At Whitehall, on the morning of Friday last, Captain Joseph Morcom, aged 61 years. - It is rarely that we accord the death of a man more generally or deservedly esteemed. His simpilicity of manners, frankness of temper, warmth and kind-heartedness of feeling, and perf[?]tegrity of intention, were qualities which won for him, during life, a very high degree of general respect, and will cause his memory to be long and affectionately cherished. His death was awfully sudden. He had retired to bed apparently in perfect health, but soon after midnight awoke complaining of indisposition, and was instantly a corpse. Perhaps, however, had the manner of his removal been placed at his own option, it would scarcely have been otherwise. The sincerely pious feeling which are in an even current through his life leaves to his bereaved friends the most consolatory assurance that however brief might be his notice to enter upon another state of being, he would be found in readiness for the change. - Yesterday morning his remains were interred in the New Cemetery, Truro, and were followed by a numerous concourse of friends who were anxious to pay this last tribute to his worth.
