SHOT AT MONTREAL - A telegram was
received here last night from Montreal stating that Samuel IRVIN, of this
city, had been shot in that city, and was dead. No particulars were given.
IRVIN was employed for a time last year at the Osburn House, and was a
sergeant in the Gray's Artillery. He married a daughter of John McDERMONT.
Mrs. I. is at Palmyra, and her father went there this morning to inform her
of the event, and will then probably go to Montreal for the body. Deceased
had relatives in St. Lawrence Co., and had been there a few weeks.
ROY & McFARLIN'S CLOTHING HOUSE
- The widely-known and extensive establishment of Roy & McFARLIN, corner
of Buffalo and Front streets, is now filled to repletion with clothing, all
made of the best material and in the most durable manner, Gentlemen wishing
to feel comfortable and look elegant this coming winter, can be fitted out
to their entire satisfaction at this establishment, both as to goods and
prices. Parents desiring their sons to resemble them in gentility as well as
in physical respects, will not fail to take them to the great store of Roy
& McFarlin, corner of Front and Buffalo streets. At that place they will
find everything to metamorphose a little boy into a little gentleman, and
experienced and tasteful fitters to rig them out with the best advantage to
their personal appearance. Boys of all sizes, from little five-year-olds up
to romantic youths with sprouting moustaches, can alike acquire a princely
appearance at Roy & McFarlin's. See advertisement.
DRESSED HOGS - There was a pretty
large show of dressed hogs in the streets this morning. We do not refer to
those two legged animals who loiter about the corners and occupy the public
thoroughfares to the exclusion of honest people who have occasion to get
about, but to the dead animals brought by the farmers. It is
gratifying to observe that the tendency in prices is downward. Thirteen
cents per pound appeared to be the outside price to-day, and buyers were not
as eager as sellers at that. It is difficult to understand how buyers can
pack, or ship eastward at this price, though they are doing both.
NEW BILLIARD SALOON - The new
billiard saloon was opened under the Osburn House last night. Mr. THRALL, of
the Osburn, decided a year or two since to convert the dining saloon in the
basement of the hotel into a billiard room when he could obtain possession.
He has now succeeded. The room is a spacious one and has been handsomely
fitted up and furnished for billiards. There are three of Phelan &
Collender's best tables and all the appurtenances requisite. The new room
will be a popular resort for the guests of the Osburn and gentlemen of the
city who enjoy billiards.
In this city, November 29th, Bertha
A., youngest daughter of the late S_lva and Ann A___, of this city, aged 13
years and 3 months.
-Funeral from the residence of the
mother of deceased, No. 72 Kent street, to-morrow (Friday) at two o'clock P.
M. Friends are invited to attend.
On Wednesday, the 22d inst., in the
town of Spring Brook, Wisconsin, Antoinette SHAW, wife of Francis BRECK,
formerly of this city.
