Another old colonist. Mrs. Ann Beesley, widow of Mr. Joseph Beesley, who was in her 89th year, died at her residence, Chapel street, Thebarton, on August 1. Mrs. Beesley arrived with her late husband in the ship Orleana in 1840, the vessel anchoring at Holdfast Bay and afterwards going on to Port Adelaide. She was well known for her unostentatious kindness, and was an earnest worker for the local Wesleyan Methodist Church. The late Mr. Beesley was for many years the superintendent of the Sunday-school, and always took an interest in mission work. He laid out a portion of his small garden for the purpose of giving all returns towards this object. One almond tree was planted, and the produce from this tree every season was sent to the mission. One year the widow sent from this tree 20 lb. of almonds, which realised over £20. Soon after Mr. Beesley arrived he joined the police force, and was stationed at Port Adelaide. Later on he was transferred to the city, when Adelaide was covered with scrub, and he was lost for a night through missing his way when going from the barracks, near Victoria-square, to Government House. During Mr. Beesley's residence at the Port there was trouble with the blacks, who were murdering shepherds in country north and south of Adelaide, and he was a member of an expedition sent out under Inspector Tolmer to arrest the murderers. Mrs. Beesley's surviving sons are Mr. Fred Beesley, of Thebarton, and Mr. John F. Beesley, the well known stationmaster of Petersburg. There are 18 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

South Australian Register Friday 19 December 1884 page 4
John Harris Browne was a better bushman than his brother, more placid and wider in his sympathies. In 1844-45 he went as medical officer with Charles Sturt's expedition into Central Australia. Unusually observant and intensely practical, he was probably the most useful member of the party and, although he suffered like the others from scurvy, his courage and professional skill certainly brought Sturt back alive. In April 1851 he was appointed justice of the peace at Booboorowie; in 1853 he visited goldfields in Victoria and New South Wales. He went to England next year and returned with five rams from the flock of T. B. Sturgeon & Sons, which had been bred from Spanish merinos of George III, and in 1856-64 made Buckland Park his headquarters. He travelled constantly on visits to his stations and was particularly expert in assessing the condition of stock and feed in the dry interior. In 1862, hoping for new country to open, he equipped Joseph Bonnin's expedition into the Gawler Ranges, but the results were disappointing. He settled in England in the 1870s but made several visits to South Australia. He died at Bath on 12 January 1904, predeceased by his wife Margaret Anne Frances, daughter of Rev. Lansdowne Guilding, whom he had married at St Mary's Church, Kooringa, on 23 December 1857, and survived by four children.
CAHILL Sylvester, Ellen/Eleanor GLEESON, John, Thomas Mark, Mary Ann, son, (Eleanor Magdalena)
CAHILL, Sylvester Died 01 February 1846 at Adelaide, SA
Died aged 45 years ODD FELLOWSHIP.-A procession of the Order will take place Ibis day, at 3 o'clock when the remains of Brother SylvesterCahill, late of the Adelaide Lodge, will be conveyed to the public cemetery, and interred with the usual honours. This is the third death since the establishment of Odd Fellowship in the colony, upwards of ' four years, and the only one in which the family of a deceased member has been entitled to the full benefit of the institution.
On Tuesday last the 3d of February, the mortal remains of SylvesterCahill were consigned to the tomb. As he was a Brother of the Order of Oddfellows of the Manchester Unity, the members of his own and of the other Lodges accompanied the body to the grave. About three p.m. the Brothers began to assemble at the Odd fellows' Hall, and at four p.m. were seen to issue from the doors of the Lodge in the following order :—The junior Brothers of the Lodges leading the way, followed by the senior members; V.G. Hall, of the Adelaide Lodge, and A.S. Lashmar, N.G. Turner and D.P.G.M. Hughes, P.P.G.M. Jones and P.G.M. Nash closing the procession. They walked two and two to the residence of their departed Brother, and formed a long line in front of it. It must have been very gratifying to the friends of the deceased to see, notwithstanding, the unpropitious state of the weather, so many of his friends thus paying the last mark of respect to their departed Brother; and we must say that the long line of Oddfellows, with their white gloves, aprons bound with black, and black scarfs, had a very imposing appearance. The Brothers walked immediately in front of the hearse to the Catholic Cemetery, where, at the Cross in the centre of the ground, it was headed by the minister, who preceded the procession to the grave. After the services of the Church were performed, P.G.M. Nash read the usual address, and at its close dropped a sprig of thyme on the coffin. The Brothers followed according to seniority, each depositing Ms token of esteem in the grave of the departed one. The Brothers then returned in procession, the seniors leading, to the Oddfellows' Hall, and, after a short time, were seen to leave for their respective homes. We subjoin the funeral address, the perusal of which we think will gratify our readers:-- " At the request of our deceased Brother, whose loss we lament, but whose memory we cherish and revere, we have accompanied his mortal remains to the place of interment. Some of you spectators may be anxious to know what are our professions. We inform such that the Order, of which we have the honour to be members, is formed on the broad basis of philanthropy. Its object is to promote the happiness of mankind generally, but that of its own members particularly; and we accomplish this great object by benevolence to society at large; by the cultivation of friend- ship, and social and beneficient virtue among ourselves, by mutually supplying the wants and alleviating the distresses of each other; and impressed with the inestimable blessings we enjoy under the mild Government of our beloved Sovereign, we pay a witling obedience to the laws of our country, a proper deference to all our superiors, and a most sincere ; good will to all mankind, "What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? The living know they must die. Man cometh up like a flower, and is cut down like the grass; he heaped up riches but cannot tell who shall enjoy them; naked we came into the world, and naked we return out Of it.—The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." To the dark grave, the last retreat of all, we have consigned the mortal remains of our departed Brother; but though his voice can no more be heard among us to gladden our passing hours; though bis hands can no more extend their wonted benevolence, nor his informed mind impart its sage intelligence, yet, in pious recollection of days that we passed together, we will follow him beyond the grave, and e shall still have a place in our memory till we too pay the debt of Nature when we hope we shall once more meet in a happier Lodge, and live in perfect unison of friendship, before the All-beneficent and moat High God. " To us who still remain candidates for holy bliss and never-fading crowns, do thou, O most Holy Father, shower down Thy grace, and bless us ever more."

A DEAD PHILANTHROPIST. THE LATE LADY COLTON. UNIVERSAL SORROW EXPRESSED. Many hundreds of people will read with intense regret of the death of Lady Colton, which occurred- as the result of a long and painful illness at her residence Hackney-road Hackney, on Saturday morning. Her medical adviser (Dr. Marten) had known for weeks that the complaint from which his patient suffered must end fatally, and fie expressed the opinion that her many years of earnest, unremitting, and devoted labor in the interests of the poor and suffering had at least something to do with her debilitated condition It is rare that such whole-hearted service is rendered to any cause as that which Lady Colton freely and voluntarily gave to her chosen work. Regardless of her own health, she spent the best hours of her long and busy life in ministering in a cheerful and unostentatious manner to the want* of those whose lot is cast in less happy circumstances than her own. She took the deepest interest in religious matters, and for many .years was a most energetically useful member of the Pine-street Wesleyan Church, interesting herself in all its departments of labor for the benefit of the community. Every office that could possibly be occupied by her was filled with great acceptance, and her earnest intelligent, and Christian like spirit manifested itself in all her acts, so that, although she never pushed herself forward, her name was recognised everywhere as a, synonym of gentleness and goodness. Lady Colton's life was indeed adorned with countless charitable deeds. She was one of the earliest Sunday-school teachers in Adelaide, her husband years ago being super intendent of Pirie-street Wesleyan Sunday-school, and for a long period she filled the teacher's chair of the young women s class connected with the same institution. The Dorcas Society also monopolised a large share of her attention, and her labor in furthering the interest of the Pirie-street Nursing Sister Association end of the mothers' meeting will be remembered by those who benefited by her loving kindness. She never seemed to spare herself a task, the performance of which would bring happiness to the heart of a fellow-creature, and she was ever ready to pour comfort into the lives of those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death. No work was too arduous, no service too humble. Whether it was sitting beside the suffering poor in the hospitals, or attending to the pressing wants of the well-to-do in sickness, the duty, which by her was turned into a cheerful labor of love, was always conscientiously and pleasantly performed. Home and foreign missions benefited largely through her labor. In fact, in all church matters her sympathy, her hands, and her money were always to be depended upon. Her sympathies were nor restricted to the Wesleyan Methodist connexion. The institutions and schools for the blind at North Adelaide and at Brighton shared in her attentions. In connection with the establishment of the Young Women's Christian Association she played a most prominent part, and became its first president, a position which she continued to hold with great advantage to the members right up to her death. The Children's Hospital, of which she was practically the founder, came in for a share of her cosmopolitan, and unsectarian labor, and the Strangers' Friend and Benevolent Society was much indebted to her. In short, no important philanthropic movement in Adelaide during the past half a century has been carried on towards the success of which she was not instrumental by her indefatigable labors and by her liberal gifts. It will therefore be readily understood that her happy smile and her cheerful voice will be missed by hundreds, and that in the homes of the very poor there will be great sorrow over her death. Her character was of the genial, pleasant, and sunshiny order, while she was always kindly and unassuming. Although absolutely firm in standing by any avowed convictions, and decisive in her actions, she always respected the genuine, doubts of others, and was tenderly and compassionately charitable to those whom she thought to be most in error. In the home her influence was increased by her noble womanhood, and it can truthfully be said—'"The heart of her husband did safely trust in her; her children arose up and called her blessed. Her interests extended beyond the region of strictly charitable work. To large numbers of her own sex she showed, what will be most tenderly remembered, a practically helpful spirit, but in the broadest sense she was devoted to the woman's cause. Thus, she was early associated with the movement for female enfranchisemenfc, eventually carried to a successful issue. She was the second President of the Woman's Suffrage League, and in that capacity rendered valuable service. Lady Colton was married to Sir John Colton in December, 1844, at Trinity Church, North-terrace, by the Rev. James Farrell who was then Colonial Chaplain, and who afterwards became Dean of Adelaide. There were five children as the result of the marriage- Mr. John W. Colton and Mr. Alfred Colton (of Messrs. J. Colton and Company, limited), Mr. E. B. Colton, solicitor, Mr. Frank Colton, and one daughter. Lady Colton's maiden name was Cutting, and the was born within the sound of Bow Bolls, London. Her wedded life was a very happy one, and on December 4, 1894, the couple celebrated the jubilee of their marriage. They were always quiet and unobtrusive in their thoughts and ideas, and the interesting celebration took the form of a simple homely gathering at Hackney. The only guests present, who were not connected with the heads of the household, either by blood or marriage ties, were Mr. and Mrs. Longbottom, who were singled out for this special recognition because they had known the venerable couple for over 30 years. After dinner Mr. Longbottom in a brief yet pointed speech, full of humor and pathos, proposed the health of the principals in the celebration, and both Sir John and Lady Colton acknowledged the toast in affecting terms. During the day they received innumerable congratulatory telegrams and letters, some of them coming from the other colonies. These included communications from his Excellency the Governor (the Earl of Kin tore), the Speaker of the House of Assembly (Sir Jenkin Coles), Sir Edwin and Lady Smith, the Rev. J. Robertson, MA (chairman of the Congregational Union), the Rev. A.T. Boas (the Jewish Rabbi), the South Australian Auxiliary of The British and Foreign Bible Society, the State Children's Council, the' Benevolent Association (Pirie-Street), the Maternity Belief Association, the South Australian Female Refuge, the Y.W.C.A-, the South Australian Institution for the Blind and Deaf and Dumb, the Adelaide Children's Hospital, the Commissioners of the Charitable Fund; the Adelaide Hospital Board, the Adelaide Benevolent and Strangers' Friend Society, Lady Colton's Wesleyan Church class, the committee of the Lady Kintore Cottages, and the committee of the Samaritan Fund. An address, charmingly designed, and printed upon white satin with gold decorations, was sent from the members and congregation of the Pine-street Wesleyan Church, with which Sir John and Lady Colton have been associated from its foundation. This list offelicitations bears ample testimony to the esteem which they enjoyed in the estimation of others. In June, 1888, Sir John and Lady Colton paid a visit to England. The valedictory gatherings were very numerous, and one of special significance to Lady Colton took place at the Y.W.C.A. rooms in Pulteney street, at which an address was presented which read as follows: —"Dear Madam — The officers and members of the Y.W.C.A. desire to take this opportunity of expressing our sense of the invaluable services you have rendered to the society since its formation in 1884. During that entire interval you have occupied the office of president with the increasing admiration to us all, having been elected without a dissentient voice year after year in succession. In your case, moreover, that position has been anything but a merely nominal one, for there is no single member of the association whose exertions in its behalf have been as unwearied, and whose devotion has been as whole-hearted. Indeed, we may even venture to say without any disparagement of others that it is to you pre-eminently that the society owes its original foundation and its present satisfactory condition, for, notwithstanding the difficulties we have had to face, the discouragements we have had to bear, your connection with the association has been inseparable, your interest unremitting, and your patient efforts and hopeful anticipations for its ultimate success unceasing. Our appreciation of your work as president of the association, moreover, is enhanced by the knowledge we have of your abundant labors in other fields of usefulness and in connection with other philanthropic institutions. In view of these and kindred considerations, therefore, we feel that we could not allow you to leave these shores even for a year or two without some such recognition as this address embodies of your noble Christian character, your sterling moral worth, and your indefatigable endeavours in every good cause, and especially of our association. That you may long live to illustrate the virtues of our common faith, and to advance the honor of our common Lord is the fervent and united prayer of us all. We cannot close this address, moreover, without wishing your dear husband a prosperous voyage to the fatherland, and a salutary sojourn in other parts, and a safe return to this, the land of your adoption, in which you arid he have for so long lived amid the respect of the colony at large. Signed on behalf of the officers and members, of the Y.M.C.A.—Julia A. Fisher, Georgina Bagshaw, vice-presidents; Marie T- Rubin, hon. secretary.'' Lady Colton, although possessing very strong religious beliefs, "was never dog-matic. She was firmly convinced that the final test of religion is not religiousness, but love, and this conviction was exemplified by all her actions. The poor will miss her, the rich will mourn for her; and the philanthropic world will be the poorer through her decease. She was nearly 76 years old, having been born on December 6, 1822. Her epitaph may well be written in the words of Longfellow:-- "For gentleness, and love, and trust, Prevail o'er angry gale and gust; And in the week pf noble lives Something immortal still survives." Lady Colton was one of the members of the first State Children's Council under the presidency of Dr. Stirling. When the council was reconstructed in 1889 she again took a seat on the board, and had been connected with the council to the time of her decease. Mr. T. Rhodes, the president speaking of her work in that capacity, says:—"She was most regular in her attendance, and took an active interest in all matters brought under consideration. When children were brought from the slams her practical sympathy with the poor was evinced by her wide knowledge of the locality from which they came, and the circumstances by which they had been surrounded. She was in touch with all the poorer neighborhoods, and knew the habits of life in these quarters. Her knowledge in this regard was of immense service to the council. She was of a Sympathetic nature, but was not indiscreet in her charity. She was clear-headed and practical as well as large-hearted. With the other lady members of the council she was in the habit of periodically visiting the Girls' Reformatory at Edwardstown, and her death will be a very real loss to the council and will be distinctly felt." Mr. Rhodes added—"This makes three members who have passed away within 12 months—Mr. McPherson, Dr. O'Connell, and Lady Colton." The Rev. R. S. Casely, the superintendent of the Pirie-street Wesleyan Methodist circuit, when informed by our representative on Saturday morning of the sad news, expressed his ptofoundest sorrow. "Lady Colton," he said, "was a grand woman, and her labors on behalf of the Pirie-street Church and charities generally were continued up to the close of her 75th year, when her overworked system commenced to break down, and for the past 5 months she had been confined to her bed." At the conclusion of the evening service in the Unley Wesleyan Church the Rev. W. A. Langsford (president of the Wesleyan Conference) referred to the great low which the colony, and the Wesleyan Methodist Church in particular, had sustained by the death of Lady Colton. He said it was most difficult to express in words the esteem, the reverence, the deep affection of thousands who came within the circle of her influence. For more than half a century the deceased lady had been a loyal and devoted member of the Wesleyan Church, but her fidelity to her own denomination did not restrict the measure of her holy and philanthropic service. The name of Lady Colton had been for years the synonym for all that was truly charitable and good. It had been associated with almost every form of loving service, and this had ever been performed without the least ostentention. Her name and character were esteemed alike by those who were of exalted position and in the lowly cottages of the poor. She had partaken very largely of the spirit of her Divine example, and the poor, the blind, the sick, the friendless, and the fallen had found in her one ever ready to sympathise and to help. Lady Colton's beneficence was immeasurable. She truly gave herself and counted it a pleasure to devote a large proportion of her time for the welfare of others. Many a society would miss her, many a Sabbath-school scholar would regret the departure of one whose example and precept had been like a beacon light to guide them on in safety, many a home of poverty would be all the poorer. But her work had been well and faithfully done. She rested from her labors and her works followed her. Their fervent prayers would ascend to heaven on behalf of Sir JohnColton and his family, that He who comforts all that mourn would be with them in their hour of sorrow, A special service will be held in the Pirie street Wealeyan Church 2.30p.m. on Monday. The church officials will act as pallbearers.

SUICIDE OF CAPTAIN DENT. An inquest was held at the Port Admiral Hotel, Port Adelaide, by the City Coroner, on Tuesday morning, May 13, to enquire into the circumstances attending the' death' of William Dent, the late master of the schooner Moonta, Mr. T. Whale acted as foreman of the Jury. Robert Munce, mate of the schooner deposed that the deceased was a married man with two children, and was about 31 years of age. The vessel left Port Adelaide on Friday morning, May the crew being all sober. The captain seemed to be sober, but he might have had a glass or two. He was in the habit of getting drunk. Some words occurred on that day regarding the way in which Captain Dent was managing the vessel. The schooner grounded about 2 o'clock in the afternoon of Friday, but she was got off again shortly afterwards. The captain seemed much distressed at this occurrence. Saw no drink then. About an hour afterwards the vessel grounded again, but they ran out the kedge anchor, and so got off again. The vessel then ran on to about five miles N.W. of the lighthouse through the boat channel, leaving the men who had been sent out to pick up the ketch in a boat behind, and they did not get on board until about half-past 5. As only he and the captain were on board when he was sailing, told him that if he went on SB he was going he would run the vessel on shore. He said, " I know what I am doing." Do not think he was sober then. Got aground again at 6 o'clock the same evening, and got off again the same evening. They set all sails to ran her over the fiats into the river, but the vessel ran aground again, where she now lies. The captain then seemed to be very greatly depress and said, " This will, ruin me." He was sober then. On Sunday evening he ordered them to pick up the kedge. That was done, and then ran the kedge out off the starboard-quarter and tried to get the boat off, but did not succeed. Asked him what he was going to do. He said he would go to the Port on Monday morning and get assistance if he could not get her off. [Left sitting.]

THE LATE CAPTAIN DENT.—The City Coroner held an inquest at the Port Admiral Hotel on Tuesday, May 13, on the body of WilliamDent, master of the schooner Moonta. The enquiry lasted for five hours, and plainly showed that the deceased had shot himself while suffering from a fit of remorse for having run his vessel aground. When he started from the Port on Friday afternoon, he was the worse for drink, and he put out to sea, although he had a southerly wind and flood tide, the consequence being that he ran ashore. The men expostulated with him, but he paid no attention to them. The vessel grounded twice the same afternoon, and was got off, but in attempting to run over the flats near Snapper Point she got stuck in her present position. The captain was very much depressed at this occurrence, but did not give any intimation that he was going to commit suicide. He was up early on Monday morning, and none knew that he had shot him-self until he was found dead in his cabin at 6 o'clock. An affecting letter, which he had written to his wife at 4 a.m. on Monday, was read by the Coroner to the Jury, stating that she would be a widow before she received it, and warning her never to let their children touch a drop of drink. He also enclosed two £1 notes for her. The Jury, after a short retirement, returned a verdict that deceased shot himself while labouring under a fit of temporary insanity. We have received the following particulars from Captain Thomas Bicknell, under whom the unfortunate man sailed some few years ago. They help in a very great measure to uphold the finding of the Jury at the inquest :—"In June, 1872, I commanded the ship Joshua Bates, of this port. Off the Cape of Good Hope, whilst running in a gale of wind, the vessel was struck by a very heavy sea. The late Captain Dent was then chief officer, and it being his watch at the time he was knocked down senseless and very much injured about the head—so much so that he was delirious for fourteen days. He was chief officer with me in the barque Wodonga, also of this port, in both vessels for a period of about two years, during which time I never once found him the worse for liquor. I attribute the late fatal occurrence to the injuries he received whilst in the ship Joshua Bates, as I have always been under the impression that his head has been a little affected since then. I did not know of the occurrence till too late, or I would have attended the Coroner's inquest."

A DREAM OF COPPER. Goolwa, June 11.— A- syndicate has been formed with a view to floating a copper venture which has been pegged out. It is situated between the railway viaduct and the old main road bridge, at Currency Creek. The discovery is said to be the result of a dream of Mr. JosephDent, who in company with his brother (Stewart Dent) and two brothers named Lush pegged out claims under miners' rights. The syndicate has now taken out a lease of 40 acres. A sample was sent to Wallaroo, which after treatment is said to yield 60 per cent, of copper.

Oddfellow's Funeral— We have been favoured with the following by a correspondent— 'The funeral of the late Brother WilliamReeds, jun., of Houghton, took place on Monday, 26th instant. The procession left the residence of the deceased at half-past 5 o'clock, and consisted of some 70 brothers of the M.U. and A.O. of Foresters two abreast, and dressed in suitable mourning regalia, followed by the corpse and the relations and friends, and proceeded to chapel, which was crowded to excess. Mr. Randall, the agent of the Congregational Home Missionary Society, conducted the service, and gave an appropriate and solemn address to the survivors. He also offered prayer at the grave, where the usual funeral orations of the Oddfellows and Foresters were read. Mr. Bundey, of North Adelaide, conducted the funeral, which throughout was most orderly and impressive. Mr. Reeds was a man in the prime of life, was very useful in his day and generation, and leaves parents and four sisters to mourn his loss, which will be felt much in the neighbourhood.''
The late Mr. William Reeds.— The correspondent who furnished the information relative to the death and funeral of the late Mr. William Reeds, jun., of Houghton, writes to say that in his haste to save the post he accidentally omitted to mention that the deceased had left a sorrowing widow. He is anxious that the omission should be supplied and its cause explained.

ROSE, Benjamin 1835 at Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England - 27 December 1915 at Edithburgh, SA
THE LATE MR. B. ROSE A YORKE PENINSULA PIONEER. The death of Mr. Benjamin Bose occcurred at Edithburgh on December 27. The deceased was one of the early pioneers of Southern Yorke Peninsula. He came to South Australia with his parents in 1840 in the ship Orleana. He was born at Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England in 1835. After an uneventful voyage of six months, the family landed at Port Adelaide and for a time lived in tents on the banks of the River Torrens. Mr. Rose's parents then moved to Happy Valley, where for many years they were engaged in wood carting, &c. As a boy Mr. Rose had a great desire for seafaring life, which no doubt he inherited from his father. The later was engaged in active service at the time of the battle of Waterloo. When the Victorian diggings broke out in 1851 young Rose was one of the number who went to try their luck, but with little success. In 1880 he was married in St. Luke's Church, Adelaide, to Miss Ann Ankor, and for some time after he was employed by the Government Survey Department, in and round Adelaide. In 1870 he went with his wife and children to Yorke Peninsula. They landed at Coobowie in the small ketch Young Surveyor, and went on to Edithburgh, which was then only scrub country, the town being only pegged out. He took up land, which he cleared, and farmed it for about 40 years, after which time he disposed of his farm and went to live in Edithburgh. The deceased was connected with the first steamship service between Edithburgh and Port Adelaide, and for a number of years was a member of the town council, and also a trustee of the Methodist Church. He was the last surviving original trustee, having been appointed in July, 1874. For many years he was a Sunday-school teacher, which office he took in 1875. Throughout his long life Mr. Rose was a staunch temperance advocate. He was a member of the Foresters' Lodge, and Superintendent of the Juvenile Rechabites. During his residence in Edithburgh he gained the respect and esteem of all classes. His last illness was a short and distressing one. An impressive funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Edgar Arnold on December 29, when a large concourse of friends gathered round the grave. On Sunday morning, January 9, the Rev. E. Arnold made special reference to the late Mr. Rose, and preached from the text, "Be ye faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life." There was a large congregation. Mr. Rose leaves a widow and seven children—Mrs. W. G. Gillard (Magill), Mrs. G. A. Pegler and Mrs. R. Edwards (Yorketown), Mr. John Rose, Mr. James Rose, Mr. William Rose, and Miss E. Rose (of Edithburgh)—and 15 grand-children.

Obituary-—With very deep sympathy we record the passing away early on Sunday morning after a long illness borne with Christian fortitude, of Mrs Brock, wife of Mr George Brock and an esteemed resident of Wallaroo. The deceased lady was an old colonist arriving in this State in 1840, and coming to Wallaroo with her husband and family 48 years ago where she has resided ever since. Mrs Brock was a member of the Congregational Church, Wallaroo, when the late Rev. W. Wilson was pastor, but when the Presbyterian Church was built, she joined it with her husband and had been a valued and consistent member from its foundation, for many years, while health allowed taking inactive interest in all church work, and up to the present with the assistance of her daughter undertaking to collect funds, boy material, and make garments to furnish the Mission Box which is sent every, year to the New Hebrides. The Mission will miss her quiet unostentatious support. Mr Brock survives his wife and has attained his 84th year. Great sympathy is expressed for him and his family in their deep sorrow. Mrs Block leaves one daughter, Miss Brock of Wallaroo, two sons, Mr Alfred Brock, of the Railway Department, Hamley Bridge, and Mr Harry Brock, of Port Pirie, two grandsons, Mr Leslie Brock, of Tumby Bay, and Mr Ainslie Brock of Adelaide. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the Rev. A. H Ross officiating. Mr W. Seeley had charge of the funeral arrangements.

CORONER'S INQUESTS. An inquest was held on Wednesday, the 6th instant, at the house of Mr Bignell, Coromandel Valley, near Government Farm, on the body of a young woman named Elizabeth Mary Vinecombe, who was thrown from a dray with her father and brother on the previous evening. The only words she spoke were, "Oh, I am crushed to death." Her father took her in his arms, and found her quite dead. The boy had his arm broken. It was dark at the time. The injuries deceased received were in the body and chest. Verdict- " Accidental death."
South Australian Tuesday 1 July 1848 page 3
On the 4th instant a fatal accident occurred on the road leading to Coromondel Valley, where a young woman, named Elizabeth Mary Vinecomb, (between 18 and 19 years of age) lost her life. Her father. Mr Vinecomb, farmer, was returning from Adelaide, with a dray drawn by six bullocks in which was himself, his son, his daughter (the deceased), and a German boy. The night was extremely dark, and the vehicle coming in contact with a stump was overthrown, and the parties precipitated on the road. The deceased was thrown violently against the ground, receiving severe external injuries on the chest and other parts of the body, and the blood flowing from between her lips at the inquest, induced the opinion that a large blood-vessel was ruptured within. On being raised by her father she said she was crushed to death, and never spoke again. The force of the fall was considerably increased by its downhill direction, the road being very steep where the accident occurred. W. Wyatt, Esq. held an inquest on the body on Friday, the 7th instant, and the jury returned a verdict of ' Accidental Death.'

He left a widow, three daughters, two sons, and 12 grandchildren.
