LONGEVITY.- On Monday last, at St Bartholomew’s almshouses, died Sarah Wright, one of the oldest inhabitants of this town. She was born in the month of March, 1752, and had therefore had exceeded one hundred years of age. Since Christmas her health had been gradually declining, but previously she enjoyed a good state of health, and only two or three years since expressed, “that she hardly knew what ailed her,” because she could not manage to carry a bucket of water quite so comfortably. She was a native of this town, and was well-known to the old inhabitants, as she held the situation of servant to the corporation for 62 years, and when the “Municipal Act” came into operation, she retired into the almshouses. She was the eldest daughter of 21 children, and mother of fifteen. On Monday morning she laid herself down to rest, imagining that the shades of evening was fast approaching, and slept to wake no more. There are three of her children living, the eldest of whom is upwards of 70, and who followed her remains to the grave, yesterday (Friday).
