THE LATE MR. B. H. HUGHES.

Mr. Leonard J. Hughes, writing from England, informs us of the death of Mr. Bristow H. Hughes, which took place on November 8, at his residence, Egremont, Cheshire. The deceased gentleman was one of the early pioneers of South Australia, and will be well remembered by many old settlers of his day. He came to the colony in 1843, and in partnership with his brother, the late Mr. Herbert B. Hughes, of Athelney, Adelaide, settled on the now famous Booyoolie Runs, his brother, the late Mr. John Hughes, having settled some years earlier on the Bundaleer Runs. He was a great lover of the thoroughbred horse, and when he returned to England , purchased and exported several well-known horses to his brother Herbert.
