Deaths

Rev. Thomas Harris Angell, formerly of R. I., died in Medford, Sept. 19th, 1859, aged 26 years. One of the first who graduated at Tufts' College, he had just commenced his ministry with bright promise. He was gentle, meek and affectionate--of fervent piety, and a lover of God, of the church and of humanity.

Rev. Joshua Flagg died in Dana, Nov. 10th, 1859, aged 86 years, 6 months and 20 days--after a ministry of more than 60 yean, and was the oldest Universulist minister in the State. Though of rude vigor and controversial spirit in his early days, when persecution and violent opposition were met on every side, yet his devotional spirit and earnest sincerity in later years won general regard, and the clergy of his town generally attended his funeral and paid due tribute of respect to his memory.
