Our obituary of to-day contains the names of two old and respected tradesmen of the town. These are Mr.James Blacket and Mr. Samuel Biddis.


Mr. Blacket succumbed on Saturday morning last to gradual illness of some month's duration. His death is real loss to the town. was a Liberal in politics, and was firm and conscientious in his adherence to the Independent body of religionists. His principles were maintained by him, without on the one hand any exhibition of party spirit, and on the other of any bigotry or intolerance. The respect in which was held by all parties and creeds was illustrated on Wednesday, the day of the funeral. The houses were partially closed and blinds drawn all along the route from Square to the Cemetery. The cortege was also followed the Mayor, several members of the Corporation, and a numerous body of tradesmen. The funeral service was read by the Rev. E. W. Shaldere, who also made a few fitting observations at the grave-side.
