Mercury, Sep 6
THE REV DR PHILIP
    About 2 o’clock on Wednesday last, the 27th August, the colony lost in the decease  of the Rev Dr PHILIP, at Hankey, whither it had been thought advisable to remove him about a year ago on account of his increasing bodily infirmities, one who has taken a prominent part in what may be called the history of this land. He had reached the age of 76 years and although his bodily powers had rendered him almost helpless, yet he retained his mental faculties unimpaired, until within three days of his demise, when a kind of stupor came over him, induced by mortification which then made its appearance in his legs.
   On the following day, his Remains were interred in the family vault in the garden, by the side of his beloved wife, followed by a large concourse of men women and children belonging to the place. The services which were of a most solemn character, where commenced with prayer and singing, before the body was removed from the house, by his son in law, the Rev Mr. CHRISTIE, who then delivered a most impressive address on Death and the resurrection of the dead, from the 15th chap.of 1st Corinthians, which had been previously read. After a prayer was offered by Mr. KELLY the procession moved towards the burial place, singing as it went an appropriate hymn for the occasion. This imparted a melancholy interest to the solemn scene. On arriving at the place, Mr. W. METELERKEMP, who had headed the procession, addressed the people in a most heart-searching and eloquent manner, from these words, in the 7th verse of the 13th chapter of Hebrews, “Remember them who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow”. On Sunday, a further improvement was made of this event, when three services were held. That in the morning was preached by the Rev Mr. CHRISTIE, from the 26th verse of the 5th Job, “Thou shalt come to they grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season”. In the afternoon the Rev. T.D. PHILIP addressed them from Revelations ii2 10v, “Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life”. The services of the day were closed by the Rev J. KITCHINGMAN, who took his text from Rom.ii 7. “To them who by patient continuance in well doing, seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life”.
