We beg to draw the attention of the readers of the CHATHAM REPUBLIC AH TO OUR PRESENT // '> __ GLen. John H. Ketcham, whose portrait given above will be instantly recognized by thousands of residents of Columbia, Dutchess and Putnam counties, resides at Dover Plains, in the town of Dover, Dutehess county, the locality in which he way-worn on December 21, 1832. He re- ceivecl an academic education, and as he grew- to manhood became interested in agricultural, pursuits m preference to a professional or mercantile career. Hi$ personal popularity among his fel­ low townsmen manifested itself in early life, and when Mr. Ketcham was only 22 Columbia County. CHATHAM CENTRE. — E. A. Jaques went to New York, years-old he was chosen to represent the town in the Dutchess board of supervisors during two successive terms. The sterlim E normous S tock of NEW DRESS GOODS X ji . Silks, YVool and Silk, all Wool Olotiis and oilier JO) omestic : Fatndcs onr Complete Stock ol and YYinter qualities he possessed induced the citizens to invite him to step up higher, and in 1856— when 24 years of age — they sent him to the State Assembly, re-electing him the following year. The turbulent period covering the years 1860-S3d*r861 found Mr. Ketcham a mem- - v- Wrapps, J ackets, Shawls, Cloaks and Wrapp Goods, Plush, Astriehans and other Novelties IN THAT BRANCH. O ur M illinery D epartment Is at present well filled, with ail the shapes in * Fall Hats and Bonnets. Novelties m her of the State Senate. In October, 1862, he'entem-d the Union Army as Colonel of the tSdui Hew York Volunteers. At a later period he was promoted to be a Brigadier: General, and remained in active -J-fierviGegntil he .resigned in March, 1865, to tefea .t&ggfa eaf-m Congress to ' which the He, was after- brevet and?! CoiSV gSE&g was one of the delegates frouP,hisig|ate to the National Republican conventuffi in 1876. On July 3, 1874', he becamjgpommissioner of the District of Columbia and held that post until June 30, 1874, when he resigned in order to repre ­ sent his old constituency in the 45th Con ­ gress. He has served them continuously in the sa'me capacity during 10 years. General Ketcham has always considered it his duty to rise above the plane of parti- zanshm m representing his district. He has been in every sense the representative of all- the people witbm the limits of his constituency. This fact, combined with the general sterling traits of character he posseses and his earnest application to gener ­ al congressional duties have so endeared him to the citizens of this congressional district chat the democracy have of late years considered their candidates as doomed to sure defeat. In tendering Gen Ketcham a re-nomina ­ tion last Tuesday, the Republicans of the district have honored themselves by honor ­ ing their distinguished fellow citizen, an'd there are no reasons for supposing that be will not receive the united and hearty sup ­ port of the Republican party throughout the entire district and be re-elected by a handsome majority.

Ormsby. — Mrs. H. 0. Gile, of West Stockbndge, Mass., and Miss C. I. a Fowler, of Albany, returned their to respective homes, last •week, after a short sojourn at the home of W. A Gile. —Miss Hattie E. Gile was agreeably sur ­ prised with a birthday visit from her young friends, on the 8th iust. That there may be many of them is the wish of your cor ­ respondent. .! — An excellent, interesting, and very in ­ structive discourse was given us on Sun ­ day afternoon- last, by Rev. Samuel Dodd, of Garfield. His text was chosen from ;Rev. 22.17, and, to an attentive hearer, the yull meaning of the grand invitation con ­ tained in this passage was made so clear that it could not be misunderstood. Tuesday. — Mrs. J.

A ' — Judging from some mammoth samples of Hartford Prolifics grown by T. J. Rider, ’ taters don ’ t grow small over there. The crop generally is not, by far, a full one in this vicinity, however, and is selling for about 50 cents per bushel. — At the children ’ s concert last Sunday night little Miss Cotton, .a 5-year-old, sang a sweet little song very distinctly, and Perre Boice waded out of his place like a little man, while the temperance talk was ably done by Nellie Yan Alstyne and Guy Williams. — Our congressman has many ■ personal friends in every hamlet in the county re ­ gardless of party, so we say ’ Rah for Ketcham! Coats are already off and busi ­ ness will be done. We fear there won ’ t be any living with the Courier correspondent here if many more counties like Dutchess are heard from.

A. Crandall on Tuesday, the occasion being the celebration of their 10th anniversary and the accompanying “ tin wedding. ” There were some ’ regrets from unavoidable absentees, and a large number of useful and ornamental presents. The bride and groom received their guests in the same suits they wore 10 years ago when enter ­ ing the co-partnership, and looked happy and willing to enjoy another 10 years. None who knew them but will wish them many decades of future happiness. After a sumptuous supper had been] duly dis ­ cussed. there was music, vocal and instru ­ mental. A reading by Sirs. T. C. Rider and any amount of real social visiting done. We noticed among those present a goodly sprinkling of town officials, viz: Supervisor Powell, assessors Pitts and Riphenburgh. commissioners Hicks and Davis, all men whose enjoyment mine host Crandell knew so well how to provide. Sir. and Sirs. Albert Harris were also out, Uncle Albert looking better than for years, and even the ladies admitted that Sirs. Harris was the prettiest dressed lady pres ­ ent.

He has nearly com ­ pleted a dam which will overflow about half an acre. The work is being performed m a very substantial manner. After the dam is filled Mr. Holland intends to stock it with brook trout. As the location is a good one and the stream perfectly adapted to the purpose, it will undoubtedly prove a a profitable ventire. — I. N. Peaslee has about completed some repairs and improvements m his paper mill which render it the bsst and most labor-saving mill in the country. The bleaches are so arranged that they are emptied directly into the straw washers, which deliver the straw beside the engines, one man being able to do the work which forme! ly required four.

The horses ran down the big hill near Daniel Hilton ’ s, throwing Mr. Perkins and a small boy violently to the ground. Al ­ though neither were seriously hurt, it was a wonderful escape.

Harvey ’ s. — Farmers hereabouts are wearing smil ­ ing counteances owing to the strong and steady demand for sheep.
