The second tnato of tbeill fated Eve

that bis boat was entirely tilled with
f 'avengers, all but four of whom won
ad ios. lie lost nil his oars when the
steamship went down, and had noth
ing but a small pieco of board to nnvi
gate with. From repeatedly being
c apsized ho lost nil but four of tho la
dies,, there being left nine persons, all
told, in tho boat. This happened du
ring the first forty-eight hours, lie
then took a shirt from one of the jren-
tlemen, his own being torn off, mid
rigged a sail by putting a eros bar
through the arms and lushing an up
right piece to it.

one man and ono woman died,' and
were thrown overboard. The rest of
the men and one lady became insano
from thirst and hunger, and jumped
overboard. This lull thematoand two
young women, Miss Rosa Howard ami
Miss .Annie Norton. They knew on
the night of the 8lh that they- were
near a port, from the feeble gfiincring
of tho ships lantern, which is allowed
to disgrace this lighthouse; but the la
dies were nearly insensiblo. Fortu
nately a slight rain came on at dark,
and ilr. Goldie wrung a small quanti
ty of water into their mouths, obtained
by spreading n small piece of petticoat
on the after-thwarts. This greatly re
vived them and reopened their stiffen
ed jaws. They were sitting in the
bottom of the boat quietly, hands
clasped on his knees, when the boat
entered the breakers, he steering with
the piece of board. Tho boat passed
through two breakers successfully, but
capsized in the third, in water so'shal
low that Cioldie's feet touched bottom
at once. He reached slioro quickly,
shouted to his companions and went
into tho eurf as far as tho undertow
would permit, but neither saw nor
heard them again. They, undoubtedly,
in their enfeebled condition, forsix days
without food or water, other than one
small fish, and tho rain of Monday
evening; uluit without clothing; ex.
posed to almost a tropical sun ; were
drowned at once. They could not
mako the,ona small eftort'that would
have crowned their hcroio endurance
with success. T'ho body of Miss Annie
Norton (printed Addio in the list of
jassengcrs of theSavannuli News) was
bund, anil buried next morning above
high-water mark. She was from Lii;
Island. The place of burial is veil
known, should her relatives desire to
regain the body or transfer it to tho
Catholic cemetary here. Miss Rosa
Howard's body (there is noJRosn How
ard, but Rosa Burns, in the same list)
was iouna inc same evening by two
fishermen, but their cowardly droad
would not permit them to touch it. It
was agaiu nueii by a little boy who was
unable to move il out of tho surf. I
havo offered rewards and bent expedi
tions in search of it, thus far without
success, and shall send somo of my
boatmen again at low water to-dav.
with directions to bring it or secure it,
if possible. If I find it alter sending
this letter to-morrow at daylight 1
will have it buried in tho cemetery
grounds of the Catholic church, and aJ
viso j-ou of the fact.'
THE CONDUCT OP THE LADIES DURING THE
The courago, patience, obedience of
directions, heroic, quiet endurance of
thirst and hunger and of an almost
tropical sun. ot'all the ladies, is spoken
of by Mr. Goldio as being beyond
praice ; but Miss Howard (who had but
a chemise, with her name on its front)
and Miss Norton (who had, in addition
to that garment, a sort of worsted sack,
trimmed with dark trimming, and
made to be worn with a belt) who sur
vived tho rest of tho passengers, were
brave, gentle, ladylike, uncomplaining,
ablo to obey directions, desirous of as
sisting themselves and others to tho
utmost they were heroines. That
they should havo failed at tho last mo
ment, after such heroic struggles, is
Had to think of. They needed but tho
6teel-liko muscles of tho officer to havo
Bocured success. Miss Norton was
about twenty years of age, quite tall,
with dark hair. Miss Howard, on the
contrary, wus not above five feet ono
and a half or two inches, and sixteen
or seventeen years of age; both re
markablo fine lookingwomen ; tho hair
of tho latter was also dark. Tho last
named lady was from the city of New

Another Boat's Crew Saved. Roger Williams--Search for his
Remains--His Body Absorbed
by the Roots of a Tree--A
Rev. J. Hf MjGaktv, of Ciicinnati,
is writing a series- of very rntcrtnining
articles for the Ladies' Repository, on
Rocier Williams, tho founder of the
Slato of Khodo Island.', In Jhe last
number we find the following curious
and interesting statement concerning
the remains of tho distinguished titan :
Ninety years after his dcatJi, in 1771
steps wciv taken to erect to htm some
suitable monument, but the storms of
tho Revolution came on and tho work
was forgotten. Hul recently the ques
tion has been agitated anew", and Will
iams may yet nt least have somo out
ward sign to mark his greatness and
perpetuate his name. Httring a per
iod of one hundred and eigldy-threo
years not even a rough stone has been
set up to mark the grave of tho founder
of Rhode Island, till the precise locali
ty of his 'grave had been almost for
gotten, and could only bo ascertained
by the most carelul investigation.
Suffice it to sav, however, the spot was
found, an-' tho exhumation made a
short time ago. though there was little
loOxhume. Ou scraping off the turf
from the surface of the trround, the
dim outlines of seven graves, contained
within less than one siiuarw rod, reveal
ed the burial ground of Roger Will
iams. In colonial times each family
had its own burial ground.which was
usually near the family! residence.
I hree of these seven graves were those
ot children, the remaining four were
adults. The easterly grave was iden
tified as that of Mr. Williams. On dig
ging dowu into the '"charnnl houe,"
it was fonnd that every thing had
parsed iuU oblivion. The shapes of
i ne coinns touiu only be trncea by a
dark line of carbonaceous matter, the
thickness of the sides of the coffins,
with their ends, distinctly defined.
The lusted reinuin of the hinges .and
nails, with ft fvv fragments of wood
and a round knot, wits :ftl that could
be gathered from his grave. In the
gravo of hid wife there was not a traco
of any thing save a single- lock of
braided huir, which had survived the
lapse of more than ono hundred and
eighty years. Near the grave btood a
venerable Mpple tree, when and by
whom plunted, is not known. Tins
tree had sent two of its main roots into
the graves of Mr. and Mrs. Williams.
The larger root had pushed- its way
through tho earth till it ruached the
rocise spot occupied by tho skull of
ioger Williams. J. here, making a
turn, us if going round the skull, it l'ol
lowol the direction of tho backbone to
the hips. Hero it divided into two
brunches, sending one along1 each leg
to the heel, where they both turned up
ward to the toes. One of these roots
formed a slight crook at . the knee,
which makes the whole bear a very
close resemblance to n human form.
This singular rout is preserved with
great care, not only as an .'illustration
of a great principle in vegetation, but
for its great historic association.. There
were t he graves; emptied of every par
ticle of human dust ! Not U. trace of
any thing was left ! It is known to
chemistry that all flesh and gelatinous
matter civing consistency to tho bones
are resolved into carbonic acid gas,
water and air, while the solid linie
dust usually remains. But in this case
even the phosphate of lime ofthe bones
of both graves was all gone! There
stood tho "guilty apple tree," as was
said at the time, caught in tho very
act of robing the gravo."
To explain tho phenomenon is not
the design of this article. Such an ex
planation could bo given, and many
other similar cases adduced. But this
fact must be admitted : tho organic
matter of Roger Williams had been
transmitted into the apple tree ; it had
passed into tho woody fiber, and wus
capable of propelling a steam engine ;
it had bloomed in the apple blossoms,
and had become pleasant to tho eye ;
and, more, it had gone into the . fruit
from year to year, so that tho question
might be asked, ho ate Roger il-

H small child of Mr. Jhon V. liarncs,
on Church Hill, had been very badly
burned. Since that timu tho litllo suf

parents weru awakened in the night by

rat had bitten it in several nluces about

of tho rat on th right eyebrow, tho up

tho child's tongue, showed the ferocity
of tho attack. (liichmcnd Dispatch,
