Edward King's Letter in the Boatc- 1 : l aimal. Among the bright books published a few yejtmago wan oue containing ritereMiug reminiHconceH of tho Into Pius IX. by a cer tain Abbe Enmeli, who wah a kind of a confidential clerk and companion of the great Pope. Tbia Abbe Rumeli died re cently, and both tho Italian und the Aus trian papers, for ho was well known in Route aud in Vienna, are filled with anec dotes of kiH comma career. He waa edu- cated at the (3.dlegn of Volterra with Count Moatal Ferretti, the gay and gonial soldier student, who afterward became Pius IX. When thc-so youths had iluished their gtudies they vowed themselves to a mili tary caraor, and that they would begin in the Papal navy, which at that time had two war-shili*, the Holy Trinity and Saints Peter and Paul. Dut being ho diminutive the navy ncarccly gave Hoope to tho abili ties of two men whose tAleuts were of tint order; and so Moatal Ferrutti pursuod his epdosiastical cart er, and became succes sively bishop of Spoleto, archbishop of Imola and then Cardinal. Abbo Ilumeli £ ave up all hope of attaining distinguished onors, and went to live near Imola, in auch a profound seclusion that ho soon was called the hermit; but he reniaiaed an intimate friend of hia old college compan ion and was made familiar with all his projeoU. (lifted with a veritable second sighL ho one day predicted M. Forretti's election to the Papal dignity. One of tho stones which tho Abbo Ru- meli was meat fond of relating concerning the Pope, rotated to tho time when Pius IX. was still Archbishop of Imola, nnd had re ceived from Pope Orogory XVI. an order to who examine into tho case of a young girl, wh said that she had the gift of miracles und divine mission. This girl hud Installed herself in a little wood near Imola, wiut •aid to live without food, and claimed to receive visits from the Virgin, and claimed to Ii'*al all maladies by tho laying ou of hands. Tho pilgrims caruo by thousands from the neighboring provinces to see this grent wonder, aud for a time the girl was at the summit of glory. But one day tho futuro Pope, accompanied by his faithful hermit, both dressoil in shabby cloaks and dusty shoes, dropped in upon the mystical young lady and began to question her. Sho was meek enough until the Archbishop of Imola ordered her to take oil hia shoes and thoso of hia companion, and to prepare water to wash their feet. Tho young mystic rose up full . f anger, and answered very tartly: “I am the servant of God, and not of uinn." "Then,” said tho Archbishop, “Get out of this country ut once. You are only an imposter. The first of Christian virtues, that of humility, is en tirely lacking in your composition?" He had the girl iiuprisonod, ami then expelled from the province. Another bright story which the Abbe told of Piua IX. was of the time when the Pope was a simple priest. . He told this tale very often to visitors at tho Vatican, and always told it with lunch simple eloquence and pathos. One morning when ho was in the confoasional, a feminine figure, veiled from head to foot, kneeled against the grating and sAid* “Father, I have oorue, not to corneas a past sin. but to dernuud absolution for n great crime that I am about to commit." “What is it?" said tho future Pope. “I »n about to become a mother. I cannot survive this shame. I have resol veil to kill my child and to kill myself afterward; but I must have your absolution, for at the terrible moment I should have no confessor near iue." The young priest wrh greatly fright ened, because the woman talked with the courage of despair, and* he scarcely knew what to say. For soiuo moments he sat thinking, suddenly there flashed through hia brain something that a famous physi cian Uau once said to him about iufauticido. “I cannot absolve you in Advance," be au- awered, “but swear to mo in this holy place thav you will not kill your child until after you have nursed it for a few hours. Then couio back, and perhaps God will help you." Sho made this proiuiio and departed. It seems the physician had told tho priest that there was not a case known in tho annals of crime in which a woman had put to death a child after she had begun to nurse it; and, slid tho Pope, when he told tho story, sometimes with the tears running dow n his face, the poor wo man came back to tho confessional a few weeks aft* rw ark and told him that she had not dared to kill her child, because it was so beautif ul and ahe loved it so much, but her own life, she said, was in danger, be cause her parents would kill her if they knew of her fault. Wheroupon*the young priest buckled up his robe and went and arranged the affair with the parents.

The authorities of the (Vntral railroad continue to make preparations for the change of gauge which tikee place in July next. The present width of track on the majority of Southern railroads ta five fret. This Isles* than the width tn use on English railroads, but more than that in use on railroad* in the North and West iu tho United Htatcs. Tho standard gauge in the North and West is four feet eight and a half iui-hrs. The Central will adopt a gauge of four fret uinr inches. While this la half an inch wider than the standard gauge in the North and Weak it will not interfere with the running of cars from Norihnru and Western roads. Thus tt will be seen that tho gauge adopted by the Central will be sub- sUntlaliy the staudard. The obstacles to be met in preparing for a change of guage from five fee. to four foot nine laches are numerous, but they are not as serious as st first glance they would seem to be. The change in the track will be made by a force of men scattered from one end of a given line to the other. For instance, when the change is tua le between Macon and Ha van- nab, a snfllclent force will be engaged to cover every fi»ot of the apace between the two cities, and uot more than a single day will be required to tske up the railr. and relay them three Inches nearer to gether. No change of (mportauce will be necessary In trestles and bridges. To change the cars, a simple alteration of the range of the tracks is all that will be necessary. T.its will l»e accomplished by moving the wheels Uin e Inches nearer each other. Perhaps the most difficult change to make will be in the Io* omotive*. Even this, however, will not emuke half the trouble and expense that might l*e supposed. The f r nt wheels will be changed tn the same way that U.oie of the cars will be. To change the gauge ot the driving wheels, the following de vice will In' resorted to: The stee'. tiros will be moved back an Inch and a half each, thus making a contraction of three Inches in the gauge. Formerly, It was the plan of manu facturers of locomotive* to make driving wheel* without a movable tire. Now. however, it is very rare that they are made tn that way. It is proliable that all the engiues owned by the Central have the movable tire, fend with a few exceptions, they can caaily be changed to the new gange. A BROKEN SKYLIGHT. How a Spark Foil Through it, and Start* a 950.000 Fire. Macon suffered another larpe fire yesterday morn ing. When the smoke of it has cleared entirely away, it will be found to have been rather a disas trous one. costing somewhere in the neighborhood of #50.000. The scene of the Are was tho cotton warehouse of J. H. Htewart A Hon, on lower Mulberry street.

Bnfr going he sent Washington to the stable to feed his stock, and instructed Harmon to kindle a fire in the stove. 11c then bit for breakfast. Mr. Htewart returned to the warehouse just befoi 8 o’clock, having been gnno alsmt one hour. The fire In tho stove was burning nicely, and after dust ing off Ills desk, he rested himself aud began to read the TeleobaI'R, Ho bad risen shortly After wards and gone to tha door opening on tho side walk. when Henry Pearson, a colored man from Mr. Stewart ran quickly Into the warehouse and to the door of the * ‘scrap” room.

A general alarm was then sounded from No. .Ti engine house. In a short time all tha companies band, and struggling to save the building and Its contents. Nos. :i and 1 were stationed in in front of the warehouse and played two atcaly ' .reams through the door; *1,4 a Dill engineer* say that moving tho tires bsck an inch and a half will not injure cither the speed or the safety of the engine.

By the time the companies reached tho scene tho interior of tho warehouse waa enveloped in flames. In a short time it waa literally flooded with water. While the Are was In progress, negroes were busy hauling the burnt cottou from the warehouse Into tho street. This continued until the Are waa aub- dtted. It Is estimated that of the entire amount of cotton in the warehouse, about 300 bales wore saved iu a very badly damaged condition. By 11 o'clock the Are had been extinguished, am) tho comptnlea had left the scene. THE LOSSES. Owing to the excitement that prevailed, it was difll. ult to accurately estimate the losses. It was impossible to find out exactly how much cotton was stored iu the warehouse, or how much of it was saved. A* intimated above, the amount saved will probably make JR) bales, or about one-fourth of the entire amount in the war •house. This Is the opin ion of manytwho visited the scene, including sev eral of the insurance men, who estimate the salvage at alxmt ‘J5 per cent. With regard to the amount of cotton in tho ware- * “ act number of bales can only be de- there were between l.Sou and 2,000 bales; Mr. Fratk Htewart of the firm th ught there wero be tween 1,000 sin! 2.000. auil Mr. J. H. Stewart thought there were between l.fioo and 2,000 bales. The crowd estimated the number of bales i Homo thought there were n< t more than 1, lu the warehouse, while others ran the fli as high as 2.000 bales. A hurried examini the cotton ledger Uuriug the progress of the figures will be reduced to #40,500. Adding to this #4.000 damage to building, the total loss will aggregate iu round numbers #45,000.

Tbn young man was Mr. George Northrop, of 11*3 North Calvert street, Baltimore. He came to Ma con in aearch of an orphan boy named Daniel Joseph Blackwell. Tho boy'a names—that Is, the first two—suggest a couple of Biblical character* who wore subjected to several veiy unpleasant ex periences, but it <s not recorded that either, at the tender ago of ten years, was left without father or mother# Blackwell’s parents lived In Havannah. His mother, twice married, died in 1875. and left him and a young sister to be cared for by a con sumptive father. In 18*1, believing himself to bo near bis end, tho father brought Black* e'l con and placed him under the kind • “ of the Rev. _ _ . at the kletliodUt Orphan Home, few months after the father die!. After Blackwell had lx*en an inmate of the Home a few months, he gained favor in the eye* of Mr. J. J. Atueraon, who adopted him. Blackwell's life with Mr. Amerson was pleasant, aud be remained contentedly with that gentleman until eighteen mouths ago. About that time, seized with a boy’i restless desire to see the world, and f«*e!lng himself responsible to nobody but himself, Blackwell aud denly disappeared. Kearching investigations, while they established that he bad run away, failed to dis cover hia whereabouts. Part of the facts mentioned 51 r.

The will appointed Mr. Northrop the children's guardian. He round the sister iu Havannah, and will take her to Baltimore where he will have her educated. Had he found tho boy, he would have made a like disposition of him. Mr. Northrop returned to Havannah last night. From that city he * ill proceed to Charleston, and thence to ltaitlmoro.
