DIED At Milford Centre, Dec. 26, Deacon R. B. MORRIS, in the 67th year of his age. Here he was born April 3d, 1811. Here he lived and died. For thirty-five years he had been a faithful and highly esteemed member of the Baptist church, and for 33 years had served it as deacon. His generosity and activity in obtaining and building up the property owned by the church, his influence and support in all the affairs of Christ's kingdom and regular attendance upon the services of God's house; these and like characteristics with many pleasant incidents of his old friends will gratefully recall. Of the life and character of our departed brother, it is not easy to speak too highly. He was looked upon by the young as the model man of the whole community and was very highly respected by his neighbors and by his friends everywhere. He was a successful farmer, and a man of great energy. Honored and almost idolized by his family, his loss to them is beyond the power of words to express. After a long and painful illness which he bore with christian patience, surrounded by his friends and family, he fell asleep. "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die." So he lives. He also "lives in Christ" awaiting the glorious resurrection. There may those who knew and loved him here meet both him and his Lord. His Pastor. -I desire in this manner to cordially thank my many friends who have during the illness of my late husband shown numerous courtesies and done much to render our loss the less grievous.

Vision, on the 19th day of January, 1878, in the 53rd year of her age. Mr. and Mrs. Marvin left their pleasant home a few weeks ago to visit friends in Connecticut and Georgia, and on their return from the South stopped at Mount Vision, intending to make their relatives at that place a short visit. The sudden change of climate from the mild Georgia winter to that of our own proved too much for a naturally frail constitution. Pneumonia, the foe that carries away so many of our friends, assailed her, and after nine days' weary battle she sank beneath his power. Patient and cheerful, without a murmur of complaint, she endured all; and when the summons came, calmly departed for that world which lies beyond our mortal vision. Rev. A. J. Cook, pastor of the M. E. church at Mt. Vision, conducted the funeral services at the house of Silas Robinson on the 21st inst., after which Mr. Marvin took all that remained of his loved wife to her former home for burial. May God bless and strength him for burial. May God bless and strengthen him in this hour of sorrow and darkness. 2/15/1878 GOLDEN WEDDING. The first Golden Wedding ever observed in Oneonta, as far as we can hear, was that of Mr. and Mrs. John M. WATKINS, celebrated at their pleasant home on River street Monday evening. Mr. Watkins, was born in this town 78 years ago. He married Julia Ann McDONALD, and no two lives have blended more pleasantly than theirs. Constant in companionship, never being separated for a longer time than two or three weeks, their devotion has seemed to be of the increasing kind that ought to characterize the lives of all married people. At the golden wedding were congregated simply immediate relatives of the family and their older associates, among them four persons who attended the marriage. A social company was present, and everything passed off as merry as a marriage-bell. The emblematic decorations consisted of a monogram- the initials "W" and "M" in gold and the dates "1828" and "1878", also in gold. Supper was served about 10 o'clock, preceded by an impressive prayer by Rev. H. H. Allen, and all singing "Praise God from whom all blessings flow," etc. "It was a pleasant sight to see." Many elegant and costly presents were made. Kindly worded regrets and congratulations were received from C. P. HUNTINGTON, Vice-President of the Central Pacific RR, Gen. GATES, Editor FAIRCHILD and many others; also telegrams from Mrs. CREQUE and Carlton WATKINS, of California. 2/22/1878 MARRIED In Oneonta, Feb. 20, by Rev. W. S. Winans, Lewis C. MILLARD and Miss Anna E. BROCKWAY. In Mt. Vision, Feb. 21, O. J. WILSEY, M. D., of Otego, and Miss Anna FIELD.

Jenks, and daughter of Chancellor and Eunice BEACH, aged 21 years and 20 days. The deceased was gifted with qualities that inspired love and friendship, was sincere in her attachments, cheerful in countenance and delicate in thought and speech. Sorrow at her loss is soothed by the thought that the loved and departed one has awakened from the sleep of death into that joy which passeth understanding. The family have the earnest sympathy of many friends in their bereavement. A friend hands us the following line for publication: (Poem) 3/1/1878 MORRIS.- Major Hezekiah GOODRICH died at the residence of his son, in this town, on Wednesday of last week.

BENNETT, of Oxford, aged 71 years. The Bainbridge Republican says of the late Mrs. Jacob BIXBY, who had many friends in this place, and died on the 30th inst.: Mrs. Bixby for the past four years has been a great sufferer, caused from an accident which happened to her while returning from Quarterly Conference at North Afton, July 19, 1874. Although Mrs. Bixby fully recovered her senses(?), she never was able to do her household duties, but was confined continually to her bed. From the first her body was wholly paralyzed from her neck down, but in time she was able to move her arms and hands, and could, by placing her food before her help herself, but she never recovered farther, and to the time of her death was helpless. All who were acquainted with Mrs. Bixby, knew her to be a lady of excellent qualities, and of a mild and very friendly disposition. She bore here (sic) trial with that patience and submission due to a saint and never murmured on account of her sad fate. She was a firm believer in prayer, and often has said that it was her only hope. During the last few weeks of her life she was a great sufferer. Death was a happy relief. As such she welcomed it. While deeply mourning her loss, those that know how great was her sufferings, recognize that their loss is her gain. With peculiar force it could be said of her that to depart and be with Christ was far better. Mrs. Bixby was born at North New Berlin, Chenango county, N. Y., Dec. 25, 1824. Her maiden name was Artemissa DARLING. On the 25 of December, 1849, she was married to Jacob Bixby, in West Davenport, and was a sister of Mr. Bixby's first wife. 4/19/1878 FIRE AND DEATH. A House Burned and a Fireman Killed- Coronor's Examination-The Funeral. THE FIRE. At three o'clock Monday morning an alarm was sounded from the railroad shops, and promptly thereafter from the Methodist church bell, indicating a fire in the First Ward. A house on Miller st., deeded by Rev. J. L. WELLS to Syracuse University, and to be sold on mortgage that same day afternoon, was burning. The three companies of the Fire Department were promptly on hand. There being no water available, the Steamer and Hose were useless. The Hook and Ladder Company had an opportunity to save a building fourteen feet distant, and they did it with success. Great credit is due the Company and all who assisted them. The burning building had been empty for a long time, and was entirely consumed. No insurance. Everything was cleared from the next house, occupied by Warren H. BROWNSON. This property, sold under mortgage Monday, was insured for $1,000. The fire was of incendiary origin without any kind of doubt. A FIREMAN KILLED. Harrison WHITE, a member of the Steamer Company, lives quite a distance from the thickly inhabited portion of the village. He did not reach the engine house in time to start with his company, and with several others rode down to Fonda Avenue with L. A. BISSELL, where the Steamer was overtaken. Here Mr. White jumped from the wagon, and received wounds which caused his death. As there are various reports and theories in relation to the accident, the nature of injuries, etc., we publish the Coronor's Inquisition and Examination, kindly furnished by C. L. WILBER, Esq., who received the testimony: INQUISITION. State of New-York, County of Otsego, SS. Inquisition taken at Oneonta in the County of Otsego, N. Y., on the 15th day of April, 1878, before A.

ROBERTS, Parker WILSON, Samuel BLIGH, Munro WESTCOTT, good and lawful men of the said County, who, being duly summoned and sworn to inquire into all the circumstances attending the death of the said Harrison White, and by whom the same was produced, and in what manner and when and where the said Harrison White came to his death, do say upon their oaths aforesaid, that the deceased came to his death on the morning of the 15th day of April, 1878, at the village of Oneonta, in said County, by attempting to jump from a wagon in rapid motion, and accidentally falling thereunder, and the wheels passing over his body, by means of which he was so bruised and injured that thereafter-to wit, about four hours after the accident-he died. And so the said jurors say that the deceased came to his death by accident, and without blame attaching to any person or persons.

Clara only daughter of Lemuel and Lydia F. ACKLEY and wife of Tiffany T. KENYON, died May 15th, 1878, aged eighteen years and twenty-seven days. She was always frail, yet the struggle between life and death was long and her sufferings great. If the untiring attention of loving friends could have lured her back to health, her presence would still enliven the home now made desolate by her departure. She was her mother's comfort and the joy and pride of her father and brothers; and yet one came with a love so pure and strong, that he took foremost place in her affections. But the bride of five short months is taken from his embrace; and early in life he drinks of that bitter cup of whose dregs none know but those who have been called to drain it. The funeral services were attended by Rev. A. J. Cook, at the Baptist church, which was filled with sympathizing friends, and surrounded by the freshness and beauty of this springtime; with tears they laid that precious body away to rest. The years may come and go, and life's duties press heavily upon those left behind, but in their hearts will be a place ever sacred to the memory of the gentle loving one, who has gone from their midst.

Another of the pioneers of Oneonta has died. During the night of June 24th, the spirit of Timothy Sabin took its flight, just how and at what hour, God only knows. The evening before he was in usual health, and Tuesday morning dead. From the appearance of his features and body when discovered, it was evident that he died without a struggle. His lite went out, yielding to the circumstances of old age and a finished course. Timothy Sabin was born at Pauling, Dutchess co., in 1803, and was consequently 75 years of age. In 1822 he married Willmet VAN DYKE, of Mayfield, in this State. She died May 17, 1827, aged 22 years. February 14th, 1828, he married Harriet MANN, daughter of Daniel Mann, of Franklin. She died June 15, 1865. During his early residence here, and for a few years in Davenport, Mr. Sabin pursued the avocations of farmer, clerk, hotel-keeper and merchant. In 1842 he retired from the mercantile business, and from that date until about 1875, conducted an extensive commission business, his son, Egbert R., being a partner during considerable of the time. Mr. Sabin built the store now owned by George REYNOLDS, and one or two houses. He was more instrumental than any other Oneonta person, excepting only the late E. R. FORD, in promoting the Albany and Susquehanna Railroad project. Although never holding any official connection, his energy, good management and encouragment had much to do with its building. Mr. Sabin was converted under the ministrations of Rev. Augustus LITTLEJOHN, became a member of the Presbyterian church in 1833, and was made an Elder two years later, which position he held until some eighteen months ago, at that time, of choice, becoming merely honorary. In church, Mr. Sabin has been a zealous worker, and as a Christian gentleman, prayerful and constant in religious duties. In the esteem of his neighbors and fellow-townsmen, Timothy Sabin might properly have been regarded our first citizen. During the years of his strength, he was with the first in everything that pertained to the welfare and prosperity of his town. Without a particle of selfishness, he devoted time, work and money to promote public enterprises, and Oneonta is the better and more prosperous because of his living in it. His exalted Christian character, his charity, his kindness, his devotion to all things good, made him a man to be missed by those who cherish Christianity, a high condition of public morality, and good order. His name will ever be associated with the noblest of our dead, and it is strange indeed if there are not those yet living who are endeavoring to emulate his virtues, and are pressing on to a better life because of his example. (Timothy Sabin is buried in Riverside Cem. in Oneonta) 6/28/1878 MARRIED In Unadilla, at the M. E. parsonage, June 20th, by Rev. J. W. Mevis, James O. RICHARDSON and Miss Mary RICHARDSON, both of Oneonta. In Utica, at Calvary church, June 19th, by the Rev. Dr. Goodrich, Major T. D. EVERTS, formerly of Oneonta, and conductor on the A. & S. R.

Twice last week our people were shocked by the sudden deaths of prominent citizens. But two days after the burial of the venerable Timothy SABIN, the death of Rev. E. Vine Wales occurred, Friday, the 28th ult. He had been in unusually poor health for a few days previous, but was about the house the day of his decease, which resulted from paralysis of the throat. He had been a great sufferer from this disease for several years, and death must have come to him as a sweet boon from Heaven. Mr. Wales was born in Plymouth, Chenango co., in 1817, and was therefore 61 years of age. He was graduated from Oneida Institute, at Whitesboro, and the Theological Seminary at Auburn. In 1844 he entered the Presbyterian ministry, his first charge being at Laurens. He afterwards preached in Livingston co. and the Mohawk Valley, and finally returned to Laurens where he remained a few years, moving in 1865 to this place. He still supplied the Laurens church for a time, and in 1872 retired wholly from active service. In 1849 he married Helen M. COMSTOCK, a daughter of the late Gen. Comstock, of Laurens, who with one daughter, Mrs. C. E. FORD, survives him. In 1863 Mr. Wales's only son, E. Vine Wales, Jr., died, and was brought here for burial. From the death of this son, Mr. Wales never recovered, and the ill health that followed was largely promoted by grief. He sunk into a serious study and investigation of the Future, reading every available work concerning that problem to mortals still unsolved -------------the more he questioned and considered, never doubting God, but all the time trying to satisfy an unquenchable longing to ascertain the exact and true condition of those who inhabit Heaven. Just two weeks before his burial, Mr. Wales was conversing with Rev. J. T. Wright concerning the Future, and said that the Bible was a source of consolation to him, but he desired to know of his boy's welfare, his occupation, what he was doing. Mr. Wales believed in a future of activity, and that the inhabitants of Heaven are not mere idle angels, but engaged in general pursuits. They are freed from temptation, sin and anxiety, but a state of progress is maintained, thought he. Since 1845 Mr. Wales had kept a record of temperature, and from that date not a day has passed but the items have been recorded. His daily reports to this paper have been valuable and closely watched by many people. Since 1860 he had kept a journal of personal and general interest. One singular feature was that he recorded matters of thought, concerning his opinions upon public subjects, religious faith, etc. He frequently visited the grave of his son, the record tells just how often, and with each entry are noted impressions suggested by the visitation. About 1870 Mr. Wales's name was proposed as a Professor of Hebrew at Auburn Theological Seminary, and at the meeting of the Trustees he came within two votes of being elected to that position. This action was unsolicited by Mr. Wales, and unknown to him until several days after the election. As a learned man, we doubt if there is his equal in Otsego county. As a preacher, he was noted for writing sermons of choice diction, profound thought, and sound theology. The funeral was attended Sabbath afternoon, Rev. T. J. Wright officiating, who referred to his long acquaintance with Mr. Wales, and his regard for the ability and piety of the deceased. Ere this, if one can believe God's word, what Mr. Wales failed here to understand has now been made plain. While mourning exists here, there is rejoicing in the spirit land. (Rev. E. Vine Wales is buried in Riverside Cemetery.) THE OTSEGO COUNTY TRAGEDY. At Plainfield Center, Tuesday, Catharine M. RICHARDS, a fourteen-year-old daughter of William C. Richards was killed by a bull. The animal was fastened in the barn, and the little girl went into the barn for the purpose of feeding the calves. At milking time, when the hired man went to the barn, he found the little girl on the floor dead, and the bull at large in the lot. -Herald and Democrat last week. Next day after the death of Miss Richards, it became evident that she was not killed by a bull, but by a farm hand named W. C. BUELL. The Utica Herald of Saturday said: The theory of the tragedy, as far as it can be formed, is this: While at work in the field Buell remembered that Catharine's parents were away. He left the field, hoping to meet her by chance and gratify his lust. He found Catharine in the cheese house, which he entered for the ostensible purpose of changing his boots. In the cheese house were kept old clothes, harness, etc., and there the girl went several times a day to play with the kittens. It is believed that Buell slipped quietly up behind the girl, threw a hold-back strap (about three feet long and seven- eighths of a inch wide) over her head and tightened it quickly to prevent her from crying out while he attempted to ravish her. He probably did not intend to kill. The strap was pulled too tightly probably in the excitement or by the powerful girl's struggles, and she undoubtedly died of strangulation combined with fright. Dismayed by the result of his devilish intent, Buell, who is quick witted although apparently uneducated, immediately set about the task of concealing his crime, and succeeded too well, for a time, for the purposes of justice. He remembered that within fifteen feet, in the cow-barn, there was a young bull. It was but the work of a moment to grasp the body of the girl in his arms, cross the alley, enter the cow-barn, release the bull from the stanchion, drive him into the yard, close the manure door, place the body of the girl on the spot where the bull stood, mangle her dead face with the edge of the milking stool, put the stool into the box with the strap, which had already shut out her life, and then hastened back to the hop-yard, where he rejoined BOWEN and remained there until the supper horn was blown at 5 p. m., the time Bowen and he found the body. The finding of the body with an ugly gash in her face and dark spots on her bosom, in the cow-barn, while the bull was loose in the yard, naturally led to the conclusion that she had been gored to death by the bull. The mark on the left shoulder, supposed to be by the bull's horn, was afterwards found to be the imprint of a thumbnail, probably made by the left hand as Buell held the girl while he was tightening the strap. Buell-if he committed the crime, was too careful in his arrangement of the body of his victim to sustain the theory of accidental death. The girl laid straight as if the body had been arranged by an undertaker, with her clothes in their natural position, and her arms carefully placed by her sides. Buell is known to have been an ardent admirer of Catharine's, but she did not like him. She teased him frequently by saying she liked other young men better than himself, and this caused him to be blue and grim. On Friday, the father of the girl made compliant before Esquire Williamson, of Plainfield, against Buell, on suspicion of the murder, and obtained a warrant for his arrest. The examination was commenced at Unadilla Forks, Saturday, District-Attorney Benedict in charge of the case for the people. Dr. Huntley testified that there is a reasonable doubt that human agency had anything to do with the girl's death. Mrs. Palmer testified that the deceased, when found, was badly besmeared with stable filth. Jas. B. CLARK, President of the First National Bank of Oxford, died Sunday afternoon. He was a very welthy (sick) and much respected citizen. Ex-Judge Samuel B. GARVIN, died in New York Friday, aged 67 years. He was born in Butternuts, this county, lived there until 18 years old, and then commenced the study of law at Norwich, where he married a daughter of the late Dr. Henry MITCHELL. 7/12/1878 MARRIED In Oneonta, July 4, by Seymour Scott, Esq., Wm.

BUELL for the murder of Miss RICHARDS was concluded at Unadilla Forks Tuesday about noon. The prisoner was held by Justice Williamson to answer to the charge of murder before the grand jury of Otsego county, which meets on September 16th, before Justice Follett. Commitment papers were then made out and given to Constable Maine who took young Buell in charge and placed him in jail at Cooperstown. The verdict rendered Tuesday by the coroner's Jury was in the usual form and verbiage, the jurors saying upon their oath "that Myron A. Buell, of the town of Plainfield, in the county of Otsego, did on the 25th day of June, 1878, at the said town of Plainfield, feloniously and with malice aforethought make an assault and the said Myron A. Buell placed a certain cord or rope about the neck of the said Catharine M. Richards, and with a certain hard substance, to wit a milk stool, willfully, maliciously and with malice aforethought inflicted a mortal wound upon the head of the said Catharine M. Richards, and of which choking, strangling and suffocating the said Catharine M. Richards then and there instantly died. The dual investigation which has had to do with this case resulted in something of a competition between the town officers and the general county officers for the distinction of escorting the prisoner to jail. District Attorney Benedict, who arrived on the ground on Monday, took charge of the coroner's concluding session at Plainfield Center, yesterday morning. Sheriff Barton of Cooperstown, and a deputy sheriff were also present. It was claimed by Mr. Benedict that he expected to have the prisoner held at Unadilla Forks till the arrival of the coroner's jury, when he would place him on the stand. It was then Mr. Benedict's intention to have the justice discharge Buell in order that he might be arrested on the finding of the coroner's jury. But the justice's court adjourned, the prisoner was held and Constable Maine was making all possible speed with him toward Cooperstown. It is claimed for the local officers and for Counselor Aylesworth that they have done all the hard work of securing the murderer ought to have all the credit that attaches to his safe delivery within the walls of the county jail. H. M. AYLESWORTH, Esq., who as acted for the People in this aggravated case, gives as a theory for the crime substantially and briefly thus: Young Buell more than a year ago became greatly interested in the young girl with whom he daily associated on the farm. He attended strictly to business, thereby possibly seeking to gain the favorable consideration of the girl's parents. Not being sustained by a proper understanding of the relation which he sustained to the young girl, he sought opportunities for making advances to her which she resented. Finally she discarded him altogether, and this instead of operating as a wholesome reproach for his conduct, angered him. He then coolly determined to ruin what he believed he should not be able to win, and on the fatal Tuesday, just a week prior to his lodgement in jail, he seized the opportunity offered by the absence of the girl's parents to destroy her. The theory is that he went into the cow barn, unloosed one of the calves, waited for the girl to come out of the house, called her in to help secure the calf, threw the little rope or cord with which the calf had been tied, around her neck, and after choking her some time and still meeting resistance, he struck her down with the milk stool. Finding he had killed his victim he attempted to cover up his track in the manner heretofore related. The double mark around the neck was made, it is claimed, by the cord being thrown around twice or double. VICINITY HERALDINGS. Not a single death has occurred in Roxbury during the past year. Henry LUCE, a prominent citizen of Elmira, died Saturday. He was born in 1794, and lived in Cooperstown until 1833. A little daughter of Dr. POWELL, of Argusville, Schoharie-co., was accidently drowned in a mill pond last Saturday. She was five years old. Andrew CASEY, a resident of Cobleskill, while intoxicated, was run over by a train of cars on the night of the fourth, at that place, and died on Saturday from the effects of his injuries. His right leg was cut off below the knee, by the car wheels, and the left side of his skull fractured by striking the end of a tie. 7/19/1878 MARRIED At West Davenport, July 15, by Rev. H.

The day was pleasant, and enough air was stirring to compromise the effects of the heat. About 500 people were present. The oldest member of the family there was Mrs. Patta TALMADGE, aged 83, and the youngest, Russell C. BURNSIDE, two years old. Of the thousand persons who claim kindred, only one has died during the year. It shows a pretty well organized family that this fact could be known. The Schenevus band furnished music. Gen. Burnside read the following letter from his friend of many years, Hon. Horatio SEYMOUR: Utica, August 7th, 1878. My Dear Sir:-I am gratified with your invitation to attend your family gathering on the 14th inst. I wish I could accept it; but it is not in my power to do so. Such meetings are of great value, as they keep alive the sentiments of regard and affection which make the great pleasure and interests of life. I should be glad to meet your relatives. I hope they are numerous. From what I know of the family there cannot be too many of them. I hope you will express to them my sentiments of respect, and hopes for their happiness on that and all other occasions. I am truly yours, Horatio Seymour. Gen. S. S. Burnside. J. Stanley BROWNE, of Schenevus, and Rev. William BURNSIDE, of Covington, made interesting remarks, after which President S.S. Burnside introduced Willard E. YAGER, of Oneonta, as orator of the day. As the complete history of the Burnside family has been the subject of addresses already delivered, Mr. Yager hit upon the happy idea of considering the life and character of an early ancestor, Sir William WALLACE, a Scottish patriot who died in 1305. Probably no other of the clan has ever been so famous in history as he, and we are not surprised that Mr. Yager, with a good degree of pride, selected the subject that he did. In historical facts the address is valuable; it is elegant in composition, and a pleasant document to read. Mr. Yager's delivery is good. He made a favorable impression upon all who heard him. He said: -------- DIDN'T GET REST. VICINITY HERALDINGS.- Mrs. Harry RADEKER, of Colchester, was found dead in the milking yard where she had gone to milk cows. Gabriel C. TURNER recently married a Miss HOOD, at Hancock. He is now in the Delhi jail, just as if having two wives is not punishment enough of itself. Saturday last Jehiel BEACH, aged 70 years, of Walton, was found dead in a lot where he had gone to repair fence. He was a son of Wm. Beach, a grandson of Timothy Beach, who settled in Sidney in 1789, and an uncle of Asa STRONG of this village. Last Saturday Michael GALER of Middlefield, aged about 73 years, died suddenly while upon a load of hay. On Sunday morning following, Mrs. Galer, the wife of the deceased, who had been sick for some time also died. They were both buried on Monday. MURDER AND SUICIDE AT UNADILLA.- A Man Shoots Himself and his Wife.- From our own correspondent. Unadilla, August 12, 1878. The past week has been one of great excitement in our usually quiet village, and, perhaps, with the exception of the sad GOODRICH and MOREHOUSE drowning affair, by which four persons lost their lives in the Susquehanna river at this place, some two years ago, no event in the history of the town has so startled our citizens as the report that ran through our streets like wildfire last Thursday evening a little after eight o'clock, that Marshall GRANNIS had just murdered his wife, and then finished the tragedy by shooting himself. Upon hearing the report, your correspondent hurried to the scene, found Grannis dead and his wife just breathing her last. As there are many reports flying around, some of which had found their into the papers, I will endeavor, briefly as possible, to lay before your readers a true history of the whole affair. Grannis has been a resident to this town from a child, and has always been a bad reputation. He has been in the habit of drinking intoxicating liquors to excess for many years, and when under its influence was of a quarrelsome disposition. Some few months since, he was arrested on a charge of "drunkenness and disorderly conduct," and at the time made threats of dire vengeance against Officer TUPPER who arrested him. On this charge he was sent to Cooperstown jail, and on his return, it being about the time the Murphy temperance movement was flourishing here, he become a temporary convert to that doctrine and for a few weeks wore the blue ribbon and religiously adhered to his pledge. His career as a temperance man soon gave way to his appetite for drink, and his old habits returned, seemingly aggravated by his temporary abstinence. It appears that in this domestic affairs like all others, he was arbitrary and brutal, often abusing his wife with blows and kicks, so that on several occasions they had separated, had "made up," and with many promises on his part, had been united again. The immediate cause of the last separation which culminated in this fearful tragedy of Thursday evening was his discovering in his house a young man or boy by the name of WARNER, under what appeared to him very suspicious circumstances. A fearful row immediately ensued, which ended in his turning his wife out of doors and forbidding her return. Mrs. Grannis, after a few days, hired rooms in E. C. BELKNAP's building and commenced housekeeping with her two youngest children, a boy and girl. One older boy is living with an uncle on the Unadilla River road, and another in Rochester at the House of Refuge, having been sent there about a year ago for being engaged in a burglary in this village. On the day of the tragedy, Mrs. Grannis had been working for Mr. MULFORD at Sidney Plains. On her return in the evening, she met her husband in the street opposite Mattice's Hotel, and had a short conversation. Grannis asking her to come down to C. D. Fellows & Son's store within half an hour and he would make her a present. She promised to meet him there, and immediately passed on to her rooms in the Belknap building, near where the conversation took place. A few moments later she came down stairs accompanied by her little girl and immediately proceeded to Fellows & Son's store where she had been but a few moments when Grannis came in, asked the little girl to "kiss papa" and stooped down for the purpose, and upon rising, thrust his revolver, a small Empire, twenty-two calibre, into his wife's face and fired, the ball entering her right eye and burying itself in the brain. Geo. B. FELLOWS, the only other person in the store, being behind the counter at the time, started toward Grannis saying, "Marsh, what are you doing?" when Grannis turned toward him and Mr. Fellows wisely thinking "discretion the better part of valor," started for the door to summon assistance, but before he could get outside another report followed, and Grannis fell to the floor with a bullet in his right temple, which resulted in almost instant death. A number of persons immediately rushed in, and found the murderer and suicide with his victim stretched on the door (sic?) welting in their own blood, and presenting as ghastly and frightful a spectacle as one often sees in a rural village like Unadilla in an ordinary life time. The two were buried at five o'clock Friday afternoon in the Episcopal church cemetery. It is thought by many that Grannis had designs upon other persons beside his wife, as he had been making threats in a vague manner against several others, among whom was Major C. D. FELLOWS, who had befriended his wife since the separation by assisting her in obtaining the means to commence housekeeping, but fortunately Mr. Fellows was not in the store at the time, which perhaps saved a third victim from being added to the number. As to the numerous versions of the causes that led to this affair, we will make no comments, but will "Think of her mournfully, Gently and humanly, Not of the stains of her; All that remains of her Now, is pure, womanly." DR. REYNOLDS AND THE UNADILLA MURDER.- A New-York Herald correspondent, who is a disgrace to decent journalism, and would be no credit to the Day's Doings and Police Gazette, writes a communication to that paper concerning the Unadilla murder and suicide. He says Coroner A. D. REYNOLDS, of this village, was not allowed by Supervisor S. G. CONE and Major C. D. FELLOWS to hold an inquest, for the reason that said Reynolds was intoxicated at the time. It is not necessary for us to say that D. Reynolds, was NOT intoxicated. The statement is a base and willful lie. Furthermore, concerning the Herald canard, we feel perfectly confident that neither Mr. Cone or Mr. Fellows ever said to the Herald man or any other person that Dr. Reynolds was drunk. Both have known the doctor for many years, to our knowledge, and are perfectly aware of his temperate habits. There has been more or less said about Messrs. Cone, Fellows and other citizens of Unadilla NOT ALLOWING the Coroner to hold an inquest. These gentlemen knew perfectly well that he had an unquestioned right to hold an inquest if the circumstances seemed to require. There being no such conditions, no inquest was held, and the matter is well and satisfactorily understood between the Coroner and prominent citizens of Unadilla. We regret that so good a paper as the Albany Journal has accepted the Herald version. We shall look for a contradiction from that journal. Gilbertsville.- August 19, 1878. The remains of Dr. CAULKINS of this town, and a Mr. HOPKINS of Morris, were interred in the old burying ground Sunday.

At West Laurens, Aug. 20, Lacelle WEATHERLY, aged 21 years. (see another notice 8/30/1878) In Oneonta, Aug. 20, Mrs. Peter GILE. Funeral yesterday. 8/30/1878 And now I wish to notice the marriage of one of Lauren's fairest and best daughters. Miss Lucy HURLBERT was this morning married to Edward LOPER, of Humboldt, Nb. Rev. W. H. Humphrey, of South Valley, performing the ceremony. They leave town this morning for New-York and the sea shore, to be gone for a few weeks. Will return to Laurens before leaving for their western home at Humboldt. Mrs. Loper has the best wishes of her Laurens friends. We are very sorry to have one leave us who has done such good service here. That she may enjoy a long and happy life is the wish of the OUTLOOKER. The HATHAWAYs enjoyed a family picnic Saturday afternoon, August 17th, in the Pool woods, one mile north of the village of Laurens. The COMSTOCKs, DREWs, FRINKs CARRs, FITCHes and RICHMONDs of Laurens, HATHAWAYs and D. H. MEAD of Oneonta, represented the different branches of the numerous family. A goodly number of outsiders from the town helped to make up a respectable-sized gathering, and contributed to the enjoyment of the occasion. A sumptuous repast was spread upon the tables beneath the forest trees. To this and a huge bologna sausage, which was the private property of L. P. Richmond, the picnicers did ample justice. As the bologna gradually disappeared, Len's countenance gradually fell till it became nearly as long as the original bologna. Mead, of Oneonta, appeared at a late hour, but in time to partake of some of Mrs. Drew's Dutch cheese, which was made for his special benefit. He evidently made good time from Oneonta, as there were but a few hairs left on Abe MILES's spike-tailed horse, and they were pointing upwards. The party broke up about 5 p. m., all present declaring the occasion one of the pleasantest of the kind which had been enjoyed in these parts for a long time. May the family still further spread its branches, and find these gatherings worthy of repetition from year to year. PRESENT. Franklin.- Two funerals occurred on Tuesday last, that of Rutson MILLER at North Franklin, and that of Ashael FOOTE, of Otego, in this village, at the Baptist church. News was received here on Monday of the death of Mrs. Wm. KINGSLEY, at Dallas Texas, on August 20th. Mrs. K. was a daughter of Charles HAWLEY, of this village, and had only moved to Texas about a year ago. MARRIED At Pleasant Brook, Aug. 25, by Rev. M. L. Baker, George W. THOMPSON, of Cooperstown, and Maryon L. FREEMIRE, of Middleburgh. In Garrattsville, Aug. 21, by Rev. Mr. Scott, Henry MATHER of the firm of Mather Bros., and Miss Libbie ELLIOTT.

COOPER and Miss Lucia SAXTON. At the Otego House, Otego, August 22, by Rev. P. J. Burnham, Harry BARNES and Ella LORETT, of Oneonta. At the M. E. parsonage, Milford, Aug. 24, by Rev. A. B. Richardson, John T. FOX, of Milford and Alice L. HOAGLAND, of Middlefield. DIED In Bainbridge, August 22, of consumption, Lillie E. PRICE, aged 24. In Walton, Aug. 16, John BRISTOL, aged 92. The Walton Chronicle says he was probably the oldest Mason in the country having joined the brotherhood in that village in 1809. In Otego, Aug. 20, Mrs. Harvey BROWN, aged 30 years. In Sidney Plains, Aug. 23, Philip VanALSTINE aged 72 years. In Unadilla, Aug. 23, Estella M., wife of E. E. CLARK, and youngest daughter of Parmenas and Olive TRASK, aged 20 years. In North Franklin, Aug. 25, Richard R. MILLER, aged 61 years. Near Burlington Flats, Aug. 22, Mrs. Julia Ann, wife of Jonathan BRAINARD, aged 57 years. In Laurens, Aug. 19, Stephen RATHBUN, aged about 66 years. In Pittsfield, Aug. 21, Mary, wife of Joshua STEVENS, aged 43 years. In Davenport Centre, Aug. 26, Eli H. ROBERTS, aged 67 years. In Croton, Aug. 24, William PATTERSON, aged 78 years. In Cooperstown, Aug. 27, Margaret, wife of F. A. GOFFE, aged 52. In Walton, Aug. 24, Antionette GOODRICH, wife of B. McCALL, aged 63 years. On the 20th inst., Lacelle WEATHERLY, aged 21 years. This was the sad news which cast a gloom over our community on Tuesday of last week, and the deeper sorrow to settle on the minds of all. All felt it to be the death of a friend, and while it had for some days been feared, yet Hope held out the fond delusion it "might not be" that in the freshness of his years he would be spared to us "yet a little longer" so when the dread news came it was none the less felt. His life all might emulate-it leaves an influence with us who go on with the future which must tell for good through coming years of time. Faithful to every duty, he lived in a world of friends. He died without an enemy. The sympathy of the whole community is extended to the relatives of the deceased, but all feel as if the question were asked of those stricken parents, "Is it well with thee? Is it well with thy house? Is it well with thy child?" they must answer, "it is well." A Friend. Obsequies of Cutler OWEN, who was drowned at Sodus Point, August 22d, while in the heroic act of trying to save a young lady from drowning. The funeral of Cutler Owen, formerly of this place, and late of Rochester, took place at the Free Baptist church in this village on Sunday, 25th inst. Although the morning was inclement, the church at an early hour was filled to its utmost capacity. Rev. T. A. Stevens, of this place, assisted by Rev. E. C. Hodge, of Oneonta, conducted the services in an eloquent and impressive manner. The remarks to the family and friends were beautifully adapted to the occasion, and had a telling effect on all. The services at the cemetery in Mt. Vision were solemn and effecting. Prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Webster, of Mt. Vision, followed by remarks by T. A. Stevens. Among the gathered throng were many friends who expressed a desire to view the remains. The wish was granted, and as one after another looked for the last time upon that form so calm and cold in death, and thought what a noble, heroic struggle it had made for the life of a fellow being, they could but repeat "When hearts that are truly proven, like thine, are laid in the earth, Then should a wreath be woven, to tell the world their worth." The last look was taken, the casket was placed in its narrow tomb, and the mortal remains were left alone in the silent grave. Thus Death will claim its own. "Dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return," was spoken to man. None can escape the mandate of God. The young and the old must surely yield when the reaper Death shall come. 9/6/1878 MARRIED In Oneonta, Aug. 23, by Rev. Y. C. Smith, Chas. ANDERSON, of Franklin, and Jessie M. SCOBIE, of Meredith.

Y., and Ella Louise FREEMAN. The Saginaw Republican says of this marriage: "The ceremony was performed by Dr. ------, of Pennsylvania, the tutor and friend of Mr. Talmadge, who volunteered his services for the occasion. The party attendant was not large, but the occasion was enjoyed by all. A number of fine presents were made the bride, among them a bridal shawl, easy chair, silver vases, butter dish, pickle dishes, etc.; also an elegant bible and some choice volumes of books. Miss Freeman was last year a teacher in the Hoyt school, and was highly esteemed by her scholars and a large circle of friends who will wish the happy couple a long and useful companionship."

Bush, of whose death we spoke last week, reached here from Denver, Saturday noon, and were at once conveyed to the residence of Erastus WARD, the father of Mrs. Bush. The body was encased in a handsome metallic coffin, and the embalmment had preserved the naturalness of features to a very satisfactory extent. Mrs. Bush had become much prostrated from grief and anxiety during the transportation of her dead husband, and was quite overcome at receiving him home, dead. The little baby girl clapped her hands gladly at the sight of "papa," recognizing him at once, but could not appreciate his condition. During the day the body was looked at by many friends of the deceased, and arrangements were at once made by military and civil bodies for attendance at the funeral. Capt. H. G. WOOD, of Third Separate Company, issued the following order: Oneonta, N. Y., Nov. 23, 1878. I. It is the sad duty of the Captain commanding this company to announce to the members the death of our late comrade, Charles T. Bush, which occurred at Denver, Colorado, on November 16th, 1878. As a faithful member of the command, often performing his duty under great physical pain, yet always cheerfully responding to the demands made upon him, his example will always be worthy of emulation by every member of the command, none of whom are less able to perform their whole duty than he was. As a courteous and kind-hearted gentleman, his place in the company cannot easily be filled, and the memory of his excellent qualities, will remain on our minds until it shall be our turn to answer at the final roll call of life. As a mark of respect to his memory, the usual badge of mourning will be worn for thirty days. II. The members of this command, and Drum Corps, will assemble at the company armory on Tuesday, November 26th, 1878, at 1 o'clock p. m., in full dress uniform, white equipments and white gloves to attend the funeral of our late comrade, Charles T. Bush. H. G. Wood, Captain Orders similar to the above were issued by the foreman of the fire companies, and arrangements made to attend the funeral. On Tuesday, the armory was heavily draped in mourning, and the flag at the engine house was at half mast, as were other similar emblems. At 1:30 the various organizations formed at the residence of Mr. Ward led by Military Band, and accompanied the remains and friends to the Presbyterian church. At an early hour the church was filled, reserving only space for mourners and attendants. Mrs. E. R. Ford presided at the organ, Dr. Pratt, S. Brownson, Miss Brownson and Mrs. W. H. Williams composed the choir. Scripture was read by Rev. Dr. Calhoun, prayer was said by Rev. Dr. Smith, and Rev. H. H. Allen delivered the sermon. His remarks were from Deut. 32:49,50-"Get thee up into this mountain Abarim. And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people." Among other things, Mr. Allen said: History, sacred or profane, furnishes us no more touching picture than this of Moses going away by himself alone to die. For forty years he lived a life of the most intense activity. As a leader of the Lord's host, he has been continually in the midst …. DIDN'T GET REST OF MESSAGE MARRIED In Davenport, Nov. 20, by Rev.
