The river is rising sligatlyonceaain; in front of this city it is bank full. Major Freeman, Clerk of the Supreme Court of Wesi Tennessee, is in the city on a visit. It is announced that on Tuesday even ing next the Casino Club concert will be given in Court Square. Send in your advertisements in time for Monday's Ledger, the only paper published in the city on that day. Colonel John C. Lanier died this morn ing at his residence. He was one of our oldest and most respected citizens. Shin Skee, a Chinese peddler, was fined five dollars by the Recorder to-day for doing business without a license. A score of misdemeanor cases were disposed of by fine this morning. Noth ing of importance took place during the eession of court. I. M. Hill, who was appointed by the United States Court trustee of the Mem phis and Selma railroad, has delined to act in that capacity. The charming appearance of the set ting eun, as it sank into the golden west, was admired by a large crowd of people on the bluff laBt evening. Only one marriage among white people was reported at the County Court Clerk's office during the past week Owen Sweeney and Miss Elizabeth S. Stone. The west interior wall of the quad rangle or court, in the court house building, having commenced bulging out, workmen are engaged to-day in hog: chaining it. Sol Coleman ha9 received a new brand ef imported cigars, which he sells cheaper than any house in town, and the cigars are excellent. See his card in another column. The game law provides that it shall be unlawful to kill, capture or sell any bird from the 1st of March to the 1st of Sep tember in each year. This makes it an offense to sell mocking birds. A well-known attorney, in speaking of the Waddy Thompson case and straw bonds, gravely remarked: "Well, I've always found it the best plan to take things straight and not through a straw." Colonel J. A. Signaigo, now sojourn ing for his health at Windsor, Canada, has written to Secretary Camp, of the Industrial Exposition, releasing all pe cuniary claims that he had upon the Association, It is rumored that several Memphians off on European tours find themselves embarrassed by the failure of Duncan, Sherman & Co., which firm had posses sion of their funds and upon whom they drew for money. A social scandal, in which a medical man figured, was generally talked of last evening. The parties are said to have settled up the delicate imbroglio by a compromise of a pecuniary nature instead of by an appeal to deadly wea pons. A mulatto named Wm. Childress, a county convict, escaped from General Forrest's Big Creek plantation yester day. A number of convicts are at work on Big Creek, awaiting the erection of the workhouse buildings on President's Island. "Hop" Johnson, city editor of the Appeal, left for Cincinnati yesterday on board the tteamer James D. Parker. Ee goes up to take soundings of the rivers Mississippi and Ohio, and report all he knows about overflows and water generally. Some reformed inebriate announces to the drinking world that if any one will eat an orange every morning' half an hour before breakfast, he will soon lose all taste for liquor. Should this test be made in Memphis, an orange trade would flourish. A report reached the city last evening that on the Forrest plantation on Big Creek four negroes made a break for lib erty yesterday, and that two of tbern were shot dead by the guards. One escaped and the fourth was reoeptured. The result of the inquest has not as yet reached the city. The news which reached the city last evening as to the paralytic stroke re ceived by Andy Johnson caused no little speculation as to whom would be the prominent West Tennessee candidate for the office of Senator in the event that the attack of paralysis would prove fatal to Senator Johnson. The Vicksburg Herald says cotton may lack for gatherers and corn may go unharveeted, but there is a fair prospect that Mississippi will reap a fine crop of politics next fall. Between a crop and an election the African mind wabbles over the ragged edge of politics and lets the crop take care of itself. The sacking and wrecking of a water melon wagon by a lot of newsboys on Madison street, near Main, yesterday afternoon created a commotion on the street and gathered together a large crowd of spectators. The excitement was equal to that created on Wall street, New York, by the failure of Duncan, Sherman & Co. The Sodality Dramatic Association re peated the Specter Eridegroom and The Benecia Boy, two very good farces, be fore a largo and delighted audience last night at tb? St. Peter's Parrocbial svho-j!- honse, on Washirg'on street. The en tertainments by the association will be presented at intervals during the sum mer and fall months. The Judge, Clerk, Attornty General and deputy sheriffs of the Criminal Court are completely worn out respond, ing to questions from citizens as to the Waddy Thompson case and jury. News paper reporters have to shake their heads ecores of times during the day and tell the. little they know as to the prespettive result of the trial. A keg of beer is supposed to contain eight gallons; a mug of beer holds nearly a pint, which would give from sixty-four to sever.ty-four glasses ot beer to a keg In the leading saloons a beer keg is emp tied every ten minutes for several hours during the day, as just now thousands of mugs and glasses are constantly being thrown under myriads of noses. James A. Chastaine has been indicted in five cases, and his bail in four of them has been fixed by the Attorney General and the Judge of the Criminal Court at t000. The bail on the other indictment was not fixed at the time, but it will be fixed at probably $2000, which will make the entire bond to be given by Chastaine, in order to get out of durance vile, amount to $ 10,000. It is rumored on the streets that tbe Masonic Temple Association has to bor row money to pay the big salaries of sev eral of its officers, who have nothing to do, as all work upon the temple has ceased for the present for want of funds. This is a serious charge and needs some little explanation. People should not make money out of or speculate off of benevolent or charitable orders or insti tutions, Billiards have become a necessity with hundreds of Memphians, to whom the game is both a pleasure as well as healthy exercise. Sid Cook's Peabody Billiard Hall is the coolest place in the city, as he has arranged a lot of revolv ing fans that create a little hurricane in the hall, if necessary. This makes the game a summer pastime, a thing un known heretofore in Memphis. Go and see for yourself. Since the attention of the authorities was called to the dangerous condition of the Madi3on street bridge over the Charleston railroad track, seme one has fastened planks across each end of the bridge so as to prevent and obstruct travel. This has been done for several days, to the great annoyance and incon venience of citizens. Let the bridge be repaired at once, and let the obstruction to trade and travel be removed. The "prayer test" is being invoked in favor ot a cessation of rain in many of our churches. The planters residing on the lowlands of the Mississippi will heartily join in the prayer, but many of the planters residing on the hills above the reach of overflow have not a suffi cient amouut of rain as yet, and their prayer will be for a continuance of those fruitful showers that have already im proved their crops many thousands of dollars. Some unknown person sent an anony mous note to the Ledger yesterday, in which it was intimated that an attorney had been guilty of unprofessional con duct. Attorney General Wright and other parties received similar docu ments. The. writing was the same as that which appeared in those anony mous notes received by the Sheriff, Chief of Police and Attorney General, stating that an effort would be made to secure the escape of Chastaine from the county jail. As a general rule anonymous cor respondents are irresponsible and un worthy of notice; at least they are certainly unworthy of newspaper notice Every night the police bring into the station a number of necro women charged with drunkenness, disorderly conduct or lewd behavior. These people, instead of being confined in the station' house for weeks for non-payment of fines, should be sent to the county work house under charge of General Forrest, On Wednesday next the General Coun cil should make some arrangement to hire these prisoners out to work and save the city fifty cenis a day for each prisoner. It costs about four hundred dollars per month to maintain the dig nity of tbe chain gang a waste of money and a useless piece of extrava gance.

WHITE P.ITER. t'aplaln Stilt Harry's Kerr White Mlver Packet, lb Kuth. Captain Milt Harry starts out to-day with hia new White river packet. The Ituth is a staunch steamer, a good car rier and has unsurpassed passenger c. commodations. She is well suited for the trade. She has passenger accommo dations for fifty people and a carrying capacity of 1200 bales of cotton. Capt. Harry purchased the Ruth with a view of accommodating the people on White river during low water, and being de termined to keep np the excellent trade he has built up through hi3 indomitable energy and prompt attention to business has secured a sidewheel steamer to place in the Memphis and White river trade as soon as business opens out. The Ruth has been docked and put in thor ough repair under his supervision, and now ranks as a first-class packet. The cabins have been furnished with new carpets, tables and chairs, and has also been repainted, presenting a fine appear ance. Her state-rooms have also been furnished with new "bedding, while the pantry and culinary departments have been furnished with the finest new ware ever used on a steamer. Captain Harry has not only put his steamer in complete order and furnished her with all the modern improvements (or the accommodation and interest of the shipping and traveling public o White river, but has also selected and placed on his boat a set of officers who are experienced and trustworthy steam boatmen. The Ruth is well adapted for the trade and is fully cnpable to do the business. Captain Harry, appreciating the kindness shown him by tie good peo ple on White river and also there patron age, delayed his boat here in order to put her in complete order. The Ruth, under the guidance of her worthy and popular officers, will not only prove a financial success, but keep up tbe reputation of Captain Harry and his officers. When the seaion opens out Captain Milt will have a fine sidewheeler in the trade. He is determined, as always heretofore, to accommodate the people and do their business, though he be the lo3er thereby. The Ruth leaves the wharfboat this evening for all points on White river, carries the mail and pays strict attention to all way business. Captain Ed Postal, her chief purser, is a gentleman noted for integrity, fine business qualities and uniform kindness to all. Mr. Ed Crowell, his assistant, is not only a good account ant, but a gentleman who has made friends of all with whom he has been in any manner associated and has alwavs proved himself worthy of the respect and conhdence ot the business commu nity.

In the event that the jury in the Waddy Thompson casts fail to aree, the defendunt will be in a very unpleas ant position. Two of the five indict ments fouuii by the Grand Jury agniust the defendant charge horse stealing, which, being a cnpitul offense, is not a bailable one under the laws of Tennes see; consequently the disagreement of the jury will compel the defendant to remain in the county jail until the next term of court, when the second trial of the cases would take place. Yesterday it was rumored, apparently on good authority, that the jury stood nine for conviction and three for acquittal. This being the case, it is nt probable that the jury can agree upon a verdict, as these favoring acquittal will hardly compro mise by bringing in a verdict of guiity, and where so many jurors believe in the guilt of a prisoner, they are not apt to agree to a verdict of acquittal. The jury made no report in court yesterday, i i i i , . , nuving remained locaeo np in tneir rpom during the day, except when they marched down Main street in double files ou their way to meals. Numbers of people scanned their sphinx-like faces as they marched down the street, but the most profound physiognomist could see no other expression on those twelve faces save and except that which clearly indicated that they wanted din ner. As they marched back to tbe jury room their countenances indicated and beamed with satisfaction, showing that noue of them were suffering from indi gestion or other complaints.

Coi.Evan is getting very liberal. Protpeetaa. It is reported that an enterprise fs on foot to start another afternoon paper here about the 1st of September to fil a vacuum. There is a magnificent opening for an under taking for anybody that has 0,000 and is anxious to invest it. The experi ment has been made here occasionally without quite that capital, but when the right man tries it he will succeed. There is room here for four or five more news papers, and were that many at one time, but somehow the proprietors, as they grew rich, became careless about the honor, folded their little tents and re tired. One thousand dollars a week ia cash is about the amount required to run the Ledger, but fifteen hundred would answer as well. There's millions in it, and any one who desires to make a fortune in the business, as we havs done in the last ten years and invested in five twenties, ocean steamers, Chicago hotels and the like, can procure all necessary information how to do it at this office.

Mr. Pickett's Principles of Instruction and Course of Study, written for tho use of the city schools, having been exam ined, I state that I do not comprehend the meaning of rules for the guidance of teachers therein contained. Dr. Wm. Hewitt. I quote some of the rules, the mean ing of which the acute mind of Dr. Hew itt attempted to grasp: Rule for reading: Imitate proper con versation. To secure good articulation, practice three grades of utterance, in distinct, distinct and extra distinct. Practice the first enough, so that the pupils may see what is meant by it and perceive its evils. (Practice means fre quent repetitions; here, we see, to secure good articulation, pupils are ordered to practice a bad.) Practice the second mostly, but the third sufficiently to ena ble the pupil to comprehend the proper grade. Practice to some extent, also, three or more grades of motion, various grades of power and various keys. In addition to reviews in three grades of articulation, add three grades ot motion. Let the middle mot:on be tbe proper and prevailing movement, but practice others until the pupil has power to select at pleasure, ability to choose and to fol low choice. Continue reviews on the varieties of articulation and motion, and add several rates of pewer. Let the proper rate pr vail, (by all means the proper rate, or the thing might blow up, or run off the trsck) but prnofire other rates until the pupils may have pertect freedom. Who is not bewildered by all these graJes, and powers, and rates, and mo tions? Does Mr. Pickett fancy the pu pils are so many engines to be run on the track of knowledge? Or has he gotten hold of Keely's mana 1 of in structions intended for the engineers who are to run his wonderful Motor? Louk at it, people of Memphis! ThU senseless jurgon is the stuff Sup"riu tendent Pickett puts into the hands of teachers as rules by which they are tu teach children to read. The teachers who fail to laud such stuff are pro nounced insubordinate by Pii kett, and those members of the Board determined to sustain Pickett echo the cry and ejct the teachers. What common sense mind can see any sense in these rules? If the acute intel ligence of Dr. Hewett, the experience ol T. C. Anderson, of W. Z. Mitchell, of H C. Slaughter and others are puzzled and confounded by such rules, how would they coufuse and bewilder tbe young tenchei? Perhaps thp profound intellect of the School Board's President eun penetrata the mystery of Picki-tt's rules. Jf sn, let the Doctor tna!e ha.te to shed light on a benighted community. An anx ious and lent people, wandering in a wild wilderness ot motions, and j. owers, and grades, and rut-., hnih proper and improper, nnd keys of all varieties and sizes, shooting up stiff and stubbly like cypress knees in a swamp, cry to you, oh, Esculapius Mitchell I to he their Moses, to lend them forth to light aud the understanding of Superintendent Pickett's rules lor reading.
