Oct 12, 1843
In this place after a long and distressing illness, Mrs. Olivia, wife of
Strong BURNELL, aged 33. The deceased was a worthy member of the
Congregational Church in this place since its formation. As a wife and
mother she was faithful and affectionate, as a friend, kind and true, always
ready to sympathize with the needy and distressed. During a protracted
illness about eight months since, which she bore with christian resignation,
she was very happy in the prospect of death. Though she unexpectedly
recovered, yet she ever after felt, and in a happy degree acted as though
she was near the grave. During her last sickness she manifested an humble
submission to the will of God, and of ten joined in the sentiment while at
her request was sung the sweet hymn,
Jersusalem my happy home;
A few hours before she died after breathing out a humble fervent prayer, she
expressed a perfect willingness to go and be with Christ and left her
friends the pleasing reflection that their loss is her infinite gain.
At his residence in this place, on the 2d instant, at 7 o'clock P.M., Asa
GREEN, Esq., formerly of Brattleborough, Vermont, in his 58th year after an
illness of somewhat more than three weeks. His illness he bore with
Christian meekness and patience; and when in the course of it, alarming
symptoms developed themselves, his self-possession and composure remained
undisturbed. He constantly professed his sole reliance to be, on the merits
of Christ his Savior- his sole wish to be, that he might glorify God either
by his life, or his death, as He might see fit to appoint- and all his
desire, that God would dispose of him according to his good pleasure. He
died in peace and almost without a struggle.
DESTITUTION IN IRELAND
Bishop Hughes says he is glad to escape from the wretchedness and want and
physical suffering which surrounded him every where in Ireland. He adds,
"that it is not only beggars who are poor and destitute; those who would
fain gain something by work can hardly do so. Look at yon old woman sitting
down in the market place of town; she has come five miles on foot with her
produce for sale, and what is it? Two eggs! On my credit; two eggs and
nothing in the world beside; perhaps she will get two pennies (four cents)
and wend her way five miles home to her hut, to wait till her single hen
shall lay more."
What unmitigated wretchedness! No wonder that the Irish who reach this
country and find shelter in a log cabin, and enough to eat, coarse though it
may be, and clothing sufficient, though homely in its texture,
enthusiastically call this a blessed country.

room wehre the fatehr and eldest son lay sick. The most perfect resignation
reigned throughout the family. It was a christian family and instead of
giving themselves up to grief, the mother and eldest daughter were
ministering to the wants of the sick, while the three younger members of the
family were making themselves useful about the house. Mr. TODD , was brother
