/Ac. 21, 1872. LADIES' COMMITTEE.
Christinas passed off very pleasantly
and quietly, here in town, and we have
no doubt but this season of opening the
hearts and purses of all has borne its
usual good fruits. The youngsters have
had their full enjoyment over the con
tents of their stockings, and the older
ones have enjoyed themselves in the
light of the merry hearts around them.
But now we turn our thoughts to the
NEW YEAR. What of joy or sorrow
does it bear on its wings for you, dear
reader? What of trials, struggles, tem
tations, or victory will it bring to each
of us? Let us look all the more closely
to the untrodden pathway of the future,
that we may not look back mournfully
at this year as we, so many of us, must
look on the year that has past. Let us
make the single determination to DC
RIGHT, and then bend every energy to
enable us to keep the resolution.
We have received the semi-weekly
Olean Times , and are glad to notice
that our neighbors are in so prosperous
a condition that it should seem to he de
manded. We hojie the enterprise will
prove a success and that the Semi-week
lv will soon be crowded out by a Daily.
The Literary Meetings are deserving
of more attention than they have re
ceived up to this time. There is always
something of interest in its exercises—
those of last meeting were unusually in
teresting; the next promises to be equal
ly so, and we urge a general attendance
of our citizens. A village without a
well attended literary meeting during
I the winter season is behind the times,
and needs shaking up. The Coudersport
Literary Society meets every Monday
evening in the basement of the Metho
dist church at seven o'clock. Come and
help make these meetings more profit
able. The pajier of the Society—made
up of original articles by the members—
will be read next Monday evening, ques
tions that have been assigned will he
answered, and the following question
will be discussed:

System ought to be so amended as to en

On the 23d of Peer., at her residence in Lewisville,
Mrs. Miriam Monroe, aged 70years.
Mrs. Monroe was one of the pioneers in the
north part of this County, having settled in Bing
ham township about fortv-flve years ago in the
midst of an unbroken wilderness. Her late hus
band, Ashabel Monroe, who was one of the best
known citizens of the County, was largely indebt
ed to her prudent management for the fine pro
perty he amassed and for the influential position
he occupied in society. She was a woman of
great energy and good sense, most exemplary
character and exerted a wide influence always
on the right side.

Our viJlot pure we laid away.
Within the dark, dark ground to-day;
Her earthly beauty must decay.
And we must ''kiss the roil."

Transplanted far oeyond the skies,

Shines in the light of God. SARAH.
At a regular convocation of Electa Ch iter, No.
4, of Adaptive Masonrv, of the Order o: the East
ern star, held at their Ilall in Oswayo, Pa., Dec.
21,18V2, a series of resolutions sympathizing with
the family and friends, and expressing their loss,
The funeral sermon, (which was preached by
Rev. J. W. Ray, of Wellsville, N. Y.,) closed with
the following words:
The deceased, Lueretla E. Lyman, was born in
Washington county, N. Y., where her parents
learned to love the Episcopal church, and in wlijch
she ami the rest of the children were early bap
tized. This daughter's faith was in the church, in
which she would have been a communicant had
she lived where our church had regular service.
As a daughter she was affectionate, and though
finding a welcome home while teaching in the
family of her sister, yet, when her health became
feeble, her heart was in her father's house, and
the aged parent's heart toward her—where they
might be the ones to minister to her in the love
next to His "who tempers the wind to the shorn
lamb." it was the beautiful fulfilment of the last
verse in the Old Testament, where it says, the new
dispensation shall see "the hearts of the fathers
turned towards the children, and the hearts of the
children towards the fathers." Her brothers and
sisters, too, were in her heart, as she in theirs; and
only the day before her death, when her brother
asked if his watch had heen wound up, she said,
pleasantly, "No, but I will wind it for you," and
that, too, when the wheel within a wheel in her
body, was so near run down that she could not
wind the watch any more than she could wind up
her own heart anil pulse. 1 Infer from all I can
hear that she was a young woman of education
anil industry, anxious to do something for herself
and family, and to help the children of the town—
even the poorest—to an education. He,nce she be
came a member of that great and well deserving
profession of teachers—where perhaps by too
great devotion to her work she injured her health
and became, as it were, one more of "the noble
army of martyrs." Her pupils are among the
most sincere mourners of all who will weep over
this dear departed one. During her long and se
vere illness, she has had full time to test her heart
and hope, and yet she has been resigned and calm,
and even desiring the wings of the dove to be
stretched upward. Her pains were not m neat
but she was superior to their strength, and wished
to go; and that last night, when she was going,
" They watched her breathing through the night.
Her breathing soft and low—
As in her breast the wave of life,
Kept heaving to and fro —
Their very fears their hopes deceived
Their hopes their fears belied
Tliey thought her dying when she slept.
And sleeping when she died'."
then her end was so peaceful that the wings were
given her unseen by mortals and she cut her shin
ing way aloft where the wings are indeed "the
wings of a dove covered with silver, and her
feathers of yellow gold." Happy spirit I and hap
py all her friends who look towards the sky where
they saw her go, as the dove from Noah's' ark, to
come back to this wicked world no more. May we
all realize that our dearest frieuds are within the
veil, and say to us " come up hither, coiue up

Arthur, youngest child of JOHN and DOHA
DUEL, aged 17 months.
As the sweet flower that scents the morn
But withers in the rising day,
Thus lovely was this infant's dawn.
Thus swiftly passed his life away.
It died ere its expanding soul
Had burned with wrong desires;
Had ever spurned at Heaven's control,
< >r quenched its sacred fires.
He died to sin—lie died to care—
But for a moment felt the rod •
Then, rising on the viewless air.
Spread his light wings and soared to God.
