      A BEREAVED FAMILY.

      In Carroll county, Va., near Mount Pleasant Church, lived the family of Carter Cox. Both parents and children were alike devoted to temperance, piety and relgion. The commencement of 1862 saw this family, husband and wife, six sons and three daughters, all in the enjoyment of health, industrious in the pursuits of business, kind and affectionate to each other; happy in the service of God they lived. But alas! a sad change came quickly over that family; in a few short weeks Hamilton, Fleming, Melville, Drusilla and Leah had all fallen victim to Diptheria. Giles A. Cox, the eldest son was in Gen. Floyd's staff and has not been heard of since the battle of Fort Donelson. W. D. Cox, a younger brother in the army of the Potomac, died of fever at Danville, Va.

      These pious children having laid up their treasure in Heaven, died as happy as they had lived - faithful. Someof them when speechless in death, clapped their glad hands in token of victory. How impressively the history of this family presents the sacred truth - "Therefore be ye also ready."

      May the parents and brother and sister, surviving members of this deeply afflicted family, feel assured that they will soon rejoin their loved ones in the blissful home of all the faithful at God's right hand in Heaven.
