On the 14th inst. Hon. William H. BATTLE departed this life, full of years and honors. He was undoubtedly one of the purest public men in any age or country, and one of whom our State had just cause to feel proud. Elevated to the Bench so far back as 1840 and for so many years prominently before the public, he ever maintained a character of spotless integrity, and unsullied purity. Eminent as a jurist, learned in the law impartial in its administration, he lived honored by his fellowmen, and dying has gone to receive his eternal reward.
