Died on the 16th inst at St. Lawrence Farm, Mrs. Catherine MUNDAL, the beloved wife of Mr. Jas. MUNDAL Sen, aged 58 years and 21 days. Her family are natives of the Isle of Wight. To the Editor: Sir, It has been my painful duty to send you for insertion in your paper the death of Mrs. MUNDAL, the wife of one of the original Settlers. It may interest some of your readers, and perhaps some distant friends, to learn that her end was peace. Mrs. M. was long afflicted, which she bore with Christian fortitude, and died trusting in her Redeemer, and a firm adherent to the Church of England. Her funeral obsequies were attended by a long train of attached friends and relations, both Dutch and English, male and female, including her own children and some grandchildren. This funeral was rendered the more remarkable by the good arrangements of Mr. QUINN, the undertaker, and it being one of the first in the neighbourhood, conducted with all the solemnities customary in our Fatherland. The funeral service was read by Mr. BOON, the Catechist of the English Church, and in the evening he improved the solemn occasion by delivering a discourse, from the 16th chap. Of St.Luke, 31st verse, "And he said unto him if they hear not Moses and the Prophets neither will they be persuaded though one arise from the dead." Some present said it was good for them to be here, that it was better to go to the house of mourning rather than to the house of feasting. The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord. I send you this for insertion out of the high esteem I have for the family of the deceased. With all respect, Sir, I shall subscribe myself An Attendant Fort Beaufort
