We regret to notice the death of an old South Australian, Mr. E. J. F. [Edward James Frederick] Crawford. The deceased gentleman came to the colony some forty years ago, and shortly after his arrival was connected with the Southern Australian newspaper. On the proprietor of that journal, Mr. A. Macdougall, disposing of his interest in it, Mr. Crawford's connection with it ceased, and some time subsequently he entered into business as a brewer at Hindmarsh. After carrying on the brewing for some years, during which he succeeded more than once in carrying off first honours for the excellency of his productions, he left for the other colonies, and on the 15th inst. died at Sale, in Gippsland, at the ripe age of 71 years.
