Obituary

As time moves onward, death, with its noiseless tread, is ever stealing from our embrace some loved and cherished one, around whom the tendrils of affection fondly loved to cling.

Departed this life 31st of May, 1858, MARY, youngest daughter of Charles SMITH, Esqr., of Cass county, Ga., after a short but painful illness, of Scarlet fever, in her eighth year nine months and twenty-five days.

Time with the dear little Mary is over, no more will you be received into school with your playmates and companions, or into the social circle of relations and friends.  Life had many bright hours of joy, and peace, and love, for thee; but those golden hours are gone; thy bright dreams have faded, and thou art gone from youth’s romance to the sad reality of the tomb.

Mourn not for her; in life’s sweet morn
Her spirit passed away.
Like some fare flower that ope’d at dawn
And died at close of day.

So hath she faded from the earth
Her life’s short dream is o’er
Yet in our hearts her mem’ry shall
Be shrined forever more.
