Details: DEATH OF CHARLES BOYDELL, ESQ, J.P.-The death of this much esteemed gentleman took place on Wednesday last, at his residence at Camyrallyn, near Gresford, and his funeral took place on Saturday, his remains being fol-lowed to their last resting-place by all of our principal residents, and a large concourse of followers. None have passed away from amongst us more highly esteemed and respected than Mr. Charles Boydell. Unostentatious in his intercourse with everyone, charitable in his disposition, ever anxious to conciliate wherever contentions arose, a friend to the poor, and always looked up to by all classes of the community with the greatest respect, he was truly beloved and esteemed by all. He was one of our oldest magistrates, and, ere affliction overtook him, he always took great pleasure in punctually performing his magisterial duties. His decisions on the bench always gave the most complete satisfaction: never, indeed, did we hear of any of his magisterial decisions being in any way impugned ;but, whatever his decisions were, they seemed to be taken as both correct and just by each party, and hence many sought for his advice and counsel in matters of difficulty. For many years Mr. Boydell took a very active part in public matters in the affairs of our district, was a stern opponent to the resumption of transportation when that question was agitating the public mind, was a member of our District Council for a lengthened period when in the prime of life, and in the midst of his career of general usefulness for the public good, he was laid aside by the afflicting hand of paralysis, and ever since he has been confined to his own dwelling, now for many years past. But even through this period his kindness of heart and charitable disposition have very frequently been experienced by the residents that surround Camyrallyn House ; and though his death was not unanticipated, it caused when the news was spread around, a thrill of anguishing many hearts, and many felt they had lost a sincere friend.
