All the character, throughout the evening, were represented by inch totally dissimilar faces, voices, and general aspects and the changes were made with such marvelous rapidity, tbat the audinnce was continually surprieed, arid for the most part kept in coovuleious of laughter by tbe remarkable ability of the man who could so readily assume all these varied phases of humanity and so successfully impersonate 'tbuta.

Wkere the' Detd Body of ICatle Me Cormlck Lay It State for Twenty-Four. Iloan. Tae Shalfer Csjaat Dad-Haa, With aa Aeeatata DeertBM of Uha HaaVe, In alt civilized lands there exists a respect for the dead, and the duet of a pauper ia, aa a general role, properly cared for by tbe authorities, but the exception to this rule is, we regret to aav, Shelby county On Wednesday evening last the dead body of the unfortunate girl, Katie McCormick, who fell a victim to the malpractice of the abortionist, w&s taken charge of by the county undertaker and removed from the boarding-house of .Mrs. Widrig, on the corner of Winchester aad Second streets, to a stable, on Union et'eet, near'Seeoud, which stable is occupied by the county undertaker and is tbe Shelby county morgne for paapers. Tbe county undertaker, Mr. Walsh, was prohibited from interring tbe remains up to 10 o'clock on yesterday, as it was expected that a post mortem examination' would be had, but this examination was abandoned. Our report er; late yesterday afternoon, was informed that thu reman o' the unfortunate girl had not yet been buried, but were in the stable in a rough bet or pauper's cofSu. Being of arj investigating turn of mind, our representative, at half-past six o'clock last evening, visited the stable above mentioned and found it filled with horses, hacks and wagons. Accosting a negro and exprewing bis deire to see the body of tbe dead girl, our reporter was invited to light a match and to follow tbe negro. The stiible was in darkness, but bv the lisht of tbe tua'ch cur man kept clear of the heels of tbe horses' stalled on either side, and after windiug around wagons ho arrived at the back, part of the table, where wagon, sawduivt and other tilings were stored. "Here is the box." snid 'the black guide. At this moment the match weot out, and our reporter lit another. Tne negro pulled tbe lid of the box aside, and there lay . the body of Eatie McCormicc in a shroud; her hair bad tumbled down and lay in disorder on the bottom of the box. "When are yon going to bury berT" aakel our man. "At three o'clock' to-morrow," was the reply, "tihe will be buried a a pauper, and wilt be taken out in a wagon." Our uiso lit another match, looked around over this . Shelby- county morgue, where in darkness, Gltb and un- watched the pauper dead are left pre paratory to interment. It was a horrible 1 ght and well calculated to produce uo pleasant reflections. OrtUK AKRAKUEMIKT3 MiDB KOK Br HI it, Leaving this stable for live horse and detd paupers our representative hurried up town, and meeting Captain George W. Miller, of the Cut-Off saloon, oo Madiaen street, stated the condition of things, aad it was at once resolved'that th. dead girl should have a decent burial. Visiting Messrs. Hoist Bro , the under takers, arraniements were made for a coffin and an interment at Elm wood Cemetery more in , accordance with Christian and humane usages than tbat intended ander tbe pauper system. A visit to No. 99 Main street, the residence of Coroner,. Spelman, was then made, anl an order was obtained oo nndertaker Walsh to turn tbe remains over to Messrs. Hoist ft Bro. for interment. Tbe stable was again visited and tfie box carried trim the back part of tbe stable to the office in front by undertaker Walsh, dpt. G. W. aliller and two negroes, our mtn carrying a candle, leeding tbe strange and weird procession, all of which presented a picture worthy of the brush of Romorandt. The body was lifted tenderly from tbe box into the collio and was conveyed to the office of Hoist A Bro., on Main street. There it was te-arracged.jhe sawdust was carefully brushed from the hair, face and clothing of the dead, and the lid of the coffin was fastened down on Katie McCormick. Messrs. Hoist ft Bro. were quite liberal as lo tbe matter of interment, our rep reseotative at)4 Captain Miller becoming responsible for the amount; and tbe interment will take , place this afternoon. Oo Wednesday afternpon Mrs. McCormick; mother of the dead girl, kit ibe city and returned to Humboldt, seem ingly not feeling any more ' interest in the dead and having no desire to pay the last ead.tribute to the ashes of her daughter. Of ucb conduct we do not feel at liberty to express any opinion, but It was clear tbat Mrs. McCormick was more troubled about' tbe publicity giveu to the aSair than about tbe fute of bcr er ring a:id unfortunate child. The Humboldt shoemaker, Gtorge Burgc', did .not put in an appearance here to aid aud, asqiat iu ditmitlj inter-riug the remains of tbe girl vthogu ruin he.httd. wrought Iu justice tu Couuty Undertaker Walab. e mut state tbat be placed the body whero all other bodies of papers are placed preparatory to iu-termeut. and would have buried the girl ycetcrday but wns prevented from so do- ing by the snow storm and rains. The baqkpart 'bf the stable has been and is the Shelby county, morgue, and there tbe pauper dead roet peaeetully amid old wagons, saw d ott, horses and stable boys, onwatcbed and uncarod for at night, but awaiting the wagon next day, to be car- rind out to potter'e field.

WaodtawII. Thii distinguished lady and party ar rived last night unannounced and took rooms at the Peabody Hotel. She will deliver a lecture at tbe Memphis Theater Sunday evening on "The Human Body, the Temple of God, and the True and False Socially." That Mrs. Wood-hull is a brilliant, gifted woman, capable of entertaining the most intelligent audiences, none will deny. She holds advanced views aud . haa said some bold things quite startling to sedate people. She claims, however, that she has been greatly misrepresented and is makinz this extnnsive lecture tour to set herself right before the public on account more especially of her young daughter. AU she aska is a hearing, and we have bo doubt but she will have a crowded house Sunday night. We select a few newspaper notices of her, selected at random. The Chicago Tribune, Saturday, October 16, 1875, said: The McCormick Hall was crowded to repletion last evening te hear Mrs. Woodhull lecture. The audieoce- was largely composed of women. The lady appeared on the rostrum about a quarter past 8 o'clock, dressed in a plain black dress, white collar and cuffs, a bunch of roses oo her breast being all the effort at ornamentation. The Buffalo (N. Y.) Courier, Decem ber 6, 1875. said: Victoria C. Woodhull lectured at St. James' flail last evening on "Tbe True and raise hoctety, and notwithstanding the very disagreeable weutlier, the hall was filled with a highiy intelligent audience. With such audiences as that of last evening, through an entite season, it must be evident tu the casual observer that "advanced ideas," when advocated boldly, are sometime necuniarilr Drofit- able. Mrs. Woodhull ha been roundly abused; but the Americas people are the most generons people in tbe world, and the feeling is gaining that she has been misrepresented and has been made to suffer utiuecestturily. ' Mrs. Woodbnll has persuaive eloquence, a fiery energy and earnestness wboee genuineness cannot be questioned. She i a woman of great ability, and states her views with siugulur clearness and force. Jbe following notice recently appeared in tho Washington Chronicle: A short time siuce a writer, well known to many readers, bad a conversation with Mrs. T.lizabcth Cady Sttuton. in which interview the lady is reported to have expressed hersolt in tbe following char acteristic terms: "Theodore Tilton need not have shirked an acknowledgment of his association with Mrs. Woodhull. Victoria Woodhull' s acquaintance would be refining to any man. . In her own character and person there 'is oever anything but refinement in word or movement. She has a beautiful face tbe ideal of spirituality. Victoria Woodhull has done a work for woman that none of os conld have done. She has faced and dared men to call her tbe name that make woman shndder, while she checked principle, like medicine, down their throats.
