We wero yesterday apprised of the
death of Mr, Fred Whitcamp, who found a
watery grave in the Mississippi river, about
six miles above this city, on Sunday last,
It appears that the river had washed away
the support from beneath the river bank,
and upon Mr. Whitcamp, and a laborer in
Ids employ, approaching it, the bank gave
away beneath them carrying them both
into the stream. A tree stump being with
in reach of the laborer he secured a hold
upon it and thus saved his life, but Mr
Whitcamp was immediately carried away
by the current. Owiug to the highness of
the water which cuts off all communication
between this city and Mrs. Whitcamp 's
farm, she found it impossible to convey the
sad intelligence of her husband's death to
her relatives and friends sooner, and it was
with ttie greatest ot difficulty tint she yes
terla succeeded in reaching 'Cairo. Mr.
Wiiitcamr) took up ids residence in this
city in '04 and was, ut the time of h:s
death, known to quite all of our citizens
as aa industrious man who made his
living by tho sweat of his brow,
and who was honest to the core and gener
ally esteemed. I la is a brother ot cur
fellow-citizen Mr. Henry Whitccanip, who
resides on Poplar, near the corner of Seven

himself with the Masonic fraternity an 1 has
been an active Mason of good standing
ever since. He frequently attended divine
services in the German Lutheran church
and was, we believe, a member theerof at
tlie time of his death. He was fifty-eight
years of age aud leaves a wife aud two
daughters who mourn his sudden taking
oil", ami who have our sincere sympathy.
A notice of reward offered for the recovery
of his remains will be found in another
We this morning omit the proceedings
of the Woman's Christian Temperance
Union in order to givu place to the two
po.-ms read Itcfore the meeting. The meeting
was, a the ladies' meetings always ure, one
of much interest, and it was apparent to all
that the ladies had spared no pains in making-
it so. We took notes of Mrs. Wood
Ritr.'iihouse's talk- ",-eoldirigs" rather
an 1 it would give t:s pleasure to nt lea-t
pu nish a few of her remarks which were
sensible and io use a womaa's word al
together "charming," but we have not the
space to spare, and therefore content ourself
with saying that she pleased all
who heard her, and proved herself
the champion of a'd agreeable scolders
such as any man would listen to for hours
with pleasure. Mrs. V. P. Wright's read
ing of Mrs. Williamson's jioem. which ap
pears in this issue, was generally admired,
anl the audience very heartily applauded
her. Col. Lowery made a short talk, and
although he was unprepared and did not
expect to be called upuii. he spoke tor a
while in Ids usual happy manner like
Shakespeare, not repeating anything for
merly said. His remarks were, as they
usually are, full of reason, t'.uent and flow
ery, and elicited the applause of the au
dience. Bit b.-furo we closo this item we
want t) notice the singing which
delighted the hearts of all true lovers of
music, who were present. The viartetto,
wide,',: lurnish it, i composed of Mis. flattie
MeKec, Mrs. V. '. Wright. Mr. Nick
Hacker, and Mr. Walter Mr-lva-. Miss
Fanny 11 irelay, was nt the organ. It is
not saying to nnie'i when we s ty that o:n
ot the principle causes , w'iiy tin- hall was
so liberally filled on so disagreeable 11
night, was the supposition that the r.bare
named ladies and gentlemen would furnish
the music, and the long and loii 1 applause
that was jdveii proved that their tH'-rts
Aire not lost, were we to imo lamt wir.i
mytking it could not be the quality, but
th-1 (itiantitv of the music tarnished.
LONGFELLOW'S DAY AT THE HIGH
When the pupils of the high school were
divided into two s'-ctioiis f"r the sake of ex
citing a little healthfil annimnthm ia writ
ing and speaking, it was agreed that the
two sections should unite in observing
Longfellow's birth day, aud again on th
Friday afternoon succeeding the spring ex
aminations. As the scholars are very much interested
in their studies, it was deemed inexpedient
to divert their attention from tliein. So
little time was taken to prepare for the
occasion, the sch ilars felt that they could
not do justice to it, nor to themselves. The
exercises were, however, proiifahie and
creditable to the school and highly enter
taining to the visitors, of whom them was a
large number, notwithstanding, the inclem
The beautiful room was ex
tended by throwing open the
folding doors and the rostrum placed
at the aide. We thought this arrangement
an excellent one, us every mv.: could see and
hear without difficulty. Y,V take occasion
to say right here that the high school room
is the pleasant eat fichool reoin we ecer vis
ited and have visited tinny in this mid

from the works of Longfellow were then
given by the school. These were followed
by a piano duett, which was well rendered
by Monte Metcaif nu I Nannie Olmsted.
Next was given a well written sketch of
the life and writings of Longfello'.v, by
Lizzie Wood. One of the poet's (ir.st pro
ductions, published in ISM, entitled, "A
Problem of Life," was recited by George
Corlis in a manner thut brought out the
strong points of tire poem.
Next, Edith Martin gave the
"Wreck ot the Hesperus." Edith ha,

enunciation, t-'ie was listened to witii close
A beautiful piano silo was then finely ex
ecuted by Rosa Goldmine.
"Excelsior," by Arthur L"iuoii. one of tlie
Excelsiors and a goad declaimer, was next
given. Next f-diov.-..-1 the s-ini-humorous
story of "Mih s St imli-h's. Courtship," beau
tifully told in her o.vn language by Maud
llittenhouse. More choice senti
ments were given by the school,

by all. Dy r-quvs!, Mrs. Spa-aiding gave
Longfellow's "Rainy Day" to a .--id. .-wi-et

was not only appropriate to the weiticr of
to-d'.tv. but esp' cially so to follow the htory
of poor Evangeline, wh-is; lit'..- was n hug,

sang beau'. i fully. "The Famine iu Ireland"
by William Baiubrick was well delivered,
as was "Siin'l"!phin" by Annie Riey, and
the "Building of tne Ship" by Frank Carl.

Sits enthroned 11 go idess fair:
Peerless -fair, as the dewy in-i.r.
Beneath her smiles home's pleasures born.
We nnni" her Love, we crown her queen.
She rub's with peaceful pride serene:
The ("poller conies, and Love lies prone,
By rutlile.-s hands torn from her throne.
The sweet home, onre. a peaceful shrine,
ila'h felt the curse of the foaming wine -'Tis
now an altar, where virtue's dew.
Lies mantled o'er with d-ath's while hue.
Far stronger than duty, fear, or love
Than ties on earth, or in heaven ubocc,
The drunkard's pirsion, all sweet cords
The demons of want and woe uwake.
"Who goes there?" young man beware !
A mother's heart must the burden bear--A
mother's hope, with her heart is ci ush'd.
As human strength sinks in tin: dust.
"Who goes there?" the husband led,
Lui-'d to the Htiaif, by the temptress
Once there, her loathsome lace to show,
She lifts the mask, beneath il woe!
Ills wife still listens with wciry car--Tim!
holy thing n woman's tear,
Dmps in the diet front tender eves
A woiu,n''i heart is iVi sacrifice.
Oh, God! how ion,; must we endure,
TV.', nil lie: hmiies oi' our lan I are pure
'Till where the mantling cup is filled,
The cup lies broken tic red wine spilled?
"Who goes there?" through the cottage
Whose step is heard on the mid, bar" lloor?
'Tis death's angel again and again, i
A child is calling his father in vain.
"See! mamma, see! I'm glad to go,
But sad to leave you weeping so
I see the angels with garments white;
Dear papa come home come soon to
night." 'If he would come, would only come
You would not grieve with papa at home;
If he would come to bid too good-bye,
And kissdear m inim i befou- I die.
The mother keeps her vigils lone
'Til! the tnoo-.i and patient stars are me -
t And whdi the night lias pass'd uw.iy,
I Si"-' h '''' I'iugoVr the silent clay.
"Who goes there?" a badge on his hivist,
We catch a gleam of a victor's crest -Up
'ii ids shield is graven still.
The m 'tro, "Go I helping me I will."
Be re-oiute brothers, in this light.
And wh'-re the wine is foaming bright -
Wherever sorrow's tears are bum,

When, with ils lightest punishment,
Forth fioin its walls the men are sent
Who lure our boys oh! fid to tell
To train them in the ways of hell.
Shall the while ribbon idle be?
Shall all our vows be vanity?
Shall we not lise, take up oar cross,
And counting everything but loss,
With prayer to God and trust in Him,
Although with tears our eyes are dim
Declare our loved ones shall be free,
God helping us tins shall not lie.
This to our ribbon strength shall give!
So shall its snowy whiteness live.
So shall our noble watehword stand,
For God, and home, and native land.
