At Greenville, (So. Ca.) on the 25th ult. MRS. ELIZA BERRIEN, consort of the Hon. John Macpherson Berrien, of this city. Tho’ respected by all who knew her, the retiring and unobtrusive manners of this excellent lady, had a tendency to conceal from the public eye many of the virtues which adorned her character. It was in the domestic circle that the benevolence of her heart and the kindness of her disposition shone forth conspicuously and sought for gratification in the faithful discharge of all the relative duties of life; dispersing happiness, and exciting the love of all who were within the sphere of her influence. In her friendship, too, she was sincere, ardent and unchanging, as many who now mourn her loss, have experienced during many years. Under this painful dispensation of divine providence, the world and its maxims can afford no adequate consolation to the bereaved-yet they do not mourn as those “without hope” but having respect to the reward which is laid up for those, “who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory, honor, and immortality,” it is their “earnest expectation” that her works have followed her into the unknown world, and that she will “be found at the latter day” among the number of those who have obtained a good report thro’ faith in the merits of the Redeemer.
