SINGULAR MORTALITY IN A
From the Chicago Tribune.
The Rev. Dr. Amasa Converse, editor
of tbo Louisville, Kentucky, und Rich
mond, A'irginla, 'Christian Observer', and
formerly of Philadelphia, died at Luula
vlllo on the 0th cf Dccombcr last after a
four dars1 Illness. The intolllgenco
of his death reached a rclativo
of his In this city on the 10th,
and sho communicated it by lottor to an
other relative, Gov. Converse of rcrmont,
tbon at Woodstock in that state, on tbo
samo day. The lottor reached him on tbo
13th, on which day his wifo, who was
standing by his sido, nflor read
ing tho lottor, suddonly fell dead
on the floor, no pravious in
timation of deceased having been
given. Tho governor's niece, Miss Luna
. Edson, who had lived for many years
in his bouse, was absent at the time,
being on a visit at Burlington, Vermont.
A telegraphic dispatch was sent to tho
lady who sho was visiting, so that the news
might be broken to horgontly.but although
this was done In thu kindest manner,
tho young lady was so overcomo by the
shock that sho bocamo unable to swallow
anything or to sloep. Sbo could not
start for Woodstock that evening, as the
last train had departed ; but ntxt morn
ing tho lady escorted Miss Edson, by rail,
to Woodstock, tho latter taking a violent
chill on the road. Miss
Edson, on hor arrival at
her uncle's, was just ablo to kiss tbo life
less features of her aunt and retlro to bed,
whore she lay gradually sinking, until tbo
27th of December, when she died. Hor
mother, who was sister to Mrs. Converse,
and bad long lived with her, worn out
with watching nnd grief, thereupon took
to her ted, and died on thu 1st of Jan
uary. And thus Gov. Convorso, who is uni
versally beloved and rospected, has bon
boreaved of his cntiro family, Ho has no
although a little word, has a very broad
signification, and includes a numberless
list of horrors which enter Into tho com
position of snuff and tobacco. Congress
should hwsltato before it makes theio arti
cles any worse than they aro.

His father and mother aro living, and

and business ability, is frequently re
quested to act in that capacity by bis
nolghbors in Ohio. Ho mounts a horso as
briskly as a young man of twonty, and
rides for hours without apparent fatigue.
The only important particular in which

which is somewhat impaired. His consort
