12 APRIL 1844, Friday

At Trevenson House, on the 4th instant, William Reynolds, Esq., aged 77 years, to the last period of which he was actively engaged in discharging the arduous duties of a most responsible position in society. At a very early period of life, this lamented gentleman, by his talents, industry, and integrity, attracted the notice of his first patron, the great and good Lord De Dunstanville; and as time developed these high qualities, the more did they entitle him to the highest mark of that nobleman's confidence, who entrusted him with the management of his extensive and greatly varied property. For a period of 55 years, animated by, and enjoying his Lordship's friendship, he conducted his affairs to the mutual satisfaction and advantage of Lord and Tenant, holding the even balance of justice between both, never oppressing the latter, and ever mindful of the interests of the former. In superintending and maaging the mining property, he was not less happy in gaining the esteem of the adventurer, and the regard and respect of the poor miner, whose friend and counsellor he invariably proved. Not only was he a liberal contributor to the funds of all the charitable institutions of the county, but his private charities and hospitality will ever be remembered by the poor of his neighborhood. The Cornish Railway in him has lost a zealous and able supporter, and his confidence in the ultimate success of that great public undertaking was best shewn by a large and handsome subscription. If any further eulogium on one so universally known and respected was wanted, we have only to point to the gratifying and highly deserving testimonial which was offered to his worth by nearly 2,000 of his rich and poor neighbours and friends on a very recent occasion. From the memory of his bereaved children his tenderness, affection, and care, can never be obliterated; and they can only feel consolation in the assurance that their loss is his eternal gain. - From a correspondent.
