JOHN M. BOBE.RTS died at his residence
in Greenville Village, aged 43 years and 9
day. With those who knew the deceased, the

a most affecting emotions. To do justice to hi

Again and again does the eye meet with writei

life was even betterthan Isis fame, good as tha
' was, and his character higher than any praise

Mr. RossaTe had been for many years a pion
member of the Babltist Church, and an ordainer
d Minister of the Gospel. He walked worthy lib
. "high calling;" distinguished for a remarkable
8 memory and strong judgment, his preaching ap
plied with faithfulness and instructive fore- the
Slessons of the Scriptures to the practical dutie
C, of his fellow men. He taught by example a
well as precept. being "fruitful in every good
Sword and work."-"not a hearer only, but a do.
or of the word." lie was liberal of his means
0 never refusing-a just call on his purse or his timi
a for the bene~t of his fell ow men. He was "giv
n en to hospitality." He was meek and humbi<
in spirit, but at the same time "steadfast, im
movemble, always aboundinig In the work of thi
*, Lord." is life was not that of the seclude<
. hermit. The relations ho bore as a husband
brother, friend and citison, were adorned witi
dthe brightest christain virtues.. A large portios
of his I fe was connected with the mieroantili
)- business, which he conducted witis such judg
y ment and probity as to realise from it a hand
some competency; and at the same time win the
it highest ccnfidence and esteem of his cnmtome,
tand the community generally.--Mr. Rossar
never permitted passion and prejudice to govera

scalled on to adjust the business transactions o
his friends, and in responding to these numeron
calls the high qualities of his head and heart wers

arbiter when the decision was made.

mind was nevermore bright nor his temper more
calm. Hie desired, as he said, whilst strengtt
it remained, to say a few words to those aronum
him. After addressing the most sensible anc
* feeling language to his wife, to his brothers, sip
e toe and other., appropriate to each one, he ox.
c laimed, "It is a solemn thing to die!" and ther
n pausing a moment, with a brightened eye, anc
more forcible emphasis, he added, "strr rr ii
