DEATH OD COL. M'REYNOLDS. Full of years, Col. Andrew J. Mc- Reynolds yesterday closed a long and honorable career. The infirmities of age had withdrawn him from an active participation in the affairs of the world, but his life is written in the history of Michigan and his name will be handed down to coming generations as one of the notable men of this state. He came to Michigan in 1833, while Michigan was still a territory. He par- ticipated in the famous "Toledo war;" had a hand in the Canadian patriot war; was an officer in the Mexican war, and served with gallantry and honor in the war netween the states. He knew General Cass, long governor of Michigan territory; was a friend of Stevens T. Mason, the first governor of Michigan as a state, and with the pos- sible exception of Governor Pingree, was personally acquainted with all the governors Michigan has had since Gov- ernor Mason's time. He was the old- est surviving member of the Michigan legislature, one of the oldest members of the bar, and was counted the pa- triarch among Michigan Masons. He held many poblic offices during his long life, and in them all acquitted himself honorably and well. In private life he was warm hearted and generous, and in his family he was loving and kind. Even advanced years did not chill his interest in the affairs of the world or in the welfare of his friends.
