ERNEST RICHMOND, second son of John G. and Rebecca S. COLBERT, died at Stilesboro, the 7th inst., in the sixteenth year of his age.  He had suffered long, but with exemplary patience and humble resignation, no murmur escaping him during his painful illness.  Having been trained from early infancy to place his trust upon a loving Savior, his whole life was a living illustration of Christian faith and Christian hope.  He seemed to be a natural Christian; kind, generous, charitable and affectionate, he won the esteem and confidence of all, in the various relations of life as son, brother, pupil and friend he was ever considerate and thoughtful of the happiness of others—the type of a noble hearted boy for calmly and gently he passed away without a groan and without a struggle.

“So fades a summer cloud away;
So sinks the gale when storms are o’er;
So gently shuts the eye of day,
So dies a wave along the shore.”
