On Tuesday afternoon last, from the effects of an asthma, an old shoe-maker, named ALLEN, who resided in Brook street, Lower Deptford, leaving £6,000 in cash and notes, and a similar sum invested in the Bank of England. The deceased lived in the most penurious manner, and during his illness would not apply for medical advice, nor have any one to attend upon him, for fear of the expense. On examining the boxes and drawers in his house, money and documents were found to the amount of £12,000. The notes were discovered hidden between the leaves of books, and in some bags were penny-pieces and farthings to the amount of £ 40, which must have been hoarded up for many years, as most of them were mildewed. A will was also found, bequeathing the whole of his immense treasures to his relatives, about ten in number. The old man was a bachelor, and a native of Scotland, and in the 70th year of his age.
