For many days past our agod fellow
oitizen David Whitmcr, lingered, on
tbe very brink of Hie grave waiting for
the summons, but it did not come until
yesterday evouing, at o'clock, when
spirit winged It way Into the Infinite.
David Whitmer was born in Harris-
burg, Pennsylvania. January 7th, HM5.
consequently in his 83rd year. Ho pos
sessed a remarkably robust cunstitution
which added to his habit of activity aud
temperate living prolonged his life
beyond four score. Ho lived in Rich
mond about half a centnry, and we can
say that no man ever lived here, who
had among our people, mora friends
and fewer enemies. Honest, conscien
tious snd upright in all his doalings,
just In bis estimate of men, and open,
manly aud frank in his treatment of
all, bo made lasting friends who loved

When a youth he moved to Ontario

to Julia Ann Jolly, on January 9th

moved to Par West, Caldwell countv.
Missouri and from there to Richmond

He was the last to go of the three wit
nesses to "the divine authenticity of
the record of the Neuhites." and as the
ulstory of this Book of Mormon is not
much known, we think this a fitting
occasion to repont what Mr. Whitmcr
uas often said on tbe subject, taken iu
part from an article written by Joe
Johnson of the Piattsburg Demoorat.
When be was ii years of age and
working on bis father's farm near Pal
myra, New York, all that section ol
the country was more or less excited
orer the reported discovery by Jseuii4
amttti of tbe gold plates from which
the Book of Mormon was translated.
Oliver Cowdery, tbe village school
eaclitr, mentioned the matter to him
and announced his determination to
visit Smith and investigate the matter
for himself, promising Mr. Whitmcr,
at the latter' s request, to advise him
of the result. A few days later be re
ceived a letter from Cowderv, urging
iiim to join him, which he did, being
received by the "prophet" with open
arms. After remaining long enough
to satisfy himself of

where It was agreed that tho work of
translation should be prosecuted.
Suortly after his return, and while
ue was plowing in the held one after
noon, he was visited by Smith and
Juw dery, who requested that he should
..coouipany them into the woods on a
uili across thu road for the purpose of
witnessing a manifestation that sbould
uaiify he and Cowdery to bear witness
o the divine authenticity of the Book
of iiormon, Smith explaining that such

seemingly enveloping the wood for a
considerable dialauce. A spirit of ele
vation seized bim as of Joy indescriba
ble aud a strange influence stole over
aim which so entraued him that he felt
ibat he was chained , to the spot. A
moment later aud a divine personage
clothed in white raiment appeared unto
them, aud immediately iu frout of the
personage stood a table on which lay a
number ol goia plates, some brass
plates, the "urliu and thummim" and
tbev'sword of Labon." All of these
tbey were directed to examine carefully
and after their examination they were
Uild that the Lord would demand that
THEY BEAK WITNESS TUEItKOY
To all the world. These plates were
engraved with characters termed in the
book of Mormon "reformed Egvptiau,"
characters unknown to the linguists of
the present day, which is claimed as a
fulliluient of the propeoy of Isaiah:
And the word of tu Lord has be
come unto them as the leaves ol a book
which are sealed, aud wuica is deliv
ered unto him that is learned, saying:
Head tills, 1 pray tnee, and he aayelh.
I cannot, for It is sealed," etc.
A slip of paper containing a fao sim
ile of these characters, traced by Joseph
Smith, was submitted to the oelebrated
Professor Anton and others aud all
confessed their inability to traualate
tliem, recognizing in them character
istics of seveias ancient alphabets.
This slip Is still in Mr. Whitmer's pos
session and is cherished with the same
saored care that he bestows on the orig

Tho urlin and thnmnum was taken

he again found favor Willi the Lord
and was presented with a strange oval
shaped, chocolate colored stone, about
the size of an egg but more fiat, which
it was promised should answer the
same purpose, n ltb this stone all the

prophet would place the stone in a bat,
then put his face in the hat aud read
the words thst appeared thereon.
This stone Is the ouly relic of the

was couilded to Oliver Cowdery anil

The trsln robbery, or rather the at

as having occurred on Wednesdav
nightol lait work, just this side of Ml
sourl City, was so promptly nipped In
tho bud, as to make the airalr almost
fis?ln. It seems that Barney Sweeney,
a penitentiary bird, formed a plot with
two men named John Hargruve and
John Drew to rob the train at the
time mentioned. Tbe plan was to fluff
the (mill, make the engineer stop, and
then secure all the valuables in the ex.
press car- The last named of tbe
above gave the whole , tbe whole
thing away and officers with a posse
iroui Missouri city were on

were raptured, and the two who were
