Details: Mr. Henry Rouse which took place at a quarter to 3 yesterday morning. The end was not, however, unexpected, for during recent months Mr. Rouse had suffered considerably from a complication of internal complaints, which had settled on his lungs. Drs. John Harris and J. B. Nash did all that medical skill could do, but they feared three months ago that this illness would be his last. The deceased wee a man of powerful constitution. Probably no man was better known in Newcastle, and certainly no one could have been more widely respected. He had no enemies. It was a pleasure to any old people to meet him, for he could talk of events of the past. and give days and dates for everything. It was on account of this that he was designated as the "encyclopaedia of Newcastle." He knew the day of the month and the year in which all his relatives (ae well ae many other people) wore born. He could recall any incident, however slight; he could describe life in Newcastle in the forties or fifties just as plainly as we see passing events of the present day; he could tell when every coal seam was opened out, and give the dates of all calamities such as shipwrecks and colliery disasters. He was in fact a perfect dictionary of dates. In the early days Mr. Rouse was a large shipowner, and resided in the house now owned by Mr. J. B. Wood. He subsequently went into an hotel in Perkin-street; but he is known to this generation chiefly as the proprietor of Rouses s Hotel, which occupied the spot where Mrs. Pearsons furniture warehouse now stands in Hunter street. He remained in this hotel for a number of years, but for a long time past he has lived the life of a retired gentleman -either at Dudley (where he owned a large estate), or at Hamilton. Mr Rouse was a very old member of the Masonic fraternity. He was 67 years of age at the time of his death, having been born on13th June, 1830, at the spot where Fields butchers shop now stands in Watt street. He was married to a sister of Mr. Clarence H. Hannell, and was thus related by marriage to Mrs. Joseph Wood, Mrs. W. F. James, Mrs. F. Clack, Mr. James Hannell, and Mr Arthur Hannell. The following members of the Rouse family remains to mourn their loss : Mr. William Rouse, Mr.Harry Rouse; Mrs. F. W. Clarke (of Merewether), Mrs. Andrew Nash, .Mrs. Harry Lesten , and Mrs. Joseph Gorrick. The two latter ladies came up from Sydney last evening. It is a somewhat remarkable coincidence that any deaths that have occurred in the Rouse -Hannell family have taken place In December, and always close to Christmas Day. The funeral will take place this afternoon.
