On the evening of the 31st day of last month, departed this life Dr. BERNARD HORNET, of New Kent county, a native of Burgundy in France, the many amiable qualities of this worthy man, will long be remembered in the neighborhood of his death, where he resided nearly twenty years. As a physician and surgeon, he was confessedy(?) eminent, as a husband, he was tender and affectionate in an uncommon degree, as a master, he conducted himself as a father and friend, and as a friend and companion, he at once discovered those enlightened principles and sentiments, that knowledge of men and things, that ardent love of liberty, which together with a good and benovolent heart, which he possessed in a high degree, form a character not common in very modern time.

This is just a tribute paid to the memory of this departed friend of human nature, by one who had an opportunity of well knowing him the period above mentioned.
