Whittle and BHss song-books are having a bit: sale in Memphis. Brownsville's cotton factory turns out four thousand yards oi sheetings per day, and its capacity will soon be increased to five thousand. Bacchus arid Bish, the two desperadoes who escaped fiom jail at Jonesboro last week, 'were recaptured by a posse of col ored man. Mayor Iluff, of Macon, Ga., has been in specting the Chattanooga Gasworks with a view to the erection of similar works in tlie former city. The tax-payers of Greene county are clubbing together, and propose testing the constitutionality of the dog law, by carrying it to the Supreme Court. The building now occupied by tbe Mem phis Chamber of Commerce and Cotton Exchange is to be torn down and one bet ter adapted for the purpese erected. IVasbiagtoa is entitled to tbe honor of having just instituted tbe nrst County Grange in East Tennessee, under the new Constitution for saehxrgauieatioBS. Dr. Iloemer, of Memphis, who is now in Europe, lias sent back to the German Casi no of that city an elegant banner, represent ing the national colors of Yaterlaad. Tlie merchants of Gadsden, Crockett county, hare sold out two stocks of goods this spring, aad are bow getting rid of taeir third. N ot very suggestive of hard times, this. Two Memphis amateurs have a pigeon sbooting match this week for $300; thirty single birds, twenty-one yards rise, eighty yards boundary; ten double birds, eighteen j'ards rise Mrs. Alicie Kennedy, wife of Tbos.

James Tltomp son killed Crockett Glimp in a rencounter growing out of depredations committed by lite latter"s stock. Under tlie new charter of Memphis, Al dermen and Councilman are not entitled to pay. yet a motion made by a Councilman not to pay such salaries was voted down, last week, which would leek as if tbe City Fatiiers intend collecting pay in violation of the charter. '1 ne distinguished gentlemen who have leen so anxious about Uie state of Judge K. E. Gilleuwaters' health though not, of course, with any view to the succession will be delighted to learn that be is well again, and has resumed his seat upon tbe br-nch. Tbe Memphis water-works sale has ended in a muddle which has produced a prolific crop of injunctions at the instigation of rival bondholders and would-be owners of Wolf river water. Memphis, the Ledger says, is not especially interested in tbe figlit, as the waterworks have so far proven a la mentable failure in every respect. After having interviewed several mem bers of Uie Legislature, the editor of tlie Loudon Times says be is not able to find "one who voted for tbe dog law, the jury law, tbe fence law, tbe law regulating con tracts, the squirrel law, the path law, tbe fell law, the partridge or poachers' law.'' , Perhaps a copy of the journals would be in order. Henry Manes, of Lauderdale county, in forms the Kimiey Kews that, lie sasaisd, last week, 2PJ pounds of wool from lour lambs. Tbe JVcwsays: "This wool fe, at tbe lowest calculation, worth fifty cents a pound, and as it costs next to nothing to raise the sheep, it js easy to see where tbe profit comes in. If tbe dog law is enforced sheep raising can be made profitable in this secliou.-' Query by the Chattanooga Time: "Is it possible that the fact that tbe construction of the Ciaeinnati Southern Railway may give Mr. Garrett, of the B. and O. K. It., 'an opportunity to break up the monopoly enjoyed by Mr. T. Scott, of tbe Peaatyiva nia Railroad, has anything to da -with the opposition to the Southern Bailread by the ' ( incimmti Commercial and some other parties in Cincinnati who are interested in I Mr. Scott's welfare." I The editor of the haltanooga Times has received a letter from Geo. G. G. j Dibreli, in which he states that, in obedi ence to a request of uV; Secretary of War, be has recommended John L. Goods! 1, of White county, for appointment as a cadet at West Point, vice 7. M. Alexander, of McMinn, rejected. lie received notice of the vacancy two weeks ago too late to convene a board of examiners, as tbe can didate must be at West Point Jane 19. Black marble has been discovered on Clulhowee Mountain, near the Little Ten nessee river, in Blount county. Tbe Maryeilte JlepobHccm says it lias been test ed by St. Louis experts, who pronounce it genuine and of a superior quality. Tbe vein is inexhaustible, and so situated that the Little Tenwssee can le used as a means of transportation. Steamboats ran up that far during tbe bnatipg seasons. .Messrs. J. M. Greer and J. C. M Bogle, of Afaryvilte, have purchased several hundred acres of the marble land and will com mence work immediately. Alamo lias had a gold seusation, of which the Crockett ( omtty Scntiml gives the following account: "A gentleman came vto town and told of the finding of from $4,tiU0 to $7,000 in gold ou Jibe McLemore farm about seven miles from Bells, a part of which farm lies in this and a part in Madison county. It seem3 that about $15, O00 in gold was buried by Mr. Suais Mc Lemore during the war, and he died with out telling any one of tbe buried treasure's locality. The amount it lotted to luve been found was uuder tha roots nf a cherry tree." We find the following arnouncentent in the Ihmboldt Journal: "TLe next meet ing of the West Tennessee Potuulogical Society will be held at Gadsden, on Sat urday,' the :2Mi instant . We are requested to Oate that all fruit growers, whether amateurs or graweis for profit, in West Tennessee, are rcrdiaUy invited to counect themselves with this association.

"Hog Law, or iw Hog Law," is the mo mentous issue that now agitates Knoxville. The mayorial back is up, and it has been decreed that every vagrant porker shall go to Uie public pen. Staub, the Press and Herald declares, is "about the last man in town to be reared from the performance of his duty" by such threats as this a sample of several aiHH.vmoos letters recently re ceived by ilis Honor: "Tbe first hog tlt will be pened up yr-u may look out for the burnins of your Dwelling house it is ima tireal to us if u!l jour tamely is in the house they will hv.e tbe same chance to get burned as tie burn will be don by night there is no time tpecined we will watch our own lime."

THE tXCITEMEXT IX THE PRIST 51 A UK ET. New York Bulletin, May 22. Yesterday there was a feverish and excited feeling in the trade, caused by the unsettled and demoralized condi tion of prints in jfTbbers' hands, which restricted tbe demand for other cotton productions. There appears to be & lack of confidence all round for the moment, and both jobbers andretailers are proceeding with tbe utmost caution in their purchases, and are only buying such goods as are actually required for "stocking up" purposes. Prints are nominally unchanged in agents' hands, and the best makes of light fancies and shirtings are held at 9 and 8c respectively, at which prices, however, sales are comparatively light. The example of H. B. Claflin & Co., was followed to-day by Kayne, Spring, Dale & Co., who offered a line of fancy prints under the Wabash ticket at the low figuic of 6i cents. This drive at tracted a good many buyers, but some disappointment was expressed because -more styles were not offered as waa ex pected from the announcement made. TTaited States Economist and Dry Golds Ite parter, May SS. Prints have been the objective point, and the market has been in one con tinual tremor throughout the week, as to each succeeding move. To some extent Messrs. H. B. Claflin & Co. have been doing a missionary business, although in the first instance their action was taken simply on account of the irregular prices the jobbers of the Western markets had made, though following each saoaessive move of H. B. C. & Co. There is no doubt that prices bave been of a most irregular character with the jobbers, ranging frbtn 6Jc. to 9c. for Standard Fancies, although if the goods for which the low prices have been made are carefully examined, they will be found to be anything but what are called desirable styles. In faot it is impossible to get choice work at anything less than regular prices, which are Sc. for shirting styles, and Sic. and 9c. for fancies, while some buyers will not touch the job priced goods under any circumstances. TliEOBACCO TRADE. Its Present hlrou Position and the Prospect of Prices Au ucoura? Iij;r Ilxlilbit fur Producers. New Yerk Tribune, May 22. Ti.e past year has been a most eventful one m the trade. Severe drouth last spring burnt up all tbe plants, and tbe dry weather continued so long as to prevent any possi bility of rep'.antiug. About the 1st oi June a large speculative demand began, peisous in the planting disincts having concluded there could not possibly be more th.ui one third of an average crop. At that time ''lugs' were held at fiom 41 to 5i cents, from which price they advanced rapidly, under speculative manipulation and con tinued complaints Horn tbe West, to 9 and 10i cents. Medium itat advanced, irom and G cents, until it readied and 14 cents, while good fine leaf and choice selections oh 124 and advanced from 8 aud 121 cents to 10 and 2o cents. This almost unprecedented rue in prices had two effects it checked consump tion and drove exporters from "the market, leaving tbe speculators (nearly all from the West) either the alternative of selling out to one another, or of putting up satisfactory margins with their t actors for the twrnoee of locking upobacco aud compelling a rise m value, importers and contractors were thus naturally arrayed against holders, both sides wailing to take advantage of ;iuy weakness. Tlte result was a very quiet lieriod during the winter, without any material change in prices. This contin ued until recently, when reports of frost through the tebacco belt, and serious injury to plants, had a stimulating effect, under which some choice lots were sold to ex porters, who were in great need of sup plies. A scarcity of plants this season will be much more serious titan ever before, as it has been almost impossible to procure seed in sufficient quantities to snppiy tlte demand, in fact, tltere has been so much difficulty in this reipect, tliat a leading commission house, anticipating tlte neces sity, during the winter, obtained as much fine seed as possible, aud forwarded it to tbe editors of Western papers, to be distrib uted among the planteis. Tlie stock of to bacco now lield in New York is more than double tbe quantity on hand at a corre sponding period for several years, but there are large orders to be filled by contractors, which have been extended from time to time, and which will consume a large por tion of tbe desirable grades. The priuc'ial portion of stock now ltere is of an undesir able and nondescript character, and there can be little doubt tliat really good grades in sound condition would bring even better prices than were obtained last tall. Tbe following table will give the prices of tobacco for the past two years: 1S 1ST4 Light Heavy. Llgfet. Heavy. Common to g'dlugs..lo ,12 11012X CeiBHHHl te Med.

The stock in the four imocipal ports is now 00,00:) lmgsheads, of which a Isrge portion is of too low grides for their purposes. Under these circumstances, tobacco may lie con sideied in a strong position, ami good j trices may reasonably be expected; but a quiet tone prevails, and may continue for the present, as toldeis evince no disposition to make any concession, while contractors are taking advantage of the extensions g:anted them. Ax incident in a new play is quoted as very French in its moralhv. A gentleman is in lore with an actress. He calls on the manager cf the theatre; lie pleads his love for an introduction. The lady's name is Marietta. "But," says the manager, "I saw you with a lady in your box last night a charming woman, my friend, a lovely woman, to whom you paid much attention." "That was my wife," tesponded the lover indignantly. "Do jou think I would be untrue to Mariette;:', Laiv correspondents from Europe unite in declaring Louie of Bavaria to be the handsomest prince of that grand divisionof the glotte, and go Into nurtures over his fair au8 fine blonde inouefciebe, bright cltest nut hair, interesting expression, and tbe heavenly suiile which lights his dreamy, poetic eyes. His photograph is deemed a necessary accompaniment of tbe albums of all tlte romantic young ladies on the Con tinent.

A ZSertbern Republican Orson ou the Recent Xasbvlllo Convention. Chicago Tribune, May 22. A convention of colored people is in session at .Nashville. Jit was called and has met to consider a foolish project the mass emigration or the negro pop illation of Tennessee to some other State. The delegates are beset by the agents of different railroads and inun. dated with placards and circulars tcsti fying to the wondrous excellence of the Boil of half-a-dozen localities, and tke.passionate longing of the whites of each of these sections to rcceivo their colored brethren, lend them money, give them food, and elect them to office. A large number of the dele gates are firmly impressed with the be lief that they can get free, transporta tion to any city in Missouri or Kansas, and will be presented, upon their ar rival at their destination, with 40 acres of land, a mule, and a year s rations This singular delusion can be traced to no one person. The neeroes them elves do not seem to know where they got the idea, but they refuse to be ar cued out of it. No friend of the American negro can favor any such wholesale movement as the Tennessee blacks propose. It is true that the rich bottom lands of the Mississippi can only be cultivated by the colored race, and have therefore been a fit field for immigration hither to; but they aro probably now amply stocked with labor. Streams of ne eroes have been flowinc into them for two years. We are informed that one third of the wholepopulation of-Hunts- vi lie, Ala., has emigrated west since 1873. The same story is told of other towns in Alabama and lieorgia. The very best thing for the netroes to do is to stay where they are. If they concentrate into two or three States and make them African Republics, they will simply deprive themselves of the advantages of the wealth, enterprise and culture of the white Southerners, and will lay the foundation for a variety of political evils, dangerous to the sta bility of our institutions, which need not be enumerated here. Moreover, they should remember the wise saying of "Poor Kiciiard" that "Three re moves are as bad as a fire." One often consumes the scanty savings of months of labor. The idea of moving from Tennessee to Kansas. or Missouri is es pecially foolish. Kansas is stricken by the grasshopper plague, and u notori ous for political corruption. Missouri is much more deeply sunk in Bourbon- ism than Tennessee is. In the latter State, there is very little trouble be tween whites and blacks. If the latter persevere, do honest work, and stay where thev are instead of chasing a will-o'-the-wisp around the country, they will ere long obtain every needed right and privilege, not under the harsh - V ii. , , p directions oi ine law, out irom an en lightened public opinion. POLITICAL, PURITANISM! IS OHIO. Cincinnati Commercial. If the Republican party is to be run and regulated according to the New England village notions, there ii an end of its power in the State and in fluence in the nation. There is no ob jection, of which we bave information, to the repentance of sins by any citi zen, provided he repents his own sins. It is necessary, however, to place some restrictions upon the capacity which our fellow-citizens have to get them selves into trouble about the sins of their neighbors. This is a pretty large country, and there is room in Ohio for several popular movements without alarming friction. The pretension of the Democracy that the degree of social freedom demanded by the people at large is dependent upon the success of their political organization, should be made as absurd in the popular appre hension as it is when we weigh the realities. If there is to be a candidate ran for Governor of Ohio on the plat form that we shall have no fires in our houses on the Sabbath day, and drink no malt liquors outside our own doors, let us understand it. THE SPRING FASHIONS IX PARIS. As to tlte spring fashions, they are now like the trees, in full bloom. Tlte latest and best-worn combination of colors at present is sahl to be black and white. A superb evening toilet, for instance, which was lately made by tbe celebrated Lafer riere, was composed of black velvet with au overdress and drapery of dead white surah. Large parasols of black silk bor dered with a single band of Valenciennes insertion and a ruffle of wide Valenciennes lace are very fashionable. In bonnets, tlte wild profusion of flowers, which were the rage at the beginning of the season, have been replaced in some instances by a single supero feather, enrving en tiiely lound the outside of tlte hat, the inside of the brim of which is filled in with a rouleau either of velvet or of surah, to match the thus oi the feather. These bonnets are of course very costly, such long plumes being extremely expensive. In "flowers the blended field flowers continue to be much in vogue, but the highest fashion lias decreed that roses are not to be worn cn bonnets anv longer. They are worn nevertheless, tbe dictates of La Mode to the contrary notwitlistanding. Overskirts in full toilet are replaced by draperied scarfs crossing tlte front of the dress. The combination of plaids with plain materials in suit continues to be very eflective, and will be still more popular when the suits in wash material for sum mer wear are brought out. Oxford linens in combinations of stripes and solid colors will be much worn this summer, and so, also, will be embroidered cambrics. White needtework upon dark blue and ecru is tlie favorite style in this las-. TnE following are said to be infallible signs of married couples. If you see a lady drop her glove, and a gentleman by tlie side of her kindly telling her to pick it up, you need not hesitate in forming your opinion; or if you meet a couple in the field, tlie gentlemau twenty yards in advance of the lady, wlio, perhaps, is getting over a stile with difficulty or plucking her way through a muddy patch; or. if you see a lady whose beauty and accomplishments attract tlte at tention of every gentleman in the room but one, you can bave no difficulty in deter mining their relationship to each other tlte one is her husband. $5,000 Reward!
