Death of Colonel A.H. Sevier

With feelings of profound sadness, we announce the death of this distinguished citizen. He died on the 31st ult., at the residence of his father-in-law, the Hon. B. Johnson. We are deeply sensible that no eulogy of ours can do justice to his memory, no tribute to his goodness of heart, or greatness of soul, from our pen, will be worthy of the man. We are unequal to the task - and can but tell how ably and faithfully he has served his State and his country; how warmly and devotedly he clung to his friends. In private life, love, and sympathy and affection, were offerings to him everywhere; and in his political career, his bitterest opponents, even, confessed his magnanimity, and punctilious sense of justice.

His remains were brought on the steamer Medium, to this city for interment, by Tho's Churchill, Esq., and Col. B.S. Johnson. When the intelligence of his death reached the General Assembly, then in session, both Houses adjourned - after the passage of a resolution honoring his memory, and the appointment of a joint committee to arrange the funeral ceremonies.
