    • Death of an Old Citizen of Berlin

      Says the News of Tuesday:-"Another of our old citizens, Mr. Henry Rothaermel, died today. The deceased has lived in Berlin since it was a very small village-about 40 years we think-and always commanded the highest respect of those who knew him best. He was a carpenter by trade and conducted his business in a quiet unostentatious way, thoroughly upright in all his dealings. When the Berlin Market House was put up he was made Market Clerk, and faithfully discharged those duties till he moved to another part of the town when he resigned some six or seven years ago. His health has been feeble for some time and his death was not unexpected. He lived and died a faithful and worthy member of the New Jerusalem Church, which loses one of its best friends by his departure."
