Death of Richard Thomas.

We deeply regret to announce the death of Hon. Richard Thomas of this county, who died at his residence on Tuesday last. Mr. T., we understand, seemed to be in excellent health in the morning, and started to ride over his farm; he had left the house, however, but a short time when he was found by one of his servants lying in the road, speechless, having apparently been taken suddenly ill and fallen from his horse. He was immediately conveyed to his house, but survived only a few hours. Mr. Thomas was a courteous, high-toned and talented gentleman, and by his social virtues and his public usefulness had become endeared to the people of St. Mary's and won for himself an enviable distinction throughout the state. He had repeatedly served in the Legislature, and for several years was President of the State Senate--a station which he filled with distinguished ability. For some time previous to his death, Mr. T. was looked to as one among those most likely to succeed to the vacancy in the U.S. Senate occasioned by the resignation of the Hon. Reverdy Johnson. He is gone, however--and having died at a period when his experience and matured judgement had qualifed him for greater usefulness, his death may be truly regarded as a public loss. The remains of Mr. Thomas will be interred today at "Deep Falls", the residence of the widow of the late Ex-Governor James Thomas.will be interred today at Deep Falls.

He was the son of Major William Thomas, Jr. and Catherine Brooke Boarman.
