THACKARA,-On the 12th inst., CARRIE THACKARA, daughter of Benjamin and Jane Thackara, in the 19th year of her age.
  She died; yet death could scarcely chill
      Her smiling beauties, tho’ she lay
  With cold extended limbs, while still
      Her face looked fairer than the day.
  Those eyes, once eloquent with bliss,
      Were closed as soft as shutting flowers,
  Oh! few could bear a sight like this-
      Yet such a sight is ours.
  Still doth it seem like sin to grieve
    For one so patient and resigned;
  But if she mourn’d, it was to leave
    Such sorrowing hearts behind.
  Oh! can we think our sister gone-
    A sister that was kind and dear-
  Can it be so loved a one
    Our saddened hearth no more shall cheer!
The relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend her funeral, from her parent's’ residence, No. 511 Christian street, this (Wednesday) afternoon, at 3 o’clock.
