The Late James P. Freret

We are certain that the death of none among our leading citizens could create more general and deep-felt regret, than that of the late James P. Freret, which took place yesterday. No man among us was more esteemed for his sterling qualities as a man. He belonged to a noble race of Creole gentlemen which, we fear, is fast passing away, distinguished for lofty pride of character, generous souls, with no mean instincts, and full of kindliness of temperament and manners. For many years Mr. Freret was an active and leading politician in the Whig party, which delighted to honor him with public marks of its confidence. He was warm in his advocacy of his principles, but his native bon hommnio would not admit of his regarding his opponents as personal enemies. With very many of them induced his social intercourse was most intimate.
He was at one time Sheriff of this parish, having been elected over that very popular gentleman, Mandeville Marigany, after the most animated canvas ever witnessed for a local office.
He was a native of this city, distinguished through a life which had almost reached the term of three score years and ten, for devotion to its commercial interests, having been one of the first of our citizens to established cotton presses.
