Frederick, MD., Jan. 24.--Mr. George WENZ died this morning at the home of his brother-in-law, John EISENHAUER, aged fifty-seven years. He had been in ill health for several years, but was confined to the house for a few days only with an attack of the grip. He was engaged in business in Frederick city for the past twenty-two years. He always took an active interest in the development of the city and in the democratic party, having served as treasurer of the city committee for many years. He would never accept an office. He was offered the postmastership a few years ago for his fealty and in recognition of his services to his party, but declined it. He was a member of the United Steam Fire Engine Company, having served as a director for many years, and was largely instrumental in securing the first steam fire engine for that company, contributing liberally from his own purse. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. John EISENHAUER, and leaves considerable property.
