A couple of men arrived in this city on Monday night, direct trom some poiut in Southern Alabama, from whence they had come all the way on bat ; thoy were for eigners, one being a Dane and the other a Swiss, and neither of them could speak English. They were in the most extremo destitution ragged, bare-foot and dirty. They said they had traded oft all their good clothes along the way fat tho moans of subsistence, and seemed very anxious, as well they might, to obtain employment. They were provided for, we understand, by a gentleman in North Nashville, and will undoubtedly obtain work in some ca pacity.

They are painted and decorated very tastily, and yesterday we nouoeo. a large painting on the outside of one, occupying several pannels in the centre, which was really an elegant production of art It was, we should judge, a Swiss scene, and embraced a most fascinating landscape view, besides a herd of cattle, a wateiing trough, cottages, children gathering flow ers, and many other points, the whole painted in very natural colors and buried beneath a heavy coating of transparent varnish, which gave an effect equal to Frenoh glass. A very heavy train of freight passed southward yesterday. It contained a cargo of miscellaneous goods, destined for va rious points southward. Business men and others in the country below here, can certainly find no room for complaint on account of a delay of their freight at this point The utmost dispatch and promptness is used here in the matter of forwarding. Our attention was parti cularly called to this the other day; when at the Louisville depot & big train cf freight just arrived, and having occasion to at once visit the Chattanooga and Paci fic depots, we found upon our arrival, the identical oars that were designed to go fur ther south, all switched np with many others, engine bitched on, and fairly ready for a start towards the Gull. We said to ourself that this indicated "business, "and we believe so still.

Criminal Court The murder case of the State vs. Morgan, was commenced in the Criminal Court yesteiday morning, and will piobably occupy to-day and possibly to-morrow. The prisoner is charged with murdering his father-in-law by shooting nearly a year since. He is a negro, of black skin meli tin statute, prominent features and sullen countenance, about thirty or thirty-five years of ago. We have heard but little of the evidence thus far, and know but little of its character. We can only say that Morgan is unfortunate in possessing one of the worst looking faces we ever saw. Common Law Ooubt. The case of Cobb vs. Wallace was concluded yesterday, and resulted in a judgment in favor of the plaintiff of .".71.20. The case of E.

The Blondes commence an engagement nt Masonic Hall on Thursday night, and if we are to judge by the criticisms of the press everywhere, we are to have a rare dramatic feast. Tho Atlanta FuUUiyrncer of a recent date says : DeGive's Opera House was indeed once more the "theatre of attraction.'' for last night the very brilliant and nehareke performance of the burl sa, pie of "Pluto" or the Magic Lyre, provided amusement tor the evening and food for the imagina tion for a large and appreciative, and we may say, very select audienoe. Tho play was a reproduction for this season at the Opera House, but the first presentation by Miss Lis Weber's popular t'urlesqners,and we can justly say, tendered inferior to none. Miss Lisa impersonated Orpheus, the Young God of Music, and though the part, as it is written, comprises too much versatality to admit of an elaborate display of musical talent, yet the bril liant young representative illustrated her fondness for the long lest Enrydice in the most perfect manner in burlesque, and though the "trees did not bend their lofty branches" nor the Styx stay Us course, be cause of his enchanting music, the audi ence bowed their approval of Miss Lisa's rendition of the part from the first intro duction of her lithe and elegant form on the stage, and throngh the varied scenes which she was made to pass, even to his Satanic Majesty's domain, while in pursuit of the object of her immutable love. The (MsM mtiiait'irvm concerning Miss Weber is, she is first endowed with beauty of features and foim, versatile, reads well, her peiformauce is ah pudore, and her much envied reputation .n.v tn.he, and withal a snceessfnl yonng manageress. Miss CassieTroy as "Arisbens" attracted much attention in ber sportive and amus ing part. Miss Hattie O'Neal as the cov eted "Eurydice ' is deserving of notice, and Messrs. Ketchnm, Vincent and Atkins were commensurate with the task of sus taining their reputation as comedians, etc. The suit atrnliiai b. Ward. The telegraph has already furnished some particulars in regard to a suit bronght against Zeb. Ward to recover $20,000 damages by a negro woman named Henrietta Wood, living in Cincinnati. In the Cincinnati C'numrrrinl of Sunday we find the fullowing with reference to the case: A suit by Henrietta Wood, a colored woman residing in this city, against Zeb. Ward, a resident of Kentucky, to recover $20,000 damages, originally bronght in the Superior Conrt, has leen transferred to the United alaies Uonrl, wfcere tne peti tion was filed yesterday. The plaintiff says that in the year lbT I, and for many years provions thereto, she was a free mulatto woman, rosidiug in Cincinnati: and that the defendant, Zeb. Ward, together with Kebeca Boyd, kid napped and abdnoted br from her plaee of abode, to be delivered to the defend ant, Ward, in the State of Kentucky, the defendant knowing her to be a free woman and r resident of Cincinnati. The plainlifl further alleges that Ward kept ber in bondage soven months, and then sold her to William Pnllian, a slave trader, who took her to the Sta'e of Mis-Mi-sippi, and sold her to one Girard Bran don for tho snm of $l,0.".n. The said Bran don forced and compelled her to labor on his plantations in Mississippi and Texas as a common field liand for fifteen yoars. The plaintiff further alleges that by reason of being held in slavery, as afore said, she has been deprived of her time and tho valne of hr labor, worth at least A.vni pei year, aud also that during that period, slio was subject to grest hardships, abuse ami oppression, snd was prevented from returning to her homo until April, IMt).

Btnk of Tennessee notes are dull at i-C l ilt 1 1 of the t Tariff upon Trade The Philadelphia Jftrth American of a recent date remarks: Since the first of January the importers ot sugar, tea, conee, iron, and other arti cles, upon which the tariff levies a reduced duly, have been very busy taking goods out of the bonded werehouse, where they had been lying for some time awaiting the change, in anticipation of which the busi ness at the customhouse had been reduced. This is the way that all changes in the tann operate, and, notwithstanding all that is said about relieving the people by reduc icg the rates, it may be doubted whether tho people ever receive much of the bene lit For months prior to the commence ment of the year nobody bought these commodities lieyonil tne point of actual necessity, in view of the expected fall in prices. Great quantities were imported. bnt went into bond and were stored away to await tho dtte of the new tariff: so that the Treasury got none of the benefit of the trade, and, in fact, business was rendered peculiarly dull and gloomy. There can be little doubt that very much of the stagnation and depression attendant upon the closing months of the year are to be charged to this account, and mer chants, who are apt to be misled by the constant clamor for reductions of the tariff every year, should reflect upon the great interruption of commerce produced by these charges. we could much better stand a heavy duty on almost any article than to have trade interrupted in this way by annual changes dated atiead. which sns pond business and produce unnatural stagnation and gloom. Commerce can ac custom itself to almost any condition of tilings, ami is able to go on prosperously if it is not intetfored with. Doubt, uncer tainly and frequent changes are the ene mies of business. But as tho Mock-, of many of IheBe ar ticles iu thu bands of dealers must be very low, in consequence of this state of things, business is now rendered unusually brisk by the necessity that exists for obtaining fresh supplies. The most unfortunate fea ture in the affair is that many sugar refin eries in various cities either suspended en tirely or ran on half time during this period of waiting. If we were to estimate all the loss of wages and of interest on capital in vested in business sustained in conse quence of this stagnation, it would far more than overbalance any profit on the present activity of trade. Our only hope of compensation lies in the belief that the reduced duties and prices may stimulate a far larger trade, both iuternal aud exter nal. The presont impulse affords an indi cation of this. Tlic Indian Trade and the Kuppl) of Col ion. We fear there is no little cause to antici pate a most unfavorable combination of circumstances for the prosperity of cotton growing in most of those countries which supplied the void caused by the American war especially in India; and there is a danger once more of our maufactures being reduced to dependence upon one cotton field. The most unfavorable circumstance is of course the severity of the competition which the Southern States are once more enabled to maintain with all their rivals, and every succeeding account makes the prospect of this competition more formid able. Last year there was an t utituated crop of 2,750,000 bales, which really proved to be a crop of 3,250,000. A yield like this at once placed the United States ahead of its rivals, and was sufficient to depress the price of the article, notwith standing a simultaneous diminution of the import from India, and the improved de mand at the beginning of the year such a fall of price, we need not say, tending to discourage the cultivation in every district bat the Southern States. Now, however, the prospect Is even more discouraging. The first estimate of the American Agri cultural Bureau as to this year's crop was ,H million bales, an increase on the actual crop of last year; bnt "certain unfavor able contingencies" reckoned on not hav ing occurred, the Bureau now places the estimate at 3,800,000 bales. Possibly there is an error in the calculation; bat the way in which the estimate of last year was exceeded makes it reasonable to be lieve that there is no exaggeration, and that there is, at any rate, a sufficient chance of the estimate being under the mark to make the effect of such a crop on the markets worth considering. The meaning of it is that America would be able to export half-a-million more bales to Europe than she exported last year; and as, on the whole, there is yet no failure in the average supply from the rest of the world, such an excess would, in any case, have a great effect on price. Just at this very time, too, the continental war, by closing many rrencn factories aud inter rupting German ones, diminishes the de mnnd; and although the quantity taken tor the continent was by comparison small we need not explain how the last additions to a surplus supply are disproportionately operative upon price. It is no wonder toen that in the Indian trade there should be complaint of great dulness, and that the prospect of the ootton cultivation is not a very bright one. As a matter of fact we learn from the report of Mr. Forbes, the Cotton Commissioner in Bombay presidency, pubrtsbed in the tiumbay Oazette of Dec. 2, the area of cultivation has diminished this year in consequence of the unsatisfactory results of the previous season a short crop sold at a low price The extent of the diminution is as foi lows : Aores Under cultivation in 1889-70 3,264, ti03 Under cultivation in 1870-71 .... 2,874,856 Diminution of area 389,74 or about 12 per cent the falling off being almost exclusively in native cotton. As there is very little prospect of an im provement in price very soon rather the reverse there is too much reason to fear a further diminution of the Indian cultiva tion, while the Southern States are gradu ally re-acquiring their position as almost the sole source of ootton supply. It re mains to be seen of couise how a low price will affect the South under its new industrial conditions; but we see little reason to doubt that machinery and scien tific agiioulture will be as potent with free labor as the slave system without them, at least for a time, for there is always the danger of the negro failing as a laborer in the second generation of freedom, as he has failed in our West Indian colonies. In any event, uniil it is seen experimentally that the south cannot produce profitably at the old prices, the new cotton-growing industries in other parts of the world are exposed to a danger of an unknown and formidable magnitude.

On going to bed I rubbed my leg with the liniment ; the next morning I felt much better, so much so that I could attend to my business all the next day, with very little pain. The Doctor then insisted that I should take it along with me, and it was very fortunate that I did, f jr I got a very severe fall at the Kimball in Atlanta that braised me ap very ranch . 1 went to my room and ap plied the Magic Arnica Liniment, and was entirely relieved, being the next morning free from pain and was able to attend the plowing match.
