Lisbon, N.Y., May 5, (1858) ae. 48, at the residence of James North, his brother-in-law. For several years a practicing lawyer, and for a number of the last years of his life a justice of the peace, he had come to be quite extensively known, and respected for his legal knowledge, the accuracy of his decisions, and the undeviating integrity of his character. He was an honest man; and the innate devotion of the man to the principle of exact justice to all men, and of equal rights to all, was not a dormant or inert principle; it shone out conspicuously in his every act, and won the confidence and respect of every man with whom he was brought into connection in the varied affairs and pursuits of life. The bar say of him, "That we receive the announcement of the death of our departed brother with sentiments of unfeigned sorrow; that in his deceased the bar of St. Lawrence Co. has lost a member estimable alike for his accurate knowledge of his profession, his unblemished integrity, his kindly disposition, and many amiable qualities; and our community, a citizen, who, in his private and official relations, was entitled to our unqualified respect.
