James J. Reynolds, Esq., of Pulteney, received the Republican nomination for Member of Assembly from the First District of Steuben on Saturday last. from a business and social acquaintance with Mr. Reynolds, extending through a number of years, we are prepared to give him our endorsement for business ability and integrity. He is held in high esteem wherever known, and will make a legislator that will not be turned from the best interests of the people by bribes or other means of personal emolument. A vote cast for James J. Reynolds will be a vote in the interest of reform and good government, and that is the demand of the solid mass of men of both great political parties.—Prattsburg News.
We shall hope to see Mr. Reynolds elected. That he will get a good vote in Pulteney nobody can doubt.

Last Sabbath morning, after church, Mr. James J. Reynolds and wife, while returning from Bluff Point Baptist Church, about one-half mile from the church, his horse became frightened at the top of his carriage. He got out of the carriage to lower the lines in the bit, when the horse (a colt) became unmanageable and started to run. Reynolds hung to him until he turned the carriage over, throwing Mrs. Reynolds out, hurting her hip at the time quite severely, but she is quite smart again. The horse and carriage came on towards home. The carriage, not much of a carriage, a complete wreck, horse not hurt. Considered a lucky accident.
