DIED--In this city on the 24th ult., EMILIA MANUELLA, eldest daughter of Felix and Maria Palmes Bonifay, aged twenty-five years five months and eight days. The disease which robbed an extended circle of devoted friends, and which tore from the embrace of fond and indulgent parents this most gentle and amiable young lady, was protracted and painful. The patience and Christian resignation with which she bore her painful affliction is worthy of all imitation. She frequently expressed herself truly resigned to the will of God and confident of happiness beyond the grave. Her only regret seemed to be that she could not be spared to assist her aged parents in their declining years. Such fervent piety, such deep ????? love and gratitude are the happy fruits of proper paternal care and admonition, and will soften the anguish of heart that is now felt by her bereaved parents and brothers and sister. Her pure spirit has winged its flight to happier realms.
"She sleeps in Jesus sweetly now!
No pain in that fevered brow--
No more the struggling grasp for breath.
Convulsive, in the arms of death.

She sleeps in Jesus! Angels bright
Have borne her hence to worlds of light--
Have borne her, shouting to the skies,
Where bliss ............."
