Vale, dietary Addrem, and Receiving theln lonors of Hi. Agne Aeadcmg, June 18, 18i4. How calm and beautiful she stood. Before the waiting crowd; While every eyo was fixed on her. As gracefully she bow'd. " The Barque of Life, well tried and true," And launched by oars strong. Was ably handled, well propol'd. And echoed as a song. Spell-bound, her hearers niUelesa sat, While down the stream of time. She bore them o'er the mountain orags, Grand, lofty and sublime! We followed in her airy flight. Each dell, and nook and bend; And wondered from her eagle flight. How she could well descend. Onward, and onward, atill she aoar'd, Above the worlds of light; Then mournfully, her voloe she lower'd. Soft as a dream of night. In teara waa hoard the Bad farewell; Teachers and comrades dear. Sat silently, with mositen'd eyes, To aad, by far, to cheer. HujU'd and still the audience sat. As from the stag at last. With flowing robes of spotless white. She calmly by them pass'd. Sadly before the crowd she knelt. Proud of her henora bright. While gently o'erher head was thrown, , The golden medal light. The medal, emblem of success,' Diligence and power. Suspended round her showy neck, A bright Jearel'd flower. The vestal queen at night array'd. In all her splendor bright, Conld net surpass this peerless maid, Crown'd with wreath of white. MRS. M. E. R. June SO, 187. CfciarUy. v. From the Boston Leader. The suicide of Miss Murphy, in New Haven, Conn., teaches a sad lesson. It appears she was a most industrious and worthy (firl, of a peculiarly sensitive na ture, and Bhe committed the rash act of self-destruction while smarting under the sense of being accused of theft. . It seems a (tirl employed in the Bhop with her had lost her ring, and Miss Murphy wore one which resembled it, and the girl at once accused her of theft. The foreman of the shop was appealed to, and the Murphy, girl, in lier pride, re fused to let htm see it. This was at once set down against her, and the poor girl, though innocent, resolved to die. This should be a caution against rash judg ment and accusation. Many a life has been olouded by a rash word, and suspi cion has darkened many a life and char acter. Simple robbery of the world's goods is but a feather compares to the robbery of a " good name. We do not envy the feelings of those whose course hurried this poor creature into the pres ence of Him who often revokes the judg ments of this world, and whose love compensates for its injnstice. Be chari table in thought as well as deei. The title of Duke of Connaught, be stowed on Prince Arthur, is not entirely new in the British royal family. Prince William Henry, a younger brother of George III, was created in 1764 Duke of Gloucester and also Earl of Connaught; and these titles passed to his son, the second duke of that creation, but be came extinct at his death in the year 1834 It is aUo not true that tbe pres ent is even the second instance of one of the royal family being directly con npptd with the sister kingdom bv an Irish title; for example, the Prince of Wales is Earl of Dublin, as waa his grandfather, the Duke of Kent; the late and present Dukes of Cumberland have always enjojed tbe title of Earls of Armagh; the late Duke of Cambridge was created Earl of Tipperary, and his son, the present Duke, still holds that Earldom; the Duke of Edingurg is Earl of Ulster; the late Duke of Sussex was also Baron Arklow, in the county of Wicklow; and the Duke of Clarence, afterward King William IV, was created Earl of Munster in 1789. MEMPHIS, TENN.: WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY 8, 1874. THE PASSENOEU TRAFFIC OF THE EKIE RAILWAY. The following'interesting article is copied from the American Railroad Manual for 1874, just published: In examining carefully the details of annual statement for year ending Sept. 30, 1873, the reader cannot fail to be struck with the large percentage of in crease in the passenger business on tbe Erie Railway, as compared with that of the other trunk lines, which are its com petitors for business. The appended statement will indicate very clearly the force of these remarks; and it will be further noted, by reference to the com parative statement of the source and movement of traffic, that the increase re sulted mainly from through and there fore competitive traffic: Average percent tago of iQcriaBei of Li net other! than Brie. Percentage of Decrease, 1873. Percentage of Increase, 187.1. - - - St .2 B 1- ? c w a S2 as k & O 5 & i. a 3a e. w " sa ISgH s .: 5 SS-5 a.! I CO o 2 O o a as o e o aa O H 3 C W &a 54 M la connection with these remarks on the passenger business of the Erie Rail way, it may be noted, that in 1873 ar rangements vfere made with the yarious steamship lines running between New York and Liverpool, or Glasgow, where by a system of prepaid orders, covering both ocean and rail passage, was inaugu rated; and, through the friendly co ope rntion of these various lines of steamers, numbering a fleet of 85 first-class steam ers, and whoBe agencies 15000 in number, may be found in every section of Europe, a very large increase of business will naturully be concentrated on the line tf the Erie Railway. The arrangement alluded to is not confined to emigrant travel, but embraces first and second class passengers; and the managers of he various steamship lines, forming what is termed the "North Atlantic Con ference," have issued circulars to their anona inoitlnor thpm t.n nse their active IB1 W-O, influence in furthering all the plans con templated by this agreement, it is weu known t hat the Transatlantic Steamship lines bringing emigrants to New York, have for years labored under one great disadvantage, as compared with the steamship linea landing their passengers at other Atlantic portB, namely: that the emigrant fares from New York to the West have been higher than from Quebec, Philadelphia or Baltimore; the result being that emigrants could be ticketed through from Liverpool to Chicago, via either, of these ports, at from one to tbree dollars less, per capita, than via New York an item of considerable impor tance. The Erie Railway Company, in making this arrangement, is working di rectly for the interests of the city with whose prosperity it is so closely identi fied; and it is believed that a mutual concession on the part of the railway and steamship lines, as indicated by the programme sketched out above, will inure very materially to an increase of the emigration to New York direct, and to the diminution of that class of travel, which, through certain economical in ducements, has, within the past four years, been attracted to Boston, Phila delphia and Baltimore. The through travel of the Erie Railway increased in 1872, 49,001 persons over 1870; and in 1873 gained 43,402 through passengers aver 1872. The Erie Railway, as now located, fur nishes the shortest" route between New York and Buffalo, being 23 miles shorter than that via tbe New York Central and Hudson River Railroad; and it is esti mated, that by reduction of grades and change of allignment, it is practicable to make the distance, to all intent and pur poses, some 25 miles shorter in time, if not in actual distance. With these short line advantages, and with through pas senger and sleeping coaches, carrying people upon terms of equality with other through lines, there is no reason why the revenue of the Erie Railway from pas senger business should not, within the next two years, amount to more than f 5,000,000 per annnm. In this connection, the promptitude with which passenger trains on the Erie have been run during the year is deserv ir.n rt nAn,m.nilDli.n A n official atntA- ! ment from the General Post Ollice De I partment shows that of tbe entire num ber of arrivals on time at New York of trnins carrying the United States Mail, the Erie Railway was 15 per cent, ahead of the Pennsylvania Railroad and 27 per cent, ahead of the New York Central Railroad a fact well worthy of the con sideration of travelers. Flrmlah Uorrors. An exchange observes that a Flemish jury must be able to bear almost any thing, if the reports of a recent murder trial are correct, for never was a more horrible scene presented in any court of justice. The accused was Charles Van Coppenolle, who was charged with the murder of his wife, by knocking her down stairs with a cleaver. Coppenolle had been married twice before, his first wife having "killed herself by falling down stairs also," and the second was abandoned. The third, to whom he was married only a few months before, pos sessed a little property, and it is sup posed that this led to her death. She was found at the foot of the stairs, quite dead, and with her head nearly split in two. Van Coppenolle was brought up for trial, and had to face the jury while the moBt startling pieces de conviction ever seen in a court-room were being ex amined. A painter had been employed to copy the staircase at tbe bottom of which the woman was fouud, and had imitated closely all the Bpots of blood found upon the walls. Bits of brain were also shown and examined with magnifying glasses, and, to crown all, the woman's head was brought in, and, in the presence of the prisoner, the cleaver was fitted into the wound. No one seemed to be greatly moved by this ghastly spectacle, and the prisoner least of all. Van Copponolle was found guilty and condemned to death. Authorities differ as to whether the best time to pick out a wife is during house-cleaning or on waBh-day. SPECIAL NOTICE. Uchknck's Ska Wkid Toxic In the atmos phere experienced here during the summer months, the lethargy produced by the heat takes away the desire for wholesome food, and friquent perspirations reduce bodily energy, particularly those suffering from the effects of debilitating diseases. In ordei to keep a na tural hea'.thful activity of the system, we must resort to artiflcial means. For this pur pose bhenck's Sea Weed Tonio is very effec tual. A few doses will create an appetite and give fresh vigor to the enervated body. For dyspepsia, it is invaluable. Many eminent physicians have doubted whether dyspepsia can be permanently cured by the druga which are generally employ-id for that purpose. The bea Weed Ionic in its nature is totally differ ent from such drugs. It contains neoorrosive minerals or aoi it; in fact it assists the regular operations of nature, and supplies her den cienoes. The tonic in its nature so much re sembles the gastric juice that it is almost iden tical witb that fluid. Tha gastric Juice Is the natural solvent which, in a healthy condition of the body, causes tbe food to be digtated; and when this juict is not excreted in suffi cient iuantities, indieestioa, with all its dis tressing symptoms, follows. The Sea need Tonio performs the duty of the gastric juice when the latter is deficient.
