Mr. C.R. Morvill died yesterday of the
prevailing disease. Fast year he be?
came attached to the corps of the Dt**?
ocr?t; he made himself UBcful in ahnest
every department of the paper; attend?
ed to the telegraph, performed the du?
ties o/areporter,and occasionally wrote
editorials. Mr. Xorral was a native of
Lynchburg, Va. He was a mere child
when the war began, but a? soon as he
reached his? fourteenth year ho joined a
a Virginia artillery company in the Con?
federate service aud served therein un?
til the end of the war, Soon after the
war he left Lynchburg aud settled in
Cincinuatti, where he was engaged in
the tobaccco busincis. While in (,'iu
cinnatti he married, lived there aud in
C.vington until last year,?then he came
to Xew Orleans, and fini/ing husiuess
here, settled and wrote for his wife and
child to join him. He was well pleas?
ed with Xew Orleans,and had determin?
ed to makcjiis home permanently here.
When the fever came he uot olay re?
fused to leave, but had determined to
profler.hls services to the Howard Asso?
ciation. Beiug utterly UB.accliraatcd,he
was finally persuaded to give this idea
ip, but en l?verai occasions assisted in
riursiug frieuds and neighbors sick of the
fever. To this charity and philanthro?
py is doubtles due his death. Last Fri?
day he was taken sick. His illness aud
death wen; peculiarly sad. He aud his
child were attacked with fever withiu a
few hours of each other, together they
lay sick in the same bed, together they
died. The tie that bound them togeth?
er was unusally strong. Xorvell was a
devoted father, wrapt up in his boy;
the child, handsome, precocious extra?
ordinarily ileveloped for his age, was
glad to lie by his father. He liad often
expressed a desire to die at the same
tiiae with his father. Heaven granted
his prayer. The little boy expired yes?
terday morning, and the father, shocked
by the child's death,soon followed. "In
death they were not separated." He
leaves behind him a widow who has
shown her heroism in this terrible catas
| trophe, which tore from her husband and
her only child. With strength of mind
an? courage possessed by few she Hurs
e.l these, dearest ones, to the very
momeuts of their death, refusing her?
self to rest or sleep.
