To THE EDITOK. Sir, —Those of your readers Who' havW'read the paragraph in your paper relating- tri to the sad calamity in which throe ,-of/the younger portion of the Kennedy family lost their lives, will, I am a f t / sense of deep regret. Inhere are many who can well remember their first visit to Canterbury, when the young man and the two young ladies spoken of were' aspirfhg f ’ to public favor j : as a boy; no one ■ could • be. more promising; his rendering of “ Hulling hard,” and other popular-aongs, ; was pleasing indeed ; and little Kate in her Imitation of the" Captain and‘ His whiskers,” as also the sweet pathetic sing- v > inar, ; together with her , brother, of “ When ye gan aWa' Jkmle;”- wasatreat of f ' no .mean order, and testified to the great amount of care beipgLesfcowed upontheir.- - youthful training. The “iCaller M of 'Mr Kennedy, when once heard, could not ' easily bo forgotten. As a talented and popular family it is veijr seldom that we have such amongst uh , three’ of them should,; in the primer iofv! i( life, have mettheirfate in such a dreadful- \f. I way, no one can help regretting. It Way;; ■' perhaps, not be out of place in remarking '' - 1 that at, the time I speak of, and during the!/'* professional Iptay in . were the guests'off thedate 'Dr -Campbiel^w who, with his entire family, perished in that ill-fated . ever-to-be|remembere(L Tararua.—lam, &c., <■■■■.'
