Alexander, Feb. 5th, 1861.
On the 12th inst., in this village, by Rev. Dr. Tyler, JOHN S. HOLDEN, Esq., of New
York, and KATE, daughter of the late WSilliam H. Wells.
On the evening of the 10th inst., of Cancer, Mr. GEORGE DORMAN, of this town, aged 54
We weep, as in justice we should,
For one who was noble and kind,
And one who was truly so good,
We scarcely, if ever, do find.
His trials and conflicts are o'er;
To his Saviour's dear bosom he's gone,
He suffers affliciton no more,
And his work of salvation is done.
Oh! weep not for me! would he say,
Could he but converse with friends,
Let the righteous hold to his way,
And soon, too, your troubles shall end.
Sermon by the Rev. L.J. HUNTLEY, from Psalms, 39, 4,--"Lord, make me to know mine
end, and teh measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am."
In Bethany, Jan. 30th, of Consumption, EDWARD M. DENTON, aged 36 years.
Then patiently wait and firmly press on
To that beautiful world far away,
For thee, weeping wife, your husband has gone,
And there, O! there, let him stay.
O! angel of mercy, watch over that heart
That's tortured with anguish and pain,
We know it was hard with your loved one to part,
But we hope you will meet him again.
