ijucnthed forever, one of (he bii;:ii'.est

The Governor's illness w.is of sh.ul du
ration, and until within a brief period pre
vious to his death, sujipose.l to be curable;
at leng'h, die syinptons of his diseaso as
turned a more threatening aspect, and fi
nally, cut off th exp'!0Uiti ms that had
been entertained of his recovery. His
disease: was complicate 1 in i's character,
but not at fii's'., su'jh as to excile any de
gree of alarm concerning his ullimite re
covery but uli.s! its progress soon made
, it nppirent, that the nnumful event which
has been brought about, was soon to oc
cur. The friends of the Governor, have
the consolation cf knowing, that his lodg
ings were comfortable, and that everthmg
that ublo phy sicians and atten'.ivc nurses
who were by his bod-side day and nigh
could do, Has done.
The funeral sifrvi'ies trx.k p'aoe at the
Otoe and Oin dm Mission, ou Tiiurs lay , :
Oct. 1J h, at half-past 3 o'clock, A. M ,
and was us fully attended, as c olid have
been expected, considering the slurtness
of the notice given.
The Territorial officers and psr.sorid
f,ietids of ihj deceased, wore crupa on
t'.ie left ar.n, and iu coin mm with those
assembled on this mournful occasion, ap
peared deeply affected, in view of the se
vere affliction with which they had been
visile, at this in'eresiiug epoch of the
territory of Nebraska.
The funeral service vs opened by the
Rev. Win. Hamilton, of the Mission, who
read an appropriate hymn, which was
sung by the audience, in a spirit sailed to
the solemnity of the occasion.
After singing, the Secrttary arose, evi
deiitly under the deepest emotions cf
grifvand made some appropriate remarks
indicative of the feelings of ihoe who had
come to pay the last tribute of res-peot, to
tho remains of him, who cams to occupy
fa high place iu the Tenitory, and i;i the
officious of the people' -hus sudJeuly
removed from the important sphere which
Liid been cssigtied h.tn iu the lei i itorial
ov eruii'.ot. A fcoiing a'luioj was
made to the loss sustained by the people
f Nebraska, an 1 by the territorial oili
rers, whose circle had been broken by
this unexpected struke and particularly,
to the in parable loss susLidiie J by tho do
l.sestic circle, cf wb.ieli l.e was the soul
