Details: Obituary - The telegrams published in Thursday's Mercury will have told all our readers of the lamentable coach accident that has suddenly caused the death of the Rev. Canon Stack of Balmain, Sydney - one of the most highly respected of all the Church of England clergymen in New South Wales. When we came to Maitland to assist in establishing the Mercury, at the close of the year 1842, we found the Rev. William Stack one of the most prominent citizens of the town in all public matters, and a most earnest and religious minister of the gospel. He was then a young man, in the prime of life, and a most vigorous useful life he led among us. Scarcely any clergymen within our recollection has secured so thoroughly the sympathy and respect and affection of all his congregation, high and low, as Mr. Stack then did. And he continued to live in Maitland for several years in the same way till his removal to Sydney - which caused very general regret and sorrow throughout the town at large. Since that time, except for an occasional visit paid toe Maitland, Mr. Stack has had no direct connection with the town, although he had maintained always the most friendly relations with many of its inhabitants. Mr. Stack was essentially a warmhearted man. Whatever he did he did with all his energy. And although, like all impulsive men, he was thus led at rare times to say hasty words and to perform hasty actions which caused unnecessary pain to others, and caused himself afterwards much regret on this ground only - yet this warmhearted energy was with im (as it often is with others) the very foundation of his great public usefulness, and of his valuable pastoral usefulness as a minister. No difficulty or anticipated obstacle holds back a man of the stamp from beginning a good work and Mr. Stack's Maitland life was full of examples of the good he thus effected. He was the more influential in this way no doubt because he never said much of his own merits, or repeated to others with expressed approbation his own words or deeds - he was not a vain man, or at all events he never openly showed vanity. Mr. Stack was a man of very good mental ability; he preached goods and original sermons, often throwing unexpected light on points touched upon, he wrote a paper, a letter or pamphlet with vigorours literary power; he was gifted with good conversational power, and was an attractive public speaker and lecturer. While in none of these points did he reach the first rank to our judgement, he combined them all to an extent but rarely witnessed - and his genial energetic spirit of work infused the more power into any of them in succession. The mortal remains of the lamented gentleman passed through West Maitland yesterday afternoon in the down train for Newcastle, on their way to Sydney. A large number of persons had gathered upon Elgin St. platform awaiting the arrival of the train, testifying by their presence the universal condolence which is experienced on behalf of the family so deeply bereaved. As the train drew up to the station, while it stayed to receive its passengers, and as it passed slowly away, the bells of St. Mary's and St. Paul's churches were tolled, and the chimes of St. Paul's rang their usual muffled peal on such mounful occasions. - Account of the accident that caused Rev. Stack - The coach from the Willow Tree to Breeza, last night, with the Namoi mails and four passengers, met with an accident. One of the passengers, the Rev. STack had his leg broken, and was otherwise so much injured that he has since died from the effects. Another passenger, a lady was very much injured also. Mr. Levi, the Jewish Rabbi and Mrs. Stack escaped injury. The driver of the coach was dragged a long distance and received severe wounds. He is now guarding the mails until assistance, which is going out reaches him. The accident happned about six miles beyond the Willow Tree. The injured passengers are being assisted by Mr. Taggart, a settler, whose conduct towards them is most praiseworthy. The Rev. Mr. Stack, had been for many years incumbent of Balmain, and was universally respect. When he met his death he was on a journey to Walgett acompanied by Mrs. Stack, to visit their son, having been summoned by telegram stating that the young man had met with an accident and was believed to be dying. Mr and Mrs. Stack left Sydney by steamer for the Hunter on Monday night

Details: This much esteemed clergyman, whose death has recently awakened in all parts of the country a feeling of deep sorrow, and who will long be remembered with affection by those who were well acquainted with him, was a native of Ireland. He was the son of a clergyman of the United Church of England and Ireland. Mr. Stack was educated at Trinity Colloge, Dublin, and on the completion of his studies was ordained in his native country. In 1838 he came to this colony, with hisfamily, in the same ship which brought out General Sir Maurice O Connell and the Rev. Mr. Sowerby, now Dean of Goulburn. The Rev. W. Stack was sent to occupy a sphere of duty in this country, as a clergyman of the church of his fathers, under the auspices of the Society for the Propogation of the Gospel His first colonial charge was West Maitland and the valley of the Hunter from that town upwards. A district of such extent, with numerous townships increasing in importance every year, must have tasked the energies of any minister of religion who desired to fulfil his duty to God and man. And the Rev.W. Stack did not spare himself in his effort for the spiritual good and social improvement of his charge. A writer in the Maitland Mercury of Saturday last,-who had known him from 1842 onwards to the time of Mr. Stack s departure from that district, a witness of his career, thus speaks of him - When we came to Maitland to assist in establishing the Mercury, at the close of the year 1842, we found the Rev. William Stack one of the most prominent citizens of the town in all public matters, and in most earnest and religious minister of the Gospel He was then a young man, in the prime of life, and a most vigorous, useful life he led among uns Scarcely any clergyman within our recollection, has secured so thoroughly the sympathy anc respect and affection of all his congregation high and low, as Mr. Stack then did. In the large district where he began his colonial career, he laboured with great zeal and self-denial until tho formation of the diocese of Newcastle, when his extensive charge was subdivided, one clergymen stationed successively at Musselbrook, Scone, and Murrurundi. Mr. Stack, when the new arrangement was made, removed to St. Peters Church, Campbelltown, in thediocese of Sydney, There he remained until 1855......
