Rev. LaCount, of New York city, preached at the M. E. ch-urch, morning and evening, on Sunday. Notwithstanding the extreme wet weather, the opera house was more than half full at the rendering of the "Deestrick Skule," on Friday night. Our former townsman, Dr. Taylor, who has resided for the past few years in Detroit, has returned to his old home, where the doctor and his estimable wife have many warm friends. Wm. Warner, whose funeral took place from the Congregational church, last Friday, had nearly reached the age of 85 years, and was one of our oldest pioneers, having lived in this vicinity over 60 years. Thomas Chamberlain, who left our town only a few years ago, and took up his residence in Battle Creek, has returned among his old friends, quite contented to make Dexter his future home, and we are glad to welcome him. One of our grandest characters, Mrs. Cook, the mother of ex-postmaster Cook, reached the 8oth anniversary of her birth yesterday, and reliable report says that a number of her octogenarian friends celebrated the occasion at her house.
