At Green Row, on Friday the 28th ult., at an advanced age, Mr. Joseph SAUL. He had been, for nearly half a century, the conductor and proprietor of the Green Row Academy, and few men have passed through a long life, in a situation so onerous, with so much respect. He was a man of great and varied acquirements, and the influence which his talents and public spirit acquired for him, not merely in the district where he was best known, but throughout the County, when he mixed in public affairs, was probably greater than was ever possessed by any other private individual. In politics he was a man of large and liberal views, and took an active part in all public affairs calculated to advance or uphold the independence of the County. As a farmer he most materially aided in promoting those improvements in agriculture which have raised this County so high for its excellent cultivation—though greatly, we fear, to his own private disadvantage. In every relation of private life he was a pattern to all around him, and had secured the friendship and respect of the most respected men in this County. His precise age we have not been able to ascertain, owing to some accident in the delivery of our letters from that neighbourhood, but we believe he had nearly reached the patriarchal age of 80, having retained all his faculties unimpaired almost to the last. His loss will be long and deeply deplored throughout the district of the Abbey Holme.
