The Angel of death visited the home of Mr. Wilson Sammons, near Poplar Ride, on the 11th inst and bore away his beloved wife, Mrs. Celia Sammons. Mrs Sammons was born Dec. 3rd 1843 and was therefore 43 years, 1 month and 8 days old. She had Jbeen a devout member of tho Primitive Baptist Church for the last twelve years. She was the daughter of Caleb White and Frankie Pope and was married Aug, 7th, 1851. Mrs. Sammons was the moth er of 15 children, 14 of whom service her. The youngest being only 3 months old. She lived and died an humble and faithful servant of the blessed Redeem er and her last injunction to her weep ing children was. “Weep not for me for all is well." To the f jnd husband, dear children and friends 1 can oiler no consolation but such as the master alone can give. It was my good fortune to be intimate ly associated with Mrs. Sammons for years and I know that her Christian light was imvr hid. A Fkiknd SlHi-kiHK I p No wedding licenses were issued yes terday. The keeper of records is some what surprised in consequence. 91 VKlt'iPAL MATTERS The Honorable Board of Mayor ami City Council iMet in regular session on Tuesday night, Jan. 18th, 1887. Present.

Huntsville, Ala., Jau, 8, ’87. 'to the Editor of Th* IlunUrifle Gazette: Is it not a noticeable aud disjred* itable fact that we neglect to much the graves of our dead ? Iq what condition a^e our cem- j eteries ? Our beloved ones who in life were our comfort and cousolatiou as ompanious aud friends, how how soon after death are tbt-y for** gotten aud their graves left forsaken aud over grown with weeds aud briers ? It sh old u«*t ba so. Ler as cher ish the memory *>f onr beloved ones who have crossed over Jordau, aud show that they occupy a tender spot in our hearts by giving some atten- j tion to their graves. Let n» plant flowers upon them, clean away the weeds and keep them green with pretty si d ling. 'Hie costly tomb | stone may be beyond our reach, but those little attentions, at little or no expense,are better thau monuments to preserve the memory of the departed fresh and green. The necessity of their constautrepetitiou keeps always fresh iu the memory t he object of the tender duties. At the beginning of this New ^ear the citizens shoulJ mature a plan for properly fixing up and later is the season decorating the graves in the cemetry. Say th it, cue day be set apart ei<rly in the spring for this purpes*,* when all the schools and all the community assemble at the Cemetery aud set out, trees, flowers, plants etc., sod the graves and strew them with flowers. Let every one contribute a small amount to help hire two or thiee men to go to the cemetry and put j all the graves in order, before this i proposed Decoration day. I think l he 18th of June wonid he a suitable day for Decoration However, anv day in th • proper season, would do. I merily suggest the 18th of Jun i as a very couveni ent tune aud a time when plenty of flowers and pleasant weather abounds. I do hope the p op!e will agree with me on threw sacred duties we owe the dead, and come together aud act. S. J. PENTECOST. ---«-• SCOTTSBORO. Jail Broken Open and Seven Prisoner* Kites pe. A gentleman from Scottsboro was in : the city yesterday who stated, that seven prisoneis made their escape Thursday night from the jail, leaving but one, Arthur Hawk. The es eape was effected by prizing open a door. These are all the facts we could gather. _ Fashion "may change in some things but an o’d well tried remedy is grappled with hooks of steel. Such is White’s Cream Vermifuge, which has a larger sale than any so-called remedy, because it never fails to expel worms from a child who'is.their victim.Therefore do not defer , its use’, but relieve your child speedily j by a dose of, White’s Cream Vermifuge. Carry thva News to the Dry Rot Brigade It is j*idwinter, but we hear of more contemplated improvements in the city, than at sjiv time since we came here. Messrs. Harris Timberlake & Co., also ! Mr. S. S. .Darwin, are on the eve of erecting some handsome store structures with imposing, substantial fronts on Commercial Row. Messrs. C. H. & W. L. Halsey, will also proceed immediately to make ex tensive alterations in the old Fennell property, adjoining the elegant residence i of O. M. Hundley, Esq., on Jefferson j Street. | The Street ^Railway will, in a day or two be under full headway so far as the construction is concerned. The rails are here, and Messrs Mayhew Sc Meyers are busy getting out the wooden sleepers. The Old Huntsville Hotel, will soon undergo a course of renovation and enl argement, which, when completed, will render it one of the most commodieus and finest Hotels in the Country. Mr. J. K. Stegall, will ereet a third story to his present Hotel huiling shortly, the increasing trade of his now popular house requiring it. Mr. Stegall is fully abreast with the times, os the subject of improvement. We hear of any number of private res> idences to lie built shortly, and taking everything into consideration, we feel safe in predicting for Huntsville a bright and glorious future. _ KEAI.

SENATORIAL WREATHS. — FRANK HISCOCK SELECTED TO REP RESENT NEW YORK. Morton'* Following Go Orer to Him in a Body — Sen »d or Unite* Ke-Fleet ed in Massachusetts—Senator* Fleeted in Ten neasee, California and Michigan. Albany, N. Y., Jan. 20.— At 8 o’clock ! Senator Put. called the Republican sena torial caucus to order. The assembly cham ber was well filled with spectators. The roll call showed Assemblymen Bates aud El dridge absent. A nominating ballot was im- : mediately ordered and resulted: Miller, 46; Morton, 36; Hiscock 11. Assemblyman Rea, . who had formerly been absent, was present I and voted for Miller amid applause. : Without any intervening eleven more ballots were taken without changing the figures. Before taking the thirteenth ballot Mr. Er- I win arose and read a letter reflecting the sen- j timent of Mr. Morton, thanking those who had stood by him; reviewing the contest in kindly terms, stating that in the earnest de- , sire of party union he was willing to with- j draw, and suggesting to his followers that they support Hon. Frank Hiscock. Mr. Husted commended th9 course of Mr ' Morton and urged that the Republican party ; stand by Mr. Miller. Senator Sloan urg'X) the party to stand by Miller. No Morton or Hiscock men spoke, and Senator Raines ‘ called for a ballot. This resulted: Hiscock, ♦7; Miller, 46, the Morton men all going to Hiscock. No Miller men seceded. The ex citement on the announcement of the vote was intense. The final ballot, eighteenth of the contest was taken and resulted: His- 1 cock, 50; Miller, 43. Frost (Miller) cast the ; winning vote for Hiscock amid tremendous i applause. Mr. Husted then moved that the nomination of Hiscock be made unanimous. ! Mr. Sloan seconded the motion, which was carried with a vim. Chairman Pitts an- j nounced Hiscock the nominee, while hats and handkerchiefs were waved widely aud cheers ascended. Thus ended the struggle, honorable to all, warding off the dangers to the Republican party, which lurked in any protracted fight for the Senatorial toga. Dawes Elected in Massachusetts. Boston, Jan. 2".—On the final vote for senator in joint convention the Dawes vote of 76 remained intact. Longs vote feil from 56 to 53, and Robinson's went up from 46 to 53. It has been generally understood that the Democrats would stick to Colling for a few ballots, but the feeling that Dawes was mre of re-election was very strong. Many Republicans who had voted for Long and Robinson were anxious to get over to Dawes and secure his re-election before the Demo crats had a chance to accomplish that effect, aud claim the credit of it, and the Demo crats were equally anxious to elect Dawes before the Republicans had a chance to do it There was a grand rush to see who could go over first. The Democrats proved the spryest, and Senator Alger started the ball. Before the changes were completed nineteen Democrats, seventeen Robinson Republicans and nine Long Republicans had transferred their votes to Dawes, and eighteen Long Republicans, with three Democrats, had gone over to Robinson. The vote as finally announced was as fol lows: Dawes, 102 Republicans and 79 Demo crats; total, 181. Robinson, 54 Republicans and 3 Democrats; total, 57. Long, 26 Re publicans: Collins, 11 Democrats: John E. Russell, 1 Democrat. Dawes bad 22 major ity of the total Republican vote, and 55 ma jority of the total Democratic vote. The Vote in Nebraska.
