In Cassville, on the 20th inst., WILLIAM ALEXANDER, youngest child of J. D. and E. G. CARPENTER, aged 14 months and 15 days.

When sad disappointment hath wounded the soul,
And tears of repentance unceasingly roll—
Oh, where midst the mountains, or vales may we roam,
And find free from sorrow—a peaceful sweet home;
Home, home, sweet, sweet home,
To a heart in distress, there is no place like home.

Can we there in such solitude, find a lone spot,
Where the smile of false friendship, ne’er blasted the cot,
Oh, may we not hope, while poor mortals we roam.
To find such a rest, such a dear peaceful home.
Home, home, &c.
There’s not on this wide earth so peaceful a home.

Oh no, even there disappointment must come,
The sweetest and fairest are born for the tomb,
And the one we love best, in life’s earliest bloom,
Is often the first called to Heaven, its home.
Home, home, &c.
Oh, may we too, seek in Heaven a home.
