Tiger on a Itnilrond Train. . A. very curiously wrought instrument was placed on tne train wmcn leit unatta-nocga Sunday evening for Nashville. It attracted the general attention of those on board, not so much that it occupied a seat by itself, but because it was round and had a revolvmg wneel, cliecquered on. the top. The owner appeared to be very careful of it, though he did not affect to attach much value to it uonductor xiavis, aware tnat the particular seat it occupied had not been paid for, and it being in the way of. those wno. oy nature, bad been made to sit, moved it and put it under the water cooler, where it, for the nonce, got very wet from tho drippings of the water. All agreed that it was a veritable tiger, and that it had gone to Chattanooga to superinduce a shrinkage in pocketbooks, and a general nnanciai panic. Personal.

HiH Cousin at aBlrth-piiy : A widow woman named -Moran gave a party at her house Saturday night, in honor of the birth-day of one of her children. During. the. -evening a few drunken men tWent Uj-her house vwhich is located in the itfteeotu' DistricW- 3 With some -of theBe men, Clay Harrison, who .was als( un,der the influence of liquor, was about to ljaye "b fight; ytla his cousin;". John Fox,, stepped up for the double purpose oi preventing a difficulty, and to keep Harrison from using "his pistol, which he, atfhe,?,cBmei"'was 'about to tow'Trpoir his antagonist. v Just at mat moment nar- nson s pistol was aiscnorgeu, uie iuu passing through Tox's thigh, and cutting the main artery. Clutching at the wound, Fox cried out in great anguish, "I am shot to piefces." He attempted to stay the blood which spurte'd out1n"a stream until weakened by its loss he fell to his knees and then full length upon his back, when he expired--in a very, short time, not more than twenty minutes eiaprang ueiweeu iuu shooting and his death. The floor for some distance around him was covered with his " core. There was an iniinetliato rush of people but of the house as soon asthe shot was fired, and it was soon emptied. Tne snooting or roi seemed to sober Harrison, who expressed regrets at having been the means of his detxth, and that it was accidental and unintentional. Ho and Fox had opme to the party together, and had been fast friends. Fox's Barents and sister were sent for, and arrived about 1 o'clock Sunday morning. Harrison attempted to tell i ox s father now it happened, saying that he would not have committed the act for the world, when the former told the crowd in an impatient manner to take him away for fear he (Fox) might do him harm, that he was not pre pared just then for an explanation. Coroner Brantlov held an inquest over young FbxVbody; and the jury rendered a verdict that he came to his death from a ball discharged from the, pistol in the nanus of Clay Harrison. Fox was twenty-two years of age, and a very ciever young man. He drove an express wagon for two years. and was again about to enter the service of the Express Uonipany. tie was accompanied to his crave-vesterday by a largo num ber of friends, and the . express team, draned in black, that he formerly drove. Harrison was arresjBd on the night of the killing, was brought to the police station, and subsequently released by request of Fox's father. ... The testimony before the Coroner's jury showed that Harrison was quite drunk, and generally pointed to the fact that the shoot-in cr bad been accidental. ThiB bloody affair occurring where people were gathered to amuse, to entertain, to enjoy and to cultivate each other's society and to make all happy, ought to be a severe lesson against the silly and useless carrying of deadly weapons to a party, or indeed at all. STARTLING ACCIDENT. A Crowd of People Precipitated Down a f ' - High Embankment. The, two-story frame house on South Market Street, belonging to Thomas Mel-row, who is better known as "Yankee Tom." was burned at half-past ten o'clock Sunday morning.

The crowd which had been left to view those who had fallen stood aghast with amaze ment, until it was discovered tnat none had been seriously hurt, when they gave a deafening shout, borne laugned at tne lu-dicrousness of the scene, while others shed tears, through fear that out of. all that througjof human beings many had, per- cnance, met tneir aeam. wnen tne scare was fairly over, each -person who had . reached the bottom of the embankment, began earnestly ' to look about ; for -lost articles, sucn hats, jewelry, money, watches, parasols and shawlB.

THREE TIMES STABBED. Dloody Affair Over a Dispute About Chicken Wins'. William Henry was the 'guest of : a man named James Greer, in Cheatham County, Sunday. Both sat down to a dinner, the savory fumes from which rose to their grateful nostrils, giving some indication of the splendid feast which was to follow. They accordingly took seats at table, and commenced devouring it with intense satisfaction. During the progress of the meal, they got into a dispute over the question as to whether the hostess had or had not eaten a chicken wing, which resulted in Greer's, stabbing Henry three times in the left breast, inflicting mortal wounds, . from which he died in twenty minutes. :Both are said to have been previously on tho best of terms.

T7ATE BISHOP'EAllli1? I " Menio Hal rSer rices at Mcfieadrtfe Church. ' MabVminisfers of t!reLM Ef Church, South, and a large audience; - assembled in the McKenuree unurcu at 3 o clock Sunday afternoon,; to express their sorrow at the loss of the late Bishbp JSady. The service was. begun by AjVplunfary by the organist the first strains of1-which fell with tender solemnity upon the listening ear,'like the wail of autumn winds among falling leaves; .then the, ;de?P toneslike the pulsing of the brave true heart which had gone, and which had often been comforted by the It is well," rendered by the This was followed by the fervent prayer oi Dr. its appeal tor .help to iear this affliction,' and thanks that the aged servant of the cross bad long been spared, and had at last like a shock of ripened gram, been gathered in ne garner UJL UUU. 1 The ninetieth Psalm was then read by Dr. Greenland the fifteenth chapter of First Connthians by Dr. Haygood. This was followed by the reading of the seven hundred and thirty-ninth hymn, "Servant of God, well done," and sung by tho choir and congregation. The reminiscences and sketch of the early life of the lamentedshopj given by Bishop McTyeire,was listened to with the most profound: attention. Bishop Mc-Tyeire said thatyielding to the requests of his brethren at the meeting last Friday, he was now prepared to give some imperfect statements regarding the life and character of the late Uisnop Joan isariy, wno was boni on the first day of January, 1786, and eighteen years after, April 22, 1804, bora again this time under the ministry of the Rev. Stith Mead. He was recommended to the conference by his Presiding Elder, and in February, 1807. he, with sixteen other young men, was taken on trial m the Virginia Conference, held: at Jewbern, N. C, and in 1809, . two. years after,-; was --'taken-s-in--,-folt-'OoniJection. The preachers of that day were sent forth two and two, arid the name of John Early always came ' first in the appointments. Few Methodist preachers of xhat time were married men"; although celibacy was 'not one of the twenty-five articles, yet the cares of a family were so great that tew ventured upon mat step. Bishop Asbury once spoke of a confer-ence at which there were eighty-four pres ent, sixty of them most promising young men, but only three of them were marriad men. John Early belonged to the heroic age of the. church for there was an heroic age when districts and circuits extended over States, and ministers preached twentysix sermons' in 'thirty days," and before brushwood camps gavo way to frescoed- ceilings. The Bishop then told how he served in different positions to which he was appointed, both with credit to himself and the church, of hAHv many members he. re ceived in the church. "He was wise for saving souls," for he stated to the Conference in New-Orleans, "I have taken more members in the Methodist Church than any preacher in it Through Uishop .fc-arly, Randolph and Macon College was estab lished. In 1845 he was elected a member of the General Conference which held its session in New York; When the' first Southern Book Depository was established he was elected its agent He was elected Bishop by the General Conference' which met in Auorusta, Georgia, in 1854. In May, 1607, he was present at a conference in this city, xor ujb pane-am: years ua uau sciuuui stirred abroad. His absence from the Gen eral Conference had been Indtloed, and it had been the custom of the college of Bishops to send him, in advance, the im portant items oi tneir deliberation. He did not know how to crow old, and when, in 1807, he placed upon the retired list, he was almost overcome; this was at night; the next morning physicians were with him. It was barely possible that this un girding of his armor overpowered him. He had been girded for sixty years, and to unloose, to unburden him, was too much for such a iiatuTe.'Fttr sixeaTs-he'iiad declined steadily. Ho was twice happily married, and in the old mansion at Lynchburg, children and children's children gathered about him to minister to him, and there in that calm retreat, tho servant of God bowed neath the touch of death, Wed nesday morning, November 5, 1873. Bishon McTveire said that the Bishop. like Oliver Cromwelli was a reader'of feen rather than books he studied men and measures, and ,was a deep, and profound thinker. He was a man 'destitute of an imagination, and hence, dealt in stern logic and btubborn facts. He was a man of affairs, and like a General of an army, he tookin all the pointeof thesitnntion.'flnd directed nis lorce so tnat ne couiu accomplish the greatest good. AU his actions in Annual and General Conferences were practical. He was a man just suited to the times in which he lived and labored, and his labors had been abundantly blessed. BishoD Early's form was ; commanding: he was sober with6ut being sad just in his The beautiful hymd, "Thou art gone to the grave," was sung by the choir and. the congregation, after which a short, earnest prayer, by Dr. Bedford, and the Doxology concluded tne tribute oi jove to tne good man who has gone to his rest.

Brethren, the cry of the widow and the orphan comes to us from all parts of our state.' The Grand Master then in an earnest and pointed manner pointed out the duty ot tne iraternity to taose a op en a ent on mem, and expressed nis commence m tne xtrotn erhood to do their whole duty in the preni ises. During the year he had granted dispen sations to five Lodges; had granted four new trials, and had issued several dispen sations permitting XKxiges to moot and install their officers, -when by cholera and othefcauaes they had been- prevented Jtrom doing so" at the regular time.'

Ere another meeting of toe Grand Lodge pro fessional duties will cause me to remove .to another State, but be assured I shall, carry with me to my distant nome a grateiui remembrance of your many acts of kindness, and as each year rolls around I shall look back: with tear-dimmed eyes to the past an nual communications of this Grand Lodge, and in imagination I will see you as in future you gather around our sacred altar will see your Bmile of welcome and feel again the warm loving grasp of your honest bands, and in aid age as my ieei go tottering to the grave, my greatestpride will be to gather my grandchildren around rme and tell them that I was once Grand Master of Masons of Tennessee.
