Mfmpis. Tknn.. Dec. 23. The quiet of the
Mni.hnt.h was broken bv news of a steam
boat disaster rivaling that of the Golden
City in loss of life and sensational details.
The ill-fated craft iu this instance was the
Kate Adams, which has been accorded tho
name of the ' Queen of the Fort." For six
years she plied the river betw een Arkansas
City and Memphis. Now she lies a charred
and blackened wrec k on the muddy bottom
of the Mississippi, w ith only her stem post
showing above the water. Her cargo is
either burned or floating down the river.
Her more precious freightage of souls is
almost equally broken and scattered. The
loss of life is variously estimated at from
twenty to fifty, including the third clerk
ami two white cabin passengers, several
white deck passengers, and the rest col
ored. The exact number cannot yet be
learned. The lire roke out on the lar
board side of the loat while many of the
passengers w ere nt breakfast, nnd as the
iKinny Ento was steaming merrily along
just "below Commerce, Miss., forty miles
Memphis. In loss than fifteen miuutes the
fastest craft in these waters was up more.
The Knte Adams was just sibc yeWs old
when the ignition of a cotton bale sent her
to the bottom of the river on w hose bosYtm
she so proudly floated. She was worth
fully 7.",HiO, having bad repairs costing
nearly one-third of that amount put on her

along the line of the South Carolina rail
road, and is embraced in Barnwell and
Aiken counties. Last year the shipments
were over 2,000,000 melons. Colonel M.
Brown was elected president.
The farmer element in tne csoutri Caro

victory over the lawyers, a few days ago,
when the Senate passed, oy a vote oi n iu

Captain A. J. White, a well-known rail
way man, died at his home near Milner,
Ga., a few days ago. After the war he
became president of the Macon & West
ern railway, 'and later accepted the presi
dency o the Savannah, Griffin & North
Alabama railroad. These positions he
held until the roads were leased to the
Central in 1871. He was also one of the
original lessees of the Western & Atlantic
railroad from the State. He was seventy
four years of age.
The cotne?-stone of the Good Samaritan
tr,-u..;t1 for colored neonle. was laid at
Charlotte, N. C, a few days since, in the
presence of quite a number of people,
i.h u-iitfl and black. The buildinsr of
this hospital has been undertaken by white
persons entirely, and is unaer tne au-
spices of the Episcopallchurch. Both white !
and colored clergymen assisted at the cer
emony and made short addresses. The
colored clergymen expressed, on behalf
of their race, their gratitude at such an
evidence of true religion and charity.
Great excitement was occasioned a few
days since near the South Carolina line,
on the road leading from Charlotte, N. C,
to Rock Hill. James Anderson, a farmer,
discovered the head of a man in the mid

been severed with a sharp instrument,
being smoothly cut from the shoulders.
It had not been identified, but appeared to
be the head of a young white man, about

and mustache. The trunk had not been
discovered at last account.

know it is very popular in this day for
young men to think there, is something
more charming in Buepucisiu iui u

pride themselves on tneir rree minn-niK
on all these subjects. My young friends.
I want to tell you what I know from ob
servation, that while 'skepticism is a
beautiful land at the start, it is the great,
Sahara Desert at the last.
Years ago a minister's sou went off
from home to college. At college he
formed the acquaintance of & youug msn
whom I shall call Ellison. Ellison wa
an infidel. Ellison scoffed at religion,
and the minister's son soon learned from
him the infidelity, and when he went home
on his vacation broice nis ratner-s nears
by his denunciations of Christianity.
Time passed on and vacation came, and
. . am . 1 . 1 . .
the minister's son went on i peuu m"
vacation, and was on a journey and came
to a hotel. The hotel-Keeper saiu: i am
sorry that to-night I shall have to put you

Try sick and dying man. I can give you
no other accommodations." "Oh," said
the young college student and minister
son, "that will make no difference to mc,
except the matter of sympathy with any
body that is suffering, ine young man
retired to his room, but could not sleep.
All night long he heard tne groaning oi
the sick man, or the step of the watchers,
and his soul trembled. He thought
n. iiimooif. "Vow. there is only a thill
tivr iiiin'i.' - ' , - -
wall between me and a departing spirit!
How if Ellison should know how I feel?
How if Ellison should find ouj how my
heart flutters? "What would Ellison say if
he knew my skepticism gave wayr- no
slept not. In the morning,' coming down,
he said to the hotel-keeper: "How is the
sick man?" "Oh." said the notei-Keepr,
"he is dead, poor fellow ! the doctors told
us he could not last through the night."
"Well," said the young man, -wnat an
the sick one's name? where ia ho from?"
"Well," said the hotel-keeper, "he is from
Providence College." -rroviaence col
lege! What is hU name?" "Ellison."
"Ellison!" Oh, how the young man was
stunned ! It was his old college ma te doad
without any hope, it was many noun iw
fore the young man could leave that hotel.
He got on his horse and started homeward,
and all the way ne neara soiimjiuiuk -

He came to no satisfaction until he en

Adoniram Judson. Which do you like
the best Judson's skepticism or Judson's
Christian life? Judson's suffering for
Christ's sake, Judson's almost martyr
dom? Oh, young man, take your choice
between these two kinds of lives. Your
own heart tells you, this morning, tha
Christian life is admirable, more peace
ful, more comfortable and more beauti
ful. Oh, if religion does so much for a man
on earth, what wirl it do for him in Heav
en? That is the thought that comes to me
now. If a soldier can bo allowed to shout
"Huzza!" when he goes into battle, bow
much more jubilantly bo can afford to
shout "Huzza!" when he has gained the

Heaven! I want to see that young man
when the glories of Heaven have robed
and crowned him. I want to hear him
sing when all huskiness of earthly coios is
gono and he rises up witn tne great, ur
ology. I want to know what standar l lie
will carry when marching unuer arcuu i

know what company he will keep in a land
