On Saturday last as John DeFOREST of Rogers Hollow, in Unadilla, was at work in a field near a piece of woods a gun went off in the thicket, and the charge flew past him very near his head. Supposing it to be from a hunter, Mr. D. changed his location some twenty rods or more to another part of the field, and went on with his work. Soon another gun was fired in the woods, and he was hit in the neck by a bullet which passed through the aesophagus, cutting it nearly off, and passing very near the jugular vein, it lodged in the right shoulder. Mr. DeForest was immediately attended by Dr. Halsey of Unadilla, who cut the bullet from the shoulder, and is doing all he can for the sufferer, though with but little prospect of saving his life. The shots were made by Gilbert ROGERS, who says he was shooting squirrels and birds. There has been some difficulty between these parties, and the case requires a searching investigation. We learn that Rogers has been arrested, and was to be examined at Unadilla yesterday, but we are not advised of the result. Altogether this is a very strange affair. 8/14/1867 OBITUARY OF DEACON GILBERT. The passing away of this venerable citizen of Otsego county is appropriately remembered by the Pastor of the church where he had been so long a worshipper in the obituary on our first page. Such models of sterling manhood, unwearied industry, generous hospitality and steady handed piety, and patriotism, should be a study for all young men. OBITUARY highlights: Died at Gilbertsville (Butternuts) July 13th, Deacon Joseph T. GILBERT in the 85th year of his age. Born Attleborough, England May 1st, 1783; came with his parents to America at age of 9 years and at age 16 came to reside in Gilbertsville, where he has continuously lived for sixty-eight years and where his long life was brought to a happy close. .. But in his character as a religious man his friend feels the deepest interest. He has been a member of the Presbyterian church in Gilbertsville for 59 years and during this time has sustained an unblemished character. In his conversion his convictions of sin were deep and purged, and as a consequence his views of the way of salvation by the Redeemer were clear and his whole hope centered in the cross. . Eleven of his children-of whom there are 13 living, together with many sons and daughters-in-law, and grand and great grandchildren- were present at his funeral, and bore tenderly the remains of their honored father to the grave. Saml. J. White, Pastor. FATAL KERISESNE ACCIDENT.- On July 29th a daughter of Lewis HOGABOOM, living at the Summit, Broome Co., and aged about 14 years, was kindling a fire for dinner. To facilitate, she took the can of kerosene oil and poured it upon the wood and in lighting it the can took fire and exploded, throwing the fire upon her clothing. She was instantly enveloped in flames and ran out of doors screaming for help. A man at work in the field at some distance heard her cries and hastened to her assistance but before he reached her she was burned in the most terrible manner the flesh dropping from many parts of her body. She lived until eight o'clock in the evening when death put an end to her sufferings. Let this be another warning against the prevalent practice of using kerosene for kindling.- Deposit Courier. OTSEGO COUNTY ITEMS. John DeFOREST, of Unadilla, who was shot in the singular way we announced last week, died of his wound on Wednesday last. Gilbert ROGERS who fired the fatal shot was arrested and after as full an examination as could be made in the case was discharged, there being no proof of guilty intent on his part.

Mr. Ford came to West Meredith when quite a young man, cleared up a new farm, and after residing on it some years went thence to Richfield, then to that part of Davenport now included in this town, then to Franklin, to New Jersey and finally to Keokuk, where death's curtain has fallen before the panorama of a busy and a very useful life. Wherever he was, improvement was the order of the day and old things became new, whether farms, houses or ideas. On several farms he reformed the soil and the buildings, bringing beauty and order out of confusion, while into many souls he poured the needed light of uncompromising and unpopular truths, which came from a clear head and an honest heart. We first knew him in 1839, in the heat of those anti-slavery struggles which shook the country, when but few in this region could be singular enough to brave the storm and bear the banner of "immediate emancipation" boldly to the front. Dear to us forever shall be the memories of the Old Guard in Delaware and Otsego, who though few in numbers, never quailed before the hosts of oppression, or for one moment lowered that glorious flag of liberty for all! Two years ago we met our friend while on a visit from the West to the haunts and homes of his earlier life. Worn, weary and growing old though he was, his eye was still bright for his heart rejoiced that a mighty struggle had closed, with truth, principle and freedom in the ascendant, a day which neither he nor us ever expected to see, save from the Spirit-land. But now with other victories has come his triumph over Death, and the quiet peace of Heaven! (Poem included with notice.) 9/4/1867 MARRIED At Oneonta, August 27th, by Rev. H. N. Van Deusen, Mr. G. W.

Robert Parker, Esq., died at his residence in Delhi, on Tuesday morning last, at the age of 49 years. This sad event was not unexpected, as for some months his health had been failing, and for some time his life had been despaired of. Mr. Parker was all his life, prominently identified with business and public affairs in this county. Although holding but few offices, he has always been a prominent speaker a valuable and influential citizen, he added to these characteristics an amiable and generous disposition, and fine social qualities and accomplishments, which commanded the respect and esteem of his fellow citizens. Even his failings-which injured himself far more deeply than others-were such as usually accompany a large, genial, kindly nature, without a tinge of sordid aims. It would be hard to find a man in this community whose absence would be more felt, or whose death more universally regretted. He was buried on Thursday last, with Masonic honors, about 150 of the Fraternity, representing eight different lodges, being in attendance. Del. Rep. OBITUARY. Many of our readers will learn with deep regret of the death of John M. HARTWELL, A. M. His early life was passed in Worcester where his parents still reside. He pursued his preparatory studies at Charlotteville and Hartwick Seminary, and graduated at Union College in 1861. He was afterwards Principal of the New York Conference Seminary at Charlotteville, and was a favorite teacher at the Otsego County Teachers' Institute for which his services were sought for this year, but his other engagements compelled him to decline. At the time of his death he was Secretary and Treasurer of the Empire Marble Company, and Managing Agent of the Youmans Patent Car Truck Company with his office in Albany. He died Sept. 4th at South Wilbraham, Mass., where he had been making a friendly visit. His remains were brought home and interred at Charlotteville on the 7th inst. The deceased was alike successful as a teacher and a man of business, and carried to public and benevolent enterprises the same zeal and energy which made his private affairs so prosperous. Mr. Hartwell was 33 years of age. His untimely death disappoints the high hopes of a large circle of friends. MARRIED At Keokuk, Iowa, Sept 3d, by Rev. I. N. Crittenden, assisted by Rev. H. W.

The deceased was born in Lebanon, Madison Co. She was married at the age of 18 and removed to Otsego county where, beloved and respected by all, she spent the main part of her life with the husband of her youth. They removed to this place some two years ago, that they might spend the evening of their days near their three daughters, who live to mourn her loss. From a home of comfort and love, of which she was an ornament and grace, she has gone to that home of which the Savior said "I go to prepare a place for you." For some 15 years she had been a constant follower of Jesus, and she died as she had lived in the faith of the gospel of Christ. As a wife and Christian mother, she was loving and faithful. Peculiarly truthful, earnest and active, she was beloved as a neighbor and friend. She was one of the few who carry the freshness of youth through the duties of years into the very evening of life, and we believe the benediction of God rests on her in her departure. Mary L. ROE, of Franklin, died in Esperance, aged 26. At the age of fourteen she was converted to God, and soon after united with the M. E. Church of which she remained a true and consistent member till death transferred her to the Church triumphant. Her death, though sudden, was not altogether unlooked for, as she had been suffering for several months under a disease which, in its incipiency, was pronounced incurable by her physician.- She received the sad announcement with Christian fortitude, assuring her friends that she was "ready at any hour." Unconscious in her last moments, she left no dying testimony. Her life, so fully consecrated to God, affords sufficient evidence to her friends and Church associates that her spirit is numbered with the redeemed before the throne. In Cooperstown, on the 7th inst., of an apoplectic attack, Mrs. Emily, wife of John J. SHORT, aged 49 years. In Cherry Valley, 24th ult., Col. Geo. W. WHITE, aged 59 years.

Paper Date - YEAR 1868
1/1/1868 OBITUARY.- In Franklin, Dec. 7th, Henrietta, wife of Rev. J. J. HOUGH, aged 29 years. On a clear, calm, cloudless Sabbath morning, came the sad news to the people of her husband's charge, as they gathered together for their usual services, that she was dying! Suddenly smitten down, she was passing away from earthly scenes, unconscious of all around her, of the anguish of her chosen companion; of the tears and sorrow of the friends who gathered around her dying bed. Seldom has the sound of the tolling bell brought such sadness to the community, as when its solemn notes carried the sad truth to many waiting, anxious hearts, that her spirit had passed away from all earthly scenes. Our Sabbath closed in clouds and storm; in tears and grief-but for her-oh blessed beginning of the bright Sabbath above, the tearless rest of Heaven! A devoted wife, a loving daughter and sister, a sympathizing friend, and earnest Sabbath School teacher, gentle, lovely, and accomplished, with a life of love and usefulness, opened wide before her, she been called thus early away-from the many hearts-which loved her,-and we tearfully yield her to a higher love than ours. Rest thee, dear friend in thy distant grave. Brief was thy stay among us, but long and lovingly will linger with us, tender memories of thy gentle goodness. Hushed forever on earth are the sweet strains of music so often heard in thy dear companionship-but we sweetly trust, that in the glad resurrection morning the hands which we folded to the rest of the grave, will strike the golden harp above, and the voice so sweetly attuned to hymns below will swell the notes of everlasting praise, with those who have most loved thee on earth, in the home above, within the pearly gates. John HARRINGTON, an employe of the Vermont Central Railroad, was run over and killed at the Burlington depot on Saturday night. RAILROAD ACCIDENT.- Rudolph SAWYER, a well known brakeman on the night freight of the Albany and Susquehanna Railroad, was instantly killed on Friday night last at Central Bridge. It is supposed that in getting down from the top of a freight car he slipped and fell upon the tracks between the cars. He was not missed until the train reached Cobleskill, when on search being made his body, terribly mangled, was found near the former station. Sawyer was a native of Switzerland and a kindly, well deposed man. He leaves a wife and child residing in Albany. MARRIED At the residence of John PARDOE, Dec. 24th, by Rev. R. W. Peebles, Walter J.

Much of his time and abilities have been given to the poor, without charge, and as cheerfully as most men work for money.

Where now stands the fruitful orchards and cultivated fields, his manly arm wielded the axe, tottering to the earth the majestic pines, giving place to civilization where there were dense forests, haunted by prowling wolves; and in that spot he sought a home. He ever proved himself a good citizen, a kind neighbor, upright in all his dealings. His reasoning faculties were so unimpaired by age, that to the last, he could well defend the cause of the poor down- trodded ones. The needy well could say, in him I found a generous friend.

Died-At Milford, Oct. 4th, of typhoid fever after an illness of ten days, Francis Allison BARNARD, eldest son of the late Dea. Moses Barnard, aged 31 years. This is the sixth death in this family within seven years, and the third brother within a year-only four children of the eight, two sons and two daughters, survive.- Mr. F. A. Barnard united with the Presbyterian Church in this place at the early age of 16 years, and during the last winter was zealously engaged in the meetings of the late revival in the vicinity of his residence, exhibiting a characteristic interest for the salvation of souls, especially his near friends, and had the joy of seeing several of of them brought in the fold of Christ. He was genial in his disposition, and had been trained in a hospitable home, where the fevours of a christian friendship enlivened every scene. After the death of his parents, he purchased the homestead where he was born and where he rekindled the fires of christian devotion on the same altar at which his fathers worshipped. We had hoped that he would have been spared to have filled the position of his late lamented father in the community, and in the church where he was a ruling elder for 35 years, but God has called him to a higher and happier one. He was a member of the Delaware Literary Institute, between two and three years, and of the Waterburian Society. He was married Sept. 30, 1863 to Miss Anna E. Sweet of Unadilla, who was also a member of the Institute, at the same time, who is now bereft of a kind husband, the church of consistent member and the community of a valuable citizen. Amicus.

(Poem included with notice.) 11/25/1868 SHOCKING MURDER AT WEST DAVENPORT! Mrs. E. B. FERO, Killed! The Murderer Escapes with $300 On Monday night, 23d inst., a burgular entered the house of Elisha B. Fero, Esq., by a false key, and entering the bedroom was standing at the bedside of Mr. Fero and wife. He held a revolver at the head of Fero, while searching for money under his pillow. The latter threw up his hand and seized the pistol which in the struggle was fired, the shot taking effect in the head of Mrs. Fero, killing her instantly. Fero retained his hold of the murderer and was dragged into the sitting-room where a severe struggle ensued, of which his person bears the marks. The murderer escaped, having secured the pocket book of Mr. Fero, containing about $300, and as yet no trace of him has been found. There is much excitement in that village over this cold blooded atrocity, and the people will used every effort in their power to trace out the murderer and avenge, as far as the laws can reach, the slaying of a noble woman. A Coroner's inquest will be held to-day, (Tuesday). The funeral of Mrs. Fero will be attended on Thursday.
