The loss of this estimable lady will be keenly felt, not only in the community in which for so many years she has been a shining light, but to the cause of benevolence and philanthropy generally. Possessed of liberal means, it seems to have been the study and delight of Miss Downs to assuage sorrow, ameliorate the suffering, and supply the wants of the destitute. The cause of true benevolence never appealed to her in vain. A sufferer for many years herself from ill health, her heart seems to have beat in sympathy and love for all who were made to bow under the rod of affliction. Grateful hearts everywhere will mourn her loss, and bless the memory of one who seemed to live only for the good she could do for others. 3/9/1870 MARRIED At the M.

He belonged to the Stockbridge tribe, most of whom are now in Wisconsin. He served in the war of 1812 under Capt. Jacobs, and his attachment to his old hunting grounds in the Chenango Valley was very strong. ITHAMER SPENCER. Deacon Spencer died at Unadilla, Nov. 4th, at the advanced age of 88. Mr. Spencer was born in Columbia county, in this State, in 1782. Came to Otsego county when only 14 years old and when the country was almost an unbroken wilderness. At the age of 23 he became a professor of religion of Jesus, and since then has stood in the foremost ranks, a pillar in the church until age rendered him unfit for active duties. Wherever he has lived traces of his usefulness may be found. In 1820 he with others built a church in Maryland, Otsego Co. In 1844 he came to Unadilla where he was at once elected Deacon in the Presbyterian church, in which office he continued until death summoned him away. From the lives and examples of the departed the living should draw lessons of wisdom, hope, consolation. What higher ambition should we, the living have, than to live as the christian lives to the honor and glory of God, and as the good citizen to the welfare of his fellow men? "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy mind." This is the first and great commandment, and the second is like unto it: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
