WILLIAMSBURG, January 12.
On the 30th of December last died Mr. DEKAR THOMPSON of Falmouth. His last sickness was tedious, painful, and for some time before his death with little hope of recovery; yet during the whole severe trial, he preserved that uniform serenity of temper, which so strongly marked his character through life. - -In the prime of age, and with a fair prospect of worldly felicity, he apparently quitted both with cheerful resignation and Christain hopes:
The death-bed of the just! Is yet undrawn
By mortal hand; it merits a divine:
Angels should paint it, Angels ever there;
There; on a post of honour and of joy.
