SUICIDE IN CANDOR.— On Sunday last, in
Candor Village, Miss Hannah Lewis, a girl 23 or
24 years of age, daughter of Lucas Lewis, commit
ted suicide by shooting herself through the heart
with a musket—her folks being absent at Church
with the exception of a brother who was asleep in
a bedroom in the chamber. When her folks came
home she was lying dead upon the floor, with the
gun by her side, the muzzle of which she had evi
dently held against her breast while she had
sprung the lock with her foot. Aberration ofmind
growing out of religions excitement is supposed to
have been the cause of the rash act. The family
are highly respectable, and the girl herself bore an
excellent character.— Owego Gazette.

MR. EDITOR—DEAR SIR :—The readers of
the REPOBTES, I am sure are always glad to find
good news in the column local. I have a little to
communicate in a short narrative concerning "Un
cle Alincr's Sunday School " in Orwell township.
Other cases of like character might be mentioned.
"Uncle Miner" is one of our model Sunday-
School Superintendents. Seven years ago he be
gan the good work in what will he hereafter known
as 3linerville. He is a great favorite among the
children. Even the parents look up to him as
their teacher, a man "mighty in the Scriptures."
His scholars come by families. The houses are
closed when the hour for Sunday School arrives,
while children and parents, babes, grandmothers
and all go to Sunday School. Having no other
place they have been accustomed to meet in a
sehoolhouse. This summer it was not sufficiently
large to accommodate all who wished to attend.
They were compelled to remove to a little island
grove near by, which is literally covered with
seats, and all the seats are occupied every pleasant
sabbath. Last Sabbath I had the pleasure of vis
iting this schooL My missionary pony, "Promp"
brought me promptly to the place a half hour be
fore the time of meeting. I found " Uncle Miner"
in the school-house which was filled with children,
" asking and answering questions " from the Bible.
They at once proceeded to the grove where the
first half hour was occupied in asking not less than
one hundred questions on the Old Testament, all
of which were answered by the scholars in concert.
No books were used in this examination. " Uncle
Miner" stated that his scholars could go through
the whole Bible in the same way. Next followed
the Missionary's address in which he showed them
first how it was that their Sunday School had pro
cured for them a church invisible, and secondly,
what they shonld now do to procure also a church
visible. After the address, "Uncle Miner" ap
pointed a meeting for the puipose of taking meas
ures to exchange the grove for a house of worship.
Before leaving the next morning, I was told that
seven hundred dollars had been subscribed and a
fine lot given for the new church visible which is
gracefully forming from materials in " Uncle Mi
ner's Suuday School." Very truly yours,
ll®- S. W. AI.VORD lias been appointed
