Il is rumored that Judge Porter, Gov ernor elect, has tendered Mr. Wm. R. Eamby, of Jackson, the position of Adjutant-General and Private Becretary. Mr. Ilamby is not only a snoet worthy gentleman, but formerly lived at Taris, Tennessee. Every man in Paris, who will accept it, lias an office, and it now becomes necessary to go outside. It is announced by telegraph that Eon. L. H. Stepheos, of Georgia, is in fi't health and weighs eighty pounds. Vaat a whopper! Hon-. Iloi-ms Cummins,' of Tipton; Lewis Bond, of Haywood, and Lee Head, of Wilson, are preminently epoken of as candidates for the Speakership of the House of Representatives in the next Legislature. Cummins and Head are two of the four members who have been reelected. Colonel Jacob Fbolioh, editor of the White county Record, one of the test weeklies in Arkansas, is assistant clerk of the Senate at Little Rock. We co gratulate him on his promotion and the Senate for its judgment in making sucb n excellent selection. Tas debt of New York city is only about $115,000,000, and yet some of the big property owners are kicking against the taxes required to pay the interest on the debt. The rate of taxation is $2 80 on the one hundred dollars worth of property.j J In Paraguay the girls are not allowed to chew tobacco until they are thirteen years old. This shows how little woman is respected in lands less favored tnan our own. Who would tmnk oi raising a family of daughters in Paraguay? Now that the bovs in blue have gone back to Kentucky, after rolling up such fine Democratic majority, will it be safe for a man of Barbour Lewis pro nounced Republican opinions to be out late o' nights, or how? Carpet baggsrt has well nigh ruined the State of Mississippi. A plantation in Washington county assessed at a valuation of $16,500 and is taxed $1946 39. This is but one remove from confiscation. Beeches preached one of his heavy sermons on the " Fall of Man " the other day, but did not tell all he knew about it by a long sight The full name of V. V. Smith, of Ar kansas, is Voloey Voltaire Smith so named by his father, who was a violent infidel. The Jackson Courier-Herald com mends Mr. P. C. McCowat, of Jackson, as a proper man for Comptroller. Charley Ross and Five Cent Smith, brevet Governor of Arkansas, are both still missing. An Indignant Iuejolrer, To the Editor of the Led ter. We learn that an effort it being made to induce the "teachers of the city schools" to subscribe to a Jund for pay in i; the Appeal for its work in behalf of the continuance of these schools. Can it be that so immense a paper, daily boasting of its large circulation, liberal support, liberal views, would permit sucb a thing as an assessment on tbe salaries of teachers for having advocated public education? Is it not as much the business of the Appeal and all honest journals, to work for the public good, as it is of these teachers? Judging from the fact of their not having received enongh of their salary this fa 1 to defray daily expenses, they would be necessita ted to extra work out of school to pay this new tax to the Appeal. Would it not be better to suspend publie instruction during the present financial troubles and let each teacher keep his or her own school, and receive pay from their pupils? The teachers would certainly not be losers in this case. Inquirer. We give place to tbe above without in any manner indorsing it or intending a reflection upon our cotemporary. If sucb an assessment is contemplated we feel sure the AppeU knows nothing of it, and would reject a fund collected from our hard working and poorly paid teachers. The Appeal has done good ser vice in the cause of popular education, and we hope will continue until thebattle is won. In our support of the city school system we have in no way com mitted ourselves to its internal man agement, simply because we have not investigated tbe facts. It may be that the School Board is liable to censure for some things that Mr. Pickett's salary is a little too high, that some of the prin cipals hold sinecure positions, with too little work, while the teachers have too much work. It may be that one super intendent would be sufficient for the city and county. All these things are possi ble for aught wa know to the contrary. But granted, and still we see no reason for breaking down the system. Tbe offi cial acta of all connected with the city schools arj legitimate subjects of discus sion by and through the press. Break ing down the schools is altogether an other matter, and there we join istue with the opponeuts of liberal and uni versal education. The London World has taken to teach ing Queen Victoria good manners. Its first lesson touches the proprieties with regard to the visit to England of the Empress of Russia, and is ss follows: " Supposing you were an elderly lady and your son bad married the only daughter of tbe richest, grandest and most important of your teighbors, by whom every possible attention bad been showu to you and yours; and supposing on the occasion of your daughter in-law's confinement her mother came from a lor distance to ttav with her in her London house, don't you think it would be merely decent and polite we will lay nothing of politic behavior on your part to come up from tbe far distant place, where you persist in buryiog your self, to tbe great contusion of tbe busi ness which it is your duty to discharge and show tome personal civility to your guest?' When a man milks a cow he should not attempt to smoke a cigar or an old stinking pipe at tbe same time. A young man in the country tried t, and got aloog until he lowered his head and touched the cow't flank with the lighted end of his cigar. Tbe next instant him self and cigar were dreadfully put out The cow introduced about two tons cf weight into one of her hindlegs, and then passed it ander the milker's left jtw, and thus served him right.

The Pacific Mail Steamship Company has increased its passenger rate to San Francisco twenty dollars. Edward Redney was arrested on a tel gram from New Orleans, charging him with defrauding Mrs. Van O. Stern of bonds and cash amounting to $55,000. Mrs. Van O. Stern arrived yesterday with a requisition from Governor Kel logg, demanding that Redney be deliv ered to the lady, and he departed in her custody.

A telegram from Quebec, received a few nights ago, mentioned the arreU aboard the Prussian of a defaulter from France. The antecedents of the pris oner are thus recounted by the fans correspondent of the London Daily Tel etrrnnh. under date of November 2: We have just received word of one of iOf romantic roDoenes mai turn up from time to time in every country. A cerlBin Tefchemncher, German by birth, has long eirjojed the entire confidence of a great Anz'o French firm, Messrs. Poifset, af Bradford and Paris. Though but twenty-eight years oIJ, and boyish appearance, '1 t-schemacher occupied the position of chief cashier, and was even trusted with authority to sign for the firm. Just before the war iu a public place, he made the acquaintance of Marguerite Chauvin, a young person of some attractions, and ot superior educa tion. Led lor ber sake into large ex penses, he began to gamble on the lurl. with such lurk as to win nearly X4H00 in a very short time. Thereupon be bought two ponies, a banket carnage and other koick nacks of tbe sort and subject of gossip. Going out early in clothes of the latest fashion, he pasted the day at his desk in a coat almost too ancient for respectability, dined for a franc and a half and returned home late fashionably clad as be had set out. His bachelor chamber, modost beyond what his position authorized, was known to all in the office at 81 Bolevard Magenta. But fortune changed. Cardsand horses turned againsl the cashier. He began to fulsify bis book's. But for 3 years the double life was led without discovery, though the servants of Baron Alphonse are won derfully suspioious after the fact. A fortnight since came the warning of a catastrophe inevitable, though so long deferred. M. Poisset arrived from Brad ford, and proposed to go over the books. Teschemacher saw his game was up, opened tbe safe, took out 12,000 in notes, and caught the night mail to Lon don. Having taken care to bulance the books, he still left no suspicion behind, until his non-appearance caused alarm. Before the telegraph overtook him he bad taken ship for Quebec on board the Prussian. His companion even, was too late to catch him, having delayed too long over ber trunks. She came back to Peris, and was arrested with 22.000 francs upon her. There are policemen lookiug out for Teschemacher at Quebec, but one cannot easily think that a crimi nal sc bold and so experienced has over looked the use of the Atlantic telegraph. Beecher's latest: " There are words in the Bible that are only seed forms. God saw that bis work was good in making Adam. He was perfect. Was he per fect? How much could that be? A man with no childhood, no youth, no ed ucation, no life. Why, he never said a word worth recording. He never did anything worthy of note except to mind his wife and get kicked out of ParadUe. Sensation and laughter. What kind of men were Isaac aud Jacob and all the old patriarchs compared with tbe manhood we now have? Applause Jacob won't bear investigation. Bis marck weren't a circumstance to him." On the Pacific slope tbe red man has appeared as a stock speculator. A tall and stalely Piute walked into a banking office in Austin, Nevada, the other day, aud approaching the desk on which the report of the San Francisco Stock Board is kept, asked the clerk, "How is it this morning?" "Down," was the reply. "'Down again I," exclaimed the savage, " heap dam I " The Butter Manufacturing Company, of Valley Falls, N. Y., make their op eratives go cp and down the fire escape once a week. This practice should be come more common in high factories, where hundreds of employes are shut up, tier over tiers, in immense buildings. Wakefulness Eyes all the time com ing unbuttoned. Ainaeuients. Wagner's Minstrels Last night the Cal Wagner troupe appeared before a crowded house at the theater. The au dience was delighted with the vocalism and instrumental music by tbe troupe. The songs, dances and specialty business were excellent and were thoroughly en joyed by the audience. The troupe will appear at a matinee this afternoon and at a performance to night. Husiptt Dumptt. Fox's great pan tomime Humpty Dumpty troupe will commence an engagement at the Green law Opera House next Monday evening.

Among the leading stars who will appear may be mentioned George L. Fox as "Clown" aud C. K. Fox as " Pantaloon," C. W. Ravel as "Harlequin" and Louise Boshell as "Columbine." As a comic trick pantomime Humpty Dumpty stands unrivaled on the stage. Majiltons. Next Monday evening those very clever people, known as the Majiltons, will appear at the theater and give one of their amusing and attractive performances, which will be repeated during tbe week. The piece to be presen ted is "Ding Dong," a fantastic fable, full of good thing, fair music and wonder ful transformations, which will be render ed most effective by the costuming of the troupe. De Cast ho Troupe Professor De Castro, the great illusionist, gave a most pleasing entertainment last evening at tbe Greealaw Opera House. The tricks performed by the Professor, tbe charac ter tongs of Jeppe and Fannie, the India box trick, the aerial suspension and other attractions were well received by the audienee. At the matinee to day Profes sor DeCastro will distribute a number of valuable presents among the audience, and will also give an exhibition to-night. JxrrERkON Opera House.
