Hon. Augustus Burt, and Mary (Laff

mont, llth September 1SU5, and died,
after a short illness, of diptheria at
his residonce in St. Albans, December
2()th, 180H, in tho !19thyearof his age.
Tho-death of this gentleman, so high
ly endowed with mental gifts, in the
prime of life and in tho midst of a
brilliant professional career, has awak
enod no ordinary degree of regret
among a largo circlo of friends and
acquaintances. Ono of this number,
who ontortained a great regard for his
many oscellent qualities of head and
heart, must be pardoned if ho furnish
iib best ho may, a brief sketch of his
professional character.
Jnmos S. Burt was a man of no or
dinary stamp. He had tho advantage
of an excellent academical education
and a careful professional training un
der parental supervision. He attended
the Franklin County Grammar School
at St. Alhnns whilo it was under the
ohargo of Mr. Almon Lawrence. Sub
