Mr. James McGraw, a successful merchan
and highly-respected citizen of Harper'
. Ferry, died suddenly Monday morning 8
| 6:45 o’clock. A dispatch to the Baltimor
| Sun says : “The deceased was a native c
, Limerick, Ireland. He came to Harper1
Ferry and settled in 1854, and by strict at
tention to business and upright dealing
with his patrons amassed considerable prop
■ erty. .Mr. McGraw was well acqninted am
had considerable business transactions witl
! John Brown just prior to the Brown raid
I Brown left his horse with him at the tiun
of his capture to settle some indebtednea.
| He leaves one son, James C. McGraw, am
) two daughters, Misses Maggie and Katie.’
j We must say to the credit of Mr. McGras
1 that ha didn’t know John Brown except a:
{ John Smith—for under the assumed naan
Brown was an almost daily visitor to Har
| per’s Ferry and known as such to the edi
[ tor of this paper. The funeral will taki
place at 9 o’clock Thursday morning—th<
services in St. Peter’s Catholic Church.
Last Monday morning Thomas Garrisot
was in Longerbeam’s liquor saloon in tbit
place, when the proprietor stepped out foi
a few moments. A couple of shot bags fa!
of mouev—$160 in all—lay upon a shel
| behind tto !>ar, and the sight of it proved
.. ua.piauon that the unfortunate young
man could not resist. He put the monej
in his pockets and slipped out the back way.
| Mr. Longerbeam soon returued and missed
the money. He started after Garrison,
whom he soou overtook, and recovered it
all. Longerbeam theu got out a warrant
for Garrison’s arrest. Recorder Cbapline
gave Garrison a preliminary bearing. He
made no defense, and in default of bail was
committed to jail at Charles Town to await
the action of the grand juty. He claims
that be was under the influence of liquor
when he committed the act.—Shep. Regtiler.
Mr. John W. Ware and wife on Thursday
last celebrated their golden wedding. Few
persons are permitted the pleasure of enter
taining friends under such circumstances.
We are informed that this was an occasion
of real enjoyment to frieuds and neighbors,
and especially so to the venerable couple
who have faithfully kept the vows made a
half century ago. The fiftieth anniversary
was celebrated by a dinner that was fit for
the gods. Among the guests, and we can
only mention a few, were Rev. John Fores
ter and wife, Col. John J. Grantham aud
wife, James A. Shirley and wife, John G.
Shirley and wife, Joseph H. Easterday and
wife, Miss Lizzie Ware. The presents were
numerous aud appropriate, and the day was
auspiciou* beyond expression in words.
Mr. Wm. Kahn aud wife will take pos
session of their handsome new house on
Main street, between Mildred and East
streets, to-day. It is a commodious dwell
ing— s^Ven or eight rooms, elegantly finish
ed and furnished. It is replete with mod
ern conveniences and appointments—gas,
hot and cold water, closets, fire-places,
porches, etc. The front is of pressed brick.
The roof is of slate. There is hardly au
omission of anything needful to comfort or
even luxury. Mr. E. E. Beachlev, the con
tractor, is entitled to credit for the excellen
cy of the work upon this building and Mr.
Kahn aud his young wife are to be congrat
ulated. _
Inadvertently we omitted to mention the
gift of a hundred dollars, in September, of
Mr. Charles B Rouss, of New York, to the
Independent Fire Company of this town.—
It is not the first generous donation of Mr.
Rouss to this company. We can assure him
that he has thus aided a most efficient or
gamzaiiOD. .ur. ivouss s mieramv iu me
tire laddies ought to commend him to the
very high consideration of the insurance
companies. There is hardly an organiza
tion in the great Valley of Virginia that has
not been a beneficiary of tbe generosity of
Mr. Rous*. In his youuger days he must
have gone out with tbe boys at the first cry
of fire.
The formal opening of the new bridge
across tbe Potomac at Brunswick (formerly
Berlin1, Maryland, took place on Saturday
and was witnessed by five or six thousand
people. Berkeley and Jefferson counties
were largely represented. The Martinsburg
City Band, twenty-five performers, was pres
ent. The town was gay with bunting and
flags—private residences and places of bus
iness profusely decorated. The ceremonies
began by a parade at two p. m. There was
much speaking. At night the bridge was
illuminated and fireworks from tbe centre
of the structure. The bridge is 1,710 feet
long, 16 feet wide. Cost $62,000.
Mr. John H. Hill, principal of the color
ed public school in Shepberdstown, has been
appointed assistant principal of the West
Virginia State Colored School located near
Charleston. The appointment is an excel
lent one, a» Mr. Hill is highly qualified in
every respect to fill the position, it may
also be added that the Democratic party
gives the colored mau something more than
promises. Our representative in the legis
lature, Hon. A. 5v Daudridge, worked hard
to secure the appointment tor Mr. Hill. He
will probably enter upon his duties within
a month—Shepherdstoin* Register.
The Har|>er’s Ferry Sentinel thinks that
whilst we indulged in seutiment iu referring
to this paper as the “Dear Old Free Press”
that Mine of the patrons thereof might
think we were discounting it, somewhat. It
might have been sentiment—but it wasn’t
cent I meant There are, in a dollars and
cents view, dear and cheap newspapers. In
oue sense The Free Press is not to be re
tarded as cheap—there’s nothing shoddy
•bout it.
We warn our esteemed friend, the editor
of the Charles Town Free PRESS, against
too much alliteration with initial letters.—
He has got so uiauy of ’em iu his uame he’d
be kept very busy protecting them. Besides,
We don’t Waut to get into any discussion
with him until We have finished our Work
on that other W.—Shepherdstuun Register.
Our friend of the Register is rather opposed
to taking his own physic.
