AFRICAN EMIGRATION.
Ar.AVAL OF THI AZOR AT SIEBRA
Fearful Fatality on the Voyage.
IN. Y. Herald.]
CHABLESTON, 8. C., June 15.-The following
information was received here to-day at 10 a.
m. by the News and (burier from their spe
clal correspondent, A. B. Williams, concern
ift the voyage and arrival of the emigrant
ship Azor at Sierra Leone, on the west coast
of Africa:
8xaBsA Laoxw,
West Coast of Africa. May 19.
Via Madeira, Baturday, June 15, 17ss.
The Azor arrived hereto-day. For too many
of the hopeful emigrants who sailed from
Charleston on Easter Sunday the voyage has
been disastrous. Indeed, at one time there
was reason to fear that the Azor would be
nothing less than a floating charnel-house.
The first days of the voyage were wholly un
eventful. Capt Holmes organied a police
force and required every part of the vessel to
be kept clean. There was no grumbling at this.
The submission and docility of the emigrants
cannot be too highly praised. Soon, however,
the need of an experienced physician began to
be felt. Even before the Azpr sailed measles
had made its appearance, and this malady
spread rapidly.
PREVALENCE OF BsHIP FEVER.
This was not so bad, however, as the ship
fever, caused by the close confinement be
tween decks, the scanty accommodations,
and above all, by the want of water. The
asufferings of the emigrants were Intense.
They had not been accustomed to practice
selifdenial, and soon exhausted the limited
daily supply of water. There was great
waste, despite the efforts of the officers. The
fever spread rapidly, and before we reached
this point, which is a colonial settlement on
the west coast, belonging to Great Britain
twenty-three of our ill-fated emigrants had
died. I have never seen a sadder sight than
when their remains were committed to the
deep. The names of the dead will go to you
by the first mail steamer that touches at
this place. This dispatch I forward by way
of Madeira, from which point it will be sent
to you by ocean cable. My own health is
good.
Capt. Holmes has been unremitting in his
attentions to the immigrants. I cannot praise
his vigilance, thoughtfulness and judgment
too warmly. Despite the loss of life the im
migrants are in good spirits and filled with
joy at the prospect of soon reaching their
destination.
EXCITEMENT IN CHARLESTON.
The Azor left Charleston on the twenty-first
of April making the voyage in twenty-eight
days. The excitement among the negroes
here is intense, and immense crowds throng
the streets discussing the news. The officers
of the Liberian Exodus Association are by no
means encouraged by the result of the voy
age, and it is thought that the ardor of the
exodus movement will be much dampened
thereby.
SEVENTY-ONE AND NINETEEN WED.
With Wolse of Pan and Trumpet and a
Young Man Sues for Damages.
[New York World.l
Three years ago George Lewis became en
gaged to Miss Mary E. D. Marshall, both be
ng residents of Brooklyn, E. D. On Thurs
day night Miss Marshall was married to Mr.
Frank L. Dominick, a retired provision
dealer, seventy years old, and yesterday
morning Lewil applied for an order of arrest
against the bride. His affidavit alleges that
Mrs. Dominick is about to leave for Europe
ald as he has suffered great mental pain and
anguish and distress, he asks that $5000 dam
ee be given him and an order to prevent
rs. Dominick from leaving the country.
Judge Reynolds refused to grant an order of
arrest on the ground that there was no
authority for it under the new code.
Mrs. Dominick is nineteen years of age.
Lewis charges that after his engagement he
began saving money and giving it to her to
keep. The wedding was appointed to take
place on the twenty-third of February, 1877,
but at the request of Mies Marshall it was
postponed, and finally set aside altogether.
Towards the end of March last Mr. Dominick
advertised a piano for sale, and among those
who called to arrange for a possible purchase
of the instrument was Miss Marshall. After
the young lady had finished playing upon the
piano, Mr. Dominick informed her that never
before had he heard such sweet melody. Miss
Marshall called the following day at Mr.
Dominick's house, and upon returning home
confessed to her mother with some trepida
tion that she loved the septuagenarian. Lew
is demanded from Miss Marshall the money
he had given her, but the young lady, it is
said, denied that she had ever received it.
On the evening of the marriage crowds of
people assembled at the door of the Central
Baptist Church in Williamsburg, where itwas
celebrated, rattled tin cans, blew sh herns,
and made other demonstrations of pleasure.
After the ceremony had been performed by
Rev. Mr. Rodes, the bridegroom neglected to
kiss his bride. The young lady, however,was
les forgetful, whereupon a young girl
mountedon a chair cried out: "Oh, she kissed
him " This remark was loudly applauded.
with some difficulty the newly-marriedeouple
made their way to Mrs. Dominick's house,
where a reception was given.
.. . , " v .- . . .
T'omas Wmnans.
In his elegant villa at Brenton's Point, New
vort, on Monday last dled a man who might
be called an aristocrat, but who in life demon
strated the very crowning success of a life of
hard, honest labor. Forty years agohe was a
common machinist in his father's shop. Thos.
Winans was sent from America with railroad
supplies to the Osar Nicholas, who was or
ganizing the great railway system of Russia.
On his arrival at St. Petersburg the Czar
and a party of officials drove down to the
pier to see the ship unload. Thomas, a tall,
strapping young man, with trousers tucked
in his boots, and armed with a crowbar was
bossing a party of laborers who were unload
ing a locomotive. He worked and talked at
the same time, and his frank, open manner,
powerful physique and thorough knowledge
of his trade so impressed the imperial sight
seer that he turned to one of his officers and
said: "I like that fellow in the red shirt."
Thomas' rank in the expedition was thatof
practical engineer and machinist. As soon
as the work was well under way the Czar of
fered him an independent contract, telling
him at the same time that he need give no
bonds, as his simple word was sufficient.
From that time dated his fortune and re
markable career. From the close of his Rus
sian career up to the time of his death Mr.
Winans was absorbed na the study of new in
ventions of the most diverse and heterogene
ous character. His "cigar steamboat," mod
eled in the form of a cigar, was planned by
him during a temporary confinement, follow
ing an explosion of fireworks on his front
lawn on a Fourth of July. The panic of 18.57
left the three or four hundred workmen in his
locomotive works without employment. In
,stead of discharging them, Mr. Winans set
'them at work on the "cigar boat."
He was a man of the most charitable dispo
sltion, and was habitually given to the con
sideration of the good of his neighbor.
shot HRi Bride's Foot Off.
The Sidney (O.) Journal says: The strangest
of strange accidents, and one which might
have led to graver results, happened at the
residence of C. A. Flinn, near Houston, last
Friday night. Mr. and Mrs. Flinn, who were
but lately married, were awakened by a noise
which they thought came from under the
bed. Supposing burglars to be the cause,
Mr. Flinn jumped from the bed, got a shot
gun, and returned. Mrs. Flinn, all excite
ment, was just rising, and her right foot
hung over the betdside. Mr. (linn supposing
the moving foot to be the head of the intruder,
who was coming from his place of conceal
ment, without any ado or hesitancy, fired.
The wife screamed, and the husband flew
about in a delirium. A light was brought,
aid Mr. Flinn discovered that he had shot his
wife instesad of a burglar. Meanwhile, the
bed clothing caught lire from the discharge
of the gun, and was soon ablaze, but was
quickly extinguished. Mrs. Flinn had a large
part of her foot torn away, and was bleeding
profusely. It was tirstthought that amputa
tion of the whole foot would be necessary, but
it was afterwards found that three toes and a
portion of the side of the foot would suffice.
It was ascertained that no burglar was in the
houseatal.
