THE COUNTY AND ELSEWHERE.

CASTLETON.

Rev. Calvin Granger, of Hubbardton, is about to remove with his family
to East Poultney,to officiate in the Congregational church, of that
place. Rev. Mr. Chandler, of Rutland, takes his place in Hubbardton.

The "oldest inhabitant," Mrs. Hannah Hoyt, widow of Noah Hoyt, died in
Castleton, June 21st, aged eighty-nine years. She possessed a very rare
temperament, living an eminently christian life, though called to meet
many trials. "While she lived she shone." Her decay was gradual and she
finally passed sweetly and harmlessly to her rest. She leaves three
children who "rise up and call her blessed."

A feeling of disappointment is current here over the failure of the
concert given by Graffula's Band in Rutland. The board of trustees of
the Seminary were perfectly confident of a pecumary success, as
Castleton has always aided very materially toward the success of the
Rutland lecture courses, and they looked for substantial evidence of the
approval, generally expressed, of their efforts to raise the
commencement exercises to a high standard.
