Mr. John Catt, of North Rocks, was on Tuesday transacting some business in Mr. F. W. Todhunter's office, Parramatta, when he was suddenly seized with paralysis, and fell heavily to the ground. Dr. F C. Hall's aid was called for; and for three hours the best that could be done on the spot was done; then the old gentleman was removed to his stepdaughter's residence in Parramatta North. He never recovered, however, and died the same evening. The funeral was largely attended. The cortege (which was marshalled by Messrs. W. Metcalfe and Co., undertakers), moved from the house to the Carlingford Cemetery, where the Rev. Canon Young read the last service over the coffin. The deceased gentleman, who was 61 years of age, leaves a family of seven children. He was a highly-respected resident of the Hills district; and many of his old friends and neighbors followed his body to its last resting place on earth, on Wednesday.
