Gen. Winfield SCOTT HANCOCK, died on the 9th inst., at his home on Governor's
Island, New York, after a short illness, with a carbuncle on his neck. Gen.
HANCOCK had gained distinction both as a military man and statesman, and the
universal verdict is that he earned every position to which he was promoted.
He had the reputation of a perfect gentleman, and as he always performed
whatever duty to which he was assigned, promptly, fearlessly and well, without
interference with the duties of others, he was one of the few great men, whosegood
qualities of head and heart were recognized and acknowledged in life, by
opponents as well as by those with whom he acted.
'Squire WILLIAMS united in wedlock, on the 2d inst., at Victoria, James E.
PATTON and Miss Fed HUSKEY, both of Jefferson county. After the ceremony a good
supper was partaken of at MARSDEN's hotel, and several hours were enjoyably
We attended a meeting of Shekinah Masonic Lodge, last Saturday evening.
There was a good attendance and Frank BRICKEY and William BUREN were 'raised'.
The following births were filed during the week: January 20, to Mrs.
Benjamin J. WATERS, a girl; January 9, to Mrs. Michael BRENNAN, a girl; January 13,
Mrs. Kirt NULL, girl; January 27, Mrs. Mark PERRY, girl; February 1, Mrs. M.F.
SPALDING, boy. Girls five to one.
Dr. FARRAR reports the death, at De Soto on the 9th inst., of a girl named
Emma BOSSMER; cause of death, child birth. The child was born dead. The other
party to the transaction is not known, and probably holds his head as high as
if he were an honorable man.
On the 2nd instant, 'Squire McFARLAND married George W. COUCH and Miss Anna
GRAHAM. After the ceremony a superb dinner was devoured, and general good time
was had. As it is yet too early to indulge in a mush and sassafras diet, the
'Squire is happy in the acquisition of the coffee money.
Mr. GARRISON, the gentleman who has recently bought the MATLOCK place, was
here last week, making preparations for removing his family from Arkansas to the
MATLOCK mansion. As this will likely necessitate of move on Judge ELKIN's
part, and the new shoemaker also wants a residence for his family, there will be
a demand for good dwellings - something that is scarce here at present.
Hillsboro is just now experiencing a little boom, and unless some of the old
tenements are put in decent repair, it would pay some of our monied men to build a
few nice cottages.
LICENSED TO WED - William BUCK and Clara LINVILLE, William P. SHEDRON and
Isabelle LALUMENDER, Lee T. BROOKS and Laura A. BURNETT, Martin Ed. SCHAEFFNER
and Catherine BECKER, Samuel T. WILSON and Susan E. JOHNSON, Joseph SHEDRON and
Mary WICKERHAM, George MANESS and Serene E. MANESS.
Nicholas EMS, whose will was probate last week, died on the 22nd of last
month at the residence of his son-in-law in Carondelet, aged 95 years. He had
been a resident of this county - near Maxville - for many years. His wife has
been dead a long time and he made his home with his children.
Last Friday, Sol LUTHER and Jack KEVANS of Plattin, came to Hillsboro and
procured a warrant for the arrest of Brad BYRD, charging him with committing an
out rageousassault on Mrs. KEVANS. Dep. Sheriff MUELLER went down Saturday
after BYRD, but was a little too late. BYRD having sold out and left the
On the9th inst. Judge SECKMANN officiated at a wedding and got a wetting by
being the victim at an immersion. He united in marriage Andrew STOCKER and
Mrs. Ernestina ROTH, after which he went to the Lemay Bridge, where Contractor
SEBASTIAN was putting in some timbers to protect the middle pier from the ice,
and while standing on the ice, making an examination of the pier, the ice
suddenly gave way, and down went one-third of our County Court into fourteen feet
of water. The Judge caught on the ice with his hands and kept from going under
until assisted out, He had to ride to Maxville before he had a chance to
warm, and then he slipped into some of Joe ZIPP's dry clothing. He staid in bed
one day on account of his ducking, but is out again as lively as a cricket.
