RECALLING PIONEER LIFE.

RECALLING PIONEER LIFE.
The Old People of Four Counties Have Their Picnic at Oakland.

The meeting of old settlers of Marion, Hamilton, Madison and Hancock counties, at Oakland, yesterday, was attended by between 3,000 and 4,000 persons. The pleasant weather tended to make the meeting a success, and it was one of the most enjoyable gatherings the pioneers of the several counties have ever had. There were over 200 of the first settlers of the four counties present, and they had a pleasant time in renewing old acquaintance and talking over the happenings of pioneer life. During the forenoon quite a number of the old poople related reminiscences. Several glee clubs, composed of young persons, furnished music. The annual address was delivered in the afternoon by Judre D. W. Howe, of this city. His speech was able and eloquent. He recalled some of tbe hardships through which the pioneers had to pass, and then traced the great growth of the State until it has become one of the foremost in the Union. A great many of the relics of pioneer life were exhibited and they proved of great interest to the young people.
