Bleyenbergh, pastor of the Catholic churcb, at Dexter, dled ou Tuesilay of last week, of licmornire of the lungs. He was a native of Hol land, 53 yeara oíd, and caiue to Detroit in 1868, from 1869 to 1683 was pastor of Holy Tiinity cbiirch in that city. The following in reference to his lite is taken from the Detroit Evening News: Every Detroiter remetnherg the horror wblch spread thrnugh the city on the moruing of July 23, 1881, wlien the neivs ot the wreek ot the steam yacht Maiöia was eiiculated. Thirteen of Faiher Bleyeubergh's alcolytes went down wilh the yacht. They went on their am.ual cxeursion, and after a day of pleasure met their death. Father Blyenlwr-h sur'-¦ ¦ ¦ "¦ aun utT va a changed man. His health, oever strong, broke down until he became a confliined invalid. Durinx two years he atrujrgled ujramst fate In niiinaring the buxiiH-88 it lii? parish, and tinaliy, wlien tie Bcorm broke O7er his head, he was zhen a It-aveof absence by Bishop Bores.-. and the parish was placed in charge of Bev, Fr. Donan, Who lias sinoe done njuch to straijihten out the complieations which resulted from Fr. Blyenbcrgü's troubles. The end of the year faw Fr. Blyenberjfh a conflimt-d inyalid, yet auxions as evei to work, and he was iven charge of t lx: Catholic parish at Dexter Two months ago he was torced to announce that Imr one service will be held on Sundays, and during the past rnonth he had been confinad to his bed. His funeral will takcplace from Tiinity church, Detroil, the scènes of his labors, joys and reatest griefs, probably next Friday. Few men could boast of the extensivo education of Fatlier Bleyenbergh. Well educated in Europe, he at quired a thoroutrh Knglish education in ihis couniry, which was further supplemented by ctensive travels in Eurojie anti the Holy Land. As a scientist he was a patiënt experimenter, and a great nam oer of his acquaintances credit hiin with belhi; the real inventor of the Vandepoele eleclric liht. Certain it is, however, tiiat Ik g'Yen an interest iu the coinpany for his improvements in the light. His greatc-l care was education, and inuch oi his time before sickness and lief overeaine liim was devoted to his schools. Personally he was a very large hearted man, as many of the poor people of his former parish eau testify.
