One night a few weeks since a barn standing at same distance from other buildings owned by Curtis GATES of North Bloomfield, was burned to ashes. To take its place he immediately erected a large and handsome barn near his other buildings, just across the road from his house. Between 12 and 1 o'clock last Saturday morning this new barn, filled with hay and wheat just harvested, was also burned. In this fresh loss there is a widespread sympathy for Mr. GATES, one of the kindest of men, who would far rather suffer than do a wrong, against whom it is hard to conceive nor could any human being harbor a feeling of enmity.

Walter J. DIXON, a wealthy farmer of West Bloomfield, and a life-long Democrat, who has served the town two terms as supervisor, says he cannot go Cleveland and free trade any longer but will vote for
HARRISON and protection to American products and American labor.
The large new barn of Curtis C. GATES, at North Bloomfield, together with the contents was totally consumed by an incendiary fire on Friday morning last. The barn was but just completed and contained the wheat from thirty- five acres and oats from ten acres of ground. C. H. HOPKINS owned a half interest in the grain. Barn and contents were partially insured.
There is to be a pole raising and general picnic on the farm of R. S. CHAPIN, in West Bloomfield, on Friday afternoon next (10th inst). Any one that knows Robert will know that the flag that will float from the top of the pole will bear the name of HARRISON and MORTON. Hon. Hanford STRUBLE of Penn Yan and Hon. Edwin HICKS, of Canandaigua, will be present and address the people on the political issues of the day. Good music will be in attendance and after the speaking and the crowd have investigated their lunch baskets, there will be a game of base ball between two picked nines, also a game of old fashioned wicket balls. There will be fireworks in the evening. The grounds are well shaded and a pleasant time is insured to the large crowd that will be in attendance.
