A Waterloo Veteran. —An old man named McCabe died at the Old Men’s Refuge, Napier, last Thursday, aged eighty-two. He was the son of a soldier in the C6th Regiment, and when old enough, joined the same regiment, and fought by his father’s side at Waterloo. He was afterwards a non-commissioned officer of the guard over Napoleon at St. Helena. He died very suddenly when in the act of mending a chair. Admiral Seymour.— Admiral Sir Paget Beauchamp Seymour, now commanding the combined fleet at Ragusa, first came into notice in New Zealand, when he commanded H.M.S. Curacoa during the Taranaki war of 1860. Commodore Loring, of the Iris, was then in command of the station, and the Curacoa was laid up at Auckland, Captain Seymour going to Taranaki in command of the Naval Brigade and the Light Company of the 65th. He there did good service, and received a serious wound. He was subsequently appointed to the command of the squadron in these seas on the retirement of Commodore Loring.
