The circumstances attending the death of Mrs. McLACHLAN were particularly awful and distressing. Up to the moment of her decease she appeared in the enjoyment of good health, and had just completed the usual arrangements in her family for the evening’s repast, when she was seized with Apoplexy, sank upon the floor and expired, almost instantaneously. The deceased had only attained the age of  years and has left a family of several children to deplore the loss of that maternal regard, for which nothing can adequately compensate.

Thursday 3 October 1833
It is our painful task to record this week the death of Lieut. E.W. BLENCOWE, 75th Regt, who was drowned while bathing in the Keiskama River, near Fort Wiltshire, on the afternoon of Sunday last. It appears that deceased and Lieut. MOULTRIE had repaired to the river for the above purpose; that they swam across the stream, and were returning, when Lieut. MOULTRIE, who had taken the lead, hearing a splashing of the water, looked around and observed deceased apparently struggling in great distress and exhaustion. He immediately proceeded to his assistance, but his efforts were unsuccessful, as the deceased sunk beneath the surface; and the body was not found until several days afterwards. Deceased, who was in the morning of life, was an officer of great promise, and held in high estimation by his brother officers, and by all who were acquainted with him, for the general urbanity of his manners, and for attention to the duties of his profession. The corpse being conveyed to Graham’s Town, the funeral will take place this day.
