FATAL ACCIDENT - Mr Samuel McAdams, a young man familiarly known in this place and vicinity, having been in fact a resident of the county from his earliest days, died recently, near Wheeling, Virginia, of tetanus (lock-jaw) occasioned by his horse falling with him. Of the particulars of the injury we are not in possession; but such was the extent that he survived but a short time. He left here a few days before with a drove of horses; and was then in the full vigor of youthful health -

PUBLIC MEETING
At a numerous meeting of Citizens from the Northern part of Morgan County, held at the Reading Rooms of John Beub in Beardstown on Saturday, March the 5th 1836, Reddick Horn, Esq., was called to the Chair, and Owen M Long, appointed Secretary. The Meeting was composed of all parties and the utmost harmony and good feeling prevailed.
The Chair briefly stated the object of the Meeting, after which John Ayers, Esq. offered the following Preamble and Resolution, which being seconded by Thomas Wilbourn Esq., were unanimously adopted.
"WHEREAS this meeting having assembled according to public notice, for the purpose of conferring and interchanging opinions in relation to the best mode of selecting suitable candidates, from the Northern part of this County, for the State Legislature and for a County Commissioner; And whereas, this part of the County containing one third of its population, has heretofore been neglected and not directly represented for the last eight years and believing that our population is as well deserving and possesses as full a share of public spirit and enterprize as the citizens of any other portion of our county; We therefore claiming to ourselves the right of choosing our own members regardless of Party or Party views, will use all honorable means to elect such men from among us, as are entitled to our own confidence; and in order to accomplish this desirable object,
Be it Resolved, That a Committee be appointed consisting of Citizens from every settlement in the Northern part of this county, whose duty it shall be to ascertain the sentiments and wishes of every voter and that a meeting of said Committee and such others as may chose to attend, be held at this place on Saturday the 26th of March, for the purpose of nominating suitable candidates, one for the Senate, two for the House of Representatives and one for County Commissioner. On motion of Tho. Pogue Esq. and agreed to by the meeting, the Chair nominated the following persons as said Committee, viz: Elisha Carr, Charles Chandler, Isaac Plasters, Isham Revis, Benj:Sutton, Wm. Scott, and Amos Bonny, from the Sangamon Bottom. Thomas Simpson, from Panther Grove.

Thomas Pogue moved that the following be added R. Horn, C. Lee, H. McKean, . Penny, and John Savage, which was unanimously approved of.
Thomas Graham Jr., then moved that the Secretary Owen M Long, be added to the Committee, which was also concurred in. The following Resolution was then unanimously adopted.
Resolved, That the members of the said Committee selected in nearly an equal share from both political parties, shall meet as aforesaid and nominate without respect to party such persons as they may think are best qualified to fill said offices.
On motion of T. Pogue Esq., it was resolved that the Editors of both the papers in Jacksonville, be requested to publish these proceedings
in their respective papers, and then the meeting adjourned.
