Died, at the residence of Mr. Wm. Tyrce, in the city of Richmond, Va., on Saturday morning. May 24th, 1862, Mr. Joseph A. Moak, a native of New York, but for several years a resident of Virginia, in the 30th year of his age, leaving a devoted wife and infant son, with many connexions and friends here, as well as aged parents and other relatives and friends in his native State, to lament his early death.

Mr. Moak was a civil engineer, of more than ordinary merit, being a graduate of a polytechnic school of the highest grade. In him were happily united a gentle and affectionate disposition, with rare intellectual endowments. His moral character was irreproachable, and for several years he had been endeavoring to walk with God; and though he did not connect himself here with any branch of the Church of Christ, he was nevertheless a regular attendant upon the worship of the sanctuary at the Broad Street M. E. Church; and when the messenger came to summon him away, he doubtless had on the wedding garment, and went in to the marriage feast of the Lamb.

It is sad to look upon a form so manly, with a spirit so noble, fast declining under the ravages of that insidious destroyer, the consumption; but when the withering of the flower day by day, develops the ripening of the fruit, and when at last the reapers come to gather the rich harvest to the skies, the hearts that cling to the loved one with fondest affection bid sorrow give place to hope; and she whose heart is shrouded in deepest gloom, sees through the thick darkness the morning star of hope heralding forth the bright day of eternity, when she, with her dear little babe, shall be reunited to the object of her affections, to be separated no more forever. [*] Lawrence.

Died, on the 24th inst., after a short but painful illness, Mollie V. R., the only daughter of Chas. H. And Helen A. Wheeler, aged one year and four months.

lines on the death of little Mollie.

Peerless of earth, a sweet little flower,
Modest and lovely, infant gem;
Thrice blessed thy native land and bower,
Honored and blessed thy parent stem.

Weep not for thy Mollie, dear parents,
Tho' thy hearts with anguish are riven;
The bud has only been removed from earth,
To bloom and live in Heaven.

Angels of mercy, thy vigils keep,
Over dear little Mollie, in her last sleep;
The crib is empty — the cherub is gone--
Thy will, oh Father, not ours, be done,

’ F. P. M.

on the 24th inst., at 7½ o'clock A. M., at Locust Hill, the residence of Mr. Thos. Blunts, in Chesterfield, Herbert Dwight, only son of A. D. And Mary J. Brown, aged 16 months.

death spreads his withering, wintry arms,

And Herbert Smiles no more;
Ah! where are now those rising charms
Which pleased our eyes before?

That once loved form, now cold and dead,
Each mournful thought employs;
We weep our earthly comforts fled,
And withered all our joys.
