DEATH OF DAVID OOBUAM, TDIi OLDEST MAN
On the 2.th of last month, Mr. David
Ootham departed this life. Although 05
years old, ho retained his faoulties to a re
markable degree, and during bis last Bickness
often spoke of the time (82 years ago) when
his father moved from Oape Cod on to the
farm here which has ever since been bis homo.
His wife (Serviah Crowell) survives him, aged
'JO. They celebrated tho 70th anniversary of
their marriage on the 14th of Octobor last.
Three children are still living, who united in
making the last days of their parents pleas
ant. Mr. Ootham fully appreciated theso ef
forts of his children, and during his sickness,
for three months being unable to lie down, he
was continually troubled because ho "made
so much trouble for others," but bo bore his
sufferings patiently. He was very agile for
one of his years, stepping almost as quickly
as a boy and without the aid of a cane. Last
summer he had entiro charge of the garden,
which any one might have been proud to own j
and a few times he was seen in early morning
with Bcytbe in haud. Always energetic him
self, he had no patieuce with those who were
content to eat the bread of idleness. He took
a lively interest in town and county affairs to
the very last, anxiously awaiting the arrival
of the papers, and reading them all assiduous
ly without the aid of spectacles. No worthy
cause ever appealed to him for aid in vain,
and he was esteemed by all for his honorable
and upright life.
Dr. Mark Itanney, superintendent of the
asylum for the insane at ML Pleasant, Iowa,

At " o'clock the delegates convened at
Grand Army hall, and the roll was called.
Col. Geo. W. Hooker, department command
er, occupied tho chair. Brief remarks were
made by Gov. Farnbam and Commander
Corliss of New York, and committees were
appointed to report a list of officers, a coun
cil of administration and delegates to tho na
tional encampment, to ue presented at tho
meeting Friday morning.
At 7 o'clock tho delegates formed in lino of
march at tho Brooks House, and, headed by
the Brattleboro military band, proceeded to
the town hall, where tho camp-fire was to be
nolo. Aitnougn tno weatner was stormy, the
large number of citizens in attendance sufficed
to fill the hall to Its full seating capacity.
The exercises began with a march by the
band, after which prayer was offered by ltev.
A. B. Truax. "The Flag of the Bold and
Free" was then sung by a local quartette com
posed of Messrs. J. A. Maxham, Geo. Emery,
C. 11. Stevens and F. W. Brazor, who were
called out n second time.
Col. Hooker then introduced Chaplain. in-
Chief Loveriug of Massachusetts, who deliv
ered the principal address of the occasion.
Ills speech was largely made up of anecdotes
of tho war, both pathetic and humorous
many of them from his personal experience
illustrative, not only of the heroism and en
durauco of our northern soldiers, but of the
noble principles which animated and sustain
ed them duriug the long and bloody contest.
Tne eloquent words uy w Lien tbo speaker
recalled to mind the grand events and heroic
inciduts of the war were strongly ro-enforc-cd
during his remarks by the display of sev
eral interesting relics which came into his
possession while engaged in the duties ot
chaplain. His remarks were greeted with
following Chaplain Lo vermes address.
Mr. Maxham sang a spirited solo. "At Mur
freesboro," nith orgau accompaniment, which
brought oat an encore.
Gov. Farnhain was next introduced and
made au admirable little speech, alluding in a
complimentary manner to the work aud char
acter of the Grand Army organization, and
calling to mind the fact that, Irom the nature
of its membership, it must soon be among
the recollections of the past ; that doubtless
there were in the audience beforo him persons
who would one day see the last veteran car
ried to hii grave. He closed by urging upon
the youth of the country a proper care for
the remembrauce of those who fought aud
Buuered to save tno nation.
Col. Hooker next introduced Commander-
in-Chief Merrill, who made a few remarks in
which wit and pathos were happily mingled.
In his reference to the Grand Army, its char
acter, purposes and membership, ho remark
ed that, while, he was fond of regarding bis
own state of Massachusetts as leading in all
wortny directions, sno was beuiud ermont
in one respect, turning to Gov. Farnbam

At the conclusion of the camp fire exer
cises adjournment was bad to the Brooks
Houso, where, by Col. Hooker's invitation, all
the old comrades iu-arms present sat down
to an elegant banquet, together with a large
number of invited guests, including gentle
men from abroad and prominent citizens of
Brattleboro. Some 270 plates were laid and
every seat was taken. On no previous occa
sion has the well-appointed Brooks House
dining-room contained so large and so bril
liant a company. Grace was said by ltev.
W. II. Collins, aud whilo the gustatory pleas
urea were in progress the military band gave
selections iu the adjoining hall-way. When
the implements of the table bad been lain
aside, Col. Hooker, as master of ceremonies,
arose and gave as the first toast of the eve
ning, "Tho President of the United States,"
and called on Col. Haskins, the government
representative as United States Attorney for
the district of Vermont, to respond. After a
few pleasant remarks, intimating that he did
not know why be, a representative of the ju
dicial department, should be called on to
speak for the executive department of the
government, Col. Haskins went on to say
that. the President of the United States is the
embodiment of the opinions and the will of
the people as expressed through the ballot
box. He is the servant of the people; it is
his highest duty to see that the greatest lib
erty and the. broadest equality aro extended
to all the people. Under our peculiar Ameri
can idea the chief execuUve office is open to
tne opportunity aud tne ambition of every
citizen. George Washington was the first
representative of our grand republican prin
ciples, and none has been greator or moru be
loved except it be Lincoln. He. Lincoln.
came direct from the people and he carried the
great American idea with him through weary
years till his noble heart was almost broken.
He carried it with him to martyrdom, and
with the grand trophy of four million broken
chains he went up on high to lay them on
the altar of eternal fame. This same idea
was embodied in another man whose name,
Col. Haskins said, might surely be pro
nounced in euth a presence Ulysses S.
Grant. He carried this idea with him from
Donelson to Appomattox, and when the vic
tory was won tne old soldiers of the llepub
lio bore bim up in their arms before the peo
ple and said, "Take him; this is our Hora
tiusl" After concluding a glowing eulogy of
Grant, the soldier and statesman. Col. Has
kins paid a like eloquent tribute to the lamen
ted uarneld, aud closed with an earnest ex
presaion of confidence in the wisdom and
patriotism of President Arthur and bis abili
tv to cive the countrv an administration
which will make all the people prosperous
ami happy. Col. Haklus spoke with great
force aud was frequently and warmly ap
plauded. As he closed the quartette gave a
selection, and Col. Hooker then said he
would next call up one ot the valorous old New
Hampshire "Floodwoods," Mr. W. H. Alex,
ander. 8om( thing direotly to the point was
expected as Mr, Alexander's venerable head
and erect form rose up in the ball, and the
company were not disappointed, for the house
"came down" with a vengeance when he
said, with emphasis, "Mr. Commander, I
don't know much, but I do know enough not
to makea speech in this orowd."
"The oiator of the evening" was next giv

Cowmander-iu-cbief Merrill responded, re-
ferring, after a few witty allusions to other
speakers, to tne handsome growth which the
Grand Army has made In the department ot

(as a member ot the State Senate) had to do
with legislation and furnishing the "siuews nf

M". Harris spoke with much feeling of his

made many or tne narrow street imnassauie.
At Hartford the storm was the most severe
for many years. At Providenco 18 inches
fell. In New Hampshiro it was from 18 to 21
inches. There was a good deal of a blockade
in Now York and Brooklyn. The wind blew

of "training," and with a crowd of backers
and betters, had a pnz3 fight at Mississippi

to fight near New Orleans, but this was
abandoned because tho Louisiana laws forbid
prize-fighting. The governor of Mississippi
issued a proclamation forbiddiug the fight
and orderiug tho sheriff "to stop it at nil haz

sent. The rinir was pitched iu front of a hotel
and the contest coutinued 20 minutes. and was
witnessed by thousands. Ityan failed to come
to time on the ninth round, and Sullivan had
won a comparatively easy victory. Few will
