Pugsley FINE APPEARANCE OF THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. 2 b of A, the up a Miss in the the way Tho weather was all that could bo desired, and everything was favorable for tho ob servance of Decoration Day. In Hillsboro, we think tho celebration was ono of the most magnificent that our pcoplo have ever witnessed. Hundreds from the surround ing country wero present, and everything plumed off pleasantly, far exceeding the ex pectations of thosa having the matter in charge The procession moved from tho Public Scpinro at 2 o'clock, in the following order : 1. Little Girls, with Decorating Com mittee. 2. Dodsonvillo Band. 3. Seott Dragoons.' 4. John M. liarrera Post, .G. A. 11. 15. Orator, Minister and Committee. fi. Memorial Associatiou and Veterans. 7. Citizens on foot. 8. Citizens in carriages. Tho graves at the Presbyterian Cemetery wero decorated by tho liltlo girls and a de tail of military, bsforo tho main procession tarted, which moved directly north to tho Catholic Cemetery. After decorating the raves there it proceeded to the Odd Fel lows section of tho Illllsboro Cemetery, nd then decorated the graves in tho Main emotery. Tho music of tho Dodsonville bnnd, hich now belongs to tho Thirteenth Regi ment, was very good, and tho Seott Dra- oons made their usual fine appearance ho G. A. It. turned out about thirty meu. They were distinguishable from tho citi- ns by their badges, worn on tho lapels of their coats, together with buttou-holo bon- juets. After the decorating of the graves a crowd of probably three thousand persons assembled at Spring Lawn, and tho exer cises were opened with, music aud the beau- iful and impressive religious ceremonies of tho G. A. It., conducted by Chaplain J. M. Hughey. After these exorcises Hon. J. J. Pugsley was introduced by Post Com mander E. Carson, of the G. A. It., and below will bo found his address in full : Fklj.ow Citizens : We aro here again, after the lnpso of another yoar, to do hon or to those who died for their country. Mny of those around mo wero the com rades, many tho parents, or other near rel atives, of tho brave meu who rest in this graveyard after their warfare for the Union, a Republican form of government, aud liberty. As you pass nround the graves in wluch death has reduced to dust the loved forms of your friends, yon are op pressed with a sense of personal bereave ment. Yon think of the vacant chair by the fireside, of tho homo clrelo broken up, of plaus of life interfored with, of hopes of bappiuoss disappointed. Tho child remembers tho father, whose advice aud assistance he has constantly needed, whose guiding hand would have directed him in the right way, from which he msy have wauderod often. Tho wife remembers the husband, whose loving heart would have shielded her from every sorrow, and whose siroug and resolute hands would havo driv en want from the homo of which it may be now an mniato. lue father aud mother lament the loss of their sous. Though all others should forget, they will not forget the darling boys who wero to be as staffs to their old ago, as gleams of sunlight through tho shadows of their declining years. The soldier remembers the beloved companion, who was tried as men are never tried in civil life, who never refused sympathy, eucourngemont, kinduous; who stood by his sido throughout thoso terrible years of doubt, danger aud conflict, ever faithful aud true, aud mourns the loss of a comrade and friend. And so, many of you have doubtless come here to-day, as you have come during many years in the past, nsyou will come tnrougliout nil tho remaining years of your lives, bringing in your hands the broken buds and blossoms of the opening summer, to lay upon the graves of the dead soldiers of the Union, not so much perhaps as a tribute of respect, ad niiratiou aud reverence for tho grand work that was accomplished, as an evidence of the tenderness of your own affection, and an emblem of blighted hnpo. It is right aud wiso thnt you should so como. Re membrance of the dead purifies the living. As we stand by tho sacred dust of those whom wo have loved, and our spirits com mune with theirs, our souls aro elevated, our hearts are ennobled. Friendship, Love the two purest spirits that brighten aud sweeten earth, cannot be too assiduously cultivated nor their memory too fondly cherished. But the timo will come, aud the period will not bo long in this country's history, when the personal associations aud the personal qualities, the attributes of mind and heart that inado these soldiers dear to thoir relatives and friends, will have boon utterly obscured by the mist of tirno, or live only in tradition, and when those rela tives and friends who no dearly loved them, aud who now bend with breaking hearts above their graves, will have joined them the tomb. When that time shall come, the ceremonies of this dav set apart forever for such purpose, will still be observed. Even then the citizens of this country will gather round the Uniou soldiorB1 graves, and place upon them the 6weetest nnd the fairest flowers of Spring aud regard them as the Pilgrim shrines of tho Nation Mucuiiii42jJiliiiii.iVsnnd Palest inqs. They will couu nue tou'ecoive'sucn regard. 1 or thoso soldiers fought to preserve uu divided the best rouiiti'v nn earth--in be hulf of the li st government in the world for a people! not incupible of apprneiating their sublime courago, patriotism ana sac rifices, and fiey wera elninontly successful in that conluet. t Our country, with it varied and delight ful climate;) with its feftile soil, rloh with tho undistijrbod accumulations il ngo W.

Tho' Un. publics were powerful but they flised that power constantly mil without pemdn to tramplo upon the rigMsof the wotik. r Their citizens were free imlled, and thfry rejoiced their freedom, but It was witUuxuljation, with pleasure nnd with prido that they dragged at their charitt-wheels,, iu helpless misery, tho chained aid bleedisig captive. "At the view of tholo RepuUics, nations trembled ; at the vie of oui, Immunity hopes." For tho genirous men who devis ed our form of goviiuinent, inado It not merely for their owd benefit not duly to socure ecpial political rights thonlxclvps and to their descendints. It was mhdo in part for that, but alsi to extetid its helpful arms nnd cheering voice to !ho poor and the oppressed of every land, ami say "Come!" If, in tlip slnij'gH for exidence there is no place lor you nity for your chilcfren, and lain a competency and parative comforri and ei your rights are ilisregnrd or denied by unjust hi would have a voice greater mightiest in tho control of erty and conduct, come I free America, a place has for you ; an asylum, a weleo no cportu iu woulf ob- ive in (com x, coin 4! If by tyf-ants, ws, and. you hau that tf the our own 'prop- tero, in Happy, been provided no and k home. It w'as fnr a Kfelrnuieiit so beiiilicent, as well ns for it country grand, that tho soldiers of the Union fought tlirouith out the four years of tho civil war, and conquered. They conquered, and many of them are still with us, and long may l.hoy remain to enjoy tho rich reward of their patriotism and valor; but A part sleep in their narrow colllus hero around us, and wo have to-day bedecked their graves with the most beautiful and fra grant flowers that the hand of alfoction could gather less beautiful than our inoniory of them, less fragrant than the breath of their immortal fame. Our soldiers were in a high degree suc cessful in accomplishing tho purposes for which they fought. They forced the abandonment, forever, let us hope, of the theory or idea of Secession, nndor which this country could have hen broken into helpless fragments, powerless alike to protect themselves from their neighbors' enmity ami from loreixn foes; and they made effective tho proclamation of Abra ham Lincoln abolishing the chiof cause of Secession human slavery. It does seem strange, ns we look back upon tho past, that loss than twenty years ago the worst form of Blnvery ex isted in this country ; that in a free Ko- men could hold other men in ; its we as of a no the to so our Cublio ondago. It seems almost incomprehen sible that under a government tho foun dation stone of which was freedom, a government in which tho predominating Idea, runnini' throughout its entire structure, was the elevation of manhood, slavery could be tolerated tor a moment.. flow was it possible that under a rov eminent such as ours, devoted to human Irecdom, a part of the peoplo could be permitted for three Loneratioiis to oxer cise absolute power over the rights of others? IhaUthey could and did de prive them, of liberty and all rights? That millions ot citizens, admitted by thoso who trained our government to have the same inalienable rights as oth ers, could be bought and sold like cattle, could lie ollerect on mo auction oiock to tho hiirhest bidder? That tho dearest family relations could be broken up, that husbands ana wives couia oe separated. that parents could be dragged away from their children, that a child could be taken Irom its mothoi 's arms and sold in a distant State, there perhaps to be lashed to death in servitudo, with no one to nit A helping hand to save? I am glad all that has passed away : mar, ic is no ions; nocessarv for any citizen of this country to flee in the night to the soil of the British Umpire to find liberty ; that the American Kepublio hug Ueoouie a Repub lic in fact as well as iu name; mat "ine slavery-stained rocord of ninety years has been washed clean as polished amethyst." I am glad that now, by reason ol the heroic deeds ot the soldiors of the Union, even the down-trodden slave fin look up to the emblem of a Kreat ltepublio. and can hear sweot music, can hear the itweet song of fruo dom iu every ripple ot its loids The work of the Union soldiers has been appreciated by a grateful people. The fruits of their victory have beon or aro being sncurod to us and to the world. The amendments to uie constitution have been made to wisely that they are now admitted by all persons to be just. Who will now claim that slavery should bo revived ? that any citizen of tho Unit ed States should be denied the privileges of citizenship? that the public credit and honor, which are as the lite of a nation, should be impaired ? Those amend ments will soon be not only accepted, but obeyed in letter and spirit, In every part ol the union. And the tune will come it is the duty of every patriot to hasten the 001111111; ot tho lime wlion not only justice and peace, but eood will, shall prevail among all tho citizens of this country. I ue-union cause will not have obtained a full measure of success until tho poople of the North and of the South, as well as of the East and of the West, shall be united In a common brotherhood, as they are doubtless al ways to remain united iu the same des tiny. We acknowledge our ueut 01 gratiiuue to the soldiors ol tho Union lor the past the present and tho future. It Is becoin ine in us to do so. They Bowed the seed, we reap the fruit or victory. We have an undivided country, the finest on the globe. We have a government, not tor one man or one class of men, but "of the people and for tho people." We have a Hag which is ranked not among those ol second-class nations, nor with the flags of those countries whose glory la only in the ruins that remain of the past, but which floats the equal ol the emblems ol great empires the Hag of a proud, a mighty, an imperial Republic. Behind us are the clouds and storm of war; around us aro happiness and prosperity ; before us are the sunny paths ol peace. We may confidently expect that our country will exhibit we should by all moans in our power aid it to illustrate a nobler civilization than the world has yet seen. But what compensation are all the-10 blessings to those wli) died to soeuiej them to others? who could not live to take part In or enjoy them? Existence was as precious to them as to us, kindred as dear, the world as bright; but they nva nn hII and died tor their country and for liberty. What recompense did they receive? How were they coinpen sated in their exchange of the affections, the pleasures, the hopes and honors of life, "the bloom, the beauty, the verdure or earth, the music of the air and ot the waters," for a coffin and the silent grave Some were taken in middle lite, Irom the midst of broad fields of usefulness, around them the ripened fruit and Hie goideu harvest ; others while standing uu the threshold of manhood, ('When life waa in its apring, lielure ouo juy or hope had taken wiiijj."

Election of Delegates to the State Convention, in AND THE SELECTION OF A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEEMAN. Pursuant to tho call published in the News, the Republicans of the county met at the Court House last Saturday afternoon to solect dolegatos to the State Convention. Considering that the weather was so favor able for the farmers to work iu the fields, the attendanoe was very flattering, repre sentatives from almost all the townships be ing preseut. An active interest was niaui festcd, and we could see that the Republi cans are alive to the interests of the party and the principles it represents, and are going into the campaign with a determina tion to win. We aro glaa to see sucb nn interest manifested, as we know the Repnb- licaug cau win in this couuly every time if they make a proper effort. The object of the meeting was stated by Clerk J. M.

Mrs. Loyd was boru near West Jefferson, Madison couuty, Ohio, July 21, 1834, and was united iu marriage to the Rev. Thomas 0. Loyd September 15, 1852. Mrs. Loyd was favored with religious training, aud in her fourteenth year she professed conversion and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which she remained au exemplary member to the end of life. Her early religious experience fitted her well for the duties and experience of a minister's wife, so that fur thirteen? years she was a helpmate to her husbaud iu his pastoral work. During the lust sixteen years Mrs. Loyd has been a resident of Hillsboro. Her conversation throughout her sickness evinced the clearness of her mind, aud gave great delight to those who heard them. The Sabbath be fore her death Mrs. Loyd with her family received the Sacrament for the last time, aud was greatly comforted by it. Her fu neral services were conducted by her fiastor, Dr. Starr, at the family resideuee, on ast Sat irday afternoon. A husband, five daughters and two sons survive Mrs. Loyd, and to meet her family unbroken in heaven, was the constant desire and prayer of her heart. To such as Mrs. Loyd, "The grave itself is but a covered bridge, Leading from light to light through a brief darkness." L. S. C. The regular meeting of the 0.
