lifirMr. Beecher was before the Grand
Jury Saturday morning, and after answer
sng a number of questions ho certified to
the correctness of the indictment for libel
against Mr. Tilton. The document sets
forth that Theodore Tilton, wickedly and
maliciously, with intent to injure and
scandalize the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher
in his good name, fame and cbaracter,sub
jecting him to - contempt and disgrace, anil
to provoke him and his friends to commit
a breach of the peace, published on or a
bout September 18, or caused to be pub
lished, in the Daily Graphic, and circula
ted in the city of Brooklyn and elsewhere,
a false, scandalous and malicious libel
concerning him. The Grand.;Jury also
read ,to Mr. 'Beecher a second indictment
against Frank D. Moulton, which is word
ed similar to.that found against Mr. Til
t-on,charging him with libellingMr. Beech
er by causing the publication of false, ma
licious and slanderous reports in the Dai
ly Graphic. Moulton and Titton were to
go into Court on Monday morning to an
swer to the indictment.
sThere is one conspicuous eception
to the general run of full crops, this sea
son, and that is corn. In some section of
the west where, last year, they sold corn
for 20 cents a bushel or burned it for fuel,
stock-raisers are buying corn now at from
50 to 60 cents. The 'torn crop, it is said
will not realize more than one third of the
usual average. The drouth which pre

til; the recent rain storms may be regard
ed as appearing at a fortunate time. The
spring and early summer rains were un
usually copious in most portions of the
country, and therefore the wheat and
hay did well. It %was certainly better to
have good crops of these than to have
them suffer at the gain of a great corn
The large crops throughout the country
make it possible for the poor to title over
the discomforts and slender resources of
this winter. And if the winter prove not
disastrous, we may anticipate in t h e

infusion of new life into various business
interests that have scarcely yet recovered
from last:year's panic.

DECEASED.—We are called upon to an
nounce the death of another aged citizen,
that of Mr. Alex. Hamilton, which took
place at his residence about 8 o'clock on
Sunday evening last. His health had
been gradually failing him fur several
months. Mr. H. was a man of more than
ordinary energy and business tact and for
upwards of forty years had ranked among
the most prominent and useful. citizens of
our town. The M. E. church, of which
he bad long been an exemplary member,
and the community generally, in his death
have .sustained a serious loss. On Wed
nesday his remains were escorted to the
M. E. Church burying ground for inter
ment by a large procession of friends and
neighbors. He had attained to the ripe age
of 81 years, 7 mouths and 13 days.
On Friday evening last Mrs. Jane Frey,
consort of John Frey, late of this borough,
dad, departed this life at the age of 66
years and 20 days. The deceased had also
been a consistent member of the M. E.
Church for many years. She had been a
great sufferer having been confined to her
room for about three years with dropsy.
On Sunday morning her remains were in
terred in the M. E. Church burying
ground, the citizens of the town generally
joining the friends in the funeral proces
sion, which was one of the largest wit
nessed for a long time.
P. S. Since the alnAe was in typo we

the death of Mr. Hamilton which will be

Mr. Hamilton commenced business in
Waynesboro' when a young man—after
.ward was united in holy wedlock to his
recently departed wife, with whom be
lived nearly fifty-touiyeats: They were
blessed with a large family of children,
some of whom have Preceded them to the
spirit world. Sonietime, after they were
married ho was led by the provideuce of
God to realize "more fully the necessity
and importance of securing immediately
a personal interest in the atoning merits
of the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour,
which he did during a severe affliction to
the full satisfaCtiou of his mind, and after
ward united with the• Methodist Episco
pal Church of this place, cf which his
wife had been a worthy and exemplary
member before they were married; here
they lived an..l worshiped their God hap
pily together until last February, when
she preceded him to the rest above, at the
age of 73-yeatO months and 26 days.—
From the time of Mrs. Hamilton's death
he began evidently to fail and continued
growing more feeble until his son Alex
ander who had_been a severe sufferer for
many years with spinal affection, was call
ed from suffering to rest, about one month ,
before him, aged 33 years, 7 months and
7 days. - After that he continued to fail
more rapidly until he calmly and peace
fully fell asleep in Jesus in the presence
of all his surviving children and most of
his grand-children-
Mr. Hamilton as a business man -- Was
strictly honest, honorable and energetic.
Punctuality was one of the leading traits
et' his life; he was p_unctual tolds
_ family_
and private religious duties; the fire upon
the family altar never went out until he
became too feeble to speak or kneel in
prayer. As a neighbor he was kind and
obliging; the poor around him were made
to rejoice' by his deeds of kindness and
charity. As afriend he was true and earn
all with whom he dealt, and all who had
the privilege of sharing his friendship can
never forget the substantial expression of
his attachments.
His society was agreeable though ho
was naturally of a modest, retiring dispo
sitiou; his motto was business before pleas
ure, which he practiced through life.—
Firmness and energy marked his long life
path. His views were broad and positive,
a man of great moral strength who de•
lighted in the promotion of just, laudable,
and righteous undertakiugs. In his death
the church in which he was long an active
member has lost an upright and faithful
friend, .the family a kind• father, a wise
and safe counselor aud,the community a
liberal and enterprising citizen. Ho will
be missed. May the mantle of h 6 many
virtues rest upon his descendants to the
latest generation. B.
