The announcement of his death will cast a gloom over Western Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, throughout which he was so weil kuowu as tbe Fighting Chaplain. He waa attached to tbe Seventy-eight Seventy-eight Seventy-eight R'giment Pennsylvania volunteers, commanded hy Colonel William Sirwell of Kittannmg, hich belonged to Megley's brigade in tho Army of tiie Cumberland. Well does the writer remember the day that the brigade embarked from the wharf of this city on steamboat, and the crowd attracted to witness witness their departure. Much to their horror tke hurricane deck of one of the boats broke and a number of soldiers were injured. The Catholics 00 that occasion were proud to know that the faithful Priest was on hand to give spiritual consolation to the wounded, and cheer the alUicted. Through the entire war Father Christy was devoted to tho car.ee of the Union, always on hand to givs religious counsel to the wounded, and equally ready to take his gun to make common cause against the enemies of his country. When the war waa over the ''fighting chaplaiu" returned with the Seventy-seventh, Seventy-seventh, Seventy-seventh, Seventy-seventh, Seventy-eighth Seventy-eighth Seventy-eighth and Seventy-ninth Seventy-ninth Seventy-ninth Regiments, and resumed the charge of his old congregation near Kittanuing, Armstrong Armstrong county. When tiie annual re-union re-union re-union of the heroes of the war held throughout this country tbe Fighting Chaplain occupied a prominent place in the front ranks with bis comrades, (fen. Phil. Sheridan and oihers. and has on several occasions enlivened enlivened The assemblages with his happy anecdotes of camp life and the triais attendant attendant upon long siege-. siege-. siege-. After a short stav at Kiltanning, Father Christy took chaigeof the Church at Khons-burg, Khons-burg, Khons-burg, the countv seat of Cambria, where he was stationeu for many years, and buil t a fine church and pastoral residence and established a preparatory school for young children.

Afterwards he was Killed to take charge of a Church at Ciumbus, and tuns he hands over his flock to tue keeping of the Lord, who has relieved him of his good work. Father Cnristy's life is a lesson for the rising generation. He wa one of five brothers, and two sisters, viz. Dr. Christy of Oil City, John A.Christy, M.J. Christy, Andrew Christy, Mrs. Andrew Butler and Mrs. Wm. J. ikmuer, whone ancestors are among the pioneers of Cambria county. Father Christy was about fifty years of age, and during the half century he lived he contributed as much of the milk of human human kiudnens to those he came in contact with as the most noted philanthropists. 1 HE COL UTS Yesterday Proceeding in the State, County and t'nMed States Courts.
