than any of the old towns about. We may judge
something of its activity, when it is said that, over 100

Lancaster, over $200,000 ; and Franklin Brickett,
$150,000, who have moved into the Franklin Block,

D. D. Mrs. C. was dau. of the late Rev. Jonathan
Strong, D. D. of Randolph, Mass. ; " and thus she
had the privilege of a pious parentage, and a faith-
ful Christian nurture in her early years. She gave
her heart to God in youth, and at the age of 15
years united with the church. Nov. 11, 1818, she
was married, and for several years resided in the
quiet parish of South Dedham. After Dr. Cogs-
well's appointment as Secretary of the American
Education Society, the family removed to Boston,
where they remained for several years ; subse-
quently, on his election as Professor in Dartmouth
College, they lived at Hanover, N. II. ; and finally
when he was appointed President of Gilmanton
Theological Seminary, they fixed their residence in
Gilmanton. Here Mrs. Cogswell was called to pass
under the shadows of mourning, by the loss of her
only son, in 1848, a promising young man who had
entered college, — and of her husband in 1850; but
in the calmness of her trust in God, she was enabled
to bear all. Here her life was passed in the quiet
of a Christian home, devoted to the care of her
daughters, who are left to mourn their great loss.
" Some of her prominent traits of character are
worthy of notice. One, was her peculiar refine-
ment and native delicacy of feeling. That feminine
grace which rests upon woman as a charm, was con-

stant and natural to her. Another trait was her
amiableness, which was especially manifest in a form
which leads in fact to another trait of character, her
family affection. Another lovely trait was her
Christian resignation, and the whole development
of her Christian character. Self-denial for Christ
was another trait in her character. The church
will feel the loss of her sanctified influence, and her
prayers." — Extracts from Puritan Recorder of

Goodhue, Mary, Lawrence, April 6, w. of Wad-

highly appreciated, and beloved by a large circle of
friends. To much intelligence and quickness of
perception she added a genial and social nature, and
a warm sympathy, that rendered her a favorite
among her friends. She was ever kind, gentle, pa-
tient and hopeful, and her sudden departure is a
great loss to her young family, as well as to her
many friends and relatives.

Greenleaf, Mary Elizabeth, dau. of the late

Greenleaf, Sam'l E., Esq., at his residence, the
family homestead, in the West Parish of Haverhill,
on the 9 th of March, 1857, aged 68. " Mr. Green-
leaf will be long remembered as a kind neighbor, a
worthy and upright citizen, a judicious counsellor,
a firm friend, and an affectionate husband and
father ; his departure is deeply felt ; but it was his
Christian character and example which lay at the
foundation of his other excellences, and which now
render his death so great a loss. He was an exem-
plary and devoted member of the church of Christ
for more than forty years, having at first joined the
Calvinistic Baptist church in the village, and after a
new and evangelical society was formed in his native
parish, he joined that church. He was eminently a
man of prayer ; he loved the Word of God. The
Sabbath school was his delight, and he never with-
held his presence and aid from it until, within a few
months, the hand of disease compelled him to leave
the sanctuary which he loved. Descending gently
to the grave, and retaining his mental powers to the
last, he showed, as he approached his end, the
ripened fruits of one who had walked with God.
His faith sustained him in the trying hour ; and
while the earth mourns his loss, he has gone, as we
believe, where mortality is swallowed up of life, and
faith is lost in vision."
Edmund Greenleaf, the ancestor, from whom Mr. G.
descended, was, it is believed, a descendant of the
Huguenots, who left France on account of their re-
ligious principles, and settled in England. Edmund
was born in the parish of Brixham, and county
of Devonshire, near Torbay, in England, about the
year 1600 ; married Sarah Dole, and had several
children born in England; came to Newbury, Mass.,
in 1635, and lived near Old Town Bridge, but after-
wards, about 1650, went to Boston, and died in
1671, leaving a very curious will which may be seen
in the Greenleaf genealogy, lately published in New
York by Jonathan Greenleaf, of Brooklyn, N. Y.,
from which book we make extracts. Among the
children of Edmund Greenleaf, were a dau. Judith,
who m. at the age of 16 Henry Somerby, by whom

Both father and son held the office of Sheriff of

New Hampshire in years now long gone. He held
several honorable and important public positions.
He was Marshal of New Hampshire during the
Presidential term which commenced with the inau-

died in early youth, and all the others lived beyond
the age which the Psalmist assigns for the limit of
manly life. Born in Boscawen before the Revolu-
tion, when the north part of that town was almost a
wilderness, he has seen this Republic in all its stages,
from infancy, to its now glorious manhood ; and
looked upon his generation till they have passed
away. In his private and business relations, he had
an acquaintance more extensive than usually hap-
pens to so humble a man ; and no one of that ac-
quaintance, we are confident, will withhold from
him the proudest of all earthly titles, that of an
honest man. — Statesman.

denly. The whole community has met with a very
serious loss. Possessed of sterling virtues, he was
universally respected and confided in for his firm-
ness, honesty, and skilfulness in his calling ; and
was esteemed and loved by all whose more intimate
knowledge of him made them acquainted with the
kindness of his heart, and his perfect guilelessness

and was of the firm of Whiton and March, import-
ing merchants ; but has of late been connected with
the B. C. and M. Railroad, and had acquired a de-
servedly good reputation as a careful and efficient
business man. His death is a serious loss to the
road, and a calamity to his family. His wife and
several children survive him. In early life he be-
came a member of the visible church. His remains
were carried to Boston, for interment in Mount Au-
burn Cemetery ; and the funeral was attended in

For the space left, after the foregoing, we cut the following from the American Messenger, entitled :
Bereavement and Consolation.
It is not in the parting hour, when those we fondly love
Have breathed to us their last farewell, and winged their way above ;
Nor yet, when in the darksome grave we lay them to their rest
The sharpest pang of sorrow rends the stricken mourner's breast.
'T is when we seek our lonely home, and meet no more the smilo
Which could the darkest cloud dispel, and every care beguile ;
And when we meet around the board, or at the hour of prayer,
'T is then the heart most feels its loss — the loved ones are not there.
And thus while days and months steal on, as memory brings to view
The vision of departed joys, our grief is stirred anew.
Though faith may own a Father's hand, yet nature will rebel,
And feel how hard it is to say, " He hath done all things well.''
O mournful memories of the past, ye wear our lives away,
Ye haunt us in our dreams by night, and through each weary day ;
The home which late, like Eden's bower, in blooming beauty smiled,
Ye make a barren wilderness, a desert waste and wild.
But why thus yield to fruitless grief % Are they not happier far,
The sainted ones for whom we mourn, than we who linger here ?
Our hearts should glow with grateful love to Him, whose watchful eye
Saw dangers gathering round their path, and called them to the sky.
Not long shall we their loss deplore, for soon the hour will come,
When we, with those so fondly loved, shall slumberMn the tomb;
Then let the remnant of our days be to His service given,
Who hid our idols in the grave, lest we should fail of heaven.
Not willingly the Lord afflicts, nor grieves the sons of men ;
'T is but to wean our souls from earth, and break the power of sin :
He saw us wandering from his paths, and sent the chastening rod
To turn our feet from error's way, and bring us home to God.
Shall we defeat his wise design, and waste our days in tears,
Ungrateful for the numerous gifts that heaven in mercy spares 1
Let faith and hope be cherished still, and brighter days shall dawn,
And plants of peace shall spring anew from seed in sorrow sown.
