The Wilson Colwell Post and the John Flynn Post of the Grand Army of the Republic of this city escorted the remains to Oakwood Cemetery, a guard of honor from the Wilson Colwell Post, with arms reversed, twelve in number, attending the hearse. The cortage was quite long, and it was sometime before the cemetery was reached. Brief burial exercises took place at the grave, and the guard of honor fired a salute over their comrade's last resting place. He was Second Lieutenant of Company F, Twelfth Wisconsin Infantry, enlisting October 1st, 1861 and serving until January 2nd, 1861, and at the time of his death was 41 years of age.

LAID TO REST.-

Last Saturday afternoon all that was mortal of the late Robert Jones was consigned to their last resting place in the "silent city of the dead," there to remain Until the mortal shall be clothed with the immortal, the new and better life shall begin.

The funeral services were held in the Episcopal church and were conducted, in the absence of the rector, by his assistant Mr. Joseph Moran, who read the beautiful burial service of that church in a very impressive and feeling manner. The singing, which was provided by several lady acquaintances of the deceased, was exceedingly appropriate and affecting. The following gentlemen all of whom were friends of the departed, acted as pall-bearers: Mayor W. H Young, Wm. Brunquest, Thomas Gilkey, H. M. Royce, T. B. Goodrich, and B. G. Grunert.

The church was filled with the friends of the deceased, who went to pay the last sad rites of respect to one, whom many of them had known for over a quarter of a century.

Mr. Jones left a wife and seven children, only two of whom have grown to man and womanhood. During the long and painful sickness of the deceased, Drs. Colernan and Moriarty were constant and unremitting in their attentions; could not have been more so had he been a brother. Their services were gratuitous, but their reward will be sure.
