DEATH’S Doings.—Over two years ago two young men left the 17th District of this county for Calvert, Texas, to seek their fortunes westward in a new country.  William and Thos. Patterson, sons of Mrs. Lucy Hoyle, of the above district.  They were both bright boys just merging into manhood.  In less than one year after their arrival in that far off land, Billy sickened and died.  Tommy was left to tread life’s maze alone.—Being an active young man he was promoted to the office of Deputy Sheriff of the county, which position he filled with honor to himself and satisfaction to his constituents.  A few days since his mother received the sad intelligence of his death from pneumonia.  Were it not for the testimony that they left behind them of a blessed immortality beyond the grave, the anxious and doting mother might have sunk under the weight of such a burden of affliction; but she finds the promise “My grace is sufficient,” fully verified in this trying ordeal. –Notwithstanding their dust sleeps side by side, in a land remote from their father’s, yet she is not without hope that, on the resurrection morn it shall be gathered, without the loss of a particle, with hers, to their Father’s above.  O glorious hope thro’ Jesus given, that though we part on earth we all shall meet in heaven.
