The Destruction of Peshtigo-The Fire
Blown by a Tornado Entirely Across
the Village-Great Loss of Lift .
A correspondent, writing from Menasha,
Wis., on the 11th instant, describes the de?
struction of Pesr-t'go :
The village was situated on Peshtigo River
seven miles from Green Bay. It was a nice
little town of about two thousand Inhabitants,
quite regularly laid out, bad fine hotels, stores,
-churches, schools, Ac, besides the large fac?
tory owned by the Peshtigo Manufacturing
Company, a fash, door and blind factory and
foundry also owned by the same company, who
owned nearly every building In the town. The
factory was devoted to the manufacture of
pails, tubs, broom bandies, Ac, and gave em?
ployment to about seven hundred bands In
the different bran ches. The town ls nearly sur?
rounded by pire forests, the suburban portions
being built "among the pines." The inhabit?
ants have for the past ten days been fighting Are
in the wood?, trying to save the town, and
bad settled down into a fee'ing of compara?
tive security, since the woods on all sides had
been more or less burned over. On Sunday
night they were awakened Irom tilts feeling
of security by a noise like distant thunder.
^ich increased in volume until the crash ot
lolling trees and the roar of the wind ?nd tire
could be plainly heard. Scon after a tornado
burst upon the town, unroofing a number of
building?, and quickly followed by a. solid
sheet ot flame, extending the whole length ot
the village and lar beyond each way. In an
Instaut the whole exposed side of the place
was in flames. Men, women and children
rushed into the street, and. surrounded by
fire on all sides, were soon either smothered
or burned to death. In the less exposed por?
tions ?he people fled to the river, and, jump?
ing in, many were drowned. Some saved their
lives by keeping their bodies well under water,
jjMBjjAnii once in awhile putting their heads under as
T ^ine heat became Insufferable. Others took re?
fuge in wells and cisterns and were saved. Quite
a large portion of the inhabitants ran to a deld
to the leeward of the Are, and by lying on the
ground were saved, although some of these
were badly burned. There ls but one house
left standing, and that ls isolated and lately
built of green lumber. As near as can at pres?
ent be ascertained, 250 lives have been lost,
mostly women and children. Although a good
.many men have perished, lhere are 75 who
are badly burned, many ot whom will die, and
nearly ail are more or less burned. The de?
struction has been so complete that the streets
cannot be traced, all being covered with sand,
which was swept In great clouds by the torna?
do. In some instances bodies have been
found completely covered by sand.
I could fill columns with heart-rending inci?
dents of this conflagration, but will only give
a few as Illustrative of the rest. In one In?
stance a man took, his family and fled to the
bridge spanning the river. The bridge was
soon on Are, and the poor unfortunate family
were nearly roasted alive, and then Jumped
into the river and were drowned. A woman,
on seeing the Are approaching, put her little
girl, a child of six years, In a well, which was
nearly dry, and ran to the river herself for
security. The woman was saved, and, as
soon as' she could, found out the locality, and
her joy was so great at Anding the little one
alive and well, that she swooned, and on re?
covering clasped her child in her arms, and
ran off crying for |oy. Two few, alas, were
so fortunate. In many cases whole
families have perished. In other cases
men have lost their families, they
-being, at the time of the Are, work?
ing to save the factories. In other Instances
men perished In their endeavor to Bave their
families. In one case to which my attention
was called, a little boy of seven years Is the
only surviving member of a numerous family.
As soon as the fire had sufficiently subsided,
all that were able went to the relief of the
sufferer?. Blackened, charred corpses were
lying in every direction, with their clothing,
~as a general thing, nearly or quite burned
jSbff. Many dead bodies were found In the
river, and many more have since been recov?
ered. A number have died from their bruises,
while others are crippled or fearfully disfig?
ured. The most imaginative mind cannot be?
gin to realize this fearful calamity, much less
my poor pen to describe it. The shrieks and
groans of the dying, and of those who had lost
near and dear friends; the ghastly aspect ot
the blackened corpses; the shocking appear?
ance of many who, bad ly burned and almost des?
titute of clothing, were running they knew not
where; others Tn the last agonies of death
made a picture too horrid for contemplation.
The sufferers have all been taken to Green
Bay and other towns, where they will be kind?
ly cared Tor, as hospitality ls one of the mark?
ed traits of the West. The loss to the Pesh?
tigo Company, who owned the factories and
most of the town, besides large pine lands, ls
estimated at three million dollars, besides the
loss of their extensive warehouses in Chicago.
Mennekaunee, a town of seven or eight hun?
dred inhabitants, is all destroyed but three
houses. Fortunately, no lives were lost here,
lisrinette is also nearly all destroyed. Busi?
ness in this section is partially suspended. All
the saw mills and factories at Oskosh, Fon du
Lac, and other neighboring towns, are stopped
by an order of the authorities.
Hore Scenes pud Incidents of the Great
The full horrors of the Chicago fire will prob?
ably never be accurately known. For a long
time to come they will not be adequately de?
picted, even if entirely realized. We append
some extracts from the accounts in the North?
ern papers :
THE SCENE IX THE TUNNEL.
One of the most dramatic and impressive
scenes ot the Are, not yet reported, was the
Algbt through the new LaSalle street tunnel
under the river during Sunday night. It was
about 2 o'clock when* this strange hegira be?
gun, and In ten minutes lt became a furious
route. The bridges-on both sides were on Are,
and the Hames were writhing over the decks
of the brigs in the river, and winding their
fierce arms of flame around the masts and
through the rigging like a monstrous, lumt
Si devil-fish. The awful canopy of Are drew
n and closed over Water street as the
shrieking multitude rushed for the tunnel, the
only avenue of escape. The gas works bad
already blown up, and there was no light In
any house save the illumination which lighted
up only to destroy. But Into the darkened cave
rushed pell-mell, from all directions, the fren
zled crowd-bankers, thieves, draymen, wives,
children-in every stage of undress, as they
had leaped lrom burning lodgings, a howling
Imploring, cursing, praying, walting mo%\
matyng their desperate dive under the river.
It was as dark In the tunnel as lt is in the cen?
tre of the earth, perhaps darker. Hundreds of
the fugitives were laden with lurniture, house?
hold goods, utensils, loaves ot bread and pieces
of meat, and their rush through the almost
suffocating tunnel was tearful In the extreme.
They knocked each other down, and the strong
trod on the helpless. Nothing was heard at
the mouth of the cavernous prison but a muf?
fled howl ot rage and anguish. Several came
forth with broken limbs and terrible bruises,
as they scattered and resumed their flight un?
der the blazing sky in the North Ward."
A CONSUMING FIRE.
There Is an amazing absence of debris, for
the Are seems to have literally s ?allowed all
these huge houses, leaving nothing behind but
heaps of ashes and a few scraps of iron. I had
expected to And i he streets encumbered with
huge masses of bricks, iron, and other refuse,
but found them almost entirely clear, and no?
where so blocked as to be Impassable for vehi?
cles. It seemed as if the Are devoured the
buildings so rapidly that only inMgniflcant
fragments tell to the ground, and I can readily
believe the statemeni that the flames spread
lrom block to blobk laster than a man could
walk. Bur, complete as ls the destruction In
the South Division, lt ls as nothing compared
with ibat in the North Division. There, with
one exception, everything is levelled even
with the streets. Not a timber remains, nor
one single brick in its place. The one excep?
tion ia another marvel ol this great conflagra
lion, as lt is a trame house that was in the
?idst of the fire, and yet lt is scarcely touched.
lhere was practically no Sabbath on the
North Side. Hundreds were engaged in put?
ting up shanties to sheller them from the
rigors of winter, of which tLe temperature of
to day was a sharp reminder. Thus far some
two hundred of these improvised dweliings
have been put up or been commenced, and
only a few days hence Chicago will closely
resemble those temporary towns which marked
the progress of the Pacific Railroad. It is re?
quired that these shanties shall not be more
than one story high, and the requirement is
generally obeyed; but I saw three which were
two stories high. In several cases, while
the father was building the house, the mother
and children were gathered near by arranging
remnants of household goods saved irom the
flames ready to be placed In the new domicile
when finished. Only a few hours are required
to complete these make-shifts lor dwellings.
I saw just now a mother, worried by five Fmall
wailing children, under a shed quietly engaged
In cooking their noonday meal of lood, fur?
nished by a generous nation, using a shattered
stove picked up somewhere among the ruins.
Scenes like this can be encountered at every
THE DEAD BODIES.
It is an impossibility for the human mind lo
conceive ot a sight more heartrending than
the one presenten at No. 64 Milwaukee avenue,
the temporary morgue for the reception of the
victims of the conflagration. The place is In
charge of Officer Mitchell, and guarded by a
siroug posse of police, but despite the stren?
uous exertions it is impossible to maintain
anything like system or regularity in the ex?
hibition ol the bodies. Thousands of people
are congregated thereabouts, and fairly be?
siege ihe building. Mothers in search of their
missing children, wives for their husbands,
and husbands tor their wives and families,
children sobbing for their lost parents and
friends-all sunk to the very depth of human
misery and desolation. The number of bodies
so tar brought lc reaches nearly or quite eigh?
ty, but lt is not possible to recognize more
than half a dozen, being lor the most part
actually burned lo a crisp.
TUE LAND AND COURT RECORDS.
Next to the fearful loss of life and the terrible
destruction of property the questions which
most concern the people of Chicago are those
relating to the land and court records. All
the records ot deeds and mortgages
are destroyed. This Includes all thereat es?
tate not only In Chicago, but In Cook County,
with its numerous suburban towns. Fortunate?
ly, the abstracts of titles In the office of Shor
tall & Hoar, conveyancers, are known to be
safe. A leading member of the Chicago bar
gives lt as bis opinion that the title to all
the property In the county can re re-es?
tablished by means ol these abstracts.
The legislature will probably pass some
enabling act to cover the case. As to
the value of real estate, it ls now en?
tirely indeterminate, because lt ls Impossible
to divine where the future business centre
will be. The latter will depend upon the loca?
tion selected by the leading business houses,
which are already in consultation. There ls
not a law office nor a law library left in Chi
chago, except the lew small duplicate libraries
at the residences of the leading lawyers. There
ls not a paper showing that there is a suit j
pending in any ol 'he six courts of record in
Cook County, including the Federar Court.
There ls not an Indictment in existence in the
countv against any one-not a Judgment, not
a petition In bankruptcy, In the Federal
courts. Even the duplicate files that the law?
yers kept in their offices are all gone. A few
may have escaped by being taken to the
houses for Sunday or night work. We may
add that there are In Chicago about five hun?
dred lawyers. The fire seized the upper por?
tion of the central part of the courthouse,
and sent the great bell crashing down through
the building io the place where the records
were kept, and the mass of ruins thus crea?
ted made lt Impossible to preserve the
county records, upon which the establishment
of proofs of ownership to real properly de?
pended. Nevertheless, one tact will doubtless
gr?vent the confusion which must otherwise
attend the loss of these valuable papers. The
[ two abstract firms of Messrs. Chase, Brothers
& Co.; and F. w. Jones & Co., succeeded in
saving all of their books, which contain an
allusion, by way ot index, to every pending'
suit, every Judgment, and nearly every execu?
tion. They Lave also preserved their map
CRIME IS THE STATE.
Robbery In Newberry.
The Herald says: "Last Wednesday night a
negro man, who gives his name as Llmus
Ruff, allas Llmus Suber, alias Bill Holloway,
entered the second story window of Mr. Foot's
residence, by ascending a tree and getting
upon the porch. He raised the window and
entered the thamber ol the young ladles, who
were aroused from sleep by the villain's
placing his band upon the throat of one ol the
young ladles. Their screams awoke the
family, when the fellow made bis escape. He
was soon after tracked and taken by the young
men of the family, and lodged In Jail. The
outrage will serve as a warning to our citizens
to be watchful."
Homicide in Williamsburg.
The Star says : "Tom McCottry, sometimes
called Tom McElveen, shot and killed a young
negro girl called Clarinda on last Wednesday.
Tom, we learn, was In an altercation with bis
wife, who was the mother of the girl by a for?
mer husband. The girl took part for her
mother and 6aid something to Tom, who de?
liberately shot her, the contents of his gun
taking effect about her neck, killing her in?
stantly. He immediately made bis escape,
and has not been arrested up to this time.
The Jury of inquest returned a verdict of wilful
murder. We think a reward of five hundred
dollars. Governor Scott's price for murderers
In this district, would bring Tom to justice."
.1 SINGULAR CASE.
A case of udusuai interest has lust been de?
cided in the Supreme Court of Illinois. Dur?
ing the first year ol the war, when General S.
B. Buckner, ot Kentuckey, entered the Con?
federate service, in order to protect himself j
against confiscation he and Mrs. Buckner con
veyed to the brother ot the latter, Henry
Kingsbury, the large estate in Illinois which
Mrs. Buckner had inherited from her fattier.
Mr. Kingsbury was an officer in the United
States army, and was killed at the battle of]
Shargsburg. A month or two after his death
his widow gave birth to a son, whose guardians
claimed, that he was entitled to the whole
property, there being no documentary proof I
of any trust to Colonel Kingsbury on behalf of |
his sister, Mrs. Buckner, and the court so
adjudged. It appeared subsequently that Col?
onel Kingsbury, before going to Sharpsburg,
made a written disposition ot the whole prop?
erty, which amounted to a will, In which he
bequeathed one-third of the estate to bis Bister,
Mrs. Buckner. This will was admitted to pro?
bate and duly recorded, and Mrs. Buckner in?
stituted proceedings for the recovery of her
property, alleging that tr e deed which she and
General Buckner made .0 her brother was in
reality only a deed ot trust, and that the be?
quest of the will was a fulfilment of it, though
lt only gave her one-third, while, lu fact, she
was entitled to one-half, accounting for the
discrepancy by the mistaken bellet ot her
brother, that he, Mrs. B. and their mother
were entitled to equal portions. The guar?
dians of the child Insisted that the will was not
a valli one, and that the deed of conveyance
to Colonel Kingsbury was absolute, and not a
trust deed. The Supreme. Court of Illinois
havo quite recently decided that the deed to
Kingsbury was a trust deed, aud ordered the
restoration ot the estate to Mrs. Buckner.
The property was situated In Chicago, and be?
t?re the fire was >'alued at upwards of a mil?
lion ol' dollars. We are sincerely glad that
General Buckner has recovered his property,
and hope that it was not Included In the late

A CASE OF RADICAL "JUSTICE.'

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
None of the people In this neighborhood
wish to step outside of tbejaw to obtain re?
dress for wrongs, but we want sufficient and'
adequate punishment Inflicted when crime ls
committed, and we hold that the judge who
denies us this is a party to any unlawful acts
that may in, consequence arise. A case In
point has created quite an excitement In this
community. On or about the 4th of July last,
Mr. F., (who had lately been married,) on his
return from work, found his wile nearly dead
from wounds Inflicted by an axe In the hands
of NeUy Grimes, colored. Like a law-abiding
citizen, instead of taking the matter In his own
hands, he Immediately applied for a war?
rant of arrest for the Bald Nelly Grimes. The
arrest was made the next night as she was
attempting to escape on the cars, and she was
sent to jan at Orangeburg to await trial for
"assault and battery with Intent to kill." On
the case being called at the October session of
the court, she plead guilty to tho entire charge,
and was sentenced to thirty days. in jail. Is
this an adequate punishment lor a crime like
this ? A young, Inoffensive and estimable
lady nearly killed; laid up in bed for along

THE TRIENNIAL EPISCOPAL CON?
Representation of Missionary Juris?
TWELFTH DAT-OCTOBER 17.
The committee on unfinished business,
through the Rev. Wm. Payne, D. D., ot the
Diocese of Albany, reported that upon review
of the Journal of 1868, they find the following
are the principal matters which require action
on the part of this house:
1. The proposed additional cycle, (see p. 79,
2. The proposed amendment to the jth arti?
cle of the constitution, (see p. 136.)
Several subjects are in the hands ol commit?
tees, who may be expected to report to this
convention, viz :
"On communication with the Russo-Greek
Church." (p. 140.)
"Ou Italian reform movement," (p. 103.)
"On republication of early Journale," (pp.
"Ona new hymnal," (p. 147.)
"To examine proof-sheets of standard Bi?
ble," (pp. 120,121.)
"On friendly Intercourse with the Church of
Sweden," (p. 167.)
Committees were also appointed to report to
this convention on
"The German translation of the prayer?
book." (p. 161.)
"The French translation of the pwyer
book," (p. 161.)
"The Swedish translation of the prayer?
book." (p. 161.)
The committee on the prayer-book were
ordered te report to this convention on sever?
al subjects which it ls thought unnecessary to
REPRESENTATION" OF MISSIONART JURISDICTION.
Rev. Mr. McNamara, of Nebraska, moved to
take up the canon reported from the commit?
tee on canons, admitting to seats in the
house deputies from missionary Jurisdiction?,
which was agreed to.
The chair announced as the committee to
prepare a fraternal address to the Disestablish?
ed Church of Ireland : Rev. Drs. Perry and
Adams and Mr. McCrady.
Judge Battle, of North Carolina, being en?
titled to the floor on the pending question,
contended that to admit representatives of
missionary jurisdictions would be contrary to
the constitution, and claimed further that
there was DO necessity for such admission.
Mr. Ruggles, ot New York, combatted the ar?
guments of Judge Battle, declaring that lhere
was no constitutional prohibition, and that lt
will be for the good and the benefit of the
church to admit these representatives.
The subject was then laid over to consider
the order of the day, which was the report of
the joint committee on theological education,
as iollows :
"The joint committee appointed at the last
General Convention, Ho consider the present
state of theological education In this church,
and the means for its facilitation and improve?
ment, and to report thereon at the next Gen?
era! Convention,' ask leave to respectfully re?
"No more Important topic can engage the
attention ot ibis convention or of this church
than that ot the training ot our clergy. No
age and no country has made or can make
stronger demands upon our best efforts to se?
cure the best results in this regard than our
own age and our own country. The commit?
tee do not care to weary the convection with
details or arguments. They simply desire to
call attention to the Immense Importance ol
the subject committed to them, and to urge
the necessity of advanolng Interests so vital
to the church.
"After careful deliberation they have arrived
at the conclusion that the only effectual mode
of reaching the desired end ls by a revision of
the canons relating lo holy orders and to or?
dination. These resolutions are of small ajvall.

for the most part unseen and unheard of, and
exercising no living, working Influence on the

nons, and recommend their adoption by the
Rev. Dr. Hare, of Pennsylvania, said the
amended canons proposed by the committee
had been written by Bishop Whittingham. He
might say that they met the unanimous ap?
proval of the committee, and he moved that
they be taken up In regular order. The canons
proposed to be amended are from canon 2 to
canon 9, inclusive
Canon 2, as proposed to be amended, was
then read by ihe secretary, which provides
regulations as to the admission ot persons as
candidates for holy orders, as to the grounds
of desire for admission to the ministry, attain?
ments, character, the manner of application
for admission, Ac, attachment to the doctrine,
discipline and worship of the Protestant Epis?
. Rev. Dr. Hare said the present canon on the
admission of candidates to the ministry was
almost unintelligible, and the committe? had
desired in the amended canon to simplify the
regulations, and to provide as far as possible
against ihe admission of Improper candidates.
Rev. Dr. Goodwin, of Pennsylvania, moved
to strike out "postulant'' wherever it occurs,
and Insert "applicant." He did not think it
expedient that young men desiring admission
to holy orders should be met at the threshold
with these learned words, which are seldom
used. He did not think the inward desire
which might be felt by any one for admission
to the ministry made him a "postulant."
Rev. Dr. Hare said the commitiee bad not
instructed him to be tenacious of words, but
lie would say In reierence to the criticism on
the word "postulant," that If any one desir?
ing admission to the ministry knew so little of
the Latin tongue as to be Ignorant of the
meaning of the word "postulant," it might
well suggest doubts as to the sufficiency of his

Considerable discussion was bad as to the
propriety ol requiring the applicant for admis?
sion to receive a letter of approval from his
spiritual pastor or rector belore giving notice
of his Intention to the bishop of the diocese,
and it was said that a rector might at some
lime be in a morbid state of mind and discour?
age those who might seek his counsel as to
entering the ministry. Finally an amend?
ment, offered by Judge Shelley, ot Virginia,
providing that the bishop may, tor satisfactory
reasons io himself, admit the applicant to can
didateship without a letter of approval- from
hiB rector, was adopted.
The house adjourned at 3 P. M., with canon
two still under consideration. The amended
canons, as proposed, cover thirty-two printed
pages, and at the adjournment the tourth page
only bad been reached. The subject comes up

BURSTING A KU-KLUX BUBBLE.
The Alleged Whipping of Mr. Batten?
berg-an Indignant Denial from the
The following letters appear in the last issue
of the Sumter News:
SUMTER, October 16.1871.
Mr. Editor-The Columbia Daily Union, in
Its Issue of the 2d inst., contained an extract
(as he says) from a letter from Sumter, writ?
ten on Saturday, September 30th, saying that
a store-keeper by name of Rettenberg, liv?
ing fifteen miles from Sumter, was taken on
Friday night previous, and terribly whipped
by the Ku-Klux. and for no other reason than
his being a Republican. My attention was
first called to that article by Mr. Paxton, of
the Sumter Watchman; and being satisfied
that the malicious and slanderous report
alluded to me, I requested him to deny the
same through his paper, and made the same
request of the editors of the Sumter News,
both as regards the whipping and my being a
Republican, and stated to tuem at that time
that I was called upon three weeks previously
by some gentlemen In djsgulse, (whoever
they were I do not know)" wno requested to
see me, and assured me they would not harm
me In the least, tn either person or property,
and merely requested me to stop buying seed
cotton. And on my giving them an affirma?
tive answer, they rode off, and I have never
seen them since.
Both the Sumter Watchman and the Sumter
News have done me the justice to deny my
being whipped through their columns, but the
Columbia Union still slicks to the lie. On the
5th Instant, I wrote L. Cass Carpenter, the edi?
tor and proprietor ot the Union, requesting
him to give me the name of his correspondent
who wrote that letter, but receiving no reply,
on the 9th Inst., I learned from Mr. J. N. Cor?
bett, who had Just returned from Columbia,
that Mr. Carpenter was not there, and advised
me to write to Mr. Everson, who was then
editing the Union, which I did that day, and
made the same request from him as I did from
Mr. Carpenter. And on the 11th instant, I re?
ceived the following rerly from Mr. Carpenter,
[see letter.] On the 12th instant, I lurnlsbed
nlm sufficient proof that I was the person
alluded to, by letter from J. N. Corbett, county
auditor, certifying there being but one family
of Ryttenbergs in this county, and denying the
outrageous report. Also, by a letter from Ma?
jor Wm. F. DeKnight, assistant assessor Inter?
nal revenue, [see bis letter below,] who Is a
personal friend of E. W. Everson, sub-editor
ot the Union, and yet to this date, ample ttme,
he certainly had, to give rae the correspond?
ent's name, but has not. Why ? Because he
knows lt to be a fte, and tries to shield him by
not giving his name.
Now, Mr. Editor, having tried, but In vain,
to obtain the correspondent's name, who
wrote that slanderous and untruthful report
about me, I denounce him, whoever he may
be, as no gentleman, but a mean, contempta
ble scoundrel and liar, and the editor who
affirms the responsibility of his correspondent
and still refuses to give his name, thereby In?
flicting upon me the grossest Injustice and
wrong, aa unworthy the confidence of high
toned or honest men. H. RTTTENBERQ.

COLUMBIA., October ll, 1871. j
H. Ryttenberg-Dear Sir : Yours ls at hand,
asking the name of the correspondent who
furnished the information to the whipping of
one Rettenberg. Before I can comply with
your request lt will be necessary for you to
prove to me that you are the person alluded
to. Any person can write over the signature
Truly, yours, L. CASS CARPENTER.
[Letter from Major Wm. F. DeKnigatl
SUMTER, October ll, 1871.
Major E. W. Everson-Dear Friend: In an
Informal way I will state to you all I know
about the Rettenberg affair. That he luis been
visited by K. E. he himself made no secret.
He openly stated that they called on, and con?
strained him to stop buying seed cotton,
threatening to compel him if he refused, but
on his complying using no violence. That,
however, occurred some time (at least three,
weeks) bet?re the report of the whipping,
which is Dositlvely denied, and has for some
time been generally discredited here. It cer?
tainly does great harm to so hastily give pub?
licity to such a report, without it being posi?
tively known to be true. Hearing the rumor
myself in the morning your corresDondent
wrote, I questioned Mr. Ryttenbete's nrother
here as to the fact, and he at once denied the
whole occurrence. Truly, yours.

peace, and strUes down one loved one of the

he hovera over that fold wnere but one lamb is
'?watched and tended," and ruthlessly chooses
his victim ! This thought is suggested by the
event which it ls now our mournful doty to an?
nounce. Death has entered a happy borne, where
a fond father and a tender mother bave been
called upon to bid farewell to their young, and
beautiful, and promising offspring-the only
chilli of their affection-in the early dawn of his
life, lent to them for a brief season only, and
taken from them as a bud here, to blossom In
Ueaven. Noble and manly we knew him In life.
Gentle and ptre and lovely were bis character
aud disposition. Tru'y may it be said, ' None
knew him but to love him." vte see him now in

from temptation, safe from sii.'e-polluiion. There
ne lives, clothed with celestial grace, and there
he waits to greet his loved ones1 of this world,
when their earthly course ls run.
