Departed this life, on the night of the 14th instant, near Pittsborough, SAMUEL S. JACKSON, Esq., in the 70th year of his age.

We speak the voice of the whole community in which he lived when we say, "seldom have so many virtues marked the life of a private citizen." Amiable, generous, just and charitable, he was of incorruptible integrity and spotless honor. Averse to the contests of public life, he could never be induced to enter the arena of politics; and though bred to the Bar, and with intellectual powers such as must have given him high position among its members, he yet declined the heats of the Forum,—preferring "along the cool sequestered vale of life to hold the noiseless tenor of his way." Selecting thus a life of reflection rather than of action, he was a most diligent student, and among his more intimate friends he was as much admired for his extensive literary attainments as beloved for his social virtues. He was an active and zealous member of the Episcopal Church, and few lives passed in privacy have illustrated the Christian virtues more than his. The last years of our departed friend were clouded by misfortune and disease, but he was permitted to realize the truth of that blessed assurance: "Thou shalt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee."—Com.
