     Death of Mrs. JOHNSON - We regret to learn that the wife of ENOCH JOHNSON, Esq., Superintendent of the Cleveland, Zanesville & Cincinnati Rail Road, died at their residence in Hudson, Summit County, on Monday morning last.  She was a most estimable lady.

Dated: July 14, 1854
     Suddenly, at Akron, Ohio, on Friday last, universally esteemed by all who knew him, Jared, youngest son of Isaac HATHAWAY of Farmington, New York.
     We were wholly unprepared for his melancholy announcement.  The event has plunged a large and worthy family in the deepest affliction.  Death has entered a happy circle, and carried off the youngest of an united band of brothers.  We sympathize fully with our bereaved and mourning friends; for we sorrow for him that has departed, as for a brother.  Unexceptionable in the discharge of his domestic duties - faithful and firm in friendship - just and upright in all his dealings with his brother man, it is not surprizing that the deceased possessed the unbounded confidence of all who were connected with him in business, and the high esteem and regard of his friends.  His bereaved family do not sorrow "as these who have no hope." The hope of the Christian in theirs.  They have committed all that was mortal of him, so dear to them, to the grave, "in sure and certain hope of the resurrection from the dead."
"It matters little of what hour o' the day
The righteous falls asleep; death cannot come
To him untimely who is fit to die.;
The loss of this cold world, the more of heaven;
The briefer life, the earlier Immortality." J. G.
