The friends of Mr. F. J. Naish, formerly, of Glenelg, will regret to hear of his death which took place at the Private Hospital, North Adelaide, on Tuesday.  The deceased was 60 years of age, and was born at Winchester, England.  He came to South Australia in 1868, after serving his, articles in architecture in the old country, and spent three years in the Northern Territory, being principally engaged in gold mining.  Mr. Naish was the first in South Australian to volunteer for the Zulu, war in 1879, but a contingent was not dispatched, and his services were not availed of.  Subsequently he pursued his profession in the metropolis.  For many years he was architect to the South Australian Company, and to the Adelaide University having designed the new wing the foundation stone of which was laid by the Prince of Wales, while he also was the architect for the Elder Hall and numerous other buildings.  Mr. Naish served for some time in the Hydraulic Engineer's Department of the Civil Service. He was a councillor in the Brighton Corporation until recently, but otherwise took little active interest in public affairs.  His wife and three sons-Messrs. R. L., W. J., and C. L. Naish survive him.
