The funeral of Geo. W. Lindsay will take place from his late residence this afternoon at one o'clock. All are respectfully invited to attend. Mr. Lindsay--formerly a citizen of Ohio--has been a resident of our city for several years, and has won universal respect, on account of his gentlemanly bearing, and his upright and honorable dealing with all who formed his acquaintance.
About three weeks since, he was attacked with hemorrhage of the lungs, which continued at intervals for several days, not causing serious apprehensions at first, but terminating in such a violent attack, as to leave his system so thoroughly demoralized, as to be unable to recover from the shock.
During the early part of his sickness he manifested great concern for the welfare of his soul, and prayed earnestly for God's favor and acceptance. Friends pointed him to the Savior, who had made full atonement for him, and urged him to accept of the provision so freely made. God, by his holy Spirit accompanied these admonitions, and brought him to realize his utter ruin out of Christ and to lay hold by faith upon his precious promises, and receive that comforting assurance of pardon and acceptance, that becomes the inheritance of all who come to God aright.
His loss is mourned by a large circle of friends, who do not mourn, however, as those who have no hope, but are fully assured that their loss is his eternal gain. R.
