WOEK OF THE FORTIETH GEHEEAL
The Tennessee legislature will
formally adjourn to-nigbt at mid
night. The object in passing euch
a resolution was pcrhap3 not so
inucli to have a night session as to
give the governor time to examine
bills passed Saturday and to-day.
The last legislature adjourned at
noon on the 25th of March, 1875.
Several important measures finally
passed that morning could not be
engrossed in time to be properly
scrutinized by the governor, and
were consequently lost What the
Fortieth general assembly has done
aud not done will bo better under
stood when th official acta come to
hand. Ill regard to the State debt
question a commission was sent to
New York to confer with the hold
ers of Tennessee bonds. A propo
sition, the result of this, was
laid before the general assembly,
but not in time to give the subject
proper attention before the day set
for adjournment. An extra session
of twenty days, as may be called
under a constitutional provision
when the subjects to be considered
are specified in the governsr's proc
lamation, may be called some time
during the year. A great many
bills wore rushed through and sign
ed within the last ten days. A ma
jority of these were probably of a
private or local character. The
quantity of work was no doubt
more than sufficient; the quality
can be better determined when it
goes into effect and is subjected to
judicial scrutiny. There was plenty
of good material in this legislature,
but nine-tenths of it was unac
quainted with the mode3 of
practical legislation and not any
too familiar with parliamentary and
statutory law. If the same men
could go back in a body in 1879
they would be much better quali
fied to seivo their constituents,
but of course not many of them
will get back next time. In the
first place not many will care to
go through a heated canvaas for
' the privilege of serving tho State
three months at four dollars a day;
and in the next place the flaws that
can be picked in their recordj and
the fair promises which inexperi
enced aspirants can make will" re
duce tho clamor of the people to
send them back. We hope to see
the time come when the legislature
of Tennesseo will only meet once
in four years, unless convened for
special purposes when necessary.

Atstis, Miss,, March JO, 1877,
To the Editor of tut Ledger. '
I write to call th attention of the cit
izens of Memphis to the condition of
Miss "Lula Wilkinson," (sow Mrs.
Deeriog aud a widow.) She and Miss
Mattie Stevenson nursed the yellow (ever
patients of your city through that fearful
soaurge, and were utter strangers to our
people. They did this, prompted alone
by the desire to alleviate, as far as was
in their power, the sufferings of their
fellow-beings. The latter gave np her
life in the noble caaae she had underta
ken, and the marble shaft in your silent
city of the dead will ever stanj as a fit
ting tribute of the gratitude of yonr peo
ple to her. This is well, but I think that
she who was her fellow-laborer, she who
also watched day and niht by the bed
side of suffering and death, and who
came near losing her own life by tbe
same disease that carried off her noble
companion, is also entitled to the kind
ness and assistance of the people of
Memphis. As I have said, she is a widow
and in a vary destitute condition. She
lost her husband about a year since, and
on yesterday her little baby.
I know that it is only neceosary to call
the attention of your citizens to th. facts
in tbe case, and I feel satisfied they will
do All that is right and fitting in the mat
ter. This is written without the knowl
edge of Mrs. Deering, whom I do cot
know even by sight, but the facts as
stated have been told me by very relia
ble parties. She does not ask charity;
she asks work. Sbe is willing to earn
her own support. A.
Mempdis Thiaisr. Next Wednesday
night the well-known ctmedian, John
E. Owens, will commence an engage
ment at the theater and will be support
ed by a specially organized comedy com
pany. Byron's comedy entitled Our
Boys will be prodtced with Mr. Owensa
as " Perkyn Middlewick," aud Miss
Minette Thompson as "May Melrose,"
and Miss Emma Markley as "Viglet
Melrose" (our girls), the other charac
ters by the members of the troupe. The
syuopsis of the play indicates three acts
as follows: At tLe Butterman's; Our
Boys' Arrival from Abroad; At tbe Ba
ronet's; Our Boys and Girls Made Con
trary to Orders; Our Boys in Distress;
Our Girls to the Rescue. Tbe comedy
has hud a high run in New York and
other cities, but has sever been produced
here. On Thursday night Richard
Brinaley Sheridan's great comedy, The
Rivals, will be the attraction, with Mr.
Owens as " Bob Acres." On Friday
night tbe Victims and Salon Shingle
will be presented, which will probably
be repeated at the Saturday matinee, and

Corn's Circds. To-day week tho big
circus and menagerie, known as the
Ziological and Equestrian Exposition,
will camp on the bluff for two days. The
price of admission will be 50c. for adults
and 25c. for children. The circus at
tractions will include a fine orchestra, a
s'ud of thoroughbred Arabian horses and
ponies, performing elephants, lions,
camels, tigers, stags, monkeys, dogs,
mules, goats and other animals, besides
a Ure nanber of male, and female
riders, acrobats, gymnasts and specialty
performers, comprising the very best
artistes that could be fonnd on the con
tinent. The zoological departments are
filled with animals of all kinds from
nearly all portions of the globe, and
marina roosters, rye and curious, from
almost every sea ana ocean. A New
Orleans paper has the following to say
about the show:
All the costumes are brilliant and new;
the stock is all in fine condition, and the
performance gave tbe most unbounded
satisfactiac to all. A remarkable feature
of the entertainment was that not a
single performer failel in attempting a
single feat, nor was there anything
omitted from tbe performance that was
advertised on the programmes. This
alone deserves tbe highest praise, as
circzses are proverbial humbugs. Frm
the five performing elephants down to
the humblest announced feature all was
good. Tbe audience filled tbe canvas
in the afternoon, and in tbe evening it
was full and overSowmg with enthusias
tic people. Tbe ordinary attractions of
ihe Great New York and New Orleans
'A ological and Equestrian Exposition
would be shiuing stars in any other
circus. They deserve the fullest meed
of succesi wherever they go, and will no
doubt get it all.
Xeedle-Work In French loovcata.
France, as everyone knows, is pre
eminently the land of fine linen. From
a child's pinafore to a cardinal's surplice,
every articlo of wearing apparel that
linen can be turned into is the object
ot the greatest care and elaboration;
and few Englishwomen quit French ter
ritory without providing themselves with
choice specimens ot frencb lingerie.
To understand, however, he enormous
labor bestowed npoa that portion of fr
male dress, it is accessary to see a tros
seau in hand, and to see that it Is neces
sary to sntcr a convent. We enter, then,
a large, airy, whitewashed room; with a
crucihx over tbe mantelpicco and relig
ious mottoes painted on the walls. It
has large windows on each side, and sel
dura any kind of curtain to keep off the
dazzling light of midday summer, sit
ting on high benches withont backs are
twenty, thirty, fifty girls, as the case may
be, of all ages, from four and a half to
twenty-one, busily plying their needles.
At each end of the room presides a s'ih-
ter, and her miaint nun's garb is tbe enly
break in the prevailing monotony a
large, bare, over lighted room, rows of
little children and roung girls in white
caps, blue checked dresses and white
sprons, who stitch awy Bilently, almost
automatically, while the bright summer
hours pass by. As we enter they rise,
and remain standing while we inspect
the work. The sister takes us from one
lijtlo needle-womaa to another, proudly
exhibiting tbt stitches or folds of em
broidery she has in hand. Their gar
ments are produced, and we gaze in
wonder, first at the elaborata r.;ce of
needlo-work, and then at the feeble-looking
workers who had produced it. Jn
one instance a visitor and his liltlo'girl
were of the party, when the eomic and
the pathetic were combined, the eistfir,
with ingeiious simplicity, offering for
his inspection articles of female appnrol
generally supposed mysterious to the
other sex; while it was touching to see
the wistful look of those orphan children

machines at the happy little girl who
had fovfive minu.es quitted the world of
sport and sunshise and llowers for this
dreary prison. These orphans are waifs
and strays collected from Paris and the
neighboring country, and, inspecting
them narrowly, it is easy to see by their
weak eyes, narrov chests, and stooping
shoulders, how much their unnatural
life was telling upon a physique already
but predisposed to sickness and debility.

deep in water for two miles, and at last
beheld high and dry ground in advance.
The party approached and found an
island, with its shores well defined, and
shaded by the most enormous live oaks
and magnolias that they ever beheld. A
heavy atmosnhera of damnness and
gloom brooded over it. Its shores were
elosely protected by a dense growth of
brambles and vines. The cartv broke
through with a shout of relief, and
gathering light wood in a great pile,
built an enormous fire, by whieh they
warmed their chilled limbs. Night was
approaching and as it was necessary to
hasten back to camp, only a hasty sur
vey could be had of the island.
They were astounded by the unex
pected discovery. In a secluded nook a
siigular, silent figure burst suddenly on
tbe view as tiiey were threading their
way through tbe bushes.
Look a hore. exclaimed the fore
most, "here's a man, sure enough."
Un looking ahead, there appeared a
human image, but it stood so fixed and
immovable that they soon realized that
it could not living. The eyes of the
negroes protruded from their sockets
with superstitious alarm, but your cor
respondent approached tha solidary
presence. It was of stone. On draw
ing near, the faithful likeness to human
ity produced by the combined effects of
light and shadow was less distinct, but
it struck the explorers with awe and won
der. It is a rotund column of stone set
vertically in tbe ca th, but not attached
to any nether ledge of rock, as it might
havabeea bad nature been its artisan,
for it was loose enoigh to be swayed by
the application of force. The upper ex-t-emity
is rudely fashioned into the form
of a human bend, in which there are pro
tuberances which resemble tbe eyes, nose
and ears. The figure seems of majestic
statue and mien. At its base, by deli
cately removing some moss, a few
strange and unfamiliar characters were
disclosed. They do not apparently re
semble any hieroglyphics of ancient or
modern time knowa to tho student of
language. They are siill less allied to
the picture writing of the Aztecs. Near
the image lies a second column of stone,
but it is thrown to the ground. If it were
ever fashioned to a resemblance of the
human form divine -the head has been
broken off, as it was nowhere to be found,
The idol is so ponderous that it was

On the supposition that it might mark

found nothing. The negroes freely ex
pressed the opinion that here was buried
a treasure trove, onco the booty of pi
rates from Barcelona. The lie raid party
remained on the island all night. Tbe
next day it was toand that tbe island ex
tended far southward, and near the
extremity were several ' large Indian
mouns. It would be easy to conceive
that they were eree'ed by a pre-historic
race, which also offered worship to the
stone idol. In these wilds may be found
a rich archaeological research.
