We notice that Mr. W. H. Clarke, photographer, has commenced business in those premises lately occupied by Messrs. Batt and Richards, Lambton Quay. Many of our readers will remember Mr. Clarke, who for a longtime was in the service of one of our leading photographers, giving every satisfaction. Before commencing operations, Mr. Clarke found it necessary to make improvements. He has built a large gallery on the most modern and approved principles, and has just received by one of our late mails a speciality for children. We have seen some of his productions, and think that a visit to his studio would be instructive and interesting. We hope Mr. Clarke will be successful in his undertaking.

Obituary - Catherine Ann Douslin.
It is with very great regret that we record the death of one of our earliest settlers in the person of Mrs Catherine Ann Douslin, wife of William Douslin, architect, who passed away on Saturday night after a short illness in her seventy-first year.

Mrs Douslin was a native of Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, and came to the Colony in '59 or '60, arriving in Dunedin just before the discovery of gold in Otago. Upon the opening of the Wakamarina the family removed to Havelock, where Mr Douslin engaged in mining pursuits with some considerable success, and subsequently acquired an extent of pastoral property.

Owing to the some what rapid falling off in the mining population, Mr Douslin determined to resume the practice of his profession, and removed his family to Blenheim and soon made a large business, many of the principal buildings in the town being evidences of his skill.

The late Mrs Douslin was well known to an extensive circle of friends, who will mourn her loss, and was noted for her kindly and benevolent disposition, and though of a very retiring disposition was always ready with her experienced advice, and truly Christian feeling, to assist and help others in their need. The deceased lady leaves a large family, all of whom are grown up. Of these Mrs W. Pickering, Misses Edith and Minnie Douslin reside in the province. The late Mr Paul Douslin pre-deceased his mother not long since; Miss Nina and brother Mr A. Douslin live in Wellington, Mr A. Douslin at the Thames while Mr Douslin and Horace are at present in Bulawayo, Africa. To them we extend heartfelt sympathy in their irreparable loss.
