Messrs. James and Harris Kelly, father
and son, from El Dorado, Montgomery
county, under one of life's peculiar cir
cumstances, married Levina and Mary
Tucker, sisters, some years ago. Last
year both moved their families to this
city, and siuce' their arrival here they
have been iu the employment of the Sal
isbury Cotton Mills. Two months ago
the wife of the father died, and, ouly a
week after the other sister Mary the
wife of the son died. On last Friday
tlie lather, Jaibes Kelly, also passed over

victims of heart-dropsy. And yet the

Elsewhere, in thU paper will be found
an extract from a discourse by Be v. J. It.
Moore, of Winston, u the subject of
temperance. Of course we do not en-

failing to do what nobody expected it to
do pass a prohibition law. But the
extract, outside of its politieal allusions,
meets our hearty endorsement. The

so long as there is a saloon in Salis
bury. We believe that the open saloon
is a curse to every community wherever
it exi&ts, and every community ought to
decide for itself whether it will tolerate
the curse. The banishment of the saloon
is not properly a political matter;, at any
rate we must not be asked to leave the
Democratic party to join the Prohibition
party. Good men, conservative, think

Remarkable Convulsion of Nature.
Panama, March 24. A tremendously des
tructive pheuomenon has occured in the de
partment of Cauca in the republic of Colom
bia. The volcano of Satara has been uu-
usually active, and the people of that region
have been greatly excited by the rumbling of
the earth and the extraordinary violence of
the volcanic eruptions. Suddenly, while the
vole;ino was belching fortli lire and smoke to
a trreat hei&rht, the earth began to shake as if
a most violent convulsion was in progress, and
the mountain ridge called Cruz Loma sudden
13' sank along its entire extension, ine in
habitants in the vicinity who had a chance to
escape fled in terror from the scene, and not
too soon, because the sunken ridge dammed
up three rivers, and added devastation to the
terrors of the earthquake aud volcano. Twelve
persons are known to have perished, and many
cattle wer destroyed. More destruction is
feared, as the rivers, whose usual channels
are obstructed, are rising rapidly; ureal
suffering prevails in Cauca. usually a most
flourishing department of Colombia, and many
people ore starving owing to the failure of the
crops, and this new aud unexpected calamity
has added greatly to the general wretchedness.

vote stood SO ballots from Ministers
who do not approve of the deliverance
and are mostly on the side of Prof. Briggs
and bmith. A dozen or more of tbe dis

the Bible as an inerrant book, but claim
that the General Assembly at Portland
