THE ADVANCE, MAY 10, 1861. HOME DEPARTMENT. l)* c At the election for Chief-Engineer of the Fire Department, held at the Town House on Monday evening, Hon. James C. Hpencor received sixty nine votes, and Kil«y Johnton fitly three. The meeting hrok<t up with three \hearty cheers for hotli rnmluUtat. •aalaces) ci Our advertising columns to-day contain a notice of dissolution In the firm of L Frank A Bro. The business will be car- ried on in future by M. A N. Frank.— Hutves* attend them. The old-established nnd popular book and stationery establishment at present inrried on by Mr. Joseph Thompson, has UMMI remove* 1 from the old stand Xo the atore formerly occupied by M. F. James. Ira Wheelock, grocery and provision r, on Water street, has removed his of goods to tlu* store in Allen's !>rick block lately occupied as a Bteam- boat office. Teleffrapfclet The friend* of Mr. I).

Men experienced in tcle- gmphing, phice Mr. Bacon among the lust operator* in America. HIM plncc has Ix-en supplied by Mr. J. S Henderson of Quebec, a gentleman who wciim to be thoroughly conversant with hin Mini net*, and who we doubt not will tfivr universal satisfaction. ' Sad ArrMtont la Ltefcoa. We learn that Mr. John Hasely an old resident ami higlily esteemed citizen of IM»l>on, received a severe blow on his •forrhdAri by striking against the beam of the Hhed connected with the Weslcyan (hapol, as he was entering on horseback on Sunday momirig. He died shortlf aflor. * • Letter from y. , ALBANY, May 9, 18(11. Rl>ITUR Ol TUB AjDVANCB : \» many false reports have been circu- lated rolativc to the condition of affairs at the Ktmdezvous, at Albany, I presume a t'vw facts concerning the volunteers will not bo without Interest to your readers. Our sleeping apartments consist of bertha Himilar to those upon our river strainers, and are furnished with good <|HIUH, SO that we are an comfortable as any one could desire. Our bill of faro is plain, and substan- tial, and far better I dare say, than many whd are hero, are accustomed to. We havci good fresh meat three times a day, coimiHting of three-eights of a pound of \HH( or mutton, well cooked, for each moil, with eight ounces of rice, sweet bread, and occasionally baked beans, rice and vegetable w>Up. For breakfast and dinner we have one quart, and for supper three pints of coffee each. During the first two or three days, when the volunteers were arriving by hundreds, we could not expect to find every thing as comfortable as at our own homes, but for my part I consider that we have been treated like gentlemen. Yours truly, JOHN OODDBN. Wi rt«wn A- Some and Potsdam «c Watertown R, R. Since the consolidation of these roads the < onneetionH have been much more perfect, ami the expense of conducting them have also l»een materially diminish- ed. This road, under the direction of AddiHon Day, Esq., ns Superintendent, ha«» ttmmio quite popular. Cars leaving I'otudam Junction go direct through to Home, and vice versa. The road is in very good condition, and the officers are gentlemanly and obliging. PaMfteiigers leaving Ogdensburgh in the 4 oo A. M. train will arrive in New-York at 10 P. M. the same evening. Th« Bojm Patriotic. The Boys of School House No. 2., intend soon to raise the stars and stripes over the < upola, in honor of tb**e who have departed for the war. We understand that Mr. Robert Atche- *>n IUIH received his commission as Post Master at Ogdensburgh, and that he will enter upon the duties of his office imme- diately. Th e location, for the present, will not Iw changed. THK sons of eight of the ministers of the Black River Conference hare enlisted. Ttee We have been shown letters from Capt Nevin, in which he expresses his utmost satisfaction with all that has transpired since his departure. He speaks especially of the kind endeavors of our Attorney- Gencrol, Chas. G. Myers, who has done everything in his power to add to the comfort of the volunteers. The company is drilled regularly five hours each day, and permission is given for five members to visit the city from the hours of 10} A. M. to 8 P. M. Among the means of amusement re- rorted to at the Barracks is that of Base Ball. There are now nearly 1,400 quar- tered there, and every fine day after drill the balls and clulw are brought out, and the commodious grounds became the scene of an unusual exhibition in military life. Our citixens will l>e pleased to hear that in these games the Ogdenttlmrgh boys have thus far borne away the palm. A Worthy Act. Among the volunteers who departed for Albany yesterday were Messrs. T. II. Brosnan and L. L. Bridges two young gentlemen, well known and highly es- teemed in this vicinity, having been for some time past connected with our pri- vate schools. We understand that the Board of Education have unanimously passed a resolution to continue their sala- ries during the quarter. A Good Idea* We notice that in many places, Phys ician* are offering their services to the fa- milies of the volunteers, in cases of sick- ness, gratis. We have no doubt but that their example will be followed by many in Ogdensburgh. Let us see. A LKTTBR has been received by Gen. Judd from Miss Elizabeth Redington, of Waddington, in which she offers her ser- vices as nurse or in any other capacity, in Which she may be of service to her coun- try. Norther* Transportation Company. In our advertising columns will \HS found the Northern Transportation Com- pany's advertisement. This Company have recently added two new propellers to their line of steamers, and now have fourteen in all, which form a daily line between Ogdensburgh and all points West. Merchandise of all kinds in taken west at as low rates ns by any other line, and passengers wfll find it a pleasant and desirable route. Their cabins arc fitted up in good style for the accommodation of families, and passage can be taken with or without board at cheap rates.— C. L. Thompson and J. M. Chamberlain are the general agents here. Appointments of the B. R. Confer* The following are the appointments of the Black River Conference for the Og densburgh District':— J. H. LAMB, P.

Such generosity on the part of Mr. Geer is commendable, and will be highly appreciated. HBLBNA, May 8. EDITOE OF THM ADVAUCE:—Our Vil- lage has already sent out nine volunteers. A few days since we raised a liberty pole, ran up the stars and stripes, and gave three cheers for the Union and three for the ladies, who were present and sung \ The Star-Spangled Banner.\ j The Lisbon Association Till meet at Wells School House, Saturday evening May 11. River Intofltgence. The steamer Ottawa, the first boat of the season from Montreal, came up on Tuesday last. She was not heavily laden but will secure a heavy load down.— Mes- tenger. The iron-steamer Magnet is now run ning regularly between Montreal and Kingston. She will continue on this line until the opening of summer travel, when she will take her place on the Saguenay route. < Freights this ncaspn are a little above the usual mark, and business is active.— Passenger business, howevdr, has not fair iy started, And it is anticipated that plea sure travel will be very light during the coming summer. Timber rafts are beginning to move down the river. The first crib down the Oswegatchie passed over the u slide' this morning in fine style. Hotel Chang*. The American Hotel in \Watertown heretofore under'the Proprietorship of A M. Harris, Esq., changed hands on the first inst, it now being under the direc- tion of Mowra. Reuben Nott and Sons, late of Ogdcntthurgli. Mr. Nott is a man of large acquaintance, and has had experi- ence in Hotel keeping. The Sons are young Men of energy, and gentlemanly deportment, and under their management the \ American \will lose none of the popu- larity gained by its former bout—as being one of the first Hotels in Watertown. We predict for the American, a liberal share of the St. Lawrence County patronage See Curd in another column. Ogdentburgh Ball Road. The new time table of thi» road takes effect on Monday next. The first train will leave Ogdensburgh at 4 A. M., and arrive at House's Point at 8 30 A. M., connecting with trains there which arrive at Boston and New-York the same evening. The mail train also connects with Lake Champlain Steamers, and with trains for Montreal. This is, as we have previoiwly remarked, one of the best managed roads in the Country, and travellers will find it a pleasant and agre- able route. Mr. Hoyle is an efficient manager, and the road could not well be in letter hands. The Conductors are all gentle- manly and obliging, and R P. Toby is the well known ticket agent at the office here, at the depot. Tbe Sto; The storm which commenced Monday afternoon, May 6, has been almost un- precedented. The yacht Union, formerly the Eagle, was sunk at her moorings at the Depot slip; and a little steamer of the same name, used as a ferry between Morris- town and Brockvillc, tilled with water while ut the wharf, and was with diffi- culty kept from sinking. It was reported, but without good au- thority, that the schooner 8. P. Johnson had sunk with all on board, and again that three men had been drowned in the vicinity of the Deppt, but we trust they arc all without foundation. The boat house, owned by Henry Van Rcnssejaer, was carried away during the night and floated down the river. An old, dilapidated, two-story building near the Railroad bridge, was blown completely down, but fortunately no one was hurt. The stoamer Jenny Lind received a se- vere pounding on the rocks* but has not altered her position materially. The Vermont Central Railroad, at wind-mill point, near Lake Champlain, has been carried away for about one and a half miles, probably more damage has been done to other*parts of the road. We also foar that much damage has been done to shipping on the lakes. The storm at Oswego^as raging furiously, last evening, and all along the lake. We trust, however, that our fears may prove unfounded. • A special dispatch to the ADVANCE from Kingston says:—Wind blew fear- fully from the west last night. During the gale several vessels broke loose, but regained their anchorage without any damage being done. The steamer May flower broke away from the dock and drifted ashore on the point opposite the city. Her paddle-box was considerably damaged by coming in contact with the Martello tower. She was taken off by tugs this morning without serious dam- age. We hear of no further disasters. HALONK* The 4«mon8tration of yesterday (May 6th,) will long be remembered by the cit- fcent of our quiet little Visage. The tinttheir company of volunteers took their leave for Albany. They were in unusually fine spirits up to the time of their leave-tak- ing, but as each of those noble patriots bade u adieu\ to some dear friend or relative, and received the parting \ God bless you\ from those they were leaving behind, and whose interests they were going to protect, the fountains of feeling would burst their barrier,flvhd tears were seen to moisten the manly cheek, and be- dim many an eye whose unflinching firm- ness would never (fuail l>eforo a rebel en- emy. We have seen the volunteers from 8t Lawrence Co. and if an earnestness of pur- pose can be depicted upon the counten- ance* or if we can judge from outward personal appearance—we bespeak for the volunteers of Northern New-York that they will do strong and effective duty in the glorious service in which they have enlisted; fearlessly and manfully will they struggle to preserve the Republic they have sworn to defend, and if they fall, impartial history will do them jus- tice. At eleven o'clock yesterday the ladies of Franklin Academy presented the com- pany with a beautiful banner. The pre- sentation speech was made by Miss Lind- say, in behalf of the scholars, and res- ponded to by Ltyut. F. F. Wead. Remarks were made by Messrs. A. B. Parmelee, A. Lindsay and others. Doctor S. P. Bates gave the volunteers some very good med- ical advice, but the most appropriate and practical advice given them was. that of Major Charles Durkec. In concluding a few good-natured remarks, he said :— Fellow Soldiers :—One bit of advice. Stand /rm/ take good atip! Jlre quick, and never run. At the depot the company was joined by another from St. Lawrence Co. The ladies of Malone raised a purse sufficient to purchase a sword for Capt. Seavcr, and the young men presented Capt. Seaver and Lieut. Wead a purse of $25 each for the purchase of revolvers.— Franklin County has thus made her first sacrifice in the cause of her country, and we trust the work so nobly begun will be pursued with vigor till the last smolder- ing ember of rebellion shall be extin- guished, and the serpent which now seeks to sting the heart of the Republic shall be crushed beneath the heel of her faith- ful defenders. WEST STOCKHOLH. MAT, 0th 1861 EDITOR or THB ADVANCE : DEAR SIR,—The first company of vol- unteers from Stockholm, Capt. Gibson commanding left here to day. They were presented by the Ladies Of Stockholm with a beautiful flag, with the motto \ the Union.\ It was presented in behalf of the Ladies by Mr. J. S. Thompson, in an eloquent and patriotic speech, an<^ was feelingly and appropriately responded to by Capt. Gibson and Lieut. Tucker. L. H. Wires, was then called for by the volun- teers, and responded in an able and pat- riotic address. After which the volunteers were escorted to the depot at Knapps, by a large concourse of citizens, and left on the train amidst the hearty and prolonged cheers of the crowd. This Company is composed of young and energetic men, most of them first rate marksmen, and are hoping to be armed with the Minnie rifle. They will give a good account of themselves wherever placed, and old 8t. Lawrence will never have occasion to blush for the men who left to-day. When the head of the column came in sight at the depot, a long line of citizens, old military officers and ladies, was form- ed under command of Capt. Ira Hale, marshal. The roll was then called by Capt. Gibson, and every volunteer an- swered to his name, after which patriotic speeches were made by Messrs. B. Ames, T. Currier, arid Rev. flfr. Chase, and a patriotic song was sung by G. A. Han- kett'sGlee Club. Wno CAN BEAT?—A hen's egg, measur- ing 8 inches longitudinal circumference was left upon our table yesterday by Mr. Jacob Monday, with the enquiry •* Who can beat it?\ Rev. S. Call, of Ogdensburgh, Is station- ed in Arsenal street, M. E. Churchy Water- town. CMATMTWAT.

Clark, Jr., A Co., Smith A Pad- dock, and Beman & McCoy are now re- ceiving their stocks of spring and sum- mer goods from Boston and New York, and our other merchants are preparing to receive their stocks of new goods. POTSDAM. POTSDAM, May 8. Three worthies, in order to convince the world and people generally that they were true Mue, paraded the streets last Thursday, beating an old sheet iron oven for music, and one flourishing an old sword, but were astonished when they found officer Austin had them before Ju»- .tice Parker, and they were fined $10 each. Two however took Frencfi leave, and the other was sent up to board with Sheriff Gurley for ten days. Yours, &c, SAM. Union Afootlaff at Flackrflle. EDITOR OF THB ADVANCE :—The Union meeting that was announced in the AD- VANCE came off on Wednesday evening and was a complete success. The com- pany assembled at an early hour at Wil- son & Gray's, and after forming into line marched to the JA. E. Church, where they listened to an eloquent address from It. W. Judson, Esq. Joseph Chambers, E*q., was called to preside over the meeting, and C. W. Ainsworth was appointed Sec- retary. Upon the circulation of the volunteer roil quite a number of young men sul>- soribed their names. They will be under command of Capt. Bailey aided by Lieu- tenants FUlton and Brumagnum. $270 was raised upon the spot for the support of the families of volunteers. The great- est enthusiasm prevailed. C. W. AIN8WORTH, Secretary. 9m* Accident. tn Clinton, on the 1st of May, William Covey, son of Mr. James Covey, shot hi« right arm nearly off. The father and son had started out to work in the woods the boy carrying with him a gun. They stopped at a neighbor's houne on the way to transact BOUIC business, and while standing there the boy placed the breach of the gun on some poles or rails that were lying on the ground; in starting off the hammer of the gun caught in the rails, and discharged the piece, the charge taking effect in his right arm near the body, breaking the arm and tearing the flesh in a most shocking manner. Dr. George Howe, assisted by Dr. Mott, of Chateaugay, waft called, and amputated the arm at the shoulder joint. There is but a slight hope of his recovery, owing to the flesh being no badly burnt with the powder. In this place, at the Seymour House, on the Tth inst., by the Rev, h. Merrill Miller.

The subject of the above notice was born In Cornwall, Utchfield County, Conn., in December, 1791. In 1805 his father, the R«v. Ithial Peck, re- moved to Orvell, Vt., where the snbject of this sketch remained until 1888, and though young dis- played In an eminent degree those talents for busi- ness, whether in private life or as a public officer, which ever characterised him through llfotr*nd which, with his unfaltering integrity, gained him the entire confidence of those who knew him. In 1883 he left Vermont and settled In Lawrence when he remained until his death, ever maintain- ing the position of a faithful and devoted hatband, a kind and tender parent, an active and consistent Christian, leaving a wife and three children to mourn his loss, bnt they do not mourn A those without hope. In his death the Baptist Church and the community in which he lived have lost a member whose place will not be easily supplied. At different times he hasbeld nearly every office n tht town where he lived; he was twice elected member of Assembly from this County, and in all places his official duties have been discharged with that fidelity which ever exhibits the noblest work of God, \ an honest man.\ [COM. 1841.
