Fifth Reunion of the 10th Ohio at Ohio at
New Caiilislk, Ohio, Sept 8. The
glowing, threatening appearance of the
weather, combined with the fact that the
great annual encampment at Columbus Is
just at band, made this reunion of the bat
tery in number fewer than usual. The de
lay of trains Interfered very materially
with the programme In view. After a very
nice dinner at the Carlisle house the com
rades adjourned to the G. A B. hall, where
the association was called to order by the
president, Pomroy Mitchell. The roll was
called and thirty members being present,

utive committee to carry out the arrange
ments for the same. , A vote of thanks was
then eiven the visiting officers, and also
the same tendered the comrades and ladles
of New Carlisle, for the pleasant reception
giren the visiting comrades. After a few
remarks from different comrades, the fol
lowing ringing resolutions were passed by
the unanimous voice, and by a rising vote
of the entire association:
Whereas. It has reached us that certain
unprincipled parties are circulating reports
derogatory to the character of Gen. Alvln
I Uovey, and reflecting on his recora as a
soldier; therefore, be It
Besolved, By the surviving members of
the Sixteenth Ohio Battery, at our fifth an
nual reunion, that from personal knowledge
and from the fact that we served unuer mm
and was with him at the great battle of
"Champion Hills," then losing the captain
of our battery, we know the falsity of such
reports; and do hereby bear witness to his
skill, his ability as an, officer, and bis mag
nificent courage as a soldier. His care on
the march, his bravery on the field, and his
kindness after the storm of the battle bad
passed, has ensnrined him in our htart3 as
our ides1 of true manly greatness.

is hereby Instructed to have the above reso
lutions published In our papers, and a copy
of the same sent.to General Hovey.

friends hereabouts, and the following ac
count of his death, from the Dayton Jfbni-
tor, will be read with regret:
The venerable Methodist minister, Bev.
Maxwell P. Gaddis, passed away quietly at
bis home, in Oakwood, on Saturday even
ing, at the age ot 77 years, after a long,
useful and eventful career la the ministry.
The deceased was born in Lancaster
county, Pa., on September 9, 1811. In 1817
he removed with bis parents to Ohio. By
his mother's exertions the subject of this
sketch obtained an education and began to
teach school. From 1832 to 1835 he
worked in mercantile pursuits and
as a book-keeper. At Ripley, O.. his broth
er, Rev. John Gaddis, and his parents
joined the Methodist church, belonging to
the sect 01 seceders before that time. In
1824 he himself was converted at a camp
meeting near Maysville, Ky. On August
1, 1830, he received authority to act as ex
borter in the M. E. church. In 1835 be was
regularly licensed as a local preacher by
Kev. Leroy a worms ted.
It would take a large volume to describe
the labors of this holy .man throughout
Ohio. He traveled and preached on the
West Union. Scioto. White Oak and other

Xenia, was in the city on business. His
home is in the Greene county capital, bat
his placo of business is four miles east of

At this point he conducts a thriving busi
ness In the manufacture of rolled oats,
rolled wheat, wheat germ meal, breakfast
hominy and other farinaceous foods, be
sides feed for live stock. His mill em
ploys a large number hands, and he does a
very large trade in central and southern
Ohio. -All his products are manufactured
by a process of his own invention. His
business has rapidly increased and Mr.
Curria was forced to look around for a

man and given all the advantages
which the board of trade could afford tn
him. Mr. Currie and Secretary Paine can
vassed the city together fi.r an eligible site
for Mr. Carrie's business. He was most
favorably struck with the old Blount fe-
tory. on Warder street next to P. P. Mast
