Died, at his residence in this county, on the 25th of October, Mr. James Macomb, in the 83rd year of his age. The deceased was a native of Ireland, but came to this country when quite a young man, and had been a resident of Augusta for about sixty years. He sustained through life the character of an honest, upright man and good citizen, and has left amongst us a large circle of conexions and worthy descendants.
