A Select Picnic. —About forty couples of our young ladies and gen tie men embarked on a special train to picnic in a grove near Barrellville, last Saturday morning.

Benjamin F. Stewart and Henry Howies, both col ored, the participants in a debate at Paul’s Opera House Tuesday evening. The subject under discussion was " The exodus of the South —whether the colored people of the South were justified by it or not ?" The follow ing gentlemen acted as judges: Messrs. Dr. Ravensoraft, Walter Ed wards, J. P. Smith, D. B. Taylor, S, H. F. Bell, who, after hearing both sides discussed fully decided in the negative —the side Mr. Stewart took. The debate was an able one, and both gentlemen handled the subj eot with ability and showed conclusively that they were capable of discussing matters of great importance. The proceeds went towards the fund of (he Brownsville M. E. Church, Memorial Day in Frostburg.— Last Monday the entire population turned out to do honor to the memory of the dead President. Every busi ness houso was closed and the streets at early morn wore ns still as death. About 10 o’clock a. m. the different secret societies and Sunday Schools assembled at their respective places of meeting preparatory to forming for the parade to the grove.

Wil liam Brace. Every organization carried a hand some United Stales flag appropriately draped in mourning. The Welsh Congregational Sunday School carried in addition to a flag a handsome por trait of Garfield. Upon arriving at the grove the speakers’ stand, which was shroud ed in drapery, was immediately sur rounded and the exercises commenced by the choir, under the leadership of Prof. Samuel P. Thomas, singing "America," followed with prayer by Rev. Dr. Ruhl. The choir then sang "Mourn, Mourn, Praise, Praise.” The chairman then introduced Mr. Hoffman, who said : "Never in the course of public life, stretching back a quarter century, have I ever been culled upon to address an audience upon such au melancholy occasion. The bells with their clanging notes are but the funeral knells played up on the oars of a sorrowing people. Our own hearts like muffled drums are playing funeral marches to the grave. Has the sun of our republic been darkened by a clouded sky of death ? We are called upon to mourn, and not since Egypt lost her first born has the world mourned as we do now. Never before has the world lost a man like James A. Garfield. Let us look at Garfield as the man— he was not unlike his fellows; he was born to no heritage or luxury; be came from no one who ever wore the purple or whose ancestors were noted in this world’s history. He came from those who were toilers of the soil—from the working class. In all that went to make up true greatness he stood first and foremost. Take him in his humble home iu boyhood —at an early age he gave evidence of the man that was to be. A benefi cent education, wise statesmanship and great ability made him a true man. * * * How many knew James A. Garfield personally out of the 50,000,000 of people? Yet in every town and city in this republic they have come together on this day to express their grief. The4th of March he stood before 100,000 people and tooktho oath to support the constitution of the United States. To-day he lies in death’s cold embrace. Garfield was looked upon as more fitted to preside than any of our presidents from Washington down; he came nearer being the ideal of what a pres ident should be thau any one who has ever sat in the executive chair at the "White House. ’ The speaker in the same eloquent strain paid glowing tributes to Harrison, who died within a month after he took his seat; to Zachary Taylor and the martyred Lincoln. He referred in touching terms to Garfield's family'oalling them t • "typical American family," and said “never did a president enter the White House who carried into it a household more fitted to live there. But when everything looked eerene the assassin's ballet ploughed a path into the very heart of the nation. The presidential chair may be vacated —the assassin’s bullet may perform its work but the government still lives. The assassins, come from where they may bo they as numerous ns they may, they cannct pull down one pil lar of this great government. It is not for one man or for one set of men. We are a government that will live for all time to come." The speaker then thanked the audience for their close attention and stated that as ha had to speak in Cumberland he would have to leave. The choir then sang, "Where, oh, where is our loved one gone? Judge Douglas Percy in a short speech suggested that the young men of Allegany county start a subscrip tion list for the purpose of erecting a monument on Dan’s Rock to the memory of James A. Garfield. Singing by the choir. The secretary of the meeting, Mr. Thomas Hill, read the following reso lutions, which were adopted by a ris ing vote: Whereas, On the 2d day of July, 1831, James A. Garfield, President of the United States, was shot by a dastardly wretch which resulted in the death of our beloved President on the 10th of September, 1881, and on this day the last mournful rite of burial is administered by a sorrowing peo ple at Cleveland, Ohio; therefore bo it— Resolved, That wo, the people of Frost burg and surrounding country in Allcgauy county, Maryland, in mass-meeting assem bled, as a token of respect for our late President do mournfully express our sor row in common with the people of these United Slates for the loss of one who had won, bv integrity and ability, the first placu m the hearts as well as in the gift of hiscountrymen. Resolved, That while we mourn the Na tion’s loss bis calm and tranquil submis sion to the will of Divine Providence is au example worthy of our imitation, and knowing that ail his trusts were adminis tered with the strictest deference to the law; to follow the example of one so great and noble will be a guarantee of the prosperity of our Republic. Resolved, That to Chester A. Arthur, his successor, is due the confidence and fa vor of all loyal citizens, and we hereby, as lovers of law and order, pledge him our hearty support. Resolved, That to the true and devoted wife, the venerable mother and the orphan cliildieu we tender our heartfelt sympathy. The meeting was then adjourned with benediction by Rev. Dr. Ruhl. Thus ended oneof the largest gath erings of citizens ever held here, the crowd being estimated at about 5,000 on the ground, who paid their last tribute to the dead chieftain in a fit ting manner. The day was observed throughout the entire region and in Louaconing, Barton, Westernport and Cumberland eulogies were delivered by prominent speakers. City Council Proceedings —At a special meeting of the Mayor and City Council held in the Council Chamber last Friday evening, Clerk F. Bepler made (he following remarks and of fered the subjoined resolutions which were unanimously adopted: “On Monday night last the sad intelligence flashed over the wires that all that was left of our beloved President was his body cold in death, his spirit hav ing flown to that land where death his dark banner no more triumphant ly shall wave. Gentlemen, I submit the following: Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in Ilia infinite wisdom, to remove James A. Garfield from bis earthly abode to come up higher, after eleven weeks of intense suffering, therefore be it— Resolved, That wo, the Mayor and Coun cil, have met to express our sorrow in tbo death of our great leader, James A. Gar field, after having come up from an bum ble and pious borne through hardships and trials, and having been favored with honors upon honors until at last he was crowned with the highest honor in the gift of the American people, having climbed to the topmost round in the lad der of fame and reached the summit of his ambition with a bright and prosperous future before him; ids able administration scarcely begun when suddenly there was a flash, a report, and James A. Garfield, President of these United Stales, was shot down hv an assassin’s bullet; it fell upon tbo country like a thunderbolt from a cloudless sky; while nur republic is plunged in grief and mourning we feel confident tha. if Chester A. Arthur con tinues to carry out the administration laid down by James A. Garfield, which wo sincerely hope and pray he will, that then we can look up through all this gloom and say in the language of Garfield himself, upon the assassination of the immortal Abraham Lincoln, “God reigns and the Government at Washington still lives.” And be it further— Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of this meeting and a copy of it bo published in the Frostburg Mining Journal and in the Cumberland dally papers. No other business of importance was transacted. Tho Council Chamber was ordered to be draped in mourning for thirty days. Our citizens should be careful not to receive coin mutilated iu any man ner for the United States government 1 has fixed the following value on silver coins with holes in them : Dollars, 65 cents; half dollars, 35 cents; quarters, 15 cents; dimes, 5 cents. The Crystal Cornet Band’s fair was attended last Saturday evening by St. Peter's Band, of Westernport, The visiting musicians discoursed some sweet music while in town. The lair was a financial success. Several refreshing showers this week. The Sick. —John Barrett, Esq., is convalescent. Mr. A. E. Frey and daughter, Mis, Ina, are lying very ill at their resi dence with typho-malarial fever. Mr. William Hart is confined to his bed with a severe spell of sickness. Mr. Harry Bepler is recovering from his recent indisposition. The hop of the Crystal Cornet Band at Odd Fellows Opera House last Tuesday was a very fine affair. Visitors were present from Mt. Sav age, Cumberland, Eokhart, Pompey Smash and Borden Shaft. At "the dawn’s early light” the company dis persed to their homes delighted with their evening’s enjoyment. Last Saturday Evening’s Blaze in Mt. Savage. Shortly after 8 o'clock last Saturday evening the Union Mining company’s fire brick works at Mt. Savage took fire and burned to the ground. The brilliant illumination it produced led many of our citizens to believe that the entire town of Mt. Savage was ablaze and some one rang an alarm on the Cath olic Church bells which called out the fire department who are always ready to respond at the shortest no tice. The fire being confined solely to the works, however, and other portions of the town not being con sidered in danger, onr firemen were not called upon. The loss is estimat ed to be about $22,000 with an insur ance of $5,000. This works employ ed a large force of men who will con sequently ha idle until the company rebuilds which they have decided to do. The buildings were principally made of corrugated iron and brick and were purchased by the company at the Centennial, they being part of the carriage annex at that exhibition. School Notes. —Miss Jessie White hoe been appointed assistant at Mid land Mines school. The Cumberland News says "Mr. Thomas Hill, it is understood, will be made principal of the Eckhart school.” All the schools in the county were closed last Monday, Mr. Dennis Boyle, of Lonaooning, has been appointed first assistant at Barton school, A new school has been started on the Jackson side of Lonaconing. The Cumberland Times learns "that Judge John Douglas, of the board of school commissioners, proposes offer ing prizes for the best essay upon the education of children, the sums offer ed being taken from his salary as a member of the school board, and that only teachers of this county will be allowed to compete for the prizes. The idea is a good one and will be quite an incentive for giving proper care and attention to the training of pupils, as the prize essay could be built only upon one's practical knowl edge of the subject. The great prize essay will be for the sum of fifty dol lars.” The Greenback-Labor Conven tion — Nomination of a Full Ticket, —The, National Greenback Labor party of this county held their con vention in Cumberland Thursday.

The Memorial Services at the Churches.—Last Sunday all the dif ent places of worship in this town were largely attended at both the morning and evening services. The sermons were on the death of the President and were eulogistic in char ac'er. The drapings were in keeping with the occasion and called forth ex pressions of praise in every instance. At the M. E, Church the interior of the Sunday School room was hand somely draped. Around the reading desks and pulpit hung heavy folds of black, while the large fountain was completely enwrapped with the same, Immediately back of the pulpit was a large picture of Garfield with a heavy border of black. In the main room, up-stairs, the draping was even .more elaborate. Rev. J. P. Wilson deliv ered an oration on the virtues of the deceased in lieu of a sermon. The German Reformed Church was elegantly trimmed on the interior. The reading desk, baptismal font, altar and pulpit were covered entire ly with the emblems of mourning while back of the pulpit hung a large silk flag with black border. The choir gallery was also draped as was the silk banner hanging overhead. Rev. Dr. Ruhl discoursed in the morn ing from the text from 2d Samuel 3d chapter: And the king said unto his servants "Know ye not there is a pnnee and a great man fallen this day in Israel ?

Death of a Prominent Citizen of Grantsvillk. —Charles Loowan stein, Esq., died at his residence in Grantsville, Garrett county, Md., Monday night last, aged 48 years and 9 months, of typhoid-pneumonia. He had been ill two weeks, but being a man of strong physique the issue was a painful surprise to all who knew him. He was well and favorably known in Frostburg; was a member of Heine Lodge, No, 127, I. 0. 0. F., and only five weeks ago entered Frost burg Lodge, No. 590, Knights of Hon or. For his family the latter was a fortunate step, as by it they will re ceive two thousand dollars within ninety days. His wife and seven children survive him, the latter mostly grown, among them A. Loewenstein, Esq., merchant tailor, of this place. A large number of Odd Fellows and Knights of Honor of the lodges named attended the funeral Thursday at Grantsville. The long line of car riages on the National Road reminded old dwellers somewhat of ancient stage days, while the bright regalia and glittering badge delighted eyes unused to the pomp and circumstance of fraternal tribute to the dead. The burial services were conducted first by Rev. J. P. Wilson, chaplain, in accord ance with the K, of H. ritual; next by Rev. Dr. J. Ruhl with the I. 0. 0. F. ritual. At the German Lutheran Church Rev. Mr. Young, pastor, held appropriate funeral services, Mr. L. having been a member. The deceased was a good citizen and highly esteem ed for many solid virtues. His loss will be keenly felt in Grantsville, par ticularly by the family to whom he gkve a husband's and father’s devotion A Garfield Monument on Dan’s Rock — A Patriotic Movement. —The proposition to build a monument to the memory of President Garfield on Dan's Rock meets with general favor. As a movement designed to be wholly non-partisan it possesses a number of inducements for popular support. Besides the erection of an enduring testimonial to the President's ability and heroism, it will furnish an artis tic and patriotic feature of attraction to an already far-famed but neglected resort. Some such adornment is im peratively needed at the Rook—some thing to invite ornamentation of sur roundings and embellishment of grounds. The surface at the western base is admirably adapted to the pur poses indicated ; though rugged it is level for a sufficient area to make it a spacious, smooth and handsome park. However, the way to begin is to begin / If there is a solid wish in spiring the people to bury the bitter ness of sectional differences and party rancor, we have been assured that this day provides the time and this proposal the opportunity for a com mon, generous and patriotic manifes tation of that desire. And now, while the memory of tho President’s uncomplaining sufferings is frosh in mind and heart, let those who have taken the movement in hand spare no time in carrying it to a successful issue. Lot those, also, who are ap proached make some investment in the patriotic enterprise. By all means, aid the movement to the ex tent of your ability ; help the initial stop toward knocking off tho rough edges of one of the proudest outlooks in Nature’s domain. This first step accomplished, all the others will fol low in natural order, until the Great Rock becomes a point of artistic to pographic celebrity. As an earnest of the spirit animat ing the project tho gentleman with whom it originated, Judge Douglas Percy, of this place, has thrown in it all his vim. Though advanced in years he holds with undiminished te nacity the rugged will and force for which the sons of Scotland.are every where famed. He has enlisted in this cause with unusual ardor and the public may expect it to succeed. Personal. —Mr. George Kane, of Pittsburg, is visiting his father in this place.
