Departed this life on Saturday evening last in this town after a long and painful illness, JOSHUA JOHNSON, Esq. for many years a respectable Merchant in London and lately superintendent of Stamps in the City of Washington.

On Monday evening his remains were respectfully deposited in the silent tomb in the Episcopal burial ground attended by numerous relatives and friends.

In early life Mr Johnson embarked in commercial pursuits, went over to London prior to the American Revolution, where he established a commercial connexion, long and well known for its extensive dealings and credit. His attachment to the liberties of his native country and his decided opposition to the oppressive measures of the then British Government, induced him to relinquish his favorite pursuits for a few years and to retire with his family to France. At the conclusion of the War he returned again to London, resumed his former profession, which he continued to pursue until a few years ago, when a disposition to retired induced him to return to his native Country, there to ipend the evening of his days.

His attention to his countrymen, in prosperity or in adversity both in London and in France was great and unremitted. His house was a hospitable aslyum to the Americans and particularly to those from his native state.

His country sensible of his services and sacrifices during the American war conferred on him the honorable appointment of Consul at the Port of London, and on his return to Maryland he was appointed to superintend one of the revenue departments of the government.

He was an affectionate husband, an indulgent parent, and a useful citizen. By his death his family hath sustained an irreparable loss and society a valuable member.

Daughter Louisa Catherine Johnson, wife of President John Quincy Adams
