Died

August 20th (26?) at the residence of Dr. Manning AUSTIN, Col Thomas P. BROCKMAN, of Greenville. Col BROCKMAN was born in Greenville District. His father was one of the first settlers in the district and lived to a good old age, esteemed and respected by all who knew him for integrity, kindness, and many Christian virtues. At a very early period of life Col. BROCKMAN entered the mercantile business and pursued it to within a short period of his death. He was also an extensive and most successful farmer. As a public man he was honored by his fellow-citizens at an early period of his life and enjoyed their fullest confidence. He rose through every grade of military office to that of the command of the Regiment in which he lived. For many years he commanded the lower Regiment in Greenville District, and was very popular as an officer. In 1831 he was elected, with Governor MIDDLETON, Silas WHITTEN, and Major PERRY, to represent the District of Greenville in the State Convention, called to nullify the act of Congress imposing duties for protection. In 1836, he was re-elected by the most flattering votes of his constituents. He finally withdrew from public life, but was again called to represent his district in the State Convention of 1852, which convened for the purpose of seceding from the Federal Union. In 1852 he was elected Senator from Greenville District and in that body took a high position as a business man and as a practical debater.
