BARTON, MRS. HARRIET - On Sabbath morning last, of Ague, Mrs. Harriet Barton, consort of M. H. Barton.  The deceased had been much afflicted with chills and fever during the summer and fall; but had been much better for a few days.  On Saturday afternoon she had an attack of the chill, from which she did not recover.  Mrs. Barton has resided with her husband and family, for a number of years, in this town and neighborhood, and was well known as a good and affectionate wife, a kind and indulgent mother, a benevolent and accommodating neighbor, and a devoted and consistent christian.  She was a member of the Wesleyan Church, and had a strong hold on the affections of all the brethren and sisters in the church.  She was remarkable prompt in the discharge of all her christian duties.  Where her health would permit, she was a constant attendant upon public worship, and the prayer meeting; and she was especially efficient in the benevolent operations of the church, giving a constant aid to the Dorcas Society, where the sisters met weekly to labor for the relief of the poor.  She has gone to receive her reward from that Heavenly Father, who does not look with indifference on one who gives a cup of cold water to a disciple, in the name of a disciple.
