DIED at Graham's Town on Monday the 30th ult, Mr. Thomas Price ADAMS, aged 64 years. Deceased was one of the emigrants of 1820, having come hither with that party, at the head of whom was Mr. John BAILIE. Few amongst the Settlers was better known, as well by his harmless and often amusing eccentricities as by his kindliness of heart and scrupulous politeness of deportment, and which never yielded even to the most depressing and untoward circumstances. Dame Fortune and he were almost ever at variance, but amidst all her buffetings - and these were not few or light - his cheerfulness and blandness of manner remained unimpaired. Scarcely more propitious were the Muses, whose favors he courted most assiduously, and who as often jilted him most egregiously. It will afford satisfaction to his friends to know that he finished his earthly career with quietness and resignation, in the bosom of his family. His name will ever be associated with and be cherished with esteem by 'THE EMIGRANT FATHERS OF THE ALBANY SETTLEMENT'.
