The deceased was the female teacher and instructress in Music, Drawing
and Painting in the Hall. She was a young lady of great promise;
and during her short sojourn at the Institution, by her agreeable manners,
amiable disposition, Christian deportment and faithfulness, won the affections
and high esteem of all the family and pupils. We deeply regret her
loss, but she sleeps in Jesus. Her remains were removed to the City

F. Compton, of inflammation of the lungs, aged 80 years. The deceased
was for many years a member of the Baptist Church. In her life she
was much devoted to the interests of the Church of Christ, and her death
was most happy and peaceful. As the time drew near, she rather longed
to fly away and be forever at rest. Of her it might be truly said,
"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."
At the same place, on the 21st ult., Sarah, wife of James F. Compton,
of inflammation of the lungs, aged about 45 years. The deceased was
for some time a worthy and useful member of the Presbyterian Church.
Her disease came suddenly upon her, and she rapidly pined away, but death
did not find her unprepared. She was waiting for the coming of the
master, and relying upon an almighty Saviour, she peacefully breathed out
her life into his hands. Her end was most composed and triumphant.
These two deaths have left the head of a family alone and deeply afflicted.
Having buried a mother and a wife, all his family, in a little more than

Near Belvidere on Saturday May 3d, William James, aged 26 years, of
OBITUARY.--In the city
of Trenton, March 31st, Arietta, wife of Joshua Coleman, and daughter of
William and Sarah Packer, in the 27th year of her age.
During the past year
death entered the family circle and removed two interesting children which
led her to place her affections on things above. From henceforth
she resolved to live in readiness to meet those loved ones where the friends
who meet, meet forever. In life she was distinguished as an affectionate
wife, a devoted mother, and a consistent Christian. In death she
was enabled to "possess her soel [sic] in patience" and triumph
in prospect of a speedy exit from earth to Heaven.--At intervals when reason
was not dethroned, she frequently expressed a desire to depart and be with
Christ, and her little babes with whom she seemed to hold sweet converse
when the earth was receding from her view. A large circle of friends
and relatives are left to mourn her departure, who will long remember her
amiable qualities, and call up her image when the sun shines, and the cold
winds of Heaven sweep unheard above her lowly pillow.

At the Delaware Water Gap, on the 26th (20th?) ult. Samuel Snyder, aged
25 years, 11 months, and 13 days.
The deceased was formerly
a resident of our village, and during his short stay among us gained the
respect and love of all who knew him, for his amiable manners, sound morals
and cheerful disposition. He has left a widowed mother, a group of
loving brothers and sisters, and a large number of heart-won friends and
acquaintances to mourn his exit from sorrow to bliss. What though
a man be stricken down in the midst of his days with the glow of health
and loveliness stamped upon every feature, if destined from this sin-chequered
life to bloom in immortal youth beyond the reach of turmoil and pain?
How well calculated to dry the mourner's tears., that fall upon the graves
of dear, departed ones, is the reflection that the sacred dust will
be watched over with an omniscent eye, til the commissioned angel shall
swear that "time shall be no longer;" when the spirit, which once animated
the body, shall again join its old companion beyond the possibility of
But, Samuel has gone
to rest--to rest from temptation and care--he has found a sweet, silent
pillow, beneath the cold, clayey sod, there to be lowered to indistinction
with dust. No high, towering monument is needed to blazon forth his
pure character to futurity; his ways and upright life will have place in
the memories of those who lived and associated with him. Sleep on,
peaceful slumberer; naught will disturb thy rest. Nature's rarest
flowers shall breathe their sweetest fragrance o'er thy grave, and the
lulling mournful sounds of the cool whistling wind at midnight, shall peal
forth a solemn requiem to thy departed spirit. And when Death shall
see fit to lower us to a level with thee in the damp chilly grave, may
our souls be bourne on the wings of bright, smiling angels to where thou
"How peaceful the grave; its quiet how deep;
Its zephyrs breathe calmly, and soil is its sleep,
And flowers perfume it
How lovely, how sweet the repose of the tomb;
No tempests are there, but the nightingales come
And sing their sweet
chorus of bliss.
There the rabbit, at evening disports with his love,
Or rests on the sod; while the turtles above
Repose on the bough of
Oh, soft are the breezes that play round the tomb,
And sweet with the lillies watted perfume,
With lilies and jessamine
The traveler outworn with life's pilgrimage dreary,
Lays down his staff like one that is weary,
And sweetly reposes forever!"
