Mr. Aglionby, of Scar Foot, had died on Wednesday at noon. He was buried on the Saturday morning following, in the churchyard of Yoresett Church, beside those of his fathers who had been buried there before him. He was laid low with all pomp and respect, and not a town, village, or hamlet in the dale but sent its quota to the following. He had been one of the institutions of the dale, one of the inseparable accompaniments of every gathering, and every event almost, that took place in it; and if he had not been tenderly loved, he had been deeply honoured and respected. Therefore gentle and simple came from far and near, and saw him laid to his rest.
