                                         WILLIAM G. CLOUDMAN.

               We comply with the request of several subscribers in publishing the
          following extract of a letter written to a brother of the writer in this city. Mr.
          Cloudman was a man universally esteemed and beloved, and his sudden
          death has been a severe stroke to his many friends.  His genius and talent in
          his chosen art had raised high expectations that he would, had he lived,
          achieved fame for himself:-
               "My Dear Brother; I can not but express to you the deep and heartfelt
          sympathy I feel at your loss, in the very sudden and melancholy death of
          our mutual friend Cloudman. Permit me to mingle my tears with your own
          on this sudden bereavement, and while we mourn his loss, let us not be
          unmindful of Him who rules the destinies of all his creatures.  How can
          erring mortals like us reconcile ourselves to the goodness of God, when we
          behold such instances of His inscrutable Providence.  But it is not for the
          frail man to be distrustful of the goodness of his Creator, but in the death of
          our esteemed friend we can not but feel sad and lonely, and while we
          mourn him as far removed from us, and gone, think he is now far above the
          discords and strife's of this vain world, and joining as we fondly trust in the
          chorus of that sacred band, who are singing hallelujahs to the Almighty
          For if there is a Heaven, (and I have no doubt of it,) if there is any happiness
          for us  hereafter, surely our friend will be in full communion with that  happy
          number, for he was excellent, he was good, he was pure in heart. His thoughts
          were not with the low and groveling of the earth, but they sought a higher and
          a brighter sphere, and his soul is undoubtedly now in Heaven.
               In Bucksport, 11th inst., John Hubbard's house was destroyed by fire, and
          one of his children suffocated by the smoke.  Mr. Hubbard was badly burned
          and lost house, furniture, and $200 on species.  No insurance.
