          Departed this life, at his late residence in Hendricks township, Shelby county, Indiana, on Friday the 18th inst., at 2 o'clock p.m.,  Mr. John McCrea,  from disease of the gravel and from general debility, in the seventy-second year of his life.
          It was our good fortune to have been personally acquainted with Mr. McCrea for several years past, and we can thrughfully say, that in all the relations of life, as a friend, citizen and father, he was a straight forward honest and good man. -- He was emphatically the same to all men, treating all equally alike.  He was esteemed and beloved by his neighbors, acquaintances and relatives, and his loss, in the community where he resided is sincerely deplored.  It is not long since we felt the warm pressure of his hand in friendly greeting and enjoyed his open-hearted hospitality in social intercourse.  But he is gone to a happier home in the spirit land, and we shall see him no more on earth. -- His funeral took place on last Sabbath, at the Baptist church in Hendricks township, and the sermon was pronounced by the Rev. Mr. Smith of the Presbyterian church of Shelbyville, in the presence and hearing of a large congregation.  His mortal remains were interred in the grave yard of the Baptist church.  He leaves, mourning his loss, a large family, for all of whom, out of his abundant means, he made suitable provisions by will, and a very large circle of friends and relations, who mourn his death.  An aged and a good man has gone from our midst, not unwillingly but gladly and calmly to his bright and glorious home in heaven.
