All persons having claims upon the above Estate are required to furnish te same, duly attested, on or before the 29th day of February, instant, prior to a declaration of a Divident. G.R. LILLY, Trustee. St. John's, Feb. 8, 1876
March 4, 1876NewsThree young lads who left town just before the snow storm of Thursday last to fetch a load of firewood failed to return, and on Saturday the dead bodies of two of them, named Noseworthy and Ryan, were found near the head of Long Pond. They had lost their way and their life during the storm; their dog and slide being found near the former still alive. The other poor lad doubtless shared the same fate.
March 25, 1876FireOn Friday, the 17th, the house and store of Mr. HIERLIHY situated near Bay Robert's, and occupied by his son, was totally consumed by fire, caused by the upsetting of a kerosene lamp. We understand the premises were insured.
April 1, 1876NewsAt Bay of Islands, on the 18th December a man named Benjamin BRAKE, a half breed Indian shot another called CARTER, a trader from Nova Scotia, in the thigh, and in a quarter of an hour Carter died. He was the brother of Thomas Carter who carries on business in Bay of Islands. Brake is now in custody of the constable there, Wm. BAGG and will, we presume, be sent on as soon as practicable. No doubt, however, we shall have to take chance for this, for in deference to French Notions of French claims, we are not yet permitted to assert practical juridsdiction on what is called the French short and lawlessnes rules instead British authority on this British soil. BAGG, the constable referred to, we believe, is an "unpaid, unpensioned" volunteer, and why it is that he is charged or has charged himself with the functions of peace officer, we don't well know. It does appear, however, that he renders useful service in this line and that he is the man to hold fast his present prisoner, if needful, with a desperate grip. It is stated that the feeling of the people against BRAKE is so strong that fears are entertained of their taking the law in to their hands.

May 6, 1876FireThursday evening last was the time appointed for our fireman to meet for exercise; but it so happened that they were obliged to prove their mettle sooner than they expected. On the night of Wednesday last, the hurried ringing of the Beach bell followed shortly after by the the clanging of the town bell, aroused the citizens and drew them in alarm from their houses. Soon men, women, and children wre hastening towards the upper end of the town. Arrived at the scene, it was found that the fire proceeded from the West End Hotel owned by Mr. Azariah ALCOCK. Though the firemen were early at the spot and worked right well, almost at the risk of their lives, it was evident that the house could not be saved.

There is little doubt that this large auxiliary supply of good cheer to Mrs. MAC'S cupboard for the approaching festive season, will dispel the solitude of the Cove - make more cheerful the comfort and happiness of the MACS, and cause his Excellency's visit to be held in grateful recollection by the good people of Chance Cove. All wayfarers that may chance to pass that Cove during the winter will go on their way rejoicing. - Advocate.
