DIED, at Hickory Flat, Ga., Oct. 29th, 1872, MAGGIE CORIENTIES, infant daughter of Mrs. N. C. BOGER, aged one year and ten days.

“O who shall tell what fearful pangs
That mother’s heart are rending,
As o’er her infant’s little grave
Her wasted from is bending;
From many an eye that weeps today,
Delight may beam tomorrow;
But she—her precious babe is not;
And what remains but sorrow?

Bereaved one! I may not chide
Thy tears and bitter sobbing—
Weep on! ‘twill cool that burning brow,
And still that bosom’s throbbing;
But be not thine such grief as theirs,
To whom no hope is given—
Snatched from the world, its sins and snares,
Thy infant rests in heaven.”

--A Friend.
