--The people of Memphis have taken a stand in reference to the circulation of shinplasters, which others would do well to imitate. They have concluded that their issue by the city authorities would be calamitous, and that their importation from any other place is a nuisance, intolerable, and not to be borne. In Richmond, the citizens meekly submit to the infliction, of which they might relieve themselves by prompt, determined, decisive action.
