A few days since, at Stephengelly, near Bodmin, where he had always lived, Mr. Thomas THOMAS, in the 79th year of his age, much regretted by his friends and neighbours. The deceased was well known in the neighbourhood as a poet, and when a youth, began to compose pieces on various portions of the Bible, as well as on local and general affairs, which were neatly written in a quarto volume, which will no doubt be carefully preserved by his family. This book has been borrowed by persons in different parts of the county, as well as in Wales, and is thought a rare production, especially when it is considered that it was nearly all written by night, the author being engaged on the farm by day, and having had no other education than that which farmers afforded their children 50 or 60 years ago, viz., just to read and write. His predilection for verse-making continued throughout his long life. A few months ago, to oblige a friend, he wrote an elegy on "death and the grave;" and last month he expressed his intention to write something on the barbarians who murdered Mr. NORWAY. It is a little remarkable, that up to the last, Mr. Thomas wrote with great ease, and his sight was just as perfect as when he was a young man.
