MR8.SALLIE WARREN BOND,
whose death was mentioned In kind terms
by the Hkrald and Mail, of last week, was
lor many years a resident of this town, and
to those woo knew ber lntiuoatsly, this an
nouncement will bring aadness and sorrow.
Lett early In life a widow, with several
small children, and with limited means of
support, she succeeded, by Industry and
frugality, In raising and educating them
we.l. Three daughters and one son have
lived with and near her, from Infancy to
the time of ber departure; and never was
a mother more loved and honored, and
more devotedly cared for by her children
than the subject ol this notice; and the mu
tual ahVcttou and tenner friendship which
existed between mother aud children was
-vfien the subject of remark by those who
were lamiliar In the family circle. Mrs.
Bond was lor forty years an exemplary
member of tne Presbyterian Church, yet,
with an enlarged christian charity, she hud
a warm place in ber heart for all christians,
no matter by what name they were called.
Sne was a model christian, "alWHysabound-
ing.lu every good woru anu worn," auu ner
whole lite was a beaulilul exemplification
of our holy religion. Some facts known
only in the Inner circle of her own house
hold, are worthy of notice. Sue lasted every
Friday aud devoted most of the day 10
reading tne Bible, aud o secret prayer, and
never partook of ner breakfast, no matter
what her surroundings might be, without
first reading some portion of the scriptures.
1 he Bible was her constant companion, and
she had read it through, Iroiu begiuuiug lo
end, some thirty-six or tulrty-seveu times.
No one ever nractlsed more closely its sa- '
,,.iw exneeted trniu
oreu precepts. J
such a lite, Eh
To her, death nad no

"Why can you not give me up? This is not
death to mi, bulouiy going noine. Aly on-
i v trouble is. leaving 1011, '
who have ever
been so good and kind to me." Thus lias
passed away in peace and triumph this
pure and good woman s mother 1:1 Israel;
one but little known to tbe outside world,
but one of God's chosen jewels. She leaves
to her children the rich legacy of an honor
ed aud unsullied name, aud the sweet savor
of a consistent, unostentatious christian life

The Blaoton Cbapel meeting was crowned
with but little success, owing 10 the very
inclement weather at the time. Rain fell
nearly every day during i-hat week, yet, the
Rev. J.G. Rice .preached a series of able
and learned discourses, ooin practical and
theoretical. There has not been a more
popuiar minister on this circuit for many
years, indeed, all like him.
Kev. T. Jeff Dixon will commence a pro

as another good investment, and certain to

Many of the friends whom we caw, inno
cently aud unwittingly annoyed us with a
lenguiy catalog -io ot stale questions of a
personal nature, which of course we bore
patiently, knowing that 110 annoyance was
intended; hence we do not in the least com
plain, bat Hunk our friends ought to keep
oelter posted as to tue whereabouts of a
public servant. For notwithstanding the
Argus-eyed 1, litor of the Herald aud Alail
had caugbt Wind of our appri-4ch Iwfore we
reached Saelby ville, and heralded it to the
four winds, slating our residence, business,
visit aud ail, yet every other acquaintance
we met accosted ns witii the sterotyped
ques'ious, " Wheie dq you live now?"
i'eaoniug ctjool C,p there, are you?'' "Are
you goiug to teach agaiu ? ' eio. As before
stated, we know they meant uo harm, but
tue oft repeated q-aestious give us none tne
less trouble to auswer liiein for all that.
Aud tbequestions themselves are not very
complimentary, and would scarcely be per
tillent lo a Meino.ilst Ciicuil rider of the
first year's experience. In fact, in this age
ot adveriibiog by uewsp ipers, circulais, aud
cards, we dou'l know w bat rignt a man has
to oe continually asking us wu&t we are
,1041.1- For if a man is doing anything
Ltiess uuys, ue is particularly anxious 10 let
tue world know it: aud it he is doing noth
ing he is equally as anxious to conceal It.
So in either way Hie question is imperti
nent. We saw rrjaoy old friends assembled on a
once favorite spot, ' and were lit
erally overwhelmej with tneir kindnesses
aud courtesies. Amid ail these scenes aud
associations, there was ever preseut an una
voidable aud inevitable sadness lo see
some whom we had known (oug and weil
aud esteemed alar, a ordiuavy, sorely atTHct
cd but such is the lot of trail humanity
lite at best is a mixed cup of sadness and
sorrow, jteace and pleasure. Aud the prob
lem of life, says Socrates, is Dot how we g"l
into the world, but how we may make our
way through it in satety.
W'e did 110I propose lu th's sketch to tell
all we sp, cr SHk ol all We hid not see,
and as this ooimuaaication, like all things
sublunary, must liave an end,-we propose
to iuferpose no obstacle farther to iu reactt

that in the tent, berell of the allurement s
and ease of home they will more naturally
apprec ale the Gospel aud Us teaching ol
humility and equality.
