June 7 1836 We copy the following Poem, from the “Ulster Times,” occasioned by the death of MISS JANE WOODS, daughter of MR. JAMES WOODS, of Glentimon, near this town, who was born Deaf and Dumb. Some time ago, she and her little brother, were sent to the Deaf and Dumb Institution in Belfast, where the boy took fever and recovered - she caught the infection and died. Being almost a stranger to the Institution, it must be very consoling to her parents to find that she was so much beloved in that seminary, and the very great attention paid to her by her tutors whilst on her death bed reflect the greatest credit on that Institution
