While we write the bell is tolling its last sad requiem to the memory of Capt. James Vaughan, who departed this life at his residence in this place, on Wednesday morning last, of that fell disease Consumption.—At this moment the solemn tread of those who are bearing his mortal remains to their last resting place is heard in our streets. – Capt. Vaughan was an old and good citizen, universally esteemed and respected.  He expressed a willingness to die, as death to him had lost its terrors.  His flesh shall rest in hope.  He leaves a devoted wife and a family of doting children, together with a host of kindred and friends, to mourn his loss; but they mourn not as those without hope.  Their loss is his eternal gain.  He is buried with Masonic honors by his brethren of the mystic tie.  May God “temper the winds to the shorn lambs.”
