Peculiar Incidents of the Religious Effects of the Disturbances. Charleston. Oct. 25 A religious lever which requires an earthquake to develop it would hardly count for much on the score of honesty and sincerity, not withstanding the old proverb, “better late than never.” The Charleston earth, quake, however, has developed a good deal of religion of the emotional kind. The night of Sept. 1, the night after our fatal earthquake, almost ail the women ard children in the First ward were huddled together in Washing ton square, formerly known as the City Hall Park. Quite a number of negroes were also in the square. One of them, a man of herculean frame, and with lungs that might have done duty lor a black smith's forge, was engaged in wrestling in prayar. LOUDER THAN THE ROAR. His voice drowned even the horrible subterranean roqr which accompanies all the earthquakes, and could be heard squares off. Some who had their wives and little children with them went to him and urged him to pray in a softer tone of voice. This he refused to do, aud began to revile them for interfering with him. Three or lour white women were seated near him, and when the other whites de cided to remove the preacher train the park these white women interposed in his behalf and stated that they had engaged the negro to pray for them. It would surprise a good many people If the names of these ladies, who belong to the intelligent and aristocratic class of the community, should be given. The inci dent was recalled by one that came under observation yesterday afternoon. An open air religious meeting is held every Sunday afternoon in the open lot near the post office. The meetings were inaugurated several years ago by Thomas Leitch, a man who once upon a time led a very dissipated life in the gutters, but who has reformed and has become an honest, sincere Christian, a worthy citi zen and an earnest evangelist. A SPECIMEN PRAYER. The attendance at these meetings since the earthquake has beeu largely increased as might be imagined. Mr. Leitch is not here now, but a number of colored exbort ersareon hand aud conduct the exercises. As the Nmvscorrespondentpassedbythe meeting yesterday aiternoon the multi tude were on their knees and a colored man was leading in prayer. The News correspondent took down his words, which were as follows: “Oh, Lawd, we thy ohillun is misable sinuers, but we is trying to keep een de right paat. Ef we strays outer, it, oh Lawd, send de Agel Gabriel, and meek him shake us up ageu cento de straight paat. But lorde present, Lawd, please stop de shakes.” It is neediess to say that there was a hearty chorus of “Aniens,” to the con cluding portion of tbe prayer, at least. There was a sharp double shake this morning at 4 o’clock, but it caused no consternation as most people were asleep. LONDON’S FUND. London, Oct. 26.—The Lord M ay or has received a letter from the Mayor of Charleston, expressing thanks for the money lorwarded from London for the Charleston sufferers. Tne lund has beeu closed. SUICIDE OP A SAILOR. Death by Hanging Tlioagh His Feet Could Touch the Floor. Charleston, S. C., Oct. 25.—At an early hour this morning the body of a German sailor named William Boholtz was found in an outhouse on Cumberland street hanging to the hinges of the door.

At ;1 o’clock this morning he arose from his bed, secured a clothes line iu the yard, doubled it, made a slip knot around his neck and fastened it to the upper hinge. He then stood upon a tub and must have doubled himself up and Jumped off, for when the body was discovered his feet were on the ground and he appeared to be loaning up against the door. In order to strangle hlmsel! he must have kept, his feet drawn up so as to prevent them from touching tne ground. CINCIN MAT ICS CHOP KS. Sieter Slakes Home Startling State ments in Court. Cincinnati. Oct.2s.—George T. Sieter, ex-clerk of the Board of Public Works, was bound over to the grand jury to-day in $15,000.

The case of Morgan was submitted with out argument, and Judge Fitzgerald held Morgan to answer to the grand jury in $2,000, wnich was given. This testimony by Sieter was wholly unexpected at this time, although It, has been thought be would tell ail ne knew before the trials were ended. Landers’ Thefts.

Discrimination Out of the Jurisdiction uf State Laws When the Goods .Affect ed Are Going Ont of tlie State —Justice Miller of the Supreme Court Makes the Decision. Washington, Oct. 25.—The Supreme Court rendered its decision to-day in the case of the Wabash, St. Louis aud Pacillo Railroad Company, plaintiffs in error, against tbe people of the State of Illinois. The speeifio allegation was that the rail road company charged Elder t McKinney 15c. per 160 pounds for transporting goods from Peoria to New York oity, and on the same day charged Isaac Bailey and F. O. Swannell 25c. per 100 for the same class of goods tram Gilman, 111., to New York, Gilmun being 80 miles nearer New York than l’eorla. The discrimination, it was alleged, was in violation of i he law of Illinois, which prohibits any charge for the transportation of passengers or treignt within the State of Illinois pro portionally greater than would be charged for the transportation of passen gers or like classes of Irelght over a greater distance ou the same road THE GIST OF THE DECISION. The gist of the decision is contained ia the conclusion, as follows: “When it is attempted to apply to transportation tnrough an entire series ot States a prin ciple of this kind and each one of the States, or if half a dozen States shall at tempt to establish its own rates ot trans portation and its own methods to prevent discrimination in rates or to permit it, the deleterious influence upon the free dom of oommerce among the States and upon the transportation of goods through those States oanuot be overestimated. That this species of regulation is one which must be, il established at all, ol general and national charaoier, and can not be safely and wisely remitted to local rules and local regulations, wethink.it clear from what has already been said, and if it he a regulation of commerce, as we ihink we have demonstrated it is, and as the Illinois court concedes it to be, it must be of that national character, and regulation can only appropriately be by general rules and principles which de mand that it should be done by Congress under the oommerce olause of the con stitution.” JUDGMENT REVERSED. The judgment of the Supreme Court of Illi ois, which was adverse to the rail road, is reversed, and the oase is remanded to that court lor further proceedings, in conformity with the above opinion. The opinion is by Justice Miller. Justice Bradley delivered a dissenting opinion, in which the Cniei Justice and Justice Gray concurred. In this opinion it is conceded that Congress might, if it saw fit, regu late the matter under consideration, but not having done so it held that tbe state does not lose its power to regulate the charges of its own railroads in its own territory simply because the goods, or persons' transporting tnem, have been brought from or are destined to a point beyond the State borders.
