It becomes our sorrowful duty to record the decease of the Rev. Raymond A. Henderson Rector of Trinity church in this city. He died on the 16th after a few days severe illness, and we truly say his exit is as unexpected as it is unwelcome. As a pastor, Mr. Henderson was faithful, every ready to attend to any call, or to perform any duty devolving upon him. He was a worthy citizen, and it is to his ardent zeal, his untiring perseverance, and his own munificence, that the city is chiefly indebted for that neat edifice, the Episcopal Church. We deeply sympathize with his afflicted relatives, and his bereaved church and congregation.
We hope some abler hand will favor us next week with just tribute to his memory.
“Unveil my bosom, faithful one,
Take this new treasure to thy trust,
And give these sacred relics room
To seek a slumber in the dust.”

Died In this city, on the 18th inst. Adolphus Lewis, eldest son of Charles Robiou, Esq., aged 12 years and one month. This bereavement to this parents to his brother to his sister, is an afflicting stroke, and many connected by no ties of blood feel sincerely the loss of a promising boy, who appeared destined to be the joy of his family, and an ornament to society.
In this city, at the residence of Mrs. S. P. Anderson, on Sunday morning last, Miss Hannah Agnes Maguire, aged 22, a native of Ferrmaghnah, (or Armagh) Ireland, and resident about four years in America, Beautiful and accomplished, she came to St. Augustine as a teacher in devotion to her duties, her health became impaired — for months she has lingered with Christian resignation, awaiting another and a better world. Though far away from the land of her birth, and the sympathies of relatives and early associates, she had become here endeared to kind and kindred hearts, who watched over her with a parent’s solicitude, and who mourn over her departure as a mother mourns for her lost child.
An obituary, received too late for to-day, will appear in our next.
On the 20th inst, Miss Mary Magdalen Pamella, daughter of P. B. Dumas, Esq., aged 18 years.
On Tuesday evening last Miss Theresa Olivia daughter of Peter B. Dumas, Esquire Thus have their family been bereft of two beautiful girls within the short space of three days.
On Monday evening of a lingering illness at the house of Mr. Benjamin Hearn, near this city, Lieut. Col. Simon Beckham, aged 50 years. He was an officer in the last war against those atrocious enemies of American Liberty, the British, and as a volunteer officer against the Indians in Florida, has acquitted himself most handsomely. In private life Col. Beckham was a man of honor, integrity, and uprightness, esteemed by all who knew him.
Died On the 19th day of October last with the prevailing fever, William T. Campbell son of the late Capt. Duncan H. Campbell, formerly of St. Marys Ga aged 9 years. For goodness of heart, energy and intelligence poor William was surpassed by none of his own age and fondly did his friends rely upon the promises of his boyhood — promises of useful and prosperous years, which Death has shut out forever. Conscious of his approaching dissolution he said, “all remedies are vain; it is my destiny, and I am not afraid to die.” His far distant father could not receive his last sigh, but his thoughts were with her, and he called upon her name. Every effort which affliction and skill could devise was made for his relief, but the Destroyer was inexorable, and would not release his victim.

On the 6th, Captain J. W. McCrabb, USA Quarter Master of this post. Few officers stood in higher estimation with the army than Captain McCrabb; with the citizens generally he was popular and beloved; few men had a more happy faculty of endearing themselves to all with whom they are brought into communication.
On the 8th Dr. Andrew Anderson, President of the Life and Trust Co.

On the 10th aged 18 Sarah, youngest daughter of the late James and Anna Ferrand of N York ad a beloved relative and member of our family. Having been deprived of both parents in early childhood, she was tenderly reared by the indulgent care of an affectionate grandmother and always taught to love her distant uncle and aunt. Just one short year ago she was introduced as a child into our family, since when all the fondness of parental, filial, and fraternal love has been fully realized as each pang of our bereaved hearts testifies. Youthful, amiable, cheerful, lovely, sympathizing, ever ready herself to administer comfort to the sufferings no wonder the interest of strangers and friends was awakened in her behalf; but all that skill or friendship could do could to arrest the insatiate archer.
