FUNERAL OF THE LATE CHARLES RODNE* MORGAN ESQ., OF RUPERRA CASTLE, FOR BRECON. Yesterday morning, the interment of the remains of the late Charles Rodney Morgan, Esq., of Ruperra Castle, took place at the family vault, at the parish church of Bassaleg, amidst the deep grief of his bereaved relatives, and the sincere regrets of a large concourse of persons* (many of whom had known the innate kindness of his dis- position), who had assembled to witness the sad obs°quieS of a gentleman so young, and of such bright promise. Mr. Morgan died at Marseilles on Saturday afternoon; the 14th of January and cxactly one month yesterday (the day of his funeral), the intelligence was received, by electric telegraph, in this town. The delay in the funeral was occasioned by the protracted period occupied in the I transit of the corpse, by water, from Marseilles to London* obstacles existing in France to tLe conveyance of the deatf by railway. At half-past two o'clock, yesterday morning, the body was brought in a hearse, by the South Wales Railway, to i Newport, and at once conveyed to Tredegar Park, reaching there at five o'clock the same morning. At twelve o'clock, the funeral procession set out from Tredegar Park, under the direction of Mr.BVirtue, the experienced undertaker, of London, in the following order, the carriages being froIJt the establishment of Mr. Niblett, Bristol :â ^r- Virtue, the undertaker; State Lid of Feathers, borne by attendants ''â¢>⢠THE BODY; The valet of the deceased, followed by the agents and servants at Tredegar Park; Carriage, containing Capt.
