DEATH OK CUT. A1IUAIUM WILLI 4 MS.
We avail ourselves of thu earliest opjiortu-
nity ntlorded us to record tho death of that
noblo mnn and highly esteemed citizen, Capt.
Ahrnham Williams, He died on Sunday,
tho Cth .Instant, on board thu steamer Molliu
Able, near Havou Sura, Lu of u complica
tion of disease! from which hu had long been
suffering, more or less Intensely. His body,
brought hither in charge of his ncphow, W .
M. Williams, was despatched to Covington,
Ky., wherp it nov repose besldo tho ushos
of lit honored mother.
Very recently Cajit. Williams embarked
in a manufacturing enterprise in this city,
upon which ho built high hopes of success,
and which,- under his Intelligent direction;
would no doubt havo uiiMV.ered his most san-
L'ulno expectations. 0 refer to tho erec
tion of a costly distillery Into which ho had
incorporated Mich improved and patented
appliances iik promised to insure tho ends at
which ho aimed, beyond any peradvonture.
Among tho earliest settlers of Cairo, (un
dor its present mnplceO Cunt. Williams en
tertained nn abiding faith that tho place wus
destined for 0110 of the leading commercial
marts of the American continent, and in te'ti
mony of the fineerlty of that faith ho never
relinqui-hed hu foothold therein, or for
moment despaired of tho future, howover
dUcournglng tho nsjieets of the present.
Few men hud moru friends or more siuccru
ones than Capt. Williams. His was 11 noblo
heart gctnirous, yielding to tho softest
touch of sympathy, full of good will for his
followuneii, nnd nurturing no bitterness for
his enemies. Wo havo known few such
mnn; f-w nuuh, therefore, havo wo mourned.
