Death of Mr. James Macarthur, Police Magistrate of Goulburn.—In Friday's issue we gave a brief notice of the death, at an early hour on Thursday morning, of Mr. Macarthur, after an illness of only a few days. We learn from the Goulburn Herald of the 27th that the immediate cause of death was bronchitis, supervening upon an epileptic attack, to which the deceased gentleman was occasionally subject. During the short poriod of his official connexion with Goulburn, Mr. Macarthur had secured the general respect and esteem of the inhabitants. He succeeded Mr. Chatfield as clerk of petty sessions, and, on the retirement of Captain Plunkett, he was appointed police magistrate, his appointment dating 1st February last. The deceased gentleman was formerly engaged in pastoral pursuits. He leaves a widow and young family, for whose unexpected bereavement general sympathy is felt. From a private letter we learn that the funeral took place on Saturday last, when his remains were followed to the grave by a large number of friends. The Circuit Court being held at the time in Goulburn, his Honor Mr. Justice Milford adjourned the proceedings for an hour, in order to be present at the funeral.
