Departed this life, on Wednesday, the 17th of February, after a protracted illness, Mr. Joel Smith, son of Mr. Charles Smith, of Albemarle county, aged twenty-four years and three months. Perhaps no youth contained a better moral characted, than did the subject of this obituary. He had for several years manifested much concern for the salvation of his soul. Not willing to be satisfied with any thing short of being built on the sure foundation,--Jesus Christ, he investigated closely and thoroughly, the subect of religion, and the depravity of his own heart. Sometime before his death, he was enabled to make a full surrender of his heart and soul to his Redeemer--after which he manifested an entire resignation to the will of God. Often did he express a wish to praise God more than his debilitated state would permit. Calm, collected, and composed, he fell asleep in Jesus. Parents and friends may dry up their tears of sorrow, and join together in praising God for his goodness.
