[Of Portsmouth, NH, aged about 54 according to another article—ALH]

DIED—Capt. Place was the master of the ship Emerald, lately lost on the coast of Georgia.  The vessel was bound from Havana to London, and sprung a leak on the 21st September in the Gulfstream.  She was put about and stranded at St. Simon’s Island, where she sunk in four fathoms water and went to pieces.  Capt. Place arrived at Brunswick, Georgia, Sept. 25th, after great exposure, having encountered all the troubles and difficulties incident to looking after a wreck on a coast unknown to himself and his crew.  He was exposed not only to the elements, but to everything relative to the loss of a valuable ship and cargo, and endeavoring to save everything for the benefit of the owners and underwriters, but for the preservation of the lives of his men.—In these arduous exertions he was obliged to sleep on the beach, whereby a vigorous constitution was undermined.  He took passage on board the ship Gov. Cass, which arrived here on Sunday, from Savannah.  On the passage he was seized, from anxiety of mind and consequent circumstances, with congestive fever, and in a few hours after his arrival was removed to Holt’s Hotel, where he breathed his last soon after a physician was called in.
            Capt. Place was one of the most experienced and excellent shipmasters in the United States, and was most justly esteemed by his numerous friends, both in his native town, and in this and all other cities where he was known.

CASE OF ROBERT E. HOOE, U.S.N.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ALEXANDRIA GAZETTE.
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, MAY 19, 1838.

            In Your paper of the 7th ultimo, I notice in the editorial column the following article; —“Robert Emmet Hooe of the U.S. Navy, who was tried before the Superior Court, of Glynn County, Georgia, on an indictment for Voluntary Manslaughter for killing Dr. Geo. W. Palmer, of the U.S.N., has been found guilty.—A motion for a new trial was made and granted.”  Your statement of the matter is correct—but I question whether such a mere mockery of Justice deserves the name of trial.  I wish most respectfully to call your attention to the report of this case as given in the “Brunswick Advocate,” April 19th, and republished in some of the Savannah, (Georgia.) papers.  Brunswick is the County site of Glynn, and the editor of the above mentioned paper was present throughout the whole trial.—A further report is made in the Darien (Georgia) Telegraph, April 24th, (the Editor of this paper also attended the trial) in which the evidence is given as detailed.  By a careful perusal of those statements, you will be informed of the truth of my case fully.  I will as soon as I can procure them, send you the proper papers; and I now annex a correct copy from the minutes of the Court, of the order of a new trial, thinking that a true statement will not be uninteresting to numerous friends, whose names are to be found on your list of Subscribers.  I am most respectfully yours, R.E.H.
            P.S. Under the statutes of Georgia, a change of venue cannot be had, and I have found it impossible to get a new trial before the next regular term of the Court in December.

            The State, vs. Robert E. Hooe.  Indictment Voluntary Manslaughter—Plea not Guilty—Verdict Guilty of Voluntary Manslaughter—motion for a new trial.
            A motion having been made on the part of the Prisoner for a new trial in the above case, on the ground that the verdict is contrary to Law, and contrary to Evidence, and especially, that the Jury after they had retired to make up their verdict, had read in their hearing a letter which was not offered in evidence on the cause, but which influenced the mind of one of the Jury in rendering said verdict—And the Court having duly considered said motion—it is ordered that said verdict rendered by the Petit Jury be set aside and a new trial granted to the prisoner upon the grounds stated.  A true copy, certified by the Clerk of Superior Court, Glynn County, Georgia.

From the Brunswick (Geo.) Advocate.

Glynn Superior Court.
State,
vs.
Robert Emmett Hooe,
            Before Judge Henry.

            This was an indictment for voluntary manslaughter.
            Counsel for the Government, Edward J. Harden, Solicitor General.
            Counsel for the private prosecutor—Oneil, Hon. W. Law, N. Marlow.
            Counsel for Defendant, M.H. McAllister, L.S. DeLyon, W.H. Stiles, J.E. Ward.
            The Jury empanelled were:
            Wm. Burney, J. Higginbotham, Wm. A. Sallens, James D. Piles, John Piles, Jr., S.M. Timmons, Wm. Purvis, M. Manning, J.J. Morgan, J.C. Summerlin, John F. May, Thos. Higginbotham.
            The trial of this case has excited great interest in our community.  The defendant, a relation of the distinguished and eloquent Irish Patriot, whose name he bears, is a Lieutenant in the United States Navy.  While on service in the U.S. Brig Porpoise, in the waters of our port, in October, 1836, he was so unfortunate as to cause the death of George W. Palmer, under the following circumstances, which we derive from the evidence given at this Court by Mr. George May, acting purser of the Porpoise, and the friend of the late Dr. Palmer.  Mr. May was the principal witness of the Government.  Mr. Hooe was acting Sailing Master of the Porpoise, in the line of whose duty it is to take charge of the hold of the vessel, to provide and account for the water and stores.  While the vessel was lying off St. Simon’s Island, at the invitation of Hon. Thomas Butler King, the sick were removed to his plantation hospital on that Island.—Upon the same invitation to the officers of the Porpoise to establish themselves at Mr. King’s house, the deceased Dr. Palmer and witness, were residing on the Island.  On the morning of the 26th Oct. Mr. Hooe was ordered on shore to complete the watering of the Brig.  At the date in question Mr. May first saw him upon being suddenly awaked, while yet in his bed, about half past six o’clock, by the noise of an affray in the room adjoining his bed room.—He, May, sprang into the room and saw Dr. Palmer nearly naked, clothed only with his drawers, in the corner of the room, and upon the prostrate body of Mr. Hooe.  Mr. May called at the window to the sailors who were at the neighboring well, employed by Mr. Hooe in the watering party, for assistance.  They entered the dressing room and Mr. May succeeded in separating the deceased and Mr. Hooe. —
            The deceased being a powerful and athletic man and excited by the most violent passion, was controlled with much difficulty and by the exertion of great force.  Mr. Hooe was an invalid and was quite manageable.  Dr. Palmer was forced from the room and locked in one adjoining.  Thus ended the first assault.
            Mr. May then secured the guns which were in the entry, and returned to Mr. Hooe, begging him not to shoot Dr. Palmer.  Mr. Hooe replied that he was armed only in self-defence [sic] and should not use his weapons unless attacked.  While he was engaged in this conversation with Mr. Hooe, and about two or three minutes after he had confined him, the deceased rushed into the room, still undressed with a heavy pair of tongs in his hands, of the size of those produced which are three feet long, and weigh six pounds, but which Mr. May is not able positively to identify.  The deceased clubbed the tongs and struck rapidly and violently at Mr. Hooe’s head three or four times.  He succeeded in striking Mr. Hooe to the floor and leaping upon him in the corner, again raised the tongs to strike.  At that time Mr. May had hold of the pistol which Mr. Hooe had drawn.—Mr. Hooe exclaimed he is killing me.—Mr. May then released the pistol believing that Mr. Hooe was about to be killed.  Mr. Hooe then said, ‘clear the way I’m going to fire,’ or words to that effect and fired, as he was lying on the floor raised upon his left side.  The ball struck Dr. Palmer in the right breast and passed through him.  After being shot the Dr. struck two or three blows and then reeled and fell into the arms of a seaman standing near.  Dr. P. said he was dying and gave a message of remembrance to his wife, his child and his father.  Mr. M. had him removed to the bed in the next room, where he lived twelve days, and witness has no doubt that he died in consequence of the wound received from Mr. Hooe.
            Three of the sailors of the Porpoise next gave their evidence, only confirming the above testimony of Mr. May, and this closed the evidence on the part of the Government.
            On the part of the Defendant, Commander Ramsay only, was called, who testified warmly to Mr. Hooe’s character and reputation as a gentlemanly, valuable and efficient officer.  He went on to state that in the previous misunderstanding, which he was aware had existed between Mr. Hooe and Dr. Palmer, the conduct of the deceased had been highly reprehensible; but this evidence was ruled out by the Court, as being immaterial to the issue.
            At this stage of the trial the Counsel on the part of the State, and of the private prosecution, after consultation agreed to abandon the case, and that it should go to the Jury upon the Charge of the Judge.
            The Judge then, regretting the suddenness of the call, recapitulated the evidence to the Jury and charged the jury decided in favor of the Defendant.  The jury retired at half past eight, Tuesday, P.M., and after an absence of an hour returned a verdict of Guilty.
            This verdict excited great astonishment, and notice of a motion for a new trial was immediately given.
            Wednesday Morning, 18th April.  The counsel for the defendant presented their motion for a new trial, with the affidavit of the baliff [sic] who had charge of the Jury, that on the 17th instant, and before any evidence had been submitted to the Jury, he heard one of the Jury, John L. Morgan, declare that he would “stay in the jury room one while, but that Mr. Hooe should go to the Penitentiary.”
            The affidavit of John Summerlin, one of the jurors, was also presented to the Court, testifying that after the Jury had retired, John F. May, another of the jurors, produced from his pocket a letter purporting to be from Mr. Hooe to Col. Dubignon, the contents of which letter as stated to him by the said May, decided his mind to consent to the verdict rendered.
            The Court severely reprimanded the Jury (who we understand provided themselves with liquor,) for their conduct in the Jury Room, which it was willing to believe, proceeded rather from ignorance than willingness, and without hesitation granted the motion for a new trial.
            Note by the Editor of the Advocate.—In presenting the above report of this trial to the public, the Editor has felt obligated only to give an account of those facts which were developed in open court, excluding such as were by the Court ruled out.  Justice to Mr. Hooe, however requires that his conduct subsequent to this unhappy and fatal occurrence, should be made known.  On the day after the fray, Mr. Hooe wrote to the magistrates of St. Simons Island, surrendering himself to any examination they might think proper to make.  They did not arrest him, and after remaining a week longer at St. Simon’s, he was ordered to Washington by his commander.  After the Porpoise had returned, the affidavit of one of its seamen, Joseph B. Roach, was procured on the faith of which the Governor of Georgia made a requisition upon the Executive of Virginia to arrest Mr. Hooe for trial.  The Governor of Virginia did not make the arrest, but as soon as Mr. Hooe recovered from the dangerous illness under which he was at the time suffering; —he immediately proceeded to Georgia to surrender himself to our Governor, bearing with him the evidence of the falsity of Roach’s testimony.
            Governor Schley expressed his regret that he had made the requisition upon insufficient evidence and expressed his readiness himself to recognize for Mr. Hooe’s appearance at Court.  The recognizances [sic] were made at Milledgeville, in the lowest sum the law allows $25,000 and Mr. Hooe ha since attended at two terms of this Court with no other desire than for a fair trial.  It is also to be remarked that he relies for his defence [sic] only upon the testimony produced by the Government, though they are arrayed against him the by the vindicative [sic] feelings of a private prosecutor.
            We understand that there will be prepared as soon as possible a full report of all the evidences in this case, and hereby the public will be fully informed of its merits.

OBITUARY (COMMUNICATED)

            It becomes my painful duty to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Mr. John Parland, in the 58th year of his age.  His death was occasioned by a fall from his horse.  The deceased was a native of Scotland, which place he left when quite a youth, destitute of a home, friends or money; but from economy, industry and perseverance, he had accumulated a handsome property, which he has left with a wife and two daughters, who were the delight of his soul, to mourn his irreparable loss.  As a husband, he was kind and affectionate; as a father, loving and indulgent; as a friend, warm hearted and generous.  His house has long been the welcome asylum of the wearied, and his hands were always extended to the needy.  I speak of him not as a stranger, but as a friend and relative—one who has known him for years; and who has received from his generous hands, more than could be expected from a father.  Not even a thought foretold his fate—but in a moment he was thrown from the summit of life and happiness, into the dark valley of Death.  H.  Colonel’s Island, Glynn County, Ga.

            At the City hospital, 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, H.A. Pennick, one of Brunswick's oldest and best known citizens, breathed his last.  He was taken to the institution about a week ago and it was at once seen that his condition was serious and little hope was entertained for his recovery.
            Deceased came to Brunswick many years ago and was an engineer on the Atlantic Coast Line until about three years ago when he retired and has since been acting as agent for several remedies.  He lived at 111 Dartmouth street.  By his first marriage two daughters survive:  Mrs. George S. Watts and Mrs. Louis Jones, of Atlanta, and by a subsequent marriage one daughter was born and she is married and resides in Minnesota.
            On account of holding the remains until his daughters reach here no funeral arrangements have been made pending their arrival.  Mr. Pennick was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and the pallbearers will be selected largely from this organization.

PLYLER, Thomas Fletcher
The Macon Telegraph (Macon, GA); Tuesday 11 February 1862; pg. 2 col. 6

OBITUARY—THOS. FLETCHER PLYLER, died at “St. Simon’s Island,” on the 30th Jan. 1863, aged 19 years 7 months and 20 days.  The patriotic ardor of this youth caused him to volunteer for the defence [sic] of the South, and he joined the ranks of the “Thomson Guards,” and went into the service with that company at St. Simon’s.  The hardships and exposures of camp life, proved too much for his feeble frame, and he fell victim to disease.
            This worthy young man was an only child, and the relentless shafts, that has consigned his body to the place of the dead, has opened wounds in the bosoms of the living that will long cause an anguish, that nothing of an earthly nature can heal.  The subject of this notice was known to the writer from his infancy, and the testimony of the friends and acquaintances of his mature years, will confirm his own, as to the correct and exemplary walk and conversation of the deceased.  His bereaved parents will, it is hoped, draw consolation from the assurances, that the young soldier has now enlisted among the hosts of the “Prince of Peace,” and that in his heavenly kingdom, the tasks are easy, and the burdens are light, no weary sounds, no drenching rains, nor rude alarms, will there disturb his blissful life;
            “No chilling winds, or poisonous breath,
            Can reach that blissful shore;
            Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
            Are felt and feared no more.”     J.C.T.

FIVE DIE IN ONE DAY—The Death Wagon Rattles O’er the Streets from Morn Till Night—MINISTERS HURRY FROM BED TO BED—Messengers Wait at the Doors to Summon Them from One Chamber of Death to Another—The Pestilence Spreads.

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—(Special.)—Death did its work today, and tonight, beneath the sod in Oak Grove cemetery, five victims of the yellow plague sleep within its arms.  Three more are beyond the power of earthly skill to save.  Down Brunswick’s streets today the dead wagon moved rapidly, carrying the unfortunates to the graves that awaited them.  Back and forth the wagon passed, and as one grave was filled another was dug beside it.  The ministers, from early dawn, drove rapidly to the bedsides of their people; but their prayers could not save the lives they so anxiously watched passing away.  As the breath left the body of one, a messenger stood at the door waiting to direct the ministers to another.  They were powerless to save, and could only pray.  Noble, self-sacrificing ministers, He above alone knows all the good work they have done today.  As the newspaper men hurried fro house to house, getting a list of the dead and dying, they, at least, saw something of their labors.  The ministers of Brunswick, known now throughout the land, can die, should it be ordered, with the consciousness that they labored through famine, pestilence and death for their people’s sake, and at the throne of God, when their time comes, none can doubt, who knows their work, the reward that will await them.  In the golden book, the names of Thompson, Cook, Hennessey, Winn and Perry will shine with a light that cannot be dimmed, for their record is one of noble deeds.  C.W.D.

DYING RAPIDLY—The Pestilence Breaks Its Previous Records at Brunswick

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—There were officially reported today five deaths and forty-nine new cases, the record breaker of the epidemic.  The dead on the list are:  Whites—Burr Winton, Herman Grundy, Alexander Pritchard and Mrs. Oberlauter.
            At 9:30 o’clock tonight William C. Weed died.  He was a victim of imprudent nursing.  His nurse, through feeling for the man begging for food, like all yellow fever patients do, gave him, against the physician’s orders, some nourishing food.  He might have been saved had this not been done.
            The new cases are:  Whites, in Brunswick, 7; Hilda Poulsen, Bessie Firth, Samuel Silverstein, W.A. Line, Thomas Mulligan, F. McC. Brown and Mrs. Currie.
            Whites, on St. Simon’s, 3—Thomas Lambright, Monroe Lambright and Mrs. Taylor, making the total new cases of whites 10.
            To the official lists of deaths should be added one that occurred this afternoon, Lytton Hazelhurst, a negro boy on North Amherst street.
            Besides this a negro child, Pinkie Wilson, died and her death certificate, issued October 18th by Dr. Robert Hazelhurst, read:  “Cause of death, yellow fever; dead before physician reported her.”  This death, although occurring three days ago, has never been reported.
            This makes a total of seven yellow fever deaths that should be counted today.  Two others are hourly expected to die, Ernest George and Adolph Lavine.  There is no possible hope for them.  Two other deaths occurred today, Essie Beckman, a negro child, and Mrs. Scranton, but neither from yellow fever.
            The warm weather following the few days of rain and the cool spell has brought the disease rapidly to the front.  There are now 258 under treatment, 60 white and 198 colored.  The outlook is not cheering for twenty-five days yet.  When the dread of famine seems to be disappearing and the people are breathing easier deaths roll up and the fever increases alarmingly.
            One new case is reported at Jesup today, a son of R.W. Tindall, white.
            Four patients were discharged.  Six are now under treatment.

CAPT. D.G. PURSE, OF SAVANNAH, ENDS HIS LIFE WITH PISTOL—Well Known Man Ends His Life—No Cause Can be Assigned For Rash Act of the Aged Citizen—Captain Purse Was Well Known in Brunswick, Where He Visited Frequently—Former President Savannah Board of Trade.

            Savannah, Aug. 6—Capt. D.G. Purse shot and killed himself at 11 o’clock today in the toilet room adjoining his office in the old Board of Trade building.  No evidence is at hand to support any hypothesis other than that the case was one of suicide.  Captain Purse had been talking to his son, D.G. Purse, a moment before the shooting about the arrival of some mails.  Looking at the clock there was some question at to whether it was right and young Mr. Purse decided to go to the front of the building and look at the clock on the city hall to see if the clock in the office was correct.
            Turning away from the window after looking at the city hall clock, young Mr. Purse turned to retrace his steps to the office where he had left his father.  At that instant Mr. James L. Rankin, who has an office on the third floor of the building, approached the bottom of the steps leading to the floor on which Mr. Purse’s office is located.  As he saw young Mr. Purse coming towards him he called out, “Is your father in the office?”  Hardly had the affirmative answer been given when a shot rang out and Mr. Rankin ran in the direction of the sound.  It came from the ante room, the door of which was partly open, and facing the two gentlemen as they went towards the office door.
            As Mr. Rankin threw open the door an unexpected sight met his gaze.  Captain Purse was facing him in a sitting position with his head thrown back against the rear wall of the room.  In his right temple was a pistol shot wound from which the blood slowly poured.  The pistol, a 38-calibre revolver, lay on the floor at his side.
            Dr. H.W. Hesse was sent for immediately, and scores of persons who quickly learned of the affair poured into the place.  When Dr. Hesse arrived he found Captain Purse still living but unconscious, as he was when found.  He soon expired.  Coroner Stanley was summoned and came and gave permission to remove the body.
            No reason could be ascertained to account for the rash deed.  Captain Purse seemed in his customary frame of mind a moment before the shooting and talked about ordinary business matters.  His death was a great surprise to many friends who called at the office immediately to extend their condolence to the sons of Captain Purse who were notified immediately by telephone of the affair.  The funeral arrangements will be made later.
            Captain Purse had been in bad health for some time and was under medical treatment at the time of his death.  The events of the financial depression seemed to weigh upon him and members of his family had noticed that he was not in good spirits.  It is probable that he broke down under the strain of his long and active life and at its close his mind was some what affected.  He was a prominent member of St. John’s Episcopal church.

PUTNAM, Mary V.
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 25 December 1880; pg. 3 col. 4

IN MEMORIAM

            Died, at her home in Brunswick, Georgia, on Dec. 1st, 1880, MRS. MARY V. PUTNAM, wife of Mr. A.T. Putnam, in the 39th year of her age.
            Mrs. Putnam was born in Putnam county, and in early life gave her heart to the Saviour but failed to fully unite herself with any church.
            During her years of discipleship here on earth she bore with meekness the cross of Christ, and always seemed ready to aid in any good work.
            As a wife and companion she was amiable and true, and was ever ready to welcome her husband when he returned home from daily toil.
            As a mother, she was tender and indulgent and even in death’s agony she ceased not to teach her only boy of the way to heaven through Christ.
            As a neighbor, none knew her but to love her, for she was ever ready to do all that she could to aid the sick, the suffering and the dying.  She only required to be convinced that aid was needed ere she willingly did all that lay in her power to relive the distressed one.
            In death she saw nothing to be afraid of, her only regret being that she must leave those she loved on earth behind her.  Thus we see the effect of the undying love of Jesus, prompting and guiding all through the journey of life, and in the dark, gloomy hour of death.  He “sticketh closer than a brother.”  O, blessed Saviour, how precious are thy promises!
            Thus another friend has left us—left us only to appear again in that promised land of eternal day, where kindred souls shall meet in Christ Jesus, and sit down with all the blood-bought throng and feast forever on the bounties of our Father’s love.
            Farewell, dear friend!
            “Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee;
            Since God was thy Reason, thy Guardian, thy Guide;
            He gave thee, He took thee, and He will restore thee,
            And death hath no sting, since the Saviour hath died.
A FRIEND
