Details: Last morning a veteran pioneer of Dungog passed over to the great majority, in tbe person of Mr John Lloyd, for many years honorably es-teemed aa a resident of the northern rivers district. The death of Mr Lloyd was far from being unexpected, his life having, as a matter of fact, lingered in the balance that divides the known from tbe mighty unknown for several years. Of course hope struggled against hope in the affect- tions of his devoted family, but con- sidering that he outlined the span of life, being in his 84th year, his demise was only to be looked for, in the natural order of things. The late Mr Lloyd had been a resident of the Dungog district for over half a century, having come here from the Paterson River for the purpose of establishing a tobacco manufacturing business, which be conducted with considerable success, until the imposition of a heavy excise duty caused him to relinquish the venture, and seek for other avenues if investment. In Dungog he was very successful and enjoyed an excellent name for probity, straight forwardness, and honest dealing. Together with a few others, he was instrumental in estab- lishing the local School of Arts, and was a valued member of the committee of that institution for many years.

First Name: Rev. William

Details: THE LATE REV. W. McINTYRE, M.A. Our readers will learn with regret that the Rev. William McIntyre, late minister of St. George s Presbyterian Church, Castlereagh st, Sydney, is dead. For the last two or three years he suffered at intervals from an affection of the liver, and on Friday last he was prostrated by a severe attack of this disorder, which terminated fatally on Tuesday morning. Mr. McIntyre came to the colony under the auspices of the Rev. Dr. Lang, about the year 1834. and during that gentleman s subsequent absence from the colony, Mr. McIntyre occupied his pulpit At that period the Presbyterian Church in the colony existed as the Presbytery of Sydney in connection with the Church of Scotland and the Synod of New South Wales. Mr. McIntyre s influence in the body was then great, and while the Rev. Dr. Lang was away on a visit to the old country, he succeeded in effecting a union between the two sections which then existed. In the year 1841 or 1842, he accepted a call from the Church at West Maitland, in connection with which he laboured for upwards of twenty years with much success. During his pastorate the commodious church which now exists in that township was built, as also the High School - the two structures involving a cost of about £8000 or £9000. The disruption of the Established Church in 1843, was not without its influence on the Presbyterian body in this colony, and three or four years later it, to some extent, found its counterpart here. Mr, McIntyre, while holding the view that it was the duty of the State to countenance and support religion, was, nevertheless, opposed to any interference on the part of the civil government with the organisation and independent action of the Church, and he strongly condemned the system of indiscriminate endowments to religious bodies which existed in this colony. He accordingly seceded from the Church, and in conjunction with the late Rev. John Tait, of Parramatta, and the Rev. Colin Stewart, he formed the Synod denominated the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia. With that church he remained identified up to the date of his decease, and he was its Moderator for the present year. In 1852, Mr. McIntyre re visited his native land on a mission connected with the church in this colony, and whilst there he procured a master for the High School, and on his return to New South Wales he was accompanied by two clergymen of his own faith - the late Rev. Allan McIntyre and the Rev. J. McCulloch, of Raymond Terrace. Eight years ago, Mr. McIntyre accepted the pastorate of the congregation worshipping at St. George s. At the beginning of his ministry there the debt on the edifice amounted to £14,000, but we understand that, lately through bis exertions, nearly the whole of it has been paid off. Mr. McIntyre s ministrations at St. George s were continued without interruption. Be preached there twice on Sunday week, and he also conducted the ser vice on Thursday evening last. The rev gentleman always took a warm interest in matters relating to church doctrine and discipline; and, while he was most uncompromising in the maintenance of what he thought to be the strict truth, yet, happily for those who were associated with him, his unyielding adherence to principles was never suffered to embitter the relationships of private life. It will be seen that his residence in this colony extended to nearly a period of half a century; and during his long, laborious, and useful career, he has worthily upheld the character of an educated Christian gentleman. His integrity and the consistency of his conduct won for him the respect of even those who differed from him in opinion ; the fidelity and zeal which distinguished him as a minister of religion, the urbanity of his manners, and the benevolence of his disposition, as well as other estimable qualities, lent a charm to his solid and unostentatious character, and endeared him to his people, some of whom, we believe, regard his loss almost as a personal bereavement.
