Death of an Aged Methodist Preacher.
Rev. Jacob Yobbo died suddenly on Friday
afternoon, at the residence of his son, near
Columbus. Be had attained a good old ag.
Most of his life he has devoted to preaching
as a minister and elder of the Methodist
Episcopal Cbureh. lis was admitted on trial
October 2, 1802, when the Western Conference
was 'old at Cumberland, Tennessee. His firrt
station, 1803, was at "Barren," in the Cumber -Hud
District. Net a single associate of his,
members of that conference, perhaps, survives.
Id 1804 he was stationed at "Wilderness," in
the Bulston District. Be was admitted Into
fall Joonneotion at tbe Western Conference, at
lit. Gerlzim, Kentucky, Ootobor 2, 1804, and
was assigned to the station of Muskingum and
Kanawha, of whioh Wiiliaii Dcbie was
Presiding Elder. 1800 to Limestone or Mays
vllle, In Kentuoky District, of which Father
Bosks was then Presiding Eider. 1807 at
Nashville, in Cumberland District, of whioh
William McKehdrbi was Presiding Elder.
1806 be was himself appointed Presiding
Elder of tbe Mississippi District. 1S00 Bt
West Wheeling, Virginia, In Muskingum
District. Fifty years ago, on the 30th of this
month, the Western Conference mot in Cin
cinnati, and Jaoob Yon so was returned to
Wet Wheeling Station. We believe there
survives none of tbe preachers of that day,
exoept perhaps one, not now in the ministry.
It would be eurioas, as an Ulastrativeextmple
of the Methodist itineracy, to mite tho different
fields of labor to which this veterau preacher
has been assigned, always adhering to the
Western or Ohio Conference, except in 1811,
when be was assigned to Redstone, In the
Mouoogahela District of the Baltimore Con

Elder of Ohio District, in the same cenfernce.

Two ScRvivons. Mr. David S. Hunt, of

Louisville, Ky., which has been her homo
'ineo 1813, who was a passenger on tho
(Vermont, on her trial trip from Xew York to
Albany. The Albany Journal, in announc
ing the death of the Dean of Itippon, of Eng
land, says, that tliero now resides in Albany
the only surviving cabin passenger who
vnaAe the first trip with Robert Fulton by

mistaken, and there are at least two sur
vivors, allow us to introduce Hon. John Q.
Wilson to Mrs. Mary Van Vechton.
Good Thing for the Seventeenth Ward.
This portion of our city has long beon kept
back by tho demotion of its main avenue "to
ouCBtoot occupation by omnit uses and every
class of vehicles. We believe that a well-ordered
street railroad will lessen these obstruc
tions and increase tho value of property. It
has been fortunate for the Seventeenth Ward
that the Pendleton Railroad Company has se
cured its franohiros on terms so agreeable to
thti residents along the line and to the Cum
pany. We believe that the gonorou polley
recently pursued by the Little Miami Rail
road Company has tendod to the kind rela
tions now existing. An iron track heretofore
has been an exasperation to the people, instead
of being, as It now is, a bond of anion. Stock
has been liberally subscribed by residents of
Fulton, and the pooplo await the commence
ment of street railroad transit with much in
terest. $i0,000 mure will oomplute thoir capi
tal itook. We bops that some cars may be
constructed especially to accommodate the
baskets replenished to fulness at our markets,
which the women of Fulton bear to their homes
on their return from the eity proper.

Hamilton, our Butler County Neighbor.
Notwithstanding the improvements Hamil
ton has made, the progressive introduction of
valuablejBydraullo works, whioh give her great
rank as a manufacturing town, we can net, in
wishing her God-speed in the career of an
anticipated greatness, but remomber her as the
pioneer vilinge. It was sixty-eight years ago
thlj month that Fort Hamilton was built In
tho wilderness, as tho first link of a chain of
stockaded forts on a line West from Cincinnati
or Fort Washington. It was built by Oenoral
St. Claib, but two months previous to the
disastrous defeat of 1791. We revive an Inci
dent of traglo Interest in the early history of
Hamilton, which, although it has passed Into
history, is not current in the cvery-duy stories
of the present generation. No one now re
members, and few havo heard, of tbe sad story
of Sr.TB Bun, the only son of a widowed mother,
of New York, who, with a party of six, deserted
from 1'ort Hamilton in the full of 1792, and
reached the Ohio River, a shortdlutance below
the sito of the present city of Louisville, but
with his colleagues, Gallrhes, John IJbows,
end four others, wore returned by Oeneral
Class to tbe arbitrary and tyranaieal officer,
Major RuDutrB, then Commander of the troops.
The returned deserters were tried by a oourt
martial; the throe names above were sentenced
to be hung, two wero to run the gauntlet, la
dim style, and the remaining two for a stipu
lated period to bo Imprisoned, loaded with
henvy irons. Five hundred soldiors, it is said,
were drawn up in arms around the fatal spot,
to witness the exit of their unfortnate com
lades. The sufferers were young men of spirit
and handsome appearance, in the opening
bloom of life, with their long hair floating
over thoir shoulders. Joun Baotr.y had been
forbidden by bis paronts to wed the girl bo
loved, and be took to the eaddlo, and became a
dragoon in the wilds of tho West, but from
harsh treatment he felt constrained to dejort.
On the gallows he alluded to his cruel oppres
sor. Tho rope that was fastened about Bern
Hun's neck Blipped, aud he struggled in gteat
pain no til his ntok was broken. If the exe
cution hud been delayed a few bonrs, a re
prove from Don. Wilkinsos would have saved
these young men from their tragic feto.

Editobs Prkht Faeas: A stranger visiting
your city to attend the Mcchauical and Horti
cultural Festivals is surprised ft tbo total
want of consideration by its municipal au
thorities iu providing some permanent and
central location for thoir regular exhibitions.
LiUo o'ir btato rairs, tuoy have become per

politan city of tho West it would hardly be
respectable for a third-rato country town.
In v nlking through your city my attention
is always attracted by the vacant space on
Filth, near Main. What a nuisance it is, aud
how sensibly must tho value of property be
affected by its accumulated dirt and filth.
Why can not some sensible man in your

for tho erection of a light, well-arranged

ob.jw of the latter, which wn could admire
without being forced into tho nutters of
Broadway and walnut, men tee straw

tracted by this alone.
All this needs only tho slightest allusion.
There is one argument tnat will nova its In
fluence, so doubt the investment would
nay. Troporty-holdors on Fifth would re
joice in it, and the tax-payers say "amen."
As the building noed not be wido, no ob

The following is a copy of the indenture

The indenture of apprentice between Francis

Wkbbtkb and Ckocertt No two characters,
says the Memphis liulktin, eouid be more dis
similar than those of Webster and Crockett.
One had penetrated to the profoundost depths
of the forest, nnd was apasdonate lover of its
wild delights. Crockett paid Webster a com
pliment tnat both pleased and amused him. It
is related that whan his celebrated speeob npon
Foote's resolutions was published, he sent a
copy ef it to Davy Croonett. Shortly after
ward Davy called upon him to make his an
knowlcdgmonts fur the favor remarking that
it was the only speeoh he bad evor been able
to read without tbe uld ot a dictionary. Mr.
Webster, it is said, frequently romarhod that
although, perhaps, a compliment was not in
tended, none was ever bestowed upon hiin that
he valued so highly.
