The following has already been published :-

"- What if thou withdraw
In silence from the living, and no friend
Take note of thy departure? All that breathe

Will share thy destiny.' “ Yes, it is even so, and ever will be while the race of man has a being on the earth.

" But what if the gay do laugh,' and 'the solemn brood of care plod on,' and each one as before do chase his favorite phantom. May not memory drop a tear when loved ones die? May not the living lay to heart the teachings of the dead, and dwell with profit on the lessons of their lives? As truly as no man ought to live to himself, s) truly ought no one to die unheaded by those who survive him.

" Each individual is the centre of a circle more or less wide, which is affected by the influence thus exerted, not simply while the individual lives, but long after he has left this world. That influence may be for weal or for woe, for good or for evil. And the good or evil is not to be measured by years. Some men die old, though young in years, if those years, few that they have been, have been so passed as to leave an imperishable record of a well-spent life.

6 What artist ever lived who has left a more enduring record on the scroll of fame than Raphael ? But he closed his earthly existence at the age of thirty-seven. lle did not die ; for genius never dies. Raphael lives in his works, and ever will live while there is one left on the earth who can appreciate true genius,

“So in every department of life is it true that genuine worth leaves an undying record.

“ The subject of this notice was one who, with instinctive modesty, always shrunk from notoriety, and sought no applause save the verdict of an approving conscience. But though he had no fondness for distinction, and no ambition but to do right, he has left an example worthy of imitation, and possessed virtues which friendship delights to embalm.

* Possessed of rare talents, in the enjoyment of quick intellectual perceptions, an extraordinary facility in stating, analyzing, and comprehending the most complicated and perplexing questions of finance and accounts which enter into the vast business concerns of such a mercantile house as that of which he was for years a partner (JAJES M. BEEBE & Co., Boston), and in which he proved himself an able and highlyvalued coadjutor with the well-known head of the establishment in the financial department, he never faltered, or was known to be mistaken ; and his judgment on business questions was as sound and reliable as his figures were clear and demonstrable.

“In addition to these talents, which were natural endowments, he possessed a highly cultivated mind, showing that he had not kept his talents in a napkin, but, on the contrary, had turned them to valuable account.

" Ile was industrious to a fault-incessant in labor and application to what he esteemed to be his duty.

- lle never seemed to have a thought of himself as such, but only what he could do, and how it might be best performed.

- He was, of course, not slothful in business,' but his industry was not prompted by avaricious or unworthy motives. He did not desire wealth, or eeek its attainment as an end; but only as a means.

“He was fond of his chosen employment, and worked cheerfully ; but when he had earned a competence, it was his aim and desire to use his gains so as to make otheis comfortable and happy.

* To this end he sought out objects of need, and was eager to relieve them.

“ He had no leisure for the gay pleasures of life ; but preferred his own library, or his mother's fireside to the more public or fashionable places of resort. When the insidious and treacherous disease, to which he has fallen a victim, fist prostrated his frame to such a degree that he was compelled to relinquish his attention to his accustomed business occupations, he sought to arrest its progress by visiting foreign countries, and when he found that the experiment lailed, he cheerfully returned to his native land and to his mother's house, and there, peacefully and gracefully acquiescing in the manifest will of his Heavenly Father, be passed his remaining days on earth.

“It was a pleasure to him, as it certainly was to those who loved him most tenderly, that it was so ordered that he might thus end his life, if his work was to be thus early done.

" It is within the knowledge of the writer that Mr. Cutter was beloved to an uncommon degree by all his associates in business. Not only did he win their confidence by bis integrity, and command their respect by his talents, but he also secured their esteem, and even affection, by the lovely traits of character which were a part of his very self.

“ His end was peace. Ile was spared even a conflict with the King of Terrors; but quietly, cheerfully, firmly, as he had lived, so he died, surrounded by his family, consoled by the teachings of that religion which he professed, and in the faith of which he breathed his last--having but a short time before his departure from this world received from his pastor the memorials of a Saviour's dying love, he was permitted, as we humbly hope, to exchange the chamber of sickness and weakness for the mansions of eternal joy.

" Would that his example might stimulate other young men to work and toil like him, to do good to others, to honor God, and to leave behind them the fragrant memory of a well-spent life. Boston, January 27, 1861.".
