ANDERSON REDDING died. on the 9th of February, 1843 in the 80th year of his age. No sooner had he arrived at the vigor and elasticity of manhood, than he was enrolled among those of the New World who determined to be free, and contended against the tyranny of British oppression. He served under his countryís banner with a patriotís zeal and devotion. He was present at the consummation of American liberty, the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. The recollections of that glorious day lingered long in his memory, a rehearsal of which often caused him to feel as though the ardor and buoyancy of earlier days were yet fresh upon him, while a big round tear would fall and moisten the old manís cheek
