DIED — In this county, on the 3d of August, of inflammation of the bowels, Mr. John H. CHUN, a most industrious and worthy man.

Thus the Lord has called from time to eternity a pure man, devoted father and husband, and a true friend and neighbor, and his many friends deeply mourn his loss; but not as those that have no hope; for they have his word that he trusted alone in the Savior, and that if it was the Lord’s will to take him he was willing to go.  A most affecting scene between the dying christian and his wife and children, occurred around the death bed in the last agonizing moments.  He bad them farewell with tearless but affectionate eyes, and bade them live so as to meet him in that blessed land where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.  Thus he died in the full hope of a glorious restoration.
