MR. David W. CRAIG. Another of those links which bind the Bathurst of
old to that of the present day has been severed, and one less tie now
exists. Last evening Mr. David W. CRAIG passed over to the great
majority, having lived in Bathurst for sixty years. Mr. CRAIG was a
native of Moy, County Tyrone, Ireland, and was born on March 18th,
1820. In 1843 he arrived in the colony and soon afterwards came to
Bathurst, where he formed friendships, which, in some cases, were not
severed to the time of his death. He was a saddler by trade and for
some years carried on business in Howick street. He subsequently built
the store and premises on the corner of William and Piper-streets, and
there conducted business until his retirement, since when his son,
Alderman Herbert P. CRAIG, has carried on the grocery business. Mr.
CRAIG was married in 1848 in the Presbyterian church by the Rev. K. D.
SMYTHE, and there was a family of eleven children. Twelve years ago
Mrs. CRAIG died, and since then Mr. CRAIG has lived with his son
Herbert. He had enjoyed good health until very recently, and was
regularly to be seen taking his daily walk. For about a month he had
been confined to the house, but more recently he has grown more feeble
and weak. For a week prior to his death he was in a comatose
condition, and last night passed quietly away in the presence of
members of his family. Mr. CRAIG has never taken any active part in
public affairs of the town, but watched keenly the events -- political,
religious, and social -- as they passed. He was an authority on the
early history of the district, and information supplied by him was
reliable. As a business man he was fully trusted, and throughout the
district he was held in high esteem and respect by all classes. In the
early days of Bathurst there was a group of men who were
instrumental in laying a foundation, upon which the superstructure of
a city has been built. Amongst these were Messrs. John Charles WHITE,
Francis HALLIDAY, William GRAY, and such men as the late Hon. E. WEBB,
Mr. T. M. SLOMAN, Mr. Josiah PARKER Mr. Henry ROTTON, Mr. W. ATKINS,
and Mr. D. W. CRAIG. One by one these men are passing away, and few of
them only remain. Mr. J. C. WHITE alone resides in Bathurst, while
Messrs. HALLIDAY and GRAY reside in Sydney. There was between these
old men a wonderful attachment, and in a letter recently received by
Mr. CRAIG from Mr. HALLIDAY, that gentleman, in a few words, showed
how sincere are old friendships. In this letter Mr. HALLIDAY says : "
We have been close friends for over sixty years, and this has con-
tinued without a jarring note." We might mention that before Mr. CRAIG
married he and Mr. HALLIDAY lodged in the same house together, and the
friendship formed them has remained unbroken.

Henry OSBORNE ESQ, J.P.- It is with deep and sincere sorrow that we
announce the death of Henry OSBORNE, Esq. of Marshall Mount, which
melancholy event took place on Saturday evening last, about 7 p.m. at
his late residence. The deceased gentleman had suffered for several
months from a most severe and harassing attack and which he endured
with serene resignation and Christian fortitude.For some time before
his disease, we believe, he was fully sensible of his approaching
dissolution, and spoke of it with that becoming cheerfulness which
characterises the last moments of a man at peace with his Maker and
his fellow men. Mr OSBORNE was born in the county Tyrone Ireland, on
the 8th of February; 1803, his father being Archibald OSBORNE, Esq. of
Dinraseer in that county ; he was the youngest ol ten children. Thus,
at the time of his death, he had but shortly entered his 56th year.

Christopher FUNSTON
It is with the deepest feelings of regret that we record in this issue
the death of one of Bowral's well-known and highly respected townsmen
in the person of ' Mr. Christopher FUNSTON who departed this life at
1.15 a.m. on Sunday morning last at his late residence, " Belmore
Park," Bowral. The deceased gentleman, who was 67 years of age, was
born in the County of Tyrone, North of Ireland, where the first 25
years of his life were spent. He then set sail for Australia, landing
in Sydney in 1860. For seven years he was in the Government employ
there, at the end of which time he was transferred to Maitland where,
for 15 years, he occupied the position of overseer of prison labor.
Mr. FUNSTON then retired to his estate in Bowral, which he had
purchased and built upon beforehand. From that time to the end
deceased lived a rather quiet life, not taking a very active part in
public affairs, although at the inception of the municipality he
occupied one of the first aldermanic seats under the mayoral ruling of
the late Mr. J. G. MORRIS.
Mr. FUNSTON was well known throughout the district, and his quiet, un
obtrusive, gentlemanly demeanour, and straightforward honesty of
character, won for him a large circle of intimate acquaintances, who
feel keenly the severance from their friend. He was a liberal
supporter of the Wesleyan Church in Bowral, although for the past few
years physical weakness had debarred him from being a regular
attendant. He had scarcely lived out the allotted span, three score
years and ten, but after four and a half years of intense suffering
the Divine Creator thought best to call him to his eternal Heavenly
home, away from earth's trials and anguish which must have been a
happy and welcome release." The deceased leaves a sorrowing wife, and
two daughters (Mrs. C. DORROUGH of Lismore, and Miss Minnie FUNSTON
of Bowral) to mourn their loss.

The funeral took place on Monday after noon, the cortege moving from
Belmore Park at three o'clock for the Wesleyan Cemetery at Burradoo.
The Rev. M. Maddern officiated at the grave, while the funeral
arrangements were carried out by Mr. J. BEAVAN.

following : Mr. and Mrs. DORROUGH (Lismore), Mr, and Mrs. REDDALL, Mr.
and Mrs, W. ALCORN, Mr, and Mrs. T. BONYNGE, Mr. and Mrs. RICHARDS

Adelaide, Jan. 9.
One of the three surviving members of the Stuart expedition of 1861-2,
Mr. John McGARRY died at the Parkside Asylum at 1:3:0 a.m. on Friday.
The deceased, who was in his 73rd year was a native of Cooktown,
County Tyrone, Ireland. He came to Adelaide with his parents in 1850,
and shortly after their arrival in this State his father started a
black smith's and wheelwright's business. Young McGARRY then 10 years
old, was immediately put to work shoeing horses, and when 18 years old
he went to Victoria and defeated the champion horseshoers of New.
South Wales and Victoria, Messrs.MITCHELL and RYAN. He. saw Bourke and
Wills start, on their ill-fated trip, and shortly afterwards received
a letter from his father asking him to return to Adelaide and join the
McDOUGALL - STUART party. He accepted the offer, and on October 26,
1861, left with the party of that explorer, which.consisted of nine
other men and 71 horses. On July 16 of the following year the
explorers reached the northern coast of Australia. Next day they
started back and reached Adelaide again on Janury 21, 1863. Mr.
McGARRY then resumed his trade on the west coast, and up to within a
few months ago was employed by Mr. T. P. Cash of Calya Station. For
four months he was an inmate of the Bungalow Private Hospital, at
Streaky Bay, and subsequently removed to Adelaide:
