CORNWELL.
The news of the death of Mrs. William Cornwell, of Thornlea Gorman's Hill, will not be unexpected to her friends, as the deceased lady has been an invalid for many years. Within the past fortnight, however, her end has been hourly expected, and she passed away this morning at the age of 83 years. Mrs. Cornwell, who was a native of Richmond, came to the Bathurst district with her husband in the early sixties. Soon afterwards Mr. Cornwell purchased the property at Thornlea, where they have resided ever since. Mrs. Cornwell was universally esteemed and her name was synonymous with hospitality and large- heartedness. Her family consisted of one son — Mr. J. W. Cornwell — of Randwick, and two daughters. The Misses Cornwell have been devoted in their attention to their mother during her long period of sickness. The demise of their aged parent is keenly felt by the children, as also by the aged partner in life, and a large circle of friends. The funeral takes place to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, and deceased will be buried at Kelso.

Thirteen children weroe born to them, and the family circle remained unbroken until after the death of both parents, each having reaehed the age of 81 years.
