Death of a Young Lady in Her Sad Circumstances

About six weeks ago, Miss Amanda STEPHENS, daughter of Mr. Lindsey STEPHENS of Whiteley township, took a trip to the state of Iowa to visit her grandfather, Maj. Benson FORDYCE, and other relatives residing in that State. She had visited about among her friends, and went to visit her uncle's Azariah STEPHENS, who lives in Ringgold county, same state, where she was stricken down with typhoid fever, which made rapid inroads upon her system. Her father was telegraphed to, announcing the serious illness of his daughter, and last Wednesday, accompanied by his mother, Mrs. Barzilla STEPHENS, he came to Waynesbiurg on his way to Iowa, purposing to take the afternoon train, but missed it. He remained over night here and took the early Thursday morning train, arriving at Azariah STEPHENS' on Friday night but to find his daughter had passed from earth. She died on Friday morning.

Mr. STEPHENS will bring the body of his daughter home for interment, and is now on the way and will be here on this evening's train or to-morrow evening at the farthest.

Miss STEPHENS was aged about eighteen years, a beautiful and amiable young lady, and her unexpected death is a sad blow to her father and many other loving friends.
