DIED on the 2nd instant at his residence in Graham's Town, after a protracted illness borne with truly exemplary patience and resignation, Mr. John McKENNY, in the 52nd year of his age, deservedly regretted by a numerous circle of friends. His career, as an old resident on this frontier, has been marked with integrity and fraught with usefulness. To his sorrowing connexions he ever proved a watchful guardian, and a loving relative; for whose loss nothing can give them consolation, but the confident and holy hope that the resignation with which he gave up his soul into the hands of his Creator may be looked upon as an assurance that he is admitted into the realms of everlasting bliss.
