On Tuesday, the 3rd instant, of malignant scarlet fever, aged 24, John WILTON, a compositor in the Western Times office. The deceased was formerly a pupil of the Deaf and Dumb Institiution, and to the benefits conferred by that excellent establishment he was indebted not only for a mitigation of the terrible calamity with which it had pleased Heaven to visit him, but also for the formation of habits and the instilment of principles which made him, in his sphere, a valued member of society. His mind was deeply impressed with religious convictions, the fruits of which were abundantly manifest in a zealous discharge of all his duties, the strictest regard for truth, and the utmost rectitude of moral principle. He was the son of a labourer of Liskeard, and had it not been for the aid of the Institution, his mind would probably have remained a perfect desert; void of any useful attainments, and he would have been condemned to a life of miserable destitution - a burthen upon those on whom the outcasts of nature and of fortune are thrown for a niggardly protection. This passing notice is given of his brief history as an act of respect for his memory, and of admiration for those benevolent individuals to whom the Institution owes its origin, and on whose fostering care it still relies for support. Their reward is with them. (Western Times)
