Charleston, S. Dec 22.An event
of more than ordinary interest in EDis
copal religious circles occurred here
yesterday. It was the ordination by
Bishop Howe to the deaconate of the of
Rev. E. N, Holtings, a young Colored
theological student. Holtings is the
second Colored man who hastaken holy
orders in the Diocese of Charleston.
He is 33 years old, was born in Charles
ton, and educated at the Saxon School
for Freedrnen, established here by
Northern philanthropists at the close f
the war. The ordination services took
place at St. Mark's, the Colored Episco
pal Church of the city, the clergymen
participating being Bishop Howe and
the Rev. Doche, A. Porter, and J. V.
Welch, white, and J. H. M. Pollard, Col
ored. There was only a sprinkling of
white persons present.
'I he ordination bears directly upon
the color war that has been raging in
this diocese for the last ten 3 ears. This
war led two years ago to the withdrawal
from the diocese convention of most of
the prominent clergymen. The diffi
culty was temporary bridged over, but
the fight is expected to be renewed at
the convention of 1889. The ordination
of Mr. Holtings is regarded as a declara
tion by the clerical wing that they in
tend to remain steadfast for the rights
of Colored brethren.
An Old Abolitionist Dead.

and was associated with William Lloyd
Garrison in establishing the Liberator
in 1831, He was the counsel for the de
fense of Sims, Anthony Burns and other
fugitive slaves. He prepared the argu
ments and assisted by his counsel and
suggestion at the trial of John Brown.

A COSTLY COFFIN.
The Magnificent" Manner
Which a Colored Lady
Mrs. Kate Teagle was Interre d.
Philadelphia, Dec. 26.The body of
Mrs. Kate Teagle, wife of West Chester's
famous Colored doctor was interred at
that place this morning with more pomp
than has atteeded any recent funeral
in this locality. Mrs. Teagle died of
a complication of disorders at midnight
last Wednesday. By an arrangement
made before her death she was to-day
laid out in a coffin which she hadthem
ordered and inspected herself, and
which will cost her wealthy husband
the sum of $1,000. In appearance it is
an exact reproduction of the casket in
which the body of the late Samuel J.
Tilden was incased, and it comes from
the same manufactory. The wood from
which it is made is the very finest cedar
that could be procured, heavily lined
with highly tested copper. The trim
mings are of the
1 finest satin, and the
pillow on which the dead woman's head
rests is hand embroidered.
All the other arrangements for the
funeral are upon a similar scale. The
funeral director was given explicit in
structions to spare no expense, and he
hasobeved instructions. Fifty of the
finest carriages have been engaged and
a sumptuous dinner provided for those
who come from a distance.
Mrs. Teagle was born a slave, but befrom
came free by the operations of the
emanicipation proclamation and came
North shortly thereafter. She waB a
woman of more than ordinary capacity,
and borrowing money went into the
millinery business. With her savings
she bought up real estate, which in
creased value and finally made her
neb. In her own right she was worth
about $100,000 when she died. Dr.
Teagle, whom she married twenty years
ago, obtained a large practice as a root
and herb doctor, and also amassed con
siderable money. To day he has an ex

church in Coffey county, this state, a few
days since, a man who was disturbing
public worship was killed by the preacher
in charge of the church. The names of
the parties cannot yet be learned. For
some time trouble has existed in the
church, one faction favoring the reten
tion of the present pastor, and the other
favoring his dismissal, 'the faction
fight grew very bitter, and the trouble
reached a climax last Sunday, -when the
pastoi's friends voted him in for another
year. One of the members most bitterly
opposed to the pastor, approached the
pulpit whe-ie the reverend gentleman
was sitting, and engqged in conversation
with him, This became very much ex
cited, and finally the member raised hies
hand and dealt the preacher a sharp blow
on the cheek. The pastor remonstrated
with his assailent, but he struck the
preacher again ane again, accompanying
the blows wiih a profusion of vile
epithets, and also spitting in the minis
ter's face. The minister drew his knife
and stabbed his assailant repeatedly.
Women screamed, and the men looked
o* aghast, while the unfortunate man
fell down in the pulpit and died. Tho
friends of the minister hurried him ofl,
and it iB reported that he hasfledthe
country. Coffey county is ia a remote
