At Whitehall, on Saturday last, Capt. William FRANCIS. We have seldom recorded the death of one more generally respected, or deeply regretted. As a mine-agent Capt, FRANCIS had long been known, and his abilities highly prized, by an extensive connection. At a very early age, some of the most important mines in Cornwall were placed under his management, and the confidence reposed in him was amply justified by his close attention and sound practical judgment. His personal character was marked by a frankness of manner, manly feeling, and high-toned principle. A pulmonary disease had long marked him for the grave; but though cut off in the prime of life, the consolations of religion enabled him to bow to the divine will with perfect composure, and in the joyful assurance of a happy immortality.
