    In DeRuyter, N. Y., Oct. 27th, of typhus fever, Matthew Wells, in the 68th year of his age. Bro. Wells has been from early life a professor of religion, and a member of the Seventh-day Baptist Church in DeRuyter. He was born in Hopkinton, R. I., and when quite young, with his father's family, removed to Rensselaer Co., N. Y., and thence to DeRuyter, among the first Sabbath-keepers that settled in this vicinity, and has been identified with them in all their interests, from that to the present time; a liberal contributor to the cause of religion in the church and society, and one of the founders of DeRuyter Institute, of which he has ever been a trustee.
    In the church he has been one of its principal members, faithful to its interests, in prosperity or adversity, and by his liberal hospitality, especially in the times of settling the western country, widely and generally known by the brethren and friends in their transit.
    In this bereavement, the Church will be deeply effected. His family also, by the loss of a kind companion, and an affectionate father, and the community, one of its oldest and most valued citizens. The funeral was attended on the 29th by a large number of citizens; and a discourse from Rom. xiv. 7, was addressed by Eld. T. Fisher. J. M.
