If he calls things by their proper names, lie is unlit for
the position of an editor. li lie d >es, he is a ratth head,
lacking stability. If he condemns the wrong, he is a
good fellow, but lacks discretion. If he lets wrong and

In Towanda Borough, after a protracted and painful ill
ness, KLISHA SHELDON GOODRICH, la the sixty
first year of his age.
The subject of the above notice was born in Walton,
Delaware County, N. Y., Aug. 15, 1810.
Iu 1810 his family moved into Bradford County, Pa.,
and settled in Columbia township, where he grew up to
man's estate. At an early age he was called into public
Hie,and in various capacities served the public the greater
part of bis life. He was appointed Post Master at Co
lumbia X Roads by President Jackson. In 1831 he was
appointed Register and Recorder of Bradford County by-
Governor Wolf, and moved his residence to the County
scat, holding said office five years,during which time he
was also appointed Justice of the peace for Towauda
Iu 1544 he was elected Transcribing clerk of the State
Senate,—which office he h. M one session, and was cho
sen Chief clerk in 1645 and rejected in 1845.
In 1852 lie* was appointed Deputy Secretary of the
Commonwealth under Gevcrnor Bigler, which office be
held until 1855.
In most of his private enterprises he was still a promi
nent man before the public.
In 1833 he purchased the "NORTHERN BANNER,' "publish
ed in Towauda,and continued connected with it about two
years, when lie disposed of his i nterest in the paper and
engaged in the mer antile business.
Iu 1840 he started a new paper called the " POUTER ,"
and afterward the " REPOUTZK," with which he was con
ne ied several years.
In 1859 be purchased the " LUZERNE UNION," ard con
tinued the paper until failing health compelled him to
r-sign it to oth:r hinds, ana retire v from active duties.
lie returned to Towauda, March iB6O, there to spend the
remaii s of a life, chiefly devoted o the j üblic service.
hi all his various positions before the public Mr. GOOD
RICH proved himself worthy of the confidence, and se
cured Ihe esteem of his fellow citizens. We believe few
men have tilled offices of public trust s < long, and retis-ed
at last, with a deeper or more general respect and esteem
of hi eilow ci i .ens. As a write, he wai e'ear, logical
nnd weighty. We do not recollect an instance of his
descend ng lo sarcasm, li uy he did sometimes em
piny and with withering effect ; but argument was his
" forte,'' and often have we been reminded of the pon
der >us sentences ol Dr. Johnson,in perusing his weighty
reasoning. But whatever vein he chose to indulge, his
lung sage was al ays cbas e, and his thoughts pure.
In whatever relation be was found, he was the same
upright, generous, high minded gentleman. Love of
money was no part of his character, nor would he be ex
acting upon others in any respect, to subserve his own
purposes. He lound pleasure rather iu contributing to
the happiness of others.
The subject of personal rcl'gion engaged his attention,
at times, many years before his decease. The writer re.
members with great pleasure the interest lie took in an
adult Bible L', and the knowledge of the subject
under examination, be was accustomed to manifest, sev
eral yeiirs before he indulge d hope o! his own acceptauc e
in the sight of God. A lew years before his death, he
saw his way char to makeu public profession of religion.
It was under the ministry of the lute Rev. l)r. JOHN Dor.
RANGE, of Wilkes Banc.
As might be expected, h's religion was not one of form
m ucly, nor of impulse. It was the religion of the under*
standing as well as of the heart. Few listened to the
word with a nicer discrimination than he, or relislie . the
simple doctrines of the cross with greater zest. His dis
ease was of such a character in no small measure obscur
ed the manifestation of the spiritual life ; but it was ob
served that during his long, and exceedingly trying sut'
ferings, his faith did not fail. His habitual desire was to
depart and be with Christ—and the expression of this
■lesu e became more frequent and more earnest as he ap
proached his end.
He had been an indulgent father, and a tender bus.
band. It seemed meet that one who had always shown
suiii ready consideration for others, should have occasion
at last lor a return of kind attentions. His pr.ilractcd
sufferings afforded occasion for such attentions and cheer
fully were they given by his family, who were with him
but especially and most devotedly by her, who now in
her widowhood, mourns his hiss.
Mr. GOODRICH was twi -e married, and was most happy
in his matrimonial connections ; and we have reason to
believe that the Christian cximple of his companions
a.i* among the most effective of the human means used
in bringing liim to the foot of the cross. We are here
reminded of the apostle's interrogation, "llow knowest
thou. O, wife, whether thou shaft save thy husband ?"
A large concourse at the tuneral testified the respect
that was felt for the dead arid sympathy for the surviv
ors ! To the Great Comforter we commend them for
effectual consolation.
In Wy ilusing, May 3. 1T,2, Mrs. CHARITY DONLEY,
aged ; 3 years, 7 months and 17 days.
The subject of this n'tiec in >ved from Oswego county,
N". V.. some twenty-six years since, then a widow with
six chihl en, five of which she brought with her and set
tled in Wyalusing, this county, where she has since re
sided, living most of the time with a son who has sup
ported her declining years. Shu was for many years a
profe.-sed Christian, treading her even path of life with
industry, tempc-rencc, frugality anil Chri-tian faith and
patience. She lived beyond the allotted time
j 'J'ing uniform good health, with little exception, up to
a short time previous to her death, when the worn out
wheels of life stood gently still, und her freed spirit as
een ed to its maker. S. F. B.
