Ill* Di-nllt Reunited From tho Pro mlacnona Ki cluing lleiiri-eii the 'BUS Men In Korlolh iiiwi on Hump ion lload? Mondny Klsh?, There was scrapping galore Monday night on the docks, and although no ar? rest* were made, the planks ran gore from the list lent, shocks, where boat? men in battle engaged. 'Twas a long drawn light, lasting over an liour, ami tlie ?crapper? numbered seven. Fight followed tight, with blows in a shower, and ended with honors even. The stun of the llnlsh was a captain badly cut ami a IIreman nearly killed, if it may not yet prove quite a murder in Iiis case. i IOW IT BEGAN. It seems that the engineer of tlie tug Covlngton had a Mend, Mr. Alonro Ucale, call on him at tie boat while she lay at Pettit'.? dock. While they were standing talking El reman I treat, of the Covlngton, slightly the worse for bav? in:? met several convivial friends, came down the dock, and in passing the two knocked oh' Beale's hat. An argument started, which ended in blows, and the engineer took his frlend'e part. As result Fireman Brent got a severe lbrushing. This started the trouble. The tug .1. C. Hill lay at the dock next nearest the ferry, and a brother of the Covingtbn's lireman, who was punished, runs on thi.s boat. He at once came over to see why 'hi.-i brother had liven whipped, got into a hot argument, and turning to severely pummelled tlie vis? itor, while his brother fireman No. l thrashed tlie engineer. So badly was tlie engineer getting beaten up that Captain Mcllorney, of the tug Mary? land, came on the scene, took a hand in the tray, and when he got through with Fireman llrent. of the Covlngton, in- was fairly well satisfied, LEFT TOWN SINGING. All this happened while the police were relieving each other, about 6:10 p. in. When th.- night police heard of tin- row and went to look up the mat? ter th-- men all bundled aboard the tug Maryland and pulled out for Berk ley, singing. "Good-bye, my honey: Good-'bye, my baby! Good-bye, my rag? time girl!" in derision of the Officers. They got away all safely, and the Maryland pulled a barge into tlie ft ream from Herkley and then came back to the dock. No sooner had the Govlngtoh men gotten on the dock than another of that tug's men and Fireman Brent, who started the fun, pitched in? to ihe engineer of the Covlngton and gave him whipping No. 'J. He called for Captain Mcllorney, of the Mary? land, who quickly responded, and gave Brent whipping No. 3. CAPTAIN HORNET Cl'T. Starting to go bad; to his own bnat, Captain Mcllorney (incautiously cross? ed the Covington's stern, and as lie did so the colored cook stepped out and slashed him across the back with a razor, the cut extending across the back below the shoulders and being re? ported by the authority for the above and what follows, as a nasty, severe cut. This ended the Maryland's cap? tain's Share of tlie evening's entertain? ment. THRASHED Till: COOK. The mate of tlie Covlngton here took a hand, thrashed the cook ami dis? charged him on the spot -another done for. In the meantime It.-ale had dis? appeared, ami ihe curtain rang down on hie, specialty. Tin.' engineer's troubles, however, were inn done with. He took OS much killing as a dim,- novel detective. A FATAL ASSAULT. The Covlngton started on a trip up Che bay, but had me. traveled far to? ward Hampton Roads, when Fireman I tie!.: was struck over the head by tlie engineer with a monkey-wrench?down and out in one round. So badly was tin- fireman hurt, according to inform? ant, that the tug had to put in at old Point and land him, putting him under a doctor'* care. From there lie was taken to a hospital or, it was ho re? ported, at least; and rumor says he has since died of Ills injuries. Tili: COVINGTON CAUGHT. Yesterday afternoon Mr. .1. T. Brent mid son; George, wer.- informed by the Norfolk oillclals that Hire,, revenue cutters from Norfolk, Baltimore and New Voik were in pursuit of the tug. and as soon as overhauled it would be brought back to Norfolk, ami aske.i Mr. Brent if he had heard anything from his sin, whereupon George, a brother of Brent, went to old point. Newport News and Hampton in search of his brother, but without finding or hearing anything of his whereabouts. He re? turned and told the Norfolk officials of his search, and they Informed him that l.is brother was on tin- tug serving his tegular watches and that, the tug had been overhauled by th,- New York rev? enue CUttcr, and that the cutler Would arrive here sometime last night with the tug (!ovlngton in tow.

W. II. .'V ward?, pastor of Centenary M. lv. Church, has been appointed presiding elder of the Norfolk District Virginia Conference M. IS. Church, .South. This action has been taken after ma? ture deliberation by Bishop Alpheua W. Wilson, i>. l>.. L.L, 1>., \v>ho realises the sad fact that the condition of Rev. A. (.!. Brown, D. 1)., is such aa to pre? clude all possibility of tibi ever being able to perform the duties of tins odlcc, to which he was assigned by Bishop Hargrove at tiie last session of the conference held in Portsmouth. The bishop, in his letter to .Mr. Ed? ward?, which was received yesterday, gives this as the grounds for making the appointment: .Mr. Edwards is perhaps one of the best equipped ministers in the con? ference for the place. He is possessed of line administrative ability, is a thorough Creek and Latin scholar, and a preacher of rare gifts, lie has been in the active itineracy for i'.l years, during win ih time he lias filled a num? ber of the best stations in the con? ference. Ho is now closing up hi.* third year at Centenary Church, where ins preaching and pastoral visits are treasured a.s a benediction, and where he is unusually beloved. The church will deeply regret to give him Up. It is not known at this writing how Mr. Edwards will provide for his pul? pit, but it is learned thai Bishop Wilson will give him an assistant from now unt ! the meeting of the next annual conference. Mr. Edwards a short time aco was tendered the presidency of a college in Alabama, but gracefully declined the honor, preferring to continue in the active ministry in his own conference. l'rf piirliii; n New I'ri'nli] icrlnn 11.VIIIii n I.
