    • Obituary:
      Mr. Richard Musson, a well known Portonian and a colonist of 42 years, died on Saturday. The deceased arrived in this colony in the Omega in 1850, and shortly afterwards settled in North Adelaide, where he remained until the discovery of the Bendigo diggings led him to try his fortune on the goldfields. He did not remain there very long, but returned to Adelaide and entered into business as a contractor. On relinquishing this he went to the Port and entered the employ of the firm of Messrs. J. Hart & Co., afterwards merged into the Adelaide Milling Company, with whom he served until the time of his death, a period of 25 years. He was highly respected by his employers, who as a testimony of the esteem in which they held him forwarded a letter of condolence to the bereaved family and a wreath to be placed on the grave.
