At St. Austell, on the 4th instant, from spasmodic cholera, after a few hours of intense physical suffering, Mr. Thomas BELL, principal manager of the Great Polgooth Tin Mine. This gentleman, we conceive, requires some further notice than a mere obituary register. His loss, we fear, will be severely felt by the industrial mining population of his district. He was the means of the restoration of the Great Polgooth Mines, after being wholly abandoned by their former proprietary. These tin mines are now the most productive in the county, and employ about a thousand individuals. Mr. BELL possessed a strong and vigorous intellect, undaunted nerve, and unflinching perseverance; and in spite of the most insuperable obstacles thrown in his way, by disappointed and interested parties, he was signally sucessful in developing not only the metallic treasures of the above ancient mine, but if life had been spared, there is little doubt he would still further have thrown open the capabilities of the splendid mineral and mining district of St. Austell. It is too often the case that many of our sucessful mining, railway, and manufacturing magnates assume personal hauteur, or aristocratical reserve towards their less fortunate companions or dependents. Such was not Mr. BELL's character; he never divested himself of his natural, open-hearted freedom, and agreeable suavity of manners. He was, we believe, a native of the great northern border county of Northumberland, and in early life practically informed himself of some of its varied mining and mineral resources.
