FINE OLD COLONISTS. MR. AND MRS. C. ALDERMAN. Sturdy old colonists of the kind South Australia was fortunate in securing among its early settlers are Mr. and Mrs. CharlesAlderman, of Balaklava, who recently celebrated their diamond wedding, and have been spending the Christmas holidays with relations at Hyde Park. Mr. Alderman was born on the border of Hampshire and Wiltshire, in 1832, and arrived at Holdfast Bay in the ship Lloyds on December 1, 1838. His wife, who is three years younger, is a native of London, and came out in 1854. Mr. Alderman has seen 80 Christmas Days in Australia. The first of them he spent in Immigration-square, which was the name applied to the huts erected for the new-comers as a temporary abode on the west park lands. Meat cost about 1/6 a pound in those days, and flour 1/ a pound, and Mr. Alderman does not recollect having had any plum pudding. The first work his father obtained was digging a cellar in Morphett-street, for a wage of 6/ per day of 12 hours. The family established a home in the bush at Torrensville, and afterwards lived on Bull's sheep station, now Fulham Park. Later they had a farm of ten acres at the Reedbeds, and the father paid 13/ a day for the hire of four bullocks and a plough. Seed wheat cost him about £1 a bushel. Everything went well until in September a flood came down the Torrens, submerged the crop, and made it a complete failure. The family woke in the middle of the night to find the water was ankle deep in the homestead. Fortunately they had a quarter-acre patch of melons on a sandhill, and sold them for a good price. Five watermelons purchased for a banquet at Government House on New Year's Day realised £1. The next move was to the Grange, where a livelihood was gained by pig raising and the cultivation of melons and malting barley. In 1845 Mr. Alderman went to the Gawler River, and on the opening of the Burra mine he and his father engaged in carting on the road. Mr. Alderman joined in the rush to the Victorian gold diggings, but returned after three years, worse off than when he started. Mr. and Mrs. Alderman have been living in the Balaklava district for 50 years. The former has enjoyed remarkably good health, and is very active, notwithtstanding his advanced age. Mrs. Alderman has for a number of years been blind, but she is otherwise hale and well and cheerful in spite of her affliction. An evidence of her vitality is the fact that her leg, which was broken at Easter, 1915, when she was in her 80th year, has knitted so well that she is able to get about on it as well as ever. There are two sons — Messrs. C. W. and S. J. Alderman, of Gilgandra, New South Wales, six daughter — Mesdames Kuchenmeister, of Saints station; E. Boehm (Waapeet, Victoria), G. Dyer (Hyde Park), C. R. Geue (Balaklava), F. Dolton (Merredin, Western Australia), and G. Strawhan (Port Wakefield), 28 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.

Married Peter Pomery DUNGEY 11 August 1845 at Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide
Christina Dungey, Widow of the late Mr. Peter P. Dungey, of Bowden, passed to her rest on March 16, after about four weeks' illness. She was born in Scotland in Her parents were strict Presbyterians, so strict that on the Sabbath the blinds would be kept down the whole day, and not even a dish would be washed. The whole family would go to the Kirk practically the whole day. The children had to learn the Catechism and portions of the Scriptures. Christina never forgot the influence of such a home. The family sailed for Australia in theshipLloyds,1838.The family, in addition to the parents, consisted of five daughters and a son. They settled, on arriving, just where the Adelaide Gaol now stands. Mr. Robert Christie, Christina's father, joined the police force. He next went to Islington and engaged in farming and dairying. When about fourteen or fifteen years of age, Christina went into service with Governor Grey. She attended the Wesleyan Church, which was at Gawler-place, where Murray's warehouse now stands. Her conversion to God took place about this time, under the Rev. John Longbottom. She became deeply attached to the Methodist Church. From Governor Grey's she went into service inthe home of Mr. Giles, in Adelaide. She was married to Mr. Peter P. Dungey when she was about twenty years of age. Mr. Dungey at that time was a prosperous brickmaker in Bowden. Many of the bricks inthe old Parliament House and inthe Adelaide Gaol were made by him. Mrs. Dungey identified herself with the Wesleyans who met in Moffatt's place, near the gasometer. She attended the class-meeting, and up to the last spoke with delight of the hanppy times she used to have. When Revs. James Way and James Rowe arrived inthe colony in 1850, the late Mr. Samuel Coombe and Peter Dungey, who had been Bible Christians inthe Old Land, gave the ministers a most cordial welcome. When the Bible Christians opened in Bowden Mrs. Dungey went with her husband, and they, with Mr. and Mrs. Coombe, were among the first to start the Bible Christian cause in Australia. The two homes were always opened to the ministers. Mr. Dungey and Mr. Coombe became Trustees, with others, for the first church. These two men were liberal supporters. Mr. Dungey was also one of the founders of the Rechabite Order inthe district. Mrs. Dungey became a Sunday-school teacher. Only a short time before her death some of her old scholars came to thank her for her Sunday-school teaching of many years past. She was liberal in contributing trays and in support of the ministry. Up to the very last her quarterly donation was given for circuit funds. She was an active woman, and one who enjoyed religion. Whenever she could she would attend the house of God. It was a pleasure to talk to her about religion. In talking about the love of Christ her eyes would sparkle, and she would audibly praise the Lord. Just before her end she assured Mrs. Rivers and Mr. E. C. D. Coombe it was all right. The Chief Justice writes:—"I have known Mrs. Dungey for 54 years, and I cannot recall a blemish in her consistent Christian character. She was a good woman, full of snood works and almsdeeds which she did. She was one I held in high esteem and affectionate regard. Mrs Coombe and Mrs. Dungey were the two oldest members of the erstwhile Bible Christian cause. Now Mrs. Coombe is the only surviving founder. The links with the foundation of this church are dropping out. What a joy it is that we shall meet again in our Father's home on high. Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." The above sketch was read at the Bowden Church on Sunday night, March 24, when the Rev. W. H. Cann conducted an in memorium service.

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST Links With the Past. Mr. Charles Emery, an old and respected resident of Port Adelaide, died at his residence in High-street, Queenstown, on Thursday night. ; He was 86 years old, having been born in Kentish Town, London, on December 12, 1823. Prior to leaving for South Australia with his father and family, in his 10th year, he witnessed the Coronation of Queen Victoria. The passage to Australia was made in the ship Lloyds (Captain Garrett), and among the passengers were Messrs. Murdock, Evas, Hall, Chiney, and Murray. The Lloyds arrived at Holdfast Bay on November 1, 1838. The Emery family consisted , of father, stepmother, brother William and wife, sister Margaret, and brothers Isaac, Benjamin. Edwin, and Charles. A tent in Wright-street Adelaide, formed their first home, and they later removed to a hut near the present site of the Adelaide Gaol. Prisoners then were confined in a small building opposite "the Black" "Swan Hotel, on North-terrace. With his father Mr. Emery was engaged in lime-burning and brickmaking, and on the second Sunday after arrival he rang the bell of the old wooden Holy Trinity Church on North Terrace. Mr. Emery, in recalling the event some time ago, said:—"The first and only Church of England minister at that time was the Rev. Charles Beaumont Howard. When Mr. Howard heard me ringing he sent for me and engaged me there and then to ring morning and evening. That was on the first Sunday in February, 1839, and I held the position as verger till 1852. In 1840 the Rev. James Farrell arrived in the State but after two years Mr. Howard died. Mr. Farrell then took charge of Holy Trinity Church, and shortly afterwards he engaged me as groom. I was then 20 years old, and I remained in his service till I was married on March 11, 1844." Mr. Emery married Miss Harriet Plummer, who arrived in South Australia by the ship William Mitchell in 1840 and who had been employed at Government House as housemaid, and subsequently as lady's maid to Lady Grey. Mr. Emery then relinquished the office of verger, but, at the request of Mr. Farrell, he took it again later, while Mrs. Emery officiated temporarily as pew-opener. In those early days Mr. and Mrs. Emery found it a comparatively hard struggle to live. Work became scarce and provisions dear. Bread was 2/ per 4-lb. loaf, and meat 1/6 per lb. The latter was very hard to obtain, and Mr. Emery witnessed women so eager to secure it that in a shop kept by Peter Cook, holding on the various joints of a sheep while the butcher severed the carcase with axe and knife, as best he could. By 1845 so many cattle had come overland that mutton was procurable at 1 1/2d. per lb. and beef at 2d. Good legs of mutton sold at 6d. and bread became cheap as larger crops were cultivated and reaped. Mr. Emery visited the Victorian gold, diggings four times. One evening, when in Victoria. his party saw moving towards them a puzzling body in motion, and when they reached it they discovered it was composed of thousands of frogs. These were so thick on the ground that it was a trouble to get the bullocks to face them. In 1857 Mr. Emery was engaged on the work of laying the North railway-line from the North Adelaide Junction to Gawler. The same year he took a house at Queenstown and for the last 53 years this has been his home. Mrs. Emery died in 1903. The deceased gentleman leaves four sons, two daughters, and several grandchildren.

FIELDER, John Edward Born 30 September 1808 at Haselwood, near Woodbridge and Ipswich, Suffolk England Died 21 July 1903 at Henley Beach, SA
Mr. JohnEdwardFielder died at his residence, Henley Beach, on Tuesday evening. There was not a better known and more highly respected resident of the district, where he had resided since the early days of South Australia. He was one of the first settlers at Henley Beach. Few could better tell of the ups and downs of South Australia in the early days than Mr. Fielder, whose various occupations placed him in a peculiarly favourable position to speak. His faculties were unimpaired to the last. He was wont to relate many experiences of his early days, and, having a retentive memory, his dates and details were reliable. Mr. Fielder was born at Haselwood, near Woodbridge and Ipswich, Suffolk, England, on September 30, 1808, and was therefore in his ninety-fifth year. His father was a hard working tiller of the soil, and, himself a steward of a large estate in England, he brought up his son in his footsteps. Even when at school young Fielder had to fill in his play hours and holidays with the use of the plough, spade, and hoe. Later, in life he took up the drapery business at Glenham, and subsequently entered a large drapery firm in London. Eventually he removed to Fairham, near Portsmouth, where he was still connected with the soft goods trade. He arrived in South Australia in the ship Lloyds, which anchored at Holdfast Bay on December 30, 1838. Among his fellow-passengers were Mr. Mr. George Goddard and Mr. Wainwright, watchmaker, both well-known businessmen in Adelaide in the earlier days, were among his shipmates. Mr. Fielder began his career in South Australia at the Reedbeds, where he cultivated land for Mr. Robert Debney. He started quite an industry in the early days by cutting the flags and reeds, which were bought by residents of Adelaide, the former for making bricks, the latter for constructing reed huts in the principal streets of the "city." In 1839 Mr. Fielder married a daughter of Mr. Debney, and a family of nine children (three sons and six daughters) were brought up, of whom only five now survive, viz.. Mr. Charles Fielder, of Henley Beach; Mrs. Thomas Stanford, Mrs. .lames Stanford (of Fulham), Mrs. Halliday, and Miss Matilda Fielder. There are 39 grandchildren and 25 greatgrandchildren. Mrs. Fielder predeceased her husband some years ago. After some time Mr. Fielder took from the late Capt. Sturt a lease of a section of land near the Grange, where he engaged in gardening and agriculture. In a few years he removed to the house in which he lived till his death. He resided at Henley Beach for over 50 years. When recently referring to his early experiences and the prices of produce, Mr. Fielder stated that it was not unusual to pay £150 per ton for flour, when it was nearly half ground maize, to weigh up. He bought wheat at one guinea a bushel, and next year it dropped to 10/ per bushel, but the good crop compensated for the fall in prices. Many years later be grew and sold wheat at 1/6 per bushel. The Reedbeds was noted for vegetables, and carts would go down on Saturdays and Sundays and buy. Cow cabbages brought 2/6 each, while ordinary small ones realized 1/. Broccoli sprouts grew to a large size, and it was necessary to use a saw to cut them in two: their price was 3/6 each. Turnips, about the size of walnuts, with 12 in a bunch, brought 3/6 for two bunches. Onions ranged from £40 to £50, and even up to £70 per ton, and Mr. Ranford, an old Melbourne buyer, used to come over and buy at these prices, to sell again in the sister state. Mr. Lander was a large grower then in the neighbourhood, and it was no uncommon thing for him to take a couple of loads to Port Adelaide, and receive a cheque for £100 in exchange. Meat was also dear. A forequarter of mutton fetched as much as 6/3. Some years later Mr. Fielder sold on the old racecourse, which was then used for cattle sales, mutton at 1½d. per lb., and sheep weighing 100 and 110 lb. brought only 4/6 per head; that was over 30 years ago. In the days when the Burra Burra mines first opened up Mr. Fielder, in addition to his farming pursuits, carried on communication be tween that mining centre and Adelaide by means of a bullock team service.

South Australian Register Tuesday 23 April 1878 page 4 Buried Salisbury St. John's Anglican Cemetery SUICIDE BY SHOOTING. An inquest was held by Mr. J. Harvey, J.P., at Penfield, on Saturday, April 13, on the body of JohnSquiresUnderdown, who shot himself on the previous day. Mr. Caleb Virgo was chosen Foreman of the Jury. Jane Underdown, widow of the deceased, said that she saw her husband last alive at about 6 a.m. on Friday. He left the house in which they were living, near the Bolivar, for the farm at Peachy Belt, and said that very likely he might not come back again. He was in the Asylum for the insane from the day after Christmas until the middle of January, having been placed there by the advice of Dr. Peel. Since he came out he had appeared very careful of himself, and witness had no suspicion that he would take his life. His having been in the Asylum seemed to prey on his mind. Mary Ann Underdown said she was the daughter of the deceased. Yesterday as she was passing the window at about half-past 4 she saw her father sitting on some bags in the corner of the front room with a gun in his hand, and trying to put a piece of iron through the trigger. Went in and asked him what he was going to do with it. He said, "Nothing," and told me to go on. Witness said, "You mean mischief,'' and tried to take the gun away, but deceased prevented her, and said it was his and he could do what he liked with it. Could not get the gun from him, and went to the stable to look for her brother. When she returned deceased was still standing where she left him. He laughed and seemed pleased that he had frightened her. Did not find her brother, and tried again to take the gun, but deceased cocked it and pointed it at her, and followed her to her bedroom door. Her sister was then with her. Deceased then went away for a minute. Witness followed, and found him in the front room with the gun to his head. Saw the flash and heard the report, and saw that the shot had shattered his head. Ran out and screamed, and then went back, when she saw that he was quite dead. He had not had the gun many months. Maria Underdown, who was with her sister, corroborated. Robert Underdown, the eldest son of the deceased, said he was in the paddock when he heard his sister scream. Ran immediately to the house and found his father lying dead in the front room, with his head doubled under him. Father came to the farm in the morning as he was in the habit of doing. He had seemed strange in his mind since November, and depressed in spirit ever since his return from the Asylum, but not so much so as to lead witness to think there was any danger, otherwise, the gun would never have been left loaded. JohnSquires Underdown, brother to the last witness, said he was in the habit of using the gun for shooting turkeys. It was loaded when he put it on the rack. His father had not used it for some time. Deceased seemed more lively than usual yesterday. Elizabeth Cavenagh gave evidence as to having seen the body of the deceased with the gun and piece of iron used to pull the trigger by the side of it. Police-trooper Bushell gave evidence of having found the body with the head frightfully shattered as with a heavy charge of shot, so that death must have been instantaneous. The Coroner having summed up, the Jury returned the following verdict : — " The deceased came to his death through shooting himself while in a state of temporary insanity."

DEATH OF MRS. LAURA BOWDEN. RIVERTON, December 1—On Thursday evening one of the oldest and best known residents of tins district, Mrs. Laura Bowden, died at her residence, at the age of 87 years. The deceased lady, who was born at Ipswich, Sussex, England, arrived here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. Wainright, in the ship Lloyd, in 1838. Although only a child the hardships of the early colonists were impressed on her mind, and she often recalled the experiences of those days when with the other members of the family she lived in a "dug-out" house in a bank of the Torrens. Her father was a watch maker and jeweller, and owned the first shop of its kind in Hindley-street, and which was situated opposite the Black Bull Hotel. After residing there some years the health of her father was affected by indoor work, and he engaged in farming at the Reedbeds, but the constant overflowing of the river proved disastrous to crops, and the farm was abandoned. The next place of residence was Unley, and the family became intimate friends of Dr. Whistler, who at that time owned two sections, now comprising the city of Unley. From Unley the family moved to Cudlee Creek, where mixed farming and cattle raising were engaged in. In 1853 Mr. Wain wright took up a section of land at Skillygolee Creek, now known as Skilly, near Auburn, and carried on cattle-raising. He drove a mob of 500 to Victoria as food for the miners. In 1850 the deceased lady married Mr. Charles Bowden, of the Skilly, where they lived for 30 years, and carried on cattle and sheep farming and dairying with profitable results. Some years ago 1,000 acres at the Skilly was sold, and the couple came to Riverton to live. They resided at tile "Knoll" for many years, where Mr. Bowden died. Mrs. Bowden's eldest son, Oswald, died while with the Elder exploration party. Latterly she had been living in Riverton, and had been in indifferent health for some time. There are six daughters—Mesdames Thomas, of Adelaide; Seymour, Withers, and Kelly, of Western Australia; J. Ferrier, Hammond, and Walter Hannaford—and one son, Mr. Edwin Bowden of Riverton.
