Great extortion case. --The Memphis papers just now are redolent with the perfumes of a rich case of an attempt to extort money by extortion. The plaintiff is one Dr. Gilbert, a man of money, who loans his means for interest. The defendants are Mrs. Ellen Shaw, wife of Captain A. B. Shaw, and Chas Martin, who it appears was once a butcher, out of late has been chiefly occupied as the chaperon of Mrs. Shaw, her husband being an invalid.
