The following newspaper extract was submitted by Colleen Boose.

At West Stephenstown, on the 3d inst., by the Rev. I. B. COLEMAN, Mr. James H. CUMMINGS to Miss Emily L. KNAPP, both of Nassau.

Mr. Editor: In reference to the fall of the frame of a building in Tenth street yesterday, I wish to say that the job was not under my supervision as stated in the 'Times'. It was Mr. MOODY'S job, and the work was under the direction of his men. The cause was an attempt to put on the roof before the building was properly stayed. John ARCHIBALD, 2D.

The political Belleveretts, the particular friends of the Union, or in other words, the National Union Club of Troy, met last evening and appointed Harvey SMITH delegate to the State Convention which meets at Utica on the 12th. Lewis LILLIE, Jonas C. HEARTT, John S. PERRY, F.B. HUBBELL and C.L. RICHARDS were appointed alternates. No other business of importance was transacted. The attendance at the meeting was small though select.

- On Sunday last, a little son of Mr. R. CLARKE, was standing in the yard back of his father's premises, when a ventilator to an outhouse, about fifteen feet long, fell, and in its descent struck the lad on the head. He was taken up insensible, but by the proper application of restoratives, was soon returned to consciousness. A clothes line broke the fall of the ventilator, and saved the boy's life.
- Thomas SULLIVAN, a boy aged eight years, whose parents reside on Congress street, Lansingburgh, was drowned yesterday in the River in the rear of No. 4's engine house. His body has not yet been recovered.
- As a little lad named George CUMMINGS, about eight years of age, was bathing in the River near the Falls, on Friday last, he went in beyond his depth, and would have drowned, had it not been that John BROWN, merchant, saw the little fellow struggling, and hastened to his assistance. When the lad was taken out he was unconscious.

The body of the boy VAN OSTRAND, who was drowned on Friday last, was found in the river near the steamboat landing last evening. Coroner MADDEN held an inquest. The funeral took place this morning.

Mr. J. M. SPENCER, who resides on Mohawk street, in the Third Ward, was brutally beaten on Saturday night last, at the corner of Howard and Remsen streets, by a gang of ruffians who frequent that part of the village, evidently for the purpose of provoking a row with peaceably disposed citizens who may be called upon to pass that way, after nine o'clock at night.
