GAULT.--Mrs. Mahala Gault died April 27th, 1859, at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Stephen Hedges, Weedsport, New York, aged 68 years. This mother in Israel embraced religion when seventeen years of age, and from that time has been a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, until called home. At her conversion she was passionately fond of dress and ornaments. These ornaments were then laid aside and never to be resumed. She put on the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which, in God's sight, is of great price. She was adorned with the riches of grace and good works--the jewelry of heaven. In the early years of Methodism, her home was long the home of the itinerant. She loved the house of God, and gave her warm and hearty support to all the interests of the Church. She was a woman of great faith, of deep and uniform piety. In faith she lived, and in faith she fell asleep.
