THE GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIP " STEINWAERDER." This arrival took place yesterday, and thereby 151 souls have been added to the colonial population, including a goodly number of mechanics. We felt some alarm when our eyes first alighted upon the terms, "all professional men," in Messrs Godeffrey and Son's (the owners') letter. The Steinwaerder, as well as the ships Victoria and Alfred, which preceded her, belongs to Messrs Godeffrey and Son, of Hamburg. She is commanded by Captain Kramer. The emigrants are said to be of unexceptionable character. Messrs Godeffrey and Son state that it was their intention, in conjunction with Mr Delius, to despatch a couple more emigrant ships in October. They further state that, in consequence of the favourable accounts from this colony, a large number of Germans will be attracted to South Australia during 1849; but that the utmost care will be used by the writers and Mr Delius in investigating the characters of all candidates for passages to Port Adelaide.

The Late Mrs. M. E. MENZ.— Our obituary notices on Saturday, we regret to state, announced the death of Mrs. Magdalene Elize Menz, an old colonist of forty-six years. She arrived in the colony at the end of 1849 in the ship Steinwerder, which also brought to Adelaide many other old colonists. She was married to Mr. Johann Menz shortly after her arrival in Adelaide. In 1850 they settled in Wakefield-street, since when to the time of her death Mrs. Menz has been resident there. During the absence of her husband at the Victorian goldfields Mrs. Menz established a small grocery business. Left with a family in 1860 on the decease of her husband she carried on the business, which was afterwards transferred to her sons, and has developed into the well-known bread, biscuit, and confectionery factory of Messrs. W. Menz & Co. Tbe deceased lady has been noted for her charitable and kind disposition, as was witnessed by the extent of floral offerings that followed in her private carriage behind the hearse at the funeral on Sunday afternoon. Her illness extended over a period of four months, and entailed great suffering, accentuated by the fire that took place on the premises of the firm recently, when she was totally invalided, and had to be carried to neighbouring premises while the fire raged. During her last days the word 'fire' was always on her lips, showing that she had taken the misfortune much to heart. The deceased lady was known to almost every German and to most English families in the city, and her death will be widely regretted. The employées of the firm mustered on Sunday afternoon with their representative foreman, and formed the pallbearers, five on each side, carrying the coffin from the house to the hearse. Behind the coffin two of the employées carried a large wreath as a token of respect to the departed. The private trap, loaded with wreaths and led by one of the employées, followed. The chief mourners were Messrs. W. Menz and A. H. Menz (sons), O. Basedow (son-in-law). F. Basedow, M L.C., R., A., and E. Menz (nephews), J. Kindermann and E. Siekmann (relatives), W. Jacobsen, and A. Basedow. Following the three mourning coaches came the employées of the firm and private traps to the number of about seventy. Around the vault, which has been built at the West-terrace Cemetery, were to be seen almost all of the representative German colonists and a very large number of public men, including representatives of those firms with which the late lady had had business relations, and of others with which the present firm do business. The late Mrs. Menz leaves two sons (Messrs. W. and A. H. Menz), a daughter (Mrs. O. Basedow), and five grandchildren.
