In- her laily-walk and coiversa tion, she "adorned the doctrine of God her Savior in all thing3.r' She was the embo diement of all those amiable, graceful and truly feminine charms which give to woman ffcr peculiar empire, and to that empire all its delight and loveliness. The Christian meekness, the devotion to each tender tie, "tnd the uniform kindliness of disposition which marked her brief career, endeared her to society, and made her the idol of her friends. her last hours she proved the sustain ing nature of the Christian's faith. That God whom she had worshipped carried her in triumph through dissolving Nature's last struggle robbing death of its sting, and the grave of its victory. The high hopes of j immortality which she was permitted lo en tertain, enabled her to walk, without fear, through the dark valley and the shadow ol death; and, we are permitted to believe, il lumined her way up to the Temple above Her calm resignation and triumphant hope in death, will form he highest conso- New Goods. rniHE subscribers are daily expecting a general assortment of Goods fronrthe East, suitable for the season.
