“Little Grace,” infant daughter of Mr. John and Mrs. Sallie Coxe, died, in this place, on Monday night last, after a protracted and severe illness.

“Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”—Jesus

“This little bud adorned our bower,
And spread sweet fragrance ‘round;
She grew in beauty, hour by hour,
‘Til, ah! The spoiler came in power,
And crushed her to the ground.

“But not forever in the dust,
Her beauteous form shall lie;
But in the garden of the just,
‘Neath God’s righteous eye, we trust,
She will bloom again on high.”
