Deaths: Eggleston, Radcliffe

Died, of bilious fever, at the residence of his father, Mr. Everard F. Eggleston, in the county of Amelia, on Sunday the 27th instant, in the 19th year of his age, Joseph Eggleston. Though thus cut off at his entrance into manhood, his opening virtues betokened, in their mature development, a beautiful and admirable character. Truthful, sincere, affectionate and gentle, he won his way to the esteem and love of all who knew him. His fond parents beheld in him every thing that could endear a son to them. As a brother, none could be more kind, and none in return was ever more tenderly loved. Let the anguish of his family in this their great bereavement find some alleviation in the condolence and warm sympathy of a numerous circle of friends by whom he was known and his worth appreciated.

Died in Jerusalem, Southampton County, on the 17th instant, James Radcliffe, in the 66th year of this age. The deceased was a native of the Isle of Man, and served in the English Army under Wellington on the field of Waterloo. In all the relations of life he was exemplary, kind, and affectionate; and has left a devoted family and a large circle of frients to mourn his death. [The New York papers will please copy.]
