Hardly a week passes but that it

the demise of somo weary pilgrim on

dread summons of death has fallen

We don't believe that any particu
lar name has yet been assigned to the

"Briggmanu's Folly," and wo doubt
not but that our ex-mayor could now

little more folly in the street Hue
anight still be beneficial.

T. A. Jeffords, Esq., has become

in the store at the corner of Railroad

Mr. Albergotti, who has a host of
friends, will continue with him as an

On last Thursday night we had the

As we entered the church, we were
charmed with the attractive appear

of singing and recitations by some of
After this came tho preset.lation of
prizes, taken from the tiee by Mr. W.
A. Edwards, and presented to tho
children by Mr. Cuttino. This was
an interesting part of tho perform

hardly largo enough to carry them
selves up the oislo without assistance.
Mrs. Norris, the pastor's wife, was
the recipient of a, neat token of affec

As soon as all the names were called
out, the remainder of the articles*on
the tree, consisting of sugar plums
and other nice things, were thrown
promiscuously among the children
In conclusion a beautiful/hymn was
sung, and the children, with their
guests, repaired to the Young Ameri
ca Hall, Where they did justice to the
splendid supper prepared for them.
The Christmns tree was to have
taken place at the appropriate season,
but was postponed until this night in
consequence of the niensles.
This school has beeu gradually
growing, and wo hope it will continue
to prosper, as the Sunday-school, if
properly conducted, is a powerful aux

On Thursday last the public mind
was somewhat excited by the rumor
of a collision between Mr. B. William
sou, a clerk iu the treasury office, and
iormerly chief clerk of Humbert, the
defaulting treasurer, and Mr. A. E.
Webster, the editor of the Free Citi
It appears that Mr. Williamson
called ut Judge Knowlton'3 office,
where Mr. Webster attends to his
duties as trial justice, aud entered
into a conversation with irim. Ac
cording to the account of persons, who
were standing at some distance, the
conversation seemed to be progressing
pleasantly, and no difficulty was an
ticipated, when suddenly Mr. Wil
liamson raised bis slick, a formidable
weapon, and struck Mr. Webster a

Mr. Webster got hisstick in defensive
position; but when he did, the chances
of war seemed to be equally balanced,
until bis stick broke, when the for

I At this point the constable was
called, and Mr. Williamson went off,
aud, we believe, delivered himself up.
Mr. Webster was badly hurt, re
ceiving several severo blows on the
head, and one on the arm, which
he used in trying t<. ward off the blowy.
Dr. Dukes was called in and dressed
The difficulty is said to have growu
out of an article on "County Affairs,"
in the Free Citizen of Jauuary 30th, I
in which Mr. Webster commented
freely upon Mr. Williamson, as Hum
bert's chief clerk.
The conversation which passed be

According to the published account
in the Free Citizen, Mr. Webster of
fered to Mr. Williamson, if he bed
misrepresented him, to correct any
mifstntement he had made, or to pub
lish a card from Mr. Williamson, if
! he desired, denying what Humbert
bad told him; to which "Mr. William
son replied that he did not wish his
name used in connection with Hum
bert's in this affair."
The public will be glad to learn
that Mr. Webster is gradually recov
ering from his wounds, and will soon
be at his post.
The argument of might should
never be endorsed.
On Monday morning four suspi
cious characters were taken up and
examined by our mayor, but nothing
being found about them to warrant
their detention, they we^o conducted
by the marshals to the corporate lim
its and instructed to go about their
business, if they had any, and also
warned that if they were caught loit
ering about tpwii again, they would
be taken up and trented under the va
grant law. Our mayor is sometimes
put to bis wit's end with these itiner

time ago, with a sharp aud insolent
Irishmnn, who knew so much that it
was thought ndvisablo to dispenso
with him as quickly as possible.
