THOS. McBRIDE DEAD.  Attorney Thomas McBride died last evening at his residence on South Main Street, after an illness of only a few days.  The cause of his death is due to a cancer on his lip that has been steadily eating his life away for years.  The deceased was born in Monroe Twp., Nov. 20th., 1827, and was therefore in the 63d. year of his age.  He had a common school education, which he obtained near his birth place.  Mr. McBride taught school and studied law alternately and was admitted to the bar in June, 1857.  He began practice at Defiance and was Prosecuting Attorney of that county for four years.  In 1863 he returned to this city and opened an office with Judge May, with whom he was associated until April, 1868.  The deceased then formed a partnership with Barnabas Burns & Son.  This partnership existed for a number of years and it was dissolved.  Mr. McBride was recognized as the leading criminal lawyer of the Richland County bar and had an extensive practice.  He was equally at home in defense or prosecution and many a guilty man quailed at his rigid and searching cross examinations.  He was eloquent at times to a marked degree and many of his speeches contained gems of thought and bursts of oratory that are unequalled in the history of the local bar.  He was a man of strong convictions, strictly conscientious and ruggedly honest.  He was among the leading local Democrats and was always in demand for speeches during a campaign, when his eloquence and power of denunciation could be brought in fine play and was made most effective.  Socially he was a very pleasant gentleman and under his brusque exterior  he carried a warm hart, and a fund of information, reminiscent, etc.  He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church.  He was married in 1857 to Miss Barbara E. Brandt, who still survives him.  Six children was the result of this union.  The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon from his late residence at 3 o'clock, Rev. D.J. Meese officiating -- Daily Shield of Monday.

J.M. Hunter will tender his resignation as superintendent of the Infirmary to take effect April 1, and will go on his farm in Bloominggrove Twp.  B.F. Palmer may succeed him. -- Shield.
