Died
In this city, suddenly (though for a long time his health had been precarious) Moses Young Esq. within a few weeks of being seventy years of age, a truly respectable citizen and at the time of his death attached to the Department of State. He was born in Ireland, but came at an early age to this country, in the year 1771. He was a soldier in our Revolution, when it was patriotism to take up arms and the character in which he fought no man has more invariably maintained - that of an American Whig. After being made prisoner at the Battle of Long Island, he went out as Secretary of Legation to President Laurens and was captured with him. In a later period of his life he was Consul General of the United States in Spain and, if we mistake not, acted for some time as Charge des Affaires of the United States in that country. On his return to the United States, he settled, fourteen years ago, in this city, where he has enjoyed the general esteem as an upright and most benevolent man.
