On Wednesday week, at Graisely Green, the residence of the Rev. G. W. KEMPSON, near Wolverhampton, in the 88th year of his age, Mr. Thos. Pendrill ROCK, of Brewood, surgeon.—The name of Pendrill was given to him as a descendant of the honest and high-minded Staffordshire miller of that name, so justly celebrated in the story of the flight of Charles II. from the battle of Worcester. The day of the fatal contest he was standing at the door of his mill, when proclamation was made of a thousand pounds reward to any one who should intercept the Royal Fugitive, at that moment concealed in his house. The miller heard and felt the temptation, but the duties of hospitality prevailed over every other consideration, and he was silent.
