    "Mine Found in Orange County
    Johannes CLOSSON, formerly a workman of Mr. SCHUYLER's, about eleven years ago, came to me, and told me that he had found a mine on my land above the Highlands, at a place called Blooming-Grove, lying between Goshen and the river, in Orange County, where my eldest son Joseph SACKET, Jun. now lives. I made him several offers. He said it would not do, but if I would give him a lease for a term of years, he would carry it on at his own cost, and deliver me one half at the pit's mouth, and come to work in 6 or 8 month's time, and told me the ore was as good as Mr. SCHUYLER's. But he died before the time he was to come. About 4 years ago, I heard his widow made enquiry after a SACKET on Long Island, I went over to her, she said her husband had been dead 7 years, but he told her that on one SACKET's land, above the Highlands, on the west side of the river, he had found a mine, and that he dug very shallow, and could heave it out by bushels, but he covered it up carefully, and that it was near by a spring, and not far from a brook. There was an elderly Dutchman present then, and he said he had often evenings and mornings conversed with him, and he said he had often told him the same thing, and heard him say, if he had his leave, and lived 7 years, he should be a gentleman. Now if any person can discover the vein of ore, if it is on my lands, he shall have out of the first clear profits, 300 l., or he shall have it for a term of years, as CLOSSON was to have it, or he shall have the 8th part of it for ever, as witness my hand, July 27, 1752.

    The Yankee Card Writer.
    In our paper of yesterday morning we briefly announced the arrival of that erratic genius the "Yankee Card-Writer." He occupies rooms at the Globe, where he will be happy to see ladies and gentlemen who desire elegant wedding or visiting cards.
    A card case filled with tasteful and elegant visiting cards are an almost indispensable requisite to a lady or gentleman, and no one who mingles in refined society should be without them. Those written by the "Yankee Card-Writer" are quite equal in elegance and beauty to the finest engraving, and possess the important additional qualification of being the most fashionable style now in use. He will remain in the city but a short time, and those who desire to have their card cases filled with a beautiful article will do well to call soon. Specimens of his cards may be seen at the bookstore of L. W. Hall.

    "The "Yankee Card Writer"—We are gratified to learn that our fellow citizen, Mr. O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer," is highly eulogized by the press wherever he goes. The following which we clip from the Syracuse Daily Journal, is but one of the many favorable notices which have come under our observation. "Mr. S. has done a good business here, which he cannot fail to do everywhere. Indeed, he is without a rival or an equal in his line."

    O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer."
    O. Sackett, the "Yankee Card Writer."
    The above portrait of the "Yankee Card Writer," was engraved by Carson of Albany, N. Y., and though a poorly executed likeness, will serve to give our readers some idea of the personal appearance of this celebrated artist.
    Mr. O. Sackett was born near Rochester, N. Y., and at a very early age exhibited an extraordinary talent for portraiture and penmanship. His parents being poor, were unable to assist him, to either make progress in his favorite area, or in attaining an education. Through the kindness, however, of Professor Phelps, the principal of an academy in Sherburne, N.Y., he at the age of twelve years, commenced his education at that institution, paying all expenses except board by superintending the writing department two hours each day. After one year of close study, finding his wardrobe deficient in many important particulars, he became nearly discouraged, and seriously determined to engage in some kind of labor, which should furnish the means whereby he might procure books and clothes, and heprepared to prosecute his studies in a more respectable manner.
    A few days previous to that upon which he proposed putting his plans into execution, he was presented, by Prof. Phelps, with a teacher's certificate, and informed that a school had been engaged, which he could conduct (although then but thirteen years of age) as successfully as any person in the State, if he only thought so himself. This was advised by the Professor, who said:—"If you try to earn money by manual labor, your age, and lack of physical maturity will render it impossible for you to command such wages as would assist you in getting an education before you will become discouraged and give up altogether." The advice was taken—the first school successfully taught—after which, he for two years. alternately taught and was taught, until he arrived at the age of fifteen. At this time his talent for portraiture seemed to have gained the ascendency, and without instruction, or the advantage of witnessing the work of any artist, he boldly offered himself to the public, and for two years successfully practiced his profession in the different cities and large towns in his native State.
    His miniatures, for truthfulness, and delicacy of tint and finish, have never been excelled by any other artist in this country, and will be treasured, by those who possess them, as rare souvenirs, as well of the artist, as the original.
    At seventeen he had already enjoyed the patronage of large numbers of the most autocratic families, in different parts of the State, whose attentions soon brought him before the public, through the press. This so increased his business that he could not possibly execute miniatures as rapidly as ordered. Being ambitious, he unwisely applied himself day after day, and week following week, so closely to business, that he soon lost his sight.
    After careful treatment, in two months his sight returned but not sufficiently perfect to ever permit him to follow his favorite profession. Nothing discouraged, he immediately commenced giving instruction in penmanship,—arranged and perfected a new and beautiful system which he called the "Science of writing," by which he has successfully taught, in eight years, in this and several other States, about twelve thousand pupils, and left the field with a reputation far beyond any other teacher in the United States, not only as a professor; but as an original and most successful disciplinarian, and yet Mr. S. has never received a moments instruction in penmanship from any person—having already given instruction two years before witnessing the process pursued in any similar school.
    All the different professions in which Mr. S. has figured have been stamped with great originality and novelty. He seems never to have followed in a course, marked out by any but himself, and at present, and in every profession chosen, he has gained a higher position, and a more extended reputation than any person preceding him.
    Several years since, while carelessly using a metallic pencil, he discovered that a most beautiful impression was made by it upon enameled cards, he at once commenced presenting his young lady pupils (with whom he has always been immensely popular) with visiting cards written by himself.
    The result of this kindness to pupils free of charge, was such an increased demand of similar favors, that in order to stop it in future, the better to attend to the business of teaching, it became necessary to make a charge, and by demanding pay for visiting cards, Mr. S. thought to drive all orders away; but on the contrary, not only pupils, but those not under instructions were relieved of the delicacy which kept them from ordering cards for which no charge was made, and so great was the demand, and so numerous the orders sent, that a still greater, and more unreasonable charge was made, but with no better success, for the astonishing beauty and artistic perfection of his writing at once placed Mr. Sackett's cards far above Copper plate in the estimation of all persons of taste and fashion, and the extravagant prices charged were paid without reluctance.
    Mr. S., never blind to the attractions of money, decided to try card writing as a profession, and immediately commenced operations. Two years have hardly elapsed since, and yet the "Yankee Card Writer" (which cognomen has been assumed by Mr. S.) has effected the greatest revolution in the fashionable world, ever witnessed. —Wherever he goes he is thronged with orders from the most distinguished families, who notwithstanding they have already a supply of beautifully engraved cards, at a much cheaper rate, will use no cards except those executed by the "Yankee."
    In Albany, in seven weeks, Mr. S. executed with his own hand, and delivered to his customers, 30,000 cards.
    The rapidity with which he writes (every card is written by hand) is without parallel, and for splendor and perfection of execution, cannot be equaled by the most finished copper plate.
    Mr. S. is the originator of this profession, out of which he will easily realize a fortune if he does not, as a former case apply himself so closely as to destroy his sight.
    It will be seen that whatever Mr. S. has followed for a livelihood up to the present, has been suggested by circumstance, and developed and made valuable by personal effort,—hence, instead of exciting envy, it should secure for him the earnest "God speed you" of every friend of industry and genius."

When only 20 years of age he left his birthplace in County Kerry, Ireland, and in company with his widowed mother, came to Rochester, where he resided continuously for forty-three years. He learned the carriage trade at James CUNNINGHAM factory, and for a time carried on the business of carriage-making. For the past eight years, he has assisted his son, Thomas H. GROVES, in the shoe business. Deceased was always a Democrat of the old school, and was uncompromising in support of his political faith. He was a regular attendant at St. Patrick' church, in which he at one time served a sexton. In his large family he was kind and considerate, and, by diligence and energy, he succeeded in giving his children many social educational and business advantages. The immediate family consisted of the widow, four sons, Thomas H., and William E., of Rochester, G. W., of Buffalo and John L., of Chicago, and four daughters, Mrs. E. J. SACKETT, Mrs. C. J. MALOY and Misses Ida and Theresa GROVES.

    Something of Interest Concerning Frank E. Sackett.
    He Possesses All of the Qualifications Which Entitle Him to Hold the Office—His Able Business Career.
    There is no reason in the world why every resident of the county should not vote for the Democratic nominee for county treasurer. On the other hand there is every reason why each voter of Chemung county should cast their ballot for him. Frank E. Sackett, the man whom the Democrats of this county have selected for this office, possesses every qualification which should fit a man for just such an office. He is a thorough business man and has been allied with the business interests of this county all his life. He is quiet, unassuming and strictly business, and has a most complete knowledge of business methods and how financial matters matters should be conducted. If he is elected to the office of county treasurer—and every indication points to the fact that he will be the successful candidate—the taxpayers of the county may rest perfectly contented that the finances will be cared for in the best possible manner. Mr. Sackett at the present time holds the responsible position of note clerk at the Chemung Canal bank, which institution conducts one of the largest banking businesses in the state. For twenty-seven years he has been connected with the banking business and for that reason has a most complete business knowledge of financial matters end complicated financial accounts. Mr. Sackett has lived in Elmira all his life and his excellent reputation is too well known to every Elmiran to need discussion. It was on July 22, 1855, that Mr. Sackett was born—it also being the same year that Democratic nominee for governor was born—and they will go into office together. The Democratic nominee for treasurer's birthplace was at No. 28 East Water street in what was then the old Fourth ward. He is a descendant of one of the very oldest families in the county and comes from a family whose sterling worth has always been a matter of Chemung county history. Elisha Sackett, grandfather of the Democratic Democratic nominee, came to Elmira about 1825. He was a builder and at that time the present city of Elmira was known as Newtown. He moved here from Spencer and before that time had lived in New York. He was associated with Major Riker in the building business and in 1812 was called to Buffalo to build the first frame building in that city. Mr. Sackett's father was Caleb W. Sackett, who in 1855 conducted a bakery business at the corner of Lane and Carroll streets, the present location of Bundy's grocery.
    His death occurred about thirty-three years ago. Mr. Sackett, the Democratic candidate for treasurer, received his preliminary education in the public schools of this city. He attended both the Sullivan street and William street schools.
    On January 13, 1872, he entered the employ of the Pittston and Elvira Coal company, and remained with them just one year, lacking a few days. In 1873 he resigned that position to enter the Second National bank and remained with that institution until about the time of the big flood of 1859. In June of that year he accepted a lucrative position with the Chemung Canal bank and ever since that time has been one of their valuable attaches.
    Mr. Sackett is a prominent member of the Royal Arcanum, being a member of Chemung council, No. 208, of this city. He is prominent socially as well as in business circles and particularly happy in his home life. He was married twenty-two years ago and with his wife and daughter resides in their pretty home at No. 612 Maple avenue. Last spring the residents of the Eleventh ward showed their appreciation and confidence in the Democratic nominee for treasurer by electing him alderman, and his excellent record n the common council shows how well he has justified their selection. When a young man Mr. Sackett was a member of the Elmira volunteer fire department and served efficiently as a member of company No. 2, being at that time but nineteen years of age. Members of the department remember well his popularity in the company. Mr. Sackett has always been alive to the interests of the city and has assisted in more than one enterprise. He has always been one of the enthusiastic of the local base ball "fans" and has year after year aided liberally in maintaining every team Elmira has put in the field. He was such an earnest supporter that the members of one team took his name and called themselves Sackett's pets. Mr. Sackett takes much interest in all athletic sports and out door exercises and in his younger days was himself a good base ball player. He is well known and very popular with all classes alike and any one who knows him can not fail to like him. With his genial and pleasant ways he makes friends wherever he goes. There is not the slightest suspicion of a point that could ever be raised in opposition to Mr. Sackett's candidacy and the election to the office of county treasurer would be but a just honor. He is a gentleman and thorough good fellow and adds material strength to the strong county ticket. Sackett, Lynch, Weeks, Green and Colegrove make a quintette (sic) that is hard to equal and with the Hon. John B. Standfield to head the ticket should carry the county with a handsome majority."

    Le Roy, N. Y., March 20—This afternoon at her late home in Bergen was held the funeral of Mrs. Abigail J. FIELD, widow of Charles FIELD. Mrs. FIELD died on Friday night quite suddenly. While she had been an invalid for some years her death was not expected. On Friday morning she was not as well as usual and a physician was called. In the afternoon her condition appeared to be much improved, but about 6 o'clock she suffered a stroke of apoplexy and death followed in a few hours. Mrs. FIELD was born in Byron on June 11, 1929, and she was married to Mr. FIELD on November 20, 1849, and began housekeeping on the farm where her death occurred. She was a member of the Congregational Church, in which she was very active while health and strength permitted. The deceased is survived by two daughters, Mrs. George SACKETT of Bergen, and Mrs. Henry A. ARNOLD of Le Roy."
