A very Old person. --A black woman named Phillis, who belonged to Mr. E. O. Watkins, of Chesterfield, recently died at the extraordinary age of one hundred and eighteen years! At the age of one hundred and ten she married her third husband. She retained her senses in remarkable vigor to the time of her death. Her afflicted husband, who must have been devoted to her with a sort of idolatry, wandered off after her death and has never been heard of since.

It may be called a black tragedy.
