      Death of Mr. John Innerarity

      Our community was greatly shocked last evening at the intelligence of the sudden death of our venerable fellow citizen, John Innerarity, Esq. His advanced age and growing infirmities had for some time past been regarded by Mr. Innerarity himself as earnest admonitions of the approach of the great destroyer, but his presence among us had become so familiar to all, and was so closely identified with the recollections of many long years, that the intelligence that he was suddenly struck down, was startling in the extreme, and it is difficult to realize that the places that have known him so long, and intimately, shall now know him no more forever.

      Though he had for some time past experienced in a more marked degree, the natural effects of age, yet a recent visit to New Orleans had, to some extent, served to revive his powers and, up to the hour of his death, he was enjoying comparative comfort, and his friends had reason to hope that he would yet be spared to them for many years, when suddenly without a moments premonition while with his family, the impending summons came and, without any apparent consciousness of the bitterness of the last struggle, he sank to his rest, embalmed in the loving hearts of his family, and leaving his memory to be honored by the whole community in which he lived.

      Mr. Innerarity was the last surviving partner of the distinguished commercial house of Panton, Leslie & Forbes Company so well known in Florida at the commencement of the present century, and for many years past, had lived in retirement upon the fruits of his arduous and successful habits in early life. He had improved the advantages of an early education by the assiduous cultivation of his mind, and few men in our community could be found more thoroughly imbued with practical and elegant learning. He was well informed in all subjects, both in science and literature, and his exceeding courteousness of manner and benevolence of heart, rendered him the charm of the social circle to which he belonged.

      But better, far better at consolation to the bleeding hearts of his friends, and as an example, we may add that though our venerable friend was summoned to his account with a suddenness so startling, for the summons he was not found unprepared, nor had he postponed his preparation to his last hour. He was a true and humble son of the church to which he belonged, and had sought, in her ordinances, with care and diligence, a preparation for the great change which he had so long foreseen, with too prophetic an eye, awaiting him.

      Honor and peace to his beloved and venerated memory.
