An indisposition of nearly two years, followed by a still more serious illness of four months, has incapacitated Superintendent Deane from attending to his official duties, and confined him to his house. This illness proved to be his last, for shortly after midnight on Monday he expired, at the age of 67.

The deceased we are informed, was originally constable at Shinfield, and after that lived at Reading, where he was sergeant of the police force. In 1838 he removed to Newbury, where he was night superintendent up to 1852, when, on the death of Mr. Alfred Milsom, he was appointed superintendent, and has continued in office from that time.

His death was from hydrothorax, or water on the chest. He appeared about as usual on Monday, but about three o'clock a change was noticed, and death succeeded shortly after midnight.

The deceased, it will be remembered, received a testimonial from inhabitants of the borough two or three years ago.
