It is with regret that I record the death of one of the oldest residents of the district, Mr. Joseph Duggan. He took suddenly ill last Saturday morning at 9 o'clock, and expired on Sunday at 11am, at tho ago of 73. He leaves a widow. The funeral to the Colbinabbin cemetery yesterday consisted of 44 vehicles and 24 horsemen , and showed plainly the respect and esteem in which he was held.

OBITUARY. — One of the largest funerals which has ever been seen in this district took place on Tuesday, when the remains of the the late Mr. Joseph Duggan were interred in the local cemetery. The deceased gentleman, who died on Sunday, was widely known and highly respected, and the deepest sympathy is felt on all sides for his widow and relatives. He was a native of Tipperary, Ireland, and came out to this colony over 45 years ago. On arrival in Victoria he went to Bendigo, where he engaged in mining very successfully for some years. About 25 years ago he with his brother-in-law (Mr. Ed. Flood, of Bendigo), and two brothers came up to this district, and selected land on the Cornella Creek. The deceased gentleman remained here up to the time of his death, and earned the esteem of all who were brought in contact with him.
