DIED at Grahamstown on Friday evening, the 8th inst, Mrs. SATCHELL, wife of the Rev W. SATCHELL, Wesleyan Missionary at Bathurst, aged 32 years.
Mrs. S arrived in this colony about nine months ago, since which period she resided at Bathurst, where she had greatly endeared herself to the inhabitants, as well as to the surrounding neighbourhood, by her amiable manners and pious deportment. A short time since she was seized with the disorder – the Typhus fever – which terminated in death. Every means was adopted that human art could devise for her recovery; she was removed to Graham’s Town, in order that no interruption might take place in the attention of her medical attendant – but the disease baffled human skill – and at length, after enduring extreme suffering with exemplary patience, she departed this life in the meridian of her days, with a hope full of immortality and eternal life. It is intended to improve the event in two sermons, one of which will be preached in the Wesleyan Chapel at Graham’s Town, this evening, at 7 o’ clock, by the Rev W.J. Shrewsbury, and the other at Bathurst on Sunday evening next, by the Rev S. Palmer of Salem.
Thursday 21 February 1833
We are happy to be able to state that Mr. S. MANDY, who arrived last night at Graham’s Town from the Orange River, has brought certain intelligence of the safety of three of the Traders who were reported to have been killed by Matelikal’s people. Mr. M. saw Mr. W. WARD, who was returning to Port Elizabeth, accompanied by one of the French Missionaries, who, we stated, were forced by the invading tribes to quit their station – and he informed him that a few weeks since he (Mr. W.) parted from Messrs. WHITTLE and GIBSON, both of whom were on their way towards the Colony. The other Traders we before named have not been heard of. Great complaint was made of the conduct of Adam KOK, who, it is alleged, does not scruple to plunder almost every Trader who approaches his neighbourhood.

Thursday 6 June 1833
Notwithstanding a former Advertisement, the Undersigned is again under the unpleasant necessity of requesting all persons who have not his special permission to desist from sporting on his Property. He cannot help expressing much surprise at any Gentleman Shooting Game of any description whatever, so near his home that the smoke and report of the gun might be both seen and heard from his breakfast room window. Every one ought to know that where game is found so near a house, much pains must have been taken to get it there in the first place, and in the second, if he wished it destroyed or lessened, the Proprietor is Sportsman enough to do it himself.

On the 8th instant, Mr. T. CUMMING, aged  years.
(From a correspondent) Mr. CUMMING was descended from an ancient and respectable family in Scotland. Unfortunately for him his grandfather was an active leader in favor of the Pretender, from which the greater part of his paternal estates were, by the policy of the [times], conveyed to another branch of the family. His father, after several fruitless attempts to recover the estates, was appointed band-master of the Gordon Highlanders, after which he and his seven sons formed a band for the Rifle-Brigade, under the command of Sir William STEWART. After the resignation of his father, Mr. CUMMING succeeded him, and served throughout the whole of the continental war, to the peace of Waterloo. Having left the army and being passionately fond of music, he was prevailed upon by Lieut.Col. BRERETON to come to this country to instruct a band for the Royal Africans; and on the breaking up of that regiment, he engaged with Colonel SOMERSET to instruct a band for the Cape Corps, which situation he held until compelled by the loss of his eye sight, about 6 years ago, to resign. He was a man possessed of strict integrity, true piety and a generous heart; his illness was induced by ossification of the heart.
