Longevity.- On Wednesday last, at Little Birch, in this county, Thomas Stallard, in the 109th year of his age! It is remarkable that he never, till within the last fortnight, had any serious illness, and had the use of all his mental faculties to the last moment. He reaped his own wheat last year, and, about two year previous, he was seen hunting on horseback, and enjoying the sport of the chase with as much gusto as any sportsman in the field. His breakfast was usually toast and cider, of which beverage he drank freely till his decease.
