OBITUARY.

The Late Mrs. J. L. Young. — The former scholars of the late Mr. John L. Young at the Adelaide Educational Institu tion as well as many other colonists will have

learned with regret of the sudden death of the widow of that much-esteemed gentlemen. Mrs. Young was thoroughly identified with the school which was carried on for so many years by her husband, and she will be re- membered with special affection by those of tbe scholars who resided during the terms with Mr. and Mrs. Young at their residence, first on North-terrace and afterwards at Park- side. It will be remembered that some years ago Mr. Young died in the Red Sea on the voyage to England, where, after relinquish- ing his profession as a teacher he had in-

tended to join his family and to spend some years in his native and much-loved County of   Cornwall. Mrs. Young then returned to the colony, and after residing for some time in Kent Town removed to Glenelg, where she has since lived with her family, consist- ing of several sons and daughters. She had arranged to spend Eastertime at Stirling West, and went there on Tuesday week. She walked to the village on leaving the train at Mount Lofty Station, and seemed in perfect health all the day. While dressing the next morning, however, she had a seizure of the heart, and was found dead in her room. Mrs. Young was 57 years of age at the time of her death. The funeral took place in the West-terrace Cemetery on Good Fri- day morning. The service at the grave was conducted by the Rev. C. Manthorpe, of Glenelg. Among those present were Mrs. Young's sons, a number of the old scholars of the Adelaide Educational Institution, in- cluding Messrs. F. W. Bullock (who, with Mr. Oliver Young, Mr. J. L. Young's brother and a former teacher of the school, is an executor of the deceased lady's estate), W. Bickford, H. Bickford, P. Auld, H. Noltenfus, and Stevens. Mr. Uren, a former master at the school, and Mr. J. V. Smith were also amongst those at the grave. Death of Mr. W. H. Rosman.— On the evening of April 14, Police-constable O'Dono hue reported at the City Watchhouse, that at about half-past 8 o'clock he found the dead body of Mr. W. H. Rosman. sen. in a right-of-way off Pulteney - Street, near Rundle- street. The policeman's attention was called to the body by a woman who was passing at the time. The body was almost immediately conveyed to the city morgue, and the City Coroner informed. The late Mr. Rosman, who was 67 years of age, arrived in South Australia from England some forty years ago. He- had been connected with mining in the County of Cornwall, and whilst in this colony occa sionally brought his knowledge to bear in the columns of the Register in seeking to develop the mineral resources of South Australia. Shortly after his arrival in the colony Mr. Rosman entered the Register Office as accountant, in which position he remained till 1851-2, when he left with his family for the Victorian diggings. Staying in Victoria for some time he returned to resume his old posi tion as chief accountant in this office, which he continued to hold for some years. He then spent some time on our local goldfields, and subsequently was associated with the commercial department of the Advertiser. He was a first class accountant, and had abilities   of a high order. Of late years he experienced much trouble and met with severe reverses. At the time of his death he was conducting an agency business in Adelaide. Mr. Rosman leaves a widow and a large family besides two sons by a former marriage. The official enquiry into the circumstances attending the death took place at the Elephant and Castle Hotel on Friday afternoon. Evidence showed that the body of the deceased was found in a lane near Pulteney-street on Thursday evening, and a post-mortem ex amination established the belief that death was due to shock caused by deceased falling, probably while in a fit. The Jury returned a verdict accordingly.
