Beecher, Charles, son of the well-known Dr. Lyman Beecher, whose autobiography he chiefly edited, and brother of Henry Ward Beecher, was born at Litchfield, Connecticut, 1815. Mr. Beecher was for some time a Congregational pastor at Georgetown, Mass. He has published Review of Spiritual Manifestations, 1853; Pen Pictures of the Bible, 1855, &c. His hymns were contributed to his brother's Plymouth Collection, 1855, and include:—
1. There's rest in the grave. Heaven.
2. We are on our journey home. Heaven.
The latter is in the more extensive use, but both are unknown to the English collections. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.]
