Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 12 September 1873
CLARYVILLE, in this county, so we learn, is still improving. There is another new building going up.
THE PROBATE and Common Pleas court adjourned on Monday. There will be an adjourned term on the 1st Monday in October.
THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER is a very low at the present time, and boats find it troublesome to navigate. We learn that the government surveying corps of the river is near the Chester landing.
PERSONAL. -- Mrs. A. Block and her eldest son, Emanuel Block, left for the city of St. Louis last Sunday. -- Mr. Block goes there to go to school.
Rev. Father Burke is here on a visit.
LARCENY. -- A young man by the name of James Dirden, who has been carrying the mail between this place and Jackson for some time, was arrested at Oak Ridge last Saturday, charged with stealing thirty dollars. He was taken to Jackson where an examination in to the matter will be had.
DIED, on the 6th of September, 1873, at her residence two and a half miles west of Perryville, Mrs. Mary J. Gagnepain, in the 79th year of her age. The deceased was a native of France, and in 1842 emigrated to the United States, and soon after settled in this county, where she has ever since resided. She leaves relatives and friends to mourn her loss.
DIED, on the 9th of September, 1873, at his residence three miles northwest of Perryville, Mr. Ignatius Moore, in the 59th year of his age. The deceased was born and raised in this county, and has never resided outside of it. Mr. Moore was a kind husband, an affectionate parent, an exemplary christian and true citizen, and his absence from among us will be deeply felt. He was much respected by all who were acquainted with him.
