gives tlie following account of the death of
Kkv. John Van Clkve, D. D., the father
... of the editor oi the Register, in the city
of New York, on the eveuing of December
Rev. John Van Cleye. D. D., of the
Southern IUinoise Conference, died In this
city on Tuesday evening of last week, Dec.
7. IIs was a member of the General Mis
sionary Committee, and came to this city,
accompanied by his wife, in time for the
lalo session, which began Nov. 10. He
was present but a single day, alter which a
most distressing maladv confined him to
the house, and for the mo&t part to his bed.
He was the guest of Gilbert Oakley, Esq.,
who, with the family, were unremitting in
13 attentions to the venerable sufferer..
By the morning of the seventeenth his diss,
ease had put on an alarming aspect, and
no ordinary instrumentality : could give
relief. The attending physician, as the
- only hope ot saving his lite, required that
he should at once be removed to St. Luke's
Hospital, so that sufficient surgical aid
could be had and the attendance of skilled
nurses secured. Dr. Keid, one of the
Missionary Secretaries, accordingly made
arrangements, and lie was conveyed there
in a carriage. In the course of the day
relief was found, but it was only of brief
duration. The disease raged on till it de
prived him ot lite. ,
He evidently anticipated a fatal termina
tion, and spoke of it with composure. As
the time approached he sank into a stupor,
from which he never roused, and may em
phatically be said to have fallen asleep in
Bishop Janes and Dr. Keid conducted
funeral services at the hospital, in presence
of Dr. Nelson and several city pastors and
friends. Dr. Dnsliiell had not yet returned
from North New York. The remains, ac
companied by his widow and grandson,
were taken on the evening train (Pennsyl
vania Railroad) of December 8. for his
home in Carlisle, 111. nc is to be interred
At the hospital tie bad a pleasant room,
and the best medical and other attendance,
and his wife spent each day with Iter afflict
ed husband. To the officers of the institu
tion a debt of gratitude is due - tor their
many kind attentions.
Father was in his seventy-second year,
and had been connected with the M. ,13.
Church for more than sixty years. For
over half a century he had preached ;a.
greater portion of the time in Illinois) tlie
.unsearchable riches of Christ, and when
death called him he was engaged in the
work of his Master, having been appointed
by the last Illinois Annual Conference to
the charge at Carlisle, Ills. After so long
a period devoted to preaching the Word
and faithfully working for the Master, he
goes to his reward, without spot or blemish
to tarnish his fair name, known and loved
by hosts of people for his great charity,
deep piety, faithfulness in the discharge of
- all his duties as a christian and 'a citizen,
and the nobleness of soul which character
ized his every act and deed. . He died poor
indeed in this world's goods, but he leaves
legacy of far more worth to his - children
but two of whom are left to keep sacred
liis memory than diamonds or gold; a
