HUBBARD'S COVE, March 4 - A feeling of sadness pervaded the whole community when it was learned for a certainty that Granville JOHNSON, of H company, First Canadian Contingent, died of wounds received in the engagement at Paardeberg on the 18th of February. This brave lad was a most promising young man and well liked by all. He was a son of Captain Robert JOHNSON of Black Point, who had the terrible misfortune to lose both eyes in a blasting accident several years ago. In conversation with Captain JOHNSON in January, he told your correspondent that "if he had twenty sons he would not keep one of them back from going to fight for their country." It was this same spirit that prompted his plucky son to volunteer for battle and lay down his life for queen and country on a South African veldt.
