DIED in this city, Nashville, TN after a painful illness, Mrs. Lydia Waters Robertson, consort of Dr Felix Randolph Robertson.

In alluding to this chastening event, we do but justice to our individual feelings, while we redeem the pledge which we owe to society of perpetuating the memory of departed worth.

The history of Mrs. Robertson discovers a pure, beneficent, disinterested course of life. She was a Christian, in the largest sense of that word. Penury had no sting which she did not pluck-affliction no anguish which she did not alleviate with that smiling cheerfulness and benignity of manner which was in her spontaneous from the heart, and springing from unrestrained natural impulse.

She was a kind and affectionate relative, a sincere friend, correct and just in her religious and moral duties.

Resignation so softened the distress of disease, that the pillow of death seemed the pillow of repose, around which her virtures have strown roses of fragrance which shall embalm her memory. Even in that solemn hour, when "life hovered like a star betwixt two worlds," when her afflicted children clung around the breathing image-even then they heard from her pale lips the words of eternal life.

To her relatives we would say, there is something in the recollection of the scene which should calm the overflowing of tears. Weep not then that she has left, for another and a better world. Her spirit rests upon the bosum of its God-

Inspired by Him whose words are peace
And purity and gentleness
Each earthly grief and transient pain
Shall work her everlasting gain.
