"These historic robes, although not less than three qmrters of a century old, are in a good state of preserva tion, and were worn yesterday, by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Quiotarci, while officiating at the baptism of the in fant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Peck. "Dr. Gray received from another grxnd-daughter of the Bishop, Miss Anna Croes, of New Jersey, the copy of the Ordinal which belonged to him, beariug theilate MDCCCXCII1 and therefore just a century old. fhirt book was used by Dr. Gry at his consecration to-day.

He was advanced to the priesthood on Ascension D y of the following year in St. Peter's Church, Columbia. "The first eighteen months of his ministry were spent in the mission ary work of West Tennessee. He has had but two parishes, St. James Church, Bolivar, where hespentover twenty years, and the Church of the Advent, N ishville, where he hs been for nearly twelve years. "While in Bolivar he built St. James Church and rectory, founded St. James Hall, a school for girls, and built St. Philip's Church for colored people. ' During his rectorship of the Church of the Advent the debt has been removed, the church completed and consecrated as "a free church for ever." "The degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred upon him by his alma matter in 18S1. "Dr. Gray has been twice married. His first wife was Miss Maggie Locke Trent, daughter of the late Dr. W. II. Trent, of Lagrange, Tenn. His present wife whs Miss Fannie Camp bell Bowers, daughter of the late Rev. Wm. Varner Bowers, of Phila delphia.

DIN Has Tet Been Received of the Overdue Umbria. The Vessel's Fate Remains a Mys tery of the Deep. Seafaring Men's Theories Give Little Comfort. FTHEIR IR8T THOUGHT IS THAT SHE HAS BEEN LOST BT STRIKING ONE Or THE SEVERAL KNOWN DERELICTS. Probably She la Disabled and is Doing; All She Can with the Small Area of Sail She Carried, or Is In Tow of Some Other Vessel Possibly She Has Gone to the A tores or Has Drifted Far Out of the . Usual Track of Transatlantic Lines by the Force , of the Heavy Northwest , Winds The Greatest Anxiety Prevail ing Oi er Her Non-Arrival. London, Dec. 80. The anxiety felt for the safety of the Canard line steamer, Umbria, increases. The com pany have no information to give be yond that contained in the newspapers, but the officials give reassuring replies, declaring they have perfect confidence in the seaworthiness of the steamer and the seamanship of Captain McKay, her commander. But the long delay causes apprehen sion that can not be allayed by conjec tural statements. A disarrangement of THE UMBH1A. the machinery, a broken shaft or a lost propeller would be sufficient reason for the delay. The sail area of the Umbria is very small, and progress under canvass would be necessarily slow; it would be much slower if a dragging screw had to be hauled through the water. With her long freeboard the vessel would be bound to mpke more or less leeway, and with the northwest winds prevailing at this time ot the year her drift would be to the southward and out of the lane routes of transatlantic navigation. That the steamer could be handled under canvas is not questioned, but the fears for her safety are based on other grounds. There are several derelicts afloat in the north Atlantic route, and one or two of them have been reported by in coming vessels as being dangerous ob structions to navigation. To seafaring men, who know the dangers presented by this class of wreck almost the first thought is, when a steamer is long over due, that she has struck a derelict just awash. To collide with such an ob stacle is like striking a'rock, and the consequences of such a mishap are more likely to prove serious to the vessel that rnns into them. The Umbria might, in case of acci dent, have borne away for the Azores, and made a fair wind of what had been a head one, but had Captain McKay followed this course the Umbria should have been reported from the Azores ere this. It may be that the steamer, hav ing blown far out of her course, has at tempted to make Bermuda. The underwriters at Lloyds look upon the Umbria as an extra hazardous risk, Wednesday reinsurance was effected on her at lhe rate of twelve guineas pre mium, which is rather a high rate, but Thursday morning twenty guineas wore demanded. Some reinsurance was ef fected at this latter rate, and this in itself is a good indication of the anxiety felt in business circles. Later Thurs day twenty-five guineas were de manded. Old steamship men, discussing the probability of the Umbria's having struck a derelict, say that even if such were the case her compartments would keep her afloat unless she struck in each a manner as to tear her side out near the engine room. Whatever the cause of the non-arrival of the Umbria, it can truthfully be said that the anxiety and apprehension for her safety grows deeper and more in tense as hour after hour passes and no report of her is received. A large num ber of the relatives of those aboard of her have left instructions at Lloyds and the cable offices to be immediately in formed as soon as the news of the steamer is received. In an interview Thursday, Mr. Pat ton, the London manager of the Inman line, declared that he did not feel the least anxiety for the safety of the Um bria, adding that he would not feel wor ried if he had half a dozen friends aboard of her, and she was out a week longer. He said there was no doubt that her engines had broken down, and that some other steamer had her in tow. The chances of her being spoken had been lessened by the withdrawal of steamers of the Inman, Ouion and North Ger man Lloyd lines from the transatlantic route. The manager of the Cunard line ex pressed views similar to those of Mr. Patton, and said he felt no anxiety whatever for the steamer. The last time a Cunarder was overdue for any considerable length of time was in 18H4 when the Servia was nine days late in arriving, owing to the overheat ing of her crank pin and brasses which necessitated repeated and long con tinned stoppage or the engines. Those having friends on the steamer take what consolation they can from the statements of the managers, but it must be said that their comforts are small, as managers are known to always take an optimistic view of the situation when the safety of their vessels is at issue. ensures for the 1'mbrla.

V umh luty " J i Wowing their whistlesevery Jtwo min NO TIDINGS utes for days at a time. At this season of the year it is rarely possible to see a quaiter of a wil ahead, sometimes not one hundred yards ahead. It is next to impossible to' r.void colliding with any object ahead, and the Cunarders are run on the theory that the safest thing to do is to drive ahead at the rate of twenty-two or twenty-three miles an hour, and demolish and sink any vessel that can not be escaped, and so lessen the injury to the Cunarder. The Um bria is one of the two flyers of the line managed on this theory. All smaller vessels keep out of her path, but still there are many foreign ships crossing the so-called northern lane, and it is among the probabilities that the Umbria has been disabled by one of these. Her sails are practically useless in high winds, and with their use alone she could not make port in three weeks. Those who know some thing of ocean travel have good reason to believe that the Umbria has met with some accident. The Oregon, the finest Cunarder of her time, went to the bot tom some years ago. SHE WAS SIGHTED SUNDAY In a Disabled Condltlou About SOO Miles from Nova Scotia. New York, Dec. 80. The steamship Galileo (British), Captain Jones, late Coleman, from Hull, Dec. 11, with mer chandise, arrived at her barjtt 4 a. m. Thursday. She had a continuation of west, northwest gales and high head seas throughout the passage, with fre quent snow squalls. On Dec. 16 Captain Coleman was taken ill, and died on the 19th from valvular disease of the heart. He was bnried at sea on the 20th, during a northwest gale. On Dec. 25, at 5 p. m., latitude 52:52, longitude 58:55, sighted a large steamer bearing northwest, apparently disabled. The Galileo bore close to her and she exhibited three red lights, showing that she was unmanageable, but not requir ing assistance. Exchanged signals with her, which showed her to be the Cunard steamer Umbria (British), from Liver pool for New York. She made no other signal for assistance, although a heavy sea was running at the time. She laid quite easy and comfortable, with the wind northwest, blowing a gale. Captain Jone.-t was of the opinion that her machinery was disabled and that" she was laying-to making the necessary repairs. On the morning of the 28th lie passed two steamers bound east, which would no doubt fall in with her and render any necessary assistance should she require it. Captain Jones states that there need be no alarm for her safety. SMUGGLING AT BOSTON. A Hotel Knt-prr Tnken In Charge Ac cused of Siunggllitg; Opluui. Boston, Dec. 80. The inspectors of the treasnry department have known for Borne time that a good deal of opium has been coming into Boston on which no duties wore paid. A sharp watch was Bet, and as a result an arrest was made by Deputy Marshal McDonald, which the inspectors regard as a most important tnc, and likely to lead to the arrest of others. The person arrested is Simeon Mathieu, proprietor of the Central Vermont, hotel, 200 Friend street, and tho specific charge against him is the concealment of 250 boxes of opium, valued at $2,250. Mathieu was held in if 3. 500 for a hearing. He pleaded not guilty. Itiver Frozen at St. Louis. St. Louis, Dec. aO.
