On returning from Gainesville last week, we were shocked and pained to learn that our friend White Sharp, Esq., of Cherokee, had been suddenly taken from the walks of life and called to his long home.  We understood that on Monday of last week he took a drink of cider, and soon after complained of a severe pain in the region of the heart; a hemorrhage soon followed, and early the next morning he closed his earthly existence.  He leaves a wife, several small children and numerous friends to mourn his loss.  For many years we have been intimately acquainted with the deceased, and loved him as one of our best and truest friends.  He was a strict member of the Presbyterian church, a good neighbor, an honest man, and a useful citizen.  Just one week before his death, we met him at Canton in good health, and shook his friendly hand.  Alas! How little did we think that he would be called away so soon!  Farewell! Dear friend, and may we take warning and “be also ready” when we are called to die; that we may meet at last
Where “sickness, sorrow pain and death
Are felt and feared no more!”
