Tho presentation took pl.aca at the ico cream restaurant of Fred. Good rich in the following manner : At about 8 o'clock Mr. Barlow, Mr. Kimball, and the employes, to gether with a few who had been invi ted, repaired to the restaurant for tho purposo of taking a dish of ice cream at tho expenso of Mr. Kimball, when the Band put iu an appearance, and furnished musio for the occasion. Then camo tho cream, which Mrs. Goodrich alone knows how to make. Then followed tho presentation, with a few very appropriate remarks by Rev. F. N. Barlow, in which he stated that under Mr, Kimball's chargo thero had never been ono com plaint from tho men, that his face was always pleasant and smiling, his words cheering, and that no ono of them had ever received a single' cross word from him in auy manner. Tho mill had been built to tho entire satisfac tion of tho proprietor, and in short; there was no room for complaint from any quarter. That in their apprecia tion of his gentlemanly deportment toward all, and tho faithfulness with which he had managed tho wholo af fair, they had considered him worthy of some token of regard from them, and therefore tho present. Mr. Kimball was somewhat sur prised, as ho had known nothing of what was to como until Mr. Barlow stepped forward with tho gift. How ever, ho answered tho remarks of tho revcrcnod gentleman in a brief but appropriate manner, thanking them very kindly for their friendship and present, and hoped they would never have cause to regret of presenting the token. . Some remarks were made by sev eral others present, among them Hon. S. L. Carpenter. Then more ico cream, after which tho Band again fa vored tho party, when they all sought their homes, highly pleased with tho evening's entertainment. Fatal Arridrnt. Wo clip the following from the Chronicle, published at Sterling, 111., of dato Aug. 3. It will be remem bered that Mr. Apthorp was former ly pastor of tho Congregational Churcli of this city, and tho children were well known here and beloved by all : "On Friday morning last, five child ren of ages ranging from fivo to nine years, wcro at play in tho sand-pit on tho premises of Richard Arcy, Jr., in Colon, when tho bank cai ed in and completely buried three of them, tho dthcr two being covered up td th waist and shoulders. "Willie Wells, who was least covered, managed to dig out, aud running to tho house, some twenty rods, told what had hap pened. His mother ran to tho road and gavo the alarm to several men who wero working on the street, while tho hired girl ran to the pit, and had released tho youngest, Carl Apthorp, who was partially buried. Tho meu from tho road at onco set to work vig orously to uncover tho others, and af ter removing about four feet of sand and earth they were found, one stand ing nearly erect, and the others pros trato, with lifo extinct, though the bodies wcro still warm and limber. The names of tho little ones thus sud dcnlv snatched from fond parents, arc : Emma Wells, daughter of Mrs. llich ard Arey, Jr., and her former hus band, Stephen Wells, who died from hardship and exposure iu tho army, and the two oldest sons, (Allio and Grant,) of Mr. Apthorp, a Congrega tional minister, who recently came from-Michigan, and leaving his family with friends here, had gone to Iowa to look up a future home. Telegrams wero immediately sent to him, but as his exact locality was unknown, it is not certain at this writing, on Satur day that ho will get tho word in timo to see tho faces of his sons before they aro buried. Tho bodies were carried to the residenco of It. II. Jenkins, who is brother-in-law to Mr. Apthorp, and foster father to Mrs. Arey, whero they wcro packed in ico to await the arrival of tho stricken father. A more sadly beautiful sight wo never saw than that of thoso thrco sweet faces, in a row, serenely beautiful in their unwaking sleep, just as they wero caught by tho restless sands, in tho midst of their innocent, happy sports. It is duo to Mr. Arcy to say that he has always been very careful never to i leave his pit in such a conditian that a caving in was possible, always throw ing tho bank down where it was likely to fall, beforo leaving it ; but on tho morning of tho accident, sortie parties from this city had taken out a load or two and, unknown to Mr. Arey, and doubtless with little thought of the fearful consequences that might follow, had left tho bank in a dangerous con dition. 'P. S. Mr. Apthorp arrived on Monday, and the funeral took place in tho afternoon of that day. They sleep as they died together, side by side. Tho attendance was very large." Early Friday morning, while Po liceman Sheridan was attempting to arrest a negro, named Oeorgo Brown, for disturbing tho peace, ho was stab bed in the left side, receiving an ugly wound. Brown then ran, but tho of ficer pursued and captured hira after shooting him twice, onco in tho shoul der and onco in tho abdomen. Both men arc dangerously hurt. LOOK, LOOIi, LOOIi.
