Soutliet:. and Northern War Prisons.
In un article published in Delfurd'i

Jelferson Davis on "Audersonville and
Other Wur Prisons," he refutes the be
lief so ciiiiiiuoij in the .North thnt tho

that, on tho coiitrurv, neither the Buffer

It must bu conceded that tho North
ern stales uru inoio generally healthy
than tliu Southern. Then, with equal
melius mitl cure iu providing for tho

therefore that all weiu iu u cmidiliou to

tho result? According to tlio reports id

A FUNERAL DISCOURSE.
She Sleeps the Sleep of the Just, and her
Spirit It with Cod.
The following discourse was delivered
by lie v.J. .U. DjiiuLIsoii at tho hpisco
pal church on Saturday morning last,
tho occasion being tho lunural of .Miss
I desire tu say a few words us a tribute
of respect to this solemn occasion, and to
those who aro tlie most deeply Interested
Wo are met together in the boiisu of
Ood, for tho purpose of expressing our
sympathy with a sadly bereaved lumlly,
and taking part in (lie last religious ritet
over the earthly remains of an esteemed
member of our church, whom It has
pleased (iod, iu his all-wise but hi
scrutuhle providence, to tuke out of this
sinful, stillering world to Wis eternal
The solemnity of tho occasion Is such
as all must feel, and it is right wu should
feel it, and also gather from it a lesson
us to the uncertainty to ull, of this mor
tal Hie, and tho wisdom of eiulcavorinii
so to live daily, us we shall certainly
w ish we had uono when our lust (lay
"When the solemn death bell tolls
"For our departing souls."
It is as nutural lo die as to bo born,
and tlie one event necessarily involves
the other. Hut how different tlie feelings
which accompany these events ; tliu one
culling forth our highest joy, the other
our deepest sorrow !
Ami yet death is but tho birth of the
soul, and llm continuance of the life be
gun hero, in such condition ami rdmim
stances us this Ijfo has ipiulified it for.
The birth of the child, winch calls
forth our tendcrest love and joy, is
something wo can see ami know and un-
lorstund ; tint the second birth winch
wo call death is verv dilfurcut, mid here
wo must walk by fnith and not bv sighi.
To those wuo nre destitute of faith in
the future world, a revealed in holy
scripture, by lino who "brought life
ami immortality to light," death must
indeed ever be tlie king of terrors, and
the grave tho end of all hope. For such,
alas I thero is no comfort either in this
life or in tlie next, and the gloom of
fruitless despair is nil thut remains.
liut for those who can ut such a time
lean upon the blessed teaching of Him
who spake a never man spake, who
an believe that Uod is love and wis-
loni, that lie can do nothing unkind or
wrong; who can trust his all-wise provi
dence, ami believe thut all is ordered
lor the es(. to such death has Instils
sting and tho grave its cloom.
The heart will still mourn, the bo-
reitvod will still weep over their loved
and lost ones, for that is natural, but
they will sorrow, not ns those who have
no hope, but as thus who know and be
lieve the meaning of the trite but beau
tiful saying, "Not lost, but gone be
fore." Who would not wish at such a
1 1 mo as this, whstcrur, in different cir
cumstances, ho may have thought or
said to the contrary who would not, at
such a time as this, desire above all
things a fir ib hold of the Chrithn faith,
in regard both t tho departed and the
bereaved? Surely, without such faith
as this, life were iinwottliyof man's in
herent greatness and more than earthly
intelligence, and would be even at the
host hardly worth living and a doubtful
boon. But God. our heavenly Father,
lias completed His design in regard to
tlie crown and glory nf His creation, by
revealing lo us a future wotth striving
for, worth Imping for, wjrth dying for.
In that future life and immortality, made
known to us and Required for us by our
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, both
(iod and man, all our highest aspira
tions lind place nndsatishiction, ami the
nloryofJ.be future life sheds to tho be
liever iflinlo upon this.
Ami in regard lo those dear to us
whom God has called lo himself, how
pleasant it is to think of those points of
character, uud indications of goodness,
and virtue, ami piety, which rendered
the person lovable here ami fitted for a
place in tlie kingdom of heaven I In tlie
light of religion, still more than in tiie
light of natural affection, such qualities
are cherished and remembered.
Such it is and such it will he, in the
ease of our departed sister. To bu aide
to say ol such, that she was a good
daughter, s loving sister, a true friend,
a devout Christian, is the highest praise
that can be bestowed upon any human
be,iug. You, my friends, who best knew
the deceased, will, I believe, he the llrst
to bestow such a high tribute of praise
upon her memory. And withsuv.li kindlv,
loving thoughts, we resign her soul to
Ood, whilst we do all we can to honor
tlie visible but perishable part, which
still remnius with us.
Ami surely there is a voice which
speaks to us all at this solemn moment,
ami what the Voice says is this: "All
flesh is us grass ami ull the goodliiiess
thereof us tho flower of the Held ; the
grass witlierutM, i lie nower iinietii, nut
tint word ol Hie Lord eiiilureth lor ever.
Should not this thought of life's feeble.-
liens and death's iinuertuititv inspire in!
every Heart the prayer ol tlie I salmist.
"So teach us to nuujoer our days that
we may apply our hearts to wisdom?"
And thus living, and looking for our
own coming chanve, e shall possess our
souls iu Pt'uco, ami be aide with the
quiet contldeuce of the Psaltuist to say :
"though 1 pass through tlie valley
of the shadow of death I will feur no
evil, for Thou art w ith me." Yea, per
chance, we may be able to strike u
higher note, eveu a nolo of triumph, uud
say in the uoble language of the apostle,
whose words you bave just heard lead.
and wbo for himself counted death mil
gain: "Ob death, where is thy sting?
Oh grave, where is thy victory ? Thiinks
bo unto Ood who givuth the victory,
through our Lord Jesus Christ."
