Locklin was received with deep sorrow, not only along the line of the read, but every where where he wns known. Engines are appropriately draped in mourning, us also is the St. Albans depot, a id es pecially noticeable is the door of Mr. Loeklin's office, which is heavily drap ed in mourning. On Tuesday evening, a meeting of the employees of the Vermont Central II. It. was held at the Railroad Library Rooms to take action expressive of their sorrow for the death of Mr. Locklin. Mr. A. Tinker, of the Transportation Depart ment, was called to the chair, and Mr. E. Putnam was appointed secretary. Mr. Geo. O. Hunt, Samuel Williams, and Millon Sessions were appointed to prepare resolutions. M. O. Elliott, A. Tinker, and Milton Sessions were ap pointed a committee to make arrange ments to attend the funeral. Atter which, the meeting adjourned till last evening, when the following resolu tions were reported and adopted : By the inscrutable pro.idenceof God, we are called to mourn the death of our late friend and companion, Horace II. Locklin, late Assistant Superintendent of this road. In token of our sorrow and as a testimonial of our respect for his memory, Iicsolved, That we sadly bow in hum ble submission to the will of him who has taught us that he does not willingly " afllict ot grieve the ehildre.i of men.'' Resolved, That in the death of Mr. Locklin we have lost an invaluable and faithful officer, one who rega.dlessof self, devoted his whole time and abili ties to the service of his employers, and who, finally struck down in the per- lormunce oi ms mines, uecamea martyr to his fidelity; a loved friend and com panion, whose modest and unassuming bearing, his inflexible integrity, and genuine worth, won for him the love and respect ef all with whom he was as sociated. licsolvcd, That while in thishourof nadness and trial, wo can offer to his widow little of earthly consolation, we tender her our heartfelt sympathy, and commend her to the gracious care and protection of Him who " healcth those that are broken in heart." THE FUNERAL. Long before the hour fixed for the Amoral, 2 o'clock this afternoon, there was a general movement on tho part of our citizens towards tho residence of Mr. Locklin, on Hank street. The trains from tho south and north broughl in a largo number of railroad men who were desirous to testify, by their preseuce, their respect for the deceased. "Work was suspended in the machine shops and the St. Albans Foundry, the men in the employ of which attending tho funeral in a body. The fiag over the St. Albans depot wns .put at half-mast, nnd the stores throughout tho village were clos ed during the exercises at the house and church. At a little before 2 o'clock the em ployees in the Machine-Shops, marshal ed by Henry Sessions, proceeded up Lake Street, through Main to Bank Street to the residence of the deceased. At the appointed hour, nfler prayer nt the house, a procession was formed, the employees In the shops acting as an es cort, and proceeded to the church. The general; order of the procession was as follows: Escort the Rev. J. Isham Bll-s; the hearse, which carried a beau tiful casket containing the remains of the much lamented dead : Pall-bearers Messrs. John W Newton and J B Fletcher, of St. Albans; Geo T Bene dict and L KGrover of White River Junction ; SL Howe, of Monlpclier; E A Chittenden, of Rouse's Point. Then followed tho mother and wife of Mr Locklin, William Locklin and sister, Mr it Mrs Cooper, and Sti erintendent Merrill, and other prominent railroad officials, with their wives. On arriving at the church, it was found that its capacity was not large enough to accommodate all, and many were therefore obliged to remain outside. The services in the Church were con ducted by the rector, Mr. Bliss, in a very impressive manner. The exercises over, the procession reformed in tho same or.lor, and proceeded to the ceme tery, where nil that is mortal of Horace II. Locklin, the able Assistant-Superintendent of the Vermont Central Itail roai. and the kind hearted gentleman, was deposited in its final resting place. St. Albans Post Office. We un derstand that the Post Office question is becoming simplified. Mr. E. B. Whit ing, of the Messenger, who has been an applicant for the office, it is reported, has withdrawn, and supports Mr, McAl lister, who has obtained the signatures of about 500 of the citizens of St. Albans. The present incumbent, Judge Barber, has held the office about four years, and was re-appointed last summer. Mr. Barber has recently appointed Dr. R. R. Sherman Assistant Postmaster under him. Free Press. We arc glad to be assured that " tho Post Office question is becoming simpli fied ; " wo have all along contended that it was "fixed." We are surprised to learn that our favoiite candidate has withdrawn and that, too, without con sultation with the Transcript, which has from time to time modestly, but earnestly, suggested his pre-eminent claims and fitness for the position, while others, who were in duty br.und to stand by him, wilfully deserted him. Even after this cruel desertion we have faith to believe that he would have succeeded with the aid which the Transcript would hnve cheerfully given him. But it is now too late. Undue haste, wo fear, has destroyed the "fixedness" of the St. Albans Post Office. We, however, may well enquire, What does it all mean ? Are we to understand that pro mises made four or five years ago are not to bo fulfilled? It seems wo were misinformed the other day in our statement about the now Assistant Postmaster. Dr. R. R. Sherman, who is well and favorably known to the people of St, Albans and Franklin County, has received tho ap pointment. The Dr. is gentlemanly nnd obliging, and Judge liarborhas certain ly made a most excellent selection. c-. - -- A.
