DEATHS

At Milton, N.H. Mr. Barnabas Palmer, 96 - born in Cork, Ireland. He left his native country when about sixteen years old, and came to this, where he settled and became the father of a numerous family of sons and daughters - he lost an arm (right) in the battle of Louisburg, at that time a major in the British service - he was many years a member of the legislature of New Hampshire before and after the Revolution, a warm and zealous advocate for American Independence, and whist his voice was heard in our councils with wonder, he inspired and armed his sons for the field, whom he had the satisfaction to see return victorious.
