DIED at Sidbury Park on the 20th instant, aged 26 years, eldest Son of Richard DANIELL Esq, JP.

We sorrowfully announce the death of the eldest son of Mr. R. DANIELL of Sidbury, after a trying and painful illness of only three days. We are imperfectly acquainted with the cause of this painful bereavement, which is said to have been occasioned by a fall from his horse, in which the spine was injured. It is impossible to commend too highly the amiable disposition and honourable character of the deceased. He was exemplary in all the relations of life in which he had yet been tried, and his loss will fall not only very heavily upon his family, but will be severely felt by all who were honoured with his friendship or had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He was yet in the morning of his life, being only 26 years old. He died on Friday. His funeral was to take place yesterday. We deeply sympathise with Mr. DANIELL and the bereaved family in the mournful calamity with which it has pleased Divine Providence to afflict them.
[Transcriber's Note: Although not mentioned by name, the deceased was Charles Crawford DANIELL]

The local reader will be concerned to hear of the death of Mr. John NORTON, who after amassing a very considerable fortune on this frontier, afterwards sustained a vicissitude which reduced him comparatively to beggary. He had just landed once more upon his native shore and immediately proceeded to the house of Mrs. Benjamin WHITECHAPEL, but not finding her at home, was proceeding to the house of Mr. MARCUS, a relative of hers, where she was. On the way he was met by Mr. MARCUS, to whose house they were proceeding together. When they had got within five minutes walk of the house, the deceased fell down in a fit of apoplexy. He was revived and raised by the aid of a little cold water, placed in a cab and conveyed to Mr. MARCUS' house, but his hour had come and he scarcely lived to be taken in to an apartment. Such has been the end of the career of a man who ten years ago was living in this town happy and in affluence and surrounded by a happy family. However death, and domestic and other misfortunes made fierce inroads upon this happiness before his death. His two eldest sons died during the Kafir war; one of them from a disease brought on in the exertion he made for the common defence, whilst serving in one of the local levies. His wife did not long survive them. Deceased leaves four sons and one unmarried daughter.
