INVOCATION OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 7 January 1847

INVOCATION OF DEATH. Come to tlie graves quiet slumber Passionate heart I At the dread sound of thy dooming. Why dost thou start ? Oft didst thou sorrow and languish, Willing to go ; Wearily weeping—lamenting— heavy with wo ; Now is the time of thy calling. Why dost thou shrink! Why dost thou turn with such loathing From the grave's brink ? Soft in the depth of its shadow, See thou and mark ; Peaceful the bed now preparing In the chill dark! Here the wild sea of life's tumult Ceaseth to roarl Here the vain fever of love, Vexeth no more; Here shall no sound of reproaches Bitterly said, Filling the heart with hot aching. Trouble the dead ? Here are no partings— no Ieaving Friends dearly joined; Here is no sobbing and moaning Borne on the wind; Here shall no hope, fondly cherished, Crumble away ; Calm in its white shroud, and painless, Lies the still day, Though all the schemes it was planning On the high earth, Wrecked, ere the hour of fulfilment, Die in their birth! Come! with what t...

Death or Mr. Andrew Reid, the Printer and Publisher of The Cambridge Chromicle. —The illness of Mr. Reid, which vvas mentioned for the first time in the last number of the Chronicle, commenced about two years ago, and preyed so rapidly upon his vital energies as to alarm his friends more than himself. It was a painful pleasure to witness in him for successive weeks, the mastery of a strong will over a wasting frame, But the contest could not last long. On Monday he died, in the thirty-third year of his age, and yesterday his remains were followed to the tomb by the partner of his past joys and sorrows, by his relatives and personal friends, and by the Boston Lodge, No. 25, of I. O. of O. F. of which he waa a worthy member. Mr. Reid was a native of Bathgate, Scotland, and served his apprenceship as a printer at an office in Edinburgh. He went from Edinburgh to Halifux, N. S., and came from Halifax to Boston in Dec. 1834, where he was married, and after being employed at his trade unt...
