Death of Mr Benjamin Moorhouse. — It is with much regret that we have to record the death of this gentleman, which look place in Timaru on Friday morning last. Mr Moorhouse was one of the early settlers, coming to Canterbury three or four years after the first settlement was formed, and in 1855 we think it was, he took up a station on the Rangitata (Shepherds' Bush), where until just previous to his death he remained a permanent resident. In his younger days the deceased gentleman studied medicine, but did not we believe take out a diploma. The knowledge so gained however, was, especially in the early days of settlement invaluable to those who chanced not only found an excellent physician, but also a kind hearted friend. Without undue eulogy we can honestly say that few men are we believe so entirely unselfish and so generous hearted as was Mr Moorhouse. To do a kindness seemed to be almost his everyday wish, and whether it was to assist some traveller over the turbid and dangerous Rangitata, (and he has done so hundreds of times at the risk even of his own life), or whether it was to alleviate pain in the sick chamber, Mr Moorhouse was always ready, always willing. To say that he will be missed does not half convey the feeling with which the news of his death will be received.- To those who knew him, and to those who have experienced many kindnesses from his hands, the feeling will be one of most heartfelt regret, His death was not unexpected, for he had been ailing for months past. He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn his loss. The funeral takes place to-day at halfpast two o'clock.

Moorhouse. — The funeral of this gentleman took place on Dec. 16, The funeral cortege left Melville house at three o'clock, and proceeded to St. Mary's church, where it was met just outside the main entrance by the Rev G. Foster, the incumbent, who led the way into the church, reading the portion of Scripture usual on such occasions. After the group of mourners had taken their seats, the first portion of the solemn service on the Burial of the dead commenced, and on its conclusion the procession was formed outside m the following order : first, the hearse with, the undertaker and his men iv front, the on foot on each side of the hearse were the pall bearers, viz, on the left hand side, the Hon. J. B. Acland, Mr Woollcombe, R.M., and Mr C. G. Tripp ; on the right hand, Mr Wigan, Mr H. Philips, and the Hon W. L. Peter, and following in the rear also as pall bearers, were Messrs W C Beawick and T W Hall. Immediately behind the hearse were the chief mourners on foot, amongst whom were Mr V. S. Moorhouse and two lads, respectively brother and sons of the deceased, Messrs Wigley and ML Studholme. After which, walking two and two were some thirty gentlemen, personal friends. The rear of the procession was closed by some half dozen carriages belonging to gentlemen m and around Timaru. In this order the procession readied the cemetery, where, the mourners having gathered round the newly made grave, and the coffin being deposited over the brick chamber especially prepared for its reception, Mr Foster read the concluding portion of the beautiful burial service. The coffin having been previously lowered into its place, a last look taken before the grave was finally vaulted over concluded the solemn ceremony.
