Tlie I'u Knt Mntei Sblpplua- Company tu 1 mn til I ? Ii I,Ine* I'slng Mrumrr? of II? Own Fleet-lion H Will Uen' cfli .\ortolb. Air. W. H. Edye. agent In Norfolk of the United States Shipping Company, received word from New York head? quarters of this company yesterday, that about September a special line of steamers from Newport News to Rot? terdam and Amsterdam would be es? tablished by this company, sailings to be made fortnightly, and more fre? quently if necessary. The steamers will come to Norfolk to receive partial cargoes occasionally If demanded. The line already has a char? tered line of steamers from here to Rot? terdam und Amsterdam, and when the shipping from here to these ports can? not be handled by the steamers already doing this business, those of the special line will come here. The steamers to be put on the special Newport News-Norfolk and Rotterdam Amsterdam line will be of the com? pany's own fleet, now running between New York and Rotterdam and Amster? dam. The t'nited States Shipping Company now claims to maintain by far the best service b"tween the States and Holland, and It Is probable that this riew line win become one of the'most Important lines operated by this company. The company has ihre? twin screw steamers of 12.040 tons capacity, und three others, exact duplicates, l>"ing constructed, which will be put on this line, if all are needed. While this service will benefit New no: t News directly, it is also expected lhat larger quantities of flight will go from this port on UCCOUnt of better shipping facilities, short? trips and a y low rate of insurance on uoods because of lite, especial seaworthiness of the steamers; Tbc- Chesapeake and Ohio piers will be used In Ncwpr.rt Newa by Ihe steamers. A DAMAGE SUIT. WIDOW OP JAM ICS H. steward asks port $10000. A suit for $10,000 damages was enter? ed against the Old Dominion Steam? ship Company.yesterday, growing out of the binning of the steamship North? ampton last summer. The libel was en lerod in the l'nlted Slates Court before Clerk George E. Bowdeh by Mrs. Mary Steward, widow of James H. Steward, who was steward of the Ill-fated North? ampton. Servlfe of the libel was ac? knowledged by the Old Dominion Steamship Company, nntl Mr. Crowell. agent of the line, gave the necessary bond before Mr. Botvden. The Northampton was an Old Do? minion steamer and tame in with an excursion one Saturday evening last summer. Her steward. James H. Steward, slept aboard her that night, and eaily Sunday morning she caught on lire and was destroyed before she could lie saved. The steward was burned to death aboard her, and it is for this that Mrs. Steward sues the com pa ny. When the Northampton caught on. lire she was at thp Old Dominion Com? pany's pier, and the conflagration on that Sabbath morning is well remem? bered by many Norfolk people. Fort? unately no other vessels, nor the dock, was burned. AN ELOPING COUPLE. A NORFOUK YOUNG COUPLE WED? DED AT SUNBURY, N. C. Mr. \V.

OUR CONFEDERATE DEAD. The following lines were suggested to : the writer upon viewing the erection of tho monument to "Our Confederate Dead" in Commercial Place. This granite shaft is proudly raised in memory of our honored dead; V>'h?> died like Spartans on the battle plain. And now who sleep?so softly tread. 'Tis a Cenotaph to the valorous son.-, Who bravely followed the peerless Lee; Over the river they've passed to rest, No more to answer the reveille. Though Valor's sword has long been sheathed, Entwined with laurel and with bay; On Memory's tablet the South has tra< ed Its 1ovo for those who wore the Cray. Xo "storied urns" need proclaim. The fame of those of Southern birth; A lit her heritage, is ours to own. Their matchless courage and modest worth. Norfolk, Va.. May 20. -jo.
