Communication.
In Berlin, Adams county, on the 9th of April, 1830, Jefferson Stevens, in the 27th year of his age.
He is gone! Who, a few days ago, was amongst us, mingling in the special circle, with friends, acquaintances, associates, and companions.
In this event we have lost one dear to us, and beloved by all for his obliging, friendly, and inoffensive character; and society one of its choicest members, in regard to morality, temperance, industry and frugality. In the prime and vigor of life, has he (by the interposition of a divine, and omnipotent hand,) been removed from amongst us, leaving us to mourn his irreparable loss; and having taken leave of all earthly things, friends, acquaintances, associates, and companions, as well as society in general, are left to deplore his early exit.

His remains were interred on Sunday the 11th, at the White Church, (formerly Yellow Church) attended by a numerous concourse of friends and acquaintances.
