Obituary

SOUTH RYEGATE -- We hear with profound sorrow of the death of Mr. Archibald Hunter, at the residence of his father, in Topsham.

For several years past Mr. Hunter has been engaged in business in this place, where he made many friends. He was a young man of steady habits and religious principles, possessing rare business talents and integrity above suspicion. His untiring industry and perseverance were crowned with success.

It is melancholy to see so young and promising one who occupies so much room in their hearts of his numerous friends, fall prey to the unsparing ravages of consumption. Many there are outside the bereaved family circle, who deeply mourn his death. The light and joy of those dearest to him are turned into darkness and grief. -- His body now slumbers in the silent chambers of the tomb, but the time will come when the flowers of intellect that fade in this valley of tears, will spring forth in immortal glory, as the winter buds expand and blossom, regenerated by the genial breath of spring.
