Bishop Cobb, of Alabama, has deprived the Episcopal Church of one of its wisest, best, and most beloved and venerated ministers. Bishop Cobb was a native of Virginia, and formerly rector of one of the Episcopal churches in Petersburg. His character was one of patriarchal integrity, simplicity and virtue. In the innocence and affectionateness of his disposition, he was the St. John of the modern apostolate, whose head ever seemed to repose upon the Saviour's breast, and who all men wished might tarry till He came.
