Cemetery. – We are somewhat surprised that the well at the Cemetery is not in good order.  In fact, taking into consideration the size of the cemetery, there should be at least two wells out there for the convenience of drinking and also for procuring water for the flowers and shrubbery.

The cemetery is visited a great deal and it is but right not only to ornament the grounds and beautify the, as far as the means will justify, but we also think a house of some kind should be erected upon the grounds for the purpose of resting in, and to protect persons who may be caught out there in bad or wet weather.

You are blest, dear Intelligencer, our Graveyards are still in the woods, and if any one should visit them to revive fond memory, they would go and turn over brush, stumps, and old open graves, very much chagrined and mortified in feeling.
