ig a man of varied accomplishments mid c
i elegant taste. As a meuibe-r ol oc eiy m
Boston and Cambridge, he has always u-
joved an unusual popularity. His musical
talents are of a high order, and tits done
much to elevate the standard of musical
taste in Boston, tils bouse has been rlis
tingu.shed as ihe beat of generous hopi-lal-ty,
when, surrounded by a angularly
lovely f.iim! v. he hasnpeared iu M J )V ihe
highest delijiht in the courteous entcrMi::

a mild, kind and unassuming disjiosiiion,

there was a su9i.iut balance in his bunds

Wilkes Barre.Piitston, This is a very
important subject for the counties and town
along these lines ; it is therefore desirable
ibat they take the subject into considera
tion, and prepare themselves to aid the en
terprise by a liberal subscription to the
stock of t he company , as they w ill be called
upon shortly tor that purpose. All the
towns on these routed where stations may
be placed are deeply inteiested.
Telegraphic connections are daily lie
coming more numerous, and as they are
all paying a very liberal per-cenlage to the
stockholders, we da not think that capital
ists and business men whose vicinities iho
above connection is to embrace, can di
themselves and the public greater benefit
than by contributing liberal' v towards iia
construction. Pa. TtU
