A Heroic Son Looses his Life in Endeavoring to Save his Father's Property. THE LITTLE TOWN WILD WITH EXCITEMENT, A REPORTER ON THE SCENE. Lust uight about ten o'clock tho livery stable of Mr. George Armstrong, situated on the Main street of Bniubridgo, from some cause unknown, caught fire, iu which a young son of Mr. Armstrong, aged about sixteen, lost his life, besides tho total de struction of the stable and it contents, there being iu the stable at the time of the fire, seven head of horses, live of whirhbo longed to Mr. Armstrong and two to a man named Flock, also a number (if wagons and buggies. The first iutiinatiou of the fire was caused by the loud stamping of the horses which was iilainlv heard bv Mr. Armstrong's son Tom, who was iu bed at his home about a huudred yardH away from the stable at the time. Thinking that some thing was wrong, he hurriedly slipped ou his pants, and iu this attire he rushed to the stable, and throwing open the doers, dis covered the entire inside of tho stable to be a mass of flames. Nothing daunted by this state of affairs, ho went in, trying to save the horses. This was the Inst seen of himuutd this morning when the flames had diod they discovered his body iu the middle of the ruins burnt to a crisp. Besides the burning of the stable the entire block west of the Rockhold building is a total rniu. Mr. Armstrong in this, his loss and bereave ment will have the sincore sympathy of the wholo commuity. Ho is well known iu this vicinity as ho drove tho hack betweeu here and Bainbridge for a number of years. LATER. town wild with excitement, the fire of last nigh being the most serious blow that tho little village has ever sustained. Mr. Armstrong, whose stable was destroyed and whose sou lost his life iu the rlames by his heroic endeavor to save tho property of his father, returned home last night from Chillicotho whero ho had been iu attend ance at tho Jones' trial, just iu time to see his all swallowed up by tho flumes. He also very likely saved the life of a younger son by restraining him from going into tho huruing building iu search and rescue of his elder brother. The boy who perished in the flames was burned beyond recognition, as one of his legs and arms were burned entirely off. The total loss of property is variously es timated at from $10, OnO to $15,000, with very little or no insurance. ' Death of John Morrow. Mr. John Morrow, tho subject of this sketch, died at his residence in the south ern suburbs of this city, June 3d, 18H4, at 12 o'clock in. Deceased was born in Pennsylvania, September 2d, 1H0G, and at the ago of two years emigrated with his father to this State, who settled on a large tract of land near the towu of New Market, this county, at a time when civilization had made but little progress, since that time Mr. Morrow has been a resident of this county, and at his death was ouo of its oldest citizens, and Olio who had witnessed tho change that had converted a native wilderness into a highly improved aud densely populated land. He was united in marriage March 11th, 18110, to Martha M. Shields, from which union eight children were born, five of whom, Mrs. neury Chancy, Mrs. A. T. Cunningham, and R. W. Morrow, of this county, aud Mrs. Mills Gardner, of Wash ington C. H., and W. H. Morrow, of Gib bon, Neb., still survive him. He united with the Presbyterian Church at New Market iu tho year 1833, and was a consistent and active member, as will be evidenced by the fact that ho was ever the recipient of its most honored aud impor tant offices, being an Elder for many years preceding the time of his moving to Hills boro iu 18G0, when his membership was transferred to the Presbyterian Church at that placo. Mr. Morrow was during the existence of the Whig party, ouo of its most ardent members, and at the time of the breaking up of that party he ideutified himself with the Republicans, and so remained a faith ful member of that organization until his death, serving hiB party nud hiB county long and well. Honest aud straightforward in his deal iugB, deceased was held iu high esteem by all with whom he had occasion to deal in the business affairs of life, and be over and at all times enjoyed tho confidence and rc- Bpect of those by whom he wis surrounded, on account of his never s- rving qualities and characteristics ths' forbade tho doing of anything that w , even iu its appeai auce, dishonorable e di-houcst. During his ill j ho was always resigned and patient, a' a when he reached the end of life's voyage, with scarcely a struggle he ceased to exist. So aoftlv death succeeded life iu him, lie did iait dream uf Heaven and he was there. The funeral services were conducted from the house, Thursday, Juno fith, Rev. McSurely officiating, after which his re mains were followed by a longi oucoiirse of relatives aud friends, to their last rest ing place iu the Hillsboro cemetery, there calmly and undisturbed by tho turmoil aud cares of this busy world, to await the resurrection that shull bring tho reward in Heaven, so richly earned by a life of purity on earth.

Keno is & good game, and is running nearly every dav and night in our midst. It certain ly should tie stopped on Sunday, and if the Marshal will do a little promenading up aud down Washington street on Sunday afternoon, he will hear a monotonous voice crying out the numbers 4-11-44, and can easily locale it. Is the Muyor aware of such proceedings? It is a aliHiuo and disgrace to this couimuuity to allow it to continue on the Sabbath day.

It appears that he bad become dcHjiondeiit over his continued illness, and desired to end his days with the aid of a large revolver. The trigger was pulled three ditler- cut tlniea, witn the muzzle pointing uireclly at ion ...tun,:,,, k.. tiiaiu ,, ,v,t.ti i,7- luncw vo iL-nHinii iu iiiu oeiiiaiiu, novi niiieii lb was taken fiom him. Ilia Royal Highness, Judge Ditty, ami his Honor Mayor Harnian, were in town a few hours on Thursday. It ia aaid that Mayor Harmon aspires to tho otlico of Prosecuting Attorney, and was just looking over the held in this vicinity, at tho same tune familiarizing hiuisalf in the pump-handle business. Tho reputation of Mr. Harman as Mayor of Hills boro ia well known here, ami he will certainly rt-eive a full vote in case he gets a nomination.

Iu about four necks the glorious fourth will be here, and as yet no rrni g.-nii ntK have been made for its celebration. Two years since, a purse of nearly two hundred and littv dollars was raised, ami everybody remembers with pleasure how the dav and evening were passed, and whut a vast throng of people visited this place to witness the pyrotechnic display. Willi a little effort on the part of a few citizens, the occasion could be repeated, and thus bring a crowd of people here instead of everv person visiting the surrounding towns on the above named day. Will the cil ort be made '.' It occasionally occur that Dome individual, at all times noted for truth ami veraeitv, gives a news gatherer an item w hich upon thorough investigation, proves without the slightest foundation whatever, hut on the contrary a tissue of fashhoods. Last week we were fur nished such information, relative to certain work recently performed by the new cemeterv auperintendant, Mr. llichards, and in justice to him we hasten a correction. The informa tion, relative, to the resod.ling and otherw ise rebuilding of a certain grave, came to the writer in such a direct manner that we had no inclination whatever to further investigate its truthfulness and therefore made use of it accordingly. That there is no truth in tho information, we are now fully satistied aud after a thorough investigation of the case, we find that the newly elected superintendent had nothing whatever to do with the present con dition of tho grave mentioned, and of course is in no wise responsible for the manner iu which the work. was done. We have no antip athy to tho present superintendent, ami fully believe that with experience he will till the position very Well. On tho other hand wo have objections to the manner in which the former Superintendent was peiemtoriiy dis missed, and have seen nothing to change our opinion iu thia respect. The Republican Convention at Chicago laHt week, was the all absorbing theme of conver- sati and discussed alike by both Democrat and Republicans. "Any news from the Con vention '!" "Have they commenced balloting yet ?" and various other similar questions were anked no Ichs than fifty times everyday. On Erulay morning arrangements we're made to furnish the result of each ballot to Mr. W, 11. Adams, who would place them upon a bulletin board for the benetit of the public. It waa just twelve o'clock when tho first ballot com menced coming and tho result was received with much satisfaction, owing to this being a strong Blame locality. Each succeeding ballot was likewise enthusiastically received, and when the fourth ballot was ofliciallv announced excitement ran high, and every Republican iu town save Mr. James Freshaur", waa delighted over tho nomination and Baid the work of the Convention was well done. The news waa so satisfactory to the lit publicans that arrange ments were quickly mado for a jollification consisting of pyrotechnics and the tiring of tifty guns. The Wilson CadetB also assisted in the good work by the ceaseless tiring of proba bly twenty-live rouuds. The Democracy think the boom a little premature and say "Ho laughs best, etc." Mr. James l reshaiir haa very strong likea and dislikes, and being a particular admirer of Hon. John Sherman, declares he will not vote for Illume and Logan. A good joke ia told at the expense of Gwin Coyner, the great stock buyer of Lvndon. Everybody knows (iwin, and by hia fair deal ings and prompt pay, has made manv wurin friends iu and about the classic shades' of the abovo named place. As Gw in. as he is famil iarly called, buys hogs, mostly, he is contin ually solicitious as to their comfort while in transit, as well as while remaining in the stock pens awaiting the tram which shall take them to the market. The present shipping facili ties at Lyndon relative to watering atock are wretched, according to Gwin'a notion, and for several w eeks effort.- have b. en made to im prove them. One day last week I iwin dropped in tho oiliee of the C, W. A 11., and among other things spoke of having made several requests that a pump be put in the stock pons at Lyndon. Mr. Samuel rierson. of Chilli cotho, not' d for his windy stories, and an adi pt iu practicing a joke, 'quickly look m the situation, and representing himself as tho Vice President of the road, asked for a state ment of what was necessary at Lyndon to atlord shippers better facilities, for shipping stock. In a moment Gwin'a eyes enlarged and Willi pencil ami paper a well was soon located in the stock pens, and alter a short conversa tion instructions were given by Vice l'resident l'ierson for the iiiiin, diato coiistruciion of a well, as located by .Mr. Coyner. Mr. l'ierson further stated that upon arrival at Lyndon he would survey the ground, and the work coni-ineiH-ed at once; turthermore a force pump would be placed therein aud everything arranged in a manne r cntii ely satisfactory to the stock shippers. Gwin was so highly elated over the bright prospects that he never once thought of ihe business in which Mr. l'ierson was engaged, when cal l ) nig one of las large sample cases tilled with paper bags of all ihs criptions, and weighing fully seventy-live pounds, from the depot room io the caboose ou way freight. On the way over to Lvndon, l'ierson could hold iu no longer and told Gwin his business waa that of a commercial traveler, and he was not Vice President as represented. Gwin now claiina that he suspected iiomcthihg; I was wrong, especially when l'ierson picked up hia large grip. It proved a cupital joke aud , CIWIU IOOK 11 111 gOOll part. Greenfield Market.
