Joel W, Sivain. 1875, De.accn N. B. Tyson. Brother Ty.son was born June 2Cth, i812, in the State of Tenne.s.see, and County of Montgomery. He joined the Primitive Bap tist Church at Blooming Grove (in the County and State of hia nativity) in 1829, and was baptized by Elder .Josiah Horne. He lived in the fellow.ship of said Chnreh until 1837, when he moved to Henry County, and joined Bam Fork Church, where he lived till 1848, when he moved to Arkansa.s, Ouachita Coun ty. Here he joined Bethesda Church, where he lived ’till 1865 when he emigrated to Texas, M'lam County, and joined New Providenee Church, of which be died a member. Brother Ty.son was made Deacon by Be thesda Church in Arkansas in 1860. He vras long the subject ©f this distressing dlsea,se —■Asthma, and of which he suffered much, but with great patience, Ilis aiaiable wlf©, to whom he was truly devoted, died April 20th, which was, as may be .seen, hut a .short time before his death. After her death he .seemed not only willing but anxious to de part. It seemed to he according to his de.sire, for at the time of her burial he was taken with the disease of which .she died—conges tion of the Liver, of which he died in about two week.s, and was buried by her side. The writer visited him during his illness and heard him expre.ss many of his thoughts and much of his feeling ou the su’oject of his life and death. A.fter hearing him speak of hirs iff family life, a.id e.speci- enler, or sorrow ever come. Hesolved, That we ext^'nd the sym pathies of the members of this Church to the afllicted relatives of the deceased, kau htah a copy of tiie.se resolutions be sent them, and that the same be pubh. .ied in Zion’s La.xd- aiarks. and also a blank page be in.s:crihed and dedicated to our honored brctlicr in our Church book, stating liis age and the number of ye;u-.s he served with the militant Church here behnv.

One side of her was paralyzed earl'v in the attack, and the second stroke caused lier sweet .spirit to leave its tenement of clay-; and far above she and lier clear grand-pa who went a few months before, d .g “.Redeem ing love.” It was heart-rending to her fcnc’ parents and others who loved her to see l.c;- suffer so much in her helpless coiiciitiou ; hut wm are taught thereby—what a great curse sin brought into the world. She was loaned to her parents one year, foiirmonth.s and twenty- two days—suflicient to .say she was innocent and winning in life, and lovely and beautiful in deatli. I would say to her brother and only sister who helped to nnrse her all lier life, and whose’ hearts seemed broken becau.se of her death “ Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth.” Her parents desire the prayers of the Lord’s people that the trial may prove a blessing to them. the change—death has no terrors for me ; but .solemn weight—an indescriKible I have feeling'. I know that if I am what I profess to be, it is not of me—it is all of grace. I feel that if I am not prepared to die I never will be. If I am changed I did not change myself; the Almighty did it, and if he did it it was done right.” Concerning his personal character and life, ho remarked: “I know that I have never done anything to merit favor, yet I have ever tried to be a law-abid ing man. I have been a member of the Church ever since I was seventeen years old, and have never been called to account for anything I have said or done. If I have dis honored the cause I do not know it. .Some people .say the Old Baptists believe what is to be will be a.ny now. They are ns far from being an any how people as any in the world,” &c. Here I remarked to brother Ty.son that 1 felt to be under many obliga- tios to him for his kindae.ss to me, to which he replied : “ 1 havm’dbhe nothing but what I felt that I ought to do. I ask no thanks But I want yon, my dear brother, to watch over my children when I am gone. Some of them would, I think, join the Chnreh but for certain hindrances. I want you to visit them and talk with them. There are no ties to hold me hero now, except my children, but I must tear loose from them too.” My sister once three darlings had A triplet that she loved tooGvell Resigned she feels she .scarce can he; Acs, since one’s suhIch she cannoi sec.

Sister Maey Tyson, consort of brother N. E. 'JTson, was born May 1st, 1814. She joined the Primitive Baptist Church about the year 1837, and died April 20th, 1875. It is due her memory to say of her that she was a kind and loving ivife .md mother, an earnest and devoted Christian—a mother in Israel. Brother and sister Tyson leave a large family of children, relatives, friends and brethren, to mourn, not their, but our Jos.s. May^God sanctify this di.sjiensation of Ilis providence to the good of all who are con cerned about it, and to the good of His cause. “ Bles.sed are the dead whicli die in tlio Lord from henceforth ; yea, s.aietli the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors ; and ' worxs ! them,” Rev. 14: 13.
