Deaths

Lately at Chicago, U. S, aged 61, James G. PERCIVAL, the poet and state geologist of Wisconsin.

Lately, aged 107, Mrs Hannah WATT of Hambrook, nr Bristol.

Lately at Buffalo aged 60, Ageide Van KEHR. He was born in France and was a soldier of Napoleon 1, was ex-patriated by the Government on the downfall of the great general, when the Burbons resumed their dynasty, when he went to the United States. About 30yrs ago he located himself in Buffalo, and avoiding human society, he made his home in the forests around the city, living in hollow trees or burrowing in the ground, in consequence of which he received the name of John the Hermit. He would speak no English, although he was versed in the language, repeating that he would not speak the tongue of those who defamed and destroyed Napoleon. He was companion of Napoleon in the brilliant march of the great army upon Russia, and returned with the wreck of its innumerable squadrons, on the fatal and horrible retreat from the conflagration of Moscow. For the past winter he had slept and lived beneath a barn, about two miles from the city. Into this place he dragged an immense quantity of hay, which amounted to nearly two tons, and which was so firmly packed and woven that it effectually preserved him from the terrible cold of the season just past, and where he was found entirely naked, in the last stages of the typhoid fever. His habits were off the most singular character, and although furious occasionally in language, which was usually French, he had always proved himself as harmless to society as a child. If any garment of any description was given to him, he would take it to his burrow and cover it with patches, sewing them on the cloth without regard to rents. He had frequently been seen quarrelling with dogs for bones which had been thrown away. Various had been the attempts to obtain from his own lips his personal history. Homeless, houseless, childless, friendless and alone, he had wearily trod through 60 years of miserable, ungrateful existence, and went down to his grave a pauper in all that gives a charm to life. In pauper earth with pauper's rites, and with no sorrow or sympathy save that which rose in pauper breasts, he lies, the rattling of the dust upon his pauper coffin lid his requiem and his dirge.
