On Sunday last at 8 oclock in the morning the spirit of JOSHUA NIXON took its flight to that better world. He was sick just 53 days, a greater portion of which time he was not in his right mind and could not recognize his most intimate friends. ROBERT NIXON, of Oswego, Kansas, arrived at the bedside of his dying brother only a couple of hours before he breathed his last. Mr. NIXON was born in Ohio in 1813, and moved to Newport in 1828, he then being only 15 years of age. He resided here up to the time of his decease, and was respected by everyone as an honorable, upright citizen. He had but few enemies, if any. He had been a true and accepted member of the M.E. Church for the last 20 years. The funeral took place last Monday afternoon, at his late residence, Rev. W.A. SMITH, of Shawnee, Tippecanoe County, officiating. After services the remains were followed by the relatives and a large concourse of friends to the Thomas Cemetery, where the inanimate clay was lowered into the silent grave, there to await the morn of the resurrection.

The death angel came to the home of MADISON and MINERVA NOLAN, of St. Bernice, on the morning of the 29th instant, and claimed VACHEL NOLAN, their only boy. For 10 short summers he made sunshine on earth, then went home to bask in the light of God. He exhibited a precocity of thoughtfulness beyond his years, and his love for the good, the beautiful and the true endeared him to all, and his obedience and kindness made him the special favorite of his parents. To God they gave him with tears. They knew him by one name, the angels by another. His last illness occupied nearly one month of intense suffering, but it is past. The weary nights of watching and pains are gone. His remains are resting in the Clinton Cemetery.
