with a view of spending some time at the home of her youth in Cortland. Shortly after her arrival there she was attacked by what her physicians termed nervous pros- tration, brought on by excessive grief. From this, however, she so far recovered as to be able to write to her friends in Buffalo and elsewhere that she was convalescent. She suffered a relapse which terminated fatally. Rev.J. E. ROBIE, of Buffalo, a distin- guished clergyman and editor, was a brother-in-law of Mrs. WHITNEY, who supported her almost fainting form as she stood by the coffin of her husband. Upwards of twenty- five years before, amid all that made life happy, Mr. ROBIE united her in holy wedlock to the husband of her youth, now the silent inmate of that coffin. It is strange, indeed, that these three persons connected by so many ties, by such long and pleasing asso- ciations, should within so short a time all be laid in the tomb. Mrs. WHITNEY was a daughter of the late Gen. S. G. HATHAWAY, of Cortland, and a sister of Col. Samuel G. HATHAWAY, of Elmira. She was also a sister-in-law of Mrs. L. B. PROCTOR, of Dans- ville.
