The Italy or Cel. Keus Found In a Lake.
Tne papers of this morning publish
an account of the drowning in Osceola
lake, near Peekskill, X. Y., of Cel. Samuel
Ress, a lxjtired army officer. Frem the
description of the deceased it is likely that
he is the gentleman who within the past
two or three years has spent some time in
this city, bearding at the Stevens house.
The full dispatch in regard te the sad oc
currence, is as fellows :
Pecgiikeepsik, X. Y., July 11. A
Peekskill despatch te the Eagle says :
Colonel Samuel Ress, a retired
I'nited States army officer, 58 years of age,
came from Washington a few weeks age te
the Jeffersen Valley hotel, eight miles from
Peekskill, with his wife, te beard for the
summer. Seme three or four days since he
was taken with erysipelas in the face and
neck, and was cenlined te the house. Yes
terday he was somewhat better, and spoke
of biking a bath in the Osceola lake, but
was persuaded net te de se. This morn
ing about 4 o'clock, his wife missed him
from the bed, and, jeint: te leek for him,
saw his clothing lying en the shore of the
l:ike, which is about 100 feet from the
hotel. Mrs. Ress returned te the hotel
and procured the assistance of the land land
leid and ethers. They went down te the
lake and three or four yards from shore,
where, the water is seven or eight feet deep,
saw the colonel's head just beneath
the water. Mr. Fryc, the landlord, took
an ear, and placing it under the colonel's
arm, brought him te the shore and found
that he was dead. Justice W. R. Jenes
was sent for, who, iictiug as coroner,
called a jury at about 10 a. in. and held an
inquest. The jury gave a verdict of acci
dental drowning. The body was then
taken in charge by an undertaker, and
will be buried at Carinel, Piitnum county,
N. V., te-morrow.
Cel. Ress entered the army as a brevet
second lieutenant in 1848, but resigned
shortly afterward. In 1801 lie was ap
pointed a captain of the Fourteenth
Infantry, and in 18G2 became colonel of
the Twentieth Connecticut Volunteers,
and was mustered out .Ian. 1, 1871. He
was appointed second lieutenant of the
Seventh Infantry in 1872, and seen after
ward was retired as a brigadier general te
date from Jan. 1. 1871, but in 1875 his
rank en the retired list was reduced te a
colonelcy by act of Congress.
Werth (i. Ress, a well-known young
gentlfniau who has many friends in this
city, is a son of the colonel. He bearded
at the Stevens house with his father and is
at present a lieutenant in the United States
navy. Several weeks age he was in this
city sending a few days with his friends.
Shortly after that he left this country
en beard the revenue cutter " Chase, "
and it is supposed that he is new in Gib
raltar. Cel. Ress was a pleasant gentleman,
and he had many friends here who will be
sorry te learn of his sad death. His
friends here state that the colonel and his
family had been residing for some time
past in the city of Washington, as stated
in the despatch.

My Dkak Litti.i-: Men: I was very
much pleased te get such a line batch of
letters, and much surprised at the curious
coincidences of my imaginary and your
real school. 1 am glad you like me, boys,
for veu are the best judges of
the truth of the pictures I drew
of them. If I had known of your
school before 1 wrote the book, 1 should
have been tempted te ask Mr. Beck te let
ine come and study you a little, and
put you into the story. I wrote it in Reme
and had net a boy anywhere te refresh
myself with, sol recalled many of my own
early scrapes, and get some artists and
i;ntlcmeu te tell me theirs, and just
pepped the pranks into my book. I sup
pose that is why you like them, for I could
never have made up anything se funny as
the Kittymeusc or Temmy IJangs's capers.
I was born in Pennsylvania, anil if I ever
go anywhere near your school you will see
a tall, thin woman, with a twinkle in her
eyes, come tapping at. your deer, or, mere
likely, "itceking " in the window, for Je
never behaves quite properly, anil likes fun
as much at 40 as she did at 14. Many of the
queer things in the book happened in
my father's school in Bosten 110 years age,
and a record of that school is seen te be
published. Shall I send you a copy, se
that you can read hew the boys really did
ferule the master, and ether thiugs as cu
rious and useful :' I'm net sure that pil
low fights would succeed out of a story. I
am sure that your Mrs. Je wouldn't like
te have her pillow-cases spoilt any mere
than I should, and 1 have my doubts about
real boys being able te subside se quickly
alter it. I hope that your Plumlield will
prosper beautifully, and always be te yen
a helpful, happy memory. With best
wishes te you every one, and regards te
Mr. and Mrs. Deck, I am, my dear lads,
very sincerely your friend.

Hand Badly Lacerated.
On Saturday afternoon a little daughter
of Johnlleak, who resides en Evans's farm
at GracfTs landing, accidentally tripped
and fell down the cellar steps. At the
bottom of the stairway was a crock lying
at the time ; the little girl fell upon it break
ing it te pieces and cutting an ugly gash
in her hand.
On Saturday night a lG-year-eld son of
Abraham Huber, residing near Willow
street purchased a revolver and began
sheeting at his younger brother for the
purpose of frightening him. He was a
very peer markman, for instead of missing
the boy, as he desired, the ball struck him
in the side. It hit a rib and
glancing off passed around the
body, in which it yet remains.
Yesterday Elmer McCardle, 14 years of
age, Henry Bickle and two sons of David
M. Reet, all of whom reside at Willow
Street, went te fight a bees nest. Instead
of fighting the bees with paddles, as ether
boys de, they thought they would try a
new experiment. By some means they
procured a pound of gunpowder, which
they sprinkled ever the nest. One of the
boys then placed a box ever the nest, and
procuring a fuse put it through a hole in
the box. About the time they were going
te apply the match the powder, which
had caught lire in some manner, exploded.
Yeung McCardle was terribly burned about
the face and head, and his clothing was
almost burned from his body. The ether
boys were net injured.
The victims in all of the above cases
were attended by Dr. I. II . Mayer, of Wil

his left hand caught in the rollers, and
had three of them terribly lacerated, the
flesh being tern from the bones. Dr. S.
T. Davis was summoned anil dressed the
wounds. The bones are net crushed, and

Mr. L. A. Prczingcr, of the Lancaster
watch factory, while engaged in assisting
some of the workmen in running a plate
through the rolls en Saturday afternoon,
was se unfortunate as te get the index
linger of his left hand caught between the
cogs, and though he succeeded in extricat
ing the member before the bone was crush
ed, the end of the linger is quite badly
mashed, and he will probably be deprived
of the use of it for some weeks.
On Saturday evening about lOo'deck as
Rebert Stewart and Hairy Carpenter were
driving en East King stcet, their horse
took flight from coming in contact
with a rope used for the erection of the
Iluiceck pole in front of Hagclganz's
hotel, lunging suddenly forward towards
the pavement in front of Zicgler's tavern.
Here he broke a trace, and commenced
kicking, until he finally kicked himself
loose and ran te his stable. The young
gentlemen jumped from the vehicle and
escaiicd unhurt. The phaeton in which
they were riding had the dashboard kicked
in and the axle bent, a wheel dished and
the shafts injured.

A Mistake Corrected.
Ill noticing the robbery of the residence
of Thes. B. Cochran, esq., our reporter

shutters bowed. The thief, who was cvi
dently acquainted with the premises,
watched the opportunity, entered by a
gate at the side of the house and thence
through the dining room and up stairs,
where the theft was committed as hereto
fore stated. There is yet no clue te the
thief nor the stolen jewelry.
