Iysterious Abandoiznneast of a
Youiag Lady.
Soen two weeks since a young girl
acpapred at the Third District Station
di in Court-street, and informied
the' flicers that she arrived in this city
that daty, roin Peekskill, with her
nele,JWilliam Hague-and that on
landing- froni the boat at Hamilton
avenue forry, he left ner promising to

og r some hours, she made known
the fact to a policeman, who took her
to the Station House. Here site rela

0an'Orden, taking c6ipassion <n her,
toqk her to his home, she deported her
self in-jin unexceptionable manner. She
stted that she arrived in Nev York
from., larleston, South Carolina, some
days previous; hertfather having died
about a month before, and her Imother
beiig dead also, her uncle sent word
for her to come North and make his
.house her future home. When she
arrived at Peekskill (she had mistaken
~tie iame-it should have been Fish.

hefoll~ow.ing. morning they departed
in a steamboat for New York, for the
* ,ostensible purpose of visiting some
Arriving in Brooklyn, she was aban
-doned as above stated. Capt. Camp.
bell being anxious to ascertain the
7truth of her-statement, took her to
Peekskill, and there, accidentally, met
man who. had seen the girl take a
"boat aV tbe Fishkill landing in compa
ny with her uncle. They consequently
proceeded to Fishiill but could ob.
.tain no further information about him
than that such a man had lived there
and was a widower; but where he had
romdved to no one seemed to know.
Thii'ugh the influence of Justice King
of this city,.a home was procured for
- the girl at Mr. Van Wick's, who re
sides on a farm about six miles from
I]ishkill, where the girl now is and ap.
en very woll atisfied. Her father,

prOrty in 'ou&th GCarotina, and she

a ~reston, having died sonie time
ago. - In case of her death, it is provi

enearest relative, which is the uncle; and
if the girl's story is true. this latter
c onsideration might have had some
thing to do wvith her abandonment in a
-large city and among entire strangers.
Mr. Van Orden rece.ived a let ter from
her a day- or two ago in which she ex
pressed her thanks to the filunily for
the interest they took in hier behalf.
The letter is indicative of a cultivated

Our readers will remember that the
first accounts published of the loss oh

wiihinelgence was received that
25 persons, including the captain, a
portion of the crew, and some of her
passengers,. ha~d been picked up at sea.
By the steamier Conway we receive our
files of Nassau papers, fromt whieb we
perceive~~that'104 of the emigrants
were saved by a *wreckidg schooner,
as~ britly not:.ed in the News of' yes

loss of the ship we take fromi the Ba.

The American ship "William and

Tise Presbyter ai Assenbies. I
The Genesal Assemblies .of' both
branebes of' the Presbyterian Church
have 1meen in session fto the past eight '
or den days-that of the New School
at enulado, New York, and the Olda
School Assembly at Philadelphia. We i
have given occasional abstracts of the
more prominent transactions of the I
latter body, as they aee ofsome inter
est to a number of our readers.
In the Old School Assembly, on
Saturday last, the most important, busi.
ness transacted was the location of the
p~rop.osed new Western Sem inary,
which, as will he seen frora the
proceedings aunnexed, was fixed at
Danville, (Ky.) We extract the follow.

lie adyamitted that Peoria was a
most delightful spot, bat thiere' 1
were circuninstandes wvhich would
preclude the practicability of locating
the Seminay at that point, lie con

of' Peoria was a dead letter'. St. Louis
had stronger claims by far, but he on

tile Synod of' Missouri, was unmwilling
to admit that his Sy rod was divided
upon the slihuj ect.
Dr. Beckenrmidge was satisfied from
circmstances that theie as a divis

is urged, is ie thet that Lane Semiiary

In the New. School Assembly, on

he Slavery question arose. A series of
esolutions were reported - by th
ipecial Coin ttee, recommending the
ppoirnent of a committee of four
'om as many slave-holding Synods,-to

Dr. Ross, of Tennessee, warmlv op.

Iso warmly opposed the matter. Quite
n angry discussion arose towards the

;rew much heated. Eventually the
ubject was postponed, amid mnueh
xcitement until Monday.
It will be seen from this, that
luflftlo is a dangerous place, even for
eligious bodies to discuss the slavery
luestion, and the New School brane'h

tum ife, .We determ ined last week- 'i
company with a filed to pay a visit
to the town of:M l6n, 'which' the don
venienees.of the trave,l 6fforde4 by the
Wilmington' and Manchester Railroad
has placed within, what the-spirit,-of
the age might call, " a jump" of' this
place. Ou/' tri'p wtis to us productive
of profitr and much - pleasure, and -it
will be long before time can wash
from our heartsj the kind hospitrlity
and hearty welcome we met with from
the citizens of Marion. Some things
too of general importance and interest
we learnt, which we are disposed to lay
before the' readers of lti' "'Sumter
Banner ;". but it is a ratd'lask, and
we are not disposed in these hot days,
to undertake the task of separating the
chafl from the whdat, so gentle reader
we give you all ; sift it as you please.
Leaving the Sumierville depot 10u the
Wilmington and Manehester train of
ears, at a qarter past four o'clock we
enjoyed a delightful ride of three hours
duration over a very smooth road, and
in one of the best cosekes we have ev
er sat inl, our time alternately enjoyed
in the cotversation of our fellow trav
ellers, and the desiriptioi of the coun
try, and different stopping places, which
was kindly afforded us by the Condue
tor of-the train, to whom we shall ever
be imxlebted for his patience and cour.
tesy, and while o this subject we
might as well congratulate tirc diiec
tors of the road on the choice of the
two gentLemen who conduc the trains
on this end; we think another such
two- wouYd be difficult to find: ever on
the alert and watchful of the comfort
of the passengers, and ready at the
sound of the whistle, (our attention was
partieularly called to- tliese things by a
friend) they are yet willing at any
time to lend. a patient car to what
might seem' tiroublesomne questions,
and to grant desirredinibimation. This
is their due, and as we- agree-with 9"r
friends of the Watchman ii' te-pro
priety of the old dictuma; to " give tite
devil his due " we don't see why cta.
ductors should not have their's also.
At 7 o'clock we arrived at the termin
us of the Railroad, and within two miles
of Lhe Pee Dee River, cre together

tion that McAsiaa and his roads were
not better appreeiated in the country
we were r~~minaded that it was in this
very swamp that MAUIos feasted the
British officers on baked potatoeis; this
had a soothing effect, nd in the con
templaitioni of the trials, and troubles
of those iron hearts whose patient suf
fering lends such lustre to the Ameri
cau Revolution, we forgot our petty.
cnres, anid falling into a gentle dose
were not awakened until the bright and
cheerful light of BlnowN's hlotel at
Marion flashed in our faces. An ex
cellent supper was in waiting, which
restored our drooping spirits, and pro.
paredl us for a comfurtable nap, which
in our hearts we vowed should last
some goodly hours after sunrise on the
morrow, but alas ! " Mana proposes and
God disposes ;" however in this case,
we believe tihe Militia system of South
Carolina had moure to do with the de
str'uctior a of our calculations thani any
thing else, and, well ; never mind ; we
will let the militia alone now ; sufhi
cient be it for us to say as an excuse for

from our slumbers at dawn of day by
the roar of the artillery which was in
