A Sad Bereavement.

We unintentionally omitted in our last paper to mention the death of Miss FLORENCE M., daughter of Col. and Mrs. W. W. RICH, which occurred on the 26 inst.  She and a younger sister had been ill for several weeks. Miss Florence was born in this county on the 26th of June, 1859.  In the fall of 1872 she united with the Methodist church.  Always cheerful and kind, she had drawn around her a great number of warm and admiring friends.  To know her was to respect and love her.  She died in the full triumph of her Christian faith, expressing just before she died an earnest desire to go and be with her Master.  The parents and relatives have the warmest sympathies in their sad bereavement.  We regret that the younger sister is quite ill, but we hope her life will be spared to her sorrowing parents.
