Died: On Wednesday last, William Rathbone Ashe, aged 15, second son of Joseph Rutter Ashe, landing waiter of this town. This is one of those appalling circumstances which throw a family into consternation. Youth! health! life! with the fairest promise of a long continuation of it, all gone in a few weeks, without a reason intelligible to finite understandings. He was a boy upon whom a parent's fondest hopes might have been placed. He had considerable talent, and had left school with, perhaps the most desirable of all acquisitions, -- a thirst for improvement.
