A Sunday Row. A disgraceful fight
took place last Sunday afternoon at the
S. & M. 8. depot, in , which George
Stewart and Joseph Anzer exchanged
some heavy blows. It appears that An
zer was quietly crossing the street to his
house, in company with some of his chil
dren, when he was- attacked by Stewart,
who is said to have been under the influ
ence of liquor. Anzer returned the at
tack, and the result was. Stewart received
a sound thrashing. Tbey were both ar
rested and locked up, and were brought
before Mayor Talcott Monday morning.
Stewart's fine and cost amounted to $18.30
and Anzer's about $7.
The N. O. Fair is to have some good
stock from this county. Mr. Calviu
Dodge, of New Lyme, sent np an import
ed two year old, short-horn bull, on Sat
urday last an imported animal, which
was a beauty. His name is Royal George,
weighs 1,540 pounds, is of the dark, devon
color, symmetrical in form, with a fore
leg tapering from the swell, or calf, to the
small ankle, with all the grace of the best
formed human, a true line along the back,
and a tail not larger than a small sized
broom stick-all the markes and evidences
of the full blooded animal.
Mr. 8. C. Smith, who has one of the
best small herds of short horns in the
county descriptions of which have been
given in these columns, as they have been
added carred twenty head all but two
of the whole number on Monday. In
bulls, of which he has a two and a three
year old, heifers and milch cows, these
specimens will be hard to beat. These are
all the blooded cattle that we have heard
of as going from this county.
The Cleveland papers inviegh against
the undue use of the steam whistle, which
had become such a nuisance that the
council passed an ordinance to regulate
and restrain the annoyance. In the face
of this ordinance, however, the Herald
say 8, "Locomotives still whistle, tugs
shriek, propellers scream, factories pipe,
and the "steam devil," oyer cmong the
oil refineries bellows its dreadful morn
ing greeting, just as If no ordinance had
ever been passed."
We sometim"8 think the amusement of
playing with the whistle is a favorite one
with engineers, and that our tympanums
have to do a world of unnecessary vibra
tion, even here in Ashtabula. That branch
of the whistling business done at the har
bor, which floats up to the village in the
subdued and subduing cadences of dis
tance, accompanied by the puffing and
cooing of tngs, is not only free from
the objections of the village whistling,
but is really musical, and falls graciously
upon the ear."
A Lamentable Accident occurred on
Friday night last, by which Stella, aged
22, daughter of Mr. Bridgeman, one of
Fisk, Silliman & Co.'s millers, lost her
life. Being somewhat indisposed, the de
ceased was under the treatment of Dr.
Bartlett, and her mother, after being np
with her until midnight, retired at Stella's
request, supposing that she would be able
to get through the night without assist
ance. The parents both dropped to sleep
and did not wake until five in the morn
ing. On going to the sick one, she could
not be found. After considerable search,
the body was found in about fonr feet of
water, but a few feet from the shore of the
mill pond in the rear of the house, which,
stands on the brink of the bank, at the
head of Mill Hill. She appears to have
arisen in her Light-clothes, gone into the
yard, and probably made a miss-step off
the precipitous bank in the rear, and such
being the abruptness of the descent, prob
ably did not stop until within a few feet
of the water. The ruggedness of the de
scent is indicated by the bruises and
scratches upon the body, face and limbs.
A track was left of her bare feet on the
edgeof Hie water, but whether stunned,
disabled, or bad temporarily lost her men
tal balance, U not known. The body was
found by Hank Mennell by wading Into
the turbid water and reeling the body
with his feet. The deceased had been an
invalid for years from spinal affection, but
a year or so back had recovered iu aga Qr
her limbs, and has since been enabled to
walk about comfortably. Bhe was an
ouly child and the comfort of her parents.
Her loss, of course, in this sudden man
ner, is an affliction to them, and one in
wblau the community deeply sympathize.

Wm. Bowman, of Savbrook. was entered
on Friday of last week, while Mr. Bow

thimbles, &c, and several articles of fe
male apparel. The spoons were marked-
Bowman. The articles were offered for

which led to his arrest, and the holding
of the goods. A notice of the affair ap

THE COUNTY FAIR.
The Fair at Jefferson closed on Fri
day last, and an attendance on that day
enabled us to form a favorable opinion of
it. The cattle, of course, were driven off
at the close of the second day, as usual, so
that nothing can be said of that depart
ment further than what was told us by
some of the officers of the society, who
said, that, in this respect, the show was
rather light and meagre. A cursory
glimpse at the display in the Hall, was
vi-ry gratifying. Every department was
well supplied, and the articles of a goi-d
character. Competition was not stinted.
One feature of competition that we no
ticed, is too frequently neglected, aid
therefore should be noticed, and that is,
the display of goods from the stores of
merchants. The Messrs. Beckwitb had a
fine show of dry goods, and a case of la
dies' boots and shoes, that filled a very
important niche. We noticed some very
good pictures, both in oil and photograph
ic. Among the first, was a landscape, by
Miss Rogers of this town, that was a
work of considerable merit. It took tne
first premium. We were, howeyer,
especially taken by a portrait, by
Walkley, of Morgan, of I. Champion, de
ceased, thrown up from a photograph, for
ex-Mayor Wilcox. This was a work of
more than common merit, being of fine
coloring and workmanship, and faithful
and striking as a likeness. The young
artist, who has spent several months in
this village, and taken pictures of several
of oar citizens, Is taking a high stand in
his profession. If the application and
good taste that marks his present course,
is not Interrupted, with the years that are
before him, properly improved, the re.
wards of an enviable reputation can
hardly be doubtful.
The horse show was decidedly good.
especially of staliions and trotting stock.
The trials of speed in the afternoon elicit
ed much interest and watch i u less. Among
the Ashtabulians there was special in

Field had both bit roan horse and bay
mare on the ground, and Haskell his
dark chestnut gelding, Prince. These all
did well considering the amount of pro
fessional handling tbey have bad re
spectively. Fred Field the roan, did not
do as well as was expected. Horsemen,
say that he had had too much driving
before going upon the track. At any
rate he was a Utile dull, and not in the
exercise of his usual spirit. The bay
Kate Field, did ber work well. She has
tlie good quality of steadiness and faith

young and improving with the service
given ber. She has a good future before
her. Prince, the Haskell horse, surprised
most of his friends by his 'fine gait and
splendid performance. He was clearly the
best footing horse on the course aud if
it bad not been for lue bad breaks he
made, would have been master of the
field. His only competitor was Kins
man Bay, Case's four year old stallion.
The great merit of this stallion is in his
steady perseverance. He is, however, a
fine stepper, but Prince had the advan
tage of him in reach, .which was shown
as they, took the stretches together, in the
way Prince would pass him in a fair,

his honors carried off by inferior competi
tors. He had, a day or two before, made

a difference of opinion on a lower figure.

P. Wade, while the Field Horses were
driven by Charley Smith.

Beside the attractions here noticed, it
would be hardly doing justice to the
County Fair to omit the presence upon
the ground, of the inimitable Tom Tul
ler, with his unique collection of speci
mens in natural history. He has a rare
collection, besides that buffalo' heifer.
No one would ever think of doing up a
county fair, without passing through and
familiarizing himself with this institu
tion. Tuller is a genius, and without him,
the show would be somewhat tame 'and
uninteresting. You need to see him hand
ling the ribbons over that heifer, small
clothes, buttons, and all, to get a true idea
and appreciation or the whole thing.
The Lnox Band discoursed music for
the county fair.
Hambletonian stock carried of the palm
in these contests.
