Concerning the "Weather.
The Monthly Weather Hevicic, issued by
the L. fc. bignal ollice, contains the lollow
nig items: Twelve well defined storms
traversed the territory of the United gtates
during the month of November. The
most violent of these, had. its origin in
Northern Georgia, on the lGth, advancing
rapidly to Wilmington, 2. C, and thence
along the Atlantic coast to the delta of the
St. Lawrence river. The path of this
stonn was marked by extreme barometie
depression, and heavy rain and snow, while
the wind readied a velocity ol lrom I0 to
CO miles an hour. The November temper
ature hiis been much lower than usual in
.New i,n?laini; anil generally lower over
the whole country east of the Rocky Moun
tains. Ihc variation lrom the mean
monthly temperature of this month for
many years; in the Ohio Valley and Ten
ncssee, has been very little 1:2' below,
The 1'hoto-lithographic map giving areas
of rainfall, shows a delkiency, as compared
with the mean amount lor November, m
the lower Missouri and upper Mississippi
Valleys, and the Lake regions: an excess
in Tennessee, Texas and New England.

A Consummation Devoutly to lie
The following is clipped from the Ecans-
zillc Courier ol Sunday:

existing between the Henderson Citv
Council and the St. Louis and Southeast
cm Railway have at length been compro

low, immediately after the contract was
agreed upon, left for St. Louis, and we un
derstand that the work will be commenced
at once and pushed forward to completion
with all possible rapidity.
Our Henderson reporter sends us intelli
gence that a telegram irom fraiiKiorl states
that the Jackson road bill will pass, as also
will the charter for the Evansvillc and Hen
derson Slioit Line railroad. These are two
separate and distinct enterprises. The
Short Line road means the connecting link
between the St. Louis and Southeastern
railroad and the Evansville, Henderson and
Nashville road, thereby abolishing the river
transfer of twelve miles, and removing the
nuisance that has so seriously damaged
trade and travel over this route.

A large Amount of Stolen Property
ior several weeks past, strong eflbrts
have been made to ferret out) and capture
the thieves who have been so extensively
engaged in stealing from private residences
in una eny ior some time.
Last Friday, a win-, keen-looking darkey,
about twenty-five years of age, and known
as Anuy lirown, was arrested by Detective
Puckctt, on the charge of larceny, and
locKcd up in jail. There were strong in
dications that Brown belonged to a gang of
tticives, and by means ol a sharp trick prac
ticed upon hnn yesterday, this lactwas lully
established, and the whereabouts of a large
quantity of stolen goods, was disclosed. An
express wagon was chartered and driven to
a house on Pearl street, between Spruce
and McLemore, occupied and owned
by Johnson Ridley, a colored man.
who uses a wooden leg m consequence
of his foot having been cut off some years
ago. Here were found several blankets, and
other bed clothing, four lace curtains (the
property ot Col. McClaunahaii,) blankets
stolen irom Dr. Atchison, sonic carpeting
belonging to Mrs. James 1. X'olk, knives,
forks and spoons stolen from the Maxwell,
clothing, and other articles.
Ridley was arrested, taken before Justice
Everett, and bound over to await cxamina-
at two o'clock to-morrow. Do says he
bought the articles from Andy Brown, and
tliat lie had no idea they were slolcn. Jle
claims that he got them before the cholera
came to Nashville. Ridley has lived in
this city for a number of years, and saws
wood for a living. He has a wife and six
children, and it is said one of liis boys
works in the Maxwell House barber shop,
Andy Brown says that Ridley didn't know
the articles were stolen.
In conversation with our reporter, Brown
confessed that there were three others con
nected with him In his thieving operations,
and gave their names, one of them being a
small boy, but as these liave not been ar
rested yet, their names are suppressed for
A TP.UNK FULL OF SIOXKY.
Brown claims that the stealing has I been
done under the leadership of one of the
trio still at liberty, and that he himself was
Jed into it against his will, tliat lie rctuscd
to take part in some of the plots which had
been arranged ami which lell through on
that account, and tliat lie declined -to take a
part in several others but which were car
ried out notwitlistanding.
He says the others wanted him to assist
them in robbing, last week, an old colored
woman who works for Mrs. rlunnner, on
Summer street, near the New Theatre.
The leader of the gang told Brown that this
old woman had been working for Mrs
l'lummcr for a great many years, at ten
dollars per month. That she had saved up
all her money and kept it in a trunk, with
a lot of money she had stolen, and that she
had a trunk lull, or nearly lull
which money could be got just as easy as
not. Brown was told that this old woman
kept the trunk in a back room in the up
per story ot Mrs. riummcrs house, and
that there was a pane of glass missing in
one of the windows, the aperture bein
covered by a niece of cloth. Brown was
told to visit the premises in the day time,
and sec uist how an entrance could be ef
fected through this window: but lie says
he refused to go into the arrangement pro
posed, and therefore didn't make the re-
conuoisancc spoken ol.
He admitted that fie assisted m robbing
the store of
EWIX & I'EXDLKTOX,
and said that an entrance was effected by
means of a ladder placed under one of the
rear windows, from which a pane was cut
out with a diamond. Our reporter visited
this store m company with the detectives,
and found that all but one ot the windows
in the rear of the building had heavy iron
bars running up and down, strongly braced
The window referred to also liad bars cov
ering the upper sash. The bars had form
erly extended all the way down to the low
er sill, where they were securely lastended,
but thev had been removed from the lower
part of the window in onlerto allow a mode
of egress in case the building should catch
fire and shut off escape to the inmates by
means of the lront door. Of course a new
pane had been put in the window in place
of the one removed, but an attache ot the
house stated that the missing pane had ev
idently been cut out.
Brown says tliat they duln t get any
thing from Mm x Pendleton s but cigars,
which were evenly divided between the
lour. lie soltl his share, and gave our re
porter the name of the purchaser, but this
is withheld for the present. He says lie
didn't assist in robbing
IIOLI.ISTEU'S t'lGAll STOKE,
but that he knows just how the work was
doHe, and the robbery was committed by
Ins three partners. He says that a couple
of velvet robes, stolen from Mr. McClanna-
han, fell to him and that lie sold them for
a dollar apiece.
In all probability the capture ot JJrown
will result in the breaking up of a gang of
thieves whose depredations were becomin:
really alarming. He was sent to jail in de
fault ot bond, and win be tried beiore Jus
tice Everett at the same tune liidley is.
He manifested a disposition yestenlay to
tell all he kucw about the matter, and was
cry bitter in denouncing one ol his asso
The case has been worked up by ruck-
etfs detectives, who have been on track of
the thieves for several weeks.

A COURT OF INQUIRY.
The .Police . Commissioners Becido
that Scrgreiint Xlgrnor Didn't Swear,
nnd that Ofliccr Arnold Didn't go to
Tlte Board of Police Commissioners met
yesterday for the purpose of investigating
certain charges preferred against Sergeant
Tignor and officer Arnold.
About the middle of last month a young
man by the name of McAnally struck a
child of Tiguor's with a rock, inflicting
quite a severe wound, the child being five
years, of age, while McAnally is a man
grown. AVlicn Tignor learned the facts he
called at the residence of Mrs. McAnally,
and told her that if her son re
mained in town he (Tignor) would
liave him arrested, using some excited ex
pressions at the same , time. The ytung
man did leave town, and charges were
made out against Tignor, charging him
with entering Mrs. McAnally's house and
using profane language. Mrs. McAnally,
Mrs. Smith, and Miss Hurley, neighbors of
Mrs. McAnally, were called as witnesses,
the latter swearing positively to the swear
ing. Commissioner Parkes, Capt. Yater,
Serg't. Burke, officers Hawkins, Arnold,
Davis, Schneider, and several others testi
fied that they had known Serg't. Tignor for
years and that they had never known of his
making use of an oath. The accused ac
knowledged that lie was very much excited
by finding that his child had been injured
in the manner described, but denied having
used profane language.
After hearing all the evidence, the Com
missioners endorsed upon the back of the
cluarges, the following:
"Ave liave examined the within case and
find the charges and specifications not sus
Joint charges against Sergeant Tignor
and officer Arnold were then read, Mr.
Ford Roddick being the principal witness
for the prosecution, charging that Tignor
and Arnold had been guilty of direlection
of duty in refusing him admittance to the
police office the day tliat officer Allison was
cut, to-wit: Nov. 19.
Mr. Reddick testified that upon the day
in question, lie had been attracted by the
crowd which collected in consequence of
the affray in Miiich officer Allison was se
vercly cut, and that lie proceeded
at once to the police station. He found
officer Maskcy at the foot of the stairs,
keeping the crowd back, but lie was at
once admitted by Maskey. He then went
up stairs, but wasniet at the door of the po
nce omce by oihcer Arnold, who refused to
admit him, saying he liad orders from
Serg't. lignor, who had charge of the of
fice, to admit no one. Reddick told Arnold
tliat lie was a member of the City Council
and was one of the Police Committee, but
was still refused admittance, although Mr.
Puckett, Mr. Clemmens and one of his
(Roddick's) brothers was admitted while
he was at the door. Upon being refused
the second time ho left the building.
In answer to a question by Commission
er Walsh, the witness stated that, as a city
omciai, ne considered that m case a riot
was raised, it -was his duty to proceed at
once to the police station.
Oflicer Arnold testified that lie had been
placed at the door by Sergeant Tignor with
orders to admit no one; that there was a
great crowd about the door, which he kept
back with difficulty, and tliat he could not
say whether the three men referred to by
Roddick had passed in or not. He said
tliat he had not been actuated by feelings
ot malice in keeping Reddick back, but did
so m pursuance ot orders.
Commissioner A alsli stated that he had
been refused admitance to the police office
at the time in question, and that he had
gone quietly away, believing that his room
was more desirable than his company.
Judge Duling testified that he had been
refused admittance under similar circum
stances, and tliat he saw no reason to be
The trial of oflicer Arnold, upon the
charge of entering saloons, and of sleeping
while on duty, was then proceeded with.
Mr. Reddick being the principal witness in
tins case also.
He testified that he had seen officers Ar
nold and Schneider come out of a saloon
smoking cigars, while on duty, liad seen
them enter the Commercial Hotel and sit
down while on duty, and that on the night
ol the od uist, lie knew of their sitting in
the Commercial-Hotel for twenty minutes,
cr half an hour, liart of which time officer
Arnold was asleep. In support of these
statements, he had Mr. Harlow, night clerk
ol the Commercial, and Mr. Butler, also an
attache ol that hotel, called.
Mr. Harlow testified that the aforesaid
ofheers and many others were in the habit
of coining into the hotel to look over there-
gistcr and warm themselves, especially on
cold, wet nighls; that the night of the M
was a wet night; that thev were not in the
hotel more than ten minutes, and that if
Arnold slept at all, he didn't sec him
Mr. Butlers testimony was substantially
the same as that ol Mr. Harlow.
In answer to a question by Commissioner
Parkes, as to why he had not had oflicer
Schneider arrested as well as Arnold, Mr
Reddick staled tliat in the violations of
duty above stated, Arnold always seemed
to take the lead and that lie thought it
would be all right anyhow, if Arnold

Tribute of Respect.
AVe fuul the following tribute in the
Colorado Citizen, of Columbus, Texas:
Mrs. Maggie L. Brown died m Columbus,
icxas, the fcth dav ol November, 187o. She
was the daughter of J. AV. and Friscilla Jt.
Judkins, and was born in Arkansas, from
which State she removed with her parents
in early childhood to Tennessee. She re
ceived a thorough education at Frank
lin University, Franklin, Tenu., where
she graduated with the highest honor.
The ;lst day of August, 1S59, she
was married to Dr. J. AV. Brown, of
Nashville, Tenu. They lived in Tennessee
and Mississippi until lSOO, when from the
latter State they moved to Columbus,
lexas. fche was the mother ot seven
children, two of whom preceded her to the
spirit woild. She was a kind and affection
ate wile and mother, aim endeavored as a
conscientious christian to discharge her
duties as such. She made a profession of
religion in early life, and united herself
with the Baptist Church in Franklin,
Tenn., and ever afterwards was strictly
conscientious in the discharge ol her relig
ious duties. She was liappily possessed of
those qualities ol mind and heart that arc
necessary to make up the true the good
woman, iiein somewhat distant towards
those with whom she was not well ac
quainted, she had to-be well known to be
appreciated, and the better she was known
the more she was liked. She was taken
sick with the A'cllow fever Saturday, Oct.
lb, lbJ. ller case progressed favorably
until Oct. 29, when she relapsed and died
on the Sth of November. She bore her af
flictions with resignation, and expressed
hersclt to her husband as not being afraid
to die. AVe tnist and believe she is now
enjoying that perfect happiness which is the
reward of the faithful christian. AVe tender
to the bereaved husband and motherless
children our heartfelt sympathy in this
their hour of affliction. A Fhiexd.

Jfegro Killed in Memphis.
The Memphis Avalanche of the 14th
tV shooting allray occmred last night at a
small grocery store on Ccurt street, near :
thec-rnerof Orleans, which resulted m
the instantaneous death of a negro man
named Milton Cartwright. Sometimesince
Cartwright and another negro named Bed
ford had a serious auarrcl about the man
ner in which the latter conducted himself
with the fonner's wife. Last night the two
met in the grocerv mentioned and renewed
theirquarrei. Uedloid notrcseninig-uuioii s

talk like he should, a friend of his named
Sam Hunt took it up, and in a few minutes
engaged in a fight with Milton. The lat
ter getting worsted in the fight ran off fol
lowed bva bullet from a pistol in the
baud of Sam. A few minutes later Milton
returned with a large stave in his hand,
with which he announced his intention of
beating Sam. The latter was inside the
groeerv at the I hue. and warned Milton not
to trouble liim. To this Milton replied
with blows from his stave. In the melee
which followed, Sam again drew his pistol
and fired, the bullet striking his adversary
in the breast near the
heart, killing him,
as said, instantly.
A Cart! from Blackburn.
To the Union and American:
As there have. Vippn sn mnnv f:ttp ntnla
ments published in Various newspapers con
cerning me and my trouble, and as I view
It, ior thts purpose of prejudicing the com
munity against my interest, I now propose
to give a tmthful version of the facts in the
case attending my arrest at Liberty, and
refer herein to good and substantial citizens
of DeKtilb county who will vouch for the
tnith of my assertions.
Upon the return of the verdict of the inn'
finding me guiltyi and before sentence was
passed upon me, I wa3 advised by various
parties to return to my home in DeKalb
county, where my family 'were very sick at
the time, and despondent at the recent loss
of a young daughter in addition to their
great solicitude and anxiety concerning the
result of my trial. Upon my return home
I made no attempt to conceal myself or
evade arrest. I was in the company of
Deputy United States Marshal Armstrong
every day at Liberty. On the morn
ing of my arrest, M. A. Stark, one of
the sureties on my bond communicated to
me at Liberty that Isaac AVhaley, another
surety, liad expressed to him his uneasi
ness as to his liability on the bond, and J
therefore in the presence of Deputy Ann
strong, M. C. and Thomas Arick aunouueed
my determination to immediately return to
Aasiivine and abide the result ol my trial
and thereby exonerate my sureties from
liability on the bond. This intention was
publicly avowed previous to any intimation
by any one of my probable arrest. I then
went to the Postollice to mail a letter, and
when coming out of the office I was met
by Armstrong anil in reply to his remark
"I want to see you a moment" I said "All
right." Armstrong then said lie had to arrest
me. 1 then again said "All right.-' Lie ask
ed me for my arms. I told him that I liad
none, and that he knew I never carried
them. Armstrong then summoned Stark
and young A'ick to assist in bringing me to
Nashville. They declined so doing. Ire
marked to them not to refuse, that 1 want
ed them to come with us. 1 told Armstron:
that if he would give me the capias
would come myself and that he need not
put himself to the trouble of going- to
Nashville if lie did not want to. Had 1 de
sired to escape I could liave
done so without any trouble. The guards
knew of my intention to come at all events.
Knowing as I do the status of the whole
case, 1 do wish that the truth could come.
I feel that his Hon. Judge Trigg would not
permit me to be confined in prison, and I
am now satisfied that it Ins Honor knew
the precise state of facts he would not allow
me to remain in jail. It is my conviction
that if any sin has been committed, or any
wrong done, the guilty ones leel it f o-day
The Banner' account of my arrest docs
me great injustice in stating that 1 was ar
rested at the mouth of "cocked pistols,"
thereby intimating that intimidation was
used, and was necessary to secure me; there
were no anus to be seen on the occasion,
and neither did I make use of any oaths,
as was stated m the Uunncr s account.
have not used an oath in six years. I deem
this cud necessary in onler to set myself
right before the public, and protect me from
the iniury always resulting Irom a mis
representation, or perversion of facts. The
statements herein made can be verified by
the gentlemen above named.
