On Friday night last, at 12 o'clock, MR. JOHN ELLIS, of this place, at the advanced age of almost 93 years.

The deceased was born in Swanage Dorset, Isle of Purbewck, England, on the 10th of October, 1763. For almost thirty years he was a resident of Johnstown. Some two years ago Mr. Ellis received an injury from a fall, and has been confined to his bed almost ever since. Surrounded by children and sympathizing friends, he descended to the grave as a shock of corn fully ripe. He long outlived the generation in which he was born, and at last borne down with the ever increasing infirmities of old age, he sleeps with his fathers.--His death was as gentle as a infant's sleep, and gave hope of a glorious resurrection.
