Obituary

A FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. - On Wednesday of last week while the Democrats of Montpelier were firing a cannon to celebrate the Democratic victory in Connecticut a premature discharge of the gun terribly mangled Peter Lemwin, and seriously injured James Jangreau, two Frenchmen who were driving home the cartridge. Peter Lemwin died the same night. He was a steady, industrious young Frenchman, who had served honorably in the army. He was a member of the fire department, and his funeral which occurred on Friday at the Catholic Church, was attended by Engine Companies Number three and Five, the third section of the First Battery, the Montpelier Brass band, and a large concourse of citizens.
