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
