from West Australian
Our Vasse correspondent, in a letter published on Tuesday, mentioned the death of an old and well-known colonist—Mr. Alfred Pickmore Bussell. The sad event took place on the 18th inst. at Brookhampton, the residence of his son in law, Mr. J. G. Thompson, and resulted from paralysis, after five days' illness. The remains of the deceased, who was 67 years of age, were conveyed to the Vasse and buried, on the 20th, in the churchyard of Busselton, beside a sister and several brothers. The late Mr. A. P. Bussell arrived in the colony per ship Warrior in 1830. He settled, in the first place, at Augusta, but five years later removed at Cattlechosen, Vasse. In 1850 he married and went to reside at Broadwater, which he quitted six years afterwards for his late residence near the Margaret river on the South West Coast. Mr. Bussell, who leaves numerous children, and relations throughout the colony, was a justice of the peace, and, for a time, occupied a nominated seat in the Legislature under the administration of Sir Frederick Weld.
