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. - '-

' 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. Bishop, ex-
president of the New York, New Haven , and
Hartford railroad.
Subsequent to his graduation Mr. Bun
taught school atMeriden and Tarrytown. He
also studied theology and was ordained to the
ministry. For twenty-five years past he had
been connected with the American Asylum at
Hartford; Several years after his settlement
in Hartford he married Miss Julia Sargent,
daughter of William M. Sargent, who is now
resident in East Hartford. His wife and
three children survive, and the eldest daugh
ter was a member of the last graduating class
at tne female seminary.
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. Hartford
