WILLIAM G. CLOUDMAN.
We comply with the request of several subscribers in publishing the
following extract of a letter written to a brother of the writer in this city. Mr.
Cloudman was a man universally esteemed and beloved, and his sudden
death has been a severe stroke to his many friends. His genius and talent in
his chosen art had raised high expectations that he would, had he lived,
achieved fame for himself:-
"My Dear Brother; I can not but express to you the deep and heartfelt
sympathy I feel at your loss, in the very sudden and melancholy death of
our mutual friend Cloudman. Permit me to mingle my tears with your own
on this sudden bereavement, and while we mourn his loss, let us not be
unmindful of Him who rules the destinies of all his creatures. How can
erring mortals like us reconcile ourselves to the goodness of God, when we
behold such instances of His inscrutable Providence. But it is not for the
frail man to be distrustful of the goodness of his Creator, but in the death of
our esteemed friend we can not but feel sad and lonely, and while we
mourn him as far removed from us, and gone, think he is now far above the
discords and strife's of this vain world, and joining as we fondly trust in the
chorus of that sacred band, who are singing hallelujahs to the Almighty
For if there is a Heaven, (and I have no doubt of it,) if there is any happiness
for us hereafter, surely our friend will be in full communion with that happy
number, for he was excellent, he was good, he was pure in heart. His thoughts
were not with the low and groveling of the earth, but they sought a higher and
a brighter sphere, and his soul is undoubtedly now in Heaven.
In Bucksport, 11th inst., John Hubbard's house was destroyed by fire, and
one of his children suffocated by the smoke. Mr. Hubbard was badly burned
and lost house, furniture, and $200 on species. No insurance.
