Death of an old citizen. --We are pained to learn that Otis Manson, Esq., formerly for forty years a well known resident of Richmond, died on the 9th of April last, at the residence of his son, Dr. O. F. Manson, in Granville county, N. C., at the ripe age of seventy- two years. His remains were brought to this place for interment. Several years since Capt. Manson removed to North Carolina, where his last hours were spent. No man, perhaps, in his sphere, was more useful to the community
ly or partially planned by him. When living here, he was to the mechanic a guide and a friend, and was universally beloved by them.
As a parent, he was noble, generous, and unselfish, and lived and died without an enemy.
As old Mr. Enders once remarked in our hearing, "Otis Manson was too honest to get rich," yet that very qualification will long keep his memory green in the breasts of those (and they were many) who knew and loved the man while living, and lament him now that he is no more.
