At Bartholomew Hospital, London, on Wednesday, the 15th instant, CAPT. JOSEPH ODGERS, of Camborne, aged 72 years. It appears that the deceased left Cornwall for Bristol in August last, and remained there till about the middle of December, when he left for London. On his way there he caught cold, which, at his age, and by subsequent exposure to the dense fogs of the metropolis, brought on cough, shortness of breath, and pain of the side, rendering him low and weak, though not confining him to the house. About the latter end of March, he expressed a wish to be taken into the hospital, and was soon after received. In this place all possible attention was paid to his case, and at first the physician told him that he expected he would be raised up again in a short time. He spoke much of the kind treatment he received, and continued in the hope of recovery till within a few days of his death; when, finding his weakness to increase, he seemed convinced that he should die, and ! on the day already mentioned, at four o'clock, a.m., he departed this life, passing out of the world like one in sleep.
