LUE ON THEDEATH OF LITTLE JOSEPHINE W.
BY CADET X. B. w.
Alas! thou brightly op'ning bud,
That promised soon to bloom full fair!
The band of death in wanton mood
Hath plucked, and left thee wither'd there.
.Tis vain to mourn o'er hopes thus fled
Sweet hopes that sleep in voiceless death!
Tis vain to mourn thee o'er whose head
Hath swept the dread dark angel's breath.
But nature claims yet one fond tear
To fall upon the new-made mound,
Where the dear child that cheered us here
Lies sleeping in the cold-cold ground.
A father's, mother's tenderest care,
And friends that watched her couch of pain,
All could not keep within her there
The wasting breath--No, all was vain!
Time only round our hearts can weave
Its sil'vry chain that calms all grief;
But that green grave at twilight eve
Will still be fresh on mcm'ry's leaf.
We lay thee 'neath the old oak tree,
The bright stars watch thy last long sleep;
And winged angels mournfully
About thy grave their vigils keep.
Farewell, dear child! Sleep gently there,
Far from the cold world's angry frown!
- Farewell, our hope! I'll ever wear
Thy little heart beside my own.
0BITUA R Y,
DEPARTED, this life at his own residence in
Edgefield District, WILLIAM CULBREATH, in
the Seventy-third year of his age.
The deceased, was the subject for years before
his death, of painful affliction. For a long while,
a frame, once robust, had been bowed by disease,
and the loss, within a recent period, of a son of
his old age, and of the companion of his bosom,
for both of whom he cherished the warmest affec
tion, imparted to his latter days a more than full
measure of bodily pain and mental anguish. But
he bore all this with exemplary fortitude and true
He was descended of Scottish ancestry whose
family gave the name of Scotland to a section of
* this District near the Saluda River, and some of
whom were active partieipants in our struggle for
independence. These were a fine race of men
stalwart in body, of strong, vigorous minds, lofty
and independent in their bearing, with traces of
that high, proud spirit, characteristic of the na
tion from which they sprang.
The subject of this notice intermarried with
-BEERSHEBA ABNEY, a widow of -ABNEY, and
whose maiden name was POPE, a sister of the late
SAMPSON POPE of this District, by whom he had
two sons and a daughter, two of whom now mourn
the loss of one of the best and most devoted of
WILLIAM CULBREATH was one of those rare
characters, among the old-school gentlemen of our
country, who possessed, without much parade or
show, many of the highest and most estimable
virtues. He was a most exemplary citizen, neigh
bor and Christian: whose life presents mary stri
king points for emulation-who lived as one hav
ing no regrets for the past, and full of hope for
the future-in whose bosom shone so conspicu
ously the gentle graces of our nature, that it may
safely be said be left not an enemy behind him.
In all the relations of husband, father, friend, lie
exhibited an affectionate kindness, a just forbear
ance, a constant fidelity and a manly frankness,
which made him at once the steadfast friend and
faithful counsellor of all his neighbors. He ws
the first to arbitrate and adjust all matters ofd
ference among his acquaintance ; and it was se
domi that strife, discord and contention failed to
give way under the guidance of his prudent coun
sels. lie was essentially and practically a peace
mnaker. His mission was one of love and friend
ship; and his conduct securedifor him the appro
*' bation of all good men.
" A man he was to all the country dear."
for was a shining member of the Baptist Church
frmore than fifty years, and died a communicant
.and Deacon of Chesnut Ridge Church, within a
short distanCe of his dwelling, of which Church
he was one of the founders. As lhe had lived a
Christian of deep piety, performing all his life the
works of charity, so in his death the bright faith
of the Gospel was beautifully illustrated by the
heroic fortitude, the smiling benevolence .of soul
he exhibited amid his dread hours of suffering and
It is said, that " the good men do, lives after
them." How many will continue to bless the
memory of this aged father, and hold up before
their inmagination and the eyes of their children
his many striking virtues as guides for the forma
tion and improvement of future character. Whten
a good man thus passes from his earthly pilurimage!
it is fit that some tribute should be publicly p~aidl
to his many excellencies of character. That here
offered to. WuILLIAM Ct;LBREATU is very far beneath
his intrinsic merits-but it may serve, in some die
gree, to keep alive virtues, the very remenmbrace
of which must have a salutary effect on the minds
of his countrymen. A. M.
DIED, 8th of June, at her Fathier's residence in
this District, Miss ELIZABETH M. DEAN, aged
16 years and two months.
The sufferings of the deceased were of short
duration though most excruciating in character,
which she bore with the characteristic fortitude of
an humble Christian ; and though not a member
of the Church militant yet, in her last lingering
hours she gave abundant evidence that she was
going to join the Church triumphant.
Her earthly career, though short, was one of
marked amiability and morality. 11cr last nmo
- ments were spent consoling her parent with the
happy thought that she was going to Heaven,
where she would greet them, upon their arrival,
in company with the holy angels, if they were
butfaithaful to the end. A gloonm of sadness will
linger about those whonm death has bereaved, yet
whoen it is disarmed of its terrors, by the Prince of
Peace, the Christian has great reason to praise him
who gave, and has taken away.
" And the parents gave in tears and pain,
The flower they most did love;
They knew they would find her safe again,
In the fields of light above."
DAVIS' PAIN KILLER,
This will certify, that about four years since, I was
attacked with hoarseness at the lungs, a hard cough,
and raising blood, with pain in the center of my left
breasL: I was almost discouraged, but hearing what
wonerful succcss friend D~avis met with in cering
colds, coughs, pain in the sides. &2., I was induced
to giv, his Pain Killer a fair trial. I was thent rai
sing b~loodl from two to three times a day, and had
been about six weeks. withotut cessation. I folloawed
the directions, and to my satisfaction, my citughi soon
gave way, the bleeding eenised, my pami remnovedl, and
now I am enjoying a comfiortable degree of health:
no pain about me. no cough. no 1bleedimg. and have
a good appetite, Fleep sound, andt tindl my strength
gaining and my flesh also inercasing : andi now. wheth,
er I live long or not, I want everybtodyv to know what
this invaluable medlicine, through the bilessing of Clod,
has done for mec. I hare used it with eqlual success in
my family for many other complaints for which it is
recomended, and would most cheerfully reconmmend
the above medicine to those who bave coldtannd coughs,
espeilly those of long standing-never heg discour
aged anid say you cannot be cured, until you have
given Davis' Pain Killer a fair trial, as I have done.

DEBILITY AND PROSTRATION OF SYSTEM,
NERVOUSNESS, PAIN IN.BACK AND
LOINS, bc., &c.
As a remedy for weak and deliilitated Females,
there are few, if any, equal to BLI4S' DYSPEPTIC
REMEDY. Its action is prompt and effectual, and
unlike nearly all other tonic preparations, such as
iron, bismuth, acids, bark, &c., whose action is at
tended with more or less of irritation and excitement
to the system, is purely a tonic, and entirely free from
any irritating qualities, and, from thidfact, is peculiarly
applicable to those cases of long continued debility,
so frequently met with among females.
It will be remembered that nine out of every ten of
those cases of long continued debility, arise from dis
ease of the stomach. Debility, loss of strength, lan
guor and prostration of system, are mere symptonie of
disease, a disease which in a great majority of cases,
is in the noucNs membrae of the stomach, and to this
membrane should remedial treatment be directed, that
the cause may be removed, and with It the prostration
It is very frequently asked, How long must I take
the Remedy ? How long will it take to cure me ?
These are very hard questions to answer; for the du
ration of treatment will depend very much upon the
patient-her temperament, condition, and state of the
system. It should be remembered by every female
that the disease which they look upon as "general
debility " and prostration of the powers of the sys
tem, has been growing upon them perhaps for years,
and of course time must be allowed for the system to
grow back uagain into a state of health. The system,
under the influence of this Remedy, will very soon
recruit itself; but miraculous cures must not be looked
for, even if it is Bliss' Dyspeptic Remedy they are ta
king. It would be too much to expect of this or any
other Remedy, that a disease which has been growing
upon the patient and taking deeper and deeper root
into the system, year after year, shall be cured in a
few days, or even in a fewr weeks. .Although its good
effects will be experienced in a very short time, yet
the restoration to health is always a slow and gradual
process, for an entire changa..has to be wrought
throughout the whole system,-the impoverished blood
must be implroved both in quality and quantity--all
suppressed and deficient secretions restored-tone,
strength and vigor given to the muscular system--the
vervous systeia, braced up; and to bring about all
these changes, not only a good remedial agent must
be made use of, but time must necessarily be had for
the system to bring about such great and important
changes. Let these facts be remembered by all pa
tients, whether they take Bliss' Dlispeptic Remedy or
any other preparation-let it be remembered that time
is absolutely necessary to the system in bringing about
so munch chanuge, and thme restoration to health. Let it
lso bec remnemabered in the taking of this Remedy that
there should be in perseverance and regularity, and as
meh of the auxiliniry treatmnent carried out as cir
eummstnees will admiit or. If this is done, the patticnt
mty rest assured that there will be a gradlual und1
steady improvement; the debility and prostration,
and the whole categotry of little pains and aches, pains
in the back, loins, thee, head, &c., wilt all gradually.
I am very frequently inquired of whether it would
not be well to titke some of the preparations i con
junctioni with the Remedy. No; take nothing, for
youi ned nothing else; and besides, thme prepiarations
of iron, bismuth, &c., would, in a great many cases,
produce only an additional irritation of the stomnch,
the very thing that you are trying to get rid of; and
not only this, those p~reparations would do no good,
for they wouhld not be takeni into the circulation fronm
the closed state of the mouths of the hactacl vessels,
which I have already described in my previous adver
tseents. In conclusion, let me once more assure
every female, that by a steady and persevering taking
of the Remedy. she miny have every hope of recove
ry; but unless, when its use is conninencedl, there be a
determination to take it regularly, I woubil not adlvise
the trial of it, as neither the proprietor, nor those
having it for snle, desire any one to take it unless they
do so in good faith.
