Donaldson, while playing near Oneida street bridge, fell into the river, and before he could be got out, life was extinct. Tbe Good TVmplars have a strawberry festival at Albany Hall next Thursday evening, tbe procewde of which go to furnish their new ball in Bowman's building, near the Post Office. > The ladies bare nearly accomplished tbe purchase of Mount Vernon. They have •paid one hnndred and seventy thousand dollars of the purchase money, and will probably raise the rest in a month or two. Tbe peach growing districts of New Jersey, Deleware and Maryland will furnish a bountiful supply of fruit during the coming season. The strawberry crop has been abundant. Yesterday about noon as some ohil •dren were coming from school, a team came Tunning down Wisconsin street, the wagon titling a little son of Mr. Qalaway, knocking •him against a little girl. The girl was not annoh hurt, but the boy's head was badlj cut and otherwise bruised. It is thought he will recover.

A week baa only changed my impression to » conviction. I beg to say that I very res- peolfnlly decline tbe pos tlon whioh was ten dered me through my personal friend, and for whioh one of your profession is more fit than any one of mine. With sincere respect for the craft, and for >ourself personally, I remain yonre truly. E W. DENNIS. MIL»ACKK«, Juu» 16, 1859.

Brown, late of Portage, one of the founders and £rsl Vice President of the Aisoofatton Ruotvtd, That in his death our fraternity has lost one of its moat worthy.nseful and hon. orable members, society an ornament, and the State one of Its best and most exemplary citi- S6fi8t " : • Rewind, That /ally realising the great be- reavementiof tbe -family and relations of Gen Brown.we tender to them onp warm and heart^ felt sympathies. * Jtetolved, That these resolutions be entered upon the records of this Association, and that • copy of them, signed by its offlcerg.lw trataa- milled to the family of tbe deceased, Mr, J. M. Doty, of the Portage Oily Badger State, was then introduced by the President, and delivered the following •EULOGY. : Prttuknt and Gentlemen of the Attocia- ence. ami mainlain ils aolbority as the "Fourth Estale," more potenl lor Ihe instruction of the world, for the correction of abuses in society and the preservation of law and order than that of Ihe legMative, judicial and -lecutive branches of government, fAij was his hope SD< i care, and be waa ready and willing to labor to this end, however and whenever he might be called. In tbe language of one of his nearest and dearest friends, who prononnced his Fo- neral Eulogy, " he loved bis allotted work He entered on it heartily. He bad for It a noble eutboaiasin. It is a high work." Al this day and iu this country, it in or* of the most solemn poats of duty n mm can fill.— How many prost tute lhat place to bad par- poses, it is not ours to M y. He wields a tremendous power for good'or ill, who holdn that place, even In its humbler walks. H» -stands a public teacher; he «p*aks lo the lar- gesl audience. His words are nol spoken and forever still ; they are in Ihe writfn letters that remain; in the printed letters tbat remain still long-r. They run like the lightning in flje-cara and stoam-driveD ships; they echo in tbe streets of far-away cities; they sound on the lonely mountain side, in the broad desert where the wanderer In fancy turns to home- they ring round all the earth. Wo »o the bid man who uses that place for hia bad ends r— Wo to the liar who uses the mighty engine in hi* bands to spread hia lies! ffo to tbe coward who occupies that posi I Wo to the vile who poisons what should be a river of pure truth •nd good for the earth's refreshing, the river of the world'* printed thoughts, with the poison of hit vilenesa. He felt the responsibility of his place, and whatever means the place gave htm, he sought to use for what he believed the nght and the true. Fearless to a fanlt, out- •poken, somewhat hasty, perhaps he committed errors—what man does not err? Bnt those whom he opposed can bear witness to the honesty of hia opposition; tbos« who, in the language of his profession, called him foe, always found him a manly and a nobU foe. All that shall be forgotten. And, among the men who fill snch posts M he filled, throughout all thli broad State in time to come, he will be remembered as one ofitbe lathers of his noble profes •Ion here, wbdse memory casts honor, and honor only, oo the class of'worker* of whioh be waa one. , When the Call appeared in the Horjoon Ar- «*,:fot ;.» Conviatlon of the Editor, and Pab- lishers in Wisconsin, »t Portage City, on the 10th day of Jttly, 1857, for th5 puma of. or. ^L°f * hi « • 4M ?« ation . «en.
