Death of Charlotte Bronte's father. --The Rev. Patrick Bronte, the rather of the popular authoress, "Currer Bell," died at the parsonage in Haworth, on the 7th of June.--He was born in the year 1777, and was consequently 84 years old at the time of his death. He died comparatively alone, passing from earth as he had lived in it. A cold, gloomy, unsympathizing man, he had the reputation of being, and will be remembered as, the father of one of the rarest families that were ever born to man. His name dies with him, but the fame achieved by the suffering, long patient, persevering, spirital "Currer Acton, and Ellis Bell," is imperishable.
