Mr. John SILVEY has discovered a remarkably rich lode of lead ore in
SMITH's Diggings, on Fourche a Renault. At a depth of twenty feet, Mr.
S. has come upon an opening from which he has taken chunks of ore
weighing three hundred pounds. He has now reached solid ore having a
thickness of five feet, and has not yet ascertained its width, although
his drift is eight feet wide. One hand can easily take out one thousand
pounds per day. The prospect is on the land of Hon. F.B. KENNETT. --
MARRIED - DONNELL - McCORMACK. At the residence of the bride's father
in Hematite, February 12th, 1874, y Rev. J.L. McFARLAND, Mr. Thomas N.
DONNELL to Miss Elba McCORMACK, daughter of Reed McCORMACK, Esq.
Many friends of the happy couple were present to witness the
important ceremony. Mr. McCORMACK gave them a fine wedding supper; and
on the following day Mr. W.R. DONNELL, of Hillsboro, gave a sumptuous
dinner, to which many of he friends of the bride and groom were invited,
to welcome them on their start in life. It gives us pleasure to record
the marriage of two worthy young people like these, and we would, with
equal pleasure record the marriage of other young folks who were present
to witness the ceremony.
Further Particulars -- The Jefferson Democrat was remembered with
plenty of wedding cake. This is an important part that is too often
OBITUARY - DIED - Feb. 12th, at the residence of Thomas CHARLES, Esq.,
of an affection of the heart, Charles EVANS, aged 13 years.
It is sad to chronicle the death of so promising a boy who had
ingratiated himself with all, and particularly with Mr. and Mrs.
CHARLES, and it is rare that the funeral of one so young is attended by
such manifest sorrow, there being scarcely a pair of dry eyes at the
services. Charlie had a presentiment of his fast approaching
dissolution, for when the Dr. said telegraph to his father he is very
ill, Charlie told them to tell him "I'm going to die." And the
beautiful snow that fell in such a frolic of wild glee next day, mantled
another little new-made grave.
A friend writing to us from Pevely, informs us that the school at that
place has been closed on account of Measles; also, that Col. FARRAR has
sold the CLIFFTON farm near Pevely, to a gentleman who will make a dairy
farm of it.
We are informed that Wm. AKE of Victoria, was married last Tuesday
evening to a daughter of Davis WILLIAMS of Hematite, so it seems that
AKE had other objects in view in getting a divorce, besides getting rid
of his first wife.

grief stricken husband. Mrs. GALVIN was a dutiful child and a loving
and obedient wife, possessing all those rare traits of character which
make one worthy of the love and esteem of their friends, but in the
language of the poet.
