Mr. wrm.uT f relati ves and friends, both east and west. They caine to thfi then village of Dunkirk with the completion of the Erie Railway to the shores of Lake Erie. They soon formed many pleasant ac- quaintances, and entered wiib. zeal into eterything that tended to improve and Benefit their new home. In society they held a prominent position, and no gath- ering was deemed complete if Airs. Cobb with her youth, her vivacity and bene- volent disposition, wiis absent. For many years Mr. Cobb was actively con- nected with the Eria Railway, and was one of its most popular employees and agenta. Fifty years after one ar- rives of age tell a big atory in one's life; but the Golden Wedding of our friends was held with much less evi- dence of advancing years than usually falls to the lot of mankind. Their de- clining years can be but days of pleas- antness and peace; and they have the heartfelt wish of the OBSKKVKH that they may live to celebrate and partake of the joys of a genuine Diamond Wedding. Ilr. and ilrs. Cobb are both aatiyes of Maine: Mr. Cobb of Gorham, Cumber- Land county, and Mrs. Cobb, whose maiden name was Miss Abby G. Libby, inBuxton, York county. When MJ. Cobb waa born Maine was yet a territory be- longing to Massachusetts and aeni teiritorial delegates, appointed by the court, to Buutim. He was ttvu years old when Maine became a state. They lived ten years after their marriage in Hampshire, and Mrs. Cobb re- mained at Great. Falls when Mr. Cohh came to New York at the invitation of M.r. Minut to enter tbe employ of the Erie. Air. Cobb entered Dunkirk on the drat train that entered Dunkirk on the Erie, He was selected as brakeinan for the second of the two trains which left 1'ierinont (the terminus uf the the President and members of un board. The trains ran to Elinira, reaching there at p. ui. and left al ti o'clock thenexi morning. There were still two trains after leaving Qornclla ville, William, Hall being engineer uf one and Charlea U. Sherman of the other. At Forestville the two were united and made into one traia, and this was the famous train which bore the distinguished company into Dun- kirk to celebrate the opening of the road, on the lath of May, 1851. Mr. Sherman was engineer, and Mr. Cobb brakeinan. All along the whole road the other trains had to clear the line twenty minutes ahead of the Congress ional trains, and the switches were spiked, to prevent any possibility of accident. Mr. Cobb made his home in Dunkirk. He remained brakeinan for six or eight months, and then became a freight con- ductor. He froze his feet so badly that winter that he had to retire from active ailroading, and served for thirteen ionths aa sub-agent at Little Valley. Mrs. Cobb came West from Jfaw hire at that time.

I said to them: "Gentle- men, riut is a body able to speak for They then said that their object was to break up the organization of loco- motive engineers and to gather into r.hs one organization every department of ilie railroad Ren-ice, and that if the manage- ment of the Central road would recognize the claims of engineers only through them, this result will be brought about and upon a much lower basis rhun the brotherhood could admit under their rules, and if we did not do so -they would strike and tie up the rond. I said to them: 'T regard the Brother- hood of Locomotive Engineers as the best labor organization in the Cnited States. ae a safeguard both to the public and to the corporation, against unreasonable de- mands or intemperate violence, and you do your worst, but in. a matter which affects the brotherhood I will recognize only them."
