Miss , Gjhnan. as . "Sally. Scraggs?' kept thej audience in a roar of laughter from the; lime they appeared until the curtiin drop-t Ted. A great many reserved seats were secur ed, but owing to the heavy rain which fell during the entire evening, many of these1 were not occupied. Monday Nigut Miss Fanny B. Price commences au engagement at the Opera House on Monday evening. A St. Joseph excliange thus refers to this lady: "The play last riight was comparatively new, and. had never been produced before. in t. Joseph. It was well calculated to develop the versatile powers of Miss Price, a3d she was equally successful as "Jennie Wilson," as "Lady Eversleigh," and as "Madam Brewer." The three characters are so different from each other that ona could not but wonder at the readiness with which she adapted herself to each. At times she seemed to forget her surround ings, aim to lhj acting uuuer au inspiration, so perfectly did she seem to be the character she assumed. In person and address,' juiss Price is one of the most atti active persons, oh the American stage. Faultless in form and figure, and possessed of a taste which enables her to select her wardrobe in such a manner that it shall at once become her self and her assumed cliaracter, it is safe to. say that she lias made friends of all who have seen her in St. Joseph. She combines heart and intellect. POLICE PICKINGS. The police record for yesterday publishes, to all who are curious enough to examine its paces, certain information regarding William Bobinson. It states, firstly, that he had been druns the night previous; sec ondly, that he was also disorderly; thirdly, that he was fined ten dollars yesterday morning; fourthly, that he was sent to the work-house in default of payment. These entries are also made in the case of Thomas Winchester, with the single exception of the amount ot the line, which, in his case, is fifteen instead of ten dollars. These worthies made their appearance at the Louisville depot Friday night, making such nuisauces of them selves that a trusty, fleet-footed youth was sent to the police station in order to secure their, arrest. Abput nine o'clock yesterday morning, the following dispatch was received lroui jir, Ureennald, oi Glas gow Junction, Ivy.: "Chief Police, Nash ville: Arrest iSobinson and Winchester, Left here at 12:10 for Nashville." Scfgent Tiguor telegraphed back that they had been arrested, whereupon the following tlispatcli irom. the same gentleman was received; "They stole some blankets here last night. Will send for them.' Judging from these dispatches, the citizens of Glasgow were ;lau to learn that Jaessrs. Hobinson and Winchester had readied our city in safetv, and that they had been provided with comfortable lodgings. A warm welcome doubtless awaits these individuals upon their return to Glasgow, and under the cir cumstances, we are willing that they should return to that place as soon as possible. The people of Nashville can manage to rub along m some way, without .Messrs. Robin son and Winchester, after they have been convinced that it is best for them to do so. Of course we would like to have these en terprising young men to settle among us and identity their interests with ours, but reallv those Glasgow people have prior claims upon them and sellishness is not a characteristic of the citizens of Nashville, hence no serious objection will be made to the early departure Irom our city of Messrs. J.obmson and Winchester. Lizzie West is a real good girl, but she will swear occasionally, and "charge 'round," and abuse her neighbors and get drunk, and lie and indulge inothersimiliar eccentricities. Lizzie was selected yester day as a proper person to make an appeal to, m the interest ol the city s depleted treasury, and the appeal was not made in vain, as she made arrangements to donate the sum often dollars at an early day, for the purpose of relieving our financial dis tress Alice White used languagethe like of which is never heard in the parlors ol well regulated families. When she pavs the fine for which she gave security yesterday, the conwration's Wealth will be increased to the amount oi ten dollars. Faxxy B.

This ancient and honorable order is now increasing with a rapidityunequaled in the history of any secret benevolent body ever introduced m this country, and at once gains the confidence and enlists the support ol the best business men m every commu nity where it has been established, it is based on the eternal truth that "The in terests of capital and labor are identical and deserve equal protection." JLhcic is attached to the order a system of mutual Uie insurance, conceived and conducted on the most just and liberal terms of any yet devised, whereby every member, upon attain ing the Third or Master JDegree. secures an insurance of 2,000 upon Jus life at so very small an outlay tliat none are too poor to obtain it, costing not more than one-third the amount charged by insurance companies, andnever demanding more than one dollar at any one time; having also the additional security of overy member ol the order interested in its payment, and bound by oath to see it uone.

To Typos. We were more tlian gratified yesterday by a visit to our editorial rooms of Mr. M. J lushes, ot isew lork City, lomierly ot Knoxville, Tenn. He is the inventor of the "Combination Stereotype Plate ' which promises to work a revolution 111 the print ing bus.ness and more especially in that branch best represented in the phrase "pat ent outside . ot. John writes that in his days there was no. end to the making of books, and the simplicity of Mr. Hughes' iirvpntipn taken with us cheapness opens to us a vista with no enil ol newspapers. 11 we have any objection to it, it is that much reading may render obsolete the faculty of thinking. lhe leading leatilre ol Mr. Jlmmcs' in vention in his method of attaching stereo type plates for the printing press. Every tj po has had opportunity to swear at tho ordinary stereotype plate mounted on wood, which swells with moisture and shrinks with heat, while the tacks or brads are clironieally loose. Mr. Hughes' substitute is perhaps best described as being the same, stereotype plate with.a vertical flange from the centre of the underside, securing it be tween two parallel pieces of "furniture," jnetal or wooden. The plate is thus fastly fastened for tlie press, while the furniture is'useful for al) other ordinary purp'oses in a printing office. The bearing this device will-have on the "patent outsFileV business and standing adyertiieinenls, wi 11 best bo appreciated by an inspection pf specipjens, As we understand, Mr. Hughes will giyo our country confercs an opportunity to see these for themselves, A subsidiary inven tion which struck us as quite valuable, was the "make" of his furniture. It is a com bination" of wood und metal, presenting an even metal surface on all sides, while the expense of solid metal is evaded by plug ging it with seasoned and chemically pre pared wood, thus lightening the article and its cost. We predict great success for our Knoxville inventor, as publishers and. printers become familiar with his achieve ments.

SHELBY COUNTY. From Thirty to Sixty Thousand Dollars' in County Warrants on tlie Market Without Authority. The Office of County Trustee in Trouble The Facts as they Appear in tlie Courts To-I)av.

This jnoniiug there appeared m the newspapers a notice headed. "Cautiou to the Public County Warrants," which article was sign ed by Mr. McDowcl, County Attorney. Jir. a. oouwani, uouniy inistoc, 15 at present ausere, irom tne city, ami it ap pears irom the county Attorney s cam that a number ol warrants which should liave been canceled by the Trustee have been pnta"aLi into circulation. The County Attorney ueneves me amount to be Irani thirty to lortv thousand il liars m warrants but the investigation as to the affairs in the Trustee's office is still progressiri";. These warrants had been paid by the county and suouid nave ueim canceled, ineir num- lter are on record in the County Court, and will be published as soon as possible so as to protect purchasers of county warrants. In the Second Chancery Court to-dav, Messrs.

The bill asks for an injunction restraining Pace from transferring-said warrants and for all other relief. AEPALLIXG MURDER. The Killing of A. W. Taylor in Mem. phis Fnll Accounts. The Memphis Appeal of the 5th says: "At an early hour last night Alexander W. Taylor, proprietor of a grocery on the cor ner of Overton and Third streets, was shot ind killed by John P. Grace, a noted char acter of this city. Justice Spf-linan being notified of the homicide, summoned a jury of inquest whose verdict was that Alexan der W. Taylor came to his death by a pistol- shot fired by the hand of John P. Grace. Two colored men, ihomas Pruden and George Bell, who reside at Xo. 52 Third street, witnessed the homicide and gave their evidence to the coroners jury, bo lar as we nave ueen able to learn, Urace had been patronizing layiors gro cery, and owed him eighteen dollars. Tay lor aroused theMndignation of Grace" by asking him to pay his bill, and the latter threatened more than once to kill his cred itor. Yesterday afternoon Grace entered Taylor's, grocery with fa unknown man, and wanted to get some articles on credit, which was refused by the proprietor bc Giuse of the debt due. This enraged Grace, and caused a difficulty, which ended by Tyalor seizir? a large faucet, with which ho dealt his malicious visitor a powerful blow on the head, felling him to the floor. Grace then left the grocery, and, having pro cured a pistol, in company with an elderly man, last night, again entered the grocery of xayior, wno, learingsome harm, and hear ing the threats, had armed himself. This time Grace wanted a plug of tobacco, and swore he would not pay his bill of eighteen dollars, unless Taylor would credit him, at the same time using violent and threaten ing language. Taylor gave him the tobac co, stating that he would not charge him anything as he would, pay foi nothing. At this Grace became enraged and again com menced using abusive words, aud Grace, drawing a pistol, rushed upon Taylor and fired. With the report of the pistol, Tay lor fell speechless to theiloor, where he died m less than pne minute, for the fatal bullet had entered his left breast near the heart, which was C oubtless touched by the leadenmissiie. xnemurdererandhis accom plice, who is unknown, then fled, and the former was arrested on Adanis street, near Third, by Sergeant Arratta, who placed him in the statiouhoiise. Grace was drunk, and had a fight with a man in the prison-cell. lie expressed a regret uixm being told he had killed Taylor, who came here not long ago from England, and has but onerAi" On nil". . . . , . .... in jiempins. lie nau inany friends and was a gentleman of a kind "dis position and unobtrusive manner. The old man with Grace presented a pistol and is guilty of aiding the murderer. Grace 'has an unenviable cliaracter, and will proli ably fare badly for this deed of crime.'' A girl,of the season comments thus on Mormonism: IIow absurd! four or five wives to one man, when the fact is, each woman in these times ought to have four or five husbands. It would take about that number to support me decently.
