the Purccll House and favored us with!
a short visit mis morning.
Mr. .Tubus Samson arrived here on
last Saturday night from New Yorlt
and will spend several months here, not
returning North until the Spring. He
is looking very well and time does not
seem to have dealt harshly with him of
late years. Mr. Samson is now, with
one exception. the oldest merchant doing
business in Wilmington. His honse
was first established in 1&13, just 41
years ago. and is, we believe, the oldest
mercantile house in Wilmington.
A Sad Monday.
j This has been a sad Monday to many
of our citizens, for between the setting
and the rising of the sun two gentle
souls have left their tenements of; clay
behind to be clothed upon with
the spotless garments of righteous
ness and Immortality. One of these
left us in the course of nature, after a
long and a happy and a useful life and
sarroanded by her children and her
children's children. She left at the set
of the sun and when the pearly gates ot
day - again unclosed upon her it
was in a land where there is neither
night nor day but an eternal halo of
joye and glory and peace and righteous
And at 3 o'clock this morning another
soul passed over the river. It was a
joung soul and a pure soul which had
almost Inherited its righteousness of
life. The tenement was young and fair
and comely to look 1 upon, but the
Christian graces which illumined
the soul were much fairer than the shell
which enshrined it. She left the earth
when in its densest darkness, but the
light which broke upon her eyes when
sho unclosed them in Paradise wa3 far
brighter, in its heavenly illumination
than the night which enwrapped the
earth was gloomy in its darkness.
Altogether, the gloom and j sorrow
which have enshrouded so many hearts
to-day is not as deep and dense as
gloom and sorrow so often are. It is
of the earth, earthy, but thore is a light,
the light of Faith, which has pierced this
gloom and has sanctified this sorrow.
This faith looks beyond the grave and
has caught some glimpses cf the light
unspeakable which has shone from tho
gates of Paradise as they have unclosed
to admit thee two souls into that rest
which femai'ueth for the people ol God.
