He lay down upon the lounge in the barber shop attached to said house, and remained there through the night, and was found there dead in the morning. We understand that the physicians say that he died in an apoplectic fit. He was about 53 years of age. Word was immediately sent to his family, and his remains were taken to Franklin Friday afternoon. AN OCTOGENARIAN. We had a pleasant call one day last week from Mr. Gamaliel SCRIBNER, of New Berlin, now 82 years of age, who for the first time in his long life witnessed the operation of steam printing. It is 75 years ago last May since Mr. S. passed through this place with his parents, to seek a home in "the West." They came from Ballston, Saratoga Co., and passed down the Susquehanna to Unadilla, and up the Unadilla river to New Berlin in a canoe-and there Mr. S. has resided ever since, on the same farm. Some of the apple trees, planted by the Indians, found growing there in 1790, budded and blossomed last season. The ----(line not there). they arrived at New Berlin, was from wheat taken by boat to a mill at Binghamton.- There were no roads or dwellings at that time between the two places. A few families settled about the same time at Butternuts, and a Frenchman named De Ville built a mill there. The Scribners spent three or four days in cutting a road thro' to that mill. Mr. S. may live to see a train of cars pass near the same road.- [F. Journal. MARRIED ROOD-HOTCHKISS.- At the residence of Mr. Harvey STRONG, in Laurens, Oct. 25th, by Rev. W. L.

The Corner held an inquest, and the jury returned a verdict of suicide. About the correctness of this verdict, considerable doubt is expressed. The well is one which has been abandoned and covered up with boards, one of which has been recently displaced. Mr. C. was unwell, and went out that morning before daylight, and as members of his family think, accidently fell into the well.- [Otsego Republican] 11/29/1865 MARRIED PARISH-MORELL.- In Franklin, Nov. 16th, by Rev.

The circumstances of this horrible murder at Coontown on Thanksgiving Day will be remembered. We learn that two men have been arrested at that place on suspicion of being the murderers. Means have been taken for their identification. "MURDER WILL OUT." One day last week two brothers by the name of REYNARD were arrested in the town of Jefferson, on suspicion of having murdered their father some five years since. The story that we have heard runs like this:- Some five years since the father of the two boys was murdered, and no clue to the perpetrators of the horrible deed could be obtained. The father at the time was living along (sic). He and his wife having had some difficulty. After his death, she came and claimed the property, the two sons having left the country. About two years since the boys returned and bought about six acres of land in the woods, about three miles from Jefferson, Schoharie Co., owned by George Burnett. Here they built them a log house, and have lived in this secluded style ever since. At the time of their moving to this county one of the men was a widower and the other a bachelor. About a year since the bachelor married a girl in Jefferson, by the name of ROBINSON. What led to the suspicion that they were the participators in the murder of their father we are unable to learn, but they were arrested by the Sheriff of Delaware county, and taken to Stamford in that county, where an examination was had, and they were committed to jail at Delhi, to await further proceedings. The mother, we understand is still living, and resides at Catskill, Geene Co.- [Cobleskill Index.

We learn from the Schenevus Monitor, that Mr. John VANDEBOE, who lived in the North part of the town of Maryland, had been attending a dance, held in a neighboring town Dec. 29th. Saturday morning early, he started for home, accompanied by a lady friend, and had proceeded but a short distance, when from some cause the horses sprang and partially disengaged themselves from the wagon, and Mr. V. in his attempt to hold them was precipitated over the front part of the wagon, and violently dashed to the earth, the wagon passing over him, leaving him senseless in the road. He was carried to the house of Mr. Shears, near by, where he lingered until the next evening, when death put an end to his sufferings. By this dispensation, his four children are left without a natural protector, as the mother died some eight months since, and an estimable lady, to whom he was to be married on New Year's day, has thus had her cup of anticipated earthly felicity, suddenly dashed to pieces.

A despatch dated Herkimer, May 8th, states:- At the court of Oyer and Temlner, Judge Baton(?) presiding, a bin of indictment was found this morning against Asa FULLER, Biel DAVIS, Irving VANCE, Charles VANCE and William DUTCHER for murder.- The indictment charges them with killing John L. CAMPBELL at Frankfort on the 6th of February last. At four o'clock this P. M. the prisoners pled guilty to murder in the 2d degree, and were sentenced to seven years in the State Prison at Auburn. Campbell was formerly a resident of this county, and has a brother now residing in this town. It appears to us that seven years in the State Prison is a very light punishment for a party of men committing murder, without the slightest provocation. A plea is made that they were intoxicated. This should not lessen the punishment one atom. 5/23/1866 FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT - A CHILD KILLED. Last evening, on the arrival of the five o'clock train on the Susquehanna road, as the train was passing through Church street, near Westerlo, a little boy about five years of age, named Willie GILBERT, son of Simeon Gilbert, an employee of the road, attempted to get on the cow-catcher. In doing so, he fell or was thrown under the cars, the engine passing over him, severing both legs from the body, between the knees and ankles. The child was picked up and carried to the residence of his parents, where it lingered in the most agony until about ten o'clock, when death put an end to its sufferings. [Evening Journal, May 18th. How often has cold chills passed over us, as we have seen boys jumping on the cars when in motion at our Depot. The above should be a warning to boys especially, and to parents to keep their children away from the Depot until they are learned of the danger in jumping on the cars when they are moving. DEATH OF THURLOW W. BROWN. We regret to learn that Thurlow W. Brown died at Atkinson, Wis., on the 4th inst. Mr. Brown was formerly resided at Preston, Chenango county, was well known to many of our older citizens. But as editor of the Cayuga Chief, which he conducted with great ability and success, and by other reformatory publications and writings, he became known to a much larger circle, in which he was heartily deservedly esteemed. His death will be felt as both a public and personal loss. [Chenango Telegraph. MARRIED WINN-QUACKENBUSH.- In Oneonta, April 24th, by Rev. E. C. Hodge, Mr. G. W.

Never was the aphorism "death loves a shining mark" more true, than when sorrows barbed arrow pierced of this afflicted family, and removed suddenly the cherished idol of their affections. She was the pet of all who knew her, and the silent saddness of those who had been accustomed to hear her childish laughter, audibly spoken their spontaneous sorrow. But a brief time she was permitted to suffer here, and is now gone to exult with Angels. Her innocent prattle will be heard no more. Yet her gentle voice still lingers and thrills the memory with the echo of its vanished music. (Poem included with notice.) 6/6/1866 MARRIED TUCKER-GREENE.- At the house of the bride's mother, Tuesday, May 26th, by Rev. D. Tuttle of Morris, Mr. Chauncey L.

DIED RATHBUN.- In North Franklin, May 25th, Edward Rathbun, aged 37 years, 8 months and 5 days. 6/20/1866 REMARKABLE DEATH AND DREAM. On last Friday morning, one of the most remarkable and melancholy dispensations of Divine Providence was manifested in this neighbor, which it has even been our duty to record. Mr. W. T. SISK, who was a farmer near this town, while out quite early in the morning attending to the feeding of some stock during a severe storm, was strickened by lightning near his stable, and instantly killed. His clothing was stripped from his body in threads, his hat even cut into minute prices, the very soles of his boots torn into atoms. He was not missed by his wife and family until breakfast was prepared, when a little boy was sent out to ask him to his meal. The child saw him, but did not recognize his father , so terrific had been the work of the angry element, but breathlessly told his mother that some stranger was dead near the stable. An examination, however, proved the unfortunate father had been a victim of lightning, and his family are left alone-alone indeed. He was a gentleman respected and beloved by all his fellow citizens. A remarkable story is told of his dream a night or two before, in which he related that it appeared he had died and was summoned before the judgment bar of God, and although he plead hard against the decree, he had been ordered to stand aside.- [Evansville (Ia.) Courier. SUICIDE. We learn that on Friday last an old lady by the name of GREGORY, of Perry City, Schuyler county, after four weeks of constant drunkenness, ended her miserable existence by cutting her own throat. After an almost entire life spend in dissipation, the demon rum failed to satisfy the cravings of that dreadful appetite which it had created, and left its victim to hurry her own soul unbidden into the presence of its Maker, there to render an account of the God-given life, spent in working iniquity. O, what a thought! that in this enlightened and christian community, rum has found among the frailer sex another victim; and that a once fair girl has gone down, distorted and besotted to fill a drunkard's grave. When, within the shadow of our elegant churches, within the sound of the warning voice of the preached gospel, will these things cease, and temperance and christian charity be the principles of all?- [Tompkins County Sentinel. FRANKLIN ITEMS. DIED. Mrs. SNYDER, the lady we spoke of last week, as getting badly burned at Milford Center, lingered along through much suffering until Sunday morning last when she died. Her suffering was intense.- Some of her fingers dropped off and the flesh, came off her arms, leaving the bone and cords all bare. Her face was so badly burned that her most intimate friends could see no trace of her former looks. Mrs. S. formerly resided in this village.- Her husband for some time kept a Saloon in the Basement of Bundy's store. CHURCH BLOWN DOWN--ONE MAN KILLED. On Wednesday afternoon, 6th inst., while the Baptist Church at Deposit was undergoing some repairs, it was struck by a severe gale of wind which completely demolished the building. Five men were at work under the floor when it fell, four of them providentially escaped, while the fifth, James DOUGLAS, aged about 20 years, was instantly killed. We understand that the Church will be immediately re-built. The bell, although falling to the ground, was not injured. 6/27/1866 MURDER IN SPRINGFIELD. On Saturday, 16h inst., two men residing in the South-West part of Fort Plain, named John HARDENDORF and Patrick WARD, had a quarrel, at Salt Springville, Otsego county, when Ward struck Hardendorf across the forehead with a club, fracturing his skull. Hardendorf was carried to his home, where he died on Monday morning, from the effects of the injuries. Ward was allowed to go at large until Hardendorf's death, when a warrant was taken out for his arrest; but he had fled. MARRIED YAGER-YAGER.

Simmons, of Philadelphia. 7/11/1866 OBITUARY. The announcement of the death of Don F. LIDELL, Esq., County Clerk of Otsego county which occurred last night at 10 o'clock, will carry a feeling of sadness to many hearts. His social and business qualities, his honesty and uprightness in his varied business relations, will be recognized not only by citizens of his own neighborhood but by many others throughout the county and State, and especially by the bar of Otsego county, and other distinguished lawyers, who have practiced here during his term as County Clerk. He was always candid, frank, and urbane, meeting all with whom he associated with that unmistakable smile, indicative of the benevolent feelings of a kind and feeling heart. He enjoyed the noble and heartfelt satisfaction of having been a firm supporter of his government during the long period when traitors, south and north, were willing to sacrifice it for base purposes. His death will be lamented, not only by his own family connections, but by a large circle of sympathizing friends. His decease will bring the electing of Clerk and Sheriff again together, at the fall election, which has not occurred in this county since the death of Sheriff Henry JONES of Cherry Valley. He was aged thirty-two years. His funeral will take place from his residence at 12 o'clock on Friday.-[Otsego Republican July 5th. 7/18/1866 DROWNED. A son, aged about 13 years, of Deacon Wm. CADY, of Chaseville, in the town of Maryland, was drowned while in bathing in the Schenevus creek on the 7th inst.- Young Cady ventured into deep water, and, not being able to swim, sank to rise no more. His companions were not able to save him, and before help could arrive he was out of sight.

He died as he lived, with the christian armor on, and while his aged widow and children and more distant relatives mourn their loss, he is reaping a faithful savants reward. H. 8/8/1866 AN OLD RESIDENT GONE. Died, in this village, Tuesday morning July 31st, Samuel B. BEACH, Esq., in the 80th year of his age. Mr. Beach was a graduate of Yale College, and a lawyer by profession. He was long a resident of this village. In 1836 after the election of Martin Van Buren to the Presidency, Mr. Beach was appointed to a clerkship in the Post Office Department at Washington, under Amos Kendall, who was then Postmaster-General; which Department he remained in most of the time until after the election of Mr. Lincoln. He was a man widely known and possessed considerable ability, and had an eye to public improvements. He was the projector of the Albany and Susquehanna Rail Road, and through his untiring solicitation the first public meeting was held and the Susquehanna Railroad Company formed; for which the citizens of this place should ever reverence his memory. He said to us a few years since "that he wanted to live to see the cars run into Oneonta, and then he was ready to depart." He lived to know the fact, but his mental faculties had become so much impaired that it is doubtful whether he realized it. He had been failing gradually for several years, but had been confined to his house for the last year or more of his live (sic). He has gone to a just God, and his faults should be forgotten, and his good works cherished in the memory of those who are permitted to live and enjoy their fruits. (Poem included with notice.) GEN. DAVID LAMONT, United States Mail Agent on the A. & S. R. R., died at his residence in Unadilla, on Tuesday, July 31st, after a brief illness. He was the father of the Hon. Wm. C. Lamont, County Judge and Surrogate of Schoharie County. His remains were carried to Richmondville for interment. A SAD CAUSALITY. On Tuesday last a son of Rev. Dr. Alfred BEACH of New York, and grand-son of Judge NELSON of Cooperstown, aged 10 years, was drowned while sailing on the lake at Cooperstown. He was struck by the boon while sitting upon the sun-wale, and was instantly submerged. Two boys only two years older than himself was with him and they were unable to assist him. The body was recovered after a search of about twelve hours. CASE OF ELOPEMENT. Last Thursday afternoon a telegram was received at police headquarters from one Jacob WINNE, of Oneonta, requesting the arrest and detention of his wife, Sally Winne, and Lemuel HIGGINS, who had eloped together, and would arrive in this city on the afternoon train. Detectives Hale and Bradt proceeded to the Susquehanna depot, and upon arrival of the train arrested the runaway couple, and took them before Judge Parsons. Mrs. Winne, who, by the way, is rather prepossessing in appearance, stated that she did not elope with Higgins-that they accidently met each other on the train; that she was going to Catskill, while Higgins was bound for New York. She had a valise which contained a quantity of clothing. She gave as a reason for leaving home that her husband had treated her badly. She said that she had been married ten years, and had three children. Higgins is a stage-driver, and has a wife living at Delhi. As the parties had committed no criminal offense upon which the magistrate would be justified in holding them, they were sat at liberty. We learn that they left together in the 4:40 p.m. train for New York. How far they will journey together does not admit of much doubt.-[Albany Express. 9/5/1866 FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT. A sad accident occurred on the Susquehanna Railroad yesterday morning, near Guilderland. Two children were playing on the track when the train due here at 9:30 A. M. came along. The engineer discovered the children and blew the whistle. One of the children got off the track, but the other was struck by the cowcatcher and instantly killed. It was a little daughter of David VINE, who resided but a few rods from the scene of the accident. The body was picked up and conveyed to the house where an inquest was held.- [Albany Journal, August 31. DEATH OF DEAN RICHMOND.- Dean Richmond died in New York, Monday, Aug. 27. Mr. Richmond's important and honorable connections with the business interests of the country make his death a public calamity. He was born at Woobstock (Woodstock?), Vt., in 1804, being at the time of his death 63 years old. Mr. Richmond began life with no capital but industry, energy and honesty. He first engaged in the manufacture of salt at Syracuse; afterwards he moved to Buffalo and met with success as a grain dealer, having in the meantime, identified himself with the railroad interests of the State. He was at first a Director, then Vice President, and two years ago was made President of the Central Road. At the time of his death he was President of the Central and Lake Shore Roads. Mr. Richmond was also a politician, and won some distinction as a wise and sagacious political campaigner. DEATH OF A VENERABLE LAWYER.- Hon. Fortune C. WHITE died at his residence in Whitesboro, on the 27th, in the eightieth year of his age. He died where he was born-the town having been settled by his grandfather in 1784. He was believed, at the time of his death, to have been the oldest person born in the county of Oneida. He studied law with Judge Jones Platt, and was a partner of the once celebrated Henry R. Storrs, of Utica. He acquired distinction at the bar, and was eminent as a legislator. He was a member of Assembly in 1820 and again in 1838; a Judge of Oneida county form 1841 to 1846; and served as an officer, in the war of 1812. He was a man of exemplary private life, and highly respected by all classes. MARRIED BEAMS-SHELLMAN.- At the Parsonage in Davenport Center, August 30th, by Rev. Wm. D.

Y., who represented the Thirteenth District of the State in the Thirty-seventh and Thirty-eighth Congress, and who was at one time County Judge of Ulster county, was killed at Kingston September 24th, by being thrown from a wagon. He lived only three hours after the accident, which occurred under the following circumstances: Mr. Steele, having hired a horse and top carriage at a livery stable, was driving through one of the streets of Rondout, when the horse took fright and started off at a violent rate of speed, hurling the unfortunat (sic) gentleman from the vehicle. On touching the ground Mr. Steele's head struck the curbstone. He was picked up immediately, but was then insensible, and being conveyed to his residence expired in about three hours after receiving the injury. Mr. Steele formerly resided in this village, and practised (sic) law here for several years, and was for three years District Attorney of this county. He was the leader of the Democratic party in Ulster county, and was to have been nominated (so report says) for Congress. He leaves a wife and one child.

BASSINGER, a farmer of the town of Springfield, on the 26th of September. The jury found that deceased came to his death by hanging on the morning of the 26th. The deceased had been ill for about three years, and for the three last weeks had been growing worse, giving up the hope at last of ever recovering. It appears that his wife got up early that morning, and went to his room, not finding him, supposed he was building a fire; afterward, not finding him in the house, she found him hanging in the barn, dead and cold. He left a wife and four children, the eldest about ten and the youngest one year old.-[Otsego Republican. FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE A. & S. R. R. On Thursday morning last as the 7:30 A. M. train from Albany neared Worcester the engineer saw a man on the track blew the whistle and stopped the train as soon as possible. The man had abundant opportunity to get out of the way, but failed to do so. The cow catcher cut off one leg below the knee and threw him up about ten feet, striking against the embankment and smashing in the back part of the skull, causing death. His name was John C. CLOW, 59 years of age, and leaves a wife and two children. He was going to East Worcester at the time of the accident, and it seems partially deaf. He, however, attempted to get off the track when his cane caught and threw him back. No blame whatever is to be attached to the employees of the road.-[Schoharie Republican.

Last Thursday evening Miss Polly Schofield-or as she was more familiarly known by intimate friends Aunt Polly-retired in her usual good health at about 7 o'clock, and soon thereafter went into a fit and died in about an hour. She was aunt to Dr. Reynolds, with whom she resided. She was about 80 years of age. There are many out side of her own relation who mourn the death of this aged woman. She was highly respected by all who knew her; and died in the hope of a glorious immortality. INSTANTLY KILLED. Wednesday morning, October 24, about 10 o'clock a German by the name of Clous COSIO, residing near the toll-gate, who was working for F. M. Kemp, in this village, was instantly killed in the following manner: He was tending a machine called a broom-corn scraper, which is run by horse-power, and his wife was by his side handing him the broom-corn as he put it in, when the teeth of the machine caught his hand and instantly drew his whole arm and shoulder in, cutting, mangling and tearing his arm, shoulder and body in the most horrible manner. Walter Kemp, who was the other side of the machine, instantly threw off the belt, stopped the machine and drew Cosio out, but it was too late. He was a poor man, about 35 years of age, and leaves a wife and three young children. His wife was nearly frantic with grief. Only a few months ago a little son of theirs was killed by a falling from a tree in Palatine.-[C. V. Gazette. 11/14/1866 FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE A. & S. R. R. A terrible accident occurred on the road last Wednesday morning. Ira RACE, a brakeman in the employ of the road, while attempting to get on the train at Schenevus, was thrown under the wheels and so terribly injured that this bowels were torn out. He died soon after of his injuries. The remains of the unfortunate man were carried to the city of Albany last Wednesday evening, and forwarded to Oswego, where the deceased leaves a wife and one child.

The father and mother being out, left their little boy only three years old, with a younger child in the house. The boy, while playing with the fire, through some means came in contact with the blaze, and his cotton clothes were soon consumed, and the little sufferer was literally crisped. He lived only a few hours, and his sufferings ended. MARRIED BRIDGES-BINGHAM.- In Oneonta, Nov. 14, 1866, by Rev. E. Crowell, Mr. Nathan Bridges, to Miss Fannie Bingham.-all of this village. From the above couple, the Printer received a handsome fee, for which they have our very best wishes for a long life-a happy and a prosperous one, and we know they will have it, for we never knew an instance where the Printer was handsomely remembered, that they did not enjoy happiness unbounded during their whole life.

Yes, Henry, we miss him sadly; the voice which as it were but yesterday, filling all hearts with gladness, is now hushed. In the quiet resting place of the dead lies now the cold silent form of the loved one. There's a vacant place in the home-circle, and a broken link in the hearts of that household band. May time, the soother of all sorrow, heal the wounded hearts, teaching them humbly to bow to this chaisetizement, knowing there is one who doeth all things well. H. 12/5/1866 FATAL ACCIDENT.
