From our own correspondent
Winburg, 2nd July, 1867.
Reported death of M. PRETORIUS.
You have had so many past and coming events from me of late, that eventually, this 2nd July, 1867 I have nothing else to event-ilate than that PRETORIUS is dead, fallen another victim to an imbecile, ignorant and cowardly policy. I would not for much have recorded against me, the consequences that have followed this policy; and which good sense and a little pluck would have counteracted…

DIED at his residence, Bloemfontein, on 19th inst, Mr. James DICK, a native of Ayrshire, Scotland, and long a resident of this town, aged 50 years.

We regret to have to announce the demise of Mr. James DICK, the well known general agent - an old and well-to-do citizen of this town. This sad event occurred at an early hour on the 19th inst. (Tuesday). Mr. DICK, as a correspondent justly remarks, was for many years looked upon as one of the [“institutions”] of the town. Till about three years since the deceased was most indefatigable in the pursuit of business and money-making, as well as in the promoting of any scheme which he considered condusive to the interests of the community. He took a leading part in the establishment of the Bloemfontain Bank, of which he was a director, and […..] the creation, until very recently, [a commissioner of the town Municipality]. The late Mr. DICK had resided in the town for some 15 years, and at his death must have been about 50 years of age. He was a native of Ayrshire, Scotland, but had resided both in [India and Natal before settling] in this town. Mr. DICK, [……….] till November 1855 [ was the energetic and untiring general clerk] of the late Mr. Charles Urquhart STUART. On the demise of that gentleman Mr. DICK commenced business for himself, as a general agent, ..[several illegible lines]. Mr. D. leaves no heirs or relatives in South Africa, his late wife having died without issue in January last. It is, however, known that he has a brother, sister and other erelatives in Scotland. The funeral which was numerously and respectably attended, took place in the English burial-ground on Wednesday afternoon the service being impressively read by the Rev. D. CROGHAN, Church of England.
