Arri. 10.—70 the Kditor and
many readers of The State Journal:
I am pleased to drop this note to your
most valuable journal to inform you
that we are alive. We live in a
dusty, smoky region, by the side of
the beautifnl Susquehanna, and in the
historical Wyoming valley. We have
three churches here ; one is the I'res
byterian, with Rev. L. W. Miller at
its head ; the other is the A. M. E.
Church, with the Rev. A. Palmer for
its pilot; the third the A. M. E. Zion
Church, with the Rev. D. L. Wash
ington as its leader. 'We have quite
a small number of Christians in this
city. There are about two hundred
communicants in all of the churches
together, and about three hundred
church going peopie in all three of
the churches. QOur churches here in
this city are small. The A. M. E.
Church is the largest at present, and
it will mot seat over two huundred and
twenty-five persons at its utmost. Bat,
we are glad to say, that the Rev. D.
L. Washington, pastor of the A. M.
E. Zion Church, informed me (and
the modle has been drawn and_the
work will soon begin) to build a brick
church at a cost of four or five thou
sand dollars. I must here say that
the Rev. D. L. Washington is a
young man, and is as deep as the sea.
He is full of energy. He is one of
thcse will men and full of patience.
We are sorry to learn that the Rev.
L. Miller will leave us. We are ‘
sorry to cur heart to lose such a gen
tleman and minister s Mr. Miller.
Be it assured that the Rev. Mr. Miller
has warm friends in this our coal
region.
The Rev. A. Palmer, of the A. M.
E. Church, has done a great work in
this city, and is now about to build a
parsonage in the rear of the charch.
It will be quite nice. |
We are moving along as well as
can be expected We, as a people,
should be united, if we desire to ac
complich anything. But when we
see our elders and preachers stand so
far apart, it causes us to stop and
wonder. I should think that a hint
to the wiseis sufficient. It has never
been so until this year, and it causes
my heart to ache to see our elders
and ministers do this. Wil you set
un example for us?
Yours Respectfully,
OAL

111. They arrived in time to see her
breathe ker last. She was a very
bright and intelligent child and the
friends of the family extend their
heart-felt sympathy in this their sad
bereavment.
Coxcerr Ecnoes.—The total ab
sence of stage fright among the ac
tors and singers was one of the
remarkable features of the entertain.
ment. There are four amateur dra
matic associations in our city and all
of them are first class, but it is the
expressed oppinion of a great many
that the Aldridge Dramatic Associa
tion is second to none of them. The
Duo ¢ Happy Moments” was beauti
fully sang and heartily applauded.
The deep and mellow voice of our
young Basso profundo was greatly
admired. The comic song ““The Man
of many Names ” was weli rendered.
The Solo, ¢ Reign of the Roses” is
a very pretty song and was very
prettily sang. Mr. John A, Fry, the
“old reliable” basso was in his glory
‘that pight. A concert in Reading
without him, would be like the play
of Hamlet without the Hamlet. The
two “Sammys” were immense. The
young widow looked well, sang well
and acted well. Miss Ida as the
daughter, was charming. Harry
performed the part of the villian first
class. Gibson in the part of Mark
Ashton, made his mark. Miss Tillie
Strattan carried off the honors. She
has no equal in this city as an ama
seur Commedienne. The Keystone
boy’s “took the cake’ 'for selling tick
ete. Nett proceeds of concert $1.75.

Ike, as he was famiharly known,
roamed about the country and was a
noted baojoist. He was dissipated in
his habits, and only enjoyed for a few
weeks the fortune which bis mother
left him. He died without a will.

Shaw Post, 206, took place at their
new quarters, in Eareka hall, Arthur
street, Fridiy evening, April 4. The
hall was beautifuly decorated with
evergreens and flags. Post Com
mander W. T. Barks delivered the
welcome address to the visitors and
members of brother posts G. A. R.
Miss Johns read a selection entitled
the ¢ Fire Alarm.” The Rev. T. J.
Smith followed witk a witty address.
Miss R:ndolph read a selection, fol
lowed by Comrade Dawson, of Post
157, in an eloquent address. The
next was a declamation by Mrs. Nan
nie Grinage. Mrs. Fannie Sims read
a poem, -entitled “The Roll Call,”
with effect and pathos. Mr. George
Sherrow sang a solo entitled “The
Ship that Never Returned.” Mr.
Carson and C. A. Jones were called
upon, and made a few remarks, that
met the approvsl of the sudience.
Mr. L. Ramer, by request, sang a
golo which brought him an encore.
The rest of the evening was taken
up very pleasantly in discussing the
viands which had been so bountifally
provided by the Post.
The faneral of Mr. George Scrog
gins, formerly of Baltimore, Md.,,
took place from his residence, at
Avery College, Allegheny City, De
ceased was T 3 years of age. He
leaves a wife and one grown up son,
’ost 206, G. A. R, of which he was
a member, attended the funeral.
Mr. Thomas Johnson, who died
last week in Minneapolis, Minn., was
buried from Brown’s chapel, Monday
afternoon. The Rev. Al Grant, of
Salem, Otio, preached his funeral
sermon.
Mr. aud Mrs. Gamble, of Enoch
street, lost their infaut daughter, after
a short iliness.
Mrs. Fannie Sims, Mr. Barks and
others will give several performances,
commencing April 15, at Eureka hal},
Arthur street. The proceeds are to
be appropriated for the purpose of
helping the colored people of Yank
ton, Dakotah, to secure a place of
worship. The object is a worthy
one and deserves thpe patronage of
all who believe that the enzign of the
Great Messiah should be the pioneer
of modern civilization.
Mr. Wm. Stabbs aod Miss Emma
Palmer were united in the holy bonds
of wedlock on Thursday evening,
Rev. Geo. B. Knox officiating. Mr.
Stubbs is one of our progressive
young men, and has set an example
which is worthy of emulation. He
hss displayed excellent judgment in
selecting a wife, for we think that in
all those qualifications which ere es
sential to make home pleasant and
happy, Miss Palmer is the peer of
any lady in the land. May their
shadows never grow less.
- Mr. Cyrus Lovett was married on
Thursday evening to Mrs. Emma
Johnson, nee Woodson. The cere
mony tcok place at the residence of
the bride's mother, Mrs. C. Wood
son, of Webster street. The recep
tion was held at the residence of the
groom and bride, on Scott street, at a
later hour. The presents were both
numerous and costly, but as it would
occupy too much space we refrain
from itemizing them, as people gen
erally all imitate each other in select
ing presents that are more ornamental
than useful, for in all my experience
I have never known a bride to be
presented with a wash-tub, broom or
other useful implements of house
wifery.
Mayor Fulton wa3i sworn in on
Monday, and on Tuesday morning
the announcement of the names of
those who had drawn prizes was an
nounced. The following colored men
received appointment under the naw
administration, and if they are not
all assigned to duty it will be their
own fault: James C. Delphy, Wm.
T. Barks (turn-key), Enwright
Beckett, Chas. Smith, John IH. John
son, Robert Bagley, C. A. Jones, E.
J. Harris, Paul J. Carson, Henry
Meyers; lamp-washer, John W.
Moore; patrolman, W. Higates.
This result shows that we are making
some political progress under the
municipal regime. The last Repub
lican mayor made an innovation upon
the old established custom by ap
pointing E. J. Harris turn-key. A
Democratic administration followed.
It saw the turn-key and went one
better by appointing one policeman.
The next mayor (dem.) appointed
three policemen and a turn-key. At
the last election the sceptre was re
stored to the Republican party, and
Mayor Fulton and his immediate
fricuds haye shown their appreciation
of the loyalty of our people by sp
pointing twelve of them to positions
upon the force.
Fred. Douglass will attend the Pitts
burg conference.

Johnson, the well known trainer and
owner of Blue Grass trotters at Lex
ington, was murdered last night by a
colored man named George Jones
Johnson trained Lady Mack, and for
many years was well known over all
the trotting circuits. He was a broth
er of Rachie! Johnson, the aetress,
who marricd Barney McAuley.
Johnson has been training three of
his tro ters here at the fair grounds,
and yesterday afternoon on his way
to the track hestopped ata saloon for
a drink. Two colored men volua
teered to hold his horse, and Johnson
paid only one of these. The other—
Jones—became enraged and hurled a
stone at Johnson, who was strack
under the ear and a large hole made
in his skull. Singular enough he did
not then digcover the serious nature.
of the injury, and, against the advice
of friends, continued to walk about.
He went to the grand stand of the
fisir ground course, where he fell
unconscious, and was found there
at night- He never railed, and died
at midnight. The murderer dis
appeared, after making the assault

CUBAN FILIBUSTERS,
A Colored Man'’s Story of Aguero’s
Raid on a Cuban Plantation.
Key Wesr, Fla, April 6 —The
gschooner Shoters arrived here last
| night, passing two revenue cut-tevst
and the flagship Tenuessce, and pro- “
| ceeding to the upper harbor, where
- she wag seized by Collector Wickur, ‘
"who placed inspectors on- board and
| this morning hoisted a revenue flag
at the masthead There wers three
persons on board the schooner, two
colored men and a Cuban. The col
ored man in charge said that he was
engaged to pilot the Shoters to Cape
Florida, and that on rounding Fort.
Taylor, Aguero, with a drawn pistol,
told him that he must take the party
to the Cuban coast. On apprcaching
the Cardenas, Aguero directed the
pilot to land abreast of a plantation
then in sight, where horses could be
procured. This was done and the
party reached the beach.
The pilot then put to sea, but before
getting clear of the land he saw an
extensive fire, and thinks the plan
tation burned. The man’s story is
doubted.
The ciptain of the revenue cutter
George S. Boutwell took the three
men from the schooner this morning.
It is evident that the Spanish consul
has discovered through his detectives,
and trasmitted to Washington, more
information than is possessed by the
Federal officials here, and it is re
gretted here that the Trea ury De
partment communicated with the rev
enue cutter at Cedar Keys instead of
instructing the collector of this port.
Reports vary regarding the number
of filibusters, it being stated at from
twelve to twenty. The Shoters is
said to have a small number of car
bines on beard.

momd, Va, in July, A committee

ing its absence a discussion arose on
the candidates for the Republican

the speakers declared that the nomina
tion of Blaine will cause the majority
of the colored voters to cast their bal
lots forthe Democraticnominee. The
claims of Grant, Lincoln, and Logan
were favorsbly spoken of. The reso
lutions condemned the action of the
Maryland Legislature for its refusal
to pass an act to permit colored law
yers to practice in the courts of the
State, as well as other acts affecting
the colored population, and they were
adopted. A resolution declaring Lo
gan the choice of the colored voters
of Maryland was rejected. Twelve
delegates were then selected to go to
Richmond, and the body adjourned.
Office holders were not permitted to
take part in the proceedings. =

committee appointed to investigate
the alleged charges of ill-treatment
by Brother Wm. Taylor of his family,
beg permission to report that we held
a meeting for éaid purpose on the

the said charges, and from all the
evidence obtained from -attending
physicians, Brother Henry Robinson,
Mre. Robinson, Mrs. Brown and Mrs.
Washington, we find from the testi

that the charges are false and hurtful
to Brother Taylor, and we believe
him to be free from all blame, and is
deserving of our respect and should
have our defense against such ma
licious charges.
Very respectfully submitted, in
