ONE OF LTHE OLDEST CLERGYMEN IN THE PROVINCE PASSES PEACEFULLY AWAY. At the time of his birthday party only a month ago, the Rev. J.C. MORSE, D.D., displayed an intellectual vigor that so completely disguised his physical weakness, most of those who were present were under the impression that he was likely to remain with us for years to come. But, it seems that on March 11th, he experienced a serious increase of the heart trouble with which he had been affected for several years, and notwithstanding the valiant resistance of his strong constitution, all that could be done by a skillful physician, and the tender nursing of his loved ones, the disease made steady progress, the end coming at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, April 21st. His last moments were brightly illuminated by that strong faith, which, for more than sixty-nine years, had been the controlling principle of his life. His final words to the writer being "Preach the Gospel". This noble soldier of Christ was born at Paradise, Annapolis Co., March 23rd, 1819. He was converted at the age of 19, and almost immediately he began preaching the gospel. For 62 years he had the pastoral oversight of the entire Baptist interest on Digby Neck. During this long pastorate he baptized a very large number. Many of whom have passed within the vale, many more are living and working for Jesus in other parts of the world - while the remainder form the majority of the Baptist church membership in the churches at Rossway, Waterford, Centreville, Sandy Cove and Little River. Among these is the first one the aged minister baptized, Mr. Kelsey DENTON, of Little River, when the candidate was eighteen years old and the minister twenty-one, sometime in April, sixty-seven years ago. He also conducted numerous funerals and solemnized a great many marriages. In one family, he married four generations. Dr. MORSE was twice married, the maiden name of his first wife being Isabelle WOODWORTH, by whom he had nine children. His second wife was Frances DAKIN, who with their two children survive him. He also has living twelve grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. Mrs. MORSE, her son Charles MORSE, and her daughter, Mrs. Mary DELANCY, in their great affliction, have the earnest heart sympathy of every one in this region, of all the Baptists in the Atlantic Provinces and of thousands of our people who have emigrated to other sections. Dr. MORSE was a typical example of the old fashioned Baptist minister. He possessed remarkable physical strength, splendid mental abilities, and a deep, strong, and unvarying spirituality. As a pulpit orator, in his prime, he was almost without an equal. His address at the Baptist Convention held in Bridgetown in 1892, will rank with the very best ever heard in Canada, as his thought and language expanded with the development of his subject, the great throng quite forgot the distinguished speakers who were present from the United States and other parts of Canada. This wonderful example of Christian eloquence left an impression that can never be effaced. THE FUNERAL The funeral was conducted at Sandy Cove, on Wednesday, April 24th. A very brief service was held at the house, after which the remains were borne to the Church preceeded by five clergymen, and followed by a great throng of mourners and friends. The service was conducted by the pastor at Sandy Cove, Rev. A.F. BROWNE. After a few well chosen remarks he expessed his regret that Rev. J.R. SAUNDERS had not been able to come but had sent a letter, expressing his great appreciation of the worth and character and friendship of the departed. This letter was then read. Then after a beautiful solo, the leader called upon R.O. MORSE, of Westport. Mr. Morse gave a glowing eulogy in regard to him who had been his father's cousin and said that while the MORSE'S had a good deal of family pride, there was no name that was dearer to that family, than that of Dr. J.C. MORSE. Then Rev. J.T. EATON, Rev. A.J. ARCHIBALD and Rev. R.B. MACK were called upon in turn, and each expressed their highest appreciation of the man that was, and is. The last testimony on this notable occasion was given by Mr. Kelsey DENTON, a man, 85 years of age. He was asked to speak because he was the first man that Dr. MORSE had baptized. Mr. DENTON was listened to with much appreciation. It was a day of great sorrow for those who loved him, and they were not a few, it was a day of great triumph for those who knew him, for they were certain that death had not obtained the victory but that he had triumphed over death. Considering the inclemency of the weather the funeral was very large.
