Business is picking up all over the city. Katie Putnam as the " Little Detec tive " at the theater U -night. Venus crossed the sun's disc yesterday in a most successful manner, The United States Court, Judge Bal lard presiding, is in session daily. The rotunda of the new courthouse has been turned into a barber-shop, The neatest, cheapest and best print tog is done at the Ledger steam job office. Mark Grayson goes to New Orleans as business manager for Leon Macarte'i " Globe Theater." If you want to sell Christmas goods advertise them in the Ledger a paper that everybody reads. The negro Odd Fellows paraded the streets yesterday and installed the officers elect last night, The Pythian parade, concert and hop, on Tuesday nex, will be one of the social events of the season. There were street cars in front of the theater last night, and the people of the suburbs were enabled to return home, Mr. Benjamin Cash, an old citizen of this county, is lying very ill at his resi dence near Forest Hill, and is not ex pected to recover. Ticket-holders in the Louisville lottery are anxiously awaiting those fortunes which they expect to draw on the 27th of February next. Places of amusement open this even ing: Memphis 1 neater, J enerson upera House (varieties) and Washington street Olympic Varieties. Though we hear of snows and the thermometer at zero in the far up couo try, here the air is balmy and the gar dens are full of flowers. In a dozen alleys adjoining hardware stores are immense piles of grindstones, and yet so moral is our city that not one of them has ever been stolen. The trial of the new fire steamer for the DeSoto street boys attracted hun dreds of people to the corner of Mail and Madison streets yesterday afternoon Yesterday Judge Walker, of the Sec ond Chancery Court.dissolved the Happy Hollow injunctions, so that now the city can go ahead and remove the remaining buildings. The Nashville street car company has reduced the fare to five cents, which the Nashville journals pronounce an equit able figure. Let our street car company follow suit. The Avalanche of this morning con tains a special from Nashville stating that it is doubtful whether the site selected for the Insane Asylum, near this city, will be adopted by the Governor, Yesterday afternoon an alarm of fire was given, caused by the leaking ot a barrel of coal oil and its ignition, in rear of the Adams block. The Adams street fire engine boys were on hand and the conflagration was stopped. The Ledger has dug up and devel oped most interesting subjects for the School Board to act upon. Let the Board now investigate and act on the charges made and ready to be proven If the Board does not do so, why the people will elect men who will. At the Recorder's Court to day W. B Williams, a ticket seller and telegraph operator at the Little Rock depot, was placed under $5000 bonds to appear this afternoon before Esquire Winters on the charge of the larceny of eight hundred dollars belonging to the company. At the matinee last Saturday there was a baby at the theater who gave vent to a storm of squeals and screams, but in few minutes the noise was subdued, and there came a sound as of strangling and a flurry suggestive of a baby choked and sat upon, and the musical noise ceased. The gentleman who writes us a com mnnication daily on various subjects will oblige ns by discontinuing the same, as editorial life is too short and too val uable to be used np in reading those effusions. We do not mind beingibored little, but when it becomes a matter of daily occurrence we must object to it. The Ahrens fire engine for the Do- Soto street boys passed a most satisfac tory test yesterday. Water was thrown from the nozzle in four minutes eleven seconds. A distance of 259 feet was attained, and afterward a distance of 221 feet was attained hy two streams through smaller noszles. Yesterday the Memphis City Fire and General Relief Insurance Company lected officers as follows: President, E. M. Apperson; Vice President, A. Vaccaro; Cashier, H. J. Lynn; Board of Directors, Thomas Fisher, J. T. Hills man, W. N. Wilkerson, M. Gavin, W. C. Rutland, W. 0. Harvey, Napoleon Hill. Our reporter found one man in the city yesterday who had waded through the President's message, and he was full of talk about our foreign relations, cur rency, domestic affairs, etc. He says the President closed bis mouth when he recommended opening the mouth of the Mississippi," which he regarded as para- oxical in the extreme. We acknowledge an invitation to at tend the anniversary of the Santa Klaus Klan, which celebration comes otf at Vicksburg on the 21st instant. The in- itation cards are elegantly gotten up nd embellished. Having accepted nine nvitations to devour as many Christmas turkeys on the above day we will be un- ble to participate in tLe destruction of the Vicksburg gobbler. An enterprising frenchman In New York, M. Geullouste, has settled the question as to thj best plan to amelior ate the couditiou of the poor this winter. He furnishes one piece of bread, one plate of Ngt-taUe soup, aid one plate of vesetables fur five ceuts. He calls his place founiKiu Kn.Momique, or economical kitchen. Here it a most useful idea for those who intend estab lishing soup houses for the poor during the winter season. Monseur and Madame Geullouste treat their guests as politely as though they had come in their own carriages. The members of the police and fire departments would like to have a little money wherewith to purchase a Christ mas turkey, but the city seems to be un able to pay them their wages. If they were bondholders they could attend the convention to be held in New York and make an arragement with the city to get their money with regularity. An exchange advises all husbands, when they cannot think of what their wives charged them to bring home in the evening, " to purchase hair pins, as they are always handy in a house." A good idea, out a better one is to pur chase a copy of the Ledoeb and present it to your wite, who will regard it as a literary and social luxury, which every lady of taste wants and will have. Personal. Captain D. B. Black, of Okolona, Mississippi, and Treasurer of the Vicks burg and Nashville railroad, is in the city. Tom Neal, of the Dyersburg Gazette, and Captain Sparks, of the Riplty News, are in town. Messrs. Wescott, Herman & Rainey, formerly of our city, have established themselves as a law firm in St. Louis. Mr. Law S. Mayre, formerly of this city, but now of Chattanooga and Sena tor elect from that district, is here on a vist. Dooly Varana newly. The Ledger readers will be pained to hear that Suparintendcnt Pickett is in the low depths of despair. He has not yet found out which of the teachers had the temerity to tell of his doon and his doolies, and such like pretty little pecu liarities. We understand that Pequod is gotug around with tears in his eyes try ing to get the teachers to sign a card denying those dons, duoties, etc. Of course sympathetic school-marms won't have the heart to refuse. Amnaeiuienta. Memtuis Theater. Katie Putnam appeared before a very appreciative audience last night.-' She presented her effective impersonations in " Little Nell" and the "Marchioness" of Old Curiosity Shop. Her rendition of the very charming roles was dramatic aud pleasing, and the audience testified their appreciation by continuous rounds of applause at the close of each act. The dramatic company rendered fair support in the minor roles. To night Miss Put nam will appear in the Female Detec tive, in six different roles, each intro ducing new songs and dances. The per formance will conclude with a laughable farce, Handy Andy. To-morrow even ing that charmipg drama, the Pearl of Savoy, will be the attraction. J efferkov Opera House.
