Died.

In our obituary of this clay wo have to record the death, after two days' illness, of Mr. Alexander Shepherd, who filled the office of Colonial Treasurer up to the date of the establishment of Responsible Government in New Zealand. Though a Government official, the deceased ever pursued an independent course in the Legislature in support of what he believed to be right, and both before and since his retirement from public life, took a warm interest in the advancement of the Province of Auckland. In connection with the Savings' Bank and other local institutions, Mr. Shepherd rendered valuable services to our community, services none the less efficient for the quiet and unassuming manner in which they were performed. He was an old servant of the Crown, having held official appointments in other Colonies before coining to New Zealand. — The immediate cause of death was, we believe, disease of the heart — symptoms of which complaint had manifested themselves a year or so ago. — New Zealander, July 23.
