Death of Gon. Howoil Cobb,
It was with feelings of deepest re
gret that we read tho annexed tele
graphic dispatch, announcing the death
of Gon’l liowoll Cobb,'one of Georgia’s
most gifted and honored sons.
• From our earliest childhood wo lmvo
known Gen’l Cobb. Ho resided In
Athens, Georgia, tho greater portion
of. his eventful and useful life, wliero
wo wore born and lived until our
twentieth year, and wo can say with
truth, 'which every one who knew him
can attest, that a hinder, nobler heart
ed man never lived. Though culled
to occupy- many positions of honor
\nnd trust by his State and -country
l " -oWcness of his bond and heart
by that petty
i f „ „^k)lents °f world
ly fume. Iio was ompi,..,
man—“ groat in Ills impuls
his friendships, and great
otlsm." As member of. Congress, til
Speaker of tho llouso of lleprosonta'
tives, as H-—i;MiiTr" Secretary of tho
U. S. Treasury, ho clearly evinced, by
tho distinguished ability willi wliioh
ho discharged tiio responsible duties
of those sovornl positions of trust, that
his miml was one of no ooniman mould.
But ho isgouol—and that, too, nt a
time whon his natlvp jjontli, which ho
loved so well, needed most tho coun
sels, aid and gnldnhoe of his great
miud. Most deeply and sincerely do
wo sympathize with the family of the
departed statesman and patriot in tills
sad dispensation of Providence.

tho superb background of our purplo

throng of citizens nt tho Court-House,

Sabbath Schools had already assem

badges of unfading green, tier after
