All that WAS mortal of the late Stephen H. cordill of Franklin parish, La., was laid at rest yesterday in the city cemetery. The last sad rites were performed by those who were near and dear to him, though in life be loved all mankind and held all his fellow-men dear in heart. This great-hearted son of noble parents was a man of wealth, whose home, heart and purse were open to all comers; who sought in every possible way, save that of ostentation, to contribute to the welfare and happiness of all men, women and children within reach, and for many beyond the radius of his parish for no call for relief was heard by him without receiving prompt and ready response. his home, presided over by a loving and devoted wife and mother quite often resembled a large hotel, for it was thescene of numerous gathering, large and small, but never too large for this generous heart-whole host and his Loving help- Meet. he was a man who held the broadest views of life, believing that it should be invested with as much sunshine and happiness as the hours could give.. He realized that care and trouble would come without being sought and sought to serve his fellow men by giving of his means to soften their burdens. Liberal in all things, He held the love and esteem of all who knew him. and the memory of what he was in life will live in their hearts until they have been called to join him on that echoless shore, where all is radiant with thi happiness and sunshine of eternal life. The subject of the above notice in the Natchez Democrat, Stephen H. cordill was born in this parish, on the Barcelona plantation, near Waterproof, and was the son of Mr. Joseph Cordill long a resident of this pariah and the eldest brother ot Hon. c. C. cordill. Mr Stephen Cordill had many friends and acquaintances in tensas who knew his sterling worth as a man and who will hear with regret the news of his untimely death.
