WE have to announce the death of Mr. Thomas Hogg, J P., surgeon, which took place at his residence, Darlington House, Newtown-road, yesterday morning. Mr Hogg was a very old colonist, his first arrival in Sydney dating as far back as the year 1837, when he came to Port Jackson in medical charge of military prisoners under sentence of transportation. In early life he entered the service of the East India Company, where he remained for 35 years, and then settled in this colony on a retiring pension, he was the author of a " Report on Leprosy and Elephantiasis," published by the Royal College of Physicians, London, and of " The Rise and Progress of Leprosy and Elephantiasis in the Australian Colonies," and as a member of the Sydney branch of the British Medical Association he read an essay on the disease known as beri-beri, as it prevails in India. For the past 30 years in this colony he had been a director of the Benevolent Society of New South Wales, and for five years he held the position of vice-president to that institution. He was also connected with other charitable organisations in Sydney.

Thanks Geoff.
