In this village, on the 10th instant, Hannah C. wife of Wm. R. Sharp,
Esq., in the 43d year of her age.
The deceased has left
a kind and devoted husband, and a large family of children, some of them
of tender age--the youngest a babe of two weeks old--to deplore their loss.
She was in very truth, a pattern of patience and forbearance, exemplifying
at all times, and under all circumstances, the meek and quiet spirit of
a Christian. While in life, she was a blessing to her family--the
beloved of all who knew her, and a noble specimen of the true woman:
devoted wife, a tender and discreet mother, a true and faithful friend--sincere,
pure, just, truthful, prudent and domestic--devout, without ostentation;
charitable, without parade. She has gone to her reward.
"We watch'd her breathing through the night,
Her breathing soft and low.
As in her breast the wave of life
Kept heaving to and fro
"So silently we seem'd to speak,
So slowly mov'd about.
As we had lent her half our powers
To eke her living out.
"Our very hopes belied our fears,
Our fears our hopes belied--
We thought her dying when she slept,
And sleeping when she died.
"For when the morn came dim and sad,
And chill'd with early showers,
Her quiet eyelids clos'd--she had
Another morn than ours."
On the 11th inst., at Rifton, Mrs. Cyphers, wife of P. M. Cyphers, Consumption.

October 28, 1852
At his residence, in Danville, on Sunday evening, the 24th (21th?) inst.,
Daniel Van Buskirk, Esq., aged 62 years, 1 month and 21 days.
The deceased has been
so long and so favorably known to the people of Warren County as to render
it unnecessary to publish his good qualities in the columns of the public
journals. But for the information of those who may not have formed
his acquaintance, it will not be out of place to say, that he was one of
Warren's most prominent men, and one of her most faithful public servants.
He was a native of Hunterdon
County, N.J., but chose Sussex (now Warren) as his place of residence for
the last 40 years.
Enjoying the confidence(?)
of the fellow citizens, they delighted in placing him in stations of honor
and trust, and these stations he filled with ability and fidelity.
He has perhaps not been out of public office for the last thirty years,
and among the responsible offices he has held may be named those of County
Collector and High Sheriff. He has gone, and his loss the public
But not only the political
public but the religious public are called to mourn his loss. He
was for 18 years he was a member of that branch of Christ's Church known
by the name of Presbyterian. He was a liberal supporter of the Gospel;
and at his board the minister of Christ always met a hearty welcome.
But still more deeply
does his immediate neighborhood feel his loss. A few moments before
he breathed his last, one who has long been a recipient of his benevolence,
said with deep emotion to the writer of these lines, "He was the poor man's
friend." Yes many a man in straighed circumstances, and many a destitute
widow found in him a benefactor.
But deepest of all is
his loss felt by his bereaved, afflicted family. There may be others
to take his place in public stations; there may be others raised up to
act his part in the church; there may be other hearts opened for the relief
of the poor; but their can be no one to fill his place in the bereft family.
Their loss is an irreparable one--the loss of a kind husband and tender
father. But while fountains of grief are sending forth their torrents,
it is comforting to reflect that they do not mourn as those without hope.
In Westfield, Mass., on the 19th inst., Mrs. Luna Cobb, aged 45 years,
widow of Cephas Cobb, and mother of the editor of the Westfield "Standard".
November 4, 1852
December 2, 1852
On the 16th inst., at the residence of her mother, in Knowlton, Mrs.
Margaret Robins of Wilksbarre, Pa., aged 25.
In the church's hallowed shade,
Where no footsteps rude invade;
Till they rise as Christ arose,
Let the slumbering lambs repose.
Near the font, by which they stood
Where he cleansed them with His blood;
Placed in angels' watchful trust,
Let them slumber, "dust to dust."
Near the chancel where they knelt,
Where His pierced hands they felt
Pressing on the spirit's brow,
Let the dear ones slumber now.
Near the Altar where they fed
On the sacred Blood and Bread;
Till they rise as Christ arose,
Let the slumbering lambs repose.
At the residence of her father, near Vienna, on the 21st ult., George
Ayres, youngest son of Abraham and Mary Hance, aged 5 years and 6 mos.
See Israel's gentle Sheperd stands
With all engaging charms;
Hark, how he calls the tender lambs,
And folds them in His arms.
It wrings our heart to give him up,
The pang most bitter is;
But Christ consoles us with the hope--
They leave our arms for His.
At Oxford, on Saturday, the 27th ult., Miss Savilla Mushback, aged about
