Death at Fort iUbtou. We received a letter yesterday from Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, requesting us to mention the fact tliat James T. Trinard was killed in that place, on Cluistllias day, by Henry Eilfert. Then; are no particulars given, but, from the tone of the letter, we suppose the deceased has brothers living in this State.

Turnpike roads are cninin? nn In Hin market, and prices are much more satisfac tory man lor several months past. First class turnpikes, with full compliment of mile posts, and bridges in good repair, are in demand. We quote: Col. Gibbs, Secretary of State, rpnnrts the sale last week of the Borne and Car thago pike to John A. Fitc, at $1,000. Also the Columbia Central pike to Gen. Tolk, et al, at 5,000. New Pavements, We are glad to notice tliat new pave ments are supplanting in many places, the old man-traps which have disgraced our city. The old pavement is being removed on the west siue oi Cherry, between Clmrcli and Union, to give place to a composition pavement, which seems to give good satis faction and is a great improvement upon the former condition of things in thaflocal ity.

Soiree Daiizautc. A large assembly were in attendance at McChire's Hall last night to witness the exhibition of Miss Eliza Goodwin's pupils in the polite art. Her classes are large, and the manrcr in which the little ones acquitted themselves, in the different fancy dances, was sufficient to show the aire and attention bestowed upon them by that ex cellent teacher. She is one of our most successful educators m the terpsichoreafi art, aud her parties, given for the pleasure of the children, are always enjoyable. Colore! Excursion to Henderson, Kentucky. Wc understand there is to be a grand re union of colored Sunday Schools froni Cairo, 111., Evausville, Intl., and other jilacets, to be held at Henderson, Ivy., on Wednesday, New Year's eve.

An excursion train from this city will leave at '2 o'clock to-morrow morning, on the St. Louis and Southeastern road, for Hender son. Tickets am be secured to-day at the Harding House. Either a Lost Its or a X.ot Master. A gentleman riding down town in a College-street csr, last night, observed a dog following that richly caparisoned vehicle, and making occasional attempts to get on. He finally railed the driver's attention to the fact, and asked him why the dog acted so, to which Jehu replied that he did not know, but that he thought the dog was mad, as lie had followed him for two found trips, and that he had succeeded, thus far, in keeping him off the car. The gentleman then suggested that probably the dog's master had taken passage on the car, aud that he had left it without the dog seeing him. No doubt this was the case. ItecUIess Driving1. About two o'clock Sunday afternoon, a barouche in which were seated tliree ladies and a little girl dashed down Cherry street going north. Opposite Dr. Schifl's house, some children belonging to Mrs. Frasch were crossing the street, when fhey were violently tluown down by the barouche, one of them, a little girl, having her arm broken. Tho occupants of the vehicle paid no attention to the cries of the children,but were driven rapidly away. Thus far the police have been unable to get the number of the hack or the name of the driver. Tie Catholic World. We are in receipt of the January num ber, from the Catholic Publication Society, New York. It opens with the lirst of a series of philosophical articles on the Prin ciples of Ileal Being. We note interesting biographical sketches of Archbishop Spald ing, Madame do Stael, and Father Sebas tian Bale, the Jesuit pioneer of the North west the latter being a noteworthy con tribution to the early history of the Conti nent. Of stories, sketches, poetry, etc., there is the full supply for holiday reading. Peihaps the most valuable article however, is the well-digested editorial review of the developments of the pregnant year 1S73, now rapidly closing. This article alone is worth the price of the number. For sale by D. N. Neylan, Public Square. Fire Tills lornliir. The alarm of fire about half past one o'clock this morning was caused by the burning of McFarland's lumber yard, on Cherry street, below Cedar. The fire originated in a stable on the premises, and was undoubtedly the work of an incendia ry. The stable was destroyed, together with a small quantity of lumber. We are unable to ascertain the amount of loss, which, doubtless, would have been heavy but for the efficient service rendered by the engine from the Square, the timely arrival of which pre vented the spread of the flames. The frequent alarms of late would lead to the impression that we have in our midst a band of incendiaries, intent upon the di structionjof the property of our citizens, and it behooves our police to exorcise the ut most vigilance.

Some mothers arc so care less aud lazy. "The evidence shows that he sot up with ll'er night after night, and they siiuose bands and talked soft, and I think she ought to have about $23 damages," remarked a Kan sas judge to a jury in a breach of promise suit which was being tried before him. An old Scotch lady liad an evening party, where a. young man was present who was about to ieave for an appointment in China. As he was exceedingly extravagant in his conversation about himself, the old lady said when he was leaving: "Tak' gude care o' yoursel' when yearenwa'; for. mind ye, they cat puppies in Chcua!'' itrcfirinfti'. "A hard, iiendish laugh, scornful ar.d pit iless, forced its passage from his throat, through the lips that curled in mockery at her appeal; she covered her despairing face, and a gust and whirlwind of sorrowing agony burst forth in her irresistible tears," as Ave are told by the talented author of a late novel. The local of the St. Louis Journal found "the day we celeb-ate," a very productive day. Thus: Christmas was a funny day. The street cars killed a boy, a piece of plank wiped a wife out of existence, a slick surface of ice took in a young ma::, powder perforated tho eye of another, egg-nog shot hundreds in the neck, and the ancient im plement of warfare, the "'bunch of fives," met many a one, half way and drew tile claret; Here's a sample of Yoling America: "A good mother was trying to explain to a young hopeful the other-day about fighting against the devil. After telling the little feilow who the devil was, and how hard he was successfully to resist, he turned cround and said, "Mamma, I'd be scared at the old devil, but if I was to come across one of the little devils I'd knock the stuffirg out of him."

' The Nashville Union and American, in a recent issue, speaks in regard to a cor rection in this paper of a blunder made by an intelligent compositor in spelling "bows"' "beaux," and remarks disparaging ly that the "superior cussedness" of the aforesaid "I.

Sunday last, ths 2bth inst., the day ap pointed by the Catholic Church as .1 feast in commemoration of the innocent cluldren barbarously slaughtered by commind of llerod (see Matthew n, lo-lb,) was select ed for the distribution of the Christmas premiums to the scholars of St. Marys Sun day School.

Bishop, addressed the congregation and children in language plain and simple direct from heart, to heart. At the con clusion of the address, some three hundred premiums were distributed by the Bishop, each child receiving something as a me mento of the occasion. The cnt re list would be too long for publication in our columns, but we may give the names of those found worthy of the most valuable of the prizes on account oi their punctuality, diligence and good conduct. Fine gold medals, with inscription, were giren to Masters Jos. Thos. Foley, Francis P. Fitz williams, Martin Cone, Daniel S. Writes man, Miss Mary Caraher, and Miss Katie Donovan.

May they all live and die happy! Cruelty to Animals. Attention is frequently called to acts of cruelty practiced in this city, upon dumb animals, but more especially hors;s and mules. Any one passing along our streets cannot have failed to see the harsh treatment hack horses receive from their drivers, who are seldom the owners of the teams they drive, and rarely stay in the employment of one man for any length of time. Wc publish the law in relation to this matter, hoping that some good may result therefrom: "If any person cruelly beat, torture, or use any horse, ox, dog, or other animal in which individuals may have aproperty, whe her his own, or a third person's, he shall forfeit S50 for each offence, lo any pcrson who will sue therefor. "Any person who in any way d'ufigures such an animal not his own, so as not to" fall within the provisions of the- preceding section, shall forfeit $25 for each ofl'jnce, to any person who shall sue therefor. "It is the duty of Justices of the Peace, Sheriffs and Constables, to see tliat the foregoing provisions cf law for the protec tion of animals are carried out; and in such cases, the officer bringing the offender to justice is entitled, besides his legal costs, to onelialf the penalty, tho other hrlftogo into the treasury of the county."' t turn Sunday's Diazes. Two fires occurred Sunday night. About half past six o'clock a stable belonging to 3Irs. Thornton ami situated in rear of Pettit's drug store, South Cherry stieet,was discovered to be in flames and was des troyed in a few moments. An hour later, the stable of B. J. Geiger, containing a horse and buggy, cow and calf, anight fire. The animals were taken out at once, and the fire was checked before the stable was consumed. It was situated on Ash street between College and 'Cherry. The loss is about $100, covered by insur ance.

A witness testified that Nickens kept following Harrison around, Christmas day, insisting that he was as good as Harrison, notwithstanding his color, and tliat finally, in order to get rid of him, Harrison Lauded Sickens one on the left cheek, causing the 'latter to see all the stars, comets and other planets that frere visible, at tlw time. Harrison was discharged irom custody. Mollfe Wilson had been ch unk aud dis orderly.

Eiiza Carter, ,c8l6'red; i3 bent iipon uevel: oping her muscle, and has entered upon a regular course of training, with this end in view. She had her hours for walking, her hours for running, her hours for exercising with dumb-bells and sand bags, and her hours for throwing stones. It was in con sequence of indulging in the last named exercise yesterday tliat she was arrest ed, as, through a little oversight on her part, she hurled her rocks fairly at a house occupied by a, neighbor with whom, she was not ira the iiiost pleas ant terms imaginable. To be sure, it was purely accidental, but if Eliza had notified said neighbor of her intention to throw rocks in that particular direction, the house could have been moved, and all unpleasant results availed. For thus failing to notify the neighbor oi'hcr interitioH, the .muscular Eliza was heavily fined. Our readers will be surprised as well as pained to learn that Sidney Smith was brought up in our Police Court yesterday, on the charge of dnuikeucss. The case was dismissed. Ninth Ward Daptist Mission Sunday School. Jt Avas our pleasure last night to be -one of. the" great throng avLo were" present to witness the festivities of this interesting and rapidly growing school which is located on Jefferson street, near Belleville street, North Nashville, and is under the superin tendence of Mr. A.

Then came the song, "Hark! hark! my soul,-" after Avhicli auother charade, a song, and the tableau of Home, Sweet Home, in two scenes. This Avas followed by a dialogue, and afterwards the songs "Toiling on" and "Merry, mer ry Christmas." Superintendent Smith then announced tliat as the tableaux had been so cordially received, it had been proposed to exhibit another, "The Milk in the Co coanut," and upon raising the cur tain, there Avere displayed a large number of baskets filled Avith pack ages for the children. The committee in charge then commenced the work of distribution, and the hearts of the little ones Avere made glad. The exercises closed with the song "Good Night! God Bless You." John Campbell led in the singing, and has the young folks under complete control and training. The festival alto gether passed off in the most agreeable manner to all concerned. "Ontilc" Ticket Agents. At a meeting of Southern railroad linos, held at the MaxAvcll House,Dec. 10, to cor rect abuses in the passenger seirice in the South, the following resolution Avas adopted: Resolved, "That in view of the injury to the passenger business of the railroad com panies Ave represent, by the sale of tickets in the hands of outside agents, Avhicli Ave regard as a fruitful cause of loss of revenue, hereby agree that avc will Avithdraw from the hands of all outside agents all tickets of our issue, and that no tickets of any is nn fiveont. our own. shall be allowed to be sold in any of the ticket offices on our re spective roads. We also, lor ourselves and for our respeeti-e companies, agree, and bind ourselves to maintain rates as cs!al lished by theSliort Line, Avithout any rc- Viofn nr nut nf rntpi nC nnv kind, and AVfi jiledge ourselves not to allow any tickets, be sent bv mail, express or otherwise, to any one oil of our roads."

A sad accident befel M:j-,im- Myers yeiel!(iaj while winking upon the roof or; that gdtliic cottage' lid lias been erecting for Capt. Bob Pa'ttarp4's jjpj; wild cat; II seems" tliat lit. Mjers, with thrfc reHles?, ness so characteristic of him, ascended to the roof of the cottage Avithout having se cured his ladder properly, and just sis he reached the top round, the ladder slipped and he avrs precipitated to the ground. Fortunately no boiies Avere broken, but the unfortunate unm was bruised considerably. In this connection, Wc feel called upon to do Mr. Myers justice with reference to a subject upon, which he feels deeply Mr. Myers oatus a dog fanious for bis abilities as a fighter. In fact, Mr. Myers' uog has 'several private graveyards where he buries such canines as fall victims to his prowess, and these graveyards are constantly being enlai-ged. In the meantime the fame of Mr. Myers' dog has spread apace over the laud until there is no other dog in Nasli ville so widely known aud generally re spected as Mr. Myers' dog. Koun? two montlis since it became ueces saryfor a reporter coiiuec'tcd with this paper to ma"ke mention of Mr. Myers' dog, Avhicli duty he performed in his usual cir cumspect and cautious manner. He alluded briefly to the owner of Mr. Mytws' dog, touching lightly upon that gentleman's distinguishing trails of character. He then refeirtd tbti conflict which Mr. Myers' dog had liad a few days previous Avillt ail un known canine, the property of oWMr. Vincent, closing his scholarly production with a graphic and blood-curdling descrip tion of the incidents connected Avith his own introduction to Mr. Myers' dog. In the beginning of said scholarly pro duction, the reporter alluded, in a pathetic manner, (and with Avords he searched two dictionaries through to find) to the gloom mid despondency Avhicli possessed him in cSrisedudnce of frequent duns received from his unreasonable Avash-Woman, his unfortunate landlady and his rapacious tailor. He also committed the gricvious error of calling Mr. Myers' dog "Tigc"' in stead of "Joe," by Avhicli latter name he Avas cliristened. Noat to the point: Mr. Myers' has been laboring under the delusion that onr re porter charged hiin with being indebted to' his AvashAVomati, landlady and tailor, and in order to establish the falsity of such base cliarge,has beencollecting affidavits setting forth that he owes none of the persons in dicated. He has also taken pain3 to set the editors of tills "valuable and Avidely circulating,"' etc, rlg'ut Avith regard to the name of his dog, for, to use the expressive languago of Mr. Myers lumsclf, he "wouldn't have a sick kitten by the name of "Tige." Tnis explanation is made in justice to Mr. Myers, and the more readily as the Avriter is liable to meet Mr. Myers' dog at any moment. Mnjrazines.

The following is a copy of a painter's bill for Avork done in a Scotch church. It is needless to remark that the building must have been sadly out of repair. Here is the receipted claim as wc found it, no matter where: "To filling up a chink in the Red Sea, and repairing the damages of Pluutiah's host. "To a new pair of liands for Daniel in the lion's den, aud a new set of teeth for the lioness. 'To repairing Nebuchadnezzar's beard. "To cleaning the whale's belly, -arnish-ing Jonah's face, anil mending his left arm. 'To a new skirt for Joseph's garment. 'To a sheet anchor, a jury mast, and a Ion:; boat for Noah's ark. "To giviug a blush to the cheek of Eve on presenting the apple to Adam. 'To painting a new city in the land of Nod. "To clearing the Garden of Eden after Adam's expulsion. "To making a bridle for the Samaritan's horse, and mending one of his legs. "To putting a new handle to Moses' bas ket and fitting bulrushes. "To adding more fuel to the lire of Ne buchadnezzar's furnace. "Rec'd payment, D. Z." "Drtibblcs." The folloAving is clipped from the Car mel, (III.)
