Death of Judge Cross.

Judge Samuel Cross, one of Sacramento's pioneer and best known citizens, died at his residence in this city yesterday forenoon at about 11 o'clock, after a very brief illness. He was upon the streets as usual but two or three days previous, and was not regarded even yesterday morning as seriously ill. His death resulted probably from suspended vitality rather than from any protracted disease. He was born March 12, 1812, and hence was in his 75th year. His birthplace was Londonderry, Ireland, but his ancestors were from France. At the early age of 7 years he came to America, and having located in Pennsylvania, attended school, and subsequently engaged in teaching until 1837, when he removed to Missouri. There he was engaged again in teaching, and in the study of law, until 1849, when he came to California, and commenced the practice of law in Sacramento, in which pursuit the remainder of his life has been here spent. The deceased was a member of El Dorado Lodge, No. 8, I. O. 0. F., and Pacific Encampment, under the auspices of which the burial service will undoubtedly be performed. The funeral will take place from the Congregational Church at 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon, and Rev. Dr. Benton, who has been telegraphed to, will, it is expected, conduct the services.
