Died, on the 6th November last, of typhoid fever, in York county, California, B. W. WALDROP, in his 39th year.  The subject of this brief notice was born in Laurens District, S. C., near Spring Grove, the 27th November, 1819.  At a very early age Mr. Waldrop lost his father, and on him, in a great measure, devolved the care, protection and raising of the family, the responsible duties of which he discharged most satisfactorily to all.  As a faithful and dutiful son, he inquired and obeyed the instructions of his bereaved and affectionate mother, and continued to superintend the management of the plantation till he commenced business for himself.  He emigrated to California in 1850, and although far away from his native Carolina, not one of his kindred by the ties of blood—nor his early associates—no sympathizing or affectionate sister or brother to sooth his dying pillow, or shed a tear of sorrow with his bereaved and disconsolate wife with whom he had but recently united—yet we have the consolation to know that he was dear to her and to all who knew him.  Mr. Waldrop united with the Methodist Church in his 20th year, and was a most exemplary member.  He was by natured distinguished for his mild, generous and obliging disposition.  It was the privilege of the writer of these few lines to be one of his early chosen friends foe many years and he now begs leave to offer this slight testimony of his appreciation of his worth and of his love to his memory.
