Death of George W. Noxon, Esq.

This community were sadly surprised yesterday by the sudden death of this estimable citizen. Though in feeble health for several years, his disease, bleeding at the lungs, gave no premonitory symptoms of approaching disolution. On Wednesday he was as cheerful and active as usual, and in the evening attended a social party at his father's. At a little past 11 o'clock he was again attacked with rapid hemorrage at the lungs, and soon expired.
Our citizens are thus suddenly called to mourn the loss of one of their number, who had been reared in their midst, and who had, by his many virtues, won the respect of all his acquaintances, he commenced the practice of law, with more than ordinary prospects of success; but disease soon blighted his hopes of earthly fame and removed him to that "Bourne whence no traveler returns."
The entire community join us in expressions of sympathy for his bereaved and sorrowing friends. May He, "who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," sustain them in this their time of trial.
