Jedediah Burbank, Esq., The death of Jedediah Burbank, Esq., of Bethel, announced
in the journals of last week, was for some time expected. he had reached the good old
age of 75 years, and although more vigorous than most men at that age he was not
able to resist the attacks of complicated disease and yielded at last to the irresistible
summons. Mr. Burbank had been one of the pillars of society in Bethel during half
a century. Born in Bradford, Massachusetts, he removed to Bethel in early life, and
marrying a daughter of Lieutenant Clark, one of the original settlers of the town, he
located himself upon the spot which he occupied during the remainder of his life.
He was forward in sustaining the institutions of education and religion, was
always interested in the civil affairs of the town, and active and judicious in
promoting its welfare. The large assemblage, gathered at his funeral, bore testimony
to the respect with which his memory is cherished by his friend and fellow citizens.
On Monday a man named Patrick Mitchell, stabbed his wife in the breast,
inflicting a dangerous wound. he was arrested after showing some fight, by
Officer Beaumont and Gould.
On Saturday, Mr. C. B. Welch of Parsonsfield, Me., while on his way to New
York, to purchase a cargo of flour, was robbed between Springfield and
Hartford, of a package containing $14,000.
