When twilight approaches, her quick car is bend

Obi if kindly jou greet bcr, with love gUnces
Hur troublit and care pass away with a sigh.
Remember bow kindly, when sickness befell thee,
Sho matched o'er thy couch with unwearied eye:
Remvmber, wlieu trouble and sorrow fell round
How she soothed thee, and bid nil nnlmppincss
Though years shc-uAd flit o'er thee, If trulj she
Tho love that throbs in lier true heart will not
O'er affections will triumph, she'll forgive thev and
Though, thy heart should grow cold, and thy
loudness grow strange.
Then love lier as fondly as when first you found
Ne'er let her doubt that your love is still true:
Fold vour strong, tnanlv arms closely sround her.
And breatho the fond wolds that you Hhisjiored
Oh I be kind to the dear one who watches thy
And guards thy fair home when danger is nigh:
Speak Kind words so .cheering u heru'er you may

Chicago, which be had been attending as a
del"gato. 1 was present at bis dentil, and
with oilier Irieuds and citizens of our
town, ncenmpauioit his remains lo 1', linos

ine; tho fust lawyer that ever settled ami
stayed here, ho may truly bo called tho
father of tho Defianco Har. Ho was nlso a
pioneer of the State. In 1 71)4 . under An
thony Wayne, his father was in the great
bat llo lhat fust secured tho while man
possession of and tillo to, the lands wu
occupy, and ho, helped lo construct tho
fort which gives uur tow n ils name. In
1800 ho settled on a farm near Panics ville,
ami there, on Ibo lClh day of April, 1812,
ll'Ui.vct-: Skssions- whs born. llo was u
vigorous, stout bov, ilcliehtlng In-ngricul-
tm-.il puivuits, nnd in watching tho hithils
and curing fr the animals reined upon llio
farm. Hut at tbo ago of twelve year, u
II rent misfortune belel him, llo was taken
down wilb a severo sickness, resulting in
a fever Korc that racked bis constitution,
ehaltered bis iiorvons; system, producing
untold pain, and crippled him through his
whole life. His father dying in .182", Inft
li i in U poor, crippled boy, and a. 'widowed
mother and sister in 'destiluto ciiciiin

to prociiro a living by the manual labor
incident lo farm work, bo reluctantly relin
quished b's favoiile culling, and cast about
to sen what ho cool, I do to mule o a living
fi r himself and his destitute relatives, lit)
choso our profession, liciug admitted to
tlio bur nt t):o age of twenty one, he first
went down the Ohio and Mississippi, as
far os Yick,burg, without liinling n satis,
factory location, when, returning, ho came
the Maiitnee Valley, and. arriving nt our
town in 18H:l,ho began tbo first practice of
his profession. licit meo, at that lime, was
tho county seat of Williams County,- and to
il was attached several other counties for
judicial purposes. Though tho field was
entirely open, Ihero being no other law
yer hero, professional business was very
limited, lint IIuuacu Skshons was poor,
he had a mission to fulfill, and ho would
not bo idle. In addition to his professional
duties ho wrote iu the county olliues und
taught in tbo district school. ' I seo several
present huro who, liko myself, havo hud
lil'e long business acquaintance with him ;
mine, perhaps, bns been the longest, and of
the most inliniiilo character. Thirty-three
years ngo, accompanying my father from
the Stale of New York ou a tour of explo
ration to tho Wabash, with an eye to a
settlement at Fort Wayne, we spent a week
or uioro, as wo were passing, at Defianco.
lim ing that week 1 fust bccaiuo acquainted
with Hoit.icK StcssiuN's, and 1 have often
since thought that acquaintance fixed my
destiny in thu choice of a future homo, and
brought me, a year later, to como bore to

room in tlie bhcoiui story oi me iuick

Defiance, which building wax the Couit
House, and, I may add, the school hoimo
and also llio meeting house of the village.
ii the same room was kept most ol tho
offices of tho county,' lie invited mo to
occupy tbo room with him, aud continue
the study of tho law, which I had before
begun. His bed wus in the same room, and
Ibis we occupied together. From that
time to the time of his decease, whilst a
generation of men have passed from earth,
we continuously lnvo occupied an office
From tho tinio bo came here, each sum
mor ho would go to the home of his aged
mother, consoling her with bis presence,
and giving lhat material aid that nlicved
the wauls of hers, II and family. Aud glad
was I tho other day, whilst assisting ut
Painesvillo in tho performance of tho last
duties to the deceased on earth, to hear un
aed and eminent statesman ot that place
say, " Mr. SmnoNS has been very generous
with his fdlbei's family : be has ever most
bonulihilly provided lor them."
At d here let rue say, hie generosity was
uot confined to his relatives ulouo, Iu all
bis deulings be vas liberal. Every char
itable eultjpriso and good cause be hclpod

only to make himself iinleiietiduut and to

as by fire. Here ami there one comes

stands erect a noblo specimen , of true
tn -iihooj. We hove occasionally witnessed
an example of courago in such a crisis, of
moral intrepidity, that deserved all honor.
