The deceased had undergone some hard and severe service in the recent Kaffir War, and was looking forward to his return to England, where we believe he possesses large property. The immediate cause of his death was, we are told, debility, originating in a severe attack of Influenza. His funeral obsequies were announced to take place this day, but from the inclement state of the weather will, it is understood, be postponed.

The Late Mr. W.M. FYNN Esq, JP
(Communicated)
This gentleman, who has left a widow and 5 children in very distressing circumstances, and whose family have been refused a pension or any means of support, has perhaps a greater claim on the Government than could well be produced by any other in the Colony. In 1828, under the patronage of Sir Lowry COLE, Mr. FYNN accompanied Captain AITCHESON to the great Zoolu Chief Chaka; and from there Mr. FYNN went to the Portuguese Settlement in Delago Bay, "Lorenzo Marquez", in search of the survivors of a wrecked ship. Mr. FYNN, having succeeded in his undertaking, remained five years in the Zoolu country, where he was so struck with the carnal usages practised on the Fingo clans by the Zoolus that he laid his whole mind to mitigate their sufferings: and the thousands of Her Majesty's subjects, who are now residents of Natal, and useful laborers to the white population, owe their freedom in a great measure to the exertions of this generous-hearted man. On one occasion the Zoolu army came down upon him and killed 25 of his party, Mr. FYNN narrowly escaped with his life, the whole of his property destroyed, and he returned a ruined man to the Colony. In 1833 Mr. FYNN got a situation in the Commissariat Department; but a reduction taking place, Mr. FYNN, though receiving testimonials from the officers under whom he served, he was 9 months without being employed; in 1834 he was again appointed. So much was Mr. FYNN esteemed that Cobus Congo, the Kafir Chief, was placed in his hands as a hostage to Government. In 1835 the war broke out: Col. (now Sir Harry) SMITH took Mr. FYNN from the Commissariat and got him the appointment of Superintendent of the Fingo Clans and Interpreter in the new province of Adelaide. Mr. FYNN acted as provisional Quarter-Master in the 75th Rgt and 72nd Highlanders. Mr. FYNN was sent to Chief Umhala at the conclusion of the war along with the diplomatic agent; in 1836 Mr. FYNN accompanied the military embassy under Captain DE LANCY to the Chief of the Amapondas, Old Faku, who always showed a great regard not only to Mr. FYNN but to all his countrymen. Mr. FYNN was sent to Umhala, who had been wounded by a soldier in the back by a stab of a bayonet in a time of great excitement, and as Umhala was then, as now, a very powerful chief, it was thought advisable to conciliate him, and Mr, FYNN was sent by Colonel SMITH as the most suitable person.
   In the latter part of the war 1835-36 it was agreed by the chiefs Macomo, Tyali, Suto, Eno &c to meet Sir H. SMITH – all to be unarmed – in the Keiskama Bush. Mr. FYNN accompanied Sir Harry: Macomo and Tyali were to go to Fort Cox with Sir Harry leaving Mr. FYNN as hostage; Macomo's white horse having broke loose from Fort Cox and came galloping back, about 200 armed Kaffirs rushed from the ravine within 60 yards of where the conference had taken place, and, imagining treachery from the English were on the point of shooting Mr. FYNN. In fact during the whole of the war Mr. FYNN was scarcely ever from the Colonel's side. And when the Lieut-Governor Sir A. STOCKENSTROM appointed Mr. FYNN as Diplomatic Agent East of Kei, Sir Andries' parting address to Mr. FYNN had these words, which even then showed the privations Mr. FYNN endured, and is a proof of the sagacity of the Lieut-Governor (it would be well if Sir Andries had followed the dictates of his own mind on every similar occasion, and not lent himself to a party injurious to his own reputation and the enemies of the colony), Sir A. said "I do regret that it is so far in the interior, for a man with a family, where you will become comparatively isolated away from all society". Alas! The widow and orphans find themselves forgotten where they formerly had relations and friends. In 1838, Faku having been tampered with by the marauding Chief N'Campai to fall upon and destroy Kreli's people, the Gaikas, and the Tembos, Mr. FYNN succeeded in settling the matter amicably, and thus war on our border was prevented. Several successive Governors having been convinced of Mr. FYNN's zeal and abilities, wrote letters of approbation which are in the hands of the family. In 1846 Mr. and Mrs. FYNN, with 6 children, had to fly for their lives, their property destroyed, and everything burnt. The Chief of the Tambookies, Umterara, arrived with 400 men armed with guns to convey Mr. FYNN and his family to a place of safety in the colony; but Mr. FYNN thought that by going among the Amapondas he might prevent those numerous tribes from joining the war party; and during the whole of that war Mr. FYNN remained in that country, suffering all the privations which a European family must suffer cut off from all communication with civilized life. This war again Mr. FYNN and family lost all except their lives, which under Providence they owe to the hero of Kaffirland, Lt-Col. EYRE, who rescued them by making forced marches to their relief.
   The late Mr. FYNN having spent such a period in remote Kaffirland, and being hidden from public notice, had the miseries of three wars to pass through, and found many young men promoted over his head who could not have a tithe of his claims upon the government; this must have greatly grieved him. And now after his death it was thought that a grant from the Kaffrarian fund, or a pension to his widow might be granted, but His Excellency refused both applications; and if this is to be the fate of the zealous servants of government, what inducement does it hold out for a man to devote a long life in such a service? Surely there ought to be some source from which such distressing cases might be relieved without making the widow and children of a magistrate the subject of a public appeal. Thank God in this Colony there is no-one in absolute want, but if the civilians provide for their own poor, the Government ought not to suffer the poor belonging to them to want. I wish some abler pen would take up this subject and I make no doubt the future Parliament would grant some relief to cases of this very distressing and very peculiar nature.
