      FIFTY-FOURTH COMPANY.-Ellen Maria, 378 souls. Thursday, February 2nd, 1851, three hundred and seventy-eight Latter-day Saints, under the presidency of Elder Geo. D. Watt, embarked on board the Ellen Maria at Liverpool, but on account of diverse winds the ship anchored in the river Mersey until Saturday morning, February 2nd, when she put to sea before a fair breeze and in delightful weather. Apostle Orson Pratt, who terminated a most useful and important mission to Great Britain, returned to America with his family on board this ship. After a voyage of sixty three days, the Ellen Maria arrived in New Orleans on the sixth of April. She had experienced a strong gale of wind on the fifth of February, but it abated on the sixth, and in a few days afterwards the Saints had become accustomed to sea life, and were free from sickness. On the eleventh the ship cleared the Irish Sea. The remainer of the voyage was as pleasant as sea voyages generally are. Meetings were held every Sabbath, and also on different occasions during the week, at which Apostle Pratt and other Elders addressed the Saints and strangers present on the principles of the Gospel. Three marriages, four births and five deaths occurred on board, as follows:

      Marriages: February 9th, James Stratten to Frances Clark, both of Cambridge; February 22nd, Elder Edward Williams, of Carmarthenshire, to Ann Morgans, of Cwinbach; March 21st, James Turnbull, of Linlithgo, to Mary Mickle, of Port Glasgow.

      Births: March 9th, Emily Robbins gave birth to a son; March 28th, Sister Wild to a daughter named Ellen Maria Martha; April 2nd, Sarah Lane to a daughter; April 9th, A. Entwistle to a son named Alexander Scott.

      Deaths: February 11th, Sarah, daughter of R. and S. Preece, aged six months, February 16th, Ann, aged eleven weeks, daughter of J. and E. Toone; March 8th, George, aged two years and eight months, son of G. and S. Spizer; March 24th, Marintha Althera, aged fifteen months, daughter of Apostle Orson and Sarah M. Pratt; April 14th, Elizabeth Shelley, aged fifty-five years.

      April 9th, most of the company left New Orleans for St. Louis, Missouri, on the Alexander Scott, one of the largest boats on the Mississipi river, and arrived in St. Louis on the sixteenth. A sad accident occurred going up the river in the case of Sister Shelley, aged fifty-five years, wife of James Shelley, from Worcester Conference, who, in attempting to draw a bucket of water from the stream while the boat was running at the rate of ten miles an hour, was suddenly drawn into the water by the force of that mighty current. She floated for a moment and then sank to rise no more. The engines were stopped immediately and a boat manned and sent in search of her, but it was unsuccessful in obtaining the body.

      AGED PEOPLE HONORED.
      A very pleasant afternoon was spent at the home of George Holyoak Thursday in honor of the birthday of Bro Holyoak, which occurred Sept 1, when he reached the advanced age of 87 years, and also the birthday of Aunt Eliza who was 83 on October 2, and Aunt Lizzie who was 70 on Oct 6.
      Bro Holyoak has been an active member of the Church for 73 years, having been baptized one year before the martyrdom of the prophet Joseph Smith. He came to Parowan over 50 years ago and is the only man now living who was married at that time.
      The entertainment tendered the aged people was under the auspices of the Relief Society teachers of Aunt Eliza and Aunt Lizzie.
      Two other similar occasion were recently spent at the homes of Sisters Ann Gunn and Ann Ward, both under the direction of the Relief Society ladies.
