In a brief notice of the death of Capt. Nicholas Gebhard, of the prop. CUBA, on Saturday, the types made us say that he was 35 years old. It should have been about 65, though his correct age is given as 81, he having been born is Lorraine, September 1824. He came to this country with his parents, when 3 years of age, and had followed the lakes from boyhood. The first boat he commanded was the schr. CONGRESS, of which he became captain in 1850. He was successively captain of the propllers CHARTER OAK, BADGER STATE, SUN, POTOMAC, NEBRASKA and lately of the CUBA, in which he owned a 1/10 interest. He leaves a wife and 7 children, Frank R., William, Lawrence, Miss Carrie, and Mrs. George W. Richards of this city, George Gebhard of Milwaukee, and Edward Gebhard of Rochester.
      The funeral will take place from St. Mary's church tomorrow, Tuesday morning, at 8:00. The remains will be intered in Pine Hill Cemetey.
