Deceased was attending to her usual business up to 8 o'clock on the evening of the previous Saturday, shortly after which she was seized with the fatal malady which terminated her earthly
existence - and her afflicted family were compelled to witness her last breath - without even the mournful satisfaction of hearing her dying words or receiving her parting blessing. She was in the 53rd year of her age. As a woman of business, perhaps, none ever excelled her; she was one of the most affectionate and exemplary mothers; a kind and dutiful wife; a sincere and pious Christian and a credit to her sex. To her bereaved family her loss is irreparable and is deservedly and universally deplored by a numerous circle of friends and the community at large.

DIED at Graham's Town on Friday 22nd inst, Mr.Joseph RICHARDS, a native of Truro, Cornwall, aged 43 years. Deceased was one of the settlers on 1820 and had passed through the various gradations of an emigrant's life with credit to himself and advantage to his adopted country. Though of retired habits and seldom moving out of the domestic circle, he was justly esteemed by
those who knew him for his general intelligence and scrupulous integrity in all his dealings. The disease which terminated his mortal career was consumption, greatly aggravated by being driven from his farm, with the loss of all his property, by the Kafir irruption of 1835. For the last twelve
months of his life his sufferings were great, but he bore them with the firmness of a man and the patience and resignation of a Christian. A widow and a family of seven children are left to deplore this most afflictive bereavement. To his personal friends his memory will be ever cherished as a
bright example of steady attachment and for an exhibition of what the poet meant when he recorded that "An Honest Man is the Noblest Work of God".

London in the year 1819 the party of British settlers afterwards located at Salem, but did not accompany them; he arrived in this country on business in March 1840 and fell victim to a disease of the liver, brought on or hastened to a crisis by intense mental anxiety. His memory will long be cherished in the hearts of his bereaved family, and an extensive circle of acquaintances
and friends.
