Details:DEATH OF CANON GLENNIE. A PEACEFUL END. It was in no way a shock to Brisbane to learn yesterday that Canon Glennie had that morning passed peacefully away, at the house at Wynnum, where for the past eight months he had resided, under the loving care .of Miss Gillett. It cannot be said that his death was unexpected. For many years now the gaunt, bent old figure of the Grand Old Man of Queensland's Church of Eng-land's ministers has reminded one that the Angel of Death Is very near at times, and the feeling one has Is almost one of gladness that there was " no moaning of the bar when he put-out to sea." His end suited the last years of his life. For many years now his one-time familiar face and voice has been missed from the services at St. John's, and at the last even from the streets he had watched grow from mere bush tracks. For Canon Glennie had seen the colony blossom from the babe In arms to the full-grown daughter of the 'mother-land. Forty year he served that God as only a true teacher of Christ's doctrine can serve It-giving freely of his own, undergoing hardships Innumerable for the sake of the gospel, and working all his, to spread the truths that he was enjoined to. To those who only knew him in his later years, a few facts about his life are indispensable before one can grasp the full significance of all he has done for the deep striking roots of religion in Queensland. Far back,-when this century was still in Its teens-to be exact, in 1812-Benjamin Glennie was born in Camberwell, London, The son of principal in a school there. He was educated at King's College, London, of which the Right Rev. Lord Bishop Londsdale was then the dean. From there he went, in the natural course of events, to Christ College, Cambridge, where in 1847/he took his degree. Next year he came out to Sydney, and was almost immediately ordained deacon at Morpeth by Bishop Tyrrell, then Bishop of Newcastle, who likewise consecrated him priest in the following year (1849)). He became incumbent of Moreton Bay .(as the colony, was then called) in 1848, and of Darling Downs in 'the same year. The former he dropped at the end of two years,-the latter at the end of ten more-taking over charge of Warwick in 1860. Here he remained until 1872. Then followed Drayton (1872-70) and Toowong (1878-77). In 1863 he was made an archdeacon of Brisbane, and became Examining Chaplain to the Bishop in 1875. Both of these positions he held until 1886,when, on the advent of Bishop Webber, he resigned, owing to advancing years, which rendered his duties rather too severe a tax upon his strength. He was then appointed the first honorary chaplain In connection with the newly-consecrated Cathedral of St. John. From that time he has lived in quiet retirement, his gentle, kindly nature helping him to bear the knowledge that he had but to 'wait " until the day come and the shadows flee away."
