Death of Mrs. John A. Erwin.

“Another loved spirit has been called from earth to Heaven.”

It is with feelings of deep regret that we announce the death, on Friday last, of that estimable lady, Mrs. JANE E. ERWIN, consort of John A. Erwin, of Cartersville.

She was the daughter of Hon. John W. Hooper of this place.  Mrs. E. resided among us for several years, and endeared herself to all with whom she mingled.—Quiet, and of an unobtrusive nature, she was little known beyond the circle of friends who clustered around her for the many adorning traits of her character.  Early in life she was bereaved of her mother,--but she found consolation in religion, in the triumphs of which she sweetly breathed her last.  She has left an affectionate husband, four children and large circle of friends and relations to mourn her death.  But their loss is her eternal gain.  For—
“Far happier thou!  ‘twas thine to soar,
Careering on the winged wind.
Thy triumphs, who shall dare explore?
Suns and their systems left behind.
No track of space, no distant star,
No shock of elements at war
Could thee detain.  The band of angels
Bore thee amidst the cherub-choir;
And there awhile to thee ’twas given
Once more that voice beloved to join
Which taught thee first a flight divine,
And nursed thy infant years with many
A strain from Heaven.”
