Obituary of a Reporter. --Thomas William Bowlby, the correspondent of the London Times, who was killed by the Chinese near Pekin, was born in Gibraltar, but educated in England, at a county academy. Tom Taylor, the dramatist, was his chum at school.--Bowlby studied law for some time, but in 1848 was engaged by the London Times as special correspondent, and sent to various parts of the Continent, particularly Hungary. Subsequently he was connected with Jullien in his musical enterprises. He was about a year ago re-engaged by the Times, to proceed to China as special correspondent. The terms of his agreement were £1,500 ($7,500) a year, with liberty to draw upon the concern to any amount that might be required for the efficient discharge of his duties. Mr. Bowlby proceeded to China in the same steamer as Lord Elgin and Baron Gros, with whom he was shipwrecked. Mr. Bowlby was about forty-three years old, and has left a widow and five children, most of whom are of tender years.
