She leaves a husband, two sons and five daughters to mourn the loss of a good wife and affectionate mother, though we feel confident that our loss is her gain.

A Son in the Army Killed, by a deserter, in the northern part of this (Cumberland) county, on the 20th inst., Daniel Jas. Colvin, in the 47th year of his age. All the circumstances of this lamentable event are most sad and painful. Mr. Colvin was a most excellent and worthy man in every relation of life, a high minded and honorable gentleman, a pure patriot, devoted to the cause of his bleeding and suffering country. On the day of his lamented death, it is supposed he fell a victim of hatred and revenge, as he was a member of the Home Guard which made him an object of dread and hatred to the lawless and deserters around him. He and two others were sent to guard a certain point, when two deserters approached within some twenty paces before either party discovered the other. At the word halt, both parties fired their guns and all by Mr. Colvin, who was shot and instantly died. Mr. Colvin, though not a professor of religion, was a man of unblemished character, exemplary in all his walk. He leaves a bereaved wife and two small children. Married, on the 28th Jan., by Rev.

He was descended from one of the oldest and most respectable families on the Cape Fear, and in this section of the state was known as a high-toned, honorable gentleman. Journal Died, in Randolph Co., N.C., Jan. 10(?), of disease of the lungs, Emsley Lassiter, in the 56th year of his age. He was greatly affected from his youth, having been made in very early childhood a cripple for life, but notwithstanding his inability to get about as other men, yet he was a very useful, energetic, honest, kind hearted man, and much liked by all who knew him. He made a profession of religion in his 17th year and attached himself to the M.E. Church South, since which time he has ever been an orderly and consistent member of the same. Though he had many sore trials yet he patiently endured them all. About 14 years ago his good and estimable wife died, leaving five children who looked upon him for their future training and well did he accomplish this. When our struggle for liberty commenced his two eldest sons volunteered and went forth with their father’s approval, to battle for our rights. He wrote them often, always kindly and wisely advising and encouraging them in the cause. But death came and snatched for its victim his youngest son Jonathan while in came at Evansport(?), Va. His older son who was then in camp at Raleigh went, and with much difficulty, brought home the remains of the deceased brother to be interred in the family burying ground. On the 4th September, he was again bereft of his kind and dutiful daughter, Mrs. M.A. Luther, who died at Ft. Anderson, while there on a visit to her husband, who was in the service of his country. During his last illness, which was of the most aggravating character and which lasted within a few hours of five days, he was never in a single instance heard to murmur. He sent a last kind message to his son, who was far from his dear home on the tented fields of northern Virginia, saying “tell him to continue to be a good, dutiful son as he always has been, and tell him to still be faithful in the discharge of his Christian duties and meet me in heaven.” Died, on the 31st Jan., in Forsythe Co., James Francis, only child of Mr. and Mrs. J.A.

Haughton, Esq., and daughter of the late Col. Thomas Hill, aged 61. The writer of this was intimately acquainted with the deceased having been for some time an inmate of her house, and a member of her family. He knew her in all the relations of wife, mother, and friend—and knowing her, would do injustice to his own feelings and to his appreciation of her virtues if her life and character did not receive from lips more than a passing notice. She was a “stayer at home”, industrious and careful in the management of her domestic affairs, hospitable and kind. No lady presided at her table with more grace and dignity. She was blessed with a large family of children and the pains she took to instill into their minds correct principles and pure thoughts, that she might make them useful as well as ornamental members of society, was worthy of all praise. In the last letter she wrote to one of her sons in the army, after telling him of her disappointment in not seeing him at Christmas, she added: “but I would not have you, my son, to think that I am not willing for you to be in the army when your country needs your service”. Although their comfort was her care, their absence from home her great grief, she was willing if need by to give them up and made it her pleasure to encourage them to the cheerful performance of their duty. She had lived with her daughter 27 years, and through all that time, she was the same modest, truthful, loving Christian wife. Her death was very sudden, the messenger came when no one expected him; she had no time to bid farewell to the loved ones who surrounded her. M. Eliza Leanora, youngest daughter of Barret(?) and Marinda Wood, departed this life of typhoid pneumonia on the 24th Jan. Leanora was in her tenth year when her summons came. She was a child of sprightly disposition, sweet temper and of fine and delicate sensibilities. So fine were her feelings that even a word or look that seemed to carry with it displeasure would cause a flood of tears to spring from her eyes; seeming almost to rend her tender heart. It was her highest ambition and greatest joy to please her parents, relations and playmates, and to displease them was her keenest remorse. Her many rare qualities made her the idol of her family.

Chaffin Martha L. Jones departed this life Nov. 1, 1863 aged 14 years, 2 months. She seemed reconciled to death and appeared resigned to the will of God. She was afflicted during the last 5 months of her life; during the time of her illness she often called her mother to her bed and said “Mother, meet me in Heaven and do not grieve for me for I am willing to die at any time.” Though her body was racked with pain, she could rejoice and praise God for what He had done for her soul. The deceased has left a greatly bereaved mother and three sisters, teachers and school mates, that doted on her as she was a great favorite with all who knew her.

Died, in Newbern on the 11th inst., Edward Graham, Esq., aged about 73(?) years. It is with deep and heartfelt sorrow that we record the death of John McKinnon. This sad event took place at this residence in Marlboro’ District on the 17th ult., in the 32nd year of his age. The subject of this brief notice was a young man of considerable promise. Enjoying the advantages of a liberal education, and deeply imbued with the Spirit of piety, he bid fair to be very useful both in the church and in society. But alas! He is cut down in the morning of life, when we could ill spare him in the church to which he belonged. Early in life, before reaching the age of manhood, Mr. McKinnon made a profession of religion which he adorned by a course of consistent conduct until the day of his death. Soon after graduating, he came to Marlboro’ District, S.C., where he taught school for a few years. Here he married and settled permanently. Having changed his membership from Lumber Bridge Church to the Red Bluff Church, he soon became a ruling elder and served with fidelity and acceptance till death. H.M.B.
