  • Notes 
    • DEATH OF A VETERAN - Mr. Thomas Langley, an old hero of the war of 1812. sank in the arms of dissolution on the 12th inst., at Crosshill. He was born in 1784 and was in his eighty fourth year at the time of his death. The place of his birth was New Hamphshire [sic], but his parents were English. When he arrived at the age of manhood he emigrated to Canada and lived for a considerable time on the Niagara frontier. He defended his adopted country against the Americans in 1812, and was in action at Queenstown Heights when the gallant Brock went down. He was also under orders to serve against the rebels in 1837-38. By some blunder on the part of the Government he never gained his land, which like his comrades he should have received as a reward for his services. His death was sudden although he has been in failing health for some time past. He died without the slightest evidence of a pang mental or physical, no doubt experiencing the truth of the saying Pompa mortis magis terret quan mors ipsa. Peace to his ashes! He has gone the way of all the earth, and long will his memory he respected by his mourning friends.\emdash Berlin Telegraph.
