It will be seen by the above that only one warden and six vestrymen were elected:

St. PauVs Church. The following were reelected without a dissenting voioe: Wardens — G. W. Bender, John H. Van Antwerp. Vestrymen — William H. Rice, James H. Osborn, Ira Porter, Thomas Squires, William Lacy, J. Woodward, Jr., F. W. Flagler, Hiram Perry.

Church Holy Innocents. The following were unanimously elected for the ensuing year: Wardens — William H. Dewitt, William Mason. Vestrymen — Joshua Rathbone, Oscar L. Hascy, Gerrit T. Bradt, Caleb Palmer, Frank Jones, Samuel N. Van Santvoord, William Reynolds, Samuel Rork.

Trinity Church. The following named gentleman were elected as Wardens and Vestrymen for the ensuing year: Wardens — A. S. Beers, and Jas. Ball. Vestrymen—George Cummings, R. J. Story, John Pritchard, Wm. Granger, Wm. Little, John Sheridan, J. V. L. Pruyn and Evan James.

The high church ticket admitted men of both parties, in the spirit of liberality ; the low church did not. The former contended that the choral service being outside of the regular services of the church; the weekly administration of the communion, and the daily morning evening prayers, need not be attended by those who had no taste for them; but the rector had introduced an invocation in turning his face to the east at certain parts of the service, and took a position at the altar different to that of his predecessors, which was offensive to a portion of the brethren; whereupon they resolved to oust the old officers that sanctioned it. There being

a tie of three vestrymen, a new election became necessary.— Journal

21 Air, h. 60, 1. 51 James Edwards died, aged 69. Mr.

Edwards, from his former professional position and connection, was widely and honorably known throughout the state. He was born in Greenfield, Saratoga county, but came to this city more than half a century ago, and commenced the study of the law in the office of his uncle, the Hon. Alfred Foot, then one of the most eminent members of the bar of this city. Soon after his admission to the bar, Mr. Edwards entered into partnership with his uncle, and they continued together with a large and lucrative practice for some years, when Judge Foot removed to New York, leaving his large business here to Mr. Edwards. After continuing alone for a few years, he formed a partnership with the late Samuel Stevens, then and up to the time of his death, one of the ablest lawyers in this state. Their business was among the largest and most important of any in this part of the country, and Mr. Edwards brought to it admirable qualifications. He was always distinguished for his sound practical judgment, his solid legal attainments, his promptness and accuracy in business, the energy, firmness and integrity of his character, and his conscientious fidelity to the interest of his clients. His business was of a weighty and responsible character, and among his clients and friends he always numbered the most substantial men in this community. He was a man of great kind-heartedness, true in his friendships, warm and generous in his sympathies, ever open to the appeals of the poor and suffering, and ever seeking to rule his life in accordance with Christian principle. He was a liberal minded and public spirited citizen, and took a warm interest in all measures for the promotion of public interests. Up to the time he was taken ill, he had every appearance that would have indicated a prolonged and vigorous old age; and while we now feel that his course in life has been well and honorably fulfilled, the suddenness of its close cannot but remind those of us, who have journeyed with him, how frail and uncertain our own

condition is.—Argus The Presbyterian assembly met in Dr.

Sprague's church A long and severe rain storm continued with
