Mournful News. – Our community was shocked yesterday by the intelligence that Mr. Gabe Wright and his whole family, together with his mother-in-law, Mrs. Lawrence, were drowned while crossing the Mississippi.  We can learn none of the particulars, save that the steamer was wrecked, and our neighbors, together with many Alabamians and Georgians, were lost.  In fact we believe that every soul on the steamer was lost.  We have every reason to believe that the news is authentic as it is sad and startling.—Rome Commercial.
