^?Ifc is our std duty to record the
death of the vcncrablo Colonel Josiau
Bigelow, which occurred at his late
residence, in thin place, on tho night
of the 7th inBt. He had b:ca ailing
for somo years, and freauontly spoke
of his belief that he would Boon "shuffle
this mortal coil f bat none of his
intimate friends supposed that his end
was to near. After dark on the night
of his death, he seomed nnusually
cheerful, and talked with several gen
tlemen He lived aloue in a small
house on Second Street, on Mr. Ral
ston's property ; and about 10 o'clook,
some of tho latter gentleman's family
heard tho Colonel opening a fruit-can,
but 03 he was rather eccentrio in bis
habits, no notioo was taken of the
noise.- On the morning of tho 8tb,
howevor, when a young colorod boy
went to take him his breakfast, ho
found him lyiBg dead upon the floor.
Dra. Dent and Simpson were immedi
ately summoned, and after an examin
ation of tho body, they gave it as their
opinion that ho had diod suddenly from
congestion?and that his death had
been so sudden that he never knew it
or suffered any pain whatever. He
had ovidently died without a struggle.
Colonel Bigelow was 80 years of age
i%Deoemberlast. He was a Pennsyl
vanian by birth, and was ? gallant sol
dier in the war of 1812, having served
as a aergoant during that struggle in
the 32a> United Suites Infantry. In
1810 be camo to Virginia, and re
mained two years in Richmond, from
whence he moved to Winchester,where
he beoamo a member of Hiram Lodgo,
'A. P. and A. M. At the time of his
death he had been a Mason 54 years
Abonb 1821 Colonel Bigelow* was of
fered and accepted a position in the
Faculty of the University of Virginia,
where - he remained somo years; and
after a sojourn in some of the more
Southern states, he returned to Char
lottesville* where he became Master of
the Charlottesville Lodge. By his de
votion to the tenets- of Masonry,, and
his rate talent a3 an inattaotor in *hu
work, he became a leader ia the Fra
torn it*, and after holding the position
of District Deputy Grand Master, he
was honored for many years by the po
sition of Deputy Grand Master of the
f^ate.r-Io 1848 he removed to Buck
hannon, then in Lewis county, but
subsequently came to this place. After
die formation of tho new 8tate, he bo
urne to West Virginia Masons what
9ove has beon to the Fraternity in the
Old Dominion. Had ho not promptly
lined.to servo' be would have wen
first Masonio Grand Mastor in
West Virginia. Ho was too modest to
seek high position, but cont ntcd him
self with working to eccaro the advance
ment of the best interests of the Order
ho loved so well, and the happiness and
prosperity of his brethren. In this
portion of the Stato, no man was so
ptuoh revered among.Masons as Colo
nol Blgriow. Tbeljodjjeat Philippi
is named after him; while the mem
bers of the Fraternity at Baokbannon,
Beverley, Clarksburg, Shinnston, and
other points looked upon him almost as
i father. His opinion was standard
authority in matters of Masonio juris
irudoaco ; and by nis deatu is swopi
iway probably tho oldest (and certainly
he most experienced) member of tho
iVaternity vest of the Bluo Ridge.^
Colonel Bigelow bad never married,
lo was essentially a literary man; and
lelighted more in tbe pleasures of study
bra in tbe gayiticB of life. Ho bad n
jc?n songs of the beautiful; and was
bo moet accomplished musician, bofore
)1J ago robbedJjim of his vigor, that
was known in this or tbe old State.
' As a oitizon ho was quiett and unob
xusive?as a man ho was pure and up

Law, of this connty, who graduated at
that time. Subsequently, by request,
Mr. Law read the poem at the Com

School. A general dc6iro has been
expressed that it should be printed ;
and as it is a production of real tnorit,
wo surrender tho space necowary for
its publication: .
IT nil Columbia, Happy Land !
From arctic seas to Patagonia's strand,
Like eaglo great with wido extended wings,
Whose gloomy sight to fowl dread horror
Thou sprcadest far out o'er the mighty deep,
Along thy shores two ocean's billows sweep
With one continued swelling gwif t they roll
With restless ebb,and flow from pole to polo.
And all degrees of climate, too, theu hast,
From summer broezo to winter's chill and
The back untading summer always gilds,
Thy alas tips perpetual winter chills.
High heaved and massive on thy southern
Tho grim and tow'ring Andes mountains
Whose suow-cappedjpeaks above the mists
Look fortl to' greet tho rising king of day,
Volcanoes here, with fitful, thundering roar.
Adown their sides their liquid billows pour.
Bat here,encircled by theso mountain? wilds,
Clear Fiticaca's verdant region smiles.
Upon the east swift coursiug to the main,
Three mighty rivers flow across the plain.
Our proud MonongaheJa's winding stream,
Would by their side a meagre brooklet
Although those mountain height 8 are ftiliof
Of silver, diamonds, gems and wealth un
Although those plains are rich and fair to
Thoy lack the work of educated man.
But leave my mose this wide extended clime
By nature stamped with all she owns sub
Now to the north my wand'ring vision turns,
Where Mexico with tropic seasons burns.
Her mountain peaks are also lull of geld,
Her lovely valleys strewn with wealth un
And dashing proudly 'gainst her eastern
The surging billows of the Great Gulf roar.
Upon whose broad and tolling spacious tide,
The thronging fleets of various nations ride.
Here fertile isles their rich luxuriance pour,
And western dainties crown tho eastern
Vet this my high ideal can't suffice :
I seek yet lovelier climes, yet milder skies.
Bshold where J/lssissippi's sluggish tide,
With mightv rivers wedding both its sides,
Flows grandly on adown the spreading plain
To dangle.with and swell the neighboring
Herejicro are nature's fairest,cboiccst fields?
A lovelier view tuis earth nowhere reveals.
High ranging 'long the misty eastern skies,
The lolly A ppalachian mountains rico;
While grimly stretching for along the west,
Tho Rocky Ranges left their rugged crest.
Thus mountain, and valley, hill and dalo
With rise and fall,extend far toward the polo.
Five hundred years ago, in all this clime,
No white mau's voice poured forth its echo
But hew the dusky lover woo'ed his mate,
Not by the light of lamp or flaming grate,
But by 'he misty light of rising moon,
His maiden's brow was decked with gay
Yet sad ?o sad it If to strike the lay,
That tells their joy and peace all swept away.
For from the sunrise o'er the deep there came
A mightier race, with more exalted name
With three small ships and ninety men as
Columbus braved the deep and hither drew.
To all tho East the fact was then made known
That far away were lands besides their own.
With love for wild adventure?lost fur gold,
The public mind was raised to heights untold.
And thousands, disregarding lews of right,
Sought glory, wealth and nonor, by their'
Who, seising ou the Indians' hunting lands,
Brought death and swift destruction to their
Two huodrcd years and more have passed
Since lonely Pilgrims entered Plymouib Bay.
Inspired by Freedom's thought, borne on by
They nobly dared to cross the stormy seas.
This persecuted, bravo and piousbana,
^bught peace and refuge in a foreign land.
These were the noblo, lustv- sons of toll,
Who felled the forests, built neat homes and
tilled the soil,
Now cast your peering vision far and wide,
Where countless thousands peacefully reside.
For side by side close lie each sister State,
From Plymouth Rock to Eureka's Golden
And south from vast Superior's noble sheet,
To whero the Gulf and Mississippi meet
Hall happy States 1 thlno Is the blissful seat,
IFhere nature's gifts and art's improvements
Thy temperate air breathes health; thy fer
In copious plenty pays the Granger's toil.
Ask not fur mountains of Peruvian ore;
Nor strive for gold on California's shore;
For waving fields of golden grain outshino
The choicest ercs from out the richest mine.
Here busy commerce too unfurls hor sail,
Loads thousand barks and conrts the inland
Swift coursing up and down our winding
The breathing steamboat, floating palace
And through the mountain, down the wind
The locometive thunders o'er the rail.
From east to west with ceaseless puff and roar,
The iron-horse onward sweeps from shore to
While manufacturers from the 'busy East,
Make light the labors of the growing West;
And goodly products from the fertile West,
Weigh down the bounteous tables of the East
And broad plantations of the Sunny South,
With dainties crown the markets of the
IPhile countless products from the thronging
Are sent to bless the people of the South.
Thus North and South and East and West,
Bv strongest ties of peaceful union blest;
With hand in band can dwell in harmony,
Beneath that grand old motto?"Liberty."
Vet'twas by blood upon the battle field,
That this great liberty to us was sealed.
And let this fact inspire each patriot heart.
'Till Freedom's eon's shall nobly act their
To mako our glorious Union sure to stand,
And givcas lasting peace throughoutoui
To havo us prise our blood-bought liberty,
And ever dwell in one fraternity, ,
Our minds with useful knowledge must be
The box of truth in every heart instilled.
Let universal education be our cry.
Yea, let the chorus echo from the sky,
'Till all the restless earth from pole to pole,
In concord, peace and love, possess ono soul
