Later from Havasa. The steamship
Crescent City, Captain Baxter, from New
Orleane on the J 1th and Havana, the. 15ih
instant, arrived at New York on Saturday.
She brings 52 passengers, and a cargo of
Molasses and tobacco. There were but
few vessels in port at Havana, and business
was dull. The health of the Island was re
ported to be very good. Bishop Hughes,
who went to Havana in this ateomer from
New York, for the benefit of his health, was
fast recovering from the bronchitis.
Methodist Church is Georgia. In the
Macon Cititen we nd some interesting
statistics of the Georgia Methodist Episco
pal Conference. From them we learn that
the Church is increasing very rapidly in that
State. The present number of white mem
bers is 50,8C95 of black do. 18.589-being
an increase, during llie past year, of near
4 000 members. The number of preachers
is 532 an increase of 14 since the last an
nual report.' .. . . . -.
The Seicatorship. The Scioto Gaielle t
learns, bv private advices, that the caucus

at fie Capital, for the purpose of nominating1
a candidato for the Uuited States Senate,
resulted in nothing. . Twenty-one ballots
wsre taken, and at le. gth, at 2j o'clock

It was prevented by an adjournment, and

Legislative. It appears that the "Erie

yesterday, but it is impossible to tell how or
why. Burchard's substitute was voted down,
and then the original resolution was lost by
a vote of 55 to 25.

It was a bitter night. The snow had
been falling in fleecv flif.ht. durintr tho
greater portion of the day, and the cold was
so intense that little business ot any Kina
had been prosecuted by the industrious and
enterprising citizens of tho village. Night
had succeeded day. The snow and sleet
were still descending and the spirit of the
storm seemed to howl around the house, and
through the fields and orchards and forests,
and among the distant mountains.
Mr. Rowland had returned from his coun
ting house at an earlier hour than usual.
Supper had been served, and the family had
gathered around the sparkling fire. The
children had been put Co bed in an adjoin
ing apartment, and the Infant was sleeping
in me crauie under me immediate nonce oi

newspaper, and as the fitful blast moaned a
round his commodious dwelling, he wouly

Suddenly some one rapped atthe door.
It was oDcned. when a little cirl of about
seven years old was admitted. Her scanty
dress was tattered and torn, a ragged quilt

thrown around tier snuuiucrs, ana a puirut
miserable old shoes upon her leet. She was
"You are the widow Watkins' little daugh
ter! said Mrs. Rowland inquiringly.
The llitlo frirl answered in tho affirma
tive, and added that her ma was sick and
wished Mr. Rowland to step over and see
her, for she thought she would surely die.
Mr. Rowland owned the place on which
the sick woman resided. She was very in
digent, and but poorly able-to pay tho ex
truvagant rent which the Unteeling owner
exacted. The property was once her hus
band's, or rather her own; being a gift from
her father on the very day of her wedding.
Mr. Walking waa wealthy when a youns
man, and educated for the bar, and no one
seemed more likely to le successful in his
profession. Ho and Mr. Kowiana were ear
ly associates. The latter a few years be:
tore the period at liich we now find him

career of the inebriate. Ho- still quaffed
the liquid poison, and still did the heartless
dealer hold out inducements to prevail upon
him to sink lower into wreicnouncss mm

morning found dead in the street. He had

night in a statu of intoxication. The night
wa dark and he probably missed his way

tret out and being slupified with rum, he
went to sleep and frozo to death.
Rowland in a short time foreclosed the
mortgage, and the homo of the drunkard's
wife became tho legs I property of the man
who hail destroyed lier peucu, auu reuuocu
her to beggary and want. Ho permitted her
to remain on the premises, exacting an ex

where the weary are at rest. No one had
been near her; no one secmcu 10 care ior

nearest neighbor that she was sick.
Mr. Rowland tell anxious oniy ior in
rent, there being at that time, a small sum
due. And perhaps it is owing to that cir
cumstance that he so readily consented to
accompany the little girl to the room of her
sick mother. Ho drew on his overcoat, tied
a woolen comfort round his neck, drew on
his gloves, and taking his nmbrella, set out
through the drifting snow and sleet, and bent
his way to the widow's uncomfortable home.

Nutadny ISvenlfiff. Jan. 29,
Cheat Car a Little WbolA great
deal of political capital was tried to be rais
ed out of charges against Cuvernur Ram
sey, of Minnesota. All thesa charges turn
out as we expected. Ou a close examina
tion Into them by Judge Youao and Col.
(ioauiN. to whom their x4iniualiou was
committed by the President, the result is a
complete exoneration of Governor Ramset.
The Baltimore Sun, says: .. . .
Ono the charges was a violation of the
sub-treasury act, as if that act could be, or
ever had been, strictly adhered to. Gov.
Ramsey had six hundred thousand dollars to
psy tho Indians. Ho had a draft on the
New York sub-treasury for tha'amount, but
found it itn possible to take mote thaq a sixth
part of it in specie, and even litis amount
it required eight men to lift. ..The balance
he took in drafts upon the Iwp best banks
in New York City, and their bills which
are always preferred to specie in the west;
The other charges wero found to be equally
frivolous with this.
The Eagle took great pains o copy D . A .
Robertson's charges avainat Gov, Ramsey,
and we trust it will now have the honesty
to set its readers right on this subject. Jus
tice demands that it should do it.
