APOLOGY. We are called upon to apologize to our patrons for inserting an Advertisement in our paper for one LOUIS FEDER, and will promise never to do so again after the expiration of the present contract. When we first inserted his Advertisement, we thought him to be a fair and honest dealer, and as we do not disregard honor and work for money alone, we refuse ever after to ask our patrons to deal with a man whom we know to be dishonest, who is so low as to insult ladies, by meddling in an officious manner, who come into his store, and uses every means in his power to cheat, lie, deceive, and swindle honest people out of their hard earnings. We know that he cannot be trusted and so soon as his contract expires we will lift his advertisement out, for we do not propose to decieve the people in anyway when we can prevent it.

AN OLD FIRM. About thirty years ago, when the campfire and war-whoop was seen
and heard, there came to this locality an honorable and Christian gentleman who
engaged in the Boot & Shoe business. At that time but little of the work was
done as but few white settlers inhabited these regions, shortly after this
period however, the treaty with the Pottowattomies, with their removal and the
general settling of white people in our County followed, and but a short time
elapsed until this place was numbered with what was termed at that time a
"white settlement." From that to the present time our pioneer, Mr.
ELIHU LONG, remained here and has made himself known far and wide as the oldest
and most reliable Boot & Shoe dealer in this part of the country. And
justly, too, has he acquired this wide reputation. Two or three years since, the
old gentleman sold his stock to his son, H. C. LONG, late Captain in the army

that the Colonel's (K. G. SHRYOCK) name is used as the probable candidate for
the office of Secretary of State, at the election in the fall of 1868 .... it
has been our opinion, and is yet, that if the National Convention should be so
wise as to nominate the nation's noblest son, SCHUYLER COLFAX for the
Presidency, in that event Col Shryock would be the most popular and successful
candidate for Congress in this District ....

Railway, was postponed to the 27th, inst., on account of the French capitalists
who have the matter in hand, not arriving until the 13th. They will leave New
York immediately after their arrival, and come west to look after the interests
of the road. The Peru and Plymouth road, we are informed by Mr. RICE the
engineer of the road from this place to Plymouth, will, as he thinks, be
completed to this place by the lst of Jan. 168....

BRUTAL CRIME - AN OLD LADY FOUND MURDERED.
(Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune) Bourbon, Ind, Sept. 7.
One of the most horrible and brutal murders it has ever been my duty to record, has been committed one and a half miles east of here, on the line of the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne & Chicago Railroad. The name of the murdered woman is BARBARA CATHARINE DALE, and her age is fifty-six years. She came from Germany to this country seven years ago with her only son, an industrious lad of about twenty years of age, who supported himself and his mother in a comfortable manner, in the employ of the railwoad company as a day laborer. The two owned a small piece of land on which they had built a small log cabin ... the house stands something over fifty feet from the railroad track... Suspicion strongly points to a German, named GEORGE R. SCIENTLE, as being connected with the murder, and his arrest has just been effected.
CHANGE. Mr. WM. DOWNEY has purchased the stock of groceries in WALLACE'S BLOCK, formerly owned by JOliN SHORE. . . Mr. Downey is a young man worthy of the people's patronage.

RAILROAD MEETING AT FULTON. The anti-railroad men of Liberty and Wayne Townships met at Fulton, on Monday the 27th inst., at a railroad meeting called for the purpose of getting an expression of the people in that vicinity. They expressed themselves against extending the donation of the county on the grounds (as stated by their spokesman, Mr. SELLARS) "that railroads were a curse to the laboring community," that they deprived the laborer of the only means he had of support, that they destroyed the cattle of the farmer immediately along the line of the road, and the farmers who raised horses to sell had their market cut off, or there would be neither work for horses or teamsters.
MORE BURGLARY. Again we are compelled to give publicity to another of those bold "operations." On last Thursday night, the Boot and Shoe Store of Capt. LONG, was entered by burglars, and over three hundred dollars worth of boots, shoes and leather stolen. No clues to the robbers has yet been found....
DIED. On Tuesday the 29th day of October 1867, of typhoid fever, SAMUEL
SHELTON, of this place.
Death comes among us once again, and carries away one of our best citizens. A few weeks ago the community mourned the loss of its most honored and worthy citizen, BRICE SHEPHERD. Mr. Shepherd was one of our influential, patriotic and devoted men: a kind husband, and a good father. On Tuesday last we were again called to mourn the loss of Samuel Shelton. Mr. Shelton was well known to many of the citizens of this county; he was a man of strict integrity; beloved by all who knew him and kind alike to family, neighbors and friends. He leaves a large family, many relatives, and numerous friends to mourn his loss.

ROCHESTER CHRONICLE - Thursday, November 7, 1867
COMMUNICATION. The following communication was handed us by a distant
relative of Ta-La-La-Bul-Beaunna, who is related to old Godfrey, Chief of the
Miamies, and is now friendly to the Pottawattomics. We understand from him that
Tec-Choc-Koos-Nye, is preparing a book, entitled, The Wonderful Chief; or the
Reminiscences of Lake Manitau. - Ed.
Ed. Chronicle: My Dear Sir: Some things ought to be known as well as others, I therefore propose to enlighten not only those who now and for more than twenty years, have lived in our midst, but those who live abroad and have no means of knowing where we are, or how we are getting along except through our public journals.
It is not generally known that Lake Manitau is just one mile from the county seat of Fulton county, that it is a body of water covering an area of land three miles in length, and from a mile and a half to two and a half in width. In its middle is two Islands, one embracing twenty-five or thirty acres of land, well timbered, and as fertile as any in the county, and upon which pea and grape vines grow luxuriantly. The other island is not so extensive, but more beautiful, as it is covered with a young growth of timber. It is now occupied by a Mr. NYE, an immediate decendant of old Aubbeenaubbee, chief of one of the clans of Pottawattomies that inhabited this county twenty-five or thirty years ago, and who was killed by his son under circumstances very marvelous to relate, the facts of which can be better told by his relative Tec-Choc-Koos-Nye, now occupying an island in said lake. He has at a great expense purchased a small steamboat that he has named Chief Aubbeenaubbee, in honor of his ancestor.
Tec-Choc-Koos-Nye is familiar with the traditions of the Pottawattomie Indians in relation to lake Manitau, and has frequently seen the monster that is said to inhabit it. If the reader has any doubts of Lake Manitau being the retreat of a monster he is referred to the tradition of the Algonquins, as published in the Whig Review, of 1838 or 9, from which we learn that the monster now inhabiting said lake was traced by his trail from the Rocky Mountains to the lake now traversed in pleasure excursions by Tec-Choc-Koos-Nye, the lineal decendant of the old Chief Aubbeenaubbee.
No Indian was known to venture upon this lake for a hundred years prior to the settlement of this country by the whites, on account of the fear he entertained of "Monibozo," or the Devil, that inhabited it. Hence, when the whites (who are less fearful of the Devil, which in Indian phrase is Manitau,) settled here the lake was literally filled with fish, and proof can now be adduced to show that in 1858 more than Seven Thousand pounds of fish was caught in a single day; one man alone speared in one night Twenty-five Hundred pounds of fish.
Tec-Choc-Kocs-Nye, the descendant of old Chief Aubbeenaubbee, has built a house on one of the Islands of this lake, and in addition to his steamboat keeps on hand a great variety of small crafts for the accommodation of fishing parties. In the summer time he keeps Ice Cream, and in the fall and winter prepares fish and game of all kinds in a way pleasant to the taste of hungry sportsmen. In fact the tradition connected with said lake are most wonderful, and for a place of resort for pleasure cannot be surpassed in the State.

Mr. Stock is doing good work for his customers, and is sending off great quantities of No. 1 brands of flour.

Mr. Stock has also between 200 and 300 head of fat hogs in his pens near the mill, which will average about 300 lbs each.

We are informed that Mr. DAVID MOW came very near being drowned on last Monday while helping to remove lodged ice from the bridge across the Tippecanoe river near our town.
The BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS hold a special session this week in reference to the late ROBBERY of the safe of the COUNTY TREASURY, and to take the preliminary steps for collecting the amount of money lost from the men who sold the safe, warranting it fire and burglar proof...
The TIPPECANOE RIVER has been very high and is still "out of all bounds." Considerable damage has been done along its course we understand in the way of carrying off fences, lumber, bridges, &c. It is reported that a portion of the LEITER BRIDGE below here has been swept away, and the bridge north of town on the MICHIGAN ROAD is gone. We trust the citizens will put in a good Ferry boat here immediately, until the bridge can be replaced.
A correspondent in last week's [Logansport, Ind.] Pharos says that the first
house, except Indian trading houses, ever built in Cass County, is a large log
house on the south bank of the Wabash river opposite the point of land on which
the city of Logansport now stands, that it is "in a pretty good state of
preservation," and that it was built in the spring of 1827 forty years ago
by our old venerable townsman, uncle ALEXANDER CHAMBERLAIN. We have no doubt the
statement is correct, as the writer (if we are not mistaken) has himself
domiciled near by the "neglected relic," many years, and knows whereof
he writes. Have it preserved, "Charlie" by all means through the
Council or Commissioners, and we will cling to the old Pioneer builder as long
as possible. He is still spry and cheerful, especially when conversing about
those "olden times."

DIED. On the 11th inst., at his residence four miles south of Rochester, Hon.
HUGH MILLER, in the sixty-first year of his age.
Judge Miller settled in Fulton County over thirty years ago and has resided here since. He was widely known throughout the State, having served several terms in the Legislature, and as a delegate in the Convention that formed the present Constitution of the State of Indiana. He was Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in this district, the first four years after the organization of that Court.
A devoted friend to education, he was for several years prior to his affliction the Examiner and patron of the Schools in this county.
As a citizen, a friend or neighbor, he was firm constant and kind, ever steeled against the poisoned fangs of jealousy and base slander. In politics he was determined, earnest, and consistent, always a Democrat from principle.
Last fall he was prostrated by a fatal cancer on the neck below the ear, which was afterwards supposed to have been removed by Dr. SPRINGER, of Niles, Mich., carrying away with it the lower part of the ear. The Doctor ever since thought, and the citizens hoped the Judge was getting well, but last Sunday night he experienced a severe chill, followed by congestion of the Stomach, which terminated in his death about one oclock, P.M., the next day. His remains were brought to this place for interment on the 12th at two oclock P.M. and followed to the cemetery by a large number of citizens and relatives. The bereaved wife and children have lost a kind and affectionate Husband and Father, the poor man a friend indeed, and Fulton County one of her oldest and best citizens. In the hearts and interests of our people, there is none left to supply the unselfish counsel, sacrifices, and friendship of "Judge Miller." ...

On Monday last, JACOB PALMER, who was the owner of a mill on Eel river, two miles west of Mexico, in this county, went into the lower part of his mill amongst the machinery, whilst it was running, to drive in a loosened wedge. He called to a hand above for an axe which was handed to him. In a few moments afterwards it was observed by the workmen that something had interfered with the machinery, and that the speed of the mill was checked. Upon looking for the cause, Mr. Palmer was found a corpse, caught in the machinery and terribly mangled. The deceased was a Marylander, about fifty years of age. He had immigrated to Indiana about a year ago, and purchased the mill last fall of Mr. DUKES. He was a very worthy and estimable citizen, highly esteemed by all who knew him. - PERU SENTINEL.

MASONIC DEDICATION. A member of the Masonic Fraternity has kindly furnished
us with the following account of the dedication of the Masonic Hall in Gilead,
Miami County, on Friday last:
"After a most delightful drive of some thirteen miles, through a beautiful country, on the morn of the 14th, we found ourselves in the suburbs of the village of Gilead, and driving to the only hotel the place affords, we discovered "mine host" and old friend, E. G. BARNES, smiling through the perspiration on his genial face, and ready to give us such welcome as no other man knows how to bestow upon fellow man. Taking a good draught of "Adam's Ale" to wash down the dust in our throats, we were ready for business, but it wanted an hour of the time set for the commencement of the ceremonies, and having nothing else of importance to attend, we took a stroll through the village. Gilead, we should judge, contains about three hundred inhabitants, and is bright looking place for an inland town remote from any public thoroughfare, situated in Perry township, Miami County, and contains one or two groceries, blacksmith shop, Cabinet Shop, a church and School House. Looking at our watch, we found it to be near the hour of "business," we retraced our steps to the "GILEAD HOUSE," in time to take our place among the procession to march to the grove south of town, where preparations had been made for part of the ceremonies to take place, on reaching the grove, we seated ourselves and the ceremonies were opened by singing from the choir, composed of Ladies and gentlemen from this place, accompanied by a fine melodeon which gave a beautiful effect to the truly splendid music. Bro. A. J. HOLMES, who had been appointed Deputy Grand Master for the occasion made a few remarks, followed by a prayer from Rev. J. S. DONALDSON Pastor of the M.E. Church in this place. The oration came next, delivered by Mr. D---, and when about one half through the discourse, a severe shower of rain broke upon us, which necessarily caused an adjournment to some other cover than the broad "canopy of Heaven," therefore we adjourned to the School House, -- the largest public room in the place-- when the ceremonies were completed by installing the officers of the Lodge, T. M. McKIM being installed as Master, after which we adjourned to partake of a splendid dinner furnished by the proprietor of the Hotel, to which we all done ample justice. We returned home in the evening, and thought the words were truly spoken by the Orator in his eloquent address, that it was an "occasion long to be remembered by all."

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT. One week from last Sunday as Mr. DAVID CARR of this place was returning home from a visit, his team became frightened at two dogs fighting. Mr. Carr having jumped from the wagon previous to the team getting frightened to part the dogs, one of which belonged to him, was unable to reach the horses in time to prevent them from running-- there being only his wife and children in the wagon. They ran from Cornelius Bros, and Fromm's new buildings to the M.E. Church, where in turning the corner so suddenly the wagon was turned over, throwing all out upon the hard ground, severely injuring Mrs. CARR and eldest son. Mrs. Carr had a shoulder and ankle dislocated, and the child was severely injured in the leg-- tearing off great pieces of flesh. Messrs GOULD, ROBBINS and HILL dressed their wounds. They are now under the care of ROBBINS and HARTER, Mrs. Carr is doing well but the child's life is doubtful.

to see an additional brief notice of Mrs. A. F. SMITH, whose death at
Minneapolis, on the 29th ult., and interment here on the 4th inst., were
mentioned in your last issue. She was born in Terre Haute, in 1819 A.D., moved
with her father's family to Logansport, at the age of seven years, and to this
town a few years later. She was united in marriage to Mr. A. F. SMITH thirty-one
years ago, she being then eighteen years of age, and her husband nineteen. The
wedding was at the house still known in this town as the CHAMBERLAIN HOUSE. The
inhabitants of the town were the wedding guests, about fifty in number. Her
residence continued here until in November 1865, when the family moved to
Minnesota. She was thus one of those who have seen nearly the whole growth of
Rochester to its present size.

THE RAILROAD. Information from the "front" is to the effect that work upon the railroad is being prosecuted with vigor.

THE MAILS. Rochester is most wretchedly supplied with means of communication with the outer world, and Uncle Sam should be petitioned to do a better part for us. The stage leaves Plymouth and Logansport every alternate morning at an hour when most of us are eating breakfast, and before the morning trains arrive. The consequence is that we get the city papers twenty-four hours after the news has become stale to the rest of the world, and frequently they fail to come at all. Our town is of sufficient importance to require a daily mail from both before-mentioned points...

ACCIDENTS. The Fourth of July... JOHN LIZY, a young German, who resides in
Union Township, was seriously hurt while on his way to Rochester to spend the
Fourth. He was in company with some friends, and the party stopped at the
residence of Mr. JAMES MOORE to get a drink of water. Young Lizy did not
dismount, but held the horses of two of his companions, when his own animal
became frightened. Probably he tried to retain the bridles of his friends'
steeds, and was thus dragged out of his saddle. One of his feet caught in the
stirrup, and the head of the unfortunate young man was dashed with great
violence against the fence or a stump, fracturing his skull and otherwise
mangling and bruising his person. The accident occurred about nine oclock a.m.,
and until late in the afternoon his death was hourly expected. It is now
thought, however, that he will get well.
Miss ELLA KIRTLAND, daughter of the Squire, postponed her part of the celebration until the 7th, when she stepped on a hot stove lid, leaving her track in burning flesh, Prompt care and attention has already placed the little sufferer beyond the fear of dangerous consequences.

Saturday last Peck and Necher met for the first time since the above affray. A bloody fight ensued, in which the tide of battle was all in favor of Peck.

CHILDREN DROWNED. -Last Saturday a little child, daughter of Mr. GEORGE
WAGNER, was drowned in the mill race near this place. The family live at the
head of the race, and the back gate opens upon the bank. The gate is usually
kept shut, but by some means was left open that fatal afternoon, and, it is
supposed, the little girl got started down the declivity and could not stop
before reaching the water. Its absence was not noted for half an hour, when
search was instituted by the family. When the body was found it was perhaps too
late to hope for resuscitation, and three-quarters of an hour more elapsed
before medical aid arrived.

HORRIFYING ACCIDENT. We learn that a young man named SERGEANT, a resident of Union Township, a few days since, had one of his legs so crushed and mangled in a threshing machine that amputation became necessary.
MURDEROUS ASSAULT. Saturday was a day of excitement in Rochester... The violator of the peace was a notorious individual named SELVEY, and this is not his first offense. Selvey was formerly a performer in a circus, is a very powerful man, and when in liquor is a perfect demon. He resides near Bloomingsburgh, coming to the county seat only occasionally... Saturday... he came to town, became infuriated with drink ... He first got hold of an Irishman, probably as drunk as himself, on whom he inflicted indignities that are too disgusting for recital. Another man was also subjected to similar outrage ... he inflicted a murderous blow with a pitchfork upon Mr. WILLIAM DUDGEON, a countryman who was quietly pursuing his way along the sidewalk. It was thought at first that Mr. Dudgeon's injuries were greater than they proved to be. (after resisting arrest, he was arrested and taken before a Justice, but was permitted to search for bail, and left) ...
PUBLIC SALE. On the farm of SAMUEL SHELTON, deceased, three and a half miles southeast of Rochester on the Peru road... personal property (listed) ... ANDREW HATTERY, August Sth 1868.

Mr. D. is on very bad terms with his neighbors, but whether any of them are suspected of the diabolical deed we do not know... .
FATAL ACCIDENT. Mr. LEE SARGENT, a young man living near Bruce's Lake, in Fulton County, was caught in a threshing machine on Monday morning last, and had his leg so terribly mangled that he died the same evening. He leaves a wife and child. -- LOGANSPORT JOURNAL, 8th.

A CHALLENGE. (letter to editor concerning article appearing in The standard,
which claimed that) thirty-seven old wide awake lamps were carried by a
procession which they called the "Fighting Boys in Blue," many of
which fightists, however, had never seen a day's service in the army.
Below we hand you a list of the persons who made up the procession ... and we defy the Standard to point to one man who was in the ranks who has not an honorable discharge from the service: W. H. WILLIARD, H. S. FOOTE, John MYERS, Aaron GUNCKLE, J. R. STALLARD, Williard GOULD, Joseph CARR, Vernon GOULD, Christian NEWHOUSE, Ed HAWKINS, Chas. COLWELL, D. M. HEATON, George GROVE, Wm.

having stone fronts, are being erected on Main street, and are to be used for
business purposes. The one nearest completion is on the corner north of the
public square and is owned by JESSE SHIELDS, Esq. The brick used in its
construction was made in this place ... The other brick building is located
nearly opposite and west of the Court House, and is owned by Mr. G. M.
SERGEANT... We hope another year will witness entire brick blocks taking the
place of the inferior wooden buildings that now occupy some of the best business
sites in town.
Mr. LOU. FEDER has purchased several lots on South and Jefferson streets, and has commenced the erection of a substantial private residence. We understand he contemplates putting up a number of small dwelling houses to rent...
BAND WAGON. The most significant feature in the procession tomorrow will be the new wagon of the Rochester Silver Band... It is a real work of art, and the painter, Mr. A. W. McFALL, may justly feel proud of his achievement ...

ROCHESTER A RAILROAD TOWN... Last Saturday began an era in the history of
Rochester. The track of theCINCINNATI, LOUISVILLE & CHICAGO RAILROAD that
day crossed the corporation line from the north, at an early hour, and before
the sun disappeared in the west the rails had been laid beyond the southern
limits of the town. It was and is intended to be a continuation of the PERU
& INDIANAPOLIS RAILROAD from Peru to Laporte, Ind., where connections will
be made with trains running on the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana
Railroad. In the year 1855-6 the portion of the road between Laporte and
Plymouth was completed... The laying of the track through Rochester was
witnessed by large crowds of both sexes... Monday a force was engaged laying a
side-track near where the station is to be located. The depot will be almost
east of the Court House, on the Akron road. A shaft has been already sunk for a
tank, and, we presume, work will soon commence on the depot building...

THE RAILROAD ... It appears that the franchise for the construction of a

present owners are Chas. COURTER, President; Geo. W. RODGERS, Roscius KENNEDY,
Guernsey KENNEDY, Jas. HERRICK and J. R. HERRICK. These gentlemen represent a
capital of $2,500,000 .... The track, when finished will be inferior to none in
this country. The iron is of English manufacture... From 2,600 to 2,800 ties are
required to the mile. The cost of constructing the road has been about $15,000
per mile... Work on the road south of Rochester is being pushed forward as
rapidly as the weather permits. The track has already been laid three miles out
of Rochester, and from Peru to Eel River. All but one contract for grading is
completed, and that has been given to Charley FRANK, and is, therefore, as good
No regular trains will be placed on the road before next Monday, when two mixed trains will arrive from and depart towards the North.

THE DEAR SOLDIER... The Republican majority in the Counties of Fulton and
Kosciusko is about four hundred; a nomination is considered by them as
equivalent to an election. There were four candidates before the convention
which met here on Saturday last, to nominate a Joint Representative from these
two Counties. One of them - EDWARD CALKINS - had served in the army with
distinction for thirty-eight-months, had then returned home and been a zealous
supporter of the cause of "God and humanity" ever since. Another, M.
L. ESSICK, had served in the army and after his return, had for three years
published the Republican paper in this County, at a dead loss to himself of
several hundred dollars per year. Both of them were members of the G.A.R., one
of them the commanding officer of that organization. Of course everybody
expected one or the other of the two soldiers would be nominated. They were
opposed by a man who had already had the office-- who had never shouldered a
musket or carried a knapsack in his life; -- who was classically described by
one of his competitors as "a d ---- d stay at home Dung hill patriot,"
and who was described by another one of his competitors as being so ignorant,
that he could not spell correctly one half of the words in the following phrase:
"An act entitled an act to incorporate the town of Rochester." Backed
by the G.A.R., relying upon the love of their party for the DEAR BRAVE soldier,
Calkins and Essick went into Convention confident of success. But, lo, and
behold! when the vote was taken, DAVIDSON, the "stay at home," was
nominated on the first Ballot ...
The two soldier candidates were slaughtered in the house of their friends...
Do not the soldiers of Fulton County remember that JAMES BEEBER, a soldier, and HORACE LONG, a soldier, were nominated when there was not a ghost of a chance for their election; and that the Republican convention on Saturday last nominated JACOB WRIGHT, a soldier, for Sheriff, where there is 228 majority against him. And the same Convention snubbed two soldiers and nominated a "Stay at home" for Representative, when they knew there was a Republican majority in his favor of over 400 votes. We say to the soldiers; remember these things when you go to the polls...

MR. EDITOR: Your last week's issue contained an article, headed "To the
public," which was written for my special benefit, and to which I wish to
In March last I purchased of A. D. HOPPE a lot of old jewelry and worthless traps, for which he received almost twice their worth. At the time of sale I was informed by Mr. Hoppe that he intended embarking in the grocery and provision business, and acting upon this statement I agreed to make good all warrants coming under the rules of the trade, which agreement I have carried out in good faith.
I cannot say as much for Mr. Hoppe. On the contrary he has started in business again, and seeks by the manner of his advertisement to which this refers, to reinstate himself in the good will of his former customers, by offering to complete his contracts with them by making good his warrants. For the manifestation of such generous impulses he will please accept my thanks. I shall place no obstacle in the way of A. D., and all parties holding his warrants are requested to test his generous offer by asking for repairs at his new shop.
Those holding no warrants, and persons holding warrants that are considered worthless (and I presume the larger portion are so held) will find me at home in Hoppe's old stand, ready to promptly attend to all business entrusted to my care. F. M. ASHTON.
We learn from Dr. W. T. CLELAND that a "violent wind and rain storm passed over Pleasant Grove, Fulton County, and surrounding vicinity, last Thursday at about 11 oclock A.M., prostrating fences, fruit trees and unroofing the German Reformed Church in our town. The track of the storm was from west to east and about six miles wide." LOGANSPORT PHAROS.

ROCHESTER STANDARD - Thursday, July 2, 1868
OUR CANDIDATE FOR JOINT REPRESENTATIVE. The Joint Convention which met in
Sevastopol on Saturday, unanimously nominated WILLIAM STURGEON, of Fulton
County, for the office of Joint Representative ... Mr. Sturgeon is an old
citizen of our County, having emigrated from Ohio and settled in Richland
Township, in 1843.
As soon as he became eligible, he was elected Assessor and Trustee of that Township, and was selected as President of the Board of Trustees, which at that time consisted of three members. In 1854 he ran for the office of County Clerk on the Democratic ticket. His competitor was Mr. L. M. BOZARTH, who had held the office for fourteen years-- who had until that time, been a Democrat and very popular with his party; and who had given entire satisfaction by the faithfulness with which lie had performed the duties of his office during the period of three terms. In this race Mr. Sturgeon was beaten by only thirty-one votes. In 1862 he was nominated by the Democracy, for the office of County Treasurer, and was elected by a majority of about two hundred votes. In 1864 he was renominated and reelected to the same office by a very handsome majority. The promptness and fidelity with which he performed the duties of his office secured the esteem and good will of the citizens of our County, irrespective of party.
During his long residence among us, Mr. Sturgeon has been identified with every enterprise which looked toward the interest of the County and town in which he lived. It is to his untiring energy and perseverance that we are mainly indebted for our present prospect of a speedy completion of a Railroad through our County. To this enterprise lie has devoted his time, labor and money to a greater extent, perhaps, than any other citizen of the County.
Mr. Sturgeon has always been noted for liberality and public spirit. Any project that would tend to promote the prosperity of the people was sure to meet with a hearty support and liberal pecuniary assistance from him. An instance of his liberality is shown in the fact, that during the way he made a handsome donation to each Township in the County, in order to aid them in procuring volunteers, and thus avoid the impending draft...

A GOOD THING. At the last session of the County Commissioner's Court, it was ordered that the Court House be repainted, with two coats of white paint upon all the wood work, inside and out, and the shutters to be painted green. it is a right move in a right direction, as the Court House is sadly in need of it. Mr. SIDNEY MOON, we believe has the contract for the painting of it and is already at work. It would be another great improvement if the brick work be painted red and then penciled... The next thing in the way of improvement should be a new fence around the building, as the one there is about "gone up and done for."

* * * RAILROAD. The BRIDGE across Tippecanoe River is completed, and the Cars crossed the River last Tuesday. We are told by those who know, that the cars will be running to Rochester, about the lsth. Good. ***
THE ROCHESTER RAILROAD. The workmen are busily engaged laying the ties and rails on this road. They have already crossed the prairie north of the city. About two miles of the road is completed from Peru north, and an engine is running over it carrying the material for the work. - PERU SENTINEL.
PICKLES. LEOPOLD LASER wishes to inform the public in general that he will pay the highest market price in cash, at his Cigar and Tobacco Store, for Cucumber Pickles. All that have pickles to sell give him a call. Store, one door South of C. Chamberlain's Eating Saloon.
FIRE. On the 3d inst., the dwelling of Esq. WARDLOW, of Aubbeenaubbee Township, caught fire and was entirely consumed. The books and papers, both private and public, with all their household goods were destroyed, and also a small amount of money. How it caught fire is not known, as the family wasaway from home at the time; probably from the stove as there was fire left in it. From the dwelling the granary caught fire, and nothing was saved from the two buildings, excepting a few articles of bed clothing which a neighbor girl succeeded in getting out of the window, the door being locked at the time. A small amount of wheat was gathered up after the fire subsided. It is a terrible loss to Esq. Wardlow, as he had no insurance. Every person that owns a farm, house and lot, or any thing that way, should by all means have them insured.
DIED. -On the morning of October 31st, 1868, at the residence of E. CALKINS,

BOURBON BAND. On late Thursday, the 12tli, the Bourbon Brass Band paid our town a visit, and also gave us some very fine music ... They were the guests of the Rochester Silver and Brass Bands. Come again boys.
DEPOT. The R.R. DEPOT is to be built on the south side of the Akron Road. That is, in our mind, a much better place than across the creek, as first proposed. in fact that is the proper place for it.
RAIL ROAD. The track-laying on the R.R. was completed to Rochester last
Saturday at about 10 oclock A.M., and on Monday, the first train came in from
Plymouth, loaded with freight. When the track was completed to town a number of
our citizens, on Saturday afternoon, sent two or three lager of Beer and some
eatables over to the Road, and gave the hands a treat. Those track layers, were
deserving of it, for they worked manfully to get the track laid to Rochester, as
soon as possible. Everybody in town were, and are excited over the Road, and
"Rochester has got a Railroad," or "Rochester Is a Railroad
Town," "Have you been over to the Railroad," is heard on every
corner. Nearly everybody in town visited the Road on Saturday, and not a few on
Sunday. Go there when you would, you would see hundreds of people, walking up
and down the track, every one elated over the Railroad. Rochester is now
connected with the outer world, and we can now get the news before it is old and
stale, as heretofore, we can also go to Plymouth, without jolting a fellow to
Regular passenger trains will commence to run about next Monday.
MARRIED. November 17th, 1868, by the Rev. A. V. HOUSE, at the residence of the bride's mother, Mr. ALPHEUS DUNLAP and Miss LOTTIE McDONALD, all of Rochester.

DAVIS, whose term expired, retiring, knowing as does everybody, that he did his work as Sheriff, nobly and honorably. Partial to none, yet kind though firm in his official duties to all. he retires with the best wishes of the whole community for his future welfare, hoping that prosperity and success may attend him, in all of his undertakings, as a private citizen...
GOOD WALKS. We agree with the Spy of last week, concerning the building of a plank walk from Main Street to the Depot; for if not done now in the spring and fall of the year, it will be dreadful bad for pedestrians. This walk could be made without a very great expense, by planking as is done on Main Street. Let it be built at the expense of the Corporation, or any other way, so that it is built.
FOUND DEAD. Uncle BILLY YOUNG was found dead in his bed, at J. M. RANNELLS', last Monday morning. The evening before, he eat a hearty supper and went to bed in as good health as usual, he died sometime during the night. A man sleeping with him at the time, knew nothing of it until next morning. The cause of his death is not positively known, but is supposed to have been palpitation of the heart, to which he has for some time been subject. He was 72 years of age.
REMOVED. Mr. JESSE SHIELDS has removed into his new brick building. He has now the finest Store Room in town ...
Mr. J. M. ROBINSON, formerly of the firm of J. M. & P. H. ROBINSON, Druggists of this place, intends to go into the lumber trade. He proposes to buy and ship all kinds of lumber, and Walnut in particular, for which he is prepared to pay the market price at all times.
Doctor TURNER, of N. Y. will visit Rochester, Ind. November 26th, 1868, where he will remain for a short time. The Doctor comes more especially to cure all those afflicted with that most dreaded disease Cancer ... Call him at the Hotel in Rochester, Nov. 26th, 1868. H. J. TURNER, M.D.

EXCURSION. On Monday afternoon last, an Excursion train on the C. C. & L. R.R. came in from Laporte with about two hundred persons on board. It did not remain here more than two hours, then returned again. When do the Rochester and vicinity folks have an Excursion? Some prefer to wait until the road is finished to Peru. Any time will suit us.
THE FIRST. The first passenger coach on our Railroad, made its appearance in our town, last Sunday afternoon, and from the best of our knowledge, from two to three hundred persons were at the R.R. to welcome its arrival.
COMPLIMENTARY. We learn that Major ED. HENDERSON has bought out the well
known establishment of Westerfield & Menefee, Druggists, at Anderson, Ind.
The Major is widely and favorably known here, having resided in this community
for the last three or four years, and has established for himself a reputation
for integrity, uprightness, and honor...

BOYS. After one or two of the boys of this town get killed, or some of their limbs broken, then the others will be more careful how they fool around the cars, at the Railroad. We see them climbing upon and off the cars while the train is in motion, dozens of them at a time, and it looks to us that there ought to be a stop put to it; some of them will get killed yet, sure ...

They are having them delivered now, so that they will be ready for the masons early in the spring. The building is to be three stories high, the third story is to be built and occupied by the Masonic Fraternity of this place. Success to them, as it will be an honor to the town. It will be erected on the corner just south of Lyon & Kendrick's Dry Goods Store.
BUSINESS. Nearly every day last week, from two to three droves of hogs passed through town to the depot, to be shipped to the Eastern markets. Quite a large number of slaughtered hogs were also shipped by D. M. RANNELLS and others. That comes from having a Railroad. We see every day or so car loads of Walnut lumber leaving the depot for some Eastern market. The principal part of it is being shipped by COWGILL & BARRATT, who, it is said, had, before the Railroad was completed to this place, more Walnut lumber in this county than any other two men in the State.
