Died at Salem on Sunday 9th instant, Mr. Samuel BONNIN, aged 64 years. Deceased was one of the founders of the Albany Settlement, having arrived in this colony with the British emigrants of 1820. Though led since by business to various parts of the colony, his residence has chiefly been at Salem, where, as he had wished, he died. He was a man of considerable natural talent and of most active mind; while his hospitality, his social temper and his kindliness of heart will long be remembered by his family, and all within the circle of his acquaintance. The disease which terminated his earthly career was most painful, but he bore his suffering with the fortitude, the resignation and the hope of the Christian. His end was peace.
