      Mrs. Sarah F. Ousley, relict of the late Rev. N. Ousley, died in Vineville, on the 28th June, in her 60th year.

      She in early life joined the M. E. Church, and has ever since lived an exemplary life-living every day in reference to death. She lived to see the youngest of seven children of age-all of whom are left to mourn their loss; but we mourn not as those who have no hope. Several times during her short illness, she asked if one could prepare for death, suffering such excruciating pain. Her answer to this her inquiry was, they could not; and then said she had long since made that preparation, and was now happy, even in view of approaching dissolution-knowing that death was her eternal gain. She gave to her children that were present godly admonition-impressing them with the necessity of making preparation in health for death. The writer of this, and one other, was not there to receive a mother's blessing and parting advice; yet he well remembers her last words to him, as he left for the work assigned him by Conference. She kissed him, and, with overflowing heart, said, "God bless you, my son." She was a constant reader of the Bible-a great lover of Bishop Morris's sermons, and for several past has read the New Testament, accompanied with Burkitt's Notes, through yearly. Death found her ready-her house in order; and we feel, as we turn our faces homeward, that where the pure in spirit are, there our loved mother is, enjoying the full fruition of her labors.
