OBITUARY. - Died, on Saturday, the 7th inst., after a brief illness, William Panton, Esq., county clerk aged 57 years. The deceased was born in Blessington County of Wicklow, Ireland; but emigrated to this county in 1834. He lived for many years in Kilbride, where he was widely known and highly respected as an honest and impartial magistrate. During his residence in this town he had endeared himself to all, being a man who left behind him no enemies, but many friends. On the death of the late Frances Hamburg he was appointed the county clerk, which office he held to the time of his death. He was a man of liberal opinions, and proved his loyalty by turning out in 37 for his Queen and country. He was a zealous member of the order of Freemasons, and squared his life by its immortal principles.
