At Port Sarnia, upon the River St. Clair, Canada, opposite Port Gratiot,

a native of Pittsford, N. Y., aged 33 years.
He had lived several years in Michigan, but came to this place to work upon
the new road. He was fortunately in the employ of Mr. Orin DAVENPORT, who when
he was seized with inflammation, had him brought to his own house, medical attendance
procured, and during his illness of six weeks he received from Mrs. DAVENPORT
constantly the care tenderness and sympathy of a sister. He was visiting frequently
by the friends of Mr. DAVENPORT, and 6 or 7 of these were present at his death.
He was a man who had been trained in the way he should go, but care and anxiety
had engrossed his mind, but true to the declarations of scripture, when he was
on his bed of death he departed not from the truth, but expressed the liveliest
hopes in the mercy of God in Christ Jesus. He requested others to pray and read
scripture to him and he prayed fervently himself, and his end was perfect peace.
His funeral was large and respectable, and an Elder of the Presbyterian Church
prayed at the grave, and afterwards in the church a hymn the 226th on the 438th
page of Watts, beginning "Lord in thy temple we appear," was sung
according to a request he had made shortly before his death.
Mrs. DEAVENPORT'S kindness and attention should never be forgotten by his
friends, as it flowed from the purest benevolence, no provision nor hope of
remuneration having been made or ever expected from the poor and helpless stranger.
May the God who seeth in secret reward her openly.
A Friend to Humanity.
