Still, Alexander (?–1830)

from Sydney Monitor

On Saturday night at eight o'clock, Alexander Still, Esq., late principal muster-clerk in the ofice of Mr. McLeay, the Colonial Secretary, deeply regretted by his relict and five youthful children, and a numerous circle of friends. Mr. Still was formerly an extensive merchant in Greenock, where he erected one of the best houses in that flourishing sea-port. He afterwards removed to London, where he continued his commercial pursuits, and prospered many years. Reverses however came, and he was at length induced to emigrate to this country about eight years ago. On his arrival, he accepted Office, first in the Commissariat Department under Mr. Wemyss, and latterly as principal muster clerk in the office of Mr. McLeay. Mr. Still was a man of good business-like abilities; but his heart was of the very best; warm, steady, and consistent in his friendship, all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance feel they have lost a friend.  A gentleman who returned to Scotland the other day in the Sovereign testified to the very high esteem in which Mr. Still's name was still held in Greenock; and of the lively interest they still took in his welfare. Happy shall we be to learn, that his widow and children have found the public sympathy to run in their favour.
