On the 16th inst., Matilda B., wife of Horace M. Norton, and eldest
daughter of Mr. Samuel T. Dickerson, aged 23 years, 6 mos. and 3 days.
This afflictive dispensation of an all-wise Providence, has with one stroke
severed two congenial hearts--removed an affectionate daughter,, and made
motherless an infant son. The departed, by her virtues and modest
worth, was much endeared to her acquaintances; and the hold she had upon
the affections of the circles in which she had moved was sufficiently attested
by the flowing tears of the closely crowded auditory at the funeral services.
There were no glittering attractions in her character, but her meek and
quiet spirit, and warm affection, invariably secured for her sooner or
later, a high position in the esteem and love of all who were favored with
her acquaintance, and her excellent qualities were best known to intimate
associates. For years she has been a beloved member of the Methodist
E. Church, and adorned the profession she made, not by loud protestations
of attachment to religion but by an unobtrusive and retiring performance
of its duties. Her dying moments were irradiated by the Sun of Righteousness
and her spirit sweetly passes away from earth's tests and sorrows to the
unclouded light of the better land.
"No terror has death or the grave,
To those who believe in the Lord,
Who know the Redeemer can save,
And lean on the the faith of his word.
O, teach us they will to obey,
And sing with one heart and accord,
He gave and He taketh away,
And praised be the name of the Lord."

A heart ever open to charity's claim--
Unmoved, firm its purpose, by cessure and blame;
And evermore prompt, whether mournful or gay,
With warning's in love for the passing astray.
For though spotless herself she could sorrow for them
Who sullied with evil the spirit's pure gem;
And a sigh or a tear could the erring reprove,
And the sting of reproof was still tempered by love.
As a cloud of the sunset, slow melting in heaven;
As a star that is lose, when the daylight is given;
As a glad dream of slumber, which wakens in bliss,
She has passed to the world of the holy from this.

By the death of Mr. Brokaw,
his family has been deprived of a kind and affectionate husband and father,
and his neighbors of an obliging and sincere friend. His death has
cast a cloud over the neighborhood, which the hand of time alone can dispel.
He sank to his long rest in a quiet and resigned manner, cheered by the
blessed hope of a brighter future. His last words were, "I am going
"I would not live alway--live alway below,
Oh, no, I'll not linger when bidden to go;
For oh, the glad morn soon will follow the night,
Where the sunrise of glory shall break on my sight,
And the full matin song, as the sleepers arise,
To shout in the morning shall peal through the skies;
And --- soft unfolding those portals of gold,
The King all array'd in His beauty behold
Oh give me, then give me the wings of a dove;
Let me hasten my flight to those mansions above."
