He purchased goods there, and had them packed ready to ship to Warsaw. On the 26th, desiring to examine a certain lathe in Allegheny, he started to go to that city, when he met a young machinist, who persuaded him to go a mile further to see a lathe of the same kind. Nothing has since been heard from him. His baggage is still at the St. Charles. His wife and child are at Warsaw, and she is extremely anxious about him.

hands-- in Fulton county as well as this. The relative advantages to Fulton
county of a road from Rochester to Logansport, Plymouth or Peru, we will not

advantages would bring all interested to a decision in favor of this point over
every other, should any doubt exist upon the subject.
Our object now is however, not to discuss, but to propose to our Rochester neighbors a joint meeting at a point mid way between the towns-- say at Wm. CONNER'S to consider the subject, and if thought expedient take the necessary steps to commence the work.

TO OUR PATRONS.... The past year has been an uncommon hard one on all classes, and on none more so than printers.... Our paper makers, Messrs. ALDRICH, BALDWIN & CO., of Logansport, had kindly agreed to let us have paper on our promise, in order to encourage and assist us-- a new beginner. Well, we could not meet our engagement, as above stated, and they have kindly agreed to wait on us a short time for what we owe them....

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, September 17, 1859
A RAILROAD. The project of a Railroad instead of a Plank road, from this place to Peru, seems to meet the hearty approbation of all interested. We are confident it will cost no more to grade and furnish ties for a railroad, than to grade and plank the same distance.-- What will you do for us, Peru?
The first indictment under the new liquor law was tried before Squire TRUSLOW, on Friday- - Chas. BAKER was found guilty of selling the ardent in a style not approved of by said law, for which he was mulct in the sum of five dollars. On motion of his attorney, N. G. SHAFFER, Esq., he was granted a new trial.

A full attendance is expected. K. G. SHRYOCK, Secretary of the Company.
The Common Pleas Court (Logansport) has been in session there for several
days. The journal says the proceedings were devoid of interest, until Tuesday,
when the revised code was put in practice. An attorney named DYKEMAN and the
judge failed to agree upon the manner of conducting a case. The Judge intimated
or said that the attorney "pettifogged," whereupon the attorney filed
a "reply" to the effect that the Judge was a liar. The Judge fined Mr.
Dykeman $1,000, and immediately adjourned the Court, left the bench and
proceeded to choke the attorney....
There seems to be a mania for fighting among the civil functionaries along the Wabash. Our worthy Prosecutor, MINOR, and Constable CHINN had a round at fisticuff the other day-but, we are happy to add, no serious damage was done to either party.
The PLANK ROAD Meeting at CONNERIS yesterday, adjourned to meet in the latter

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, October 1, 1859
Large delegations from Rochester, Peru and intermediate points met at
CONNERIS on Friday, Sept. 25th., pursuant to previous notice, to enter into some
arrangement to construct a PLANK or RAILROAD from Rochester to Peru. The meeting
was large, and a great deal of interest manifested... On motion of J. W. TYNER,
Esq., of Peru, D. R. PERSHING, Esq., of Rochester, was called to the chair. On
motion, J. W. TYNER, Esq., of Peru, and W. W. SHULER, Esq., of Rochester, were
J. B. FULWILER, Esq., of Peru, offered the following resolution: Resolved, That it is expedient to construct a Plank road from Mexico to Rochester. K. G. SHRYOCK, Esq., of Rochester, offered the following as an amendment: Resolved, That it is expedient to construct a Railroad from Peru to Rochester.
Mr. FULWILER spoke at length in favor of a Plank Road as the only road that could at present be constructed, and endeavored to show that a Railroad could not be built from Peru to Rochester, except at an enormous expense, which, he urged, could not possibly be raised at the present time.
Messrs. SHRYOCK, PERSHING and SMITH expressed their views, and stated that Fulton county would only be satisfied by giving them a Railroad; and that a Railroad they must have-- and if not built from Peru, they would endeavor to get one from Plymouth.
Mr. GRAHAM, of Peru, moved to lay the amendment and resolution on the table-- Agreed to.
On motion of Mr. FULWILER, a Committee of Conference was appointed, consisting of J. A. GRAHAM, W. SMITH and FULWILER, of Peru, and K. G. SHRYOCK, John ELAM and A. F. SMITH, of Rochester.
On motion of Mr. FULWILER, a Committee of five was appointed to draft articles of Association for either a Plank or Railroad Company, as may be agreed upon, to be submitted at the next meeting- - consisting of Messrs. CONNER, FULWILER and BEARS, of Miami, and LAWHEAD and SHULER, of Fulton.
On motion, the meeting adjourned to meet at the same place on Saturday, October 30th, 1859. D. R. PERSHING, Pres't; J. W. TYNER, W. W. SHULER, Secys.
COUNTY FAIR. On the 14th and 15th of October will be held the third annual Fair of the FULTON COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY ....
A number of our business men visited Fulton last Saturday, expecting to meet a delegation from Logansport, ready to make some arrangement in regard to a Plank Road. No delegation came, and nothing was done. This lack of interest on the part of the business community of Cass county will be sure to tell against them.
Thomas POWELL advertises his readiness to furnish gravestones, tablets, monuments, etc., etc., in a superior style of finish, and at low rates. Hugh BOWMAN is his agent in Fulton County.
Robt. WALLACE gives notice that there will be a Cotillion Party at his Hall on Friday evening, the 14th of October. A large gathering of the devotees of Terpsichore is anticipated.

CHANGE. The new store room of I. W. HOLEMAN is completed. It is one of the
neatest finished business houses in the place, and adds much to the appearance
of our town. Mr. H. has been east during the past two weeks laying in a stock of
goods to fill it. He will let the citizens of Fulton know when they arrive.
The firm of STRADLEY & DAWSON has dissolved. Mr. Dawson, we believe, continuing business at the old stand.
We understand that Mr. Stradley intends fitting up the room formerly occupied by Mr. Holeman, for the dry goods trade. The carpenters are already at work.
While in Peru the other day, we visited the Sentinel office and found our old preceptor Charley RICHARDS, hard at work, as usual, looking none the worse for wear-- we did notice a few gray hairs-- although he has foremanized in the Sentinel office for twelve years. We had not seen Charley for nearly four years, and it did us good to shake his honest hand. May Time ever touch you gently, Charley.
FOUND. About three months since, my children, while on their way to school, found a Pocket Book, containing two dollars and fifty-five cents .... FRANCIS F. FREIDGEN, Sept. 20, 1859.

Helen Mar [STAILEY], daughter of John H. and Sarah STAILEY.
Her funeral will take place tomorrow, Sunday, morning at 11 oclock.
One year ago the youth of Rochester were called to mourn the untimely loss of one of their beloved and cherished companions by the same disease; and now another loved one has been summoned fyom our midst.
The gentle and estimable Ella STAILEY is dead!
Though it was thought, from the nature of the disease that her frail form could not long bear up under it, the announcement will be received with sincere tears and regret by her many friends and acquaintances-- old and young.
During a protracted and painful illness she suffered with an uncomplaining fortitude truly heroic. All hoped-- alas! hopelessly-- that she might see the violets bloom again-- that the soft south wind would give new life and vigor to her exhausted frame. But He, who doeth all things well, took her home, where no rude or chilling blast can come. The daisys and violets of early spring shall deck the grave of a loved and lost one.
While pausing over her cherished dust, we recall the many virtues, the truth and loveliness once associated with it; we look thence into the future, where all sweet impulses shall be in perfect and perpetual bloom; and we contrast the life of long-suffering meekness, that is closed, with the life that is to come, dimly seen, far away, by the "delectable mountains," and know that it is well.
Long will she be missed by those who knew and loved her....

RAILROAD MEETING. On Thursday evening last quite a number of our citizens assembled at the Court House, and were addressed by Mr. GLEASON, who has been connected with the Cincinnati, Peru & Chicago R.R., as Engineer on this line. Mr. Gleason seems to think that the completion of a Railroad from Plymouth to Peru is far from being impossible. His plans for its construction are lst. The formation of a new Company, and the purchase of the road bed, and right of way, from the old Company. 2d The construction of a cheap road instead of a first class thoroughfare, as formerly proposed from Plymouth to Peru. He estimates the cost of construction ready for laying the track, including bridges and ties at $70,000, and thinks there would be no difficulty in securing the iron, and the completion of the road after it is made ready for track laying, by mortgaging the Road. This has generally been true of all other roads. Mr. Gleason is a candid man and we doubt not states facts, or at least conclusions of a candid practical mind. The meeting was also addressed by Mr. FULWILER, of Peru, but we have not room for further comment this week.

SAD CASUALTY. We learn that the oldest son of Benjamin GIFFORD, of Green Oak, in this county, about seven years old, was drowned by falling into a well in that place, on last Saturday afternoon. A number of children were around the well and this boy stepped upon a plank of a loose platform which served as a trap door to precipitate him into the well, and falling after him inflicted a severe wound on the head. When taken from the well life was extinct.
On the receipt of the news of LINCOLN'S NOMINATION the Republicans of our
town commenced swelling.
One of the old banners of 1856, containing at least sixteen stars, was hoisted at the mercury office. About twenty boys assembled at the Court yard and discharged quite a number of small cartridges, and an attempt was made to get up a crowd by throwing fire balls, but the enthusiasm vanished in spite of all the efforts of the mercury man and his correspondent.
Dr. E. N. BANKS, of Millark, has been appointed by Hon. E. G. ENGLISH, Deputy United States Marshal to take the Census of Fulton County. Mr. Banks is a sound Democrat and well qualified for the position.
Posters have been diligently circulated during the present week, calling on all in favor of "land for the landless" to "rally" tonight, and carry a tallow-dip, in honor of "the man who can split rails and maul Democrats." This Lincoln is the same individual who received a "mauling" at the hands of one Douglas, two years ago, and who in all probability will be chosen to give him his presidential mauling.

The citizens of our quiet town were much surprised, on last Sabbath evening, to learn that the house of Henry E. BOHLS, residing three miles east of this place, was robbed of some $980, during the absence of the family at church.

The money was American gold, and was deposited in a chest of clothes, the house was closed, the door being secured (as was supposed) by a padlock. When the family returned from church at one oclock, the staple of the lock was drawn, the clothing from the bureau drawers and the chest were strewn about the floor and the money missing.

HON. HUGH MILLER (editorial)
The Democratic Senatorial Convention, which met near Perrysburg on Saturday last, to nominate a candidate for Senator for the district, composed of the counties of Miami and Fulton in the nomination of Judge MILLER for that important position, made a most wise and fortunate selection. Judge Miller is one of the oldest settlers of Fulton County, and in his long and popular career, has filled many important and responsible positions with great ability and the most strict integrity.
He has been Schoolmaster, County Surveyor, a member of the Constitutional Convention, a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, a member of the Legislature and Senator.
As an evidence of the Judge's popularity, we will mention that in 1856 he beat his Republican competitor for Senator when the district had a Republican majority of about 500.
Always a stern and unflinching Democrat, the leaders of the opposition have recoiled in dismay from entering the lists in controversy with him.
Always a true and devoted advocate of the interests of the people there is not a stain upon his political record and he justifies in his life the sentiment of the poet that "An honest man is the noblest work of God." Plain and unassuming, yet affable and familiar, he wins the hearts of all by his uniform courtesy, and his kindness and benevolence has sent rejoicing to many a poor man's household.
Although several other gentlemen were spoken of as candidates before the convention for the office of Senator, who are excellent men, and if nominated would have made a strong race, they generally yielded their claims and the Judge was nominated by a unanimous vote of the two counties.
The people have in Judge Miller a candidate in whose hands their interests will be entirely safe, and we predict for him a triumphant election.
NOTICE. There will be a public meeting of the order of Good Templars at the M.E. Church, in Rochester, on Thursday evening the 16th inst., there will be a lecture suitable to the occasion. Turn out and see. By Order of the Lodge.

DIED. On the first inst., in Rochester, of Consumption or hemorrhage of the
lungs, Lucinda B. [ROBBINS], consort of Dr. A. H. ROBBINS, aged 29 years and 9
She was the daughter of David and Leah SMALL-- was joined in marriage with her now bereaved companion some nine years ago. She professed the Christian Religion and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, while she was yet a girl. Hence, though summoned to the spirit land ere her sun had reached its summit, looking to the hour and spot where love Divine first found her, she would see that years had passed away, and could say with the poet: Through many dangers, toils, and snares I have already come.... she manifested considerable emotion, but then to bid adieu to companion and little daughter here, was only to be introduced to her three babes that had gone before. She lingered until the evening of the lst inst., when suddenly and unexpectedly she passed away-- ceased to breathe on earth-- to live in Heaven. Her funeral was attended by a large circle of friends. There were eyes moistened that seldom weep. She was an affectionate companion, socially reserved, yet cheerful, as a Christian timid, yet firm, such an one as none knew but to respect and love. May we meet her in Heaven. -- F. TAYLOR.

On Thursday night last the ever active Democracy of Henry township held one of their old fashioned meetings at Sheet's School House. Dave ZARTMAN was there with all his assistant drummers and fifers, and the BELTS -- who does not know the Belts, with their shrill fifes, and thundering drums, who can, when called on in the old Democratic cause, make more noise in the world than almost any other set of fellows of their size? The Belts were there, and besides them all the Democracy of the "region round about." The spacious house was jammed full and the windows blocked by the crowd outside. N. G. SHAFFER and Dr. E. N. BANKS addressed the meeting. Nels was in good trim, and held forth for near two hours to one of the most attentive crowds ever addressed. Dr. Banks followed in a pertinent and forcible speech, eliciting much applause from the audience. The meeting broke up with three deafening cheers for the Democracy of the Union, and the thunder of the martial bands in their progress homeward made the woods echo for miles around. Hurrah for Henry Township!

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, September 29, 1860
C. W. MUGG, the late able and independent editor of the Northern Indianian at Warsaw has commenced a new paper in that place and calls it the Experiment. Mr. M. is an excellent political writer, and the Indianian under his management was decidedly the best Republican paper in the State, but he appears to have been too independent, and too well aware perhaps of his own worth to become a tool of the miserable clique of small beer politicians who rule the Republican party in that benighted county.
Levi M. MONTGOMERY has been duly nominated by the Democracy of Richland for
Assessor of that township.
.... With deference to the opinions of the voters of the other counties of this district we would propose Alphonso A. COLE, Esq., of Miami County, as a candidate for the Judgeship. Mr. Cole is a lawyer by profession, a farmer by occupation; having the reputation of a first class counsellor and able jurist, and a man who, we believe, would discharge his duties, if elected, with fidelity, and credit to himself, and to the District generally.
We hope the Peru Sentinel, Logansport Pharos, and other papers of the district will express their opinion upon the subject.
Since the above was written we have received the following announcement in the Pharos:
"Judicial-- A. A. COLE, Esq., of Peru, is a candidate for Common Pleas Judge in the District composed of Cass, Miami, Fulton, Kosciusko and Wabash. He has legal talents of a high order, and men of all political parties say he will make an excellent Judge and should be elected. He will be, if the people want the best man."

I would say to those interested that by seeing me in person at Millark, six miles east of Rochester, I can put them in a way of having the deaf, dumb, blind, and insane cared for at our Institutions at Indianapolis free of charge. E. N. BANKS, Assistant Marshal.
We have always considered sorghum a bore; but must confess that the specimen left at our office by Alphonso DREW is very nice-- really a success.

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, October 20, 1860
The dwelling house a mile east of town, occupied by Rev. F. TAYLOR, who is absent attending Conference, came near being destroyed by fire on Tuesday inst. It appears that a little son of Mr. Taylor's having possessed himself of a lot of matches crawled through the scuttle, and groped his way to the east wing of the building, where he proceeded to amuse himself by setting fire to wasp's nests. He soon succeeded in demolishing a number of nests, and setting the roof on fire, whereupon he hastened down and informed the family that he guessed the house was afire. The flames were by this time issuing from the roof, and no men being on the premises, it devolved on women to subdue them. To the presence of mind and intrepidity of Miss Nank. AULT is due the safety of the building. She, with the utmost difficulty, succeeded in clambering to the roof with a bucket of water, and partially subduing the fire, but it required the application of several buckets of water to extinguish it entirely. It was a providential escape.

Pursuant to the adjournment on the previous evening, the citizens of Rochester who were interested in the opening of the RAIL ROAD from Peru to Plymouth, met at the Court House, on the evening of Friday, March 16, 1860. When, on motion of I. W. HOLEMAN, A. J. HOLMES was called to the chair, and S. KEITH was appointed Secretary. Short but spirited addresses were made by L. J. BROWN, I. W. HOLEMAN and K. G. SHRYOCK, Esqrs., setting forth the importance of having the road speedily opened, and showing in clear and hopeful terms that the thing can be done, if the citizens will only make "a long pull, a short pull, and a pull all together." Mr. GLEASON then came forward and stated substantially the plan which he had presented on the previous evening.
K. G. SHRYOCK then offered the following resolution which was unanimously
Resolved, That we will hold a meeting at the Court House, in Rochester, on the 11th day of April, 1860, at 1 oclock, p.m., for the purpose of organizing a Company to construct a Rail Road from Plymouth by way of Rochester, to Peru, in Miami County, and that notice of such meeting be given in each of the papers published in this County....
POTTOWATTOMIE MILL. This mill is both an honor and an ornament to our town
and county. It is decidedly the best Mill in this part of the country, and no
better water power in the State. The mill property with the improvements cost
about $22,000. Had we a few more such enterprising gentlemen as Mr. A. F. SMITH
our Town and County would present a different aspect, and business that is now
drawn from us for want of improvements, such as Mills, Woolen Factories, Forges
(when we have the best Ore in the country) would at once give to many employment
who are now idle.
We are aware that we need an outlet by Railroad, but much might be done that would be of interest to the community without such outlet. When we have men who do make such improvements as are a lasting benefit to the community the projectors of such improvements should be liberally patronized.
Mr. Smith has of late made some additional improvements to his merchant mill, and is now ready to grind, for toll, Wheat, Corn, Rye, Buckwheat, &c., and as for the flour made at the Pottowattomie Mill we can speak from experience when we say there is no better flour made in the country; if there is we should like to see a sample and we will notice it.

His parents, and nearly all his relatives are living in Albany, and the news of his death will be surprising and sad indeed to them. But the sad news has gone forth that death has snatched him from this wide world of care, and borne him to a happier and better clime.
Thus suddenly has a doting wife been bereaved of an amiable companion, and three interesting children of a fond and affectionate father, and a large circle of relatives and friends, and the whole society of which he was a highly esteemed member, been called to weep over the ashes of departed worth. A high order of talents, and amiable disposition, and goodness of heart, rendered him one of the bright flowers on earth, and no doubt his brilliance is increased in the spirit world. With his many friends, relatives, and brothers of the orders to which he was warmly attached, we, too, drop a tear to his memory.

SUICIDE. Our Town was startled on Sunday morning last, the 9th inst., by the
sad intelligence that Mr. Caleb FITZGERALD of this place had cut his throat with
a razor, severing both of the external jugular veins, thereby causing his death
in a short time-- supposed to have been laboring under a fit of partial
derangement at the time.
Mr. F. as is well known has been subject to repeated fits of despondency for several years past, growing out of pecuniary matters, and which condition has been a source of much anxiety on the part of his family and friends requiring careful watching at such times, to guard him from committing the act, which has been finally consumated, and which has at such periods like a spectre come over his mind. Such has been the state of his mind during the preceding week, when eluding the vigilance of his family, he committed the deed which has thus terminated his life. He was known as a valued citizen of the County of which he had been an old resident.
His age was about 55 years. To his family the shock has been overwhelming, and they have the warmest sympathy of the community in their sad affliction.

"Grandfather Hoover" by which venerable name he was known, lived beyond the "three score and ten alotted to man;" lived to daudle his great-great-grandchildren upon his knee. Dr. Jerome HOOVER, of Nemah City, and who is considered one of our old men, is the eldest son, Henry Hoover was born in Randolph county, North Carolina, Oct. 7th, 1785 from which place in the fall of 1836 to Fulton county, Indiana, and from there to Nemah county, Nebraska, in the Spring of 1855. His mental and physical faculties were wonderfully preserved. Having always enjoyed good health he was as active up to within a few weeks of his death as most men at middle age. We were shown some manuscript of his writing within the past year, that was really an excellent specimen of penmanship.

& BURSON, Attys for Piff.
ROCHESTER MERCURY - Thursday, October 10, 1861
DIED. Catharine BROWN FARRY, was born May 2d, 1824, in Miami County, Ohio,
and departed this life April 9th, 1861.
Sister FarTy was converted to God and joined the M.E. Church Dec. 1842. Was married April 4th, 1843 to Silas H. FARRY, removed to Fulton County, Indiana, in Oct., 1849, where she finished her earthly career.
Sister Farry, through her Christian life, has been an active and influential member of the Church of her choice, adorning the doctrines of God her savior till her death. Her studious habits qualified her for usefulness in an eminent degree, and gave her an influence over her associates for good in every circle where she moved.
She was a great admirer of the peculiarities of Methodism such as the class room, and lovefeast, and had a thorough acquaintance with the doctrines and literature of the church, which she greatly admired. She has been a subscriber to and constant reader of our periodicals for many years.
But the peculiar trait in her character, was that her piety to God, which was deep and abiding. Her daily walk was a constant exemplification of the practical power of Religion, over the heart and life, she died as she lived in steadfast hope....
A husband and five small children are left to mourn, but not as those who have no hope. God comfort the bereaved, and keep them unto everlasting life. Jesse SPARKS.

And further more I shall hold all persons who may employ her responsible for her wages. Joseph RICHARDSON, Dated October 10th, 1861.
ROCHESTER MERCURY - Thursday, October 17, 1861
In our hurry of our last week's issue, we neglected to mention the return of Mr. John H. STAILEY from Washington. He is looking finely; likes life in the Capital and has no fears of the rebels taking the city. He will return to Washington, with his family in a few days-
FIRE. An alarm of fire was sounded, last Saturday night, about eleven oclock. It proved to be a privy on the premises of A. HALE, Esq., which some young rascal had set on fire. It would be well for these boys to remember that three or five years of hard labor in the penitentiary would be dear pay for the amusement afforded by such a piece of rascality, and yet, if by any chance they should be detected, they would undoubtedly suffer such a penalty.
THE NEW MILITARY COMPANY. Most of our citizens are aware of the fact that for
some three or four weeks past, Dr. B. A. GROVER, J. H. LEITER and Robert SHIELDS
of Akron, have been recruiting for a company to form a part of Senator FITCH'S
Regiment, now forming at Logansport.
From all we have been able to learn, the prospects for the company are highly flattering.... Fulton County has done well, and with three full companies in the field, as she will have when this one enters the service, we shall feel proud of her share in putting down the rebellion.
Mr. Philip YOUNG of Newcastle Township has presented us with a basket of apples of superior quality and much larger than any we have seen before this year....

ROCHESTER MERCURY - Thursday, November 6, 1861
Dr. Charles BRACKETT, who has been for sometime past an assistant surgeon in one of our Regiments in Southern Missouri, got home last night. He has been sick, but is so far recovered as to be himself again.
We notice that Mr. HEFFLEY has removed his wagon shop one door north of his old location, having devoted the whole of the former shop to his blacksmithing department....
We find the following touching tribute to our lately deceased fellow citizen,
Mr. Adam PENCE, in the St. Joseph Valley Register. It is from the pen of our
distinguished representative in Congress, the Hon. Schuyler COLFAX:
"Nineteen years ago, when a lad, we were going to Indianapolis on a borrowed horse, to be delivered there, to report the proceedings of the Indiana Legislature, at a compensation that just about paid for board and clothes. We stopped at the house of this good old man over night; and as, in the evening's chat at his fireside, he learned of our straitened finances, he sent us on our way rejoicing the next morning without accepting any money for our bill. Often have we talked over our first acquaintance, as we have met him in repeated canvasses since; and we have never forgotten this little act of friendship and good will. Our heart is saddened as we read that having arrived at his three score years and ten, he has passed away, and that we shall never meet him again, and we lay this brief tribute to his memory on his fresh made grave.
In pursuance of a call for aid in supplying our volunteers with sundry articles, necessary for their health and comfort, a Society has been organized under the name, ROCHESTER SOLDIERS' AID SOCIETY, and the following officers chosen: President, Mrs. A. K. PLANK, Vice Presidents, Mrs. D. W. LYON and A. J. HOLMES, Esq., Secretary, Miss C. E. DINSMORE, Treasurer, Miss C. FITZGERALD, Executive Committee, Miss D. MERRIAM, Miss Lottie McDONALD, Mrs. L. E. SHRYOCK, Mr. D. W. LYON and Mr. Robert GOULD....
The UNION SCHOOL has now been in session over two weeks.. .... The Board of
Instructors consists of Principal, N. L. LORD. Assistants, Miss Carrie DINSMORE,
Mrs. Mary P. FULLER and Miss Mary LAKIN.
There are now in attendance about 180 pupils, and the number will doubtless reach 200 before the middle of the term.
MARRIED. On the 31st ult., at the residence of Reuben TALLY, by Corydon E. FULLER, Mr. Rolla M. PHELPS and Miss Minerva A. ROLAND, all of this place....

SAD AFFAIR. Our citizens were thrown into a commotion on last Sabbath morning, by the announcement on the street, that one of our old and esteemed citizens, Caleb FITZGERALD, had attempted suicide by cutting his throat with a razor. Several of his neighbors ran into the house immediately on the alarm being given by his family, and physicians were in attendance in a few moments, but nothing could be done to stop the ebb of life, and he expired in about an hour after his fatal act was known to the family, which could not have been more than a minute or two after the act. He had been about business as usual during the week, and on the morning of the sad affair, was at his stable as usual attending to stock, but manifested low spirits and restlessness and without doubt reason was dethroned to a great extent at least at the time of the desperate act. He was about fifty-five years of age.

OBITUARY of Thos. MARTIN, formerly a resident of this county: (From the
Pacific Christian Advocate) Departed this life, Jan. 7th, near the town of Walla
Walla, W.T., Thomas MARTIN, in the 46th year of his age. The deceased had been
afflicted with consumption for ten years, but not for any lengthy period during
that time was he confined to his bed; consequently, as is generally the case
with those having that malady, he almost steadfastly entertained hopes of
recovery up to a few months of his dissolution.
His parents were among the early emigrants from Ohio to Indiana, where he resided till 1852, when he brought his family to Oregon and settled successively on Shealwater Bay, at the Dalles and at Walla Walla. He united with the M.E. Church, as a seeker of religion, on Oct. 1859, upon the formation of first class in this valley, and gave evidence of a change of heart in May following. From this time he remained a consistent member until released from the church triumphant. His sufferings at times were great, but he bore them with Christian fortitude and resignation. To the writer he often declared, in substance, that he had been a great sinner; that he had a good hope of heaven; that his hope was founded upon the atonement of Christ; that God had greatly blessed him, spiritually and temperally, and that he believed God would take care of his wife and four little children. To his now grief stricken widow he said on the night before he died: "Do not sorrow for my departure, because I shall be happy in heaven. Do you not hear the music of angels? O, how sweet it is, they are in my room; they are come to convey my spirit home."
About two hours before the soul left the body he arose from his bed and expressed a desire for refreshments, which being soon furnished him he ate hearily and laid himself down again, but feeling death to be now rapidly approaching he had his children called up and then further enjoined upon his wife the duty of educating them in such a manner that they might all meet him in heaven. He then pronounced his future blessing upon them and shortly after losing the power of utterance he passed off into the presence of "The Judge of all the earth," affording another fulfillment of the saying, "Our people die well." To Father, Son, and ever blessed Spirit belong all the praise. Amen. -- C. M. BERRY, Walla Walla, Jan. 25th, 1861.
DIED. On the 24th ult., of Consumption, Priscilla [REMENSNIDER], wife of Michael REMENSNIDER, aged 23 years.
The deceased leaves a father, husband, and two children to mourn her untimely loss.

OBITUARY. Catharine Brown FARRY, was born May 2d, 1824, in Miami County,
Ohio, and departed this life April 9th, 1861.
Sister Farry was converted to God and joined the M.E. Church Dec. 1842. Was married April 4th 1843, to Silas H. FARRY, removed to Fulton County, Indiana, in Oct. 1846, where she finished her earthly career.
Sister FARRY, through her Christian life has been an active and influential member of the Church of her choice, adorning the doctrines of God her savior till her death. Her studeous habits qualified her for usefulness in an eminent degree, and gave her an influence over her associates for good in every circle where she moved.
She was a great admirer of the peculiarities of Methodism such as the class room, and lovefeast, and had a thorough acquaintance with the doctrines and literature of the church, which she greatly admired. She has been a subscriber to, and constant reader of our periodical for many years.
But the peculiar trait in her character, was that her piety to God, which was deep, and abiding. Her daily walk was a constant exemplification of the practical power of Religion, over the heart and life, she died as she lived in steadfast hope ....

DIED. Coroner TOWNSEND assisted by Dr. W. T. CLELAND of Pleasant Grove, held
an inquest and post mortem examination on Monday last, over the body of Mrs.
Lucy Jane DUNN of Bloomingsburg, in Newcastle Township, in this county whose
death occurred some five weeks since. The coronet's jury returned a verdict that
the death of the deceased was caused by strangulation, and that they believe her
husband, James DUNN, committed the act.
Dunn fled as soon as suspicions arose that his deceased wife came to her death by violence. We hope he will be caught, and if guilty subjected to punishment, and what punishment can be too great for such a fiend in human shape.

ROCHESTER SENTINEL - Saturday, November 8, 1862
EDITORIAL. Another Eruption of Spleen.
The miserable thing that runs the Chronicle is out again this week with another stream of foul abuse against the editor of the Sentinel. The editor of the Chronicle professes to be a devout and moral man. But every indication shows that he is a natural blackguard. Blackguardism is his natural element, and he can no more live out of it, than a fish can live out of water. We compelled him to swallow a base falsehood that he perpetrated in mutilating a quotation from the Sentinel. He got mad because he had to retract his infamous lie, and forthwith proceeds to abuse us in the very lowest fishmarket style. His assertion that the Sentinel is a "secesh sheet," and all his assertions about the personal character of the editor of the Sentinel are contemptible lies.
He is a Liar of the Deepest dye and if he had not "skedaddled" out of town, on the day that his paper came out, we would have administered to him, what he so richly deserved, a good horse whipping. We know that we have our faults like other men. We do not pretend to be a Saint, like the sanctimonius hypocrite down the street, but we know one thing, we know that we are not mean enough to deprive a poor printer boy, of a part of his wages, because he left the office to enlist, and help fight for the restoration of the Union. That fatherless boy is now in the army, fighting heroically, and perhaps suffering for the want of some of the means, he was thus brutally kept out of. Yet we can procure the affidavit of more than one reliable gentleman, that they have sufficient evidence to enduce them to believe that, that low lived trick was perpetrated by the low, filthy, mangy, spindle shanked, lantern jawed, slab sided, sore shinned, hip shodden, devil ridden, hound that edits the Chronicle.
In conclusion, we acknowledge that an apology is due to the readers of the Sentinel, for devoting so much space to a notice of the editor of the Chronicle. If he continues his abuse, we will be strongly tempted, hereafter, to obviate the necessity of noticing him in the Sentinel, by treating him to a sound kicking, that is, if we can find a pair of boots mean and dirty enough for the purpose, & provided the democracy will grant us absolution, for accosting such a foul abolitionist, and some competent physician will assure us that we will not catch the leprosy by coming in contact with such vile carrion.
(Compiler's Note: Most editorials have not been copied or abstracted. Generally they were of a political nature reflecting the bitterness of war time and strong opposition to the Lincoln administration, yet displaying patriotism of the people of this community. We have included in its entirety the above editorial primarily for the purpose of demonstrating the freedom of expression exercised by editors of that time. WCT)
INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS. The business men about town, to obviate the difficulty in making change, have issued checks for sums less than one dollar. They relieve the money pressure greatly, and go readily in payment of taxes.

Dr. Theo. HORTON, Wells County, Ind., released from "Government Bastile" at Indianapolis. He is a brother-in-law of our esteemed townsman, Wm. WALLACE, Esq.
Theological debate last week at Akron, between Messrs. CORBALEY and COOPER.
Lieut. Mark McAFFEE of Capt. WOODS company 87th Reg., intends to return to
his Regiment in the early part of next week. If any of the friends of the
soldiers in Capt. Woods or Capt. TRUSLOW'S company wish to send them boots,
socks, gloves or letters, the Lieutenant will take them along and carry them
through safely if possible.
Lieut. McAFFEE has visited many families of the soldiers in the army, and has found many quite destitute, but refused to apply to the proper authorities for relief, because they had been led to believe that it reduces them to the county poor. Now this is manifestly wrong. The County Commissioners and other citizens of Fulton County have made provisions to provide for the families of the soldiers; and it is right and proper, and honorable and just in them to apply for relief whenever they may require it.

PROBABLE MURDER. We learn that an inquest and post mortem examination was
held on Monday last over the body of Mrs. Lucy Jane DUNN, of Newcastle Township,
in this county, whose death occurred some five weeks since. The Coroner's Jury
returned as their verdict that the death of the deceased was caused by
strangulation; and that they believe her husband, James DUNN, to have committed
the wicked act.
We regret to learn that the fiendish villain has been permitted to make his escape. We trust no effort will be spared to arrest him so that he may receive the punishment he so richly deserves.

LETTER FROM DR. BRACKETT. Camp near Jacksonport, Ark., Tousall's Plantation, June 23, 1862... Hooker's men to the number of 180, fired on our boys, firing at about thirty paces, wounding thirteen, and unhorsing one private, STRONG, and Captain CAMERON.... Private Strong, disabled by his horse falling on him, was unable to walk, and after trying in vain to get on the horse with Private Joseph B. CHAMBERLAIN, who was also wounded with a ball in his left side.... he crawled off to the side of the road, when the captain of the secesh, or commander of one company, came up to him, and using insulting language, threatened to have him shot. Strong, a perfect lion for courage, snatched a pistol from him, and shot him through; this so charmed the barbarians that they took good care of Strong, and he is now safe among them, occupying a tent with Lieutenant EASTON, who is taking good care of him. How natural this is for a semi-barbarous people! They would have shot him, as they did poor PRINDLE, of Company G, some time before, if he had shown any symptoms of fear or non-resistance. They are about on a par with the clique in your place, who last season brought on a cargo of revolvers, and carried them with the avowed purpose of shooting Lincolnites, when at the same time, they were circulating through New Castle township, the absurd rumors, that Charles J. STRADLEY and I, with other Republicans, were intending to destroy the Democracy from New Castle, when they visited the town.... Charles BRACKETT.

We are seldom called upon in these unhappy times, to chronicle so sad an event as the death of our young friend and fellow-soldier. Just budding into the fullness of manhood, with a strong arm and patriotic heart, at the call of his country, he gave up the pleasures and comforts of a quiet home,, and entered the army of the Union to battle for Liberty. Among his comrades kind and obliging at every call of duty prompt in the battle's front ever, brave, he won the love and esteem of all who knew him.
After many months of hard service, worn down with arduous duty, he was compelled to quit his Regiment and become an inmate of the hospital, where, after a protracted illness, he died; strong with patriotic love, and Christian hope. The body was brought home for burial, in which solemn rite quite a number of the members of his own company participated. The funeral took place from the residence of his father, Jacob WHITTENBERGER, Esq., of Akron, and a large circle of relatives, together with the numerous friends and acquaintances of the deceased, joined in the procession. The ceremonies conducted by Rev. Mr. WOLVERTON, were impressive, and the occasion was one of deep interest.
Peace to the honored memory of the young and brave.... A COMRADE....

DIED. At Nashville, Tenn., on the 17th of October, Thomas S. LAY, of Henry
Township, aged 29 years.
Mr. Lay entered the service of his country, something more than a year ago, as a private in the 5lst Ind. Volunteers. He was a man highly respected at home, and performed a soldiers duty with honor to himself, and at last fell a victim to the hardships of camp life. He had received an honorable discharge from the service, on account of physical disability, but was too far gone to reach home and died, far away among strangers, in a strange land.
He leaves a wife and two children, one an infant whom he had never seen, and the other a bright little girl just old enough to be interesting. These are being kindly cared for by his father, Mr. Joseph LAY, one of the pioneers of our county, and one of its most respected citizens. Thus his only son has perished, a victim to the mad rebellion against our government. The sympathies of every patriotic heart must be enlisted in behalf of those who mourn his untimely loss.

LETTER from Jerome CARPENTER. Camp 5 miles North of Gallatin, Tenn., November 27, 1862. Friend Fuller: .... In regard to the health of our regiment, I suppose it is as good as could be expected. There are several, however, who are absent from us, that I hear are not sick. I do not envy them their position. I will mention a few that I recollect, who are on the sick list. Banner LAWHEAD is tolerable sick, but is under the treatment of Dr. Vernon GOULD, and I think is much better than he was a day or two ago. He is lying in our tent, and is receiving all the attention necessary for his speedy recovery. He has the lung fever. George LOOMIS has an attack of inflammatory rheumatism and has been quite sick for several days. He was sent to Gallatin, to the hospital, this morning. Dr. Gould has been tending on him also, and thinks it may be some time before he is able for duty. James BARRETT is also at Gallatin. Lieutenant D. MOW is very poorly, and in all probability will have to resign his position, his health being so poor that he cannot stand the exposure of camp life .... I almost forgot to say that Lieutenant TRUSLOW has been promoted to Captain in place of Captain PLANK, and Lieut. MOW, from the 2d to 1st Lieutenant; and Orderly H. C. LONG to 2d Lieut; also in Company D, Lieut. HUGHS has been promoted to the Captaincy, and Abel O'BLENNIS to 1st Lieutenant. I suppose you have heard that I was lucky enough to get the appointment of Commissary Sergeant for this regiment. This places me on the list of non-commissioned staff officers. I am well pleased with my situation, and shall endeavor by strict attention to business, to make myself worthy of the favor conferred upon me by Colonel SHRYOCK.... Yours until Death, Jerome CARPENTER, Commissary Sergt., 87th Ind. Vols.
T. F. RANNELLS, Sutler of the 87th, is at home on a short visit .... He is looking as well as ever, and that is saying a good deal, as he is a very good-looking fellow.

CAMP NEAR GALLATIN, TENN., Dec. 5, 1862. Dear Father and Mother: I sit down
this snowy morning to inform you that I am well and in excellent spirits,
especially since Lieut. McAFEE arrived here. He came last night, and we met him
at the depot. It took nine of us to carry the huge sack of articles he had for
us .... There was gloom cast over the boys of Company D, yesterday morning, by
the death of one of our fellow soldiers-- James QUIGG. He died about 7 oclock in
the morning, lying in his tent, on the ground, It was a hard sight. He was
perfectly crazy all night; it took three men to keep him still. The last words
he said were, that he wanted us to go for Charley BRACKETT, as fast as we could.
We made a box and buried him by the side of two other soldiers. James was a
first rate civil boy, and was loved by all the company.
Also, John NEWBY died in the hospital at Gallatin, last week. He was a stout, rugged man when we came out.
About two hours after we had buried QUIGG, McAFEE came, and he brought a good pair of boots for him and sundry other articles; also, some things for NEWBY. It made us all feel bad to think they were not here to enjoy them.
Rufus and Clark HOLDER are at Bowling Green yet, but McAFEE says they are getting along finely....Kline S. WILSON.
T. F. RANNELLS left for Nashville yesterday morning.
