The Late Jfrs'. Philo White.
The late Mr. Nancy R. White, use Hamp
ton, was born at Salisbury, N. U, on the 2d of
September, 1802, and was married to Philo
White, (born in Whitestown, N. Y.) the 9th
of May, 122, he bein then editor of the
Western Caroliniun, at SalUbury. Her father
was one of the numerous farailitwof Hamptons
in both Carolina., and her mother was a daugh
ter of Colonel James Brandon, commander of
the Firal Regiment of the North Carolina Lir.e
of Continental Regular, who aided in success
fully fighting the battle of liberty all through
our nation's heroic struggle for independence,
in- 1776. ;-With this lineage of Scutcli-lriah
Presbyterian blood ehe was nurtured and edu
cated in the rigid religious morality character
istic of lhat persuasion , of Christian!; conse
quently, during the whole course of her mature
life, a never-foiling devotion to the strictest re
ligious observances marked her daily walk.
On her removal with her husband to the
State f Wisconsin, where he attained many
prominent positions, legislative and otherwise,
they both attached themselves to the Protest
ant Episcopal Church there, her husband hav
ing been, as a lay delegate in the primary con
vention, an active lay assitant and patron,
along with the eminent Missionary, Bishop
Kemper, in founding the Church aiut Diocese
of Wisconsin. Both having been continued by
Bishop Kemper, as members of that Church,
they both contributed their time and their
humble means in building up the Church in
that new State. On thus changing (in 1S45)
their religious associations, Mrs. White espe
cailly engaged with renewed seal in the exten
sion of Christ's Kingdom, employing nearly all
her working hours in laboring for the benefit
of the then new Church of St. Luke's in Racine,
where she and her husband donated a rectory
(or parsonage) to the parish, while he was one
of the earliest and liberal founders and patrons
of Racine College in that town,
Mr. White having been deputed as a Diplo
matic Agent of the Government abroad, first,
as Consul General to the Free Hauseatic Cities
of Hamburg, Lubec and Altona, Mrs. While,
in the midst of a world of fashionable gaieties
that surrounded her, never swerved from the
rigid religious morality in which she was rear
ed and educated, persistently declining lb dese
crate the Sabbath by mingling in diplomatic
festivities on that holy day, which the world
thought that official position might persuade
her to attend.
Subsequently! Mr. White having been com
missioned as United States Minister Resident
at Quito, in the Republic of Ecuador, Mrs.
White accompanied her husband thither in
1853. More important functions, and broader
and more delicate responsibilities devolved up
on him and his family in that position than
they had hitherto been accustomed to demand
ing, in accordance with diplomatic courtesy, a
yielding of home-prepossessions to the require
ments of international usuage?, &c. But Mrs.
White was proof against all blandishments and
temptations by which it was sought to overcome
her prejudice Xi's they termed it) against ming
ling in innocent festivities on the Sabbath day.
When it was found that she was unyielding and
persistent in her non-atlendar.ce ou such cea
sions whenever thev occurred on Stinthivs,
a member of the Diplomatic Corps of hiyli
grade suggested a change of the Sunday festi
vals to Thursday evenings wltereupon the
Government officials and the leaders of the
beau-uionde adopted that suggestion as a rule ;
and the presence of the entire family of the rep
resentative of the great Northern Republic was
thereafter welcomed to all the diplomatic festi
vals at the capital, and Mrs. White was ap
plauded and congratulated by all right-minded
people, for her triumph in behalf of her moral
and religious convictions.
On Mr. White's repeated applications to be
relieved from that mission, after an official res
idence of five years at Quito, he and his family
returned home, and took up their residence in
his native town. Whitestown, in 1H5D. And
during the intervening nineteen years, not only
the citizens of the couimimily of their residence,
but of the city of Utica and the entire county,
and of the diocese as well, are living witnesses
of the generous philanthropy of both in lend
ing their aid on ail occasions for the advance
ment of the cause of religion and morality, and
for the well-being and material prosperity of
the community at ltrge. And more especially
can they testify to the ceaseless personal devo
tion of Mrs. While to all feasible measures of
benevolence, being ever tireless in her efforts
and her anexieties for extending the borders of
Zion at large, and in her labors and counsels
in building up the church of her love in
Her remains have been encased in an air
tight metalic casket, for transmission to her na
tive town of Salisbury, N. C, tor interment in
Oak Grove Cemetery, whose kindly soil will
afford them a final depository on earth, along
side the mortal remains of her children, her
parents and her kindred.
The funeral exercises were held on Sunday,
the 2d inst., at Whitesboro, in the Presbyterian
Church edifice, which had ben kindly offered
for that purpose, and which was thronged with
sympathetic and sorrowing people of the place,
who had long known the excellence of the de

tor of the parish, Rev. Mr. Mathison, and an
address delivered by Rev. Dr. Gibson, of Utica,
who also read the committal service over the

I do not propose to give a biographical
sketch, of the life of my distinguished col
leagne. That duty will be fully perform
ed on another and a more fitting occasion.
All that is necessary or appropriate, at
present, is a reasonable recognition of his
worth and a wise improvement of the sad
event which gives character to these ex
ercises. It is eminently proper that an
annual Conference, receiving the solemn
informataion, during its session, should,
in some way, commemorate, however in
adequately, the character of a general
superintendent of the church, and espe
cially of one who has rendered himself
illustrious in its service. Such a tribute
is due to exalted nierit, on the one hand,
and to the high relation which he sus
tained to a large and prosperous denomi
nation of christians on the other. Above
all, it is due to that grace which bestow
ed so rich a gift upon his church; In hon
oriug his memory, we glorify God. In
virtues, wo improve our
1. Bishop Marvin was comparatively
unknown to Southern Methodism until
his election to the Episcopacy in the year
18GG. Ho was however well known to
Methodism in Missouri and in Texas, and
stood pre-eminent, in that' sphere, as a
man of original jower and dauntless zeal,
is a preacher. It was that knowledge
which induced the Trans-Mississippi dele
gations in the General Conference, though
not a member of it, to present his claims
as their first Bishop. The result has fully
ustified the wisdom- of their selection
and the action of the General Conference.
2. He was one of those remarkable in
stances which have signalized aHd adorn-
ed the itenerant system, liaised in hu
man life, on the tbeu frontier of Western
iyangelizationy and trained by its foster-
are, he burst forth as a star of the
first magnitude and gradually ascended
to meridian altitude and splendor, vith
out those advantages since so accessible
3. The salient point of his subseqneut
career was in his investiture with the
Episcopacy. It placed him in a position
which gave scope and stimulus to his
abilities and his zeal. His latent ener
gies seemed, as it were, to await the op
portunity, for which lie was designed. It
was the summit .level from which the
eagle made his gaze and took his flight,
after trying his pinions, for awhile, finally
made the circuit of the world.
4. His intellectual capacity was pro
jected on a scale of commanding compass.
It possessed unusual breadth and penetra
tion. It could grapple with the great ques
tions of theology and philosophy and was
fond of metaphysical speculations, in which
he occassionally indulged. He could have
distinguished himself in the field of
analytic enquiry, had he devoted himself
to its abstractions. But he was too
practical to follow its fascinations.
5. As a preacher, he took rauk in the
highest grade amongst us, by the gener
alization of the doctrinal positions, the
fertility and originality of his conceptions,
and the copiousness aud wealth of his
diction. To this, were added the depth and
soundness of his religious views, and the
unction and the pathos and transport
of mauy of his discourses. Like all preach
ers, he was sometimes unequal, and did
himself injustice, if I may say so, by un
remitting toil. He was indefatigable as
a preacher. He coveted the pleasure, aud
seemed never to lose an opportunity to
proclaim, the gospel. I am persuaded
that he often transcended the limits of
human prudence, in this respect, consider
ing his value to the cause of God. The zeal
of the Lord's house literally consumed
him. I am sure he never regretted it.
We are the mourners j not he.
6. He displayed all the requisite traits
of an effective Bishop. He was wise and
prompt and clear in his administration,
affectionate and firm in his decisions and
self sacrificing in his labors. He counted
not his life dear ttuto himself. He was a
bright example of activity and fidelity to
the preachers over whom he presided ;
honored, beloved,- aud admired by the
whole connection as one of its chief pas
tors. 7. The most conspicuous of all his ef
forts were his mission to China and his
tour around the world. The General
Conference in Louisville required one of
the Bishops to visit that distant region in
order to organ rze the work and ordain the
native preachers and give assurance of
our interest in the prosperity of the Mis
sion. The lot fell on Bishop Marvin, by
election of his colleagues. He fulfilled
his errand completely, give a new impulse
to the enterprise at home and abroad, and
had the honor of being the first Bishop of
the M. E. Church, South, in a foreign
land. Next in importance to these events,
was his visit to the British Conference iu
Bristol, where he was received by the
Mother Confe-rencc of us all and re pre
sented the M. E. Church, South, accurate-
J ly and eloquently in the Jjllctropolis of
Methodism in the world. This official
recognition was the link that completed
the brilliant circle of Methodistic success
and Methodistic unity; and in that posi
tion his name will ever stand.
8. He wits a prolific aud instructive'writ
er. His pen was scarcely less ready than
his tongue. He wrote spontaneously, and
not by constraint, and with a freedom and
vivacity that charmed bis readers. He
was the author of several volumes, was
selected by the family of Bishop Andrew
to write his life a work which, I pre
sume he did not live to accomplish. The
most memorable productions of his pen
were his letters from the East, in which
he displayed an extraordinary maturity
in epistolary literature. He imparted
valuabfc iufomation to the Church, and
stirred its very depths ou the subject of
foreign Missions. Had he done nothing
else, this would have been an achieve
ment worthy of his fame. The effect will
long survive him, in enlarging the views
and awakening the enthusiasm of the
Church on the wide theatre of the world's
salvation. They were almost universally
read with delight. Their publication, in
a volume, was demanded, and he was
concluding the pages when his useful pen
dropped forever from a hand smitten with
the stroke of death. That volume will
remain as a consecrated memorial of his
life's last labors in the cause of Christ.
V. After the vicissitudes and perils of a
journey of 25(XJ0 miles, accomplished in
10 mouths, and with the honors of a ful
filled commission, he returned to his na
tive land and his loved home with such
advantages, to resume his Episcopal func
tions among an admiring people, filled
with the joyous expectation of renewing
his rou nils of duty, and rejoining his col
leagues in their designated work. Alas,
for human calculations ! We know not
what a day may bring forth. Four months
only were added to his return. Xo pre
mature decline no - premonitary signals
indicated the catastrophe. In the midst
of his labors, in. the prime of his manhood,
standing on the grand climacteric of his
life, in the pleutitnde of his vigor, he was
arrested by disease, and one short week
terminated his earthly career. Bishop
Enoch M. Marvin is actually dead! He
rests from his labors, and his works do
follow him. The shock of his death still
repeats its melancholy ecbqes amongst
10V According to human estimate, his
death is an incalculable loss to Southern
Methodism. Let us not so interpret it.
The life and death of such a mat! are both
a gain to the cause of God. His work
was done, and God took him, and left the
result to us. His death was a gain to
himself, lie was ready. The. Master
culled, and he oleyed. He had kept the
commandments; he has tested his right to
the tree of life, aud has entered through j
the gates into the city, a city which hath
foundations whose maker and builder is
God. May we all follow him as he fol
fowed Christ ; then every earthly loss will
be indemnified by eternal compensations.
For the Watchman.
SHADOW AND SUBSTANCE.
We have loved and we have parted,
That bright dream is in the past;
Yet I am Hot loroken-hearted,
Life is not all overcast.
True, the future gives no promise,
, That the star of love shall rise,
Gleaming with its olden radiance,
In the future's clonded skies.
Hope the flatterer long has left me,
She who lingers to the last;
Yet my heart repeats not sadly,
It is over, it is past!
It is past! for me no longer,
Shall life'n f nigra 11 1 blossoms bloom;
Those I gathered long since faded,
Long since lost their sweet perfume.
Yet I love that star which lighted
For a while, my life's young sky,
And I bless those fiowers'though blighted,
That around me withered lie.
It is past, but I am grateful,
For the wild bewildering draught;
Now I fliug aside the chalice,
All whoso waters I have quaffed.
Onward now I press, preceiving
That love is not all of life,
And with heart and soul undaunted,
Haste to join life's din and strife.
I have taken up my burden,
Which I shrunk from. far too long;
Labor leads to life eternal,
Is my battle cry and song.
God has given living waters,
That has made my thirst to cease;
Over rough ways he has led me
To the path of perfect peace.

In our style of climate, with its sudden

lected colds, half the deaths resulting directly
from this cause. A bottle of Bosehee's German
Syrup kepi about yoar home for immediate use
will prevent serious sickness, a large doctor
bill and perhaps death, by the use of three or
four doses. For curing Consumption, Hemor
