Tlio Bloody Knife A colored youth, whose name is sup pressed by special request, became engaged, yesterday afternoon, in a dispute with Jim Brown, also colored, who keeps an eating house 'on Cedar street near Cherry. Brown finally struck the former on the head, when the young man drew a pocket-knife and stabbed him in the back in two different places. He then turned and ran up Cedar to Summer street, and was crossing from Summer to Union street when he was in tercepted and arrested by officer Davis. A large crowd assembled and followed the of ficer and his prisoner to the stationbouse, to which place Brown was afterward brought. His wounds bled freely, but they arc evidently not of a dangerous character. Ambitions Sportsmen. Unlucky amateur fishermen who visit the bayous and lakes over the river, find it convenient to purchase strings of fish from colored residents of Hopefield, and for the same reason that ambitious sportsmen,find ing birds wild and scarce in the suburbs, call at the game stores and purchase a doz en partridges which are carried home and presented to the better half as the result of a days glorious sport. Memphis Ledger. AATliat will our turkey killers say to the above? Bv the way, an indiscreet market er had an interview with the Sargent of the Candle, of the Ninth Ward Mob, yes terdav morning, and made soitte imnortant disclosures.

Levi was called unon vesterdav morn ing in the police court to explain away the cliarge of assault and battery, which was written opposite lus name, anil Jsobt. Wat ler was allowed an opportunity ot re peating the precise language he had ad dressed to Mr. Levi, and which resulted in his being hit a couple of times by that in dividual. Ine testimony went to show that a colored boy in the em ploy oi waucr nau purciiaseu a pair of loots at Levi's store, at a price AATaller considered extortionate and so expressed himself in Levi's hearing. The latter thereupon charged him with be ing a runner for a rival house, ordered him out ot the store, and upon his refusal to go, struck him twice. Levi was fined five dol lars and ATaller was discharged. AAHIiam Farlcss, the young man who snot Alollie Williams bat unlay nignt, was fined ten dollars for firing a pistol inside the corporation, and was then discharged for want of prosecution. Sentenced to be tiling. The Chatlanoofa Commercial of the 23d says: "Yesterday, at 2 o'clock i. m., Shade AVestmoreland, convicted of tiic murder of Emberlin, was conducted from the jail to the court room, were he was to re ceive the sentence of the Court. A large crowd had gathered to wituecss the scene. AA'estmoreland took his seat inside the bar, and apieared calm and unmoved. Judge Key addressed the prisoner, refer ring to the deed for which he is to be pun ished. The manner of address, though sympathetic and mingled with feeling, was nevertheless deeidedly firm. Afterthe pre liminary remarks w'cre made, he command ed the prisoner to stand and receive the sentence of de.th, to be executed Jan. 0, 1ST4. This he did, still remaining cool and unmoved. Every one in the court room was moved more than the prisoner. AYliile going from the courthouse back to the jail, he remarked to the guard that he guessed be could suffer the punishment that many others before him had received' Murder in Mcjfniry County. The Jackson Whiy and Tribune of the 22djsays: "On last Sunday night four men entered by force the residence of Jonco Young, near McNairy station, and demand ed the ierson of John l'asbcrry, colored. Before entering the house several shots were fired into the door, which was finally broken down, and the negro, alarmed and terrified, crept under the floor and had there secreted himself. One o,f the murderers, however, informed Mrs. Young that her hus band would answer as well as the negro, and plainly intimated that miles the negro was round, that Young's life would be taken; thereupon she disclosed the hiding place ot the negro, and the murderers procuring a lantern went outside the house, shot under the floor, and wounded the negro until he cried out that if they would not kill him under the floor he would come out, which he did. He had no sooner gained the ground outside than he was perforated with balls. Thenegro had had a difficulty a few days before with Itobert Mancss, a re spectable citizen of the county, in which Mancss alleged that the negro had assaulted him with a club, which he resisted by wounding the negro with two pistol shots. A coroner's inquest failed toelicit sufficient testimony to "spot" the murderers, and it may remain wrapt in mystery." Advice to Laborers. To the Union and American: Many or our laborers, who have lost their employment, are complaining or hard limes. Complaining and finding fault do not alleviate the cares and troubles of life, nor meet current expenses. If unforseen public calamines have deprived us of a good jwying job, let us look diligently for some sort of a situation and accept it, no matter if it does pay less. AAliy should we not imitate the Yankee:' If he cannot cam a dollar per day, he keeps his good humor and takes a half-dollar for sonic job, look ing out the while for a better one. Many shops in town are obliged to discliarge hands; but let it lw for from us to be cast down. Let us keep wide awake, and soon we shall find ourselves in good employment. There is always some chance work in our city, and ir itbe not just the kind that we like to do, still, it will supply our daily wants. The work will not come to us or itself; We shall, in the present emergency, have to keep a look out for it. Let us knock at the many doors of our in dustry, and an entrance will be allowed. Let us not hesitate to do so. It is honor able to solicit work, and under the present circumstances men will not repel us harsh ly, but will try to make room fir us. Our earnings might not procure us a rat chicken every day: but never mind, we can live for a time on meat and well-baked bread. Let us economize. I will point out a few rules by which to save many pennies. Instead of paying to the retail grocer twenty cents for a peck of meal, go a few stejis further to the mill and buy a bushel of meal for sixty cents, and save twenty cents. Instead or going to market every morning and paying ten cents per pound Tor meat, purchase it ror four cents from countrymen, who carry loads of it through the streets during the day. Then' are many other ways to save money, and it takes onlv a little thought to dis cover them. By frugal use of our means we shall be able to weather the storm of the unsettled times. S. L. Siqmax.

Chicago's proposition to have the next World's fair held there, is meeting with some opposition: "In the first place," says the Boston Post, "it isn't certain that the next world will have a fair; and in the sec ond place, those who'd be likely to attend it will prefer a "more pious town In which to celebrate." A minister of our acquaintance, who has excellent control over ' his feelings, lias a habit of characterizing a person who exas perates him as "the sinner," where other nfen would use the word "scoundrel," "scamp," "rascal," or something of that sort. He says he considers it perfectly or thodox to call a man a "sinner," as we are all sinners. Down in Pulaski they tell a good story about old ISe'd,'' Gov. Brown's body sen-ant. Joon after the close of the war Ned came jo Nashville with the Governor, who was mown at tliat time its "Gen." Brown.

The Chi cago man said he couldn't pay it just then but would settle next day, so the St. Louis man came again the next day. Then the Chicago mail told him to drop in the day following, at wlucli time he would pay part of it atTleast. The St. Louis man called again at the time appointed, and the Chi cago man said he had been unable to make certain collections he had relied upon, but as he had promised to pay at least a por tion of the $lp0 account", he would be as good as his word, and. then that obliging, reliable Chicago man handed to tliat Irust ing, confiding St. Louis man, a one dollar bill. Huntley, a well known newspaper chap of St. Louis, shook the pencil business last summer and went into hotel keeping at a Missouri railroad station m company with another enterprising individual who had some money tliat he was anxious to get rid of, the understanding being tliat Huntley was to put his experience (?) against the other man's funds. In about three months the establishment was closed, and the firm declared insolvent, owing principally to the Tact that Huntley's knowledge or the hotel business was so very limited. His partner was relating his experience to a syuijiathizing friend. He said: "Huntley was to furnish the experience, and I was to furnish the capital. I don't want to be un derstood as doubting his abilities, but when we busted, at the end of tliree months, I had the experience, and Huntley had the capital." TRIBUTE OF RESPECT. The Late Thomas A. R. Xclson Action of tlic East Tennessee Bar. Proceeding were had on the 22nd iilst, in the Supreme Court at Khoxville, in respect to the memory of the late Hon. ihomas A It. Nelson. A committee of the Knoxvillc bar prepared and submitted an address, in which the public life of Judge Nelson was reviewed. From the address we make the following extract. "Judge Nelson was bonl in Roane countv Tennessee, on the l!)th day of March, 1812, and died at his residence in Khoxville, of cholera, on the 24th ot August, lsi. AAlnle he was still a child his parents re moved with him to Knoxvillc. In 1S24 or 1825, he entered East Tennessee College, now East Tennessee University, and gradu ated m 1828. After leaving college he en tered upon the study of law under the late Chancellor Thomas L. AA'illiams, and was admitted to the bar before he had attained the age of 21 years. "In 1S33, he was appointed by Governor Carroll, Attorney General for the First Ju dicial Circuit, and was twice elected by the Legislature to the same office. As a prose cuting oflicer he displayed tliat energy and conscientiousness in the discharge of his duty, which characterized all his eflbrts and" personal conduct. 'In 1844 he auivassed the First District, as elector for Mr. Henry Clay, and in 1848 he canvassed the same district as elector for General Taylor. "In 1851 he was appointed Commissioner of the United States to China, as successor to Hon. Caleb.Cushing, but having lost his lirst wife a year before, and the compensa tion being inadequate to the expenses to be incurred on the mission, and to the care and provision for his family of young chil dren, he declined to accept the position. "In 1S59 he became a candidate for Con gress against Col.lL.iC.Haynes,and afteran exciting contest in a closely contested race, he was elected, and upon entering Con gress, found that body deeply agitated by the approaching election of President Lin coln, that convulsed the whole country. "Ardently attached to the union of the States, he took a prominent part in the ex citing debates which arose in the organiza tion en" the House or Representatives, and during the ensuing session, he made great reputation as a powerful political debater, and the London Times published one of his speeches in full, and pronounced it the finest forensic eilbrt of modern American law-givers." "He firmly adhered to the cause of the Federal Union during the cival war; yet at the close of the .war, when the Union arms proved triumphant, and the tide of success rolled over his prostrate South, will full knowledge of the certain loss to political prestige, he stood a tower of strength for the vanquished and largely contributed to the speedy restoration of his countrymen or their political and civil rights, and was one or the eminent counsel who defended President Johnson upon his impeachment, in 1SU8. "In 1S70, Judge Nelson was elected one of the Judges of. the Supreme Court, which position he resigned after little more than one year's service on the bench." Suitable resolutions' were passed, and ap propriate remarks were made by several members of the bench and' bar. The 'pro ceedings were ordered to be spread on the records of the court, and it was resolved that the Attorney General Ikj requested to insert them in his next volume or Reports, as an enduring testimonial in respect to the memory of the deceased professional brother.

About 4 o'clock on Sunday evening last, Edgefield was tlid sce'ric of one of the itidst shDcltliW tragt'diel thdt lids eve tWdn &i acted in a civilized community. 'For two years past, Conrad Kessler, a German, has been keening a bakery and confectionery on Main street, Edgelield, his family living in the samahouse, a two story uiick,- a lew doors east of Tulip street. During tliat period, Kessler and his wife have had fre quent quarrels, and on two or threo occa sions have been arrested for disorderly con duct arid disturbing the peace of the neigh borhood. At the time above indicated, an other quarrel ensued and the altercation which occurred in the store-room was dis tinctly heard by persons in the neighbor borhood. A few moment after the quarrel commenced Mrs. Kessler made her .appearance at the front door, and . just as she stepped out on tho pavement was heard to use abusive ep ithets to her husband. She then left the door suddenly and hurriedly, and to all np pearanccs like a person who feared some bodily hacm. From her position at the door, she walked in a brisk pace to a front window just beyond the door, and while in a slightly stooping attitude, one arm rest ing on the window Sill, and peeping through the pane of glass, the report or a pistol was heard. After the firing, Mrs. Kessler gave a shriek, and ran about four teen steps to a point opposite the side door or AYeakley's store, where she foil, the blood oozing quickly rrom tho wound she had received. A minute afterwards she gasped several times, and lifo was extinct. Two physicians were on the ground almost instantly after the occurrence. Upon an examination or the wound, it was found that the ball had entered just above the nipple of the left breast,, ranging down wards and piercing tho heart'. City Marslial Miller and Deputy Marshal Green were on tho street when the firing occurred, and less than a hundred "yards from the point where the tragedy occurred. AAlth all possible haste they repaired to the spot, and fearing that Kessler would at tempt to escape, ran around Tulip street and entered the alley leading to the back premises of Kessler's bakery. They found him in the act or hitching his horse to the wagon. Miller told him that he had killed his wire, and lie replied that he reckoned not, and he would go and see. In company with the two marshals, Kessler came through the house to the front pavement, where the wife lay weltering in her blood. Looking down upon the lifeless form of the partner of liis bosom, he remarked: "AVell, it's done now, and it can't be helped; I told her to let me alone." He then said to the Marshal: "I surrender myself," at the same tinie drawing out a Colt's navy from his person and handing it to the officer. The body was then removed from the pavement to the room in rear of the store. The bilkers were then in the net of conducting Kessler to jail, when he remarked, excitedly, "Is there nobody here to attend to her?" A gentleman said that two doctors liad been in attendance. One of the physicians standing near him said, "She's dead, and no attention is necessary now." Kessler, in a passionatomanner, re plied, "She's not dead you're a d-d liar!" The Marshals then took him in charge and started for the jail. AVhile proceeding down AAroodland street toward Nashville, Kessler saw John Orr, or the firm of Orr Bros., standing at the uoor, and railed upon him to come out. Mr. Orr came out, and in a cool manner Kess ler told him what liad occurred, and pulling out his pocket-book, he told Orr tliat he owed him for six ban-els or Hour, and also was indebted to Phillips, Jackson & Co. for two barrels, immediately counting out SOS which he handed Orr to pay for the same. Reaching the suspension bridge, he again pulled out his pocket-book, and said , , i. , i ... t i- . : ne nau no runner use lor a, am tuicn n over into the river. The particulars or the tragedy spread ra- nidlv throughout Edgefield, and in a short space of time, a large crowd assembled on Main street, discussing the heart-rending occurrence until after dark, when Coroner Brantlev and Deputy Coroner Ryan ar rived. Ryan reached the house a short time before Brantley, and proceeded to hold the inquest. He selected a jury composed of AA". R. Cornelius, W. M. Murray, J. B. Canlield. It. S. Miller. Joseph Meyer, Geo. T. AVeaklev and James T. Bell. Several witnesses were examined before the jury, the first being the son of the deceased and step-son of Kessler. His testimony, gave the position of Kessler when the pistol was fired, and showed him to be standing in the back part ot the store, near a door leading into the back room. Other witnesses de tailed what is already noted above. The jury then repaired to" the adjoining room, and returned a verdict that the deceased came to her death from a pistol shot fired by Kessler, and that the act was wilful and intentional, and that the wound received by the deceased from the evidence of the examining physician was necessarily ratal. Kessler has been a resident hereabouts for some fourteen years. He was a member or the tenth Federal regiment during the war, and afterwards one of the Metropoli tan Police. He was an excellent baker, and a hard working man, but or the most violent passions. Had it rrot been for the domestic difficulties alluded to above, and terminating in such a shocking manner, his business would have made him indepen dent. Mis. Kessler was a widow when he mar ried her, with several children, including a grown daughter, the latter being very' much affected by" the tragical occurrence. Mr. Miller as prosecutor, obtained a war rant yesterday morning from Esq. Camp bell, and returned the same before Justice Cassetty, the trial being fixed for the 2Gth inst. at 10 o'clock. - "A Fashionable Yorinj? Lady on Her Travels." Under this heading the Louisville Com mercial tells of the adventures of a stylish woman hailing from Memphis, and Killing herself Clara Iternsen. The Commercial says: She had considerable baggage with her, and seemed to have plenty of money, as she was in the-habit of talcing rides about the city daily,' and spent considerable in the way of dry goods, notions, etc, relui sitc for a fashionable lady to appear in public. She was decidedly good-looking, and attracted, a great deal of attention, es pecially from shop-keepers and young gen tlemen, who had heard through some source or other, that she was an heiress, or laid claim to a large amount of property in Cuba, through the .death, of a relative. A certain young man living in the AVestern district was so infatuated with her, or her anticipated fortune, that he has during her stay been at her side constantly, accompany ing her to places or amusement, and even loaning hcr small sums of money at various times, .as. her. remittances from the South had been delayed. Her landlady, with whom she. boarded tliree weeks, told her rather bluntly that she must seek other quarters, 'as it was not her custom to board people on their good looks alone. She wanted something more substantial, jmd didn't see whyherbankercould not advance the required amount. Miss It. was actually conipel.'eJ to leave a part of her baggage as security, and go to a hotel. Here she gave out that her funds were so tied up that she could not use them until she heard from, her bankers, and that she had expended a large sum for a charitable purpose. This story was the means of a fine room being placed at her disposal, but unfortunately it leaked out that she was averse to paying out money for anything if she could jwssi blv avoid it, and the landlord, coining to the conclusion tliat she was traveling ou her good looks, politely requested her to. leave. He allowed her to take her baggage with ber. She visited several other hotels, and succeeded better than she at first anticipated,- getting her board at a greatly reduced figure. The last one she stopped at, however, she had the temerity to order a champagne supper for a select party, which upset all her plans for the future and dispelled her Cuba story. The bill for this supper amounted to quite a sum, which is still on the books of the hotel against her. The landlord peremptorily ordered her to leave. Her baggage washeld as security until such a time as she could pay the amount. She took what she could carry in a small ponnanteau and left for JeJi'ersonville. since which time her where abouts are unknown. Appleton. AV. T.

A Conflict Between the Officers or the Law and the Outlaws. Two Skirmishes Two Robbers and two Citizens -Wounded One of the Outlaws Captured. The Knoxville Chronicle or the 22dsays: "Last night, about 10:30 o'clock, two young men, Mr. . 1. Gobi) and John iioweu, arrived in the city and at once applied for assistance to arrest a party ot robbers doubtless the escaped prisoners or the Knoxville jail, Loudermilk, Maugnim and the two Mvnatts. Cobb and Howell stated that rhev, in company with Jas. K. Love and T. D. Aniell, and em powered by law, had been on the trail ot these outlaws ever since the Blount county tragedv occurred, and yesterday evening came up with them about twenly-fivennles from this citv, and somewhere in the neighborhood ot' Strawberry Plains. The robbers, being ordered to halt, reftised and their refusal was followed by the discharg ing of a load of duck shot at the party by one of the pursuing posse, which, however, ow ing to the distance, did not take ellecf on the outlaws, who tinned at once and returned tlie fire, two of their balls taking effect and disabling for the time being two of the officers' jwsse, Mr. T. D. Arncll, be ing shot through the fleshy iart of the thigh, and James K. Love in the breast. The distance and two coats, as well as two shirts and a vest, doubtless saved the man's life, and as it was the wound proved slight. Further pursuit was given up and it was decided that the two parties not wounded should come to Knoxville after assistance. On arriving here, they were referred to Sheriff Gossett. Mr. Gossett, Deputy Sheriff Swan, Pat. Cain and several others, started out last night about midnight, with the intention of bringing back the scoun drels ir possible." The Chronicle of the 23d says: After the two young men left the scene of the first skirmish to procure assistance from this city, another skirmish took place between several of the citizens and two of the out laws, Mangrum and Loudermilk, in which it is thought one or them was wounded. The two Mynatts were both M ounded in the first skirmish, and one or them It. II. Mynatt, so severely that he was una ble to travel. The rest or the band brought him that night to the rann or a Mr. Marslial and left him there. Sheriff Gossctt's party, an account or whose de parture for the field of action we gave in yes terday's issue, anived at the house of Mrs. Vinyard, a sister of the Mynatts, about daybreak. They did not find the robbers About 8 o'clock Gossctt's party arrived at Mr. Marshal's and took charge of R. II. Mynatt, whom they found had received buckshot wounds in both thiglis and in his side. Mr. Gossett at once started out to find some means of conveying him to the depot. In the meantime Pat Cain searched tho person of the prisoner and found four pocket-books, in one or which about $5 worth of postage stamps were fimnd, and among them a large number of ollicial stamps. Also quite a quantity or Rockwood scrip, an evidence that he was connected with the robbery in Roane coun ty. On his person was also found a Ku Klux cap or disguise, made or black cloth. The discription or the man that did the shooting in Blount county is filled by him as well as Loudermilk, and the parties wil be notified of his arrest, and will doubtless come and identify him. As soon as conveyance could be obtain ed, he was removed to McMillan's Station, where he was placed on the freight train, and brought to this city, and. is now at his old quarters. His wounds arc painful, but not serious, and will soon give way to the proper medical treatment he will receive. Ganum Mynatt, it is said, made his way np the country somewhere to have his wounds dressed, but his exact whereabouts could not be ascertained. Mangrum and Loudermilk are together, it is thought, and are still in tliat vicinity, and hopes have been entertained that they will yet be captured. JfO FIGHTING EDITOK REO.WKEO. A AA'estern editor has put in practice a plan which will enable all papers to dis pense with the usual fighting member of the staff. One morning he was waited onby the bigest kind or a fellow, armed with a terrific cudgel, with several and sundry protuberances sticking out all around, mar velously resembling Colts, Derringers, and Bowies, who saluted him with, "AViere's that scoundrel, the editor?" Our friend said, "He is not about; but please take a seat and amuse yourself with a paper; he will be in in a few minutes," and hurried down stairs, at the foot of which he met another man still more profane and fierce who asked the same question in tho same language. "Ohsaid the retreating editor, "go up stairs; you will find him reading the paper." Accordingly up he went, like a steam-engine, letting off steam at every step. Our friend waited a minute, and such a crash slam, bang, oath, curse, ob jurgation asif Pandemonium was let loose. What the result was was never known, as our friend didn't wait. Dickens once said of the newsboys that "they seemed fresh from the hands of Nature." Some one thinks that Nature must have had very dirty hands. SPIKITUALISX USEFUL. One reason why people who liave no faith in Spiritualism disregard its claims to authority is that they see no evidence of its usefulness. They argue tliat it adds noth ing to the morality, wealth or intellectual strength of the community. In its teach ing it lamely imitates the Cliristianity it would supersede. In is revelations it nincs a dozen glaring mistakes before it IlunpGM lo Show nu," siStnhcaut facts. In its iHamfesfalitiitsf it only (lot bunglmgly scepticism must viola ff last.- was nan-ated at the annual meetiiia 6f the' Indiana State Association or Spiritualists last week, which must convince the most incredulous that SDirtualism is a blessing. One or the sneakers said that rcc'Clltly whife, traveling he saw on iuc car a man wuom the conductor was about to put ofT at a small station whc:e the unfortunate would probably liave died from exposure. In the very act he was re strained. By the side or the stranger he saw the spirit or a woman whom he sup posed to be his wife. He hesitated, then asked: "Did you lose your wife three, years ago?" Tlie reply was affirmative. The spirit looked appealing!'. Tlie man was carried to the next station. And now if people want to travel dead-head onthe rail road, a ghostly companion may prove use ful, unless railroad companies should order tliat conductors must not take spirits on the trains. CHEAP DISINFECTANTS. One pound of green copperas, costing seven cents, dissolved in one quart of wa ter, poured down -a water closet, will ef flectually destroy the foulest smells. On board .ships and steamboats, about hotels and other pla'Ce'S, there i nothing so nice to purify tlie air. Simple greed Copperas dissolved under the bed in anything that will hold waterwill render a hospital, Or any other place for the sick, free from un pleasant smells. For butchers' stalls, fish markets, slaughter houses, sinks, and where there are offensive, putrid gases', dissolve copperas and sprinkle it about, and in a few days the smell will pass away, ir a cat, rat or mouse dies about the house audsends forth an offensive gas, place some dissolved copperas in an open vessel near the place where the nuisanee is,and it will soon purify the atmosphere. A few hours before his execution, Capt. Fry was accorded the privilege of making a protest against his capture and trial, in which he stated fully the circumstances or his capture, trial and sentence. He claims they were captured about eighteen miles north of Mornn Point, east end of the island of Jairiaica, alWM ten o'clock at night of 30th October. He claims his. papers were all in complete order, especially his regis try, crew list, passenger list, clearance' from Kingston and dispatch trom customhouse.
