Lovers of natural history, passing through Salt Lake city, have always been glad to make the acquaintance of Professor Barfoot of the museum of natural history, and will be sorry to learn of his decease which it seems occurred on the 23rd of April last. He engaged in a wide correspondence with distinguished scientific men all over the world. He was born at Warwick Castle, England, on the 29th of March 1816; was a lineal descendent of Robert Bruce, and. at the time of his death was heir to the Earldom of Crawford. He embraced Mormonism in London in 1856, and in 1865 immigrated to Salt Lake city, where he lived till he died.
