COLLINS, CHARLIE - On Monday last, Charlie, son of Capt. S. A. Collins, aged about 4 years.

 Sleep on, dearest Charlie, sleep
   In they lone and narrow bed;
Oh! how lone since by they side,
   Loved ones whispered, "he is dead."

 Sleep on, dearest Charley, sleep;
    Though we are sad without thee here;
 Yet we should not dare recall thee
 Back to earth, so sad and drear.     M. L. McG.
