Details: THE LATE EDWARD GOSTWYCK CORY, ESQ, J.P-A paragraph, at the close of my communication which appeared in last Saturday's issue of the Mercury, announced the serious illness of Mr. E. G. Cory, the esteemed Warden of our district, whose death, as then anticipated, took place at his late residence, Gostwyck, on Friday afternoon, the 7th instant, after only a few days serious illness, at the ripe age of seventy-six years. The late Mr Cory was a very old colonist, he having arrived in the colony first, nearly half a century ago, with his father and brother, and in accordance with the land laws of the colony then in force, was allotted certain quantities of land, and selected the beautiful estate of Gostwyck, Paterson River, as his homestead, which he at once began to improve and embellish. After a residence of nearly twenty years in the colony, he in company with the late Mrs. Cory, visited Europe, and after a Sojourn of four or five years, he returned to the colony. Shortly after his return to the colony Mr Cory was placed in the Commission of the Peace, and had held his position as a magistrate of the territory, up to the time of his death for many years. Mr. Cory held a seat in the district council of Paterson, and at the death of the late J. B. Boughton, Esq, the first warden of the council, Mr. Cory was appointed to succeed him In that capacity, and he had held that position ever since, now nearly twenty years. In political matters Mr Cory always took a warm interest, although never taking a leading part, but in every struggle for the representation of the district in the councils of the country, he was always most energetically engaged on behalf of his party, and the candidate which he supported, his principles throughout were of a conservative nature, and consequently untenable amongst the great body of the community, hence his want of success in his political movements. In every public matter of leading interest for the welfare and the prosperity of the district, Mr Cory took an active part; on the magisterial bench his decisions have given general satisfaction, and on more than one occasion manifestations of approval in his magisterial capacity have been publicly convened to him, by the voice of the general community. In private life Mr. Cory was most highly esteemed, courteous to all, and as a neighbour most obliging For some two or three years past Mr. Cory's health has been noticed by his friends to be continually failing, frequent attacks of illness had much weakened his usual robust constitution, and at length, when the recent complaint came on, be soon sank under it, having never rallied from the first. His funeral was first appointed to take place to-day (Monday), but after more mature consideration, it was finally decided to take place earlier, and yesterday (Sunday) morning was the time fixed. The funeral cortege left Gostwick shortly after ten a m ; the procession was a very lengthened one, comprised of a number of carriages and over a hundred horsemen, as well as a number of persons on foot, and amongst those present we noticed nearly all of the magistrates of the district, most of the members of the District Council, and all the principal residents of the district. The procession having reached the entrance of Saint Paul's Church, the coffin was carried into the church by a number of the tenants of the deceased gentleman, the pall-bearers being G. J. Frankland, Esq., F. Reynolds, Esq, R. Studdert, Esq., and Captain Dunn. The impressive service of the Church of England was then read. The body was then taken to the grave at the entrance of the Church doors, and lowered into its final resting place, the remainder of the funeral service was then intoned, and the large assembly slowly and solemnly dispersed.
