Why is Webster's Dictionary complete like the
helm-oak t? Because it is always full or leaves.
Why is the Congaree near Columbia like a vio
Iin? Because it has a bridge across it.
. Why is the bssissippi like the Island of Great
Britain ? Because it is much les than one of its

Wonder why it is that Congress requires every
body to pay his postage in advance? Is the law
beign!y intended to force the thought'ess and the
Improvident to saveforty per cent on every letter
mailed, or is it to secure " Uncle Sam" against
-any los" on dead lettera? Vast quantities of those
unclaimed tokens of love and friendship are burnt
'everj three months by the officials in Washington.
Query: What would a cart load of dead letters

Dr.ARTED this life on the 12th. of January, last,
,after a short but obstinate attack of Scarlet Fever,
AN ES JOSEPRIN E. the elhdst child andI only
'dasihter of Dr. John R. and Mary E. Mobley,
aged seven years and six months.
Diro. of the same disease, on the 10th of Janua
ry. WIIITVIELI.) S. eldest son of the same, aged
Tour years and eight months.
.ALso, from a similar attack on the 28th of the
skate itonth, BLUFORD GRIFFIN, younger son
and only surviving child of same parents, aged three
years and three months.
It is a sad thing to be called upon to record the
death of even a single member of a family, but such
a dity becomes truly painful, when a whole faimily
of Lovely children are suddenly snatched from the
fond embrace of affectionate parents. Such has
been the case in the present instanee. The inexora
ble hand of Death has been laid upon those, whose
-deaths are here announced, and proluced a void in
'the hearts of sorrowing parents which all the world
-cannot fill. Lovely in their lives. and giving aliun
dant promise of thise qualities which make life use
ful and beautiful, now, that they are dead, they de
:serve more than a passing notice. Although, in
affection. more dear to doting parents than to others,
yet in admiration, all, who knew thetn, regarded
'them alike. The eldest, a lovely daughter, though of
tender age, gave ample evidence on her death bed,
Ithat she was fully conscious of her happy destination.
:and with a sweet resignation, endeavoured to cam
'the distressed minds of her parents, by the asurance
-that Death. to her was but the gate to Heaven. In
Iher ease, how apt are the words of the poet:
" All that's bright must fade,
The brightest still the fleetest;
All that's bright was made.
But to be lost when sweetest."
Asrespects the little boys, it required no profond
:inuight into human nature to observe in them the
.seeds of much promise; and, although their ages
did not allow of their making manifestations on the
.dying bed like their interesting sister, yet the com
mand of Christ: "Suffer little children to come
unto me and forbid them not," is enough to console
the almost broken hearts of their disconsolate pa
rents. May the loss of these dear children redound
to the eternal gain of their sorrow-stricken parents.
