We ore pained to record the death cf
the aged colored man Richard Smith,
better known as old Dick Smith,
which sad event occurred
here yesterday morning. For over
twelve years Dick has been employed on
various wharf boats In this city, aud was
a quiet, Industrious, Inoffensive, man
whom every body liked.
The steam yacht, Florence, contained
the hunting and fishing party of Captain
J. D. Lucas of St. Louis, which Is com
posed of six presons, Including the ne
gro and the dog, aud is bound for White,
Black and other rivers on a protracted
hunt. The little yacht, Florence, is a
novelty, being driveu by an engine only
4 inches in diameter, by 4 Inches stroke,
and yet making excellent time.
Captain Dtigau yesterday evening re
celved a dispatch stating that the steamer
Golden Rule had sunk atOrange.landing
above Vicksburg, and calling the Eekert
to her assistance. No further purthu-
lari. Tho Golden Bute passed here
last Wednesday, with a good cargo for
New Orleans and way points, She is
new, and was considered a model stern
wheel boat being roomy and comlort-
able, having superior passenger accom
modatlons. Her commander, Cuptaiu
O. P. Sliiukle was the owner of the ill
fated Charles Bodman that was burned at
New Orleans, it is feared the Golden
ltule will prove a total loss.
Day before yesterday Captain Adklns
resigned bis position as commander of the
transfer steamer Junius S. Morgan, and
Captain Wm. H. Sandusky has been ap
pointed to till the vacancy. We did not
learn what Ciptaln Adklns has In view,
but hope that we are not to lose him as a
citizen of Cairo. W e are glad, however,
that the company was able to command
so good a man to fill the vacancy.
Captain Wm. II. Sandusky has com
manded the ferry boats "Cairo" and
'Three States" during the post tight
years, and In all that time his employers
have not lost a dollar through any fault
ot his. Always at his post when duty
required his presence, always sober, and
possessing a judgement that lias never
yet led him astray, be has been singularly
successful in avoiding accidents,
and during all the time that he piloted
those ferry boats we believe be never
broke a single plank In making a land
