Zachariah HARTSHOUGH died of the prevailing epidemic, at Genoa, Cayuga, NY on the 14th March last and on the 16th, Mrs. HARTSHOUGH, his wife. They were highly respected in their neighborhood; both their funeral sermons were preached by the Rev. Anning OWEN, Elder of the Methodist Episcopal Church, of Ulysses, Seneca Co.,, who was immediately seized with the same disorder and died on the 26th. Next morning, Mrs. Mary OWEN, his wife died; and on the ensuing day, they were both interred in one grave; to which they were attended by a numerous company of Methodists, and other professing Christians, as ever was witnessed upon a similar occasion.

The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Samuel L. RALEIGH, of Cayuga Circuit; from these words. “Set thine house in order, for thou shalt die, and not live.” Both families, were old settlers in Wyoming, a few years ago.
