An old and interesting relic.

Henry E. Abell, an attache of the New York Tribune, has presented to Hon. D.W.C. Peck, assemblyman from the third Oswego district, a very interesting relic of the old time. It is the commission issued to Lieutenant John Mills, commander of the fort at Oswego, appointing him a justice of the peace, issued August 31, 1751. It is the commission of George the Second, issued through George Clinton, then governor of the province of New York. It is accompanied by the great seal, which is a very peculiar affair, about five inches in diameter, and appearing like a big medal. Mr Peck proposes to present this curiosity to some institution in Oswego where it will be preserved- probably appropriately to the Gerrit Smith library.
