An interestlng Incldent has just becn related
to ns by a Williamstown poldier ln the rebel
lion. In the summer of 1801, ho waa dolng
duty ln a provost marshal'a oillce in Winchef
ter, Va. One day the guard brought ln a fine
looklnglady, who "wished admisslon 'through
our llnes to visit her mother," llvlng not vory
Xar off. Tho questlon of grantlng her wlsh
was diBcussed by the niarshal and hls clerk,
tho Wllllamstownlan, tho former favorlng' it,
the latter opposlng. After an examination of
the caso, and finding only a small quantity of
quinlno ln tho lady's possesslon, permisslon
was given her to do as eho wished, nnd the
clerk accompanled her carriage to the ltne,
somo three or fonr mlles dlst&nt. Klno or ten
years passed, when one evenlng as onr friend
was at the house of hls brother, near Now
York clty, a lady, known to thls brother'B
famlly, callcd, and ho was introduced to her,
Sho recognlzcd him nt once, as ho dld her,
though not obloto " place" her. Immediately
eho eald. "I have seen tho tlmo I could run a
knlfe through you," and ho then remembered
her as the lady he met at tho provost marahal'B
otllce in Winchester ln 18G1. A plfeasant even
lng was passed together, ln wbich tho ovent
waarecailed. She was a eouthern woman, but
tho wlfo of n New York lawyer, hlmself a
warm Union man, while she waa thoroughly n
rebel. On the occasion alluded to she had
como from Washington, D. C, and whlle want
ing really to see her mother, she had her
sklrts filled nnd qullted wlth medicines for the
soldiers iu a rebel hospital not far olT. She
told our friend that sho hadresolved, if he had
prevented her from gettlng through the llnes,
to take hls llfe, as he shuuld accompnny her
back whlch ho would have to do, aome dls
tance. When eleven o'clock arrived, to putan
ond to the later pleasant interview, our friend
.ttold her tbat if sho hadn't a knlfe about hor
"" lie would accompany her home, a politeness
that she aBsurcd him would be entlroly safe,
and thus endcd thelr Becond and last inter
view, tho woman havlng slnce dled,
Deatji has been busy ln our mtdst tho last
week. The first to fall was Mrs Edson Martin,
on Sunday, the 10th lust. She bad been very
f eeble for montha, but it was hoped when sho
left her farm and movetl to her new house in
the villago last spring, that she might be bet
ter, but thls hope was disappoluted, 1'erhaps
the loss ot no other woman in our town would
be more generally, or more Bincerely mourned
than Mrs. Martin's. It comes witu especial
weight upon tho Methodist church, of which
she was ao long a falthful member. Her last
legacy to the causc of religion the best any
ono can glve was her llfe. But eho and her
husband, tho lato Kdson Martin, haviug no chll
drcn, lefta handsome legacy ln the way of flnan
clal help to thia cause, it being a large part of
the earmngs of a auccessf ul lif e, the use ol which
is to go perpetually to the Methodist church.
She was nearly sixty-four years of nge....
The next to foiiow was C. Ilolloway Herrill,
who died of cancer in the etomach on Friday
mornlng last. Ile wan a brother-in-law of Mr.
Kdson Martin, equally beloved and equally
mourned, waa for many years an earnest mem
ber and olllcer of the Methodist church here.
Such exprosslons as, " Ho waa a good man;"
"Wehave met wlth a great lo.-s;" "lt Is a
loss to the town," that have been falling from
the lips of his townsmen aince his death test
ify to tho universal euteem in whlch ho was
held. His own church feel that ono of its
8trongest plllars haa been removed, He was
lifty-nlne years of age....On Friday last Mrs.
Jonatban Lewis died at the advauced age of
eighty-four years and aix montbs. Sho has
long been a well known residcnt of our place,
the last two years of her lifo having been years
of great feebleness; years whlch make hor
niece, I.uclnda Waldo, who has had tlie con
stant care of her nlght and day, teeni nothlog
less than n herolne, in thls care for her; years,
too, which have brought out tho luster, iiner
than gold, of tho neighborly qualitles of Mr.
and Mrs. Warren l'oole, deeda worthy to be
held in perpetual remembrance. Muy it be
meted out to them wlth the same reudineea
