' - Sudden Death of George Beckwith Seised With Sadden Illness While 8 peak ing at English' Hall and Dying in a Pew Minntea Medical Attendance A Sketch at His litre and Career Beck, wlth's Almanac. Our readers will no doubt be surprised to learn of the death of George Beckwith, which occurred very suddenly last evening. It was Mr. Beckwith's custom to attend the gospel temperance meetings which are held on Mon day evenings in the conference room at Eng lish's Hall, corner of State and Court streets. He was present as usual last evening, and while others were speaking on his favorite theme he was an attentive listener. About ten minutes before nine o'clock he arose to ' address the meeting, and had said but a few words when he suddenly placed his right hand on his left breast and said: "Brethren, I feel a strange feeling coming over me." Those present observed that he turned deathly pale, and as he took his seat those that were near supported him. A messenger was sent for a physician, and in a few minutes Dr. Frank H. Whittemore was in attendance. Mr. Beckwith was laid upon the platform in the room on the doctor's ar-. rival, and after gasping once or twice ex pired. He had no pulse when the doctor arrived. After an examination Dr. 'Whitte more gave it as his opinion that the cause of Mr. Beckwith's death was organic disease of the heart. Coroner Hugh Dailey was notified, and after inquiry in regard to the facts con cluded that an inquest was unnecessary. Word was sent to Newton & Keiler, under takers, snd about 10 o'clock they removed the body to the late residence of the deceased, corner of Dixwell avenue and Henry street Word had previously been sent to the family of his sudden death, and when the body reached the house sympathizing friends and neighbors were in waiting to receive it. The aged widow of the deceased, while deeply feeling the sudden death of har companion in life, talked with great composure regarding his sudden death. When sorrow was ex pressed she said : "We ought not to sorrow, for he has gone to a better land gone where he will be appreciated. He will no more be called 'Old Beckwith,' but his life-long service in the cause of humanity win be honored and my loss is his eternal gain. I shall not remain here long, but will soon join him in the spirit land. " In conversation with Mrs. Beckwith she told our reporter that she had never heard him complain of heart diffi culties, although he had often said that he was troubled with excessive weariness and f aintness when he could see no real cause for it. There is no doubt but that the seeds of the disease which caused his death had for a long time been present in his system. Sketch of His Life. It would be difficult, probably impossible, to select a citizen more widely known in the community, and we might well add in the county, for his oddities and eccentricities singled him out at once for notice. If the white plume of Navarre was always conspicu ous in the thickest of the fight, it was not more so than the white hat of the deceased in our community, nor in any convention or gathering where the cause of prohibition was being fought, or any town meeting where some issue claimed his devotion and cham pionship. For many years he had been an outspoken advocate of prohibition, and never was an opportunity in late years of further ing the claims of no license neglected by him. His almanac, though mainly devoted to its chief object, was sure to contain some sharp, pithy thrust at "king alcohol" or the "tyran ny of rum," or some brief, pointed commen dation of total abstinence. If to go barefoot in the summer time and in one's shirtsleeves is a luxury, then the deceased fully enjoyed both, and as regular as the spring time gave place to the heat of summer, for many years past, he was looked for on the thoroughfares minus shoes and stockings, and often with out his coat the old white hat crowning the picture. He was a forcible speaker, and hard ly a session of the Legislature in late years when the temperance question was before it, but found the white hat and its wearer with in the halls of the State pleading for prohib itory laws. But the deceased will long be remembered as the author and publisher of Beckwith's Almanac, and the old white hat and familiar lineaments, invariably for many years past, figured in the title page. He had published the almanac for thirty-three years, and its merits gave it wide favor throughout the city and county, and further. ' 'Beck with's Almanac," like the name and face of its author, were as familiar as household words. He was a thorough mathematician, and gave great attention and care to all his work, taking a pride to accomplish well what ever he -undertook. Upon the title page of the almanac were also invariably the descrip tive words: "Calculated for Connecticut and adjacent States by George Beckwith, pho nographer, survivor of Beers, Middlebrbok & Prindle. " And now the honest-hearted suc cessor of those worthies has also passed away. The deceased was a native of Berlin, Conn., born July 10, 1810, making him just two days over 70 years. His parents re moved to Southington when he was a lad, and when a young man he came to New Haven. He was an eager seeker after knowledge and thirsted for information, and though he had few opportunities the result shows how well he applied himself. He leaves a wife, to whom he was married in this city thirty-eight years ago, and one daughter, Mrs. John J. Ewell, the medical clairvoyant, No. 281 Dixwell avenue, corner of Henry street, which was also the home of Mr. and Mrs. Beckwith. The deceased had been a resident of New Haven about forty-five years. He taught school about twelve years, firstin the npper part of the old frame building at the corner of Elm and Church streets, and afterward in the old frame building which stood on the corner of Church and George streets, long occupied by Mr. A. F. Wood, the druggist. . He taught boys arithmetic, bookkeeping, mathematics, etc., and it is said of him that he was the first teacher to take colored boys into a white school, this course exciting at the time some . opposition and causing him the loss of some of his patronage) a circumstance which had only the effect of strengthening his resolution in the matter. He was an earnest inquirer and believer in Spiritualism, and was ever courteously ready to give a reason for the faith that was in him. He had no particular desire to accumulate money and! was a liberal man in proportion to his means, and leaves but a small estate. After a long life he leaves many who will kindly remember him, and few if any who win not speak well of him. - '- Personal. Superintendent Stevenson returns to-day from a flying visit to western New York. Mr. Charles S. Elliot, his mother and sister and Miss Phelps arrived in New York from Paris Saturday night. Chief Webster went to Hartford yesterday, called there by the serious illness of his wife's mother, an aged lady and very feeble. ' The Taxes.

Under the new law in terest is added on all bills unpaid on the first day of August next at the rate of 9 per cent, per annum, or three-quarters per cent, per month, the interest to be charged from July 1st. ' Drowned While Bathing. Jeremiah Carroll, a deck hand of the steam er City of Lawrence, was drowned while bathing at Norwich Saturday ' evening, be tween 6 and 7 o'clock. He had been at work hard all day and 6 o'clock went down the river with two friends, William Nolan and Richard Silvay. He went into the water alone and had waded chest deep when he sud denly disappeared. He .vraa seen to rise once, bat made no effort whatever to save himself. It is supposed thai he was heated, and - was taken with cramps. He had been in this country bat nine months fsxtd in 'the employ of the steamer City of Lawrence but a short time. He had no relatives in America. He was born at Passes. ListoL County Kerry. Ireland, where his people now reside, in 1857, and was consequently but twenty three years of age. The remains were found in about f oar feet of water, near where he disappeared. : i Fierce Play of the Lightning. Striking In Twenty Different Places "and a Dotes Different TownsHones Killed, Bam Destroyed, Church, Factory And . .onses Struck. . , -: "' During the thunder storm of Saturday the lightning struck in many places besides those already given. Among them are the follow ing : It struck the printing office of Ralph. Bis ley's Son in Berlin, melted some of the type in each of 24 fonts, tore a brass syringe to pieces, touched a copper powder flask, but did not explode it, broke a glass bottle and cut up generally, and inmates of the house were slightly affected. ' In Bristol the house of Eliada Tnttle was struck and was slightly damaged ; nobody was; hurt, In New Britain it struck the honse of E. H. Beach, son of Judge Beach, prostrating Mrs. Beach and tearing a hole in the ground. The injury to the house was not material. The rain fell heavily for half an hour. In Morris a horse was struck and killed be longing to Orange Wedge, worth $200. In Northfield the barn of Selectman Fred erick S. .Porter was struck and burned to the ground ; everything was lost, including a val uable horse, carriages, wagons, sleighs, etc,, and about four tons of hay. Loss about $800 ; insured for $200 or $300. The house of peacon Catlin was also struck, tearing off plastering, but doing no serious damage. Mrs. Catlin was lying on the bed, her head near, the bed -post, but she did nob feel the effects of the lightning. Mr. John Catlin was at the back door, only a few feet from the house. One of the flying splinters hit him on the head, but without injuring him materially. Mr. James Catlin,' son of Mr. John Catlin, was also in the house. ' The in mates did not know for some minutes that the house had been struck. Five head of cattle on the farm of Mr Dexter Si Morse, about three-fourths of a mile north of Northfield Center, were struck by;lightning and killed. Two belonged to Mr. Dexter E. Morse, one to Mr. John S. Morse. The cattle were under a tree at the time they were killed. In"Wolcott the Congregational church was struck, but the damage was slight, consider ing the magnitude and freaks of the bolt, which seemingly struck the chimney at the north end. A part of it ran down the rafter to the east, loosening the boards and shingles, thence south under the plastering to the win dow, tearing off the casing and then disap pearing. The other part went down the north gable end in the rear of the desk, where the clapboards were splintered and the plas tering was torn off and scattered. Then it seemed to jump, without leaving any mark to the southwest window, where it tore oS the casing and clapboards under the window. It was not known that the church had been struck until the sexton opened it on Sunday morning. In Glastonbury Mr. Dudley Lee's house was struck at the southwest corner. The bolt entered under the eaves, shattering the post and scattering the clapboards and sheath ing all over the front yard. Mr. Lee was partially paralyzed by the shock, but has nearly recovered, except from a slight deaf ness. It was regarded a wonder that a large button-baD tree, which nearly overhangs the house, did not draw the lightning to itself and protect the house. Waterbury effects were as follows : The works of the Citizens' Gas Company were struck three times, and three of the la borers were slightly stunned. One of the out-houses of theHolmes.Booth A Hayden Company was torn to pieces, and a goat over in Brooklyn was killed. A bolt entered the factory of the American Flask and Cap Company and disappeared in the dip hole, badly frightening the girls who did not go home to dinner on account of the rain. , Flash after flash followed the telephone wires into the office of Plume & Atwood, and theie was a loud report which rendered W. S. Atwood feaf in one ear for more than an hour. A bolt descended into the yard of T. S. Elton, and a domestio in a house across the street was so affected by the shock that she diA5 not recover her equanimity for several hours. Lightning struck near the residence of El mer Pierpont, on the Watertown road, and Mrs. Pierpont, who was taking clothes from a line, was rendered unconscious for several moments. At Newtown Oliver Wolcott's barn was struck ard burned with its contents, consist ing of hay arid grain. Four horses were also burned in the building. The loss is esti mated at about $1,000. A horse belonging to "William Hoy was also killed by lightning, and still another horse shared the same fate. Bereavement. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Tracy B. Warren, formerly of this city, will sympa thize with them in the loss of their little boy, who died on Sunday. The Bridgeport Standard says : "They were out driving with him in the morning, but later be was at tacked with convulsions and death speedily followed. The child was nearly two years old and was born on the steamer while Mr. and Mrs. Warren were returning from Europe summer before last. They have the sympa thy of their numerous friends in their deep and sudden bereavement." A Pleasure Trip. ' Yesterday a very pleasant reunion of friends was held at Pot Island, the company taking the steamer Ivernia on her first trip and remaining during the day. The party was composed of young people from this city, Westfield, Mass., and St. John's, N. B., and were indeed a jolly and happy society. The time was passed at the island in dan cing, singing, rowing and fishing. Flying Point was visited early in the afternoon, and the party were regaled by some fine oysters on the nalr shell, wmcn seemed to be great ly appreciated by the visiting members. After a very delightful day they returned to the city, much pleased with the recreation and the charming islands. Death of a Clergyman and If ale Grad uate. Rev. John C. Bull, of Hartford, died yes terday, after an illness of a number of weeks. Mr. Bun was the son of a physician at Water- ford, Conn., a man of reputation in his pro fession, but who died while this son was only a few years old, leaving him to the care of relatives. He was sent to Yale, where he graduated in 1849. In the same class were Hon. Augustus uranaegee or jNew London, Timothy Dwight, now professor of sacred literature at Yale, and William D.

More Bodies on -the Narragansett The Of ficial Investigation. Two bodies have been found in the after cabin of the wreck of the Narragansett now at Cold Spring, L. I., those of men between twenty-five tod fifty years of age. One is five feet eight inches tan, the other six feet ; the latter had his hair cut short and was clean shaved ; the former had black hair and was slightly bald. In the pocket of one was a silver watch, patent lever, made by Mr. F. Tobias of Liverpool, No. 11,970. A coroner's jury viewed the bodies, which were taken to Oyster Bay, where an inquest was held last evening. - The headless body which came ashore at Great Neok, Waterford, June 22, and, after an inquest which failed to identify it, was buried there, has been identified as that of Dr. O. K. Sammis, of Deer Park, Suf folk county, L. L . Inspectors Hovey and Beckwith will begin an official investigation into the cause of the disaster to the steamer Narragansett next Thursday morning in the Superior Court room in New London. The manner of con ducting the investigation has not yet been outlined, and the inspectors are not prepared to say what witnesses will be summoned. It is probable that several days will be .con sumed in taking testimony. - The master of the smack Martha, of Noank, found floating in the Race a few days ago a vest, in the pocket of which was a very fine gold watch. Death of General Samuel Ross; . - ""-: j ' Another Veteran of the L.ate War Cone. The sudden death of General Samuel Ross, which occurred at PeekskiH, N. Y on Sun day, whfl bathing Jn Lake Osceola, wiU be read with regret by a large number of Con necticut people. At thebreaking out of the war General Boss was serving as Captain of the Fourteenth United State Infantry, and was appointed ' by - Governor Buckingham chief mustering officer of the State. - Later, when the Twentieth regiment was raised, Governor Buckingham commissioned him as Colonel, his commission bearing date August 19, 1862. He served throughout the war, and at its close was acting Brigadier General in the Second brigade, Third division, Twen tieth Army corps. At ChanceUorsvUle, May 3, 1863, he was wounded in the leg by a fragment of a shell. He was afterward sent home on recruiting service and was stationed in Hartford, where he is well remembered. After his return to the army in 1864 he, with his regiment, was or dered to join General Sherman in the West, and was with the army in the"march to the sea," being most of the time in command of a brigade. He commanded the post of Mari etta, Georgia, for a while during the Sher man campaign, and did noble work in that great campaign and series of engagements. At Cassville, Georgia, he distinguished him self by repelling an attack of tte confederates, he having but the Twentieth regiment and the Nineteenth Michigan at his aommahd. After the war he was placed on the retired list with the rank of colonel. He was pres ent at the reunion of his regimental the Cove Honse on East Haven shore last August, and also joined in the battle flag parade at Hart ford in September last. The deceased will be buried at Uarmel, -utnam county, jsew York. . : ' '"" Plenty of Peaches.' A Crop of 4,000,000 Baskets Expected to , he Raised In Delaware. Middletown will this year resume her old place as the peach emporium of Delaware, says the Wilmington Every Evening. Al though the estimate for the country about is 5,000,000 baskets less than was actually shipped in the great year of 1875, when 7, 000,000 baskets found their way from the station to the great markets of the country, the 375,000 or 400,000 baskets which are ex pected to be taken one way or another from the orchards to market this summer repre sents the highest number anticipated to be shipped from any one point, Smyrna coming next with- 220,000 baskets. The great bulk of the crop last year was in the lower peach section ; this year it is confined to the belt of territory between the the bays and bounded on the south by North Murkill hun dred in Delaware and the northern part of Queen Anne's-county and Cecil county, Md. , and Pencador and Red Lion hundreds in Del aware on the north. This is the great peach country, and, if there ever should be matured a full crop, would be capable of producing at least 5,000,000 baskets. A careful survey of the peach-growing sections, and information obtained from various sources, have resulted in a calculation that about 4,000,000 baskets of peaches will be shipped from the various points of shipment on the peninsula.- There wiU be at least 30 per cent, more fruit con sumed at home by the drying establishments and canning factories than last year, and it is safe to estimate the home consumption at 550,000 baskets. If the' fruit will be as re munerative as it was last year, the peninsula wiU be over $1,500,000 richer by the crop. Exchange, Sharks Thrashing1 About. An Excursion Party's Relishing View of a School of Captured Sharks in a Captured School of Whitefish. . The present season is becoming notorious as a good season for sharks. The voracious inhabitants of the .briny evince a decided preference for the waters where the whitefish flock into the mouth of New Haven harbor, and along the coast on either side of the en trance to the harbor. The sharks find this out and soon appear in schools, with their ravenous jaws ready for a meal of whitefish bones and all. The presence of the shark in schools and of the whitefish in schools can give no encouragement to the census officers or to the friends of education. The census men, if they take whitefish into account, are obliged to depend entirely on . the numbers captured and guess at the rest, while as to the number of sharks, we believe it is certain no provision has been made. However, the sharks are so frequently caught this season in the deep waters off the shore in the vicinity of the harbor that excursion parties are now daily organized for the purpose of .witnessing the capture of such of the monsters as hap pen to get into the whitefish seines, and of late, every time the seine off the Orange shore has been drawn, several sharks have been taken. Saturday such was the case. There was one sharpie load of twenty persons of the masculine gender on the ground, beside other boat loads, in waiting for the fun. The seine is drawn at 9 a. m. At that hour yes terday the drawing' of the seine was in full operation. AU eyes were watching for signs, sharks with closest attention, and the ladies of the party were prepared to utter alarming and piercing cries. Suddenly a shout arose simultaneously from three or four on the boat. A fin had been seen, and soon not one fin but the fins of half a dozen were visible, while as many tails were lashing the water into foam in the midst of a myriad of crazy, struggling whitefish, who behaved as if a presidential election had taken place and the votes were being counted. The ex perienced captain of the boat, a Fair Haven man, got his craft near enough to one of the sharks to play with him. As the shark came in close proximity he tendered to the open jaws of his sharkship the end of a long, stout stick. The shark's jaws closed on it and held it as if in a vise, and retained hold of it with such unyielding tenacity that the captain, giving his heft to the work, raised the shark nearly his whole length about five feet out of water. The shark then, not relishing the prowess of its human foe, and being ap parently unwilling to relinquish its native ele ment, let go, and with a great splash disap peared and was soon thrashing the water into foam with its tail . again among the fast ac cumulating whitefish. The party saw five sharks and had a close enough view of all, and returned to Howes pavilion, where they started from, in high glee over their novel excursion. Masonic Benefits. The board of directors of the Masonic Mu tual Benefit Association had their regular monthly meeting last evening at the Temple. Two thousand dollars was voted to the widow of Eugene Soule Beechex (previously 1 sessed), and $2,000 to the widow of George K. Hyde, of West Haven, who was burud last Wednesday, which is quick payment. This association has never waited the thirtv days allowed by its by-laws for the payment of claims, but pay as - soon as proofs of deaths are furnished. Ten new members were accepted, making, the present member ship 2,405. Canned Corned Beef A Family Poisoned AU Recovering. Mr. Otis Cook, his wife and a little daugh ter were poisoned Sunday morning at their home on Benton street by eating canned corned beef." -They partook of the meat for their breakfast, and about one hour later were taken violently fll and Dr. Hastings was sent for. He almost immediately decided that they were poisoned by eating the can ned meat. He promptly treated them for poison and they began to get better. ' Mon day morning the mother and . little- girl were np and about, bat Mr. Cook, who ate more heartily of the meat; was unable to get to his work, though much better than he was Sunday. There are large quantities of canned meat sold, and this is the first instance in this vicinity that has come, to our knowledge, whereby the consumers have suffered SI ef fects from its nee. Of conase, as. this is an exceptional case, people should snot be too hasty in condeming canned meats.
