At Rest - Yesterday Miss Malinda, daughter of J. W. and Sarah Pemberton, departed this life. The deceased was born on the 12th day of November, 1863, and was seventeen years of age. She was a lovely girl, just budding into sweet and beautiful womanhood; she was the pride of her parents, and was loved and admired by all for her pure and sweet temper and noble character. She leaves a father and mother, three brothers and four sisters, with many warm and dear friends to deplore her departure. The funeral will occur tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 9 o'clock, from the family residence on Howard street, between Sixteen and Seventeenth.
