Details: A Newcastle District Pioneer Newcastle, Wednesday. William Howard Greenaway, one of the oldest and most-esteemed residents of this district, died at his residence, Church-street, yesterday, at the age of 87. The intelligence did not cause any surprise, as of late it was most apparent that the old gentleman was nearing the end of his long life. Mr. Greenaway lived in Newcastle for over half a century, and probably knew more about the early history of the district than any living I individual. His father built the South Head I Lighthouse some 65 years ago, and deceased assisted in the work. From a builder he became a landowner and squatter, and for nearly a life time deceased has been living quietly on his income. Of late years his only business has been the agency and stewardship of some estates. He I used to tell how he had cut grass for fodder in what is now George-street, Sydney, and remembered Newcastle when the tide came up to where the railway station now stands. Although twice I married deceased never had issue, and his second I wite died some years ago. Archdeacon Greenaway, of Grafton, is a younger brother of the deceased

Details: The Mr. J.J. Harpur.-On the 2nd instant there passed away from among us a gentleman who, although he had long dropped out of the ranks of public men, at one time filled, a somewhat prominent part in the political affairs of New South Wales. Mr. Joseph Jehosaphat Harpur. Some thirty years ago, when this colony was slowly emerging from a state of official despotism, and gradually progressing towards the enjoyment of s constitution, Mr. Harpur, a young native of the country was one of the foremost advocates of political liberty. In those davs when to speak boldly was almost a crime, and when political freedom was regarded as but an idle dream, Mr. Harpur stood forth to assist those patriots who dared to demand that the colony should govern itself, and his rude but forcible eloquence, with his indomitable perseverance, brought him into the very brunt of the battle. With speech and with pen Mr .Harpur constantly advocated the cessation of transportation, the introduction of responsible government, and a liberal and equitable mode of distributing the lands of the country, with a view to promote settlement and occupation. He was very popular in the Hunter River district, where he was born, and represented the constituency of Patrick's Plains in the Legislative Assembly for several years. Mr. Harpur was a man of considerable intellectual powers, which were cultivated by careful study, and his writings exhibit great force of expression and vigour of thought, not unworthy of a family of which his brother Mr. Charles Harpur, the poet was a distinguished member. During the latter part of his life Mr. Harpur filled positions in the Civil Service, and was in fact engaged in the performance of his duty as Inspector of Conditional Purchases up to the evening of the day before his rather sudden death. In private life Mr. Harpur was very much esteemed.

First Name: Rev. Irving

Date: 10 July 1875
Place: Melbourne
Source: Gippsland Times
Details: We regret to have to announce the death of the Rev. Irving Hetherington , which took place at the Manse, Hotham street, East Melbourne, at a quarter-past 9 o'clock on Monday morning. He had been in failing health for a long time past. A few days ago a severe cold settled upon him, and it was soon apparent that he could not rally. On Sunday he passed into a semi-unconscious condition, from which he never recovered, and died at the hour named. In point of ministerial seniority, Mr Hetherington was much the oldest Presbyterian clergyman in this colony, his connexion with the Collin street Church dating from April, 1847. He was the son of a Scottish farmer, and was born at Whaite, in the parish o f Ruthwell, Dumfries shire, on the 23rd July,1809, and was therefore 66 years of age at the time of his death. After his ordination he was employed as a missionary in Edinburgh. In the early part of 1837 he was sent out to Sydney by the Colonial Committee of the Church of Scotland. His first charge in New South Wales was that of Singleton, which included Patrick's Plains. This was a pastorate 100 miles square, and its oversight involved an amount of labour which none but a young man could have accomplished. To ride 50or 60 miles a day in the bush for several consecutive days, carrying provisions and sleeping at times under a gum tree, was no uncommon experience in a country minister's duties at that time. After Mr Hetherington's arrival in Melbourne, to succeed the Rev. James Forbes at the Scots' Church, he took a great interest in the negotiations for the union of the Presbyterian Churches, and worked assiduously for its accomplishment, which he witnessed in April, 1859. From that time he officiated as clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, with the exception of one year, when the honour of the moderator's chair was conferred upon him. In consequence of Mr Hetheringtons advanced age and feeble health, arrangements were recently made for his retirement from the active charge of the congregation (his status as senior minister to be retained) on the arrival of the Rev. Charles Strong, who is on his way to this colony in the ship Bin Cruachan He died, however, in harness. Mr Hetherington leaves four grown-up children. His wife, it will be remembered, died, suddenly two years ago. His unaffected manners and kindly disposition endeared him to numbers outside of his own denomination, and there are few old colonists whose loss will be so widely mourned. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon

Details: The death of another very old resident of the district, in the person of Mr Joseph Hill, occurred on Sunday morning last at about 2 a.m. The deceased was a native of Leicester, in England, and was over 82 years of age at the time of his demise. He had resided in this district for some 45 years, and was for many years in the service of Mr John Alford, at Maryvale, Jerrys Plains, where he was regarded as faithful and trustworthy. Of late years, the deceased had resided with Mrs Atkinson, of George-street, Singleton, and, on account of his great age, was very feeble, mentally and physically. He had been attended, occasionally, by Dr. Bowman, but it was evident for some time that a natural senile decay was setting in, and that the end was approaching. Deceased was tenderly cared for by Mrs Atkinson up to the time of his demise, and the mortal remains were interred in the Anglican cemetery yesterday.

Details: Death of Mr. William Hobbs. We regret to have to record the decease of Mr. William Hobbs, who, for the past five years and a half, occupied the position of Governor of the Gaol in this town. For a considerable time past Mr. Hobbs was in a failing state of health, (we believe from an affection of the heart and liver), and about six months ago he obtained a month s leave of absence, and visited some other parts of the colony, but experienced little benefit from the change. Latterly it became painfully evident that he was gradually sinking, and on Sunday, the 2nd instant, his illness assumed an alarming aspect, and Dr. Morton then pronounced that all hopes of his recovery were at an end. He lingered, however, under much pain, until Friday night last, when a violent attack of his disease again came on, and death put an end to his suffering about half-past two o clock on Saturday morning. The deceased occupied the position of Chief Constable in the Northern districts for many years, and for two or three years prior to his appointment to Wollongong, he was Governor of the Gaol at Windsor. Mr. Hobbs was very much and deservedly respected by all who knew him. In a sentence, he was a most efficient and assiduous officer, an affectionate husband and father, and an unobtrusive and esteemed member of society. He leaves behind him a widow and a. large and respectable family (several of whom are comparatively young), to deplore their loss. The remains of the deceased were interred in the Church of England Burial-ground last Sabbath, having first been taken into the Church. The Rev. Dean Ewing conducted the service, and a large number of the inhabitants paid their last respects to the departed by following his remains to their final resting-place.

Details: THE LATE MR. CHARLES KEMP. A DEEP feeling of regret has been occasioned in this city by the death of Mr. Charles Kemp, for many years a partner in the proprietary of the Sydney Morning Herald. For some time past he had been suffering from disease of the heart, which terminated fatally on the, 25th of August. Mr. Kemp was an Englishman by birth ; he emigrated to this Colony with his parents in 1825. Shortly after attaining his majority, Mr. Kemp be- came a contributor to the Sydney Monitor, and in a few months accepted a permanent engagement on that journal ; he afterwards joined the reporting staff of the Sydney Morning Herald, and continued in that vocation until 1841, when he joined Mr. John Fairfax in purchasing the paper from Messrs. Stokes and Stephens. Mr. Kemp proved fully equal to his new position : his business habits, kind dis- position, and thorough honesty, gained him the respect and goodwill of all with whom he came in contact. In 1853, Mr. Kemp, having realised an independence, 'disposed of his interest in the Herald, and since that time has been more prominently before the public. For several years he discharged the duties of a magistrate with the most thorough impartiality, and in 1860 he was elected Member of the Legislative Assembly for Liverpool Plains, but lost his seat at the ensuing general elections, chiefly owing to his refusal to disguise his real opinions, or promise to stultify his- judgment by adopting the popular cry, and was soon after ap- pointed to a seat in the Legislative Council, which he held up to the time of his death. As a private citizen he devoted much of his time in developing the resources of the Colony ; he was, for several years chairman of the directory of the Australian Steam Navigation Company, and, on his retirement from that office, received a very hand- some testimonial in acknowledgment of his ser- vices; he was also a director of several other Iocal commercial institutions, and a fellow of St. John's College. He was warmly attached to the Church of England, and his munificent contributions to the cause of religion were only equalled by his un- ostentatious acts of benevolence; the claims of poverty never appealed to his sympathy in vain. In a leading article in the Sydney Morning Herald his former partner, Mr. John Fairfax, thus bears testimony to his worth:-"The name of Charles Kemp will be mentioned amongst us with lasting veneration. Affectionate in family life-upright in business-incapable of anything tortuous or mean liberal in the employment of his wealth-firm in his friendships as in his convictions-active in the promotion of all that was beneficent ;-such h was. A good man has fallen. Alas! one of our was. A good man has fallen. Alas! one of our best, kindest, most useful citizens has passed away for ever. " Mr. Kemp was buried in tbe Church of England cemetery, atFix this text Newtown; his remains were followed to their last resting place by a very large number of the principal inhabitants of this city, and by many of his former employs, by whom he was deeply and deservedly regretted.
