Mrs. Myer's Funeral

Yesterday evening a large concourse of people followed the remains of Mrs. Myers to the grave. The services at the Chapel were conducted by the Rector, Rev. Mr. Leonard, and were brief but very impressive.

There were thirty-two carriages in the procession. The Odd Fellows were out in strength, and taken altogether. It was one of the largest funerals that we have witnessed in this city, attesting in a positive manner the high regard entertained by our citizens for the lamented dead.

The following gentlemen noted as pall-bearers: Messrs. J. C. Thompson, J. W. Houx, F. Houston, Wm. Latour, C.W. Bullen, and Mr. Jakeman.

The last sad rites have been paid to this good lady, but she will be affectionately remembered by family and friends for many years, as during life.
