Death of Judge Land.

We are pained to chronicle the death of this old and most estimable citizen of our county, which occurred at his home near Cassville on Monday last.  His death was not unexpected as he had been in very feeble health for several months.

Judge Nathan Land was born in Twiggs county, Ga., in May 1812, which made him 78 years old last May.  The deceased came to Bartow, (then Cass) county, in 1847, where he has since resided.  He practiced law in his native county successfully and with distinction for ten years.  After his removal to Cass county, he was elected to the judgeship of the county court.  He was soon afterwards elected to the office of ordinary, which position he filled up to the beginning of the war.

Judge Land was a man of the highest integrity who dared to do right regardless of public opinion.  He was such a man as would reflect honor upon the citizenship of any county or state, and it is with sadness and sorrow we chronicle his death.
