The Death of 'Father Tnylor" Interesting Account by Una of lila fuplla. Mr. William Allen Butler communicates to the Evening Post the following extract from a letter from his eon, a student at Phillips Aca demy, at Andover, Mass., giving an account of the sudden death, on Sunday morning, of Samnel Harvey Taylor, LL.D., the venerable and eminent Principal of that famous classical school: "This morning Dr. Taylor left his house as usual to teach our Bible class. It was snowing hard, and the walking was tiresome on accouut of the deep snow. The Doctor came up the steps, and just as he entered the door fell. A lew of us were in the chapel and heard him fall; we ran out and found him lying on the floor; one of the boys raised his head up, and the rest ot us ran in different ways for the doctor, etc. I thought when I first saw him that he bad only fainted, but we soon saw that he was very sick. George Taylor rnshed in and took his father's head in his lap, and soon the doctors came. They unloosed his cravat and began to rub bis hands. I ran to a house and brought some hot water to put to his feet. We brought a mattress aud some clothing and laid the doctor on them, and carried him from the hall to a recitation room, but I think he had died before we moved him. He never opened his eyes or spoke after he fell. It was a very Impressive sight to see the boys, almost the whole school, standing around him, the bell still tolling for the Biblical class, so sudden was his fall. Thus he died as many great men have died, In the midst of duty and, in the academy of which he was the head, with his pupils around him, and in the very house in which he had taught for so long a time." Last year 17,849,409 bushels of wheat were received In Chicago. The Massachusetts State constabulary force is now rather more popular lhaa it bus been heretofore. A Yale student has sued a New Haven policeman to recover damages for using the club on him too freely. The question which, sooner or later, agi tates all commjnities shall the street-cars be run on Sundsy f is now being discussed in New Haven. Republican papers in California say that if the party has a good man for candidate for Governor, it can sweep the State. Newton Booth is nrged by many for the position. Curiously enough, Mr. Dusobell, of the Pennsylvania Legislature, has been telling what he knows about the secrets of the Building Commission. t The Democrats of McCracken county, Ky., have held a convention to discuss the propriety of the Legislature passing a law to admit negro evidence in the State courts. The report of the Auditor of West Vir ginia this year Is more satisfactory than ever before. He estimates that the receipts during the vear will be ttiOo,379, and the charges upon the Treasury t53U,97. The "wheels of fortune" used at the draw lng of the San f ranclsco Mercantile Library lottery have been placed in front of the Library building to serve as gas-lamps, and to be constant reminders of dreams of fortunes unrealized. Till: RIVER H0RK0K. lulltirr rrrilrnlnr ot I lie Knplnaloa of thp Mrnuier V. K. Arthur. A despatch to the ClueinuiM Enquirer says: At nn enrly hour this morning a startling rumor was circulated through the city to the elloet Hint the ftcamer W. It. Arthur, Oaptaiu Harry W. liolnski commanding, which left this port Int evening fr Louisville, blew up near Islanl No. 40. The rumor proved, uu fortunately, too true, and the facts obtained by the sur vivals of the fearful disaster miko up a talc of hideous horror iv tulo of (hiv.h 1 y fire and water almost unequalled iu history. This morning cotton nnd pieces of tin? wrick were ui.-eoYi red Iloatinij past the lauding. The news was brought by Mr. J. S. Carter, for merly liver reporter of the Timet, of St. Loiii. who lloated down the river inn yawl nnd im pHrted the in foi mallon, when the ferry-lio.it jreelf.ior and a tiur boat Hai led for the scone of the dit-ustcr, picking up on their way many unfortunate beings, who were discovered Hoot ing down the river on hoards, cotton hales, and doorc, and arriving at the Arthur found her on a bar tear the foot of the island. Ttic explo sion occurred nt 1 o'clock this morning, while nil were as-lecp cave those on duty. The entire front part forward of the w"heel-houe was blown away, including ttie tex.H nnd pilothouse, "and immediately after wards fire broke out among the cotton, of which she had taken PiOO hale? hero, and which was piled up nearly even with the hurricane roof on the forecatIe. The tiro wa, however, subdued by the passengers aud crew, but only to break out agaiu and again, causing Intense excitement among the passengers. Tke boat finally floated down the river a mile or more, when it grounded on a bar in the middle of the stream aud sunk to the cabin Moor, the remaining passengers being crowded ou the huirkane roof aft the wheel-house. Mr. Alfred Church, of St. Louie, who also came in the ekiff with Mr. Carter, makes the following statement: I was sitting by the stove in the Imik pnrt of the boat, on the lower dock, when I heard a noise and sound as though a house was falling. The boiler (low backwards towards the stem of the steamer. I recovered my feet iu a few minutes nnd got on tho guards, then climbed up to the hurricane-deck. Here I found a num ber of pasKcngere, men, women, and children, all excited and iu their night clothes. They were screaming for help, and some were pray ing nnd appealing to each other for protection and safely. The forward part of the boat ap peared to be a perfect wreck. Iu a few miuutes a fire sprang up and blazed furiously. The en tire front purl of the boat forward of the wheel house was blown away, and nothing could be seen of texas, pilot-house, or chimney. The fire and excitement increasing, I lett the boat ou a cotton bale and floated down the river tor several miles until picked up. I believe there weie about fifty cabin passengers, including fifteen or twenty ladies, and thirty deck pas sengers on bo.ird. The crow numbered about twenty men. When the boat blew up and took fire she lloated down the river about a mile and grounded on a sand-bar. It soj-ued as if the boat was cut in two. The forward part was de stroyed by fire, while the portion aft of the wliecl-hout-e remained intact. AV'heu last 1 saw tho boat the wnler was up to her cabin-lloor, nnd a number of people were on the hurricane fleck. Several people were trying to put the fire out with buckets of water. I saw tho porter, bar-keeper, nnd the watchman on cotton bales, and heard a number of people out ia the river crying for help, but wo could not go near them ecause we had no oars in the boat The books and papers of the boat were all lost, so that there is no means of obtaining a correct list of those lost. Tho bodv of Martiu . Graney, second steward, of Evaisville. was also found. Graney. Milltr, Harper, and Alien, all belonging to the cabin crew, occupied one room In the texas. Grauey and Miller, who slept in forward berths, were lost, while Harper and Allen, In after berths, escaped without a scratch. Mr. Dillon, second mate, went up the river from the wreck on board the steamer Lock wood. From the appearance of the wreck two of the midship boilers must have exploded simulta neously, one goiDg straight up from Its foun dation, and the other being thrown aft, being found on the afterguard. Miss Mary E. McClary, a young girl from Chicago, on her way home, was drowned. After the explosion she made her way to the guards of the ladles' cabin, and was seen by the pantryman seemingly stupefied by fear, and as the boat sunk, and the water came nearly up to where she was, she plunged into the water and sank. NEW JERSEY AS A BREAKWATER. Iter Railroad Obstruction to Travel Aluec be Abandoned Manlfloant Opinion of a leading Journal. Frcm the Xewark Advertiser, Jan. 81. y "All roads lead to Rome," so far as Europe is concerned, and on this continent all roads lead to New York, and the great bulk of. Western travel aud trafllc must cross New Jersey. The late Henry J. Raymond once said that no railroad or canal could be built upon this conti nent that would not be tributary to New York, a theory which is curiously Illustrated of late in the "chaDge of base" made by two of the great trunk lines. The Pennsylvania Central Railroad was built in the interest of the city of Philadel phia, and with the design of making it a great seaport to rival New York in its foreign com merce. Yet as soon as the main trunk from Philadelphia to Pittsburg was constructed, the necessity arose for Western connections, the Fort Wayne route to Chicago was secured, and that again, after a brief rest, was pushed on further and further until the Central's real West ern terminus is now at San Francisco. With In terests so vast and connections so extended, the Company soon found Philadelphia an unsatis factory Atlantic terminus, and, partly by the establishment of the Allentown route, and fur ther by the West Philadelphia turnpike to Tren ton, has made Philadelphia only a way station on the trans-continental thoroughfare. It is now seeking a direct and perpetual line to New York by leasing the Camden ana Amboy. That secured, it will have a through Hue from ocean to ocean. Still another Instance of this tendency towards New York Is to be found iu the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, one of the most wisely and ener getically managed corporations In the country. Llko the Pennsylvania road, it was built In the interests of its chosen terminus as a seaDort. Trending far to the South, it seemed destined to contribute almost solely to the building up of Baltimore, bringing to it the rich trade of the Ohio valley, and building up steamship lines that could dare to compete wltn the Cunarders. It Is only a few years since this road was con sidered a dangerous competitor to the New York canals and railroads, and a heavy damage to the commerce of the metropolis. But in the extension of its Southern connections, espe cially since the war, it finds itself only a link when it wishes to be the controlling power in a through line between New Orleans and New York on the one branch, and the Ohio Valley and New York on the other. Five years since its weighty influence was employed in Congress to defeat any project of an air Hue between Washington and New York. Now, its Southern connections so urgently demanded a Northern outlet that it is working in the opposite direc tion, and is ready to form new alliances. The action in the State Senate last eveniug has some significance. On Thursday of last week Mr. Jarrard introduced a bill repealing so much of the charter of the Hamilton Laud Im provement Company as was construed to autho rize it to build a link of seven miles of railroad, which would complete, or nearly so, the con nections of a series of corporations which can be consolidated as a National Air Line Railroad. Mr. Jarrard's objection was that a railroad charter is an incongruous element in land improvement, a somewhat unusual logic which was met for the moment by Senator Taylor, by referring the charter to the State Attorney-General for his opinion as to its legality. The resolution passed, but was called up last night for reconsideration, and by a vote of 11 to 16 the resolution was negatived, thus leaving the Air Line people in their original status. It is not apparent that the Camdeu aud Amboy made any special resistance to this dis position of the case, and there are reasons fnow:h why it should not The termination of their monopoly Implies a promise on their psrt that the interests of tlia Stat tnmt bereatter take precedence. The negotiations I ending with tho Pennsylvania Central might possibly include a further consolidation of al the lesKT charters which have been shrewdly obtained on various pretenses. The Baltimore and Ohio capitalists claim consideration, and behind lies the power of Congress to compel direct communication. Tbcw hole drill nnd tone of railroad contro versy are towards nationalization. New Jcrr-ey has fel,h advantages belonging to her wonder ful geographical position. A new New York is rising upon the western shores of the Hudson, nnd the prospective growth seems to be illimit able. The pressure brought to bear upon our State is too enormous to bo resisted. It is the crush of a continent which demands free transit across our territory, and the wiser brains fall in with the march of the ago. We have not even the choice any longer. We must jield grace ful ly or yield per iorce. WlUJAMSRUK(rs TL R R0 R. The Wrrtrh with a ftlnnla lor Ktaliblna; Nrhnnl ilrln A Neore of Women Virllnia to a .tlal. ninn's Knlfe-Heven tiirln ."tabued In One lny. The women of the Fifteenth and Sixtoanth wards of Brooklyn have been in a terrible state of alarm for the past 6lx or eight weeks over tho outrages committed upon a number of young girls by a human vampire. Hismodoof opera lion has been to come up behlud the girls un awares, stab them in the face or back, aud then, before they have recovered from the shock, make his escape in tho darkness. Four cai-es of girls thus etabbed havo been reported to the police, but it is said that twenty or thirty other cases havo occurred of which no nport has been made. These outrages have all been committed early in tho evening, and iu the most public places, whero people are constantly passing, i'hus far every cllort to catch the rascal have proved futile. Naturally enough, the women are fearfully frightened, and the streets that were ouco tilled w ith girls on their evening promenades are now almost wholly deserted. Parents will not allow their daughters to go out during tho evening, unless nccompauied by a male companion, ami few grown-up women" are bold cuough to ven ture out unattended. There are hundreds of stories alloat In regard to the mysterious assasbiu. Some of tho women w ho are naturally superstitious believe him to be a supernatural being. A VKK1TAM.E IMP OF TIIR DEVIL. 1 hey sny he has never been 6eeu by mortal eyes, excipt lor an instant only; that he approaches his victims noiselessly, gives them a stab, and IheH ns uoiselessly vauhhes into the air. Chil dren liuteu to these stories with wondering eyes and bated breath, and they so work upon thoir joung imaginations that even their waking dreams are peopled with images of the demon. Many of them arc so frightened that they dare not venture into tho street after dark. Ono lady said she heard that there were SEVEN LADIES 8TAnBED ON SATURDAY NIGHT, and as many more on Sunday morning and eve ning. Probably this is an exaggeration, but the alarm is so great now that the women believe everything they hear about this terrible demon. Girls seldom go upon the street unaccompanied. Coming down Montrose avenue last evening, the Sun reporter met one only, and she shied out to the curbstone as if fearful that the reporter might be the terrible vampire seeking another victim. One evening last week a Mrs. Smith, living on Lee avenue, bad just left her bouse, when a man came up to her, grasped her by the wrist, and drew a razor. The lady saw the weapon, and gave a wild cry of affright. The man then let go his hold and made his escape. if one-half the stories told are true, there is an alarming state of affairs in Williamsburg, and the authorities owe it to themselves, as well as to the reputation of the city, to see that no stone is left unturned to clear up tho mystery. The aldermen of Brooklyn have authorized the Mayor to offer a reward of $250 for the arrest of this devilish scoundrel. N. Y. Sun of yesterday. BURKING OF A THEATRE. The correspondent of the Panama Mail, writing from Valparaiso on Dec. 10, says: The magnificent theatre in Santiago, erected by the municipality at a cost of 500,000, was totally destroyed by fire on Thursday night. Fortu nately the fire broke out after the audience, esti mated at considerably above 2000 persons, who had attended the Patti concert, had withdrawn, or a frightful loss of life would have resulted. The concert was brought to a close at 11 P. M., and the alarm was given at lljg. The fire broke out on the stage, and the flames seizing with frightful rapidity upon the cur tains, scenery, ropes, etc., soon converted that part of the building into an immense bonfire, and before the engines were in working order the whole of the Interior was a prey to the de vouring element. The exertions of the firemen were consequently directed towards saving the adjoining buildings, and they succeeded in their efforts so well that by 2 A. M. they were out of all danger. The part of the building in which the music and dresses were kept, and which was separated from the rest of the edifice by a pas sage and wall, fortunately escaped de struction. The Eafe was also saved. With regard to the origin of the fire several versions are being circulated. The lessee of the theatre, Senor Curitl, who with his family had a very narrow escape, says that on letting fall the cur tain a counterpoise of the same struck a gas tube and broke it, and on that account tho lights were all extinguished before the audi ence bad well left the building. A strong odor of gas being still observable, the lessee, in com pany with the light-tender, proceeded to ex amine with a light the subterraneans below the stage, when an explosion occurred, the impru dent lessee and his companion being severely burnt, while the flames shot up through the opentng and spread in the manner already described. MURDER AT TITUSYILLE. Hatchery Unparalleled Murdered for .Money The citizens of Titusvllle were throwa into a state of excitement on Saturday morning by the discovery of the body of a man named James H. Wlsner, lying at the south end of the Frank lin street bridge, iu a horribly mutilated condi tion. The Titusvllle Courier says, in its issue of Saturday: "About 1 o'clock this morning a son of Mr. Beebe, who lives at the south end of the Oil Creek Bridge, on Franklin street, got up to go to the refinery where he is employed. As he reached the end of the bridge he FOUND THE IIODY of a man lying dead, weltering in a pool of blood, with traces of blood along the footwalk of the bridge, and every evidence of a horrible murder having been committed. Near by was a large pool of blood, and near the centre of the bridge, on the footwalk, the snow was bespat tered with blood in a manner indicating that this was the spot where the struggle ensued. The pockets of the murdered man were turned inside out, giving evidence that the murderer's object was money. In his coat-pocket was fouud an envelope, having. on it the address of "James II. Wlsner," and in it a notification of the expiration of a life insurance policy on February 1, and signed by M. C. Tuttle. Through the address on the envelope, the murdered man was identified as being James II. Wlsner, and bis brother, who lived near by, on the south side of the creek, was aroused and notified of the murder. TUB BROTHER'S STOMY. From the brother of the murdered man we learn that for the past five weeks he bad been con fined to the house from sickness, having only been able to go out for the first time on Thurs day. He was twenty-five years old, and a widower, with one child, a Utile girl about five years ef age, who is living with his brother. Ho was also living with his brother, aud was at home at supper, ana mat was me last seen ot him by his family. He was a native of Ithaca, New York, and has been in Titusvllle a number pf years. At last accounts no clue to the murderer had been obtained. : HIPPINU. 1 11M.T.T a tirt dt-ij. . il3iiio finupm roit ni:w yoiiu, BAILING TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, AND SAT URDAYS AT NOON, are now receiving freight at winter ra',esr com mencing December 29.
