DEATH OF A HERO. There died on Friday in the Liverpool Northern Hospital a man who played a conspicuously brave part in connection with a historic wreck nearly forty years ago, namely, the loss of the Australian liner Royal Charter, inward bound, which, with 500 souls on board, and about X400,000 in bullion, was driven on the rocks in Red Wharfe Bay, Anglesey, in a terrific gale. A seaman on board named Joseph Rodgers swam through the surf to the shore, < carrying a line which he had fastened round his body, and by means of the communication thus established between the wreck and the shore 36 lives were saved. Since that occur- rence Rodgers has been engaged in the copsting trade. He was taken ill on Thursday and succumbed on Friday in his 68th year.
