In the death of Thomas Fowler, which occurred on Sunday, his family suffers an irreparable loss and the community loses a much respected member. Mr. Fowler possessed many commendable traits of character; was kind-hearted, friendly, accommodating, peaceable, industrious and honest; took a deep interest in passing events, and was well posted in the current news of the day. He frequently wrote short poems for public occasions, usually marked with a message of pleasantry, to the gratification of those who heard. If communities were composed of men as worthy as Mr. Fowler, there would be little cause for complaint.
