LOVED AND LOST. Lightly fold the little tresses From the death pale brow, Willie cannot heed caresses Which are lavished on him now. Softly move as though listening For his gentle call, Lightly as an infant slumbers Let our footsteps fall. Bring the purest, sweetest flowers - Emblematic of truth. For little Willie whom has perished, In his handsome youth. Seek the spot where in the springtime Blossom the violets fair, Where the mosses are the greenest, Lay our darling there.

Suicide. Mr. Cornelius MERICLE, of Malloryville, town of Dryden, committed suicide last Friday by means of a rope suspended from the rafter of his house, during the absence of his family, consisting of a wife and several children. He was about 30 years of age, and being in poor health and circumstances at times expressed a determination to kill himself. He had let the rope down through a knot hole in the floor, into the sitting room, which, being too long, he had shortened, by winding it around the handle of a pitchfork. Upon the return of his family he was found hanging by the neck, near a chair, his eyes protruding from their sockets, and life extinct. He was placed on a bed by Mr. WADE, and Mr. MACK, where a coroner's inquest was held over the body.

In a recent No. of the Republican, we read with regret, in the verdict of the jury which set upon the case of Cyrus GILBERTSON, who died from accidental poison, a statement which seemed to connect John ATCHISON, at least indirectly, with his accidental poison. We were present during the inquest, and can
therefore positively affirm that there was not a particle of testimony adduced to warrant any such conclusion. It is true that such an effort was made, but nineteen-twentieths did not believe anything of the kind. He gave his testimony like an honest man, and came off without a mar upon his excellent character. Few men are more worthy - few have more friends.

He was one of those interesting children whom everybody loved, and his sudden departure for the world beyond, has brought sadness and sorrow to bereaved hearts. Yes,
There is weeping on earth for the lost, There is bowing in grief to the ground, But rejoicing and praise id the sanctified [....?] For a spirit in Paradise found! Though brightness has passed from the earth, Yet a star is new-born in the sky, And a soul has gone home to the land of its birth Where are pleasures and fullness of joy! And a new harp is strung, and a new song is given To the breezes that float o'er the gardens of Heaven H.C.G.

Killed by the Cars. - James L. BLY, of Greene, was struck by the D.L.& W. express train going south on Saturday evening last, and probably instantly killed. His body was thrown some distance from the track, but was not much mutilated. The accident occurred some two miles north of the village, and when first seen he was standing between the arils, but paid no attention to the warning whistle, and it was too late to stop the train, which was on a curve at the time. By some it is supposed to have been a deliberate suicide; by others that he was intoxicated; while the verdict of the Coroner's jury on Monday evening, was that he was laboring under aberration of mind at the time of his death.
Deceased was charged with burning a barn belonging to J. D. VanVALKENBURGH, in Greene, last summer - that gentleman having been an administrator in an estate in which BLY was interested - was indicted and under bail, and his trial was to have taken place at the County Court now in session in this village.

The Willett Suicide. - The Whitney's Point Reporter of last week, contains the following particulars of the suicide of Mr. SHEVALIER:-
" On Sunday, May 7th, Christopher SHEVALIER, of the town of Willett, Cortland Co., was found dead in a barn, hung with a cable chain. As near as we can learn, the circumstances are as follows: Mr. SHEVALIER lived with his mother in the west part of the town of Willett. On Saturday he said to his mother that he would go to the woods and split some rails. As he went out his mother heard iron rattle, but thought nothing of it, supposing he was going to work, as he had said. Night came, but Christopher did not. Morning came, and he was still among the missing. At or near noon he was found in the barn just across the road from the house, and from appearances it is supposed that he hung himself soon after leaving the house. Christopher SHEVALIER enlisted August 10th, 1862, as a private in the 157th N.Y. Infantry, Company C, for the term of three years, or during the war. Was mustered in Sept. 17, 1862. Received from the town of Willett, as bounty, the sum of twenty-seven dollars. He was honorably discharged July 10th, 1865. It was said of him that he was a faithful soldier. Christopher could defend the country, but could not defend himself. His greatest enemy was rum, which is supposed to be the cause of his self-destruction."

To The Memory Of Mottie. One year ago I clasped thy hand In friendship and in truth; I gazed upon thy placid face, So full of gentle youth; Yet as I gazed, my heart well knew Thy days upon the earth were few. I knew thee from thy cradle; A boy of truth, whose word Was sacred pledge forever. Each kindly impulse stirred Within thy soul, so true and bright, Giving to others sweet delight. O, deeply will thy mother feel The void within her breast; Thy father, who did fondly hope To see thee bear a part In life and manhood by his side - His staff in age, his joy, his pride. Thy loving sisters, oft with joy In old familiar strain, Mingled their girlish voices With thine in sweet refrain; To them will memory and tears bring, Their harp has now a broken string. One hope is left to those who mourn:- The joyous hope the Christian feels, When all of earthly joy has flown - When earthly balm doth cease to heal. There is a home beyond the skies, Where love's clear object never died.. Farewell; farewell; may sunshine creep Into the hearts of those you leave, To heal the wounds so sore and deep; To make resigned those hearts bereaved God giveth us joy for a day; Blessed be His name, He taketh away.

On Saturday evening last, an only son and child, (Eddie) of Mr. Charles TANNER, was killed in a mysterious manner. He had but a few moments previously left home, and was in the road near the Thomas JONES school house, where the farm team, in the hands of the hired man, attempted to run away. He was not seen at any time by the teamster. The supposition is that he received a blow in some manner while the team was passing, as he was found in an insensible condition by the roadside, soon after. He was taken home. Not a mark or bruise was found on his person. Drs. BRADFORD and REED were with him during the eight hours that he survived. He vomited considerable blood, and no doubt died from the effects of internal hemorrhage. He was 8 years of age. This family have the sympathy of this community in their sad bereavement. - Marathon Independent.

On Tuesday of last week, Mr. Jedediah IRISH, of Skaneatles, one of the wealthiest and best known farmers of that section, left Glen Haven in an open boat in company with a New York gentleman. It was subsequently ascertained that neither of the gentlemen ever arrived at the Glen, and as a hat supposed to belong to Mr. IRISH was found floating in the lake toward the evening of the same day, it was naturally conjectured that some mishap had befallen the party, and boats were sent out in all directions to search for the missing men. When opposite Saw Mill Point a boat was spied upon the shore which proved to be the one in which the party started from Skaneatles the day before. It was soon ascertained that the boat in question had drifted ashore the night before, keel upwards, and was grounded to await a claimant. When the party of searchers arrived at the village these particulars were conveyed to Mr. IEISH' friends, and it is feared that he was lost in the lake. The theory is that the boat, which is said to be unseaworthy, not having been built for sails, was struck by a squall somewhere off Saw Mill Point and capsized. Later advices state that both men were drowned.

The shadow has fallen upon this household and one of its emblems has been shut out. How dark that shadow is, and how yearningly the heart seeks after its sunbeam, we can only imagine. I well remember the babe as I used to see it, when it was in full health. I remember the peculiar sweetness of its little face, so lovingly did it twine about your heart. I cannot help asking myself, has that little life gone? Is that all we are to have of little May? No! No! She is not dead. He who has said, "Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not," has need of her; so he took her to himself, to be one of the bright jewels he has gathered together, to beautify his palace. The sweet flower lent to you for a little while to adorn your home, and which was so tenderly cherished there, has been transplanted to the heavenly garden, where it will expand into a more wonderous beauty than any earthly culture can give it. The great and good gardener has taken upon Himself the culture of your child. W.J.K.

On Monday morning a telegram was received here from James S. WARDEN, Esq., at Irving, Kansas, announcing the sad news hat his brother Randall had been drowned the day previous, while bathing in the river. Our whole village was shocked at the intelligence, a the young man was a favorite with all who knew him. The grief of his parents was overwhelming.
The deceased had only left his home here a month previous to his sad death, on a visit to his brother at Irving, and to examine the fine milling property which his father had [built?] up and put in successful operation, intending it as a present to Randall upon the attainment of his majority, which would have occurred in a few months.
The funeral ceremonies took place on Wednesday afternoon, at the residence of Gen. WARDEN. Nearly the whole population of Darlington was in attendance, besides friends and family from other towns, and many of Randall's classmates from Madison University. All the business houses were closed, as a token of regard for the deceased. The funeral was the largest ever held in this section, and every person in attendance was a sincere mourner.
The services were conducted by Rev. M. ROWLEY, of this village, assisted by Rev. H. Stone RICHARDSON, of Janesville, and was very affecting and impressive. - Darlington (Wis.) Democrat.

The writ sets forth that for a term of twenty years, Mr. GRAVES has held an illicit intercourse with the wife of GUILE.
This matter so preyed upon the mind of GRAVES that he became somewhat nervous this morning, and as supposed, at about 10 o'clock A.M., entered the bedroom adjoining his sitting room and with a razor cut his throat from ear to ear.

Small Pox in Pitcher. The Norwich correspondent of the Binghamton Times says: Some little alarm exists in the town of Pitcher, Chenango county, owing to the advent among its people of small-pox. Mr. Addison TAYLOR, who died last week was taken ill after returning from the Centennial, the character of his disease undecided upon until after his death and burial, when another similar case came up, pronounced to be that disease. Mr. TAYLOR, being a well known citizen, the funeral services were attended by the majority of the people in the neighborhood, thus being more or less exposed to the disease. This has created considerable alarm. There is some talk of stopping communication with the locality, and residents of Pitcher have conferred with our postmaster with a view to discontinue mails from that town temporarily.
Death the great destroyer of mankind, has again entered this pleasant valley. It has taken from our midst a beloved wife and mother, Mrs. Walter THOMPSON, who died of dropsy Nov. 22, aged 35 years. For many months she was a great sufferer, but the strong and resolute will at last yielded and she has now entered into that rest which remains for the people of God. She was an earnest worker and member of the M.E. Church of Cuyler, N.Y., and was a teacher of an interesting class in the Sabbath School. Many a heart is sad, and many a home seems lonely now that Sarah has gone. But let us feel that of a truth, our loss is her gain. H.R.L.
