    • Death of Mb. D. G. Brock.—  Our obituary notices announce the death of another old colonist—  Mr. Daniel George Brock-who died on Saturday, June 8. after a painful illness of nearly five months' duration, at the age of 57. He arrived in the colony in 1833, and accompanied Sturt in some of his gallant explorations in the interior, in which were experienced great privation. Amongst these was the famous expedition of 1844, of which the late Mr. J. M. Stuart was a member. He was connected with the Register 'for some time, but afterwards settled at the Port, -where he carried on business for several years as a Custom-House agent. He was very much respected, and deep regre. is felt at his decease. His funeral took place on Sunday at the Alberton Cemetery. The procession was a long one, including 23 vehicles besides pedestrians. Service was conducted by the Rev. J. Price in the Alberton Baptist Chapel, Mr. Brock having been a member of the Church worshipping there. Upon the coffin a very appropriate emblem was placed, in the shape of a handsome bunch of the Sturt pea a flower first discovered by the intrepid party of which he was one. Amongst those who followed the remains to the grave, besides a number of relatives, were the Hon. P. Santo, M.P., and Mr P. Santo, jun., and Messrs. J. Formby, EL Quin, H. Simpson, Dr. Duncan, J. Bickers, T. Grierson, J. Jf. Sinclair (Mayor of the Port), J. and A. S. Neill, D. W. Scott and S. A. Wells (Deacons of the Church), J. Anthony, J. E. Dempster, and others.'
