Hamilton Harris.

The death of the above named gentleman, only casual mention of which was made last week, was an event deeply lamented. He was a warm hearted man of honorable instincts and possessed the universal friendship of all. He possessed a brilliant mind and in whatever mental task he undertook evidences of his genius bubbled out conspicuously at every phase.

Mr. Harris’ health began to give way a little more than a year ago. He spent a portion of the last winter in Florida, which change benefited him some, but his malady had too strong a hold on his frame to be shaken and he gradually declined until the end came, after about two weeks final confinement to his bed. An abscess on his lungs bursted, from the effects of which he never rallied.

Mr. Harris leaves a wife and little daughter both of whom were too ill in Rome to be at his bedside or funeral. Dr. Hillyer, his father-in-law, and Miss Hillyer, his sister-in-law, were however among the mourners at his funeral.

Mr. Harris had $5,000 insurance on his life.
