Other sections of the newspaper were not reviewed in detail for other possible articles, though a few were found and transcribed. Note that some of these articles are difficult to read and especially the numbers 3 and 8 and the numbers 1 and 4 are difficult to tell the difference between.

In Malone, on the 7th inst., Mrs. MARY SHERWIN, relict of the late Daniel Sherwin, left her family, friends and neighbors, for her home in the summer land, in the 75th years of her age. Mrs. SHERWIN has long been a resident of Malone, having left her friends in Boston when quite young and acommpanied her hsuband to this, then wilderness country; many and hard have been the trials that have beset her pathway through life, but nobly did she sustain herself as a wife and moter through them all. Let her memory be blessed for the many virtues, the solid usefulness and the kindly affections which she exemplified. Her physical form gave way under a stroke of Paralysis of the left side which has caused her to be quite helpless for some years, yet under all her sufferings she was patient and uncomplaining for the last seven months of her mortal pilgrimage. She received every kind ministration and attention from her friends and neighbors, especially from her eldest daughter, whose large heart was a fountain of comfort to both her body and spirit. But though she struggled hard to battle disease physically, she could no longer resist the summons from the spirit land, to change life physical for life spiritual. Welcomed to her bright and beautiful home in summer land, she now finds rest, where disease can no longer torture the noble energies of her fine spirit, where the loving tones heart sympathizing friends lull the breathings of her harmonious spirit in music utterances.

The Malone Palladium, 19 May 1864, page 2


Many of the aged are falling around us. This week [?] record the departure of one of the oldest in town, old Mrs. LINDSAY, who died at the residence of her son, A. Lindsay, Esq., May 11, in the 88th eyar of her age. She was born in Northumberland, Saratoga co., in this State - married Daniel Lindsay when she was 17 years of age, with whom in 1823 she removed from her native town to Essex Co., and from thence to Addison, Vt., where her husband died in 1840 - since which time she has lived with her son Alexander, and mainly in this town. Mrs. L. became in childhood, at the age of 12 years, a disciple of Jesus, whom from that tiem forward she devoutly loved and served. She united first with the Dutch Reformed Church in her native place. Though living in a newly settled country, where she had many cares and trials, she maintained her Christian integrity, as a bright example to her children and others. One of her earliest recollections was in regard to the hostile Indians visiting her father's home in the time of the Revolutionary War. In the war with Great Britain in 1812, she freely gave her husband, who served in teh battle of Plattsburgh. She has taken an intense interest in the present war since its commencement; she wanted to do what she could for the soldiers, and while able employed her time in knitting mittens and socks for them. She loved the world, because God gave his own Son to die for it. She loved her country because she believed its government the best which God has given to men. She cherished a deep interest in the welfare of the church and prayed much for zion's prosperity, and she loved her family and children as only a wife and mother can love. "The memory of the just is blessed."

Another Brave has Fallen.

Died at Bermuda Hundred, Va., May 18th, 1864, from the effects of a gund shot wound, received at the battle of Drury Bluff, (two days before), EDMUND AYERS, in the 33d year of his age.

The subject of the above notice was a native of Lawrence, St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., and the son of Elisha and Apph Ayers, both of whom still survive to lament the loss of the patriot son. The deceased also leaves a heart-stricken wife, a brother and three sisters, and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn his premature end; but with ever loyal hear, in the community they feel a proud consciousness that the cause in which he fell, was worthy [?] sacrifice. Mr. Ayers grew up to manhood in his native town, with a character free from reproach; and, at the outbreak of the rebellion, he earnestly espoused the cause of his country. He enlisted Aug. 12th, 1862, in the 142d Regiment, N.Y.V., and when the Regiment was organized he was chosen to fill the office of 2d Sergeant in Co. F, which position he held til his death. The duties of his station were ever discharged with promptness and fidelity; and all who made his acquaintance, knew him only to respect him; for as his chaplain said of him, "He was a brave and noble man." The many objects of curiousity which he was constantly sending with his letters, (which were ever cheerful and kind) to his wife and friends, tell plainly how strong were the ties which bound him to his home and family; and how sincere was that patriotism which enabled him to sever those ties in obedience to his country's call. During his last hours he remarked, with calmenss characteristic of himself, "I have done my duty, and I await the result. My hope is in Jesus, and the future is all bright." His remains were placed in a coffin, and decently buried in a beautiful grave near the place where he

Honor to the Brave.

Died - In Virginia, June 4th, from the effects of a wound received the previous day at the battle of Coal Harbor, J. RED M., son of D. W. and Hannah M. Hickok, aged [18?] years.

The subject of the above notice, with all the ardor of and impetuosity of youth enlisted last Winter into the 98th N.Y.S.V., whose terrible hardships and glorious bravery through the late Virginia campaign he nobly shared. [?] so very young he shrank from no danger and the day previous to the one of the fatal charge, the color bearer being shot, he bore them through the hot and terrible strife. When being borne from the field by a kind and loving brother, Lieut. Horace D. Hickok, his eye caught sight of the colors he said, "Stand by that flag, stand by that flag" But the kindness of a brother could not save him. God has called him, another sacrifice on his country's altar. One of the greatest desires he ssaid he had to live, was to see the succesful termination of this war, but he was willing to [?].

Another Young Man Gone.

While others are mourning over dear ones fallen in their country's service, news comes of the death of JOHN WILLIAMSON, son of Joseph Williamson, Esq., of Bellmont. He enlisted as a private in the 1st Vt. Cavalry, in Sept. 1861, leaving college for this purpose. He was soon chosen and received his commission as 1st Lt., in which capacity he served faithfully for almost three years. In writing to his friends, at the time he left collgege for the army, he says he did not come to his decision through excitement, but agert making it, for three months, a subject of prayer, and under a clear confiction of duty; seeing, first, that the war would work out the extermination of slavery, and finally, that God would bring good out of it, and through it glorify his name. And he concludes by saying: "Should I live thirty years, in looking back upon this, the greatest contest of right against wrong which the world ever saw, i cannot tell how I should feel if I should have to say that I was studying Greek and Latin and considered myself of too much importance to have anything to do with it; and certainly, I do not know who should fight for colleges and other institutions of this kind, if it be not those who enjoy them; and if God has any other use for me, I shall be just as safe in the battle-field as any other place." Young Williamson became hopefully pious, and united with the Congregational church in Malone in '58, and had prosecuted his studies with the ministry in view, as far as the second year in Middlebury College; and it was his intention to prosecute his original plan when the war was over. But his work is done; he has fallen in a noble service, about 26 years of age.

The rest may best be said by quoting from a letter of the chaplain to his father. This letter bears the date of "Chesapeake General Hospital, Near Fort Monroe, June 23.:

"The ball passed through the outer part of one thigh and buried itself in the other. Extraction of the ball and amputation of the limb were both impossible, mortification took place; his sufferings were great - he endured them as a hero. He had every care and attention. His care was such as our men get at their homes. He became delirious at 2 or 3 p'clock on Monday and at 11 o'clock at night, June 20th, he Died. His burial was attended with military honors and accompanied by religious services."

"He was prepared. He told me he had failed in doing his full duty to his savior - had been a member of the church five years; and now, in his final hour of life, trusted entirely the provisions of mercy furnished by his Savior, and felt sustained by his grace. Nothing but divine grace could have enabled him to bear his pains so wonderfully, or so calmly enable him to face the last enemy, which he saw approaching, as gradually and as surely as he saw the sun setting and the darkness slowly envoloping him."

"Noble hero! Christian hero! he has sealed his devotion to his country and his home, by his blood. Throwing aside the promises of a life of education by leaving college to battle for the life of our nation, he has revealed deep sympathy for man and willingness to give all for the principles of justice and freedom. We should mourn such heroes, only as friends mourn their absence; we can but rejoice in the noble records they leave for time and eternity. Fruits eternal spring from their graves. They just begin to live when they have passed through only the shadow of death and gained the unfading inheritance."

"Trusting this affliction may bring your minds, as it did the Lieutenant's into sweeter and holier communion with the Divine Mind,"

"I remain, most truly, Jos. Marshall, Chaplain, U.S.A."

Still Another.

A friend writing to his mother, from near Coal Harbor, June 8th, says that EDWARD W. HARWOOD, was "killed instantly by a bullet from a sharpshooter, which entered his right temple, passing through his head and coming out just above the left ear." The writer says:

"Dear Edward, your son, has passed from the pains and sorrows of the earth, to the joys and blessings of his heavenly home. He now rests in peace, where the roar of cannon and musketry no more disturbs his calm repose. He has fallen while in the discharge of a sacred duty, and gone to reap the reward of well-doing. - The company to which he belonged feel that they have lost a true and faithful soldier - one who was always at his post, willing to share the hardships and privations of his comrades in arms. And while he was a true and faithful soldier to his country, he was none the less true and faithful as a soldier of his Lord and Master. I feel to sympathize with you in your affliction and I do rejoice to know that he was prepared for his departure to the eternal world."

Young Harwood united with the Congregational Church in Malone, in 1859, though living in the north part of Bangor. He was then 17 years of age. He was 22 at the time of his death.

In Brandon, Nov 6th, 1864, AMANDA M., wife of Charles Adams and daughter of John M. Thomas, in the 39th year of her age.

ANDREW J. BRYANT, of the 142d N.Y.S.V., Co. A died August 24, 1864, in the Hampton Hospital, at Fortress monroe, Va., aged 33 years.

He fell a victim to that dire scourge of our noble army, Chronic Diarrhea.

He entered the service of his country at the time his REgiment was formed, and up to the time that he was unable to do duty, he was a true soldier. He was also a soldier of the cross of Christ, and for some years had lived a faithful life. Though of a quiet, reserved disposition and character, he still manifested to those who knew him best, the sweet spirit of one who was in communion with his God. A day or two before his death, he said, "I have trusted my Savior, and tried to follow him while in health, and now in afflication and pain, he is with me."

His residence, before he enlisted, was Moira, N.Y., where his widowed mother still lives to mourn the loss in the death of two dutiful sons who have fallen upon the altar of their country.

This noble woman, with a heart loving her country next to her God, at the commencement of this unholy pro-slavery Rebellion, had five healthy, robust sons, to whom she said, "Go, your country has need of you." They went' two have fallen, and the remaining three are still battling for God and the right.

May their lives be spared to see their countrye saved, and to sit beneath the overarching dome of the great temple of Constitutional liberty, and equal rights to all men.

A kind friend has sent the following "Lines" to the mother: [the poem is not transcribed].

JAMES HOOPER, formerly of Montreal, but for the last four years in the employ of S. A. FERGUSON, of this town, was accidentally shot on Sunday afternoon last, by his cousin Antoine? KING in Bellmont, two miles east of the Walker Moody saw mill. It appears that the deceased and Adam Catman left home on Friday last for the purpose of securing some venison, and in their travels stopped at King's. - On Sunday they all went out together, and in returning, King was in the advance, Catman next and Hooper in the rear. King held the breech of his gun under his arm, covered by his coat skirts, with the muzzle extending out behind, when by some cause unknown to him the gun discharged; the ball grazed Catman and entered the right breat of Hooper, passing through his body; he fell back and said "I must die here," and expired. The deceased was 32 years old - was temperate, honest and industrious. He was married at the age of nineteen years to a women five years his senior - whom he leaves with nine childre, and an aged widowed mother, all of whom were dependant on him for their daily support.

Horrible Rail Road Accident.

A horrible and fatal accident occurred on the Ogdensburgh rail roat at Brush's Mills, last Friday. A young lad about 16 years of age, named McMahan, was returning from school at noon, just as a freight train was passing. As many careless boys do, he caught hold of one of the cars to get a ride for a few rods, and in getting off he fell so as to bring his neck directly across the rail while the cars were still in motion. The wheel struck his neck, instantly severing his head from the body; the body sprang several times into the air, in the convulsions which followed.

This case should be a warning to boys not to cathc, or hang upon the cars while they are approaching or leaving the stations. It s a dangerous and foolhardy practice.

Another Soldier Fallen.

WILLIAM BAKER, of Co. K, 3d Reg't. N.H.V. was shot and instatnly killed on the 27th of October last, while the 10th [?] managed a determined charge at the enemy, of the Charles City Road, in front of Richmond.

The subject of the above notice was 27 years of age. He was born in Peru, Clinton Co., N.Y., but removed to Franklin, Franklin Co. about three years ago, where he resided when he enlisted. He was a young man of exemplary habits, and was loved and respected by all who knew him.

He leaves a wife (the daughter of Ira Lampson,) and a numerous circle of friends to mourn his untimely death. So it is, "in the midst of life we are in death."

Thus at one blow the young wife has lost a loving husband; the community a worthy and respected citizen; the M. E. Church a consistent and active member, and the Union a brave defender. But what is their loss is his etenal gain, as he died with the blest assurance of a glorious immortality.

His mottow was "his first service to his God, his next to his country."
