Our well known and highly esteemed correspondent, Jacob Stauffer, of Lancaster, Pa., died on the 22d of March, in his 72d year. As artist, botanist, engraver, photographer, printer, soldier, civil public servant, editor, - his self-made career has been as remarkable as it has been an honorable one; and one which has exercised a wonderful influence on the young in the community in which he lived. Few have passed away of late who will be more lovingly remembered, even in remote corners of the world than Jacob Stauffer.
