DEATH OF MR. W. HERAPATH. We have to record the death of Mr. Wm. Herapath, the well-known toxicologist, of deceased gentleman, who was seventy-two years of age, had only been ill for a short time, and expu-edon Thursday even- ing at his residence in the Old Park Bristol. Mi. Herepath was the son of a maltster, and for some little time followed the occupation of his father. He had, however, a strong inclination for scientific pursuits, and he devoted himself to the study of chymistry. Nearly forty years ago he gained a reputation by his analysis in a case in which a woman named Burdock was convicted at Bristol upon circumstantial evidence of poisoning. In the more celebrated case of Palmer, of Rugeley, Mr. Herapath was a witness, and he had also been concerned in many other important criminal and civil trials. Mr. Herapath was also a decided politician. In the period of the Reform agitation of 1831, when the disastrous riots took place at Bristol, he was the president of the body then known as the Political Union," and he exerted such power as he possessed to stop the tumultuous proceedings which then took place. On the passing of the Munici}jal Reform Act Mr. Herapath became a member of the Town Council; but with advancing years he ceased to be a democrat, and was at last expelled from the Radical ward he had long represented. Mr. Herapath was in the com- mission of the peace, and was the senior magistrate for Bristol. ^—
