Death of Mrs. J. C. Milam.

After a lingering and painful illness of many months, Mrs. J. C. Milam, of this city, died on last Wednesday evening. Her death was not unexpected by her family and friends, as she had for a long time been a patient sufferer, and it was known for some time that her chances for recovery were doubtful. During her sufferings she had the constant attention of her husband and boys, as well as the very best medical skill in the state. Mrs. Milam was a woman very much loved and admired by her friends. She was a daughter of General Wilson of South Carolina, and had enjoyed the advantages of a splendid education and thorough culture. She was a fond and devoted mother, and the only regret she expressed at dying was that she had to leave her boys. The dark plumed angel of death did not find her unprepared. She was a Christian woman, and had no fear of death. Her remains were interred in our city cemetery on Thursday morning last. We tender to the bereaved husband and sons our sympathy in this the greatest bereavement that they can ever know.
