A terrible accident occurred at
dar Falls on Wednesday of last week,
resulting in the death of one man and
slight injury to one or two others.
Tho frame of tho Baptist church, then
being erected, fell with a fearful crash.
Mr. Ilcnry Bogart was at work on the
cupola at the timo and fell through
the timbers to tho ground, a distance
of sixtj* or seventy feet. When pick
ed up be was senseless, his neck was
dislocated and several bones were
broken. In fifteen minutes all signs
of life ceased. Mr. Wallace, the con
tractor, was on the capola still higher
than Mr. Bogart. He kept his place
upon the falling frame and was car
ried over by it till within a few feet
of the ground when he leaped from it
and escapcd serious injury. The Ga
zette says the contractor had repeat
ed warnings, but neglected to use the
ordinary precautions which would
have prevented this terrible and fatal
accident. Quite a number of mechan
ics refused to work on the building at
all until it should be properly stayed.
Mr. Bogart himself did not consid
er it safe, and told his wife so on the
very morning of his death, and she
tried to persuade him not to go on the
frame again. At the time the frame
fell there was quite a breeze blowing,
but nothing approaching a gale.
A Corouer's inquest was held on the
remains of Mr. Bogart, and the follow
ing is a copy of the verdict of the
We, the jury, find flria verdict: That the

resulting at once were not so severe
as to lead to any interference, but had

Iloyd County Agricultural Fair.
Tho Sixth Annual Fair of the Ftoyd
County Agricultural Society was held
at Rockford on Wcduesday.and Thurs
day of last week. The weather was fa
vorable, but owing to tho busy sea
son and some unexpected obstacles
the attendance aud exhibition were
not as large as on some former occa
The display of Cattle and Horses
was good—also of Fruits and Vegeta
bles, and iu the Ladies' departments,
including Dairy, Provisions, House
hold Manufactures, Fine Arts, &c., &c.
Altogether the Fair was highly cred
itable to the County. The single dis
play of either Cattle, Fruits or Domes
tic Manufactures was sufficient to am
ply repay iu benefit to the county all
the trouble and expense iucurred, were
not a single ccnt received in premi
While it is evident that no town in
the County can make the Annual Fair
what it ought to be and could be made
with permanent Fair Grounds, it must
be admitted with shame that a large
proportion of tho people within the
county do not now manifest the inter
est upon the subject which its impor
tance detnauds.
What man or woman of any means,
paying business or public spirit can
not profitably employ one day aud
spend twenty-five cents or one dollar
for the privilege of annually meeting
those from all portions of the county,
taking them cordially by the hand—if
an honest one—aud thus witness the
substantial signs of progress, inde
pendence and comfort which a well
conducted Fair brings within our
reach I The true view for every farm
er and business man within the coun
ty is not that bo cannot afford to
pay a dollar to become a member
and attend a one or two days Fair,
but that he cannot afford to neglect to
do both, if withiu his power.
The Situation.
The war is really near ttt close.
The present front of the rebellion, me
nacing though it be, is really nothing
more than a mask, concealing the hol
lowuess and rottenness within. The
South is literally exhausted—exhaust
ed of that without whieh it is impos
sible to carry on the war -exhausted
of men. As Gen. Grant the other day
pungcutly said, the rebels have rob
bed the cradle and the grave to rein
force their armies." Out of an availa
ble fighting population of upwards of
three-quarters of a million with which
the war was inaugurated, they have
saved an effective force of one hundred
or one hundred and fifty thousand
men. The rest arc in their graves, in
the hospitals, disabled, or prisoners in
our hands. These are the forlorn hope
of the rebellion.
The rebel chiefs at Richmond arc now
sweeping all their available forces
from all quarters into the army of Lee.
All their outlying dctachmcuts, gue
rillas included, from Southwestern Vir
ginia, East Tennessee and Kentucky,
Georgia, South Carolina and North
Carolina, are moving for Richmond
aud Petersburg. Such is our informa
tion from the army of the Potomac
Lee is massing an immense body of
troops on our left—on that vital Wei
don railroad. He evidently meditates
a struggle of life or death for its pos
session—a crushing assault with an
overwhelming column, like that of
Stonewall Jackson at Gaines' Mill.
To this extremity is Lee reduced by
the tightening lines of Gen. Grant.
They must be broken or Richmond
must be abandoued for lack of sup
plies. The army of the Potomac an
ticipates an attack, aud, prepared at
all points, calmly awaits the opening
of the crowning act of the drama. Gen.
Grant is not ignorant of the enemy's
movements, necessities or designs
He is ready but he can still afford
to wait, for while he is now strength
ened in everything by every day's de
lay, Gen. Lee, from his diminishing
subsistence, is daily weakened in his
weakest point.
From the Rio Or and*.
A brilliant victory has been achiev
ed on the Rio Grande river at Browus
ville. The battle was commenced by
the Frcnch troops who sought to cap
ture Matamoras from the Mexicans un
der Cortinas. This was on the Mexi
can side of the river. The rebel troops
under Col. Ford at Brownsville, on the
Texas side of the river, undertook to
help the French, when the 91st Illinois
regiment, stationed at Brazos de San
tiago, came up and took a hand in the
fight. The result was that the French
and Confederates were both beautiful
ly whipped. Cortinas now holds Mat
amoras, and the Federals are in pos
session of Brownsville. The flight of
Ford from Brownsville was so hasty
that he left his colors flying. When
the Mexicans crossed the river they
immediately substituted tlte stars and
stripes for their own flag. Entering
Brownsville, they were not long in
tearing down the rebel rag aud hoist
ing the American ensign, where it still
floats over the court-house of that city.
For one night the Yankees and Mexi
cans lay encamped side by side, the
latter apparently as proud of the stars
and stripes as the former.
