Death of a Subscriber. A subscriber writing us from Bangor, requesting us
to change the direction of a paper, thus speaks of person, now deceased, to whose
address it was formerly sent. The writer adds-'I thought it might not be uninteresting
to you to hear from some of your friends, who have so often heard from you,
though they have never had the pleasure of seeing you.'
We assure our correspondent it always affords us pleasure to hear from our
friends, although it is a melancholy one, when the subject of the communications
is of the sad tenor of the one before us. The writer says: 'The ravages of time
have been visible here. She who teemed with life and hope during the course of
your last volume is now on more.'
Juliette A. the daughter of Joseph Dudley, departed this life on the 10th of
November last, aged 17 years and 10 months. The deceased was ever gentle in
her manners-thoughtful, but not melancholy, an apt scholar, a true friend; a
person of high and noble mind, and loved by all who knew her. She seemed too
frail a plant for this cold world of ours. In her long and tedious illness, not a
murmur escaped her lips; she bore her sickness with Christian fortitude, and in
last hour, while weeping friends stood around, she bade them weep not for her,
but prepare, by a life of usefulness, to meet her in another and better world;
where sorrow never can come. In her last moment, she thrice arose and bade
her friends farewell, and then fell asleep in Jesus, with a smile on her
countenance, that still remained when the grave shrouded her from our sight.
And shall not that bright spirit smile on, in its own pure sphere with a more
radiant smile, lit up by the light of heaven, as she moves amid the angel throng
of the redeemed and blessed of earth? Who does not feel to thank the great giver
of all, for placing us here in a land of light and liberty, and giving us minds to
look through the veiled future by the eye of faith, up to that world of promised

able to resist the attacks of complicated disease and yielded at last to the irresistible
summons. Mr. Burbank had been one of the pillars of society in Bethel during half
a century. Born in Bradford, Massachusetts, he removed to Bethel in early life, and
marrying a daughter of Lieutenant Clark, one of the original settlers of the town, he
located himself upon the spot which he occupied during the remainder of his life.
He was forward in sustaining the institutions of education and religion, was
always interested in the civil affairs of the town, and active and judicious in
promoting its welfare. The large assemblage, gathered at his funeral, bore testimony
to the respect with which his memory is cherished by his friend and fellow citizens.

Another Revolution worthy gone. Died in Buxton, on the 30th ult., Captain
Jabez Lane aged 88. He entered the Revolutionary Army in the summer of 1775,
in the capacity of 2nd Lieutenant In 1776 he was in the army under the command
of General George Washington, when New York was evacuated by the American
troops and bore a part in the action at Harlem and White Plains, and in the
capture of the Hessians at Trenton. In the spring of 1777 he received a captain's
commission, and at Fort Edward, joined the army, then on its retreat from
Ticonderoga, and took command of the a company in Colonel Nixon's
regiment. The regiment to which he was attached bore an active share in all
the action which preceded the capture of Burgoyne. Capt. Lane continued in the
service until 1780, when his domestic affairs requiring his attention, and
believing that the independence of his country was virtually accomplished he
requested a discharge. During this period he was engaged in much active service
and no officer of his grade bore a higher reputation for bravery and military skill.
Although he took part in many engagement, Capt. Lane had the good fortune to
escape from them all without a wound. His company when it left Long Island,
numbered 120 men, but the battles at Harlem, White Plains and Trenton, and the
suffering of retreat through the Jerseys, reduced it to 20. After he retired from the
service, he resumed the business of a farmer, and continued in that peaceful and
respectable occupation through the long reminder of his life, sustaining to the end
the character of an industrious intelligent and upright citizen. His latter days were
cheered, in some measure by the tardy justice of his country, having awarded him a
pension-and he went down to the grave full of years and liquor. It may perhaps
not to be amiss to mention that at the commencement of hostilities, two brothers of
Capt. Lane also entered the service of their county; one of them as Captain and the
other as 2nd Lieutenant; of the same company with the subject of this brief and
imperfect notice, they having enlisted the whole company by their own efforts.
