Death of Rev. Isaac McCoy. The following extract from the Baptist Pioneer, will communicate the mournful and unexpected event of the death of a brother, who for many years continued the steady friend of the red men of the forest:
Departed this life, after an illness of twenty-one days, at his residence in this city,”at 9—30m. P. M , on the 21st inst., the distinguished and indefatigable missionary and friend of the Indian, Ret. Isaac McCoy. He preached in Jeffersonville, opposite this city, on Lord’s day, the 31st ult., then quite indisposed from having been caught in the rain a day or two previous. On Monday he was taken with a chill, and was forced to take his bed by the violence of the attack, •which soon developed itself in the form of billious fever, combined with a chronic neuralgia, from which he had suffered for many years. So complicated was his disease, and so fragile and exhausted bis constitution, by exposure and arduous missionary labor in the Indian country, that the skill of our best physicians and the unremitted attention of friends, were alike baffled by the disease, and he sunk gradually and calmly into the arms of death ; full of faith, and happy in his approaches to immortality and eternal life. As a more extended notice of his life and the scenes around his death-bed is contemplated, and doubtlessly expected and desired, than could be given iu an obituary, we forbear further remarks at this time.
