A WASHINGTON corresponden t says: The meeting of congress is now only five weeks off. A number of senators and representatives are in the city looking up their winter quar- ters. Some have leased houses, oth- ers suites of rooms in French 'flats, hotels, or popular boarding houses. In many homes the usual prepara- tion and improvements are going forward in making ready for the sea- son. At some houses the 5 o'clock tea has been resumed, at which gath- erings watering place gossip is ex- changed and discussed; and a few ladies hold informal receptions at their houses. But the staple social events continue to be weddings. Several in high life are now o n tapis. He Lived For His Country. - Jesse Smith of this village quietly closed his earthly life October 14, 1885, in his 92d year. He inherited a strong constitution and cared for his physical system by habits of in- dustry and temperance, and a firm faith in God. He lived till the body refused longer to do its work and fell asleep to wake in the beyond. In the home of his son, Nelson Smith, he spent theilast two years of his life in the helplessness of infan- cy. When kind friends could d o no more for him God/took him. With the poet we say: \And I am glad that he has lived thus long, And glad that he has gone to his reward, Nor can I deem that Nature did him wrong Softly to disengage the vital cord.\ He was born in Greene county January 4, 1\794 where he lived over fifty years. He spent a few years in Freetown and i n 1868 moved to Mc- Grawville. He has survived three wives, eleven children were reared and to a number of others he was step-father. His father was Elisha Smith, a soldier of the Revolution. The spirit of the father burned in the heart of the son and young Jesse took his place as a soldier under the Stars and Stripes in the war of 1812. Peace again rested upon us, Jessie returned to civil life. His second wife was Mary Ann Greene, daughter of a revolutionary soldier. Again the cloud of war bursted upon us i n the Rebellion of 1862-5, and Jessie Smith sent four sons to fight for freedom. Joel enlisted in the 9th New York Artillery; Nelson, in the 76th New York Infantry; Isaac, who died in camp on Arling- ton Hights, was a member of the 20th New York Infantry; and Jessie served in the 10th New York Caval- ry. Ancestry carries with it little in our republican -country, but if the family of Elisha Smith shall sustain the old flag in the future as it has in past, they may look back with pride upon their history. Mr. Smith was a member of the Baptist church of this place. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. D. B. Grant, pastor, and also Chaplain of Post Tarble Grand Army of the Republic. The Post was in attendance and headed the procession to the grave in our beauti- ful cemetery. The coffin was wrap- ped in the dear old flag, loved so well both by the dead and the liv- ing. Thus in the bright glow of the October sun, amid the falling leaves, with the burial services of our soldier dead, we laid the body of the hero to rest. Now n o more marches, no more conflicts, but rest till the \ General\ shall sound not for war but for peace, D. B. G. RESOLUTIONS OP BESPECT. Post Willian H. Tarble, No. 470, passed the following resolutions: Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God to call home our venerable comrade Jessie Smith of the war of 1812, Resolved, That we recognize in his departure at the age of 92 years the hand of an All-wise Father, who doeth all things well. That, in his removal one of the land-marks of our nation's history has gone out from us. That we extend to Comrade Nel- son Smith of this post, to his family, and to the large circle of relatives and friends the tender sympathy of our brotherhood. That a copy of these resolutions be sent to Comrade Nelson Smith, and that they be published in our village paper. To Occupy the M. E. Pulpits.

Rain commenced falling about six o'clock Tuesday evening and at mid- night Trout brook had risen over two feet. Rain continued during the night and all the day yesterday but not so abundantly as at the out- set. James Rowe's hen house was washed out and a number of hens drowned. About two rods of the wall forming the creek bank in the rear of P. H. McGraw & Son's fac- tory grounds was washed out and the water, commenced eating into the bank, but yesterday a quantity of brush and stone was put into the gap and prevented further damage. An empty tub standing clear from any eaves caught four and a half inches of water direct from the clouds during the night. The Mar- athon Independent reports water above banks and flowing across Streets and lawns. -Turfing in front of the Catholic church and a num- ber of residences has been washed away. At Lisle several houses near the depot are surrounded by water. LATEST NEW YORK MARKETS. Reported specially lor the MCGRAWVILLE SENTI- NEL b y Richard Perrin, agent, produce commission merchant, 87 Warren street. New York. BTJTTEB. NEW YORK, Oct. 21—Prices have worked up la2c. per lb. on all fine fresh table butter, and the supply has scarcely equaled the urgent wants of the trade. Other grades are held a little higher in sympathy with the advance in fine, but' they have not been in large demand, and toward the close begin to drag somewhat. The call is still mainly for fancy fresh goods, and jobbers seem unable to use any considerble quantity of anything else. Stock that has grown a little old flavored by holding is particular- ly hard to sell. State creamery pails have shown most improvement and close firm; wholesale buyers bid 26c, but get none from the fact that re- ceivers have no more than enough for their grocery trade. For a strict- ly gilt edge lot 27c. could probably be made. A number of lots a little below fancy arc offering, but find slow sale. Some very fancy State creamery in tubs is selling at 25e.

For fancy late made August 10c. is asked and a few parcels have sold at that price, but we hear of sev- eral large lots having been moved at about 9-Jo and good July and early August dates have sold at 8-£a9c. It is difficult to quote night milk skims, as they vary so much in price; special factories are selling above our outside figure but for average best lots Y-iaSc. is the current rate, with fair quality going at O-^-a'Zc.

Rose and Hebron sell up to $1.25al.50 when sound, but few are good enough for the latter price. Some very inferior lots are still going at 50c.afl.00 . TJTICA MARKET.

H. Benedict, formerly publisher of the McGrawville Express, has received an invitation to deliver an address before the Women's Christian Temperance Union of Bat- tle Creek, Mich., this week. We un- derstand that he accepted the invita- tion, and will address them in rhyme. —Numerous persons have asked us the past week who the author of the article \ Lost \ is and also whom it referred to. The article was not written from any certain individual motive but was thought to be of common interest to the many and might sow good seed where it would take root. If you have not read it do so. —We have before us a copy of the first number of The Board, a weekly magazine devoted to the game of checkers.

Quite a lively time was had at the W Oman's Christian Temperance Union last week Thursday over the question whether they should make the union a political organization and give aid t o the prohibition party, but the political element was i n the ma- jority. Unless the gas company produce better gas and keep a steady flow they will hear some kicking. The gas now gives a dull shady light and some- times stops flowing duringjthe night, then flows again thus putting out the jets left burning and afterwards fill- ing the rooms with poor gas.

Frank Loope has commenced keeping house again in this city. The steam mill commenced operation on Monday with L, Stanton as sawyer; E. McChestney, fireman. James Brown's musical voice is now heard inside the corporation. He occu- pies a portion of the Shepherd house. The first wise thing Jim did after getting settled was to subscribe for the SENTINEL. W. H. Hollister of Manchester, Dela- ware county, recently visited his cousin, T. N. Hollister. Mrs. Mary Champion of Battle Creek, Michigan, and Mrs. Francis Norris of Geneseo county, have recently been enter- tained at Mrs. David Seacord's. Seth Lawrence of Oneida, called upon W. A. Locke last week. Quite a large gathering on Saturday evening at H. Denmson's. They were all corn buskers and upward of 150 bushels were husked. A jolly time they all had. Harry was in his usual pleasant mood. One of the most interesting gatherings since my last report occured at Riley Stevens' a few afternoons since; it being the fifty-sixth birthday of Mrs. Stevens. A goodly number were present and a num- ber of presents were presented. We are glad to say that Mr. Shepherd has returned to Cheningo. He is a thorough and honorable dealing gentleman anfl it is sincerely to be hoped he will remain in old Cbeningo. Directly after the news reached here that Ohio had given a republican majority our citizens turned out en mass to cele- brate. Friday night was chosen and at that time two large anvils were placed near the corner and fired in quick succes- sion a reasonable length of time, when a torch light possession was formed com- posed of men, women and children and marched through the principal streets. The most pleasing feature of the eyening, however, was the speaking and remarks made by republicans, democrats and one who favors woman's rights—the latter bringing down the crowd. BASHFUL BOY. CINCIXNATUS. CINOINNATJS, Oct. 20.—F. M. Benjamin was in Cortland last week on legal busi- ness. Rev. O. Switzer our new minister, oc- cupied the M. E. pulpit last Sunday; preaching two good sermons and making a very favorable impression upon the peo- ple. The Masons of this place hold a festival at Perry's hall next Friday evening.
