kuew and loved this distinguished old
gentleman, during his sojourn in

he is no moro. On tho 15th ult., at
Brussels, bis birth-plnco, in his ninety
first year, ho expired. General Le
Hardy *was a soldier uudcr Napoleon,
aud took part in the battle of Waterloo.
Under LeClcrk, in thc expeelition
against Sau Domingo, he took au active
part. Ho struck for Bclgiau indepen?
dence in 1830, but bis Republican
honesty did not suit the monarchists,
and bo suffered imprisonmeut nt their
bauds. He sought a moro genial politi?
cal atmosphere in this country, and
lived for sometime as did a group of bis
connections, in Georgia, aud in this
city. Ho wont back to Belgium in 1856,
with tho hope of coming to us again,
but advanced years baffled his hopes.
Ho was a thorough gentleman of the
good old type, and his genial and kindly
iutercourso will bo missed by many.
