THE LATE CAPT. DAVIE OF THE MAIL STEAMER “SAXON”
The following account of the circumstances attending the death of Capt. DAVIE is extracted from a letter of one of the passengers, which came to hand yesterday:-
“Our last three days were melancholy ones, as the Captain during that time took ill and died. His indisposition was at first manifest on the Monday, but none of the passengers though it was anything serious. It was believed to be nothing more than an ordinary bilious attack. Subsequently it was said to be the Mauritius fever. On the Wednesday it was perceived that, whatever the character of the attack, the disease had evidently gone to the head; for one of the passengers on entering the saloon found him lying there with his feet on the table. The next day he told that passenger that he thought he was lying in his own cabin. On Thursday he was evidently worse, but still he moved about the ship, and got up on deck. In the middle of that day, two hours before the usual dinner-time, he sat down at the head of the table, telling the steward to bring on the dinner. On the evening of the same day he went on deck, enquiring for the doctor, and evidently in a state of great bewilderment went into the smoking saloon before dark and asked “What sort of candles are these you have here?” Of course there were no candles whatever. About ten o’clock at night he sat down at the saloon table, and one of the passengers asking him when he was going to turn in, he replied “Ah, it will very soon be a turn in with me”. But still none of the passengers thought his case a very serious one. Judge then of our surprise when the next morning we were informed that he was actually dead. A few minutes afterwards we heard the footsteps of the men who were conveying his body on deck. His remains were placed in the smoking room, and being near England, they were taken home and delivered to his friends fir interment in his native soil. I need not say what a gloom this cast over the ship’s company, intensified by the fact that at the time the weather was gloomy and increasing in violence, the glass gradually going down. His last hours were very painful, the disease having reached the head and his struggles requiring considerable effort to save him from self-injury. He was at the time of his death in the full prime of manhood, his age being 39. He bore the character of an excellent officer, and was in all respects a well constituted gentlemanly man. His death at last was extremely sudden, and from what I hear, he had a strong presentiment on the outward voyage that he would never return home alive.”

Friday 13 November 1868

DIED at his Father’s residence, Grahamstown, on the 9th inst, John MURRAY, aged 36 years. The Mother and Brothers of the deceased acknowledge gratefully the assistance rendered by kind Friends and Public.
