DIED — John Thomas, infant son of Chas. L. and Prudence H. HARRISON, died at their home, 6 miles west of Jackson, Wednesday, 16th inst., aged ten months and five days.

Thou art gone to the heavenly land of the blest,
And I know that thy sweet spirit now is at rest,
And thy soul now is free from earth’s anguish and pain,
For thou hast but returned to thy Savior again.
