In Georgetown, D.C., on the 9th instant, at the age of 48, Mrs. Charlotte Sedgwick Stevens, wife of General H.L. Stevens and daughter of the late Abraham W. Sedgwick, of Rochester, New York. Her grandfather was General Caleb Hyde, of Revolutionary memory. For many months she was an uncomplaining sufferer and as the wounded bird flies to the nest and the sick and sorrowing child to the motherís bosom, so did her sanctified heart look heavenward in its affliction. In the minds of her husband and children her memory will be blended with all that is best and loveliest in their recollections. Eminently fitted to grace the social circle, home was nevertheless her cherished sphere, where, as a devoted wife and tender mother, she became the centre of every beautiful and hallowed influence. Summoned from earth in the meridian of life, she surrendered herself to her Fatherís will with beautiful submission and has bequeathed to those who loved her the legacy of a bright and lovely example, which will speak from her silent grave and forbid them to sorrow as those without hope
