Death of an Accomplished Young Lady.

We hear this week the melancholy announcement of the death of Miss LAURA EUGENIA POPE, of Washington, Wilkes county, Ga., a daughter of Wm. A. Pope, and grand daughter of our beloved fellow-citizen, Maj. Mark A. Cooper.  The bereavement is a very sad one.  Miss Pope had just completed her college days, was a young lady uncommonly gifted and lovely both in character and person.  She had expected making a visit to Maj. Cooper’s this summer, but an attack of fever prevented it.  She died at her father’s in Washington, Wednesday morning, the 10th inst.  Surely Heaven gathers choice treasures within its garners.
