Carroll Co., Ark., April 27th, 186".$ Eoitok. True Democrat—We, the unders:t;m(l or.ictTs in tire Confederate serving in Northern Arkansas, learning that reports In ve been.circula ted and matter published pr judicial ti«|loyalty and bearing ot John W. Dull, a citizen <u tics State, a’d a brave and daring soldier, ns an act «.;* just ce to the said Dar*. we would state, that he has been in Col.. Sdinable’s eavstbv recruits lor several months, on the Insiders ot teas >state, and hasbei n in nearly every border 1 ray that lias recent ly occurred. No one has acquitted ItiniseL more gallantiv and displaved more deed^ o' daring, than John vV. Dark. *. Under the most discouraging cir cumstances, when others r.ere desponding, he has been ever active, bold and determined in arresting the prog.css of vandals, who have been desolating this portion of the State. V\ e have never enter tained a suspicion ot his loyalty, but on flic con trary, have recognized in him, a bold, dftwng and determined soldier, and one who has riflCed his lift- under the /host severe trials for nis country.

Truly is the death of wtr'h a man a public calamity. A man * i inti xibb- moral pniiciplo ano sp tless integrity. in hi* disposition, geutie ami g**in*ro »* in ! * ir daily inlei course, a. aide and pleasant, lie "ou the esteem and regard of all win) knen him. Po«<i*«6>‘d of rare a id solid virtues, though quiet, unassuming and uuustenta ti 4is, in' mad*' a lasting impression upon the commuuity. aad left behind him a memory around which there will richly cluster many a grateful association. Nor was he alone possessed of those qualities that gain the esteem ot men, but of those higher graces and ornaments of character that rife in God’s sight of priceless value. But Gfeo. I). £,i/.ar needs not the sounding pomp of words to declare his praise—his.life is his best eulogy—for Re lived in the purest and highest c mceptidn of the term—a Christian gentleman. Uncompromising in his clearly established convictions, ot great moral courage, conscientious, benevolent, gentle and humane, he was a Christian Bayard, without fear and without reproach. Justly, hie death is mourned by all— ' The community ha« lost a skillful physician, a good citiz n. and a rare example of unwavering virtue—the church a faithful, zealous and devoted officer. Long may he be re membered as he was—a monument of the graces that enoble. exalt and adorn the Christian character. But the loss of such a man to liis family, is beyoud the power ol words to ten. As his life was noble and beautiful, so was his death holy and resigned—lie is g no And doubtless untoRtm is given, A life tiiat bears immortal iruit, In the gr*-at offices which suit The full grown energies of Heaven. Our loss is hi-; gain, for. as one hath it. “ L*t dise lntion oome when it wiil.it can do the Christian no ltirm. tor it will be but a pas-age out of a prison into a palace; our of a sea of trouble into a haven of lent: < lit ot a crowd of ene mies to an innumerable company of true loving and faith ful friinds; otft of shame, reproach an 1 contempt, into » x cwding great and eternal glory.” May my last end be like his. * *• In this city, on the 1 Rtl« nit.. Corrif. only son of the hit Dr. C. McAlmont, in the 3d year of Ids age* ‘•Go to thy rest, dear child, go to thy dreamers bed! Gentle and uudeSled, with blessings on thy head; Fresh roses in thy hand, buds on tby pillow laid. Hash from this fearful land, where flowers so quickly fide. Before thy heart might !earn in waywardness to stray, Before thy*foot could turn the darkpmd downward way; Ere sin might wound the heart, or sorrow wake the tear, Rise to thy home of rest, in you celestial sphere. Because thy snide was fair* thy lip and eye so bright, Because thy cradle-care was such a fond delight, Shall love, with weak embrace, thy heavenward flight de tain? Noi Angel, seek tby place amid yon cherub-train.” * Pied at the residence of S. C. Flynt, in Prairie county* Ark., on the 21 of April, 1863, Charley Clayton Hives, son of B. W. and'II. E. Rive*, aged 3 years, b months and 13 day*. He was born iu Lincoln county, Tenn., June 20th, • I860, and was a child of more than ordinary sprightliness and intelect. That “Little Boy,” of whom it was our de light and prill to speak is no more. Hi* sweet spirit lias fled from the earth and 1 ft an aching void in our heart, and an anguish which will be hard to allay. The music of his voice is stilled; the mild beaming of his eyes is quenched in the darkness ol death; hi* arms are no more outstretched upon losing impulses nor his step speedy in affection's er rand?: the happiness ot his smile will no more impart its bltst contagion to our own spirit, nor the home places he made again pleasant by his bright presence. We were loth that he should depart. There were a thou sand ties that bound him to us We could not conceive that a flower so fair and full of promise should wither and die while within our grasp. But “ We shall all go home to our Father’s house— To our Father’s house in the skies, Where the hope of our soul shall have no blight, Our love no broken ties. We shall roam on the banks of the river of peace, And bathe in its blissful tide; And one of the joys of our heaven shall be— The liCle boy that died.” A Friend.
