The machinery delivery of Thos. FLYNN at Thiensville took place last Saturday. A large amount of machinery was taken by the farmers among whom Mr. FLYNN is becoming deservedly popular as a thorough business man.
The fair last Monday was very large, the stores all doing a rushing business. A good deal of livestock changed hands. There were some good horses to be seen, but a remarkable number of creatures were also on sale.
Hilgen's Spring Park was grandly opened last Sunday. The large number of people present in the afternoon agreeably spent their time roaming through the park and listening to the concert by WEBER's band. The attendance to the dance in the evening more than fulfilled the sanguine expectations of “Uncle Fritz,” young and old putting in their appearance, and lending all their powers to promote the gayety of the affair.
Last Wednesday Bruss Bro's. had their yearly delivery of machinery. The number of machines delivered was very large and the farmers with their teams gave the north end of the city a very lively appearance. Refreshments were freely offered by the firm, and as liberally disposed of by the customers. All expressed themselves well satisfied with their purchases and the entertainment.
A large cavalcade of gypsies took their course through our city last Sunday afternoon. They presented an extremely picturesque appearance. Three large wagons, drawn by the characteristic bony horses, seemed to carry the members of the royal family for the windows and front were hung with lace curtains and the whole conveyance dressed up in the most gaudy colors.
A number of horses of remarkable angularity of appearance were lead or driven by the swarthy travelers. The gypsies must have pitched their tents in the woods a few miles north of Cedarburg, for some of them appeared again at the fair on Monday, ostensibly to dispose of some of their fast stock. How well they succeeded was not ascertained; but from their well-known qualities it is not to be at all supposed that they were taken at a disadvantage.
On Tuesday evening of last week, while some machine agents were parading a self-propelling steam engine through the streets of our city, a team belonging to Jerry BOW took fright, rushed out of JAUCKE's yard where they had been tied, and took their mad career down the depot road. They struck the hay-scales with such force as to demolish it completely, the hind wheels and rack of the wagon torn off. Near the foundry the runaway collided with another team and stopped. No one was injured though the team passed through a large crowd of people. The damages on the scales were paid by Mr. BOW, the machine agents having given sufficient warning of their approach to caution people to be careful.

The Turner's dance of next Monday will be the social event of the coming week. Everything has been done that can lend to enhance the pleasure of the evening. Everybody can feel sure of a most agreeable time. Let none, therefore, err so far as to absent themselves.

Mr. Theo. FINK, formerly of Cedarburg, was in the city last week. He says he is doing a rushing business in the boot and shoe store he recently opened with Mr. KRASSMANN on Grove St., Milwaukee.
Last Thursday morning the teachers of the public school took about fifty of the larger scholars on a pedestrian excursion to Lake Michigan. They started at 2 o'clock in the morning; though some of the boys were stirring in the streets immediately after midnight. The weather was all that could be desired and all started on the walk in high glee. The children in the exuberance of their spiritis, gained the lake shore long before the teachers, the latter reaching the top of the bluffs at the moment of sunrise. The sun rose in a light mist and presented a fine appearance.
The bluff, at the place that was visited, recedes some distance from the shore, and falls first into a broad terrace, from which again there is a short fall of ground to the narrow beach. In the middle of this terrace stands a group of gigantic aspens while further to the left a grove of cedar trees clings to the steep side of the bluff. The whole makes a very charming scene, beautiful in nature, where the hand of man is not seen except in the ruins of some ancient habitation that lends historic interest to the view. Entering into this ground, the attention of the lagging walkers was arrested by a rude sign-board, half hidden in the branches of a tree, on which written in uncouth letters was to be seen the following strange legend: "Know admission aloued without alouness." The effect of this was rather startling and put a summary end to scenic raptures for a few minutes. Two hours were spent in wandering along the beach, romping on the terrace, and climbing up the bluff.
The return home was made rather slowly and irregularly, the line of march extending so that the advanced guard was fully two miles ahead of the stragglers in the rear. A more tired lot of children than returned home that morning could hardly be imagined; but all felt happy and contented.

After considerable delay, the work on F. JAUCKE's new hotel will surely commence this week.
Mr. Wm. WIESLER, teacher in the school 1 1/2 miles north of Cedarburg, left for Chicago last Thursday, and will remain there for the summer.
A few days ago a farmer said that if the drought continued much longer, he did not know what he was going to live on next winter.
At the dance of last Monday in the Mequon Turn Hall there was a similar occurrence to that of Sunday at HAAS' dance in Thienville. We understand that no concessions were made.
Mr. L. JUERGENS has finished his term as teacher of the Louis Wagner district school in Mequon and will leave after this week for Milwaukee. He is one of the best and most successful teachers in the county.
Messrs. GOLL, HANTZCH and KERLER of Goll & Frank's, Mr. & Mrs. GOLDSMITH and family and Mr. WEISKIRCH of Milwaukee spent their Sunday here, being entertained by BOERNER Bros.
At a picnic in the Milwaukee Falls Park at Grafton, two young men of this city, possibly goaded to fecklessness by dissipation, saw fit to administer a mutual chastisement to each other. They will both have to wear a hat several sizes larger than usual in consequence.
The first excursion of the season on the M & N R.R. brought out a large number of people last Sunday. A good portion of them stopped at Cedarburg, taking this opportunity to visit their friends here, or spending their time at the Park.
Considering all attendant circumstances, the Turn Verein dance of last Monday night was quite successful. There were not many dancers on the floor because of the unusual sultriness, but a large number of people were present in the hall. All present, however, seemed to have enjoyed themselves.
FATAL STABBING AFFRAY AT RANDOM LAKE
Just before going to press we learned that a fight took place last night (Wednesday) between three young men in the Union House at Random Lake in which one of the three names SMITH was fatally stabbed, the names of the other two we could not learn. It seems that the two men had an old grudge against SMITH, and attempted on this occasion to give him a thrashing, but finding, however, that he was a match for them both, one of them drew a knife and stabbed SMITH several times in the breast and neck, his hands were also badly cut in trying to wrest the knife from his murderer. The doctor who attended SMITH gave it as his opinion that the wounds in his breast would cause death in about 48 hours, the knife having entered the lungs. Both men were arrested and lodged in jail at Sheboygan. All three are married men. -- Port Washington Advertiser
One evening last week a number of reckless young men made a late call on Mr. CHRISTIAN living on Yankee Hill, under the wrong supposition that he aged gentleman had re-entered the bonds of matrimony. To save trouble they pressed the police force into their service. Their gallant attentions were unregarded however, and they retired dryshod from the field.
The pleasure at the dance of Henry HAAS in Thiensville was seriously marred by the somewhat unwarranted action of those in attendance. Seeming to have become infected from the recent labor troubles, they established an organized strike, refusing to pay the regulation rate for dance. The rate they offered would not have allowed the proprietor to realize his expenses, and of course he remained firm. So for a large part of the evening the dancing floor was comparatively deserted, though the rest of the ball was quite crowded. Those who inaugurated this rather singular strike ought to be more careful to keep their demands within the bounds of reason.
The strawberry season here has just commenced. We acknowledge the present of some extraordinary large ones from Mrs. Jacob ZAUN, some of them measuring nearly three inches in circumference. The Wilson's Albany kind is yet extensively cultivated, as it was forty years ago. Mrs. ZAUN has quite a large area planted with several varieties.
The only son of C. MILLER of Horn's Corners met with a melancholy misfortune. From some unknown cause he was stricken with insanity while out driving and in that state nearly drove the horse to death and broke the harness and wagon. He is insensible to his immediate surroundings and is continually raving. The young man is known here and his father has the sympathy of all here in his bereavement.
Last Monday afternoon a couple of young men from one of our neighboring villages drove through our city in a state of blooming inebriancy. They were fortunate in the possession of a most patient and docile horse that seemed schooled to stop of itself at every place where refreshments could be procured. At one such place the most animated, having called for something, could not find change to pay. Having vainly attempted to stare the host out of countenance, he leered meaningly and sputtered out: "We're - er - from Saukville!" and then stopped to note the effect. But the host and the assembled crowd seemed quite unconcerned on receiving the announcement and after muttering a few incoherent words of doubtful morality, the respected citizens of Saukville produced the required change, looked at the crowd, nodded fiercely and said: "Yes, sir, we're - er - from Saukville. Do you - er- know it? We're - er - from Saukville!" But as the announcement of their domicile seemed to make no impression on the by-standers, they drove on to the next saloon.

It is said on good authority that M & N Ry will make a big change in the running of their trains commencing Monday next, the train now arriving here at 3:52 p.m. will leave Milwaukee at 5:30 p.m. arriving here at 6:30 p.m. How the others will run we have not learned, but the 9:43 a.m. train will undoubtedly remain unchanged.
The other day a down-town hotel proprietor, who contemplates rebuilding on an extensive scale, was pensively surveying the building that had profitably housed him for so many years, and that was now to be relegated to the regions of the past. His look was one of deep regret while he relieved his overburdened soul by a portentous sigh. Then returning inside, he assumed a smile of agreeable content and forthwith proceeded to pack up a number of beer glasses that were to be laid in reserve while the new hotel was going up.
Last Sunday morning several busloads of young people from Milwaukee stopped at STEIN's Hotel, Brown Deer. Being, possibly of not unquestionable morality, their hilarity consequent to their deep potations overmastered them; and, in emulation of the chivalric knights of old, they placed their lances in rest in the cause of the fair ones. The result was almost disgraceful row which throws great discredit on the conduct of certain of Milwaukee's people. A few of the young men received a rather rough handling which will be a healthful reminder to them on propriety of their conduct.

Mr. William RIEMENSCHREIDER has taken possession of the old and well-known Washington House in the village of Mequon on the Green Bay road, which his father kept for some time. In the rear of the premises is a very pleasant little park where a glass of wine or beer tastes most excellent during this warm weather. The new proprietor will endeavor to satisfy all callers from Milwaukee and elsewhere, and invites especially his friends and neighbors to give him a call. The best of beer, wine and liquor can be found at his place. Give him a call. We refer to his Advertisement in to-day's NEWS.
Night hawks have given notice of their presence. Last Wednesday night burglars entered ALHAUSER's and McGINGLEY's houses at Saukville and abstracted some valuables. On Thursday night they eased Peter SPEHN of Grafton of about $60 besides some miscellaneous articles. On the same night, between the hours of two and three, they attempted to force an entrance into the school house of R. BECKER near Horn's Corners, but being met at the door by Mr. BECKER, fear overpowered them, and they took to their heels. When the news of these depredations reached Cedarburg, great consternation reigned among our honest burghers, and all slept in the succeeding night with half an eye open, and possibly, with a six-shooter in convenient reach under the pillow. In the face of these preparations for their welcome, the burglars probably quailed, for nothing was heard of them here.
THE "BONNIWELL" SETTLEMENT IN MEQUON
When we first settled in the town of Mequon in the winter of 1840-41, we found four so-called settlements in the same, namely the Opitz, the Altenburg, the Pommeranian and the Bonniwell. The last comprised the first comers in the town, who settled in a body near Peter TURCK's saw mill on the Pigeon creek in the north-western portion of the town. There were a few scattering settlers on the river and at Port Washington before the arrival of the BONNIWELL's, but the Port Washington settlers soon abandoned the place and the few houses remained vacant up to the year 1842-43 when Col. TEALL with his son-in-law, Watrous, Wooster HARRISON, Solon JOHNSON and others returned to take possession again of the abandoned houses in the place.
The Bonniwell settlement consisted of seven brothers by that name, Wm. T., George, Charles, James, Henry, Walter and Alfred with their mother and one sister, the latter married to Mr. MOSS. Of all those first settlers none are left at the old places except Charles and Alfred BONNIWELL, so that the name of the settlement is fast passing into oblivion. The first election in Washington County after its organization was held at the house of Wm. T. BONNIWELL, who was then elected clerk of the board of county commissioners.
We might fill columns of the early history of these Mequon settlements, but fear that it might not be interesting to the present generation in the county nor to others of the readers of the NEWS.
Our being reminded of the Bonniwell settlement was occasioned by a very pleasant visit we had from our former old neighbor Charles BONNIWELL, who yet resides on the old place he selected in the year 1837 and who will be 80 years old next September. Charley is yet strong and vigorous and likely to live twenty years more to judge from his appearance. While talking together of old times, we put the question to him whether he did not think that his relations would have done at least as well by remaining like him on their old places, he readily said, "yes, I am pretty sure of it; I have been visiting some of those who moved away, but I would not exchange my farm for a much larger one any where I have been, and I was glad when I got home again."
TAX PAYERS TAKE NOTICE

H. RISMEIER of Kirchhayne will have a concert and dance next Monday July 5th, the Cedarburg Band having been engaged to furnish the music.
Though the fair of last Monday can be considered quite a good one, it fell far behind the last few in attendance and amount of business transacted.
Note the change in the Milwaukee & Northern Ry. time table at the head of this column, and don't forget that time and train wait for no main, in case the table should slip your memory. The annual school meeting of the Cedarburg Public School will take place in the school house next Monday evening, July 5th, at 8 o'clock P.M.
Mr. F.R. WEBER, having last week graduated with high honors at the University of Wisconsin, has returned to Cedarburg. He contemplates a trip to Europe for continuing his studies.
The Cedarburg band will celebrate the Fourth by an afternoon concert in the Turn Hall Park followed by a grand ball in the evening. A full attendance may be looked for.
There seems to be some opposition to having the public school picnic next Monday as is the intention of some. Those who oppose it should remember that if we have no picnic now the probability is that the children will have to be without one altogether.
Doctor FUCHS of Waubeka, we are glad to announce, has now fully recovered from his late accident and we hope to see his pleasant face soon again on a visit to Cedarburg, although his time is so occupied nearer home attending to his patients that business only will bring him here.
Preparations extraordinary at C. BOETTCHER's seemed to be indicative of some approaching marvel Speculations as to the unusual arrival were set at rest by the appearance of a bus-load of excursionists of the Milwaukee Nord-Seite Leola Club. They made their quarters at the place for the day, were most royally entertained and contrived to have an uproariously good time.
One day last week a few of our respected citizens created quite a sensation by calling on Mr. JAUCKE and attempting to influence him to make a change in his plans of building. Quite an uproar was occasioned, but the only effect was a great among of unpleasantness to Mr. JAUCKE and a general feeling of disapproval on the part of the bystanders. The plans will not be changed.
CHANGE OF TIME ON THE M. & N. R.R.
We were in the hopes that something could or would be done by which the people living along this route would be allowed a little more time in Milwaukee than to take dinner and return on the same day, but are again disappointed. The time to take dinner is even lessened since Monday 15 minutes. From the start the people along the line never had a chance to transact business in Milwaukee and return the same day. Doubtless this is not owing to any ill will towards the country people, but to the connections with the M. & St. P. roads. Meantime people that want to do any kind of business in Milwaukee must go without their dinner or will have to stay over night. The loss of travel on the Railroad must be great and the Cedarburg omnibus is always crowded. Just think of an omnibus line running successful opposition to an otherwise first class railroad!
FROM PORT WASHINGTON
Work on the additions and wings to the bridge abutments was commenced last week. Some difficulty was experienced on the east side on account of the water, but by hard work and judicious management in the water is now under control, and the work is going on rapidly. City Clerk COE is directing the work, and Mayor LYMAN is also keeping an eye on things -- Advertiser
From the Star - -
