At Black River, Glenelg, on the morning of Wednesday, the 28th ult., Mr. Alexander McNaughton, aged 60 years.

Mr. McNaughton was a native of Perthshire, Scotland; and emigrated to this County in the year 1824. He was a man of a warm heart, and hospitable feelings: his door was never shut while the homeless poor asked admission: nor was his table ever removed while the hungry prayed for food. It was his lot to pass through many troubles while 'here below,' but the Sun of his earthly sojourn went down serenely, his hopes bright with immortality. 'Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.'
