Newspapers From The Past

~~~~~ NEWS OUT OF THE PAST ~~~~~

The newspapers are from the Guernsey Times and The Cambridge Jeffersonian.
I choose articles of interest which I thought might let you know what the world was like in each given year. It brings in the life of the people and the happenings of the given time. It tells information on who needed to pick up their mail, who got married, who got sick, who died, who visited who, etc.
If you enjoy history of your ancestors, then it is worth the time to read these. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did while transcribing them for you.

 At a meeting of the Farmers and working men of Guernsey County, held at the school house, on the Steubenville road five miles east of Cambridge on the 8th day of February, and after calling Mr. Bratton of Jefferson Township to the Chair, and appointing A. Armstrong, Jr. secretary pro tem, the meeting was addressed by several gentlemen present, and the political principles of the present dominant party being examined and investigated, and believing that hey have arrogated to themselves a name, that of Democrats, at which their leaders as least are not at heart, & are unworthy to receive the support of freemen their object being to keep up party strife through foreigner names so as the may get to accomplish their aristocratic and unhallowed designs— Therefore, we as working men deem it necessary for our own benefit, and for the benefit of our county, to have a change of rulers from designing knaves to honest men,, and we do sincerely believe that all true republicans should join in political brotherhood and discuss the matter freely, and for that purpose we do adopt the following —- .

Constitution

Of the

Farmers Tippecanoe Club No. 1 of Guernsey CountyOhio

 Preamble

      The members of this club honestly believe that the present is a time, that every citizen, should upon all proper occasions, freely express their opinions of public measures, as it appears evident to us that from misrule or mismanagement in our chief rulers, is the sole cause of our present embarrassment, therefore the welfare of this great nation demands not only a change of rulers but a radical change of principles believing that the nominees of the Harrisburg convention are such as would re-establish sound republican principles and would administer the affairs without regard to party but with equity and justice for the benefit of the whole nation and not for a part, – Therefore

      Resolves, that we will use all fair and honorable means, in our humble sphere of life, to promote the election of the man of our choice William H. Harrison, and with hat view do associate ourselves together, and do adopt the following

Constitution

       Article 1. – This association shall be known by the name of the Farmers Tippecanoe Club No. 1, of Guernsey County, Ohio, and shall consist of all citizens’ farmers & other voters who shall enroll themselves as members by signing the constitution.  It will be dissolved on the termination of the pending Presidential election.

      Article 2. – The officers of this club shall be a chairman, secretary, treasurer and a committee of vigilance, their duty to be the same as others in similar political clubs.

      Article 3. – There shall be a regular meeting of the club the 2nds Friday in every month at such places and hour as the club may direct.

      The evening being far spent the meeting adjourned to meet at the schoolhouse near Armstrong’s Mill on Friday the 13th of March at 3 o’clock P. M.

                                                                        Wm. Bratton, Ch’,

  1. Armstrong, Sec’y

Friday March 13, 1840

      The club met pursuant to adjournment when the following persons were elected as officers of the club, to wit, William Bratton, Ch’m, Abraham Armstrong, Sec’y, Edward Parkason, treas’r, James Black, Robert Kirkwood, William Stewart, Samuel Bratton, James Blair, George Linn, Joseph Miller, Richard Hill, John Henderson, William Henderson, Gilbert McCulley, Andrew F. Linn, John Stevenson, Alexander N. Milligan, and David McCollough committee of vigilance, the club was addressed by several gentlemen in a very appropriate manner.

      The following resolutions were offered and passed unanimously.

      Resolved – That we have been grossly misrepresented by the Tory party as being bank bought slaves, rag barons, Aristocrats &c., and that we announce their base slander of our noble convention at Columbus, as fictitious, and calculated to deceive the hard fisted yeomanry of our country.

      Resolved – That our wrongs we will right at the ballot box next fall.

      Resolved – That the proceedings of our meetings thus far be sent to the Editor of Times in Cambridge and that he be requested to give them an insertion.

      Resolved – That we adjourn to meet at the schoolhouse near Hannah’s lower mill in Liberty Township.

  Cambridge Academy

The Trustees of the Cambridge Academy, deeming it proper to communicate to the stockholders and others interested in the cause of education, such information as may be useful respecting the present condition and future prospects of the Academy, have ordered the following statement to be made public:

The amount of stock subscribed to the Cambridge Academy is $ 790.  The amount actually paid in is $ 503. 12 ½ .  Soon after the organization of the Board of Trustees, they purchased, for the use of the Academy, the building formerly occupied as a Masonic Hall in the town of Cambridge, with the lot on which the same is located, and proceeded to repair and fit up the building for the use of the Academy.

In October 1838, the Academy was opened for the reception of students, and since that them there has been a regular course of instruction given in this institution, in all the branches usually taught in similar institutions, and the number of scholars in attendance has usually exceeded the most sanguine expectations of the Board of Trustees.  The following list comprises the classes in the Academy during the last session, with the number in each class, viz: Latin 6, Mental Philosophy 8, Natural Philosophy 7, Astronomy 7, 1st class in Geography 11, 2nd class in Geography 7, 1st class in English Grammar 16, 2nd class in English Grammar 5, 1st class in Arithmetic 12, 2nd class in Arithmetic 6, book Keeping 1.

The late public examination of the students, in the branches above named, exhibited an extent and accuracy of knowledge in the several departments of education, upon which they were examined, which can only be acquired by diligent students under the instruction of an able teacher.  The students attending the Academy during the last session have been under the instruction of Mr. . H. Miller, and the Board of Trustees takes pleasure in announcing to the public that Mr. Miller’s connection with the institution will be continued during the next session.  The Board feel authorized to recommend Mr. Miller to the public not only as a finished scholar but as a gentleman otherwise well qualified for the principal of a literary institution.

The Trustees indulge the hope that, the institution has passed the most trying period of its existence, and that sustained by an enlightened and liberal public, its future progress will be one of usefulness and success, and that it will here forth be ranked among the most flourishing and useful literary institutions in this portion of the state.

The Summer session will commence on the 20th day of April next, and continue for twenty-two weeks.  Instruction will be given in all branches usually taught in similar institutions.

            Tuition $ 8, per session.

            Board can be obtained in respectable families at $ 1.25 per week.

            By orders of the Board of Trustees

 Obituary-We notice, with deep regret, the announcement in the last Cincinnati Gazette of the death of Charles Hammond, Esq, editor of that paper, who died April 3, about 61 years of age.  Few men have been on the stage of life who evinced a higher talent then Charles Hammond, few of stronger feelings, few who were more industrious, few who did more actual good and none who were more beloved by those who knew him intimately.                                                                         Wheeling Times

Obituary

Died, on the morning of the 19th inst., in the 27th year of her age, after a short illness, Mrs. Birtha Hyatt, consort of Mr. Noah Hyatt, and daughter of Major J Bute of this place.  The deceased was a worthy member of he Presbyterian Church, and in conflict with her last enemy, her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ enabled her to triumph over all his terrors, and to feel a holy assurance that God was the “Strength of her heart and her portion forever.”  This afflictive stroke of an inscrulable Providence, ahs deprived her bereaved husband of an affectionate wife, three tender children of an indulgent mother, and a numerous acquaintance of an amiable friend and kind neighbor.  They are not left, however, to “Sorrow as those that have no hope,”

‘These, new rising from the tomb

With luster brighter far shall shine;

Revive with ever during bloom,

Safe from diseases and decline.”

Obituary

Died-At his residence in Cambridge Township, on the 12th instant, Joseph T. Noble aged 61 years.

The deceased was born in Fayette county Pennsylvania, and removed to this place in the year 1824.  The deceased has therefore lived  in this state 17 years, residing  a part of the time in Norwich, Muskingum county.-And all who have known him during the period of time will bear ample testimony to his honesty of character, as well as his affectionate disposition towards his family and friends.  He has been laboring under a disease of the heart, which no earthly Physician could cure, for about 14 months.

He became a member of the Roman Catholic church in the year 1831, and lived an exemplary life under the discipline of that church thence forward until a short time previous to his death when he expressed the following sentiments; It matters not to what church any one attaches themselves let them have full faith in Christ the Redeemer and they shall be saved.  He for some time before his death was in the habit of sending for an adherent of the Methodist church, who lived near him, to come and pray with and for him, (Mr. James Brown) yet never denying his belief, but that the Catholic doctrines was the true doctrine.  He said in the presence of the writer of this article that he believed there was true Christians in every church.

He has children living in the state of Illinois and a short time before his death he said to one whom he dearly loved, “write to them and say I am going to Heaven-Oh why should I wish to stay on earth longer” When one of his beloved children, thought him past speaking leant over him and said, papa you cannot speak again to me, raise your hands and give me satisfaction once more that you are going happy.  He plainly said “I hear the Lord’s sweet voice, say, arise and come unto me and your pains will be over.” These were his last words.

For a number of days previous to his death he would say to those who came in and point to that glorious passage in our Holy Scripture, contained in the 7th chapter and 7th verse of Matthew-‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you for every one that asketh, receiveth and he that seeketh, findeth, and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened”  After these cheering evidences of his happy departure, the last words he spoke are those mentioned above.  May all died as he has died.

Died

On Thursday morning the 2d inst., Cassandra Uptergraffe, 3rd daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. Rogers of this place, in the 14th year of her age.

The death bed scene of this interesting girl was overwhelming.  For days before her death she was sensible that she must die.  At first she manifested some anxiety, but soon evinced that calm composure, that meekness and resignation which gave witness that she possessed her soul in peace.  Her kind and affectionate intercourse with her dear friends, her Christian simplicity, her child like confidence, were most powerfully affecting.

May the scene, so deeply impressive, so inresistibly touching to the heart, never be effaced from the minds of those who witnessed it. She is gone, but the admonition is with us, She died, we trust, in faith, an exhibition of its power and blessedness, testifying, that, though she be dead, she lives forever.

Fire at Washington

      On last Sunday afternoon, the large brick building in Washington, Guernsey County, week known as Brown’s Hotel, was completely burned town.  The greater part of its furniture was saved.  The fire is supposed to have communicated from the chimney at the east end of the house. – Owing to the prevalence of wind at the time, the surrounding property, and indeed the greater part of the town, was in most imminent danger; but too much praise cannot be bestowed upon the citizens for their efficient efforts in arresting its progress.  They have shown themselves to be great at putting out a fire.  The Washingtonians scarcely ever fail to extinguish fire, although in this instance, we are informed they, hacked their favorite ammunition, water.

      Our friend, Mr. Basil Brown, has rented the tavern house formerly kept by Mr. Endley, where he is already prepared in his peculiarly gentlemanly and accommodation way, to wait upon the traveling public.

Madison College,

AntrimOhio

     Madison College has this day closed its winter session.  The board of Trustees having witnessed the semi-annual examination of the students, can say, that they were highly gratified with the manner in which the pupils acquitted themselves.  The examination thro out not only reflected great honor upon the pupils, but also manifested in the strongest light the superior qualifications of the professors and their untiring diligence to promote the best interest of the pupils and of the institution.  The Board can therefore with confidence recommend this institution to any who may desire a thorough knowledge of any of the branches taught in our Colleges.

      The professors in this institution are Mr. S. Starrett, principal and professor of Mathematics, Natural and Moral Sciences; Rev. S. Findley, professor of the Hebrew Language, & Mr. W. M. Bogle, professor of the Latin and Greek Languages.

      The Board regrets to learn that a report has obtained circulation in some parts of community that his is a sectarian institution.  This report is entirely false; the board of Trustees have been chosen from nearly all the different denominations, of this section of country, and all that is required of the student is a good moral character.

      The Summer session will commence on the last Tuesday in April.

      Boarding can be obtained at from $ 1.00 to $ 1.25 per week.

By order of the Board,

Truly, the fathers and mothers in Israel are passing away.  Mrs. Hoppen, an aged Christian lady of this vicinity, died on Thursday night of last week, and on Saturday her remains were taken to Winchester for interment.

As Mr. James Yeo was returning home from town a few nights ago, his horse slipped and fell.  Mr. Yeo’s foot remaining in the stirrup, the horse fell on him, and but for assistance he would undoubtedly have been crushed.

A few days since we dropped into the Grocery and Notion Store of Mr. Jno. D. Fred, (who by the way, is a live business man) and we were astonished to find such a stock of goods, and so much taste displayed in the arrangement can be excelled in the county.

 Messrs. D’Yarmett Brothers have rented the east room in Taylor’s new block, just west of the Eagle Hotel, into which they will remove their extensive stock of stoves and tinware on the first of April.

Mr. Simon Nicholson, near Hartford, this county, planted a piece of land in sorghum cane, which measured within a rod of half an acre, from which he made one hundred and seventy gallons of good syrup.  This was an extraordinary yield.

Mrs. Hoeck, wife of George Hoeck, died of consumption at her home in this place, on Wednesday morning of last week, and was buried on Thursday afternoon.

Dr. Jas Smith, late of this place, an highly respected young physician, has gone to Sarahsville, Noble county, where he will engage in practice.  We can heartily recommend him to the people of that town and vicinity.  May success attend him is the wish of his many friends.

On Tuesday a dispatch was received by Mr. A. Depew, of Richland township, announcing the death of his brother-in-law, Mr. Barnett Johnson, in Christian county, Illinois, the result of an accident about a portable saw mill, of which he was proprietor.

On Sunday morning a little son of Mr. John Callihan, who resides south of town on the Point Pleasant road, went into his brother’s room and took a small cartridge pistol from a pocket.  While examining the workings of the thing it was accidentally discharged, the ball going thro’ the knuckle joint of the forefinger on the right hand.  Dr. Wall thinks he can save the finger.  This should prove a warning to boys who are deponent to be curious about things they know they have no business with.

Mr. John Tignor, of this vicinity, recently slaughtered three Chester White pigs, aged eight months and one day, which netted 907 pounds of pork, or an average of 280 pounds.  We think Tignor’s pigs are ahead of any yet published hereabouts.

The Barton Murder Case.

This case was still pending when our paper went to press last week, on Thursday.  At three o’clock that day the pleading closed and the Judge read a lengthy and elaborate charge to the jury, who then retired to their room, where they remained until Friday morning before concluding a verdict.  At half-past 8 o’clock Court opened and the jury returned a verdict of “manslaughter.”  Judge Wood then sentenced the prisoner, Elijah Barton, to hard labor in the Ohio Penitentiary for the term of ten years, being the fullest extent of the law in punishment for manslaughter.  The general opinion of outsiders was that the verdict would be for murder in the second degree.  Sheriff Barnett on Friday took Barton to Columbus, where he has now one week in of the ten long years.

Gordon Lofland for $6,300, and bought Mr. Hugh Wilson’s farm of over 300 acres, which lies one mile west of town, for $18,350.

We learn that Mr. Wilson contemplates removing to Missouri, where his son-in-law, Mr. R. D. Rood, recently bought a 1400 acre farm upon which he will locate this spring.  These gentlemen are good citizens and active business men, and will prove a valuable requisition to the locality which secures them.

Settlement of Cambridge.

In 1798, soon after “Zane’s trace” was cut through Guernsey county on the way from Wheeling to Zanesville, a Mr. Graham made the first settlement on the site of Cambridge.  At this time the only dwellings between Wheeling and Lancaster were at Zanesville and Cambridge. Graham remained about two years, and was succeeded by Henry Beymer, from Somerset, Pennsylvania.  Both of these parties kept houses of entertainment, and ferries over Wills creek. In 1803 Beymer gave up his tavern to Mr. John Beatty, who moved in from Loudon county, Virginia.  Mr. Wyatt Hutchison, who resided at Cambridge for a number of years afterward, was a member of Beatty’s family, which consisted of eleven persons.  The Indians then hunted in this vicinity, and often encamped on the creek below town.

In June 1806, Cambridge was laid out by Beatty and the Gombers; and on the day the first lots were offered for sale several families from the British Isle of Guernsey, near the coast of France, stopped here and purchased lands. They were followed by other families, amounting in all to fifteen or twenty, from the same island.  They all settled here, and from them the county received its name.  Among the heads of these families were Wm. Ogie,  Thos. Naftel, Thos. Lanphesty, Jas. Bishard, Charles and John Marquand, John Roggins, Daniel Ferbrache, Peter, Thomas and John Sarchett, and Daniel Hubert.

Suicide

A private letter from a friend at Batesville, Noble county gives us the particulars of the suicide of Mrs. Sarah A. Henderson, at that place on Easter Sunday.  The causes which led to the committed of the deed seem to have been difficulties of a financial nature, which and brought about a separation between her husband and herself.  This took place several months since.  On Thursday evening previous to the suicide she sent for her husband, and they had an interview.  It is judged from her manner on parting with him on that evening that she contemplated suicide.

At any rate, on Sunday morning following she was found in the wash-house near her dwelling, hanging by the neck dead, having used a long hand-towel for the purpose.  The suicide has terribly shocked that community.

Serious Runaway Accident.

We are indebted to a friend at Fairview for the following facts:

On Monday last as Messrs. Isaiah Fields and Joseph Power, of Morristown, were driving near Hendrysburg, Belmont county, a bolt that holds the shafts to the front axletree came out, dropping the shafts upon the heels of the horse, which caused him to run.  Fields, thinking to catch the horse by the head, jumped out, and in doing so broke his right leg just above the ankle, both bones protruded through the skin, lacerating the flesh very severely.   Power either jumped or fell out on his head which produced concussion of the brain.  Mr. Fields leg was amputated by Dr. MePherson, assisted by Drs. Dunham and Rosemond, of Fairview, and Hoge of Morristown, and Jones of Hendrysburg.  The unfortunate men were taken to their homes at Morristown immediately after the operation was performed.

Sudden Death Of Mr. J. W. Simons

On Saturday morning last this community was shocked by the sudden death of Mr. J. W. Simons, an old and highly respected citizen.  He had been ailing for some time, but none thought there was anything serious in the nature of his disease.  On the morning of his death he was out on the porch of his residence, and had been talking to his son, Dr. C. P. Simons, about his physical condition while walking about the porch.  The doctor, having occasion to go out upon the street a few minutes, left his father seated upon a chair on the porch, but had scarcely gone out of sight when the old gentleman fell to the floor.  His son and Dr. Wall were immediately sent for, and soon after their arrival Mr. Simons expired.

The deceased was born in Pennsylvania in 1819, and came to Zanesville in 1830, where he resided until 1855, when he removed to Cambridge.  He had been n leading member of the Baptist church for thirty-one years, and a deacon in the same for several years past.  Mr. Simons leaves a mother, widow and several children to mourn over their sudden and severe affliction.  His remains were interred in the CambridgeCemetery on Sabbath last under the auspices of the Odd Fellows Lodge, of which order he has long been a prominent member.

A female pauper named McCarrol died at the County Infirmary, Friday.

Our citizens were startled on the afternoon of Thursday last, by the intelligence that two paupers in our county infirmary had been murdered by an insane inmate of that institution named Berry.  This man Berry is a native of Liberty township, and was brought here on Wednesday by Constable Thompson of Cambridge, on a warrant issued by the Probate Judge.  He was placed in a room on the upper floor, and all the usual precautions of safety was observed.  Everything went well until about noon, Thursday, when he (Berry) becoming terribly excited and enraged, with superhuman strength tore to pieces the heavy door of his cell.  After gaining access to the hall, he began to dispend the stairs, from one story to another until he reached the lower floor, tearing down three doors in his passage.  Here he came in contact with two of his fellow inmates each one of whom he dealt a blow on the head, and instantly killed.  One of these victims was a woman named Agnes Kimble, the other a man named Richey, both of whom have long term inmates of the institution.  The fatal weapon used was a strip from his cell door, with which in punched the face of the dead man entirely off.  The scene is described by those who saw it as heart sickening.  The blood and brains of the dead victims scattered around, the piercing shrieks of the maniac with the mournful bewailings of the inmates were calculated to make the strongest heart quake.  The crazy man was at last captured in the yard, and returned to a cell, and heavily ironed.  The coroner was telegraphed for, arriving in town late that evening.  After empaneling a Jury of our citizens, they proceeded to the infirmary and held an inquest over the dead bodies.  A verdict in accordance with the above facts was returned.  Berry is now in the Zanesville Jail.

On the 5th day of Sept., 1871, Miss Florence Gillette, aged 16 years.

Alas! Another beloved one has taken;

The wings of an angel, to soar upon high;

And there be continually praising Jehovah

Alas! We are born to bloom-then to die.

O could I but say to that loved one who left us,

A rise from they grave-let me lie in they stead,

But why call her back to a world of sorrow,

It is better-let her be numbered with the dead.

“And why should we weep-why should we sorrow,

For one who has gone to dwell in blest peace?

Is she not free from trials and troubles,

Of a world where sorrow shall never, never cease?”

“Thou ‘art gone up above to the mansions of glory,

Thy Savior’s loved voice has welcomed thee in;

No more the broad sorrows that darkened earth’s story,

Shall sadden they spirit with sorrow or sin.”

“A loan from the Lord! Now thy gift is retaken,

And though we must weep, we would not repine;

But press upwards and on wards, till we too are taken,

To be with Jesus, and in his light shine.”

Hoopman

October 24th, 1871 in Guernsey county, Ohio, seven miles south of Cambridge, Lucinda A. Hoopman, wife of Isaac Hoopman, and daughter of Rowland and Catharine Rogers, in the 65th year of her age.

Sister Hoopman was born in Har?ford County, Maryland, January 4th, 1807; united with the church in 1820; was married to Isaac Hoopman, December 4th, 1823, and in 1837 they moved to Guernsey county, where they have resided up to the date of her death.

The writer became acquainted with the deceased about 33 years since, at which time her house was not only a good home for the preacher, but also the place of preaching.  A better wife, mother, and Christian it would be hard to find.  Her end was peace.

On the 25th, after a suitable discourse by her old pastor to a very large audience, her mortal remains were laid in the grave, waiting the morning of a glorious resurrection.

It was hard for husband, children, brother and sisters, with many other dear friends, who all loved her so much, to take their final leave, but they all expect to meet their loved one in that brighter, better land.                    J. Burns.

Smith

At the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphans’ Home, at Xenia, on the morning of the 13th inst., of inflammation of the stomach and bowels, Charles G. Smith, late of Cambridge, Ohio, in the 15th year of his age.

His father Jacob Smith, of the 26th O.V.I, died in the military prison at Andersonville, Ga., August 10th, 1864, a victim of rebel barbarism.

Charles was a youth of much promise.  He was manly beyond his years, too proud to do a mean act, and too conscientious to perform a dishonest one.  He was kind and considerate to his companions-gentle and loving to his teachers-truthful and honorable in all things.  His death has cast a gloom over the Home, where he was much beloved, and where his memory will long be cherished.

His mother arrived just as a kind friend was closing his eyes.  Had the telegram which was sent in the morning before his death been delivered as it should have been, instead of being deposited in the Post office, she would have reached Xenia in season to have smoothed his dying pillow, heard his last words, and to have comforted him as he passed through the “dark valley” with a mother’s sympathy and love.

The funeral was attended on Saturday, 14th inst.  An interesting and feeling address was delivered by Rev. McMillan, of Xenia.  The children of the home sang some of their sweet and plaintive hymns, and seventy-five of them, with the officers and teachers, and many citizens of Xenia, followed his remains to the beautiful city cemetery and deposited them in the grave.

His is the first death that has occurred at the Home in eighteen months-since it became a State institution.         Com.             Xenis, Ohio, October 14, 1871.

Post Mortem Examination of Miss Lyons:

A post mortem examination was made upon the body of Miss Mary Lyons, of New Concord, Ohio, who was operated upon for the removal of a tumor from the breast, by Dr. Barbour, assisted by Drs. Simons, Wall, Hoge and Taylor, on Tuesday, the 7thinst., and who died very suddenly upon the morning of the 8th.

The examination was made by, and in the presence of, Drs. Barbour, Simmons, Wall, Hoge, Taylor, McCall, Black and Arnold, and revealed the fact that nearly every important organ in the body was in a state of organic disease, to such an extent as to render it positively certain that her life would have been of a very brief duration even if she had not undergone the operation.  The immediate cause of death proved to have been organic diseases of the structures of the heart, the walls of which were found to have undergone felly degeneration, the left side so thinned as to leave but little power for the propulsion of the blood, and the right cavity almost obliterated by thickening of its walls, which favored the formation within it of a firm clot, thus leading to death.

In addition to this, was found extensive disease of both lungs, the stomach and that portion of the bowels immediately connected with this organ. Here was found chronic inflammation and ulceration with complete destruction of the mucous membrane lining these organs.

The unanimous conclusion arrived at was, that the shock of the operation was too great for an organization so seriously diseased as hers proved to be.

Death of Judge Way

Judge Way was found dead on the street in Woodsfield on Wednesday morning of last week.  The Barnesville Enterprise says:

He had been spending the latter part of the previous evening at Musterman’s? Hotel in company with Messrs Clark, Campbell and Adams of St. Clairsville, and was last seen alive by them when they told him good night.  Mr. Campbell had asked the Journal of the Belmont Common Pleas Court to Judge Way to have it signed by him. But he deterred signing it on that evening because he desired to make a few more entries in the morning and could not see well at night.  At three o’clock in the morning Mrs Way became alarmed for her husband’s safety, and braving the storm that was then raging, went out to find him.  She passed within a few feet of him, but her search, as well as that of other parties, did not reveal his presence.  About seven o’clock  Wednesday morning the remains were discovered in the street leading from the hotel to the Judge’s residence, and within, fifty yards of his brother’s door.  He lay upon his back, sleeping the calm sleep of death, with his face and body covered with a mantle of snow, which had fallen after he died.  A glass lantern with the candle burned to its socket, was standing on one side of him, and an umbrella was lying on the other.  The scene that ensued after the discovery of the remains, is described as heart-rending.

Duke Farrar has dubbed himself M. D.  In his last week’s issue he excepts to the opinions expressed by Doctors Wall, Hoge, Simons, tingle, Taylor and others as to the cause of the death of Miss Mary Lyons.  We have long been aware that the Duke was the only lawyer of ability in town, but to know that he is the only thorough medical gentleman, and that from his own pen, is a bit of information that will surprise many of his own acquaintances.

Obituary

Clendening

Died, at his residence near Freeport, Harrison county, Ohio, November 29, Mr. James Clendening.

The subject of this memoir was a man well known to many of the citizens of Guernsey county, as he lived in Washington for some time, and did an extensive business.  Thus he formed many acquaintances, all of whom will receive the painful intelligence of his death with sorrowful feelings.  Mr. Clendening was a member of the Presbyterian church, and was ever true to its doctrines and practices, earnest and consistent in all outward forms, and with a commendable zeal he labored of the growth and success, of the church of his choice.  His manner was truly pleasing, his address ever courteous and kind-very obliging to his friends and ever repulsed with scorn those things that were mean and disreputable.  He had in the vicinity where he lived warm friends who will mourn his loss.  But he has gone-gone from his dear family who clustered around him for instruction and support, gone from the paths of usefulness-gone from earth’s turmoil and anxieties-from his weary lot in this world’s many conflicts, and may we hope wears a crown of unfading beauty in heaven.  May this divine dispensation so teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Don’t Forget The Old Folks

Don’t forget the old folks,  Love them more and more,

As they with unsteady feet, Near the shining shore,

Let your words be tender, Loving, soft and low,

Let their best days be the best They have known below.

Don’t forget poor father, With his failing sight,

With his locks once thick and brown Scanty now and white;

Though he may be childish, Still do you be kind-

Think of him as years ago, With his master mind.

Don’t forget dear mother, With her furrowed brow,

Once as fair, as smooth and white, As the driven snow.

Are her steps uncertain? Is her bearing poor?

Guide her gently till she stands Safe at Heaven’s door.

Don’t forget the old folks, Love them more and more,

As they with unsteady feet, Near the shining shore.

Let your words be tender, Loving, soft and low,

Let their last days be the best  They have known in low.

A Man Shot Dead at Scott’s Coal Mines.

That spirit of lawlessness and disregard of human life which for some time past seems to have pervaded the minds of certain characters in this community, culminated in the shooting and almost instantaneous death of one of the number on Saturday evening last at Scott’s coal mines, a short distance east of this place.

The McManaway brothers-George, Thomas and Milton were, on the evening in question, under the influence of liquor, and ready for almost any deed of blood. With their passions thus inflamed any pretext was sufficient to engage them in a quarrel.  They traveled more than a mile to gratify their demon-like desire for blood, and the sequel is-the corpse of the youngest brother, Milton.

With a hole in his right breast more than two inches in diameter, his right lung lacerated with thirty or forty shots, the third rib torn away, two or three inches of the fourth one shattered, and his heart perforated.  Thus was he hurried into eternity, with only time enough after the fatal shot was fired to gasp-“My God, Tom, I’m killed!”

The evidence taken before the Coroner’s Jury, does not positively fix the killing upon any one, at though the impression that the charge from a musket in the hands of John Chapman, is that which caused McManaway’s death.  Chapman is an Englishman by birth, a miner by occupation, and has a family at McKeesport, Pa.  He has worked here a part of every year during the past ten, and has the reputation of being a quiet and industrious man.  Shots were also fired by Albert Taylor, a married man, who was born near Wheeling, and is 23 years of age.  He has been engaged in the mines of this county for three years.  Other shots were fired by Lewis H. Taylor, a young man aged about nineteen, born near Mt. Pleasant, Ohio, and who has only been in this county since last April.

The Coroner’s Jury, consisting of John Orme, Thos. Beymer, J. O. Mellyar, John McGee, Wm. Barton and John Harkness, empanelled by Coroner I. A. Oldham on Sunday, held an inquest and returned the following verdict:

“Tom? Milton McManaway came to his death by a gunshot wound inflicted by one of the three persons named herein—Albert Taylor, Lou. Taylor, or John Chapman.”

McManaway was nineteen years old, but was very powerfully built.  The coroner found upon his person a loaded pistol, “billy” and a pocket-knife, beside other effects.

Later-The men, Chapman and the Taylor’s came to town about midnight on the night of the affray, and delivered themselves into hands of the Sheriff, who lodged them in jail.

On Monday a preliminary examination was held before Justice Turner, who held them to bail in the sum of $300 each.  Chapman was successful in procuring the required bond and was released from custody.  The Taylors were released on Wednesday upon the bond of a Mr. McConnehey, of Bridgeport, Ohio.

Accidental Shooting

On Monday last two boys named Bucy and Warne, were out hunting in Center township.  On climbing over a fence Warne’s rifle was accidentally discharged, the ball passing through the body of Bucy from the left to the right side, inflicting a very serious wound.  At last accounts he was not expected to recover.  Here is another terrible warning to all to use the utmost care in carrying or handling fire arms; but how many will heed it?

Sheriff Barnett desires us to respectfully announce to the public that it is very annoying to his family for visitors to go rushing through the jail building and his residence, when there is no one present to conduct them.  Some have even temporarily taken possession of the private rooms of the family.  This is too much, and well bred people will not be guilty of it. He will cheerfully escort, or have it done, persons through the building, if they will take the trouble to notify the occupants of their desire, and hopes that the private apartments of his family will be properly respected by visitors hereafter.

Supposed Murder of Mr. Curtis, of Sharon.

We recently announced the death of a Mr. Curtis, of Sharon, Noble county, formerly of Fairview, in this county, which occurred at Monroeville, on the Sandusky division of the B & O railroad, and which was supposed to have resulted from an accident.  The following, from the Belleville Gazette throws some light upon the subject, and establishes the fact that he was murdered and robbed, by confidence men:

Mr. Curtis came into Monroeville on the B & O road from the South, and while waiting for the other train, was inveigled into a saloon near the depot, by the confidence men, where he was by some means induced to loan them a large sum of money on a bogus draft for eighteen hundred dollars, to be paid when the train reached Toledo.  When the train which passes here at 5:30 arrived, they all three got aboard, but before they had gone into the car, just after the train got started, one of them struck the old gentleman over the head a couple of times with a slung shot or some other heavy weapon, and pushed him off the train.  He fell off backwards, his head striking on a stone, which broke in his skull.  He lingered in an unconscious state until the following mornining, when he died.  Why he was murdered by the confidence men after they had obtained his money, is a mystery, which no one yet has been able to explain.

Monday morning last one of those shocking shocking accidents by fire occurred in our village, resulting in the death of a much esteemed old lady, the wife of Mr. Emanuel Nace.  Mrs. Nace had been in very delicate health for a year or two past and lately had been scarcely able to move about without assistance.   Mr. Nace had gone into the cellar for some coal, leaving his wife sitting in front of the fire on a chair.  Hearing her scream, he rushed up stairs and found her enveloped in flames.  He dashed a bucket of water over her, and then tore the burning clothes off her as rapidly as possible, but before the fire was extinguished she was fatally burned.  Her breast and arms, neck and head were fearfully scorched.   After the burns were dressed, she calmly related how the accident occurred.  She had attempted to sweep the hearth and grate, and the broom having caught fire, she put her foot on it to pat it out.  In doing so her dress caught fire and she was unable to extinguish it.  The accident occurred at 10 A.M. Monday and she died the following morning at 4 o’clock.  Mr. Nace was burned severely on the hands and face in his efforts to save her.  Barnesville Enterprise, 25th ult.

John Hague, an old setter, died recently at his home, near Carlisle.

A little daughter of Samuel Marquis, of Sharon, one day last week, caught fire by standing too close to the grate, and but for the presence of mind of her mother, who wrapped the child up in her own dress, thereby smothering the flames, the little thing would have suffered a fearful death.

David Delong, working on the railroad near Caldwell, came near losing his life by an ax glancing and flying from the hands of another workman.  It came in contact with the handle of an ax in his own hands, and yet inflicted an ugly gash on his head.  Where men are working together in companies, it is necessary to observe due caution.

Horrible Accident

One Man Killed and another Dangerously Hurt.

On Wednesday evening of last week, two young men named Wallace and McCardle, students at the Concord College, got upon the east bound passenger train at concord station to ride to Cassel’s, four miles this way, to attend a debate at Speer’s School house.  They got upon the rear platform of the last car, and remained there.  Upon arriving at Cassel’s they found the train was not going to stop, when one of them pulled the bell rope.  The engineer blew down brakes at the signal from the bell.  Before the train had come to a stop the young men jumped off, one on each side.

When the train stopped the Conductor passed through the cars to learn the cause, but could find no one who wished to get off, and ordered the train to proceed.

Just after the train started up a young man named McNutt, who resides in the vicinity and who was on his way to the School house, heard groaning near the bridge just east of the station, and walked down the track in that direction.  Upon the ice, about a rod from the abutment, he beheld a horrible and sickening sight.  There upon the ice, lay McCardle, literally mashed to pieces and nearly dead, and beside him sat his comrade, Wallace, with his head split open on the forehead and the brain oozing out.

No time was lost in calling for help, and removing the unfortunate beings to the house of Mr. James Farrar, nearly opposite on the National road.  Shortly after this McCardle breathed his last, not having spoken a word after he made the fatal leap from the train.

Wallace, strange to say, was perfectly conscious, and said he had no recollection of how he got off the train, nor how he got hurt.  He had found McCordle by the groaning he made and had dragged him from under the bridge, where he fell, fully a rod away on the ice.

The remains of McDardle were taken to Concord yet that night and on the morning trade seat in his home in Pennsylvania, accompanied by his sister, who was attending school with him.

Wallace wounds were dressed by Dr. Hoge, of Cambridge, and he was removed to his mother’s house in Concord on the next morning.  His chances for recovery are reposted great.

From the circumstances it is known, that McCardle jumped off when the car was on the bridge and going at the rate of twenty miles an hour.  In falling he struck the cross timbers which threw him head foremost against the abatment, from where fell to the ice below.  A clot of blood and hair was found on the stone where his head struck.

Dr. Hoge thinks Wallace jumped before the car had reached the bridge, and that he fell with his head upon a stone, as there was a line of blood from the side where he fell around the bridge and across the creek on the ice to where he found McCardle.

As the young men had not bought tickets, nor entered the car where they could have paid their fare to the conductor and notified him of their desire to get off at Cassels, no blame attaches to the train men or the railroad company.

Wier, of Fairview, died at his residence on Wednesday of last week.  Mr. Wier was one of the oldest and most respected citizens of that part of Guernseycounty, and was regarded with respect and veneration by the people of Fairview and vicinity.  Aged seventy five when he died, he had spent fifty in that village, having opened the second store of the place.  He was always considered perfectly honest in his dealings with his fellow men, and although not a member of church, was an upright and moral man.

Death of An Aged Citizen

On Thursday last it was known among the many friends of Mrs. Sarah Metcalf, that that good lady was dangerously ill, and Friday morning the sad news reached us that she was dead.  She was the widow of Mr. George Metcalf, who preceded her to that “undiscover country” but a few years; each having more than completed the allotted three-score and ten of active usefulness.  Mrs. Metcalf was born in Lancaster county, Pa., 1801, and came to this county in 1813.  She therefore was one of the oldest residents of this section of the State, and with her death another link that binds us to the past is broken.  It is sad to have these aged fathers and mothers passing one by one, from our midst, to sleep on the hill side in the city of the dead; but on the other hand, there is something grand and beautiful in a peaceful close to a well spent life, such as our aged mother experienced.

The funeral took place from the residence of Rev. John Burns, her son-in-law.  Services conducted by Rev. Milligan.  She was followed to her last resting place by a large number of weeping relatives and friends.

Rev. J. P. Caldwell, Pastor of the Presbyterian Church, at Crab Apple, HarrisonCounty, is dead-  He was well known and had many friends in this county.

The people of Summerfield were shocked last Saturday morning with the information that Albert, son of Mr. Nathan Barnes, living near that town, had accidently shot and killed his little sister.  The boy aged about ten years, it appears had loaded a shot gun, and while handling it in a careless manner, it was discharged, and the load shot striking his sister, a bright little girl, perhaps four years old, in the back of the head, produced instant death.  This is only another warning against the careless handling of fire arms, that will pass unheeded by all except those who have suffered by the unfortunate calamity.

The boiler in the flouring mill at East Union; exploded last Wednesday afternoon, and Elzy Archer, who was in the engine room, was so badly scalded, that he died in a few hours after the accident,  Two others, Daniel Powell and John Rossiter, were also badly, if not fatally injured.  Powell and Archer were standing in front of the boiler, and Rossiter was sitting in a chair close by, when the boiler, an old and dangerous affair that should have been condemned months ago, gave way, and the hot water and steam pouring out through an orifice five inches long, upon the unfortunate men, struck Archer in the face and breast, literally cooking him to death.  Powell and Rossiter are still alive, though horrible scalded.

Young Archer who died, was a son of Nathan Archer, a citizen of the vicinity, and had in company with Rossiter came to the mill to get some grinding done, and were in the engineer room with Powell, the engineer, warming, after their cold ride, when the explosion occurred.

It has been but little over a year since the same boiler gave way in the same manner, but without the loss of life.

Another Pioneer Departed

It is with regret that we chronicle the death of another of the early settlers of this county; one that saw Cambridge a wilderness and was spared until recently, to see its growth.  John Ogier, Sr., died on the night of the 13th inst., having his seventy second anniversary.

Born on the Isle of Guernsey on the 17th of Oct 1799, he was brought by his parents, to America in 1807, and settling in this county, one and a half miles north of Cambridge, he there grew to manhood and passed to a ripe old age, living and dying upon the same farm that his parents first selected and with them his body rests hard by the old home.

His name was proverbial for honesty and uprightness and none knew him without respect.

Thus one follows another in rapid succession, of the old people who in early times endured many hardships and suffered many privations in opening to civilization the unbroken forests of the west, and to-day we enjoy the results of their industry.

The old land marks are passing away; but few are spared to us now and they are feeble grown; may we love them, if only for the past and cherish them as mementoes of days long gone.

E. Church, and a faithful teacher in the Sabbath school.  On Monday afternoon a large concourse of relations and friends laid all that was mortal of “Mattie” in the family lot, beside a father, sisters and brothers who had preceded her to “the better land.”  The mother sister and brothers have the profound sympathy of the entire community.

A young man named William Coleman, an employee of Mr. Cope, of Shortceek township, accidently shot himself on Wednesday evening of last week with fatal results.  In the evening he loaded a rifle for the purpose of shooting a cat.   It is supposed he set the rifle over a low fence while watching for the cat, and when he attempted to take it up the hammer must have struck against the fence, discharging the contents into the side of his neck, and passing up through the brain, resulting in instant death.

(From the Coshocton Democrat Aug 6.)

Last Wednesday evening, at Boyd’s Mill in White Eyes township, this county, a frightful accident occurred which resulted in the death of a very estimable young man, Washington Gardner, son of that well known citizen, Adam Gardner.  The fact as we learn them from an eye witness, are as follows:  A man by the name of Ferrill, intending to kill a beef, invited Mr. Adam Gardner and his son Washington, a young man about nineteen years old to assist him.   The animal had been shot and felled to the ground, but was struggling and plunging violently.  The gun was reloaded an placed against a sapling near by, where the animal was lying, when one of the party, fearing that the frantic animal in its death  struggles would get to where the gun was, told the young man, Washington Gardner, to remove it farther away.  The sapling against which the gun was placed stood on the verge of an abrupt little bank, at the bottom of which rested the but of the gun.  The young man seized the gun by the barrel well up toward the muzzle and drew it up toward him, when the lock striking against the bank discharging the piece.  The ball entered the right temple about one inch above the eye, passed backward though the head, penetrating the brain.  The victim of the accident lingered in a state of unconsciousness during the night and until ten o’clock next day, when death relieved his sufferings.

Shocking Accident

A Young Man Accidentally Shoots his Comrade..Distressing Result

On Tuesday morning last a shocking and distressing accident occurred at Spencer Station, this county, the particulars of which we obtained from Mr. Samuel Fordyce, of that place.

Two telegraph operators, named Stellers and Ayres, and aged respectively 26 and 21 years, and who were warm personal friends, were on duty at the station, Stellers being a substitute for a regular operator who was absent.  They were both in he office on Tuesday morning, and Ayres went into the baggage room and brought our a double-barrelled shot gun that belongs to another operator at Zanesville, for the purpose of sending it home as the owner had requested by telegraph!  Stellers was practicing on a violin, when Ayres walked in with the gun, saying: “Now play that tune of mine or I’ll shoot you,”  and no sooner were the words out than the loud report of the gun startled all in the house, and Stellers fell fainting to the floor.  The charge of shot had entirely severed the bone of his right leg just below the knee, and left the limb hanging by the flesh and skin on the sides.  The poor fellow was cared for as quick as possible and a physician summoned, who amputated the leg just above the knee, at the same time despairing of the recovery of Stellers.

Ayres says he cannot tell for his life how the gun was discharged, that he had no idea of it being loaded, and that he was careful not to point it toward Stellers.  He is deeply troubled over the affair, and refuses to be consoled with the admissions of his friends and those present that it was altogether accidental.  Fears are entertained that his mind will become deranged from excessive grief for his friend, and the consciousness that he is to blame for the terrible misfortune.

Death In A Well

Accidental Drowning of Henry McCartney, of Cambridge.

On Monday afternoon last, the many friends and acquaintances of Mr. Henry McCartney, proprietor of the steam mill at this place, were shocked at hearing the report of his sudden and horrible death in the well at the mill.  It appears that about two months since a trap door in the mill fell upon Mr. McCartney’s head, fracturing the skull and slightly affecting his brain.  Since that time he has been subject to fainting or dizzy spells when excited or overheated.  On Monday, after dinner, he walked up town and back to the mill in a hurry after something, and soon after found that something was wrong with the pumping apparatus in the well that supplies the boilers with water.  He took off his mill clothes and put on an old suit that he used for such purposes, and descended the well by a ladder, from which he fell into the water and was drowned.  It is supposed that going into the damp, cool well immediately after a long walk up town in the broiling hot sun, created one of the fainting fits, in which he was utterly helpless.

His two sons who work in the mill did not miss their father until after three o’clock, when one discovered his clothes neatly piled up in the engine room.  Search was instituted, and as soon as one of the sons had gone to the house and found him not there, nor about the mill, the terrible truth was plain to all.  A rope with grapples was at once lowered into the well and the body drawn out, form which every spark of life had flown.  At the request of the family Drs. Wall and Hoge worked for half an hour to try and bring back a sign of animation, but all to no purpose.

Mr. McCartney’s watch, which he had at dinner on the day of his death, cannot be found.  His pocket-book was carefully placed in the fold of the knee of his pantaloons, and it is thought that the watch was there also.

Mr. M. and family, consisting of his wife and several children, came here form Barnesville in the spring of 1871, and by their pleasing manners, industry and general intelligence, have gained the good will of all our citizens.  The remains will be interred on Thursday (to-day) in the Cambridge, Cemetery.

Mr. McCartney had his life insured for $5,000 in six different companies, making $30.000 in all, which will be paid to his family shortly.

Suicide of F. A. Thompson, Esq.

From the Zanesville Signal, 25th

This old and respected citizen, known to almost every one in the county, committed suicide last Monday, by hanging.  For many years Mr. Thompson had been proprietor of the West Zanesville flouring mill, carrying strict attention to an extensive business. He was at the time of his death, and also for many years previous, representative of the First Ward in the City Council, of which he was a very influential member, giving more than ordinary attention to the duties of his position.  He had latterly suffered from the great nervous prostration, in consequence of which he recently disposed of his mill in the 8thWard, in the hope that relieved from the cares of his business his health would become re-established, a result which did not follow.  On the 13th inst., in company with Mr. Austin Berry, he went to Cincinnati, both having been summoned to serve on the Grand Jury of the U.S. District Court.  There he become exceedingly depressed, and, conscious of his condition, expressed himself as unfit to serve, and his health failing, Mr. Berry succeeded in getting himself, and Mr. Thompson relieved, when they returned home.  Last Monday morning, he left his bed at about five o’clock, put on his pantaloons and slippers and left the house.  Not soon returning, Mrs. Thompson went out to look for him and unable to find him directed her son to search for him as she was much concerned about his condition.  The son found him in the hay loft suspended by a small clothes line which was tied to a board nailed across the rafters near the top of the roof.  He had adjusted the end of the rope about his neck and jumped from a beam crossing the loft, leaving his feet within a few inches of the floor.  When cut down the body was still warm, but life had vanished.  Mr. Thompson was about fifty-five years old, had been a resident of this city since boyhood, and always sustained the character of an honest man, and will long be remembered and his untimely fate deplored.

Death By The Bullet

Suicide of E. A. Abbott, an old Citizen of Cambridge.

On Wednesday afternoon at a little after 2 o’clock, our people were startled and shocked by the exclamation that went form mouth to mouth, that Mr. Abbott had shot himself through the brain.  In a few moments a large crowd had congregated around the residence of the unfortunate family, to learn the particulars of the terrible act, which are about as follows:

At 2 o’clock Mr. Abbott left his place of business, the freight office of the B. & O. R.R. depot, to get his dinner, as he remarked to Mr. John Fordyce, the ticket agent.  Reaching the house which is situated one square north and in sight of the depot, Mr. Abbott passed through to his bedroom and took form his bureau drawer a small single barrel breech loading pistol, and walked on through the kitchen into the back yard, where he inserted a cartridge in the pistol, and then returned into the house.  Seeing the family in the dining room he passed on into the front room and closed the door after him.  In a second after the report of the pistol startled the household, and his daughter rushed in to behold her father upon the floor and the blood streaming from his right temple.

It was the work of an instant only to call to neighbors and send for physicians, who removed Mr. Abbott into his bedroom, where an examination of the wound was made only to find, that it was mortal, the ball having passed in at the right temple and lodged in the brain.  In an entirely unconscious condition the sufferer lingered an hour, and at near three o’clock, he breathed his last upon earth.

Various are the rumors in circulation that relate to the suicide and the probable cause.  Last spring Mr. Abbott had a severe sickness, closely resembling paralysis, and since then some of his nearest friends have observed his strange actions.

Domestic difficulties are supposed to have had something to do with the suicide.  The wife and daughter were to leave on Friday for Washington city, to spend the winter with another daughter already residing there.  It is known that Mr. Abbott strongly opposed their going at first, but from appearances had given way and was thought to be reconciled.

Mr. Abbott, had been in charge of the B. & O. depot here since 1858, and always has had the respect of our citizens.  He was 57 years of age, of large portly frame, and a man of the most rigid business habits.

Coroner Oldham held an inquest on Wednesday evening, and the verdict of the jury was in accordance with the above facts.  The remains will be interred at Zanesville, his former home, to-morrow.

On Thursday evening last a very interesting event transpired in this city, especially to the parties directly connected with the affair on the occasion of the marriage of Miss Eva B. Booth, daughter of Captain John K. Booth, a highly accomplished young lady, to M. Edward Tingle, East of Wheeling, West Va.

The attendants were Miss Fanny Woodburn, of Madison, Indiana Miss Kate Tingle, of Cambridge, Ohio; Miss May Booth, of this city; Captain Ed. McHaman, of the Steamer Andes; Captain Eugene Booth, and George R. Tingle, of Wheeling.  A brilliant reception took place immediately after the ceremony at the home of the bride’s father, which was largely attended by friends in the city and from a distance.   May their pathway through life be strewn with flowers, and may success crown their undertaking.

A Mother’s Sacrifice.

Life Lost in Endeavoring to Save that of Her Child

The Evansville (Indiana) Courier of the 11th instant, has the following:  Night before last, about six o’clock, the inhabitants of Henderson, Ky., were shocked at a distressing and fatal accident, which happened to a most estimable lady of that place.  While Mrs. W. H. Lewis, whose husband is a boot and shoe merchant, was sitting at home, after supper, with her little ones gathered around, her little baby by some means managed to turn the contents of a lighted lamp over itself.  The clothing of the child immediately caught fire, and the frantic mother seized it and in her wild excitement, not knowing where to go, rushed down the stairway toward the street.  Her piercing screams attracted the attention of Mr. Joseph Merryman, who was passing the house at the time.  He met Mrs. Lewis at the bottom of the steps-her own clothing had caught from the burning garments of her darling babe-he quickly seized and by a very strong exertion wrested the child from her arms.  Overcome by his superior strength, she let go of the child and fled into the street, screaming in a most heartrending manner.  Some one else about this time ran up, and taking hold of Mrs. Lewis, threw her on the ground and rolled her over to suppress the flames.

Sad to say, however, the dreadful element had done its destructive work, and the unfortunate lady was carried back into the house fatally injured.  She lingered in great pain until one o’clock the next morning, when her spirit took its flight.

The child by her sacrificing love and devotion, was spared, and escaped with but a few slight burns.

A Disasterous Run Off

Mr. Vail, who was on his way from Wheeling with a two-horse load of barrels and boxes, stopped in town on Thursday evening last to warm, and while he was by the fire, his horses took fright and ran off, at terrible speed.  At the west end of town they came in collision with a two-horse team belonging to Mr. Jos. Butler, of this place.  The runaway wagon struck his saddle-horse and shivered his hip and leg, and injured him beyond recovery.  Mr. Butler had his horse shot to put him out of his misery.  The collision was so terrific that it threw the two men who were on top of the load of corn forward among the horses, and the runaway wagon was upset, leaving the boxes in the wagon the same as when on its wheels.  The horses ran on with the tongue of the wagon, and when captured it was found that one of them was injured in the breast, having struck something about the wagon.  Fortunately the men on Mr. B’s wagon escaped with slight injury.

Boy Shot

On Saturday last, Master Ed. Neiswanger, nine years old, son of Major Neiswanger, concluded, as his older brothers had gone hunting, he and a neighbor boy of similar age, would have some sport.  He stealthily took from an up-stairs mantle-piece a loaded pistol, and when but a few steps from the house attempted to cock it by placing it upon his right thigh.  The hammer slipped and the ball sped its way through the fleshy part of the left thigh, fortunately not striking the bone or cutting an artery.  Messrs. Wm. Johnson and A. P. Blair passing by, discovering him lying on the ground with a pistol by his side, asked him what was the matter?  He declined to answer.  They picked him up, and carried him into the house, telling his mother that they thought he was shot.  She replied, “Oh no, Eddy, you are not shot.”  “Yes.”  He said emphatically, “I tell you I am shot!”  They took off his clothes, and found the blood running down both sides of his leg-the ball having passed through his leg and clothing.  He is getting along very well, but does not expect to go hunting again this winter, which is a matter of great regret to him.  Next!

John Bratton – – A Pioneer Sketch.

From the Zanesville Signal, Dec. 8th

It is an agreeable incident of an editor’s vocation to now and then turn away from the more stirring duties of his profession, and from the men of a later to those of an older generation, and jot down and put on record sketches of the lives of those who battled with pioneer hardships, and planted and nursed our civilization in the wilderness.

In the whirl and excitements of the intense life we lead, we are apt to forget our obligations to the brave men who wrested from wild nature an savage men, our fair heritage of fruitful fields, with their golden harvests, pleasant homes, and the thousand and one blessings of our daily life.  In their comfortable enjoyment we forget that they are the peaceful fruit of many a stormy planting, the summer harvest, after long winters of pioneer struggle, danger and deprivation.

Among the few early pioneers of this section, yet living, is the subject of this sketch, Mr. John Bratton.  He was born in Mifflin township, in what is now Juniatta county, Pa., March 14, 1789, and with his parents, first crossed the Ohio river at Wheeling, December 4, 1799, now almost three-quarters of a century ago.  The family first moved on to lands on McMahan’s Creek, Belmont county, seven miles south-west of where St. Clairsville now stands, and camped near a spot called Big Lick, where buffalo and elk were wont to resort.  John and his elder brother Edward, (yet living near Cambridge, aged 88 years and over) a few days after going into camp at his Lick, found in the vicinity a gigantic elk’s head and horns, the latter so long, that when placed on the ground, inverted, men six feet high could walk under the skull.

In 1803, Mr. Bratton’s father leased a place on the Old Wheeling road, (then called Zane’s Trail), seven miles west of St. Clairsville, on which he remained two years.  In 1805, the father entered two quarter sections on the Brushy Fork of Wills’ Creek, then in Muskingum county, but now in Madison township, Guernsey county, and on the Steubenville road.  Their nearest neighbor to eastward was fifteen miles distant, and the nearest westward, at Cambridge, where there was then but one house, that of John Beatty, who kept a ferry.

The family remained on Brushy Fork seven years, when the father sold out, John remaining two years longer, and continuing to keep the public house of his father, in company with his widowed sister, whose husband, Robert Warnock, had been killed by the Indians.  In 1812 he went into the army as Orderly Sergeant of a Company, and was engaged against the Seneca Indians, and is still receiving a pension from the government for his services.  In 1815 he was married to his cousin, Elizabeth Bratton.  After residing on Brushy Fork from 1815 to 1835, when his wife died, and having married his second wife, Ann Smith, he sold his property in Guernsey county, and bought Peter Livengood’s mill and farm on Salt Creek, Salem township, this county, in 1836.

By the way, as a digression, this Peter Livengood was the man who carried sixteen bushels of wheat, at once, to-wit one bag on each shoulder, one on his back, and one on his breast.

Mr. Bratton’s second wife’s health failing, in 1839, he rented his mill, and leased a tavern in Adamsville.  During this year he lost a son by his first wife, another by his second, a daughter of the same, and also his wife, the daughter dying on Saturday, one of the sons on the following Sunday, and his wife on the following Wednesday, thus breaking up his family, and leaving in his charge an infant child.  The cause of these terrible bereavements was scarlet fever and crysipelas.  In 1840 he moved back to the mill, and, in 1841, he was married, for the third time, to the widow Hinman, of Zanesville, who still survives.  By this last marriage one child, a daughter, was born, who is married and residing in Illinois; six children and two wifes having departed this life.

John Bratton, himself, still lives, a hale, hearty man, intelligent and vigorous mind, and able to narrate many reminiscences of interest.  He voted the first time for Thomas Jefferson; has taken the Democratic paper of this county ever since the first one published by David Robb, and his Signal is paid for well into the year 1873.

A Man Murders his two Children

On Thursday last, at Columbiana, in this State a fienp in human shape butchered his two innocent children with a hatchet.  A dispatch from the scene of the dreadful act, says:

This quiet community was thrown into the most intense excitement this forenoon by a report that Eber Porter, living about two miles east of this place, had murdered his two little girls, aged respectively one and three years.  Some of his neighbors arrived soon after and confirmed the report.  Porter was living with his father-in-law, Mr. Henry Flickinger, and was in the room, alone with the children playing about the room.  His wife was at the time up stairs doing chamberwork.  Hearing some unusual noise she came down and found the children dead, and her husband going out with the bloody hatchet in his hand.  He walked to Leetonia, a distance of five miles, where he was arrested, and confessed the murder.  He was taken to the New Lisbon jail to await his trial. He had long born a bad reputation.  He gives no reason, and none can be assigned for the terrible deed.

She had been suffering from a severe cold, and on Friday evening retired as well as usual with that exception.  Early in the morning, her companion, a young niece, arose and fixed up the fire, when they exchanged a few words, the niece asking her aunt if she had slept well, to which she replied in the affirmative.  After sitting by the fire for half an hour the young lady called to her aunt and received no answer.  She called again with the same result, when she became alarmed, and called Mr. Smith and a neighbor, who proceeded to the room to find the old lady cold in death.  She was 77 years of age, and had resided with her nephew for fourteen years past.  The cause of her death was pronounced to be disease of the heart.  Her remains were interred on Sabbath afternoon in the Cambridge cemetery.

Shot.-Charles Trimble, a young man residing near Olive Green, on Christmas day, standing on a log while out shooting, let his gun slip down towards the ground, and the hammer striking the log, discharged the piece, the charge of about seventy-five shot centering his arm about the elbow and penetrating upwards lodged around the shoulder, inflicting serious, and it may be fatal injuries.

Obituary

Mrs. Sarah Frances Mahaffey, daughter of Thomas and Lydia Scott, and wife of J. Perry Mahaffey, was born in Cambridge, Guernsey County, Ohio, July 23rd, 1847  The subject of this brief notice manifested from her infancy a remarkable mild, and gentle disposition.  Always obedient to her parents, and universally kind to others, shedding sunlight over society with whom she mingled.  In early life she became the subject of awakening, and experienced the converting grace of God, in her twentieth year; and was admitted to membership in the Methodist Episcopal Church, April 7th, 1867, under the Pastorate of Rev. A. L. Petty.  For six years she continued an exemplary member of the church of her choice; always faithful in her attendance upon the ordinances of God; especially, did she love the class meeting, and was greatly beloved by all who knew her.  United in marriage to her now bereaved, and greatly afflicted husband March 21st, 1872, and died in Cambridge, of Puerperal fever and inflammation of the brain, Sabbath afternoon, February 6th, 1873, and was in the 26th year of her age, and had been married less than one year, and left a babe only one week old.  Prior to falling asleep in Jesus, she gave satisfactory evidence to her Pastor and friends, of her acceptance with God, and trust in her Savior. On one occasion when all thought her dying, she requested them to sing; and then with a clear sweet voice sang one stanza, and chorus of her favorite hymn:

Other refuge have I none;

Hangs my helpless soul on thee;

Leave, O, leave me not alone,

Still support and comfort me.

Cho.-I am trusting Lord in Thee

Dear Lamb of Calvary;

Humbly at thy cross I bow,

Jesus saves me, saves me now.

The funeral took place on Monday, February 10th, and was attended by a large number of relatives, friends and neighbors.  Could our brother’s sorrows be diminished in proportion to the number of those who share in them, the fountain of tears would soon be dry, and the flood of grief exhausted, by being divided into so many streams.  Though this cannot assuage his grief, and allay his sorrow, yet it must afford some consolation to have been blest with a companion so universally beloved. We deeply sympathize with the stricken husband in this, the sorest, and saddest of all bereavements.  But dark as the cloud is, it has a silver lining, for he does not mourn as those who have no hope, his loss is her eternal gain.  We therefore commend him and his motherless babe, to Him who said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor, and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”

Samuel Crouse, Pastor M. E. Church, Cambridge, Ohio, Feb. 25, 1873

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Died, on the 16th inst., at her residence in Cambridge, of Puerperal Fever, Mrs. Jane Goodrich Mitchener, aged 28 years.   It has become our sad duty to record the death of Mrs. Mitchener.  She came to this town at the time of her marriage, about six years ago, and since that time, this has been her home.  She was very modest and retiring in her disposition; yet she became well known, and her rare excellence made her to be held in high estimation by all.  She came to us a Presbyterian, from the church of New Philadelphia, and has maintained an irreproachable Christian character, and though unexpectedly summoned to die, bore all the evidences of a faith that was triumphant over the last enemy; evincing that she had not been unmindful of the injunction, “Watch, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the son of man cometh.”  The deep sympathies of this community are with her loved ones. God bless her husband with his three motherless children, in this unexpected and irrepairable loss; and let the Bible in which she had carefully marked many passages, that furnished food sweet to her taste, be the medium through which she, “being dead shall yet speak.”

Donahoo, in the 28th year of his age.  Death has made a sad break in a household where it has often entered.  The repeated bereavements have not prepared the members of this family to submit now with a pan of sorrow.  The widowed mother-in-law bereaved of a kind husband, and an affectionate only son, is left in this vale of tears with her only daughter in her youthful prime now widowed also.  She who was a few years since the blooming bride, was lately bereaved of her only child, a bright and lovely boy, now mourns the death of her kind and gentle husband; the loved partner of her youth; a widow left in lonliness with her widowed mother.  May the widow’s God be their protection.  MR. D. Was a man of very kind disposition and very affable in his intercourse with his fellow men. He, the Benjamin of a tender Christian mother, yielded to the influence of her pious council, and her faithful prayers.  Although he never made a public profession of religion, yet he yielded to its claims and led his hou. choid in prayer to God, and when stricken with disease without a murmur resigned himself to his will, emphatically declaring that “rather then recover and live a life of sin, he would die now and leave the attractions of earth.”   He prayed fervently for grace and for salvation and his last words were “wife, Jesus, heaven.”  Rev. Samuel Mahaffey preached a sermon on the mortality of man and the endowing nature of the word of God, from 1 Peter, 24,25.  Rev. D. Rhodes officiated in the Masonic ceremonies and his body was deposited in the tomb.

Died of diptheria at Liberty, Ohio, Feb. 14th, 1873, Eddy, son of G. and M.J. Grimes, aged 5 years, 8 months and 7 days.

A Belmont County Mystery-We learn from Mr. Carleton, of this place, the following particulars relating to an affair on Captina Creek, Belmont County.  He was informed that the body of a young man named Gregg was found in Milhorn’s mill dam, on Captina Creek, on the 18th inst.  He had been missing from his grandmother’s; where he lived, since the night of the first day of December last, it is alleged that that night he was called from his home between 10 and 11 o’clock by two young men, friends of his, with whom he had arranged to go to Indiana.  Young Gregg failed to return to his home; and his companions were not afterwards seen in the neighborhood, until recently one of them returned.  A letter received by Gregg’s mother, in Indiana, informed her that her son was very sick at a certain place; a trip there revealed the fact that no such person had ever been there; another letter informed her that he had died and was buried in a certain place; another trip was made with the same results as the first.

About the time mentioned above some boys were fishing in the mill dam and had found a boot in which they deposited their bait.  An uncle of Gregg’s came along and, noticing the boot, asked them where they got it.  They replied, in the dam. He took the boot home and informed his neighbors of his belief that it was one worn by his nephew at the time of his disappearance.  The neighbors turned out and, with hooks, dragged the dam, but failed to obtain the body; finally they drained the dam when the body was discovered.  The front teeth had been broken in and the opinion prevailed that he had been foully dealt with.  At the time of his disappearance Gregg had $160 in money; a short time previous to his death he had loaned one of his friends $40.  How Gregg came to his death is a mystery that time alone can solve.-Spirit of Democracy.

On the 13th inst. at about midnight the village of New Concord, seven miles West of Cambridge on the B. & O. R. R. was thrown into wild commotion by the shooting of Thomas Smith by Dr. Lewis, both of whom resided at Zanesville.  It appears that Smith who was a clerk at the Roundhouse of the B. & O. R. R. at Zanesville had conceived a passion for the daughter of Dr. Lewis who was not loth to requite his leigal affliction, and Smith on the night proclaimed a buggy at Zanesville and brought the daughter, who is described a neat, interesting girl, to New Concord.  The pair on arriving at New Concord sought lodging at a hotel, representing themselves to be man and wife, the landlord was suspicious and refused them admittance, and they went on to seek accommodations at another hotel. While on the way they discovered Dr. Lewis in pursuit.  The couple fled to an old house, Smith assisting the girl away.  The father commanded them to halt, but they did not stop, until a pistol ball fired by the father, through the right lung of the male offender put a stop to their flight.  A clamor, a crowd, and excitement followed, earnest Smith acknowledged that which he was a married man with several children.  The girl clung to Smith and refused to go with officer and the threatened to shoot another who ordered her to obey her father. The father ultimately succeeded in inducing her to go home with him, which they did in Smith’s livery. The Dr. was arrested and held to bail in the sum of $1500 for his appearance at Court.  It is thought that Smith will recover.

We understand that the father has heretofore had some trouble with his wayward daughter on one occasion taking her home from a house of bad repute.

Tragedy at Wheeling.

At about 11 o’clock Saturday morning a man named Martin A. G. Evans, a printer by trade, but at present in the employ of the signal service in Cincinnati, went to visit a Mrs. Dunlap, whom he was very desirous of marrying.  He was very jealous of a Mr. Flannegan who resided with Mrs. Dunlap.  Upon entering the house he went directly to Flannegan’s room, and finding him lying on the bed, drew a revolver on Flannegan, who jumped up and seized the weapon, when in the scuffle it went off.  The ball injured the second finger of Evans hand, and passed through Flannegan’s hand.  Mrs. Dunlap and her sister rushed into the room and Evans, upon observing here, tired to direct the weapon toward her but Flannegan turned it away every time.  The second shop passed threw the skirt of Mrs. Dunlap dress and lodged in the door.   The third shot inflicted a scalp wound on Evans, and the forth lodged in Evans’ brain, causing death in a few minutes.  The parties cognizant relieve Flannegan of any intention to turn the course of the weapon toward Evans, his aim being evidently to secure the weapon, or, failing in that to prevent any injury being inflicted until the revolver was emptied.

The inquest letters were found on Evans addressed to his mother; also to a leading physician of this city, stating his firm intention of shooting Mrs. Dunlap, and then killing himself.  The jury acquitted Mr. Flannegan, all the evidence proving his attempts were only to save Evans from bloodshed.

Sad Shooting

On the morning of last Monday, a little child of one of our colored citizens, William Dade, was shot and instantly killed by a ball from a revolver, in the hands of an older brother.  So many different rumors are in circulation that it is difficult to obtain the facts, and as there was on one present at the occurrence except the little children of the family, the exact circumstances will probably never be known.  It seems that a negro by the name of Gant, was stopping with Dade, who keeps a boarding house.  Gant kept in his room, hanging against the wall, an old satchel in which was a loaded revolver.  William Dade, aged about eight years had taken the revolver from the satchel and was playing with it; his little brother, about eighteen months old, in the sport, got his hand on it and tried to retain it, the older boy attempting to take it form him..  Some way in the effort, the revolver was discharged, the ball striking the youngest child in the right eye, passed through the brain, and came out on the back part of the head.  The little fellow died instantly with a smile on his lips.

During his severe and protracted illness, which he bore with great patience, he was attended by skillful physicians, fond parents, loving sisters and kind friends.

He was a young man of unusual promise, a kind and dutiful son, a loving brother and a genial companion.  He was modest and retiring, with a fine sense of honor and manly bearing.  In scholarship he was quick and accurate constant and prompt in his attendance on the Sabbath School, he appropriated and cherished divine truth and when he was not aware that mortal car heard him, he gave thanks to God for the provision of the gospel, saying “O God, I thank thee for they plan of salvation for poor, lost sinner, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”  Often repeating:

“On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand

And cast a wishful eye;

To Canaan’s fair and happy land,

Where my possessions lie.’

“I’m going home to Jesus,” &c.

Rev. Robt Tannehill conducted the funeral services assisted by Rev.’s Hutchison, Elser and Fiett.  A very large concourse of people of the town and surrounding country, the superintendents, teachers and scholars of the Sabbath schools showed their sympathy and esteem by accompanying his remains to the cemetery, where we laid him in his last resting place on the calm evening of the holy Sabbath, whilst the bright rays of the setting sun broke forth from beyond the clouds-glorious emblem of life and hope beyond the grave.  Com.

Frank Creighton delights in another son.  He calls this one William Kennon.  The younger one is Wilson Shannon.  What will you call the next.

On last Saturday, during the absence of their father, Stout Patterson, of Center township, his little sons, aged seven and nine, procured the axe; the older one used it to cut the end off a small stick as it was pushed under the axe by the other boy.  By a mis-directed stroke the axe came down on the ends of the two fore fingers.

As surely as the strong tree goes down before the tempest, or the fading petals fall at the breath of  the zephyrs, so surely must all whether strong or weak, be stricken away by death.  On yesterday this lesson, which the living can never learn, was again called up to us, as an acquaintance, a neighbor, and schoolmate of our younger years was laid away in the tomb.  The event brought up to us the vanished past, when the lessons of this life were being learned, and here in contrast was the lesson of the dead.

Mrs. Amanda M. Rosemond, whose death awakens these reflections, after a protracted suffering, died on last Tuesday, and was yesterday buried by the side of her lately deceased husband.  Her death, though long expected, is deeply mourned by an extended circle of friends and acquaintances.

Obituaries.

On Friday, August 22nd, 1873, Mrs. Elizabeth Franklin Amos, wife of John M. Amos, of Caldwell, Ohio.

Died at Cambridge, Aug 26th, 1873, Mrs. Francis Steele, in her 60th year, of acute inflammation of the stomach and bowels, after a very brief illness of 20 hours.

For years she has been very retiring, as the result of physical affliction, although when in youth and health she was very cheerful and lively.  She was cultivated, refined and sensitive, and those who knew her best are satisfied that she had a firm trust in the Savior, and that she has passed from the home she aimed to make attractive to that “house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”

She left in deep sorrow, a husband, son and daughter, who have the tender sympathies of all acquainted with them.  The husband is left lonely and desolate, as the son is a teacher in Evansville, Ind.  And the daughter the wife of Rev. Howard of Chicago. Mrs. Howard arrived in time for the funeral services, conducted by Revs. Conkle, Churchill and McFarland.  Her remains were attended to their resting place in the cemetery on the 29th by many friends and neighbors.  W. H. McF.

Our departed sister entered into covenant relation with God at an early age, identifying hers if with the Presbyterian church, and after marriage she joined the Lutheran church with her husband.  Such was her amiable nature, toned by divine grace, and so perfect was her daily walk and conversation that she won the affections of all with whom she associated,, and it may be truly said of her, “None Knew her but to love her.”  And especially during the spring did she endear herself to her friends, after telling them she would not be with them very long.  Her great delight was to make her home pleasant for her little family, and daily did she gather children around her to instruct them and point them to Christ as the way, the truth and the life.  She suffered much pain for the last year, and especially the last few days of her life, but her trust was such, sad her faith so bright that, amid her greatest sufferings, she would exclaim.  “Jesus is right here.”  A few hours before her death she seemed inspired to give her final council to the weeping ones around her bed.  She had a word for each one. Her words were so fitly chosen, her thoughts so heavenly, that, methinks, we felt as Moses much have felt in the mountain when “he talked with the Lord in heaven.”  Many precious promises did she repent but upon no one did she dwell with more fervor than these blessed words, “The blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin.”  She requested her friends to sing her favorite hymns, “There is a fountain filled with blood,” and “O God of Jacob by whose bund thy people still are fed:” uniting her voice with theirs, singing the hymns throughout. Truly we felt we were very near a heavenly home as we thus joined in songs of praise with one already filled with the powers of that light which shines in one eternal day.  Many friends came to pay respect t the departed saint. The ministers of the different churches in the place participated in the services.  The sermon was preached by her pastor from 1 John I 17; “The blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin.”  We laid her body in the quiet city of the dead; to await the general resurrection in the last day, and the life of the world to come, but we felt her spirit had only stepped from the natural house, which is of the earth, earthy, and passed into the house not made with hand eternal in the heavens.   And now as we review her spiritual life and spiritual council, we cannot but say in our hearts:

To thee as to our cov’nent God

We’ll our whole selves resign;

And thankfully own that all we are

And all we have is thine.”

And only hope and pray to meet our friend gone before.  She leaves a husband, four children and many friends to mourn their loss which is her gain.             J. W. Elser.

They were saved, but an noble life was lost. Mr. Hendrix;s parents reside here.

In Memoriam

At a called meeting of Cambridge Encampment, No. 150, I. O. O. F., September 15th, 1873.

Resolved, 1. That in view of the sad intelligence reaching this body, of the unexpected death of Brother H. B. Goodrich, of Sharon, Noble county, and a member of Shilo Encampment, such action be taken by this lodge as will testify to our esteem for the brother while in life,

Resolved, 11. That a committee of three be appointed to draft resolutions, and that the Hall be draped in mourning for the period of thirty days.

Resolved, 111, that a copy of the proceedings of this Encampment be handed to the Jeffersonian and times for publication.

Whereas, It ahs pleased an all-wise Providence to remove our esteemed and beloved brother H. B. Goodrich, late member of Shilo Encampment, and

Whereas, we recognize in his loss n calamity as well to this Encampment as to the Order at large, in the loss of his intelligent, faithful and highly esteemed service.

Resolved, By the Cambridge Encampment, That in this hour of mourning we turn for consolation to the memory of his diversified talent, his sterling character, his high worth, both public and private, and his endearing attributes as a christian, brother, gentleman and friend.

The event which has called forth these resolutions, is very sad indeed; we feel it is a solemn and impressive moment when we are called upon to offer our last tribute of respect to the memory of one who so lately occupied a place with us.  His voice will be heard no more to council us to moderation and wisdom, but our brother has gone to “that bourne from whence no traveler returns.”  His connections with this life, its struggles, its sorrows and hopes are broken.  His kindly greeting will meet us no more; and in that place where he was more highly prized he will be more sadly missed.  The domestic circle will see him and hear his voice no more forever.  It is upon such occasions that we ought to look back upon the days that are passed, in order to ascertain whether we have done something to ameliorate the sufferings of humany, to elevate man to a higher state of existence or whether we had done that which we would like to cradicate from the records of memory and to cast into the sea of oblivion so that the dark waters might close over it forever.

But while we mourn for the dead and sympathize with the surviving friends, let us not forget our duty to the universal family, so that when the Chief Patriarch of the universe shall sound the gavel which shall be the token of our departure, we shall leave behind us characters beautified with all the Christian virtues of our departed brother.  Farewell Brother, Farewell.                W. H. H. McIlyar, T. C. Marsh, J. M. Woodward, Com.

Woman Killed.

Her Skull Crushed-Her Leg and Arm and Ribs Broken

A sad affray from whiskey.

As you go eastwardly on the National road, and approach Fairview, it will be remembered that you sweep through a beautiful little valley and immediately rise on a large and steep circling activity until you reach the west end of town.  To your right is barren banks and a spring, to your left a deep hollow where two gullies join, the one from the North dropping down just below a prominent boulder of many tons in weight.  In this last hollow on last Friday afternoon,

A Dead Woman Was found

Just above stood an old log house known for years as the old Meredith property.  In it David Bowen and his wife have lived long, their life at times being all sunshine and at others all storm.  The man nearly seventy-five years old, was an industrious miner, and a number of years ago worked at the mines near this place, then at he mines at Athens, Ohio, from which place he went into the Army in 1861.  He was soon discharged and for most of the time since has lived at the place named, with his wife, Mary Bowen, who was found dead as stated. And

Terribly Mangled

David Bowen, the husband, was found near the house in an apparently semi-intoxicated condition.  Newell Kennon, Esq., Justice of the Peace, acting as Coroner in the absence of that officer, empanelled a Coroner’s jury and began an examination into the cause of the death.  Upon examining the body it was found that the

Skull Was Crushed, and One Arm and One Leg Was Broken

By some instrument evidently club shaped.  The Coroner’s jury after hearing the evidence, including a detailed statement from the physicians who had made a post mortem examination of the body, and from the neighbors and those who passed by the house during the afternoon, found that there had been a quarrel between the husband and wife, that they had both been drinking freely in celebrating the tenth anniversary of their

Wedding Day

The jury returned a verdict that the deceased had come to her death from blows from a club, and that circumstances indicated that her husband had killed her. The husband was at once arrested, but waived an examination before the magistrate, and is now in the jail of this county, waiting trial on the charge of

Murdering His Wife

Bowen gives contradictory statements as to the occurrence.  One of which is that she had fallen and had killed herself; that she had called on him to bring her water, he answered, and receiving no reply, found that she was dead.  He also saw that she fell out of the back door injuring herself as described, and that she stumbled to the place where she was found before falling.  He also says that she had gone out to hunt eggs, and that he knows no more about it.  The opinion is general that the death was produced by Bowen striking her with the

Post Of A Chair

Someone finding a bloody post near the house, which corresponds in shape with the marks produced by the blows on the body.

There is no doubt that the cause of the tragedy was whiskey.  The wife being as drunk as the husband, and both having been drunk for several days.  The whiskey was procured at Hendrysburg, from which place the husband had carried a few days before a gallon jug, and on the day before the killing the wife had procured another gallon.  Bowen so far seems unconcerned and indifferent as to the consequence of the dead.  It is said that he owns some property in the Southern part of the State, and that he may be able to give the required bail of two thousand dollars.

Obituary

Died, at her house near Campbells Station, Thursday, morning Oct. 30th 1873.  Miss Anna M. Sprout, Eldest daughter of Joseph A. and Elizabeth M. Sproat, in the sixteenth year of her age.

Few deaths have been so unexpected- Early in Sept’ she left the paternal roof, for a few months, bright, joyous and healthy, her hopes buoyant, her prospects cheering, and with a heart palpitating with joy to attend school at the Wheeling Seminary.  She had scarcely been gone seven weeks when a dispatch reached her parents that their dear child had taken the typhoid fever.  The father went on the first train to Wheeling, and when he arrived at the Seminary he discovered that she was dangerously ill-as soon as arrangements could be made she was brought home where she lingered one week, then passed away.

An unwelcome and an unseen visitor crossed the threshold of that cottage, he lurked invisible in the corners of that silent chamber; slowly and stealthily he approached the bedside of his victim, steadily and quietly he dealt the blow-and she was no more.  A shining convoy of angels wafted her spirit through the ethereal region to the bright world beyond.  Not many of her age possessed talents superior, nor had so meek and amiable disposition.  Her specialty was music in which she excelled-God in his all wise providence has taken her from this earth to dwell with him in heaven; away from sin and misery, from trials and troubles; to a world where all is peace and joy.   Her last words were: “I look to Jesus for comfort and to that source whence cometh all mine afflictions.”  “My hope is in Christ Jesus,” “I am a sinner but Gods grace is sufficient for me”-These and many others were expressions of this dear child of the heavenly world-Dear, dear Anna, thou art gone, thou wilt be missed from among us.   Our loss is thy gain. Thou hast passed the charmed boundary whence none return.  Thy footsteps have ceased on earth, but thou art treading the golden paved streets of the New Jerusalem.  Thy sweet voice will be listened to no more, but thou art singing, with that angelic host, the song of Moses and the Lamb, around the throne of God on high.  Ah! Thou can’st never come back to us but we can go to thee who has’t crossed the valley, the deep dark valley, even the valley and the shadow of death.

May God, whose superintending providence directs all events and is even so minute that the very hairs of the head are numbered, and that a creation so small as a sparrow is cared for, and bless, and comfort all the friends of the diseased in this sore bereavement.                          Committee.

Attendants,-Mr. M. D. Lewis and Miss Bettie M. Miller, John Dodson and Miss Olara Wheeler.  The rural homestead was crowded with the beauty and chivalry of Rocheport, who were out in their most brilliant attire to witness the crowning scene in the imposing drama of this handsome bridal troupe.  The three grand kingdoms of animal, vegetable and mineral, yielded their oblations at the rosy shrine of the bridal altar, while the magnificent table, adorned with the treasures and drapery of an orient clime, contributed in princely grandeur to the fondest wish of every honored guest.  May a fond wish enwreathe this launching bargue with a fervent prayer for a safe and happy anchorage beyond life’s silver tide.

The writer knew Jesse well.  He was a bright intelligent child, affectionate, gentle, loving ardently and loved by all.  It was a sad bereavement to the fond parents to part with their little loved one, but the angels loved Jesse too, and bore him on pinions bright to that fair land, where he shall dwell with them forever on that golden shore.

Thy spirit longed to be.      J. L. Mc.
