THE LATE Ancnuisnor SPALDING -
Not only the members of the Romun
Catholic Church, but every one who has
any knowledge of the life and character
of Archbishop Spalding, have been
grieved at the'intelligence of his death,
in Baltimore, on Wednesday afternoon
hutt, the 7th instant. Tn the course of
more than forty years' service in the Ro?
man Catholic faith, first as a priest in
the Western oouutry, und gradually on?
ward through more elevated positions,
nntil he was placed at the head of the
Senior Archdiocese of tho United Staten,
he bore a noble reputation as a cleric,
and won the honorablo esteem of the
world. With his own religious fold he
held a place close to tho hearts of thou?
sands, and men who were widely sepa?
rated from him in the tenets of his faith
honored him for his upright character,
Christian devotion and extended learn?
ing. No prelate in the American Church
stood higher, and there was a general
belief that if any of the vacant seats in
the Sacred College were to be allotted on
this Hide of the Atlantic, Archbishop
Spalding would be the first to receive a
"THE FASTEST TIME ON RECORD."-An
old ex-uttachee of thu South Carolina
Railroad addressed us the following note
yesterday, with the request that wo

"In your morning issue, in rcferenco
to the fastest time on u Southern road,

HOMICIDE AT MATTHEW'S BLUFF.-The

ing account of a homicide, which oc?

"An Irishman, named Patrick Plun?
kett, waa employed by Mr. lt. lt. Turner
for some time during the past summer
and fall. In n settlement of their ac?
counts, Pntriok doomed himself wronged.
A few days before tho homicide ho was
observed going towurds Turner's house,
carrying in his hand a pistol. In reply
to a question, ho said that ho might pos?
sibly bo obliged to shoot Turner. On
Tuesday morning, while Tumor was in

that Patrick wus entering tho house.
Turnor got out of beti and took up his
gun, warning Patrick not to como nearer.

that ensued was most appalling. The
