DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST.

WELLINGTON, October 4. Mr Walter Turnbull, formerly one of the leading merchants of the colony, was found dead in his bed this morning. He had been in a weak state of health for a long time, but his death was rather sudden. He was aged seventy-four years. He came out to Wellington in 1857, and founded the firm of W. and G. Turnball and Co. here. He was a member of the Provincial Council and a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church, to which he was a very liberal subscriber. He leaves a son and two daughters.
