Mrs. Stimpson met with an accident some days since which was bad but might have been worse. She found an old package of what she called lampblack, on a beam in the shed, and placed it in the stove, but an explosion followed, which burned her hand and arm very badly, and in connection with a humor, is very bad.

Death has at last invaded the ranks of the advanced guard, and taken Samuel Williams, thus reducing the no. of those nearing their century of service to four. Mr. Williams was born in the house in which he died, 94 years ago. He entered on his 95th year May 15, and died June 10. Although he lived to a great age, the first 50 years of his life he was an invalid, and ill health prevented his filling positions for which his intelligence fitted him.

/ His life, therefore, was a quiet one, but eminently sociable in his nature, his home was a most hospitable one, and his door opened quickly at the call of friend or neighbor. He found the last winter a severe test of his endurance, and it was hoped the spring would restore him, but his attempt to resume his farm labors proved too much for his strength - he had turned his last furrow, and he laid him down to die. He calmly awaited the summons - the last movements of his lips being apparently a whisper of aspiration. Mr. William's father came here, a young man from Roxbury, in the early history of the town, and was a leader in revolutionary times, being a member of the provincial congress - the first commander of the minute men, and came out of the war commander of a regiment, but died a few years after - a great public loss. The following epitaph is found upon his tombstone:

/ "Here lies the body of Col. Samuel Williams Esq., called from this lower world to join the heavenly choir, May 9, 17[?], age 44 - his death a universal grief, but we'll adore". Mr. William's grandfather, Joseph Williams of Roxbury, was a colonel in the revolution, and William Williams, signer of the Declaration of Independence, from New York, was of a branch of the family, and the name was a prominent one in our colonial history. Mr. Williams leaves 2 in town 4 years older than himself, and Mrs. Conant is 4 days older.

We take the following from the Winona (Minn.) Daily Republican of May 6. Mrs. Hatch lived in Warwick many years. Mrs. Hannah Hatch, widow of the late Rev. Roger Hatch, died at Peoria, Ill. on the morning of May 3rd, at the advanced age of 79 years. Born Apr. 29, 1798, of Puritan parentage, she was reared in simplicity and cultured in all those trials which constitute a strong, thoughtful and well balanced character, so that when in 1829 she assumed the duties and responsibilities of a pastor's wife, she was eminently endowed for the position...Her body sleeps in the beautiful cemetery of Woodlawn in the sure and blessed hope of a resurrection into eternal life. The funeral took place this afternoon from the residence of Senator Windom, and was largely attended.
