We chronicle the death of Mrs. H.

The deceased lady was aged about thirty-six years. She was the widow of the late John G. Fordyce, Esq., a well-known Philadelphia salesman - at the time she married her present bereaved husband - and was well and widely known and esteemed for her many attractive traits of character, and her early death will be sincerely mourned by many endearing friends. The remains were brought to this place on Thursday last, and interred in Green Mount Cemetery, a large concourse of relatives and friends from the community in which she lived and died, attending the last sad and impressive rites.
